Where else but in America could a man turn big band to bo many occupations and win a good degree of sncoeas in all? A commission appointed by the Spanish government to consider Spain's commercial relations at home and abroad has reported, and in that report strongly advises that upon the expiration of certain treaties with foreign countries in 1892 the old protective tariff of 1877 Bball be rovived and enforoed. One by one European powers are compelled to go baok to protection as a measure of self defense. It ;b protection and not free trade that seems to be getting uppermost in Europe. It wearies the average reader to road and to hear what the free trade papers have to Bay about the probable results of the operation of the new tariff bill. All manner of evil is predicted. Prices of all the necessaries of life are to go up to exorbitant rates. Food and dry goods, woolens and hardware are to be put at famine prises. Now, there is no probability of any such occurrence. A few Items may rise slightly in price, so slightly that no one will notice the difference, but every one knows full well that there will be no material change anywhere along the line.

Guzzlors are fortunate now-a-days.

Nature is a sort of summer girl. She gets dreadfully cool when the autumn comes. The oommon phrase, "When Greek meets Greek, then comes the tug of war, is the most common misquotation in tbe language. Correotly It should read: "When Greeks joined Greeks, then wan the tug of war." It waa first written by Nathaniel Lee, in 1700. In the matter of weather, the assortment and variety are suob that "you pays you: money and takes your"-cold.

Where rumor smooth sailing. is afloat gossip finds It does not pay any man to wear bis life out in accumulating an immense fortune, Beyond a certain limit, money is an en eutnbrance. Never having reaobed that limit we do not speak from experienae. You can never tell bow muoh tbe lines on a man's face oount till you s ee him in a wood out. An exchange tells of a man who "shot himself in tbe kitoben." That must be a new part of the human anatomy. Perhaps It's a new name for stomaob. Nobody but a woman can write, scientifically of woman's apparel. The man who attempts it is lost. Young man, be careful bow you bei on the result of elections. "Doubtful things are mighty uncertain." A few years ago woman was all pins. Now there isn't a pin in her whole composition, and only a few buttons. She is tailor made, her skirts are caught together with hooks, and her "bodies" with frogs and tabs. Dress does for women what rum does for men. It trips them up. Don't overload yourself. Carefully adjust to-day's burden, and let to-morrow's take care of itself. A Chioago dentist says too much kissing oanses the teeth of Americans to de-oay. Old maids must have sound teeth if this is tbe caso. Wbat some women suffer for fashion's sake is sad to contemplate. If tbe olot'ii-ing of many could bo cut by the fami'y dootor instead of tbe tailor life's burden'a would be lightened.

The Uepartnient of State at Washington in Receipt of the Official Proceedings of the Authorities at Havana-The Belief Expressed That the United States Will Ultimately Control the Commercial Market** Washington. Oct. 20.-The Department of Ctate has reoeived a copy of the miauteB of debates which have recently taken place in the Chamber of Commerce of Havanna with reference to the McKin-ley bill, and the question of reciprocity. This statement wbioh was transmitted to tbe Spanish Minister of the colonies, waa acoompanied by a letter from Segudo Alvareg, President, and Saturnino Martinez, Secretary General of tbe Chamber, which shows the existence of strong sentiments favorable to reoiprooi'y with tbe United States. Tbe statement tbat resolutions on this subjeot were passed br tbe Chamber of Commerce were published a few days ago and this communication sets forth more fully their action. Tbe address strongly urges that a treaty of reciprocity be entered into with the United States, declaring that if this is not done promptly Brazil, which was first to the front with negotiations, will. drive Cuba from the field. The Minister is in-' formed that it is tbe opinion of the Chamber of Commeroe and all commercial traders of Cuba that the United States must control the oommeroial markets of tbe world, as England does tbe money market, and that if Cuban commerce is not to be abandoned, they must look to t'je United States for an outlet for their products. The opinion is expressed further that the United States oannot be frightened by threats of refusal, since suoh refusals would have to be upon suoh produota which the European nations are obliged to have from tbe United States. The address lookB to an exobaoge of sugar and tobacco for American farm products. the doty on lumber. Washington, Oot. 20.-Assistant Secretary Spanlding made a ruling to-day that lumber imported from Canada prior to tbe 13th instant, but the entry of whioh was not completed until after that date, is entitled to the lower rate of duty prescribed for lumber in the existing Tariff laws. The 13th is the date fixed by the Dominion Government for tho removal of the export duty on lumber. Cleared Seventy-Four Dollars. The ladies of the Dnnnsbnrg M.

