Yolk Uncle Samuel Jias within the
xbort space of a year twisted the
British lion's tail, tweaked the noee
of the unspeakable Turk, and put t

Is the present house of congress
there are 21 1 straight republicans,
105 democrats, six populists and one
silver party congressman. In the
next house there will be 204 straight
republicans, 124 democrats, 15 fu

Senator Mok;an in the course of
his remarks in the senate yesterday
said: '-If war with the United
States is necessary to reconcile thf
Spanish people to the loss of Cubs
by foreign conquest we shall be com
pelled to meet that emergency." Hp
characterized the Spanish as "rob
bers, out-throat, assassins, ravish
trs and pirates." At the close of his
address the senate agreed to his res
olution calling for information on
Competitor and other cases.

with currency questions, indepen

ability to make his views felt on the

Tribune driving at?
Secretakv Van Cleave, of the
republican state committee, says ht
proposes to take to Springfield foi
inauguration day 10 of the most ex
pert detectives belonging to Pinker
ton's agency, chosen with special
reference to their ability to arrest
pickpockets and hotel thieves. Mr.
Van Cleave says the Pinkerton men
will be taken to Springfield armed
with full police authority, and the
thieves will te locked up on sight.
William Pinkerton will be especially
iuvited to go to the capital and su
pervise the round-up. The state re
publican machine does not appear to
nave niucu conndence in the honesty
cf the grand army of oflice seekers
that will congregate in Springfield
auoui the nth of next January.

tctly what part noise iu Xew York city
f lays in the death rato nnei the sick
list, ta: every physician .knows it must
be considerable. Often the phvsician
In his daily rounds finds it necessary
to prescribe "perfect quiet" iu order
that the flickering spark of life re

hack to a healthy flame, yet in nine
eases out ot ten that perfect quiet lie
deems so important cannot be bad
owing to the noise from the street Es
pecially is this true in warm weather,
when windows must be kept open.
The makers Xt unnecessary noise in
New York are not confined to any one
class. AH are more or less guilty, from
the church people to the organ grinder
and the street peddler. Any one who
studies this subject and observes care
fully will be astonished and disgusted
at the reckless disregard of each for the
health, peace and comfort of all others.
If you should go for a walk in i lfta
avenue on a fine afternoon and all sorts
and conditions of people were to begin
to assault you with switches, you would
call the police. They would be prompt
ly arrested and properly punished.
What for? They have not killed yon or
maimed you or drawn any blood, and
you are apparently none the worse for
these assaults. What they have done is
to irritate the serve terminations of one
of your five -senses viz., that of touch,
or the tactile sense, and through the
nerves of this sense they have made you
conscious of painful sensations. This is
exactly the treatment you do receive
from these same people by their un
necessary assaults on another sense
viz., that of hearing. But should yon
ask the authorities to interfere in this
case, you would likely be arrested your
self and your sanity inquired into.

Architects and naval officers is left halt

And the very infrequency cf actual
Sghting at sea during a period in which
he navies of the world have been com

a one sided or vastly exaggerated esti

The school of experiment needs correc
tion, but the school of experience often
lacks balance. It is apt to forget that
the experience which it generalizes is
always fragmentary and often irrele

tor, armor became the one thing need
ful. After Lissa, because. Tegethoff hap

was to be thn deciding factor in all fu

Danube and Black sea coast in 1877 and
1878 brought about a similar apotheosis
of the torpedo. And tho China-Japa
nese war is likely to sow as confident a
conviction that the navy which has

all playfellows by his ascetic though
well meaning father, and ho grew up
to manhood in bitter poverty, having
sometimes literally nowhere to lay his

became a distinguished scholar, a versa

the military schools at St. Petersburg.
He was growing iu fame and favor

The continued grnntine of the pis is
of interest as revealing something of the
conditions or life of his wild ancestors.
A herd of swine scattered in the long
grass or among the brackens of a Euro
pean forest would soon lose sight of one
another. But the crnuts of each would
still advertise his presence' to his neigh
bors, and 6o the individual members of
the herd would not lose touch with the
main body. Then there are grunts and

tate tho ingenious Mr. Garner and take
a photograph to the nearest pigsty, lie
might get material to make up a book

wild pig could, by taking note of tbe
pitch and emphasis of the grunts to
right and left of him, tell pretty much
