HOODS. Roger Q. Mills dedan s that the price
of uig-irou is about I3.72 a ton, and
that the duty on that article, which is
$6.72 a ton, is clear profit to the manu
facturer. Mr. II. A. Crawford says that
tbousmds of tons of pig-iron have hecu
old in St. Louis, within the past three
months at less thnn $15 a tou. further
more. Mr. Crawford ears that pig-iron
makers would be very glad to take $1.50
profit, or less than one-fdurth of the sum
which Mr. 3Iills declares they are making
right along on that product.
There is con.-iderabl: difference be
tween tliose two statements. They con
flict on all points, and conflict so radical
Ij that it is impossible to harmoniie them
If one of them is right the other must
necessarily be wrong. An inquiry, there
fore, into the character and qualifications
of the witnesses will be necessary !efore
an intelligent opinion can be arrived 'at
as to the relative value of their testimony.
Who is this Roger Q. Mills? Why, this
Mills is Roger Q. Mills, of Corsicana,
Tex. Who is II. A. Crawford.' Mr.
Crawford is president of the Slijjo Fur
nace Company, of St. Louis. Roger Q.
Mills has never been in a furnance, a
foundry or a factory in his life perhaps
never ssw one while II. A. Crawford is
at the head of one of the biggest furnaces
in tb.3 MUdssipp i Valley. Mr. Mills does
not know whether pig-iron is a natural
product or a manufactured commodity.
For all he can tell of his own persoual
knowledge pig-ir-n may grow on trees,
like apples or persimmons. Mr. Craw
ford, on the other hand, is n cogniz d
from San Francisco to New York as an
Authority on questions of tins nature.
Mr. Mills has solemnly declared nt
least twenty-five times, and in as main
places, that the ltbor in a ton of rteel
rails amouuts to just :.75, while experts
men who are in the business, &nd know
from years of practical experience what
they are talking about, put the labor
cost at from $ I :i to $15. A cur-ful in
quiry made a few weeks ago in Pennsyl
vania placed the cost of the labor in
2240 pounds of steel rails, at present
rates, at l4.H., or almost four times ns !
great as the Texas statesman's estimates
The Globe- Democrat has pointed out a
least a dez?n falsehoods made by Mi
Mills in his speeches at Richmond, Ind.
and E ist St. Lnis. They are not only
falsehoods which uny intelligent person
could discover on inquiry, but they are
alsehoods which cut the ground com
pletely from undr him, and prove that
the scheme which he advocates is as
Ticioii? and iniquitous as the methods
which he employs in advocating it are;
dicreputable and dishonest. .All this
trickery and mendacity, of course, is tell
ing disastrously on the fortunes of the
democracy. In 'fret, Mr. MilU with
drawal from the. stump in the north to
go down and stve himself from defeat
in hi own district is the severest blow
which the republicans Lave received in
tts present canvass. Globe DeraocraLX,

SeMAToit IIalk's resolution touching
the confidential political order issued by
Brigadier General Benet, with the ap
proval of Secretary Endicoot, is timely.
It calls upon the war department to furn
ish all the facts that made the issuing of
the order necessary, why it was marked
"confidential," and what changes have
been made in pursuance of it. These are
just the facts which the senate and the
people of this country want to know;
and they have a tight to the fullest in
formation. Of course, the democratic
senators would not let such a resolution
pass without objection, but they made no
attempt to explain or justify the cxtraor
dinary proceeding af the chief of ordi
nance and his superior. Mr. Endicott is.
to be sure, placed in a humiliating posit
ion, and the Strang probability is that the
opinion that has been held concerning
him must be revised. The political at

