The advance of $3 a share in su

plainly who is benefited bj the new

The wardens of St. John's Episco
pal church in Portsmouth. N. H.,
have marked with brass plates, suit
ably inscribed, the pews occupied by
Iienjamin Franklin and Daniel Web
ster, and a chair which was given to
the church by Queen Caroline when
it was called Queen's chapel. George
Washington is said to have sat in
this chair when he visited Ports
mouth in 1767.
IUoriCKiso sometimes has its
sunny side. A woman now residing
in North Walpole, Vt., not so very
long ago. was employed in a rag
room at Bellows Falls. One day she
found a sum of money stitched in
the lining of an old coat. She quit
work at once and no one has ever
been able to ascertain the amount of
her find, but she has erected a neat
and comfortable house and is pros
perous and contented.
Todat the nation discharges one
of its most sacred and solemn duties,
yet it is one that it does eagerly and
with pride, the paying of tribute to
those who gave themselves in times
of the country's peril. There is no
more imposing sight than that of the
veteran placing the garland on the
tomb of his dead comrade, a task
which will be taken up by succeed
ing generations, and performed with
the tame reverence, and love, and
patriotism, as long as the republic

The recognition of the Cuban in
surgents as belligerents would bring
about these changes in their rela
tions to Spain and and the Uoited
States, tays the St. Louis Chronicle:
1. Cubans could come to the
United SlaUs and openly fit ont ex
peditions as they pleased. They
could buy ordnance, small arms, and
ammunition. They could buy arms,
warships and gnnboats. They could
marshal their men, fly the Cuban
flag, mount their dynamite guna on
the decks and sail from United States
ports without n word from the reve
nue cutters or a shot from forts.
But Spain wonld cspture those ships
if she could.
2. Bolligerency would give the
insurgents a standing among nations
which they do not now have, and
probably enable the agents of the
provisional republio to float loans in
