one, according t the general cu
torn. Mr. Cleveland was sworn in at his
inauguration in 18SS with his mother's
bible, a small morocco-bound copy, and
it is understood that he will use the same
ode in the approaching ceremony.
The death of Judge John Scholfleld de
prives Illinois state of one of its fore
most jurists. He had been a justice of
the suDreme court of the state for many
years, and President Cleveland once ten
dered him the chief justiceship of the
United States supreme court, an honor
which he declined and which was subse
quently conferred upon Melville W. Fuller.

Inclined to take kindly to the selection
of Judge Orosham for secretary of state,

illustrate his present feelings on the
Personally my position is similar to
that of a little German friend of mine
who had his place of business in the same
building with me in SprineOeld. It was
during tbo campaign of '63, when I was
more or less interested in tbe nomint
tion that the democratic convention
would make, so was my Garman friend
on the floor below me. As I came down
stairs my German friend shouted to me:
"Who's going to be nominated, gsn
eralt" I reolied: "It look like Hn
dricks '' ''Hendricks vs a goot mm
Hurrah for Henkricks A few hours
later I hd occasion to go down stair?,
acd my German fried questioned me fur
ther concerning the nomination. I re
plied; "It looks like Chaee would be
nominated." "An!" said he, "Chase vas
a bully man LTarrih f.ir Chase." Finally
word came that the conv- ntion had nom
inated Seymour and as I passed my Ger
man friend's ducr I informed him tba
8eynaour was nominated. ' Das is soot,''
said he. "Seymour vas tbe best m-.V
what they jjat. Hurrah for Seymour."
This ahtfoi ipref-sas my posit'on at tfce
' 'Congressman Eelrao, of Indian?,
whose democracy is of the rock-riblxrd
variety, is enthusiastic in hie expression
of the selection of Judge Gresham for
secretary of state. He eaye:
The selection meets with my hearty ap
proval. Judge Gresham is a man of great
ability and purity, acd his selection is a
most sagacious one. His ability and his
honesty and the fact that he is indepen
dent of certain great influences has at
tached many of the people to him, and
he has a large following of men who.
white not yet outside of the republican
party, are in sympathy with lower tax
ation, greater economy in the public cx
penditures and all the great issues ad
vocated by the democratic party. In
political prosecutions that came up be
fore bitn soon after the war be manifeited
uch fairness and impartiality as to win
as many friends among democrats as
among republicans. When it was shown
to him that a jury in a political case had
been packed with republicans he did not
wait to hear a word from the district at
torney, but at once dischsrged the whole
venire. His selection shows a disposi
tion on the part of Mr. Cleveland to
gather around him a cabinet of the very
best men he can find, with a view to tl e
greatest efficiency of administration and
for the highest good of the people, acd
without too close regard for political
records, and I think he is right. On a
smaller scale it is like the nomination of
Oreeley in 1872 the most sagacious
nomination the party ever made, for it
seeded just such a nomination as that to
l'rt it out of its old rata.
Some press opinions are gives :
Danville Press: President Harrison
appoints a democrat to the supreme bench
and Preside tt Cleveland appoints a re
publican to a seat in his cabinet. In this
year of our Lord it does seem as if there
was no politics in politics.
St. Lou;s Republic: Judge Gresham is
an much better than the republican part,
that he is to all intents a democrat and
a long ways better democrat than some
of those who pass for democrats in New
Xngland and New York.
8t Louis Post-Dispatch: The Gresh
am appointment is not in recognition of
Illinois democrats, but it is a concession
to tbe democratic sentiment of all sec
tions, which is not confined to be the
Xbetaattra Carta in a Day.

THE CHILDHOOD OF THE HEART
Oh, thu rosy days of childhood
How blissfully they sped
When not a charm had vanished
. ';And not a wonder fled!
The ye it was f nil of promise then:
The tongue was full of praise;
But 1 1 sink the cup is sweeter now
Than in the childish days.
Oh, the laughing world of childhood.
Of ignorance and ease!
The lightest touch could quicken.
And t he least pleasure please;
Vet the upward paths are dearer.
With all the thorns they bear,
Than-a garden of a hundred flower
When ignorance is there!
Oh, the beating heart of childhood
That little heart of snow
That dc ubt has never entered
Nor a rrow has brought lowl
Trust it e, not all the rapture
Its ea er life can span
Can she dow forth the perfect love
That 'rarms the breast of man.

An Old Woman's Courage.
Mrs. C. C. Merrill, a New Woodstock
lndy of eighty y 'ars, was one day weeding in
her little garde 1 when she heard a commo
tion down the r md. Looking up she saw a
pair of runaway horses coming toward her.
She recognized the tfatn as liclonging to
her son, for clinging to the seat of the
wagon was ber little golden halivd grand
daughter. The old lady was not ;.firtid of
horses. She pi :ki'd up a Ion pole ond
calmly walked down the road to meet the
frightened anin :tls. She slowly waved the
pole Iv.ck and forth, from one' side of the
road to the other. On came the horses at
full speed. First they glanced knowingly
on one side, thi n on the other for a chance
to dash past the moving pole. Then they
stopped the ol 1 lady had connuered.

Lord Salisbury and Lord Mayor's I)a3'fl
Lord Salisbury, as prime minister of Eng
land, has seen s ven consecutive lord may
or's days, and m doing so has beaten the
record of more than sixty years. Since
Lord Liverpool died no prime minister has
celebrated so many successive lHhs of No
vemlier at the Guildhall. It is true Lord
Salisbury's teni.re of office has not been
continuous. The six months' administra
tion of Mr. Glalstone in 1S86 interposed,
but it did not lust till lord mayor's day of
the year in which he came into oflice.
Spruce Gum Quotations.
Lump spruce um as it comes from the
trees is worth ali the way from fifteen cents
to one dollar a ;iound, a very fair article
selling at forty cents a pound wholesale.
Ten cents a pound is the common retail
price for good gum. Lots of "patent"
spruce gum, as ii is called, is made in Ban
gor and more in Portland. It is a pretty
good thing to chew if you must chew, and
have nothing better to do. It is packed in
boxes, 100 lumps in a box, and retails at a
cent a lump. Lt wiston Journal.
Japan e In the North.
The late Japan se consul, Sigiunirn, with
some leading citizens, visited a great Indian
potlach, or feast, in Alaska. So soon as he
landed from tbe ship the Indians were
heard to remark, "He is one of us." The
imitative faculty among these Indians is
clearly Mongolian, and their skill in carv
ing leads to the s- nne conclusion. St. Paul
