HAUX, JEWELER AKD OPTICAN. TIME TABLE THAT SPRINTING MATCH. Distance may lend enchantment but It also lends error. The New York Sun says of the Caes county sprinting match: The half mile /oot race between two octogenarians at Logansporlt, Ind., was a sporting event ol rare Interest. The older of the contestants had reached the age of olghty-aix, and it was by only a few BeoondB that he lost the race, the purse of IjUOO and the championship of the Hoosier State, all of which were won by a rival who was but little younger. Time, 5:48. W could wish that the older man, pur cell, had won, though we are no sorry that it was ice better man Simond, who won. We have ID New York a lot of spry and respected clt Ix.ons. who are ovei eighty, and i Simons chooses to comt* here and issue a challenge to an octogenarian foot race, he may be able to get up match. If we had an event of the kind here, the gate money would fill a box. Now It was Hannabal Puroell who won, and Mr. Purcell Is now the champion of Indiana in his class. He is entitled to the honor of the stite championship, and it is difficult to see low the Sun got tho facts exactly turned around. As to ii contest with New York citi- rens the Indianapolis Joural Bays: In tho present depression of business an interstate octogenarian sprinting match would be a pleasing rehef. But the Sun Is wrong- in suggesting that Grandpa Simons should come tc New York and challenge the octogenarians of that state. As matters stand he is the champion octogenarian sprinter of tho United States, i( not of the world. He has won the bait and will hold it until It Is wrested from him. He does not have to defend it hy issuing challenges. If any New York octogenarian wants to contend for it lot him challenge Grandpa Simons, and when tho challenge is accepted, as, of course, it would be, the details of the race can be arranged. Such matters must be managed in good form. The Journal is correct in thia position and its attitude is clearly dictated by the sporting editor, tho sue cass of the distinguished "LIge" Hal ford. But the Journal /alls into th Sun's error and gives to Simondstho credit of victory. If negotiations are opened the Journal should bear in mind that It Is Purcell who is State champion and Purcell of Ciss stands ready to meet the world. How They IlkT* O*tn Irf>i>b«d After by th« D«moor»n. ' All through the speeches on the tariff made by democrats in congress there is the pretense that democracy is animated by tho single purpose of legislating in tho interests of tho "whole people," and not for a section. This is shallow demagog-ism, which, having been successfully employed before tho national convention of IS08, is still used in the expectation thut it will continue to duluilo Uie thoughtless anil tho Ignorant It is a specious argument, and was • more or less effective before the democrats put their theories into form, appealing to the country on the broad ground that protection was class legislation, and class legislation being repugnant to the American principle of government, tho argument swayed the minds of men of intelligence, but, who, unfortunately for themselves, their party and their country hod not given proper and close attention to this ab- truse question. iortha latter pirt of th«, oraity;^.,.. „ remain in effect The people know a ..•ure way to get rid of an income tax before thntjime.—Cleveland Leader. DEMOCRATIC JCQNQMY. (lfr.aU of the Rant About Republican Ex- Who does not remember tha braying of tho democratic press about the "billion-dollar congress?' 1 Of course all intelligent observers of events knew th&t it was primarily tho manifests tiou of the intense hatred of the democrats to the soldier element, especially over the passage of the disability pension law by tho Fifty-first congress; and, second, a pursuance of the well-known democratic policy of raising a parrot-cry to mislead tho masses. For It has long- been tho policy of tho democratic leaders to assume that tho people are fools, aud will believe an oft-repeated falsehood, and act upon that belief, sooner than take tho trouble to ascertain tho truth) and our political history racorda a number of instances in which they were successful thereby. No partisan catch-phrase was ever Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest IT. S. Gov't lie ,..,., , — i— _^ n ^ 1 .. pr .

