Miners want wages that will enable them to live they are tired of starv ing. They want a trifle of that pros perity. The tariff gives the coal operators 67 cents a ton custom duty, to "protect the home miner from the competition of the pauper labor of Canada," and surely the miners should get the biggest share of this.

Some time ago an enthusiastio re. publican at Atlantic, Iowa, proposed that as soon as McKinley signed the new tariff bill this conntry should have a grand celebration of the event. A few politicians and the American Economist" endorse the Idea, but the project bas evidently been froxen solid by the reception which the outrageous measure of robbery has met at the hands of the people. Still the celebration idea is a good one for the benafiolariee to act npon. and shonld be held in Now York. They ought to have a parade and msroh in the following order: Platoon of Mounted Pollee.

I utpwat wawij vpoai vaamy wow Their fltennire and Ramaiaed Alwajra la Their Aerial Cave Tho Monastery of St. StepheDa. .' One of the most curious scenes on the Thessalian frontier is to be found at Kalibaki, some 60 miles by rail above Trikhala. The town lies on a plain which is backed by. the extraordinary rocks of ,Mteora, rising precipitously to a gteat height and commanding the marked attention of travelers.' In places the cliffs ascend like a wall to a height of 2,000 feet They are rough, free from verdure and disfigured by innu merable holes and caves all over their face. It is these caves and remains of monkish- dwellings in them that give the rocks of Meteora the strange, almost prehistoric appearance that has made them famous. There are several monasteries at Kalibaki. The largest is St. Stephen's. Unlike the other monasteries, this is reached-by a drawbridge thrown across a yawning chasm. Tnisi ia one of the largest of the monasteries of Meteora and has a girest chamber especially fit ted up for visitors that is to say, there are three iron beds, in it, and it is only courteous to surmise that the wadded coverlet and single sheet that go to make up a'UreeJc bed once were new. ' The hegonmcnos is most hospitable. He gives his visitors excellent monastic wine, a dinner of muny weird courses and is himself very good company. As usual,, there are two churches in this monastery, the smaller of the two pos sessing some very fair ikons set in beautifully caryed frames, and one very old picture, date'd 387. - ' The large cburek consists of a nave, antecbapel, with the body of the church under the dome, which is decorated with the usual half length figure of Christ. Here are seen some of the in lafd ivory and mother of pearl stools ami lec turns wbich at one tame were the staple work ef the Meteora, monks. All the manuscripts of any value have been. removed to Athens. ;A long build ing at the'.right of the brUge contains the cells of the monks, whach orn into a -dark eoeered corsidor. Intiiuoofwar tflcse -monasteries aro used' as places of refuge Not the least carious feature of these unique rocks of Meteora are the holes and caves 'which literally pepper the face ofthe cliffs iu places. In many cases these retveats of the hermitsajof St. Anthony are merely cages. At, a distance, they took, some of them, like big. birdcugea bang np against the face of the cliff. As dwell ings they are all exceedingly primitive. The Thessalian hermit did not ask much 'of life. A rocky rloar to lie on, bars ortailiags to keep hint from fall ing out of his hole, a shaky ladder down which he might now and then descend to earth and a basket and erring to.letdown for supplies were all he needed in addition to his crucifix and other religious necessities. These aerial caves were occupied in the foarteenth century. Thousands of hermits, judging from the remains of habitations, must at one time or another have sought refuge in these cliffs. Few of theintcan now be entered, for the laddeas have for the most part fallen away. Seemingly the way a hermit proceed ed was to choose a hole that took his fancy. Up to this he ran a ladder. Then, driving poles into the sock before the cave, he built out a little platform. This he roofed in and surrounded with a wall made of sticks or dried grass. From one platform to another, these anchorites ran up thoir ladders until the whole face of the rook was alive with these hermits of St Anthony. After1 the time honored fashion of re ligious recluses, the cliff dwelling her mits of St Anthony depended wholly on charity for their snstenanoe. Far np in their airy eaves the' spent their days and nights in prayer arid contemplation. When hungry or thirsty, they let down their baskets to tho ground, and when these were filled they pulled them np again. The devout people of Kalibaki be lieved that these hermits were a special oharge upon them and kept them well supplied with bread nd water. Every morning men, women and children could be seen tramping to thecliffs to fill the baskets that v -ere let down by the strings from above. And so the hermits were able to live thi-ir quiet, lazy lives without a single worldly care. New York World. Aa Opinion of ConMinf. The Rev. H. S. Haweis expresses this uncomplimentary opinion of the lute Roscoe Conhfing in his book of tra-reis, latetj published: "At Bigelow House in New York I dined with Conkling, the craek lawyer, talker and, I shonld say, characteristic- windbag of the peri od. Conkling seamed to me an insufferably vulgar, loud, clever person utterly conceited and self centered. Cenklfng talked' through yon and ever yon and all around you and quoted poetry whether yon wanted to hear it or not and answered his own riddles and asked questions which he never 'meant yon to answer, being of the nature of Cicero's rhetorical inquir ies in the Verrine and Cataline orations. I can recollect notb ing that Conkling said only the abiding flavor of hit ar- kreganea andwmeeit;" Drlttol. A drink ; called aJrithel is popular in the north of Eq gland.

Queretaro was a town befest) the Spanish aenquest arid was maCr a city in 1C55. A legend of Queretaro is tbat an Otomite chief, Fernando de Tapia by name, undertook to convert the city to Christian; ty in a way tbat seems novel to as, but was common enough to his day. He came from Tula with a challenge to the people of Queretaro to a fair stand np fight If he won, the people surviving were to be baptizgd. The challenge was accepted, but while the fight was in progress a dark cloud came up and the blessed Santiago was seen in the heavens with a fiery cross, whereupon the people of Queretaro gave np and were baptized. They set np a atone cross to commemorate the event on the site of the present church of Santa Cruz. There is scarcely a church in Mexico which has not a legend of this kind attached to it The town ia identified with the history of Mexico. Here the treaty of peaee between the United States and Mexico was ratified in 1S48, and here Maximilian made hi last stand in 1867, was ebiiged. to sur render and was shot Everybody is'ia teres ted hi Maximilian mainly oa ac count of poor Carlotta. Maximilian waa executed on the Cerro de las Cam pans and with him Generals Miramfh and Media. The place is mrked by three little crosses of stone. The two gen erals were killed at the first volley, but Maximilian, who had requested thatbe be shot through the body that his mother might look upon hisiace, was only wounded, and a secoud firing was required to kill him. The emperor hud been led to believe tbat Carlotta was dead. She became in sane from grief and was kept in an asy lum for many years, but she still lives and still mourns for her dead husband and the loss of her throne. The United Statea government protested against the execution of Maximilian, but in vain. Juarez refusing to spare him. There are all kinds of relics of Maxi milian iu Mexico the Yturbide thea ter, where he was.tried and condemned, the table on which the death warrant was signed, the wooden stools on which the prisoners 'sat during the trial and the coffin of Maximilian, whoso remains were subsequently sent to Austria and buried at Miramar. I confess I da not share in any sentiment of pity for Max imilian, who was an adventurer .with out a shadow of right in. Mexico and took the chances of war. He was, it is true, a victim of Napoleon and of bis own ambition and was very scuroily treated by those who had induced him to set up his throne iu Mexico, but to have released him would have been to establish a claimaut for the Mexican throne. It was better that this man should die than .that thousands should be sacrificed in the wars he would sure ly have fomented if he had been allowed to live.- Philadelphia Ledger ' Domaa.
