has been appointed Warden at the

expire on next Saturday, the same day
that Commissioner Hartford Is to be
succeeded by Henry B. Morrow, and
on that date Mr. Rice will be induct

time receive the title of '-Captain,'
that title being a part of the perqul
sites of the office. Mr. Morrow wil
receive the title of "Colonel," since
the higher rank always goes with the
office of commissioner. In fact, every
body at the penitentiary wears a mil

accounts for the numerous applicants
for places there.

America Boiled Down.
America has from time to time
been accused of being unduly pom
pous that she claims all in sight,
the largest, sinalIest,longe8t, short
est, richest, most beautiful, as the
case may be, of everything, and
that she the United States,f that
is has even appropriated to her
individual use a designation to
which Canada and Mexico .had
equal title "America."
But then, after all, doesn't she
back up most of her claims de
liver the goods? Of course, it
might be argued that a lace hand
kerchief might be worth more
than a blanket ; but a citizen feels
that he at least has breathing space
when he reflects that Uncle Sam
dooryard embraces 3,026,789 miles
square a slight increase, by the
way, over the 827,844 square

miles 01 law. in that same year
of 1800 the population was 5,308,
483, a number which would scarce
ly be missed from the 84,154,009
of the present day. We don't fee
crowded in most sections now with
"Zi.l inhabitants to toe square

a bit lonely with 6.41 at the begin
ning of the nineteenth century.
And when it comes to the al
mighty dollar, there is where
America certainly shines: She is
worth $107,104,211,071 in real or
or personal property, or $1,310.11
per capita. , If you haven't got
yours, try to save it up out of the
$2,736,646,628 in circulation,
which is $32.32 for every member
of the family. If you are partic
ular you may choose it out of the
$668,655,075 of gold ; the $188,-
630,872 of silver; the $516,561,840
of gold certificates ; the $471,520,

$548,001, 238of national banknotes,

It is true that there is an inter
est-bearing debt of $895,159,140,
... t . ... .
tne annual interest on which is
$23,248,064 ; but no one worries
much about that, when it amounts
only to 28 cents a year to the cit
izen and the peanut crop promises
to be good. Besides, certain prov
ident members of the community
have deposited $4,055,873,637 in
national banks, and 8,027,192 have
put $3,299,544,601 in the saving
Then there are the farmers.
There are 10,438,219 of therewith
5,739,657 farms worth $20,514,
001,838, the products of which are
worth $3,764,177,706, and who
feed not only themselves and the
rest of the 84,000,000 Americans,
but send 117,718,657 bushels of
wheat, to say nothing of 13.919,
048 barrels of flour to foreigners.
The foreigners pay $62,061,856 for
the corn, and $28,757,517 and $59,
106,869 for the wheat and flour.
That the National Government
will be able to keep up the pay
ment of interest on the public
debt without having to call on the
individual citizen for his 28 cents,
is evident when it is considered
that although the net ordinary ex
penses of the federal . machine
amount to $544,746,223, there is
an income of $594,454,122.
That our "infant industries" are
at least promising babes, is evi
denced by the fact that there are
wheels going round in 216,202
manufacturing establi s h m e n t s
which turn out goods to the sum
of $14,802,147,087. That there
were a few sickly youths, how
ever, is proved by the fact that
10,682 passed away last year, for
which there was mourning to the
tune of $119,201,515.
We always were a "scrapping
lot, and have always been willing
to pay for it. For the contests
already held we have paid $3,459,
860,311 in pensions, and are pay
ing $141,034,562 a , year now, to
say nothing of the $117,946,692 to
the army and $110,474,264 to the
navy those are their yearly sal

Americans seem fond of riding,
and for this purpose aud to haul
her freight operate some 217,341
miles of railroads. Of this oppor
tunity for rapid shifting of scenery
745,447,671 citizens took advan
tage last year, conveyed in 30,777
cars. The freight hauled one mile
amounted to 187,375,621,537 tons,
which required 1,767,657 cars. If
these freight cars were coupled
into one train it would make
very neat belt for the earth at the
equator. We had 23 miles of rail
road in 1830.
We appear to write a few more
etters in these days than in 1800 ;
at least at that time there were
only 903 postoffices, against 65,600
at the present time, which bring
in receipts of $167,932,783, as
against $280,804 for that ancient
year. The expenses of operating
the postal service are somewhat in
excess of. the receipts, being $178,
440,779, but this isn't bad, consi
enng the fact that 478,711 miles
of . post routes are covered, and
that a letter might travel the whole
distance for two cents.
But even the mail doesn't move
quickly enough for the American,
so he sends 96,987,140 telegrams a
year, or something over one to

i Whooping Cough. ;
This disease commences very much
the same as an ordinary cold, but may
soon be Identified by its peculiar
cough. The principal danger is from
the accumulation of tough, tenacious
mucus in the throat, choking the child,
or the prolonged and violent cough
ing, rupturing the tiny air cells of the
lungs. When neglected complications
arise. That is, it leads to other and
more dangerous diseases, convulsions,
pneumonia, etc., which often results
fatally. ''Coussen's Honey of Tar"
will keep the the cough loose and the
expectoration easy, allay the Irrita
tion and tickling in the throat, mak
ing the fits of coughing lefs violent
and less frequent. The reason this
remedy has bad such phenomenal suc
cess in the treatment of "whooping
coughs is that the manufacturers of
of Coussen's Compound Iloney of Tar
are the sole proprietors of the process
of manufacturing Castaolne, a power
ful alkaloid obtained exclusively from
Castanea Americana, or the American
chestnutleaf. This almost speclflcrera
edy for whooping cough, taken from
the chestnut leaf and added to other
valuable medicinal agents: -hoar-hound,
wild cherry, squills, blood root,
mullein, tulu, honey, tar, etc., makw
