A Pbbnstlvahia paper has discov ared tha gender of the newspaper, speaking of a contemporary as a she." Thle discovery makes clear tha reason why it ia useless to fight tha newspaper "she" always haa tha laat word. Stetber Malloet, the new sens ator from Florida, la something of an accident, but nevertheless his name is familiar in politics. It was his father who was expelled from the Unit $ ates senate along with Jeff DaTis and other secession leaders. Now the whirligig of time restores the name to the senate roster. The tariff extremists in the senate are feeling cheerful oyer the first test vote involving the new bill. They feel that they will ba able to carry their point in spite of the fact that Florida has broken a deadlock and eleoted a senator opposed to them. But wait till they hear the Toice of the people Quinoy Herald. Evertbodt," observes the Yar mouth (Mass.) Register, "knows how to ran a newspaper, and what to pat in it to make it Taluabla and inter esting. An exception may possibly ba mada in tha case of tha man who owns tha plant and pays tha bills." It la noticeable, also, that the man who la the most profuse in advice either borrows hia neighbor's paper or forgets to pay his subscription. Bet. T. De Witt Talmaoe sagely observes that aa newspiper whose columns overflows with advertise, meats of business men has mora In laenec in attracting attention to and building up a city or town than any other agency that can be employed. People go where there la business. Capital and labor will locate where there is an enterprising eommanity. No power oa earth is so strong to buildup a towa aa a newspaper well patronised, and He power should be appreciated." Hatale Trulairt mt rati ta The hospital physician should be a man of the most thorough methods and the meet extreme con serration. Ho aboald ba chosen as much for hia prac tical good sense as for hia skill in diag nosing disease. He should be a man with intuitions and ought to be able to decide almost at a glance whether a pa tient ia suffering from brain trouble or alcoholism. There have been of late a great many instances when thia mistake baa been made, and it ie by no means creditable to the hospital authorities when each blunders are made. One of the latest exploits of a hospi tal doctor waa to order a cold bath for a consumptive patient who showed some symptoms of hysteria. Shortly after tha bath the woman died. Just why a doc tor should order such treatment com- mttftrt. DR. COK-NAUGTTOtf. SpacUIkt, 4Mlrasareot, f i Davaapert. Iowa. V S7 Iliilll ell as the medioal nto- woold like very much to know. Hospital are la toe main supported by the people, and the people hare a right to good treatment and courtesy at tha hands of those who are put In charge of each institutions. Failing to reoeiva thia, the pnblio has also the right to demand an investigation of the situation and to demand the punish ment of those who are guilty of such nn professional and inhnman conduct and that their places be filled by those who are more Intelligent and better fit ted for the duties and responsibilities of such a place. New York Ledger. ' BUtaday mt taa What haa been regarded by some as the birthday of the railway locomotive occurred on Sept 27, 182S, with Ste phenson aa the father of the event, The Stockton and Darlington railway bad been built, and, through bia persistent importunities, laid with iron, instead of wooden rails. It had been intended merely for none draft, but the inventor prevailed upon the owners to allow him a trial of bia steam locomotive. Stephenson himself was the driver on tbat occasion, and, before a tremendous crowd of curious and for the most part incredulous people, he drew a train of nearly 80 wagons, loaded with passen gers and coal, at a speed of 13 to 15 miles per hour. Thus the first train that ever carried passengers made its journey in safety, and the enthusiasm of the multitude was Indescribable. But, notwithstanding this demonstra tion, the locomotive was still unmerci fully ridiculed by the majority. Nor was this ridicule confined to the ignor ant classes. The ablest engineers con tended that it was ridiculous to suppose that steam could ever be practically em ployed in competition with horse power for transportation. Almost incredible as It may now seem, it is a fact tbat politi cal economists inveighed against the rail way and the engine as constituting an Imaginary reform, which, even if success ful which was very doubtful would deprive stage drivers, teamsters and inn keepers of their livelihood. It was in the face of an almost universal opposi tion, of the wild, unreasonable kind, that a few men, led by the great Ste phenson, labored steadily onward and finally established the railroad and the locomotive as institutions of the land. North American Review. Welsh Babbit. Welsh rabbit is not a corruption of any rare-bit It Is simply a colloquial name for a dish and has numerous kin dred names. Here is a tolerably com plete list, the first four being of Amer ican, the others of British origin: "Jer sey lightning, "meaning whisky; "Cape Cod turkeys," meaning codfish; "Al bany beef," meaning sturgeon; "Mary land chicken, "meaning lobster; "New haven broth," meaning boiled mussels; "Digby chickens," "Glasgow magis trates," "Gourock bams," "Dunbar wethers," "Norfolk capons," all mean ing red herrings; "Field Lane ducks," meaning boiled sheepshead and onions; "Bombay ducks," meaning dried fish; "Bristol milk, "meaning sherry; "Irish apricots, "Irish fruit," "Munster plums," meaning potatoes. Then an "Essex stile" is a ditch; an "Essex lion," a calf; a "Jerusalem pony," a donkey. So Welsh rabbit is one of many territorial slang names of articles of food. New York Sun. A Calfnar? Item.

