The disastrous effect of Democratic tarit agitation has been felt by none more than by the farmer. In prevlou articles in the Journal it has h een shown how harmful this tariff tinker ing has been on the prices of wheat, wool and hogs. The American Econ omist of Feb. 22d ehows how the farmers have also suffered from the reduction in tho value of_the corn crop since the free traders have bad ful sway. The difference between what tho farmer-j got lor their corn crops during the three years o! protection and during the two subsequent years tuder tho freetraders ia shown by tho following statistics: Average Average Valuo Period, Crop Viiluu. tusliei. per aero ItiW-K $7'M,O,770 $().•« iwv% , .-in s.s-i ••vVo QnU bhaL ina average value oi tho corn crop was $171,167,355 more during each of the three years ot McKinley proieclion than under tho present administration of the free traders. Tho average price was over two cents a bushel more on the farm und the harvest from each acre was worth SLJM more to the farmer under protection. The farmers, no doubt, would ho glad to have that extra $171,000.000 a year, or !?3-l2.000.000 that they have lost during the two years that the free traders enabled them to sell their corn in "the countries of the world that stand ready to take our entire surplus of products " Let us see if we can ascertain why they lost it. During tho three years of protection the corn crop averaged 1,726.190,000 bushels a year. This was 310,000,000 bushels more each year than the aver age crop in our free trade times. The average yield per acre was more, being 23.G bushels under protection and only 20 9 bushels to the acre when "the countries of tbe world" stood "ready to take our entire surplus of products." Evidently the price should have been higher these two latest years, our crops being short and "the countries of tbe world" waiting for it. Wo aro very much afraid that when the free trade platform of 1S92 told our farmers that they would be able to -sell their corn in "the countries of Vbe world that stand ready to take our entire surplus of products," the free traders forgot to add that "tho countries of the world" would take it at their price, not at our price." IN the United States, according^ the statistics compiled by T. G. S.biarman, there arc -100,000 families^or- .about 2,000,000 people, whose annual, in. come amounts to $2 000 and more than 10,000 families having an " Income ol more than $25,000. On the other hand, there are in the United King, dom 123,000 families having an in come of about $3,000, and 5,000 families with an Income of more than $25.000. THE preservation of the hattle fields of the country as a matter of patriotic sentiment is commendable. George Washington favored it in his lifetime and with his own money purchased the scene of Braddock's defeat. Tbe tract purchased contained 234 acres, valued in the schedule attached to Washington's will at $6 an acre, and •eferred to in that document 88 "the Jreat Meadows where the first action with the French in the year 175-1 wae 'ought." As HAD heen predicted Chicago Republicans selected George B. Swift as their candidate for Mayor. Mr.. Swift is the choice of the whole party and not of a faction. He is & pood, strong, clean candidate and just the man that ia needed at the head of affairs in Chicago at this time. Al the indications point to his election.

