THE WEST VIRGIMA ARGIS.
Entered at the noKtofliee at K logwood as aocoDd-clans mail matter m mm CLAY ii' i»i , - Etltur. KING WOOD, - JANUAUY -0, !8*7. ! The State press speak of Pied mont's newly elected Mayor, P. S. Hyde, as a mugwump. Mistake! lie’s a Democrat, aud Democrats are not mugwumps, and don’t you forget it. Says the New York World: ‘‘The post-office at Liberty, W. Ya , lias been discontinued. Mail is now sent to Paradice.” This rcfnarkaldc item of current mws speaks well for the present Administration. Its Repub lican predecessors had no such mail connections. The Weston Republican, in speak* ing of W. W. Brannon, says, ‘‘The inscription over his political tomb is Sic semjtcr tyrrannus ” The orthorgrnphy of tho above Latin quotation is pretty hard on the tyrrant, and no doubt Brannon will be tnad enough to kick himself all over Weston. Mr Siiaw, of Barbour, has intro duced House Bill No. 51, to re-ar range the 3rd, 12 and 13th Judicial Circuits. Synopsis.—As follows: Third District counties of Barbour, Kan d >lph, Taylor and Tucker; Twelfth, Grant. Hardy, Hampshire, Pendle ton and Preston; Thirteenth, Jeffer son, Berkeley, Mineral and Morgan. Gen. W. B. Hazbn, the head officer of the U. S. Signal Service, died in Washington last Saturday evening at 8 o’clock, in the 57th year of his age. Since his gradua tion at the U. S. Military Academy in June, 1855, he has been constant ly in the employ of the government both in peace and in war. He rend ered very valuable services to his country during the Civil war, as a general, and has been in high favor with the military authorities ever since the close of that ever-memor able conflict- lie died in the milita ry service of his country, without a defined blot upon his memory. Requtescnt in pace. The following very sensible re marks on the subject of foreign im migration we clip from the Kanawha Gazette: “The problem of foreign immigra tion to this country is one of the most s :rious ones that confront the people of this country to-day. Almost every ship that arrives as an American port Is loaded down with immigrants. The most of the public land, the inheri tince of the American people, has al ready been taken up by them. In a few years, if the present condition of things is permitted to continue, the last acre will be appropriated by them. Thus the American people are pursu ing a policy that gives to tire foreign er what ought to be kept for their own posterity. The children of the rising generation will be strangers in their own land, that which should have been sacredly held for them, hiving been bestowed upon people of o-her lands.” Ht-nufor Kciiiih. “ I have had some experience with S inator Kanna within tiie last year, together with what I have observed, that has convinced me that he is a rare exception in Washington, when one hae to depend upon promises, Kenna always says "No,” and ‘Yes' at the proper time, and does not ap pear to higgle over it. If he makes you a promise, you can depend upon it that that promise is going lo Ik* fulfilled. If he says he can not, or does not want to do anything for you, you might as well try to swim Niag ara as to try to persuade him to do (L He is most always right, and sel dom makes up his mind until he knows that he Is doing what he is con vinced is right, I am told by those who arc close to him that he always not only expect* the same treatment but requires it on the part of those who want him to serve them. If he is once deceived, the one practicing the deception might ns well give up all hope* of sucses* if he is depend ing upon Kenna for it. It is said that there is ncthing that he despises more in an individual than duplicity and double dealing. He is certainly one of the most frank and truthful politicians that I have ever known, and during a residence in Washing ton city for a half dozen years, I be lleve that I have had enough ex perience with public men to enable mo to size up a real good man, Kenna * measure has been taken and be has not been found wanting. [Washington Corrcsjtondent Wheeling Register, A hill will be introduced in tlic Legislature at at early day provid ing for the attendance of the youth of the State upon the public schools, the ! proposed measure being of great im- j portance to every eitizen. The first section of the bill pro- 1 vidcs that all youth between tLe ages of 8 and 14 years shall attend the public schools provided in their re spective school district during the whole of the term for which said school shall be kept open. The second section pnn i les that it shall be lawful foranvboch person to remain away from school during any period in which he may be unfit for attendance l y reason of disease, and during such time as he may be jn attendance upon a private school. - » -- \o 14* it | Coai to in |» t * it bon I (•ilison. A special to the Wheeling Register says: Kustace (iibson is one of the most presistent placehunters in Con gress. He never tires in criticising the policy of the administration in keeping Republicans in ofliee. He has no hesitancy in telling those al ready in, what he thinks of what he styles their cawardicc. lie seems to thrive on this subject. He has, however, secured more appointments such as they are, than all the other West Virginia Democrats combined. It seems to be a fact that those who abuse the mugwump policy’ of some of the officials, get more considera lion at their hands Ilian those who profess (lut who are not sincere), to support every act of the administra tion. Gibson nev9r bears of a prob able vacancy, where the slightest probability of geting a West Virgin ian in is manifested, but that he does not at once start alter it. If all Democrats were so presistent in be half ot their constituents as Mr. Gibson, there is no doubt but that there would be more of them in office i than there are. Say what you mat’ about Mr. Gibson, no one can ever accuse him of neglecting the interests of any one of his constituents- lie has been, and is yet, a hard worker. He leaves no stone unturned to serve them. Gibson has faults, but among them cannot be charged ingratitude or indifference. Fiftiruii.

