The women's clubs, of which this
com. try has two hundred, are sound
on the question of non-alcoholic
stimulation and brain poisons gen
erally. The Nineteenth Century
club of Memphis, Tenn., with one
hundred members, elegant rooms,
and all that goes to make a first
rate institution of the sort, recently
entertained Joe Jefferson, the Victor,
and Joel Chandler Harris, the dia
lectician in a new sense. Some
thought there should be punch,
but Mrs. Watson, the president, said
NO, and the club stood by her.
Indianapolis has .a council of
women including the representa
tives of forty-nine local organiza
tions. . They work for better sanita
tion, cleaner streets and education

interesting to see this bright woman
hobnobbing with 'the president of
the Art institute in the common
interest of the council.
The Baptist Union Theological
Seminary at Morgan Park, 111., has
made the study of the temperance
question a subdivision of the re
quited work in the department of
ethics. The students are now study
ing the relation of the christian to
politics. This is a new departure,
and the temperance people have ex
pressed their wisli that it might be
come universal in all theological
schools. . "
Some of our honored leaders ask
"What would become of the prohi
bition part' if it should head its
ticket with the name that stands
first on the ticket of the people's
party in' the pending presidential
campaign?" The answer is not far
to seek: The prohibition (home
protection, reform, independent
whig, Columbian, or some better
name) party would remain in full
for;e, with its autonomy complete,
its platform, its committees, nation
al, stale and local, and its constitu
ency, as we believe largely to be in
creased this year. But if the other
reform party should nominate, in
Omaha July jh, as there is reason
to believe it will, a man thoroughly-
committed to our principles of pro
hibition and woman's enfranchise
ment, why not put his name on our
ticket and thus mass the reform
vote of the country? Meanwhile at
our own convention, we shall, as a
matter of course, nominate a
complete ticket, but the lack of lead
ing candidates this 3-ear renders it
practicable to have an understand
ing that if such a coudidate would
give place to him rather than retain
ac empty honor of holdiag on,
with a divided vote among reform
ers. If the question is asked: "Why
not let the people's party take our
candidate instead of we theirs?"
Our answer is, "because that party
would not do this," and if thetques
tion then occur, ''why would it not?,!
we must in all candor reply, "Be
cause it is not so well schooled as
ours; it is younger and less way
wise; it is not made up of veterans,
like ours, and is less skilled in pa
triotic strategy than ours is or
ought to be."
All of which is humbly offered for
what it may be worth; with unal
terable loyalty to what our clans
and chieftains mav see fit to do in
Cincinnati June 29th.
The new excise law in the state of
New York practically' pives more
privileges to the saloon business
than it has ever before enjoyed. The
liquor capitalist is given absolute
power and can take out as many li
censes and open as many saloons
as he desires, employing men to
run them. It is said that Gov. Flow
er, of New York, has presented the
pen with which he signed this mi
quitous bill to the president of the
wine, beer and liquor dealers' as
sociation as a trophy. The Nation

