Easiness office 8 Job rooms 169 In the New York Gazette of May 2, 1789 occurs the following concern ing the inauguration of George Wash ington, "The Scene on Thursday last was sublimely great beyond any descrip tive powers of the pen to do justice to How universal and how laudable the curiosity How sincere and how expressive the sentiments of respect and veneration! All ranks appear to feel the force of an expression that, was reiterated among the crowd Well us deserves it all!" Think of the columns of effusive praise which have followed recent in augurations and yet nothing has ever fceen more expressive, nothing con veyed more meauing than the simple state ment made concerning our first presid ent He deserves it all. A judge with nerve enough to re buke a jury for an excessive Verdict against a railroad company has at lam been found. He live3 in Youngs town, O., and he took occasion to &y that $20,000 as a balm for a triniui injury to a passenger was entirely io much reward tor the plaintiff and to much punishment for the defendant Jleaet the verdict aside- Hi3 ex ample might well be followed in flam age suits in general. Globe-Demo-orat TheBAEOO endorses the above. There certainly has been much injusiice done to railroads by juries in the pasi and the judge who has the courage to rebuke them, is doing a good act The custom of deciding against t. railroad in favor of any compiaiu-tnt. no matter how slight his injuries ma be, is outrageous and merely give. barnacles a chance to thrive without work. It is high time the jury system was done away with anyhow, a usually conducted, they are a help to injustice rather than a tribunal of jus tice. The first inauguration oi Washington in New York City marked the birth of our National Republic. Colouil and provincial America ceased to ex ist, and National America began The hope of success lay apparently n one man, revered and beloved- as no other man had been or ever will be, and upon the successful issue of the trust to which he was then solemnly devoted. What scene in history over tops or even equals the grandeur nd significance of that glorious consecra tion ? It is right, too, that as the first inaugural ceremony occurred in New York City, the centennial cele bration of that event should take place in the metropolis. The sculp tured figure of the illustrious hero and statesman which stands in that city, will be the central point of the commemorative demonstration. And could a more appropriate place be found ? The patriotic feelings aroused by the memory of the event have re sulted in material action for its proper observance, and the celebration of the anniversary will be of a National character a grand civic, military and naval demonstration, probably eclipsing the commemoration of any event which has heretofore occurred in our history. The following from the New York Wrld contains a lesson worth ponder ing over: Washington's first Inaugural, deliv ered at the old city hall on Wall street one hundred years ago, has not come -i . i i: i. u:- c. n i OOWn 10 us in nisiury ma jureweu address. Indeed, at the beginning of the first President's first term there could not have been much to say ex cept in the way of 'glittering geuera1 ites." Yet Washington's words, few as they were, are worth recalling and are suggestive in these days." After speaking of "the conflict of emotions with which he had heard the voice of his country, never listened to but with veneration and love, calling upon him to quit the retreat of his choice, made dearer by habit, age and declining health, to assume an office which might well awaken a distrust ful scrutiny of qualification in the wisest and most experienced, and su ficient to overwhelm with despair one inheriting inferior endowment from nature and unpracticed in the duties of civil administra tion," the President addressed himself to the immediate representatives of the people in Congress. The historian represents him as saying that it was hardly the proper time, with no oppor tunity as yet to become acquainted with the exact state of affairs, to exer cise his couststutional duty of recom mending measures to their considera tion; yet one subject he could not en tirely pass over that of amendments to the new Constitution. It was well worthy the most seri3us at tention of Congress whether, while care tuily avoiding every alteration which might endanger the benefits of a united and effective government, or which ought to await the lessons of exper ience reverence for the characteristic rights of freemen and regard for the public harmony might not suggest some provisions by which those rights might be still more impregnablv for tified and that harmony safely pro! mo ted. The Centennial Inauguration cere monies next week will be attended by the president of the United States and nis cabiuet, by senators and represen tatives in congress, by governors of spates aud others high in authority. Political leaders will be there, as they are at every demonstration where cap ital is to made and notoriety gained. Might they not all reflect with advantage on the words spoken by Washington from the balcony of the senate chamber in the old City Hall a hundred years ago ? How much do our millionaire senators, sitting in purchased seats and our representatives who are the servauts of corporations, reverence ihe rights of freemen? How do they labor to still more impregnably for tify those rights? What do our scrambling partizans and sectional giutor care about safely promoting the public harmony? The modest diffidence of Washington might well teach a useful lesson to the holders of all high public trusts. His simple, u jse fiah devotion might profitably be studied by legislators wnose duty to the people is at all times made sub servient to the exigencies of politics and the seductions of the lobyist and toe millionaire. Bringing Up the Baby. Every mother lias her own idea as to how to bring1 up her babies aright, and it is a. matter on which few agree. But wo often think that some mothers made a mistake in not treating their little ones as if they were reasoning creatures. Notice how pleased tiny little tots are when given some responsibility. As soon as they begin to toddle, if taught aright, they like to help mother by picking up or carrying some trifle for her or doing some similar act. Then is the time to begin training them to be real helpers. Of course, it often seems to be a real bother, for one may do things quicker without this hindering assistance. But it is a part of the child's education. Similarly, babyhood is none too early to begin teaching politeness, and the proper way is to be as polite to the baby as to any one else. People some times think that a child does not feel discourtesy we hold a contrary opinion. Some little slights that were not meant as such, offered in our ex treme childhood, are remembered to this day, aad all sensitive children suffer in the same way. Emily Louise Taplen. m A certain ireacher discoursing upon Bunyan and his works, caused a titter among his hearers by exclaim ing: 'In these days, my brethren, we want more I5uny:ins." Another cler gyman, pleading earncsity with his parishioners for the construction of a cemetery for their parish, asked them to consider the 4 'deplorable condition of 80,000 Christian Englishmen living without Christian burial.1' Still more curious was this clerical slip: A gentleman said to the minister: "When do you expect to see Deacon S. again?" "Never," said the reverend gentle man, solemnly. "The deacon is in Heaven." "I believe." said the traveler, "that I would have frozen to death one night last winter while crossing a spur of the Rocky Mountains but for a highwayman. I had no blankets and no buffalo robe, and was at the point of freezing when the stage was stopped and the kind-hearted robber, seeing my condition, covered me with a revolver." Brooklyn Eagle. FITS.

