Tbeo. Nclsok, Secretary.
The following resolution was adoDted by the
Democratic Stale Central Committee, February
22, 1894. ,
He it revolved. That It is this sens of this Com
mitlee. that the Anstralian Ballot taw applies lo
the election of officers at the anuual town o eet
Ingtoall elections ezct pt as specially excepted
in said law, and this committee recommeud that
all elections to be held for town officers this
spring, he held under the provisions and according
10 tne letter or earn law.
That must be attributed to Senator
Cullom as a cunning piece of political
strategy the appointment of John R.
Tanner, the disturbing element of the re
publican party in Illinois, as sub-treat
urer ia Chicago. The appointment is an
evidence of the fact that while Cullom
leves Fiftr no less, he loves harmony
hi part; in a presidential year more, but
it was not made until the senator wh?
looks like Lincoln was sure which way
the cat was to jump and that Fifcr had
the pull in the state. The trouble is,
howevtr, that Tanner is as sharp as they
make them, and while be may be con
tented with his federal appointment, it is
not entirely unlikely that be will yet keep
bis eye on affairs of slate, and it is not to
be expected he will do an? very great
amount of work for his erstwhile friend
Mr. I'nvey and the Auditor's Office
The Chicago Tribune is afier Gen. Pa
vev with a sharp stick. In its is&ue of
Tuesday it says:
Mr Pavey's friends are indignant be
cause the Tribune has quoted from Gov
Fifer's message censuring his manage.. ent
of the auditor's office and because hi
conduct in defeating the Partridge bill
to establish the office of bank inepecto.
and insurance commissioner has been
commented on. But when it is pointed
out that the democrats are sure to use
the Quotations and the facts referred to if
Pavey is nominated. and that it is only fair
that reDubltcans 8h-.ll be warned oi mis
they have nothing to say- Represents

committee on insurance of ths house in

strangled and said.
"Every time I called a meeting of
the committee to consider this bill Mr
Pavey or his friends exerted them
selves to break a quorum. I tried it
couple of limes and gave it up as
helpless case. There never was such
active lobbying against any bill. Mr
Pavey's friends were to the foremo;
every time. He won. The bill was, in
my opinion, a good one and ought to
have been passed. Its passage, however,
would have du&inishel Mr. Pavey per
onisites. and so he sought to beat it.

Czar Reed at its bead.
Also, the state of Illinois on being
represented in congress by a majority of
members who will work and vote in the
interests of the great agricultural west, in
stead of the millionaire manufacturers in
the east; and especially in the fact that
we are now represented in the United
States senate hy that grand old staesmin
and advocate of the publ c rights, Senator
John M. Palmer.
We also congratulate the democracy of
the Eleventh congressional district on
their splendid victory at their last elec

candidacy of the Hon. Ben T. Cable, for
congress, and if nominated, we pledge

pi'itical contests heretofore, poitta

champion of the people's rights, the Hon

Children That Do Not Know How to Play.
A kindergarten teacher, at the Ifead of a
free kindergarten working amoug the des
perately poor and ignorant of a neighbor
ing city, speaks of the pathetic uuchildish
ness of the little creatures that she coaxes
into her schoolrooms. H nngry, weary and
cold; dirty, ragged aud sore; kicked, beat
en and s worn at; often themselves wicked
beyond I el ief, they seem to bave nothing
in common with joyous childhood save
smallness of stature and fewness of years.
They do uot know bow to play even, and
it is this ignorance of the underlying prin
ciple of child happiness which seems the
saddest I ri vat ion of all. The beautiful

slums has fallen. He fouud a company of
ragged urchins oneday playing at funerals
and quarreling over the privilege of being

stretched himself on the slimy stones of
the dingy court, folded his hands peaceful

and pincRt d looking as he was, looked the

little souls the shabby pageants of death

Feedtt g Plants with Coast Beef.
There is something to a woman's mind
paiufullyd.sillusioni7.ing in the discovery
that plants have a distinct nppetite for
flesh food, yet Mr. Francis Darwin has put
this lieyond all doubt by feeding one plant
with roast meat and treating another in
the ordinal y way, with the result that the
carnivorous plant not oidy produced S40
seeds to eery 100 produced by the other,
but the se -ds themselves were finer and
heavier. It was that now somewhat neg-
lected philosopher, Sam Weller, who pro-
pounded tut sweeping theory that "Natur's
a rum 'tin," and certainly this roast meat
idea is positively Gilbertian, !
I hope t le carnivorous tendencies of
plants will never be cultivated to the
extent of involving such items in our
butcher's bcoks as:

and a time should arrive when the resi j

be truly alaming, and the only resource
left to us poor women would be to sacrifice
our love of fljwers upon the altar of econ

able Remedy, Antipyrin.

