Outiku for May is a handsomely il
lustrated and carefully edited number of
tint pepular magazine of Recjcation,
Travel, Adventure, and of gentlemanly
sport. The new management of Outi-so
is evidently determined to givo its pat
runs a magazine such as uu lover of out
door life can afferd to be withont. Fish
ing, Ball Playing, Hunting, Driving,
Tramping, Bicycling, Yachting, Camping
Canoeing, and kindred spoits, are tho
subjects of special articles, and yet tho
magazine poscssl3 the literary character
of ThtCtntnry and Jla. j'tr'n, and for
Hie parlor table and the Jamil v circle is
as indispensible as its adinii ably conduct
ed contemporaries. I)e Meza, Iteming
ton, Beard, Moejner and Knickerbocker
are tlic cont.ibui.ing ailit, and their
names suilice to show that excellence in
illustration is one of the features of the
number. The poetical selections and
literary sketches are by the best writers
of the day. The Rev. Dr. Black is a
piece of liction of unusual merit, and is
worthy of republication in book form.
The opening of the tithing seasen is ap
propriately remembered by a well written
and handsomely illustrated article on
Trout and Grayling, and every lover of
piscatorial sport who reads the May Out
ixa will sigh for a week's tramp alonj
the waters of Michigan. Old Battles on
the Baseball Field, from the pen of that
well-knewn writer en spo-ts, nenry
Chadwick, is a reminiscence which will
give pleasure to every veteran of the na
tional game, as well as to the juniors
wh now handle the bat. The a. ticles
by the late General Ma-cy, while they
have a particular value for the hunter,
are so well written as to prove interest
ing te every lover of adventure; and the
aitides by Thomas Stevens, Around the
World on a Bicycle, which hav hitherto
ben a feature of Out:o. interest not
only the cycler, but every reader auiious
to leara of the nations in the far East,
whem Stevens saw under advantages
rarely enjoyed by any European traveller
in China and Japan. An Outing Nea.:
New York suggests falling and hunting
grounds, within three hours of the great
metropolis, and is as timely as it is full
of good points for those who, housed in
the big cities, sigh for a breath of fresh
ami pure air. Captain Coffin's article,
T'ie Death-Blow to International Tacht
Kac:ng, w ill command attention not only
in America and England, but wherevrr a
yatchtsman touches land and can buy a
copy of the May Ou xo. How We
Drove to Gales is a very readable sto. v
of a Summer's outing in a buggy, en
joyed by two ladies. Our Canoo Cruise
is n sketch of amusing sport enjoyed by
several gentlewomen. The records pre
sent an epitome of the p:om;neut spott
ing events of the month, wh:le the edi
toral chat and amusing sporting gossip
helps to complete this choice number of

"Headquarters Armv TJ. S., Washing
ton June, 1863,-Dear Sir: Your kind
faror written from New Mex'.co is re
ceived. You understand my position
exactly; it is one I would not occupy
for any mere personal consideration, but
from tho nature of the contest, since the
close of active hostilities, I haye been
forced into it in spite of myself. I could
not back down without as it seems to me,
leaving the contest for power for the
next four years between mere trading
politicians, the elevation of whom, no
matter which party won, would lose
to us largely the results of the costly war
which we hava gone through. Now the
democrats will be forced to adopt 11 good
platform, and put upon it a reliablo man
who, if elected, will disappoint the cep
perhead element of the'r patty. This
yf'.ll be a g'eat poiat gained if nothing
more is accomplished. I feel very great
ful to the officers ef eur army, whose
milUary achievements made my reputa
tion well as thsir own, to know that
they support me in this new fiald. I do
not e-.pect or want active support, but
merely the satisfaction ef knowing what
your letter assures me 01 on your part.
Officers who expect to make the army
their heme for life have to serve under
successive administrations and should
not make themselves obnor.ious to any
party likely to come into power. I shall
not ask you lo come to Washington until
after November, and probably not then.
For myself, I erpect lo be away from
here most of the time, but I stall keep
within telegranh, and being within the
limits of my command, will eierciss it.

The sentence, "I could not back down,
without, as it s-ems to me, leaving the
contest for power for the next four ysars
between mere tiading politicians, the ele
vation of whom, no matter which party
won, would lose us largely the results of
the costly war which we have just gone
through,,r is something for the American
people to considsr at the present day.
Give us a nomination for this office once
honored by a Lincoln and a Grant that
will be abeve the mere "trading politi j
clan" a man of national reputation
without a spot or blemish upon his pcli-
tical life, and the glorious Republican
party will once more unturi its uanner
only to be feUowed by victory all along
Another tb:ng in this remarkable let
ter, and one showing the extreme mod-
csty of tho great commander, is this: "I

of this or any other age giving all the
credit and glory of his magnificent ca

such was Grant in war or peace.
The modes of death's approach aro va
rious, and statistics show conclusively
that more persons die from disease of the

probable that everyone, without excep

Germs into the system and where these
trcrms fall 11 Don suitable soil they start

the throat and if allwwed to continue their
ravages they extend to the lungs produc

ing Catarrh. Now all this is dangerous
and if allowed to continue will in time
cause death. At the onset you must act
with promptness; allowing a cold to go
without attention is dangerous and may

