The Mills free trade gang me figuring
on scheme to down Randall and de
prive h'ui) of his influence in the house to
command votes for his bill. As chair
man of the committee on appropriations
Mr. Hand a? 1 has ft pull in many direc
tions until the appropriation bills are all
out of the way, and hence Mills and his
friends are anxious to get the appropria
tion bills through before anthing further
U doue on the tariff bill. If this is done
3Ir. Randall will be shorn of one element
of strength, and the free traders w ill
breath just that much easier. lUit from
all information obtainable the Randall
faction is likely to cause trouble in the
democratic camp, no difference when the
final vote on the Mills bill is taken.
There seems to be no lack of harmony
nmong the democratic press of the state
in regard to the course to pursue on the
tariff question. The general verdict is
to keep still; you don't want to say any
thing but that the tariff is a robery and
stick to it. You don't need to give your
reasons, and have a republican come
along and knock them all over. The
tari ff robs the laboring classes. It does
lecause you know it doc?, and any one
that wont accept this reason don't know
what he i talking about. This will be
the argument of the democratic speakers
and what fine argument it is. It seems
to us that our friends forget that ,ye live
in a progressive age an age of reason
and a statement without principles to
uppoit it has very little effect ar the
rrreuent time. But our democratic friends
reroeuibcring that they have a very weak
plank to fcUud on have come to this de
cision, that the enly thing necessary is to
make the statement and not to try to
brace it no with principle for if you do
some republican will come along with a
few word and d wn comes your meat
house. "O consistency thou art a jewel."

New Caxto.x, 111., May IS, 183$. To
All Charitably Disposed Persons: The
undersigned would respectfully represent
that the Sny Levee on the Mississippi
River, that formerly protected over
103,000 acres of land, and embracing a
terrritory fifty-two miles in length, has
this week been broken by the great flood
in the Mississippi River, thereby inundat
ing the entire district and destroying all
Jbe crops, sad driving from their homes
the residents and tenants of the leveo, dis
trict, causing many to lose all they
possessed and making a large number of
families dependent upon ciiirity; and, as
the losi and distress is so great, render
ing s many families destitute, we have
thought it proper to ask for aid for the
unfortunate ones, as their needs are be
yond the ability of the district to pro
vide. We ask in charity from all kindly
disposed, gifts of money, provisions and
supplies of all kinds. Contributions may
bo sent to any of the undersigned, who
will carefully and equitably distribute to
those whose needs are the greatest. AVe
trust you will contribute, as our appeal
is for worthy and industrious people,
who will gratefully apereciatc aid in this
their greatest affliction.
In consequence of the washout of near
ly all the railroads, supplies can be sent
to Barry, 111., on the Wabash Railway.

DANGEROU3 TO HANDLE HIDES.
Warning to Those Who Work In Leather
Stores Mood roiatouluz.
Too death of Thomas Young some tlmo
ago, a workman in a Spruce street wholesale
leather house, from poison received ia band
ling hides, has caused talk among leather
dealers. William Palen said; "1 seo that
Young thought that be had been bitten by
some insect that burrowed in a bide. 1 differ
from that. 1 have known of poisonous in
sects, such as the scorpion, to be found in the
hides, but never knew of any men being bit
ten by them. Young probably raised a bun
dle of hides to his sbouldcr and it scratched
his neck, causing an abrasion of the skin,
through which the poison in the bide entered
his system. In my father's tannery, over
thirty-flve years ago, 1 used to see men with
their arms frightfully 6wollen through hav
ing been poisoned in handling hides. One
man employed here in Spruce street lost an
eye In this way. Physicians, iu making an
autopsy, may be poisoned similarly if any
abrasion of their skin is exposed to tbo virus
of any diseased organ of a subject they are
examining. Most of the bides likely to be dis
eased come from the East Indies, the Argun
tine Confederation and other foreign porta.
I have never known men to be poisoned in
handling our own American hides, which are
pretty sure to come from stock that has been

gerous illness that a man can suffer from
than that of blood poisoning from coming in
contact with the hide of an animal that bos
died of a virulent disease. If I should t

