CANDIDATES NAMED. Cleveland and Thurman For Presi dent and Vice-President. Tttm Deosoeratie National Convention Closes Its Work The Platform Finally Agreed Upon ana Adopted Other Resolutions Adjournment. Second Day. St. Lours, June 6. At 10:22 this morn- log tbe emocratic . national convention was called to order by tbe temporary chair man. Prayer was offered by Rev. J. K- 3reene,of Missouri, who especially invoked the Divine blessing upon tbe members of the convention who bad been entrusted by Vie people of tbe States of the Union with jhe performance of an important duty. Mr. Walsh, of Alabama, chairman of tbe committee on credentials, submitted the re-Jort of the committee on the Dakota con tested delegates. Tbe committee nnas in favor of V. F. Steele and O. C. Maguire, of the Church faction. The committee also finds in favor of admitting Messrs. Dula- ney and Garnett as delegates from Alaska. The report was agreed to. The chairman then called for reports from the commiltee on organization, and Mr. Cassidv. of Pennsylvania, its chair man, reported that it had unanimously agreed upon General Patrick A. Collins, of Massachusetts, for permanent chairman. Tbe announcement was received with loud applause and pheers. H. H. Ingersoll, of Tennessee, was announced as secretary, and one delegate from each State, as vice- president and one as assistant secretary. The committee further recommend that the rules of the previous convention should be in force during the present convention, with the modification that no State shall change its vote lor President and Vice-President until the call of -States has been completed. The report of the committee was agreed to. When the - report of the committee had been completed and adopted, Chairman White announced that he would appoint Chairman Barnum, of the National Com mittee, Roswell P. Flower, of New York, and John CDay, of Missouri, a committee to escort the permanent chairman of tbe convention to the stage. Tbe announce Til en t of each of these names was the signal for a burst of hearty applause. Barnum's name was received with especial warmth and cries of "Barnum" were mingled with the general shouts. Just as the committee was proceeding to the place where Mr. Collins sat in the Massachusetts delegation, two pages appeared bearing two large floral shields, which had been Bent to the convention to be presented at its permanent organization with the compliments of Hon. David R. Francis, mayor or the city of St. Louis. Tbe largest of these floral offerings, which were placed on the convention stage, was a magnificent shield of Jacqueminot roses, upon which in white roses was inscribed the letter "C." As these testimonials were borne to the platform, Mr. Collins, arm-in-arm with Mr. Barnum and Mr. Flower, marched down the south aisle and his appearance was greeted with a storm of cheers, which grew in volume as he mounted the steps of the platform and stood by the side of - Chairman White, who grasped his hand and waited for the applause to die out. When some-thin g like quiet had been restored Chairman White said : ' " Than king you for the favors you have extended to me and your indulgence accorded me so far in the proceedings of this great convention, I take pleasure in introducing to you your permanent' presiding officer, Hon. Patrick A. Collins, of Massachusetts." Mr. White then passed over to Mr. Collins the silver gavel presented by the Colorado delegation and retired. There was another burst of applause, and when it had subsided Mr. Collins addressed the convention. "'To stand by your favor in tbis p'ace so often tilled by the foremost men in our great party, is a distinction of the highest character and an honor for which I am profoundly grateful," said Mr. Collins. ' In performing the delicate and difficult service to which- you have assigned me I can scarcely hope to justify the wisdom of your choice. X shall at all times need continuance of your indulgence and cour tesy, as well as your full co-operation, to promote order, decorum and good will, un til these proceedings are brought to happy close. We represent in this conven tion mire than thirty millions of the American people. We bear their commission to net lor tl cm and their injunction to act with all the wisdom God has given us to protect and safely guard tbe institutions of the Republic as the fathers founded them. 'Our yonni men under thirty have heard m ire in iheir time of tbe clash of arms and t he echoes of war than o the principles of government. It has been a period of pas- n n, force, impulse and emotional poli'ics. So that we need not wonder that now and then we hear ibe question asked and scarcely answered: 'What difference is there between the two parties!' Every Democrat knows tbe difference. The Dem ocratic creed was not penneJ by Jefferson for a section or a class of tbe people, but for all; not for day or a generation, but ior all time. Thee principles conserved and expanded the Republic in all its better dnys. A strict adiicrence to them will preserve it to the end. So the Democracy of to-day, as in the past, believe with Jel f t-rson in : "First Equal and exact iustic3 to all men of whatsoever Stata or persuasion, religious or political. iseeoud Peace, commerco and honest friendship with all nations; entangling uluances with non;. "Third Support of the State Governments in atl tbeir rights, as the most competent administrators of our domes'ic concerns, an i the surest bulwark aga nst anti-republican tendencies. 'Fourth The preservation of the General Government in its whole constitutional vizor as tbe sheet anchor of our peace and safety abroad. - 'Fifth A jealous care of the right of election by the people, a mild and safe corrective of abuses, which are lopped off by tbe sword of revolution where peaceable means are unprovided. . -' .

