"In thia a school composition ou uno of tho

think very eutertaiuiug.
Uow few realize tbe unenviable politico
of a reporter of amateur perfornuueea. I
should perhapa have aaid entercainmeuts by
home talent, Tho reporter ia expected by
ull participant in the the performauce to
give unstinted praise to themselves or
frienda. VVneu oue dues put judgment and
conacieuca away, and recklu.si.ly .shower
sweets oo the performers, Misa Koow-it*all
tays: "It is very evident that reporter
knows nothing of mime, to praise Mrs.
Jouea Bi-owu R.-binsou'i performance!" Or
Mra, Brown Juues Rjluuaou, exclaims,
"Do listen to this stupid thing io tho paper,
lauding Miss Know-it all's acting to the
skies; it is really disgusting!"
If the reporter who has seen better things,
recognizing the goo.it, alao the weak points
io acting or singing, should ia kindly interest, suggest where an improvement might
be made, what a storm of anger is roused! Some offended talented creature
cornea iu, pays up, und mouu the paper;
believing the career of a jmrual ia crushed, checked by the loss of his $1,00 or
92-00 per annum.
Every born Journalist rejoices in discovering merit in other people or things
It is "grist to his mill,"affording the opportunity to record him or herself a discriminating judge, a discoverer of talent,
perhaps genius, and with pride will watch
the future progress of his protege. On
every occasion available, nonces which
are helpful and draw the public attention
will be freely given. But sometimes it is
needful lo be cruel to be kind, and a hint
or notice ofa fault may prove more help
ful than untruthful flattery. Quinine is
often better for people than caramels.
We are too prone to accept the saccharine adulation, without question resent
the slightest adverse criticism.
It means hard work lo produce either
a concert, minstrel show, or cantata, and
is deserving of liberal patronage on the
part of the people.
Uniemiles are truly most generous and
appreciative audiences.

Toe Pie and Social came in during

sufficiently lengthy to give time to the
social feature and to discuss the pies.
Tiiere were a number of kinds of pie all

tickled the palate of the writer. It had

the never failing
query: "What
shnll I wear?"
Nor Ih It possible
for the most mildly athletic woman to
provide herself with n single costume,
saying, "This is my gown for athletic
exercises," for such costumes are ns
varied as the flowers of the (leld, even
whon designed for the same kind of exercise. There -are ns many different
kinds of cycling costumes, for Instance,
es there are bicycles, and as mueh dlf-

not ride who is most critical. The
bloomer hns come In for the greatest
share of criticism, and the effect of
nuch criticism is beginning lo show lt-
to Interfere with the free management
of the pedals and to prevent Its catching on the wheels. The skirt Is practically converted into a pair of bloomers by drawstrings running up and
down the middle of the front nnd bnck
of the skirt. These strings may be
pulled aa tight as is desired, raising (tr
lowering Ihe skirt at will, and they are
provided with catches to hold them in
place. The skirt may thus become a
pair of knee bloomers, or be allowed to
hung loose like a divided skirt; and
when worn amid "lhe busy haunts of
men" It appears as a plain, ordinary
skirt with never n suspicion of masculinity about It.
The divided skirt comes In two varieties, tints making up the four mentioned nt the beginning. These are the
regulation Jenness Miller skirl, and the
une that Is only divided in the back.
Tbe latter style Is the special property of a large Ncw York slore. and has
many qualities in Its favor. Off the
wheel It hangs like an ordinary skirt,
and on the wheel It slays put, In exactly
the same folds each time, being cut ami
fashioned to fit tlie saddle. In the front
this skirt usually has a broad box pleat
to admit of the free action of tho knees
while pedaling. Some of these bicycle
skirts arc surprisingly full around the

but lhey are made uf satin for the extravagant few.
The Knglish tweeds in pepper and snlt
mixtures .are the favorite materials,
brown and white being the fashionable
as weli as I he serviceable colors. Whipcords, cheviots, hrilliantinos and corduroys are also popular. .Mrs. Langtry
wears a corduroy suit with leggings of
the same. Some of the prettiest corduroy suits are double breasted, and button up diagonally to each shoulder.
This style Is more sensible than the
Eton jacket, which Hares open and
catches the wind. The Norfolk jacket
is very popular because, besides being
well adapted to the use for which It Is
Intended, it affords such good oportunl-
ty for the display of the new belts

