THE Kansas R-pubilcan legislative caucus has selected Luciea Baker, iv tnember of the Stale Senate and & prominent lawyer of Laavenworth, for the United State Senate. He is a brother of Judge John H. Baker of the United States court at Indianapolis. THE old confederate brigadiers ha»e been relegated to the rear in South Carolina and "joungr blood" la in command. The new Governor of that State is only 31, the Adjutant General 24, and the Attorney General Among 1 the most interesting obserra,- tions of Mars during 1 the recent opposition were those relating to the gradual disappearance of the K-JOW cap surrounding its southern polo. The disappearance was due. of course, to the fact that it was summer in the southern hemisphere of Mars, and the polar snows melted more and more rapidly as the sun rose higher upon them. Vet, although the reason was plain, and bo- cause it was plain, one could not watch the process without experiencing a strange feeling 1 that amounted almost to awe. It is quite easy, says tbe Scientiilc: American, to think dispassionately of tho possibility that some things may go on in other worlds just as they do in this one. as long as your eyes have not confirmed what is in -your mind; but when pouring through a telescope you actually behold such occurrences, the effect is startling. It is like coming suddenly iu broad daylight upon the scenery of a dream. On June 1 the snow around the south pole of Mars was 3,400 miles across. A snow cup of proportionate dimensions on the earth ivould, in the northern hemisphere, extend as far south as St. Petersburg 1 , the southern point-of Greenland and Mount St. Elias in Alaska. Uy July I the di- uneteroC the snowy area had dirain- sliod to about l,noo miles. On August 1 it was only 1,100 miles and ou Ar.g-ust 11, the (lute of tho summer solsv.iw in .he .southern hemisphere of Mars, tho now c:ii) was but 000 miles across.' Hut icat acjiiinuh-.U-s in a Martian summer ftvr l hi- -snn has liejrun to dec-line, jiihi is it ilncs uj:nn t he- eai'tli, am! mjcord- n;;-iy ilii. 1 iiH-ltiiiir of tho siur.v.-i miitiu- lod :ii'U-i" tho solstice ',vas p:i.s:,e;l. At he end of September 'Ju- diameter ul' lie siKAv-emvivd region wasoJii.v about 50 miles, uml ill til-- 1 open ing of Nove::i- er it was less than 200 miles. Now eoiiios n eurions fact. About the ikUlli; oi October it was ropoi'U'U that he polar snow cap of Mars had vanished; some of the most powerful telescopes failed to reveal a trace of it! Yet it is not probable that it had actually entirely disappeared. The explanation of the apparent disappearance is no doubt to be found in the fact that as the snow area, diminished it left the pole uncovered by receding 1 to ono side, for previous observations have shown that on Mars, as on tho earth, what may be called the "po^e of cold" does not correspond in location with tho pole of the planet's axis. Kchiaparelli's observations in IS77 and 1870 showed that the center of the snow cap during its minimum in those years was displaced toward tfiat side of the polo corresponding 1 to a.n arcographie longitude of about. 40 degrees. With the other side of the planet turned toward the earth the snow cap would have been invisible, being, so to to speak, hidden behind the pole. This is apparently just what occurred in the middle of October last. The south pole was then free from ice. and the center of the snowy region "'as displaced, as in 1S77 and 1.87P, tilonff tho meridian of -1-0 degrees. But it was on the other side of tho planet which was at that time presented toward the earth during the best hours for obscr- •jition, and consequently no polar snow was seen; not because it had no existence, but because it was concealed. It is probable, however, that at its minimum the snow cap was exceedingly small, perhaps less than one hundred miles in diameter. JTo such rapid and and extensive disappearance of snow and ice ever occurs upon the earth, although the advocates of an open polar sea may find encouragement in the fact that the uncovered south pole of Mars corresponds in color and general appearance with what arc believed to be the water areas of that planet, while what remains of the snow cap in such circumstances rests apparently upon a mass of land, perhaps no more than an island risinfr o\it of the polar ocean. Owing- to the larger eccentricity of its orbit, the extremes of temperature on Mars ere greater than upoa the earth, although the total amount of the solar icat received by the planet is less than lalf as much us we get. But inore important than these differences is tho •arity of Mars' atmosphere, which has seen so clearly demonstrated by the recent spectroscopic observations of . Campbell. It may'not be scien- 12c, but it is certainly human to ask vhcthcr it is probable that human beings resembling 1 ourselves were included in the field of view of our telescopes ast autumn, while we watched the >outhern snows of Mars sparkling to the sun and melting away at his ardent ouch. If such beings are there they must exist in an atmosphere less than as extensive as the earth's. sovo: 1 ','.!

