Tiik part of the report of the Ii.terna
Revenue Commissioner dealing with the
subject of olemargarinc is by no means
the least interesting portion. One fact
brought out is that the Commissioner has
not been called upon to make any decis
ion relative to tne he-Utimiluess of any
sample of the article, lie has, however.
kept carefully informed as to the kind
and character of the ingredients employed
in its manutacture. lie fluids, what has
probably been discovered by most peo
ple who have given attention to t lie sub
ject, that evasions of the regulations re
garding tne marking ot packages are
committed much more frequently by re
tail dealers than by manufacturers. II
regards it as desirable to encourage the
sale of manufacturers' packages by retai

iieaicrs, ana in order to ewourig
such sale he recommends that the law b
so amended as to authorize the sale by
retail dealers of original manufacturers'
packages, or ot small quantities from
original stamped packages. The Com
missioner's report is a more favorable
one than was looked for bv nianv who
promoted the oleomarinc law. There is
some likelihood that the question will be
raised before congress at the next session
It is expected that the advocates of re
strictive legislation will demand an
amendment of the measure, as to make it
more stringent, while the oleomargarine
men are encouraged by the tone of the
report to hope for an amendment of the
law such as will make it less burdensome

TIIK ATLANTIC CAMPAIGN.
I he negro vote in Atlanta whs the
bone of contention throughout the re
cent campaign, and in the electior, ac
cording to the returns, the "wets" caught
a majority of th j votes of the colored
Perhaps this whisky issue is to be the
means of opening the polls of the south
to the colored men. In Fulton county,
dv-'orgia, on Saturday a majority of the
white electors voted the "dry" ticket.
The advocates of the "wet" policy if ere
driven to the black vote. It would be a
singular thing if the rights of the colored
voter in the south were finally to be se
cured to them through the contest of the
s iloon to hold its place. Rut such result,
whatever other deplorable issue it might
rais;;. would dispose of the issue of a
solid south, and good would speedily
come of it.
It is noticeable, also, that a potent ar
gument with the colored mm in the
Atlauta saloon cautest was that the dis
placement of the saloon was a discrim
ination against poor men was intended
to keep the negroes from getting drink
while it left other channels open to men
of more influence and money. Undoubt
edly much of the antagonism against the
saloon in the south has been borne of
desire to protect the negroes from the
abuses of strong drink, by which they are
rendered unreliable and disagreeable, if
not dangerous. The "wets" take advan
t ige of this to use them to perpetuate
the life of the saloon.
So it appears that in Georgia, as in
Iowa and t l-ewhere, the paloon at once
goes to work among the ignorant and
the depraved to hold them as its servants
through the strength of their vices.
On the other hand, appeal was made
t( the colored men of Atlanta to vote the
"dry" ticket in behalf of their own best
int.-reti, in behalf of their families, and
in behalf of the good of society generally.
On the one tide, the aj p-tl is to the
letter nature of the man, and on the
other the appeal is to his baser passion.
Tl.e direction of the forces supplies its J
own utHcient commentary.
The "wets" of Atlanta have not won a
proud victory or one that gives them any
security whatever for the future. They J
cannot hold their ground, for they are
tearing down, not building up. The
"drys" of Atlanta have back of their cam
paign all the moral force of the contest,
and they represent the power which,
whereyer planted, will grow, and which
must dominate finally.

it does not, and those who have been say- j Col. xewhanf Sheridan' adjutant general,
ng so have been hoping that it might came riding up from the direction of Appo
mattox and handed the general a iTinmuui
cation. This proved to bo a duplicate of the
not. Prohibition of itself may be a nar
row issue. Hut the issue of strengthen
ing and protecting society is not a narrow
issue. The friends of humanity and
good government are largely on one side
and the enemies of humanity and of good
government are largely on the other.
To be more specific, the heart and con
science of the country are on one side
ond the Fcltishness and moral turpitude
of the country are largely upon the other.
The saloon seeks servitude through de
basement; the opponents of the saloon
look for help in lifting men into the
dignity of honest libe rty. So men who
go with the saloon have the company
and direction of their way provided fo
them. Those who do not like the com
pany or the way must separate themselves
from the saloon desire and influence,
The saloon, therefore, is digging its own
grave, or a deeper and broader one