False to these principles the great Federal, Whig and Know Nothing parties went down, never to rise again." ; Mr. Collins dwelt upon the past history of the Democratic party and the changed conditions at the present time and wound up with a panegyric upon Grover Cleveland and his Administration. He was frequently interrupted with lond applause, his reference to tbe long and finally suc cessful efforts of the Democratic party to obtain control of tbe reins of Government being especially well received by the assemblage, who loudly applauded. References to the name of Cleveland also pro voked enthusiasm whenever they occurred in the chairman's remarks. At the con clusion of his speech Mr. Collins was again roundly and warmly greeted.. versal suffrage. Mrs. Merryweather's voice was not strong enough to fill the hall and she was frequently interrupted with cries of "Louder," and the band struck up an air before she had concluded, but she remained p luckily at her post until her time had expired. The chairman then stated that he had been informed by the chairman of the com mittee on resolutions that that committee would be unable to report before eight o'clock. The chair announced that the secretary would read a petition for the consideration of tbe convention. The paper proved to be a request from the Woman's convention re cently held in Washington,stating that two of its members had been appointed to make a short talk to the convention on behalf of the women of America, This request was accompanied by a promise that if it were granted by the convention, the representa tives of the woman's organization would only occupy the attention of the convention for ten minutes. J. J. O'Donoghue, of New York, moved that the women be heard, and it was agreed to. T. J. Campbell, of New York, arose and presented a resolution which' he asked to be read. The resolution was as follows: Resolved, That this convention takes occasion to express its unfeigned sorrow at the serious and dangerous illness of General Philip H. Sheridan (applause) and to him whose noble and valiant deeds will ever be enshrined in tbe hearts of his countrymen, we extend our sincere sympathy. We earnestly trust that the great soldier and distinguished patriot will meet with a speedy recovery and that the divine Provi dence may spare him unto this Nation for many years to come. Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions be forwarded to General Sheridan as expressive of the heartfelt sentiments of the Democracy of the united States. Mr. Campbell asked for unanimous con sent for the adoption of the resolutions, The resolutions were adopted by a rising vote with three hearty cheers for the gal lant soldier who is now engaged in his most desperate campaign. Mrs. Merryweather, of the woman's con vention, then mounted the platform and was received with applause. She said that she was delegated to ask that this great convention help to make the practice of this Nation conform to its principle of uni versal suffrage. .Kesoiuuons were then offered for recess until eight o'clock this evening and until ten o'clock to-morrow, when Mr. Henseli, of Pennsylvania, moved that the roll of States and Territories be called and the names of candidates for President and Vice-President be placed in nomination but no ballot be taken until after the commit tee on resolutions shall have reported. The resolution was adopted with applause. When Alabama was called, the chair man said his State had decided to give way to New York. The convention applauded at this announcement, and when the New York delegation presented Daniel Dough erty to mae the nomination, the great hall rang with cheers, which were prolonged and grew in volume for nearly a minute until Mr. Dougherty mounted the platform, when it was redoubled as soon as he could be heard. Mr. Dougherty concluded a characteristic speech, lasting about ten minutes, with the following words: "I nominate Grover Cleveland, of New York, for President of the United States." Unbounded enthusiasm followed. Tbe delegates mounted the chairs, waived their hats, their canes and handkerchiefs. The 10,000 spectators joined in the applause, and the band in the east gallery helped along with their horns and drums, but tbeir blare and noise could scarcely be heard above the general din. As Mr. Doughtery finished his impas sioned speech some one in the west gallery tore aside a curtain which had hidden a portrait of Cleveland, upon tbe face of the great picture