PROTECTION AND THE SOUTH Henry WaUerson, the famous orator and editor of the Louisville Courier- Journal told a New York Tribune cor- espondent this week that the break In the South from theUemocratlc party was a permanent one. Mr. Watlereon also frankly admitted that protection has been gaining ground in the South. New recruits for that cause, he said, -pricg up from tbo introduction of manufactories and the diversification of industries. Couou manufacturing in bis judgment, will be rc-movoi 1 - In- ovitably from Now England to tho cot- tor, belt, where there are superior fa- cUillas for carrying iton economically. In like manner ho anticipates tho transfer of the iron industry from Pennsylvania to Tennessee and Alabama. WUh H" inexhaustible supplies of cottou, iron, coal and timber, tho South - has all the raw materials-required for successful competition with tbo North in manufacturing. Mr. WaUerscn thinks It is destined to become tho manufacturing center of the country. These change* in the Industrial order, ho said, are inevitable, and will involve naturally a shifting of opinion on economic questions. 'Aidcfl by tho proverbial zeal of ew converts, protection may jot Had u strongest support where industries are noweBt—that ie, in tho South. STATISTICIANS Buy that about one- bird of all humanity, or about 400,300,000 people, speak the Chinese anguago. Tho Hindoo language and ta various dialects are spoken by perhaps 125,000 000, tho third place being accorded the English language, which Is now used by not less thai 112 000 000 people. TheRuesiim Ian- uage comes fourth, 89,000,000 persons' daily using it to tho exclusion of all others. Tbo German language Is the audible expression of 57,000,000 human beings, and tho Spanish of about -18,000,000 Among European languages French now takes flfth place, and when tho languages of the world are considered it is the seventh in the category. . Senatorial deadlock in Delaware Is one of tbo most stubborn on record and tho vote remains about the sume as when the contest began over a monihago. Senator Anthony Hig gins, who 'has shown much ability during his six years in tho Senate, has been in tho lead since tho start, but it 1» doubtful whether the Addick 1 * supporters can be persuaded to vote for him, BO bitter has been tho contest. U would appear that a dark horse will finally get the seat. Anyway it w time the contest was decided.

Iiihtlin-'t unil tlic Man Km-npi-d Ki<lnsr Devoured by tho Of all branches of railway engineering there is none which brings the ollicer into closer contact with a hard-working- lot of men than the maintenance ol way work. Sometimes there are comical features even in this department, and • one of these was recently told to a writer for the St. Louis Globe-Democrat by a well-known engineer, who hides his real nameundor the pseudonym of Jerry Sullivan. It is a tale of one Tim, a track walker, who came in late one night and reported to the other occupants of the bunkhousc that lie had been delayed by an extraordinary encounter with a'bear. "Xcar the ind of the section," said Tim, "close to the old tic cainn, I was comin' along about half past three o'clock-, and just afther erossin' that little bridge 1 hcerd a nize of snmthin' rustlin' in the bushes down at the bottom of theclnmp, andthinkin' it was a rabbit 1 fired a rocl; down into 'im. and in a second there was a terrible slash in' around in thim bushes, and I see a big cinnamon bear come out siice/.in' and ruhbin' bis nose, and thin, before T rightly come to rue sinscs,,thc hear seen me and up the dump he come. Well, I started down the track as tight as I could go, but 1 hadn't went two tele'n-aph poles until I look back and S"e tho bear still comin'and gainin'on me ivery jump. So I dropped me adze and rinuli and stretched meself for all I was worth. Hut, it was no use, the bear was still gfiinin', and 1 was wondcrm' what on airth I was go-if to do, whin I sec the iron pipe under the track- near the cut. and I made for that and wint in just clear, whin tho bear jammed his head in at the ind. Hut he was too big to go in, and he couldn't reach me, and so he pawed around and snorted and bit the ind of the pipe, and tried first one side and thin the other. But I was safe, and 1 lied there and panted and blessed the man that invintcd iron pipe. "V.'cll. I thought the bear would go away after awhile, but he didn't; he stayed right there, wid his head in first wan ind of the pipe and thin the other, and when he came round to the upper ind I wished I had held on to the rinch so I could hit him a bolt over the nose. After bein' in there over two hours I begin gittin' cold, and I see somcthin' had to lie done, and i thought I'd try smokin' him out. So I managed to light me pipe, and thin I smoked for all Tkuew how, but the bear still kept his head in the hole, and I crawled up closer and blew the smoke right in his face. He snorted a little, but wouldn't back out, and seemed to be gettin' madder all the time. Thin, whin I was nearly froze to death, I happened to think of the stick ot giant powder in me pocket, and, thinks I: 'Now 111 settle vour hash.' So I puts a fuse m the stick of'giant, and crawls up and threw it right under the bear's head, nnd thin touched off the fuse and backed down to the other ind of the pipe 1 guess that bear thought I was rroin" to run away, for, he run across the track to the other ind; thin, whin I crawled back to get me feet out of his reach he crossed back again and stuck his head and neck into the pipe just as the giant wint off. Widout thinkin', I had made a big cannon out of the water pipe, and whin it v.-int off I was fired but and landed in the middle of the river aud was nearly drowned before I knew just where I was at. But I finally struck the other bank and got out and wint up to the station and flagged the passenger and rode home. After climbin' up the bank I looked back and saw smoke comin' out of the lower ind of the pipe and the bear still lookin 1 at the upper ind and tryin' to see phwat in blazes had happened."