It was claimed by tariff reformers of the Cleveland school that this was tho republican policy, and when a promise was made that a change in the government would be followed by the enactment of laws "in tho interest of tho whole people," impressionable, susceptible, sentimental and not well informed persons applauded, and said: "This is the broad, patriotic party for which the country has been waiting these many years. Wo will support it, for it legislates 'in the interest of the whole people.'" So tho democratic party was returned to power. It had control of the executive and legislative departments of the government. There was nothing to check its work of reform. It was as froe as the -wind. l The time has now come when it is be- ng Judged by its" works, and what is lion-dollar congress." ID point of fact, tho appropriations made by the Fifty- first congress were below that figure, but the ignorant among the voters believed tho lie, and took no trouble to ascertain tho facts. The house of the Fifty-sococd congress was democratic, and one of its first acts was the adoption of a buncombe resolution, introduced by that intolerable old humbug, Dolman, which declared that "no money ought to bo appropriated by congress from the public treasury ex PURE SECRET INVENTIONS Some Withhold from tlioPubllo nnd Die covered at L»«t. by StnituRPiu. In the early working 1 on arts and mechanics workmen were put on oath never to reveal the process used in their manufacture. Doors were kept closed, artisans going out were searched, visitors were vigorously excluded from admission, and false operations blinded the workmen themselves. The mysteries of every craft wore hedged in by quickset fences of empirical pretension and judicial affirmation. There used to be close by Temple Bar, in London, an old chemist's shop, the proprietor of which, in days gone by, enjoyed the monopoly of making 1 citric acid. More favorably circumstanced than other secret manufacturers, his was a process that required no assistance. Ho employed no workmen. Experts came to sample and assort and bottle his products. They never entered the laboratory. The mystic operations by which he R-rew rich were confined to himself, One day, having locked the doors and steel was melted. Clothed in wet raga to protect themselves from the heat, the workmen drew out the glowing-mold. Mr. Huntsman's factory had' nothing- more todisclo.se. The making? of cast steel had been discovered.

" One might, Justly suppose that, after the howl concerning the "billion dol- ar congress," and tlio adoption of suoh a resolution, the democrats of the bouse would, if only for partisan advantage, cut down the appropriations below the figures of the preceding congress. The fact is, however, that the Fifty-second congress spent more than its predecessor. Here are the, figures from the official footings of the clerk LOGANSPORT •1CT BOUKDl ..

The answer is found, not In th« resolldiflcotlon of tho republican vote, but in the democratic revolt againat sectionalism and tho elttMism of the degenerate democracy. This revolt no longer is a thing of speculation., The attituio of men liko Senator Hill, of New York, Senator Smith, of Now Jersey, and Senator Brioe, of Ohio, shows the manner in which the democracy of tha north has revolted against tho narrow, seliJsh , (sectionalism of. the policy adopted by (irover Cleveland and enforced by southern representatives of the democracy, Tlioro is nothing 1 in that policy which speaks for the "whole people." Everything in it shows discrimination in favor of tho south. It is aa assertion of sectional selfishness that has no parallel in the history cf tho country for the last generation. In it, there is no protection for northern interests, but there is protection for everything which tho south desires to culti- vuto. The south is not a manufacturing country, while in tho north and east manufactures flourish. Therefore, this democratic tariff bill discriminates against manufactures while Riving protection to comparatively in significant southern interests.. The people who were impressed by democratic prctenfiioulj of a desire to legislate for the "whole country, have had a rude awakening. They see at last that tho south, as it was before the war, is tho animating 1 and dominating spirit, and see, moreover, that tbo party under Buch direction is Intent on enforcing a purely selfish, narrow and sectional policy. It is "everything for the south; nothing 1 for the rest of the country." The discovery has couie late in the day, but not too late, and this ex- plaint why there is such a tremendous revolt against the democratic party, as it is represented by Cleveland and the men of the south.—Albany Journal. of th« appropriations committed The Fifty-first, the ''billion-dollar congress"—appropriated $988,417,183. The Fifty-second congress, demo* cratic, appropriated 11,027,104,547. Here is in.excess of almost tS9,000,- 000 as a starter. But tho appropria tiona made were not enough, and al ready the present congress has had to pass five deficiency bills, carrying an aggregate of 14,871,577; and the chairman of tho appropriations committee declared recently that tlie total of appropriations which must '_a inade to cover the deficiencies of the Fifty-sec ond congress will reach ?U,000,000, This makes the amount spent by tho Fifty-second congress almost $53,000, 000 morn thaa was appropriated by tho much-abused "billion-doHnr congress." If there is any voter stupid enough to hereafter believe any democratic rant concerning republican "extravagance" and democratic "economy," ho should at once array himself with the remainder of the fools and idiots of the country—Toledo Blade.

