Staked His All and Won.
The coatless young man anil Ilia young woman companion meandered into one of the swell restaurants and sat down at a table. The young man had met the young woman when he had not expected to. That explaines the absence of his coat. The waiter took their orders. Then he went over to the proprietor. Then the waiter returned. “Sorry, sail, but we can’t serve shirt waist gen’lemen in the presence ob ladies, sah.” The young man favored him with an icy stare. So did the young woman. Then they started out, but the young man fcli behind the young woman long enough to press Hie fourth part of a dollar into the waiter's hand and whisper: '‘Your kindness and that of the pro prietor will never be forgotten. My lady friend insinuated so strongly that she was hungry that I was ac tually forced to ask her to dine. I have not got money enough to pay for the simplest kind of a lunch.

The effect upon wages of annex ing countries overrunning with the cheapest kind of labor is evident enough to anyone who will consider the question dispassionately, but per haps a brief account of what 1 have seen with my own eyes in Egypt may serve to illustrate it. We hear a great deal of the political benefits con ferred by the British government upon the Egyptians, but little or nothing is said of the industrial re sults of expansion, and yet those re sults are the most important. Some years ago while I was living ln Egypt I visited one of the cot ton mills at Mansourah, the commer cial center of the cotton region. 1 liese mills are owned by English, French and German capitalists and operated by native labor. In the main room of the factory the air was so thick with cotton-dust that I found it difficult to breathe. A row of Arab girls of 12 or 13 years of age were standing Ihere before a series of tubs manipulating the raw cotton. “What are the hours of labor of these girls?” I asked the foreman, who was acting as my guide. “From four o’clock in the morning to six o’clock at night, with an in termission for dinner,” he answered. “And what is the pay?” “Twelve and a half cents a day.” I could hardly believe that, and the next time I met the English manager of one of these mills I cross-ques tioned him on the subject. “Is it true.” I asked, “that you work your girls from four until six for 1214 cents a day?” “Yes,” he said, rather reluctantly. “I didn't quite like it when 1 first went to Mansourah,but the girls don't seem to mind it.” “Don’t mind 14 hours’ work a day?” I cried. “Oh, that is not all,” he replied. “When we are busy they stav over “THERE ARE NO TRUSTS.” Mark Hanna. time from six till ten o’clock in the evening and we pay them an extra piastre (2 y 2 or five cents), and some times young motners come with the babes at the breast and put them down on the floor in the corner and go to work with the rest.” And all this, inind you, in an at mosphere which you can almost cut with a knife, so thick is it with cot ton. One thing has saved Egypt, and that is the absence of coal. It costs too much to bring it there for it to pay to introduce factories on a large scale. But there is plenty of coal in the Philippines. Coal can be had at the entrance of the mines in Japan for 13 cents a ton, I am informed, and it will be as cheap in the Philippines. With coal at this price, with girls and boys ready to work for 12y 3 cents a day, what is to prevent the immediate flow of our capital to these islands and the inauguration of a competi tion such as we have never known before? Either wages will fall here to the ISVo-cent level or our factories will be moved bodily lo our new posses sions and our working men left to starve. Bishop Potter, of New Y’ork, has just been in the Philippines, and he tells us that the Filipino takes kindly to our factory system. Poor Filipinos! So do mice take kindly to cheese in a trap. The system will prove a curse to them as it has already proved to the girls of Mansourah and at the same time that it will impoverish our American wage-earners at home. It may be said that the natives are not forced to work. But this is not true. When their cupidity is not sufficient to make them toil, means are found to compel them. This lias already been done in the mines of South Af rica. and the British government im poses taxes upon the natives there with the avowed object of forcing them to seek employment in the mines for the purpose of raising money to pay the tax, that being the only way open for them to earn money. The same plan will doubtless be adopted by our capitalists in the Philippines if it turns cut that Bishop Potter is mistaken and that the Filipinos do not take kindly to factory work. We are told that we ougiit to es tablish a stable government in the Philippines. That is precisely what we ought not to do. It is the lack of stable government which prevents capital from going to countries where people are willing to work for starv ation wages. It is an automatic ar rangement of nature that in unciv ilized or partly civilized countries franchises and monopolies are not well enough protected for capital to risk itself. If this were not so, all manufacturing industries would seek at once the country of cheapest wages, other things being equal, and the starvation of the home population would follow. It is best for the world that the government of such countries should not be too stable, and by in sisting upon a stable government in the Philippines we are ioing our best to throttle our own interests. It is clearly the interest of all