OF THE MISSISSIPPI.
What will be tho outcome of the Missis
sippi river improvement is yet a matter of
doubt. Thero aro energetic western men
in Washington doing all they can to have
tho matter considered separately and as an
original proposition, but tho Committee on
Commerce persistently objects to this mode
of settlintr tho matter. They desire that it
shall come Into the Omnibus' River and
Harbor Bill and let the Mississippi take its
chances with all the little creeks and mill
dams of tho North. This committee is com
posed of Gibson, Louisiana; TTaHhburno,
of Illinios ; Townscnd, Ohio ; Ilarr, of Mich
igan; Gucnther, of Wisconsin; and Rich
ardson, Chandler, Ward McLane and Ross,
of the Eastern States; Pago and George, of
Calfornia; Reagan of Texas, and Whito, of
Tho construction of tho committeo indi
cates that no concessions will bo made to
tho West, and that tho same old plan of
giving tho West a bite while tho North and
Eiist gorgo themselves will be adopted.
The demand of the Western mon has been,
formulated. They want appropriations as
follows: $3,000,000 from Cairo to New
Orleans; $1,000,000 from Cairo to
St. Louis, and $500,000 from Cairo
to St. Paul. This demand is very moderate
considering the fact that tho Mississippi
is the greatest water thoroughfare in the
world, and that it passes through the great
est grain and agricultural region mw
known, and that its uninterrupted naviga
tion will benefit such a largo area of the
territory of the United States. Nothing un
reasonable is asked of the government
New York harbor alone has had more tha
ten times that amount of government money
bestowed upon it to improve and make it
secure, and all the coast harbors north have
been accommodated in the sanio way. Now
tho west and south asks a pittance from the
government to improve a great national wa
ter thoroughfare 2,000 miles in length,
which passes through nino or ten of tho
largest and finest states and territories on
tho continent, and it is only just and
proper that their wishes should bo complied
with. Let tho creek and mill dam a propo
sitions which eomo from the north be con
sidered by themselves and stand upon their
own merits, and let larger and more im
portant propositions be also considered sep
arately. But, if the committeo is obstinate
and obdurate, and will not listen to reason,
let us not pursue the dog in tho manger
policy, and because we can not get all we
want, vote against all appropriations for
tho Improvement of our rivers and harbors.
A half loaf is better than none to a hungry
man; therefore, if wo can't get all we want
let us tako all wo can got and patiently
wait till "reason resumes its throne," if
there is any such thiu" among northern
members. It is likely somuthinir decent
will bo done towards tho improvement of
our great water thoroughfare and if such
is the case it is quite as likely that the un
navigable crocks, and tho mill daniB of the
north will as usual receive tho lion's sharo.
After a while, however, it will dawn upon
tho minds of tho middle and New England
States that thero is a largo population liv
ing on tho west and on tho south of them,
and that theso peoplo will ultimately assicrt
their rights, and maintain them.
The retention of any waste matter in tho
Bystem produces injury. Tho collection of
"phlegm" or diseased mucus in timo of
cold or throat affection should bo prompt
ly removed. . Dr. Bull's Cough Syrup does
it more quickly ami effectually than any
other cough syrup mado.
Thumps iu Hogs.
I have hoard uud roiul, says a enrres
. jiondont of tho National Live Ktoek
Journal, Chicago, a great deal about
the euro of thumps in pigs. Tho com
tiliiint usually comes from thoso who
linvo their sows overfat lit furrowing, or
keen them confined in hi nail pens or
yards, tho sows having perhaps been
overfull for fairs. 1 think breeders mako
a sad mistake in feeding their best brood
bows for tho "show pou." Wo aro com
pelled by most fair associations to either
show our sows In jiig, or to swear they
have produced a litter wit hin the year;
they aro fed, likewise, to the detriment
of tlio next generation of pijjs. Whero
sows tiro fed so high beforu furrowing,
and kept in close pens, us they aro com
pelled to bo during tho fair, It Is very
injurious to tho constitution of the pigs.
Let your brood sows have access to a
prims, ailovor, or ryo pasture tho year
round; glvo them plenty of fresh dirt
aud water, and don t feed theru too rich
food. Get tho best boar (of whatever
breed you choose), always a puro-brcd
one, and you can raise healthy pigs, that
will mako pood feeders, to return a fair
percentage 'or your labor and feud. ,
MEN OP THE DAF.
