oirruptly used,) mid the powerful
inlluencu of England, the grand old
ropulillcan party "overcame the
world, the flesh, the devil," the
democratic party and Great Britain.
The victory was fairly and honest
ly won, and It has come to stay for
many years hence. The democrat
ic party with its pernicious free
trade policy has been duly weighed
in the balanco of Public Opinion
and found to bo sadly wanting. Tt
has after four years ot trial, been
most decidedly repudiated by the
people, who are the sovereigns of
this Cheat Republic. This will is
a slick oasii;
Tiiuusi: ei: monky in i:i.i:ctions.
The democratic papers mo unwil
ling to admit that their party was
fairly beaten upon the issue made by
President Cleveland and the Mills
Bill on tho tarifl'-that is: Protec
tion vs. Free Trade; but they
claim that it was the extravagant
and corrupt use of money by the Re
publican National Committee, that
accomplished their defeat. This is
about as near tho' truth as most of
their other claims, the charge that
heavy contributions were levied up
on all tho protected Industries and
manufacturers of tho country, by
which vast sums were raised and
corruptly expended by tho republi
cans not it word of which is true.
Tho democrats expended at least
three dollars to tho lepublicaus one,
tho greater part of which was used
in purchasing votes in tho largo
cities. Fifty-thousand dollars was
bent to Chicago, u republican city,
on tho eve of election by tho Na
tional Democratic Connnltte, and
tho result was that city was carried
for Cleveland and Palmer by a largo
majority. Aiitwas in Chicago, so
it was in many other largo cities in
tho Hast and in tho West, and nota
bly San Francisco. The democrats
concentrated their efforts and spent
their money freely in tho large
cities wheiu tho voters mo massed,
and more accessible and where are
to bo found the largest "Holding"
population that is always In the
market, mid for sale to the highest
bidder. It is In tho large cities that
most of the manufactories ate loca
ted, and wheio protection ought to
bo the strongest ai. d is if allowed
free expression, uneorrupted and
unbiased by tho uso of whisky and
money. Hut it was in these very
cities the live traders spent most of
their money and made their largest
gains. Tho tranquil, reading,
thinking, intelligent farmers, whom
tho fieo traders tried to make be-
lhivo wcie bearing all tho burdens of
tho protective taritl "tax" without
enjoying any of its beuellts, is
wheio tho lepubllean protective
policy made tho largest gains and
polled the greatest majorities for
Ilariison. They decided most em
phatically that the taritl Is not a
lax, and that it Is not a burden upon
tho agriculturists. Tho latter class
were never better read up and pos
ted on (lie tarlir than they are to
day. Most of tho republican cam
paign fund was .spent In supplying
tho people with taritl' literature.
Tons upon tons, and millions of
copies of tracts on tho taritl' were
scattered broadcast over tho coun
try and proved to Iks seed sown upon
good ground, lles'des tho ablest
and most eloquent speakers were
employed to discuss tho groat Issues