A monument, which cost sixty pounds sterling, was erected to tho memory of the lost favorite. The expenses of the caskets, the funeral, the tomb and the memorial amounted to one hundred pounds sterling- Thc un " derlaker who carried out 1 he order was rather pi-.z/lod at first, rind mentioned the matter to a police commissary, who advised him toffot a death certificate of the dog signed by two witnesses.

Like the English millionaires, those of the czar's dominions mostly derive their revenues, from landed property. "While the -JSritou, however, devotes a large part of his gross income toward improving his possessions and to tne amelioration of the lot of his tenants in one way or another, the Russian, on tho other hand, extracts every farthing that he can from his property and spends it upon himself, the result being that agriculture in Russia is going from bad to worse, that formerly fertile and productive estates have now become barren and impoverished, and . that, while the peasantry arc in a state of misery bordering on famine, the nobles themselves have been obliged to mort"-a"'C or sell their lands, and arc at the end of their financial tether. Of course, there arc some exceptions, such as, for instance, the Yousoupofl's. tno Demidofisaud the Schcremeticrts. The wealth of tho DeruidofTs is so vast, according to the New York- Tribune, that it is beyond calculation, and strangely cnouHi the fortune is of relatively recent creation, its founder having been a country blacksmith in the days of 1 c- tcr the Great. It was while traveling in the Ural mountains that the latter broke one of his most valuable English pistols. A -village smith mended it so I ouickly and. so well that the czar was delighted and asked the man's name. "Deraidoff, 1 shall remember you, 1 ' said he as he rode off. The poor man was bepinnin" to think that Peter had forgotten him when there came an official document adorned with the imperial seal, granting him the freehold of a "n-rcat tract of crown land in the neighborhood of the village. Demidoff went to work on his new property and found there inexhaustible mines, of iron, silver and malachite. Young Eiim Dern- idofc—he does not bear in Russia tne Italian title of prince generally prefixed to his name by foreigners—is at the present moment the richest man m the world. Princess Yousonpoff, with her great turquoise mines, coming nest in rank. Fortunately, both of them, are more free-handed and generous than their respective immediate predecessors as head of the family, the late Anatole Demidofl and the late Pnnce Yousoupoffi having been alike renowned for their meanness' and avarice, of which almost incredible stories are related. THE DREAM _OF_ CHEMISTRY. Hopei In Time to rroduce F»l»tabl« B«f- •tcaks Oat of the Element*. The electrician has one dream and the social philosopher has another. But the chemist has also a vision of the alchemist of the dark ages. This- is how he would solve the problems of comfort and happiness which have been put to the human race: "The chemist hopes for a synthetic beefsteak, for a chemical loaf, for A cup of coffee made, like his sodawater extracts, out of inorganic matter. He wants to see the day when a synthetic climate shall envelop the earth, when the rainmaker shall be a prophet and man shall hold the string to the unruly ba£rs of Aeolug,. '^In that day the food and raiment of mankind, will be nrodnced in tho Wonmn I" lliissl:"- Americans who have exercised themselves about the restricted freedom o, pc'-sons living in Russia will naturally be surprised to learn how much freedom and power -women enjoy m the land of the czar. In some parts of Russia women arc not only members of school boards, but also serve as principals of workhouses and poor guardians. For instance, in one small province last year there were forty-five women m Oj- ficc as superintendents of workhouses, one hundred and twenty-five as pool- law guardians, and two hundred and eightv-three as members of school board's. In Finland the women do a great part, of the work that m other countries is left to the men. Most of the oldest and best orchards there wove planted aud cared 'for by women, and .the author and publisher of the first'Finnish work on pomology was a woman. Throughout Finland women , are regularly engaged in agricultural labor.
