EIHTORIAL NOTES.
"'' flon't tn Mingy Wlih ibe Wife.
t Although wives are often unreasonable and
mlt-noding and dissatisfied, yot they cannot
be censured for wishing some slight degree of
Jnincial Independence. Husband ought to
ondentand this feeling, and sympathize with
It, If they will set asido fur a wifo a certain
pun per month, no matter how small, and let
It be her very own, subject to her own wishes,
they will find that In every respect it Is tho
best investment they ever made. . .
"Chicle."
Chewing gum 1 ma'lo fro chicle, a gum
which exudes from a Mexican tree, the fruit
of which is called napodilla. Tho fruit in
about tho size of an apple and as delicious in
jsvor. The gum is collected by tapping tho
trees, runs out freely, 1 molded In tho sand
Into citkes, baidening in tho sun, and Is
brought to tho market on pack mules, each
Binle carrying about 300 pounds. When tho
natives start out on a long Journey they nl
ways provide themselves with chblo in order
to allay tho pangs of thicst, for by chewing
Ibe pun t lie mouth and throat aro kept uioUt
and the desiro for water diminished.
A Wonderful Hiirglrnl I'rnt.
I Trof. Sabine, of tho (,'ollcgo of l'hysics and
Burgeons, tho leading rhliioplastia or skin
grafting surgoon of the world, has dismissed
U cured, from B.'lltvuo Hospital, Thoniaa
Colt, a scrofulous patient. Threo months ago
tho discaso ato away most of Cult's nose, com
pletely d stroying tho bono and leaving only
portions of tho nostrils. Dr. Sabino cut away
tho diseased portions and grafted upon tho
face tho middlo finger of tho patient's left
hand, making a nns. Tho operation waa suc
cessful, tho patient gaining a noso and losing
twojulutsof ono finger. Medical men pro
nounce Dr. Sahines's feat the moat wouderfnl
In the records of rhinoplnstio surgery.
A Knlirr Second Thoiitlit.
Tho railroads of Tennessee, at hast nine
tenths of them, are struggling desperately to
pay the interest on their Imndcd debt and keep
out of tho hauils of reeelvors. It is not only
so now, but has been for several years. They
need all tho help tho peoplo can give tin in.
Nolkiug would bo mora hurtful to tho material
interests of the State than to havoour railroads
In receivers' bauds, I'oliticians, if they aro
observing men (and they ought to be), can seo
tliii, but t'i'ro seems still to bo a few reckless
men who lmpo to rido into ofllco upon tho
railroad hobby. Let thctii bo very careful;
sober second thought has tnken hold of tho
people, who aro unwilling to further encour
age the attempt to oripplo our roads by plac
ing them at tho mercy of apolitical machine
called a Commission, with power to barrass or
inflict injury upon them.
Tho Ptimelitrr ortlio Snlnm.
BoutherncrB aru nut likely to suffer from a
further Invasion of Mormons. The application
of the shotguu policy to the Cane Creek colony
of Later Day Saints, in Tennessee, is a warn
ing against Mormon migration to tho South
which is likely to bo effectual. The slaughter
of several Mormon ciders by a party of masked
men was a horribla affair, but far less horrible
than the Mountain Meadow massacre, which is
said to havo hud tho sanction of Brigham
loung. The murder of Mormons is to bo
sevorely condemned, however regardless of hu
man life tholr church may have been lu the
accomplishment of its purposes hut the
slaughter in TcnnesBeo is significant ns show
ing tho abhorrenco with which, the Mormon
social system la regarded. The expression of
the focllng was very wrong, bnt the feeling
itself was right, and when it is ss lutenso
throughout the wholo Union as it appears to
be in Tennessee, tho abohtlon of the Mormon
Infamy will be at hand.
A C'nt Her Own Burgeon.
' A Now York cat displayed marvelous intelli
gence roccntly. She belongs to a surgeon and
his actually acquired the capacity uf distin
guishing between tho different surgical terniB.
