It is with much amusement the public is watching the attempt of tho Pharos to make n campaign on tho theory that Councilman Boyer is a hypnotist and that the democratic majority aud tho democratic mayor have yielded to the seductive glances of his oaglo oyo. It is so amusing that no ono for a. moment haa treated it seriously except when deceit has been attempted. On Friday, May 6th, 1892, after the present council was elected.tho Pharos eaid, The democrats have flue members of the LOHwil and with the Mayor's vote am control tlie lodij. There have been no changes in the membership of the body since that time unJ as far as tho action of the council has boen con- corno dtho Pharos statement has proved lurrcct. Tho mayor succeeded in naminp-hls democratic committees over tho objection of tho republicans: Tho dcinocruuc city attorney, ergln- oer, street, commissioner, chief ut the hro dopartincni, chief ol tbo police, etc., we're elected. Possible thie was before Boyor'j powers as a hypnotist had boen fully developed, Of course tho Pharos attack is an attack on it< own party administration of which Mayor Read is tho head. In tba ono item of Erie avenue, most complained of, Councilman Beam noted •nay" and had tho others done likewise the measure would have been defeated. Boyer's name is uied t.imply as 11 blind to attack others. What he did the democratic majority in the council did and upon them rests all tho responsibility. The Pharos knows this and intentionblly attacks its parly. Its talk of hypnotism is of course, not serious. It is not oour- ageous enough to make a direct aU tack and attempts this subterfuge. AH this Is capital lor tho Journal and it urges the Pharos \o keep up the fiRht. The next council will be republican and It will be tho moit economical in tho history of the city. _ for full infonutttoD M to _«•».«».,• **»•» C.

Let the people beware the hired tools and organs ot these monopolies. The Journal IB the only organ of the people and if they rely on its advice they will prevail. Do not be deceived. Beware of false propheU, THE paternity of the nine month's report t» still in doubt. Dr. Powell denies assisting at the acoechument and the clerk alone seems to know anything about it. It was an unjust statement and aa such was eagerly seized by the Pharos. Now that the council has laid the complete facts before the people and tho Pharos has been compelled to publish them there is no room for further discussion. Let It go on with Us light on its democratic council. THE Journal is frequently called upon to use strong language In de- nounolng the Pharos. It seems im. possible for that paper to confine It' self to the truth. TUB Tearing DOWD Pro«e»». A vandalism Infinitely worse than Rome experienced from all tha Alar- ics which sacked the Eternal City has swept over the country since that census was taken. The years 1890 and 1894 belong to periods separated by a catastrophe suggestive of the one which visited Chicago between 1870 and 1874. It is as if the Goths and vandals of barbarism, or the fire of conflagration, had entered every manufacturing establishment of the United States during the period covered by the publication, In installments, of tho latest census of manufactures. Tha aggregate population of the country has remained about the same, except as Increased by natural cause*, including Immigration. Our people, although forced into idleness to the extent, probably of about two millions, are still here. They have nowhere else to go and deaths f r«m actual starvation have heon very few. The idle wage earner* have DO Inducement to emigrate. All they can do li to suf. for the calamity, which they brought upon themselves and bide their time In In the comforting assurance that the evil which they did they can undo.

