Re-opened at the Old Stand— David Weis bein. Anew publication in New York is called Wealth , and its publishers advertise that it Is intended only for the rich. They expect to get the patronage of all who want to be fconsidered rich, however, and may do well. Moses Salomon, of the Anarchists' coun sel, is far more honest with them than Cap tain Black. He has given them to under stand that their chance for a reprieve by notion of the Supreme Court favorable to them is next to nothing. It seems to be about as hard to get at the truth of matters in Germany as in the most benighted portion of Airica. Only a few days ago the C'>rt-H**nu''u reported the Emperor to be in M.otast stages of senile de cay, and almost lielpiess. Now he is off on e hunting exjs-jCttton. Messrs. Moody and Sankey have concluded that tabernacle work is not so effective as that done in connection with regular churches, and will not hereafter devote much of their time to it. This conclusion is reached after they have gained fame, and perhaps fortune, by this method of exciting religious interest, and they may now regret much wasted labor. “No truer, braver, more honest man ever filled the Presidential chair of the United States’’ were the words employed by ex- Senator Thurman in his farewell sjoech to Ohio Democrats the other day, to describe President Cleveland. And yet some news pai>ers would have us believe that the man who used these words is disappointed and eoured by official neglect. William 11. Bailey, member of the Execu tive Board of the Knights of Labor, to oust whom, at the Minneapolis convention, a strong effort was made by Mr. Powderlv. will keep his place and work for the good of the order, taking no part with the seceders. This is the sensible course, if or ganized labor is to be made to do as much good and as little harm as possible. The son of Senator Voorhees, whose talk about Democrats! opposition in the West to the renomination of Mr. Cleveland has been given so much prominence in opposi tion journals, spent Friday night in a New York police station, and appeared in court next morning to answer the charge of drunk enness. He had been on a protracted spree. It was probably during this time that he Was interviewed. Nashville is soon to undergo again the turmoil and excitement of an election on the question of subscribing $500,000 to aid the Midland railroad. The projectors of that enterprise, to judge from the i>ks of Nashville newspapers during the former campaign, already have a large amount in vested in that subscription, and they will put forth every energy to prevent its* being lost. The municipal campaign in New York is getting very hot. Young Mr. Nicoll, who ■was so prominent in convicting the boodlers, and whom the Republicans and some Independent Democrats have nominated for District Attorney, says that he is op pressed with “an agony of doubt.” Tho Star tells him that he isn’t suffering from doubt, but from tho “Bighead" and the chances are that the Star is right. The corner-stone of the monument to Gen. Robert E. Lee will be laid in Rich mond to-day. Tho ceremonies will be in teresting if the weather is pleasant. It is expected that prominent persons from all parts of the country will be present. It is certain that all the Virginians who can jKissibly go to Richmond to-dav will lie there. Already the city iR crowded, but doubtless room will be found for all visitors. The New York papers which published a long list of judgments for debt against Col. John R. Fellows, the Democratic candi date for District Attorney of New York, did not take the trouble to investigate further than the court records. It is shown in reply that Col. Fellows has paid off most of the judgments from savings from his salary, and is making monthly payments on the others. He has, perhaps, been blam able for loose management of his affairs, but fairness required that if the matter were published at all the whole story should be told. (Senator Allison is a Republican, and Is somewhat prominently spoken of as the candidate of his party for the Presidency; but he is bold enough to announce some views on financial questions not very fat removed from those advocated by Demo crats. He thinks the whisky tax will re main as it is, and that the dominant party will harmonize on some tariff measure which will meet the “ public demand for cheaper goods and a little loss revenue.” Mr. Allison is evidently influenced by the fact that he lives In the agricultural .State of lowa, and is far from being a Republican *1 the Pennsylvania type. Aiming at a Solid North. John Sherman and Gov. Foraker are the lead.ng Republican speaker-, in the cam paign that, is now being conducted in Ohio. Neither of them ever tails to call attent ion to the solid South, and to assert that it is kept solid by intimidation and fraud. They do not