DESItY Elect the entire democratic town ship ticket. Sila? P. Carpenter has just been elected town treasurer of Richford, Vt., for the o'Jth consecutive year. IIarkt It. Simmuns' nomination for city treasurer was an esjieeially wise one. lie is making a splendid can vass. The democrats have never had a stronger aldermanic ticket than they have this year. The nominees are good men and winners, every one of Ihcm. KisfiiMANN is striking terror to the Knox crowd in the campaign he is making. His quiet, earnest, business-like manner is wiuning him ad mirers and supporters daily. A Paris astronomer says that on Good Friday next (April 12) the heavenly bodies which gravitate round the sun will be in exactly in the same position thoy occupied the dav Christ died on the cross. On" the clerkship the business man should apply the situation to himself. As between Huesing, who has been tried and whose ability and fitness are known, and I'ladel, how long would one hesitate in the employ ment of an accountant? Kixxer and I.arkin will be the next assistant supervisors. The public can only have its rights respected in the board by defeating the two who arc running for reelection as a vindi cation of their course with reference to ISteve Collins and other matters. Sl'RlXfiriKLl Kcgistek: If Pull man did not furnish two or three sleeping cars free to the members of the legislature a bill might be passed that would enable the peuple to ride in sleepers at a reasonable rate. Iut as long as Pullman will furnish his cars free to' the members, and the members accept them, it is diffi cult to sec how reform in this matter can be brought about. The country has a new supervis ing architect of the treasury, or, to speak more uuderstandingly, a new supervising architect of public buildings. His name is Aiken, and he hails from Cincinnatti. and fills the vai-ancy caused by the forced resignation if Jermiah 0Kourke. of New Jersey. The salarv is $1,- 5K per annum, and there is a great deal of perplexing work to be done. IIori: to allav the feeling that exists in the Seventh ward over the turning down Iljnrv Holland re ceived iu the city-township conven tion, the Union attributes to Mr. Holland a prediction that the repub- lican ticket will get 130 majority in the ward, and challenges any other ward to equal the record that will be made. The Union is having a hard time attempting to patch up the breaches that have grown out of the convention proceedings, but votes are not made through wagers or blulT. anil the reports from oth er wards that indicate sm pretty big figures" will not be found agree able to the Union's side. The big tigtires will all be on the other side of the tally sheet. Attorney Cienrral'e Optaltna. In reply to numerous queries, ap ropos of the approaching election. Assistant Attorney General Xewell renders the following opinions from the office of Attorney General Molo ney of the state of Illinois: But one assessment is made in the state, and that one by the town ship assessors. Upon this assess ment all municipal, township, state, school, county, highway and other taxes are based. The assessment is returned to the county clerk: he ex tends the taxes upon this assessment. State taxes arc certified to him by the secretary of state to !w extended upon the same assessme-i. Sooth er assessments arc made. The state board of equalization sometimes in. create, soire'imes decreases these assessments. "The Australian ballot law applies to township elections, which must be held nnder that provision. Parties most file nomination papers in due time; if this is omitted, their choice for town officers cannot be voted for. "Town clerks cannot be compelled to file nomination papers unless pre sented nnder the Australian ballot law provision. "Judges of election mnst publish in two papers, if there be two, in the county, representing the largest and next largest political party vote cast at the last previous election a list of all nominations made by law to be voted for. 'One person cannot hold the office of justice of the peace end supervisor at the same time: they are inconsis tent, and both members of the same town board. "The fact that a person may have his washing done in a certain place does not make bim a resident or voter there; washing hastothing to do with his vote. Some voters have no washing done at all, and are legal voters." These are all important and should be borne well in mind, especially so as to the one with reference to the publication of ballots as required by law. "HE OLO POLICEMAN. lie Kis IIow to I'se Elertrirlty aa HZeaoa of Personal Comfort.

Mr. Drass Buttons beat the combination and beat it pretty thoroughly. Ho had been rath er behind time in his hourly communi cations with in-aiicurters, and his su ps ritirs determined to teach him a les son Accordingly he was sent to travel a lonely, isolated post, which had a sol itary patrol box situated jnst alongside a deserted but that had once been ntib ize-d as a toolhoase by a railroad cor poration. It didn't require many hours' presence on the part of the disciplined copper for him to discover that ho had been given the best of the deal in this particular transfer, and he immediately set about arranging a scheme whereby he could benefit by his newly acquired advantages. The much craved boon that bo sought was light naps. He had long ago tried the plan of an alarm clock set to go off a few minutes before pulling time, but tired nature had iu each instance as serted itself, and his station hud failed to hear from bim. Now conditions were different, fur he hail found just what ho needed to carry out the clover ruso ho had concocted, lwnnniiig alongsido the ties; rted : hanty were two electric liht wires fully charged with a current of electricity, and to these the valiant watchdog pinned his faith. First ho tnco moro produced his long ago discarded alarm clock after rcmov ing tho gong from the top. Next he broke away tint glass face, and after making sure that the clock was ou time with his watch ho made a connection with tho electric light wires by means of two small pieces of copper wire. Ono of these ho wound around tho minute hand of tho clock, arid the other lie firm' ly fx-tcued to the framework of the timepiece just over tho figures that in dicated his hour for pulling up. Then to one of the wires be fastened two more pieces of copper, which be wound about either of his hands. This done. tho wily policeman Etretched himself out on tho floor and enjoved the desired nap, safe in tho knowledge that at the proper moment tho meeting of tho two wires on the clock would convey to him a shock that was bound to waken him, so he conld salute his station through tho patrol box.

Frankness is sometimes an embar rassing quality, as would appear by the experience of a Camden, Me., stove dealer, who was trying to sell a "hot oven" article to a prospective purchaser. Noticing a citizen coming along he said: "Ah. here's Mr. De crow, be has one of these stoves, and he'll tell you all about it How do yon like that stove, and bow dors the hot oven work?''

Wesiriac Class Eye. It is a fallacy to suppose that people who wear cork legs and glass eyes are indifferent to their personal appearance. They are often vainer than ordinary in dividuals. A rich man, for instance, who is obliged to wear an artificial eye will wear three different eyes every day an eye for morning, when the pupil is not very large; an eye for afternoon, when the pupil is smaller; an eye for evening, whea the pupil has extended to its full size. A Loudon eyemaker, who gave this information, said he made about an equal proportion of glass eyes for men and women. Some people keep quito a stock in their possession.
