Port Ji:ryis, August 1. The
St. John circuit of temperance
ram pa was opeiunl here on Tuesday
last in the Methodist church. The
tirst speaker was cx (iovernor John
P. Sr. John, of Kansas, the Prohi
bitionist nominee for President.
In the afternoon he addre--i d a
large audience, which had as
-cmbled m a heavy ram storm, on
the evils of licensing and the en
ormity of the crimes iln.t had
cursed our nation through the
bonoi tiatlir. In flu- evening a
large audit nee as-eu, bl, d. and ( ! v.
St. John spoke ol the political
as pee t ol I he i ile-t ion . ,i ii d
arraigned the IJepubl iea n p.n t tor
the misrule that has characterized
its work for the past twenty ( a;s.
e quote his wm ds:
T have been a Kepiiolic.in all
my life no to the 1th ol last moinb.
but I hav e nevei lost an opportunity
to say or do a good deed for this
great cause ot Prohibition. When
the Republican patty met at
Chicago to select candidates for
President and Vice-President last
month, t hey were w aited upon by
the Women's Christian Temperance
I'nion, a band of brave women,
having at heart the advancement
of the race, and the Kepuhl iean
party tailed to take any recognition
ol them. The day after the nomi
nations were made I told my wile I
would never again vote the Repub
lican ticket, and all my exertions
would In tor this grand cause ot
Prohibition. Neither party dared
to take up this great, issue lor tear
of losing t he whisky vote. Shame,
shame mi our political parties. I
used to lay awake nights, when I
lived in t he border towns and w as a
Republican, hating Democrats and
Democratic principles. Since the
4th of last month 1 have made up
my mind that Republican whisky is'
as bad as Democratic whisky, if
not wors-rr-The Republican party j
is false to all the teachings ad
vanced and inculcated when that
grand old party went into pow er.
''One sixth ol our people govern .
the other five sixths. If this one
sixth be corrupt and intemperate,
the five sixths will not be long in
getting so too. After the Yorktown
celebration a bill was sent in by
the Republicans for sb.Oi'O for
wines and whisky s used on that
occasion. At the Star route trial
one of trie jurors came into the
court rixim and fell senseless at the
feet of the judge, grossly intoxi
cated. Rut this is not all: under
RepMblican misrule wo have been
insulted and mortified tiy the
drunken corteges that accompanied
the remains of our marty red Gar
field to their last resting place."
Gov. St' John was listened to
with the greatest respect, and he
has created a furor here that will be
felt in the coming election. The
Daily I'nion Republican), edited
by Postmaster St. John, comes out
with a communication calling the
Prohibition meetings "sideshows
for the Democracy ." The meetings
each day are being attended by in
creasing numbers, and much en
thusiasm is being manifested.

Citil Service iReforni.
The civil service reformers have
made very gratifying progress in
impressing their ideas upon the
mind of the average citizen, and in
. spite of occasional hindrances the
siio- iiitial success of the reform
may be taken as assured. It would
1;e too soon, however, to declare
th it the oilioial intelligence has as
yet passed out of the stage of tran
sition from the old to the new prin
ciple. Politicians long conspicuous
f' r their disregard of, if not hostil
ity to. the reform movement are
now indeed hmd in their professions
ot devotion to reform principles,
bat that of course is owing to the
necessity ol' having their profes
sions correspond with the dominant
tone of public opinion, at whatever
risk of inconsistency. It cannot be
denied that some leccnt federal ap
poiutrnents indicate a survival of
the old principle in practice, to an
extent indeed that must be einbar
iassing to conservative officials
anxious to bring about a purifica
tion of the public administration.
One ot these appointments recalls
an amusing incident of four years
ago. A delegate from rthe south
west amused the spectators and
embarrassed the delegates at the
convention that nominated the late
President by asking: "What are
we here for if not for the offices'!''
The faith of this true believer in the
theory of Marcy has at length been
justified by his nomination for a
substantial post in the internal
le- etiue service. It is clear that
among the qualifications for public
oilice an enthusiastic devotion to
the theory of the reformers is by
no means regarded as essential.

