It loots like an extra seasion of
congress will be called.'
There is a lively contest going
on in Kansas for the sent of Sena

in Washington, or the other who
stumped Oregon in the interest of
the gold bug candidate for presi
deut? Roseburg Review.
Charles R. Crisp, son of ex
speaker Crisp, has been nominated
by the democrats of Georgia to fill
out his father's unexpired term in
congress, and will no doubt be
elected. Mr. Crisp is just 26 years
old and will be one of the young
est members that ever occupied
seat in the national legislature.
It is hoped that the election of
senator at Salem next January will
he accomplished without friction
and loss ot time, lhe state is
actually Buffering for important
legislation and the members
should see that relief is given. The
senatorial question is principally
a war among politicians and how'
ever it may end will not benefit
the common people greatly.'
Palmer and Buckner carried
only one precinct in the United
States, and most romarkable of all
that in Kansas. The place was
Dudly tounship in Haskell county
in the short grass country. In
that township five democrats voted
gold ticket and carried it bygone
plurality. Against this McKinley
and Hobart had four votes, Bryan
and Sewall two votes and Bryan
and Watson one vote. RoBeburg
In speaking of the senatorial
articles published in the metropoli
tan newspapers, a California ex
change says: , "If only one paper
gave such prominence to affairs at
that character, it might be said
that the paper was responsible, but
when they all do it, the indications
are pretty strong' that they have
good business reasons for it. They
lie in the fact that all subscribers
demand it from the -sport who has
his money up to the goody-goody
fellow who won't even read the
headlines until -he is safe within
The loss of fruit this season has
been quite severely felt through
out the valley. Just think of
apples selling at $1.00 per bushel
right here in Oregon, the home of
big red apples. What may now
seem to be a severe hardship may
prove to be a bleesing in disguise,
however. In the first place the
stock of green, canned and dried
fruits on the coast will be pretty
well thinned out. This will leave a
bare market and a good demand
for next year. To meet this de
mand the orchards of Oregon will
be in better condition than ever.
After a year's rest orchards always
yield better. We predict that
with anything like a favorable
spring that the fruit crop next
year will he unusually large, and
that the price will be remuner

There is a new dude in town, and
his name is, Seifl'edin Bey. ; He isl
only 26 years old, and is said to be
the handsomest man in Washing

features and a beautiful complex
ion. In short, he is a diplomatic
Adonis, being attached to the
Turkish Legation in the capacity
of second secretary, Seiffedin Bey
only recently arrived in Washing

gossips say that he has already
captured a number of hearts, but

safely anticipated, however, that
he will be a conspicuous figure in

in tne senate there are now
three candidates for the presidency
of that body. There are: A. J.
Johnson, of Linn county; L. L.
Pattersoryof Marion; Jos. Simon,
of Multnomah; with the chauces
more in favor of the latter than
either of his competitors. Of the
thirty members of the senate, 24
are republicans, one-half being
hold-overs, three democrats and
three populists. The republican
senators will settle the organization
of the Benate in caucus, so that
thirteen votes will be sufficient to
determine who is to preside over
the senate. It will be in the
lower house that the real struggle
to secure organization will be
made. The representatives most
spoken of in connection with the
speakership are Geo. W. Riddle,
Douglas county; Henry X, Benson,
Josephine county; John M. Somers,
Linn county; J. N. Brown, Morrow
county; Jonathan Bourne, jr., of
Multnomah county Ex.
The following is taken from the
Omaha, World Herald: Mirny
farmers in Winside as well a? a
number of business men are burn
ing corn in order to keep warm,
inpreferenceto coal. The princi -
pal reason for this is, of course,
that it is vastly cheaper, for- it
takes only 1i bushels of corn to
make a ton. There is also another
feature to this which is actually
sstonishiug when figured out.
Ten dollars will buy 91 bushels or
11 cent corn. This at 75 pounds
to the bushel, makes 6,825 pounds,
which is equivalent to about the
same amount of coal. The freight
on this coal at 22 cents per 100
would be $14 32, so the railroad
company loses that to begin with
by this substitution of corn for
coal. Thev also lose the freight
on the corn they do not haul to
Chicago, so in $10 worth of corn,
or 91 bushels, at 12 cents freight
per bushel, they lose $10.91. Thus
we reach the remarkable conclus
ion that overy time a resident of
Wayne county burns $10 worth of
corn for fuel, he saves $10 and de
prives the railroad companv of
$25 24 worth of business.
The appearance is that only a
comparatively small number of
people e .er quite realize what an
easy thing success would be if
only they made effective the means
to it which they have already in
hand," writes Rev. Charles H.
Parkburst, D. D., in an article on
"The Young Man on the Fence,"
in the December Ladies' Home
Journal. "Difference among people
in respect to efficiency are far less
an affair of resources than they are
a matter of getting those resources
trained upon a particular point,
and of getting that point so close
to the eye and the heart that it
shall be able to draw those ener
gies along convergent lines, like a
sun-glass that will convert ordi
nary temperature into heat by
contractiiiL' solar lines to a fucus.
It is worth a whole fortune to get
well stirred up, to get all the
energies of one's being drawn out
in warm intensity upon a single
object. A good deal of the success
of even a man like St. Paul is due
to -that posture of mind and of
life which he expressed when he
said, 'This one thing I do.' He
was wholly drawn in under the
power of a single purpose. He
was aglow with that nurnose.
Everything within him as corn-
bustible material, which he laid
upon the crackling bonfire of that
purpose. Success was, therefore,
easy to him."

