During the eight years of An drew Jackson's administration the government-collected a revenue of $355,182,775.16, of which $5.53 out of overy $1,000, or a total of $1,412,387.62, was stolen by dishonest officials. The same administration disbursed $223,546,049.41, of which $10.31 out of every $1,000, or a total of $3,306,236.74, wan stolen. In Martin Van Bnren'a administra t ration of four years, $137,094,438.34 was disbursed at an average cost in stealings of $21.15 in every $1,000, or a total of $2,899, 653.84. Under Franklin Pierce, who seems to have had the honesteet set of Democratic office holders that could be procured, as the rate of robbery in his time was lower than under any other Democratic president, $285,638, 875.65 were disbursed, at loss of $5.86 per $1,000, or a total of $1,674,852.64. Under the seven Democratic president from Jack son to Buchanan, inclusive, the average rate of robbery in making disbursements was a fraction more than $10.22 per $1,000. The average rate in making collections was some thing less, being about $2.14 in every $1,000. Everybody knows what the record of the Republican party has been iu this respect. Under President Arthur the' total loss from dishonesty in officials has been in collecting $2,961.62 and in disbursing $1,920.75. Will it pay to let the Democrats take hold of the financial affairs of the government now! The Washington National Republican puts the case well when it says: The 50,000 expectant (Democratic) office-holders have very deep and very empty pockets. The party doctrine is that the victors are entitled to the spoils. The $400,000,000 now in the treasury, where it can be applied to the payment of the na tional debt, the pensions due our wounded and disabled soldiers and their widows and orphans, the defenses of our vast stretch of sea coast, the building and equipment of a navy, or to the current expenses of the gov ernment, is safe in present hands, the people know. Judged fairly by the record, without one particle of party feeling or - prejudice, would it be equally safe in Democratic hands f Do the people want to take the chances of a change? Is it not much safer to make sure that well enough is let alone, es pecially when that well enough is slowly but snrely growing better? - RBITORIAL NOTES. President Barnard of Columbia college, who has been traveling in Ireland, says that he did not see the distress he had expected to find there. ' . The Russian Nihilists seem to be pretty quiet nowadays. The coercion act promul gated in 1881 in order to enable the police to cope with them has expired, but it is prompt ly renewed. St. Petersburg and .Moscow will remain for three years longer under the exceptional legislation, white for the rest of the country one year's prolongation is be lieved to be sufficient. ., Nearly three hundred stockholders of . a railroad in New Hampshire have the idea that they are entitled to the surplus of a mil lion and a half earned during the last fiscal year. If the directors think differently, legal proceedings will be instituted to compel a dividend. Should this be done, the stock holders will, of course, discover that they have no such rights in the premises as tney suppose. The Farmers' club of Chester, England, recently met to discuss the sparrow pest and its remedies. One. member- present stated that one bushel per acre of grain . had been destroyed by small birds in the country. The government returns showed that in 1882; 8,003,960 acres of wheat were grown, and in 1883, 2,613,162 acres. From these figures he had estimated that if the number of small birdshad been reduced by one-half the sav ing to the country would amount to $8,850y 450.:. , . -:- ;: The navy of the United States is not the only one on which money '- is wasted. " The English ship Thunderer, magnificent war ship that has cost about $2,500,000, includ ing repairs, has done' only about ',. two years' service since she was launched in 1872. On her trial trip she burst a boiler and : killed forty or fifty of the crew, and five years ago she met with a second accident, . bursting a 38-ton gun and killing and wounding sever al. These disasters have stamped the Thun derer as an "unlucky ship,".; and with navi gators this means enough to keep the power ful vessel idly rusting, though she . has . no actual fault. She lies in Malta harbor dis mantled. . - ' . Harper's Ferry is to be sold, with the fa mous little engine house where John Brown made his final struggle, almost the only building standing upon the property. It is said that Washington himself selected the spot for a national armory, and in 1794 the government bought 640 acres there, added 310 acres to this, and leased 1,395 acres more. Shops were at once built, and the making of muskets began in 1796. The manufacture of arms was continued there until the rebellion broke out, when the Confederates captured it without a blow. It was soon after taken by the Union forces, but not until after the more valuable machinery had been moved to Richmond. Stonewall Jackson recaptured it in 1862, the federals came in possession again, and the war ended with the village a total wreei. The water power is thought by some to be finest in the world. National debts are piling up very rapidly. In 1848 the national debts of the world amounted to only $8,245,000,000; in 1870 to $19,150,000,000; while to-day they reach $27,155,000,000. This increase has been progressive, growing greater every year. Up to the time of the French Revolution the world added only $30,000,000 annually to its indebtedness. From that lime to the battle of