At the present rates he claims the Northern Pacific re ceives more for transporting two passengers from Miles to Chicago than for a full car load of stock. Moreton Frewen, one of Wyo ming's cattle kings, has been do ing yeoman service in England on behalf of Wyoming cattle. At a conference with leading representa tives of the British government he urged the immediate removal of restrictions placed by, the Privy Council on the importation of cattle from Wyoming. He demonstrated the absurdity of the reports of the existence of a cattle disease in Wyoming or the surrounding re gions. His able advocacy will probably result in the objectionable restriction being rescinded, so far as Wyoming is concerned, and this will open the way for Montana to obtain similar relief. An interesting account appeared in a reoent issue of the Helena Herald describing the feast of St. Igjiatius, participated in by over a thousand Flatheads, at St. Ignatius mission, west of Missoula. This mission is in a flourishing condi tian, possesses a large church, col teg«. grist and saw mills and many dwellings. Many Indian children are receiving a sound education and numerous converts havo been made from among the tribe to the Roman Catholic faith. The great success of the mission in its efforts to civi lize these Indians, speaks volun e for the self-denying liboig of ti e priests, who have charge of the to to at to It are is Mr. his in ted the and of no; ties work. Col. Ingersoll should visit this mission while in Montana, and see what believers in a creed can accomplish, and then tell, if he can, of any similar work effected by the organized efforts of a creedless people. A Democrat asks us why we do not defend the Democratic coun ty officers whose official acts have been criticised by correspondents through the columns of our local contemporary. In reply to tliis en quirer and for the information of others who may be disposed to ask the same question we have to say, that while we are unquestionably in favor of the Democracy we do not feel disposed to enter into $ de grading controversy with the per sonal enemies of any county officer, especially in view of the fact that these fierce attacks will eventually defeat the objects which their au thors have in jnind. At the same time our columns arc open to the county officers, as to others, if they seek to defend themselves. If there he any Democrats who are displeased with the actions of any of the present county officers who may be seeking rc-election, we would recommend them to attend the primaries and take a lively in terest in the election of delegates to the county convention, where their dissatisfaction should find proper expression. CAMPAIGN NOTES. | The Irving Hall Democracy held a ratification meeting on Monday evening. Despite the unfavorable weather the hall was crowded and the greatest enthusiasm prevailed. * * - * The Typographical Union in Milwaukee have intimated to the Republican central committee that they will work against the Repub lican party unless patronage be withdrawn from the Evening Wis consin. * * Boston Transcript: An immense majority of the Republicans of . Massachusetts, before the nomina ! tion, believed Mr. Blaine an unfit 1 man for the Presidency. The fact i of his nomination did not transform him into a fit candidate. # * * Boston Journal: Any Republican who 'chooses may vote for Mr. Cleveland for president, but if he j does he must vote for him as a i Democratic candidate upon a Dem ! " crati , c T"/ 1 ' he S" knowledge that he is helping the j Democratic party into power. To delude himself or others with the ! notion that he is "promoting the objects" of the Republican party ! , when c0,,, |î , " ln K W | U J **» enc '" ies i to accomplish its defeat is neither : ingenious nor wise. * * Pioneer Press: This is not a good | year for political prophets. Pre I dictions of the outcome of the Pres idential election are made with a wide margin of qualification. There is the usual froth aud sputter of confident bluster in the gossip of the political headquarters, and in the forecasts of interviewing states men, but careful journalists and political managers with a reputa tion for foresight and accuracy to lose are cautious on both sides about making definite claims. * * * . The Nati( ? nal Republican com rmttee promised the Central Labor Union that they would not give any | patronage to the New York Tribune, ! but declined to sign any paper to that effect. The typographical ! union re t ? olv u ed thatif the signatures j are not forthcoming the union will | continue to boycott the Tribune, and use all their political influence political to reduce Mr. Blaine's majority, and carry the war into the ta ! l tower more fiercely than ever. Tliis senti ment was received with several rounds of applause. * * * Courier Journal: It is amusing to note the course of the Blaine pa pers with reference to George Wil liam Curtis. They pretend to sneer at him as a "dude,"''Pharisee," etc." and to laugh at his bolt, but obey daily devote their editorial columns to attempts to destroy bis influence. It is odd that if the revolt of the Independents is of such little im portance, it should be given more space on Republican editorial pages than any other subject. The latest arguments wbieh the Blaine