Hush the baby stands alone— Hold your breath and watch her; Now she takes a step—just one — Wavers, stops.—quick, catch her! Courage ! Life's first step will cost : Now again she's trying— One, two,—three! site walks almost, Trembling, stumbling, crying. Precious baby ! up once more— Tiny feet advancing, Little arms stretched out before, Bright eyes upward glancing, Where mamma, with cheering smile, To her darling beckons, Softly coaxing baby, while Her first steps she reckons. One. two, three—Oh! she will walk Now before wo know it; Hear her sweet-voiced baby talk, Little bird, or poet ! Prattling, toddling, there she goes, Stepping off so proudly— Turning in lier untaught toes, Pleased,—then laughing loudly. Fiist exploit of self-control; Now she's growing bolder, Strength and courage yet unspent, One cm hardly hold her— She so presses to advance In her baby-learning— ru!is so—Ah ! by what mischance Is this overturning? There lies baby on the floor, Sprawling, rolling, screaming! Are life's first attempts so pool? Baby was but dreaming! When she felt so hold and strong; Gladly now she's clinging To the one whose soothing song Back her smile is bringing. Hurts arc cured by mamma's kiss— Brave again as ever, See, the plucky little Miss Makes her best endeavor: Walks right off— the darling pet— Kush now to caress her ! Come what will of first steps yet, All good angels bless her. —Elizabeth C. Kinney, in St. Nicholas. WASHINGTON LETTER. (From Our Regular Correspondent.) Washington March, 31 —The plan of the Randall men is, it seems, to offer a compromise based upon the Ohio democratic platform. The Morrison element insists that some positive action upon the tariff is ncccessary to save the party of the west. They de clare that the oveiwhelming senti ment of the west demands some thing tangible in the way of tariff legislation. The protectionists submit the patent fact that the democrats are powerless now to enact any such legislation; that an opposition Senate and republican President will certainly defeat any act the House may pass looking to tariff reduction. But to this the Morrison men reply that the dem-j oeratic House must evince its sin-! ccrity of purpose and leave the! responsibility of defeating reform legislation with the republicans. The Ohio platform declares sub stantially for a tariff laid for reve nue with incidental ' protection; for the fostering of domestic in dustries and against monopolies. The Randall men arc entirely will ing to stand upon this position, and the suggestion of compromise' em braces the idea of a positive declar ation of the democratic House that the party pledges itself to tariff re form according to the .Ohio plat form. This pledge it is arglted, will be just as binding and effective as a passage of a bill that cannot be come a law. It will give the coun try assurance of a tariff reform if the democrats come into power, and will heal all present internal differences and permit the party to enter the campaign united and harmonious, Palmistry has again become quite a craze and young ladies are study ing up the subject and testing their knowledge by frequent examina tions of their neighbor's palms. The wife of a prominent eastern Senator had a fortune-telling party at her house the other night and the tracing of life-lines, heart lines, and head lines went on briskly for several hours. The hostess, it is said, is well up in for tune-telling lore, and as she lias a good deal both of the siren and of the sibyl in her nature, she con trived to impart not a little of her enthusiasm to her guests. To have their whole future laid hare be fore their eyes is the ardent de sire of most very young people—to throw an impenetrable veil over their past is the equally strong de sire of the old. As palmistry deals principally with future and reveals nothing of the damaging past, it is likely to become as popular as it is already interesting. At a meeting here Tuesday of representatives of the colored news paper press of the country an ela borately drawn resolution in favor of Gen. Logan for the Presidency was brought forward and urged with much persistence. After an exciting and animated discussion the resolution was tabled, as it ivas the sense of a large majority that it was not expedient at this time to undertake to commit the colored people to any particular candidate. The resolution in favor of Gen. Logan is thought to have been of white paternity, and was evidently worked with the idea that it would be carried through with a rush. But it was shown in the discuss ion that the colored journalists were learning politics very fast and did not propose to be tied to the tail of anyone's kite. Many well-known people have left the city during the past fort night for the fashionable spring recuperative resorts of Fortress Monroe, Lakewood and Atlantic. City, and it is said that dancing and other amusements somewhat frowned upon in the city during Lent are indulged in at these com paratively distant sanitariums to a moderate extent. HERE AND THERE.

