Vest's Theory.
Washington, Aug. 25. Senator
Vest sent to the clerk's desk and had
read a communication from the director
of the mint, giylng statistics of the
quantity of silver bullion purchased
since 1873, the date of the Bland-Alli
son act, 'its cost, amount coined, etc.
Vest summed up all these figures to
show that If all Bllver dollars and
subsidiary sliver were recoined at ratio
proposed in bis bill (20 to 1) there still
will be a profit to the treasury on the
whole of silver transactions since 1873
of oyer fifteen and a quarter mlllior.
He intimated pretty broadly that Car
lisle in his letter to Senator Voorhees
on the same subject had not treated
the subject fairly. Hill, of New York,
then delivered his speech.

Senator Hill Speaks.
Washington, Aug. 25. The existing
fluanolal disturbance Hill found was
attrlbuteablo to three distinct causes.
First, it was the natural Inevitable result
of many ycara of real or ficticious pros
perity. Second, some portion of present
panlo could be traced to a concerted ef
fort on part of monomentalllsts to pro
duce it In order to discredit silver.
Third, the silver purchase law, Hill did
not bellovo tbe simple repeal of the
Sherman law wowd at once restore
abundant prosperity, but that many
years will be required to recover from
the present disturbance. He was a bi
metalllst and stood for free colnago at
n proper ratio.
his remedy.
The permanent remedy for our finan
cial difficulty was t? return to the bi
metallism that existed prior to 1873. Ho
favored an Increase of National bank
circulation as proposed in the pending
bill. Continuing, he said the question
of ratio if changed at all should not
be enlarged but diminished to 15 to 1.
He should refuse to follow In the foot
dteps of any administration that sought
to place v.he Democratic party In a false
position and lead It into the camp of
tbe enemy. The Sherman law should
be repealed as a measure of temporary
relief. NexJ. December a permanent
system Bhould be considered. He
would cheerfully vote for repeal, "un
awed by power and uncorrupted by
federal patronage."
A Girl With a Curling Iron Benders
Thousands Homeless.
Ciiicacio, Aug. 25. A fire, which In
extent of territory covered Is the larg
est known In this city for many years,
began In that portion- known ao Bouth
Chicago about 6 o'clock Thursday and
before It wbb brought under control It
had dlstroyed over 200 buildings, mpst-
ly framo residence structures occupied
by worklncraen, and rendered many
hundreds of people honio'css. The fire
started in a three-story brick building
at the corner of 01st street and Supoiior
avenue, occupied us a residence by Wm,
Gilles. It was caused by bis dauguter,
who accidentally upset a lamp while
beating a balrcurllng Iron. From there
it grew rapidly in volume, fanned by a
Kale from the West, and the flames ate
their wav over block after block of
mall residences until It reached tbe
lake. Within two hours after the fire
started It had consumed at least live
blocks of the great Industrial section of
tbe city. The residents of that portion
of the city were In a panlo second only
to tbe one which characterized the
great fire.
The burned territory is Just north of
the business center of South Chicago
and was given up almost exclusively to
residences. The flro spread. The fears
of the firemen wero well founded and
before the dozens of engines had made
much headway the immense docks of
the Sunday Creek Coal company were
burning. Over 100,000 tons of coal was
stored In these Immense bins and the
fire boat brought to bear all of It pow
erful Btreams In the endeavor to head
oft tbe flames. A few minutes later,
however, tbe A. B. Beck lumber yards
were seen to be burning and now the
real great buttle of tho firemen with
the flumes began, for tbe firemen had
only this time MicceedeJ In concentrat
ing a sufficient number of engines to
begin to make an Impression on the ter
rific fire.
From I his time on tho forces of the
firemen gradually Increased and the
flames were gradually brought under
control. By 12 o'clock the work of tbe
nearly forty engines tnldes the fire-
boats bad told,
Conservative estimate put the sg.

Proofs That the Sun la Uluo.
Some years ago Profewor Langley gave
expression to the idea that tho nun is not
white, but blue, its apparent whiteness, be
ing due principally to the absorptive action
of its own atmosphcro, but In quite an ap
preciable degree to that of our air.
After several years of further research,
tbo professor was able to show that the
sun, although we regard It as white, ii
blue, or at least bluish. lie reasoned In
this way:
It appears to us when Betting that is,
when wo look at It through a long ranga o(
our atmosphere to be red, or orange, or
yellow, according to tho stato of tho air.
When tho sun Is high above tho horizon,
the action of tbe air is similar, but less In
tense, thus making the sun's disk yellower
than it actually Is.
Moreover, the extreme edge of tho disk Is
less bright than the center, although It Is a
fact that just a much llgUtla emitted from
tho former portion as from tho latter. This
can only bo dite to the absorptlvo action of
tho solar atmosphcro upon tho light.
A further proof is given in photographs
of the sun. It will be observed in these
that tho darkening toward tho edgo is dis
tinctly noticeable.
This shows that the rays which produce
tho photograputo Image (principally blue,
indigo and violet) are affected to a far
greater degree by the suu'h atmosphere
than those which form tho ordinary visual
Image of the sun.
Thus, after a scries ot detailed experi
ments, Professor Langley demonstrated tbe
accuracy ot his theory that tho sun is really
blue, its apparent color being tho result of
the absorption exerted by its vapory atmos
phere upon tho ray of light as tuey pascd

It may seem hard that tho man who in
youth has known the pinch of poverty,
who remembers bow tho cut of mutton
with a supply of potatoes and greens scarce
ly sufficed for a vigorous appetite, should
find that In the prosperity of later life an
eight course dinner of delicacies fails to
tempt him and that, nevertheless, his phy
sician warns him thit the attack of gout
from which he Is suffering means that he Is
eating too much and that his diet must be
lowered. Is llfo then never to give satis
faction? Must youth know hunger and old
age satiety t Must tbe poor muscle worker
never bsvo enough food to give energy to
his frame and must the rich Idler bavq so
much to eat that disease is the consequence f
To find tbe happy man, to live according to

gation of the sufferings ot those who want
the means ot life.
One of many splendid examples is that
of a gentleman now In possession of a largo

of 10 shillings a week. He early mado up

Myths About tli Rattler.

destroys anuuiber of traditions about them
For example. It has always been held that
he is a magnanimous enemy and will give
a sort of warning by rattling three times
hefors he strikes. Mr. Moore sayss "I have
Mn a rattlesnake in July lis in the shade
