Wk presumo that in about another week
the Republican organs will lmve proved
tht Gen. Hancock was Jtff. Davis' secre
tary of war. It has been proved since his
nomination that the report of his having
been a Union soldier during the war wits a
mistake. He wasn't iu the army at all.
The charge against Hancock that ho
would obey the orders of Tilden if sworn
, la wan started with a flouribh of trumpets.
But it seems to have been dropped tho
"uddenest" of any story yet started. First
because Gen. Hancock had some very inter
esting letters from Gen. Sherman support
ing bis views on this subject, and second
because that's just the kind of a candidate
tli Democrats have been looking for.

Tbe Tcoria Journal makes haste to say
that tho state has been more prosperous
under Cullom than any other governor
she las had for twenty years. It further
mors hsvh there has been no fraud or
corruption under his administration.
How comes it that tho Journal is eo wen
posted! What was the matter with
Oglcsby's, Palmer's and Bevcridge's ad
ministration that the palm should he
given to Culloruf It is a fact that Cul
lum is under more suspicion of being
crooked than any other governor wo have
nad since the days of Mattcson. His most
intimate counsellors and advisors are
among the most crookedness running back
for years. He docs not go straight into
dirty work himself. Nobody accuses bim
of that, but it is well understood that he
has several mills grinding, and ho 60 dis
poses of his powers and opportunities as to
serve himself and frcouentlv much to the
detriment of the public service.
CENSUS OP. THE INDIANS.
THE WORK TO BE UXDEK TnE CONTROL OK
A special dispatch . from Washington
says: General Walker has placed the task
of attempting to procure full census statis
tics of Indians not taxed to Major Powell
and his assistants, who aro working under
the Smithsonian institution. Colonel Gcr-
rick Mallery, of tho army, is now engaged
in preparing a special set of schedules for
recording Indian statistics. These will
embrace heads calculated to set out all ma
terial tacts of the Indian situation, and the
condition of each tribe. Colonel Mal
lery has made a close study
of the American Indians, and is well fitted
o prepare schedules which shall cover all
ho more prominent features of Indian life,
and bring out many points in the line of
his researches which will bo both new and
This is an important matter in many res
pects. Hitherto all estimates for the pur
chase of Indian supplies have been based
upon the supposed number of Indians in
each tribe, but there is ground tor the be
lief that the number has been vastly over
stated in respect of many tribes, and that
large sums have been wasted in conse
quence. "INITIALS, PLEASE."
There was a Kansas City Journal report
er on the train that carried Grant from Ga
lena, and one of his first exploits was to
sail through the cars getting a list of the
people aboard. One of the persons he
struck was a short thick set man with a
beard, who sat cazing pensively out ot tho
window with a cigar in his mouth.
"Are you one of the invited guests? 1
asked the reporter, tapping tho man on the

persisted the reporter.

"Initials, plaase," asked the reporter.

