Advertisers who want to reacts tbe people of a state must advertise in tne best papers printed in tbe leading towns. There is a constant call upon us to make a selection for advertisers and to name favorable prices at which advsr Using may be secured. There is a wide difference between the prices demanded by newspapers for an advertisement to be inserted a month and one whlc is is to appear for a year. Experienced and successful advertisers contract for tbe long-eat period ; but there are many wbo are prevented from doing tbis by tbe nature of their advertisement, or because tbe adver tisement is one which they wish to try experimentally before making con tracts for any extended time. Bearing in mind tbe wants of adver tisers we bave agreements with lead ing local papers I n every State by which we insert advertisements for a single month at prices approximating the yearly rate. i So great is the reduction from regular monthly rates, tbat advertisers do not understand how the advertising can be secured for tbe price which we name. For instance : in tbe State of Connecti cut, a list of 18 selected Daily and Weekly papers, which would cost .S5.17 If contracted with singly, we are able to offer for S36. We secure a paper at the State capital, one in each town having as much aa 5,009 populalion,and at the court house town in populous and wealthy, conn ties.

When Alexander II, took np the reins of the government (March 2, 1S55) his first act was to issue a manifesto declaring his intention to uphold the glory of the empire as it had been npheld by Peter, Catherine, Alexander, and Nicholas. He had a heavy load to carry, for Nicholas had left Bussia engaged almost sin gle handed in a war against England, France, Turkey and Sardinia. On the return of peace, which was declared about a year after his se cession, he showed his intention to do the best he could for his people by various reform atory measures. His first step was to reduce the army to the lowest number consistent with the safety of the empire. He relaxed the lines drawn to the almost tension by his predecessors, beginning by emancipating ths nation from its military routine, whioh per meated every branch of the administration. He reorganized the standing army, establish ed common schools for the soldiers, dissolved the greater part of the military columns, freed public instruction from military discipline, and instead of placing discharged officers as tutors and professors at the head of the edu cational establishments appointed men spe cially instructed to fill such positions. He advanced young men of ability in the differ ent branches of publio service, removing aged servitors by assigning them annuities, annulled the law which prevented Bussians from traveling in foreign countries, and inau gurated that vast system of internal communi cation which is to cover his immense empire with a network of railroads and canals, giving a new impulse to internal trade and industry. At the same time he sought to develop the na tional commercial marine and to induoe mer chants to extend their relations with foreign countries. But chief in tne Czar's scheme of reform, and that which will make his name immortal, was the emancipation of the serfs. There were in Busgian 21,625,600 peasant' serfs and domestics attached to the soil and owing ser vice to its owners. In March. 1856. the Czar declared to the Marshals of the Noblesse at Moscow tbat he had not then the intention of annihilating strfage, but that the existing manner of possessing serfs could not remain unchanged. "It is better," he added; "to abolish serfage from above than to await the time when it will begin to abolish itself from below." The Czar had hoped his words would be responded to, but th.y were not,' being too vague to encourage those who favored abolition or to impress those who opposed it. The Government, therefore, was compelled to devise and carry out the work of emanci pation, which was completed on the 19th of February, 1861, when the law was signed lib erating the serfs already mentioned. The State peasants, who swelled the total to 40, 030,000, had their curious intermediate posi tion between serfage and freedom amended by imperial orders in September, 1859, and October, 1861, and finally in 1866 were placed as regards administration on a level with the emancipated serfs of the proprietors. By the law then signed the serfs received the civil rights of the free and rural classes, the Communes retained the land they actually held, agreeing to pay the proprietor an annu al due in labor or money, and the Govern ment agree to help them to pnrohase these lands out-and-out. The change of course caused a great shock, which has not yet ceased to be felt. In February, 1864, the Polish serfs were also emancipated. Another great reform introduced by Alex ander was the creation, in 1865, of represen tative assemblies in all the provinces. The higher classes and even the nobles erroneously anticipated that this measure would lead to the inauguration of a national Parliament. Alexander also reformed the system of mili tary conscription, and introduced the practice of trial by jury. Bat the Czar's noble work of reform was not destined to go on unchecked. The insur rection in Poland was put down with the most despotic severity, ahd simultaneously occurred another event to change the direction of his life-work. On the 16th of April, 1866, a stu dent fired on Alexander. He "surrounded himself with police and spies, who fed him with horrors to assure their influence over him and without securing his safety incurred the suspicion and contempt of his people. He had alienated the nobles by his reforms ; he vainly endeavored to become reconciled to them by attempting repressions whioh aliena ted the people. The reforms of the educa tional system had to be checked lest th. seeds of revolution should be sown : the work of fettering the press had to be renewed. The attempt at assassination by the Pole Berezow ski at