The increase in the price of wheat in
the past six monthis means an increase
of about $100,000,000 in the pockets of
producers, inidlemen and speculator?.
Wool stands sixth in the list of Ameri
can products, being exceeded in value by
corn, hay, wheat, cotton and oats only.
Yet the Mills bill puts -wool on the free
list, and thus seaks to crush this impor
tant American industry. No intelligent,
public spirited American can conscien
tiously vote for the party that supports
the Mills hill.
Ma. Cleveland is not writing a letter
of indorsement for Gov. Hill. He did a
service like this for Johu R. Fellows, the
candidate for district attorney, a year ago,
but he will hardly do it for Hill. If he
neglects to indorse Hill thousands of
stalwart democrats will cut him for Har
rison, and if he dots the indorsing act
.the mugwumps will go over to Harrison.
The theory may be all right, but the con
dition tells .Mr. Cleveland that a man
named Benjamin is going to be elected
president of the United State this year.

General Black, commissioner of pen
sions, has !eut to the printer his report
for the year inding the GOth of June last,
and places the annual pension list at
something like $31,000,000. This is a jug
gle with figures, and the country ought
to understand that. The actual pension
list of the country, the annual payment
for the annual accumulations of pensions
is less than $40,000,600, le?s than half
what the administration U trying to make
the people to understand it to be, the
true figure; but it comes about in this
way: There are some arrears on the
Mexican pen-ions. They were allowed
in great numbers aud paid promptly.
There were thus numlers allowed during
the year that ran hack in arrears to 1880,
mid there were tens of thousands that
ran back as far as 18S0, and the total
payment for the year was the gross sum
that Commissioner Black talks about.
It would tVsjust as f.iir if a man does not
pa his taxes lor a year and then pays
$400, to say bis faxes amocnt to $400, as
to take this assertion of Gen. Black liter

soldiers who were honorably discharged
from the army, and who aided to save
the country and make possible the pay

debt, which has already assumed an ag

What do you know of this report

those dreadful republican . papers wont
get hold of it."
" But. Sire."
" What, Daniel i "
"Tliere is more to the letter."
'Well, read if."
"They ask if your excellency will not
send another check for $10,000. It is
very much needed, and they say it would
assist them greatly with all the others."
Sire arises and goes to the window,

across the grounds to the Washington
Monument.
" Daniel ? "
" Yes, Sire."
" Ten thousand dollars is a good deal
of money."
" I, would buy two acres near Oak
View, Sire."
" So it would, Daniel."
"And if that should double in value ?"
"It would make back the $10,000 that
Brice lias squandered, you shall go down
and make the purchase this morning."
" Yes, Sire, I will go directly."
"And O, Daniel, before you go, just
write a little letter to Mr. Brice and tell
him to get out his circular right away,
but that it would not be best for us to
end another $10,000 at present, the pa

