FRIDAY EVEX1XG, J AX. 23.
We regret to learn that the pope is con
fined to his bed with fever and rheuma
tism. Mr. Matthews, wife of Saprenie Judge
Stanley Matthews, died in Washington on
Thursday.
General Grant's article in the Century
on Shiloh is generally commended for its
candor and truthfulness.
Gen. Grant has an assured income of
$15,000 a year, and it is not at all likely
that he will ever go to the poor-house.
The Dayton Journal is slinging sulphur
around with as much complacency as if
there were n itch in Montgomery county.
The Journal "deniges of it." It pro
claims that there is no itch within fifteen
sniles of Dayton. What, no itch of any
kind whatsoever?
The Dayton Journal says "killing bills
is patriotism." That depends on how
killing they are and what they kill. And
even then the 'schoolmaster would come in
and inquire if "bills is."
It is thought by highly cultured persons
that Mrs. Vinnie Ream Hoxie's works of
art bought by the government are ridicu
lous Mrs. Vinnie has got about $30,000
out of the treasury, at any rate. This is
not ridiculous.
Ryan's bill for the settlement of disputes
between employers and employees by arbi
tration is the voice of universal public
sentiment, and its unanimous passage yes
terday by the house showed that the voice
had been heard.
Cleveland has been "at it," but, at latest
advices from the near neighborhood of his
mind, there has yet been na offer made of
any one of the cabinet places, and no
choice indicated. Bayard is rumored to
have declined an offer; but that is doubt
ful The H. V. B. correspondent of the
Commercial Gazette has telegraphed from
Washington a columnful of a nightmare
rode by Senator Edmunds, which he styles
a "midwinter night's dream, illustrative of
the supreme sanctity of Dictator Ed
munds' august senate." Edmunds will
perceive, on reading it, that H. V. B. is
displeased with him.
Rev. Washington Gladden, of Colum
bus, is one of those preachers who think
that bis profession is concerned in public
measures for the promotion of morality.
He is one of the most active men of Ohio
in all movements of reform. Gladden is
a good man who is not afraid of soiling
his hands even in politics. While he is a
preather, he does not forget that he is al
so of this world.
Our mayor, Captain Constantine, is
noted in the Washington dispatches as on
route from the capital to New York.
Cleveland is in New York. It is a coinci
dtnee that is likely soon to be a concur
rence. Constantine will doubtless have
an audience, and will probably make some
remarks with reference to Ohio, and
Springfield, and postoflices, and "offensive
partisans," and things of that nature.
They have a good committee for the in
vestigation of the Hocking-Valley troubles.
Senators Reed'and Wolcott we personally
know to be good investigators; also Bar
gar, representative. The others we take
on good recommendation. But they must
all look out for the railroad passes, and
good dinners, and wine, and things. Let
them understand that the state is watch
ing them, and that this is no picnic that
they are engaged in.
Prohibition will not prohibit is places
where there is an overwhelming public
sentiment against it. The experiment in
Iowa is proving that In some points of
that state it js reported to be successful.
But there are other points where liquor is
sold as freely and drank as abundantly as
ever it was. To enforce prohibition there
must be an overwhelming prohibition
sentiment right on the spot. Local option
embodies this idea; and local option is at
tended with measurable success in Georgia.
The U. S. senate is not only a body of
millionaires, but it is getting to be a syndi
cate of railroad men. Presidents, solici
tors, directors, large stockholders, and
other relations-in-law of railroads are al
most, if not quite, a majority in the sen
ate. The John C. Spooner just elected
senator from Wisconsin is another addition
to the railroad strength in the American
House of Lords. No longer ago than last
winter he was lobbying against the for
feiture of a railroad land-grant in the same
congress to which he has now got himself
sent to vote on land-grants and such. A
senate so constituted is not going to let
any interstate damage to its interests slip
through there. Therefore the Reagan
house-bill stands no chance of the senate's
sanction.
Abu Klea Wells has become a historical
battle-field. Fifteen hundred Englishmen
met ten thousand Arabs there and de
feated them in an open field. Savagism
fought valiantly against civilization, but
civilization triumphed. The mortality list
tells the story: from eight hundred to a
thousand dead Arabs, and the English
loss less than a hundred. Egypt is Eng
land's meat. The siege of Khartoum will
be raised, and Gordon will be fetched off,
if he wants to be. What is then to occur
is further along. It may be easier lor
England to get into Egypt than to get out
of it.
