The "trade of politics" has become se

Mr. Paynter has made a geed Representa

has received prompt nttentien. This is
net saying a great deal it is true, but it is
much mere than any Democratic paper
would say of a Republican Representa
tive, no matter what his capabilities or
performances, and it is much mere than
ran be said of any of Mr. Paynter's
Democratic predecessors.
But while The Lewieu is willing te de
justice te the geed points In Mr. Paynter's

Luugest Sentence In ttie Lnlih haaaaigt.
The longest sentence in English litera
ture is found in the act of Parliament,
29, Geerge IIIV chapter C9, entitled "An
act te prevcut the enlisting or engage
ment of his majesty's subjects te serve
in foreign service, and the fitting out or
equipping in his majesty's dominions ves
sels for warlike purposes witjieut his
majesty's license." The second section
of this act contains but one sentence.
with 807 words in it, and without a single
step between its first word "and" nnd its
last word "convicted." The seventh sec
tion of the present English foreign enlist
ment net forms one sectence of 000 words

v Tbr Ideal Wife.
"There is no greater blessing can be
fall a thinker than a union with a woman
who is at least his peer in her apprecia
tions," writes Wnlter Blackburn Hart in
The iVt'v England Magazine; " and It must
be remembered that Balzac claimed that
'appreciation is complete equality.' A
woman worldly enough te protect a
thinker from the world, and unworldly
enough te live with in the world of his
thought and immncinatien, is the ideal
wife for the man of high aims, and with
such a woman n mnn can live serenely iu
the most desirable society. Emersen
aptly puts it thus: ' When a man meets
his accurate mate society begins and life
is delicieus.' In an atmosphere of love
and sympathy one lives mere vividly;
there is a spur in every meeting, an in
spiration in every absence.
"Life Itself begins with such a union,
the old ndage that ' he lives twice who
lives well,' has mere meaning when it is
twisted te read, he lives twice who loves
well, and wisely. The man who is rich
iu himself, his sympathies, his various
magnetisms, and reciprocatiens, is the
truly rich man; his store does net tempt
the vulgar te robbery or excite the envy
of his neighbors, for te them this world
of the immaglnatleu is nothing; and
granting all possible human separations
and afflictions such a store will last a life
time. These nrc the riches te accumu
late. One's own society is thu society te
cultivate; ami te make it attractive te
one's self and ethers, one must cultivate
one's keif. This is the ferret of true
greatness, true gentleness, true manners
and true morality."
Uew It Keels tu He Knocked Out
Says Jehn L Sullivan In his new book.
"I have never been knocked out myself,
as the public well knows, but as I have
put se many ether men te sleep after this
fashion I have had a geed chance te find
out what their feelings were. The most
effectual point te reach a man te knock
him out is right en the point of the chin.
In explanation of this the doctors tell me
that point is connected with the spinal
column, nnd the effect for the time is te
paralyze the brain, though net effectually
te weaken him. The sensation, as it is
described te be, is ubeut the same as that
felt by a man who has been under the in
fluence of ether and is coming out of it.
A man's mind, they tell me, seems con
fused, sick, giddy. He has no feeling of
pain, but simply a sense of numbness or
deaducss which renders a man non earn
pos mentis for the time. Te verify what
I have said about there being no :iln, I
can mention severe! Instances where men
have ceme te after having been knocked
out, mid instead of complaining Of pain,
asked various questions, showing that
they were simply insensible te all feel
ings or acquaintance with the surround
ings. I have heard men ask very differ
ent questions. Fer instance ene fellow
at Nashville, Tcnn., that I had knocked
out, came te in about twenty minutes,
and the first thing he said was, 'Did I
wlnV Anotherman that I had knocked
out said, "When de I go en 7" net re
membering anything about fighting I
think, In fact I am sure, (hat the effect of
a man being knocked out is net as serious
as people think, mid leaves no mark, nor
dees in inlllctny special damage."

New Ohleans, Sept 7. The fight be

night It took Dixen a few seconds
less than thirty-two minutes te knock

Jack Skelly. The fight lasted eight
rounds, and, after the first one, the re
sult was never in doubt 'The rich
purse of S7.50O nnd the slde bet of ?5,00J
was a gift pure and simple for the littl
colored champion. In the opening
round the colored boy fought for th
Brooklyn lad's head and face, but he