the sentiment of all right thinking
people when it says: "If it had

The usually apparently endless ftrciim
of wagons and carriages, two wliei-lrrs,

wide awake citizen was seated- liesido a

awake citizen relieved his mind by t his
"I never can understand the women
and the horsey men how they get along
together. Several things are common
to most men who are what I call ad
dicted to the horse. They either wear
the most peculiar and pronounced hats
and coats that attract attention from
afar, or they pay no heed at all to dre.-s
and look shabby even thongh they are
rich. Next, they are rough in speech
and often profane. Then again they
are so fond of what is called 'talking
horse' that many of them seem to warm
up on no other topic. But last of all,
they are all fond of women. That is no
new discovery of mine. I suspect that,
though women were men's first compan
ions, the horse has been coupled with
woman in man's admiration ever since
the quadrnied attained sufficient devel
opment to create the race of horsey men,
and it has long been a rule that the men
who love horses are also especially fond
of women. But what I can't understand
is what fun the ladies get out of the sit
uation. "I sit here in the park on every fine
day and study the case. The horsey men
do not talk to the women beside them.
They are the most tiresome companions
in the world. They never, as a rule,
know anything about the scenery they
are passing through. They see and en
joy nothing but the horse they are driv
ing. They sit bent up on their seats
with a rapt or a stolid expression of
face watching the animal they drive.
Whether there is a magnetic tingle in
the reins, such as we fishermen feel in
the pole that is tugged by a trout, I can
"Either that or the mere delight of
watching the rise and fall of the horse's
back as it warms to its work suffices to
satisfy the man, and there he sits, silent,
and engrossed about as admirable a
companion to the woman by his side as
a mummy or a statue, but that is not
all. He has taken the precaution to put
on big goggles to protect his eyes from
dust and flying stones and clots of dirt.
She cannot so disfigure herself, and
therefore has to hold her head down and
strain the rim of her hat to make it help
protect her face. Sometimes she has all
she can do to keep her hat from blowinj'
away. What fun any woman gets out
of such a companionship is more than 1
"But," said the wide awake man. "I
was once speaking to a woman of this
view- of the case, and she plunged me
deeper into the mystery. 'A man with
a horse has a tremendous advantage
over those who have not got horses in
gaining favor with j'oung girls,' said
she; 'a horse will cover many deficiencies
in a man, and a girl will take him and
drop a dozen better fellows.' 'Why? I
asked, 'are women so fond of horses?'
'Well,' she replied, 'they like men who
own horses; such men are not so numer
ous as those who don't.' " Is ew York
A Fly That Kills riornei.
All white men who visit regions in
Africa infested by the tsetse fly have
much to say about it. There is now
evidence that the tsetse is moving grad
ually to more northern regions, and the
cause ia supposed to be that South
Africa is depleted of its large game,
much of which is moving northward to
get away from hunters, and the tsetse
fly is going with it.
The insect is only a little larger than
the ordinary house fly, and it resembles
the honey bee. Its sting is hardly as
annoying as that of the mosquito, but
near the base of the proboscis is a little
bag which contains its poison. It lives
on the blood of animals, and only a few
species are fatally affected by its bite.
Cattle, horses and dogs, however, can
not live when bitten by the tsetse fly.
Natives who herd cattle and travelers
who depend on horses and oxen must
avoid the fly regions or lose their stock.
For human beings its bite has no serious
consequences. Pittsburg Dispatch.

The Parsees are sun worshipers, and
it is an interesting sight to see throngs
of them on the shore of the bay as the

begins. Their religious practices are

Good Dentistry by a Coir.
An Oak Hill (Litchfield) man had an
aching tooth out in a novel manner the
other day. He was. removing a poke
from a cow, when the animal threw up
her head, striking the bow pin which he
held in his hand against one of the
lower front teeth, knocking it out. It
happened to be the one that had been
aching. Winthrop (Conn.) Banner.

A Leaky Sausage Apparatus.
A little lady walked into a butcher
chop and asked for two pounds of beef
steak. When it had been weighed she
told the butcher to put it in the mincing
machine and chop it up so that she could
make meat balls out of it for dinner.
The meat expert, quite an ordinary
looking man, entirely unsuited to be tho
hero of a story like this, followed the
instructions, minced the meat and hand
ed it in a paper to the customer. Then
he turned in his matter of fact way to
attend to a man new to housekeeping
who was inquiring if he had any nice
mutton steak, and if so how much it
was a yard.
The little lady looked at the minced
meat and asked the butcher to weigli it
again. He did so, and there was jut
"There!" said the little lady indig
nantly. "Your sausage machine has
stolen a quarter of a pound of my steak.
I've suspected that machine for a long
time. You've got to make it good."
"I will not," retorted the butcher.
"It's a case of natural wear and tear.
Maybe some of the weight of the steak
has vanished in the process to which it
has been subjected, but there's two
pounds of notmshment there."
"The machine either leaks or there's a
secret trap that steals my steak," the
little lady insisted. "1 won't take the
meat till it weighs two pounds."
And she didn't. New York Herald.
The Saltest of Salt Lakes.
A lake with a salt roof isn't frozen
salt, and it isn't underground. On the
contrary, this remarkable lake may be
seen at any time during the year, fully
exposed, being even at its best when the
sun is shining directly upon it. This
wonderful body of water is one of the
saltest of the salt lakes, and is situated
near Obdorsk, Siberia. The lake is nine
miles wide and seventeen long, and
within the memory of man was not en
tirely roofed over by the salt deposit.
Originally evaporation played the most
prominent part in coating the lake over
with salt, but at the present time the
salt springs which surround it are add
ing fast to the thickness of the crust.
In the long ago rapid evaporation of
the lake's waters left great salt crystals
floating on the surface. In course of
time these caked together. . Thus the
waters were finally entirely covered. In
18T8 the lake found an underground out
let into the River Obi, which lowered
its surface about three feet. The salt
crust was so thick, however, that it re
tained its old level, and now presents
the curious spectacle of a salt roofed
lake. The salt coat increases six inches
in thickness every j-ear. The many is
lands with which the lake is studded are
said to act as braces and to help keep
the arched salt crust in position. St.
