The democrats in congress are in a
pretty pickle. Bland threatens that un
less they pass npon his seigniorage bill
he will block the appropriation bills,
which will be fatal to the aspirations of
many democratic congressmen who de
pend for re-election upon the good, they
propose to accomplish in their neighbor
hood. One very singular fact obtrudes itself
- among the commonplace thoughts of the
hour democratic business men are
economizing and retrenching just as
vigorously as republican business men.
What makes it look so all-fired funny is
that at the same time they are confident
that business needs the stimulus which
a democratic administration would give.
Now is their time to buy up everything
in sight if they are so sure of a business
revival. They have three years to real
ire in, anyway..
The . Godey Publishing Company of
New York has assigned for the purpose
of reorganization. Godey 'a Magazine,
the oldest of its kind in the United
States, was started in Philadelphia in
1830, and was bought by a wealthy and
cultivated New Yorker, Henry J. David
' son,- jr., in 1892.. Under its new man
agement Godey's has taken on much of
the attractive guise of a latter-day lit
erary magazine, and prospects of win
ning a desirable place in the field of
periodical literature. Its owner has al
' ready spent over $300,000 on it.
The gold fields' of Africa are going to
cut a considerable figure in any discus-
' won of the coinage problem of the world.
Note the following figures compiled by
, Mr. Moreton Frewen, who is perfectly
familiar with the gold mining industry
in the 'dark continent, which give its
annual output in ounces for the past five
1891 ; .- 729,238
1893 .". 1,478,473
As this is worth about $16 per ounce,
it is at once seen that there is a large
addition made' yearly from this new
source to the world's supply of the prec
ious metal. And as Africa is largely un
explored, it is altogether probable that
new fields await the gold seekers.
' There are nearly 1,000 patients in the
asylum at Salem, which is a very large
average for the state, if all are insane.
The institution is the most expensive of
anything else in the state by far, and is
rapidly growing more eo. There is
surely a chance for retrenchment some
where. There are probably inmates
who cannot properly be called insane,
. like Ed. Gibson, who was sent to be
cured of the morphine habit. Gibson's
place is in a reformatory or Keeley in
' stitute. There are other inmates being
'cared for at state expense who have a
great deal of property in their own
right. One in mind has a fortune of
$10,000. The state law provides that the
expense of the charge shall be borne by
the person if able to pay. Again, phy
sicians frequently take a pleasant trip to
the asylum, for no apparent use, and
are allowed mileage and fees. There
should be a reform in asylum matters,
commenced by the secretary of state.

HIS CLIENT WAS GUILTY.
An Indiana Lawyer's Discovery After Se
curing at Counterfeiter's Acquittal.
Several years ago, when Judge
Francis J. Reinhard, the well-known
German lawyer of Indianapolis, was a
young but enthusiastic . attorney
practicing at Crown Point! says the
Indianapolis Sentinel, he was called in
to defend a man charged with circu
lating counterfeit money. He tallied
with the accused several times in jail
and became impressed with the idea
that the man was honest and was
litterally being outraged by the
authorities. Mr. Reinhard. entered
into the case with characteristic earn
estness and prepared himself thorough
ly to, make the defense. When the
case came to preliminary hearing the
lawyer made a terrific fight , and se
cured the discharge of his client. Out
side the courtroom, after the trial, the
client buttonholed Lawyer Reinhard
and, leading him into an alley out ot
sight of the gaping crowd, paid him
his fee with ten silver dollars. Then
with tears in his eyes he thanked the
lawyer and went his way. Mr. Rein
hard immediately proceeded to the
office of a friend to wl om he owed a
debt of sixty-five cents and tendered
one of his newly-made dollars.
"Say, Frank," said the friend, after
an investigation of the money, "this
dollar is counlferfeit.".
"You're certainly mistaken," replied
Lawyer Reinhard, "I just took it as
part of a fee from a man whom I am
confident is honest and perfectly relia
ble. I am not easily mistaken 'in my
.estimate of the character of my clients."
"That may all be so," replied the
friend; "but this money is spurious
just the same, and to prove it we will
just go over to the bank."
