FEB. 21 ROBERT E PATTISON of Pennsylva. nl», who has heretofore met v»llh nothing but succeee In politics, met bis Waterloo on Tuesday last After having twice been elected comptroller on the Democratic ticket in the face of a large normal Republican ma jorlty and twice been chosen Governor Of so strong a Republican state as Pennsylvania, be and hie frleodB thought that defeat was impossible. If he won hie fight for the mayoralty of Philadelphia his friends argued he could secure the Democratic nomina tlon for^Prebident next year. The voters of Philadelphia stood in the way of his ambition, however, and turned PattorsonXpolitical luck. He was defeated on Tuesday for mayor by tho Republican candidate, Warwick, who had 60.9S9 plurality, the largest plurality ever given a candidate for mayor of Philadelphia. The municipal elections throughout Pennsylvania resulted in a great Republican victory. Patterson can now condole withhia friend Col. Wm. M. Slngerly, editor of the free trade Phllailelphia Record, who was defeated last November for Governor by General Hastings who rolled up a;plurality of 241,000. ••>-':' : A BILL has been Introduced In the Pennsylvania legislature to punish persons who wilfully make libolous statements to newspaper reporters and editors. Ills similar in its intent, says the Fourth Estate, to that adopted by the New York legislature last year. It provides, "That any person who shall wilfully state or deliver or transmit by any moans whatever to the manager, editor or reporter of any newspaper, magRzUe, periodical or serial, for publication therein, any llbelous '.. statement concerning any person or corporation, and thereby secure the actual publication of the samo, Is hereby declared fiutlty of a misdemeanor, and upon conviction shall bo sentenced to pay a fine not exceeding $500 and undergo an imprisonment for a period not exceeding two years, or either, at the direction of tho Court." JUDGE 'ADAMS, of Wayne county, Now York, oausod a sensation there by charging tho grand jury to investigate church fairs where the law against lotteries was violated and to bring in indictments against tho j?uU l y parties. He also Instructed tho grand gury to indict all persons having nickel-in-the-slot machines in their place of business. THE head of a New York newspaper syndicate says that more space has been devoted to Mrs. Hetty Green, the richest woman in the country, in the past throe months than to any man or woman in America.. The number of columns published during that time about this wealthy and eccentric woman Is roughly estimated at 15.000. A Loss ISLAND, N. Y. preacher last Sunday in a sermon condemning dances, progressive euchre parties and Other amusements said that round dances were nothing more than "a hupglnjj set to music." He also de- nounced'the gambling carried on In saloons, which he said was encouraged by progressive euchre parties. THERE is a newspaper in Peking, China, that has been published for 1,000 years and during that time 1,900 of its editors have been beheaded or nearly two a year. Chinese editors should receive large salaries to make up for this roueh treatment. A GERMAN statistician baa published a hook to prove that Monday and not Friday is the unlucky day of the week. More fatal and unfortunate occurrences, accordicg to his tables have occurred on Monday than OB any other d»y of the week. A HARVARD stuceni has been espell- ed who attacked an undergraduate with a small whip because he was Incensed at what he asserta was a false accusation against him.

A Reltdent'l Description of Boma of the Undesirable Neighbor* Ho Dun In th» Equatorial WUd»— .; Big Boat. ( Among 1 recent arrivals in San Francisco was Frederick Cook, of Playa do Oro, !n the wilds of Ecuador, seven hundred miles south of Panama. Mr. Cook has been enpaped In mining for gold and battling with boa constrictors, rampire bats, Ecuador timers, and other queer products of that strange land of dense tropical growths. n ° lias brought a lot of skins of mammoth boas "with him, as well as rare woods, heavy as iron, hides of the tiger, and other thing's without number. Some of the big- snakes he killed hira- sulf, and were from twelve to seventeen long. The skins are dried and ho will now have them tanned. One of them is more than two feet wide. They are mottled in a strange way appropriate to that part of the tropics, lie said to a Sun Francisco Examiner- reporter that he is going- to have them made into purses, ladies' belts and slippers und then present them to his friends. ''An impression prevails," he said, recently, "that these boa constrictors are a savage snake that lies in wait in a tree and springs upon and \vraps itself about the unwary. In two years that I was there I never knew a case of this sort. In fact, they are rather sluggish, and won't attack if you let them alone. "Nevertheless, they are not very pleasant things to have in the house, and they will get into your house. H vou nrc not very careful. All the houses down there are built upon stilts, us well to avoid dampness as the snakes. Still this won't keep them out. I was living in such a house down there ,whcn a boa came hi after a rooster. I was talking with a carpenter, and he struck at it with a shovel. It escaped through a hole, and I went around and hit it with a shovel and finally killed it with n, machete, the bigknifo with a ttadc over two feet long, used in that country. "Another boa I killed with a heavy ironwood cane. The reptile was twelve feet loug, fully a foot and a half through. I would not be afraid to attack one of these with a cane if ho were fully fifty feet long. The black snakes are far worse. They nre from twelve to twenty feet long, and these attack from trees and wrap tncrasalves around their victim. Yet another snake to be avoided and one that ig very poisonous is the occa. It is about six'fcct long and has a big diamond- shaped head and fangs at least two inches long. "The viragosa, which Is similar to the occa, has a backbone like some fish, being rough like a saw. It is very vicious and poisonous and gets to bo twelve feet long. It is brownish and looks very much like a brown piece oi velvet or plush. Some of the natives killed one, while I was there and it fought and struck desperately. "This seventeen-foot boa was killed by ;i Jamaica uc-gro, who went right, up j to it and struck it with a machete. It was nine inches in diameter. "To get rid of these snaky visitors I