p^fir;;: Till-: KKl'UBUUASf, ALJONA, IOWA, THEffi PLANS MADE SILVER MEN TO SATIONAL FURNISH A INCIDENT. SEN- AVlll Jlnlte a Pipit For Free Coinage and, If Defeated, Leave the Hall—Teller of Colorado to Mnttc the Valedictory Severing the Ties. ST. Lons, Jnuc 15—Senator Dubois of Idaho and Representative Hartmaii of Montana have joined Senator Teller of Colorado here. There is no longer doubt of the purpose of these radical silver men to bolt the action of the convention unless they can have their way about the financial plank. They realize that they are in a hopeless minority and they have carefully laid their plans to walk out of the convention. The pro- gramme they have arranged will probably furnish the most dramatic and sensational incident of the convention. MUSt NOt DO BUSINESS. temporary injunction Against the National Manufacturing Company. MILWAUKEE June 15.—A special to The Wisconsin from Dartfofd, Wis., says : Judge Burnell, on motion of Attorney General Mvlrea, has granted an order restraining the National Manufacturing company of this city from doing business in any way, pending a hearing on a motion seeking the dissolution of the company. The attorney general charges that the company was not organized to do a legitimate business, but simply for the purpose of controlling the sash, door and blind trade, and creating by its operations a lumber trust extending over Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, Ohio and Kansas. The attorney general requests that a receiver be appointed to wind up the affairs of the corporation, and that its franchises be revoked. KEEP AN EYE ON CROOKS. Chicago Detectives Leave For Temporary Duty at St. Louis. CHICAGO, June 15.—In accordance with the request of Chief of Police Har- nigan of St. Louis, six detectives have left Chicago for service in that city during the convention. They go at the expense of St. Louis and will join officers from all the other cities in the country at that city to endeavor to keep in control the criminal element that flocks to conventions. Two will be assigned for general work in St. Louis, while the other four officers are to be kept riding on the trains entering the city, so as to arrest any known thief Who may be on his way to St. Louis. DEMOCRATIC BOLtERS. CHICKEN irtlat'l SENATOR TELLER. They intend as a preliminary to mar- shal'all the strength they can in the committee on resolutions for silver. They know they will fail, but instead of their attempting to secure a compromise, it will be their plan to so throw their strength in the committee as to force, if possible, the adoption of a Straight Out Gold Flank, believing that an emphatic gold declaration will put them in a more advantageous position for what is to follow. As one of them said : "If the Republican convention cannot be right we will force it to be honest. Better a gold declaration for all concerned than an equivocal plank that wears gold." The fight will then be carried to the floor of the convention under the leadership of Senator Teller. The Colorado senator, as the head and spirit of the silver strength in the Repxiblican party, will make a speech, which, his friends gay, will be the effort of his life. It will be his valedictory to the Republican party. It will be followed after the convention has voted down the minority report which he will offer, by the formal announcement of The Severance of the Ties which bind him and his associates to the party. This will cither be done in the form of a statement to the convention or an address "to the people, but probably the former. The climax will certainly be dramatic. It is probable that Senator Teller will go immediately to Colorado and the Republican silver men who go out with him will remain here and issue an address to the .silver voters of the country of all parties calling upon them to support Senator Teller as the pre-eminent representative of the issue for president, The silver men expect to curry at least five states out of the convention with them, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, Montana and Utah, and they arc very hopeful, that the Democratic convention at Chicago will nominate the man who leads the bolt here. MINNESOTA DEMOCRATS. Leading Gold Standard Jleu of Iowa Form a Sound Money Association. BURLINGTON, la,, June 11.—A split in the Democracy of Iowa has been started here by leading gold standard men with the hope of spreading it to other states. A pledge is being circulated with great success, worded as follows: "The undersigned Democrats hereby form an association to be known as the Democratic Sound Money club. We pledge ourselves not to vote for any candidate for president or congress who is not known to be opposed to the free and unlimited coinage of silver." The names of the signers caused a great sensation, including many of the most prominent and influential citizens and old time Democratic leaders. Sustains the BrltiHh Side. LONDON, June 11.—The Westminster Gazette says that valuable documents, strongly corroborative of the British case in the Venezuelan boundary dispute were discovered in the Vatican during a search for data made in the history of the Jesuits. Republicans Have Both Congressmen. PORTLAND, Or., June 10.—In. the First congressional district Tongue (Rep.) has a plurality of 74. Complete returns have been received from all counties in the district and from all but three official returns are in. In the Second district, with official returns from five counties missing, Ellis (Rep.) has 452 plurality. CORE'S GREEN A Story of the GrCAt i'tniir.h Ho* of t'illnt. The following little story was told by the famous painter. (Jtiatave Uore. whose illustrious Dante. Milton. Uabe- lais and Don Quixote will probably never be surpassed. At an parly ago Do re showed wonderful 'silent for drawing, and in all his life he never copied from models, but painted from memory and the fullness of his mind. This describes his experience vvltli his first box of metal tubes: "On-2 dav," he says, "when 1 was to spend a week with a friend of m.v father's, there was brought to me the well-known oaken box, with brass handle and tube and brushes complete. 