Turkey has made a motion toward as
serting her old sovereignty in Egypt;
probably encouraged to it by the attitude
of the great powers of Europe toward
England. This has stirred up the British
Jingo; and the Gladstone government has
determined that there shall be no Turkish
troops landed in Egypt and no Turkish
occupation of any portion of its territory.
This determination has imparted new ac
tivity to the naval stations of Chatham,
Portsmouth, and Woolwich, and troops
are moving forward to the Mediterranean
at a warlike rate. England can not let go
her hold of Egypt; and it is not improba
ble that there may yet be a war of nations
round the pyramids, with forty centuries
looking down on it from their summits.
The O. S. Journal commends the ad
dress, in pamphlet form, of the Ohio Divorce-Reform
League and- in that com
mendation we heartily join and says,
"the tronble is in the statutes of the
state." If that were the only trouble, it
could be easily reached. But the trouble
is deeper than that far deeper than that.
The discussion will have to plow into the
subsoil away below legislation. But it is
making a good beginning, and we have no
disposition to disparage the beginning.
But the Journal does not instruct when it
says that legislation is the remedy for the
trouble, any more than it would by saying
that legislation is the remedy for drunken
ness. Laws are only an expression of the
sentiment of the people. The sentiment
of the people is the root of all troubles.
Preble county presents a man as a can
didate for member of the board of public
works. It is Captain P. Folkerth, of
Camden, that connty. He is a man of
ability, integrity, and untiring energy. He
served his country faithfully during the
war, and was the capturer of the noted
guerilla Mayo. His popularity in his own
county is not bounded by party lines, and
he wonld increase the Republican vote
there very materially. Preble county has
never been represented on the state ticket,
and Captain Folkerth' nomination would
be a deserved recognition of a good Re
publican county and a good Republican
citizen thereof. It is early to begin to
think about these things; but we can con
scientiously commend Captain Folkerth to
the consideration of the Republicans of
Clark county.
Allowances must be made. Editors of
newspapers must have something to write
about. It will not do for an editor of a
representative paper to fail to instruct his
readers. JeS. Davis, therefore, is in the
nature of a boom. What Jeff says about
his alleged state of mind when he took
the notion to secesh and what other peo
ple think about Jeff's alleged state of mind
at that crisis of his faculties are subjects
of instruction. Instruct, O instruct The
man with an arm off or a leg off needs
instruction. Write able editorials thereon.
These men must have opinions about
such things. It is for the able editors to
furnish these opinions. Show them that
secession, as Jeff. Davis viewed it, was
logically wrong. Prove to them how it
can not be defended under oath to the con
stitution. And so forth. Give them
words. Fight their battles over again, on
paper. Sling the ink. There must be
something to write about.
England and Italy have drawn closer
together lately, and Germany and France.
Policies as well as politics make strange
bedfellows. Italy now appears to be
England's only intimate ally on the conti
nent. But, if these two nations put their
ncies together, they can cope on the
water with all Europe combined.
FRENCH SPOLIATIONS.
In the Revolutionary war, when France
was so generous to the United States, the
latter undertook to guarantee to her the
security of her power in the West Indies,
as a sort of reciprocity of benevolence.
But the guarantee was not worth any
thing because the American government
had not the naval force to make it good.
It was soon abandoned by this govern
ment, and a declaration of neutrality be
tween England and France was substituted.
This was a violation of contract between
nations. The losses in merchant vessels
during the naval warfare between France
and England were great; and, when there
was a subsequent settlement between
France and our government, these losses
were turned over to us as our legitimate
debt, according to contract.
That was a long time ago. Congress
after congress, through two generations of
men, has been appealed to for payment of
this debt, in vain. This is what every
body has heard of as the "French Spolia
tions" since he was aJoy. The original
claimants and their children, and perhaps
most of their grandchildren, have died
since the debt began to run. It would be
a shocking debt, if paid with interest.
