Providence went against
democrats in Rhode Island.
TlIE democrats who are inside
have no hope of electing Bryan
"LITTLE Rhody" is No. 1 in the list
of national republican victories for
TlIE democratic house is in favor
of free wool. That's about as far as
t will ever get.
Do THE rainbow chasers expect to
find a pot of gold or a pot of silver
at the end of the rainbow?
McKl.NLEY, Reed, Alger, Blaine,
Allison, Sherman or Harrison any
one of them can be elected it nomi
nated. The present indications
point to Harrison.
The republican convention hall at
Minneapolis has been completed,
and is in readiness for the nomina
tion of the ticket that is to sweep
the country next fall.
HILL brooks no foolishness in his
political followers. Failure to
"obey and no questions" is punish
able by immediate boycott from
either honor or patronage.
D. B. niLL (with an assumption of
p"ifive melancJloly and a steel-like
l.ier of the eye): "Now, if I had
o tly been able to get into Rhode Is-
to assist the democrats, how
different it might have been."
WHEN David Boss Hill issues his
ultimatum to the democrats in con
vention assembled at Chicago they
will immediately crawl down off
the fence and vociferously declare
that Senator Hill is the greatest
The business outlook as given by
Dun's and Bradstreet's reviews does
not bear out Brother Sherman's
Journal in the statement that poor
trade and not the McKinley law is
the cause of the present low prices
of the necessaries of life.
The reason all the democratic
presidential candidates and their
friends proclaim that Cleveland is
their second choice is simply that
they are cunying favor wtth His
Obesity and want his votes when
they leave the claimant wallowing
in his own fat.
What explanation or excuse have
northern democrats to make for the
flaunting of the "bloody shirt" in
congress by Patterson of Tennessee,
Bankhead of Alabama, and Turner
of Georgia? What possible provo
cation had they? What republican
said a word to provoke their action?
The game of the anti-Bryan dem
ocrats is to let the young man elo
quent open his mouth and step into
it this fall. That will lay him on
the shelf and he will not be in the
way two years from now. The only
hope of the democrats carrying this
district is in an off year and on a
The Chicago Herald has burned
the bridges behind it since leaving
the Cleveland democracy.' It says:
"It is not seriously claimed in any
quarter that Mr. Cleveland can
cariy New YorK Only madmen
will profess that the democratic
paity can elect a president next
November without New York.
That is the situation in absolute
simplicity." And if the Herald had
stated the whole truth it would
have continued "and no other can
didate nominated by the democrats
can carry New York this fall. This
is a republican yea"."
Tri K Cleveland democrat wlio was
defeated in Indiana for the guber
natorial i emulation Hwallovvcd his
wrath and bitterness together and
answered in the language of the
man he claimed to so cordially hate,
"I am a democrat." Of course he'll
support the ticket, lie didn't know
Gray was loaded when he pulled
the Cleveland trigger.
TilK Nebraska farmers could not
be blamed for favoring a law to en
hance the price of farm products 30
or 40 per cetit above the market
price, but why they favor such a

which cannot fail to give us a silver
tandard hence a fluctuating and
cheap dollar, remains to be satis
actoril' explained. Beatrice Re
The monthly reports of the secre
tary of the treasuty have the elTect
ot making the bourbon calamity
howlers froth at the mouth every

of the spring trade and the pros

IT is really too bad that Billini
Silver Bryan should be so soon
done for. His frequent repetition
of that "great speech" in Connecti
cut and elsewhere started the
Washington newspaper corres
pondents to poking fun at him as a
twenty-four hour hero a man with
one speech for any and all occa
sions. Then he came to Omaha
and heroically performed his "pain
ful duty" of putting himself for
ward to be sat down upon for the
good of the party. Then he goes
back to Washington and dips his
oar in Mr. Hill's Rockwell-Nyes
elction case and the New York
senator-boss boxes his ears and
orders the democrats to pay no at
tention to oratorical upstarts from
the west who rant about courage
and duty, and the democrats mind
Mr. Hill as usual.

been subject to violent attacks of
inflammitory rheumatism which
generally lasted about two months,
On the first of this month I was at

