Mr. Bok has succeeding in un

material by Henry Ward Beecher
which will shortly be published as
a series of articles in the Ladies'
Home Journal. The material is es
pecially valuable since it deals,
with a range of topics both timely
and will advance for the first time
in print, the great preacher's views
on a number of such interesting
questions as marriage, home gov
eminent, women in public aad pri
vate life, politics, etc. etc. Mr. Bok
has secured the co-operation of Mrs
Beecher and Professor Ellinwood,
Mr. Beecher's private reporter, in
the editing of ihe material.

cause it induces laboring men to
leave Europe and come to America

democratic remedy for emigration?
The republicans have a simpler way
They will regulate emigration by
statute and keep the wages of the

Democrats often ask: "Who has
heard of any manufacturer raising
the prices paid for labor?" Well,
here is an iustance in point re
ported by an eastern journal: "The
republican legislature of Massa
chusetts enacted a law limiting the
hours of labor for women in fac
tories and work-snops to fifty-eight
a week. Thereupon, without the
asking of the employes, the mill
managers et Fall Kiver, employing
23 ) people, voted to pay the same
wages for fifty-eight as for sixty
hours and raised piece-work 3g per
cent. Fa'l Elver is the largest cot
ton manulacturing town in this
country." Now let us hear from
the managers of the democratic
campaign about the rise in prices
of labor in England.
THE CURRENCY OF THE COUN
TRY. The first of July is a new year's
day with the general government,
financially speaking. It seems
lrom a statement for that date,
made by the treasury department,
that the circulation of the country
increased during the year $103,005,
7S3. This is a showing which
speaks well for our monetary sys
tem. The expansion is normal and
about keeps pace with the needs of
trade. The changes during the fis
cal year are shown by the following

It will be observed that the sup
ply of gold did not change much,
but of the two increased. The sup
ply of standard silver dollars de
creased nearly a million. Subsidi
ary silver increased over four mil
lion, which is an interesting fact.
These new dimes, quarters and
halves were needed for the conveni
ence of exchange. There was a
large increase in gold certificates,
also in silver certificates, but the
greatest of all in silver treasury
notes. The government has paid
out $93,031,637 under the silver bill
of 1SC0 in the purchase of silver
bullion, the payments being made
in new certificates, redeemable in
coin, the government being the
judge of whether the coin of re
demption shall be gold or silver.
The rate of currency expansion by
this agency is about fifty millions a
year, or two hundred millions for a
presidential term. If Grover Cleve
land had a chance he would stop
the purchase of silver and the con
sequent increase in the volume of
currency, while Harrison would
keep on expanding the currency.

After the rather unsatisfactory ex
perience of last season the district com
missioners have decided to experiment
further with the free bathing beach.
This time, however, there is to be no
risk of life, provided the plans of the
commissioners are successful. Last sea
son the beach was open to all comers,
but in the future none but experienced
swimmers will be allowed to enjoy the
privilege. With this end in view the
commissioners have, through their sec
retary, Dr. Tindall, addressed the fol
lowing communication to the superin
tendent of the beach:
"The commissioners direct me to no

to use the public bathing beach till

any one to use the beach unless satisfied

AValled Cities in India and China.
The first glimpso we get of an eastern
walled city unfolds at onco memories of
our childhood days, which have perhaps
never been awakened since, und the pic
tures of our childish books, which im
pressed themselves so vividly upon our
minds, are reproduced in the bright col
ors of old, when we are brought face to
face with the quaint battlements and
the dark gateways, with the accessories
of bright, burning sunshine and tur
baned figures and processions of camels
and the listless calm of the tropical land.
Such old cities are still to bo seen ia In

still peopled by the figures of the Biblical
Closely akin to them are those walled
towns standing on the canals of mid
China, passing through which, say at
the close of day, when every tower and
every roof stands out clearly cut against
the brilliant western sky and we are
challenged by a grotesque figure, armed
with a spear and probably wearing
armor, the illusion is complete, and for
the moment we find it hard to realize
that we are traveling at the end of the
Even in much changed Japan there

the French Eoyalists called him Henri

Strange Effects of Extreme Cold.
Dr. Moss, of the English polar expe
dition of 1875-7, among many other
things, tells of the strange effects of the
extreme cold upon the candles they
burned. The temperature was from 35
to 50 degs. below zero, and the doctor
says he was considerably discouraged
when upon looking at his candle he dis
covered that the flame "had all it could
do to keep warm." Ft was so cold that
the flame could not melt all of the tallow
of .the candle, but was forced to eat ita
way down, leaving a sort of Skeleton
candle standing. There was hea enough,
however, to melt odd shaped holes ia
the thin walls of tallow, the result be

burning on the inside and sending out
many streaks of light into the darkness.