Paris, June 6, 186T, still further con tributed to oheck the work of reform. And now simultaneously began the Nihilist and Pan-Slavic movements, and Bussia revived her long-intermitted activity in foreign af fairs." It is not our purpose to recount the success es of the Russian armies daring the period from 1866, when the central Asiatic conquests were commenced, to 1878, in the early part of whioh year a treaty of peace with Turkey was signed. Daring this period there was little or no advance of social and administrative re form, and at the end of the wars the coun try was in very bad condition financially, and the prevailing discontent greatly favored the Nihilists, who have been very active and skillful in taking advantage of it. Since they commenced open operations - assassination and incendiarism have been their weapons. The Czar's ministers have been shot down. His own life has been several times attempted. He is not safe in his own palace, and there would be little surprise If it should be an -nonnced to-day that he had been killed. It is a very melancholy period in a reign that at first promised so much for Bussia. EDITORIAL. NOTES. Virginia now has a license system. It will have to work pretty badly to be worse than the bell-punch plan. The Virginia legislature has made a bad mistake, not to call it anything worse, in pass ing the Biddleberger but, whioh rednees the principal of the State debt from $33,000,000 to 20,000,000 by eliminating the capitalized, war and reconstruction interest, and fixes the rate of interest at three per cent. As Gover nor Holliday is not a repudiator be will prob ably veto the bill, and it is doubtful if it can be passed over his veto. The Chinese Government wants to know if this Government is going to protect the peaceful and industrious citizens of China who are residents of this country. The Chi nese Government should not have oocasion to ask such a question. A plan for a ship canal across Cape Cod to furnish an outlet for southern commerce has been prepared by Mr. Clemens Herschel, civil engineer of Boston. He estimates the cost of connecting Cape Cod Bay with Buz zard's Bay, all told, at $2,500,000, which is much less than previous estimates. The pro posed canal would be about seven and a half miles in length. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch was very much out of temper because St. Louis was not se looted as the place for holding the National Democratic Convention, and charged that the olaims of the city were defeated by "bad gen eralship and a big drunk." Byington writes to the Norwalk Gazette that he fears the charge is too true from what he saw of tbe af fair. He also says that it was "Confederate preponderation" that settled the locality in fa vor of Cincinnati. The town and city elections in Maine show, by great Bepublican gains, that the people are not disposed to condone the fraud that was intended to deprive them of their rights. In the disfranchised towns and cities the senti ment of the people has been made especially plain. In Portland, for example, where the combined Democrats and Greenbackers had a majority of 40, in a total of 5,844, last year, the Bepublicans have a majority of 1,234, in a total vote of 5,570, this year. A like result has been reached in Bath, another disfran chised city. The capital of a great and civilized country ought to be a safer place to live In than Wash ington seems to be. Not long ago a yonng man was murdered in one of the streets there at an early hour in the evening by some ne groes whose purpose in committing the crime was robbery. Last week a young lady while on her way to church was seized by a negro and so brutally outraged that she has since died. Crime of various kinds so flourishes in Washington that the citizens talk of a vigi lance committee if a more effective police force is not provided. When Panitelli Andrea Faohiri, Antonio Z. Vouros and Antonio Andrew Fachiri, in charge Of the New York branch of the famous ootton and produce commission house of Balli Brothers, London, went down to their office Monday morning, they were surprised at being handed notes whioh informed them that they retired immediately from the employ ment of Balli Brothers. These notes caused the recipients a sensation, and also made a sensation among the many business acquaint ances of the three. This summary proceeding is explained by the fact that the head of the London house had discovered that the New York managers were speculating, whioh was against the rigid rule of the firm, to the ob servance of which rule even gentlemen who invest 50,000 in the concern are required to bind themselves. There is no way of know ing how much the New York managers have made, but on the whole their speculation has probably been a bad one. The British army is composed of 121,444 Englishmen, 13,916 Scotchmen, and 36,S83 Irishmen. Besides these there are 2,854 for eigners, serving mostly in the Colonial Corps, and 8,970 men concerning whose nationality no particulars are given. The religion of the soldier appears to follow his nationality pretty closely, as there are 13,708 Presbyterians and 39,743 Boman Catholics ; the Church of Eng land olaims 114,031, and 7,462 are described as "other Protestants." There is one Jew in the cavalry, and 152 Hindoos and Mahome tans are to be found in the Colonial Corps. The statistics as to the heisht of men serving in the army will be somewhat disappointing to those who are wont to boast of the stature of an Englishman ; 415 men per 1,000 are under 5 feet 7 inches, and only 20 per 1,000 are 6 feet and upwards. As regards the age of men now serving there is a slight improvement as compared with former years, 106 men only per 1,000 being under twenty years of age, while 261 per 1,000 are over thirty, leaving nearly two-thirds of tho non-commissioned offioers and rank and file in the prime of life. The new civil damage bill, now pending in the Massachusetts Senate, provides that a liquor seller shall be