A few years ago, a railroad brakeman in Min neapolis made some lucky option deals in wheat, made $20,000 or $30,000, resigned his pesition on the railroad and married a girl •omewhat above his former station. Lack tdrned against him, and he committed several forgeries. The state prison yawned for the speculator. Bat a woman's aud wife's great love came to the rescue, and when the oppor tunity offered she sacrificed her little savings, and paid the sum and bought her husba' d's freedom. But one escape did not bring him back to reason, and the divorce papers go on •av that he plnndered hia wife of her jewelry, valued at $ 00, and deserted and neglected her. The instance is only one of a dozen more of the utter financial wreck and of frequent moral destruction which are well known in Minneapolis and which fullowed the indulgence in dealiog in options. A Washington correspondent of the Chicago Times says of Jones, Guiteau'sassailant: 'The history of this man shows that he is as wretched character, perhaps, as Guiteau. Four years •go he was convicted of an unnamable crime, and sentenced. After his graduation from the penitentiary an old maid who owned a farm on the Bradensburg pike fell in love with Jones, and married him a few days after be left the penitentiary. The proceeds of the farm have supplied him with all the money he has needed to got drunk every dav. Ho is a wretobed looking character. His face is red, bloated and mottled bis eyes are small and bleared from constant dissipation his hair is coarse and black, and his dress that of an ordinary, low down eonutry-seat Controller Knox continues to hear good news from Boston and thinks the danger is over. The treasui department never shared the gen eral trepidation among eos'ern basinet* men, that a crash might be imminent The officials of the treasury bold as a rule that the basis of the country is exceedingly sound taken as a whole and was never so safe from danger bo fere. A little flurry in any city, therefore, wonld not frighten them. Mr. Knox baa in formation to the effect that even the wrecked Pacific bank of Boston has somejshowof righting itself and rejnming business. Secretary Folger has transferred E. J. Bab cock, who was private secretary to Secretaries Sherman and Windom, to a clerkship in the de partment. Mr. Babcock was the confidential friend of Mr. Sherman, and bis relations with what is generally known as the treasury ring, composed ot Upton, French,Power, Limbre, James and Tingle, were of closest description. As a private secretary to Judge Folger he was in position to report, if he saw fir, the doings of his chief to the deeply interested subordinates. The rivalry between tho western candidates gives Mr. Dunnell the only hope he can enter tain of being eleoted speaker of the house.

Tho London Times says: We are unwilling to relinqnish the hope of improvement in Ire Ian 1, but cannot close our eyes to the fact that the most recent evidence points in the opposito direction. It is only too plain that after a briof iuterval of hesitation, a considerable section of the people have decided to adhere to the policy of the no-rent mauifesto. It is idle to expect to restore order by holding out the hope of a geu eral reduction of rents. The means at tho dis posal of the government are boundless, and they are backed by the resolute spirit of the wholo population of Great Britain. If the ex isting powers of the executive are inadequate, others must be granted. One thing only is im possible, that Ireland should bo delivered over to a lawless faction openly aiming at the dis ruption of the union. Sevoral newspapers a'ate that at a parlia mentary dinner Bi^msrck observed thathe ap prehended no conflict with the reicli stas during the present session, and did not contemplate a dissolution. The bills announced in the imperial message, he said, would not be dealt with all at once. Consideiable time would be required to dispose of them. If he should be UL able to carry out his irojoots, he would confine himself to foreign affaire and appoint a vice chancellor for the home depart ment. At a parliamentary dinner Bismarck main tained that the recent elections should by no means bo taken as a condemnation of the policy of the government, as, reckoning by the 'num ber of votes polled, the conservatives alone among the principal political parties scored a substantial increase as compared with the elec tions of 1*78. This year the conserva'ives polled 870,358 votes, against 749,494 in 1878. The threatened litigation between the Baro ness Burdett-Courts and relatives is averted. All the counsel considered that she married a foreigner which she could not do in the times of the duches' will without renouncing her in rerest in Court's bank. The baroness ha*, tberefi. levied her half share in the bank, but will continue to receive a small annual al lowance as compensation. The funeral of the late Eirl of Airlie who died at Denver,Col., was held at his former home, Carlochy Castle, Scotland, November 4, in real highland fashion, the Clan Ogilvie, with pipers playing the clan's lament, following the remains to the grave. General Losan's Acquaintance With Gaite.m Senator Logan explains in an interview: The first time I eaw Guiteau was in Wash ington, in March last, when a man came to my house barefooted, with sandals on, and without stockings. There was snow onthe ground. He excused bis appearacco by saying he lived close by. He gave mo a speech on Lincoln vs Gar field, requesting as a personal favor that I would read it To get rid of him I said I would, do so. The next day he called again, and after letting me know what a great and important man he was, i-sked what I thought of hisspeech. I replied I had not had time to rend it. This put him in a rage, and at the same time opened my eyes to the fact that I was dealing with a crank. To get rid of him I told him I would read the speech that very night I did not see him again lor several weeks, whan he called and presented me a written application he said he intended put on file at the state department asking for the position as consul general at Paris. He said he had sbown it to Secretary Blaine, and Blaine had promised to give him the place if I would sign the application. I re fused to sign it on the ground thaWlkaew noth ing of him. This threw Guiteau into a rage again. He drew himself up in oratorical style and flourish aud told me he was Charles Gui teau, lawyer and politician, and intimate friend of all the prominent men of the republican par ty, and forme not to know bim was to argue myself unknown. He got ac abusive that I fi nally ordered him out of my rooms, and gave orders not to le: him enter again. Mississippi River improvement Committee. Hon. MarkH.