Their catch weighed 2,100 pounds, the fish runuiug from three to ten pounds each. Detroit has been boasting of its oldest inhabitant. There seems to be no doubt that lie is 105 years old.

The President of the Areopagus,. the Supreme Court of Appeal in Greece, receives $1,280 a year, the Vice-President $1,080, and the IS assistant Judges $970. The lower order of Judges get from $200 to $250. The Government admits that these salaries are inadequate, but appar ently cannot at present pay more. Arizona quail are very susceptible to demestication. Although very wild when first caught, kindness soon subdues them, and they may bo handled with ease. A. G. Buttner of Tuscou had a pair last season that raised, a brood of 11 young ones. These were easily tamed, and after ward set free. Whenever frightened they invariably seek the house for protcc.ion. Upon the river front of the city of Portland. Ore., recently, a Hock of ducks were seen catching fish. A crowd of hun gry gulls, who could not dive, were on the watch, and the moment a duck came to the surface the gulls strove to steal the li>h. In most cases the ducks managed to flip the fish down his throat. When a gull did get a fish from a duck all the other gulls chased him and tried to share in the spoil. According to the Pall Mall Gaz ette it is a carious fact that no senior wrangler of Cambridge has ever attaineu to political eminence—at all events of those elected since 1748, the year from which re cords of the academical contests began to he regulary kept. In truth, a decided minority of the names on the list cf senior wranglers is to he found rewritten in the pages of general history. Ernest Whitehead captured a young seal near Anacapa Island Cal., re cently. and took it on hoard his sloop. As the vessel started the mother seal was no ticed swimming about howling piteously.

Soon alter com ing to anchor the seal re-ponded to its mother's calls by casting itself overboard all tied up as it was in thu sack. The mother seized the sack, and with her sharp teeth tore it open. 8he had followed the sloop 80 ni;lc3. POUND DROWNED. Daath of Tlnans McSaiw of Jumtion. On Sunday Walter Matheson, coroner of this county, received a telegram from Paul McCormick & Co., notifying him that the body of a man had been found that morning on Buffalo creek, a stream which empties into the Yellow stone about four miles above Junction. On Monday m miing tiie coroner went down to Junction, impanelled a jury and went out to the creek where at Bracket's sheep ranch, about eight miles from Junction the remains were found. The body showed no marks of violence and was in a remarkably good state of preservation. Several persons present fully identified the body as that of Thomas McGraw. After viewing the remains the jury adjourned to Bracken's ranch where an inquest was held. The evidence adduced showed that the de ceased was last seen at Junction on the morning of the 25th of l'ebiuary las!» He had been drinking considerably the evening before and slept that ntght at the residence of L. E. Stevens. Next morning he started on horseback for Bracken's ranch where he was employ ed as a sheep herder. This was the last ever seen ot him until his body was found, last Sunday morning. The same morning that he left Junction his horse came in alone to Bracken's with its lariat trailing throughly drenched with swimming Buffalo creek. At this time the creek ordinarily a very small stream was very swollen and rushing with great force. Deceased was »single man and was supposed to be formely a member of "M" Co. 2nd cavalry from which it is supposed ho was a 'deserter. The jury found that the deceased came to his death by being drowned on the 25th of Febuary 18S4 in Buffalo creek. The Jury was composed of George H. Hughes. James N. King. H. M. Wil liams, W. E. Barbour, L. E. Stevens and Moses Gales. The remains were brought to Junction and interred in the cemetery at that place. McGraw was well spoken of by his associates and was generally regarded as his qwa worst enemy.
