VOLUME XXIII. WINCHESTER, TENNESSEE, MAY U, 1884. NUMBER 10. OhdM the operation of tlx Harper hlgii Ucenso law Chicago has issued 3,000 liquor licenses thin far with aggregate receipts amounting to 400,000. Tlie majority of the licenses are for four months, and it is estima ted that the year's receipts will not bo less thm f 1,600,000. About COO saloons hare been fro wn out. Tiis Boston Journal ssys that tlio weekly ales of oleomargerine in that cltjr amount to 800,000 or 150,000 pounds, that all the regular lobbing "tores down town keep it for sale for juit wlut It is at prices ranging from twelve to twenty cents per pound. A choice article can be bought for fifteen cent, and it is largely Died in manufacturing communities. The fllk culturo industry is growing In the fnitcd Btatcs. Thero are at present twelve as sociations, numerous stock companies, a colony of Italians in Texas, a German colony in North Carolina, a sottlement of Norwegians in Geor gia snd several colonies of Menuonltes in Kan sas engaged in feeding chopped mulberry leaves to tlio dainty silk worm. Tub establishment of a cancer hospital in New York was a magnificent idea, and its sue. cess has been ensured by a gift of f 200,000 from John Jacob Alitor. Other generous gifts havo been received, one of 25,0l)0,onof 000, snntlicr of (15,000, besides firo amounts of 15,000 each, and four of l,000 each. A vacant lot worth (35,008 was presented by lsdv. ffork will bo begun as soon as plans can be drawn end the contracts msde. TntFrcnrh niodo of executing criminals by the ghillutinc is rapid enough to satisfy any one. When the criminal's neck is fairly under tho knifo a lover is touched, the blado flashes downward, tho head falls into a zinc ease standing in readiness to receive it, tho body is thrown into a tumbril, and the remains are galloped oft to tho Turnip Field, there to bo btiricd with paupers and uuclaimcd inmates from the morgue, Tlio, spectators at these ex ecutions compriso dundics, looso women, Jour nalistssnd tho lift raflf. Everything goes oil quietly. Ix the middle states sinco 1874 farming lands havo r'eertased in valuo fully fifty per ccut. The depreciation is not due to any general and heavy full in the pricos of farm products. The eiplnnsl ion given by a recent writer is that tho taxes levied by tho geno-al government sinco tho war aro vastly heavier than they were hrforo tho war. As tho burden of all taxation falls ultimately on productive indus try, it follows that land, which is the founda tion of that industry, must fall in value as the tsx bunion is ma e houvier, and rise in price whenever this burden is inado lighter. Riuck the departure of Mr. Henry Irving the newnpapers are comparing bis rccoiptB with those of other talented dramatic artistes. Bcrnhardt's total turnings here for 20 necks were t3!K,000. Mrs. I.angtry's total was 223, 663. Irvlng's receipts wero J405.C04. Mr. Irvlng's greatest success was in lloston. There in one week ho played before 27,000 hearers. The week's receipts wore (24,087. It must be recollected that Mr. Irving began with quail, fled success and ended by eclipsing all com petitors. Utah has now 10,000 small farms averaging Cwenty-flvo acres, and the wholo must be irri gated. There is oidy one large farm in the territory, and it is owned by a coinpaiiv. The Great Salt Lake, according to Elder Cannon, contains enough salt to supply America for centuries. All that is necessary in preparing It for the market is to drive to the edge of tho lake with a wagon and a man with a pair ol rubber boats can load it with a shovel. The salt lies on the bottom of the lake in small coarse crystals. After loading It is taken to a grinding machine and being run through it is fit for the table. In six years Henry M. Stanley has succeeded In establishing a chain of international station, across the African continent. In 1880 he foun ded Viva, the first of the sorits of stations in western Africa. Before tho end of tho third yearLeopoldville,, a station on Stanley Tool, at the boad of tho'lower cataracts, and the key of the uppsr Congo, was founded, and four steam ers wore launched on the groat river. In 1883 the station of Btanley Falls, 1,000 miles np the liver, was founded. About 3,600 miles of river transit of the Congo and its tributaries are opened to commerce by this chain of stations. The Import to the west coast of Africa last year were over (32,000,000, while the export were over 137,000,000. Aocordiho to Mulhall's Dictionary of Stall, ties murder is a causa of death: In England to 337 per 10,000,000 In Belgium to 340 " In France to 205 " In Scandinavia to SCO In Germany to 379 " In Ireland (1879) to 391 " In Austria to 310 " In Russia t 83 I Inltally to 60 " j In Spain to 53 " In the United States to 83 " The exceedingly unfavorable reoord of thi Onited States is the natural result of a low con dition of publio sentiment on tho subject ot murder. Thi American climate is not so much respon sible for disease as damp homes caused by bad drainage, the use of tobacco, the drinking of Whiskey at all timet and especially botwecn , Duals, the excessive nse of strong tea and cof ' (m, the frying pan, the soda baking powder, and patent purgative pills. Overwork is rarely the disease. The present hot water craze i" i apabl of doing as much harm as good ,a . " wiw way oo usoa wun aavaniage la a limited number of cases, it has not been fJtWl Its disadvantages. It bas helped the nrong tea and ooffee drinkers whose nervous I7tem will not stand the strong stimulant.

