LEADING- Democrats in various see lions of the country are frankly nd- mltllnff tbe hopeleaenes 8 of tbe outlook for Democratic success. United Statea Senator John M. Palmer of Illinois, a leader of the Democratic party in that-State when asked con- earning- the outlook for the -Democracy of that State replied. "It hae no outlook. Every man in tbe party is looking out for himself and eating the others up " Ex.Governor Campbell of Ohio was recently Interviewed by a representative Of the Cleveland World on the chances of the Democrats in the Buckeye State. He said: "In order to achieve a Democratic victory a change of 70,000 votes would be necessary.- The change from 188,000 Republican plurality in 1894 to a Democratic plurality In 1895 hardly aocme possible." THE pardoning power has baan so greatly abused by governors in many of tbe States that the appoint ment of pardoning boards to consider all applications is being strongly advocated in some sections. In Pennsylvania, Ohio and eome other Statea tho Governor can only grant pardons on ihe recommendation of the board of pardons, The power of pardon vested with tho Governor has been abused in this as in other States. Speaking of the recent publication of the list of pardons granted in Dela- .waro by Governor Reynolds during his term In office which expired the first of the year the Wilmington, Del., Morning News said: "The average number of prisoners in Delaware Is two hundred, so that there was pardoned each year seven and one-half per centum of the prisoners confined in the various prisons, and this in a population of about 170,000 persons." Along tbe same line a Pennsylvania exchange recently contained the following: < In nearly every cose where the pardoning power rests solely in the hands of the governor an abuse of It IB reported during the last few days and hours of the official life of a state's executive. Governor Flower of New York, granted a number of pardons in this way. Governor Peck of Wisconsin ended his two burlesque administrations by pardoning fourteen criminals, and other outgoing govern,ors, among whom was Levelling of Kansas, showed their clemency by pardoning state's prison convicts. The most discouraging thing; about this executive clemency U that It is exercised so often in favor of mur. derers. During the three years'terra of Governor Flower he pardoned or commuted the sentences of-sixty-six murderers, or an average of twenty-two a year, and . six of the criminals who found favor with Governor Peck just before he took his plunge into tha obscurity of private life were murder, era and serving life sentences. The record in Rhode Island, where they do not hang for murder, le forty-five conviction* since 18S8 for murder and twenty-two pardons to convictions. One of these murderers served only eight months before he was set free by the governor. Governor Altgeld of Illinois had been in office only a few months before he had released forty murderers from prison, and while his record in this respect since may not have been so offensive, it appears certain that^he will leave office two years hence with the largest number of pardons for murderers to his credit that any governor of Illinois ever had. This is a discouraging record when it is remembered how difficult it hae become to secure convictions for murder in the Oral degree and how rapidly the orimo of murder is increasing. The most trustworthy record puts the number of murders in this country at 5,906 in 1891, at 6.791 in. 189?, at 6,615 in 1893 and at 9,800-ln 1894, and yet while the murders last year increased nearly 50 per cent over the previous year the legal executions In. creased only six. Another proof of the reluctanCA of juried to convict and the delay* and obstacle* that can be thrown In the way of executions is a compariion between the conviction i lecured now In Federal courts in homicide trial* and during the first forty years ot the existence of the government. From 1789 to 1829, out of 138 tri«0i under United Statea law* for murder there were 118 conviction* but In 1890. out of 120 luoh trial*, there were only ilzteen conviction*. ABOUT CLAY EATEES. The Disgusting Habit IB Common In All Countries. Trlbel of Indian* Who Mix Mad with Their Bread—Som» Slnmlur B«»- «ons for tbe Abominable Practice. Amonpr' the extraordinary passions for eating uncommon things mast be reckoned that which some people exhibit for eating earth or clay. Of this practice, which -would appear to have once prevailed all over the world, says the Philadelphia Times, numerous examples were cited by Capt. J. G. Bourke United States army, in the ninth annual report of the burean of-ethnology In some places the custom has deg-en crated into a ceremonial, while ii others the eating of this strange food still prevails as a kind of necessity to the lives of those who arc addicted to|it. The Mexican devotees picked up a piece of clay in the temple of Tezcatli- poca and ate it with the greatest reverence, and also ate a piece of earth in swearing by the sun and earth. But the use of clay by the Mexicans was not merely a matter of ceremony, for