This kind of weather makcB one fully appreciate the horror of Dante's •eventh hell; where, instead of belnj? comfortably warm, the poor souls sleep, sit on and eat ice, and, when they are remorseful, weep icicles A« well as possible, this state of affairs has existed in most homes: but I am so taken up with a burning 1 indignation that I feel more and more comfortable, as far as warmth goe<3, every minute, and more and more indignant the more I think about some things 1 have just heard I hope all newspaper editors aro going to be very nice, fend write out three very personal affairs. A littlo while ago a woman calling herself "Mrs. Coe,"was at a hospital in Philadelphia. While she remained there, eho told to the nurses and whoever would listen to her a story thatie absolutely untrue. She announced that eho was "Bab," and had cast aside her husband's name, and taken the one under which she was born. Now this woman is a fraud, 1 BAB" is NOT '-MRS. COE,'' Coe was not her maiden name, Bab was never in a hospital, she has not been to Philadelphia for three years, and she boars her husband's name with as much pride as she did the day she flrs't took it. So much for "Mrs. Coe," whoever and wherever she may be. Another woman, name unknown, has, I believe, been cavorting about in the Western States, being entertained at hotels, given theatre and railroad passes because she was ' 'Bab." ' 'Bab" has never been further west than Buffalo in her life. She never knew the joy of a railroad pass but once, and then she forgot to use it and bought a ticket. When she goes to hotels, she pays her way. I hope, if ever these two women are beard of again they will be arrested and held until tcan get where they are, and then I don't think there will be any necessity, for having a stove in the room. Tbe next sufferer from fraudulent representation ie my friend, and the woman I love best next to my mother, Ruth Ashmore. For two years Mias Ashmora has been a bit of an invalid. She has cot been away from her home which she shares with me, except to go to the country. The false "Ruth" solicited subscriptions, and I believe got a great number, a something which Ruth Aabmore never did, for her work is in a different lino. This woman was entertained by kindly people,, and visited largely through out Northern New York. I believe she is, just now, thinking over things behind the walls of a penitentiary, but my friend asks me to say that when she does go among strangers they will only find out when they grow to know her very well, that she is not merely "Miss Ashmore, a pleasant woman" but the "Ruth A-hmore," who count* among her acquaintances and friends so many girls all over the country. So much for myself and my kin, and indeed, dear Mr. Editor, who will blame me for being angry ? This was talked over when wo were having our tea, and after I had ex. pressed myself decidedly and made the air cheerful, we began to discus§ Other things, and this story was told. _ young Englishman, a theatrical manager whose diamonds are as large as his ambition, and whose rings are as innumerable as his flow of words, said to a man, apropos of his ability: 'The thing to do, dear boy, is to catch the ear of the vox popull "' After we had all laughed somebody else got to inking about the ••KIM A. DONNAS AND THEIK LOST DOGS They seem to get dogs to lose them. My private opinion la that the reason a prima donna likes a dog ia because ie masters hor when nobody else can. She becomes his slave, and every woman lilces a master,' evan if it Is-. one with four legs and a tail capable ; of exp -esslog joy or sorrow. The; time has come for dog stories. ; Miss Backnumber hurled this chest ^ nut at us yesterday She knew a dog,. n fact it belonged to her orother-in-: aw (this dog always does belong to; one's brother-in-law or one's cousin")., IB had his leg broken, and a klncUj leaned young doctor took him to a hospital, set his leg and kept htm. there for two or th>ee weeks, permit- tin!? him to enjoy all the luxuries of. the season, and to live an idyllc dog life, dh* time came for him to- go. Ako»t, v ,»_. week - after tho doctor *wa» standing at a wlndowjobklng out on the street, and he ; saw the dog frleid trotting toward the hospital with something ID hli moiM. '• In time the doctor saw It was a penny. The little dog stopped just ID. front of the door; there stood a push-cart man, who told such •pooge cakes as only a dog can appre elate. .He hesitated. All his foul went out to the sponge cake which be knew the penny . would buy, but the nobler feeling triumphed. Dropping a tear In memory of the lost dainty, he trotted up the steps and dropped the penny in the box at the door for the poor patients. This was a noble pup, but unfortunately for the young woman who told the story, nobody laughed, for we had all claimed that dog as being attached to us in some way. B IB'S NEXT DOG Now, my dog story is true, That's where it differs from every other dog story. A dog who frequently dines with me, a fox torrier, rfjjicing in the name of "Bieekins," always stops a3 he enters the front door and wipes his feet on the mat, I ask nobody to believe this. It ia asking too much even to demand that one's own kin should it; but I know it ie true. Another dog was told about then by a young woman, who pronounces vase as if it were spelled "vahse " She claims to have a pug that, when he hoars her play the march from "Lohengrin" joins in and sings it in perfect lime! I saw my mother adding bitter salt tears to her tea when this was told, for she has an old fashioned idea in regard to tbe value of truth, and yet ehe expected ue to believe this: She knew a dog, in fact ho belonged to her brother, who wouldn't eat terrapin unless it was diamond-back and had plenty of eggs in it. After this everybody took their tea without sugar. But, really and truly, there ia a dog of my acquaintance who won't eat in the kitchen unless some of the family go out and eit with him, because he is BO aristocratic. He cocks up his nose and wags his tail from side to side, aa if be were trying to tell of the blue blood in his veins, and to make you understand thoroughly that he would not associate with the Queen of the kitchen. Tbe telling of dog stories is undoubtedly demoralizing. Everybody knows of the man who was on his deathbed, and who started to tell tbe preacher a dog story. ( The invalid's breath grew short, and all he 'said was: "I once knew a remarkable dog; in fact, he belonged to my nephew," when he said very tenderly. "My friend, do not make any effort; rest assured we will meet in Heaven." He gave a gasp and sale!: "Are you sure of it?" The preacher answered, "Yes." The dying man's eyes brightened, there was a fUeh of intelligence ID bis face, and with his last breath, he said: "Remind mo then to tell you the rest of that story." THE DICTIONARY-CHEWiNG- DOG. After this too-true tale, can It be aald that dog stories are not dangerous? The drinking of absinthe Is as nothing, and the worst of it is that women take to them as naturally as a fish does to water, atd when one comes to think of it, this is somethicg they never do about fish stories. I know of a life long friendship being broken by a dog story. The dog in question was the omnipresent fox terrier, and he was clever. One woman gave him to the-oiher. and the woman who gave him felt that she had a right to use her Imagination about him, while the woman who owned him felt that it was her privilege, and they quarreled about that, and while they were doicg this the dog ate the back off of Worcester's Dictionary, and so gave his mistress an opportunity to explain hia versatility in regard to words. Ard this made tbe other woman maJder than ever. And these two parted In sorrow and tears, and the cause of it all lived a happy life, slept tbe sleep of the unjust and of dogs ate the fat of the land, and never knew what It was to worry about servants or fire insurances, but counted all the world as his slaves. There is that wonderful dog who goes to buy a penny bun, and walks out of the bake shop insulted, and never goes there any more, because tbe baker tried to defraud him by giving him, for his penny, a stale bun, when he knew that they sold at two for a penny. Then there is the dog who, when he saw the curtains on fire, got up on a chair and pressed the button of the fire alarm, and after this wakened everybody In tbe house Harry Frank's Great ^ February Clearance Sale!

