California prune crop is said to be very large. That accounts for the fullness of this administration of that j icy fruit Hox. Grekn R. Keli.ar, editor of the Carli&le Mercury, will be a candid ate for secretary of state. Mr. Kellar is a gentleman well fitted for the place. The Burgin Messenger issued a handsome boom edition last week which reflected great credit upon its hustling editors and proprietors. Ihe press work was especially fine. Bow things do change. It used to be the custom to do white-washing in the spring of the year, but now the administration has changed the prac tice by doing the calcimining when winter is almost upon us. TnE fakir with "Lots for Sale" has swung his sign in Cuba and is said to be doing a big business. If there are any capitalists left here-abouts who failed to get enough of Kentucky boom towns, they should go to Cuba imme diately, call early and avoid the rush. All the great Powers in the world save Germany have agreed to partici pate in the international disarmement conference suggested by the Czar of Russia. Germany is said to be feeling the position of its closests friends be fore giving an answer. Germany's failure to participate would block the plan. The American Commissioners at Ha 7&nna expect to have the American flag flying over Havana within three weeks. Ihey believe that the pres ence of American troops will greatly hasten the movement of the Spaniards and will facilitate the distribution of relief supplies. The W. a T. U. want ginger-pop used at the banquet to be given the President at Chicago. The average banquet of today is only a big drunk, and the word "banquet" is used mere ly as a blind. It might be called a "res pectable jag." Take the wine and whisky out and these gatherings would be like the play of Hamlet with Hamlet left out Now is the time when a man looks at his last two or three years' overcoat and wonders whether it will answer for another campaign, while the good wife hurries to the shop and invests any number of dollars in a new wrap, with a long tail, utterly neglecting that sealskin, which is a little out of style, because the sleeves are too big, or too little. And yet we wonder at the interest in the question, is marri age a failure? Ex. The Courier-Journal published Mon day morning from its Washington cor respondent a careful summary of the outlook for the congressional elections next month. The Democrats will need a gain of fifty-four members in order to control the next House, and it is considered hardly possible for such a gain to be made without a land slide. It is quite possible that the Populists may hold the balance of power in the next House. Fiftt or sixty thousand troops will be sent to Cuba, Secretary Alger says. They will not be concentrated ft ly more than is necessary. After all the regiments needed for Cuban service have been designated about 50,000 will be left in camps. The camp at Lexing ton, Camp Meade in Pennsylvania, and Camp Black in New York, are to be abandoned and only the Southern camps will be maintained for 'winter quarters of the remaining troops. If the American Republic is to live, we must provide against political cor ruption in high places, remarks the Lexington Argonaut We must esti mate its character, the law of its mo tion, the orbit of its course, its magni tude, and the spirit of the power which presides over its activity. Villainous causes beget villainous effects. The effects of disaster to our army arise from no other cause, except Republic an corruption, associated with the hy draheaded enemy of humanity avar ice and greed. ORGANIZED 1888.

My own position is that the United States should take and keep every foot of ground that has come to us by virtue of thrashing the Spaniards. We 'should do this without listening to or considering the opinion of any other nation.
