dially endorsed. Senator Pettigrew is
IQ full accord with the soundest senti
ment of the state on national questions
—he does not radically differ from the
republican position on any question, and
where an apparent difference is alleged
it wil be found upon investigation that
the difference is about the same aa a
question of residence between a pioneer
and a later comer. As the State Journal
wisely and tersely says, referring to the
financial question: "The fact of the
matter really is, that the bi metallic
plank of recent republican platforms is
construed in itB broadest and most liber
al sense by Mr. Pettigrew, and in a nar
rower and more conservative sense by
other republicans This IB a fact. The
republican party is in favor of the
double standard—with an international
agreement if possible—but a double
etiodard any way.
Sioux City Tribune, 9: Under the
the present tariff law raw sugar comes
in free of duty and cent per pound is
levied on refined sugar. Under the Wil
son bill, as it passed the house, all sugar,
both raw and refined, was to come in
free of duty. Under the Seuate bill, as
it wa3 reported to the senate by the
finance committee, raw sugar was to pay
a duty of 1 cent, per pound and refined
sugar was to pav more according to the
degree of its refinement.. Under the re:
vised senate bii), us amended Monday,
raw.^ugar is to pay 40 per cent, ad val
orem and refined sugar cent per
pound in addition. The difference in
these propositionp, so far as the payment
of taxes it concerned, is shown by th«*
amount of revenue, actual and estimated,
under each. Under the pr-sent tariff
the revenue cailected at the custom
bouse f^om sugar imports was $193,000.
Under the original Wilson bill the esti
mated sugar revenue was $16,000,000.
Under original senate bill the estimated
sugar revenue was $42,000,000. Under
the senatebill as amended the estimated
sugar revenue is $50,000,000. The mere
statement of these figures is their suffi
cient elucidation. The democratic par
ty weat into power claiming that they
would legislate in favor of the poor man

to do is to tax the breakfast table which
the republican party freed.
lurupc'i Suffering PdMfc
The suffering among the Lftnfton poor
this winter is not so great as was ex
pected, says a correspondent. It has
been about an average winter for the
unemployed. There has been only about
a week of severe weather, which fact
has greatly mitigated suffering. London
is now rejoicing in pleasant skies and
springlike air, influences under which
the grass has been always green, and
shrubs are now putting out their leave**,
apd tiees are beginning to bud.
A very different story comes from
eastern Europe. In districts in Russia
the winter is.so severe that wolves r.re
unusually fierce. The other day at
Sara toff a peasant woman walking nem
the village was surrounded and dr
voured by a pack of nine wolves. An
other peasant going to market was set
upon by a pack of wolves and torn to
shreds. Nothing was left of man and

Camels are not like horses. If a horse
docs not want to do anything, we make
him. If a camel does not want to do
anything, he leaves it undone. No
amount of coaxing, no uinountof cruel
ty, will niako him b»l,"\ He has the
determination of a inu^o combined with
the strength of an elephant. A camel

