President ('Icvcland'ii sharp letter of rebuke to u prominent politician who hud signed his imine to a letter of rmminiendu lion of a cundichito for ollice, and who had then written u private letter to tho Presi dent prolcsli:: ngiiinst tho appointment being made, win u forcible reminder of tho careless and disingenuous waysof too imiiiv politicians and of that easy-going Ameri can good nature, which would refuse to no one, however unworthy, so slight a favor as tho signing of your name lo a piece of paper. Still there are testimonials and testimonials. Perhaps we should not ex pect too much from the politicians, hut in many other callings a high standard must bo preserved. This can only ho done by the exorcise of great care and vigilance, hut w hen these are observed tho recom mendation becomes of great value. One cannot hut ho struck hy this fact in look ing over the testimonials which Athlo phoros has had from distinguished persons in every part of the country. The high character of those who in interviews or in letters have testified to i.i great worth as a remedy for rheumatism and neuralgia can leave no doubt on this point. A few of these words of recommendation from rep resentative; men of Ohio, follow: John T. I learn, the publisher of The Vuthy Sentinel at Sidney, O., says: "Athlophoros lias given my wife more relief from rheumatism and neuralgia than anything she ever tried, aud bIio has tried everything, having been a sufferer for fifteen years. I have let other suflcrers here use tho medicine with much benefit." Tho Kev. Maxwell P. (iaddis, of Par ton, O., a well-known divine, gladly sarsof the remedy : "Athlophoros has transcended all ex pectations and cured already some of our neighbors that were great sullerers." J. V. V. Kahbe, of 2-"G Main street, Cin cinnati, ()., in answer to the question of a visitor regarding his experience with tho medicine, said : " I have used it myself and have given it to my wife and hoy wit Ii very satisfactory results. In mv ow n case I used it for neu ralgia and it guvs mo very quick relief. My wife and hoy were allUcted with rheu matism, the hoy being very much swollen nnd he suffered intense pain. They are lxith well now and have been ever since they used Athlophoros. While 1 could not say how it might work with others, it cer tainly did its duty for me and wife and boy." John I?. Miller, of No. 110 Kerr street, Columbus. O., says : " My wife has been a terrible sufferer from rheumatism for the past five years until her hands were very much swollen and distorted and the pain was almost un endurable. After using several bottles of Athlophoros the pain and swelling lire entirely gone and she is well and perfectly cured of her rheumatism." Mrs. Margaret Ingham, of No. G34 IOast Exchange street, Akron, says: " I have never been troubled with rheu matism since I used Athlophoros over a year ago. I first took the rheumatism in my lower limbs and my knee was much swollen. Afterwards it got into my ankles, which were also greatly swollen. After using two bottles of Athlophoros 1 was en tirely well and could walk as well as ever. 1 am a great advocateof the medicine, and wliv shouldn't I be as it did so much for me?"

TRAMP PRINTER Strolls Through the Lone Star State, And Writes of Her Resources, Industries, Crops, Cities, and Newspapers. One Congressional District— One Congressional District— Some Statistics—Origin of the "Lone Star." Galveston—Houston—Ft. Worth—Dallas —Waco—Austin and Elsewhere. DALLAS, TEX., November 6th, 1885. Mr. F.niTon : Texas is bigger thau Lib- erty township N. P. Straugo to say it is even bigger thau Liberty township N. P. ami Liberty township S. P. combined. I have spent the last two mouths in Texas, visiting nil its most important places except thoso upon tho immediate frontier, and going over 4hree thousaud miles of railroad and yet there are plenty of places in the Stato that must forego the honor of my presence. In less than another week the Lone Star State will kiss me good bye, aud I shall seek new Golds aud pastures yet unhogged, far up iu tho heart of Arkauwiic, amid (he glens and recesses of the Oark and Irou Mountains. During my rambles through Texas I have seen sumo country and observed thai tho towns and cities have all grown wonder fully since I made a similar tour through the State two years ago. After a few words in general I will write about the cities. ABOUT TEXAS. The State of Texas embraces an area of 271,000 sepmre miles. It is larger thau Cugliind. Ireland, Scotland, and Wales combined. It is larger thau tho States of Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Hhode Island, New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut and Massachusetls combined, with a population about equal to tho cities of Now York aud Hrooklyu. At least so a laud agent