For "nyjaars the friends of Daniel Webster put 100,000 at interest for him, and if it had not lot tbia provision of (6,000 a yoar Web j would hart retired from the senate, for ho "dared he could not givo his life to his coun- W da;. Th, f rieud. of Tom Cwwln came to his relief at lc.t nni-A ami tlA 1. 1 debts, nenry Clsy was tho recipient of a sim ilar testimonial from his friends. He spent a whole generation in congress, lived beyond his means, ami the mortgsgo on bis Ashland place would have been foreclosed if it had not been privately cancelled by his whig friend Just after his defeat for the was thirty years in congress but he never be I csme a rich man, and never, while in oflloo, availed himself of any opportunity to make money. Tub chiof of forestry of the agricultural do pertinent at Washington, has iniLli.ln,.l . phlet advising the ulentimr (if fnrssflta in ArAt.m to restore the balance of tha lnHt ture. On all the hill sides and slopes of tho "" "J " ana ol the I'aciflo states, whore the original forest growth has boon romoved, it is auvntaoio to restore it. Very steep and high hillsides should bo permanently covered with trees, and so should lowland tracts thst aro tottay, sour, sandy or otliorwiso wanting in fertility. The answer to "What to plant," must bo determined bv climatn anil tun. Iness purposes and other things. Several istcs navo CHiaimalica forestry departments, Journals of forestry are now published, and the matter is discussed oven in the public schools. A great troeplanting movement is likely to sweep all over the country. Thi future of wheat raisimr la attuctin. attention. Within a few yoars American farm ers will havo to meet strong competition in the grain markets of tho old world. Wo must nn admit that India can produce enough whoat to seriously sfTcct prices in Ameiica. Already with a crop of 85.OTO.000 bushuls short th. prieo of wheat hns gono 18 cents below that of ino timo wnon our wheat crop was tho lament evor known.. In future when Egypt, India and central Africa iour their wheat into tho mar kets tno farmers or this country will absndou all hope of profitable competition. The Amer. lean farmer must now adopt methods of farm ing which will msko him comparatively inde pendent of tho world's wheat market. Tlio lesson taught l.y the East India experiment with wheat is enough toopunoureyes, and now that England is preparing to open a short mad to the vast fertile districts in Africa thero is no estimating the outcome, GniNNEi.ii is tho pimieer temperanco city of Iowa. Thirty years ago a few families settled on the Grinncll tract and went to work to build up a town. Tho owner of tho land incor porated a provision in ovcry deed to the effect that any lot on which liquor was sold should rovert to tho first owner or his heirs. There has novcr been a rovcrsion, and novcr a saloon in the placo, and no holder of real citato has been known to favor tho salo of spirits. Tho town has now between 3,000 and 4,000 pooplo, throo railways, and manufacturing industries which employ several hundred men of various nationalities and every shade of roliginus and political belief. Thero is no desiro to change tho present ordor of things becauso taxes are low, real estate is advancing, and a good clans of peoplo come to tho placo. There aro flvo churches. Of tho Inhabitants from first to lsst not ono ever went to Jail, to prison or to tho poor house. The cyclono of laxi destroyed all the colleges, 100 dwellings and 40 lives, but there has been a full recovery from Iho ilTccts of one of tho most disastrous storms on record. Grinnell enjoys an enviablo reputation for good order, entorurise and prosperity. Tho temperanco peoplo may well Imj proud of it, and after thirty years it can hardly bo called an ex periment. It is an accomplished fact. Irour consular repor:s are to be belioved, Mexico is no place for men of energy unless thoy have abundant capital. Enterprising Americans of largo means can mako money in Mexico, but it is no country for poor men. Everything in Mexico is now in a transition state and it is difficult to predict the outcome. The government is autocratic, the president possessing greator power than any potcntato in Europe. Tho governors of tho soveral states iro responsible to tho ceutr.il pownr which ex sreises a preponderating influence inolectlons. Publio education is now pushed for all it is worth. There has been a great advance in the condition of the cities. Real estate has doub led aud in some instances trohlcd in value. The Capital is now gridironcd with mulo railways leading out into tho country for miles in every direction. Agricultural lauds do not advance in proportion. The cost of irrigation in almost every section is a big item and keeps agricul. turo iu the background. Ono great drawbaok ta the progress of the country is tho condition of society. Thero are only two classos in Mex !o, the highest and the lowest. Thero is no Middle class. Tlie wealthy, educated non-producers never mingle in any way with the com mon people, and it is not at all surprising aa the latter are the lowest and most degraded specimens of humanity to bo found anywbore in tho world. Tho Americans who havo swarmed into tho country aro in tho main a bad lot, composod of bonier ruffians, filibusters, speculators, coarse adventurers and broken down professional men. Tho Mexicans fear and suspect these now-enmers snd it must be admitted that until we send a better class of settlors thore we can not expect our flag, our civilization and our citizons to bo rcspeotod.

