were born in July. June, July and

After the Battle-
As the smoke of battle clears away
the more evident is the complete
rout of lhe democrats. The bad im
pression created by the first dis~
patch from New York has been cons
firmed by the later reports.
Hill (for governor) ran far ahead
of the ticket and polled more than
the democratic strength, leaving the
impression that some kind of com.
bination was made whereby the re~
publicans traded 03' support to Hill
for votes for Harrison. This was
partly expected. seeing that the op
portunities were exceptional]; good
in this campaign for that ind of
thing. The city of New York. like
all the other large cities. gave Uleve‘
land a large majority, but it was

cities and t 0 country. N o wonder

doubt. What has brought about the
change is not very clear to an out
sider at this writing, though it was
most likely general dissatisfaction
with the administration. The fact
that some of the largest mannfw
tar-ing centers suppoer Cleveland
does not indicate that his trade
policy is wholly responsible. It was
said to be a “campaign of intellect,”
but the great majority no doubt
voted against the President because
he was a democrat just like they
used to. Besides this, it is well to
remember that the republicans had
by far the most money. the best or
ganization and probably the moat
brains. Theae were at least united,
which is the st sign of intelligence.

The System Held in High Esteem as
Ancient Athens—Mind and flutter.
Xenon-lieu and Hysteria—.l Hopeful
ShakeSpeare, the Universal, seems to
have formulated the theory of the new
school of healing when he makes Hamlet
my that “there is nolhing ei'hcr good 0!
had but thinking makes it so." Perhaps
we should not speak of that system as
“new" that would appear to havoheen
in high esteem at ancient Athens, and that
had an extraordinary vogue in the east at
the beginning of our era. At first thought
the present interest and excitement in the
subject seem unreal and anachronistic.
But, after all, is it not natural and fitting
that the mind should be most easily and
absorbingly occupied by matters pertain
ing to the mind itself!
To accept the doctrine of the mind cure,
as we understand it, is to believe that
health, sanity and virtue are the normal
attributes, the birthright possession, of
man. Disease, dementia, sin, are negative
conditions which it is weak, dishonorable
and sinful to harbor. “Refuse to believe
In illness, deny pain, resist weakness,"
say the apostles of this optimistic creed,
"and illneu, pain and weakness vanish,
because they exist only in your thought
of them. Suffering is simply that stats 0!
mind that makes you imagine that you
suffer. You have only to get above suf.
The influence of mind over matter
hardly needs assertion. The old illustra
tions of the moral philosophies alone are
proof enough. The miner dying of (right
on finding his sustaining rope too short,
in the pitch dark mine, with his feet in
reality six inches from the ground; the
blindfolded man fainting in the belief
that he was bleeding to death, when only
warm water was trickling down his arm;
the workman undergoing the horrible
manifestations of cholera because he was
told falsely that a cholera victim had just
died in the same bed—show the effect of
belief. The madness of the insane, which
in bath perverted and exaggerated will
power, gives them the strength of a dozen
sane men. And quite lately the shock oi
the earthquake in the Riviera roused a
bedridden woman to rush down fotu
flights of stairs to the safety of the street.
wusr nu: LANCE? sass.
Even The London Lancet, which is
nothing if not conservative, asserts that
in some cases mind has such an effect
upon an organic disease as to cause new
and healthy formations. This, it will be
seen, goes far beyond the old admission
that “nervousness" and “hysteria” were
subject to mental influences. There is no
doubt that the tendency of the medical
profession has been decidedly material
istic, and that any leaning toward spirit
ual methods, as shown in “magnetism,"
"hypnotism," “clairvoyance” and their
like. has been made at once disreputable,
so that any germ of truth they may have
possessed was smothered out of sight.
Yet the little we know of the potency of
the mind over the body shows us that
there must be an inimitable field for its
action, if we could but find out how to set
it at work. And it would seem that our
help must come chiefly from within, not
from without. “ ’Tis in ourselves that
we are thus or thus." ‘
It appears to us a hopeful sign of a
more wholesome life that large classes oi
women take time and spend money to
hear this theory of the reality or spiritual
existence “Pollnded. After the poet,
they are discovering that “soul is form,
and doth the body make." They are
semi invalids. They have entered. They

Construction of Tornado Caves.
In some localities tornado caves are be

wary equipment of every dwelling

There were 12! competitors and the award

A Life Saving Invention.
Robert F. Fenney, employed at Win
chester’s, who recently invented the idea
of having dangerous shafting inclosed in
a tin jacket, which would not revolve
with the shaft in case of an otherwise
dangerous contact, has now shown ton
number of mechanics who approve of it
his latest life saving discovery. Instead
of. a pulley on an ordinary hanger he pro
poses to have a weight attached at the
back of all belting running through the
floors of a factory. This would be at
tached to the binder pulley, which press
ing against the belt tightens it by chains.
Two long spiral springs are fixed in front of
the binder pulley, to give it- a quick mo
tion when released, as here described.
The weight, hanging by tongs such as ice
men hnve, would be fastened to a life line
running the whole length 0! the shop—say
200 feet. in case of a man getting caught,
anybody, without running the whole
length of the room, by pulling a line
hanging from the life line opens the jaws
of the tongs, when the weight drops. and
aided by the spring; the binder pulley i>
in n. moment thrown out from its beating
on the belt, thus stopping the machinery.
The bell pulls are at intervals, within
reach of the workmen or WOTkWOlllt'il.
The same device can be used as in the or
dinary tight and loose pulley system, ila
weight being so attached as to hold tla
binder pulley while the shutting is in mo
tion—New llaven Register.

he would vent his rage on poorJosephiuc,

Josephine that she was speechless with
