No wonder that the czar of Russia

been such a great while ago that
Dr. Dorset was a victim of unmerited
abuse and denunciation even at the

In this country impecunious
fortune-hunters who desire to strike
it rich by marrying usually go to the
country or city assessment rolls to
select wives. Over in certain parts
of Russia it is only necessary to con-
sult the hotel register for all needed
information. A Russian newspaper
published at Orel near Moscow says
a widow and daughter arrived at the
hotel de l'Europe not long ago and
registered as follows: "Merchant
widow from Dmif rowsk accompanied
by her unmarried daughter Jasha

hair and blue eyes turned-up nose

satan cannot hold him up on his

The Home Market club of Boston
the great high tariff exponent and
direct antipode of the Cobden club

resolution to the effect that the im
position of a duty on hides would
be superlatively unwise. "Which
shows that this great adversary of
free trade is as much characterized
by little narrow-minded selfishness
as anybody else or any other cor
poration whose interests are affect-

are the chief things for. which Bos
