OF THE CENTEX-
The lurgunt building in the world ia
in procuHS uf duniilitii)ii. Workmen
have at lust cominunccd the dmnmnt
ling of thuMuinCentonniul Uuildini;,
un nbstinl ileKixiintion, niiarenllj' lirnt
nmdo through a clinnco m mornndum
or similar Occident, and curio iely never
improved upon, and in a few weeks
nothing will be left of what was the
most impressive fenturo of tho grcut
Kxhibition. It in not improper lo
epcak of thut chitngo ah involving the
lust of tho Ceutenniul Bpeeiultieg, for
whiloMomormlund Horlieulturul Halls
will rcinuin, they are fixtures of a
pedal kind, intended for jiennanonco
and o measurably removed from Cen
tennial tradition9, an well as devoted
to ues which do not of necessity re
call memories af tho Kxposition. The
Main Building is the last to go ot tho
structure" which wero erected only for
tho occasion, and while it has stood
longer than there was any idea in tho
beginning would be tho case, it is not
possible lo escape a regret that its re
moval should be unavoidable). It so
porfeclly fulSllcd tho purpose of its
orection, it had such a pluco in the
most memorable period in tho lives of:
such multitudes of people, thut the dis
mantling of its twenty acres is not
only un unprecedented circumstance,
but a searching reminder uf cxhilura
ling days and sights such as few who
now live can cxpoctever to enjoy again.
Tl.o Permanent Kxhibition idea was
long ago seen to ho impracticable, and
the wonder is that tho Main Building
has stood this long. As far as the
iron work is concerned, it has had a
fairly long ''life," but lor tho rest of it,
and not being intended for permanence,
thousands of dollars yearly would be
required for repairs. II it had sufficient
basements, if its wood work wat of
more substantial kind, and if it stood
in a place more accessible to the body
of tho city population, especial sacri
fices for its rulcntion might be justified.
Hut under all tbe conditions nothing
more could bo dono, distasteful as the
idea is of losing so unique a building,
one so fitting for various public demon
strations, and whoso proporlions.or the
half of them, it is useless tocxpect to seo
duplicated. It is realized now, that it
was a mistuko to order tho demolition
of Machinery II all. The location of
that fine building was such that it did
not encumber tho Park, its siz.o was
not too great, and it was substantially
built. With modorato outlays for re
pairs it could havo stood for a genera
tion nnd havo been of immenso public
service But the error waj made, and ho
causo it was un error tho retention of
the Main Building is not mado any
moro practicable Tho removal of this
last groat rolio will, for a time at least,
niako a grout differonco In tho popular
movomcnt towards that portion of tho
Park. How far tho city railway service
to that point may bo affected by the
change is yet to bo determined, and
Memorial Hall and its fine museum
will aocm furthor nwav than ever. On
tho other hand, tho Pennsylvania Hail
road, with tho oporalion of tho Filbert
street extension, will have a station on
tho ground, which will serve to onlivcn
th e locality, oven If tho horno cars do
not longer find profit in making regu
lar trips to l.liu avenue Philadelphia
OUR NEW TESTAMENT.
Tho Washington Rrpublie, in allud
ing to tho now vor.iion, says :
As lo tho roviscd version of tho Now
Testament tho weight of sentiment as
expressed in Hub Church Congress was
decidedly adverse to it. The llev. and
Hon. (for bo is a mombcroloct ot tho
next Congress) J. Cotton Smith, of
Now York, described it as a work
which was neither Knglish nor Greek
and in which tho incomparablo stylo
of tho English Hiblo had boonsacriH"!
A layman denounced tho omissions of
tho doxology from tho Lord's prayer
as an extraordinary proceeding, op
posod to tho uniform usages of all tho
Protestant christrian churches of the
world. A Now Haven clergyman
Mr. Hurwood whilo deploring the
omissions of the doxology, admitted
that the revisers as honest men had no
choice in the matter, because it could
not bo found in tho text. A Vermont-
or Mr. Rutland denied that tho ob
joctio'i to the revision was a sentimental
ono that would pass away with tbe
passing genoration. Professor Good
win, of Philadelphia, rocognir.od in it
somo merits, but moro demorits and
many new mistakes, and gavo an in
ventory of what he considorod purely
gratuitous and, as it wore, doliborate
blunders. Mr. Henry, Connecticut,
leaned toward tbe rovision as an im
provement on the King James Torsion,
which be characterises as "a faulty
transaction of a corrupt original. And
so it want on, up and down tho gamut
of praiso or blame, tho predominant
sentiment, bowover, being against the
adoption of the rerisod edition.
Tho Indiana Supreme Court has
decided that a fellow who pays for a
game of billiards ho has lost is a gam
bler, and the house wberoin such an
ovent occurs is a gambling house.
Would the Court have the proprietors
keep the place just for the (un of thu
THE VEPARTlSa DEPOT.
Until thoso who trnvtl and thoso
who stay al homo will hail with do
light the pleasant announcement that
tho use id' the word depot is lo become
a thing of the past. The bother with
Iho word "depot" is that there is no
general agreement among those who
use it us to how it sboiild be anglicix
cd. Our people are constitutionally
clumsy, in their effort to pronounce
French words. Kven long usage does
not lend toward perfection in this ro
sped, but on tbe contrary makes the
pronunciation worse and worse. The
word is mangled into varying forms of
wretchedness, 'j'he correct style, is
gonorally accepted among business
men who nro in a hurry, is "deepo."
Tho man who is moro formal and in
less baste speaks of tho "deepoh."
His wife, if she is a lady of stylo, is
likely to apeak of the "deppo." Sho
who would put on a liltlo more style
fulls It tho "do powe. Tho exceed
ingly stylish and somewhat affected
young miss who wears six button kids
is content with nothing less magnilo
quent than "d'pou. This she pro
Bounces with un air of graoel'ulness
which no types can express.
Wo are to have the more sensible
and comprehensible word tttiifan in
stead of this much misproiioiinccd nui
sance. When the Pennsylvania Hail
road Company decrees this tho decree
comes with a force which promises ro-
spcctlul obedience wherever railways
and their stopping places are known.
"Stution" is more handy to uso and
less liable to bo misused. It conveys
tho idea of what is meant lar belter
than dopot ever coold. The learned
or the affected may do Ihiir utmost to
put on Btylo in the pronunciation ol
"stution," but it will bo all in vain. It
will probable not be long before tho
word depot will be shelved among the
obsoletes. Let us beseech for it a free
pass to the uttermost ends of the earth,
with no return coupon. Philtnlrlphia
OUR COMMERCIAL DEC A Y.
A contemporary relates this notori
ous fact :
And yet every year since tho out
break of tho Rebellion has seen a pro
gressive decay of our ocean commerco
without any attempt on tho purl of
Congress to provent its ultcr dissolu
tion. Tho London Timet made, tho
other day, the moderate estimate of
$80,000,000 a year as tho loss to tho
United States from having to pay
other nations lor tho carrying of Amer-1
ican exports and imports. People in
this country oficn waste their syinpa
thy on tho "down troddon masses of
Europe" who bavo lo maintain great
standing armies, yet not ono of the
great Kuropean powers expends on its
army anything like tbe sum which wo
thus sacrifice to the incapacity of our
law makers, w ho make no cfTort what
ever to Mop that waste. Such a dis
graceful stale of things, it .may be
safely asserted, could not continue to
exi:-t under any system of government
in which responsibility was fixed and
recognised. The difficulty under which
we labor, however, is that while tho
Executive brunch of tho Government
has no real power tho Legislative
branch has no real responsibility. In

