BLAISE'S OFPOXESTS. Boston Advertiser, Rep. Whatever course Mr. Blaine's republican opponents now deter mine opou they cantiot be charged with being willing to risk tbe des tinies oi the country iu the hands of a President devoted to corrnpt political methods, or ready to Hbape a dangerous policy for a noisy popularity. Their decisiou as to the courts to be taken for the purpose of making their opposition more effective aud with A view to their future political ussfulness, can now be made without embar rassment from this cause, and will no douht speedily give ucnuite form to tbe political field. HONORABLE AND COMPETENT. Vicksburg Herald, Dem. Tbe convention which uominnted Governor Cleveland waa as fine and as able a body of men as ever assembled on tbe American couti tent. A prompt nomination by such a body of men, to be chosen the leader ot Abe great democratic party, when it particularly needs a leader free from reproach, able, flue aud skillful, ia a compliment that any statesman who has spent bis wbole lite in its service might teel proud of. Such an bonor aud soch a compliment to the pure, honorable young goveruor ot New York would be calculated to tum hjs jjead. but for bis eminent fit ness to wear tnom. BOWS ABETENCE. Roohester N. Y., Union, Dem. Against tbe wishes and argu ments of this journal, the uatlooal democratic convention has nomi nated Grover Cleveland for Presi dent. As the combined wisdom of the party ia greater than that or any oue member of it, the Union bows to the oenests or tue oem- ocrucy, and will follow the old flag into tbe fiercest or tue Dgur. xue ticket shall have our best support uot alone because it baa been placed in the field by tbe national democratic party, but because it is inoomparibly superior in per tonnel aud purpose to tbat nomi nated by the republican convention. Thaoulv wav for tbe demooratio par ty to sncoeed is to be demooratio. The Caioa waa thoroughly demooratio and outapokeu Iu regard to can ididatfa In-tore uouiinatioti ; it is uow estspcidily democratic aol frs.uk lit n-eeptinjr, the action of the uutioual conveution as final aud biudio". LOST ITS BOLD OX THE GERMANS. N. Y. States Zaitang, Rep. The republican prty lias, since Maine's nomination, entirely lost tbe bold it ouce had on tbe Oer mnus. Jleoctj the notuinntiou ot Mr. Clevelnud will nuke it especially-advisable for the Germans to join ru uiiisse tbe democratic party. As regards the Ejaf, we are of tbe opinion that New York is absolutely sure tor Cleveland. THE STRONGEST POSSIBLE. N. O. Times Democrat, Dem. The democratic convention, alter (our days' deliberation, bits given to tbe country tbe strongest ticket it waa possible to nominate, a tick et presenting so many elements of visor that its success canuot be d ubted. IMPOSSIBLE TO OBJECT. N. O. Picayune, Dem. To the nominations made by the national couveutiou yesterday it is entirely impossible to oppose a word ot objection, oo far as er. souul fitness is concerned the tick et Is an bonor to the party, liven the opponitiou which Gov. Cleve lund'.i coarse ot Albany has evoked troin the democrats of New York mil Kings counties is mi bonor to bis manhood and a testimony to his character. THE HERALD INDORSES. X. Y. Herald, Ind. Tha Herald puts at the head ol its columns the democratic ticket for president aud vice president of tbe Uuited States. te congrat ulate the democratic party uKn tbe work of its couveutiou at Chi cago, and tbe opiwrtuulty it oilers to the American people through a union of patriotic voters, by what ever name they call tbeniM'lves democrats, independents, labor re formers, or whatever else to re deem the country from the dis grace jnd peril which the republi can party has plotted to exKse it by the thoroughly bad nomination ot lilaino aud Logau. THE STRONGEST AND HOST A TAIL ABLE. Atlanta Constitution, Dom. We tire firm iu the opinion that, we have put forward our strongest aud most available candidate Gov. Cleveland is a man of the people, lie baa fought bis way from their ranks to his present high position with a rapidity that ia dazzling. From first to last be has beeu ir resttble. Never beateu before tbe people, cbangiug adverse majori ties with the ease of a magician, but is vested with a certain prestige that hangs about bim us an armor. SOUND CANDIDATES. Spriug'leld, Mass., Rep. The democratic party Imscoine fully up to its grent opportuuity and placed in nomination for tbe presidency Governor Cleveland, ot New York, with Hendricks, of In