JJPPJBR DES MOIN&S, ALGONA, IQlAj WEDMSDA Y, AMIL k 189L LGONA, IOWA. THE English authorities are investignt- gating the habit of ether drinking, which is said to b« spreading in that country . Ift this age of improvement it was to l>e expected that tho old labor "strike" would not long retain its simple features. The latest development of thi principle is where alleged labor leadern are charged with extortionate attempts to strike big employing firms for money to settle differences. LATEST NEWS CONDENSED, GENERAL NOTES. j discovery of unusual value is reported from Kamouraska, in Lower Canada. A Quebec correspondent states that nn entire mountain has been found composed of silicates, otherwise known as vitriflablo stone, of purity certified by the provincial engineer to nverngo 98 per cent. This material is une'J for the manufacture •of the finest gl IBS, and is boli -ved to exist nowhere else on the American continent in such purity. of the growth of the cooperative idea the carpenter's brotherhood of Philadelphia has just projected a co•operative scheme. Its plan is to bo an ar- •rangement by which the building trades, including everything from stone masons to fresc >otit shall form one grand organi' zatioii employing 30,000 men. This organization will make contracts, erect buildings, employ workingmon and divide the profits among the men themselves. PuiiLto OPINION, the electric weekly of Washington and New York, has just announced the offer of throe cash prizes of •$150, *100 and $50 respectively for the best three ossuya upon tho question. "Is any extension and development of trade between the United States and Canada desirable; if HO what are tho Inst means of promoting it?" The topic ia particularly timely and tho contents will doubtless attract considerable attention. SOJIK weeks ago all the papers were aflame with stories of tho devotion of some gentleman who each gave an inch of skin to close up a wound upon a comrade. From tar-away Oregon comes an instance of do- votion manifold greater than that shown by the Sir Knights, performed by a slight girl of eighteen, Ida Harness, and so quietly done that it has not been heard of in newspapers. Her skier's hand had been crushed in a mangle. To make it whole again, into the wound was grafted nine pieces of skin; each about an inch in diameter, cut from our heroine's arm. The doctor feared the use of any anesthetic, and so, in full consciousness, she hat with her arm hanging over tho bedside, the blood flowing into a pan beneath, while one by one, tho successive pieces wore being cut, all this without a whimper.

SHOP CIRIS (MASTED. The Difference Between the London Shop Girls and Those In This Connlry, Many of the London Girls Attired in Fine Silks, With no Care for Food. What One Sees in the Great Shop of Whiteley the Provider of All Things. WASHINGTON. A omiAii was made recently at the premises an Park-row, Leeds, lately occupied by the Prudential insurance company, of coal- saving composition which has been invented by Mr. W. C. Owston. The composition, says tho Iron and Coal Trader's review, is a chemical compound resembling fine sand, and one of the principal properties claimed for it is that when sprinkled on an ordinary fire, after it has been made up, it ensures thorough combustion, all the gas and tar, which in the ordinary way is allowed to pass off in smoke up the chimney, being consumed. The modus operandi is very simple, all that is required to bo done being to sprinkle about half an ounce of the composition over the fire. A chemical reaction takes place in the coal, and the top of -ihff\(jro becoming cemented together, gradually eomfci^es all of the tar and black smoke given^offi while the heat, instead of escaping through th'i top of the fire, is thrown out into a room. Although the fire is about half burnt out, nothing but coke remains, and it gives off a great heat. Tho composition is»not however, suitable for use with a coke fire. IN CHILLI. There is such a thing as civilised warfare, but the Chilians seem not to be aware of that fact. They are engaged in wholesome butehery, though they call it a contest for principle. The insurgents caught Colonel Robies mapping lately, and they make him pay heavily for his blunder. He underrated the enemy—an error which Grant could never forgive in his generals —and it cost him his life. Tho insurrectionists put eleven bullets into him, and then their blood fairly boiled. His wounded officers, instead of being kept as captives or held for exchange, were cut to expeu- for it is was au pieces where they lay. It sive fray for the rebels, licwever, •j^__ »wu a ^^^HK-^ estimated that five hundred of them were killed and four hundred were wounded. Tho little Republic is being shaken to its centre. A good sized reign of terror prevails everywhere. Both parties are desperate and no quarter is given. The insurgents have the navy, but President Balinaceda controls the land forces; and though ho pretends to entertain no doubt of ultimate victory, it is clear that tho situation is very serious. A large number among the best and richest Chilian citizens are in sympathy with tho insurgents. That fact has roused tho anger of Ualma- ceda, who, it is reported, has imprisoned many and confiscated the estates of others. Altogether the people are in ead straits, a well developed sheol exists there. FOREIGN. CHILIAN rebels have captured all but two of the government's war ships. GERMANY and Austraia have cone nded a comcrcial treaty. BEKLRVILLE, Ont., has been damaged $50,000 by high water. THE Allan steamship company of Glasgow, has purchased the state lines vessels and tho good will of the company. KAMIASATRA, the governor of Beladona, by whose orders 278 persons were masa- cred, has been executed. QUEEN VICTORIA on Monday left England for a visit to tho south of France. COAJ, is selling at $55 a ton in Chili, the supply having been cut off by the revolutionists. ( GREAT preparations are bying made at 'Grasse for Queen Victoria's annual visit thither. THE London News states that the Italian authorities will take active steps to force America to give satisfaction for the •mobbing of Mafit prisoners. RUMORS are current that another conflict has occurred between the English and the Portuguese on the Limpopo river.