But the United States has finally de-
cided to pay the principal, at least The
bill for that purpose was passed by this
congress on the 14th instant. Though
the claims are mostly in the hands of
speculators, bought for a song, yet the
court of claims is authorised to adjudicate
them and report them for payment We
suppose this is business, but it feels like
robbery. ,

A Story of Pullman's Lawyer.
The Fiillman car people, aro here
again, renewing their contract for
sleeping and parlor service with the
Pennsylvania Railroad. Spoaking of
Pullman recalls Judgo O. A. Lochrane,
of Georgia, his law er. Tho Judge is
a character. I saw him in one of his
best moods. Ho is an Irishman, and
as warm-hearted and witty as tho great
est of his race. Ho told mo a good
story of the campaign. "1 met a friend
in Chicago," said he, "and asked him
homo to dinner. Ho had a few drinks
on, but not enough to affect him much.
We were just seated at the table when
the servant appeared. She had a cast
in her eye which my friend discovered,
and called out: "Why, Judge, you'vo
got a cock-eyed servant girl! I thought
that a little rough when ladies were
present, but turned the subject and
said nothing. Dinner went on, and
Sretty soon ho exclaimed: "Why,
udgc, your roast beef is too rare and
your turkey is too well done.' This
was pretty bad. but I thought I'd let it
pass, when he turned and began to dis
cuss the tariff question. Then I had
to bit him." Philadelphia News.
The First Fly Fisher.
The first and indeed the only writer
amongst tho ancients, so far as wo
know, who makes mention of fishing
with tho artificial fly is Aelianus, who
lived in the third century. In the fif
teenth book of hi history he says: "The
Macedonians, who live on the banks of
the River Astraius, which llows midway
between Ilcrco and Thessalonia, are in
the habit of catching a particular lish
in that river by means of a fly called
liippurii-.; a cry singular insect it is
bold and troublesome like all its kind,
in size a hornet, marked like a wasp,
and buzzing like a bee." From his ac
count of these lish they must have been
trout.and he exactly describes the
method in which a trout feeds at pres
ent, "when one of them sees the fly
floating down to him, he approaches,
swimming gently under the water, fear
ing to 'move the surface lest tho prey
should bo scared. Then drawing near
er underneath, he sucks the lly, as a
wolf snatches a sheep from the fold, or
jin eagle a goose from the farm-yard,
and having done o disappears under
the ripple."

Guarding Against I'iphthcria.
1. If one is subject to catarrh, or in
flammatory affections of the throat, es
pecial care should be paid to the condi
tion of the general health, and to tho
general hygienic surroundings. There
is reason to believe that diphtheria
originates spontaneously in such per
sons when the system is debilitated
from any cause.
2. During the existence of diphthe
ria avoid crowded gatherings in badly
ventilated rooms, as in theaters, public
halls, and even churches. This is of
special importance during cold weath
er. 3. Secure thorough ventilation and
perfect cleanliness of nurseries, kinder
gartens, schooi-rooms and other places
where children are cared for. Parents
should make it their personal business
to secure these in tho home and nurs
ery, and to see th-1 those in charge of
schools, etc., are also mindful of these
important matters. Children are more
subject to diphtheria than adults, and
tho disease is more fatal with them;
hence the necessity for these precau
tions on their behalf.
He Hen lly Was Surprised.
When some liigh-:ilarird official re
signs to accept a fatter salary on some
other road the men under him, from
wipers to engineers, or from brakemen
to train dispatchers, or from ehaiumen
to engineer, must chip in their hard
earnings and bin him a set of silver, a
gold watch and chain, or some other
article that he does not need perhaps.
There are caes where such a presenta
tion comes deep from the hearts of tho
donors, but often the matter is set afoot
1)3 some ambitious underlings who do
it not from pure friendship, but with
the selfish motive of bettering their
own prospects. A great many thought
ful officials have set their foot down on
the foolish custom, .regarding it in the
light that acceptance would no likely to
place them under obligation to certain
employes whom they may be compelled
to discipline in the future. A few days
ago a prominent official of this city en
tertaining these views left the city on
an intended tonr, and several of his
subordinates went down to the Union
depot to see him oil. As he stood on
the steps of his car they arranged them
selves in a hollow square, and there
was an awkward pause. Then one of
the number advanced with a packago
and began to speak. The official
frowned and held up his hand in a de
precatory gesture. The spokesman
was brief, and wishing his chief a pleas
ant trip aud assuring him of the fidelity
and good w ishes of all his men, he pre
sented as a token of regard "this bou
quet." It was amusing to observe how
quickly the general manager's faco
cleared up. It is safe to assert that he
would have refused to accept the con
ventional gold watch, or silver set or
cane, but he eagerly reached for the
bouquet and was more proud of it than
a boy of his first boots. Cleveland

I'lug Makes the Monater Sick.
