Two Croli for All Letters.
The I'resident's views concerning
the reduction of the rate of postage to
two cents are firmly expressed. His ar
guments in favor of.the reduction are the
same as have already been repeatedly
urged by the advocates of the lower
rate. But nothing will be lost by again
calling the attention of the law-makers
to the fact that the revenue of the
Post Office Department Is steadily
growing, and that there is now a sur
plus in the hand* of the postmastei
general, but that the policy of the Gov
ernment has never been to treat the
postal service as a source of
income; that domestic letters
have been less favorably Jconsid
ered in all schemes for the reduction of
postage than any other class of mail
matter; that although the reduction of
rates on former occasions has been fol
lowed by a deficiency in the accounts
of the department, the growth in
bulk of business has soon madegood the
loss; and that experience has confirmed
the strength of thejprediction that a re
duction of letter rates would be a stimu
to sealed correspondence, and so in
crease the volume of letters as compar
ed with postal cards and open circulars.
The country can well afford to pay
higher rates on merchandise matter, if
it be found necessary to establish them
in order to cover the possible deficiency
accruing through the reduction of let
ter rates. But It is not clearly apparent
that advanced rates on any class of
matter will be demanded. If the esti
mate that $3,000,000 will cover the de
ficiency in the first year of tne establish
ment of a twocent letter rate be based
on reasonable premises, it is quite as
fair to assume, on the same premises,
that the subsequent deficiencies would
grow small by degrees, and finally dis
appear in, sav, four years, without any
addition to the tax for the carriage of
matter in any other class.

A THEATRICAL KILLER'S ADVERTISE*
Special Corretpondenet of the Sunday Register,
Cucikwatl, December 8, 1882.-Thare
are few people within the range ,o€,
tbe circulation ol the Cincinnati newspa
per* who have not heard of Longworth
street. It is named after one of the wealth
iest and mc*t diatinguUhed families of this
city—the father of one of the Judges of the
Supreme Court of Ohio; but It is probably
the moat disreputable thoroughfare,
for four squares, in the whole corporation.
The efforts pending in the City Council to
change its name, or at least to give a part
of it a new name, makes it a subject of
journalism. Longworth street runs west
from Vine street, between and parallel with
Fifth and Sixth streets. From Vine street
to Central Avenue (four squares) it is the
abode of sin. West of Central Avenue it is
inhabited by resectable people, and the y
are anxious to be known as residents of
Carlisle Avenue, leaving the old name
Longworth to the tainted portion of the
Btreet Let us take a trip through this
Hala A venae of Defc»«cfc«rjr,
any time after night fall, and see why the
dangers of the further western souares
want a change. Starting in at the Grand
Opera House the street is so narrow that it
might be mistaken for a wide alley. The
buildings run back a considerable distance
on this square. Passing the stage door of
the theatre vou come to several buildings
on the north side which have a respectable
club house look about them; on the west
side are two or three billiard rooms and
restaurants of the cheap variety, and two
or three windows with red curtains, in
evitably marking places of prostitution.
Tbe Crevier CluUbuildiug, a new and very
handsome establishment, is the redeeming
feature of the square. The Club is one of
the largest and most' respectable in town,
and it is not easy to understand why such
a location was selected. _ Wepass on to the
next square, which at night is dark and dis
mal enough, unless the moon should be
uncommonly resplendent. It is made up
mainly of cheap boarding houses, low bor
dellos, and apartment houses occupied by
street walkers. The saloon element is not
without representation. We have now
reached Elm street. Here Longworth
street widens,and from Elm west two-thirds
of a square it is semi-respectable. As you
come near Plum street, however, you en- j
counter a nest which would disgrace Buck
town. Lewd women stand boluly on the
sidewalk in groups of half a dozen or more,
and oj>enly solicit passers-by to accompany
them to their rooms in the buildings
in front of which they put themselves up
M auction, or in the adjacent alleys. The
movements of the police are closely
watched, and when a copper approaches
soiuebodv fires the signal, and the misera
ble prostitutes disappear in their dives.
Now we cross Hum street, and encounter
scarcely anything but
Den* of Iniquity
till we reach Central avenue. The monot
onous wickedness of the square is relieved
by one or two stables on one side, and the
establishment of a colored artist in white
wash on the other. Nearly all grades of
houses of prostitution may be found on
both sides of the street. There are several
mansion-like buildings which are said to be
conducted on high-pressure principles, but
there are more places where the shameless
women stand in the front door-ways, or
throw their angling lines from the win
dows, aavertising their business to every
body who may pass that way, excepting po
licemen. A woman recklessly displaying
the rullled and embroidered edges of her
underskirts, and wearing low slippers that
reveal artistic designs in stockings, is more
enticing to the man of animal inclinations
than tbe abandoned female who poses in
the statuary tableaux in the variety the
atres. in nothing but tights and a scanty
Eiece of illusion goods bound around her
ips. The Longworth street women study
closely the eHect of "white goods," so to
speak. They appear at their street doors
in raiment "which, technically speaking,
"passes muster'' as attire proper for public
display, but which in reality is more sug
gestive of being bulf dressed. About half of
the doors on the very wicked square I have
described, display the white flag, as it were,
throughout the night. In warm and cold
weather alike, the brutal landladies keep
their half-dressed girls standing in front as
signs, changing them, possibly, as fre
quently as captives are taken in, or as the
meteorological rigors compel. Longworth
street, in short, is so dreadfully notorious
that the many decent people on the street
have a positive right to mire. They know
that there is something in a name.
