A Stndjr orAdvcrtUlnc. 

I From tbc AmerlcAO.J 
The liilelllgent newnpaper reader earJy dl«- 
oovera tbal fbo inlefestof any Journal U by 
no means coufiucd to wbat U commonly 
described as Us "readla* mailer." Tbe 
tbougbflc'*^ person may Ibrow away a sup- 
plem ent, unlocked al beyond the hasty glance 
which shows him thni It la devoted to adver- 
tlsemenU; but the trained ob»eryer fecog 
nizcs the fact that this department of the pa- 
per deserves examination and will repay 
atudy. The local columns reconi the events 
of the previous day ; but no such record can 
give the Mtrangcr so comprehensive a view 
of the city's business life and social activity 
as la presented In the Advertising depart- 
ment. / 
Since the daily papers of our larger cities 
began the pul>liealion of Sunday editions, 
there has been a growing dixposillon to 
make the first day of the week the great d ly 
far advertising. This tendency Is already 
apparent lu th« ciwes of the Philadclphis 
TimcH and Pr«Wl, Hllhough neither has long 
published a Sunday eilliion; it h more con- 
HDlcuoun In Chicago paper*, aud e*i>ecUlly 
in the Tiibune'M Sunday edii ion, which for 
years has been laniou"- In the west as an ex- 
ceedingly protltaide issue; and it ia most 
marked m tlie citse of the New York Herald. 
There Is sound reason in this disposiilon 
J* of advertisers to patronize most liberally the 
Sunday papers. In? the first place, they 
L. • reach a larger circle of readers, for, as a rule, 
papers which appear on everr day of tbe 
week puliiisb their largest tdition on Sun- 
day. Then, too, there are not only more 
readers than on oth-ir days, but their greater 
leisure allows Ihera to pi^ruse the paper more 
thorou^lilv. Many a man who finds himself 
•0 pressed for time on week-days that he 
aearcely xives a glance to the advertisements, 
will read lliein with considerable cure on his 
davofrest. Finally, there Is a great saving 
' of 'lime and money to the coinniunltv in hav- 
ing one dsy of the seven fixed upon by com- 
mon consent as the lime for those classes ol 
advertisements which appeal to large num- 
bers of persons, like announcements regard- 
l '' '■ ing employment, houses, rooms, etc., the 
"small ads," as they are known in the count- 
iog-room vernacular. The'*small ads-' in a 
large cily alwaya gravitate to some one pa- 

Eer, and, when once Uut paper has come to 
e recojfiiized as their medium, no'hing !• 
more difficult than for a rival to deprive it of 
iU supremacy in this fi -hi. In Philadelphia, 
these classes of advertisements long since be- 
came the especiiil province ol the Public 
Ledger; in B;dlimore. they are found In the 
Sun; in CIdcago, the Sunday Tribune is their 
recognized organ. The New York Herald. 
' years ago, became the medium lor "small 

ads" in the metropolis, and its Sunday edi- 
' tlon the favorite of sucli advertisers, as well 

as of all others who seek the ear of the pub- 
lic. Enjoving this advantage, published in 
tbe greatest city of tbe union, and claiming 
the largest circulation In the United States, 
it is inevilabic that the New York Herald of 
Sunday should he a great advertiiiiiig aheet. 
Oreat seems, indeed, a modest word to de- 
scribe It; some such adjective as mammoth, 
which is of the class that the Herald aff'ects, 
does not appear al all uureasonuble. Espe- 
cially is this true in the spring season, when 
advertising always touches high-water mark. 
One of these issues is well worth a critical 

To' begin with, the buyer of a Sun lay Her- 
ald is appalled at the uinount of p!i|)er which 
is handed him in return for his five cents. 
- Sheet after sheet drops out as he attempts to 

Set tbc mass in shape for n ading, until he 
nds that it Is septnplo in form— In other 
words, consists of no fewer than twenty- 
eight pages, or one hundred and sixty-eight 
columns. There is no lack of reading mat- 
ter, for scattered thiuugh these pages are to 
— .. be found fifty-eight columns of such matter, 
or a little over enough to-fill an eight-page 
sheet. But tbe reading matter occupies only 
a trifle over a third of the entire apace. 
There are one hundred and ten columns de- 
voted to advertising. The first thing that 
strikes one is the great number of people 
who have contributed to tbe columns. 
There arc, lo be sure, some large adverti^ers ; 
four of the six columns on the very first page 
are taken by a single dry goods firm. But 
the great majority of the columns are filled 
with dozens and even scores of small adver 
tisemenls. Sometimes a whole column con- 
tains no single Hnnounceinent that exceeds 
four lines, while mostorils ingredients con- 
sist of only two lines apiece. It is surpris- 
• fug liow many of these small advertisements 
can be packed away in a column. A count 
of one such column shows eighty-nine dis- 
tinct paragraphs. This is considerably above 
the averuge, being under the bead "Boarders 
Wanted," where the advertiser usually con- 
fines himself to his street, numl>er and not 
over a dozen words descriptive of quarters, 
character of fare and price. It is easy to be- 
lieve, after examining such a column, that the 
advertisers In tbc whole sheet must consti- 
tute a small army; and yet the figures are 
atartling. Examination sliows that there are 
in a single issue advertisements by 5,038 per- 
aons — cnougli to make a sizable town. 

To reduce so unwieldy a mass lo any sem- 
blance ol order must needs be a difficult task, 
especially when one remembers that adver- 
tisements are received until a late hour of the 
evening before publication. Nevertheless, a 
system is pursued which enables one easily 
tofind ihe columns which contain the class 
of advertisements in which he is interested. 
At the head of the first page is u "Directory 
for Advertisers," which contains seventy- 
four titles. Suppose, lor instance, you want 
to find a furnished room. Look down the 
alphabetical li^t in the directory until you 
find the head -Furnished Rooms and ^art- 
tnents lo Let," and you are directed to '"20th 
page, 8d and 4th cols.; 7th page, 3d and 4th 
cols.: and 2d page, 3d and 4t.h cols." 

Nobody will he surprised to learn that 
*'Dry Goods" occupies more room than any 
other head in this directory, filling some- 
thing over sixteen of the one hundred and 
ten columns. Real estate comes next ; Indeed, 
taking all its piiases. It covers a larger terri- 
tory. There are nearly six columns of "City 
Beat Estate for Sale," two mora of "Real 
Bstate at Auction," a half-column of "Real 
BsUite lo Exchange," and another half-col- 
umn of"Rcnl Estate Wanted;" while, under 
tbe cognate beads of "Property Out of the 
Oily for Sale or to Rent," Brookl> n property, 
Westchester county, and other suburban di- 
visions, are found as many more columns. 
To these should be added nearly three col- 
umns of advertisements regarding flats, 
which give the reader a new idea of the 
large share in domestic economy which thii 
•tvw of living has already come to occupy. 
Tm announcementa cover all grades and va- 
rlelie* of tastes and pockets. As one adver- 
tliement puts it, "Aristocratic flats, f 75 to 

tlM; Otbera, $20 to f65." Then there are 
itwaeo five and six columns of "Dwelling 
HooiM to Bent," both furnished and unfur-, 
nisbed; over three columns of "Furnished 
Rootat and Apartments to.Lcl," and another 
oolumn of unfurnished rooms— a number of 
eoiumns, be it remembered, containing sev> 
•otr or eighty advertisements. Somewhere

Toualre would provide for his

One of Ihe roost interestltig departments ia 
that which concerns the matter of einploy- 
nieul. The reader will probably be sur- 
priued to see liow many advert Uements 
there are under tlie head of "Help Wanted." 
A single lirm calls for five hundred dress- 
makers, five hundred operators on I iwn and 
cambric suits, and two hundred "iailore>a- 
es." Andtber desires five hundred operators 
on sewing machines, iind a third wants fiOv 
"neat and infelllgent rash l>oys." As one'a 
eye runs down one of llie«e columns, not a 
few curious advertisements are struck. A 
dressmaker wants young ladles "lo try on 
dresses," who must he "tall, slight and nice- 
looking;" a cloak and suit houHe calls for a 
young lady us moilel, specifying that she 
must Ite "of fine figure an«t plessing ad- 
dress." An illustratiou of the broadening 
field for women appears in an advertisement 
for a "lady stenogr.ipher lo report some lect- 
ures." As for "Situations Wanted," tliere 
are columns of ibem, prosaic enough for the 
most part, under the subdivisions of 
••clerks," "^ooks," "laundresses," "coach- 
men," and so on. A notable exception is Ihe 
department of "Professional Situations 
Wantetl- Females," wliere thera is more 
than one announeemeni of which this is a 
WifC: "An Intelligent, refined young lady 
through family reverses seoks employ inent, 
not menial, is a good musician; companion- 
reader, amanuensis, or private secretary; 
would travel." 

The three columns of "Busiiiesi Opportu- 
nities" furnish food for both gudgeons and 
wise men. It is safe lo say that only Ihe 
first of these classes will answer the follow- 
ing advertisement : "$55— Party with this 
amount can clear tiiOOU in Ihe next three 
months." Or iU conipsnion: "Capi<ul 
wanted, that w'll realize 2500 \ttir cent, in a 
yeur." And the prudent investor will prob- 
ably fight shy of the advertiser who seeks a 
"silent partner; immense results anticipat- 
ed." A curious Mnnouncement is that of u 
man who wanU a "partner with |2000 capi- 
tal to 8upi>ort a lady slur and learn the art 
of acting." Even more curious, as well as 
grandiloquent. Is Ihe advertisement for a 
"moneyed partner in Amerii-an and English 
copyright of new, romantic scenic drama, far 
surpassing the most popular productions in 
that line, in its grand, iiMlural, reali«tic and 
novel mechanical scenic eflfects." The plot 
and language of this wonderful production, 
"although highly 8<'nsaiional, are of strictly 
moral tune," anti the advertiser takes 
pains to add that he baa large 
working models of all Ihe scenes and mech- 
anism, "proving everything practicable." 
The announcements In tliese columns are by 
no means confinod lo New York city or its 
viclnitv. A roan in AtlanU, Oa., advertises 
for a physician with five thousand to ten 
tbo'jsanJ dollars' espitsl, as partner in a 
water cure est^iblishment. A daily and 
weekly newspaper in an Interior Texas city 
of 6,000 population is oflfered for sale because 
of the <twner's ill heflllh. But the most cos- 
mo|H>lltan air Ijelongs to the advertisement 
of Ywan Luhmun Sadowsja Dom Finljimd- 
skawo, of Moscow, Russi:i, who wants an 
active, enterprising American, with a capi- 
tal of 9^5,000, to go Into partnership with a 
hardware inanufacturing concern on the 
American plan in Russia. 

There is alwavs something attractive about 
the "Lost and Found" column. One won- 
ders whether the lost cat, "valuable only as a 
children's pet," will ever find its way home 
again, imd whether the poor sewing-girl, 
who lost her purse, containing $12. 07, in an 
elevated railroad car, will find her property, 
and If so, whether the finder will insist upon 
the $5 reward which she ofi'ers for it. The 
number ol offers of a liberal rewai-d, "and 
no questions asked," for the return of miss- 
ing property, cannot fail to attract attention. 
Right in a row are three advertisements of- 
fering rewards of $25, $50 and $.50, "and no 
questions asked," for the recovery of three 
watches, the first two lost in street curs and 
the third stolen. A little below is a siinilar 
offer of $200 for a fourth watch, and there 
are others of the same sort in the case, not 
only of jewelry, but of missing poc feet-books, 
stock cerlificaics, etc. Tbe number of such 
announcements is not flattering to the de- 
tective skill of llie New York poilce force. 

Of curiosities In advertising, there is no 
end. Here, for instance, tlie reader is con- 
fronted by the statement: "Jews boast su- 
perior morality above Christians;" followed 
by the announcement: "Testing that claim I 
solicit confidential information concerning 
Jewish scandals, crimes, suicides," with the 
address of "Siatistician." In another col- 
umn is an advertisement worthy of Colonel 
Mulberry Sellers himsell. It oflTers, for the 
trifling sum ot $10,000, "a paradise" on the 
shores of Ihe Uulf in Florida, among the at- 
tractions being a residence amid broad oaks, 
1500 orange trees, "2000 to a tree," millions 
of limes, lemons, silk-worm trees, bananas, 
guaves and figs, **most delightful climate on 
earth," etc., etc. But space will not permit 
further quotations from this mass of litera- 
ture, which, though it shares tbe dictionary's 
characteristic of l>eing somewhat disconnect- 
ed, will yet be found, like that work, worthy 
of careful study.

Mr. Stfvtn$t— 

1 have suffered acutely from dyspepsia for 
nearly three years, and have besides been sub- 
ject to the severest pangs of rheumatism, which 
came on at llie slichtesi unfavorable ohange la 
the weuther, together with weakness of tbe kid- 
neys. These three tortures combined made my 
ooiidltiou one of great distress, disturbed mv 
re8t, my appetite, and interfered with 
tuy ability to perform my work. I tried a num- 
ber of reinedie.*, but derived little If any beneflt. 
About four months ugu I began to take your Sar- 
saparilla, and can truly say that it has been a 
K'eat bltSHliig to me. 'fhe dyipepitlu has been 
coinpletolv cured. Beiurc btrginning to take the 
medicine 1 could scarcely eat anytlilng withoat 
enduring the distresalug paius of indigestion. 
Now the heurtlest food causes me no trouble. I 
eat with relish and have a better appetite than 
before, aud feel like a new man. I'Lt) rheuma- 
tUui, also, which oauoed me so maoli agony has 
almost eutirely dlst-ppeured. Once lu awhile I 
get a slight twinge of it, but nothing like the old 
paius, aud I am coufldent that the rheumatism 
will be eutirely gone Hi ler another bottle, and 
uot to return ugula. The kidney complaint has 
l>een cured, and this cauMes me even more satis- 
fHCtion than the cure of both the other troubles. 
Sometimes iifter severe work 1 suffered intensely 
from the disease, but now tbe hardest labor does 
not afTect me in the least. I consider vour 8arsa- 
parilla a great boon to all afflicted with dyspep- 
sla, rheumatitnn or kidney oomplaint, and cheer- 
fully give my testimony of its value, hoplas that 
it may encourage others to try It.

Cure ot a Resaarkable Caae of Rbea* 

Mr. Stevenn— Lowell, Deo. 2, 1881. 

For half a dosen years I have been troubled 
with acute rheumatism, but more so than usual 
this full. It affected my back and hips princi- 
pally. I have doctored conMtuntly, and taken 
ubout everything I saw advertitied. 1 began to 
tuke your SaiHaparilla Oct. lU, having very little 
faith in it. I nud taken it only threa days when I 
noticed a marked improvement. I could go up 
(•tairs readily, which was something I could uot 
uccomplish before without the greatest pain. 
Why, only a few days bilore taking it the puin 
was BO terrible as to knock ine down. After 
taking the tlrst bottle 1 felt no return of the 
rheumatUm, even in wet weather. I am now 
tuk'iig tbc second bottle and feel In every way 
better. 1 am cured eutirely so far as I know. I 
am uble to work and travel as well as eVer I 
could In my life, and for the relief I am very 
grateful, aud cordially eiidorce StevenH's Sarsapa- 
rilla aa the best remedy lor rheumatism I ever 
knew. T. D. HADLKY,

the Cure of Her Neuralgia, Hh«'uina« 
liam and Catarrh. 

The following testimonial, we confidently at 
sert, has never been surpassed, if equalled, 
by uny ever given to any remedy. The ven- 
erable ladv who gives it truly regards 
Stevens's Sarsaparilla as a roedidne which 
hu8 prolonged her life, and made her clos- 
ing yours seteue aud peaceful, having relieved 
her of the moKt agonizing ills which humanity is 
ever called upon to sutler. The most skeptical 
reader would be convinced could he hear from her 
own lips the story of her cure, and listen to her 
Invocation of God's blessing upon the proprietor 
uf the medicine which has brought to her so 
much comfort. A description of her sufferings 
aud the grand result of the use of this saving 
remedy is truly and graphically set lorth iu the 
following testimonial : 

Mr: Stevens I— Ix>well, Dec. 18, 1881. 

I am 7fi years of age. During the past hve 
or six years i have suffered so much from sciatic 
rbeumatixm and neuralgia that I though*. I 
should die, and many times 1 wished 1 might, 
in order to be free from puin. I laid out a good 
deal of money in medicines, but got little nelp 
from any of them. I had some of tlie best doctors 
in the city, but they confessed that my case was 
a peculiar one aud they could do nothing for me. 
For five years catarrh has been added to my rain- 
eries. Ii or Ave weeks before taking your Sarsa- 
parilla, I had a terrible racking cough. I tried 
some balsam, but it did me no good. I oonlda'i 
lie down more than fifteen minutes at a time 
without choking up, and I really felt that 1 
couldn't live more than two months. I had, be- 
sides all my other troubles, a large bunch on my 
aeiBk, larger than an Euglish walnut, which tbe 
doctors said could not bt cured. My rest was 
broken, I could do no more work about tbe house, 
and was even scarcely able to walk. Withoat 
saying a word to any one, because all iu the 
bouse had font all faith in medicines, I managed 
to get to the horse cars and by tbem to your store 
for a bottle of the Sarsaparilla. I hati seen the 
teatimenialB in the Courier, and felt that perhaps 
it might help me as well as others. I did not ex 
pect it would make me a new person, but I hoped 
it would relieve me a little. Ttils was Oct. 11. 
I bad scarcely taken the first three doses before I 
felt a change for the better. In three er four 
nights I was able to sleep without disturbance, 
aud my rest was perfect. The first bottle cured 
the bunch on my neck, which has now completely 
disappeared. 1 felt the sciatic rheumatism leav- 
ing me. I became able to walk without tr ouble 
and to work about the house. The catarrh 
gradually decreased. I could not begin te tell 
you all the good the Sarsaparilla has doue for 
me. As an Instance of the improvement 1 may 
state that I was able to walk from my house, 100 
High street, to your store on Middlesex street lor 
the second t>ottie, Nov. 22. The Sarsaparilla has 
entirely renewed my system, und 1 feel us well as 
1 did forty years ago. I am now perfectly happy. 
The Sarsaparilla has been a great comfort to me, 
and I hope that God will bless you lor it. I am 
able to work now, and to eqjoy life as i have not 
done for many long years'. I may add that my 
daaghter and her hutiband have aiso used the 
jnemcinr, and tfiey have found much relief from 
lt« as it has improved their appetites and helped 
Uiem in other ways. Yours gratefully,

they became so Inflamed, and In a short time she 
was totally unable to tee, as mqch'ao at If she

elaat and medicines seemed unable to effept acure. 
Wa bad tried Hood's Sarsaaartlia. hot It ^lad to 
4ialp. Finally we were Inonced to try Stevens's 
Sarsaparilla. The first bottle made a wonderful 
ehanie. llie eyelids gradually reopened, the 
•oreness passed away, the desire to rub the eyes 
was diminished, and by the time tbe first bottle 
was exhausted Orele oould see quite well and use 
liar eyes wit hodt pain.. We oontlnned the laedi- 
alae, and the benefit ateadlly prograaaed, aatll 
we new look forward with aoaMMioe to aa en-

The otbor day a atout aroman, arroad wllb 
an umbrella and laadlng a amaU urobin, 
oalleU at tbe offloa of a New York boys' 

story paper.

and she Jlfked the urchin iiround by the ear 
and brouKht 'i*^!* umbrt^liu down on the desk. 

**We publish stories for boys," replied ibe 
young mail ovaslvelv. 

'*I want to know if these are tbe premises 
on which tbe during lad springs upon bia fi- 
ery mustang, und ditrliiig through the uin-Je 
of Ibundcr-Klrucit suvages, cuts the uiiptive's

dering Indians have recovered from their

after. I want lo know if that sort of thing

brellu around her lioud ttiid launched u crack 
at tbe young inuu'i* hendi 

"I don't remenibi-r lllOOO specinc acta," 
protested the young num. 

••I want to linow if this is the preeinot 
where tbu advemurous boy Jumps on tbe 
buck of a bulTalo and willi unerring aim 
picks olT one by one the Idoodthirsty pursu- 
ers, who bite I lie <lusi at evt-ry crack of bis 
faithful rifle! I'm looking for the place 
where that sort of thing hiippeiis!" and this 
time she brought tin; iinkicky young man a 
tremendous whiick across ihe buck. 

"I think—" began the dodging victim. 

*'I''ra in search of the shup In which tbe 
boy road agent lioUU the quivering stage 
driver powerless with his glittering eye, 
while he robs the male passengers with an 
adroitness born of a long und tried experi- 
ence^ and kisses tliu hands of the lady passen- 
gers with H gallantry of bearing that l>e- 
apeaks noble birth and a chivalrous nature," 
acreumcd tbe woman, driving the young 
niun into the corner. "I'm looking for tlie 
apartment ii> which that business is tran-'uct- 
ad," and down came the umbrella wilh trl)> 
bammer fori«on the young man's head. 

"Upon my aoul, 'ma'am—" gasped tbe 
wretched youth. 

"I want to bo Introduced to tbe Jars 
In which vou keep the boy scouts of the 
Sierras 1 6how me the. bins lull of the boy 
detectives of the prairie! Point out lo me 
tbe barivlsfull of boy pirates of the Bpiniish 
main!" and with each dennind she dropped 
tbe umbrella on the young man's skull, until 
he skipped over tho desk and sought safety 
In a neighboring canyon. 

'•I'll leach »euil" she panted, grasping the 
urchin by the oar und b-uding nlin off. "I'll 
teach 'em lo make It good or dance. Want 
to go fight ludluns any more? Wailt to

With each question she hammered tbe 

Selping urchin until Uu l)ones were sore uud 
e protested hia permanent abanduniuoul of 
all the glories enuinuraled.

After he had explaiued that the old woman 
was bound and determined to have n new bed- 
room carpet, and that being in town 
be thought hf'd take it homo and surprise 
ber, he added that ho wanted enough Inham 
carpet to cover u room seven by eleven. 

"You mean ingrain," said the dealer. 

"Well, I 'siM)***: it's all Ibc same. How 
much is thai piece?" 

"Seventy cents a yard." 

"AwlXjlly steep, but kinder purty. How 
long will it wear?" 

'*0h, ten or twelve years." 

"Can it he turned?" 


"Anything to get out of repair?" 


"Will tbe colors fade?" 

"Tbey are warranted not to." 

"Seventy cents a yard, ell? Well, I rath- 
«r like It. Can tbe old womnu sew it togetb- 

"Ob, ves." 

"And'l can nail it down, I reckon?" 

"You can." 

The number of yards required were cut off, 
rolled up and paid for, and the buyer soou 
departed. Two hours bad passed and bis 
call bad been forgotten, when he drove up to 
tbe store, leuped lo Ibe walk, and running In

MONDAY, MAY 1, 1882. 

ThU is the first day of May and we have 
upt had a really warm, balmy day this spring. 
The trees show scarce a sign of life, and the 
lawns arc barely starting into greenness. It 
Is a backward spring, but we shall soon be 
complaining of the heat. 

The alleged attempt at bribery of a mem- 
ber of the iegislHtare by offering him a trip 
pass on a ruilioaJ turns out as small a matter 
as we supposed it would. When members 
get trip passes by custom on every railroad 
in the connnouweullh, for the asking, the al- 
legation that one would vote differently from 
what he otherwise would for the sake of a 
pass Is too absurd to be worth a minute's In- 
vestigation. ^^^^^^^^^^ 

The state PrU*n. 