had a new house made. It was not only put up on piles, but was constructed otherwise to make it very difficult to access. In the first place I made the doors tight. The celling I had constructed of closely fitting bamboo, and the floor of palm equally tight. Then I had the windows covered wtth wire screen. No glass is used thero whatever, for that would make the house stuffy and they need all the air that can be got. "Besides this, when 1 went to bed I used a mosquito bar. Sand flics and different other insects get into the house here, no matter bow particular you are. With all these precautions I was able to sleep 'secure of boa constrictors and other reptiles, as well as the vampires or blood-sucking bats. Let me tell yon here in regard to the vampires, that it is no joke to come in contact with them. If you are not careful they fasten themselves on you and you are half dead before you know it," TEMPERATURE OF SEA DEPTHS. A Theory' Accounting tor the ColilocM "f the Bottom of Ocean*. The hydrographers tell us that the law which is constant for the landed portion of the earth's surface must be inverted for the oceans. The further we descend into the earth's surface crust, says the St. Louis PLCpublic, the higher is the temperature; on the other hand, the deeper we descend below the natural habitat of the white-cap waves, the lower becomes the temperature^ of the water. Very recent • observation proves that an almost arctic coldness exists over the whole of the deep sea bed, there being DO perceptible difference in the temperature of the deeper stratas of the Indian and the Arctic oceans. It is a well-known fact that sea water does not ffeeze as readily as 'fresh water, and, unlike the latter, it continues to grow heavier until it reaches the freezing point. Thns the effect os' the intense cold of the arctic regions is to..cause a constant sinking down of the cold surface water, which causes a current of. most intense cold to flow toward the equator; while to sap- plv the. place of what sinks down, an indraughtvpr northward flow takes place .on the surface. The above is the generally accepted "vertical circulation" 'theory, which explains the cause of tho low temperature which prevails at the bottom of the oceans the world over. - ".GROPING IN THE DARK. Th» PrM»nt State of th« Nation'* Finm- cl»l A«»lr». It isn. blessing to weak human nature that it has not to bear the heavy handicap of foreknowledge. If the losses and disasters of 1S83 could have been foreseen, how frig-htfully the suffering would have been increased. Ii' the slow and painful half-recovery of 1S94 had been foreseen in all its wearying details, multitudes of business men 'would have refused to face all the risks of the year with the certainty of such scanty profits. A beneficent darkness hid from us the outcome, nnd eternal hope spurred men to employ many thousand hands during- part of tho year with little gain to themselves. No one cnn know what the new year may have in store. The most careful and sagacious estimates in such revolutionary times as these are apt to wander far from the truth. The root of trouble and of doubt is that, the si'ai.i- tion is in the strictest sense revolutionary. The old order changes. Tliirty- tbree \vnrs of steady ami unflinching protection for home industries and of stout-hearted maintenance of the national credit end in a reversal so complete that no one can guess how far it may go. fn general, we know that something like a quarter of the nation's industry is unemployed at this Lime, and that Its treasv.r.y has forfeited the confidence of the ablest bankers and money lenders by urging upon congress a policy which, if not one of uiu-nLstakablc bad faith, was at least eminently calculated to render hostile those whose trust a borrowing nation has need to cultivate. So the year 1393 begins with the nation's credit lower than it has been at any other time for many years, and with u greater part of its industry un- emploved than at any time in the thirty-two years 1800-0:2 inclusive. From such a state of depression, under the natural law of reaction, some recovery might with reason be expected, and the people have done their best to assist recovery by their verdict against further prosecution ol the revolutionary policy, lint no one can know how far the continued agitation during the present session of congress may undermine business or how far the new duties on woolens may embarrass those American works that ure still in operation, or" how far the distrust ol! the government's rjnaneia.l nolicy may drive gold abroad. We arc all in tho dark, and probably it is a blessing that the'future cannot be accurately foreseen. At the foundation o£ nil our industries is agriculture, and its prospects for the coming year arc not entirely cheering. With iifty-cont 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, lint prices of meats, of vegetables and the minor grains, of wool and tobacco, are not such, as to encourage a large expansion of growth. The farm is u machine which can only be made profitable .by raising something to sell, and the American fanner, ever since t.he decision to change the national policy in J.S'.ii, has been 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 tho manufacturing producers when half the people, directly dependent upon agriculture, are forced to restrict their purchases. The-picture would not be true to Ufa if it were not somewhat somber. Yet it does 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 were 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 re-' sources which, only two years ago, made this the wonder-working nation of the world. Sad and hard experience has brought light to many. The people have started distinctly and resolutely upon a more rational policy. In what form and how soon it will find expression, how long industries and trade may 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 will not long suffer their prosperity to be stolen from them by tbe'dominance of hostile foreign theories, and will find a way to make their will felt and obeyed even by the present administration. The "millions know, if the time-serving politicians do not, that, they can get full and fair employment for all their labor, and a prosperity greater than has ever blessed any other land, by returning to the national policy which they enjoyed in 1S92. It is for the good people themselves to find a way to make their wishes heeded. — N. Y!

