E|[t> mul the Home Market.
Those who clamor for the markets of
the world forget that the principle
which gives to the people of the United
States the markets of the world free
must give to the people of the world
the markets of the United States free.
This can be better illustrated by the
6ingle agricultural product of egg, than
in any other way.
Eggs were upon the free list until
1890, when the McKinley bill went
into operation. From 1883 to follow
ing table will show the number of eggs
imported into the United states, with
the value thereof for each of the ten
In 1889 the importations amounted to
16.000. 009 dozen, for which foreigh
farmers were paid $2,420,090, or an
average of 15 cents for each dozen of
foreign eggs so purchased. For the
eight years preceding the McKinley
law. namely from 1883 to 1891 inclu
sive, the sum total paid by American
people for the eggs shipped to us from
foreign farmers amounted to $19,947,
717, being enough money to build the
capitol of the United States, the white
house, with all the adornments of their
grounds. Now let us try and show to
the American farmer that this market
for nearly S20,000,000 worth of eggs is
taken from him while he is attempting,
through the theories of free trade to
aid the markets of somebody else out
side of the United States.
Else there should be some cavil about
where these eggs come from, attention
is called to the fact that the official
custom house reports for 1889 show
that Belgium sent 215,OOOdozen; China,
two thousand miles across the great
Pacific, sent 126,300 dozen, and Den
mark, Germany, England, Scotland
all add something to the imports of
this product of the farm. Nova Scotia
and New Brunswick sent us three and
one-half million dozen; Canada nearly
12.000. 000 dozen, and Hong Kong,
Italy and Mexico all sent us many
thousand dozen each. The greatest
number of these were received at Buf
falo Creek custom house, New York,
5,700,000 dozen.
The imposition of the duty of 5c per
dozen by the McKinley act of 1800 had
the direct effect of reducing the im
portations and saving to the American
producers $2,000,000 a year, which our
farmers might claim as clear profit.
The whole product imported under the
operation of the McKinley law is less
than the imports for an}- one year for
ten years preceding.
The Wilson bill proposed to take this
$2,000,000 a year out of the pocket* of
our farmers and give the trade back to
the foreigners by admitting eggs free.
What is true of the product of eggs is
true of the product of the farm in gen
Our people do not understand the
enormous savings and profits which
accrue to American agriculture are the
direct result of our system of American
tariff. If you were to talk to the ordi
nary farmer today and tell him that
the eggs laid in China and Japan are to
be brought by the hundred thousand
dozen across the great Pacific and from
Europe across the great Atlantic to en
ter our great sea-coast markets and
compete with the eggs raised on the
farm in the United States, he would
tell you at once that you were either
an idiot or a fool, but when the records
of our custom houses are laid bare and
the exact importations are shown, then
the people try to find an apology for
their ignorance of these great princi
ples which underlie the principle of
protection in agriculture.
Better keep the McKinley law.
Transportation of Wool.
The transportation of wool has not
been explained fully. The rate by rail
on scoured wool is three times first
class. Merino wool, in which we are
interested, is 70 per cent grease and
dirt. Consequently it takes 3% pounds
of that kind of wool as you take it from
the sheep to make 1 pound of scoured
wool. The freight on scoured wool
from Arizona, New Mexico, Idaho or
Montana would be about 9 cents a
pound, while by steamer the regula
tions as to classification d# not apply,
particularly where rates are demoral
ized and freight scarce.
You can ship scoured wool from the
seaports of Australia, the Argentine, or
the Cape of Good Hope for three-fourths
of 1 cent per pound, a difference of 50
per oemt on the wool in the grease. I
mention, for the serious consideration
of the senate, the fact that there is a
difference of 9 cents a pound between
scoured wool produced in the far-off
western stares and that from the col
onies controlled by England.
The rates from the western portion
of our country referred to in the letter
which the senator has read are un
doubtedly from Cheyenne or some
where close to what is known in rail
road parlance as the Missouri river line,
a common point. The rate on grease
wool from Montana, Idaho and Oregon
to Boston runs from $1.90 to 82.40 a
hundred pounds.