diana, in the second place, as in 1376. It is old ticket of 1376, with the new reforming Governor of New York iu place ot the old. This is A happy nuion of the avail able bnir of the ticked ot 17U aud of tbe new and vigorous manhood ot the party with its receut expe rience in practical ndmiuistratiou aud its just appreciation of the present issues. Tbe nomination ot this ticket gives tbe democracy approximately an even chance of carryiug the country. They have souud candidates upou a good platform. The independents will pnf. np no third caudidate, but will heartily supiiort Cleveland and Uendricks. Tbe democratic nomi nations, there tore, stand an even cha'ice of currying the States of New York, Connecticut and New Jersey jwhicb at present are in democratic bauds. A SAGACIOUS STATESMAN, Harpei'a Weekly, Rep. - Harper't Weekly believes the uomination of James G. Blaine to have been a grave political mis take, ti ud tbat his election would, at this critical period of the na tion's history, endanger the in fluence of the republican princi ples. It believes that tbe election of Grover Cleveland, who, aa tbe Governor of the State of New York, bos evinced the executive qualities of a sagacioaa, uopnrtisan statesman, would promote me oo- iects tor which the republican par ty bos contention, ana ue win therefore receive the earnest and coudiul support odlarpey'i Weekly. R, C. Hansboro. shot and killed Geo. Ransom at Carrolltou, Miss., last Saturday. Tbey were both white republicans. Tbe killing waa tbe result of political fued running through several years. , Handling; Women's Arms. "You- most have bold of a large number of arms in tbe course ot a day," Mid a, Rochester Democrat asd Chronicle reporter to a Central Hudson traiumau a few dyssiuce. "Yes, we do: Pve uever stopped to couut them, but wheu we reach tbe end of tbe road this arm gen erally feels rather tired," and he held up the member ou the right hand side foriuspectiou. "How uo the arms run as to sIzeT "Well, there ia a great deal ol difference Country women have a better-formed arm than city wo men; I can almost always fell tbem just oo tbat ncconut. They do more work and have better food, and tbat goes a great way toward giving their arms a good propor tion." "But dou't most ot the city ladies have well prooi tioned arms t" "They seem to, but Pve found that appearauces are very deceit ful in a great many cases. 1 have bad bold ot many an arm to day where I could take my oath that the sleeve waa tilled ou the inside with cotton or woolen ' batting. Yoacau tell very quick whether its dry goods or the genuiuo article. There's a sort ot spring to padding that isn't fouud in flesh, and the teel i u ia different also." "I must any that I dou't see bow you can distinguish ao welL" "I presume yoa fellows couldu't, but if yon bad bad tbe practice I get in a mouth you could soon tell the real aubstauce from the false." "Uow many do yon assist ou traina iu a day t" "That ia a bard question to an swer. Some days there are many more than others. So far to day I think Pve helped fully one hun dred and fifty women ou." " Do any of them ever object to being helped ou board V "Ouce iu a while; but its gener ally some old muid who wou't let a man look at hot cross-eyed if she can help It." ' "It they heard what you've been saying you wouldu t help as many iu future." "I dou't care if they do," was tbe rer-pouse. "It will be so much less hard work for us ; but here comes another, auotlier, and I guess I won't say tiny more," he contiued, as a fat, red faced female ot lolly 200 came puffing toward tbe oar, and tbe conversation came to a close. The Prodigal. Merchant Traveler. A Methodist preacher iu one ot tbe monutaiu districts of Arkansas one day happeucd to find a family to whom the light of the gospel baA come only through a glass darkly, and the 11 1 meal knowledge or the household was very limited, lie at once set abont postiug the mem bers by leading to them from the Bible. Qe turned to the story of the Prodigal Son, aud was reading to a very attentive audieuce, until be came to tbat portion narrating the killing of the fatted calf. "Wut'a that, Mister, wat'sthatT interrupted the mother, excitedly. "Did yer say tbe old man killed a fat calf fur that boy o' his'u f ' "Thai's what tbe book says, Bis ter." "Well, yer kinjis suet hit np. I dou't wunter h'ar uo siub stuff' as thet." "Why, my Christian friend, tbat is the gospel, aud there cau be nothing wrong in tbat. "les, tuar is, too.

