The last three weeks of a presidential campaign are very tiresome to the man whose mind has been made up through con slant study and observation during times of political quiet. The New York Yacht Club has virtually accepted 1 .01 and Dunraven's challenge, so the prospects for an international yacht race in 1893, with the America’s cup as a prize, are decidedly favorable. Mr. Blaine’s sympathy is with the Re publican party, says Joe Manley. Mr. Blaine is himself sick, and knows the mel ancholy pleasure it affords sick people to condole with each other. Mr. Blaine’s case, however, is not so desperate us that of the g- o. p. Out of sixty reoent strikes and lookouts In Pennsylvania, reported on by the state bureau of industrial statistics, only two bave been successful to the workingmen, while the losses in wages have aggregated almost 43,000,000. The employers lost about *2,000,000 , The new University of Chicago is said to lack a college yell. That is something money cannot buy. The true yell, which shall sat isfy every demand of traok and field and at tbs same time afford tuneful refrains for the college hymn book, is a thing of growth as well as a joy forever. The Ohio Presbyterians are all torn np over the trial for heresy of Prof. Smith, of I.ane Seminary. Prof. Smith’s friends claim that the whole affair is a matter of spite, born of jealousy’, ami it is freely pre dicted that uo matter which way the trial goes there will be a split in Lane Seminary and a division in the church. The fight Id Vfest Virginia will be hot from now un|il the day of election. Al though Steve Elkius is bound to deliver the state to Harrison in payment for his seat in the cabinet, the democrats are confident of their ability to prevent him from carry ing out his bargain, notwithstanding the large immigration of colored men luto the state during the past year. Sir Arthur Sullivau says that rough trav eling is conducive to the production of good work by means of its brain-stimulating effect. In which case Savannah should bo full of poc-ts, composers, novelists und his torians. Take a ride on two or three of the electric roads and see if there is not rough riding enough in the trip to develop the powers of any kind of a brain worker. It is reported that one of the republican campaign documents has been summarily I tuppressed by ordor of the Secretary of the j Treasury. Toe document was on the cur- ! reocy question, and contained several fac ! similies of old slate hank notes. The law j rohib.ts the circulation of any imitation of money. The document suppressed must have been of very doubtful character, or Secretary Foster would never have sup- j pressed it. He has not yet become famous \ lor scrupulous correctness in political methods. Geu. Weaver does Georgia the honor of stating that she is not a monopolist; not even in eggs. He also found out Muring bis visit here that Georgia does not bel.eve in monopolies of any kind. A government monopoly of radri ads, steanjboats and tele graph lines is objectionable to Georgia, and she does not believe in federal authorities mo nopolizing tho management of elections at the point of the bayonet. as Weaver and bis henchmen would have to ho the order In tho south. Not even in liberty of t ought and action, and in the enjoyment of heaven's choicest blessings dees Georgia a monopoly. She would that every Blate should enjoy them with her. A Possible Market for Ex-car Horses. Recently there appeared in the local col umns of the Morning News an item con cerning the number of atreet car horses and mules that would be thrown upon the mar ket in consequence of the changing of the oar lines from horss power to electric power. Another item appeared in the tele graph columns of the Morning News a few days later telling of the formation in Philadelphia of a society for the promotion of the eating of horseflesh. “Rut two and two together,” as the say ing goes, and does not this Philadelphia idea seem to solve the problem of what is to become of the ex-car horses! And was not the genius who Instituted the society a bene factor to the car companies? The tnste for horseflesh may not bo natural, it is true. But neither is the taste for oysters. Both must be acquired. Dur ing the war many a southern soldier quicklr noqutrcd a taste for mule moat, and found it quite palatable, too. And sometimes the only objection they found was that there was too little of it. In India men eat snakes, in China thy oat dogs and rats, in Brazil they eat monkeys, in Lapland they eat whale oil; so why should not men in Philadelphia eat horses? The society mentioned was formed, not accidentally, but deliberately, and, it must be presumed, for the purpose of spreading happiness and brotherly love, through the medium of an acquired taste for horseflesh, throughout the range of its influence. With these lights before them, the car companies of this city who have, or may have, mules to dispose of might do well to communicate with the Philadel phians. Solicitor General Fraser. W. W. Fraser, Esq., the able solicitor general of the Eastern judioial oirouit, is a candidate for re-election to that important office. In the enforcement of the law s