The village, as I have indicated, is chiefly devoted to manufacturing, and about fifty years ago the population was American, but since then there have come in, first tho Irish, then the French, and more recently the Polish, until the original native population has become submerged. Mr. Itellamy's people have resided there since about 18BO. His father was for thirty or more years pastor of the Hupti.st church in Chloopeo Falls. Edward was born there and has lived there always except on account of travel or business. In reply to a question as to how he first became interested in social questions Mr. Bellamy said: "Well, I do not know. 1 think It was a very early and natural taste. Of course, iu a village like this ono sees a great deal of the workings of the industrial system directly. Such thing's are brought moro closely to a man living in a place of have been really serious In assart- Ing that. The government of the United States and of tho states is no' now tho popular government. It IB run by what are called 'our business interests,' that is to say, the moneyed interests. It represents great aggregations of money and not the popular will. According- to the mortgage statistics of this last census or calculations based upon them made by Mr. George K. Holmes, special census agent for that subject, it is shown that nine percent: of the American people own seventy-one per cent, of the property in the country, leaving but twenty-nine per cent, to be distributed among the remaining ninety-one per cent, of tho people. It Is that nine per cont. of moneyed people who govern the country and diutate tho policy of congress. The people are 'not in it,' as the expression goes. At the present time it is notorious that tho sugar trust and other great syndicates are dictating tho terms of the present tariff bill. Under such a condition of things as this it is necessary, if tho people would indicate their will, that they should have recourse to popular demonstrations of un unusual character. The machinery of the government, executive, representative and judicial, has passed from under their control." "We were speaking of those strikes in the mining districts?" "Yes; as to the great strikes in the coal mines and other Industrial disturbances, there is of course no direct connection between them and tho march of these commonweal armies. These strikes are in resistance to tho tendency to lower wages, by which means the Highest of all in Leavening Power.— Latest U. S.

It may not be said to have already begun." Aimirn STEIWAX. THE DIVINING ROD Itt Cue Among the Anclcnti—Lady Djroa'i Mother linn tlio Fowor. The divining rod, often called the 'Wand of Mercury" and the "Hod of Aaron," is a forked branch, usually of and sometimes of iron, or even >rass and copper, by means of which, t is alleg-ed, minerals and water may be discovered beneath the surface of he earth. The ancient use of a rod or wand as an instrument of magic is cnown to readers of romance. The use of the rod for mystic purposes is not, however, confined to fairy tales; for in managers of our business [ the sacred book of the Jews frequent operations are seeking 1 to load upon the working 1 classes the losses and damage consequent upon the recent and continuing business crisis. There is no hope in the lonff run that these strikes in resistance to lowering 1 wages can succeed. The only hope for the laboring classes is the collective or public conduct of industry by the people through their governmental agencies for the common interest. More and more the working 1 masses are beginning to see that this is for them the only way out." "Do you consider the Coxoy movements and these other movements to be, strictly speaking-, socialistic in character?" "They are eminently socialistic in character, inasmuch as they appeal to the principle of the collective, or public organization of industry, but the members of these various armies are very probably not themselves avowed nationalists or socialists.

After reminding them of their official oath to support the con. Btitutloo of the United States Mr. Hoar said: "There U a large majority of Dem- ooratlo Senators on thlt floor who avow the doctrine that duties for protection are a groan violation of tho Constitution itaelf. And yet they bring to ui a bill crowded with protective duties and toll ui that they are prepared to commit this perjury and to be accomplices in thit revolu. tlon because they think their measure, taken M a whole, is better than the existing law, or because they think this revolution and perjury are necessary to buy votes for a measure that cannot otherwise be paised." this sort than In a large city where tha different classes live in distinct quarters. I think pretty much everybody Is interested in social questions these days, aud I do not think my case is peculiar in that respect at all." "Mr. Bellamy, J think wu should like to know a little of your views as to these very reoentsociallstic movements, or whatever they may be called, which have developed into occurrences like this invasion of Washington byCoxcy's »rmy, and whether you think there If any connection between them and the raining strikes and tho strikes which are occurring among other industries, and especially your opinion of them from a socialistic point of view." "The industrial army movement, yon mean—this army which is coming- in from various parts of the country. I think I agree with th<» press generally in considering them very serious signs of the times indeed. They indicate, I should say, a growing feeling on the part of the people that an economic system for the provision of labor for tho people is a proper function for the government. 'Government employment for tho unemployed' I see lathe inscription on the flag carried by the Kelly army, which is the body now coming from California, and that Is the general demand In one form or another—that the government organize the industrial Interests for the people. Thto seems to be at the bock of all these bodies. 