IMMIGRATION to the United States is shown by statistics to be decreasing. Whether this should be a matter ol congratulation or not, there can be little doubt that ills viewed by many with a decree of satisfaction. It ia not because im increase in population Is not desired/for there la abundance of rontn for good, honest industrious people ia all piria of the country. It cannot be denied, however, that many of those who reach our shores from foreign lands are not desirable additions to the population j.nd itis'on account of thtse thatemi- rantB aro not 50 heartily welcomed as formerly. There were 1S9.2S2 alien arrivals in thf. soven months ending Fob. 1, 1894 while in the same icriod endlnjr in 1895 there were only 113.67-i. This shows a decroase f immigration in one year of 70.207. There hud been a slight falling oil In orovioua yea^s but by co means to marked a decrease. It Is unfortunate however that the decrease is larger from the countries which usually furn- the most desirable class, The decrease from Germany, France, Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden, boiag 47 per cent. There is also a decrease, although less marked, from Ireland and other parts of Great Britain, The only countries which show aa increase aro JRussia and Austria, acd the recent arrivals from those countries are principally of the unwelcomed classes. There has been a great change from the times of the early 'eighties when immigration was at its flood and when Inducements wore held out to foreigners from all climes to flock »o om Choree. In 1882 alone nearly 800,000 Immigrants came to the United States. The falling off has been great.

The tariff tinkering has had ite opposite effect as the farmers well kuow,.and as they showed by their votes last fall. Along this line the Sun Francisco Chronicle says: An attempt had been made to creaU the impresoion that tht removal ol tfce duiy from graio bugs was fur Uu benefit of tho fai-mor, 'but he has been disuncil} shown that too creation ol grain bag manufacturing has hud A greater inlluenoo in reducing price loan the wiplrg; out ol the tariff possibly could. The sivmo argument made in favor of free grain bags has been urged by the Democrats when discussing tho duties on coal, iron and other articles. Democratic Free-Traders cuns'aotly aaAerxea itmt ihe farmer was being injured by the protective duties levied to promote American manufuct s, but the evl dence la overwhelming that tho stimulus given to the manu(nciurlDg industry not only greatly roduoed the prices of all kinds of manufactured xrtlcles to the agricultural consumer, but at the same time gave the agr cul* tural producer a bipger market for blf products. The only thing accomplish* od by Perkins when he voted with the Democrats to put grain bags on tb? free list was 10 close uo a C&liforni". fuctory that pave emoloyment to over 300 working peoole, and at tbe came itmesimn'1fi"d for tbe grain bae im- oortere 'hp j"b of cornering the market and cbnrpiDg'hpfr ownrJces. A pale-faced young 1 woman with delicate features and auburn hair sat alongside of the telephone closet in the read- ing-reonj of an up-to\vn hotel the other diiy reading a book, says the Sew York Sun. ••\Vill you please ring- up 320 Spring fen 1 me?" nskocl a j-ounj jusi come in fi-om the lobby. The tone of his voice was familiar and palronixinfr, and he looked down at her with a very friendly smile. She, how-over, did not s?nile in return, but looked extremely bored. \Vithont making any reply to his question, she went into tho closet and rang: the telephone. The young 1 man stood just outside the door and loaned against it. "This is a lovely—" he began, but was interrupted by the girl's reaching on I her hand, apparently in a median- it-a: way, and pulling- to the door. He Sot out of the way just in time, and stood hit ing the ends of his mustache. I'rusL'Dlly she pushed open the door a pu'n. "o-2!) is at tho telephone," she said. "Kindly ask if Mr. .Too Jones is there/' he snid very sweetly. She shut ihc door a gain and addressed the person at the other end of the telephone. Presently she wheeled around 111 her chair, opened the door, and said: "They say they don't know any such person." There was a frown on her face, but it not in any way disconcert the young man. "Oh, pshaw," hu slid, "I must hare made a mistake in the number. Ncv^r mind; how much is it'?" "Fifteen cents." He pulled out a roll of bills, which he displayed ostentatiously, and then thrust back into his pocket again. From another poekct he then drew out the exact change, which he handed to her. At the same time he beamed on her in a languishing manner, but, as her face was averted, all this effort to impress her was lost. As soon as she received tho money she resumed her scat, recorded the transaction on a slip of paper, picked up her hook arid L r4- turned to her rending. The young- man did not'lcave, however, but tried to engage her in conversation. "I am awfully sorry to have put you to so mueli trouble needlessly," he began, "but—" At this moment he was interrupted by a sharp-eyed, strongly built man who had been watching him for some- I time from a corner of the room. He | had stepped up unnoticed and sudden- j ly ran against tho young man as if by accident. !'Bog pardon," he sr.id, as if in a great hurry, "but 1 .want 10*41 Courtland t right away, miss." Tho girl's face brightened as she jumped up and entered the closet again, while tho young man looked savagely at the intruder, and then walked oil disgusted. As soon as he had gone the stout man tapped on tho window of tho closet and winked significantly, and the telephone girl called into the transmitter: "Nevermind, central, it was only another one of those dudes. He has gone now, thank goodness," The stout man walked back to his corner, nnd the girl resumed her reading. Every day similar scenes are enacted, although sometimes there 'is delay before tho rescuer arrives, owing to his being busy elsewhere. "You see," he said in explanation of one such occurrence, "there is a lot of | well-dressed fellows who come in here and patronize the bar more or less, who would like to flirt with the girl, and it wouldn't do to have any rumpus about it. So ^whenever I see any of them around I stocr in here nnd watch them. When they get too fresh I give them this <sort of a song and dance. It always works, too." seek to obtain by artiticial means what nature has denied scorns unworthy a reasoning being-. And yet it is the rule and not the exception to so squeeze and compress these unfortunate pedal extremities that they become a source of constant pain and annoyance, instead of serving- the purpose for which they were originally intended. So extensively is the custom practiced that a woman whose feet aro innocent of corns, bunions, or other unsightly excrescences is a rarity in the world of fashion, while even among the lower classes the tig-lit &hoc is becoming far more general than it once was. Speaking- generally, the foot of a little child is absolutely perfect in shape man who had -ind proportions. H seems a pity that tho approach of womanhood should be the signal for the commencement of the torturing- process, during which the pretty ditiwled member is gradually transformed into the monstrosity which the fashionable foot too often is. Although wo realize that the classic model is no recognized standard of beauty, it is possible to preserve tho natural contour of tho foot and still ivuder it lovely to modern eyes. We marvel at the cruelty of the Chinese mother, who arrests the growth of her baby's feat by encasing them iu splints and bandages, but we ignore the fact thai, the western mother is but a shade loss cruel who thoughtfully permits her growing- daughter to wear a shoo that is too small, or that is in no sense adapted to the shape oC her foot. Too much attention cannot well be given to the footwear of 3'oun;; g-irls, since much of the comfort of their after life depends upon the caro which they receive during 1 their earl3 r years. Ready-made shoes should be studiously avoided, for in the majority of oases they are constructed upon linos diametrically opposed to nature's plan, while individual peculiarities can, of course, receive no consideration whatever. The sole of the ancient sandal may be taken as a model of the required shape, since it follows all the graceful curves of the foot and allows free play of all the muscles. The danger attending the uso of ill- fitting shoes, as well for grown persons as for children 1 , cannot be overestimated. If tho foot is naturally larg-e at is the most arrant fol ly to attempt to reduce its size, since compression is inevitably followed by more or less serious deformity, while not infrequently it is attended by disease. Shoes that, are sharply pointed at tho toe should be avoided by wide-footed women, for not only is the result—viewed from whatever standpoint—undeniably , but the shoo will always spread or split after it has been worn a few times. High heels, too. tend to permanently widen, the ball of the focjt, owing- to the full weight of the body being thrown forward, while they aro a fruitful source of enlarged too joints and ingrowing 1 nails, to say nothing- of greater and 1 essor evils. It is scarcely necessary to say that no large or irremediably ill-shaped foot should be encased in a colored or otherwise showy boot. I.n this case black should be adopted upon all occasions, and always in tho softest an d most pliable ol fabrics. Aggressive decoration in any form will invariably attract attention to the size or deformity of the foot and should ther ofore be avoided. Long skirts, though a disadvantage in many instances, are decidedly advantageous in this, inasmuch as they can always bo rolied upon—particularly if they are weu weighted and beflounced —to "cover a multitude of sins."—I Y.

