Pakis has a new institution that is popular. It is an establishment on a main boulevard where, by paying half a franc (10 cents), one can wash his hands, bav his boots blacked, his coat brushed, write letters, read all the leading Cincin nati and English newspapers, consult a reference library, and use a telephone. The Chicago Jhrn'd rails attention to the probability of Gov. Rusk, of Wiscon sin, beini: a prominent candidate for the republican presidential nomination in 1885, inasmuch as it looks as if he will sweep things high and dry in the badger state this year. Yes, it might be neces sary to do something of that sort to keep Wisconsin in line, but if the Domination gets away from the spacious maw of Jim Blaine, it is not likely that Jack Logan will let it go scurrying across suckerdom without making a desperate effort to cap ture it. HissinH' Iieloure. Considering the moderate salary he re ceives, there is no government official i well ki:own as Col. Higgins, the ap poiutment elerk of the treasury as well as the terror of the mugwumps. Almost everything he says finds wide circulation. The Washington Critic a day or two ago printed the following very interesting disclosures made by Col. Higgins to one of the representatives of that paper: '"Tell the civil-service commissioner, ' said Appointment Clerk Higgins today, 'that 1 don't care if they make me wait until Christmas tor a batch of appoint incuts." This was in reply to a telephone message that, byau oversight, the com missiouer could not make certain selec tions before next Monday While in this humor, the Critic representative inter viewed the appointmentclerk, from whom it was ascertained that he had been very carefully scrutinizing the list of employes with a view to recommending a number of discharges. "Here is a most flagrant case that came under my notice today," continued Mr. Higgins, showing how patronage is abused. An $ 1,800 clerk in the treasury turns out to be a retired naval officer, drawing $ 70 a month in addition to a pension of $72, and I think he would never be missed if his place should be taken away from him and given to a more worthy man. Another case is that of a chief of bureau who draws $3,600 him self and has sons and relatives in office who bring the total receipts from the government offices they hold, up to $9 180. Then, too, I have discovered cases w here husband and wife are borne on the rolls, the woman under her maiden name, both living together under the same roof. Since it has been ascertained that I was engaged in investigating such cases it has been comical to see the aversion suspected couples have for each other's society. All these matters will be brought to the attention of the secretary and it would not surprise me in the least if an order was shortly issued vigorously enforcing the regulation prohibiting the employ ment of two of a family in the depart ments." The xt eonErrs.. From the New York Sno. The elections which will determine the political character of the Fiftieth congress Hnd perhaps forecast the result of the next presidential contest, are close at hand. What is likely to be the out come of this fall's campaign? The republican majority in the present senate is six. The loss of three seats hy that party in the pending struggles would lie tiie senate, giving the republicans SW members and the democrats 38. The loss of four republican seat3 wouid place the democrats in a majority of two in the next senate, unless the republicans cap ture some of the democratic seats. Where in this portion of the country, can the democrats reasonably hope to make gains ? Edmunds and Hale are landed in the sen ate for another term, hut Hawh-y, of Connecticut. Miller, of Sew York, and hewell, of New Jersey, are yet to puss through the breakers. Will they, or some republican substitutes, safely reach the shore? There is a fair fighting chance for the democrats in each state, with bright prospect for winning in New Jersey. The republicans will make desperate exertions to save these three seats, for if they slip from them the party may find itself in & minority in both branches of the Fiftieth congress. The democrats of the three states owe it to their political associates elsewhere to nominate able and popular candidates for the legislature. In this emergency weak men, with feeble claims to consideration, should stand out of the way. In 18N4 the democrats elected a major ity of 43 to the present bouse. To over come thfs in the next congress the repub licans must gain 22 members in this fall's campaign. They will find this a difficult feat to accomplish. However, greater changes lhan this have occuired since the republican parly was feiunded. In each such instance the coming storm was more clearly indicated by premonitory warn ings than any that now appear in the political sky. Where in this region do the republicans propose to begin to make the twenty-two gains? New England sends four democrats to the present house two from Massachusetts and two from Connecticut. Dovering and Lynn, democrat and greenbacker, defeated Lodge, republican, by a plurality of only 2115; and the republicans boast that they will now capture that seat. Seymore, democrat, was chosen in the western dis trist of Connecticut by a plurality of only 152. The republicans talk of beating their opponents there this year. But they should not forget that they carried the Hartford district in 1884, by a plur ality of barely 304, and may lose it in November. The prospect of republican gains in New England, therefore, is not brilliant. The New York delegation in this congress stands 17 democrats and 17 republicans; With one or two eaceptioM the demo crats elesttd lhc!f member by msjomlw so large that nothing but extreme apathy or culpable quarreling or bad nominations can now reduce them, or at most, put the districts to nazzard. Spriggs, dem ocrat, carried Oneida and Lewis by a plurality of 837. and the republicans now seem to look for success on a field which has been fruitful of factional fights in both parties for many a year. On the other hand, the republicans will doubtless bear in mind that they beat Dan Lock wood in the Buffalo district by the mea gre plurality of 167 votes. Can the re publicans reasonably expect to gain even one member in this slate? Is not the prospect daiker for them in New Jersey? So far from sustaining losses there, the democrats are proposing to carry one of the present republican district. The Pennsylvania delegation consists of twenty republicans and eight democrats. The republicans hold three of the districts by majorities that can be shattered hv good democratic candidates, and there is more probability that the republicans w il lose rather than ?ain in this year's cou tests. Unless the democrats make great blunders there appears to tie little chauce for the republicans gaining more ttnn two or three members of congress north of the Potomac river on the Atlantic slope Whence, then, will come the Deeded twenty-two? ALMOST FINISHED. Bartholin's Statoe of Liberty Approach' Tig Completion. New York, Oct. 12. Bart hi -Mi's statue of Libertv Enlightening tlie orM is prac tically completed. The last plat; of the huge torch, reared aloft 8u0 feet above tidewater by the goddess, were riveted in position Saturday afternoon. AH day long workmen were ceaselessly clambering a twit the neck and shoulder of the statue, stnkinjr a blow here and clinching a rivet tlwre. hie of these men was calmly perched on one of the ears of tin- figure, and still more reckless workmen were hang rpnsmso the statvb over the upper edpe ot the apparently misupirted torch. The riveters were by no mans the only laborers on the island. A score of men were e-ngaged in tearing dnwn two of the old brit k owdf r houses situated within the rainparcS of the ancient fort that encircles the pedestal of the statue. Others were leveling and putting the grounds in or der The iron stairway which will lead to the summit of the figure, yet remain to be erected, and this, of course, will Ink-' some little time, raising as it does some feet in a perpendicular direction. Then the electric lighting arrangement will all have to be put in. TiV total elwtric lighl ing in and on the figure will amonnt to 4,rtt candle-power. At each corner of the balcony at the summit of the pedestal there will l powerful electric lights so arranged as to throw their light upward instead of d'wnwrd, and thus illuminate tlw statue. The crown which adorns the goddess' head will contain fourteen small electric lights, so placed as to send their rays through the small apertures in the crown to give it the appearance of leing studded with jewels. AUiut in.tRtfr invitations will be isMixi for the dedication. A delegation is looked for from every state and territory in the I'mon, and various social and bifc.iiKss organizations oi thix ity will probably iiitorinaily entertain the visitors.

