An Air Bas; for Coat Miner.
A lately invented air bag has been
given a practical test in the deep
anthracite coal mines of Pennsylvania,
and has proved a succoss. The ap
paratus consists of an air bag, an
appliance to hold the nose shut and
a battery and small inrandescent
lamp. The air bag is made of stout
canvas, worn on the back and fasten
ed under the arm. From the top of
the bag a rubber hose runs to the
wearer's mouth. The air is inhaled
from the bag and expelled through
the nostrils. The battery is strapped
about the person, aad the lamp is
pinned to the coat. After a big ex
plosion, when it is dangerous to enter
u mine owing to the rapid collection
of fire-damp, rescuers can be fitted
out with the air bags and enter the
pit without any ill effects.

This Is a business administration
and a business congress. It has been
only two weeks since the meeting of
the house of representatives, which is
controlled by the Republican party, and
in that time has been introduced, dis
cussed and passed a new tariff bill,
which will bring increased and suffi
cient revenue to the government in
place of the shortages of the present
inefficient Wilson law. This has been
quick work. The bill now goes into
the hands o( the senate. There it will
be considered in. committee and then
in the senate, and it is hoped passed
and signed by the president in time to
begin its operation by July 1, the first
day of the fiscal year.
Japan Shocks the Free SUverites.
Reports from Japan show that she is
determined to "crucify" her people
"upon a cross of gold." She has adopt
ed the gold standard despite the de
nials of the silver people. Those who
express surprise that Japan is not go
ing to throw any of her silver upon the
markets of the world.even if she adopts
a gold standard, are evidently net fa
miliar with the history of the growth
of silver currency in the world. The
mere adoption of the gold standard has
not decreased the silver currency at
all. In the United States, for instance,
the per capita circulation of silver in
1873 before the adoption of the gold
standard was 15 cents, while in 1895,
after 21 years of gold standard, k was
Large Oatpat of Silver.
Silver miners and mine ownerswhile
they want of course to get as big a

demand for silver. Silver mine owners
who have been here this week report
that their mines are not only still run
ning, but turning out unusually large
quantities of the white metal, and that

The greatest sufferer under the new
Dingley law will be the sugar trust.
Its framers were wise enough to avoid
the criticism and the scandal which
attached to the Wilson bill and no man

that the present bill is framed in the
interests of the trusts.
A Farmer's Tariff.
The New York Press characterizes
the Dingley bill as the "first farmers'
tariff." "The Republican party," it
adds, "has already placed the factory
beside the field, and thus given the
field the home market for its products,
and now proposes to open the markets
of other parts of the world to the field

ocratic paper recently edited by Wil

which have been received here
show that it is rejoiced at the pros
pective improvement of the agricultur
al industries of its state under McKin
ley protection. Quoting in commen
datory term3 the recent utterances of
the Republican secretary of agriculture
it says: "Nebraska has taken into her
feed yards since October last more than
five hundred thousand sheep to be fin
ished for the mutton markets of the
world. The state of Nebraska can
safely he set down as the best district
of the country in the United States for
the mutton sheep industry in all its
combined iequirements. Nebraska is
certain to become a popular.prosperous
mutton growing and mutton feeding
state." All this, be it remembered,
the World-Herald promises under the
new plans of the Republican adminis
tration, which is giving its earliest at
tention to a protective tariff as the
chief aid to the sheep industry of the
Increased Railroad Construction.
McKinley prosperity is making itself
apparent in many industries, but in
none more prominently than in that
of railroad construction. The "Rail
way Age," a conservative journal, es
timates that the railway construction
of the United States in 1S97 will be 17,
500 miles, which, by the way, is more
than twice as much as was accom
plished during President Cleveland's
entire term. If this estimate is real
ized, the railway construction of the
United States in 1897 will exceed that
of any period in the past decade.
Good Outlook for Farmers.
The farmers of the United States
are likely to have an increased market
for their productions at an early date.
The "reciprocity features of the Diugley
bill are expected to open a good many
markets which are now closed to our
agricultural products. In addition to
that it is expected to give to the United
States such special advantages over
other countries in certain markets .as
to give our farmers practically a mon
opoly of the trade in those parts of
the world. The average exportation of
ferm products during the past five
years has been 621 millions per annum,
of which amount 243 milllons,or nearly
57 per cent, has gone to Great Britain,
all other parts of the world taking but
43 per cent of our exports. This shows
the possibilities open to the farmers
in the matter of making for themselves
as good a market in other parts of the
world as they already have in Great
Britain. , .
Coaaaaeadatloa for the Xew Secretary.
Secretary Wilson's new plans for
an intelligent distribution of seeds to
the farmers of the country and a di
versification of industries is meeting
with universal commendation. Dem
ocratic as well as Republican papers
approve it in unmeasured terms. The
Atlanta Journal, owned by ex-secretary
of the interior Hoke Smitb, comments
favorably upon the new secretary's new
plans in regard to the farmers, and
numerous other Democratic papers join
in the commendation of Secretary Wil
Will Retara to the Old System.
The Republicans of the house of rep
resentatives are going to try and get
back to the old system of placing the
appropriation bills in the hands of one
committee. The free trade Democ
racy adopted the pres-eat system by
which the bills are distributed to a
half dozen committees, and the result
has been the enormous increase in ap
propriations which the nation wit
nessed with astonishment in the past
few years. Tha

would be a failure. In all the matter
which Mr. Wilson has presented in the
way of an attack upon the Dingley bill,
he has not been able to successfully de

its failure. This is a subject which he

A Cheerlafr Record.
The record of the' past week is
cheering. The number of works that
have resumed business is greater than
in any week since the last of Novem
ber. It is true that in many cases
contracts have been secured at unduly
low prices, and that therefore the rate
of wages is not as high as it was in
1892; but there is "bread for the eat
er," and this of itself is an improve
ment. The first step forward must be
a resumption of work; wages will rise
as the demand for labor increases. It
is not likely that we can return quick
ly to the prosperity that the nation en
joyed four years ago; it ha3 taken fbur
years to destroy; reconstruction can
not be accomplished in as many
months. After the new tariff law has
been in operation for a yeir we may