Frnyne*« Frolic.
Yon have, of course, long since had the
particulars of the shooting of the actress
Annie Von liehrens by Frank Frayne, the
sensational actor. Frayne does the ancient
William Tell business", shooting an apple
from a woman's head. At the Thanksgiv
ing matinee at the Coliseum he shot a lit
tle low, and plumped a bullet through
Miss Von liehren's brain, killing her almost
instantly. The, printed accounts of the
affair have been made up largely of
gush and mush. The accident, as it un
doubtedly was, is said to have grown out of
an undiscovered defect in the gun, though
there have been rumors that Frayne's aim
had become uncertain on account of im
paired eyesight. Frayne was arrested, and
after an examination discharged. About
the only ground upon which he could have
been held was a violation of the law in
pointing fire-arms at people, but his at
torney adroitly put it that the gun was not
pointed at Miss Von Behrens, but at the
apple which was raised to a point about six
inches above her head by means of high
hair dressing and a high gap. Frayne
probably could not have been legally held,
out there was an unnecessary quantity of
dogberry gush about his discharge. Frayne
was represented to be broken aowa with
grief, but I have the truth from people who
saw him in the privacy of his room, and
who testify that his extraordinary exhibi
tions of sorrow was merely "acting up."
He talked with shocking abandon about re
suming business, and was really not much
moved. It is reasonable to suppose that he
was comparatively indifferent. A sordid
wretch wno will endanger the life of a wo
man eight times a week for mere pay, has
not the common humane feelings. The
Legislature of Ohio should Dass a law pro
viding for "railroading" such people to Co
lumbus.
Jimmy O'Xelll.
the man who took the part of Christ when
the I'assion Play was produced in 8an Fran
cisco, has been playing in Cincinnati this
week in "An American King" and a ''Cele
brated Case." Jimmy used to be a boy
in Cincinnati, and is said to have been a
very "tough citizen"—so tough, indeed,
that I hesitate to tell how much of a "sky
larker" it was who essayed the role of the
Savior. 1 had a talk with Jimmy the other
night. He is a genteel looking, rather ac
complished man with an unmistakable mi
lesian cast of countenance. He is still en
thusiastic on the Passion Play, and regards
.Salmi Morse's scheme as practicable and
proper.

Portland (Me.) Preu.
There is a man in this city who - is con
siderably given to speculation; goes out
into the country and buys a few car loads
of potatoes or anything else that he thinks
he can tum to advantage. The other day
he gathered together every cash dollar he
bad, and borrowed all the spare money that
a merchant friend of his had, the whole
aggregating quite a large sum of money,
with a view to a speculative trip with
plenty- That night he was venr careful to
sea that all the doors and windows in the
bonse were securely fastened. When he
arom in the morning he threw up the win
dow to see if the milkman had got around
when, much to his horror, his ayes lit upon
his pocket-book in the grass near the gar
den walk. The first idea was that it had
been stolen, rifled, and thrown there. He
rushed down-stairs, and much to his joy
found the pocket-book all safe, with con
tents intact It seems that he had stepped
into the garden the previous evening to
get a plant, and in stooping the wallet

and amusing sights. A big Vesey street
tea store has a perch above its windows,
on which flatters a snow-white cocka
too. which screams so loudly that It can
be heard a block away. Its tones never
fail to draw a crowd. A Nassau street
cigar dealer displays in bis window a
long ladder made of a single copy of a
morning newspaper, without any join
* tog" work or pake. Passers-by examine
it curiously, "andlaugh at the sign be
neath reading: "If you can't make
one like it, what you can do is—smoke
our cigars." A Sixth avenue jeweler
exhibits a Malacca cane with a head
consisting of an open-laced, stem-wind
ing silver watch. There is always a
crowd in front of tbe window looking
at the ticking cane. A Third avenue
egg and butter dealer has a hen and
brood of chickens in his show window,
picking among the fresh eggs. A
Broadway liquor-dealer has a lot of
prairie chickens in his window. A
Third avenue liquor-dealer has an
American eagle in his window, and a
Broadway liquor-dealer keeps a pair of
beautiful Maltese cats shut up in bis
show window. A Hixth avenue bird
fancier has a parrot which whistles
tunes and can speak over a hundred
different sentences distinctly. The
dealer says the parrot is worth a day
to him as an advertisement.
