Then and Now. Saturday, March 4, a party took charge of the executive and legislative - depart ments of this governments for the first time la thlrtytwo yean. March 4, 1861 this party controled the executive, legis lative and Judicial departments, ine con ditlon of affairs at that time are well known to Individuals of fifty years of age. The ludicial department had decided with a full bench and all concurring that the black man had no rights tnat tn white man was bound to respect; the executive sat with folded arms and said that he was Dowerless to coerce a state a to remain In the union; in both branches of congress a majority of the memrjers from dixie tendered their resignations of to Join the advocates of states rights; the vaults in the treasury were empty and our bonds foiind no buyers at twelve per cent Interest; our nayal vessels were float ing In dlBtant seas; the Incoming ruler was compelled to seek the capital In the night season in order to save his liie; trouble was perched upon every corner. We do not care to rehearse the history of such dark days for the republic, but It seems but fitting that a mention should be made ol these matters Just at this time. The same parly takes charge of the ship of state and It remains to be seen how they will direct matters. The same spirit la as firmly rooted in the south for states rights as it was when Sumpter was fired upon, but ol course It would be folly to attempt to enforce any thing of that kind now. The people have said that this party must return to administer the affairs of the government and we must be content and hope for all the good we can to come out of it Four years will be sufficient time to Indicate the policy that will be enforced. When President Cleveland took bis eat in 1883, we had the senate consequent ly we controled legislative matters to a certain extent, which did not leave the party the power they now have. Our national debt Is being rapidly re duced, and our credit Is gold tinged. Our bonds can be negotiated quickly at three per cent The slave la a man and no more wars or even rumors of wars are afloat. Let us wait and see. Ex-President Harrison left Washington, D.C,ior Indianapolis Baturday evening. It is now Benjamin Harrison, a private citizen. While he made some grave mistakes during his administration be left the chair with clean bands, lie was con nected with no Jobbery or tricks during his entire term. In looking over the ad ministrations of the executives for the past score of years we can see none that was less faultless than that of President Arthur. Although he toot the chair un der a dark cloud it was soon swept away, and the light has been constantly growing brighter up to the present time. While be was firm be was modest and unas suming, which won him hosts of frieuds. When he vetoed a bill he set forth his iva aons In such a logical manner that every one appeared to be satisfied. The difiulty be preicrved at the executive mansion has never been equaled. Visitors were only admitted upon certain duys snd hand shaking was not resorted to. President Cleveland has selected Hires members of his cabinet from the east, two from the went and three from the south. New York state has two, the sec retary ol war and postmaster general. In 1889 he selected the secretary of the treas ury and nary from that state. Kentucky, Georgia and Alabama are favored with positions. Grcsliani and Carlisle are the only members that are generally known and are men of ability The honor . was . conferred - on D 8. Lamont on account of his valuable ser vices rendered as private secretary during the president's last term of office. Ex-Gov. R. M. Bishop departed this life at the home of his son in Jackson ville, Fla., March 2, aged 80 years. lie occupied the chair from 1878 to 1880. The x-governors are fast passing away. Hayes died In January. J. D. Cox, who served from 1800 Mo 1808, Fontet from 1880 to 1884, Hoadly from 1884 to 1888, Foraker from 1880 to 1800, Camp bell Irom 1800 to 1892 are still living. President Cleveland's Inaugural address Is noted for its brevity. Of course be can do nothing at present bnt execute the laws ss he finds them and as there Is to be no extra session ol congress his recom mendations will be withheld until the meeting of congress in December next. The Mormons have ceased to disturb the good order of the republic It took anwe than lorty years lo subdue them, but It lias been done. Any other church so cieties that are constantly interfering with 1he enforcement of the laws should take warning. Baby Ruth has superseded Baby McKee. . A MOUNTAIN OF BARK. Am IBUM0M Pile o( Wast That Caaaai Be UtUlxed. A few miles from Mannheim, New York, there ia a village supported entirely by its vast manufactory for changing the cinchona bark into the quinine of commerce. Sev eral other medicinal extracts be sides quinine are got from the baric, bnt after it is put to every possi