T'his is an entirely new saloon, conve

new bar-fixtures. The bost brands of liquorns
and cigars kept for customers, and polite
attention guaranteed. The saloon is opened

Grlef in Germany.
The gpcial and domestic misery pro
duced in Germany by the war is very
great. A German paper states that in
the provinces of Westphalia, at the be
ginning of October, there were 11,817
married women,.the wives and wid
ows of soldiers, together with 2,713
children obtaining relief from the pub
lic funds. In Hanover, 9624 women
and 26,418 children were dependent
upon the public for support. In the
Rhenish provinces there were 18,812
married women and 29,619 fatherless
children who were utterly destitute.
Thus, in only three Prussian provinces
there Were, last October; 85,750 women
and 78,750 children in a condition of
misery and want, and it is believed
that destitution to the same extent pre
vails in the other provinces of Prussia.
The price of provisions is extraordinar
ily high, and the winter, it is predicted,
will be unusually severe. The injury
done by the potato rot and the rinder
pest has also been severe, and the con
dition of families of the peasants left at
home is very miserable. About nine
tenths of the males arein the landwher,
and the women and children thus de
prived of their natural suppoters will,
it is feared, perish from starvation.
Beecher took strong ground In his
Thanksgiving sermon In favor of ,"the
heathen Chinese." ,"We wanted lat
bor," he said, "tand, therefore, God
bless the Dane, the German, the Swede,
and all who will come; and GI bless
a little more the Chinaman, because he
needs a little more."
