THE TARIFF QUESTION
Made Its Appearance Unex
pectedly in the Senate.
IT WAS QUICKLY DISPOSED OF
The Sundry Civil Appropriation Bill
Wnft Completed and l'aed
Iurluc the. Day .'
Washington-, April 25. The tariff
question made its appearance unex
pectedly in the senate today, and for a
time it looked aa though the routine of
considering appropriation bills would
give way to a general tariff debate.
Sherman endeavored to secure action on
the bill relating to fruit brandies and
alcohol used in the arts. Chandler gave
warning, however, that if the bill was
taken np it would involve a debate on
tbe entire tariff question. Piatt went
farther by stating that if this correction
of the revenue laws was attempted, he
would urge that the entire Wilson law
be repealed and the former McKinley
law revived. After these announce
ments, the vote on Sherman's motion
to. proceed was followed with great in
terest, resulting in the defeat of the mo
tion 22 to 27. . -
The sundry civil appropriation bill
was completed and passed during the
day. As it passed the bouse, it carried
about $30,000,000 ; as reported to the
senate, it reached $35,000,000, and with
amendments added today, the total was
raised to $37,000,000.

It is said that a dog in Milliken,
. Mich., possesses and uses daily a full set
of artificial teeth. The dog is very old,
and it is a family pet. When it lost its
teeth recently its owner, according1 to
the story, had the local dentist make
the animal a full set of teeth, and they
ore said to be a perfect working suc
'The old notion that southern wom
en are. langnid, feeble folk ought to be
dispelled by the act of four women in
a suburb of Macon, Ga. A house took
fire during the night arid the neighbors
gathered to help the inmates in saving
their effects. Four women earned a
large upright piano from the parlor all

A fox and a hunter together stalked
a partridge near Tyson, Vt., the other
day, but each unknown to the other.
The bird alighted in an apple tree be
hind the Darn, and the hunter tiptoed
around one side of the barn and brought
the bird down. But as the, bird dropped
the fox, coming round the other side of
the barn, seized it and was off with his
dinner before the hunter could appre
ciate what had happened.
The tail of the crawfish serves that
animal as an oar. By a peculiar jerk
of the tail the animal can retire from a
dangerous object with almost incredi
ble swiftness. The tail is much more
effective in moving the animal back
ward than forward, a singular instance
of adaptation to its situation, for by
means of its tail it can withdraw into
its hole with such swiftness as in an
instant to place it out of danger, t
' The latest story of' a wonderful
gold find in Alaska is of a lake whose
bed is literally paved deep with gold
dust. The lake is 1,000 yards long, 400
. yards wide and 150 feet deep. It is fed
by water from a glacier, and its only
outlet is a little stream two feet deep,
but of incredible swiftness. The assay
of the sand which a sea captain brought
to Seattle recently showed $8 to $10 a
cubic yard, and on this basis a man
alone could take out $10,000 a year.
The big white moose recently shot
in the Maine woods by a Mr. Sargent, of
Grafton, has greatly interested natural
ists as well as sportsmen. It is the only
white moose ever seen in Maine, and
very few have ever been heard of else
where. The naturalists, say it is, of
course, not strange that there should
lie an albino jiioose, resulting from a
freak of natu re, as white deer and other
albino game animals are not uncom
mon. But white moose are a great
rarity, , '. ! ; -

He had occasion to visit the metropo

called for his bill. When "it was given
him he tendered in payment a brand

looked at it for a moment and then
passed it back.
"What is the matter?" said the offi

"I don't think it's good."
''Not good!" exclaimed the official.