of the Capitol building, re vealing to the full gaze of the convention the well-known features of the President. Tbis incident roused the enthusiasm of the convention to a fever heat for the first time during its proceedings. The hall was at once filled with cheer on cheer, and the great body of people in the auditorium, balcony and galleries arose and stood shouting at the top of its voice until the din became almost deafening. Hats were thrown in the air, red bandanas waved from a thousand hands, and white, black and gray bats were frantical ly thrust upon the points of canes and waved until the owners became exhausted. Some one on the stage crowned the bust of the President on the left of the chairman with a laurel wreath, which was the signal for even wilder burst of shouts and cheers than before. j. no cumax oi mis great scene was reached when the banners of all the States were borne by the delegates to the New York: standard and grouped about it. At this the enthusiasm was unbounded. Spec tators and delegates tore tbe red, white and blue bunting from the pillars and from the face of the balconies and waved these improvised banners all over tbe ball for ten minutes. . ' ims remaruaDie outDursi aia not cease until everybody was absolutely exhausted. It was exactly twenty-four minutes before the chair was able to regain control of the convention. . After the storm had . at length been quelled, James A. Mackenzie, of Kentucky, s econded the nomination of Grover Cleve land. Mr. Mackenzie eulogized Mr. Cleveland's Administration in a pleasant manner which secured for him much applause and laughter. Mr. H. D. D. Twiggs, of Georgia, also seconded Mr. Cleveland's nomination. The call of States was then continued but no response until Illinois was reached when Hon. W. R. Morrison arose and being recognized by the convention, received an enthusiastic greeting-.- He merely desired to formally second the nomination in. behalf of the State of Illinois. Kansas responded with a written second commending Cleveland's Administration. When Missouri was called there were loud and long continued cries for Vest, but the Senator failed to resnond. and when New York was reached a similar compliment was tendered to Fellows, but he likewise declined to make a speech. next election. CLEVELAND DOMINATED. Mr. Mackenzie, of Kentucky, moved to suspend the rules and to nominate Grover Cleveland for President by acclamation. The chair put the question and there was returned from tbe convention a thunder ing chorus of ayes. Tbe chair then announced that Grover Cleveland having' received an unanimous vote, was the candidate of tbe Democratic party for the office of President of the United States. When tbe nomination of Cleveland was announced by the chairman, another scene of wild enthusiasm occurred in the conven tion, but delegates and spectators were too nearly exhausted to sustain so pro longed a scene as that which followed Mr. Dougherty's speech. Soon after a motion was put and carried for the convention to adjourn until ten a. ms to-morrow. Third Day. br. Louis, Jane 7. The third day's ses sion of the Democratic National convention was called to order at 10:30 this morning. and prayer was offered by Rev. Dr. Brank-fleld. The chairman then stated that he was advised that the committee on resolutions was ready to report and he intro duced Mr. Henry Watterson, the chairman of the committee. The assemblage testi fied its appreciation of Mr. Watterson by a round of applause. At the suggestion of a delegate from the Old Dominion, three hearty cheers were given for the "Star- eyed Goddess of Reform." Mr. Watterson turning to the chairman said that he had . the honor to report the resolutions unanimously agreed upon by tbe committee on platform. The following platform was then read by Convention Secretary Thomas S. Pettit: - TBI PLATFORM. The Democratic party of the United States In National convention assembled renews the pledges of its fidelity to Democratic faith and reaffirms tbe platform adopted by its repre sentatives in tbe convention of 1884 and in dorses the views expressed by President Cleveland in bis last earnest message to Congress as tbe correct interpretation of that platform noon the question of tariff reduction; and also indorses the . efforts of our Democratic Repre sentatives in Congress to secure a reduction of excessive taxation. Chief among its principles of party faitb are the maintenance of an indissoluble union of free and indestructible