[From the Nation, Oct. 17]
We presume the most ardent pro
moter of the '-beneficent revolution"
aclmils ty this time that it has been
iudi finitely X'ostponed or, in other
words, that "the Greeley movement"
has virtually come to an end. The
bawling and vituperation of the cam
paign will doubtie be carrieil on a
fortninht longer by the more zealous
and irrepressible of the disciples, but
they all know perfectly well that the
game is up, and that tne iage win
nave to remain in the private elation
in which he has won the admiration
of so many honest people, and in
which he has rendered his country so
much real service. It is, therefore,
we presume, not a bit too soon to ask
the various 'independent journalists,'
"thoughtful Democrats," and "Chris
tian politicians" who have been
"working'.' for Greeley, to tit dowu
for a few minutes for sober, tirofi table
thought, though it may be bitter re
flection. The first thinp; that must strike
them as singular and disheartening in
the present situation is t'.iat now that
the (jreiley movement has come to
an end, it leaves absolutely nothing
behind it. With the disappearance
of the candidate the whole organiza
tion vanishes into thin air. Net an
idea, principle, doctrine, maxim, or
hope docs it drop in the political
arena. What we tee, after the com
batants have retired, is simply seveial
hundred vards of blacksuard newspa
per articles, and the prostrate forms of
several seriously jiijureu iioiiiiuiuiis
who will probably not be fit for duty
for several months, and some of
whom we sincerely respect and tried
iu vain to keep out of this wretched
This is of course, however, as every
one now sees and as every one might
months aero have foreseen, the natur
al consequence of the conversion of
the reform movement into a mere
personal assault on General Grant.
Mr. Sehurz never said a truer thing
in his life than when he warned the
Cincinnati Convention that if it took
up the cry, 'Anything to beat Grant,'
it were better it had never met. In
doing so It lost atone blow the sup
port of a large portion of those silent
but sympathetic spectators through
out the country who were looking
eagerly to it fo'r something in the na
ture of a political revolution. But
even if it be admitted that all the
charges Messrs. Sumner and Sehurz
have made against- Grant were true,
and that it was desirable to replace
him by somebody else, and that a
campaign having for its object his ex
pulsion from the Presidential chair,
and nothing else, was legitimate, the
first condition of success iu such a
campaign was the selection of a can
didate who would bear scrutiny from
all s'des, and bear it well, and whom
the Democrats might have rallied to
without patent baseness and trickery
or. their part, and without time-serving
or tergiversation on his. As there
has to be a President, it wa clear
enough that people would not turu
Grant out without a very careful con
sideration of what they were to putiu
his place, in other words, there was
no use in Sumner's or Schurz's or
Trumbull's going about the country
denouncing Grant simply. These
denunciations by themselves pro
duced little or no impression. Few
if any would form any judgment on
them until they heard what hau to
be said about the man who it was
proposed should succeed Grant: for
the faults of one candidate and the
merits of the other form in the voter's
mind one idea, complex it raav be.
but still one. To abuse Grant, tiieie-