Good day, Mister, Zeke, go out au' unloose the dog." Snake Bite Antidote. Afacon Beacon. ... We have just heard of a new remedy for snake bite. Last week Mr. Gns Bush, Jr., and a doctor of Pickens county, Alabama, were driving cattle through tbe woods. when tbe latter was bitten on the calf of the leg by a rattle-snake, with niue rattles, leaving four die ttuot puueturea made by its fangs and lower teetb. The snake was immediately killed, its gall bladder out out, and tbe bile Applied to the wouud with marked effect. Tbe doctor experienced no bad results, not even swelling or inflamation of tbe leg, nor- tbat serious prostra tion usually caused by the bite ot veuomons reptiles. 8. T. West, son of A. M.

Why the lktt-helof Govcmer Never Obtained a Bride. Baffal Special tu K.w York Morning Joarma!. "Governor Cleveland boa hii many love afftirs, bat not so much as a bachelor ot bis weight, lolitically and socially, would be expected to have. Ilia love aftoirav have all beeu of the platonm kiud, and it is said by hi mends that be has been incapable ot tailing deep, ly enough ia love to any girl since he became a lawyer in lSoD. When be was just able to support him self he became enamored ot a pret ty and beantilul youug woman who wsa a relative of the late Judge Verplanck. Tbe girl was not die posed to look favoiably on bit suit. aud this made him love her the more. She waa quite a flirt and de lighted to tantalize bim by permit ting other youug mea to escort ber borne from tbe old bagle-street theatre, which was then the our place of amusement ot any account in the city. The girl was compara tively wealthy and looked dowu on Giover, who waa a poor lawyer. After awhile she got to thinking: fondly of bim, aud it is aaid that -they wero eugaged to be married when she waa taken ill with a fever and died. Cleveland did uot recover from tbe shock tor several months, and though be has a bachelor' liklog for pretty ladies Ida friends say that he will never marry. Oue lady became so infatuated with bim. that she proposed to him. lie rejected ber advances, aud it la -said that she became crazy aad is now confined in tbe asylum. Goveruor Cleveland baa always been of a retiring disposition and most of bis time baa been stunt in his law library or in tbe company of ' bachelor friends. His most frequent places of re sort were tbe City club and tbe high toned Buflalo club ou Dela ware avenue. There be was accus tomed years ago to siieud most of his evenings playing cards and tell ing or listening to stories told by a coterie composed of tbe tate lion, llaminou S. Cutting, the late John Allen, vice-president of the Cen tral and Lludsou railroad, aud other nu mm ried gentlemen. A t'neijd of tue Governor told the Journal correspondent to-day a . romnutio story of how a lady liv ing near PougbkeepNio engaged in correspondence with tbe Governor since he was elected mayor, aud that a tender feeling bud spruug up between tbem. They have met but four times, once when Cleve land was sheriff, a few years later at Saratoga, after Cleveland waa elected mayor nnd once since ho has been governor. This fiieud said that it was quite Irsely that the lady would be married by Cleveland if elected president, aud that she would grace the White House parlors at ' hi reception. The lady is described as -toeing a cliarmiug bruuette, abott thirty- five years old, with pleases jn! tiers and cousHieinoie property; Inquiry among other friends veri fied the story, but no one would tell the lady's name or just where ebo lived, except that it waa in a small town near rougukcepsie. Women as Cashiers. A St. Louis paper wants to give- wooieu chauce to act as cashiers, because tbey are uaturally more honest than men. It says: We are apparently in tbe midst of an- epidemic of embezzlement. De faulters, forgers ana swindlers oi all kiuds abonnd, aud disboucsty among trusted employes is begiu- piug to Bbake our counnence in. human nature. There is a partial remedy, which is worth trying.. This is to employ no men as clerks, aud to let women handle the cash.. Young women have not tbe temp tations of youuir - men. They do- not smoke, and drink, and bannt billiard-rooms. They do uot spend money for back rides and on frail. companions. Tbey do uot know bow to bet ; tbey bavo no chance to gamble. Women who are ao. fortunate as to be given a chauce to earn their living are regular iu their habits. Tbey are honest, sober, Industrious, accurate, decent, and sate. A great many women . are already employed In all de partmeuts of business aud in all capacities. We doubt whether there is a case on record of ouo ot them turning out A thief. The more generally women are em ployed in positions of trust and confidence, the fewer will he tbe eases ot embezzlement. Mrs. Judge A. T. Jtoano, died to Grenada last Tuesday morning.
