The American people showed I hem selves absolutely determined that he should nover be cninmissinued In be the personal representative of the. might and majesty of the I'niled Stales. What makes tho matter more remarkable is ' the fact that Mr. Illalnn had every ad I vantage in his favor. Without question he won tho greatest Kilitician in his country, not in 0110 but in every branch of (Kilitics. As a wirepuller and an or ganizer bo had no rival, and he could manipulate the party machine as no other man in theStates could manipulate it. He never luado an enemy where thero was tho slightest chnncoof making a friend, and he would take iih much trouble to conciliate the humblest and most unknown citizen as the greatest "sachem." lie never forgot a supporter's face, or failed to rcmcmbi r h.s special predilections, and his icrsniml magnet ism was felt not merely by Ins iiitihi.i.c s. but by every one who heard him snak or tiled past him and shook his hand during the receptions of his electoral campaigns. Next, he wis one of the most accom plished and .judicious of "old parlia mentary hands." (Ie always managed to hit the house "just between wind and water." and lo niuku each shot tell. His speeches seemed compounded of a mix ture of wit and inspired common sense, and though often two rhetorical they exactly suited the temper of the audi ence to which they were addressed.

There is one newspumr man in this town who is HTsnmilly interested in the silver views of Secretary of the Treasury Foster. It happened in this way: The newHpuer man was detailed touHend the banquet of the Itepnblicuu club at Dtilmonico's recently. Secretary Fos ter was there us one of the distinguished guests. Like many men of public fame, in donning bis dress suit Air. Foster bad forgotten to put anything in Ins mcketM. After making bis speech be hastened to the coutroom and passed in his check for his coat and hut He was uunoyed to find that he bail uo change with which to reward the servants. Turning to the foresaid newspasr man, he exclaimed: "By Ueorgo! Charlie. I haven't got a cent Lend me tJ quarter." The bit of silver was no sooner placed in bis hand than one of the prominent bunkers of Wall street called out. "Here, Charlie, lend me a quarter also." Charlie was pleasantly I in pressed by the fact that men of money are not always men with money. Now York Times. No lloccacclan Iliiusn For the Quean.

The real locality of the lutur is behind the town of Ficsole, It is, however, very likely that Boccaccio himself did live for a time at the Villa Palmieri. which is a long. low, whito structure in the Italiun style. It is situated on elevated ground, commanding a fine view of Florence and tho pluin of the Arno. The gardens are very fine and abound with flowers. PalJ Mull Uazelfi. About Two Kn-ll.li I'ol.

This description of the natives as they appeared to the English colonists in Maryland was written in lOtti: They are very proper toll men of per son; swarthy by nature, but much more by art; painting themselves with colours in oyle, like a durkn red, which they doe to keep tho gnatts off. As for their faces they have other colours at times, us blew from tho 1100 upward and red down ward; somewhat contrariwise, in great varietie and in very gastly manner. They have no beards till they coiiie to lie very old, and therefore draw from each side of their mouthes lines Ut their eares to represent u lieurd. Their up parell generally is deere sky ns and some furre, which they wear liko loose man tels; and yet under this, about their middle, all women and men, ut man's estayte, wero roundo aprons of skyns, which keeps them decently covered, go that, without any offense to chant eyes, we may converse with them. All the rest of their bodies are nuked, and at times some of the youngest sort of both men and women have just noth ing to cover them. Tlie natural wit of this nation is very quick and will con ceive a thing very readily. They excell in smell nnd taste and have far shurper sight than wo. If these people were once Christi-ins (as by some signs we have reason to think nothing hinders it but wuut of language), it would be a right virtuous and renowned nation. Huw They Kolibeil the Marcjul.. In the old range cuttle boom days, when money from foreign lands was pouring into the west like water, there were a good many sharp tricks prac ticed in delivering cuttle. It is recalled that tho Marquis da Mores, who tried to cut such a conspicuous figure as a revo Intiouizur of the American meat trade, and who later became notorious as a duelist, was badly sold. While in Da kota he bought 10,000 heud of cattle from two Englishmen. They were first class cuttle and cost forty dollars ahead. When these two Britons delivered tho cows they worked one of the neatest "skin" games that was ever beard of. Medora, you know, sits in a valley, with table lands en each side. Well, the Englishmen ran 3.000 head of cattle in on the marquis and collected for 10,000. The way they did it was by running the same 3,000 twice around the hill, De Mores never "tumbled" until he had paid his $100,000 and the tnorry cockneys were bound for South Amer ica. It was a clear steal of $200,000, but the marquis didn't make much bone bout it. He had plenty of money and didn't care. Chicago Drovers' Journal. On.yly Mrelii-tl I m tit Is rati ta, A picluresiiie party of Italian Immi grant landed at the barge olllco the Oiher day. Them wero about a doxeo men nml six or eight women. 'I lie men wore clothing of a rough, hull colored material, wiih scarfs and cups nf bright er Iiiici. The women displayed a variety of gay colors, -red. yellow, blue nnd pink tireiloiiiinaliu j. Each woman was ham lieadeil, but each wore ribbons in hiT liair ninl n bright colored shawl nrnprnn. The strangers attracted n great deal of attention as they straggled up lirnndwny from the I lull cry with their bundles.