States now about to epter upon its second century of unexampled progress and renown; devotion to a plan ot government regulated by a written constitution strictly specifying every granted power and ex pressly reserved to the State or people the en tire un granted residue of power; tbe encourage ment of a jealous popular vigilance, directed to all who have been chosen for brief terms to en act and execute the laws, and are charged with the duty of preserving peace, insuring equality and establishing justice, The Democratic party welcomes an exacting scrutiny of the executive power -which four years ago was committed to its trust in the election of Grover Cleveland President of the United States, and it challenges the most searching inquiry concerning its fidelity and devotion to tbe pledges which then invited the suffrages of the people. During a most critical period of our financial affairs, resulting from overtaxation, the anom alous condition of the currency and public debt unmatured, it has by the adoption of sound financial principles and economy not only prevented a disaster but greatly promoted the prosperity of the people. It has reversed the improvident and unwise policy of the Republican party touching the public domain and has reclaimed from corpora tions and syndicates, alien and domestic, and restored to the people nearly one hundred millions of acres of valuable land to be sacredly held as homesteads for our citizens. While carefully guarding the Interests of those concerned and adhering to the principles of justice and equity it has paid out more for pensions and bounties to the soldiers and sail ors of the Republic than was ever paid before during an equal period. it. nas adopted and consistently pursued a firm and. prudent foreign policy, preserving peace witn all nations, while scrupulously maintaining all the rights and interests of our own Government and people at home and abroad. The exclusion from our shores of Chinese laborers has been effectually secured under the provision of a treaty the ratification of which has been postponed by the action of a Republican majority in the Senate. In every branch and department of the Gov ernment under Democratic control the rights and tbe welfare of all the people nave been guarded and defended: every public interest bas been protected, and the equality of all our citizens before tbe law without regard to race or color has been steadfastly maintained. Upon its record thus exhibited and apon the pledge of a continuance to the people of the benefits of Democracy the Democratic party invokes a renewal of popular trust by the re- election of a chief magistrate who has been faithful, able and prudent. The Republican party, controlling the Senate and resisting in both bouses of Congress a re formation of unjust and unequal tax laws. which have outlasted the necessities of war and are now undermining the abundance of a long peace, deny, to tne people equality before the law and the fairness and the justice which are tbeir right. Then tbe cry of American labor for a better share in the rewards of industry is stifled with false pretenses, enterprise is fet tered ana Douna down to home markets; capital is discouraged with doubt and unequal, un just laws can neither be properly amended or repealed. The Democratic party will continue, with all tbe power confided to it, the straggle to reform these laws, in accordance with the pledges of its last platform, indorsed at the ballot box by tne suffrages of the people. Of all the industrious, free men of our land, the immense majority, including every tiller of the soil, gain no advantage from excessive tax laws, but the price of nearly every thing they buy is increased by the favoritism of an unequal system of taxation. All unnecessary taxation is unjust taxation. It is repugnant to the creed, of Democracy that by such legislation the cost of the necessaries of life should be unjustifiably increased to all our people. Judged by Democratic principles the interests of the people are betrayed when. by unnecessary taxations, trusts and combina tions are permitted to exist which, while un duly enriching the few that combine, rob the body ot our citizens by depriving them of the benefits of natural competition. isvery .Democratic rule or governmental ac tion is violated when, through unnecessary taxa tion, a vast sum of money far beyond tbe needs or the economical administration is drawn from the people and the channels of trade. ana