Its Importance—The Hospital—The Flag Staff—The Church—Headquarters —Library—Memorial Hall—Soldiers' Monument, &c., &c. H. G. W.'S SECOND PAPER. For the N"i:w8. In writing a description of the nitiuy nt tructioUH of the Soldiers' National Home, the writer should aim to keep at least two thiugH ill view : First, that to 0110 who hns never vimtoil this institution a description might ho of some value ; Heooud, tlmt, as it is a national institution, it is of national importance, and therefore should lie woll known to the people. In our former article on this subject we gave 11 historical sketch and outline view of the H01110. This week we will attempt to describe the most inter esting fentures of this veritable earthly par adise, but we are fully aware that we can not do justice to our theme. We will suppose that we liuve arrived at Third Street Depot, Daytou: hero we will take a Btreet car nud go to the western ter minus of the line, where we will make con nection for the Home 011 steam curs running hourly. After wo reach the home we will take a stroll np Pennsylvania avenue. A line panoramic view presents itself to the eye. Looking to tho eastward we see the entire city of Dayton, much of it apparent ly in a forest. That silvery stream elidine along its winding course is the Miami Kiver. Hut there are many other things mure en ticing and fusciuiitiiiK than this. In front of us and to tho right we behold the turret crowned hospital, while on the left is a bat tery of field guns. These are fired twice a day, six o'clock morning and evening. Hut wo will turn to the right and take a look at THE HOSPITAL. In which thousands of heroic men have suffered the pangs of disease and battle wounds. Wo will go in at the north en trance. Welcome? Of course we are, but we must be quiet that we may not disturb tho sleeping. As we euter, see an aged man nt our left, reading a time-woru Ilible. Who knows the history of that Bible? lie can tell you why he would rather have it than a new one. He was in the war of 1812, in which he was wounded. He makes the book his daily comfort, remembering that "There's comfort in (lod'a Holy Hook For such as there for comfort look." And ho never forgets to w ok that comfort. His gray hairs Tell us the tale of years, but not of liearts," And remind us that his slay with us is short. Hut lot us observe what others are doing. A few of them are able to do a little work, and aro furnished with material to make many beautiful ornaments of beads, wire, and so 011. Hut wait till wo visit the Mind Hospitals, Barracks Nos. 1 I mid 15, front ing on Keutucky Avenue. In this main hospital wo may see enough terrible, rather pitiable, sights. The worst cases are kept in the second and third stories, and visitors are not often allowed entrance. Cases re quiring extreme isolation are provided for in several one-story frame buildings. These with the main building accommodate four hundred sufferers at a time, and when va cancies occur by death they are soon filled by others, so that there is seldom a vacant j bed, ninny having (o be treat, d in the bar racks. J he hospital is indeed asoirowful place to visit, but everything is nuidu as comfortable and cheerful as possible. Here many cases of insanity aro (rented, the on tire number of that class lrenle.1 in ss2 amounting (o So, and (he blind and helpless 307. In the same year those who had sttf fered loss of limbs numbered 208. Having seen enough of the reflected scenes of the cruel realities of war in this one place, we will turn our steps until we como to THE FLAG-STAFF. Around which aro mounted unite a number of the instruments of war's bloody drama, in the shape of field guns, mortars, large cannon, etc,, surrounded by the real balls, and bombs in sufficient quantities to trims act a little-war. !y asking that old gunner perched on top of one of the largest guns, he will tell us Unit a few men cculd destroy Dayton, situated at a distance of from two to five miles to the east. (The writer talk ed for hi tine- time to a gunner there who told him this, and explained the power of the various guns, how used, and some of the terrible sights ho had seen as the effects of the monstrous engines.) Continuing our stroll up Pennsylvania Avenue, we will come to THE CHURCH. One of the first buildings erected oil the grounds. It is a beautiful ivy-mantled stone structure, having upon its exterior a pleasing look of antiquity. It is built after tho old fiothic style of arthitecture, and seems cut of its place here, so much does it look like the pictures of ancient Komau buildings. We call it the church be cause both Catholic and Protestant services are regularly held within its walls by the resident ministers. We will lake New York Avenue until we come to a two-story brick building with a Mansard roof. This is HEADQUARTERS BUILDING. So called because the different offices of the Homo arc ln ie on the first door. After viewing the beautiful exterior and hand somely-fitted offices, we will take tho broad stairway lending to the second lioor. Here are numerous relics of war and photograph ic views of Dayton and the. Home. To the right is THE LIBRARY. One of tho grandest possessions of the Home, and one of which il may well be proud to boast. Spacious as it is, every nook possesses some treasure. The room is divided into two parts, known ns the "George If. Thomas Library" and tho "Putnam Li. brary." The former, occupying the w estern portion of the room, was so called in honor of the brave and gallant George H. Thomas. The Putnam Library was founded, and is still partly sustained, by Mrs. Mary Lowell Putnam, of Boston, whose son, Lieutenant Pufnani, lost his life in defense of his conn try. This library, as well as the former, forms one of the most valuable, collections of books anywhere in the country, many of which can not be duplicated at any price. Thousands of them are protected by paper covers, so costly is the binding. Mrs. Put nam sends her greeting to the Soldiers on five anniversaries, viz: Washington's birth day, Memorial Day, anniversary of Lieu tenant Putnam's death, Thanksgiving nud Christmas. On these days she sends a great quantity of books and other gifts to the Home. Besides the 13,000 volumes of books there are hundreds of other things to at tract the attention to anmso and interest. Belies