There is a prosprect that the South
Carolina issue with the federal govern
ment will be peacefully adjusted in the
courts, and that the nullification State
will not again be brought in collision
with the union.
An exchange says: ''It is just awfully
discouraging! Just about the time water
melons begin to come in the poor man
has to scrape together every cent he can
raise to pay the tax on his dogs. Why
can't this dog tax be collected some time
in'the winter?"
The Duke of Montpensier was opposed
io the embalming of his daughter, the
late Queen of Spain, and she was not em
balmed. The King of Spain himself
closed bis wife's eyes and then took her
wedding ring, and for a time would see
none but an old servant.
A very successful mei chant in a large
New England city says: "I always ad
vertise most when times are dull. In
busy seasons it is only necessary to keep
ny name before the public I am sure to
get my share of the spontaneous traffic.
But when business is light, then I ful-
iBiinate my broadsides of special bargains
and then 13 just the time when special
^bargains are sought for."
iDr. Polak, physician to the Shah, gives
some particulars of that potentate's hab
its. He ordinarily rises at sunrise and
performs his devotions, after which he
-spends some time in his harem. Then
lie receives his Ministers. After that he
takes a walk and inspects his fish ponds
and aviaries, or goes out hunting, of
which pastime he is passionately fond.
He is ordinarily very simple in his dress,
and wears little jewelry, but the dagger
he always carries is richly studded with
The Russians aie preparing to leave
the vicinity of Constantinople, they are
not ready to go however, until the Turks
have evacuated Varna. If they did not
ttake Constantinople, they have forced the
"Turks to give up all the fortresses on the
rDanube. in Bulgaria, and on the Black
tSea that guard the approaches to it. In
Asia the key citadels ..of Kars, Ardahan,
etc., have all passed into the hands of the
Russians, and this with the assent of
England, the vaunted champion of the
integrity of the Ottoman empire.
Quakers are known to be unusually
long-lived folk. The average of the 308
members of the Society of Friends who
died in Great Britain and Ireland last
year was over filty-tbree years, and the
average deaths to population was about
fifteen per thousand. The number of
deaths of children under one year was
only nineteen, and the highest number in
any decade of life was in that which in
cluded those whose ages were between
seventy and eis_hty. The next highest
numoer fifty-five, died between eighty
and ninety."
The revision of the New Testament is
almost completed, and will probably be*
presented to Convocation in England
next year. Already, it is nearly all print
ed, the two Universities having given
.20,000 for the privilege of printing it, of
twhich they pay 2,090 yearly. Bishop
3lllicott, the Chairman of the Revisers,
who has presided for six hours daily for
four days every three weeks, is said never
to have once lost his temper or failed to
carry his colleagues with him. The re
vision of the Old Testament will require
-about three years longer.
"The robbing of graves for the use of
medical colleges is becoming one of the
most ciymg sins, as it is one of the most
heinous crimes of modern times. The
developments of the past year, numerous
and many, have served to startle the put*
iic. Many a college professor, whose
outside character is fair and honorable, is
ibut a whit^d sepuicher, whose shelves are
iull of dead men's bones, for he connives
iat body snatching, by concealing it,wbile

No event has so impressed the public
mind with the* essential danger and
Ticiousness of socialism', as the attempt
-of the assassin Nobeling to take the life
tof the Emperor William of Germany. In
the light of this and other events it be
comes more and more obvious that the
Socialists are waging acrusade against all

show that Nobejing was but the instru

The starting rumor of Justice Miller's
dangerous condition yesterday caused
much excitement and an almost constant
stream of calleis at his residence. The
truth is that the gentleman has under
gone an operation, known among sur
geons as a capital one, but was, at a late,
hour last evening, doing better even than
could be hoped or expected. He had
been suffering for a considerable time
with stones in the bladder, and though
the tamily physician Dr. J. C. Riley, had
done all for the case that lay in the phy
sician's power, it lately became evident
iiat radical means would have to be
adopted to eflect a cure.
Atter much consultation and corre
spondence the Justice oetpjfnined to sub
rnit to an operation at the hands of Or. A
P. Smith, of Baltimore. Judge Miller at
one time comtemplated going to England

means of chloroform and ether, the later
al operation of lithotomy was performed
by Dr. Smith, assisted by other physi
cians. Mr. Miller was quickly restored
to consciousness, and bore the subsequent
treatment with great fortitude. Dr. Smith
stayed with him all night, and left him