1 see that Senator Howley, in answer to Senator Allen, says: 'There is no need that these armies •hould collect to make these extraordinary demonstrations because the lenate and house of representatives at represent the people and may " 'o do tt IDWABD BELLAMY. find themselves obliged to use the socialistic or nationalistic method. Circumstances have forced them upon socialistic lines of action." "Do yon think that eventually socialistic revolution will work itaelf along 1 those lines?" "I think, If yon ask me what tho future development of this thing will be, that while it is easy to predict tho ultimate outcome, it is not possible for anyone to predict the methods and the precise steps by which the result will be brought about. I confidently anticipate that within fifteen years the people -of the United States will have committed themselves definitely to Industrial reorganization on lines of nationalism, tl»at is to say, the setting aside of the private conduct of industry in favor of a cooperative organization on a national basis, in the common interest. I expect in the meanl time, and in tho near future, to see a series of extraordinary popular demonstrations which it is to be hoped will mention is made of the rod or staff. In some passages the rod is represented at the same time as an instrument of miracles in tho hands of the Lord and of magic in the hands of the dcviL Jacob agrees with Laban to keep his flocks, and procured a brood of striped younglings by tho mystic means of peeled twigs of poplar, hazel and chestnut. The two most memorable events in the escape of the children of Israel from the land of Ejrypt were the pass- ape through the midst of the sea and the striking- of the solid rock in lloreb, when water spranff forth; both these events were accomplished by the use of tha rod. In profane antiquity, beside the Egyptians, the Chaldeans were skilled in divination hy means of n rod. Divination was practiced by the Scythians, by the Brahmins of 1'ersia, by the Brahmins of India. In Greek mythology Minerva and Mercury produced .heir miracles by the use of a wand, instance, Minerva, by touching- Jlysses with a rod, restores him to youth, or transfers him into an old man covered with raps The art of divination was known to the Romans, whose priests carried the aujj-ural rod. But it was only in tlie fifteenth century that \vc iind the divining rod turned systematically to the search of luctals. | It passed successively from Germany I to Flanders, tlience to England. It i lias frequently been used for the discovery of hidden treasures, stolon prop| erty, and the authors of crime. It was j not, however, until the middle of the I seventeenth century that tlio divining | rod was employed in the discovery of i water spring's. The question of its cllicacy for such a purpose was pro- I posed hy Robert ]>oylc, in 1000, to the j Itoyal society in London, as u subject [ for inquiry, and from that day to this j the opinion ot mankind has been divided on the question. Tho matter has lately been brought before the public of the north of Kn- g-land. Yet it is rather remarkable to find that the same subject was discussed in the same district a hundred years ago, owing to the remarkable powers of divining possessed by a lady of quality In tho district. This was none other than Judith Noel, afterward Lady Milbanke, the mother of Lady liyron. Miss Noel discovered her marvelous power when quite a girl, yet did not publicly divulge it, for she was afraid she would be ridiculed or get the name of a witch, and in either case she thought that she would certainly never get a husband. Ihe first indication she had of being able to use the divining rod was manifested when, as a girl of sixteen, she was with her family at a chateau in France, tlio owner of which wanted to find a spring to supply his house with water, and for that purpose sent for a peasant who could perform the feat with a twig. The Englishmen ridiculed the idea, but agreed to witness the trial. Tho man soon announced that ho had arrived at the object of his search. The English party now tried for themselves, but all, in vain, until it came to the turn of Miss Noel, when to her amazement and alarm, .slio found that she possessed the same faculty as tlio peasant The 'possession of her mysterious power was kept secret for many years. It was not until Dr. Hutton, tho well known Newcastle mathematician, published in 1803 Ozanam's researches, where the divining rod was treated) as absurd, that Miss Noel (then Lady Mil* banke) wrote a letter to him, signed X. Y. 7j., stating tho facts which she knew. The doctor answered tho letter, begging further information. Lady wrote again; and he, in a second letter, requested the name of his correspondent, which was immediately given. Lady Milbankc one morning showed the experiment to a select coinpany. She took a thin, forked hazel twig, about sixteen inches long, and held it by the ends, tho joint pointing downward. When she came to a place where water was supposed to bo underground, the twig immediately \jcnt, and the motion was more or less rapid as she approached or withdrew from the supposed spring. When junt over it the twig turned so quicklyas to snap, breaking near the fingers. Sh« repeated the trial several times, and her indications were always accurate. One more illustration may be given of the divining- power of Lady Milbanke. A few years after her correspondence with Dr. Hutton she went, at his request, to see him at Woolwich, where she showed him the experiment and divined a spring in a field which he had lately bought near the new college, then building. This same field he afterward sold to the college, and got a large price for it in consequence ol the spring of water.—Newcastle (Eng.)Chronicle. "Disfigured For Life" Is the despairing: cry of thousands. afflicted with Unsightly skin diseases. Do you realize what this disfiguration means to sensitive souls ? It means isolation, seclusion. It is a bar to social and business success. Do you wonder that despair seizes- upon these sufferers when Doctors fail, Standard remedies fail, And nostrums prove worse than useless? Skin diseases are most obstinate to cure or even relieve. It is an easy matter to claim to cure them, but quite another thing to do so.
