of tho grand international exhibition of
the arts, Industrie and resources of tho

As a relief from tho turmoil of tho
lalo political campaign, what a grand
mcasuro this is to unite tho sentiment
of the pooplo of all parties and sections,
in urging upon Congress tho passage of
the bill unanimously reported by tho
House Commlttco on Foreign affairs,
providing for an exhibition for tho mil
lions of visitors from nil parts of tho
world of tho wonderful arts, resources,
and industries of the American republic,
in friendly competition with tho exhibits
of tho Dominion of Canada and of Cen
tral and South America, sldo by side, at
tho National Capital in 18021
What grander project can bo dovlsed
to properly commmomorato.tio 400th an
niversary ;of tho discovery of America
than to provide for an exhibition at tho
Capital of tho Commanding Republic of
thedovelopemcnt, progress and resources
of tho 'Western Hemisphere? It Is a
project which should arouse tho patriot
ism of all citizens with geuulno enthu
siasm. The rnocEssioN last night was a water
;olor in white and black.
The Republican procession Inst night
was, in many particulars, a most ro
marknble success. It is difficult to got
nt numbers, but thcro were probably
5,000 men In lino, and tills number would
have been largely increased if the
wentber had boon less threatening, it
was a thoroughly enthused crowd, and
yet tho order was uniformly good, and
no disturbances aroso. When it 1b con
sidered that bucIi a demonstration occurs
in a city where thcro aro no voters,
whero political organization is nat
urally lacking in luo essential ele
ment which must give cohorenco, and
further, when tho party represented has
been out of power for four yoars, the
energy and enterprise displayed and the
loyalty to party which bo ovidentlyand
enthusiastically manifests itself, aro
worthy of recognition and commonda
tion. A great victory must necessarily
havo a warming and reviving effect, but
it is none tho less creditable to those in
terested that in defeat they did not disin
tegrate, and when it was their timo
to celebrate they celebrated with a una
nimity that disaster might weaken, but
could not destroy. Tho procession was
a great revival and the spirit moved tho
.masses as one man.
It is said that Senator Quay is to be
meanly rewarded with tho Postmaster
Generalship. This is baso Ingratitude.
If there had been no Quay there would
havo been no reward to offer.
According to the annual report of
Treasurer Turner, of tho Knights of
Labor, that organization is not in a very
prosperous condition. Tho membership
lias fallen off 300,000 during tho last
year and tho order is nearly $3,000 be

It was as oversight on tho part of tho
Republicans last night that tho Govern
ment buildings woro draped in mourn
hig. Massachusetts 1ms set forward tho
peg of reform. The sentence of death
by hanging in tho case of Mrs. Robinson,
the muidcicH, has been commuted to
lifo imprisonment. Ohio, with a woman
waiting death on tho scaffold, should
follow tho oxamplo of Massachusetts.
And then in lino with this progress of
public sentiment, tho Lcgislatuiesof all
fitates should enact laws providing that
tho penalty of death shall not bo In
flicted upon women. This is not sunt!