ARE AMERICAN8 DYSPEPTIC
Wlint a Prominent English rhydetan
8oy of Onr Dwell In'-Cttlea, ' ' '
A prominent English tihYsfcfaVi 'has Tr
cently proved, to "his own satisfaction "at
least, that the dwellers In AT)heric&hftri&
are generally netirotics 'ana dyspeptics.
First of all, he says, the Puritans "who
emigrated to New England Were Charac
terized by a neurotic temperament, for
Puritanism was 'largely a dlseaso of tho
biliary duct. And so ever slnco It has
been tho neurotic member of tho English
family who has grown dissatisfied with
the conditions of life in tho old country,
and has emigrated either to Australia or
America. On the other hand, tho beef
eating squlro type of Englishman, being
content with things as they are, has
staved at home.
lint this 13 not all. The climate and the
peculiar conditions of life that exist in
this country have developed and intensi
fied tills oiiginal neurotic type, until It
ma) now bo faiily called the American
type, and is Indeed so lccognliiedtliiough
out Europe. This typo exists In Its most
perfect form In the lartcr American cities.
For it is the neurot.c member of the
family who Is mo-a inclined to "kick''
against the monotonous life of tho coun
try. All such men diift into cities, wheie
they can find an outlet for their energetic
and often splenetic unrest. In their c.ise
also tho ncuiotic tendency Is increased by
their envhonment. They becomo small in
phj In,uc, nnd, ns n rule, are chronic dys
peptics. Their children are apt to suc
cumb to tho maladies o childhood. The
men arc Kind and indulgent to their fami
lies, but i, i i table. Tho women are bright,
quick w Uteri, spirituelle, but restless.
They arc fond of lrUng gicgnrions lives,
nnd spend a large portion of their tlmo in
relating to each other tho evidences of
their physical w eakness. And so in three
generations at most these highly devel
oped but diseased men and women die
out, literally consumed by the file of their
own abnormal vitality.
Doubtless the generalizations of this
English physician are too sweeping. It is
not true that only tho men of a neurotic
or nervous temperament come from the
country into American cities. Indeed, it
is quito tho other way. Tho vitality of
our cities Is steadily replenished by the
thousands of strong limbed and clear
headed country boys, who nro constantly
pouring Into them, nnd whoso nerves of
steel enable tliam to withstand the terrible
3trnin of city life for years. But it Is
undoubtedly truo that our cities do tend
to produco a highly nervous typo of man
and woman, with no stomach to speak of
and a much impaired liver. But with the
Increase of wealth and luxury this type
will doubtless disappear. Even now tho
lean, dyspeptic American, with a hungry
look of conquest in his eyes, is rapidly giv
ing place to the jolly, well fed, easy going

and destiny, can afford to tako life as it

is unique in many ways among tho holy
places of tho Hindoos, attracts tho largest
number of pilgrims from all parts cf
India. -Tho shiiuo of Jagnnnntli, com
monly called Juggernaut literally the
Lord of the Universe stands on tho coast
sf Orissn, amid level, burning Bands; and
to tlioso who Bail up and down tho Bay of
Bengal it appears in tho distanco liko a
vast black obelisk. It is built of hugo
nl cks of granite, transported with in
crediblo labor from tho neighboring
mountains, nnd consists of a grotesquo
pyramidlcal structure about 350 feet iu
height aud a spacious nrea inclosed by a
lofty wall. Around the wall on the ln
cldo thero runs a gnlh'ry supported by a
double rango of pillars and forming 270
arcades. The four faces of tho pyramid
nro covered with sculptured figures of dei
ties, and its apex is crowned with orna
ments of gilt copper, which flash and glit
ter in stio sun.
The interior of this stupendous struct
ure, which is in perpetual darkness, is
lighted up by 100 lamps, burniug day and
night iu front ot the idol. The imago is
inudo of wood, thickly painted and ro
newed every three j ears, when tho orig
inal bones of the deified hero, Krishna,
nro removed by a Brahmin from tho inside
of tho old idol to that of the new one.
Tho priest, during this awful operation,
covers his eyes, lost tho sight of such mys
terious i ellcs should consume, him like
lightning. This priestly terror, of course,
represses in tho minds of th-j worshipers

The Women of India.
The women In towns nnd villages above
tho coollo class raiely bhow their faces and
tho letter clashes never. Somo travelers
speak of their peeping nt one from their
veils or from bold. id their latticed win
dows. From what I have seen and can
learn from people who liavo long lived
here such coquetries are only Indulged in
by Nautch girls (dancing girls) of a low
order, or by a btlll worse class. Tho edu
cation of n woman is such that sho hon
estly thinks herself degraded should she
permit her face to bo seen by n man;
rarely is it done, even to n fntherdn-lnw
or Inothor-in-law, especially if the brother-in-law
be older than her husband.
A well to do Hindoo, with six brothers,
nil younger than himself, told mo he had
seldom over seen tho face of n single ono
of his sisters-in-law, and when he bad
tlono so it was under peculiar circum
stances religiously permissible. This
thing Is not simply n social custom, but it
Is mixed up with their religious require
ments. Religion has a very powerful
hold even on the men, who nro generally
more or less educated, for now common
schools are throughout the country. But
tho women nro wholly uneducated ex
cept in religious rites and duties. With
them thoir religion Is all despotic nnd
now erful, lending thorn In tho past to tho
burning piles of thoir doad husbands.
