Secretary Of State-AAKON JONES, ol St. The annual increase in the produc- ion of cereals since I860 has been ouble that during the period of free rade. Between 1810 and 1860 we dded 31,000 persons annually to the Dumber engaged in farming; between 860 and 1SSS the annual addition has been 166,450. In 1S40 Europe .reduced five times as much grain as he United States; in 1887 the United itates produced nearly half as much grain as the whole of Europe. Under >ro!eetion every branch of agriculture prospered and the value of farm- Dg lands has increased in the United States; under free trade the agricul- ural industry of Great Britain has been completely prostrated and the value of agricultural land in that country has declined fully 25 per cent since 1870. The inhabitants of theUnited States; ;onsume on a larger scale than those' of any other people on' the globe. Mulhall in his Dictionary of Statis'-ics says the Americans are the best fed people on the face of the earth. His tables show that they receive the highest wages and that the cost of living is not greater than in other countries. Professor James Bryce says the American masses enjoy lux r , uriea undreamed of by workers in- older countries. With one-twentieth of the world's population the United States consumes 28 per cent of all the sugar produced, 30 per cent of the world's coffee, a third of all the iron, steel, and copper, a quarter:;'of all the cotton and wool and about 40 per cent of all the coal produced ; yy the world's mines. _.„ -r rA - D T7' >iEW YORK EcbSays Tliat Gotliani is Gone Dance Special CorresDondence. NEW YORK, Set. 4. It is rather funny to see the most solemn of New York papers take up the question of stage dancing and discuss its grace, its beauty and the knowledge of dosing possessed by the dancers thereof. Gotham seems suddenly prone dance mad. And the •woman' who'can kick the highest, or who can throw a certain abandon into her style, is the one give^ the greatest approbation. We went through a stage of Carmencita that was painful. In the beginning, when she danced in a spectacular show, she took some trouble, and really did a graceful Spanish dance that was as enticing as it was -artistic; but later, when painters rushed after her, and fashionable .women admired her, she became reckless .and did.a dance that was partly contortion/ lacking in grace and altogether indecent. ~:->j DANCING THAT HAS MEHIT. There'are four dancers in a spectacle- j ^ a S 6 goin 1 to give my money to see tbe American girls what really know how to dance. Look at Annie Pixley! Look at Lottie! Look at all them girls wot did the serpentine dance! And if you are in for forriners, and it's dancin' give me Vanomi! Sae's got some grace about her: she's eot a kind of way that makes all of us boys think 'Hay, hain't you a nice little woman!' But that there Collin's woman! The best thing she can do is to take the ship home to England: the Bowery wouldn't look at her at least only for once. I knows what PHI talkin' about, Jur I goes to see everything, and i says to meself, the first night, says I, 'Miss Lottie Collins, you had better sail for the fair shores of Albiom!' After this swaggered out, and I felt that he had voiced my sentiments, and that no matter what I said, it wouldn't be as much to the point as was the view of this gentleman, who for J a'-number of years had seen everything "aid had decided opinions about what he saw.

