Sir Edward Salliyaa is doing some good work in putting before tia -people of Great Britain facts and arguments which show that free trade is not the unmitigated bless ing it has bo long been . supposed to be in England. His letters on the subject are at tracting ft great deal of attention, as they ought to. Sir Edward makes nse of a notable phrase "capital and labor" to comprehend the skill, industry, strength and health of the working olaases. This he says represents in England an annual income of $2,100,000,000, and stands for an aggregate capital of $31,985,000,000. There are 3,000,000 Eng lishmen dependent npon the increase of what is ordinarily oalled eapital, while 30,000,000 depend upon this capital of labor. It is generally acknowledged that it is the first dnfy of goyernment to protect and pro mote the employment of this enormous capi tal of labor, yet that is just what free trade does not do. It protects and promotes in comes from moneyed capital and drives working people out of the country or makes the capital of labor profitless. And in order to show how free trade works Sir Edward gives, among others, the following illustra tion: A London ' concern has $250,000 worth of labels to be made, and acting on the free trade principle of buying in the cheap est market, contracts with a continental con cern to make them, saying $50,000 by the operation. This is a handsome saving to their moneyed capital, bnt to the capital of labor it is a dead loss. The paper makers, type founders, ink " manufacturers, printers, etc, are deprived of $250,000 worth of em ployment. It is. impossible to convince English workingmen that it is for their benefit to pay $200,000 to " German workers. The $50,000 saved certainly does not help them a penny. It is possible that the articles to whioh these labels are affixed might be par chased for a trifle less than if the labels were made by the English workmen; bnt that is very doubtful. At any rate, no one can claim that the saving of $50,000 to the firm offsets ' to. the workmen tne loss of $250,000 worth of employment. This is a strong and plain way of potting the case. It osght to be useful to the Eng lish, and is well worth attention in this country. Such arguments are easily under stood and are worth much more . thaa the theories of the free traders. EIITOKIAL NOTES. The trout season has opened and the tront seem to be caught with a hook and line, as nsnal. The twe cleverest and most hizhlv edu cated women in Germany are aaid to be the Empress Victoria of Germany and the Qaeen of Italy. Oh, woman! A Mains ' schoolmistress re ceived a few years ago from her lover deeds for California lands which both of them con sidered worthless. She has jnst sold them for $256,000. She has now cruelly refused to marry the young man on the ground that he is only a fortune banter. . The potato Bugs will do well to- emigrate. A resident of Cartwright(Ont.)has invented a machine for catching and killing potato bags. It resembles a wheelbarrow with a fan on each side of It, and is propelled in the same way. It is wheeled between two rows of plants, from which the fans sweep the bags against the oenterboard, on striking whioh they fall between two rapidly revolv ing rollers and are crashed to a pulp. ThJ motive power is obtained from the wheel. It works effectively. The Austrian legislature is desirous of diminishing opportunities for drinking and will hereafter allow only one liquor shop to a commune of leas than five hundred people. Anyone who has been convicted of drunken ness three times in one year is to as debarred from entering a public house and any publi can serving him will be subject to penalties. Bnt how a. man is to know whether the man is a triple drunkard or not will puzzle the publican, and it is suggested that a man be made to wear a stripe on the arm of his coat. The Georgia clergyman who preached his own funeral sermon the other day gave some good reasons for his performance. "Eighty fonr years have passed over my head," said he, "and I have preached the gospel fifty years. I have heard sermons preached over the bodies of people that were not tine. I have heard bad men praised and good men half-praised. A man knows his own faults and his own good points best, and I have dej termiaed not to have men talking over my dead body about things they do not know as well as I do. Hence this sermon." A well known Paris olentist,Dr.Delaunay, has made some curious discoveries whioh show the connection between little and great things. To ascertain the qualities ef an ap plicant cook he says it is sufficient to give her a plate to clean, a sane to make and watch how she moves her hand in either act. If she moves it from left to -right, or in the direction of the hands of a watch, you may trust her; if the other way she .is certain to be stupid and incapable. The intelligence of people may also be ganged, the doctor far ther says, by asking them to make a oirole en paper with a pencil and noting in which direction the hand is moved. The goed stu dents in a mathematical class draw circles from left to right. - The inferiority of the softer sex, as well as the male duaoes, is shown by drawing from right to left. Postmaster General Dickinson having made a postal convention with Canada, whereby seeds and some other things may be sent by mail froiu Canada to any part of the United States at the rate of foar cents a pound, while similar articles if mailed from the United States must pay postage at the rate of 18 eenta a pound, issued an order .that if citizens of the United Statra should avail themselves of the Canadian rates- by having their pack ages of seeds mailed in