HEARING A SHELL SCREAM.
A Ilicleou Soimil That Trlen tli Nervoi
of I lit N-w Soldier.
The talk turned uixju i;ernonal cour
age in a conversation I hsul the other
day with an aid-ilo-cauip of Generrl
Alexander nays. The veteran, who had
the name of lein the most daring aid
on Hays' staff, said: "You ask me how
I felt when I first smelled powder, so to
6jeak. Well, after the lapse of all thettj
years I'm almost ashamed to tell you. I
was panic stricken, scared out of my
senses, my courage oozed out of me in
an instant, and a small boy conld have
captured me without trouble. This aw
ful experience came after I had been
alout a year in the army. The regi
ment of infantry in which I was was pre
paring to go into e;nni. We were a few
miles outside of -Yorktown, which was
in the possession of the Confederates,
but none of us, not even our officers,
realized the proximity of the enemy.
There were some cattle with the army,
and some how or other some of my com
rades and I were part of the crowd that
drove the beeves to the place where they
were to be slaughtered.
We formed a circle, a sort of hull
ring, and fell to skylarking and firing
our pistols at the cattle as they ran
hither and thither. It was all laughter
and shouting. Suddenly, without the
slightest warning, a sound that we had
never heard before rose above the clamor.
It was a sort of whirring howl, lasting a
few seconds only, but long enough to
strike terror into our hearts. The men
who had been as gay and noisy as school
boys a minute before were dumb. 1
don't remember how they behaved. My
own affairs kept me busy. I felt as if
niy hoots were nailed to the ground.
They wouldn't move, neither would my
legs in fact I had lost control of my
body. I was perfectly limp and my
knees sagged out.
"That was the first strange sound, as
of some hideous, deadly bird flying over
head. I hardly realized, mind you, that
the enemy was shelling us. All I knew
for sure was that somehow my life,
which I had enjoyed so much a minute
before, was in danger. I wanted to run,
but my legs wouldn't obey me. Two
shells passed over me before I could
shake off the paralysis. Then I ran as I
never ran before or since, with a profes
sional sprinter's speed, to the shelter of
the woods from which our regiment had
only just emerged. A second terror
seized me as I reached the first scatter
ing trees. I had selected one, a big fel
low, as my refuge, and when I reached
it three other men who were crouched
behind it pushed me violently away,
saying there wasn't room for more.
Shells were still in the air, and with ter
ror I pursued my flight. When at last 1
fell exhausted upon the ground beyond
the range of the enemy's artillery, I al
most lost consciousness for awhile.
"Nobody was killed by those shell3.
but the Rebs' must have laughed to see
us run, and laughed louder yet when
our cattle ran into their lines as they
did. I felt more or less uncomfortable
always in going into battle afterward,
but never again lost my nerve as I did
at my fire baptism before Yorktown."
Why We Have Leap Tears.
Why is it that there have to be leap
years that all our years are not of the
same length? It arises from the fact
that the year does not consist of ao ex
act number of days. The length of the
day and that of the year are the meas
ures of the motions of the earth. The
globe we live on moves in two ways. It
turns itself around like a spinning top,
and at the same time it goes steadily
forward like a bullet shot from a gun.
It turns itself once completely around
in twenty-four of our hours, as ehown hy
the clock; this amount of time we call a
day. Its forward or onward motion
carries it around the sun in a path that
is nearly a circle; the time it takes to go
completely around we call a year. The
first motion gives us day and night fol
lowing each other in turn (the word
"day" here having now a different
meaning namely, not twenty-four
hours, hut the time of daylight.
The second motion gives us days (that
is, periods of daylight) growing gradual
ly longer and then gradually shorter,
one end of the earth turning more to
ward the sun for half the time and the
other end for the other half; and this
brings us summer and winter and the
seasons. Now the length of the year is
found to be nearly 365 times the length
of the day of twenty-four hours; that is,
the year is 365 days long and nearly six
hours more. It is these six hours that
give us our leap years, and it is in the
"nearly" that we find the reason for
1900 not being one of their number.
Rev. George Mc Arthur in St. Nicholas.
Cripples at the Capital.
Strangers in the capital express much
surprise at the number of cripples to be
seen here, and offer various explanations
of the sight. The majority of maimed
citizens are office holders, who were crip
pled during the late war. The form in
which they are mostly injured is the loss
of an arm, of tener the left one, as obser
vation shows. Many have parted with a
leg, and the suppliers of substitutes in
willow,' cork or rubber in Washington
aver that this is one of the best markets
in the country for their profession; Be
sides these injuries received through
violence, there are scores of people in
the government service who are afflicted
with natural deformities. They are to
be found particularly in the treasury de
partment. Kate Field's Washington,

"Man wants but little here below,
Nor wants that little long."
It was true then and just as true to day, and fits or case exactly