1 was wild with delight. I had never thought half as much of any present. I wanted to uncork all the paints there and then and cover my palette with pretty daubs of color, but they would not let me. The carriage was waiting. I had to jump in. Of course. I took m.v box with me under mv arm, or rather next to my heart, firmly resolved to set to work as soon as we had reached the journey's end. "The was was longer than 1 had expected; we did not arrive, f .vas strictly forbidden to touch the paints and was ordered off to bed. Fires and lights were put out, but F could not sleep a wink. As soon as the first gray streak of daylight appeared I jumped out of bed and went downstairs and out into the yard. But alas! There was no can vas, no cardboard, no panel. All had been taken from me the night before. I felt a mad, irresistible desire to paint. Wondering on what 1 should make my first attempt. I set about uncorking my bottles and spreading patches of color all over my palette. The brilliancy, freshness and cheerfulness of those colors made me quite drunk with delight. Nothing goes to the head so much as your first palette. There way a green shade especially that I could not take my eyes off. What a lovely green! Veronese green in all its glory. "But what was 1 to paint, and on what? As 1 was still asking myself this question, my eyes fell on a poor little hen, rather prettily shaped, but with feathers of a dirty white, that was picking 1 up crumbs two paces from where 1 stood. The fowl was frightfully deficient in tone. 1 decided to remedy the fault without further delay. The hen objected; the creature ;s| Cancelled a £0,000 Contriict. ST. Louis, Juno 11.—The St. James hotel luis refused, to entertain negro delegates and cancelled a $0,000 contract it had made for feeding and housing delegates. Captured Grain Supplies. FIKKET, Juno 1!?.—Major Burn-Murdoch has occupied a largo village just opposite Suerda and captured largo quantities of grain supplies. Congress Aclju limed. WASHINGTON-, Juno 11.—Both houses adjourned at 4 p. m. with the usual ceremonies. 'BUT WHAT WAS I TO PAINT, AND WHAT?" '\ Democrats of Minnesota, Are Opposed to Unlimited Free Coinage. ST. PAUL, June 12.—Free silver was downed at the Democratic state convention by a vote of 420 to 323 and a delegation sent to Chicago instructed for sound money. D. W. Lawler, candidate for governor four years ago, heads the list of delegates. The financial plank of the platform is as follows: We are unqualifiedly In favor of the present gold standard of value. We favor the use of both gold and silver ns money, and believe that our government should coin and keep in circulation as a part of the circulatory medium as large an amount of silver as can be employed without destroying or threatening to destroy the existing parity of value between the unit in gold and the unit in silver. Wo are opposed to a descent to monometallism of any kind and particularly to a silver monometallism with its depreciated and depreciating standard of silver. We therefore oppose the free coinage of silver by our own government at the ratio of 16 to 1, without co-oporatiou on the part of the'other commercial nations of the world. It would reduce this country to a xcondition of silver monometallism, entailing upon us financial panic and com- rndrcial and industrial disaster. We •"•" utterly and irrevocably opposed to adoption of any such policy. CONNECTICUT DEMOCRATS. State Convention at Hartford Nominates Delegates to Chicago. HARTFOKD, Conn., June 11.—The Democratic state convention met and selected the following delegates at large to the national convention at Chicago: Viles B. Preston, Hartford; Lynde Harrison, Guilford; Thomas M. Waller, New London.; James M. Alldis, Tor- riugton. On the subject of currency, the platform says: As u. necessary consequence, the honest payment of public debts and the preservation of the public credit require that the gold standard of money as a measure LATEST MAKKET REPORT.

To be sure, it took every particle of Veronese green; but then, what a beautiful hen I had turned out! "Two or three hours afterward I war* roused out of sleep by an unusual nois? of shouting- and groaning. What could it be? A number of men and womei had gathered in a crowd in front of the house. Some of them hncl their arms uplifted toward the sky; others were weeping;; others by their frantic gestures manifested the wildest despair and terror; and in the midst of them stood the fowl, to which they were pointing with their fingers, and when it went toward them they drew back in affright. Then I understood it all. I remembered a leg-end of the country n which a green fowl plays a terrible •<art. Whenever it appears all kinds of woes threaten the village—failure of crops, plague among the cattle, disease in the home. That accounted for the village being in arms. Under rtly very eyes a woman fell to the ground in hysterics. Then I hesitated no longer. I'ran to the master of the house, and told him everything. It took longer than an hour and a half to convince the superstitious folk atTosserand that the \crdant creature had not been sent by their evil genius, and that it was my first effort in painting "At last their fears gradually subsided, and I ventured to show myself. An old woman, still laboring under the excitement she had just gone through, said to me, in prophetic tones: 'You have made our people shed bitter tears; you, too, will weep before you have done with your painting!'