should go home and make my wilL If a
man is poisoned in the hand bis chance of
recovery is good, but let him be poisoned in
the head or neck, and it is two to one that he
dies. 1 have known of half a dozen deaths
in Ave years, two of them being of men in
our own employ, from the same cause that
killed Young. Hides include those of ani
mals that have been killed and whose skins
are healthy ; those of fallen cattle, or thoso
that have been frozen or died of starvation,
whoso minute blood vesseU, in the fleshy
part of tho hide, coagulato and turn the skin
black, and lastly, of those of diseased cattle,
that also turn black and have patches of hair
gone in places. Of course, tho ordinary
workman cannot make these distinctions, but
they can protect themselves from danger if
they would cover any abrasion of the skin nt
oneo with court plaster or wear gloves when
at work. There is no danger in handling
our native hides, because the men west don't
remove the skin from an animal that had
died of any disease.
"The most dangerous hides come from coun
tries where the workmen are very poor and
labor for a few cents a day. Particularly
dangerous hides come from tho East indies,
Central America and Mexico. W hen one of
our own men, Samuel McWilliams, died some
years ago from blood poisoning, resulting
from handling hides, it was said that he died
from arsenical poisoning. This was wrong,
as the amount of arsenic used in curing a
bido so that insects can't eat it is infinitesi
mal and could not harm any one. The first
symptom of blood poisoning from a diseased
bide that ap;enrs in the victim is a red spot
with a hard white center, similar in appear
ance to the sting mark of a bee. After a few
hours the affected part begins to swell rap
idly, and the disease speedily affects a con
siderable portion cf tbo body. Handling
hides will continue to bo a most ds.:)ge;xu:!
business until tho men learn to take proper
precautions in their work." New York Sun.
no Wasn't a Woman.
Thero are a good many strango features in
London journalism. For some years past a
writer, whose signature was "Miranda," fur
nished sundry columns of feminine gossip
every week to The lady's Pictorial, and now
it comes as rather a shock to tho readers of
that paper to discover that "Miranda" was a
male individual and bore the name of Archi
bald McNeilL Young girls, middle aged girls,
elderly girls girls of all sorts,in fact poured
their confidences into "Miranda's" ear. The
wrote asking him to expound dark point's re
garding stockings and fi-iliing; they consulted
him on comestics and hair washes and things
that would remove pimples; they took his
opinion on tho subject of trimmings for deli
cate garments which are worn in the silent
watch3 cf the night, and "Miranda" an
swered them ail a.n4 breathed soft confi
dences into the pink ear of tho public. They
all gave themselves away under tho impres
sion that he was a woman, and he wasn't a
woman after all.
And now "Miranda" has como to a sudden
end. It would have been all right, doubt
less, if he bad confined himself strictly to
writing woman items, as that is an occupa
tion at which comparatively few men get
murdered if they are ordinarily careful, but
he went cway to report the Smith-Ivilrain
prize fight, and a q.aj Jater his dead body was
found in the Seine. The man who had eo
long dispensed sago advice on stockings and

Au Incident la High Life.
A young millionaire of this city, who in
herited a celebrated grocery establishment,
the revenues of which he yet enjoy3, narrates
an experience that he recently had in high
ljfe. The impending marriage of a member
of tho "npper fsw hundred," who bad or.ca
been a schoolmate of his, and vyitb whom h i
bad kept upon acquaintance, was announced.
He did not get au invitation to the dude's
wedding, but was favored with a uota from
him: "You will bo surprised at not receiv
ing an invitation to my wedding, but really
1 rcut be frank with you. 1 have a high re
gard for you personally, but you are a
grocer, and 1 regret to tell you thst the ap
pearance of a grocery man at my wedding
would give offense to the society people who
are to be present, " etc., etc
This awful slight bas not entirely destroyed
the successor of his father in the grocery line.
Ha is rather pleased to tell that be bas had a
visit from a society swell who was so happy
as to be favored with an invitation to the
wedding and who asked the privilege of bor
rowing enough money to buy an outfit worthy
of the occasion. The grocer loaned him tho
cash, and the best man at the wedding will
appear in a suit that bas been paid for by
the grocer to whom the groom could not
send an invitation. IJew York Sun.
Ono Way to Get Klch.
A story has lately been told that illus
trates A. T. Stewart's noted economic spirit.
He had given a dinner end theatre party,
and instead of taking his guests to the the
atre in carriages, as they had expected, he
hailed a stage and democratically bustled
them all into it. Judge and Mrs. Hilton were
of the party. VVhils .paying tho fares Mr.
Stewart dropped a piece of money, and dur
ing almost the entire trip kept turning up
the straw in the bottom of the stage in
search of it. Judge Hilton, who was sitting
near him, took from his pocket a nickel, and,
passing it to the millionaire, said: "For
heaven's sake, Mr. Stewart, put this in your
pocket, and don't kick up any more dust
with that straw." .New York Sun.
