The Relation Each Bears to The

tho price of our cotton, wheat and other
corcils, and all thoto productR for tho sale
of which in the European markets e
aro brought into competition with oilier
nations that aro virtually on the silver

etization of silver of urcater imjiorlsnre
to the citizens of the Unilfd Slates than
even the increased per upita circulation
of our primary or redemption money that
such legislation would provide.
Our greatest sources of revenue or
national wealth aro our staple products,
like cotton, wheat anil other cereals If
0'ir placters and farmers gut good prii-es
for their products, then tho whole nation
is prosjwrous; but if, as is ihe case today,
tho prico of their products in the world's
iimrKot is below the actual cost of pro
duction, then all classes of our citizens
must suffer, excepting those receiving
fixed salaries and tho money-lenders.
Even the inonej -lenders who holJ
much loiiK-liuic paper, must eventually
sufl'cr under a steady shrinkage of prices
extending over a period of years; for the
value of tho collateral given to secure a
loan, even tliougli worth seven! limes
the amount of the loan w hen the rau:c was
effected, must eventually shrink lelow
the amount of the loin itself. Hence

TJrcos Yonr II air Carefully.
It is fashionablo just now to dress the
hair in undulating waves and to brush it
over tho ears at tho sides. A few little,
Eoft "Diana" curls are allowed to rest
on tho forehead, but tho hair is almost
invariably slightly parted in tho mid
dle. A good deal of discretion is neces
sary in dressing tho hair to adapt it to
each individual typo of face. Long, thin
faces should not have tho hair dressed
too high, as this accentuates tho length
of tho face. Bound, short faces should
havo tho coiffnro piled in fluffy curls on
tho top of the head, and a littlo butterfly
bow or fancy pin set nt jnst tho correct
angle will often have a very modliying
effect upon tho angularity of features.
Much latitudois permitted in haixdrefis
ing fashions, however, and every woman
should tako advantage of this latirndo
and adopt tho distinctive style which is
best suited to her features. It is better
even to sacrifice a littlo "high stylo"
than to dress one's hair in a fashionablo
way totally nnsnited to one's typo of
face. New York Becorder.
To 3Tako a Stock Collar.
In making tho newest stock collars for
very dressy use more than one material
is used. For example, a folded collar of
black velvet lined with cherry satin,
with large rosettes at each side made of
jetted velvet lined with the satin.
Again, a fancy bow of pink satin ribbon
arranged in front on a crush collar of
wine colored velours. Two rows of
golden brown satin edged faille ribbon
form -a stock collar, finished with a
rosetto of sago green chiffon placed each
sido near tho front Another pretty col
lar band is made of roso pink silk, the
wrinkled effect produced by shirring
tho silk at both edges. Directly in front
aro set two fans of white lace, held
down by a wrinkled crosspieco of the
silk. Tho beautiful lace is wired to
stand out stiffly about tho neck, and the
softly falling fan ends nearly cover the
top of the bodice. New Orleans Pica

Mrs. P. H. Palmer, president of tho
board of lay managers of tho World s
Columbian commission, has issued a
circular in which attention is called to
tho Isabella coin recently minted by o:

commemorate tho fac that a board of
women was for tho first time called by
tho government to tako official part in
tho Columbian exposition and also to
honor the great Queen Isabella, whose
portrait it bears. Tho circular further