answerable for all dam ages which may follow the sale of liquor to an intoxicated person, or to any one who he has reasonable cause to suppose will become in toxicated, or to any one to whom he has been warned not to sell. The owner of the building in which the sale is made is not to be answera ble for the damage which may result from the sale, but the seller is required, before receiv ing his license, to give bond, with sufficient sureties, in the sum of two thousand dollars, to satisfy any judgment whioh may be recov ered under thie law. The temperance people make some forcible objections to this bill. It would be very difficult to prove that a custo mer was intoxicated when the sals was made, or that the seller bad reason to suppose that he would become so. If the customer were already intoxicated when the sale was made, the misohief would be already done, and the person who ought to be held answerable would be he who supplied the liquor which caused the drunkenness. A clever lawyer would have little trouble in confusing a jury on the essential points. The warning by a wife or relative might be of some value. FOOD FOR THOUGHT.

Pioneer Press At the last meeting of the astronomical de partment of tbe State Historical Society, held in at. r'aul a few days ago, an exceedingly interesting and valuable paper on -mete orites was read by Professor E. J. Tbomp son, of the State University. The follow ing extract from this paper relating to a meteorite that fell across the southern line of Minnesota, near the town of Jackson, will be found of interest : "May 10, 1879, was a bright, clear, oloudless aay. Ataoolock in tue afternoon, in full sunshine, this meteorite passed through the air, exploded, and fell in the town of Erte ville, Emniet county. Iowa, about ten or twelve miles below the southern boundary of Jackson county, Minn., in 94 deg. 30 sec. north, longitude 94 deg. 50 sec. weBt from Greenwich. The path it followed marked a course from northwest to southeast, and was saen for a distance of several hundred miles. Mr. W. L. Wilkins, of Austin, told me that as he was traveling in the northwest part of Mower county. May 10, about 5 p. m. , he heard an unusual crackling and hissing noise about him, and upon looking up saw to the west of him the meteor passing. Tnis was more than 100 miles from where it fell. Mr. Pric hard, who resides in the northwest part of Blue Earth county, saw it pass as it seem ed far to the northwest of him, and described it as a most startling and wonderful phenom enon a huge ball of fire, followed closely by a cloud of fire. Reports from other localities still further northwest, some from Dakota, confirm the opinion that its direc tion was as above stated. Its appear ance in the heavens was that of a huge globe of fire attended by a fiery cloud. The inhab itants residing within the area of a circle whose diameter is six miles, for a few min utes were greatly alarmed, not more at the simple flying ball of fire whioh seemed so near to tbem, than at the terrific explosions immediately above them ; those who did not see it thought an earthquake had occurred, and were in great terror. All agree essen tially in giving the facts connected with its explosion and force. The noisa accompany ing its flight is described as rumbling, crack ing, crashing, similar to tbat produced by a train of cars crossing a long bridge ; then came a very loud report, immediately fol lowed by two distinct reports in quick suc cession, though not so explosive or loud as the first. It Btruck the ground in separate masses, together with smaller fragments scat tered over an area of three or four miles. There were two large pieces which fell about two miles apart, in a direct northwest line, both at an angle of nearly eighty degrees. The impression of those who saw the meteor in the air just at the time of the explosion was tbat still another large mass tell not tar distant. This has been confirmed by the re cent finding of a piece weighing 150 pounds, by a trapper named Bobert Pietz. The largest mass, weighing 470 pounds, now at Keokuk, Iowa, penetrated a hard blue clay soil, covered with water, to the depth of twelve feet. The mass weighing 170 pounds, now at tne Htate university, ren on a dry grassy knoll, and was buried to the depth of five and a half feet below the Bur face. A few rods from the largest mass we found a fragment weighing thirty pounds, and a sohoolboy picked up a fragment weigh ing three pounds a little distanoe away from the largest. These resembled the great body of the meteorite in all respeots. 'There was no appreciable difference in time between the explosion and the striking on the earth. The form of all the pieces is like that of rudely detached masses from a quarry, or ejected from the mouth of a vol cano. The mass in the museum of the uni versity has an irregular rhomboidal outline, about 15 by 18 inches, of an average thick ness of 6 inches, and when first obtained was covered, as most meteorites, with a black shining coat or crust. The largest mass is not so regular in its formation. It is more ragged, and bristles with points of nickel- iferous iron. Jfrofessor neinncn, or tne Iowa State University, pronounced it the more valuable of the two large masses : but full analyses will probably determine them to be one and the same ; while the nickelif erous iron seemed more abundant in the larg est, the crystalline formations are far more numerous in tne smaller. 'Several observers saw the large masses when they struck the ground, and state posi tively that sod and gravel and dirt scattered far and near, and for a moment the air was filled with flying stones and small masses of earth. The largest struct near a school house, the smaller within twenty or thirty rods of a dwelling, much to the terrorof the inmates. The language of tne good old iaay sitting by the window at tbe time in a meas ure describes their fright : 'My soul ! I thought the end of the world had come, and y (.11 1 .1 ' rpi.A nnn.