On almost any evening there may
be seen gathered in the cosy room of a
West street hostelry much favored by
seafaring men a company of red-faced
old "shell-backs" who casually drop in
when they happen to make the port of
New York to get a taste of the fragrant
hot Scotch or .spiced mm, for which the
plnco is famous among all merchant
sailors. It is a favor to be admitted to
the room, which is rarely accorded to
any one who has not made a dozen
"deep-water" voyages" or "doubled
tha two capes" two or three times. A
spirit of the utmost democracy pervades
the place. Afore-the-mast "Jack" Is
every bit as good as a mate or a cap
tain, and enjoys his glass of steaming
grog just as much as his superior in of
fice and without the slightest restraint.
Everybody seems to know everybody
else, "and if he doesn't he soon becomes
acquainted when he is admitted to the
charmed circle. Here almost any night,
amid the fragrant perfume of the hot
liquor and the thick clouds of smoke
from the chipped "navy plugs" in the
short pipes of the sailors, old shipmates
meet, exchange stories of recent voy
ages, recall old tales of toil and peril
that they have undergone together, and
spin sometimes the most marvellous
yarns for the edification of the assembly.
SOME WONDERFUL STORIES
are told at times. On a recent occasion
a Tribune reporter was present at one
of the reunions wheu one of the old
salts, "Tom" Hughes by name, a tall,
powerfully built Liverpool Irishman,
who seemed to lie a general favorite,
reeled oil" the following "twister":
"You know, mates, he said, "that a
while back I took a turn on a whaler.
I'd never had any of that kind of work,
and thought I'd take a try at it anyway.
It's a rum kind of business, any way
you take it good enough for Kanakas
and Portuguese, but no more of it in
mine."'
"Right you are. mate," chimed in a
weather-beaten old fellow of SO years or
thereabouts, who looked as though he
had been knocking about the world for
at least 100 years. I've been there my
self, and it ain't fit for a white man no
ways."
"Well, I shipped into a tight enough
little bark, out of New Bedford, bound
on a three years' cruise in tho South
Pacific lisliiug grounds," continued
Hughes. "I was before the mast on
the 2'2't lay, that is. I got one barrel of
oil out of every 225 caught. We'd
been cruising around among the South
Pacific Islands for upward of six months
with varjing luck, doing pretty well on
the whole, when one day the lookout
gave the crv that we was always look
ing for: "Thar she blows and thar she
breaches!
SPAKJI WHALE
three pints on the lee bowl' " aud the
speaker gae the call in the true sing
song way of an old whaler. "Well,
mates, if you've never been aboard a
whaler oil don't know what a commo
tion that sound makes. It was a beastly
hot day, and the watch was Iving
around the deck doing all sorts of fittle
odds aud ends, of which you know
there's always plenty aboanf ship, and
principally hunting out shadv places.
But at the first sound even thing was
alive. The watch below was turned
out. Men were rushing to their boats.
Tho old man run up to the foremast
he:m with his glasses to sight the
whale, and the officers was tearing
around cussing the men fore-and-aft.
It's a strauge tiling, but a mate seems
to think a .sailonnan can't work unless
he's cussed at. I was bow oar in the
first mate's boat. We was the first in
the water, and we laid down to our
work in good fashion, and it wasn't
long before we was up to a big bull
whale. The mate put the iron to him
in good shape. The brute sounded and
we laid on our oars waiting for him to
come up. We'd waited maybe five
minutes when I happened to lbok into
the water, and there right under us I
saw the old fellow coming tip with
mouth wide open. I gave one yell and
then"! was paralyzed. Before I knew
where I was the jaws of the whale had
closed on the boat, crushing it like an
eggshell, and I felt myself gulped down
his throat
LIKE A BIG OYSTER.
