ENQUIIIKU—It was the Walker tariff bill that was introduced in 1847. The Wilson tariff bill was introduced a few years later—your oldest Inhabitant can give you tho date. DAVID B. "HILL is being denounced aa a traitor by the leading democratic papers of the country and his features appear over the cognomen "Judas" In many of the angered party organs. THK Journal cannot ton strongly urge attendance at the primaries Frl day evening. Let there be a full, fair, free expression of public sentiment and BuocesB at the polls will follow. __ LOGANSPORT is 350 democratic. Tbe conditions indicate a possibility of republican Buooesg. The greatest care Is necessary to bring this about. One mistake will ruin everything. This is the situation which the candidates, their friends and the city convention must consider calmly. The democratic party nationally has shown its weakness and many ol Its followers are dlsgus ed. The republican party can not profit by this except by iti usual display of wisdom. THE special gas committee has accomplished what it was appointed for and can assure to the people of Lon gansport plenty of gat at a muck lower rate than they are now paying} The money subscribed, with a few thousand dollars additional, will fur- nlsh all the funds necessary to put in the plant. The committee has decld- ed to go ahead and whether the decision ol the Supreme Court establishes ordinances rates or not a cheaper rate is desirable and the special committee can guarantee this to subscribers. The committee feels that the citizens will cheerfully advooate anything that will bring about cheaper fuel to the masses and with thil feeling they have decided to put in the new plant. They aik the earnest co-operation of ever citizen and the prompt payment of the subscriptions. ._ Tbe iteb*U KnU. No Union soldier, we suppose, or any other good citizen, will question the loyalty of Congressman Amos J, Cummlngs, (Dem.) who as he modestly puts it, was "private In the Twenty- sixth New Jersey Volunteers and was promoted to sergeant major." What he reports from Washington Is not to be disputed. And this is the extraordinary summary of his investigations into the composition of the Senate and the House and the shalrmanshlps Of the committees of both: Over one-thlrd of the members of the present Congress were soldiers In the armies. la the House there are today 64 Union soldiers and 56 confederates. In the Senate there are 10 Union soldiers and 29 confederates. In Congress, therefore, the confederates, with a total of 76, outnumber the Union soldiers, with a total of 74, But this numerical »uperl»rlly does not measure the influence of the Con- federaoy on legislation. The Union soldiers in the Senate • re chairmen of 6 minor committee*. The Confederate soldiers hold 22. In the House the Union soldier* have 4 committees; the Confederatei 22. Thus, with a positive numerical superiority of 2, the Confederate »old- 'lers in Congress rule 44 committee! against 10 held by the Union lold- iers. If this is not the Confederacy In control of Congress It needs only the fact that the president pro tern, of the Senate, Isham G. Harris, of Ten. oessee, and the Speaker of the House, Mr. Crisp, of Georgia, served in the rebel army to give the finishing touon to the picture. Tbe truth Is, beyond a question, that the Confederacy rules the Unite* States today as completely at though Grant had surrendered to Lea at Ap- poraattox.—New York Commercial Advertiser. THE JDNGFRAC'S PEAK. Socm to Bo Reached by an Bloo- trlo Bailroad. Ovor TnolTo Tliouxanil Feet Will Bo COT.,rod by ItnilH-TIm Be»t of the Trip must Ur Completed In nu El«v;»tor. Not many years :ijro it was aqucstion with sulioolmiiMi-rs and other folks whether tliU'Iunfrfrnu, the ui.ifiTiiScent pciik ol the r.ci-no:;c Alps, derived Its name, whiuh in the queen's English is virgin or maiden, from the fact that no traveler had ever reached its highest point on account ol the virgin purity of the perpetual snow on its summit, which on all sides is surrounded by precipices. To-day the European bourses are soiling the stock of a projected Junprfrau railway, for which M. Guyer-Zeller, of Zurich, the principal owner of the great Northeast railway, has Just received a "concession" by the Swiss federal council. The Jungfrau is situated on the boundary line of the cantons Bern and Valals. Its height is 18,071 feet, 200 foot less than that of Mont Blanc, the giant among the mountains of Europe. In 1800 a project to reach the summit by rail was launched but tho plans were not feasible. The present plan is to start tho road on the Soheldeck mountain (Wcngern Alp), some six thousand feet above the sea. The rack system of railroading', which is employed by the Mont Cenls, Righi and Zertnatt railways most successfully, will be used