wage earners to oppose imperialism root and branch, and if they have any doubt on the subject, let them con sider the cotton operatives of Egypt. —Ernest 11. Crosby, in the American Federationist. TEST FAVORS DEMOCRACY. Voluntary Vote in Chicago Give* Bryan a Plurality of 74,000 Ballots. Bryan will carry the city of Chicago. His plurality is likely to be more than 74,<XX> votes, or one-fourth greater than McKinley’s in 1596. The Chicago American has made a great poll of the voters. The returns leave no doubt that the democratic presidential ticket will sweep the city. A revolution of opinion has followed the McKinley ad ministration. The facts are at hand. The figures, it is believed, are sound. The vote was taken upon a greater scale, with greater care and with the observance of better and more intelli gent methods than ever before em ployed in a simitar work. Fifty can vassers, carefully chosen and sworn as to the accuracy of their figures, reached more than 60.000 voters with this inquiry: “For whom will you vote for presi dent ?” This is the result: For Bryan, 30,- 660; for McKinley. 20,436. Total, 51,- 096. Bryan over McKinley, 10,224. The estimate of Bryan’s majority is made by comparison of this vote with the vote of Bryan and McKinley in this city in 1596 and the estimated vote for the coming election. The presi dential vote of Chicago in 1896 was di vided between these candidates as fol. lows: McKinley. 201.074; Bryan, 144,- 770. Total. 345,844. McKinley over Bryan, 56.304. A comparison of the American’s bal lot with the vote of Bryan and McKin ley in Chicago in 1896 would indicate a majority for Bryan over McKinley of 74,720. The total vote of 19C0 in Chicago for all presidential candidate# is estimated at 374,000. By compari son with this estimate Bryan’s majori ly over McKinley would run consider ably over 74,000. Indeed, that prophecy is upon a conservative basis. The American’s ballot is of value in connection with the New York Jour nal's recent poll of New York. The Journal’s poll, taken from week to week for two months, indicates that McKinley’s plurality of 24,000 in that city in 1896 will he exchanged to a great plurality of nearly 70,000 votes for Bryan. Unless all signs fail, the great centers of population in this country will roll up a tremendous tidal wave of votes for Bryan on election day. OPINIONS AND POINTERS. seems to be to work hard-luck stories on the protected interests and make them come up with the cash for cam paign purposes. The republican chairman is probably genuinely frightened at the outlook for demo cratic success. —Savannah news. ley' Commercial club in Chicago Mr. Hanna said there are no trusts. What will the poor fellows do who have been accusing the democrats of being members of trusts? Will they admit they r lied, or will they charge Hanna with having lied?—Dubuque Herald. ——McKinley, Roosevelt and Hanna all poohpooli the idea of there being trusts. Perhaps they will do Vie same as to such protests as are now being made against the coal trust in Penn sylvania. They may prove like the fellow who belittled the deluge when it set in and said it was merely a shower. —Louisville Courier-Journal. There is no argument that the imperialists of the Hanna-McKinley party can bring forward in justifica tion of their course toward the Fili pinos, except the one that has been used by despots from time imme morial in support of their right to rule subject people by the strong arm and to crush their libert es by the tyrant agency of military power.— Kansas City Times. Mark Hanna's afterthoughts are poor specimens. He stated at Cleve land that when he said in Chicago “there are no trusts” he added, or meant to add. “injurious to the peo ple.” This is too late and too thin. He is an inexperienced “spellbinder," and perhaps thinks it sufficient for him to explain in Cleveland what he said in Chicago. Belated and false ex planations do not explain.—Chicago Chronicle. Are there no trusts? Ask the men who used to work in the rolling mills. Are there no trusts? Ask the men who used to work in the bicycle factories. Are there no trusts? Ask the independent manufacturers or the small merchants, or anybody, in fact, except M. A. Hanna. No trusts, in deed! The woods are full of trusts, and every one is a menace to labor. But there’s away to get rid of 'em, and that way isn't by voting the re publican ticket, either.—Toledo Bee, LATE DRESS NOTES. Fresh Fancies In Feminine Finery for Fall Gowns and Cos tumes. An ideal gown for a garden party is of white Japanese silk, trimmed with a deep incrustation of cream lace over a brown silk ground A wide corselet of palest pink silk drapes the figure closely beneath a box plaited bolero. A fichu of lace is caught across the shoul ders and fastened at each side of the plaited chiffon vest by a silver buckle. The lower part of the sleeve is an in crustation of the Point de \ enise over brown, like the skirt decoration. The hat is of tucked white mousseline in shepherdess shape, with delicate pink ribbons and roses, says the New York Tribune. An exquisite empire tea gown lately seen in Newport was as novel as it was beautiful in design. There was a short cuirass arrangement of black mail sequins, from which the open fronts of black crape eolienne fell straight over a perfectly fitting under dress veiled in white kilted d’esprit net that seemed to be a continuation of a small graceful fichu draping the shoulders inside the round decolletage. Elbow sleeves of the cotte de maille jet finished