ferenco with its well beinji. Its work was not
clone when the country was occupied, and na
tiiro, conscious of the fact, strives to liuish it.
J.elntid tlio river is another power and the
stream blindly obeys the laws laid down for its
government. Men have mastered many of tho
prooicms or nature. j.i:e laws that regulato
the Mowing of water are pretty well understood;
out wuo among an tno men who have devoted
th---ir lives to tho study of tho Mississippi can
truthfully say that they understand the work
ings of tho river Not one of them. Tho
works that the Kovernmant emrinoers erected.
confidently erected, last fall and winter, have,
if tho telegraphic despatches and private let
ters received from tho valley are reliable.eunk
benoath tho yellow waters, and with them mil
lions of public money.
Under tho disguise of a scheme to improve
tho navigation of tho Mississippi river, there
is to-day in the lower valley an intense pur
pose 10 oomin government am to reclaim tho
lands of the Yazoo, Tensas, and Atchafalaya
basins, tow southern men who are acquainted
with the river believo that its navigation can
bo improved. I have vet to seo a wilot w ho
does not sneer at tho childish attempts mado
by tho engineers to control tho water. Almost
without exception tho pilots assert that tho
river cannot no controlled, and that its naviga
tion cannot bo improved. But all southern
men who live ou the alluvial lands believe
that it is preferable to have national money,
meaning northern money, expended on tho
building of levees, than it is to Lave tho money
of riparian owners sink into the water during
The sentiment of the south is that the north
destroyed their property during tho war, and
now, the southern planters being ur.ablc to
build protecting works it would be but just
for the north to rebuild such works as wcro
destroyed, and to replace tho levees that havo
slipped into the river. Conscious that tho
northern people would not submit to tho con
templated appropriation of public moneys to
protect private property, tho scheme of im
proving the navigarion of the Mississippi, a
national highway, was brought forward. Tho
arguments advanced in support of this meas
ure are the suppositious ones that the promo
ters of tho soheme supposed were current in
the western agricultural states. The truth is
that the western farmers have lon since
ceased to talk about the Mississippi as an av
enue of trade. Thev know that it runs at right
angles to the channels of trade, and they also
know that tho transportation charges on
froight carried on a river steamer are higher
than on well-managed railroads.
Jielow tho mouth of tho Ked river tho Mis
sissippi needs no improvement, tho water be
ing of great depth. In the face of this fact
the larger portion of the S1.:J50. IX appropri
ated to the repairing of levoes to improve tho
navigation of tho stream was expended below
lite mouth ot the iiou river, ihis sum was ap
propriated bv the commission under the advice
of interested local proprietors. The fact that
national money was to be expended for the im
provement or navigation was heralded through
out tho valley, and, unable to restrain their
greediness, the planters Cocked to the points
where the commission sat. and eagerly set
forth their views on the method of improve
ment that should bo adopted. The only prac
tical method of improving the navigation of
the Mississippi, according to tho statements of
these planters, is to protect each and every
cotton held that abuts on the river.
Among other schemes that our southern
brothers now talk about and advocate is one to
have the government, build high and wide
levees, in long tangent lines, on both sides of
the river. This extensive work is planned to
cost at least SJti0,(K.K,(ti0. The merry southern
people propose to have these levees built noma
distance back from the river front, so as to
have them comparatively safo from being un
dermined. When the government has com
pleted these costly works it is expected to turn
them over to a southern company to be used
as roadbeds for railroads. The railroad com
panies are to agree to keep.the levees in repair.
The proposition, of course, is absurd; but
numbers of intelligent southerners advocate
it They ntterly ignore the fact that wheu
they express a desire to lay a railroad
track on a levee, built to improve the
navigation of tho Mississippi, they acknowl
edge that steamboats cannot compete with
railroads. They wisely avoid, too, the subject
of the drainage of the lands that. might lie be
tween the proposed levee and the river. The
drainage of all the alluvial lands iu the valley
is away from the river. The laud slopes back
toward tho hills. Tho buildiug of levees in
long tangent linos would cut off the bends and
and much of the land lying immediately on tho
river from their natural drainage, and render
the ltnds worthless. Clai::.s for damages
would arise and the total damage that would
bo claimed would probably exceed the cost of
the works. If tho government intends to at
tempt to improve the navigation of the Missis
sippi by levees, it must build along tho edges
oi mo nver; and then tne ntie or tho bill
should be changed to read. "A bill t j re -laim
tho alluvial lands of the Mississippi valley ireo
of expenses to the owners."