Thatis wisely said. You are indeed

grateful, it will build you a monument

HELPING THE SICK POOR.
AN HOUR WITH ONE OF NEW
YORK'S DESERVING CHARITIES.
Tbe rian onWhlcb the Diet Kitchen Ar
Conducted A BrUk Ladling Out of
Fresh Milk. Mutton Broth, Beef Tea.
Ktc. Gratitude.
A mite of a girl, with a scrap of a shawl
e ver her head and a dress of faded, tattered
f rint draping her attenuated little form,
waited outside a quaint, old fashioned black
doorway on Third avenue, with a small,'
shining brass door knob aud belL Presently
she was joined by a pale, anxious woman, witti
a puny baby moaning at ouch feeble, flutter
ing breath on her shoulder. Another woman,
with a sick child in her arms, had her sleeves
rolled above the elbow, and her shining,
braided hair unbounded. One or two more
children stood there, and a i-efiued looking
nmn, with a well worn, patched suit, which,
in spite of its sbabhiness, had an appearance
of gentility, and an expression of mingled
tenderness and despair on his thin, careworn
face as he looked down into the face of a
little sick child in his arms, whoso rings of
brown hair shaded dark eyes wide and wild
with fever. An old decrepit woman, with a
crutch in one hand and a pail In the other,
hobbled up to the little group, and a ladylike
looking woman with a sad face waited
quietly with the tears dropping on the dish
she caiTied iu her hands.
Presently the little- brass door knob, that
was as shiny as daily scouring could make it,
turned briskly, the dour swung back, and the
neatest, cheeriest, dearest of gray haired
women, with a strong motherly face full of
sunshine, appeared in the whitest of caps and
aprons, and exclaimed: "Biess your hearts,
it's only 0 o'clock now, whatever are you in
such a hurry for; but come right in, every
thing is all ready."
Down through the long, coed passage into
the tidiest of kitchens she hurried them,
where every Loard was scoured as white
as sand could scour it, and every dish re
flected her own bright face as she bustled
about pouring out quarts of milk and pints
of beef tea, dishing up bowls of delicious
cooked oatmeal and rice, aud pressing into
the hands of the woman and children clusters
of fresh daisies and crimson roses, faint with
fragrance and blushing at their own beauty.
'And how is the baby today F she said to
the man with the sick child, "and isn't her
mother any lietter yet Well, keep up your
courage, this beef broth will bring her up if
anything will," aud tho man went away com-.
forted with the hopeful courage in her voice.
And to tbe woman who stood apart with the
tears in her eyes she had some sympathetic
inquiry for the consumptive husband at home
as she (11 led the pitcher with beef broth aud
tucked an extra large bunch of roses through
the handle. While to the children a smile
accompanied the daisies, and a pleasant mes
sage to the sick mother at home or some
kindly interested question about the sick sis
ter or father or baby for whom the food was
given.
For four hours this brisk busy ladling out
of fresh milk and wholesome nourishing food
weut on almost uninterruptedly, and when it
was finished the white apron was wbisked
off, the tidy dress turned up over the stuff
petticoat, and the boards and benches and
tables were subjected to another scrubbing
and scalding before she was ready to go up
stairs and tell to whose bounty those most
wretched of all the city's poor were indebted
for so welcome and practical a munificence.
".Now," said she as she tucked up her
sleeves above tho hard round arms, "I'll tell
you all about it, but, if you don't mind, I'll
keep on washing up my dithes. I hate to
have them settin' 'round. This is one of the
rfre diet kitchens where nourishing food is
given to the sick poor, free of all cost, on re
ceiving a certificate from ono of the doctors
at the dispensaries with which our kitchens
are connected. One kitchen is on Thirty
sixth street and Ninth avenue, one on Third
avenue near Twenty -first street; one on Third
street, iu the German quarter; one ii connec
tion with the New York dispensary, among
the Italians, and a new one was established
this spring, in April.
"Tho first kitchen was opened fifteen years
ago, through tbe efforts of Mrs. Gibbons, who
is now our president, and one of the best and
kindest women that ever lived, doing ever so
much active charitable work, though she is
80 years old. As soon as funds were raised,
another kitchen was opened. Then rooms
were offered free of rent in the German quar
ter if they would establish a kitchen there,
and thut was opened. Rooms have been of
fered in other parts of the city free of rent,
but from lack of funds the society has de
clined them.
"How are the kitchens supported"
"By voluntary contributions from people,
churches and societies."
"What kinds of food do you give the peo
ple" "Whatever tho doctor orders. We buy
tho best and purest milk there is; milk that
cannot be bought in the shops or of the milk
men that go into the tenement districts. Our
beef tea is made of the best beef in the mar
ket, and I get np at 4 o'clock in summer to
make the tea f resh every day. In the Italian
quarter a great deal of rice is given out, and
there are oatmeal, farina, baa-ley and mut
ton broth, all given subject to the doctor's
orders. The Flower mission sends flowers
for us to distribute all summer, and wealthy
people send in jellies and dauities. At Christ
mas toys are given to tho children, and cloth
ing is also scut to us for distribution among
tho needy. At present wo are expected to
receive orders only from tha physicians con
nected with the dispensaries, but in extremo
cases we do supply orders from other doc
tors, through the district nurses."
"When is year most busy season V
'Well, in tho summer; for so many chil
dren r re sick, and then work is scarce, so thst
we have a different kmd of people coming to
us; nice, respectable working people, clerks,
teachers and mechanics, who are out of em
ployment and cannot buy the nourishing
food Ibev need and are so grateful to us
for it,"
"Do you find people grateful, usuallyF'
"Yes, really needy people are almost al
ways exatef uL Tho idle, indolent, worthless
people that coma are very independent, and
take things as If they belonged to them, but
tbe unfortunate sick people who have known
better days and are iu real cUsnress, are very
thankful. A great many Irish come to this
kitchen, and they are profuse In their grati
tude, saying over and over: 'God bless you,
lady,' 'the saints keep yon and all that, bat
I tell them they needn't bless me, but the
Christian men and women of New York who
supply the funds to help them in their need."
In tbe past year 13,303 people have received
food from tbe kitchens; and I7.17S.79 have
been paid out in tbe various expenses attend
ant upon keeping them supplied with food
and service. The articles of diet most largely
dispensed are milk and beef tea, of which

