" " 940am ' 'PROTECTION restricts production because it restricts trade" Bay the tariff reformers every day of their existence, but not one of them over attempts to prove this unprovable and false, theoratlcal, free trade, fundamental declaration. There is not a shade of truth or fact in it. Test it by the situation in our country today. The threat of the destruction of protection stopped manufacturing production more than a year ago. in the midst of unprecedented activity and prosperity in such production. The results are only too well understood by the millions of eufforers from that "change." Could there bo clearer proof that protection instead of restricting 1 production enlarges and diversifies it, and the trade that flows from Jt? and this clear proof is cor robborated by all of our previous experience. Why do people believe and promulgate false doctrines destructive to their own welfare? An Intm-eitlnir Account of tho Perionatl- ty of One of the Uene-Kuawn Men of the Day—Ulvinn Innplntlon I« Hl» Strength. Rev. Dr. Charles FT. Parkhurst Is now ranked "among men who have made history w'th the- weapons of the agitator." Indeed, in tlie importance of his work and In his methods lie 1ms been compared to Cromwell and Luther, because, his friends say, nothing less than divine inspiration and divine strength were vouchsafed him In his great crusade against vice in New York. , As one of the commanding- personalities of the day Dr. Parkhurst is interesting, and in McClure's Magazine an appreciative article tells of tho man from his early youth to tho development of his career, when tho eyes of the wholo world were fastened upon him. What appears singular in the record of this man's achievement is that it all lies outside the channels of activity, for which and for which only both by temperament and training he was qualified to follow. As a student at Amherst he was looked upon as a person of gentle disposition, It was said of him later, when he became an instructor In the preparatory school of the college town, that the future would offer him a career of congenial employment in the pulpit. While yet In this preparatory school he met among his pupils the young woman who became his wife, and their honeymoon was spent abroad. In Germany the reformer of the future lived and'studied amid scenes that were alive with memories of that great reformer who fought the greatest fight of his time and whose triumph was one of the greatest of all time.

The D.

Mr. Turpie haa nevsr been a patient man and baa always been supremely a democratic partisan, and it IB not very surprising that he seeks an occasional' but formerly familiar, "turn of hie thoughts" from the contemplation of tho wreck and ruin of the democratic party which surrounds and confronts him, • THE lamentable, self-inflicted death of George W. Patrick, if the state, mentB concerning it are correct, is another striking illustration of ' 'man's Inhumanity to man." He had served the Louisville & Nashville Railroad Company as a locomotive engineer for more than forty years. He waa so vigilant and ;trustworthy that he was constantly placed in the most responsible positions on the road, and at last the strain upon him began to wear him out. His falling was observed. What waj the result? Was he given a less responsible position—work that he could safely do, and keep a hopeful heart in him to help him do "the best he could?" No. He was but a machine that had been used for forty years, and having ceased to do perfect work must be oast aside entirely. ' His j human being was completely ignored. In the better days to come humanity will demand and enforce a better treatment of man in luoh oases. KEV. DB. CHABLES H.

Dr. Parkhurst was called to a church in Lennox, Mass., soon after he was admitted to the pulpit, and to the people of that almost ideal village his ministry was of the tolerant, conservative sort most in favor with rich congregations. Always rigorous in his morality and rather broad in his interpretation of tho Scriptures, the young preacher gained no especial renown but his people liked him, for he was scholarly and literary. His surroundings were delightful. Cultivated men and women were pleased and, no doubt, benefited by his ministry. Ho had the means of ease and ample leisure. Ho could go abroad in summer and visit Old World scenes, and this freedom to indulge a taste for travel remained with him when he exchanged the pulpit at Lennox for the more important one of the Madison Square Presbyterian church in New York city some thirteen years B F°- „ , Till within four years ago Dr. Parkhurst was known as a "rich man's preacher." Itutone Sunday he preached it, sermon that made him known all over the land. He attacked crime, declaring- that tho chief criminals were those in power. He told how blackmail was levied by men high in office, ho'.v the depraved paid a revenue to tho powers in politics and he shocked, terrified and amazed those that heard him, for .the sermon was one of the strongest that had been delivered from any pulpit since the days when Theodore Parker and Henry Ward Bcecher inveighed against the slave power. It is all recent history Dr. Parkhurst's subsequent movements. Ho had been associated for some time with the New York Society for the Prevention of Crime, and on the death of ita president, Eev. Dr. Howard Crosby, was elected to that office. Tho organization was a regularly chartered body and had a little influence, but under tho direction of Dr. Parkhurst it speedily grew to bo a mighty agency for well doing. It was tho vehicle that Dr. Parkhurst made use of to expose tho crime and evil that official corruption thrived on and the storm his crusade aroused was echoed all over the country. Then it was that the rare courage of the man was displayed. Ho did not speak from hearsay but gave the testimony of his eyes. He visited tho places he told about, saw tho scones he described and the proof he gathered ho took before the grand jury. Threats were made to kill him. Ho was sneered at. Tammany hall was arrayed against him. So wero tho police department and tho minor courts, tho gin mills and the thugs and heelers all over tho city. But Dr. Parkhurst fought them all. A police_captain was indicted on charges brought by Dr. Parkhurst. The police commissioners grow alarmed. Changes wore made in the force. Bad men were dropped. Gambling houses and other resorts .were closed up. .... 'the cunnluge«t;of lil»~enemlo».' f' 1 . •"'.' WONQ THE PATHFINDER. """ 4 Clllmie Pioneer Who Bat B«ea In California Slnco 1844. Wong Nip Yong, of San Francisco, is supposed to be the first Chinaman who ever landed in California. Another and perhaps even more notable thing about Mr. Yong is that he has just upset a very ancient and sacred Chinese tradition. He has registered his namo and wrinkled face with tho internal revenue collector at San Francisco and this, says tho Examiner, means that ho intends to die in this country in direct contravention of tho rulo which requires that tho bones of every true celestial shall find rest in his native soil. In his certificate Wong says he is aging toward ninety years. AH his teeth are gone. He is cultivating as- Powder ABSOLUTELY PURE at Paris for the year 1893 have just been published. They show that last year 1,C48 persons weru treated for hydrophobia, and that only six of them died of that disease. Of the number mentioned there were 1,470 French people and 178 foreigners. Among the foreigners were forty-three Spaniards, thirty-five Greeks, twenty-three English, twenty-two Belgians, eighteen Egyptians, fourteen British subjects from India, nine Swiss, nine Dutch and six Portuguese, Since M. Pasteur commenced to practice his inoculations against hydrophobia 14,480 persons have been treated by his method, and only seventy-two have died of tho disease. DESIRES PROMOTION.

