Men who transact, the country's business should be prep/ired to I'ac-e conditions.

All the diversified arts and industries arc represented in the endorsement' the people give reciprocity. It is clear the repeal of the reciprocity treaties was not a response to a popular demand. The revoking of the'treaties that meant so much to American outer- prise was consistent with the Democratic course of opposition to everything ot Republican origination. It was 'inconsistent, however, with the_ talk .of opening foreign markets to Americans, •with which Democratic speakers round- ed'out stump speeches.' The system inaugurated by Republicans, Is the-only one by which foreign markets may bo secured for home producers, without sacrificing homo industries. One loss that results from the revoking of the treaties of the .McKtnlcy law, is the flour export trade to countries South of us, amounting to M0,000,000 yearly.

A recent number of the- New Bulletin (English) contains some particulars pf a vcr.y interesting' problem, whithsome yen.™ ng-o wivsisubmitted by the treasury to lih-S Kcw u.ut-horily. ' The question -\vas: Does natural sugar occur m tobacco? a-mil in the hivestijra- tl'On of this point some Etrikiuig facts Lave been broug-ht to 1 ig-ht. The treasury authorities wore, of cowse, cliiefly mterestc.d from' a fiscal point of view, the duty on tobu'ccxo (otJbwthimcig'O.rs) being- Is Cd, except in tliecase of "sweetened" tobacco, which is charged a.t. •Is l(Kl, but cignrc-ttre made of the sweetened article are nor allowed to be imported &t all:- Before, this investigation it was g'tMiernJly admitted that tobacco did.not contain more than a trace of saccharine matter. On the advice of Prof. Church, Dr. Hugo Miller was called in, thu latter making a thorough exainiiia-tion of-the question. Cojnmuruin.1 sarop!e» ol bright Virginia tobacco, undoubtedly free from luHilterution, wero found to conta-iji as much ns 15.2 per cent, of saccharine matter. Sun-dried leaves of nieotinmi t,a.bacum, grown at Ko\v, contained 0.2 per cent., 'and those of tho saiiie species'grown at Ewell railway station a« imich as 0 per cent. Dr. 'Miller finds the. sacchnrino matter to be. optically inactive when tested by the polariscope. He is of th". opinion tliu.t neither Cane Sfljya.r HOT g-lucofiC-is-pres- ent in the. sacahajrinc matter, but that it is composed of lit least three sugar-like substances, probably hitherto un- luiown.