In former years our little American colony
in Schaffhausen numbered in all six souls,
and, to use an excusable bull, two of these
Americans were Belgians, having resided in
New York some years. Now there is not
even a shadow of a colony here, and beauti
ful as the tours about the environs are, thev
are quit abandoned by our countrymen.
The average traveler arrives at Schaffhausen,
is immediately rushed into an omnibus,
driven over to Neuhausen, sees the falls of the
Rhine, and then away again. Not so your
correspondent, for I quietly settled down at
the Hotel de la Poste, a quiet hostelry in the
city itself, slipped into my smoking jacket
and slippers, and was soon chatting with
mine host, Buehlman, just as if the seventeen
years since I last rested here were yesterday.
"Ah!" said my genial host, "you are just
in time, Herr Elson. To-morrow evening
the Castle, the old Munoth, is to be the scene
of a reception, given by the Btadtsratb to
the singing societies of Canton Appenzell,
and I will see that you are specially invited."
And invited I was, and the followiug even
in; found me seated at tbe round table within
the esplanade of the oastls, while tbe Appen
zellers made merry musie about me. Then
dancing was in order, and although I am not
a dancer myself I will try to describe a pe
culiar dance they call "La Francaise," which
appeared very pretty to me as I sat and
looked on. The seta were formed OS for pur
ordinary German at home, but after a few
bars of music by the orchestra I saw it was
to be quite different. Everybody is the pink
of politeness. "Mademoiselle, may I have
the h,,norr the hat s raised, the lady courte
sies very low, and in fact more quiet polite
ness is displayed than one meets at a similar
Parisian gathering.
At length all is ready. After the custom
ary saluie the music falls into a veritable
minuet, as stately almost as tUa pna of the
French Louis. Follow it with me, dear
reader, in fancy, at least, Tbe old minuet of
our aucestors, forward and salute, fco gen
tleman holding the lady's hand with a quite
indescribable grace as high as the shoulder,
then across and back again; but while I am
gazing dreamily on this scene, what do I
hear Why, to be sure, one of Strauss' rav
ishing waltzes, and presto I the whole is
changed from the sober to the gay, and I see
uothing but the r??yi healthy faces turning
about, while the' tails of tbe gentleman's dress
coats stand at an angle of forty-five degrees,
so fast do these South Germans and Swiss
waltz. And so tbe dance ends.
But I have promised, gentle reader, to take
you into the country, so let us take this train
for 4 shfti-t ride into Germany (for you must
remember Schaffhausen lies' on' the German
side of the Rhine) and we soon come to the
village of Krotzingen, on the extreme south
ern edge of the Black Forest. It Is justly
called the Black Forest, for the tall pines
and cedars grow close together, making-night
of noon uadsr tljejr shadows. Taking a car
riage or, more properly, a sort of light cart,
I directed my driver to strike by the most
unfrequented road into tbe forest. In fif
teen minutes we were in a solitude so still
that it was oppressive. Not a sound save
that peculiar swaying noise of the pmes hat
only a Bret Harte can describe, ana an occa
sional cry of a bird very similar to our cat
bird; otherwise all is majestically still
I order the driver to halt, aud while he is
opening the littje hamper and spreading our
frugal luncheon I take my Compass and make
a little Inroad Into the woods. I 'hear a
brook trickling over the rocks, and as I ap
proach a frightened hare scampers through
the brush. Bpr ot$atur.e I am aa uich
startled as he, for my head is foil of soon
stories as the "Iron Ring," and I half look to
meet one of the old robber chiefs and bis
band, that a couple of centuries ago mado
this forest a dangerous place, and whose
spirits,' some of the mors fgnprant peasants
believe, are' still to be 'met with by the be
lated traveler. But hark! I hear my guide
calling', so back I go to luncheon. . The wise
fellow has put our bottle of Macon into the
brook ' to cool, and we sit down together in
the bes of feT'Owahip to our little lunoijou
in tbe Black Forest. At length all is finished
and we drive along, and by a circuitous
route reach the village of Staufen. It is a
more populous place than I expected to find
here. It has ta own little hotel, called "Tbe
Wild Man,'' and adjoining it a brewer; a
littlo row of stores, and, in fact, is quite' a
city in the woods.
But We plunge into the woods again and
presently come to a party of woodchoppers,
their axes ringing merrily, hut only against
such trees as the Herr Forstmeister has given
permission to be cut, and still farther along I
hear the dripping of water ou a mill wheel,
and here we enter the little village of Unter
munsterthal, a veritable Black Forest dorf.
I knack at tbe doorpost of a house, for the
door stands open, and a man with a heavy
pair of sabots appears, and I ask permission
to come in and see his house. He is ' natur
ally surprised that any one should want to
see his house, but accords me permission and
I enter. Against the wall stands a large
porcelain stove, at least eight feet high, while
just outside is his pile of brush and wood for
the winter. His cattle shed is just to the
rear, and bis chamber above, reached by a
short ladder. The odor of tbe cattle per
vades everything, so I make my adieus and
we aro soon on our way to Neukirch, where
I take the train back again to Schaffhausen,
which I reach not a bit fatigued with my
beautiful journey. Oeorge H. Elson iu Bos