WHAT HAS BEEN DONE. The San Francisco Chronicle an exhaustive review of the benefits of a protective tariff in the last, thirty years. The Journal uses some figures below: In 1SSS the product of American manufactures was $7,215,000,000: that of Great Britain, §4,100.000,000 Between i860 and 1SSS the output of our factories increased $5.255,000,000 durin" the same period the British output increased §1,215,000,000. In 1840 the per capita product'of_ th factories 'of ihe United State. was $2G; ia 1S50 it was _ 1860 it was $60, ana m lt>9L •140 Between 1SSO and 1S90 th Manufacturing industry of the United Suites made iw greatest progress; oe iwe-u 1S30 and- 1S90 British manufac tur*. showed a decline in every to Hnc. Manufactures are now WILL EVASIONS WIN? It must be apparent to every thoughtful observer of current discussion that there-IB something radically wrong with the tax legislation of the last legislature. That legislation is generally referred to as "the new tax" law but when it is so referred to the effects of it are denied. This denial when an explanation is forced is based on the fact that the legislature passed a new tax law and at the same time fixed a State levy and that these were separate and not one and the same act. This, of course is evasion. And when it is shown to be evasion and the wording of the .ccusation is so changed as to prevent his evasion by referring to the action if the legislature as "tax legislation" he word "local" is inserted and another denial is made as o the effect of State egislation on "local" taxation. These evasions show that the issue dare not be met on its merits. They ihow also a remarkable confidence in the ignorance o£ those who are within the influence Of the' particular party organ. These organs virtually claim that they have for their supporters men too ignorant to know better and too foolish, to investigate for themselves the truth of any statement. It is to be hoped that the Democratic organ of Cass county cannot again laugh in glee at the way its readers blindly listen to its false teachings. It has done this in the past but it is not probable that it can do so again. There is a limit to all things. THE Journal at last admits that the new tax law does not increase local taxes.—Pharos. Legislatures fix State levies. County Commissioners fix local taxes. The Journal states that taxes are increased by the law passed by the legislature. The Pharos dodges by inserting the word "local." This is a fair sample of the way Cass county Democrats are hoodwinked.. now who really do marvelous work, and.they doit earnestly and enthusiastically .that, the: idea of: its nofcbeing - just rig-fat never seems to enter, your bead. They rush on. two from'each side, and suddenly four feet are'., caught together, and the. four young women are whirling around on one foot, .as if nature had intended them- all for storks. Suddenly they fly away; each' one upholds the uplifted leg as if it ^were.a banjo, and plays a tune on.-it with dainty be-gemmed fingers. Then three of them come down on .two feet; the other keeps up a strumming, and the three for whom she; plays do a lot of pretty steps, while ;[white lace skirts flare around, and ~the_y dance on until apparently they- .seem .exhausted and fall at_the foot of-the ; young woman who is apparently- providing .music for them. After,these eccentrics have departed,. lery and of the stags handg^.tfiey. care more for what they .think than they do .for the entire orcb-estta.'',.'Th'e. s.^ell set do not really decide -whether a play is going to be-a-success"- or- n6t;- if-is the boys, whose ages-range from 20 to 70, who occupy the galleryr : and men who do all the mysterious:tnings,behind the stage, that settle:this.question-r.-.-; You pay $2 for your seat my--friend, ,and the boy up stairs pays'25 cents, : ,buthe is a better critic, and he. .does ,more for or against the play than ., jrau ,.do, although you; think . you .knew so much. It is always the.,voice; of the. people not the voice of., the few, that makes a play a successor failure. .-WOMAN'S NEWEST VNIGHTKOBES. It is somewhat' ifitec'esting for the woman out for her. fall: shopping to be shown pajamas in.:(which; to -sleep. She looks at them .-with .curiosity; the neck and-the wrists are trimmed with would go out to you and my sympathy would show itself in hothouse grapes and orchids. It is always the way, v" you know; when a woman throws aside 6 ! the feminine trappings she is very apt to lose the sympathy given . her by everybody, for women somehow rebel against this assumption of what really isn't a woman. THE LATEST IN STOCKINGS. The funniest thing that has appeared in the shops is the green stocking; of course, there are two of them; and they are intended to be worn, not in the evening with a green dress—oh, dear DO!