THE NEWS CONDENSED
Stevenson, of Illinois, Cleve
land's Running Mate.
LEADINU DEMOCRATS FEEL SOKE.
The Rocky Mountain News of Den
ver Cannot Stand the Nomina
tions and Bolts the Tick
ilon. Adlai E. Stevenson, of '111
nois, was chosen by the democrats
as a running mate for Cleveland.
The Rocky Mountain News, the
editor of which made a free silver
speech in the Chicago convention,
has bolted the ticket there iiominat
ed. It is the recognized leading
democratic paper of the state. Edi
torially it says this morning:
"The worst apprehensions of the
friends of free silver have been veri
fied in the nomination of Grover
Cleveland for the presidency by the
Chicago convention. Colorado and
the west have no more inveterate or
determined opponent and his nomi
nation at Chicago has effected no
change in the relationship iior di
minished to the extent of an atom
the disastrous consequences that
his financial policy would entail up
on the agricultural and mining in
dustries. . ,
The News has been a loyal and
consistent exponent of western in
terests for more than 'thirty years.
A crisis has now arrived when it is
forced to choose between a demo
cratic nominee for the office of pres
ident and the most vital industrial
interests of the Rocky mouutaiu re
gion. It conscientiously believes
that the said nomination was ef
fected by undemocratic influences
and that the nominee represents a
financial policy that antagonize."
the historic record of the democrat
ic party, the true intent of the na
tional constitution and thtj uniform
practice of the government for more
than eighty years.
In view of these facts and moved
by these convictions, the News un
hesitatingly elects to sustain the
people and the industries of the sec
tion to which it has been so long
wedded, and refuses to betray those
interested by supporting Grover
Cleveland for the presidency, thus
becoming a party to a financial con
spiracy the culmination of which
would involve certain and ruinous
disaster to all who are concerned in
silver mining, and would as surely
prove calamitous to the producing
population of the United States."
There is little doubt but that the
paper will support the people's
nominees. Leading democrats de
nouce the position of the paper.
Panic Narrowly Averted.
Just as the convention was about
to close there was a crash, and the
arc lights which had furnished the
illumination for the convention
were seen descending upon the
heads of the delegates. Something
had. given way above and -it ap
peared as it the numerous inter
ruptions which had so ornftiously
occurred at the hands of nature,
were about to be supplemented by
one great catastrophe which should
wipe out the whole national demo
cratic convention of 1892. Three
lights immediately over the New
York delegation came crashing
down upon the heads of the dele
gates. The globes were broken and
streams of white electricity shot
out from the carbon points. In a
twinkling everyone in the build
ing was on his feet, and almost
everyone was making tracks for
Delegates stumbled wildly over
one another and frantic yells of
fear were heard. It seemed for a
moment as if there was no possible
way put of a panic, which must
have resulted in the loss of hun
dreds of lives. Fortunately, how
ever, a number of cool heads among
the delegate's in the audience as
serted themselves and, aided by
the police and music by the band,
contrived to get the frightened peo

stated in early life his wish to become a

Number of People Sinee Adam.
Did you ever make a calculation of
the probable number of people that have
inhabited our globe since the beginning
of time? No doubt you will say that
such calculations involve a Ions of time,
and are after all barren of results. Rut
let us take a few minutes' time and ap
proximate, with a certain degree of
accuracy, the number of souls that have
been ushered into this wicked world
since the time when it was "not good for
Adam to be alone."
At the present time it is believed that
there are 1,400,000,000 human beings on
the globe; but let us suppose that there
has been but an average of 900,000.000
living at any one time since the crea
tion. Next, to give room for any iossille
doubt, we will put the average length
of life at fifty years. (It may have been
much longer than that 5,000 years age.
but has been much shorter for the last
1,000 years.) With the average length
of life as above, we have had two gen
erations of 900,000.000 each every cen
tury for the past 6,000 years.
Taking this for granted this globe has
had 60,627,843,237,073,206 human in
habitants since the beginning of time.
To even bury this vast number the
whole landed surface of the globe, every
inch of it, would have to be dug over 120
times' Philadelphia Press.
How a Chamelon Looks.
Upon a crimson cloth the chamelon
becomes almost crimson; move it upon
a gray surface and the bright tints will
quickly subside. But at night, whether
disturbed or not, it invariably assumes
its palest tints. Two which I caught in
the Cape Town garden, which were of a
very brilliant metallic green, were splen
didly decorated. On the back or sides,
sometimes saddlewise and sometimes
lengthwise, were slashes of red. The
markings vary in the individuals. The
crest and decorations on the head and
back are like fretwork, the whole body
and limbs are dotted with very fine
warts or tubercles like shagreen, and
when angry all these distinctive fea
tures are exaggerated, the gills and
crest are swelled, and the skin of the
chin is puffed out so as to show white
stripes, while the creature opens its
mouth wide, displaying the yellow,
fleshy interior, and closing its teeth on
your finger should you provoke it to do

