Shot": "Popular parlance has given too
wide a scope to the bicycle dreeeea for
women the night-blooming bloomers,
the dust covered bloomers that sag on
the limbs. There are very few bloom
ers among them . Bloomers are noth
ing but pantalettes, worn under a skirt
that has only slight speaking acquaint
ance with the shoo tops. The prevail
ing phemale paraphanalia is the Turk
ish costume of trousers with pillow
slip legs to them. Even these slack
leather garments are much preferable to
the beastly bloomers and in a brief
space of periods the jijllow-slips will
contract to..graceful-.proportfe. "5You
cannot get away from the fact that since
the Garden of Eden closed its gates and
made an assignment, men's garb has
been much more rational than that of
women, and the dear creatures do not
merit opprobrium for craving at least a
passing and temporary emancipation
from their thraldom." "
The nomination of -Maxwell by the
populists in the face of his repeated
declarations that he did not wish to be
a candidate, is but. another evidence of
the desperate straits they are in for ju
dicial timber. Had therebtwn' a mem
ber of that party in existence whose
qualifications for the positron of supreme
judgo were such that a shadow of a hope
might be entertained for his election, it
is fair to presume that ho would have
been chosen in preference to the venera
ble republican . Possibly, they did the
best they could under the "circumstances
but it must be admitted that this thing
of pulling a dbtaged old maa out of the
retirement of private life and jforce him J
to do battle against -certain - defeat is
cruel in the extreme' It was long-since
discovered that the pop-party was capa
ble of almost'any foolish of inhuman ac
tion, but this is really carrying things
further than any one expected. St.
In closing an editorial upon the sub
ject of "What shall the Farmer Do?"
the Kearney Hub says: Make irrigation
the basis of the new agriciilturo in Ne
braska. It will enable the farmer to
raise many things that he dare not risk
without irrigation. With hay crops, and
fruit, and dairying, and butter making,
and poultry, and honey, and onough of
the staples to provide merqly-for his in
terest payments and working off his
principal, he will soon get'but of debt,
and once out he will be able to stay out.
But the western farmer must realize
fully and completely, b6foro he can ever
hope to right himself oh' tho financial
side, that he cannot raise wheat to com
pete with India and Argentine or corn
and wheat to buck the gamblers on
change, without getting the worst of the
When the populists went outside of
their known party lines for a judicial
candidate who has never openly avowed
their political isms, it was done evident
ly with a feeling that they had care for
their party and its fate. There are mul
tiplying evidences that a great many of
that party are making up their minds
that populism is scarcely ""worth strug
gling for any longer. Fremont Tribune

CROMWELL'S FIRST STATUE.
An Image or Wood and "Wax Carried
Tkroagfe. bRdeBr Ib'1658.
When Edward Burroagh,the Quaker
"Apostle of' London," whom George
Fox called his "Son of Thunder," was
passing through Charing Cross on his
way to the city, npon the' M22d day of
the ninth month," 1658, he ioiaid the
streets crowded with people. "The
guards of soldiers, horse and foot, " says
he, 'stayed me and stopped my horse and
said I might not pass that yvay. Nei
ther, indeed, IwiU," adds he, "by rea
son of the throng of people. "
When he inquired the reason of "this
thronging and pressing of multitudes,"
he was told that they all came out "only
to see a dead image and invented fea
ture, without life or breath, which would
be. carried this way.." -It was net the

for multitudes of foolish people to gaze
upon and wonder after and admire. "
The zealous Quaker thought the statue
of Oliver Cromwell all tho more an in

once a great instrument in the hands of
the Lord to break down many idola
trous images and grievous idols. And
have they now, said my spirit, made a
costly image of him? And are such as
were ouce his soldiers, who pulled down
images and crosses, and all such popish
like stuff wherever they met with it,
now guarding his image and watching
over it, and his children and officers
following it, multitudes of the inhabit

Edward Burrough. concluded that it
was "a judgement" upon Cromwell to
be thus wronged after his death, because
he had suffered the servants of the Lord
(tho Quakers) to be persecuted and im
prisoned for crying against such things
as were popish. He says that Cromwell
himself would have been angry at it.
"I knew the man when he was living

THE HEART IN OLD AGE.
L Misconception That Canses Humanity
A storv told bv Dr. G. W. Balfour in
ais hook on "Tho Senile Heart" -ell
ieserves tho double purpose of marking
ihe practical process which scientific
medicine has achieved within the past
50 years and of administering a much
needed word of comfort and encourage
ment to those numerous workers who,
is age approaches, begin to feel uncom
fortable about the regions of the heart.
"Many years ago," said Dr. Balfour,
"a gentleman of 77 consulted me as to
severe fainting fits to which he was
liable. A distinguished consultant, since
dead, had told him that these attacks
were duo to fatty degeneration of tho
heart and that treatment would be of
uo avail. The heart's impulse was im
perceptible, the sounds faint, but pure,
the arteries firm, but neither hard nor
tortuous. I told the patient that experi
ence had taught me that hearts supposed
to be fatty were often weak.
Tho result of treatment was a steady
improvement in health and in force of
heart beat, and the patient lived to be
90 and did not die of heart failure in
the end, but from senile asthenia. " To
many people "fatty heart" is a perfect
bugbear. But this is what Dr. Balfour
has to say about the diagnosis of the
disease : "It is absolutely impossible to
diagnosticate fatty degeneration of the
"We may surmise its existence, but
we can only be certain of its presence
when we see it post mortem. " If many
middle aged and old men could but
have this written deep upon the tablets
of their consciousness, what loads would
be lifted from their minds. Yet doctors
of small experience roll out a diagnosis
of fatty heart with sonorous satisfac
tion, unheeding that to mqyy a trem
bling father of a family it is like the
sound of a deathknelL On the question
of treatment Dr. Balfour is equally do
cided. "We are often told," he says,
"that there is danger in treating a fatty
heart Yet the result of treat
ment in the caso recorded was a cure,
proving that a heart supposed to bo
fatty was only weak and that a life
supposed to be over only wanted the
fillip of a few minims of digitalis to
sarry it on to almost the extreme of hu
man longevity." So, true is it, even in
scientific medicine, that a little experi
ence and common sense outweighTmany
3hiploads of mere abstract theorizing.
