Paris cassimettes are light broad
cloths of summer weight that cost
sometimes as high as $'J a yard.
New vests are cut with four but
ton?, and have userpentine braid laid
on about oue-l'ourtu of inch from the
, edge.
Dress coats are now made with
very small cord binding on the edge,
the size ol a steel knitting-needle
which gives it a line umsh.
Full-dress trousers have a stripe
down the outside seam on the leg
made of silk braid for young men, or
or slight com lor elderly gentlemen
In full dress for gentlemen there
has been a tendency to change a lit
tie from the conventional black cloth
to the wale cord of line diagonals of
French manufacture.
The vest for full dress is cut as low
as the coat, with wide lapels, and is
fastened with three buttons. Any
thing extreme in . the cut and finish
of such a suit is carefully avoided by
en or taste.
The swallow-tail dress coat, with
its low-cut front, has lappels faceil
with the heaviest silks, and its edges
are finished with a line cord. The
silk facing, however, is a matter of
taste and may be omitted.
Scotch homespun plaids, worsteds
and cassimeres, or neat, small checks
and mixed threads of color, are used
for the .entire suit, coat, vest and
trousers, worn by men during bust
ness hours. The goods with red,
brown and green threads, woven to
gether to produce quiet, dark effects,
are most liked.
Small checks and tine stripes and
dark colors will be chosen for trousers
1 his season. All high colored goods
will De avoided Dy well dressed men,
The trousers are cut medium, that is,
neither tight nor loose, and in all
cases pantaloons intended to wear
w.ith a full-dress suit are made with
the pockets in the top seam, instead
of on the side or in the corner as
others. Tho reason given for so dis
posing of the said pocket is to get it
in such an inconvenient plTice that a
man will never be tempted to put his
hivnd intuit in moments of idleness or
- embarrassment.
Tile Proper Indian Policy., .
V lElmira Advertiser.
If white men. in almost any part of
. the west, were guilty of committing
organized rapine and murder, the citi
zens of the aillictwl communities
would not call upon the government
twice for redress and protection be
fore taking the matter into their
own hands. Unless an Apache is
better than a white man, there is no
reason why the citizens of Arizona
are not justilied in their determina
tion to punish the murderous Indians
who have been killing men, worse
than killing women and carrying off
children into captivity. Cold shot is
about tho only argument that will
have any effect upon the Apaches,and
it is to be hoped that argument will
' be freely used upon them until they
can learn that helpless women and
innocent children fcave some rights
they are bound to respect.

Origin of the Name "Texas,
A writer in a Philadelphia paper
relates the legend of the origin of the
name "Texas, as told to her by Gen
eral Sam Houston when she was u
little girl. General Houston had it
from an Indian chief, as follows: "A
long time ago, when the Spaniards
overran and plundered Mexico, some
of the red men left them and came
towards the rising sun. They crossed
the Rio Grande, and not knowing
what lay before them, entered the
great salt marshes. The traveled
many days and round but mue sweet
water or game, ine weather grew
hot and many little streams dried up,
and the grass withered, and many old
men and women and children died ot
thirst. One day, after many weeks
of weary walking, a party of young
braves, who had been sent
ahead to reconnoitre, came run
ning back and said? "We have
found water; . come on!"
This '
good news put life into their veins,
and although nothing could be seen
but a dry, tlat, bald prairie, the scouts
were standing still calling and beck
oning to them and pointing towards
something apparently at their ieet.
At length they reached the spot where
the braves were standing. Ffty feet
below them the limpid waters of the
Colorado sang a melody to heaven.
Beyond, far as even an Indian vision
could reach, stretched a green ex
panse. The tall mesquite grass, yield
ing to the breath of the gentle south
wind, rolled in vast billows of ver
dure under the ardent summer sun.
Little ' islands ' of mesquite trees dot
ted this grassy sea, and herds of buf
falo and deer grazed in peaceful igno
rance of an enemy s approach, r or-
getting hunger, fatigue and evenAwon to writs, notices, or precepts lor
thirst, in this delicious vision, the red
men fell upon their knees and cried
out: 'Tehas ! Tehas ! Tehas' is the
nearest approach in English to the
correct pronunciation of TeAs, and
it means so the narrator explains
Origin or Tariff.
St. Louis Railway Journal.
The first tariff ever imposed was in
178u. The colonies along the Atlantic
sea-board prior to this collected cus
toms duties, and selling imports thus
taxed to 'those of the interior were
enabled to make these interior popu
lations pay the cost of governing the
coast-line populations, the latter hard
ly feeling the burdens of government.
The union was created that the cen
tral government, for the equal advan
tage of all the states, might collect
revenues for the common purposes
of all. In the preamble to the tariff
act of 1789 it is written 'that
"for the encouragement and pro
tection of manufactures, du
ties shall be levied upon goods, wares
and merchandise imported," etc. TThe
first tariff averaged 8J per cent,
with 5 per cent on cottons, 'and 1
per cent on iron and steel. The pro
tected class evidently liked the dou
ceurs given by central power, and in
1790 the average rate of duties was
per cent, with still 1 per cent
on iron and steel, and 5 per cent on
woolens, and a rise to 1 per cent on
cotton. These are the tariffs of whose
"happy effects" Washington spoke.