I rnn neruM ono of these men with nn ; idea the other tiny. Ho is n mi'ldle aged Qernmn nml he lives on Vanderbilt avenue. A few years ago he was a very ordinary fellow, drudging away at a trade, with the prospect of always being poor and a drudge. That was what his neighbors thought of him. Hut, while he was pounding away he emulated the example of the widow’s famous cow, “didn’t say much, but kept up a divvil of a thlukin’." One day he got up from his beuch (I think it was a Itcnch, though it might have been a tailor's table or a butcher's block; anyhow, the plodding German knocked off from Ills trade) nml he went mitT of the shop with an idea. His friends noticed no change in their plodding neighlsir. If they noticed him at all, it was to reflect what a hopeless drudge of a German be was. Meanwhile, he went right ahead with his idea. Then some of his friends discovered that he did not cotne back to his bench. That worried them a little. A few weeks later they observed that ho went over to New York every day nnd was beginning to dress better ami spruce up a bit. That really gave them a great deal of concern. The next thing they took note of was that the petty German tradesman had begun to build a new house. Then they were terribly cut up. Finally the whole thing c ame out. The Vanderbilt nveiuie German's Idea was simple enough, but it lias already made him rich nnd the money keeps coming in. Ills Idea originated the small cnnlboard signs, with vario lated letters upon them, seen around the walls of every popular restaurant. Tho letters look like letters cut out of wall paper. At llrst they wore. Then tho German thought of un improvement niul lie tried making the letters of prettily figured calico. That gave tho little signs greater durability, nnd as he had prepared a glue especially adapted to sticking on the letters, ft struck him to npply for a patent. simple ns was tiio whole (lung, lie got Ills patent. It baa filled hJs purse and lifted him out of tho life of a drudge.114| Not only in every popular restaurant in Brooklyn arc these attractive little sigus I to ho found, announcing specialties on the hill of fare each day, and thus making I the demand constant, hut in many bar rooms, drug stores, waiting rooms, hotel corridors, o dices and scores of other places they serve a diversity of purposes. From Brooklyn and New York restau rants the popularity of t lie variegated card signs extended to other cities, until now the little signs are in common uso as far east as Boston and as far we it as Chi cago. Remounts of cloth are used in making the letters, and the cost is, there fore, very light. The demand hns licon something tremendous, and tho plodding German tradesman of Vanderbilt avenuo I has risen to the dignity of a solid business man, with his ofTlco In New York, his family in a new house and prosperity all around him.—Brooklyn Fugle. Purla as a Clean City. Paris is a very clean city as to the con- j dition of her streets. It is too clean, almost, for tho continual use of the hy drant and broom to keep everything fresh und free from dust makes more mud than is agreeable to ladies with trailing skirts, and tho critical Parisian lias every right to find fault with the compara tively filthy csfhdition of Now York. Yet there is one thing that cannot be over looked—that certaiu seasons of the year, and at certain hours of the day, even the best neighborhoods of Paris are ill smell ing to a degreo never attained by tho courtyard of a Cherry street tenement house.