In nn itilcrviow yobl-iday Br. Henry
T. Child gave some Interesting informa
tion conceinlns tho means of promoting
tho longevity of man. He says :
llicro is an appointed time for every
living thing, extending from the brief
period of tho ephemera, often less than an
hour, to the ngo of Ponio of tho laigost)
trees, which may reach to several thou
sand years. Among nnltunis we have
been ubb to note tho iigcs nt many
classes, that is tho timo when most tit
tho species die. It lias been estimated
that wo may determine the probable du
lntion of lifo by tlliat ot tho various ntnecs
of growth, mnturity ami decline, which
nro eoniowhnt rcguur. Tho old ndiisc,
soon ripe, soon to deeny, has n foundation
ot truth. Wo Judge ol the age of animals
by their rato of growth, and wo hpcnlc of
precocious children as having grown too
rapidly for long life.
uiiscrvntion Miows t lint, tno lirst, 20
years of man's llfo Is the Mago of growth,
then U0 years of maturity iitul SO for tho
period ot decline, making tho nllottcd
70 years. Dr. IlichiinUon, of London,
divides llfo in boven periods. (1) from
birth to 15 .veins, completed childhood;
(l!) from lfi years to HO, completed adol
escence; (3) from HO years to 15, com
pleted munhond or womanhood; It)
trom 45 to 00, ripened manhood or
womanhood; (5) from CO to 75, first
period ot decline; 10) from 75 to 00,
second period of decline; I") from 00 to
100 or upward, period ot scnllo matur
ity. I'rof. Gustnfson. in his wort.. "Tho
loundiition ot Death," says: "The
present average ntro of man is not over
50 years. Herodotus says of the Mucro
liinns (Ethiopians), in the timo of Cnra
byses, that they wero renin rluiblo for
their1 beauty nnd their massive iiropoi
tlons of body, in both ot which tliey
suriussed nil other men. They lived to
bo l'JO years old, nnd some to a longer
period, and yet they fed on roasted meat
and used milk for their drink." Dr.
John Richard Fane, when examined bc
foro tho lmillnnicntnry committee, in
1831, appointed to inquire into the cnuso
nnd cMcnb of drunkeiuiess, guvo it us
his opinion that tho life of man is 10
l'rofessor P. Flourens. of tho Colleco
of Irnncc, in his work on human longev
ity (Paris, 1851), considers 100 years to
bo tho norranl length of man's life.
"Few incn. Indeed," lie says, " reach
that age, but how mnuv do what is
necessary to rcnoh it? With our way
of living, our passions nnd worries, mail
no longer dies, but hills himself. To
prolong life, that is to malce it last ns
long as tho constitution indicates that
it should, thoro is a means nnd n .cry
certain means, nnd that is to llvo so
berly." Every man knows that his physical
body Is his means, for being and lining.
Ho knows that for this end he must
respect, cnio for -yes, revere his body.
Nobody, when tho mutter is brought
plainly beforo him, will hesltnto to ad
mit thnt ho ought, to live in such n
manner thnt nil his faculties, capacities
and powurs should receivo tho Jxsst)
development nnd activity; but in prnc
tiro tills truism is almost unknown.
And with our social llfo nnd institutions
only nn exceedingly small piopoitlon ot
mankind, even with tho best intention
of mankind, even with the best inten
tion In tho woild, could approximately

able rest, enough of undisturbed sleep,
congenial nnd healthy occupations, suf-
iicent nmonnr, nnu variety ot iicnitny
foods, fresh nnd pure nir nnd water,
healthy dwellings these nro nil essential
for bodily visor nnd hcnlth: but to how
many ot tho toiling millions who labor
for ilnllv bread, either by musclo or
brain, nre these essentials vouchsafed?
It is of the highest importance to keep
those views prominently before mankind
that tho ideals of a better lifo may bo
constantly hold up; for, although wo
may not reach theso ideals, they aro
essential for our progress, nnd every step
wo gain In tho direction of theso Is im
portant. Tho records which havo been
kept for moro than three hundred years
prove conclusively thnt there has been
a continued and progressive increase in
tho nvenigo longevity of tho human fnm
ily. The most completo records ot tho
kind referred to nro to bo found in tho
statistics of tho town of Geneva, in
Switzerland, whero n detailed account
of tho population, of the denths, the
births and the marriages, has been kept
since tho year 1540. It appears from
theso statistics that tho proportion of
tho number of deaths to tho number of
ho whole population, which, in 1000,
was ono to twenty-five, in tho next
half century was ono to twenty-seven,
in tho next ono to twenty-eight, in tho
noxt ono to thirty, nnd in tho next ono
to thirty-four; nnd during tho linlf
century lately passed over, tho propor
tion is known to havo decrenscd still
Snld Dr. It. F. Craig, in 1850: " Tho
average duration of life that is, the av
erage ngo of oil persons at tho period ot
their death hns increased from twenty
two years and thrco months, nt tho end ot
tlio sixteenth century, to lorry years ami
eight months, during tho pulled botween
tho years 1814 nnd 1833, and not only
has this ineienso of longevity been un

In a vision n few nights since His Lord
