Since the New York Tribune fired its double shotted charge the other day into the political viscera of the great civil service fraud in the White house, the re mains are hard to recognize. The Trib une says: It is whispered that sundry mugwumps have organized themselyes into a lodge of sorro.v in order formally to give vent to their feelings in relation to the awful havoc wrought by this Tribune gun. Mr. George William Curtis is understood to have expressed to the lodge his firm conviction that the Tribune must have known that the gun was loaded. We don't often agree with Mr. Curtis nowa days, but this conviction of his corres ponds with our own. We deliberately loaded that gun for the purpose of rid lling the record of a bogus reformer. We took that target excursion on pur pose. Rumor has it that Oeorge Jones assur ed the lodge that he never realized to what a pitcli of perfection the modern firearm had been brought until he beheld Mr. Cleveland's truly good reputation fter the Tribune's gun had been fired. "I tell you brethren," exclaimed Fagin, the tears running down his cheeks like another Jones river, "there actually wasn't enough left of it to wad a toy pktol." Thy lodge said it would be glad to hear from Larry Godkin, of the second ward. But Larry's feelings were much too painfully deep for coherent utterance. Ever sice the gun waa fired he has gone tbout with cotton stufTed in his ears, muttering under his breaih, "Will the noise of the gun never cease?" We may tatc here, for the benefit of Mr. Godkin, that the reverberations of the report of that gun will be heard by the voters all through the campaign. P. S. A correspondent wants to know whether in going a gunning last Monday and making a dead duck of Mr. Cleve land in his character of "reformer" we were not violating the game law. We nuswer, no. The game law does, indeed, prohibit the shooting of ducks during certain months. But nothing is said of lecoy ducks. The most casual observer cannot fail to notice the vast strides of improvement Outing is making under its new manage ment. Not only do we find each issue to contain a rich supply of first class articles descriptive of sport in its various branch es, but there is an abundant supply of fiction taking rank with the best publish ed, and its many illustratins compare are excellent and compare most favorably with those in any magazine in the market. "While the contents of Outing for Au gust are admirably adapted to this lazy month, there is nevertheless enough oi youl-stirring sport to captivate the most enthusiastic sportsman. The disciple oi Isaak Walton will read the article, "A Rare Fish," wondering that such account have never before reached his car.--, while the spell will be further enhanced by tin charming illustrations. Following this is a seasonable article by Francis Trevtl yan on the many and varied delights oi Old Father Thames, entitled. 'The Thames of Londoners." A stirring bal lad of the steeplechase course, "IIow we heat the Favorite," by Adams Lindsey Gordon, will interest even readers who perhaps have never seen a race track. Two seasonable articles from .the pens oi undoubted authorities are: "A Few Hints on Cricket," by "Mr. Grundy" oi the Staten Island Cricket Club, and "Baseball in Colleges," by Henry Chad wick. Canoeists will be delighted with C. Iiowyer Yaux's article with 'its life likt illustrations on the "American Canoe As sociation. Scott Campbell contribute? a thrilling piece of fiction. "The Ball oi Fire;" and a most remarkable little papei in this number is "Hints on Svomminp for Women." "Faed" Wilson's "Irish Outing Awheel," is continued with il )oautiful illustrations by Harry l-nr. nud Edgar J. Taylor; followed by "Rosi Morn," a poem of btamp far above th average poetry in magazines All read ers and yatchsmerl in particular, will reac Ihe late Capt. R. F. Crtion's.-Memories oi Yatching CmMcs" with keen interest, and Mrs. Rockwood's charming poem, "Outing," in honor of the new manage inent. embellished by a full pnee illustra tion by Edgar J. Taylor, adds to tin V wealth of this excellent number. Bui thi Is oot all of the feast. The well-knowi. rort:r2 writer "Rockwccd" cives ayiv- on Zimmerman contributes a charming little tale, in negro dialect, "The End of the War;" that well-known cricketer, Howard MacNutt, discourses on "Phila delphia Cricket." Past and Present, and Lew Vanderpoole is the sponser of a quaint and charming poem, entitled "The Cricket Song."