O by biting at their toes, and stood by the baby's cradle, holding its cloak in its teeth, and having tbe fire insurance policy, which he had gotten out of his master's desk, securely pressed down under his tall. The dog was juet a littlo too knowing, though. He ia the sort that would sit up •WITH TWO LOVERS AS A CHAPERON, and bark whenever the lover attempted to kiss the young woman whom he loved with a mad, despairing passion. Then there is tbe dog who sleeps beside the baby, and when it has a croupy cough, wakes up tbe.mother, and then trots over to the cloeet where Dr. Pinkeyes' Croup Diepeller, is kept. I-never have met these dogs but I hear of them frequently, and they always belong to the blood kin of the woman who is telling about them.

FOE THOUGHTFUL TEOVLE. What a blessing it is that tbe law doesn't have one up for thinking. Of course there are a number of people who would never be had up, as early life they worked their thinking machines so hard that they got out of order. But there are gome evil thoughts always with ua. Who hasn't thought that Herod ought to wear a halo, when the chil. dren in the flat above have a good romp on a carpetless floor? Who hasn't thought that the fool- killer wasn't doing bis work when the newspapers tell of the riches of the man who gained them by preaching unbelief? Who hasn't thought that cook-book writers, who advise boiling a leg of mutton four hours, ought not to be allowed to promulgate these dangerous doctrines? Who hasn't thought that it was time all modest women to be careful about their daughters when other women start to tell stories only fitted for bar rooms? Who hasn't thought that the so- called temperance people are very Intemperate in their judgment of tbe peoplo who don't happen to agree with them? Who hasn't thought that a lot more practice ani a little lees preaching rould make the whole world better? Who hasn't thought that the meanest thing in the world is pretense?

"Ko," said the slightly cynical bachelor to :i Xcw York Tribune man, "it's not because 1 am tremendously popular that, I get invitations, and 1 don't consider it- such an honor to be invited to dine somewhere every night in the week with half a dozen or more invitations a week to spare.

Count \\~oronzoff Dachkoff. th'e' Russian court minister, who is one of tbo most important officials in the state, was one of those chief friends of the late czar and the only surviving one. At the new czar's earnest request he was to remain in office until the coronation took place to regulate tho ceremonial of that great event. Besides regulating- the court ceremonial he has the management of the czar's private property, which brings in a revenue of ten million dollars yearly.
