fourteen years ago Italy purchased
the bay of Asian on the coast of Abya
sinia. I.atr on she gained the Island
of Matsowah on the same coast. Vi
sions then began to open up to her of
a great colonization scheme. It has
b-come a sort of fad among Kuropean
powers to engage in such schemes,
espec ially in Africa, and Italy felt that
to maintain her position as a first
class power she must sport a coloniza
tion scheme as well as France, (ier
iany, Spain, and Fngland. The Ital
ians have therefore been using Masso
wah as a center of operations and
pushing inland and southward, tryinf
to subdue the natives of the country
and become ruler of it by force. For
some time the various tribes made no
elfort to resist the encroachment of
the Italians, but the king (or negus),
Meneh-k, of Abyssinia, a: last united
the warring tribes of his country in
resistance. This king (Menelek)
claims to be a descendent of King Sol
omon and the lueen of Sbeba.
Hostilities began about six months
ago and the Italian army has been hav
ing anything but a picnic. The coun
try is mountainous, the commissary
department very costly, and the Abys
sinian were found to he armed with
modern weapons, including artillery,
and to know how to wse them. Twice
the Italian army has met with reverses
prior to the recent defeat. Inconse
quence General Varatieri was ordered
back home and General Baidissera
sent with re-inforcements. liefore he
reached the scene, General Iiaratieri
seems to have determined to use one
last desperate chance to retrieve him
self, and in assault on the Abyssinian
nearAdowa, he was overwhelmingly
beaten and his army of 23,000 men
routed, 15,000 being killed and 00 pieces
of artillery captured. The excitement
in Italy when the news reached there
was intense, and was attended with
rioting in all the big cities. The feel
ing against Crispi's (the 1'rime Min
ister; entire policy of trying to keep
Italy in the front military rank, tho'
the nation is tottering on the verge of
bankruptcy, has increased, and the
discontent is something savage. On
the one hand.it is feared that the cost
of continuing the war to a snccessful
issue will be too great fur Italy's peo
ple to tolerate. On the other hand, it
is felt that her honor must be vindi
cated and her power manifested, or her
standing among the great powers will
be jeopardized. It is strongly suspect
ed that France and Russia have been
aiding King Menelek and supplying
him both with ammunition and gener
als. Italy's troubles are well deserved.
The Abyssinians have as much right
to live in peace as any other people,
and if they successfully resist this at

The muddle in tbe Kentucky legis

happened. Tbe five goldbug I -rao-crata
bad tbe cheek to draw up a re
quest for Blackburn, who is a free
silver man, and w bo has been getting
W votes on every ballot, to withdraw
in favor of some goldbug.
Then Hunter, the Republican, who
is a goldbug, bethought him of a cute
scheme to capture the two Porn. lints
and perhaps some free silver Ierno
cratic votes. He got mixed up with a
promise to try to restore silver to te
filace it occupied up to 1S7.1. A Repub
ican charged him with doing this and
offered documentary evidence to prove
it. This was a dynamite bomb in the
camp. Three of his supporters for
sook him immediately. Others said
they would vote for him uutil he had a
chance to clear himself.
He could not clear himself. The
charge against him was true and he
was compelled to withdraw from the
race entirely. Tbe Republicans then
nominated St. John Boyle in place of
Hunter. Boyle proved to be but very
little better. It was stated that a
short time before his nomination he
was bowling around for free silver,
though be was nominated as a gold
standard man. This created some
commotion among tbe Republicans,
and while it lasted tbe five (fold stand
ard Democrats brought Secretary Car
lisle forward as a candidate. When he
was nominated a number of the Re
publicans voted for him. This shows
that the goldbugs are sticking to
On joint ballot tbe Democrats and
Republicans were equally divided.
Then a Democratic member of tbe
House died. The Republicans bad a
majority in tbe House and they
thought tbey saw a plan to carry the
day by unseating a member of the
House. This was done. Then the
Democrats who have a majority in the
Senate retaliated by unseating two
Republican members of the Senate.
Tbis almost caused a riot. Excitement
was intense. The legislature became
a mob. Pistols were drawn and life
threatened. Ladies who were present
begged piteously to be allowed to re
tire from among these political toughs
and rumans sent by the two old par
ties to legislate for old Kentucky. This
is the result of voting for Democrats
and Republicans. W hen will the peo

An Important Discovery.
A large and partially unexplored
region north of the Province of
Quebec aud between the head waters
of the Ottawa River and James Bay,
the southern part of Hudson's Bay,
has recently been the scene of a not
able discovery by Professor Bell, of
the Canada Geological Survey. Dur
ing his explorations last summer he
traced the course of a large river,
hitherto unknown, which drains the
region to the southeast of James Bay.
The river is larger than the Ottawa,
and a great part of it averages a mile
in width. The country drained by
it is level or gently undulating, and
may be generally described as a
plateau of one thousand feet above
the sea level along the height of land,
diminishing to some four hundred
feet at one hundred miles or so from
the mouth of the river, and then
descending more rapidly to the shore
of James Bay. The soil is sandy in
the vicinity of the height of land
and for some distance beyond, butcf
brownish clay along the banks of the
rivers and in the forests. The coun
try is well wooded, and ia fitted to
be the home of a large population.

to die in a few minutes. I employed
tke best physician in my town. He
told roe he could not do much for me,
but doctored me two years, and I
grew worse all the time, finally took
my bed and could not get up. The
doctor told me he had given me
everything he know of, but I finally
got up again, though could not
sleep, being so. restless and nervous
I could hardly live. I bought an

inches deep with wheat riraw (oak
leaves will answrr if the straw is not
handy). Pack down tbe straw well
and place on tbe !raw 0 inch
es of freh stable manure, pack
down well and wet t he manure mod
erately with water, which will caue
it to beat. TI.e manure in tbe box,
when filled, should be letel with the

plete the box by adJing the six inch
boards, makiog it 1" im-hea deep. Add
now 2 inches of looe l.wuu, preferbly
couipo;ed in part of eatid. Then place
the potatoes, tbe large ones at one end,
medium size in the middle and tbe
small ones at tbe other end of bed.
This is necessary in order that all
sizes may be covered to the same depth.
The potatoes should then be covered
with dirt, not exceeding iiu l.es deep.
When covered too deep they produce
longspiitdling cprotits, which are not
so good. For this climate I be la-t
days of March ! a good time to .. d.
It may be well not to place the Kta
toes until after the bed gels warm,
which at most will be only a few days.
If too much rain falls, tho bed should
be covered. If the bed gets too warm
it should be cooled with water. I have
bedded according to this plan a i "M
ber of times and tievir had the pota
toes injured by heat: never foun.l it
necessary to protect from rain by ov
The principal advantage of a hot
bed is that it at orce raije th pota
toes to sprout and thu prevent rot