Canada those pack ages must not be delivered until the full American rate - had been paid. But Judge "Wallace of the United States dis trict - court is of opinion that the Postmaster General has no right to do this, and has issued an injunction restrain ing the postmaster of Utioit, New Tork,from exacting ' the additional postage under Mr. Dickinson's order. The new ballot law of Wisconsin was need at the recent election in Milwaukee and it worked well. It provides for a ticket room and a voting room at each election precinct, with a hall or passage-way between. , The voter receives a ballot from the sworn State election officers in the front roots, which only one voter is allowed to enter at a time, and passes alone to tbe voting room, where ha deposits his ballot and goes ont of a door provided for that purpose. No crowd of persons is allowed to collect within a hundred feet of the polling places and no person is allowed to offer tickets or solicit votes within the same distance. The Milwaukee Sentinel says: The system of voting in Milwaukee has . pre ved a decided advantage over that whiah formerly prevailed. Tender the old system, with such an issne as divided parties on Tuesday, there would inevitably have been more or less trouble at the - polls. Voters would have been kejpt from the polls by intimidation, there would have been knock-downs and broken heads. All this was avoided by the arrangement that allowed each voter to select his ballot without inter ference, to enter alone the room where the ballot box was kept, and which provided for his passing out immediately by another door than that at which he entered. It broke up the business of ticket pedaling, of browbeat ing ignorant voter, and secured a perfectly orderly and quiet election. CLOSE. A clothes caU "Say, Maria, hand me down my spring suit!"

The next figure-head of the historic craft, with which she entered on her glorious career in 1813, was that of Neptune, which is referred to in the old song: "By the trident of Neptune," brave & uil cried "let's steer. It points to the track of the bullying Gurriere." ' There is a representation of this figure head in Drake's "Old Land-Marks of Bos ton," to which I am indebted for the facts herein stated. The third figure-head of the Constitution was a bast of General Jackson, and there is a special interest associated with it from the circumstances connected with a suocessfal assault upon the wooden image while the vessel was at Chariest own nearly fifty -four years ago. This was called the "affair of the figure-head," and throws an interesting light npon the political animosi ties of those days.' President Jackson had visited Boston the year before, and though received with the oourtesy due to his official position and made an LL.D. at Cambridge, where, as Dr. Pea body relates in his "Harvard Seminiscences," his bearing exoited the admiration of Presi dent Oninov and others of his Strom? rjoliti- j-cal opponents, yet the pressure of popular feeling was marKea against mm on account of his politioal acts. The intelligence that Commodore Elliott, the commander of the navy-yard, intended to put a figure-head of Jackson on the Constitution, and that a Bos ton carver, Laban S. Beecher, was at work npon it, excited deep feeling here, and it was openly declared that the endeared frigate should not go to sea with this image at her bows. Some idea of the excitement which prevailed over the affair may be had from the fact that the artist was offered large bribes to destroy the figure-head, and that ha barred his garret, which served him for a studio, against assault. Commodore Elliott. however, felt that it was not safe to leave the head in the carver's house and therefore had it removed by an armed boat's crew to the navy-yard. There it was placed in the engine-house, where Beecher finished it at his leisure. Jackson was represented in the Hermitage scene, holding in his hand a scroll with the motto, "The Union, it must be pre served." His image was fastened to the frigate's bow, bnt onthe 3d of July, 1884, it was found to be lacking the head, which had been sawed off, leaving only the body be hind. - . This daring aot was committed the night before wnue sentinels were working the ship's deck and while two seventy-four-gun ships were moored en each side of her. A violent thunder storm prevailed at the time, and this f avored tbe efforts of tne bold assailant, Captain Dewey, a Boston ship master. He had dropped down with the tide to the frig ate's moorings, and after fastening his boat had climbed stealthily up the chains and be gan his desperate undertaking. , As be had to cut through a copper bolt besides -sawing through the tough wood, he must have made considerable noise, and the sentry is said to have looked from the deck over the bow sev eral times, and the watchful operator then stopped working. At last the job was com pleted and Captain Dewey bore off tbe vie tim's head in a sack, dropped into his row- boat, and after reaching the shore went to a publio house, where he met some friends with whom be made merry over the success, He remained quiet till the excitement blew over. While this was at its height the peo ple or wneeiing, vs., celebrated bis act bv ringing bells, assembling in publio meeting ana passing laudatory isolations. The Con stitution went withoat a figure-head to New York, but another image of Jackson, firmly xastened oy a great copper bolt driven through the head, was placed at her bows. It was a reproduction of the old image, and the bast from which it was modeled is now at the Charles town navy-yard. Dr. Holmes' stirriag lines are said to have saved "Old