Thoy liavo bnon mado from various I motives and under varying conditions, and, I , on the theory that ghosts could manifest I thorns 'Ives at alt, dlffuiing In reasonable probibllltlea of fullllincnt; but all li.wo I I fulled iillke. I p Tho curiosity to know somothlnir of fu- I", turo existence Is tlio most ticmondous j that over animated tho human I'uco.

Tlio snmo agreement tins looii engaged In under tho emotion of Inli-nso lovo; husbands and wives, m ij or persons In othor relations or earnest and I It absoluto dovotton, have entered upon It at fj moments of extiomo solomnlty. It has been' I ft lecoided In venuofulncss, time and again, I as In Fuanziska Kurr'fl case But nothing HJD results. Neither friend nor foo comes back nc Hl cording to the bargain: neither a spousodls l consulate with lonely longing, nor a wretch HI fearful with a threatened visitation, has over HI Been the ghost of tho doparted. Tho object HI of Fbanziska Bupi''a hatrod, this Arnold, Hit whoever ho may be, can rest securo that HI I Vi Idle he lives he is out of hor reach. HJ1 In speculating upou tlio mystery of the H I Iieieifter It Is unnecessary to suppose that H I sp!rlt- full toobsorvo these promises becauso H I death has ended their existence, or becauso H I tho Divine purpose makes it impossible, l'or- H E haps thoy do 1't want to obsorvo thorn. It H D may bo that when they arrivo at tho splrlt- I K ual state that of mortality scorns so un- H appro tchnbly inferior that tho Idea of inter- H ! course with mortals proves too repugnant H it for Indulgence, and tho Idlo cuiioslty of hu- H manityastolheruture.ortlio pit-sumptuous H yearning for a longer comp mlonshlp tlmu H I was allotted, appears unwoi thy of grutlflcn- H I tlon. 1 ho impulses governing tho llfo to H Ij oomo cannot bo understood any more than H Ij tlio unseen world itsolf. Tho problem re- H mains as unknowable as it is awful. H Homo Kulcrs and Tories. I l There Is no doubt that the Tory Govern- B ment has of late been treated in a more con- I dilatory spirit by the Irish Nationalists, not HII only by tho small knot of Mr. Pakxelis H remaining followois, but also by tho much H larger body led by Sir. Justin McCarthy. Them was, indcod, a special reason for Mr. FarnelIi's chango of front. Bcpudiated by H tho Gladstonlans, ho had noresourco but to H seek a combination with their opponents. H Wo do not mean to oxplain on thU giound I his su;poit of the Irish Land bill, for ho H Ehowcd himself disposed to favor tint I moasuro lcforn tho(K'currencof tho quar H rel with tho mass of his former adherents. I J) Moreover.it is now manifest that tlio pi o I vlsloiRof tlio bill aro welcome to tho bulk H of tho Irish tenautry. Mr. Paiiskll's politi I cal inteiests will lead hun to mako moro I material eonces-ions; had it not boon for tho H Tory voters in tlio Unco recent by-elections, H the defeat of his candidates would havo been H Ij moio disastrous than It was, and similar H aid will bolndlspeusablo If ho is himself to H bo returned In thu next goneral contest. Wo I . may, therefore, take for gi anted thntwhen H I at the next session Mr. Balfour biings In H I his bill for tho local government of Ireland, I it will encounter very lenient criticism nt H I tho hands of Mr. Paiinhll, who has always H I maintained that Ireland should tnko all sho H can got, mid ns fast ns .she can get it, re H ecrlug, however, tho light to nsk for moie.

As u-gaids tlio HJ Irthcomiug bill fur tho local government of HI Irolaml, the newspaper oi grins of the Me H Carthvlies do not he.sltnto to nnnouuco an HJ Intention of elniii fully ;n copliug it, af liiihig HJ at lmst an Installment of wimt they believe HJ to be their eountiy's duo. HJ Thoy aro piob.ibly not wrong who sco In HJ' the temperate conduct and language of the HJ McCuithyltes npionf of tho overwhelming HJ Intlueuee of the Iribh hierarchy over tho H present leaders of tho Nationalist party, H The Irish episcopate and priesthood cannot H wish to inopn ably nllcuato tho Totles, be- H causj from them they hrfvo a char.co of H gaining a b on of tho utmost valuo In H Catholio eyos, but which tho Glad3tonInns H would be certain to refuse.

