Our I’iciij nuts. —New Orlintn Picayune. Short crops are long enough in coming. The self-made man, if he is well made is better than the forced ar ticle. The market is considered stub born when the price will not go down. The death ol Vietor lingo leaves France a chance to admire some one else. One swallow does not make a summer no more than it makes a drunkard. It lias been shown that Kiel is a bully and a coward, and not a brave man at all. No frivolous bang ever,conceal ed the intellectual forehead of Su san B. Anthony. Under the impression that it was leap year a man jumped from the Brooklyn Bridge. Baton Rouge has selected a yard for New Orleans excursionists to stay in while there. Bob Iiigcrsoll is happy. The old Bible revisers have shown up the mistakes of Moses. John L. Sullivan has accused liis w ife of cruel and abusive treat ment. He needs protection. A Presbyterian Assembly always lias a moderator,and by that means every thing is done in moderation. The minister to England must he a man who feeds well and does not meddle with Irisb-Ameiican citi zens. (Icorge William eurtis says civil service reform has come to stay. It will stay after some of the ras cals go. It is at this season of the year that the American clergyman loses his voice, and recommends that he be sent U) Europe. It is said the girall'e has never been known to utter a sound. This is remarkable when his length ol throat is considered. So far as knowing how to spell his own name is concerned, Chris topher Columbus was as iguoraut as William Sliakesperc. The faith that will remove niouu nans is like the salt on the tail of the bird you wain to catch. It is difficult to get the faith there. ✓ It is said Secretary Lamont uev forgets a face- llo has Been some very hard ones, looking for office( since the fourth of March. Considering tho trouble that half-breed aft'air made, there is no knowing what Canada will do when she has a full-blood rebellion on hand. Ill,iu»is has shown that she can not get along without John A. Logan to speak for her. John Hherinau may now take pity ou Ohio. Tax returns are candid. The man who expects to he assessed never brags about b'.s business. He leaves his drummers the pleas ure of talking him up. A Washington correspondent says relations between Secretary Bayard and the President are strained. The correspondent has things dowu very fine. Good soldiers make a great gen eral On a forced march the legs of the enlisted man are as useful as the brains of the commanding officer who is carried on a horse. Fashion papers never give cuts and styles of fat women, because they think the fats have no style. Bazar patterns are made for tall, thin, impossible people Angels Are not infallible. It is stated on good authority that the devil was an angel once. Since his fall, however, all the angels have been women, and none have been sent below.

Row Millet, Our farmer friends should keep this matter in mind, and set apart a place somewhere upon the farm, | for an acre or two for the growing of this important crop. It may be upon some piece of low land, : which has been overflowed during the present season, which is yet too wet to plant in cotton or corn but that will answer for millet, which can bo sown w ithin the next thirty days. Or it is possible where all of the other conditions aro fav orable, such as a moist soil which is reasonably fertile, to have it succeed the present crop of oats. In any event,it ia a crop,too impor tant and necessary to be overlooked by any farmer. It makes a most ex eellent snhstitne for hay, which with the abnndent yield of seed renders it of almost inestimable value to the farmer —Rural and Workman. Learning the Art of Rlnktilntlng. And it came to pass, there came a day when the young man with the lead pencil legs and high wa ter pants bethought himself of the skating rink. So he went out, and when he came nigh unto his girl, ho spake unto her, saying: “Come, Mary, lit ns gird ourselves up and go hence to the rink, for behold 1 have hecn diligent in the absence and have embezzled two coupons.” So they went, one with the other, for they loved each other with love, the greatness of which was like unto death. And when the youth and maiden were come unto the rink, they saw divers other young men and maid ens waltzing hither and tither, and standing upon their necks and spreading themselves upon the Hoor to the four corners of the place. And Mary was pleased thereat, for she saw the other maidens stick ing to their escoits closer than boiler rivets. And she longed for some of the same agony. So she prevailed upon her lover to go and do likewise. And he went with a light heart, for ho lov ed the sport because he had been there before and knew the which ness tlicreuj. Anti after a litt le while lio re- j turned and took Mary’s teet and 1 fastened the skates thereon: And in like manner did he unto his own feet. Then they smiled one up on the other and went upon the wobbly way. And it came to pass when they got out where the eyes of the mul titude were upon them, Mary for got herself and looked hack. Now this was a grievous thing to do, for it was written on the wall: “Thou uhalt not look back when thou skatest, lest thy feet forsake the : and thou treadost upon thine i ear.” But Mary was full of joy and chocolate caramels, and remember- . ed not these things. So when she looked back her feet flew from under her, and went up into the atmosphere and out a star therein, and decended with a great crash, and Mary sat down ou the tioor with a dull thud so that her bustle escaped and came out at the neck of her dress. And her fall was exceedingly hard; yea.great was the muchucss there of. [ So likewise had her lover spilled himself, but ho hurt himself not, | for he had been like the seven wise | skaters who had put cork soles in | the bafiemeut of their trousers. But in an evil moment ho saw i Mary’s bustle about her neck, and ho lifted up his voice and laughed and asked her from whence came the chuiTbag. Then vras Mary wroth, and she grew red in the countenance und answered saying: “Thou ieadest me iu slippery paths, and wlicu the door riseth up and striketh me 1 in a grievous place, thou couieth not to my aid, yea, verily, thou gurglcst at my misfortune. Hence forth we will remaiu together a little closer off. And from that day to this she passch him by ou the other side of the avenue.