, Hi: return to America or Mr. and
Mrs. Nicholas I.ongworth after their
honeymoon trip abroad gave to
Representative Henry S. noutctl,
Itcimbllcau, of Chicago, nn oppor
tunity to havo considerable fun nt
l no expenoo of the Democrats, It
Is known of course that ono groat
political party looks to Thomas Jef
ferson as tho apofitlo nnd prophet
of the Mmplo democratic life, and
knowing this, Mr. lloutell. who ap
parently had been reading somo
ancient records, tried his best to
undermine tho "simple llfo" pedestal upon which
Thomas Jefferson stands.
There were Fonie people apparently who thought
that Mrs. I.ongworth. who is ex-l'resldcnt Roose
velt's daughter, might return from her honeymoon
trip abroad, where sho was treated In n measure
like a royal personage. In a fiamo of mind In which
pride wan dominant ami that she might havo lost
some or her American simplicity. Representative
Boutell mado n speech which of course did not
havo Mrs. Longworth for Its v
central subject, but ho In
troduced 'matters by saying
that sho would return to
America, "not Princess
Alice, but tho sarao modest,
unassuming daughter of the
president that It was her
wont to bo."
Mrs. Longworth came In
to Mr. Boutoll'a speech only
88 nn incident of discourse,
tho Republican icpresenta
tive's main intention being
apparently to attempt to re
fute the statement made by
Representative Wheeler of
Kentucky that tho Republi
can party under present ad
ministration was introduc
ing "truculent sycophancy
and flunkcylsm" Into our
Intercourse with representa
tives of foreign powers.
The Chicago Republican looked at the Democ
racy's Mississippi chieftain (now a United States
senator), then turned his eyes to the then bud
chieftain. Champ Clark of Missouri, and said:
"I wish to read a few words of Thomas Jefferson."
The chieftain looked more than a bit startled.
"I read from the 'Complete Writings of Jeffer
son,' by Ford," went on Mr. Doutoll slowly. "It
appears from this letter that Adams was Just
about to go as a business agent of Jefferson to
London, and after giving him several commis
sions, he writes:
"'One further favor and I am done; to search
the Herald office for the arms of my family. I
have what I have been told wore the family
arms, but on what authority I know not. It is
possible there may be none. If so, I will with
your assistance become a purchaser, having
Stearne's word for It that a coat of arms may
be purchased as cheap as any other coat.'
"So here we have the founder of the Democratic
party JubI dabbling, as It were, In syncophancy
not very truculent as yet."
.Thero was no quick recovery on the port of
the Democratic members from this blow, which,
while directed fair at their Idol, hit them hard
In glancing. Finally, Mr. Sulzer, tho East side
itateBnian, recovered sufficiently to ask In what
year It wns that Jefferson had commissioned a
man to buy the coat of arms. On learning that
It was In the year 1771, Mr. Sulzor Bald, with anj
Intonation that showed ho bad found a grain of
comfort in tho thought, "That was Ave years
before the revolution."
Tho New York representative's consolation
morsel apparently was not big enough to go
round among his neighbors with an appreciable
hare of each. It was a bit hard to learn after
many years that tho man who wrote the immortal
document beginning with ringing words about
equality bad been trying to buy something which
would go to show that ho was a trifle "more equal"
than bis neighbors; nnd tho blow was like unto
that of a bludgeon, because It was, shown that the
.supposedly Impeccable one had more than inti
mated that a counterfeit coat was as good as
a genuine one if only It were nobly emblazoned.
Tho Republicans had a rare time of It over tho
Democratic discomfiture. When it comes to fun
the galleries are gloriously nonpartisan. The
humor of the thing was to tho people aloft well
worth the knocking of a prop from the third presi
dent's pinnacle. Things might not have been bo
altogether bad for the cause of Mr. Jefforson and
his house disciples If Mr. Boutell had been content
to stop, for everybody recognizes the weakness
that all human naturo evon that sternly simple
type has for crests and other family gewgaws.
"Yes," Bald tho Chicago man, "It was flvo years
beforo tho revolution. Now, Just before tho revolu
tion, on August 25, 1775, the groat founder of the
Democratic party, tho Introducer of 'truculent
sycophancy' Into our national administration,
wrote to John Randolph from Monticello urging
a reconciliation with Great Britain, and in that
letter ho uses this expression:
" 'I am sincerely ono of those who would rather
be in dependence on Qrcat Britain, properly lim
ited, than any other nation on earth, or than on
Tho last five words of this Jeffersonlan pro
nouncement It would seem, If language means
anything, point to a desire on the part of the
Virginian Democrat that the colonies should have

