Mr. Blaine may w rite a dozen arti-
cles to the magazines criticisin Presi-
dent Cleveland but he w ill not be able
to convince the majority of the voters
that the President has not given them
the best a demonistration ofpublic
affairs that the country has had for a
quarter of a century. Providence
The New York Graphic says Pres-
ident Cleveland has given his opinion

question but the Republican candi-
date for the presidency has not yet

The late Charles Crocker of San
3'rancisco is said to have felt a per-
sonal interest in the employes of the
roads which he owned. A story is
told of an accident in which a fireman
met his death. Mr. Croekerwas great-
ly disturbed and when one of the of-
ficers of the road told him that it was
no use worrying over such things
which were happening with more or
less frequency all the time he looked
up and replied vehemently ; "But
my God man one of our boys was
killed and I could not get that out of
A loan of $5000000 has been prac-
tically negotiated in England toward
the completion of the great tunnel
under the Hudson river at New York
city. Since May 1S73 when the
company was incorporated about
$2000000 has been expended for
tunnel work. It is a twin tunnel and
the excavations have progressed about
2000 feet and 700 feet from New
Jersey and New York shores respec-
tively. It is thought two years will be
required to complete the most ad-
vanced underground channel and it is
estimated that $10000000 will cover
the cost of the tunnel exclusive of ap-
proaches. On Saturday evening last at a point
near the town ot Montgomery Da-
viess county 111. John Brady a
wealthy and respected farmer was en-
gaged in playing" a friendly game of
euchre at his own house with a
neighbor named Carpenter. Both
men sat alone in a room while the
family was absent for the evening. Jt
was about 9 o'clock and Brady had
just said: "That is my trick." He
extended his hand to take it but the
act was never finished. Almost sim-
ultaneously two shots were fired
through the open window by some un-
known parties. Brady threw up his
hands scattered the cards and fell
prostrate upon the floor dyintr in-
stantly. The ball o( the midnight as-
sassin penetrated his brain. Carpen-
ter was shot in the mouth knocking
out two 'front teeth the ball coming
out of the jaw beneath the ear. He
is thought to be in a dying condition.
As Brady had been seen that even-
ing counting a large sum of money
on his porch it is supposed that the
assasins were bent on robbery. As it
turned out they fled before securing
Rev. Henry Ihowizi a prominent
rabbi now in Philadelphia but recent
ly from Minneapolis Minn. is bent
upon a reform in the matter of syna
gogue singing. He is opposed to a
paid choir and is making a strong ef-
fort to have his congregation adopt
congregational singing. His idea is
to begin by having the children of the
congregation taught to sing and then
inducing the older persons to join in.
He followed out this plan in his syna-
gogue in Minneapolis and carried it to
very successful results. "This idea is
no innovation" says Dr. Iliowizi "but
is simply a return to the original style
of worship by the Jews. I will create
a sentiment in its favor in Philadelphia
and there cannot possibly be any op
position to it. I want to have every-
body in the congregation oung and
old boys and girls join in singing
nraises to God and I will have it."

nothing is so soothing to the face and
hands as the water from both the pulp

Mrs. Mary A. Bell of West Thirty-
