with no prospect but that of com

Atla.it the final moraeut came. Ha

and sung the national anthem until
he was hoarse. He had been slapped
on the brick by hundreds of warm

Keep the Teeth Clean.
Dr. Oliver, in the Texas Dental Jour
nal, in an article upon "Oral Hygiene,"
believes that the teeth should be looked
after by a competent dentist from the
time when the child begins to cut its
first teeth, and says that he has seen
the first teeth ruined by rubbing
through the gums with a thimble or
scalpel, breaking the enamel before the
teeth bave come to light- He cautions
people against cutting and slashing
the gums of an Infant, unless it Is ab
solutely essential, and in any case it
should de done by a competent person.
Not only are the first teeth liable to
injury from UDwise aud unskillful in
terferences, but the embryonic second

from an overproduction of grasshop

It appears, with a surplusage of dogs.
It is long on dogs, but short oh sheep
The secretary of tbe Kansas State
Apricultural Society deplores this fact
la a recent report He shows that
there are but 200.000 sheep in tbe state,
while the number of dogs is 176.000.
Two years ago the sheep outnumbered
the dogs by 30 per cent, while laat year
this percentage was reduced to 17. In
one county there were 900 dogj to each
sheep, and in twelve selected counties
there were 'JJO dogs to each sheep. If
a similar investigation were made in
other States, we doubt not that fume of
them would show an equal dispropor

It is almost Impossible to conceive
the strain upon nerve and senses of the
rending concussion. If a visitor
watches the firing of one of the mon
ster nine-inch guns, and then places
himself beside ODe of the small pieces,
the report made by tbe one will not
appear much louder than that of the
other. The extra distance to the muz
zle of the big piece discounts the
sounds. .The only apparent difference
between the two apoears to be that the
small pieces have a sharper, higher-
pitched note, and that the six and
nine-Inch guus speak with more of a
bellowing roar. One piece of advice
may be given to anyone who finds

General Lawton'i Modesty.
The late Gen. Lawton, admittedly
the greatest Indian fighter of the
army, with all his energy, persever
ance and natural military genius, was
as conspicuously modest as Gen. Grant.
On public occasions, says a writer in
the New York Tribune, he was as bash
ful as .a girl, and as his great height
made him the center of fjttentJon io a
crowd, there were many occasions
when his bashfulness was evidently
painful. Admiral Bradford, who is one
of the giants of the navy, first met Gen.
Lawton just after the famous 1,600
mile chase for Gerouiiuo, wherein he
had displayed that genius for moving
his men which was so conspicuous
throughout the Philippine eanipaign.
"I went to the white house reception
in lS.si for the first time," says Admi

jam of the east room I could see noth

and Gen. Wheeler spoke, and there,
was elequence on all sides. Finally
the governor of Alabama introduced
Gen. Lawton as "the hero of Santiago."
Lawton was forced to say something.
It is said to be the single speech of his
life. He stood for a long time, bowing
to tbe wildly cheering crowd, and after
several attempts to bide himself, only
to be lifted to his feet again, he was
finally induced by the president to
make some response to the applause.
He advanced to the front, aud wheu
he could be heard, said simply:

The Sejatorship from Pennsylvania.
From the Philadelphia laolrer.
The Insurgent newspapers of PeDn
sylvanla are amusing themselves these
days with guesses concerning the
United States Senatorsbip. They as
sume to believe that, because by the
narrow margin of one vote Colonel
Quay was refused his seat in the Sen
ate, he is doue for for all time. Be
cause Henry W. Oiiver presided over
the recent State Convention, they de
clare that Oliver is to be given the
Quay support. When they get tired
of discussiag Oliver, they talk about
Magee, and Widtner, and even Sibley,
who has jumped into the Republican
party from the other side.
All these things are very amusiDg,
When men are making a losing fight
they whistle to kwp their courage up,
rnd that is just what the insurgent or
sans are doing to-d.ty. While shiver
ing on the verge of despair they whis
tle and try to make themselves think
that their jig is nt up. The State
Convention made Colonel Quay tbe
candidate for Senator. He is not a
candidate of his own volition, but
when the great party with which be
has acted not only invites him to be
come a candidate, but demands it,
what else can he do? He is in the
hands of tbe Republican party of
Pennsylvania, and the Republican
State Convention pledged itself to sup
port him. He is the oi.ly candidate.
There seems to be no doubt that
Quay is much stronger tis-day than he
was before the adverse vote in the
United States Senate. This will be
shown when more of the primary
elections to name candidates for the
legislature are held. Up to date be
has gained very materially over his
vote in the last Legislature. He is
practically out of the woods now ; that
is, if Republicans go to the polls and
vote the Republican ticket. Tbe only
possible way by which he can be
(eaten is to turn the State over to the
Democrats. To do this would create
great confusion, and would undoubt
edly lose to the Republican organiza
tion in Congress several members that
undoubtedly will be needed. Indeed,
the insurgents have about given up
the idea of electing any Republican to
succeed Q'lay. The lenders among the
ptrty wreckers r re alr-tdy advocating
through their organs fusion with the
1 KTnocrats. The Democratic candi
date is Colonel Guffey, and thtse lead
ers are more than wiiiing to elect Guf
fey rather than see Quay returned.
The whole otjcCt of the insurgent
leaders to-day is to elect Democrats to
We doubt very much if they will
find any considerably following will
ing to go with them, A few conspir
ing leaders may think that they can
control the great Republican vote of
Pennsylvania, but we have an idea
that the Republicans of this state are
altogether too loyal to their party to
give their votes to meu who will sup
port Guffey for United States Senator.
Origin of Visiting Cards.
"The use of visiting cards dates back
to quite an antiquity," explains Mrs.
Wo Koert Schuyler, in the Ladies'
Home Journal. "Formerly the porter
at the lodge or door of great houses
kept a visitors' book, in which he
scrawled his idea of the Dames of those
who called upon tbe master and his
family, and to whose inspection it was
submitted from time to time. One
Lfine gentleman, a scion of the nobility
from the Faubourg St. Germain, was
shocked to find that his porter kept so
poor a register of the camea of tiiose
who had called upon bim. The names,
badly written with spluttering pen
and pale or muddy Ink, suggested to
him the idea of writing his own name
upon slips of paper or bits of card
board in advance of calling upon his
neighbors lest his name should fare as
badly as the hands of their porters.

Care of Milk and Churning.
As soon as drawn from the cow, put
the milk where no bad odors can reach
it, or better, as soon as a pail is filled
strain it into the can and place it in a
tank of cold water or run through tbe
separator, if one is used. If ice is plen
tiful, reduce the temperature of the
water to V degrees, and practically all
the cream will be obtained. Do not
mix the night's and morning's milk
if the Lest grade of butter is expected.
Change the water in the tank often
enough to prevent Its becoming foul.
If tbe water is kept at a temperature of
about 5-3 degrees, practically all the
cream will rise in twenty-four Lours.
Skim, aud when enough is obtained for
a churning, raise to a temperature of
GO to 6-" degrees to ripen. Hasten the
ripening by usiug sour skim milk an a
starter. In winter churn at i drgrees;
in summer 53 to GO is preferable. As
soon as the granules are the size of
wheat grains, draw o3 and wash until
all the buttermilk is removed. Work,
salt and market as soon as possible. If
you are so unfortunate as to get a poor
grade of butter it must be consumed at
once or it will soon be urflt for use.