AN UNLUCKY DEPUTATION.

Mayor With Ludlcroua Conaaquaneee,
On one occasion, while on a journey
through Italy, the pope halted at a small
village. thoiuuabitautB of which resolved
to send some of their principal men as a
imputation to his holiness. The mayor,
who was to head the deputation, pro
posed to present him with some of the
chief produce of the country, consisting
of pineapples, figs and oreaui. It was
accordingly arranged that each member
should carry some figs and cream in sil
ver basins, the pineapples, however, be
tng dispensed with,
- Before rutting out the mayor thus ad
dressed his followers: "'As you do not
know vory well how to conduct your
selves before exalted personuges, you
must watch me closely and do as I do."
The procession was formed, with the
mayor stalkiug majestically in front,
furnished, like his followers, with a bit
sin of figs in his left hand and another
of cream in his right. There was a step
down into the room, but the mayor fail
ed to notice it. He stumbled, and the
shock sent his face and beard into the
cream basin. Trying to recover himself,
he only made matters worse, for he fell
upon his knees, with his hands and basin
under him, and his creamed face raised
imploringly to the holy father.
The members of the deputation, think
ing that this was the proper ceromony to
observe in the presence of such a distin
guished personage, dipped their beards
in the cream, threw away their vessels
and bent down on their knees, at the
some time casting a half inquiring and
confident look at their leader, as if they
meant to say: "You see we are all right,
We have carefully followed your exam
The pope was at erst astonished, but
joon burst into a fit of the must boister
ous laughter, while the attendants,
thinking that the deputation had come
to mock their master, began pelting then,
with the saturated figs.
The mayor hobbled out of the room,
closely followed by his brethren, one of
whom whisperedo him:
"How lucky it is for us that we did
not bring the pineapples! How nicely

Mrs. Stevenson presided at the recent
convention of the Daughters of the Amer
ican Revolution. The wife of the vice
president has evidently never opened the
coven of her husband's authorities on
parliamentary order. Bat she was not
blind to her own defects, so she supplied
them quite easily by engaging as adviser
a mild mannered man, who neverthe
less knew all about overruling and
quashing and laying on the table. This
man sat at Mrs. Stevenson's elbow, told
her what to do next in all cases and scut
tled a number of ships in the Bhape of
resolutions offered by adventurous
The first little incident of this sort was
when a motion was offered by a distin
guished looking woman from the Mount
Vernon chapter. Mrs. Stevenson was
standing at the time, and without wait
ing for any discussion asked the yeas and
nays and got them, too, before, the little
man or any one else had a chance to
draw a long breath. Immediately there
was a storm of opposition. Then the
mild parliamentarian whispered some
thing to Mrs. Stevenson. She pounded
in a ladylike manner with her pretty
gavel and said:
"The question before the congress, la
dies, is the resolution. We can do cue
of two things with it. We can either
we can either what?' she blandly and
frankly asked, turning to the blushing
It was so openly done that it brought
down the house, Mrs. Stevenson laughed,
the little man laughed, everybody laugh
ed, and order was not restored for sev
eral minutes. Then they laid the reso
lution on the table and went gayly on
about their business. New York Sun.
The Gallery God' Applause.
Lawrence Barrett once told me of
conversation he had with Edwin Booth.
The latter bad been congratulated upon
an ovation given him by a crowded
house on the opening night of an engage
ment. "The sweetest music to my ears,"
aid the great tragedian, "is the shout
ing of the boys in the gallery. J know
they are not applauding because I have a
reputation or because they wish to make
a display. They simply give vent to
their natural enthusiasm. When they
lliout, I know that I am giving a good
performance. As for the parquet, it
may clap its hands nt of politeness. A
dramatic critic who had certain notions
as to how a line should be read will ap
plaud if I read it his way; otherwise he
will remain quiet, I can never analyze
the applause of the front rows, but the
gallery is sincere in its likes or dislikes."
A single word sometimes reveals a

Deafness Cannot be Cured
by local applications, as they cannot reach
the diseased portion of the ear. There Is
only one way to cure deafness, and that is
by constitutional remedies Deafness is
caused by an inflamed condition of the
mucous lining of tlie Eustachian Tube,
When tins tube geti inflamed you have a
rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, anil
when It is entirely closed deafness is the
result, and unless the inllummation can be
taken out and this tube restored to it
normal condition, heuring will bo destroy,
edforever: nine cases out often are caused
by catarrh, which is nothing hut an Inflam
ed condition of the mucous surfaces.
