WnOLE TEMPERANCE HER if ON
The following story is told of General
Harrison in connection with a public
"dinner given him od one occasion: "At
the close of the dinner one of the gentle
men drank his health. The general
pledged his toast by drinking water.
Another gentleman offered a toast ai d
said: 'General will you not favor me by
taking a glass of wine ?' The general,
in a very gentlemanly wy, begged to be
excused. He was again urged to join in
a glass of wine. This was too much. He
rose from his seat and said, in a most
dignified manner: 'Gentlemen, I have
twice refused to partake of tho wine cup.
I hope that will be sufficient. Though
you press the matter -ever so much, not
a drop shall pass my lips. I made a
resolve when I started in life' that 1
would avoid strong drink. That vow I
have never broken. I am one of a cIuas
of young men who graduated together.
Sixteen members of my class now fill
drunkards' graves and all from the per
nicious habit of wine drinking. I owe
my health, my happiness and prosperity
to that resolution.' " Zion's Herald.
JAPAN'S STEP FORWARD.
Today Japan is, in a theoretical sense
at least, a representative government.
The Mikado is still the ruler, but the
people will have a share, if only a slight
one, in the conduct of affairs. Up to the
beginning of the present week Japan whs
an absolute monarchy. The power of the
Mikado was supreme and unlimited in
legislative, executive and judicial mat
ters. Hereafter, however, his authority
will not be so rigid and unquestioned as
it has been in legislative concerns. The
government is now a limited monarchy,
in the same sense, although not in the
same degree, that the British, or even
the Italian or the. Spanish, monarchy is
limited. The change which has been
made, unlike lamost nil of the other aid
ranees ever made in despotisms, was r.
free concession of the soyereign. Indeed
th e Mikado, in his intelligent and per
sistent desire to be ntfit his people, in a
political way, has shown a liberality and
progressiyeness such as has not been dis
played by any other living monarch ex
ccpt Peter II. of Brazil.
Apparently the Mikado has taken the
German governmental system for a mod
el, so far as he has patterned after any
existing plan. For Europe this wr.uld
not be a particularly advanced political
scheme, but for Asia it is a big step for
ward. The most encouraging leature of
the matter is the fact that it is evidently
part of a systematic and careful y devised
plan on the part of the monarch to liber
alize his government and elevate the con
dition of the people. He is still a young
man, being less than 40 years of age, and
has been on the throne about twenty-one
years. One of his earliest official a ts
was the abolition of the feudal system in
his domain, and this wns followed by
other reforms leading up to the constitu
tion just granted. Japanese are the most
intelligent, alert and progressive of the
Asiatics. A goverinent of some sort has
existd among them, it is claimed, since
six or s?ven centuries before Christ, bat
the political advances made in the last
score of years have been greater than all
that preceded them, and the changes have
probably only just begun. Judged by
the progres of the past two decades, in
fact, he would be bold who would set
limits to the ' political reforms to be
wionght oat by the "Yankees of the !
Orient" before a quarter of the Coming
century is spent Globe Democrat
JAMES THE SECOND'S BODY.
An ICffbrt Mad to reaxrtrat the Mystery
That Surrounded IU Dor Lai.
Miss Strickland, when making re
searches at Paris and St. Germain for
ner lifo of Mary of Modena, was told
'by tho abbess (superior) of the Austin
nunnery that the Hepublicnns broke
open James IPs coffin, that they found
the limbs supple, that she believed
they had some superstitious reverence
for it, which, however, did not pre
vent their making a show of it and re
ceiving a sou or a franc from the
spectators, and for some reason the
corpse escaped destruction.
Piecing together this and other in
formation (see Miss Jane Strickland's
recent life of her sister), tho bio
grapher of English queens stated, on
the authority of "The Traditions of
Paris and St. Germain," that the Ja
cobin crowd of 1793 and 1791 were
seized with superstitious awe, that the
municipality took possession of the
hcarso and body, that people crowded
to see it from all parts of Paris, from a
uou to n franc was charged for admis
tioii, that miracles were whispered of,
that Ilobespierro oi"dcred tho body to
be buried, that this was not done, but
that it was carefully and ret'erently
preserved, that on the allies coming to
. Paris in 1814 the bodv was still above
ground, that George lV ordered it to
be carried in funeral procession to St.
Germain and that it was interred in
' Agnes Strickland, on afterward see
ing Pitzsimmons' account, cited it as a
corroboration; but it is really just the
reverse, for ho concludes -by saying:
"Where the body was thrown I never
heard. George IV tried all in his
jower to get tidings of tho body, but
noultl not." Where could the body
havalain from 1794 to 1814, or rather
till 1884, for there was no ceremony
whatever in tho former year, when,
indeed, St. Germain's church wa.' in a
ruinous state I Mrs. Fairbairn, the
superior of the Austin convent, could
peak only from hearsay, as she did
not enter tho institution until 1819,
and sho had not improbably been mis
led by Longueville Jones, whose visj$
for collecting epitaphs is still remem
bered. Miss Strickland was strangely off
her guard when she accepted Hearsay,
which it is so easy to test. &he had
had only to consult the pewspapers of
1824, or to read the St, Germain in
.scription, to see that there was no prp
cession of the body from Paris. In
deed, one can trace the slender foun
dation for almost every detail -of her
story. Tho exposure of the body for
nearly a whole day grew hi0 a J?0"
longed exhibition ; the money gjyen
by prisoners at the monastery for" a
sight of it grew into payments made
by a concourse pf peopie from all parts
of Paris; the miracles immediately
following on James' death grew ln&
miracle working in 1794, when belief
in the supernatural was at the lowest
ebb. There is every reason to suppose
that the body was flung into some
neighboring pit pr sewer. Assuredly
all traces of it had disappeared when
the terror ended. New York Star.
New Rapid Fire Cannon.
Information through military chan
nels indicate tho complete success of
the trial of tho new English Arm
strong C inch rapid firo gun. This gun
is a development of the Armstrong
4.72 inch rapid fire gun, which suc
ceeded in throwing in one minute and
forty seconds ten projectiles, each,
capable of piercing nine inches of iron.
The wonderful success of the latter
gun, "the rapid firing 36 pounder,"
gave tho British an advantage in
naval warfare which foreign officers
were quick to perceive. It was found
that the projectiles which could be
fired with such rapidity weighed no
less than 45 pounds, and hada veloc
ity of 2.073 feet seconds, and were
capable cf penetratin & ' nine inches of
iron ana two feet Pi ook ana teas.
The whole weight of tho gun is only
4,200 pounds. .
Notwithstanding the efficiency of
the --.72 inch gun, it was decided to
construct a 6 inch rapid fire gun on
the eame plan as the former. J. lie
question immediately arose, will a 6
men Armstrong resist the heat result
ing froni a fire of such rapidity? As
a result of the trial, it has been found
that the gun has 6tood intact the enor
mous pressure to wnicu it lias been
subjected, and, instead of 45 pound
projectiles, the British "now have a
gun which will throw with almost the
sanu" rapidity projectiles weighing
110 pounds with a penetration of 1BJ
inches cf iron and 4 feet of oak and
tea!:. The powder charge is nearly
42 iunds in weight, and the chamber