The twentieth annual fair of the Minne
sota State Agricultural Society, to be
held at the lair grounds in St* Paul, the
first week in.September, promises 0 be
in all respects most creditable to the
State, and to the officers at present man
aging the affairs of this important State
society. In entering upon the prepara
tions for the forthcoming exhibition,
Mr. Geo. R. Pinch, of the great dry goods
nouse of Auerbach, Finch, Culbertson &
Co., was elected to the responsible posi
tion of President. To assist Mr. Finch,
Messrs. D. W. Ingersoll, Hon. Wm.
Fowler and Hon. Sam E. Adams, weio
elected Vice Presidents. R. Judsonl
secretary, and Geo. Culver, treasurer,were
retained in their important positions^
These, with an executive committee com
posed of Messrs. Ja McHeuch, A.
Fridley, J. S. Harris, F. J. Whitlock, A.
Bown and E. C. Ingalls, constitute tl-o
working force of the society. How well
each one, and especially the president
and secretary, hsve performed this work,
the great interest that has been aroused
throughout the State and northwest in
the success of the approaching exhibi
tion, and the immense number of attrac
tionb that have been secured, tells most
The State Agricultural Society is em
phatically a State institution, and its
success is therefore a matter in which
every citizen is interested. It is through
this society that the advance Minnesora i&
making in agriculture, in manufactures,
in the improvement of s'ock, and in all
the various in ustries that go to maKe up
this busy, every-day world.is made known
to the people of the country at large. It
will theietore be a matter ot general con
gratulation to the people ot the State that
the twentieth annual fair is to be such a
faithful reflex of the wonderful develop
ment of Minnesota, the Empire State of
the Northwest.
Although the harvest time has not been
so full of promise as was expected, the
exhibition of the agricultural products ot
the State is to be in all respects most
creditable. In addition to the exmbits
made by individual farmers, the differ
ent railroads centering in St. Paul will
make an extensive display of the pro
ducts of the soil along their respective
lines. The show of blooded horses, draft
and roai, fine bred cattle, sheep, swine,
etc., will be superior to anything ever be
fore seen in the Northwest. The Minne
sota Horticultural Society will make a
large display of plants and flowers. A
massive machineiy building has been
erected, where several of the most impor
tant manufacturing industries of the
State will be carried on daily. A build
ing has been specially erected in which
the manner of making sugar and syrups
from the amber sugar cane will be
carried on everv day ot the fair. An at
tractive programme of turf sports has
been arranged for every day with
such liberal pures as to secure the at
'endanceoi the most noted flyers in the
country. The especial feaiuie ot the
exhibition will be the presence if Rarus,
the king of t'ie turf, and the wonderful
Gieat Eastern.
There is also an almost innummerable
array of special attractions, including
Dr. W. Carver and Oapt. Borgardus,
the champion rifle and wing-shots of the
world, who will give daily exhibitions of
their wonderful skill. A great bench
show of dogs, under the auspices of the
Minnesota Kennel Club will be in prog
ress in a building specially erected for
that purpose, dogs being brought from
all parts of the Union and others direct
from England to compete for the prizes
A party of gentiemen from the Eng
lish colony at Fairmont, Martin county,
noted for their prowess and skill in horse
manship and in the hunting field, have
kindly consented to attend the exhibition
with their stud of hunters and kennel of
hounds and will give exhibitions of Eng
lish field sports, genuine fox hunting with
full pack of hounds, en ss-country riding,
hurdle racing &c. The hunt will wear
the typical red coat and complete hunt
ing costume, and mounted upon their
highboed "bang'' tailed hunters following
the '-noble pack" in full cry, will be an
exhibition never before seen in "these
parts" and worth a days travel to wit
For the especial delight of the little
ones Col. John Bishop, of Beloit, Wis.,
breeder of Shetland ponies is to give
daily exhibition with a stud of thirty or
forty trained trick ponies.
Added to the above and many other
attractions. President Hayes and mem
bers of his official household, will be in
attendance, and address the people. The
buildings have been more than doubled
in their capacity to accommodate the
unparalled rush of exhibitors. A new
railroad track has been laid to the
grounds, and half hourly trains of
splendid passenger coaches will run to
and from the grounds. Arrangements
have been made with the hotels and
private families for the accommodation
of visitors, at moderate rates, and the
reilroads will sell tickets at half fare. I
short nothing has been left undone to
make the twentieth annual fair of the
Minnesota Agricultural Society, a pattern
for all fgture exhibitions of the kind.
To the credit of the people of Niagara
Falls be it said that they allow their vis
iters enough money to get out of town
with. Such was not their habit four or
five years ago. But things have changed
mightily at the falls of late years, and a
man can now enjoy the sublime attrac
tion of the vicinity without being haunted
with the thought of bankruptcy as the
probable price of his entertainment.
