Ex Sr-BiKKR G&lusia A. Grow, who
has scarcely allowed the word politics to
be mentioned in his presence since bis
failure to be elected United States sena
tor in 1831, has shied bis bat into the
political ring once more.
RxFOBTi declare that Mr. Blaine will
sot be so active in the Maine state cam
paign this year as he was four years ago,
but be will make several speeches in Au
gust and the early part of September.and
just before election day. Circumstances
however, may alter present intentions.
Aktbodt but Gest for renomination
seems to be the sentiment of the repub
lican masses all over the district, al
though the bosses still adhere to, and de
clare that there is no one qualified to lead
the forlorn hope but the vanquished con
gressman. In this view the bosses may
entertain the correct view, but ueverthe
less the prevailing idea of the party is
to look elsewhere. The Moline Dispatch
of last evening brought out Dr. C.
Truesdale's name, and while the Union
lends feeble endorsement to the sugges
tion, it tops off its endorsement with the
plea more strongly put that Gest above
all should be the man. Indeed, there
does not appear to be any doubt about
Mr. Gest bein? the man, and all talk of
anyone else is idle.
Congressman Julius Caesar Bur
bows, of Micbiga n, 1b apt to be chosen
permanent chairman of the republican
national convention. A distinguished
republican leader who visited the capital
yesterday said it would never do, in view
of the controversy between tbe Harrison
and anti-Harrison Tactions, to select a
man to preside over the convention who
is conspicuously identified with tbe inter
ests of any candidate. Mr. Burrows is
one of the best analifled men in the nartv
for the place. He has the voice, tbe psr
Hamentary skill, and the other qualifies
tions necessary for a successful presiding
officer of a national convention. JX'
Benator Ingalla has been spoken of, but
bis well known hostility to the president
will probably interfere with Jus . pros
pects. He is an able parliamentarian
and a model presiding officer, bat the ad
ministration men, who are apt to oe in
the majority will oppose him.

