National gas promises to work a rivoln'ion
In the manufacturing business. It is already
largely used in I'lttiburgh where it Is happily
abating the smoke nuisance. It is also used
at Voungstown and East Liverpool, and
other manu'&ctunng points in this state.
It has also been found in Cincinnati where
th lower Salunan formation cro;s cut, and
just where our geologists have eaid that no

It is generally admitted that Uandall, f

The Sunday Globe-IUi-ublic has already
presented one of an Intended series of local
illustrations, (the second appearing today)
made expres'ly for this paper by an artlit
regularly attached to the staff. It was ic
tended at a joke on the proposed absurd lo
cation or the new government building on
Jail hill. Of this work of art the Ohb Slate
Journal, by the pin ol Its most talented edi
torial contributor, W. S. Furay, solemnly and
also ably says:
"I am tild that a picture lis been circulated
representing the proposed location as a distant
and Inaccessible bill, the top of which can be
discerned only by the aid of a telescope, and
the building upon which can be reached only
by means ol a balloon. Ihe picture is said
to be a good thing In Its way, and to exhibit
considerable wit and Ingenuity in lis getting
up. The public generally outside ot Spring,
field regard It, or course, as a caricature, lut
M having considerable foundation iu truth."

The ju Ige and his tiiends fought the ex

room, and the judge M ways choosis it when

Those of our readers who sensibly ulltct
the cotnfirtable seersuiker suits tor sumnur

champion in Judge Foraker, who weal s a
coat of the delightfully cool India fabric,
during the heat of the day, and when the
bondage ol tocial etiquette does not compel
the torture ol a dres suit, when the mercury
is spitting out of the top of the tube of the
thermometer. Speaking of the approaching
campaign, I asked the Judge what he thinks
of the republican outli ok
"It could not bo better," was the reply, i
God the U-ft feeling and the gieatest confi

the camp-meeting ale story in the Commer
