Mr. Ilitrgins, the recent Ap-
poiutmeut Clerk of the Treasury
Department, is preparing a book
of interest to the whole country.
It shows how much nepotism
there was displayed by certaiu
Republicans. In his labors Mr.
Iliggins has the approbation of
President Cleveland, who by his
refusal to appoint a brother of
Senator Blackburn to a lucrative
office, clearly and with emphasis
rebuked this spirit ot nepotism.
A Times-Democrat special says
the record dates back to 1831,
when those burning statesmen,
Jas. G. Blaine, J no. A. Logan,
Vm. French, Assistant Secretary
of the Treasury, and others of like
kidney, were holding the reins;
and it is instructive to note the
Success with which they boomed

the same to which they now are
so hysterically devoted. Take
the case of the magnetic one, for
example. Here is the list. A

Of course. Mr. Iliggius is getting
himself thoroughly disliked by
showing on these thtugs. Thoi
President has ulautcd himself
squarely on civil service reform,
the esteemed mugwumps above
mentioned are patronizing him
with their approval. What makes
them writhe iu agony uutil they
absolutely lose their elegaut man
ners is to find that Mr. Iliggins is
leaving mighty little grouud for
civil service reform to stand upon.

A nephew in the Census Bureau,
a lieutenant of muriucs, aud a job
tisaus he is preparing, and the
record of nepotism now nearly
ready to go to press, it begins to
appear that what the mugwumps,
Iudepeudeuts, tc, have most to
dread is a strict application of the
Presidents policy. The trouble is
that the mugwumps' interpretation
of civil service reform is to keep
all Republicans in, whereus Mr.
Iliggins' construction of the theory
is that the rascals and imposters
must be turned out. Hence these
tears. The Democracy, however,
have expressed themselves pretty
plainly as not being in sympathy
with the mugwumps, aud the fact
that Mr. Iliggins is incurring cen
sure and villitlcation from such
quarters is tho best possible evi
dunce of his efficiency.
Jlcxlcaa Progress.
Minister Romero thus describes
tho progress that is being made iu
public sentimeut in Mexico touch
lug the friendly feeliug of tho peo
pie of that country toward the
United States : "It has been true,
aud to a limited extent is yet true,
that the masses of my people are
prejudiced against the people of
the United States. They once la
bored under tho impression that
any eucouragemont of friendly ro
latious with this country would
result in an abridgement of their
liberty, for it will take many more
years to blot out tho memory of
Geu. Taylor. They were fearful
of conquest and resultant annexa
tion. But the railroads are rapid
ly chancint all this. The masses
are learning that the American
people only want their trade, not
their territory, and almost a com
plete revolution in sentimeut has
taken place. This business of
railroading Is yot a novelty to our
people, and there ought to be
some charity exercised if we have
not yet adjusted our own laws,
our traditions, and our prciljudiecs
to the new order of things. The
time has almost arrived when
Mexico and the United States may
clasp hands over a commerce that
will have no equal ou the earth."

Natchez Democrat.
A change from tho all cotton
! system of, farming to a diversified
course, by which the fanner can
gA the cash for his products from
month to mouth, aud which will
put aud end to the present unsat
isfactory aud ruinous system of
depending on advances of the
merchant for the entire supply of
the farmer for food, has been long
advocated through the columns
of this paper. To show that iu
other sections of tho South a
change is going ou, we quote the
following from the Nashville
Union :
Presideul Thomas had not been
on the top of Missionary Ridge
since the spring of 1883 uutil yes

had his headquarters and the
peach tree where Geu Grant was

latter point one can now toe farms

about a dollar a day for his
This land was covered with un
derbrush only three or four years
ago and is now ouo vast orchard
aud vineyard, drawing thousands
of dollars from tho East.
"Let us figure a little on it," said
President Thomas. There were
three car loads of berries shipped
from Chattanooga east over our
road yesterday; there aro about
400 crates loaded iu each car, aud
there are twenty-four quarts or
six gallons lo each crate. The
laud that these strawberries aro
raised on was never cultivated
until a few years Hgo, when farm
ers from Indiana, Illinois and Ohio
came there, bought the land for
about $ an acre aud turned it into
strawberry patches, peach orch
ards aud vineyards. Now as soon
as they finish picking tho straw
berries the pcachea commence to
ripen and they gather tho crop,

It presented un assemblage of pro
ducts of the soils and mines of the
South and of the country, such as
had never befjre been gathered
together, and its display and utili
zation of electricity for illiimiiiii
Hon and other economic purposes
was grand. Iu these respects it
was pre-eminent, and to record
such an achievement is but sim
ple justice.
If there were mistakes mado by
the management or if there were
defects in their work, it is not our
purpose to discuss tnein here.
Mistakes, tinder all the circum
stances, were to be expected, aud
the work done must stand on its
That it was a financial "failuro
goes without sating, but it did not
destroy its merits as an Exposition;
but that it was such a failure must
ever be a matter for regret to the
peoplo of New Orleans. Unfortu
nately for its success, it was too
far from tho great centres of pop
ulation and the thickly settled re
gions of the Union to give it con