hat was most injurious to Mr.
Greeley was, however, not Mr. Gree
ley's own record, bad as that was in
many places, but his alliance with
the Democracy. If it be asked why
Democratic support should have
proved more injurious to him than to
anv other possible or probable Liberal
candidate Mr. Adams, for instance
the answer is very simple. Mr.
Greeley's whole career down to 1871
was of a kind that made any reconcil
iation or common action between him
and the Democrats impossible without
such a serious modification of opinions
on his part as would shake all confi
dence either in his honesty or his
sagacity; and, for the purposes of
the Presidency, it made little dmer-
ence in the popular eye whether he
was a knave or a rooi. lie may nave
been right in his language or opin
ions during the last twenty years, but,
if he was, his sudden change on re
ceiving his nomination was sure to
destroy confidence in his virtue; if
he was not right, his failure to find it
out till this late period was fatal to
his reputation for wisdom. More
over, he was one of the few men
whom the Democrats could not take
up without exciting disgust. Their
transaction with Greeley was not one
that could be hidden from the public
gaze. Everybody saw the whole of
it, and it was marked throughout by
the suppression or repudiation of
everything which served the Demo
cratic organization as a reason for ex
isting. What it had to surrender, in
order to take Greeley, left no excuse
for its maintenance except naked
greed for office. The country would
not swallow such a combinati-m.
There were men in the Republican
ranks, or possessing Republican sym
pathies, whose general ideas on the
subject of reconstruction, taxation,
State rights and general governmen
tal policy, made it possible for the
Democrats to support them without
any other abandonment of principle
than what hard facts had made plain
ly necessary; but Greeley was not one
of. these men. and the Cincinnati
Convention refused to nominate any
of them.
Moreover, the attempt to make
Greeley the apostle of reconciliation
was not only a failure, but the most
ludicrous failure of all. Reconcilia
tion is a process partly mental and
partly moral. Enemies are recon
ciled by the mutual determination to
forget past differences, and by the
springing up of a mutual liking. Iu
the absence of these facts there is no
reconciliation. Whenever they ex
ist between the North aud the South,
the North and the South will be rec
onciled, no matter who is President ;
as long as they do not exist, they will
not be reconciled, no matter who is
President. To talk of reconciliation
through the election of a particular
man, without reference to the state of
puhlic sentiment, is absurd. Indeed,
the oddest thing in the Greeley can
vass was the determination of many
of his newspapers to treat everybody
who denied his fitness for the Presi
dency as a fosterer of discord ; that is,
they would only hear of one mode of
reconciling North and South, and
this was by making President a man
whom three-fourths of the voters be
lieved, on various grounds, to be unfit
for the position, and who Lad played
a larger part than any one living in
precipitating the conflict which made
reconciliation necessary. Ex-President
Mahan's sermons, showing
Greeleyism to be a sort of double-extract
of Christianity, were perhaps as
odd freaks as were ever perpetrated
in the name of religion. "We want
you to be good friends," said the
Greeley apostles, "evermore; but we
insist that the only way to become
good friends is to stand on your heads
for five minutes ; anybody who says
you can be reconciled in any other
way than this is a man of blood."
The last point in the lesson which
our Grecleyite friends may learn from
the campaign is perhaps the most
FroGta'ule and important one of all.
t is that the American people.though
an enthusiastic people, are a business
neonle that is, in spite of their great
toleration of mere talkers, they have
a strong liking and admiration for
doers, or men who have displayed
capacity In the conduct of imnortaut
afl'tirs. The Cincinnati Greelevites
underrated the weight of this particu
Isritv enormously, and are now suf
fering for it ; but when they began of
late to ridicule Grant Tor not making
speeches, they showed that they had
not then found out what was the
matter with them. The truth Is, that
a man who has won battles may re
main silent till the end of his life
without losing the popular confidence.
General Grant has successfully trans
acted some of the most important
business which falls to the lot of man
business which e7ery one feels in
his heart tasks human powers to their
utmost capacity. To shake the hold
which this eives him on the popular
mind, you have not only to prove his
shortcomings, but to put against him
another man who also has displayed
talent Tor great affairs, or, at all event,
talent of the kind which produces
tangible and striking results. Instead
of this, the Greeleyites put up a man
who had never displayed any capaci
ty for affairs, and never figured in
any great transaction, and who had
wou his influence and reputation ny
mere preaching without responsibili
ty, and without exposure to any tests
or checks beyond those created by
newspaper "sales" and "subscrip
tions." No doubt it is a great thing