Itll Not Impo.i«lble With Care nnd Fropor Boots* It is safe to aver that there is no more important part of the toilet than that which concerns the feet, although it seems usually to receive the least consideration. Why so little care should be deemed necessary in the treatment of those -useful app«ndajfes, whose duty Ft is to labor so arduously, is difficult to determine; but the fact remains that the avcrag-e woman takes little or no thought of their delicate construction until they beg-in to rebel—as they must sooner or later—against their long continued abuse.' ' Poets have sung and' novelists haVe raved about the dainty feet of their respective heroines until wo have come to rejrard small feet as.irrofutable evi- denco of refinement and aristocratic birth. Fallacious reasoning-, indeed, ii this, and responsible for an incalculable amount of self-inflicted torture, silently endured for the sake of that most potent of human vices^—personal vanity.

In the few little gardens of New York an occasional snow man has been challenging the admiration of neighborhoods. Some carters have even been ringing doorbells .where they knew children lived and offering to leave their ablcn wares for a consideration. The police are very watchful for these fellows, however, for it is a. misdemeanor to empty, a wag-on- load of snow in a New York street. It is not unusual for snow to be heaped up at a dinner table on some silver tray or other, with roses and other flowers arranged about it. —January 8, the anniversary of tba defeat of the British army ander Gen.

Tbe Orlp-ln of ••Out-.l.di-r," "You're » Dalny" and "Too Tliln-" "Dun" is a word whoso meaning- is now known to everyone who understands the English language. About the beginning of tho contnry. wi.ys the Boston Post, a constable in England named John Dun bcc;ime celebrated as a first-class collector of bad accounts., When others would fail to collect a bad debt, Dun would be sure to got it out' of the debtor. It soou passed into a current phrase that when a person- owed money and did not pay when, asked, ho would have to be "Dunned." Hence it soon became common m such. cases to say: "You will havo to dun So-cud-so if you wish to colli-ct your money." Until the nomination of Franklin Pierco for the presidency the word "outsider'' was unknown. The committee on credentials came to make its- report and could not got into the halT because of the <;row<3 of people who wore not members of tho convention.

Let me call you my daisy, as It is so refreshing to find one in these- corrupt days so innocent and unso-' phisticatcd. My dear Copperfield, tho' daisies of the field are not fresher than you."
