SOME other fellow was appointed consul to Jerusalem. Ben Havens,of Terre Haute, vras promised this place. Je-ru-aa-iem'. POOB old Chins, is borrowing money ef England. It will not be long after China gets !,n debt until she becomes subservient to the money lenders. Egypt, and India are illustrations of what happens to nations that become Indebted to the Money lenders. OUK exports for the mouth of December exceeded the value of imports by 875,000,000. The bulk of these exports consisted ot American Jarm products. It will be noticed, kowever, that Europe Is paying but little gold to liquidate this balance •t trade. Europe has need for its R old. In fact, the gold supply is ihort everywhere, and about every nation on the globe is struggling for miore gold to maintain a reserve. "Ix would be folly for capitalists •r people of moderate means either," •ays the South Bend Times, "to make m mad rush to build sugar beet factories before the raising of sugar beets has been commenced. This is » matter that calls for careful calculation . Necessarily there must be a good deal of experimenting. A 'mad rush 1 would surely result in disaster. Sugar beets should first be raised for feeding live stock. Should the first experiment prove a success, then sugar beet culture may safely begone Into on a larger scale." WHAT good does a high tariff do the laboring classes unless foreign immigration is restricted? We now have the highest tariff ever enacted )n this country and yet wages in the »reat manufacturing centers of Ne England have been materially re duced since the enactment of the Dingleylaw. It it true that the good crops of the west and the great demand abroad for our surplus products have to som6 extent benefitted the farmers and the men employed in transporting our surplus products to the seaboard, but what would have been the condition of the people inder the Diugley tariff had there been no foreign demand for our sur plus food supplies? If the high tariff theory is right- it it is levied in the Interest of the laboring- classes of this country—then foreign immigration should be pro hibited. THE bane of American politics 1 ^ dishonesty. This is true to the; greatest extent of men chpsen to •erve in a legislative capacity. Our legislative hells are filled with lobbyists. The trusts and the corporations have representatives In congress and in the state legislatures. Bribery has become an open method •f securing favorable legislation. The time has come when more care should be exercised in the selection of legislators, state and national. Only men of unquestioned integrity should be chosen to legislate for the people. Men should be chosen who consider the rights ot the humblest citizen as the equal ot the rights of the most gigantic corporation. Many men in liigh places have become worshipers of money rather than representatives of manhood. The sugar trust, by its own admissions, has spent millions of dollars ttf secure the privilege of rob blng the people through legislation "We ought to have men in congress who will stand up for the suppression of trust robbery. Another Corporation Man. John W. Grlggs, who will succeed Judge McKenna in McKlnley's cabinet as attorney general, is a corpora' tlonman, He is the present gover nor of New Jersey. He served severa terms in the New Jersey senate and •roted against every bill in the inter ests of organized labor.

Leather coats are made of sheepskin, of horse hide and of dogskin, lined with corduroy, with flannel and with sheep's wool The corduroy lined coats are made reversible, so that they may be •worn either side out. The coats of sheepskin are nsnally finished black, the horse hide and dogskin coats russet colored. A leather coat of sheepskin, corditroy lined, costs about $5, horse hide coats sell for $12 to §15 and dog- skiu coats for $18. Leather coats are worn in the west by truckmen and policemen and hunters and lumbermen. The leather coat is serviceable and warm, without great bulk.. The duck shooter lying perhaps for hours in a battery, waiting, keeps warm in a leather coat. The sportsman alter big game wears a leather coat. It keeps the wearer warm without impeding his movements. A leather cout is sometimes worn under another coat for the sake of its warmth, as, perhaps, by a policeman. And the leather coat may be worn with the corduroy side out, so that more leather coats are worn here in cities than might be supposed.— New York Sun. Sized Up. "Are you the manager of this store?"