I am interested in this matter suffi
ciently to know. From the eastern
portion of Montana the rate is 81.90 a
hundred pounds, and from the eastern
portion of Idaho and Oregon it is about
$2.20, and in the west of those states it
runs about 82.40 a hundred pounds.
Then when you get over on the Pacific
coast the rate, I am advised, decreases
to about 1 cent a pound, but there is no
wool grown on the .coast which you
ean ship: it is the product of .the inte
rior. You hate to ship by rail to the
seaboard, and that will cost you, per
haps, from 75 oents to 81.50 a hundred
pounds. tVater competition makes the
rate from the Pacific coast to New York
from 25 to 37 cents a hundred pounds,
and to London from 37 to 50 cents a
hundred pounds
I will further state that the rate from
Melbourne given by the authority the
senator from New Hampshire has
' quoted is certainly on scorned wool, be
cause on wool in the grease the rate is
only about 50 cents to London. It eer
taily must be scoured wool, which
would coat us 9 cents per pound from
the west and southwestern states.—

The Money Question—Who Shall Solve
This Problem.
One of the most popular and promi
nent newspaper correspondents in the
national capital (a democrat), who rep
resents one of the leading democratic
papers of the United States, may be
quoted as saying:
“The financial question grows in im
portance every day. The democrats
have had their opportunity lor one year
and a half. They have shown their
total inability to handle the question of
national finance, of the settlement of
the question of currency and coinage,
so that national interests will not be
jeopardized. The republican party is
just as sure to bring forward the proper
measure and crystalize it into law. as
they in the past were able to accom
plish such emergency measures when
the country was on the eve of bank
ruptcy and national stability depended
upon prompt, action.
“The day of opportunity is near at
hand for the republicans. They are
already shaping themselves for the
issue and we may confidently expect
before another year has passed to finci
a measure reduced to the form of a
statute, by these same republicans, to
be presented to a democratic executive,
from which he cannot withhold his sig
“As a democrat. I regret that my
party has not used its opportunity, but
national interests demand such action
at once.”
We are under obligations to such
thoughtful democrats as the one re
ferred to in the foregoing statement.
He is not alone in his opinions. The
thoughtful business democrat of the
United States today is in happy accord
and agreement with the correspondent
in his opinions concerning the solution
of our difficulties in the near future.
We say to the people, one thing only
is needed. Give the republicans an
opportunity and all that our democratic
friend has said will be accomplished.
Elect a republican congress in 18'J4.
Representative Martin, at the re
quest of Secretary Hoke Smith, has in
troduced a bill in the house which im
poses a fine of 3500 upon any pensioner
"who knowingly or willfully shall
make, or cause to be made, or assist in
the making, or present or cause to be
presented, at any pension agency, any
power of attorney or paper required as
a voucher in drawing a pension, and
which paper bears a date subsequent to
that on which it was actually signed
and executed.” This means that if a
pensioner who desires to get his money
at the earliest possible date after it is
due shall take his voucher to a notary
public, say two days before the date of
payment set forth therein, and have
them certified as being executed on the
fourth day of the month of payment,
the date of payment, wheD they are re
ally signed two days before, will be
fined 3500.
Would it not be well to add to the
foregoing an amendment providing
that no member of congress shall
draw his check against his salary until
after the same has been certified to as
being due, under a like penalty.
More congressmen draw upon their
salaries before they have earned them
than there are old soldiers who happen
to have certified two or three days be
fore the time of payment, to the fact
that they are alive. As this is the only
point Hr. Martin wishes to prove, let
us treat all alike.
Business and Politics.
It is quite often said that all business
is determined by political results.
However true this may be regarding
the action of many people, the replies
to tariff inquiries, as published by the
United States senate, show that some
men, neither democrats nor republicans
in politics, will shape their ballots in
the future without reference to former
party affiliation.
The following is from page 18, Bulle
tin No. 6:
Reply of Litchfield Brick and Tile
works of Litchfield, 111., manufactur
ers of brick and tyle. Established in
1881. Capital invested, 875,000.
Reduction on duty on goods must be
met by cutting labor.
