Decoctions or extract of the wood or

Mal:o an extract of hickory bark or
wood by allowing wnter to percolate
through the same. Tho bark or wood
may bo ground, or sawdust therefrom

One marked difference betweon tho

corresponding class In American towns
is that the latter bny their clothing of
tailors and mannfactnrers, and therefore
get it new, while the English poor, and
particularly the English women of low
estate, prefer the castoff finery of "tho

shops.. The result is that the American
laborer and his wifo make a better ap

The Confirmation of Eckrl.
Tho confirmation of Mr. Eckels as
comptroller of tho currency is a victory
for Mr. Clevi 'nnd, who played a high
gamo ar.d won. It is now known that it
caused no little feeling on tho part of
Secretary Carlisle, who did not think
that Eckels vns a fit man for tho post
and s.iid so. Nevertheless ho would not
nntftgonize the president in tho question
of confirmation. Persons who well
know tho iV.tiingH of the president say he
ii gr"r'.ly I'-.ici-urMged ns to tho future,
including the senate's reputed hostility
on Iho silver question.
Tho line of battle against the president
was formed, mid word sent that if he
would save himself from defeat, he should
withdraw Eckels' name. To which he
is said to have replied, in substance, that
if senators chose they might reji.i't the
nomination, and he would see them later.
This had the effect of producing a sober
second thought, and Eckels was con
firmed. Persons who know tho new
comptroller say he will astonish Wall

it demands not moro than that candi

The Viennese women are justly in

mitted against tho government ns well
as on the injury to porson and property
Prompt as that demand was, tho re
sponse of Pern has been equally quick
and unequivocal. She has expressed her
regret for the occurrence, so that the

of indemnity can easily be settled. Thl

"Praying t'p tho ".topn,"
The Catholics of Cincinnati gnvo a ro
tnarkablo demonstration of the faith
that is in thorn when they "prayed up
tho stops" on Mount Adams. This pe
culiur custom has been in voguo for
about 80 years, nnd tho Church of the
Holy Cross, standing on tho brow of the
cliff on Mount Adams, has become cele
brated far and near for the miracles per
formed thero. Fully 10,000 men and
women "prayed up the steps" on Good
Friday. There are 207 of the steps in
aTt and about 85 landings. The pilgrims
who visit tho chapel must remain silent
for three hours.
Tho pilgrim upon reaching the stairs
on Third street repeats a "Hail, Mary."
Stepping upon the first step, she pause
and repeats the prayer. That done, she
steps up one nnd silently repeats "Hail,
Mnry," nnd thus step by step she prays
to tho top, pausing on the platform to
repeat tho Lord's Prayer. All this time
she keeps in mind a certain wish she
hopes to havo accomplished within the
year. Arriving at the church, the bare
footed monks bless them, nnd they go
about their business.
One of tho fair penitents said most oi
tho young ladies pray for husbands. The
married women pray for their wayward
children. Those having sick friends pray
for their recovery. It is said cases of
rheumatism hnvo been cured by the
patients "praying np the steps." Every
Good Friday tho steps aro blocked with
penitents from noon to dark. Cor. St.
Comment on Political News.
It is with extreme regret that the men
who are urgent for tho reform of the
civil service read of the wholesale re
movals of fourth class postmasters which
aro being mndo by the ready ftx of
Headsman Maxwell. The feeling is just
ns strong aguinst this vicious practice as
it was agninst the same policy under
Clarkson, and prominent men who sup
ported Cleveland have no more chnrity
for the evil under a Democratic than un
der a Republican administration. In
fnet, tho assurances which have been
given of tho purposo to extend tha civil
servico rules and to follow the spirit of
the civil servico law makes bucIi doings
ns Maxwell's all tho moro exasperating.
Ono of tho active Mugwumps of tho
campaign of 1HS4, who has supported
Cleveland ver since, speaking today of
Maxwell's policy, said that "he ought to
bo snaked out of his office." It is already
proposed to enter a formnl and vigorous
public protect against this policy of re
moval for isilitiral reasons, nnd unless
there in a change the administration will
lose rapidly in tho good will which it
evoked when it was said that the claims
of offico hunters would not be suffered
to interfere with tho public business.

practice that 1ms worked its way into the
government which is worse. It is nepo
tism in its most rcprchcusiblo form. It
is tho practice of senators, representa
tives, cabinet officials and government
offieials in general of fastening their rel
atives upon tho public treasury. An ex
ample 1b tho United States senator whose
wife's mother, sisters and a lot of cous
ins aro nil in tho departments. There
are several similar cases, besides cases
of congressmen who havo thrust their
relatives into tho public service in a vari
ety of ways.
Cabinet officers have their sons thus
fastened upon tho treasury. It is bad
enough for senntors to make their rel
atives clerks to senate committees uud
otherwise provido for them in document
rooms nud other places, whore they will
be remembered in at least ono of the
numerous appropriations ut the closo of
the session, but tho practice of coloniz
ing them in the departments is the worst
kind of nepotism. Washington Letter.
i'ubllo Dinners Are Too Merlons.
Dinners are much too serious, particu
larly for tho speakers. In Boston, in
the week ending March 18, two men
dropped doad at publiu dinners. Ono
fif tho feasts thus visited was a Tam
many club dinner on St. Patrick's day,
and the fatal visitation did not come
until 4 o'clock in tho morning. ' That
case may have been simply one of ex
hausted nature, but about the other
there was something almost suggestive
of a judgment, for it happened at the
annual supper of a Women's Christian
Temporanco union, and the brother who
fell wus a Presbyterian clergyman who
had just arisen to respond to the toast,

Not Just ItluhU
Here is a little Btory for which every
reader may furnish his own moral. In
a New England city a bright young
woman who enrns her own living had ,
snved $75 with which to go to the
World's fair. A few vretl.sagoeV-aeiiw.

contest for freo trips to tho fair. The
young womuu's friends thought they '
would surprise her with one of these
free trips. They began buying the ''
newspaper coupons and sending them in
to be credited to her.
Somo indiscreet friend let her know
what was going on. As her friends were
spending so much money for her benefit
sho felt bound in honor to assist. In the
end her $75 wont into the pool, nnd in
tho total over $100 were spent, but this
sum was not quito enough. The free
trip went to 'somebody who had 20,600 .
coupons against her 20,000. She gets
nothing for the 100 siient in her behalf, -
and sho v:ill not go to the fair. Hun

paper pocketed thousands of dollars for
which it makes no return. But did the
newspaper get this money honestly?-

The Treaty With Russia.

"That person was usually described as
an old gentlemen. . He did not mean Mr.
Gladstone. Ho meant the devil." Sir
Riclutrd's elegant persiflage was a fitting
supplement to that of Mr. .W."Morris,
who, speaking on the same day at a
mooting hold under the presidency of the
bishop of Hereford, suggested that If Mr.
Gladstone persisted with the Welsh sus
pensory bill "he might be accused, prob
ably rightly accused, of treading in the
stops" of Judas Iscariot." Mr. Morris,
howover, is but a layman, Loudon
