THOMAS II. JOHNSON, Iluslncs Maunder, WIMINKIIIA V, AIICIL'NT in, 1883. Seventeen millions of acres of govern ment land were sold last year, the whole of it bcicg in the West. It Is the Washington Republican that asks the public to remember that Sullivan, the slugger, has not yet whipped Mr. Samuel J. Tildsn. It is claimed that what would have been a formidable revolution, in the State of Tamau Upas, Mexico, a few weeks ago, was easily suppressed by reason of the quick means of transportation of troops by rail, to the scene ol insurreciion, and the authotlties are well satisfied with the benefits derived from the railroads. At a meetirg held at Sewanee, Tennessee, recently, by the Southern Uishops ot the Episcopal church of the United States, to dis cuss the relation ol the colored race in the South to the church, it was determined to submit to the general convention of church In October nex', the importance of some gen eral movement for the education of colored men desiring to enter the ministry of the church. Sl'EAKlNO of the Schleicher monument fund, the San Marcos Free Press says : "Up wards of $l,6oo has been collected in San Antonio for the erection of a monument to the late Hon. Gustav Schleicher. It will be increased lo $2,000 in the city, and as much more at least is expected from the other counties of the district. We are not aware that any contribution has as yet been raised in Hays county. She should have a share in so commendable an enterprise." The Tall Mall Gazette contains an an nouncement of the discovery of Noah's ark, Some Turkish commissioners were investlgat' ing the question of avalanches on Mount Ararat and found a gigantic vessel of dark wood almost hid in a glacier. The inhabi tants of that region claim to have seen it for six years, but were deterred from approaching it on account of a savage spirit which was seen in one of the upper windows. It is pleasant to know that the ark is in a good state of preservation. The Tall Mall Gazette adds : "It is needless to say an American was soon on the spot, and negotiations have been en tered into with the local Tacha for its speedy transfer to the United States." The Terrell Times retrospectively observes: "Twenty years ago neither the Central nor Union Tacific had been built, the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe was an Insignificant plug road; Minnesota was thought to be of little value, and Texas could scarcely boast of any railway worthy of the name. Even as in. telligent a man as General Sherman ridiculed the idea of a transcontinental railway. The person who would have dared to suggest the possibility of a State growing up In the heart ol the Kocky mountains would have be deemed worthy of a lunatic asylum; no one dreamed ol such a thing as a railway corn- munlcation between Kansas City and Santa Fe. Mexico was as a foreign country more uuiani man opain, anu even talilornla was as remote as Alaska now is. The Louisville Courier Journal pays the following compliment to President Arthurs "There is a popular impression that we have in the White House a thorough American and a thorough gentleman. Whatever differences of opinion we may have with the parly leader upon questions ol policy, we believe Mr. Ar thur to be an honest man, who fills the Presi dential office In a manner to make us proud of him both as the Chief of the Slate and as a fellow d'lzen It is more than likely that our paths i f political interesi and duty will diverge hence to come togeth-r next year in close and sharp antagonism, for there are many likelihoods that he will be the nominee ol his party to succeed himself In the crest place lo which he was called by the provi dence of God. If so, neither wlthdrswirip; or qusllfylng any part of our present Good opin ion, we shall oppoie his election precisely as we should oppose ihat of any member of a party which, to say the best for it, has been over long in power. In the meantime, how ever, let us eat, dilnlt, and be merry." Till small vole cast in this city on the pro posed constitutional amendments yesterday is reflection scslnit its citizens touching their interest in the good of the State at large, and it does not show the proper spirit Ihat the Im portance ol the occasion demanded. It Is true that the time set for this election was Ill chosen, and was sufficient in itself almost to create the spathy shown by the small vole, for with all the work done by the newspapers In the interest of the election, it lias really failed fits purpose, for not one vote in twenty In the stale was cast, and the friends of the admendraents displacd as much indifference as the opponents, llut let there be a Utile jim'crow election forihe office of constable, or some position of profit, and the sovereigns cannot get to the pools fast enough, and the day is not long enough for them to do their work of saving the country, which all goes to show that this great American citizen cares less for the provisions of the