Politics ns n Business.
Young men who think of making politics
a business should stop find consider.
Tho path to political proferment is
seemingly broad and smooth, but when
onco ontorcd upon, it proves long and
tiring and is so full of obstacles, not
visiblo at tho outset, that only tho most
patient pcrsovernnco and au uncommon
ambition can successfully ovorcomo
them. It is easy enough to get a start
in tho political arona. Genial mannors
will soon win hosts of political friends
to tho youth who brings his unbounded
enthusiasm along, and an average
will, without much effort,
secure him quito a place in local politics.
But this will not bo stiiliclont tor a
proud mind, and yet but a very few
over got beyond. 'Very small is tho
number of those whoso sin crior intellect
raises them abovo their fellows,
smaller yot tho number of those who
find public recognition) rofitablo enough
to enrich them. Many a man who started
out with a hope ul heart and under
promising auspices has passed through
polities to poverty and obscurity. A
tew men got rich in public life, but thoy
are only u few. Tho prizes are as rare as
thoso in tho Havana lottery, and much
harder to keep after thoy are drawn.
In every town and community tliero nro
men eagerly contending w th
other for whatever of value thoro is to
1)0 gained in tho political field. Tho
young man disposed to work faithfully
and diligently will find tho strugglo
much less sovoro and houorablo btiecess
much moro corta'n in tho circlo of business.
And ho certainly will bo moro
independent. Ho does not need to bow
to Uioso who think themsolvos superior
to him, but aro not; ho has not to end ire
tho familiarity of every loafor, but can
choose his companions for their worth
and not because of their "rower" at any
primary. Ho can shut his door and retire
whon ho needs just. Whatever ho
earns is his own. The professional
beggars, who consider politicians to 1 e
their legitimate prey, havo no claim on
him. His peace of mind does not do-pond
ipon tho outcome of an election or
tho vote of a precinct, nor his prosperity
on tho good will of others.
Tho country is cursed with professional
politicians, nnd they injuio themselves
even moro than thov do tho public.
Every American citizen sliould bo somewhat
of n politician, but not try to
makoa living out of tho questionable
profession. Tho young man is wise
who docs not run after political honors,
but waits till thoy come to him. Burlington

Snndny Marriage Engagement Valid,.
An opinion was filed a fow days ago
in tho Supremo Court, in tho caso of
Charles Mnrklov, a bachelor of 58 years,
against whom Eliza Ko-wiring, a maiden
of fl8, obtained a verdict of $993.75,
in tho Lancaster County Court, for
breach of promise of marriage. The
parties in this lovo affair lived in May-town,
Lancaster County. An engagement
of m irri ige took place on Sunday,
tho lUth day of August, 1879. Ttio
courtship had been very short, and w is
minus the warmth of heart usually displayed
in such preliminaries. Indeed,
tho'ong igomunt w is spoken of as a ra st
oKtrao (Unary affair. Markloy purchased
his lady lovo a number of presents,
and fcoeminzly prepared for tho
wedding day. What lira was in his
heart, however, suddenly cooled, and
one evening ho told Miss Kosscring,
who was a seamstress, that ho was too
old and lama to get married. He gave
as a rotsou that his father was lying at
tho point of death, and it would not bo
proper to marry. under suoh circumstances.
His swoothoart never spoko to
. him again, but straightway instituted
proceedings to recover a bairn fqr thp
atlllction of her heart, Tho jury before
whom tho caso was tried was a
one, and, by thoir verdict, thoy calculated
to tho very cent tho injury Miss
Kessering had sustained, Markloy 's appeal
to tho Supreme Court was basod
upon several reasons, tho most important
of which was that tho alleged contract
of mirriagQ had takqn placo on
Sunday, and was, therefore, invalid, the
same as any other contract, businesslike
or social, made on that day. Tho
opinion of tho Supremo Court in sustaining
tho vordiot of tho jury says that
there was nothing In any of tho
of orror to warrant a reversal.
Tho caso was pronorly submtttod to tho
jury, and tho fact that the contract of
marriage was entered into on Sunda7
could nut avail, in view of tho ovidonco,
widen was overwhelming, to tho effect
that ihu ongagomonc had boon subsequently

