A drl'xkakii never gets so badly cared by the deliriuai tremens that it takes his breath away. After an abnormal show of activity, the veuate has lapsed aaia into its old habit of do.n nolUin;. If there is a tate iustitution that isn't affected by Popuust ruaiadeninistration and rottenness, it behooves them to bring it forth. The nomination of Jsrry Simpson at Ilutchiusou yesterday, deatroya Mrs. Lease's last hope for tlxe next two years ut least. The origin of the big tire at Washing ton is said to be unknown, lias anybody been watching Secretary Osboru'a move ment lately? There seems to be jfood reason to be lieve that certaia pertous at the peni tentiary occupy a wrong position in reference to the burs. Mr. Gorman's expression "the truth must be told," is iu no danger of bein, credited to the senators who were before tha sugar investiAtin committee. If the corruption instate institutions is such, as to alarm the Popul.st olUci.ils there is no tolling what depth of cor ruption there are yet to be discovered. The brazen effrontery of using the state's property as headquarters for the central committee is th-i crowning act of a party disiinjjuisiied fur its impudence. It is fortunate that tha man who atoned Pullman liouie, was eaj tared before he liad ii chance to do anything worse. Cranks of that kind caunjt be too quick ly apprehend?'! IiErcBt.tCAM conventions were held in three states yejteniy, Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin. This is laying it on pret'y thick, but Republicanism is something the country can j ust now stand u good deal of. Jcdoe Trcvbcll may or miy not be right as to there being n necessity now of arbitration of the Pjllman strike, but lis refusal of a job from the government la a kind of a thing that grows rarer every day.

Why call it a Dem ocratic caucus? A Letter Dime would be a conference of the lrleiiis of the sugar trust and divers other monopolies to which they ars grateful. Tub prayer of the preacher at the Iowa Republican' eta'.e convention that tho Democratic party be forever re strained from the exercise of jjorern raental authority by the divine ruler, was supererogatory. The Damocrats them selves have arranged it so that divine Interference will be w holly unnecessary. Ta WhlB rton, I. C, aarl Return.

In Cue or Trouble Ten Thousand Would Bo Seeded ttt (ioard Government Property. The National Guard General ScbcUeiU, the Couiuiautllnjg; Officer. There has been much talk cf late about the regular army of the United States and the national guard of the sev eral states. Tiie army is a lit! ie one, but, as the people believe, a good ona It numbers all told, including eiiKiteers, recruiting parties, hospital service, etc., less than 80, 000 men. There are 10 cavalry regiments with 4Z2 officer-- and 6,050 men, flvo artillery regiments with 260 officers and 3,675 men, 25 inf antry regiments with 877 officers find 1-3,125 men, engineer battalion, hosjiital serv ice, Indian scouts, West Point cudet3, signal corps and general service, in which there are 567 officers and 4, 143 men, a total of 29,148. Of this toral about. 20, 000 may properly be spoken of as fight ing men. but this does not mean that tha entire 20,000 could be put into the field in case of anen ert'eu y requiring active service, for it would require 10,010 laen to guard tho government's buih'.ings, arsenals, forts, etc., removed from the scene of troubhs. Of course the national f?uard, which ia declared by General Howard, who has charge of the forces at Governor' a island in New York harbor, to be a most efficient and well drilled body cf men, could bo called upon and ia any MAJOH OHNERAL J. M SCHOF1EI D. emergency savo a labor crisis could ba depended upon to a man. The national guard numbers 119,796, to be exact, cr an availabla force of about 100,000. In case of serious conflict with organized labor it is not likely, in view of the de velopments cf the past few weeks, that righting orders would be universally obeyed by the citizen soldiers. Just how great a defection would ensue in such a case cannot be even estimated, of course. Major General John M. Schof.rlct, senior find commanding officer cf tha army, is stationed at Washington. He is amanof middle height, inclined to be stout and with white hair which is be. ginning to be thin at the top of his head. His eyes aro light blue iu color and deep set. He wears side whiskers and mustache, and his head is well formed and well set on a pair of good, tturdy shoulders. General Schofiold i3 a native of Chau tauqua county, N. Y., and was born in 1831. His father was a farmer, and the family removed from tho Empire State to Bristol, Ills., while the future gen eral was yet little more than a babe. Be fore tho lad had passed his teens a sec ond move wa? made, this time to Free. port. From this town the lad entered West Point in 1S4S, graduating five years later. lie was at once asig aed to Bort Moultrie and a little later to herv ico in Florida. Between 1S53 aud the breaking ot;t of the civil war Lo w:is assigned much of the time to teaching service i:i Went Point and Washington university, St. Louis. When Sumter was fired upon iu 1SC1, he was acting as mustering officer for Missomi, and he entered the contest as major of tho First Missouri volunteers. His fi.