. Hero is ft clear proof. Hho got a swelling in
her side lately and her master said in her pres
ence, "I'll havo to get you lanced, old girl,"
and then left tho room to fetch a young sur
geon. Tho cat evidently knew what lancing
meant, for sho at onco Jumped on tho led, bit
at her sido until tho blood eamo and thus
lanced herself. When her master returned
' with tho young surgeon ho saw what sho had
flono and at onco instructed his friend to
(itch the wound. His friend did so, but as
soon as the cat got frco sho set her teeth to tho
stitchos and toro them open. The strangest
' thing was that tho swelling disappeared in a
few days, and tho cut proved to her master's
satisfaction that In undoing tho stitchts sho
had shown a nioro thorough knowledge of
wrgory thau ho had.
to her shoulders at the earliest posslblo mo
ment, and sho drops it only when old age,
prematura I lit merciful, robs hor of power to
carry It longer I havo seen sweet little girls,
of 12 or 14, stuggoiing down a mountain side,
or along a rough pathway, under tho weight of
bundles of faggots as largo as their bodies,
which they no sooner dropped than thry hur
ried back for others. I havo seen girls of 15
or 16 years, hare-footed and bare-headed, in
tho blistering rays of an August sun, breaking
up the ground by swinging mattocks heavy
enough to tax the strength of an able-bodied
man. And I havo known a young miss no
older thau theso to bo cmployidas a porter for
carrying tho laggngo of tn. .-elcrs up and
down tho steepest mountain path in all tho
region round about. Sho admitted that it was
sometimes very hard to take another step, but
yet sho must do it. And sho carried such an
amount of baggage ! A stout-limbed guido is
protected by tho law, so that he cannot 1h
compelled to carry abivo twenty-llvo pounds,
but tho limit to tho burdens often put upon
girls is their inability to stand up under any
thing more, Hut tho burden increases with
the ago and strength of tho burden-bearers,
till, by the time girls havo couio to woman
hood, there is no sort of menial toil in which
they do not bear a haiid-and qui to commonly
the chief band.
How Cotton I Crowing.
Tho following is tho National Cotton Kx.
change report of growing crops for August!
Tho month of August has proven unfavorable
for tho cotton crop, and tho condition has
deteriorated, it being now SO, as against 87 for
July, 85 for Juno and 81 for May. lit. tho last
report it was said, in tho Atlai.tiu States, Ala.
baniaaud parts of Mississippi tho crop has
grown rapidly, and is very sappy and exposed
to a loss of fiuit from a hot and dry spell,
This fear has been realized, and in South Car
olina, Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi tho
loss from shedding and rust has been serious,
causing a decliuo in the condition. West of
the Mississippi tho continued drouth in Texas
lias further injured tho crop lu that state,
bringing the condition down quito low, while
Louisiana and Arkansas now need rain, though
tho damage has not yet proved very serious.
These two latt r states, with Tennessee, rank
the highest. Our meteorological table shows a
lower rango of thermometer than last year,
but ruing to execssivo llgures tho last wok.
The rainfall has fallen belo w tho small figures
of last season. Tho growth of the plant has
on tlio nhole been pretty good over most of
the belt excepting Texas, of course, and tho
fruitage fair, but this has been offset by shed
ding. Tho plant is still backward, from two
to threo weeks, and tho crop, therefore, cx
nostd to vicisiiudi from early or even the
avtrago frost. Worms havo done scarcely any
damage, ricking will become, general from
tho 10th to tho 15th of Srpfoiuber, and later iu
the northern part of the belt.

Wild Wit
T.lvlnu After firnth.
At length it is beginning to lie recognized iu
France that tho brain of a decapitated crim
inal lives and consciousness is maintained for
an appreciable time, which to the victim may
seem an airo after death an opinion wo
expressed sovoral years ago. This ghastly fact
as we have no doubt it is-being pereoived,
it Is beginning to bo felt that executions can
sot any longer be carried out by the guillotine.
. riussio acid is now proposed. If instantauc
; ous death be desired, this is clearly admissible
The period takon to torminato lifo by poison of
any kind must needs vary greatly with tho in
dividual. Iii not a hiuall proportion of instan-
cei we fancy death by prusBio acid would bo
' considerably protracted, and although long
' dying is not so horriblo as living after death
' o to say-yet it is strongly opposed to tho
i Interests of humanity to protract the aony of
fellow creature dvitm by the hand of justice.
Electricity is another agent suggested. We
doubt the possibility of applying this agent so
' as to destroy lifo instantly. We confess that,
' looking at tho nu t cr all round, wo incline to
" think that hanging, when properly performed,
. destroys conBcioubncss more rapidly, and pro
vents Its return more effectually, than any
t other mode of death which Justice can employ.
It is against tho bungling way of hanging wo
: protest not against the method of executing
. itself. This is, on tho whole, the best, we aro
convinced.