Tho crocodiles inhabiting the lower parts of the Brumese rivers are of a very large size, some of tbem attaining to nineteen feet in length. A writer, who states he has visited India, says ho cannot discover the difference lietvreen the eastern crocodile and the Louisi ana and Florida alligator or cayman ; that there is none, in fact, except in name. It is evident he has not seen any at close quarters, for there is much difference between the several varieties. 'Khere are actually twelve species of the crocodile, eight true, one gavial and three alligators; these have a specific, not a general, difference. Those I saw in tho Granges have long, narrow muzzles and are called gavials. They are peculiar to that river, being found nowhere else. I have met with the saurian tribe in Egypt, West Africa, India, Burmab, South Amer ica, Jamaica and the southern states, and have found that all differ in some particular. The Burmese name for them is "meejoung." There is a town ou the left bauk of the Ir rawaddy called Hinthadah, where I resided for some months. During tho year previous, I was informed by the head man of the place, . over 100 persons were killed by these fero cious reptiles. There is a ford over the river at this place, and the crocodiles had an in convenient habit of lying in wait for those persons crossing the ford, seizing and carry ing them off. Not being fond of their food in a fresh condition, they hide their victims in the mud at the bottom of the river until the flesh has gained by keeping a sufficiently gamey flavor to bo relished by them. Dogs are a favorite food of theirs, and a crvxxiile will often land and run after a canine to try and capture him for his larder. As the rep tile can only run fast in a straight line, being too un wieldly to turn quickly, the dog gener ally contrives to elude his pursuer and make his escape. I killed several crocodiles during my stay in Hinthadah, and had their bides prepared and tanned, and utilized them for boots and shoes. Being impervious to wet, I found them most serviceable during the wet mon soons. I used to get a Burman to paddle ne about in a dug out until I caught sight of a "meejoung" lying on a sand Iwnk, basking in the sun, when J fcosk a careful aim at their vulnerable part, their belly, yvhez$ tiv 6cales are thin, and a conical bullet will erictr jh ease. A couple of these leadeu pills fired into this portion of a meejoung's anatomy will make Lim feel very sick indeed, and he will soon give up the gho$. On approaching a dead crockodile. the heavy and ndr?.ting odor of musk is most nauseating, and it was a long time betore I became accustomed to it. Cor. San Francesco Chronicle. At the J aril In de Planter -The acclimation of plants is here also well attended to, and the hot house filled with graceful palms and tropical flowers surround ing a lake, terminating with fern covered rocks bicb shelter a grotto, is one of the at tractive spots of tt,e garden. Yet for plants, their variety and extensive cltro carried to tho highest point of human iugenjili', p,p must visit the Jardin des Plantes in all ns details. In these grounds nearly every beau tiful tf&a, which lends the shelter of its thick foliage at tiiis season, is the native of sonie foreign country. An American in this piace feels quite at home, surrounded fcy pho grand piano trees, the chestnutj tho walnut jtr.q, the snow bushes of Virginia and the magiw lia, all belonging especially to his native country. A gar.den apart for students of botany, where not .only tho botanical names of the plants are given, but each plant is placarded according to its medicinal, nour ishing or harmful properties. Here I saw with pleasure our sweet honeysuckle, attached to a small trellis work, which gave, hofoy but a faint idea of tho charm it lends to us, as it climbs high up along our walls and ver andas. The hothouses at the Jardin des Plantes are very numerous and extensive, and there are still others in construction. The number of persons employed in earing for the plants alone would furnish a good aised regiment. When within tho conservatories oiie eic. down from corridor to corridor to find an atmosphere each time warmer, and himself transferred to a strange land, through the surroundings of it3 most marvelous produc tions. There is no known plant of beauty pr interest in the world which is not to be found here, and an immense amount of money is expended in obtaining some choice produc tion, since as much as f 100 is given for a tiny piece of green, which would be without in terest or worth to the uninitiated. A. E. Burkhardt la Cincinnati Commercial Ga zette. And Poor at That. A sago who lived before our day remarked that "speech is silver." Could ho overhear tho smaii talk of society totfay his remark would have beea modified and his immortal saying would have been, ''Speech is nickel, and a very poor quality of nickel at that" Harpers Bazar. Which are the two hottest letters in the alphabet? J N (Cayenne). A Warning. The modes of death's approach are va rious, and statistics show conclusively that more persons die from disease of the hroat and lungs than any other. It is probable that everyone, without excep tion, receives vast numbers uf. Tubercle Germs into the system and where lUcsg germs fall upon suitable soil they start into life and develop, at first filowly and is shown by a slip lit tickling sensation in the throat and if allowed to continue their ravages they extend to the lungs produc ing Consumption and to the head, caus 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 dangeroita and may loose you your life.