-jlitim? qualities were quickly developed, and by rea-.cn of special bravery he was very shortly mat'o cap tain of the First artillery, by STov. 21, 1801, he had lissn to the rank of briga dier general of volunteers and of the Missouri militia. In November, 1S02, he was appointed major general cf vol unteers. His rise to his present rank followed by similar stages, and his pro motions were won by gallant services in the Army of the Cumberland and during tho invasion of Geoigia. Ho took part in the buttles of Resaea, Dallas, Keue saw Mountain and Kulp's Farm. After tho capture o Atlanta, he was placed, under Thomas, in charge of the forces that opposed Hood in his advance to ward Nashville. At this time General Schofield was directly fighting an old classmate, for Hood was in the same West Point class as his Federal adver sary. Then Schof eld was made commander of tho department of North Carolina, where he had a hand in the capture of Fort Anderson ai.d of Wilmington. He joined Sherman at Coldboro on March 22, 18C5, and was in at the surrender of Johnston at Durham Station, Airil 6, and executed the military convention cf that capitulation. When the war was over, he was do tailed for European service till Aug. 16, 18C6, 'and then commanded the depart ment of the Potomac until March, 1S07. During the Belknap imbroglio, frcra May 28, 1868, to March 11, 1SC9, he served as secretary of war. He was the a made a major general of the regular army by President Grant. Iu 1 S76 he took cliargo of the West Point academy; in 1SS1 he was assigned to the division of the Missouri- When Hancock died, he was placed in charge of the division of the Atlantic. The first Mrs. Schcfield died some years ago, and in 1 SO 1 the general married Miss Georgia Kilbourne, a, young lady who was ix great friend of his daughter. Ho will shortly be retired because of age, and this is greatly re gretted all around.. JUDGE PETER S. GROSSCUP. Be Baa Presided at Many Iiuportaat Triala In CHicag:o. The trial of Assassin Prendergast and the recent strike iu Chicago brought into considerable prominence the nama of Peter S. Gross cup, judge of the United States district court of the northern dis trict of Illinois. Judge Grosscup was ona cf the last of President Harrison's ap pointees and had tho almost unani mous support of the Chicago bar, regardless of pol PETER S. itics, when the candidates for Judge Blodgett's vacant chair were being con sidered in Washington. Peter Stenger Grosscup was born ia Ashland, O. , 42 years ago. His ances tors came to America, when the colonies Were still undsr the British flag, and tho first Paul Grosscup represented Berks county. Pa., in the colonial aar seinbly and after the Revolution was a member of the Pennsylvania state legis lature and the constitutional conven tion. Early in the present century Judge Gro.sseup's ancestors moved to Ohio. He was educated in the Ashiand common schools and attended Witten berg college at Springfield, O. Attracted to the legal profession, ha was graduated fiom the Boston law school in lfe74 and began the practice of his profi s-uou in Ashland. About thi3 time he took a hand in politics, and, al though only 24 years of age, was nomi nated for congress by the Republicans, but could not poll enough votes to get to Washington. He won considerable fame as an orator in 1878 by nominat ing William McKiuley for congress in an eloq'aent speech. In IbyJMr. Grosscup removed to Chi cago and formed a partnership with Leonard Swctt. Ho soon made a reputa tion a3 a brai;;y. hardworking, erudite lawyer and argued many important eas-is before the United States supreme co art. One of Judge Grossenp's best known decisions was in a famous interstate commerce case. Certain shippers and freight agents accused of combining to secretly lower railway tariffs were brought before him. When questioned, they refused to answer on the ground that under the constitution they could not be compelled to give self incriminat- 1 ir:g testimony. Judge Grosscup ruled j that their po-ition was well taken and refused to compel them to answer. The decision practically nullified the law. CAPTAIN KING, THE NOVELIST. now the Indian l ighter's Life Was Saved by a lirave lrihli Sergeant. Captain Charles King, the famous novelist whose held is American regular army life, has beeu in his day aa mighty with the sword as he is at present with the pen. Ho was born in Albany 50 years ago and was descended from Eufus King, the well known statesman of the Revolution. He was educated at Colum bia college, New York city, and then went to West Point, where he was grad uated in June, 1866. He was a drummer boy in tho war of the rebellion, and 14 years of Indian fighting on the frontier have given him many interesting ex ptriences to draw from. He entered the service as an artillery man, but was afterward transferred to tho cavalry and was promoted to a cap taincy. One of the most thrilling inci dents of his career occurred during the Apache campaign in Arizona in 1874. King, who was then a lieutenant in the Fifth cavalry, wa.s sent to "pursue and punish" a band of hostile Apaches who had driven off a herd of stock. In King's company w.is an Irili sergeant