With Ufa's currents fall and riser
In little from this will It matter?

Though the world look on with scorn.
While we patiently try to do our best.
And our every effort turn to Jest

EXECUTIONS FOR WITCHCRAFT.
Carious Farts In the HUtory of English
Lawyers dispute as to when tho last trial
and conviction for witchcraft took pluce In
England; and many of the profession, hav
ing so little respect for the memory of Sir
Matthew Hale as to be ashamed of ttiess
sentences, have endeavored to make out that
the last case occurred In the Seventeenth
century, lu the reign of Churn's II. Hutchin
son, of the "Historical Essay on Witchcraft,"
writing in 1718, declares that there had been
no execution of a witch for thirty-six years.
It Is certain, however, that Jane Wenhatn
" was sentenced to death for witchcraft at Hart
ford in 1712, and Dr. Parr declares that four
years after at Huntington Mr. Justico Powel,
the same judge who had tried Jane Wen
bam, passed the capital sentence on Mary
Hicks and her daughter Elizabeth (a child 11
years old), who were actually executed ("Wen
ham got off on a point of law) on the 17th of
July, 1714 The same writer asserts that
"two unhappy wretches were hung at North
ampton in March, 1705, aud in Julyu1712, five
other witches suffered the same fate at the
Doubts have been thrown on Dr. Parr's as
sertion, and on the source certainly much
later in date than Hutchinson's essay from
which he derived it; and perhaps there we
must abandon the imaginative contempla
tion of so piquant a contrast between en
lightenment and barbarism as would be pre
sented by the spectacle of witches beinc
hanged while Spectators and Tutlers were
being written, while Swift was pamphleteer
ing on the conduct of the Allies, and Pope
poetizing the rape of Belinda's lock. Anv
how, the act of James I coutinued in force
for another twenty years. It was not re
peated till 1736, when at last it occurred to
the legislature that the real mischief of the
offense of witchcraft was to lie found in the
manner of the witch's dealing not with the
aevu but with the public.
In repealing the ancient statute, therefore.
punishment was very wisely provided for
"persons pretending to exercise or use any
kind of witchcraft, sorcery, enchantment or
conjuration," or to discover stolen or lost
property "by any occult or crafty science."

A NEWGATE CUPBOARD.
Masks of Some of England's Criminals
with Remarks by the Guide.
It was the practice of tho authorities up to
ue time oi the murder of Mr. Uriggs to take
a cast of the heads and faces of criminals
after execution. Our guide commenced his
tour of the prison with an exhibition of a
cupboard full of these memoriuls. It was a
ghastly show of fearful countenances, low
foreheads, large brutal mouths, bull necks,
strong jaws and weak, broad chins and nar
row, and beneath them all tho mark of the
rope which had strangled them. Seen in this
fashion the criminal countenances were no
doubt considerably discounted, but not so
seriously as a caricaturist of some of our pub-
lio men would have us believe. How certain
of the shining lights of the day might look.

a temptation to any artist who is opposed in
politics to the man he is drawing, but he
would have to give rein to his bitterest im
agination to match the countenances in the
warder's cupboard at Newgate. I could not
help thinking that Franz Muller was some
thing like but let us not be personal.
"This is the head of Martha Browning,
who murdered her mistress, you will remem
ber, In Park lune; killed her for the soke of
some bank notes which, when she got them,
turned out to be on the Bunk of Elegnnce.
This (tapping the grim bust with a curious
familiarity) is Franz Midler, who murdered
Mr. Briggs, and after denying his guilt almost
to the last, confessed it in a conversation
with his Lutheran priest This is (ireenacre,
who cut the body of his victim up into pieces
and hid them in various parts of the town."

"Burked" was a lively one for many a long
year after Burke was hanged in Edinburgh
and Bishop and Williams at Newgate
"These are the heads of Bishop and Will
lams," said our guide, pointing to a particu
larly ugly couple; "they murdered a little
Italian boy and offered tho corpse at King's
college ior twelve guineas; they were body
matchers. And this Mrs. Brownrigg, who
used to take little girls as apprentices and
then murder them; that was in 1783."