tells me. The Eleventh congressional district of the State embraces a territory equal to the States of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, lihodo Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, Delaware, Marylaudand Ohio. Thesn States are represented iu Congress by sixty-one members, aud tho samo area in Texas is represented by one man. This district, however, embraces the western portion, nearly half of tho State, which is piito sparely settled, m my of tho counties being yet unorganized. There are pine lands in fifty-one couuties, covering an area larger than tho State of Ohio. The sugar belt iu Texas covers n terri tory larger than tho Stato of Florida, aud the cotton aud corn producing section is larger thau tho States of Touuesseo, Ken tucky and Louisiana combined. It has a territory producing cereals in paying quantities larger thau the States of Illiuois, Indiana and Ohio together. It has irou ore iu fifty-six counties, each county averagiug over 800 square miles, coal iu forty -two couuties so far discovered, and mineral water in forty.five counties in different sections of the State. nuver uos been discovered and miuos partially worked iu tweuty-oue couuties of the State, and gold bus been discovered iu seven counties and in a few instances mines worked. It has lands that will produco two hogs heads of sugar to the aero, 10 biiahels of wheat, HO to 125 bushoU of oats aud 100 bushels of corn, uud cotton proportionately. It also has piuo lauds growing from 5,000- 000 to 10,000,000 feet of lumber per ucro. and laud producing two to four tons of mesquito grass per acre. The business outlook for tho entire State of Texas is decidedly more encouraging than for years past. The grain crop is far iu advance of anything hoped for, and when we take into consideration the fact that Texas is the only State in tho Union where tho small grain crop is anything like a goueral average in poiut of yield, we see no reason why the farmers should not be well compensated for their labor. Coru, wheat, barley, rye and other small grain has aud will continue to command a good price, to Bay nothing of tho cotton crop. which is placed by knowing oues at two millions bales. Tako that as a basis and place its value at ij'50 per bale and you bavo the astounding sum of if 100,000,000 alone from the cotton crop. Iu fact, Texas offers good inducements to those who desire cultivate tho soil from the reason that does not require tho oxtensivo preparation for a long winter that is Incident to the frigid regions of the northwestern States There seems to be a deposit of excellent iron ore iu some portions of the State, which, by experts, is prououueed equal the best Pennsylvania, ores, greatly reseiii bliug Swedish irou iu its qualities. thorough geological survey has yet been made to determine the extent of the de posits, and as far as kuowu, ouly surface deposits exibt. These aro, however, prac i .ically inexlmustable, and should invite th. attentinn of manufacturers interested ii iron industries. The ore is a hematic, and assays from f.S to SO per cenl. of excellent iron ore, superior for car wheels, rails and heavy machinery, where a hard, tough iron is desiraUle. "This industry," says an en thusiastic journal, "is destined to revolu tionize Eastern Texas from its present tor por and inactivity, and transform it into a great manufacturing district." Northern capital and Northern emigration aro welcome here aud are potent factors in building up the country. Many of the merchants and also farmers and ranchmen are from the Ni.rtheru and Eastern States, aud though there is still empires of room it is plainly to bo seen that tho State is tilling up quite rapidly. The greatest element of the foreign settlers are the UormatiH, who liavo peopled colonies and grown comfort able with their thrift and industrial habits. At New Hrauufels for instance, tho popula tion is almost wholly Teutonic. In garb aud language tho cilizeus aro the same as in tho Vatetland, even the negroes speak ing (iermnu better than English. Iu tho southern part ot the State wo find many Mexicans, whose principal industry seem to be disposing of a peculiar delicacy of their own manufacture tho tomaie. THE LONE STAR. The early history of the Texan Republic and of tho State of Texas is ouo long record of thrilling adventure, blood and conquest from the time tho Texans first declared their independence of Mexico until the coward Sauta Auuu fell into the bauds of Sam Houston's rangers. As to how it be came kuowu by the title "Lone Star State," the following account is supposed to be authentic, according to old Governor Smith, of the embryo republic : He stated that while provisional govornor, it became necessary to Bend souio ollicial documents to New Orleans. The gentleman who was to tako the