Seelky, Chairman. Secretary. HOSCOE CONK LING. The dispatches today bring the sad news of the death of Mr. Conkling. Al though it has been expected all along that each day the announcement of his death would be made, still it is a shock to the country. Mr. Conkling was :i magnificent specimen of mankind, and his friends did not until late yesterday afternoon admit that hope of his recovery was gone. Mr. Cookling was a man of marked characteristic a .very positive man; a man of intense likes and dislikes. He was a man who never deserted, and a foe who never turned his back. Withal. ar,d this none will deny, he was an honest man. During lis long public life no one. even in the heat of political contention, ever charged dishonesty against him. IIi. death will be widely and sincerely mourn ed. The Republicans of Maryland adopted resolutions by the State League at Balti more last Friday, that are unconiproniic ingly in favor of protection, and favor large reductions in the internal revenue taxes. The Mormon elders and apostles have evidently abandoned the idea of securing Utah's Admission as a State by pretending they have removed the doctrine of poly gamy. One of ths loudest talkers in the Mormon conference, now being hi Id at Salt Like City, declares that polygamy i a fundamental law of of their religion, and is the man who was recently pardoned o'H of tli3 penitentiary by President Cleveland, anl boasts of the fact that he suffered "martyrdom" rather than to sur render his belief in the right of a Mormon . to have as many wives as he likes. Mr. Phelps, who has come over from London to enjoy a brief vacation that he has fairly earned, talks interestingly on a variety of topics ia the interviews that were recently had with him. He puts at rest the gossip about the possibil ity tlfat he may be the successor of Chief Justice Waite by saying that his name will be mentioned in connection with the appointment. lie naturally approves the Fisheries Treaty, and he hopes that both it and the Extradition Treaty will be ratified. On the question of vIIome Rale in Ireland be is non-committal. v It is gratifying to note that our Minister has not become so much of an English man by his residence abroad as not to ba able to re-ent Mr. Arnold' strictures on thing-. American. He pronounces Mr. Arnold's statements unfair and unjust 'cw York Tribune. ; Even in Great Britain the income tax is unpopular. For many years past it has been one of the chief sources of rev enue in that country, amounting in 1887, with the property tax, to about $80,000, 000, as compared with $100,000,000 from customs duties and $130,000,000 from internal taxes. Mr. Goschen, the Chan cellor of the Kxchequar, proposes to re duce this tax, although he creates other imposts to enable him to lower thisbne. The attitude of the present Chancellor towards that tax does not differ mater ially rota that of moit of his more re cent predecessors. The difficulties in the way of the thorough and honest collec tion of this tax are fewer in England than they were in this country during the war or than they would be now. The American Congressmen who desire to secure the passage of a new income-tax law would do well to inquire into the working of the act during the period in which it was on our national statute book.

The Hnrniaii and His Focil. The Burmnn a rather peculiar feeder, not lx-inK very nice in his selection or preparation of food. He is not, however, so varied n caterer, nor does he take in such ti larse selection, as his near relation the Chinaman. The Burman draws the line at rats and mice, which delicacies form no portion of his daily fare. Ho is forbidden by his religion to shed the blood of any animal for food purposes alone, although he may and does catch li.sh, and eats them. His conscience finds a salve in the fact that after the fisti are caught they are left to die; he will not bleed them, although li3 may often give them a sly knock on tha head to accelerate their decease. He may keep cattle, hogs, chickens, etc., and, bcim? of a kind and humane disposition, he feeds them well, keeping them in good condition, but he does not do so to replenish his larder. He uses the milk of the cows, often of tho tame long horned buffalo or of goats, for his family or for salo; he will also eat ihe eggs of fowls. San Francisco Chronicle. An Explanation. What is this "nervous trouble" with which so many seem now to be aillicted? If you will remember a few years ago the word Malaria was comparatively un known, today it is as common as any word in the English language, yet this word covers only the meaning of another word used by our forefathers in times past. So it is used with nervous diseases, as they and Malaria arc intended to cover what our grandfathers called Biliousness, and all are caused by troubles that arise froai a diseased condition of the Liver which in performing its functions finding it cannot dispose of the bile through the ordinary channel is compelled to pass it off through the system causing nervous troubles, Malaria, Bilious Fever, etc. You who are suffering can well appreci ate a cure.