there is no officer upon whom devolves more re sponsibility than upon the prosecuting attorney. It is necessary, therefore, that he should t>e not only an able lawyer, but also a good citizen and fearless man, who would “nothing extenuate nor aught set down in malice.” Mr. Fraser has all the attributes which oommand the respect of the community, and his administration of his office has given entire satisfaction to the bar and benoh, and also to the entire community. There is no opposition In Savannah, and none that is known of in this judicial cir cuit, to Mr. Fraser's re-election, but only a desire on the part of the friends of another gentleman to seoure for him the solicitor generalship. Tbe situation in Virginia grows brighter as the time for the election approaches. It appears now that the democrats have a splendid prospect of sending a solid delega tion to congress, despite the alleged deals negotiated by Mahone. The democratic leaders are quite well satisfied that the re publicans Intend to conoentrate their efforts on the Second, Fourth and Filth districts. In the Fourth dlstriot the outlook is, according to a Baltimore Sun special, decidedly favorable to the eleottoa of James F. Kpes, the democratic candidate. On a full vote a* between tbe republicans and democrats the majority is largely in favor of the former, but the negroes, who have constituted the great body of the re publican vote in previous years, as they have become educated, have divided In sen timent, have become more liberal iu their viows, and have so voted as to give majori ties to the democrats in the last four years. It is believed that the Fourth will go demo cratic again this year aud that the other two districts that the republicans are count ing on will follow suit. Arkansas has a kind of miniature edtti n of John I. Davenport in the person of Chief Federal Supervisor of Election John Mc- Clure, known since the days of reconstruc tion as “Poker Jack ” Assisted by two clerks, he is busily engaged appointing sii* pervisors of election and forwarding them instructions. In flfty-on# of the seventy-five counties in the stale the republicans and populists have petitioned for the appoint ment of these officials. He expects to ap point about 2,000 supervisors. McClure oontends that the Arkausas election law in some of its provisions is unconstitutional. The instructions he is sending to the super visors, if obeyed, are curtain to res ilt in a serious clash between these offi cials and the eleotion judge, which would be just about what McClure wants, as he declares it his purpose to tost whether or not the federal goveruinent has any power in state elections. The immunity from punishment for his illegal methods that Davenport has so long enjoyed appears to be raising up a crop of pol itioal sharps to imitate his methods. New York and Washington politicians are inclined to believe that the nomination of a second democratic municipal tioket in New York will not effect the result of the national contest ono way or the other. They think the only possible affect will be to in crease tho interest in registration, and, con sequently, get out a larger vote on election day. If there was any probability of the County ticket endangering the election of a Tammany candidate there would undoubt edly be considerable trading that would be injurious to the national ticket, but there appears to bo no prospects of a close contest. An arrangement has been entered into, it is said, whereby the County Democracy is not to force the fight for their candidates any longer than Is nec essary to bring out the full party registra tion, and will then let the campaign drift so far as they are concerned aud devote all their tnergy to the success of the national ticket. Among the recent prominent converts from republicanism to democracy are Spencer Trask aud Editor 8. H. Nichols of the Social Economist cf New York. Hpen cer Trask is a member of the firm of Spen cer Trask & Cos., Wall street bankers, and president of the New York Edison Electric Illuminating Company, director of several railroads, and heretofore conspicuously identified with the Republican party. Mr. Trask gives as a reason for the change his belief that Cleveland oau he trusted far more on the silver question than Harrison. Iu regard to the tariff, Mr. Trask says the country is prosperous in spite of and not be cause of the McKinley bill. Editor Nichols ■ays bis reasons for leaving the Republican party are that he Aids it impossible to hope for a reasonable reform in tariff so long as republicans remain in power aud he be lieves the force bill attacks individual liberty. The republicans talk of Blaine saving New York for Harrison In 18t*2. But why did not Mr. Blaine save it for himself in 1888, when be stumped the state and city, aud always had his personal magnet bandy 1 TOE MORNING NEWS: SATURDAY, OCTOBER 22, 1892. Georgia and the World's Fair. The world's fair bnildings arn not yet completed. The grounds are dosed to the public, and the great exposition of 189 T is still in its chrysalis stage. Nevertheless, thousands upon thousands of people are \ flocking to Chicago this week from every ; Btate in the