THE president has appointed Joseph C. Painter, of Walla Wafla county, Wash., to be receiver of public moneys at Walla Walla, Wash, vice Robert McNally, deceased. AN effort is being made by the friends of Commander B. H. McCalla of the navy to have his sentence of suspension revok"- ed. The term of his suspension from rank of duty began May 15, 1890, and continues three years. THE continued warlike news from Chili renders it likely that the Charleston will be sent along with the San Francisco to join the Baltimore and Pensacola in those waters. A COMMITTEE of colored gentlemen called on President Harrison and asked that they be given representation at the coming fair. They also desire that a colored man be placed on the bench for the federal judiciary. It is a very difficult thing to get from employers in England any information about their employes, their habits of their compensation. I made application to the four largest establishments in London, including Whiteley's, for some information about their working people, but every one save Whiteley politely refused. This man, keeping the most curious and unique shop in Great Britain, ordered that ever.,- thingbe shown to mo,, even to the pay roll of his employes. I spent a long time in this queer store, where there are more than four thousand men and women employed in handling its many departments. 1 was permitted to talk freely with both men and women workers of the various grades, from the joung shop girl just entering as aad apprentice to the high class saleswomen who commands a large salary. Whiteley presided over a strang mingling of commercial elements. He does not j Eretend to be a merchant, and announces imselfas"a general provider." When you come to investigate what this means, you find a great store stocked with everything to eat, drink and to wear that human imagination can conceive. He has a meat market and a bank, a green grocery and a life insurance company, a theatrical ticket office, livery stable, undertaker's shop, biass band, singers, actors, chiropodists, barbers, and in fact every sort of thing needful to the human family. Ho prides himself that no costomer can send an order to him for anything in the world that he will not furnish him even to a wife. YOU PAY THE BILL, THAT'S ALL. Hs takes absolute charge of your household affairs, and unless you choose you need not have any concern about your larder, wine cellar or residence except lo pay the bills when he renders them. His buildings, in which he carries on his vast dealings, cover acres of ground. The character of wages paid arid the general conduct of the business is a marvel and one of the greatest curiosities of commercial life in the world. There is nothing like it in our own country, and could not be, because our people prefer to look after the daily routine of their family affairs rather than to trust to a "general employ what may be called the high grade of help claim to get more and better work out of their employes, because they are relieved from all anxiety as to maintenance and have practically no cares. They claim that girls and women who live at hoine and provide for themselte are apt lo keep late hours, have uncomfortable homes and often little or no food to eat-.•- -This unfits them for the duties of the day. The question of wages is always an important one, and whatever money is paid to the working women or shop girls in these big stores is «o much a year over and above their board and loging. In Whiteley's establishment the wages run from £20 to £50 a year for the female clerks. Out of this they_are only obliged to provide their clothing. LESS PAY BUT MOnE FREEDOM. A shop girl in New York wou'd think she was doing pretty well to receive from $2 to $12 a week over and above her living expenses even if she did have to wear black silk dresses every day when she reached the £70 grade. The shop girls here having her clothing to purchase has a big advantage over Her sister in the United States. Tie purchasing power of a dollar so far as clothing is concerned is double here what it is in our country. But I imagine that our independent American girl would prefer to struggle along with the meagre salary most of them receive, with the power to come and go as they pleased, rather than to live in a cockloft over the store and have no core as to what she shall aat and where she shall sleep but be obliged to live up to certain rules and be in the house every night at eleven o'clock. From every standpoint the women whd wait behind the counters MI 1 tend the lunch stands at the different railroad stations or hand liquor over the bar are better off than tb.3 woman who is obliged to labor in tho United States. The shops here do not open before nine o'clock in the morning and close early in the evening. _ Thus the^purs are shorter with the English shop girls and the work as a rub lighter. Having her home under the same roof or adjoining the place where she works, there are no expenses > for car fare and a dozen other little incidentals that are imposed upon the American working girl. Having no concern as to food and lodging and being able to purchase her clothes at a very low price, her $100 a year or ail the way up to $350 enables her to live comfortably and. always appear gentle and happy. Unless family drains tike all she can make if easy. Being paid weekly, they can get the best results out uf their earnings and keep money always in hand for pleasure and necessities. In shops of the lower tilve Them Back their Co an try. It is not surprising that the sufferings . of the Russian Jews from persecati and ill-treatment have at last aroused t sympathy of many of the thinking peo- pie of the United