Another Star Router Arrested. A Washington dispatch says that Alvin O. Buck, a star route contractor in the Boone com bination which controls nearly a thousand small star routes, has been arrested at the in stance of the star route prosecutors and has given bis recognizance to appear when wanted. The charge against him is understood to be that he gave worthless bonds. In one case he was declared a failing contractor and in default $26,000. His bond was found te be worth less. He offered to compromise at $2,000 and the authorities assented to his proposition and procured the approval of the postmaster gen eral It is supposed that Buck it wanted as much as a witness against Lilley before the grand jury as on account of the prospective proceedings against himself. Jadge Cox of Washington. Judge Walter & Cox, before whom Guiteau is on trial, is absnt forty-five years of age. He was born in the District of Cotumoia.

'ihe Oreat Quest Ion ot Guiteau's Sanity Now Under Con-ill. ration by the Court at Washington. Guiteau Is Playing the In.anlty Dodgo for 1 All It li Worth. Test'mony Showing that Ha Has Been a HarJ Citizen, I.uiialla or Otherwise. WEDNESDAY, NOV. 23. When the oourt opened Boovllls mad* formal request for the papers taken from Qui tesu at the time of bis arrest stating tbftt tne were material evidence lor tna cerenfs, ana since the prosecution had not needed them, he could see no reason why they should be with held. The district attorney offered to furnish copies of tbepapers, but Scoville insisted upon his light in the matter, and asked for the origi nals. Pending the discussion, Guiteau in sisted upon being heard and said: '"Thereare forty to fifty slips denouncing Presi dent Garfield. It was by living on such ideas as these rhat I was finally impelled on to Bhoot tho president with my inspiration." Scoville, resuming, alluded to Guiteau's ca reer as a oittMa.i, ana arew me conclusion that his intellect was doficicnt When reference was mado to his running arnund from one committee room to -nother, seeking to be employed as a campaign speaker, and hi failure to obtain recognition was men tioned, Guiteau nhouted angrily, "It wasn't be cause I bad no ability, but I was nj}t known. I aad ideas, but not a oi.u ation. They wanted big guus like General Grant and Senator Conk ling—men who would draw." Th?n, in direct contradiction of bis counsel's declaration to the jury joaterday, that Guiteau was a man who never made a joke in hia life, he looked up with an amused smile, and added: '"I presumi to draw now." This provoked gen eral laughter, which was promptly suppressed by the court, who struggled hard to disguise a smile on his own features. After various in terruptions Mr. Snoville finished bis speech. At tho request of the district attorney the witnesses tor the defense were excluded from tbe court room, with the exception of Mrs. Scoville. The prosecution, at the request of Mr. Scoville, made an exception in her case. Tue first witness for the defense, H. N. Barton, was then examined. He testified he did not think the prisoner so deranged as to be irresponsible. H. M. Davis, of Erio, Pa., testified to a knowledge of insanity of one of Guiteau's aunts. Thomas Wilooxson, ot Frceport, III, knew Guiti au'a father aad described nis peculiarities. Dr. John A Bice, of MertoD, Wis., a practic ing physician of twenty-six years, testified he xamiued the prisoner in 1876, and came to the couclusiou he was insane. His insanity was emotional rather than intellectual. Frank L. Union, of Boston, testified to hiring Guiteau to speak at Investigator ball. His bills S. ioclaimed: "Do not fail to hear Hon. Charles Guiteau, tho little giant from the west He will show that two-thirds of the race are going do«n to perdition." The Prisoner—That is a liberal estimate. [Laughter. Witness—There were about fifty persons at the lecture. At Ihe end of half an hour the lecturer evidently became disgusted with him self aud left in a great hurry. After h&had gone the auaience agreed that tbe man was crszj. Mary ft. Lockwood of Washington s'ated that the prisoner lad boarded at her house in March, 3881. Tho only reason she knew of his leav ing was that he did not pay his board. The wituess stated that Guiteau was abrupt in bis manner, and at ihe table there was want of etiquette. Georgo W. Olds of Michigan testified to Mrs. Scov.llo charging Guiteau with being crazy and Baying ho had attempted to kill her, asking the wituess to put him oil the place. Adjourned to Friday. rMDAY, NOV. 28. The assisuin, continued his monkoy busi ness, but less attention was paid to it, and ass result it grew less frequent and less pronounced. Once, to be sure, he became vei obstreperous, but he was quieted by a few words from th£ bench to the effeot that gigging had been found to be efficacious wheu a prisoner talked more than was dceirablo. Mrs. Blaine and Mis? Bacbel Shorman were tho prominent ladies, and Gen. Buggies and Third Assistant Secreta ry of State Walker Blaine the prominent gen tleman of society present. Guiteau ob ained permission to read a long, rambling disjointed statement about his record and life. Ho said: Any fact in my career bordering on the question as to who fired that shot, the Deity or myself, is of vital impor tance in this case, and I propose that it go to the jury. Hence my personal, political and theological record may be developed. I am glad that your honor and the opening counsel are disposed to give a historical review of my record and ask the press and the public to do likewise. All I want la ausblTue Jusuoe, and I shall not permit any crooked work. CbaHles H. Reed nf Cliictgo talked very en tertainingly about Us experience with the as sassin. He testified that ho wa-i a lawyer, had live! in Chicago and