From the commitoo ! on llio Lnf- ayotto monument , we learn that within the next few dayH there will bo struck at the United States Mint in Philudolihin | the moat unique and significant coin issued in modern times It is tlio Infoyotto Dollar authorized by Congress in aid of the Lafayette Monument. Thia ooio , which is a legal teudor dollar , bears upon Hd face in bas- relief a double medallion of the heads of Washington and Lafayette mid upon its rovono a miniature reproduuliuu of the cquoftrian stat ue of Lafayette used for the menu ment. The inscription on the del lar explains its purpose ( struck in commemoration of Monument erect ed by school youth of United States to General Lif lyotto , Paris , Franco 1000) ) . The Lafayette Dol'er thus serves not only to aid the Memorial work but forms n new and beautiful tic between the two great republics of Europe and America , and therefore the coin must be regarded as an in ternational emblem. It constitute B a most desirable souvenir and mom. onto of the Children's Monument to the "Knight Liberty , " the Universi Exposition of LOOO at Paris , and the oponining of the twentieth con- tury. The limited number issued will make these coins extremely rare and in very great domind. For each IfiOO of our population there is a ratio of but ono Lafayette Dollar. The first coin to bo struck of the CO.OOO will be presented by the t. President oi the United States to the President ] of the French Rep ublio. Popular subscription0 for i coins will now be entered , < and lion- ored in the order received. The price fixed on them by the Commis sion in two dollars. All orders for coins to bo consid ered must bo accompanied by pay ment in full and bo in the hands of the Commission on or before DEO- EMBEll 15 ' Oft , on which dote the popular subscription closes , Drafts , currency or Money Orders will be accepted in payment. Drafts and Money Ordirs'muat bo made payab le to Edwin Potter , Treasurer of the Commission. The CommiEsiou reserves the right to limit the number of coins allotted to oachisubscriber. Students of schools and Colleges should combine their ordes in ono ( subscription and send if possible through a looal bauk.

St. Paul "Pioneer- Prtss. " The Boers still hold the edge on the English and from present in dications are in position to hold their advantages for some time yot. But if John Bull has the staying qualities of his American cousins U > this Bide of the water , the final irosuli will favor the English. But after thoffihal settlement is reached it is very doughtful whether either will have gained more than they could have gained by arbira- tion. The president oi Aguualdo'a congress has been captured and our men are close after Aguunaldo , .with a view of turning him over to tbe government for Christmas present. 1'lmt 'I'linnksglvliif , ' Procla mation. In the Newborry library , Chicago , there ! H a copy of the first Thanks- chiving proclamation in the United States. There wore earlier feasts as well as fastn , in fact , a harvest festival was held the year after the landing of the LPilgrims at Ply mouth , but this was tbo first ap pointed day named as a Thanks , giving day and act aside aa such by oivil authority. The procla mation in attested by the secretary of the council and bears the seal of the colony. Thanksgiving was in honor of the v'otorics of the colonies in the King Philip war. During the struggle with the Indiana , fasts had been ordered , but when the tide of war turned , and it approached a fiueceesful end , a dny of thanksgiv ing appeared to bj mon appro priate. The governor and magia- tratoa suggested the day of thanks giving and won over the oppo sition of the preachers , who wanted another fast. Petitions were sent in by Increase Mather and others , praying for a fast day , but the council on Juno 20 appointed June 20 , 1070. aa a day of thanksgiving The proclamation ia aa follows : At a Council Hold at Charles- twn , Juno the 20tu , 1070.

Prohibits the Use of Arsenic or Alum iu all Articles of Diet The law enacted by the Missouri legislature , a copy of which was recently published iu our columns , and prohibls tuo manufactures or sale of any article intended for food or to bo used in the prepara tion of lood , which contains alum , arsenic , emmonia , etc. , places tbtt state in the load in the matter of sanitary legislation. Laws restricting the use ] of alum in bread have been in force in England , Germany and Franco for many years. In this country , in Minnesota , Wiaoouson , Michigan , Ohio , Kentucky and several otlior statea , direct legislation in rotoronoe to the aalo of alum biking powders bus also been effected. In several of these states their sale prohibited unless they are pbanded to show that they contain alum , and in the District of Columbia , under the laws of Congress , the sale of bread containing alum has been made illegal. following are the names of some of the brands of biking powder sold in the vicinity which are shown by recent analysis to contain * alum. Housekeepers and grocers should cut this out and keep it for re ference : Unking Powdeii Containing .Alum : K , C Contains Alum. Manf. by Jaques Co. , Chicago. Manhattan Contains Alum.

