TDK following highly commendable resolution was adopted at the recent meeting of the Northern Indiana Teachers' association held at South Bend: . •*•'& '•• "We desire to express our approval and pledge our support to'alleffortrio make public schools of the people, free from political, sectional and re- llglouB entanglements, devoted solely to the work of securing the most In. telllgent, conscientious and patriotic citizenship In those committed to our care."

Mayor William B. Smith against Mo. Clure. The veteran Pennsylvania editor fearlessly arose and charged that he was not being fainy treated by the court and also that hla witnesses were being bribed, at the same time re. questing hie counsel to withdraw from the case. AN Oregon jury acquitted a minister on the ground of insanity, who, armed with a revolver, entered a Portland bank at noon, held up the cashier, bound him and dragged him in the vault and when captured waa emptying trays of gold In a sack. His in. sanity seems to have taken a practical turn and wa§ allied with considerable method. Insanity will hereafter be as popular with bank robbers who wish to escape the penitentiary as it is at present with murderers who have no desire for a close acquaintance with hemp. On the headwaters • of the Copper river, in Alaska, about two hundred miles from the sea coast, where a white man has never been allowed to visit, dwells a strange and peculiarly mysterious race of Indians, says a correspondent of the St. Louis Globe-Democrat. In recent years', through some unknown means, they acquired possession of a few guns, and _npw when they come down to. the trading, posts on Knock river, at the' head'bf Cook's inlet, they often bring bullets '.molded oat of silver and other metals. The Alaska Commercial company's agent, three years ago, obtained several of these bullets and sent them to San Francisco to be assayed, and the returns Indicated that sixty-five per cent, was silver, the remainder being copper and lead, with a slight trace of gold. The Indians have a great many primitive weapons and cooking utensils, all of which are rudely, though skillfully, made out of pure copper. They,-have frequently informed the white traders that silver and copper abound in immense quantities at tho< base' of a certain peak back of Spirit mountain, which is now reckoned as the highest mountain in North America by surveyors and engineers who have viewed ii from a distance. It is known that these Indians have no means or knowledge of reducing ore, and it seems almost certain that they must, be telling a true story about silver and copper being found in almost pure quantities in its native state. The" winter is the only time the Indians visit tho coast for trading purposes. In the summer the post on Kneek river is abandoned on account of the rapacious appetite of the.mosquitoes, it being impossible for a human person to survive their attacks. Several instances are known where they havo killed and devoured Indian dogs. The- natives, for that reason,. give tho coast a wide berth .in the.summer. They ure shrewd and very active traders, and will not tolerate lying or deceit on the part of a trader. Over a trivial mistake in the weight of a piece of tobacco, intentional or otherwise, they killed the trader some years ago,, and then fastened up the store and left everything undisturbed, where it was found the following spring. The gunboat Pinta made an unsuccessful effort to apprehend the murderers. Subsequently it was learned who the real Indian murderer was, and the trader's successor killed him. He, however, lost ; no time in getting out of the country, and barely saved his life. Along in the early spring some two hundred or three' hundred Indians come down to the post laden with huge bundles of rich arctic; furs, tho most valuable and highly' prized of which arc the black foxes. The trading begins by the Indians bartering off one skin at a time in exchange for money, and then the trad-. ing goes. the other way, the Indians, purchasing domestic goods. This sort of thing usually lasts a month, and then they pack up and return into the mountains, which are impenetrable to a white man on account of the deep snow and dense undergrowth. The women carry the packs and the males act as escorts. The women are small and puny, though very wiry and active, while the bucks are very large, active, nnd of sinewy frames, very powerful and expert wrestlers. They resolutely refused to allow white miners to go into then- country. Three years ago a party of. ten, armed and provisioned, started up the Copper river to find the traditional mountain turn over the refuse heaps for bones and- fish offal. The. friendship of the French governor for the agent rose out of an adventure with a panther which haunted the purlieus of the old monastery on the headland which served as