To vote a mixed ticket stamp the square at tho left of each candidate you wish to vote for and do not stamp la the square at the head of the ticket If you aro a democrat but. want the republican county ticket elected, stamp your rooster on the National State ticket and the eagle on the county ticket. A'DEMOCRAT'S VIEW OF IT. George Ticknor Curtiss a prominent Democrat of New York, like General Ban Sickles, has denounced Cleveland aad will support Harrison. Mr. Curtis gives his reasons in, the following letter: SICHFIELD SPKIXGS, Jv. Y,, Sept. 12 : 92. VFilburF. Wafceman, Esq., General Secretary of the American Protective League: Dear Sir—In fulfillment of' my promise made in response to your letter of the 7th icst.. I proceed to give you my views of the protective issue as it has been made by the two political parties in the pressnt campaign. First, however, let me observe, by way of preface to what I am about to say,, that. although I have for very many years acted and voted •with the Democratic party, I can not do so i a the coming presidential election- A vote for the nominee of the late Democratic national convention will mean a Vote for free t,racle. Ts -will mean a vote for the doctrines enunciated in the platform, which denounces the Republican tariff as & fraud on the great majority: of the American people for the benefit of a few, stigmatizes a protective tariff as unconstitutioaal, and proposes to lay duties for obtaining revenue only,, without regard to the protection- of our own industries. I can not by my own vote affirm anything so false as this. A man must pay some regard to truth in politics as well as in other things. To affirm what I believe to be untrue political doctrine is something that I never did, and I shall not do it now. I consider the antl-v protection "plank" in the Democratic platform to be as false as anything- that I have ever known to be asserted in a similiar instrument. If it bad been said that the existing tariff needs revision, I might have concurred. But it has gone tho whole length of denying that any protection to our domestic industries is within the constitutional power of Congress; I repudiate this doctrine, because I know better. This is not the first time that I have differed from my party. I was born and bred in the State of Massachusetts and lived there until I was fifty years old. I was educated as a Whig in politics and I learned constitutional law from Daniel Webster and Joseph Story. In future communications I shall show that in laying duties on foreign products it is perfectly constitutional for Congress to lay them so as to encourage our American industries, and that a tariff for revenue only would bring ruin upon the Government and upon the people. Compare this with Judge Baldwin's and the Pharos' attempt to claim that Democracy favors protection in any shape or form. THE editor of the Journal pretends that there is no difference between protection for the sake of revenue, and protection for the sake of protection It, is likely that he don't know that there is any difference, To use his language, "Protection is protection, no matter by what name it is called." It is doubtful if he has ever heard of a tariff for revenue only.— Pharos. Democracy has in the past advocated a tariff for revenue with incidental protection and a tariff for revenue only. The latter means a tariff -without any protection whatever. The last democratic national convention -went farther and declared protection a fraud and unconstitutional. The Pharos cannot advocate a tariff for revenue with incidental protection and stand on its party platform. It cannot take that stand without indorsing the Republican platform which advocates a' 1 tariff which shall raise the necesarv revenues of this govern- .ment, so adjusted as to afford protection to American industries. The Pharos now proposes to call the tariff ,a revenue tariff but so impose it as to afford protection. The voters of Caps county should remember that it is the men who made the tariff plank in the Chicago convention andnotthePharos that will make the laws of this country in the event of Democratic success. The policy of protection is safe only in the hands of the party that advocates it in its platform. THE Journal congratulates itself on the conversion of its opponent to the doctrine of protection. It would remind, it however, that the men -who pronounced protection a fraud and unconstitutional in tbe national Democratic convention will also make the laws of this country in the event of Democratic success. Henry Walterson said that every man who believed in protection in any shape or form if he was honest would join the Republican party. He introduced that free trade plank and knows what it means. The principle of protection cannot be entrusted to the men who are opposed to it. The Pharos should urge its readers to support the Republican candidates. PKOXECTIOX for the sake of protection is a fraud and every intelligent man knows it.—Pharos. ' Our;'esteemed contemporary in attempting to balance itself on a shadow stood on edge is* provoking a good deal of laughter. Its efforts to repudiate the platform of its party wotft work. The men who made that platform make democratic laws. They declared protection a fraud and unconstitutional, and the people cannot be fooled into indorsing that by tho statement that there are two kinds .of protection, protection that is protection and protection that is protection. a low tariff labor was not compelled to organize to maintain •wages.—Pharos. No, there was none to maintains Foreign nations did our work for us. England, the lowest tariff nation in, the world is the moat completely- or- ganised and even then -wages are one half what they are in this country under protection. - ' - ; 'WE wage no exterminating war on. American interests" says Grover Cleveland in his letter of acceptance. Workmgmea should be thankful that the war is to stop short of extermina- 7 tion. JOHN *G. WHITTIER JThe Famous Quaker Poet and His Exemplary Life. He Passed Away at the Ripe Age of Eighty-Four as Peacefully as He Had Lived—Incidents in His "£",' .,.«.