documents insisted that it should havo some sort of seal. The provisional governor had adopted none. Just then some one observed a five-pointed brasa button ou the governor's overcoat. It was cut off immediately and used as the State seal. Arrived at New Orleans, the newspaper reporters, seeing tho impression of the livo-poiuted brass button iu tho wax made it an emblem for tho State, aud the emblem of the State has remained ever since and ever will. GALVESTON. One of tho most boautiful places iu Ameri ca, is situated ou an island of tho same name iu tho Gulf of Mexico. This strip of land, thirty miles long, is also called the Oleaudor Isle" from the profusion of that beautiful specimen of semi-tropical vegota tion. The city is rather ou a decline, as regards business, new railroads have turned much of her trade into other chauuels, but she remains a place of quiet beauty on her island iu tho sea. Her beach is picturesque and her subur ban streets clothed and fringed with rows of luxuriant southern foliage are quaintly beautiful. The Tremont is a pretty fair hotel, aud tho Peach Hotel (uow tempo rarily closed) is simply elegant. Mr. liryan, of the Morning Nrtrn, and Mr. Donokoo, of tho Keening Tribune, are gentlemen whose acquaintance I am proud to have made. Just now Galveston is in dulging iu a grand strike by tho longshore- men, iu which the Trades Uuiou has ioiued. aud the whole city is at a standstill. When I get rich I am goiug to Galveston to spend eiobt or ten mouths each vear. HOUSTON. to Galveston's immediate rival, is surnauiod the "Bayou City." Its population almost the same (:10,000) aud it is growiug rapidly. Tandy Ayres you all know him went there about seven years ago with goon luieuuons auu a uau cougu. jow he owns a shoe storo, a block or so of uent little tenements iu tho suburbs, and enjoys excellent health, while his t'ood intentions have lucreased proportionately with his capital. Mr. Dawson, who used to make ice cream for W. T. Powers, followed Mr. Ayres without any capital wcrth mention, ing, and uow ho is doing a prosperous con fectionary business and paying taxes ou two elegaut pieces of property iu nice quarters of tho city. To Mr. aud Mrs. Dawson, Mr. Ayres aud his estimable fam ily aud mauy of their Iloustou friends, am iudebted for a pleasant timo. Mr. Cook, who occupios tho city editor's chair iu tho office of the J'ont, is a gentleman and a scholar, (ho said something like that about me) and I will add that he ought bo Governor or something equally honor able and remunerative. Frank Morrow. for over two years a resident of Houston, was transferred to New Orleans about mouth ago, but ho comes back ou a visit weekly (or fortnightly at least) and they say that ho I moan to say the Capitol Hotel is au elegaut hashery. liy the way I may add hero that good hotels are so scarco in Texas that they ought to have honorable mentiou when they are discovered. I will always remem ber Houston with pleasure. FT. WORTH to With 20,000 population is growing steadily, aud is perhaps the toughest place of size iu Texas. Its newspapers aro excel lout, aud the city bears unmistakably the marks of progress. I met an old Lima (Ohio) friend hero in tho person of Mr. Will Mouyer. DALLAS. Probably entitled to be called the principal city of lexas, is growiug faster than auy the other places mentioned. The Grand Windsor I stopped at two years ins been replaced by an elegant stou structure, palatial in magnitude and finish. Here I met Frank llrady, a genial and brilliant journalist, who was on "tho con temptible sheet around the corner," when I was on the "long felt want" in Vicksbnrg. md of course we had a nice time togethei He is holding down the railroad desk and doing the "Hrainery Sketches" on the new Af urn in; Xeirt, recently established by tho proprietors of ihe Galveston eir. It is one of the Quest offices I was ever in. The stall is largo and capable, but when Brady introduced mo iu turn to Sullivan. McNeiluii, Sterrett, and I believe an O'Loary- (let's see -yes - I think tho red nosed man who was editing tho New York election dispatches with a fiendish smilo on his face was mimed O'Loary I'm almost certain of it) I couldn't help inquiring whether it was a dynamiter's headquarters or a conveutiou of land le iguers. Hut they were all jovial ami generous Bohemians, and they havo my best wishes for success. The Iltrahl is another well-conducted morning paper, aud the Timet is a model evening sheet. WACO. With a population of about 1 1,000, is an other steadily growing place, lying on the Brazos river, which is spaned by a suspen sion bridge. Messrs. Pucketto and Me Collnm, of tho !iy, and a dozen nice young fellows ou tho Examiner kept the people of that region appraised of the doings iu the world. Here I met another old friend ill tho person