to have established the New York
Tribune; but you cannot get people
to believe that it is an exploit indica
tive of fitness for any other business
in life, or put the man who performs
it on a level with a great commander
or great financier. Of course, too,
whatever absurdity In Mr. Greeley's
nomination was created by his per
sonal character and antecedents was
aggravated by the attempt to get op a
"singing campaign" iu his honor.
No man can be sung into the Presi
dency who has not some trace of the
hero in his composition. He must in
some wav strike the imagination.
The Greeley candidate was nothing if
not ludicrous. His Dest friends smiled
when they spoke of him. His odd
clothes, odd gait, edd expressions and
bad manners might have stimulated
enthusiasm if tbey had belonged to
one who had turned the tide of battle
on famous fields, or directed the for
tunes of a great campaign, or shaped
and embodied in legislation great
lines of policy. But in this case there
was nothing behind them in the way
of achievement but a mound of slip
shod and abusive "editorials," and a
few hasty, crude books on subjects he
had only half mastered. The cam
paign w'ill now pass into history as
the most comical and yet the most
instructive episode in American politics.
[From the Chicago Evening Post]
It is ou some accounts to be re
gretted that Mr. Greeley will not be
elected presidentof the United States.
Mr. Gieeley is an editor. Mr. Gratz
Brown is an editor. Doubtless the
cabinet would be largely composed of
editors. Mr. Greeley is indebted for
the organization of the party which
supports him to three distinguished,
or rather famous editors, without
whose help the movement which re
sulted iu his nomination could have
reached no formidable proportions.
These three editors, in the order of
their standing and ability, are Theo
dore Tilton, of the Golden Age,
Murat Halsted, of the Cincinnati
Commercial, and Horace White, of
the Chicago Tribune. Mr. Greeley
could in no event overlook the claims
of these gentlemen, and these gentle
men would probably not allow him to
overlook them if he would. Of course
neither of them would accept any less
diguifitd position than that of mem
ber of the cabinet, and as, by so dis
posing of them, the shrieks of locality
would be nicely accommodated, mem
bers of the cabinet they would doubt
less all three be, Mr. Tilton, who is
understood to entertain similar views
to Mr. Greeley on certain financial
qestions, and is equally crochety and
hair-brained on most other subjects,
would doubtless be appointed secre
tary of the treasury. Mr. Murut
Halsted, who has, to begin with, a
very warlike nature, and who allows
no man to knock a chipofThis shoulder
with impunity, aud who served with
credit at the rear of the German army
all through the great Franco Prussian
coutest, would of course be booked
for the secretary of war, and Dr.
White, who is distinguished for his
devotion to letters, and is familiar
with all foreign tongues, including
Norwegian, Russian and the original
Irish, would be duly ensconced in
the honored bureau of state. There
would still remain two editors to be
provided for, to wit: Carl Sehurz
aud Gov. Bross. The former would
doubtless be sent to France, aud the
latter to England.
To the accomplishment of this
felicitous arrangement the democracy
might interpose objections. But these
ought to be easily satisfied. There
would still remain two cabinet officers
for the northern democracy, and two
for the rebel democracy, besides the
position which the elder Blair occu
pied iu the private office or back
chamber of Andy Johnson, of confi
dential adviser to the President. This
would doubtless be accorded by com
mon consent to JelTerson Davis. The
others would probably be filled by
Seymour and Blair from the North,
and by Hunter aud Breckenridge
from the South.
What would become of a country
chiefly niauaged by editors, we are a
little anxious to know. What soft of
a happy family they would make iu
cabinet council we are almost dying
to see. We fear there might not be
absolute harmony upon every ques
tion aud upon all occasions. Were
the subject of the taritf to come before
the body for discussion, for Instance.
Dr. White might hazard the sugges
tion that a system of protective
duties was simply a system of legal
ized robbery; aud H. 0. might reply
in his geutle and genial way that the
doctor was a liar and a villain : and
the doctor would be altogether likely
to come back at his assailant with the
rejoinder that he was an inspired
harlequin and an educated idiot.
Whereupon a resort to blows would
only be prevented by the intervention
of Warrior Halsted and the final
indignant withdrawal of H. G. from
the consultation, with the parting
iujunction to the whole counsel of his
editorial brethren to "go West, and
be d-d."
But we will not enlarge upon the
happy consequences of so felicitous a
result. The prospects of its being
carried out are not flattering. The
people have first to be consulted; and
as the people have somehow imbibtd
an old fashioned notion that editors
are impractical zealots, with more
brains than sense, and more preach
ing than principle, they will doubtless
postpone for the present the realiza
tion of theirambition, and the country
will iu some incomprehensible way
lie compelled to niase shift without