The monopoly of tho inventor was pone. A few months after the price was reduced by four-fifths. The poor man was heart-broken, and died shortly afterward, ignorant of tho trick by which he had been victimized. The manufacture of tinware in England originated in a stolen secret. Few readers need to bo informed that tinware is simply thin shcetiron plated with tin by being dipped into tho molten metal. In theory it is an easy matter to clean tho surface of iron. Dip the iron into a bath of boiling- tin and remove it, enveloped in tho silvery metal, to a place of cooling. In practice, however, the process is one of the most difficult of arts. It was discovered in Holland and guarded from publicity with the utmost vigilance for nearly half a century. England tried to discover the secret in vain until James Sherman, a Cornish miner, crossod the channel, insinuated himself surreptitiously into a tin-plate manufactory, made himself master of the secret and brought it home. The history of cast steel presents a curious instance of a manufacturing- secret stealthily obtained under tho cloak of an appo.il to philanthropy. Tho main distinction between iron and steel, as most people know, is that tho latter contains carbon. 'The one is converted into tho other by being heated for a considerable time in contact with powdered charcoal, in an iron box. Now stool thus made is unequal Tho middle of a bar is more carbonized than tho ends and the surface more than tho center. It is therefore, unreliable. Nevertheless, befon? the in- ventlOB of cast steel there w;us nothing better. In 1700 there lived at Attcr- cliffe, near Sheffield, a watchmaker named Huntsman. lie became dissatisfied with the watch springs in use and set himself to the task of making them homogeneous. "If," thought toe, "I can melt a piece of steel and cast it into an ingot, its composition should be tho same throughout." He succeeded. His steel soon became famous. Huntsman's ingots for fine work were in universal demand. He did not call them cast steel. That was his secret About 1770 a large manefactory of this peculiar steel was established at Attercliffe. Tho process was wrapped in secrecy by every one within reach, true and faithful men hired, tho work divided and subdivided, largo wages paid and stringent oaths administered. It did not avail. Ono mid winter's nifrht, as tho tall chimneys of the AtterclHfe stocl works belched forth, a traveler knocked at tho gate. It was bitter cold, the snow fell fast and the wind howled across the moat. The stranger, apparently a plowman or agricultural laborer seeking shelter from tho storm awakened no suspicion. Scanning the wayfarer closely and moved by motives of humanity the foreman grantod his request and let him in. Feigning- to bo worn out with tlw cold and fatigue, tho poor follow Bank upon the floor and soon appaared-to be isleep. That, however, was far from intention. Ho closed big eyes ap* entty, only. He saw workmen cut >ars of steel into bits, place them in ruoiblcs in a furnace. The fire was "•"-»'' to .its. extreme power until the How to Mnke the Arm rinmp and White. There is, perhaps, notliing more beautiful than a woman's white, shapely arm; the upper part plump- and firm, the elbow soft and dimpled, the lower arm swelling in gentle gradation, allowing the free develop- nent of muscles, etc., and then taper- ng down to the slender wrist. This, of course, is perfection oi form, and we have not all beautiful arms, but girls can by careful and persevering treatment do a great deal toward supplementing the deficiencies of nature. Dumb bell and calisthenic exercise is- the making of a shapely pair of arms. A little of this excellent practice, even- for ten minutes night and morning, will aid materially in making the arm round and firm. Girls should never lean on the table with their elbows. Nothing issc bad for the arms as this. It entirely spoils the elbow, making it hard, the skin red and coarse, and often very sore. I have seen arms, otherwise perfect, entirely spoiled by this blemish, and it is a habit to be avoided by girls who wish to have nice, white, dimpled elbows. The greatest trouble from, which the arm suffers is a rough redness at the back, just above the elbow. A good remedy for this, before going to bed, is to get some very hot water, a cake of unscented soap and a good rough towel. Make a thick lather with the soap and water and regularly scrub the arms with the loafah. Do not mind the smarting, but persevere, and after ten minutes' hard rubbing bathe them in the hot water and dry with a coarse batli towel. After well drying them rub on some vaseline or flowers of sulphur and milk. This ;reatraent, if preserved with, will not fail to have the desired effect, but it must be continued. A thick paste made of oatmeal prepared and hot water and rubbed on the arms night and morning- is an excellent thing for making the arms soft and white; also lemon juice, but all skins will not bear this. Hairy arms are very unsightly and a great trouble to dark girls. No singeing or cutting will do any good, for the hair will grow ajrain, even thicker and longer than before. The only remedy for this, except, of course, the use o£ tweezers, which is a most painful operation, is to rub the parts affected with a preparation of peroxide of hydrogen. This will lighten the hair and if used frequently will make them so brittle that they can be brushed away in a, great measure.—N. Y. Advertiser.