The colored people's United States
Mutual Relief and Protective union has
addressed the following notice to all
members of their race in Illinois:
We, the undersigned voters of tbe state
of Illinois do sincerely believe it to be
our duty to defeat Henry L. Hertz, can
didate for state treasurer on the republl
can ticket, to be elected neit .November.
We have just ground for complaint
against Mr. bertz, and therefore we
pledge ourselves to use every bonorable
means to defeat him. First fault we have
to Henry L. Hertz, be is a colored man's
enemv: second fault, we find of Henry
L. Hertz, be is not a republican in prin
ciples, be is standing behind the republi
can noli for the purpose of
holdins a public office; third
fault, we have against Henry L
Hertz is that when he was coroner of
Cook county, he talked and worked very
herd against Ihe colored people to stop
them from working with the white peo
ple, and by his talk and bis work as cor
oner a number of col ore a men were ais
charged from where they were working
fourth fault we have of Henry L. Hertz,
be hss no feeling for a poor working
colored man, who lives by bis every day
toils. We denounce Henry L. Hertz for
the damage be has done to the colored
citizens of Illinois, by robbing us of work
and we appeal to all intelligent and pa
triotic Afro-American Deo pie of Illinois
to unite with us in this work which is a
credit to our race; and in the largest
sense of the terms we believe we can aid
in bringing great good to our generation.
We appeal particularly to the Afro-
American raters who do their own think'
ioe and have become convinced that Afro-
American citizens can be only saved from
ruin through reforms that are fundamen
tal and far reaching. When we look at
our number and remember wbat we do
through our political toiling yet we col
ored men are hardly more than school
boys except a few days before election.
We desire to right the wrongs done us,
and if the democrats will kindly keep
their bands aff of Henry L. Hertz, we col
ored citizens will defeat him by electing
Rufua N. Ramsey to the state treasurer 1
office of Illinois.
A HUMAN "THINK TANK.
A N'rw York Student Who Pata STJa
- Knowledge Into Dollars.
In c oe of the handsome flats in a fash
koab e street in the city lives a gentle
man vho is rolling up a fortune by knowl
edge. He is not a writer or a lecturer, he
holds io college professorship and does not
belong to any learned body. He simply
knows it all, or as nearly all as mortal
man niay, and he sells his knowledge for a
He cirns a very extensive library, to be
gin wi h. Then, too, he is a living- index
to bis own books. If you require informa
tion o l matters of history, science, the
ology, biography, art or anything else, you
have b it to apply to him and pay him his
cnargei to be enlightened, xou may
make 3 our notes out of his library, or with
the list of authorities obtained from him
consult tbe public collections. In one way
and another there is probably nothing in
the way of published information that you
cannot ?et track of through him, even if
he does not know all about it. He con
ducts h s consultations with the fixed sys
tem of f . lawyer or a physician and always
has a fi ll list. There are times, indeed,
when hi . is so fully engaged that appoint
ments have to be made with him well in
In theological matters he is especially
strong. The list of his clients is said to in
clude tl e most eminent divines of the
country. Thousands of sermons and re
ligious discussions annually owe their logic
and thei - information to him. In the re
vision of theological works he is found an
invaluatle reference. In theological his
tory he i 1 probably-more learned than any
man livi lg. When the enormous mass of
this sort of literature that is in existence
is considered, the fact that he can master it
as he hat done is remarkable. Hut he car
ries the strae authoritative erudition into
other branches of letters.
His strong point is his memory. It fixes
everythirg in a literary way that is
brought lef ore it. He has some system of
analogizing dates that renders it possible
for him to give the day, month, year and
often even the hour of an occurrence on
demand, no that to trace it up and refer to
the published record of details is compara
tively easy for him. Outside of his memory
he appears to possess no literary gifts or
Commencing modestly enough, his
charges are now so high that they , would
seem exor litant to any one not conversant
with tbe alue of special information to
persons of superficial education, or to those
even of well grounded and extensive, but
not symmetrically systematized, study.
Many of his clients know a great deal more
than he do in their way, and are men of
much grea 'r ability. But they have not
arranged their information so skillfully,
and cannot recall it when they need it. So
they pay hi m to nudge their memories, and
are glad to have him to help them as he
does. New York Cor. Pittsburg Bulletin.
Who Invented the Steam Engine?
The Marquis of Worcester, while im
prisoned in the Tower of London in lftjtf,
invented and constructed a perfect steam
engine, and had it publicly exhibited the
same year at, Vauxhall in successful opera
tion, Thirt y-four years later, in 1600, Den
nis Papm ailded the piston to the marquis'
discovery. In 1698 Captain Savary devised
and built a steam enginedifTerent in many
details from those made by Worcester and
Papm; and 'n 1705 Newcomb, Cawley and
Savary constructed their celebrated at
mospheric engine, which was complete in

Fulton, who lived and worked in the
early part of the present century, is given
the credit of being tbe man who demon
strated that steam could be applied to
navigation; this, too, in face of the well

Barcelona in 1543. Why does history make

A Story Abont Shelley the Poet.

tea cakes was handed him, but these he

cakes, heaped up in scandalous profusion,
blushing with currants, shocked him. He
watched Southey, who was hungry and
liked tea cake, clearing his plate with evi

Why, Southey, I am ashamed of you!
It is awful to see such a man as you greedi

Mrs. boutney listened in angry amaze

Mr. Shelley immediately took up a cake,
and finding it pood, began to eat as greedi

Mrs. Southey was pacified, and promised
the receipt to the poet, who declared that

having 30 on her limbs, and being unable to

and bought a bottle, half of which cured en
tirely. Two years after, another child was
afflicted as badly. I used the other half
bottle ot Hood's Sarsaparilla with like re
sults. About four years after, the child first
afflicted was again tormented like Job, and I
bought a bottle (on Sunday at that) and
again a cure. I gave some of the medicine to
a poor woman and two children; they were
helped as were mine. Through a testimo

from all the country, asking if it was a bon