The Worcester Spy says the warden of the 
■tiite prison Is not to blame for the miserable 
condition of things at that establishment, for 
be does the best he can with what the slate 
allows him. It winds up Its paragraph, 
toowcver, by telling how the Concord prison 
was ill advised and ill-managed at the begln- 
uing. Why not give ex-warden Chamber- 
lain the tiamc charity and consideration as 
warden Earle receives, and make the com- 
monwealtli his scape-goat also? It is begin- 
ning to be realized ibat the management of 
between 700 and 800 criminals U no boy's 
play, and that the "caramel system" will not 
tinswer as ageneral rule. There are several 
prisoner* now in solitary confinement at the 
prison who defy all decent treatment, and 
who are left to their filth and their vermin 
because nothing else can be done with them . 
To attempt to keep them clean, and make 
them obey the ordinary rules, would require 
many men, and the exposure to much dan'^ 
ger, while the application of neqossary disci- 
pline would probably be met with a general 
howl at the "cruelty" of the management. The 
flgUting among the prisoners is of daily oc- 
currence, and It cannot be helped. Desper- 
ate men like those In the prison will fight 
when opportunity offers. What shall be 
done with tbcraV The philanthropists outside 
will curpand croak, if prUoners are inade to 
behiive. Warden Cliambcriain tried to do 
his duty both by llic state and the prisoners, 
but he was hounded out of bis office by u set 
of men who thought or who protended to 
Ihink the prison could be run belter. War- 
den Enrle seems to be finding out that there 
are more difficulties in the way than he ex- 
pected. He deserves, as every other officer 
situated in like manner does, the sympathy 
and support of the public. He should have 
•Abundant authority to make recalcitrant 
prisonera come squarely up to the rensona- 
ble rules and regulations of the estubllsh- 
ment, and if they refuse to submit, he should 
have power to coerce them. Perhaps the 
prime necessity of our prison system is a 
classification which will put desperate char> 
actera by themselves where they can be prop- 
erly dealt with. We have gone a great 
way in the past few years in multiplying in- 
ducements for good behavior on the part of 
prUoners, which is all right. But we can 
never safely let go any means for forcing 
atubborn men to behave, when coaxing and 
kindness have failed. 

tie lo this case defeated the hill. This was la 
accordance with all his voles when on the 
floor of the House, and with all bis profss- 
sions as a citizen on this question. Certain 
in his own mind that the law whs unconstitu- 
tional in the matter of submitting it to the 
peopleTccrtalu also that the local option law, 
iij whose favor ho had written and spoken, Is 
belter temperance legislation than the pro- 
hibitory law ^ould be, be did not crucify his 
eouscience or bis consistency, and vote for 
the bill to secure "any gift in the power" of 
the pftohibitionists to give him. And this, in 
Mrs. Livermore's opinion, "covers him with 
Infamy." We *ubmlt that wheft 0|)en and 
ostentatious hypocrisy is thus preached, by 
MUch a woman as Mrs. LIvermore, on a Sun- 
day evening, in a Christian church, as a 
virtue to b«> practised by a public man, we 
may well despair of honest politics. Mr. 
Sqiyci has been among the ablest and most 
outspoken champions of the woman suffrage 
cause in the legislature for six yeagi. He 
couid hardly be blamed if such principles as 
Mr(»^Livermore advances should stagger his 
fiiilh In the expediency of extending the area 
of bitter intolerance and unjust condemna- 
tion to wlilch political consistency subjects 
our public servants. We confess it staggers 
ours. -.^ 


Congressmen who withdraw from the 
gubernatorial canvass, because they can do 
more good in Congress, probsbly have the 
additional rea»o» that they are more certain 
of getting tho ofllcc. Custom allows the as- 
signing of the other reason, liowever, and the 
world winks with one eye and wag^ along as 


The attempt is made to show that Dr. 
Newman Smyth was not rejected by the

views, but because of his incompetency. But 
this will not be generally accepted.

The Boston Herald, which has pursued 
Mr. Blaine with a malignity that is simply 
devilish, styles Mr. Belmont, aaer his insult 
to Mr. lilaine, as "in every rcs|)ect a perfect 
gentleman." This Is a new definition for a 
cross-examiner who distorts the testimony of 
a witnct^s and then grossly insults him.— 
[Nashua Telegraph. 

There is a provision of law that men who 
were in the confederate service shall hsve no 
place in the army or navy of the United 
States. Why should not that provision be al ■ 
lowed to remain? The sons of Jeff Davis and 
ft. E. Lee may be at West Point and in the 
army, but Jeff Davis himself Is barred from 
a position in that service which he betrayed. 
It is too much for Wade Hampton to ask, 
when he suggests that the country should be 
willing to acknowledge that "God onlv 
knows who was right."— [Fitchburg Senti-

Inquiries were instituted, and it was discov-

whole Kremlin during the festivities attend- 
ing the coronation of the Czar. At the man's 
residence there were found a number of peas- 
ants* caps, the crowns of which were filled 
with explosive material. It is supposed 
that these caps were intended to: be thrown 
into the air in greeting to the Cz ir, and that 
on falling to the ground, their contents 
would have the effect of bombs. Bogdan-

pay you to examine our elegant stock 
which we have had manufactured dur- 
ing the past winter expressly for cus-

some dealers have tried to create 
*'that we only carry the finest and 
most expensive goods," we will say 
that our stock of medium and low 
priced goods is by far tbe most ex- 
tensive and varied of any stock in 
the city, and has been selected with 
especial reference to the wants of 
those who are looking for the newest 
style of first-class goods at low 
prices In Parlor, Chamber, Library

In tbe House, Saturday, tbe 'Speaker laid 
before tlio House a communication from tbe 
secretary of tbe treasury relative to tbe reor- 
ganisation of tbe Second Nalional bank of 

Ciqcinnati, 0. "fbe communication consists 
of a letter from tho comptroller of tbe eur> 
reucy to Mr. W. S. Bowe. oasbier of the 
bank, uudcr date of April 18. The letter 
savs : 

"Under the recent decision of tbe attorney 
general there is nothing In the present law to 
prevent stuckbo\6vai «(<'''^t*flH>' 
a«sociutions, tbe tWmoift 'Itb 
or which have gone Into voTunfary 
tlou under sections 0220 and 5221 of the re- 
vised statutes of tbe United Stut^, from or- 
ganizing other banUjng auoolations of tbo 
same name. * «~*^* To #void difficulties 
which might ensue were you^to wait until 
tbe expiration of your frnncliise at the close 
of tbe business on Mav 25 (tbe date upon 
which tbo charter of tbe bank expires), tbe 
present association should bo put Into volun- 
tary liquidation by (be vote of tbe stoclkbold- 
ers owning two-tuirds of t^e stock uudertbe 
sections above mentioned. Your stockliold- 
ers should proceed to organise tbo uow bank 
In precisely the same way its If there hud 
been no Second National bank of Cincinnati 
in existence, paying in 50 per cent, of U» 
cspltal, etc., as required by tbu National 
Banking law. Any uf the stockholders, not 
less ibun five persons, can cuter into urlicles 
of aMHociuliou for u bunk with a cupKul of 
1200,000. When tbe old bunk is lu liquida- 
tion its depositors can bo rcoueitod to wilb- 
(Iraw their accounts from ft by check, and 
reopen them with the new bank. Those not 
willing to do so must be paid. Tbe assets 
can then, with consent of tbe stockholders, 
bo truntiferred from tbe board of directors of 
the old bank to tbat of tbe new.'' 

Tbe communication also contains a letter 
from tbe Comptroller of the Currency to tbe 
Speaker of tbe IIuuko, iu wtiieh the follow- 
ing language is used : 

"It will be »een tbat tbe organization of 
tbe new bank in tbe city of Ciucinnuti was 
easily arranged, for tbe reason tbat the inter- 
ests Of all tbe sbarebolders of tbe old bunk 
were considered lu tbe orgAiization of tbe 
new. ComplicHtions will, however, be like- 
ly to aristi in tbe organizution of new associa- 
tions designed to succeed those whose corpo- 
rate existence Ih to expire unless some act is 
passed by tbe present CongrcHS authorizing 
tbo continuance of these nutional bunks, 
whose corporate exlNteuce will cease prior to 
Feb. 25, 1888. The number of nationul 
banks whose corporate existence bas ex- 
pired or will expire during tbe present 
mouth is 11; in tbe month of June, 16; and 
In tbe month of July, 24." 

The communication was referred to tbe 
committed on Banking and Currency.

Tbe fbneral of Ralph Waldo Emerson oo- 
eorred Sunday afternoon in Condord. Near- 
ly every building in town t>ore over the en- 
trance aooi;i^ large black and while rosette 
witb other sombre draperies. The public 
buildings were heavily draped, and even 
homes of tbe very poor bore outward marks 
of grief at the loss of their friend and fel- 
low townsman. Tbe services at tbo house, 
which were strictly privute, occurred at half- 
nastjLvwc, and were conducted by Ilev. W. H. 
^ Jof Philadelphia. They were very 
ifcr- I — §lk character, and only Mr. Furness 
' mJlcffkn In them. Tbe aged mother of the 
" poet, his wife, aud bis daughter Ellen sat 
near tbe coffin. After the private services a 
procession was formed for public services at 
the Unitarian church, whicb is but a sliort 
distance from tbe bouse. The Concord Social 
Circle led tbe way; then followed tbe hearse 
and tho pall-bearers, all relatives of the 
deceased, and following them a few carriages 
witb tbe family and intimate friends. 

At the church many hundreds were await- 
ing tbe arrival of tbe procesHion, and all tbe 
space except the reserved pows was pa<:kod. 
In front of tbe pulpit were simple dei'ora- 
tlons, iMUgbs of pine covered the desk, and 
fn their centro was a hurp of vellow Jonquils, 
tho gilt of Miss Louise M. Alcott. Among 
other floral tributes was an open volume, 
upon one pnge of which, on a white ground, 
was the word "flul»" In blue flowers, this 
was from tho teachers and scholars in the 
EmerHon school. By tbe sides of tbe nulpit 
were white and scarlet geraniums and pine 
boughs, and high on tlie wall u laurel wreath. 
Before 8.30 the pall-bearers brought in the 
plain blucl< walnut coffin, which was placed 
before the pulpll; tbe lid was turned buck, 
and upon it was put a cluster of richly 
colored punsies and a small bouquet of roses. 
While tbe coffin was being brought in 
"Pleyel's Hymn" was rendered on the organ, 
by request of the family of tbo deceased. Dr. 
James Freeman Clarke occupied the pulpit. 
Judge i;;. Rockwood Hoar remained by tbe 
ooffln below, aud when tbe congre- 
gation became quiet made a brief 
and pathetic address, bis voice many 
times trembling with emotion. Mr. Hoar 
began bin tribute with the words, "The beau- 
ty of Inruel is fallen lu its high place.'" He 
then spoke of the world-wide sorrow felt at 
the poet's death and of tho special venera- 
llou and grief of tho towmjpeopie wboconsld- 
ered him their own. He read a selection 
from Parnasus, beginning: "Ho is gone—Is 
dust, ho tho more fortunate, yea, be bath fln- 
lshed." Then turning to the open coffin 
said : "That lofty brow, the home of all wUe 
thoughts and lolly afiplralions, those lips of 
eloquent raunic, that great soul which trust- 
ed In Qod and never let go Its Immortality, 
tbat great heart to which evervtbing was 
welcome that belonged to man, that hospita- 
ble nature, loving aud tender and generous, 
having no repulsion nor scorn for anything 
but raeannoHs and baneness. Ob, friend,

Infernal Machines Sent to Prominent 
New York Men. 

Two Infernol machines were discovered in 
tbe United States mail-bugs In New York, 
Sunday, addressed to Cyrus W. Field nnd 
W. H. Vanderbilt. One exploded in the bag 
on tho elevated road with a loud report, dis- 
coloring tho mull mutter and scorching the 
leather pouch. They were held in paste- 
board boxes, and were made of canister 
powder, witb electric attachments. Tho 

i>ost offlce officials are making a vigorous ef- 
brt to trace the packages to tho parties who 
sent them. Early Sunday morning John I. 
Davenport visited police headquarters, carry- 
ing with bin a packago which conUined an 
infernal machine siniliar to those sent to 
Messrs. Taaderbllt and Field and evidently 
prepared by tbe sumo person. It bad been 
pia«Bd in his hallway Saturday night, and 
exploiled at 10 o'clock, setting flre to tbe 
door-mat, but doing no other damage. Tbe 
intention was evidently to set flre to tbe 
house. Tbe machine was a clgar-l>ox bound 
with wire, and contained cotton, which was 
set on flre by tbe explosion, the powder be- 
ing Ignited by a fuse. There wss but enough 
C!waer to shatter tbe l>ox and ignito tbe oot- 
B. Mr. Darenpofi heani the explosion, 
and, tnvestlgailag, found bis door-mat in a 
blaae. Thel>ox was probably Intended for 
Superintendent Walling, tbe letter •^W" be- 
ing written on it, be living a few doers dis-

To toach that Instrament with art and wiU. 
With htm winged poesy doth droop and die, 
Wtille our dallafte. left voiceless, must lament 
The bard high heaven had for iu serviee sent.

Mo i^limeteriac In ike CMalmers Oaao. 

Wa«hinoton, April 29.— Tbe democrats, 
or. at least 46 of them, held a oaucua last 
night, which ^fl|ted for two hours. It was 
chiefly notable A>r tbe absence of sucbproml- 
nent democrats as Carlisle, Cox, Springer 
and Bandall Gibson. Mr. AtTierlon of Ohio 
presided, and Houttf^of Tennessee and Ban- 
dall carried out their agreement that there 
should be no flllbusterlng against taking a 
voto in the Chalmers case. Mr. Chalmers's 
hopes have been mlHulaued. 

Tho principal speukera were House and 
Randall. They bulb urged that tbo small 
faction wbich fiad threatened to prevent or 
to delay a vote should abandon their plan. 
Tho argument was that it was probuble tbat 
Chalmers in no event woidd bo likely to re- 
tain his seat, and thai to attempt to resort to 
dilatory tactics, as had beeu proposed, could 
only result iu injury to the party. 

The policy of tbe party on tbe National 
Bank question was among the matters dis- 
cussed at the caucus, but in the absence of 
those who ure principally luterested in this 
question no actign was takpn lipon It.

This time we call attention to oar 
elegant assortment of clothing for 
young men and boys, a part of our 
business whicb we have tbe least 
need to advertise, as clothing men 
and also tbe public acknowledge our 
supremacy in tbfs branch of trade. 
The styles which we produce are de- 
signed for the best trade in Boston, 
whicb we have supplied for many 
years. The same styles we offer in 
Lowell at 20 per cent, less in price. 
This we explain from the fact tbat 
w6 are under a much smaller expense 
here than stores on Washington 
street, Boston. In fact, our expenses 
are one-half less than any store in 
Lowell which does nearly as much 
business as we do, and we can af- 
ford to sell our goods at a less price.

mare? It was a perfect revelation. When 
be returned, and secured the medicine and 
prescription, he went to another chemist. 
gnd proeuied the needed rei*t<>rutive, auu

How NuTMKOS Ouow.— Nutmegs grow 
on little trees and are generally not over 20 
feet bigb. The flowers are very much like 
' the lily of the valley. They arc pale and very 
fragrant. The nutmeg Is the seed of the 
fruit, and raace is the thin covering over the 
seed. The fruit Is about as large as a peach. 
When ripe, It breaks open and shows a llltle 
nut Inside. The tree grows on the Island-* of 
Asia and tropical America. They bear fruit 
for 70 or 80 vears, baving ripe fruit upon 
them at Hll'seiuions. A line tree In Jamaica 
has over 4000 nutmegs on it every year. The 
Dutch used to have all this nutmeg trade, as 
tbey owned the Bamla Islands, and con- 
quered ail the other traders and destroyed 
tlie trees. To keep the price up they onoe 
burned throe piles of nutmegs, each of wblcb 
, plies was as big as a church. Nature did not 
sympathize with ftuch meanness. The nut> 

{>igeon, found In all the Indian Island*, did 
6r the World whst the Dulcli had deter- 
mined Khotild not be done — carried those 
nut*, which arc their food. Into surrounding 
oountrles, and trees grew again, and the 
world bad the benetlt.

gard to my case, wiio, alter trea.lug ine onsuo- 
ot'SKluUy for a long time, pr.>uouncrd it Inonridlle, 
it being hereditary. 1 finally grew rapidly worse 
until my head, face and ears were In a terrible 
co.iditlon, my ears having become a running 
sore. To make mutters worse my age was also 
aiHlnst me, thus rendering my case still more 
hopele<<s. I was nearly In a aUte of despair 
when by a kind Providence I met Mrs. Prescott. 
Hhe fluhi she could cure me and I commenced 
taking her i^edicine, strictly following her direo- 
tlons, and In a few short months, t.> my great Joy, 
found myseli entirely cured ot this loathsome 
humor, f his was uliie years ago and It has not 
returned. I most cheerfully recommend her 
great skill and medicine to all sufferers. I am

The Methodist Chwreises, 

The Metbo<llst Episcopal churches have 
four quarterlv conferences each year, tbe 
flrst being in Xpril. At this first conference, 
tbriMStor's salarv hi fixed for the year, and 
Otberbusiness for tbe year Is transacted. At 
Uielast conference In the year an expression 
Of opinion is bad as to whether the pastor 
should be relumed foL the second or third 

J rear, as ihe case may dc, and tbe New Bng- 
aad conference seldom acta against the 
wishes ot a church iu this matter. The pas- 
tor of any church was formerly obliged to be 
changed after the second year, but of late 
▼ears three years are allowed In a plate if the 
people are earnest ani united in tbe pastor's 
hvor. Thbj time will probably not be in- 
creased, as there Is now evidence of some re- 
action against tbe possible three years of 
service. It ia argued that the aveiage minis- 
ter of any deuoiBlnntion sekiora socuris. the 
hearty and united co-o|)eratlon of bis church 
longer than three yearn, and that no clergy- 
man should remain In a place after bit* power 
for good has been in any way dirainli«hed. 

At the lust conference in the third year an 
expression of tbe church is bud at> to its 
choice for a new pastor, and a committee is 
appointed to carry out its wishes, as far as 
n^lble. This comiultlee generally visits 
theclergymsii or cici gyracn most favored and 
obtains an expresnion of opinion as to wheth- 
er he or they arc wijling to come to the city 
of towns where they are wanted. The deci- 
sion of the mailer l>elongs wilb tho presid- 
ing elder of tbe district, and in tbe last resort 
wHb tbe bishop. In cases in which there 
an several churches wbo desire a particular 
pastor, and tbe elders cannot agree, tbe bisli- 
ODBiake^ the selection. Three conditions

Tbe opinion of ibe retiring psstor af tbs

Tbe pastor preaohed in the mominf on 
*'Tba life that now is and that whieb U to 
eooM » th>m 1 Tim. iv. 8. In tha past men 
made tbft other life everything and this noth- 
ing. This msy be traced In tbe life, tbe srt 
and tbe literatore of past ages. Tbe poeu 
and palters made bell, purgatory, paradise, 
erapmm and cherubim their subjects. In 
tbe Eiixabethsn age all this was ebanged. 
8bakes(>eare treata of earth, of veritable 
meh and women, wltb all their natural pow- 
ers, passions, hopes, fears snd loves, and 
be la greater to help us, more than Dante or 
Milton. St. Paul U>a mod^l safe to follow. 
He believed In tufo lie ^ ki' 1^ ^^»l— 
come. This life ts M>t to be disparaged r 
the expenaeof the life to come. Too much 
of thU worldllneiia la bad. We shall please 
Ood beat by loving and makti.g Ihe most of 
this life, and thus best prepare ourselves for 
tha Ufa to come. 


The pastor took tbe golden text of tbe day 
for tbe aubject of bis sermon, Mark vil. 7 : 
**In vain do tbey worship Me, toacbing for 
doctrines tbe eommandroenla of men.'* 
There has ever been a lendeney among men 
to muddy the stream of divine revelation by 
bnman traditions. To drink of tbe pure 
apring Is the more healthful. This tendency 
of tbe world to teach tradition for the doc- 
irioes of CkMl, was seen lathe Ilebrew na- 
tion, rebuked so strongly In the Scribea and 
Pharisees by Jevus Himself. Traditions of 
men for tbe Bible will )ilwsvs go to seed in 
Ptasrlseeism, qr tbe anise and cumin of out- 
ward observaobe. The traditiona of men for 
tbe doctrines of Ood have lifted tbe church 
of Borne from heart aervioe to outward 
forms, many of which make void tbe law of 
God. Tradition of our fathers is tbe strong- 
ent argument for some practices in certain 
Prote»Unt churcbea today. In vain, bow- 
ever, that we teach tradition, for "every 
Slant which my Father bath not planted shall 
B rootod up.'^ 


Bev. Wm. W. Foster, Jr., preached In tbe 
morning from James iil. 6: "The toogue is a 
fire." Tbe theme was tbe power of tbe 
tongue for good or evH. Mr. Foster showed 
that tbe tongue revealed tbe character of tbe 
person. Out of tbe heart men speak, and 
tbe constant conversation is of tuat which 
one most ardently cberlHhes. The merchant 
talks of competition and bargains, the scholar 
of books and qucHtiouK of science, the mother 
of her child, tbe vile man pours out the de- 
pravltv of bis heart, and the Cbristisn talks 
of ClirlNt and Ills love for man. Tbe tongue 
reveals the character and also shows tbe zeal 
which one puts into any subject. Numerous 
Illustrations, both serious and amusing, were 
introduced to explain these propositions. 
The Sabbath school was very profitable, and 
tba pastor announced that tbe general 

f»rayer meeting would occur Tuesday even- 
ng, and the sociable Thursday evening. It 
Is expected that Ihe Bev. Dr. Dorchester, 
tbe newly appointed presiding elder, will be 
present at the sociable and hold tbe quarterly 
conference later the aame evening. 

Bev. N. T. WbiUker preached from Dent, 
xxix. 29: "ThinKR secret belong to God, 
things secret to un and our children forever 
that we may do the things^ftbis law." Aft- 
er showing tlie circumstances which called 
forth these wordx of Moses and their Impor- 
tance to the Israelites when uttered, Mr. 
Whitaker proceeded to show their value to 
(pen of tlie present age. He upolie highly of 
Ibe "general diflfusiou of knowledge, the 
marvellous results of scientilic research, und 
tbe triumph of inventive geniun" which 
characterize this generation, and the possl- 
bllilleM within the reach of man. but allowed 
that finite man must ever be clrcum- 
scrihed in knowledge, and must ever be 
vastly inferior In knowledge to Deity. He 
showed that while God knows all things In 
nature, in providence and in religion, each of 
these vast realms bud secrets unknown to 
man, and grouped important facts illustrat- 
ing ibis truth. Ho showed in what sense 
these secrets belonged to Ood, and bow their 
explanation hereafter must enhance tbe dig- 
nities, the rewards and the Joys of heaven. 
He then showed wbv,as declsr]||] in the text, 
things bad been revealed in the Bible and 
given to man. He proved tbe impossibility 
of learning ciMswbere tbe existence of God 
as a personal being, tbe Father and Govern- 
or of all men, and tbe value of this truth to 
man. He compared the revelation which 
the Bible gave of nature to the confiicting 
theories of human philosophers, and showed 
its great superlorltv and vital lessons. He 
then traced the search of humanity in past 
ages for a Mediator and Savior wbo would 
secure for man redemption and eternal life, 
bow that seurch had failed, and bow tbe Bi- 
ble revealed Christ, met all the wants of fall- 
en IVumanltv and confcrretl eternal life. Mr. 
Whitaker closed his remarks by urging the 
duty of doing the commands of Ood as re- 
vealed in tbe Bible, accepting all its truths 
Willi gratitude, uud by living by ite precepts 
to make them known to others. 


The beauty of the day was the signal for a 
large audience at the morning services. B«v. 
Mr. Street took as his text Acts xx. 21 : 
'^Testifying both to the Jews and also to' the 
Greeks i-e|»entance toward Ood and faith 
toward our I^ord Jesus Christ." This is one 
of tbe forms in which the npostle set forth 
the subHtanc^ of his teaching. Tbe preach- 
ing of the apostio was largely testifying. Bc- 
pentance has been interpreted as a cliange of 
mind, but the apostle came to teach a re- 
pentance which should be deep, radical and 
revolutionsry. A change in outward mor- 
als and an exemplary lilc are not sufficient: 
the change must be in the attitude toward 
Ood. Penitence docs not mean penance, as 
some have supposed, but penance is a trans- 
lation of the word which has come down 
from tbe early ages, aad does not convey the 
true meaning. Faith referred to In tbe text 
is that which looks to Christ directly and 
makea » personal Christ its oenlre and goal. 
The requii«menl8 of this fsitb are made on a 
level with onr capadty. Tbe responsibili- 
ties wbteb will come upon those wbo re- 
idct (hbi fsf th, and tbe adversaries which are 
aver crowding upon the soul, seeking to 
draw it away (h>m Hs faith in God, were 
cleariT and explicUly aet forth. if re- 
pentance and a saving faith, as some would 
biiva ub anphoae, are a mistake, th« neoemhy 
for a Bible, church and sets of worship 
wouM hn hMger exM. but tbe word of God 
•Wdetb sure amljteadfast, showing men that 
In Christ and In Him alone can they hope for

The Indian Territory embraeea an area of 
70.000 t-quare miles, larger than all New Enx- 
laud, yet its population Is no greater tiuni 
that of Lowell. Tbe l>orderiiig states contain 
settlements as old as Lowell, and the inhab- 
itants are just becoming awakened by ineoin- 
Ing railroads, lu Arkansas there is a vigor- 
ous temperance movement which has 
brought about the adoption of a sort uf local 
option law, which. If a maiorlty ao vote, pn- 
vrnlM tlt« exUlence of a salooa within >4hree 
miles of a Kchool-liouse. This law was suii- 
ported by 103 o( Ihe 112 new»papers in the 
state. In fact ibe temperance sentiment in 
Arkansas is l>eller than in MassucbusettH, 
and the Subbatb is more observed. 

