The civil-fcervica reformers ooutinuo their effoits, nml ono cntmot but mlnilro their pcisKU'iicy mill tlicli' undoubted s-nrucstM'ss. Still one grim fact slnmh out; tliey have lost rather than gnlnel yiound within the Inst four years. No doubt many bad results come from a change of olllco-bolders with VH'ry change In llw political com plexion of the dominant party, but the belief Is gaining ground that tho party in power should have the prlvllcgo of doing things In its own way with its own people, should be libsolutely unham pered In tho work of conducting tho Qovcrnmcnt. If tho work bo not well done a verdict In accoidnnco with the facts will bo rendered at the next national election. 'L'Jiero nro n host of clerks and petty officials who should, perhaps, hold their places through good behavior, but when a placo Is of any Importance it Is but Justice that the dominant party should control it abso lutely, slnco the dominant party will bo held responslblq for Its management. One source of weakness of the civil mtvIco reformers is that they are about the most unmngnctlc group over at tempting tin inlluenec on thu course of political events. They nro dyspeptic. They take slight part In any political fray, when their own pet Ism Is not an issue, and they are, ns n rule, of tho opinion that the pace tho" country Is waking toward tho dcmnitlou bow. wows is fcomethlnj phenomenal. They are a collection of rcspoctablo pessi mists. They mo not popular, though held In much esteem. Tho civil service rcformem have their use. They arc liko tho death's head at the Greek banquet, not very much nllvo, but a constant reminder for good bo havlor. May Indigestion never carry them all off.

J.ct justice bu dorto Chicago, A Miimbor of Chicago suburbs havo lately voted in favor of annexation to the city, and comment Is mndo In nciv-spapm In other cities, Intimating tlint Chicago (s 4lB extended -out over a sarsely jpoj-uiftfed tenritofy; Aa iar oi wtmwvii a , k fnct,jbls Is not Ihccdoc, Chicago hits grown until the city limits, like those ot the old city of Loudon, nro by no means the llmlt.s of the city, and the outlying portion of the town on nil sides Is made up of business and residence districts, under village government. In other words, Chicago consists of n "core," so to Bpcak, under city government, whlln this "roro" Is encircled by a tow of vllla-es. It is impossible to tell with out consulting authorities where the clt3,cndsand tho village system begins. It is a bad arrangement, and this whole densely populated district should havo been under ono city government long ngo. Hvcn with tho addition's proposed Chicago will bo about as compact n municipality ms any In the country. There Is no denying tho great Lake city's enormous and continued growth. Tiir Washington militia made an ad mirable showing lu New York and receive, deservedly, tho admiring comment of tho New York press. Assisted by no State, tho Washington contingent paid their own ex penses, and did credit to the District. ORITIOUIiAR.

Then Lydla be came Immensely popular and grew rich, ns she was already beautiful.

When tho Gulteau ropo was run through, In making ready for tho hanging, tho charred wood loft a black streak all along one sldu of It. If that black streak Is wanting, you can be pretty suio that it is not a piece of tho rope that hung Gulteau, Apropos of tho racing at Ivy City, an old operator was talking of a clover trick which wus played on. the pool rooms about a year ago. Some tele graphers had cut tho wires which ran trom tho race course to tho pool-rooms, and by putting In a third not of Instru ments could receive tho results nnd send them Into tho pool-rooms as much later than tho actual tlmo of that tho race was run us they chose. When tho results came to them ono of tho number would go around to tho pool-rooms, nuiko their bets and then send thu message along. "It looked as If tho pool-rooms were at tho mercy of thco pcoplo," remarked tho operator. "There was no redress at tho hands of thu law."

Tills railroad from Mollcndo to Arequipa is .remarkable for running nearer tho stars than almost any other, railway, for whero It passes over tho western range of tho Andes into tho great basin of tlio southern continent tho track Is 11,705 feet abovo the sea, and tho' only higher point nt which a wheel was ever turned by steam is whero another Peruvian railway tunnels tho Andes. No other long road can show an equal amount of excavation nor such musslvo embankments, and the engineering dilllcultics ovqrcome in its construction were enormous.!

