Editor Shinn is to have a fat place at the Treasury. In about four years from now the appropriate thing will be to put Shinn in the soup. It appear* to be in accord with the eter nal fitness of things ’’ that the President should have chosen a Marshal for West Vir ginia from Marshall county. Mr. Thomas B. Coulter of Ohio is to suc ceed Mr. McConville, Sixth Auditor of the Treasury for the P. 0. Department. Not unlikely he will plow close to the corn.

A superfluous rcuiark iu view of daily re curring events. Democracy comes up -miling in Montana where, in late local elections, the democrats have carried Butt, lloxeroan. Helena ami Great Falls. This means two democratic Senators from the new Stale and one Rep resentative. _ _ Hon. C. F. Scott, of this State, wanted to be Appointment Clerk of the Interior De partment—a position adorned for nearly four years past l»y Capt J S.

President Harrison sav- West Virginia has the hungriest horde of republican office seekers of any State in the Union. That may be so. They have been without gov ernment rat:ons for about four year-, and such deprivation is a new experience to them. They arc as ravenous as the soldier who hasn’t bad “ anything to eat for three day?.”___ In bis letter of acceptance General Harri son said: “In appointment- of every grade and de partment fitne— and not party service, should be the essential and discriminating test, and fidelity and effi eney the only sure tenure of office Only the int*-r<-rs of the pub!: • service should suggest removals from office Heads of Department- may regard the last sentence sufficiently elastic for their purposes iu giving many a poor fellow the grand bounce.

Goff and other prominent* called at the State Department, where they pre.-euted the name- of J. II. Pipes, of the city of W'heeli; g. lor consul to Hong Kong, China; J. B Maxwell, ol Wheeling, for consul to Nagasaki, Japan; and Dr D. Mayer, of Charleston, for Minister to R<m mania. About that time we were roamin’ nround|dirough the corridors outlie National when a fine looking gentleman, who proba bly thought he observed we had a roamania look, approached aud addressed us as L>r. Mayer! We confess- we had a far-away cast of countenance—we were in search of a dem ocrat. i B .th the AVu* and Courier and the Atlanta j C'ustitution frown down the work ot M«j. , J„t. Stewart of Texas who is canvassing the North for aid in establishing a Confederate Home at Austin. The trend of opinion seems to be that the Southern States can each care for its own veterans in grey and that the parading of their necessities before northern people isan unnecessary humilia tion to which to expose these old soldiers and their fellow-citizens. The Southern States are. doubtless, able to take care of the vet eran-, but they haven’t done it-and the old soldiers are more touched by the ingrat ituih sometimes displayed than troubled by humiliating thought that brave and gener ous men in the North avail themselves of an opportunity to do them a service. The Southern people are paying many millions annually into the pension fund, but we have had no expression of disapprobation or hint at humiliation from the old fellows that wore the blue and arc now recipients of this uud. Nobody ever went from the South to the North and gushed more than Grady ot the Atlanta Constitution, yet it is nowhere chronicled that his stomach revolted at the good things upon which they feasted him. Let Maj. Stewart get all he can by honest presentation of a good cause tor the helpless Johnnies. During the war they didn't ‘ pa rade their necessities, exactly, but by pa id ga metimeaget their ueceatitiw ap peased. A Confederate veteran says he has seen 10,000 snow balls in the airatonce. It was at Guinea s Station near Fredericksburg, in the winter ot 1803. I he snow was u loot deep, and the snow balling commenced be tween company A, 2d Ga . who opened on tne Cherokee Brown Bifles, and it did not end until the whole of Lees army had taken a hand at it —L’rchange. i re w t- a creat snow-ba 1 buttle in the Confederate camp" on the Rappahannock nrar Orange Gourt House in the winter of 1S63-4 agrahic account of which we printed in The i'KEK Press a dozen years ago. In that conflict brigade was confronted by brigade and general officers commanded, and strategy and courage were as manifest in any of the real pitched battles of war— but there was no gore and no fatal results. \ N.w York Republican, whose services in all campaigns tor many years have been ,.t the most valuable character, said : “ This i- what we get for putting up a Bible reader ! tor President. We have now put three— i slaves, Garfield and Harrison. Next time 1 am for au avowed infidel.’’ That isn’t tatr. We haven't observed that President Harrison has obtruded religion much iuto i ... exeicise of c.v eutive power. We could almost throw a stone into the homes of a widow and of an orphan girl who have been deprived of p< stmaslerships tor political reason*—and strong men put in their places. Republicans have uo room to complain that the present administration is slow in re warding party service. H’Jko Is Your lirst Friend ? Your stomach of course.

Sept. 6,18*8. In ihis age of shams and adulterations it is a real pleasure to find so genuine a medicine for the teeth as the Dentifrice prepared and sold by tlie late I)r. Thomas Sclueffer, of Charles town, West Virginia. I have used it for the last two years, and have never found it to fail in effecting what it claims to do, viz: to cleanse the teeth, strengthen and invigorate the gums, and purify the breath, i have seen Dr.Scluef fer, who Was my dentist for several years, use it with marked success. To the repeated ap plications of it, by his advice, 1 owe the [•reser vation of two of my front teeth whic h, owing to diseased gums, were loose, and threatened to drop. In addition to my own testimony I could mention that of my friends who have u»ed, and have been equally benefited, by this excellent Dentifrice. Rev C. S. LINGAMFELTEIt. Charlestown, October, 1*88.

It gives me pleasure to testify to the reme dial effects of the Dentifrice. 1 have used it in my own family, and prescribed it for several of my patients, and have seen its effects on those on whom the Doctor had used it. I remain very truly. Ac., JOHN W. AYLER, M D. Charlestown, W. Va., Oct. 1888. I have used, with the best results, the Mouth and Tooth Wash prepared by the lale Dr. T. H.
