Internal Revenue Commissioner Mil
ler says that, under section 3,220 of
the Revised Statutes,' all the money
paid in on account of the income tax
will be refunded to the payers by the
Treasury Department without delay.
Acting under this . section, internal
revenue taxes wrongfully collected are
daily refunded by his office, and the
action will be taken as to repaying the
income tax collected.' It amounts to
only $73,000. : , .

: Cleveland's letter to Hoke Smith ex
pressing solicitude for the poor Indian
is masterly. It ought to gratify : Lo
much to know that the G-eat Father
at Washington thinks that 'the best
interests of the Indians will be found in
American citizenship, . with all the
rights and privileges which belong to
, that condition." We knew straight
along that there were some classes of
citizens of this , Republic in which
' Cleveland had an interest. Proof tag

taxpayers. Now the secret is out.

Associate Justice Field is celebrat-

of the Supreme Court of the United
States. He is a remarkable member
of a remarkable family; the only one
which ever furnished at the same time
two members an uncle and nephew
to ur highest court.' Whether Judge
Field is the member of the court who
would have been selected by a popu
lar vote to remain longest on the
bench, Is somewhat doubtful as there
is a general impression that he is the
corporation member of the court - He
has had a remarkable career both in
public and private. Among the me
morable happenings that made him
known was the attempt of Judge Terry
to kill him as a result of the Sarah,

The following item clipped from the

"The new- telephone company of
which Mr. Thos. W. Gannon and Mr.
P. G. Farrow are the promoters and
capitalists, are meeting with unpre
cedented success in soliciting sub
scribers throughout the city. ; Up to
4 o'clock yesterday afternoon they had
obtained 178 subscribers and ' not one
in fifty who were solicited refuse. The
new exchange is bound to be a "go.
An exchange tells of a man who
mortgaged his farm to buy his wife
a pair of diamond ear rings. -The
wife took in washing - to pay the in
terest on the mortgage, but on the
first job lost one of the sparklers in
the suds; whereupon she tried to hang
herself in the barn, ' but the rope
broke and she fell on a Jersey cow
worth $150, and . broke its back.
Her husband then attempted to shoot
the cow to put her ont either misery,
but the gun barrell burst and destroy

away with a lightning rod agent, and

Some of the most amusing stories of
the tricks of memory are those which
illustrate the facility with which prop
er names escape the recollection. They
elude you like greased pigs. "Then-1
had it on the end of my tongue," and
''I recall your face, but for the life of
me I can't place you,'' are so common
ly, heard as to excite no comment
By the way,' how do you spell your
name?" inquired a young lady of an
old acquaintance. She took this way of
recalling, without embarasssment, a
name that unaccountably escaped her
recollection. "S-m-i-t-h," he replied
to her confusion. : It is related of Joe
Jefferson that he was, one day intro
duced to General Grant, an event that
naturally impressed him strongly.
Later in the day, according to the New
York Mail and Express, he got into
an elevator of the hotel at which they
were both stopping. A short, heavy-
set' man also got in, lifted his hat to
Jefferson, andinade some remark.' "J
beg your pardon. Your face is fami
liar, but I cannot recall the name,"
said the actor. ; General Grant cour
teously gave his naJne. "I got off at
the next floor for fear I would ask him
if he had ever been in the war, " Jeffer
son said in relating this story. Worse
than that, he once forgot his own
name. . He had gone into a postoffice
at some small resort' where he was
unknown, and asked the clerk if there
was any mail for him. "What's the
name asked the clerk. "Name? Oh,
yes certainly. Why, let's see. I play
Rip Van Winkle, you know." "Jeffer
son," said the astonished and delight
ed clerk, "Yes, Jefferson, thanks,

mail and bowed himself out
Valuable Qualities of Vegetable.
The following information may be
useful: Spinach has a direct effect on
the kidneys. " The common dandelion,
used as ' greens, is excellent for the
same trouble. Asparagus purges the
blood. Celery : acts admirably upon
the nervous system, and is a cure for
rheumatism and neuralgia. -' Tomatoes
act upon the liver. v Beets and turnips
are excellent appetizers. Lettuce and
cucumbers are cooling in their effect
upon the system. . Onions, garlic, leeks,
olives and shalots. all of which are
sbxdlar, possess mediciical virtue of a
marked character, 'stimulating the cir
culatory system, and the consequent
increase in the saliva and the gastric
juice promote digestion. Red. onions
are an excellent ; diuretic, and the
white ones are recommended to be
eaten raw as a remedy for insomnia.
A soup made from, the onions is re
garded by the French as an excellent
restorative in weakness of the diges
tive organs." .. t '';'' ; ...4 .