These powderd are put up to the grocore , and his name put on the lable , especially as he can make an abnor mat profit on it. Many grocers , doubtless , dj not know that the powders they are pushing are alum powders the sale of which would bo a misdemeanor under the law re ferred to. It IB quite impossible to give the names of all the alum baking powders. They are constantly appearing in all sorts of disguises under dfferont names and all kindf of prices , oven as low as hvo ant ten cents a pound. They can be avoided , however , by the' hous- k' oper who will bear in mind that all baking powders sold at twenty five cents or less per pound are liable to contain alum , as pure cream of tartar powders cannot bo produceo , at anything like this price.

Some of the Traits Shown by lllm In His Family. "Gen. Grant as a Father" la the title of an Interesting sketch in the Youth's Companion. It Is by the general's ton , Frederick D. , and is well worth reading. Here is a part of it : I novcr heard my father say an unjust , cruel word , even to those who sought to in jure him. What was most impressed upon my mind during my youth , and afterward , was my father's qualities of truthfulness , loyalty and honor , his un selfishness and his charitableness to ward all. If an unkind word had been uttered or an uncharitable thought ex pressed in our homo circle , our great est care was to keep the fact from the knowledge of our father , because we realized that such expressions from one of his family would cause him deepest sorrow. From our earliest years we could not bear to have him think us unworthy. His children never feared him , as ho was far from being sterner or severe with us , but we respected him , loved him with deep affection , and wo dreaded to disappoint him. Gen. Grant was considered by his countrymen a great commander , firmly pushing through overwhelming obsta cles on to his goal ; he was known to his children to be a tender-hearted , In dulgent and most considerate parent , over willing to sacrifice his pleasure for the happiness of those about him , oven to the smallest and most unim portant member of the household. A ( stressed or troubled expression In the ace of ono near to him was sure to bo noticed , and called forth his sympa- hy. His was the character of a sim ple , unaffected Christian gentleman , and his descendants may well try to mltate him. In Gen. Grant's home wo cncw the gentle and just and chival rous nature which the public recog nized when ho gave orders at Vlcks- > urg and Appomattox that his own victorious soldiers should make no lomonstratlon of triumph over the do- eat of the opposing army. We , his amily , knew best of all that spirit of warm good will which caused him to say to Gen. Lee : "Lot your soldiers retain their horses and mules ; they will need themto cultivate their farms. " Lot us Giro Thanks. The issue of this numbei of the RICPUBLICAH occurs on the rooura oe of Thankgivmg day , which has become - come national in its absorvance. [ t ia an occasion which every ono can , if so constituted participate. No matter how poor in earthly goody , or health , they ( have reason to be thankful that their conditions are no worse. But moat people can re call , -takinga ] | retrospective view of their lives the past twelve months many aubatanial blessings of which they have boon recipients , for whichthey ] should bo thankful to the Great Giver of all good , There are the present blessings of life , health , friends , lovod-oncs , together with the bounties with which our stores , or graineries , or houses ae filled as well aa the great blessing enjoyed from a largo and inoroao ing buiness.

The crew of a British steamer have recently witnessed u remarkable sight wher steaming in the South Atlantic. The rare phenomena the sun dog which may not be seen once in a century , appeared in the sky one even ing at sunset. It was first seen by the captain , who noticed the sun set ting In the cast instead of the west , and was confirmed by the steersman , who reported another sun to port and two more in different directions. This marvelous sight of four suns in the sky gave the sailors a tremendous shock , as the sky was perfectly cloud less and the vision unexpected. Golden -Penny. Gloomy Outlook.
