Two questions which are interesting the people of New York just now are: “Who will be elected President t" and “Is young Josef Hoffman coming back?’’ Mr. Levi P. Morton should cut short his letter of acceptance. After stating that the “harT' is ready to meet the demand upon it, he should sign his name. His signature is what is wanted. Congressman Torn Reed’s burly figure will baseen ill the House yet another term. Reed is a hard one to beat, but if the demo crats will keep ;gging away, they may shelve him after a while. He has much more fat than majority. Gen. Harrison, in bis letter of acceptance, says the law against importing contract laborers must be enforced. This must be a slap at his running mate, Mr. Morton, who has been charged lately with violating that la-.v. Will Mr. Morton hit back? The Persian man with the long name, •who was appointed by the Shah to repre sent Persia at been heard from, and his name is still intact. He is on his way to this country, and will be the first Persian minister ever sent here. The Congressional Record is not a record of all that takes place in congress. The little set-to between Senators Morgan and Mi.chell does not appear in its pages, but it ought to. The generations of the future ought to have a chance to study senatorial manners of the present. In a telegram to Gen. Harrison, Mr. Blaine states that the republican majority in Maine is the largest since 186 ti. This is not true. In 18G8 tho republican majority was 28,033, and in 1872 it was 32,335. Mr. Blaine is much given to misstatements since he returned from Europe. We are to have no time ball in this city, it seems, after Oct. 1. There is no appro priation out of which to pay the janitor of the custom house for attending to it. Are not other cities, of the size of this, furnished with a time ball at government expense? If so, why should there bo discrimination against Savannah I Mr. Blaine telegraphed to his friend, Whitelaw Reid, of the Now York Tribune, that the question of protection was the only one discussed in the Maine canvass—meaning by himself. Mr. Biaine gave a considerable portion of a very carefully prepared speech to the discussion of trusts, which lie had previously referred to. Thus he admits that trust* to the high protective system which fco advocates. Charlotte Smith, the woman who makes the senators in Washington wonder whether life is worth living, wants to sue the Presi dent for libel. She thinks he is guilty of that offense because lie said in a veto mes sage to congress, that Mary Ann Dougherty, a woman to whom congress had granted a pension, had been arrested seven times. If Charlotte is wise she will let Mary Ann look after the libel suit herself. But Charlotte is noted for talking, rather than wisdom. Bishops Newman and Joyce, of the North ern Methodist church, have thought, it nec essary to state that they will not vote for the prohibition ticket, but for Harrison and Morton, free whisky plank and all; whereat the republican campaign manugers are greatly rejoiced. The republicans, it soems, m-ust rejoice whenever a dyed-in-the-wool republican refuses to leave the party; the democrats rejoice because of n olid democ racy, and of accessions to the ranks from tho republican column. It was said, some days ago, that the re sult of the Maine election would have some thing to do with the time congress adjourns. Well, Mr. Blaine has been indorsed in Maine, and Mr. Blaine wants oongress to adjourn without granting Mr. Cleveland the power asked for iu his fisheries massage, ami without attempting to interfere with the war taxes. Will the republican senators liston to the voice of Maine? Or are they afraid that if thev do, they will lose one or two western states! E. W. Hryant, of New York, wants to know why the Christian science doctors don't exert themselves in behalf of the yel low fever sufferers in Jacksonville. That is wbat a good many people would like to know. Mr. Bryant says: "The Christian sclent ste claim to heal without attendance or the presence of the patient. Jacksonville is panic-stricken, and t'.e fever is in full blast. If our Christian scientists believe in Christian science, they si.odd help the suf ferers, and if they are not willing to go to the scene and ‘face the music,’ they might treat the Jacksonville sufferers as absent patients. If their soienco is Christian, and Can do what it claims, it lielies its nama in refraining from rendering aid in this great eed." Canada's Anxiety. The certainty that the retaliation meas ure will be passed by congress is causing the Canadian cabinet a great deal of anxiety. Before it passed the House, they hoped that it would only be discussed and that a vote upon it would not be readied. They looked upon it as a part of the tactics of the presidential campaign, intended to influence the Irish vote. They regard it dif ferently now. The almost unanimous vote bv which it passed the House convinces them that it will pass the Senate, and they have every reason to believe that the Presi