Message of tho Mexican President.
The Proildcnt of the llcpubllo of Mexico has
sent n messago to tho Moxlciiii Congress, In the
course of which ho saj s development of all tho
National Industries has steadily Increased, and
asserts ho l contldent tt-o proserlty of the llc
publlo will remain uninterrupted. He states
that tho postal reform uitborlzed by Congress
will no introduced soon, ivnen mo piopcr
time lins arrived ho will nresent n commercial
treaty with the L'nltod States to tho Senate for
lMltlcntlou. Ho oxplalns the falling olf of 1m
poitatlous thus: when the Central and Na
tional railroads commenced construction, they
drow all their mimoy f mm nhroad. Since they
have completed long sections of tho line, their
tralllo receipts, with government subventions,
have diminished their need of foreign money.
The sudden Introduction ot largo amounts "i
lorelgn money lowered discounts and facili
tated business. Slnci these enmnaiiles have
eased druwlng all their money from abroad,
money has become scarcer and Interest on
samo Increased ; consequently orders for for
eign goods havo slightly docreiised.
'lite County Doctor's Olllco.
Ill appropriating tho apartments of the new
Court Houso to tho various county olllccrs one

a neat room nicely carpeted and furnished
with a handsome circular desk. Above tho
loir on tho outside was the sign "Doctor,"
mid the whole wus 111 keeping with the pro
fessional dignity of the olllco. Dr. H. I.. 0 raves
tcemod to rcallzo that dignity to tho full ex
tent, and purchased a new suit of clothes to bo
In keiiiilmr with tho olllee. Hut Mr. Commis
sioner llraden objected to tho doctor having
an oillce, and. It Is said, without any nuthoritr
irotn ins leuow i;onimisionors. no
had tho sign removed, and allotted
the olllco to County Treasurer
Lacoste, who has also another olllco adjoining.
Til h led to some words between tho venerable
doctor and energetic commissioner, In which
tho lormer declared that ho had his opinion or
thoso who ucted In tho way tho commissioners
had done, and would not take possession or the
oillce until the County Commissioners asked
him to do so, then ho would tako off his hat,
tay "Thank you, gentlemen," and go In. Tho
lvn Ims since been replaced and it Is under
stood that tho doctor Is to havo his ulllco.

A Cincinnati milliner, who had jnst returned
