Tbuse Wbo think tbat Rosooe Conkling, dlvesled of oOice, bas lot bis poiii leal significance, are reckoniig without their butt. Blame, hi. principal rival, runniug tbe ad ministration, and dealing oui j patronage right and left, to deetroj nia enemy, is really, if be knew it, • far less interesting figure tban *Conkiln.', who Is for tbe moment sgi erlenclng tbe sweet aud bitter usee of adversity. Tneie is, altti all, a generous impulse in tbe American people, aud it will make Its appearance with tbat sober ate oud thought which Maioy, with great sagacity, disoerned to bs one of tbeir leading characteristics These is a pretty broad intima tion, iv well Informed quarters, that Vice-President Arthur bs* be trayed bis benefactor and inventor, Roteoe Conkling. Tbis is a tblog aa to wbiob tbe ex-Senator can well affjrd to be Ind.fl*.rent, but a general btl af in lie truth would strand Arthur onoe and for all. Wben a man oonseula to be Vice- President he praotleally extin guishes blmtelf. Hs h«a but one ohaoee of earthly significance, and that lies In tbe death of tbe Presi dent. But a Vioe-President who ebould suffer himself to oetrsy tbe few friends be bas is doubly doom ed to disjomflturo. By ihe way, one ot tbe comedies of tbe Gulteau episode clusters around the sff o - log way Arthur was represented to have wept at the Idea of his becom ing President. Ihey all do It—all tbe Vice-Piesideuta wbo bave a ahanee of being made by acoideui or Providence President of the United States. Tiiey, without question, one and all, distill tear of unmixed agony at such a pot siblllty. OKI of the amusing features of tbe Republican Journal?, of late, Is tbeir sweet aud child-like belief tbat Miller and Lapham, from the word "go," will participate In tbe organisation of lbs Cuited States Seuata next Fail. As a matter ol fact, tbe credentials of these gen tlemen, according to Immemurlal usage, will le referred to the irip er committee, while tbe Seuate will proofed to orgauiie itself, Irre •piC iveof lbs New Yutk delega tion. Tba faot Is tbat there aie grave questions as to tbe ellgibi • lly of these men, and as to tbe rei ul.rity of their election. As, I y the Coiltltution of tba United States, bulb houses of Congress are mads the supreme judges of ihe qualifications of tbeir own mem bars, this breesy assumption of tbe Republican prsss is highly amus ing. It may be tbat the Demo, eratlo Senate, reoognl* ng the faot tbat oorruption and legerdemain •re Inevitable Inoidents of Reput liean politics, may dually admit Miller and Lapbam. But, by the time tbe questions arsmg from tbeir ehOtioo are thoroughly Inves tigated aid aojudged, the Senate Buy bave completed, its organiza tion on a Demi oratlc basis. Certainly there bat b*sn no time io the history of Los Angeles when tbe outlook was brighter fur botb city and county than now. From.conversations bad witb lead Ing manufacturers of wines and branJln we learn tbat Ibe prnspeci wti never better for blgb prioes for «s*4bs grape tban iblt year. While tt la true that tbe orange interest Is under a temporary eollpse, and while we belitva that all Interests IB B>ulbein California will ulti mately bs tuboi diuale to our vine yards, tbsre will again be a citrus revival. But the Increased oereal •rope of Los Angeles more tbsn make up for the lessened value of tbe orange". It bas at length been found out that our coast lands are la every respect eligible as wheat Mud barley producers. Tbe diy is ■Ot far dlstan'. when our pro duction of these valuable sta ple! will quintuple wbat It Is to day. Io addliloo, Los Angeles ta really tbs market garden of a region wblch extends Bast as far as KsnsM City. While tbe snow In oruste tb* ground at Denver and further Kast, our orange blossoms •re lo full b'uoai, and all ibe escu- Lents hereabouts are ripe and mar ke sble. Last year we reaped a Ing dispensation which will ulti mately enrich every Industrious man wboobugesto till tbe soli In Los Angeles county. If ever a grave event waa over shadowed by ridiculous incidents, ths late lamentable attempt toa. - saeslnate a President of lhe TJuiled .States Is a case In point. The last Issue of Frank Lwie't liluttraled surpasses all previous i ff irts in the lioe of absurdity. Iv addition lo a number ot lllustratlous which might bs regarded as admissible, ibtrels one double page cartoon wbicb represents Ihe attendants as iuthe act of shifting tbe Pr.s dant, and changing; his liueu aud mai trasses.