Que of the Hitherto Unwritten Romance of the Second Empire. The Marechal Niel is one of tha iloveliest roses of its kind, the noisette, and in its name and origin there is one oi the hitherto unwritten romances of the court of France in the Second em pire. In 1859, when the French army was sent to help King Victor Emman uel drive the Austrians out of Italy, the Third Army Corps was commanded by General Niel. This oflicer, as his name implies, came of one of thosft Irish noble families who emigrated to iFr&nce after the battle of the Boyne in 1690, as did the .MacMahons, the Fitz-James and others, who are now Irish in nothing but their names. General Niel had commanded and fought his corps with such eminent ability and distinguished courage, that when peace was made, with his coun tryman and friend, MacMahon, he was created a Marshal of France. It was well nigh autumn before General Niel was able to return to France. He had been terribly wounded, and had suf fered besides from the dreadful fever of the Italian marshes. For months' he was between life and death, with only his surgeon, who was his con stant companion, and a soldier servant, who proved to be an admirable nurse in his illness and convalescence. One day a peasant woman brought him a whole basket of wild roses from the Campagna region. General Niel had always been extremely fond of roses, and most of these were new to Mm, and thus served to amuse him un til they were withered. He observed, however, that one particular shoot had not faded and died like the others, but had grown into a beautiful green plant of perhaps tea inches in length. When ho looked to see why this one .had grown and the others faded, he found that a bit of the root had been cut away with the flower, which was of t palish-yellow hue. Scarcely know ing why, Niel determined to keep the shoot so curiously preserved. When he returned to Paris he placed the young shoot with an expert floricult urist, and next spring it bore four of the loveliest buds in the world, of a pale-lemon tinge, At that time Gen eral Niel was sent for to receive the highest military rank then known in France, the Grand Cross of the Legion, and his commission as Marshal of France, in presence of three Emperors and all the Kings in Europo worth nam ing. After the solemn ceremony was ended, and ho wore for the first time in that day the Grand Cross of the Legion of Honor, he went to the reception of the Empress who was splendid in her perfection of beauty and presented to her a curious yellow ish rose of perfect form and perfume, but different from any she had ever seen, and told her its story. "And so you have proved the truth, of what the old abbe used to say in his dreadfully tedious sermons at Pau about casting the bread on the waters," said the Empress (who, like Queen Elizabeth of blessed memory, "loved a fine man,") to the handsomest and most daring, as well as one of the ablest of the Marshals of the Second empire. "Dear me, but he was tedious, that good abbe," continued her Majes ty, with the softest look of retrospec tion in her lovely dark eves. "Now, ilonsleur le Marechal," said she, viva ciously, "I shall christen this rose for you." "Do so," said the Franco-Irish sol dier, bowing very low, but flashing at her a glance of profound admira tion so warm that it deepened her color a little as they stood alone, for, though the great salon of the place was crowded, no one dared interrupt a tete-a-tete, which she her self had allowed, between the Empress and the handsomest General of his day. Lightly putting the rose to her lip3, she said: "It is named the Marec ial Niel, for the soldier sans peur cl sasn reprocJic, as gallant in the salon as he is on the battlefield." This gracious speech went straight to the great soldier's Irish heart. "You will wear it to-night, Your Majesty, will you not. and afterward give it to me to keep, this happy rose?" "Monsieur le Marechal!" said the Empress, with great dignity. "I pray your forgiveness," he an swered. "No, no, I am not as angry as I ought to be," she replied; "but but people might hear," and with a Par thian glance she departed. Four days thereafter Colonel Lewal, then Niel's chief of staff, but not long eince Minister of War for the French Repnblic, observed his chief take a surreptitious rosebud out of an en velope ho had just received, and lock it up in a private drawer.