A MARVEL OF LONDON.
The Admirable Mannerln Which Its Street
Truffle Is Handled.
It has long been a marvel that, al
though foreigners sojourning In London
havo accustomed themselves topraiso
tho skill with which the street traffic of
this world city is handled, yet none of
them has carried the lesson home and
put It into practice in his own town.
Thero is no secret in the matter. The
information can be had for the asking,
and they that dwell in towns will be
tho gainers by it Well, then, how did
it come about?
Go to Hydo park corner any day In
tho season and watch tho streams of
traffic as they flow in and out of the
open space around the Wellington statue
thousands of cabs, omnibuses, drays,
private carnages, hand barrows; dog- ,
carts, bicycles every sort of thing that
can go on wheels. Chaos would come
again if itworo not for a policeman
hero, another thero and one at the oppo
Hamilton place, at tho bottom of Park
lane, pours a strong current into Picca
dilly. Two policemen get you through
it without so much as a sneeze, s wink
or a loss of breath! Without tho two
policemen thero would be no getting
through. One of them controls the traffic
entering Hamilton place; tho other con
trols the traffic leaving it A motion of
the hand stops tho stream in PiccadiUy
and lets tho stream from Hamilton placo
flow in, or vice versa. No matter who
you are, or what you ara driving in, or
in how great a hurry you may be cab
man or costermonger, dukedriving a
four-in-hand, coachman of a prince,
with his royal highness impatiently
waiting in his red lined carriage you
must stop when tho policeman's hand is
raised, and yon may not go on again un
til it is lowered.
Break tho rule, and you shall see
what happens a summons to the police
court and a fine, whether you aro coster,
cabman, dnko or his high mightiness
himself. Is this antocracry or democracy?
Call it what yon choose, it is good man
agement Without it London would be
impossible, because it would bo impass
able. There is. no "slanging," no "sassing
back," no pictnrcsquo objurgation of
any sort If yon inaka a disturbance, so
much tho worse for you, not for your
bones, or for your flesh, but for your
convenience and your pocketbook, and
peradventuro yonr reputation as a peace
able subject Tho policeman does not
flourish a "billy." He does not carry

upon you. He is imperturbable, and ho

Attacked by a Rhinoceros.
The author of "Discovery of Lakes
Budolf and Stefanio" had shot a zebra,
and Ips men were making ready to cut it
up, when two rhinoceroses appeared in
the. distance. Apparently tho firing o;
tho gun had disturbed" their riap"anrl
mado them thoroughly angry.
Though more than 400 paces off, tho
rhinoceroses swerved aside when they
saw ns and then dashed upon us with
tho speed of raco horses. As usual, my
black companions tcok to their heels,
making for a solitary trco soma distance
off. It was hopeless for mo to think of
reaching it, and there was not so much
as a blade of straw for cover anywhere.
And behind the dead zebra, which would
have been better than nothing, three of
my men were already crouching.
Thero was nothing for it but to brave
the situation out, so I knelt on one knee,
the better to take aim, and with my
elephant gun in hand waited to fire tin.
I could hope to kilL It seemed a long
timo before I could cover tho shoulder
of cither of the huge beasts, and I knew
any other shot would bo useless. The
result was that I did not pull the trig
ger till one cf the animals was only
some eight or ten paces off.
It staggered and fell, but the next
moment was on its feet again. It wa3
not killed, but its ardor was cooled, for
it turned away, followed by its compan
ion. Twice it seemed about to fall, and
I did not think a second shot would be
necessary, but it got away with undi
minished speed, and though wo followed
it for somo distance wo lost it
Flea For Second Class Cars.
William Gates, tho veteran ticket
agent, is of tho opinion that America
could profit by adopting at least cne
feature of European railway service. "I
beliovo that wo woald secure n largo
amount of travel which wo do not now
seenro by adopting tho second class fea
ture," said he. "Tho luxurious manner
in which our largo sleepers and chair
cars aro constructed involves an enor
mous expense. Tho fellows who do not
use theso cars aro obliged to pay for tho
luxuries enjoyed bywcalthiertravelers.
Tho companies aro obliged to charge a
uniformly high rate of mileage in order
to furnish swell service. I advocate hav
ing a. strictly second class train between
hero and Now York. Put the prico at
$10. I am positive that it would greatly
increaso travel. Put it on a slow sched
ule. Tho people who patronizo it would
not expect 'flier service, and as long as
it carried thorn over the ground they
would be satisfied. Tho train would be
well patronized from this station. Then
tho first clas3 trains could be made
strictly first class, and each fellow would
pay for tho service ho required. I would
like to see it tried. "Toledo Blade.