Itailwiiv Statistics for iss3.
1 he following is taken from ad-'
vauee sheets of "Poor's Railroad
Manual" for ls.S:5:
The year's statement is an abridg
ment of the much more extended
one. embracing in detail all the!
railroads of the country. It shows I
that since ltsSO, a period of three
years, there have been opened in
the Cnited States 28.405 miles of1
railroad, and that 0,091 miles were
opened the past year up to the,
close of the fiscal years of the sev-1
eral companies. The increase of
share capital and indebtedness of
all the companies for the three
years ending December 31, 1883,
was 2, 093, 433. 054, the cost of the
new mileage as represented by
share capital and debt being about
70,000 per mile. The increase iu
the three years of the funded debts
of all the'eompauies was 924,100,-'
440: of their floating debts, 1C9,-1
880,400; of the two, ? 1, 094,045,840. !
It is not probable that the cost of.
the mileage constructed in the
three years equalled the increase of
funded and tloating debts by at
least the sum of 200, 000,000. 'The
cost of the mileage constructed
certainly did not exceed ".30,000 to
the mile. The whole increase ol ,
the share capital, 999, 387.208, and.
a portion of the funded debt was in
excess of cost of construction. It
will be seen by a statement hereto i
annexed thatstocks and bonds to
the amount of 8530432,000 were
listed at the New York Stock Ex
change iu 1883. The amount of
stocks and bonds listed was equiv
alent to about $80,000 per mile of
new road built during the year. A
considerrble amount, however, of
the securities listed was on account
of old works.
Henry 'lay's Fortune.
Hen. Policy Poore says in his
reminiscences: '-Henry Clay was
announced insolvent by his Ken
tucky opponents in 1842, aud they
paraded some mortgages on his
property as evidence ot his inabil
ity to pay his debts. In a letter to
a friend, denying this calumny, Mr.
Clay said: -I am uot free, abso
lutely, from debt. I am not rich. 1
never coveted riches. But my es
tate would, even now. be estimated
at not much less than 100,000.
Whatever it may be worth, it is a
gratification to me to know that it
is the product of my own honest
labor, no pai t of it being hereditary :
except one slave, who would oblige :
me very much if he would accept1
his freedom. It is sti llicien f, after,
paving all my debts, to leave my
laiinly above want if 1 should be
separated tioui them. It is a mat
ter also of consolation to me to
know this wanton exposure of my
private affairs can do me no pe
can. ,,ry prejudice. My lew creditor-
vill not allow thk-ir confidence

my nabors smiled at the p,aae, t
as they went along the road. '1 bat
wheat began to -tool cai and spi e:a ;
and occupy the ground and it u:..;',.'
I big long heads w ith f :ir and six
grains to the mash and threshed
I out 90 bushels and I sold it on the
spot at one dollar a bushel when
' good wheat, was biitiging only P0
This wiieat was kilhd oat be
cause, it was not acclimated, li
would have stood any ordinaiy
wiuter. The reason I know this to
be so is that I sowed another ii ve
neres close by in the same kind ot
wheat that came from Lincoln three
years ago and was'the same variely
and raised by the same man. That
wheat was not killed or hurt, for it
was acclimated. Rut that didn
thresh but twenty bushels to the
acre and the result satisfies me that
we sow too much grain on the hind.
My judgment is aud my nabors
confirm it that halt a peck to the
acre would have put upon the tirst
five acres as many plants as were
alive after the killingout. I believe
that a half bushel to the acre wiil
make more wheat and better wheat
than a bushel. Some of my nabors
say that if that five acres had not
been killed it would have made do
or 40 bushels to the acre, but they
are mistaken. It would have made
25 I think, and may be more, but
not much more for it would have
made shorter heads and smaller
grain. 1 had twenty-eight acres in
wheat and made 505 bushels, with
which result I am coDtent. and my
next point is that I believe it can
be done every year and the who a
crop made as ceitain as the c -:,;
crop and as certain as the wheat
crop of the northwest. One of nr.
nabors said he would make a boat
125 bushels on 50 act' - ,n good
laud and that he put in half of it
with a Thomas -iiii oi hing hai '"
and half with a brush. We!', th..:

Now a few remarks alio;:' a h-.
Luck is a good thing and I ba r
powerful good luck this year :' h
my small graiu, but I flatter my s '.:
that I am not altogether a tci i i
luck. Year before last I got t ,
bushels of Part oats from Mom.'
zutna and this year I had (.nornm
seed to sow and I put iu live at ' -with
the disc harrow the first v, ,
in March. The weather prevent :
me from putting them in n: i'e
ruary. I sowed them on thin u
land and fiom three acres I threshe i
137 bushels. I cut them the ia-'
week in May, say 11 weeks from
the time they were sowed, and ha I
them out of the way two weeks b
fore wheat harvest. The straw ;
almost as line as timothy and t .
stock will cat it all up. in the wiub : .
One of my nabors. a good faiim:.
sowed 100 acres of led rust- r '
last fall and never made a busied.
He sowed again in January nab
they came up in time m be kill d

