Retribution Already.
The Democrats elected their candidate
for Mayor of Lynn, Mass.,, on Tuesday a
week ago by a majority of 1,700, although
Lynn gave a majority for McKinley six
weeks ago. ‘“The Bryan candidate,’’ for
such he is described, ‘ran on the platform
of unfulfilled Republican promises.”
‘Wages had not gone up in Lynn since Mec-
Kinley’s election. On the contrary, as in
other parts of the country, they had gone
down, the shoe manufacturers having re-
duced the wage rate since they coaxed their
employes into voting for the advance agent
of prosperity. The Republicans in the late
campaign drew heavily on the future in the
way of pledges of better wages, more work
and general prosperity. ‘‘Have the Demo-
crats made you rich ?’’ asked McKinley, in
one way or another, in his front porch
speeches. ‘‘Put us in power and we will do
it. We will make a tariff that will set
everything booming.’’ The people voted for
better wages and greater prosperity. In-
stead of that McKinley's election is follow-
ed by lower wages and less prosperity. Over
in Blair county, in this state, which voted
well nigh unanimously for the advance
agent, recent bank failures have so embar-
rassed the school affairs in the county that
in a number of townships the schools have
been suspended. That is not exactly what
McKinley promised, but what the people
are getting. Times in Pittsburg, meaning
general business, are much worse to-day
than they were the Christmas season a year
ago. And so it appears to be all over the
country. :
The betterment held out is to lie in an
extra session of Congress and next summer
devoted to tariff tinkering in the interest
of trusts and monopolies. We are to have
McKinley prosperity by taking an impov-
erished people at an increased rate on the
necessities of their living. The Democrats
will fight every inch of this tariff program,
and will show the people the absurdity and
folly of alleged relief measures devised for
no other purpose than to continue the cam-
paign of humbug and sham. The chances
are that before a year McKinley will be
forced to a bond issue to maintain the gold
standard, just as Cleveland was within a
year of his inauguration. McKinley accepts
the Cleveland policy as to bonds.— Post.
Refuse Oyster Shells.
The waters of Maryland produce one-
third of the total oyster supply in the
world. It yields twice as many of these
luscious bivalves as are grown in all for-
eign countries combined. During the
present century it has put on the market
400,000,000 bushels of the toothsome mol-
lusks. These have sold for the enormous
sum of $250,000,000. Almost all of this
country is dependent for the abundance
and cheapness of this edible on the supply
of the Chesapeake. From here also come
nearly all of the oysters used for canning.
In fact the output of this industry of Mary-
land is equal to one-sixth of all the fisher-
ies of the United States put together.
The quantity of oyster shells landed upon
the shores of Maryland during the last cen-
tury has been reckoned at 12,000,000 tons.
Until very lately the canning firms have
much trouble in getting rid of the shells,
having to pay, in fact, for the removal of
all they could not give away. Recently,
however they have been able to sell them.
They are now shipped to all parts of the
country, and are utilized variously for
roads, for lime and employed in making
coal gas. They have also been fouhd to
serve almost as well as stone in the manu-
facture of special grades of iron for railway
beds. Cultivators of oysters employ them,
having found that they afford suitable sur-
faces for young oysters to attach themselves
to. They are likewise used tosome extent
as chicken food. They are very good for
hens, the shells of eggs being largely made
by them. The trade received $25,000 in a
single year for the empty shells.
Old Tippecanoe.
Burial Place of William Henry Harrison to be
Properly Marked.
The William Henry Harrison tomb at
North Bend, Ind., is to be remodeled, and
plans have been submitted to ex-President
Harrison which call for an expenditure of
The new structure will be of roughly
dressed gray bedford stone. The old tomb
is on the crown of a beautifully sloping
knoll, facing the Kentucky hills where
they are separated by the Ohio river, run-
ning a few hundred feet below. The re-
“mains of more than 20 members of the il-
lustrious family surround the tomb of Wil-
liam Henry Harrison, close to the old log
cabin, which was built in 1797. The origi-
nal tomb is a mere square of brick and
stone raised two feet above the ground,
forming a mound. An iron door leads
down into the niche where the body re-
poses, but there is no marble telling the
story of his achievements or tablet record-
ing his glorious deeds. The body was en-
tombed 56 years ago.