In pulling up the cars to the Jungfrau, being rcen- forced by electricity. The rack engine, LOCOMOTIVE POB JtJNGPKAU BAJtLWJlY. as the Illustration shows, has a boiler of the vertical order, and four cylinders, the outer pair of which aro connected with wheels running on ordinary rails, while the inner pair operate a central-toothed wheel, running on a single-racked rail. The two sets of cylinders can be worked separately or together. The route of the Jungfrau railway will be as follows: Frora its starting point, the line ascends to the foot of the Eiger glacier, which is to be tunneled, the trains entering on the east side and coming out in the south at Station Eiger, which is 9,500 feet above the level of the sea. The tunnel is to be open on the outer side. Frqpi Station Eiger the line moves, again by tunnel, in the direction of the "Monk 1 " mountain, until it reaches the Jung- COGWHEEL TKDCK OF LOCOMOTIVE. frau-Joch, and, leaving the tunnel there, tho railroad ascends to the so- called small plateau, winding Itself around the mountain in spiral form like the thread on a screw. The small plateau Is i2,BOO feet above the level of the fiea, and in midsummer clear of. snow. There a gigantic elevator will be constructed, powerful enough to hoist fifty people to the mountain summit on each trip. The railroad will be 60,000 feet long, and for power and lighting purposes electricity will be employed throughout. The falls of the Luotschine river and the Trnemmel stream are to furnish power for 1 the electrical engines. Work will be started in the spring. The engineers hope to finish the railroad to Station Eiger within two years. In the summer of 1898 American tourists will bo able to reach the summit of tho Jungfrau, as M. Guyer-Zeller says, in true United States fashion, by elo- vator. The cost of the undertaking Is estimated at about $2,000,000. Tho first great mountain railroad constructed in the Alps was that to Mont Cenis, 0,775 feet above tho sea, finished in 1805. Then followed the Rlghi Culm railroad, finished six years later, and finally tho Zermatt railway, which was thrown open to travel in the summer of 1891. The latter is twenty-two miles in length. The locomotives on these railways, Vchlch, are fed by coal, aro of 105 horsepower, and travel at the rate of 16,000 feet per hour. These roads are also constructed on the rack system. SCIENCE AND AMERICA. Th« OlowlniT Trlbnt* of » British M»t»> iln* to Oar Indaitrlu. Science is supreme in American pro- duetton, and the Americans have outrun us all in Its application. They were the first to utilize electricity, not merely in the development of telegraphy and the kindred arts, but as a powerful ally la manufacture. In the welding of metals, for Instance, it now plays an .important part. It has re- duoed the price of aluminum from two pounds and two shillings a pound, and the metal has now in consequence passed into common use; it enters Into the fabric of the bicycle: it Is made lato shoes for the horses of Russian cavalry; it is embodied in the fn(f matlcal figure which crowns the Shaftesbury memorial. In iron and steel the use of highly- developed machinery, which is no more than the application of science, has revolutionized production. The new drop-hammer baa brought down the price of American plows to less than one- pound, and in th« making of all sort*'of agricultural. Implements It is oaUtnlated that ste. hundred men oan ,na I ira ,u I Tim* HM Com* When It ll No Neceutry to Remain Under Twenty. Is it worth a woman's while to be inaccurate about her age? Does she^not rather lose nowadays by lessening the number of her years? Assuming that her object hitherto in setting back the hand of Time has been to render herself more attractive in the eyes of the opposite sex, it must be obvious to close observers of the men and manners of to-day that it is not the maiden of "bashful fifteen" nor the girl of sweet twenty who finds favor in the sight either of the gilded youth or the man of the' w.orld, Tho threshold of womanhood no longer invites them, sweet seventeen is out of date, immaturity is not attractive. It is nowadays only the woman who has "arrived" who can fascinate the weary, pessimistic youth of the period; it is only the experienced matron who, understanding the faults and follies of man, can render herself a sufficiently reasonable companion to him when he comes to years of discretion. The "bread-and-butter" miss, the comparatively inexperienced maiden, nay, oven the very young matron, are hopelessly "out of it" at the present. It is the hour of maturity, and the woman has triumphed ovewffche girl. She way now be anything over thirty to hold sway, provided always that she keeps herself thirty in heart and face. She .must look attractive, she must have the power to