Will drive a l» tempered man to distrac
tion. Nothing will persnade him to lis

with a passive resistance that Is abso
lutely unconquerable.'
The .only way to treat a camel is to
humor if you cannot humbug him.
They will often lie down if you load
them with the proverbial last straw,
and you might beat them to death or
offer up all the pleasures of paradise be
fore they would get up. They are pig
headed beasts. Sometimes when they
have quite a light load they torn nasty
and throw themselves to the ground,
But although they are obstinate they
ate not cute, and an Arab, by pretend
ing to submit, can generally get the
better of the 8tubtorn beasts. Thedriv-!
«rs will ostentatiously remove three or
four packages from the load, and the
animal, with an inward chuckle of!
satisfaction, rises at once without per
ceiving that the parcels have meanwhile
been returned to their former place. As
he flatters Himself be has shirked some
of his duty he swings away with a light
heart, gratified beyond measure, like a
spoiled child, at paving his own way.
The camel is an unsociable beast. He
is also habitually dull, except when he is
sniffing the salt air of the desert. When
he is treading the sands, with the burn
ing sun on his back and the boundless
waste before him, he feels himself at
home. The immense beat makes him
bubble over with pleasure and fills his
fiame with a 6ubliine intoxication. It
has been stated on the best authority
that be can go nine days without wa
ter. And if you had ever seen a camel
drink when he does get a chance of
quenching his thirst you would not be
surprised at this. They have been
known to pat away 1% gallons at a
time.—Ashton Reporter.
A Cbineae Lottery Pen.
Entering a Chinese lottery den, one
sees on the walls a large representation
of a lottery ticket beautifully engrossed,
and also large slips of paper, each slip
containing one of the 80 lottery charac
ters. When the drawing is to take
place, these slips are taken down, rolled
into pellets so as to conceal the writing from the United States,
and then thrown into a pan. They are
there well mixed up and again taken
out and placed in four woodeu bowls
marked 1, 2, 8, 4, 20 of these charac
ters being distributed equally among
the four bowls.
One of these four bowls contains the
winning characters of the drawing.
Which is it to be? Again four pieces
of paper, each printed with a number,
1, 2, 8 or 4, corresponding with the
numbers marked on the bowl, are rolled
up, thrown into a box and shaken. A
disinterested person, sometimes a little
child, is called in to draw out one of
these numbers. For this service be re
ceives 5 cents for good luck. The paper
bearing the given number is straight
ened out, the number lead and the
bowl selected .which corresponds with
the number. This, of course, contains
the winning 20 characters, and all the
other 60 characters in the three other
bowls are destroyed. The bowl chosen
is taken up, aud one by one the charac
ters are unfolded. An assistant is sta
tioned near the large lottery ticket hang
ing up, and as each character in the
bowl is read off the corresponding char
acter on the wall is marked. As soon
as the 20 lucky characters are called
out they are pasted on a piece of paper
and hung up where eveiy one can see
the drawing for that day.—San Fran
cisco Chronicle.
Hit Goldca Kal« la Ilia Boxttoff
The high moral value of boxing St!
exercise and of the boxing code to which
every boxer must submit is due to the
fact that they compel men to be just, to
accept equality, to respect the rights of
others, to be fair to their opponents on
their feet and magnanimous to them
when they are down.
They take the golden rule down into
the gymnasiums of every first class col
lege and school and say to the youth of
today, who is to be the citizen of to
morrow, "Put on the gloves, young
man, and learn that you positively shall
not, in the boxing ring at least, do any
thing unto others which they shall not
do unto you."
Quite apart, therefore, from its phys
ical benefits, which are greater than
those of any other form of athletics,
quite apart, too, from its utility in mo
ments of personal peril, which is too
obvious to need pointing out, I rejoice
at the undoubted growth of boxing in
the general favor as a distinct and val
uable moral advance. It is already
taught in nearly all our leading college*
and private schools. I hope to live to
see it taught in all our public high
schools, and this more as a means of
moral discipline than of physical im
provement.—Donaboa's Magazinft.

There is probably no city or town in
Wisconsin where so many marriages
take place as at Kenosha. It is the
Gretna Green for Illinois and also
many towns in Michigan. Hudson Is
also noted as a center for matrimonial
ly inclined couples from Minnesota, and
Hazel Green has a like reputation for
Iowa and northwestern Illinois young
people who do not wish to be put to the
trouble or publicity of taking out a
marriage license. Kenosha, however, is
far ahead of its rivals in that respect.
The town is about midway between
Milwaukee and Chicago and cons#'
quently has the World's fair city to
draw from for the greater proportion of
the business in the matrimonial

Inducements Being Off red by Europe
to Keep Labor at Home Mnst
Have an Effect.
WASHINGTON, May 10.—Representa
tive Mc-Gann, chairman of the labor
committee, predicts that a turn in the
tide of immigration is not far off, and
that when it comes it will offer the so
lution to the depressed condition of
American labor now existing.
'The tide of immigration has been
steadily toward the United States for
years," said Mr. McGann, "until the
labor market of Europe is being so
drained that the commercial classes are
awake to the necessity of
Keeping Thtlr Labor at Home*
"Furthermore, the leading men of
Oertnany, France and Great Britain
place the labor question foremost among
the great national questions, while
in this country, the public
man who seeks to advance the
cause of labor is set down as a dema
gogue. Bismarck and King William
are urging reforms to ameliorate the
condition of labor. In France labor is
recognized by the government to tue
extent of establishing public bureaus of
labor, similar to our intelligence offices,
where employers can secure men, and
men can secure work.
8*ya England Is AkaMI «f Hi*
In England they are 25 years ahead of
us in lending government assistance to
labor. There are two haif holidays each
week, Wednesday and Saturday after
noons, during which it is illegal to keep
men at work. Public halls are pro
vided for the meetings of workingmen.
Public parks are designated where they
may spend their half holidays. Premier
Roseierry is following Gladstone in
aiding toward the etter condition of
labor. And while European countries
are thus bending every energy toward
helping labor, the United States is
standing still. We are already far be
nind our foreign neighbors and they are
going ahead, we are going backward.
This cannot but be recognized by lalor
before long, and it will surely result in
turning the tide of immigration away

