BEAUTIES AT HElt MAJESTY'S UK OEITIOXS. London Tmth has the follow ing : "There is j)robably no capital iu the world where the custom of paying respect to the titled repre sentatixes of a court sj'stcm is carried on under circumstances of such aggravating cruelty.

It is .March weather the fiercest, most uncanny and treacherous seasons of the year. Tn this "weather, women accus tomed to cloak and cloth them selves in wraps and furs whenever thev take their drives abroad or face the piercing atmosphere, are compelled to bare their necks and shoulders' to strip themselves of their apparel after the fashion of their prototype, Codiva, and for weary hours expose themselves to the guxc of all the rascally Peep ing Toms who choose to congre gate in the Park and indulge in impertinences that disgrace the name of jneu ami Englishmen. Few know who have not experi enced it the bitter insults to which modest women are subjected on their wav from home to attend a court or drawing room at Bucking ham Palace. As there is little or ganization of the trailic, and there is sure to be a dead clok at some point or other in the park, the shivering women are constantly exposed to the curious gaze of these eager sightseers.

Sir : in accordance with in structions received from the Secre tary of the Board of Health, I have the honor to submit to you a report of my work as. Government Medical Ollicer for the northern district of! K:luai clurini, the past year, for the j totnu ,lf wlvh I would resnoet. I fullv refer vou to the quarterly re- i 1 j ports furnished. j I am glad to be able to report j during the past year (the period during which I have been here) the entire absence of epidemic disease among the native popula tion, as also of serious illness. Du ring the first quarter (April to .1 une o0) I had considerable number of cases of enteric, or typhoid fever, occurring among the workers on Kilauea plantation ; but, at the end of the quarter, the epidemic had entirely disappeared, without the recurrence of a case up to this date. This improved condition 1 attribute to better hygienics and needful supervision. With regard to the question of leprosy, the cases submitted to me, admitting of no doubt as to their true nature, have been sent oft to Honolulu. A few cases of doubt ful character are under treatment and observation, and when satisfied as to their nature, they will be sent off. With regard to the question of the requirements of the district, I am thoroughly convinced of the utility and desirability of an hos pital in the centre of the district, for the more systematic and tho rough treatment of cases requiring isolation, and constant attention ana nursing. The planters in this district are much interested in this question, and would, I am convinced, give Your Excellency every support. Should vou think fit to take this suggestion into consideration, I would suggest that a portion of the hospital be set apart for cases of illness occuring among workers on the different plantations, and of the character requiring that special care ami attention which an hospi tal can alone a fiord, and that the j employers be called upon to sup- j port the hospital either by an an nual subscription, or payment for individual cases. I shall have bv t he end of the year V A.. i.miilot I'wl In i iiwTofi it .n m i tlw : 1 . . : , . s(diools in the district, the result ol which will be embodied in my usual quarterly report ending 31st March, 1 have the honor to be, Your obedient servant, John Bohland. i'aliiiiii Hi tinntlMijl Iravfllcr. lie stood :ii the ticket window slow ly uiinT'liii; an old-fashion leather wallet, while a oo.en men stood be hind him. driven to madness by the shouting of the porters calling their trains.

The passenger gasped twice or thrice, but could not say anything. The ticket seller went on- 'it't the i superintendent's idea.

It saves him the expense of going to the ; circus.'1 "Which way is the e!oek wrong?'' the passenger asked, in despairing accents, "fast or slow?" I "Don't know. That's part of the fun not to let anybody in the building know any thing about the time.

The gossips tell a funny story in which two Russian noblemen ami a favorite Parisian actress played the principal parts. Both of the Bayards were suitors for the fair lady's smiles, and both seemed to be equally esteem ed by her. It would appear that in Itussia, as well as in many other countries, a lock ot hair is considered a signal pledge of the tender passion, but if the truth musi im mid, few !' our theatrical divinities are ciulow cii with profuse CUcvelcuren and if i liey were, the incessant demand would soon exhaust the supply.

Each begged a tress of her hair in exchange for a lock of his own, to which the charming creature readily assented and without touching a single tuft of her head cirmingly managed to effect an exchange of parcels by which each gentleman received a curl of his rival's capillaries. The Count now wears the Baron's "hair" next his heart and the Baron sleeps with the Count's soalplock under his pillow. What terrible deceivers these "female women" are. Under the heading A Beacons- lie Id ISeyond the St as," the London Pall Mull Gazette says: Blaine's no mination is the most notable event for Kngland since Lincoln was assas sinated. At a Uepublican ratification meet ing in Harisburg, Pa., Saturday night, General .Simon Cameron, who presided, stated that the IJlaine-Logan t icket was a strong one and could not be beaten. Talks with 'ongre.-smen in Wash ington show that the Kepublieai s are much pleased with the- nomination of Blame and Logan, while Democrats who are candid f-ankiy admit that the ticket is about as strong as it could b' made. The teltgram notifying lilaine of his nomination was filed in the Wes tern Union telegraph otlice in the Convention hall, Chicago, at 3:37 im. and was delivered to Mr. Blaine at his home in Augusta, Me., and port ed in the London clubs at. 3:51, Chi go time, the same day. The widow of the murdered Gar field sent the following dispatch to Blaine: 44 Our household joins in one trreat thanksgiving. From the quiet j of our home we send a most earnest I win that through the turbulent j months to follow, and in the days of vlntnrv vnu imv be uuarded and : iv. w . , 7 v " ...... . w. i kept. Lucretia R. Garfield." I One ot tne most cogent reasons wny Mr. Blaine is the best candidate for the Uepublican party was stated by a ! speaker in the Convention when his candidacv was under discussion that is, the party needed a man who can be elected with or without New York, and of all the candidates that man was chosen.