from battle-fields across tho ocean, around which hovers a strangely fascinating spirit. Foreign countries aro represented iu donations. A Chinese man-of-war, made in China and presented to theD.V. S., may be viewed with interest. When visiting the library you should not forget to take a look at Gen. Grant's saddle, also Gen. Hook er's, for they are both there. To tell what may be seen and learned by a visit to this one place would fill a volume, so we will pass on to MEMORIAL HALL. Approached from Pennsylvania Avenue by one of the most attractive walks on the grounds, fringed on either side with flow ers of various hues. These Dowers ar products of the propagating house, which we will visit in our next letter. This hall is furnished ami equipped very handsomely, and is surpassed by few in the country. First-class actors, culled from the best ('-) theaters of New York, during tho summer seasons delineate the latest popular produc tion in society dramas. A largo number of frco plays aro given. Sealing capacity of (his hull, l.olll). To change our field of observation for a short time we will vUit THE GAS WORKS. Erected near by on the northwestern quar ter of the grounds, lb-re all the gas is made (hat is required on the grounds, in cluding the light for the church, (heater, inclines, etc. A vast amount of coal is here consumed, ami. the soldiers dike pleas ure in showing us around, and telling us how gas is made. Just a few steps will take us to THE CEMETERY. Located just west of the hospital, on an elevated kiull. The ground is divided into four sections, centering at tho highest point, where the handsome SOLDIERS' MONUMENT. Overlooks the surrounding grounds. There is an interesting piece of history connected with (his monument. The stone of which it is constructed used to form 0110 of the huge columns which supported a building in Philadelphia Unit famous old United States Bunk, of which we rend iu history. The shaft alone is forty-eight feet in height anil surmounted by a colossal statue, ten feet high, of a soldier at parade rest. Four other studies grace, the base of the shaft On each of the four corners of the base stand life-like figures in pure while marble, carved in "Kalia's sunny clinics." Those statues represent the four brunches of the service, viz: Navy, artillery, cavalry and infantry, and tho most expressive, life-like representations we have ever seen. This beautiful tribute, which was formally dedi cated the last of July, in presence of thou sands, yes, acres of people, was secured and paid fur by a Home society, known as the "Monumental ami Historical Society," at a cost of 20,000. This society gave exhibitions, lectures, etc., by which to pro cure the necessary funds. One other feature of the cemetery we will notice, and that is the style of the grave boards, for that is what they are. Each "tombstone" consists of a board about ten inches wide and extendim two feel ibove the ground, painted white in imita tion of stone, inch on.- telling (lie 11111110 of the person, (o what company ho belonged, iu wha( war he fought and date of his death. These nre arranged in close rows. Some times a nice stone, or even small monu ment, may be seen, erected by friends or relatives of tho deceased. As we have already consumed enough of the reader's time with this letter, we will lrop the subject for the present, promising to conclude iu our next. H. G. W. Aug. 20, 1884. CLODHOPPER. Hops Onto our Democratic Friends and Gives them Some Nuts to Crack. For tho News. If our Democratic friends are favoring free (ratio for the purpose of getting cheap goods, why do (hey not favor the importa tion of Chinese ? This is a problem for them to solve. S'e all know that the adoption of fr. e trade will remove (he only barrier that protects the American mechanic against his foreign competitors. And really Mr. Five Trader, w.mld it no' bo just as well, if not better, to bring the "cheap labor" to the United States to com pete wi(h our home industries if there is to be no protection against it? Iu dcalii g with this subject our free trader only speaks of the mill owners and capital as being protected. This Js not right. Give the mill owners and capital tho Chinese and pauper wages of European countries, and they won't ask for a protect ive tariff. But our freo trader is a queer chicken, a veritable rurn net's. He parade its tho friend of tho laboring man by oppos ing the importation of the Chiiusc which is right and then tries on the other hand to remove the only barrier that protects the laboring man of (his country ngainst com petition with foreign paupers, European ami Asiatic cheap lubor. If our laborers have to compete with pau pers and pauper wages, what difference does it make to them where the paupers live? This is the nut to crack. No one will deny that the tariff needs regulation, but not iu the interest of capital nor reve nue, but in the interest of lubor, American labor needs protection, and why ? Simply because foreign manufactur ing is carried on by laborers that work for less wages than the American citizen can, that educates his children and dresses like a gentleman. Do you understand ? Let me recapitulate. It is not capital that needs protection against foreign cheap labor. It is tho op earatives, the men, women and children that perform the labor. They need protection for just the same reusou that we would exclude tho Chinese from our country. Now kind reader let me ask you, which is your worst enemy or best friend, the one that excludes tho Chinese and then puts you iu competition with his cheap labor all the same, or tho one that protects your la bor at home and abroad ? If all the world was inhabit- d by high minded freemen that eut white bread, edu cate their children and wear broad cloth on Sunday, then you would bavo your protec tion by competition with paupers. lint then the situation is far different. You are called upon by your free trader to compete with people that know none of the com forts, and aro perfect strangers to the mode of life of (he American laborer. White bread and beefsteak are luxuries unknown to theni. This is what your free trade friend is in viting you to and yet has tho impudence to cull himself the poor man's friend and ask him for his suffrage. Ci.ouHoi'i'i n. GREENLAWN, Aug. 25th, 1884.