You can just bet I felt as if I'd been
keel-hauled. At last I gets into the
whale's stomach. 'Well,' says I to my
self, 'Tom, old boy, you've got yourself
into a nice pickle,1 and I thought of all
the bad things I'd ever done, and made
up my mind that my time had come. I
sorter remembered about some fellow
that the Holy Joes tell about that got
swallowed by a whale, and the whale
carried him ashore. I thought maybe
my old hooker would do the same
thing. Well,' says I to myself, 'there's
no use making any fuss about it. I
guess you are here to stay my boy, and
you may as well make yourself as com
fortable as you can.' So I hauls out
my plug of tobacco and bites off a big
chaw. You know I'm a handy sort of
chap to spit. Well, after I had chawed
a little while I spit. As I did it I no
ticed that the whale's stomach gave a
sort of half turn. 'Blast me, if I ain't
got you, old fellow,' says I, and I pulls
out my plug agaiu and" chips it up as
fine as I could and sprinkles it all over
the whale's stomach. Before I could
see, I went sailing up his throat like I
was shot out of a gun, and just as I got
to the top of the water I was hauled in
to the old man's boat and taken aboard
the ship. I was sick for nigh onto a
month."
"Say, Tom," said the old man who
had first spoken, "I don't want to cast
no reflections on a shipmate's yarn, but
I would like mighty well to find out
what kind o' grog they served out
aboard that bark o' yours"?"
"Me, too," went up the chorus from
all hands. New Ydrk Tribune.
i
Holler Skating.
One of the most fascinating sports of
the present day is one which has been
known for years, but has only recently
become adopted as a popular pastime.
A few years ago only little boys and
girls could be found with roller skates
on their feet, some dodging between the
parlor furniture, to the great danger of
their own bones, and all perishable ar
ticles in the room, aud occasionally ven
turing out on the sidewalk. Now there
are large rinks built with smooth floors
especially adapted to roller skates, and
they are tatriniziil il:iik nnii nio-litlir
by ljuuilreds of pleasure-jekers.
Tnere an1, of course, several reasons
for this change in the course of events,
one of which is no doubt the great
change in the manner in which roller
skates are constructed. In theirearlier
days there was only a single set of roll
ers or wheels in the middle of the sole
and it was quite difficult to stand on the
ticklish support they supplied. Now
there is a double set of rollers, one at
each side, and it is almost as easy to
siHlitt oil tnem a ort the sole of n elioj'.
And, agnid, there is : great rhiingft iu
the cost to the liser1 of the roller skates
When thev were first introduced they
were so hedged about by patent ami
consequent high prices that scarcely
anybody could afford to buy them, and
it was only the little girl who impor
tuned her" rich papa that ever found
what a luxury they were.
More recently burdensome patents
have expired, and as the skates came
into more general use with the little
folks, older ones begin to think that
there was room for them, too. to enjoy
themselves in like manner. Thus there
came to be a demand for more avail
able places of exercise than parlors and
sidewalks, aud an ingenious Yankee
concluded to try the experiment of a
skating rink without any ice. It was
successful far beyond the anticipation
of its projector, and in a short timo
others followed in his footsteps in tho
building of more rinks, until now there
are so many rinks, and so well are they
patronized," that in some cities the thea
ters feel the effect in an apparent loss
of patronage.
It might seem at first thought that
the majority of the users of the roller
skates would bo drawn from among
thos who formerly cut figure eights by
design and stars by accident on the ice,
and of course many of them are re
cruited from these ranks, for roller
skating is not only warmer and safer
than spinning over the "tickley ben
ders" of our boyhood's days, but is
available at any time of the year. At
the same time, the incautious or un
skilled patron of the whirling wheels
may, by a sudden upward tendency of
the" heels and a downward inclination of
the head, study astronomy with asgreat
facility as he who takes h"is turn ou icy
fields. Pniladelphia Xorth American.
PROCF.SS OF MAKING SHOT.
How tha Globule Ara Formed In Their
Fait Through Ilia Tower.