Dining t)0 H dlscu-slo.i of the education bill najv H pending it has beeoma clear that te H Gladi-toni'iiifl mo Irrevocably committed V H tho teotilui1.atiin of public Instruction. H That which they deny to English I'rot- H atouts thoy could not, of course, concede H - L- . . - to Irish Catholics. It has, therefore bocomo I questionable to tho Irish Catholic hierarchy whothornu alllancowlth tho Gladslonlniis olTorBsuch groat advantages as might bo obtainable throuirli an undcistiiudlng with tho Conservatives.

Mennwhllo, tho Torios aro In n position to offer, dining tho term of tho piosont Fnill'iiucnt, two very tempting concessions, namely, a bill proUdlng for maintaining nt tho publlo ox pi'nso school lot gano 1 and dliectod by tho Iilflh Catholio cleigy, and a ftutlier measure bestowing upon Irishmen nt least ns largo powers of regulating their local concerns ns nro possessed under recent legislation by Bngllshmen and Scotchmen.

TlioKngltsh Language In North America. InMlstoml. ns In this State, ludlcial ap proval is necessary to tho Incoipornlioii of cortiln kinds of associations and companies. A short time agon Judge in St. Louis re ferred tho application of n society which do sired toleeomo n corporation to Mr. 1). P. Dvntt, a well-known lawyer, to repot t his opinion upon tho mollis of tho appli cation nfter an examination of tlio fiuts; and tho lofereo has just leeommcnded that tao Coutt decline to grant tho rortlhcnto of Incorporation, o'l tho ground that tho namo of tlio society is Ger man, tho mcmbwhlp Is restricted to pjf pons who BLCak Geiman, and the constitu tion lequitcs nil its records to lie kept In tlio German language. Mr. Dvi.n Mvnids tho proposed organisation with disfavor, bo cause its purpose ,-oeins to bo " to band to gether a foreign element in tho State under tho forms cf law, and to require Unit their proceedings shall bo kept in a foreign lan guage." In Now Yoik, social clubs and bjuevo'ent societies composed of citizens of foreign , birth have beon treat od moio indulgently; 'nYld a very largo numbor of such n-socli-tlons havo been Incorporate 1 under oilier than English nnmos. Somo of the Judges very properly inbist in sueh cases that tho certificate of Incorporation bhiil contain a translation of tno corporate name into the English language; but we have nover li"ard of an instance wlieio an application for In corporation Ins boeu denlod in this State bocausoof a icqulromcnt tliat the piocced ingsof the sociotyor club should bj recoid od In a foreign tonguo. Some of our Gor mnn clubs certainly restrict tho proportion of nnn-German-spoaklng number-, who may 1)0 admitted; but this luct has never been deemed a valid objection to permitting them to becomo incorporated. Wherever an association desiring to bo in corporated in this ountry selects a nnmo which Is not English, nn Bnglh translation of thnt namo should Invniliibly be requited to bo set forth in its certificate of incorpora tion or charter, whatever may bo its form, for tin information of porsons who may hnvo dealings with the organization. We would not refuse to ineorpjinto a club or society, however, becauso its members, whilo participating in tho conduct or its affairs, prefer to speak nnd writo In their niothor tongue. It pleases them and it cannot, harm any ono else. Nothing can bo moio bifely prophesied than tho continually Increasing predominance of tho English language on tho North American continent. The Skunlinttnk Proposition. Tho Orango county mooting to consider tho proposed law granting tlio suffiage to tho widows of soldiers or tlio civil war, mid to nil self-supporting women, was held at Skunimunk Mountain last Saturday, nnd nn adjourned meotlng is to tako pi ico to-morrow afternoon. According to tho previous announcement, two representatives of the woman suffrage ngltatoiswereon hand to advocate the meas ure, thouch its piinciplo K really filial to the theory of their cause. If onlv solf-sup-porting women aio to be admitted to tlio suffrage, tlio infeionco lsth.it the rct of womon nro alteady and sullldeiitly icpre bonted In tlio voto of mon. It is on that principlo that tlio