There are always foolish people who
will do some fcolbh thing*. We find
those in all ages ; even long before the
people of the United States w ere foolish
enough to fasten Grant npon their necks,
there were foolish virgins who did not
611 their lamps, and therefore could not
be admitted to the wedding feast. Rut
all this foolishness finds company iu a
couple of Jerseymen. who were fools
enough to go into a rough and tumble tight
on a • fsffi'td, a few days ago. in Trenton
—the affair ending, as any foolish affair
of the kind would, in a grand tumble.
If we wanted to fight, we would choose
terra finna, with plenty of room to run,
and nothing in the way to make us
stumble—a clean track for leg-bail—
that's the way the Reporter would choose
its ground, out of purely prudential rea
sons—and great prudence should be ex
ercised in a matter of this kind, which
would save many a licking. We never
got licked vet, because we never would
misbehave when totlier fuller was the
bigger. But, about fighting on a scaf
fold, that's what we desire to get at, and
we would greatly caution against it, le
--cause the following account of a trial of
it is not very encouraging :
Edward Clark and Michael Mack,
masons, fought on a scaffold on the three
story building in Spring stret t, Trenton,
on Monday. Covert, the foreman, went
up to separate them, and in the tussle
the three were precipitated to the
ground, thirty-fire feet. Eight feet of
the wall gave way and fell with the men,
burying them beneath it. The men
were extricated unconscious and fearful
ly mangled. Mack's right leg was bro
ken above the knee, and he had many
outs about the body and some internal
injuries. His recovery is doubtful.
Clark's right leg was broken, and he
had a fearful gash at the hack of his
head. Covert sustained a broken arm,
many cuts upon the head, and was bruis
ed about the body.
As will be seen by an advertisement in
this week's Reporter, the annual election
for President and IHreetors of the L. C.
& f. C. RR. will be held at Philadelphia,
on June 8. This the railroad
work —the election of officers —is per
formed with precision, but the essential
and important matter, the pushing for
ward of our road is done with a speed
that is set in the shade by a snail's pace.
There is another matter that nas prompt
ly attended to—and that was the collec
tion of the stock subscribed along the
line, while the money that was to have
been furnished by the Penn'a. RR. com
pany to carry the work to "a speedy
completion" still remains among the
things that did not come up to sacred
pledges, although our finest and best
farms liave been ait ap by the construc
tion of a road-bed tbrougb them only tea
be washed by the rains and torn away
by the floods. We see no good excuse
for this state of affairs. The panic— two
years ago—did furnish an excuse for
a discontinuance of the work nt that time,
and which our people, whose money has
been spent, and whose lands have been
rent, were willing to pat np with, but we
do allege that the "mighty corporation"
is in shape now to make good its promi
ses to our people, as the sum needed to
secure the running of the cars to Centre
Hall, or some point in Penns valley, is
but a trifle for the Penn'a. RR.Comiiany.
In the name of our injured people we
call upon the Penn'a. RR. Co. to perform
its promises—promises that might have
been and could liave been fulfilled
two years ago—and put the work under
contract with the utmost speed, and thus
secure our people the advantages to
which they entitled by virtue of the
money they have paid and the land that
has been taken from them.
The Somerset Democrat any* : It is a
matter of common remark that more
drunkenness lias been seen on our streets
since the granting of licenses, than was
witnessed for the last year. Men who
have not been under the influence of
liquor for many months, were seen stag
gering on the highways, and numerous
scenes of a disgraceful cliaracter shocked
the better portion of our community.
But it is not in town only where the ef
fect of license is already visable. Men
from the country, who heretofore had
no opportunity of drinking, were seen
returning home so drunk that they fell
from the seats of their wagons.
CONDITION OF THE CROPS.
Toledo, May 13.—The blade publishes
this afternoon an elaborate crop report,
carefully compiled frotn tUtement* by
competent parties at 150 point* in Ohio,
Indiana, Illinois, Missouri and lowa.
These statements indicate that from one
quarter to one thhd of a crop of winter
wheat has been killed but that has been
nearly offset by the increased number of
acres sowed, and the quantity of spring
wheat will, if everything is favorable,
henceforth bring the whole production te
that of an average crop. A bout a quarter
of last year's crop still remains in the

