How It Ilns Urown to Its Present Aw
fill Proportions—Dcinoci-utl<* and
ltrpnl-licnii Halt- < oniparrd.
In connection with state politics in
Pennsylvania there are few things more
interesting or instructive and absolute
ly nothing more fully demonstrable
of the curse of the machine rule than a
study and comparison of the various
general appropriation acts of the state
legislature. Mr. Wanamaker has fit
tingly supplemented the work of the
Democratic party, its conventions, com
mittees and press, in explaining to the
people that these acts cover many mon-
Ntrous extravagances and villainous
f.teals. There are not many of the
features of them more prolific and as
tounding in this range of development
than those that touch the sums voted
for legislative junkets, "extra services"
of legislative committees, and the
multitudinous commissions that are
constituted for the solo purpose of put
ting unearned money into the pockets
of the henchmen and retainers of the
dominant party throughout the state.
A carefully compiled tabic, made up
from an item-by-item search of the
general appropriation acts for the past 15
years shows that in 1883, the first year
of Governor Pattison's tirst administra
tion.there wasatotal of $7,348.91 awarded
for these purposes. These included the
expenses of investigating the State col
lege, the clerical force of the several
state departments, the western Penn
sylvania insane asylum and peniten
tiary, and the accounts of that expen
sive appendage to our state govern
ment, Mr. John C. Delaney, then occu
pying the position of librarian of the
senate, which had no library.
They covered also the cost of the Bns
ier-Wagner contested election case
($1,185) and of a commission selected
to report a comprehensive system of
bookkeeping for the several depart
In the year 1885 there were still fewer
appropriations of this kind, the total
being but $3,918, out of which an item
of $1,200, for the expenses of the com
mittee to investigate the Standard Oil
trust, Governor Pattlson vetoed, leav
ing a balance of but $2,718.43 taken from
the treasury by the general appropria
tion act, as Anally made a law, for
these purposes.
In 1887, however, General Beaver hav
ing in the meanwhile become governor,
these appropriations swelled to $16,965,
an increase of several hundred per
cent. As illustrating the careless and
fraudulent methods that had already
begun to prevail, $6,000 of this total was
voted In a lump sum for four Investi
gations, an excursion to Gettysburg
and a member's funeral.
It was not until 1889, however, that
there was anything like a really riot
ous revel along these lines. Beaver was
stilt governor, and the aggregated Items
in the general appropriation bill for
these unnecessary and unlawful uses
reached the enormous sum of $123,868,-
60. These included $17,860 for a house
contest and $39,759.72 for a senatorial
contest, entirely unprecedented figures,
$15,000 for a committee to examine and
report upon the charitable and correc
tional systems of the commonwealth.
$6,000 for a commission to codify the
road laws, another $6,000 for a com
mittee on Industrial education and
$10,700 laid out In taking the
legislators to participation in the
centennial Inauguration of George
Washington as president. And Beaver
never interposed a single veto. A
unique Item in this list is SIOO for a
committee on amended orthography.
There was certainly a bad spell of ap
propriation legislation about that time.
It was so had, In fact, that its cost ti
the taxpayers was greater even than
the accomplished and proposed similar
steals of the 1897 legislature, including
both those In the general appropriation
and those In the special appropriation
bills, and the citizen who believes in
honesty and economy in state expendi
tures may he pardoned for asking
where were Wanamaker and Swallow
In 1891 the Democrats attain had the
governor and that year the appropria
tions for junkets, &<•., in the general
act were but $73,859.33, and of these
Mr. Pattison vetoed items aggregating
$34,116, leaving the actual outlay but
$39,743.23, or less than a third of Heav
er's last term figures.
In 1893, warned doubtless by these ve
toes, the legislature made the general
appropriation act cover only $3,466.12 of
such expenditures.
Hut the Republicans came In again
in 1895, and that year the total was
$115,486.92, or about $15,000 more in the
general bill than there were in 1893 in
both the general and the special bills
together. Here again was a sharp
summons to Republican reformers, but
they failed to put In an appearance.
Hastings had not yet fallen out with
the machine. His vetoes, in 1 95, of
this class of Items amounted, all told,
to $40,715, leaving a balance awarded
of $74,771.92, or nearly 22 times as much
as the total for Pattlson's last term.
The 1897 legislature voted for pur
poses within the category under discus
sion $11,401.43 In the general bill and
$60,123.02 in special bills. Of the aggre
gate, $101,524.45. Governor Hastings ve
toed, all told, but $30,823.90, leaving the
actual waste or fraud at $70,691.55.
There was absolutely no excuse for
more than probably a tenth of this
outlay. It comprehended, as fully ex
plained In another article, very many
audacious swindles in addition to the
handful exposed and overridden by the
governor. And yet the cost to the state
of the whole business was much less
than that of 1895 or that of 1889, though,
In those years the Democratic protests
went utterly unheeded by the so-called
Republican and Prohibitionist reform
ers, and the perpetrators of the scoun
drelly grabs pocketed the swag and
were In many Instances triumphantly
returned to the places they had dis