Dr. Sapp's New Electro-Thermal bath
Dr. Sapp's New Electro-Thermal bath Cure--A Model Establishment.
An institution, the need of which
has long been felt in Cleveland, has
at last been established, namely, ft
bath cure, complete in every respect,
and which will doubtless prove a bles
sing to our community. Dr. L. W.
Sapp, the well-known and popular
physician, is the man to whom l leve
land owes the establishment of this
institution, which in the future is to
he one of ereat benefit to our beau a
ful city. Well persons and also in
valids may well rejoice, for hpre is a
remedy for almost ail human ailments
and a benefit alike to the sick and
For the past month the building No.
74 Ontario street bas been the scene of
busy preparations. All classes of
mechanics nave oeen busily engaged
in tearing down partitions, removing,
cleansing and putting things in shape
for the great transformation. The
house has been refitted, painted, pre
pared and everything done to make
the building comfortable and elegant
in all its appointments. It is need
less to say that so far as the conveni
ences for baths are concerned, all the
most approved appliances have been
brought into requisition, and a visit
to the cure will convince any one that
Dr. Sapp understands what he is do
ing and intends to make his new en
terprise a success in every respect.
Yesterdiiy aflernonn our reporter visi
ted the scene of operations, and altho'
workmen were engaged in putting on
the finishing touches, yet all was in
apple pie order, and the appearance
of things denoted that no pains or
expense was being spared to render
the cure a model in its way.
On entering the d xir, the visitor is
ushered into a spacious reception room
or office, where the patrons of the in
stitution are received and their wants
attended to. The room is handsome
ly furnished and carpeted, and is a
sample of what will be round in oth
er parts of the building. Adjoining
this reception room are two electro
thermal catn rooms, intended especi
ally for the accommodation of ladies.
The rooms are carpeted ai.d the electro-thermal
bath tubs are new and
constructed upon the newest and
most approved pattern. Connected
with these rooms is a . vapor and
shower bath.al-o for ladies, soarraneed
that a person can take both an electro
thermal ana vapor natn witnoui De
ing nut to any inconvenience. In the
rear of these bath rooms is the ladies'
dressing room, neatly furnished and
designed for the comfort of the patrons
of the establishment.
Ascending to the second floor, the
visitor finds himself ushered into an
elegant front room, which is Dr.
Sapp'a private consultation room, and
which is furnished in the same sump
tuous style as the rooms below. On
this floor are two large electro ther
mal bath rooms for gentlemen, a va
por bath and a gentlemen's cressing
room, arrangea ana lurnisnea in the
same manner as the rooms on the first
floor. There is also an Ingenious ar
rangement for sulphur and mercurial
baths, on this floor, which are recom
mended by the medical profession as
particularly efficacious in eruptive
The third floor is devoted to ordi
nary bath rooms, where anyone can
be accommodated with a hot or cold
bath, as may be desired. It is well
known that the bath rooms in hotels
and barber shops are not kept in such
a state ol comfort and cleanliness as
could be desired, but these, we are as
sured by the courteous doctor, will be
kept so neat and clean that the most
fastidious person cannot find fault.
As stated above, this establishment
will be known as Dr. Sapo's Electro
Thermal Bath Cure. The different
kinds of baths that can be had here
are as follows : Electro-Thermal, Va
por, Medicated apor, Sulphur, Mer
curial and Iron. The species of dis
ease which these baths are designed
to cure are of the nervous order, and
comprise paralysis, neuralgia, rheu
matism, scrofula, general debility,
diseasesofthe heart and lungs.catarrh,
bronchitis, liver, spleen and kidney
complaints. In all cases, these baths
have proved themselves all that they
are represented to be, and all sufferers
from any of the above named diseases
would do well to visit Dr. Sapp, .and
put themselves under bis care, to be
treated in the bath cure.
The electro-thermal bath, besides
being efficacious in various diseases, is
a delightful, refreshing bath for per
sons in perfect health. The bath tub
is so arranged that the electricity can
be applied to any part of the body, or
all parts, and flows through the limbs
and body in an uninterrupted current,
creating an extremely agreeable sen-cation.
Experienced attendants are em
ployed on each floor of the house, and
patients will be kindly cared lor and
skillfully treated.- The remainder of
the block, consisting of four spacious
houses, will be furnished for the ac
commodation of i-atients who may
wish to lodge in close proximity to
the Cure, aud St. Clair Place, immedi
ately adjoining, isa convenient place
for obtaining meals. The houses are
beatsd with steam throughout, and as
before stated, are furnished in a luxu
rious aud comfortable style.
Dr. Sapp will give his patients at
the Cure, the benefit of his extensive
medical experience and will person
ally supervise theadministeringof the
various baths. The Doctor's skill in
bis profession is too well known to
need comment here. We would say
however, that his enterprise in estab
lishing this Bath Cure should be ap-
firecialed, as it doubtless will, and the
iberal patronage which he deserves
should be extended.
No expense bas been spared to make
this a perfect establishment. It is at
the same time elegant, neat and com
fortable, perfect iu all its appoint
ments, aud above all in a location of
prominence, easy of access, and the
rates for treatment will be so reasona
ble as to be within the reach of all.
We would advise all sufferers to call
at 74 Ontario Street aud inspect Dr.
Sapp's new establishment and satisfy
themselves that what we have said is
not exaggerated. We believe and
trust it will be a success, and depend
upon the liberality of our citizens to
make it so. J. V. Mathivet, the well
known plumber aud steam fitter, bas
bad charge of the steam apparatus
and plumbing, which is a guarantee
that every convenience in this line
has been supplied.
A few finishing touches yet remain
to be given, winch will necessarily
delay the opening of the Cure until
Tuesday or Wednesday of the coming
week. After that date, the Doctor will
be pleased to receive bis friends and
patients in bis new quarters, aud we
believe that all will be astonished at
the change that has been made in the
appearance of the building. Call and
see the Doctor on Tuesday next.
A wholesale liquor firm in Paterson,
N. J., were surprised the other morn
inz at the abseuce of a revenue stamp
just affixed to a barrel of whisky by
the Assistant Assessor, ana as tney
could not sell the liquor without the
stamp and the stamp could not be
duplicated, they were in an awkward
fix. Suddeuly they remembered that
a Dutchman had been seen sitting on
the barrel immediately after the
stamp was pasted on, and on finding
that gentleman and looking under
the tail of his coat, the mystery was
solved. After some trouble the stamp
was transferred from the innocent
German to the barrel, and the excite
ment subsided.
Twelve years ago, of all tne men in
the nation, of respectable qualifica
tions and position, there was not oue,
perhaD?, who seemed less likely to
become President of these United
States than Ulysses S. Grant. En
gaged in a vocation without the eclat
attending the "learned professions."
ho was quietly ' gliding down the
stream of life, obscure, unambitious,
filling no ollice, aspiring to none,
holding no intercourse with men in
high stations, and even unacquainted
with the Congressional Representa
tive of his own distiict. So he might
have lived, and so he might have
died, had not the clarion of war called
all patriots to arms. With devoted
alacrity he obeyed the summons, and
at once gavu all bis powers and all
his exertions to the sacred cause of