exclusion of women from tho sitffr.igo is defended. In voting for them selves men sny that thoy voto for women nlso; and if they voto for bomu women, they voto for all of them. If a man votes for Ids wifo whom ho btipports, ho otes nl-o for ills daughters w ho support themsohes. If the children need tlio ballot for themselves In dividually to protect their rights and to mako tho suffrngo really universal, tho mother icquiics it not lc-i. If thoy am not to he disqualified Irom voting because of their sex, neither niu-it sho be bhut out from it, el--o uiiiuliigonnil maternity uio put un der the poliliinl ban. If tho hitffiago lo to bo granted to tlio wid ows of eoldlets as a lewnrd for their hus bands' military borvieo, the lnfeicnco Is that it is not a piivllego to which women nro entitled of themsohes, but a favor con fencd be. nusu of something of prolit to tho State which not they but men have done. 'Ihobiiljeetlon of woman could not bo mado moio complete. The great st glory, the highest function, of wunmnho id leceivos no political iccognitlm. Women aio simply recognized as lioiis to the glory of their husbands. The ptupo&IUou is degrading, yet woman suffrage ugitilors ma'Jo it. Tlio admission of solf.supporting womon and tho disqunllllcation of wives nnd mothors supported by their hiiibauds would Invoho a like outrago on womnuliood. It is ciedltablo to a woman to support herself when sho has no husband to look out for hor, but she best sorvn the Stito us n mi tiou, and only tlius can bhu obey tlio inw of her being ami fullll her propvr fuuetion in society. Yet these woman suffrage agi tatois would glorify sphibterhii.jd and Btlg mntlze matemlty, for In mo-,t cases child bearing foibids self-support either wholly or durlug long periods. Moreover, what indication hive tho self supporting splii3tors gh en that thoy want the sufftagu ? We havo seen none, and it is Masouablo to supposo that they do not want political discrimination in favor of a eoiidl th n from which almost universally they do stro to escape. Thoy do not want tho voto. Thoy want to got married nnd to bo support ed by husbands, or, in other words, to for feit tlio privilege tho bill would confer on them. Thoy would ivsont any assumption that theyato luuoedof the ballot topio tect thcinsolvos beciuso thoy cannot get husbands to oto for thorn. They do not want to advcitise thoirsplintciliood by go ing to tho polls whilo women who aro in the state Into which they all deslio to got, aio driven away as disqualified. They do not i ( ... .... want to bo qualified. Thoy want to bo dis qualified. Practically, thorofore, tho moasuro would not operate to tho dlscouragomont of mnr tiiige, ngnlnst which it discriminates so plainly, for thero is not ono girl In a thou sand who would not gladly glvo up her voto to get married. Sho would part wlth.lt ns roadily as sho parts with hor family nnmoj Disqualification rather than quallllcntlon would confer on them tho distinction thoy prize nnd crave. Even tho confirmed old maids would tnko nu Invitation to tho polls as an Insult. It is of little Importance, nccordlngly.whnt Is tlio docUion of the Skunimunk mooting to inturow. No Leglslatuie would pirns tho propi s"d bill, nnd oven if It wcro made law, women would scout tho prlvllogn It granted. It is hard enough to Induco thorn to voto even where thoy havo tho suffrago on an equality with men, but If by voting they should justify tho implication that they aro forloin spinsters who cannot get men to suppoit them, the dlfUculty would bo In cut mounluble. Tlio Indictment of the Dully News. Tor tho high honor of prosecution under tho slntuto piohlbltlng tho publication of tho noivs about electrical executions, Dls tilet Attorney Nicoll has choson Col.

Ab to tlio selection of Col. Bill Bnowjj's newsiinper tor tho test of the constitutional ity of tho odious law, that Is perfectly biitis factoiy. Tho Daily -Vcich Is, in somo re i.pects, removed from the llvalries of New Yoik journalism, nnd tho DIsttict Attorney lias wis -ly avoided tho appoaranco of par tiality in conferring nn honor which any great newspaper In the town would have welcomed.