named Bernard Taylor. After a hard campaign of several days the party divided tem porarily, ami King, Taylor and 15 friend ly Apacho - Yuma scouts soon found themselves among the hostiles. The friendly Indians at once decamped, leav- - - IK ' CAPTAIN CHARLES KIXO. ing King and Taylor to their fate. The two white men became separated, and King was struck by an arrow in the outer corner of tho left eye. He jumped behind a rock amid a rain of bullets and arrows, his carbine sought his shoulder, and an Apache dropped dead as tha flash came. An instant later a bullet pierced his right arm, disabling him. lie ran, followed by the yelling redskins, but tripped on a clinging vine and fell nearly senseless. Tay lor came to his rescue, picked him up in his arms and retreated dowu the hill, pausing now and then to shoot cne of the pur suing savages. King impdored, even or dered, Tayior to leave him to his fate, but the gallant Irishman refused to do so, and just as the Indians were closing upon them the other party of troops came up and saved their lives. For his heroism Taylor received the army medal of honor. Captain King's wounds forced him to retire in 1879, and he began writing novels, as he says, because he wasn't long in finding out that keeping a fam ily on retired captain's pay i "a beg gar's business.' .

Oliver Mowat may quite reason ably end appropriately be galled the Grand Old Man of Ontario. He has been premier of the province for 23 years, aud the elections a few weeks ago insured his rnlo for another fur years, provided his life is spared. Like Glad stone, he i a Liberal. Like Gladstone, he is an old man. Like Gladstone, ho has ruled many years and given an hon est and brilliant administration, and, unlike Gladstone, he is fctill in the har ness. His great record is unsurpassed in the entire history of British purlia ruiiutary government. Mr. Mowat was 53 years of nga when he first became premier of Ontario. He is 74 years old now, and despite his long and arduous labors for good gov ernment he is still a very active man to day. I4ke tho Gladstone of a few years HON OLIVER MOWAT. ago, ho srenis to thrive upon hard work. Early and late ho is at Lis post in tho house. Ho is the leader cf his party there, and nothing escapes him. His speeches are short, but straight to the point. During Lis long rule his strength and popularity have never been impair ed, and today, in the seventy-fourth year of his ago and the twenty-third year of his reign as premier, he stands forth with a rn-ord unsurpassed in tho history of Canadian statesmen for tho number and brilliancy of his achieve xnents, the purity of his private life, tho incorruptibility of his official career, the souudnoss f his Liberalism, the steady consistency of his entire political career and thij marvelous success with which he has dtieated what the Toronto Globe calls "the most ingenious and desperate devices that bigotry and boo dle could promote." Mr. Mowat has built up the schools of the province, regulated the liquor traffic with rar success, given Ontario manhood suffrage and by wi.se legisla tion wonderfully increased its prosper ity. The friends of the Liberal party believe ilowat's great success recently augurs well for victory and a change of government in the coming general elec tion of the Dominion of Canada. ! CARNOT'S SUCCESSOR. The Anart-hlKts Have Ko Friend In Presi dent C'asimlr-Perler. If an honest man is the noblest work cf God, France is to be congratulated upon the election of M. Casimir-Perier as president of the republic Since the Panama scandal ruined so many reputa tions honest men seem raro in French public life, but President Casimir-Perier is one of the few that remain. He ia also industrious, brainy and courageous and come? of one of the best families in France. One of lis ancestors founded the Bank of France. His grandfather was premier under Louis Philippe, and Lis father was a well known deputy and & member cf the cabinet cf M. Thiers. President Casimir-Perier was born 46 years ago, and when hardly out of his teens won the decoration of the Legion of Honor during the siege of Paris. Xe was admitted to the bar later and was elected to tho chamber of deputies to represent Nogent-sur-Seine. This was nearly a quarter of a century ago, and he has been prominent in tho chamber ever since. In 181)0 he was elected vice prebiCent of tho . chamber and laat No- TKESIDEXT CASIMIR-PEniErt. vember became its president. Two weeks after this great honor President Carnot ! named him aa premier of France, an of fice he held about five months. He has lonj; been considered President Carnot's successor, and the hand of As sassin Santo merely hastened the time when he was to become chief executive of France. Heveral years ago the Count of Paris off-red him the chancellorship of France if he would aid in the restora tion of a monarchy, but he Boomed the bribe. The socialists also wished to overturn Caxuot and make him presi dent, but he frowned upon the scheme and apprised Carnot of the socialists' plans. He is short and dark and has keen eyes and an expression that denotes firra iiena and decision. He is aa bitter a foe of anarchists as was M. Carnot. to h. -;t. J - s"'" ' st".J j NOT BUNKO MEN.