attract. She must possess tact and • judgment, and then she can. snao her fineers at Time and •now produce as much as two tnousano. one hundred and fo ty-flve a few years ago. Where a single workman could make throe dozen pairs of sleevo links in a day, a boy can now make nine I thousand. The manufacture of pins still holds its own as an "object lesson;" but whereas Adam Smith notes with astonishment and admiration ten men turning out forty-eight thousand oin» a day, the modern American manufacturer finds no dilliculty in supplying seven and a halt millions in the same time, as the result of the labor of five pairs of hands. Compare tills with tho state of thing's at the time of tho war of independence, when imported pins sold for seven shilling's and sixpence a dozen, and when, to encourage home industry, tho government ofl'ered fifty pounds for the best twenty-live dozen of pins made in America equal to those imported from England. — Edinburgh Review. _ _ WOMEN AND MONEY. How IlonkK Cftter to Fair D«p<iiiltor»— Con- vanlcnoiu Provided for Their Comfort. There are half a dozen up-town banks which do three-quarters of their business with women. Situated in the residence and shopping districts they are used for the housekeeping and private purses of those women who have incomes of their own or are paid quarterly allowances by husband or fathers. The old jokes anent woman's iinabil- Ity to transact money matters are scoffed at by the officials of those banks. They say that women are much i morn satisfactory depositors than men, J seldom, if ever, overdrawing their nc- I counts, and presenting their books at | regular intervals to be written up. The constant presence of ladies has, however; necessitated a change in the arrangement of the bank building itself. One in particular, in the heart of the shopping district, has had its "ladies' department" enlarged to accommodate cosey easy chairsand desks for the comfort of its depositors, and just by the side entrance is as dainty a little dressing room as was ever presided over by a busy white aproned attendant. Every possible toilet accessory Is to be had here, from noodles and silk of all colors to replace a missing button to powder puffs 'and manicure articles. A little tray of hairpins is at hand, while whisk brooms, violet water and lavender salts occupy conspicuous placets. And then the tempting arrangements for giving- the hands or face one little wash; an oval basin sunk in a spotless marble slab and fed by shining faucets and such a pile of snowy towels. These and the cake of scented soap mutely invite to remove the soil of shopping. In fact these coseyolittle conveniences do much to swell the clientelle of a bank. The attendant at this particular bank says that the larger a woman's account the more eccentric she is in her methods of disposing of it. A year ago few women depositors '.handled their money at all, making payments by check and only calling at the bank to make deposits or visit the safe deposit vaults. Since tho troubles last summer, they call regularly once a week or of toner, draw what they need in gold and carry it away io little chamois bags fastened inside their frocks. Some of the women after counting their money at the paying teller's desk run Into the dressing-room, spread it all on a table and go over it two or three times. One rich woman rolls her money into a tight wad and thrusts it into her stocking; another ties hers in a neat brown paper parcel and bears it ofl in triumph,— N. T. Herald. _ _ CONCEALING A WOMAN'S AGE. Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U. S. Gov't Report y Baking _., Powder ABSOLUTELY PUKE boldly set d'own what she likes on the census paper. At all events, she need no longer dread the attainraentof her third decade, for it is then that her reign boffins. Not until then docs she begin ^/understand the management of man. He does not want to be regarded as a. schoolgirl's ideal, to live on bliss and kisses and eternally play the jeune premier. He wants companionship, he wants to have his faults rocogni/.ed and openly discussed, and he knows that with her ripened experience the woman will not expect too much of him or invest him with a halo of romance, neither has she mere matrimonial designs upon him. So has she outrivaled her younger sistors, even her own daughters, and thus need she no longer fear the taking- of the census and the revelation of her age.