A Letteu from Santiago de Cuba says 10,000 to 15,000 Cubans have joined the insurgent armies siuce the aassluation of Macco. This seems to bear out the statement made by the Junta that the death of Macco had given the Cubans a new incentive to fight for Cuba libre. Lieut. Hugh D. Wise, of the Ninth United States infantry, has been experimenting recently with kites as means of air navigation for observation purposes in war. He made his first ascent on Thursday, rising by means of his kites to a height of forty-two feet. lie expects to bo able so to perfect his system as to rise to great heights in safety. His kite is a four-sided affair, described as in tho form of a soap box with both ends removed. The prompt fliintj of charges against the oQlcials of tho German National, of Louisville, and the First National of Newport, the two Kentucky banks which failed this week, shows a proper disposition to hold bank officials to a strict responsibility for any fraudulent practices of which they may be guilty. As a rule the failures that have recently occurred havo resulted from bad, if not fraudulent, practices on the part of somebody. Some of ihe most daraagiug things to the stability of trade and the solidity of the banks nro being published daily by the gold bug and Republican papers. Having lent their aid to create tho conditions which exist, they apparently would make them tforse for the benefit of the pawn-brokers, the shylocks and their ilks. There is retribution in the future for these men and papers. News. Such glittering generalities are confusing. Would the "News" be kind enough to particularize. It now transpiies that some millers are in the habit of adulteiating their wheat Hour ith a product of corn, add in u; about ten par cent of the latter. The sa iii; in cost of production by this of a small amount of a cheaper product is sulllcient to make the difference between a profitable ami unprofitable business. The blended (lour is said to defy detection and it is certainly no less wholesome, but the consumers will no doubt object to tho "swindlo" on general pociplcs. William E. IIahius, just elected senator in place of Peffer and his whiskers, from Kansas, is in favor of the government ownership aud control of ralhoads and wants the government at once to take possession of the Pacific loads as an object lesson. He also wants an income tax and free coinage of silver. Tho only use he has for the tariff is to provide a revenue for the expenses of the He mixes the Populist and Democratic doctrines sufficiently to bo classed as a genuine Popocrat. The added strength which business is day by day gaming, just as a man guins by little and little after a locg and debililatiug case of sickness, will eventually restore our woaled pros perity. It is coming slowly but surely, just as the convalescent glows daily a little stronger, the rapidity of his recuperation depending in no small measure on the severity and duiatlon of his sickness, Wo have been very sick for four years. We must not bo discouraged if we do not regain our usual robust habit in a the Union when Senators Ingalls and Plumb looked after her Interests and yjMJWjl"'Wyt,yy'.,'q"" '"' now and will bo foi sotno years to como represented by two men who unknown will have as little voice or influence in national legislation as tho humblest of thoir constituents behind his plow. Great is her decline. Aud il all came about by too much talk as compared with the amount of good solid thought and oWivntion. A small boy airestcd in Chicago tho other day was about to bo released fiom custody on the ground of his tender age, when an ollleiom policeman volunteered the information that he was a very bad boy and should be punished. This weighed on the little fellow's mind so that a few hours afterwards he cal'ed an olllcer and confessed to him tint lie had been in the lmbit, in company with several other small boys, of paying this same policemnn $2 a week as the piice of immunity from arrest. Investigation piovcd the truih of the boy's assertiou and now the chances aie the loltcnncssof the Chicago police will have an airing. It may not bo found as rotten as was the New York foicc but no doubt a considerable stench cnu ho s tared up. Si'Kakino of Senator Wolcott and his mission in England, the London Daily News says: "The hlmctalllils in I'arliameni are not disposed to take any active measures, but they believe that time is on their side, and they are warmlv inleiested in Sir Samuel Montague's proposal that to secure the adoption of the dual standard, it will be necessary for tho United States to begin, aud then to offer a 10 per cent, tariff rebate to all nations following their example." No doubt they are perfectly willing "for the United States to begin." Nothing would please Europo better thau for the United Stnses alone to adopt the silver standard, for that is what bimetallism on any other basis than international agreement means and thereby be plunged again into a business panic. Whatever injures American business helps England, and nothing would please her better than for the United States to adopt free coinage of silvc. Theke does not seem to be much lcliance to be placed in the news from Fiankfort with reference to tho Ken-luck' Scnatorship, or tho extra session. One day we arc assured ou what purports to be the very best authority, that the Governor has de cided to call an extra session on a certain date. Next day we are told Governor Bradley doesn't know any thing about an extra session and will appoint a successor to Senator Then we are told the Governor fears his appointee would not be seated, etc. The Governor appears to keep his own counsel pretty successfully. No doubt tho Governor would be glad to escape calling the Colonels together to re-enact, tho disgraceful scenes of last winter, and if assured of the success of the scheme would not bo averse to its avoidanco by the exercise of the appointing power. But the existence of some doubt as to the legality will probably induce him to call the legislature together to perform its constitutional functions. The Democratic press is anxious to make and cultivate the impression that Mr. McKinley desires to dictate in the matter of the selection of a United States Senator from this state. There is not the slightest basis for such insinuations. Mr, Mclvinlev ba3 probably not given a thought to the matter aud has certainly not communicated any he may havo had to the leaders of tho party in this state. In the history of the country and all Its presidents it has been reserved for Mr. Cleveland