It will be noticed . that most of
these same newspapers that are -now

they are now denouncing with good
Democratic Titnperatiye language.
a V-Bat whj this ne?er ceasing, end
leas pursuit of Populists, bj Demo
eratio newspapers ? If they have
proren so treacberoua to Democracy,
x being secedera from this faith, and
. then have failed to remain an indi
yidaal party, but instead have
sought a political alliance for office
and spoils, what does it amount to,
from a Democratic standpoint, if
thsy sell themeelves and their rotes

ncrJ1 to aek political alliance with
Toters who are secretly detested, but
to endearor to prove these same
Toters arrant rascals as soon as the
j. election is orer seems to be hypoc
risj of a tery high degree.
Seriously, what busineea is it of
theaev-JJecQOcratic papers whether
the Populists are all bought; wheth
er. Senator Pritchard receives the
nomination through this or any
other means; in fact is it not a spe
dee ef .exoeasiTe pilitical gall, any
way, for Democrats to be dictating
about this Senatorial nomination?
This besmirching of Populists
may be an attempt to beat Senator
Pritchard, but what has the Demo
cratic party to gain by making far
ther enemies of the Populists? Is
today the last of days, and does the
Democratic party of North Carolina
erer expect to be in the fight again?
It wonld not eeem that the party
ever expeeted to rise, if the conduct
of some of Its boasted papers are t
betaken as an indication of its fu
tort coming to the front.
. These attacks seem especially di
rected against the. Populists of this
section of the State, and yet from a
personal knowledge and acquaintance
of someo f these men, the Jocks a i.
cannot see why they should be put
dowa as so much political riff-raff to
be secured by a little, or much
The Populists are our neighbors.

Oranting their political apostaoy, is
it just at this time to impugn dis
honesty to what they might do at
some future time?
The Joc&xal thinks not, yet it
may be a test of simon pure Dem
ocracy to thesq aewspapers, when
a campaign is over and the
party is defeated, to cry out against
. those, who a few weeks before were
'eagerly sought out and asked to be
made joint political partners and
sharers in" the spoils accruing from

TBEISXaSSAQE AND CUBA.
However much sympathy tlitre
may be in this country for the suc
cess of the lusurgent cmise in Cuba,
and a possible demand for some
tangible expression on the part of
the United States which shall recog
nize the insurgents, there cannot
but be a feeling that President
Cleveland has made wise and sensi
ble recommendations or. this very
The practical and rational solu
tion of the Cuban ipitsfiou wut.l.i
seem to be the granting of auioi
my to three peop'e.
The. refusal of Spain to grant any
terms to iha insurgents until iL -y
lay dowa their arms is not g"icg to
result iu anything, for smch u i n
upon the pi rt of the insurgents
would place them at the mercv of
the Spaniards, and the result wonld
not be hard to predict.
On this line President (. levelaa.i
offers tho following important prop
osition. "It was intimated by this 'iowrn
mint to the Government of Spain j
some months aro that, if a satisfao-j
tory measure of home rale were ten j

would be accepted by them up c; a

CTnited States would endeavor to'
find a way not objectionable to i
Spain of furnishing such guarantee. '

TS SUICIDE CONTAGIOUS.
An interesting problem is present
ed to the consideration of the psy
chologist in the frequency of su icid e
ad over the country. Not a day has
passed in that period, but the newj
pc.pcrs have h::.d to record one or
more suicides. All known exp di
ents to end life's misery have been
resorted to, and one individual even
went so far as to write down the
sensations produced by the poison
he had taken until his hand refused
further to perform its wonted func
tions, and the ond had come. In
several, if not in the majority, of
the cases, no adequate motive ap
peared for the act of self-destruction.
It is not at all probable that
under normal mental conditions and
without anv external influences at
least one half of the suicides would
still be in the lies h.
The question arises: Is suicide
contagious ? Is it possible that per
sons, especially those of a morbid
turn of mind, may be excited by the
reports of such occurrences to make
awav with themselves, iu order to
escape further annoyance from real
or imaginary troubles ? It is pietty
generally admitted that a person
who is felo de-se is in n pertly de
ranged mental state. Upon this
theory, the courts have decided that
life insurance companies must p ly
the beneficiaries of the policies
'iSiied by them, it the insured per
son commits suicide, and even
though tiie policy may have co i
rained a waiver, on hi
rights and claims, or t
benefit the policy issu
I . K-king at the i n
light, the conclusion
warranted that the