Now Treatment for Consumption.
The star of Bergeon's treatment waning a
little, new forms of cure for tubercular pa
tients are being found with unabated vigor,
and M. Garcia comes to the front with hy
drofluoric acid. This new method consists
in placing phthisical patients for an hour
every day in a small cabinet which contains
six cubic meters of air that is saturatr-d with
h vdrofluoric acid. This saturation is obtained
by pumping a current of air through & gutta
jK-rcha bottle that contains 100 grammes of
the acid to 300 grammes of distilled water.
The quantity of air pumped in is renewed
every fifteen minutes, as the effect is quickly
The system has been tried for a year past
in a number of cabinets that M. Garcia has
fitted up in a room in his own house, and dur
ing the month of August a hundred patients
were submitted to the treatment. Of this
number, fourteen remained as before, forty-
one were improved, and thirty-five wore
cured, while ten died. It is stated that under
the influence of this form of medication the
attacks e-f coughing diminish and finally
cease. The Koch bacilli cannot resist this
acid, as they at first are found to diminish in
number and soon they no longer segment; at
last they entirely disappear from the secre
tions. The general state of the patients was
much improved, the appetite was increased,
the night sweats ceased, and some patients
treated over a year ago remain well. It seems
that the workmen at the celebrated glass
manufactory at Baccaret Lad first noticed
that the hydrofluoric acid they employed had
good effects on the health of consumptive per
sons. Paris Cor. Ivcw xork jM.edical Journal.
Love SongH in Afghanistan.
Love songs are plentiful with the Afghans,
though whether they are acquainted with
love is rather doubtful. Woman with the
fghans is a purchasable- commodity. She
is not wooed and won with her own consent;
she is liought from her father. The average
price of a young and good looking girl is
from about oOO to 500 rupees. To reform the
ideas Of an Afghan upon that matter would
he a desperate task. When Said Ahmed, the
great Wahab leader, the prophet, leader and
king of the Yusufzai Afghans, tried to abol
ish the marriage by sale his power fell at
once, lie had to nee for his lire, and died an
outlaw. There is no song in the world so sad
and dismal as that which is sung to the brido
by her friends. They come to congratulate
no, to console her, like Jephtha's daughter;
they go to her, sitting in a corner, and sing:
Y- u remain sitting in a corner and cry for us.
Wiiat can vc do for you?
Your father has received the money.
All of love that the Afghan knows is jeal
ousy. All crimes are said to nave then cause
in one of tho three r's zar, zamin or zon
money, earth or women. The third z is, in
fact, the most frequent of the three causes.
Last of the Pequots.
A reporter met on the streets of Birming-
hem, Conn., ashort timo ago, a man who.
was selling clams from a wagon. An inter
view with him developed the fact that he
claims to be the last of the noble tribe of
Pequots, who, in the early days of the settle
ment, occupied tho country about where
Litchfield now stands. The man's name is
Truman Bradley. He is not full blooded.
but claims to be two-thirds Indian. His ap
pearance substantiates his claim. Ho stands
over six feet tall, is straight, broad shoul
dered and bronzed to a coppery hue. His
eyes are black and deep set. His cheek
bones are prominent, his jaws strong and
powerful, his forehead low and broad, his
hair gray, and he has no beard. In conver
sation with him the reporter learned that he
claims to be the sole heir of the Pequots, and
there is $7,000 held in trust for them, which
is now in the hands of a trustee appointed by
the judge of the superior court of Litchfield
county. He will apply to the next legisla
ture for the $7,000, submitting bis proofs for
tho inspection of the committee having tho
matter in charge. ew i ork Evening Sun.