The follow ing is an account given me by one of the near est eye-witnesses : .'I was plowing corn, and my team was making to the westward, when suddenly I was startled by a distant whirring sound, whioh grew louder and nearer, broken and crackling, and as I looked up toward the northwest 1 saw a large ball of nre sweeping, as it were, down upon me. Instantly there came a loud report, at once followed by a sec ond and third, not so loud as the first. In a few moments several persons were on the spot where they saw it fall, and began digging, for what they knew not, only, as they expressed it, 'that ball of fire they saw fall there.' Tbe earth through whioh it passed presented a craoked, baked appearance, and the openings in the ground made by the meteorites indicat ed a twisting or revolving motion, as they seemed bored as with a large auger. With reference to its altitude when first seen, and at the . moment of the explosion and the imme diate descent, our knowledge, at best, must be quite imperfect. Calculating as well as I have been able from data given me by an expert and skillful civil engineer, who was at the time at work on the Southern Minnesota rail road, and who carefully as possible noted its appearance and altitude, I should judge its height to have been, before the reports were heard, from thirty to forty miles. At the time of the explosion it must have been very muoh less. From a partial, and yet unfinish ed computation, it is thought its velocity was between two and four miles per second." Tbe Story of a Great Paris mystery. The Parisians, says a Paris correspondent. are determined to have a mystery now and then. They have been fond of something of the kind ever since the time of the Tour de Nesle. Only the other day they were horri fied with blood curdling descriptions of a house in an obscure suburb which had been rentea bv a Rtrancer. forbidding in appearance and evidentlv bent noon the consummation of some hideous orime, judging from the prepa rations which he had made. Rumors ran in the neighborhood that he was darkly engaged in plotting against tbe life of some one for he had brought to the house a huge case made of solid wood, lined with a heavy cloth and pierced with air-holes. It seemed just the sort of a thing in whioh to imprison some helpless creature whom he was desirous of torturing. The woman of whom ha had hir ed the honse iroied his movements in a most indiscreet manner, and when one day she saw him bring in half a dozen ohains, such aa are -ndinarilv used for dogs, she could not restrain herself any longer, so she went off to the neighbors with 8 terribly magnified version of the whole matter, and the result was that the police were called in. Meantime the mys terious stranger appeared to have gained some knowledge of the movement against him, for he disappeared, and was heard of no more at that period. The police agents came out from Paris and spent a day or two in the house. There Btood the wooden case, gaping wide open, with its cushioned sides and the staples driven into them, seeming to indicate that a human being was to be chained in there alive. The agents began to think that some attempt at blackmail was to be made by a band of clever criminals. Every endeavor was made to catch the sup posed culprit, and the concierges, shoemak ers and water carriers of the capital, with bated breath, nightly discussed the mystery, until one fine morning the prefect of polios reoeived a letter from a wealthy gentleman who lives but a little way from-Paris, explain ing the whole matter. It appears that some weeks ago this gentleman was bitten by one of his dogs in such a manner as to awaken suspicion in his mind that the dog was mad. He cauterized the wound, but tne thought that he was possibly a victim of hydrophobia so preyed npon his mind that he determined to separate, himself from his familv for a time. and to experiment upon certain animals, by luuuumLiug l Liu 111 wilii hib owo Dioou, in oraer to ascertain if the rags were really lurking in his system. With this intention he hired the house in the suburbs and prepared a case in which he proposed to Bhut np three of his dogs, and to study their svmntoms until he felt sure either that he was free lrom danger or that there was a crisis to fear. Just as he was about to bring the doss to the cottace and to inoculate them there, he found that tne meddlesome neighbors were likely to get him into temporary trouble, so he gave up his design. He enclosed to the prefect the false beard and spectacles with which he had been disguised when he rented the cottage. The prefect smiled the peculiar smile which men do when compelled to admit that they are sold, and the great mystery was at an end. A Very Sagacious Horse. Tbe Wonderful Intelligence