Is there no way of getting Colonel

A small foreign appointment would do
the work. Mr. Harrison, we appeal

The physicians of Galena, Wis., are
puzzled over the case of au infant

township, that has* been asleep ever

child, which is perfectly formed and
of ordinary size, takes nourishment
regularly, but never .wakes.
Considered a Joke.
We take the following from the
proceedings of the house, on Monday:
An attack wts made on the Saturday iiil-
journments in the house to-dny, by Mr.
Snclson, of Meriwether, who introduced the
resolution that hereafter tile house shall not
adjourn for the personal pleasure or benefit
of the members, nml that the members shall
not draw pay for the time of such adjourn
ment. The house took the resolution ns a
joke and tabled it promptly.
This is too serious a matter to joke
about, ns some of the honorable gen
tlemen may learn when they return
to their constituents. Wlmt regal
right have these gentlemen, invested
with a little brief authority, to leave
their posts, days at a time, and still
walk up to the feed trough and dc
maud their four dollars a day? The
people will get tired of this sort of
thing after awhile. They arc tired of
it now. The fact is gradually. oosing
into the heads of some of the people,
that a considerable proportion of the
members go to Atlanta for a summer
frolic, at the expense of the state. No
member should he returned who does
this. Let every s ich a one be, spot
ted. In the meantime we wish Mr.
Snclson well in his efforts to correct
Mr. Snelson was the only man who
voted for his b.ll which looked to a
more punctual attendance of members.
Is it possible there is not another
member in the legislature who thinks
it wrong for the members to go gala-
vantin around over the country, on
free passes, and, at the same time,
drawing $4 per day from the State for
services which they never rendered ?
It is a sad commentary on that body.
A WIFE-BEATER FLOGGED.
Fifteen Lashes Laid on and Now He Must
Serve Five Days.
Baltimore, Md., July 29.—A
Hagerstown (Md.) special to the
American, narrates how an inhuman
brute was to-day served with punish
ment for his crime, the second case of
the kind in Maryland. By the law
of 1882 wife heating is punishable with
at most forty lashes.
C. A. Herbert, of Washington
county, a man of huge frame, on Sat
urdny came there and heat Lis wife,
who is quite petite. He struck her
repeatedly with his fist, and was about
to hrnin her with a chair when his
son and others interfered and had him
arrested. lie was brought here before
Justice E. Brithcr and was sentenced
to fifteen lashes and five days in jail.
This afternoon ho was stripped to the
waist and handcuffed to the iron grat
ing of his cell. A strap hound to n
stout stick had been prepared. One
of the keepers brought the lash down
with n will, hut there was no cry for
mercy. Each blow was accompanied
by a low groan. Herbert had been
before this same magistrate, charged
with the same offense.
The brute ought to have received
the old standard number of lashes,
forty, save one.
“Call me Goorge.”
The annexed story of Washington
is from the Sacramento Bee: Some
time ago a party of gentlemen at
Woodland were discussing the char
acteristics of George Washington, the
father of his country, when Sant Ru-
land, the gorgeousness of whose irnag
ination has made him well known
throughout the State, broke in upon
the conversation: “You are right,
gentlemen,” snid lie, “Washington
was a cold, austere man. He was as
haughty as could be, and a stickler
for formalities. There was never but
one occasion, so far as I have heard,
when he threw aside the usual frigid
ity of his demeanor. That instance
was narrated to me many years ago
by my grandfather, who served under
Washington in the wnr of the revolu
tion. It was the next day after a bat
tle in which the British troops had
been routed. The colonial troops were
drawn up in ranks, nnd Washington
rode down the line, mounted upon
the white charger of which you have
all heard. When he canto up to
where my grandfather was standing,
the latter called out: ‘Why, how do
you do, general?’ Gen. Washington
reined up his charger, dismounted,
threw his arms about my grand
father’s neck and exclaimed: ‘Ro
land, do not call me genera!—call me

