' The "break" which President Grant once prophesied as sure to occur to tho South has hapjM'ned. ' Tue Solid South "breaks" before the successful liberaliz ing movement which began here in 1879. In foretelling this "break" Presi dent Grant said that when it took place the men who participated In it would be astonished to see how many had been impatiently waiting and longing for this "convenient season to abandon Dem ocracy and Bourbonism and come to Republicanism. Il'e arc here! The convention of Wednesday night filled President Grant's prediction, astonish ing even the onlooking Bourbons with incontestable evidence that the "break" lias been made, and that the sinking ship of Bourbonism is being deserted already. The bold and decisive action of Wednesday night Is as attractive as it is startling; and the gallant men who led the way in this revolt and liberation from a hateful political bondage will soon discover that eager throngs are hur rying in their footsteps. The Rubicon is fiossed the die Is cast and now for ward to that good fortune which ever at tends brave men resolute to be free and to redeem their soil from crushing and humiliating oppression. lUchmorul From Par's comes announcement of tho death of Amio Leonio, Boronno Daumsnil.

From Gaiety to Grief: Somewhere about two years ago the Democrats were an exceedingly merry set, and looked forward to tholr mag nificent seventy-eight majority in the House as a fair inkling of a tidal wave that should sweep all before it In tho coming election of 1884. The merri ment has subsided altogether, and the Domocratio minds are now soberly re floctivo and thoughtful.' The two ablost men in the party have ooncontratod their thoughts upon the problem of nn Issue on which to conduct the cam paign, and havo arrived at results which have been given to tho world through tho Chicago Iroquois Club. Tho conclusions differ, and tho differenjo represents vory fairly tho stato of mind of the party. Tho wisdom . of Bayard snos in the Morrison bill the element of popularity that can save the party. Tho wisdom of Tilden sees the necessity of avoiding the tariff issue at tlio present time. : It is tho first time in tho history of parties in this country that the con fessedly lougest-hoailod man of any of them has written nn important public letter on tho situation just before tho battle, and made no commendatory allu sion to tho vital measure which the rep resentative of his party in Congress have concoct d as a enmpuin issue. Tim Democrats have always been di vided on ll:o tariff, as they nrcnow, but ha vu got on well enough because they luno u it niadi! thn Issuo prominent.

Exclui nj '. Democracy In Louisiana, After all the promises that the city of Now Orleans and the Stato of Louisiana should this time enjoy the novelty of an honest election,' the recent Stato election was marked by the usual scenes of vio lence and Lallot box shilling. The In spectors appointed for each polling Iilaco in tho city of New Orleans by the dayor, according to law, and the Com missioners appointed by the StMte Reg istrar, wore ejected by forco from tho polling-rooms all over tho city as soon as the polls opened in the morning and, during the riotous incitement at tending tin so performances, tho ballot boxes wero stuffed with the tickets of the " regular" Democratic faction. Tho State Registrar being requested to in terfere, at least so far as to call upon the Governor to maintain the law, declined to do anything whatevor about the matter. It is alleged by the independent Democrats and Republicans that at least eight thousand to ten thousand "rcgu'ar" Domocratio tickeU wero stuffed Into the ballot boxes in tho city. Bosides this Illegal performance, as tlio news came In during tho dnyof a surprisingly large vote for the Republican nomineo for Uovernor in the adjoining pnrisiies, not a single ward in the city of New Or leans had its vote counted on the night of the election By holding back the count it could be seen whether it would be necessary to stuff the city ballot boxes some inoro to mane a suro tuing of carrying the election; and, If neces sary, more rotes could be added before bcglnnlnr the count This is a' speci men of Domocratio bartv rule in mo South.

It is questionable whether it is advisable to plow Into tho soli manuro that Is not to bo made available dv the immediate planting of tho crop. If the generation of ammonia by the decomposition of decayed turf-lniid causes its Ions if no crop'is growing, would not tho same thing occur in the decomposition of manuro?

His story in his own words was as follows: Two days after loaving Barbourvillo 1 spent the night at the cabin of a poor farmer aincnj the hills, and during a so cial family conversation. Jit which I par ticipated, after suppor, Rome one incident ally spolio of Hector Davis, "the nmn without bones."