may, w ithout extravagance of speech, be called
uni pio. lie was born seventy years ago; wa
a great lawyer in New Orleans, a senator, a
Confed rate, an outlaw. As an outlaw he
tame to England, joined the English bar,
and in six years - was its leader.
No Uwyor in all English history has loft
such a mark of learning and author
ity upon legal proceedings and records. His
arguments are quoted with tho authority of
judges. He camo to England penniless; in
seventeen years lie Las accumulated a fortune.
His fees in ono case reached $50,000. Liti
gants often marked hi3 brief with a fee of $'.'0,
000. His success began at once. He soon be
came the busiest lawyer in all the kingdom
He was too busy for society. His family has
boon in Talis much of the time. Mr. Boujumiu
has lived in London. Ho dined at his club,
usually as lato as tj o'clock in the evening, and
lived iu chambers. Ho is much esteemed in
Imdoii society, and might have been a social
lion. His health has somewhat given way, but
he ami his medical advisers hope for speedy
convalescence now that he has given up all
the work and worry of his profession.
Mr. lionjamiii was in the swim. "In the
swim" iu England moans wealth and society,
lxird Ileaeonanuhl had as a medical man a phys
ician who was a cross between an old school
and a new school, and now his practice is enor

therefore every other family to whom they can

admires Millais' picture, and Millais' fortune is

In America we otteu regret the seeming scan
dal to which our press gives circulation. Wo
do open tho sow ers of social lifo into our draw
ing rooms, but one cannot long live in England
without feeling that this'publicity given to per
sonal character and movements in American
society has a very w holcsomo side to it
In England if a man is successful the rule is
that it atones for all sorts of moral delinquen
cies and uastiness. A Church of England
clergyman paid to tho proseut writer a few
weeks ago that it was perfectly well known
that a member of tho present ministry, who is
an unmarried man, keeps np a family estab

ture to state tho fact if it be ono. Yet were
it universally known to bo a faot it would not
in tho loast affect his social standing. A hungry
lad of 14 is sentenced -to a year's imprison

rich man's kitchen-garden by ono of these
bloated lay magistrates in England! But wore
ho tho sou of a rich man it would be deemed
only a "lark."
If you fail get out of England. This is no

pictures which, in a progressive scries.showed
tho gait of a trotting horse; bnt tho riso, prog

surprising outlaudishncss that is to be seen iu
the stepping of tho horse. It is pretty all the
way through, and well 6he knew it, or she
wouldn't have given tho camera a show. She
is not an actress who did it to exhibit" her skill
in grimacing, but a society belle, vain of her
lovely and expressive face, and anxious to put
its most charming aspect into an imperishable

then it will be so interesting to see now I

Her real incentive, however, was not in fu-

According to Dr. Tuke, the English hygien-

overwork. They are the main causes of hys

The Force of Kiafnra Falls
Transmitted bj Wire to
New York Journal. '
News comes from France that M. Deprejs, a
well known electrician, has discovered a means
of transmitting powor by electricity. At a re
cent pnblio trial of his syeUin he sent six-horse
power to a point twelve miles distant and ten
horse power to another twenty-one miles dis
tant, over an ordinary iron wiro. The loss of
power while onrouto was in each caso fifty per
cent, or, in other words, one-half the powor
applied at one end was recovered at the other.
Tho future possibilities of this discovery can
not ho overestimated. By its application the
powor developed by a ranning stream or water
fall may be gathered and brought by telegraph
to tho heart of a populous city whore fuel is
dear and used to turn the shafting of factories
and to light streets and dwellings. Power gen
erated by steam at the coal mines, where fuel
is cheap, may be sent to distant points which,
Leing off the line of the railroad, have hither
to boeu supplied with coal only at exorbitant
rates. A largo manufacturer in New York
could utilize tho power of a waterfall in the
Cateklll mountains for the purpose of turning
the shafting of his mills. Prof. Siemens after
visiting this country made an address
bofore the Glasgow university upon this
subject Speaking of America and
her water-courses, he said that tho
day was not far distant when tho
power of Niagara Falls, far greater than that
of all the mills iu this state, would be dis
tributed from city to city by means of elec
tricity, and the great force at present running
to waste would tako the place of the steam
now generated by the daily combustion of
hundreds of thousands of tons
of coaL His idea was that the power gener
ated by the fall of tho Niagara river should be
made to turn turbine wheels, and these be con
nected with largo electric generators. Tho
electricity thus developed should be gathered
and sent down through the middle of the state
by moans of a great cabin, or more properly
speaking, an eleotric main. Thus the entire
power required to run all tho factories in tho
eta to might be taken off by tapping this main
at various points.
ANOTHEE " SELF-MADE " MAN.
Tabor' Trip From Muiall more Ip
Senate-and Doivn Again,
Cincinnati Commercial Gazette.
Five years ago this spring, Senator Tabor
was a poor man keeping a small store in
gulch near Lcadville. Two acquaintances.ono
of them a shoemaker, persuaded him to
mining partnership. Tabor was to furnish the
"grub stake, "that is,a fow tools and provisions,
and the two other men were to do the digging.
The shoomakor and his friend went up the hill
a little way and began work. Tabor thought
the spot selected for operation unpromising,
and threatened to withdraw from tho comhina
lion ; nut uis partners had the tools and pro
visions, and kept on digging. They very soon
found ore, and Tabor bought thorn out In
six mouths he had sold between $:XX),000 and
$400,000 worth of ore. Tho mine thus opened
is known as Little Pittsburg, and was tho basis
of Tabor's fortune, which is said to amount to
$10,000,000. In IftTO-'.-O, ho served as lieuten
ant governor of Colorado, which was his first
Eolitical honor. Then he became am
itious to go to the United States sen
ate as the successor of Henry
ju. lener, wiio went into the
cabinet, but tho prize eluded him on account
of the scandal which was caused by the suit
tor maintenance brought iy his deserted wife
to him during tho twenty-iivo years they spent
in humble circumstances. The court, it is
pleasant to know, decreed that she should be
supported in a manner suited to her husband's
wealth, labor finally go: into the senate for
the term of one month as the successor ot
Secretary Teller's successor. Miss Lizzie Mo
Court, to whom he has been twice married, is
the daughter of a custom tailor living iu Osh-
kosh, W is. She married Harvey Doe, the son
oi a weamiy inmoerman. iney went to Don
ver to live, where her husband lost all he had
in an unfortunate mining speculation. It is
said to have been for this reason that his wifs
sought a divorce within a year after their mar
riage. In the meantime she had become ac
quainted with Tabor. Since she captured him
nor parents nave moved iroin their humble
home in Oshkosli, and are now in tho enjoy

