Tiik recent blizzard throughout the
northwest grows upon us as the facts cf

become knervn. It was a terrible storm,
the like of which may not again occur in
City improvements we need; city im
provements we must have, and the IIkii
i,i is giad to be able to say that our city

the time is almost here for action and are
ronsc'iuently preparing to have our sew
erage and paving put througli promptly
Some one of ur exchanges boasts that
riattsmouth is not the third city in the
state, because our telephone exchange is
not as large as it ought to be. A'e do
not measure our citizenship by the tele
phone monopoly. We have a system of
public schools, and.seyeral thousand school
children, however, who rise up and testi
fy as to our population in a manner that
can not be gainsaid.
We hear a great deal in these days
f ilemocratic purity ( '.) about "Jeffcr-
on! mi simplicity." There is one particu
lar point in which the present adminis
tration is simple, precisely like the work
of tint great Jefferson. Jefferson was
pre-eminently a politician and. to gain
favor with the people who were in sym
pathy with the French in their struggle
with monarchy, made his country's inter
est subservient to those of France. Both
as secretary of state and at president, he
ued his influence to this end even to
schooling the French minister how to gain
favor with Washington. Almost an ex
act parallel is seen in the present admin
istration, except England is the one to be
benefitted primarily, but all foreign coun
ties to a certain degree. Cleveland and Bay
ard have knelt before England when the
country was insulted in the fishery troubles
And to further convince the people that
they are groveling invertibratcs they now
come out in favor of free trade; ready t
blind the people and sell out our own
industries to those of foreigners. The
present administration is more simple
than its great example, for the people of
to-day are not paltry bidders for foreign
favor, nor will they support a man who
HOW LITTLE WE THINK F
How little we think of the dead after
they are once burried. ' How little we
think of the cold upturned face, the
crossed hands, the closed eyelids and the
silence of the grave after a person has
been once buried. How little we think
of our dead when the music of the ball
room floats upon our ears. How little
we think of those that have passed be
yond this life when we hear the sleigh
bells, or are reading quietly by the fire
side. Ah, friends, if we only did think
of our dead what a world this would be,
our hearts would be forever full, yes, too
full, they Would be overflowing, you
would never see a cheerful face with a
smile upon it waiting patiently for
father or mother, brother or sister to
come home; you would never see the
bright hours spent as they are now; but
you would see them spent in mourning
for some lost loved one who has passed
from this life and now enjoys the silence
of the grave aad we hope it is all for the
How little we think of the death of
Crover Cleveland at the election of 1SSS.
Ah, my dear friends, those three eights
are hi? grave, the crosses on the eights
mean the death of the democratic pa:ty
with their hai-ls crossed forever after to
enjoy the silence of the grave, and yet
we hope it is all for the best.
FA CTS AND FANCIES.
Ik his message to congress Mr. Cleve
land says: '"These (tariff) laws as the'r
primary and plain effect, raise the price
to consumers of all imported articles sub
ject to duty by precisely the sum paid
for such duties." Now let us see how
this fanciful statement will stand in the
light of the actual facts. The price of
steel rails in England is i-20 per ton, the
duty is 17. and freight $2.."i0 per ton.
According to Mr. Cleveland's theory ilcjr
value here must !e $'.$9. 10, but the mar
ket quotations puts them nt In
I885 the same quality of rails soldjorj
nir l ' . m ' 1
same rule, iliv value of mils in England
must have been $7.50, but us a matter of
fact the actual price was S20. Again,
cut nails have sold here at per keg
of lOOlbs, while the duty was $1.50. Mr.
Cleveland says that Mould make the
price f:t.:t5 here, or else their European
price must have been cents, but the
price over there was if 1.5.1. Will some
Free-Trader reconcile these facts and
fanciest Or, if that is too easy, try to
crack this nut: The dutv on calico is 5
cents per yard, and it can be bought in
New York to-day for 4 cents per yard.
hence it must be worth one cent less than
nothing in Europe. But here is an
opiate which may soothe Mr. Cleveland's
over-wrought brain; Chloroform is sub
ject to a duty of 50 cents per pound,
while the price here is 35 cents per
pound, therefore the European druggists
must be able to give 15 cents per pound
for carrying it away. We advise Mr.
Cleveland to lay the tracts of the Cob
den Club aside and pay some little at
tention to the reports of the Bureau of
Statistics but as they are home pro
ducts they may not be to him such agree
able reading as the English article.

Five years ago three co-operative sock-ties
undertook tho construction of a
new quartet-' that- now comprises 289
houses and is traversed hj several streets.
Every house has leen promptly rented,
and in twenty years will become the
property of the tenants. Each of the
latter payn from forty to fifty cents a
week rent, and In return enjoys the me
of two rooms with alcoves, a kitchen,
a cellar and a garret, iKwides u small
garden. Every house has separate water

on the tenant is to pay his rent regularly
for twenty-five years. This condition
speaks volumes for the stability of Dutch

We find in neck wraps a common
cause of "colds." If during winter one
was certain to wear much the same wrap
at all times when in the open air, there
would lx less danger from it. But the
chances are that on wome occasions when
it should Ik; worn it will be left off, either
purjxwely or forgotten, and a cold is the
result. The silk handkerchiefs with
which many men adorn themselves cause
more sore throats than any other influ
ence. When once put on the wearers
are wedded to them for the remainder of
the winter. Hall's Journal of llealth.
The Musquito's Poison.
Formic acid is tho substance which
ants, wasps, etc., deposit under the skin,
and which produces the intense burning

enough to contain much more of it the
bite of that creature would be very dan
gerous. Chicago News.
We have read a good deal about the

