A Biu. forbidding legislators accepting

Thursday of this wetk will be Thomas
A. Edison's birthday. He is 45 years
old, and, during the past 10 years, has
earned the ri(?ht to be spoken of as the
brightest light io the electric world.

wagon containing a cabinet organ and a
tank of hot coffee. Music and coffee ire

a large "can" trade formerly erjoyed by
the neighboring saloons.
The caves of the world are divided by
geologists into five principal classes, viz:
1. The caveru excavated in limestone
rock by subterranean streams. 2. The
channels and chambers hollowed out by
the atcendirg waters of hot spr'mg?. 3.
The sea caves and grottoes, worn by the
battering of the waves against soft spots
in shore cliffs. 4 The cavities formtd

teems very confident of his availability

when asked whether, in the contingency
that Mr. Blaine reconsidered his decision
and entered the presidential list, be would

plied, substantially: "I'm in the held to
stay. Even if Mr. Blaine should become
a candidate I ran see no reason why I
should yield to him any more than to any

language to indulge in for a political ob

the strength of Mr. Blaine, were he a

mater has pre fited very largely by the rise
in Reeding stock since Wednesday. Tbe
postmaster general's share in the in
creased value of the stock is understood
to foot up over $1,000,000. A promi
nent gentleman from Philadelphia is
quoted as follows: 'The head of the
posttflire department is a very lucky
man. The net profit on bis interet t this
. week is more than f 1,000.000. It is a
big sum, but he deserves it, for he held
on under very discouraging circum
stances. A,l of his troubles a year or so
ago were brought about by his heavy
interest in Reading. He was in a tigbt
place, so tight a place that he would
have gone to tbe wall if the Drezels bad
not come to his assistance. They helped
him to the extent of 500.000 and offered
to assist him with as much more if ne

and turned the corner, though, at last.

St. Louis Republic.
It is hardly probable tbat Mr. Blaine
wishes to retire from the Harrison cabinet
before March 4. 18J3. It is probable
tbat be wishes Mr. Harrison to be re
nominated. If he disliked Mr. Harrison
as heartily as it is supposed in Washing
ton that he does, he would not be likely
on tbat account to try to defeat bim for
renomination means almost certain de
feat. But if he did wish to defeat tbe nomin
ation, be could do it far more effectively
from inside than from outside the cabinet.
A word to his Jo Manlejs would be
enough to have Harrison tripped up at
the critical moment in the convention.
All the indications show, first, that Mr.
Blaine is in favor of Mr. Harrison's re
nomination, and, second, that he believes
Mr. Harrison will be defeated when re
nominated. In politics the clumsy poli
tician tries opeDly and violently to pre
vent the man he does not like from get
ting the nomination, but politicians of
tbe skill and eminence of Mr. BUice of
Maine and John H. Pohlman of St. Louis
are sometimes known to turn tbe other
cheek to the smiter; to return good for
evil; to help thess who have humiliated
them to get something they want v r
badly, so tbat having it they may enjoy
the results of it. It is tbe fool's bolt that
is soon shot. Mr. Blaine is a very old

"SWING ING" IS THE NATIONAL SPORT
OF THE HARDY RACE
People of Switserland Take Great Inter
est la All Kinds of Outdoor Exercise,
How a Great Wrestling Tournament la
Conducted In the Open Air.
A traveler in Switzerland who does not
at once rash up into the high mountains,
but lingi rs on a little in the towns, will be
struck with the attention which the Swiss
give to physical sports.
The yoith of the towns, during the good
weather, seem to devote every moment of
leisure to some form of physical exercise.
In the sclools, gymnastics is a recognized
part of tl e triiniiiK, both of boys and girls;
and in w hutever direction you go in tbe
country, you may be sure to find school ex
cursions, some of them for long distances.

of their teachers told me that the school j
had liiretl a li ouse in the mountains and
that duri ig the summer each class went
there regularly for a fortnight or three
weeks at a time, spending the whole of
every day in Alpine exclusions and return
ing at night.
At all times of the day youths may lie