Leggings usually match the suit with
which they are worn, but they can be
bought separately In any material desired.   Most of them are buttoned up
on the outside. Others lace up part
way and are then fastened with Foster
bonks, with a couple of straps at the
top. It seems to be the general verdict,
however, that knee shoes are preferable
to leggings aud low shoes. As to hats,
the public favor is divided between the
Alpine hat and the Tan. O'Shanter.
A pretty hat that combines the advantages of both is now on lhe market.
It bas n rolling, narrow brim that Is
stitched to make It stiff, with a Dresden silk Tara O'Shanter crown. It Is
trimmed with a couple of quills standing up on one side. These hats nre
more becoming lo most people than
the Knglish hat. and at the same time
furnish a good shade for the eyes. Bicycle caps seem to have entirely gone out
of use among feminine riders.
Perforated gloves are among the novelties Invented for the comfort of luxury-loving wheel-women. An experienced wheehvoman recommends an
outfit for a feminine cyclist which
seems very reasonable: A full suit of
cheviot or tweed, with an extra pair of
bloomers and two pairs of equestrian
tights. With these a pair of high bicycle shoes anil one pair of low shoes with
leggings to adiuil of changes In the

hats and one pair of gloves especially

In accepting the chairmanship of the
Republican National Committee Mark
llnnna has undertaken a big job. He
will be one of the busiest men in thc
country during the next four months.
Fortunately he is of robust constitution.
One of the chief duties of the campaign
mnnugcr is to raise a cnmpaigu fund.
The greater part of the million dollars
used iu a national campaign belongs to
tlie national campaign fund and is distributed by the national chairman. It Is
sent to the Slates where ii is most needed and the national chairman must exercise good judgment in the distribution
of It, if the parly Is to achieve the best
results In a great many campaigns
money hns been spout uselessly In one
State and withheld from another State
where it would have done lhe parly
In severnl Stab's there is an elaborate
system of canvassing ami keeping n
record of the doubtful voters. This
work Is collected by townships and
then Is entered In a large book for the
guidance of the Slate committee. The
committee compiles a list of the doubtful voters who mny be 10,000 or even
20,000. To all tbese campaign literature is sent and after n time a man is
assigned to see each of them and argue
with him the necessity of voting the
Republican ticket.
All of this Involves n great deal of
expense.   The missionaries ns a rule do

athletic exercises.
A lady's sporting wardrobe bids fair
to become very voluminous. What
with her yachting costume, her tennis
gown, her yachting rig, her bathing

The Bullet  Trick.
Tlie probability was ninety-nine to
one that be would be shot, yet an Indian juggler took that one chance rath-
er than acknowledge his inability to
catch ibe bullet Doctor Hoffman, the
government ethnologist at Washington,
tells tbe story:
The bravest act 1 have ever known
was performed by nil Indian juggler.
A favorite trick id' his was one that has
often been performed by white magicians.
lt consisted in permitting himself to
be shot at, the hocus-pocus being an arrangement by which the bullet fell out
of the barrel into a cavity in the stock
before the weapon was discharged.
Meanwhile the man had another bullet
concealed In his mouth, which nt the
Instani of tiring he pushed outward
wilh his tongue, su as to malic it appear that he caught the projectile between bis teeth.
Now il happened thnt Mils man had a
rival, who wa.s engaged iu the conjuring business In a neighboring village,
(tn une occasion wheu lhe trick was to
bo performed, the Juggler having announced as usual that he wns ready to
be shot at by any oue present, the rival
stepped forward and said that he would
do the shooting; bill he demanded permission to use his own gun.
.Naturally the juggler objected, but
his protest was overruled. It was decided thnt the rival magician might
use his owu weapon. This meant almost sure death to the performer; yet
he did not blench. To refuso tbe test,
would have l>een permanent disgrace.
There was one chance out of a hundred, perhaps, that the marksman
might miss, He decided to take that
chance, and so permitted the volunteer
executioner to tako deliberate aim and
fire at h'm from a distance of half a
dozen paces. An instant later he fell
dead; the bullet has passed through his
not labor for nothing, nnd tbe clerical
work Is costly. There are traveling expenses, tbe hire of horses and vehicles
to drive through tiie country, stationery and printing and postage. All these
expenses are legltimnte and necessary
for tbe conduct of a systematic campaign. Then there are thc expenses of
campaign orators who receive In sonic
cases also large salaries. Finally, there
are campaign writers, For the notional
committee and the State committee as
well keep on their pay rolls many trained newspaper men, who furnish editorials to the press for the benefit of the
party iu the campaign. There are other
uses of money not so legitimate, but
recognized ln doubtful States as necessary to one party because the other party adopts them. The national chairman also has charge of the candidate
nnd regulates to n certain extent his
conduct and travels and no letters are
given to the public b.v th*�� candidate
without consulting with the manager.