Every person who has walked about
the lower part of this city must have
noticed a high, round tower, as high as
the roadway of the bridge, which rears
itself above the surrounding buildings,
and has small windows at different
places. This tower is in Centre street,
near Worth street, and belongs to the
Colwell Lead company. There are sev
eral of these towers in this city. They
are places built especially for "the cast
ing and manufacture of shot. The
tower rises to a height of 176 feet, ami
is fifty feet iu diameter at the base. It
diminishes in diameter as it ascends, be
ing aliout thirty feet across at the top.
It is divided into several stories. A cir
cular stairway, made of irofl? extends
to the .summit, giving access to the sev
eral stories. (Jrc.it height is essential
for easting, as the lead must cool in tho
descent, and thus assume a spherical
shape. If hot, it would flatten when it
strikes the water into which it falls.
The first method is making what is
called "temper." This is a mixture of
arsenic and lead. The mixture is melt
ed in large kettles, and is constantly
skimmed and stirred. It is cast in bars,
the same as lead. When the temper is
made, it is carried to tho top floor,
where there are kettles and a furnace
for melting it. The temper is mixed
with lead, as pure lead would assume
various shapes in casting; but when
mixed with the temper in the propor
tion of three tons of lead to one ton of
temper, it takes tho shape of globules
when It Is cast.
The casting-pans are largo colanders
round pans with holes perforated in
tho bottom. The casting is done on the
top floor, and the collander is suspend
ed over an opening in the floor, which
goes through the entire1 height of the
building to the ground, where there is
a well of water. The lead is melted in
large kettles, and is dipped out and
poured into the colander with ladles
which have Ion;' handles. It oozes
through the holes iu the bottom of
the colander and falls through the
opening to the ground floor into tho
well. The shot is taken out of the well
by small buckets fastened to an endless
belt, which runs over a wheel which
carries it from the well up to a long hot
metal table. Here the shot is constant
ly stirred by men with long rakes, and
the heat rapidly dispels the moisture,
and the shot soon becomes perfectly dry
It is taken from the "drying-table"
to the "screeners," a series of tables
with narrow openings between them,
the tables being set at a slight angle. If
the shot is round and perfect, it rolls
rapidly along these tables, skipping tho
openings, until it reaches a box- at the
extreme end, into which it falls. If it is
imperfect, it cannot roll fast, and falls
into the openings, under which boxes
are placed.
The shot then goes to the "separa
tors," which are a series of drawers,
not unlike a bureau, which rocks back
ward and forward by machinery. The
shot la poured into the upper drawer,
which has an iron bottom perforated
with holes of a certain size. The sec
ond drawer has holes of n smaller size,
and so on down to the lowest drawer,
the bottom of each drawer being per
forated with holes of a size smaller than
those in the drawer above it. The back
ward and forward motion throws the
shot from side to side, letting all the
shot the size of thfe holes or smaller
pass through into the second drawer,
while all larger than the holes remain
in the drawer. The same is repeated
down to the lowest drawer, so that each
drawer contains a smaller size of shot
than the one immediately above it.
The next process is "polishing." Tho
shot is put into irregular-shaped iron
boxes, which continually revolve. When
the box is nearly full, powdered black
lead is Jiut in. "The irregular motion of
the box throws the shot from side to side,
and the blacklead is so ground into it that
it can not be rubbed off. And it is this
that gives it the beautiful shiny appear

The Mischief-Making TVIepiioiicGirl.
The telephone girl was sleepy until
her beau rang up, when she suddenly
became conscious of all thai was going
on about her. She was anxious to pac
ify all the anger he bud felt at having
been lent to believe her worse than she
is, so she answered liini promptly, and
after a full explanation ht-r loxer said:
"Well, I'm glad to hear it, Eva.
Forgive rac those hard words I spoke to
you and kiss me."
"All right, dear. One, two. three,
smack."
The kisses passed .simultaneously, and
just then an old (ionmui w I10111 -liu had
forgotten to cut oil" before answering
her beau, shouted:
"Dere! I vas heard all about dot,
mine leedle gal. Now xoiist kiss ine

The girl disconnected him loiigenough
to tell her lover to do "lie kissing, then
restored him ami replied:
"All right, ton old darling, now

hearty smack and Fred responded to it
and haw-hawed right into Hie old fel

"Mine Oott, I vas ki-s a maul" the