anion, to gaze upon halt finished buildings in which there are no exhibits. This rush proves that the great fair has taken a firm hold upon the minds of the ; people. They are eager for it. They can- I not wait umil everything is ready, but j must have a peep at it ahead of time. That peep will only whet their curiosity and fire i their patriotism. Next year they will all i go back to Chicago again, and oar.ry with them all of their friends who can raise the fare. The fair will drew together such orowd* as have never before been gathered In America. Men seeking profitable Invest - mente for their surplus capital will visit Chicago seeking “pointers.” Farmers who have grown tired of tilling the frozen soil of the far northwest with pickaxes and dynamite as their principal implements will visit the fair to see what tho states repre sented there have better to offer. Mer chants who have become disheartened in overc owded sections will attend the fair on the lookout for information that may be to their advantage. Representatives of im migration societies who have the placing of desirable immigrants, and nia j of the desirable immigrants themselves, will be in Chicago to learn what state offers the best Inducements to wealth-makers. . But it is useless to name who will l>e In Chicago for the purpose of learning the re sources of the states nnd what they have to offer buyers, manufacturers or workers. And, very naturally, the states best adver tised by their exhibits will be the states to attract tho-e people. Shall Georgia be among those well adver tised states .’ There is not a stats in the union with more to offer. Her resources are al tnoit unbounded, but lack development. Railroads gridiron the state, giving quick and cheap access to the seaboard or north ern markets, but along those railroads there are millions of acres of land lying idle. Yet who knows all of this except the people at home t And how are others to know it if they are never told? There is no better way to Bhow tbe world wbat Georgia is now and what she can be made than through a good exhibit at the world's fair. Col. Chariton H. Way, tbe state commissioner for Georgia, is now in Chicago in attend ance upon a meeting of the commissioners. When he returns he will probably have some interesting communications to make to the people. Then they should go to work and assist him in making an exhibit in Chi cago of whioh the state may be proud. It should not be forgotten that all depends upon the people and the various commercial bodies. Georgia, rs a commonwealth, has made no appropriation for the fair, and whatever is done must be accomplished by private enterprise. Put the Convicts on the Roads. The oonvict leaso system which now ob tains in this state is open to fatal objections and, as must be apparent to every one who has considered the matter, will have to be abrogated at no very distant day. Tbe s ate itself should have charge of lte convicts and work them where their work will do the most good without coming into compe tition with free labor; that is, upon the public highway*. A law organizing a state engineer’s de partment preparatory to the ohange would be a step in the right direction. Suoh a de partment, under a competent engineer, could begin as soon as organized to prepare plate, profiles and estimates for roadways to be built with convict labor, and, as ex isting contracts with oonviot employers run out, the prisoners could be transferred from the mines, or the saw.mills, or wherevsr they may be employed, to the public roads. It would necessarily take the chief en gineer some time—a year, probably,—to make surveys, estimates and drawings, and lay out enough work to start the convicts on the new road building system. During that year there would be nothing, on the roads, to show for the outlay on the part of the state. But once the work was under way, the wisdom of going about it scientifically would become apparent, and the state in the end would be the gainer to an Incal culable extent. In the general plan of the change of the lease system to the system proposed It should be provided that for the transporta tion of convicts or material fur road build ing, the carrier be paid in oonvlct labor; also, that some plan of sxchange be ar ranged whereby sections without materi als—such as stone—for road building pur poses might exchange convict labor for material with other sections. The engineer’s department would be re quired to ascertain where the best materials were to bo most conveniently had, the amount neoessury for the work laid out, the amount of convict labor (if any) to be ex changed for it, and make arrangements for transportation. This would, with the lay ing out of certain roads and other necessary details. be the preliminary work of the de portment, which might at first be run by one man. After the transfer, assistants to the engineer, whose duty it would be to supervise the construction of highways, could be added to the department as neces sary. This matter should have the attention of the legislature soon to assemble. And if our legislators are wiso, they will make the convict problem solve tho .problem of good roads. Every theator-goer