The nomination of Giover Cleveland
by the Chicago convention exhibits the
most heroic politics of Amerion history
Never before in all our political conflicts
has a man been seriously considered as a
presidential candidate against the united
protest of his own state. Not only did
New York instruct for another candidate,
b'M her delegation and her political ma
chinery as positively hostile to Cleve
land, and the nomination was made on
the first ballot by more than a two-thirds
vote in tbe face of a formal protest,
signed by every member of the New York
delegation declaring that with him aa the
candidate party euccets would be gravely
endangered in their state.
.The exceptionally heroio , feature of
- "Cleveland's nomination is in the fact that
it has been dictated by tbe democratic
masses north, south, east and west
with little aid from the politicians ard
solely in the interest of honest govern -ment.

Pmrla During the Siege.
Writing from Paris under date of Sept.
19, the year of the siege, Henry Ijsbouchere
says: "I don't know whether my letter of
yesterday went off or not. As my messen
ger to the postofflce could get no authentic
intelligence about what was passing, I
went there myself. Everybody was in mil
itary uniform, everybody was shrugging
his shoulders, and everybody was in the
condition of a London policeman were he
to see himself marched off to the station
by a street sweeper. That the Prussians
should have taken the emperor prisoner
and have vanquished the French armies
had of course astonished these worthy
bureaucrats, but that they should have
ventured to interfere with postmen had
perfectly dumfounded them.
" 'Put your letter in that box,' said a
venerable employee on a high stool. 'Will
it ever be taken out?' I asked. 'Qui Bait?'
he replied. 'Shall you send off a train to
morrow morning?' I asked. There was a
chorus of 'Qui sait?' and the heads disap
peared still further with the respective
shoulders to which they belonged. 'What
do you think of a man on horseback?' I
suggested. An indignant 'Impossible' was
the answer. 'Why not?' I asked. The
look of contempt with which the clerks
gazed on me was expressive. It meant,
'Do you really imagine that a functionary
a postman is going to forward your let
ters in an irregular manner?'
"At this moment a sort of young French
Jefferson Brick came in. Evidently he
was a Republican recentlyset in authority.
To him I turned. 'Citizen, I want my let
ter to go to London. It is a press letter.
These bureaucrats say that they dare not
send it by a horse express. I appeal to you,
as I am sure you are a man of expedients.'
'These people,' he replied, scowling at the
clerks, 'are demoralized. They are the an
cient valets of a corrupt court. Give me
your letter. If possible it shall go, foi de
"I handed my letter to Jefferson, but
whether it is on its way to England or still
in his patriot ic hands I do not know. As I
passed out through the courtyard I saw
postmen seated on the boxes of carts, with
no horses before them. It was their hour
to carry out the letters, and thus mechan
ically they fulfilled their duty."
The Dog'a Efforts Were in Vain.
During the civil war I enlisted in the
th New Jersey. With our regiment wai.
a man named Harding, whom we had
picked up on the march. He was a good
n at u red fellow, a fine shot and was soon
recognized as a comrade by the men. He
was accompanied by an immense dog of
Danish breed, and the two were insepara
ble. While the men would bo playing
cards around the fire Bran would sit look
ing on with his great, wise face.
During the battle of Shiloh Harding was
severely wounded and left behind by the
troops. His dog had become separated
from him in the rush of the men and he
had spent a fearful night on the ground,
suffering from cold and thirst. In the
morning we noticed the dog running
around and whining pitifully, he having
noticed the absence of his master. At last
he ran off. After searching some three
hours among the dead and wounded he
found his master in the corner of a broken
down fence. He was out of his head and
was talking brokenly of home and friends.
Then ho changed his cry to "Water,
water!" and as wo stooped over him we
could hear him saying, "Water."
The dog heard it, too, and going to a
dead soldier near by he literally tore the
coat off his back looking for t he man's can
teen. He had none. The next one had,
and tearing open the pocket he got it and
ran back to his master. Placing it in his
hand lie sat down beside him as though
We gave him a drink and then carried
him to camp in our arms. He lost con
sciousness on the way and died soon after.

A Dlaobliging Chaperon.
There are two young people who feel
mutually indignant at the treatment ac
corded them by the young lady's chaperon
a few days ago. The young man went on
the evening in question to call on the
young lady. For awhile the Chaperon did
not bother them, but about ( o'clock, when
the chairs of the Voting people had mean
dered from points on opposite, sides of the
room to a point about eijuailj distant from
each near the center of the room, the
greater distance having been traversed by
the young man in a ratio of four :o one. the
chaperon came in. The chairs retreated,
but the chaperon remained in the room.
She said she was looking for her Bible.
The young people sent longing glances
across the room, but the chaperon kept
looking for her Bible. At last she found
it and went out, and the young couple
were hanpy for one minute.
Then chaperon came back. Daggei
glances met her, but with an angelic smile
she placed an armchair in front of the door
and soon fell asleep. She snored hard, and
the young people wert'happy for a time.
But when 12 o'clock came the young man
wanted to go heme, but could not get out
without waking the chaperon. This he
was afraid to do. Matters became des
perate. While the young lady held open
the window he vaulted to the street, with
out hat or overcoat. The girl not being
able to get into the corridor to get them
for him be went home without them and
sent a messenger after them the next
morning. St. Louis Republic.
How the Armada Fought.
The Spanish officers behaved with the
desperate heroism which became the coun
trymen of Cortez and Santa Cruz, and
never did Spanish soldier or seaman dis
tinguish himself more than on this tremen
dous day. There was no flinching, though
the blood was seen streaming out of the
scuppers. Priests went up and down un
der the hottest lire, crucifix in hand, con
fessing and absolving the dying.
But the engagement from the first pre
served the same character which had been
seen in those which had preceded it. The
Spaniards' courage was useless to them.
Their ships could not turn or sail, their
gnns were crushed by the superior strength
of the English artillery, they were out
matched in practical skill and close as the
ships were to one another they could not
once succeeu in fixing a grappling iron in
an English rigging, Thus, while their
own losses were terrible, they could inflict
but little in return. They had endured
for five hours to le torn to pieces by can
non shot and that was all.- Spanish

Raying; and Selling Books.
A funny story is told in a Portland book
store, though it is a question which party
to the transaction the laugh is on. As the
Story goes, a young lady came in the other
day and asked for a book entitled "Twice
Blessed." The clerk, a very bright young
man, hunted his catalogue in vain, and not
finding what she wanted, wrapped up "The
Quality of Mercy" for her. So far as they
have heard, the customer did not k&owthe
