II is hard to realise that I hi* "fanny man" s offers from all the ill» of ordinary and «erioua mortals. To morrow, we are reminded by the New York £»rstay PM, will be the anni versary of the beginning ot regular steam navigation between this conn try and En rope fifty years ago. Tb« Serins and the Great Western arrived in New York har bor April '33, 1838, within a few boon of each other, the Sirius having sailed from Cork and the Great Western from Liver pool, making the parage in fifteen day*. The steamship Savannah had previously crossed the ocean in twenty-one days firm Savannah to Liverpool. A New York scientist thinks that the ooaaing weapon of civilised warfare will not be the explosive bullet, but a chemical one, something after the character oi the suggestion of Wcmon, the electrician. He suggests the use of nitrate of amyl, which possesses the power of causing in sensibility very quickly to a ha man being breathing its fumes. An exchsnge says on the *ubjact: "It is cheep and plentiful, and could be used instead of gunpowder. A few gallons of this nitrate dashed on the deck of a war ship would soon render her crew helpless. The most powerful iron clads would be evsn mors vulnerable than the light cruisers, for they would be suck ing down grest draught* ot air through their artiticial ventilators, and the odor would thus rapidly permeate the whole ship. The whole crew being rendered helpless for an hour or two, the ship conld of coarse, be towed into a safe spot, while th« captors ventilated ber and removed the insensible men." A NKW BALLOT LAW. Milwaukee is experimenting with a new ballot law, and the tins! election held un der it showed that it worked very success fully. It is not so comprehensire as the measures proposed tor New York, Massa chusetts and other States, bnt the Milwau k«se election offered the first practical teat of the application of the principle of bal lot distribution by the State. The law under which the election was held pro video that voters receive their ballots from sworn State election officers. Only one voter at a time is allowed in the room in which these officers are, and no crowd is allowed to collect within one hundred feet of the polling places. Of the recent elec tion in Milwaukee the Sentinel, of that city, stys : Tue .«y etc ni of voting in Milwaukee has proved a decided advantage over that which formerly prevailed. Under the old system, with such an issue a* divided par ties on Tuesday, there would have inevi tably been more or 1ms trouble at the poll* Voters would have been kept from the polls by intimidation, there would have been knock-downs and broken heads. All this was avoided by the arrangement that allowed «ach voter to select his ballot wi.boat interference, to enter alone in the room where the ballot box was kept, and which provided for his passing out another door than that at which be entered. It broke np the business of ticket peddling, of brow beating ignorant voters and secured a perfectly orderly and quiet election. The law proposed /or Massachusetts bas many objectionable feature«, and while in one sense of the word it would elTer a free ballot, it by no means follows that it would be a fair one. For instance, the bill requires that the names of all candi date« shall be printed on every ballot, and the voter designate* by a cross mark oppo site the name of the candidate of his choice bow his ballot shall be counted. The bill equina that the name« of the candidates duly nominated or indorsed by a certain nomber of qaalitied voters, be placed upon the tickets, which are printed at the pub lic expense, and requires a notice of from thirty to seven days before elections, for • candidate to have his name so enrolled. It provides for secrecy in voting, and not only seeks to prevent intimidation, but forbidj solicitation at the polls. This may do very well in theory, bnt ii strikes us it goes too far. Every man has the right to run for office and every voter has the right to vote tor whom be please*. Very frequently the man who is an nounced the day before an election de feats candidates of weeks' standing. This law would not allow a ballot to be ounted if cast tor a man of lees than seven days' standing. The bill is right in principle, however, anil il seems that most of it* provisions could be made to work to great advantage. TUE Gl KL. QUESTION. "What kind of a girl dot* a college bud like best ?" The New York Prêta recently sent oat tliù» interesting query to the students of different colleges throughout the country. A summary of mm« of the answers re ceived will doubtless be acceptable to all daswe of our reader». Ia the first place, the answers show that the blonde hae gone out of fashion. The brunette completely fills the eye of the ollege man, and he writes page alter page of trash about raven hair, black eyes, pearly teeth, rosy cheeks and ruby bps. But to come down to details. A Ver mont man calls for all the ebursas of mod éra Yen ok, aad adds that the Roman east of features, with a fair complexion and a little color, suit him bjet, but be is will ing ta tolerate beauties ot the Grecian type. A young fellow at Union College write« that he prefers "a blooming, healthy girl, vigorous in mind and body.»' A «other at the saaas college has evidently temporarily Insane over "a petite ^■pe-4 brunette, with Mark r long lashss Bed lips and taad feel She must twt most not ha Nan any subject." A ninded student at Columbia wHl im- ' jwrt hut ideal aa ba cannot find bar in thia country. This misan- j khrope, by tbe way, should coma to West Virginia and gat cured. A Johss Hop kixs junior, rlaima that thera ara no mora modert girht. Oca jouognter at Yale write« that he ceo net "indue" an uneducated girl, nor can the "mijority" j of bis Mz. • These answers are fair samples. Our young men it college all appear to have »boat the «une ideals in tha girl line. They went beenty, education, rtjle and health. They say nothing about blood, wealth or industrious housekeeping hab ita Some people will call all thia trash and put it aside with a smile. They will make a big mistake. These college men will nearly all marry young. Much will depend upon their choice of helpmeets, and it is not too much to say that it will hare much to do in shaping the morals, fashions and destinies of the nation. When we take this large Tiew of the situation, it will ba ssen that the girl question is a matter of tremendous importance. And, withal, we think the boys can ba safely left to settle it for themselves; at any rate that i* what they will do. HK-LLAIRK.

