The farmer is entitled to full pro

The democracy would protect
neither. The republican party
would protect both.
No possible justification exiets
for the Springer measure. It aims
to undo all that the McKinley law
has already accomplished for the
woolen industry. In 1800 the
American people paid foreigners
$T3,808,814 for woolen fabrics. In
1891 they paid otily $34,010,543.
This represents an immense gain o
American industry, which the free
trader would wipe out at a single
stroke. American woolen goods
not only command a better home
market than they did a year and
a half ago, but they are cheaper
to-day than when the McKinley
bill is in the interest of foreigners
and against the interest of Ameri
cans. It should not become a law,

SPRINGER'S WOOL BILL.
Tlie purpose of the democrats to
make foreign wool free, 011 the
ground that it is "raw material," is
squarely opposed to the interest of
the agriculturist. To carry it out
would be to reduce the income of
every farmer whose sheep contri
buted to last year's American wool
product Jof 350,000,000 pounds. So
far as the farmers is concerned, the
wool he sends to market is not raw
material. It is a finished product
which represents his own labor, the
cost of his farmthe interest on that
and all of the expenses of running
his farm and making it pay a profit-
below zero c. as long as may be re
quired. The cooling is effected by
the evaporation of liquids, and is
divided into three stages, each with
its special apparatus. For the first
stage is used the mixture of sul
phurous and carbonic acids known
as "Pictet's fluid," which is con
densed at a pressure of about two
atmospheres in a spiral tube cooled
by water. Oxide of nitrogen laugh
ing gas is the liquid chosen for the
second stage. It is condensed at a
pressure of 10 or 12 atmospheres in
a iube kept at about 80 below zero
by the action of the first circuit
For the third stage air is employed,
and passes into a liquid state at a
pressure of 75 atmospheres when
the temperature is kept at 125 0 be
low zero by the other circuits. The
evarjoration of the liquehed air
gives a cold of about 2C3 below
zero. Absolute zero is placed at
273 below zero c, but Prof. Pictet
regards 255 0 below zero as about
the lowest attainable artificial
temperature. One of the effects of
great cold has been the conversion
of quicksilver into beautiful fern
like crystals. Glycerine also has
been crystalized; and cognac has
been given by freezing the peculiar
mellowness commonly attained
only by long keeping. The nlost
important result thus far, however,
has been the purification of chloro
form, the crystals that form in the
commercial chloroform at about
68 below zero being almost abso

Edmond Gros is the owner of a bull
terrier which is pronounced the great
est inebriate canine of his breed.
Gros is a medical student, and as
such he had gathered a number of
specimens and preserved them in alco

to an end some davs ago, and having
no further use for the specimens he
had the jars and their contents re

Sport, which is the name of the
drink-loving dog, smelled out the alco
hol and immediately proceeded to up
set the jars, thereby breaking them
and causing the spirits to form a pool,
which he lapped up. Gros' attention
was first calle-t to what had happened
by the peculiar antics of Sport. He
howled during half the night, which
was a strange contrast to his ordinary
food behavior, and when Gros went
own to see what was the matter he
found him jumping about in the most
unaccountable manner, snapping at
the floor and the air, and howling all

All these symptoms, as well as the
empty specimen jars, were indications
enough for the student to diagnose
his first case as one of delirium tremens.

"The first time I ever saw Samuel
Sullivan Cox, known as Sunset Cox
was in 1850." said 1 nomas Kuick to a
St. Louis Chronicle reporter.
"I was then superintendent of
bridges on the national turnpike in
Ohio and Cox was making a tour of
taverns on the road delivering political
"The turnpike in those days was the
great highway between the East and
the West. It was thronged night and
day with teams from every part of
Ohio, and country taverns, with big
wagon yards, were located ten miles
"Every night these taverns were
crowded with teamsters and travelers
and Cox spoke at every one of them,
beginning at the Indiana line and end
ing at the Pennsylvania border.
"Mr. Cox was a young slip of a fellow
with real dudish ways, Lut his speech
es were so inexpressibly funny that he
captured the hearts of the rough team
sters, who carried his fame to every
part of the state, and as long as he
lived they .were always his solid
"Ex-Governor Allen once made a
tour of those taverns and made friends
that stood by him for3'ears, and I have
no doubt but that that influence still
existed and aided in electing him gov