Ho shulH.-d off his slipper and roipiotol mo to stop on his foot. 1 did so, mil it at onco spread Itself out until it looked as if a railroad train had passed over it. It slowly resumed Its natural ' shape, Lut it was fully a half hour before be was able to get fio foot in his slipper again. "Perhaps you would like to tie my leg in knot? " ho suATe.ited. ' I found no d.Illculty In performing this foat, while my friend accomplished tho same with the other leg, and after we had iso tied knots in both his arms he pre sented a very knotty problem, indeed, and one that would havo set a professional contortionist crary. ' ' ' When wo l al unravelled all the knot, and strnlghtvii.'l Ms limbs again, ho re quested us to lift him gently from his trsme-york and plnco him npon the fl ior. This we found no ca.iy tnsk, for his body" slipped about In our arms like an eol, and It was only by securing a firm grip upon his clothing that wo iiiaim d to keep him from lulling. Wo finally succeeded In straightening him out upon the floor, and thou my friend, who seemed to thoroughly understand the mail's programme, selicd a barrel standing neur anil which I after words learned contained turnips, and swiftly upending it, ut once proceeded to roll it over tlio prostratu Davis, from his toes up to his chili, and back aain to bis too:. Tho only manifestation of pain hema l was whan the barrel passed ovor his heart and lungs, but it loft Mm In a horrible shape, 1 can only descril it by compar ing it to that of a man rasde of mud, and then thrown up and flattened against a walk But I bad no timi to contemplate his flatness, as he almost immediately call ed to us In a rather weak voice to "roll him up." This we proceeded to do by doubling his bead ovor bluchostanl then continuing to "roll him op" as you would a carpet, until we came to his foot, and be formed a perfect cylinder about a largo as a half barrel. A voice feebly piped from the centre of the eyllndor for as to unroll him, and we soon bad him onoatnore spread out over th floor. , While, his body was resuming Its former shape, I learned from bis old, spectacled mother, who had sat during all these pro ceedings knitting In her rocking chair, that Hector, who was fcrty years old, had always enjoyed excellent i health, and pro vided well for her until the beginning of his peculiar affliction two years ago. He flrst observed a softening of tlio bouet of the toes, and this rapidly spread to all parts of bis anatomy, although, beyond making bim helpless, be never experienced any lnconvenb nee from It. All his vital organs performed tbeir functions properly, and she believed ha would live to a good old age.

The Introduction of Illuminated ballot girls has greatly added to the attraotions of the spectacular stage. Olrls with eleo trio lights on tbeir foreheads, and batteries concealed in the recesses of their clothing first made their appearanoe a year ago, but as yet the use of illuminated girls has not spread beyond th stage. There is, however, a great futurenwaitlng the grand idea of incandescent girls, and there ls reason to believe that in a very short time private houses will ho lighted by girls in stead of ttutiouary tl.-el rie lights. The formation of the Electric Oirl Light ing Company Is an event seoond in Import anco only to the invention of electrio light. This oompany proposes to supply girls of fifty candle power each in quanti ties to suit householders Tho girls are to be fed and clothed by the company, and customers will, of coarse, bo permitted to select at tho company's warohouse what ever style of girl may please lliolr fancy.

Tho prosent system of lighting a front ball of a dwell-ins-bouse has the dioadvantago that the light wliMtiiur It be a gas light or au elec tric light must be kopt burning all tho evei.ing. aud.that a servant must bo cm ployed to answer tho bell. Thus thoro ls a double expense tho cost of the light and ' the cost of tho servant. Tlio Klcctrio Oirl ' Lighting Company will lur nl.iii a beautiful girl of flCty or a hundred candle-power, who will bo on duty from dusk till midnight or ns much later as may be desired.

If, however, nny householder should desire to keep the tdectrlu fcirl constantly burning and to employ another sirvniH to answer the bell, thero can be no doubt thut tho '.lcctrle girl, posing In a plcturosquu atti tude, will add muc'a to the decoration of the llous '.

There can bo no comparison between a beautifully doslgnud and chaste 'y executed oiectric girl and a massive :bamlcllor tiiat constantly threatens to full ju somebody' head; and every, house holder of OMlliolIc instincts will bo glad to whaugo his chandeliers for girls. . Au inexpensive oloctrlc girl of one or two candle fowor will be of great use When ' i person desires to go-from ono room to mother in a dark liouse. Instead of hav ing to carry a candle In bis hand and incur the risk of dropping it or having It blown lut by a draught of air, the happy posses tor of an electrio girl con turn her on and loud her before bim to light to way.