accumulated as a demoralizing sur plus In the National treasury. The money now lying Idle in the Federal treasury, resulting' from superfluous taxation, amount to more than one hundred and twenty-five millions, and the surplus collected is reaching the sum or mor than sixty millions annually. Debauched by this immense temptation, the remedy of tbe Republican party is to meet and exhaust by extravagant appropriations and ex penses. whether constitutional or not, the accumulation of extravagant taxation. The Democratic policy is to enforce frugality in public expense and abolish unnecessary taxa tion. Our established domestic industries and en terprises should not and need not be endan gered by the reduction and correction of the burdens of taxation. On the contrary a fair and careful revision of our tax laws, with due allowance for the difference between the wages or American and foreign labor, must promote and encourage every branch of such industries and -enterprises by giving them assurance of an extended market and steady and con tinuous operations. In the interests of Ameri can labor, which should in no event be neglected, the revision of our tax laws contem plated by the Democratic party should promote the advantages of such labor, by cheapening the cost of tbe necessaries of life in the borne of every workingman and at the same time secur ing to him steady and remunerative employ ment. . - Upon the question of tariff reform so closely concerning every phase of our national life and upon every question involved in the problem of good government the Democratic party submits its principles and professions to the intelligent suffrages of tne Amencrn people. There was a moderate volume of applause when the opening sentences which reaf firmed the utterances of the tariff plank in the platform or 1SS4 were read, but when that which followed indorsing the Presi dent's message and declaring that it cor rectly interpreted that plank was read, the convention fairly , rose to its feet and cheered wildly for a full minute. Mr. Watterson moved that the report of the committee be adopted, which, was agreed to by a unanimous vote. " Mr. Scott, of Pennsylvania, under in structions from the committee on resolution, offered the following resolution: Resolved, That this convention hereby in dorses and recommends the early passage of the bill for the reduction of the revenue now pending in the House of Representatives. The resolution was adopted amid loud applause. ' , Mr. Lehman, of Iowa, offered and the convention adopted a resolution declaring for tbe admission of Washington. Dakota, Montana and -New Mexico into the Union. On motion of Governor Able' t, of New Jersey, the following resolution was adopted:' : --- . Resolved, That we express our cordial sym- and religious liberty; and we especially declare ur sympathy with the efforts of those noble patriots, who, led by Gladstone and Parnell, have conducted their grand and peaceful con test for home rule in Ireland. ; THTJBsf AH BOXISATIA. .After the adoption of the platform the convention proceeded to the nomination of a candidate for Vice-President. When California was called in tbe list of States, Mr. Tarpey was introduced and proceeded to nominate Alien G. Thurman, of Ohio. Mr. Tarpey said : 'Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen: Tbis Is indeed a most pleasant duty which through the kindness of my friends, nave been chosen to periorm, and I am truly - grateful to my associates who have so honored me. I fear that it was kindness alone and not ability that prompted my selection from among the many eloquent gentlemen who are mem bers of the California delegation. But, sir?, what I lack in oratorical ability I in some Bin all measure compensate for in my enthusiasm m the undertaking, and feel ing as I do that the most eloquent must fall short of doing full justice to the gen tleman whom I am here to nominate. have accepted the trust with' the mental reservation that, if nothing else, I ant at least earnest in what I say and filled with admiration for him of whom I spsak. ' "That I am proud of the privilege of ad dressing you I acknowledge, but that I am prouder still of the man whom I shall name I will not deny, for I feel, sirs, that this Republic holds no superior to Hon. Allen G. Thurman, of Ohio. The greeting accorded bis name is a well deserved tribute I Its spontaneity has been nobly earned.