The-e is always an undercurrent of the mysterious, which sometimes merg es into the gruesome. It seems to me that this note is ob servable io Russian literature as well a sadness too empty of the joy of living to be healthful. It will not be forgotten that Tschai kcwsky died suddenly in 1893, and that one of his symphonies is called the "Suicide Symphony." How widely dif ferent from Beethoven's last symphony, the immortal ninth, which is one great paean of joy! And yet Beethoven more than Tschaikowsky had reason for gloom and despair.

On the other hand comes the report, instigated by covert enemies, that the liquor dealers of the country have combined to advance his interests, this report being intended to cause the disaffection of the temperance people. In a hundred such ways, to say nothing of the attempt of Quay, Platte and Clark son to steal the control of the organiza tion of the national convention, is Mc Kinley feeling the power of bold politi cal manipulators. But through it all he continues to steadily advance, and it seemB almost certain that he is march ing to an assured triumph. McKinley's nomination at St. Louis will be one of the greatest personal victories ever won in American politics, comparable in some respects to Abraham Lincoln's first nomination for president.

THE COURIER. Men's Fashions for May written fob the courier. 1'he work of the artist who designs patterns for suitings is not easy. A good pattern must not bo obtrusive. It must be agreeable when seen, but above all it must not be pretty. That is an abomination to the critic of men's wear. The choice of patterns has much to do with the appearance of the wearer. A proper selection corrects the lankinees of the tall man and the tubbiness of a short one- Never before in the history of tailoring has there been so large a variety of weaves and colors. The most popular effects are in rough Scotch cheviots in fine pinchecks, stripe effects and plaids. The latter of many colors. These cloths made in the loose easy three button sack with patch pockets buttoned, a fly front vest and trousers bordering on the pegtop style, make a very neat suit.
