A Loss to Journalism.
Mr. 11. G. Wright, the junior pro
prietor and editor of the Augusta
Chronicle a-nd Constittionalist, died
on 8uniday evening at the residence of
ex-Governor Herschel V. Johnson, in
JeOferson county, after a few weeks'
Illness, ill the thirtieth year of his age.
Mr. Wright became connected with
the paper in 1867, and in 1873, after
the death of his father, General A. R.
Wright, assunmed charge of the editori
al department. We have been a daily
reaider of that paper for years and
have ever admired the soundness of
its views and the bright and attractive
wily in which they were uniformly
presented. Mr. Wright was an honor
to Southern Journalism, and his death
at a time when he was just latuling
and was giving promise of a bright
and useful career, is a serious loss, not
only to his own State, but to the press
everywhere. As the Chronicle and
Constitutionalist, frgmu its geographi
cal position, is most intimately con
nected with South Carolina journal.

Four, Five and Six Sundays in
Everybody is aware that February,
oir shortest month, is distinguished
this year by having five Sundays. This
has happened but twice before during
the present century, the years 182-1
and 1852 having like the presolt five
Sundays in the shortest month. This
will not occur again till 1920, a period
of forty years. As leap year occurs
once in every four years, and as there
are seven days in the week, every
variety of combination of days ini the
week wihth days of the monlth must
take phlce in a period of twenty-eight
years, which is the multiplhe of four
and seven. And tis wold be per
petual were it not that three years ill
every four centur'ies which ini regular'
couirse wvould be leap-years, pass for
common years, thle additional day not
being added, February having as
usuial but twenty-eight days. The
years selected for thlese exceptions in
thle leap year reckoning are the last of
the years of the centuries which, being
divided by 400, give a remainder. For
example, 1700. 1800 and 1900 are niot
ileap years, while the additional day is
e added to all the centutrial years divisi
ble perfectly by 400, sutch as 1600,
2000, 2400, etc., which are Leap-years.
As the year 1900 will be a common
year, thlose wvho live past the expira
tion of the 19th inato the beginning of
the 20th century will experienice the
rare occullrrence of an interval ofteight
years, instead of the usual one0 of four
between two Leap-years.
As Februar'y is the shortest month
It seems paradoxical to say that some
persons miay witness six Siudays In
February, yet it is very possible, and
by no means inprobable.. It is well
* ~ known that when a persont travels
round thle wvorld going eastward, he
mneets the sun1 earlier every day and at
the end of the journey has had one
more sunrise than those wvho remiained1
at home. In othler words though the
numrber' of hours is the same, 110 has
had one day more than the others.
Suppose now in sailing across the
Pacific to America he comes to port on
anly Sunday inl February according to
the ship's reckoning, wve will say the
15th for example. On his journal 1s
entered Sunday, Februa~ry 15th. On
going out next day lie expects to find
it Monday, when lie discovers every
body in Suniday Costume, and on In

wvhich is correct by land Reckoning.

thle Executive Manssik e'te Iadlie of the
A Correspoident of the Philadelphia
Ti'imes thtus pleasaitly gossips about
the social liib at the Iepublican Court
in Washiligton. Hie says:
One of the most impressive and
gorgeous receptions which the writer
ever attended was given by the Presi
dent and Mirs. Lincoln toward the last
of his importanit term. Tle White
House looked old, worn and dingy,
for this preceded the golden splendor
of the Grant regime, but the brilliancy
and magnificence was made up by the
scarlet uniforms of the Marine Band
with the gilt buttons and shoulder
straps of the brave defenders of the
Union, who clustered about the Capi
tal in those historic da's. The same
struggling tide of humanity Inundated
the doors of the Executive Mansion,
but at every turi a soldier was sta
tioned to keep the crowd within the
limit of Mrs. Lincoln's law. Bayonets
glittering over the daintily dressed
heads and bare shoulders of the beauti
filly dressed ladies who declared that
"miob law" was now inaugurated and
"they should never visit the White
hlouse again, until a change." But. if
the guests felt insulted at tie presence
of the bayonets what was their aston
ishment upon going into the "pres
enice" to fhid a gentiine crown oin Mr's.
Lincoln's head. It was made of gi t,
but looked pitcisely like those whiIch
are found on the heads of those dis
tinguished women about whom we
read in Agnes Strickland's "Lives of
the Queens of England." Tle stones
or gems were wanting, but the tinsel
and gilt was all there. There was
only time allowed to note that dear
old Abraham looked down at the little
"bobbing" woman at his side, as lie
might at a frolicsome kitten, then a
cold steel bayonet pressed the writer's
shoulder, while the military gruff
voice addod : "Pass on I pass on i"
Afterward it was ascertained that the
"crown" was a harmless hair-dress
invented bv a Philadelphia milliner,
and that Air. Lincoln ridiculed it so
severely that its debut and withdrawal
all took place the same night.
It was Mrs. Lincoln who arranged
that a division of society should be
made after the guests have entered the
White House. She had a door set.
apart for the Judges of the Supreme
Court, Senators, army and navy and
foreigni Ministers. Members of Con
gress were herded with the common
people, and actually iorced through
the same doot. When Mr's. Julia
Grant succeeded to the sceptre she
realized that any distinction of this
kind would im-rkc any administration
uipopular; so she decided that all per
sons who entered the front door of
the Mansion were entitled to the same
social privilege, and all doors should
be alike to the guests. But to get,
over the difficulty and please rova tv
as well as democracy, Mrs. Grant dis
covered a side door, a sort of sneak
entrance, where those who wished to
avoid the crowd could pass in, take
up their positions in the rear of the
"throne," and glare upon the strug
gling crowd of humamty as it passed
by in single file.