rent or something of the sort, do ne
the girls la, story books, and go to a
hairdresser and sacrifice their magnifi
cent "crowning glories" for their fam
ily. It is true that some hair is ob
tained In this way, hut the supply is
too inconstant to be depended upon.
There is a regular hair harvest, just
as regular as the wheat crop. In fact,
It is more to l-o depended upon, as
drought does not affect it. Most of
this hair comes from Switzerland, Ge
many and the French provinces.
There is a human hair market in the
lower Pyrenees held every Friday.
Scores of hair traders walk up and
down the village streets, their shears
dangling from their belts, and cx
amiue the braids which the peasant
girls let down for their inspection. If
a bargain is struck the hair is cut and
the money paid on the spot.
These girls lgtve fine linir and can
raise more than one crop. A woman's
hair may grow to the length of six
feet. A single hair will lvar up a
weight of four ounces without break
ing, but the hair thus heavily tried
must be dark brown, for blonde hair
will break under a strain of two and
a half ounces.
The hair that is cut Is the best.
Dealers can easily tell whether the
locks offered them have lx-en cut off
or combed out. Tlicy do this by rub
bing the hairs through their fingers.
If the hair lias la-en cut from the head
and lias not been misplaced it remains
In the original position. If It has been
pulled or combed out and put together
regardless of the direction la which it
grew, one portion will slip to the right
and another to the left. It does this
because the Jagged edges catch upon

On the site of an old Shawnee vil
lage is n spot which seems to have
been the thickest settled part of the
town, is a grove of black oak trees.
In this grove are two very large post
oak trees, one In the south and one
In tin- north end of the grove. In the
grove can lie heard most any day the
buzzing of n swarm of bees so
plainly lhat the noise has fooh-d many
old las- hunters, lint all their search
lias never revealed a single bee.
Now comes the most peculiar part
of this most peculiar tale. The huge
postoak tree standing at the north
end of tin- grove is the curiosity of
the bunch, for not long ago a young
man hearing of tin- bees went to tin
spot and proceeded In look carefully
till each tree in the grove until he
came to tin- north tree, lie was with
in two leet of tills tree. Inking up,
when he heard a noise Just like a
carpenter at work nailing on hoards,
and tin- noise socmcd to come from
the tree. He went around it several
times, trying to locate the hammering,
but it still seemed to come from the
tree. The hammering continued until
he happened to touch the tree with
his hand, when it suddenly stopped.
The man ilu-n went away amazed.
A day or so afterward this man had
invasion again to pass that way. He
slipped up to the tree and listened for
the hammering, and sure enough, It
was as plain as ever. He touched the
tree with the end of his linger, and
as before the noise stopped at oner.
This man and several others have
tried touching the tree several tunes
since, with the same result.
Tlic.v say Hint the humming ol' la*is
and the curious hammering can lw
heard any day. hut no one has l>eea
able to explain the mysteries of th!
enchanted grove,—Galveston News.

morphine into my artn to ease the pain.
"My disease, however, gradually became
worse until I thought that death would he a
welcome release from my sufferings. I could