Joseph Dngnfol, the cook to whom it ia said Mr. W. K. Vandcrbllt Is to give $10, 000 a year, is a well built little man only about five feet tall. He was born in Bir mingham, England. He looks like an Englishman, and speaks the language with a strong cockney accent, and he has an Englishman's love for boxing, and uses the slang of the ring. His parents, he says, were French. "If I were rich enough not to have to work," he said, "I should still do my business for the love of it. I am an artist, and I have invented a new school of dining. Because a man is rich he can not eat more than a poor man, and yet the idea of a fine dinner has been to give a great number of courses. It Is a mistake When a man has eaten his oysters, his soup, his entrees, his fish, what chance has he to enjoy his mutton or fowl? When he has eaten all, his stomach is so!" and lie raised his hat with both hands slowly above hitj head to indicate the effect of the fullness. 'I make him want to cat. First he must be hungry, and then I put things before him so that he wants them. If I want him to eat oranges, for instance, I offer them to his neighbor. He sees them and asks for them." He comes from the Maison Paillard, in the Chaussee d'Antin. "It is only & little place," he said, "with only sixteen tables. When I went there the business was all run down. I built it up by treating each person as if he were my guest, and study ing his tastes." . The little director is an autocrat at the table. He does not let his guest3 have whatever they like, for fear it may clog their appetites. "I make them ask for things and keep them waiting. Suppose I have served a dinner like this today: A soup, some fish, and a woodcock, with coffee and fruit. To-morrow my customer asks for woodcock. 'I am sorry, sir, but I cannot prepare it.' But in a day or two he will ask for it again, and then I let him have it. If I let him tire of anything, then my art would be gone." A great advantage which Mr. Dugniol claims for his system is that it leaves him so much greater variety of food to oiler on different days. "Suppose," he said, "I cook everything that is to be had for one great dinner, what is there for to-morrow?" It is not to be suppose! from this lan guage inai josepu is goi 10 cooit any thing with his own hands. lie does not even profess to be able to do this, although his father was a restaurateur and Joseph grew up in the business. "I can cook many things," he said, "and I can carve as few men can, but 1 can tell tho cook how to prepare his food and warn him if he has failed to secure the proper flavor." It may be interesting to know how Joseph will serve a woodcock to Mr. Yan derbilt. It will be cooked only ten min utes before it is brought on the table. "I will bring it on while the fish is being eaten, and I have an alcohol brasier on the table. It has a sauce of red wine and gravy in it. I carve the bird and put all the bones and back into the sauce. The odor and appearance of the bird excites the appetite. It takes twenty-flve min utes to cook a woodcock. The bird has only been cooked ten minutes when I carve it. Now I send the meat back to the ovep for fifteen minutes, and the back and the bones, in which the richest flavor is found, are left to stew. When the meat comes back it is on a hot plate, and I strain the rich sauce over it." New iTork Sun. Following a Slight Mistake. It is surprising to know that a great failure of a business house will sometimes follow the very slight mistake of a clerk. Only a short time ago I feared we would have to record an unpleasant occurrence of this kind in St. Louis. Two young men are doing a prosperous wholesale business here, in whose house a small error hap pened recently, which mightrhave caused a collapse of the firm. According to cus tom a list of notes falling due at foreign banks each month is given to the book keeper or some proper person around the office, who i3 expected to go to the-home bank with which the firm deals and have all the notes paid. The bookkeeper of this particular house was given a list of the notes for one month, but inadvertently failed to report one of the bills due in New York, and, of course, it was not set tled by the home bank. The note went to protest before the firm knew that it had not been paid, but when the error was dis covered a settlement promptly followed. Suppose that the creditors of the firm had heard that the note had gone to protest, they would have jumped to the conclusion that the firm was financially embarrassed. All the creditors would have rushed in at once, probably, and under the immense pressure a disastrous failure might have been precipitated. The genius of a suc cessful mercantile man lie3 in his accurate knowledge and careful supervision of the details of his business. J. B. Young in G lobe-Democrat, Forests and Rainfall. Forests are known to diminish evapora tion and preserve moisture, and this has been explained by the lower temperature and greater humidity which exists under their shadows. The most important fac tor in the production of this state of af fairs is. however, the resistance which is offered to the winds by the woods. The force of the winds being greatly reduced under the trees, the air is changed more slowly, and the moisture less readily car ried away. The quantity of rain increases in the vicinity of a forest. During tho rainy season the moss and herbage of woods store up the moist nre for consump tion during the dry season, and it is in this way that luxuriant forest growths are permitted to nourish in regions where it never rains except in the fall and win ter, as is the case on the coast of the Caspian sea. Globe Democrat. When the Singer Chokes Down. It is related of a certain manager of a variety theatre in Peoria, Ills., that every Monday night when a company of new per formers open for the week he takes a seat near a large coal stove at -the back of the theatre, and, when Hie serio-comic makes her appearance, listens attentively to learn how her singing pleases the audi ence. If she happens to turn out what is known as "queer" the manager gets up, seizes the shaker and proceeds to shake down the 6tove as briskly as possible until the serio etc.", has finished her turn. The reason for this is obvious. Detroit Free Press. A Square Minister. After one or two gentle efforts on the part of the collector to awaken Deacon Jones, the minister said from the pulpit: "Never mind, Brother Layman, as Deacon Jones has not heard the sermon, perhaps It would not be right to expect him to pay anything for it."