Science Against Grit.
Eminent experts in naval warfare have
come to the conclusion that in the future the
nation which puts most science into its ships
and their armaments and handles them the
most scientifically will have an immense ad
vantage in sea fights over less scientific ri
vals. It is said that the French seem to be
drawing ahead of other people in these mat
ters, but the Americans and English are still
ready to trust largely to native grit and for
titude for the triumph of their respective
countrymen on the sea and all along shore.

THE MILITARY VISITORS.
latereatlBc Talks With secretary
Prertor and ral SehefleM
Views of Rork Inland Arsenal.
During their brief stay and reception
at the Harper house Monday evening, an
Argus reporter took advantage of a
lull in the handshaking, for a few rev
marks with Secretary of War Proctor
and with General Schofleld. Both these
distinguished army chiefs expressed not
only their surprise at the magnitude of
Rock Island arsenal, the work being done
there and tho capacities of the institu
tion in the event of a demand for munis
tions of war.
"Oh, it is a splendid arsenal," said
Secretary Proctor. "We were very much
pleased with it, and while the real ob
jective point of our trip is Leavenworth
military prison, we found much of prac
tical interest on the island. For instance
the projreted water power improvement,
the plans and specifications of which we
spent much time in inspecting."
"Were you ever out this way before,
Mr. Secretary 1" asked the scribe.
"Why, bless you, sir," was the reply,
"I was here before you were born I
guess; though I must say that there is
not much hereabouts now to remind me
of my previous visit. In 1854 I tarried
here sad in Davenport on a trip to Cali
fornia. I remember the circumstances
quite well. There was not much arsenal
here then, but a beautiful country just as
you Lave now."
"What is the policy of the war depart-
ment as regards internal improvements?"
was the question put by the news man.
"While all necessary improvements at
military posts such as you have here are
to be made, the real aims at present are
to consolidate to some extent and
strengthen the forts on the Indian reser
vations, especially to give attention to
those forts throughout newly opened
country for settlement such as Oklahoma.
Not that we anticipate any trouble, but
we like to keep everything in the best
The Argus representative asked if.the
secretary had given any particular atten
tion to the specifications for the stone
work for the new dam at Rock Island
Arsenal and the aim to give local skilled
labor as much of an advantage as possi
ble by having the cutting done on the
island. The secretary said be had not.
but he meant to do so on his return to
Gen. Schofleld also chatted pleasantly.
"We are enjoying ourselves greatiy," he
remarked. "The trip, notwithstanding
that we are kept pretty busy, is a sort of
recreation to us, coming as it does as a
change from the confining duties of office
work. It is particularly pleasing to me,
after the New York centennial celebra
tion, in which I had my hands full."

The First I'ernou Singular.
When a great man overworks the big per
sonal pronouu I, people are ready enough to
laugh at him and charge him with having un
exaggerated sense of his own importance.
But the use or misuse of the first person sin
gular is no test. Washington, a modest man,
used it twenty times in his first inaugural ad
dress of 1,:j0 words, and Lincoln, another
modest man, used it forty-three times in his
first Inaugural of 3.58S words. Arthur, who
was not modest, but was always on dress pa
rade, used the big I only once in a brief ad
dressof 431 words. Cleveland used it five times
in his l.HSJ words, and our new president
used it fifteen times in Hxaking 4,5b8 words.
This much abused pronoun is all right. It
is in Ix'tter taste to use it when it is needed
than it is to dodge around it in a dreary mass
of circumlocutory phrases. When a man is
afraid to speak of himself in the first person
singular, it shows a weakness in his make
trp. Every man has the Ego in his mind,
whether it is on his lis or not. After all, it
is the man himself. There is no use in hiding
it. Let it come out. AU-mta Constitution.

spring medicine, for two reasons :
1st, The body Is now more susceptible tc
benefit from medicine than at any other season.