In the proposed remodelling the interior
proper will not be touched, but the outer
part will present a complete change, as the
front will be a concave excavation into the
knoll some 50 feet wide and about the
same depth, with a stone wall leading to
the entrance. The door will be of bronze
lattice, permitting a view of the interior.
Herrmann Dead.
Expired Suddenly in his Private Car From Heart Dis-
ease.” The Great Magician Had Filled an Engage-
ment the Night Before and was in Excellent Health.
Herrman, the great magician, died very
suddenly last Thursday evening in his pri-
vate car on his way from Rochester, N.Y.
to Bradford. Death was caused by heart
‘He was a Frenchman and made his debut
as a magician when only 8 years old. The
little fellow perfomed such astonishing
feats of legerdemain that his brother regu-
larly engaged him, and young Herrmann
traveled as a magician all over Europe un-
til he was 14 years old. In Portugal the
King decorated him, and the King of Spain
made him a knight of the Order of Mach-
Herrmann left his brother after traval-
ing 6 years with him; and then traveled by
himself all over Europe and America. He
amassed a great fortune, but lived high
and spent a great deal of money.
Herrmann had a theatre in New York
for several seasons, and of late years he
made New York his home. He had a hand-
some summer home at White Stone, Long
Island. He owned a fine steam yacht, the
Fra Diavolo, in which he made many
cruises in American waters.
He spoke seven languages fluently and
had traveled around the world thice times.
He was naturalized in Boston in 1876, and
leaves a widow but no children.
Many Millions Starving.
Death and Desolation Among Famine-Stricken Vic- |
tims in India.—Efforts for their Relief.—The Em-
pire Overtaken by a Calamity which Makes Beg-
gars and Bandits of its People.—Feeding the
There are in round numbers about 287,-
000,000 people in India, and the recent
estimates made of the number of famine-
stricken sufferers has been placed as high
as 40,000,000. While this vast community
are not all actually suffering the pangs of
hunger, it is safe to say that comparatively
few of them know from day to day upon
what they will subsist, and a very con-
siderable proportion of the number is ac-
tually suffering from the lack of food.
Gangs of emaciated beggars are found on
the streets in every town and village, con-
stantly importuning the prosperous classes
and travelers at every turn.
Efforts are being made by the Govern-
ment, as far as possible, to relieve the
widespread distress, but so vast is the terri-
tory and so numerous the victims that
comparative little can be accomplished,
except in the matter of temporarily miti-
gating the condition of the wretched crea-
tures, and thousands of them must perish
for lack of food.
Since the East India Company became a
recognized agent in India no fewer than
four great famines have racked the con-
tinent from end to end, and at the present
moment the Empire has been overtaken
by another calamity of the same kind. In
fact, as far as man can foresee, nothing can
prevent an awful famine ; for, owing to
the erratic course of the north and south-
west monsoons, rains have failed through-
out the whole continent, and, consequent-
ly, the crops with them. The gravity of
the situation lies in the fact that it is not
one province alone that will feel the pinch;
the Empire from end to end sends up the
wail of famine. From Peshawur in the
nothwest to Behar in the northeast comes
the cry, while Bombay, Madras and the
Central Provinces echo the wail.
Food grains are at famine rates, and the
native merchants are doing their best to
keep them there. Grain rioting and the
looting of hazars are reported from every
side, and the professional beggars, who are
now destitute, as the common working
folk have no strplus with which to sup-
port them, are breaking through the
bounds of law and order. At every pub-
lic place—railway stations, law Courts and
the like—crowds of these emaciated and
partially clothed beggars, starving and
diseased, waylay and mob those Europeans
or well-to-do natives from whom they can
hope to extract a copper or two. At the
railway stations the scene is heartrending,
and it is only by their having been long
inured to hardship that these poor beings
can keep body and sou! together.

Tours to Florida.
No district in America presents, during
the Winter season, so many varied at-
tractions as the State of Florida. Besides
its climate, which to one escaping from the
cold and unhealthful changes of the North,
seems almost etheral, it is pre-eminently a
land of sport and pleasure. Along its
eleven hundred miles of salt water coast
and in its twelve hundred fresh water lakes
are fish of every conceivable variety, from
the migratory tribes common to Northern
waters to the tarpon, pompano and others
of a more tropical character. . Nowhere in
all our broad land can the angler find a
greater variety of game or better sport.
