F. M. & E. M. KIMMELL , EDITORS & PUBLISfiERS. THE principal business of the hour is the taking of inventories and the balancing of ledgers. C. P. HUNTINGTON , President of the Southern Pacific , started out in his business career as a peddler. He is now worth more than $100,000,000. WITH Ihe beginning of the new year Uncle Sam will go into the junk shop business. The Boston navy-yard will be converted into a rope walk and the condemned vessels will be broken up. UPON evidence showing fraud in making entry , the Commissioner Gen eral of the Land Office , during the present week , cancelled twenty-one entries of public lands in Colorado , twelve in Dakota and seventeen in Xew Mexico. WILLIAMS and Marys College , of Vir ginia , has closed its doors , having but one student at the beginning of this school year : Next to Harvard , this was the oldest college in America , having been founded in lG93andwas , the only one that received a royal charter. Among the most eminent men educated in its halls were Washington , Marshall , Randolph , Tyler , Breckenridge and General Scott. TIIUKE months bring a great many changes to the business world. Vil- lard , of the Northern Pacific , when he took his immense excursion of aristo crats and newspaper men out to Oregon gen to drive the golden spike , was then considered the greatest of the railroad magnates of the country , and his biog raphy was in every journal of the land. To-day he is ' 'out" of every line that then was proud to count him its presi dent and dictator. It is not known whether he has escaped -with a fortune or has sunk his private means in a con test with the bears , and we look in vain for journalistic tributes to his great ness. Journal. THE cold , biting wind of winter is upon us. The pharisee would say , ' 'God help the poor. " But the broad-souled , good-hearted man goes down in hie pocket and pulls out the wherewith to make the poor warm and to fill their gaunt stomachs. In the olden time it was acceptable to make sacrifices in lieu of prayers. At the risk of being accused of a leaning to paganism , these Topics venture to announce their faith in the efficacy of gifts as a substitute for prayers by those who do not feel quali fied to familiarly approach the throne. . The poor have the ear of the Lord , and when a man makes them his proxy in the matter of beseeching a throne of grace he need have little fear but his n case will be well presented. Topics. e a THE death of General Humphreys n removes another of the gallant soldiers f. . who distinguished themselves during f.tl the late war. He was not only a brave tlf tlh < soldier in every sense of the word , but h also one of the most eminent engineers S < in the United States. His career in the ir arm } ' covers a period of over forty years irw active service. A native of Pennsylva ti nia , he graduated from the military tini ni academy at West Point in 1831 , and tl was assigned to the Second artillery. tl In 1838 he entered the topographical tl engineer corps , and was promoted to a tlw tlA captaincy in that corps during the Mex w ican war. At the outbreak of the civil cl clg' war he was major in the engineer corps , g' ' and was assigned to duty as colonel and ei 01 aid-de-camp on Gen. Scott's staff. On ai the 28th of April , 1862 , he was appoint aiP ed brigadier-general of volunteers , and in in July , 1863 , he was promoted to be tl major-general for gallant and meritor at ea ious services at the battle of Gettys th burg. On August Sth , 1866 , General P Humphreys became chief of the United se States engineers , with the rank of brig re te adier-general , which position he held re until he was retired , at his own request , PI PIHi four years ago , Bee. Hi THE fact that Brigadier-General R. S. MaoKenzie , commander of the de partment of Texas , has been relieved of his command on account of temporary insanity , caused by nervous prostration , and placed in the military asylum at .Washington , recalls to mind * some sad and interesting incidents in the history of the Slidell-MacKenzie family , who , it appears , have been the subjects of what seems to be a singular fatality. General. MacKenziu's grandfather , forty years ago , was a naval captain in command of the war brig.Somers in the West Indies. It was claimed that a mutiny was discovered on board the vessel , although no overt act had been committed , and upon the testimony of an informer , a young midshipman nam ed Spencer was convicted of being a ring leader by a court on board the ves sel. Captain MacKenzie ordered him to be hung from the yard arm"of the vessel at sunrise next morning , and the order was carried out. Spencer , who was a mere youth , was "the son of the then Secretary of War. The tragedy created the greatest sensation of the times in the United States. Captain MacKenzie. upon his return to this country , was arrested and tried by court martial , but as the captain had not over stepped the law , he was acquitted. His cruel act , however , was universally condemned. It was argued that , as the mutiny , if there was any , had been sub dued , there was no good reason why Spencer , if guilty of any crime , should not have been kept as a prisoner until the ship returned to the United