dent will enforce it just ns soon as he is authorized to do so. The Canadian cabinet discussed the situa tion on Saturday, without, however, reach ing any determination with respect to the proper policy to be pursued. Some members of the cabinet advised placing Canada in a position at once to meet all contingencies, while others thought it would be better to wait and see what the Senate would do with the retaliatiou bi!L They argued that even if the Senate passed the bill, and the Presi dent exercised the authority given him, the injury that would be done to Canadian in terests before the election would not be very great, and they thought there would be no difficulty in reaching a solution of tne fisheries difficulty after the election. If the Canadian government hopes to see the fisheries question settled without mak ing such concessions as it is generally ad mitted this country is entitled to, it will be disappointed. The Senate cannot avoid passing the retaliation bill, and, when it does, this government will be committed to a policy from which it cannot honorably retreat. Either Canada will have to grant to American fisnermen the rights to which they are entitled, or else the President will retaliate. The whole fisheries trouble could very easily be settled. American fishermen would be satisfied with the privilege of shipping their fish in bond from Canadian port* to the American market. They are denied this privilege now, and hence, when they have a cargo they have to make a long journey to an American port, thus losing valuable time. If they could send their fish to market from a near-by Canadian port, they could easily double their earn ings, because they could give double the time to fishing. It is estimated that $50,000,000 of Cana dian goods are shipped in bond across the territory of the United Stati-s every year. If American fishermen are not permitted to ship their fish in bond across Canadian ter ritory, Canadian goods in bond will not be permitted to be sent across American terri- tory. This sort of retaliation will do Cana dian interests immense damage, and will be sure to bring about ill-feeling between Canada and this country. Our vessels passing through Canadian canals are now required to pay tolls, while Canadian vessels pass free through Ameri can canals oatlie frontier. If retaliation is enforced, Canadian vessels passing through American canals will be taxed. This will cause additional irritation. This country is in a position to retaliate in order to secure justice. It has nothing to fear from Canada, even with England at her back. It would not require a very great draft upon its resources to cope with England and Canada combined. A war be tween this country and England would re sult in England’s losing Canada ana having her commerce swept from the seas. A Generous Giver. The contributions for the Jacksonville sufferers have thus far been very liberal. There is no doubt that all the aid needed will be furnished. From all parts of the country money is going to Jacksonville, and it is going in amounts to make it certain that it will be sufficient to provide food for the destitute, and physicians and nurses for the sick. The largest amount yet contributed by one person is $12,000. The name of the per son who contributed it is unknown. He does not seek notoriety. He simply desires to do what good his wealth enables him to do. Mayor Hewitt, of New York, through whom the contribution was made, was rather surprised at the amount of it, and asked for tho narno of the donor. He was told however, that it was desired that the donors name should not be made known. He is described as being of medium hight, with a light complexion, a closely-cropped, rather dark beard, and as beiug plainly dressed in a business suit. The money was in five gold certificates, three of which were for SIO,OOO and two for SI,OOO each. All the stranger would say in connection with the gift was that it came from an Ameri can. He is certainly e very generous American, and he will be gratefully remem bered in Jacksonville as tho unknown. The United States consul at San Domingo City, according to the New York Times, declares that it was with “the most respect ful intentions and not iu the loast spirit of levity or irreverence, that he proposed to disinter the corpse of Columbus, the discov erer of America, and exhibit the remains throughout the United States at so much a head." The consul must certainly have intended a joke, or else those who pretend to know something about the remains of Columbus are wholly at fault. The remains were removed from San Domingo to the cathedral in Havana in 1706, where they remained until July 2, 1887, when they were taken to Genoa. The substitution of an “a” for an “o” in sending a cablegram from New York to Paris lias led to a suit for several thousand dollars damages. Edward Spaulding, of New York, lias a davio i on which letters 1 intent were signed in France, and in order to protect the patent ho must pay at the patent office in