Four Indian nstious, Ihe Cherokees, Chick- 
asaws. Creeks and Choetaws, inhabit tbe 
territory, wliite men with few exceptions 
being excluded. Tbe Indians have 300.000 
acres of land under cultivation, and would 
do well If it were not for the unwise policy ol 
Ihe government eomi>elllng them to 
retain their trll)al relations and 
hold land in common. This ^forces 
upon tliem communism In Its worst form

one occasion a Callipllc priest gave up his 
place to Mr. WcsflPiificrward h^lpeil raise 
money to build a rrotestunt church. Tlie 
speaker related how 16 Indian girls were 
transporttid to an esstern school, free of 
charge, bv the railroad magnates Gould and 
Sage. The former he considered to be do- 
ing a great work in o|>euing up the west by 
railroads. He severely criticized the Iwdian 
polii-v of the Kovernment, which be said hiid 
put $600,000,000 Into the pockets of contract- 
ors and made paupers of the Indians, of 
whom there are more on this continent to- 
dnv than ever before. In closins be paid a 
glowing tribute to the misslonuries who la- 
bor in the field and alluded to the fruits of 
money given to home missions.

Smith's Model Kmlt Bioiw. 

To obtsln a first-class article, especially ih 
fruit and confectionery, is a matter of con- 
siderable difficulty, yet thcr.- are dealers in 
all cities of ait^ consequence, whose sole alin 
Is lb keep only what are known as fresh, 
wholesome, and substantial good*, and for 
tbe benefit of those of our readers who arc 
not ahead V aware of the fact, we miglit siiy 
tbat one of the most impulur and reliable es- 
tablishments of this kind In this section of 
the stale. Is that of F. W. Smith, which Is lo- 
cated at 47 Merrimack street. Mr. Smidi 
is both a wholesale and retail ilealer 
in pure confectionery and foreign and 
domestic fruit of all kinds, his goods In 
this direction being noted for their 
first-class qualities, while his prices are as 
moderate and reasonable as those of any sim- 
ilar concern In the state. He takes a pride 
III the good name his establishment holds 
throughout this vicinity, as a place where 
fruit and confectionery can be obtained that 
will give satisfaction in every Instance. Mr. 
Smith transacts a large business, and one 
Ihal Is constantly Increasing, which be has 
built up solely on the go'od merits of the arti- 
cles be furnlshe* to his customers, and as a 
first-class store of its kind we heartily com- 
mend It to the favorable attention of our 
readers.— [Business Houses of Lowell.

under three divisions: tbe dlenlty, tpVvni^ 
ihorlly and security of tbe hiding-plHoc, and 
under the last head several points were dis- 
cussed as havlug a bearing uuon the times 
in which we live. Th6 religious, political, 
commercial and social life of the uutlen 
furnished ample illustrations. Reference 
was made to the tam|}erlng with creeds In 
churches, to tbe failure on the part of states- 
men and political leaders to meet the 
demands of their constituents, saying naught 
of tiic non-fulfilment of their own pledges; 
and to the frequency of defalcations and oth- 
er br< aches of tru«t, which have so sadly 
shocked the community, and In ihtilr results 
prepared us to expect nothing better. The 
points were all well made and sustained. 
Announcements of an entertainment on 
Wednesday evening by Ihe Francis Wayland 
ussociutloii, postponed from last week on ac- 
count of the rain, and a sociable at the par- 
sonage for Tliuisday evening were among 
the appointments for the week. 


^The Andover seminary controversy, grow- 
ing out of the nomination and rejection of 
I>r. Smyth us Ibeolozical nrofessor, was the 
main theme of Kev. Mr. Dickiieirs discourse 
yesti'rday morning. When the pledge each 
professor Is required to take, and the several 
articles of creed upon which the theology of 
the seminary slands, and tbo conditions that 
these articles are never lo be altered, amend- 
e<l or diminished in any way (though by the 
confession of the professors themselves, 
practically they are outgrown), are lakcn 
inio cousideration, the visitors could not con- 
slslenlly do otherwise than rejuct Dr. Smyth. 
If he could not cut himself in every particu- 
lar to the requirements of 1806, he ought to 
stand outside. But the action has awalEeued 
thought. In reality few stand wh'-re Samuel 
AblK>t determined the clergy should stand. 
Let Andover or any other liistilulion anchor 
itself to tbe past, avow never to advuuce, 
and it will not be many years that the world 
will have any use for such slaud-still organi- 
zations. Tlie church and all of its institu- 
tions should be on tbe advance, and year by 
vear the best men in Its Iwrders are recog- 
"niaing the fact, of which the Andover Facul- 
ty Is a bright example, while fossils n^ust 
take the background. ' i 


Rev. J. Malvern of Haverhill preached 
from the words, "The word of the Lord 
was precious In those days." He showed 
what Ihe word of the Lord was, und bow it 
was appreciated In the early ages. No proof 
was needed by an enlightened audience that 
the Bible is the word of tlic Lord. Its pre- 
clousness was proven by Its costliness, thou 
its intrinsic value was exhibited by the ef- 
fect upon those who fully accept it. Educa- 
tion without religion is a sword in the hand 
ofal)al»e. Blot Ihe v^ord of tbe Lord from 
the {tages of history and experience, and 
what is left? Bold, blank Infidelity. It Is 
precious In the days of adversity. No hu 
man words can culm the troubled soul as 
this cun. How precious it is In the days of 
bereavement ! It points to a glorious Immor- 
tality. In dying days how precious is the 
woril of the Lord I Wo nil need its comfort 
now, but we must have it then. Our appre- 
c ation of a tiling is seen bv our devotion to 
it. Do we appreciate I ho Bible as we should? 
If we were deprived of it, wo would sigh for 
It. Review the history of the Bible, and vou 
will see how precious' It has been to all who 
havclielieved It. It lights up our pathway 
heavenward, :ind throws a halo of glory 
around the valley of tbo shadow. 


Rev. N. C. Mallorv preached an eloquent 
discourse from Revelation xxll. 17. Blessed 
Is the gospel to man. Sometimes its ble-^s- 
lugs are offered as the stafl^ of life, some- 
times as the bre id of life, sometimes, as In tbe 
text, it Is oflfered as the water of life. We 
comprehend something of the abundant pro- 
vision of water when we consider on the one 
band an ocean 8000 miles wide without a 
break, and on the other hanil an ocean 5000 
miles wide with nothing to divide its waters. 
Also rivers of several hundred miles In 
length, growing larger, and broader, and 
deeper In their onward course to tlie sea. So 
it Is with the blessings of the gospel. They 
are ever recurring, increasing lu their ful- 
ness, and growing deeper In their power of 
giving happiness. Tet eye hath not seen, 
nor ear heard, nor hath it entered into the 
heart of man to conceive of the things God 
hath prepared for those who love him. Yet 
men speak of religion as though by accept- 
ing It they must circumscribe the course of 
their life, snd then complain tbat all the Joy 
and happiness and comforts in this life are 
sacrificed in l)ecoming a Christian. When 
In reality, man only I>egin8 to live when he 
ac<^epts Christ j then only is his life a source 
of unbounded joy and peace and happiness as 
he reaches out alter the living God. No man 
Is satisfied until he has grasped Christ Jesus 
and made Him his for life and eternity. I am 
come, says our Saviour, tbat ve might have 
life. The close attention of the audience ns 
tbe pastor earnestly portrayed the possibili- 
ties of a life In Christ, gave the strongest evi- 
dence that they were lu sympathy with him 
in Ills appeal to Ihe unconverted "to come 
and drIuK of the water of life freely."

..••Inspltaof the general backwardness 
' of tba season yesterday vrnn sbout as floe a 
Kay Day as we have bad for years. 

....Bev. Herbert W. Latbe, a Worcester 
boJijIiM Just been installsd as psstor of a 
eburob at Northampton. We were about to 
tarn spun upon his name, but we forbear. 

....The reaaon given by the two members 
of tbe board of viMltors who have vetoed 
ifewman Smyth's appointment a^ Andover, 
Is tbat be "lacks scvurauy of statement."' 
We fear ibis is an iTIustration of a similar 
lack on tbe part of the two visitors. 

... .A little girl of seven exhibited much dis- 
qnlet at hearing of a new exploring expe- 
dition. When she was asked why she bhould 
care about it, she said: "If they dhcover 
any countries, that will add to the geoerapby I 
have to study. There are countries enough 
In it now."— [Le Figaro. 

....Bcboroburg, upon returning to bis store 
on Galveston avenue from dinner, found his 
olerk very much excited. The clerk said a 
stranger came in and after asking the price 
of a cravat, which was fl, picked up tbe en- 
tire box, containing a dozen, and went off 
withtbem. "Did be pay you tbe del lar r 
asked Mose. "Yes," replied the clerk. "Veil, 
then ye makes, anyhow, fifty per cent, profit 
on de Investment."— [Galveston New». 

. . . .This Is an amateur. lie knows all about 

Bttslc, snd he tells all he knows to his friends. 

How good of bim ! But It does not take bim 

very long to tell it. He likes the modern 

aebool, and considers Bitch one of ita best 

awn . He docs not like tbe tempo of tbe con- 

doctors. This pains the conductors and the 

musicians. Tbe born-player weeps into his 

instrument. But we like the amateur. We 

bkd sooner go to the funeral of one musical 

amateur than to tbat of ten conductors.—

PittsfleUl wants to become a city. 

James Leavens of Dudley, temporarily In- 
sane, took an overdose of laudanum Sunday. 

The Boston and Albany road discharged 40 
employes from its carpenter Hhops Saiurday. 
It is understood thst the chuko ot this de- 
crease is tbe high price of lumber. 

The baU of Oardaar C. Fuller of WeaUm. 
Baa notoriety was reduced on Monday from 
MO.OOO to flOOO to allow him to leave Charles 
■treet Jail in Boston to go home to die. 

The mrasellers of the South End, Boston, 
surprised themselves and their customers by 
closing at ll.aO Saturday night. Reason: 
expiration of licenses and expecUtion of a 
visit from lhe«omml8»ioners. 

Several of the Sisters of St. Margaret have 
been sent from Boston to nun«etbeKmall-pox 
patients at Bt-thlehem, Pa. Some members 
of this sisterhood were also sent to Memphis 
during the yellow fever epidemic. 

Tbe thoroughbred Shorthorn stock of tlie 
late J. E. Waters estate at West Millbury, 
was sold bv auction last week. There were 
14 snininls'in all, which brought flBS. The 
highest psid was by E. H. Rutter for tbe La 
Belle, 8d, |141. 

John Coffee, a married man of 29, a hostler 
in the American houHo at Ame»«bury, is un- 
der arrest for violently outraging bis sisier- 
In-iaw, aged 17. Ho Induced her to drink 
and committed the crime on a lonely road 
near the Salisbury poor farm. 

Tbe Boston aldermen yesterdsy voted to 

Save Devonshire street, between State and 
Lilk street", with small granite blocks, al 
a cost oT 96100; a first and aecond asMi!4tMnt 
•aseasor were elected, and the order to bor- 
row $1,600,000 for the construction of a new 
system of sewerage was passed without de- 

brte. ■ 

Anothkr Boston Collapibb.— The In- 
yemeaa Oil company of Nova Scotia, which 
is virtually owned In Boston, has been sued 
for the balance due on purchases of leases of 
Oil lands, and Us property, valued at f 100,- 
000, has been allached. Alwut 9250,000 was 
paid in, the capital Ijeing f 1,000,000, and tbo 
Stockholders want to know where the money 
is. W. A. Woods of Boston Is or was presi- 
dent and Jas. S. Longhead is general mana- 
ger. The latter saxs he knows nothing 
about the finances. Oil has been struck, but 
it is valueless, owing lo the great flow of 

water. . 

Congress on Mondajr. 
The bill for the reraovnl of political disabil- 
ities from persons engaged in tbe confederate 
•ervice during the rebellion was furtbcr dis- 
cussed in the Senate, speeches being made 
by Messrs. Call and George. No decisive ac- 
tion was taken. Mr. Saunders of Nebraska 
■poke at length in advocaijy of a constitu- 
tional amendment providing for the election 
by tbe people of certain efllcers now appoint- 
ed by the President. ^ _ ^ , ,^ 

The House, bv a vote of 160 to 06, fixed the 
Ml Instant ns tbe date on which to begin tbe 
oonaldcrntion of Mr. Orapo»s bill 10 enable 
national banks to renew their charters. This 
waa tbe fourth attempt to have a time for Its 
oonsideration fixed, and it succeeded by 10 
rotes more than tbe necessary two-thirds. 
The conoesHion of allowing amendn[ienU se^ 
oured democratic votes. An effort to sus- 
pend tbo rules and consider tbe anti-Chinese 
bill waa defeated bv a vote of 100 to 03. A 
)arn number of bills and raHolutions were 
iBtroduoed and referred to appropriate com-

■hining in some happier clime, suns to illu-

tiful souls God ever sent to earth to enchant 
us with true Orphean and celestial melody, 
one who righily m«y be ranked among the 
"Lights of the world luui demi-gods of fame." 
Never shall we forget our first acquaintance 
in our earnest voiith with Emerson iu his 
works. He haJ been in Britain on his sec- 
ond and more public tour. ChapmAn, the 
{doneer of the tliscount system on the pub- 
Ished price of books, publis^her of Fichte, 
HovallH, and Schelling and Strauss, had in- 
troduced him in a Utile volume of essays, 
with a laudatory Iniroduction by Thomas 
Carlyle, whose surly cynicism melted before 
Emerson, of whom he has, strange to say, 
nothing but loving words and kindly things 
to aay. Chapman's edition our slender purse 
would not suffer us to-l>uy ; but one Slater in 
London brought out a shilling edition, and 
we remember our delight when over that 
twenty-cent, green-covered little 16mo. vol- 
ume we bung entranced. Much we could 
not then corapribend, some things we were 
startled by; but the beauty, the wisdom, the 
original styleof statement distinguishing the 
thoughts in this tiny volume made us then, 
M we are now, aaloa fide, an Emersonian 
for substance of docti-ine, as they swear 
nreeds at Audovcr. "Nature, and other es- 
says," fu'lowefl, then "Representative Men," 
then "English Trnlts," then the "Conduct of 
Life," then "Society and Solitude," then the 
lecture on "Immortality," and finally the 

Emerson is the most distinctively Ameri- 
can literarv genius that has appeared. He 
. never forgets that he la a New Englander, 
the descendant of an ancestral line stretch- 
. ing buck to the landing at Plymouth Rock, 
whose sires fought at Concord bridge, and 
helped to build tlie foundations of this great 
republic. He read the Bible, the Koran, the 
Shatters, llie poems of Haflz, the dialogues 
of Plato, the essays of MouUilgne, the plays 
of Shakespeare, the poems of Gi«>rge Her- 
bert, Goethe's Faust and Wilhelm Meister, 
the papers of John Pnul Riehter, the specula- 
tions of Spiiio/,u, Kant and Schelling, the 
weird dreams of Swt;dei)i)org, the history of 
Napoleon, I lie poetry of Hums and Cowper, 
of Shelli-y and Byron, of Wordsworth ai.d 
Colerhlge, nil with a practical, shrewd, 
though dreamv-looking Yankee eye. His 
reading was immense, but, strange to say, 
though a scholar, lie preferred translations 
In EuKlisb to originals in other tongues; and, 
stranger still, he had llie manliness to declare 
bis preference in this respect to all the 
world, and was able to give an excellent rea- 
son for it, namely, that that portion of a bonk 
that is translatable into anotner tongue is the 
best of it, is tliat which is of universal inter- 
««t, really worth while for man as man, not 
merely as a pedantic word-monger, to read, 
mark, Inwardly digest and know. Emerson 

((Ot the kernel of an author in this way, and 
eft the philological husks and shells and dust 
of mere anliquTty, or of other languages, to 
Uioae who liked such mental provender. 

Emerson's reading never obscured his per- 
sonality, which comes out In every line he 
wrote. Of course bis free handling of relig- 
ious and pliiloHophic opinions cost him mi»- 
understanding, misrepresentation and abuse. 
He was called dreamer, panlbolst, infidel. 
And It roust be owned that in some of bh 
earlier productions be gave cause for his 
more orthodox friends feeling pain. He had 
^^ way of putting the name of Josus and Paul 
and Socrates and Sakya Muni together that 
was like puiting them all on a lerei. He 
■ported a lii^h-fTying subjective Idealism that 
keemed to make bun, moon and star* not 
only bow to him, but simply to be, along with 
bis fellow-men, around him, and the great 
Creative Spirit that produces sud sustains all 
things, mere phantasmal pictures on the disk 
of consciousness within the Innvr man of 
a phenomenal entity calling itself Ralph WaU 
do Emenon, which occusionnlly wrote books 
•nd oocaalouallv appeared in Boston and else- 
where to read, before other like phenomenal 
phantasms figuring in time and space, 
■tranga essays in wliich the phenomenon 
■merson asserted with firmness its own ex- 
fatence and more than binted a doubt of the 
•' existence of those who were listening to him, 
•BVC as pictures In hia own aoul. With such 
B dreamlike phlloeophy there could be neither 

a firm hold of this world nor of the world to 
come. But later In life ihese views be- 
gan lo fade awav. Personal ex'stenoe t»e- 
cam« to lilm a great reality, and ncrsonal Im- 
morlalltv a Hrnuonvietlon, based on rational 
and truly pliilosoplilcul grminds. His de- 
clining years were beautiful, as he awaiteil 
iu calm resignation heaven's call. We think 
we we liiiu now as we saw him at Concord 
In 1875. on the platform where Lowell, Cur- 
tis, Grant and others were silting or speak- 
ing beside him, with a sweet smile illumining 
Ills decidedly New England features, while 
be handled an andeni sword of a revolution- 
ary officer with soinetblng like fondness as 
a child would a toy. He felt this lile real 
then. Of late bis memory bjfgan to fail. Hn) 
became sliv «n<l timid. We have heajd from 
neighbors of DeQulncey bow he ran oflf and 
bid hiinbcll from the too eager curio-ity of 
visitors. Kinerson latu-rly bad a similar re- 
luctance to be trotted out, the shadow of bis 
former self, to be « ntrapped into conver-a- 
lion to show bow mmd) he had lailed. We 
heard ri*om reliable sources of this 
very excusable shviiess before wo reiul in a 
contemporarv^umal the following touch- 
ing words, w'liich were ntlered by the aged 
sago to a friend who called upou bim some 
tluie last year: 

••I am glad to see you, yet I (bar I can do little. 
I can only disappoint tnose who come lo nee me. 
I And 1 am lo-lnx inyselt, and 1 wander away 
from tlie matter that I have in mind i cannot 
say much. Whin I begin I lose in wlf. And so 
when my friends oome to sec ma I run away. In- 
stead ol jzoing >o meet lliein, that I may not 
make them nutler. My health is good enough. 
But when one's wits b. gin to tall, U Is time f«r 
the heavens to open aua take him aWay." 
Now, we trust, the heavens have opened and 
taken lu this pure and noble spirit. His own 
words respecVing the belief in liujuortallty, in 
one of his latest lectures, may be quoted 
here: "Wherever man ripens this audacious 
belief presently appears, m the savage, sav- 
agely; in the good, purely. As »oon as 
Iboiudil isexercisid, ihia belief is inevitable; 
as so5u as virtue glows, this belief conflrras 
Itself. Ilisakin.lof hUinroary or comple- 
tion of man." Into that Immortality Lmer- 
soii's spirit has now entered; may we not 
sav has gone a step higher towards "the com- 
pletion of luanr , , ,» ,.w 
As with Longfellow, perhaps is it with 
Emerson— anv attempt lo estimate bis place 
in the galaxies ol literature may be at pres- 
ent premature. Nevertheless we can not re- 
frain from expressing our own conviction In 
regard lo the rank of his geniu-. To us it 
Meerasasif one of the loftiest minds of the 
nineteenth ceniury had been taken from the 
world, lu all the field of American litera- 
ture ho sits on a peak alone, no one above 
him, no one nigh so high. As Doncfellow 
was the American singer, Enurson was the 
American thinker. The business of his lile 
WHS refleclive thouglit. Ail the shows of na- 
ture on tills western soil, all its teeming life, 
its busy, i-estless, inventive aeiiviiy, its prac- 
tical ethics, its re .1 or pretended faith and re- 
ligion; all the throbbing of the lieart of New 
England ;all the vibi alions in Its restless brain, 
with the sixbts. sounds and cireu instances 
amid which that throbbing heart and vibrat- 
ing brain were placed, formed the raw mate- 
rial which the intellect of this man worked 
up into his brief, brilliant, corrnscaling, win- 
dom-fraught sentences and po«'ms. No oth- 
er country, no other age, could have given 
this mi{n his peculiar disposition, and shaped 
bim into the poet-sage whose orphic sayings 
are so subtly suggestive of thought In others. 
But Emerson was more than an American. 
Wherever the Eaglish language Js 
read, and even In foreign-speaking 
cultured lands bis writings are held 
in high esteem, and will be herealter 
reckoned, for thought and syl , as classi«-al. 
While his writings aie redolent of the piney 
woods, the streams, fields and bills of New 
England, while they reflect, as in a mirror, 
the uivslic musings of a peculiar phase of 
Araerie>.n thoughi, be overleaps the bars of 
local influence and speaks to Ibe great heart 
of universal man. In no country in this 
centurv has anv one said so maliy fine quot- 
able things, utterfd so many subtle sugges- 
tions as 10 nature's occult meanings, or In- 
spired so many liigh and orixinal tiioughts. 
As a poet he will not rank for workmanship 
alongside of Poe", or for pensive pathos with 
Loiiglellow ; but iu bis rugged rhymes he is 
more original, sees larther and goes deeper 
than cither. But it is as a prose-poet that he 
excels, as a sage chanting fn the most fitting 
words to the music of thought the wisest 
strains. Ijet us take his writings in a rapid 
survey. Tlie first is bis twelve essays, a 
feast of fat things. Emerson on History, for 
philosophic insight, leaves Macaulay's ele- 
gant lucubration on the same theme far t>e- 
bind. Self-reliance is a bugle call to mental 
.independence, teaching us to (mat ourselves, 
telling us that "every h'^art vibrates to that 
iron strain." The essay on Compensation 
opens with a profession of antagonism to 
"orthodox" preaching, but is really one of 
the finest homilies in vindication of the 
moral government of the universe which, 
afier reading Leibnitz, King and Butler, we 
have seen, and contains ttie most convincing 
secular proof of retribution, except the 
tragedy of Macbeth, of which it forms the 
best commentary that I am sure can any- 
where l)C found. 