Kvcry s unmer day in a large town like
Zurich se ms a festival, for at almost the
first turn of the street you are likely to j
hetir the i msic of a band and then meet a
procession gay with banners, wreaths aud ;
a .i:kat swiss rpoi:t.
The greatest of till Sw iss sports is un-1
doubt ly v restiing. and the wrestling
match is tl e central point of interest in all :
contests. The mountaineers have prac- '
ticed for as.es a peculiar kind of wrestling
known a.- schwingen. or swinging. Of
late years this has been taken up by the '
turners ami town gymnasts, and they are
liegiiiiiiiig to compete w ith their teachers.
ISetwecti the lithe townsman and the
solid, heavy mountaineer it has become al- j
most a question of agility against strength, j
ti'reat was the interest all over Swit.er- !
land when it was announced that there
would lie m Zurich a w restling match of
all Sw ilerl md lietw ecu turner-and moun
taineer, especially as the gjinna-tic so
cieties of ea-t Switzerland had not taken
part in thes ; matches. ;
The groin d for the games could not have
been better hoscn. It was the rille range,
where there is target practice every Mon- I
day a'ternom a broad, screen plain, sur
rounded by ".rees, above which rose at one ,
end the spin's anil towers of Zurich, while '
at the other loomed up the ridge of the
The thousands of spectators, standing or
seated, form d a large oval, in the middle
of which, during the wrestling match, was
the ring. Around this lay or sat on the
ground the combatants and their friends,
while at a table were seated the judges ,
and the umpire. )
Alpine w-estling or swinging differs
from other forms of this sport, in the first
hold being compulsory and not voluntary.
The wrestlers wear short trousers of thick
cloth, w hich are survivals of the old motin- '
taineer peasant costume, but which are
now put over their other clothes, buttoned
tightly iiroiu d the waist and rolled up on
the thigh to the utmost. Kuril wrestler
must with his right hand take hold of the
band of the o her's w resiling trousers and
with the lef; hand the roll oil his oppo
nent's right 1 'g.
This positii n once taken, the choice of
hold becomes voluntary, except that either
one hand or the other must, if holding at
all, grasp the trousers of the opponent. No
throw counts unless the fallen uian touches
the ground vith lioth shoulders or with
the length of his back: and if both parties
lire incapable of further movement for a
certain uumler of seconds w ithout beiug
thrown, it is minted a draw.
A CONTEST OF KXI'KUTS.
At the open ng of the contests two names
are called out, and instant lv a hush of cu
riosity and txpectation comes over the
great assemblage. On one side rises a
lithe, slender built young turner, and on
the other a ycuug peasant froui Kmmcii
tlial a picture of health and strength,
with muscles and sinews like those of an
OX. They hastily don their wrestling trou
sers, look at each other for a moment, shake
hands and take the conventional hold.
At first they stund as far apart from each
other as they can, with heads down like
two butting animals, each feeling, as it
were, for some sign of yielding on the part ,
of the other. Suddenly, with a quick
movement, the Emmeuthaler has succeeded
iu getting the turner's head under one of
his arms. This lasts but for a moment:
for the turner sinks first on one knee, then
gradually lies at nearly full length on the
ground, easily extricating bis head and
attempting to pull the Kmmenthaler over,
The Emmeuthaler change's his hold, and
while still gr;.sping the waistband with
one hand, seizes the turner around the
body with the other, and endeavors to roll
him over. But it is impossible. The tur-
ner supports himself ou the ground with
his hands and toes and seems immovable.

the loud cheers of his backers. But no;

Expressions That Seem Peculiar to One

Perhaps tbe commonest errors that
Scotchmen even well educated Scotch
men make are in the use of "shall" and
"wilL" Everybody, we suppose, knows
the good old story of the Scotchman drown

be drowned, and nobody shall help me."

Scotch people have some curious expres
sions in connection w ith food. Thus they
"sup" their broth, and they seak of broth
or porridge in the plural, e. g., "I'd like a

word "sweet' is applied in ways strange to
Knglish usage, as "sweet butter" for fresh
butter, "sweet milk" for new milk. A

usually reversed in Scotland, us "milk and

orse the length of
Ilighgate Hill, meaning of course that the
animal was to carry hint as far as that
locality. Pitt regretted that he had not a
horse of the required length, but sent him
his longest. It is quite common, too, to
hear an anxious mother in Scotland telling
her children to "change their feet," instead
of their shoes, on a wet day.
Besides changing his feet or himself, as
the expression is w hen he is thoroughly
wet a Scotchman does other equally
strange things, or, at nil events, speaks of
doing them; such as looking over a win
dow, going into a box in search of some
thing, sitting into the fire when he is cold,
walking through his sleep, sitting under
his clergyman when he attends his church
or putting his horses iuto his carriage. He
has also the unusual power of being able
to feel a smell. As if fearful to commit
himself to an unwarranted statement, he
can only say thai he is "quite better," not
that he is quite well.

significance: it is equivalent to good look

you that he did not "mind" what you said
he is not guilty of delilicratcly paying no

fault. And a Scotch father who '"chal