Homo News by Wny of tho Isthmus.
El Canal, a paper
printed at Panama, tolls tho following
story, tho scono of which, it says, was in
Now York city :
" Sir, will you havo tho kindness to
road mo this paperP" said n man of
very good appoaranco to an ologantly
dressed gentleman.
"I will,' rospondod tho gentleman
addressed, and directed himself to a
street lamp near by, tho light of which
onablod him to read tho following:
"If you givo ono cry, if you pronounce
a singlo word, a dagger will
cleavo your heart. Givo mo instantly
your watch, chain and purso, and thon
pursue your way.'
" Tho gontloman, surprised and terrified,
delivered to tho unknown without
uttoring a word, tho things that wore
asked of him, and thon both persons
walked off in different directions. But
after going a fow stops tho gontloman
encountered a policeman, to whom ho
related what had transpired and seeing
still at a little distance tho unknown who
had despoiled him thoy approached
him, detained him, and carried him off
to prison.
" When tho day for his examination
in court arrived tho accused listened
tranquilly to tho chargo preferred
against him, playing meanwhile with
tho chain of tho stolon watch. When
tho accusation against him had boon
rnudo tho supposed, criminal aroso, and
u well cbo&en phrases informed tho
court nnd Ids auditors .that ho had tho
misfortune to lack oducation; that ho
knew not how to rend orwrito and that,
having found in tho street a paper that
perhaps might bo important, ho had 'requested
a gentleman who had passed to
read what thoro was upon it; that tho
gontloman approached a street lamp,
read the paper in a low volco, and without
.speaking a word, gavo to him his
watch, chain, and purso, immediately
thereafter hastening away without giving
him time to oxpress his surprise or
ask hirn what ho meant. AU this mado
him bolievo that that paper was valuable
nnd that tho chain, and purso had been
given him a3 a reward for his finding

Newspaper Work.
A few years ago tho newspnper profession
was looked down upon as nothing
but a Gehennch for tho wrecks and
cripples of other professions. A reporter
was tho very acmo of social degradation.
Now, however, it is ditlerent.
Every ono of tho young men who havo
just left some alma niaier believes that
he can write, and that ho has but to
oiler his services to bo installed in somo
responsible position. How many aro
disappointed tho walls of a newspaper
otlice could relato were thoy able to
speak. Newspaper work is not a matter
of writing, but of putting as many
facts, and as much of them as is possible,
in tho briefest possible space. It
takes a young man fresh from college a
long timo to find that out, and until that
knowledge is obtained thov havo to
sutler many a pang whilo seeing an editor's
bluo pencil making sad havoc with
thoir elegant periods, nice illustrations,
and worthy introductions. If a man has
not instinctively got an oyo for news
and tho faculty of getting it expeditiously
he may "polish tho sidewalks" for a
lifetimo nnd yot bo no nearer tho goal
ho started out to rench. The most remarkable
thing, however, is tho number
of women who crowd into tho profession
of journalism by sheor persistency.
Once a woman lays aside hor natural
resdrvo sho becomes moro pushing nnd
irrepressible than a drummer, and thus
many succeed in actually forcing themselves
into positions. As a rule, thoy

Adulteration,
Adulteration has becomo a science
Wo water our stock, and sand our sugar,
nnd diluto our prayers with many words,
nnd havo fallen so low that wo use glue
in our Ice cream. What an nppotiziiig
combination is gluo and cream. We
"don't know what tiio gluo is mado of,
and for that matter wo don't know what
the cream is made of, though wo havo a

cow would ropudinto tho idea that she

but whon tho gluo and tho cream

Tho beauty of tho gluo is that it makes
tho ico cream frothy, and doludes tho
unwary into tho belief that ho gots a
great deal moro than ho pays for. There
may, however, bo a moral sido to this
matter, and if gluo tnkon internally will
only mnko somo men stick to their
word, and mnko othors stick to thoir
business iustoiul of spending most of
their timo attending to other poople's,
it will cease to be an adulteration and

More Flesh Less Fat.
A man's appetite frequently has much
to do with his opinions. Forty years
ago, when labor was a pleasure, wo
cared not how much fht was mixed with
tho flesh of beef. Our digestive organs
wore equal to any demands upon tho
system Loss activity has wrought
sympathy for tho sedentary nnd tho dyspeptic.
The largest portion of tho beef
e.ttors cannot eat or digest tho lumps of
tallow on our fatted beeves. Nearly
half of tho weight is tallow, and is a total
waste. Hence there is a domand
for beef for city consumption in tho
United States and Europe with moro
flesh and less fat. And tho inquiry lias
become so earnest that breeders and
feeders are boginning to heed tho
Even our English customers
complain that American beef is mado
too much of corn and too littlo of grass.
Tho only way to obviato this complaint
is to raiso moro bluo grass and loss corn.
And tho pastures should bo so arranged
that growing steers can havo tho advantage
of it in winter as well as summer.
Corn is not to bo repudiated as
tho food or finish of cattle. Nor is it to
bo denied that it is a flesh as well as fat
producing article of diet. But cattlo
raised mainly on swcot, tender grass,
havo a greater proportion of flesh,
than when fed mainly on corn. Tlio
complaint cannot bo remedied altogether
by tho change of food. It must bo
largely aided by the breedor in selecting
stock inclined to n largo amount of
juicy flesh and less bono and fat. O ir
soil and water saturated with lime is
calculated to produco larger bones, so
breeders must judiciously solect small
boned and well fleshed animals. Wo
havo always contended that tho profession
of stock breeding meant something,
and if it is not employed to improve in
every way, tho business should bo abandoned,
and thoso men called thoroughbred
cattlo rnisors. This is a serious
question to consumers, and wo plead
for more tondri juicy flesh and smaller
piles of tallow with our beet-Beautify

