Amono lli startling statrmpi.ls in re
gard to niiont submitted by Secretary
Noble in his report, is the on to the ef
fect that over one thousand million dol
lar hare tx-en paid in pensions since
1841, tnd that there are now pending
four hundred and seventr-nine thousand
pension claims. Tbe secretary asks for
over nlnrty-stven millions for neit year,
and in reporting eighty-nine millions a
pai.l this year, h states tbat a million
ar.J a half of that sum was received by
Ots. ( ustos B. FtsK. into whewe
band fell all the public and private cor
respnnitmre of JrtTcrson Davis when bis
plantation in northern Mississippi was
captured in lMi3, gave a reporter bis
views of Davis' political character as
shoan therein, lien. Fisk declares thai
spiiit dt loyalty to the union was
breathed throughout the letter which
Mr. Davis wrote in the stormy period be
tween sod is.',fi, snd specifies tbe
endorsement birh was on tbe bark of a
letter written t him In tbe autumn of the
latter rear by a committee of Maine dern
ocrste. These people urged him as sec
retary of war to cripple tbe military es
tablishment of the United States by every
means in hi power and at the same time
increase the lighting strength of the
southern states. On the back of this Mr.
DiVis wrute; ' Not to be entertained for

ili-i Ma?on. a negro of Aledo, and a
graduate of the high school of that town,
has Written a couple of communications
to the Aieilo ItHnrnit, adJresscd to the
Joiul people, in which be urges them
ti assert their political Independence, and
cease to be the voting chattels of the re
publican party. ile shows thai tbe re
publican party deserves no credit for
freeing the slaves, because the emanci
pation proclamation was issued purely as
a war measure, and gave the confeder
ates the privilege ef laying down their
arms within ninety days and retaining
their slaves Every republican president
a'.nCL-Grant has been elected by the col
ored vote, and Mason declares tbat If the
aixroei were to withdraw in a hotly from
the republican party It could not elect
another prendect in a hundred yearn,
lit addrei is a strong d'vument, and

One of tbe checkered. Ivy grown bits of old
York as It was under tbe Tudors and Stuarta
is the king's manor house, which ts in part
the building where the wealthy abhota of 8L
Mary ditwnsed princely hospitality. Little
of tbe ahhatial palace remains except the
wide and heavy staircase. Here ancceasive
snonarchs were received, and here Charles II
held parliament. Now, after iiutructiv
vicissitudes, it is a school for the blind; and,
a such, tb county mamortal of tb immortal
philanthropist WUlia.ro Wiiberforca. Buty
blind rbiklrea here receiv education and
instruction in useful handicrafts. Quadran

which, Strang to say, are not there in un
usual number. Royal and noble coat of
arms, which task all tb pedantry of heralds
so explain, adorn tbe principal entrances aad
some of tb rooms.
Tb Thursday concert of the inmates Is la
progress as we enter. Tbe performance of
tb blind organist and the tone of the lead
ing female vocalut of singular purity,
pitch, precision, and compass somehow or
other sound like voices of the receding past.
An unconscious undertone, lamenting irre
coverable loaa and breathing unutterable
y earning for completeness of life, enters into
the melody. It plaintively appeals to what
ts tendersat and ruot Christlike in the au
dience, ami meets fullest response from the
most highly gifted natures.

Tb regular quarterly attack on th word
pant appear on tiro In The New York Sun.
Tb war Is useless. Tbe American people
have adopted it, and protests, ridicule and ar
guments are all wasted. Whether w like it
or not, pants is her to stay. Th averag
American regards the word trousers as an
English affectation, and Is no more disposed
to adopt it than tb word waistcoat for vest
or topcoat fur overcoat. '
Since tb word pant will stick in th face
of all opposition, It la sensible to make th
bast of it. And there is nothing very bad
about It. Both Tb Sua and Tbe Herald de
clare that pants are not pants, but trousers;
but It Is also true that trousers are not trou
sers, but breeches; and that breeches are not
anything worn off tb (tag. Originally
trousers ere applied to breeches worn by
pages a hip and thigh covering. Pantaloons
resemble tb leg-ooveriug of today mora
than trousers or breeches for pantaloons
cover th entire legs and feet. A tb
modern leg coverings are pantaloons cut short,
why shouldn't we cut th word short and call
it nt( Besides, w hav some justification
in this In th word pan tale t, derived from th
word utaloon. Tb pautalet, as may be
seen in old prints, was a leg-covering for
women and children which reached to th
shoe-top and resembled th modern made leg
covering more than trousers as originally
known. Tb word trousers comes from tb

