As a. rule moil of tills class grnsp but one idea, Thoy do not reason. A single phrase has more weight with them Hiari the whole works of a. Bacon or a Locke. They are controlled by their hatred, and Urn tli-st step is to make them liato. There was more force In the word "Commune" than in all the- logic of Franco. The unjust and untruthful attack on the Integrity of the railroad men of r.ogansport was a serious matter. The .Toiirtiiil has not been a supporter of Democrat. 1 * but it does not believe them bad citixeiis. It does not believe that the Democratic railroad men arc as the Pharos says.' ThiU'thcy arc hypocrites, and will sign for sound money and vote against it. That Ihey are traitors, aud will Join a club and betray. it to its enemy, the Pharos. That (hey uro liars, ami will talk sound money openly and free silver secretly. That they arc cowards', and afraid to speak their honest convictions for fear of losing employment. That they, arc fools, ready to vote against their own interests and to destroy the employer who helps them earn their daily bread. Why should a. man 'hesitate to speak out for fear of losing his Job and then vo'tc to lose it? What sort of consistency Is this? What sort of intelligence? A I'ool has more sense than that. Against this unjust and scurrilous attack The Journal enters emphatic protest. If the Pharos concedes tTIe working man's vote gone and seeks to Influence the fanner., let the farmer know that there is not one word of truth in the Pharos statements, nor ground for its accusations. If the Pharos seeks to influence and prejudice only the most ignorant workingman let the public take care that this seed does not take root. Certainly tlie.intel- ligeucc and patriotism of this community c.an stamp, out the poisonous wood of anarchy. It would not be an unfitting thing for the Democrats who are thus maligned to wait upon the Pharos In a body and demand a retraction of these false and malicious utterances. • ' I thought you opposed ornci- HigKe* pf all in Leavening Power.—Latest U.

Thoy might fire;a man for being color blind under such circumstances. Can't tell what might happen when the right of way is being used for a cow pasture. The railroad men know how to assertl their rights and It is not at nil probable that they will bo "intimidated" either by tho Pharos or by their employers!

Johnson, who .has ; for years been one of the most enthusiastio ns'well as most successful propagators of the eilk worm in this country, has lecently finished o highly 'interesting; experiment with eggs received direct from Japan, where such a specialty is made of this branch of domestic industry. Miss Johnson having been engaged iii the work for quite a time, the inbreeding process had, it was found, lessened the value of the eggs obtained, ; consequently'the results were not as ' tatisfactory as could.be wished for. ' A few months ago, while KosukiTom- : coka, one'of the chaplains in charge of the prison interests in Hokido, where are located five institutions of this kind, .was visiting the Sherborn reformatory, Mrs. Johnson asked him if she could ob- lain eggs of the silk worm in his native .country.. Ho immediately gave her U' letter assisting tho superintendent to accomplish her purpose. As a result of this letter, there were mailed in two queer looking bamboo rolls about 50,000 eggs of the worm, these being sent on five different paper cards to which they were fastened by glue or some rlher adhesive substances. As soon as received in this country, the cg-gs wero placed..in a refrigerator, and later tho process of hatching was gone through with, but only about 1,000 of the eggs produced worms. This failure is attributed by Mrs. Johnson to the fact tihat perhaps the United States mail bngs, while coming from Japan, were brought In .too close contact with the Kteam pipe on the boat, and in that vyny the eggs were overheated. ', She has this satisfaction, however, jlhiit the worms brought forth have al,-ready! begun to produce silk, which ia the finest in color and texture of anything made in this country, as far as hjer, experience goes. The cocoons, ••njhich are now placed in brown paper .cornucopias that are homemade, arc wlhife in shade and of quite perfect formation. The variety of eggs is what is Vhow-a'in Japan as "Koishiman," and Avere: 'produced nt un institution founded by the silk industry guild for riiising worms.'. Another trial of egga from the some source will be bad. Mrs. Johnson has produced many thousands ot silk 'worms, and her silk exhibit at tlie Columbian exposition in Chicago was'greatly admired. She has but!.;re- ceiitly received from the coipinlfte'e'0u awards at the world's fair a pftrcbjh'enT, diploma and also a fine bronze modal for the woman's prison exhibit, of which the silk worm product'was a part. She has at present 124 mulberry trees growing in one of the yards of the institution, from which are regularly gathered leaves to feed the-worms,—Sprlng- (Mass.)