pretend to prove their assertion. They have no facts to support it and, there fore, they depend wholly upon reiteration. Doubtless they muke some converts. A day or two ago that distinguished law ver and statesman, Judge Thurman, of Ohio, in a speech called attention to tho persistency with which Messrs. Sher.iim and Foraker continue to call at tention to the solid South. In tiie course of his remarks lie said: “While denouncing the South for being solidly Democratic, they are striving with all their might to make the North solidly R • publican, in order, by its means, it being the strongest section of tue Union, to gov ern this country forever and forever, or at least as long as they can do so by the use of such means.” Messrs. Sherman and Foraker condemn in onu section of the country that which they are striving to accomplish in another. They declare that those who made the South solidly Democratic and kept it so, are guilty of a great crime. They regard themselves as patriots, however, for trying to make the North solidly Republican. They carefully conceal their purpose and their inconsis tency’. They are not only inconsistent but are also demagogues. They pretend that they want some of the Southern States to he Republi can. It is safe to say that they want noth ing of the kind unless they can get enough of the Southern States to give them control of the government. They want the South to remain solidly Democratic in order that they may use it as an argument to make the North solidly Republican. A solid North is what they want and not a divided South. They know that the charges of intimida tion and fraud which they’ make against the South are not true, hut they answer their purpose and they will continue to make them. Thore is too much intelligence at the North, however, to permit them to lie be lieved to such an extent as to make the North solidly Republican, although Sher man, Foraker and other Republican lenders seem to think thore isn’t. Speeches like those of Judge Thurman are calculated to arouse the people to an understanding of the purpose of the Republican leaders in continually denouncing the Solid South. The Shipping League. As was predicted, the only result of the convention of the American Shipping and Industrial League in Boston was a prolonged and vociferous demand for bounties. Sen ator Frye was one of the principal speakers, and he was frank enough to put in plain words what he meant. After saying that, the carrying business does not pay, and that were Great Britain to make a present to American merchants of as many iron ships as they wanted they could not sail one of them profitably, he went on to state that the only way the American merchant ma rine can be revived is for Congress to put its hands into that terrible surplus and pay it out for the sailing ot American ships. Mr. Frye thinks that in this way a foreign trade could be built up. But the question is, where would the profits to the government, or the people it represents, come from' The beneficiaries of the bounty would, undoubtedly, soon have full pockets—if, hide* and, pockets can he filled—and there would be quite a scramble to share in the public largess until long division made the dole to each ship owner small or else bankrupted the Treasury. It is hard to believe that any disinterested man of intelligence can honestly advocate such a policy as that outlined. It is a de liberate proposition by a system of tariff taxation and bounties to make American made goods dear to American citizens and cheap to foreigners. It is an attempt to lessen competition among protected man ufacturers, and the consequent lowering of prices, by exporting the surplus produced at the public exiiense. The average citizen would not be benefited by a foreign trade bought on such terms; he would actually be injured. He would be paying part of the cost of the goods consumed by the foreigner, and thus lessening his own ability to com pete with him. Contrast the position of a resident, say, of Nebraska, with ttiat of a man living in Halifax, with relation to American manufactures under the condition of affairs which would be brought about should our existing tariff laws lie supplemented by the proposed bounties. The American would pay the cost of manu facture, the tariff duty, the maker’s profit, the railroad freight aud his part of the ship charges on the goods bought by the Nova Scotian. The latter would be made a pres ent of the transportation charges and the rebate on whatever foreign material may have entered into the goods. It is hard to figure out a profit to the country at large from a trade carried on under such conditions, though it is easy to se'howa comp i ratively few people would be benefited. The Seceding- Knights. It is not probable that the secession move ment inaugurated at Chicago last. Monday by a