It is to 1k hoped the ball in this city will not have tho same result It is a great misnome. to call such an affair a charity lall.

A. M. Rrown, a Pittsburg lawyer, to run for United Statcn Senator against Cameron. Whether Maj. Rrown is a better man than ?.lr. Cameron or tsot, wo aro unable to say, but we ven turo to predict that his prestno on tho track will seanvly cause tho slightest jar when the Cameron car comes along. Mu. A. K.

A BETTER SIDE TO LOOK ON. SutTtring hmuaiiity contaiuej twoclat-eei j of beings which present a very decided contract. One clas, though their ills are never do slight, are forever complaining; the other, though Buttering never w se verely, are always cheerful and hopeful A cimilar chL-iiieation may lo mado of men in their buaine-s relations. Oiiv3 elaes uevi r sets anything good ahead and is always magnifying every unfavorable indication, and the other makes tho best of everything. Tho doc tors tell us that phyfcieal mal adies are aggravated by despondency and the same Is equally true of business maladies. While thro has lxen forborne tim past a condition of things not altogether encouraging to men who de pend uim daily wages for their living, there has leen at least hhuo compensa tion m tho reduced prices of the neces saries of life. Tho American Grocer hi 8 recently published a table prepared from j its own tiles showing tho average prices for tho past fourteen years of sugar, coiTee, tea, rice, pork, lard, butter, cheese, wheat. Hour. com and canned goods. Tho price of sugar shows a gra dual decline. In 1870 crushed sugar averaged lP.j cents, and granulated 13 cents per pound. At tho beginning of tho present year the former was quoted at CJ and tho latter at 5. Kio colTco, which cost 12 cents gold in 1870, now costs less than 10 cents. Good medium Japan tea averag-d from 5j to 51) cents during 1870; at present it is worth from VJ to 20. Carolina rice, which was quoted then from G. to 7, according to qual ity, is now- rated .it from 4;' to G cents. Mess pork, which in 1870 was worth $2G.83, is now less than 13. Lard, then wortli lf centsis now quoted be low 7. The average w holesalo price of butter fifteen years ago wan 32 to .o wnts; during lSrtl, 20 to 23. Cheose, sold then at 17 to 185 . is now quoted at from l'Jif to 12j cents per pound. No. 1 Shore, mackerel, worth then from 320 to $30 per barrel, is worth at present $23; and George's Bank codfish has fallen from $.8.00 to $l.o0. In 1870 Mil waukeo Club wheat cost $1.20 .j per bushel and at tho e!o?o of 1884 had fallen to 82 cents. Extra State Hour quoted then at $5.50 has falleu to $3.10 per barrel, and western mixed corn had fallen from $1.00 to 50 cents. Canned tomatoes have fallen in prico from $2.10 per dozen cans in 1870 to from 75 to IK) cents in 1SS1. Maine corn quoted then at $3.00 per dozen cans now costs $1.20, and canned peaches have declined in prico from $1.00 to about $1.G5. Tho figures show that while wages have declined, there has also been a considerable reduc tion in tho prico of commodities, and some compensation has leeii. and is, enjoyed in tho smaller cost of living. After all, per haps tho times havo not been quit so hard as they havo seemed. CURRENT COMMENT. Detroit Pout: Gov. Alger's recom mendation that a Board of Pardons le established is excellent. Chicago Intcr-Occan: Tho Independ ent party still has his head above water at Springfield, and rides, tho waves like a duck. . Philadelphia Ihilktini Cameron is to hicceed himself; and ho deserves to suc ceed. Ho is a good deal above the aver age size of tho modern Senator, too. Detroit Times: If a constitutional amendment on the liquor question is to 1 submitted to tho people it ought to bo doue at tho spring election. Then it will 1h out of tho way. Pittsburg Vcm: Colonel MeCluro has started ou a southern swing around tho circle, but if he is after a Cabinet position he should not have given lLandad tho m sidj track on that circuit. Philadelphia Times: If straws show which wav tho wind blows, there can be little doubt that tho industrial zephyrs are blowing gently in the direction of greater Mid more permanent activity. New York S)tr: Mr. Cleveland' ad ministration will oither 1h a success or a failure. If it is a crreat Fuocess, Mr. Cleveland himelr will bo the Demo cratic candidate iu 1S-H if it is a great failure, jioVkhIv connected with it can possibly lo nominated or elected to tho Presidency in that year. Cincinnati Pwptinr: A Buckeye Cabi net Minister would a great help to tho Drrc erney of thi- stvte. but if they do i o? get, one thv will gird themselves up, not with the same nuranco of success but with a patriotism and bravery that will food on tho prospect of the future, and tht grateful knowledge that Dom-o-'rrov of some other state had Nvn I p nhed ahead.

