HATJK, JEWELEK AND OPTIUAN. TIME TABLE THE INDIANA ELECTIONS. The Indiana elections Tuesday showed that tho democratic mind Is in a receptive state. The greatest truths fall after a time to take root and there must needs come some forcible Influence to break up the hardened soil. The business depression ha& brought about the necessary condl. tions and wherever local issues suggested the wisdom of republican supremacy a large number of democrats hastened to republican support. And so In viewing 1 the situation as a whole It Is not proper to detract from local candidates or campaigns and to •ay that the result was similar eke- where and that therefore any Issue or any candidate would have met with success. There were democratic gains In some localities Tuesday and In almost every case where there were republican gains local Issues were successfully raised. There Is of course a large number of former democrats who have been Impressed by the national situation and who will never vote with their former party again but the number Is not largo enough to have produced Tuesday's results. Tho result was largely due to the suecepta- bllity of the democratic mind and the local issues raised. The result U gratifying from a patriotic standpoint. It shows that the great masses of the people are loyal men and good citizens. It shows that when danger or depression arouses the people can be relied on for a firm and independent stand for the public good. It shows that when emergencies like tho present arise, partisans whose boast was that they never scratched boast of tho achievements In scratching. But the condition of the country affords opportunity for careful investigation and It Is to bo hoped that those who have cast their lot with republicans this time will see the wisdom of doing BO permanently. The republicans need their support and encouragement and the country needs republicanism. If It is right now to support republican policies why Is it not right to continue to do so? Let us hope that many see that it is. HE KICKED HIMSELF HARD,.

THE GREAT_REACTION. What Ono Your of Democratic Rule H»» Uroufclit About. Tho democrats are trying-to console themselves in their present season of adversity with tho familiar theory that an administration is generally weak in its second year, owing to this ordinary circumstances attending the work of adapting itself to the work that it 1ms to perform. Such an explanation will not answer in this ease, however. The prevailing reaction against the party in power is not simply the result of causes that are repeated at regular intervals and that have only a superficial and temporary significance. It implies n, general feeling of dissatisfaction with democratic rule. A year's experience has satisfied the country that a monstrous mistake was made when the republican party was defeated and a new system ol political doctrines and policies introduced. It will not do to say that the wave of displeasure which is now rolling over tho country represents an impulsive and transient sentiment, and one that is likely to spend its force in a short time and leave things as they were when the votes were counted in 1892. The proof to the contrary is plain and conclusive. There has never before been such a pronounced reversal of opinion with regard to the principles and purposes of a party. It extends all over the country, and tho form of Its manifestation is such that its meaning cannot possibly be mistaken. When the democratic party took control of public affairs the people were inclined to believe that It would im- ' i prove its chances of usefulness and i Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U.

None at all have come since 187'.J, for although the republ icans won the presidency in 1870,1880 and 1888, and pained the house of representatives in tho two last named years, the margin was small in each case. In ISO*, however, there is likely to be an old-fashioned republican majority rolled up for congress, and 1890, for president and congress, stands 0 chance of being a repetition of 1873. —St Louis Globe- Democrat.