Cristobal Colon'w Tomb.
Columbus or Cristobal Colon, as we mutf
say at Havana if we wish to be understood
died at Santo Domingo, but his remains wen
subsequently removed to Havana and interred
in the cathedral, where they now repose be
neath a pillar within" tho altar. And properly
proud are tho Havanese Spanish families ol
their great fellow-countrynun by adoption
whoso last resting p'.act is with them.
Beneath a rathoi doubtful bust of the great
discoverer is a marble tablet set in the pillar,
aud inscribed with the following characteristic
Spanish epitaph iu the old-time tongue of
"O, Rostos y ymagen del
Grande Colon! Mil siglos
durand gtiardado en la urna
y en la remembranzade nu
O, remains and likeness of great,
Columbus! Let a thousand cen
turies hold theo, guarded sacred
ly in thy urn and in the memory
of our nation.
More correct to life, it ia asserted, is the
statue of Columbus in the patio of the captain-general's
palace a few squares below tne
cathedral. Tnis statue is also of marble, lifo
size, with the right hand pointing to a globe
set by the left toot that globe which he was
Eersecuted for believing to be round and not
at and a chart The head and face are those
of a man forty-five or fifty years of age; and
the countenance indicates a curtain pa.the.io
faith and purpose, half -buried and struggling
beneath tides on tides of trouble.
No one can for a moment look upon that face
and believe that the life of this man was a
happy one. Such a face is a silent and lasting
reproach to the age which it looked upon.
Stopping Ensines by Electricity.
An electric apparatus for closing the valve
of an engine and thereby stopping it, is now in
some of the large mills at Dundee, in Scot
laud. In describing the apparatus at work,
The Dundee Advertiser says: "The huge en
gine in Manhattan works (CoL Sandeman's)
working at from six hundred to seven hundred
horso power, and driving a fly wheel of about
thirty-live tons weight, formerly took two min
utes to come to rest after the steam had been
taken otT. This apparatus has been fitted to it,
and tho ponderous engine is now brought np
in thirty seconds. To see this powerful, ma
jestic piece of machinery, the developer of
power for a large range of works, almost im
mediately brought to a standstill ty the mere
touching of a button at the far end of the
building is an impressive illustration of the
easy control of enormous force by wisely or
dered arrangements. To mill owners the
utility of the apparatus will be evident"
Xo Type-Writing for Him.
The Autophone company conduct all of their
correspondence by mans of a type-writer.
The cornnany had occasion to send four or
five letters to an agent 'way out in Wisconsin,
and they were amused a few days ago to re-'
ceive one from him closing with these words.
"You neodn't print any more letters that yon
send me, for I want you to understand that I
can read writing."
Among the men seeking election to tho
French legislature at the hands of Gambetta'a
old Belleville oonstitueney is one Berezowski,
a "Labor" candidate. Ue is thus recommended
by Telix Pyat: "Workmen, Berezowski. is a
workman! Republicans, he is a retriciue!
Citizens, he is a convict! Assert, then for
him, by him, in him, the right to work, Uis
right of the republic! Rehabilitata dutvt
