Reagan, of Texas, and Its keynote is given In the following: "The facts of history vindicate us against the charge of being either rebels or traitors, and show that we were not the authors of 'a causeless war, brought about by ambitious leaders, but that our brave men fought and suffered and died, and our holy men of God prayed, and our noble women suffered patiently and patriotically all the privations and horrors of a great war, cruelly forced upon us, for the purpose of upholding the constitution of the United States, as preserving the rights of the several states to regulate their own domestic policies and of protecting the people against spoliation and robbery by a dominant majority."

When Beujanin Fruukliu went to Paris as the reprcsuitative cf the re volted American colonies, hs had to be presented to the kiug, and it was a mat ter of some solicitude with him how ho should array himself for that ceremony. He was anxious not to be considered lacking iu respect for the French court, wliero much formality regarding dress was observed, but ho kuew it would be an affectation for to simple- a repub lican as lie was to imitate tho court drees. He deckled, therefore, and wise ly, to appear iu a plain suit of Tjlack velvet, with white silk stockings and black shoes. Nevertheless, he deemed it best to mako cno concession to tho French fash ion of the time by wearing a wig something which lie had not been ao customcd to do. He ordered of a wig maker tho largest one the man had, and in season for tho 'presentation tho man himself brought the wig and set about trying it on. But do all bo could the man could not squeeze tho wig on the philoso pher's head. He tried and tried and al so essayed to convince Franklin against tho evidence of his senses that the wig was a fit. Finally Franklin said: "I tell you, man, your wig is not large enough." Upon this the Frenchman threw the wig down in a rage. ''2 'Monsieur," ho said, "that ia impos sible. It is not the wig which is top small. It is tho head which is too large Accepting tho rebuke as deserved Franklin weut to the presentation with out any wig and found there that the limplicity of his dress and the honesty and candor of his manners won him more esteem at the court than any con cession to fnshicn could possibly havo done. Youth's Companion. ' Spider 611k. Notwithstanding the failure coramoi. ly attending attempts hitherto mado to obtain from spiders, gathered collective ly for the purpose, an amount of silk sufficient for industrial uses, it is , now claimed by M. Cainbclle, a French nat- . uralist, that the Madagascar 6pecies of this insect is susceptible of management capable of some practical results in this line. He has found that the spider of that country is capable of producing at the beginning cf its work more than 1 100 yards of thread per hour, increas- ing in quantity until it actually pro duces more than 1 50 yards in that length of time. His experiments also show that this thread has about the consistency and strength of the thread yielded by the silkworm that is fed on mulberry leaves. A peculiar little ma chine winds the threads on bobbins as soon as it issnes from the spider. New York Sun.