Waterloo the annual increase was $200,000,000; to 1848, $300,000,000; while at the present day it is $525,000,000, so that by the year 1900 it will owe $35,000,000,000. The great bulk of this sum has been ex pended for war. This indebtedness has in creased during the past thirty years $9,365, 000,000 on account of various wars. Not withstanding this great indebtedness the world has mortgaged itself for but little over nine per cent, of its wealth, the only coun tries that have exceeded this percentage being France, Russia, Austria, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Australia and Uruguay, Portugal standing in tha worst condition of any. Great as is the increase of indebtedness, the increase of wealth is more than four times as rapid, so that the world is growing richer all the time and developing more and more rapidly. The Bridgeport Standard well says cf Senator Piatt: Very few senators stand high er or have won a more deserved reputation for solid acquirements and sound views on all matters of public policy than Senator Orville H. Piatt of this State. An industri ous, able and conscientious man, applying himself to the duties of his office with intel ligence and aptitude, he has won an envia ble reputation for the thorough and compre hensive understanding of every question to which he has given his attention. His great speech upon the patent laws, the result of years of practical study and familiarity with the subject, is acknowledged to be the most important and exhaustive discussion of the topic that has ever been made, and it evinces the strong character of tne man's mind and the thorough and admirable quality of his methods of Btudy. Senator Piatt is, of course, a protectionist, but he is one from conviction and not because protection is a Republican political tenet. He has studied the subject and brings to bear upon it the same methods of investigation and the same correctness of apprehension which have char acterized his dealings with other public ques tions. To hear him discuss this matter therefore is to hear the whole subject laid bare in its ture aspects ' and its relations and connections logically and convincingly shown. JUDGITIENT !

She was a remarkably sensible young lady who made the request of her friends that af ter her decease she should not be buried by the side of a brook, where babbling lovers would wake her from her dreams; nor in any grand cemetery, where sightseers, conning over epitaphs, might disturb her, but be laid away to her last sleep under the counter of some merchant who did not advertise in the newspapers. There, she said, was to be found a depth of quiet slumber on which neither the sound of the buoyant foot of youth nor the weary shuffle of old age would ever intrude. Albany (Ga.) News.

Well, you should have gone into the count ing room down stairs to get it. However, never mind; I think I can find one here for you. Ah, there it is, my little man. Do you want it for yourself V "Yeth, thir." "Well, then, you needn't pay me anything, Pm always glad to encourage little boys who want to read good, substantial literature. IU warrant your papa has begun your educa tion right." "1 don t want it to read, thir." "What for, then ?" "To make a kite, thir. it'll make a bully kite. Pa says it's the lightest paper he ever thaw. " Chicago News. A citizen of Woodward avenue was yester day bossing the work of fitting screen doors to his house when a man with a very chari table expression of countenance turned in at the gate and inquired: "Going to have creen doors!" "Yes." "To keep flies out?" "Yes." "Then stop work right where you are. You won't need 'em." "Why not?" "Because I live just back of you on the other street. and this morning I bought a cow. I'm going to keep her in the barn all summer. and you can bet your bottom dollar that every fly in the city of Detroit will put in his full time on her back. I had one three years ago, and she drew in flies from seven miles around, and three different fly-screen men sued me for damages for killing their summer's ousinessr uetroit ree jfress. A woman is far more sensitive than a man. She has finer feelings and a more delicate mind. There are very tew men who realize this, and in consequence woman is made to endure much unnecessary suffering. One of our merchants was going to church with his wife .'. on Sunday morning, when she suddenly stopped,' and put her hand to her head. "What's the matter!" he asked, star tled by the look on her face. "Oh! I have got on my brown hat." "Eh!" ejaculated the astonished man. one nursr, into tears. "Why, Martha, what is the matter with you!" he demanded. "Don't you see what is the matter!" she returned in a sobbing voice. "I've got on my brown hat with my striped silk. Oh, what will people say?" Danbury News. COMMUNICATIONS. Tle Gnen. To the Editor of the Journal and Courier; ' The question of our publio Green, and whether there shall be any further encroach ment upon its territory in the shape of build ings, is an important one, and deserves the attention and interest it is now exciting. But it seems to the writer, judging from the communications in the newspapers, .that some neoDle are tzettincr unnecessarily alarmed. For no one proposes that any other pudiio ouueungs should oe located on the Green. And if anyone was so foolish as to make such a proposition, it would . not survive one day of the universal ridicule and condemnation which would be visited upon' it. : Now, as to the actual proposition or -re quest made, that the existing church edifices on the Green be allowed a small . additional