career in a humble capacity, his rare
ability was soon recognized, and he
constantly rose from a lower rank to
a higher till he was the Commanding
General of all the forces of the United
States. In every position he was
found to be fully adequate to fill it,
and his eminent fitness appeared
wherever he was placed. He, who
until the breaking out of the great
rebellion, never commanded more
than a company, showed himself
master of the management, evolut
ions, aod direction of hundreds of
thousands of soldiers. Through him,
victory perched upon our banners,
and a glorious success was obtained
for free institutions and an undivided
country. It is no flattery to place
Grant's military genius beside that
of Frederick the Great or Napoleon.
He is beyond question to be ranked
among the most able as well as the
most illustrious Generals now in the
His countrymen, grateful for his
distinguished services, and sensible
of his eminent capacity, called him to
occupy the highest position man can
attain. As President of this great
Republic, he has shown that there,
as in all the humbler positions he has
occupied, he was " the right man in
the right place." One of his peculiar
traits is, that wherever he has been,
he confined himself to his legitimate
duties, executing them strictly and
faithfully, and never producing com
plications, or exciting ill-feeling by
trenching on the responsibilities
belonging to others. It was enough
for him to know his own duty, and
to do it. This was his duty as Cap
tain, Colonel and General, and it has
been, and will be, as President
While be shrinks from any ostenta
tious exercise of authority, yet, where
his duty demands it, he acts with a
discretion and firmness that are irre
sistible. This trait bas distinguished
him, and renders him the very man
with whom to entrust the execution
of the will of an intelligent and free
people desirous of efficiency and
liberty. He has ever conducted him
self with amenity toward all classes,
and borne all his many honors with
an inherent modesty which bas never
for a moment been obscured, dazzled
or intoxicated.
Yet this man, whom it might be
supposed would be un assailed, has
been, and is, the target for the foul
and acrimonious abueof disappointed
offlce-stekers, and sympathisers with
" the lost cause." The Democratic
press has teemed with a virulence not
merely political, but personal and
calumnious to a degree amounting to
outrage. Not only has he himself
been pursued in this shameless
manner, but the sanctities of his
family have been invaded, his
parents, and those of his wife, his
relatives, and his friends have been
subjected to the same detraction.
The vampires of calumny have held
high earnival.but never has President
Grant condescended to give the least
notice to the vile falseholds concocted
against him; sensible that they are
as impotent as they are venomous.
But if Grant is subject to this vitu
peration, scandal and misrepresenta
tion, so were the greatest and most
revered of our former Presidents.
Washington, Jefferson, and Madison
were more reviled and abused than
Grant, aud preservcred the same
silence respecting the slanderers, and
felt for them the same contempt.

