A woman writes to a New York paper up
proving the Chinese bill, ami expressing the
hope that the president will not hesitate to

women in smallness ot feet.

Thk admission of women into certain law

a willingness on the part of almighty man

price ot gas. Tin y say that a good quality
of gas is furnished in the city of London,
for forty cent- ocr 1000 feet, and, outside
of an avaricious desire to uccuiaulatc a
fortunate every month, they see no reason
why the gas companies of Chicago, should
charge 1.00 a thousand. If $1.00 is an
exborbitant price in Chicago, what kind of
a price is ? 2..0 to $3.00 per thousand in
Cairo? Gentlemen who arc adepts in the
use of stinging expletives, will 'please not

The following extract trom the conversa
tion of a Washington Post reporter with
one of the Department clerks may serve to
throw a little light on the way things are
done in Washington :
You would be eurprUcd to know how mnrh waa
collected for Johu Logan's reception. The drum
mere went through every one of the Department,
and pearcely a man cacttped. It is perfectly won
derful how much money it takei to meet thee con
nant demands. I believe somebody U getting rich
out of un. .Many a clerk actually payi out money
that he needs to buy corn bread for hi family, aud
here wc are taxed to death for torch-lijjht procen
tona, ferenudee, and ovatrone, nnd for scores of
things that you don't knotf anything about. They
would difcharge a man if'bedld not sometime con
tribute. Thk Greenback delegation in Congress
are Harboring the delusion that they w ill
hold the balance of power in the forty-sixth
(Congress. Grunting two of the four Cali
fornia Congressmen to be elected in Sep
tember to the Republicans, the Democrats
will still have 149 members, or a majority
of live over the Republicans and greenback-
crs combined. Rut, as all four of the Cali
fornia members will be democratic, the
democratic majority w!ll be nine. Of the
thirteen Greenbackers eight are Demacrats,
and, in the organization of the House
will vote with the Democrats. Hence, the
chance for the live Republican Greenback
era to sell out themselves and their Demo
cratic confederates to the Republicans, and
thus give to that partv the organization of
the House, is very slim indeed.
Il.vii llutler of South Carolina, assailed
F.dmunds, of Vermont, as Uurnside,of Rhode
Island, assailed Conkling, of New York,
every Republican paper in the country,
would have raised a howl about "Southern
ruffianism'' would have denounced Butler
as a rebel bully, who bad inaugurated the
old slave driver system of domination by
threats and violence. But Mr. Burn
side is a Northern Republican, aud being
such, he may grow purple in the face from J
his consuming rage, shake his fists, de
nounce a brother Senator us a liar, and the
performance resolves itself into "a pretty
little quarrel." Had Conkling knocked the
Rhode Islander down with an inkstand the
matter would have won the designation of
a "playful little circumstance." It is need
less to expect, however, that Republican
editors will accord even handed justice to
Southern Democrats. In that regard they
are he!plo.-s. They simply can't do it.
WkkkH not that North Carolina is held
uo to the pluno of civilization by her sur
roundings, she would soon drop back to
the condition of Connecticut, two hundred
years ago. It was in the constitutional
convention of North Carolina that the sug
gestion was made thai no man who does
not believe the bible should hold office or
be allowed" to testify in courts of justice.
And it was North Carolina who elected to
the United States Senate a man who makes
every postmaster of the land a censor of
the press. The Waddell amendment to the
post ofllcj bill gives to every postmaster
authority to exclude from the mails any
public print which, in his judgment, ought
not to lie circulated among the people
any docr.ment or newspaper that might
m.ve. a tendency to corrupt their morals,
Uuiuago their virtue or unhinge religious
convictions. The name of the idiotic bi-'ot
who would thus manacle thought and in
quiry, is Waddell. He will retire from the
position He disgracees on the 4th of March
next; but public scorn and indignation
should follow .Him into his retirement, und
there lash him into an appreciation of the
fact that this is the 19th century.
"Brick" Pomeroy is now u oaukrupt as
well in reputation' as in tho matter of dol

The former was admired for his keen, cut

It is mentioned, in connection with
"Brick's" return to La Crosse that the quar

a divorce. She is now rich and He is pen
niless. Tuv TltlK WAV TO IxviooHm:. The
true way to invigora'e a feeble system is to
infuse activity into the operations of the
stomach, that wondrous alembic in which
the tood is transmuted into the constit
uents of blood, the chief clement of our
vitality. Hostctter's Stomach Bitters, be
cause it accomplishes this cud, is greatly
to be preferred to many so called tonics,
useful indeed as appetizers, but inoperative
as aids to digestion and assimilation. This
sterliug cordial, while it invigorates the
stomach, Healthfully stimulates the liver,
bowels, and kidneys, ensuring the Cscap
through the regular channels of efftte and
useless matter thrown off by the system,
which Ls thus purified as well as invigor
ated by it. Its tonic influence is soon
made manifest by n increase of vital
energy and a more active and regular dis
charge of even- physical function, and V.
has the further effect of rendering the
system unassailable by malarial epidemics.
