A striking case of youthful depravity
Las come t light in a 14-year-old girl ol
Taconia, who is pungently desrrilied by
her mother as "a holy terror." Id ap
plying for an order committing the girl
to the state reform school at Chehalis
the mother told the court that her
daughter had been sent to the Home of
the tiood Shepherd at Seattle, to a con
ent in Portland, to a boarding schuol in
Chehalis and from all these places she
bad run away. Just 1 if fore taking her
eat after a serious talk from the judge,
the girl astounded his honor by exclaim
ing in a saucy manner: "I will be just
on an euttalitv with that ot the c
lalior countries of the Old World.
There w iil le a rude awakening,

there will le timidity in making invest-1

prises. Labor generally will find the de- !
mand for it checked, since new etal- j
lishments will not lie founded, nor old
ones enlarged under existing uncertain-;
ties. The election of Cleveland will ,
carry with it a democratic majority both
in the senate and the house, and there
will be no obstacle to legislation on the

One of the treasures of the Edison
Photmpraph works at Orange is a cylin
der that was impressed with the Toice of
the late John MeCulIoogh, the actor,
who died in a madhouse. The impres
sion wae taken while he was in confine
ment. Rambling passages from the
plays in which he acted were recited in
a voice of wouderiul power aad pathos,
but at the end of each passage the actor
would -etop and say, iu a voice to chill
the lMxi, "But now I'm mad ha, ha,
ha, ha, ha, ha sb-h-h-h." The end
of the laugh was all but indescribable,
for he drew in his breath with a sound
tnat wae partly a snriefc and partly a
gasp, if there is ever a voice heard
from tbe tomb it is when tine cylinder
is put is the phonograph.
It ie rumored that a tall baikling is to
be ereoteti in Chicago in which there
shall sot be a stone, brick or pieee of
timber. It is to be constructed of an al
loy of aluminum and copper ninety per
cent of the former and ten per cent of
the latter in the form of sheets over a
wall of etael frame fireproofing. To a
larger extent than is nsual in such struc
tures giaec will be used, the windows
being twenty -two feet wide. Tlieetruc
ture composed entirely of plate glass
and ehiaiug pieces of aluminum, will, it
is asserted, be as striking in appearance
as it wiil be novel. The cost is esti
mated at seven hundred thousand -dollars.

Our idea of pension reform is that it
