Election day, Nov. I.
The appointment of George W. Davis
as member of the state pharmaceutical
examining board confers deserved honor
upon one of the most competent of
Xorthoubtorn Pennsylvania pharma
cists, and Incidentally upon a repub
lican who never tires In loyal and
effective .parly service. It Is fiom every
standpoint an admirable selection.
IT IS VtfRY gratifying to learn
that Congressman Palmer of the
Luzerne district has decided to
accept a renomlnatlon, which
means a le-electlon. Mr. Palmer Is one
of the few men In congress who have
won conspicuous renown during their
first terms. From tho moment of his
first appearance In the arena of debate
he was singled out with quick discern
ment by the men who shape the policy
of legislation In the lower house as a
man destined to leadership and this
early judgment has been strengthened
by the admirable speeches which he
has since contributed to the discussion
of controverted policies.
The average speech in congress Is a
good deal of a bore. Meant usually for
campaign consumption and really ad
dressed to constituents at home, it
might well bo printed silently, to the
relief of tho other members. But a.
speech by Henry V. Palmer is the
same intellectual treat in congress that
It lias for years been on the platform
in this vicinity; something substantial
as well as eloquent and witty: some
thing that conveys Ideas and inllu
ences judgment. In tne lower branch
of the national legislature are many
men who are masters of argument and
oratory, and who command, when they
speak, the attention not only of their
colleagues but alto of the country. We
do not think that any of these Is the
Bupeilor of fleneral Palmer.
Nor does his usefulness end with the
matter of facile speech-making. Often
silver-tongued orators make very com
monplace law-makcis, lacking practi
cal experience and worldly equipment
for the cfllcient transaction of public
business. General Palmer Is both nn
orator and a worker: he Is equally
at home In tho publicity of discussion
or the privacy of the committee room;
his judgment Is looked upon as equnl
to his eloquence; he Is a man to In
fluence men. Our neighbor district
could not better assure Its prestige and
a careful consideration of Its Interests
at tho national capital than by return
ing Congressman Palmer by a big ma
jority. Reports fiom Wisconsin are to tho
pffect that already the Republicans of
that state are beginning to feel sorry
at the way thelr state convention
treated Senatur Spooner. We should
think they would.
.i. The Right of Privacy.
CURrOUS declslqn hns been
made by tho Now York court
' of ifppeals, A young woman
whoso photograph, without
lief consent, had been us-,d on posters
bp advertisers of a proprietary article,
sued to recover damages and to re
strain the portrait's further use. Unani
mously the court holds that she hus no
Counsel for tho plaintiff hnd based
his argument mainly upon her right of
privacy a natural right which ho con
tended the courts wore bound to re
pfject, But tlie court holds that thero
Is), no such right. Conceding that en
forced publicity may be disagreeable,
f" eolully to a modest woman In no
ybqfore tho public, the learned ex
imlers of the luw explain thut there
no statute to cover the facts ut
bar; that the portrait ofja woman Is
as; much public property as the right to
ipjealt her name, subject, of course, to
slanderous or libelous license. There
bjjjng no averment that tho portrait In
question had been used In a manner to
reflect harshly upon tho plaintiff, the
law provides no basis of redress.
This being uceepted as true and it
Is as true in Pennsylvania as in New
Yorkthere will nujurally arise a de
.Tianh for corrective legislation. A good
Jeal of the pictorial publicity of the
Jay must be distasteful Jf not actually
painful to Us victims. Take, for ex
ample, the illustrations In same of the
sea-sldc correspondence. Nbt bo much
this year, but two or three years ago,
certain t'hnndelphln Journals featured
their Atlantic City page's by prlnllng
half-tone scenes of more or less dressed
women bathers In various postures In
the surf and sand, wltl linmes. Some
of these views rnrao so close to tho
border line of Immodesty that It Is
Inconceivable that their publication
was authorized. Certainly no respect
nblc woman would choose to have thou
sands of prurient eyes In all parts of
the country gasso upon her under such
Even at best, tho picturing of Indi
viduals In private life Is open to abuse.
It Is equally true that caricature of
public personnges Is overdone; but tho
first need Is to throw protection of law
around privacy. Tho right of privacy
should have statutory expression and
"Duty," says llnbbl lllrsch, "Is the
sacramental word which tho nineteenth
century has left to the twentieth to
make potent In social life." It Is a
good guide In nil fields of work.
Fortunes Out of Waste.
-4 NEW FEATURE of tho United
States census reports is a
JL. JL study by Henry a. Klttrcdgc,
a Boston expert, of the utiliz
ation of waste. It has not yet grown
statistical, but It will. In time the
economics devised by American In
genuity out of materials oncn wasted
will bo measurable with tolerable ac
curacy In dollars and cents and will bo
reckoned with peculiar pride. Already
they represent u value of millions an
nually. Mr. Klttredgo's monograph
looks less to figures than to processes
of waste utilization. It Is worth while
to know of some of the novel direc
tions In which this economy is being
Mr. Klttrcdgc says that while tho
choicest perfumes placed on the mar
ket are made from oils and ethers ex
tracted from flowers there are many
others which arc artificially made out
of bad-smelling elements. The fus,el oil
obtained In the distillation of spirits
has an odor that Is peculiarly disagree
able, yet It Is used after treatment
with proper acids and oxidizing agents
In making the oil of apples and tho oil
of pears; and, in addition, the oil of
grapes and the oil of cognac arp little
more than fusel oil diluted. Oil of pine
apple is best made by the nctlon of
putrid cheese on sugar or by distilling
rancid butter with alcohol and sul
phuric acid. One of the most popular
perfumes has for one of its essential
Ingredients material which is obtained
from the dralnlngs of cow houses and
Is nlso obtained from one of the pro
ducts of gas tar, out of which Is also
obtained' the oil of bitter almonds,
which Is so largely used In the manu
facture of perfumpd soap and confec
tionery. The waste heat from furnaces. Into
which Inflammable material la thrown,
may be utilized for steam purposes
in operating engines for electric light
ing and power. As an Instance of
this, the city of Glasgow, Scotland, ob
tains waste heat from such furnaces
equivalent to nearly 9,000-horse power
per day of ten hours, for manufac
turing purposes. The food wastes of
New York city are disposed of by a
process which Is, briefly, steam diges
tion and a separation of the cooked
products into greases and fertilizer
products. Tho .solids after being dried
and screened are sold to manufactur
ers of fertilizers and by them made up
Into grades particularly adapted to the
cotton belt. The greases nre nearly all
shipped abroad, refined, and separated
into various grades such as glycerine,
red oil, lard oil and more Inferior
The report shows that nil tho pro
ducts of lumber and timber formerly
wasted are now turned to some utility
and some of the now products are of
considerable value. Of this class 13
saVdust, which was formerly consid
ered an absolute waste material and
was allowed to float down stream or
was thrown In a heap and disposed of.
A way has been found of preparing
this material which gives It a value far
above that of solid timber. By the pro
cess the particles of sawdust are formed
Into a solid mass capable of being
moulded Into any shape and of receiv
ing n brilliant polish and possessing a
durability and beauty of appearance
not found In ebony, rosewood or mahog
ony. Tho production of acetic acid,
wood naphtha and tar from sawdust Is
one of tlie Inlest enterprises In Nor
way. By a recent English patent, saw
dust may bo so prepared as to be non
Inllammable and may then be applied
to tho jacketing of boilers and used for
similar other purposes. Experiments
have been made by which a high yield
of sugar has been obtained from birch
sawdust, and alcohol can bo profitably
distilled from either coarse or nno saw
dust, the product being of high quality
and trifling Impurities contained In it
being susceptlblo of ready removal,
The utilization of tho needle-shaped
leaflet of tho pine tree either nlono or In
combination with some other fibre, us
cotton, has frequently been attempted,
latterly with success, It Is now made
Into an article of commercial value for
textile or other purposes. Near Breslau,
In Silesia, there have been erected fac
tories thut convert the' pine leaves Into
what Is known us forest wool for wad
ding. Other fnctorles have been erected
In different parts of Europe for a sltnl
lur use of these leaflets, Tho products
made from these pluo tree leaflets have
been exhibited ut u number of exposi
tions where they have' attracted great
attention as furnishing suitable ma
terial for stuffing matresses and ar
ticles of furniture In place of horse
hair, for manufacture into hygenlo fab
rics for inedlcul use ond for articles of
dress such as underclothes, chest pro
tectors, etc. Attempts have been made
very recently In Oregon to muko use
of these leaflets by reducing them to a
fibrous condition, sultuble for mixing
with cotton to bo Bpun Jnto yuru for
weaving. In the preparation of the
textile matcilul an oil Is produced
which Is employed as u curative ugent
und oftentimes as u useful solvent.
These are only a few of the more In
teresting Instances of waste cited in the
report. Ten years hence tho record,
though now large, will be Jurger. Ap-
plied science abhors a waste as nature
abhors a vrtcuuml and Americans are
nothing If not applledly scientific.
Tho silllan of Uacolod, recently In
clined to get gny In Mtmlnhno, naw In
forms the American nutholltlcs that he
will be good. There's nothing like a
trouncing to pacify Oriental obstrcper

