HON. W. K MUUPIIY.
The article published on Sunday, nom
inating Citpt. Murphy, has elicited a good
donl of comment, and we are pie .sod to say
nearly all favorable to the Hon. Gentleman.
The various candidates whoso innies h ivy
been mentioned are worthy tlio confidence
and support they souk at tho hands of tlio
party, but above all btiids Hon. W. K. Mm
phy as the one man who combines in himself
every element which commands the unitid
support of tho Democrats of tho districtf
and who will also command the Mippott
of di.-saliKliiid and independent Repub
licans. A man of the people, identified
happily with all the classes of producers
nnd manufacturers, with ctpital and labor;
a man with a personal and politicul re
cm I 1111 Assailable; a uriu. who by tlio
management of his personal affairs evinces
his ability to in image public affairs, and
who in his public life h is won tho esteem
of bis bitterest political enemies, ho is
surely the one whoso uatno needs but to be
mentioned, to win respect and support.
Let it be shown by the , convention to day
that we have a man who can walk over
all the factions whose only cohesive
power is plunder, and his n.imo is
We beg your pardon, Mr. Coup, On our
second visit we did see the pony walk on
stiltsaud the Salamaner Horse jump through
fire, and we have never seen a better show,
on the whole.
We repeat it at the risk of its becoming
stale, that Mr. Coup's is the bust show iu
the country if nut in tho world.
We can only repeat what all the leading
papers have saidj it is the largest ami beat
6hotf on the road.
On Sunday eveniug the Sabbath School
convention held a meeting ut the Presby
terian church. The building was crowded
with eager faces to -listen to the beautiful
Biiiin ou.l touching etr1 of th tweak
ers. The Carman family entertained the
audience with ksomo fine selections of
music. Their singing well merits tho
reputation they have gained. Their man
ner of singing is not the loud, unpro
nounceable, so styled singing of the day,
but soft, sweet strains whose distinctly
spoken words enter into the weary, sin,
sick heart and bid them look up and be
Mr. Jacobs' addresi was full of tender
thought and words and little stories, ill us
trative of a heavenly father's lovo and for
bearance. One incident, especially will bo
remembered, that ot the Scottish girl who,
after years of wandering nnd vice, leturned
home in the night aud found tho door un
locked, inquired of her sad but loving
mother why it was open? Slio replied she
had always been waiting for her return,
So also is tho door of heaven standing
open wide waiting lor tho prodigal's re.' urn.
One feature of tho evening was the sing
ing of Boveral select pieces by Mrs. Lans
deu's class.' This lady has dc voted a great
deal of . her time to cultivating the musical
taleut in the city, and those who were
fortunate enough to improve the opportu
nity thus afforded have done well, Mrs.
Lansdeu's form closes with this moi.th.
The class is now preparing for s grand con

Swinging a Maul at a Striking Mocliinp,
Louisville is full of street-fakirs and
tho latest addition to tho gang Is a man
with a machine on which anybody can
test thoir power of striking, by paying a
nickel, with a hammer or largo wooden
maul. A large iron pog, attached to
oue ond of n balanced bonm, at tho oth
er rid of which is a rod, is tho object
struck at. When tho pe is struck tho
rod is shot up through a groove. Tho
rod is made of wood, nnd nits numbers
on it ranging from 2i to 2,iOO. Tho
harder tho peg is struck the higher goes
Last night tho machine was in posi
tion aud one person nftur another was
testing his striking abilities, when along
canioa couple of countrymen. They
had every appearance of being old-time
rnil-maulers and way up in the scienco
of swinging a maul. Ono of them chal
lenged the otln-r to a test of tlmir res
poctivo htrenglh. The challenge waa
accepted and tho 1 hallenger, Roizing the
maul, let drive at tho peg nnd sent the
rod up to No. .ODO. At the next attempt
the rod flew up to No. CM. Tho chal
lenged party took hold of Hie maul and
struck tlio peg, at he supposed, a torri
lio blow, but tlm figures on tlio rod only
showed 4;"i(). lfo gazed at the rod ft few
rnomeiKS with a sort of disgusted look
and then laid down the maul.

lie then took off his coat nnd threw it
down on tho curbstone His hat went
in the same direction. Pickinz up the
maul, he rested the handle of it between
his legs, while he spit on his hands. Ho
braced himself nnd told the crowd to
give him room. Tlio owner of the ma
chine looked on in amazement as the
determined man raised the maul. Three
tintos tho maul described a circle; and
then, great Heavens! with what terrific
force it struck that peg! Tho rod shot
up, and out of the groove it went like a
meteor. Tbe last hopu of it it was
shooting across th" Turf Exchange over
towards Jeflersonvillo. Zouwn7c Cow-nierciaf.
Why Ho Winked at His Father.
Not long since a smart seven-year-old
son of our preacher, after service was
over, and the family hud returned home
from church, said, I'Pupa, do you ever
look at me while you aro preaching?"
The father, thinking that he was a
little hurt by supposed neglect, .said,
"Certainly, my son. I often look at
you and think of you when I am preach
ing." "But to-day you did not notice me at
"Yes, 1 did, son, several times," said
"Well, papa, did voti see me wink at
you twice or three times?'1
"No, my son; what did you wink at
me for when I was preaching?"
"I winked at you, papa, to get you to
stop, you were spinning it too loug."