States. A large ttuni- ber of prominent persons have united in a memorial to President Harrison asking him and the secre ary of the state, to use iheir good offices and influence with the governments of their imperial majesties the Czar of Russia, Victoria, William II. of Germany, and the rulers of Austto-Hungary, 1'urkey, Italy, Spain and the remaining governments of Europe "for an international conference of the Israelites and their claims to Palestine as their ancient home, and to promote in all other just and proper ways the alleviation of their suffering condition." The petition says: "Why shal 1 notthepowers which, under the treaty of Berlin in 1878, gave Bulgaria to the Bulgarians and Servia to the Servians, now give Palestine back to the Jews." The action sanctioned by many influential men and women in our large cities, shows the true spirit of Christianity. The unreasonable persecution of the unfortunate race was in keeping with the crude superstition and brutality of the middle ages, but to continue it in any form during the nineteenth century, as has been done in France, Russia, and other European countries, and in milder forms elsewhere, proves that some of the modern people are still governed by ignorance and prejudice not far removed from their fourteenth century ancestors. The higher classes of the Jews have in various instances in the past decade shown themselves much more liberal toward the Christian than the latter has toward him. It is to be hoped that the efforts made ••$• to restore to this scattered peoplu their_j lost country may prove successful, and as i Biblical prophecj is thus fullfilled, every v act of injustice toward them should then cease.

THE NUDE IN ART. Artist Utters a Protest Against Protestors. the Protests against tho nude in art are absurd, and come almost exclusively from the Puritanical class, says William M Chase in^the New York "Morning Journal." The recent protest made by a number of Philadelphia women against the exhibition of certain works in the Academy of Fine Arts in that city has re- AT Anderson, Ind., Lizzie Bond, aged 20, was struck by a train Tuesday moruiiic 1 and instantly killed. b Mils.

KATE DISTWIMCU of Cantor, (>., hanged herself while insane from the grippe. x TUB man who recently 'committed sui- awakened discussion on this important sub. ject. The works objected to include a number of studies by Kenyon Cox, of this city, and have natural'y created more or less discussion among artists here. While it. is not my intention to criticise the artistic sense of tho women of Philadelphia, 1 think their position is a false one. Among the ancients drawings of the nudn figuro were never consided from any save tho artistic standpoint. I will admit that many of the works of modern French artists are improper for general exhibition, but in the Philadelphia case there is, I think, little to criticise. It has been often shown that no school of art can bo highly successful without the pursuit of certain studies. While these may be objectionable to a minority of the artistic world, they are indorsed by all lovers of true art. This question has for years been agitated not only in this city, but in other cities throughout the country. The advocates of nude art have been earnest and have argued each point with vehemence. Its opposers always bring false arguments to bear on tho question of delicacy. The prude heads this perennial crusade. I think the artist who fails to study nature in any form or shape does himself and the world an injustice. There is no occasion to caution my follow artists on this score. They have well defined and thoroughly reliable examples to follow, and even if.Phillailelohia women, or the women of any other city, see fit to criticise them thev will not be deterred from carrying out their ideas. provider." We have larger stores, but none directed upon such a novel plan as Whiteley's. I began a tour of the place and was given an opportunity to talk with any of the employes I desired and to question them without the surveillance of the young man who was assigned to the duty of taking_me Evbout. One thing was always noticeable, that was the neatness in dress and the good manners and politeness of the attendants. In most instances this was in marked contrast with the half pet- ulent manner in which shop girls are apt to wait upon customers in the United States. Then the uniformity in dress among the women clerks is very attractive. The tight fitting black gowns, relieved with white at the neck and the wrists, set off their figures to perfection and their good manners make shopping a- pleasure instead of a trouble. Tidiness in dress as well as politeness in speech are valuable requisites for the English working girl, and they cultivate these graces to th"e limit order, where women are employed and not | housed and fed by the proprietor, the rate of wages runs from 85 to $10 a week, which means double that amount of money in our land of freedom. A DARK SIDE, TOO. Spiers and Pond, who have all tho railway stations _ in the United Kingdom, keep some six thousand 'employes. A thousand ot these are girls who wait upon the lunch counters as the trains comes in. They have nice rooms for their accommo- if they places. want to succte'd and keep'-their According to the observatory, a publication issued by the authorities at Greenwich, tbe lowest temperature reached in December last was 13° 4, registered on the 22d. The last half-centry in England has produced only three instance of temperature as low or lower than that of December lust. The result of the recent expedition to Ureo-ilana prove that north of 75° the lands are covered with iv sheet of ice 5000 to 6000 