small faction of (he delegates to the Minneapolis convention will seriously injure the organization of the Knights of Ijibor The circular which the seceding delegates have issued may influence a few thousand knights to follow them, but their places doubtless will soon be taken by better men. In their circular the seceders make a good many charges against Mr. Powderly and other leading knights. There is pretty good reason for believing that the charges cannot be sustained. In some of them there may he a little truth, but there is not enough in any of them to entitle them to serious considera tion. Mr. Powderly’s friends say, and they doubtless speak the truth, that the seceders are Anarchists, aud that their present course is due to their failure to get the Minneapolis convention to pass a resolution sympathiz ing with the condemned Chicago bomb throwers. If they are that kind of men the Knights of ]>abor are much better off with out than with them. A genuine working man lias nothing in common with an An archist. The Knights of Labor couldn’t do a wiser thing than to expel from their order all avowed Anarchists. 'Workingmen have no reason to expect advantages from any agitation which Anarchists may inaugar ate, or from their doctrines. Peace, order and obedience to law are as neces sary to the happiness and welfare of the workingman as of the capitaiest It is asserted that ninety out of every 100 male children born in Irelaud at present, are named after Charles Stuart Parnell. HIE MORNING NEWS: THURSDAY, OCTOBER *27, 1887. The Case of the Anarchists. I Tl le interest in the ca-e of the condemned i Cb.cago Anarchists is very general through out the country There are a few who sym pathize with them, but the vast majority of people would be glad to have the sentence 1 which has been pronounce I upon them ex i edited. Tiie argument which will be heard in their case in the Supreme Court at Wash iugton to-day, will not be on the merits, t but on the question of jurisdiction. Tho court is asked to review the case on the ground that grave errors were com mitted by the court which tried the Anarchists, aud which errors the Su preme Court of Illinois declined to c greet for the reason that they were not of such a character as to have influenced the verdict. Before the case can be reviewed, however, the question whether the Federal Supreme Court has a right to do so must be settled. The counsel for the Anarchists will try to-duy to show that it has. The impression is that they will not. be successful. Thev have presented several points in support of their position, but they are not strong ones. The probabilities are that tho court will refuse to review the case. In that event nothing further can be done in the courts for the condemned men, If, however, the Supreme Court decides it has authority to review the case arguments on its merits will doubtless be heard at once, in order that a decision may be reached before Nov. 11, the day fixed for the execu tion. It seems that at Chicago there is no ex pectation that the Supreme Court will In terfere in behalf of the condemned men, and the preparations for their execution are going forward rapidly. Every precaution is being taken to prevent their escape or rescue. There are some who criticise the Supreme Court quite severely for having entertained a motion to inquire whether it has or not authority to review the case, but a very lit tle consideration will leave no doubt that the course it lias pursued is a wise one. Indeed it could not very well have refused to enter tain the motion without exposing itself to the charge of being prejudiced against the Anarchists. Their sympathizers would have raised the cry that it was impossible toi get justice, and a good many simple-minded people would have been led into believing that the court had failed to do its duty. If the decision is that there is no ground for reviewing the case, or if it is admitted that there is ground and the case is re viewed ami the State courts sustained, the Anarchists will not be able to assert, with any hope of being believed,that the Chicago bomb throwers were murdered by the courts. Neither will they be able to say that the condemned men were not ably de fended. From the first they have been de fended by some of the ablest lawyers in the country. Judge Kelley thinks a failure to reduce the revenue will speedily result iu a financial crisis much more disastrous and widespread than those of 1837 and 1857. As the Demo cratic party is in power, he believes the peo ple will hold it responsible for such a fail ure, should it occur, and he seems to think this makes the position of the Republicans peculiarly strong. He says they will not permit an alxdition of the tax on tobacco if it is coupled with re ductions of import duties, though the propo sition to do so, if made in a separate bill, would be accepted. His idea seems to be that though in a minority the Re publicans are in a position to impose their policy on the House by playing on its fears, and with the aid of the protection Democrats. He will probably find, however, when it comes to the pinch that many of his Western party colleagues will not follow him in such a des perate campaign for free whisky and dear clothing. They live too far from Pennsyl vania. Gov. Ames, of Massachusetts, is being sharply attacked on his war record. He had been a gallant militia Colonel for several years till the war broke out, when he promptly resigned. 