At the meeting of tiie State cent ':d

-A. f.'.eV probably bu: 'i'tle known, is.
that the United Mates nieki 1 five cents fur
niches u key to metric tm-n-uros and
weights, This coin is two centimeters in
diameter, nnd its weight is f;v grammes.
Five of them placed in a row will give the
length of the decimeter and two of them
wid weigh a decagramme. A? a kilolitre
is a cubic meter, the key to the measure of
length is also the key to measures of ca
pacity. A ineauri.,in"nt has been made of the

"Docs brain work kill?" That is the
question which lias bjen started by the
Loudon Times, and is now under discussion
iu the various leading papers in the United
States, and although we have read column
ufter column ot very forcible arguments
which were intended to convince the mind
that brain work does kill, we don't begin
to believe anything about it. In fact wo
know that brain work dues not kill. Look
at Brother Davis; consider the marvelous
amount of mental work lie perforins and
still the man is in the full enjoyment of his
health. This is conclusive. We ask no
other evidence that the London Times and
every other Times is wrong, ami we are
more than satisfied that u dyspeptic could
recover and grow fat upon brain work.
The social gathering, held at the resi

Pitcher's class performed its portion of

A meeting is to be held in Spring
field on the 2?th of the executive commit
tee of the state centra! committee. The
meeting is to exchange views as to wh"n
the state convention shall be held, etc.
There is a very strong feeling among Demo
crats that tho convention to nominate a
state ticket should not bt held until after
the national convention at Cincinnati, June
02 i. There is really no necessity of
holding it sooner as the delegates
to the national convention can be selected
by congressional district conventions
when and where a vote enn also be taken
tor the delegates at larg:, thus avoid;ng the
necessity of a state convention, at which dis
trict delegates to national conventions have
always been selected by the congres-ional
district conventions and reported to the
state convention. At nil events it is the
generally expressed opinton among Demo
crats that a state convention to select a ftate
ticket should not be he! 1 until after the na
tional convention, t.n 1 it is thought the
s?at: committee at this meeting will take
action in this directhn.

Dissatisfaction was yesterday expressed

Wilson, because of the account we had given
ot the raid made upon their private
