Thanks to tho Uopuhlicati obstructionists

put In, however, by thu friends of the
measure in missionary work among the
few misguided democratic members, who

that enough Itopublicans will vote for it
to insure its pussngu.
Hut not much faith can lw attached to
that hope. llcpublicauB seldom vote for
u measure that is opitosed by their lead
dors, no mutter what their own opinions
may be, a ixjliticul lesson which the Dem
ocrats have never yet learned. However
it may result the Democrats who bcliuvu

redeem those pledges. If they full tho

An Ancii-.nt Homu.-t-TIio primitive man
may bu said to bu absolutely unknown,
and it wan not until after they had miidu
considerable progress toward civilization
that our prehistoric ancestors loft works
by which wu have learned something of
their rude life. Tills picture of tho mis
erable homo of thu ancient European who
for it considerable period, dwelt iu caves,
or oven more sheltered places among thu
rocks, has Ik-uii drawn by Prof. N. Joly,
of Totilousu. Iu 'this rocky ictreut he
took his meals, and allowed thu remains
of his food, uninviting to our fastidious
palates, to collect. Thu tlusli of thu mam
moth, of thu great cave bear, of thu am
phibious rhinoceros, of thu horse, the au
rochs, thu reindeer, thu fox, and, doubt
less, also wild fruits and roots, formed
his staple diet. Usually the ilesh of thu
animals was eaten raw; hut tire had long
been known, and even pottery had been
invented, and wan used for culinary pur
poses. Hunting was his principal occu
pation. Armed with the stone ax, or
mace, with tho lliut-headed lance, javu In
or arrow, hu Wildly attacked thu animals,
often of colossal slu, which then (iconlcd
our lauds, and of which many have lung
since disaiijieared. Hu clothed hlniM'lf
lu their skins, which hu had curly learned
to smooth with the scriicr, to soften and
prepare with fat or marrow, and later by
moans of a stone polisher. During thu
reindeer age fish were piocured villi u
barbed harjioou, and thu shooting of
binls wan no longer neglected Thu
Ismon and teeth of thu reindeer unit of
coiitcniMirury animals were used in thu
manufacture of weapons and tools, and
even articles of luxury and ornament.
The arts of design were born, ami thu
luluilcur hunters of Pcrlgoid and thu bear
hunters of thu Pyieuees employed their
leisme lu curving their weapons, and In
