Gov't Report Baking Powder AttSQEAJTEIV PURE GROPING IN THE DARK. The PniBOnt State of tho Nar.Inri'u Finaa- rln.1 Affair*. It isa blessing to wen.1: human nature that it has nut to bear the heavy handicap of foreknou'ledfre. If the losses and disasters of 1S03 could have 'wjn foreseen, how frightfully the sui'V .••.•'..']£ would have been increased. li L!IC slow and painful half-recovery o!' !:-9-l had been foreseen in all its weu"j'i"T details, multitudes of business coiiii would linvo refused to face all the risks of the yeur with tlie certainty of such scanty profits. A beneficent darkness hid from us the outcome, anil eternal hope spurred men to employ many thousand hands during 1 part of the yea;- -vith little gain to themselves. No one can know what the new year may have in store. The most careful and sagacious estimates in such revolutionary times as those arc apt to wander far fi-orn the truth. The root of trouble and of doubt is that, tho situation is in the strictest sense revolutionary. The old order changes. Tliirty- thrce years of steady and unflinching- protection for home industries and 01 6tout-beartr>d maintenance of l.hc national credit end in a reversal so complete that no one can g-ucss how far it may go. In general, we know that something- like a quarter of the nation's industry is unemployed at this time, rind that its treasury has forfeited the confidence of the ablest oankers and money lenders by urg-in upon congress a policy which, if not one of unmistakable bad faith, was at least eminently calculated to render hostile those whose trust a borrowing- nation has need to cultivate. So the year ISO") begins with the nation's credit lower than it has been at any other time for many years, and with a greater part of its industry unemployed than at any time in the thir t-y-two yours JSGO-'Jl! inclusive. J.'Yom such a state of depression, nude:' the natural lav.' of reaction, somo recovi-.ry might with reason bo expected, and thu pcon'.u have dorm their bust to assist rccuvory liy t'.iuir verdict nysiiihl further prosecution of the revolutionary policy. Hut no one can kuow how far the eimt.innei'l agitation durin;; 1 tin: present si-ssion of congress may undermine business or how far the now duties on woolens ir.uy embarrass those American works that are still in operation, ur how far the distrust, of tho govern me ill's financial policy may drive gold abroad. We are all in the dark, and probably it is a blessing that the future cannot bo accurately foreseen'. At the foundation of all our industries is apiculture, and its prospects for the coming yo:ir are not entirely cheering-. \Vitli fifty-cent wheat and five cent cotton production of those great, staples would naturally be much reduced, provided there were afforded other satisfactory employment for farm labor. But prices ol" meats, of vcg-ctablcs and the .ninor grains, of wool and tobacco, are not such as to encourage a large, expansion of growth. The farm is a machine which can only be made profitable by raising something to sell, and the American farmer, ever since the decision to change the national policy in 1802, has bcun confronting the least remunerative prices ever known in this country. Then follows the inevitable consequence, which so many statesmen overlook, that the interdependence of industries necessarily denies prosperity to the manufacturing producers when half tho people, directly dependent upon agriculture, are forced to restrict their ptirehases. The picture would not be true to life if it were not, somewhat somber. \Vt it docs not alter the fact that the incalculable recuperative power and practical good sense of the American people form, after all, their greatest resource in every emergency. Men talk of unrivaled natural gifts as if these wcro enough to insure prosperity for a nation of dolts. It is not necessary to go so far. Two years have shown what a botch a nation of democrats could make of the wonderful resources which, only two years ago, made this the wonder-workincr nation of the world. Sad and hard experience las brought light.to many. The people have started distinctly and reso- utely upon a more rational policy. In what form and how soon it will find expression, how long-industries and trade nay languish in doubt, cannot be predicted. But the man who knows the temper of this groat nation has a deep conviction that millions of Americans vill not long suffer their prosperity to stolen from them by the dominance of hostile foreign theories, and will, .nd a way to make their will felt and obeyed even by the present adminis- ration. The millions know, if the inie-ser-ving- politicians do not, that they can get full and fair employment or all their labor, and a prosperity greater than has ever blessed any other and, by returning- to the national pol- cy which they enjoyed in 1S02. It is or the good people themselves to find a way to make their wishes heeded. — , Y. Tribune.