Here also the most enthusiatic hunter
finds satiety. Deer, turkeys, panthers and
wild cats roam at large through the more
sparsely settled regions, while birds of all
kinds may be found in abundance through-
out the State. The more novel sport of
alligator and manatee hunting may also be
indulged in by the more adventurous
With its matchless climate, its orange
groves, its rivers and lakes, its boating and
bathing, its fishing and hnnting, and its
extensive forests, Florida presents unri-
valed attractions for the valetudinarian,
the lover of nature, the sportsman and the
To this attractive State the Pennsylvania
railroad company has arranged four person-
ally conducted tours during the season of
1897, leaving by special train, January 26th,
February 9th and 23rd, and March 9th.
The first three tours will admit of a so-
journ of two weeks iu this delightful land ;
tickets for the fourth tour will be valid to
return until May 31st by regular trains.
Rates for the round trip, $50.00 from New
York, $48.00 from Philadelphia, and pro-
portionate rates from other points.

Three Lynched.
Two Brothers Strung Upto a Tree, While a Third Is
Shot.—The Story of a Crime.—How Doc. Crafton
was Stabbed in a Fight Over a Game of Cards.
Three brothers by the name of Proctor
were lynched at Russellville, Ky., Friday.
Two were hung and the third one shot
down while cursing the mob. Swaying to
and fro in the breeze from a cedar tree half
a mile south of Russellville, Ky., are the
bodies of Dink and Arch Proctor, and ly-
ing in the county jail is the body of
Will Proctor, half brother to Dink.
A mob visited the county jail, and after
battering down the front door and forcing
the jailer to give up the keys, went to the
cells for the Proctors. The oldest, Will
Proctor, cursed the mob and was shot dead
in his cell. The other two were taken out
and hanged.
The cause of the trouble was the double
killing on the night of October 14th, when
Aaron and Dr. Crafton were stabbed in
Adairville, twelve miles from Russellville
The party had been engaged in a game of
cards, and a difficulty arose.
It was settled, as some thought, but at
the midnight hour, when the Proctors were
helping the Craftons off, another quarrel
arose, and Aaron Crafton was stabbed to
death, and Dr. Crafton received what
proved to be a fatal wound.
The Proctors a week ago had their ex-
amining trial, charged with the murder of
Aaron Crafton, and Dink and Bill, half-
brothers were acquitted, and Arch held
over under bond of $2000. Their ex-
amining trial for the killing of Dr. Crafton
was set for to-day, and it is supposed that
the releasing of Bill and Dink on the
former charge, precipitated the trouble.
Five times before has Bill Proctor been
tried for his life and each time he has been
acquitted. It is said that he has been con-
nected directly or indirectly with fifteen
killings in the section. Bill Proctor has
been regarded as the shrewdest criminal
the county has ever known.
No tears were shed, as the Proctors
have been the terror of the county for years.

——Stammering is almost unknown
among savage tribes.
Don’t, if you have neglected to remem-
ber a friend, wound her pride by sending a
New Year’s gift in exchange for her Christ-
mas present. The motive is too apparent.
Teach the girls self-control. The on-
slaught of a mouse is not really more dan-
gerous to a girl than to her brother, says
an exchange, yet even a very small boy
will be covered with shame if taunted with
being afraid of one, while his older sister
will often run as if a dragon were after her.
