I have learned the fastest dances, , And I've caught the baby stare, And I throw about my glances With the very n-jwest air, I'.ve been taught the Laugtry giggle, Which gives so much thlc to talk, And the Sarah Bernhardt wraggle, And the lady Lonrdale walk, Yes, I used to have a passion For old China and high art, But they're going out of fashion, For I've hau to change my part; For I think it w the duty Of a gill to keep ahead , Of the alyle, and be a beauty When the English once have led. Culture's well enough in Boston, But good matches there are few Oh. what dreary hours I lost on My attempt at beiug blue! I read all about old Brahma, And the Vedas, and Joe Cook, And I used to frighten Mama With the aweful views I toek. I nulled out my hair to hazy After Wbistlor'b oldest " tune " That pa said I mnst,be crazy, And would talk about the moon; I had such aweful bonnet, Out of something by Burne Jones, With a sunliower garlsuid on it, And a gown in " minor tones." Once I talked about old carviug, And wore hideous antique rings; And when I was nearly starving To the " society " flings In the velise, I posed sestbetic i,iUe calypso uuconsolcd Twas much worse thau ui emitic " What? You think that word to bold! Why, I go in for plain speaking, With a spicy touch of slang Its the stylo there's no more sneaking, 1 just smg out with a bang For its every true girls duy, And quite au Eugli-h way, To profess to be u beauty Not to mind what people say. I have learned the art of chaffing, All the men think it's so cute," And a way of loudly laughing That is just the thiug to suit, With a jaunty air ol pertness, Like a soubrette's ou the stage In London their alertness Makes our Yankee girls the rage. Yes my photos have been taken, They'll be solid at all the fa".rs, And tuy phiz has been mistaken For an actrest! But who cares? It's too awelully delightful! No .v, ready dear, " profess " . Drop yaui Kiodest air-it's frightful! And iou'Jl copy my success! Modern Political Campaign. The campaign that has just been closed has tried the ingenuity and skill of party leaders to the utmost, w.hile it has drawn heavy upon the patience and money of the peoulo. The work performed was enormous, and the amount Gi money expended stupendous. Presumally these efforts and this money were expended for the purpose of enlightening voters. and the greater part of work was done during the last six weeks of the campaign. In other words the people of the United States set apart six weeks in four years for the consideration of principals and administrations that are to control the destiny of the republic for four years. We speak advise dly when we say that only six weeks or thereabouts are given to the great duty alluded to. At I the nominal begining of this cam- ! puij.cn say July 1st the people. dvi not understand the political Bit tuition, expecting, of course, the people ofOhio, whose inter est in politics ist perennial. The political history of the last twenty years was almost wholly unknown to the mass of young meu who cast their first vote at the last election, while the leading politi cal events of the last four or Ave years were not familiarly remem bered by the average voter. In telligent management then re quired a systematic effort sud denly to impart a vast amount of knowledge that ought to have been already in pessession of voters. A3 a matter of course, this work of instruction, so limit ed as to time, must be badly done, and passion and fraud have under such circumstances, an equal chance with honest teach ing. The careful publicist has not great advantage in such a campaign over me scounureis who force records and the cor- ruptionists who undermine all intelligence. ' All these evils were felt durine the late campaign, and the Ite publicans cannot safely endure many more like it. Some method must be devised to keep the peo ple constantly interested in pub lie affairs, or we will hereafter be wholly at the mercy of unscrupul ous adventurers in politics. We shall allude to this subject again, and in the meantime we call upon every entelligent and pa triotic citizen to give the matter his especial attention A grave evil threatens the republic, and a remedy must be found. S. F Post. The Fury Of The Lake Gale. From the Detroit Free Press. Do you know what is to be at scst with a gale blowing eighty miles an hour? You may read ot the wrecks which to-day strew the shores of every lake; you may read of the rigid bodies cast upon the sands, you may cast your eyes overhulk and spar and bat tered plank, but yet you cannot ealize the fury of that aweful gale of Saturday. Vessels on Lake Michigan were bowling along before a topssul breeze when, almost in a moment, the gale came howling down from another quarter, bringing a ter rible sea with it. Sails were split into ribbons before a rope could be loosened, and masts were over board like broken sticks. JNo man living ever saw such waves on our lakes before. loan hour af ter the gale set in they were run ning twenty five foot high. In three hours they could go no higher. Off Frankfort they were fully forty feet high, and they ran at about the speed of a race horse. The g'alo caught them as they reared up, and tons of foamy water were broken off and hurled down into the through to mingle with the base of the next waves One of the largest propellers on the lakes, standing twenty feet out of the water, had to put about before the gale was an hour old and even while running before it at fall speed the waves swept over her entire decks, Seaman- Mhin a vailed but little. Schoon ers were almost picked up bodily by the wiud and flung ahead, and the biggest barks were knocked