Stedraan, Miss Woolson Blanche Willis Howard, Rebecca Harding Darts, Amelia Rites, Bishop Hurst, besides the noTelisls Howells and Miss O'Meara, and the department editors, George William Curtis, Charles Dudley Warner, and others. The opening article, "Our Summer's Out ing," is an autograpbl.-al story by Kate Field, telling the oomioal and eianperatlng experiences of a vacation party iu a central New York Tillage. Henry James contributes a skilful criticism of the young artint, John 8. Sargent, which is illustrated. The small est of American Republics (Coma Rica) is interestingly described by the author of the article on Chili in the last number, with ao abundance of illustra ions. Rishop Hurst writes of "A lead Portuguese City in India," The fourth part of Mrs. Dafis's article, "Here and There in the South," penetrates into the bayou region of Louisiana, and gives opportunity for many beautiful draw ings by W. II. Gibson. IJliinche Willis How ard's bright novelette, "Tony, the Maid," is concluded. Dr. Coan gives a brief treatise upon '-The Curative I'ses of Water" in its various forms.

The Drawer is opened with an essay from Charles Dudley Warner on Conversation, and con Uines, among other good things, an illustrat ed poem by "Jacob Strauss" aud a page by Du Maurier. Scrilmcr'i Magazine for October has for its leadisg article a richly Illustrated desptip tion of "The Paris School of Fine Arts," by Henry 0. Avery, who is a graduate of that institution, and therefore writes from abund ant knowledge and with true appreciation. The article opens with a brief sketch of the founding and growth of the school, describes the architectural beauty of the buildings, and gives an interesting intiglit into the methods of instruction, and the system of prizes which creates such intense competi tion among the one thousand students. The illustrations were male from tbe handsome photographs of the buildings, which are ex clusively made by tne French government. As a companion article is one by W. C. Brownell, on " French Traits." Another il lustrated artiole is " Caverns." The number contains, also, a thoughtful paper on " Mu nicipal Government," which traces some of tbe existing evils and suggests some reme dies. The Thackeray Letters are concluded, as is also the Japanese Btory begun last month. There are also stories, picms, etc The frontispiece of the October Century, ready on tbe 1st, will be a striking portrait of Harriet Beecher Stowe, engraved by T. Johnson from a photograph by Sarouy. This portrait is apropos of a paper, by James Lane Allen, entitled ' Mrs. Stowe's 'Uncle Tom' at Home in Kentucky," which recounts the life of the Kentucky slave of the old time, in a series of typical scenes, pointing out some considerations which it is thought should qualify Mrs. Stowe's point of view. Tbe illustrations, drawn from life, reproduce characteristically tbe epoch which Mr. Alloa describes. A sketch is also given of the miBtress of that time, aud her round of du. ties. Tbe Lincoln history consists of a con cise recital of the secession movement as ex hibited in Congress, in the Cabinet of Bu chanan, and in the correspondence of cur tain of the Southern leaders. A chapter is devoted to tbe secession of South Carolina, and to affairs in Charleston harbor ; and an other to the Commissioners from South Caro lina, and tbe growth of the movement in the different States is also rapidly traced- The November part will deal with the President elect at Springfield. The war series reaches Sherman's march to the sea and threugh the Carol inns. Among the other articles are " American Foot Ball,'1 "English Cathe. drals," "Twelve Years' of British Song," tt: A singularly attractive frontispiece graces the October Magazine of American History. It is a spirited portrait of Daniel Webster, never before published, from a painting in the Long Island Historical Society, accom panied by a clever character study in the body of this excellent monthly, written by Hon. S. G. W. Benjamin, late United States Minister to Persia. A galaxy of accom pished authors contribute to the October isHue, Ex-President Andrews, of Marietta College, discusses a topic of present interest. "The Admission into tho Union of Ken tucky. Tennessee, and Ohio." It is a curi. ous fact that various errors and discrepan cies exist in histories, cyclopedias, almanacs and school books, concerning the beginnings of these great States, and their entrance into the family, and it is a source of congratula tion that an authority of S'ich eminence and a writer of such force as Dr. Andrews has been persuaded to take np his pen and settle tbe important, controverted points. An other exceptionally able article is by Rev Philip Schaff, D.D., on " The Relationship of Church and State in America" ; James Schouler, the historian, writes on "Histori cal Grouping"; Judge William A. Wood tells the story of "Tbe New Mexico Insur rection of 1846," with a sketch and portrait of Gen. Sterling Price; Charles D. Raker bu a paper on "Tbe First Dutoh Church in Brooklyn"; rrnfriwor Oliver P. Hubbard on An Extraordinary ludian Town." Tie e l itor contributes a clear, vigorously written, ami informing account of "The Origin of New York," illustrated with antique Dutch pictures. There are other bright aud revla ble short papers, and Minor Topics, Notes, and Historic nd Social Jotting, and several able book reviews. The question " What is Evolution? ' is