The registrars at the various places assigned in their districts were Robert K Morrison, north; Bonnet F. Lancaster, south; W. Eeklrs, oast; Patrick Mc Grory, wi st. All of these are Democrats A Republican U. S. Supervisor was within the window at each place of registration.

Tin- trouble of the day, however, began fraudulent tax receipt, was bed Tot when a caught by Registrar Georg« W. F.ekles, of the Eastern district, early in theafler Thls proved that some of the Republican leaders were resorting to base means to obtain a victory lids fall, a.-.d that they had either forged the name ot os-Collector Israel Ridings or that he had been a party to the scheme. John Rassel 1. a null known colored man, came up to the window to have his name en fle handed a receipt to the regis trar, who ot once saw that tlie name, 'Isiael Riding." had been written a long time ego, while the writing upon the re mainder of the receipt was yet fresh. The rest of the Incident was told by Mr. in an interview with the Ev mmi Journal man last night. "1 made no remark about the tax' col lector. but his signature appeared on tho receipt to be perfectly accurate, but tbe writing upon the receipt outside of the signature was fresh and would have blotted had it been folded up. The ink rubbed off so that the writing could have been made wholly unintelligible. Even the negro, when he saw the ink nil» off. laughed heartily as lie went away. " "Where did Russell come from 7" "Tbe negro came directly from I lie olob room across tlie street, which, I un derstand, is now used ns Republican 'headquarters.' with the tax receipt be tween his fingers as though it had been handed to him with instructions to hold it that way." "Did you hand tlie receipt to Mr Blackburn, the Republican supervi sor "Yes, I showed him the receipt and asked 'what do you think of that V He said, 'well, maybe the receipt was writ a? ten with a kind' noon. of ink that does not dry He finally said: 'Well, I don't know what to think of that, 1 don't know a Republican in this city who would concoct such a scheme." (laughter.) This story will be affirmed by Henry Uolsohuiuaker, a citizen who was standing in the window, und C. Edwin Eokles, the clerk." Mr. Eckles further said; "And now I complain that a hoUer-thau-thuu business man of this city should is* allowed to stand near the registration window and / try to infiitcnee a poor ignorant negro to lie about the place where he got his lax receipt.

Clerk« the The efficiency of Uncle Sam's postal service has been tested in an amusing, yet practical, way by Henry P. Butler, a lawyer at No. 120 Broadway, says the New York Press. Butler's wife and lit tle daughter, the latter affectionately called ' Karine," have been spending the summer at the Lodore Hotel, Asbury Park. In a spirit of faoetiousness Mr. But 1er wrote the child a letter a few days ago, addressing the envelope thus: "Dear l'm-le Sam. I wish to ni Down where the breezes used to blow On Jersey's sea bent shore T» » Utile girl they call Ksrlne, At a house known os 'Isidore,' X\ here Bradley nues with sway severe. All but tbe bumptious thermometer. Which ellmbetb up like a mountaineer And marketh points live score." The letter was mailed at the New York post office and reached its destination as quickly as if the address had been more explicit. When the letter carrier called he was soon told who "Karine" was, to the delight of tlie child. Mr. Butler has written postmaster Van Cott, compli menting him on the efficiency of his staff, and sent tbe envelope to be placed in the Postoffice Museum. HE CAME TO ROB. A Tlitt-f in the Mahl, When Spoken to. «lumps From u High Window. An attempt was made to rob the house of John E. Reed, corner of Lancaster avenue and Adams street, about 10 o'clock Sunday morning.

The (man started to climb into the room, but as lie got half way in Mr, Reed railed to him and asked what his husi ness was. The thief did not slop to answer the question, but leaped to the ground and ran away as if several ghosts were at his heels.

General admiration was expressed at the improvements which give to the building a very neat and eburchiy appearance. ; A Funeral lu Chill. In this queer country there is a funny side even to funerals. The other day a found of music attracted me to the win dow. and what do you think I saw? A mahogany hued peon (peasant) carrying on his head and outstretched hands a plank about five feet long and on the plank a dead child. The little corpse was that of u gin apparently about live years old. It was attired In a short frock of red calico, the legs inclosed in coarse white hose "a world too wide for the shrunk shank," no shoes, the jet block hair smoothly braided and crowned by a jaunty wreath of paper roses and the cheeks horribly danlied with vermilion to simulate the line of health. The plank la-arer was closely followed by two women, evidently the mother and grandmother of thevdeceased, and they walked with an air of conscious impor tance, as becomes those who have furnished otra angel ta ("another little angel," as here a dead child is universally called), to swell the heavenly host. Behind the wo men inarched two men, playing with might and main, one on a llddle, the other on a guitar, eacli intent on u tunc of his own regardless of the other's performance, and the rear was brought up by a dozen or more laughing and chattering men, wo men and children, most of whom gave in dubitable evidence of unwise generosity on somebody's part in the way of chlcba, the Chilian low class intoxicant. They were on the way to the Pantbeuon to Inter the "little angel," over whom they had been dancing and drinking for several days, and which possibly bad been lent once or twice in the meantime to friends who were not so fortunate as to have ä corpse in the family.—Valparaiso Letter. Where tin* Colon«*! llud Him. Colonel Sterreppis a newspaper man and a great render of standard matter. Not long ago he met a young fellow who beat him out on a question of Biblical history anti the colonel sought to get even. » "That boy of yours," be said to the yonng fellow's father, "is a bright one, but 1 guess 1 downed him." "How?" inquired tlie father with a good deal of curiosity. , "Well, I went home after he llaxcd me out on that Biblical point and read up on tlie Peloponnesian war—did you ever bear of the Peloponnesian war?" Tlie father said ho bud, and the colonel looked disappointed. "And," he resumed, "I camo at him on it the next time I bad a chance and, by thunder, sir, he told me he bad not only heard of it but luul studied about it in his school. Say, did you ever hear of tlie Peloponnesian war when you was a boy?" The old gentleman confessed that he had, and again the colonel looked hurt. "Yes," he went on; "he not only said that, but he asked me if I knew that Lin coln Imd got some of the ideas of his fam ous Gettysburg speech from the orations delivered on that war, and that's where I bad him," exclaimed the colonel with a broad smile of triumph. "How?" inquired the father, "Why, sir, glowed, "1 know all about that county in Illinois where Lincoln gut his learning, ami there ain't a man in it ever heard of the Peloponnesian war." The colonel's argument was irresistible and the father had to confess it.—Detroit Free Press. ami Ui« colonel'** face Increasing Longevity.

Now a woman is in tho heydey of her beauty nt thirty, and the ripest fruits of genius are frequently plucked at threescore and ten.
