Rardsley was a rascal and was
puuUhed by the Republican city gov
ernment of Philadelphia. Why
didn't the Democratic state govern
ments of the several states whose
t state treasurers were defaulters, run
down and punish their rascals ? The
Republicans try to reform their party
by punishing the rascals that creep
into it, the Democrats cover up their
crimes, when they cau, and let their
criminals escape when their work can
be no longer hid. That is the differ
ence in the parties. If Pennsylvania
voteis wants good government and
honest reform, they will not try the
experiment of putting into ofllce
hungry Democrats to do it.

kindly to the idea of bosslsm being

A number of old cases will bo callod up
noxt week, among thorn is ono that has
boon hanging Are for a year tho caso of
Moao Davis, who had two young mon ar
rested for stealing razors from his barber
shop. The caso was doferre J to give the
accused a chanco to sottlo, but thoy failod

A South Slain street Polish business man
has loft for parts unknown, lie wa9 to

one daylast weok on complaint of a girl of
town, but his protestations of gO"d faitb
wore bo strong and siucoro tho parents of
the girl consontod to his roleaso without

A lady conversing with a Ukuald re
porter last night regarding the Poles, Iluns
and Arabs ot town recalled an instance in
which 6ho was repaid in a novel manner
for a kindness she bad shown. An Ara
bian peddlor who could barely make him'
self understood in tho English languago
called at her house one day and aeked per
mission to havo bis mail cent to hor home.
Uo explained that owing to his poor
knowledge of tho English languageho ox
porioncod much difficulty in securing bis
mad in tho post office. If his loiters wore
sent to the house all difficulty would be
avoided. Tho permission was given and
letters addnesed to the Arabian poured In
soon after. But one day the lady was sur
prised to Una a (core ot Arabian men,
women and children at her door, with
trunks, boxes and bags. They were imini
grants for whom the Arabian had sent to
New York and they went to tho borrowed
address under the supposition that it was
their friond's home or an Arabian boarding
bouse. It rt quired forcible demonstrations
to prevent the mob entering the house.
The lady of the house lost no time in not!
fying the Arabian man of letters to have
bis mail sent elsewhere.
A story is told ot a number of town
ladies who hold a picnic in tUo Catawissa
valley roecntly. Mon were oxcludod. It
was a purely female affair and they enjoyed
themselves as all glrU do when thoy are
sure that tho masculine sex are not near.
One of the ladies proposed a series of
acrobatic feats, ono of which was the climb
ingofahay mow in a convenient barn.
This font was accompanied by a trick.
Two ladies climbed to tho top of tho mow
and desconded, A third was Induced to
attempt the feat. She contented aud
struggled gradually to the top when, to hor
dismay, a flguro In male attire emerged
from a hole. AY lib a shriek' the lady slid
down tho mow to the barn floor. Tho
descent was not very graceful, but It was
rapid. Shouts of laughter filled tho barn
as the male figure also slid down to tho
barn flour. Explanations were then
order. The flguro in male attlro was an
old suit of clothes stuffed. It was carried
to the top of tho mow by two rouglsh
maidens previous to tho arrangemont of

Walllcli on Monday.
Monday ovoning in Forguson's theatre,
Mr. Jas. H Wallick will produoo his
favors cquostorian success entitled, ''Tho
Mountain King." "Tho Mountain King"
Is tho style of play that ploases all classes.
The interest commences as soon as the
curtain goos up, and from that time on it
never ceases. It is of tho sensational order.
but as a rule the dialogue is far, very far,
above tho ayorago ol p ays nf its class in
literary quality. It is clovcrly constructed
and prosi nts a number of stirring situations
and climaxes. It is well acted, tho cast
being unumally strong in tho several parts,
and thero Isn't a word in it to bring tho
blush to the cheek of tho innocent. Virtue
suffers in tho second act, but triumphs in
tho fifth, wiiilo villiany which is successful
in tho beginning meets with ignominy and
retribution in tho last. Mr. Wallick, as
Hart Sam2san, has a part W"ll suited to his
stylo of acting and never fails to bring
rounds of applause from tho audience.
The wonderful acting hortes Kaidor,
Charger, Toxas and Pete are unequaled as
equine actors and perform wonderful tricks
during tho progress of tho play. The now
scenery is handsomo and tho mechanical
fleets are novel and ingenious,
The caving in of tho floor in the Egyptian
museum on Wednesday night is being
harped upon by the irroprejsiblo story tel
ler. It is said that nn Irishman from
Brownsville who cscapod going down with
tho floor said to a friend 'after; leaving tho
place: "Shure, an' whin I saw tho flour
go down I didn't say a word. I thought it
was part of the ploy and tho fleur would
como up again." Another ttory runs this
way. After tho floor fell a tramp walltod
to tho odgo of tbo hole and asked a young
man, "Am you fast?" Upon receiving a
reply in tho affirmative the tramp took tho
hat from the young man's hoad and walked
off with it.
Comic Songs, Good and Bad.
What a relief to an audienco when a
comic song is on tap to find tho rhyme
smooth and tho humor natural; It not only
heightens tho effect but adds to the onjoy
mont of reflecting on its morits. How
many cheap, trashy, maudlin songs thero
are on our stage, iguorantly and murdor
ously put together, leaving with us only re
gret that tho author still had life to further
inflict bis nightmares upon us. But what
was the pleasurable surprise of tbo vast
audienco lust night when one after the
other came original songs written in a
maatorly manner and convulsing tho spec
tators with their unctuous and irresistable
humor. Never have I so desired to witness
u perlormance a second time and novor
