An old farmer, who lived iu Milton many years ago ami dealt in the only grocery m the town in those days, was often muraled iu looking ovor his grocery bill by seeing tho word "ditto"" occur in it frequently. It was to "1 lb. teaM "to 1 .lb. d'itto." Not having the advantage of a com mercial education, he was puazled over this word ditto." At last ho spoke to hie better half about it. "SiiMtn Jane. said he.

"It'K n cheat, Dau'l never got it" Dan'l started back to the "store" in high dudgeon at having boon charged for things ho had novor re ceived. "See here, Square," sakl ho to tho grocer, "I Hhairt pUuid this kind of hueuu.1.

His wife inquired if he had found out tho meaning of the word "ditto." "I hey," he replied, "and as near as I can get the hang oif t it means that Pui a 'tamel old fool, and that you are ditto.' Boston Horald. Phetocruphliif; (LtrQald. There was something of tho uoblo Roman iu Garfield's pivftlo in fine, the outward evidence of those strong qualities which made him bear up so heroically during those threo mouths of suffering titter the a sr.ssin's bullet entered his back. He woro n slouch hat and was dressed m the customary senatorial prince albert coat ou tho day he came to the studio. Tho hat was held in his hand while I was tak ing the impressions. When I men tioned that I was done, lit1 arose, and placing tho hat carelessly on his head started to walk away. "Stop!" 1 shouted excitedly. "Remain just as you aro!" "But a picture in a slouch hat will not look very statesman like," ho said jokingly. "1 want it just the same," I replied. "Pll mako two. You may havo one, and I will keep tho other." Tho portrait which resulted was the most characteristic of tho man over made, lait tho "undignified" headgear forbade its wide distribu tion as a campaign poster. I am hap py in knowing that Mr. Garfield him self was personally pleased with it. Napoleon Saronv in New York Hor ald. French School. "Every child in Franco at this hour." says tho complacent minister in the well known story, "is study ing the same Imsou," and it is prac tically tho same for every undergrad uate still. Uniform knowledge and uniform precision, with uniform -jutr ties for every yotmg citizen, aro thus secured, and what are commonly reckoned tho "essential qualities of tho French mind aro unquestionably developed. Not only tho symmetry, but tho working of tho system is perfect Tho grando armeo is gone; ov$u tho codo has its uncertainties; now gov ernments and principles com and go, but tho Uuivorsity of France has sat as it was set above the roach of time or politics, as Ixseems tho mighty spiritual organisation it is. Fortnightly Roviow. Irritability In riant. Mr. Ernest Walker of New Albany. Ind., has recently contributed some interesting notes on tho manner in which tho common wiid sour grass as it is called Oxalis srr eta expels its seeds. They aro tlurown to a great distanco by the sudden disrup tion of tho capsulo. Ho finds Oxalis violacon has tho same jovor. The common balsam of our g.-.rden, or as it is sometimes called in American floriculture, "lady slipper," does the same, especially when the seed pods aro grasped. This and tho oxalis be long to tho same natural order of plants. Tho garden balsam dorived its Latin namo, lmpatiens, from this characteristic. Possibly most sio cies of oxalis aro irritable. Meohan's Monthly. Whittling a u Sin. Arabia must bo a heaven for those whoso lives aro made a bimlon to them by tho whistler. Tho Arab maintains that a whistler's mouth cannot be purified for -10 days and nights, and thoy assort of tho whistler that Satan has touched his body and caused him to produce tho offensive sound. Thou thoro aro tho natives of tho Tonga islauds, Polynesia , who hold that it is a sin to whistlo, as it is an act disrespectful to God. Even in somo districts in north Gcrninuy tho villagers declare that if one whistles in tho evouing'it makes the angols woop. Dotroit Freo Press. Tlio Chief End. Dr. Cuylor tolls tho story of a little boy, the sou of good Presbyterian parouts, who was asked tho question in tho catechism, "What is tlio chief ond of man?" and answored it, "Man's chief end is to glorify God and annoy him forovor." "There aro too many mon," says Dr. Cuylor, "who act as if that woro their chief end." Ram's Horn. I'ntrlotlo Soiib Competition.