space in their rear for the purposes of en largement or improvement, it ought to be decided according to what iB proposed to be done, and whether the present buildings are to be made to look better or worse than they now do. If , as in the case of Trinity church, the appearance of the edifice is to be great' improved, bo as to be architecturally and ar tistically more an object of beauty and adornment in the public eye than hitherto, why should anyone object to and begrudge the small additional space asked for to make a; great improvement? And if the other church societies on the Green make but a similar request to make their existing edi fices more comely and beautiful than they now are, but not erect new and separate buildings adjoining their present ones, (which would, indeed, create new eye-sores in the public gaze), let their request be granted and not opposed. E. T. S. If anting By Wholesale. To the Editor of the Journal and Courier: After reading the gentlemanly and courte ous reply of Mr. Phillips the question arose to our mind, "Is Mr Phillips the Corporation Counsel?" And is it not also strange that his wrath and righteous indignation was not kindled into a flame when Trinity church was allowed to extend its edifice, and again, as Mr. Phillips quotes the hackneyed couplet from Pope to show that "W. F." is like a rogue that "feels the halter," are we to con clude that all the members of Trinity church are - rogues? - Evidently in this case nV is Mr. Phillips who "draws the rope." Are we to infer that Mr. Phillips would like to see all the members of Trinity and the United churches hung together and would he be willing to act as hangman? So far as this practical quotation has any reference to the gentleman to whom it was addressed, or bearing on the subject under consideration, Mr. Phillips might as well have said: "Who killed cock robin? . I, said the sparrow. With my little arrow I killed cock robin." Try again Mr. Phillips. United Chup.ch. Unaccountable Things. To the Editor of the Journal and Courier: What a presidential campaign this is get ting to be! What unaccountable statements are made about the two leading candidates! What a quantity of mud is being thrown from all directions! A stranger among us would conclude from reading the Register and Palladium the past week that the Dwight Place church had been turned into a Blaine and Cleveland wigwam, where the orator of the day holds forth on the Sabbath from a religious standpoint and where, according to the religiously inclined Register and its ("A Republican Neighbor's") opinions, under date of the 22nd. both hold that the orator has rights as an "American citizen" to take the stump during the week for a presi dential candidate, which, to say tne least, is very obnoxious to nine-tenths of the congre gation that should be in attendance on the Sabbath and listen attentively to the exposi tion of such passages as the following: "Ye cannot serve God and Mammon," "Whatso ever ye would that men should do to you do ye even so to them," "Judge not, that you be not judged," "Speak evil of no man," "He that hath knowledge spareth his words, and a man of understanding is of an excel lent spirit," "Let him that stole steal no more," etc., etc. How unaccountable tnat tne wigwam is not packed with front, middle and "back pew" Republican members, and how unac countable that the speaker did not know the cause of so many vacant Beats last Sabbath after he had published the statement that Mr. Blaine was a thief and that by his influ ence and vote he should do all he could for the election of -MrvCleveland! How unaccount able the fact that a large number deem it their right as American citizens to exercise their privilege to hear a preacher on the Sab bath who gives "no uncertain sound" Sun day or Monday! How unaccountable the fact that so many people have so mnch ad vice to give the Dwight Place chnreh and so little by way of attendance and material aid. Yours from The Gallery. SneftTvsttoiM for Home Knmlhins. From the Christian Union. A room should only ccsstain as many pieces of furniture as are necessary for use in that particular room. Every piece put in for the purpose of producing an effect is an evidence of the lack of true artistic instinct on the part of the mistress. Let every piece of fur niture in the room be just as handsome as the circumstances of the family will ailow, but avoid every attempt at ornamentation for the mere sake of ornamentation. Can anything be more tiresome than a wall cov ered with glaring fans, brackets and cabinets filled with bric-a-brac, that you know is put ont for show? Some private parlors produce on the visitor the same effect produced by a visit to one of the so-called art parlors in our large stores. A cabinet containing rare bits of china or glass or pottery is an ornament and a means of education; but a cabinet filled with plates and cups and saucers, that can be obtained at any pretentious store, De longs properly in the dining room, where, in all probability, they would find their prop er places on the table. Mantels loaded down with ornaments are as much out of place and are as great an evidence of poor taste as au Overt rimmed bonnet. No room is restful that appears crowded or suggests extra exertion on the part of the housewife, any more than an: overheated, over-anxious hostess adds to the comfort of the guests at a dinner table. The mere business of living, the hurry and rush necessary to accomplish the various ob jects we have in view, make quiet, restful, healthful homes a necessity of the age. Not only does this