The International Review for July
opens with an article on 'Russian Uni
versities' that is specially readable at
present, while Nihilism in so rampant.
George Elliot' is a fitting tribute to
that lady as a reformer. 'The Man on
Horsbaek in the United States' is an
argument in favor of tree inititntions.
A. short biography of 'George Sand,'
and an aooonnt of the'Khedive's Coup
d'Etat' are followed by a critique on
'Channing, as a Philosopher and The
ologian.' The n amber closes with
some reviews of recent publications.

The closing exercises of Misses Burr &
James' Female School, which have been
in progress during the the past two days,
will be concluded this evenius. Th
parents and many of the friends of the
young lady pupils were present at the
school house yesterday afternoon when
the final recitations aud reading of com
positions were had and there were exercises
in calisthenics. Those who were present
were wtll pleased with the proficiency
exhibited, the display in the Kindergarten
department having been especially pleas
ing and attractive.
The exercises will close this evening
when there will be au exhibition of vocal
and instrumental music, object teaching
and calistheuie exercises and when the
prizes to the pupils will be awarded in
Runaway and Smash -Up.
Ab ut 10 o'clock this morning, a horse
attached to a dray, standing on the wharl
at the foot of Chestnut street, became
possessed with the idea thr.t a little active
exercise would be beneficial, and as be
was not tied, and as no driver was present,
he laid his ears back and gave a switch
of his tail aud started off at a run, aiming
apparently for the entrance to J. W.
Alderman's store. After reaching ti t
sidewalk, having run against another
dray and a telegraph pole on his passage,
he changed his ccurse and ran alcn
the sidewalk, demolishing four chairs
that were on the curbstone for
the convenience of loungers. and
finally stopped, very appr priately,
at W. P. O dham's meal and leed store
We have heard of mm who could not
pass a barroom without stopping, but this
is the first instance that has come to our
knowl dge oi a runaway horse stopping
voluntarily at a feed store.
There is a city ordinance forbidding
the leaving of horses untied, and a pen
alty often dollars for its violation, and,
aa the horse in question has run away on
several previous occasions, endangering
life, limb and property, we think it a
good time to put the ordinance in force

The Flurry In Stocks"
Always means an opportunity for some
shrewd and lively operator to make a
handsome profit. Messrs Lawrence & Co. ,
Bankers, N. Y., have established the
combination system for operating in
stocks, 6o that capital in any amount from
$5 to 50 000 can be used profitably at
any time that may suit the customer. By
pooling the orders of thousands of patrons
into one immense sum, and operating
them as a mighty whole, under the most
experienced skill, vast profits are made,
which oould be gained iu no other way.
These are divided pro rata among share
holders mor thly. An investment of
$10 returns $50, or 5 per cent ou the
stock, $100 pays $950, and so on, ac
cording to the market. A St. Louis
patron made wver three hundred per cent,
on an investment in October by the com
bination method. Messrs. Lawrence &
Co.'s new circular (mai'ed free) "has
two unerring rules for success" and full
information, so that any one can operate
with profit. Stocks and bonds wanted.
Government bonds supplied. Apply to
