nothing but praise I hoard from republican

this country when gentlemen had a chance
for nomination; today they have none, for
no gentleman would consent to outer Into a
scramble for olUce. The only oxeuso for tho
unseemly and indecent rush for office by
every Tom, Dick and Harry, Is spoils, noth

treasurer, sheriff, register of deeds, and sumo
other county office offer too great a tempta

should receive more. Instead ot this, we see

their term of office. This i all wrong, A
good salary insure good men all aiound;
and twenty-five hundred dollar a year is
amply sufficient. One ot the most important
office in our city I that of police Judge. Our
people cannot be too careful whom they se

former judge have been retired In disgrace,
one ot them being even sent to the Peniten

A MAGNFCENT ART PRODUCTION.
Much ha boon done In the past decade or
two to ndvnnce tho cause and elivatu tho
tone of art In Amerisa nnd no one who ha
shown tho least Interest need bo told how much
ha been accomplished. Tho latest uchlovment
of Messrs D. Apple ton & Co., tho wull known
Now York and London publishers, i suah n
giant stride in tho direction of progress that
it deserves more than pissing attention at
our hands, a well ns from overy art student
and admirer In tho country. This firm has
just Issued two magulllciont publications,
the first of which, "Recent Ideals of Ameri
can Art," has enjoyed a deservedly wide
IKjpularlty and salo. Tho second nnd most
recent is entitled " Woman In French Art."
It would be difficult to Imagine and still more
difficult to describe tho Inherent beauty con
tained In these works, for no matter how
faithfully the pen protrny, how accurately it
performs It task of word pniuting, il cannot
reproduce the del lento coloring or nrtUtio
outline nnd execution ot the artist's brush.
It is a well nigh Insposslblo undertaking,
"Woman in French Art" 1 a reproduction
ot two hundred and twouty-flve Paris cop-por-platca,
comprising tho Uueet, world ru
uotwted oil paintings nnd water color ot the
most celebrated French artists, including
Millet, Melmonler. Dagnnn Nouveret, Don
guercau, Corot, Julien Dupre, Geroir.o
and others. Tho reproductions are from tho
celebrated establishment ot Goupll & Co.,
Paris, of worldwlde reputation, who have
co-operated with the Messrs Appletou & Co.,
In this work, aud every picture itpiMMin by
spcclnl arrangement with and permission of
the artist who palute lit. The work I n
tiuly magnificent ono, baffling anything
like an adequate description. The mellow
tints and shadings, the perfect contour of
form and feature, the sweetness and tender
ness ot tone, tho rich appearance and abso
n(tely superb perfection of the paintings are
a human marvel. The greatest improve
ments in the art of reproduction are here
apparent. Two years ago such triumphs ot
artlstlo skill would have been utterly Impos
sible. To day scores of prominent artists,
collectors, and comulsseur attest their ap-.
preclation ot It beauty, fidelity and splendor.
The work Is published In twenty-five parts,
each containing three large photogramres,
size about 10x13 Inches, suitable for framing,
and six typogravure. The price Is one dol
lar for each part, payable monthly upon
delivery. Incidentally, it may bo remarked
thst the text, which is written by George
William Sheldon, tho well known American
art critic, is not the least Interesting portion
ot the work which is, altogether, the finest
ever introduced Into Lincoln.

We are pleased to learn that a Biography
of the world's greatest divine, Charles 11.
Spurgeou, of London, is being prepared by
one of America most papular locturei and
pulpit orators, Rov. Russell II. Conwell, of
This must necessarily be n very 1 Ich lok,
and ought to find a place In every family.
No man of the nineteenth century ha so un
iversally won tho heart aud esteem of man
klud as the late Mr. Bpurgeon, and nt the
same time lived so eventful and Interesting
a life. His career has boon full of signal sur
prise and remarkable occurrences,
Mr. Conwell's personal familiarity with
Bpurgeon and his life, together with his
great ability as an author and popularity as
an orator aud minister Is a guaruntea to the
publioof a brilliant entertaining and in
structive book. Next to Mr. Spurgoou's Ta
bernacle In London, Mr. Conwell, perhaps,
preaches to the largest regular congregation
ot any minister In the world, and in mny
riwu hi work in Pidladelphla so closdy
nwemblea that of the great London divine
that he Is not infrequently called the Bpur
geon of America,
Before entering tne ministry Mr. iuuswi
was a lawyer, a great traveler, a journalist,
and author of several popular books.
"Conwell's Life of Bpurgeon" will undoubt
edly be regarded as the standard biography
of the great Loudon Preacher, nnd Is sure to
have an linmeiue sale.
This work U being isiued by the well
known Ann of Hubbard Bros, of Phlladel-
and will lie sold by subscription.

A number of years ago I suggested
to one of my clients that ho place an
advertisement for goods used exclu
sively by men In a paper supoed to
be read exclusively by women. Tho
advertisement appeared ; It continued
in that paper several consecutive
years. The actual mail cash sales,
coming directly from that advertise
ment, were two or threo times ns
great, reckoning proportionate cost,
than came from the same advertise
ment in any of the hundred paers
my client was advertising in. Bince