in this broad land feels a pert >nai interest in Edwin Booth, consequently his present state of poor health is a niattei of general solicitude. Accounts that come from Lakewood, N. J., continue to tell of his decline. He is said to be pining away and growing thinner aud thinner aud losing ins strength daily. A gentleman who has recently visited iAkswood, speaking of him, says: "In the morning and after noon he can he seen walking about in sight -of all the people, but when evening comes be goes to his room and shuts himself in. What must be his thoughts at such times! Think how he must recall all the triumphs he has bad, and how sad he must feel, real izing that bis power to charm, to com mand, to enchant, has all departed.” It is reported that Mayor Graut, of New York, has been offered the presidency of a large distillery in Kentucky at a salary of *40,000 a year. And this, it is intimated, is the leason he declined to consider a third nomination for the mayoralty. When a reporter asked the mayor to deny or con firm the report, “he smiled a *40,000 smile and refused to do either." The distillers probably Intend to bring out a “Hugh J. Grant” brand of whisky in the hope of catching the eyea and tickling the palates of Tammany tipplers. SOUTH CAROLINA’S DEBT. 1 TILLMAN EINTS AT A CONSPIRACY AGAI /8T THE STATB. Certain Charlestonians Accused of Atdlnsr and Abetting the Sharks of New York in Trying to Force the State to Rec agnize Fraudulent Bonds and Secure Their Payment. Columbia, 8. C., Oct. 21.—Gov. Tillman returned from New York last night, having been on a visit to the metropolis with State Treasurer Bates with the view of making some arrangements toward tbe refunding of the state debt. Being requested to state tbe result of his mission, he dictated the fol lowing statement for publication: ‘•As it is a matter of general public In terest, nnd the people are keenly alive to know the result of our visit, as far as I oan I will make public the exact condition of the matter. “There is evidently a strenuous effort be ing made by the holders of the old fraudu lent bonds to force the state at this critical peri id into some sort of recognition ot their claims, and I am sorry to say that some of our own people in Charleston are lending aid and comfort, and are iu combination with the New York sharks who tattooed on the state’s misfortunes during the recon struction era. A MALICIOUS TELEGRAM. “To further their object a telegram was sent from Charleston, and was published in the New York papers the day after we reached there, asserting that we were in favor of the issue of the C , per cent, bonds to redeem tho 6 per cent. Browns, and the issue of the new bonds to the amount of $1,250,0(10 to take up the fraudulent bonds. “Of course ttds falsehood was read in New York, aud it had the effect of direct ing attention to tbe existence of the old fraudulent debt and lent color to the charge, which met us in every direction, that the state at one time had repudiated its obliga tions. “Then we found that political Influences had been and were still at work throwing every obstacle possible in the way of the success of our mission, FINANCIERS AGAINST THEM. “In addition to that, the weight of the financial centers of the state were against us. Owing to the virtuul cessation of busi ness, produced by the Columbian celebra tion, and tbe feeling of unrest aud distrust whioh exists because of tbe uncertainty as to whioh party will be victorious in the coming election, we found capitalists unwilling to make any offer which we oould accept; aud, therefore, after having formed the acquaintance of and dis cussed the situation with some of the lead ing financiers on the street, we determined to return home aud wait ufttil after the election. “I am not at all discouraged by the obsta cles which 1 have shown to exist, and unless theßepublican party is victorious in the pres ent contest, aud carries both House and Sen ate, I have every reason to believe that we will have no trouble in arranging the refund meat of the debt to the satisfaction of the general assembly. "Of course if all three branches of tbe government fall into the bands of tbe re publicans it would foreshadow interference with local control by the southern stales of their governments and make capitalists very shy of investiag in our securities, and it is the desire to await the result of tbe election more than anything else which has prevented our aooomplishing what we want to do. BOUND TO SUCCEED. "I would say for the Information and benefit of the conspirators who sent the telegram from New York the night we left there— ‘which stated that Gov. TiUmaa did not accomplish anything in the matter, and it might as well he ■ understood, first ami last, that nothing of value can be accom plished until provision is made for the non fundible bonds’ —that they and the ‘southern capitalist* who are now trying to do what they can,’ who at e evidently in collusion with each other, will have their labor for their pain 9. “The debt will be refunded by Dr. Bates and myself or not at all, and their med dling will only result In harm. The state will meet all its honest obligations dollar for