I a 1 been slate attorney there twelve years ago. He first reo ollected the prisoner on his appo trance as a lawyer. Did not remember ex amining him for admission at tbe bar. The prisoner appeared to defei:d a small case wbiue ho (Uned) was prosecuting. Atter the evidence was adduced the witness said to the court that there was no necessity for argu ment Guiteau insisted upon being heard,and tbe oourt allowed bim to talk. He (Reed) testified at great length concerning Guiteau's peculiarities. He saw the prisoner here last summer and had an interview with bim on tbe Tuesday before •he shooting. The prisoner came to the BiggB houie to see the witness ouched his (the wit ness) shonlder and said he wauted to see him alone. The witness stepped aside with him. He said "Mr. Beed, I owe you ¥3 I want to liorrow $15 more from you, that will make $50, and when I get that place I'll pay you." The witness asked him what place, and Guiteau replied. "Consul to Paris." The witness asked him tr tie had not given up that idea, and he •aid "no." Holding up his hand, he said: "You say I won't get that place? Now you watch the newspapers for a few daj aud yon will see my name sentin lor confirmation.'' The prisoner jooked haggard add friendless. Usually he was very neat in his personal appearance, but at that time he was seedy. The witness described the interview with the prisoner at the ja 1. Guiteau was lying down, and when the witness asked him why he shot tbe president, he rose from his coueb and be gan in a very excited manner a sort of incohe rent speech. He said: "I didn't do it the Lord aid it He ueed me as an instrument for tbe salvation of tbe party, by the re moval of the President"" The witness asked why he used the word removal in stead of killing, and he (the prisener) said that "removal" was the right word. The prisoner was pale. His eyes had an indlscribable look, and the witness concluded thathe was of un sound mind. He had no doubt of it The wit ness concluded, after the Biggs house Inter view, that the prisoner was off his balance men ially. It was very difficult to determine wheth er Guiteau was responsible or not He would not like to give an opinion on thai He bad never said since the shooting that he thought the prisoner responsible. Thomas North of Chioago, a lawyer, former ly living in Freeport, also related peculiarities of W. Guiteau and stating he could not re gard bim as a right man. Scoville asked the witness how the prisoner and his father com pared in regard to personal and men'al charac ter istics. He expected to prcve that father and son were fac similies. "Dr." or Judge North was a very wily wi ness, and got in some work for the defense. He said that Gniteau was an exaggerated simile of his father: "Q. From vour acquaintance with this prisoner, what nave you to sayaa to bis sincerity? A. I never saw anything in him that I thought hypocritical or dishonest His father was one of the moet intensely sincere men I ever knew." The witness went on: One evening at the supper table they were all seated except the prisoner. Certain graceful things were to be said or done. I mean saying grace. The Prisoner—Tell them how they used to do that how they used to confess Christ there. I want to get that out The Witness (to Scoville—Shall I answer that? Mr. Scoville—Certainly. The Witness—They were all seated around the table and they were all quiet for a few mo ments. and then if anybody felt like saying any thing he did so. If not, nothing was said What was usually said wss: "I confess Christ in me with a thankful heart for this boon." The Prisoner—Thank Christ for this dinner and all similar expressions that was substituted for ordinary grace fn Christian families. The witness assented and went on to relate how Charles Guiteau, or Julius,.as they called him then, came te the table late and was spo ken to by his father in a peremptory and of fensive tone, and bow Charles, passing behind his father's chair, struck bis father in the back or neck, and how his father at onoe jumped from bis chair how the two clinched and strug gled until finally Charles surrendered, and then how they withdrew from the table by themselves, talked the matter over, came back and went on with their meaL This was a sud den outburst on both sides. The witness related how at a religious and social circle the old gentleman related how himself and wife were ready to join tbe Oneida community, but were violently opposed in so aotng by a eon of twenty or twenty-Ore years. Lather Guiteau jumped from his seat and said, "Take a knife and stab him as Abraham did Isaac." His manner was exceedingly shocking aad parli«ml tbe tohguea of every one pres ent The witness spoke of the prisuuer when an of fi boy. He noticed offense egotism as though be desired to do mare than be wsa really cap able of doing. He wished to usurp this du ties of other deputy elsika. Hia arealsat quality aeaaad to be that of Vtstm nst OB te imUtf sheet Ateahw Jt~- uuiteau, Luther's brother, lie said bis condi tion of mind was so weak that it was not cafe to trust him with business. The whole family were made out aa about half insane on some points. Adjourned to Saturday. SATURDAY, NOV. 29., Tho witnesses to-day were Thomas W. North, whose examination was begun yesterday Sen- ator^^a^Ge""D.WBtabb»rd, aTarmar'froni ^revealed the prk.y pictufe At least Oneida county, N. Y. Edmund M. Bmitb, a Chicago lawyer John Moss, a colored gentle man, and Mrs. Francis M. Scoville, wife of tbe attorney for the defense and sister of the prisoner. The examination of the latter, who is a very intelligent woman, was not concluded when tbeconrt adjourned. Mr. North was cross-examined very olosily aud at great lougth by Davidge. Guiteau interrupted at several times, and pro tested