A NIGHT WITH DICKENS.
M ENGLISH REPORTER TELLS AN
The Famoui Novellat Points Out tho
Placoa Where Ha Found His Charac
ters Meeting Dick Swlveler and II111
Sykea Little Nell.
"Dickens ! Yes, in his way he was a Shakes-
pearel" And Lloyd wheeled around in his
chair, and faced me with unnaturally bright
eyes and a flushed face.
I knew that Lloyd was an Englishman, and
I heard that had given him a good jxwition
on a London jiaper when he came to this
country, but he has told me very little about
himself. How the name of Dickens cropped
out in our conversation I cannot now re
member, but when it was mentioned Lloyd
"I spent a wonderful night with him once,"
be said, lighting a fresh cigar, "and when
vou mentioned his name it all came back to
mo It was in '58 or '59. At that time I had
tho police department on The South London
Journal. Without stretching it at all, I
think I may say that I had niado some little
reputation for myself.
"Well, to cut a lone story short, I was
working away at my desk one evening, when
Inspector Davis came in.
" 'What do you say to going tho rounds
with me to-nightT said the inspector.
" 'Thanks,' I replied, 'but I am rather busy
and cannot very well go.'
" 'Sorry,' responded the inspector; 'I am to
take Mr. Dickens along, and I took it for
granted that you would want to go.'
" 'Charles Dickens!' I shouted. 'Is he really
going with youT
" 'That is tho arrangement,' said the in
spector. 'Can't you moot us at Bull's at 11 f
"You may rest assured that I promised. I
wrote several notes to my reporters, and
some minutes before 11 1 turned up at Bull's,
a third rate restaurant on Oxford street. In
spector Davis and another gentleman had
iust finished their supper. Of course, the
other gentleman was Sir. Dickens. When I
was introduced to him he drew mo aside in a
" 'Newspaper manf ho said. 'Well, I like
all newspaper men. I ought to, you know,
for I hod a devil of a time myself as a re
"I made some sort of an answer, but Mr.
Dickens went on to say:
" 'After all, you newspaper men, you re
porters, ore the real novelists of the day.
Your realistic stories of the comedies and
tragedies of life cannot be surpassed.'
" 'how is tho time to catch 'em, said the
inspector, looking at his watch.
"Tho programme for the nightembraeed a
ramblo through some of the by streets be
tween Holborn and Oxford streets. Without
tho inspector it Avould have been a dangerous
trip. Tho first place we visited was a thieves'
lodging house. Fully 100 men were stretched
on tno lioor, most or tnem asleep, Dut some
were wide awake. One of the lodgers seized
Mr. Dickens by the lapel of his coat.
'"D your ho growled, 'what do you
" 'Ask me that question to-morrow and Pll
answer you,' said Mr. Dickens, with a laugh,
and he handed the fellow his card.
" 'islast my CA-esr exclaimed the man.
Well, sir, ycu are among frionds here. I
Eay, Air. iJicitens, may 1 sena out for some
ale or something?'
" 'No, we can't wait,' replied the inspector,
4we must visit other places, and you wouldn't
like to bother Mr. Dickens.'
" 'Divil a bit of it!' exclaimed an Irish
man, who had overheard the conversation,
'but I must shake bands wi you.'
"After a few more handshakes we left and
wont out into a purer atmosphere. A gin
palace stood in our way and a sudden thirst
" 'Come in, boys,' said Mr. Dickens, 'if we
aro going to make a night of it we must pre
pare for it.'
"Wo had a jolly tune Inside. Mr. Dickens
chaffed the barmaids, and they giggled like
anything. Inspector Davis, too, was at his
best. But when he left, the inspector must
have whispered something, for one of the
barmaids ran after us and gave' Mr. Dickens
a little flower, saying, 'Oh, sir, you have
done so much for us I'
'The inspector nudged me, and I thought
about it, and 1 am thinking about it yet.
'At one place Mr. Dickens was in high
glee, lie pointed out a young leilow in a
tawdry suit of clothes, and asked us if he
was not a regular Dick Swiveler, and the
man did seem to fill the bill exactly.
" 'There is Bill Sykes,' he said at the last
place we visited, a low cellar, in the very
'The man waa the very picture of Bill
Sykes, but he overheard Mr. Dickens, and
came forward in a belligerent way.
'Stand back there!' said Inspector Davis,,

'I know you,' answered the ruffian, 'but I
am going to mash this fellow's nose.'
"'Mr. Dickens, this is Mr. Chick Dyke,'
said the inspector, laughing.
" 'ot our Charles Dickens!' exclaimed the
" 'The same,' was the answer.
"Well, that Bill Sykes fellow almost
hugged Mr. Dickens. And they were all
but the insr.torstoPpedhim and promised
to call m the daytime. He said that it was I
dangerous to show money in that quarter at
'In tho lost house we visited there was a
little golden haired girl curled up in the arms
of an old man.
" 'There is little Nell, I broke out.
" 'You are right,' Mr. Dickens answered.
as he pressed my hand. 'We must look after
her to-morrow, and after seeing her we had
better go. I feel broken up.'

street and had a high old time at a chop
house until the morning, .air. JJicKens was
as jolly as a man could be. He gave us no
end of good advice, and even approved of my
scheme of going to the United States.
