"While Croperella was springing I lie stone four times, he loaded the hull twelve palms deep and he had.no more powder. He loaded the hole with dyna mite and black ponder. He then gave Giordano a key and asked him to go to tin- powder house and get him sonic i>ovv dcr. Giordano brought the box. I heard Croperella say yon eome near to me for we have to loud tills hole. Then there was dynamite put iu this hole, but 1 could not see how umeh. Then the explo sion occurred and my hat went off.

Concerning the great scheine so often mentioned wo wish to say once and for Wi that no Republican, Union or Uegu iar, has ever, by word or intimation, con veyed to ns a desire concerning the ap pointment of voters' assistants or any mention of the scheme so often referred to. In fact, the very first and only intox ination we have had ou this subject was conveyed to us in a letter from Mr. Wil lard Saulsbury, chairman of the Demo cratic State Central Committee, firm belief is that the aforementioned scheme never existed except in the inter ested imagination of said committee, and that in their desire to make political cap ital they simply forecast the future by the past, and are surprised seemingly to find in the Executive chair a Republican above their self-measurement, who lights fair politically and tries to execute the laws as he finds them.

ABUSING PRIVILEGE Railroad May Discontinue Sale of Monthly Commutation Tickets Because so many more jicrsons used monthly commutation tickets this city and Philadelphia than corres ponded witli the number of tickets sold, suspicion was aroused in the minds of Pennsylvania railroad officials that the ticket* were being manipulated by whole sale and farmed out to casual passengers. An investigation was set on foot, and it was found that the monthly tickets were being traded in extensively. Purchasers of these tickets placed them on sale at cigar stores and other between places of public resort, and a person wishing to go to Philadelphia for the nay could obtain a ticket and pay only GO cents for the round trip. The regular excursion rate between Wilmington and Philadelphia is $1, and for one way tin price is 67 cents, so that tIlls process netted the occasional rider a considerable saving, and, on account of the very low price of the monthly ticket, enabled Un original purchaser to clear from $5 to $S a month. This manipulai ion wont on iu tin face of the fact that the tickets are not transferable, and subject to forfeiture if improperly used. Witliiu the last few days fifteen month ly tickets have been taken up by tlie con ductors in the hands of persons who fail ed to identify tln-mselvcs as the rightful uers. Soun- time ago tin- 100 tfip ticket and the quarterly ticket between the cities were withdrawn on account of similar manipulation, hut the monthly ticket was continued on sale. Evidence no«- in possession of tho company shows that there is an extensive use of the monthly tickets by persons wholly unau thorised to travel on them, to the detri ment of the company's revenues. Au official of the company said the commutation rates between Philadelphia and Wilmington are very low on account of the large amount of travel, and that if the monthly tickets are not confined to their legitimate use it would be neces sary to withdraw them for the protection of the company.

Yesterday afternoon they were in the sotitlh window of the store and attracted a crowd that blocked the street and made it almost Impos sible for one to either enter or leave the store, Mrs. Dark Cloud Is the name of the Indian woman. She Is small of stature and ha« tilg dark eyes and quantities of long black hair that is shiny and soft ns silk. Although her skin is somewhat coppery, her features are good, and though dressed in buckskins, and adorned with beads and strange, barbaric-looking jewelry, she is not the ordinary Indian squaw by any means. She appears to bo a well in formed and educated woman, and she speaks good English without an ac cent. It seems odd to hear such cor rect sentences fall from the Ups of the strangely attired little woman. Her husband. Dark Cloud, she say«, is a six-fooler and a splendid specimen of manhood. The child Is called Bessie, or "Little Bright Byes," and she is a perfect lit tle beauty. She has a soft, peachy skin, and her big black eyes shine (through quantities of long dark hair. She also is dressed In Indian attire and seems oblivions of the admiration which she inspires. Mrs. Dark Cloud and Little Bright Eyes are full-blooded Indians of the Abanaquy tribe, of Canada.

Indications Point to L^gis laiion By ilie Former Ällectiui» Latter From all indications it is very likely that something will lie done iu the way of legislation affecting the State troops by the present Congress. Already have there laxen a large number of plans proposed, ranging from an increased appropriation upon the present basis, to a very radical change whereby the State troops turned practically into senti-regulars lin der the direct control of the Prcs'dent. With so many eggs to he hatched it can not be foretold so early in the incubatory stage what the result will tie. One point, it seems, many of the would-be reorgan izers seem to lose sight of. ami that is ill be that tlie State troops are distinctly sol diers of their resiH-etive Commonwealths and that the Federal Government direct control, nor can ii have. The only way in which the proposed volunteer army of citlw-n soldiers can he had is by eli,-Iaging the present army law. to allow the formation of a volunteer army appor tioned among the several States, but sole ip under lie- jurisdiction of the War De partment. mul paid and maintained by the Federal Government.

Among the deafens recently lined for violation of the old ordinance was one whip swore that lie had never handled formaldehyde, never permitted any one on his farm to, nor had he added any adulteration to the fluid. Yet. the milk ho offered for sale was not up to the legal standard, and .hie was fined for violation of the ordinance. Severn', city dc-atlera talked to a rc porter for ti'.ic Kvenlng Journal Unis morning an the subject. "I think there can he no punishment too severe." said one, "for tlhe man who adulterates n-llk. To do so may mean deaith to many ohridren and long Ill ness to some pci sons. Wo have not (heard of any cases of formaldehyde poisoning by that name, hut who knows that many cases ot sickness have not lieen caused by the drinküng of milk «hat has been preserved by this poison. Consider what this matter means to (tie sick people of any city who are on milk diet. The fixing of 12 per cent as tho quantity of solid* to lie contained in all milk sold hero.