In my opinion, the millionaire's hfa is full of the f;-:valos;, obligations, tho .-ivatost iv^ionsihililios, the greatest possibility, writes Andrew CariieEio in ni-ra.,,-.-: I'M a:«ar«sino. m "' llllL ,f sp ,.i;t" lii ivspnut to puttinjr to tlie vt-ry best, and most lic-lpful use tl10 enormona fortune which he controls. It is, 1 believe, already well known thnt I hold there is but one ri^ht mode of us,inff ffreat wealth; Uiiraely, that tho possessor, from timu to tirao Awing his own life, should so administer his fortune as to promote perraanont pood to tho community from which it W4js lathered. The methods of performing 1 this duty tiro: first, the founding or extension of a university by men eiior- mouslv rich; second, gifts to the community, sm.0i as free libraries, art galleries, museums, gymnasiums.and the ]iku; third, the founding 1 ° r extension of hospitals, medioitl colleges, laboratories and other institutions conducive to the allovialion of human suffering's. In other rospucts I do not see how tin- daily lifu of tho millionaire differs much from the life of men without millions. In this country ho is the natural product of industrial push and nat ioniil prosperity. Ho works just as hare! us his poorer neighbor. As I remarked thc'otlicrnight. tliomillionairu is tho cheapest man in tho community. Ilo \vor!ts like a .slave, and all ho asks 01' the community in return is his board and clothes. He may be happy in possession of millions, but still Iiis enjoyments, and even his powers, arc limited, lie cannot have more than ho consumes. Ho can eat only one din- ncr, wear only one suit of clothes at a timo. travel only in the same parts of thc world as the poorest sailor, sec thc same plays as those obliged to sit in tlie gallery, read the same books as the humblest clerk. lie who hoards his wealth is a slave. Money owns him. The almighty dollar is a curse to young men. Garficld ANDREW CAHSEGIE. said that the richest young man is the one who is born poor; and Garfleld Tvas right. Some hoarders, when they die, are peculiarly repentant, for one reason or another. These leave their wealth to public institutions. But there is no grace in such a gift; for such a one releases his grasp upon his money only when ho has to. A millionaire is a sort of trustee of a vast estate which he should use to elevate and improve tho community from which that wealth arose. This is a trust which ho is bound to keep. We should aim to put tho ladder in the reach, of the ambitious. Tho millionaire who gives money unwisely does a positive harm, not only to those whom •the money was designed to help, but to the whole community. He would better drop his mouty lnto th c water in raid-ocean. We should help the worthy, not thc worthless. < Alms should not b.o given to a chance beggar simply to relieve one's feelings or conscience. Before we give a dime or dollar we should ask ourselves: Is the recipient worthy? Cooper's six hundred thousand dollars, and Rockefeller's millions arc ten times more beneficial to a commnnity given as they were, than if they had been dribbled out bit by bit. Thw Wtronffth of » Hor-*e. When you henrof "horse power," you must understand that it means thc strength of one horse. "Two-horse power" is equal to thc strength of fifteen men, or two borscs, and fifteen men arc about as strong as sixty boys under fourteen years of age. One- horse power is equal to the strength of seven and a half men. And tho strength of one elephant is more than tho strength of four horses. In St. Louis there is a race track which is kept in order by an elephant. The elephant draws tho roller, works the scraper and does all the track work. If horses were used for this, it would require two teams, so the strength of an elephant is called "four-horse power." FrnoU About Women'! Shofti. Prior to 1825 all shoes made for women's wear were without heels and after that date all heels ot that class wore of the concave pattern up to 1857. From the earliest dates In shocmaklng down to 1840 women's shoes were all "straits"—that is to say, they were made so as to be worn on cither foot without inconvenience. The first set of "rights and lefts" lasts were made in Philadelphia and bought by Daniel Silsbee, o, manufacturer, whoso works were located in what is or was known as "Woodend," Lynn, Mass. •Work of n Tenneum Patriarch.

While a boy his parents removed to the backwoods of Michigan, and after some years of residence among the swamps and forests removed again to the prairies of Nebraska. Wellman left home and school as a lad of twelve to earn lii.s own living 1 : first, as a clerk- in a country store, where the Indians were the principal customers, and later as an apprentice in a frontier printing 1 office.

Later he drifted east. AVas for ,three years editor c.rf the Repository at Canton, 0., where ho became tlie warm friend of Gov. Me- Kiuley. With his brother he started the Kven- ing Post at Cincinnati and sold out after making the paper a success to the Scripps syndicate.

Kxccpt a few months with the Chicago Tribune he has been with tho Herald ever since as city editor, editorial writer, staff correspondent and Washington representative. Mr. Wellman has had rather more than his share of the news beats in Washington during the lust five years. He is noted for tho amount of work he can turn out apparently without much effort on his part. For five years, probably, he has written more matter than any other newspaper man in Washington. Three years ago he was sent by tho Chicago Herald to find the spot at which Columbus liad first landed -upon ; American soil, and to erect a momi- ment there. The manner in which ho performed this task attracted wide attention, and the correctness of his location ol tho spot lias since been indorsed by Clements R. Markham, of tho Royal Geographical society, and other geographers. Mr. Wellman has for years been a close student of the arctic problem, and last year visited Europe to pursue his investigations and to make preliminary arrangements for this expedition. Mr; Wellman Is married and has five girls. He is president of the National Capital Press cinb. MAYOR ANNIE AUSTIN, The Efficient Chief EMentlre of • Proi- poroni Kiuuu Town. Mrs. Annie S. Austin, the chief executive of Pleasanton, Kan., is the only woman mayor In tho Sunflower state, and probably in tho United States. Pleasanton is a hustling town of fifteen hundred. She is the third woman to enjoy the distinction of being elected mayor, the other two being*- elected in much smaller towns than Pleasanton three years ago. Mrs. Austin accepted tho nomination from a convention of women, composed of le?» than a dozen delegates. She was the leader ol the moral element, being an ardent advcr- MAYOB ANNIE S.

