your obedient servant, YVM. Merbick.
That your preducossort in office,

The official conduct of these men hus

MEYERBEER AND THE POET.
One night while ho was in Brussels
a duet came into bis mind at 2 A. 41.
Ho leaped from his bed, rang tho bell
for n sorvanl and asked for a poet.
1 ho servant, not Knowing what dish
that was, awoko tbe master of tho
bouse, and, after satisfy ing himself tbat
Meycrboor really wanted at that hour
of the night a biped wbo turned out
verses, gave him the address of a well
known llelgian poet, ordered a cab
und sent Moyerboor to the dramatist's
home. Meyerbeer tuggod tbe boll till
he brought tho master, who answered
the alarm in tbe worst possible humor
until the visitor said : "I am Meyer
beer. Are you a poet ? "
"Yes, when 1 am in the vein, but
at these untimely hours, whon only
churchyards yawn, the humor is not
on me." "Humor is will; will is in

Meyer boor gave bis thoughts. "I

HARD TO TELL.
It is really getting to be difficult for
a stranger to it to tell that bo is read
ing a Republican newspaper. But a
few months since its politics were ob
vious enoui'b ; it bad then no aim in
the world but to elect Garfield and no
delight so great as to expatiato, after
the deed was done, upon tho virtuo of
tbo liepublican party and the great
glory it was to continue lo shed upon
mo liepublican press is not so
unanimous now. Its tunes uro dis
cordant. Tba orpins do not blow
sweetly and id unison. J. hey are not
alone occupied in denouncing the De
mocracy. In truth wo get but a small
sliaro ol their attention, and come in
lor more ha'pence than kicks, and more
smiles than frowns. J be house ts di

spicuons of luto years for the exceed

the extremity of its phobia against

expression of its disgust tt tho conduct
ol tbo Jlepublicau Setiiitonal bosses,
wl om it charges with tttempting to
Uflt rp a power that does not belong to
them iu refusing to go on wiUi the
public business until tbo Presideut
nominates tbo men to office whom thoy
want to bavo nominated. Are we
sorry that Garfield was elected? asks
tho Tribune; and it thinks not; but
nevertheless recognizes tbo fact that
while "six months ago the Republican
party was wild wilh joy" becauso Gar
field was elected, it is Dot thus joyous
to day. It refuses to belie vo tbat it is
because it has changed its mind and
repents ol what it did, but finds thai
tbo difficulty is that "tome men, wbo
could not bo elected themselves, think
that tha 1 resident belongs to them as
part of their live stock,'' bscauso thoy
turned in at the lust moment and so
cured bis election. Tlio wholo story
is tlic old 03c ; the Republicans having

A Connie of Third Ward eitieens mot

tbeir place of business, and ono of

nsked the other, a Jackson street mnn
it cows bad any front teotb on tbeir

was a litllo astonished at the nuoHtinn.
as there bad bocn nothing said about
cows, but replied promptly:
"Why, of courso thoy have front

they bile off grass if they hadn't?"
ihe Van Ituien street man said it

man did not know whother cows bad

ho ought to say so. "1 did not ask

The Jackson street man was a little
nettled at this, and replied witb somo
warmth. He said if ho had a child

the child was an idiot.
"You would ?"

But still the Jackson Btroct man
hesitated. It was barely possible that

Jackson street man was suro that tbe

"I wish you would.''
So the Jackson street man closod
tbo door, and rejoined his neighbor,
and tba two walked along without
saying a word. A milk wagon was
seen coming np tho street, and it was
rosolved to hail tbe driver and ask
bim the question, as it is popularly
supposed tbat milkmen aro more or
less lumihar witb cows. J ho Van
Huron street citizen cleared his throat
and yelled, "Hello I" Tho milkman
ruined up, and said :
do ahead witb your tests. It you
find any water or chalk in that milk

J ho citizen told bim to be calm, as
tboy had no intention ot testing bis
milk, but only wanted to know il cows
had front teeth on tbeir upper jaws.
the milkman looked at tbein about

kind of a fool that tboy were. Up on

ignorance, and said :

Doubtless many a grist was, in years

tidal or othorwise, on the island, com
pelled the first English occupants of it
lo bavo recourse to this method of
manufacturing their breadstuff. It
otters a pretty fairly balanced compar
ison ol laciiitici and cost with the uso
of walor power.

CARRYING AN EMPTY MAIL
Last year a contract was made with
William F. Davidson to carry a daily
mail packet Irom St. Paul to St. Louis
at (08,788 per annum, tbo term com
mencing July 1, 1880, and ending Juno
10, 1881. Tho criminal absurdity ot
any such contract is apparent on tbe
face ot it. lo carry mail Irom St.
Paul lo St. Louis by boat takes about
flvo days; to do it by rail lakes one.
Tbe service in question waa to bo
a through service botwoen those two
cities. This route was discontinued
4larcb 31, 1881. Tbero was paid reg
ularly the quarterly pay of 117,107
from July 1st of last year to 41 arch 31
of this year, with ono month's extra
pay on the discontinuance ot tbe route.
The amount of extra pay was 15,932.
There wa.) deducted Irom tbe pay for
failure to perform the sorvico duting
the first quarter (227, during the next
(13,417, and during tbo third (15,008.
Tbe total amount paid for this extra
ordinary service lor tho throe quarters,
including tho deductions, was C".i,!im.
The extent of tbo service rendered
may bo understood Irom tho fact that,
after the first protest against carrying
mails in tins way bad been overruled,
the post office clerk mado up an empty
pouch on tbe boat daily from St. Paul
to St. Louis. To put up letters into it,
and to delay them four days, was some
thing wbicb they would not consent to
do. So during tho lifo of tho onntruct

carrying an empty sack back and forth
between St. Paul and at. Louis.
