Tbe inquiry has beeu thrust

the insatiate greedines for office
which admits of no refuaal, but

into merited oblivion.
While tbe world at larfce aces

men', in the South and applauds
her conduct, the Republican Party
is not satisfied. It claims that it is
robbed of ita power and influence,
at the South, because elections are
determined not by a majoruy of the

The New York World was not
tavorable to the election ot Calvin
S. Brice to tbe chairmanship of the
Democratic National Executive
In replying to the Rrooklyn
Eagle's endorsement of the platform
of 1JVS4, the World says: While
maintaining a scrupulous regard
for tho rights of property aa denned
by law, the platform of ISA declar
ed stontly In favor of all legislation
that will tend to the eqnitable dis
tnbntion of property, to the pre
vention of monopoly and to the
stric: enforcement of individual
righta against corporate abase.''
Woold this declaration aeem quite
consistant with tha advancement
of a millionaire closely identified
with the intereata of corporations
aad monopolies to the leadership
and management of the party
If we did uot know that the World
is intelligently edited we might not
wonder at ita blundering.
The chief difference, between the
two great parties, is in the fact that
the Democratic Jmrty is a party of
principles, while the liepnWican
party is a party of expediency.
One holds to a strict construction
of the onstitution, while the other
give to that instrument the utmoet
latitude and the freest possible
constrnction. The Democratic par
ty insists that the National Govern
ment haa no power that is not
conferred by tjie Constitution: the
liepablican party claims lor the
General Government absolute do
minion over the States and Terri
tories of the I nited States and the
people thereo). The Democratic
party may go before the country
upon any platlorm of its past Cam
paigns: the liepublican party, hav
ing no fixed standard, must adopt
a new platform for every canvass.

Cause and Effect.
Many things which seem myster

men, might be, it the cause and
effect w ere understood, as easy of
solution as the question in the
following incident, which is related
of Butl'on, the great naturalist.

i of distinguished savants at dinner,
I at the conclusion of which they all
! went out into the garden.
; It was a very hot summer's day.
In the centre of the grounds there
j stood oa a pedestal a large glass
j globe, which one of the guests
happened to touch with his hand,
when he found, to his astonishment
that it was warmer on the shady
side than on the side turned toward
He communicated this discovery
to tbe other guests, who at once
'proceeded to verify t he statement.
What could be the cause ?
An animated discussion ensued,
m the course ot which every imagi
nable law of physics was made to
account for the strange paradox.
At leig'.'u our scientists agreed
that it mu.st be so, owing to the
laws of reflection, repulsion, or
exhalation, or some other law of
physics with a long name.
The host was, however, not quite
convinced, and, calling the gar
dener, he said to him, "Pray tell
us why the globe is warmer on the
shady side than on the side turned
to the sun T"
The man replied, "Because just
now I turned it round for fear of its

A Miser's Iron Tf ill.
As two travellers were passing
on foot through a sequestered
valley, their way led them through
a lonely little church-yard, upon
one of the tombstones of which
they deciphered the following
"Here lies the soul of one whose
name shall perish.''
"What a queer old epitaph!"
exclaimed one of the travellers;
"the xoul of one, forsooth ! how
could the soul of a man be im
prisoned in a sepulchre !''
'Ridiculous !" rejoined the other,
who was a man of few words but
much sagacitv; and thev proceeded
on their journey in silence to the
But the sagacious man thought
that he discerned in the words
chiselled on the old marble slab
something more than their first
sense expressed. lietorning
privately to the lonely church-yard,
he removed the slab from its place,
and found buried underneath it a
heavy iron casket, which, on beiDg
opened, proved to be full of gold
pieces. On the inside of the lid ot
the casket were inscribed the
"To him who has wit enough to