In Waukesha county, and particularly in the immediate vicinity of Pewaukee lake, between Watertowu and Madison, west of Baoine and in Dodge county, Milwaukee hunters enjoy their best sport m December and January, and with the first fall of snow a great many rabbits wore killed by looal sportsmen. In spite of the laws forbidding the use of ferrets hunters have evaded the vigilance of the game wardens, but unless they are securely muzzled the rodents seize the rabbits in their burrows and enjoy a feast while the hunter impatiently waits above for the reappearance of his quarry. With the new hunting apparatus, however, the hunter is equipped, with a device which is sure to drive the game to the surface and give him a shot. The cable is flexible, but sufficiently rigid o cause the iron bulb attached to it^to otate positively throughout the entire the posses*^! of an ancient colored man at Dal ton, 3a., around which are associated memories of many deeds of violence. In antebellum days the horn was tbe" property of Colonel Ben Longbridge, a wealthy planter of Murray county. It was originally used to summon his many slaves to work and to meals, and its welcome note at sunset was the signal for them to rest from the day's labors. After the-war the horn became separated from the Longbridge family, and from that time until a few months ago was the period of its stirring history. Murray county has for y.sars been a stronghold of the "moonshiners." Time after time the revenue officers made desperate raids on the illicit distillers,, ailing and being killed, yet never en- ;irely subduing the stubborn mountaineers. The mellow note of the old tin iorn would always warn the whisky rebels of the approach of their enemies, and many a man's death has it presaged. The moonshiners would station a lusty lunged sentinel on some proroi A Rival to Krupp's. By the consolidation of the two great irori manufactaring firms of Schneider and Canetof Paris, the heads of the two foundries visited President Faure recently and assured him that Prance now has an iron manufacturing plant rivaling the Krupp establishment in Germany.

Wash the outside ot the bird with the same preparation, and then carefully wash the whole bird again with fresh cold water. CATARRH OF THE STOMACH. A JPleasant Simple, But Safe Effectua Core for It. Oatanh of the stomach has long Fmi. ength of the burrow, following each (unification with a lateral, snakelike motion, and does not become entangled n the roots of bushes or trees. A depth f 20 feet can be reached successfully, and those who have used the device say t is infallible. The bulb should first be placed in the jurrow where the rabbit has taken refuge and then the bit brace revolved to he right, pushing on the cable at the same time. The bulb will follow all the deviations in the hole until it strikes the animal, which becomes sufficiently alarmed to leave its refuge and take to he opan. To withdraw the apparatus the operator should continue to revolve thfe brace to the right, but pull on the cable. The threads on the bulb and coupling are mado right handed, as are the strands of the cable. If the huater desires to smoke a rab bit out of his hole, he can fill the iron bulb with cotton waste saturated with kerosene or powdered sulphur and then heat the metal until the filling begin to smoke. After inserting the cable in the burrow one of the holes should be closed, and the rest is easy, providing the hanter is proficient in the use of a gun. This winter a number of hunters have also used a section of a garden hose, which they insert into the rabbit's burrow" and tbai use the hose for a speaking tuba A horrible racket is created by this method, and the game is scared ont, but the cable and bulb are said to be much more effective.—Milwaukee Sec- tineL Dun ETXTO Bullet Condemned. This use of the dum-dum bullet by the English in their warfare against the Indian and African border tribes is causing most unfavorable comment in military circles. The dum-dnm bullet is the name given by the Indian soldier to tine new projectile for the Lee-Mitford rifle specially prepared for use in India,. As experience in Chitral has Bhown, the original nickeled Lee-Metford lju.Het made a clean cut hole in the humum target.

To the "revenues" it always bore a dismal information that from the nest crag or bramble they might expect a slaying volley from their hidden foes. The venerable horn is ft special reminder of a notorious gang which terrorized the errantry up to within a year ago. Ic was UMiid to rally the forces of the gang and was often the preface to a bloody conflict between them and the law's representatives. When the gang, was finally disposed of, the horn passed into the possession of old Uncle Isaac, a typical "befo 1 de wah" negro, and the old man often brings it out and recounts its interesting history.—Baltimore Sun. Taught to Blush. A school where .blushing is taught is the latest novelty in Paris. If there is any place where blushing has become a lost art, one would certainly think it was Paris, btit the Parisians, on the other hand, declare that it is a result of Anglomania and the influence of the American girl. The yotmg woman who plays golf and rides a bicycle in "ra tionals" in the freest camaraderie with her male friends is likely to acquire a self poise which will make the flush of embarrassment a stranger to her cheek and the city where women are bicycling on the boulevard with their hare knee exposed has felt the necessity of a reac tion. The classic grace and simplicity of the early years of the century, with their accompanying downcast eyes an' simpers, are now in vogue again, an the maidens who have forgotten how- to blush are going to school to learn tha primitive art.