A Young Girl's Dementia—How it was Occasioned—Some New and Startling Truths. The St. Louis express, on tho New York Central road, was crowded one evening re cently, when at one of tho w.'ty stations, an elderly gentleman, accompanied by a young Inly, entered the cars and finally secured n Scat. As the conductor approached the pair, the young lady arose, and in a pleading voice said : "Please, sir. don't let him carry me tothe asylum. I am not crazy; I am a little tired. but not mad. Oh! no indeed. Won't yon please have pupa dike tne back home ?" The conductor, accustomed though be was to all phases of humanity, looked with iiishnn nt at the pair as did the oilier passengers in their vicinity. A few words from tin- father, however, sufficed, and the conductor passed 011 while the young lady turned her face to the window. The w riter chanced to be seated just behind the old gentlemen and could not forego (he desire to speak to him. With a sad face and a trembling voice the father said : ".My daughter has been attending the seminary in a distant tow n and was succeed ing remarkably. Dor natural qualities, to gether with a great ambition, placed her in the front ranks of theschool, but she studied too closely, was not careful of her health, and her poor brain has been turned. I am taking her to a private asylum whero we hope she will soon be better." At the next station the old man and his daughter left the cars, but tho incident so suggestive of Shakespeare's Ophelia, awakened strange thoughts iu the mind of Iho writer. It is an absolute fact that while tho population of America increased thirty per cent, during the decade between lsn and 1KS0 the insanity increase was one hun drid and thirty-fire )tr rri,t for the same period. Travelers by rail, by boat, or in carriages in any part of (he land see large and elaboritc buildings, and inquire what they tire'. Ii::.ai!e asylums .' Who builds them ? Each Stale; every enmity : hundreds of private individuals, and in all cases their capacity is taxed to the utmost. Why ! Bivtinsc men, in business nnd the pro fessions, women, at home or iu society, and children at school overtax their mental and nervous forces by work, worry and care. This brings about nervous disorders, indi- Ijistioii and eventually mania. It is not always trouble with the head that cans: s insanity. It far oftcner aries from evils iu othir parts of the body. The ner vous system deleniiiies the stains of the brain. Any one who has periodic head aches; occasional dizziness; a dimness of vision; 11 ringing iu the ears; u feverish head ; frequent nausea or a sinking at the pit of the stomach, should take warning at once. Tho stomach and head arc iu direct sympathy and if one be impaired the other can never be in order. Acute dyspepsia causes more insane suicides than any other known agency and the man, woman or child w hose stomach is deranged is not ond can not be safe from the coming 011 at any mo ment of mania iu somo one cf itB many .terrible forms. The value of moderation and the impera tive necessity of care iu keeping the stomach right must therefore be clear to all. The least appearance of indigestion, or nial-as-simuiilutiou of food should be watched 11s carefully as the first approach of an invad ing army. Many means have beeu advocated for meeting such attacks, but have hereto fore been more or less defective. There cau be but little doubt, however, that for the purpose of regulating the stomach, ton ing it up to proper action, keeping its nerves in a normal condition and purifying the blood, Warner's Tippcanoe The Best, excels all ancient or recent discoveries. It is ab solutely Hire and vegetable ; it is certain to add vigor to adults, whilo it canuot by any possibility injure even a child. The fact that it was used in the days of the famous Harrison family is proof positive of its merit as it basso thoroughly withstood the test of time. As a tonic and revivilicr it is simply wonderful. It has relieved the agony of the stomach iu thousands of cases; soothed the tired nerves; produced peace ful sleep and averted the coming on of a mania more to be dreaded than death itself.