Jfintli StreoL The Belieme has been reopoaed. i$ej advertisement iu I hi .'--ti 1 - - THREATENING GESTURES. The Origin or Shaking tlio Ollnclird Hand in nn O(oiont'a Face. I would observo that tlio shaking of tho clinched hand as a demonstra tion of hostility has apparently no relation in its origin with tho cus tom of using the fists after tho man ner of the pugilist. Thogosturo is in ilso all tho world over, but the cus tom of fighting with tho naked fists is strictly local and does not appear to havo any very great antiquity. A Frenchman or an Italian will shake his list much more readily than an Englishman, yet neither of those peoples has attained to that pitch of civilization marked by th custom of arriving at an agreement by tho disputants pounding ono another's features. In ovory case, except where the demonstrator has some familiarity with tho art of boxing and has not lost all self control, the fist is not dis played in a manner which suggests its use as a punching organ, but is hold as high as the head, with tho lino of the knuckles vertical, in ex actly tho position, in fact, as though tho fingers grasped a weapon. To shake a spear or a club at a foo is a common way of convoying a threat among all primitive savages, and if no weapon is within reach an expressive pantomime of tho action is performed with the hand only. It is notoworthy that womon and girls (who aro less specialized than men as regards such matters, and whoso inatinctivo actions aro there fore much inoro valuablo to tho nat uralist) not only shako tho fist in this, but goneraUy persist in holding tho hand in somo unscientific posi tion when thoy ondoavor to emulate tho pugnacious sex If tho gesture of shaking tho fist should prove to bo insriuctivo and this point must at presout be held to bo somewhat doubtful it will bo of peculiar interest to anthropologists, since it appears to be derived from tho habit of usiugsome sort of weap on iu striking at an enemy, and tlio great majority of instinctivo acts un doubtedly dato back to a stago of ex istence when no such artificial aids were invented. Ninoteenth Century. Gluttonoint KnglUhmcn. Bluffkius wandored in at tho club the other night and drew his chair closo to tlio fire. "I wouldn't be an Ene-lialntian for anything!" ho ejaculated. "Thoy havo tho most gluttonous appetites nrtrittvs on record." 'You cawn't prove that, bah Jovo 1" said Mr. Algernon Hawkins, who Hved on chops and swore by bar maj esty. "I can," replied Bluukins, with un ruffled composure, "and horo is tho proof. I was riding homo in an elec tric last night Two Englishmen sat next to mo. 4I 'ave just bought a stove,' said ono. 'So 'ave I,' said tho othor. 'But mine is tho beet on earth. It cooks my breakfast in 'alf an hour,' said tho first. Jovo!" said tho second, 'that isn't anything. I can 'eat my stovo in five minutes,' " And evou Mr. Algernon Hawkins acknowledged that the Englishman did have a pretty solid appetite. Boston Budgot English Parson.

Special correspondence. Tho Wilson Bill with all its miquitius and oppression has passed the House. The warning sounded by tho Republican party against the passage of this odious law went un heeded, awl tho Democratic party I with its usual short-sightedueas rushed the bill through the House, The scenes in the corridors of the House and of tho Capitol during the past two weeks havo been pitia ble sights. Delegations represent ing thousands, yes, millions of American workuaeu havo swarmed the corridors vainly imploring Democratic would-bo statesmen to vote against a bill whioh meant starvation to themselves aud fami lies; petitions have boon sent to the democratic chairman of the ..... , . ..... Ways aad Means committee from the iron workers, the coal miners, tho wool growers, and tho laboring people in general, asking that this bill should not pass; constituents of Democratic congressmen have appealed to them to vote against the passage of tho bill. Yet it lias been au m vam. Too odiousness oftno YATIson bill forced tho resignation of ono truly patriotic democratic congressman, Charles Sibiov of Pennsylvania, and yet when his resignation was offered to tho govornor of Pennsyl vania, the laboring people of his district rose in their might and de manded that ho stay in Congress and use his enorgy "to defeat that bill which will cause the closing up of tho factories in that section of the stato aud tho continued idleness of thousands of industrious Ameri can workmou. Tho representatives from New T ey, Massachusetts, New York, n"d othor states, although democrats, vigorously op posed the passage 4.ho bill. They stated that its r- jfego meant sor row, sufforiug, aud continued idle ness to their constituents, yot in the face of all this testimony and all those petitious, a majority of the democratic party succeeded in passing tho bill through tho House. Complaiuts, memorials, and pe titions havo como from ovory cor ner of the United States, not from republican organizations, not from republican politicians, but from the masses of the people regardless of party affiliations, protesting against the passage of the bill; yot thov wont unheeded, aud the democratic party continued in that path in 7", u swinett nearly a .year ago hllv W!1 ruction oi American mtlus- tries aud the oncouragomout of tho consumption of pauper made goods by the American people. It is safe to predict that when this bill, with all its iniquities, goes over to the Senate, that body, n ill see fit to make material changes in it. TLo bill in its present form is objection able to oven the democratic sonatois of that body, and cau never pass n its present "form. The indications at present are that wheu tho tariff bill is returned to tho House, that it will be so amended and changed that oven tho distinguished chaii mau of the Wajs and Menus Con - mittee will not recogmzo it as tt o production of his imagiuary ferti e oram.