For deep, mystic musing the es- 
says on Spiritual Laws, Love, the 
Oversoul, Circles, lift the reader of 
a congenial spirit into a higher re- 
gion than the dusty air of common life. 
Those on Friendship, Prudence, Heroism, 
Intellect, and Art give proof of how genius 
can give fresh Interest to well-worn themes. 
In the second series of essays appear like ex- 
cellences, allhouKb none rises so high its the 
be-t of the earlier series. The liltle volume 
on Nature is a precious gen\, spaikiing, 
prininatic, poetic, profound, and may be said 
to contain the essence of the Emersonian 
philosophy. In Representative Men Is giv- 
en the meuial portraiture of Plato, Swedeu- 
borg, Montaigne, Shakespeare, Napoleon and 
Goethe. On kindred topics with Carlyle's 
Heroes and Hero-worship, Emerson's 
lectures are not at all like tbose of the fiery 
Scot. Paradoxes al)ound in them. In one 
of them Emerson shocks the moral sense by 
asserting that vicious ways lead lo the 
highest life— a dirct confounding of vice and 
virtue, probably the result Of an ovci'-dose 
of Spinoza which, when the lecturer wrote 
out his thoughts, had not l>een wrought off. 
Napoleon and Goethe are held up to our ad- 
miration for their ability rather than 
moral character. Gossipy Montaigne 
is B s|ecia1 favorite with Emer- 
son, and gets even more than bis due. Swe- 
denborg be estimates far above where Kant 
had placed bim. But Shakespeare la pre- 
sented in distinctiv new lisht as the great 
master of expression ; in the lecture on Plato 
there is B sketch of Socrates which is finished 
with all the spirit and graphic power of an 
antique gem ; and the entire series of lectures 
Is wortby of the student's pains, for Us char- 
acterization, Its insight, Its suggesliveness, 
and deecriptive power. 

The Lectures on the Times give the student 
the philosophy of parties in politics. His 
Oraiions and Addretsee are of a mingled 
yarn; but like all bla wrltinirs, even the 
plainest, well worth reading. English Traits 
is gossipy yet practical and philosophic, 
with some fine descriptions of men and 
scenes in Old England, In which be saw 
many tbinga to praise aa well as to blame. 
The Conduct Of Life, althongh like all Emer- 
son's books, startllngly paradoxical, verging 
even on contradiction, la a philoaopby of hu- 
man life on earth, packed with quoUble sen- 
tences, brimful of wiae thought* well ex- 

preaaetl. Our well-marked oopy benn tat»r> 
nal evidenoe of our appreclatloa of ft twottty 
yean ago. One roazim in It li worthy of gfl 
prall«^, telling us that we must "B«Uuat oar 
efforts to our obstaclea." Soeiety bimI Soil- 
lude we refi-ain to characterise, fur Blthottgh 
we read it long ago yet aa some anon- 
ymous ' admirer appropriated our oopy 
years ago, we cannot find a hook to link on 
a recollection to, leaving an ''aching void** 
that memory cannot fill. Letters and Social 
Aims wo speedily devoured, but think It, 
save the lecture on Immortality, to be of a 
poorer quality than some oi hIa beat work. 
The wealth of quotation in It ahowa the ex- 
tent of his reading, but Intimates a lack of liv- 
ing, co-ordinating and B'«simllailng thought. 
The poems remind one of Shelley's SeosiUfe 
PItuit and H)iun to Intellectual Beauty with 
their whispered undertones of doeper mean- 

In the hymn f^uiig at Concord, April 19, 
1886, oecurs some fine phrasing, auch aa: 
"the rude l>ri<ltfe that arched the flood," and 
"the shot beard round the world." There la 
a freshness as of forests, of mountain tops, 
and ocean llde-waah«d strands In Kmeraon'a 
rather uneuphonic lines. A seer, he peso- 
trates with (rue insight through the ma^ka 
of things. Ho seea beliind forms the In-form- 
ing life Ihul lies In everything. To lilm aolid 
matter is fluent, trauM|>arent, phenomenal. 
Miud, in bis view, is real, sulistantlal. per- 
manent, the maker and sustaiuer of all that 
exists, giving llfeand breath and beauty to 
alltliiims. Unly virlue Is in harmony with 
the loving spirit embiMlied iu nature. Love 
is in everything, living, eniluring, perma- 
nent, immortal. Each of Emerson'a poems 
is a mirrored mood of Emerson'a aoul. 
Whether it bo foiesl glade or 
crowded strott or tide-washed ahore; 
whether it l>e aong of bird or liee or 
patriotic crowd; whetlier it l>e flowing river 
or golden field. Mnnadnock's tops or Adiron-

the advance of inventive Industry, and the 
marvellous progress in physical science. h:«ve 
crowded already, or threaten to crowd, the 
mystic and n-fit'ctive out of human life. Tet 
is man a cliild of Ibe luvisible aud the Infi- 
nite; and wlien the intoxication of mere 
knowledge and materialistic opinion shall 
have pasMd away, and the aoul sliall have so- 
bered down axai'n into s<>riou9 thought, then 
will men begin lo appreciate, at their proper 
vulue,the tjeautifully expressed aspirationa of , 
the placid sage of Concord. Might WO dare to 
imagine the Walhallaof the heroes of thought, 
we should picture Emerson as finding there 
a noble welcome. The broud-b rowed Plato 
would rlw to bow bim in; Spinosa, free 
from fear of waul abd tbe synagogue, would 
<iuile to see his American admirer: good 
bishop Berkeley silling in a group with that 
"noticeable man with grey eye»" — Colo- 
ridge, and dreamy DeQninecy would invite 
him to sit bv iheiii ; while in their turn other 
groups would bid him bail— Montaigne, Pas- 
cal, Cousin ; or i^ibiiitz, Kant and llegel ; or 
Shakespeare aud Ba«M>n and Raleigh; or 
Cowper, Shellfv and Wordsworth; or Burns, 
Scott. Wilson and Carlyle; loved them 
all while be lived below, and they, be sure, 
would welcome as a kindred spirit, a brother 
well beloved, when translated to tbe skies, 
the noble entity whose clear name on earth 
was Ralph Waldo Emerson.

There was a show case full of tbom, each 
pair mounted in a velvet box. The j)'«ttern 
was the same in sll us far as the bund was con- 
oerned. The bund was a lull inch wide, 
aiade of fine clastic and covered with bcauti 
fully woven silk of every comwlvable shade, 
pale blues and warm reds predominating. 
They are ^oatlned lo matc^i the lint of the 
dress worn with them. In one case two 
heart-shaped clasps of colored gold, Inluld 
with cross-bars of turquoises aud pearls, 
Joined the ends of ii scurlcl bund with liUie 
frIllB of silk along the edgo«. The price was 
SIOO. A pair with two oval clusps of ham- 
mered gold, porhrtps an Inth iu length, could 
be bought for •48, while ilio cheapest pair 
with pisin gold clasps*, wiis f46. 

"It's a curious IhcI," ►aid the jeweller, 
"that the cheap ones won't sell. When a cus- 
tomer WHhtH an elegant ^farter, he— I mejin 
■he— Is Willing lo pay for It." 

A pair that cost f 223 had two shields with 
three big pearls iu each and little diamonds 
at Ihe edge. Ai»oti)er pair was expensive 
through Its delicate luce, wldch was airangod 
InaflulTy bow-knot, with two . little gold 
disks clasping In the centre. 

At another eatublishment tbe jeweller 

■aid: , , , 

"The majority of them are made to order. 
Tour vIMt la opportune, as I have just fin- 
ished the most t-xpensive pair thHl ever left 
my factory. The price U f 1200." In this 
the lace and pearl-colored silk band was 
joined by an elaborate clasp. On one side 
was the lad v'fl monogram in poaris: on the 
other tbe coat-of-arni*, with Irosteil storks' 
heads, a crest of delicately carved gold, and 
a motto set In chip diamonds. It was a pres- 
ent from a mother to her daughter, who is 
to be married soon.

I And a tin quart cup, with bands marking 
each half pint, the most convenient vessel in 
which to prepare a small amount of choco- 
late. In this the quantity can be accurately 
measured, aud the depth of tbe cup keeps the 
eontents from boiling over. For one cupful 
of chocolate take half an ounce of Baker's 
chocolate and five lumpe of cracked loaf sug- 
sr; dissolve iheni in two-thirds of a cupful 
hot water, Hn«l boil rather slowly until one- 
third of the quantity is loft; then add half a 
pint of rich milk, and simmer slowly until a 
single cupful remains. The liking for choco- 
late Is In many cases an educated taste, and 
often one who Wuuldlurn with loathing from 
It thus prep.ired would partake with delight 
if only naif the quantity ol the chocolate was 
VHod. In either case it proves a healthful 
drink, especially fur dyspeptlca.

We are rapidly cutting down the national

reduction during the month of $14,416,-

The salmon carcass found In the canal a 
week ago Sunday Is one of the many indica- 
tions that the Merrimack Is slowly being re- 
8tock<^d with the fish that were once so plenti- 
ful here that apprentices demanded a re- 
strictive clause In their iudeiitures against 
being compelled to eat them too often. And 
yet we haven't given the salmon much more 
tban lialf a chance. Our fishways are im- 
perfect, and our efforts at restocking have 
been spasmodic and haif-hearted. There is a 
ebauce to make the river once more a gpod 
deal of a salmon streams if the matter is 
properly taken hold of. . T 


> It is not likely that "the limits of the Sev- 
enth district will be materially changed by 
the new arrangement to be reported by the 
redislricting committee. Speaking from a 
political standpoint, the expediency of sep- 
arating Lawrence and Lowell Is the first 
thing which suggests itself. The average 
population of the new districts will be iu the 
oelghborhood of 149,000, and Lawrence and 
Lowell will, therefore, conUin nearly two- 
thirds of the peopM In the district. The 
tendency in both these cities is toward demo- 
cratic miyorities, and ten years from now the 
district will be very close, if party linei re- 
main aanow. 

Lawrence has Just bad an alleged case of 
*«cruel punishment" of a child In school, 
which, on Investigation, turns out, as most 
tuoh cases do, to be a very small matter. In 
which the parents foolishly endorse Insubor- 
dination in their children, and maliciously 
exaggerate their well-merited punishment. 
In this case superintendent Brewster said he 
should have done us the teacher did under 
the same circumstances, and that It was the 
lightest case of punishment he ever beard re- 
ported to the school board in 20 years' ser- 
vice. And yet the local papers were full of 
it, snd the Boston sensation-mongers dis- 
played it under large head-lines. 

I<C|{lalatlTe Bnalneaa. 

The Herald proposes the "committee of 
the whole" as the best means of shortening 
our legislative sessions. This would amount 
to little, however, which might not be just as 
randiiy accomplished under the present rules. 
The committee of the whole is so little differ- 
ent from the regular method of proceeding 
In our Massachusetts legislature, that It 
would only take rather more time than less, 
to go through with the shining. All that is 
needed i* to put the questions which the Her- 
ald woold have considered in committee of 
the whole, at once before the House, and let 
them he considered at lenfftb, if members ao 
dealre, in the early daye of the session when 
there is nothing else to do. Such queationa 
as woman suffrage, biennial elections and the 
prohibitory law, could just as well be report- 
ed the second week as the second or tblrtl 
■nonth. The forms to be followed are all 
flxed, and the arguments to be used are all 
known. Hearings are not needed, and what 
preparation members need to make for dis- 
eussion could better be made early In the ses- 
alon than later. 

But this is only a small matter toward do- 
ing Hm session's work. There are tcores of 
little matters, which must go to committees 
bot which need not be left hanging all win- 
tor. They require but slight inveslignlion, 
•ad might be aa well reported in January or 
February as to wait until March. It is only 
the habit of procrastination and dilatorincss, 

Why^ Ite Didn't Vote for the Pr«hlbltory 

Among the clergymen who are jnembers 
of the House of Representatives this year, is 
the Rev. Oliver A. Roberts, a Unitarian, of 
Salisbury. On the prohibitory bill be voted 
"nay," and being taken to task for so doing, 
and being asked by ote of his constituents 
for the reasons why he considers the present 
law a better temperance statute than the pro- 
hibitory law would be, he replies at length in 
the Amesbury Villager. To begin with he 
shows that he could not vole for the bill 
while it contained the unconstitutional pro- 
vision for submitting it to the people. He 
then quotes some very good prohibitory, au- 
thorities, who admit that the local option 
law is belter machinery for suppressing the 
sale of liquor than straight prohibition is, 
and shows wherein the defects of the law 
consisted. The reply closes as follows : 
. No law can entirely prevent the sale and 
use of Intoxicating liquors. The object of 
legislation should be to diminish to the least 
poMSible extent the evils growing out of their 
sale iinii use. Is not a local prohibition law 
(for that is what we have) favored by public 
sentiraent better than a slate prohibitory law 
only partially enforced even by nuch extraor- 
dinary measures as a state constabulary? 

Tlie present local prohibition law Is a bet- 
ter temperance measure than the state pro- 
hibitory law, because 

(1) People are more inclined to defy and 
resist a slate law restraining the sale of liq- 
uors thiiH when they are forbiddtn by a ma- 
jority of their own fellow citizens, they them- 
selves voting. 

(2) The officers of a no license town or 
city, elected bv a majority of their fellow cit- 
izens, naturally feel more obliKation to en- 
force "no license" than they would a general 
law. Under the state law the official respon- 
sibility is to the state; under local prohibi- 
tion the responsibility Is to their fellow 
townsmen. Under the former law the citi- 
zens make no popular expression of opinion; 
under the latter they do, and the people are 
nt fault If they do not demand fidelity in 
their officers. 

The present law has been In operation but 
a year. No complaints come from temper- 
ance people where it is being fairly tried. A 
life-long temperance man writes to me— "It 
is the best law in my judgment for the pre- 
vention of the sale and use of intoxicating 
liquor ever placed upon the statute book of 
the state." "The cause of temperance is 
more generally and with belter success advo- 
cated In connection with the town and city 
voting •license' or 'no license' than for 
years before." 

It seems to mv mind, therefore, that the 
principle of prohibition is more clearly ex- 

Cressed In the present no license or local pro- 
ibition status than in the so-called prohibit- 
ory law. I think it is simpler in its machin- 
ery and more effective In its method. While 
It seeks to regulate, it also positively prohib- 
its- . .. 
Had I consulted my fenrs. my prejudices 

or policy, I would perhaps have done differ- 
ently. I reviewed the whole casein every 
possible relation and result. I earnestly 
sought to know and to do the right. I gave 
the matter earnest, faitbfbl consideration, 
and at last gave my vote in accordance with 
my official oath and with my duty to God, 
the stiite, my constituency and myself. 

I have carefully re-examined both laws 
and reviewed the entire case, but have found 
no good reason to change my vote or the 
opinions herein expressed.

pay you to examine our elegant stock 
which we have had manufactured dur- 
ing the past winter expressly for cus- 
tom trade, and is superior in every 
respect to any stock ever shown here,

Washinqton, D. C, May 1.— Senstor 
Blair was In attendance at the rdoms of tbe 
committee on foreign aflTuIrs promptly nt 10 
o'clock tblH morning, but the committee was, 

as usual, Nomewhat late. Chairman Will- 
lams called the committee to order at 10.15 
o'clock, add formullv announced the sub- 
coiumitlee to viHit New York, aPer which 
Seiiutor Blair was sworn, and Chairman 
WiliiHras began a series of questions, 
to which Senator Blair replied that be de- 
sired, before answering any direct questions, 
to Hu bill it as a part of tbe record correspoud- 
encu with the committee touching bis appear- 
ance before it. Tbe letters were then read, 
and were ordered to be made a part of the 
record, ua was also the resolution of the Sen- 
ate granting permission to appear before tbe 
committee. Sehator Blair then said: "I 
have ill a Homewbat4iurriedmMnner prepared 
a general Htatcinent In relation to tbe subject 
under inv^alixation, which I will read." 

Tbe stalemout contalne<l very little with

IIu Nui«| be acted as attorney for the Peruvian 
compiiiiv, and accepted a block of stock as u 
retainer, which be subsequently returned. 
He preferred to have money, but it happened 
that be took stpck. As to tbe mn In question, 
bo wa8 an American and Itelieved In an 
Amerii-an policy snch as Mr. Blaine adopted: 
Ho would have favored such a policy wheth- 
er there had ever been a Peruvian company 
or not. He believed that the Peruvian com- 
pany bad a subHtantial foundation, and de- 
clared that the East India company at Its 
origin did not have a bettor case. He 
thought ir the Blaine policy bad been contin- 
ued It would have diverted South American 
trade into American channels. No member 
of the cuniinittee asked a (question, and tbe 
meelinK was adjourned subiect to the call of 
the clmirman. Mr. Blair will be cross*ex- 
amioed at the next session.

[From the B, cheater Demoorkt-I 
James Morton Is a Pliilailelphia roathema- 
tician who claims to have solved the problem 
known as "squiirlng the circle." The solu- 
tion of this problem of finding the exact area 
of a circle bus occupied the attention of 
malheniiititlans from time Iminemwlal. 
Many claimed to have performed it, but their 
demonstrations have always tailed to stand" 
the test The eaiHe-'t names connected with 
the subject are those of Aiiftxagoras and 
ArchlmcdeH. and since their time multitudes 
have engaged In the fruitless quest. Probii- 
blv ai much time Ins been spent on the quad- 
rature of the circle as on all useful and prac- 
tical mftthematics. The nature of the prob- 
lem places It outside the domam of the arith- 
metical calculation, but notwithstanding this 
admitted fact, the ratio between diameter 
and circumference h^s been carried out to 
over six hundred decimal places. Mechani- 
cal soluiioiH have been numerous, but none 
of them can claim even an approximation to 
the accuracy obtained by arithmetical meth- 
ods. Geoinetrv, however, may be adequate 
to solve the problem, and it Is this possibility 
which leads to the continued efforts of num- 
erous mathematician-. The duplication of 
the cube wa- for centuries eon-idered impos- 
sible, but higher geometry at last accom- 
pllshed the task by means of a peculiar 
curve, kno .vn as the Cuswdd of Diocies. 8o. 
by geometrical methods, Mr. Morton thinks 
he has aeeompll'^hed the quadrature of the 
circle. HI* rocenlly publUhed book conUlns 
the results of hit* Invenilgations on the mat- 
ter, apd much other Information on relative 
topics. His solution, put In the form of a 
proi>osition, is as lollows : '^The square of 
the diHineter of any ciicle is to its area as the 
perimeter of a square «le«crlhed on the diam- 
eter of the circle Is to Itn circumference; or 
conversely, the area of any circle Is to the 
aqusre of lis diinueter us ihecircuniference of 
the circle is to the p*'riineler of a square de- 
acrlliedon Its dian>eter." The ver(Jict of 
mathematicians uk to the va'Idlty of Mr. Mor- 
ton's deinou"«f ration of this proposition will 
be awaited wilh considerable interest by all 
who have bestowed auy attention on the old 

Ifetra la the AdwertUIn* Columns.

Anmwal Moatlns of the Choral SoeletT^. 

The annual meeting of ibe Choral socielv 
WM held last night, and although the attend- 
MMO was not large there was a marked In- 
ttrest In the proceedingn that suggested the 
•trong vitality of the rejuvenated ofgaulxa- 
tion. President Benl. Walker called the 
neelingto order, and after the reading of 
the annual report bv the secretary, Mr. A. L. 
Badheiler, read a paper giving his own views 
VDon the conditlou of tlie society, iU oppor- 
tunities, nod Its needs. He congratulated 
the society upon Its successful rehesMtals 
during the past season and iU bright outlook 
for the future. He reviewed Its origin aud 
history up to the present time, apeak ng 
■leanwhile a complimentary word of the big 

Saoe Jubilee and Piitrfcic SarsUeld Qllraore, 
prime mover. Mr. Walker deplored the 
prevalence of discord and jealousy among 
BUslclans as too onen the cause of want of 

firoKre»s in inuHlc:d affairs. Lowell, he said, 
pre-cmlnenlly u mu-Hical city, rich ip vocal 
and InslrumCTital taleut, and needs Just 
•ueh an organ' eatloo aa the Chora 
■ooletyto gather iogether all the musical 
people of the oity in one bo<iy, from which 
-all minor organizations might be offshoots. 
But It has been iuniosflble to realize this 
ideal society on H««ount of the iealousy re- 
ferred to, which Mr. Walker »>ped miKhl 
soon pass away. He then alluded to the ad- 
vantages which Ibe soclely offers, and to the 
magnellMnof Mr. Zerrahu as a conductor, 
and expressed his owu |»reference lor a high- 
er class of music to be htudied by the socie- 
ty. Discussing the i»iist season, he said IB

tendancc of IftO out of a total meinberah p 
of «». The ladles hud been more faithful In 
attendance than tlie gentlemen; but the ir- 
reguhirity is lo be regretted as it prevented 
the society from being invited to Join in a 
eharlti.ble concert recently given In Boston, 
to say nothing oil lie great musical festival in 
New York. Mr. Wufkor's paper was loudly

•The Biatorr or Snaall-Pox in Liowell. 
At various times during tho winter 
months reports have been received that 
aroall-pox was pi-evalling in »evel«r>Uies 
and towns throughout New England, hod 
only a few weeks ago we learned that it had 
reached the neighboring city of I-awrence. 
On this account the b<jard of health In this 
city Issued an order eaulioning "all persons, 
and especially physicians, to walch airefully, 
forany indications of this disease," In order 
that lis earliest npi>eBrunce might he dlsoov- 
ored and its further progress be checked. It 
may not be lnapi>ropri«lc, therefore, itt this 
time, to review the past history of smnll-pox 
in this city, an»l note some of fne lessons 
which that experience may suggent. Tho lo- 
cal history of this disease may l»e summed uu 
In a brief description of two epidemics which 
oecurred in 1871 and '77 respectively. With 
tlie exception ol these two Instances, but few 
naaes have occurred, and those t)eing of a 
Mild form and hcpnratcd so far apart, they

mnder form, there being only fiMirteen oaaas 
reported, of whom)four died. Immediately 
after the appearanaa of the flrat ease, a hos- 
pital for the reception of iwUenta was opened, 
lo which Ibe patlenu and other members of 
their families were at once removed. In less 
than six weeks dl traces of the disorder 
were removed. 

Since that time no oaMa of small-poz have 
occurred In this elty, although several re- 
ports to the contrary baye been ciroulaied. 

It is not so much tlie purpose of this artK 
do to give In uetdl an account of th«se epl- 
dcmlcs, as It is to bring to notkse sobm of the 
lessons which it taught us, by which we 
should proflt, should future cases of this dis- 
ease occur in our midst. . .^ . ^ . 

Tlie first and moat Important is that of Im- 
mediate^solatioaof aaehoMC as it occurs. 
This was acknowledged as a cardinsi priaci- 
pie by the eoosulting physicians, and adopt- 
ed by tho board of health during the latter 
part of ♦71 and again in '77. ^ ,^ 

For want of accommodations and other 
reasons, a system dmilar to that'Af qoaran- 
Una waa tried during the earl/ months of ♦71. 
'•A tboroni^ system of fumigating, cleans- 
ing and ventilating all roonu and dwellings 
where eases of small-pox or varioloid had 
been known to exist was adopted. Signals, 
by means of a red flag by day and a red light 
bv night, were employed to designate locali- 
ties where the disease existed. Police' offi- 
cers were also stationed at such places, to 
prevent communication and exposure, and 
the public was recommended not to frequent 
Infected distrlcU, and to avoid public gath- 
erings, places of amiuements, etc." 

Later, a hoauiUI was provided and placed 
under the efficient care of the late Dr. Abner 
W. Buttrlcit, of whom it has been well aald: 
"He stood between the living jmI the dead, 
and the pisgue was staved." ^Shortly after 
the esiablisbment of this order, small-pox 
rapidly declined, and the great beneflt to be 
derived by complete isolation is ehown by 
the official report, which atatesthst in Sep- 
tember there were fifty-two deaths ; In the 
first half of October, twenly-three; last half, 
seven, and only one In November. It should 
alHO be remembered that removals were not 
fully made a\id Isolation rendered complete 
until the last of September. This steady and 
marked reduction of the number of deaths 
shows In a striking manner what may be ac- 
compllslied, by this means of procedure, 
which, being adopted at once with the epi- 
demic of 1877, proved of so valuable impor- 
tance In checking lU fhrther progress. 

The impodanco of vaccination was also 
reoognixed as a means of protection, not- 
withstanding the arguments brought to hear 
in opposition. During both epidemics, a 
thorough system of vaccination was^rried 
out. Especially Is this true w I tb thS chil- 
dren. The teacljers lo our public schools 
have been very faithful In reftisiug to admit 
sny child who could not furnish a cerilOcate 
of vscel nation from a physician. This will 
be considered In ao light manner when it is 
remembered that during the irst epidemic 
"there were thirty-one deaths lh)m small- 
pox of infants under 1 year, forty-seven 
children between 1 and 6, and Ifty-two per- 
sons between 6 and SO." 