How Men Die.
II we know all the methods of approach
adopted by an enemy we are thu better
enabled to ward off the danger and post
pone the moment when surrender becomes
inevitable. In many instances the inher
ent strength of the body suffices to enable
it to oppose the tendency toward death.
Many however have lost these forces to
such an extent that there is little or no
help. In other cases a little aid to the
weakened lungs will make all the 'differ
ence between sudden death and many
years of useful life. Upon the first symp
toms of a cough, cold or any trouble of
the throat or lungs, give that old and
well known remedy Boschee's German
Syrup., a careful trial. It will prove
THE ARCEITER KOLONIE.
Germany's Attempted Solution of thu Prob
lem of Dealing with the Unemployed.
For several years a movement has liet-n
progressing in (Jermany to solve logically
tho problem of dealing with the unem
ployed, iiidciH-iidcntly of alms giving and
charities. Though little lias been re
jxjrU'd of the societies having the work
in charge, then? have l en very satisfac
tory results attained in the past three
years, and the success of the Arbiter
kolonie, of Berlin, the most important
colony, h.'is lee!i of a character to recom
mend tho plan to all large cities of Euro e
ami of tlie United States us well. How
to deal with men out of work without
making them a charge ujon the county
is a question for most serious considera
tion; yet it has never been squarely met
nor studiously investigated. Any ono
who will take the trouble and look into
the labor ami aid statistics of a large city,
even inlxmnteous America, will be aston
ished at the large percentage of jiersons
capable of doing work who are, never
theless, objects of common charity, or
are on the dependent rolls of the country.
The condition is proportionately worse
in many Eurojiean countries, but Ger
many is the only country in which has
been undertaken a practical plan of deal
ing with the idle classes that are willing
to work but are unable to find employ
ment. The colonies referred to, of which that
of Berlin is tho fittest example, were or
ganized 4 'to employ industrious and un
employed men of all professions and
classes, so far as they are really capable
of work, in agrarian and other labor
until it is possible to procure them re
munerative work elsewhere and to help
them to quit the life of itinerants, and
also to removo the excuse of lazy vaga
bonds that they ha-e no work." The
Berlin colony was founded in 18S3. It
has a plot of land several acres in ex
tent, on which fruits, llowers and vege
tables are cultivated, and several shops,
besides lodging and eating apartments,
where various trades and general work
may l)e engaged in. An investment of
more than 85,000 marks is represented.
Besides the garden and fruit culture tho
occupations are straw plaiting, carpen
tering, shoemaking and copying, and all
kinds and conditions of workmen are
represented, including tradesmen, clerks
and writers, apothecaries, engineers,
teachers, servants, etc. There are three
systems of employing colonists work on
the premises on behalf of the institution,
work on the premises for outside parties,
who furnish their own tools and raw ma
terial, and work on the outsido under
The cost of keep is six shillings half
penny a day, but all earned in excess of
thit goes to the credit of the workman
who receives his surplus earnings on
quitting tho institution. Some, of coursp,
do not earn their keep, and the colony is
not reimbursed for excess of expenditure
on their behalf. The proportion of these
is not large. The two objects of the
colony, to do away with begging and
indiscriminate alms giviDg, and to give
tho honest unemployed a chance to work
till better employment can be secured for
them, are doubly encouraged by the
public. That is to say, the householder
gives to the beggar at his door a ticket
entitling liim to admission to the colony,
where work may be had, and general
employers give preference to the applica
tions of the colony. So well has the plan
worked that, despite its comparative
newness in tho reformatory field, the
Berlin colony has received 595 colonists,
all of whom were relieved from pressing
want and most of whom were helped to
settled employment at their own trades.
Small as these figures are in them
selves, they are large when taken into
account with the fact that there is less
mendicancy in Berlin than, in any other
great city of the world. Indeed, Ger
many is exceptionally free from beggars.
Moreover, tha rVjlqnies are only for those
who can and wjll work, but aie unable
to find employment. We hardly need
moralize on the good results possible to
be accomplished by an institution that
steps in between unemployed workmen
and beggary or starvation, or the crimes
of desperation. Nor need it be urged
that there are few better ways for th
utility of practical philanthropy. The
moral influences of sucU a movement; are
incalculable, and the material good to be
accomplished not inconsiderable. An in
stitution of the kind could quickly be
made self supporting; or if it were not
the indiscriminate charities now so lib
erally dispensed pould be turned wisely
to its maintenance, CJdoqgq Inter
Ocean. Some Curious Sensations.
Under this head Dr. Urbanschitsch, of
Vienna, reports some curious experi
ments, the value of which must be left to
future research to decide. His general
conclusion is, that the excitation of one
sense organ increases the acuteness of the
others. If a disk bo regarded at such a
distance that its color is indistinct, the
hearing of a sound will bring out the
color. The beating of a watch is heard
more clearly with the eyes oien than with
the eyes closed. Bed and green increase
auditory perceptions; blue and yellow
weaken them. The fact that we listen to
music with our eyes closed is due to other
reasons, and also to the fact that the
ensemble appears best when the tones are
not at their clearest. Smell, taste and
touch are open to the same influence.
Bed and green increase the sensitiveness
of each of these senses; yellow and blue
weaken their Eensitiveru?ss, Touch and
temperature have a reciprocal influence.
If one tickles the skin and plunges it into
warm water the tickling ceases ; if into
cold water, the tickling brings out the
feeling of cold. These observations are
regarded as showing tho same re-enforcing
action between sensations as has been
Bhown to exist between motions, and as
offering a mode of explanation of those
curious associations between colore and
sounds so insistent in come minds,