While waiting at the station for ths s'gnalto board their special e ir Ma Mahon observed a man whom he thought he recognized as an acquain tance, and. beingf of a social turn, ap proached him and shook hands co iially, saying: "How do you do, Mr. " "Bradford," obligingly interjected the stranger. "Of New York, if I remember?" continued McMahon affably. "No, of Bryn Mavvr," responded the stranger. "Ah, yes Bryn Mawr. I had for-g-otten. Glad to sea you. When did you get to town?" Just then Stoeum enme up. He had caught the name and recollected a Bradford who had served in his com mand during the war. -'Why, hello:" he exclaimed with effusion. "De lighted to see you. My name is 61o cnm. You're Bradford of Bryn Mawr. Knew you well during the war. It isn't possible vpu have forgotten me?" Bradford, meanwhile, had edged toward a policeman in the depot. "I can't say, Mr. Slocuru, that I remem ber yoa or your friend," sai 1 he, "and I don't propose to join you in any kind of a game this morning. The fact is. I knew you both to bi confidence op erators from the first moment I saw you." The policaraan, who had evidently caught, on, ma le a grab for the two generals, who made a simultaneous rush for tha special car. It was jut about moving off. As they scrambled on board the policeman dashed for the telegraph office, but the car ma le no stop within tha jurisdiction of the Philadelphia police and the fugitives escaped. A QUEER CATCH. XI Cast a I It in Hooked a lied Squirrel. Ex-Judge F. J. Fitch returned to his home in Prattsville, X. Y., from his two weeks' fishing trip on the Neversink in Sullivan county, a. few davs ago. In answer to a question, "What success in fishing?" lie replied: "Poor, in consequence of the cold weather and excessive rains. I caught but 121 trout aud one red squirrel." Other questions led to the state ment by him that, while casting his flies at the end of about forty feet of line, he saw a squirrel swimming across the stream, and, from Cue im pulse of the moment, raadi a cast for itand drovo the hook of the trail fly through one of its fore legs. As it was impossible to reel In the game and take it from the hook without b3 ing bitten, he was compelled, much to bis regret, to drown it. i lie has its tail in corroboration of a queer fish story and evidence of his accuracy in ily cast'ng. He also stated that this was the fiftieth con secutive year in which he had fished for tout, and that his scores of all those years, beginning with July, 1S-15, showed that he had ciught in the aggregate SIS, 473 trout. He added that all, save in the first five years, had been caught with a fly. Flavored With Cologne. It is no secret that the French culinary expert employs eau do cologne to produce with other essen ces that subtile, mysterious, but de licious flavor often ta de 1 in fruit salads and other cookery confections. In the genuine cologne there is a compressed extract of rosemary and lemon thvme. Here is a real French dessert: 1'u in a salad bowl a layer of chopped Ice well powdsre 1 with sugar, and up in this a layer of bananas; again a handful of chopped ice and sugar and after this bananas, repeat ing till the bowl is as full as re quired. Pour up. in the fruit a wini glas of white wine and one of wa'er, in which you have dipped a 1 i .i of sugar that has absorbed thre j tr.ms of almond essence, and anot'i." iat has absorbed three drops of genuine eau de cologne. "Has the Ifypoerlte Come?" A Worcester deacon s nt to repre sent his church at the recent Congre gational conference at Pittsfield, in presenting the report of his duties at the mid-week prayer-meeting of the church recently, told a very amusing story of childish confusion of terms. A little PittsSeld girl had evidently been greatly impressed by the prepa rations at her home for the enter ta nment of the delegate. She was earnestly watching, in common with the others of the family, for his ar rival, and finally broke out with tha question: "Hasn't the hypocrite come yet?" The family told the story to the delegate. He knows a good thing when he hears it, and he repeated it to his church. Where Will It End?