Tlio report of tho Kansas State Board of Agriculture for Juno Is a useful document for the enlightenment of students into tlio growth of that surprising mushroom, tho Farmers' Alliance of Kansas. It rove.il? without intention somo of tho causes of tho discontent which has sot tlio Sunllowor fniineis to icconstrucllng tlio multiplica tion table; nnd it bliows that In spito of many sporadic discouragements they nro going to havo good crops this year. June w.is far from bolng a pleas ant mouth In Kansas. For much of tho time it rained s-o hard tint corn could not bo cultivated, nnd in tho eastern part or the State wheat had to bo harvested with cradles, tlio ground being so soft ns to prevent tho uso of binders. Tho Hessian lly, the wheat-straw worm, nnd other disa greeable visitors called. Somo farmers lost their wheat crop by Hood, others by blight; and yet, ace lrding to thoBoird of Agriculture. " tho nggiogato wheat product of the St ito this year Is tho Iargost In her history, and, with tho exception of corn, every crop growing, including fruit, prom ises an extraordinary yield." Hero Is tho condition of tlio crops, comparod with tho fullaverago: Corn H2 pr cent. iTirao ftrfio. 103 pr cent oats OS per ceni.jl'ralrleiir.e8l07 percent. Bnrley in per cent. Sorkhmn &s per cent. Rye is per cent 'romtoes. us per cent. Iironm corn... Si) per cent Apple 87 per cent. Hnv miercent. l'eacbel Ht07perceut Miliot IU per cent.! Poor tanning is enumerated among tlio rcabons why tlio wheat crop, though lirge, is smaller than the conditions Indicated a month ago. The main cause of damage was the blight, which is supposed to bo duo to certain meteorological conditions. Tho Hessian lly can bo escaped by latj planting. According to a lep rt mado to the Board by Prof. Snow, tlio wheat-straw worm can I driven out by tho burning of stubble, io ta t Ion of crops, and the binning of surplus straw in tho sp-ing. Tlio conditions which produced tho blight havo not occurrod for many years before 1801, nnd, In tho opinion of tlio Hoard of Agricultute, are not likely toon to occur again. lleie we huo tho real oncmios of tho Kan sas fanners: the eliniato, tho Hessian fly, tho wheat-straw worm, nnd poor farming. Piobibly tho latter Is not very common. In any cas-, it will not bo remedied by the Ocala platform, nor will tlio Sub-Trensuiy plan ameliorate tlio climate or Induco tho wheat pests to leave tho Stato. It appears, too, that In spito of tlio insects nutl tho weather tho Kansas crops are going to bo laige. While tho Alliance man is cniling on tun Government to help him, the crops nro thiiving. lie needs lo smash tho wheathtraw worm and the Hessian lly boforo destioy lug the capitalists of the East. If thoweathor Is not satisfactory, lie should complain to tho officer In charge, tlio Hon. Jiuir.MiAil RfRK. With a year or two of good weather ami big ciop3, the Kan-as Allianco will forget it over Ininglned that its mombots could not mnlso a living without help from the United Slates Gooruinent. Marriage Kefoiiu Lows. A resent 'jcciirrenco in Ohio illustrates tho difficulties -in tho way of reforming our mnnlago laws by requiting a public cere mony in tho presence of u clergyman or publlo officer as nn Indispensable condition of entering Into tlio marital state. A teleginm fiom Canton tolls us that a number of nowly innirled eouplos at Upper hindiitky aio considerably excited over tho dN.'ovei v that the poison who assumed to act ns clergyman in nriliylug thorn vnt not n clergyman at nil. No wonder the poor tilings oio peiturbndlf It ba true, its tho despatch adds, Unit " this fact invalidates tho man iages occoi ding to Ohio law ," Such would not bo tho enso hero In New York. Tlio fact that tlio poison who per formed tho ceromony was not quullflod, would not prevent tho union of each couple from being a marriage, if tho tospectlvo parties used word? indicative of nn In tcntlou thou to becomo husbaud and wife, and those words were followed by cohabita tion. Their langnngo and acts would con stitute a non-cercmonlnl marriage, valid at common law, and ns binding upon tho par ties as nny form could mnko it. Under u systoin of jurisprudence which roci'gules such man lages, It Is of course very eiuy t cuter into wedlock without publicity. ThU voiy facility and beuocy have fiequontly given rUo to fal&o clulms of marriago, as, for example, where a woman appears after tho denth of some rich man ' who was always supposed to be a widower, MittMiiHHilliHIHHi and asks for a sharo nt his nstato on tho ground that sho was his wlfo by vlrtuo of a non-ccromonlnt mnirlage.