President and Press.
President McKinley is the first of
our chief magistrates to give distinct
recognition to the press as an import
ant factor in our national life. Always
ready to receive the representatives of
the press, he has now made a strik
ing departure in the recognition of that
force. This he has done by inviting
the dress representatives in Washing
ton to call upon him in a body. Of
course the representatives went, and of
course they found the same old friend
they had known as a representative
in congress, as the governor of his
state, as a candidate for his party nom
ination, as his party's .nominee for
president, and last as the president
elect. The relations between William
MeKinleyand the representatives of
the press have always been cordial, in
some cases close. He is quoted as say
ing that from the time he entered on
his presidential campaign up to the
present he has never hesitated to talk
confidentially with newspaper men, and
in but one case has his confidence been
betrayed. Wheeling Intelligencer.

they may be, in a general sense, but
not one-hundredth part.as important as
is this problem which is exclusively
theirs. Foreign missions, the ballot,
the higher education of women, good
government, the amelioration of the
poor it will be well enough for women
to labor for all these causes when their
own more immediate problems are set

more important at present than any of
these. Other problems are general in
their effects: this one strikes at the
very heart of the American home. We
do not begin to realize how intimately
associated is- this problem with our
happiness. It concerns every man, wo
man and child. But true charity be

a few of our kitchens who need civiliz

much as do the natives of India's coral

woman's work in foreign missionary
societies, good government clubs, or
charity organizations of whatever sort.
But I do say this: that scores of wo
men are employing efforts in those di

the solution of matters nearer home.
Women can solve this domestic prob

"Punishments of Bygone Days," in the

A Memphis woman observed that her
husband, when "questioned, always
promptly replied that he had mailed
her letters and it occurred to her that
he remembered too promptly. In or
der, therefore, to test his ..veracity, she
asked him a few days ago: "Did you
mail my letter, Jim?"
"Oh, yes," he answered at once, with
out taking his eye from the paper he
"You are sure you mailed it?" she
said, smiling rather curiously at him.
"Of course I did," he answered, look
"Oh, no, you didn't," said she. "I
know you didn't."
"I'd like to know how you can tell
whether I did or not," he said.
"Easy enough," she replied, with a
triumphant smile. "I never gave yoj

Tho surplus wheat of Kansas is
found to be superior to corn as a stock
food. Nearly one-sixth of the wheat
crop of 1893 was used as feed for farm
animals. That crop has become a
very- important factor in the grain
feeding of all classes of stock there.

to our readers the recent discovery
la East India cf .the Kava-Kava shrub,
which has proved a most powerful
remedy for diseases of the kidneys,
rheumatism, or other ailments caused
by uric acid in tho blood. The cures
wrought by this new remedy are indeed
most-remarkable. Many who have suff
ered from the most severe forms of the
disease, have been completely cured In
from twenty to forty days by the
Kava-Kava shrub. In the New York
Weekly World of Sept. 10th, the testi
mony of Itev. W. B. Moore, D. D., of
Washington. D. C, was given, describ
ing his years of suffering from Kidney
disease and Rheumatism, and his rapid
cure by Alkavis. Rev. John H. Wat
son of Sunset, Texas, a minister of tho
gospel of thirty years service, was
struck down at his post of duty by
Kidney disease. After hovering be
tween lifo and death for two months,
and all his doctors having failed, he
took Alkavis, and was completely re
, stored to health and strength and is
fulfilling his duties as minister of the
gospel. Mr. R. C. Wood, a prominent
attorney of Lowell, Indiana, was cur

Alkavis. Mr. Wood describes himself
as being in constant misery, often com
pelled to rise ten times during the
night on account of weakness of the
bladder. He was treated by all his
home physicians without the least
benefit and finally completely cured In
a few weeks by Alkavis. The testi
mony is undoubted and really wonder

The lata Hoary de Mille, who eel
lahorated with David Belaaeo ia a
atuaber of plays, need to tell.taia
story, says tho Sua: "I once had aa
opportunity, ia a play Dave aal I
had written, to make use of the third
verse of Psalm xciv., 'Lord, how Jon?
shall the wicked, how long shall tha
wioked triumph? The actor who
had this to speak came to ine at re
hearsal, one day, and ebjectod to tho
line, which he said ha considersd
very weak. Ho concluded his objec
tions by asking if I was 'stuck' oa
tho line. I said I rather liked tho
line, but had no personal interest ia
it, as in this instanco I was only aa
adapter, tho lino being David's.
David's, eh? exclaimed the actor;

one could spot that for some of Dave

The- superstition of the Hindoo dis
played itself in a strange fashion not
long ago. Some fishermen at Kidder
pore, on tho Hooghly, had captured
a crocodile, and being unable to kill
it. were compelling it to accompany
tbem to the nearest polico station
w"ro "running it in," as we say for
tho sake of the reward usually
offered for such creatures. On tha
way a native gentleman met them,
and persuaded them, for a bribe to
allow the animal to return to the
river. In doing this foolish action
he argued that, having shown kind
ness to it, the crooodilo would not
attack him' and his family when they
wont to bathe. It Is to be hoped that
the pious man possessed more sonse
in the water than he owned on shore,
elso his life would not bo worth tho
purchasing if ho came within reach
of that selfsame crocodile.