While a party oi yonug 1 women fvora thu jiorm.'il school were ilcJvinjf nboni the rocks ;nul dense iinderg-rowtli on Bontecoe poiDt the other d;iy in search of arbutus, they were surprised to sue what they at first supposed v.'iis u. l.arg-c football. As it approached they been nie too badly frightened to stir, seemingly having: lost tho pov.-cr to ttcp, for what they now taw was a compact mass of snakes wound tightly nbout each other, with their heads outward, tongues darting out nnd bissingf like small steam cn- yincs. The snakes had approached witliin a few rods when, fortunately a stone upon which one oi the young womeu v.-as standing, slipped from under her foot and she fell, tn falling- her eyes were for nn instant removed from the approaching- 1 suakes. The spell was broken and she uttered a loud shriek and 'ran away,' while her companions still continued to gaze in silence and un:ible to etlr hand or foot at, the approaching venomous reptiles that had evidently charmed them, r.s a cut docs a. bird. In her flight for-safcty, the girl almost--ran against a cabin occupied by a hardy charcoal burner and his family, to whom she excitedly explained the situation. The man of tho. house seized his shotgun nnd ran to the rescue. When he came in sight of the girls they were still standing like statues, not a muscle" moving, every eye fixed on the spproach- ing ball of snakes, now less than a rod disiunt and beginning to unroll themselves. Taking- hasty aim, before they had time to sentUT or spring nt thdir intended prey, the man letpo both barrels of his gun.- A number of the rattlers skurricd. away into crevices in the rocks and some more wounded and helpless were soon dispatched with blows from the butt of the gun. Then attention was directed to seven imperilled young women, each one of whom, as soon ns released from the spell of the snakes, br.d, nftcr uttering one ear-piercing shriek that was heard in the village, nearly a mile nway, fallen unconscious. , , Vigorous chafing soon brought tlicm back to consciousness, although it was several hours before strength returned sufficiently to permit them to return home. Eighteen dead snakes were counted on the field of battle, though none was of large size. CALL ON ST. ISIDRO. Impofflng Itellgtous Ceremony »t Madrid to Bring About Clone or Cuban War. Mjldrld was the scene the. other day of an imposing religious ceremony, the object of which was to procure the ln- tcreereion of St. Isidro, tie patron saint of Mac rid, who lived in the 13th century, to bring about tlie cud of the long drought that has done great daroape throughout the country 'and also to effect the suppression of the Cuban rebellion. Tlve remains of tho saint, in- closed In a silver casket, were carried through, tho streets, escorted by 800" priests, thousands of members of religious congregations and tbe civil Mid. military officials. All carried lighted tapers, and the scene was most impressive, even to those who had no faJth in the efficacy, of the ceremony. There were u great number of choristers who chanted litanies us the procession moved slowly Uirougli the principal streets of the capital. The route was lined with thousands of people who knelt as the remains of tbe saint were borne past them. The houses wero decorated in honor of the occasion,,and an enormous quantity of flowers were thrown from tie balconies into tho path, of the procession. NotJiing 1 similar to the ceremony has been seen in Madrid since the 17tU century. Services were held for nine days In. the cathedral, the. object being the same as that of the procession. The queen regent and other members of the royal family and tlie ministers attended. Similar functions have been or will be held in all the towns of the conn- try. and" inarch,'around Uic temple of Apollo at midnight, smgiug the "Dc Profur.-' OJs." At hist they wore captured, two of them being afterward hanged. COLOR OF WOMEN'S EYES. Tho M"crfi Question of Pigment I!a» Settled Many a Man')* Fate. Did you ever notice that men. always instinctively put confidence in a girl with bine eyes, and have their suspicions of the girl with brilliant black ones, on-d will you kindly tell me why? asks a writer in the Ladies'Home Journal. Is it that the- limpid blue eye^ transparent and gentle, suggests all the soft, womanly virtues, aaid because he thinks he can see through it, clear dow.n ir.lo tliat blue-eyed girl's sou], that she is the kind of a girl he fa.ncies Blic is? I think it. is, but some of the greatest little frauds I know are the purry, kitteiiy p-irls with the big innocent blna eyes. J-',i::y.ing blade eyes, and tbe rich, warm colors, which dark- skinned women have ta wear suggest euerjry and brilliance and no end of intellect. Men look into such eyes and seem not lo be able to see lx>)ow the surface. They have not the pleasure of a long, deep gaze- into immeasurable depths. And so they think her designing and clever, and, perhaps (God save the r.rork!';. even intellectual, when, perhaps, she has a wealth of love and devotion, ar.d heroism stored up behind that impulsive, disposition and those daz/.liug blnck eyes, which would do nnd daremorcin a minute Tor some man she had set. that great heart of hers upon, than your cold-blooded, tranquil blond would do in 40 years, A mere question o£ pigment in the eye has settled ma.ny a man's fate in life, and es- tablished.him v.-ith a wife who turned out to be very different from the girl he fondly thought he was getting. INDIANS WANT SILVER. They Have >'o Esc for Gold Coin or Paper JHonoy. If tlie silver question were left to the Sioux Indians to be decided, says the Stoux Tails Argus-Leader, they would speedily decide it .in a manner that would i>rc-ve perfectly satisfactory to the advocates of free silver coinage. The Sioux arc naturally in favor of free silver coinage, principally because silver, is more easily counted by them than any other kind of money. White Ghost, the venerable head of the Crow Creek Sioux, in discussing the money question while in town recently, advanced some peculiar ideas regarding money, which are undoubtedly shared by practically every member of tho Sioux nation. 'He says that when, the" government pays the people on his reservation -the $108,000 due to them, he wants it paid in, silver dollars. Gold is detested by the Indians because the- coins arc so small when the sum they represent, is token into consideration. White Ghost said he could not understand why a ten-dollar bill sliould not be just ten times as large as acne-dollar bill. He thinks tte govenimentshould increase the size of bills in proportion to tlie sum they represent, even if it was necessary that a SiOO bill should bo as largo as a horse blanket. If the- government- persists in. paying^ Oienv partly in' bills, they-would like to see tlie change -made. But silver dollars ore what the Indians want, even sho»hl they receive ttiem; in such quantities tfcat they wouicl have to be transported to their agencies in wagons. Bumoans Are I.MT. .

The Villa Garin de'Coconato at Cimie2\ in the gardens of which Queen Victoria walks, and drives for recreation, was. believed to be haunted in the beginning of the century. The ghosts were coiners, who, to frighten tenants away, used to dress .themselyes in white jrarriieiits Peter's Thumb Mark.