It mav be safe to say that at no time have 
the people of Ibis citv been better protected 
tbau at the prcHenttime, by meai>s of vaccina- 
tion, which Is acknowledged as affording the 
bcMt ntt a iuable protection against smallpox, 
miligatiug its severity when not preventing 

an attack. .,.,.. .. 

Again. The liberal use of dislnfectanta 
bears an ImporUnt relation in preventing 
the spresd of this Infection. A long list, 
containing twelve defiulte Instructions Id re- 
gard to disinfection, was published and exten- 
sively circulated by the press and other means 
during the flr^t epidemic, and was of len re- 
ferred to and brought to notice during the 
second. Their general use at all times, even 
when no special Infection Is prevailing, will 
aid to a better ssniury condition, which of- 
ten goes a long way as a protective influence 
In a community. . . ^ .. 

It has been sUted thst a hospital has been 
arranged for the reception of any case of 
smali-pox or varioloid whkh may occur in 
our city at the present time. Ito provision 
was a wise foreUiougbt on the part of those 
having the interesU of the public health un- 
der their care. ^ „ j 

Situated as Is this city on a line of rallrosd 
connecting the northern cities and the Cana- 
das with Boston and other cities of the 
coast, and having at all times a greater or lest 
floating population, consisting of several na- 
tionalities, eoming from places where small- 
Ex Is known to frequently exist, we cannot 
too well protected or watch with too zeal- 
ous care the first indicstlons ot Its approach. 
By continued vigilance we may prevent a ca- 
lamity of so serious a nature as the first, or 
even the second, epidemic of small-pox In 
our dty. D. N. PATTxnsoir.

Lowell has had bCardlng-honset of all 
kinds from its first settlement, but no tene- 
ment blocks, strictly, till within a few year«. 
As such blocks in other cities have been 
found most prolific sources and causes of 
disease, it is the dictate of wisilom and pru- 
dence that their character be well under- 
stood, eei)eda I ly as the erection of these 
buildings seems on the increase in the city. 
It is sinaular that the first experience Lowell 
had In this direction was on so large a scale 
as "Little Canada" presents. Ills thus de- 
scribed by an agent of the state board of 
healih and published in the report for 1880: 
•'Its area is less than two acres; its |>opula- 
tlon, according to the census just taken, is 
1,076 souls, who live in twenty-four tene- 
ment-houses. In addition to these, are one 
unfinished tenement-bouse, five 8tsbles,elgbt 
carriaga and wood-sheds, one bake>house, 
and sixteen privies, or slop-boppcrs, the two 
latter having 116 divisions. The one tene- 
ment-bouse yet unfinished, Is, In construc- 
tion, of the worst pattern, the ground-floor 
of one entire end of the building being oc- 
cupied by privies, buIltJnto the „bouse, and 
having slaebitig rooms drerhaad. °Tlia buHd^

The mortsllty for April (»7) fs n^ »<fg". 
compared with preyl<*us years— 189t (iw/; 
and 1881 (lll)>-conMiderlng we have quite 
an Increase of popu lallou. The character of 
the merUlily is still more favorable. There 
were flUeen deaths of pontons over 70 years 
of age, Including two at 88, and one at IM, 
with only 47 under flv#iears of age. Oonr 
sumption nmfces one-fifth— about tha uauftf 
proportion, and tho next highest, convul- 
dons 7, Is large. Most of these were under 
one year old, and the disease might have 
originated from teething. Indigestion, or 
some other complaint. Only six deaths oe- 
curred from contagious diseases, scarlet fe- 
ver 1, dlpbtherial,rand whooping cough 4, 
which Is quite unusual. This sbooid not be. 
Wbooping cough might, and ought to be, ex- 
terminated from the city. Let the same 
means of Isolation and prevention be ap- 
plied as are practised in reference to scarlet, 
fever and diphtheria, and a few months 
would banish whooping cough. One of the 
typhoid fever esses came from the upper 
part of Middle street, where complslots for 
yesrs have been made of the bad drainage 
and sewerage. Two other cases of fever In 
the same house recovered, oue being treated 
at St. John's hospital. 


Compislnta are frequently msde in this or 
that neighborhood, of the air being rendered 
impure or unwholesome from various causes. 
If this occuj-red only occasionally or arose 
from causes that could not be easily removed, 
like a malarid region of the coumry, auch a 
condition of the atmosphere must be tolerat- 
ed; but, when the change occurs from some 
business, or eaUblishment conducted for the 
proflt of an Individual or company, sijch a 
Duisanoe can readily be abated. In villages 
and cities, where the health, comfort, «.nd In- 
terest of great numbers are affected, the 
question becomes very important. Pure air 
is as much an ioalieuahl* right of every man, 
woman and child, as life, liberty, and the 
pursuit of happluesa. 

The law Is very broad and explicit oni this 
111 bidet* 

The chancellor in a neighboring sUte, In 
hit rulings lately in two Important cases, de- 
fines the law as follows: "Any trade or 
business, however lawful, which, from the 
place, or ibe manner iu which It is carried 
on, materially injures the property of others, 
or affects their health, or renders the enjoy- 
ment of life phvwic«lly uncoinfortalde, is a 
nuisance which It la the duty of the court to 
restrain." Again: "The law takes care that 
lawful and useful business shall not be piita 
stop to on account of every trifling or Ira- 
aginary anoovanee, such as may offend the 
Ssste or disturb the nerves of a fastidious or 
over-reflned person. But, on the othei; hand, 
it does not allow any one, whatever bis cir- 
cumsUnces or condition may be, to be driven 
from his home or be compelled to live in 
podlive discomfort, dthough caused by a 
lawful and useful business carried on m bis 

" Many* years since. Judge Shaw, of thhi 
sUle, In defining what constltul«s a nuisance 
in the eye of the law that should be abated, 
says: "It la not necessary that the corrup- 
tion of the atmo«phere should be such us to 
be dsngerous to health ; it Is sufficient that 
the effluvia are offensive to the senses, and 
render hablUtlons uncomforuble." 

It will thus be seen that It U not necessary 
to prove that health and life are endangt-red 
by a nulsauoe, upon which there might be a 
difference of opinion among physicians, but 
does it Injure property f does it reuder the 
enjoyment of life phVsloally uncomfortable? 
dot's It produce eflluvla offensive to the seiises 
and render hablutloni uncomforUblef 1.x- 
pert testimony Is here of no avail ; the law Is 
clear aud explicit, and, as every one will ad- 
mit, based upon justice and common sense. 


One of the first and most Important ad- 
vanuges for health is that every dwelling- 
house be carefully Inspected in reference to 
its sanitary condition. As the causes of dis- 
ease become better known and the value of 
health appreciated, such Inspection will be 
sought more and more by all intelligent per- 
sons. It Is not lo look after the ventilation 
of the dwelling, so much as liie drainage and 
sewerage — to see that there is no filth, leak- 
age, or poisonous gases here to endanger life. 
To make suuh examination advantageous, it 
requires that the iuHpector be thoroughly fa- 
miliar wilh sanitary laws. 

In some places In Great Brilain and In the 
Unltfd Slates this sanitary Inspection Is be- 
coming quite comraan. For this purpose 
sanitary engineers are employed; iu some 
places assodations are formed with this ob- 
ject in view, and in other places the work is 
performed by boards of health. In several 
cities and sUtes the question has been raised 
tlut an order or law ought to be enacted that 
too new dwelling-house should be occupied 
until Its i^nitary conditions and surroundings 
be approved by an engineer or officer of 
health, appointed for this purpose. 

When jour wife's health is bad, when 
your diildren are sickly, when yon Isel worn 
out, use Browa's Irott Blltori. *

There are 41 public school buildings in 
this city. If the bill which has passed the 
Senate forbidding the Issue of a license to 
sell liquor within 400 feet of a public school 
should become a law, it would, at a rough 
eatimate, prevent the granting of licenses to 
at least 50 who held the coveted uapers last 
year. Wliile there are many school bouses 
Which have no liquor shop within much 
more than 400 feet of Uiem, there are n any 
others that hive from two to half-a-dozen. 

While Mr. George E. Maker, of the firm of

Daniel Gage has purchased the stock in 
trade, implements and good will of the Rich 
ardson Ice company and therefore has the 
whole trade to himself this season. Tlie 
Richardson Brothers and their successors, 
the Ricbard^on Ice company, have been in 
business sluce 1875. Mr. Gage was so well es- 
tablished in trade whcu they commenced 
business and had jiven such a degree of 
satisfaction that there has seemed to be no 
successful opening for another similar busi- 
ness in the city. Mr. Gage's prices this 
year are llie same as last year. 

A handsome lap<itreak pleasure boat, built 
by J. H. Itusbton, Canton, N. Y., is now on 
exhibition al the store ofC. Zimmer, 16 Mid-

There are a good many people in Lowell 
besides Mr. Walker who are interested In 
knowing who "Huon" is, or was, as nothing 
has appeared in the publicaiiou since the 
criticism of the Easter Sunday music. Ap* 
parently, some one has l>een taking an un- 
pardonable liberty with Mr. Walker's name, 
deceiving tbe publishers of Mu»lc, and 
bringini( Mr. Walker Into a position that is 
altogether undesirable. Doubtless the pub- 
lishers will do their part in busking out the 
author of the very singular criticisms which 
they have publistied. 

That Salaaoa* 

Col. Webber, one of the New Hampshire 
fish commisxioners, who saw and measured 
the salmon found in the canal, writes thus to 
the Manchester Mirror : 

It was a female salmon, judging from the 
shape of tbe bead and jaw", ^ fiicbes long, 
and weighed 11 pounds. Tbeie can be no 
doubt that it was one of last year's run, on 
its way back to the sea after spawning, as a 
fresh-fun salmon from the- sea of that length 
would hitve weighed 19 or 20 pouuds. Ii 
could in no way hive got up into the canal, 
but must have 'entered from tbe upper end 
on iu way down stream. 

The fish wiis cooked yesterday at one of 
the hotels, as it was In perfect licnith appar- 
ently, and verv bright and clean, but when 
cutopeu the fiesh was almost white, like 
that of many brook trout, and as I was told 
last iilKbt by a gentleman who assisted in eat- 
ing it, tSHied exactly like a brook trout, with, 
none of the fat, oily flavor of a fresh-run 

This was undoubtedly due to its having 
lived on such loud as it could find in fresh 
water during the winter, and in fad sucli as 
the 1 1 out live on, and bad lust its color from 
tbe absence of the shrimps, prawns, etc., 
which appear to form tbe fo<id of the salmon 
wiiile In salt water, as their shells are the 
onlv things found in the stomachs ol all the 
salmon that have ever l>een examined when 
fresh from tbe sea. Tbe coloritijr found in 
many of our trout is supposed to bo caused 
by food of u somewhat similar character, and 
the trout ofllie Merrimnck valley arc mostly 
devoid ol high ttolor. When tbe trout get 
plenlv of cadtlice-worras or cray-fisb for food 
tiie Acsh is always high colored, but wlifii 
they depend U|>oii small fish or worms it is 
pale, or almost white. 

All these fads go to prove the theory of 
the fish commissioners of New England, that 
the salmon which go up our rivers, and 
spawn in November, spend one winter in 
fresh water, and only make biennial migra* 
lions for liie purpose of spawning. 

There is no question but that the salmon 
can l>e and are practically restoroil to the 
Merrimack river, snd the number coming up 
is increasing yearly. Seventy (70) salmon 
were seen in the Lawrence fisbway last sum- 
mer, during the hall hour at noon at which 
the fisbway was opened for ins|tection, and 
if there wer? as many passing at otiier i)eri- 
Oila of the day, it would give a total of 
8,800 salmon which passed that fl«hway. 

We know that, in spite of tlie unprece- 
dented low water in llie river in Juno and 
July, '81, nuinl>ers of salmon did go up as 
far as Plymouth, wlierH 125.000 eggs wore 
taken ami hatched, to bo placed in the Pem- 
Igewasset this month, besides 800,000 more 
obtained from Maine, and with a usual llodr 
of water and an Improvement of tbe channel

There are plenty of people wbo, Ilka tbe

eggs, are so Impatient that tbey cannot wait 
for the proper maturity of an experiment, 
and wbo pronounce tbe attempla to restock 
the Merrimack a failure, because tbe seed 
pianteii has not ooroe up as quickly aa a crop 
of mustard seed; but every year abows a 
suady improvement, and it is a decided slur 
on the enterprise of the.Amerioan people, to 
believe them incapable of doing what has 
been successfully ^Moropllahed In Europe.

A little boy wanUd a drum. His mother, 
wlahlng to give him an Impressive loMon, 
■uggested that If he should pray for It he 
might receive one. 8o at night, when ready 
for bed, he knelt down and prayed : 
Kow I lay ma down to sleep,

I pray the Lord ay soul to keep, 

(1 want a drum) 
If I should die before I waka, 
(1 want a. drum) .^ ^ . 
I pray tha Lord my soul toUka, 
(1 want a drum). 
Hli father, who had been let Into the se-

on the bed. Aa the youngstjer rose and his 
eve fell on the drum he exclaimed, n an em- 
pVatlc manner, thst banished al serious

A oonalderable number of young English

Is an erring creature whose life la full of rals-

who has transgressed the great laws of right- 
eousness. That he is therefore guilty before 
God of disobedience and wrong doing. Tlie 
idea that be inherits his guilt Irom any an- 
cestor away back to tbe first man, I distinct- 
ly repudiate. Ills guilt Is his own, and Is ex-

Speaker Noyea called a meeting of chair- 
men ofcoramittees this morning to consult aa 
to how business may be pushed in the House. 
If they will all pull and push together, and 
waste no time, two weeks will wind up the^ 
legislative worsted. 

The nearer the democrats got to the bill 
for renewing tbe national bank system, the 
less opposition tbey manifested, and at the 
end they will all probably agree to It, except 
those in whom tbe greenback hue is predom- 
inant. It was found utterly impoaslble to 

lUitke this a partv issue.

TbiB conference which the "regulars," as 
tbey are called, bad with the ••independents" 
in Pennsylvania, develops a fact which al- 
ways comes to tbe surface in these matters, 
that what the independents want is their 
ahare, if not somebody else's share also, of 
the offlccB. This Mr. Wolfe, who has made 
such a howl, will be satisfied with tbe lieu- 
tenant-governorship, and if he can have that 
he will endeavor to satisfy bis independent 
clan. ^^^^^^^___^ 

The Senate has appointed a committee of 
Ave to consider whether it will return the 
Kelgs bill, as requested by the House. The 
bill was declared by the Senate as improper- 
ly before them, because it was broader than 
the petition on which it was baaed. To re- 
fuse to send it back at the request of the 
House so that it may be put in shape which 
the Senate will consUer proper, would Indl- 
oate that there is something else besides pro- 
priety at issue. We do not recall an instance 
when either branch has ever refused, or 
even hesitated, to send back a paper, when 
requested by tbe other. 

The policy of coercion in dealing with 
Irish grievances having proved a complete 
and disgraceful failure, Mr. Gladstone, with 
commendable boldness, has determined upon 
a course of conciliation and concession. 
That this course will be productive of a bet- 
ter foeling between the English and Irish 
branches of tbe nominally united kingdom 
admits of no question, though some snags 
may be encountered in carrying it into ef- 
fect. The release of the members of Parlia- 
neatand other suspects is a good beginning. 
Mr. For«ter, while not sympathizing witb 
tbe new course of his leader, has helped it 
not a little by taking himself out of the way. 
Mr. Gladstone proposes to have peace and 
order in Ireland, and be has adopted the 
proper moans to secure them. The change, 
it la to be hoped, marks tbe beginning of a 
happier time for Ireland. 

The New York Timea cannot Join in any 
congratulations over tbe ao-called and, aa It 
thinks, mia^lled "proaperlty'» which baa 
enabled Uncle Sam to pay off nearly fourteen 
and a half million dollars of bis debt during 
the month of April. This amount, and mil- 
lions more, the Times aaya, is a heavy tax 
paid by every family. Last year for instance, 
according to tbe Times, our people paid 
(axes on iron and steel used by them, to the 
uaount of almost twenty-one and a 
bajf million dollars. This would be terrible, 
lldeedy if it were actually so much sextra 
m^Mity paid for nails and door-latcbea, fences, 
looif, machinery, and vehicles. But the 
^flgMt ahPfty* leaves out of the account, what 
^f^Aoold have bad to pay for our iron and 
ilaal, If fonlfo producers could have monop-

In the Senate Tuesday Mr. Crocker of Suf- 
folk moved that a committee of five be ap- 
pointed to consider and report what action 
the Senate shall take upon the request of the 
House for the return of the papers relating to 
tbe Meigs elevated railroad scheme. Tbe 
motion prevailed, but the committee was not 
appointed. A report was presented Increas- 
ing tbe salaries of certain justices and clerks 
of police courts, among them that of the 
Judge of the first district court of eastern 
Middlesex, whliih it fixes at fl500. The 
Worcester sewage bill was discussed, but not 
acted upon. ' 

After a long debate the House engrossed 
the bill to regulate tbe exercise of liquor li- 
censes in dwellings, but it was totally 
changed, and now provides that the uulhori- 
tiea "Bhall"— instead of ""may"- close the in- 
terior passages to rooms where liquor Is 
sold from rooms used as dwelling-places. 
The bribery committee reported that there 
were no facts on which to base the charge 
of bribery, but that Mr. Allen was justified 
from what he heard in believing the chsrge 
to be true. A bill to raise ^he pay of attend- 
ants of tbe legislature was admitted. It gives 
the messengers f5 a dav, tbe doorkeepers, as- 
sistant doorkeepers and postmaster f5 a day 
and f 100 extra at tbe close of the session, and 
pages f 3 a day. It was explained that it re- 
stored the salaries to where tbey were before 
the reduction of 1876, and to tbe point at 
which tbey stood for twelve years before 
that date. 

The bill for the better protection of sheep 
from dogs was rejected.

which we have had manufactured dur-

The celebrated Lowell Body Brus-

and OoBOission— Mr. Forstor 




Ywnell and Others Released from 
Friaon— Great Bfijoioing. 

In tbe House of Lords Tuesday eveBtiig, 
Karl Granville, secretary of state for foreign 
tfUrSt announced tbe resignation of Mr. W. 
I. Ferster, ehief secretary for Ireland, and 
the Intention of tbe govornment to release 
the three imprisoned members of Parllg- 
ndnt. He also announced tbe futore policy 
towardii Ireland, which Mr. Gladstone also 
•zplained In tbe Rouse of Commons. The 
latter stated that a large number of other 
''suspects'* would be released, and that the 

gorernmeut, instead of renewing the coer- 
cion act, would introduce a measure remedy- 
ing the administration of Justice in Ireland. 
Be said instructions bad already been sent to 
Irelnnd for^be relesse of tbe three impris- 
one4 members of Paiifiament, and that tbe 
lists' of the "suspects^ were being carefully 
eonaldered, with a view to tbe release of ail 
except those who were arrested on suspicion 
of hdvlngbeea personally concerned in out- 
rages. These releases would be on the gov- 
ernment's own responsibility. Mr. Ulad- 
atone stated thst Mr. Forster had resigned 
beoaSse he was not willing to share the re- 
■ponilbiilly, sud that Mr. Forster would 
make a personsl explanation on Thursday. 
The Bieasure which the government will in- 
troduce remedying liie aamiflistratlon of jus- 
tice Iq Irehind deaU with tbe protection of 
. life and property. 

Mr. Sexton, at the conclusion of Mr. Olad- 
•toners remarKN. arose and said that the gov- 
ernment had tai^en the first step In a policy 
that#ould crown its administration with 
glory; and would produce ties of mutual in- 
tersat between Ireland and England. 

Mr. Gladstone, speaking witb reference to 
the coercion act, made the special reserva- 
tion that if peace and security should be 
Jeopnnliaed by tbe action of secret societies 
(be gowemmeut would consider it its duty to 
propose counteracting measures. He de- 
claradthat tbe government did not think the 
coerclen act bad failed, as it had served an 
important purpose in a great crisis. He 
warmty praised the manner in which Mr. 
Forster bad performed his duties, snd ex- 
pressed regret at bis retiremenf. He de- 
clared that none of the measuren announced 
in the Queen's speech at tbe opening of the 
aessioUk except the resolutions in regard to 
theru1#sof psriiamenlary procedure, would 
be allowed to stand in tbe way of the meas- 
ures wbicb the government would introduce 
for restbring peace and order in Ireland.

After the fire at the Washington street 
church in Dover, N. H., Tuesday morning, 
many persons gathered to look at the ruins. 
While several were standing in the chapel 
room on the ground floor, one of tbe chim- 
neys snd the gable^nd of the church sudden- 
ly fell, and Mrs. Whitney, Mrs. Stewart Clif- 
ford, J. If. Burleigh and a lad named Peters 
were t>uried in tbe ruins. All are severely 
injured and inav not recover. From tbe Pe- 
ters l>oy it wa<4 learned that Juilge John B. 
Yaruey stood Iwslde bim at tbe time of tbe 
crasb, and after an hour's search his dcaJ 
iHHiy was found, mangled beyond recognition 
by beavv timbers, and it was taken to the 
house where his wife and two daughters 
were anxiously waiting. Their grief was 
heart-rending. Judge Yarnev was 68 years 
old, and at the time of Irin death waa

brd county and one of the editors and pro- 
prietors of the Dover Inquirer, a weekly,

Dartmouth college in 1848; was profcsHor of 
mathematics in tha college 10 years, and post- 
master of Dover 4 'years. Few men in tbe 
country were mors. widely known or more 
highly esteemed. It is generally thought 
that not sufficient cam was taken to keep 
people away from the ruins.

Naw YosK, May 8.— A London despatch 
of last night says : Seldom has It been tbe 
lot of a premier to announce a change of 
policy amid such derision as was manifested 
in the House this evening. Mr. Gladstone 
aeemed to feel himself In a false position. His 
anxiously awaited statement was made with 
an air of timidMy quite foreign to bim, and 
with a brevityTi phrase altogether unusual. 
His embarraNsmeRt was especially evident 
when be endeavored to show consistency and 
unchanging pwrpose on tbe t>«rt of the aov-^ 
ernraent. while lo tbe sense of*tbeiwnoie 
House he was announcing a retreat all along 
the line. Tlio mocldug laughter snd bitter 
scorn wherewltb from time to time bis words 
were greeted, made the task painful, though 
be tried hard to put a bold face on the mat- 
ter. It was the general feeiingof tbe House, 
even on the miolsterial nide, that Mr. Fors- 
ter baa been made a Jonah, and that be en- 
tirely disapproved of tbe policy of tbe gov- 
ernment In releasing the tnree members of 
Parliament and the other suspects. It was 
evident from bis curl, stern answers to the 
questions put tonight by tbe Irish members, 
and from bis defence of tbe Irish police 
and magistrates^ His fUii statement or 
apology, . as it is beinc called, will 
not come until Thursday, owing 
to tbe necessity of obtaining tbe personal 
sanction of her mi^esty to bis retirement. 
He, however, took no trouble to conceal bis 
jdiagust. Tbe Land League party is mild and 
conciliatory. A promise of anything fTom 
that quarter means a good deal. It has, in 
fact, l>eaten the governnionl, and it knows it. 
There is little room to doubt that Mr. Par- 
nell's liberation is tbe result of direct negotia- 
tions between himself and tbe government, 
and that be got tbe best of the treaty. A 
statement was made in several papers that 
some srentlemHn had visited Kllmalubam and 
interviewed Parnell twice in cue day. A 
question was asited in tbe House about the 
matter. It now sppears that Capt. O'Shea waa 
tbe person who msde the visits, and did so 
as an ambassador of the government. The 
result Is seen in tbe terms of peace. Tbe 
truce included a complete change of policy, 
namely : Lord Cowper shunted for *'a strong 
man of experience ;^^ Mr. Forster becomes 
what Mr. Sexton CMlled him on one occasion 
in the lobby, "a spil(ed cannon;" the release 
of all Ihe suvpects not charged with actual 
crime; the lapsing of tbe coercion act in 
September, the taking of the Irish members 
into consultation into the government of Ire- 
land, and a measure to Improve the land act; 
Mr. Gladstone's statement that a measure 
might be proposed to den I witb secret socie- 
ties is looked upon as a kind of saving clause 
for appearance's sake; with rererence to Mr. 
Forsler's successor, rumor fixes it partly 
upon Mr. Shaw, who,'however, fears that be 
would not be re-elected Trom Cork if be ac- 
cepted the post, and partly upon a divided 
secretaryship l>etween Sir Charles Dilke and 
Mr. Shaw Lefevre. Mr. Forster, it Is 
thought likely, will be provided with a peer- 
age, or some valuable appointment. 