A Hc;ivy Increase of Uio n,-put)l!cun To- The total vote of the United States at the congressional elections of 1S94 was 11,203,377. This is a surprisingly large vote, as it is but S-lT.ioO less than the total vote for president in 1892— counting Nevada and Florida in that year and omitting them this. If their total vote approximated the 1S92 vote in the same ratio as the rest of tho country, the falling 1 off iu 1S94 was only about 802,000, This shows the enormous popular interest taken in the 1394 campaign. Tho rule is, that the elections in the middle of a presidential quadrennium show a heavy decline in tbe vote. Although congressmen are to be elected, and legislatures which will have to choose one-third of the senate, the popular interest is not excited to that degree usual in presidential years, and a considerable proportion of the voters ncg- lect to go to the polls. Not only does the total vote thus usually show a heavy decrease, but this decrease is sharad proportionally by the two great parties. So small a fulling-ofl is enougli to snake tho contest of 1S94 memorable in our political history. The total republican vote was 5,5SS,- 32'!, the democratic -1,148.•15'), the populist l,24i;.7f>:2 and the prohibitionist 219,843. As compared with IS!(2, there was an increase of 41.1.124 in the republican , vote, a decrease of L4U^,-I(i2 in tho democratic, an increase of 20."),724 in the populist and a decrease of -14,200 in the prohibitioni.it. | The most salient feature of this is '• the heavy increase of the republican total. Allowing a proper share of the , decrease!, the republican vote is a half- i million greater than in 1S92. This is I deeply significant. The disyust of tho ! working-men and farmers with the in- | capacit3' of the democratic part}', and the demonstrated fallacy of its economic theories, is shown by the tremendous loss of almost a million and a half voters—about one-fourth its total vote in 1802. Where did these voters po? -A portion of them voted with the republicans; that much is plain.' liut where did tho remaining 1 million go? Tho increase in the populist vote is entirely to be attributed to the fact that disgusted democrats voted that ticket. Populism lost heavily in the west, where its whilom followers went back to the republican ranks. This loss war, fully compensated for the accession of democratic voters, and the populist pains also came from that source. This is clear. Populism has lost its power of aggression, and is dying, as the greenback party did, because of the fallacies it upholds.—Toledo liln.de. MIXED THE POETS UP. ' i None Reserved!

One of the latest comes from the high school and is fastened by the Washington Post on a sweet-voiced lisping youth, with an in- ' cipicnt mustache and a furtive glance ' that will wander toward the girls' side of the study hall. They were being ' called up the other day by the English literature teacher and examined as to • tlieir memory of last year's work, and the svrect-voiccd youth was asked for a quotation from Scott. lie started bravely enough, but mixed his authorities before he finished: Oh. woman. In thy hours o! case. Uncertain, coy. add hard to please; Euc seen too ott, famiitor tviih thy face, \\'c tlrut. endure, then pity, ihon embrace. The conclusion was cnr.irely too much for the class, the red-headed corporal from D company exploded in a regular •vacation laugh, the rest of the room, including the teacher, followed suit, and the sweet-voiced youth collapsed, vowing he would never memorize another quotation so long as he lived. House Unearthed ».ir rompoll. A valuable discovery has been nsado at Pianella-Setteimini, near Pompeii, m the property of a certain M. Vin- eut de Prosco. A house has been un- .arthed which was covered at the time he city was buried, and it is said to bo in a more perfect condition than any 3Xetal (ind T^rthraware Soldered. A new electrolytic method of great use to plumbers is the joining of metal to earthenware. The earthenware should have an imglazed surface, but Lf otherwise the glaze is removed and the surface coated with plum- bago and placed in an electrolytic bath, thus obtaining a metallic coating. To this coating the lead pipe can be soldered in the ordinary way by means of a plumber's "•wiped" joint- This process, it is said, will probably supersede the use of rubber sleeves, washers and putty, with which imperfect joints hare often been associated. and rosy and seem to enjoy thoroughly the warm climate in which they fine themselves. Dr. Lion claims that during the three years ha has been perfecting thi machine he has saved three hundrec babies that would otherwise have died and this is eighty percent, of the entire number brought to him. He believes that had these infants been left to the ordinary treatment, not one would have survived. JToncy Value of Hiind* and Fincer, 1 ;. An engineering journal has collected some interesting statistics from the tables of a German miners' insurance company. If a man loses both hands he is registered as entailing a 100 per cent. loss. In other words, he has been deprived of the ability to ivirn a livelihood. The loss of the right hnnd depreciates the value of an individual as a worker TO to SO per cent.., while the loss of the left hand leaves him v.ith only CO to 70 per ccut. of his origins! earning capacity. The thumb is taken as plying a part equal to 20 to 30 per cent, a-s a. bread winner; the first finger of the right hand is put aV 14 to 18 per cent., aad of the left hand at from S to 13.5 per cent, and the middle finger of cither hand is worth from 10 to 10 per cent. The value of the third fizger is put down as from 7 to 0 per cent., while that of the little finger is estimated at 0 to 12 per cent. These .values may appear arbitrary, but it is explained that the apparent inconsistency in the rating is occasioned by the difference in the trades followed by the injured ones, •• —Xh'e Atchalafaya river, in Louisiana, was so named from two Indian vroris, meaning 1 Lonj* river.
