[Entered M seoond-clua matter at the lapaa- poWoft Office, Febinary 8, 1888-1 TUESDAY MORNING, FEB. 19. DUEING the trial of Queen Lil for treason, now pending, her diary which was confiscated was read. In one place she stated that she had received President Cleveland present. The entry does not state what the present was. ^ A TOUNG colored man, the son of a colored barber at Bloomington, .made the best oration at a recent contest at ihe Slate University and will repre eont the University In the State ora- torlcal coolest soon to be held. This la encouraging to the young colored men of the State showing that their opportunities are as good as any. NOTWITHSTANDING the depression in business during 1893 and 1894 tho gifts of American philanthropists to oburche?, museums, libraries, colleges and other public Institutions,of a religious, educational and charitable nature, woro very largo. In 1893 the toial gifts to these institution* in this country amounted to $33 319.8GG, and In 1894 to $19,907.116. MRS. HiiNKV SIDGWICK, principal of Newnham, the famous English college for youug women, bas published some interesting statistics to show what becomes of English girl gradu atea. Of CG7 graduates known to be alive, 108 have married, 122 are living at home, Gvo are-doctors, two missionaries, one a bookbinder, one a market gardener, and 374, more than half, teachers. WHILE the bill to make insanity a cause for divorce wa8;defeated in the Illinois House of Representatives, yet it ia a surprising fact that no less than forty-five members voted for its passage. There is no more reason why mental sickness should be a ground for divorce than bodily illness. There should be no legislation of this kind to annul the marriage pledge, "In poverty and In wealth, in sickness and in health, until death do us part." UNDER Hoke Smith's administration of the Interior department the men who were wounded and had their health shattered In the defeuce of their country have been shamefully treated. Tho report of the Board of Final Review of the Pension office shows that 46,012 claims wore ad mlttcdand 58,357 rejected. There wore 12,8-15 moro .claims rejected than admitted, or about 41 per cent admitted to 56 per cent, rejected. JUDOE RICKS la the United States Court ta Toledo recently ruled that ten thousand dollars is the highest value that can be placed upon the life of a man who had been killed In a railroad accident. The judge declared that several legislatures having made thl e the maximum amount that can be recovered in actions against lailroad corporations, be was willing to accept the united judgment of these legiflla tures. THE farmers have been among the worst sufferers by tie tariff tinkering of the Democrats, Tho Bankers' Magazine shows that each year since ihe Democratic party came in power in 1892. the farmers have lost more than a hundred million dollars. The farm value of the wheat, cotton and corn crops In 1892 was $1,286 SOO.OOO. in 1893, $1,000,309,000 and in 1894, $1,170,100,000. Oa the three crops alone the farmer was $186.000,000 behind in 1893, and $116,000.000 behind in 1S94. nwTw* proiis. **ire» L,CleMNoHColumbiii,vhio, • , W J?

Tho engagement of Miss Anna Gould to Prince Castellane Is reported and, It is said, the Prince will get two million dollars for marrying Miss Gould. It is also said that a marriage is in the course of arrangement between Miss Consuelo Vanderoilt and the young Dulce of Marlborough, and the affair has gone so far that negotiations are being made for the marriage settle ment.