DIsgraoerui SampIO-iorTrtokcrr tm Rloe- 

Washington, May 2.— Col. Lowe, who is 
contesting the seat of Gen. Wheeler of the 
Eighth Alabama district, has discovered 
some new evidences of fraud on the part of 
the (wntestee which he will submit to the 
electJoiiH committee this morning. In the 
record made up for tbe committeo tliere ap- 
pears among other depositions that of L. L. 
Wheeler, iHken before a magistrate at Wheel- 
er, Alabama, tbe residence of General Wheel- 
er, the contestee. In bid deposition the de- 
ponent tost ifles to having examined the poll 
list of votes csst at the congressional election 
and compared It with the registration list, 
I >!2^ to having discovered between IfiO and 
200 uames on the poll list which were not on 
tbe registration list. These names sre ap- 
pended to the deposition, and the contestee 
asks ihaLthey be not counted. Col. Lowe 
bus compared the list of names with the reg- 
istration Mitt, and found that they did appear, 
tbouKb difTuring a little in the Hnelliog. A 
few, taken at random from tbe list made by 
the deponent, L. L. Wheelftr.' with "the man- 
ner in which they are written on tho regis- 
tration iUt, will illustrate the tech- 
nicality on which it is asked that 
they be thrown out. It needs to 
be said, however, thai the names on the reg- 
istration list are v/ritten by the voters or by 
their dlroclion, while tlie names on the poll 
list are written by the poll clerk. Names as 
tbey appear on tbe poll list: "Jeff. Mc- 
Donald, Wesley Orier, Jerry Bell, Eugene 
nix. Sterling Strong;" names as tbey ap- 

Bsar on the registration list: "Jefferson Mc- 
onald, West Greer, Jerre Bell, Eugene 
Eicks, Stirling Strong." According to Col. 
Lowe, L. L. Wheeler, who made this depo- 
sition, is tbe fifteen-years-oid daugh- 
ter of Gen. Wheeler, the contestee, 
and the officer before whom 
she mude the deposition is her 
undo. Col. Lowe says Miss Wiieeier waa 
Instructed to make the deposiliou by her 
father, and be says this is an instance of 
southern chivalry as exempllllcd in election 
cases. The contestant says he does not want 
a uannimous report in his favor from the 
Eiectious committee, as he wants to have tha 
matter tborouichly discussed in the House, 
and he tblnk«> it will not be if tbe committee's 
report should be unanimous.

totally distinct from tbe release of the sus-

we are carrying is needed thsn the 
large sales made in this department 
thus far this season. Although we 
have advertised them as only adapted 
to boys' wear, we are told by those 
who should know that they are 
equally fashionable for girls of the 
same age. . Without solicitation sev- 
eral sales of certain styles hav^ been 
made for girls' wear within a few 
days. When we say we show one 
hundred styles in Kilt Suits, in all 
sizes Arom 2 to 6 years, it gives evi- 
dence to a thoughtlUI miud of the 
varietj of our stock. Hiese suits 
are made in New York City. They 
are of the very latest styles in fabric 
and make. The prices are 25 per 
cent, below those asked for inferior 
styles and goods.

That's a common expres- 
sion and has a world of 
Cleaning. How much suf- 
fering is summed up in it 

The singular thing about 
it is, that pain in the back 
is occasioned by so many- 
things. May be caused by 
kidney disease, liver com- 
plaint, consumption, cold, 
work, nervous debility, &c. 

Whatever the cause, don't 
neglect it Something is 
wrong and needs prompt 
attention. No medicine has 
yet been discovered that 
will so quickly and surely 
cure such diseases as 
Brown's Iron Bitters, and 
it does this by commencing 
at the foundation, and mak- 
ing the blood pure and rich.

consolliigto the Hurvivors to read In the 
mortuary re|K)rt that U was not all jnundice, 
but icttTUH lu'.uius febrilU iipalicus. Nobody 
could reasoniilily expect to nurvlve all that. 
When a person reaiN tliat, lie Is astonished 
that llie iiatient did not die Hoon«r ami more 
freauenlly. ARaln, it fliitter* common fulKH 
to reaidUiat some poor dovil died of a diHeane 
with a name a mile and u half long, while In 
the same inoi-iuiiry report perliaps some 
weaUliy biuiUer Iimh been called hence 
on a disease oftwo .ylUbl'-s. Over In Sun 
Antonio the people die ol Icterus spnilis, of 
seven kinds of lubtircnloseH, of icterus uraeii- 
orrboeu, luteKtinalls pulraonulis, and five oth- 
er kinds of icterus. They can also die, if 
they want to, of unenisma, coUen flatulenta, 
Wllosa— parllfularly when complicated with 
Btrapia medullae Npinulis or marasmus Inlan- 
tium, caused probably bv too much vox pop- 
ali, B0X vomica, e piuribus uuuio, etc., 
particularly etc. Nobody in San An- 
tonio nska, "How is your prickly heal 
coming onF The AInmo citiaen asks. 
♦•How is your eczema solare coming onf" to 
which the sufferer replies, *'Much better, 
thank you; it wss uot the regular eraem a so- 
lare at all, but only ec«cm» impeliglon oldes, 
complicated a little with chloasma ephells." 
Nothing is more common than to hear even 
colored people conversing H4>mewh»t In the 
following style: "I say. Uncle Mose, how s 
your chile comin' onf I heerd yer was up 
all night wid it, dal it had d-* wussost kindob 
peretonltls oh de mucuous membrane mixed 
up wid vomitus cliroidcus, and a misery in 
dechist." To this Uncle Mose responds: 
"De chile has done got ober all dat, but dis 
mornin' hit wa« all broke out wid epilepsia 
thoracica, but I has strong hopes 
ob bit's gettin' well cf larnygostenose

rheumatixmus psralyilcus running up my lef 
lea, hut 1 }">"* knocked de sliffnexs out oo hit 
Wid Buffer's liniment." Not long since in 
' glancinx over the Ban Antonio papers, we 
were surprised to read Hint somebodv, for 
the first lime in in mv years, had died of an 
intelligible inaladv. II reads that: "Mr. 
Blank.Hged tlilrtv-six. malarial intoxication." 
Jess ao. Thill's plain enough. Mr. 
Blank, while suffeiinjj from malaria, tried to 
cure It whh xour-inash whiskey, and between 
the aiiilaria unil the remedy the poor man 
failed to survlvo. It was a great s.iurce of 
satisfaction for us to know piedsely 
one person in San Antonio really tl 
of. It was not of too much gastro-alaxia 
saburralli", or even htBinaternesis, or or 
cardlapodo!rraolH,or anyof those ordinary 
modes of shuffling off the morhil coll, but 
simply malarial intoxieallon. Our satisfac- 
tion that people over ai San Antonio had re- 
turned totheokl-fasliloned diseases was of 
"ihort duration, for the very next Oav our 
eve was riveted in its HO«tket by a card from 
l5r. Monger, tlie clly physician, In the San 
Antonio Evening Light, saying : "The tech- 
nical meaning ol the term In tills case Is 
not Mnloxlealion' nor 'toxleoliOBmia,' but

LOWELL, Mu..., March 1, 1882. 
I was a great .ulferer for many year, with .alt 
rheum. I ooufuUed numerous physiclaas in re- 
iard to my case, who, alter treating me nnsnc- 
ce.^lully for a long tlme,pri>nounced It incurable, 
U being hereditary. I finally grew "pidly worse 
until my head, face and ears were in a terrible 
condition, my ear. having become a running

Mr. Stevtn$ / — Lowell. Deo. 16. 1881. 

1 am 7« year, of age. During the pa.t five 
or .Ix year. 1 have .uffered .o much from .ciatic 
rheumatism and neuralgia that I thought. I 
■taould die, and many time. I wl.bed I migbt. 
In order to be free frotn pain. I laid out a good 
deal of money In medicine., but got little help 
ttom any of them . I had .ome of the be.t doctor. 
In the city, but they confc.wd that my ca.e. was 
a peculiar one and they could do nothing for me. 
For five year, catarrh has been added to my ml.- 
erics. For five week, before taking your aar.a- 
Darilla. I bad a terrible racking cough. I tried 
•ome balum. but It did me no good. I couldu'i 
lie down more than fifteen mfuute. at a time 
without choking up, and I really felt that I 
couldn't live more than two month.. I had, be- 
.Ides all my other troubles, a large bunch on my 
neck, larger than an Englisb w*lnut, whloti the 
doctors said could not be cured. My rest was 
broken. I could do no more work about the house, 
and was even .carcely able to walk. Without 
saying a word to any one, because all in the 
bouse bad loot all faith In medicines, I managed 
to get to the bor.e car. and by them to your .tore 
fbr a bottle of the Harsaparilla. I had seen the 
testimonials In the Courier, and felt that perbapi 
It might help me as well as others. I did not ex 
DcetTt would make me a new person, but I hoped 
itwould relieve me a little. Thl. was Oct. 11. 
I had scarcely taken the first three doses before i 
felt a change for the better. In three or four 
nlshts I was able to sleep without disturbance, 
and my re.t was perfect. The flr.t bottle cured 
the bunch on my neck, which ha. now completely 
dUanneared. I felt the .clatlc rheumatism leav 
ins me. 1 to walk wlthouttr ouble 
and to work about the hou.e. The caUrrh 
sradually decreased. I could not begin te tell 
you all the good the Saraaparilla ha. done for 
me A. auTn.Unce of the improvement I may 
state that I was able to walk from my house, 100 
Hlxh street, to your store on Middlesex street for 
the se«!ond bottle, Nov. 22. The Mar.aparilla ha. 
entirely renewed my .y.tem, and I feef a. well as 
I did forty years ago. I am now perfeoUy happy. 
The Sarsaparllla bas been a great comfort to me, 
and I hope that God will blea. you lor It. I am 
able to work now, and to enjoy life a. I have not 
done for many long years. 1 may add that any 
daachter and her husband have aiso used the 
medlolne, and they have found much relief from 
It aa it bas Improved their appetite, and helped 
them In other ways. Yours gratefu'ly.

milk from their farm has been carried for so 
many years. They are quite reticent as to 
their plans concerning the disposition of 
their pasture lands in the event that Fort 

^ Hili park is not accepted by the city, though 
the increased taxes they will doubtless be 

"^calletl upon to pay under the plah of the as- 
sessors for equalizing taxation may induce 
them to dispose of some portion of the farm.

have determined to organize a union that 
shall prove of some value to the edu'^ational 
work of the city. Heretofore Lowell teachers 
have not bfencou-ipleuousin teachers' gatli-

own that will be well worth alU-nding. Next 
Monday evening a meeting will be held in 
tbe ball of the Green school, where papers 
will be read by Mr. Chase of the High scliool, 
Mr. Burbank of the Edson school and Mr. 
Wbitcomb of the Varnum school, and 
teachers generally will be invited to discuss 
tbe views advanced. This movement was 
started by the grammar masters, some of 
whom wanted the meetings to be open to all 
interested in education, but it was finally 
concluded to confine themstrlctiv to teacliers. 
There is very evident need of just such an 
Institute as it is proposed to form, and u good 
square sea>«on ofialklng shop" will be help-

the applications for fourth-class llosnses. 
Of tjip 47 victuallers' liquor licenses granted 
only 6 ofihem flTe^tTHwetton comraoir vtctaat- 
lers' licenses alrt-ady signed bv the mayor, 
and itis verv doubtful and indeed improba- 
ble that he will si^cn luiv of the others. Those 
who have received the licenses may make a 
test case of the validity of their victuallers' 
licenses signed bv a majority of the board of 
aldermen. AldeVineii Oaiity, Cushing and 
Wriglit voted against all licenses lust night, 
and alderman Smith prevented the granting 
ol quite a number of others by bis vote in op- 
position, making the vote i to' 4. Tbe mayor 
did not vote on any of the licenses, and his 
vote against licenses would not have changed 
the result In any case. The new law seems 
to deprive the mayor of a vote on the license 

The committee on licenses and police in- 
terviewed the city marsiial this forenoon re- 
garding llie enforcement of tlio law. It will 
be enforced against those who have Ijeen re- 
fused licenses. In other cases opportunity 
may be allowed for the mayor to sign any of 
the licenses granted, and tliere will not prol>- 
ably be any baste In prosecuting dealers 
whose cases are still pending before the

The Change in IrUh Palle|r— ITlewe af 
Ija«al IrUh«*aa«rtoana. 

The decided change in Mr. Gladstone's 
Irish policy, accompmied by tbe resignation 
of Mr. Forster, the Irish secretary, and the 
release of some of the suspects, is naturally 
the subject of discussion todav among promi- 
nent representatives of the Irish-American 
people of our city. What they said is worthy 
of note. 

Mr. Humphrey O'Sulllvan, of the firm of 
O'Sullivan Brotiiers, considered the change 
a moral victory fur the uolloj of tlie 
Land League, which had been one of 
passive resiHtance. He attrilMited the 
release of Pamcll and others to tbe fact 
that England would be obliged to re- 
lease the Americana by fear of foree, and 
that she could not consistently retain the 
Irish suspects, in justice, after releasing the 
Americans on the ground of fear. The 
change of policy iii n confession of England's 
inabifltv to govern Ireland. It will givoan 
impetus to tlie American Land League, to 
whose inlluence the present result can he 
clearly trailed. 

ae\. Edmund Buckle, O. M. L, of Peler- 
boiouKb, N. H., who was in town today, was 
delighted with the news. The result was 
just what he expected, and he attributed it 
largely to the no-rent manifesto, which was 
so violently condemned at tbe time it was 
proclaimed. He l»elievcd t liat GbKlatoiie was 
willing to change to a policy of concest»ion 
when public sentiment In England permit- 
ted, and the no rent tlortrlne had forced that 
sentiment to the surface. He thought that 
the Irish would feel encouraged to demand 
needed reforms by the course of the prime 
minister. Fr. Buckle thought all the sus- 
pects would be ><peedily released. 

John Marren, esq., formerly president of 
the Lowell Land League, says that the re- 
lease of I he prisoners and the change in poli- 
cy foreshadowed are a triumph of the no-rent 
policy. But for the arrest of Purnell much 
of the disorder that has prevailed in Ireland 
would have been avoided. The British gov- 
ernment bss learned a le«son that will beaal- 
utary in its results. Gladstone waa fear- 
ful that bis ministry might fall, and tbe 
change of policy is a movement for self-pres- 

Tlie clergymen at the church of Ibe Im- 
maculate Conception say that the failure of 
the coercion |>oiicy was to be expected, this 
result being only a questtiou of time. Qlad- 
stone's policy has proved aaSsbort-sigbted as it 
was illibend. 

Rev. Wm. O'Brien of St. Patrick's church 
considered the news very cheering. It was 
the first step toward home rule for In-lanii, 
and marked the failure of the governmenl's 
policy. It was tlie most soccessrul paaaive 
revolution iliat the world had ever known. 
Other priests connected with St. Patrick's ax- 
pressed Himilar views. ,, 

Senator Crowley didn't believe th^t the no- 
rent doctrine accomplished the change. That 
policy was communism, not American and 
unchristian. He didn't believe in outrages. 
He thought tliat Ireland would still be in 
chains, but l>elieved that if the League 
would now go in earnestly and quietly for 
home rule it would be granted, and Ireland 
become at least as free as Canada, which was 
as much as could ever t>e h<»ped for. The 
senator praised the L md League highly, say- 
ing it had educated tlie people, prevented 
revolution, aud secured great advancement 
of Irish interests. 

Mr. J. J. O'Sulllvan, also of O'Sulllvan 
Brothers, lakes a radically diffierent view. 
He says: To a man that ever exi»ected that 
the Lsnd League would ho the means of rid- 
ding Ireland of English misrule, there is 
nothing encouraging In the present situution. 
The very policy that Michael Davilt repre- 
sented is the policy which England express- 
ly repudiates. His policy was an extremely 
aggressive one. and bad the support of a 
l'«r;fe share of the Irish people. Mr. O'Sulll- 
van believes that Mr. Sexton was too precip- 
itate in his congratulations. After a short 
time he fears that rent will be paid, and the 
chains be riveted harder than tiefore. As 
an American citizen bo can find no satisfae- 
ilon in the expression of Mr. Gladstone giv- 
ing no credit to our government for the re- 
lease of tlie Iriah American suspects. He 
also believes that if the no-rent policy was 
lived up to, this change of policy would not 
have taken place.

On motion of alderman Smith, D. Moody 
Prescott was made an widitional member of 
the committee on atate aid. George L. Fow- 
ler was licensed to obstruct Mount YerBoa 
street for the removal of a iNiIldlng. 


Albert V. Partridge, J. Qranvllle Hunton 
and Anne W. Cullen were granted oommon 
victuallers' licenses. Tbe committee on li- 
censes requested leave to withdraw on tbe 
following applications for vlctuall'-r licenses, 
but tlie board refused to adopt tbe recom- 
mendation of tbe report: J. F. Holland, 
Dutton street; M. Lahey, Oorbain 
Htreet; Jneeph Cbabotte, Market 
street; Nathan Parker, South street; 
ICdward Li^mey, Suffolk street. A hearing 
was granhed the Anti-License League 
Wednesday eveniug. May 10th, on U» sub- 
ject of granting liquor licenses. 

A reinonstranou was received from Dr. Oil- 
man Kimball, owner of adjoining property, 
to the granting of a liquor license to Patrick 
J. Courtney, No. 270 Merrimack street: and 
a n'luonstranue was received from Mayor 
Runels to the graiitiug of a license on premi- 
ses adjoining his property at tbe comer of Ap- 
pieloii and Oorliam streets. >> 

Alderman Smith offered an order that the 
niiinbcr of licensee granted be limited to 
100, in addition to apotliecaries. Alderman 
Garitv moved ao amendment that the num- 
Ikt be limited to 60, exclusive of a|H>theca- 
ries. Alderman Sleeper moved an am'-nd- 
nient to tbe amendment that the number Iw 
limited to 150. The amendments snd origin- 
al order were. In turn, ilefeated. Alderman 
Smith moved ihat all druggists who have ap- 
plietl for licenses have leave to withdraw. 
Alderman Cushing moved an amendment 
that all persons who had app'ied for licenses 
and hud advertised their applications, have 
leave to withdraw. The yeas and nays were 
called for on alderman Cushi ng** anaend- 
ment, and it was defeated by a vote of three 
to five — aldermen Cushing, Garity and 
Wright voting for it. Alderman Smith's mo- 
tion was then defeated by a viva voce vote. 

Alderman Garity moved that all the 
applications for license be referred to the 
committee on licenses inorder ihattbey might 
l>e revised. Some of itie applicants canuot 
bo properly granted liceiiHes for tlie reason 
thai their licenses were forfeited tlie past 
year, for the violation of their conditions, 
and for other reasons. It was best tliat they 
should be carefully looked over. Aldermen 
who are to vote for lleenses did not want to 
render themselves liable to prosecution and 
fine for granting them contrary to law. 

AUIerman Sleeper said that there had been 
plenty of time before now for tbe committee 
on licenses and others to examine the appli- 
cations that bad been legally advertised, 
and those who cannot be granted licenses un- 
der tlie law are well known. Alderman 
Smith iiidn't see any need of referring back to 
the committee. He moved that the applica- 
tions be relerred to a special committee, con- 
silting of aldermen Prescott. Phillips and 
Wliitaker, and the motion was defeated, al- 
derniun Smith not voting. Alderman Wbita- 
kcr said that he had submitted tbe advert isetl 
iint to offieer Harris, and he had found but 
four names upon it of persons who had been 
convicted the past year of vioUllon of their 

A recess was taken. On rc-assembling Al- 
derman Sleeper said the license members had 
conferred anti they recommended the grant- 
ing of liquor licenses to all the fourteen inn- 
liolders who hail advei Used t heir applications, 
bttt Itap^ared that John F. Noyes, of I lie 
Noyes bouse, bad not received an Inubolder's 
license this year, snd that Andrew 
J. Derby succeeds Andrew J. Derby 
A Co., of the Waverley bouse, snd bad ^nt in 
an application for license to the board, upon 
which a report could not be made till it was 
properly adverilsiHl. The other twelve ap- 

f>li(;ants were granted liquor licenses as inn- 
lolders, bv a vote of 6 to 3, with tlie excep- 
tion of iienry Emery of the Merrimack 
liouse, tbe vote upon whose application was 
4 to 4. Aldermen Cushing, Garity, and 
Wright voted against all the lit^enses, and Al- 
dermen Phillips, Prescott, Sleeper, Wbita- 
ker, and Smith voted for all except that to the

A new nail is being mnnul^ctured' at the 
works of the Wareham Nail company, to lie 
used iu putting up Imrb wire fencing. A 
nail of this kind was invented in 1875 by n 
Mr. Smylhe of IlllnoiH. Ii was, however, 
verv expensive to the mNnufucturer, being 
made ot inMlleablo iron. Suitseqiicntly Mr. 
C. W. Dean of Taunton, who is connected 
with the Wareliitm company, invented a 
method of cutting these nulls from band or 
similar Iron, and having perfected the ma- 
chinery at New Haven, Ct., Is now making 
them and successfully competing with the 
staples commonly used In wire fencing.

He Is in coiijun«;tion with the sun at 6 o'clock 
on the afternoon of tbe 6tb. The movements 
•r Saturn and Neptune are so closely associ- 
ated during the month, that the history of 
the one includes that of tbe other. They 
travelalmostsideby side as tiicy arrive at 
oonjuhction with tlw sun on the same day; 
•ome into conjunction with each otiier a few 
days later; and then change places on the 
•elestial track. Neptune prect-iling and Sat- 
urn following. Neptune nets on the Ist ol 
the month about a quarter aOer seven 
o'clock In I lie evening; at the end of the 
month be rises about baif-past three o'clock 
in tbe morning. 

Jupiter is evening star until the 30th, 
when at three o'clock in tlie morning be 
takes bis turn In coming into conjunction 
with the snn. He will continue to l»e visible 
about half the month, arter which his lesser 
beams will !)*• eclipsed by tlie more power- 
■ ful suns. He is so far away that his moons 
cannot be seen during May and June. Be- 
fore he is lost to view, be makes bis farewell 
appearance bv getting up a lovely picture on 
ttie western skv. On the 6ih he is in con- 
junction with 'Venus, piuj^ing nearly one de- 
gree bouih of ht'r. There is no more ii.ler- 
eating conjunction among tlie planets than 
that where tbe queen of the stars and tbe 
•'father of the gods" api)roacb each other, 
akbougb the actors in the present conjunc- 
tion are not in their brightest phase. The 
planet* set about half-past 8 o'clock, nearly 
Hii hour and a half alter tbe sun. Venus is 
aboutSdegreesand Jupinr 4 degrees north 
of tbe sunset point. Tliis will be one of tbe 
loveliest pictures that will be traced upon 
the sky during a month of intense planetary 
uetivitv. Jupiter sets now not long after 
balf-pa'st 8 o'clock ; at the end of tlie month 
he rises nearly with the sun, about bull-past 

4 o'clock. . , .... 

Mars .8 evening star during the month, but 
bla movement^ are devoid of Incident. He 
aeU* now about a quarter before 1 o'clock in 
the morning; at tlie end of tbe month be 
aeU at balf-past 11 o'clock in tbe evening. 
Uranus is evening star, and plays tbe role of 
a looker-on. 

Tenus is evening star and heads the list for 
her peerless beauiv. She is now a brilliant 
object in the west soon after sunset, and in- 
creasing in size and lustr*- with every succes- 
sive appearance. She plays lier part in two 
noteworthy conjunctions during the month. 
Forsbeisnear Jupiter on the 5lb and near 
Mercury on tbe 30tb, as already described. 
Tenus now sets at twenty minutes after 8 
o'clock ; at tbe end of the month about twen- 
ty minutes after 9 o'clock in the evening. 
The May moon lulls on the 3d, and wins no 
special distinction. But the new moon of 
the 17ih is tbe most distinguished of tbe 
-year. She celebrates the commencement of 
her cour-B by causing u total ellipse of the 
sun, invisible here, but visible in the enslerii 
bemisplicic. The lino ol totality passes 
acro-is the north of Africa, the soulli of Asia, 
a >d ends in the I'aeific Ocean. 