there will be a tie-up compared with
which the last one waa a mere bagatella.

The Gazette announces that the queen
has conferred the Victoria cross upon
Surgeon Major Lloyd of the army med«
ical staff for his gallantry during th»
operations against the Kachf ns last year.
During the attack on the Sima lorf
by the Kachins on Jan. 6, 1893, th§
commanding officer, Captain Morton,
While visiting a picket about 80 yards
distant, was wounded. Surgeon Major
Lloyd, accompanied by a native officer,
at once ran out to help him, under a
heavy fire. When, however, the wound
ed man was reached, it was found nec
essary to send back for more help, an«|
Surgeon Major Lloyd had thus to re
main with Captain Morton for soui#
minutes. The enemy, who were withijl
10 or 15 paces, were all the time keep»

one of them being a bugler who was
helping to carry Captain Morton. Tba
Victoria cross was probably nevefr
earned more gallantly.
Surgeon Major Lloyd would havede*
lighted Frederick the Great as one of
the men who show no violent wish to
"live forever." His example is also use*
ful to the soldier in showing that therf
are practically no war risks through
which it is impossible to come out with
safety. This is a very important lessom

Mr. Davies of Wood Green has emu
barked on a scheme which promises co
lossal returns. He intends utilizing
tidal energy for electric lighting, tram*
ways and railways. The notion is nol
entirely new. In 1881 Professor Thornp»
son pointed out that no fewer than 20,
000,000,000 foot pounds of energy wert'
wasted each year at Bristol alone. One*
tenth part of this energy would, it $•
stated, light the city with electricity,
while one-tenth part of the tidal force
of the Severn would be sufficient to il
luminate every city in the empire. Sci
entific men have all agreed that the only
possible mode is to have immense reser
voirs, which would fill at high tide and
run out on the ebb into the tidal way
through turbines. To this there has al
ways been one disadvantage—no invent
or conld show a greater length of effi
cient working power than six hours
Mr. Davies claims, after an immense
amount of thought, a deal of experi
ment and considerable outlay, to have
invented apparatus .by which he can
work turbines from the rise and fall of
the tides every minnte during the 24
hours at a saving of 400 per cent over
steam engines of similar power. His
experiments on a small scale off the
Cheshire coast incline him to believe
that it will speedily become an immense
commercial success and an affair of na
tional importance.—London ifigato.
The Baton Rescued the Prtncoss From Het
Prison, and Now They Are Wed.
The love story of the Princess Eliza
beth of Bavaria turns out to be even
more romantic, according to its latest
version, than at first reported. The first
account declared that the princess, hav
ing known Baron von Seifried for many
years, married him with the reluctantly
granted consent of her parents and of her
uncle^ Emperor Francis Joseph of Aus
tria. The ceremony was sa$d to have
taken place at Genoa.
It now appears that the royal parents
of the princess opposed with right royal
sternness the mismarriage of their
daughter. She was borne away, like
some lovelorn damsel of old, to a se
questered castle in the Tyrol. Here she
was left to repent and reflect upon the
folly of misplaced affection. Baron von
Sei fried was meanwhile garrisoned at
Metz, in Lorraine.
But the fair prisoner found means to
inform her trusty knight and true of
her whereabouts, and he hastened to her
relief by the first railway train. They
met at Bautzen, where all trace of them
was lost. But President von Crailsheim
of the Bavarian ministerial council has
just received word that the couple were
married in a little parish cbuch near
Geneva, in Switzerland.—H«fr ¥®rir

for the happy condition. J, L. Stearns,

$50,000 with the Washington officials
and begun logging on the reserve, giv