organs are using against Harper's Weekly is the fact that it spoke favorably of Mr. Blaine, in some respects, before his railroad record had been dis closed ! * * sic New York Graphic: To allay the fears of the 3un as to Gov. Cleve land's political sentiments we re mind it that the Governor neyer voted any but the Democratic ticket in his life; that he was elected mayor as a Democrat by the Dem ocrats of Buffalo; that he was elec ted governor as a Democrat by the Democrats of the state; that he was nominated as a Democrat by largely more than three-fourths of the rep resentatives of the Democracy of the United States, conceded to be the ablest Democratic convention ever assembled, on the second ballot, over such men as Bayard, Hen dricks, McDonald, Randall,. Thur man and Hoadly, after a patient and prolonged hearing of every thing that could be told against him. OIT HI» Guard. [Exchange.]. The other day a visitor surprised a di» tinguished professor, who was saying to his baby, "On-ny, no-ny, e musty tick his little footsy tootsies."

By 13 fires alone $3,250,000 worth of property was destroyed. The aggregate fire loss since January is $62,550,000, an increase of about $10,000,000 over the corresponding seven months in 1883, a year of ex traordinary fire waste. I a • I ÏIIE NE W VOl Uv GIRL 5right Kinds and Healthy Bodies of the Girls of Gotham. Improvement In Tlielr mode or Lire —Erauty at a DUeount—muscu lar Dexterity at a Premium* [Cor. New York Mail and Express.] The New York girl is decidedly coining to the front. I mean the gilded girl, the girt of leisure. And wi en I say New York, of c urse I mea n what Hon. Billy Maloney, ever since he went to Paris and Lack on a free pass, has called "the city and its onveerongs." Only a few years ago she was practicing the Gre cian bend, and seemed likely to descend to utter imbecility ; but all Ibis has changed, and she has becomo an amateur athlete. She is («ginning to crowd her big brother in the field of sport Brooklyn parks are not like the parks in N«. w York. Our parks are managed on the princi) le to the on Ilia's warning to her I abe: "You may look but you mustn't touch." For every other bush there is a warning sign: "Do not p : ck the flowers or leaves." If a lady ,(sts her.-elf on a bench si e will be insulted by a loaft r, either in uniform or out of it If a man stej s on the grass he is likely to be dragged to prison. Lut in Brooklyn the parks are manageI by the j eoplo, and the beautiful lawns ou every fine day are crowded with young people at play. On the afternoon I sj eck of there were as many girls as boys on the green sward in Foi t Greene. The oiler girls, young ladies of marriage able age, were ] laying lawn tennis, and play ing ft with young nun and with a vigor that required the agility cf gymnasts. When tney leaped they si rang clear t if the ground, and lauded as lightly as birds; when they ran it was with a free and graceful movement When they struck at a ball it was with a How that gave assurante of quick judgment, strong muscles, and trained sight. Near by, I s:.w three girls of 15 or 1Ö practicing a run ning jump. Further on were some other tenuis flayers, w ho in an intermission bad started a game of tag. Do you remember how the average girl used to play tag a few 3 *ears ago? She would run, screaming at the top of her voice, with a mincing step from under aisurd eutrngliug skirts, until her short bre ath gave way, and then on being t< uched by ber equally b> sterical companion, would sink treat bless upon a seat or upon the gross. That is not how these young women did it. Tfceir dresses somehow produced the the effect of swiftness, aud they bounded lightly over tbe tuif with fa'ms closed and held at the breast, with lips shut and eyes a flume w i:b fun. They doubled, danced tan alizingly before the one who was "it," dodged like wrestlers aud shot away like deer, and never did oue of them otter a scream. Speaking of wrestlers, I know a young woman, cr rather girl, daughter of a widow well known in society, who can throw any girl in the gymnasium s « attends, and who has thrown her brother, three years her senio", so often that he will not let her abuse him any longer. And she can s ng charm ingly, play the piano beautifully, dance de I-' tfnlly, and speak French and German better than f." A Italian. Then, again, the other day, I met a Wealthy man whose name is familiar to all New Yorkers, who told me that every morning he fences with his daugh ter half an hour. "I am the only one in our househol 1 with wh. :n she can fence with any pleasure," said be "Her mother, whom I taught, canuot pretend to stand against her, and my eldest son is clumsy beside her. Her wrist has be come like iron, and her muscles are like steel. It is quite a feat to pink ber, or throw her foil from her hand." Where is the country girl who can swim like tbe pvpi's of that uptown school which was maintained so many years near Central I ark, and is still kept up for aught I know? The girls have begun to save life already from the water. It w as a little miss of good belongings in Harlem who dragged a lad from Harlem river last summer. Where is the country girl in these latitudes who can skate like the womtnlv, well-rounded little bruuette in short shirts who carried off the palm r.t the roller iltr.ting-rirk 1-st winter? Where is the farmt r\. daughter who knows the points of a Lorse like the wotron who figured conspicuously at last wetk's liorss show? At sight of a bor.