dollar —if wo are not thwarted by all the influences which I have mentioned, and the result of the eleotion—but never a oent by my advice or approval wi 11 go to pay the fraudulent debt.” POLITICS IN NEW YORK. Gov. TiUmaa also found time to say a few words about politics as he saw it in New York. He said that as far as he ceuld judge, the outlook for the success of the Democratic party was favorable, and the politicians be met were sanguine of Cleve land's eleotion, “Being a stranger to New York meth ods.” said the governor, “I had to rely on the expressions of opinion by those with whom I talked. I met some of the Tam many leaders with whom 1 ‘fit, bled and died’ at Chicago, and they expressed con fidence in the situation. “I called on Mr. Cleveland aftar I had learned that he had expressed a desire to see tne, ami I had a very pleasant half hour ohat with him.” CAROLINA'S FAIR The Prospects Very Rosy—Tho Open ing Four Weeks Off. Columbia,S. C., Oct. 21.—Secretary Hol loway was in the city to-day, and be said that the prospects for the state fair are very rosy. The fair is four weeks off, but already 150 horse Btalls and 155 cattle stalls have been engaged. To give an idea of the extent of the entries in addition to the horses and cattle he mentioned that two ladles from Illinois have sent in a list of entries numbering 140 different articles, while notice has been given by ladies from Virginia, Missouri, Kansas and elsewhere of largo exhibits of fancy work. Luring Brown, the famous Georgia poul try man, will have a large exhibit of poul try and, from all indleatious, the exhibits In this department will be finer and larger than ever, which is saying a great deni, for Mr. Brown pr nounced the display of two years ago the finest he had ever seen in all his travels. The fair will begin on Nov. 14, and con tinue throughout that week. Exhibits must be entered by Nov. 11. The Columbia Fair Association has ar ranged to have Paine give a first-class dis play of pyroteohuies. The piece contracted for is the great, spectacular presentation of “I'nrls From Empire to Commune.” The contract provides that Paine is to gve five productions of t ,1s beautiful show, begin ning Monday night, Nov. 14. The per formances will be given in the ravine just in the rear of the fair grounds, where a lake 150x50 feet will be provided for the float ng of some of the pieees. Provision will be made for 10,000 people. In witnessing this grand speotaole the audience is kept for more than two hours face to facs with the constantly shifting scenes and startling transformations of one of the most eventful periods in the history of France. The presentation of this real istic pictorial drama involves the use of an immense amount of soenery and mechan ical paraphernalia and 300 persons to take part toerein. The merchant* are oontemplating supple menting the racing purses by 11,000. WARREN COUNTY’S FAIR. The Bespeaks the Prosperity of the People. Warrenton, Ga.. Oot. 21.— 1f fairs evi dence the standing of a county, then War ren county is in a prosperous condition. A gentleman from abroad remarked; * ‘There is no necessity of visiting the expositions when we cau see the same things at War renton at loss cost—on a smaller scale of course. No one thinks of bard times as he views the monstrous iota toes, turnips. pumpkins, etc. In a tew word?, the Helds, the gardens, tbe orchards, r.re laid under quite a trib ute. In the ladies' department there were tier upon tier of jellies, pre served and canned fruits of ail descriptions and colors; cakes, ligbtbread, home-made soap, wines, vinegars, dried fruits, dreeses, ouilts and fancy work of every description. Outside the poultry, turkeys, geese, docks, opossums and racoons engaged the atten , tlon. Further on were the stills containing stock, etc On the opposite side tbe race track. The prizes offered are numerous. CHIPS FROM CANDLER An Orange Grower fetarts for Bis Old Home to Die. Candler, Fla., Oct. 21.—Among the ar rivals here this week are Frank Jones aud family from Tippecanoe county, Indiana, and H. S. Williams and family of the same place. A sad party left the depot by the noon train Wednesday. A. F. Bowls and wife left for Lewiston, Mo. Mr. Bowls is hardly ex pected to reach that place alive, as he is in the last stages of consumption. He came here ten years ago and by hard work and economy had made a beautiful orange grove aifM was surrounded with every comfort. He leaves to try to get back to his old home to see his aged father and mother before his death, but it is hardly possible for hint to stand the journey. T. M. Rickards accom panied them. Oranges are being shipped from some parts of the state half green. This is a great mistake, as many growers here will testify. A great many were shipped from this section green last season and did not pay expenses. The people should let them ripen before shipping. DR BRIGGP* CASE. The Presbyterian Synod Adopts a Sub stitute for the Two Reports. Albany, N. Y., Oot. 21.