THE PURCHASE OF WIVES, I*, taken over $200,pOO every month to run the police department of Chicago. The amount varies according to the fines imposed at police board trials or extra men employed on extraordinary oi'nasions. For the month of .May check»\veredrawn for $29;,M0.24. From this amount thera was the usual reduction for the pension fund; for May the was $2,343,80. The actual paid to tha force, from the nmount amount EXPERIMENT IN SILK CULTURE. chief down to tfye-lowest in the department, was' the difference between the pension fund and the amountgiven. The 15th of each month is pay day in the department, unless Sunday falls on that date. On that day a wagon containing a paymaster, two specially* detailed oflicers and the driver, the last also a policeman, leaves the city hall in the morning. The wagon contains a bale, und it i;; full of checks—not cash. The driver knows the route. The paymaster lias the paj'roll. The first step is made at Battery D, of the First precinct. All the men of that precinct not on their beats ore lined up when the wngon arrives. The paymaster goes in wilh the payroll of that station nud checks for each man. The desk sergeant calls the roll and as each man answers he steps out of the ranks ajid receives the city treasurer's check for a mouth's services, according to rank, unless there is a deduction for fine. Checks for absentees and men on duty are laft with the captain. The captain's check isfor$137.50; thelieutenants'cheeks are for $120 each; sergeants', $100; that for each patrolman, $83.33, and of the inspector, $2.10. The chiefs check is always handed to him personally, if he is in the «ity, aud he always scrutinizes it to see if it calls for $500. That is his monthly salary. Then he deposits it in his bank. The pay wagon of the department is a gay outfit, built for the express purpose, and if some of the bold highwaymen of Chicago should conclude to hold it up as they do the cashiers of stores it ia not likely that they would be able to '•blow" the safe before assistance arrived, and the police are unusually alert on the 15th. If the wagon should be ten minutes late nt a station the whole force would be on the qui vive. The check of the city treasurer of Chicago, according to at) attache of the police department, is "good at any bank, saloon, or brewery." If there is a bank near the station the former always stocks up with cash the day before the monthly pay. If there is no ba.nk in the vicinity, the saJoons,or brewery, if there be one, cash the checks, as that usual'y means n "little business." There are 3,209 names on the payroll of the police department of Chicago. The chief comes first, with a salary of $500 a month.- The assistant, or deputy, follows with *300. The inspectors, four in number, get $210 each. The chief of detectives and captain rank alike on the payroll, each getting $187.50 a month. The lieutenants in the detective department get $141.CC each. The lieutenants of the regular force get $125 each; sergeants, $300 each; custodians $116.66; secretary of the department, $187.,SO; private secretary to the chief, $150; detectives, $.100 ench. The department, like similar depart' ments in all cities, comprises representatives from the principal na-tionsof the earth. The Irish are in the majority; then come the Swedes and Norwegians and Scandinavians. There are some colored men on the force, a few English and Scotch, nnd now and then an American. It is said by one who knows that there are not 100 men on the police force of Chicago vho come under the head usually known as "genuine Americans," although every man would resentbeing called anything else. The head of the department and his: nssistant and most of the captains are of foreign extraction, if not foreign born. — Chicago Chronicle.

Onr. ol the most objectionable forms of gaining a wife is to work for her, a habij; practiced among .many unclv-_ Tlized nations, its only advantage beinjj that a man can g«t a wife on cre3it, I though his father-in-law takes good care that ho serve* his time. Among some races you have to> do your work before you get your wife, as Jacob had to serve for Leah, and for Eachel. Marriage 'by exchange and purchase is not customary, among uncivilized nations 'only. In Central America and Peru a man has to work for his bride. In China a present Is given, by the father of the bridegroom, the amount of which is agreed upon by both the families. The Japanese make use'of a similar custom, though, in their case, the giving of presents is the most important part of the entire marriage ceremony, for afterYljese have been de-: ilivercd and formally accepted, neither of the contracting parties is able to go back. Wife purchase appears to have been the basis of Indo-European ' •marriage before the separation of the, 'peoples took place. . ..Manu mentions •the Asura form of .marriage as one of purchase, and according to Aristotle the ancient Greelcs~wcre in the habit of buying their brides, for in the Home'rlc age a maiden was called by a name which signified "one who brings her parents many oxen." The old Scandinavians believed that even tbc gods had paid a price for their wives, and in Germany the expression "to purchase a wife" was in vogue until the end of the middle .ages. The old inhabitants of Ireland and Wales were ' accustomed to buy their wives with gold nnd silver or land.
