A single bar of fino gold of the weight
of 14.00 ounces was sent to the bank of Cal
ifornia at Saa Francisco a few days since,
of the value of 28,034, the product of five
weeks1 labor of only four miners in the
Kretno Enterprise mine.
It is reported, says the NewYork Indi
cator, that the Illinois Central road will
immediately proceed with building of the
New Orleans Pacific railway. The project
of the Illinois Central railroad embraces
tho connecting of Baton Rouge with Pont
chatoula, on the line of the Jackson road.
A Nkw Yorkeb has patented a new
grip-sack, which, as Bernard Smyth would
any, "beats the world." It cotikUis ,of a
valise made of thin robber. When folded
neatly it can be carried iu the vest pocket.
When the possessor of one enters a strange
town, all he has to do is to inflate hi
"turkey," register bis name, and get three
days' board on the strength of a gallon of
wiud. Then, when the clgrk, rubbing that
diamond pin of his, and gently caressing
tho big seal ring on the little finger of his
left hand, hiuts something about pnymeut
of tho bill, the owner of the pateut valise
instantly retires to the sanctity of his pri
vate apartment, lets tho air out of tho bag
and folding the latter utntly iu his pocket,
travels off to the next caravansaiy. Tho in
ventor is realizing a fortune.
Such of our readers as are inclined to the
belief that Ben Butler amounts to nothing
in the political economy of Massachusetts,
will bo surprised to read such utterances as
tho following from bo reliable a sheet as tho
Boston Herald. What the Herald says of
Butler can truthfully bo said of no other
American living not even of Kearney, of
California: ''Suppose." says the Hemld,
that Ben Butler should die to-morrow, what
wuuhl become of his party? Who tUe
would unie tho discordant elements which
make up bi, following? What mau in the
whole State could take his place? It in
cen as soon B mentioned that his party U
wholly personal. It has no common be
lief, principle or purple, if jt i,mr, -xl
could take Ur some other representative, he
being out of the way. But, ij J0 bloul(1
pop off, hi party, organized aa it U(IW j(
could not hold 5,000 votes. Tho Ik-mo-craU
would return to their fold'. Tho re
beaded Republican would disperse. The
whole Butler party would vanish llko the
buolcu fabric of a dicam."
Thb character of the" pian re n Jcrs' hW
story a very curious one. Wo refer to tho
story by prof W. F. Harper, tho principal
of the Danville, (.Indiana, Normal school
Tli0 6tory runs thus: Last November Mr,
Harper put 500 in his pocket ami went
fa Indianunolia to nav off some debts. Ho
reached Indianapolis, but thoro all tracoot
him wis lost. Ho boro an irreproachable
character, was an educator of note, his iustitu
tion was flourishing and hi domestic rela
tions were extremely felicitous; heuco his
disapperance created tho most profound aa-
touishmcnt, particularly when examination
revealed that hi financial condition was
good, with no woman in tho case. Public
opinion finally settled to tho belief that he
had been foully murdered and gradually ho
passed from view. A few days ago his wife
received a letter from him, postmarked
Cheyeune, in which he stated that he had
been knocked down and robbed in this
city, and then when consciences returned
a few weeks ago ho found himself among
the Indians, fifty miles west of Cheyenne,
and still suffering from a wound in lus
head received iu November last iu this city.
His stow sounds like a dream. His father
immediately left for Cheyenne and yester
day telegraphed from Kansas City that he
had found Prof. Harper and would arrive
home to-morrow. The news has rekindled
the excitement in Hendricks county and his
friends are ready to accept his statement,
while others aro disposed to doubt it.
m YOURSELF IN 1113 PLACE.
It ba3 not escaped general observation
that workingmcn, and especially such as
follow miscellaneous pursuits, naturally
jrravitate toward the lanre cities. This is
notably the cue with the foreign born cle
ment, and is due, in part to the gregarious
impulses of tho average human being, aud
in part to the prevailing iuiprtsionthat
where there are so much money and busi
ness, there is employment for all who seek
it. It matters nothing that tho fallacy of
such a deduction has been learned by every
laboring mau that finds his way to the large
cities the idle workingmcn continue to
throng to the. cities, as if moved by the cer
tainty that thiir experience will prove au
exception to the general rule. Under the
operation of such impressions and impulses
the labor . markets of tho cities become
grievously overstocked -T employment-seekers
find nothing to do at any price, and are
soon taught what it is to feel the want of
even a crust of bread. In the miiUt of a
great abundance they are brought face to
face with nakedness and hunger; and
seeing the wealthy, squandering in idle
pleasures the money that would bring them
ample food and apparel, it is net to be
wondered at that ibey feel embittered and
resentful, and are ready to plunge into any
extreme to 'bring about a more equitable
distribution of tortune's favors.
Put yourself, comfortable reader, in the
place of the penniless, unemployed work
ingman in our great cities. At every step
you would see the evidences of comfort and
wealth. The whirling wheels of tho prince
ly merchant's carriage would fling mud iu
your face as it sped by, and the glisten and
rustle pf silks and broad cloths woru by the
well-to-do who throng the fashionable ave
nues, would constantly vex your eyes aud
ears, yet from all the splendor and ease aud
luxury you might see, you could not win
for all tlio toil your hands comd perform
enough of common food to keep off
the pans of lumber. That, in such a
strait, the voice of tho designing dema
gogue, denouncing the rich man as tho
enemy of the human race, and calling upon
poor men to assert their "rights" at any
coat, would influence you, and, perhaps,
win you to bloody extremes, is but natural
cau scarcely be denied. That you
brought your want and misery upon your
self by coming to the city, you do not stop
to think. You only think of your woes
a thousand fold aggravated by the wealth
and magnificence arouud you, which you
are made to feel have been wrested from
the sweat and toil if the millions, destitute
' Aud now, what is the remedy? In dis
cussing the subject of unemployed labor
iu great cities tho St. Louis Republican as-
sumes that tho remedy obviously lies iu
attracting this surplus of labor to agricult
ure und causing its diffusion throughout the
country. In tho Old World there is no
remedy fur a surplus of labor in tho cities,
because the country is all occupied, und
there is generally little chutice fur work or
of independent fitrniitig. With us it is
wholly different, for iu most places in the
country tiiero is not enough of available
labor, and the territory awaiting cultivation,
und where laud Is readily obtainable, is al
most Illimitable. The tail is that our labor
ing classes, owing to ninny causes, and
among well imbu peculiar American thirst
for excitement and rapid ndvaun nient in
life, are drifting away from the noblest of nil
work thetiliingof thesoil, Even the sons of
the farmers feel the infiueiiceiifthemeti cipol.