DWELLING IN CLIFFS. The Queor Domiciles cf an Alaska Tribe ol K-quim:iui. In pre-historic times, human beings often dwelt in dens and caves of the earth, as much for safety from their numerous enemies as for shelter. Cave towns were even excavated in the sides of cliffs with what must have been, considering the rude tools employed, an enormous expenditure of labor. The evidences of this custom are nu merous in Asia Minor, in Italy, and in our own Southwest Territories. To day the most notable instance of cave houses, on this hemisphere, at least, is to be seen on what is termed King's Island, to the Southeast of Cape Prince of Wales in Behring's Sea, on the west coast of Alaska. This small island is an elevated ta ble land of basalt Its shores consist of nearly vertical cliffs, fronting the sea, and ranging in height from fifty to seven hundred feet. The island is inhabited by a tribal family of the Mahlemoots, or Esquimaux, about two hundred in number, who gained a sub sistence by walrus-hunting, seal-hunt-ingand whaling. They pursue the creatures in kyaks or canoes, which they are very expert in launching through the surf, and navigating in rough wa ter. The summer houses of tho islanders are so many little platforms attached to the face of the sea-cliffs, and com posed of whale rib bones, or shoulder blade bones, fastened by thongs of sinew to largo pegs of bone driven into int; lmersuces oi tne uasaic. j.ne witnesses had they ever seen any worn platforms are guarded around the out- en entering the place. They declared er side by a rail, and are large enough tney hld not. "That settles it," said for the family to lodge upon. They the judge, "the man is convicted. An thus serve at once the purposes of a jce cream saloon without women is an habitation and a sentry-box, from impossibility." which the hunters may keep a look out for walrus and seals.

Not even a bird, a bank swallow or an eagle could have a more airy habita tion. Like the eagle, the King's Islanders have placed thir eyries on the cliffs, to serve as lookouts for their FS? - , -.-x The oddity of those singular habita- tions does not end here, however, since escape the winter storms the islanders have excavated caves in the shattered and seamed basalt in manv case3 caverns of considerable depth and size. During eight months of tho year these cave dwellings constitute comfortable retreats from the inclem ent weather and also serve as store houses fo the rude wealth of the fam ily. There are, it is stated, forty or fifty such cave-houses, corresponding to the number of families and to the platforms of summer. In some cases the platform-house is at the mouth of the cave-house, so that tho shift from summer to winter quarters can do easily and speedily effected. It is , difficult to conceive of tho character of such a life, on the face of a crag, with tho ocean surges beating far below, and tho open sky all around. What must be the thoughts and ideas of a child, born and nurtured amidst such strange urroundings! Youit's Companion. Care of Faun Machinery.

A bird that builds its ne3t in a shel tered place exercises control over nature, in its degree, quite analogous to the work of a human architect. "The foxes have holes, and tho birds of the air have nests." How does the fox get its hole, or the bird its nest? They make them for their purposes, and this is certainly control over naturo to that extent. How does tho fox sup;:;rt his family if he has no cont ol over nature? Do hens and eMekeno run hit his hole and ask to be ealea? l)v. Hopkins does not seem ever to have hrard of the way in which a tribe of monkeys prepare to rob a corn-field. Lot us describe it. When they get ready to start on their expedition, an old monkey, the leader of the tribe, with a staff in his hand, so as to stand upright more easily, marches ahead on two legs, thus being more elevated than the others, so as to see signs of danger more readily. The rest follow him on all-fours. The leader advances slowly and cautiously, care fully reconnoitering in all directions, till the party arrives at the corn-field. He then assigns tho sentinels to their respective posts. All being now in readiness, the rest of the tribe ravage and eat to their hearts' content. When I they retire, each one carries two or three ears of corn along, and from this j provision the sentinels are regaled on . arrival at their lair.

FATHER AND MOTHER. Two Noble and Tender Word3 That Shoml4 Be Oftener Used. Two of the most beautiful, dig nified and noble words in the English languish seem to be falling into disuse. They are father and mother. They are used always by Catholics in refer ence to their priests and to the super iors of their nunneries; but in home Ufa they are being supplanted by all kinds of baby words. It is well enough for children who are just learning to talk to have some pet names for parents, and one does not object to the affect-, tionato use of 'mamsy," 'mammy," and such words in private; but even in the mouths of little children there is no word more loving and precious than "mother." Now it- is common, for grown men and women who are themselves mothers and perhaps elderly, to habitually speak of thei? 44pahpah" and "mahmah" accenting strongly the first syllable of words. These ugly terms are less prim and conventional than the 4 'papa" and "mamma" many other women prefer, but they are not pleasing to the ear. "Pa and ma," "paw and maw," 4poppy and mommy," are among the fanciea of other adults; and one Hears these names till one longs for the good olc word, father and mother. Imagine the commandment revised to "Thou shalt honor thy pahpah and thy mah mah," or the fine old hymns changed to ,4Papa of me and all mankind," or "Pahpah in thy mysterious presence kneeling." Think of a Mahmah in Is- rael; or of necessity being the Mahmabr of invention; or of speaking your mam ma-tongue, being gifted with mamma--wit, or of loving your papa-land. Let children have a father and mother, and let no household be deprived of these strong and tender names. Wor cester Spy.