the eastern theatres. He worked
hard, but couldn't get ahead, aud he
became discouraged about things aud
couldn't eat much, and his friends
got worried about him. One day,
while reading the Tribune, this poor
young man saw one of Horace Gree
ley's articles advising young people
to " go west, where fortunes awaited
them." The poor player rolled this
bit of advice over in his mind, like it
was a delicious morsel, and hepawued
all his clothes and stage jewelry and
scraped together barely enough, to
take him to the rich lands of the west

The New York Herald says that it
may well be said that murder is a
common crime in that city, and adds:
It comes like an epidemic, bringing a
series of bloody deeds and deaths.
Sometimes the deed is done in open
day, a.zain at night, and at times it is
the climax of a long and intricate
plot that baffles all elucidation. In
tracinir the causes of this greatest of
crimes the records show that rum and
women wield the pistol and knife in
most instances. Very seldom d we
hear of a murder for mere robbery.
Drunkenness and jealousy seem to be
the great propelling forces to the gal
lows. Yet not alwavs to the gallows,
for the process that leads thereto is
te-lious, and the courts are cautious.
But whether the law seizes the crim
inal rightly or wrongly, the victim is
he;e still and the murder is done.
We have had within a year such a
record of murders that, doubtless, the
public has forgotten most of them.
Who knows how many murders are
committed in our midst that the world
never hears of? Would it be rash to
sav that the poor, lifeless corpse that
is'keDt from rotting by the dripping
of the water upon it on a slab iu tne
.Morgue is always -acciueniany
drowned." or that it is a case of "sui
cide '." . There are dark nights on the
wharves, and the noise from the
splash of a drunken man or woman
does not reach where relief comes
from. There are dark nights, too.out
in the river, and neither the cry for
help nor the wail of the victim can
reach tne shore. "An unknown man"
often, it is to be feared, means "There
is a brother murdered in the river."
With these cases, however, the
Morgue, and not the Tombs, is con
cerned. Through the kindness of the
Warden a reporter was recently ena
bled to ascertain the number of pris
oners in the Tombs who are now
awaiting their trial for murder. The
total is twenty-two. In some of the
cases there were circumstances sur
rounding them sufficient to make
men's blood run cold. -

with murder is Stokes,whoshotFisk.