I « T • * Baking Powder TJiOtBLESOME CHINESE. A Source of Great Annoyance to tbe Government Officials.,- Op«r»tloo» of the Sly relc»- tlxli In thi> Rio Ornnde Coaatry —Effect* of the Exclxulon In no section of this country did the Chinese exclusion act entail such hardships upon the almond-eyed residents oi tho United States as it did along the Rio Grande in Texas. In the revenue district of the Rio Grande there were, previous to last June, about one thousand Chinamen. El Pasa, the main port of entry from Mexico, claimed seven hundred and fifty of these, and San Antonio, an inland city, one hundred and ten. The rest are scattered about, throe ov four in each little town in the district. It was found by the revenue officers that not over four-hundred oi these were entitled to remain in the United States, and the other six hundred were deported, either to China or to Mexico, if they came to this country from that republic, says Harper's Weekly. lil j"'usO was allotted tun thousand three hundred and thirty-ui^ht inhabitants by the census of 18!)0, and the bxiKincss interests of the city are nearly entirely dependent, upon the transfer of poods from or into Mexican (erritory. Two waffon bridges and one railroad bvidfjf connect American with Mexican soiUmd at times the Uio Grande isso low that it can be crossed almost dry-shod. Railroads roach to the north, oast, west and south, affording- quick nnd easy transit in any direction, so tluit it is an ideal sronffjjlinjr point. Notwithstanding the sleepless vigilance of the revenue officers, the smugg-liuff trade assumes formidable proportions, and it is largely due to this fact that the Chinese element forms so larfre n proportion of the population. The Chinaman is an expert smuggler, and devotes h'us energies to transferring- Opium, tobacco, silks. Mexican embroidery anu dra.wn-v.'01'lc, on all of which articles there is a heavy tariff, from Mexican to United States soil without paying- duty thwreou. The most profitable article for smiigpling- has been in the past the Chinaman him-^ self, and it was to prevent the" whole-' sale importation of this class of g-ooda that congress made the Chinese exclusion law even more severe than it was nnder the act of 1SS3. In 1SSG congress passed a law prohibiting- the coming- of Chinese laborers into the United States for a period of ten years, and provided a penalty for bringing them in. In this act a provision was made for certificates of identification for those already here, which entitled them to come nnd ffo. This act vras easily evaded .it El 'Paso, and doubtless elsewhere, for John would show up one day in queue, long shirt and wooden shoes and receive his certilicato as "ITonjr." and the next day the same mild-lookinfv oriental would put in an appearance dressed "allco samce Mcl- ican man"' and receive his certificate as "Lling." One of those certificates was naturally for sale, and the price they brought" ran at times as high as two hundred dollars. Across the river from' El Paso is the Mexican city, of El Juarez. There are many Chinamen there as well, who act jis confederates of their countrymen across the. river. Chief among then-, is "Doc" Sing, who is rated commercially at about one hundred thousand dollars. "Doe" is king among- them, and with fertile and cunning brain he has engineered many a scheme whereby the revenues were none the. richer, or whereby the population of the United States was increased -by one Mongolian not really entitled to the protection of the stars nnd stripes. Wong Ming is his chief lieutenant, and is a resident of El Paso, where he ranks high as a business man. Wong Ming has lived in the United States abont seventeen years, and is one of the few Chinamen who have families to share the freedom of this country with them, and he lives a retired and domestic life. These two Chinamen arc the authorities in the Rio Grande country among their own people, and everything that comes up for settlement among themselves or in the relations of the Chinese to the Americans is referred to them. In October. 1SSS. an act of congress went into afreet abolishing the certificate of identification. This cut oft' a groat source of revenue, and the importation of Chinamen became simply a question of out-and-out smuggling. In^ ISO- the exclusion law was extended to 190-J. This now law also provided that to remain in the United States a Chinaman must obtain a certificate showing that he was here in 1SS2. On these certificates are photographs of their holders, and the certificates cannot be obtained without the testimony, of a reputable white man to the eiJect that the statements made by the Chinaman arc correct. In the registration there, was great trouble at first in getting the pictures taken according to law, the regulations as to size and costume being very strict. When "Wong-Ming and his family were about to be registered a new difficulty arose. The women, according to their custom, bad never been seen by white man.and w.ore heavy veils when npon.the street The agent of the government agreed to.a private andience, andTVong TVTiiwr and his wife, her two sisfcwj a»ri bis iwo-year-ol'd child were duly pb.oi-.c- graphed and registered. The smuggling 1 of Chinamen has by this new law been reduced to a minimum, but the traffic in contraband goods still keeps up, owing to the vast line of v thinly- guarded territory and the expertness of the smugglers. THE HAIR-CUT. Peculiar Significance of the Different Stylet In Old Knclaud. For, say, fifty years, the fashion pi the wearing of men's nnd boy's hair in England has been to cut it shorter and shorter, so that to-day hah- is shorn in many (yses as. close as the barber's shears c~n get. A closely-cropped head, fifty yews and less ago, was, in many places, looked upon with some suspicion, for then only prison birds just out of durance appeared with closely- shorn heads, and this cut was popularly known as tho "county crop,'' indicating that the wearer of the short hair had been barbered S, the expense • of the county. If ::riy man was bold enough, says ;s~otcs and Queries, to appear with his hair cut short, the words "country crop" were thrown at him from all sides; and, in the same manner, the school lad who came to school with his hair cut shorter than was the country fashion, had his life made miserable in the same way, until such time as his hair had grown again. The "country- crop" was a different matter altogether. Barbers' work was done on men and boys in many instances at home by mothers and grandmothers, and their mode was to put a large basin well back on tho crown of the head, and then shear round the edge of the basin, making a clean sweep of all tho hair which projected below it. This was the "country crop." Josephine made handkerchiefs popular in the present century. She had very bad teeth and always held a handkerchief before her lips when she laughed to conceal the deformity. CHEAPEST ELECTRIC LIGHT. Service IH Tliutof Clilen That Own Their Own Plam»-I»tercstins Marlon Chronicle: A strong ar^u . ment in favor of cities owning and operating their own electric light plants Is given by investigations made by a Chicago paper. It collected the cost of electric lighting in J38 cities with a population in excess of 30,000, and found that in 18 cities where the lighting la done by contract with private companles-tbe average cost per light per annum for an all night service is $109.81- Xbe highest price per lamp paid is $170 50. and the lowest price $80 per acEum. In 20 cities that own their electric plants and furnish their own electric lights the average cost per lamp per annum for an all night service is $55 50. and the highest price paid being $82.40, and the lowest $38.50. Marion with a population of 16,000 owns her own electric light plant, furnishes 110 lighlaatan innual cost of $48 per light. Next year the city council will enlarge the capacity of the plant as there Is a steady demand for more lights. of Sickly Wires: Don't be discouraged. There ia escape from doctors' bills.

FLORA. NEW YORK. MAY SOT ACCEPT TheJtev. U. A. I'crelynl In Urscil to Kcmnin at [aiMbuwake. Misbawka Enterprise: Rev. H A. Perclval, the talented younff pastor of the Presbyterian church, is already attracting attention abroad and bas recently received a call from one of the prominent churches In Logansport at an increased salary, On Sunday last, a delegation of Logansport gentlemen, headed by Judgo Baldwin, attended the morning and evening services hero to listen [to Rev, Perclval. The latter was unaware of their coming', but as all of the reverend -gentleman's sermons are of a high order of ability, It Is unnecessary for him to bo especially prepared for such occasions, and it is safe to say that the visitori could not have been disappointed in the sermons they heard. Mishawakans—and especially the members of bis congregation—would sincerely regret losing Mr. Porcival, but in the natural order of things they realiza that it is only a question of time when his abilities will command a moro extended field of labor than, can be afforded here. However, we are pleased to 'earn that at present there is little likelihood of the Lcgaosport call being accepted. 11 I>callt 01" .1I>-N. SMimlo (Van Xo»») Jturham. ThoChieo (Gal ) Enterprise of Feb.
