coarse meterial at hand. A large proportion
will grow next spring. The same may be said
of current and gooseberry cuttings. The roots
of raspberries may be cut up into bits three
inches long, and placed in boxes, alternating a
layer of soil and a layer of cuttings. The

WATER is an excellent protector for
half-hardy plants against frost. In southern
Europe where the winters are light many tender
'plants remain safely out-of-doors all winter
without being covered, by twisting straw into
heavy ropes which, on cold nights, are made
wet and then wound in ziz-zag lines around
plants and among the brandies of trees and
shrubs, each end heing submerged in a pail of
water. The water will rise by capillary attrac
tion and keep the rope wet the whole length,
and in the act of freezing enough licat is liber
ated from this water to raise the temperature
of the atmosphere surrounding the plants, and
thus save them from the cold. It is for the
same reason that trees on a moist ground can

AN indignant woman has up and
written to the Hartford Courant a violent
denunciation of the monument to Adam, pro
posed to be erected by the citizens of Elmira;
and the cause of all her bitterness id that a
monument should be going up to Adam before
any corresponding tribute has been paid to the
memory of Eve. To be sure, this violent
female does suggest something in the line of
the Missouri Compromise : she is half willing
to call it square with the Elmira people if they
will put an appropriate Eve epitaph on one
side of the Adam structure ; but what she really
wants is to see a monument run up that shall
apply to Eve and Eve only. Of course the
Elmira Adam Monument Association will pay
no attention to this absurd person's ridiculous
demaud, and we mention it here just to show
how wide of common sense a woman can steer
when she tries. The idea of talking about a

THE death of Mr. Chandler takes
from the Senate of the United States the last
but one of that memorable body of men, pre
sided over by John C. Breckenridge, of Ken
tucky, that assembled under the dome of the
Capitol immediately preceding the great civil
war. In point of learning, talents, genius, and
oratory that assemblage has never been sur
passed at any time in the history of the Repub
lic. It met in December, 1860, at a time when
the Nation was trembling on the verge of dis
solution. Its deliberations were watched by
the people both North and South with intense
anxiety. It held in its hands the destinies of
30,000,000 of human beings. The fate of a
mighty Nation was trembling in the balance.
The struggle between liberty and slavery was
about to culminate cither in the triumph of
freedom or an appeal to arms. The life of the
Republic was at stake, and as the curtain rose
upon the first act of the great drama the whole
world became anxious spectators of the scene.
The issue of peace or war was to be decided.
Either the country was to go forward in the
paths of industry and prosperity, or war was to
desolate the land and drench it with precious
blood. That was a great historic moment, and
every member of the Senate took his seat with
a heart full of solicitude and forebodings. In
that Chamber gathered the chosen Representa
tives of all the States of the Union. There
were th£ men who loved the Union and the
men who hated it, and of all that brilliant and
distinguished company but a single member is
left in the Senate—the venerable Hannibal
Hamlin, from Maine. The death of Mr.
Chandler leaves him sole survivor in the Sen
ate of all the members of 18U0. What a fitting
commentary upon the brevity and vanity of
human life ! Many of these men have left be
hind them records that make their memories
dear to the hearts of their countrymen. But
the men themselves are gone—gone beyond

Now, therefore, I, Rutherford B.

thanksgiving and prayer; and I ear

God for his mercies, and to devoutly

State Tax on Personal Property.
Auditor General Schell, with the
advice and approval of the Attorney
General, State Treasurer, and Secre
tary of the Commonwealth, has issued
a circular letter of instructions to the
Commissioners of the several counties,
with a view to securing the better as
sessment of personal property for State
taxation. This action is based upon
the law which requires the Auditor
General to give the necessary instruc
tions to the Commissioners of the
several counties "for carrying the laws
relating to the collection of State taxes
into uniform effect throughout the
State." The Auditor General reminds
Commissioners and township asses
sors that heretofore the assessments of
personal property, especially moneys at
interest, in many of the counties have
been carelessly and negligently made ;
that nearly all of the requirements of
the law have been disregarded; and
that it may be safely estimated that
at least one-half of the moneys at in
terest subject to taxation for State
purposes. He then says: "This
should not be so. The policy of the
law taxing money capital is not to lie
taken into consideration. The law
itself is imperative.* * * It is
hoped that the Commissioners will
refuse to accept any assessment
which, upon examination, proves to
be deficient, or not in accordance with
the requirements of the law, and that
such defectivo assessment shall be
returned to the assessor for correction.
It is the determination of this depart
ment, that the laws relative to taxa
tion for State purposes, shall be en