A JOKE ON THE DOCTOR.
good joke was unconsciously not off
rcceutly on a local physician. In arraui'-
ing a patient's broken leg he connected It
with a tackle having a flat iron a a com

to let it stay there until his return. But
sho wanted that iron tho next dav bail, and
used it. While at work she 6aw the doc

THE FAVORED FEW IN OUR HIUII
The editor of the Peoria National Dem
crat, has fired some wry effective broad
side,, of lute, into the abises that have
crept into our common school system
Refering to the Peoria High School, which
may be taken as a fair aver.ure sample of
all our High Schools, he nukes the follow
ing damaging disclosure:!
In the course of the tUip discussion in
the Board of School Inspectors, last Friday
evening, the fact was de'eloped that one-
third of the whole time of tho principal of
the high school last year aiid for aught we
Enow every year is taken up exclusively
in teaching Greek to from live to a dozen
scholars, every one of whom- are well able
to take lessons ot a pnvato tutor whose in
structions will bs much moro thorough
than that of the principal. Tho principal
lust year received f 1,500, and by a vote ot
the board of School Inspectors he is to re
ceive 1 1,500 agaiu this year. One-third of
f 1,500 is f jOO. .Now here is a sum ot 5ot)
spent on say live young men and women,
tor Greek, m the high school, while literal
ly hundreds of children down in thu Sixth
and Ninth wards cannot get instruction
even in spelling their a-b, abs, because
there is no school boubo of any description
in which they can be instructed, while the
parents of these children, many of whom
are poor, pay luxe on their little stock of
household goods, a cow or a pig or a dray,
to pay this $500 expended for teaching
Greek to high seboul scholars, oneot whom
is an inspector's son, and that inspector a
banker, and cue of the wealthiest men in
the town, able to build thu f.nt residence
on the most fushinuahlu street in the c.itv.