that there .was no truth in witness' story. Witness was qnestiono in relation to a fi^nt between Guiteau and hia father, L. W. Gui teau. He had a good memory and oould re member most anytbiug, but could not recall any such scene. During a lull in the proceedings, Guiteau said: "I notice my lriend, Henry Ward Beecher, is doing some cranky work on this case. I used to attend bis church and pray meetings, and if your honor knew him aa I do, you would not pay any attentiou to him. There are a good mauy peoule who think he is badly oranked socially, aniTI have no fleuEl that Mr#. '1'ilton told the truth aud Mr. Beecher lied about it, aud I tell him s» publicly." The next wituess was Senator John A. Logan of Illinois. As he was tworu the prisoner fam reeted him with "How arc yon, Mr. Senator? glad to tee you." Cmn. Logan detailed interviews with Guiteau, who gave him a speech entitled Garfiuld vs. Hancock. Tbe prisoner then said, "That speech elected Garfield presi dent of tbe United States." Guiteau wanted Logan's influence to get him the poeition of consul general to Frauoe, wlilch Logan declined to give. The prisouer thon lookout of his pooket a sheet of foolscap with about three lines written very close to the top. It was a recom mendation for his appointment He wanted tbe witness to sign it, "but the witness declined and got rid ot hiui as uoon as he conld. In the cross-examination Gen. Logan sa'd he thought at the time there was some derangement iu Guiteau's meutal organization, but to what extent be could not say. Guiteau had gone to board in tbe house with Logan, and he told tho landlady: "I do not think he is a proper person to have in your boarding house." She asked why. I said "I think he is a little off iu his head," or some language of tbat kind. She a"ked what I meant, and I said I thought be was kind of crazy, and she had not better have him iu the boai diug house. Edmund E. Smith, employed in the Bepubli can national committea rooms during the late presidential campaign, thought Guiteau very peculiar, flighty, aud rambliug in conversation. John a Morse, a colored attorney-at-law, saw Guiteau at the White House during Maroh and April and look him to be a crazy man. Mrs. Scoville, sister of Guiteau, then took the stand and gave a biographical sketch of Guiteau's life from his eat ly childhood. She went to Ann Arbor to see him, aa she bad been informed tiiat he was going on worse than hii father had donei She found that be had aban doned his studies and was giving his whole time aud atteution to studying Korean and the pub lications of the O.ieida community. She argued with him for a whole eveuing, appealing to him to go quietly and like other young men and give up tbat stuff. Her appeals had no effeot upon him, however, and she made up her mind that he was orazy. She related the incident of his attacking her with an ax. She bad given him no provocation, but bad got out of patience with him. It was not the ax that frightened her so muoh as it waB look of his face. Ho looked like a wild animal. While the examination was in progress the court adjourned. MONDAY, NOV. 28. Mrs. Scoville resumod her testimony. She described Guiteau's actions during bis visit to iler in 1878, and said she was then convinced he was insane and should bo put iu an asylum. Geo. D. Burroughs, of Chicago, testified that he boarded with the Smvilles at the time of Gui teau's visit iu 1878, and made up hia mind that the prisoner was either a fool or crazy. He was satisfied Guiteau was unsettled in in intellect Gnitea liero said: I desire to tell all these crank newspaper men that I appear here as my own counsel. Th 41 is my answer to all the sillv stuff they have been delivering them selves ot for some days past Some of these newspaper men have gone crazy. I appear here in part as my own counsel as I have the right to do under the law and consti tution of America." C. S Jocelyn, of the Oneida community, thought Guiteau's marked characteristic was intense egotism. John W. ha,f the floor Guiteau, brother of tho prisoner, was next examined. He had uot been on good terras with his brother for a number of years, but had uo doubt of his sanity until be received some let ters in October. Since he had come on here and had Been his brother in the court room and at the jail, he had become satisfied that he was insane He heard his uncle Abraham was in sane. His uncle Francis Wilson Guiteau, men tioned in the family as a Francis Guiteau sec ond, died in an asvlnm. Besides Abby May nard, daughter of his Aunt Julia, and Augusta Paiker, who was a cousin of witness, had never heard of any other case of ius inity iu the fam ily. Coming back to the subject of his uncle, Abraham Guiteau, witness stated that when he saw him last iu 1867, he was "off his base" very badly. Sarah Parker, of Chicago, w.'dow of Augus tus aud cousin of the prisouer, testified tiiat her husband died in an in sane asylum. The prisoner aud his wife came to her house in Chicago. She had requested the prisoner to cease visiting her house because he had pro posed to educate her daughter so as to marry lier. This was in 1876. Soon after, her hus band became insane. Fred Jones of Chicago boarded at tbe same house with Guitean, aud had been one of the board of trustees who had supervision of tho insane asylum at Jacksonville, 111., considered Guiteau of unsound mind and what some au thorities would call in a stato of incipient in sanity. The prisoner was then sworn and took the stand and identified a lot of letters written by himself, father, liis sister, Mrs. Scoville, and hia brother J. W., and to Mr. Scoville. Their identification having been completed, court adjourned. IN AN OrlUM DEN. Scenes ol a Night At a Mucli-Vrequfiilvd Ki-sort.—How the Devotees of the Deadly DruiEitlof Tliemge.ves.