HONEST JOHN DILLON.
The New Leader of the Irish Parlla
John Dillon, who has Just been elect
ed chairman of the Irish parliamentary
' party, Is not only an able parliamenta
rian and politician, but a qualified phy
sician and surgeon. His father was
John Blake Dillon, of Dublin, a fam
ous barrister. Mr. Dillon inherited his
rare power of oratory from his father,
who was likewise a patriotic M. P.,
sitting for Tlpperary In 1865-66. Mr.
Dillon's mother was Adelaide Hart
He was born In 1851, and was gradu-
ated from the Catholic University of
Dublin. He is also a licentiate of the
Royal College of Surgeons, of Ireland.
He was first sent to parliament In 1880,
when he sat for Tlpperary. In 1885 he
. was elected from East Mayo. He was
re-elected In 1892. . He has a good face.
An anecdote relates how a noted art-
: 1st painted that face in a West End
London church panel as the counte
nance of St. John, where it Is admired
to-day for its serene beauty. Mr. Dil
lon Is a great lover of books. His
home In North Great George's street,
Dublin, has a library rich In rare Hlber-
nlana and, Indeed, In many valuable
and" interesting old volumes picked up
by their owner through many years of
patient search. The neighborhood In
which he lives was a favorite one with
the members of the Irish parliament.
It would be hard to Imagine a man of
' Mr. Dillon's Imaginative nature living
in any' but an ancient house with his
torical associations. ' At his best Mr.
Dillon Is as fine a speaker as any man
In his party. But he lacks constancy.
He has neither the steadiness of Healy
. nor the readiness of Sexton. His sen
tences are sometimes broken and dis
jointed. But If his feelings are strong
ly moved there Is a simple strength
about what he says that;' taken wltirhis
manner, makes him second to none In
Impresslveness. ' He has long been af
fectionately known as Honest John
Geographies to Blame.
Ask any hundred English men, wom
en or children what is the name of the
capital of . Russia, and every one of
them will reply, "St. Petersburg." It
may be a small matter, bnt in point
of faot the proper name is "Peters
burg.". The English are the only folk
who insist upon the "Saint." The city
was founded by Peter the Great, and is
named after him. It is quite true that
Peter was one of the most extraordinary
men that ever filled a throne, but no
one would have been morn astounded
than himself at being dubbed a saint.
He neither lived nor died in the odor of
sanctity, and it is bard to find out how
it became the English fashion to mis
call the splendid town he founded.

as backache, a crick in the back, but by
whatever name it may be known, and how
ever bad it may be, 10 minutes vigorous
rubbing with St. Jacobs Oil on the afflicted
part will drive out the trouble and com
pletely restore. It is a thing so easily
caught, it may be wondered at why there
is not more of it, but because it is so easily
cured by St. Jacobs Oil may be the very
reason that we hear so little of it.

A COMING MAN. .
John K. Coven, the New President
of the Batimore and Ohio.
John K. Cowen, member of Congress
from the Fourth Maryland district, who
was recently elected to the presidency
of the Baltimore ana Ohio Railroad,
has been prominent in the politics of
his State for many years. He Is said
to be In close contact with President
Cleveland, and It is argued that in view
of this fact and the political enmity
existing between Mr. Cowen and Sena
tor Gorman, Mr. Cowen's selection as
president of the Baltimore and Ohio
has no little political significance,
Mr. Cowed was born in Ohio about
55 years ago. He was graduated from
Princeton College, at which Institution
he formed an Intimate acquaintance
with Robert Garrett, which is responsi
ble for Mr. Cowen's present influential
position. The intimacy was continued
after the young men left college, and
at the suggestion of his father, John
W. Garrett, then at the head of the Bal
timore and Ohio road, Mr. Garrett In

A manufacturer of tombstones In a
flourishing provincial town one day re
ceived a call from a customer who
wished to buy a stone for his mother's
grave. After looking anxiously about
for some time and making numerous
remarks as to his mother's taste he
finally flx-ecf his gaze upon a stont
which the stone-cutter had prepared
for another person,
"I like this one," he said, decidedly;
"I'll take this."
"But that belongs to another man,"
remonstrated the stonecutter, "and It
has the name 'Francis' cut on It, you
see; that wouldn't do for your mother."
"Oh, yes, it would," responded the
countryman. "Mother couldn't read;
and besides," ha added, as he saw the
stonecutter's expression, "she'd like it
all the better if, she coufd read, for
Francis was always a favorite name
of hers, anyhow."
The story is suggestive of one told of
a London tradesman suddenly grown
rich, who, having set up his carriage
In great state, went to a harnessmaker
to have a silver letter put on the blind
ers of his horses.
"What is the Initial?" asked the har
nessmaker. "The what?" said the rich man, look
J'What letter shall I put on?" inquired
the harnessmaker, suppressing his
amusement. . .'
"Well, I hadn't quite made up my

as any, isn't It?" (
