Army OOrm Bare Made Harder Rides

own private horse, his guide had two
Indian ponies, and an extra horse waa

the party
They were gone twelve days, during
which they rode more than six hundred
miles not over the king's highway, but

Fuller was unable to procure more than
three feed of grain for his horses. Tho
Indian ponies gave out on the third
day, and the guide then rode tho extra
Capt. Fuller once rode sixty-six milca
in nine hours in search of deserters.

Many instances of long rides of United

men and hores was tested, and compar
isons would show that American men
and horses are second to none in tests
of this character.

Senator Brice has bet Senator Stewart
$0 that the tariff bill would pass the
senate before June 15.
The entrance of Chairman Wilson of
the ways and means committee into the
house for the first time after his long
illness was the signal for a spontaneous
outburst of applause. In an instant the
business of the house was suspended and
members flocked around the West Vir
ginian and congratulated him on his re
covery. Senator Kyle of South Dakota has re
turned to Washington to assist the sen
ste investigating committee in the prob.
ing of the attempt to buy votes on the
tariff bill. He talked freely of the case
in which he. Senator Hnnton and Major
Buttz are the principals. Sentor Kyle
believes Bnttz was in earnest; that he
meant to buy votes, and further, that
he was only the aent of a New York
lawyer sent to Washington by some
powerful syndicate.
Representative Bryan, Democrat, of
Nebraska declines to be a candidate for
re-election. He says: "If the presi
dent's financial policy becomes the pol
icy of the party, I do not see any reason
for the continued existence of the party,
because the Republicans, having fol
lowed the policy longer, are better pre
pared to support it than we. On ths
other hand, if the party repudiates Mr.
Cleveland's financial policy and renews
its devotion to the common people it
may yet become an effective instrument
in the securing of good government.
The White House is without any of
its distinguished occupants. Mrs. Cleve

The tariff bill has been amended ex
tensively to meet the objections of those
recalcitrant Democratic senators who
would not accept the house schedule.
Sugar below 10 Dutch standard is taxed
40 per cent ad valorem, and above that
standard one-eighth of 1 per cent1 per
pound is added. Butter and cherskre
taxed 4 cents per pound, hay $3 a ton,
milk 3 cents a gallon, poultry not dressed

Senator Lodge has introduced an
amendment to the tariff bill, of which
he gave notice some time ago, provid
ing that, as agaht Great Britain or
any of her colonies, a duty of double
ths amount imposed in the proposed
tariff bill shall be levied, and a duty of
85 per cent on all articles on the free
list, such duties to continue until Great
Britain shall assent to take part in an
international agreement with the United
States for the coinage and use of silver.
With the spring comes renewed agita
tion for the suppression of English spar
row. Dr. C Hart Merriam, ornitholo
gist of the agricultural department, says
the sparrows are now spreading over
the frnit growing districts of California
where, if repressive measures are not
quickly inaugurated, there are destined
to lay heavy tribute. The best way to
fight the pest is by the destruction of
the nests and the young. Ninety -pel
cent of the poles may be reached by a
long pole and a hook. The strongholds
of the sparrows in the city are the
mosses of Japanese and English ivy and
Virginia creeper on the churches. Mul
titudes of young Hrds may be destroyed
by doucing the vines with water at
night -