Thereupon the gentlemen went to
the bank, not far away, and laid down
the dollar, asking for change. The
teller, an elderly and conservative
man, adjusted a monocle to his eye,
gazed long and earnestly at the coin
and then shoved it back through the
window with the remark:
"Gentlemen, we don't take such
money as that here. It is a rank coun
terfeit." v -
Judge Reinhard at that time, as now,
was very gentlemanly in diction and
manner, but he couldn't help .himself,
and with the one expression: "Well,
I'll be d d," turned on his heel and
went out on the street. Every last one
of the silver dollars he had worked so
hard to earn was a counterfeit, and
within a short time thereafter his hon
est client was sent to the prison south
for five years for making and circulat
ing crooked money.
HOW COYOTES HUNT.
They . Take Tarns In Chasing the Fleet
footed Jack Rabbits.
"Did you ever see a pack of coyotes
a-rustlin' for grub?" asked an old miner
of a reporter of the Moreno (Cal. ) In
dicator. "I've lived on the desert for
nigh onto thirty years," he resumed,
"and seed many a queer sight, but coy
otes, a-rustlin' for grub beats them all.
Them animals arc as well trained as
anybody of soldiers ever was under
Gen. Grant. They elect a captain,
whether by drawing straws or by bal
lot, I don't recollect off-hand. Just at
daylight a reveille calls the pack to
gether, and they come yelpin' and
howlin' over the desert like a lot of
things possessed, their appetites sharp
ened by the crisp' air and eager for
their resrular diet of jerked rabbit
meat. The avant-couriers sniff around
among the sagebush and greaseweed,
while the rest of the band form into.a
big circle, sometimes spreadin' out on
the plain over a radius of two or three
miles. . The couriers head a jack rabbit
in the circle and the coyote, nearest
takes up the chase.
"You know a jack-rabbit can run ten
times fasten than, a coyote, and when
the one in pursuit . gets tuckered out
the next one takes up the chase, and so
on till the jack falls down dead from
exhaustion. Then the whole pack leap
onto him, their jaws snappin' like
sheepblades in shearin' time. Then
when the jack is disposed of another
reveille is sounded and the pack again
forms into a circle and the circus is
kept up until every one of the yelpin'
yeller devils has satisfied his appetite,
sometimes killin' hundreds of jacks
and cottontails for one meal, fur a coy
ote can eat a jack as big as himself
and then look as if he was clean starved
to death. I was clean through the late
unpleasantness with Gen. Grant, and I
know what scientific .generalin' is, and
them coyotes know as much as. any
soldiers that ever lived about army
tactics. The commander in chief is
usually the oldest coyote in the pack,
and he sits on a knoll where. he can
give orders to his lieutenants and aids,
and what they don't know about am
buscades, maneuverin' and field tactics
ain't worth knowin'." :
The President's Rights In Congress.
The president of the United States
has no personal rights in the house of
representatives, says the Washington
Post. He can send it messages, but it
is not obliged to extend any courtesies
in the way of quarters on the floor.
No - doubt he would be courteously
treated if he should come, but he nover
has come during the regular legisla
tive sessions and probably never wilL
But in the senate it is different. The
relations between the president and
the upper chamber are close and con-.
fidentiaL It passes upon his nomina
tions, and can be very agreeable or
disagreeable if it sets out.. There is a
president's room there, and he has a
right to come into the chamber , and
deliver his message in person if he
sees fit. President Madison appeared
in the senate frequently. During ex
ecutive, osessions there is a ehair .for
, the . president beside the vice presi
dent's, though it does not get warmed
with any frequency. It is one of the
traditions of the senate that the presi
dent has a right to take possession of
the vice president's chair while he is
delivering a message,, but no president
has ever availed himself of the right,
and that small boon, is still left the
second officer of the government.
AN EMPEROR AT THE PLOW.
Carious Rites Performed by the Ruler of
China at Certain Intervals.