Hdnara HEAVY DUTIES ON -UHEHaXT v f til! !WU1 Deiiv the Peeple ef m Faerie The following are some of the com-' meats of a man well acquainted with linens and the linen industry upon tha senate doctored Dingiey bill: The proposed duties on linen goods under the amended Dingiey bill are heavier than ever, although it baa been claimed tbat the senate had reduoad rates. These goods paid for many years 3f per cent and yielded a steady rev enue to the government. The rates now proposed vary from SO to 109 per cent, and the burden f alia heaviest on low and medium goods, which are chiefly used in the homes of the poorer people. A cheap tablecloth now selling at re tail at 25 cents per yard will have to be sold at 37 cents to 40 cents if the quality be kept up. Medium linens for children' summer blouses will be assessed 99V, per cent, and the retail price will have to go np accordingly. Linen forma the raw material for many American industries, aa linings for clothing and other purposes where strength and durability are required. Such goods will be advanced 20 to 30 percent It is claimed that thia advance ia not necessary for revenue, but the effect will be that .the people will in many cases substitute something cheaper, and thus be deprived of this useful fabric, and the revenue will be corres pondingly diminished. It is said that linen goods can be made here, but thia has been tried again and again, and ex cept in the case of a few low crashes haa been a failure, on ing to the climate and other difficulties, but even if they could be made here the rates are un necessarily oppressive. The entire cost ot weaving linen goods in Europe ia about 7 to 10 per cent the celling price of the article here, and hi Amer ica the cost should not be at the very outside more than double this percent, age, so that, even if .republican theories be true, a protection of 35 per cent should be ample to allow for higher wages and extra profits for our man ufacturers. j.s fcca'l i It is possible speculators may start mills on the strength-of these excessive rates, sell the stock and then step out, leaving the unfortunate laborer and manufacturer to face the difficulties of the situation as best-they can. The la borer probably, having been brought here from Europe (for labor ia on the free list), with unreasonable expecta tions, will be left to join tha, army of disappointment and discontent ' Why should these exorbitantly high rates be assessed on an article more or leas in use in every household in the land, and the cost of Eving so much increased in these days of keen competition and small profits? Why should the plain people be taxed to put more money in the pockets of the rich? If the wealthy manufacturers want to make experi ments, let them do so at their own cost, not tax the poor f orthat purpose. car Trast Praata Clack.. The trusts have a cinch on Dingiey bill profits. Of coarse they will make many times more if the bill becomes law in anything like its present shape, but they are already-engaged in taking part of their-profits. Sugar has -risen considerably in an ticipation of greatly increased duties, and merchants all over the country are laying in stores because still higher prices are expected. The sugar trust is consequently busy and rolling up prof its. In April it imported 757,799,527 pounds of raw sugar, valued-at $14,747, 139. ' An extra profit of one-half cent per pound on this amount which is al ready realize or guaranteed waia nearly $4,000,000 to the-trust '; f ''' If the bill is two mojrtha longer in Its passage, the trust will surely pocket 910,000,000 extra profits before the bill becomes law. Whosays protection Is not a good thSng? And why shouldn't Senator Aldrioh push, it along and In turn get his street railway syndicates pushed along by the sugar trust? lent this reciprocity?