—The Presby terian synod to-day, upon motion of Prof. J. E. Willis Beecher, adopted this substi tute for both the minority and majority reports on Dr. Briggs’ appeal: In the matter of the Briggs' case, the committee finds the oomplaint to be in or der, but recommends that it is not expedient to take action at the present time for the following reasons: 1. The case, through the action of the general assembly and of the presbyteries of New York, is again before the presbytery, and the com plainants will there have their remedy In their own hands. 2. In case the remedy in their own hands Is not sufficient they will afterward have oppor tunity by appeal or complaint to bring the case again before the synod The case on this decision of the synod goes baok to the New York presbyteny for trial Nov. 9 without the synod taking any stand whatever on the question in dispute. Tippling in Canada. “I was over in Canada several years ego,” said Col. Child to the Kansas City Times, "and for good whisky and brandy at a low price I want to say that the Dominion takes th ■ prize I was in Windsor with a party of Missourians one day, and with one of them I strolled about looking at the town. Becoming somewhat worn we began to cast about for a ;place whereat to buy some brandy. We came upon it very soon, I told the man in charge to llx up two good pale Heunesay punches In my travels I have tasted tbe decoctions of all lands, hut I am sure a better mixture never tickled the palate of man than that pale Hennessy punch of Windsor make. I tossed a half dollar out In payment, and with a last smack of my lips started to go, when the barman called ms back. “ 'Don’t forget your change,' he said, and with that he handed 40 cents to me. •• • What’s this?’ I asked. 'What is the price of those punches!’ “ 'Five con IS each,' responded the man behind the bar. , 'I turned squarely around again, and bringing my two fists down hard on the counter, I called in stentorian tones: • * ’Fill ’em up again !’ “When we got on the str et again we met eighteen of our Missouri friends. I stopped them. “ ’Come in here and do os I do.’ I said. “The party followed me into tne place from which I bad just emerged with my friend. “ ’Give me a brandy punch.’ I said. “Faeh of the nineteen who were with me made the same request. Ia five minutes the seductive mixtures were tossed oft and my guests were wondering at my extravagance. I threw a dollar on tbe bar, at which the man hshlnd nuoded hi- thanks. My friends stared at me, and one or theai asked what it all meant. “ ‘Hennessey brandy punches sell at 6 cents apiece in Windsor,’ I said with an air of triumph. For an Instant there was not a sound’ Then my nineteen friends hit the bar with their lints, and ia tones that oould be heard across the Detroit river they shouted: • ’Fill ’em up again V ” The Young Widow.

But I know a little widow Who could win and fool you all. From the Modern Novel. Faithful to her promise, and with beating heart, quotes tn* Boston Globe, she noiselessly glided along the dimly lit corridor, in which reigned the awful stillness ef death. At tho door of the “blue chamber" she paused for an instant, and, giving one swift, frightened glance around, disappeared Into the recesses of that mysterious apartment, within whose walls lay hidden the silent family secret of Granmore Grange. A moment later a sudden, piercing shriek ran out upon the midnight air—a cry startling in its agenixing wail. Witheut delay the door was rapidly burst open by the hastily-awakened household,when, to their horror and amazement, a heart-rending eight met their gaze.

Tipperus&lem was the happy compro mise between one oromoter who wanted to name the place Tipperary and another who de sired to call it Jerusalem. A Kentucky man has a water spaniel that he has taught to extinguish fire whenever it sees anything burning. To test the little dog, a piece of paper was ignited aud dropped on tho floor. In an instant tbe dog jumptii upon it and very quickly extinguished the flame by rubbing it with its paws. The dog was tried with a lighted cigar, with the same result. A writer in Science 6ays that there is no element of speech so variously prouounced in dialect and by individuals as the letter R. All varieties, he explains, are derived from a fric tional emission of breath or of voice between two surfaces in the breath channel It may be made in the throat, in tbe gutteral passage be tween the back of the tongue and the soft pal ate, between the arched top of tbe tongue and the roof of the mouth-common in the United States, the normal R, produced between the point of tne tongue and the upper gum, and by transferring the sound from the tongue to the lips so that R has the sound of W. Another series results from a rattling organic vibration instead of a mere friction of the breath or voice. Thb old corn field on the Washington farm at Mount Vernon proved a veritable gold mine to its owner during the visits of the grand army men, says A ’.ate field's Washington- The veterans appeared eager for mementos ot their visit, and ears of corn retailed at 25 cents each and held stiffly to that rate, as a man with a gun was stationed at the source of supply to prevent the flooding of the marfcet with stolen property. Kansas farmers, who regularly put corn into their fuel bins as well as their barns, paid a quarter of a dollar apiece for ears