Glad to think that the Mirror did such a

" There is nothing strange about the strike

Some of the inconsistencies of life are
aptly illustrated by the relations of Col.
McClure, of the Philadelphia Times, with
the Lancaster Intelligencer. Day after day
has the Intelligencer denounced the Colonel
in its editorial columns, but only the other
day the Colonel appeared before the
Supreme Court at Harrisburg,
champion of the editors of the Lancaster
sheet. The editors, Messrs. Steinman and
Hensol, are also attorneys at-law, but they
recently dismissed from the bar for
reflecting on the Court in the columns of
their paper. Then, in their dilemma, they
flew to the Colonel for aid, and he made a
great long speech in their behalf and pub
lished it all in the Times.

Hayden, according to the Morning News,
eloped with Miss Courtney the other day,
and the reader of the Morning News had
to wade through something like a half
column of " gush " before he could get at
the facts in the case. For instance : " The
pseudo-horticulturist, in all of nature's
pharmacy that grew in such prodigality
about him, may have had some philter,
some potion all powerful with

unpleasantness in the party ranks, an in

The ability of the human organism
to either feast or fast is well illustrated by
an agreeable episode in the prosaic career
of that truly great and good simpleton, Dio
Lewis. Like a great many other well-meaning
people, Lewis has an idea that the only thing
a man is created for is the practice of economy
in his financial affairs. This, according to
this school of philosophy, is the sole aim of
his existence. But it is amusing to note
how quickly people's ideas of the duty of
economy change when some one else foots
the bill. Dio had economy down to such a
fine point that he lived on ten cents a day,
and had completely forgotten the ingredi
ents of a square meal. One day a friend,
curious to know if he could eat like other

" What has become of our militia
panics?" asked a citizen yesterday. He
wanted to know why they didn't parade
around the streets and create a public inter
est in themselves. Well, now, that is a good
idea ; especially as all the members of our
militia companies arc enormously wealthy
and have nothing to do but walk around
town. And then it must be so very pleasant
to hear people remark : " Oh, they are only
playing soldier ; they wouldn't fight." Now,
two Wilmington companies are
among the best in the country, and have
made themselves so by their own exertions,
any such remarks, to say the least, are
decidedly uncharitable.
The Washington correspondent of the
Philadelphia Times, said lately that the Re
publicans had gotten hold of some awful
facts regarding Hancock, and that they were
to be used by Secretary Schurz, in his speech
at Indianapolis, and predicted that the
speech would be one of the greatest politi
cal documents in circulation during the cam
paign. How anxiously the Democrats waited
for this speech, with fears that the immacu
late pedestal, upon which their favorite had
been placed, would be ruthlessly overthrown,
by the " awful facta " shown up in Schurz's
scholarly sentences, and enliven with his
cool sarcasm. The speech has been made
and the worst said about Hancock, was, that
he was not a statesman. The little experi
ence that the General has had in that branch
of the government has shown that he has
several of the fundamental principles down
very fine, and something more than that
will have to be done, before any great effect
will be made throughout the country.

An Opinion of Weight.
From Every Evening, of July 19.
The Sunday Mirror improves with each
number, and is really a first-class news
paper, worthy to take rank with the best of
its Sunday contemporaries of larger cities.
Its copious and well prepared telegraphic
is a feature that is to be found in very
few of the regular Sunday papers of any
place, while its general and loCSil news, fresh
and attractively presented, supplies a need
that has long been felt in Wilmington. Edi
torially the Mirror is able and discriminat
ing, and altogether the paper is deserving of
the highest success.

asked him to ride, and soon led the conver

always carried a selection of tracts in his
pocket and made it a point to give one to
whoever he met. Suddenly thinking of the
tracts, he thrust his hand into his pocket, at
the same time exclaiming to his companion :
"Are you prepared to die ?" "Be jabers I'm
not," was the response, as the peddler
sprang from the vehicle and dashed down

frightened imagination fraught with horrible
visions of highway robbery and murder.

The Pride of a Child.
► A St. Louis paper tells a touching story of
rcchool life. It illustrates both the longin g of
fchirdren to appear as well as their shoolmates
and the mental sufferings incident to poverty.
In one of the St. Louis public schools many of
the children who came from a distance
accustomed to bring a lunch, and thus
long walk home for dinner. They generally
ate it together and had a merry time.
Among those who stopped, one of the
teachers noticed a little girl who
brought any lunch, but who looked wistfully
at her playmates
noonmeal. But one day the girl brought her
bundle also, wrapped in paper. At noon
she did not go with the others,but remained
at her desk as if preferring to eat alone.
The teacher thinking her unsocial,advised
her to go to the lunch-room with her play
mates, and walked toward her to take her
bundle. But the little girl bursting into
sobs, said :
