from the grovelling terroi-s of supersti

Interfere with individual rights and
that the employer and employees must
settle the Homostead question them

expensive strike, having already cost

accepting the proKltion to arbitrate,
made by the iron manufacturers, which

Two buildings are going up. Behind
one is a plan, carefully thought out,
perseveringly executed. What a splen
did structure result! The other follows,
not a thoughtful plan, only an lndiflnlte
purpose. The builder continues to put
together beams and joists and boards.
He persistently runs his saw, shoves
Ills plane, and pounds with his hammer.
He has something of a building to Bhow
for his pains. What a difference,
though, between it and the other build
ing! What makes tho difference?
Brains, thought, a plan. What kind
of a character are you building, young
man? How are you preparing for the
active duties of life? Are you building
in a hap-hazard way, or have you your
plans all laid and building a character
that will not only be substantial, but
also beautiful.
The Republican Conference of the
Senatorial district composed of Indiana
and Jefferson counties, convened at
Marlon Centre, July 12th, and after
taking forty ballots without a choice,
adjourned to met at the American Hotel,
Brookville, on Tuesday, July 20th.
The convention met at Brookville
Tuesday of last week and up to noon on
Friday no nomination had been made,
the Indiana conferees refused to adjourn
for an afternoon session and then
picked up their hats and walked out and
took the noon train for home. The
Conference met at 9 o'clock Saturday
morning and unanimously nominated
James G. Mitchell, of Jefferson county,
as the Republican candidate for the 37th
; senatorial district of Pennsylvania.
How Indiana will take to the nomination
' will be made known when they are heard
from. It is but justice that Jefferson

Wo hear a groat dent nowadays about
the management of husbands, and the
matter Is discussed as If.llke enilmlinlng
the dead, it was one of the lost arts,
writes Edward W. Bok in "At Homo
With the Editor" in tho August LnrfW
Home Jimrnnl. But I notice that the
women who are agitating the question
are not the gentlewomen of this country.
No, my positive friend, you who will
rise at this and say that these other
women are under the subject of their
husband and nre afraid to sjicak. This
Is not so. These women have found a
warm and tender plaice In tho heart of
their mankind. They have found the
secret of "managing a husband," and
you have not. Prate all you like,
agitate all you wish at cluhmcctlng and
nt women's gathering, but the secret
will not thus be found. The place to
learn how to manage a husband Is not
at the meeting of your club, but In
your home, at the side of your husband
and with your children. "That's the
old-fashioned Idea," said a punitive
woman contemptuously to me the other
day. Yes, thank Clod it Is, iny friend,
and it would lie belter for the happiness
of hundreds of women lo-day if they
would 1x a little more old-fashioned in
this resiiect.

A pigeon flying experiment at Tours
has ended in a most remarkable man
ner, proving the shocking fact that the
useful birds, in addition to being ex
cessively greedy, are also given to an
overindulgence in strong drinks. Four
hundred and twenty-nine pigeons were
conveyed by train from Tours to La
Bohalle and there let loose. To the as
tonishment of the various societies in
terested in the experiment, only forty
returned home, and these were in
dazed condition, and quite incapable of
finding their respective quarters.
, An inquiry resulted in the discovery
that at a roadside station large con
signment of black currants had been
put into the same van as the birds. The
inebriating qualities of the currant
juice proved too much for the little trav
elers, and they were quickly in inch
condition that only a small proportion
were sober enough to find their way
back to Tours. Exchange.
A Strang Illrd In the Plgaon's Nt,
, Harry Francis, a boy of thirteen
years, living on Pratt street, had a Leg
born hen'a egg given him, which he put
in charge of two male pigeons. The
birds sat upon the egg until within two
days of the time for it to hatch, when
they deserted it. The boy placed it
under another pigeon which was already
sitting on two eggs, and Sunday a little
brown chick burst its shell.
The foster parent fed the little stran
ger pigeon fashion.which method seemed
to puzzle the chicken, making it amus
ing to watch them. The newcomer's
language appears to be a mystery to the
pigeons, but tbey treat the little fellow
well. Provldenee Journal.

One of the annoyances in playing
checkers is the occasional slipping off of
the top checker whenever a piece is
made a king. To avoid this a New York
man has devised an extensible checker,
consisting of a body and a shell sur
rounding it, and as soon as a piece be
comes a king the extensible portion ts
easily thrust upward and remains in its
place. New York Letter.