Paris on Feb. 8 of each year S3O. Ho contracted with Brown Bros., of New York, to see to its payment every year, but the change of the letter mentioned above rendered Brown Bros.’ cablegram unintelligible, and in the delay the patent was allowed to lapse. Sitting Bull is greatly wrought up over the rumor that ho has sigued the treaty for the opening of the Sioux reservation, and denounces as a villain the man who started it. Tlie scalp of that man would bo in dan ger of lieiug removed if it bhould otwtruet the view of the angry Indian. The latest snake story comes from In diana, and is that a “blue racer,” fifteen feet long and as large as a man’s think, has been seen by several citizens. Doubtless the citizens were republicans, whoso habits cause them to ad> oeate free whisky. Gov. Hill will had the stale democratic campaign in New York. He led the New York Democracy to victory once, and be will do it again. Science .'o es a shining light in the death of Prqf. ii. A. Proctor. THE MORNING NEWS: THURSDAY. SEPTEMBER 13, 1888. The Election in Maine. The republicans are claiming a great vic tory in Mail e. There is nothing remarkable in that. They are trying lo make Maine help them in the national campaign. But, as a matter of fact, have lliey any particular reason for their expression of joy? Their plurality this year is, according to their own account, just about wbat it was in September, 1884. Mr. Blaine was the republican candidate for President then, and the republican plurality in the Septem ber election was 19,745. This year the re publicans place their majority at 20,000. The eurlier reports of au election, as a rule, place the majorities too high, and the prob abilities are that when the returns are all in and corrected, the repufHman plurality in Maine will be no higher thSl*. it was in .September four years ago. Mr. Blaine was just as active in the campaign which preceded Monday's election as he was in that whicli preceded the September election of 1884. Hence, it cannot be said that the republicans have gained anything in the last four years. The elections which have taken thus far this year will have preciabie effect upon the November contest. They have been in abso lutely sure states, and, besides, the hardest work of the campaign remains to be done. In the two months before the election there will doubtless be great changes in public sentiment, particularly in the doubtful states where the changes are important. From present indications, the changes will be in favor of the democrats. Notwith standing the fact that in 1884 Maine gave a republican majority of neariy 20.000 in September, Mr. Blaine was defeated in November. ▲ Splendid Drainage Scheme. The county commissioners yesterday took a step in the right direction. They author ized that one of their committees which has charge of roads and bridges, to employ a competent engineer and to organize a ur veying corps for work in the county. The intention of the commissioners is to make a complete topographical and hydrograph ical map of the entire county. It is ex pected that this work will be accomplished within six months. It will be accomplished in less time than that, if possible. The object which the commissioners have in view is two-fold. They want to get the necessary data upon which to lease a sys tem of drainage for the whole county, and they want to find out to whom the lands of the county belong, and wbat the extent of each holding is. When a thorough knowledge of the county is obtained, it will not bo difficult to decide upon a system of drainage that will result in groat benefit to this city, and to the county outside of the city. When the county is thoroughly drained, a very large part of it will be placed under cultivation. There will be truck aud dairy farms and orchards where there are now swamps. Such a change cannot be otherwise than beneficial to the health of the county. The drainage that has been done has opened the way for many improvements, and has had a marked influence on the health of the city. What has been done, however, is very little in comparison with what it is now proposed to do. A splendid future appears to be in store for Chatham county as well as for Savannah. Mr. George Francis Train, of New York, says lie wants to go to Jacksonville, and he believes if he were there he could soon ar rest the course of the yellow fever. “I don’t feel at liberty to force myself in where I am not wanted,” he says, “but if the peo ple were to extend an invitation to me, I would go down there to-morrow. I know I couid stop the progress of the pest. The people there are demoralized, and need somebody to restore confidence to them and stop their panic. 