The KuillotiniaK of Houy, for the murder
of an old lady and her maid, is very
graphically described in a special cable dia
patch to some of our cotemporaries. The
man was a criminal by descent, and crime
had been his profession. The correspond
ent enters the cell with M. Diebler, "JVj>
rcnteurdr* Itaulr* wuvres," and hears that
talente<l functionary remark, "/ib'iy, nous
aeons rem unr triste uourellHouy, as
forgetful as M. Diebler that he is talking
for English consumption, shrugs his
shoulders a la Francois, and replies, "ah,
rest pour <'c matin, eh Oinn"?in other words
?"llaug your sad news! The job is on
for this morning, is it?well, go ahead with
your rat killing."
The good Abbe Chorbet oifered consola
tion, hut Houy wouldn't be consoled?he
pushed the good Abbe aside and fell to let*
ter-writing. To his brother he bequeathed
.a most difficult task. The brother was to
gather together all his effects, including
eight francs tied up in a stocking, "and
make a present of them to the first really
poor man" he met. The first really poor
man might have been riding behind a
liveried coachman, or pushing a hand cart
or gathering rags. It is hard to tell who
are the "really poor." Perhaps Houy had
a grudge gainst his brother and chose this
way to have satisfaction out. of bim.
Arrived at the guillotine M. Diebler's
line work began. ''Stepping in front of
the condemned man, he seized his gray,
bushy hair in both hands and pulled with
all his streugth jo compel the prisoner to
advance his head under the.ax." It is
oasy to believe that there was "a moment
of breathless hesitation." It was only a
moment The accomplished M. Diebler
pressed a button here, a button there,
Houy's head fell into the bucket, his body
into the basket, and that was the end of it
The guillotine is associated with so many
atrocious beheadings, mere wauton butch*
cries, that it would not be tolerated in this
country. Yet it is a surer, a cleaner and
more genteel way of taking life than with
the rope, which often misses fire.
The French executioner has sufticienl
opportunity to become proficient in hii
work; and bo it is with the English hang
man. The American hangman's name i<
legion. He is changing, going into ofUw
and out of office. He is rarely anything
hut a novice, and generally a bungler. The
hangman's bad work had done and con
tinues to do a great deal to sharpen public
sentiment against the gallows and, sincf
wo contemplate no substitute for the gal
lows, against capital punishment. In some
Cities the surplus dog is kindly and effect
ually asphyxiated, a speedy and painlea
death, lacking all the heroic element whicli
draws crowds to the hanging.
, Since the aim of. capital punishment if
not torture we might with great credit tc
our humanity adopt some such plan to gel
rid of men condemned to death. In time
we may find it possible and profitable to
assign the public executioner to some less

Mr. Reagan, of Texas, Postmaster Gen
eral under the Confederacy, of recent years
a sort of rude classic on the Democratic
side of the House, and father of the Reagan
interstate commerce bill, has been airing
himself on his party and its platforms. He
- thinks that the politicians and newspapers
of his party are trying to hide from them
selves and the country the fact that there
are issues pressing for solution.
With the Ohio Democratic platform
before him Mr. Reagan remarks that "the
recent declarations of the Democracy pre
sent a set of resolutions that may mean
anything or nothing." What, could be
truer ? This is the first thought that struck
everybody on reading that marvelous tariff
plank in the Ohio Drmocratic platform?
the furthest removo from a declaration of
principles, merely a contrivance to catch
votes. Commenting on Mr. Reagan's strik
ing utterances the Chicago Tribune says:
The last thing in the world which the Dem
ocratic party wan's is isiues There ia not
an issue of any sort before the country whioh
i t darea to face tquarely. 11 doean't want issues.
11 doesn't want sentiments. It doem't want
anything but olUses, and for every office
tbera are about as many candidates aa there
are Deuiocrata.Hence there can bo no unanim
ity aruonp them. Assoon as an iwue cornus
up they dodge it and sqairm in every direc
tion so'as to avoid it, or, as Mr. Kesgan very
truthfnliy expresses it. they "present a set oi
resolutions tbat may in an anything or noth
ing." Spoila-hunteiB don't want principles.
Wuen Mr. Reagan comee tj realize this in his
far-iway corner, where no one is looking for
apolia becaus) it i* u elaaa, he may not be ao
thoroughly diacoura^ed. At 1 att he will
caase to wonder, and ha will come to regard
liia present longing for principlea as futile
and as Billy ai the crying of a child for the