Zlio Ideal Woman of the Future.
"The- ideal' woman of tho future,"
says an eminent physician, "must be
a 'woman of grand and strong phy
sique. Bulwer says: 'Tho match for
beauty is a man, not a money cheat.'
Equally true is it that the match for
the ideal man, the coming Twentieth
century man, is a woman, not a bundle

Sho must cast off her slavery to

said that the divinity is mighty

wants, for how shall she give life who
knows not the principles of life. Last
and best of all, she must be grand in
that freedom and purity of soul which

XZr Son's Wife.
A keen eyed, wiry old lady, with a
determined expression upon ner coun
tenance and an aggressive air gener
ally, sat directly in front of me on a
western railroad train, writes a corre
spondent. We had just left a small,
dreary looking little town in Kansas,
when tho old lady turned around and
asked, "lne next stations
ain't it?" ' '
"Yes." I replied.
"I git off there," said the old lady,
and having begun her confidences,
"Yes, I'm going o
there to live
with my daughter Harriet that
we kin git along together."
"Indeed," I said, as sho evidently
expected me to say something,
V You see, I've been staying awhile out
in Ohio, with my son Hiram, but me
and his wife never could git along in
this world, never! Ain't it awful how
extravagant young folks are nowa
days? It wa'n tso when I was young?'
"The times are different," I said.
Ihats no excuse tor a woman
throw-in' away whole half loaves of
bread, is it?" she asked sharply, and
when I mado no reply, sho went on:
And mats just wliat my sons
wife, Ellen, did. Then sho uses a whole
egg cv'ry morning for clearju' coffee.

made it without any egg at all, and it

old lady persisted with her com
"Another thing; she takes good but
ter, at thirty cents a pound, and
spreads it on beefsteak after it's
cooked. Think of that! And she
makes her ginger bread out of half
sugar, instid of all molasses, which is
good enough for anybody It was just
waste, waste, waste in that house! X
expect to see tho whole family in the
poro house yit, and I told my son's
wife soev'ry day I was there."
"What did she say?"
"Not a word. Siie never minded
me, but kept right on. "So I left, and
if Harriet carries on like that, 1 11
leave her, too." Youth's Companion,
Method In Ills Madness.
One pf the most remarkable char
acters Cincinnati ever saw is dead. It
was Dr. Joseph Garretson, pf west
Eighth street. For sixty-two years of
his lire no never drank ft cup of coffee
nor sipped a Little tea. -For fifty years
of his life ho ate no meat. For twenty-six
years of his life ho never took
so much as a pinch of salt. He came
of English stock, and was born in that
county" of long lived people, York,
Pa., Feb. 27, 1808. His ideas wera
very simple, but on tho subject of diet
he believed strictly in a vegetarian
diet. Naturei he used to say, has sup
plied this food, and it is against nature
when a man eats meats. To those
who would eat meat, however, he in
sisted that it should be boiled. He
used to point to the Indians as proof
of this, claiming that they were never
sick unless, from wounds. He trusted
no cooks to prepare his food, but did
it himself. Vhen he went upon a
journey he took his food with' him,
only a few weeks before his death he
was in New York city, going the en
tire distance with his food. He claimed
that everything greasy was injuri
ous to the human system, and of r.1 1
things horrible was a piece pf meat
fried. Dyspepsia and all tho ghosts
and nightmares pf indigestion no at
tributed to frying. His only drink
during his long life was water, or
sometimes a lemonade. He was con
tinually experimenting on the sub-
'ect of diet, and attributed his long
ife entirely to his diet and habits.
Rattlesnakes as Food.
It was said of a strong political parti
zan that he would swallow rattlesnakes
if party interests demanded it. It is only
men of this sort who. without protest,
swallow the old fashioned pills. Sensible
