A manufacturer has taken a violent dislike to a preacher because, It is said, the clergyman was Instrumental In seuurlrg the conviction of the proprietor of a hotel, in which the manufacturer was financially interested, for illegally selling liquor. In retaliation, It is claimed, he has threatened .to discharge all his em. ployes who attend the church of which the clergyman is pasior, and even went so far as to declare that his employes should not trade with a certain storekeeper whose wife belonged to that church. Because his employes, did not obs.erve his wlsbee, It is claim, ed, that 'twenty-eeven .were locked out. 'The board is likely to reprimand the manufacturer. It is a pity that they have not authority to confiscate his property for tbe State. The Bicycle Season AMONG the worst sufferers by Democratic tariff tinkering have been ths railroad employes. The financial depression has been most disastrous to railroads and the employes have been the losers. Last year the gross earnings on 134,000 miles of road decreased 1122,000,000 and the net fell off $40,000,000. The depression caused the roade to reduce expenses 182,000,000, or at the rate of $6.500,000 per month. Tho Pennsylvania railroad earned $122,008,000 last, year. In 1893 its earnings amounted to $185,059.788 and in 1892 to $139,133660. Thirteen millions of tho more than seventeen millions lost came from the em- ployes, as the expense of operating the road in.,1892 wan $98 452 783 'and in 1894 was out to $85 142 174. Is now at hand.

THE eoDpfresbitnal Apportionment bill passed by the legislature la the fairest ever enacted In Indiana. Ao cording to the vote of 1892. when the Mate went, 7,000 Democratic, the Democrats have seven districts and the Republicans six. With the State even the Republicans have six and the Democrats six' with the thirteenth even. As the State goos Republican as often a<) Democratic the division is Absolutely fair. Notwithstanding thlt- the campaign of deception has alread} been begun and tbe bill li being styled "unfair" by thf demagogues. highly uivilistcd tribes which Cortes fo:iud in Muxico wore-of Scandinavian origin ami very ulosely allied to our own Snxon forefathers. I believe we shall soon bo able to establish this fact boyond a question of doubt. Indicn- tion point to the Scandinavians having come over from the {Treat noi'thcrn peninsula as early as the fourth-cen tury li. C. "SpL'iikhss 1 of Cortes arid the Spanis conquerors raisers a perfect storm pc-nt-up indignation within me ever timii [ hear the name, for Uie wor.l will never be able to fully realize th harm they have clone by their wanto: destruction of the records they foum and the stumbling- blocks they have'pii in the way of scientific researchers There aro not enough of.the-hicrofrlyh ic records of the Aztecs.remaining- t ever complete our knowledge of their civilization, but,, in my opinion, thi worst barriers have '"been successful!] passed. Many of our .scientists hav< beforrs'ed a very plaiacjuestion concern ing- Mexican hieroglyphics., .There never was a uniform system of written or printed records anywhere. They all contained the principle's of 'several distinct systems. This is true'of Egypt as well as Mexico. A ..majority of the hieroglyphics of nomenclature -in Egypt were based on the rebus, or syin- phonograph, where the pictures give the sound, but not the sense. This implies the existence of two languages in that country, one which gave the meaning and the othe.r;tto which the picture belonged. , A • "The same system was used in Mexico. The hieoroglyph for Huaseyacac, pronounced Wasliyca, is a twig of tho huase fruit coming out of the" nb'sb,' or yacac, of a human face. . - •• > "Tho meaning, however, is quite different. Wash .or Washu must have been the name of^_the god_ of war, and, as Kak, or Cne, means ' red, 'and the Culwas were 'red men, •Huaseyacac must have meant the Red God of War. The peculiarity of the word is that it presents what we may call the Scandinavian dialectic formula of :i name of great antiquity found in many coun-' tries and not originally belonging'to the red men of Europe arid northern Africa. In these peoples, who can be directly traced to the mingling of the three primitive savagC' races with the prehistoric white races of .northern Europe, the Axes, or Asar, we have the root Wash, as in Washington - Waslioe and like words. The older i .trm was Bas, as in Basinghall, Eashinsto '56,Bass, Basqueses, etc., in actual ' no; aencla- ture, and l>es, Bessaria, Boi-sa, in ancient times. Huitzilipoctli was a title and not a name, n'ml : the lolling tongue is. hieoroglyphio-for the word Lap, showing that Huitzilipochtli ivas the demon Lap, or the god .of war, as viewed by the red races. This hieroglyphic is based upon the' 1 Saxon word Lap, to take up water -with tho tongue, and is proof positive of the ' Scandinavian origin of the Aztecs.,, "Going further into this we have found that the hieroglyph' 'for Lap wiis the rabbit, because ' "Lepus rebuses with Lap, and we infer from that that the rabbit god of the Algonqnins is a proof that the Aztecs must have had in- tercou,rse by some means.with, the civilized races from whom the Romans pot their word lepus. In every nation that refused to eat the hare there must have been similar intercourse, no matter under what pretext it wate declined as an article of food." A Pica for t»ic Shy Guuic Klrd Wfathcr In Bad, When snow covers- the ground and sleet envelops trees anil shrubs innny