There Is a plan on foot in the Players' Club, New York, looking'to the purchase of a bronze bust of John Gilbert a* ''Sir Peter Teazle." It will be bought by subscription. It is life size aad the work of J. S. Hartley. Sir Wilfred Laurier, the Canadian Premier, has receiTed the ffold medal of Che Cobden Club, "in recognition of exceptional and distinguished services hi the cause of the progress of international free exchange." President Faure's villa at Havre Is jituated in a hollow and Is overlooked fcy the boulevard, and large crowds are jvaying half a franc apiece to see the President walking In his garden or seated In his chair on the lawn. Sir Wilfred Laurier, In one of his speeches in England, was frank enough to say that during our civil war the attitude of hotli Great Britain nnd Canada "was worthy of neither." Thi* passage, for some reason, wa.s not cabled over. Paul Dunbar, the negro poet, is being lionized iu London in a moot nattering fashion. The color line is not drawn In English society, and the colored versifier, beiuj,' the latest literary novelty. Is much sought for. His reiiilins* of his own verses have b--:-en highly praised by the press, nor are c'lticisins of the verses themselves less friendly. Three of the most popular wonit>n lecturers—those who give pleasant drawing-room talks—are Mrs. gangster, Miss Repplier and Kate Upson Clarke. These three ladies are all prominent as literary workers, ard iu their lectures have great cliann of manner, combined with a very general knowledge of social and political of the present INDUSTRIAL PROBLEMS. It has recently cost the government 125.000 to count Its vast stores of silver dollars to find a. deficit of $859. A federal injunction has been issued In Tennessee to prevent the collection of a state tax on railways at the rate of one-half of their stock value. The United States senate, by a vole of 34 to 29, urged that the sale of the Kansas Pacific railroad should not be confined on any terms less than the full payment of its debt to the government. Two bills favored by labor unions, known as the Phillip labor commission bill and the Erdman voluntary arbitration bill, have been favorably reported by the house labor committee at Washington, the first named, by the Senate labor committee also. Both ought to be supported by churches and Christiana generally. Labor unions say, "We have In congress no champion, neither a. John Burns nor a Lord Shaftsbury.and we want a non-partisan commission on which some of our own number shall serve, with an equal number of capitalists and others from both houses of congress to study the industrial problems of our day and report a remedy." This is provided for In S. 2253 H. R. 4073. The othtr bill, approved by railway employes and managers as well (S. 122), provides for arbitration to prevent railway strlkftf so far as possible. Que»r Soonm In a War-Time 1,[««plt»l. "I have been reading some stories about wounded men," said a < doctor who was a hospital steward in t!ke war, says the Washington Post, "anil many of them are interesting. One of the strangest cases I saw was at tiie battle of Corinth. It was just after the confederates had made a terrible charge. I began to load up an ambulance with the wounded, takin;? those that seemed to need the most immediate care. The hospital was about half a mile away. Just when I waa about to start the ambulance an orderly sergeant asked me to take him in. I asked him if he was wounded and he said b.9 was. I never saw such a ghastl y face on any man aad after he had s;poken he seemed to lose all consciousness of where he was. We put him tn and started. One man, a large fine-Rooking fellow that I knew well and who had always been quiet and reserved, kept up a constant chattering. He had been shot in the breast. He was aimost hysterical and I could not quiet him. When we reached the hospital hi> caEled out to the surgeon, a very dignified man: 'Hello, doc! We licked 'emi! Gee whiz! but we made them fly.' He kept that up until they had him under chloroform, when they found that a bullet had gone clean through his body. The doctors had no hope of his recovery. But my greatest surprise was,when I went to take out the orderly «ergieant. He was dead. We examined his body and found that he had only a s'.llght flesh wound in the thigh. It had .bled very little and the surgeons did not think he died from heart disease. But there it was—a man with a flesh woiund dead and a man with a bullet hole clean through him alive and chattering like an excited school girl." InanntrTal 5alcld» "It is but natural," says the casual observer ot human happenings, "that an employer should profit by the cheapest labor." Yes? Is the casual observer gure that it is "but natural?" A Student of economy would find but little difficulty in demonstrating even to the casual observer, that cheap labor In the United States is a destroyer of profits of employers. Upon, whom does the American manufacturer depend for his sales, and, therefore, his profits? Is it the cheap 'laborers or the well paid laborers of this country— or of any country, for that matter— that consume the products of the manufacturer? Does it profit a mine 6wner when he can employ miners at starvation wages? When wages have sunk so low that the working people must of necessity subsist on half of what they were once accustomed to consume is it profitable to the farmer who supplies the food of the nation? A reduction of 25 per cent in wages In any community means that the working people of that community must expend for the necessities of life 85 per cent less; It means that the merchant's business, and therefore his profits, decrease one-fourth; that the «onsumption by that community of the products of the manufacturers and farmers of the country has decreased in like proportion. "What profit is it to the employers of the United States that wages be reduced one-half? Why, that they may sell their products in China cheaper than the Chinese can make them. In the end such a course would establish Chinese conditions IP the United States. Shall the employers be permitted to assassinate the prosperity of their own land by such a suicidal policyT — Locomotive Firemen's Magazine. GERMAN CYCLIST CLEVER. i t«uton Had a Simple Way to Elde Down ] A Steep Cliff. I "We Americans traveling abroad are apt to be very proud of our reputation . for cleverness," said a tourist who went cycling in Europe last summer. "And no doubt we have reason to be. But I am going to tell you how I had lome of the conceit taken out of me. We were going through Switzerland and had reached the close of'the first day's descent toward Geneva. The road had been too steep