Igi.slation can never protect tlie forests as long as there is such a large de mund for wood. The strength and durability of ijcr is well shown in car wheels made of thi material.

Paper will not only take the place nf wood but ako of a good many metals and of stoneware.

A large part of the lieautifnl bronze orna ments and statues seen in public places and offered for solo in store devoted to the sale of ancient and modern bronzes are made of a composition the principal element of which is paper or fibre.

GTEFHEHB CUSIlf I am first cousin of the, lute Ex-Governor AUrxander H Stephens, and have been postal clerk oa different railroads since 1868. For ten years I hnve been a sufferer from a cancer on my face, wbftru tinew worse until the discharge of matter became profuse and very otfen sive. I became thoroughly disgusted with blood purifiers and pronounced tbcm humbug?, as I hnd (rbd many without relief, Fiutllv I was induced to use H. IL I. which was about the 1st of Febiuarv, and continued its use until the lattei part of April. The offensive discharge tie cre&Kcd at once and the hardness around the cancer disappeared. It improved my general health and I rapidly gained fli'sh and strength. The discharge gradually decreased and tie cancer became less nnd legs in size until nothing rcm-iins except a scar to tell tbe tale of a once danger ous cancer. AH who have seen me since I have commenced the use of 1J. B. IL bear testimony of my great improvement, and the scar on my taoe shows thst it cured tbe cancer. I find that 15. B. IL comes squarely up to what it is rccum mended, and I cannot say too much in praise of this wonderful medicine. I have tried them all, but H. U .IL stands at the top as a blood purifier. The above is copied from the Atheus (G.) Banner-Watchman, being the vol untary language of Mr. Jan es A, Greer, "Mr. Greer is an honest, upright citizen of Athens, who had a bad cancer, and his numerous friends thought that he could not live very long, as the cancer was gradually sapping the foundation of his constitution, but now looks well and heart v. " 2 AGAINST 18 Several physicians bavo pronounced my disease blood poison, caused by paint or lead in the paint, but they could not cure me. Last summer I used eighteen bottles of a largelv advertised blood medi cine, which did me no more good than so much water. I have used nnlv two bottles of B. li B. and am proud to say that I have re ceived greater benefit, from them tlnn from the eightcn, nnd am now .rapidlv recovering, lucre is no oecstion about the superiority of B. B. B over all blood remedies. 215 lieynolds street. V. II. Wcmdr. Augiiii, Ga., April 2Ut, 186. All who ili pire full infnrmaTinn atmul the CHHt" and rurc of 1'lofnl Poisons.