-e, did they say: *'Oh, what a perfi ctlv lovely creature! O, isn't he nice? Isn't he just too splendid?" Not at all. They criticised the width of his breast, the size of his bead, the taper of his legs, the hoofs, joints, nostrils, Lack, and, in short, every point the horse has got or had misse I, and all in technical terms, talk ing as confidently with a horse-fancier or a jockey, as one lady use t to talk to another about the number of flounces on a fashion able skirt. I looked nt them in cmnzoment, ani when I got away it struck me it would he interest ing to describe what sort of girls they were, so that the public should know them when it saw them. But I canuot remember thattbere was any marked peculiarity iu their apjiear auce. They were or.inary-looking, fashion able girls, some richly d:essed, and some in , ; , ! : ! ! < j I sober black. Some were matrons. In thea- i tre or church you could not bell them from the others. You know many of their names, however. They are the same names of those of the gentlemen who delight in four Iu hands, who figure at polo, who are to be found at the hunts on O.auge mountain, and at East Rockaway, und whose steeds bring laurels back from England, or carry them eff at Monmouth park. But these women and girls know more about horses than is needed in discussing tbe points of one. They can and do ride them, not like the pretty German misses whose fiaxon braids rise and fall with tbe railing motion of tbe flat-backed horses in tbe riding-school across tbo Hud son, but mounted on wiry hunters and dash ing at full speed after the hounds, over ditches, fences, and walls, across the plains of Hempstead. But there are seme things she cannot do. She cannot play polo nor i ide a bicj cle, be cause it is not likely that fashion or custom will ever smile upon females who adopt the masculine way of using a saddle. Thank heaven, she can never spar or fight. It is true that some creatures of her sex fre quently perform as pugilists in the sporting saloons in towns, but those who have seen their exhibitions are mere tban ever per suaded that cur most athletic sisters will never practice with the gloves. Tbe male pugilist often receives the hardest blows on his chest, and is thankful when be feels them laid there; but a stout blow on tbe feminine chest would disable a woman, and in all like lihood lead to grave ailments. Besides, brutal sport is not what woman is likely to encour age in her pastimes, an disfigurements and scars will never be sought by her. Curl Your Mustache. [New York Sun.] At a late hour last night a young man left a chair in a fashionable up-town barber shop with his handkerchief to his mouth. "Cut him?" asked tbe next customer. "No; he's got his mustache in curlers." "Eh?" "He's got a mustache which naturally droops. He wants the ends to curl up, so we put a couple of these on it." The barber produced two bits of rubber tubing an inch long and a quarter of an inch thick. In oue end was a hole with a small rubber ring through it. In the other end was • slit "We roll the wet mustache around this tube, and after making oue turn around all with tbe ring, slip it into the slit That holds the hair in the curled position until morn ing, when he takes off the curler. The hair will stay in shape for a day or two. If ap plied often enough it makes a permanent curL We charge twenty-five cents for a pair of curlers and five cents for applying them- latest thing for mustaches." A Hlsky Experiment. [Philadelphia Call.] City Dairyman—John, the pigs look rather queer. Have they been fed?" John—Yes, sir. Dairyman—What did you give them? John—As there wasn't nothing else, sir, I gave them the milk that was left iu tho cans when the meu got hack from the city. Dairyman—Great Josephus! What have you done? Ruu for the doctor. A crematorium built in the time of the Roman invasion has been discovered in the city of L:n:olu. England. A Grtoc OF REAL DISTRESS* in Appeal to Local Pride, and tk« Desalts Thereof. [San Franche.) Post] One of tbe moat singular traits of onr com mon humanity is tbe fact that no matter bow arctically indifferent the citizen of a particular locality may be to bis neighbors while at home, be no sooner becomes a t rav ier than his local pride sticks out like a peg 3n a hat rack, and at a minute's notice. The other morning, while the east-bound overland was stopping at Council Bluffs, a oiau suddenly climbed into one of the Pull man cars, aud exclaimed in an anxious voice: "Is there a southern man aboard?" "There Is, sab. From Nothe Carliny, sah I" responded a gentleman attired in a black suit, velvet vest, and leg boots, those ante bellum landmarks of tbe sunny south. "Then I appeal to you to aid a case of real distress," said the stranger. "I give a dollar myself," and he dropped a dollar into his own bat. "I'm from Florida, sah," sai l a thin man farther along, "and I make it $3." "If there's anybody here from Wisconsin,* said a stout-looking party in jeans, "suppose we subscribe (8 apiece." "It's a go!" shouted a fellow-citizen to tbe last speaker, pulling out his pocketbook. "New York