well answered by Profeseor Joseph Le Cotite in the October number ot Thr popular Seimee Monthly; and bis definitions and illustrations will be welcome to many readers who, while familiar with the term, are uncertain as to tbe scope of the doctrine. Another paper bearing on evolution is Professor Morse's presidential address at the American Asso- ciation, suminaniiug what Ameikan xoolog- ists has done for it during the lost ten years. Tbe Hon. David A. Wells gives the fourth paper of bis series on " Tbe Economic Dis turbances since lb"d." In it be shows that the recent decline in the prices of certain staple articles is in inevitable sequence from a great multiplication and cheapening of commodities through new conditions of productions and distribution, which in turn have been mainly due to the progress of invention and discovery. "The Savagery of Boyhood," by John Johnson, Jr., is an instructive study. In the fourth of his "Social Sustenance" papers, Mr. Henry J. I'hilpott treats of tbe -Allotment of Special ties." In "The Oldest Noble of them all," Professor Carl Vogt gives an account of the Bracbiopods. Of curious interest is Miss C F. Gordon Cumming's "Strange Medeciu s." Professor William Thomson, in "Color Bland- ness among Railroad Employes," gives an account of tbe more recent experiences on the Pennsylvania and other railroads in ' I dealing with that evil. There are also ar ticles, on "The Language of the Emotions," " Fetioh-Faitu in Western Africa," "The Theory of Tittlebats," and a sketch of the Swedish scientist, Karl Wilhelin Scbcele. The October nim is st band, with the following compreheufcive table of contents: 'The Continuance of Democratic Rule," by John G.Carlisle; "Education and Lawless- ness," by Bishop F. D.

This city has always been very free from typhoid fever, diphtheria, and similar dis eases, and should be thankful therefore, es pecially when one reads such items as one we saw stating that one doctor in La Salle had under his charge thirteen cases of ty phoid fever and twelve of diphtheria. But there should be a great deal of care exer cised in regard to the location of vaults and cesspools of private drains, as well as the construction and care of wells. An author ity on the subject says : " Let us remember that a well will drain an area with a diam eter equal to twice its depth. Therefore, a well 12 feet deep will drain an area the di ameter of which is 24 feet; that is to say, that it will drain the surrounding soil for 12 feet in every direction. Obviously, then, the privy should be more than the depth of the well away from it, and more than this again if it is proposed to place it on a higher level, which, however, should never be done. Tbe well should be lined inside thoroughly with mortar, so that percolation cannot oo- cur between the crevices of the bricks, and it should be well covered, so that Burface drainage cannot get into it, for you want to drink water that has come into tho well from the bottom, after it has been purified by fil tration through the earth. Thus, then, these are the precautions to be observed in locating and building your well in the coun try.'' It must be remembered, too, that no matter how far carried by water through the earth, a disease germ is not destroyed by its travels, but retains its life and will develope if taken into the stomach.

FOKEPAl'GH'S ORKAT SHOW. Its Progress Through the Country L.ike a Like a Tidal Ware Coming to Ottmra, Thursday, OH C. Swift o'er the course an Adsm, Jr., flies, Pattern mont fair of filial bravery. HfiiUKiuleK the father, Thrasvbulua tbe son, Who bests the world In horsemanship by rid intf tlilrtv-otie! In Pindar's isles to the Olympic games, many stirring things are sunt of the ath letes, charioteers, equestrians, etc., of the olden time. To attempt to versify the brilliant achievements of the wonderful corps of artists comprising the great Fore- iividi show, which Is to visit Ottawa, on Thursday, October Oth, would Involve moie time In review ing and reading up the class. Ics than the Grecian poets devoted to the odes dedicated to the -Kgenltan heroes of all OlyiHpus. Adam Forepaugh, sr., whose generous son forms such a conspicuous part In lis father's great show, may well be proud of the young hero who has won such distinguished honors during the last few years. " Thy noble son I celebrate, Aicbt-Mratus as erst I saw him (rain A brilliant viclory by Olympus' fame." No need of spur on, on he flies, Ills thirty-one Aratiiun suuions luxe me prize. Thus we might speak of each and all of Forenaugh's wonderful new aud matchless features, which constitute the attractions of three times the greatest show on earth." It was the massing of all his stupendous new features In New York, last winter and sprint:, that created so much excitement among the amusement loving citizens of Gotham. When the great shows reach Ottawa, the public w ill see animals enough In the great street pageant alone to make up a full grown menagerie. There will be the be hemoth of the fllle, the white polar bear and the sea lions from the arctics, the Ben gal tigers, Habylonlan Hons, the stately gi raffe, the ponderous elephants, awkward camels, queer buffalo, the mild-eyed deer, the nimble-footed gazelle, and ' Diana's stajr, with wondrous horns of gold," which will skip and gambol as free and unrestrained as Bulwer Lytton's lambs in "The Last Pays of Pompeii." Living wild beasts of a carnlverous