—but in '.he daytime, with patent leather shoes! /The effect of the black apd green is rather good, but just who started this fad, and why it has taken, is something that no man can find out. One or two young women, desiring to .be odd, have clothed their nether limbs in brilliant Scotch plaid affairs, and the Stewarts and the McGregors were never more proud than are these gay lasses. A young woman in a^shop, who presides over the stocking department, told me confidentially that these queer effects were chosen that the ankle mif ht look more slender and the upper part—you know what I mean—larger. She had been studying human nature, and she saw that it was the women who she was sure weren't good in shape as to lower limb:- who invariably chose the queer stockings, and that the ones who were PLCK'^REPORT iS: NCfG-OOD PECKllSJIOC-OOp 1 WAS'NO GOOD" WHEN ! all sorts of things, and just as certain as you are living and breathing and know a man, he will beg your small safety pins from, you to fasten his tie down at the back or the tab of his shirt in front. I regard there as a great invention; that is, when they really live up to their reputations and are safe. Sometimes they are not, and then you realize how volubly you can speak two languages—English and profane. In the way of exciting evil thoughts and words, the safety pin and collar button are oa-a par, though, as I have a greater knowledge of the safety pin, I can speak more positively of its capabilities in the way of arousing feminine wrath and starting the feminine tongue. Still, what can we do without them? L.ITTLE THINGS WE ALL NEED. There are so many things we can't do without. If the day is dark and dreary, you , can't very well do without somebody wbo is chirpy and will brace you up. If the day is bright and cheerful, you can't very well do without somebody to discuss it with. If you have got a new frock, you can't very well dispense without somebody masculine to admire it and feminine to envy it. If you have got a new bonnet, you caa't very well do without a good mirror by which to put ^it on. in the most fetching position. If you have got a new cook you can't very well do without somebody to teach her your ways. If you have got a cold bottle, you can't very well do without a good corkscrew to open it. If you have got four of a kind, you can't very well do without somebody to bet against you. It you have got a new sweetheart— but there, you don't want • a new sweetheart; you want the old one—the one who knows your little' queerriesses • and forgives them; who knows your virtues and admires you and tells you so', and who doea not have to be trained to any little funny way that you have got.

THE People's party voters should vote the Republican ticket this fall. Until fair elections are secured in the South there should be 'no division in the ranks of the loyal men in tbe North. THE elections in Georgia ana Florida show that Democrats in the South are still Democrats. The People's nurty did not make much of a showing.

This is clever and funny, and both of these are far beyond any of the Carmencita or "Boom-de-ay" people. THE LOTTIE COLLINS CRAZE. Speaking of the last suggest the parson who claims to be the originator of the ••Ta'-ra-ra," and who vulgarly enough calls herself "Miss Lottie Collins." Miss Lottie Collins would at first glance be entered on the stud hookas •-aged." It is asserted that she has no backbone: bossible that is achieved when one passes 4.0. Unlike most women on the stage, she does not add to her appearance by her makeup, for she wears a long yellow wig, arranged in corkscrew curls, suggestive of nothing- else but the stifTwooden dolls of one's childhood. A GAiLEHY &OD's ESTIMATE. The best criticism I have beard of her was'given to me by a gallery boy of long experience, whom I sought for an opinion. Said he, "It is an outrage*.'' (He prefaced this with a word beginning with a large D and ending with a small one, which I dorft care to use as it may offend some of the editors.) "Ders plenty of American women who could do that dance a hundred times better than she does, and what does she do after ail. She walks around the stage two or three times, bobs her head in between her legs, rears it back, and sings her ver=es; she don't kick, she don't dance: you don't see no pretty Dstticoats on her like you do on Lizzie Daly; and Tin dead tired of it.-She belongs-bn the bowery: Broadway is too good for her, and if she is being paia°?200 a night she's got the softest snap-in this country, and Til be— (here he used that ^ord again), if HI lacs and ribbons, but otherwise., they are duplicates of those displayed in taberdasher's shops. Some .women overwhelmed by bravery,.have bought them; whether they have ever worn them or not I am unable to say. But I for one protest against this inroad on the essentially feminine belonging the night drp.ss. I can't think of anything more unlike a woman than prancing around in pantaloocs and a jacket. There is one thing certain— and this is intended for a, warning for tbe world at large—that the woman who wears them will, in case of fire.be rescued last of all, for the gay and gallant firemen'; concluding she is a boy wUl let her wait.

If you were very ill and I went to see you, I would lose half my sympathy for you, that is, supposing you were a woman, if you wore pajamas: but looking delightfully vreak, all right stuck to the plain colors and the dark ones. She also told me quite confidentially, that they did occasionally put a little filling in some silk stocking intended for evening wear: but that the average American woman was pretty well shaped about the well, you know—and did not require it, - THE USEFUL SAFETY-FIX. She said that there were women who would no more have a wrinkle in their stocking than they would on their faces; and I remember what my grandmother used to say: that is, the woman who had wrinkles in her stockings had wrinkles in her temper.