tbe substance seems to have been an esculent in common use. Edible earth was sold openly in the markets of Mex ico and appears in the list of foods given by Gomara. Cabeza de Vaca says that the Indians of Florida rite clay, and that the natives ofEored him many mesquite beans which they ate mixed with earth. Vcne gas asserted that the Indians of California ato earth. The traditions of the Indians of San Juan Capistrano and vicinity show that they had fed upon a kind of elay which they often used upon their heads by way of ornament. Tho Tatu Indians of California, according to Powers, mix red earth into their acorn broad to make the latter sweet and cause it to go further. Sir John Franklin writes that the banks of tbe Mackenzie river contain -layers of ; kind of -unctuous mud which the Tin neh Indians used as food during the seasons of famine, and oven nt other times chow as an amusement. It has a milky taste and the flavor is not disagreeable. The Apache and Navajo branches of the Athabascan family of North American Indians are not un acquainted with the use of clay us a comestible, although amon£ the former it Is now rarely used, and among the latter is employed only as a condiment to relieve c the bitterness of the taste of the wild potato. In the same manner it is known to both the Zuni and the Tusaynn. In South America, likewise, the eating of clay prevails among the Indians on the banks of the Orinoco, throughout Brazil and on the mountains of Bolivia and Peru. In western Africa the negroes of Guinea have long been known to eat a yellowish earth called by them "caouac," and the flavor and taste of which is very agreeable to them and said to cause them no inconvenience. Some addict themselves so excessively to the use of it that it becomes to them a real necessity, and no punishment is sufficient to restrain them from the practice of consuming it. When the Guinea negroes were hi former times carried as slaves to the West India islands they were observed to continue the custom of eating clay. But the "caouac" of the American islands, or the substance which the poor negroes attempted to substitute in their now homes for the African earth, was found to injure the health of the Flaves who ato it, and so tbe practice was long ago forbidden and has possibly now died out in the West India colonies. In Martinque, a species of red earth or yellowish tufa was formerly secretly sold In the markets, but the use of it has probably ceased In the French colonies also. In eastern Asia a similar practice prevails in various places. In the Island of Java, between Somnvbaya and Samarang 1 , Labillardlere saw small square reddish cakes of earth sold In the villages for tho purpose of being eaten. Those were found by Ehrenberg to consist for the most part of the remains of microscopic animals and plants which had lived and been deposited in fresh water. Some of the Japanese, too, are addicted to the practice of eating earth. Dr. Love, some time ago, published an analysis of a clny which k eaten to a considerable extent by the Ainos; It occurs in a bed several feet thick in the valley of Tsio-tonal (cat-earth valley) on the north coast of Yesso. It is light gray In color and of fine structure. The people mix with the clay fragments of the leaf of some plant for tho aromatic principle it contains. They eat the earth because they think it contains some beneficial substance, not because i* is a necessity with them. They have meat and abundance of vegetable food. The clay is eaten in the form of a soup. Several pounds are boiled with lily roots in a small quantity of water, and afterward strained. The Ainos pronounce the soup very palatable. In Eunjut valley, in the Sikkim Him- alaaas, a red clayioccnrs which the natives chew, especially as a cure for the goitre. In Smith's "Aborigines of Victoria," it is stated that a kind of earth, pounded and mixed with the root of the "mene" (a species of Haemadorum), Is eaten by natives of west Australia. MR. CURZON'S CAREER. Hits teller 1 * Hoxband Is • Man of COB- •Iderable ImU-Hdnilltr- Hon. George N. Curzon, who has Just married tho handsome daughter of Lev! Z. Letter, of Washington and Chicago, is a member of parliament lor Southport, Lancashire, which position he haa" ; held since 1886. In 1890-91 he was nn- der^ecretary for India. His house at. Derbyshire Is called Kedleston ball* and his town honee is at 5 Carleton ter- race, London! Mr. Cnrzon nafi? eled a great deal in the east and is an authority on oriental topics. His numerous journeys have taken him to .China, Siam, Burmah, India, Persia, and only in January last he returned from Afghanistan, where he was received by the ameer at Kabul. Mr. Cnrzon has written several interesting HON. OEOBOE N. CUBZOX, M. P. books of travel, showing a close observation of the manners and customs of the countries which he has visited and of which lie has written. Among the books are "Russia in Central Asia," "Persia" and "Problems of the Far East." Mr. Curzon's books have attracted considerable attention in this country, and by them he is known among- the literary