The republican party has raised the
nation from bankruptcy to opulence, and
secured for our public credit the faith of
the financiil world. This was done
under protection, and Gen. Harrison
helped to do it.

Woikiugmen are studying the tariff
iuestion. This is quite enough. If
workingmen will simdly look into the

will soon be convinced that protection
is the right policy. This isn't theory.
It is experience.
Free traders say that one American can
do as much work in a day as two

ought to have twice as much for doing
The raw material of the cotton manu
facturer is absolutely free of duty, and,
comparatively speaking, it grows right
at the door of the factory. If the asser
tion of the free rader be truP, that free
raw material will enible the manufac
turer to capture the "world's market,"
then this country ought to be able to
flood Europe and South America with
cotton goods. And yet our exports of
this clas of commodities arc miserably
insignificant. What better chance would
the woolen manufacturers have of gain

stricken off wool ? None whatever, and
every free trader a sirglc remove alove

The only way in which the United States

ftcuie Ntv Found lodian Tribe.
The great table land of Matto Grosso,
in the western part of Brazil, is still one
the least known portions of South
America. When Pr. Claims and Dr. vou
!ori Sicincn penetrated it several years
u.jo. and followed the large Xingu river
from its head waters to the Ajaazon, they
lioated down about 1,000 miles before they
reached the known portion of the river.
They did not have time to adequately
study the strange and unheard of Indian
txibes they met amid these dense forests
and barren uplands, and for the purpose
f making further researches among them
Dr. von den Stelnen returned to the upper
Xingu last year. He visited the villages
of nine of these tribes, and in a recent
lecture in Rio de Janeiro he gave the in
teresting results of his studies.
There is hardly a corner of the earth
whose people have not had some inkling
of the great world beyond them. But
these primitive natives of the upper
Xingu had, apparently, never seen a scrap
of trade goods or beard that human beings
existed outside their little circle of
observation. They use no metal hnplo
laents, but fell trees with stone axes to
dear the ground for their plantations of
i ndian corn, cotton and tobacco Wearing
.- hell ornaments, they use hammers and
;ails of stone to perforate them. They
uako knives out of shells and the sharp
teeth of a certain fish, aud with these
ixr tools they carve their rudely orna
mented stools and weapons.
Dogs and fowls are found in all parts of
t lie Amazon valley that have been visited
!y traders, but these Xingu tribes have
never heard of them. Neither have they
any knowledge of the banana, sugar cane
and rice, with which natives of the
tropical zone are generally familiar. They
have not the slightest conception of a
(lod, but they believe they will live again
ufter death. Their most important myth
relates to the creation of the world,
which, in their view, consists wholly of
the head waters of the upper Xingu and
From the languages and pottery of all
out one of these tribes the explorer de
rived the idea that these isolated peoples
are allied to the original stock of the once
lowerful Carina, who journeyed from the
outh to the sea. One tribe differed so
greatly from all others that he was unable
to trace its relation to any other people.
These people are almost wholly isolated
even from each other, and their languages,
though of the same derivation, are so
dissimilar that the tribes cannot under
stand each other. Few people exist today
who are so primitive in their ideas and 60
low in the social scale as these new found
Indians of South America. New York

The long seven milo coast began. The
road wound down around horso-.hoo ctirven
and loops without number, and as it was
on tho east side of tho t-maller valley
which led down at right angles to tho
Rhine valley I bad to rido on tho outer
side of the roadway in order to be on the
right side. At first, in turning soine of
the sharp curves to the lc-lt whero I could
see nothing ahead but air and tho hills of
Switzerland twenty miles away, I slowed
up some, for tho road was vi:;itlo for only
twenty or-thirty feet ahead, and whero it
went to then I was totally ignorant, but
after riding a mile or two down over
roads so smooth that the running of tho
machine was scarcely audible, 1 let up
on the brako a little ami away 1 went
faster and faster.
One linger was sufHeieut on the brako
at Crst, but after a few miles that oih
began to et cramped and two lingers
were applied. Then the brake spoon
began to get hot, but still I could not s.-pi
tho foot of tho n-ountain. About half
way down tho water of tho icldno began
to show itself over the edge or' the road
as I came to those sharp turns to tho
left, and then I knew where the bottom
was. It actually seemed that, if I went
straight ahead, 1 should hind in tho river,
how many hundred feet' below my blurred
eyes could not clearly discover. Once I met
a team and yelled, but the oxen were on
their own side and I went by them with a
rush all right. Another time koiiio
children saw me coming and ran down
the sides of the mountain scared out of
their wits. Still I went like tho wimftL
over the same steep grade and .smooth '
road down from top to bottom, without
miohap, but with a feeling I never before
experienced in coasting that I was glad I
was at the bottom. Jiow long u took iv
to come down I do not
know, but 1 waiteWt
sso for the Iuglinli-
men. Bicvclist George li. Thavcr in Now
To Keep the Eyes Iicaul if;i!.
To have beautiful sightly eyes, we inu;-t
have strong, sound ones, and avoid all
causes, of harm. Never rend, write or
work with the light from a window iu
front of the eyes. Arti.-ans injo.ro their
sight past recovery by working at a bench
directly in front of a window, when they
should be placed with tl.o baek to it.
The light in front . fall.- into tho eye,
which contracts to lessen wlutt it cannot
bear, with tho invariable result of weak--ened
sight. Lamps, g-is jets and student
lamps are often placed bo near th-jLeal
as to heat the eyes injuriously. The sim
plest shade stops this by making a current
of air between itself and the lamp.
I quote from Dr. Jeffries' highly inter
esting pamphlet on '"Our Eyes and Our
Industries." Iio speaks very decidedly
on tho injury to the eyes of wood engrav
ers in cutting from photograph: o;i the
block, making the blurred and misty pict
ures too familiar iu papers und magazines.
The work is cheaper, but, oculists find,
most destructive to tho eyc3, and the bel ter
class of engravers either refuse nich
work or raise their prices nearly double.
The wear aud tear comes of looking con
stantly from the photograph to the orig
inal picture hung before it audeontinn; lly
changing tho focus of the eye. I am gl id
to know this has awakened "attention, for
I know that looking at the soft, blun y
wood cuts is very trying to sensitive eye...
So is the satiny, calendered paper whitu
certain publishers protest is accessary fo
fine impressions, although finer work ia .
done abroad upon dull paper. The giot-si
and glitter of much of the modern house
decoration injures tho eye by the broken
reflections it is forced to meet on ail Bide.
The varnished paint, tho metallic hnish,
of walla and fabrics, the breadth of iWii
glass and painted glass are simply dcstr.icJ
tive to crood sight. Thc-y may answer for
people who never read, like tLc Turks and