Slates in tbe mutter of tho Slar Scrvico
investigation, has submitted a report
to tho Acting Attorney General which
is to day made public. Tho report is
very voluminous, and gives figures
showing the extent to which routes
were expedited by General Brady,
charging also that he deliberately ad
vertised for Star Service on such sebed
ulcs as to leavo room for premeditated
incrcaso of pay by means of allowances
for expedition, etc. Tho report pro
ceeds to summarize tho testimony in
regard to the result of most of the
orders for expedition, and asserts that
in somo cases tbe so-called "expedition"
actually delayed tbo mails, and that in
tho majority of cases no expedition

From tho yield of ono load tuliied and

not unknown to many observing culti

from a heavy application of muiure
are not to be calculated merely from
the additional produco of one crop.
The improvement of tho soil from the
good cultivation, and moro still, from
tho heavy manuring in ono season
makes itself known in tho increased

ing as a uruugcry and lurmiug as a
Icarnod prnlession. Tbe eccentric Lo-
reuKO Dow described in oneot his char
acteristic sermons the life of the farmer
who is owned by his farm, and the
paragraph, resurrected, is again going
Iho rounds of the press. It is gooi
enough to desorvo a now lifo in every
ten years: "Tho average Weslorn
farmer toils bard curly and Into, olton
depriving himself of needed rest and
sleep for what ? To raise corn. For
what? Tofcedhogs. For what? To

For what? To fcod moro hogs. For
what? To buy more land. And what
docs he want with moro land ? Why,
bo w ishes to raise, moro corn, lo feed
moro bogs, to bny more land, to raiso
moro corn, to feed mo-
more land, and in this circle be move
until the Almighty slops bis proceed
ings." Tho farm exists for tho furmor,
not tho furmor for tho farm. That is
a very simplo, but It is also a very
radical statement, and its application
would not only revolutionize lifo on
many a farm, but would bring to an
abrupt end man an agricultural jour
nal and "department" which i wholly
devoled to bogs and hominy, and has
littlo or nolh'ng to say of nian, bis
wife, and his children. This state
ment is equally truo of all Industries.
The young man who, when he was
asked what profession ho meant to
follow, replied, "The profession of man
hood," bit a very profound truth. One
ought to bave a largo capital of gon
oral manliness before bo embarks in
any spocinl profession or calling. To
be simply a specialist, lawyor, doctor,
merchant, farmer, or even preacher, is
to develop a finger at the cost of a
hand. The man who Is only a trades
man, no mailer what bis trade may
be, has already assigned the best part
of his stock in trade, and is bank
rupt, whether ho knows it or not. To
bs a farmor on tho noble scale is to be
first and continually a man on a largo
acalo, alive to all human interests out
side bis own special work, keeping
himself abreast of the great march of
tho limes by keeping himself informed
of all its movements and In sympathy
with thorn; making In short, the roost
of himself and his opportunities.