health is not failing, and he, too, is
hopeful. In fact, the reporter was In
formed that there was not a poor
wretch in the Tombs from whose sin

poor consolation of a little hope for

[From the Zanesville Courier 14th]
The party lines are pretty closely
drawn in some parts of Muskingum
county. Theie are some places where
the Democrats can't go Greeley and
the Republicans refuse to desert
Grant. To illustrate the feeling, we
give the following, which was told us
by an eye-witness and a "devout"
man. Not long since a church or
ganization of the county held a series
of meetings, and as is customary on
such occasions, collections for sundry
purposes were ordered. Now it so
happened that a devout man a dea
con whose behind na.oe begins with
S, has gone over to Greeley, and he
was called upon by -the officiating
minister to pass the hat. This was ou
Saturday. The congregation was
large and a "fat take" was expected
by the worthy man who occupied the
pulpit Bro. S. responded to the call.
He took up his "Dolly Varden,"
spread a large bandanna over it and
then started. The first seat was filled
with stauuch old farmers, and S. ex
pected them to shell out liberally.
He knew their pocket books were
plethoric and their hearts full of good.
Their contributious would sink the
handkerchief to the bottom of the
hat, he felt sure. But alas! Not
a man contributed. Bro. S. drew a
sigh and went on, but with no better
success from the occupauts ef the sec
ond seat. The third panned out as
the first two had doue, and so did the
fourth. In short, Bro. S. went the
"grand rounds" and returned to the
stand on which he placed the hat as
empty as when he started. A sigh of
relief escaped him as lie took his seat.
The minister, however, was deter
mined not to be out-done, and the
next day he asked S. to go the
"rounds" again. Slowly the devout
supporter of H. G. arose, going
through the preliminaries the same
as ou the day before. He took up
the same hat, spread over it the same
handkerchief and slowly passed it
before the occupants of the first seat
No contributions. He passed on to
the second. Result, ditto. He ar
rived at the third seat and was slowly
passing the hat under the eyes of the
occupauts, when he was arrested by
the voice of the minister calling out :
"Bro. B.!"
Bro. S. turned.
"Pass the handkerchief alone, Bro.
S. ; or go with your open bands, or

in this congregation that will drop one

The effect cau be better imagined
than described. Another hat was
substituted for S's. Greeley "plug"
and the congregation shelled out au
amount which astonished the whole
congregation. Greeley bat may be a
good thing to cover a sorehead with,
but "shoo fly don't bother me" when
a contribution Is wanted.
How John Spends His Sunday.
It is a custom among Chinese house
servants, says the San Francisco Bui
tetin, to stipulate with their employ
ers for a portion of Sunday, on which
day they visit their couutrymen in
the Chinese quarter, talk over news
from home, have their heads shaved,
go through with their genuflections
aud salaams iu joss houses, smoke
opium, &c, tc, some of them closing
up the day's performances by getting
rid of their week's wages In Chinese
gambling houses, which are so thickly
located aloug Dupont street The
sidewalks swarm with these gregar
ious beings, whose nature is to hud
dle in flocks on the surface and bur
row in bauds beneath. Their dens
are hives of industry on week days
and rooms reeking with smoke on
Sundays. A visitor who ventures
inside bas to step over the prostrate
bodies of opium smokers, aud feels
his way through clouds of moke,
meautime holding his nose against a
sickening stench of fetid breath, de
caying fish, in short a conglomeration
of odors nowhere to be fouud outside
ofa cellar reekiug with the fumes of a
crowd of Chinese. For the sake of
the delectable pleasures to be found
in such places, John frequently refu
ses to take good situations iu the
country ; like Bridget he must be in
town, where he can at least once a
wt ek see his "cousins." The Chinese
have hosts of relatives, uncles aud
cousins especially the latter are
counted by the score. They regard
as cousins those several removes fur
ther off than a white man thinks it
worth his while to inquire. These
"cousins' are generally friends, all
belonging to the same commercial
compaey, aud when they meet on
Sundav the jabbering is energetic be
yond description. All day, and late
into the night, John keeps up his
rounds of visit among bis cousins,
but manages to be on hand Monday
morning, ready for his work, which
he generally performs cheefully aud
with fidelity.