Kequlrd the Differeuc fl'LiU'itlhUi Tuae.l Looking buck over my twenty ytar fcxperituet 1 can not tay that 1 regret my choice of a profession," remarked u detec tive ut ono of the city aeuciei yesterday. "What art the requisite of a good detec tive?" aked a rep'rt'r. "Fearledinesf cooing and self-control. Without tht-e a rnau can never be a jer fect detttive, fur though be may be Ubeful in gome branch tm of the huiue4 he can never attain to the highest eminence iu all of them. lie mtut also have strong re ceptive faculties and that power of gener alization which will enable him t jump at once to correct conclusions. Memory is one of hi most important essentials. One fcight of a face must imprmt it so indelibly upon hi recollection that he can never for get it, and he must rememier not only th face itself, but the time, place and circam fctanees with which it is associated. A memory of faces alone Is not Bufticient. Tho detective must have a strong memory for names, numbers and dates as well. He must be intelligent, and there is no knowl edge of any kind that may not Home time le of value to him in his profession. Detectives in real life are very different from those in novels and plays. The latter are represented as wearing various dis guise?, such as wigs, false whiskera, etc., which they suddenly pull off at the most unexpected moments, thereby reveal ing their identity. This is simply non sense. It is utterly impossible for the most skillful hair worker to make up a wig or a set of false whiskers that can not be de tected as false when worn, and levery the.iter-goer liows that the most skillful arlists iu "make up' can not put upon their faces lines and wrinkles which indicate age in such a way as to deceive, even when aided by the glamor of the foot-lights. No detective in real life ever attempted to wear any such guise. Detectives on tho stage are usually debonnair individuals, in neat suits and mutton-chop whiskers. In real life there is nothing distinctive in the deep appearance and manner of detec tives any more than there is in those of lawyers and merchants. For my own part I am more frequently taken for a "well-to-do farmer than anything else." "What is the salary of detectives?' "That is a hard question to answer. There is no business in which the price varies more. Sometimes a man, after hay ing had an apprenticeship on the police forco or in connection with some agency, will setup in business for himself as a pri yate detective! and then he charges what ever he pleases. Detectives are paid by tho day, and I have known some of these private detectives, such as I havo men tioned, to charge the unsophisticated $25 and even more per day. "How do men become detectives?" "They don't becomo'; they havo a nat ural gift in that direction. Detectives, like poets, are born, not made. Many of them legin as amateurs. For instance, something occurs in their own lives which causes them to turn detective for their own purpose. They work up the case success fully; they find that they liko the work and they embark in it as a business. "You would be surprised to find how clever some amateur detectives are. I know a young Chestnut street merchant who would make one of the greatest of all de tectivos' if he would follow the business. Ho wanted to find out the whereabouts and antecedents of a young fellow whom he suspected in a certain matter. Ho em ployed detectives, but they could discover nothing. Finally he began to look into the matter himself, and although the man he was after had left the city and covered up his tracks I'm blest if he didn't find out everything there was to find. He discov ered tho address of a girl on Race street to whom the man had been pa'ing atten tions. "lie called on her, represented himself as a lawyer, said that her lover would in herit a fortune; if his identity could bo es tablished, and in order to do that he'd have to have some specimens of his handwrit ing, and he persuaded her to let him have two of the love-letters the fellow had writ ten her. That was as neat a pieco of de tective work as I ever heard of. "It often happens that a man fails to be a good general detective through the lack of some one quality. Thus, I employed a young fellow once who I thought would make a splendid detective. Ho had every thing in his favor, possessing a splendid physique and appearance, an elegant and insinuating address, great shrewdness, re markable quickness of perception, and, in short, every requisite of a great detective, except one, as I afterward discovered. He was lacking in self-control, having nn ungovernable temper, to which he gav way on slight provocation. This grnt fault was not apparent at first, however, and I asinel him to a number of j difficult c.ae, which he worked up very athfnrtorily. At last I r .vel to tet his kill to th utreot, and et him to try to extort a eonf"-aon frnm a young woman charged with infanticide. Now, in th course of his int r iew with this girl, a he afterward confr.-id to rr" lell in lov with hr and took it into hi head that she w,n not nnlv inncnt of the cri::o Alleged j againt hT, but that he wi nt the real nvtar of the infant which sh w I ru5 d of having dtroyed, but that eh j had merely .nanied th" rrponbiliiy of j l-Hng m mother t hill a frin 1.