The word cornus from the Latin umbra, which means a shade, but the name, most probably, was Introduced into the English language from the Ital ian word ombrella. Parasol means “to ward off the sun,” nnd another pretty name, not much used by Americans for a small parasol, Is “parasolette.” The umbrella, in oriental countries, is a very ancient and primitive sybmol of royal authority. The “crown” is but thp fur cap of northern races, adorned with gold and Jewels. The umbrella traces its descent to the primeval ancestry of the tropical forest; the gigantic leaves of the palms are its prototype. Hut it is only in very recept times that tbo ombrella has been con verted into tbo pnrapHlie. Those of our readers who have read "Robinson Cru soe. ” remember how he made his um brella and covered It with skins. Then 1 there huvo been umbrellas covered with i large feathers tlmt would shed rain like a 1 “duck's back," nnd umbrellas with coverings of oil /Joth. of straw, of paper, or woolen stuff*, until pnw nearly all umbrellas are covered either with /*Jlk, alpaca, nr gingham.—Hrooklyn Kagle.'

When Ole Hull, the renowned violin* 1st, was staying iu Paris, in 1»10, lie re turned home late one evening from a concert, nud as tho night was cold ho or dered Ids man to make n fire in the room. The latter dragged toward the fireplace n huge l>ox, on which the word “Fire wood” was painted in large letters. In answer to Ole Hull’s astonished inquiry the servant told him that the box had been delivered that day at noon by hid master s orders, as ho thought. On being broken open the box was found to contain twenty-two violins and tlie following letter: “Great Master— Tho undersigned, being members of various amateur philharmonic societies, hereby declare that they will henceforth cease to perform on the accompanying in struments. Tho same wood from which Ole Hull can draw life, love, sorrow, pas sion and melody, is only to bo regarded a*—fuel for the flames in tho bunds of tlie undersigned, who therefore request the maestro to make an uuto-dn-fe of the inclosurcs, and to look upon the ascend ing smoke as incense offered to Ids genius by Ids penitent dabblers iu tho noble art.” This curious epistle bore the sig natures of twenty-two young men. Three days afterward Ole Hull gave a dinner, to which he invited all the send ers of tlie valuable “firewood.” Each guest had lying before him on tho table one of tho violins referred to, and by its side n gold ring with tho inscription, “Solitudeand Perseverance”—a piece of seasonable advice to the faint hearted dilettante, and a symbolic indication of the means by which the virtuoso himself had attained to fame.—Tagliehe ltumU chau. The Suit Mountain of rnlmtlne. Palestine possesses u rcnmrkablo salt mountain situated at tho south end of the Dead sen. The length of the ridge Is six miles, with an average width of three quarters of a mile, and the height is not far from fitM> feet. There are places where the overlying earthy deposits /ire many feet in thickness, but the mass of tlio mountain is composed of solid rock snlt, some of which is ns clear ns crystal. How far this deposit of snlt extends below tho surface of the ground, no one at present knows. At some points, this ridge, which is on the shore of tho Deud sea, ap proaches very close to tho water, anil at others it recedes until it is fifty or more yards from it. Just hero the'wnter of the Dead sea is much more salt than it is at the north end, where the Jordan enters the lake. I his h/ilt is a government monopoly. The same is true of the salt that is con tained in solution in the Dead sea itself. If Arabs or the natives of the country were found getting salt from the shores of the Dead sea or from this suit moun tain, they would be arrested at once. Most of the salt used in Hebron, Jerusa lem, and elsewhere in this part of pules tiine, comes from these sources, but it is gathered under tho direction of govern ment oillcers, nml tho revenue is sup posed to go to the government.—United States Consul Merrill in Scientific Ameri can. ltlmiinrck and His Hells. Apropos of the man of blood and iron, a characteristic anecdote is being told Just now. When a younger ami less known man, ho one autumn secured a suite of rooms without first inspecting them. On Installing himself in them, he at once noticed that there was no hell in the apartment which lie made Ida study ami work room, anil sending for t lie land lord he asked him to supply tho omis sion. “lint,” returned the landlord, “Herr Von lllsmnrck 1ms already taken the rooms the way they are, and it is ho who must supply any deficiencies which may seem lo him to exist.” “Oh, that is your answer, is it?” inquired tho chan cellor. “Precisely so.” answered his host us he retired with a low how. Scarcely live minutes later the sharp, short sound of a pistol shot was heard in the chancellor’s room, and just ns the landlord rushed breathless into the apart ment. JMsmarck, raising his hand, fired ofT the revolver Mint was in it a second time, point Idank at the opposite wall. “Oh, it s all right, landlord,” ho said, turning to the amazed man; “I'm only letting my servant know that I want him.” lie fore the sun set that day a bell hanger had hastily but effectually sup plied Herr Von Ilismarek’s apartments with the bells that had been lurking.— London Figaro.