miles from Windsor, Vt to his sum

Secretary Hay $10, or $18 In all. Yet
we complain that coal Is dear.
Tho opinion of the Japanese rx-mln-Istcr
of finance, thut Americans live
too fust, Is accurate; but bow can the
pace bo moderated? One ha3 to keep
up with the procession.

THE BEST MAN.
United Slates Senator Burton, of Kan
sas, onco had a bill to collect fiom an Im
pecunious iilsh friend who had kissed tho
Blarney stono to sotno purpose. After
many notices tho "Captain") deigned to
appear In Mr. Burton's law ofllco, A half
hour of complimentary palaver availed
him nothing, and he agreed to sign a
note coveting tho claim and furnish "tho
best man In town" as indorse!'. When tho
lilshman had alllxed his mark Mr. Bur
ton, straightening his face, sternly de
manded: "Now Captain, who Is going to bo your
Tho "Captain" Indulged in another
passage of tho most unctions flattery,
then leaned over Mr. Burton's shoulder,
turned the note on Its face, and said:
"You write J. R. Burton on tho back
thcie and It will be tho namo of tho best
man In the whole county."
Mr. But ton Indorsed tlie paper. Now
'Twas a man and a maid and a llttlo gray
A-slttlng upon a wall;
And I'll tell you just what tho three were
I know, though I didn't sto all.
Tho man was scratching a puzzled head,
While tho maid, with 11 troubled air.
Was playing Ilia catechlst, blushing red;
The cat was washing her hair.
"Don't you know," said the maid, "that
'tis very wtong?"
"I don't seo why," said tho man.
"Don't you know that wo'vo not been
"Well, I'm getting on, fast as I can."
"Why bo stubborn?" tho catechlst asked,