ABOUT THE MORMONS.
o Distinct fteefa of "Latter Bar Saint.'
A Brief II Into ry.
There are two distinct sects commonly
called Mormons, neither of whom recognize
the name, but both of whom call themselves
the "Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day
Saints." They both originated with Joseph
Smith in tho year 183J. Tho church under
Joseph Smith's leadership suffered porsecu
tion because they seemed to be misunderstood
by tho people. In tho United Stats many of
them were killed and their homes burned by
merciless mobs. In the year 1644 Joseph, his
brother Hyrum, John Taylor and one Rich
ards, hearing they wero to be arrested for
treason, surrendered at Nauvoo and wero
promised a fair trial. They were confined in
Carthage jaiL A mob gathered around and
forced their way into the jail, firing showers
of balls at tho prisoners' cells. In attempt
ing to escape Hyrum was shot dead, Taylor
was shot in tho leg and another ball struck
his watch, knocked him down and he rolled
under tho bed, tho mob still firing at him,
cutting from his hip a piece of flesh as large
as a man's hand. Joseph attempted to jump
out of the window, but two Italls pierced him
and he fell dead. In the excitement which
followed Taylor and Richards escaped.
At this time the church had a membership
of about 25,000. Their leader now being
dead, many different ones put in their claims
to the leadership, Brighton Young among the
number. He did not have much success at
first, aud out of the 25,000 only 10,000 ac
cepted him as their leader. With these and
other proselytes he went to tbe Great Suit
Lake Valley, and there, some eight years
after the death of Joseph Smith, he insti
tuted, among other evils, polygamy and
blood atonement, tho latter of which con
sisted in killing any member whom they
thought likely to apostatize, so that ho might
die in the faith and thus bo saved. Tbe
history of tho other organization bearing tho
same name is not so well known. At the
death of Joseph Smith thousands of his peo
ple accepted no oue as their leader. In the
years 1850 to 1S52, Jaeon W. Briggs and
Zenas Gurly endeavored to get the disbanded
people together, but neither claimed leader
ship. They taught the same doctrine that
Joseph Smith taught.
April G, 1SG9, at a conference held at Am
boy, Joseph Smith, the son of their late
president, was placed at the head of affairs,
where he remains to this day. Previous to
his accepting the presidency of the church,
he had studied law and was practicing his
profession at Nauvoo, for which place ho was
also a justice of the peace. After the organ
ization there was some trouble between them
and the Brighamitesos to who was the owner
of a temple, worth about $75,000, built at
Kirtland, O., previous to the death of Joseph
Smith, Sr.. They went to tho courts about
tho matter aud judgment was given in favor
of the Josephites it being proven that they
were the true church and that the Brigham-itc-3
hud largely departed from tho faith.
The Josophitee were incorporated by tha
United States in the year 1870, and are now
growing very fast, numbering about 25,000