ble use there remaina a substance, In bulk almost equal to the original bark, for which no possible use has been dis covered. Usually manufactories art able to turn their waste products to some sort of use to fertilisers, to thi making of embankments, to the filling of uneven ground. And if they cannot nse them in some positive way, they may at least burn them, and so get rid of the burden. Not so with this refuse from cinchona bark. Years ago, according to the New York Sun, the manufactory dumped this stufl into the river. But the government was called in to investigate, and found that the worthless stufl not only killed the fishes, but so embittered the waters that they were not fit to drink. Bo li was forbidden to the manufactory to nse the river for carrying off its wast products. Then ground was bought, and they started to dumping. And now the village is under the shadow ol a great hill, that is rapidly growing, and will soon be little short of a moun tain. This huge artificial mound is an unsightly, barren thing, covering many acres of soil that might be put to some use. Borne day an order may come to remove the mountain into the midst oi the sea. The manufacturers hope, how ever, that science, which has touched so many unsightly and useless things with a magio wand, may enchant even the bitter and worthless refuse of cin chona) bark and make their mountain a gold mine. PALMETTO PAPER. A Xew ul Valuable Addition to Fpt btoek. At the present time when paper stock is scarce and the prices advancing, a special Interest ia taken by paper man ufacturers in palmetto fiber. It is not generally known that factories have been established in the south for the manufacture of paper from that article. It is only within the last few years that American manufacturers have paid any attention to this fiber as a paper stock. In England and France, however, it has been for more than thirty years in practical nse. In fact, one firm in Lon don have used over one thousand pounds yearly for the last twenty years. The material which they nse and which ia converted into notes and bonds is pro duced in Africa. The great expense of procuring it has deterred manufactur ers in this country from using It, but since the establishment of factories here this difficulty to a great extent has been overcome. It is said that the great solidity of palmetto wood pulp makes it more valuable than any other wood pulp, and it is therefore recom mended to pianufaataren for the mak ing of palls, tubs, casks and other uten sils. Because of its solidity, it is also very valuable for use in rough casts for models and moldings. The supply of this wood is practically unlimited; it is now found in endless quantities all over Florida, The leaf and stem ore almost entirely composed of valuable fibers, which in the raw state have a rough appearance. These are not very pliant when dry, but are exceedingly flexible when wet, and if skillfully handled can be divided into extremely small threads. In many instances the finer grades of fiber resemble wool more then cotton, linen or silk. "UNCIVIL KINDNESS." TeaderoeM of tloart Hut Partially Con cealed by KouRhooM or Manner. Robert Louis Ntevonson, In his book of essirys entitled "Across the Plains,'' gives an example of what he culls the "uncivil klmlnet.s'' of Americana that rough friendlinesa which, in its contra dictory character, is so bewildering to the foreigner newly landed. lie says: "It was immediately after I had left the e mi grout train, and I am told that I looked like a man at death's door, so much had the long journey shaken she. I sat at the end of Uie car, and, the catch being broken and myself sick and feverish, I had to hold tho door open with my foot for tho sake of air. "In this attitude my leg barred the newsboy from his box of merchandise. I made haste to let him pass when I ob served that he was coming; but I was busy with a book, and so, once or twice, he camo upon mo unawares. "On these occasions he most rudely struck my foot sslde, and though I my self apologized, as if to show him the wsy, he answered me never a word. I chafed furiously, and I fear the next time it would have come to words; but suddenly I felt a touch upon my shoul der, and a large, Juicy pear wss put into my hand. "It was the newsboy, who bad ob served that I was looking III, and so made me this present out of a tender heart "For the rest of the journey I was petted like a sick child; he lent me newspapers, thus depriving himself of his legitimate profit on their sale, and came repeatedly to sit by me and cheer me up." Waal tho Indiana Think. There is something for the "native American" stock to reflect upon, says the Worcester Spy, in the remarks of one of the Indian girls from the Car lisle Indian school, which wss repre sented by three hundred and twenty two pupils in the great parade of school children in New York this week. This girl had been taking in