TIIERE seems to be an irrepressible desire for revolution in the Spanish blood. Just as we read that Spain is lioney-combed with plots conies the in telligence that a dozen or two of the most prominent men of Mexico have jeen arrested on charge of treason. It is difficult to know just what constitutes : reason in Mexico , but there is reason to conclude that doing like pld Ben Butler , naming against both parties , would be the most serious form of it. There doesn't seem to be much of the real re public about Mexico , and probably there couldn't be. FOURTEEN .million sheep have per * shed in Australia during the present season from drought.

Probably the most determined old fraud that has afilioted the country in the present generation is Brewster , the legal nonentity of the present gruesome administration. It was Brewster who told the other fellows to stand back and watch him while he landed every one of the Star Route thieves in the penitentiary. It was Brewster who never landed one of them in the penitentiary , but made of himself a laughing-stock for the whole country in general and the legal pro fession in particular. ' It was Brew ster who then employed Bradley to prosecute the civil cases against the Star Routers , and who with infinite bluster and bragadocio declared that they should be drained to the last dollar lar of their stolen fortunes. It is now Brewster who quarrels with Bradley forcing the latter to retire from the cases , and it is Brewster who now threatens to lift himself by the boot straps and inject Brewster bodily into the civil cases for all he is worth. And who does'nt know what will be the'outcome ? After Brewster has expended § 100,000 of the people's money to get a verdict for the Gov ernment , he will open hfe eyes to dis cover that the other fellows have had his jurors and his witnesses and the whole court machinery from the start. All in all , Brewster is a fresh old par ty. Speaking of Brewster , I am re minded to say that Brewster's arrival at Long Branch the other day was the only genuine sensation socie ty there has experienced this season. The old fellow hauled up before the hotel door with his coach and herald thereon his coat-of- emblazonry , gilt - - arms protruding from the door like the cat's heads from the Roman char iots of a thousand years ago. Two trunks and thirty valises , two footmen and five liveried servants , comprised the retinue of the lordly barrister , and this is a Government of the plain democracy , and this one of its Cab- inent ministers ! When a politician resorts to the courts to obtain redress for libellous attacks upon his character , he gener ally comes out with a good deal less of that commodity than he had when he went in. Mr. Blaine shows an undue sensitiveness for a politician in claiming § 50,000 as a panacea for his wounded character. Of course libels even of a political character are not to be excused or defended when they involve injury and perhaps lasting disgrace upon the reputations of the innocent members of a family , and in all such attacks the intention is the gist of the offense. Nobody suppos es that the editor of the Indianapolis Sentinel intended to defame the char acter cf Mrs. Blaine or her children in the reflections made upon Mr. Elaine's early remissness , and in so far Mr. Blaine will hardly recover ; damages enough to be equivalent to the loss he will suffer by attempting its reparation. .If there is any one thing that can scandalize Mr. Secretary Folger more t than any other thing , it is to question t : the abundance and infinitude of his egotism. The great minister of finance lets Wall street and its howling der vishes go to the dogs , and keeps the President and Cabinet in waiting e while he sits in the Government pho ; tograph gallery , back of the Treasury , enjoining the artist to do his level best in posing him for the shop win dows. The Secretary is running to photographs fearfully and has been taken in every conceivable position except that of standing on his head , an acrobatic feat that Gov. Cleveland performed upon him to his satisfaction > tion two years ago. The Secretary's features are of a character that naturally : ally led their posessor to admire , and no blushing maiden preparing herself for the ball room deals so elaborately in settling upon an esthetic smirk or i bang-up smile. DOM PEDKO. THE Greely relief expedition cost the Government nearly § 700,000. ' o A J-'KW hundred Chinamen have been murdered and a few thousand made homeless by the French. This is civilization. The next step will be the robbery of the Chinese to pay the expenses of the murderers. The great powers will share in the pillage. This is civilixation. But by the side of it the exploits of the Irish dynamiters become respectable. They are the weak against the strong. This is the strong against the weak. Topics. A CANADIAN has invented a new way of fishing. Instead of taking a net and fishing he has a flock of thirty geese. To the legs of these fowls he lias a line and baited hooks attached. The flock are driven into the water and are followed by the man's two sons , who drive them up stream , thus making them troll. As soon as a goose gets a bite it becomes frightened and , with a great flopping of wings and squawking , flics to the shore , where the fish is taken from the hook. SINCE Hanlan has been defeated by Beach it is generally considered by the profession that he was an overra ted sculler. This is the right thing to say of a man when after a long line of victories , he goes under. We have no doubt but when Goliah tum bled to David's little sling racket there were thousands of Hebrews who remarked that they always knew he wasn't much of a man. Topics. "MEN who are not smothered by debt and who have kept out of wild speculations have a prosperous busi ness before them in the near future , " remarks a veteran Chicago merchant , discussing the crops and the business situation. The same experienced merchant remarks , "Men who specu late and those who do business on credit are hardly ever successful in the long run. " A CHOONEU went crashing1 into a U. S. man of war a night or two ago something after the style of a locust thorn into a boy's foor. Fortunately for the country the crew was mostly saved by presence of mind and know ing how to swim , and the secretary of the national collection of tubs was saved by not being on board.-Topics. A vOTJBjt at the Denver primary the other day was handed his ticket and the two dollar bill that went with it at the same time. He voted the bill and had the ticket left , owing to Iris lack of presence of mind on such Dccasions. The judges of election reveled in beer after they counted. PLAGAIRISMS. Modesty in a woman is a certain igreeable fear of all she enters upon ; in men it is composed of a right judg ment of what is proper for them to at tempt. There is a thread in our thoughts n is there is a pulse in our feelings he ivho can hold the one knows how to hink and he who can move the other cnows how to feel. Examine your lives , weigh your notives , watch over your conduct , md you will not take long to learn or liscover enough to make you enter- ain charitable opinions of others. No human being can be isolated ind- self sustained. The strongest md bravest and most hopeful have rret , acknowledged or unacknowledg ed to themselves moments of hungry oul-yearninnr for companionship and sympathy. THE Massachusetts bureau of labor las compiled a report of wages paid for ionimon and skilled labor in that state ind compared them with the present atcs for the same classes of labor in Eng- audj and find that the advantage to the Massachusetts laborer is seventy-seven I er cent. This showing indicates that as lompared with the price of labor on the ontiuent of Europe , Massachusetts vorkmen receive more than double the rages paid their brethren in France , Jermany , Italy , and Belgium. General Butler will take notice and govern him- elf accordingly when he describes the tate of starvation to which the laborers if New England arc reduced. W. C. LaTOURETTE , IIDEALHll IN | | .
