W. C7. Bryant as a Journalist.
N. W. Hazeltine in N. Y. Sun.
To those who know anything of journalimn
it is idle to speak of Mr. Bryant as a great jour
nalist His range of knowledge was not wide,
his judgment was frequently unsound, and he
hid not the rhetorical gifts which commend
opinions to the acceptance of a large audien ce.
It was characteristic of the man that while he
imagined himself to be a purist in the wri fing
of English, and prepared a list of errors w'nich
were to be rigorously excluded from the col
umns of his newspaper, his private letters, and
published writings were thickly strewn "with
solecisms which had escaped his imperfectly
instructed eye. . Few men whose judgment
upon the matter is deserving of respect will
deny that the journal with which his name is
aasooiated was less skillfully edited under Mr.
Bryant's guidance, thap it subsequently was in
the hands of his son-in-law, or than it now is
under the present management The antbor of
"Thanatopsis"- was never able to give his news
paper a large circulation, but its ad-ertine--uients
proved lucrative, and bis profits from
this source ultimately brought him a hand
'Did you ever hear about John Osborn and
hi setter pups?"
On being informed that his listener had not
only not heard of them, but was snrpriscd
that the man owned setter pups, he began:
"John Osborn ran for sheriff in St Taul,
Minn., and while he was working all the boys
wirh his good nature he had frequent calls a
his house, and whenever a man with a fancy
for field sports came the talk always fell upou
a i-eantif nl setter aud her fine puppies, j
" 'Nice puppies, John.
c 'Yob, bullv puppies, ain't they?'
' 'They are the most beautiful Better pups I
ever saw anywhere.' -' '
"Then the" candidate for sheriff would take
,he mm asido, and, in a , confidential tone tell
- You just wait till after election and Til
give-Tou ono of those pups.' .
hia thing had been going ou for a couple
of we kt l,(t one evening a man shut the
door bl vl left the house with the promise of a
pup lii: ?jeriDg iu his ear, when Mrs. Osborn
asked: ' . " .'
" 'John how many puppies are there?'

THE THREE WIDOWS
"Married Jefferson, Wat&lrig
ton and Irnnkltn .
It is an old aayiner, "Whom first W8 lot w
never wed," and this, though not strictly true,
may be applied to Scott, , Byron, George
Washington and many other men of note. Jeff
erson, the author of the Declaration, was sub
ject to early disappointment. Ilia first love
was a Virginia maiden of rsputable family,
named Robecca BurwelL The latter, however,
preferrod a young man named Robinson, and
Jefferson, like moat sensitive youths, keenly
felt tho loss of one whom he most tenderly
loved. He afterwards married Martha Bhel-.
ton, au attractive widow of twenty-two, and
the union provod one of rare happiness. It
lasted, however, only ten years, at
tho end of which Jefferson was loft
a widower with two daughters, four othors
having died in early childhood. Of
these daughters, Maria married John W. Epps,
w hik) Martha booame the wife of Thomas Ran.
dolpfk The latter thus describes the caro
which her father bestowed on his dying wife:
"For four months, during which she lingered,
ho -was never out of her calL A moment be.,
for.e tho closing scene he was led from thfl
fjom in a fainting condition bv his sister, and
"was so overcome that it was feared he would
not recover. He kept his bed three weeks af tei
the funeral and required my constant atten
tion." JotXerson was evidently a man of doep
tenderness; and after bis death there was found
in adrawer a lock of hair from each of hiq
dead children, which he kept as sacred mem
orials. Though only if.) when he lost hit
wifo, he never married again, and re
mained for forty-four years a widower.
Washington and Franklin both married
widows. Tho former fell in lovo with Martha
Custis at first sight, and, having boon disap.
pointed in his expectation of the hand of Mary
Morris, he urpad his suit until it was success
ful. He adopfcod his wife's children and his
married life ki d one of unbroken harmony.
Franklin's case was rather peculiar. During
his early life in Philadelphia ho paid attention
to Miss Read, but Boon afterward went to Lon
don, whore ho remained several years. During
the separation ho neglected Miss Read in a
manner which - he himself afterward con
demned. On 7iia return he found that she bad
marriod, but her husband, who had proved
worthless wr gone on a voyage and supposed
to be dead, franklin's early love returned,
nnd, being re-enforced by sympathy, he asked
her forgiveni'ss and a renewal of her affec
tions, which was readily granted. Jeffer
son was married at the age, of U.),
Washington was 127, whilo Franklin was
only a-. Tho" litter save of his wife: "We
prospered toget her and it was our mutual
study to render each other happy. Thus I
corrected as wu 11 as I could tho error of my
youth." This if .nion continued for nearly forty
veara, and, tho ugh Franklin was the survivor,
he rouainod a -widower. They are buried side
by side iu the. old Philadelphia cemetery, and
a huge slab wfaich covers both graves bears
the feimplesV inscription that Franklin could
dev. so. Vhii fipoaking on this subject it may
he added that American statesmen Lave gen
V rally been mi Tried men, and the presidential
chair has nevdr but once been occupied by a
bachelor. It is) said that Buchanan, like Irving,
was disappointed in his early love, and, if so,
it affords a pardonable reason for Lis celibacy.
Another bacholor politician of some note was
tho late Presto! King, formerly United States
senator and aluo collector of our port. To

"They aro quite a number of so-called giants
on exhibition now in various parts of tho
country, with travelling companies or in
museums, but thoy all bavo weak point3.
This, however, is only natural, for they
are tho result of degeneration. Homo
are conspicuous for their facial im
perfections aud some have extremely largo
hands aud foet, while others are tall and vtry
thin; bo that if it wore possible to roduce them
to a proportionate size they would be like or
dinary persons. Oiang, the Chinese mon
strosity, has a mouth that could not bo en
largod'without danger to his ears. His actual
height is about six feet six inches, and his
shoes are made in such a way aa to raise
him about five inches higher. In the
first place, ono inch is devoted to
sole-leather, then inside the shoes
are a number of insoles; ho puts on one stock
ing, then more insoles, and over all another
stocking, and then the outer shoe. Th6se
make him show for nearly eight feet if you
accept that measurement. He wcara a yoke
on his shoulders to give them a show of
breadth. He ia well gotten up and will
pass for an average giant. The larg
est people in this country are Mr. and Mrs. M.
T. Bates. Mrs. Bates is tho taller of the two,
being seven feet one inch in height Her hus
band measures six feet eleven inches. There
died recently in Union County, Ohio, a man
six feet eight inches high, but thero are no
others in the United States of that height"
Colonel Goshen himself may bo called a
gl,ant He is fortv-seveu years "bid, and is pre
sented to tho public aa being eight feet high ;
but that is showman's measure. He himself
does not claim to be more than seven feet
three inches. Hia girth around tho waiat is
six feet -
To bo a giant does not imply that one must
consume a fabulous quantiity of food, or drink
water by tho barrel or anything of tliat kind.
On the contrary, they are Bonietimeu quite
delicate eaters and drinkers.