1 Alter, when drafted, he sent a foreigner as a substitute, who de serted after a short term of service. The Democratic candidate, Lovering, was a very brave soldier, and that fact ought to give him a great advantage, but it will probably not do so. Massachusetts is not in the habit of rewarding soldiers with office. The chief engineer of the Nicaragua Canal Company says that that enterprise is to be begun at once, and that engineering parties will leave Greytown on Dec. 1 to make the preliminary surveys. A syndicate com posed of New York, Baltimore and Rich mond capitalists have undertaken the work, which they estimate will cost $05,000,000. It is expected that the canal will l>e ready for business in six years. It is to be hoped that there will be something besides promises. Mr. Deianoey Nicoll hesitates to allow his name to be used as a candidate by the New York Republicans and Independents, for fear his candidacy would enda ger the suc cess of his friend and former chief, Mr. Mar tine, who is a Democratic candidate for Judge. Mr. Nicoll is universally conceded to be a line young man, but he is showing himself a more loyal friend than Democrat. Loya 14'- to both friend and party would be best. Boston’s most prominent citizen, John L. Sullivan, sails for Europe to-day. He expresses the opinion that the Smith-Kilrain light will not come off, and his purpose is to whip the one who wants to fight, after his opponent has backed down. He seems to think Kilrain will do the backing, and patriotic John goes to uphold the honor of his country. How tho great heart of Bos ton must throb with anxiety! Jay Gould denies that he took any undue advantage of Mr. Garrett in the telegraph deal, and replies to his attacks by saying Garrett has been subject to fits of aberration of mind for several years. The latter statement may, unfortunately, be true, as Mr. Garrett’s conduct of late has been very eccentric, but if Gould didn’t take advan tage of him it will generally be believed that it was because, in spite of his mental condition, no opportunity occurred to do so. Chili is evidently determined to keep Peru in the abject state in which she was left by the last war. Her threat to proceed to ex tremities in case it was approved by Con gress has, it is alleged, caused the famous Grace scheme to pay Peru's foreign debt and develop her internal resources to be abandoned. Mayor O'Brien, of Boston, when proposed as a member of the Massachusetts Mechanic Charitable Association, was blackballed be cause he is a “Jesuit." It is to be hoped the association is more liberal with its cash than it is in its opinions, else there is little excuse for us existence. CURRENT COMMENT. The Man as Well as tho Lawyer.

A Wise Labor Leader. From the Philadelphia Inquirer. Probably the man who could work the most mischief iu this country in the shortest time, if he wer e so inclined, is neither Philip H. Sheri dan, the head of the army, nor Jay Gould, the terror of the stock marker, but a man far in ferior in wealth and position to either of them P. M. Arthur, Grand Chief Engineer of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers. His army of 25,000 men is ceaselessly engaged in keeping the life-tide of commerce flowing through all the arteries of this broad land. If he should issue an order commanding his men to stop work the business of the United States would be paralyzed in an hour. It is fortunate, then, that a man so powerful holds such sensi ble and business like views as were expressed by Mr. Arthur in his speech opening the annual convention of the order, iu Chicago. In a very few words, but those full of meaning, he drew a sharp picture of the contrast between “the honest man, satisfied with a just remuneration which he has truly earned, until by his own effort he can rise to a higher position in life,'”' and “the loud mouthed ‘bomb-thrower,’ who, scarcely able to speak the English language, seeks to win bis own comfortable living from those who have worked for it.” Every Knight of Labor who has brains enough to see the ap plication of this picture should study it and ap ply it to his own case. Mr. Irland’s $5 Gold Piece. From the Detroit Free Press. There is a neat little joke on