The new moon also signalizes her course 
on the same day by a rare iihenoineuon, tbe 
occultallon of Jupiter. At twenty-four min- 
utes after 7 o'clock, Washington time, the 
new moon, sixteen hours and a half after her 
change, will pass directly over Jupiter and 
occult or bide him from view. As from 
new moon till full, the moon moves with tbe 
dark edge lOremost, Jupiter will suddenly 
disappear when he reaches the dark rim, 
producing a startling effect as if he were sud- 
denly annihiliited from the sky at a point 
where bis path was unobstructed. There 
are few observers who will possess the prac- 
ticed eye required for witnessing an occultn- 
tiou with the moon so near the sun. But it 
can be done by those who know where to 
look with the naked eye and with the aid of a 
aood opera glass or a small telescope. Jupi- 
ter on that evening will be al>out one and 
one-third degrees north of the sunset point 
and about ten ilegrees cast of tbe sun, and 
sets a few minutes before 8 o'clock. I he oc- 
oultation of a planet by tbe moon Is a rare 
rht, and that of. Jupiter by the sJepder 
crescent will not soon be ibrgotten. 
Mav Is, therefore, a grand gala season 
among the planets. Into one short month 
are crowded more Important events than 
those that somoiimes illustrate llic records of 
several successive months. The conjunction 
of the three largest planets of the system 
with tbe sun; the conjunction of six planets 
with each other; the superior conjunction of 
Mercury: the total eclipse of tbe sun, and 
the occultation of Jupiter form a brilliant 
succession of pbenoniena as Imposing to the 
. mental eye as they sre Lteautiful to the phys- 
ical eye. The grand feature of the month is, 
however, the number of planets in line with 
the sun at nearly tlie same time, and the mar- 
vellous prepomierance of planetary attrac- 
tion pulling upon the sun in one direction. 
Mercury Is the first to drop into line, Saturn 
and Neptune follow next, and gigantic Jupi- 
ter Is tbe last to join tbe ranks. Tbe sun Is 
now passing through the maximum of sun- 
spots. Whether the plancis have anything 
to do with tbe commdtlon agitating bis sur- 

face is t-omfthlng which no astronomar has 
yet been able to d'tei mine. The problem

Hoaacliald HUiU. 

Almood fhisliDg makes a delicious ft<1dl' 
tion to a loaf of wbito cake. Beat tbe whites 
of two eggs to a sllff frost— so stiff, io fact, 
that you couhl turn tlie platter upside down 
if necessary. Stir iu halfu pound of pulverized 
■ugur and about a quarter of n pouud of al- 
moiuls, blanched and powdered to a pa«ito. 
Fiuvor will) roae water, tind, if you choose, a 
few drops of alinoud extract. 

Cherry and batter pudding is made of one 
pint of milk, two well-beutrn eggs, a lable- 
■poooful of melted butter, one teaspoonfui 
and a half of bakitig powder, u litiie Milt, 
flour enouKh to muko u butter a little thicker 
than for gi-iildle cakes. In tliis batter stir as 
many cunneil, or ilrled, or fi-esh clierries, us 
you choose, or can afford to put in ; steam lor 
three-quarters of an hour in a pudtling ditb 
which can be sent to the table. Eat with 

Scalloped potatoes make, a nice dish for tea. 
Prepare in this proportion: Two cups of 
mashed potatoes, two tuble><pooufuls of 
cream or milk, and one of molted butter; 
salt and penpor to tUKte. Stir tbe potatoes, 
butter and cream together, atlding one raw 
•n. If the|>otatoea seeiu too moist, beat in 
a rew fine bread crumbs. Bake in a hot 
oven for ten minutes, taking can! to have the 
top a rich brown. 

Do not throw away tbe bits of toilet 
■oap which are too small to be uned when 
bathing, or which ure usually put iu the slop 
jar. There in nothing so satislactory to use 
for tbe purpose of cleininie oll-clotli und fin- 
ger marks on puint. Put tliu little pieces In 
hot water and let them dNsolve. The sud-i 
thus made will not attack the VHrnlsh as that 
does which Is made from common, coarse 
■oap. Keep a bowl in some convenient place 
to hold thCHe bits of soap. 

A novelty in tlie way of pie Is made of rice 
flour: Boil one quart of milk, mix with a 
little cold milk one small teacup of rice flour; 
when free from lumps add to the boiling 
milk; add also two tublexpoonfuls of ^ited 
butter; let it boil for tlirce or four minutes, 
then lake from the stove; when cold stir in 
Ave eg^H. beaten IIkI>i> su^ar to nuIi the taste, 
ffavol- WKnTuriTTfii. Iftrkein H qutclr ovTBirr 
roake no upper crust, but a ricli under oue. 
If you cbooHC you can reserve the whites of 
three eggs for a meringue for tbe top of the 

A rery pretty way to cover an old-fashioned 
square stand (and almost every home has at 
least one) is to put over the top smoothly a 
fine piece of scarlet or blue silesia or cam- 
bric: over this put a cover of any pretty open- 
work luce or muslin. Then put a piece of 
tbe giieMlu iibout thirteen inches deep around 
it; cover this also with the lace; the effect Is 
exuelleut, und in this way n useful article of 
furniture is redeemed from positive ugliueKS 
and deformity. If tlie legs ure scratclied or 
marred, a coat or two of varnish will make 
them look all right. 

An appetizing way to serve eggs for break- 
fast is to seal lop them. Boil them hard, chop 
tbem not too fine. Line a pudding dish with 
a h>yer of crumtfs. then a layer of cokl boiled 
bsm, or bits of fried ham chonped tine, then 
a layer of eggs, and ^o on urittl the dish is 
full. MoiMten witli cream and a little butter, 
season with pepper and salt, Ket in a hot oven 
for ten minutes, or longer. Wtaen tliorough- 
ir heated take out and send to the tublu in 
the dish or on slices of buttered toast. Pour 
a little boiling water over the toast after it in 

Black bean soup is made of one quart of 
black beans and three quarts of water. Wash 
the beans, then boil them until they are ten- 
der; take from the stove, turn off the water, 
tbrow it away ; rub the beans ihrou^h a col- 
ander, put them back in the soup kettle, add 
one quart of fresh water and some stock 
made the day before ; add i»epper and salt, 
and any herbs you choose for seasoning. Put 
the herns in a little clean cloth bag. Hard 
boiled eggs cut in thick slices and dropped in 
the soup just before serving, are thought to 
be a welcome addition ; little bulls of chopped 
l>eef, put together with flour and fried brown 
in butter, can be dropped in, in pluce of the 

"L. 8." writes for a recipe for fritters 
from which she may be sure to compound 
light and digestible ones. The following rule 
will give light ones, but about their digesti- 
blenesB I clare not say anything: Take one 
cup of milk, one licaping cup of sided flour, 
one tablespoonfui and a half of sugar, two 
well-beaten eggs, a little salt and a pinch of 
einuanion: llie whites and yolks of the eggs 
should be beaten separately ; fry in verv hot 
lard, dropping the butter in a spoonful at a 
tiose. They will cook quickly ; when the out- 
side is a deep bro.wn you mav take it for 
granted that they are done. You may serve 
tbem with maple sugar, or with ordinary 
pudding sauce, strongly flavored with lemon. 

A common cornstarch blunc mange cun be 
varied agreeably by beating jelly in just lie- 
fore it is poured in tbe mould : To one quart 

of milk allow four tablespoonfuls of corn- 
starch, rub it smooth in a little cold milk, 
then, when the rest of the milk is at the boil- 
ing point, siir it into that when thickened 
enough, which will be In three or four min- 
utes, take from ihe fire, sweeten with pow- 
dered sugar and beat the Jeby In a cupf^ul of 
this quantity. Ilcd raspberry or Cstawba 

Srape jelly imparts a delicious flavor to it. 
erve with cream, or with a suuce made of 
creHm, flour und sugar lieaten to a froth, with 
balf a cup of boiling water added, and a few 
drops of some flavoi iiig extract, which will 
not destroy the Jelly flavor. , 
'Dust will accumulate in closets, will' bift in 
through and under the doors, after one has 
done all she knows bow to prevent it. If a 
woman can afford to have ft regular chest of 
drawers of the exact length of her (Iress 
skirts, she should be counted as one of the 
happy; if not. she can shield- her black 
silk and velvet (Iresses in this way: Take 
two breadths of wide cambric, sew them to- 
fl^ikher, hem nil around Imtli ends, and run in 
strings to draw them together, or pieces of 
elastu: cord. In this slip the dres< skirt. 
Have two loops on the band of tlie skirl, and 
let tbem come through the top of the bag to 
hang it by. Tlie object in having both ends 
open is so that the dress mav be slipped out 
at either end, and also mav bo arranged so 
that It will not wrinkle. There slioulii b<^, a 
loop on the bug also, bv which It mav be left 
hanging In tbe closet after tbe skirt is taken 
out. .

The number of licenses bo far granted Is 
just i^bout a reasonable number for Lowell, 
though we have little hope that It will not be 
enlarged. The number of "common victual- 
lew" bred by ihe license law is something 
wonderful, and can be accounted for only on 
the theory that liquor Is generally looked 
upon as both victuals and drink. 

Bepresentative Morrison wielded Ihe 
Speaker's gavel a couple of hours yesterday 
afternoon, and had an experience which 
does not often full to the lot of a Speaker pro 
tein., in being called upon to rule on a very 
ImporUnt point of order involving the ques- 
tion of courtesy between the two branches. 
♦*Tlio Chub" sus.ained itself with becoming 
dignity, and the ruling was acquiesced In 
cheerfully, although the opponents of the 
Canibrltlge Shawsheen water bill were very 
anxious to have it ruled out. 

The Salvation Army may be a good thing 
when kept in its own place; but it may lea- 
soniibly be doubted whether It was In Us 
own place when, as described In u letter lo 
the Loudon Times, reprinted in Monday's 
Graphic, it sent a detachment, on a recent 
Saturday afternoon at two o'clock, Into a qui- 
et west end London street, and kept up a re- 
vival service until very late, beginning again 
at seven o'clock on Sunday morning to 
preach, shout, sing doggerel hymns, and 
roar out "Ainens" and "llallelujahs," with 
band accompaniments, Including harmoni- 
um, cornet and big diiim^ amid the roaring 
of a vast crowd, "from morn till noon, from 
noon till dewy eve," and past it, until ten 
o'clock, to the alarm of an entire neighbor- 

They are talking of 

making a 

harbor of 

8andy Bay, on the east coast of Cape Ann, 
by running u breakwater out from Pigeon 
Cove to the "Salvages." It would furnish 
safe anchorage, and make u snug harbor and 
refuge for vessels overtaken by storms in 

' that dangerous locality. Very enterprising 
views have been expicrsscd in relation to the 

" future, if the plans of those interested can be 
carried out. There are to be a navy yard, 
and docks, and elevators, and a connection 
with the lloosac tunnel by mcims of an ex- 
tension of the Eastern railroad from Bever- 
ly. The gpvei-ninent is to be petitioned for 
the breakwater. A circular has been sent to 
the governors of the. New England states for 
Ibeir Kignatures, and Governors Bell of N. 
H. and I'lalsted of Maine have signed it. 
The movement Is led in Boston by Col. R. B. 
Forbes. ^^^^^^^^ 

He laughs best who laughs last, and the 
Andover trustees "have the bulge" on the 
board of visitors in the Abbot professorship 
matter, if we may venture on a bit of slang 
lo speaking of so grave a theological subject. 
They wlH not formally fill the chair at pres- 
ent, but have invited Dr. Newman Smyth to 
deliver a series of lectures on theology at the 
aemlnary. Tfobably the Instltatlon will 
manage to survive the shock of such slight 
heresy as Dr. Smyth may evolve, and we 
trust the students will receive no Intellectual 
harm from his lack of precision of state- 
ment. Andover orthodo.xy, however, must 
be trembled for. if Its real bulwarks have 
been reduced to the persons of the two mem- 
ber* ot the board of visitors and Dr. Dexter, 
with the board of trustees, the faculty, the 
Student! and the secular press all given over 
to the bIindn«M of unbelief. 

In taking aceoant of great sales the statis-

The LeKlalature. 

Wednesday morning In the Senate, Messrs. 
Crocker of Suffolk, Stone of Essex, Rock- 
well of Her^shlre, Hasiings of Worcester 
anil Bruee of Middlesex were appointed on 
the special committee lo consider what ac- 
tion the Senate shall take upon the request of 
the House for the return of the papers per- 
taining 10 the Meigs elevated railroad 
scheme. The bill relating lo Worcpster sew- 
erage in Blackstone river was discussed at 
length, but no action was taken; a substitute 
offeietl by Mr. Jennings was ordered to be 
printed. It is a gener;«l bill for the preserva- 
tion of the public health, and providing that 
no statute existing or hereinaller enacted 
shall l>e construed to authorize any city, town, 
corporation or person to create a uuisance 
injurious to the public health; allowing cities 
and towns to take and hold land and water 
rights, and construct such works as may be 
necessary for purifying or treating sewerage 
so as to prevent any nuisance, ami the ques- 
tion whether a nuisance lias been created 
shall be uecldeil, at any time, by the supreme 

In the House ought to pass was reported 
by the finance committee on the bill for an 
agricultural experiment station at Amherst, 
on the resolve for repairs of buildings and a 
drill-house at the Agricultural college at 
Amherst. It was decided lo begin forenoon 
sessions hereafter at 10 o'clock Instead of 11. 

The res«)lve In favor of Priscilla Freeman, 
jiivinK her f500 in full for damages in the 
matter of the lease of Tlsbury Great pond, 
was passed to be engrossed. In the course 
of the debate upon the resolve severe strict- 
ures were made by several members upon 
the commissioners on inland fisheries, aud 
an amendment to the resolve was adopted 
that the $500 shall come out of the appropri- 
ation for the expenses of the commission. 

The House had quite a lengthy debate and 
parliamentarv fight over the question of al- 
lowing Cambridge to take water from Shaw- 
sheen river. Messrs. Kinsley, Wells, McSor- 
ley, Muzzey and Albee of Cambridge and 
Thayer of Worcester all favored the bill al- 
lowing that city to take 8,000,000 gallons 
dally from the river. Messrs. Smith of An- 
dover and Wilson opposed the bill, the for- 
mer making a forcible and eflTective argu- 
ment against taking from that town any part 
of the water of the Shawsheen, which is so 
essential to Its health and prosperity. 

Mr. Cogswell of Salem raised the point of 
order that the measure was not properly 
before the House, a c< mralttee report being 
presented upon a petition of Cambridate for 
SliavN^slieen water when no petition was be- 
fore tiie committee, only a bill referred to 
this legislature from last year. 

Mr. Mfirrisonof Lowell, who was in the 
chair, ruled that as a matter of courtesy be- 
tween the two branches, the sulyecl having 
been nceived bv the Senate, the bill should 
be entertained, this ruling was In direct 
opposition to a ruling niadeby the |»r<sidenr 
of the Senate on the House bill to incorpo- 
rate the Meigs elevated railroad company. 
To this conclusion Mr. Cogswell assented, 
with the remark that he would like to have 
an explanation why one branch of the legis- 
lature should be bo'und by, and the other tree 
from, the observance of viarliamentary cour- 
tesy. After further seatteiiivc debate, the 
House refused to admit the bill by a vole of 
sixtv-four yeas to ninety-five nays. The 
House then 'concurred in reference to the 
next legislature. 

Tlie bill to limit liqtior licenses to one for 
every thousand people was under discussion 
at adjournment.

The great popularity of these colors, both rail-

perience the worthl<-HS character of the so-called 
chemical paints. Masury's Colors are also far 
superior in BEAUTIFUL SHADES to any other 
liquid or paste paint yet offered, the manr imi- 
tators and followers of Mr. Masury being far be- 
hind him in this matter. This is prored beyond

San PRANq|^co, Cal., May 4.— A Lsrds- 
burgdespatcb»!(lkys: It is positively sUted 
that. In the fight, on the 29th ult., between 
the Mexicans under Col. Garcia, and Loco's 
hand of Indians, the latter lost 78 killed and 
all their stock. Loco was killed and 33 In- 
dians wer«' taken priHon(M«. The Mexican 
loss is stated at 27 killed and wounded. This 
information Is Ironi a reliable source, and if 
h, is confirmed may be regarded as tbe death 
blow lo the present Inilian outbreak. A 
careful summnrv shows a total of HI whites 
and Mexicans killed by the Indians the past 
two weeks, 600 bend of stock killed and cap- 
tured, and the destruction of over §76,000 
If orth of properly.

a son of tbe poet, was apoointed administra- 
tor In blace of the late Richard H. Dana,

sures and Interlineations In tbe document, 
and Judge Brooks decided that the erasures 
which occur are lo be connhlercd no part of 
the will and also th«t the interlineations are 
of no effect. This deprives each of the chil- 
dren of tbe testator's brother of a legscy of

brother Samuel, and makes the residue to be 
divided among the testator's children consid-

charges, speaks of abuses in tbe way of ex- 
travagance in the use of funds for tbo build-

soldiers. The bill which goes with tbe re- 
port provides for some very strong reforma, 
and makes an entire sweep of the present

A Case of Rheufsaatlsaa, Dyspepsta and

Mr. Steven$>— . ^ ^ . *. 

I huve suffered aoutely fVoni dyspepsia t»r 

nearly three years, and have besides been sub- 
Jf| the severest pangs of rheumatism, which 
came <.-n at tiie slightest unfavorable change io 
the weather, together wllh weakness ot the kid- 
neys. Tlsese thret tortures oombined made my 
condition one of great distress, disturbed my 
rest, Impaired my appetite, and iuterlered with 
my ability to perform my work. I tried a num- 
ber of reinediex, but derived little If any beuettt. 
About four mouiks ago 1 began to take your Bar- 
Kiiparllla, and can truh suy thkt It has beeu a 
« eat bhsslDg to me. The dyipepsia has been 
completely cured. Before beginning to take the 
medicine I could scarcely eat anything without 
enduring the distressing pains of inalgestlon. 
Now the hearth St food causes me no trouble. I 
eat with relish and have a better appetite than 
before, and feel like a new man. Ihe rheuiiui- 
tisin, also, which cau.ned mo so much agony has 
almost entirely disappeared. Once in a while I 
Ket a slight twinge of it, but nothing like the old 
piilns, and I am conOdeut that th« rheumatism 
will be entirely gttne after another bottle, and 
not to return agidu. The kidney complaint has 
been cured, and thU cauties ine even more satis- 
faction than the cure of both the other troubles. 
Sometimes ufter severe work I suffered Intensely 
trom the disease, but now the hardest labor does 
not affect me in the least. I consider your Sarsa- 
parilla a great boon to all afflicted with dyspep- 
ala, rheumatism or kidney complaint, and cheer- 
fully give my lestimany of its value, hoping that 
It may encourage oi hers to try it.

Adams Is a very fine tcai;her, and has given 
excellent saiisfaciion throughout the term. 
By a vote of the town the >.chool was ex- 
clusively fur lite scholars in the public 
Rcbools, therefore it was niucli harder forthe 
teacher, not htiving the older singers to de- 
pend upon in ditHcull passages. He was 
obliged to ti rill tlie in a good deii more, and 
do the work himself. More good, however, 
has been aceoinplishecl among the young, 
and they have learned to rely upon them- 
selves. Mr. Adams is an ardent lover of mu- 
sic, and gives his whol.' strength to its pur- 
suit, lie has one of the best tenor voices we 
have ever hciird, and hits a pleasant, cheer- 
ful, winning wsy in his school. With these 
qualities he cannot fail, as he has not, to 
make a successful teacher. We hope he may 
be secured here for anolher season.

The following testimonial, we confidently as

tjy any ever given to any remedy. The ven- 
erable lady who gives it truly regards 
Stevens's Sarsauarilla as u medicine which 
lias prolonged her life, and made her clos- 
ing years serene and pt-aceful, having relieved 
her of tlie most agonizing ills which humanity is 
ever culled upon to suffer. The most hkepiical 
reader would be convinced could he heur IVoin her 
own llpji the story of her cure, and listen to her 
Invocation of God's blessing upon the propr etor 
of the medicine wh'cli has brought to li»'r so 
much comfort. A description ot her sufferings 
und the grand result of the use of this saving 
remedy is truly und graphically set forth In the 
foUowiug testimonial : 

Mr. Stevens • — Lowell, Doc. 15, 1881. 

1 am 7« years of age. During thu past five 
or six years 1 have suffered so much from sciatic 
rheumatism and neuralgia that I though*. I 
sliould die, and many times I wished 1 might, 
in order to be free from pain. I laid out a good 
deal of money in medicines, but got little help 
from any of them. 1 had some of the best doctors 
in the city, but they conftssed that my case was 
a peculiar one and they could do notlilng for me. 
For live years catarrh has beeu added to my mlr- 
eries. For five yreeks before taking yournsursa- 
parllla, 1 hud a terrible racking cough. I tried 
some balsam, but It did me no good. 1 couldn*. 
lie down more than fifteen minutes at a time 
without choking up, and I leally felt that 1 
couldn't live more than t*o months. 1 had, be- 
tides all my other troubles, a large bunch on my 
neck, larger than an English walnut, which the 
doctors said could not bt cured. My rest was 
broken, I could do no more work at>out the house, 
and was even scarcely able to walk. Without 
saying a word to any one, because all In the 
house had loxt all faitii in medicines, I managed 
to get to the horse cars and by them to your store 
for a bottle of the tiursaparllla. I bad seen the 
testimeuials In the Courier, and felt that perhaps 
it might help me as well as others. I did not ex 
pect it would make me a new person, but I hoped 
It would relieve me a little. This was Oct. 11. 
1 had Mcarcrly taken the first three doses before I 
felt a change for the better. In three or lour 
nights I was able to sleep without disturbance, 
and my rest was perfect. The first bottle cured 
the buuch on my neck, which has now oumplttely 
disappeared. 1 felt the sciatic rlieuinatism leav- 
ing me. 1 became able to walk withoutcr ouble 
and to work about the bouse. The catarrh 
gradually decreased. I could not begin te tell 
yoti all tlie good the SarsupailUa has done for 
me. As an Instance of the improvement 1 may 
state that I was able to walk from my house, 100 
High street, to your store on .^liddiei-ex streit for 
the second bottle, Nov. Zi. The bargaparilla has 
entirely renewed my system, and I feel as well as 
I did forty y«ars ago. 1 am now perfectly happy. 
The tjarsuparilla has been a great comfort to nie, 
and 1 hope that Uod will bless you torlt. I am 
able to work now, and to enjov lUe as I have not 
done for many long years. I may add that my 
daughter and her husbund have aiso used the 
medicine, and they have found much relief from 
It, as It has improved their appetites und helped 
them lu other ways. Yours gratefu iy,

A Toanff Girl's Eyesight, Almost De» 
stroyed by Scrofula, Restored. 