Tho best test of tho worthiness of a
community is probably tho extent to
which it keeps tho Lord's day holy. All
good things go with Sabbath observance,
generally speaking, and all bad things
with Sabbath desecration. Another excellent
test is tho expenditure on education,
and another, missionary contributions.
As a test of intelligence and activity,
the consumption of paper por
head of tho community has been
and tho average consumption of
sugar is equally indicative of tho degree
of comfort in which tho people five.
But in all the tests of comfort nnd taste,
that which strikes a traveler through a
country most readily is tho appearance
of iho with thoir gar-dons,
lawns., fences and other surroundings.
Whether these dwellings bo
or viila man-,1 ms, it matters littlo;
it is tho evidence of attention
and good taste that impresses t'io iniud

However small tho front court or back

A Queer Story About Gnrlbnlill.
Tho writer of an editorial article pub
lished in a recent issue of an Italian
newspaper called tho Senlinelle du Midi,
assorts that Garibaldi was slain nt
and has, evor sinco that fatal
day, been impersonated by a Livornesc,
whoso resemblance to him was a matter
of public notoriety for some yenrs before
tho General's death. It is further
alleged that tho late King Victor Emanuel
must bo held responsible for the substitution
in question, an oxpedient of
his own suggestion for averting a downright
breach between tho Garibaldian
faction and tho dynasty. Soveral of tho
roal Garibaldi's fellow campaigners in
Uruguay have at different times testified
publicly to tho hoax thus practiced upon
tho Italian nation, but to no purpose
although thoir allegations havo been
uniformly supported by indisputable
physical ovidonco.
They point, for instance, to tho facts
that Garibaldi's hands and feet wero
small and finely formed, whilo thoso of
his impersonator wero largo and ill-shaped
that the former could scarcely
write his own name, whilo tho latter
was a skilled and fluent penman. This
imposture," observes tho writer, "no-counts
for tho unconcealed antipathy
entertained by Menotti nnd llicciotti
Garibaldi toward thoir dead father's impersonator,
whom Menotti could never
meet without breaking out into abusive
language, whilo llicciotti, although
upon tho island of Caprora, steadfastly
declined to cross the impostor's
threshold.' It is worthy of mention
that tho Fanfulla, an organ of tho Italian
Government, denounces tho above-mentioned
article in good round terms,
but, nevertheless, reproduces it in -its
entirety surrounded by a broad black
border. London Telegraph.
Americans as Frog Enters.
Tho people of New York aro great
frog caters. They consume moro of
them than do tho people of Paris. At
present tho regular supply is about 300
pounds per day. But frogs nro scarce
and xloar at the present. When thoy become
plenty thoro will boa demand of a
tonoffrogs'moat daily. Tho best articlo
comes from Canada in tho Ontario district.
Tho general method of catching
thorn is with hook and lino, using a bit
of red flannel to danglo before tho eyes
of the victim and attract his attention,
when tho hook is slipped under his chin
nnd ho is snatched up. After being
caught thoy are killed and skinned and
packed in tiibs.holding about fifty pounds
each. Ico is put around them. Nothing
but tho hind legs and a part of the sido
and back are sent to tho market Tho
foro quarters havo littlo or no moat upon
them. The h'nd toot are not cut oil.
At tliis season of tho year frogs retail at
sixty cents per pound. As the season
advances and frogs become moro plentiful
the price declines to thirty-five cents
a pound. This demand for frogs has
all been developed within ton or twelve
years. Artificial propagation in the
vicinity of New York has failed, it is
said, because of difficulty in getting sufficient
cheap food on which to food the
tadpoles and young frog-. Tho consumption
of frogs in Boston is also
greatly on the increase. Tho Now York
Truth learns that the largest dealer in
Boston sells about 150,000 frogs per
year at an aver'ago of sixty cents per
dozen. In tho busy seasonlio employs
twelve to fifteen men, who go through
Massachusetts and even into Maine and
New Hampshire, catching frogs, which
nro shipped alive in boxes prepared for