Lt us accept pants as a good democratic

Aa te the Adreotlata.
All this is nothing new. It has been going
on for thousands of years. Soou after the
death of th apostles the early Christians al
most unanimously accepted tbe view that
tbe end was to come in their time. And this
view was bald by a large section of tbe church
till tbe time of ConstanUiie. TertuUian
points to tbe fact that Christianity had been
preached la all lands aa a proof of the near
consummation. In that noted (sutiige begin
ning, "Hesternl vumus, et unplevluiun omnia,1
etc., ("We are but of yesterday and yet w
have filled all tbe Tot1dv," etc ), he taunts
tbe heathen with tbe prospect of their speedy
overthrow. And again he reviles them for
their love of tb circus aud tells them tbey
may soon xpct a show surpaaung all tbey
can imagine: th blue vault ablaze, the Chris
tians aeceodiog In triumph, tbe earth vomit
ing bell fire, tbe Idolaters calling on the moun
tains to bide them and tbe vaunted heroes
and sages of heathendom trembliug before
th judgment Seat of llod. After Coustan
t1o. th Christians grew more practical, and
Second Adventlsm bas slue been only an oc
casional panic or tb tenet of a limited sect.
The Crow as a Traveler.
A street taxidermist with a stuffed crow
attracted tb attention of several hundred
people on Clark street last Thursday. "The
crow," be said, "is a great traveler. He is a
social sort of a bird, too. You don't often
see a lone crow. He generally bus a mate,
but m.et generally he bas several of them.
Crows like to keep together better thau any
of the feathered tribe, unless it is wild geese

Salvation by Work.
Th human race has been saved by haviug
to work. It digged its way out of its prime
val pit by work. When it discovered lu na
kedness and bad to Iss clothed, It worked for
It raiment; when it appreciated tbe respon
sibilities of fatherhood to tie the feeding and
rearing of tb young. It worked under tb
Impulse of an affection tbat was reflued
above the Instincts of tho brute. Tb rela
tion of husband and wife was mad possible
and proper only by tbe willingness to work,
tbat it might gather to It tbe necessaries of
existence and finally be adorned by the
prompting of Intellectual as well as physical
want. If Mother Eve is responsible for all

Federation will take no radical step to
bring the et?ht-hour work day in force at

rest until tho eight-hour work day is an ee
tablished fact all over the country. It ts
propoHrd to bring about this result quietly,

Philadelphia, Dec. 1L Tbe Knights of
Labor ar about to open their warfar on the
sugar trust, and within a month xpect to
fir on it. Tbe action resolved upon I
neither more nor lea than a general boycott
on sugar trust sugar. Toe plan is first to
laaj-n what re finer lea are in the trust, what
their brands are. and what wholesalers buy
tbera; then similar information aa to the
non-trust refineries I to be eccured. Then
the knights, s -Kitted by the Farmers' Alli
ance and other organisations, are to notify
their retail grocers a to what sugars are
trust sugar and what are not, and to assert
their determination to cease buying certain
brands and kinds. By means of their secret
organization through tbe labor men employed
la tbe refineries and by means of the co-operation
of the non-trust refineries, it is expected
that this secret work will be fruitful at the
start. It is also exported tbat In many states

DOES DEATH END ALLT

brochure written by a lawyer of this city, in
which be und ertake to prove by Circum
stantial evideeae tb existence of a life here
after, CoL Roltert Ingersoll, among other re
flections, gives the following passage:
"If we admit tbe existence of a Ood of In
finite waslom and compassion, we may say
that there most be a world better than
this; but ho w do we account for one
worse? Tha'. is to say. If injus
tice triumphs here, why not t beret If
honesty goes vitbout bread in this world,
why not in aa ttnert Certainly Ood will be
no better the, than now. Still, It may b
potktible that a Ood of infinite love and com
passion will s v reward those who suffer
through suffering itself that all that hap
pens will be consistent with compassion.
It mir I that we hve no more,
that we go bat k to the unconscious dutt, and
yet tbe heart will always say, 'Terhapa
there is anotht-r life."