Fred Irland. He recently lelurned from a shooting expedition and when, cn Friday last, he dropped into Swan's fo* a lunch, became infatuated with the idea that he should ascertain his weight and find out how much he had gained during his ab sence. There is in the establishment one of those covetous infernal machines in the way of scales which will only weigh the person, who drops a nickle in a slot, and this Mr. Irland mounted, at the same time depositing his coin, noted his weight, descended well satisfied and ate his stew with the air of a man who was de* mlined to add an additional half pound to his weight on the spot. *v nen, however, lie came to pay for his sup per his jaw fell, for from among the change m nls pocket he missed a nice, bright, round, yel low $5 gold piece. It dawned upon him that the insatiable maw of the scales had charged him at the rate of $2 JH) per pound for his gam, and he was paralyzed Only for a moment, however, then he caught his second wind, went into the next room and said to Mr. Swan: “Tom, I've dropped a s.‘> gold piece into your scales, mistaking it for s<\ I wish you’d open the measly thing and get it out.” a ‘Open those scales : " said Tom. “I have no more right to do that than I have to break in the vault or Preston's Bank. Tony Wolfschlager is the only man in Detroit that has any business to monkey with that machine. Hold on, though, 1 will go over with you to Tony's and he will make it all right." Mr. Irland t hought it only right that he should “do something" under the circumstances, and, after it was done, he and Mr. Swan set out for Wolfschlager’s. accompanied by three or four volunteer advisers. Arrived there, it was necessary to explain again, and this involved * doing something" else, .not only for the visiting party, but for the re mainder of the people in the house. Ninety-five cents. When the case was fully before him Tony said: “Why, Mr. Irland, I can’t do anything for you. All I have the right to do is to take the bags out of the cases, and turn them over to what's-liis name down on .Jefferson avenue, without open ing them. I’ll tell you what I’ll do, though. I'll go down with you and see him.” So Tony put on his coat to go down and, of course. Fred did “a little something." One dollar. Then they started out, most of the leisurely people about the place joining them, and went down to the Jefferson avenue place, where the condition of affairs was again explained. One dollar ami seventy cents. When it was fully understood the man said: “Certainly. I'll go up and get your money. Come on, boys, we ll go with 'em." So they started two by two up Jefferson ave nue. “Where's de band?" shouted n gamin. “Band! Derain't no band," said another. Them's the Knights of Sr. John, cornin’ back from a funeral at Ypsilanti." The procession marched with admirable align ment to Swan's, lilod in, and Two dollars and sixty cents. Then Fred got his $6. Different Kinds of Law. From the Salt Lake Tribune. “Law is a buss invention for rascals of all (trades. Give me a country where there is no law and I can take care of myself every time. Now, for instance, when I lived in Ohio I cot a dose of law that I will never forget. I was in partnership with a man named Butler and one morning we found our cashier missing with $3,000. He had dragged the safe and put out. Well. 1 started after him and caught him in Chicago, where he was splurging around on the money. 1 got him arrested and there was an examination. Well, all the facts were brought out, ami the defense moved that the ease be dismissed, as the prosecution did not make out a case in the name of the (inn, and if there was a firm the copartnership had not been shown by any evidence before the court. To my astonishment the court said the plea was O. K., and dismissed the case. Before I could real- ize what was up the thief had walked oil . "Well. 1 followed him to St. Louis, and there I tackled him again. 1 sent for my partner, and we made a complete case, going for him in the name of the Commonwealth and Smith, Butler A Cos. Well, the lawyer of the defense claimed that the money, being taken from a private drawer in the sufe, was my money exclusively, and that my partner had nothing to do with it; that the case should be prosecuted by me indi vidually, and not by the firm. The old bloke who sat on the bench wiped his spectacles, grunted around awhile and dismissed the case. Away goes the man again. Then I got another hiteli on him and tried to convict him of theft, but the court held that he should lie charged with embezzlement. Some years after 1 tackled him again, and they let him go. Statute of limitation, you see. Well, 1 concluded to give it up, ami 1 did. "But about four years afterward I was down in Colorado, and a man pointed to another and said. That fellow has just made $lOO,OOO in a mining swindle.’ 