Cleveland's majority over Blaine in
New Jersey was just 4,411. The narrow
margin of Democratic safety in that State
is made still narrower by the return to
the Republican ranks of thousands of
temperance Republicans who have been

who cannot foresee the inevitable result
of any attempt to force upon the Demo

"And the boy?"

He rodo about a ruilo and then got off
without his cap."
"But what about the Aggers?"
"I'm coming to them. He threw out
six empty bags worth thirty-five cents

A Shoe Sealer.
The western and southern shoe trade
demands a wider last than is used in the
east. This is not altogether due to dif
ferences in the pedal structure. There
aro notions that prevail among dealers as
to how a shoe should bo fitted, which ore
peculiar to sections. The eastern retailer
prevails on a lady to wear n shoo that is
often a full size longer than her foot.
Have plenty of room in that direction,
the foot can then be fitted with a nar
rower shoe, with a slimmer and more
elegant appearance. On tho other hand,
western and southern dealers make the
lit snug as to length, and often after tho
shoe is worn a few days tho great too
protrudes over the sole. Being crowded
longitudinally, tho foot must have room
some way, and the wider last is therefore
used. Tho eastern is the correct method
of fitting, being less injurious to the feet,
and the shoes will wear better and look
1 otter after a fortnight's wear. "Dealer"
The Next Census.
Already plans are in outline for the
L collection of the eleventh national cen
sus. Many of tho shortcomings of the
methods of 18S0 are to be remedied.
That census was more complete than any
previous one, but the work was so much
greater than the sum available to pay for
it that iu day of greatest use was over
before it was put in a shape to be availa
ble. Gen. Francis A. Walker, who was
superintendent of the last census, advo
cates the collection of the statistics two
years hence by the national bureau of
statistics, which has Carroll D. Wright
at its head. He also suggests that tho
statistics of population be taken by one
set of enumerators and published as early
as possible. There is a disposition to
make the census of 1890 even more com
plete than that of 1880. Pluladelphia
Cemetery in Tangier.
Not far from the market place, upon
the hillside, is the public cemetery a
forlorn and dreary place full of sprawl'
ing cacti and brambles. Some of the
graves are inclosed with rude low walls,
a few have stones of turban shape, hut all
look crude and cheerless. We saw two
or three women sitting among the graves,
enveloped in their white liaiks. and look
ing like the risen ghosts of those who
slept below. True to the tenderness of
their sex the world over, they had gone
to the graves of their friends "to weep
there." Near by, and also close to the
old citadel, we saw tombs of former
shereefs low, square structures, sur
mounted with domes, all of dazzling
whiteness from frequent whitewashing.

Ilrpth of Wave Action.
The depth to which wave action ex
tends lias been differently estimated, but
it varies from seventy feet to 150 feet, as
shellfish which are known only to live at
these depths are thrown upon the shore
during heavy gales, and it has been as
certained tjisit shingle is moved in a
depth of fifty feet. Fot? all practical
purposes, however, so far as harbor
works are concerned, it is found that
there is 'little movement of materials

water, the foundations of breakwaters
hitherto constructed not having been dis
turbed below these levels. The Scots

of the year, to purify the blood, invigor.
ate the system, excite the liver to action,
and restore healthy tone and vigor to the

the quality, not quantity, constitutes the
value of medicine.
Clergymen, lawyers, public speakers,
singers, and actois, all recognise the vir
tues of Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. One of
our most eminent public men says: "It
is the best remedy that can be procured
for all affections of the vocal organs,
throat, and lungs."
How Men Die,
If we know all the method of approach
adopted by an enemy we are the better
enabled to ward off the danger and post
pone the momeat when surrender becomes
inevitable. In many instances the inher
ent strength of the body suffices te enable
it to oppose the tendency toward death.
Many however have lost these forces -.to
-tuh an extent that there is little or no
help. In other cases a little aid to the
weakened lungs trill make all the differ
ence between sudden deajh aod ntauy
years of useful life. Upon the first symp
toms of a cough, cold or any trouble of
the throat cr lungs, give that old and
well known remedy Boschee'.s German
Syrup, a careful trial. It will prove
what thousands say of it to be, the "bene
factor of any home."