that Spencer's election was void. There

pledge. The Lieutenant Governor Me-
Kim-lay 1 was to rule, and the Republi
can Senators were to sustain his rulings
so as to settle the contest before notice
of the treachery could Ih- conveyed to
the alment Democratic Senators, The
testimony of Robert Barber, Clerk ofthe
Court Room lower House, and also Clerk
ofthe same House after consolidation, is
a sample of the w hole mass. Barlx-r be
ing dnlv sworn testified as follows. 1
I was Clerk of the lower House of the
! Court Room Legislature,and also Clerk
of the House in the Consolidated Legis
lattire. The object of the Court Room
legislature was to secure the organixa
j tion and elect General Spencer to the
Cnited States Senate. Wo did not think
this could be done if we met at the Capi
tol. After relating the means employed
by Spencer to shelve ex-Governor Bar
sons and Alexander White, who he had
heard would be rival candidates for the
Senate, the witness proceeded : I have
letters from Spencer relative to the use
of troops, but as they are confidential I
do not propose to introduce them." The
committee insisted on seeing the letters,
and Barlier, after consulting hi* counsel,
introduced them. la-tter No. 2. dated
Decatur, Oct. 22,1873, after stating what
troops had been ordered to Alabama,
.u>d where stationed, proceeded thus:
"I wish Randolph, Deputy United Stato
Marshal, would use the company at Opel
ika in making arrests in Talahoosa, Ran- j
dolph and Clabourne counties. I wish I
you would go to Tailadego and block the J
game. I must not, however, he known
in this tnatfer. Signed in haste, truly '
yours, George K. Spencer.
The.witness continued : The cxpres-1
sion relative to the arrest in Randolph,
and other counties refers to a letter re- j
eeived by me from Randolph county, in
which it was stated that if troops could
be sent into counties named to make n'
few arrests, enough votes could be run
out of them to secure the election of tin '
Republican candidates for the la-gisla
ture ; I informed General Spencer 1 >f t he-e <
facts, anil this is what that part of his
letter relate* to the assistant secretary
ofthe Republican State Executive Com
mittee ;I was fiuniliar with the plan of
Spencer and the Republican party ; J. J ;
Hind* was Spencer's confidential man..
and represented him in every particular ;;
he had control of every movement; in j
our conference* I was informed that all
the money needed to secure Spencer's
election was provided and in the hands
of Hind* :it was said that the Lowndes
county delegation, except Major Hunter,
were disaffected, and this would defeat
Spencer'* election ; we were informed
that $2,(00 had been raised to diaaffeet
these member*; I interviewed several
of the delegation, and told them that
Spencer had made up hi* mind to give
each of tlu-ui an ap|*oiiitment, and Spen
cer, who was present, promised them
route agencies ; Bryant, another inem
ber, arrived the next day, and, a* I un
derstood, received s3o*l from Hinds; this
seemed to fix the Lowndes county dele
gation ail right ;the Legislature conven
ed that morning : the Lowndes county
delegation were present and voted for
Spencer; many members from other
counties were promised offices; I was
authorized by Spencer to promise mem
bers ns many offices as I might think
necessary to secure their support. After
testifying to the drugging of a member,
the witness proceeds to detail how Baker
and Chisholm, two men from distant
counties, gcnerully known to have been
not elected, were sent forand induced by
the promise of office to enter the Court
room Legislature a* Representatives of
their respective counties. The witness
further testified that (lending the cam

communicated to Sjieucer, and Which
was finally adopted. The trooj* were to

la* cut from oceuu to is can is conceded.
I'tie opinions of engineers settle that

of no trifling character in the way, hut
they can he removed hy the hand of
science. Ihe Siier canal has been con
structed ; there is a tunnel l>cuc.ith the
Alps ; tin- telegraphic cable speaks with
"liiiist miraculous organs" from umU-i
fathoms of deep sea waves. In a few
years it is exjactetl that cars wilt he
speeding from France to Fngland with a
depth of water alsoe them stlllieient to