Chicago, July 2(1.—Representa

Washington, July 2!t.—The Pres
ident and Secretary Noble are nppre
hensive. that if Corporal Tanner
remains in the pension office, Tie will
insist upon going to the coming G. A.
R. National Encampment, and there
becoming mixed up again in the
service pension scheme, although he
has partially repudiated it. They
think the enthusiastic atmosphere at
the encampment may he too much
for Corporal Tanner. They ntay keep
him here, and they limy not.
Washington, July 29.—Commis
sioner of Internal Revenue Mason has
made the following preliminary report
of the operations of the internal reve
nue service for the fiscal -year ending
June 30 last. The total collections
for the fiscal year just ended were
§130,895,432, nnd this sum has been
duly accounted for ar.d covered into
the treasury. For the fiscal, year
ended June 30, 1888, the total collec
tions were §124,326,475, which com
pared with the collections for the fiscal
year ended June 30, 1889, shows an
increase of §0,508,957.
The cost of collection for the fiscal
year just ended will aggregate about
§4,185,000, exclusive of the amount
expended for the printing of internal
revenue stamps, which is paid from
the appropriation made to the bureau
of engraving and printing. The per
centage of the cost of collection is a
fraction less-than 3.2 per cent., which
is exactly the same as the percentage
of cost for the fiscal year ended June
Memphis, July 29—A heavy wind
and rain storm struck this city iibcut
4:30 o’clock yesterday afternoon, nnd

Ashland, Wis., July 29.—The
severest storm ever known here struck
the city Saturday afternoon. It catne
in the shape of a lowering cloud that
seemed to burst over the city,
accompanied by a tcrrilfic wind
tfhich filled the air with nil kinds of
loose matter. Trees were torn up
and twisted from their roots.
Findlay, O., July 29.—A tremend
ous storm of wind and hail swept over
this city last evening, blowing down
fences, trees, Suthouscsand unfinished
buildings, and doing a great deal ot
damage of a general character. The
wind was terrific and the rainfall tre
mendous, while hail as large as hickory
nuts fell. It was the most destructive
storm of the year and the damage is
Baltimore,Md., July 29. —A special
to the News from Salisbury, Md., says:
“Yesterday between Laurel and Sea

The Salt Trust.
Trusts arc multiplying rapidly.
Every few days a new one is formed
The advantages which trusts possess
for robbing the people are getting to
he well understopd. Not long ago
sugar was selling at a very reasonable
[trice. A sugar trust was formed and
the price of sugar almost immediately
was advanced about two cents a
pound. The sugar reliuers say that
the increased price of sugar is due to
a short sugar crop. It is not general
ly believed that such is the case. It
is believed, however, that the sugar
trust is buying immense quantities of
raw sugar which it is stoiing.
A day or two ago a great salt trust
was formed at Albany, N. Y. It
includes about all the salt producers
in this country ■ and Canada. The
bulk of the money invested in it
belongs to English capitalists. The
trust is capitalized at §15,000,000.
Salt works are purchased at much
more than their value and paid for in
trust stock. In cases in which works
are not purchased the product of such
works is contracted for at so much per
barrel. The trust, which is known a?
the North American Salt Company,
proposes to pay dividends of 20 per
cent, on its stock.
Of course the price of salt will he
increased. Out of the pockets of the
people will come the money that will
enable the trust to pay the enormous
dividend which it promises. The
people will suffer, but the rich men
who own the salt trust will rapidly
The shares of tho sugar trust arc
now selling above par, and it is ex
pected that the shares in the salt trust
will also command a premium. But
it would not be at all surprising if
many of those who purchase cither
sugar or salt trust certificates will find
themselves heavy losers before long.
It is pretty certain that a war is going
to No waged on trusts iu congress,
state legislatures and in the courts.
The probability is that tho trusts will
got tho worst of it. What will then
be the value of the certificates? They
will be almost worthless. Those who
get into the trusts on the ground floor,
however, will doubtless make a groat
deal of money before the trusts fall
into decay. Those who arc 011 tho
ground floor own the sugar mills, salt
works, etc., and if tho trusts go to
pieces they will still have their orig
inal property. Such will not be the
case of outsiders who buy-the stock.
The writers who arc making efforts
to show that trusts nre goods things
for the people nre cither ignorant or
intentionally mistake the truth. The
cheapness of kerosene is frequently
cited to show what a great benefit the
Standard Oil trust is to the people.
Who can say that kerosene would not
be cheaper if there -were no coal oil
The cotton • planters nre making
progress in their fight against the cot
ton bagging trust. There is not much
doubt that progress will bn made in
the wnr that has been inaugurated, or
that will be inaugurated, agni.ist other
kinds of trusts. The people arc
patient, hut there is a limit to their
