JTOWTO KNOW WHEN YOU HA VE
The Chicago Herald man has had the
grip and he wants to tell his readers
now to know when they have it. He
frays that nature with a lavish hand has
endowed the human body with no less
than steen million of spots to which an
ache ordain can be attached. - When
each one of these spots, both inside and
out, is filled with a hard platinum-tipped
pain ; when your head aches so that you
re conscious of all the ruffles and scal
lops on your brain just as you see them
in the pictures in your physiology ; when
your heart thumps and your stomach
wobbles and you have the feeling that
something is wallowing through your in
wide works ; when your sternum feels
ftove in and there is an uneasiness un
der your shoulder blades as though your
wings were beginning to sprout ; when
one minute you are alive to the' finger
ips with thinking of the things you
must get up and do and the next com
pletely exhausted by even the thought
-of doing them ; when your backbone has
the sensation of being twisted by a
monkey-wrench ; when you are so dizzy
hat you can't see, and your ears ring
and your eyes water, and your nose is in
such a state that it is presumption to lay
aside your handkerchief for one short
minute ; when you cough and sneeze and
groan in turn in fine, when you feel
like the very duce you can set it down
that you have the grip.
Occasionally is heard in Oregon in
. and out of the newspapers a remark
about "hard times." We, here, in this
state have no personal knowledge of
"hard times ;" it is impossible for "hard
times" to exist here. But there are por
tions of our country not so favored as
this sunset slope. A woman writing
from Nebraska, in a plaintive appeal for
help, says : "We lost all our pigs and
chickens ; they starved to death." "It
has been months since we had two cents
in the house." "We live on mush and
milk mostly ; all we have to eat with our
Tsread is a little gravy made of lard,
thickened with flour." I did not have
;yeast or saleratus to make bread." They
.had no seed wheat, and the horses were
: so very poor that they could do very
.little plowing, etc. These poor people
on the arid plains of Nebrapka know
what "hard times" are. It is their mis
fortune to live where hard work cannot
make times the reverse of "hard".
politics must be kept out of many
thing in future where it has figured ex
tensively. Boston sets the example for
instance in its street department. The
mayor says : "I am one of those citizens
of Boston who do not care for the politics
of the street cleaner. I don't want re
publican streets, nor democratic streets.
But with my whole soul, I do sometimes
long for clean streets, permanently clean
streets and pure air would be steps
towards the lessening of both crime and
illness. Make it so we can or eat he in
town and we shall not need the parks so
' badly.V We cannot live all .the time in
the partes, and we need to breathe every
-dav. Lit the parks and suburbs then
grow slowly. But let us make Boston
what people who are old enough say it
used to be; a clean, sweet, wholesome
city, of which we can all be proud."
Very few people know that "Mother
loose" was not an imaginary person but
was burn in Boston of a wealthy family,
toward the close of the seventeenth cen
tury. Her eldest daughter, Caroline,
was married by the celebrated Cotton
Mather June 8, 1715, to a printer named
Thomas Fleet. When their children
were lorn Mrs. Goose spent her time
pouring forth songs and ditties to them,
to the annoyance of the whole neighbor
hood. " Fleet was fond of quiet and was
a sarcastic man, and he collected these
songs and published them in derision of
his mother- in-law. The book was brought
out in 1719 from Fleet's printing-house
in Pudding land, now Devonshire street,
Boston, at the price of 2 cents. It prov
ed a success beyond Fleet's expectations.
Lieut. Fred Schwatka is off again for
an exploration of Alaska. 1 He will begin
his explorations at the Yukon river and
go as far west as possible, it may be to
the Behring sea, if not stopped by the
Indians. He expects to cover about
1,000 miles. . So white man, so far as
known,. has ever entered this country, so
no one can make any predictions as to
what it will be like. This is his third ex
ploring trip to Alaska.
CirTTI?f WOOL RATES.
The 1'nton 1'aciflc Said to Have a Cinch.
The Union Pacific is accused of mak
ing a. sensational cat iti wool rates. Just
how deep the cut in has not yet been
learned.- Competitors have learned of
one consignment which could not have
taken a higher rate than 75 cents a hun
dred from the .Missouri river to Boston,
aud another taking the same rate to
In an; event the Union Pacific is said
to have a cinch on the wool business, its
competitors being unable to secure a
pound at any where near the tariff rate
of $1.20 from the Missouri river to Bos
ton. The wool traffic from Colorado,
Wyoming, Kansas and Nebraska is an
immense one and the Union Pacific
competitors will be made, if necessary,
to secure a share of the busin ess.