of corn which they would scorn to acknowledge as tho product of their own farms. Next year there will be a shabby, straggling patch in the corners of many a western field, which tbe owner will point to with pride as raised from seed from the Mount Vernon farm, and aftoldcn corn cob over the dining room chimney piece will serve to remind the family of the old mansion on tne Potomac. The general superintendent of the life saving service has just received Information of the death of old Neptune, a horse that has quite a remarkable history. He was the first horse purchased by the government for the life sav ing service, and for twenty years past, regard less of wind or weather, he fa thfully performed the duty of carrying the midnight patrol at the Arrategue Beach station to the limits of his post, a distance of !3Vy miles. He learned the limits of his beat so well that, however dark or stormy toe night, ho knew at once when he reached there, ad no amount of persuasion would cause him to go turther. At the time of his purchase he was a beautiful iron gray, but the hardships of the beach and advanced aged turned him snow white. Old Neptune on num erous occasions renderet valuable assistance in saving life. lie knew Ids duties so perfectly that he was regarded as a most important ad junct to the crew. The men beoame very much attached to him and gave him an honorable burial on High Hill, Va.. within sight of tho beaten track whereon be bad passed the beet part of his life. , The substitute for gla*s brought to notice some time ago by a tnanufa Direr in Vienna, Austria, oh- erves a writer m tne New York Sun, is pronounced a practicable tiling, likely to be introduced as valuable for certain purposes. Tue article is produced by dissolving from 4 to 8 pans of collodion wool in about 100 parts by w eight of ether, or alcohol, or acetic ether, and with this are intimately combined from 2 to 4 per cent, ef castor oil and 4 to 10 per cent, of rosin or Canada balsam. This compound, when poured upon a gloss plate and subjected to the drying action of a current of air of about 50* cent., solidifies la oomparatively short time into a transparent glass-like -beet or plate, the thickness of which may he regulated as required. The sheet or plate so obtained has substantially the same properties as glass, resisting the notion of salts and alkalies and of dUuteacida, and like glass, is transparent and h-s no smell. Again it is ■aid to be pliable or flexible and infrangible to a great degree, while its Inflammability it much lesa than that of the collodion substitutes. Any desired color may be imparted to the compound by admixture ot the necessary pigment, the lat ter to be soluble in the solvent used in the pre paration of the compound, if incorporated therewith; but color may be Imparted by sur face application, aniline dies being employed, and thus the sheets may be used in Ueu of stained glass. Frederics G, Geeree, n German professor of zoology and comparative anatomy, the au thor of that remarkable book, "The True De scent of Man," ia the high priest of the extraor dinary doctrine of man,‘the noblest work of God,’' being a descendant of the bear' At one time, says tho Bt. Louis Republic, this professor of p culiar views occupied the chair of compar ative anatomy at Williams College. Williams town. Mass., and may do so even to this day for aught I know to the contrary, Speaking of his theory as opposed to that of the descent from apes, which he says has been falsely called the "Darwinian theory," he says: "An ape has none of the characteristics of a man. An ape imitates-a man reasons An ape has four hands, all of which are unlike either the bands or feet of man. Apes are Idiots, something that cannot be said of tne vary low est orders of mankind. I say that man has de scended from bears, and 1 can prove it. In a museum at Paris I saw the skeleton of a cave bear, which I examined very closely. I was con vinced at the time that the animal bad a par tially developed knee-pan, aad since that time I have given the matter much study. I went over In my mind to a time beyond the hlsterv of man. * * * I remembered that ske etons of primeval man had been found in eayes with bears • * Another thing, nearly all skeletons of primeval man are of gigantic size. The bear Is nearer the size of a man than the average ape. and could have gotten rid of his little fragment of a tail much more easily than an ape could of his. My Idea is that the earlier bears came down from the north, probably through Bering straits, and drifted toward the tropic shores of Asia on icebergs. As these melted the bears easily found shelter on islands and along the coast of the mainland, in the course of ages great floods came and the bears sought shelter in caves. In the meantime great changes had been going on: the hear had been gradually shedding his heavy coat as a result of exposure to tropical heat; he had also learned to walk on his hind feet. In the caves, in the dry, warm atmosphere, other changes took place. The connecting link was a kind of a hairy, inde scribable man. who lived and diet in these caves beside his elder brother, the bear." ©ENTS’ FURNISHING GOODS.