Soranton, the electrio oity, is beautiful for situation, wide streets, paved with asphalt and oedar blocks; containing, with suburbs, almost 00,000 inhabitants, and is connected with all parts by an electric street railway. Tbe publio buildings are imposing structures of stone. A new government building will soon be erected and a city hall is in course of ereetion. The Reoording Secretary, Mrs. Olive Pond Anvirs is a Soranton lady of New England birth and parentage, of fine presence, good voice and executive ability. It was a marvel to the gentlemen with wbat earnestness and dispatch the ladles attend to their duties. Tbe young women report COO more paying members than last year. There has been an advance all along tbe line this year and these philanthropists aro just entering upon tbelr work. Tbe national convention meets in Atlanta, Ga.,this year. Thirty-four delegates were elected to represent the Keystone state this. year. Clinton oounty was represented by Misses Holahao, Perkins and Loveland. Some very important projeots were planned. The Soldiers'Orphans' Schools work is about accomplished and an effort will be made to have the State foster industrial sohools for the destitute chlldreD, worse than orphaned, by tho rum curse. To petition the coming Legislature to pass anti-treating laws. To grant tbe women tho school ballot. To pass a law prohibiting the use of tobaooo iu any form whatsoever in any public place or resort. This is a petition for pure air nod clean habits. Similar important action was taken whioh will be embodied In law and statute. It was a successful convention in every particular, and may sucoess attend the labors of these devoted women. w. c. t. u. Mackoyville, Pa., Oct. 20, '00. Mechanical Geuius aud Oood Judgment Enrich a former Slave. -� From tho lioBtoii Transcript. In Birmingham, Jefferson county; Ala., there lives a man, who, if his residence were in tbe North would be regarded as a phenomenon; but the South Is full of snob oharaoters, and tbey need only to be noticed in order to be known. This man's name is Andrew Beard; b\ 'D In Jefferson oounty, be is 41 years of age; he was a slave in that county, and has risen to a substantial position in life by reason of tbe play given to his mechanloal ability. His life is interesting, and as it will commend itself to all, be may be allowed to speak for bimself: - "My name is Andrew Beard. I am 41 yoars of age. I was born at ":rmingham. I never went to sohool in my life, and all the education tbat I have is gotten by contact with people in the world. I waa a slave, and belonged to a family by the name of Beard. I was set free at fifteen years of ago, and at sixteen was married. I farmed five years in Jefferson county, and moved afterward into St. Clair oounty. I visited Montgomery in 1873, with a load of apples drawn by oxen. I bad fifty bushels, which 1 sold at an average of $4 per bushel. It took me three weeks to make the trip. After this venture I quitted farming and went into millwrighting at Hardwicks, and built. while there my first flour mill. I remained there for about three years, and during that time I ran tbe mill tbat I built. I watched how people worked, and tbat was the way I succeeded in building flonr mills. During my work there I began turning in my mind tbe making of plows; and in 1881 I patented one of my own invention! I sold it in 1884 for (4,000, and then returned to my old borne, where I was born, and farmed there four years. Daring that time I invented another plow; on the 15th of December, 1887, 1 sold � for (5,200, and then went into the real estate business. With the money I made, I accumulated $30,000. Id 1888 I turned, my attention to another subject-tbe making of a fish plate and a caveat for it My intention is to have some manufacturer take hold of it, manufacture these plates and put them on some prominent railroad at my own expense for a mile or two, and if tbey prove successful I will sell the patent to tbe highest bidder. "In 18801 discovered tbe rotary engine. This engine differs from all others in these principles; it is simple, costs one-tenth less than other engines, and saves twenty per oent. of steam and has no eccentric There is no danger of explosion, and every ounoo\ of steam is used from the boiler. This engine is made wholly under my supervision at the shop of Dennis I. Hood, in Birmingham, and is now patented. I have just reoeived the patent) and it is my ^intention to put it out in order to prove ,its merits and will then sell it to any ;proml-nent manufacturer. I paid tbe workmen who worked on the machine sixty cents per hour. I have also another thing in view-a ooupling machine. I propose to oouple cars irrespective of their height This is a great difficulty that railroads have encountered; the present oars, being of unequal height, oannot eouple together." Trouble like polioemen, oomes in pairs. Both Congress and the State Legislature will be in session next January. Killed tho Old He Could Hot Win.

She died almost instantly. Lopez then shot twioe at himself without effect and shortly afterwards an officer oame up and Lopes fired, three shots at him without doing any damage. Ho was then arrested and Looked up. � A Bark Wrecked In a Oale., London, Oct. 20.-The Spannish bark Villa De Llancs, Captain Onato, with a orew of twelve men, from Liverpool Ootober 14 from Laguna, has probably been lost in tbe galea off Ormea Head.