the sights of the metropolis with others in charge of a white teacher. They had been down to Ellis island to witness the landing of some emigrants, and after witnessing for awhile this great horde of foreign ers who were stow ding ashore, this Carlisle girl remarked to her white teacher: "Your people drove us out centuries ago. Now these people are eomlnr to drive you oat If yon don't atop them you will be in a few centu ries what my people art now." WASHINGTON LETTER. WiiiiruoTON, March 8. There may have been congresses that sccomplished less than the flftysecond they all appro priated less money but if so, they were turther back than your correspondent re members. The closing hours of the pres ent congress do not differ from those of its predecessors, except that there are about ten times as many office seekers crowding the corridors of the capttol as were ever seen here before. In 1889 It wss thought tbst the army of office-seekers which marched upon Washington was large, but it wss only as a regiment to a corpse when compared with that now here. The excitement snd turmoil in congress has been great all this week, but there bss been but little business of general interest transacted, as the appropriation bills, which were in su unususlly backward condition, have taken np most of the time In both house and senate. The hot fight which was expected over the Sherman bond amendment was svolded by the Inends of the smeridmeht agreeing not to press It, that being the only way to pre vent the failure of the sundry civil ap propriation, as the silver men had an nounced their intention to fllllbuster against It to the end of the session. One of the very few meritorious laws enacted by this congress is that providing for the use of automatic car couplers by all inters :ate railroads, which was forced through the house and signed by the pres ident this week. It is probable that no bill signed by Gen. Harrison during his term gave him more pleasure than this one, which be was largely Instrumental In bringing to the front, by persistent recom mendations In bis annual messages to congress. Mr. Cleveland arrived yesterday and was enthusiastically received by the as sembled office-seekers, who seem to have the idea that the dismissal of republicans is to begin bright and early Monday morning. By the way, speaking of office-seekers, some of them bnvo introduced a new wrinkle. They carry around not sll of them, but ninny of them printed card, bearing their nsmes snd places ol resi dence, followed by "candidate for chief of the sinecures," or whatever the office is that they are after. A collection ot these cards would make ss interesting souvenir that would recall the beginning ol ihU ad ministration In sfieryeers, when the dope ol democracy shall have proven too much for s naus"itd country, as it will in '90. The anii-opilnn bill, which bus occu pied so much ot the time ol both the house and senate dlrlng the Ufiy-third congress, came ! lu dentil brcnuse Its frieuds in sn Httemrit to get the house under s suspension of the rules lo cncur In tho senate amendment, could not mus ter the necessity .two I urda xcta A Fathers Gratitude Impels Him to Tell How His Son Was Saved White Bxrelllna and Scrofula Per fectly t'ured. wsmb Bon of John L. afoMurrcy -Of Ravenswood, W. VS " I do not write this at the request of any one, but because I feel It a duty to hu manity, so that others afflicted as my boy wss may know where to find rollcf. " When my son was seven years old he began to complain of soreness in bis right lei. A whlto swelling soon appeared just below the knee joint, and extended from the knee to tho ankle. At the same tlms he was taken with sn attack of fever, which was broken up, but the leg became very badly swollen, causing bun great suffering, and the muscles so contracted that his leg was drawn up at right angles. He was unable to walk, could not even bear to be handled, and 1 thought him a Confirmed Cripple. "After a time we had the swelling lanced, midway between the knee and the ankle, and It would discharge over a pint of pus at times. I decided to take him to Cincinnati to have the leg operated upon, expecting he would lose It, But he had become so poor and weak that I thought I would let him gather some strength, if possible, and boucl.t a bottlo of Hood's Barsaparilla and began giving it to him. This medicine soon woke np his appetite, Hood's is Cures snd he ate more heartily than for a long time. At this tlms the sore wss discharg ing freely, and soon nieces of bona began to corns out. I hsvs In my office one piece of bone 8 1-4 Inches long by nearly half an Inch broad, which came out of the sore. We continued giving him Hood's Barsa parilla. The discharge from the sore de creased, the swelling wsnt down, the leg straightened out, and soon he bad perfect nse of his leg. He now runs everywhere, ss lively as any boy, and apparently , At Won aa Ivor. .
