to either the party would have a

Harrison are enthusiastic for his
nomination; and the senator is in
a receptive mood. The friends of
Col. Houston are no less enthusi-

Marvelous Hook by a Plotur-
Once upon a time—to be more pre-
cise, in the latter part of the eighteenth
centitry—there lived a worthy Connec-
ticut divine named Rev. Samuel Peters,
says B. J. Hendrick, in Leslie's Month-
ly. Peters was a picturesque person-
age in his way, but his fame rests en-
tirely upon the fact that he wrote a
book. This is one of the most marvel-
ous works ever issued from the press,
it was Mr. Peters, for example, who
first discovered, and made known to
the world, that the founder of Yale
college was a Rev. Thomas Peters, evis
Li n- v one of his own ancestors; that
at Bellows Falls the water flowed so
fa>t that it became as hard as marble,
making it possible to float a crowbar
upon it; that two most marvelous
quadrupeds, the “w happermotker”
and the “cuba” (evidently the ances-
tors of the jabberwock) roamed wild
in the Connecticut forests; and it is
also front Mr. Peters that we first
learn of the famous incursion of the
Windham frogs. But it was in the
early jurisprudence of Connects t
that this expatriate made his most in-
teresting discoveries. He informed
his English readers and most of them
believe the story devoutly to this day
—that the citizens of the state tiers
forbidden by law to make mince pies,
to pla v on any instrument of music ex-
cept the drum, trumpet or Jew-sharp,
and that every male must have his hair
cut round, “according to a cap"—the
model preferably being the hard shell
of a pumpkin. In other words, Mr.
Peters was the original promulgator
of the Connecticut “blue laws;" and
his fame as the inventor of many of
them is secure.

said to have effected two remarkable
cures—one a case which Scientists

nine in the colony, and each individual

the remedy, says a New Haven corre-
spondent of the Chicago Tribune.

medical properties of milk. Mr. Rob-
inson has suffered a great many years
with a nervous disease which special-
ists have been unable to benefit. Be.
cause, ns he says, he was tired of every-
thing, including eating, he determined
a little more than a month ago to fore-
1 go solid food and live on milk. The suc-
cess of his experiment has tmore thaa
surprised him. In the month that La
has lived without solid food of any
kind he has gained eight pounds in
weight and his nervous disease has dis-
appeared. He drinks ten quarts a day,

an hour. He declres that he will never

RECULARS NOT SUPERIOR.
Modern Methoiln of Warfare Mnk«
Cltlr.ea Soldier* Equal to
In an interview in the London Maii
cn the military situation in France,
M. de Bloch says the lessons of the
Transvaal war are that the methods
of warfare hitherto employed have
become obsolete «»nd impossible; that
professional soldiers no longer pos-
sess their former superiority over civ-
ilians transformed into soldiers; that,
on the contrary, the intelligent citi-
zen possesses more initiative and in-
dependent action. The soldier's pres-
ent training is almost useless ou th«
battlefield. The lioers, who are sim-
ply peasants, have proved excellent
«<»ldiers. Even in the British army
the colonial troops and the Yeomanry
were equal to the regulars.
Just as Plevna was a revelation
from the point of view of defensive
tactics, so the Transvaal campaign
has demonstrated that in future wars
at every step there will be I'levnas,
for the defense of which soldiers who
• re only good marksmen will suffice.
Evan for the offensive warfare the
experience of England tends to tho
conclusion that seven months’ train-
ing for artillery and a few months
for infantry are quite enough. As to
the cavalry, all training is useless,.
• ince, according to Col. Henderson,
“the small bore and smokeless pow-
der have destroyed the last vestige
of the traditional role of cavalry*
Cavalry armed, trained and equipped
• as the cavalry of the continent is a#
obsolete as the Crusaders.”
On the Amazon river several Indian
tribes use snuff, called pareca, which is
made of the seeds of a species of plant.
When a bout of snuff-taking is deter-
mined on the people become highly in-
effect of pareca is so violent that th®
taker drops as if shot and lies insen-
sible fur some tinu; those more ac-