an ownorshlp cablo of kind connecting them with
ono of the over-tho-sea powers.
As Mr. Boutell put It: "It seems possible that,
having purchased his coat of arms, Jefferson
feared that on the declaration of Independence
aud tho establishment of a republican form of
government it would not be an available aBsot,
and so ho hopod that dependence would continue."
The memory of this speech dwells In congress.
It was Intentionally light, but It drove home the
lesson that frailties of a certain kind are not
confined to members of any political party.
When In the futuro an American citizen dies as
the result of eating adulterated food that has been
an article entering into Interstate commerce, a
coroner's Jury will be Justified in bringing In u
verdict of suicide. In order not to bo too hard on
tho deceased, the Jury may give the cause as
carelessness, but whichever of the twain tho ver
dict be, the "recently died" will be held responsi
ble. The pure-food bill whicn passed Congress is
a strong measure. Prolr to Its passage It was
tho causo of more misunderstandings, more sus
picions and of more abuse of men and measures
than was any other which congress thought It
worth whllo to consider.
Representative James R. Mann of Chicago
piloted tho bill through the house. Ho was ox
pounder and exhorter, and during the greater part
of four days ho held tho Interest of the seasoned
members as a school teacher holds the Interest of
wide-open-eyed children to whom tales of a hither
to unknown are told and It was tales of the
hitherto unknown that Mr. Mann told to 'tho
Washington-gathered children of a larger growth.
For amazement and curiosity, for Interest and
Indignation thero was no scene of the winter In
the big hall of congress like unto that enacted
while the Hydo Park representative set forth his
wares In bottle and in bc and gave his colleagues
full knowledge of tho indigestible and poisonous
stuff that the stomach of the American had been
taking to Its own all the years under tho sacred
names of food and medicine.
Tho house has upon most occasions the saving
grace of taking things In part humorously. A
Joke saves many a situation, assauges anger and
disarms the man whoso tongue under stress of
temper becomes a sharp weapon.
Thero were few JokeB during the discussion of
tho pure-food bill. The subject was as deadly
serious as were somo of the "food" products dis
played on tho Chicago representative's desk. Once
In a whllo tho gravity was relieved by a quip,
but as a matter of fact tho Joko of the thing was
of the past a huge Joke, If a grim one, cracked
by food preparers and mcdiclno manufacturers
at the expense of the stomachs and tho livers of
tho American peoplo,
Mr. Mann told of an American firm that had
been Importing rotten yjes, rotten eggs, which,
after treatment with boric acid, were sold to
candy-makers and cuke-bakers, Mr, Gaines of
Tennessee expressed gratitude that tho Imports
did not get Into eggnoggs. The laugh was faint.
Every member was thinking of tho candy and.
the cake and stomachs of the child multitude
The half has never been told in the public
prints of tho food frauds which Representative
Mann disclosed In the time -often extended
alloted to him to press this bill to a passage.
Some of his exhibits wore ground "coffee" mad
of roasted beans, oats, pilot bread, charcoal, red
slate, bark and date stones; cinnamon mads of
sawdust; wholn popper mode of tapioca nnd lamp
black; cocoa mado of walnut sholls nnd oxide,
nnd n thousand nnd ono other foods adulterated
In n thousand and ono ways.

without incurlng tho chargo of vlndlctlvonosn, that

To Repreontatlvo Henry T. Ralncy Is duo large

In tho land for which ho fought. It wns tho Illi
nois Democrnt who first took up tho matter of the
search for tho commodore's remains and who
started tho investigation which later mado General
Porter's work possible.
Mr. Ralnoy never has boen
given credit In full for his
share of the labor, for

Congress at tho outsot
did enough to dlscourago
ten men of ordinary en
ergy from carrying on tho
quost for anybody's boneii.
Mr. Rainey refused to be
gibed out of his purposo,
and although ho could not
Induco his colleagues to
tako him oltogether seri
ously, ho followed tho bent
of bis belter In other direc
tions nnd now Johu Paul

