IT Is now explained that It was Me- Kloley protection that was denounced as ft crime in the Chicago platform. Any other protection tbut will satiety >ho south, please the trusia and buy votes to pass sorr.0 kind i;f 11 bill labeled "tariff reform" will bo ac- pled by sbam refoinnors, from Dan Voorbeoa down to the Podunk War Cry. _^ . TIIK members of tho new gas company, including: evory Stock subscriber, who hav-o labored ao lorg and waited so patiently will not now relax their efforts when their reward of cheap gas find plenty of it Is plainly in sight. On tho contrary subscriptions will bo promptly paid, and(j now subscribers urpod to "get In on the ground floor." TnK commonwealora, representing tho fiat money idea sugared over with a promise of good roads, are not making ranch political capital for the Populist schemers who inspired and support tho "petition In boots." Hard headed American common sense may pity the delusions of the wealera, but will be more than ever set against the deceptions of fiallam, SENATOK MILLS, of Texas, frankly acknowledges that he has been hemmed la lor some time between •the devil and the deep uea," with the necessity of making: a choice pressing nearer every day, but true to his wrong convictions, declared his purpose to sacrifice himself In the deep sea ol political destruction rath, er than stultify and perjure himself by accepting cowardly, truckling and trading compromises. GEORGE M. PULLMAN, of the Pullman car company, at Pullman, 111.. declares that his company Is running Its plant at a loss, even after eliminating from Its animate the use of cap. Ital and machinery, so that his era. ployos might have work. The statement was made in explanation of a cut In wages with which the employes were dissatUfled, and will be investigated, with ths full consent of the company by the said employe!. THE kind of women scored so mercilessly by "Bab" In her lively, and generally sensible, newspaper correspondence, are making the greatest effort of their cause to secure suffrage from the New Tork constitutional convention no win session at Albany. The women ol the "Bab" persuasion are up in opposition, and so a battle in skirts rages. Indiana must have a new constitution before many yeara have passed and some persons shudder as they think ol Helen Gouger in tho Iront of a suffrage fight TOE tariff tinkers vociferate that •any part of a loaf of reform is better than tho McKlnley law." ignoring the glaring fact that their "part of tho loaf" is measly with sectionalism, mouldy with trading compromises to buy votea for the bill and rotten and poisonous with favors to oppressive trusts and monopolies. This "part of a loaf" excuse is the poorest partisan plase thai was ever offered for^polltl- oal degradation, and becomes gigantically contemptible, when contrasted with the professions and political principles it repudiates. WITH a sound Republican basis established firmly, and the Republican party in full control of the executive and legislative departments of the government, this country would enter upon a career ol material prosperity and civic reform that would bo almost millennial in its scope and achieve, ments. Many public questions of the greatest moment have been crowded out of consideration for years past by the persistent obstructionist policy of the opsosltion to the Republican party. The assaults of unsound financial theories and vagaries, and free trade fallacies, have kept the party on the defense of its principle) on these vital questions. When the opposition is compelled to admit a final settlement ol these questions on a Republican basla. tken that great party of progress will be free to take up the vast work at grand statesmanship that liei before It. A WORD ; OF AfPROYAL. Many Faithful Employes Are Hungering for It in Vain. reciation Expresm'cl In SImplfl I/nD- ufjo In Qnltn o» Frni-lons n» »ii In- croiMO In Salury—Sentiment In I!u»lnoa». While I a>ra ready to concede that the average modern employer is just, or means to bo, 1 am equally ready to acknowledge, writes Kdward W. Bok in the Cosmopolitan Mnjj.'i/ino, 'that, m a number of cases, lie is woefully shortsighted so i'ar as the interests of his employes arc concerned. There is an impression in the minds of a large number of employers that a word of praise or approval goes for very little in a business. So:no po so far as to believe that it holds absolutely no place in the commercial world. An "increase in salary" is what men want, these employers say. Now, I boy to (infer with those gentlemen. For many years I w:ts :m employe, ffo- iutf the raiure of ollicv boy, copyist, bookkeeper, eli-rk, stcnos'i-aplicr i.nd department