a country residence for the former. The brute was the terror of the household and destroyed all the pet animals, but no one was found brave enough to encounter it until the agent undertook to "sit up'' near the carcass of the last "kill," and, with the moon in his favor, give the quietus to the panther with an express bullet. The governor could never"be too grateful, and' his pretty brunette daughter, in the white muslin dress and broad straw hat, who had lost her pet rabbits through.! the depredations, smiled sweetly! and admiringly upon tbe Englishman,. Thereafter he was always a persona grata, and a .hero in the small social circle of Selambique; welcomed to the exclusive "at homes" of the wife of. the colonel of. infantry, and invited t<3 participate in the arrangement of the ceremonials, and sports of the annual fete.-' '•"'"" CANDID CRITICISM. It Wai » LltUe K«rd on the Work of »n lmpre«»lonl«t. Impressionism in art is, roughly speaking, the reaction against the use of excessive and careful detail; it consists in representing nature broadly, and as she appears to the poetic eye. Yet such an interpretation of art does not admit of carelessness any more than the microscopically-faithful method; and when its devotees allow themselves the slightest inaccuracy of line and feeling in thus dashing off broad effects, they are no longer apostles of the true. i John Durand says, in his life of A.,.15. Durand, that a distinguished African explorer, M. Mizon, on Ms return to France, brought with him a young negress, twelve 3-ears old, allied Sana- bon, who became, for a time, a favorite in society. One day she was taken to see the pictures in the Ooupil gallery, and her entertainers wore naturally desirous of knowing how a perfected art would affect such an uttes savage. She was asked to tell what she saw, and answered readily enough, as she came to one canvas after another, that she saw trees, men or animals. Finally she was led up to the canvas of an impressionist on an easel by itself, and interrogated in the same fashion. She hesitated for a long time. Then she walked" up to the picture, 'looked behind it, and retreated again. "What do you see?" urged her companions. "It is a horse," she returned, hcsi- .tatingly. . . The intention of the artist had been to represent the margin of a pool, where a woman, with a child standing beside her, was washing clothes. /ABOUT BLUSHING WOMEN.

For a safe and sufficient expression of a true financial polio;, there Is nothing better than the financial plaok of the platform adopted at the national Republican convention of 1892, which la as follow*: "The American people, from tradl tlon and interest, favor bimetallism, and the Republican party demands the use oJ both, gold and silver aa standard money, with such restrictions, and under such provisions, to be determined by legislation, aa will secure a maintenance of the parity of value of the two metals, so that the purchasing and the debt-paying power of the dollar, whether of silver, cold or paper, shall be at all times equal.

The miners very sensibly returned and abandoned the search. Over in the interior, back'of the country inhabited by the Copper Indians, lives another tribe, which are refused permission to visitthe coast for trading piirposes, and consequently aro forced to sell their furs to the Copper Indians. It is also said that the Copper Indians "Night Thoughts" that "the man who blushes is not quite a brute." Darwin's observations determined the fact that blushing is confined to the human species. _ ..V FOND OF THE LETTER H. have many tribes in absolute subjection. The Indians are exceptionally intelligent and observing 1 , but very reserved toward the whites. When questioned closely they freely admit that their objection to close association with white people is on account of their debasing influence on the coast tribes, whom they aver were ruined by affiliating 1 vrith civilization. The g-eneral opinion prevails that when the government forces these Indians to open this country up to exploration many rich gold and silver minus will be discovered. IN FRENCH INDIA. A Plctureique View of the Town Where St. Francix Xnvlor Preached. As the evening- falls, the lights shine through the little casements of pearl shells, and the sound of the gnitar or violin is borne upon the "breeze; the bell of the cathedral tolls for vespers, and. the veiled figures of the women can be seen on the shore flocking- the sacred edifice. It was here, says the Gentleman's Magazine, that St. Francis Xavier preached; his memory is yet fragrant through the land, an«i tnost of the people still are Catholics. Presently the ,moon rises over the Ghats and lights •up the distant ruins of, the robber fortress, on a lofty and seemingly inaccessible buttress, and throws an' ever- widening beam of silver upon'the