At Itector street they saw a flower stand, nnd half 11 dny.cn of the women gathered about it. nnd gave vent to Volu ble expressions of delight. They dragged some of the men licforo the stand nnd gesticulated violently. The men tried to pull away frnm them, but could not. After awhile snme pieces of money came out of the men's poekids,' nnd wiih much eagerness and chattering the wom en selected hum flower apiece.

A l''rl'iul of llm I'nrnirr. The hop growers of Otsego county have discovered what iiaturali Is have long been trying to make farmers under stand that skunks, instead of Itciug their enemies, as they formerly Hiipioscd are among theirmost useful friends. As one bop grower expressed it. "Nowadays we protect skunks as carefully as wn do song birds." Hop yards, it npK-nrs, am infested by certain kind of grub which gnaws off the tender vines at the root, and this grub is tho favorite fixsi of tho skunk. As a general thing the skunks sally forth at nightfall, but now and then they are to be seen at work in broad daylight. Tho proceeding is nn interesting oun to watch. 1 The skunk Is-gins his quest on the edge of tho yard, where he cis ks his head over a hill of bops and listens. If a grub is at work upon one of tho four trailing vines, his quick ear is sure to hear it. At once ho begins to paw up the earth, and presently ho is seen to uncover tho grub and swallow it with unmistakable relish. ( Then he listens again, and if he hears 1 nothing proceeds to the next bill. And ! so ho goes on till be has hud his fill. Now that tbo skunks are no longer ' molested, they have liecomo compar.v ' tively fearless. Sometimes, we are told, they keep up their operations even while tho cultivator is driven lietwcen the rows. Cor. New York Tribune. The Work of a Ixinilon Write. "T. P." stands alone among popular journalists in that practically all his work is done for one paper. The Weekly Sun, of which ho is the founder and ed itor. He knows as well as any onn the value of his own pen, and ho takes cur to write the most important parts of the paper himself and to append his famous initials to all his work. A casual glance through a tinrnljerof the paper will serve to show the amonnt and variety of his weekly labors. First there is a review of the "book of the week," which invariably extendi over five closely packed columns. Thi article, always conspicuously brilliant, would be a good two days' work for any writer. Then there are the editorial notes from 0110 to two columns; an inter view with some celebrity, one column; theatrical Titiques, two or three col umns, and lastly a few paragraphs on tho correspondence page. All these aro sigi.ed "T. P." Yet Mr. O'Connor con trives to keep in tho forefront of the political battle and also to v.'rito an ay casional book, London Tit-Bits. I Two Charge. There was a suit tried in the United States circnit court at Raleigh some years ago in which a Baltimore commis sion house was plaintiff and General Bryan Grimes, who led the last charge at Appomattox, was defendant. Judge Bond, who presided, was strongly anti southern during the war and a citizen I of Baltimore. The luto Governor Fowle, I who was a very eloquent lawyer, repre sentea Generul Grimes, and in his ap peal to the jury luid full stress on the character and record of his client and dwelt eloquently on the "last charge at Appomattox." Coming ont of the court, he said to the opposing counsel (now Judge Fuller of tlie United States land cluims court). "Fulle r. thut lost charge at Appomattox has got mo the jury." "Yes," said Fuller very quietly; "and that last churge of Judgo Bowl bus got me the verdict." And so it proved. I Green Bag. Various ttourc of Silk. Silk worms are not the sole source of the production of silk; it is also obtained from several vegetable substances, but of an inferior and less durable descrip tion. Excellent colored silk is obtained from the prepured and finer fibers of tho bum boo, which is much in demand for . clothing in tropical countries from its lightness and porosity. Another form of ilk is obtained from the pods of the silk cotton tree, of which there are several Varieties In existence, the material ob tained from them being known aa vege table silk.