LIEUT. GEO. . DE LONG.
The subject of this sketch, Lieutenan'
Geo. W. Do Long was born in Now
York City, in 1814. Ho was appointed
an acting inid.shipm.in in 1SC1, and in
the ordinary course of promotion he
was made lieutenant in lHo'9. In 1872
hn was iinnninti'il rifiv-tTMtnr of tlu mlisi
- t l n
ship Junmla, sent to the aretio sons in
search of tho survivors of the Polaris.
The" story of tho loss of tho Jennndte,
and of tho safe arrival of a part of hot
officers and crew at tho mouth of the
Lena River, in Siberia, after a boat and
sledge journey unparalleled in the his
tory of arctic adventure, has been be
foro the public for months. Societies
have eagerly waited, since her depart
ure for the frozen seas in 1879, for news
of her whereabouts, and the suspeuso of
the past year Is prominent in tho public
Tho Jcannclte was crushed in ice on
a I rr .1 . t 1 ..a. T a i
uie .)n oi Hist dune, more man six
months ago. For three months tho
brave Commander Do Long and hia
party were struggling with tho terrors
and dangers of the frozen seas before
they could reach human habitations,
and tlueo months more have elapsed
while the news of their escape traversed
tho barren wastes of Siberia, and finally
reached St. Petersburg, from whence it
was transmitted in all haste to every
part of the civilized world. Put beyond
the mere fact that tho Jeanndtc is lost,
and that most if not all of her crew aro
saved, nothing is yet known of the thrill
ing adventures through which this gal
lant ship and her brave company havo
passed. The story of nearly two years
of arctic experience is yet to bo told a
story which is awaited with anxious im
patience. No New Jokes
Thero is absolutely nothing now in
jokes. They never die. The jokes that
are familar to us are those which our
ancestors enjoyed. They aro found in
the most ancient literature that re
mains, and in hieroglyphics of the ruin
ed monuments of dead empires. Their
unchanged existence through these ages
does not allow that these, like the earth
and man, may have been created by a
Erocoss of development; they must havo
een created absolutely, At some- stage
of the work of creation the jokes wero
launched into being, and they have con
tinued to revolve by their own gravity,
tho same as the planets. None of them
can bo annihilated any more than mat
tor, nor can anot her be added. No per
son who attempts originality can get re
cognized as a wit, but any man can,
who has talent for memorizing the old
stock jokes and funny stories, and for
working them over on nil occasions.
We have much to learn from New
England and from tho giant west, and
we have na equal part in their achlev
njent; but the spirit and tho genus of
our own progress and future glory aro
our own, or else wo have to dio out,
move away, or become absorbed by a
Seoplo worthy of this inheritance.
"What is a promise, my boyP" asked
a school-teacher, whose reputation for
honesty was. not of the best, of one of
lUs younger scholars. "I don't know,
sir- timidly replied the youngster.
"Well, suppose you should njjip to col
lect a bill of mo, and I should U'll yon
to call around tho next day and I would
pay you, what would that be?" I think
that would be a lie, sir!" came from tho
little fellow who had evidently resolved
to commence the Now Year by telling
tho truth, no matter what the conse
queuces might bo. t .
Absence of Nowspapora. ,
Tbo sojourner in Venice wonders sad
ly how the people exist without news
papers. Yet they manage to do so in
very comfortable "fiushion. if appearances
may bo trusted. Tho red-faced Vene
tian sits lazily under the half-drawn cur
tain that takes the place of door to his
shor waiting for customers, knowing
nothing of the world without; the wo
men, bare-footed or In toe-slippers,
shutllo and gossip about; but no quo
lias a newspaper or book; the somber
gondolier quarrels for an extra contesiml ;
from his passenger, but he never heard
of America or England, and has never
read a word even of his own language.
All aro proud of Venice, even though ;
she is but tho doworloss bride of the '
Adriatic; proud that sho was oneo con- "
quorodbyNapoleon; proud of tho church
and square of St Marks; proud of the '

Moorish-Gothic architecture; proud, for.