When the same boy hurts himself, to call
him a ‘‘cry-baby’”’ will rouse him to wrath,
while the girl is encouraged to weep freely
over a scratch. Tears, by-the-way, are
largely a matter of habit, unless they come
from sore trouble, when they discredit
neither man nor woman. But if they are
only an expression of pain or vexation,
they can usually be controlled, and al-
though traditionally powerful as a weapon
against the enemy, man, there is none
which loses its edge so soon. A mother can
do her little daughter no greater service
than by checking her gently when she
cries, and praising her when she shows
courage, nor need there be any fear that
such a girl will grow up any less womanly
becanse she has learned to control her
Fair reader, is your pin money limited,
and your desire to be in the top notch of
style unlimited? The two are not, as
they seem at first glance, quite incompati-
ble and irreconcilable. The solution of
the enigma is to give special attention to
the little accessories of your toilet. By
those dainty details are ye known! Not,
by the way, by the elegant trifles, such as
the jeweled purse, the impertinent gem-
studded lorgenette, or the costly-fan, but
rather by the little things which mark the
gentlewoman—Ilittle things which appear
unimportant to the stupid woman, but
which her clever sister regards as the alpha
and omega of a well-dressed woman—trifles
all, to be sure, but trifles which make or
mar a toilet, whether it be the simplest or
the most elaborate.
Take, for example, the collar or stock.
I have seen a soiled ribbon at the throat
spoil the entire effect of an otherwise per-
fect toilette, and I havs seen a stock of
bright plaid ribbon redeem a positively
shabby gown and give its chic wearer an
air of indescribable daintiness.
The unforgivable offense in the ethics of
the fastidious woman is the wearing of
finery which has lost its first freshness—
which is not, in a word, above suspicion.
Better a gown of coarsest serge and a white
linen collar than the most elaborate crea-
tion of silk and chiffon that has the faint-
est reproach of tawdiness.
And then a woman’s shoes! How im-
portant are they in her make-up! A neat
silk stocking, and, let us say, a bronze or
beaded slipper, will go further to reduce
somebody—no matter whom—to a state of
desirable subjugation than the biggest
sleeves or the most stunning house-gown.

If there is any sign of moldiness about
the kitchen, pantry or cellar,-or wherever
food is kept, it is of special importance to
watch such places, and keep them well
aired and fresh and clean. Mold is a plant
that must be killed when it once gainsa
headway, and sulphur, is the best material
to use for this ‘‘killing,” as well as fora
preventive. Shut up the cellar, or kitchen
(or whatever is to be fumigated) perfectly
tight. Set an iron pot or kettle in a pan
of water, so that there will be no danger
from fire, set this kettle in the centre of
the moldy apartment, with a quantity of
live coals in the bottom, then quickly pour
half a pound of sulphur over the coals, and
leave the room as quickly as possible, be-
fore breathing the fumes ; then leave the
room closed until every nook and corner
has heen fumigated.
Don’t write your letters or notes in par-
agraphs ; write continuously.
Don’t leave a margin at either side of
the page ; this is schoolgirlish and obsolete.
Don’t put the date at the upper right
hand corner ; put it at the lower left hand
corner, at the end of the letter, and write
it all out ; have no figures at all in very
formal notes, but in the informal one the
year in figures is permissible, but the day
of the month, never.
Don’t write a very formal note in the
first person ; always in the third.
Don’t have any heading or signature to
a note in the third person.
Don’t ever sign your name prefixed by
Miss or Mrs. That is your title, not your
name, and itis very unrefined to do so.
When it is necessary in a business com-
munication for your title to be known put
it in parentheses, a little to the left of your
name, so : (Miss) Alice Brown.
Don’t ever let a careless letter leave your

Very few persons can distinguish a good
turkey from an inferior one. They usually
seleut the largest one in stock, and the
larger it is the better they are suited. They
often judge the fowls by the redness of the
head, deeming a bright-colored head the
unfailing sign of a vigorous and tender
bird. :
The dealer who has spent a lifetime in
the poultry trade will not depend on such
a'sign. He places his finger on the back
end of the breastbone of the turkey and
tries to bend the bone sideways. If the
bone is pliable he knows that'a young bird
is under his hand, while a hardened bone
isa sign that the turkey is of mature age.
Agricultural Education in Pennsylvania.
In an address before the State Grange, at
its meeting in Altoona, upon ‘‘Agricultural
Education in Pennsylvania,”” Dr. H. P.