When a felon first begins to make its ap
pearance, take a lemon, cut off one end, put
the finger in, and the longer it is kept thero
letter from Lee which Lieut. Pease had
brought in from Meado'x lines. lye was so
closely pressed that he was anxious to com-
! municaro with Grant by the most direct
means, and as be could not tell with which
column Grant was moving, he sent in one
copy of bis letter on Meade's front and one
on Sheridan's. CoL Newhall joined our
party, and after a few minutes' halt to read
the letter, we continued our rido towards
Appomattox. On the march I had asked tiie
general several times how he felt. To the
some question now he said: "The pain in
my head eomed to leave me the moment I
got Loo's letter."
Tbo road was filled with men, animals and
wagons, and to avoid these and shorten tho
distance, we turned slightly to tho right anil
began to "cut across lots;" but before going
far we spied men conspicuous in gray, and it
was seen that we were moving towards the
enemy's left flank and that a short rido
f arther would take us into his lines. It looked
for a moment as if a very awkward condi
tion of things might possibly arise, and
Grant become a prisoner in Lee's linos in
stead of Lee in his. Such a circumstance
would have given rise to an important cross
entry in the system of campaign bookkeep
ing. There was only one remedy to retraco
our steps and strike the right road, which
was done without serious discussion. About
1 o'clock the little village of Appomattox
Court House with its half dozen houses came
in sight, and soon we were entering its singlo
street. It is situated on some rising ground,
and beyond the country slopes down into a
broad valley. The enemy was seen with his
columns and wagon trains covering the low
ground. Our cavalry, the Fifth corps, and
part of Ord's command were occupying the
high ground to the south and west of tho
enemy, heading him oil completely.
GREETING PHIL SHERIDAN.
Gens. Sheridan and Ord, with a group of
officers around them, were seen in tho road,
and as our party came up, Gen. Grant said
"How are you, Sheridaaf
"Finrt rate, thank you, how are youf
cried Sheridan, with a voice and look that
seemed to indicate that on his part Le was
having things all kis own way.
"Is Lee over there V asked Gen. Grant,
pointing up tho street, having heard a ru
mor that Lee was in that vicinity
"Yes, he is in that brick house," answere
"Well, then, we'll go over," said Grant.
The general in chief now rode on, accom
panied by S her lda , Ord and some others,
and soon CoL Babcock's orderly was seen sit
ting on his horse in the street in front of a
two story brick house, better in appearance
than the rest of the Lymses. Ho said Gen,
Lee and CoL Babcock had gone into this
house a short time before, and he
was ordered to post himself in tho
street and keep a lookout for Gen.
Grant, so as to let him know
where Gen. Lee was. Babcook told me after
ward that in carrying Gen. Grant's last letter
he passed through the enemy's hues and
found Gen. Lee a little raoro than half a mile
beyond Appomattox Court House. He was
lying cSown by the roadsido on a blanket,
which had been spread over a few fence rails
on the ground under an apple tree, which was
part of an orchard. This circumstanco fur-
nisbed the only ground for the widespread re
port that the surrender occurred under an
applo troo. Babcock dismounted upon com
ing near, and as he approached on foot Lee
eat up,with his feet hanging over the roadside
enbankmext. The wheels of the wagons in
passing along the road had cut away the earth
of this embankment and left the roots of the
tree projecting. Lee's feet were partly resting
on these roots. One of his staff officers came
forward, took the dispatch which Babcock
handed him and gave it to Gen. Lee. After
reading it the general rose and said he would
ride forward on the road on which Babcock
had come, but was apprehensive that hostili
ties might begin in the meantime upon the
termination of the temporary truce, and asked
Babcock to write a line to Meade informing
him of the situation. Babcock wrote accord
ingly, requesting Meade to maintain tho
true until positive orders from Gen. Grant
could be received.
HUNTING A HOUSE.
To savo time it was arranged that a Union
officer, accompanied by one of Lee's officers,
should carry this letter through the enemy's
Lines. This route made the distance to Meado
nearly ton miles shorter than by the round
about way of the Union lines. Lee now
mounted his horse and directed Col. Charles
Marshall, his military secretary, to accom
pany him. They started for Appomattox
court house in company with Babcock and
followed by a mounted orderly. When the
party reached the village they met one of its
residents, named Wilbur McLean, who was
told that Gen. Lee wanted to occupy a con
venient rom in some house in the town.
McLean ushered them into the sitting room
of one of the first houses he came to, bnt
upon looking about and finding it quite small
and m eagerly furnished, Lee proposed finding
something more commodious and better fitted
for the occasion. McLean then conducted
the party to his own house, about the best one
in the town, where they awaited Gen. Grant's
The house bad a comfortable wooden
porch with seven steps leading up to it. A
hall ran through the middle from front to
back, and on each side was a room having
two windows, one in front and one in rear.
Each room had two doors opening into the
halL The building stood a little distance
back from the street, with a yard in front,
and to the left was a gate for carriages and
a roadway running to a stable in rear. We
entered the grounds by this gate and dis
mounted. In the yard were seen a fine large,
gray horse, which proved to be Gen. Lee's,
and a good looking mare belonging to CoL
! MarshalL An orderly in gray was in charge
! of them, and had taken off their bridles to
i let them nibble the grass.
Gen. Grant mounted the steps and entered
: tho house. As he stepped into the hall, CoL
Babcock, who had seen his approach from
: tho window, opened the door of tho room on
' the left, in which ho had been sitting with
; Gen. Lee and CoL Marshall, awaiting Gen.
; Grant's arrivaL The general passed in,
: while the members of the staff, Gens. Sheri
dan and Ord, and some general officers who
i had gathered in the front yard remained out

measure, private. In a few minutes CoL
Babeo-came to the front door, and making
a motion with his hat towards tho sitting