The      U.allnf-rnlibed      Jurist       Wns
lermcil "America's Gladstone,"
Judge Lyman Trumbull, who recently passed away at his home In Chicago,
was fortunate and honored In life.
He wns contemporary with thc begln-
Ing and the end of Ibe great anti-slavery contest. He saw that sorrowful
time\ so eloquently pictured and deplored by Webster, when States were
dissevered, discordant, belligerent, and
the land was rent with civil fends nnd
and drenched in fraternal blood, and he
lived lo sec his country restored, regenerated und disenthralled, Its flag
floating over thc land and over the
sea, bearing on lis ample folds the
blazing Inscription, "Liberty nnd Union, Now and Forever, One and Inseparable." In all this Lyman Trumbull
bore n great and distinguished  part.
In a contest for the stpiniorshlp of
Illinois he was elected over Mr. Lincoln, who withdrew In his favor, nnd
five yenrs later he wns one of the foremost ndvocates of Lincoln's election to
the Presidency. Then come the civil
war and all the complicated questions
growing out of It, and Senator Trumbull brought to the solution of those
questions a sngnclty, a knowledge of
law and a dispassionate temper thnt
made him the wisest of counselors and
the most patriotic of statesmen. During the eighteen yenrs of his senatorial tenure he wns the peer of Sumner
and Fessenden, of Grimes and of Seward, of Chase and of Wade. No man
ln all that famous catalogue of statesmen deserved better of his countrymen than Lymnn Trumbull.
Judge Trumbull was born In Colchester, Conn., Oct. 12, 1813. At the nge
of 20 be had charge of nn academy at
Greenville, Gn. In 1837 he was admitted to the bar of thnt State. He
shortly thereafter removed to Illinois,
and In 1840 was elected a representative In the Legislature; before the expiration of bis term he was appointed
Secretary of State and fulfilled the
dutleB of the latter office for two years.
Thereafter ln the practice of his pro
fession he soon became the peer of tbs
most eminent lawyers In the State and,
as a recognition of this fact, be was, In
1S4S. elected one of the justices of ths
Supreme Court of Illinois, and In 1862
was re-elected for nine years. In 1853
he resigned from the supreme bench,
and In the following year was chosen
to represent his district tn Congress.
Before he had laken his seat tho Legislature elected him  United Stales Seu-
ntor for six years from March, 1855.
He was re-elected In 1861 and again
In 1867, making In all eighteen consecutive years' service In the Senate. At
tho expiration of his term of service
ln the Senate be resumed the practice
of his profession In Chicago. With no
man In our public life to-day can Judge
Trumbull he compared, but In Intellectual force he may well be likened to England's grand old man, William IOwart
In 1848 Judge Trumbull was married
to Miss Julia M. Jayne, of Springfield,
who died In Washington In 1808. On
Nov. It, 1S77, he married, In Saybrook,
Conn., Miss Mary .1. Iugraham. Six
sons were born of the first union and
two daughters of the last.
Our Consular Service.
"Tbe consular service Is the practical
and business side of our foreign Intercourse," writes ex-President Harrison in thc Ladles' Homo Journal.
"There are more than twelve hundred
persons in the consular service of the
United States. These nre located in
the important commercial cities and
towns of thc world, and are described
generally as Consuls General, Consuls,
commercial agents. Interpreters, marshals and clerks. The duties of a
Consul are various nnd multifarious.
He Is thc protector and guardian of
American commerce; provides for destitute American sailors nnd sends tbem
home; he takes charge of the effects
of American citizens dying In his jurisdiction, having no legal representative;
he receives the declaration or protests
of our citizens in any malter affecting
their rights; he keeps a record of the
arrival and departure of American
ships nnd of their cargoes, and looks
after vessels wrecked; he reports any
new Inventions or Improvements In
manufacturing processes thnt he may
observe, and nil useful Information relating to manufactures, population, scientific discoveries, or progress In the
useful arts, nnd all events or facts that
may affect the trade of the United
States, aud authenticates Invoices and
statements of the market value of merchandise to be shipped to the United
Stntes. Kvery Consulate is a commercial outpost; and If the service could
he given permanence of tenure, and
a corps of men of competent equipment. It would become n powerful
agency In extending our commerce.*'