1 can do it, and will go into every fever hole in Jacksonville. They call me a crank;if they want to kill me off, now is their time. I iusist on one thing. They mustn’t thank me. When the fever is gone let them go to church and thank God.” Mr. Train might make a good nurse. Nurses are needed in Jacksonville. The romances growing out of the blizzard of last March in New York have not all come to light, but they aro gradually show ing up. One of the latest is made public by the marriage, the other day, of Mr. George Cozine to Miss Mary McEwen. On the night following the great storm, Mr. Cozine was nicking his way along East New York avenue, when he heard the cries of a woman, and, upon searching, found Miss McEwen almost buried in the snow. He rescued her, and carried her in his arms to her home. Since that time he has been a welcome visitor there, aud finally he has married the girl be rescued. Here is abundant material for a novel. If E. P. Roe had been permitted to live he could have written a thrilling book based on in cidents connected with the blizzard. Tho Butlor Herald contains an advertise ment of the ‘‘Butler Female and Male Institute.” Judging from the picture of it in tho advertisement which is printed, it is an institution of no mean pretensions. It has a faculty of seven, among them teachers of music, art, telegraphy, elocution, penman ship and book-keeping, all of which branches are taught for one dollar per month, and the price of board is from $5 to sloa month. With education and board at such prices there is no reason why any indus trious boy or girl in Georgia should not have at least a year or two at a good school. The Morning News gives the “B. F. and M. Institute” this free notice, and wishes it every success. The public schools of Now York were re opened Tuesday, the attendance approxi mating 150,000, and the number of teachers being 3,400, of whom 22 1 arc principals. The number of buildings in which the chil dren are accommodated is 147, and for the present year the cost of maintaining the schools, including expense of new buildings, will be over $5,000,000. A number of now school buildings in populous districts are being erected. Chairman Mills will have to contend against a prohibitionist in his canvass for re-election. Mr. E. A. Jones, of Waco, has announced himself ns an independent can didate, and he it said to have a strong pro hibition following. It is not the fashion in the south, however, to mix politics and prohibition, and doubtless Mr. Mills will not lose many democratic votes by reason of Mr. Jonos’ candidacy. R"v. I. C. Ihff, who is in chargo of a mis sion in Utah, reports to his conference that polygamy is on the decline there. Tho gov ernment officials are enforcing the law against it, and he thinks tint in a few years it will he driven out. When that comes to pass, probably Mormon missionaries will cease their proselyting work. CURRENT COMMENT. Every Word True. From the Philadelphia Record <Pent.) The oh!

Very Bcarca. From the St. Paul Olnbe (Dem.) Even the republican papers have very little to say nowadays about "the lifelong demo crats' who are going to vote for the trust and tariff boodler*. If there were ever any such democrats, they have evidently taken to the woods. Get It Later Cn. From the New York Graphic (Ind.) In the absence of everything else of a con soling nature the republican press Is making the most of Judge Thurman s attack of cholera morbus, but the little speech that the Old Roman did make at Newark shows a health and vigor of intellect that very few younger men have. It is a pity that the rest of the speech was not made, but we shall get it later on. Mostly Farmers, You See. From the Xew York Herald (Ind.) The Minnesota republicans refuse to accept the high taiiff platform of their party. They are mostly farmers, you see. and they don’t propose to be taxed for the protection of a few monopolists, wnile they are themselves left without any protection at all. This tax, tax, tax on everything they use and wear Is no more agreeable than i rying to drive a nail and hitting your thumb at every blow. It is about as profit able, too. BRIGHT BITS.

The Deceptions Fracticed by Sharps, but Easily Discovered. From the Detroit Free Press. A dozen different artifices are resorted to by horsemen and horse sharpers to conceal the age of an animal after he has passed his tenth year. No buyer need be deceived, however, who will follow the rules herewith laid down. You want to buy a horse—an animal not over 9 years of age. The report gets out some way and you reoeive a postal card inviting you to call at a certain place- The would-be seller take 6 vou for a greenhorn and is all ready for you. Y’crur line of proceeding is as straight as a board. Ask to have the horse brought out into the alley, where you have the full light of day. Begin by looking at his feet, and after you have inspected them, shake your head in a dubious way, as if you wouldn't give 310 for the beast. Next hold the horse’s head close to your face and jab your index finger at his eyes. If you jab bard you'll hit the eyeball. Then pull the right ear down and blow into it. You may blow him off his feet, but it is not probable. Then punch him in the ribs, press on nis spine, look very dubious and inquire: “How old do you call him?" “Eight last spring,” the man will