Deaths in January.
It has often been noticed at the begin
ning of January the death is announced
of a number of prominent men. The
reason is probably found in the fact not
that great men are more prone to die in
January than at any other time of the
year, but that the weather in that month
is unsettled, and consequently hard on
the constitution alike of great and hum
ble. Great men are only human after
all, and a great man physically weak
ened by hard work or disease is just as
likely to die from a change of weather
as though he were a day laborer.
The mortality tables show that the
month of January and the first month
of exceedingly hot weather in the sum
mer are more fatal than any other time
of tile year, and the great must take
their chances with other people. St.
Labouchere's Narrow Escape.
Labouchere was in Mexico during the
rebellion, and he thought he might serve
humanity by secretly giving both bel
ligerents good advice. One night, as he
approached the tent of one of the two
generals, he heard the voices of these
rival pretenders in converse. Creeping
close to the canvas he listened, and dis
covered that they had agreed upon a
truce in order to hang him in the morn
ing as an example to both armies. In
the morning, however, this misunder
stood mutual friend had naturally dis

Tom Do Witt, Jack Ford and Ed Still

for two days and were nearly starved to
They had decided to honor some of
their Vassar friends with a visit, at the
time of the commencement, when the
college discipline is somewhat relaxed;
but a short stay in the place had con
vinced them that the fare of the Pough
kepsie boarding house was inadequate
to salisfy Murray Hill apetites.
So whon, after a morning drive, the
girls announced that they intended to
effectually silence the current feeble
sneer at the cooking abilities of fair col
legians by giving the party a lunch pre
pared by themselves, there was joy in
the hearts of tho men. At the word
"lunch" Tom looked at Ed and Ed look
ed at Tom, and Jack looked straight
into the face of the prettiest girl and
said most felicitously, "Oh, thank you!"
It was to bo served in one of the rooms
at 2 o'clock; "in the meantime they
would stroll about the grounds and get
up an appetite."
At last the lunch came. It was a
"pink" one. The table was artistically
and tastefully decorated. Big pink bows
and bunches of roses covered the cloth,
and elaborately painted dinner cards
directed the guests to their seats.
As course succeeded course the men
began to wonder where the substan
tials were coming in, and to realize that

And when as a finishing touch cuts
little packages of tutti frutti, cunninidy
tied up in pink ribbons, were passed
around on a silver plate, the men felt
unequal to further conversational effort.
A few hours after the feast Tom De
Witt remarked that it was time for
them to be starting, as they expected to
catch the 7:0 train for New York.
"Oh, you'd better stay over until th-

since we have been in this town!"
For a moment three girls stared
blankly at each other, and then the
young men gathered their hats and
canes together and, saying hurried "good
nights," sped, with horizontal coat tails,

How the Cobra Gives Warning.
The most dangerous reptiles of India
and Africa are the cobras. No snakes,
not even rattlesnakes, are more dreaded,
and with reason. As the rattlesnake
warns the ear by its significant "rattle,"
so the cobras warn the eye by the mode
in which they expand the upper part of
the body when irritated. This expan
sion is produced by a 6udden movement
of the ribs of that region of the body.
Usually they incline backward, but the
animaL when irritated, makes them
stand out at right angles to the body,
and so, of course, forces outward tho
skin which covers them. Thus the neck,
or part just behind the head, becomes
greatly expanded and flattened, as it
also does, though in a less degree, in the
Australian blacksnake. This expansion
is called a hood, and so the animals are
called hooded snakes. In some of them
there is on the back of the hood a dark
mark, something like a pair of spec
tacles, and they have therefore been
called spectacle snakes. Quarterly Re
view. II ow Hawthorne Wrote.
We never think of local color in con
nection with Hawthorne. Apparently
he didn't need to put it on. Perhaps he
would not have understood about it.
He might have thought that the coun
terpart of the literary term (local color)
applied socially would refer to the
women who paint, the term has such an
artificial sound. One has an idea of a
colored photograph; the local color is
not a part of the substance, but is im
posed. Hawthorne was not conscious of
any necessity of giving local color to his
creations. He wrote of that into which
he was born, and his creations, even
when they were in foreign settings,
glowed with that internal personality
which is never counterfeited by veneer

per's. Definition of a Journalist.
. "A man of literature compelled by
circumstances to be also a man of busi
ness." . That is the definition of a jour
nalist, given by Mr. Sala. It is a good
enough definition in its way, though it
cannot be considered as invariably ac
curate. There are a good many soi
disant journalists who are certainly not
"men of literature," and a good many
more, whose claim to the title of jour
nalist is unquestioned, who are certainly
not "men of business." London Globe.