said I bad Cancer of

any good, they gave

the same disease, tbey said I must die,
as hereditary Cancer wns incurable.
"At this crisis, 1 was advised to try
S.S.ii.,and ina short while the Cancer
began to discharge and continued to do
so for three months, then it began to
heal. I continued the medicine a while
longer until the Cancer disappeared entirely. This was several years ago aud
there bas been no return of the disease."

Microbes Lie In Wuit for the  Heads
of CtiRtomero.
If there'a one place where germs of
all sorts swarm more thickly thau nuy
other plaee It Is in a barber shop. Hundreds of people come and go and are
brushed aud cutnbed and lathered and
shared with the same Instruments, Every customer brings In IiIh private stock
and leaves contributions for the future
customers. When business Is slack thc
brushes become stock farms and gardens by themselves without outside assistance.
But the more dangerous pests of the
barber shop are much smaller. Some
are microbes, but several important
ones are vegetable parasites, minute
plants or fungi.
The principal diseases of hair are
ringworm, barbers' Itch, favus and
baldness. Ringworm of the scalp ls
culled by the skin specialists tenoa ton-
sums. It causes one or more circular
bald patches of various sizes on the
bead, covered with scales looking like
ashes, with numerous small broken-off
stumps of hair. Sometimes tliere are
several sueh patches. It Is a highly
contagious disease, and difficult to cure.
In fact, It is only curable by shaving
all the head and pulling out the diseased hair hy the roots with a pair of
pincers, whicli hurts. This treatment
must be kept up for months.
The cause of ringworm Is a fungus
called lehophyton tonsuras, wliich
grows In the hair follicles and the skin,
and flourishes iu barbers' brushes and
The secon-d disease of hair Is barbers'
itch, also called tenea sycosis, or ring*

worm of the heard. This conies chiefly
from lather brushes, and causes an Inflammation of tin* hair follicles, with
the formation of dull and fleshy tubercles. The redness and scaliuess aro
at first slight, but Increase until the
hair becomes dry. brittle, and finally
drops out. The skin becomes thick and
sensitive, so that the unfortunate victim would like to take chloroform every
time he is shaved. Barbers' licit lasts
a long time, antl often gives rise lo
permanent disfigurement. The cause
ls another fungus somewhat like the
ringworm fungus. It is always caused
by the brushes antl lather cups, whicli
become Impregnated with the fungi.
A third disease ls favus, less common
than the others, forming yellow, crusty
excavations In the hair, looking like
rats' nests. It ls distinguished by all
physicians by Its odor, which suggests
a rat, or the lion's cnge in the Central
Park menagerlo lu the winter. It
causes permanent baldness, ami ls usually Incurable. Unless powerful acids
are used lt is apt to spread.
Barbers either take no special pains
with their brushes, In which case the
brushes become zoological gardens, or
else they do what Is almost as bad���
wash them every day wilh soap anil
water. In the hist, although free front
wild beasts, they become famous botan-
leal gardens. It is the result of a botanical nature that gives rise to the
microscopic plant collections, whicli
cause the three diseases���ringworm, |

