The favorite amusement of the em peror of China is to spin a top. Presley Comegys, Eugene, Nevada, has a G) pound potato. Consumptives are cured in France by visiting the wine presses and in haling the fumes of the fermenting juice. Ground has been broken at Crystal Park, Col., for a railroad to the top of Pike's Peak, 14,200 feet above sea level. Every 821 individuals in England and "Wales have a policeman to look after them. Cornell University has an Egyptian student He is a bright young fel low, and particularly gifted as a speaker. A new device has been patented in London for generating electricity at so small a cost that it will be cheaper than gas. The Altoona, Florida, Argus, has a sixteen-ounce orange, a sixteen-foot sugar cane, and a nine-foot blade of parlc grass. The ebony treo grows to be fifteen feet in circumference. The outer wood is pure white, the heart only being perfectly black. A bushel of timothy contains 55, 000,000 of seed. A cock-roach has 3,000 teeth. There are -190,000 mole cules in an ant's brain. W. B. Johnston has just ended at "Webster, Massachusetts, a buggy ride of eight months' duration, his start ing place having been San Francisco. "When your friend is married put your good wishes into the shape of an old English saying: "One year of joy, another of comfort, and all the rest of content" The fish laws of Canada are becom ing more and more strict year by year, and a notable increase in the supply is being afforded, the fish also being of a much better quality and size. One of the curiosities of old Muck ros Abbey, near Killarney, Ireland, is one of the finest yew trees in Europe, planted by the monks some 500 years ago. In some places the ivy has grown entirely through the abbey walL In the days of the war a New York junk dealer amassed a fortune by buying line linen clippings from shirt makers and selling them to the gov ernment for the manufacture of treas ury note paper. He bought at six cents a pound and sold at seventy cents. Now his family turn up their noses at statesmen and college presi dents who do not put livery on their servants. Oshkosh is to be credited with the latest novelty in osculation. A rather dashing beauty kissed a pious-looking citizen as ho stood demurely on a street corner, and then with a darling little shriek of "Oh! you are not my papal" darted away. When the eld erly gentleman had recovered from his laughing fit over the luscious mis take, he found that the artless creat ure, when she left so abruptly, was accompanied by his diamond breast pin. The first institutions resembling tho pawnshops of to-day were founded in the thirteenth century by merchants from Lombard- who settled in Eng land and France, and afterwards in the other countries of Europe. These usurers flourished and grew fat upon their enormous profits. Noblemen, and even kings, were compelled to seek the financial aid of these money lenders, and it is recited that Edward III and Richard EE pawned with them tho crown jewels of England. Lom bard streot in London, and tho Eue des Lombards in Paris are memorials of these ancient pawnbrokers. Probably the most wonderful tree in the world is the Baobab bread tree. It grows only to the height of forty feet, but is thirty foet in diam eter. The age of this tree is quite incalculable. Humboldt considers it "the oldest living organic monument of our planet" A good sized room can be cut in the trunk of tho Baobab, with comfortable accommodations for thirty men, and the tree still live and flourish. The fruit, which is nour ishing, is about a foot long. The tree grows very slowly? a specimen at Kew, England, which is more than SO years old, having only attained a hight of one and a half feet The oldest known Baobabs are estimated to be over 5,000 years old. A Mormon Scheme. A citizen of Salt Lake says tho Mormons regard the reference to polygamy in the President's message as a menace to their political power and to their theocratic control of tho territory, that their interests are too great for them to emigrate and that they recognize the fact that the peo ple of the United States wrongly re garded polygamy as the only legal objection to Mormonism, whereas tho fact is polygamy is simply an ugly feature, the real trouble being the Mormon priesthood's assumption of the divine right to rule. That they recognize the fact that their whole system is jeopardized if they retain polygamy; whereas with that feature abolished they would be like ly to have an indefinite lease of life for the Mormon theocracy. The pres ent legislature, though made up of monogamous Mormons, is yet thor oughly a creature of the church., it is probably therefore that while the church will keep up a sham show of opposition it will instruct the legisla ture to pass a law making polygamy a