An Appointee Sbould be Acceptable to Patrons. New York Post. The principle that no man shall be named for postmaster who is objec tionable to the patrons 01 the office ought to be the fundamental one in the consideration of the applicants for th& position. It makes no differ ence whether the objection to an aspirant is based on his color or his race, his extreme youth or his great age, his reputation or his temper; the fact that he is disliked by most ot the people who must have relations with the postmaster, should dispose of bis ease. It is the most astonish ing feature of the craze for office that a man sbould be so anxious for a place that he will take it when he knows that the people whom he must serve hate him. The rule wnicn ought to govern in this matter of borne postomces is the same which governs as to places in tbe foreign service that the appointee shall always be persona grata to the peo ple to whom he is accredited. The Mi'Kinlpy administration has just had a consul to Cologne, Germany, turned back upon it because the ap pointee was offensive to the German government. Every postmaster who is offensive to the community which he must serve ought also to be turned back upon it or, better still. nobody should be appointed, either abroad or at home, who Is not wanted in the place for which he is named.

Philadelphia Record. Knife plaiting has pushed the erst while ubiquitous accordion plaiting quite to the wall and will be ex clusively used this season for frill ings. The feminine mind is pretty well assured by this time as to what shall be the smartest fashions in crowns. coats and hats this winter, and the modish girl has resolved to have her gown much trimmod, her hat much bfeathered and her jacket a fly front or a Russian blouse. Tusked yokes and fronts are much used for waists, applique figures cut out of ecru lace and put on either colored or black silk are very effec tive for these styles. Three waists made for one of our leading society belles were cut square neck and front and filled with plaited chiffon, fancy velvet and guipure lace. Women with flat figures will find the little knife-plaited or gathered frills used so much nowadays, more becoming if put on crosswise, while the short-waisted, stout one will do well to have band trimmings put on lengthwise. The slender woman may wear a soft, crumpled girdle, while the stout one must have hers pointed in front, boned and fitted. The garnitures for dresses are shown in any number of styles and designs. Whole fronts for waists of braid applique, mostly with a little quare or V at the nee; yokes of 8ilK cord or spangle embroidery on mousseline; colored and jet gimps; bands of the dress material; black and colored velvet: black and white satin velvet ribbon; rows of design braid; tiny frills of knife piaiting all thes are popular and will be much used.

List year when the air was full o promises of reform by the gang tha is now mismanaging the State, thi paper warned the people that th very evils that have come upon them would necessarily follow the return of the Republican party to power. The scandal and public disgrace have come out sooner than we expected. Now that the Populists see the re sult of their co-operation, thoe who are not Republicans at heart will come out irom among the Fusionists, join their old neighbors in making a manly, determined and straight from -the shoulder fight to redeem the State from the disgraceful rule that now makes every honest citizen hang his head in shame. Those who expected clean government from Re publicans and men who allied th m selves with them now see that "yon cannot gather figs from thistles." The duty of honest men who have been deceived is plain. They must return to the old home, put on the old armor which many of them wore when tbe State was redeemed in 1876, and fight once again to restore white supremacy. nrr 1 u uv In all the world there Is no other treatment ao pore, so sweet, so safe, so speedy, for pre serving, purifying, and beautifying the skin, calp, and hair, and eradicating every hu snor, as warm baths with Ctrrioo&A Soap, - and gentle anointings with CtmcoBA (oint ment), the great skin core. .