Teaching the science of government is
one great object of the farmers' alliance.
Too much ignorance has prevailed, and
the world of demagogues Las been taken
too long for the welfare of the people.
False systems and false politics have so
enveloped the farmers and laborers that
life is a perpetual hell before them.
They are aroused at last to the misery
and injustice of their condition, and
tney are struggling manfully to escape
from it. They will neither stop nor
slacken their work until success crowns
their labor, and justice shall once more
be. enthroned in the government. Speed

object of the Alliance is to elevate and
improve the farmer morally, socially and
financially. What farmer should ob

The old time prejudice against report
ers is fast passing away. The pencil and
notebook scribe now finds little difficulty
in gaining access to any and every B)anse
in town. This is especially the case with
women reporters, who are now chosen
from a class of people who would as soon
think of moral suicide as of violating a
confidence. Whatever is told them they
respect and only print that which fe
actually intended for publication. Peo
ple have found this out from experience
and they have gained confidence accord
ingly. But some of this reporting is ter
ribly exacting work and difficult to man
age. For example. Miss Reporter goes
to see Mrs. Interview about a forgery in
which her brother was implicated not
actually guilty, yon know, bnt drawn
into the case in a questionable way, possi
bly receiving diamonds for his wife when
the world said no diamonds were due. -
"Now, m tell you confidentially," be
gins Mrs. Interview.
"No. please don't tell me confidentially,
because I shall want to give the newspa
pers a fair account, and I can't do it if
yon bind me in this way."
"Well, you can say that those jewels
were promised long ago and were given
to iny sister-in-law because she was of
service to Mrs, Blank when her last baby I
was Dorn. unt please don t tell that."
"I think if you let me mention that
little fact every one will understand and
be in sympathy, and it will do your broth
er's side of the story lots of good."
"Oh, no! no, indeed! But you may tell
part -of it."
And. so the interview goes on, wearing
out the unhappy reporter, who must get
in her "story," and who is doing battle
between her newspaper instincts and the
betrayal of confidence. Try reporting a
little while if you think you can always
tell the right thing and withhold the
wrong. Just try it. Newport News.

wonderful of all that won

hixtt.. He threw off his. shoes, as he sat;
took the inkstand in the toe f his left
foot (having leen born; without arms),
and held the pen in those of the right.
He then wrote three- fine lines better
than most can with the fingers. He feeds
himself, and can bring.' both his meat or
his. broth to his mouth by- holding the

lacmer by occupation; milks his cows
th his toes, cute his. own hay and
binds up the handles and carries it
about the field for his. cattle. In sad
dling and bridling his. horse he does it
with his teeth. He is. so strong in hia
teeth that he can lift ten pecks of beans
with them, and he-can throw m hammer
as far with his feet s most people can
with their hands.
The Bakr'a Bath.
Nursery conveniences have been sup

sponge basin. This is a pretty and deep
china bowl, decorated in quaint Green
away figures and ' divided into, two dis
tinct receptacles by a porcelain partition.
Hot and cold water are thus directly at
nurse's hand, with a powder box and a
soap cup of a pattern to match. To fur
ther increase the usefulness of this novel
ty, small willnwware stands in white and
gold are provided, on to which the sponge
bath may be lifted and readily trans
ported to any part of the room.
Huge but light weight willow woven
hampers, exquisitely trimmed with white
esprit and pale blue ribbons, are fitted
up with every known nursery luxury,
from an ivory aud silver rattle to keep
the small bather quiet, to the day's ward
robe and a cushion fine enough for a
duchess' toilet table; no single article is
lacking. The bassinet, with its low
swung rockers und graceful canopy, is
done up in the same manner and leaves