If there is some specially cfientlve syringe about ibe While House, Its nozzle ot g>il to be pointed at the fellows wi.o are devoting their limited abilitie to travesllug what very nearly proved to be a tragedy of national sigQiflcanne.

It was a gross mockery of Uw aud r gut. Tlie Constitution of tbe State of New Yotk says thst oo Federal official shall sit iuthe Legislature uf that State eitiier as Senator or Assemblyman, 'lueob- J-Ct of that provision in the organ ic law of the Empire Bta'e was to repel any unioe Federal Interf. r euce in State affairs.

An Atlanta paper reports tbe re cent tiuding, iv Rabun couuty, tieorgia, of au ametbyst bearing a diop of water or similar liquid Ih a cavity near the ceuter of tue stone.

Sciential* aud chemists who bave given their attention to tbe subjeot are universally of tbe opin ion that tbe ordinary fruit aolds, such as those contained in apples, tomatoes, rhubarb, lemons, etc., act upou tin, in proportion tothe intensity of the acid, and are further of tbe opinion that all such fruits preserved in tin cans and vtasels are poisoned to a greater or less degree by tbe action ot tbe acid in corroding tbe tin. In view of this fact the luveutor of a sub stitute for tin cans would doubt less make a fortuue in a very short time. The French Oovernment hits adopted a new ami novel ballot box A foreign exebauge states that it bas two locks, earth opening with a different key, and au appa ratus which clips a stub or jjoruer from the ticket deposited by the elector, aud drops tbe stub lutu one part of tbe box, the ticket, go- Idj; into the other division. Sim ultaneously tbe machine registers on a tablet before the voter tbe number uf tickets clipped.

While experimenting with tbe eleoirio light at Baltimore reoently to test its applicability for deep aatsr investigations, its power and u-eiulutgs was iv many ways very striking y tuauiftated.

The tests were made with a Brush apparatus, ope rated by un eight-horse-power en gine, mounted upon a scow and towed about the harbor by a tug boat. Treading Water. Hr. Henry MaoOormao, wbo re oeutly urged lv Nature "treading water" to prevent drowning, tbue replies to uoirespoudeuls wbo reo minuend teaching swimming in prefereuce: Let those wbo wlil gu lv for HWimmiog, and I wish sin cerely that everyone could swim. Treading water, however, conducts atohOsto swimmfog. Everyone oao tiead water who likes. It Is |nst as easy, if we only knew it, to tread water as to tread tho earth, and proximately Just as safe. Men aud women might walk into tbe deep sea aud out agalu when they p eased. Nature bas not been so n guard with us as some persona Itnugine. Why are we notaas*fe in tbe water as the don? it Is sim ply heeause be treads water aud we do not. In treading water tbe body Is erect, or nearly so; in swimming we sprawl and are com paratively helpless. The Admirals, both of them, bave given valuable testimony as regards the efficacy of treadiug water Before tbe pres ent pier at tbe C.pe was built, vessels in bad weather could not communicate with tbe shore, even by boats. Men, then, treading water amid ibe mountain seas, carried communications to and fro In oilskin caps. I have beard it was the same at Madras.

Not one woman lv ten thousand, not one man In a thou sand, I suppose, oan swim. Tbey do not know tbey can tread water wheu tbey fall in, and of oourse drown.
