A MINNESOTA exchange tells a first
class story about a Wisconsin youth of
sixty summers, and his prospective
bride of an equal age, who had invited
in the minister, and at the last moment,
with all the guests present, and trunks
packed for the wedding tour, discovered
that they had no license. The story is
good, but somewhat marred by the fact
that a marriage license is not required
in Wisconsin.
ALEXANDRE MOLLER, a Russian coun
cilor of state, son of Gen. Moller and
nephew of the tutor to the Grand Dukes
Nicholas and Michael, has just died at
the age of 83. He himself, his brother
and sister, were all born deaf and dumb.
He was educated in the dumb institu
tion in St. Petersburg, rapidly learned
to read, and showed such ability that
he was first admitted into the imperial
chancery and afterwards into the coun*
cil of state.
A CONTINENTAL organization, having
for its object the assassination of all the
crowned heads of Europe, is said to
exist, with its headquarters at Geneva.
The piogramme is eimply to keep peg
ging away at the kings and emperors
until they are exterminated. The thrill
of horror which this information ought
to cause in all imperially-minded peo
ple is somewhat interfered with by the
reflection that the continental associa
tion has not yet, after five separate at
tempts, succeeded in killing a single
prince. One fact alone presents itself
to the American mind, and it is that
the society for killing purposes is not
worth a continental, and that loyalty or
divinity or good luck hedges a king
pretty effectua.lly.
THE difficulties of the Prince of Bul
garia are of a kind in which no foreign
advice can be of much use. Even if
his foreign relations were of the most
satisfactory character, he' still wduld
have to deal with that remarkable en
tity, the Bulgarian people. The great
draw-back of the passion of the Great
Powers for multiplying States is, that
the luckless miniatuie nationalities are
entirely thrown off their balance. In
no case has this been more true than
in that of Bulgaria, whose people are
so totally destitute of the preliminary
requirements of independent national
life. The Bulgarians are called upon
not merely to walk, but also to perform
ntricate gymnastic exercises. They
got a Constitution and an Assembly
and a complicated scheme of govern
ment before they acquired even the
simplest habits of self-management and
the most rudimentary accomplish
ments of civilization. The Bulgarians
have still to be educated, to acquire
the habit of municipal self-govern
ment, and to polish and civiliz9 them
selves in the most ordinary matters of
social decency. But all this takes a
great deal of time, and, to a great
extent, is absolutely repugnant to the
spirit and the genius of the people.
SOME three weeks ago the London
Times published an elaborate statistical
article showing that the total require*
ments of Great Britain for wheat for
consumption in the year ending Sept. 1,
1880, would be 24,000,000 quarters, or
192,000,000 bushels. The Times esti
mates the total supply of home grown
wheat out of the crop of 1879 at 5,990,
000 quarters, or 47,920,000 bushels, after
deducting the necessary amount for
seed, thus leaving the net requirements
for foreign wheat at 18,000.000 quarters,
or 148,000,000 bushels. From other
sources we learn that the total imports
of foreign wheat and flour into the
United KiLgdom from Sept.
1 to Nov. 8,
1879, have been as follows: Imports of
wheat from Sept.
1 to Nov. 8,14,264,367
cwt., from which deduct exports of 197,
577 cwt., leaving net imports of wheat
14,066,730 cwt. Imports of flour in
same time 2,178,142 cwt., from which
deduct exports of 31,737 cwt., leaving
net imports of 2,146,305 cwt. of flour,
the total net imports of wheat and
wheat flour being equal to 29,139,706
bushels of wheat. This leaves the total
requirements of Great Britain for for
eign wheat at 118,860,294 bushels to be
supplied in less than ten months from
Nov. 8 to Sept. 1.1880, or at the rate of
11,800,000 bushels per month.

IT was reported in political circles in
Washington on the 10th of December,
that the president has tendered to Sena
tor Edmunds, of Vermont, a seat on the
bench of the supreme court whenever the
resignation of Judge Hunt, of New York,
shall create a vacancy. There is no
doubt that Senator Edmunds will accept
the office, and that, when Judge Hunt's
resignation is deceived, Edmunds*
nomination will be immediately sent
to the senate. The circuit over
which Mr. Justice Edmunds will pre
side embraces the judicial districts of
Vermont, Connecticut, and Northern,
Southern, and Eastern New York.
Judge Hunt, although permanently dis
abled for further judicial service, is not
quite old enough, neither hag he been on
the bench long enough, to entitle him to
pay for life, but congress will undoubt
edly pass a bill placing him on the
retireu list. Of the confirmation of Sen.
Edmunds there cannot be much doubt.

Dear Hon. Hamilton Fish, Jr.,
have your letter of tbe 28th, now

to go to New York, I will inform yon aa soon as

THE following is recomended as a cure
for sleeplessness: ''Wet half a towel,
apply to the back of the neck, pressing
upward toward the base of the brain,
and fasten the dry half of the towel ov
er so as to prevent tbe too rapid exhal
ation. The effect is prompt and charm
ing, cooling the brain and inducing
calmer, sweeter sleep than any narcot
ic. Warm water may be used, though
most persons prefer cold. To those per
sons suffering from over excitement
of the brain, whether the result of brain
work or pressing anxiety, this simple
remedy is an especial boom."
One Experience from Many:
"I had been sick and miserable so long and had
caused my husband eo much trouble ana expense,
no one seemed to know what ailed me, that I was
completely disheartened and discouraged. In
thiBirame of mind I got a bottle of Hop Bitters
and used them unknown to my family. I Boon
began to Improve and gained so fast that my hus
band and family thought it strange and unnatural,
but when 1 tola them what helped me, they said
"Hurrah for Hop Bitters (long may they prosper,
for they have made mother well and ua happy."—
