life out, and proceeded to swallow his op

II ir to a Quarter of a Million
Sent to State Prison.
George II. Mix, who was indicted for
stealing $1,000 worth of lace from the
store of II. B. Claflin & Co., and pleaded
guilty, was brought up for sentence in the
tiene'ral Sessions yesterday. The circum
stances in the case have already been pub
lished in the Times, but being of an ex
traordinary nature, will bear repetition.
Mix is of most respectable connections,
and the son of a wealthy banker in Hart
ford, Conn., who, at his death, bequeath
ed the prisoner an estate-said to be worth
$250,000. The trustees of the estate al
lowed Mix $1,500 a year to live on, but
this sum proved entirely inadequate to
gratify his tastes. Some time ago he was
arrested in the Gilsey House for swindling,
but through the intercession of his family
was saved from the State Prison. A short
time ago Mix again visited this city, and.
on the strength of forged letters of recom
mendation from a number of prominent
citizens, obtained a situation as salesman
in the lace department at Claflin's. On
the S'th Instant he disappeared, and it was
ascertained that $1,000 worth of lace had
been stolen. The prisoner was arrested,
and informed the detectives where he had
secreted the stolen proertv. In his
trunk were found a number of forged let
ters of recommendation to bankers in San
Francisco and other places. On being
brought to the bar. Mix wept bitterly,
and pit4ously pleaded for mercy. I!e
rorder Hacket said that the prisoner had
brought disgrace on his family and con
nections by his conduct, and deserved
no sympathy. The sentence of the court
. was that he be confined in State Prison
at hard labor for five years. A F. Times,

The speakers at educational conventions,
and writers on education, in many cases
seem to have lost their wits in these latter
days. The idea of havingchildren taught
their lessons in good honest fashion is one
which these gentlemen seem to have lost
sight of altogether. What "they demand
is, that the "essential manhood" of the
boy and the " ideal womanhood " of the
girl shall be developed. Yea. the teachers
are to "cast aside their humdrum lessons
and search out the infinite capacities fr
good or evil in the child, and stimulate the
one and exterminate the other.
On this issue, we shed our ink in defense
of teachers yes, and in defense of the
scholars also. It is asking too much of a
finite teacher to employ himself in search
ing out infinite capacities. And. in fact,
how is he to searcli out an infinite capa
city ? And how is he to tell an infinite ca
pacity when he finds it And, above all,
what is to become of the poor child that
has to suffer such an infinite ransacking?
It would be a miracle if the poor little crea
tures had any capacity left at all after a few
months of such treatment.
And then as to th "essential manhood'
of the boy and the " ideal womanhood "
of the girl that are to be developed, how
is a teacher to find out and lay hoTJ of
those elements ? Will any lecturer on ed
ucation point out the "essential manhood''
in any boy, or the " ideal womanhood "
in any girl, whatever?
Such talk about education as these peo
ple indulge in is twaddle. The business
of a teacher is to see that his scholars learn
their lessons and do their duty from hour
to hour. Children thus taught, and
brought up properly at home, will be
pretty Eure to exhibit in later life all the
manly and womanly qualities which their
positions in life may demand. Xew Ycrk

A Speculator in Wives.
The Xew York correspondent1 of the
Boston Times credits a prominent munici
pal officer of the former city with having
discovered a method of converting woman
into clean cash. The discoverer, it is al
leged, has beert speculating in wives 'for
some years past, and has come out of his
singulation with a handsome fortune.
His first speculation was with his first
wife, some years ago. The physicians
having pronounced her to be in consump
tion, and informed him she could not live
through the winter, he went to an insur
ance olliee, and took out a policy of $10,000
on her life. No examination was made,
the company taking his word for it that
she was in robust health. He then carried
the policy to a second olliee, and on the
strength of it got another $10,000, and
thus kept on repeating the operation until
his policies reached the sum of $100,000.
His wife died in the following February,
and, rather than incur the displeasure of a
man of his power and influence, the com
panies paid the amount without any pro
test. He theu set about him for another
speculation, and, finding a wealthy wo
man, manys'cars his junior, he laid siege
to her and married her. Her relatives be
fore the marriage had demanded that he
should settle certain property upon her,
which he did, taking the precaution, how
ever, to mortgage it for nearly all it was
worth. When the trick was discovered
she left him, but meanwhile lie had made
$100,000 out of her. His third specula
tion in wives netted him $2"0.000, so that
out of the three wives he has cleared $450,
000, and even now he is not satisfied. In
the light of such developments as these,
woman becomes more precious than ever.
In addition to her social value, her finan
cial value becomes greatly enhanced. She
is a perfect treasure.
A CHy Almost Orphaned '
A narrow escape from what would have
been a real calamity to the city occurred
Monday evening, no less than the involv
ing of i he lives of the Mayor and the City
Council. It hathus far "been kept quiet,
and treated as a little joke. The gentle
men were inside the new- C-foot sewer,
making an examination of it as a commit
tee of the whole, all being present, we un
derstand, except Mr. llayward. ; Each
held a lighted candle, and they had pio
gressed Irom the river to Second Street,
when suddenly the interior of the sewer
was was filled with steam. It produced
some inconvenience: ' and all got out as
soon as possible. 1 he fact has since been
found that the blow-olFpipe of the hominy
mill passes under the sewer, and, that it
hapjiened to be tho time lor - closing of
work in the mill for the day, and tlie en
gineer, not knowing they were there, had
started to let out the steam. But as he
did so he fonnd some trifling obstruction
was in the valve, and so he let dow n the
lever untH he could attend to it, and did
not let ont the st cum until some time .af-'
terward, wbt n the Mayor and Councihneii
were out. The deluging of the sewer
with hot steam, at 100 pounds pressure,
from those tiicee-big toilets would have
killed any member of the party almost in
stantly, and beforCi they could have rc
ceeded in getting out of the place. Their
escape seems provkienti.il. Terrt Haute