Wong came to California in 1844, long before gold was discovered and prior to the establishment of a Chinatown district. A sailing vessel touched in at Hong Kong and Wong secured employment on it. He was a sort of Chinese Christopher Columbus—a pathfinder for the denizens of the orient. Ho landed at Monterey and worked his way up to Yerba Uuona and subsequently to the mines. Wong was one of the unlucky follows who did not dig a fortune out of the yellow rock. Still »e mined for many years, hope for springs just as eternal in the Chinese breast as in any other. In his old age he sought a place of retirement and settled in Mountain View, where he has lived for many years. Wong's humble name does not appear in Bancroft's biographies, but he is a California pioneer just tho same. GOV. TILLMAN. Oonjreisman Whltlnsr Want* to Be Governor of Michigan. Jnstin Rico Whiting, of St. Clair, who now represents tho Seventh Michigan district in congress, has recently announced his intention to become a candidate for gubernatorial honors. I He is one of the most influential demo- I crats of Michigan, but has quite a I number of opponents who will do their | best to defeat him in the state convention. Mr. Whiting was born in Bath, Steuben county, X. Y., February 18, 1847. When two years of age he removed with his parents to St. Clair, Mich. At the age of sixteen he was admitted to the Michigan university, but left college at tho close of the sophomore year. He is now engaged in various manufacturing fcnd trading A Child'. Vocabulary. The statement that a child 5.V year* of age would not have morn than 160i words in its vocabulary that it wa» able to use nnderstandlngly led a careful mother to note for a month the- number of words used by her child. All the parts of speech used were re-: corded, with the result that in thi* case the child appeared to have a vocabulary of 1.528 word*. An iBTentlTe Peopl*.

Although the supreme court of South Carolina has declared the now famous dispensary act unconstitutional, Gov. B, R. Tillman continues to be one of the:most interesting figures in American political life. He proposes to stand for a state liquor monopoly as long as he shall remain in power. Gov. Tillman is essentially a self-made man. He was born in Edgefield county, S. C., in 1847, the youngest of eleven children. Ho attended country schools until ho was fourteen years of age, and then studied three years in Bethany academy, Liberty Hill. Ho did not serve in the confederate army, as he was taken sick in July, 1864, and was an Invalid for 'two years, during which time ho lost an eye from abscess produced by inflammation resulting from hard study by Ughtwood knot fires. The death of GOV. TILLUfAIf, OF SOUTH CAHOLINA. an elder brother in I860 threw tho whole responsibility of managing 1 a. large plantation on hi.s shoulders. Early in his career he began to take a deep interest in the condition of the farming population of his state, and later on was instrumental in establishing the South Carolina farmers' college. The establishment of the people's party brought him prominently to Ihe front, although he didn't affiliate with it. He was elected governor in 1890 as the candidate of tho reform wing of democracy over Gen. Earle, and reflected in 1893. lie has- never run as an alliance candidate, although a member of the order, and has kept down the third party in South Carolina by working in unison with its programme.

He is said to stand well with the rank and file of the democratic party, but is persona non grata with a powerful combination of politicians. Introduced by Dnnuu. This story is told of Alexander Dumas. It is well known that he could not refuse a request—at least, not often. One day he gave a man a letter to one of his intimate friends in Brussels. The friend, a wealthy merchant, received him as though he had been Dumas' own brother, introduced him to his circle of acquaintances, placed his stable at the man's disposition, and did everything in his power to make life pleasant for Dumas' friend. After the lapse of fourteen days the man suddenly disappeared, and with him the best horse in the merchant's stable. Six months later the merchant visited Dumas and thanked him for the kind of people he recommended to his consideration. "Dear friend," ho added, "your friend is a shark. Ho stole the best horse in my stable." Astonished, Dumas raised hi» hands toward Heaven, and cried: "What, ho stole from you, too!" What Surgery Can Do. The extent to which the human body can be mutilated without causing death is beyond what most people think. Of course, the removal of the largest limb is a familiar fact, but tho successive removal of all the limbs would in most cases result in nothing worse than inconvenience. In tho same way the internal organs may be extirpated. This is facilitated by their quality. Ono kidney may be removed and the other will make up for the loss by doing double work. One eye may be taken out and the sight remain practically unimpaired. Large portions of the brain may bo removed with no injury to life or intellect. A portion of tho intestines has been cut out, and the ends sewed together and their normal action and function have not been interfered with. MOTHERS!