of Undo Dan llice, who used to own a big circus about the timo I was washiug rollers iu the News office or, perhaps, since I come to think of it, a lit t lo before. Dennisou, Gainesville, Sherman, lion haiu, Paris, Marshall, Palostiue, Tyler, McKinney, Waxahatchie, Mexia (pro nounced Mebair) liryan, Navasota, lireu hatu uud Temple, are good towns with an average population of probably five or six thousand. Longview, Miucalo, Taylor, F.nuis, Cal vert, Hempstead, Crockett, Columbus, Se guin, Weimar, Georgetown, and Atlanta will average about 3,000 souls each and are growing places. Terrell has a fine and commodious insane asylum. Austin, the capital, is growiug also, aud hor new statebouso is a dandy, llillsboro, with about 2,500 people, has more lifo than any towu of 5,000 people in Ohio. Huutsville has a peuiteutiary, and Lampasas is celebrated for its sulphur springs. Withiu the past two years Clarks villo, Helton and Greenville have built court housus so line that but I don't like to mention the subject; it makes me sick. At Corsicana I met Messrs. Eylar A I'ylar, publishers of tho Daily Courier, ond brothers of tho West Union Defender man. They are evidently prospering. I had intended to write something about San Antonio iu this epistle, but its historic wouders are too groat to bo passjd with mere notice, ami I will make it the basis of my next letter, with some traditions iu re gard to the fall of the Alamo, the death of Davy Crockett and tho capture of Sauta Auna.

K. through the magnificent scenery, presented with panoramic effect upou the slide of progress, of autumnal woods in all their glory of varigated effects of mountain, hill, and vale, we saw ouly what so many of your readers have often seen and hence a description would prove very uninteresting iu presenting nothing new aud fresh. So wo have decided to drop such a feature as impracticable. Our long sileuoo has been duo rather to press work than lack of subject. Baltimore has been long kuowu as the "Monumental City." I suppose tho fact its having beeu long known is sufficient warrent for the title for the number am: beauty of its monuiueuts would now scarce ly justify the claim. Iu this we do uot wish to reflect aught against the right the city to the titlo for tho patriotism hich caused her citizens to erect -two notable monuments. one to commemorate Wash ingtou and oue to the memory of the do fonder of tho city iu 1811, deserves to bo recognized in tonus of praise.

Battle Monument was erected by the City government to the memory of those who fell in defense of the City at the battlo of North Point aud the bombardment of Fort MeHcnry on the 12th aud 1:1th of September, 1814. The shaft of the monu ment represents a fasces, symbolical of the Union: the rods are bound by a fillet on which are inscribed tho names of the forty one men who by their death strengthened the bauds of the Uuiou. The edifice is 42 feet, 8 inches high, built entirely of mar bio, surmounted by a statue 9 feet, 6 inches high, representing the City of Piiltiuiore. In oue baud is a rudder, emblem of Naviga tion; iu'tho other she raises a crown of laurel as she looks toward tho field of battlo. The Odd Follows' Monument is worthy of atteutiou as a work of architectural de sign with a technical purpose. Its object is to houor the memory of Thomas Wildey, who founded the Independent Order of Odd Fellows in lialtiinore April '2f.th, 1810, and to typify tho progress of the Order from a rude beginning until it has attained a uoblo and commanding rank. To em body this idea the base is rough gruuilo from which rises the white marble super structure.. The pillar is Doric surmounted by a life-sized figure representing Charity protecting orphans, the total height being 52 feet. There are a number of other monuments iu the city of minor importance, but of which wo shall not speak, lest we weary your readers with descriptions. lialtiinore as a city, is healthful and well built not grandly but substantially.

There are a great many colored people iu this city, and considering tho many disadvantages they havo labored under, havo made much progress as a class since their emancipation.

As the season of "oyster suppers" is at baud, it may be well to note that lialtimore is the greatest oyster depot in the world, about 10,000,000 bushels being brought here annually. The oyster as it conies from its native element is about as unpre possessing au object as can be imagined. The shells covered with a black, slimy, filthy mud, shoveled from a dirty boat into an equally dirty cart to be hauled to a pack ing house, would be about the last thing in creation to tempt the stomach of a hun gry man, but after they have beuu meta morphosed by au oyster-opener into a read iness for market the good features of tho "festive oyster" readily appear.