It is beyond doubt that by some unex-
plained sorcery antipyrin possesses the
precious virtue of attenuating and even
suppressing pain instantaneously. But a
writer who thinks it high time to sound
an alarm makes the following statements
in regard to the perils that accompany its
beneficent effect. lie says: "It it not be
. forgotten that antipyrin, in spite of its ad
vantages and services, is an undoubted
foison, even a violent poison. The acci
dents attributed to it during the seven or
i-lght years that it has been known as a
wmwly are too numerous to count; and it
should be noted that the cases that come
to light are usually those in which there
has been the intervention of a medical man
with express prescriptions and doses ac
cording to rule. What, then, must be the
consequences of the daily use by guess
work which legions of persons, who suffer
from nervous pains make of antipyrin?
To suppress pain that is to say, the con
sciousness of disorder or disease is not to
suppress the malady. On the contrary, it
may be the creation of a dangerous illu

the springs of the circulatory system, the
nerves which govern the contraction and
dilatation of the blood vessels that anti
pyrin exercises its soothing influence.
There follows necessarily a slowing of the
circulation, more or less of an approach to
stagnation, of the blood, which becomes
thicker and tends to coagulate. There fol-'
lows an abatement in the elimination of
those ashes of life which are to the animal
organism what household refuse is to a
great city. It is true that antipyrin dead

i A medical journal explains that when,
by long steepiug and cooking, tea is con
verted into a strong decoction of tannin,
' as is often the case, milk is useful because
it converts the injurious tannin into a
! relatively harmless alhuminons tannate.
Neither the Chinese nor the Japanese, who
know how to make tea, use milk with it;
but with them the hot water is poured on
and off the leaves at table, and it is drunk
as soon as it becomes a pale straw color.
No' people in the world drink so much tea
as the Japanese, yet in Japan it is uever
injurious to the digestion, as by their
method of preparation the tannin is not ex
tracted from the leaves.
How to Ketain Youthful Freahnesa.
One of our famous beauties has a peculiar
and successful system for keeping her
youthful freshness. Although she is in

sleeping iu the morning of this day of ret
till she wakes naturally. After a hot bath
and a light breakfast she goes back to bed.
and rests quietly in a darkened room until

dines in her room and sits about idly until
10 o'clock, when she goes to bed again,

Speech Ioes Mot Necessarily Gala la
Truth in Ratio to Its Lass in Policy.
There is a pernicious fallacy to the ef
fect that a rongh tongue is an honest one,
says Marion Harland, who comments in
Housekeeper's Weekly upon this fallacy as
There are quite as many unpleasant un
truths told as there are flattering false
hoods. Because a speech is kind it is not of
necessity a lie, nor does a
remark gain in
truth in direct ratio as it loses in polite
ness. Often the blunt criticism is the out'
come of a savage instinct on the part of
the perpetrator. In America men and
women do not carry poniards concealed in
their breasts or swords at their sides. In
lieu of these the tongue is used to revenge
Determine to train yourself strictly to
see the many excellent qualities possessed
by your associates and you will be sur
prised to find that before long the dis
agreeable traits will only appear as foils
for the good. Cultivate an eye for pleas
ant characteristics, and do not encourage
people who are prone to rough speech.
Frown down the blunt expression of opin
ion and it will cease to be considered
praiseworthy frankness. The woman of
whom the royal preacher speaks, "in whose
tongue was the law of kindness," prob
ably showed that kindness by being agree
able, or we may be sure no human being
of the masculine gender would have con
sidered her price far above rubies; nor add
with such sublime confidence, "her hus
band also, and he praises her."
One such woman uever forgot to thank
any one for the slightest favor, and I have
seen a burly and phlegmatically somber
policeman smile with unexpected pleasure
at receiving the sweet faced "Thank you"
with which she always acknowledged his
pilotage over a crowded street crossing.
It is time people realised that it is not
their duty to be disagreeably frank when
another's comfort is the price thereof. An