In order to emphasize the importance
of the cultivation of the soil and to
encourage his subjects to follow agri
cultural pursuits, the emperor of Cftiina
sometimes performs certain rites at
the "emperor's field," and goes through
the form of plowing and other work of
the husbandman. One day recently,
says the N. A. U. Cable, the emperor
set out at daybreak from his palace,
with a numerous and magnificent train
of courtiers and others. Before break
fast the emperor arrived at the shrines
of the deity presiding over agriculture,
and his majesty stopped to offer up his
thanksgiving and sacrifices. . After
changing his dress the morning repast
was served, at the end of which the
emperor proceeded to- the field, at the
four .corners of which' were erected
four pavilions where the seeds of
wheat and other cereals were placed.
In the center were numbers of mag
nificently attired courtiers, each hold
ing aloft a manyrcolored flag, while on
the side of the passage were scores
of aged and ; white-haired farmers,
each having in his hand some agri
cultural implement. Placing his left
hand on the plow and holding the
whip in his right hand, the emperor
began the ceremony of the occasion.
By prearrangement the officers did
their allotted share, some wielding the
agricultural implements, while others
scattered seeds out of the baskets as if
sowing, while the emperor was busied
with the plow" which was hitched to a
richly caparisoned bullock, draped in
yellow and led by two of the emperor's
bodyguards. On the emperor finishing
his round at the plow the three princes
were ordered to go through the per
formance, and after them nine high
courtiers had their turn, after which
the performance closed.. Having re
ceived the . greeting of his officers the
emperor returned to his palace.

LAND OF BIG-NOSED MEN.
Arizona So.- Named Because of a Facial
. Who would for a moment suppose,
says the St. Louis Republic, that the
word "Arizona," which we associate
with balmy bVeezes, music, moonlight
nights and amazons, , eould mean noth
ing more or less than "a great big
nose!" The southwestern portion of
what 'is now the United States was
originally inhabited by a tribe of
natives noted far and wide for their
prominent, beak-like noses, and, al
though nature had been extremely
lavish in her gifts when she conferred
nasal appendages -upon these queer
aborigines,, they sought to enlarge
those organs by piercing the vertical
septum or gristle between the nostrils
and wearing . enormous ornaments
therein. One division of this big-nosed
tribe would wear . a ri ng hammered
from native gold or silver; another an
ornamented shell, while a third were
content with a sharp stick driven
through the cartilage - in such a man
ner as to permit of the ends projecting
several inches to the side of each nos
triL To the" early Spanish invaders
these queer but harmless creatures
were known . as 'tthe Big Noses." In
the Spanish language "nose" is nariz.
My authority says in that language
you can also express a diminutive or an
augumentative by a termination to the
name word. , Thus, narizito would
mean "a little nose," and narizon. "a
great big nose." The feminine of
narizon would be narizona. The "n"
having. been eliminated by usage and
time, we have the name as it stands
to-day Arizona. In much the same
manner the state of Oregon receives
its name from a tribe of Indians
noted for their enormous ears. They
pierced the auricle and enlarged the
lobe much in the same manner that
the Narizons enlarged their noses. In
the Spanish, "ear" is oreja. Now at
tach on, the augmentative to the word
oreja,. leaving off the final a. from the
word- meaning .ear, and we have
Orejon. Time, which, like care, will
kill a cat, has changed the "j" to- "g"
and given us the word "Oregon."
O. W. O. Hardman, Sheriff of Tyrel
Co., W.-Va., appreciates a good thing
and does not hesitate to say so. - He was

prompt relief. I find it to be an invalu

How to Eat I'm it.
In southern Europe the peasants al
ways eat fruiin its natural shape and
never thinkof treating it to doses of
sugar, salt or other seasoning. Around
Naples and in Malaga, the people bite
a hole in the orange, suck out the
juice and then throw the orange away.
Small American people often do the
same, but the American must try his
hand at improving nature, so he puts a
lump of sugar in it. An orange planter
thinks such a thing desecration.
The experience of Geo. A. Apgar, of
German Valley, N. J., is well worth re
membering. He was troubled with
chronic diarrhoea and doctored for five
monlhs and was treated by four differ
ent doctors without benefit. He then
began using Chamberlain's Colic, Chol
era and Diarrhoea Remedy, of which one
bottle effected a complete care. . It is