—Iu Solemn Stu por "Dreaming tlie Happy Hours Away.' Exchange. I suppose a powerful, able-bodied Afri can, raving drunk, is about as ugly an il lustration of the depths of degradation to which intoxicating liquids can reduce a hu man creature as the most Zealous Lawsonite could make use of. I am sure of this, however,[that Sambo at his worst and when bis opal eye-balls, rolling in frenzy, gleam like the jewel to which they are likened when it is exposed to the sun or to the fire, and when his protruding lips shrink back and look as hard as ridges of black bone, hedging his double row of vicious teeth, even then he is not such a repulsive look ing being as tbe yellow-skinned opium smoker after his third or fourth drunk, when he is propped by the considerate landlord against the wall, with legs no more avail able than those of a rag doll, here to remain until consciousness slolwy returns to him, when he will take a swig at the water jug to moisten his parched mouth and go at the pipe again. The u-ly spectacle, however, is not commonly on view. To behold it one must first gain ad mittance to a smoke-house. Unlike a pub lic house, no sign distinguishes it, and its whereabouts is known only to the initiated. But the habitual opium smoker knows where to find it, and thither he resorts to snatch perhaps a couple of hasty pipes if he has pressing business on hand, or to make a night of it—two, three nights and days of It as well, for that matter—in con genial company. I had not much trouble in discovering two smoking-houses in the locality, the master of one being NOT A CHINAMAN BUT AN IKISHMAN. I told him what I required and he sug gested no obstacles. I was as welcome as anybody else to come to his house and to smoke a pipe as well as if I had a mind to it. Evening was his busiest time. A few regular customers who lived in different pai ts of London aud had honored him with their patronage for years, came -for a quiet pipe in his best room in the day time, but it was not until about ansk that the com mon sort came, and then he was sometimes so full as to be obliged to turn people away. At dusk that same evening I was again in the neighborhood. The house I was in quest of was situated in what notoriously is tbe woisi part of the locality—np a court in a street, the majority of the inhabitants of which are probably known to the police. Had I been in any doubt as to which was the particular court where my opium master lived, IN rniiii OPIDSI SMOKING WAS GOING ON BLAST. It was not a large apartment—not more than fifteen or sixteen feet square, possiWy but a hasty Rlanse around revealed to me thir teen individuals present, exclusive of the master of the house and an attendant. A diney paraiffine lamp hancing ugainst the w«8 covered with a large mat- a re id a re re placed-bolstors as dirty as the walls them- selves and huddled nose and knees, with their heads on the bolsters, two on a side, reclined six smokers in various Btuges of in toxication with the opium they are inhail in£. There are two long forms in the loom, and on one of them sat five customers, wnit ing their turn (tho remaining two making the thirteen were lying on the floor by the wall motionless, as men asleep or dead), and beiug in no particular hurry to rest ray head on a bolster, I took a back seat, but in full view of the mattress. The opium master's aFsistunt, a ragged youth without coat cr waistcoat, and who seemed to have stirred his hair to the wildest possible dis order in an opium dream, was concocting something in a pipkin that stood on the hob of the fire-grate, when one of the im patient waiters and watchers drew his at tention toasnieker whose pipe-stem had dropped from his lips, nnd who lay helpless and hideous, with his mouth ajar, and with a failing phosphorescent light in his half opened eyes. Well used to the job, the attendant hauled him off the mattress and laid him with the other two by the wall, while the first man on the form SPKANG FORWARD WITH ALACRITY TO TAKE HIS PLACE, and with a face expressive of blissful ex pectation, resigned himself to the following ceremony: Unbuttoning his jacket, and divesting himself of his cap, he lay down on his side, with one hand un 3er his bead, as though composing himself to sleep, while the presiding genius got a pipe ready. With a bodkin he took from a saucer a portion of opium, Heemingly no larger^ than a moderate-sized pea, and holding it on the point of the instrument, twiddled it in tho Sime of the lamp causing it to emit a sickening odor. When the morsel wos sufficiently fried he placed it in a pipe bowl, and thrusting the pipe stem into the eager month of the smoker, applied alight to it, while tha other sucked. Sucked is the word. Anything like blowing a cloud, Buch as happens when ono ignites the favorite birdseye in tho bowl of a brier or meer schaum, or even a clear and honest clay, was out of the question. The Lascar's lips closed over the blunt stem as though they wore glued to it, nnd one»only judged that be was sticking by the drawing in of his cheeks. I observed the pipe narrowly, and could discern only the thinnest thread of pale blue smoke ris ing now and again from its bowl. What fumes there were the smoker swallowed, as hi4 eyes blinked lazily, and each moment more resembled that of a pig whose last gorge of barley meal was a treat to dwell ou ere it fell asleep! 