Louis was redeemed by the Republicans two yeara ago and the party gave such a good administration o! affairs that the voters of the city gave a practical endorsement by again electing 'Republican officials on Tuesday last. The average Republican majority was 13.000 and the council will be wholly Republican. What do you think of a machine that picks up a roll of manilla paper, attaches it to one end of a cylinder and. transforms it into bags at the rate of 30,000 per day? You may go out and lock your door and, returning after a certain length of time, find several thousand bags, not only made but counted and piled into packages, where you left merely aroll of manilla. There is something almost startling in this growth of an industry that at first glance seems one of the most unpictur- esque in the catalogue. The complete output of the largest paper bag com- | pany's mills amounts to between 5,000000 and 0,000,000 bags per day, and is distributed throughout the length and breadth of the United States. In the manufacture of the bags machinery is almost entirely used, although from300 to 400 employes are kept busj 1 attending to detail work. Of these emploj-es more than two- thirds are women. Tho factories arc mostly situated in the east, the largest of all being located in the romantic region of northern New York. The girls employed in the New England mills are many of them high school graduates, and live at home. The duties of these young women employes consist largely in attending to the arrangement of such too", on 'bananas, guavas^ custard-apples and dates. For a cent you may buy more plums than can be managed at one eating." " MOVABLE TABERNACLET Peculiar Structure Drilrned by nn Ermn- cellit In low*. One of the most unique houses of worship ever erected in Iowa, or possibly "in this country, stands at 1448 West avenue, Burlington,.la. It is'Missiona- ry J. B. Crawford's movable tabernacle. The structure is made of iron and wood on a steel frame. It is built in sections, 8 by 9 feet in size, each section, being hinged so as to fold into a 6pace of S by 4X feet. Each section is numbered to aid in fitting the parts together. The outside of this unique edifice is' of corrugated iron, and the Interior is lined with hard pine.

The figures are those of Bradstreet and show the cumber of failures during the first three months of this year to be 3,812 with assets of $26,561,132 and liabilities of flC.910.4S8. as against 3,969 failures in the first quarter of 1894, with assets of $26.748.470 and liabilities of $49,. 085,088- The number oi falluree in tho Northwestern States is exactly the same in the first quarter of 1895 as of 1894. In the thirteen Southern States and the District of Columbia it is larger in 1895 than in 1894, being 800 in the present quarter against 683 a year ago,, with a corresponding In crease in liabilities. In .New York also the failures and liabilities are both larger in 1895 than in 1894. In all the other sections the improve mont is barely perceptible. Bradstreet's figures prove conclusively that the South has not been excopted from the financial depression, caused by unwise legislation by a democratic congress, aa has been claimtd byjgome. ID fact there is an acre&ee in the Southern States both n number of failures and amount of labilities. In Louisiana the failures f the first quarter ol J895 are 115, gainst 73 in 1894, and the liabilities re nearly twice greater. la Maryand.

One uiucaine will turn out 200,000 perfect bags a, day, with lap not to exceed hajf an inch. There arc several factories for the manufacture of bags iu thujwesterii country, but they are not so large nor so perfect in equipment as those located in the east. The girls employed in this section are not high-, school graduates, but they are bright and attractive, with a deftness of touch and quickness of understanding that ranks them with the better class of , wage workers. Machinery has largely . done away with individual labor, but there is still enough left to -do to keep many scores of girls busy. The wages paid seldom rise above $S or $10 per week, and more often range below SO. Independent of the home market, the paper bag manufacturers command a large foreign trade. It is almost impossible to compute by figures the number of these flying pockets of paper that arc rushed from the mills each da}', to flutter the wide world over iu answer to the demands of trade. If there were no other industry left, this one alone would place thousands of freight cars under service daily to transport the output. Tbe exhibit of paper bags at the world's fair was one of the largest of the exhibits. There is little fault to find with these largo paper factories on the score of cleanliness and sanitary standards. Paper is wholesome .ind tiie atmosphere where it is stored and operated upon is in the main both clean and healthful. The young gh-1 whose life is cast amid the mazes of a vast paper bag factory may cot know as much as she ought of