— Eventful Career. John G. WMttier's latter years had ."been a beautiful ideal of old age. Long ago he laid aside the heavy cares of life -to reap the reward of his labors for mankind, and, beloved of a nation and the-entire English-speaking race, he •waited patiently the summons to his final home. It had been his custom of late years to spend bis summers at Oak KnoU and hjs winters at his home in Amesbury, always among the books he so dearly loved. * His birthplace, near Haverhill, Mass., still stands, only a little altered from what it was in ISO", A farmer's son, born at a time when New England farm life was more frugal than it is nowadays, he had none of the opportunities for culture which Holmes and Lowell enjoyed in their youth. "His parents were intelligent and upright people of limited means, who lived in the simplicity of the Quaker faith, and there was but little in his early surroundings to encourage and develop a literary taste. Whittier's only school instruction was at'a.district school and afterward at the Haverhill academy, where he paid for his tuition by work done out of study hours. Bat he began to rhyme almost as soon as lie was able to read. His father frowned upon his efforts, which for a long- time were kept secret, but his sister had faith in his work and encouraged it. One of his earliest poems, "The Exile's Departure," she sent without his knowledge to the Newburyport Free Press, signing it •with his initial, "TV., Haverhill, June 1, 1820." The publication of this poem led to the acquaintance and friendship of .William Lloyd Garrison, then the JOHJf GKEEIS'LEAJ' WHITTIEB. editor of the paper, a friendship which lasted and increased until death ended it. After this it was not long before Whittier's. household lyrics gave him such a hold on the popular heart as, later, in the struggle for emancipation, made him a power in the land. It is unnecessary to quote from works so familiar to almost every reader,-but sufficient to mention such legends r as "Skipper Ireson's Ride, "The Witch's Daughter," "Mary Garvin, "Memories," "The Playmate" and "Maud MuH'er." Probably the most popular quotation in- poetry is the couplet from "Maud Mul- lerr" For of all sad -words of tongue or pen Tbe siddcstore tHeae: "It mlBhtliavo been." : Despite his advanced years—he was two 'years older than Tennyson and twelve" ivears the senior of Walt Whitman—^he was until recently sturdy and active, and the most charming personality in the world of letters.. His mental powers were keen and acute to the last. He gave but little time of late to literary effort, his eye being dinmaed and his hand unsteady. His latest literary production was a poem in the Atlantic to Dr. Holmes, and the last verse he wrote was on the occasion of Dr. Holmes' recent birthday! Mr. Whittier never married. Between his sister Elizabeth and himself there existed the rarest- and most delicate love and friendship \vhieh, doubtless, had no little to do with the poet's inspirations. His home was broken up at her death and his heart, suffered in the same misfortune its greatest shock. His niece came to V^m at the death of his sister and alvr&yc .«*rove to make that great loss as little felt as possible. Mr. Whittier was. not a rich man, nor was he poor. About fifty or sixty ttJbu- sand copies of his works are sold every year and on the revenues thus derived he was able to pass his declining years in ease and comfort. EARLY NAVIGATION. Ancient Wooden Anchor Tak«n from the Bottom of Green H«Y* One of the many curious e:diibits which, will be shown in the transportation department' of the world's fair, and one which will be of interest to lake captains, will be an old wooden anchoi in use on the lakes one hundred years ago. It is a primitive contrivance, and has been secured for exhibition by Chief Smith through the St»-se Historical society of Wisconsin. .

Architecture;' St. Oswald's church at Aether Peover, Cheshire, is one of the old architectural treasures of England. It is considered the finest example ol ' ecclesiastical black and white architecture extant. It is entirely formed of oak and plaster, and points to a time when oak trees were abundant in a district .where they are now almost extinct It was built, it is said, in 1296. It has a fine open, oak roof and the supporting shafts are •also of ancient oak. This is very rare, indeed, and nearly without a parallel. The pulpit is paneled and has some strange devices on it that are well worth examining. There is at the chancel end NETHER PEOVER CHUKCn, BUILT SIX CENTURIES aco. an oak chest of enormous thickness, and the heavy lid is lifted by an iron ring. -It is said that in former times no damsel was fitted to be the wife of a Cheshire farmer unless she could lift this great cover up with one hand. The chest is almo&t as uniform in its character, but dry rot is setting in in part of it. One of tha oak columns is encircled with two rows of shelves, which are filled with loaves each week in accordance with an old charitable, bequest that entitles certain of the parishioners to have one. The tower, -which is more recent than the church, is well proportioned and contains four bells. There is a fine monument to Sir Geoffrey Shakerley in this church, which recalls a very interesting event in the civil wars. On Chester walls the tower called King Charles' Tower is the place were the king witnessed the battle of Eowton Moor, a combat which had some very weighty consequences. During the battle, as we learn from Pennant, Shakerley was .commissioned to leave the field and carry news of the success of the royalists to Charles, and to shorten his journey he crossed the river Dee in a tub and let his horse swim by his side. He easily reached Chester walls, and saw Charles as he was watching the battle, and offered to carry back the king's commands in a quarter of an hour in the same manner. Charles delayed. Poyntz rallied and the royal cavalry were destroyed, which put an end to his majesty's project of joining Montrose, who iv.as then in force in Scotland. Shakerley's..mural monument of marble is on the north side' of the Holme chapel, .and has a long flowing Latin inscriptib'ir iri : praise of his character and ability.-' • • • MME. CHEUGA-LOEVY., Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U. S. Gov't Report The Talented President of the International Union of Women. The woman's movement is making great strides . in modern France, notwithstanding that a great deal of ridicule is cast upon it. Mme. Cheliga- Loevy, although not a French woman by birth, started the present movement, and she works unceasingly to ameliorate the lot of her poorer sisters under the existing laws and regulations. She Powder ABSOLUTELY PURE snares ail ner ideas, moral, political and social. It was not until after the congress in 1SSO that Mme. Cheliga-Loevy. made up her mind to found the Union Universelle des Femmes, which won the approval of Simon and Eenan. In connection with this .association she started the Bulletin des Femmes, a tiny magazine devoted to all that concerns women's work. She acts as correspondent of a number of foreign periodicals, and has at times -lectured. She claims absolute equality with men, neither more nor less, and is by conviction a socialist. ' Her mode of life makes it almost impossible for her to go much into society, but she is to be met occasionally in literary and political' circles. CHELIGA-I.OEVY. is the president of the Internationa! Union of Women, which has it headquarters in Paris. She lives with her husband, who is an artist, in a flat in the older quarter of Paris. -"_ The only daughter of -;a wealthy Polish nobleman, she learned when a child to speak and write French fluently.

