Ttte New Profession.
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

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
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
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
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.
