THE CLIFTON CLARION.
WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 9, 1S85. The Exppess Business. Pittsburg Dispatch : A man en tered the office of the Adams Ex press Company yesterday and placing a small package on the counter said: "I want to send this to Auckland, New Zealand. "When can it goT" Without hesitation the clerk an swered him and gave a receipt for the package which, contained money saying: "I will forward it on the Philadelphia mail to night" Carious to know how an express company could thus con trol delivery at such a distant point, the reporter sought out Mr. W. H. Glenn, the superintendent of the company's business in Pitts burg, and learned the following facts ia regard to the express bus iness: . "Yes, sir, that is a common oc currence here. We have packages come in here for all parts of the world, and we give a receipt for them, no matter where their desti nation may be, and we forward them by themost direct route, and have never yet failed to make a delivery. In one case which hap pened when I was in the East ern part of the country, a man came to me and said he wanted to Bhip a Bible to a missionary friend in South Africx We took the package and forwarded it Sjme weeks after he called to know if it bad been delivered, and wo sent out a tracer.' We bogafi by call ing up the various offices through which it passed after it left us, and finally traced it to our agents at Cape Town, in South Africa. Af ter two months he wrot9 the home office that he sent the pnckngo out only to find that the consignee had been murdered by the savages, and his mutilated liody was nil they found. Did they deliver the" book? Why, of course they did, and when the remains of the mis sionary were brought home and ' the case opened the first thin, that met the sight of the bareavel relatives in the case was a package bearing the legend: 'Adams Ex press OSSce, New York, U. S. A.' "We will forward that package you just saw delivered to San Franciso, Cal., and there oar ugeut will way bill it to the agent at Auckland, New Zealand, and in due timo it will arrive there by Pacific Mail Steamship Company's steamer, jnst as sorely as it would CO to East Liberty. Lost on the road? No. If oar employees at tend to their instructions it cannot be lost, only through shipwreck, and then, if insured, we make good the loss. "We carry cats, dogs, mules, and frequently valuable racing stock. We have taken lunatics and con victs, and any number of babies. In fact our messengers are broken . in on a milk bottle, and can dance a baby just like a real woman. Singular as it may seem, we carry whole cities, too, having sent three train loads of ready made houses to a point in Texas, and followed them with the worldly goods of those who were to occupy them when built" Laud Entries. Florence Enterprise. For the information of settlers who have resided for years upon the lands covered by the Texas Pacific grant wo publish below a letter from Acting Commissioner Walker to Hon. G. H. Oury, of . Florence. It will be seen by this letter that all persons who have resided upon and cultivated said lands for a period of five years can make homestead entries and prove up on the same after giving 30 days' notice by publication: Depahtvent of thk Interior, ) tesfbal Lso Oefice, Washimoto. D. r.. Aug, li. NN3. J m H02?. G. H. Ocrt, Florence, A. T. Si: I am in rf-ceipt of your letter of the 3d instant stating that a party who has been living on and cultivating the N V of section 1, township 5 S., R. 9 ., for nine consecutive years, bus made a homestead entry for the tract since the grant to the Texas Pacific Railroad has been forfeited ; that he was unable to do so while the land was included in the grant. You ask if he can now make his proofs. In reply I have to state that after publication of notice of his intention to do so for thirty days he can make proofs, and will be credited with the time of his continuous residence on tho land, both pnor and subsequent to the date of his entry. Very Respectoily, WILLIAM WALKER, Actios Commiaaioner. President Diaz of Mexico has removed from Humboldt street to the Calle CaJena, a favorite place of residence for rich merchant. He lives in good style, but with out luxury, and is as simple a man in his habits as Gen. Grant was. He may be frequently seen with his charming wife strolling through the forest of Chapulte- Opposed to Uatli ins. . Pittsburg Dispatch: He laid down a package which he had just finished tying up and wiped his hand with the front of his vest He stood behind the counter of a South Side grocery store. His face was broad and red, and over flown with good-nature and pres piration. He looked as though he might weigh two hundred. "So you would like to see a man who is opposed to bathing, would yon? Well, here he is; take a good look at him. He is never sick, and never had a cold." "You don't look as thousrh you would go into rapid decline soon." "No; I don't feel like it I am 45 years old, and weigh 195 pounds. I am opposed to bath ing. If a man wants to open up the pores of his skin once or twice a week, and lay himself open to the attacks of disease, let him do it" fcHow long ago did you discover this principle of hygiene?" "If you mean when did I stop bathinw, about ten years ago. Not entirely, mind you. I take a light invigorator twice, just to kep my skin fresh, you know. May be this is too often, but I find it agrees with me best I got into a tub the 1st of January and again the 4th of July. Now you are laughing; but remember, yonng maa, I am older than you, and have had more experience. Did you ever see a cow bathe? No, I thought not A cow re frains from bathing by instinct, yet they are as clean an animal as lives. I merely take a rough tow el every night and rub myself down and change my clothes of ten. If the cholera comes here this season I think I can defy it I never had a contagious disease in my life, and yet I have attend ed to people who had the small pox and have been among conta gions diseases of all kinds." An article in the Popular Science Monthly calls attention to the prevalent deterioration of the hu man sight in the present day, and holds that it is mostly duo to the reading of black letters on white paper. This is said to be mining the sight of the people of all read ing nations. Lord Bacon long ago said that the rays of the snn are reflected by a white body nud absorbed by a black one. Hence the shapes of tho letters in an or dinarily printed book are not re ceived on the retina by a sponta neous direct nctiDU of that organ. The white surface of the paper is reflected, and the letters are de tected only by a discriminating effort of the optic nerve. This ef fort annoys the nerve, and when long continued destroys its sus ceptibility. The human eye can not long sustain the broad glare of the white surface without inju ry. The injurious effects of long continued gazing on a white ex panse are well-known, as witness tbe prevalence of opthalmia in Egypt, caused by continued look ing on the vast areas of white sand in that country, and the snow blindness which afflicts trav elers m the Alpine rogions. There are many thousand of shades of the elementary colors from which paper manufacturers could select tints more agreeable to the eye and less fatiguiDg than the dazzling white which is now used clinast without exception for book print ing. A gentleman whose family con sists of a wife and twin girl babies came in very lute oue night and went to bed. His sleep was brokon, and ho tossed and tumbled, and muttered something about "two of a kind" and a "small pair." "Poor John," murmured his wife, "he is tired and is dreaming of the children." N. Y. Sun. Young Featherly had dropped in for an evening call, and Bobby was enjoying the conversation and leading in tho laughter. Incidentaly Bobby said: "Mr. Featherly, can water burn." "No, Bobby," replied Featherlr, amused at the question, "hut it can be made very hot by boiling. What put that idea into your head?" "Ma. She told sister that there was no danger of your ever set ting the Norlb River on fire." N. Y. Sun. The last meeting of ex-President Jefferson Davis and his Cab inet as a body was in a large brick house at Washington, Ga., which stands on the site where Stephen Heard, in Revolutionary days, built a fort from which to fight the Indians. The pen with which Davis signed his last order is now in the possession of T. M. Green, of Washington. It is a little strange that the ball of rev olution set in motion by Mr. Toombs in Washington, shoulJ have rolled back to his own door for is final explosion. Dakota claims a population of 400,000.

"Yes, I like it very much."

A man in a lonely part of Iowa had brain fever in consequence 6f the death of his wife, and on re covering could not remember where he buried her.