seems to be
with all deta
of one or more such
ooou rrencw-s may exercise a depress
ing indu e ce upon ahead" des) -indent
or morose persons and cause
them to seek surcease from real or
imaginary troubles by the same
means which they find others have
effectually employed. In this view
1 f the case a law like that obtaining
in Xew York, which makes a per
. on criminally responsible for an at
tempt to commit suicide, appears
absurd, for no man should be pun
ished for an act done under tem
porary aberration of mind. It is a
subject replete with interest and
well worth the investigation of
alienists and psychologists. Wash.

inn the twigs, branches and saplings
of black birch for the birch oil dis
tilleries. By protecting the young growth,
crops are quickly raised. The birch
brush has brought from $1.50 to 13
a ton. The birch oil has sold at $5
I i to 8 a pound, but is now less. One
; ton of birch yields four pounds, of
oil. Fanners can make the oil them
selves. The distillery may be any

The clam's eggs are carried by the
mother on her gills. When there
are fish in the water with them the
mother clams discharge the eggs
which soon hatch: cut it there are
no fish they carry the eggs until
they decay. The reason of this
strange behavior is this: When the
eggs are set free in the water they
soon hatch, and the little ones swim
about until they find some fish to
which to attach themselves. They
live for a time on the mucus of the
fish, and then drop off, sink to the
bottom, and form burrows for them
selves. This curious semi-parasitic
life is no doubt a reversion of the
habit of some ancient ancestor.

Fire-Proof Wire Glass.
Some recent tests of the value of
wired glass are given in a recent re
port of the Boston Mutual Fire In
surance Company, and are believed
to indicate the important relation
of that material to fire-proof work.
An experimental test was made with
an ordinary brick structure of nine
feet high, provided on one side with
a wire-glass roof, and a roughened
glass on the other, side windows
and a glass door with wooden frames
lined with tin; and this building
was filled with rosen-saturated wood
to a height of six feet. On firing,
the ordinary glass cracked and fell
at once, while the wire glass re
mained, notwithstanding the heat
was so great as to crack the walls of
the building. The theory of such
glass standing heat in this manner
is said to be that the glass, under
the first influence of the heat,cracks
but is held in place by the wires,
but, as the heat increases, the glass
becomes fused again at a lower tem
perature than the wire, and, being a
poor conductor of heat, such glass
and the wire protect each other.
St. Louis Globe-Democrat,
East Siberia's Wealth.
A correspondent writing v to The
North China Herald from Kras
noyarsk, describing the territory
through which the great Siberian
Railway wiil pass, says:
"The wide and rich provinco ex
tends from tho Chinese frontier to
the Kara Sea ami North Ocean
tne southern part oi tne province
is populated, besides Russiau people
by the Tartarian-; the Northern by
the Tunguses, The soil in the South
ern and middle parts is fertile and
the farmers are rich. Here are also
very rich gold mines. Krasnoyarsk
was formerly no! large, but grew up
during the building of the railway.
The trade increased also, and there
are here some rich Russian mer
chants. Besides the Government's
branch bank, there is a branch of
the Siberian Trade Bank, which
was opened this year. There is also
an agent of the English Naval Ex
pedition of Mr Poppam, who sells
iron work. This company receives
goods directly from England by sea
through the river Yenisei, and is
allowed by the Russian Government
to transport the iron work from
England and to sell free of duty.
"Japanese and Chinese goods,
silks, &c, are very seldem brought
from the far East here; a dealer in
these goods conld make a goed, fair
business. Not far from Krasnoyarsk
is a sugar refinery, the on'y one in
Sibera. When the Siberian Rail
way is completely built, Krasnoyarsk
will be a great ceutre for Siberian
trade. Besides Krasnoyarsk there
are in tho Yenisei Proincj towns
Minousinsk, Atchinsk, Ye lieeyek,
and in the Northern part Tourouk
han8k. The trade in these is less
than at Krasnoyarsk. The North
ern scacoast is desolate."