—Ladies' Pictorial. "MOTHERING SUNDAY." A Uellg-ntful Little Ctwtom of tb« Vt*n That Ar« Hone. "Mothering Sunday" is the fourth Sunday in Lent, and is often called "Mid-Lent Sunday." The custom which gave rise to the name, like many another ieMghtful old custom, has passed away, and so the name has become almost forgotten also. I suppose you have all read stories of apprentice^ young l»d« who were "bound oat," as they called it, to learn a trade, or to work for some farmer for a term of years. How would you like it, my boy-just home from a spin on your new "safety"—to be tiod down to work day after day, under a master who was not always easy to please, and who would allow yon only Sunday* an occasional "day ofl" to go to see your mother. And you, my dear girl, with your happy home and days brimful of enjoyment, what would you think of a life exactly opposite to yours? For, in the days of long ago, as well as in our own time, there wero many young girl* who found it best to leave their homes and make their own way in the world. Would you not be glad of an occasional Sunday when you could array yourself In all your best finery, and go to see your mother, taking care that yon wrapped your, littlo present up very carefully, so that you could watch bar evident pleasure and surprise as she nntied tho string, took off the wrapper and brought to light the treasure which you had bought for her with your "very own earnings?" That was "Mothering Sunday," the fourth Sunday in Lent, when absent sons and daughters—particularly the young apprentices—would return to their homes wrth some little present for both parents, but more especially for the mother. An ancient custom, and a delightful one, it seems to me. Imagine the Joy of Peggy or Thomas, theprWeof the mother in the simple gift, and the admiration of the sme.ll brothers and sisters, who gathered around and longed for the time when they also would be out in the great unknown world and could come "a-mothering." Perhaps it was not an apprentice or a serving-maid, but some young housekeeper who would come from her own home, end with a most Important air would present her mother with some pasties or a "slmnel" of her own making. The slmnel, or sinnel, was a kind of rich sweet cake offered as a gift at Christmas or Easter and especially on "Mothering Sunday." We may be sure that it was a happy time, and that the mother admired the gift and praised the giver, and rejoiced that her Thomas was such a fine, steady lad, or that Peggy was so strong and rosy and loving. .

TJie Secret at a SturteBf i Succi'i* It to Avoid Fret- Athletes have discovered that physical endurance, all things being equal, depends very largely upon knowing how to act The same is true In tho case of the student. What is most intelligently done gives the minimum of fatigue. Know how to study. That is, know how to avoid the fret and excitement of haste. The cool, systematic, self-possessed mind gathers faster and holds more than the one that is overeager and always in a tumult of conflicting desires; moreover it escapes the enormous heat of unnatural friction. The poet may forge hi* songs while his brain is incandescent and with his eyes in "fine frensy rolling;' but the student must be normal; his pulse must keep its even beat; his breathing must be deep and regular.

Used in Millions of Homes— 40 Yean the Standard. just the opposite of creative work. In one case the brain is emptying its riches upon the world; in the other it is drawing in supplies, and what will aid one operation must necessarily retard the other. Hut it has been found. that to pass from creative work to study and back again is a sort of rest and refreshment quite wholesome if not overdone. Come through what channel it may, however, rest, perfect rest, in a word sleep, is the one great restorer, which nothing else can equal, a source' of reinvigoration surer and more potential than any fountain of youth. To avoid overstudy, then, regular physical exercise in the open air and regular, deep, refreshing sleep must be had. Indeed, sleep, sleep, sleep, should be the wise student's motto. Every night-hour pilfered from sleep is a hindrance to strong, vivid, healthful thinking, and a snare for the wings of the imagination.—Chautauquan. What He Could L)o. The mission worker had a lot of boy* from the street before him, trying to- soe what their capacities were for other work than wandering. He had called up several and questioned them, and came next to a red-headtd urchin of about twelve. As the boy rose to- be put through the course, one of the other boys prodded him with a pin. He jumped, of course, but being on his good behavior he managed to suppress his feelings, though it could be plainly seen that he was almost at the limit. "You want to work, too, do you?'" asked the missionary kindly. The boy merely nodded. "What can you do?" inquired the missionary. The boy could bold in no longer. "1 kin lick de stuffin' out of d« kid wot sticked me wid a pin, and I'm go- in' to do it," he bnrtt forth, and a few minutes later the job had been don* thoroughly.—Detroit Free Press —St. Peter's church in Rom* will contain 64,000 person*.