The class of small farmers who
have settled up Missionary Rid go
and so many other portions of
Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia,
will certainly follow the railroads
and settle iu other localities.
They will come into our country
and reap the rich harvests that
are neglected by those who now
neglect the opportunity, and when
a few of these enterprising aud in
dustrious men have shown that
competence and fortune is the re
sult of this kind of small farming,
they will be followed by those
who now have the opportunity of
leading off in this profitable class
of agriculture
Every railroad that has through
connections finds it to its interest
to encourage the settling of the
country through which it passes
by this class of farmers, from the
fact that shipments of fruit, ber
ries, grapes, am) the product of
track farme? is more remunerative
thau that ot cotton and what are
called staple crops. To a country
which is so favorable for this spe
cies of farming it is therefore
pretty certain that men will be in

residents will not avail themselves
of the advantages they have with

A R01IUIE. .
Halifax, N. 8., May 27.-Tho
Herald, this morning publishes
some details of the romntie curcer
of Adele tho duughtes of Victor
Hugo. The facts uro furnished by
Robert Mutton, Queen's counsel
a well known criminal lawyer, who
acted for her professionally on
several occasions. Adelc's story
as told by herself, is as follows :
When a mero girl living with her
parents in Brussels, sho became
acquainted with a young man, one
Pinaen, belonging to a wealthy fain
ily then staying in Brussels, nnd
fell madly iu lovo with him. He
appeared to bo equally infatuated
with her. They became formally
engaged, aud wero secretly mar
ried, as sho believed. Owing to
the opposition of the family the af
fair was kept private, and ho
promised to make her his wife
publicly iu due time. Meanwhile
he was gazetted lieutenant in the
British army and ordered to Hali
fax. Just previous to this he
wrote to bcr to moot him in Lon
don, where they would be formally
marriod, but before she reached
there Piuson had started with his
regiment for Halifax. She return
ed to Brussels and shortly after
ward clandestinely left home, re
solved to follow tho man sho loved
so mildly. Arriving in New York
sho made her way to Halifax and
lived there for nearly three years,
rinson proved recreant, but sho
seems to have followed him day
and night, and frequently declared
to the family with whom sho
boarded that he should never mar
ry another woman while she lived
She was eccentric, and never went
out unless deeply veiled. At night
sho went out alone in disguise.
wearing a high hat, top boots and
carrying a cane. Piusen repudiated
any knowlege of, or connection
with, Adele lingo, and had not
been here long before ho became
engaged to a daughter of J. W.
Johnston, then Premier of Nova
Scotia. This coming to Adelc's
cars sho confided tier history in
professional confidence to Mr.
Matton, and that gentleman sent a
letter to the Johnson family, and
they immediately broke off all sod
el intercourse with Pinsen. Lieut,
Pinsen left Halifax with his rcgi
ment for Barbadoes and Adele lol
lowed him. Some years ago she
became iusauo, nnd was placed in
a private asylum, either in New
York or Boston. The fate ot the
man who betrayed her is un
almost rcachiur' the fk'iirea of the
largest crop they ever raised. The
world looked on wondering what
uew revolution in tho beet sugar
industry hnd arisen that enabled
the fanners of Europe to bankrupt
the rich cane countries iu other
portions of the globe.
A commission of experts was
sent over to Germany by the Uni
ted States government to investi
gate the alleged great improve
ments iu modern science and
mechanism that enabled German
manufacturers to produce sugar
at the startling low price prevail
ing. This commission wan practi
cally a failure; the manufacturers
of the old world were particularly
secretive; they would not show
the mysteries of their alleged prof
itable art, and it was finally be
lieved that they could not show
any profit in the business. This
mpressiou grew to be a convio
tion, on the annnunceuieut last
fall of several stupendous failures
hi tho sugar biiriiness in Austria
and of others iu Germany, the
chief beet producing country. It
was rendered a certainty when
later it was stated that the mami
factories would be forced greatly
to modify their contracts for raw
beets for tho ensuing year, and
many would mako no contracts lit
all during tho planting season,
which had formerly been tho rule
in the business.
Tho great reduction reported in
tho crop lately planted was to
have been expected as a legiti
mate consequence of tho situation.
This reduction has been stated to

would mean a probable shortage
of 400,000 or 500,000 tons of sugar,

In view of this great deficit,

Yes, the English sparrow is a
greedy bird, but he is consistent
in his greediness and consistency
is a jewel, ns everybody knows.
He not only eats enough to sustain
a good heaithy hen, but he builds
a nest big enough for a robin to
feel lonesome iu. The English
ii,ii;'Mv, !io the Eu.'!ih nation,
wants tho earth, and fuels bad
enough because he can't have it.

A man w as arretted a fev days
ago near Austin, Miss., for using
one of tho new levees as a road
wav, and after trial was sentenced
by the judge to pay a fine of $25,
and to be confined in the county
jail for ninety days. Tho ninety
days, however, was afterwards re
voked. This is the first caso we
have heard of where tho law whs
enforced upon any one violating
this most important provision of
tho levee law. Now as the levee
is completed and in good condi
tion it is necessary to protect and
preserve it. It is well for those
who do not regnrd the warning
notices of the proper authorities
to learn that tho law will be in
forced whenever occastioi re