outdoor sunlight and fresh, pure air, but she has decidedly the advantage of toilers in wool and leather industries. Stoves, so arranged ;is to'taku in all the piping during transportation. The building has folding benches which will seat about 500 people. Everything used in the erection of the building is turned to some good account. Even the derrick, on which the frame ;md sides are raised, is afterward turned into a rostrum for the speaker. • When the building is in pieces this derrick forms the wagon bed on which the sections arc loaded for transportation. Mr. Crawford, who invented and constructed the building, has been in the missionary work in DCS Moines county, la., for five years, having graduated from Moody's institute in Chicago, and has been doing some excellent work since. He has found in bis travels through the country many places where the people wanted services, but had no hall or room large enough for the purpose, and in many cases no room at aLU The idea of such a building as the one herein described occurred to him, and he was not long in drawing up the plans and putting them into execution. The building can be "knocked down,'' packed up, transported into another township and erected by two men in less than three days at a cost of less than S12. It is so .arrangedthat it can beset up on any kind of ground, rolling or level. Mr. Crawford says thisbuilding will settle a very perplexed question of evangelical work in the poorer portions oi the cities, where rents are high. The building can be transported to some vacant lot, set up und the sen-ices held with very little expense, and he thinks his idea will be adopted by other missionaries in a short time. The cost of the building -was about S500. BISMARCK ON HAPPINESS. Although H« Hn Llrrd Rijrhty Teftn H. llu »«d Vrrj Little of It, At Leipsic the other day Prince Bismarck made a speech, in the course of which he said: "In my long life I have rarely been happy. If I were to figure out the total of the rare moments of happiness that I have had I would find perhaps in all about twenty-four hours. In politics I have never had time enough to be happy. I have always had to struggle, and when I was victorious cares came with the victory, and I had to make the most of them. "In my private life I have had moments of happiness; iirst in my youth when I shot my first hare, and then afterward when I became a farmer. I was also happy with my wife and children. But to know how to enjov good fortune—a peculiar gift that my old master, tho emperor, possessed in a high degree—it is necessary to be both phlegmatic and sanguine. I often had a great deal of dilHcul'y in bringing him to a resolution, but, once formed, it was solid. You could build PRINCE BISMARCK. houses on it. He plaeed truth above everything, and sometimes public affairs compelled us to remove ourselves a little from the 1 truth. That was always hard for the old emperor. But he was very hippy, and yet, for all that, how unforlunate he was!" All of which goes to prove that, so far as Bismarck himself is concerned, notwithstanding 1 his wonderful achievements, the garqe wasn't worth the powder. j AN INFANT'S OUTFIT. FRENCH PRETENDER. Loul.n Philippe, Hue il'Orlc:inH, and tils CI:ilm to thi) Tliroiic. Louis Philippe, Due d'Orleans, is the son of Louis Philippe Albert, Comte de Paris, who recently died, and is the grandson of Ferdinand Philippe Louis, Due d'Orlcans, arid the great-grandson of King L'ouis Philippe, by tho virtue of descent, from whom he bases his claim to the- throne of France. The dulce w:;s born at York house, Twickenham. England, iu 1SOO. Comte de Paris in August. 157:3, had an interview at Frohsdorf with other royal claimants and there waived his claim to the throne in favor of Comte de Chambord. By the death of the latter, however, in August, iSS.'i, Comte de Paris became the undisputed head of the house of Bourbon and the claim of his son, the present Due d'Orleans, is as fully recognized as rightful by the royalist ITotol Lire In the Azoren. A traveler -writing from Fayal, in the Azores, comments on the methods of hotel life there. Board at the best hotel is 1.000 reis, tl of our money, a day.

The other earned the steamer trunk, steamer chair and shawls, and the two, thus burdened, kept up a dog-trot till our rooms were reached. The hotel keeps a plate of oranges in the room constantly, and I eat about a dozen a day. They are small, almost seedless, • • _.__.. *• . * party of France. This was made apparent by the message sent to the duke at the time of his father's death. Comte de Paris never showed any particular disposition to bring his cause before the French people. Nevertheless, the popularity of the Orleanist family as shown on the occasion of the marriage of the oldest daughter of the comte with the son of the king of Portugal, in 1SSG, so alarmed the French, government that it was the cause of a law ol expulsion, by which the direct claimants to the French throne and their France.