people of New York and New England quite as well as if he had lived there all his life; Hn has visited America and is not a stranger in Washington. The groom attended All Souls', of Oxford, of which he is an M. A. and a fellow. He was born on January 11, 1850, and is some eight years the senior of his bride. Mr. Ciirzon is ono of a family of eleven children, all of whom are living but one. His brother, next in ag-e, is captain of the Third Battery of Sherwood Foi-eslers, Derbyshire regiment, and is connected by marriage witli the old family of Rokeby, whose names are only, found now in the list_of extinct peerages. Tie h;is another brother who has taken his B. A. at Oxford. Of his sisters, Sophia is tho wife of Rev. Charles MacMichael, vicar of Stanton-in-Peak, Derby. Upon the death of the present Baron Scarsdalo the plain Georg* N. Curzon will succeed to the title of the house, and Miss Latter will be her ladyship, with all the honors that that title implies among the oldest families in England. RIDES A BICYCLE. Dr. A. Conan Doyle. Phyiiclan, Author and Wheel Crank. When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hopes seem hardly worth having, just mount a bicycle, writes the author.of "Sherlock Holmes," in Demorest's Magazine, and go for a good spin down the road, without thougtit of anything but the ride you aro taking. ' I have, myself, ridden tho bicycle most during my practice as a physician and during my work in letters. In tho morning or the afternoon, before or after work, as tho mood o'ertakes me. I mount the wheel and am off for a spin of a few miles up or down the road from my country place. I can only DB. . COS AS DOTLB. speak words of praise for tho bicycle, '.or I believe that its use is commonly jeneficial and not at all detrimental to xealth, except in the matter of beginners who overdo it The bicycle craze seems to me to be only in its infancy, for probably in time we shall witness the spectacle of our mslness men going to their offices mounted on the bicycle, instead of us- ng the tramways. As for the bicycle being more popular .. America than ,-in England, I am rather inclined to believe, from what I lave seen in both countries, that its >opularity on sides of the water, among Dnglish speaking- people, Is a pretty :ven thing.

Intelligence an Important Facto* In tho Bake shop. Th« Staff of X.II* as Produced by Baki Is Foueued ot But I.HU* Sustaining Power — A Three-Cent Luncheon. "With brains, sir," was the cclebrttt- ed rejoinder of Sir Joshua Reynolds to the question ot an inquisitive and probably shallow young painter who asked him with what he mixed his colors. Is brains tho ingredient that was left out ol the loaves which were exhibited at the pure food show? as,ks Kato Field's Washington. Four hundred competing loaves all fell short ol the standard, if it is reported fairly. If is more generous to believe, however that the standard has been raised bj an intelligence which means to cduatte the community, In New York a few exclusive bakers advertise "high-class bread" at high- class prices; actually it is not too good. But brains in Boston, joined with bro'th- erly kindness, have produced bread which may challenge any competition and which is sold to the public in tiny loaves, perhaps better called long rolls at oue cent apiece; faultless breiud. sweet as the wheat can make it, but not sweeter; light and fine and close: exquisitely baked in the mild, slow heat of a brick oven. This bread, such as the rich seldom taste, comes daily from the New England Kitchen for all w'ho are so fortunate as to be able to send for it. It is the product of the intelligence and philanthropy of a society for the promotion of public health. When the \-itchen was organized a few years ago its first six months' working was supervised by Mrs. Mary Abell, wlio had taken tho Lamb prize for an essay upon sanitary and economic cooking. This essay, accompanied by recipes ar.d menus for the poorest wage earners, is among the publications of the Syracuse public health society. Proof of the economy and excellence- of the cooking of the delightful Boston Kitchen may be made by anyone who is hurrying, as I once was, to the Providence depot without time for lunch and with ideas above a railway station restaurant. I was provided with a small paper box. I bought one of the little loaves I have just described; it nearly filled tho box. For another cent it wait buttered. ,What else could I carry? I. was offered a slice of spiced pressed, meat, such as is made very poorly in, some houses and called veal loaf. But, that was not poor, but delicate and savory. It was daintily wrapped in white paraffine paper, all ready to bo handled neatly. This was also ono cent. Here was a wholesome, delicate and abundant lunch for three cents. I thought of Franklin, opening his career in Philadelphia with his big Dutch penny roll, and, like him, I indulged in some philosophizing. One hundred and fifty years of what we call "progress" separate us from Franklin. In those years the era of homemade bread, with that of homespun clothing, has departed. And still we