lie Dis played in tbe Everyday Duties of Life. From the Columbus (Ohio) Journal J A very old and remarkable horse, the prop erty of Colonel John H. James, of Urbana, Ohio, has recently died. The intelligence of this horse surpassed anything I have ever known, and was quite equal to any well-authenticated case I have read of. Old Bonny, like most intelligent people, had decided ideas of his own. One amusing in stance of this was a dislike to being hitched. and when this feeling was disregarded he would deliberately break his halter and then stand half a day by the hitchiog-post. He was never subject to that accident-produciDg DarDarism or Dimas, out usea nis eyes freely to see what was going on behind as well as around and before him. He would stand quietly and look back at the buggy until who ever was getting in was seated, and then would start. He had a different gait for nearly every person that drove him. With those in the habit of going fast he would start off briskly without being urged. With chil dren (for every one was allowed to drive old Bonny who could sit on the seat and hold the lines) his deliberate and careful movements showed that he considered himself responsi ble for their safety. When they attempted to urge him with the whip I have seen him look round at them a hundred times with a look that said as plain as words, "Children, I un derstand this business better than you do," and if they still persisted he would give a kind of impatient kick, though scarcely rais ing his feet from the ground, but go faster he would not. With the colonel he had a kind of dog trot, and it took a vigorous applica tion of the whip to make him change it. When the colonel was in his office old Bonny, though never hitohed, stood at bis hitching post in front, unless the sun or flies became troublesome, when he would go round tbe corner and through a narrow lane into the back lot, but could be found in one plaoe or the other, except on a few occasions, becom ing impatient at an unusual delay, he went home alone. At noon he would go up to the steps, and when the buggy was unloaded and all the packages taken out, he would go to his box under a free and wait for bis dinner, while at night be would go with equal regu larity and alone to the stable. . Bonny oould turn a buggy wherever it could be turned. and his skill and deliberation in turning in a narrow place or in extricating himself from the entanglement of other vehicles, has often been watched and wondered at by the by standers. He would turn one way until the wheels were too much cramped or he was in danger of hitting something, and then turn the other way and back or start up, as might be necessary, always watching tbe movements of his own buggy and of anything that might be in the way. If his master got out he would wait for him, and if he walked, Bonny would follow him all about town, stopping when he stopped, and starting when he started. Bonny undoubtedly came to distinguish Sunday from other days. Whether this was from the ringing of the church bells or from the later hour he was wanted, or from a direct influx of that wisdom that teaches tbe spar row to fly, on Sunday, without the raising of a line, he would turn to the right and go to church, while on workdays he would turn to the left and go down town. One of his last exploits was one of his most remarkable. He bad lost two shoes, and his feet bad become a little sore. Pat, the stable boy, wbo had be lieved tbat Bonny knew more than many men, took two shoes, tied them together with a string, shook them before his face, and hung them across his neck, and then started him off alone, and be went four blocks, turning two corners to Edward Hill's blacksmith shop, where he had been Bhod for twenty years, and after the shoes were put on went home alone. I am assured of tne truth by the stable boy and by Mr. Hill, who had for twenty years watched and wondered at nis wonderful sagacity. Since his last exploit, I have no doubt that Mr. Hill would freely and conscientiously make oath that old Bonny knew more than half his human customers. Now the Urbana Union informs us that old Bonny's feet have for the last time been iron shod to fit them for the rough ways of this rough world. If, as we sometimes hope and half believe, it is a part of the plan of that wisdom which watches the falling sparrow, that animal life, with its wonderful instincts and sometimes wonderful intelligence, shall reappear on the other side of the curtain that separates this world of matter and shadows and death from the world of substance and spirit and life, there can be no doubt on which side of the great gulf which separates the habitually well -disposed and useful from tbe habitually evil disposed and useless, old Bonny will ap pear.