We employ from GO to 100, all men,
and pay from 81.35 to S3.50 per day.
They work ten hours per day.
Selling prices have decreased from 25
to 35 per cent.
Let the present law alone and all will
be well. 1 never was a party man;
have thrown a great many votes away
for the temperance cause, but I tell
you now this tariff question is so plain,
in my opinion, that my vote will be
given for tariff no matter what name
is at the head of the ticket. The suf
fering we see every day on the street
makes one's heart ache. When we see
the thought of the Wilson bill shutting
up all factories how can it help the
present trouble to pass the bill? There
are a few factories running here. The
men that got 81.50 to 83 one or two
years ago are now getting TO cents to
81.25. Isow this I know to be a fact.
Tariff Postponement.
T'i is rumored that a movement is now
being agitated among the democratic
senators for a postponement of the time
w-hen the present tariff law shall go
into effect, until the first day of Janu
ary, 1895. This is made possible by the
concession already made by the demo
crats to the sugar trust, which post
pones the time for the sugar schedule
to go into effect.
In other words, the postponement of
the repeal of the sugar bounty for one
year, gives an enormous advantage to
the sugar trust as against consumers,
and rather than repudiate the agree
ment made with the sugar trust, it is
now proposed to postpone the whole
bill in its operation. If these industry
destroyers could be induced to insert
one word before the clause, “intended
to postpone until January 1st,” the
t democratic party would have rendered
| the greatest service in its history to the
people of this country; namely, the
word “indefinitely.” For an indefinite
postponement of the whole question is
the surest means of reviving times.
Glass Workers and the Tariff.
From the reply of Woodbury Glass
Works, of Woodbury, X. J.« manufac
tures of green and amber bottles. (Es
tablished in 1881. Capital invested,
We are democrats; have always been
such; but if the Wilson bill becomes a
law and reduces the duty on bottles,
and allows the duty to still remain upon
soda ash. the republican majority in this
district will be greater at the next elec
tion than it has ever been before
The Wilson bill, in onr opinion, is
turning good democrats into republi
cans to protect themselves. We can
not compete with the labor of Europe,
but give us free raw material and a
reasonable tariff upon the manufac
tured article, and we can pay onr pres
ent rate of wages, for we can produce
with the American workman more
goods than the foreign workman can in
the same number of hours

An Heroic Little Maid.
By the way of preface to the recita
tion of his poem, "The Veterans of
the South,” at the Birmingham Con
federate reunion. Henry Clay Fair
man, editor of the Sunny South, re
lated the following thrilling story as
having been vouched for by General
X. B. Forrest himself:
"My authority,” said the speaker,
“is Colonel John Goode of Virginia,
who related it to me and two others
at Richmond with the remark that
nobody ever heard the general repeat
the incident without heart thrills and
watery eyes.”
Forrest (as the story goes) was glow
ing under the conception of one of
those bold and unexpected enterprises
which immortalized him as a knight
of the saddle and a cavalry captain of
the first class.
Xight was upon him and a river
was before him.
The blow must be struck at once or
the opportunity of surprising the
enemy would be lost.
At the head of the eager and de
voted columns, he stopped at the door
of a log cabin, and to a poor woman
who appeared in answer to his call,
he said:
“My good woman, I want to ford
the river right away.”
“You can’t do it,” she answered,
“it’s up.”
A slender young girl came to the
door and said:
“I know where you can cross.”
The mother frowned and interrupted:
“No he can't,child! The river's ‘up’
I tell you, and it’s dangerous! Dan
Forrest laughed at the strange
word and the faces of his followers
reflected his invincible resolve.
The girl looked bravely at the gen
eral, and replied firmly:
“Mother, of course it’s dangerous!
But I know where he can get over!”
“Madam,” said the commander, “I
am General Forrest. Let your daugh
ter go with me. I’ll send her back
safe and sound.”
The child rushed forward impetiuous
ly, and the anxious mother yielded.