—Holler Skater. The investigation which will! now be made concerning the ex- j1 peudilurea of money upon naval ' vessels for repairs will probably ' recall at lesf-t a part of the inner j' history of those wasteful and cor-,1 rupt practices that have made our navy a byword and out naval ad ministration a synonym for the most unscrupulous jobbery.—New York Times, Hep. , Public Opinion. The best democratic party docs the most to strengthen a democrat ic party and principals.—U. b. 1 Democrat. I Our position Is that a president j elected as a democrat on a demo- j era tic platform, by the democratic | party, is under honorable obliga- | lion to rather than any other.— ; New York World, Dem. Our navy ought to he allowed to complete in the “shain naval bat-j tie” which the British Admiralty | proposes to have in Bantry Bay. j No other nation lias tnore’sliam na j val vessels, and we would proba-! bly win the prize.—Washington Star, Ind. The republican organs are quar reling a good deal over the mean ing of the term offensive partisans. They are making too much of it. j It is well known that an offensive partisan is a republican office hoi- j der—nothing more, nothing less. —Atlanta Consitution, Dem. Wo desire President Cleveland and the present administration to' have the love, respect, and sup- j port of every democrat in the conn-1 try. Therefore, we wish demo crate in position in all places where j the public service would not suffer I by the change.—-U. S, Democrat. Secretary Whitney has just dis covered that the government lias paid ♦900,000 for repairs on a wooden navy vessel, the original cost of which could not have been a cent more than one-third that amount. However, ‘‘the cash in the treasury"balances to a cent.’ — Chicago Times Ind. It may be in order to observe that if the republicans are deter- j mined among themselves that the civil service, under the present ad ministration. Shall be composed of “offensive partisans,” they have no right to expect that they shall , be any other than democratic “off ensive partisans.”—Louisville Cou rier-Journal. To us it seems a plain, practical, legitimate proposition un ler a democratic administration, and vice ver^a, cl elections by parties is a farce, political issues have j ceased to be, and the millennium has come.—Washington Post, t Dcm. Wo wish the president would make hasto to till a few more Mass achusetts office with capable demo crats. Mr. Pillsbury is unfortu nately the only man they can flock to. He hasn’t offices enough to go round, and it would ease up mat ters if the president would put democrats inte the other impor tant offices.—Boston Post, Deiu. Let us be manly ami consistent We have no right to expect bene-: fits where wo have rendered no service. If we are anxious to share the advantages of democrat ic victories wo must help the dem- j oeruts to win such. To say that Mr. Cleveland has boon inconsist- j ent toward us because he lias not appointed or retained in high plac es colored republicans is highly ri-j diculotis and absurd.—New York Freeman, Negro Organ. The peoplo whose votes last year dictated the overthrow of the par ty in power desire t) see tho de cree executed elsewhere as at Washington; they want the proof of it to be made visible at their own doors. To comply with tho popular wish in this respect will not hurt either the administration or the civil service. To pursue any different policy would disor- j ganize the party and assure the success of its rival.—New York Graphic. An exchange very truthfully says: “You may be able to get a large city weekly, filled with mur ders, scandal cases, cock tights, etc., for the same money that you | pay for your local paper; but these L-ity weeklies never advertise your :ounty aud niako your property j valuable. They do not help along your schools aud churches; they , do not publish your county news; they say nothing of you and your own, and have no interest in you. A good newspaper is as much ad vantage to a town or county as are ; schools. If one of our farmer rieiuls should happen in one of liese city offices he would find out 11 two minutes that he had no wel- | ionic there, such as he would re- | :eive in a printing office at home, j Stand by your home paper—it ilands by you, und is ever ou the ‘ lookout for your interest. .

Elizabeth of England was one of t he most illus trious of modern sovereigns. Her rule over Great Britain certainly comprised the most brilliant litera ry age of the English-speaking peo ple. Her political acumen was certainly put to as severe tests as that of any other ruler the world ever saw. Maria Edgeworth was an old maid. It was this woman's writings that first suggosted the thought ot writing similarly to Sir Walter Scott. Her brain might well be called the mother of the Waverley novels. Jane l’ortcr lived and died an old maid. The children of her busy brain were “Thaddeus of Warsaw,” and “The Scottish Chiefs,” which have mov ed the hearts of millions with ex citement and tears. Joana Baillie, poet and play-writer, was one of ’em. Florence Nightingale, most gracious lady heroine of Inkertuon and Balaklava hospitals, has to the present written Miss before her name. The man who should marry her might well crave to take the name of Nightingale. Sister Dora, the brave spirit of English pest houses, whose story is as a helpful evangel, was the bride of the world’s sorrow only. And then what names could the writer and the reader add of those whom the great world may not know, but the world of the village, the church, the family and prize hey ond all words, —The Presbyterian.