WOMAN'S WORK AND PAY.
How Production la J'rortuccd at the Ex

woman engaged in the amelioration of
tho condition of women, "that feteam
Iower applied to sewing machines les
sens the labor of tho ojrtratives. It
merely increases production. When foot
jwwer was used the operator could rest,
in a measure, by working at a flower
pace. With steam jxwer no such lati

to keep up. A half hour is allowed for
lunch. Occasionally three or four min
utes are allowed abnenco by permission
from the room, but a minute ovt-r this
time brings its lln?. The contractors for
cheap work give out tho finishing of
coats by the dozen for four cents ea h.
The finishing of a coat is understeod to
mean everything but the machine work.
A mother and (laughter, coat finishers,
by working fourteen hours a day were
able to finish a dozen each. That is to
say, twenty-eight 1 tours' labor earned
ninety-six cents. This is a good record
for such work.
"Coat finishers," continued the re
former, "for such goods a:j are sold by the
larger Broadway houses, receive eighteen
to thirty five cents. How neatly nnd
carefully such work is done the wearers
of these coats know. It would be a very
expert worker "that could finish mora
than two of these coats in an ordinary
"Coat finishing is done under contract.
It is perhaps fair to the lr.r.cjer well estab

know the conditions under which it is

"A woman, for making a pair of cheap
trousers, receives nine cents a piece, the
usual price. By working all day and
into the night bho can make two pairs.
On the eighteen cents a day she earns she
supports herself nnd four little children,
for sho is a widow, Fully one-third of
tho working women of this city are out
of employment. From day to day they
watch and follow the weary trail of tho

but from $10 to $13 a wesk, Tho samo

Chinese Gamblers' Superstitions.
Chinese gamblers aro more supersti
tious than the mas3 of their countrymen.
All colors, eavo white, are carefully
avoided by the owners in the walls end
decorations of their gambling room3,
White, the color of mourning and of tho
robes worn by the spirits of tho doad,
always considered inauspicious, is as
sociated with the idea of losing money,
and is believed to bring bad fortune to
their patrons, with corresponding gains
to themselves. Even the inscriptions to
the tutelary gods are always written upon
white paper, and whito candles aio
burned before hi3 shrine instead of the
red ones ordinarily used. Gamblers on
their way to play fun tan will turn back
if any one jostles them or they happen to
come in contact with any obstruction. If
a player's hand encounters another's ns
lis lays his stake on tho table he will not
put his money on the number toward
which he was reaching.
Gamblers refrain from reading books
before playing, and books are not icT
garded with favor in gambling houses
from the word "she" (book) sounding
like "the" (to lose money). All inau
spicious words are avoided. Thus tho
almanac, "Hung f;he," i3 always called
"Gut sing" through unwillingness to
utter tho ominous "she." This book is
of daily use among gambler., for in its
calendar of lucky and unlucky days thcro
is special mention of the days favor? bit
for playing and, besides, it always con-,
tains a dream book, ar.d they attach
much importance to tho interpretation of
dreams. New York Times.
A I'lay in Prison.
"Of all the experiences I ever had,"
remarked Annie Russell, "the most
singular was when f was a child playin-;
in a juvenile 'Pinafore' company. "We
were to give a performance on Christmas
day in Auburn penitentiary before the
convicts. I shall never for-jct the feel
ing that came over me as I passe .1
through these frowning gates. Wp
dressed behind screens on an improvised
stage, and while wc were so occupied e
heard tho wardens speaking to and ar
ranging the prisoners, I had never bo
fore heard human beings spoken to so
roughly. When I came out upon the
stage and saw that sea of faces, many of
the most repulsive type, and knew that
nearly every crime had its representative
there, I could scarcely go on. At first
their iaughter was terrifying. It was
so coarse it seemed bestial rather than
human. But little by little the charm of
the music and the sight of the fresh
young faces softened-them. They quieted
down, till from their behavior one could
scarcely have told them from an ordinafy
audience. And at last I saw many weep
ing and somft sobbing almot convul
sively. It was a wonderful experience,
and I do not regret having known it, but
I do not think anything could tempt me
to go through
it again." New York