1 looked, and it was my old cashier. 1 followed him to the hotel and nailed him in his room witli the money. ‘Now.’ I says, Billy, do you recognize your old boss?’ and, of course, he did. Says 1, ‘Bill, 1 want that $3,000 you stole from me, with the interest and all legal and traveling expenses.’ ‘Ah, you do?' says he. ‘Didn’t the courts decide that * “ ‘Curse the courts,’ says I, putting a six shooter a foot long under his nose. ‘Tins is the sort of legal document that I’m travelm’ on now. This is the complaint, warrant, indict ment. judge, jury, verdict and sentence all com bined. aucl the firm of Colt & Cos. are my uttor neys In this case. When they speak they talk straight, to the point or your 'mug, you bloody larceny thief. This jury of six, of which lam foreman, is liable to be discharged at any mo ment. No technicality or statute of limitation here, aud a stay of proceedings Won't last over four seconds. I wnnt $10,(100 to square my bill, or I'll blow your blasted brains out.’ "Well, he passed over the money right away, and said he hoped tliere and lie no hard feelings. Now, there’s some Colorado law for you, and it’s the kind tor me. Kh, boys?” ITEMS OF INTEREST. Miss Lizzie Bell Sinclair, of Everittstown, Hunterdon county, N. J., completed on her IsiMi birthday a bed-quilt containing 11,210 pieces. Somebody wrote to an Allegan doctor asking if he could remove a cataract, and upon receiv ing an affirmative reply suggested that he tackle the one at Niagara. A one-horse burglar blew open the safe in the Niles Milling Company's office the other night and secured 35c., making him‘about 10c. an hour for his work. A Muskegon policeman gave a girl fits the other day because she was paralyzing her piano and killing the neighbors. They w ere real fits, too, and a doctor has been attending her ever since. Letter-carrier Marx, of Port Huron, has quit tin* business after being in it just ft month and walking 1,000 Indies.

Telegraph rates in the United Kingdom are uniform, it is stated, and reversing the order that obtains on this side, the rate is increased for night messages. The press rate from 6a. m. till 0 p. m., one-quarter of a cent a word, is increased to one-third of a cent a word after 0 p. m. Many arrests have made in Portland, Ore., of persons charged with selling oleomar garine, but. as California chemists have fur nished the defendants with certificates that the alleged bogus butter was the pure, legitimate article, nothing has thus far come of the prose cutions. In Webster county, Virginia, are a number of tall men, as witness the following record: Thomas Gregory, 6 feet 8 inches; Adam Ham rick, 6 feet 7 inches; John T. Woods, Kelly B. Hamrick, Adam J.

A good many people have been married on the quiet in Chicago recently, the marriage license having been temporarily suppressed in the County Clerk’s office. Still, marriage is not generally considered a dishonorable act, and there is certainly no law against it. In singular contrast to these secret weddings are the pnblic hearings of divorce cases in the courts. Mrs. Emelia Mikkelkon, residing at 2017 Seventh street, Minneapolis, died suddenly the other night. The circumstances connected with her death are peculiar. A calf which was play ing in the vara jumped upon her and so fright ened her that she died a few minutes later. A post mortem showed that the lady had been suffering from heart trouble, which was aggra vated by the shock, causing death. The stage coach that was carrying $5,000 from Mazatlan to Rosario to pay the employes and miners of the Tajo Mining Company recently, was halted by sixteen men at, a hill known as Devisadora The assailants fired a volley from their rifles, killing a woman and child, the only passengers in the coach, and gravely wounding the conductor. After robbing the coach of the silver it was permitted to proceed. A number of enterprising Detroit gentlemen have organized a workingman's club for the purpose of furnishing the young men an even ing resoit. Thus far a reading-room has been equipped with all the leading newspapers, maga zines aud other literature. A stage has been built for amateur theatricals and concerts. A city cannot have too many such places to neutralize the fascinations of the saloon. While digging a well on the premises of Al fred .Todd, near Bowen, 111., a few' days ago, John Ric* , who had charge of the work, was badly burned by an explosion of gas, a flame shooting into the air for forty or fifty feet. The blaze did not continue after the explosion, blit the water in the well is a mixture of mud and sand that boils and bubbles with the escaping gas with a roaring noise that can be heard for 100 yards. Mr. Todd has written to a geologist about it. The new Congressional Library building, will be the largest building in Washington, except the Capitol.