birds, of various kinds seek the f;irci- | hou.se and its vicinity. They seei:i to know'that in t.heir extremity man is their friend. Their confidence is not misplaced; they an: liberally fed by different members of the household nntjl . the emergency has passed and they are again nWc to make their own living. . These birds corne to man's abode for : protection as well as for food, and after j tho cravings of hunger are appeased i they slay around the dwelling, feeling ; that the predatory hawk, fox, owl and the heartless, murderous gunner of this season will not recklessly venture to assail them. lYcquouUy these birds return season-after season to the same homesteads. By reason of their appeal to mankind birds of this ulass seldom die from the effects of hard winters, says the Baltimore Sun, That tiic great game bird, the partridge, excessively wild and timid, iloes not, when privation comes, sock man's homestead like 'the birds mentioned abovu, though in extremes of weather a -covey of partridges may be seen about the strawyard.s where cattle arc housed and fed. Thuir presence about such places is proo'f of their sufferings, for they only leave their accustomed 'haunts and fastnesses when sorely pressed for want of food. These birds have been found dead iu severe weather, poisoned from eating laurel to satisfy their hunger. Clothed in beautiful plumage of. hues in accord with the ground, they escape .fairly well from the" hawk in ordinary times, but they star<d- : out in bold relief on the snow and fall an easy prey to the tireless, insatiate hawk, as well as the fox and owl.. It is against the law to cither shoot or trap this noble bird at this season, and farmers and others should see that no marauding in this line is done. In addition to preserving this gallinaceous bird the agriculturist knows that the partridge is Wie farmer's friend, and that he destroys myxi- ads of injurious insects, thus protect- ng the grain crops and the fruit from nauch'injury. Everyone, whether resident of the city or country, loves to hear the call "Bob White," on bright summer days through harvest time and early in the fall, when the young ones are nearly grown, and to watch' ,he male partridge perched on the 'ence as he gives out the note. It s impossible to look at him then with- >ut foe-ling love and admiration stir the icart. He is in trouble now.

Haniko of Japan, in public at any rate, manifests the same degree of religions veneration for the sacred person of the, mikado that is exacted from the remainder of his subjects, yet she is credited with displaying in private something very much akin to contempt for .his semi-divine attributes. Whereas he'is distinctly dull- and heavy, both physically and mentally, his wife, on the contrary, is renowned for her cleverness, her enlightened ideas, and • for hdr strength of character. In Japan, as" elsewhere in the orient, women are.^expected to remain obsequiously in t,he background and to follow meekly in the .wake of their husbands, but Empress Haruko takes the lead, and,'as-=the;'de'eidedly better half of the two, makes her husband yield to'her'superior intelligence and influence. • - . i To her. more than an'yone.else belongs the credit for the extraordinarily Wpid advance of Japan in the'"path of westr ern civilization, and in'-her efforts.in~"! behalf of her picturesque country she 1 ! is greatly assisted by the advice of Em* i TVnltrcss In a nurului; Hotel. It docs not require either mature years : or an exalted position in life to develop the qualities that make a hero or heroine. One of the bravest and most resolute deeds that we have ever read of was performed only recently by a girl of sixteen who was serving as a dining-room girl in a hotel at Harper, Kan:, cays' Youth's Companion. At;fo.ur o'clock on the morning of the 16th of November a fire broke out at this.,.hotcl. In its rooms slepf thirty- seven guests. . A strong wind was blowing, and the fire spread rapidly. Irione of the rooms two dining-room girls'were asleep. One of them, whose name is Maud Schermerhorn, woke half- suffocated bysmoke. Her companion was insensible; and Ma.ud, though herself half-suffocated, helped tbe other out of the window, and herself leaped out, cutting Tier flesh badly on the glass as she did so. She dragged her companion to a place where she would be safe. Then she saw *hat the flames were enveloping the house, and that the guests had riot been alarmed. The task of doing this she took upon herself. Breaking through a fastened lower window, and again cutting herself severely, she crept back into the hotel, the halls of which were thick with choking smoke. She could not walk ...upright against the smoke; but getting down on her hands and kpees, her.face to the floor, she crept through the ' corrfdors, from room to room, arming^aU in the house. Everywhere she left a trail of blood behind;, her from her bleeding flesh. When the Jast guest had opened the door of his room in response to her call, he found her lying helpless in a pool of her own blood. Though he himself was Half-smothered, this guest picked up the girl, and, groping, his way, reached the street with, her in safety ': No life was lost in the fire; but is is said that several people would -undoubtedly have perished but for this heroic girl's efforts. : — She (at the dinner)—''I think our hostess is the most perfect lady I ever Baw." : He— : "Yes: but I notice that she made One-break early in the evening. 7 ' She—"Sb&'always does that.