about like chips. When day broked Saturday morning those out at sea must have realized the wrath, of death, Every plunge of an ordinary schooner rolled floods of water over the decks, to pour from the scuppers at an angle of forty 'five degrees. Men had all they could do to save life, without moving a finger tovard navigating their crafts. The loudest shout could not heard two feet away, and the roar of the sea was awful to hear. The passengers on the ,lAlpena" were roused from sleep the gale reached her. It brought such a sea that no one could have slept longer. When the four-score souls on board were told that death was near, they looked out on the howling, roaring, hungry sea, without a shadow of hope that one of them would ever see land again. Rafts and boats would have blown about like .eathers. Life preservers buoyed up corp ses until they were blown ashoro to be identified. Those who put ,them on injhe final grasp for life could not have lived an hour in the keen wind and icy water. Men who lived out on the gale still speak of It with terror. Only o ice again with the gaUs of death onen wider to them. Spars and hulks are beating to splinters on the rocky shores, and beaten uis figured corpses are thrown upon the sandy beach, to be wept .over and buried. It was the wrath of death turned loose upon the wide wastes, and that a single vessel escaped destruction seems almost a miracle. A New Party Proposed. We learn from the San Francif- co Stock Report that there is a movement on fool in that city to organize there an an "American party." The proposition has been discussed privately, it says, and the plans of the principal movers are fully arranged. The subject has beeu under discussion for some time, but nothing was pub licly said about it until after the election. We know that many persons in the metropolis have been casually consulting on the propriety of trying to create an American party, but in conver sation with them we discovered that no two of them agreed upon the basis. This talk is but a sam ple of the times. Ben. Bill wants a new party aUo. This desire shows the activity of the age. This difference of opinion is proi gress. One of the most interesting and affecting incidents of election night relates how at half past nine o'clock "General Hancock retired to bed, leaving orders that he should not be awakened on account of any news dispatches that might be received," While tLe weary Achilles slumbered in his tent the faithful Patroclus (which his modern name is Gen eral Mitchell) was on the watch, and it is quite touching to hear him " repeating at a late hour that he had received no dis patches which iequired the General's immediate attention." Immediate is really good. He no doubt felt that, as with the hero of that historical dabate on the Stanislaus river, " the sabsa quent proceedings interested him no more. British Columbia is in a humil iting position truly. It is a de pendency of a dependency. It bar tered its political- autonomy for a railroad, and has not got payment hence the present popular agita tion in the province, and an ex pression of opinion, at a recent meeting ip. Victoria, that the country would be better off as a crown colony than attached to the Dominion. This is ii very humil iating confession for men of An- glo-Sexon blood to make, after having enjoy the right of repre sentative government. It is nol without some show of reason, how-ever. If British Columbia were a crown colony its ruler would directly responsible to the Colonial Secretary in Downii g street, and the home governmei t would protect its interests; but it jsnow nominally a provience of the Dominion, which is not a na tion, and laks the power as well as the right to take the initiative in mater involving soverngnty. As a Territory of the Union the condition of British Columbia would be infinitely better than it can possible be as a tail to the Dominion kite, prostrated by the tatiffand impoverished by the public debt of Canada. The is land colony of Newfoundland h 8 preserved its independenc and prosperity, and rejected every overture from the home govern ment to join the Dominion. ' The Morey Letter The parlies who were mixed up in the publication of the Morey forgery are finding themselves in a tight place. The truth is com ing out in spite of Barnum and his associates. It is but a recap itulation of the old adage, " Digg ing a pit for others aud then fall ing into it themselves." They are tolerably well conered already. But the appearances are that the investigation will be kept up un til the whole business is traced to where the conception of the infamy started. It is a nice epilogue to the Democratic Defeat. The inauguration of General Garfield promises to exceed in some features any similar event in this city. Even now enquires are coming in from all sections as to accommodations for organized bodies. Among them are the Tenth Brigade of National Guards of Pensylvania. The new Nation al Mussum building in the Smith sonian grounds has been secured for the inangural. It is the in tention of the Committee of Ar rangements to ask Congress for 1,000 hospilal tents to be placed in the Washington Monument grounds for accomodation of vis iting military organizations. These will quarter ten thousand meu. Never Turned His Coat. General Grant accidentlaly put on the overeat of another inau forhisoWn at the great Utica meeting; whereupon the crowd heauily. SenalorConkhng, wtjo, was speaking at the time, at once said: "No harm in your laughing at that, gentlemen, tie m.y sometimes get the wrong coat n but vou mav be perfectly sure he ! will never turn his coat," The ...?: L..rtfMtr Hlti. umlrwl.