nature, and per consequence of a more dangerous kind, will lie restrained, caged or tethered to do no harm. All of this will be perfectly free to the public. For the aalphiblous animals there will be provided artificial pools and miniature lakes as shady as the founts of I star, while the Simla and the Ursa tribes will roam at large and disport themselves among sylvan bowers that far out-fame the "Cronlan Te lop's Dells." The hippodrome track, a quarter of a mile around, is wide enough to run four eight-horse chariots abreast. Here will be revived the classic sports of Old Olymplu, together with the attractions of Adam Forepaugh's New Olympla, his remodeled Wild West, and the famous Custer battle. Three rings, with an elevated stage, will be devoted to the triple circus and athletic sports, In which will appear famous and accomplished artists, male and female, of every nationality. Adam Forepaugh's large and valuable stud of English and Arabian race horses will be the delight of the sporting world They will appear In racing, trotting, and running matches, and also in the great hip pmlromes. Adntn Forepaugh, jr., will ride his famous thirty-one- horse act, the most thrilling ever witnessed, and likewise in troduce the largest herd and the most won derful performing elephants In the world. From the grand stands, seating 20,000 peo ple, the entire entertainments can be seen. The entire grounds are brilliantly Illumin ated at night by extraordinary lights. Cheap excursions will be run by rail. Magnifi cent fireworks at night. There will be no end to the variety of the entertainment. Polo, base ball, tournaments, broadsword contests on horseback, Virginia reel, wrest ling matches on horseback, feats of strength, trials of speed by animals, horses and men, panoramas, pyroramas, gorgeous demonstrations, oriental spectacles and pa rades. In a word, Mr. Forepauge feels himself fully justified in the declaration, and he makes It on his professional reputation and honor, that the public will positively see three times the greatest shou on earth.

IB 8ACL AL80 AMOKO THE PROPHETS? We are very glad to see that friend Sapp of the liepublienn, has so far opened his eyes to the situation that he quotes with strong approval the words of wie who says that the American cotton Industry needs do protection In fact, that, according to the protectionist Idea, the operative of England ought to lie protected against the " pauper lalMir" of America. Now be consistent, and keep right on to the legitimate conclu sion, and say that the cotton Industry which has been protected f r ninety years has no claim to be called an infant industry. Say as Daniel Webster did In 1824, when rep resenting the state of Massachuse6tt8, the great cotton manufactory of the United States, that, in his judgement, the cotton Industry had received enough of protection. Say, as the New England Association of cotton manufacturers did in 1800, " If you will give us free machinery and free oil, we will consent to a repeal of the protec- tectlve duties on cotton." Now the fact Is, that, counting the pay either by the working hours of the year or by the number of yards actually produced, the American factory operative receives less pay than the English. This is affirmed in the papers put forth by the Cotton Spin ners of Fall River. Why, then, In face of the fact that we exported less than a half million of dollats worth of cotton goods In 1884, did we Im port twenty-eight and a half millions worth of cotton goods, and pay over ten millions and a half of duties on them ? Because the British and French and Ger man manufacturers do not have to pay the same prices for their costly machinery that the American manufacturer is obliged to pay. Under the pretext of encouraging manufactures, the essentials of manufac ure are taxed so heavily that the manufac ture is crippled. Give the American man ufacturer the improved machinery free of duty, and he can send out goods Into the markets of the world, not by thousands but by millions of yards not only cheap, heavy goods in which raw material makes up most of the value, but goods of higher grade. Several of the prominent lumber dealers of Chicago, all of them Republicans, were recently questioned as to the effect on the lumber business of the present tariff. The answer was: ''The lumber men do not want the tariff. This tariff was passed in the interest of the men who own stumpage." About two hundred men own most of the great pineries of Wisconsin and Michigan. They put up the price to the lumber deal ers, and the lumber dealers to their custom era. If they are sharp enough to keep the rate just low enough to prevent their cus tomers from buying in Canada to better ad vantage, they can and do raise the price to the dealer nearly two dollars per thousand. The dealer gets even by putting the differ ence on the retail price. As one of them said, "Without the duty we should sell more lumber at a little less profit." Prices are best fixed by the natural laws of trade. Free and fair competition regu lates them better then governmental inter ference. If a Canadian and an American, on oppgsite sides of Lake Huron, are cut ting lumber, the American can lay his lum ber down In Chicago $2.00 a thousand less than the Canadian. That 2 00 advantage, in the end, comes out of the consumer. It is not in human nature not to ask a high price when competition is barred out. Evanston, 111. II. L. B.