Imagine what amount of storage would he re quired to shelter the increase of a century from these sources alone! A phenomenon in the shape of a plague of ants is reported from Nancy, France. The in sects were immense in size, some having wings, but the majority wingless. They fell in such large numbers that the inhabitants thought that they were having a repetition of one of the plagues of Egypt. The thick black flakes kept pouring from the air from 5 until 8 o'clock in the evening, and every district in the city was covered with what has been described, for want of a better expres ion, as “living black hail." Important news from several English papers: “In the United States the telephone is already being superseded. A writing telegraph is al ready working on a commercial scale and with marked success. The writer uses a stylus or pen. with which he writes in ordinary fashion, but only on the empty air. Before his face is a second pen, which reproduces his words on the tape in front of it. At the other end the re ceiving pen reproduces the message in fac simile." In Servia, Bulgaria, and Roumania boots made of bullock’s hide or leather aud which are sim ply a flat piece of leather drawn over the foot all round and fastened by leather thongs or birch bark crossed over the leg, which is encased in either stockings or a piece of red cloth, are worn by the peasantry. The Slavonic peasantry in Austria also wear boots of the same descrip tion, and so do the Turkish soldiers, but they make their own. The Russian peasants make shoes of birch bark, and fasten them in the same way over stockings, except in winter when high leather boots are worn. Margaret L. Cain, claiming to be an “au thoress, dramatic reader, lecturer, and elocu tionist," has begun suit in Chicago to recover damages from persons who, she alleges, have “destroyed the labor of her lifetime," in which loss she includes “one pair of silk stockings of the value Of $2 50; one coffee mill, 25c.; six flat irons, 75c.; six corsets, sl6; one flannel skirt, $3; one box of pearline. 15c ; fifty manuscripts of original poems, $1,000; twelve manuscripts of original songs. $300; one temperance lecture, SSO; one work on elocution, $3,000, and one drama, $500." Wear and tear to her temper in creases her total bill to SIO,OOO. “To give the cue" is a common phrase. Ac cording to most dictionaries, “cue" (in its theatrical sense) is derived from the Latin “cauda,” through the French “queue." and the same authorities say that it means tin* last words of a speech which the actor, who has to reply, catches and regards as a notice to begin. This t heory is, perhaps, supported by the fact that, in French theatrical phrases, what we call the “cue" is styled the “replique.” But Mr. Wedgevvood maintains that the above etymology is quite erroneous. He says that “cue" is de rived from “Q," the first letter of the Latin •quando," which used to Ik* marked on the Roman players' parts to show when they were to enter and speak. When- Prof. MendelaiefT was descending in his military balloon near Moscow after observing the recent eclipse, several peasants ran out of the village of OderkofT with guns to shoot “the evil beast that had darkened the face of the sun." There was a general feat among the Rus sian pees in try that the world was coming to an end. This idea was strengthened bv the curious coincidence that on Sunday preceding the eclipse the Gospel appointed to be read in the churches happened to lie Matthew xxiv., in which occurred the prediction that the sun shall be darkened and the stars shall fall from tile heavens. Ten days after the eclipses in the province of Perm there was a remarkable fall of aerolites. One piece of the meteoric stone weighed about a quarter of a ton, and caused an earth shock in its fall like an earthquake. Among the recent railway inventions which i hove attracted special attention is what is termed the anchor brake, to lie used in cases of emergency. The plan involved in this case is that of having an anchor to drop from the re. r end of a train anil Engage with the ties. Pro vision for preventing the bending of the ties under the strain brought upon them, might it is suggested, tie devised as simply as for the axles; and, by having a good, long spring to ease the shock when the anchor came to a lienr ing. in addition to the relief which would come from the draw springs of the entire train, with out any expense at all, a train might easily he brought to a btop within 15 or gO feet from an ordinary passenger speed, if something did not give way. A more practicable invention, per iiaps. is that of a ear lire extinguisher, in case ol derailment or collision. It consists of a tank of water above the stove, with a large pine ex tending from it to the mside of toe stove just above the fire; a trap in Ihe bottom of the lank is connected by levers with a series of arms at tlie bottom of i he car, one of these arms ex .tending under each corner of each platform, while another extends down toward the track in case therefore, of collision, one of the arms under the platform must be struck first, thus moving tile lever, opening the trap, and instant ly deluging the fire with water—or. iu case of derailment, one of the arms down to ward the truck is struck and operates the lever.