works are jmssible, why not a ship canal
from mean to ocean across the waist of
this continent? The croakers declared
the Sue* i-atial could not te built. It
was built. They predicted it would soon
be chokeil with the shifting suud of tin
I desert. They have proved false proph
ets. The same men put in print their
estimates to convince the public that
the Suez canal would make no returns
of a satisfactory financial character. The
business foots up in a totally different
direction. In the year 1>73 the Working
expenditure* of the Sue* canal amounted
j to twenty-three per cent, of the gross re
ceipts. The net revenue for that year
was $3,830,000. of which the preferred
charges absorbed $2,34-\OUO, leaving sl.-
485,000 for a share dividend, which is
ihrcc attd three-quarters js-r cent. In
1572 there were 1,082 vessels (<a-cd
through the canal representing 1,439, Hi*>
tons. In 1873, the Vfcwlit itu*rca-od to,
1,173, and the tons to ?,08- r > l oi<l. Again,
in IS7-4 there was an advance both in!
vessels and tonnage. The former'
amounted to 1,264, and the latter to 2,- j
124,4(0. The British standanl of c.-in
men ial grow this applied to the advance
of the canal's butanes*, which is "a mill- j
iurum increase of live |wr cent, j*-r an-1
num." Less than this would have add
ed one-half of one jer cent, each v car to ;
the dividends of the company. If the
affairs of the Sue* C anal Company exhi
bit such results as those given from offi
cial sources, there need Is- no fear for
the cash returns front a work that would
jsiss vessels from the Atlantic to the l'a
eitic oceans. If the Sue* canal is a sue
ces, its parallel enterprise w ill not be a
failure. These facts are sufficient to

Washington, May In.—To-ilay the
movement against the whiskey ring, in
which the Secretary of the Treasury has
been engaged for two months (cist, ml
minuted in the seizure of some thirty
distilleries and rectifying houses in the
citie* of St. Louis, Chicago and Milwau
kee. The evidence collected isof a char
acter to insure the present destruction of
the whiskey ring. It haviug come to
the Secretary V know ledge, before he set
his investigations on foot, that all offi
cial information of action affecting the
ring in nny part of the couutry was
promptly communicated to it in advnm e
by some person or (arsons jn the Inter
nal Revenue office, it was decided to
prosecute the entire inquiry through the
Solicitor's Office of the Treasury. The
work was entrusted to Major Bluford
Wilson, and no feature of it was cotnmn
nicatcd to Commissioner iFniglas* or
any of hi* subordinates until the real
work was couqdeted and orders of seiz
ure alone remained to Is- made. As the
law provides that such orders shall come
from the Commissioner of Internal Rev
enue the details of the work accomplish
ed and the evidence collected were plac
ed in his hands, and some of the facts
were entrusted to his subordinates,
through whom they were almost imme
diately in part made public, as the dis
connected statements regarding the
movement, which have appeared during
the last week, sufficiently attest. The
President throughout lias sustained the
Secretary most vigorously, and the mo
ment the main facts of the frauds per
petrated were called to his notice lie
cordially co-operated in indorsing evcrv
movement necessary to secure success.
It has been ascertained that about two
thirds of the whiskey shipped from St.

termed "Crooked," as whiskey which
has not paid tax is called. Tin- amount
of fraud in St. Louis alone w ill not fall

The developments at Chicago and Mil
waukee arc also on a great scale. Illicit
whiskey has been traced into all the
prominent Eastern and Southern cities.
Duplicates and even triplicates of stamp*
on packages hearing the same serial
numbers and the same stamps have been
discovered, ami with several houses it
has been the usual thing to enter oil the
stub of the stamp issued only half the
amount of whiskey actually shipped un
der the detached stamp. All the differ
ent methods have been discovered, and
such transcripts taken in addition, us
will, when compared with the returns
made to theoffice of Internal Revenue,
make it possible to trace the larger part
of all the illic it traffic which has been
carried on for the hist year.
The collusiou of u number of Revenue
officers at the points named is establish
ed beyond question, and a number of
changes will follow this development.
Suit will be immediately enteredaguilist