It Has Been  in the  NetKllhorliooil   of
Gorln Four  Years.
A snake that measures from twelve*
to fifteen feet hns for four year's past'
been more or less of a nuisance to the
people of (lorlu. Mo. People whose
veracity could not be doubled have told
wonderful stories of this marvelous
snake. Kvery spring some oue runs
across It. A year ago \\r. Rodney
Lease crept np to Its den and watched
for an opportunity to shoot It. but be*
came so fascinated with the sight of ltiJ
suakeshlp that he forgot to shoot until
It had crept back Into the dense uu-.
Every person who lias ever seen the
snake gives the same description of It.
It Is black hooded hend, at least fifteen
feet In length, and ns big round as a
telegraph pole. Recently, ns Mr. William Gilmore came along the track to*
wards Gortn, he met it stretched out its
length on the bridge; he thought to get
dose to it und either kill It or at least
get aeo urate measurements of it by
counting the ties it was lying on. hut'
as soon as his presence became known
to the monster it quickly coiled itself,
and  the sight so frightened  Mr.  (!;!���;
more tliat he sprung backward down
the embankment and lost no time lu
getting to town.   The dimensions ho
gave of it are too large to report; however, his word is us good us gold, and
a party is being made up In town to
try und capture this nameless species1
of the reptile family.   Taking all reports Into consideration, some lielieve'
it to be an escaped boa constrictor from .
some show, but its head Is different
from any known snake's, resembling
tliat of a dragon.
The bitterness of contests long past
becomes occasionally in the retrospect
merely amusing. What young American does not to-dny think with respect
and admiration of Wendell Phillips, us
u mnn both good und gifted, nud how
mauy times annually ure extracts from
liis speeches delivered by ambitious
and girls hi school! Yel, in a ro-

of Mrs. Hobbins, her mother, in the
days when pro-slavery und abolitionist
feeling ran highest, where her daughters were, was answered thai they had
gone to hear Wendell Phillips, The inquirer was overcome with astonish
ment and dismay: sho gave a grotin of
horror and exclaimed reproachfully.
"Those beautiful girls!"
The girls did not suffer from the experience; and one of them, Miss Rob.
bins herself, was present one nigh I
not long after, when Theodore Parker
delivered one of liis trenchant addresses before an audience in which
were elements both friendly uml hostile.
"There was," she relates, ''it sort ol

Natural gas has proved n mnst vnlu-
able fuel In Western Pennsylvania,
Ohio and Indiana and throughout the
region within easy reach of the welU,
and its use has been of especial Importance to the Iron Industries. At
first It was supposed that the supply
was Inexhaustible and great enterprises
were projected upon the basis of this
supposition. Experience has tdiown
that this is not the case and the decline
lu the supply, evidence by tli.? rapidly
decreasing pressure, has of lato Ire-
guu to excito alarm, lt is shown hy a
rcceut report that the value of tho kiis
consumed in lYnns.vlavnia, which roso
to $10,000,000' in 1888, has since that

But if tlie country pedagogue wns

of him when It camo to classification.
In the city schools all this is done by
rule nnd precept, so that the city teacher has nothing to do but follow the
principles laid down for his guidance
by the board. In the classification of
his pupils tbe country teacher was In
tlie old time a law unto himself, fettered only by the number of pupils and
by the variety of text-books. By the
exercise of a little Ingenuity he could
get twenty pupils Into forty classes,
and hear them all lu the course of tiie

for ns the school was conducted on the

Butterfly Mimic*..
In the South American forests the
butterflies and the birds arc equally
brilliant In their colors, but the butterflies being wenker. fall a prey to the
birds. One very bright-lined species of
butterfly, however, is not disturbed by
thc birds, on account of the disagreeable odor which lt emits. Singularly
enough, some other groups of Uutter-
tiles, which resemble thc species lost
described In color, also escape persecution by thc birds, although they emit
no odor. It Is evident thnt the similarity of color deceives the birds, and thua
serves ns n shield for the butterflies.
This sort of mimicry of color and form,
which iiaturali*ts call "protective resemblance," Is uot very uncoinmiw
among Insects.
when this problem was multiplied by