[Crawford Journal, Nov. o.]
The dispatch from Washington to a
Pittsburgh paper, which was re-pub
lished in the Journal of last week,
with reference to the candidacy of
Congressman Dick for Governor in
1882, was entirely without the knowl
edge or consent of Col. Dick, who has
never spoken or thought of being a
candidate for Governor, nor has he
been in Washington for several months,
and therefore the report that he was
talking up his own candidacy at that
point is necessarily erroneous.
This mistaken announcement, how
ever, has served a double purpose. It
has demonstrated an entire unanimity
upon the part of the Republican press
of Western Pennsylvania that the
next Republican candidate for Govor
nor should come from the Western part
of the State, and if (rom the west,
why not from the solidly Republican
Northwest? As the always eloquent
Tom Marshall said in the Republican
State Convention many years ago,
"We meet you at the top of the moun
tains with 30,000 Republican majority
to overcome the Democratic
strongholds in the cast," and, really
by 1882, after giving the cast the nom
inees for Governor for twenty-two
years—Curtin, Geary, Ilartranft, Hoyt
—it would seem as if the great Re
publican party of Western Pennsyl
vania should name the next Governor
of the State. The other good purpose
this mistake has served is to call atten
tion to Col. Dick's popularity in the
State, for upon all sides friendly words
are heard. The press especially has
given wide publicity and favorable
comment to the unauthorized and
j totally incorrect announcement of bis
f RAILROAD TIES MADE FROM GLASS.
—The use of paper as material for
| boots, also for the wheels of railroad
cars, where something very stout is
I required, now has become an old story,
I but some of thc marvel it first excited
may well be transferred to a new use
of glass for the sleepers of railroad
tracks. As a fact, glass as toughened
under the receipt process, is used at
Stratford, England for railroad sleepers,
thc upper side being grooved to hold
rail. These sleepers are cheap and cer
tain not to rot. We sometimes fancy
the surprise of our great grandfathers,
in coming to life again from the stage
coach era, to find the earth girdled with
tracks for steam locomotion. We need
not go so far back—we need only im
agine the wonder of a more recently
bygone generation at finding row-boats
and car wheels made of paper, and
railway ties of glass.— New York Sun.

Professor Harris' Descriptive Pamphlet on
Spermathorhea, Seminal Weakness
This pamphlet should be in the hands of every
one whoso sexual and nervous organization
has been wrecfec 1 by self abnse and rxcestcs, as
it shows the only true way of receivng a radical
cure, viz : Direct application of the remedy to
the principal seat of the disease. It shows how
the remedy acts by absorption and exerts its
specific influence on the SEMINAL VESICLES.
EJACULATOIIV DUCTS, PBOSTRATK GLAND URE
THRA. It >hows the use of the remedy is at
tendel with no pain or inconvenience, and dooa
not interfere with the ordinary pursuits of life,
as it is quickly dissolved and soon absorbed,
producing an immediate soothing and restora
tive effect, Htopping the drain from the system,
restoring the mind to health and sound memory,
removing the DIMNESS, NERVOUS DEBILITY. CON
FUSION OK IDEAS, AVERSION TO SOCIKTY. <Vc , Ac.,
and tho appearance of premature old age usually
accompanying this trouble, r.nd restoring perfect

years. This pimphlet alone Rives the testimony
of hundreds sent in grateful acknowledgment
of the benefit derived from the use of Prof.
