SHARP CRITICIS3I ON .MAINE FOLKS.
The men here never close a door, a
sure indication ot long residence in
saw-mills. In all dining rooms there
is the ever-present odor of fned cod
fish or mackerel. The Esquimau
eats his seal grease raw; the native
of Maine burns his bear grease and
cooks his victuals in it, thu3 produc
ing an odor which is never forgotten.
A crowded railroad car has the stench
of tho kitchen. The social habits
are queer. Profanity seems to be the
rule in conversation. X have heard
more profane swearing here in two
days than I heard in Leadville in
two weeks. I now realize the 'force
of the remark that extremes meet.
The habits and peculiarities of the
extreme south and extremo north of
the Union are the same. These ex
tremes cannot meet because the great
conservative population of tho mid
dle states is between them, but they
can stand at a distance and yell,
'You're anotherP' over the gulf which
separates them. The bigoted south
erner is not a whit worse than the
bigoted New Englander. The ruling
classes of JNew England do not have
to kill the working classes to control
their suffrages; they "influence" them
in the same way that a southern man
once told me he influenced the votes
of his negroes "they make it a ques
tion of meat and bread.'
Tho strong point with the New
Englander is his religion, and here
again is ho like tho. extreme south
erner, lveligion and morals are dif
ferent qualities. They wili fight like
h -1 for their religious belief, but
each man's morals are his private af
fairs. He can practice what he
pleases if he only believes right, but
mainly he must believe in some style
of religion, and as communities fall
into the groovo they generally adopt
the same creed, and, while they ad
vocate liberty of conscience, with
them it means liberty to believe as
they de: Down south a man can be
anything he likes in politics if he
votes as tho people of the neighbor
hood do. Up here a mau can be
anything in morals if he is only a
professor of some kind of religious
Physically the New England people
do not differ from those of the west
more than might bo expected in com
paring a well-fed population with one
that has had to rough it on fish, bear,
beans and granite. The men arc aver
age good looking. I can now under
stand why the women of this section
want a law prohibiting the sale of
liquor and the suppression of such
places as might offer some diversion
to the men. If there is no other
place to go and nothing else to look
at, then tho men are forced to stay at
home and look at the women. Per
haps these women make up in other
qualities what they lack in looks. If
thsy don't, Lord pity the poor devils
who cannot get away from the stone
At Creston, Iowa, there are a large
number of the seefknown as Advent-
ists. There nr a nnmlwr nt fnrmltos
of them and they are very devout. In
luu yjwu ol tresion lives tne xiari
family, consisting of twelve members.
The Karls stand well and several of
the men are railroaders, but most in
tense believers in the faith. Thev
fully believed that the world would
close upon January 4th and made all
arrangements to that end, having
clothing made and on the morning of
the -4th donned funeral habiliments
and spent the day praying, singing
and reading the Bible and waiting
for the crash, They refused to leave
the house or eat or prepare anything
to eat. The crash didn't come, but
they believed it would and remained
ready to receive the bridegroom. They
now believe a sacrifice is necessary,
that their God demands a ransom,
and made arrangements to offer up a
daughter, a girl about sixteen, Katie
Karl, as an offering to their God, who
is angry and will not carry out his
desires until the girl, or some other
pure and Binless human being is
killed. Tho neighbors made com
plaint, but nothing could bo done.
Polioemen are stationed about tho
house to prevent the cold-blooded
murder of the girl which is feared, as
several attempts to knife her have
been made by the father. The men
won't work, nor will they permit the
women to, and the entire sect, fully
fifty, are almost starved to death
from watching, waiting and fasting.
They are about dead, and cannot
hold out many days. The people are
greatly worked up about such carry
ings ou and an effort will be made to
A Fact Fixed.
The autograph statement of Dr.
Samuel K. Cox, D. D., Practical,
Analytical Chemist, Washington, D.

systems instinctively shrink from the
useof morphia and opium, and es
pecially to mothers, who justly dread
the evil, and, at times, fatal effects of
these dnngerous drugs, the Red Star
Cough Cure must prove a boon. It is
not only entirely free from all opiates,

THE CLAYTON-15ULWEU TREATY.
"Washikgtox, Feb. 3. There is in
many minds a desire to know why the
Clayton-Bulwer treaty was ever nego
tiated, if, as now appears from so
many quarters, there is a demand for
its modification or its annulment.
"To understand it fully," said a prom
inent man in public life, "it is neces
sary to recur to the condition of af
fairs in Central Ameica and on the
isthmus of Panama at that period.
Ccoval with our conquest of territory
from Mexico, Mr. Buchanan, who
was secretary of state under Mr.
Polk's administration, concluded a
treaty with New Granada, now known
as the United States of Colombia, in
regard to the rights of the United
Stat 63 at tho isthmus. It is commouly
known as the Bidlac treaty, from the
name of the minister who negotiated
it The English were jealous of this
treaty as foreshadowing a fixed
determination on the part
of our government to acquire
territory in Central America.
At the same time England was push
ing from tho Mosquito coast and
British Honduras, and threatening
the acquisition of large portions of
Central America. It was at this time,
too, that the south was under full
headway of territorial acquisition,
stimulated by the splendid acquire
ment of New Mexico."
A Pittsbunr Sciwitiun.
PrrrsBUEO, Feb. 3. An afternoon
paper publishes a long article going
to show there is a smoldering volcano
ready to break forth at any moment in
this city of socialists, in large numbers
and supplied with explosives. It says
two men famous all over the country,
and millionaires, have furnished large
sums of monoy to socialists. The
movement is against mill owners and
other capitalists, several of whom have
been warjied. In tho movement are
German, Russian, Italian, Swedish,
Swiss and French socialists, and Irish
dynamiters. Heavy English interests
can be reached here by Irish dynamit
ers. Thousands ot men now idle are
emboldened by the successful Lon
don explosions. Tho paper adds;
"This sonnds sensational, but it is
truo aud known to be true by persons
with interests at stake." The article
has created tho greatest excitement
among all classes of people.
London, Feb. 3. Advices from
Hong Kong state that only three
French vessels are now engaged in
the blockade of tho southwest coast
of Formosa. Tho French arc destroy
ing hundreds of fishing an d trading
crafts, killing crews or sending them
to Keluug. The inhabitants of Hong
Kong are indignant that such opera
tions will be allowed.
New Yokk, Feb. 3. Among the
World's city gossip is the follewing:
"Not less than three gentlemen during
the current week have. spoken in a
maroly incidental way of the personal
danger which they conceive surrounds
President-elect Cleveland, Ono was
General Edward M. McCook, and an

Cairo, Feb. 3. Major Chctmside
has arrived here. The Arabs made
an attack upon the convoy sent to
Kassala and a stubborn fight ensued,
resulting in tho repulse of the Arabs,
who left 500 dead upon tho field.
Tho convoy lost fifty men killed.
Five thousand troops will be sent to

Paris, Feb. 3. Admiral Courbet
telegraphed tho war office to-day that
the French forces, after a severe fight
carried the Chinese works command
ing the Kelung mines. He states
that the French troops lost 9 killed
and 53 wounded during the engage
ment Tho Chinese loss was heavy.
Paris, Feb. 3. Advices here state
that Generals De Lisle and Negrier
are advancing upon Langson from
different directions, each in command
6f a column of 6,000 troops.
Paris, Feb. 3. It is reported hero
