Hon. William McKinley has
been elected to the presidency of
the United State bv a large ma- j
, . . . ' n j ;
jority of the electoral college andj
of the popular vote, e have 1
been promised many gnod things.
v . 'r ,.,..
If those promise are but nail tul-
filled we will be the most prosper-
' k 1K f,.v
ous nation on the globe toduj.
The avenues of business will be

WlllfiU With life and Vigor the
dogged artrie of trade. The meek
face of the sbeepwil! gladden with
' , , -.j
the knowledge that wool win ,
greatly increase in value. Our j
wheat will no longer chase ; th.j
elusive dollar marc, but Will at ;
once be worth one hundred cents.

Hops will not give the sparkle to
the beet glass tor less man meniY
cents a pound, cash. Laborers'
r , I
will receive their two dollars and a
half per day and carpenters will I
j -if l
not drive a nail for lesB than three
or four dollars for eight hours. I
These and many other blessings j
. ... , !
too numerous to mention will be ,
ehoc.ered upon us immediately if i
not sooner. Trade, commerce and ;
.,, ... i
manufactures will not wait for vhe
4th of next March, out will at once
bgin to rush with new life, be
cause Mr. McKinley is elected.
We have been promised all these
blessings. We cannot wait for
f i kl,
years, nor months, for these bless-.
ings. They were promised to come
as soon as confidence was restored.
The day of our salvation is at hand.
Let the faithful be rewarded for
their faith at once, and let the
doubting ones be silenced forever
in a deluge of prosperity. If not.,
then the apostles of the gold stand
ard have taught us unwisely to
worship the golden image and we
are still in the pood.
The power of great corporations
is alarming. All of them support-
ed Mr. McKinley and did much ,
. :n
for his flection. The people will
have four vears in which to think
over the evil influence of these
giant political manipulators in
politics. For the country's sake,
we hope that our next president
will gather enough c iurage be
tween now and the 4th of March
to bring these proud dictators
within the pale of the law. If he
will only do it, his claim to great
ness will be established.
The people of tbe United States
. . , " -, i
will never be satu-fied until, silver
is restored to its rightful place j
along Side of gold. There will
6 e !
never be a full revival of business i
until this is done. A majority of 1
., , , ., . i
the people of the union are at
heart iu favor of silver, but party
feeling ran too high for party lines !
to be tboroughly broken in this j
election. Four years heiu, the:
same old contest will again be j
waged. j

Americans within fifty miles of them.
They arc in a jpntry where every man
sleeps with one eye open and his right
hand near his six-shooter. There is
necessity for precaution. Both above
and below Boqoillas are bands of rene

provocation. They are barbarians. A

a man named Ayrcs and shot him dead.

It requires more fores to sound a note
gently on a piano than to lift the lid of
a kettle. A German composer has fig
ured that the minimum pressure of the
finger playing pianissimo is equal to
one hundred and ten grams a quarter
of a nonnd. Few kettle lidn weio-h
more tha two ounces, says the Musical
The German's calculations are easy
to verify if one takes a small handful
of coins and piles them on a key of the
piano. When a sufficient qnantity is
piled on to make a note sound they may
then be weighed and these figures will
be found to be true.

maeh forceVnecded. At times
a force of six pounds is thrown upon a
single key to produce a solitary effect.
With chords the force is generally
spread over the various notes sounded
simultaneously, though a greater out
put of force is undoubtedly expended.
This is what gives pianists the wonder
ful strength in their fingers so often
commented on. A story used to be told
of Faderewski that he could crack a
pane of French plate glass half an inch
thick merely by placing one hand upon j
it. as if upon a piano keyboard, and j
striking sharply with his middle finger.
Chopin's last study in C minor has a
passage which takes two minutes and
j five seconds to play. The total pres-! ?

average 'tonnage" of an hour's piano

twelve to eighty-four tons. j

Dispensing, according to the condi
tions of his wager, with railway trains,
ocean steamers, hone, mules and don
keys, sedans and palanquins, the valor
ous Macdade, says the London Tele
graph, is bound to wear out an enor
mous amount of shoe leather, unless,
indeed, he does as many more or less
distinguished pedestrians have done be
fore him travel barefoot. An English
tramp, unencumbered with shoes, will
do his twenty miles a day blithely,
and if he continued to trudge six davs
in every week resting, of course, in
some kindly union workhouse on the
Sabbath he would have walked six
thousand two hundred and forty
miles in the course ot twelve months.
It is, however, more than double
that distance from Alexandria to
the antipodes, and as he is bound
not to avail himself of any
of the ordinary facilities of travel. Mac
dade must go, perforce, a good deal out
of his way at various points of his jour
ney; thus he will have to walk much
more than twenty miles a day. Keek
ing continually tor the dry land, he
may have to wander through Russia
and Crim Tartary into China, and he
may even make the acquaintance of the
north pole. IVtes he take any money
with him. or will he adopt one of the
most ancient and, according to Charles
Lamb, one of the most honorable of '
callings, and beg his way around the
world? In any case, he has plenty of
difficulties before him, even if the ab
sence of cash enables him, like the !
traveler in the Latin adage, to sing in
the presence of thieves. There may be
lions in the path, to say nothing of
tigers, bears, wolves and rattlesnakes.
There may be fevers and agues; there
may be sunstroke, and there may be
frostbite. However, there are some
daring spirits in whose dictionary the
word "impossible" is not written", and
among these exceptional individuals
may be Mr. William Macdade.

She was the pride of the faculty and
the pet of the class a girl who grap-
nled with limrilhins nnlv In Inr ,),..,
low, and whose Latin and Greek were '
as perfect as could be desired, says liie
New York Sun. All sorts of brilliant
things were expected of her af tor she
left college.' The president said that
she had one of the finest minds the col
lege had ever had the privilege of cul
tivating. The literature professor
prophesied that she would make a shin
ing place for herself in literature. The
professor of mathematics shed tears at
the thought of her absence from his
class. As for the girls, her fellow
students, they each and all regarded
her as a sort of George Eliot and Maria
Mitchell rolled into one. And. in spite
of these many fond hopes and bright
predictions, the girl, immediately after
she was graduated, married. Ten years
later her class met for a reunion. The
members made it a sort of experience
meeting. Each arose and told what
had happened during the interval since
they had last met. One had won re
nown in music another in philanthrop
ic fields. Another had written her
heart out in verse, and a fourth had be
come a successful teacher. At last tt '
was the turn of the girl with a mind.
Everybody held her breath as she arose
and began: "Girls. 1, too. have not been
idle. During all these years I have
won a name like the rest of you. 2 am
known in the city where I dwell as the
woman who averages nine cooks a

unknown capital of the group. The
independent blue flag, with the whi-.e
hawk and the nine stars, displayed by
tbe islanders of San Miguel when the
good news came from LisbDa. contains
a sort of brief history of the group.
It tells there are nine islands sown
thick in the blue midoccan. and that
the emblematic hawk reminds the
world that the name Acor. 1'ort'iruese
for hawk, was conferred on tiic Uiaads
because of the great number of those
birds found there by the navigator sent
