A to Judge Jackson.
Whs did the president nominate Judge
Jackson, a democrat, to succeed Justice
Lamar on tbe supreme bench T is a ques
tion which has been widely discussed
during the last few dajs. Divers and
diverse views bare been expressed, tbe
latest by the Philadelphia Times, which
answers the question in this way:
"Well, Harrison is human, and he does
things for the same rensons which ani
3kate ther men.
"Harrison, being eminently human, is
good hater; and, if he cherishes one re
sentment above another, it is the one of
which Judge Gresham is the central fig
Sire. "Had be nominated a republican for
supreme judge, be would likely have
failed of confirmation and Cleveland
would have inherited the power of ap
pointment. In that event, Cleveland
might appoint Gresham, and Harrison
would prefer a solid democratic su
preme court to all republicans with
'Judge Jackson will pretty certainly be
confirmed, and he is probably tbe nly
nan thought of who is reasonably safe in
the senate. Harrison wants the vacancy
filled; he doesn't want Gresham and be
has done his level best to tramp the
Of course, if we are going behind the
nomination in search of sinister metives,
this is probably as plaaeible as others
that have been assigned, and of such
Tarring nature, that all cannot be true;
and not knowing the true from the false.
the Courier-Journal prefers not to bother
itself with any ef them.
Instead af trying to answer the ques
tion as to the president's motive in thic
case we mignt ask enotner: Why is it
we are so qnick to suspect, and ready to
seek, a base foundation for every ap
parently worthy human actian?
On its face the nomination of Judze
Jaction is a good one, and does credit te
toe president. Kor one, the Courier
Journal 1b willing to see the judge go
upon the supreme bench without thrash
ing around for some explanation of his
appointment which would he a discredit
to the president.

Cooking clxsses for gentlemen! The final
blow to that hono -able and old fashioned
institution of mitrimony. Modern de
velopments are in league against wedlock.
Patent buttons ht ve been fashioned that
preclude the neces-iity of a needle. Depots
of repairs are established from which issue
skilled hand maid jns to go into the bach
elor's home and nduce the rents in hose
and the fractures in linen at minimum
cost. The trained nurse has monopolized
the most tender of wifely devotions. In
deed the wife is summarily dismissed from
the husband's sickroom if danger is im
minent. And the trainee nurse is a most engag
ing, low voioed, gi ntle institution in pic
turesque cap and apron. Her hands are
like velvet to the touch, but strong and
wondrous deft. She knows how to coax
and how to command without irritation
or fussiness. Oboe ience is delicious when
in accord with hr sovereign will. Her
dress never rustles. She never cries over a
a poor fellow when he is too ghastly sick to
endure it. She d iesn't get her precious
feelings injured when his head thumps so
he is obliged to call on his Maker with un
due unction aud familiarity. Apartment
houses and clubs gi.lore are luxuriously ap
pointed for the bachelor's comfort.
Gentle women and fresh young maidens

An Intern ptcd Oration.
An Amherst grc lua'te, a night or two
ago, in rt reniinisejut mood, related the fol
lowing stoi-y of school dn s to some friends.
"Good old Dr. B. had tbe somewhat dis
couraging task of training us to become
the country's futu -e orators. We always
called him 'Prexy Khetoriculs.' He was tin
eccentric old fellov, and had a habit of
cutting our weekly declamations short that
he might go home early in tbe afternoon.
We never could kno when one of us might
be cut off in the most eloquent part of some
stirring bit of oratni-y wit h the stereotyped
remark, 'Very well done; next!'
"Tom Cotting wai the most promising
member of the class for the oratorical lau
reateship. One afternoon when 'Prexy'
was in a greater hurry than ever to finish
declamations, Tom held us spellbound by a
masterly rendering of the speech of 'Spor
tacns to the Gladutors.' Just as he was
launching out his defiance of the Roman
tyrants, 'Prexy' cut, him off in the usual
"Tom, the next week, when his turn
came, mounted the latform, and, making
a most profound bov, carelessly remarked:
" 'As I was saying last week when I was
interrupted, after Simrtacus,' and then he
launched into the remainder of the speech.
'Prexy' was speeches, and that afternoon,
and for several aftervard, the boys were al
lowed to finish their pieces without inter
ruption." Boston G.obe.
How to Guess it Woman't Age.
A volume of mcmc irs has been published
giving the experient es of a French presi
dent of the assize. It bears curious testi
mony to the inaccuracy of women on the
subject of their own iges. As the writer's
information is from t ae calendar, he speaks
only of the criminal classes. The only in
stances in which he finds correct dates
given by women are when they are under
twenty-five or over oighty-five. At these
periods of life, he (ays, they are to be
At all other periods the sure controlling
tendency is to understate. The magistrate
has been able to give a rule for guidance.
He finds that female prisoners invariably
state their ages as twenty-nine, thirty-nine,
forty-nine or fifty-ninn, and from this re
markable circumstam e he deduces his rule.
If their ages are in the forties they boldly
set them down in t ie thirties, but con
science asserting itself, they keep as near
the truth as they can iind fix them at thirty-nine.
Whether mi le criminals do the
same the magistrate does not state. Loo

Catarrh in the Head
Catarrh is a Constitutional disease.
and requires a Constitutional Remedy
like Hood s barsapariila to cure it. Read :
" Three years ago, as a result of catarrh, I
entirely lost my hearing and was deaf for more
than a year. I tried various things to cure it,
and had several physicians attempt it, but no
improvement was apparent. I could distia.
