Monday, April 17, 1893.
Kixa II cm bgrt has mado Verdi the
Marquis of Basseto, but the world
will always know him, as he will
doubtless always prefer to be known,
as Verdi, composer.
Ax American abroad has just killed
a count. Such a waste of material
will be censured in this practical age
The count might have been imported
and sold at a good figure.
The population of Siberia is likely
to bo augmented by a colony from
Russia's upper circles. Another of
the plots that take aim at the czar
and invariably miss him has had the
ill-luck to be discovered.
Andrieux, ex-prefect of the Paris
police, is all mixed up in the Panama
scandal, and seems to appreciate the
gravity of the situation. He refuses
to fight a duel. He realizes that th
present is not a time for trifling.
It is not strange that army officers
do not like to be Indian agents. It
would be a severe trial to keep the
complicated accounts and there are
instances known where so simple a
thing as their on pay accounts have
made them no end of trouble.
Spokane has a sixteen-year-old boy
who but for his father's wealth would
be an irrepressible thief. As it is,
the doctors shake their heads wisely
and pronounce the case as sad an in

The monument over the grave of
Lincoln is in a state of dilapidation,
disgraceful alike to Illinois and the
nation. It was erected too cheaply
and hurriedly in the first place, and
now is falling to pieces. If a man so
gTeat is in need of any monument of
the mechanical sort it ought to be of
Ti'rkey has but one poetess. She
lives in a marble palace overlooking
the blue beauty of the Bosphorus,
and eats from gold plate. Give the
average American poetess half this
chance and the oriental conjurer of
verse wouldn't bo in it. Indeed, if a
person of ripe judgment she wouldn't
be anywhere near it.
According to an Eastern scribe the
art of letter writing is almost forgot
ten. The daily records of the courts
refute this. The masses of dreary
correspondence published whenever a
person of note dies makes the refuta
tion emphatic. People do, however,
write fewer letters than formerly, but
this is not forgetfulness; it is reform.
At this juncture the revival of the
Irish dynamitard is about as danger
ous a blow as could be struck at the
political hopes of Ireland. His re
pression by Parnell was the first and
most important step in the campaign
that led to the overthrow of the tories.
His reappearance now threatens to
turn the fruits of victory into Iead
sea fruit. Every Irish patriot should
help to run the rascal down. Than

There is one postmaster that Clove
land may not remove. His name is
Koswell liardsley of North Lansing,
Tompkins county. New York. He
was commissioned by John Quincy
Adams, on June 28, 1838, and has
been postmaster ever since. He was
then 19 years old. He is still able to
attend to his small country store and

Sixty-five years he has held the ofiice.
always a democrat and a gentleman;
always the same old country store
and the same postoffice on the cor

they celebrated their golden wed

his office never exceeded sJGO a year.
If you do not believe it call at Bards
ley's corners, Tompkins county, New
York, and inquire. He has acquired,
by strict honesty and small savings,
a fair competence.
Messrs. A. S. Barnes & Co.. New
York, have in press a book entitled
Looking Within; the Misleading
Tendencies of 'Looking Backward,
Made Manifest." As its title suggests,
it is a reply to the suggestive plans
in "Looking Backward" for a revolu
tion in present social and govern
mental methods and ideas. The book
is written in the form of a novel, a
complete narrative of absorbing in
terest forming the principal artery
through which its various characters
expound and enlarge their ideas on
the labor question, governmental
control," etc. Exciting episodes of
new and startling phases retain the
reader's interest to the end, and the
imagination is given full play, amidst
scenes and events happening in the
twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
The book will be ready about May
A BALLAD OF TREES AND THE MASTER.
Into the woods my Master went.
Clean forspent, forspent.
Into the woods my Master came
Forspent with love and shame.
But the olives they were not blind to him.
The little gray leaves were kind to him.
The thorn tree had s mind to him.
When into the woods he came.
Out of the woods my Master went.
And he was well content:
Out of the woods my Master came.
Content with death and shame.
When death and shame would woo him last.
From under the trees they drew him last,
Twaa on a tree they slew him last.
When out of the woods he came.
A Narrow IscapeTor Butler.
It is not generally known that Oli
ver Stevens, the present district at
torney, once saved General Butler's
life. It was at the Charleston con
vention, more than 30 years ago.
General Butler's course in the con
vention had been conspicuously bold
and courageous, and his antagonism
to certain elements had been notice
ably unrelenting. Jack Cavanagh, a
well known figure at conventions and
caucuses in those days, after many
bloody threats, finally one evening
loaded up his revolver and himself
and made for General Butler's quar
ters. He would have found the gen
eral unprepared and unable to defend
himself, and he undoubtedly would
have shot him, but Oliver Stevens
intercepted Jack and spirited him
away and at the same time sent word
to General Butler. Boston Globe.
Deafness Cannot be Corsd
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to cure deaf
ness, and that is bv constitutional
remedies. Deafness is caused bv an
intlamed condition of the mucous
lining of the eustachian tube. When
this tube gets inflamed you have a
rumbling sound or imperfect hear
ing, and when it is entirelv closed
deafness is the result, and unless the
inflammation can be taken out and
this tube restored to its normal con
dition, hearing will be destroyed for
ever; nine cases, out of ten are caused
by catarrh, which is nothing but an
intlamed condition of the mucous