with ruffles of the kilted net —ruffles shaped almost to nothing oa the inside of the arm. Some of the newest scarf and tie clasps are in gun metal, French gray silver and gilt, and are hollow spheres, with three openings through which the ends of the tie are drawn. They are invariably dull in finish and frequently are perfectly plain, but for those who prefer the more ornate real and imita tion gems are sunk in the surface. Veiling pins are shown in the form of flies and various beetles, the wings of which bend with a spring to catch the veil. It is whispered that old fashions ix\ bracelets are to be revived, especially that showing a medallion or cameo set in a wide gold band. For fall wear black velvet waistcoats will be popular. They are cut low, and fastened with large rhinestone or en ameled buttons, and are immensely ef fective under the bolero of a white pique suit. It is predicted that the painted fab ric of last year will be more in.evidence than ever the coming season. Whole panels of painted velvet gowns of painted chiffon and every painted or namentation will be seen. Velvet is to be the material de rigeuer for winter. Velvet for street gowns, reception gowns, dinner gowns, and as trimming will characterize every modish wardrobe. It is ex pensive, but, oh, so becoming! Ev ery woman will want a velvet gown, but, alas, for every woman it is not to be advised, as a cheap velvet is abso lutely devoid of beautj*. THE MINISTER’S WIFE. Her Home I.ife Without Privacy— Denietl the Right to Choose Her Friends. The average parish feels a sense oi ownership in its minister's wife, her children and her home, and because this interest often uses the eyes of as section, she tries to blind herself tc the fact that she has no privacy, no lib erty to choose her own friends, no leis ure for her own refreshing, writes “A Minister’s Wife” in Ladies’ Home Jour nal. The lack of privacj', and the sac rifice of dignity that must accompany it, are as nothing, however, to the dep rivation that most of us feel when wc are denied the right to choose our own friends. It is only common sense tc suppose that some people in the par ish are going to be more congenial com panions than others for the minister’s wife, who was probably a very human girl once. A minister’s wife rarely dares to make close friends among her husband’s people, because those whom she has not chosen become offended and critical. She usually succeeds in living on terms of colorless friendliness with all, and perhaps has a somewhat lonely life in consequence. There are inti macies which she does not care for, be cause she is a woman of sense; there are others which she may not have, because she is a woman of discretion; her friendships are not to be achieved; they are to be thrust upon her, or de nied. Greater than any difficulty ot this sort is a more practical one regard ing hospitality. When a visiting cler gyman comes to the church, when mis sionaries, and secretaries, and evan gelists, and lecturers appear, the parish is usually willing to have the minister’s wife reap all the blessing from the en tertainment of “angels, unawares.” Ripe Cucumber Catsup. Choose large, nearly ripe cucum bers, pare, reject seeds, chop very fine and measure. Allow one tea spoonful of salt for every pint of pulp, sprinkle with same and drain through a colander for six hours. For every quart of cucumber allow two cups of cider vinegar, four tablespoon fuls of grated horse-radish, one table spoonful each of white mustard seed and minced red pepper (seeds reject ed); bring vinegar and flavoring slow ly to a boil, skim thoroughly and set aside until perfectly cold. Then add the pulp to the vinegar, stir well, put into pint-size glars fruit jars, lay a nasturtium or horse-radish leaf over the top and seal. Keep in a dark, cool place.—Good Housekeeping. Thick Filling for Chocolate Cake. Scald one pint of milk in a double boiler; mix together one cupful of sugar, one-third of a cupful of flour and a pinch of salt, add to it two well-beaten eggs, and. when well mixed, the scalded milk; return to the double-boiler and s.ir until the mixture thickens smoothly, then cover and cook fer 12 minutes, stir ring occasionally; scrape two squares of unsweetened chocolate, melt over hot water and add to the cooled mix ture; cook for three minutes longer, take from the fire add one teaspoon ful of vanilla and spread between the layers of cake.—Good Literature.

Pinkham’s Vegetable Com pound is Especially Successful in Curing this Fatal Woman’s Disease. Os all the diseases known with which the female organism is afflicted, kidney disease is the most fatal. In fact, unless early and correct treatment is ap plied, the weary patient seldom survives. Being fully aware of this, Mrs. Pinkham, early in her career, gave ex haustive study to the subject, and in producing her great remedy for woman’s ills Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound was careful to see that it contained the correct combination of herbs which was sure to control that fatal disease, woman’s kidney troubles. The Vegetable Compound acts in har mony with the laws that govern the entire female system, and while there are many so called remedies for kidney troubles, Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vege table Compound is the only one especially prepared for women. The following letters will show how marvellously successful it is : Aug. 6, 1899. leucorrhoea, falling of the womb, and “ Dear Mrs. Pinkham : lam fail- kidney trouble.