Twenty Uollam Will Cover the Whole Co»t of Its Wardrobe. We will first name the articles most needed for the littlu anticipated stranger: Wrapping blankets, shirts, socks, skirts, bands, slips, night dresses, wrappers rather than the little flannel shawls, that some of us older mothers have used. Having closely calculated the cost of this necessary wardrobe, that it may come within the reach of the many young mothers whose circumstances are limited, we will proceed to give it, hoping thereby to be thus aiding in our little way. Wrapping blanket made from a portion of one of our much-used ones will be most desirable, being softer. Take, say, thft Cfuarter of one, after having it made fresh and sweet by washing, either bind or hem it. Shirts, all wool, four in number, seamless if possible, will cost S3. Socks, if bought ready made, will cost SJ.. r >0 for six pairs. Less than hnlf this price if our own deft fingers knit them. Napkins, two pieces of cotton bird- eye, will cost SI.CO. For the same purpose add to the number one dozen made from Canton flannel, which will cost Sl.2.5. Night shirts, three in number, are better made of half cotton rather tban ail wool. This will be 20 cents per yard. Thirty inches in length is sufficiently long. Six yards will make bands and skirt- Do not make any ! bands double. The hem for skirt should shnpl3 T be turned down once and herring-boned with silk: for the band, the same way. The three all wool skirls may cost from Sl.'iO upward, but as this is to be an outfit jot- ton up on the most economical plan we would advise the mother to embroider or finish in any way these skirts, which, if she does, can be made for S3, including silk. Of course, it takes but little time, and we always call fancy work piny. And we are apt to look at our own art with pride. X'ght dresses of soft, cheap Lansdale cambric, which is 10 cents per yard. Twelve yards will make six. ' Finish them in the plainest possible manner about the neck, as all the little embroideries and ruffles must make a tender neck uncomfortable. Then you have them for the smal,l sum of S1.20. For a baby until 3 months old you scarcely need what is called more than a day slip, six in number, made of Lansdale cambric of a finer quality than the night ones. This at 25 cents is lovely, made wijh little embroidery, will cost not more than Si.50. Wrappers, if 3'ou wish to use them rather than sacqne or shawl. Three can j be made of outing flannel, blue and white pin stripe, price 10 cents per yard, six yards costing 60 cents. No trimmitijr. simply made with full sleeve, turn down collar and yoke. Open in front, always using on all garments that require buttons the finest quality, that their size or thickness may not cause discomfort. The difference in the.cost would be so small a matter that anyone can meet it. And' just here we -Tvould 'say if « child's clothes were always rastenea ID front, whether it be by buttons or safety' pins, much discomfort and crying would be obviatod. Of the dresses for baby we would advise tha% they have none until the time before mentioned, at least three months old. By this time mother sees what is best, in what way she wants them made, etc. The little band* should be made of the finest all-wool flannel, 75 cents a vard —one yard will make lix. After cutting in strips six inches in width, nineteen in length, leaving the edges unfinished, simply when urrangiug them on the child turn edges smoothly down, invariably fasting in front. Next comes a pretty baby basket, which can- bo bought, for Si; clotted Swiss for it one yard and a quarter, which will cost 30 cents; Valenciennes edging one piece, M cents: three-quarters of a yard pink silirea., 20 cents; one sheet white cotton batting, 5 cents. First ' miike your pad for bottom of three layers of the cotton, covering with silicea, then the Swiss, placing and fastening neatly. Thou cut from the goods lengthwise four strips the width of the side, hemming each edge neatly, sewing the Ince on each edge; now make small box plaiting, reversing the edp-es: as the side of thu basket is- smaller at lower thun upper edge, make plaits a little larger at, the lowct side. Put also padding same as at the bottom ou thi! side before putting the Swiss plaiting on. This must be done neatly, which will make a dainty finish- at tho top of edge as well as covering selvedge of bottom pad. Now our pretty basket is ready lot its pockets and ribbons bows. Cut pockets any sljnpe taste may dictate, covering with silicea and trimming with a bow of pink satin ribbon an inch and a half wide. Four of three pockets are needed, tying also a large bow on the end of the basket last ol- all. • One pie<,e of ribbon will be sufficient. Put into these pockets one paper of very small safety pins and- one of medium size and one still largmr; in another white cotton, a spool of white silk, and a paper of assorted needles: in another a roll of ifiuest old linen, some of which has been first scorched. Buy. the box and get your violet powder, also pult—the three may cost §1—and a jar of vaseline. - This baslcet, tastefully made, is now completed and ready to have laid in.it o. pair of socks, shirt band, napkin, shirt slip, wrapper, and a pair of tcissors. You may be surprised to leiirn that all: this loug list of pretty thiug.s will cost you but a trille more than §17.—Philadelphia, Times. or Henry Labouchere suggests some- new possibilities of hypnotism: "Many who have to travel, bate traveling? they might in future," lie says, "bo- hypnotized and laid in a train like dead meat, with a label on their backs indicating their destination. Those, too, who suffer from seasickness might bo hypnotized, and only awakened at tho end of the vo3 r ngc. A poor man out of work, owing to frost or some such cause, and finding himself and fainily without food, might have himself and his family hypnotized until the frost is over.'' ' Sncc*f»f*fiil Uarnlnp Machlno. A New York woman has invented a darner which is so simple in mechanism and efficacious in working that the wonder is no woman lias come to the relief of her sisters with this beneficent aid before. It is a marvelous saver ol both time and eyesight. The holes, •whether in stocking or garment, must first be overcast with fine thread or fiilk, as in darning by hand, to draw them into shape; then they are set into the tiny loom, and click goes the needle, back and forth, weaving a perfect web where the gaping hole was, with such celerity, that it seems like play.
