Currency- Lam Must be Enforced.
Chicago, July 28. A Times-Herald
special from Washington says President
McKinley is determined to seen re cur
rency reform legislation. To this end
he will have the active co-operation of
Secretary Gage. The currency commis
sion bill passed by the house on the last
day of the session is dead, and it is not
likely the president will revive the pro
ject of having a monetary reform meas
ure framed and recommended by a com
mission. It is now planned that an arlruinistra
. tion plan shall be formulated during the
summer and autumn and submitted to
congress when it convenes in December.
By the time Secretary Gage submits his
first annual report to congress, next De
cember, he will in all probability have a
plan formulated, which mav be submit
ted to the administration as a sc heme

LIFE IN GREAT
Less Enervating Than
. . Isolated Communities.
And as to the tendency of the growth
of great :itiesto'uervatonntic.ii.s, there
is no proof of it at all. unless v e identi
fy the life of great ciitics with the pas--sion
for idleness and pleasure diul self
irxlulgfnce which sometimes, but by
no means universally, accompanies
their growth, says the London Spec
tator. When yon get a lurg-e proletari
at, Jiving-, as that of ancient Kome aud
possibly of Nineveh and Babylon, did,
on the alms of the rich and powei "ul,
then no doubt you have the conditions
of a thoroughly vrinntual and unhea'thy
life, nd no one can wonder at the
rapid decay of such cities and of the
nations which gloried in them. But
where the honest working-class far out
number the proletariat, where the
middle classes of distributors and man
ufa-cturcrs and professional men are la
borious and energetic, find even the
class that lives on its aeeumulaied
wealth contains a considerable sprinkling-
of serious and disinterested work
ers, we do not believe that there is the
smallest evidence of any greater danger
5n the life of the agricultural village or
the pastoral tribe. Indeed, we should
regard Olive Sehrci nor's picture of the
life of the modern Boers as indicating
a condition of things more prolific of
morbid elements, with its almost com
plete absence of any stirring c-.r active
intelligence, than any kind of modern
life that is honestly laborious at all.
The Boer life is too sleepy, too desti
tute of stirring though.!- or ofiort, ic
be- altogether natural. It needs at least
the old element of dauber and neces
sary vigilance to render it even bracing.
THE BIGGEST CAT.
Is Thirty Inches Lonsr and Weiirhs
Just plain "Tom" is the unpretending
name of probably the greatest domestic
cat in. the world.
Edward Simmons, a fih and oyster
dealer of Xev,- York, is the proud pos
sessor of "Tom." This giant, of eats
is 30 inches in length, from his ht-ad to
the tip of his tail. He is a. foot high,
and weighed last spring 24 pounds.
The ieeent hot weather has caused him
to drop a few pounds of f!?sdi, but has
not impaired his health or happiness.
Thomas is black and white, and is
rather peculiarly marked. lie has two
complete rings of white around his tail,
which makes him look like first cousin
to a raccoon.
Mr. Simmons- picked up the eat two
years aro while, walking along South
street. Thomas was but a stray kitten
then, so that his )rdigree has never
been ascertained, and it is not known
whether or not heredity has had anything-
to do with his enormous size.