law, and is more indifferent to the propositions made in his in terest, than he is for the most unimportant official whose power comes through the ballot box. The returns are not in sufficient to show the result on the constitutional amendments, but it is to be hoped they have received a suf ficient number of votes to carry them. Not a Cook. From tho Philadelphia News. A Mexican lady of rank has hair two and a half yards long. It is a mighty fortunate thing for the Mexicans that she is a lady of rank instead of a cook in a boarding house. A Pest. From tho Chicago Times. It is said that the Colorado potato bug, which once carried terror to the farmers, is dying out. A worse pest.however. has come up to take its place The Colorado States man. An Insufficient Costume. From tho New York Star. Ella Wheeler says, in her latest poem, "Clothe me in rosy light." However such a costume might become the fair author,!! would, be a quite insufficient protection in the pres ent temperature of society. Proud of His Wife. From tho Detroit Free Ureas . At a small station near Kalamazoo a strap ping youth boarded the train, leading by the hand a blushing rustic maid,. Taking his stand in full view of everybody he orated ; "Ladies and gentlemen, this is my wife, Mrs. Ileuffner. Aaln t she a daisy ?" He proudly exhibited his prize to the amused observers ihrough a 50 mile ride with an exemplification ol the enticements he hail used to win her. Arriving at lluchanan, the happy pair alighted in the presence of a large ciowd assembled to greet Ihem. Again the groom announced : "Ladies and gents, my wife. Ain't she a darling ?" As the train moved nut the pas sengers waived their handkerchiefs and ap plauded, and the htppv and-not-ashamed-for- everjbody to-know.it pair were left to their rare ana singular leiicity. Artesian Wells In Algeria. In the south of the province of Cunstantine, Algeria, the boring of artesian wells, begun In l8c,0, was continued with renewed activity, after the interruption occasioned by the Fran- co-rrussian war, under the direction 01 M. Jus. At the end of 1870 the lone line of wells following the Wady Kir, between Biskra and Tugurt, included 434 sunk by the Arabs, and vieldine 61.000 liters a minute, and 68 bored by the French, yielding 113 000 liters. In the same decade, the number ol palm trees in theoasrs had increased from iw.000 to c.17.- 000 ; of fruit trees, from 40,000 to 90,000 ; of inhabitants, Irom bb72 to 12,827. During the nrst nan 01 ioso 12 new wells were bored, yielding 22,000 liters, and, at the end ol lSSt the total supply of water from these under ground sources was 209,000 liters a minute. Rev. Geogr. Philosophy of Advertising. In his address to the editors of Indiana, at their recent meeting at Fort Wayne, Colonel Pierce, of Chicago, presented the following thoughts with reference to advertising, which arc worth remembering. He said: And in presenting a beautiful sheet typo graphically one should remember the adver Users as well as the readers. A man likes to -have his advert sement Dleaainrr to look unon catcning to tne eve ana indicative generally ot iug .uTtuiiu. 1111. .!. ui patrons arc 50 important to success that they should receive every encouragement. Particularly should they be impressed with the desirability of Kcepintr mcir wares Deiore trie nuuuc. a man never realizes the full benefits of advertising till he has placed the matter before the same people 50 or a 100 times. The first ad. is good, but the tooth is worth more than 500 times as much as the first. Some c n: had said that the First time a man looks at an advertisement he does not see it. The second time be does not notice it. The third time be is dimly conscious of it. 1 ne rourin time ne laintiy remembers som e filth time he half reads It. The sixth time he turns un his nose at it. The seventh time he throws the paper down impatiently. The eighth time he ejaculates: "There' the confounded thing again." ine mntn time ne wonders II there's any thing in it. Th tenth time he thinks it might possibly suit somebody else's case. The eleventh time be thinks he will ask his neighbor irhe has tried it, or knows anythin; about it. The twelfth time h: wonders it the adver tiser can make it pay. The thirteenth time he rather thinks It must be a good thing. The fourteenth time he hannens to think It is lust what be wanted. The fifteenth time he for a long lime re solves to try it as soon as he caa afford it. The sixteenth time he exsmines the address carefully and makes a memorandum of It. The seventeenth time he is tantalized to think he is tiardlr able to afford it. The eighteenth time he sees painfully how much he is in need of that particular article. The nineteenth time he counts his money to see how much he would have left if he bought it. The twentieth time he rushes frantically loiui anu ou)S it. Five Cents rai l for one class and 10 cents for n aclioonrr, and .10 cents will pay for tho Liomt for a whulo week.