Evolution of the Cheap Book.
As the days of mammoth daily papers ap
proached it began to be understood that a
hook could bo sold for ten or fif teon cents
providing enough of them were taken. Tho
Lakeside library was est ablished in Chicago,
and its issues of standard novels at very cheap
prices became widely known and appreciated.
This was followed by the Seaside library, pub
lished by George Munro. The Haniers swung
into line with the Franklin Square, aud were
followed by John Lovell & Co. with Lovell's
library. All of these libraries wero based
upon the same plan, the republication of for
eign worts in a very cueap rorm. the en
terprise hod two elements of weakness in it,
one inherent and tho other the result of com'
petition. To take the latter first, there was
a good profit in the business for one firm, but
as in order to make it pay hundreds of thou
sands of books had to be sold, the competi
tion divided the market too much.
Tho Lakeside died first. Then the Harpers
announced than the Franklin Square was to
be published occasionally only. It is under
stood that Munro has sold his library busi
ness to Lovell, leaving tho field practically
to him. But Mr. Lovell will find that tho
inherent elements of weakness will have an
effect upon him; he will not be able to get
books to standard. When oco remembers
chut it takes from six months to a year to
write a book, and that tho libraries were is
sued weekly or serai-weekly in some cases
daily it will be seen at once that it was only
question of time wheu publishers wouK
overtake authors. As these libraries bavA
from the first consisted of works written
abroad, upon which there was no copyright,
tho novels of England have been exhausted
Translations have been made from the
French and German until now there are no
more good books that is, books worth read
ing. Of course they are still being written,
but tho current supply will not keep the
libraries going. Current Literature.
Agility of the Salmou.
The gamey qualities of tho salmon causing
aim to rate so high with the fly fisherman
are hi3 strength and activity. Ono writer
says: "The salmon and sword fish are the
fastest swimmers of all forked tail fishes."
n, pubs bu gprrri at thirty miles as
hour. When ascending streams he averages
from fifteen to twenty-five miles a day, leap
ing water falls twelve feet high in his ad
vance. It used to be thought the fish made
their big jumps by bending double and sud
denly straightening out, tbe resistance of tbe
tail against the water sending him forward.
But now it is known be takes a short, sharp
run before bis jump. If the water at the bot
tom of a fall is not deep enough to permit
this be cannot jump, and leaves the river al
together, as nature leads them to the head
waters always to spawn. So fish ladders and
fish ways have been constructed in some
rivers otherwise impassable to them.
As soon as salmon get into fresh water in
the rivurs from the sea they have a frolic,
jumping and splashing in all directions.
Then again they will roll lazily around on
tbe surface of the water. But when booked
everything of tbe appearance of laziness van
ishes, and a twenty-five pound salmon at the
end of a line will give a man a battle royal.

One of the Latest Fads.
The latest fad with Detroit young people
is tbe good luck ling. Tbe idea originated
at Chautauqua this summer, where it caught
sach a hold that almost everybody, from one
end of tbe lake tq tbe other, either bad a ring
or two or was occupied in making one. Tbe
rings are worn on tbe little finger, and when
properly made they look very pretty. A
brand tew silver dime and a stout penknifa
are all that is required for the work. Every
thing is cut away but the milled rim, and
the insido is smoothed oft with emery paper
or a fine file. "It isnt an easy matter either,
to cut tbe center out of a dime," says tbe
pretty wearer of a half dozen little silver
rings. It requires both time and patience,
and the young man who does it for bis best
