There is weeping and wailing
among the school children of New Or-
leans as the result of an order issued
by the school board which has an-
nounced that the traditionary Christ-
mas holidays will not be allowed this
year and that the usual rest days will
be lopped off. This action was taken
by the board on the theory that the
scholars were losing too much time.
Year before last six weeks and last
year two weeks were lost owing to
quarantine. A wholesale revolt of the
children is expected. They insist on
having the usual yuletide holidays.

It is reported from Chicago that
the union stock yards and allied in-
terests have on foot a plan to hold in
Chicago about next November an in-

which to that industry will be what
the world's fair was to all industries.
The promoters claim that the co-opera- thing from Texas to Pennsylvania next
marked feelingly that he only had ten
employes and if he dismissed five per
cent he didn't know what he'd do with
the remaining half man nor how he'd
fill the vacancy created fractional peo
ple being scarce in his town. Another
felt that it would not be a good thing
to introduce vulgar fractions among
his employes. So betwixt them all
Tucker of Toledo was beaten.

atelier of a leader in the movement to
see what his sign "Aseptic Barbering"
meant. I didn't find out clearly but it
seemed that the shaving mug was
washed out after each-patient. The
arti&t in attendance was of the opinion
that no special care of razor shears or
brush was necessary. He didn't look

According to a dispatch to the St
Louis Globe-Democrat the worst is
yet to come in the most bitterpolitical
contest Kentuckythas ever-witnessed
the effort of 'Senator Goebel to usurp
the functions of governor and the ef
fort f the republicans to prevent it
and seat Attorney General Taylor
whose election by a plurality approxi
mating 50C0 is conceded by all fair-
minded democrats. Goebel's hope now
rests with the Etate board of election
commissioners which will convene at
Frankfort Nov. 27. The dispatch con-
cludes with these ominous words:
"Goebel may occupy the governor's
chair but there may be blood upon it.
The manhood of Kentucky may rise up
against bim. Desperate designing
selfish without honor it is expected
that Goebel will attempt by foul
means or means more foul to assume
office. Kentucky waits with halting
breath such an attempt. It may
mean only disorder it may mean only
bloodshed; but it may mean revolu-
tion." Goebel is said to be a nervous wreck
as a result of the campaign.

i nave seen samples or tne new
Nernst lamp which is claimed to be
tne coming electric light. It is a
lamp something between the two com
mon types the arc light and the little
incandescent bulb lamp and it lights
with a matcb. The arc lights give too
much light and the incandescents are
seldom made to give more than 32
candles but the Nernst can give any
thing intermediate. In appearance
the new lamp consists of a U-shaped
white thread or rod clamped between
supports and out in free air. The rod
is not made of carbon but is porcelain

This has been a poor week for con-
ventions inj Washington. There have
been only three that I notioed: The
national convention of postmasters the

jects.discussed were unusually weighty
but no definite conclusion is reported.
The postmasters finally adjourned to
day t to meet next in Peoria. They
passed a resolution recommending
some form of postal note for trans-
mitting small amounts through the
mails and a number of other measures
looking to the good of the service.
They refused to recommend anything
regarding the civil service law to the
president though discussing it quite
thoroughly. Most of the members are