silent side of the river. Soon the tide; is in PB- Hen U«o It for an Initial In Names When : Any Other Would Do. "It's a peculiar thing," said the knowing clerk in a New York hotel which, according to the Sun of that city, is noted more for its hospitality than it is for its inquisitiveness into the character of its guests, "it's a peculiar thing tbe fondness that the average man lias for the letter H as an initial. How I don't suppose that there are more middle names begging with H than with any other letter, M or R or S or B, but nine men out of ten, if they are in doubt about a middle initial, decide on H. Now, my middle initial is W, but for every letter 1 get, except from people I know well, that has tny initial right I get three in which it is put down H. "It's very seldom too, that you'll find a man with sufficient strength of character to leave out the middle initial of tho man he's writing to if he doesn't know it, so he claps in an H and lets it go. There seems to be a prevailing superstition that a man isn't just what he ought to be unless he has a middle name, and that the chances are very strong that that name begins with the eighth letter of the alphabet. "Now here's another instance. Cast your eves over this page of our register. ' That is mostly late guests who drop in here late at night and sign names, other than their own. See the result: 'Charles H. Jones ; ' 'John H. .Smith,' 'George H. Bobinson,' 'A. H. Brpwn,' *P. W. Brown,' and so on. There are ten names on that one page tn'e middle jn'*'** of which' is H. Isnt any more ornamentiii. and 1 can't sec that in any respect it has an advantage over the rest of the alphabet. Yet the human race sticks to it wHb a fidelity worthy of a more important cause. I'd like to have some wise man tell me why." ELASTIC HOTEL BILLS. U»w Uratnrann M*y Bant a Tattoo oo Their Employe™' (rank Account. "How much shall I make out your bill for?" inquired the country hotel clerk, as the guest v.-as leaving, says the New York Herald. "Make it out for what I owe," replied the man, a little surprised, "The bill is six dollars," continued the clerk, with an ingratiating smile, "but I'd just as soon make it out for nine or ten dollars. It's all the same to us." "Perhaps it is," the puzzled guest exclaimed, "but it isn ? t to me. Why should I pay nine or ten dollars when my bill is six dollars?" "Aren't you a drummer?" the clerk suddenly demanded. "Certainly net." There was a pause. and then the guest suddenly demanded: "What's, all this business about fake bills, anyway?" "We always make out bills 'to suit' for drummers," explained the clerk, "so's they can corae out oven on their expense accounts. A traveling man who pays us six dollars can get a receipt for ten dollars if he likes, a.nd when he settles with his employers ho shows them the receipted bill nnd pockets the difference. 1 thought, you were a drummer." "Xo, I'm not," replied the guest, "but I know a good many drummers. In fact, I employ about n, hundred, and 1 notice that when they eomc to this town they always stop at this hotel. I observe, also, that, it's a two-dollar joint, and that I'm always charged three dollars and a half. Never niiad, though, I'll Jay for the next man who stops here." And as he went out the clerk looked as if -he thought he had put his foot right in it, and the foot was held there. BISMARCK'S HONORS. Some FCIT of Thorn StHI Exlftt In Spite ot ', ,y .,, the Cynic*. Some time ago a man took it upon himself to assert that the modern woro- 'an has forgotten how to blush. This imputation was launched at femininity in general with so much bitterness and .asperity that one might-gather there- from that blushing is a virtue, and that not to blush is criminal. Whatever the . connection between the sudden height- ning, of color and innocence in the case of women, however, the blush is considered a sign of grace by men. Cynics have always maintained that women can cry about anything, and at a moment's notice, and it is indeed pretty well known that many actresses can squeeze out real tears nightly at the proper moment; but blushing is more diiiicvjt to acquire as an art. Blushes are evidently considered as important by the generality of men. For instance to call a man ; 'an unblushing scoundrel" is a distinct slur on his char- to tell another that you It I* Hard to Find Another for tho Irou Chancellor. What order or decoration can be given to Prince Bismarck that he does not already possess? Two lions, one sun, one red eagle, one black eagle, one white eagle, ono white elephant, the Order of Christ, the Golden Fleece, the chrysanthemum, the orders of St. Hubert, St. Andrew, St. Stanislaus and St. Anne; crosses, crowns and scepters innumerable, form only a small part of tho great total. Wnen Sedan was in the distant future, says the Pall Mall Gazette, Napoleon