Armshy, Dean of the School of Agriculture
of the Pennsylvania State College, after
alluding to the magnitude of the agricul-
tural interests of the State and the ad-
vantages, both material and social, which
would result from a better education of
the farmer, urged that while these facts
were always true, they are especially true
now. The competition resulting from
cheap transportation has resulted in a de-
pressed condition of agriculture and only
the farmer who, with scientific knowledge
and practical skill, can adapt his methods
to the changed conditions can hope to suc-
ceed. A summary was given of what the
State is doing to help the farmer in this
direction through the Farmer’s Institutes
and especially through the School of Agri-
culture of the State College. The annual
appropriations for the work of the latter
institution for the last six years have
amounted to only one and one-tenth cents
for each farm in the State or the equivalent
of a-tax of two one-thousandths of a mill
on the agricultural valuation of the State.
Of the total appropriations made by the
Legislature of 1895, but thirteen hun-
dredths of one per cent was for agricultural
education, and but fifty-three thousandths
of one per cent for the School of Agricul-
ture, which is the recognized agent of the
State for the systematic technical education
of farmers and the only institution for
agricultural education in the State.
‘While the speaker was careful to say that
these facts do not necessarily show that
agricultural education has been neglected by
the State, it was urged that, in view of the
special importance of this subject at the
present time, the State should make ample
provision for the education of the farmer in
those subjects directly related to his call-
ing. ;
At the close of the address, resolutions
commending the work of the School of Ag-
riculture and favoring liberal appropria-
tions for its support were unanimously
Tours to California.
California has been most fittingly termed
the ‘‘Italy of America.”” All the delicious
balm, the cloudless sky, and the rich ver-
dure of the great European ‘peninsula are
duplicated in this sunny land of the Pacific.
Here nature basks in the sunshine of her
own beauty ; and here she has established
her own sanitarium, where eternal spring
inspires everlasting youth. With the
snow-mantled peaks of the Sierras upon
the one hand, the calm Pacific with its soft
breeze: upon the other, and a veritable
paradise of flowers, fruits, and plants be-
tween, man can find and needs no lovelier
land. To visit such a country is a privi-
lege, a blessing.
The Pennsylvania railroad company,
recognizing the need of a more comfortable
and pleasant way of crossing the continent,
inaugurated a series of annual tours to
California, running a through train of Pull-
man ‘palace cars from New York to the
Pacific coast, and stopping at the principal
points of interest en route. The great popu-
larity of these tours demonstrates the wis-
dom of the movement.
For the season of 1897 three tours have
been arranged to leave New York, Phil-
adelphia, and Pittsburg, January 27th,
February 24th, and March 27th.
The first tour will run direct to San
Diego via St. Louis and the Santa Fe
Route, and return from San Francisco via
Salt Lake City, Denver, and Chicago, al-
lowing five weeks in California.
The second tour will run via the Mam-
moth Cave and New Orleans to San Diego,
stopping at the ‘‘Crescent City’’ during the
Mardi Gras Carnival. This tour will re-
turn via Salt Lake City, Denver, Omaha,
and Chicago, allowing four weeks in Cali-
fornia. ”
The third tour will run via Chicago,
Denver and Salt Lake City, allowing pas-
sengers to return by regular trains via dif-
ferent routes within nine months.
All of these tours, either going or re-
turning, will pass through the famous
Colorado region, Glenwood Springs, Lead-
ville, and the Garden of the Gods.
Rates from all points on the Pennsyl-
vania railroad system east of Pittsburg :
First tour, $310; second tour, $350 ;

Reduced Rates to Washington on Ac-
count of the Inauguration via
Pennsylvania Railroad.
For the benefit of those who desire to at-
tend the ceremonies incident to the in-
auguration of President-elect McKinley,
the Pennsylvania railroad company will
sell tickets to Washington March 1st, 2nd,
3rd and 4th, valid to return from March 4th
to 8th, at the following rates : From New
York, $8.00; Philadelphia, $5.40; Baltimore,
$1.60 ; Harrisburg, $5.06 ; Williamsport,
$8.79 ; Buffalo, $11.20 ; Rochester, $10.48 ;
Altoona and Pittsburg, $10.00 ; and from
all other stations on the Pennsylvania sys-
tem at reduced rates.
This inauguration will be a most interest-
ing event, and will undoubtedly attract
a large number of people from every section
of the country.
The magnificent faculties of the Penn-
sylvania railroad make this line the favor-
ite route to the national capital at all times,
and its enormous equipment and splendid
terminal advantages at Washington make
it especially popular on such occasions.