maiiiigvv. Latterly it ;ms been given nie to employ people-. I think, therefore, that, f can fairly jud-fo this question from both sides. To the heart of the uvuraffi: employe his salary is r.aturaily very near. That is what ho is in business for; to make money just as his employer is, But there lire men and men. To some men. the question o[ how much money they earn is not ovi-r.ything 1 , even though necessarily it forms a large part. Take a young man assuming- a new position in a house, lie enters on a small salary. He proves himself capable, and his salary receives an increase, either by solicitation or voluntary—mostly by the former method. His salary keeps pace with his growth. But he finds that the second increase of salary has not one-half, no, not even one-fifth tho clement of delight in it to him as did the first "raise," The third has even less, although it is, ol course, acceptable. After he has received four or five additions to his itipend he is apt to feel that, after all, money is ft very cold and hard return EirWABD W. HOK. lor what he docs, llis nature longs for something, exactly what he does not perhaps know until one day some friend tells him of a certain nice compliment paid to his work by his employer. Thou it occurs to the young man that his employer has never said an appreciative word to him. Now, what that young 1 man is really hungering' lor is not another increase of salary so much as it is to have his employer acknowledge that this was particularly well done, or that piece ol work was cleverly conceived and even better carried out. A word of praise is a tremendous stimulant to tho right young 1 fellow in business, plodding hard each day for his employer's interests. And employers are far too chary of praise. The general claim Is that they cannot afford to praise "for policy's sake." In some cases, this may be. But in tho majority of instances it hurts no man to bo told that ho has done a thing 1 well. It helps him. I do not say that a word of praiso will take tho place of an increase of salary. But I do say that in thousands of cases these two factors in a young man's progress should more often go hand in hand than they do. Too many employes are left to infer that their services are satisfactory to their employers because they are allowed to work on without criticism. This silent praiso has stifled the ambition of many a young man. I have in mind a young man who became a vital part of tho interests of a house from eight years' connection with it. ^Hia salary was increased during that time, at intervals, from 8000 a year to $3,500. But ho never received the slightest recognition of his services other than this monetary evidence. When the opportunity came ho resigned simply because the pure heartlessness and selfishness of his employers jarred upon him. Exceptional case, some one says. Not at all. There arc men, and lots of them, too, to whom an honest word of praise means more than the clink of gold. The absence of the former has cost business houses the loss of many a good man. I give no larger place to sentiment in commercial strife than will any business man. But I do believe tliat there is a place for the kind word of approval expressed by the employer to the employe. It costs nothing, and I have known cases where it was remembered long after instances of increased salary were forgotten. It aiAlcei tho H»lr Grow. Thirteen miles southeast of San Diego, Cal., is the location of a spring whose waters have tho wonderful power of restoring the hair to bald scalps. We cannot give a detailed history of the spring, its discoverers and the remarkable "cures" it has wrought in an article suited to this department, therefore we will simply quote a statement made concerning it by the California board of health: "We must acknowledge that this water, from the evidence that has been brought before us, has made hair grow on scalps that were entirely bald. » • '* ;Of this we have had several example* on persons whom we have known *or\f» aam- bcr of years, and who, until after they hud used the waters of this spring, bad given «p all hope of over again bavin?

It was by this means that dueling was stopped in a certain district in Kentucky some forty years 115-0. At that time a traveling: preacher named Bowman, a strong 1 muscular man, was conducting' a series of religious meeting's in Kentucky. At one of them a well- known desperate character created a disturbance, and biiinjj publicly rebuked by Itowmunsuiit him a challenge to fight. The preacher's first thought was to treat the matter with silent contempt. Then he ix'Jleeted that dueling 1 was all Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest TJ. S.