feet thick of the valleys. PRINCESSES DRESS NO BETTER. How they dress and look so well is a puz-de to the American mind until careful inquiry is made. The saleswomen in the dress and cloak department of the great establishments like Whiteley's, or the sweller shops in Regent or Bond street, are the best dressed women in England, save those who dress for show in the afternoon and evening, with plenty of means to indulge their tastes for handsome garments. They wear tight fitting black silk gowns of rich pattern, withdemi-trains. They are usually tall, fine looking women, and as they go about their business they make a very interesting contrast with the regular female customer who has run out in her morning gown to do a little shopping. They have tact, plenty of patients,' and, as a rule, a good knowledge of human nature. They are brought into contact something it would be remarkable. It is by no means easy to measure and contrast the different classes of female labor as we find it hero and in the United States. Nearly all the stores where women are employed board their help, both male and feuia'e. Rooms are fitted up for their accommodation in the upper stories, and they are obliged to accept the conditions the merchant imposes unless they happen to be married. Then they are permitted to sleep at home, with an extra allowance for room rent. There is usually a large parlor provided with a piano, a library with books and other arrangements for the entertainment of the girls after working hours. Wine or beer is usually served at dinner, and some of the higher grades of employes have their choice of beverages. Lectures and smoking concerts are quite frequent and a great deal of care is taken by the employer to keep his help in good temper. NOT THE AMERICAN IDEA. The restrictions which this mode of life imposes would be very obnoxious to an American girl. The doors of these great lodging houses, as they may properly be called, are closed at eleven o'clock at night and there is no admission after that hour. The moral effect of this housing of a large number of young women together may be questioned, but it does not seem to disturb the average conditions of English lifr. It would seem to an American to be more or less demoralizing, but the' lives of these people seeni to be so settled that nothing affects them. They are not seriously disturbed by • ambitions, and appear quite satisfied to r.emain clerks as long as they are obliged to labor. From their standpoint, then, they are well off, for they have no care as to where they shall sleep or how they shall get souieth'ing to eat. Tho care with which a merchant looks after the fiJixeioBi- -?lfare of his working people.'' | '" ', Those who / j dation fitted up over the depot, and they can have whatever to _ eat or drink they please. Between trains they can read, go to their rooms and lie down, or do whatever they please, if they apportion their work out properly among themselves, They are a favorite class of employes, and receive $2.50 a week over and above their living expenses, to say nothing of a tip now and then. While these higher classes of female labor are well paid here and well cared for there are many sad stories of struggle and wrong that greet you on every hand in an investigation of these phases of English life. Many classes of working women are not only paid a pittance, but are sadly ill- treated. The women who do the real drudgery in the workrooms of even the large stores have long hours and hard woi«. The stories of misery that could be told of many an attic in this great city, would fill volumes. There are thousands upon thousands of women, young and old, working here for loss than enough to keep soul and body together. "Sweating" is practiced more freely in this crowded mart than in any of our large cities. Competition here is exacting to the cruelty point, and the poor who have to labor, suffer suffer in consequence. FRANK A. BURR. ELECTRIC LIGHTS IN JERUSALEM. The Araba and Jewes Confouned by the New Lights. A traveler who has recently visited Jerusalem, tell of the sensation produced there last month by the introduction of elsctric lights, just four years after gas light was first seen there. The electric plant is used in a large flour mill adjoining the supposed site of Cavalry, and close to Damascus gate. If tho Arabs and Jews were filled with wonder at the flaming gas jets in 1887, they wore confounded when they saw the light of electricity in 1891. Many of them are so alarmed that they hardly dare to look at it, and the Moham- medans call upon tne Projiheb for safety. They ask what it is, where it comes from, and how the magicians make it. When told that it is the same thing as lightning, they become still more mystified, ask how it can be caught or held, and take care to keep at a respectable d ; stance from it. "Perhaps," says the traveler, "the day is not far distant when the streets and houses of' Jerusalem.may be lighted by e'ectricity, and even when Palestine, long desolate, shall blossom like the rose." There > is reason to believe that, with the completion of the railroad line from Jaffa to'Jerusalem, and with the construction of other new lines, Palestine will attract far greater multitudes of pilgrimes than have been seen there since the Crusades, According to a recent dispatch to the Sun, a steamer put in at Java on Tuesday of last week with two hundred and twenty-five passengers, who proceeded to Jerusalem, accompanied by a band of musicians. In coursa 'of time the children! of Israel who once held Palestine, and who yet chant the songs of Jerusalem all over the world, may be induced to revive the prosperity of the Holy Land.—New York Sun.