1 am unable to say ex nctly how long it took to consume the smouldering opium, but certainly not more than eight or nine minutes. At the end of that time a gurgling in the pipe-stem ANNOUNCED THAT THE CHARGE WAS BURNT OUT, and, for the time, completely drnnk and in capable, the smoker wus bundled off the mattress to make room for the next custom er. I don't know bow long the two that were on the floor when I entered had been lying there, but they now began to rouse, shivering and shrinking in their clothes as th ugh they felt cokl, and staring at each other and about the room in a bemused way as though their brains were still fud dled" with the powerful narcotic. Nor did they appear to recover completely until the tattered waiter handed them each a small cigarette of ordinary tobucco. After smoking it out they rose from the floor, sho ilt them selves, and took a seat in the form readjjr for another "drunk" when it came to their turn. They did not talk with each other during tbe long interval of waiting, or ap pear in the least inclined to be companion able, but, for the most part, sat with their eyes closed and their arms folded,as thongh anxious to shut out everything that might break the thread of their cogitations on pipes past and in prospective. Hoir Postage Stamps Are Made. The number of ordinary postage stamps issued in 1881 was 954,128,410, and the value $24,010,643. The method of print ing postage stamps is described in the Scientific American lis folio ws: The print ing is done from steel plates, on which two hundred stamps are engraved, and the paper nsed is oi a peculiar texture, some what resembling that employed for bank notes. Two men cover the platns with colored inks and pass them to a man and girl who print them with large rolling haad presues. Three of these little squads are employed all tho time, although ten presses can be put in operation, it necessary The colors used in the inks are ultra-marine blue, Prussian blue, (gre«n), vehnillion and carmine. After the sheetR of paper on which the 200 stamps are engraved have been dried, they are sent into another room and gummed. The gum used is made ot the pow der of dried potatoes and other vegetables mixed with water. Gnm aiabic is not de siiable, because it cracks the paper badly. The sheets are gummed seperately, they are placed back upward upon a flat wooden support, the edge being separated by a_ me tallic frame, and the glim is applied with a wide brush. After having been again dried, this time on littlo racks, which are fanned by steam power for about an hour, they are put in between sheets of pasteboard, and pressed between hydraulio presses, capable of applying a weight of 2.0IJ0 tons. The sheets are next cut in halves each sheet, of course, when out contains 100 stamps. This is done by a girl with a large pair of shears, cutting by hand being pre ferred to that of machinery, which method would destroy too many stamps. They are then passed to the perforating machine. The perforations between the stamps are effected by passing the sheets between two cylinders p-ovided with a series of raised band- which are adjusted to a distance apart equal to that required between the rows of perforations. Each ring on the up per cylinder has a series of cylindrical projections which fit corresponding de pressions in the bands of the lower cylin der by these the perforations are punched out, and by a simple contrivance the sheet is detached from the cylinders, in which it has been conducted by an endless band. The rows running longitudinally of the paper are first made, and then by a similar machine the transverse ones. This perfor ating machine was invented and patented by a Mr. Arthur in 1852,and was purchased by the government for $20,000. The sheets are next dressed once more, and then packed and labeled and stowed away in another room, preparatory to being put up in mail-bags for dispatching to fulfill or deis. If a single stimp is torn or in any way maltilated the whole sheet of 100 is burned'. Five hundred thousand are burned every week from this cause. The sheets are counted no less than eleven times during tbe process of manufacturing, and so great is the care taken in counting that not a single eheet bas been lost during the past twenty years. Why Ihe Von Steuben's were Invited to America. I have not yet stated to anybody," said Secretary Blaine in conversation recently with a personal friend, "how it happened that the Von Steubens were invited to the Yorktown celebration. I should have been speedily set right, fer at that very moment there came shuffling np the street two gaunt objects, Lascars seemingly, with their flimsy bine serge jackets buttoned close, and each with a woollen comforter round his throat, thongh the evening was close and sultry. Thiy made straight for Ihe court, and were in such a hurry that they reached the smoke house aad disappeared in at the door before I conld overtake them. The door was ajar, and as I bad Bade an appointmert with the landlord, I walked is without a scrapie, and at the end of a passage there found a room where -r- s* ~?j&- «s? .i 5 w. r\ "iV-.sj.-i'.. A ,v .v:.:-. •. ... '. Ea&t&f a I remember that about eight days before tho shooting of Garfield, he and I took a walk together. We had just sent out the invitation to the French. I suggested to the president that, considering the large German ele ment in this country, it would be quite proper if we should include in our invita tion the descendants of Baron Von Steu ben, who also had taken nn important part in bringing about the surrender at York town, and whose name appears among those honorably mentioned by Washington in his dispatch announcing the resnlt. President Garfield thought that it would be no more than jost to include the Germans, and then extend through the German gov ernment an invitation to the relatives of Baron Von Hteuben. I am not sorry for hvvi ng done so. For the Von Stnbens have behaved thro nghont very handsmely." —I Mgr. Firmoee, prelate of the household of Pope Leo XIII, is in Montreal He expresses tho opinion that his holiness will ere long change his residence to Malta or Salebury.