A brave pastor of his flock was he who was born at Kcnlmere hall, in England Luke district, in the year 1517. This Lnrnard's Gilpin had no love of power and place, for he quietly refused, a bishopric when it was ofl'crod him, an unusual proceeding- for a village clergyman. His enemies would have dragged him to the stake at Durham for having- adopted the principles of the reformation, and as they could not succeed by force they tried guile and drew up thirty articles n£a.inst him, which they laid before Bishop Bonner. "Tho heretic shall bo burned in less than a fortnight," said Homier. Gilpin heard of the plot, and with the utmost composure resolved to suffer for the truths he had adopted. Indeed lie even seemed glad of the opportunity to prove his fealty. He called William Airy, his almoner, to one .side. "At length," said he, laying his hand upou his steward's shoulder, "they have I prevailed against me. I am accused to j the bishop of London, from whom there is no escaping. Cod forgive their malice and give me strength to undergo the trial!" So he patiently suffered arrest and rode away to London. On the journey his horse fell and Gilpin's leg was Broken. One of ' his favorite sayings had been that "nothing happens to us but what is for our good," and now his enemies taunted him with it. "Is this, thy broken leg, then, for thy good?" asked they. "I make no question but it is,'" he replied, and, says Youth's Companion, he was right, for Queen Mary died before he could resume his journey to London, and thus he regained his liberty. EXPLOSION BY MUSIC. Vibration 'of G Strlnc of n Tiunf Viol Ei- ploile/i Iodide of yitroyvn. One of "the most dangerous of all explosives is a black powder called iodide of nitrogen. When it is dry the slightest touch will often cause it to explode with great violence. There appears to be a certain rate of vibration which the compound cannot resist. In e>rperijnents to determine the cause of its excessive explosivencss some damp iodide of nitrogen was rubbed on the strings of a bass viol. It is known, says Youth's Companion, that the strings of such an instrument •will vibrate when those of a similar instrument, having an equal tension, arc played upon. In this case after the explosive had become thoroughly dry upon the strings, another bass viol was brought near, and strings were sounded. At a certain note the iodide on the prepared instrument exploded. It was found that the explosion occurred only when a rate of vibration of sixtv nor second was communicated to the prepared strings. Vibration of the G string caused an explosion, while I that of the E string had no eflect. A JAPANESE BABY.

"The gentleman might overhear you. lie is a fellow-countryman of your father's." "Well, papa is a foreign devil, too." This incident would seem to show that certain colloquial phrases have survived the feeling of hated for foreigners which the .lapancsc abandoned so- many years ago.

Up and down the stage walked a fat man, smoking a pipe, and with a big trombone under his arm. "Where is the orchestra?" asked the playwright. "It has gone across the river !,o play at a, dance—all but me," was the fat man's reply. "And are you all 1 have to depend on for music?]' "Yes, sir." "I suppose, then," said {lieplaywright, try- ing'to be cheerful, "that you are full of music and a great player." "No, sir," said the fat man, tranquilly; "I'm not worth a cent, or I'd bo at the dance, too." Ifo \Va.i rurllcnliir. An old fisherman in Xartlc, Devon, made it one of the chief cuds of his life to keep his' boat immaculate. On one occasion, a gentleman had hired him to lake himself and a young lady out for an afternoon's fishing. The boat could not be brought near enough to the shore for them to step in; so the old sailor removed his shoes and! stockings, and taking the young lady in his arms, was about to deposit her on board, when he caught sight of some mud on her pretty pair of boots. Instantly he stooped and dipped both her feet up to the ankles in the sea, paddling them back and forward to remove the mud, in spite of the protests of tho the owner. His only remark, as he . finally put her on board, was: "Bless ycr, miss,"salt water won't give yer tho ' snuffles." _ Queen Victoria is very fond of a sonp made as follows: Take a half pound of Frankfort pearl barley and set it in a stew pan with three pints of veal stock.
