Mr. Radical majority in Connecticut is
425, which some of 'our friends, with unri-
Ekill in mathematics, have figured out
as a Democratic gain of nearly three thous
and. „Our taste for election figures has
grown "beautifully less" since last fall, so
that we have no curioity to•givo - l - the subject

Most or the other appointees for foreign
positions are persons little known to the Falb-

upon reading, them, that "Grant scorns to have
raked the country over frc the most obscure

our representatives abroad." Of the half
dozen from Pennsylvania, it might be said,
as Col. McClure told the President about
Boric, that "no one ever heard of them be

Liberia, and t. D. Bassett; a Philadelphia

suppressed rage, mentioned the appointments
to which he had reference. '

Smarten , nen are apt to care little or noth
ing about Life -Insurance, because it promises
no immediate gains to -themselves person
ally. But eve•y man of generous impulses
acknowledges his obligation to those de
pendent upon him, and_ sees in Life Insur
ance the very best means of making pruvi
shins fur his wife and children in the event
of his death. Look into the matter- a little,
and let the - agent for ',The American" of
Pbiladelphiii. make out your application as
soon as possible.
