Judge Tkkiit of California has been

■with demoniacal calmness and fiendish
candor: "Ah, I have struck him a little
too high," as Senator Broderick reeled
and fell dead on the duelling field in 1859.
Terry's bullet had pierced Broderick's
longs and the wound was fatal. Since
that time Terry has led a tempestuous
career. Just such a career as would
naturally follow such a beginning. It
was not an ordinary duel. The fire of
Broderick was drawn or came by accident
and then Terry coolly shot him to death.
Mr. Davis, the owner of the farm on
which theduel took place, cried: "That

Sarah Althea. In case of any doubt it
was much better to kill Terry. The

Charles Hoffman, the most success
ful rascal in Europe, Is gradually closing
up his affairs with the intention of erni
grating to the United States. He calls
himself either Baron von Hoffman,
Chevalier von Hoffman or Baron Henri
de Courtier. He Is tall and fine looking,
dresses handsomely and has a military
air. He is about 47. He married a Rus
sian Priucess, whom he deserted after
squandering her fortune. He speaks
English, French, German, Italian and
Russian. He was born at Prague. The
story of his swindling in Vienna and
other cities makes a remarkable tale of
crime. It is probable that he
contemplates going into the Christian
science business or some other light,
healthful and a'sthetic profession which
will not occupy his entire time. After
the flock of rich and silly women recover
from the shocks caused by the little
indiscretions of the Craw ford-Worthing
ton-Plunkett combination, Hoffman
might form a sort of Christian science
trust aud operate with good success in
the large cities of the East where the
"pickings'' for such scoundrels are partic
ularly rich and accessible. He has all the
qualifications to excite the imagination
and gratify the vanity of susceptible
femininity and would likely inaugurate a
new aud important industry there.
Tlie New York Tribune is doing lively
and persistent work iu defence of cor
Corporal Tanuer. The latest effort ill
that directiou is a gorgeous explanation
to relieve the "wild frenzy" of the dis
loyal Democratic press concerning Sena
tor Manderson of Nevada.
Senator Manderson is a millionaire.
He was not applying for a pension, sud
he was not iu the line of mardi to the
poor house. But out of pure benevolence
and from a liberal and a sort of inner
temple, purer-light interpretation of the
pension laws Corporal Tanner determlued
that he ought to have a large pension on
general principles. Having reached this
conclusion the corporal explained the
situation in his own sweet aud meiifluous
language thus:
There appeared to be an idea abroad
that sympathy would control r.ction iu
these matters; that it a soldier was
needy and suffering we were not inclined
to look much beyond t hat fact in consid
ering the pension claim. But 1 said that
if in the case of a man of eminent po
sition aud easy circumstances like Sena
tor Mamierson. we found that injustice
had been done, ami proceeded to right
the wroug. it would be the best kind
evidence that sympathy was not running
away with the office, and that we were
actuated only by the desire to do justice.
So the pension was increased to If0,000
per aunum, not because Senator Maudor
Bou ueeded the mouey, not because the
wound Iu the hack, (when his face was
turned to rally his running troops) in
capacitated him from drawing his salary
as Seuator, or clipping his coupons, but
to relieve an erroneous impression that
the department would not "do justice" to
a soldier, even if he were not in needy
That is a very difficult case to explain,
but the Tribune undertook, and explained
it, too. The explanation was vigorous
and strong, as the explanations of the
Tribune usully are, but the vigor and
strength were devoted euttrely to the
dlBlnyal Democrats, who hate to see a
pension paid to a soldier no
matter if he is rich and in
fluential, aud carries a slight
wound in the back. The Tribune ex
plains that he turned his back to the
enemy to rally his troops. So it is evi
dent that somebody was a little affected
by the presence of the enemy. The
wound is in Manderson's back, not in the
backs of the tro ps, hence the questiou
lies between him aud his troops about
the cause of its being lodged in his back
instead of in his noble breast. His pluck
aud valor are demonstrated by receiving
a pension of $5,000 uuder these adverse
circumstances Noue but a brave aud
rich Seuator would receive a pension with
the least stigma attached to it On the
coutrary, the Senator deserves another
pension for the splendor of of hia nerve
aud all loyal and liberal people should
beud their energies to excite the country
to recoguize his distinguished merits.
Meantime, behold Tanner! He would
not withhold $5,000 from a man simply
because he is rich, is wounded in the
back, has been repeatedly refused and
has no valid claim. Those little impedi
ments served to make an opportunity to
show that "sympathy was not running
away with the office," that the office was
"actuated ouly by a desire to do justice."
There was no reason for giving Senator
Manderson a pension which was not al
lowed by the laws, hut "justice" must he
Such is Tanner's conception of duty.
Here is a surplus aud there is a soldier.
That is all Tauner wishes to know.
If the G. A. R. elects Tannera com
mander or endorses his course this notor
ious Seuator Manderson case is an in
stance of wbat they are endorsing aud it
will show their position.

Phlladclplt'a American.
The strength of woman is in approach
ing every question on the personal side.
As an English writer of 1841 says:
Offices of care and tenderness, of com
fort and soothing, have the best sources
of their discharge in that unfailing pity
which dwells in womanhood. For one
characteristic of the other sex is that it
is with extreme difficulty that they gener
alize; they care for the welfare of indi
viduals, hnt rarely for that of states or
communities. Patriotism in its true
sense can scarcely be said to exist among
them. When they attach themselves to
oue party it is not so much that they care
much for the success of the general
measures advocated by it, but rather tin y
desire the party to succeed for the sake
of the individuals in it whom they love.
Public spirit Is with them almost an
affectation, and the eagerness of argn
ment which would evince it only serves
to detract from their loveliness Unriv
alled in their influence over the individ
ual, they are weak aud powerless in all
that relates to classes or grand divisions.
The legislative man does not belong to
them, nor the spirit of government.

the result might fairly be credited to
some virtue inherent in the decoction in

Introducing a New Breed.
Nebraska State Journal.
The theory of Brown Sequard is that
decay sets in because of the languid cell
life ot tbe body. The cells have gone on
from infancy producing new cells, aud
passing away until the power ot constant
reproduction is impaired and with it is
impaired the vitality of the body. Now,
by introducing a new breed of living cells
from a young and vigorous animal, the
cell life is immediately quickened aud re
newed. and the inoculated orgauism re
news its physical youth, and with that
renewal comes the invigoration of the
brain as well as of ail other animal