parties and their bondsmen, and the
prospect seems fair that tljc Government
will be able to establish so strong a case
as to recover from tlie property seized
an amount nearly, if not quite, equal to
the sum total of the frauds perpetrated.
No move upon this scale has ever before
been undertaken. It has proved most
successful in everything, and the results
are in every respect of the highest im

n.titd can cl t indt prudently of the nerr
outayaltm. W here there i* no ncrvob*
•y*tem there u no mind, and where lha
nervous *ystctu i. injured or damaged,
there is corresponding injury or derange
ment of the rnind.
The capacity of Daniel Webster * era-;
i ium wa the largest on record, naruely—

family, including the Kngiuh, German*,
and American*, it tc inchea In the na
tive Afrit an it i> Nt inches, and ui the Aus
tralian ard Hottentot. To. The brain of
tlie idiot seldom weighs over 21 ounce*,
and in my own experience, 1 have found it
often at low a* 16.
Absolutely the IO mini human brain i
larger than that of any other annual ex
cept that of the Elephant and the whale.
Relatively to the weight of the body it ve
ry greatly exceeds the proportion existing
in either. By the term mind I understand
a force developed bv nervous action. All
the manifestations ot which the mind is ca
pable in its fullest development are em
braced in tour groops—perception, the in
tellect, the emotions, and the will; any
ene of these may be exercised indepen
dently of the others.
If the entire brain be removed from a
frog, the animal will continue to perform
those function* which are immediately
connected with the maintainancc of life.
Jf the web between tlio toe* i* pinched the

-boulder be scratched with a needle the
hind foot of the tame side is raised lo re
move the instrument. If the anuiiil i*
held up by one leg it struggle*. I fit i*
K laced on it* back, a position to which
■ogt always object, it at once turtle* over
|on its belly. If one foot i* held firmly
with a pair of forceps, the frog endeavor*
t<> draw it away. If unsuccessful, it place*
thu other foot against the instrument and
pushes convulsively in tho effort to re
move it. Not succeeding, it writhe* the
whole body from side to side, and always
in a forward direction.
All those and even more complicated
motion* are performed by the decapitated
alligator. Wo have frequently seen the
| headless body of the rattlesnake coil iLe!f |
into a threatening attitude, and when irri
tated, strike its bleeding trunk against the
offending body. On one occasion a team
ster on Hie Western plain* decapitated one;
'of these reptiles with hi* whip, and when
bending down lo examine it more careful-1
ly be was struck by it full in the forehead;
So powerful was the shock to his nervous
system that he fainted and remained un
eoncious for several minutes A natural
historian relates that a viper whoso head
had been cut off determinedly moved!
toward it* hole in the wall.
What is Mind?
Wherever thero is gray nervous tissues
in action there is mind I removed the
brain of large frog, and waiting a few
minutes for tin- animal to recover from the
1 shock 1 pinched the left hind foot with a
pair of forceps. The limb wa* at once'
withdrawn. 1 pinched a little harder, and '
the aniiual struggled violently to escape,
and succeeding, made several leap* of two
or three feet each. I then touched the
| right side of the abdomen with a glass rod
ion which was a drop of vinegar. The
'right bind foot wa* at once carried lo the
exact spot 1 hud touched, and wa* rubbed'
energetically against the (kin. The left
side was treated similarly and the rod was
held in contact with the skin. It wa
l pushed away by tho left hind foot. The
-kin over the left shoulder wn then seized
with the forceps, and tightly held.
Varying the Experiment.
| Efforts were made to remove the instru
| menl with the left hind fool, nnd these not
-uccet'ding, tlio whole body of the animal
wits violently agitated, and through the
struggle the hold of the forceps was h|p
;rd nod the frog made two leaps. Laid up
on it* back it immediately resumed the
I ordinary position on it* belly with its hind
j legs drawn up. I then held the glass rod
• with a drop of vinegar against the right
"The frog tried to push the instrument
away with the right hind foot, und it then
made similar • tl'orts with its left hind foot,
and not succeeding, it made a leap ofabout

spot with the left hind foot. Another
