WiLTEK 2- Ghkhiiam stands for re
publicanism as it was in its earlier and
better dajs. lie is sound on every ques
tion of party doctrine, and is honest,
public spirited and independent. Under
liis lead the republicans could make as
enthusiastic and agresivo a campaign
as they made in lbCO under Lincoln.
Mis record is clear, clean and inspiring.
There is nothing in it which calls for
apology or explanation. His candidacy
would harmonize the party. The repub
licans who were repelled by the nominee
of IS '4 would return to the party if
Greshaui were nominated. With Gresli
am at the head of the national ticket
and a good nun selected for second place
tbs republicans would sweep the country
more completely and triumphantly than
they have done at any time since 1872.
THE TALK OF THE DA Y.
"Colonel," remarked si Tammany dele
gate to a County Democrat delegate as
they touched glasses at the Hoffman
House bar yesterday morning. "I notice
by the newspapers that a man was bitten
by a rattlesnake over at Fort Lee on
8unday Just think of it! Rattlesnakes
running wild within a stone's thow of
this great metropolis."
"O, that's nothing," replied the Colon
el, "why. I tell you, Peter, that if we
don't close up our refreshment rooms
pretty soon, a good many of those
country delegates are going to go back
home declaring that they got their boots
full of snakes in the very heart of New
Peter with a shake of his head re
marked that he guessed that the Colonel
was right. Then the two took a drink
gratefully commemorative of Governor
Hill's high-license veto. X. Y. Tribune.
LIMITED MAIL SSRVIC: TEN
FEET A MONTH.
The evidence that the postal service in
Indianapolis is "th? best the city has ever
had" accumulates. On the 2?th of last Oc
tob?r Charles F. Sayles addressed a letter
to Henry Schwinge, the grocer, at No. 31
Pennsylvania St. It was not delivered
until yesterday six months and three
days after it was mailed. A reliable es
timate of the distance between the place
where the letter was written and where it
it was received is 300 fee or 100 yards.
But this is not the worst. The post-ollice
is right between the two places. From
Jlr. Sayles's office to the government
building is probably four-fifths of the
distance the letter had to go, and ovei
this space Mr. Sayles himself carried it to
the office to mail it. It required six
months and three days for the post-office
force to convey the letter sixty feet. As
the envelope in which the letter was sent
bean do stamp except that of Indianapo
lis, the evidence appears to show that the
juggling was all done this time in jthc
Indianapolis post-office. Indianapolis
HE IS A MODEL DEMOCRAT.
The frantic efforts of Dan Voorhees to
extricate himself from the charges
brought against him by Senator Ingalls
have resulted says the Cleveland Leader
in encompassing the Hoosier Bourbon in
a web of falsehood as tight;y as unwary
fly was ever caught by wily spider. Yor
hees has for many years been known to
be an unscrupulous politician, as abso
lutely devoid of principle as any man in
his party, and that is the worst that can
be said of any human being. He took
his bick p:iy after the salary grab act
Lad been passed aud never returned it,
giving as his reason that he had never
before had so large a sum of money at
one time as $3,000, and that he would he
a fool to give it up. When Senator In
galls charged him with treasonable
speeches during the war and with having
been connected with organizations the
sole object of which was to cripple and
thwart th-i operations of the government
in the war for the Union, Voorhees re
plied by epithets which should cause him
to receive a public reprimand from the
senate. But this agitation of Voorhees1
record will not stop with the senate.
A letter written in 1864 by General
Carrington was published yesterday and
it proves that Dan Voorhee' law office
was a depository for rebel documents,
that Voorhees himself was on terms of
intimate correspondence with Vullandig
ham, and that he was cheek by wl with
the traitors who were threatening the
Union armies in the rear. These facts
and many others have been known for
year, but they never changed the stand
ing of Voorhee in the democratic party.
