It 1 wast of time to ask liim how tbe
bowlder of Stonthrnge were conveyed to

represent the power which lies In tbe brute
force of multitude, and there's an end of
the question. EnKtneering now is an art
and a science, with which the rude work
of tbrsavasfl-a hns no sort of connection.

demonstrated by all tbe rules of modern
science, snd he who does not admit the
demonstration mrut be prepared to show
that two and two do not make four. Those
antique pentonHCOH who profesMed to have

of tha Via Sacra in the apace of a single

Around the throne and the great courtiers

beyond tbera 500 Persian guards; beyond
these again 1,000 arcbera. To Us a tent

arms and accoutrements, surrounding. In
successive circles, the most gorgeous Ori

and slaves, would perplex a mechanician
of tna Nineteenth century.
He will reply that the story hi false-

Happily the awning of the Colosseum
stands beyond dispute, and Alexander's
tent la a small matter compared with thai.
But we undertook to deal with the engin

tha theatre, having chanced on that class
of illustration. Pliny tolls how Metellus

which stirred his rival, C. Curio, to frantic

came, yesterday, aud ha made things live
ly while he flt in the humor. The first
thing Parnell did after arriving bete was
to explode a bombshell in bis enemy's
ranks that was-a surprise with a capital

of tbe law, ha seised United Ireland, the

There Was Qnlte a "IMvarshin."
United Ireland goes to press Thursday
and is mailed to subscribers and newsdeal
ers the same evening, so that the attacks
on Parnell, which were sent broadcast
through Ireland and Great Britain, will
not reach their destination. The acting
editor objected to being ousted, and re
fused to acknowledge Parnell's authority,
and whs ordered out of the office. He re
fused to go anil was forcibly ejected after
a scuffle, in which he was assisted by the
employes, who armed themselves with
sticks and stools. A lively row followed.

Dahlia Wild with tfetlght.
Order was finally restored , and
the members of the staff promised
allegiance to Parnell. Dublin, which
is almost solid for Parnell, is wild
with deHght over this first evi
deuce of the leader's determination to
carry the war iuto Africa. Parnell Is the
heaviest stockholder in United Ireland
and one of Its directors, and acted by the
advice of able lawyers whom he consulted
before leftvlng Indon. Tbe legal ground
for Parnell's action is known only to the
lawyers,, but that his action is a staggering
blow to the llealyites there can he no doubt.

Developing Karprislng Qualities.
LOKDON, Dec. 10. Parnell made his en
try Into Dublin yesterday like the con
queror of a disaffected province. His forci
ble seizure of United Ireland was as bold
a stroke as his tearing up tbe resolutions
for bis deposition st Saturday's National
ist meeting, and it has produced a remark
able impression. Parnell is developing
qualities that few knew him to possess.
One of the leading anti-Parnellites said to
a correspondent: "Until the scandal I
always followed Parnell, and had a good
deal of admiration for him on account of
his persistency and shrewdness; yet I
never snppoeed that he was a man of such
force as be has lately btvn proving himself
to he. Why, this man Is made of the staff

He would sacrifice a whole race to bis per

had tbe strength to do so.""

IxivnoN, Dec. II. Present appearances
all indicate that Parnell will sweep the
country in bis first apjieat. Whether there
will be a reaction on second thought or
not it is too early to predict with certain
ty. The Pall Mall Gagette said yesterday,
referring to Parnell's speech at the rail
way station Tuesday night: "No man ever
went faster to tbe devil with God so much

City Jtewe. j
Wasiiikotoji City, Dec. It Tbe sta
tistical returns of the department of agri
culture for December give tha average
farm prices for agricultural products by
counties, whish are consolidated in this
office to obtain accurate averages for tbe
several states. State agents obtain simi
lar estimates, revise and consolidate, and
forward state averages. The department
estimates, as published, are made from
these duplicate and Independent sources of
Information, which are In remarkable
agreement, and may be relied npou as tba
true measure of value of crops in tba
hands of the farmers. The present corn
crop is worth mora than tbe last, and
farmers will receive mora for it. Unfor
tunately districts of failure da not realize
their portion of tba advance ia average
The taw of Veasaad Controls.
The average price, by present returns, ia
50.1 cents per bushel, against 2a3 cents for
the crop of 1, an increase of 77 per cent.
It is the highest December price of tbe de
cade, except that of 1W1, tha only year in
which tbe final average ot condition waa
worse than that of the present season. Tbe
average price tbeo rose to 63.6 cents, and
that of the following year was 48 4. with a
better crop than tbe present. Tbe next
highest average Is 44.4 ia 187. following
three years ot Urge crops and cheap corn.
The prices therefore depend upon tha
quantity grown in the year, plus tbe reserve
from preceding years. The present aver
age shows that small crops are a sure cure
tot low prices, and that tbe law ot demand
is still tbe main factor in making prices
and profits. Tbe prices in tho seven corn
surplus states are: Ohio, 51 cent; Indi
ana, 47; Illinots. 48; Iowa, 41; Missouri, 44;
Kansas, 61; Nebraska. 4.
Estimates of Wheat Values.
Tbe average farm value of tbe wheat
crop, as estimated, is 84 cents per bushel,
against 08 a for l&, an increase of -U per
cent, on tbe price of last year. The value
of wheat is affected by the harvests ot
other countries, as corn is not percepti
bly, and therefore prices are not entirely
governed by the size of the homegrown
crop. For example, the crop of lNB,t bough
smaller than the present one, brought but
77 cents in December, while the crop of
13S3, aggregating over J0,0U0,0iW bushels,
the second largest eer grown, sold at SJ
cents at tbe same date.
Oat Prices Affected hy Cora. -
The price of oats has responded sharply
to the pressure of a small crop and in
creased demand because ot a short 'corn
crop. The average is 42.3 cents, against 2?
cents last year. It is the highest reported
aince ltfel. An examination ot records
shows that abundance or scarcity of corn
materially affects tbe value of this crop,
the two grains being largely iuteixh-,nge-able
in use. Rye, like oats, at 62 M cents.
Is higher than since 181, and tbe same is
true of barley at eta. Buckwheat at 57.7
marks an advance over last year, but is
lower than in ISA
A Big Boom la Potatoes.
Tha danciency in tbe potato crop has
caused an advance in values in all sections
ot tbe country. The average is 77.7 rents,
an increase ot more than tj per cent.. over
the prices of the past two years. There
turns show slightly higher price for to
bacco than bas prevailed since 17. Tbe
average U reported at 7.7 cents per pound.
Hay, alone, ot all tana products, records a
decline from last year. Tbe present price
Is C7.74 per ton, and the slight falling off
Is due to tbe Increased product.
A NEW MARINE SUBSIDY BILL.
Oae Measure Coo it rue ted of the Two Now
WashinctoV CITV, Dec 11. A eub
mmittee of the bouse committee on mer
sbant marine and fisheries baa drafted a

after consultation with tbe secretary of tbe