- Be assured such a greeting will be accorded his name at its every mention throughout this Republic from sea to sea and from the British line to the gulf. "Allen G. Thurman ! What an epitome of American civil history is embodied in that name! His character and ability are known to every man, woman and child in the land. His public services will be more enduring monument than temples of stone or brass, for history will inscribe his name among the list of America's illustri ous sons. "Taking his seat in the United States Senate in 1869 tbe" imprint of his genius is found deeply imbedded in the legislation of the country. From his first appearance in the Allen O. Thurman. Senate until his retirement from that body his voice was always raised in behalf of the people and in defense of their right. For forty years he had been a prominent figure in public life and yet to-day no man can point to a single act or expression of his which does not do him credit. Large at heart, large of brain, and larger still in ex perience, he is the man of all men whose record justifies his nomination at your hands in the sense that he can not be defeated before the people. A man of benevolent heart, manifesting itself not only in private life, but it has been the leading feature of his official life. "When the Pacific coast was endeavor ing to retard Chinese immigration, when it had decided that National legislation was necessary to accomplish the desired result. when the merits of the subject were not understood east of the Rocky mountains. Allen G. Thurman, then a Senator of 1he United States, was the first to raise bis voice in defense of those whose means of living were in danger and whose homes were threatened with destruction. When the great railroad corporation evidenced an intention to evade payment of their obligations to the Government this great man prepared tbat remarkable en actment known as the Thurman bill, by which the offending corporations were obliged to provide a sinking fund for the redemption of their promises. "During the trying times of reconstruc tion, Mr. Thurman was the central figure in the Unite! States Senate in upholding the dignity and the integrity of the Constitu tion. The waves of party passion lashed into fury by ill-advised jealous partisans, broke harmless upon his leonine front and settled back into calmness by the force of bis logic and the power of bis oratory. 'His name may be most fittingly coupled with that of our honored President, Grover Cleveland. Cleveland and Thurman will be a ticket absolutely invincible. It will sweep the country with a mighty rush, a tidal wave of approval. Against it all op position will be fruitless. The approval of Cleveland's administration during the past four years and Indorsement of his actions, the simplicity yet remarkable ability with which he bas administered his great trust under the most try ing circumstances, coupled with the all-pervading affection felt for the philosopher of Columbus, will make Cleveland and Thurman a war cry to affright the political enemy. The enthusiasm which will be aroused upon its announcement will be in fectious and gathering force and volume day by day it will before the ides of November have become epidemic. "lhat the name of Allen G. Thurman should be cheered to the echo in this haJl is not strange, for it brings the warm blood of gratitude surging to the heart of every fireside, and tbe testimonials which the people will surely pay to his worth at the coming November election will be con vincing proof of his phenomenal popular ity." I Applause. I When Colorado was called Thomas M, Patterson addressed the convention stating that he ba I been selected to present the name of Pension Commissioner Black for the Vice-Presidency, but Mr. Black's withdrawal left nothing to do but leave tbe question of tbe vice-Presidency in the hands of the convention. Mr. Flggot, ot Connecticut, seconded Thurman's nomination on behalf of his State, and then Indiana was called. Senator Voorbees responded, and in a short speech nominated Isaac P. Gray for the Vice-Presidency. ("Cheers. Albert H. Cox, of Georgia, seconded the nomination of Governor Gray. - Mr- Dryden, of Missouri, made an elo quent speech seconding the nomination of Thurman, creating a good deal of enthu siasm.

Powell, of Ohio, briefly out earnestly seconded Thurman's nomi nation. Mr. Dawson, of South Carolina, seconded tne nomination of Thurman. Air. xnompson, or .Tennessee, also sec onded the nomination of Thurman. After the States bad all been called a ballot was takea and Allen G.