It has done nothing whatever to promote tho welfare of any section or any class. Every move that it has made has been disadvantageous to the people. It found tbe times Rood, and it mode them bad. Tlicro is no hint of proflt in any of its schemes of legisla tion. It has been tried, and the result is entirely unsatisfactory, with no prospect of anything better. If it had met public expectation even in point of honest, but unsuccessful, effort to redeem its pledges, there would be some reason for viewing it with indulgence and waiting for it to improve its conduct; but, us a matter of fact, it has failed .beyond that point of extenuation. There is not a word to bo said in its favor. The story of its attempt to govern the country is one o£ utter and unprecedented incompeteucy and unfaithfulness; and the reaction against it is not for n day, but for all time.— St Louis Globe-Democrat. whether it is likely to be composed of elements found on the earth. There was a time, no, doubt, when it might have been urged .that in all probability tho solar elements were so far different from any bodies known to terrestrial chemists that tho solar clouds must be constituted of something altogether beyond our cognizance. But this view cannot bo sustained in the present state of science. Nothing is more remarkable in the recent advance of knowledge than the clear demonstration of tho fundamental unity between the elements present in the celestial bodies and those elements of which the earth is composed. It is no doubt true that we have found grounds for believing that there may be one or two elements in tho sun which we do not find here. We have, indeed, assigned to theso dimly-discerned elements the hypothetical names, of coronium and helium. Hut even if such bodies exist at all, they are certainly wanting in the essential qualities that must be attributed to any element which purports to be the active component of the photo- spheric clouds. There cannot be a reasonable doubt that tho sun is mainly composed of elements both well known ami abundant on tho oarth. It is clearly among these known bodies that it is our duty to search for the characteristic photospheric material. As the terrestrial clouds consist of water, they arc derived not from a simple clement, but from a'composite body formed of the c;ases, oxygen and hydrogen. The multitude of the composite body is, of course, innumerable, and tlie task of searching for the solar constituent would therefore seem to be an endless one, unless we are in some wa3' enabled to restrict the field of inquiry. This is just what the vast temperature of the sun permits us to da It is well known that at a heat resembling that at which the photosphere is maintained, chemical compounds cannot in general exist. Ordinary chemical compounds exposed to temperatures of such elevation are instantly resolved into their elementary components. It is thus manifest that in the endeavor to find the photo- spheric material we have not to scan the illimitable field of chemical compounds; wo have only to consider the several elementary bodies themselves. Thus, at once the research is narrowed to a choice among-some sixty-four different materials, this being about the number of the different elementary bodies, Most of them have already been actually detected in the sun, and it is very likely that the others do really exist there also in some part or other of tlic sun's mighty volume.—Sir Robert Ball, in Fortnightly Ueview, COLOSSAL FORTUNES.

Resides these seventy colossal fortunes, there are fifty other persons in the northern states alone valued at over £2,000,000 each, thirty of them being valued in all at £00,000,000. There- were some little time ago published lists of sixty-three millionaires ia Pennsylvania possessing in the aggregate £00,000,000, and of sixty person* in three villages near New York whose wealth aggregated £100,000,000. In. lioston, fifty families pay taxes on annual incomes of about £200,000 each. We have nothing to compare with such individual cases of wealth in Great Hritain. liaron Rothschild and; Lord Overstone each left about £3,500,000; the latxj Lord Dudley left £4,000," 000; the late duke of Buccleuch, estimated to be the richest Scotchman, left estates valued at £0,000,000. One living- English duke is valued at £10,000,000, and another at £8,000,000; but not- many names could be added to these, to place against the above list of American fortunes. In 1884 there were 104- persons in the United Kingdom whose- incomes from business profits were returned as over £50,000 a year. In 188* there were only seventeen estates, which paid probate duty on about £250,000 each.—Chambers' Journal BEES IN INDIA. Serlout OhRtacleB to nnntlnff In the Term!. Fnrrnl, Among the living things of the Terai forest were some that we could very well have dispensed with—the bees, to- wit Ordinarily they were harmless, enough, or, at the worst, only became aggressive when their hives were disturbed, 'but then, as many hives were attached to low branches of the denser cover or to the trailing cane, it was no extraordinary occurrence for the elephants, in beating a jungle, to very much disturb several families of these insects, and then it was often enough a case of sauve qui peut For 11 time during one, if not two, of my Terai expeditions, the bees did not wait for any provocation whatever; they swarmed down from their hives in the upper branches of trees, and attacked us simply because we were in sight; and some trees carried hives(black and crawling on the surface, and each three or four feet in depth) enough to set up an extensive apiary, say from twenty to thirty. One day they fairly beat us out of the field. Jacky Hills, Combe Uensoij, and I were carried off in different directions, and by a singular consensus of opinion we came together again, not at the cover-side, but in our camp.