THE POTATO DUKI.. too common in that region, and he de- •cided to accept the challenge. As the challojifred party Bowman had tho choice of weapons. He selected a half-bushel of large Irish potatoes, and stipulated that his opponent must stand fifteen paces distant and that only one potato n.t a time should bu taken from the measure. Tho desperado was furious, but Bowman insisted upon his rights as the challenged party, aud threatened to denounce the fellow as a coward if he made further objections. Seeing no way out of the scrape the desperado at last consented. Tho contest took place on the oufc- skirts of the town, and almost everybody in the place turned out to see tho fun. The seconds arranged the two men in position, by the side*f each being a half-bushel" measure filled with good-sizsd potatoes. Bowman throw the first one. It struck his opponent in a central spot and fell in pieces. A shout of delight went up from the crowd which flurried the desperado, and his potato flew wide of the im»rk. Bowman watched his chance, and every time his opponent stooped for a potato another one hit him in the side, leaving a wet spot on his clothes and then scattering on all sides. The fellow was hit in this way five times; then the sixth potato struck him in tho short ribs, and ho lay on the grass doubled up with pain and groaning: "Enough!" • 'The bystanders went wild with do- light, but Mr. Bowman looked very sober. The desperado was taken home and put to bed, and there he stayed for more than a week. And when, he again appeared ho was greeted with so many jokes that life was almost a burden to him. That was the end of dueling in that region. INGERSOLU'S GRANDSON. A Bright YOUDK »ter Who HM Everything Hie Own Wny. This picture shows Col. Robert G. Ingersoll and his grandson, Robert 6. Ingersoll Brown. Young Robert was born August?, 1803, is his grandfather's pride and prospective heir. lie is tho second child of Walston H. Brown, a banker, who married jCol. Ingersoll's eldest daughter, Eva, and bears a striking resemblance to his grandfather, as the picture shows. Even if the picture does not show it. Col. Ingersoll and Mrs. Ingersoll and the child's father and mother say so, and they should know. There are some points upon winch they differ. The boy has more hair on the'top of his head than his grandfather, but then he lacks the flow of language which has made his grandfather famous. Ho has not yet ex- JSQEKiOLI, AND HIS FAVOHITB GHAKIV CHII.I), pressed his views on relipious subjects, but ho has his grandfather's hftbit of bitterly denouncing what, displeases him. ills method is somewhat different, and usually more oft'uctivc. The boy was born at his father's country house. "Walston," near Dobbs' Perry, on the Hudson, lie has light hair and blue eyes, and is altojjL-thor a healthy, bright-looking 1 chap. His n-ramlinothcr remarks with pride that he ivoifched wlicn born eleven pounds. A DEMOC'RATIC EPIDEMIC. ChnrnctcrlHtio Corulurt of iho Party of ]>lncord. Next to the widespread business depression ami financial disturbance which were the first fmits of the fircat democratic victory of 1S'.12. and are still everywhere in evidence, the most striking effect of that untoward event was I tlie outbreak of ill-temper, violent lan- puap;e and bad manners in the party which carried the election. It bc-ffan. in Oregon with a coarso. and impudent dispatch from the democratic g-ovcrnor of that state to the president of tlie United States in answer to a eivil official communication. It was followed i by a venomous outburst from ihe dem- I ocratic g-overnor of Illinois against the ' judiciary of that state. Gov. Waite, of Colorado, elected by a coalition of democrats and populists, soon achieved unenviable notoriety by tho violence of his language, tho recklessness of his temper and the wildness of his vociferations. Lewelling-, of Kansas, another product of the democratic-populist alliance, already had his state by tho ears and the people embroiled in turmoil that came near endinp in bloodshed. In South Carolina Gov. Tillman at once boffan carrying things with so high a hand an to threaten conflict, not only with the local opposition, which he persistently exasperated to a point beyond endurance, but with the federal authorities, over which he assumed superiority and whose power he affected to despise; and he has had his state two or throe timas on the verge of civil war. • In congress Speaker Crisp has repeatr edly given way to outbursts of ill-temper and exhibitions of bad manners. Angry with members of his own party because they would not respond to his personal appeals to them to discharge their duty by appearing in their places and answering to their names at roll- call, he has vented his spleen on republicans, and with such arrogance of manner a» wan never known before distorted precedents and violated rules in pursuance of his own purposes and to gratify his spite. In New Jersey » democratic minority long obstructed public business trying to defeat by lawlessness tho people's will. But for the patience of the republican majority and their confidence in the final triumph of right through the safe, though slow, processes of law tho state of N«w Jersey would have been plunged into a condition of anarchy by angry and hotheaded democrats. It seems as if an epidemic of ill-temper and bad manners, characterized everywhere by violence, lawlessness, coarseness and brutality, had «ome in with tue party and overspread the country. Meanwhile, it is hardly necessary to add, republicans, true to their traditions and «pnst»ntin their temper, look curiously on, biding their time in patience, while the object lesson is before the country. Never before in oar history did a political party demonstrate so quickly" after its entrance upon power its utter unfltness. It has been in all respects a melancholy experience, and the country will not for a long time entirely recover from it; but in tho end it will prove salutary and wholesome. Once in a generation, perhaps, it is necessary that the peoplo for their sins should endure tho ordeal of a democratic administration backed by a democratic congress. But once is enough. — K. Y.