For lighting the castle four methods are available, all of which are more Or less in operation, viz. : (3 as, oil, candles and the electric light, while for warming and cooking, wood, coal and gas arc used. During the residence Of the court some hundreds of persons are in tbe castle besides the royal family and the visitors, consequently the adequate provision of all these processes is of a somewhat gigantic nature, keeping many servants constantly employed. For the general lighting and heating, gas and coal are adopted, but this is not so in the quecn's.own rooms, nor in an}' other of the royal apartments^ In tbe matter of fires for her own rooms the queen strictly banishes coal. She has a confirmed preference for wood only. Special supplies of wood have to be obtained for this purpose from the thickly-timbered hills a few miles up the river, above Windsor. where a number of workmen arc regularly employed on tin's task. The timber, when felled and rouffhly trimmed on the spot, is brought down to a wharf ou tbe riverside, where it is dressed and cut up into blocks of fixed sizes. It is then stacked to get seasoned, and as required supplies are brought down to the castle for consumption in the queen's rooms. Gas and oil are excluded fro rn her majesty's apartments. Here light is provided by means of wax candles, all of one special pattern, their daily removal being tbe duty of a special official. In some of the other apartments gas is utilized, and in some other parts oil lamps arc burned, gas supplying the quarters of the staff generally. Moreover, although the queen bars all but candles for her own private use, she has permitted the introduction of an electric light plant This is placed tinderneath the north terrace, and is in charge of a special engineer, under the general supervision of a prominent electrician. This plant has never been largely used, but the light has been led into and applied to the main corridors, to one or two of the royal apartments, and to the library. A year or so ago the original plant was replaced by newer and more powerful machinery, which would probably suffice to light the whole of the castle if the que<ya so willed, "but this has not yet occurred, nor is she likely to sanction it. Electric bells and telephones abound throughout the castle, but electric light is allowed very limited play. The coal required for Windsor castle chiefly comes from certain collieries in north Wales, brought in trainloads of perhaps five hundred tons at a time, From the station it is carted to the castle, in various parts of which are deep and spacious cellars into which it is tipped. Thence it is conveyed as required to the different rooms and offices. numbering some hundreds. Lifts are almost unknown in the castle, consequently the coal has to be hoisted from the cavernous cellars and carried hither and thither by coal porters. The replenishing of the fires is carried ont upon the most careful and efficient plan, footmen and other higher servants receiving the coal from tbe porters and passing it to the ro3 r al apartmentsat intervals throughout the day, Each official connected with heating and lighting the castle has his allotted duties and recognized position, and thus the residence of the highest lady ELEPHANTS • TENDING BABIES.

Weakness appeals powerfully to the friendly protection of the strong, and even among brutes— at least, the nobler kind. — tbe appeal is not often in vain. Jn the curious rolatioii between monster and midget we not unfre- quently see the fable of the lion and the mouse repented without words. There is nothing by any menus uncommon or incredible in the stories which, have been reported about the children of a mahout being cared for by tho mahout's elephant. The whole family of the mahout bc- como, as it were, parasites to the elephant. by whom they earn their living. 1 have seen a baby placed by its mother systematically under the elephant's care, and within reach of its trunk, • while the mother went to fetch water or to get wood or material to cook the family dinner. Xo jackal or wolf would be likely to pick up and. carry . off a baby who was thus confided to the care of an-*ilephatit, but most pco- '. pie who have lived ,-ilife in the jungle* know how very possible it is for a jackal or a wolf to carry oft" a baby ' when lying in a hut when the mother's back is turned. The children thus brought up in the companionship of an elephant become familiar with him, and take all kinds of liberties with him, which tho elephant secm.s to endure on the principle that it does not hurt him, while it .amuses- the child. You see n little naked black child, about two feet hig-h, standing on the elephant's bare and taking it down to the water ba'thp, shouting all the time in the most unbecoming terms of native- abusive language. , On arriving at the water the' elephant, ostensibly in obedience to the child's command, lies down and enjoys bimscK, just leaving a part of his body, like a small island, above water, on which the young child stands and yells, and yells all the more if he has several companions of his own age, all in charge of their elephants, all wallowing in the water around him. If tho child slips off his island, the elephant's trunk promptly replaces him in safety. The little urchins, as they grow up, become first mates to mahouts, and eventually arrive at the dignity of be- jng mahouts themselves. — Pittsburgh. Dispatch. _ Another .1IUntn^ Link- On K. Dubois, of the army service of the Dutch Indies, reports from Java the discovery of some important "miss^' ing link'' evidence. Some fossil remains recently upturned in the ande- sitic tuffs of the island are regarded as indicating the existence there of an] . intermediate form between man and; the anthropoid apes. The bones of this : , erect and upright skeleton include the' upper part of a skull, a very perfect femur, and an upper molar tooth.
