It is said that the late A. H.
Stephens, of Georgia, loaned mon
ey to 120 young men to enable
them to get an education. Most
of the mon3T was repaid.
The ground upon which Cin
cinnati stands was purchased by
J. C. Symes about ninety years
ago for 67 cents an acre. He has
not lived to take advantage of the
The Beaconsfield administration
paid off $90,800,000 of the national
debt of Great Britain. The Glad
stone administration has paid off
$102,500,000, and hopes this year
to pay off $40,000,000 more.
Old-fashioned flint lock shot
guns are still made at Birming

Bishop Riley, Episcopal bishop
of Mexico, has never received any
salary, and has given about 150,

years to the Christian work under
his care. He has exhausted a pri
Centennials in order are the
signing at Paris of definite articles
of Peace between England,France,
Spain and the United States, on
September 3, 17S3, and the evacu

celebrated on Monda7, November
The Boston Herald thinks that
the Democrats in the next congress
have three courses open to them:
They can, do nothing, and bring
disaster to the country; they can
do the wrong thing, and bring de
feat to themselves; or they can do
the right thing, and benefit the
country and themselves.
Superintendent "Warner, of the
Allegheny, Pa., workhouse says:
"Prison labor is not worth over
40 cents a day. When a skilled
workman can be had for $2 a day
I should prefer the latter. Men
who go to prison are usually those
who have cultivated all their life
& natural distaste for work.
The Chinese have some queer
medicines, as this, for instance,
known as the five poisens: Dried
snakes, pulverized, 1 oz.; wasps
and their nests, 4- oz.; centipedes,
3 oz.; scorpions, G oz., and toads,
10 oz. These choice ingredients
are ground into powder, mixed
up with honey and made into pills.
Nihilism in Russia is responsi
ble for a new element in politics
the explosive element an ele
ment that would strike down and
destroy all that stands in the
pathway of its unholy ambi
tion. Communism is but another
name for robbery. It would reap
where it had not sown. It would
enjoy the fruits of tho sweat and
toil of others without rendering a
In the old North Providence
graveyard there sro several neat
gravestones with tho names and
the dates of births of several aged
persons, but no date of death. The
Providence Journal thus explains
this curious circumstance: "It is
becoming quite customary now
among old folks to provide and
set up their gravestones in advance
in this way, instead of leaving the
duty of erecting a tombstone to
their administrators or heirs, and
it must be acknowledged that
there is no lack of reason for this
want of confidence in the affec
tion and regard of relatives."
The editor of the London
Sportsman, who recently visited
this country, seems to have ac
commodated himself to the ways
of the republic with remarkable
sweetness and content, as tho fol
lowing extract from an interview
with him on his return to London
sufficiently demenstrates: "Did
you make many speeches when
you were in America?" they asked
him. "Yes," was the reply. "I
was frequently called upon to re
spond." "And what did you say
for the most part?" "Thank you.
I don't mind if I do."
The San Francisco Post coun
ters on Johnny Bull's blushing
proboscis in the following neat
manner: "The London Times in
sists on speaking of the American
Dynamite part'. "We have here
tofore informed our London con
temporary that there is no such
thing as the American Dj'namite
party on this side of the Atlantic.
But if there were such a party,
would it be more than just retalia
tion for the English Confederate
Cruiser and Blockade Runner
party that existed in England dur
ing the American war of the re
bellion?" A young man at Glasgow, la.,
was taken in and done for the
other day by a new trick. He
laid a wager with a stranger that
the latter would not woo, win and
marry a young lady whom, with
his companion he had seen arrive
at the hotel where ho was living.
The latter introduced himself to
the damsel, she smiled upon his
suit, a minister was called in and
they were married within an hour.
The wager of no inconsiderable
amount was handed over to the
bridegroom, who left "with his
bride the following day. It was
afterwards discovered that the
couple had long been man and
wife, and that they had been trav
eling about playing the same trick
at various hotels.
The Boston Transcript is of the
opinion that the opponents of
revenue reduction will not be
able to deceive the people with a
juggle of words. They argue and
disclaim free trade, and character
ize as freetraders all who have the
tariff revised, though the' know
that the necessities of the govern
ment will prevent free trade from
becoming a practical question for
many years to come. Free trade
is one question and tariff reduc
tion quite another. The former is
not now favored by anybody, al
though it is firmly believed in
as the true principle of gov
ernment by a largo and in
creasing number of the most
enlightened citizens. But tariff
reduction is demanded by all who
believe that the government is
now collecting $100,000,000 more
than should or need be expended,
and that the taxes to be first
abated are those which weigh upon
the necessities of the people. Tax
reduction is a necessity, and tax
reduction means tariff reduction.
Not free trade, but freer trade and
A Connecticut liquor law be
gan with these werds: "Every
person who shall sell liquor to a
minor." This law was repealefl,
and a new one enacted beginning
with the words, "Every licensed
person who shall sell liquor to n
minor." The result is that bar
keepers can sell liquor with impu
nity, because they are not licensed,
while the proprietors of saloons
escape punishment by denying
that they were aware of such sales
by their employes to persons un
der age. It is suggested that the
word "licensed" was inserted in
the new law to make it inopera
At next year's presidential
election, it is considered probable
that there will be over 10,000,000
votes cast; which would be about
two-thirds of tho number of men
in the country.
