The authorities | s ta,te there has not been a legal Pat. marriage in Rhode Island for 50 years and will apply to the legis laiure to have the acts of all uu licensed clergymen made valid. According to this thc-orv if the sexton was required to register yearly* and he failed to comply with the law all the stiffs that he has depossted in the bone y*ard, ., VO uld not be legally buried, r i a g e a voluntary act on the part of the contracting parties and is binding without the solemnation of judge or priest. The right to make marriage contracts is inher ent in the constitution of human Mar nature. A iaw to prohibit mar would be unconstitutional nage and void. Consequently a law which in any way* interferes with human rights and privileges is unconstitu tional and void. There will be a great many issues in this year's campaign confiued tp questions oi interest to the people of this state, one of the most im portant of which will be the vote on the constitutional. amendment authoring equal suffrage, and every one will be interested in the full discussion of the subject. There will be another Senatorial contest in which the preliminary* sparring will,, as usual, be the most interest ing part; also the different state conventions to choose delegates for St. I.-ouis and Chicago and to name state tickets, with the accompany ing discuision of the advisability of fus;on.

"The people ot Washington ride bicycles; the street cars are run by' elecricity and the government is run b_v jack asses. No need for horseflesh.''—Gazette. If we go out under the skies at night and gaze up to the heavens and reflect upon the huge bodies that there are moving with resist less force, and yet rhythmical or der, through space, bodies on which our round earth would scarcely be more than a block; if then we reflect further that this earth is so vastly greater than we, that we are no more to the whole than a grain of sand is to the out - put of a quarry, we shrink within ourselves and recognize our puny insignificance. A good dose of this severe medicine takes the boast fulness and crowing out of most of us; and we can spare them, for if ever there were a rooster with a throat of brass and a larynx of plat inium./he could hardly keep up with some people's self-satisfied noise and clatter. Thi3 kind of be litt lernest is whstesome as a cor rective, but no one Iive3 and thrives on quinine, r.or can we live and thrive morally if we are in a con stant state of shrink-in-your-sheli and-euri-up.