The is indicative of intense opposition to the Wilson bill. It shows that down among tho masses of tho peoplo there lias at last grown up a perfect uudorstauding that tho Wilson bill is against thoir interests; that it is tho monstrous bill of discrimination aud stultifica tion ever considered in Congress. It is a bill of deficiencies rather than of revenues, and a bill of discrimin ation rather than of protection. I think that it is perfectly safe to pre dict that wo aro entering upon a series of overwhelming success, which will give us tho House in tho 51th Cougross, the Seuato before tho close of this administration, and a sweeping republican victory in ISiXi." Auother development of tho week which has proven of a vory gratify ing nature to tho republicans is the prospective action which Cougross will tako upon tho bond issuo. The republican party has not coutouded that tho Secretary of tho Treasury undor tho law of 1S75 had not the right to issuo bonds, but thoy hayo hold all along that under that act ho had not tho authority to uso the proceeds from tho sale of bonds to moot tho running oxponses of the government Tho Judiciary Coin mittoo of tho Houso by a voto of niuo io four decided agaiust the authority of Mr. Carlisle to use tho proceeds of the sale of bonds to provide revenue for the running ex penses of the government. There can bo no doubt that if the demo cratic part v had allowed tho Mc Kinlev law to have continued in operation without the agitation of the tariff question that tho govern ment would have had sufficient revenue to not only meet its run ning espouses but w'ould have been enabled to t.ave given to the country increased improvements in public buildings, rivers and harbors and for the continuation of public works.

O. P. At SKK. Lithographic Stooe io ATtxOC. . Professor Johu F. Blandy, of Proscott, has contributed tho lot- lowing to the Mining aud Engineer ing Journal: L:thographic stone has been ft un I .kt several places in Arizona, bet 1 !t,ivo soon samples from only i hat 1 considered oi value. 1 1. uuarrv is situated on tho east siojeof the Verde Range, about two miles south of Squaw Poak; elevation J,200 ft. above tide and about 1,200 ft. above the Verde Val ley and river, 86 miles duo east of Proscott, and about 40 miles by wagon road. Geologically, the atrat are in the Upper Carboniferous, a few hundred feet below tho upper strata visible at that placo. This formation caps this range from a point a short distance north of Jerome (United Verde Coppermine) southward to a point a low miles south of Squaw Poak. a distance of over 30 miles. Tho carboniferous strata aro much broken, but are not showu much out of a horizontal po sition. The highest jsoiat of the range, ou the Black Hills, reaches an elevat'on of 7,400 ft. abovo tide. "Twoquarrios have been opened in tho same strata about 1,000 it part, and tho belt is easily traced from one opening to tho other, and f r somo distance in either direc tion beyond. At the two points they do not however, retain the same thiokuess. At tho eastern opening two layers, each between 3 aud 4 ft. in thickness, have been ex Eosed and in tho other three, the ottom one 3 ft, middle 10 It, and upperouo8 ft. At tho first open ing tho upper layer ha3 not been stripped, so I cannot say whether third layer exists there or not. Tho exposures aro in a very steep moun tain side, about 350 ft. above the bottom of tho side gulch or canyon. Tho quality or grain of tho several bands varies vory little, and the shale very slightly. To an unskill ed eye very little difference Tvould be noticed. The layers havo boon but little affeoted by weathering; in fact it may bo said that the only influence ha3 been to soparato tho layer by vertical cracks into the blocks of varying lengths. There are no horizontal lines visible in the blocks. No doubt when thoy have gone further under tho cover of the hill those weather cracks will disappear. aud longer stones will be obtained. At present those vertical cracks are from 1 ft. to 4 and 5 ft. apart in tho narrow strata, aud from 4 to 6 ft apart in the thickor beds. Much stone has been broken up into frag ments in tho attempt tv get it into slabs, which cannot bo done owing to tho vory conchoidal nature of tho fractures. A good water power can bo had in tho gulch below tho quar ry, and saws could be placed imme diately at the quarry. Probably a large percentage of tho atono could bo utilized. So far vory littlo of the stone has been sent away, and that only to advertise it and in small pieces of 10 to 15 in. face. Largo pieces could havo boon sent but for-the" extreme difficulty of bringing or packing large blocks from such au inaccessible place. Tneowuers and -discoverers have not baa the means requisite to build a road about four miles long oyer the mountain from the west side, which will be neces sary before active work cau be done.. I havo not yet obtained an analysis of it. Many samples of this stone havo been tosted by well known litho graphers, who have spoken highly of its its qualities, some pronounc ing it equal to the Bavarian. I havo seen speeimons of printing and on-..-graving dono with it which are ox- . cellent. Upon one specimen I counted 120 lines of shading to tho iuch, every Hue beiug fine and cloar and without a blot between them. When the quarries are properly opened I am satisfied that stones of 6 and 8 foot square will be obtained, and of any requisite thickness. As . it is not a quostion of quantity or kiud, I think I can look forward to the time when this stone will bo a profitable product of the Territory. Many samples havo boon brought in from other localities 1 do not , know whether from the same strata or formation but all those which I have seen havo boon defective in general character, or else only good -in spots and giving but small niece of fine grain.
