The Republican state convention of
lowa met last week and the "lowa
Mm" waa given an airing, but there
seems to be nothing new in it The
Republican party believes that a pro
l&toetive tariff builds up industries.
When the time comes that an industry
does not need protection the tariff can
to reduced or taken off.
It to probable, that the Tariff act
under which we are working to-day is
unjust in some particulars, but isn't it
better to pot up with this possible in
. justice in spots rather than to readjust
tiw entire bill? For readjustment
KM means, of course, a general overhauling
a tearing out of the tariff bill, an un

History repeats itself in gas explosions
as in other accidents. The explosion
that wrecked Elmer Schenk's house en
West Penn street a few evenings ago,
was somewhat similar to the one that
wrecked the Goetz house twenty years
ago. In both cases the gas accumulated
in the basement or cellar. Elmer and
his family were in the sitting room of
their house that evening, when they
smelled gas. The Welsbach lights were
burning. Elmer lit a match and applied
it to the gas pipe at the floor; the flame
followed down instantly to the gas
under the floor; the whole house—a four
room cottage, with kitchen—was lifted
a foot or two and dropped, the walls
spreading from their posts. Almost
everything in the three rooms of the
first floor was wrecked, and yet none of
the grown people nor the two babies
were hurt
Of all the accidents that happened on
the Fourth the one at the corner of
Forbes street and Oakland ave., Pitts
burg, was the most remarkable. A
large flag, over a grocery store, became
soaked by the rain, and the end of it
wrapped around an arc-light wire; then
the wind exerted such a pressure upon
,the flag as to snap the wire and the end
of it fell into a pool of water on the
street Water is as good a conductor of
electricity as is metal, and thus the
pool became a death trap to any who
touched it A young man who was
sheltering himself from the Btorm in a
doorway on one side of the street
thought he could do better on the other,
and started across; his Toot went into
the water, he was instantly killed, and
nobody dared touch him A. man who
started with his family in a surry for
the Park, turned back on account of the
storm; as he neared the pool people
yelled at him to stop, but the noise of
the storm prevented him from bear
ing what they said; when the horses
feet touched the pool they fell, and the
people in the surry jumped out; four
got out on one side and were safe, three
got out on the other and were killed as
soon as their feet touched the water,
and all had to lay there till the current
was shut off.
THE town of Evansville, in south
western Indiana, just across the river

Frank Miller of Beaver Co. has a patch

Some days ago he made an investiga

there extended several roots on which
were growing a new potato, well devel

gations in several parts of the patch
showed the same peculiar growth.
Many neighbors have visited the patch
and are amazed at the results. The ab

comment and the general verdict is that
after many years of experiments and
labor a vineless potato is possible.