Treat the Cows Kindly. There ar
too many who exhibit roughness tf
treatment toward the cow; and yet
no domestic animals are more sensi
tive or more quickly feel theunkind
ness shown them. They can be made
docile and mild in thier dispositions,
or timid and wild, just in accordance
with the treatment they receive from
thdr herder and milker; and it is a
well established fact that a cow will
transmit her disposition to her pro
geny. A rough, quick tempered per
son should never be employed as a
milker; and one who will, on any
pretence whatever kick or strike a
cow, should be kicked in return, from
the barnyard into the street,, and
never be allowed to return. Gentle
ness will increase the quantity of
milk, as has been shown by a change
of a cruel and irascible milker to one
who practiced kind and gentle treat
ment. It is an injury to cows to be
driven faster than an easy walk, to
and from their pastures. To be ur
ged on by thoughtless boys and thee
perhaps on horseback, is to produce
a fever ond heating of the blood
which is sure to dry up or lessen the
flow of of milk. Cows should al way 3

In the November number of the
Atlantic, Professor John Fiske has a
paper on "The Primeval Ghost
World.'-' It will be in the vein of
the series he published in the same
magazine last year, in which he traced
back so many myths to their origin
in the unending change on the earth 's
surface from light to darkness and
back again. Iuthecomiu'g essay be
gives a curious explanation of the su
perstition so common (especially in
England) that it is unlucky to kill a
robin. Long ago it was believed that
the death of a robin boded some ca
lamity. Still earlier, the calamity
was specified ; it was death. Going
back a few generations more, we rind
that this death was always caused by
lightning. Then we come to the
generation that reverenced the robin
as the bird of Thor, God of lightning.
Finally, at the time when the mind
in its infancy personified every force
especialy a destructive one we
learn that the lightning itself is a red
bird that drops from its beak a worm
that shatters even the rocks on which
it chances to fall. So it seems that
the English peasant woman, warning
her child not to kill the robin, is but
giving the nineteenth century ver
sion of a heathen mythe, born per
haps, ages before Christ was.
Friz Hard. Ben Davis isa goodly
soul, a sound temperance man, always
setting a good example so far as out
siders cam see. But his "time" came
a short time since. He had employed
a carpeuter to make some alterations
in his parlor. In repairing the corner
near the fireplace it was found neces
sary to remove the wainscoting.when
lo ! a discovery was made that aston
ished every body a brace of decanters,
a tumbler and a pitcier were cosily
reposing there, as if they bad staid
there from tba beginning. The
Deacon was summoned, and as he
beheld the bottles, he exclaimed :
'Well, I deolare! that is curious sure
euoucrh. It must be that old Bains
left them when he went out of this
'ere house thirty years ago." " Per
haps he did," returned the carpenter,
"but, Deacon, the ice in the pitcher
must have been friz mighty hard to
stay all that time."
A good, convenient and very effec
tual remedy for the sting of wasps,
bees, etc., is simply to hold any
hollow key over the place stung, press
it hard into the flesh a minute or so,
and when taken off the poison will
tie on the surface of the flesh and do
no harm. A thimble with a tight
top will do, but not so well.
Strange Freak of Lightning.
A young lady, while standinsr in a
window In Morgantown, Butler
county, Ky., received a slight shock
from a flash of lightning. On her
recovery, it wa3 fouud that an atlan
thus tree, standing near the window,
had been accurately photographed by
the electric flash upon iier breasi.
This reminds a friend that in his
youth be was the object of photo
graphy. He bad told bis father that
lie was "a demented old jackass."
This playful remark enraged the un
reasonable father, and he interviewed
his son. When the interview was
over the son felt that he had been
struck by lightning, and that a photo
graph of a man's hand was distinctly
visible but not where could he see
the picture. Lightning is guilty of
strange freaks sometimes.
Goldsmith Maid, the famous trot
ting mare, is said to be stolen proper
ty, and a lawsuit for - her recovery is
impending. It is said that about five
years ago the stables of a great Ken
tucky stock raiser were burned down,
and a very promising young mare sto
len, aud the groom who had charge
of her has just seen the celebrated
Maid, aud is ready to take oath that
she is the stolen animal.
Twenty-five o thirty years ago
Rev. Charles O. Finney, now Presi

on a series of revival meetings in

day a gentleman called to see blm os