Stevens s Sarsaparilla is not recommended as a 
cure for blindness, but In the following cuse It 
restored eyi sight to a girl who for weeks was 
ujuble to see, her eyes being completely dosed 
by scrofulous sores: 

Mr. Stevetifi— 

My daughter Grade, 14 years old, has from birth 
been troubled with a scrolnlous sffeotion which 
■eemed to centre In her ey.?s. These have alwavs 
been weak and sore, und within a few months 
have caured her great annoyance. A few weeks 
since we were obliged to take lier from school, 
they became so iuflamed, and in a short time she 
was totally unable to see, as much so a^ if she 
was blind. We were In great dlsrcss. as physi- 
cians and medicines seemed unable to elfect a cure. 
We had trle^ Hood's Sarsaparilla, but it failed to 
help. Finally we were Induced to try Htevens's 
Sarsaparilla. The Hrbt bottle made a wonderful 
change. Ihe eyelids gradually reopened, the 
■orem ss pas>ed u way, the desire to rub the eyes 
was diminished, and by the time tiie first bottle 
was exhausted Urcie could ^w quite well and use 
her eyes without pain. We continued the medi- 
cine, snd the benetit steadily progressed, until 
we now look forwHrd with conHdeiice to an en- 
tire cure. My husband and myself have been 
troubled with dys^epiia and alow condition* of 
the blood, and by taking of the med dne have 
gained ii|Aellte und lost Indigestion. We are all 
*ruly griOMul for what It has done in our lamlly, 
and wlUlBgly add our testimony to that already 
dven you. Mas. Likculm M. Fiklu,

The probate court this week received the

Wellington of Ashby, and John Mustersou 
and Kdwin Riley of Lowell, and issued let-

An Kllat Chureh Affair. 
About sixty of Iho Eliot cliunOi congrega- 
tion, accompanied l>y 1 lie Rev. Dr. Greene, 
pastor of the church, paid u visit last even- 
ing to Mr. and >lrs. Kicliard II. Clinmber-

"trom Wlnc!je)4efT>yTpecTariiiKfiie, returning 
at 11.10 in season to connect with the theatre 
traiu from Boston. They carried rcfiesli- 
meiita, and u supper table was spread on 
their arrival, to which Kiiot church Justice 
was done. The eveninjt passed In that Inde- 
seribable way which Is Kenera Iy summed up 
lo the term "so<ial converNalion," liie older 
persons congratulating Ihe host and hostess 
on their pleasant liome and Huriouudings,and 
the younger ones Indulging In games and 
much hilarity, while the mldtUe-aged did a 
little of both. It would be hard to find a 
livelier parly than occupied the cars on the 
way borne, the mad merriment being led by 
one of our "Stirling" mnnufacturerH. No 
material damage was done, however, but the 
oouductor was a good deal relieved when lie 
finally got rid of most of the party at the 
Middlesex street station.

]|»aia for Younff "Women and Children. 
Following is Matron Whlttier's rei»oil for 
April : Since the first of April there have 
been 88 persons in our lamlly, 15 adults and 
28 children. Lodging and meals were pro- 
vided for 8 for two davs, and meals given to 
one person 8 days. There have been 100 
calls, and employment found for 15 persons. 
Of this number 3 were strangers In the place. 
Three adults and 4 children have required 
mcdicnl treatment, and all have been attend- 
ed by Dr. Warner. One death has occurred, 
that of an Infant months old. 

A notice was published the first of the 
month asking for asslstaiice and donations of 
clothing. Thecal! was promptly und gencr- 
oualv responded to by the followiog persons : 
Mrs: F. F. Battles, Mrs. D. Richardson, 
Mrs. Charles A. Stott, Mrs. William Brig- 
liam, Mrs. Brudfonl Bi.nlelt, M<«. W. Hick-

Wm. Ward, Mrs. A. L. Johnson, Mrs. E. 
L. Williams, Mr. VV. Biigham, und Mr. F. 
D. Munn. ,, 

The largest donations for this monlh were 
sent by the Wiiiimantic Linen Thread cotn- 
pany and Mr. A. G. Cumnock. The chil- 
dren's table has lor some time pa.« been sup- 
8 lied l)y Mr. A.B.French imd Mr. J. t. 
uckly. Clothing lor the children from the 
Kirk street society. 

. The Bctall Bf arket. 
A considerable qunntitv of gooTiiewT)ut- 
ter is being received in tlie market, and prices 
have a downward tendency. A continued 
warm season will render tha prices still more 
■ aatlsfsctoiy to consumers. The arrivals of 
butler in the BOhtOn market have thus far 
this vear been considerably less than for the 
<»rresponding time last year. Good cheeae 
Is becoming scarce, and has an upward 
tendency. Beef has taken anotlier rise In 
the mariet, and dcBlers are not ""x'ou" /" 
aell ^eh nV the ' ainlort unparalleled high 
prices now obtained. Early vegetables con- 
Siue to fcbowi decline, and dandeJ on *nd 
SDlnach gn ens, lettuce, Bermuda onions and 
oEber vegetable* lire queted at a roasonnble 
price. Green peas, cucumbers, »Mid other 
earitvegetables are arriving In cohaliI*rabl«

ii any higher than at tlic corresponding lime 
iMt Tiai*. Some very fine BAnpuda IipUtoel 
Sfthlsyear's growth are shown at different 
markets, and arc sold at fl per peck. 

Eggs are becoming more plenty, ine 
market Is well suppled with maple sugar, 
•nd the figures for it are probably as low as 
they will be any time this season. 

In the line of fruit l)ana«Bs are coming to 
the market in considerable quantities, and 
are line aiid cheap. Dealers liavc never be- 
fore showta as flife a stock at this Ume of the 
»etr Milt present. Oranges uio becoming 
iearee and higlier. but lemons are of good 
■Auallty and abundant. There are some ex- 
Mllent strawberries In the m-Sf ' M 'rom

There was a good attendance of members 
at the HUHual meeting of the Old Residents' 
Historical association at one ol the parlors of 
the American house, laat evening. Dr. John 
O. (jlreen, the pie^-ldent, occupied the chair, 
and Alfred Gllman was secretary. The 
president read the following annual address: 


The aims of our associaiion are so simple, 
its operations so unostentatious, and lU aym- 
pathiea naiurally so much closer to the older, 
or even the oldest of our associates, that tlie 
return of our anniversary calls for simple 
facts. The 181 1» year of Iho association closes 
with the following results:

Tlie following contributions have been read 
at the meetings: By Charles Cowley, "The 
Place of Port Royal in History ;" by Euhraim 
Brown, "The Early Manufacture of Glass 
in this neighborhood and New llHinpsiiire;" 
bv Chas. Cowley, "Sixty Tears Since the

erlv, "The Za-lock Rogers Family." 

On Jan. 1, 1882, was published No. 2, Vol. 
II., of our conlributious. No previous 
number has evoked more grateful apprecia- 
tion and acknowledgments from abroad; the 
remarkable rise and rapid growth of our city 
perhaps attract to us unusual curiosity and 
render our annals more Interesting to our 
neighbors. Nor need we wonder at the In- 
diflnlrence of the younger part of our commu- 
nity, with the exception, perhaps, of a few 
wiio have a taste for antiquarian pursuits, 
and evcu to tiiese the history of our sixty 
years as a citv is bulafracllon of thetwohun- 
tlred and fifty yearsof our country and a very 
small fracllon ofthe centuries long past. 

Contrasted with the older cities of our 
commonwealth, who fails to see In our 
straight and wide streets and broad side- 
walks, the wise liberality and sagacity of the 
foundersof our city, while every year adds 
to the marvellous extension of our limits, tho 
value of the steady and wise policy of the 
administration of our great corporations and 
thedeHlrahicnessof a conserviuive and or- 
der-loving tenure of our city government. 

The printer's art Is, after all, the great con- 
servator and transmitter of hislorv. The 
Endlcolt stone of granite, und its deep-cut 
inscription, at the end ot 260 years was In 
great danger of total decay and obliteration, 
but In the prinU'i-'s page, in New Hampshire 
annals, in multiplied and wide-scattered vol- 
umes. Its memory was safe. By this art we 
have, with some success, preserved the mem- 
ory of some of our leading men. There yet 
remain many equally worthy whom we 
have hitherto failed to notice, notalilv among 
tiiem the names of Moody and Worthen. 
Nor should we overiook or underestimate 
the social element in our organization, en- 
gendered by the sympathy of individual la- 
bors, privations and self-sncrifices, when we 
were few, and all on one level with similar 
aims and ambitions. 

As year by year in Increasing numbers one 
and another is called from earthly la- 
bors, we are forcibly reminded thut tho des- 
tiny of the association must soon pass into 
other, we doubt not abler, hands. 

An amendment to the rules was adopted 
providing that any person interested in the 
affairs ofthe association may be made a cor^ 
responding member by a Vote of the execu- 
tive committee. . ,^ , «n 
The report of the treasurer, Alfred Gll- 
man, showed that the balance on hand May 
Ist, 1881. was $.792.65: receipts during the 
year. $143.75; exiiendlturc, $205.28: money 
bn hand, In savings bank, $488.18; other 
money on band, $48.04. On motion of the 
secretary it was voted that the executive 
committee select the future places of meet- 

ill ST 

The following ofl^ccrs, constituting the old 
hoard, were chosen for the ensuing year : 
President, Dr. John O. Green; vice presi- 
dent, Jefferson Bancroft; secretary and treas- 
urer. Alfred Oilman; executive committee,

The secreury read an entertaining sketch 
prepared by James K. Fellows of the late 
Thomas Ordway, a brother of Henry M. 
Ordway of this city, and who was the se^ 
on.l citv clerk of Lowell, serving from 1838 
to 1863'incluslvc. He was born and educated 
HtAmesbury. As city clerk he introduced 
the system of recording the births and deaths 
In the city. In early life lie was engaged lii 
mercantile life in different leading cities of 
the country, and was afterward a teacher at 
different localities before commencing his 
duties as city clerk. Mr. Ordway was a 
member of tho first common council, and 
one ofthe original members of the Unitarian 
church of I his city. A letter was read from 
city clerk McPhetres by Mr. f «»llowi» lesilfy- 
iiig to the heatrttoss sod accuracy wfth which 
Mr. Ordway kept his records. In closing the 
puper a high eulogy was pronounced upon the 
subject of the sketch. 

Alfred Gllman, the aecretarv. read a paper 
DroiHUred with great care and labor, givlag a 
fulliketctf oirtbe history of the newspaper 
press of Lowell. The paper was quite 
leftgthy, and will be published in ^ the pam-

paper and Its publishers, Interweaving Inter- 
esting reminiscences hi connection with 

Mr. Gllman said, In closing, thotthe paper, 
lengthy as It was, might have been much 
more extended In pleasant reminiscences of 
the newspapers of the past. In the future, 
some person, refreshed and Inspired by the 
dales aad facts now presented, may well de-

Money is the anlversal neeesiity, and none bat

Abram Ellsworth, ai Port Bwea, Ulster eoanty, 
N.Y.f had rcalUed tbU truth. Uls disease la- 
volved the whole of bis thigh-boaa, and the eaf- 
faring man looked forward, not without apparent 
reason, to death as his only deliverer. His tkmlly 
physician refbsed to amputate the limb— assert- 
ing that the operation would kill the patient on 
the spot. Dr. Davia Kennedy, ot Bond9ut, N. 
Y., who was ooBSBlted, held a different opinion, 
and Anunftated the limb. The Doctor then ad- 
mlnUlered Ireely hir great Blood 8pecl«e. FA- 
VOR 1145 UEMEDY, to afford tone and strength 
to the system, prevent the return of the disease, 
and Mr. Ellsworth remslns to this dsy In the

the offspring of foul blood, and Kennedy's FA-

Concert mt Appleton Street Church. 

Nearly four hundred were present al the 
concert la>t night in the Presbyterian church, 
gotten up by Ihe Kev. Roliert Court, as the 
concluding part of a series of entertainments, 
the proceeds of which are to be applied lo 
the church debt. Mr. Court presided and in- 
troduced the artists peribrming. Vocal se- 
lections were given by Messrs. Holt and Mar- 
tin, Misses E<lilh Pierce, Grace D. Paul, L. 
A. Martin and Durning. The contralto so- 
los by Miss Martin were very tustefullv ex'-- 
cuted. Miss Alice M. Esly seemed to be the 
reigning favorite ol the evening. Her I'en- 
dering of The Daisy and Esmeralda showed 
distinctness of enunciation, clearness of 
tone, niiirkediy so in sosteunto passages, 
with flexibility and powers of execution 
which give promise of greater excellence for 
this rising young soprano, and which won 
lor her most enthusiastic encores. For her 
recalls she gave a verse of Twickenham 
Ferry and The Bailiffof Islington's Daugliler. 
Miss Amy Maker read Longfellow's King 
Koltert of Sicily with a fine, intelligent ap- 
preciation of the poetry and that practised 
ahilily which gives elfest to what she so well 
understands and feels. Her humorous se- 
lections were irresistibly amusing — Iter 
dialect selection eliciting a unanimous 
encore. In responding to which she 
gave her imitative echoes of 
Street Cries. Miss Lizzie Macarlhur 
gave Robin Adair with variations as a piano 
Molo. and secured the ear and heart of the 
audience, who insisted on her reappearance. 
For so young an artist Miss Macarlhur ex- 
hibits a tirmness and accuracy of touch, an 
exactness of lime and a delicacy of taste that 
give augury of her more than ordinary fu- 
ture excellence. Messrs. Hatch and Barrett 
gave with great acceptance several pieces on 
the guitar and harmonica, and received an 
encore. Mr. Rogers recited a humorous piece 
failed Jack and tl^ Jew. Mrs. Hunt, the 
organist of the church, played Fanfare on 
the or^an as a prelude and proved a skilful 
accompanist. The whole affair was very 
enJo> able from the great variety in the pro- 

Smith's Model Fruit Store. 

To obtain a flrst-class article, especially lb 
fruit and confectionery, is a matter of con- 
hiderable difficulty, yet there are dealers in 
all cllies of any consequence, whose sole aim 
is lo keep only what are known as fresh, 
whole>omc, and substantial good-i, and for 
the bcDclit of those of our readers who are 
not already aware of the fact, we might say 
that one of the most popular and reliable es- 
tablishments or lids kind in this section of 
the state, is that of F. W. Smith, whieb is lo- 
cated at 47 Merrimack street. Mr. Smith 
Is both n wholesale and retail dealer 
in pure confectionery and foreign and 
domestic fruit of all kinds, his goods in 
this direction being noted for their 
ff rst-claMs qualities, while bis prices are as 
moderate and reasonable as those of any sim- 
ilar concern in the state. He takes a pride 
in the good name his establishment holds 
throughout this vicinity, as a place where 
fruit and confectionery can l>e obtained lliat 
will give satisfaction in every Instance. Mr. 
Smith transacts a large business, and one 
Ihat is constantly increasing, which he has 
built up solely on the good merits of the arti- 
cles he furnlsbet to bis customers, and as a 
first-tdass store of its kind we heartily com- 
mend It to the favorable attention of our 
readers.— [Business Houses of Lowell.

OB8SION. (Verses 14-30.) 

1. CircutMtanceM of fhtt Case. a. Je- 
sus had left the region near the Galilean lake, 
probably daperuaum, some time shortly aRer 
tbe Passover season, In the beginning of the 
third year of HU public ministry. 6. He 
bad come Into the borders of Tyre and SIdon. 
A learned dUpdie there is among the com- 
mentators whether He was actually within 
or Just without those borders. For the for- 
mer It is urged that in »be more correct and 
more ancient copies It Is said that be after- 
ward went through SIdon, and hence must 
have been in Phoenicia to reach SIdon. For 
the Utter view it U urged that In Matthew It 
it aald tbe woman "came out from those 
bor<ler«," hence across the borders to where 
Jesus was on the Gidllean side. It U easy 
lecondllng these vldws: at first JesuM 
Btopped on the Jewish side, close to the 
boundary line, In the house of some Hebrew 
host, and while He was there the woman 
came to Him; but afterward He went 
through PhoBnlcia to SIdon, and thence, as 
we have described already, back to the Sea 
of Galileo, c. He was there "not wUhIng It 
tobe known," deMliing strict privacy, and, 
therefore, Instead of doinz what He always 
Is aald to have done in Galilean cities— teach 
the people— He enters into a private house. 
Why did He not desire to bo recognized as 
iheNaznrene prophet and wonder-worker? 
His primary purpose W4is privacy and the 
peace that there is in privacy. The man Je- 
lus did not always fall back on the prescient 
power that dwelt within Him. Hence there 
IT no need of supposing that He went pur- 

posoly to meet the Syro-Phcenicltn woman ; | but surely not Invmn 
"^thatcame In course; but the human con- • -• -■^• 
BolouHness in Christ could not forecast It. 
Nor was It to escape the plots of the Jews, 
for HU time was not nigh come. But ll must 
have given great pain to the soul of Jesus to 
have on His soul the necessity of exposinK 
the hypocrisy of tbe Pharisees, and the task 
of doing It would agitate His extremely sen- 
sitive sSil. Hence His desire to gain a quiet 
retreat where, communing with God, with 
nature, and the loving though ignorant 
Twelve, He migbl be calmed and refreshed 
with the aweet rest and repose, d. His 
purpose was apparently frustrated: "He 
ioubl not be hid." Into Phflsnlcis, even near 
to old Tyre and SIdon, had the fame of Je- 
aus gone. "Tyre and SIdon— great Phooni- 
clan cities that bad been conspicuous forceu-

• Hence Isaiah calls Tyro "the daughter of

SIdon as "the well-inhabited Sldnn." Tyre 
eclipsed Sidon for m.ignlflcence and power. 
It was "the stroiiK city" in the days of Josh- 
ua. (xlx.29.) Phoinicla excelled in letters,

1. Where, o. Jeans left the place 
where He cured the woman's child, passed 
through Phoenicia, by way of Sidon. thence 
east by south toward GaulonltU, and ibence 
to DecapolU, as we have alreadv aald. Dr. 
Woolsey says that He went through "the 
SldonUn territory," but Meyer says SIdon 
the sllenti aever means the region but onl v the city so 
?^- named, b. Who knows but the purpose 
of this visit was silently to prepare them tor 
the commission He gave them In less than a 
year afterward to "teach all nations," to a 
Hebrew ear meaning "all the Gentllea.'' 
They gazed, as they passed, on 1 yre witn 
lu magnificence and wealth, Ite gorgeous 
rites of an impure idolatry, on SarepU with 
ill, memories of Elijah's flight and the wid- 
ow's barrel and cruse, on Sidon in ite glory, 
on tbe broad, blue Mediterranean and the 
sbipa bound for every known clime— to 
Greece, Rome and Spain, even to the dis- 
tant islands of Britain and Htbemla. All 
nations would have aflor all thU a fuller 
meaning to their provincial minds. Decape- 
11s, the region of ten cities as the name signi- 
fies, Farrar says stretebed on the east of the 
Jordan ft-om near Damascus on the north to 
the brook Jabbok on the south. ThU dU- 
irlct was mostly occupied by Gentiles. 
Here, too, was an antlolpstlon of His work 
among the Gentiles after HU ascension by 
what, In Cardinal Manning's words, may be 
called "tbe temporal mission of the Holy 
Ghost," Chrlsl's true vicar on earth. Here 
He cured the man who was domb. 

2. The Patient and His Frtends. a. This 
man had some person^* to take kindly interest 
in bim ; be, poor man, could not nee or hear 
of Jesus; but hU hearing friends learned 
where Jeaus waa and brooght him to the 
Healer, b. They betought Christ to heal 
their frUnd by laying on him the healing 
hand which they had seen with a touch heal- 
ing other cases of phylcal distress, c. ihe 
patient, too, waa eloquent In his silence. 
Deaf to all voices, with no voice of his own, 
he appealed to the pity in the heart of Christ ; 
It surely not in.vsin. There Is a dispute 
whether this man was a de»^niute or only a 
stammerer. Those who contend, like some 
modem controversialists, that the strict 
meaning of a word In classic Greek " 'i* 
only meaning In the New Testament, will be 
obliged to own that he was only a 8iHmmer>- 
er; but If Jewish uSage is to be taken Inta 
uccount, the man could not speak at all. lue 
Greek word mogitalon means hardly speak- 
ing, but the Jews wbo translated tbe Septua- 
ginl use It for the Hebrew word meaning 
dumb; and, therefore, IbU U Iho •«»«?««>''>« 
here, lor New Testament Greek is like thta 
of the Septuugiut. Slier, Dr. WooUey, Mao- 
lenr, Bloomtleld, Morlson, Farrar, Canon 
Cook, El llcott, are all against the view we 
have taken; but llie Septuagint, tbe Vulgate, 
Aqulla, Symmuchus, De Dleu, Meyer» Bp-* 
nestl, Ewald, Riddle, Weiss, Liddell and 
Scott give it the sense of dumb, speechless, 
which seems to be the sense given to the 
word by Qrcek-speaking Jews. Dumb 
though he was his appeal had influence with 
Jesus; tbe man himself was tbe best plea 

foriaercy. . ^ , . ,. 

8. The Stem of the Oure. a. Jesus look 
bim aside privately, that the man himself 
might be entirely composed and undisturbed, 
and so fix bU whole attention on bis Healer. 
b. Tbe manner of the cure was, as Meyer 
says, en rapport. Into lull sympathT, with 
the Physician, ao that the man would never 
think of hU cure without thinking of Him 
who performed that cure; and, alnoe the ap- 
parent means were In tbemaelvea of no pow- 
er to eflect the cure, t1}e n^an would be oom- 
pelled to believe that Christ's power had 
done all. 1. By putting the fingers In the 
man's ears and moUtonlog hU tongue with 
saliva, OhrUt IntlBiates that He ean open the 
closed eara and m4ke tbeftlffioiifue flexible. 
It was the only way that He laould tell the 
man this. S. Tbe look to heaven meant that 
the power to heal oanM from God; and while 
It was Christ's aign of ptayar to tba Fatbtr it 

nanTbow sad 4a tbia 9a«^aUla« bow ipMh

toocaea 10 apeak and uaa tbOM U Mvlla; 
eurw. lie,, utter •)thF worda! TMa alffb 
thus la our great and nobia broCbai*a atgn of 
sympathy with our aorrowi'Mid aOThrlnn 
and of ffls grief for the aina .tbat OMM M 
pala and woe. 4. The word Bpbpbatha is 
an Aramean form of the Hebrew \fonl qtoan- 
lug be thou open, from pal««*. a vary eon* 
mon verb. ThU ward batraya Petor*a praa- 
enoe at the scene, e. The eteoto were in- 
stantaneous. The man's aara wafa un- 
alopped ; he apake plainly, oorreatly. 

^^ie Charge, a. Jeau« fwbada them 
to speak of tbe miracle. WhyF 1. It»|Kbt 
be to prevent tbe man firom iMbblIng of U In- 
stead of quUtly thanking God. 1. U nlf^t 
be that lis did not wish to brinf HIniMlf 
promlnentlv In notice In that ragtoa. 6. But 
they did not keep It qutet, but seemed more 
eagerly to publUh it everywliera afOOBd. «. 
The reault waa aatonUhment at the wonder 
and praise to the atonder-worker. !• They 
approve the means employed: Ha dooUi all 
tidnga well. Tbe cbureh of Kona^boiiM by 
tbe fetter of the history , uses saliva In oartaln 
ceremonies In Imitation of Jeaus, whUsb oth- 
er churches have not followe<l. S. They in- 
timate that the man was really a deaf-tniute : 
He maketh both tbe tieaf to bear, and the 
dumb (alaloua, speechless one^ to apeak. 
He doeth all things well I The soul lie aavaa 
aavs so; the whole of HU mlMlon taatlflaa to 
thU elfcot; It will be the loud acclaim at 
Judgment, and salnU will aing U la heaven

Tbe aecoodary queatlon raited is an iatflr> 
eating one, and we cannot belp tblnkinx that 
tbe decision that it la perfoaily in order to 
novB to postpone action oo a subject, pend- 
ing a question of ordert is not only In accord- 
ance with tbe practice of botb brancbea of 
tbe legislature, but Is based on a sound par- 
liamentary principle. It il true tbat nothing 
further cart be done on that subject till tbe 
question of order U decided. But It Is often 
nece-Bury to u proper decision by tbe preaid- 
log officer, as weii as to an Intelligenl action 
of tbe lueraberHOf tbe body, sbould an ap- 
peal be taken, to bave tiive to examine tbe 
question at leisure. Curbing distinctly rec- 
ognizes such postponetueut pending an ap- 
peal, and tbe rule muat equally apply to tbe 
first stage of a question of order before tbe 
decision is made on wbicb an appeal is taken. 
Tbe promptness of tbe decision ioaisted on in 
all the books only means tbat It must be 
made before any further action can bo bad on 
tbe measure. Ajul in point of fact it Is very 
rare-ibat u.formsi ruling is made in eitber 
brancii of tbe Massacbusetts legislature^, with- 
out a longer or shorter postponement of tbe 
matter on wbicb tbe point Is raised. 

Mr. Allen it a ready presiding officer, and 
putt bis questions clearly and inteliigibly ; 
and lo bave carried tbe House through so ex- 
citing a struggle (tor there was really a good 
deal of feeling existing) in to crediubie a 
manner, Indicatet tbat Lowell might furnish