to enjoy the distinction of a boss in all departments of the government, and even in local politics. Of course Mr. McKinley, in cominou wilh all Republicans, is anxious to see a Republican elected from this stato, und will bo clad to see tho best man for the place chosen, but beyond that ho will not go. The good Republicans of Kentucky will be left to make their own selection of a successor to Senator Blackburn in their own way, notwithstanding the anxiety of our Democratic contemporaries for news. A uehaant little country ex change grows oloquent on "half-cent tobacco, twenty cent corn and forty cent wheat" und after a warning to "steer clear of high tariffs," adds: "A hungry child, a cold, dellcato white mother, is feeling, throughout this broad country, what it is to want for bread and raimant." It is juat such unthinking, unobscrving leadership as this that brought upon Uhc people the miseries of (he past four years. Had these prompters of public thought a molecule of reason in their make-up, it would take but little observation to convince them of tho folly of their position. "Half-cent tobacco and twenty rent corn and forty ceut wheat" were unknown under a high fortnight, tariff. They came under and were ivnn nhl PonuINt ridden Kansas introduced by a low tariff. We have that held her head up In the Senate as never in this country had a low tar- one of the best represented states in iff but low prices for form products and distress followed. Wo have those of tho country then. She is ' ty cent corn and forty cent f'f"Tlj lM".Pj' 1'" g.Wwdfrflfc under n "high tariff." Wedded to a theory and blinded by prejudice theso fellows cullivato in tho minds of thMr readers an unreasoning prejudice which lead3 them to oppose the legislation and policy which has proven the salvation of this country aud to favor tho policy which at every trial has brought depression, pauic mid starvation. One would think the result of the late experiment would teach them something, but il would seem they arc even worse than the class that is said to learn at no other school than that of experience. The magnitude of the plague and famine calamity of India can scarcely be immagincd. The death rate is simply appaling, if we may believe a tithe of the representations that are raado with reference to it Bombay, the metropolis, is a city of 900,000. We nro told that at least one-half the entire population have nbaudoued their homes and that probably half tho lemaiuder nic btriekon with the loathsome disease, that nil business is suspended aud that many of the dead lie unburird in their homes or in the sheets. In tho count'y towns it is no better, if not actually worse Even in the country the desperate, s aiving and plague strickcu inhabitants drug themselves to tho roadsides, waiting iu the hope of u succor that comes not, until death lel'cvcs them. That such and incomparable misery is possible iu this Nineteenth century of the Christian era, and within the territorial limits of the British empire, scarcely secerns possible to us in America; but there is no doubt of its existence. Wo are also told that with the most favorable outcome possible it will be necessary to carry tho burdens of these poor people for a year before they will again bo able to take care of themselves. Charitably disposed peoplo certainly have a splendid op portunity to prove their faith by their woiks. An organized movement among the farmers in Illinois in conjunction with church missionary societies has been started, and it will probably be followed by similar movements in other states, to take liberal contributions of corn and ship by wav of New York for distribution fiom the Indian missions by the resident missionaries. Small individual contributions made from all parts of the immense corn area of this would in the aggregate amount to a vast sum. In times of great suffering and distress Christian America has never been found wanting, and will not be so found on this occasion. DRIFTWOOD GATHERED ON THE LEVEE. AltniVALS.

Prof. Wortliitiffton lins been htudt og ti curious phenomenon for 20 years. Thu splusli of a drop occurs In tlictuli.l!ti(r of un eye, yd it ia nn exquisitely regulated nnl one that very happily illustrates some of the. fundamental pi'oiN'rUod of the fluid. Tlio problem thnt Prof. Worthlnpton has Hticccctliil iu suiting ia to let n drop of dellulle fcizu full from a llxcd height in coinpa rathe darkness onto n surfneo nnd to illuminate it by a IIukIi of exceedingly short duration at any desired Mage, po as to exclude all tho stages proWous nnd subsequent to those thus selected. The many illustrations in his olume tietify to the accuracy nnd beau ty of work. The curious results of a splash of n drop of mercury from a height of three inches mon a smooth glass plate are particularly Interesting. Very toon after the first minute rays are idiot out iu nil directions on the surface with manelous regularity. From the cuds of tho rays droplets of liquid split off. The liquid subsides In the middle and soon afterward flaw s into the ring. The ring then divides In such a manner as to join up the rnys In pairs. Thereafter the uholo contracts till the liquid rises in the center, so as to form the the rebound of the drop from the plnte. Immediately the drops nt the ends of the arms break oil, while the central mass rises iu a column, which just falls to break Into drops. Ho photographed no fewer than 30 mcccHsire stages of the splash wltliln the twentieth of a second, to that tho average Intcrtal between them was about the part of a lemnrlablc arc tho splashes of water drops falling about 10 inchcslntn milk, but more beautiful arc the doino forms when the, height Is Z'i Inches. Knowledge. Tlio Successor of Da Slaorler. Tho London correspondent of the Weekly says that Du Mauricr's reputed successor In Punch is Phil .May, who is described ris having been hitherto the clown In that Punch company of which Du Alauner was the tenor. Mr. May may take Du Mnurler's place in u way, but tho true ituceessor of Punch's lost tenor will be more npt to be developed by the necessities of the situation thrtn to be created What was Du jduce among English Illustrators s a great gap which time may fill ntul may not. The loss teems to lie not no much in tho Btlffunlug of n cunning hand as iti the passing away of all the ideals nnd Images that peopled Du Mauricr's imagination. If there was anyone who could think Du Mnurler's thoughts and dream his dreams, there would be n better prospect of filling his place, albeit with pictures not like Ills in execution.