Primer, a hardware..merchant, and she defeated Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U. S. Gov't lie-port EHJRE him by twenty votes. She is a robust woman of forty-two years, very plain and in humble circumstances, but she is above the average in intelligence. She is tho mother of three children in their toons, and her husband is a railroader. The campaign was waged with n vehement ardor, and she demonstrated a remarkable tact at electioneering. She has received congratulations from all the eminent female suffragists of the nation. Pleasant on's city council is composed of five male members, and thc evening I after Mrs. Austin's election she pre- 1 sided over them with dignity. She discharged the old police force and put on a new one. with instructions to close up every "joint" and gambling house in thc town, and this was done instantcr. Mrs. Austin formerly lived in Pcoria, 111. Twelve years ago she moved to C'artljnfre, Mo.

SomotliliiK About tho Jiulco WhoM !>•- 1 cislon IJns Nullified It. j By his recent decision in the inter! state commerce eases, which practically i nullifies thc Ctilloin law, Judge P. S. j Grosscup, of the United States district court for the Northern district of Illinois, has attracted much public attention. Judge Grosscup was ono of tho last of President Harrison's appointments, having been named to the federal bench a few months before Mr. Harrison's retirement from office. Many of thc prominent attorneys of the west were mentioned as candidates for Judge Blodgett's vacant chair, but '' JDDflE I'KTKR S. f.HOSSCUP. the great ability of tho Chicago.man •was recognized by th president, and to him was given tho honor. Mr. Grosscup had the almost unanimous support of the Chicago bar, without regard to politics. Peter Stenger Grosscup was born In Ashland, O., February 15, 1852. His..ancestors came to America before the revolution, and Paul Grosscup, the first of the name born on American soil, represented Berks county.I'a., in the colonial assembly, and after the war was a member of the pensylvania state legislature, and of tho constitutional convention. One of the family moved to Ohio in the early part of the present century. Peter S. attended the common schools of his native town until capable of higher work, when he entered Wittenberg college at Springfield, 0., whence he was graduated in due time. Then he studied law in Boston, Rraduatingr from the Boston law school in 1874. He began the practice of his profession in Ashland, in partnership with the late Judge William Osborne. He dabbled in politics, too, and was nominated for congress by thc republicans, but was defeated. In 1878 he won praise by his great speech in placing in nomination for congress before the republican convention of his district William McKinlcy, now governor of Ohio, In 1883 Mr. Grosscup came to Chicago and entered into partnership with Leonard Swett. ono of thc most distinguished lawyers of the west. Mr. Grosscup soon acquired a reputation for thoroughness and brilliancy as a lawyer. lie is a man of broad culture and owns a fine library. CRAZY FOR CRESTS. The Dctnnndii of Vuljrar Women Met by » Fixhlontble St&tlonrr. The modern woman of fashion docs not seem to care that she is using 1 ft crest without warrant, or w know that in using one atall she is usurping a man's prerogative. "You will not find one woman in a hundred who is familiar with the rules of heraldry," said a fashionable stationer recently to a New York Sun reporter. "Ladies insist on having crests cmbossod on their writing paper, even when I tell them that they are permitted by the usages of centuries to use only the arms. A few days afro a handsome woman came in and said: 'Mr. B . I wish you w/mld. out a crest and arms on my Awarded Highest Honors-World's Fair.

The spinster is rcluircd to put her family arms into a diamond frame, with very simple adornment. When a. woman marries tho arms of her family must be put on thc saroc shield with thc arms of her husband. The shield is Impaled, the wife's arms occupying 1 one position and the husband's tho other. If she becomes a widow the frame for her arms again assumes the form of a diamond, symbolizing her unmarried state, while her arms and the arms o* her deceased husband remain impaled, as formerly.
