TaE RAnleALS NOW wish they had

THE UNITED STATES Senate has
passed a bill repealing the bank
rupt law, to take effect in Septem
ber. If the House concurs in the
amendments and the bill becomes
a law, the sound of the bankrupt
mill will soon cease.

Rainey will be unseated, and a now
election ordered in their districts.
Messrs. Tillman and Richardson
will doubtless be chosen to succeed
them. The presence of Smalls in
Congress, day after day, after hav

Tux ZAcu CIHANDLERS, Of the Re,
publican party, are in a deplorable
state of anguish in anticipation that
the Democrats will control both
houses of Congress in 1880, and
will count in their candidate for
president, regardless of the will of
the people. The Electoral Com
mission is a precedent for all kinds
? . of frauds. It is this fear that
impels the Radicals to make such
earnest efforts to control the next
TSE NATIONAL PARTY has made
immense strides in the past year.
It cast over fifty thousand votes in
Pennsylvania last fall, and ten
thousand in Maine this spring,
besides carrying a number of cities
and counties in other States. Its
leaders claim the balance of power
in nine States. The objective point
of the party at present is to hold
the balance of power in those Legis
latures that are to elect United
States Senators. The Nationals are
a fusion of the Greenback men and
A GREAT MANY years ago, when
Washington was a much greater
man than he now appears to be
considered, a colossal monument in
his honor began to be built. Asso
A -ciations were formed in every State,
and subscriptions from all sides
poured in. Even foreign nations
contributed tablets and ornameontal
stones to the work. The design
was a pantheon, a hundred feet
high, topped by a shaft rising full
six hundred feet higher. It was to
be a big thing. two hundred feof;
nearer Heaven than any structure
over previously erected, except the
tower of Babel. The engineers in
charge laid a foundation only eight
feet deep, on clay and sand. When
S the monument was a hundred and
~' eighty fet high the foundation sank,
deflboting the shaft an inch or so
from the perpendicular. Engineer,.
Ing, stupidity and a cessation of
public spirit manifested in the way
of subscriptions, brought the work
to an Impotent conclusion. There it
*has rested for years, a disgrace to
the country. Congress has just
waked up to the situation and pro..
poses to complete the work, on a

frauds failed to pass because thirty
Democrats wore absent, and the'
Republicans, by refusing to vote,
defeated a quorum. A reasonable
attondance of the dominant party
would ensure a quorum, without
a Radical vote. The Democratic
House, as a whole, is not covering
itself with glory. The people
should look after their servants.
Congressmen are paid five thousand
dollars a year to attend to their
business, not to go jnnkoting around,
or return home and lay the wires for
ro-election. If the present mem
bers are not willing to do the work
for the money and the honor, others
can be found who will.

HOSPITABLE BEYoND HER MEANS.
A clergyman traveling in the
mountains of West Virginia put up
for the night at the house of a pious
lady who never refu.ed to entertain
strangers, less haply an angel might
be turned from her door unawares.
Shortly after his arlival supper was
announced, and tie old lady
after a blessing had been in
voked, began to rattle the cups
and saucers preparatory to the
matronly ceremony of pouring out
and handing around the hot coffee.
1 t was customary to make the in
quiry, and therefore the good dame,
with a gracious smile, inquired of
her guest :
"Do you take sugar in your'n ?"
"If you please," replied the hun
gry and thirsty evangelist, "and I'll
be obliged to you if you will make
it to'erably sweet."
The old lady began to twist in
her chain, adjust her spectacles, and
.look searchingly around the table.
She dipped the spoon desperately
into the blue china sugar bowl, but
it rattled ominously against the
sides of the emp)ty vessel. At last
the summoned courage to tell the
truth. With admirable pluck and
candor, she opened her mouth and
spake, and the words that reached
thle ear of her guest were these:

CURING U'rs.-Accidental cuts
from knives, cutting tools scythes,
etc., are more likely to occur on the
face and limbs than on the body.
All that is requisite in general is to
bring the p)arts together as accurate
Jy as possible, and to bind them up
this usually done by adhesive
plaster, wvhen the cut ceases to bleed.
Nothing i3 so) go)od for th)is purpose
as paper previously washed over on
cne side with a thick gum water,
and then (dried ; when 1used it isI
only to be wvetted with the tongue.
WVhen the cut bleeds but little it is
well to soak the part in wvarm water
for a fewv minutes, or keep a wet '
cloth on it. This removes inflam
nation and pain and also a tendency j
to fainting, wvhich a cut gives some *i
persons. If the bleeding be too a
copious dab the part with a rag
wetted with creosote.
At Sandusky, Oh$io, in a recent
case, a juryman wvho couldn't read or
vrite, got a friend to prepare him a
lot of "yes" and "no" ballots ; put,
ting one ret in one vest pocket andt
the other in another, so that|ho;could
tell which way he was voting. But
he got so absorbed in the testimony
that wvhen he camno to vote "yes," he
forgot which pocket held the right
ballots and kept on voiig "no"
against the solid affirmative of his
associates, until one of them found
out how the matter stood, and the
vote was made unanimnouse.