of the dailvlifeof an exceptionally hard

is written bv a man who is partly blind : "I

after a cup of coffee, 1 write for two hours

plunge bath, and take breakfast with my
family, who then have taken tlteir lunch.

body begins it. I then go home and have
supper, and spend the evening until 10
o'clock there, usually listening to reading
hy my wife, or having a little music. At
10 o'clock I am back to the office again,
where 1 remain until 2 o'clock. I am only
able to write two hours a day myself ; and
the rest is done by dictation. I read but
little myself, but glance through the ex
changes, in order to give an idea of things,
having important afticles read out loud to
me. I have no time for exercise and do
not care for riding, all the exercise I get
being in walking to and from the of
fice.'.'. As an example of tho literary pro
ductiveness of some of the most brilliant
and steady writers for the press, I may add
that John nay only writes two hours a
day, usually in the afternoon, though his
favorite time of composition is before
breakfast. He writes rapidly, but his daily
average is only one column of Tribune bre
vier. The other members of the Tribune
staff Hassard, Noah, Brooks, Bromley
and Congdon do about the same. The
average amount written by the stuff of the
Times i-s about the same. Two of the
harnest literary workers in America are

Yet, the former is at his desk but three
hours each day, and always insists on hav

amount that President Grant requires;
while Mr. Parton calls his daily work four
hours' composition and three hours' re

exceeds this limit. A'eu Fork Independent.
Bismarck's Coat or Mail.
The history of Bismarck's coat of mail
is eriven in an Austrian journal. ' It ap
pears that in 1SG5 a younr Hungarian
baron visited Bismarck, and informed him
that he had invented a bullet-proof shirt
of mail. He added that he wore a shirt of
the kind, and requested Bismarck to test
it. The Chancellor is not a man to be
trilled with, and seeing: he had not a fool
before him, seized his revolver and fired
five shoots successively at his visitor. The
latter remained unharmed and immovable,
but the bullets 6truck him and trU to the
ground. Hereupon he showed his inven
tion. It was a shirt of many folds sewn
together. The elasticity and denseness of
the stun gave H such a power of resistance.
The Hungarian nobleman now advised the
Chancellor to accept of his Invention, and
when tlie latter inquired what was to be
the price of it. he s iid, "Beat the Austri-
ians." "We shall do that in all cases," re
plied Bismarck. .Some days after this oc

This process, invented by M. Zuccato, is
an entirely novel principle of printing
without ink. for the use ot commercial
men. and all nersons who hastily wish to
simile. The process is simple and cleanly,
and may be easily conducted by a boy on
an ordinary copying press, tlie impressions
being produced at the rate of three or four
a minute. .
In preparing the copy for printing, by
this method, the manuscript or drawing
has to be executed with a special ink upon
a special waterproof-coated paper. The
latter is then placed upon a damp pad of
calico, or other suitable material, and is
submitted to the action of the press. Up
on removing this, in from three to five
minutes, the ink is found to have eaten
through tlie waterproof, leaving a com
plete stencil plate, which is held together
by the fiber of the paper, tlie ink not hav
ing any effect upon this. It is next damp
ed with pure water, and placed face down
wards upon a sheet of blotting paper,
styled " pad." that has been previously
moistened with an almost inexhaustible
rireoaration that represents printing ink.
The paper to be thus printed upon must
be damped with an inexpensive solution,
this being prepared Dy aauing a ccruiui
nowder to a ffiven Quantity of water. A
sheet of this damped paper being placed
ovpr the manuscrint and submitted topres
sure, a fac-simile impression is at once ob
tainedand this operation may be repeated
three hundred or more times, or so long
as the waterproof paper will bear copies
to be taken. One peculiar advantage per
tainin? to this process is. that the printed
impressions do not set on, and may be uu

Judgment of Musicians. Theodore
Thomas, the distinguished founder and
conductor of the famous 44 Thomas Or-1
chestra," New York, ought to know as
well as any one the opinions entertained
by musicians respecting musical instru
ments. He declares that they generally
aoTee with him in regarding the Mason &
tt . ui rv Cabinet Organs as much the
best instruments of this class in the world.
It is not, therefore, surprising that they
are now largely exported to Europe,
commanding higher prices there than
the instruments of their best makers.