. The Illinois member In
troduced a resolution pro
viding for tho finding and
for tho removal to Amor
lea of the Scotch Bailor's remains. The resolution
called for nn appropriation of $10,000 to pay the
expenses. Then tho fun began. Tho mockors In
the house declared that the commodore was burled
deep In a cemetery under million-dollar business
J structures on the Ruo Grande Aux Belles or on
the Rue des Eclusos Saint Martin or on several
other rues which they could not pronounco.
.Congress In Its humor had the aid and Jocose

by French politeness, could accomplish the purpose

of separating Jones' bones with any certainty of
Identity from those of tho French sleopers In the
old comotery. One scoffer suggested with fine Irony
that there might bo a bit of tho original Scotch
skull left, nnd that Sidney Smith's rulo might bo
applied to make positive tho identification.
Mr. Rainey was undisturbed. He was not even
moved to surrender when suggestion was made that

It was two years on tho wuy, but tho last laugh
came, and It was Mr. Rainey who had It. His
colleagues made amend for their scoffing and their
scorning, and now another Jester of the past writes
belated word of contrition.
THE COLDEST PLACE ON EARTH
Whnt Is said to be tho coldest place on the globo
is tho region of Verkholcnsk, Siberia. . Hero Is a
convict station, but during most of the year no
guards aro needed to keep tho prisoners from run
ning away, for In the more severo portions of the
winter no living crcaturo can remain In tho open,
and during the three most severo months, when
the trmperaturo sometimes falls to 85 degrees be
low zero, no ono dares to venture out for moro
than a few moments at a time.
Ordinary steel tools will snap like' glass, and
unseasoned wood becomes almost as hard as
steel. When one breathes u powder like the very
finest snow falls at one's feet. It Is said that there
are less forms of Insect life hero than elsewhere
In the world, and some of thoso found aro not
found elsewhere, seemingly having been created
especially k Inhabit such a frigid region.
Somo of ihe signal-service officials declaro that
most of tho sovore cold waves that sweep acne
the North American continent have their origin In
Verkholensk. The wind blows u perfect gale almost
all tho time, and that discomfort, added to the low
temperature, would certainly make this a very un
pleasant place In which to spend the winter.

Ho began to rolgn when ho wnr
olght joaiH old. Like his grandfather
Munnssoh. ho must for sovornl yeais
havo been guided, and his kingdom
controlled by his mother or by prime
ministers. Tho worshipers of Jo
hovah must havo been In control itt
tho pnlace, tho wtso nnd religious
teachers of the true God and tho true
religion. So that for tho first nlxteon
years of his llfo tho young Joslnh must
havo been under good Influences, while
ho also would know of his fnthcr'u
tragic death, and his grandfather':!
sins, sufferings, and repentance. And
his ancestor, David, wns ever beforo
him as his Ideal, hlu hero, his saint.
About tho tlmo when Joslnh was
twenty years old, and In Uio twelfth
year of his reign, when ho had begun
his reforms, there canio an Invading
host from tho far cast like a cyclone,
an overwhelming scourge. Jeremiah
foretells them In vivid pictures. Hut
Herodotus tells us who they weio, tho
Scythians "from tho regions over Cau
casus, vast nameless hordes of men,
who Bwccplng past Assyria, un
checked, poured upon Palestine. Wo
enn realize tho event from our knowl
edge of tho Mongol and Turtar lnva
slons which In later centuries pursued
the snmo path southwards. Living In
the saddle, with no Infantry nor chari
ots to delay them, theso Contnurs
swept on with a speed of Invasion
hitherto unknown. In 630 they had
crossed tho Caucasus, by 620 they
wero on tho borders of Egypt.
Tho prophet, Jeremiah, describes In
plcturcsquo terms this Invasion. "Tho
lion Is como up from his thicket;"
"Tho destroyer of nations Is on his
way;" "Behold ho comcth as clouds,
and his chariot shall bo as tho whirl
wind;" "Their qulvor Is an open sop
tilchor, they nro all mighty men;"
"They aro cruel and have no mercy;
their volco roareth llko tho nea; and
thoy rido upon horses, sot In array
as men of war against thee."
It is easy to boo how this terrible
Invader, coming so near, Just as Jo
6lah was beginning his reforms, must
havo Interfered with his plans.
Joslah began his reformation In his
twelfth year, but the' Invasion of tho
Scythians soon after this beginning
lnterferrcd with tho work. Tho sav
age and cruel host en mo close to
Judah'a borders. Scattered bonds may
havo entered tho kingdom. Terror
reigned. Defenses must bo strength