There is a newsboy who comes io the ofllce of ono of onr busy neighbors a great metropolitan daily every afler noon, for the btiudlo of papers which he sells. His mother lias a stand upon a breezy corner, a few blocks away. Sorao times he conies tilono, but usually sbo is with bim. Ho is only a littlo fellow, ton or twolve years old. Bhe is old olilor looking than one would suppose per haps, after all, sho is bis grandmother. We hnve watched them a dozen times during tho winter, going up the slippery steps, along tho icy pavement, across the crowded thoroughfare. She is harsh featured, stoops, is very limit I motive, Her clothing, though not discreditable, is very plain nnd cheap, nnd has been altogether too light for tlio season. The littlu fellow's face is always bright and cheerful. Onco or twice wo havo fol lowed them from the ollieo to tho news stand. He chatters to her nil the way. His bright young face is often upturned to her grave, wrinkled one, and ho seems always to havo some message of hope for her old heart. Hmtill as he is, he never allows her to cross the street without tlio utmost watchfulness for ve hicles passing either way. Ho never permits her to climb tho steps without assistance from his ready band. While he carries under one arm a portion of the package thoy bear away from tho of ilco, he is always careful to seo that sho is not only protected from any barm, but also shielded, as much as possible, from discomfort. Again aud again, when tlio cohl wind has thrown tho thin, black shawl from tho arm under which alio carries her bundle of papers, wo have seen Iho littlo fellow pnsa around to that sido, carefully and tenderly gather the Hying garment, tuck it under her arm, so aa to protect it from thn cold, and then return to luko her othor arm, and guide her safely along tho lliiiruiighfiiro. Ho does tins without onco ceasing his pretty chatter without a word uf suggestion from her but with (lint honest kindliness, that delieato re gard for others' comfort, (hut marks only tlio very fluent gotility. (lotl bless the little fellow I lie may never know thut any ono bus noted his thoughtful care; he may never even dremu that his cheerful and kindly consideration forliis aged friend is anything worthy of note, but one, nt least, has man him, and has Imhui cheered and elevi 4ed by bis sweet courtesy. Ono heart, at least, has warmed with love for tlio gallant littlo man, nud thanked Ood that chivalry is Hot yet dead iu our great busy hive. If wo wero to publish a list of tlio gentle men of New York, an some of our con temporaries havo recently done of those whoso estates aro represented by six llg nres, and their souls too often bv six ciphers, wo would find out this littlo newsboy's name, aud write it first of all upon tho roll of honor. Wo would not bo nfraid to wager something that tlio littlo fellow has already beguu to tako a man's part iu tho world's life, and given his dimo toward the erection of a pedestal of the Hurtholdi Btutiio of Lib erty. Ho is iho very style of boys that men aro mndo of real men, und not mcro gilded maunikius Has the Enrlli a Ring I There aro all kinds of rings in the InisiuoKS nnd political world, but tho greatest ring of nil is the ono which some astronomers say is forming outside tho atniosphoro of the earth. There aro pooplo who gravely maintain that the extraordinary sunsots ami sunshines which havo boon noticed for months art duo to tlio formation of a ring or lings nrottnd our ourtli, similar to those re vealed with the teloscopo encircling the plniiet Sal urn. No scientist of note has dared, 11s yet, to seriously consider this theory, but thoso sunsets aro, neverthe less, ns great a mystery as evor. That thoy aro duo to moisture iu the atmos phere, or to dust hurled np into the air nt the volcanic eruptions last Btimmor iu Java, is now discredited. A lady has ventured tlio surmiso that tho red sun sets aro duo to an effect on the part of tho sun to adjust itself to tho new stand ard time, but, of course, this is a joke. it is clear that tuore aro more tilings in heaven aud earth, unexplained, than aro dreamed of, not only by tho philosophy but by tho sotonoe of modern times. Demurest MimtMy, Imported Cabbages. Tho season lor imported cabbages is nearly over, A very largo business is done in New York, where lino ciibbngcB command SIC per hundred.
