This Grover Cleveland's record. From March, 1SS9, to March, 1891, the first two years of the present Republican administration, the public debt was reduced by §265,000,000. Comparisons are odious, but in this instance the comparison in favor of Benjamin Harrison's record amounts to §123,463,700. It is the Republican against the Democratic record." SUNDAY MOKNING. MARCH 22. A SCHEME THAT FAILED. What women admire most in men has been a theme upon which poets have sung 1 and writers .have . written from time immemorial It is certain , that the masculine race has never solved the problem for even at the present day the' range of experiment is great and includes powders, charms and dudish attire' as well as - personal accomplishments and manly' bearing. It seems to have been settled, however, that any emotion at all which could be aroused could be turned into the proper direction and so pity and even hate have been - r eagerly encouraged. The younger members of society have been more extravagant in their efforts for admiration since the union of older members like the coming together of the scraggy apples .at the .bottom of the bin near the -•close of winter,-has frequently been devoid of any question of deepseated admiration.: The latest sensation therefore is the result of a scheme - devised by a youth of ten der years to •capture Iqnged'for affections. Henry JPoe who lives .near Edinburgh in this i -State after an evening-with the object 1 of his earnest attention was evidently ' -convinced that his conversational s ^powers, and personal appearance were inadequate to captivate and that some -additional attraction must be 'arrang- «d. Doubtless the young lady had dropped-some remark indicating an admiration for .bravery.. Henry retired to-the shed, where he had left liis horse and presently was apparently engaged'in deadly contest with a. •eecret'foe. Shots were heard and the tnoise of a fierce struggle was too plainly, audible. The family was aroujsed and Henry was rescued just as he had vanquished the enemy and put him to inglorious flight. Examination revealed a badly torn suit of clothes with bullei holes through the coat and of course Henry was a hero. Unfortunately for him, however, there were suspicious circumstances which •finally compelled a confession that the f gbt was imaginary and the injuries self-inflicted, and reluctantly it came <out that it was a scheme to capture the young ladys affections. Henry thus failed ignobly in his ambition tut gained some notoriety by his novel experiment. A. Demoralized Party. The Democratic papers, which have been steadily insisting that the reciprocity treaty with Brazil gave us advantages that it was impossible that Brazil would ratify it, now are preparing to whirl about and declare that after all Brazil gets the best of us and has outwitted Mr, Elaine.

AN IMPORTANT MEETING, 5 KANSAS CITY, Mo., March 21.—Preparations for. holding the western states commercial congress April 14 to April 1.8 in this city have been about completed. The railways will give reduced rates and arrangements have been completed for the entertainment of about 1,000 guests. The idea of holding such a congress originated in the Kansas legislature, and invitations to other states were authorized by a concurrent resolution. The original idea was to have the congress composed of the eighteen great agricultural states of the Mississippi valley, but at the solicitation of Mississippi and Alabama these two states were authorized to send delegates. • The legislatures of nine states appointed delegates and the governors of the-others are expected to send representatives. Invitations to be present and-' address the convention have been accepted by Senators Stewart and Ingalls, Congressmen Mills and Dockery and Messrs. Warner of Ohio, and Donnelly of Minnesota. Invitations have been sent to President Harrison, ex-Presidents Hayes and Cleveland, Henry \Yatterson, the governors of the states to be represented and many other prominent men. The object of the congress is to consider the needs of the west, and some of the topics for consideration will bo: General business and agricultural depression, cause and remedy; legislation as affecting commerce, transportation and finance; transportation and improvement of waterways, gulf and Pacific ports; free coinage, metallic money and paper currency; uniform commercial laws; cause and effects of business combinations and trusts; -reciprocity and international trade extension. Are you a believer in woman's clubs? I am not. Women is not a parliamentary creature. She see no reason why she should not "sass back" and grow personal any time she wants, and she has no hesitation whatever in tellin" 4 of her committee work, of whispering around of who has been blackballed, and of showing that she herself is a very leaky vessel. A WOMEN ON WOMAN'S CLUBS. I was talking with a woman the other day, and she said this: "A year ago I was tempted and f&ll—fell into being a member of the -Woman's Press Club.' I had been duly warned by the men of my family that I would bitterly regret this, but I believed that men knew nothing. 