Lauterbsch, chairman of the Republican County Committee of Kew York, haB withdrawn from Mayor Strong all applications for appointment to office, backed by the Republican organization. The first year of the new tariff yielded a reveune of $79,GSG,4.5G; tho first half year of tho McKinley law yielded $64,786,G41, almost ?15,000.000 in favor of tho new law, as a revenue producer, nearly 25 per cent. A queer will was lately tiled in Duval county, Fla, Jobu M. O'Brien was tho testator, aud he wroto his will with a pencil on a part of the wall besido his bed. It wbb written on a board live feet long by ono wide. The instrument reade thus: "Mrs. Arnold, Clod bless bor I shall hare all 1 leave," The Confederate veterans of North Carolina have adopted a plan for secur? ing valuable history that might ho fol? lowed with profit iu other States. A competent tuau ia each regiment has been requestod to write the history of the regiment in which he served. It is said that much valuable matter bus thus been secured that otherwise would not havo been preserved,?Augusta '?Guronlelo. "HE l l'CR J l.tl I S RlinielU," The State says that the Hon. J. Tay lor Eilysou, one of the most astute business mou in Richmond aud ono of the moBt cautious men ia his state rnonts, gives it as Lia deliberate opin? ion that tho country will now have ut leost two years of prosperity. He be? lieves that the new era will bogiu with aotive businoss during the spring months and that the businoss of the year will be very satisfactory. It is the first time, says our contem? porary, since the panio began that air. Ellyson has seen daylight ahead and the first time he has felt like advisiug bis friends to invest their money. But he believes that the danger line has been crossed and that the way is now olear. The Virginian is glad to hoar these opinions of Mr. Ellyson, and it believes that he is right iu his conclu? sions, Indeed, there are already indi? cations of better times and a healthy return to business in all tho marts and avenues of trade may reasoaobly bo looked for during the spriug months, "UOIV to 1,1 VK LO.fC? Dr. Richardson, an English scientist of high degree, has been giviug to the world some advice which, if followed atriotly, be thinks, there is no reason why a large number of people may not live to see 100 or more years aud yet lose but little of the bloom of youth. He is strong ia the belief that very many people die for inadequate rea? sons, and that it would be an easy mat? ter for us to acquire the art of living much lougor than we do und of getting more physical enjoyment out of life. Briefly stated, as tho Atlanta Jour? nal remarks, ins ideas of the means to be employed to attaiu such au end are : a life of serene cheerfuluess and scien? tific physical culture, lie looks upou extreme physical vigor as an art to be learned like danciug or wbist. The muscles may be cultivated like early vegetables, und with results almost as astonishing. Nobody need be atllicted With a torpid liver, imperfect lungs or flaccid muscles. In every man there is a possible Hercules, Mau may rnako his body a finely strung and exquisitely | poised machine, with every part grace fit! in contour aod in a state of perfect working efficiency, and this will result in the indefinite widening of the span of life. He argues that no man need ' be pnrtioalerly abstentions iu regard to the ueo of any. particular food, all that la neoeesary is the cultivation of a fcaupy disposition, linked with plenty of Bleep, physical exeroiso, and that all appetites shall bo temperately in? dulge i. Breathing should be done soieDtitically and a daily oold bath should bu taken. iii;i:iv<i ro*4ui(i.s<i viii.i. ahi ai> Despite everytbiug that may be aaid to tbo contrary, Tom Reed's Cougress is stdl ahead in the matter of spouding money, Besides spending over $1,009,? 000,000 it left a legaoy to its successors in tho snapo of coutinuiug apprupria tious. It increased the nnnual outluy iu pensions from 890,000,001) to $100, 000,000, the increase to be provided for by tho Congress which succeeded it. In additiou to this many public build iugs were ordered to be ereoted aud the amount of cost fixed, but no money was vntod with winch tbo ?work might bo done. Tho Kepublicans who are endeavor iug to provo that the lest Congroos was auother billiou-doliar Congress aro only hurting themselves and their causo by such a course, bocauso the facts are against tbem, aud "facts aro stubborn thiugs." Cbairmau Savors, of the Ap propriatious Committee, says that tho amount appropriated by tho Fifty third Congress was $000,888,691, whilo tho Fifty second, or Heed's, Congress was $1,027,104,527, and the difference .should not be forgotten. It is shown conclusively that but for tho logislatiou of the Reed Congress, which was bind? ing on tho Fifty-tlur?, the latter body could have reduced tbo appropriations SIUO.UOJ.OOO.