Some Remarkable Instances ol the Healing Power ofFuith. A writer in the Saturday Review says: This healing power of laith, which doctors are day by day admitting more as a reality, throws light on the popularity of the mira ole wells and healing shrines on the contin ent, and forbids us to oondemn as mei random lying the tales that are told of the astonishing cures affected by them. There are many such pilgrimage wolls in Scot land cited by Mr. Gregor, although their efficacy was supposed to be an inherent vir tue in the water, and not dependent on the favor of the saint. Some of these wells were surrounded by stones shaped like tho several parts of the human body, called the "eye-stone," the "headstone," and so on and it was a necessary part of the treatment, after washing with water, to rub the part affected against the stone that boro the same form. This is the superstition of the Vni-stone in the New Hebrides. Some offering was always left behind by those who tried the curing powers of the water, even if it were only a rag from tbe patients^ clothes. These tributes were hung up' near the well.and every one abstained from disturbing them, as it was believed tha^, whoever did so wonld pet the disease that» had been enred in tue former patient. Just tbe same sort of thing was done as early as the time of the Romans. Votive offerings of hands, feet, almost every part «f the body, have been excavated in tbe island. sacred to JSsculapins in tbe Tiber.' The1 mode of cure in vogne then, however, was for tbe patient to go to sleep on the 'sacred spot, when it was revealed to him in a vis ion what be must do to insuro recovery. Among the oures for the whooping-cough, which are very numerous and improbable, we do not observe one which was in favor in some parts of Scotland. This was to sew a living caterpillar between two pieces., of flannel, and wrap it round the patient's throat.leaving room for the animal to crawl round. By the time the grub died the wooping-cough was cured. Tnree roasted mice were an infailible cure for the whoop ing-cough. The same remedy is still much esteemed in Norfolk. There, however, swallo ing one mouse is considered qnite enongh. The charmer' of warts is one of those perfeotly unreasonable modes of cure that often prove efficacious when medical treat ment faiis. Dr. Carpenter cites as an in stance of this strange truth the case of a girl who was cured of twelve warts by a friend who merely counted them, and then with an ail of importance wrote the num ber down on a paper, assuring her by Sun day they would all have disappeared. And so it proved. By the day named they were all gone, though the girl's father, himself a' surgeon, had before tried to remove them with caustic and other applications in vain. If so very simple a prescription was enough to charm away a dozen of those unpleasant excrescences, we cannot wonder that the more elaborate forms of exorcism here enu merated should prove equally effioacions. In Switzerland the approved mode of charm ing a wart is to rub it with a snail, and then put the snail on a thorn bush. Indeed, charm cures for other diseases are not by any means ob.ioltta. In Yorkshire it is btill believed that a set of mole's feet tied in a bug and worn about the neck keeps away crimps. And it is quite accepted as a fact by some persons that to carry a pota to in the pocket secures immunity from rheumatism. These cures, like tbe mira cle wells, prove thut the will, it concen trated in sufficient force, has tbe power to cure any local affection of the body. The most remarkable ease of this on record is the way in which tho Prince of Orange cured the garrison of Breds of the scurvy by sending them a small vial decoction of cammomile, wormwood and camphor. It wus diluted with a gallon of water to every three drops of the tincture, and served out as medicine to the sufferers, who from that day began to recover. Scientific Notes. Electric lightning is in successful opera tion on more t^an sixty steamers of the Mississippi Biver and its tributaries. It is believed to add much to the safety of that kind of traffic and traveling. According to Mr. Fairthorne, benzine may be freed from all offensive odor by shaking it up well with quicklime—about three ounces to the gallon. The actual gold yield of California since its discovery in 1848 is a matter that can never be asceitaiucd, but it is ofreeord thut the amount deposited in the Mint up to 1880 was over $900,000,000. A sewing maohine has just been invented by an Englishman, the btitch of which is exactly like hand-sewing. This machine is Slid to mike from 2,000 to 5,000 stitches a minute according to the number of needles used. H. C. Hovey says: "The f.rst snceessful attempts at canning fish, fruit and vegeta bles were made at Eastport, Maine, about the year 1840. The honor of this pioneer work (as I am informed by D. I. Odell, British vice consnl, Eastport,) is to be shared between Charles Mitchell, who brought the idea with him from Scotland, and U. S. Treat, who employed him and furnished the requisite capital to carry on the experiments. Utist may often be removed from steel tools by immersing them in kerosene oil for a few days. This loosens the dust so tbat it may be rubbed off. Where the rnst is not very deep-seated emery paper will do, but if of long standing the tools mast be