In New York, however, the saloons and
the Prohibitioni.-.ta together defeated

The naked recital of these facts
sufficiently explains the feeling of I'epuh
licans who cousider how narrowly this
combination of rum shops ami Prohi

victory for free trade. Many of the
third-party Prohibitionists are men who
lelieve in Protection. IJut they were
not more illogical in helping free
trade than in helping the candi

But the other voters who voted to pro

posing that they had numbered two
voters for cveiy saloon, there may have
been 0,000 to s.000 in Connecticut and

In spite of t!n?sj inconsistent forms of

its history. It can powerfully reinforce
itself by admitting three or four new
states prior to the next election. It is
gaining rapidly in the south, and by
wise measures can insure republican
victory hereafter in more than one
sontln-rn state. Those w ho imagine the
republican party has outlived its useful,
ness and was about to be sent to the
rubbish heap, may revise their impres

ttort of philosophy :i f ei t and shoe-s far
above the ordinary merchant.
''Americans," lie said, "pay more at
tention to tin ir feet than they used to.
This Ix'ing the case, the man who caters
to the comfort of the feet must make a
study of tho KJime. V. hen you and 1
were I oys we Injught shoes in which our
toes came out to the end of the shoe
right against the end. We also Ijought,
or eur lathe rs did, according to the price.
No intelligent dealcr in :hoes today wiil
ever w-il a customer a pair of shoes
against the end of which the toes will be
fori-ed. The bhoe of today that is, the
common sense shoe is always longer
than the fool. The (stylish shoe is long
anil narrow. No lady w ho has any re
gard for her comfort, to say nothing
about her pride, will ever wear anything
else than a long and narrow shoe. We
are now making a cheap shie on the same
principle. 1 suppese you know that
in England an American is generally
known by the kind of shoo he wears.
The English wear wide shoes men and
women alike. .Some folks think this is
dono because tho English do so much
more walking than wo Americans. That
is not it. It is habit. They don't take
the samo pains wilh their feet in the old
country that v.e elo over here. I do not
know of any nation that doo.s.
"Somebody asked me tho other day
what sizes were mostly worn in Chicago.
My answer rather surpriseil him. I said
os and 4's, and more 4's than 3's. lie
got olf the idiolie talk about Chicago
women's feet that you lind in newspajH is
of rival cities. The same thing is true of
every American city in this age of the
world. In some sections of the country
children used to can jii their bare feet
more than they do now. I should say
that with ladies a No. 4 is the most gen
erally worn I won't say e'alled for shoe
in the market. No. "'s, ladies' sizes, you
understand, are not much worn, although
called for frequently. That is anoiljiT
thing you hear a great deal about in a
funny way. I never deceive a customer
about his or her number if the rjuestion
is asked. But when a hidy comes in and
saystopnepf the young men that she
wants a No. 2, he looks at Iter foot, if lie
can elo so Without giving ollense, and
proceeds to fit her.
' "I must say for the intelligence of the
average woman that this sort of nonsense
is ?Ht indulged in p.o much now as for

TaeTerinite'ii Singular Work,
There are fteveraj specie'3 of the t-.r-mite,
some of which make those great
lent shaped mounds of which travelers
tell s:o much, and others building high
up in trees. Tho sort which is so etc
struetive to wood and books makes its
homo underground, and approaches the
object it intends to convert into fooel by
tunneling to jt, By this means it rcnelcrs
any attempt to watch for its pomingimll.
Usually it follows the grain of the wood
in its progress, but tliis is not always the
case, tho direction being determined by
expediency. A e hest which has not been
totally destroyed will show that tho in
sect ha3 gono'back and forth and up and
down, just as the nature cf tho wood or
its lluckness renders the most expedient.
Frequently the termite will perform a
most singular work in tho effort to make
iho best use of any wooelen structure
into which it has made its way. If, for
example, it has bored through the length
ef a pillar supporting a house, and finds
at tho top that there is wood winch it
would like for food, it first uses up the
wood of the pillar and then fills the hol
low shell thus createel with mud, packed
until it is as hard as concrete. Iho pil
lars of ono house taken down for re
building in St. Helena were founel to be
mere bhells of wood, compactly filled,
except for a tunnel through the length,

A Novel Swimming Dress.
A swimming drees, resembling a eli vers
dress, and made of double India rubber,
has, according to a foreign contemporary,
been aelopted in the German navy. On
the chest is a valve through which air is
blown into tho interior of the dress,
which covers the whole body and leaves
only the face free. To prevent the swim
mer from being too much tossed about
by the pea. the space round tho chest is
especially large. ' The bwimmer wears a
belt which dividers the elress into two
parts, to prevent a too great loss of air
if tho dress were torn about the legs, and
concequent ehfliculty hi swimming.
The swimmer wears shoes with leaden
soles to secure his equiiibrium, and for
his defense a dagger, which is fastened
to the girdle. The swimmers are to bo
employed for the blowing up of mines
and hostile craft, and aro provided with
a I ox cont aining an explosive charge,
which they have to fasten to the mine or
craft, andignitc. Before the explosion

Jaily, caress it and take it for its daily

dogs is only to le compared to the
ancient Egyptians' adoration of cats,
though I marvel much if these latter
ever put them in the placo of their chil
dren. But I conclude that this love in
the English is hereelitary. In tho lone
caves cf their Briton ancestors is there
not to le found a confused mingling of
the bones of human and animal life of
ages and ages ago? It is jiossihlo that in
those days they worshiped tho horse
and dog, us their descendants now do in
another sense, living with them and