reply. Then you will for the first time open the horse’s mouth, take a lightning survey and turn away with the remark: •‘He’ll never see 25 again.” “What?" “It was very foolish in you to put up such a job on me." "Job: Why, sir, you are sadly mistaken." “Yes, I know: but I didn’t want him just the same. He’s got all the marks of a horse who has passed his twenty-fifth year. I want an old nag for grinding tanbark, but I can't take one over 16 years old." “Say, mister. I see you k,:Ow your gait, and it's no use to try to work you. He's fifteen or a month, and you can have him for 3125. Y r ou can make any excuse you wish to get away, but you have accomplished the great point iD a horse transaction. If you are selling an old horse the case will be different. When the would-be buyer makes his call keep him waiting for at least five minutes. Then, when he has stated his errand, you must dubiously observe: "I did say I would sell him, as I want to get a big cart horse, but the wife and children take on so that it goes against the grain. We raised him, you know, and he’s like one of the family," | *"lf you raised him, you must know his exact ago.” “Oh, certainly. Got his birthday down in an old diary. Billy is 9 years and 1 month old.” The old man looks at Billy's teeth, andrepliai: "Ten years old! Why, the beast Is above 20, or I'm a liar." Now you want to lead the horse back Into the stall, and lnnooently remark to the visitor: "Y'ou will excuse me, sir, but I’m rery busy this morning” “But about the horse ?'|| ■‘Oh, he wouldn't please you, sir. You'd always feel that you were cheated." “Isn't he 80?” “Didn’t I say I had his 'birthday in writing? Didn’t I feed him with my own hands?” “He has the teeth of an old horse." •‘Very well, sir. No harm done, of course?" “I—l rather like his looks." “So does everybody. He’s a horse to be proud of." “Just what I want, if I was only sure about his age.” "Excuse me, sir, but I must go in and soothe the children. They are crying for fear I’ll sell Billie.” “Well I’ll take him at 8150. If you say he’s only teD, that settles it,’for I know you to be a man who wouldn't lie nor deceive in a trade of any sort.

The quantity of things which a ivomau with a gift for packing can bring back in one trunk from a summer sojours in the country is a matter for the marvel of the country people, the terror of the baggage handlers and hnckmen, and the delighted admiration of the rennfted home circle. There is one woman of the Listener's acquaintance whose packing talents are some thing phenomenal. Up at East Ephesus, where she stands her summers, they have become fully acquainted with her gifts in this respect, ana always s-nd around two extra hands with the coach when she gets ready to take her de parture. This year she succeeded in getting into one rather small trunk not only all her clothing, except what she wore, and that of two children, besides toys, books, magazines and the customary infantile and maternal knick nacks, but a long list of such articles as these: A box of ginger cookies, such as are made only in Vermont ; ten pounds of super refined maple-sugar from Uncle Zedekiah .lohnsou’s celebrated orchard: ten quarts of fresh black berries in cardboard boxes; a package of Aunt Cynthia’s justly famous jelly rolls; a bag of potatoes, and a quantity of oriceless geological specimens gathered by the youngest male mem ber of the fain ly. “Christopher Jewsharp!" exclaimed the stage driver, as he and tits two assistants struggled to get the trunk up to ils perch, "if ye c’n load a little un like that, what Mye do with a Serrytogy I" Besides ;tbe trunk, the returning sojourner brought, of course, a considerable amount of hand baggage, which included, besides the children, a canary bird, two tailless cals, and a bunch of cat tails—the latter brought by way of compensation for the missing tails of the cats, no doubt. A Joke on Brice. From the Cleveland Plain Dealer. One of the fraternity told me a story. A few dayN ago mi Irisb fellow citizen came to the office of an attorney, and said: ‘Tatrick has sued me for $5. I want you to bate biin,” and asked the attorney ivhat his retainer would be. "Tea dollars, if you please," replied the attorney. After he had received his retainer he said to his client: "Do you really owe Tat the $5 *” "Yes, sir; but be has sued me and 1 want you to bate him.” Said the attorney: ‘’You'll never hear of tiiis suit attain,” and he went off and in five minutes found "Pat," pave him $V took his receipt In full, and made Jfi In his attempt to "bate" him. This reminded another lawyer of a story lliat "Cal" Brice, now chairman of the national democratic commit tee, tells on himself. "Ctll" commenced prac tiee when quite young. He wont out before a country justice of the peace, argued a case, and won it. the justice deciding in nia favor. The opposing attorney took an appoal to a higher court. "Cal’s" client came to see him in a day or two afterward and aaid: “ ‘Cal," 1 want to pay you wbat I owe you; as this case is to go into court I'll have to hire a lawyer now." If this client did take his rase away it did not discourage "Cal," for he soon became dis tinguished In his specialty, that of a railroad lawyer, and rapidly sprang into wealth and prominence. Somewhat Misunderstood. Dram the IVashint/ton Pott. Cspt. George Brown, commandant of the Nor folk navy yaid, is at the Kbbltt. His predaces sor was Commodore Belknap, now commandant of the Hare Island navy yard, California. The commodore used to tell a little story with great gusto. "A young Isdv friend was stopping with my wife," said he, "and went up to the city to do some shopping. After making her purchases she ordered them scut to the comiuaudants house at the navy yard." " ‘W-whero?’ asked the clerk. ‘‘‘To the commandant's house at the navy yard," replied the youug lady. Do you under stand?' “ ’Oh, yos; certainly. 1 thought I hadn't heard you aright.' "When the young lady reach'd home she found uer bundled addressed tc MlissC— CvtthoU Dancy jUottw. .Navy Ya'd.'" ITEMS OF INTEREST. That article of female attire, the bustle, is a source of great trouble to custom house au thorities, as that is the place in which female smugglers hide most of their treasures. The bustle of a passenger on the Werra last week was searched, and twenty -four bracelets, three breastpins and nine pairs of earrings were found. One of the successful farmers of Iredell county, North Carolina, Col. Julian Allen, is a Russian nobleman. His true name is Julian Aieuski, and he was exiled from Russia in 1819 because of bis political principles. He was a colonel in the federal army, and In 1876 he set tled in Iredell county, where he has a splendid home and tarm. The only gift, so far as known, that Jay ever made to a church bangs in the belfry of a little wooden church at Roxburv, N. Y. It is a large, deep-toned bell, which cost Mr. Gould 82,000. The villagers are very proud of the gift, and they still point out to visitors a weather-beaten farm-house, about four miles from town, where Mr. Gould was born. A pretty young lady of Seattle, W. TANARUS„ re cently went into an employment office in that city, and said she was the owner of 160 acres of good farming land in Suchomish county, with sixty acres oleared. She also said she had a smalt sum of money, and her object was to secure a husband wuo would work the. farm and make her a good consort. She left her address with the agent and solicits correspondence from any one who wishes to secure a steady situa tion, a home and a pretty wife at the same time. German journalism has just entered on ita third century. In 1088 Christian Thomasius, who thought that the exclusive use of Latin was an impediment to learning, imd who wanted to see Germany free from the influence of schol astic pedantry, established at Leipgio a monthly periodical In the German language, in which he showed great skill in dealing with the questions which interested him. Thomasius’ monthly lived two vears, and was the first journal or periodical printed in the German language. Euikr Joseph Harvey of Pittsfield, N. H., who recently preached a sermon on the 50th an niversary of his ordination as a preacher, has been longer in the pulpit than any clergyman in the state, if not in New Eugland; and the record of his work is remarkable. He has averaged four sermons a week during those fifty year*, and the total is 10,400 discourses. He has con ducted 2,000 funerals, and so many weddings that he has lost track of the number; and he has preached in every town in the state, in nine teen states and territories, and in three of the British territories. A Norwich, Conn., man had a great horror of being burled alive, and several years ago he left directions as to the manner of his burial after he should have seemed to have died. His body was to he kept three days before being placed in the vault; then the coffin lid was to be re moved, and the vault so closed that a person could readily get out. A hammer was to be placed near his right hand, and a lamp was to burn in the sepulchre for three days and three nights. Not long ago he died and these instruc tions were carried out to a letter. He has not been beard from since. One of the remarkable women of the age is Miss Cornwell, whose success in deciding upon and estimating the properties of mines, has wou for herself the title of “The Princess Midas." She is English, but in babyhood was taken to Australia. Five years ago she began to visit mines and to ask questions She listened to the explanations of theorists, and got practi - cal miners to teach her what they knew. To the theories and facts thus obtained she added her own intuitions and judgments, and thus de veloped such a remarkable faculty for deter mining the values of mines that many persons think she has the gift of second sight. The London St. James' Gazette, speaking of the American small boy. says: “He abounds in Paris, he is common in Italy, and he is a drug in Switzerland. He is not only restless himself] but he is the cause