"Ha ! ha !" laughed the sagacious
traveller, "if not your son, I am at
least vour heir. Never mind the
name, old boy. Let it perish !"
And he went on his way, re
joicing. Crooked Eels.
Au elderly man sat placidly on
the string piece of a far downtown
pier, contemplatively waiting for a
bite at the other end of his fishing
line. It came, and the old fellow
pulled out a Tery --wriggly" eel.
What'm I goin' to with 'imf he
echoed to a stranger's querry. "I'm
going to make 'im
lay still and
keen alive, too." Grasping his
squirming prize with a well sanded
hand, he laid him out perfectly
straight along a crack in tbe
wharf's flooring. Then he let him
go. The eel's eyes had a strained,
intense look in them, as if he was
doing his level best to squirm, but
not a quiver passed along his rigid
"Fver see a machine get on a
dead center !" asked the wise old
fisherman. "That's what ails the
eel. Ye never see an eel straight
in the water. No, nor ye never
will. He's got to keep crooked, or
rather he can't get straight. When
he is he's paralyzed. One set of
muscles pulls just as even against
the other, so he can't move."
A hour later the stranger passed
that way again. The eel still lay
there, feeling, no doubt, like the
Titan under the mountain. The
old mau gave the eel a push, 60
that the straight line was broken.
The eel began instantly to wriggle
harder than he did on the end of
the line just out of the water.
"How did you learn that trick?"
the stranger asked. "I always
knew it," was all the old man could
tell. Philadelphia Press.

We learn that on Saturday Dlght
last at Trenton quite a biick flat
ting and bottle chunking affair
took place between t-omt! young
white men from the country and
several ot the negroes. A Mr,
Hudson was struck by a brick and
was severely hurt. We hear that
the officers of the law had con
siderable difficulty in managing
some of the negroes who appeared
disposed to have a riot.
Some of our enterprising citizens
of Trenton are having daring the
dull times a real good time of it
hooking loggerhead turtles in Capt.
Page's mill pond. We learn tht
they suspend their hooks to a
swinging limb just so it will reach
the surface of the water with a
frog as bait, which is soon dis
covered by the turtle, bites at it
and finds it impossible to break the
hook, as every effort that he makes
to do so makes a kind of vibrating

over and call to memory the inci

"The Land oftbe Midnight Sun"
mast indeed be an interesting
portion of the earth's surface to
risit if we may judge from the ex
tremely interesting and beautifully
illustrated article about that region
that appears in Demorest'a Month
ly Magazine for July; and that the
modes of travel in that far-off
country are agea behind the times
is clearly shown by turning to
another article in the same number
of this valuable Family Magazine.
In a most charming manner we are
told of the -'Comforts of Modern
Kailway Travel" in our own coan
try, and the illustrations give us a
comprehensive idea of the luxury
one may find in one of our palares
on wheels, from the kitchen to the
boudoir. "Birds In Our Homes,"
by Olive Thorne Miller, also hand
somely illustrated, will please all
lovers of onr feathered friends;
Elder Thompson, the famous
Universalist preacher who died
some years ago, was once asked to
marry a couple whose religions
views were at variance with his
own. After the ceremony the bride
groom expressed his entire satisfac
tion with the service. don't see,
he said, "that you could have done
it any better it you'd believed in a
hell.' A Lttle theological discus
sien lollowed. in which Elder
Thompson advanced the idea that
"a man gets hell in this world."
Two years after Father Thompson
met the man again.
"You remember vou married
me V the man said.
'And that I said I hoped it would
bejust as happy a marriage as if
you believed in a hell T"
"Y'ou said something like that."
"And that you said some folks
got their hell in this world T"
"I might have said so."
"Parson, you was right."

When children are impressed by
the personal misfortunes of others,
they doubtless feel a tenderer sym
pathy than do most other people.
A little jirl oncea.ked why a friend
who had been ill with small pox,
"had marks on her face." The
reason was told her, and, though
she said nothing in reply, her face
was grave and thoughtful for many
Some time later her little brother
saw a negro whose face was similar

amused at what he thought the
man's very funny appearance.
"He's got holes all over his face !"
he whispered to his sister, in high
glee, but that young lady gravely