says (5," snapped ou f a stylish lookingtyoung fellow, flipping a gold piece down tbe aisle. "8o does Massachusetts," coolly chimed in * Boston man, dropping a greenback into the delighted collector's bat. "Gentlemen," quietly announced a solid looking passenger, "the Keystone state pities fie starving family, or whatever it is, just H«>." and he couuted out the coin. "Illinois goes that one better," and a trav eler with a "wheat futures" look fished out three fives. "Just pass this up, please," said a St. Louis pork packer, handing tbe Chicago man a twenty, with a grim smilo. "The poor widow catches Utah for $35," said another man, amid a general smile. "Put Wyoming down for thirty," and a big cattle ranger began unwrapping his wallet. "The Silver state says thirty-five," shouted i big fellow with a sack of specimens, who had been unstrapping bis money belt. "If the returns are all in," finally said a man, with a big felt bat and a nugget breast pin, os be stood up and looked around calmly, U I should like to ask if there is another Cali fornian present?" There was no response. "All right," said the gentleman from the Comstock. "Then I'll subscribe for him. Here's $100 from the Sunset state," aud he lumped the gold into the already heavily weighted hat, just as the whistle blew and the collector started for the door. "Who did you say aU that money was for?" shouted several, as the train slowly pulled hut. "What f..r? AVhy, for beer!" yelled tbe man with tbe hat, aud at the same moment about a ddzon more old bums and tramps crawled out from under a flat car and executed a wild scalp dance of joy as the train disappeared around the curve. Bccchcr*» Luxurious Habita. [Ithaca Journal.] Mr. Beecher has directed bis manager, Mr. Pond, to book an extensive lecturing tour for next year. Mr. Beecher's salary is $30,000 per annum. He averages to receive double this sum from his lectures and a large ad ditional sum from his pen. He is not riçh, however. He keeps open house with his son, with whom he reside?, and gives, loans, in dorses, and docs other unbusiness-like things constantly at a heavy loss to his treasury. It is said that beyond his farm at Peekskill, tbe lion e and stock thereon, an 1 his library and b ic-a-brac there and at Brooklyn, the great word-painter has nothing to show for his large income for each of very many years. His library is so large that it is now being catalogued with a view to soon making a sale therefrom.* He has expended, it is estimated, $1 GO, 000 in books, and as many more have been given him by pub'ishers. His house at Peekskill, built not long since, Mr. Beecher says has cost him $40,000. Oth ers who watch business matters closer and are familiar with its growth say $70,000 would be nearer the correct sum. His cows are all Ahlerneys, aud the herd is believed , to be worth $15,000 to $18,000. His farm and its manner of running and open hos pitality is enough in itself to absorb a large ; income. It is yet somewhat incumbered. His , collection cf brie a-brac would make a large ! en 1 valuable museum. Fine prints, bronzes, : painting, statuary—anything beautiful in ! shape or color—finds a worshiper in Mr. ! Beecher, and it is said that he cannot go through the streets of New York or Brooklyn without becoming a ; urchaser as heroically < as he may labor to resist and avert bis eyes j from tempting show-windows. Ice Cream T!:nt YV111 Last a Year. [Exchange.] I .1. M. Horton, ice cream (exhibiting a brick about 8x4xl> inches). Now, that is patented Not the size of it, nor its shape, nor t ie n ay in whicü it is made, but tbe manner of doing it up. All of us manufac turers have to pay a royalty for the privilege of wrapping this lump of ice cream in white paper a.id re-freezing, or, as we say, super freezing it. But I reckon is is worth it. i This blick is half chocolate, half vanilla. I cau put it away, aud one year from to-day it will be as goo 1 os it is now, except that the flavor will not be quite so perfect. This is the way we do up ocean steamship sup plies. You know they all take cream enough from this side to last them a round trip. Can't afford to buy it ou the other side; it costs them four times as much as it does here. Great demand for cream this year. What is it made of? Well, if you take some persons' word, it is made from oleomargarine, oleo margarine oil, lard, corn startch, flour, eggs and a lot of other stuff. That's what I hear, aud fellows are coming in here nearly every day to sell me something brand new and cheap. I find that pure cream is the best and cheapest thing to use. There is no harm iu tbe coloring and flavoring matter used. A Dakota Town. [Chicago Herald.] "We've got a beautiful town," said a Da kota man at the Palmer house yesterday. "Eighteen months ago it was a bare prairie. Now we have 2,000 population, forty stores, seventeen saloons—elegant, some of them— an opera-house, four variety shows, eight beer gardens, a dime museum, three gam bling houses, thirteen hotels, two breweries and tbe stock for another one all sold, a distillery, a paid police force, and two steam fire engines. " "How many churches and schools?" "Oh, ye ; aud they're talking about build inn- a chu ch an 1 a school." .Notice of Assignment. Notice is hereby given thut on the 7th day of July, A.