The motion was adopted by acclamation. . : - - Ex-Governor Throckmorton, of Texas. also seconded the nomination of Mr. Thurman in a brief speech in which he said tbat he represented a divided delegation upon the question of a Vice-Presidential candidate, but he was none the less enthusiastic in his support of Ohio's grand old man. Virginia also spoke for Thurman. Colonel Fellows, of New York, presented a resolution of respect for the dead statesmen of tbe pai ty who have passed to the other world since the Democratic cconven-rion of 1SS4 Horatio Seymour. McClellan. Tilden and Hancock and of regret at their jaking off. The resolution was adopted witn rising vote. , After pas lng various rcs dutions of thanks and receiving tbe names of the National committeemen from tbe various delegations, the convention on motion of Governor Green, of New Jersey, at two n. BEDS AND - BEDDINGU Bow to Keep Them In a Nice, Sweet and Healthy Condition. . Daring the spring cleaning there) are o many thing to dp that are all-important in their own way that it is a difficult matter for a woman to do them all thoroughly. One of the most important parts of the spring cleaning is a ihorough overlooking of the. beds. After the weather settles they can not be looked after too soon, for if not leaned thoroughly before the warm weather sets in, it will be found almost Impossible to do much of any thing with them. There is an old saying to the effect that if you wish clean beds daring the summer you should clean them in March, bat in a climate such as oars the advice is not to be followed. To be sure, they may be looked oyer, but it is not safe to do the work thoroughly until the season settles. Where there is a spare chamber it is much easier to do this work, as that may be utilized by the occupants of the bed cleaned until the latter is ready for use.' Unless the bed has been cleaned early in the day, and thoroughly dry, it is not safe for any one to sleep in it the first night after cleaning, for there is sure to be some dampness about it. In fact, if it can be con veniently avoided, it ought not to be occupied at all the first night, for it is much wiser to put up with a little inconvenience for one night than to run the risk of sleeping on a damp bed stead. , Begin this work always on a fine, warm day, and never on any. account do it on a damp day. If there is a feather bed, remove this first and put it to air thoroughly. Put it outside, if possible, and in the shade, but never in the sun. The roof of a piazza or ell is an excellent place for this purpose. Put an old sheet on the roof and on this place the bed, turning and shaking it up occasionally. This must be done when the sun is on the other side of the house, and the roof where the bed is in the shade. When the sun comes round to the bed, take in the latter, and if it has been out for any length of time, the feathers will be nice and light. If there is not a place of this kind for airing the bed, it can be aired nicely by placing in another room on the floor by an open window, with a sheet underneath, and turning and shaking it occasionally. ' Mattresses after being brushed can be aired in the same way. Take off the springs, brush and dust thoroughly and set aside. Remove the slats, dust them and set with the springs. Brush out the slat-no tches at the sides of the bedstead and take down the bed. Dissolve a piece of alum the size of an egg in quarter of a pail of hot water. When dissolved. with a flannel cloth wash thoroughly the slat-notches and ends of the sides of the bed, being particular that the alum water shall go into every crevice on the wrong side. If possible, do not let the alum water touch the varnished side of the bed, for it will make an unsightly white streak that nothing but revarnishing will obliterate. Wash the slats in the same way ana wipe dry. if there is anv woodwork about the springs, this, also, should have an alum bath, making sure to wipe it dry, more particularly about the springs, so there will be no danger of their rusting. Alio alum water must be as hot as ean be used to be effective. Salt and water is often used for this same purpose, but is not as good as the alum water if the latter is used hot. When the woodwork is thoroughly dry, with a feather dipped in tur pentine go into the slat-notches, ends and all crevices and the woodwork around the springs if there is any. The odor of turpentine is not pleasant, but the air will soon take it away so that it will not be known to have been used, When done, put up the bed, replace springs mattress and feather bed. If this work is done thoroughly there will be no occasion for any thing but an occasional dusting of the bed, after sweeping the room, during the summer. Boston Budget.

Ihere are many men of that kind, who imagine that they would be great men and could do won derful things if they were placed in other circumstances and had greater opportunities. But true worth does not consist in supposed possibilities or imaginary performances in other con ditions, but in the faithful perform ance of duty, to the utmost of our abil ity, in the condition and circumstances in which we are placed. A man who is not faithful, and who does not perform his work well in the humblest place, shows that he is neither fitted nor worthy to enter a higher place. When a man demonstrates by his deeds that his place is too small for him, a larger place will open up to him, or he will so extend his present field of labor as to afford full scope for his powers. All success is achieved by the exercise of our present powers and the improvement of our present opportunities. Methodist Hecorder. - THE GENERAL MARKETS. . KANSAS CITY, June 13.
