Tea Chicago Bendd remarks that Mr. Randall's gout, which generally prevents him from accepting invitations to address democratic meetings during political campaigns, i not so troublesome now that he has an .opportunity to work against democratic measures in congress. Secretary Ekdicott makes the very sensible suggestion that the fitness of any army oflioer tor promotion should be ascertained by examination, to be con ducted by officers of a higher grade. Taeorjinary method is seniority, but nothing does more to destroy hope, and enterprise ana aesire for im prove - men t than the seniority rule in all services in which it prevails. Mr. Endicott does not propose a competitive examination, but simply an examination, to ascertain wnewer a man is in any particular case qualified to go up high er. At present seniority in most cases gives a right to promotion, fitness or no fitness. ihe Kocuesier rose Axprow, wnich is partly owned by the Republican post master of that city, says: "Mr. Blaine has got too many quarrels on his hands to admit of his easy election to the Pre idency . The republicans, if they be wise. will nominate in 1888 some first-ciass man who can at least" poll the entire republican vo'e. If they should nominate Judge Gresham he would not on!y be supported by all republicans, but would receive the voles of many mugwumps. uu vuuimauu ine respeci oi ail dem ocrats.

There won many tanneries put in opera- me ar. i vi v ery uirmor eoux not carry th? few hides he might have to the tanyards. So the question was how to tan them at home. The hides were soakwl for a few days in a barrel of water, in which some very week lye, filtrated from wood ashes, had been mingled. The hair was then casilv removed. I may also add that few hides were then passed by as useless. The home process of tanning was, porhaps, a primeval as that belonging to the earliest ages. A pit of size to suit the number of hides would be dug in ine ground near a spring or stream of water.

J., Dec 11 A duel took plai Thursday morning at "Eilge Hill, near this city. The meeting grew out of recent difficultv that took place between druggist and a young sporting man of Tren ton. Not beinj able to amicab.y nettle the dispute, it was agreed to resort to a duel with pistols. Seoouds were selected, one of them, a student at Princeton college. Tepee seuting the druggist. A Trenton physician was also engaged ami tbe entire partv, seven in all, met on Jt, lge hill, opiosite Trenbm, at ocioca inuradav moruing. ten paces weie taken and the principle, pistols in hand, faced each other, while their friends withdrew to a safe distance. Two shots were fired bnt they did not take effect, and again tlie command to tire was given by one of tbe seconds. This time the bullets found resting places, for hardly had the echoes died anav before the sporting man was seen to fall to the ground and the druggist cried out from pam. in latter was found to have re ooived a slight flesh wound hi the arm. The sporting man's friends milled forward and discovered that a bullet had pierced his tuouiaer. The physician cut away tlie coat and shirt sleeve, and was examining the wound, when tlie injured man, mad with pain, partially raireu niinseif up and tired a third shot at h unarmed antagonist. Tbe seconds denounced this cowardly act, and the druggist's second claimed that his friend would be justified in retaliating by firing another shot- at the prostrate man. The drnsgist would not avail himself of this privilege, tlaiming that be had honestly worsted his rival aud did not desire to commit a similar breach of the code, lhe physician bandaged the arm. when tbe vanquished sport was hustled into a wagon and driven to his home in Trenton, where he is now confuted to his bed. Be fore separating the party pledged them selves to secrecy. It is not possible to cut we names. A MOST DISGRACEFUL SCENE. Vindictive Action of a Mother at I Son's Funeral. . cirmsurutLD, Ohio. Dec. 1L-A disgrace ful scene occurred Thursday at the funerrl or joon Looper, a young man who Tuesday night shot himself because his sweet heart, Lena Wagner, refused him. A feud exits between tbe Coopers and Wagners. l he Coopers nave the Wagners to under stand their presence would not be accentable ni wie iunerai; nevertheless the entire Wag ner lamuy went, including the girl for whom Cooper died. Tbe female members of the Wagner family were all dressed in deep mourning and they were shown to teats among tbe spectators. Lena seemed heart broken. As she sat down she - cast a look at toe coffin and wept bitterly. In her hand she carried a bunch of rosebuds. When the remaines were viewed Lena stooped over the cold corpse and imprinted a kiss on the motionless lips, ber warm tears tailing on tne blanched cheeks. She placed the tainch of rosehnds in tbe ciainmv timrers. and passed on. Seeing this. Mrs. Cnoner sprang ioraaru, snatched tlie buils, crushed nem. and threw them at Lena, w ho fainted. After reviving her the lit v. McDonald took the crumped flowers and told Lena if she wanted to put tbem in tbe dead man's hand sne could. Again tbe flowers were ulace.1 there, and again the mother took them out Lena took tne flowers and declared she would put tbem in the grave. There was ereat strife to see which carriage should be nearest the hearse. The girl took the flowers to the grave and just before the first dirt fell on tbe oomn inrew them in. hhe is almost -,- trate with grief. It now turns out that the weuuing wouia nave taken place and lhe lei usto was not la emirtit.