The spe.ar makes the start, knives are used to make the blood flow more freely, and the pump tube is for suction. It is all beautifully adapted to its purpose, as if it was designed for use on human cuticle. —Among the curious things which, doctors see and report was that of a boy aged thirteen who was once addicted to long periods ol sleep. He slept for a m^nth the first time, and at other times slept eighty-eight and twenty- four hours at a stretch. Since then he has been all right, showing, that such an event need not be anything to worry about '•' —A correspondence has been going on in the London Tiroes regarding the origin of the stars and stripes, in which one of the writers says: "The armorial bearings of the Washingtons are: Argent two bars gules, in chief three mullets of the second. Consequently there seems little reason to doubt that the liberator himself designed the flag from the charges in the Washington arms as they appeared on the very seal which he used." ; —Though the late Dr. Francis B. ' Brewer, of Westfield, K. J., was known as the "pioneer of petroleum," because he first conceived the idea of using it < for commercial purposes, the original ' oil refinery was established by Samuel M. Ivies, who set up a small refinery in Pittsburgh in 1853. At first he used a one-barrel still, such -was the small be.; ginning of what is now one of the greatest of industries, but this was afterward enlarged"to a capacity of five barrels, and it is said to be still in existence. —Mrs. Martha Ricks, the negress who came all the way from Liberia to see Queen Victoria, was taken to the Mansion house by the Libeio'an minister and his wife and presented to the • lord mayor of London. The lady mayoress invited her to lunch,- and the old -woman seemed charmed with the hospitality extended to her. As the lord mayor's state coach -was in -waiting to convey him to a civic function, Aunt Martha, at the lord mayor's suggestion, took a short ride in it It was difficult to surmise which was the most pleased —the old lady herself or the amused crowd who watched her. —Richard Beverly, who for $350 a year takes the mail from Buena Vista to Pleasant View in Amherst county, Va., carries it the distance of eighteen miles on his back. Every day except Sunday he walks from Buena Vista to Pleasant View and back, a distance of thirty-six I miles, and Saturdays walks back again 1 to Pleasant View to be with his family i Sunday, that day's walk being fifty-four i miles. He is fifty years of age, six; feet I three inches high, weighs one hundred ! and sixty pounds and is in perfect ! health. He has been carrying the mail for two years and three months. —One of the bridesmaids of an American girl married in London recently gave a forget-me-not luncheon in honor of the prospective bride. _ Forget-me- nots were arranged in the shape of hearts and true lovers' • knots upon the table, and all the decorations were in tie color of the blue flowers.

It is a copy of Stuart's picture of Gen. Washington, and is wrought with fine beads on canvas fifty-two indies long and thirty-nine inches wide. The figure of Washington is thirty-eight inches in height, and Mrs. Kuester has made a very careful study of the coloring of each detail of drapery, clouds, etc. Over five hundred thousand beads' have been used, and the effect is that of a fine painting. Who can present» better record of persevering labor than this? —The cobbler, kit-cutter and amateur bird fancier of Wooster street, New York, is entertaining just now two curiosities in a pair of canary birds left in his charge by an absent friend. The birds occupy a large cage which is provided with a perch, flat on top and quite an inch \s-ide. The perch is of this form because the birds are without claws and toes. They are, indeed, almost without feet One has the rudiments of three toes on one foot and,tho other has two blunt toes, but neither has any sign of talons, and they are quite incapable of grasping any.object in their unformed feet They stand with difficulty even on their broad perch. and fall off with the slightest excitement Both are healthy, well-formed birds and one is an excellent singer. This pair, with two others, were hatched without feet The Journal says "that the Pharos has been trying: to make the voters believe that a 2O cent levy would run the county."