The republicans of the United States, assem- . bled by their deligHtes In national convention, fiaure on the threshold of their proceedings to lonor the memory of their first t;reat leader and immortal champion of liberty and ihe rights of the people, AbTaham Lincoln, and to cover also with wreath f imperishable re membrance and gratitude the heroic names of our later leaders wno have been more recently called away from ourcouncilR, Orant, (inrfleld, Arthur, Logan and C'oiikling. May their mem ories be faithfully cherished. We also recall with our greetings and prayer for his recovery the name of one of our livinK heroes whose memory will be treasured in the history both of republicnnt!i and of the republic. The name in that of the noble soldier and favorite child of victory, Philip II. Sheridan. In the plrit of I hose great leaders and of our devotion t human liberty, and with that hos tility toad forms of despotism ar.d oppression which is the fundamental idea of the republi can party, we eeud fraternal congratulations to our fellow American of I'.rail upon their great act of emancipation w hich completed the abolition of slaverv throuhout the two American continents.

We aflirin this to be far better for our country than tne democratic policy of loaning the government's money without interest to "pet banks." KORKION ltRLATIONS. The conduct of foreign affairs by the present administration has been distinguished by inef ficiency and cowardice. Having withdrawn from the senate all pending treaties effected by republican administratioi s for the removal of foreign burdens and restrictions upon our cummeice and for its extension into a better market, it lias neither aflected nor proposed any others in their stead. Professing adher ence to the Monroe doctrire, it has seen with idle complacency the extension of foreign In fluence in Central America and of foreign trade everywhere among our neighbors. It has re fused to charter; sanction or encourage any American organizytlon for constructing the Nicaragua canal, a work of vtal importance to the maintenance of the Monroe doctrine and of our national intluenee in Central and South America, and uecessaiy fo- the development of trade w ith our Pacific territory, w ith SouHi America, aud with the further coasts of the Pacific Ocean. FISHERIES QUESTION. We arraign the present democratic adminis tration for its weak and unpatriotic treatment of the fisheries question, and its pusillanimous surrender of all privileges to which our fishery vessels are en tb led in Canadian ports under the treaty of 1818, the reciprocate marin tine legislation of is:io and comity of nations, and which Canadian fishing vessels receive in the ports of the United States. We condemn the policy of the present administration and tho democratic majority in congress towards our fivheries as unfriendly aud conspiciom-ly unpatriot ic and as tending to destroy a valuable national indust ry and an indispensible resource of defense against foreign enemy. The name of American applies alike to all cilizens of the rep.iblt''. and imposes upon men alike the same o ligation of obedience to the laws. At thesame limeci'izenshipis and must be the panoply and safeguard of him who weais it, should shieid aud protect him whether high or low, rich or poor, in all his civil rights. It should and must afford him protection at home ami follow and protect him abroad in whatever laud he may be on a lawful errand. pi yiL SERVICE IIKI'OHM. The men who abandoned the republican (tar ty in 1884 and continue to adh.cre to the demo cratic party have deserted not only the cause of honest government, but of sound finance, of freedom iand purify of the ballot, but espec ially have deserted the caue of reform in the civil service. We will not fall to keep uiir pledges because t ey have broken theirs, or because their candidate has broken his. We therefore repea.' our declaiation of 1884, towit : The reform of civil service auspiciously begun under republican administration should be completed by a further extension of th" reform sjstem already established by law to all grades of the service io which it is applied. The spir it and purpose of reform xhould be observed in all executive appointments, and all laws at variance with the object of existing reform Ug islatton Riiould be repealed, and that the dan gers to free institutions which lurk in the pow er of official patronage may be wisely and ef fectively avoided. The gratitude of the nation to the defenders of the union cannot be assured except by laws. The legislation of congress should conform to the pledges made by a loyal people, and be so enlarge.! and exteuded as to prov'de against the possibility tuat any man who honorably wore the federal unifo: m shall become an In mate of an almshouse ot dependent on private charity. In the presence" of an overflowing treasury it would b" a public scandal to do less for those whose valorous service preserved the government. We denounce the hostile spirit shown by President Clpyeland in his numerous vetoes pf 'measure's for pension relief, and the action pf the democratic hou.se of representa tives in refusing eveji' consideration of general pension lifjUia.nop. In support of the principles herewith enun ciated, we Invite the co-operation of patriotic men of all parties, especially of all working men whose prosperity is seriously threatened by the free trade policy of the present administration.
