I CROW OUT-TALKS PARROT. i A talking match between a crow nnd a parrot was tbe novel entertainment enjoyed by residents on North Morgan 'street. Rusliville. William' Toe, the jeweler, has u tamo crow that is giCtod ' with A' limited knowledge of. the \ Queen's English. The few words It knows, however, it can rattle oil with surprisliiK'nccurncy. It can say "Hello 'Bill!" "How's the weather?" "Fine day, boys!" "When do we chew?" and one or two other expressions with such distinctness that -the crow is a favorite in the neighborhood. The other (lay a vender of parrots came past Mr. Toe's He stopped inside and Mr. Toe offered $25 for a parrot tlmt could talk ns well as the crow. The parrot vender put up a. small wager Hurt ho had H bird that could out-talk Mr. Foe's crow. The neighbors were called in us judges, and Instructed thmt clearness, distinctness and accuracy of expression wore to be considered, .together with extent of vocabulary. The parrot bad a half-dozen set phrases, nimong others, 'Tolly wants' 1C to 1," and "Oli, see my new shoes!" which It ..repeated in its bost form. But the crow completely overshadowed the parrot when it made its little speech. The judges were unanimous In favor of the cro/w, and It was the general opinion tlia-t lie had with ease defeated the gaudy parrot. BL'CKLEN'S ARNICA SALVE.

The South Bend Times, (Dem.) says: The attempt to force Arthur Sewall off tlio Bryan ticket Is confined to Tom Watson and some of his extreme followers. It will not succeed. There Is no power lodged in any committee .to take Sewall off the ticket. He was duly nominated by the Chicago convention, has been officially notified of his selection, and accepted the nomination. The only manner In which Mr. Sewall can be taken off the ticket is by his own direction-^by his resignation. That is not nil probable. If he should come off, however,.there Is no probability of Tom Watson taking his place. Watson would not be at all acceptable to Democrats. SENT IT TO HIS MOTHER IN GERMANY.