HANCOCK UNDER FIRE.
AN EX-CONFEDERATE SHAUrsnOOTEK 8 FOUR
TEEN SHOTS AT HIM.
New York 8'in Nashville Letter.
In the county of Putnum, in this state,
lives an old soldier who was a gallant mem
ber of company K, seventeenth Tennessee
infantry, C. S. A. His name is Stewart. He
relates a thrilling incident of the "late un
pleasantness," in which ho played a most
conspicuous part on the oncside, while Gen.
liancocK was on mo outer, ai me laning
. l . a a. .1 . I
of Fort Harrison in 1804,
Stewart was stationed at a point in
orncar the fort from which ho could distinct
ly witness the movements ot the federals,and
especially tho actions of Gen. Hancock,
who was gallantly leading his men to vic
tory. His large figure could bo plainly
seen as he rode up and down the line giv
ing orders to bis men, as he had done on
nvwy an occasion betore. btewarts eye
was kept on tho general until he
approached within a distance ot 000 yards
of where Stewart was stationed, when it
occurred to the latter that no better time
would be presented to cripple an
army on tuc new. oy emp-tying
the saduie ot its commanuiiig
officer than this; so, without knowing who
the officer was at the timo, he tired, i rom
the point where he was thus stationed he
fired fourteen successive shots at the distin
guished general, all ot which were without
effect. Stewart says ho continued to fire
until his ammunition gave out, nnd that
when his gun was discharged the last time
the general was not over fifty yards from
him. He was, alter tho capture, lnlormed
who it was ho had but a short time before
made a target of.
Stewart recalls the story of Washington
at Braddock's defeat, andot the Indian
who fired at the heroic Virginian again and
again, and who then threw down his gun,
exclaiming, "He has a charmed life!"
Stewart firmly believes that some higher
power saved the Union general. He will
vote for Hancock.
TOO MANY WHEELS.
The traveling clock tinker has arrived.
Ho visited O street, and at last overhauled
Htid repaired one clock, His rap at the
door had a business air to it, and the good
lady of the houho stated, in answer to his
inquiry, that tho clock was out of repair,
and in lnct had not run well since it was
last cleaned. tMio didn't kunw what wsh
the trouble. He might look at it if he
whs a mind to, and if he could fix it satis
factorily it would save taking it down
town. " If I cannot fix it, madam, it can
not be done, and I will put it warrantable
repair for $1," was the reply of bland assu
rance which won him the job. Ho had
f-ot " it laid out" and dissected on the din-ng-rooni
table, and was putting it togeth
er when the lady, feeling pleased at having
io little trouble in getting her regulator
into motion again, asked what bo found to
be difficulty with It. " Oh, it needed over
bading and actting up properly," ' Having
it set up and ready to go he was perplexed
to find he had one wheel lctt, and glancing
back to see whether that fact was noticed
by the lady, to bis annoyance he saw that
it was, but braving the situation he laid it
one side in an unconcerned manner and as
if it was a common occurrence to find a
surplus of wheels in timers, and giv
ing tho penunium a swing, found that it
started oil all right, and to his surprise
kept going Watching it for two or three
minutes, and seeing that the wheel was
from some locality which did not produce
a stop, he assumed an air of completed
task and self-satisfaction,and said : "There,
I guess it will stand by you now." "Yes,"
said the lady, who was curious to see what
he was going to say about the wheel ; "but
how about that extra wheel?" "That,
madam," he replied, "was what ailed your
clock. Whichever one of these city
botches tried to repair your
clock last got that wheel
mixed in from some other cloek, and
it would never have gone in tho world un
til the thing was overhauled and the Bur
plus gear taken out. I frequently find the
6ame difficulty." he continued, "and the
only way is to leave the extra wheels out."
This was an astounding proposition to the
owner of the clock, and beyond compre
hension. But what could she 6ay against
it? Her clock would not go before, and
now it did. So he received his dollar and
departed. He had not got off the square,
however, before 6he noticed her clock be-
ean to hove a sickly tick, and showed un
listakable signs of its old habits, nnd by
the time he was fairly out of sight it had
again come to a stand-still, and she has not
seen anything of the traveler since, nor
told her husband where that wheel came
Nrs. Winslow's Soothing Syrit. Rev.
Sylvanus Cobb thus writes in the Boston
Christian Freemen: We would by h3
means recommend any kind of medicine
which we did not know to bo good par
ticularly for infants. But of Mrs. Wins
low's soothing syrup we can speak from
knowledge; in our own family it has pro
ven a blessing indeed, bv giving an infant
troubled with colic pains, quiet rest, and
parents unbroken rest at night. Most pa
rents can appreciate these blessings. Here
is an article which works to perfection, and
which is harmless; for the sleep which it
affords the infant is perfectly natural; and
the little cherub awakes as "bright as a
button." And during the process ot teeth
ing its value is incalculable. We have fre
quently heard mothers say they would not
be without it from the birth of the child
till it had finished with the teething siege,
on any consideration whatever. Sold by
all druggists. 25 cents a bottle.
It is no longer an idle dream or boasting
to affirm that Fellows Hypophosphites,
wherein are united nature's forces, will
strengthen man and make his life not only
endurable, but sparkling with rude and
joyous health : this then we recommend
when vitality is on the wane, or when the
organism becomes enfeebled.

The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society,
indicated by the fact that for Eleyen years its average an
nual New Business has been
Company in the world, is due, in a great measure, to its well
known promptness in the payment of Death Claims, and its
rule never to take advantage of technicalities where an
equitable claim exists.
As a GUARANTEE of this, and to counteract the perni
cious influence of a technical policy, adhered to by many
companies, the Equitable makes

After the policy has been in force for three years.
"The Equitable Life lias paid since its organ
