The reputation of Daniel Websta
teems just now to be suffering for

ble. The itching for tribute among the
New York police 'was so strong that
we suppose they would hare taken the
Itch if some ona had brought it along
The appointment of Count' Schova
loft to be governor of the city of War-
saw is significant, coming as it does
in the very height of the heavy Bide
walk season. .
James Whitcomb Riley has had a
brand of cigars "nwned aftor him.
And yet in spite of this people will
persist in saying that goniua is not
fittingly rewarded.
" The Kentucky state penitentiary
jirlded a revenue to the state amount
ing to $07,886.66 during last year over
and above all expenses. An institu
tion that makes such a showing as
that during the business depression of
1891 must have been axoollentiy man
aged. There is an agitation In Milwaukee
In favor of reducing street-car fares,
and it is proposed that people who are
compelled to stand in the cars shall
pay only three cents. The women
will not have to cling to the straps
then. Each man will promptly rise
and give the laJy his seat.
Doctors are roiterating that many
growing glris incur curvature of the
spine by practicing hours each day
without support for back or feet And
they might add that a great many
girls are loft without support after
they grow up because they have prac
ticed piano playing to the exclusion
of more useful it less ornamental ex
ercises. It is to be regretted that there
should be friction betweon the Lexow
committee and its able assistant. Dr.
Parkhurst, but it is fortunate that it
did not occur till the .work of investi
gation was so well advanced. Such a
mass of evidence has been accumulat
ed that differences between the in
vestigators can be of little advantage
to the accused.
Englishmen are considering the
propriety of investigating the bru
tality of American foot ball games.
If this thing does not stop pretty soon
we shall presently throw professional
courtesy to the winds and demand an
investigation of the persons who are
writing the jokes which circulate in
Great Britain, and the publishers who
give them currency.
The Society of the Pilgrim Mothers
In Now York city is now an estab
lished Institution and holds its annual
dinners regularly. The numbar of
women who landed on Plymouth rook
was thirty-two, and they were cer
tainly indispensable to the sixty-nine
men and children. One of the toasts
at the last dinner was "The Gentlemen
God Bless Them;'.' and if it has a
patronizing sound it is best not to say
a word about it.
A Massachusetts ludge has de
cided that it is not highway robbery
if a man's money is demanded by a
footpad and he gives it up without
resistance or rofuaal. That judge
must be on a level of intelligence with
the Chicago grand jury which refused
to indiot an alderman for soliciting a
bribe on the ground that one of the
witnesses who overheard the conver
sation from an adjoining room and tes
tified to its language, had not a gas
light burning to enable him to listen
to what was said.
' It is said that the trial of the false
claimant to the Tiohborne estate cost
the English government $300,000, the
Tichborno estate itself 1 160,000 and
made the revenue of that estate fall

Now it ia reported that tha real holr

be another chapter of thij te'lious his

through an almost endless array of
facts and figures? If so, the wish
will be on many a man's lips that the
(45,000 annual income had been made
to join the rest of the $125,000.
In view of tha existing trouble be
tween Mexico and Guatemala some
curiosity is felt concerning the pur
pose of four English warships that
for a month have been lying idle in
the harbor of Acapulco, Mexico. It
is thought that their presence has
some relation to the possibility of war
between the two countries first named.
Interference on the part of England be
tween Mexico and Guatemala would be
resented by the United States as con
trary to the Monro3 doctrine. It all,
however, is a matter of vague con
jecture, yet it is difficult to' explain on
any other ground why England should
maintain such a force in that part of
the Pacific.
' An English manufacturer advertises