Ironsides" from destruction after orders had been issued to break np the his toric Vraft. The old timbers were used to some extent as relics, a coach being built from them at Amherst as a New Year's pres ent to General Jackson from some of his New York friends. Canes made from the wood were presented by Commodore Hall to the President, Mr. Van Buren, and Mr. Pom sett at the time the ship was docked. If my memory serves me, tbe front door of the late Colonel Thomas H. Perkins' home in Temple Place, here in Boston, which is now occupied by the Provident Institntion for Savings, was constructed of the wood of the Constitution. Tbe City Troops Were the Toughest. From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "I noticed a few days ago an article in the Post-Dispatch concerning the mortality among the German members of the G. A. K.," said Capt. William T. Haskell, of Kit Carson post, of Washington, D. C, to a Fost-Dispateh reporter, . "'and was struck by the facts it presented, I have not hith erto paid any attention to this question, but since the matter has been called to my notice I recollect that the deaths among the German veterans of my acquaintance have been very frequent daring the last few years. Another point in regard to Grand Army mortality which I have studied with some care is the fact that the death-rate of those who origin ally came from the country far exceeds that of the city men. It is generally supposed that a country life is eonducive to health, but as far as the records of the War depart ment prove anything the contrary is' the ease. When in the Army of the Potomac I served in a regiment recruited in the city of New York. Stoddard's Vermont brigade was in onr division, and it was a remarkable fact that those stalwart mountaineers, men of large Bize and great muscular develop ment, were far more subject to disease than our city boys, and died like sheep in the Chickahominy swamps, while the death-rate among the city regiments was very low com paratively. Since the close of the war, and especially daring the last ten years, the sur vivors of the country regiments, at least in the East, for I know nothing of the West, show a much higher mortality than tbe me tropolitan troops, and sickness is muoh'more frequent. I have heard from French and German officers that the same state of affairs prevails in the armies of those countries, and from all these facts lam inclined to believe that the general impression that city life is unhealthy is entirely false." COMMUNISM OF THE ESKIHO. How the Liwi or Property Are Ob served by the Bwellers In High Lat itudes. From the Saturday Review. All the inhabitants of a winter station re ceived some share of the seals oaptnred. Anyone might fish and use the weirs made by others. Housemates, but not plaoe mates, were fed by the families best off for food at the moment. "Virtually the surplus of any idividual or community was made over to those who had less." But the prop erty essential to each'individaal was secured to him by a kind of supernatural sanction, resembling the tabu. Apparently a man with, say, three ooats was not supposed to have this protection extended to the third coat. If we suppose these rules suddenly brought into European civilization, it is plain that extensive idleness would be the first resnlt. Those who had nothing would use np the property of those that had some thing while it lasted. Among the Eskimo the community checked this partly by ex posing the idler to satirieal songs at the meetings of placemates. In places where, as in Danish West Greenland, European in fluence has been felt, the old communism flourishes, but the old customary obligations to work have weakened, and "the natural consequence has been impoverishment." Capital punishment is inflicted by the de cision of the community on witches and on individuals obviously dangerous to tne pub lic. Though the Eskimo are generally re garded chiefless, Dr. Bink in his new book says that each house or station nas its chief or patriarch. A punishment as severe as turning a man oat of his house in mid-winter has been noticed. There is another authority the'augakok a kind of brehon or author ized wizard and judge. All this condition of soeiety rests on the extreme dependence of man on man in . these very small and isolated communities. To be turned out of them wonld be nearly equiva lent to death, or, at least, to the condition of the Weendigo, the lonely ogre of Labra dor. Moreover, while the development and improvement of boats and harpoons is no ticed as you pass irom tne western to the eastern tribes, "the contrary may be said so far as regerds social organization." The conditions for accumulating individual prop erty are more favorable in the west, but there it is checked by habit of making pro fuse gifts. A well-to-do western Eskimo is like a rich Athenian of old. The gifts of tne lormer answer to tne "liturgsis" of tne latter. Position and influence are acquired by this gift-giving, and when position is once firmly secured we may doubt how long the giving will last. There is arising some thing like the Bystem of rank whiah prevails among the Indians 'farther south. The keeping of slaves, "of all habits the one apparently most at variance with Eskimo social life," is developed. Among the Ants, a neighboring Indian people, "tne person who gives away most property receives the greatest praise and in time acquires the highest rank," not hereditary, "obtainable by such means." In fact, his generosity resem bles that of a person engaged in "nursing a constituency." DON'T SCOLD .. a man for groaning when he has Eheumatism or Neuralgia. The pain is simply awful.