Thecltyof Omnh.ihas In Its service a force ofthousands of scavengers who draw-no pay, report to no olllcial, but aro protected by law from molestation. They aro tho crows who Hock in town ns Tcgularly as cold weather coincs, stay during the winter and vanish In tho spring. Each evening as tho shadows fall legions of crows wing their way lu a scimlngly endless lllght to tho willow copses nnd'clumps of small cottonwood trees on the banks 6f tho Missouri, whero they roost for thn night. A favorite haunt Is at the bend of the river, between Cut-Off and Florence Lakes, where the banks shelter tho northwest wind, says the Omaha World. Tlictnlr is thick with sablo wings and" resonant with hoarse caws thcra after sunset eacli night, as tho scavengers scttlo down among, .tho branches to dream of bifek-arca lunches and Car rion spreads. With tho break of day tho sablo flock1 bestirs Itself. Eacluncmbcrhops about to warm Its Chilled legs, stretches l;s shiny wings and heads back toward the city. The vast flock breaks Into small groups and they alight hero nnd tlioro on tho tree-tops nml survey the back jwrdtf and alleys until they can pick out foraging places, Then they dc sreud and In short order thef remains of tho breakfasts, tha scraps of meat front markets nnd tho rats killed by the household dogs and cats aro gobbled up. Some crows do scavenger work about tho residences. Others alight can tlously In tho alleys and others nro aU traded to the stock-yards and packing houses nt South Omaha. They light shy of the business blocks. Tlio crow who Inhabits the Missouri is of the same breed with tho crow who pulls up the farmer's corn in Vermont. In tho East he is a nuisance. Tho granger shoots him on sight, tries to trfghtcn him with scarecrows and dips the corn into Coal tar before lie plants it, in the hope that It will spoil tho pretty raven's nppctlto. Two healthy .New England crows can devastate a twenty-acro corn field if unmolested. But tho crow who mi grates to (ho Wes.t becomes a respected resident, and nobody asks "What was your pame back East I" or asks how he stood with the farmers. He mates with n chipper Dinah crow in a clump of willows on tho bottoms, nnd in duo tlmo they hatch out a nest of hungry crowlcts. Tlio father rustles for grasshoppers, bugs and toads, while tho youngsters aro growing th'clr pln-fcatltcrs. As soon as they can fly their mother leads them away from the contaminating in fluences of the city, hnto the pure, green country," and the wholo family tunics loose upon the vermin nnd in sects. None of them, ever trouble the corn fields, nnd none of tho farmers ever trouble them. Durlug the fall thoy pick up tho looso grain, and pow aud then play free lunch ilcnd on the corn fields. In the West much of the corn is left standing in the ileitis during tho winter, while in the East it is stored In the barn beforo snow falls. Perhaps this apparent generosity on the part of the fanner in Nebraska has something to do with the improved conduct of tho bird. However this may bo, the bird in tho Missouri Valley docs not rely upon the corn-field, summer or winter, for sub sistence. Nebraska, Iowa and Mis souri crows rendezvous largely at Peru, in this State. It Is a famous roost for them and has attracted the attention of naturalists. Professor Taylor of tho Normal School at Peru has'rnado a close Study of the habits of tlie.se crows and is writing a series of papers to be published In an Eastern magazine on that subject. Mcantlmo tlio sable -crow continues to ppend his summers In tho country- nnd his winters In the city, following Jho . fashion which his wealthiest biped patrons set tor tncinseives. iMcnnugc. )ut Ho Kniiw- Ills (lult.

The other day he was invited to tako a drive. It was so arranged nfter a little that ho could not fall to notice certain things, and ho had to feel obliged to ask: "My dear boy, you look troubled." "Yes, I am in deep trouble." "What Is It? I am your friend, and If I ?an do anything you have only to command," "I I hato to mention It." "Pshawl Thero should bo no hesita tion between friends."