re finiBhed. The Northern Pacific railroad oompany and the Oregon railwayand navigation com pany hnve united in putting a scientific ex ploring expedition in the field, for the pur pose of examining into the mineral, agrical-, tural and other resources of the territory, tributary to the two companies between' Lake Superior and the Paci'fic coast. Prof. Raphael Pumpelly, until now in charge of the coal and iron department of the late national census, has been appointed chief of the expedition, and has already started from Montana to examine the principal mining districts in that Territory. The work of the expedition will extend through several years. A SNEEZING SCENE. The Efhet on Mary Amltnon of Her Ingo •uar's Insoct Powder. From the New York Meroory. Probably one of the meanest stage trioks that was ever played was played on Mury Anderson. It will be reniambered that in the play of "Ingomw," Parthenia and the barbarian have several love scenes, where they lop on each other and hug some—that is, not too much hugging, but just liugsing enough, lngo mar wears a hnge fur garment, made of lion's skin, or something. One day he noticed that Ihe moths were getting into it and he told his servant to see about the moths and drive them out. The servant got some insect powder and blowed the hair of the garment full of it, and scrub bed the inside of it with benzine. Ingo mar put it on just before he went on the stage, and thought it didn't smell jnst right, but he had no time to inquire into it. He had not got fairly into his position before Par thenia came out on a hop, skip, and jump, and threw herself all over him. She got one lung full of insect powder and the other full of benzine, and as she said, "Wilt always love me, Ingomar?" she dropped her head over his shoulder and said in an aside, "For the love of heaven, what have you been drinking?" aad then she sneezed a couple of times. Ingomar held her up the best he could, considering that his nose was full of insect powder, and he answered, "I wilt," and then he said to her quietly, "Dam-fino what it Is that smells so." They went on with the play between sneezes, and when the curtain went down she told Ingomar to go out aad shake himself, and he did. It was nodoed in the rext act that Ingomar had a HUM ulster sn, and Mary snoie no more. Interview With Gniteau'* Ex-Wife. Mrs. Dunmere,formerly the wife of Guiteau, was interviewed on her way to Washington to testify. She said she hid been twice summoned to go to Washington, and obeyed tbe second summons. She was sent for by the prosecution. To questions whether s)ie regarded Guiteau is insane when he was her husband (from 1869 to 1 "76) she answered: "Oh, no he wss of a peculiar temperament, very irritable when he oould not have his own way. bnt he is perfect ly accountable for all he did. He was1 not in any way less sane than most men am He wss very vain he liked to have people talk about bim, and alwavs tijoved any kind of notoriety. Why, he enjoys all this notoriety be has now, and is delighted to have bis name in tbe papers and to think the people of the United 8tates are talking abont bim. He never mentioned in sanity in his family, and wonld have resented such a gBBcsattoalfr otfeega." -w-cr- i •f FUBIT-SETENTH CONGKERS.

The triumph of machinery in its appli cation to the manufacture of simple articles is well illustrated in the history of the paper bag. Twenty-five years ago the lim ited amount of paper bags in use were made by hand. And it probably never oc curred to the ninety-and-nine conservative ones that there was any necessity of im proving the method. It would oertainly never pay to apply machinery to so insig nificant nn artiole as a paper bag, a men joining of paste and paperl Yet inventive skill tried its hands, and the result waa a machine capable of turning off 100,000 bags a day. What followed was the same as in hundreds of industries similarly affected. Bag factories sprang up, and no sooner did the supply exist than a demand was created. New uses were discovered for the artiole, and to-day the annual consumption in tha United States, in round numbers, is ons billion. At the same time the price has been reduced to a mere fraction above tha cost of the paper. Of tha one billion paper bags annually produoed in this country, more than three-fourths are turned out of eight factories, whose conbined capacity is about five million per day. Since tha ap plication of machinery to the mauafacture of paper bags, the greatest revolution in the industry has been wrongh by ths in vention of a machine to manufacture what is called the "satchel-bottom" bag, in which the bottom is so shaped that the twp protruding corners of the old-style bag are avoided. Certain bags can be bought in large quantUiee at one-seventh of a oent apiece, and even lower, the advanoe being about twonty or thirty oenta per thousand over the price of paper. Charles H. Northam, president of the Mercantile National bank, of Hartford, died last week. He was also president of the Hartford Hospital, director and member of tho finance committee of the Pbcenix In snrance company, trustee of Trinity Col lege, and held many other positions of the same general nature. Ho was a man of large wealth, and recently gave Trinity Col lege a fund of $40,000 HENRY VESSEY, -DEALER IN— General Merchandise! ELDRIDCE, D. T.