mARvcluOS CURt UK LOCKJAW.
Recovery of m Man Y i,o Has Suffered for
Twenty- I vo Tears.
A cure that- borders on the miracu
lous has been effected in the case of Wil
liam White, a well-known carpenter of
this city, who had suffered frcm lock
jaw for almost a quarter cf a civtury,
says the McKeesport (Pa.) Times. Mr.
White recently arrived home from the
hospital and the improvement an his
condition was simply wonderful.
When a boy of five years Mr. White
was attacked by fever. The disease
settled in his jaws and locked them
tig-ht. For 20 years he had been un
able to eat anything except food which
had been especially prepared for him
and which he forced into his mouth
through an opening- made by the ex
traction of several teeth. Vhile he
could converse in a way with bis friends
it was an extremely difficult matter to
understand him. After consulting with
numerous specialists, he left several
weeks ago for Chicago, where he was
treated by a noted physician witti
Mr., White was kept on the operating
table for eig-ht consecutive hours, dur
ing" which time an incision was made
in his cheek and the jaw bones sawed
apart. The Jiones had become jointed
and. had grown together during- the
progress of the fever. Mr. White then
g-ave up a strip of skin from his breast
which was pasted over the parts that
had been ojierated upon. Be is now
able to use his jaws and his teeth as
well as any person who has never had
the misfortune to go through such a
INGENIOUS BIRD. A i
Queer Performance of Feathered Resident
of Somali Land.
The honey bird, of which we saw sev
eral during- our travels in Somali Land,
is well worthy of mention as a natural
curiosity, says a writer in the Xine
teenth Century. It is a little gray common-looking-
bird about the size of a
thrush. It first forces itself upon the
notice of the traveler by flying- across
his path uttering a shrill, unlovely
cry. It will thep sit on a neighboring-
tj-ee, still calling- and waiting- for
him to follow. By short, rapid flights
the bird will lead its guest on and on.
till after awhile the traveler notices
that the bird has stopped its onward
course ana is hanging- about, among
certain half-dozen trees. These beinsr
visited one after another, and careful
iy examined, tue searcn win be re
warded by finding a nest of bees in
one of them. The probability is that
there will lie honey in it. I have never
known the bird mistaken. It is a mat
ter oT honor with the natives to set
aside a good portion of honey for the
bird. Although this action of the
honey bird is an established fact of
natural history, it is none the less un
accountable, and it would be interesting-
to know whether he ever tries to'
entice quadrupeds also to assist him
in obtaining- his much-loved honey.

Wonders of a Cave Near Chattanooga
That Puzzle Gnolojrists.
"The most peculiar rave I ever saw,"
sa.i;l a Chattanooga man to a Washing
ton Star writer, "is on llaccoon moun
tain, near Chattanooga. It has never
been explored, and no one really know-i
whether or not there is much of a cave.
The Indians have several legends con
cerning it. and it is remarkable that no
one has ever entered it. ft was sup
posed by the Indians to be haunted, and
there are some gruesome tales told
about it. The only opening yet dis
covered is on top of the mountain. It
has been sounded with a line of consid
erable length without, finding a bottom
to the chamber through the roof of
which the opening exists. There is a
"onstant roaring sound, like the wind
sometimes makes, ft does not seem
like water, and is undoubtedly caused
bv air circulating in the immense hole
the mountain. There are no vol
canic indications, ana tne cave is a puz
zle to gcolo'sts."

New areas for the growth of tea are
constantly opened up in the east, and
the product, will be pushed with all the
energy of merchants determined to
make fortunes. We can even foresee
the time when to every pound of tea

the subtle grocer will add the

Executed for a Beautiful Palace
The British vice-consul in Venice in
his last report says that mosaics still
continue in great demand there, says
the Loudon Times. A well-known com
pany executed last year a splendid mo
saic for a palace now in course of con
struction in Vienna. It measures 1.000
square feet and is copied from cartoons
by the painter, Edward Weith. It rep
resents the five parts of the world. Europe-stands
in the center of the frieze,
represented by the symbolic figures of
its various nations, having- on one side
the emblems of industry and trade and
at the top the emblem of the flying
genius of lig-ht. On the right are the
figures of Asia, India, China and Japan,
with their rajahs, mandarins and the
allegorical chrysanthemum. Next fol
lows Africa, with camel-drivers, palm
trees and other African symbols; on
the left, America and Australia, with
natives on horseback and on foot, fol
ag-e and other emblems.
All this variety of types, from the
fair Circassian down to the negro, and
the display of costumes, from the most
decorative to the simplest, have enabled
the painter to arrange 24 figures with
great delicacy of color and in an artis
tic manner. Over these figures, which
rest on an ornamental base, a blue sky
renecM all around its lig-ht so as to
unite all the tints of the mosaic and to
give the whole a harmony of effect
which is said to be most delig-htful to
the eye. The same company is executing-
another important mosaic for the