' In England the er:rJ2 of dov.njy is called "nobbling," and was much p:-ac- ticcd in the early part of the pro.wat century. In the year JS.'.'j Dan Da-.lson was caught at, tha nefarious practice in that country, was condemned to death and executed. The most celebrated case of recent years w:is the closinnr oi Orrae, the favorite for the English Derby of 13'.):.'. The horse was given a drug 1 a short time prior to the great event by some unknown miscreant, and liisowu'or, the Duke of Westminster, was compelled to scratch him. thus throwing thousands .of pounds into the bookmakers' coffers. A large reward was offered for the apprehension of the offender, but no trace of him was ever found. Great excitement was caused in the country at tho time by the poisoning of the great race horse Wagner, ai Nashville, Tenn., when ho suffered defeat from the gray mare Gamma, not as good a race mare by many pounds as Wagner. At St. Louis in the summer of 1SS2 Ed Corrigan's great son of Longfellow, Preeland, was poisoned in a most fiendish manner. A hole was punctured in one of his legs and the deadly drug inserted therein. This threw him out of training, and he ran no mone that season; but he recovered and was a fine three-year-old, and practically unbeatable as a four-year-old. Another case the details of which were similar, was tho poisoning- of the great filly Cipsetta, belonging toT. J. Megib- ben, the well-known Kentucky distiller. She was treated in the same manner at Chicago shortly after the Freeland case. She had beaten all tho best fillies in the south and was a hot favorite for the Isdies' stake, but on the night before the raee a fiend in human form by some means gained access to the stable and she met the fate of Freeland, only with much more serious results, as the splendid filly died in awful agony on the day the stake was run. Miss Woodford, who became the queen of the turf, won the event easily, it being her first start in public. But of late years, as in every other science and profession, horsemen have grown wise, and less dangerous drugs and methods are used that answer as well and leave no ill effects on the. animal. One very ingenious method that has been used is to insert small silk Sponges in the nostrils oC the horse. After running well for some distance his breathinq-becomes labored and, in the languag-o of the swipes, he will "cough" it up." Another "stopping" drug that is used is ether. It is said that two or three drops of this on a lump of sugar given to a horse will make him think he has passed the wire when about three-quarters of the distance has been traversed, and he will slow up despite all urging on the jockey's part. But, unless well cooled oil after the race, this is apt to have an injurious eifect on the animal. A good bran mash, with a liberal supply of salt in it, is a pretty sure guarantee that tho bookmakers will not be troubled with paying off many tickets ou that. horse. A very clever trick was once worked at the Bay District track by some parties that owned a very fast sprinter. A piece of gtii was tied tightly around one of the animal's legs. Slu: was then taken out and warmed up through the stretch, and of course pulled up "dead lame," This report soon spread around the ring and the horse from favorite ira- nediately became a long price in the betting. The owners then played their money, the piec'. 1 of gut was removed and soon after the race they had plenty o£ money. At the last Jockey club meetingVne horse Alto Mio was said to have been run in a race shod with lead shoes, and finished in the rear of his field. But this became noised about and he was never cut loose for the intended killing. At another meeting a horse was started with shotted boots and was supposed to be a "dead one." The owner and his friends on the inside then proceeded to play another liorse in the raee. but the "dead one,'' jetting oil in front, ran like o wild norse and was never headed. But the method most in vogue when an owner figures that his horse will be 'avorite at a short price i= to run them 'short," and Ls entirely harmless in its . after effects. For instance, if the race .s over a distance of one mile the hor.se will be worked three quarters, and after that distance has been run in the race he will "blow up" and finish with the also rans. These are but a few of the many tricks that can be resorted to by crooked horsemen to fool judges and public: but the best proof that honesty is the best policy is in the fact that verr few of the horsemen who resort to the methods above referred to crer have any money. They generally get to the end of Aeir rope with one lonely plu# as a sorrowful reminder of the days when Bill and me used to jjet the stuS."—San Francisco CalL Struck »n Indian Mound, Ed Byers, of Rocheport, Mo., dug a collar for his house in a mound.

