OVK exports of breadstuffs for
the month of June, 18'Jl, amounted
to iflS.UKMl!, against a total of
K.VWa.Oll in the corresponding
month of last year. We are told
that our tariff shuts our bread
stuffs out of the foreign market be
cause Kurope will only buy of the
countries to which she can sell her
products. There is a great deal of
idle twaddle in that sort of talk.
There will be an enormous demand
for our grain in the old world this
year, and there will alwa3's be a de
mand for it there when their crops
are short. It is a question of sup
ply and demand in the grain mar

factured articles over there are not
taken into account when the peo
ple are out in the markets of the
world buying their bread. State
A special meeting of colored
citizens convened Saturday at Lin
coln, where some rather vigorous
resolutions were adopted censuring
(rightly, we believe) the republican
party for its failure to pass the
force bill and protect the colored
man in the South in the exercise of
the full rights and duties of Amer
ican citizenship. We used to think
that a colored man who voted any
thing but the republican ticket was
an ingrate and a knave, but since
certain would-be leaders of that
party have lacked the manhood and
moral stamina to stand by the plat
form and principles of the organi
zation to the extent that the rights
of the colored man are ignored and
trampled under foot in the South,
his very life being at times endan
gered by the democratic clans in
states and counties where tne
colored man predominates, we
have changed cur views. While
it seems harsh to assist indirectly
the party of old slave owners that
held them in bondage and fought
to continue the crime, yet there
must be some pleasure in thus dis
ciplining pretended political
friends. The Omaha Bee. the Lin
coln Call and a few other pretended
republican newspapers in this state
made a vigorous tight against the
force bill, but as their repub
licanism is of a superficial kind it
is not likely that a lesson such as
the colored men of Lincoln propose
to teach would have any impres
sion. Republican supremacy and
true old-time republican principles
when menaced do not interest
papers of the above class. If the
colored folks can get any grim sat
isfaction out of joining the inde
pendents we can't at present find
any excuse for raising an objection.

A BATCH OF FALSEHOODS RE
FUTED. The persistence of the free-trade
liar is wonderful. No sooner is he
confuted as to his false statement
concerning the "higher price of
shoes on account of the tariff" by
evidence that the new tariff has re
duced the duty on shoes, on sole
leather, and on most things used in
the manufacture of shoes, and has
not increased it on anything used
in them, than he utters a new false
hood concerning hats, or some
thing else. His last eilorts arc-disclosed
in the following letter:

As ;o prices oi window glass and

figures on the pi ice of window and
plate glass can not be- given. In
September of W.i;) (the last month of
operation of the old tariff law), glass
was quite high, the factories having
been raising the price regularly
every thirty days for several
months. In January, IS'.tl (three
mouths aiter the McKinley bill had
taken effect), there was a decline in
factory prices of about 2a per
cent. Since then there has been an
increase in price of from ." to 1") per
cent. There is every indication
that there will soon be another long
break in prices. The increase in
the duty on glass had no effect, as
shortly after the law went into
effect there was the decrease of 25
per cent previously mentioned. On
colored glass the duty is almost
prohibitive, and yet the American
manufacturers are about to an
nounce a decrease in the ju ice."
A member of the firm of H. W.
Kisendrath Sc Co., said: "Glass is
.i.ly 15 per cent cheaper than it
was last year. The increase of the
duty on glass has not added to the
rrii -e (if dass. and it may have

been the cause of he reduction."

Clow & Son. said: Lead piping is

not a pound of it is imported. The
price of it varies according to tlu

"Lead in sheets, pipes, shot, gla
zier's lead, and lead wire, 2lo cents

The Temple of the Revolution.
Not every one will understand what is
meant by tho locating of the site of the
Temple of the Revolution at JNewbtu g
mi the Hudson. When the American
army was cantoned near Newburg in
1783 there was deep discontent among
both officers and men because they cot. Id
not get their pay. On March 11, IT'S',
a circular was secretly distributed in or
der to brm' about a somewhat seditious
meeting at what was called a temple, a
little log building newly erecteu there,

bottom of th movement, by which it
was intended that the army shorn u
arouse the fears of congress and the peo-
d thus iret better treatment. The
meeting was fully attended, and u asn

firm in behalf of patience and lo:;.ry

That hair usually becomes gray as we
advance in years is true, but the active
causes for this change must evidently
lie in the organism itself or in the condi

the mere fact of increasing years.
Hyland C. Kirk in New York Times.
One of the old landmarks of St. Louis
is the fine stone mansion on Chouteau
that was once the home of
Thomas Hart Benton. A fact of singu
lar interest in counectien with the old
hnnsfi is that it became in war times the
hpadmrnrters of General Fremont, the
unwelcomed suitor who, against Senator
Benton's wishes, courted and won hi
daughter, now Jessie Bentou b remont.
That the hair is a sort of vegetable ap
tendix to the body is shown in the fact
that it continues to srow as long as it
has a soft cell forming matrix at its
root, and there seems to be no improoa
bility, in many cases reported, where
the hair haa grown after death. The
color of the hair at the time of death is
said to be retained in such cases.

How Iog9 Are Stolen in Haris.
Dog stealers in Paris have two prin
cipal means of getting hold of the ani
mal they want. First of all they find
out the dog's habits, the liberty he is al
lowed, the hours that he takes an airing
either alone or with a servant, and mak.n
their arrangements accordingly. They
eometimes prowl around a house for a
week before obtaining all the informa
tion they need. When they learn where
they can meet the animal, they attract
him by some sort of bait, or make him
follow a bitch, which they lead with a
In a narrow street it is easy to approach
the dog and pat him. If he is not very
savage, the offer of something to eat ren
ders him confiding; the thief, who has a
elipnoose ready, passes it around the
dog's neck, and the game is bagged. On
the boulevards and in the public parks,
where dogs usually follow their masters
cr mistresses without being held by a
cord, the thieves always use a second
animal, and as soon as the dog comes
near enough to the decoy brute the lai-o
