THE MISSISSIPPI VALLEY.
Tho value of tho river convention, to be
held this month, will depend in a great
uieasuro on the force with which it impres
ses the Union with the fact that the Missis
sippi valley is national, and all other parts
of the country sectional. This is literally
true. No other work of internal improve
ment begins to compare in importance with
the development of the great national
Every stntc whoee witters are tributary to
the Mississippi will be specially benofifrd
by the increase of its commercial capacity,
Indirectly, of course, what benefits (.in
state benefits also every otfier state in (hi
great sisterhood. The whole United States
has common interests. Rut tho benefit to
the states bordering on the Mississippi und
its branches from the improvement of any
part of the great water-way, whether it be
in Louisiana or Missouri, is immediate and
direct, und of the kind of which special
notice is taken in the assessment of better
ments. The convention will seek to induce
congress to grant a liberal appropriation for
the improvement of the channel of the Mis
sissippi, and thereby to directly benefit
half the states and over halt the territory of
The rivers of the Mississippi system pass
through or border nineteen of the thirty
eight states, or just one half of all, to sy
nothing of three great territories, the In
dian, Dakota and Montana.
Nor are these waters, even in the most
remote communities, mere trout brooks,
but navigable and actually navigated
streams. Of the nineteen states tribu
tary to the Father of Waters, fourteen are
practically valley states, having interests
which are to a great extent under the river's
influence. The others, as New York, Pen
nsylvania and Alabama, though sending
important currents into the great central
artery, aro less affected by it. Among the
valley commonwealth proper are the great,
central and rapidly-growing communities
of Ohio lndinna, Illinoio, 'Wisconsin.
Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska ami
Ksnsas states of more material value to
the Union than any other nine that can bo
The area of the nineteen river states is
1,208,977 square miles, while the nineteen
non-river states count up only 855,702
square miles. Over 350,000 more miles of
country contribute to tho grand aqueduct
than aro comprised "in all the rest of the
United States. This surplus is enough to
allow New York, Pennsylvsnia, West Vir
gin! and Alabama to be thrown out ot the
list of river states altogether, with a good
slice of Texas besides. Tho Mississippi
basin, all told, including its headwaters in
all tho states and territories, comprises a
drainage area ot neirly 1,200,000 sqiurn
These figures show clearly enough that,
as a mere matter of physical geography,
the convention will deliberate concerning
the immediate well-being of more than half
of tho country. This alone is enough to
condemn the claim that the improvement
of the great stream to secure tho highest
capacity fcr transportation will bo a sec
tional affair. Tho absurdity ot that idea is
apparent without reference to the fact that
the internal commerce of the fourteen states
in tho valley proper is at least as large as
that of all tho rest of the country. -Democrat.

You Are No Goutloman.
"Do you call yourself it gentleman?'
Is tho commonest and most withering
form of sarcasm in use, not only
Htiiong snobs, but among coslermong
ers, coal-heavers and tho liko. To
liersons of admitted pretonxions to gen
tility tho question is frequently put.and
perhaps negatively ansnored by tho
questioner when ihe superior person
declines to recognize a falso or exorbi
tant claim. TlniH, not long ago I was
asked if I called myself a gentleman
by iv "young lady" at a railway refresh
ment bar because I domnm-d at paying
her a sovereign for not having run
away with n purse that I had inadver
tently loft rm tho counter for fivo ntin
minutes; and two of ber friends do.
dared that I was "no gentleman" with
out leaving uny doubt in tho matter. I
have been called "no gentleman" for
not paying a cabman three times his
furo, aud for objecting to pay in fur
nished lodgings f-r articles which. 1 had
neither ordered nor consilium!. A
loafer in tho stroot hai sometimes
fiickod up a glove before J could pick
it up myself, or told me thai my hand
kerchief was hanging out of my pock
et. In any other country than Eng
land the commonest man p.ting such
attentions as theso would bo insulted
by tho offer of a reward, but in this
country I have been free'y called "no
gentlemen'' for not encouraging what
is vulgarly called "cadging." It seems,
indeed, that to bo a gentleman in the
eyes of largo classes of tho community
you must pay vvhiitevor may bo ilo
mandod of you upon any pretext, and
ask no questions.
Socially, tho term "gentleman" has
become almost vulgar. It is certainly
less employed by gentlemen than by
inferior persons. Tho ono speaks ol
"a man I know," tho othor of a "gen
tleman 1 know." In tho one case tho
gentleman is taken for granted, in the
other it seems to need specification.
Again, as regards tho term "lady." It
is quite in accordance with the usages
of society to speak of your acquaint
ance, the Duchess, as a "very nice per
son." J'eoplo who would say "very nico
lady" aro not generally of a social class
which has much to do with Duchesses;
and if vou speak of one of theso as
a "person" you will soou bo made
to feel your mistake.
Shakespeare's Pathos and Wit.
Not one of the plays of Shnkespcaro
was reproduced iu another form;
scarcely a word or sentance in any of
tho thirty -seven can bo traced 'to other
sources. This is as wonderful as any
thing else in Shakospoaro. Oilier poets
"toil after him in vain." Team and
laughter, tho inseparable) attendants of
surpassing genius, aro equally and at
all times at Shakespeare's command.
Tho wit of Dogberry and tho sailors in
"Tho Tempest," tho wit of kings in
"Ileury IV." and "Love's Labor Liost,"
the wit of Falstaff and Haiulot; native
wit, philosophic wit, tho wit of tho fat
and of tho loan man; wit in tho half
glimmerings of dawning rea.i'iu trench
ing upon madness; tho wit of tempora
meuts like Mereuiio's, of topers like
Sir Toby Reich, as mischief as in Maria
and Cleopatra, of confident villainy as
in Richard III. all theso and many
moro flow from him with inexhaustible
fertility. Nor h tho pathetic and tho
tragic exhibited under less multiplicity
of forms. Nor is it less sudden and
meteroic than tho wit. The reader is
taken by surprise. It llashos on him
with tho suddenness and vividness of
an electric Ibsh. 1! 1 s prostrated aud
melted by it uc.oio be is aware.
Whether tho render bo proparod for
what is coming, whether tho poet in
tho consciousness of his might fore
warns him that he may bo fore-armed,
or whether ho darts on him by surprise,
tho result is tho same-it is inevitable.
In FalstalPs ridiculous exploits, though
the whole sceno is inexpressible comic,
the burst, "Ry tho Lord, I know yo as
well as Ho that mado yo," etc., is as
sudden and surprising as if it had
Hashed upon us out of the darkness
out of tho uiost serious scone; as iu
"Lear," while every libro of the hoart
is quivering with Irrepressible emotion,

conspicuous in its common-placonoss
against tho rest, sweep away the littlo
self-restraint that is left to us with the
Btiddonnoss and overwhelming force of