PAWNSHOPS IN BAVARIA. How They Wore Conducted Soveii Hundred Yv»rn ABO. There nrc records of a pawnshop reg-ulated iu the interest of the borrowers in Bavaria in U9S, and one in the Franehe Couipte in ISM, before the first Italian mont dc piote \v;is established by a priest of 1'erug-ia in 1-NO, says the Contemporary Review. The movement for state regulated pawnshops received its great, impetus from the ;iction of tlKLt statesin:iu-likii anJ social democrat, Savonarola, who liberated the Florentines from oppression and fj-uvc them popular institutions. In no otlier directiou were his services to the people more successful than in founding- mont de pictc. The law for creating- his mont de pietc was passed in H'J5, and before many years they were established in all the principal towns in Italy uud had spread throughout Europe. The first, mont de piete in If ran ce was starved at Avignon in lf>77 and still exists. Their establishment in the Netherlands dates from the sixteenth century. A Spanish priest, Doi Francisco Piquer, founded the mont di piete of Madrid in 170"), starting will the modest capital of five pence, whicl he found in the offertory box he had placed in the church to receive contri butions for the institution. By the nd of the seventeenth century then were inonts de piete, formed more o less after the Italian model, in^ most lountries of Europe. The character istics of the original institutions remain with those of to-day, althoufrl tney have long- siuce ceased to be man £cd by the priests or t,o be under the ifluencc of the churches. The main object, which Savouarola and other •arly founders had in view—the protec- jon'of the poor from usurers and their •elief in periods oi distress—is still maintained, and the monts de pietc ia ill Latin countries are associated with iharitable institutions and hospitals.— Contemporary Review.

It s called tie Vandyke jacket.. A pointed collarette and revers of the sealskin rim the bodice part, and there is a )ic;h "storm'' collar. The sleeves, exceedingly full at the top. are almost close-filling- below the elbow. Unless jnc can afford to purchase a new seal :oat every second or third winter, it is unwise to choose a shape that cannot ail to date the coat, for the fashion of outdoor covering's changes only a little ess often than does the fashion of our "•owns. Nothing just, now looks more stylish than one ot the shoulder-capes of fur, lined with moire or g-ay brocade. Even velvet handsomely lined and bordered or not with fur. looks reallv more dressy than a fur dolman or other old-style hic-h-sliouldcrcd wrap, thoug-h the'same for wrap represents a SHM11 fortune.—X.

At last the clock struck twelve, the masks were taken off. and he saw the avenging face and form of his angry wife whom he had left safely at home. "Are you satisfied?" he said, coolly.

A curious relic, a century nnd a half old, was acwduuuilly found by the beadle of tho Inn hoi dors' company while takinjr a stroll through llounds- di'.ch. In the matter of measures for corn or for beer, from pottles to pewter pots, the gcntlonwii is an antiquarian connoisseur, and when lie saw on an .old stall a strange looking article he instinctively knew that it was an ancient hoUlo for measuring corn, und might oven have had ru its day the honor of belonging to the company with which he is associati-il. -V.-'hat's lliat?" he :vt;kcil the dealer. •"J"hr,t'r> a spittoon," was the reply.

TAKE STEPS in time, if you nrc a sufferer from" tbnt scourge^ of humanity known as ' consumption, and you can be cured. There is the evidence of hundreds of living witnesses to the' fact thnt. in < all its early; suites, consump-' tion is .1 curable disease. Xot every case, but a large prrccnlagf of casts, and we believe, fully yS j>fr cent, arc- cured by Dr. Piurcc's Golden Medical Discovery, even after Ui_c disease has pro- jrrcssed so far as to induce repeated bleedings from the lungs, severe linjjcriii^ cough with copious expectoration (including tubercular matter), Rreat loss ol" flesh and extreme emaciatioB and weakness. Do you doubt that hundreds of such cases reported to us as cured by " Golden Medical Discovery " were genuine cases of that dread and fatal disease ? You need not talcc our word for it. They have, in nearly every instance, been so pronounced by the_best and most exoerienced home physicians, who have no interest whatever in misrepresenting them, and who were often strongly prejudiced and advised against a trial of ''Golden Medical Discovery," but who have been forced to confess that it surpasses, in curative power over this fatal malady, all other medicines with which Uie3' are acquainted. Nasty cod- liver oil and its filthy "emulsions" and mixtures, nad been tried in nearly all these cases and had either utterly failed to benefit, or had only seemed to benefit a little for a short time. Extract of malt, whiskey, and various preparations of the hypo- phosphites had also been faithfully tned in vain. The photographs of a large number of those cured of consumption, bronchitis, lingering coughs, asthma, chronic nasal catarrh aad kindred maladies, have been skillfully reproduced in a book of 160 pages which will be mailed to you, on receipt of address and six cents in stamps. You can then -write to those who have been cured and profit by their experience. Address for Book, WORLD'S DISPENSARV MEDICAL ASSOCIATION", BuBalo. X. Y.