1 thought, 'Here, at last, is the ideal club. It will be composed of women writers, and wherever there is one who needs a lift, the 'helping hand' in the way of giving her the name or an editor who wants work, or the kindly voice in the way of offering her a suggestion, will be found. They will be bright women, they will be business-like women. I shall find meeting them once a month a pleasure, while, as for the business meeting, of course, women who earn their own living will know how to conduct these properly.' HOW WOMEN BUN A CLUB. • -The original officers were elected by acclamation. Then, for several months, the club worked along without a constitution in a very aimless manner, but still I hoped against hope that it would eventually prove of some value. Last autumn circulars were sent out announcing that there would be an election for vice-president, treasurer, secretary, and some other officers. No mention in this circular was made about the election of a president, and yet when we got there we found there was to be one, and wo hadn't sense enough to know that the whole thing was illegal, because no notice had been given of it. NOT ALL GUILELESS "WOMAN. "One woman, who was energetic in her desire to see some good officers in, was asked to be a teller of votes—I think that's what you call it—and she took the position, though she said she didn't want to, and never realized until, the next day, when her husband told' her, that the thing was done to get her off the floor, so she couldn't work for her candidate, and that she ought to have refused to do it. He laughed at her a good bit,, and taunted her with it because she was the daughter of a politician'! Another, time, a letter came from some woman in the West asking- for the address of some syndicates—a perfectly proper question to put to such a club. The president read it out in a derisive manner and seemed to think it a great joke, and while tbe blood in my veins was boiling at this a Southern woman said she would take it and send the woman the addresses desired. "Women in the club. WERE SUPPOSED TO BE WIUTERS of something. Now, I have something to say against people who write advertisements; it is a money-making business, and one that .undoubtedly calls for a vivid imagination, but still I do not think it is journalism. I have nothing to say against a dear little soul who wrote her first article after she joined the club; still, I don't see wherein came her claim for admission; but I do think it r unny that women OXFORD WINS. OVEK one million soldiers still sur-vive-the 'war. 66,500 of these were _in June .last residents of Indiana. Cambridge Beaten by a Quarter ol a Length in the Great ^University Boat Race. LONDON, March 21.—The forty-eighth of the famous boat races between the crews of Oxford and Cambridge universities has been decided. It was won. by a quarter : of a lenffth by Oxford. The time of the Oxford crew was 22 minutes. The race was over the usual course, which starts at a point about 100 yards above Putney bridge, near London, and finishes about the same distance above the ship inn at Mortlake. The distance is about four and a quarter miles. ' who have only written checks, or who are anxious to get in with a literary set—save the mark!—are eligible for membership. I tried-to do my best in that station in which I had been placed by vote. I wanted neither ducats nor kudos from such a club but I. got an immense knowledge from various types of women. WOMEN MET IX A CLUB. "For the first time in-my life, I met the woman who was determined to hold on to her position like a leech, 'who doesn't intend to do any work, and who can't add anything to a clubby her name, but who clings, and clings, and even death won't put her out—death doesn't want her; she is the woman who is ruled by the last idle gossip she has heard, and who is wildly anxious, by making new acquaintances, to take the " sponge of forget- falness and wipe off the marks on the slate of-her life. I met the woman who is a cat clothed in cashmere. She looks at you inquiringly, wonders what- she ought to do, then goes home and writes you a letter, and tells you what you ought to do. She is willing to give everybody advice about their work, and she does her own very poorly. Then I met the other type, THE 'WOMAN WHO FLATTERS, and flatters, and flatters—who writes you a letter,'and tells you that your genius is so great, you ought not to be wasting it on the work that you are doing; Later on- you discover' she has .made an application for that very work. I'd discovered, too, how women, following the fashion of O'Connell, will drive a four-in-hand through a constitution without a wink. After all this you will do as I did—come home, a,nd sit down by your consolation—the man who advised you not to do it—tell him of the envy, hatred, malice, and all u a charitableness that exists in a woman's club, and find he is loo much of a man, and his manners are too gentle for him to say, 'I told you so.' But you will kave a small weep, and announce to him that you have done with it. Any advantages? Yes, there were three. I got acquainted with a dear little doctor, who was as loyal as a giant, and wasn't afraid to speak the truth: with a Western woman whose heart is true, vrhose words are honest, and who is as big of brain as she is of heart. With another woman whose great dark eyes saw all the meannesses, and who felt as I did, ihat touching pitch she had been denied." I said A WOMAN TOLD M£ THIS. So it was. It was that familiar Mend who looks at me from the mirror, and, as I shake my head sadly, her lips moved as did mine, repeating with me, "Stick to your traditions—abhor women's clubs as you do cigarette?, bad manners, and petty spites." This is the time for repentance, and I do much repent my ever having had a yearning to belong to a club; and the story is told that no other woman I known may fall by the wayside with the same innocence and fervor that I did; no good Samaritan came to pick me up, but a violent reaction of common sense set in, and in that way and that alone was I saved. A VENUS-LIKE TETTICOAT. Petticoats are much more interesting than clubs, at least they ought to be, and the very newest of all might be assumed by Venus as she arose from the sea and would , harmonize with her general surroundings. It is made of pale pink satin brocaded with green, the faintest of shades, and trimmed with four deep frills of lace that look like sea-foam. Its intense gorgeousness is enough to make any woman dishonest—there at once is a protest against a club. If I carried the money-bag, I'd steal its money and buy that petticoat! THE NEWEST SlMlDfG BONNET. The newest hat, the hat which every pretty young girl ought to have for Easter day, is called the Greuze or shepherdess, and is the most absolutely