He was elected to the lower house of
congress and to the United States senate
by democrats who were thoroughly ac
quainted with his record. Treason, sal
ary grabbing, tho denunciation of Union
soldiers and heaping insults upon the
name of Abraham Lincoln were no blem
ish upon his character in the eyes of
democrats. On the contrary, they seem
to have been regarded as a merit. Even
after these facts hayc all been brought
anew to the public mind Voorhees will
return to Indiana, and the Hoosier cop
perheads will turn out to meet him with
a brass band, and shower upon him all
the honors duo to an honest man, which
no on j will pretend Mr. Voorhees is, al
though he is a model democrat. Gazette
THE FUTUIiH DEMAND FOR
It has been asserted by free-traders, and
by those who favor tariff for revenue
only, that we could live cheaper without
a protective tariff, because we could im
port every or any thing cheaper than we
can produce it here. It can be proven
that in many cases by protecting our home
factories home competition has reduced
the cost to the consumer of many articles
to a lower price than they were imported
at or before we mnd them, and this in a
few years, comparatively; and this will,
more or less, be the result in everything
wheu protection has lasted long enough
to produce the same home competition.
In the manufacture of cotton goods the
home mtlls now consume 2,300,000 bales
of cotton per year. At the rate of in
crease in population and consumption
during the past, we will consume, in thirty-five
years hence, seven million bales
per year, or the whole crop of 1887. And
if the world will need our raw cotton in
the future as in the past, there will be
demand for twelve million bales per year,
which the cotton states of the Union can
easily groow and supply. Baltimore

We bear a good deal about the selfishness
and inhumanity of landlords who refuse to
let flats to people with families of children,
but after all there may be another side to
the story. In a bouso agent's office I listened
to an argument between the agent and a wo
man who wanted to rent a flat from Lira.
It was a fiat that I happened to know, in a
quiet house, filled with nice people. While
the argument was going on, another bouse
agent came in ou soiue business or other, and
when be saw the woman beckoned his brother
agent away from her, whispered something
to him and went off. The woman did not
get her lease and went away in high dud
geon. The agent said to mo:
"That is a sample of tho people who write
to the papers about landlords who won't let
flats to peoplo with families. Brown, who
was just iu, rented her a flat. She is living
in it yet, but must move by tho 1st. l't is a
six roomed flat, and in it she and her sister
live, with tiwiY two husbands, eleven chil
dren, three cats and two big dogs, and they
also board two young clerks that work for
their husbands. One of the rooms is a
kitchen, so that these seventeen people, not

What is this "nervous trouble" with
which so man? seem now to be afflicted? If
you will renicuiler a few years ugo the
word Malaria was comparatively un
known, today it is as common as any
word in the English language, yet this
word covers only the meaning of another
word used by our forefathers in times
past. So it is used with nervous diseases,
as they and Malaria are intended to cover
what our grandfathers called Biliousness,
and all are caused by troubles that arise
froai a diseased condition of the Liver
which in performing its functions finding
it cannot dispose of the bile through the
ordinary channel is compelled to pass it
off through the system causing nervous
troubles. Malaria, Bilious Fever, etc.

If the English do, indeed, "take their
pleasures 6adly,n then the Mexicans must
have somewhat of a rolatioiuJiip with- the
former named nation, for these last, notwith
standing the vast amount of vivacious de
scription expended upon their impulsive,
passionate nature and fiery Impetuosity of
behavior, maintain their native reserve and
melancholy in their diversions as consist
ently as if it wero an actual sin, or worse yet,
a breach of educacion (that is, good form,
good breeding) to display enthusiasm over
any matter whatsoever.
The simplest form of social gathering is
that variously known, according to the sec
tion, as retreta, or sercnata, a sort of open
air reunion, or promenade concert, ou the
main plaza usually, at which tho people
gather "to hear the lily white bandsmen
play." Every Mexican city, town, village
or hamlet, above tho limits of a rancho in
dexed, often tho haciendas, even has at least
ono plaza or open square for publio use. The
larger towns nud cities have a dozen or
twenty. These plazas range from the bare,
dusty and unadorned open snaco in the vil
lage, through various grades of scttced and
tree planted perimeter to tho great zovalo
or plaza do armas of the capital city, with
its 6moothly rolled . walks, its grass and
flower plots, its great trees, its smart iron
benches, its fountains ami columns, which
were surmounted by statues before they wero
annexed by an aesthetic minded chief magis
trate (according to tho gotsips), it electric
lights and tho pretentious pavilion for the
musicians who play there thrico a week.