of restlessness in others, Ile has no respect for the quiescent evening hour, devoted to cigarettes on the terrace after the table d'hote, and he is not to be overawed by a look. It is a constant source of wonder to the thoughtfully inclined how the American man is evolved from the American boy. No one need desire a pleasanter traveling companion than the American man; it is impossible to imagine one more disagreeable than the American boy.” “Electric prostration" may he called a new disease. It troubles workers under electric light, Severe cases are reported from Creusc.t, France, where an electric furnace is used for quickly heating metals. The light exceeds 100.000 candle powder, and the men suffer from it, and uot from the heat. After one or two hours the workers have a painful sensation in the throat, face and temples, the skin become* copper red, and an eye irritation begins that lasts forty-eight hours, the discharge of tears being copious. After five days the skin peels off. Dark colored glasses somewhat mitigate the effects of this tremendous light, Vit not en tirely. John Boyle O’REii-Ly. poet, author and fsa merly editor of the Boston Pilot, has had sofflß thrilling experiences in bis lifetime. At 21 was sentenced to be shot for disseminating Fenian ideassn the ranks of the Fourth Hussars, of which regiment be was a member. The sen tence was commuted to twenty years' penal servitude in West Australia. He escaped at the end of the first year and secured a berth on a whaler, which after a six months’ cruise again landed him in Australia. After a number of romantic escapes from capture he finally suc ceeded in embarking for America and reaching Philadelphia. A story illustrating Verdi’s eccentricity comes from a small bathing place in Germany, whither the composer had gone to recuperate himself. A visitor calling on him found him quartered in a vory small room, which from ap pearances served as a dining, dwelling and bed room. The guest expressing surprise at this arrangement, the composer explained: “Oh. I have two other large rooms, but I keep the articles hired by me in them," and he arose and showed his astonished visitor ninety-five barrel organs, remarking: “When I came here all these organs played ’Rigoletto.' Trovatore,’ and similar stuff. I have hired them from the owners. I have paid about 1,500 lire, but now X can enjoy my summer rest without being dis turbed,” He had lured every barrel organ in the district. An Exciting scene in the Chicago Chamber of Commerce recently is thus described by an eye witness: "Just as the wheaA market began to sag to-day. after its long continued upward movement, T. B. Hutchinson, the eccentric speculator, commonly known as Old Hutch,’ startled the board by apparently reckless buy ing, The old gentleman made two or three purchases himself, and then his broker, Crank Maginn, began to cnaff with Dealer Bloom about December wheat Bloom, in a bluffing spirit, said: ‘l’ll sell you a million December at All trading on the board stopped immediately and the brotcors crowded breathlessly around the two daring operators while they arranged for a SSSO,(WO deposit for margins.”' The deal is the biggest that has been made in recent years. An English corresponded, writing of the Liomlon success of the play “The Still Alarm," where a scene in an engine house is represented so well that the spectator!; howl with delight, says: "The play is American, the firemen are American, the engine has been brought over expressly from New York;but every one should know that, what looks so very wonderful on the stage might be seen any day on the Southwark Bridge road. The American and English sys tems differ by the merest trifle Our firemen may not be permitted to sing Christy minstrel part songs in dormitory; the watch do not sleep ou an upper floor, nor are compelled to slide down posts to their work, but are kept on the same level as the engine; hut us regards speed in getting out. harnessing horses, opening swing gates, and rushing to work, it would take the American firemen all their time to beat Capt, Shaw's men in getting to a fire." A San Fkancmco newspaper publishes an in terview with Capt. Henry White, who has just returned from Tin Juana, three miles north of San Diego. He said: "We hove just got con oesaions from the Mexican government by which e have a charter to est iblteh a regular Baden Baden at Tla Juana If you don’t quite oarcb an. let me add that the and arter of the lzm- UUaa Lottery company expires m three yca -s, and the company has offered to pay the entire debt of Louisiana for a renewal of twenty roars, but the state refuses.

She was confined to her bed for several years by this affliction, and could not help herself at all. She could not sleep from a violent itching and sting ing of the skin. The disease baffled the skill of the physicians who treated it. Her husband began finally giving his wife Swift’s Specific, and ehe commenced to improve almost immediately, and in a few weeks she was apparently well.
