White, lately our minister to Russia, has shown that there are more murders in the United States in proportion to its population than in any other country on the globe.

The Canton News gives publication to the following interesting facta: On fourth class merchandise, the rail roads charge 50 cents per hundred from Milwaukee to Pierre, and they charge 48 cents per hundred from Sioux Falls to Pierre. The rate from bioux Falls to Alcester, about Tfty miles, is 29 cents per hundred, and the rate from Milwau kee to Alcester, about 500 miles, is ex actly the same as frsm Sioux Falls, 20 cents. The railways either haul out of Milwaukee 450 miles for nothing, a thing no one supposes they are able to do, or they charge too muoh from Hioux Falls. The rate from Sioux Falls to Garretson and Sioux City to Garretson on some classes of freight, are just the same, al though the distance from Sioux City to Garretson is nearly three times as great as from Sioux Falls. A friend shipped the writer a barrel of apples somtf time siuce from Baraboo, Wis. The freight from Baraboo to Sioux Falls was 85 ceuts ana the freight from Sioux Falls to Canton (less than one-twentieth of the distance from Baraboo to Sioux Falls) was one dollar. Oh, no, the railroads do not discriminate against the people of the state, but will they pleuce explain these figures? Mellete, dispatch, 8: Hon. E. A.

Senator Hili'.s gadery play at Senator Pettigrew's expense with the Argus Laadwr's false report of the Huron con vention, did not win him any votes against the investigation of the adminis tration-Wall stre-t bond steal.

Chauncey Depew, against whom no one would think of charging a puritan in spirit, speaka as follows on the tem perance question: "Twenty-five years ago I knew every man, woman and child in Peekskill. And it has been a study with me fo mark boys who started in eveby grade of life with myself, to see what has become of them. I was up last fall, and began to count them over, and it mis an instructive exhibit. Some of them became clerks, merchants, manu facturers. lawyers, and doctors. It is remarkable that everyone of those that drank is dead not one living of my age. Barring a few who were taken by sickness, every one who proved a wreck and wrecked his family, did it from rum and uo other cause. Of those who were church-going people, who were frugal and thrifty, every single one of them without an exception, owns the bouse in which he lives, and has something laid by, the interest of which, with His house, would carry him through many a rainy day. When a man becomes de based with gambling, rum or drink, he does uot care all his finer feelings are crowded out. The poor women at home are the ones who suffer—suffer in their tendereut emotions, suffer in their affections for these whom they love better than life." It will be a great blessing if bojs will not only read this, but will determine that, with God's help they will never drink the first glass.—Young Reaper. The cause of total abstinence re ceives this bit of testimony from the Chicago Herald: "Any one coming in* to contact with the swifter currents of city life will learn thftt there are hun dreds of men who abstain from drinking not because they have certain objects in life, and have learned by experience or observation that the use of whisky would interfere with tbeir plans. They are well oontent that other men in their same lne of business, or those with whom they deal, should drink, if they want to drink, but as calculating sports and speculators, they have gone orer the records and have decided that the liquor habit is a handicap." It is stated that the drink bill of the House of Commons lor .toon* lor ttvw foootb^ v V(r cording to latest otticial returns, is a very large amount for each, when temperance memler» are deducted. Small wonder that temperance legisla tion makes no headway in England. 4rre .t« A .Mii.u \i KKK. HOH'I!I:I 1 !l*Ve ItX'l i Mii.WAL'KKK.