Likewise, in the minor cities, on from one
to two nights weekly, usually Sundays and
Thursdays, sweet music is discoursed by tho
really good bands, ono of which is pretty
sure to bo stationed in every garrison town,
at least. To this levee nl fresco ilock the
ninas and the lagartijos the damsels and
tho dandies mesdeinoiselles nestling coyly
beneath the wing of mother or some other
Most towns in Mexico have an alairtoda, or
species of boulevard; and here, also, ouce or
twice a week in the national capital daily
there is music and a parade more formal and
more dressy than that on the plaza, and
people promenade and drive during the
The lowest in importance of Mexico's
amusements proper are tho titeres a mari
onette performance and in many towns
this is the only public diversion. To those
centers of population which stem to offer
sufficient inducements comes tho circus the
great American circus on its yearly tour
through tho provinces during the off season
in Mexico city. The larger towns are visited
with more or les3 frequency by theatre com
panies, according to the distance from the
metropolis and facilities for transportation,
the accommodations offered by tho local
theatre building, the wealth of the com
munity and the propensity of the citizens for
pleasure. Most of the larger towns, particu
larly tho capitals, havo well arranged
theatres, fairly well patronized, though first
class troupes are rarely seen outside tho
national capital and a few of the larger cities
near by, such as Puebla, Vera Cruz, etc.
Even balls, or tertulias (dancing parties),
would seem tame, "weary, stale, flat and
unprofitable" to the youth of the United
States prone to seek sequestered nooks in
conservatories and coigns of vantage on
staircases, wherein to exchange speeches
more or less confidential and sentimental.
Such a procedure would be social ruin to a
Mexican girl. Tho unwritten law demands
that tho women at a ball be ranged severely
together on one sidG of tha room, tho men on
the other. Tho music begins for a dance, the
men "make a break" for their partners. Tho
piece over, tho ladies are restored to their
While bull fights may really be called the
great national amusement in Mexico, it must
not bo supposed that public opinion on this
subject is undivided. Tho champions of bull
fighting aro very enthusiastic, but its oppo
nents are numerous and vehement enough t
delight the hearts of tho Society for the Pre
vention of Cruelty people. Occasionally a
corrida de toros is organized by amateurs for
purposes . of beneficence, aud then tho pres
loads the unhappy projectors with censure
and satire. While many high casta Mexi
cans undoubtedly delight in this sport, a very
large number regard it with abhorrence, and
tho Mexican ladies almost alva3's express
3 against it disapproval, fear and horror.
Tho pelca do gallos, or cock fight, is a
much more brutal and sickening show than
a bull fight. It is a most visions spot, too,
ia the way of gambling, enormous sums
being staked on tho issue of theso combats.
Tho greatest attention is paid to tho breed
ing, rearing aud caro of tho game cocks, and
animals of noted record r.ro conveyed be
tween distant towns of tho republic to en
gage in theso contests.
Iectures, concerts, etc., aro rare, and
poorly jjatronized in Mexico. Parlor games
aro little followed on tho plateau, but more
common in the "warm lands," where, indeed,
life in every respect assumes a brighter,
gayer aspect under tropical influences. La
dies ride little, though equestrian exercise- is
creeping in to some extent, chiefly through
the influence of foreigners. Mexican men,
of course, almost all ridj surpassingly
wclL Drives in Mexico are a formal and
gtupld matter, consisting of monotonous
turns on the Alameda boulevard. Picnics,
lawn parties, tennis, cwxjue and many other
amusements dear to the Anglo-Saxon heart,
are almost unknown In Mexico, due to the
aforesaid social restrictions, which also sorely
hamper the line of evening calls, etc. Risk
ing and baseball begin to be known in sec
tions affected by American contact, but it
will be long ere the youth of Mexico enjoys
an adequate share of amusement. Y. II.

Game of Mind Heading.
Tha mind reader must first arrange with
some one in the room. Each person then
writes a word or seutenco upon a piece of
paper and folds it up. Tho folded slips are
collected together in a hat. Tho mind reader
takes up the first aud passes it over his foro
head, shutting his eyes at the time, lie then
announces the word previously agreed upon
with the confederate, and asks if some one
wrote it. The confederate answers "Yes."
The mind reader unfolds the paper and lays
it down on a table. He then takes another
slip, goos through the same movements and
announces the words that were written, on
the first paper. Of course some one will
answer to having written the words. This
is repeated until all the papers have been
used. The confederate must not place upon
paper the word agreed upon, but must write
another. Detroit Free Press.