“General, I'll ride behind you, ’’cried
the girl, and strong arms lifted her
to her place, and the column pressed
forward through the dark swamp
under the guidance of the womanlike
little maid.
By paths she led them a mile or two
down the river, and at length pointed
out the place where the perilous at
tempt must be made, if made at all.
Ordering his men to halt, Forrest
rode in to test the ford.
The stream was rocky, roaring and
turbulent, and when the horseman
was near the middle he was fired
upon by Federal pickets from the op
posite banks; and before the general
could realize her purpose, the girl had
risen to her feet on the horse and
sprung in front of him!
“General!” she cried, clinging to his
neck, "let me stay in front! If one of
us must die, let me die! The South
cannot spare you!”—Birmingham Age
Zotof, the Czar's Dwarf.
In 1710, Zotof and his royal master
arranged a wedding between two
dwarfs. This was celebrated at St.
Petersburg with great show and pa
rade. Zotof, as a high official, was
head and front of the performance.
It took a long time to prepare for this
great event. Invitations to the wed
ding were sent out several months be
fore the day appointed for the cere
mony, and all the courtiers and am
bassadors were bidden to the marri
age of this tiny man and woman. All
the dwarfs living within two hundred
miles of the capital were commanded
to be present. The bride and groom
rode on an elephant under a canopy;
some of the midgets followed on
camels, or rode in sledges carved in
the shape of various animals. Many
of the vehicles contained a dozen
dwarfs at a time. Some of these
small people did not like the idea of
being bidden or commanded in this
way- Of course the procession of
dwarfs was followed to the city by a
laughing mob, and the pygmies ob
jected to being made sport of; but
Peter’s word was law, and he punished
the disobedient ones by making them
wait at the banquet on those who
were doeile.
Seventy dwarfs sat down to table,
besides the tiny bride and bridegroom,
who were richly adorned in the height
of the prevailing Bussian mode.
Zotof took care that everything pro
vided for this marriage should be of
suitable size. A low table was set
with small dishes, glasses, plates, and
other articles, all arranged according
to the size of the guests. The
dwarfs we are told, contended with
much pride and gravity as to which
should be first, but it was finally set
tled that the smallest should take
the lead; and then there arose dis
putes,'as none of them would admit
he was smaller than the others.
The czar, who was present, interfered,
order was restored, and the banqnet
proceeded. Dancing followed. The
bridegroom, who was thirty-eight
inches high, opened the ball with a
minuet. The company soon followed
the example of the groom, and en
tered into the dancing with great
spirit, and, after all their trouble, be
came very gay and had a good time
As has been before remarked, Pete
was very fond of the pygmy tribe,
and at the funeral of one who had
long been attached to his court.twen
ty-four male and twenty-four female
dwarfs walked in procession, followed
by the emperor in person and his min
isters and guards. I never heard of
his being cruel to a dwarf, although
he frequently made sport of them, and
his lcve for practical joking was so
great that even Zotof did not always
escape.—Mary Shears Roberts in St.
Do Animaln Think?
Mrs. Mouseawary had a grjat many
children; at the time of which I write
no less than six were living on the
same farm with her, and every one of
them was black, like herself. They
were so large then that she had
ceased to treat them as kittens; in
deed, they were quite as big as she
was, but they had not forgotten that
she was their mother and would not
allow her to be insulted with impu
This is how it happened. One day
Mrs. Mouseawary had a choice bit of
meat, which she was eating with
relish when she was espied by Sport,
an American setter. Generally the
dogs and cats on the farm lived at
peace with one another, and when
two or three cats were together
Sport, being somewhat of a coward,
was especially careful not to give
them a chance to use their claws on
him. But he was also, I regret to
say, somewhat of a sneak, and now,
perceiving that pussy was alone and
unprotected, he did not hesitate to
charge upon her and procure the
dainty for himself.
What did Mouseawary do? She was
not strong enough to assert her rights
by herself, but she went straight to
those six black kittens of liers and
told them all about it. Cat language
evidently admits of explaining a ease
very clearly, for pussy was not only
able to tell her children how slid
had been wronged, but ako to point
out to them just which of the white
dogs it was that stole her lunch.