Why not t est the effects of such a tariff
to-day? We believe that every true
and honest patriot like Washington
could approve it. A revenue tariff is
a protective tariff; but a protective
tariff loses its character and its virtue
as au agency for the production or
revenue and assumes- every guise of
robbery and wrong. . Industries that
only asked for 8, or at most 10 per
cent as a donation from the people,
now pampered and spoiled, demand
40 and 50 and even 80 per cent; and
such is their combined strength, and
such the bribes they "proffer; either in
money or local irilluence to which
Congressmen owe elevation to otlice,
that these protected industries are
omnipotent in legislation and the
plundered people voiceless,
The Railways of the World.
The lines of railways in the five
divisions of the earth cost, in round
numbers, $16,000,000,000; and would,
according to Baron Kolb, reach eight
times round the globe, although it is
but little over half a century since
the first railway worked by steam
was opened between Darlington and
Stockton, September 27, 1825, and be
tween Manchester and Liverpool Sep
tember 15, 1830. ' It is shown that in
France, previous to the. existence
of railways, there was one
passenger in every 35,000
killed, and one out of every 30,000
wounded; whereas, between 1835 and
1S75, there was but one in 5,178,000
killed, and one in 580,450 wounded; so
that we may infer that the tendency
to accidents is yearly diminishing.
Railway travelling in England is at
tended with greater risk than in any
other country in Europe. A French
statistician observes that, if a person
were to live continually in a railway
carriage, and spend all his time in
railway traveling, the chances of his
dying from a railway accident would
not occur till he was 900 years old.
Rescued from Death.
William J. Ccughlin, of Somervillei
Mass., says: "In the" fall of 18761
was taken with bleeding of the lungs,
followed by a severe cough. I lost
my appetite and flesh and was con
lined to my bed. In -1877 I was ad
mitted .to the hospital. The doctors
said I hail a hole in my lung as big as
a half dollar. At one time a report
was around that 1 was dead. 1 gave
up hope, but a friend told me ot Dr.
William Hall's Balsam for the lungs.
I got a bottle, when to mysurpriseI
commenced to feel better, and to-day
i ieei pettier tnan ior tnree years past.
"I write this hoping everyone af
flicted with diseased lungs will take
Dr. William Hall's Balsam, and be
convinced that consumption can be
cured. I can positively say it has
done more good than all the other
medicines I have taken since my sick
ness." -
Of the 2W,000 Indians in the United

ors than the beneficiaries of the trust

A popular Parisian singer as she en
tered the theatre on a recent evening
received from the doorkeeper a bundle
which provoked great merriment
when she opened it in the green-room.
It contained a roa ited chicken with a
note from an ardent admirer begging
that she I would send her portrait and
something belonging to her which
she held to be precious" to a given ad
dress. As the lady happens to be
married, her husband undertook to
cool the ardor of her correspondent by
a reply which ran thus: "Sir, as my
wife is busy dressing her last baby (a
girL dear sir,) she requests me to
answer your note and send you my
portrait, her husband being, she as
sures me, what she deems most
precious at least, at present. With
regard to her photograph you will find
that at Nadar's, and I may tell you
that the renowned photographer
makes a great reduction when large
quantities are taken. And, finally,
my daughter being about six months
old, you might a little later on, in
transferring to the child the great
love you express for the mother, be
come my son-in-law. "Who knows?
Yours, truly, X ."
Through kindness of Dr. R. J.
Brackenridge we are permitted to
publish the following extract from a
etter written to him by Mr. J. C.
Howard, now in Mexico. It gives a
good insight into the Mexican char
acter: State of Coahuila, Mexico,
Camp 25 Miles South of
.Nava, April 5, 1883.)
I like Mexico, and I am trying to
learn the language. Tliiuk 1 will suc
ceed. The people, on lirst beholding
them, are very curious about many
things, "rather shy," ignorant, la:'.y
and dirty, und as stubborn as a kick
ing mule.
Their mode of living, agriculture
tnd business habits date back live
hundred years before Moses sailed in
his ship. Their adobe houses are
primitive. One room answers all pur
poses of kitchen, dining room, bed
room, parlor and study. This house
is ornamented with no chimney; a
hole in the center for a cooking range;
only one opening in the house, the
door, shut and opened as light is de
manded or excluded, or venti
lation; no furniture; and mother
earth fcr car ret and chair.
Strange, but true, ytt hard on the la
dies, they call the pig their mock
ing bird, and caress it and have it in
their room. This is about all that
adorns their home. Generally, a man
and his wife, two mothers-in-law, a
father, six cousins, fourteen aunts
and from twelve to twenty-
four children, live in this adobe room
8x10, and all are as happy, if not hap
pier, than jay Gould or any banker,
still, with all this drawback, the
people are very easily handled, if you
treat them gently and with Kindness.