An up-town bootblack has a trained
dog that will splash mad over pedestri
ans' boots.
A Fourteenth street tailor has hung
un in his window a string of curiosities.
The bottom of the string suspends what
looks like a bunch of gray cotton bat
ting. Above it hangs something that
resembles a cloth soup tureen. Further
above is a sort of Aladdin's lamp made
of black cloth. The apex of this pyra
mid of curiosities is a kind of hlack
cloth bowl, with gaudy brass orna
ments. Lest tbe spectator should not
know what to make of the lot, the
dealer has hung out a sign. "The new
regulation army helmet in the various
stages of its manufacture."
A Brooklyn cigar-dealer has an In
dian leaning on a gun in his show win
dow. The Indian and the gun are made
entirely ©f real cigars. J* ear by and
other cigar-dealers attract attention by
means of a comical wooden figure. It
represents a young man sitting on a box,
with his hands supporting his chin, and
his arras firmly braced on his knees.
He is drawing with might and main on
a desperate looking cigar. On the back
of his neck is a big plaster. At the
feet of the figure is a placard reading
"We don't sell this kind of a cigar.
Come in and see." A Fulton street
cigar-dealer draws a crowd about his
door by displaying original sketches of
public men and events drawn with
colored chalk on a huge sheet of brown
paper.
PruKrcftMlve Farmer*.
The true farmer does not stop to
count the cost of improvement, lor his
reason prompts him to believe that he
cannot go wrong by endeavoring to im
prove. Every acre of his farm is culti
vated to its highest capacity, and his
soil never deteriorates in quality. He
rotates his crops with a view to iuerease
fertility, and he estimates hi9 profits by
the amount of expenses entailed in se
curing that profit. The failure to
realize immediate results does not dis
courage him, for be knows that through
his judicious system of cultivation, the
realization is but deferred for a little
while longer. He farms for profit and
he spends for profit. He knows noth
in of stinted economy, which saves to
day and robs to-morrow. The farm is
his bank, his workshop and his occupa
tion, no stone being left unturned, and
no j>ortion slighted at the cost ofauoth
er part.
A good larms means gooa siock. 1 ne
squealing bog has no place on it, but
must he superseded bythequiet thor
oughbreds. Tlie tangle-fleeced, small
carcassed sheep cannot be allowed
where only the Merino, the Cotawold,
and the Oxford Down are adapted.
The scraggy bovines of the past are
seen no more, for the deep milking
Holstein, the cream-giving Jersey, ana
the beef-producing Hereford have oc
cupied their places. The thoroughbred
and the Clydesdale plow the fields that
formerly yielded to the wind-broken
plugs, and the wagons and imple
mi 111 s are of the most approved labor
saving patterns. All this means capi
tal, and is expensive; but when we con
sider the fact that it costs no more to
keep the best than the bad, and that
expense means profit in the end, the
cost is not so formidable as it seems.
Hut the manure heap is the most
important of all. A good farmer can
be selected by the manner in which he
keeps bis manure. The manure is the
wealth—the bank on which the cheque
is drawn— and it is imprudent to neg
lect it. Drenching rains and scorching
suns carry upward and downward the
soluble and vilatile constituents of the
unprotected heap, and often great
ditches are dug to allow the black liq
uid riches to pass of! and away forever.
But the good farmer works differently.
He makes his manure flne, attends
personally to the process of decompo
sition, protects it from the weather,
and endeavors to make it a ready food
for the crops when hauled to the fields.
Farming pays well—to good farmers. \
Marling a Yonng Hub.
Wall Strcrt New*.
It is related ofa wealthy Pbiladelphian
who been dead these many years
that a young man came to him one day
and asked for help to start in business.
"I)o you drink?" inquired the million
aire.
"Occasionally."
"Stop- it! Stop it for a yaar and then
come and see me."
The young man broke off the habit at
once, and at the end of a year again
presented himself.
"Yes, now and then."
"Stop it! Stop it for a year and then
come and see me."
The young man went away and cut
loose from tne habit, and after worrying
through another twelve months once
more faced the philanthropist.
"Do you chew?"
"Yes."
"Stop it! Stop it for a year and then
come and see me."
But the young man never called
again. When some one asked why
be didn't make one more effort be re
plied:
"Didn't I know what he was driving
at? He'd have told me that as I bad
stopped chewing, drinking and smok
ing I must have saved enough money to
start mysel/."

"If you would be truly happy, my
dear," said one New York lady to an
other, "you will have neither eyes nor
ears when your husband comes borne
late from the club."
"Yes, I know," answered the other,
wearily, "but what am I to do with my
nose?"—Philadelphia New*.
