To the Republican Central Committee of Custer Coulnty, M. T.: Gentlemen-It is with einoere regret that I beg you to accept my sesIgua tiou from a place on your ticket for the legiulature. tie:ore tendering thi to you 1 have tried bard to tee my way clear to continuu one of your candi dates, as I am deeply Interested in the welfare of the ticket, and not in this only but in some matters of legislation bearing on the stock Industry. Yet I am compelled, owing to important ohsiness engagements, to ask you to take back the nigh compliment you have so unanimously given me, and for which I feel profoundly grateful. While there was a misunderstanding in placing my name before the con vention. I would gladly have made the raee had it been In my power. Trust log you will find one more available, more competent, and more worthy to run, and in this I feel confident you will be successful. With best wishes, for the ticket and the party generally, I am Yours very truly. JOE SCOT'. A meeting of the executive commit tee was called yesterday to consider the resignation of Mr. Scott fronm the ticket and the tilling of the vacancy. The unanimous choice of the commit tee having centred on Mr. James B. Kempton that gentleman waeapprised of his selection, and after giving the matter due consideration he signified his aeceptance, and is now the nomi nee of the repubtcuan party for conu ciloman. "The Treai+urerlhlp." It is no doubt a very desirable qual Ity in a fighting man, not to kuow when be le whipped; this quality our pugnaocious little friend the Courier meers to possess to a marked degree, for after being completely used up by the JOURNAL'S article an the treseur erbip on Sunday, it comes up last aight very groggy and makes a few feeble peases, more for recognition than with any hope of doing anybody any damage. Some of the effsets of the JOURanL'S broadside of Sunday may be briefly noted. The Courier has no more to say about the saoumulation of trusts, public and private, In one per -so, and by the way in recounting Mr. Merrill's many positions of trust and emolument, we forgot to mention that be is, In addition to all other things, a United States oommlasioner. The Courier has nothing more to say about the "double omofficial" and the lelarde main be is supposed to Practles is costing the funds. In feet no part of the original line of argument that was brought to bear upon Mr. Batebe. lor, is retained ezeept the one that re fleets directly on his Integrity as an otiial and an individual, for in this consideration the two eansot be esepe ated. If there is anything In the Courier's latest attack on Mr. Batobe lor, it Is that be being an officer of a bank, will necessary misappropriate the funds. Mr. Batehelor's business integrity needs no sponsor in tbiscom munity, and the Courier knows it as It knows that the inuendoe it throws out in this reward are conteasntible and beneath notice. No voter with a spoonful of brains is golng to be mls led by the holy horror with which the Courier afeects to regard the practloes hinted at by the JOURNAL in the matter of disoounts and interest on de posits. It Is not news to anybody ex cept perhaps the Courier, and though not recognied oin law, these tblhngs are such well known perquisites of the ofMf that they are tacitly reognioed as of right belonging to the treasurer. They will no doubt be regarded as a "hamelem confeslon" by the inno sent little Courier, but if there Is amy sense or merit In affootng to be blind to what is in plain sight before us, the JOURNAL does not recognise it. We regret exceedingly that our coatempo. rary hb seen ft to push its ight on Mr. Batchelor in the directlon of an attack upon blhi honesty and Integrity. For this Is a question outside of the pale of disclumlon, and persistence in it cannot fell to react on the candidate whose ends are sought to be furthered by this questionable warfhre. "Whe's Afr.d." A oelebrated photographer while making pictores aleag the rough coast of NOw alglead, et his eamesa o take the view of a double row of rocks off York Beach, Maine, with the wave dashing over them, when three sunny-faced children appeared on the scene from behind the rocks where they bad been hidden fronm view, run. ning towaJds the water as though to plunge into the surf and by accident halted directly in front of the camers already set, when a clear manly voice, from a distance, rang out the warning to the younger child. "My Darling Don't Go Near the Water!"' they turned, each in a characteristic pose, and the reply came from the little one, " Who's Hfraid !" snap went the rubber on the camers, and the suno beams had tfied forever a picture, p1. quant, roguish and withal such a touch of nature such as no artist's fancy could ever bring forth.

A ;FAPTER ON "LOCUSTS." :.wthode of Maklag Mlule-- rrowlrlag A ihe Oround-A Pantiag QWeesle. There are several kinds do cicada aboutl ncluding tei seventeen-year and the thirteen-year "locuet," which ate no rusts at alL but rel dcicadas. 'The c that makes most of our summer music is an annual visitor. They all live in the grub state most of their lives then come out of the ground, crawl up a convieent tree, fasten in their claws rip open their skins along the back, and then. by a seies of patient dorta, crawl out. or back out of the crack, perfect insects. They have now long ganzy wings, wide heads and handsome, rge eyes. When they first emerge their wings are folded and wet. Their Qst need i to dry of; so their wings ae slowly unfokled and fanned gently aUaih the air. Mean while the juicy creature evaporants a ,deal dof it bulk, and is soon well In about e hour it is ready for ight, and takes a pch higher among the li-bs, when tle male begin at aus to strike their love noe. The muso Is made by the vibrlaton of chords In a he low in their desr behind their wins, th vibration striking a tightly drawn membrane above them. 'ImlO alter, nation of contracting and rslt tihea chords produces the nose which we all a bre or whis. The seventeen sad this e. year eleaes, or "locuts" oame out about a month earlier, and their bah its while oatalde, as true inseet.s are about the same as u df the annual visitor.

It s still more curious to observe te contrast between the sense organs of the perfect isect and those of the pups. The latter has spent his life under ground and Is shaped for that sort of life, a narrow head for pushing through the dirt, sharp claws to din with and no w Heas i peeuuiarly ettsd with wpm to secree abundant molaure and to e erate it, so that as he tunnel his burroe ase made warpoorth siclky claw ton.

That the rst e. cada was a creature that tried to hide itself, and burrowed slightly. Those that burrowed best were safest, and -o the burrowing instinct was slowly formed. But how about these seventesn year creaturts? I suppose a good deal ei our trouble in thinking out these prob lems is Ihaus we have no idea how tiny brains or w.ere uerve centers think and what th(v. are capable of purposing. Very clearly, we do not do so much of the thinking of the world as we some. times sulppose that we do. And those people who deyi reason of any sort to the animal world simply show that they themselves are unable to re::son.