Lack of
the Little Illustrated Paper of
Thirty-six Years Ago,
I have not seen it stated in any of tbe
ketches of his career that Lester Wsllack
was at one time an editor. And although
he was such in a comparative sense only, tho
fact, nevertheless, is worthy of record. In
1S33 the late John Brougham originated and
published a little illustrated paper here, mod
eled after The London Punch, calling it Tho
Lantern. Its name was a brilliant one.
Once a week all the leading contributors
and artists connected with the paper used to
meet at dinner, as do the artists and editors
of Punch today, to make suggestions for and
decide upon the principal cartoon to be
printed in tbe neat issue.
Tbe meeting was held every Saturday night
at Windust's, a famous restaurant on Park
row, and after every oue had dulled their
facilities With well served viands and mud
dled their brains with innumerable draughts
of sherry and ale, cigars would be lit, the
brandy decanter passed around aud John
Brougham sitting at the head of the table,
with Lester Wollack at the other end, would,
call the meeting to order and tho business of
the eveuiug would liegin. The assemblage
generally broke up at about 3 in tho morn
ing; aud when the subject for tuo cartoon
had at length been decided upon, my old
friend Frank Bellew would go homo and
make the design. In the editorial duties of
the paper, Lester WaLack, so Mr. Brougham
has told me, was his right hand man, while
a Mr. Tinson, whom if I am not mistaken,
was a carpet manufacturer, with no ability
whatever n art or letters, was chief ml vise v.
Just why these two gentlemen were chosen
it is unposs.blo to say, for their artistic and
general ideas were far inferior to those of
others in the party. Nevertheless the fac t

men of genius. They belonged to a certain
set that marked a sort of Elizabethan era in
the annals of New York journalism. There
was Fitz James O'Brien, the author of many
charming bits of verso, and an able Jitc-VJry
and dramatio critic, who enlisted in the
Union arni3' at the breaking out of tho war,
and n as killed while serving as aide-de-camp
to Gen. Lander. There was Thomas Dunn
English, one of the few who survive today ,
notwithstanding the bitter attack made upon
his character by Edgar Allan Poe attacks
which were calculated to kill outright any
ordinary man. Thomas Tower, who was
christened Micawber by tho part 3", both for
his traits in common with, as well as his rt
eemblsnc to thai gentleman, and Wi!lie:n
North, author of "Tho Slave of tho Lamp,"
and who afterward committed suicide, wero
also mtmbers of the Lantern club. Thomas
Butler Gunn, who stammered so that no one
could understand what ho said, bifc wno wan,

was another of The Lantern's leading con
tributors, and there are many more whoso

"It is difficult to realize," said a lady who
has resided in St. Paul from the early daj's,
"that w had such a scare about the Indians
in this city twenty-six years ago, during tho
Indian troubles. There was a good deal cf
excitement all over the city for, two or. three
days. I remember 0110 day an old colored
woman caaie in great excitement to my
house and said she had heard the governor
had ordered tho whole population to leave the
city at once the Indians wrs, ir,ar.chng on

lived on the other side of the block, and,

cloor. with her bureau and bed, and got her
as ready to defend herself and, in an extrem

The eyes of our countrymen are everywhere

and in tho field and copses they stand as
tokens of the genial beat that brings from te

cious fruits. No other country in tho world
is thus characterized; these plants belong to
America, and as such should bo our pride

While on this continent there are from six
ty to seventy species, and perhaps more, of the

them of vjgorous habit, growing from a foot
to eight feet in height, all tbe world besides