The dogs went to their kennels to
be fed every evening at 0, and Sport
was in the habit of repairing thither
about fifteen minutes before that
time. To reach his kennel it was nec
essary that he should pass through a
gate beside which grew a pine tree.
The cats had evidently observed all
this, for a little time before the ac
customed time of Mr. Sport’s advent
they climbed up the pine tree and hid
themselves among the branches at a
convenient height from the ground
and lay in wait.
It was not long -before tlie culprit
came along as usual, little dreaming
of the punishment in store for him.
As he passed under the tree the cats
with one accord jump'd to the ground
and surrounded him, and so terrific
was their onslaught that their victim
found it impossible to escape, and
could only crouch to the ground aDd
yelp for mercy.
It was well for Sport that the gar
dener came running to his assistance,
otherwise such a terrible use did his
six black enemies make of their claws
that he would have had no eyes and
very little hair left to boast of.—Phil
adelphia Times.
The Enchanted Spiral.
Make a small spiral of very fine iron
wire and coat it slightly with oil.
Place this coil carefully in a basin of
water and it will float on the surface.
Take a straw or glass tube and im
merse the lower end for a few inches
in a glass containing soap suds. Be
fore removing the tube place the in
dex fingers over its upper end so that
some drops of the suds by the air pres
sure will remain in it.
Hold this tube over the center of
the coil, and by quickly removing and
replacing the index finger allow a
drop of suds to fall upon the water
The spiral will immediately make
several revolutions in a most mysteri
ous manner.
The audience should have its atten
tion attracted to the fact that the
tube does not come anywhere near
the spiral and that there is no force
exercised to move it.
Another drop of the suds in the
same manner will produce a repeti
tion of the peculiar action on the part
of the wire.
The action of the spiral wire is due
to the fact that the addition of a drop
of soap suds somewhat modifies the
surface water so as to alter a force
known as “superficial tension.-’ The
science of this change, however, is
rather too deep to permit of explana
tion here.
The Doll Doctor.
An odd interloper in the very heart
of the German quarter is a repareir of
French dolls. His shop is littered
with the papier maclfe parts of dolls,
with heads, arms, legs and trunks of
all sizes and shapes. The mangled
remains, so to speak, are thrown care
lessly into open boxes, where, with
their flesh tints, they make a grew
some aisplay. The repairer will un
do the ravages of time or supply mem
bers reft from hapless dolls by reck
less little owners. He knows all
about the internal mechanism of the
most lifelike doll, and can restore
suppleness to eyelids suddenly grown
rigid, and supply the lost squeak of
the doll that no longer responds to a
squeeze. The man is evidently out of
place, and he speaks regretfully of
the West side, as though that were
the true home of his soul and his del
icate art.—New York Sun.

Absolutely pure
Unshod Horses.
In Mexico, Peru, Brazil and else
where, unshod horses are daily worked
over roads of all kinds, carrying heavy
packs from the interior down to the coast,
the journey to and fro being often extend
ed to several hundred miles, and they
never wear out their hoofs. The roads
are neither softer nor smoother than
those of England and Ireland. On the
wilds of Exmoor and Dartmoor, as also
in the Orkneys and on the Welsh hills,
and in many parts of Continental Eu
rope, horses run unshod over rocks,
through ravines, and up and down pre
cipitous ridges, yet they never sutler
from contracted feet, or from corns or
cracks, until they become civilized and
have been shod. Differences in the
quality of the soil, be it hard or soft,
stony or sandy, smooth and slippery,
are of comparatively little importance
to the horse whose feet are as nature
made them. The unshod horse can deal
successfully with all roads. Iu the re
treat of the French army from Moscow,
the horses lost all their shoes Indore
they reached Vistula; yet they found
their way to France over hard, rough
and frozen ground. The natural sole of
the horse’s toot is almost impenetrable.
It is so hard and strong as to protect the
sensible sole from all barm. And all
horses’ feet exposed to hard objects are
made harder by the contact, provided
only that the sole is not pared.—Sir