fetching thing you ever saw. It is a little straw thing, bent in front to form a scallop or two, with a wreath of roses under the brim, and a knot of ribbons on top and long velvet ribbons hanging down at the back. If j'ou really want to know what it looks like, look at the pictures of shepherdesses on Watteau fans. Ot course such a hat must be worn by a very pretty girl, but nowadays everybody is young and pretty, because tbe taking care of one's self is an art more thoroughly understood than it ever was before.. THE LATEST FEMININE COLORS. Talking of the fashions, it is gravely announced that two shades of blue will be most in vogue: garter blue and St. Patrick blue. I have always thought green the shade specially dedicated to the saint about whom it is so positively announced that he was a gentleman, but it is just possible he may have had some blue affiliations. Garter blue is a dark, rich tone, not at all trying, but a little brighter than the deep navy. St. Patrick's blue is a paler shade, touching on the Mazarin. The first is probably much more becoming than, the last. Blue is a good color for the summer, because it al- svas looks cool, and so for that reason, all the pretty girls are likely to wear it. However, if THE PRETTIEST GIRL OF ALL wants to look most in fashion, she must get herself up after one of the pictures f''om an old-fashioned book of beauty. Her hair must be curled, and on it she must wear a sherperdess 1 hat, with a wreath of roses inside of it, while about her waist must be a deep girdle that will make her look a little short-waisted. She can pose with a, rose in her hand, although when she is without her hat, the rose may find- a place in her hair just behind her ear. If she is really as charming looking as she ought to be, the artist in popular favor will do a picture of her, exhibit, and she • will have a notoriety that would have frightened her grandmother, although she permitted her face to show in the old-fashionsd book. WOMEN WHO TOSE FOR ARTISTS'. The mania that women have for posing for artists is something astounding. It began in . Paris, it went to London, and now it is here. The daughter of a well-known American had her picture painted by a celebrated artist, a picture in which beside her birthday suit, she held a mask up to her face—that-.was her costume. That picture has been photographed and is very generally sold through the United , Highest of all in Leavening Power.—W. S. Govt Report, Aug. 17, 1889. ABSOLUTE!^ PWRB States, and yet it is not known here, as it is in Paris, exactly who the 'girl is. I do not think .New York women aspire to this—at least I hope they do not; but when they begin this wretched cant of doing things "/or art sake," with a soulful soul and a capital A, I feel as if the impossible were to be expected. THINGS TO BE RENOUNCED, How have you gotten along with your renunciations? I heard a man wish that some of the old women who give life to dead scandals, and who talk over, with morbid aad ghoulish glee, Ihe misfortunes of Others, would renounce this world—the flesh having renounced them and the devil having no use for them, and made me think of what could be renounced. Women who dye their hair might remounce the chemist. Lawyers and doctors might renounce fibs. Pretty women might renounce flirtations. Actresses might renounce painting their eyes so much. Housekeepers might renounce bad cooking. Men might renounce gambling. Women might renounce indigestible sweets. There are a good many things that might be renounced, but please, good Mr. Editor, don't renounce BAB. BIG STREET CAR DEAL. Bf&Jcct to Amalgamate Lines In American Cities—Rumor* of the Formation of an English and American Syndicate 'with a Capital of $50,000,000. NEW YORK, March 21.—A syndicate of capitalists, English and American, in which ex-President Cleveland, William T. Whitney. Daniel S. Lament, and, it is said, a prominent Chicago street railway magnate are interested, are reported to be pushing to completion a scheme which looks to the amalgamation of the street car interests of several of the leading cities in this country, from New York to San Francisco. This syndicate, which, it is .reported in certain financial circles, will have a capital of at least $50,000,000, seeks to control the principal street car lines in New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, Pittsburgh, Chicago, St. Louis and San Francisco and transform such as now depend upon animal power into thoroughly equipped eable lines. PROCTOR TO RESIGN. A \fnnlilngtoa Correspondent Pj-edivta .1 Cabinet Change to Occur. Soon. NEW YORK, March 21.—A special to a. morning paper from Washington says: "The first break in President Harrison's cabinet, except that caused by the death of Mr. Wmdom, will shortly occur by the resignation of Eedfie'ld Proctor,secretary of war. This-' will be a great surprise to the country, and many will be loth to believe it, for of all the cabinet changes speculated upon this is one that has never before been suggested. The statement, however, is based upon information .obtained from, perfectly trustworthy sources, and may be accepted as absolutely true." " DIAMOND JO'S" "ESTATE. It Is -Valued at Nearly lSlO;OOp,OOO—OM Employe* Provided for. : CHICAGO, March 21.—An inventory of the estate of "Diamond Jo' ! Reynolds, who died a short time ago in a tent on. one of his mining claims in Arizona, is being prepared in this city and is about completed. The inventory shows the estate to exceed 58,000,000 and to reach, almost to 310,000,000. "Diamond Jo" died before he had time to sijnv his- will, but his wife will carry out his. dying wishes. He leaves S50,000 apiece to six or seven of his trusted- employes- and a large sum to found a magnificent training school for boys.- -,- Oreat Fire in JapanV SAX FRANCISCO, March, 21.—By the steamer Oceanic, from Hong Kong and Yokohama it is learned that over 200> houses were destroyed by fire in Yokohama February 2fl.