crime, ana the territory would thus be purged of the only wronc known to the general public. Then it will apply for admission as a state, with good prospects of getting in, and giving polygamists porportionally an increased power. Tho San Francisco trustees of the Lick estate, over which there has been so much squabbling, have at last decided to pay over the amounts left by James Lick for construction of asylums and.other institutions men tioned in the will The amounts foot up $315,000. "Washikgtox, Dec 12. A joint meeting of the National and Execut ive Committees of the Union .League which was held in this city to-day to consider and decide upon the policy of the league overthrowing tho Bour bons as soon as possible in the South ern Slates. The subject to which all the speakers devoted most of their attention was the necessity of afford ing protection to the colored people of the South. Governor Pierrepont referred with strong disapprobation to the timidity or indifference of Congress m passing over the enormous crimes which have been committed in tho South against a free vote. If the colored men there are to lie protected the white men must protect them. Itepresentative Houck said in tne southern stales where the leaders of the Bourbon party believe in fraud and force, there would never be an other fair election until the north was convinced that they could not control the government O Hara, (colored), of North Caro lina, expressed the opinion that the colored people of tho south should protect themselves and advance their own interests by working in combi nation. Boutelle said: 1 believe it is the imperative duty of the Republican party to encourage anybody who join hands with us to break down any at tempt to prevent a free ballot A committee was appointed to de cide upon a lino of policy, and re ported the following: ""We believe, to overthrow JJourbonism and mis rule in the south, it will be necessary to secure the support of southern white men, who will act and co-oper ate with colored voters, and protect them ui voting and secure a fair count, we recommend the appoint ment of a committee of nine, the president and secretary to be ex-officio chairman and secre- tarv to take consideration of ways and means to be adopted to overthrow Bourbonism and misnilc, and, as soon as practicable, to issue an address to the public, setting forth emphatically the condition at the present time, and appeal to the pat riotism of the South to save itself from utter misrule and ruin, and for the North to make a liberal sacrifice in behalf of the objects in view by this committee and to act in co-operation with and subordinate the exec utive committee of the league, which is requested to assist the committee in the advancements of its objects. Tho report was adopted. The com mittee will at onco take steps to per fect a plan for the league. The Astoria Land Grant. "While we are of the opinion that further grants are not needed to de velop tho country, yet it is not the wise thing to join in condemning the past, and become a party to the un doing of grants that were given in good faith, and so accepted, brants that were made and accepted, but by untoward circumstances were not completed within the specified time yet were and are being pushed to completion as fast as tho circum stances of the caso will admit, should be respected and hold good. Jsut where it is evident that compliance with the terms of the grant is not in tended, and no reasonable offort is being made to comply, prompt action ought to be takeu by congress to re store those lands to the public domain ; such, for instance, as that portion of the grant to tho Oregon Central Railroad company situated between Forest Grove and Astoria. Nothing is being done to earn those lands, and from recent correspondence it is clear that nothing will be done in ihe near future, if over. Salem Statesman. General nancock arrived at San Francisco last "Wednesday evening. Ho was met at the ferry landing by Governor Stonemau and different delegations representing the munici- palty, also citizens of ban Jj rancisco and Democratic state central com mittee, who accompanied him to the Palace hotel. "When he reached there he was tendered quite an ovation by tho immense crowd who had as- smbled to get a glimpse of the famous general. On alighting from the car riage the general was received with tremendous cheering Then he was conducted to a reception room, and from there to his apartments in the hotel. Tho general acknowledged, in a few words, the complimentary reception that had been tendered to him, and at the same time expressed fatigue at the long journey. The executive committee of the board of directors of the Oregon Transcontinental have recommended that the January dividend le passed. A. V.
