A. Story of the Presidential Campaign
In 1896.
A clever bit ol campaign repartee is
accredited to Lee Fairchild, the Cali
fornia orator, who leaped into nation
al repute in 1836. He was sent into a
Southern Btate to advocate the gold
standard. At a certain place he was
informed by the committee that the
"rally" would begin and end about the
same time, and that not since 1883
had any republican speaker been per
mitted to finish a speech there.
Upon learning that the speakers, as
rule, had been able to get out of
town and fill their next appointments,
Fairchild determined to make the at
tempt as billed. He advised the chair
man to have no music, and to intro
duce him by . saying to the audience:
"You are the people and here is the
speaker." The chairman followed in
structions a little too literally. He
imply pointed at the audience and then
at the speaker, and disappeared behind
the scenes. -i.- -
Fairchild began his speech at once
with one of his famous stories. The
audience was separated, the colored
folk all being in the gallery, and only
white people below. In about five
minutes the speaker made a pointed
thrust at the opponent party, when an
organized body of young men in the
center of the theater shouted' in con
cert, "Rats!"
Fairchild paused for a moment, and
then, waving his hand at the gallery,
said: "Waiter, come down and take
the Chinamen's orders!" The effect
was electrical. The speaker, in relat
ing the incident to the writer, said:
"You should have seen that black hill-
i aide of faces sloping heavenward break
into ledges of pearls." Denver Times.
State Turtles. -
Turtles aie very largely tound along
' the coast line of Burma and the impe-
canious government has found means
to make money out of it. .The right to
- collect turtles and eggs is sold by auc
tion annually by the deputy commis
sioners within whoBe districts the
banks are situated. The revenue from
this source in the Irrawaddy division
alone was about 28,000 rupees. For
come time past a deorease in the nam
ber of turtles and tortoises has been
noticed and the government now pro
poses that the islands on which the tor
toises lay should be completely pro
tected from January 1 to May 15 (the
laying and hatching season) once in
very five yeais and that a small estab
lishment should be maintained for this
purpose. Calcutta Amrita Bazar Pa

Jacob H. Schlff, Who Has Given Si-tOO,-v
OOO to Harvard. ""'
The charities of Jacob H. Schiff, of
New York, who has given $400,000 to
Harvard, are very large. His first
large gift was made about . twenty
years ago, when he gave $25,000 for &
building for the Hebrew Free Schools
Association. He established a nurses'
settlement on the East Side, a non
sectarian charity. The Initiatory cost
$30,000, and it costs $7,500 to maintain
It. A handsome stone fountain in Rut
gers Square, bearing the simple Inscrip
tion, "Presented to the City of New
York 1S95," was for a time an anony
mous gift from Mr. Schlff, which cost
$10,000. In 18S2-S3, when the Russian
Hebrews were flocking to New York
City, he gave $10,000 to erect temporary
shelters for them. Two years ago he
presented to the Young Men's Hebrew
Association a $30,000 house. He prom
ised them a larger, handsomer build
ing as soon as the membership should
grow large enough to support such a
home. He has just redeemed his prom
ise by giving the association a plot of
ground at Ninety-second street and
Lexington avenue, and Instructing his
architects to erect a building thereon,
the ground and bouse to cost $150,000.
He originated the plan which led to
the birth of the Monteflore home. He
gave a few years ago $25,000 for., a
country sanitarium In connection with
the home at Bedford Station, on Har
lem Railroad. He has also given $5,
000 as the nucleus of a fund In mem
ory of the late Michael Heilbron, $10,
D00 to the Hebrew Loan Society, and a
large sum to Barnard College. The of
fer of his gifts to Harvard for the Sem
itic Department was made June 27.
The next day President Eliot said in
effect the university would accept the
conditions imposed. These were that

His Text In "Roblnaon Crusoe."
A humorous incident happened in
Cleveland several years ago. . A certain
pastor, widely known and greatly' be
loved, was not as careful as be might
have been in the preparation of hia
sermons. He was hampered but little
by his manuscripts, and had a way of
wandering far from the written screed.
However, be had the good sense to sub
mit 'his texts, and usually his manu
script sermons, to his highly intelli
gent wife. He usually did this Satur
day night, but on one occasion the lady
happened to be away frorri home all
the evening. So on Sunday morning
she asked him for the chosen text.
He gave it very gibly...-
"Book, chapter and -- verse?" . sh
- The pastor hung his head. ?
"The fact is, my dear, l'was in such
a hurry that I couldn't quite turn to it.
but I've built up a most interesting
sermon around it."
'And you couldn't find it?"
"No, my dear."
"Well, it isn't much to be won
dered at," said his helpmeet, dryly.
"That text of yours is from 'Robinson
Crusoe.' "
"NoT gasped the shocked pastor.
"What will I do?"
; "Give me tbe Bible," said the wife.
And it wasn't but a few moments be
fore she had . picked out a text that
fitted the sermon almost as well as the
Crusoe quotation.

The Flies of Keypt.
The flies of Egypt deserve a tribute
to their peculiar qualities. . A plague
of American flies would" be a luxury
compared to the visit of one fly from
Egypt For untold 'centuries they
have been in the habit of crawling over
thiok-skinned faces and bodies and not
being dislodged. They can stay all
day if they like. Consequently, if
theysee an American eye, and they
light on it, not content with that, they
try to ciawl in.' You attempt to brush
them off, but they only move around
to the other side, until you ate mad
with nervousness from their etiokv
feet. If they find out your ear they
crawl in and walk around. You can
not discourage them. They craze you
with their infuriating persistence.- If
1 had been the Egyptians the Israelites
would have been escorted out of the
country in' state at the arrival of the
first fly.' Lilian Bell, in Woman's
HOrne Companion. '

Tells the Secret of His
Robert Downing, the Tragedian.
: Robert Downing was recently inter
viewed by the press oh the subject of
his splendid health. Mr. Downing
promptly and emphatically gave the
whole credit of his splendid physical
condition to Pe-ru-na, saying: - -'
"I find it a preventive against all
sudden summer ills that swoop upon
one in changing climates and water.
"It is the finest traveling companion
and safeguaid against malarial influ
ences. "
"Tos sum it up, Pe-ru-na has done
me more good than any tonic I have
ever taken."
Healthy mucous membranes nrotect
the body against the heat of Bummer
and the cold of winter. Pe-ru-na is
sure to brine health to the mucous
membianes of the whole body.

Remember that cholera morbus,
cholera infantum, summer com
plaint, bilious colic, diarrhoea and
dysentery are each and all catarrh
of the bowels. Catarrh is the only
correct: name for these affections.
Pe-ru-na is an absolute specitio for
these ailments, which are so com
mon in summer. Dr. Hartman, in
a praotice of over forty years, never
lost a single case of cholera infan
tum, dyeentary, diarrhoea, or .chol
era morbus, and his only reinedy
waa Pe-ru-na. ' Those desiring
further particulars should send for
a free copy of "Summer Catarrh."