A writer In the Detroit Free Press tells ft pathetically humorous story of friend of his,-Jack Negly, a Cumberland farmer. The writer had lent Jack few dollars, with which to buy a pair of steers, and had received from hi In many visits of apology; for Jack was an honest man. and did not enjoy being in debt. He was a, renter, and at least every other season he was occupying a different farm. By my advice, he ^ had moved the year before into an entirely new field, a miles from his usual haunts, and 1 had not seen him for several months. When I did see him, at last, it was by accident' as business called me into ills neighborhood. An I rode past his place he hailed me from the corn-field and came cut to the fence. "Hello." I exclaimed. "Is this your farm?" "Yes, and 1 jist come over to tell you, colonel, that Vll be ready to pay part of that claim uv your'n afore long." "You must be doing well ?" "L-think I'm doiug fust-rate, and I'm powerful obleegecl to you. colonel, fer headin' me this way." "I'm always glad to help, if I can." "I knowed that, colonel, and that's why I come away over here so fer f mm home. Hit's kinder strange to me, but ez long cz I'm doin' ez well e?, I nm I'm a-goin' to stand hit." "Are you making any money?" Jim's'face brightened perceptibly. "No, I ain't, colonel," he replied, hopefully; "but I'm losin'it slowcr'n I ever clone in my life afore." It struck me as rather odd at first, but upon reflection I concluded that Jim might have reason for his hopefulness. ANOTHER ICE PERIOD. A Predicted Kesult of Cutting the Isthmus of I'amima. The best scientific authorities pre- lict dire effects from the cutting of a ;anal through either the Isthmus of Panama or Tehuautcpec. The late George R. Marsh said of this that 'a new ice period might be occasioned by he withdarwal of so important a source of warmth from the northern zones,' nd Sir John Herschel wrote: 'Were the Isthmus of Panama broken through ;here is no doubt that the whole climate of our island (Great Britain) would undergo a most notable deterioation.' The sum of $0,000,000 has been voted by the legislature of the state of New York for improving the Erie canal system; the Hennepin canal has had $1,200,000 spent on it, and work has stopped until new appropriations can be made. Matt Quay is using his influence for the construction of a ship canal from Pittsburgh to Lake Erie, to cost $16,000,000, and a ship canal from Philadelphia to New York, besides advocating the expenditure of $50,00t».000 in canalizing the Ohio and Mississippi rivers. One of the most stupendous of these engineering- works is the Chicago drainage canal, now in progress, which is to cut the •divide' which bars the way between Chicago and the Mississippi river. The distance is only 30 miles between Lake Mjchigan and the Illinois river, and one can easily sec the startling nature of a union of the 'great lakes' and the •father of waters.'

In an Edinburg- school an inspec<or, wishing to test the knowledg-e of a clas-s in fractions, asked one boy whether he would rather take a sixth or a seventh part of an orange, if he had his choice. The boy promptly replied that he would take the seventh: At this the inspector explained at length to the class that the boy who would choose the smaller part, as this boy had done, because it looked the lajrgest fraction, was very foolish. Then there was a laugh. But presently the .iaugh was on the other side, when another boy got up and said, boldly: "He's my brother, and he don't like oranges!" Her Heag the Biggest. Dr. M. W. Stryker, president of Hamilton college, told this story the other day in an address before the New York Hardware club: "The braggart spirit anywhere is absurd. Some little school girls (it is chronicled of Chicago) weie discussing their clothes. 'I've a lovely new dress," said one, 'and I'm going to wear it to church next Sunday.' 'Pooh ! ' gaid another. 'I've a new hat, and I'm going to wear it every day.' 'Well,' said a third, 'I've got heart disease, anyway!" " lislit of tv Soldier nese Thibet. An amusing- story is told of the English officer who determined to enter Chinese Thibet by stvatagen. He managed to cross the frontier at night, and so escaped the guard. On the following- day, however, while the ollicer was journeying deeper into Thibet, the Thibetan soldiers overtook him, and informed him that as the country was unsafe because of robbers, they would go with him in order to protect him, to which arrangement the traveler was compelled to agree. In a few hours they came to a river, which was crossed by a rope bridge. The Thibetans passed over first, in order to show that the bridge was safe, nnd then the official got into the noose and' was pulled along by the Thibetans, Suddenly, however, they ceased pulling, and left the Englishman hanging in midair abo\e the rushing torrent. In vain the officer shouted to the Thibetans to pull. They merely smoked and nodded their heads. The hours passed, and still the officer hung above the torrent. At last the Thibetans agreed to pull him back if he would leave Tibet immediately. This, of course, he was compelled to do, and took his departure from the forbidden land, _ __ Old-Time Acoomplisliineots. The following extract from the Bicl- deford Times gives us an idea of the accomplishments of our grandmothers in household arts, of importance m every girl's education: Mrs. Ann Emery, of Sa«o, died at the advanced age of 93 years. When she was married, in 1S25, her accomplishments were stated as follows: She could cook all kinds of food in an expert manner; sew and knit, spin and weave clpth, make her own clothes from cloth made with her own hands, make butter and cheese, make soap and tinder,— this was long before the days ot friction matches,— dip candle, sing and dance."