They are hospitable to a fault, and no
end to their talk; and when you get
their confidence they will hug and kiss
you au over. And then you will tall
into another extreme of not knowing
how to get rid ot them, or getting
them to do anything like business or
work, without insulting them.
There are no national banks here.
Every one is his own banker; and
when you owe a dollar to any of those
bankers he wants it deposited in his
own bank every night. And while
there is any money in his bank he
will not work; it makes no difference
what you otter or the profats.
Money commands an exorbitant
usuiy for legitimate interest here.
When they are broke and want
money, or gamble or drink moskal,
they will offer you five hundred per
cent and give collateral security or
mortgage themselves to you,
then they are peoned, and have
to work till . you are paid.
But they very seldom get out of
debt, for they will' buy and borrow
as long as you will let them. It you
invite them to eat with you or stay
over night, they will always accept
and will kill you with kindness and
thanks, extol your generosity ana vir
tue to all their friends, and send them
to eat and sleep with you and thank
you likewise. They do not work
much when they are their own bosses
never in a hurry; never care whether
bank closes at 3 or not; never care
whether note is protested or not
never think of to-morrow; follow
scripture to the dot, thinking the evil
ot the present sufficient.
Their chief glory is to let God and
nature provide fcr them bask in the
sunshine, talk about the political sit
uation of their country and raise
children to make soldiers to defend it
or create a revolution. Oh, it is in
deed the land of God and liberty
This section about here is very fertile,
dotted with little towns independent
of rain and dry weather, for God has
abundantly provided water in natund
streams and ditches tor irrigation,
The streams run on the sides of
mountains, you only have to tap
them and water your laniL
A stream runs close to the towns
of Nava, St. Juan Allenda, More-
las, and other towns, and
settlements, that feed them with all
the water they want and oceans to
spare; and millions of acres of beauti
ful, verdant land just crying to let
this water run into it and raise corn
and produce for the hungry. But no
a Mexican is satisfied with an acre in
town, just enough to keep him from
starving and biisk with his canary
bird in the sunshine ot laziness.
Oh, capital 1 come here and open
this up; double yourself a hundred
fold in five years. For a grazing
country this part can not be
excelled by any land in Texas that
have seen. Right here is fine mineral
and the finest building sandstone that
ever man laid eyes on, any thickness
you want it. les indeed, this is i
lovely country. No wonder the Mexi
cans love every one who smiles on
them. No wonder the love of twenty
tour children blesses the parlor ot
pair of doves that live in an 8 by 10
room, an acre ot land to teed them on
"they want no more land," and the
pure air of Liberty to breathe. Even
I have got lovely myself since I came
here, and if you could just hear me
talking Mexican, you would laugh.

Mr. D. says: 'For many years I have suf.
f ered, intensely at times, with what is general
Iy called rheumatism. When first attacked
was conllneu to my bed and could not walk a
step. I could not bear the weight of the bed
clothes, so excruciating was the agony I en
dured. I always noticed that before these at.
tacks came on my kidneys were affected ; be
fore there would be any pain in my limbs or
any swelling of joints or limbs, the color of the
secretions from the kidneys would be very
dark and the odor strong aud feverish. The
last attack was very severr, about five years
ago, and I was confined to the house several
weeks, and was unable to attend to business
in three mouths. During tho time I was con
fined at home and the time of my convales
cence I employed four of the best doctors that
I could obtain, but none of them gave me pc
maneut relief, for they did not go to work at
the cause of the trouble. Having' been ac
miainted with the proprietor of Hunt's Reme
dv akmz time I was induced bv biin to irive il
a trial, hoping that it might reach the seat of
the disease: and alter taking one bottle I
found myself very much improved, and after
aKing me second i was ieeiing better tnau
had after any previous attacks, JJuriug many
months previous to taking the Remedy my
hands and fingers would be much swollen and
stiff tvery morning; my left side, in the re
gion oi uie siouiacn ana spieen, was very lame
and sensitive; at times I would be taken with
severe cramps over the spleen, and be obliged
to apply mustara or cayenne ior temporary
relief; f was very nervous nignts and could
noi sleep; i was oongea lo oe very particular
in my diet, and my physical system was sailly
detnoralized. Since I have taken Hunt's Rem
edy systematically ah - these things have
changed; I have no swollen hands or limbs,
no pains or cramps iu the side, can eat all
kinds of food, sleep soundly and get thorough
ly rested, aud my kidneys are active and per
forin their functions promptly, thus taking
out of the system all the poisonons secretions
wliich contaminate tho whole system where
the kidneys do not act efficiently. My friends,
what Hunt's Remedy has done for me it will
do for all of you. I believe it to be the only
sure cure for all diseases of the Kidneys, Liv
er, and Urinary organs. Respectfully,