States. Captain MacKenzie never got another command in the United States navy , but despised of his fellow men he pass ed the remainder of his life , almost en tirely without a friend , in anguish and remorse. Misfortunes have ever since befallen his descendants. One was kill ed in a railway accident , having his neck broken , and another was drowned at sea. The members of the Slidell branch of the family have all been over come by sorrow , grief and want. And now the grandson , General Mac Kenzie , a gallant soldier , who became a brigadier at the age of forty the youngest general of that rank in the army becomes insane a few days be fore his contemplated marriage. It certainly is a singular fact that ill-luck has befallen the MacKenzies ever since young Spencer was hung by order of the old naval captain. Bee. EVERY one is interested in the sun sets and sunrises , which have delighted the people of various parts of the earth tor several months. Every one is ask ing why. One answer has been that we ire passing through a portion of space illed with cosmical dust ; but we have ) assed through the same portion before ind have never witnessed a similar phe- lomena. Norman Lockyear , one of the uost famous of English scientist , gives mother answer , which it seems to us is nore reasonable. He , like others , at- ributesthe phenomenon to the presence if dust in the a'tmosphere , but not cos- uical dust. Mother Earth has produc- d the conditions , which give to us such beautiful picture every night and lorning. On August 26 an island 3,000 eet high disappeared , the quaking of he island producing a sea wave 100 eet high. Sand , stones and vapor were urled to an enormous hight , and the ' ound of the eruption was heard 2,000 liles away. Millions of tons of matter ere hurled in the air , the heaviest re- irned to the earth , the lightest re tained suspended in the air. At first le coarse particles entirely absorbed IB light and in the neighborhood of le eruption there was a total darkness. , LS these disappeared the sun seemed fo cu bite and dim. When the finer parti- Ju les only were left behind , blue and Rt tit reen effects were observed. Finally , th lough only was left at a height of forty cu r fifty miles to reflect the sun's light mi tit "ter sunset and to prolong the twilight , byte rof. Helmholtz has calculated that the to latenal in the atmosphere producing sal le effect is about forty miles above the irth. There are two lines of these ) normal sunsets , one east and west , IB other north and south , from the by ) int of the volcanic eruption , and it foi tot terns very probable that the upper cur- tb ( nts of the atmosphere have distribu- we we ( d the dust hurled into the air at Java , to suiting in the sky glows which have ore tic educed such universal comment. o'c epublican. rnc > AN experimental work has been go ing on for a short time along the Mil waukee and St. Paul Railroad Branch and the Brandon Branch , about 30 miles in length , the object being to de termine whether or not the barbed wire of the fence on either side of the road can be utilized for telegraphic purposes. The fence wire was placed in proper condition for a sufficient distance to make a satisfactory test , the wire being run under the surface at road crossings. Superintendent of Telegraph Simpson decides that the plan is not practicable. Telegraph work can be done over the fence wire at this time , he says , but during the1 winter months , when huge snow banks completely cover the fence , the line wonld be made useless. There are thousands of miles of wire fence along the Western lines , and it has been contended that they should be utilized for this purpose. Scientific American. When the notorious James Robinson , or "Jack Shcppard , " or he is known to the detectives , was sentenced to three years in the Eastern penitentiary , he was advised to try to lead a better life , which lay entirely with himself. "Yes , " answered he , "I worked three years in your state prison , and I know as much about shoemaking as I do about watch es. They taught me in your prison to be dishonest. My principal "work waste to paste leather and pasteboard togeth er to make a thick sole to impose on the public. The man having the con tract was a Christian , a member of the church , and at the time I called his at tention to the pasteboard business he was foreman of the Grand Jury. They send me to the state prison to make me honest , and that is the way they do it. " Philadelphia Times. HARDLY had the echoes of the Mar quis of Lome's assurance to the people of England that the Irishmen of Cana da were loyal and averse to any disturb ance , died away on the air , before the telegraph began togecho another story from Newfoundland. The entire popu lation of Harbor Grace are in arms over a bloody attack made upon an Orange procession , and the local militia are scarcely strong enough to prevent a war of extermination between the bel ligerent parties. DATUS BROOKS , for a long time ed itor of the Omaha Republican , has been made private secretary to Senator Van- Wyck , notwithstanding Mr. Brooks was i staunch Grant Republican. Mr. Brooks will also act as secretary of the iommittce on the improvement of the Mississippi river.