have no good public bread—only the chaffy and spongy baker's loaf, overraised, undermixed, deceitful and dear. Poor men cannot be fed with such bread, and BO they wash it down with spirits. We are a great people and we have the greatest chain of lakes and the biggest rivers and the widest wheat-fields on. the globe; but we are not able to give the multitude bread until it has been turned into carbonic acid gas for the profit of the bakers. In feudal days the lord of the manor had the monopoly of the oven; no bread for the peasant but that which was baked in his oven. By tbe independence and competition of the laborer we have attained the privilege of starving ourselves. Is it not almost time to swing back to the public oven, supervised by the best intelligence of the community, and secured against the greed of competition? There is not wanted free bread to deprave the soul, or sour bread to deprave the stomach, or high-class bread to suit the rich; but honest bread, fit to be called once more the staff of ]ii»s BIG PRICES FOR FURNITURE. Auctioneer. Talk ot th« PrlY»te Sale ot IHch Mep'i Effect*. A party of auctioneers en route from Chicago to Buffalo were in the smoking- room of a Lake Shore sleeper the otber night telling stories. "Selling horses and farm stuff by auction is all right," said one, "but for genuine fun give me the private sale of a rich man's furniture. When Anthony Drexel died there were a lot of th'ings which had personal reminiscences connected with them which everyone wanted. It was finally decided to hold a family auction and sell them to the. highest bidder. Tbe first thing I put up was a small clock, worth, I suppose, about twenty dollars. " '111 give five hundred dollars,' was the first bid. It came from a nephew. " 'Make it one thousand dollars," interjected a younger son. "'Fifteen hundred dollars,' replied the nephew. "The ne.phew won and got the twenty- dollar clock for money with which-he could have bought the finest clock ia Philadelphia. I never x kne-iv whatth* history of the clock was, but itnmrt h»re had a peculiar one. Then I put HD ft biff arm-chair. It was the cb*lr Drexel had satin lor over'twenty yean and it had a valuable association for each one of the family. A married daughter and young Anthony Drexel were the ones who wanted It the most, and the bidding, which opened at one thousand dollars, was spirited and lively. I finally sold tho chair to Anthony for six thousand five hundred dollars. The day's sales brought in over twenty-five thousand dollars." "I never had anything as good as that," said another auctioneer, "but I sold tb\ Childs effects in the same way. The chief contest was over one of those old-fashioned tall clocks. Childs' eldest son finally bought it for eighteen hundred and fifty dollars, and it is now hi tho Ledger office in Philadelphia." PHYSIC WITH YOUR PIE. The 'Food Care'* a New VTrlnkl* Am«nft- Doctor! ID Knjrland. The "food cure," is a comparatively new idea, introduced into England by several physicians of advanced ideas, who boldly advanced the proposition that they can cure ordinary human ills by dieting and without the iise of medicines, says the New York Mail and Express. They claim that certain foods contain all the elements neccssiu-y to effect cures; that they have made up a list which embraces tonics, febrifuges, diuretics, and, in fact, c\-ory medicinal agent that is defined in the pharmacopoeia. These foods arc of the simplest character, but the English doctors do not disclose them, except to thoir patients. They say that in the course of ten years there will not be one-third the medicine used -that is used to-day, and they point out the fact that the sale of quinine and all antipyretics has decreased in the last five years to a remarkable degree. "There is a good deal of common sense in the idea," said a physician who had heard of the new departure, "and it may take if doctors generally will go into it, but I fear patients will not. Why? Well, you might convince a man that he was getting sufficient iron for his system when ho was eat- injr beef, or that if he needed starch be could get it from bread instead of from pills, but you couldn't do that with a. woman. They do not reason that way; I am speaking" especially of patients, slightly hypochondriacal when I say they would reject such treatment immediately; but, as a general tiring, you can apply the rule to all womankind. "Advice as to exercise or diet is generally lost. The average woman wants to take medicine, and if it Is very disagreeable she imagines it is very efficacious. She gradually gets a mania for pills and potions, and takes delight in dosing everybody who will submit. Now, if a doctor can readily help her condition by giving- her bread pills with a hypnotic suggestion, I think it Is his duty to do so, and collect his fee. He might as well whistle down the north wind as to make a woman believe that exercise and diet are better than medicine. II he is overly conscientious and abandons the case another fellow comes along- and gets it, so the natural temptation Is to cater to a patient's whims."