An amusing episode occurred near the Junction one afternoon last week, in which the effect of man's imagination and ability to pray, at least vehemently, when tbe exigency of the caw calls forth latent talent in that line, were fully demon strated. Tbe incident is as follows: On a serene afternoon a gentleman was sitting on an embankment of earth gazing pen sively at the Western boriaxi, where the beautiful cirro-cumulus clouds were no doabt forming themselves into such ob jects as his reverie suggested. At a short distance stood a boy with one of those formidable weapons termed a "nigger-sbooter" in his hands, into which he was adjasting a small, round pebble. The boy twirled the weapon and a second after the gentleman felt a sharp, stinging sensation on the back of his head, and simultaneously he heard tbe sharp, explo sive report of some cars coming together, whereupon the gentleman throw np his bands and fell; %at k ward on tbe grass. He was convincsdtthat he had been shot by some dastardly coward in tbe rear, and feeling that his last hour had come be im mediately commenced praying, nor did he cease until tbe ciowd arouud him bad persuaded him that he was s live man, without a bullet in hi« cranium. The name is withheld for obvions reasons, one of which is there might bs skepticism about his praying. ^ We can—t all be Fremdest, bat we eut all of as criticise everything the President doce, «od suggest to oar neighbors simple ways in which it might hare been done mach better.—Stmernllf Journal.

UpdegrafT, of ML Pleasant, passed through the city yesterday on his way home from Philadelphia, where he has been conducting a series of meetings. Miss Fannio Anderson has, through her attorneys, Messrs. J. C. Gray and Lorenz > Danford, entered suit against the estate of the lute Dr. I. Weirich. Her bill for services amounting to $6,000 was pre sented to th? administrators of the estate and by them refused, le iving the courts as the only recourse. This case is a rather peculiar one. Mrs. Anderson is a niece of of the lately deceased Doctor, and some thing like twenty years »go came to live with him. She has during these twenty years and up to the time of his death, acted in the opacity of housekeeper, drug cletk and nurse, in turn, and whenever called upon to do so. That the Doctor appreciated her worth, and intended to reward her liberally, is shown by the illegal will which be made and wrote in one of his account baoks. In this will he leit to her all of his estate, except about $6,000, wbieh he willed to the M. E. Church, • a missionary society and a brother. His will, of course, being illegal, and entirely void, the administrators must set tle it all in accordancr with law, and the Doctor's nurse and faithful servant, Mrs. Anderson, gets nothing, except pay for her services, and ehe must sue for that. The law debars her from receiving pay for any service done prior to six years before the death of the deceased, and the 16,000 is the bill for services during that time. A Card of Denial. 7V> the Editor qf the Rcffùtei : Dkar Sir: Yonr local colorons this morning contained an article (headed "Discord") about the Plumed Knight«, which is wholly incorrect. It states: "The story goes that at a meeting held earl j in the week, the proceeding« were character ized by a painful amount of discord, and that the session, which was protracted until after 11 o'clock, actually broke up in a row; that the officers of the Knights resigned, and that the organisation is now without any distinct head, and is drifting about upon the political ocean with excel lent chances of going to the bottom, un less some means is speedily found of stop ping the leak, and once more putting the craft in sailing trim." The only meeting held by the Plumed Knights within the last two weeks was the one held on last Monday eveniog. At that meeting only a few of the members were present, and the meeting wie a very short one. It adjourned before 8:30 o'clock. There was not the least discord, and not one officer resigned or tendered his resignation. Altogether, not ona pari of the foregoing quotation is true. Tour reporter owes it to himself to five the name of the Republican (if any such there be) that is responsible for the said misstatements, aad «re hops that he will do so. Respectfully, B. & Allison.