N As a p.irt of its plans for practical work in the extension of the foreign trade of 'Uio United States, the National Association of Manufacturers Is now preparing 'to establish an exhibition warehouse In Caracas, Venezuela, for the display and sole of American product* of various kinds.. Circular of Information, No. 10, which has jiist been issued i>y the association, gives the details of this enterprise and presents a. large amount of Interesting information about the trade of Ven- GKUl.'l. A concession granted to the Association hy the Venezuelan government creates particularly favorable conditions for the establishment of such a sample warehouse, inasmuch as goods •entered for exhibit wjl be admitted free of duty, the customs dues to be paid only in case of actual sale.' The Him of the Association is to stimulate trade between the United Stales and Venezuela, by familiarizing the merchants of Venezuela with the American products which they can purchase to advantage. This Is the object of the proposed exhibition warehouse, which is designed solely for the display of actual American merchandise to Venezuelan buyers. To carry out this plan it is proposed to lease a large building in the city of Caracas, which is admirably adapted by location and otherwise for the purpose of this exhibition. Samples of American manufactured products salable in Venezuela will be placed in this building, and the exhibition will be placed under competent management, solely under the. control and direction of the National Association of Manufacturers, The general nslstants, each of whom will be familiar with several branches of business, and well informed concerning the requirements of •the Venezuelan trade and the business methods of that country. It will bo the duty of the manager and his assistants to show the goods in the sample warehouse and give full information to intending purchasers, and also to visit business houses in Caracas and elsewhere in Venezuela for the purpose of creating trade. •ft is not intended that this exhibition warehouse shall be a source of profit to fthe association. It is only desired tlwvt the proceeds of the exhibition shall be sufficient to cover the cost of maintenance. It Is estimated that an entrance fee of $100 from each exhibitor, and a charge of $1.50 per annum per square foot of space used for exhibits will yield enough to cover, or nearly cover, the running espouses of the warehouse. The minimum charge for space has been fixed at $55 per annum. This, with the entrance fee, make the minimum charge for any exhibit ?125 per annum, in addition to thu costs of transportation from the United States to the warehouse in Caracas. The entrance fee and the charge for space nsed for exhibits constitute all the charges which will be Imposed upon exhibitors by the Association. All the services of-the manager and his assistants will be rendered without additional cost, and it will be the duty of the attaches of the exhibition to pro,mote 'the interests of exhibitors in every manner possible. Each exhibitor will practically have at this small cost a trained salesman to look after his Interests. Commenting upon the opportunities for American trade in Venezuela, President Theodore C, Seach says in the circular above quoted: "From close investigations, It is believed that the American prices of hardware will compare favorably with the English. Tho German prices are low, but there Is no comparison between the German and American goods, so far, as quality is concerned, and Venezuelan merchants in hardware appreciate this. "Furniture of a poor quality is mostly made In the country, but It Is extremely expensive. • The batter quality of furniture all comes from France, a"S well as all household decorations aud furnishings. This Is undoubtedly a splendid opportunity for the introduction of American furniture. "In wearing apparel, sucfo as shoes, hats and clothing, there is no market except for the very best qualities, as the duties arc assessed on gross weights and th'e cheaper grades cannot compete with those .manufactured in Venezuela. "No leather is manufactured in the' country, except a very poor quality, and as most of the shoes now selling in Venezuela are made In the country, there is a very satisfactory market for the sole of .manufactured leather, uppers and shoe findings. "If Venezuela should become better. acquainted with the,merits of American machinery and labor-saving appliances, there would be no question that a good trade might be found tlhere, but •samples of this line of goods must be shown there before they can be sold,, as the Spanish-American 'can seldom form any comprehensive Idea of the merits of a piece of machinery from printed matter. '.-••• , . °. "The machinery used on the coffee and cocoa plantations comes mostly from England aod .Holland. It is believed, 'however, that this class of.ma- chinery is very heavy fui& cumbersome as compared with thait 'of the United States. 'iu brief, it is the question of the merchants of Venezuela that the following amides might be.Iniportcd from the United Sta.tes with profit in'addi- tion to those that arc now' going in, viz: American building material, hardware, common'- glassware,' cutlery, fciucltifi wire, mining and sugar machinery, agricultural Implements, carriages, cars, steam engines, lumber, cotton goods, certain kinds of wenring apparel, and all kinds* of articles'for home furnishing and decoration, carpet-?, curtains, rugs nnd novelties." ,WHAT -WALTER WjEJIiLMAN SA\'S Hunttagton Herald: Walter Wellinau the well-known correspondent of the Cluicngo Tiimes-Herald, himself a Dem- crat, says'that Indiana is certain to be carried for McKmley. He writes as follows from 'Washington: "Indfana seems to be sate for McKinley. Wh'.lii nt Indianapolis I'ast week the writer made some inquiries as to the state of the campaign, nnd discovered Hint if Bryan carries Indiana next November, both the Republican and Democratic State committees will bo greatly surprised. The confidence of the Republican committee in their own campaign Is not very good evidence this early in rlio battle, bnt the tolerably well-kept secret of an expectation on the part of t<he silver campaign mnnngers that the light is going aga.inst them must be accepted as highly siffUlflcanr. While I am not, of course, permitted to vise any names, I am well satisfied that the men who are malting Mr. Bryan's c;un- paigin in the Hoosier State know the buttle Is going against them, and admit it among themselves, lu fact, their anxiety Is ivs to their State ticket," In a recent letter to "the manufacturers Mr. W. F. Benjamin, editor of the Spectator, Rushford, N. Y., says: "It may be a pleasure to you to know the high esteem In which Chamberlain's medicines are held by the people of your own States, where they must be best known. An aunt of mine, who resides at Dexter, Iowa, was about to visit me a few years since, and before leaving home wrote me, asking If they were sold here, stating if they were not she would bring a quantity with her, ns she did not like to be without them." The medicines referred to are Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, famous for Its cures of colds and croup: Chamberlain's Pain Balm for rheumatism, lame back, pains In the side and chest, and Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Di- arrhoea Remedy for bowel complaints. These cedlclnes have been in constant use in Iowa for about a quarter of ,a century. The people have learned that they are articles of great worth and merit, and unequaled- by any other.

Washington Post: A young lady with a pug dog tied up in a shawl scrap attracted considerable attention on a Metropolitan' car from Georgetown the other day. The pug was wrapped in a small rug to protect lilin from the straps, and seemed quite contented to be carried In this new fashion, which left fois Head and legs free. The cou : duator glanced Inquiringly at the bundle of dog as the young lady tendered her fare with this explanation: "You see, I'm going away on the train.and I want to take Punch with me. They would put lilm away off in the >ba;ggage dnr If he were free, so I carry iTim" In my shawl strap. 'He's baggage ibis way, and they can't object to liiim to a .passenger ear.

ANOTHER OCCUPATION. A line of enjoyment to which women JKive not ns yet given much attention is that of window dressing for merchants. This has now not only become an art but a business. It would seem that women, as they are accustomed to not only dressing themselves but their homes, should have the taste and the Judgment for this, as well as for such tilings as the drawing of booths at fai'rs arid of baru-lik-e halls for receptions* 1)oUl of Avlllch they ' do and do well. Chicago has a lady window dresser, Miss Alld'a Ayer, who has no especial draining for such work, nor indeed, for any other, having been reared in affluence. But the failure of. her father, first in business and soon after in health, put her upon her uncultivated resources and she has chosen this line of work, and has, It is said, become one of the most successful at the business. Many a day's work IB lost'by sick headache caused by indigestion and stomach troubles. DeWitt's Little Early Risers are the most effectual pill for overcoming such difflcultles.~-Jno. M. Johnston.

NOTHING WR.BCKS THE CONSTITUTION. More effectually than fever and agni-. That nerve destroying malady, when onco It takes firm root, subverts every function, exhausts the physical energies, impoverishes the blood and clouds the in'erital faculties.

Hostetter's Stomach Bitters will, however, be found all sufficient either for its eradictiou or prevention.