to coast without the Hid of a brake, and, as we were afraid to use our brakes for fear our tires would not last us through our trip, we back-pedaled all the way. As we were lilting after supper on the veranda of the lodge discussing the fatigue of our unusual exercise and dreading the morrow, which meant more of the same sort, our attention was suddenly called to a cloud of dust descending the mountain side. Then we saw a cyclist, toasting as nice as you please, towing a good sized sapling, which acted as an affective brake, without injury to the tires. One of the boys ejaculated: "Well! Why didn't we think of that?' The rest were simply dumb. That man was a German. I now take off my bat to our German brethren of the wh*«l." She Couldn't Gne&a Vfh»t It Mrs. Maundaley — Do yo«r dausJxt« and her husband live happfly 1 together? Mrs. Oldham — Alas, Fm afraid not. My daughter says they do, but every Urns I go to visit them there seems to b« something present to mar the serenity oi their Lives. A pavilion to cost J450.900 will b« built at the Paris exposition for a reception hall to be at the service of the Emperor and Empress of Russia during their visit in 1900. The coming Paris show will be the frtatest of the Kvropeu iBtenaUon Effect at X Ray« on Fl»nt». Very interesting experiments have recently been made at Cornell university by Professor Atkinson on the effect of X-rays on growing plants and seedlings. So much has been said of the injurious effect of these rays on the human body when erposed to them for photographic purposes, that Professor Atkinson was prepared to see his plants seriously injured in the experiments; but the results showed that even delicate seedlings, after an ex,- posure to the rays of many hours, were entirely unharmed. Sensitive plants like mimosa, exhibited the same indifference. Among the photographs showing the interior structure of the plants were pictures of seeds of hickory-nuts, almonds and peanuts taken through the unbroken shells, and of peas and beane still enclosed within the pods. PERSONALITIES. A French paper says that only academician, Jules Lemaire, rides <a wheel. Frederick S. Jarvis, who recently resigned the inspectorship of Scotland yard, is said to be the original of Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes. The estate of the late Sig. NlcolJml amounted to J100/KK), which he do- vised to his widow, Adelina Patti, and to three children of his first marriage. Mme. Patti, however, has renounced her claims on the estate. In Madrid the popularity of a prominent personage is often gauged by the extent to which his portraits sell, and the government was mystified not lonp ago at the remarkable sale of Gen. Weyler's counterfeit presentment. The .mystery has been explained, however, by an ingenious official who procured one of the pictures, and, on applying a wet sponge to the surface, found that I the colors and features quickly disap- ' peared and in their place were seen the heavy head, full beard and piercing eyes of Don Carlos, the Spanish pretender. . Immediately after the death of Victor Emmanuel the inhabitants of Turin decided to set up a statue in memory of him, and a commission for the execution of the work was given an eminent sculptor. For twenty yeara the statue has been awaited, and although the sculptor is nearing his 80th birthday, he works on calmly at what will be at once a memorial and an antiquity when finished. The town council of Turin, however, it is said, is going to issue an ultimatum concerning the date on which the effigy of Victor Emmanuel is to be delivered. Tour Own Experience.— 'Begin Un business of raising finely bred poultry on a moderate scale and acquire your own experience. The experience oj others may be made worth much to you, but not as much as your own. It is not necessary for the farmer to become a poultry fancier in order to make his poultry profitable, and he will not have time to make fancy breeding profitable xmless he abandons to a considerabla extent the other farm industries'. But he can greatly improve his poultry department and ax it securely on a paying basis by using males ot some judiciously selected •tandard breed, and it will not be • bad plan to have a few pure bred hens of the same breed as the cock. By taking the right kind of care of t'hes* be can sell enough of the young cock- rels to pay a considerable part of ths expense of improving his flock, and the improvement of the general flock in the first cross will bring a vary handsome profit. — Ex. PURITY. The great reform event of the year is the withdrawal, by Lady Somerset, of her letter, giving semi-indorsement to licensed vice. The writer finds public sentiment everywhere he goes ready to be led to easy victory against police gazettes, nasty bill boards and nastier theaters, which are leprosy factories, operating, In most cases, without restraint or protest. In York, Pa., police gazettes were driven out by one day's attack. In Hartford a movement was organized to clean the bill boards. The Indiana Fair Association has decided to exclude immoral exhibitions from the fairs of that state, but not the beer selling and race gambling.

The bride holds it in her hand throughout the marriage ceremony, using 'it to wipe away her tears. As soon as th» marriage festivities are over the young wife lays the handkerchief aside in her linen closet, and there it remains as long as she lives. Nothing would induce a Tyrolese wife to use this sacred handkerchief. It may be half a century or longer before it Is taken froa its'plac* to fulfill the second and list part of its mission.

The man who breaks in the wild, vicious bronchos on the west- em plains must hare superb physical endurance, nerves of steel, unconquerable [v i tn, determination and persistency. The city or town bred msn who has all his life humped his back over a desk, living an unhealthy, sedentary life and felled to take any care of hi? health, could not stay on the back of one of these vicious brutes for more than three jumps. It takes a whole man to conquer a vicious animal. People may talk about intellectual superiority and refinement and good breeding:, but every man takes off his hat to physical strength and endurance. While; the man who leads a sedentary life cannot hope, in this respect, to rival these sturdy- men of tbe plains, they can be sound, vigorous, healthy men if they will. It is a matter of care of health while one has it; and the proper measures to restore it when it is lost. Most diseases begin with some trouble of the digestive organs or of the liver. Troubles of this nature starve th« body, because thev prevent it from receiving its proper supply of nourishment.