The remains of Pittsburgh's Exposition
building are still smoking, but Pittsburgh
is already talking about erecting in its
place something handsome that shall serve
for a permanent exhibition. The thought
is very creditable to tho quick-witted enter
prise of Pittsburgh. Wheeling will be
glad to Bee it take form and grow into a
great museum of industrial art.
The larger city of Philadelphia, tilled with
enthusiasm over the brilliant success oUhe
Centennial Exhibition, tried a permanent
exhibition and ingloriously failed. A per
manent exhibition requires a permanent
interest to keep up a stream of sight-seers
and admission fees, for certain expenses
are also permanent. But from Philadel*
phia's failure it does not follow that go*
head Pittsburgh can not succeed. Pitts
burgh und Allegheny are rich in money
and in the exhibits to make an attractive
In the face of the calamity which swept
away the Exposition building and all that

Messrs. Stanton & Davenport, Wheeling,

Lippincott & Co., Philadelphia:
"Young Folks' Whys and Wherefores"
is a profusely illustrated juvenile of mora
than ordinary attractions. In a very aim
pie and entertaining way it teaches the
why and whereforeof common pjace things
which children hear and see without com
prehending. It ia familiar scienio in
pleasing stqry form?an adaptation from
the French. The binding is gay ^ith
illuminations of red and gold.
"Our Young Folks' Plutarch" will fasci
nate any hoy or girl with a taste for heroic
history or mythology. Founded, of course,
on Plutarch's "Lives" it ia condensed and
accommodated to the youthful understand

and maps which will be found useful in
locating the stirring scenes described in
the text. The style is ?aay and clear*
"Banned and Bleased," after the Ger

Gladstone never will be a duke, it is said
by his friends, in emphatic denial of the
rumor that he was to go the House of
Lords with that title. The great common

its claims too often to strengthen them by
becoming one of them.
Mine. Christine Nilsson was a passenger
by the Gallia, that reached New York
Wednesday. "Glad?" she said; "I cannot
express how gjad I feel at getting backjonce
more. I regard America in the light of
home, where I have had many, many plea
sures and but few regrets."
Ex-Minister Bigelow was asked by a re
porter in Chicago the other day: "Do you
think there ia any prospect of Mr. Tilden
being a candidate?'' "Not the slightest."
replied Mr. Bigelow. "He told me not six

child in the United States would sign a
petition asking him to run he would re
Mr. Edward Payson Weston, "the father
of long-distance pedestrianism," is about
to undertake a remarkable feat in connec
tion with the work of the Church of Eng
land Temperance Society, with which he is
prominently connected. He proposes to
travel over the highways of England and
Wales, on foot and in ordinary costume,
50 miles daily for 100 consecutive days,
Sunday excepted. He will travel only dur
ing the day time, and lecture each evening
on "Tea versus Beer."
It is said that $5,000,000 have been in

A young man advertises in a San Fran
cIbco paper for a position. He says that
bis capabilities "are not confined to jour

A large three-story brick dwelling house
in New Haven, Conn., is to be moved

When the Prince of Wales made the tour
of this country he attended a ball at Cin
cinnati, and was assigned to dance the first
set with Miss Mary Whistler, a noted belle.
The young lady, however, refused the
honor, saying she would dance with any
gentleman who requested her properly,.
ut she would be assigned to no one.
An eloping couplo from Dutch Kills,
Long Island, supposed the parents of the
girl were in ignorance of their hiding
place. They were greatly surprised, there
fore, when one day about a week after
their marriage the old gentleman walked
into their new abode and made them a
present of $2,000, with which to begin life
in good style.
Boston is reminded by the London
Times that she is not the only city to sulTer
a downfall from intellecluul supremacy.
Edinburgh has been deposed from a rank
more exalted. Weimer has sunk to be a
petty residence town, Geneva has gone
into trade and politics, Florence is no
longer a literary center, and Oxford and
Cambridge retain no dictatorship in letters.
They say that Carlyle's ghost, arrayed in
white haunts Chelsea at ttie twilight hour,
and recently asked a little girl for "a
penn'orth o' tobacco." ThatCarlyle should
walk, after the manner in which he had
been treated by Mr. Froude, is, thinks the
Jmdon Echo, not surprising; but it might
be supposed that, that instead of asking for
tobacco, he would have made a grim de
mand for his biographer.

A favorite way to cook potatoes now is to
boil them in their jackets until they are

going into the garden behind her house, a
snake about four feet long coming toward
her. She screamed and ran, thus attract
the 'attention of a gentleman, who
d the reptile. It wai a beautiful
creature, and a person who saw it said that
it was of a rare variety. While wondering
how the serpent could have reached so
thickly a settled part of the city, and be
found ao far from the woods and fields,
the wife of a Germau phyaipUn, who li.vea
around the corner from the lady a house,
came up and inquired in tones of great
solicitude if anyone had seen her "pet
snake," and when she discovered its dead
body she was loud ia her manifestations of
grief and anger. She, however, became
more resigned, and carefully gatheriog the
remains in her arms ana walked away
lamenting and talking to the dear one,
now dead, in a cooing manner, and calling
|t loving names.