litya Such a gill possesses a for
tune in her own right which no
fluctuations of business circles can
depreciate and who will never be
come a drag upon opulent and un
willing relatives. With health and
strength and a fair star! in the race
for life she vvd; reach every mile
stone (d'-iicre-s N'oi wear out. or
glow discouraged by the way: and
not infrequently she will outrun
her vaunting brother, and c"on
stop to lend him a helping baud.
The properly-balanced, well edu
cated girl is aware that she can do
one thing well and she bends all
her energies towards its acconipli-h-ineiii.
She concentrates lmr (bices,
iii-teiid of scattering them, and has
something !o show for it. She is
the best accountant, or t he cleverest
writer, or the most successful sales
woman, or the hardest wutkerin
the sciences music, physic, law
whatever her talent destines her
for. She studies with an aim. and
understands what she learns. Her
mind is a storehouse, not a sieve,
and she endeavors to absorb quality
rather than quantity, and eompi e
bend to her own enlightenment
what she studies. The wretched
system of forced culture iu which a
gill learned a little French and
La! in, a smattering of mathematics,
a glance into polite literature, and
a gieat ileal of pour piano playing,
has been abandoned in favor of a
more sensible curriculum commen
surate with her value as a co-wot ker
wii h her brothers.
Sensible German parents have
always brought up their daughters
to be producers as well as eoustim
crs in the d.oiiie.-iic economy. It i
otily the American parent who made
the kitchen unattractive to his
daughter, and gave her no possibil
ity of employ ing her talent, except
in the few lady-like departments
sanctioned by conservative custom.
The time is coming, nay, has al
ready come, when a sign reading
"Smith cc Daughters," will merely
indicate that all Mr. Smith's boys
were giils, and he had educated
t hem as he would hav e done if I hey
had been boys. And the Smith
girls instead of dawdling around the '
paternal mansion until some young
men could be found for husbands,
have wisely gone into business w ith
fla ir father, and have never found
time to be discontented with them
selves. When F.disoii. genius and inven

, found the rate of progress there very
j i-rat 1 1 1 1 1 jar . The lai lid it is la.w

di'sinnti d time. The design of the
neon build inn is now .ippni eril,, Hin-'e all
the w eal herboH rd ing is com pteled and
the roof ,., n. The engravings of ii irp
leseiit it very accurately. The roof in
cvered with patent felt rooting, and
(hi- looks like a great nheet of Ida. k as
one appma-'heR tlie building. The in
ii ii. r work goes on rapidly. Thole iH
nun li con nti-r and nhel f wink. The in
terior arrangement shows much good
jii' I ..'iiirii t . and every inch of space has
lieen inilizi'il. Yet thin is done in Me h
iiw.iy ih.it there is no crowding uml
each di-plav will have ids (iistinciive
-pa' e. There are carefully drawn Uia
grains of the interior and from these it
e,.n readily be seen juRt where each ex
hibit is to be placer!. Many cars cun-
taming the State exhibit i from Bohton i
have arrrived. In a little while that
exhibit w ill be unpacked and arranged
in the imnienRe npaco set aside specially
for it. " i
S. cretai y Fries iH now in Philadelphia,
looking after matters connected with j
tlie mach iiif rv exhibit. 1 1 is success has '
been gratifying, and the finest display i
of machinery yet seen South is assured.
1 1 is elf arts to secure a complete exhibit '
of useful machinery have been more,
-uccessful than even he had hoped.
To-day at 2:30 p. m. the d irectorH of
the KxcsiMon hold their regular
monthly meeting, at which considerable
routine work will be done.
The rejior js from the counties which
will exhibit become daily more encour
aging. They show how widespread and
how deep is the interest in (he exposi
tion, in all parts of the State. The
pride of the people is thoroughly
in Hi-el. and the rivalry between the
c HI lit ies is great.
The far! that this year of grace. Iss4,
is an exceptional crop yr.'ir will greatly
add to the agricultural features of the
d l-plav . as w ill be seen. Such wheat,
oats and ryaa such corn, tobacco and
grasses have never been seen here. The
crops in the Slate were perhaps never
liner, take them all around, and manv
old farmers say tM're never was such a
year. This is a good thing for the ex
position in cvi rv respect.
Piesident Primrose is certainly the
right man in the right place. He is'
untiring in hiselfoits to make the ex
position worthy of this great common
wealth and be will succeed.
One specie- of ash wood, found in:
John-Ion county, was not shown at I
Huston. It w ill be sent tothe exposition '
by a gentleman of that county. By the
way. Johnston will maku a good nhow t

' P. -fore I brought her out I w as a
I ittle afraid she hud nil been worked
hard e le ugli for a fat mile. In the1
morning she made a mile in 2. IS. and a
half hour before the test in 2:27. Hefore
hitching up T fa-tened this watch to my
buttonhole, and it lay on my lap all the,
way around, so I knew just how- each
quarter was being made, and before I
passed un 'er the w ire I was aware that
the record had been broken. Hefore I
brought Maud S. out I was satisfied that
il she did not do better than 2:10 she
would do it on Monday, -ind I was de
termined to drive her fast. I did not
dare force her wry fast to the quarter
pole, and was satisfied when I reached
it in 1123. Then I began to crowd her.
1 wanted to reach the half mile in 1.0-1
We did reach it in l:04f. I was confi
dent the record would be beaten. From
there to the wire it was only a question
of endurance. "

the event. "