false idea of what is artistic destroy the true uses of a home, but it ab sorbs the money that would be otherwise used in purchasing those things that would conduce to the moral and intellectual growth of the various members of the family. How much better that the children should have two magazines and a dozen new books in the year than that the parlor should have a love ly plush banner embroidered in impossible flowers, or that a pair of smirking Dresden figures should adorn (!) the mantel! How much better to use the old cover on the liv ing room table and cover the table with good reading matter than to buy the new cover, and by that means give time for a nothing-to-interest feeling and yawns to creep in the home circle! In how many homes is the evening looked forward to with a feeling of dread instead of anticipation,, because the plush and china ornaments do iot prove an endless source of interest and conversation! The Misfortune of Women Workers. From the Art Interchange. Most of the shops where decorative and knitted work is sold are constantly receiving on sale articles from women who live luxuri ously and who, anxious for "pin" money, are willing to sell their manufactures at any price. The result is that the worker who de pends upon her labor for support finds her self compelled to accept a pittance, the prices being so ruinously cut by these fine lady pi rates, whose rapacity thus adds to the mise ries of the honest toiler. Unfortunately the burden of this unjust and sly competition falls on those who are least able to bear it. Women with families of young children or with invalid relatives, who cannot leave home for a number of hours every day, and who are forced to work at some employment which can be done at home, are the ones who suffer from the money greediness of their su perior (?) sisters. The evil is a serious one, and unless some prompt measures are taken to lessen or eradicate it, much of the good which would otherwise result from training girls in the minor industrial arts will be neu tralized. The publio is not benefited by this cheap production. It is the shopkeeper to whom all the profits accrue, as the retail price of the goods is none the lower because women of leisure eut prices. A remedy which suggests itself is the multiplication and modification of exchanges for women's work and decorative art societies where the publio could purchase good work at fair prices. Most of the already established as sociations of this class do not keep enough of a variety to tempt purchasers, or if they have an attractive list of goods the prices asked are altogether too high. The association, too, is neither regarded nor advertised as a business enterprise, interest being demanded for it as a sort of an asylum for women. It would in the end result better for the associ ation and for those who have work on sale if the exchange or the art society were conduct ed on purely business principles and useful or ornamental articles sold for a fair price. If possible, some special line of work, de signing, painting upon china or canvas, met al work, preserves or knitted garments) should be made the leading industry of each association, so that an extensive reputation for manufacturing that particular class of goods could be acquired. Other kinds of work would not of course be exoluded, but the association would be known for making its specialty pre-eminently well. This or some other remedy will have to be resorted to if deserving poor women workers are to be saved from the rapacity of their heartless well-to-do sister women. - The Emperor of Germany. From Blackwood's Magazine. The emperor looks well on horseback, and is at home in the saddle, bnt he is not what . is called a good rider, and takes no special interest in horses, except as regards military -requirements. He rides with loose reins, . letting his steed have its own way and seem ing to reckon as confidentially on his horse's good service as on those of the other instru ments of his will. In former years he has frequently met with accidents in consequence of his careless riding. Now his aides-de camp always keep a sharp lookout before him when he canters off in his peculiar way, looking in every direction except where a careful rider ought to look, viz. , at the road before him. When he goes across country the officer who trains the horses for the em perors special service, and who is an accom plished rider, habitually precedes him by a few hundred yards to see that there is no dangerous ditch or wall ahead; smaller things the emperor will clear apparently without noticing them. Extraordinary care is taken with the training of the horses for the emperor's personal use. They are always safe, powerful, intelligent, good-natured ani mals, generally half-blood, shying at nothing and requiring scarcely any attention on the part of their rider. The emperor has a cer tain liking for manly field sports and is a good shot, but he is not what is called a sporting man. His favorite flower is that most prosaic, pretty, uninteresting corn flow er, the blue bottle, without any perfume, but which looks so bright and healthy in a large field of wheat and so fresh and inno cent in the hair of a fair young girl. I am told that the emperor's grandmother had this same curious taste in respect to flowers. The emperor is tall and well built and when he was young had a fine, manly presance. Though he is now very old he has a won derfully dignified attitude, and it is astonish ing as well as fatiguing for those who are with him to see how long he can stand without getting tired.