III. conferred on him the grand cordon of the Legion of Honor, and the emperor of Germany and king of Prussia presented him with the iron cross for valor when it was in the immediate past. His first decoration was a medal for saving life. He won it just fifty-three years ago, when he plunged into the waters- of the Wendelsee to rescue a drowning groom, and he received it from the hand of Frederick William IV. Ilis first honorary degree was conferred upon him by the University of Halle in 1SC7. How man}' honorary degrees has be received since then? And now German papers are asking hopelessly: What new decoration can be found for one who possesses all? In truth itMs impossible to say. England might, perhaps, make him an honorary senior wrangler or a research B. A., but, failing that, it seems as if the scroll of glory were exhausted. ENGLISH WOMEN CHANGING. Utterly Cnllte the Sentimental Crraturo* of the Old KMp.imlcea, In his "Notes Upon London" M. Au- gustm Filon claims to have discovered the new women in England. The English girl of to-day, he says, is utterly unlike the sentimental, languishing creature of the old keepsakes. She is dry and hard, and her form is tall and straight. The race is developing on Darwinian p«inciples. Men .are giving up marrying, -or, at all events, they marry less than they did. The women, therefore, no longer seek to please the men as they did. They go out into the world and compete with the men. There are women's clubs where every sort of subject is eagerly discussed. According to M. Filon, here is a specimen English familv: The mother is the widow of a Cambridge professor, and she has fonr daughters, of whom the eldest is thirty. The mother has very advanced political opinions and constantly speaks in public. She lives alone. The eldest daughter, who is a journalist, occupies chambers and is as free as anv young man. She is intelligent, happy, irreproachable. The second goes in for higher studies and teaches at Girton. The third has founded a colony for women gardeners. The fourth is a sculptor. M. Filon finds evervwherc in England a contuxual physical and mental activity. He is inclined, on the whole, to think that there js a good deal of good, as well as some harm, in. the new weman movement.

Ajto wtn8t fetter tent 'any easier to- challenge of the sentinels each hour, or . .^foj'than any other letter, it certainly the bark of the wretched docs thut That WM Wrought In » Terf SlmpU Jlann*r. The Contemporary Review tells an amusing-story of how a simple-minded curate was rudely enlightened as to the wars of provjdence. A ; g-ood-hearted. curate, • -wl»<? firmly believed that Uoct was continually working miracles to- enable him to help the needy, and whose! dom had a coin i» his pocket, though, he was never devoid of the fire of charity in his heart, was accosted one d»y bv a beggar woman. ' *Hc pleaded ut'-er lack of money, and! sadly turned aside; but on tho mendicant's beseeching him to search his pockets, he hopelessly pnt his hand in. one, and to his amazement and joy, found a five-shilling piece. "Another of God's miracles!" he exclaimed; and then, addressing thft.woman: "This, coin belongs to you- Take it, and go in peace." Having- told the story a few hours- later to his worldly-minded parish priest, and suggested that they should, both go down on their knees and render thanks to God, a strange, unpleasant light suddenly broke on the mind. of the shrewd pastor, who exclaimed in' accents not suggestive of thanksgivings "Good heavens! Arc. those my breeches. that vou've on }-ou'.'" llnd a Terrible Record. A French journal relates :m incident in which a haughty functionary received what iu the vernacular of our own country would bo :v "nc;it set down." This haughty person was a member of the chamber of deputies, and much given to long speeches. One day he -foxind another deputy conversing in the lobby with a man. whose face seemed familiar to him, but whom lie could not remember. He f:v:ieiiHl 1.he man must be an mtrttding: journalist.. ••I'urclon inc." he said to the other rnun. "but whom have we here?" "Allow me to introduce to yon," an- swerod the deputy, "the man who has written more falsehoods and stupidities Ihan any othor man living." "Indeed!" said the great man. "Then my supposition was correct that lie is a journalist?" "Xot at all—he is the official reporter of the chamber." —Ex-Consul Waller, of Tamatave, Madagascar, maile only one report during his term of office, but it was an uncommonly good report, and urged the establishment of closer trade relations between the United States and Madagascar. He believed tliat we could easily make ourselves the chief source of supply for manufactured cotton, greatlv used in the island, and he thought the Madagascar government woulil befriend u.n American bank if established at Tamatave.
