Tub Journal thinks it has found out
what it was that defeated Orover, and
we agree with it. It nays : "The rebel
yell is all that prevented the democrats
from carrying several northern states.
Ttiath first time wc ever knew the
Journal to own up that it was on the

the rebel yell all through the late cam

papers do the same and the republican
party will continue to gain victory after
victory as long as thy keep it up.
New Yokk Sun: Tim overthrow of
tlia democratic majority in the house
cannot be accounted for by the personal
unpopularity which put Mr. Cleveland
000 vutea liehind Governor Hill m
New York and 13.000 votes behind Gen
Palmer in IlIinoM, demonstrating tin
president' political weakness nearly
everywhere that be has run sid by fid-
with a strong democratic candidate foi
srate and local ollice. The vote for r j-
resentatives was the nation's judgment
on the tariff policy of the democratic
caucus in the Fiftieth house. The auth
oritics of that policy have declared ovn
and over again their anxiety to go to the
country for a verdic . They have gone
t the country and the verdict has been
rendered. It is useless to blind the fact
that this disaster is hardly second in im
portance to the loss of the presidency by
the defeat of Mr. Cleveland.
A XE W ENGLISH CUV.
Lord Salisbury his furnished the
English press with a new cue in its rcflec i
tions on American affairs. He snecra at
the President for haying been defeated
in spite of his artful electiugeering de
vices, conspicuous among which were
the Retaliation message and the dismissal
of Lord Sackville. 'The Washington
statesman," his cynically remarks, ' have
net apporently commended themselves
to the approval of Americans." TV
London Journals profiting readily by the
hint return with bitterness to the Sack
viile incident, and affect to derive satis
faction from the evidence Afforded by
the elections that the president was re
buked for his incivility in dismissing the
Such clumsy by-play as this will no1
deceive any American. Every one
knows that the tone, both of the Prime
Jlinister's speech and of the English
press, would haye been very different if
the president bad been re-elected. Brit
ish sympathies are always in accord with
British interests. The English people
bad substantial reasons fur hoping for
Democratic success. They would gladly
Lave overlooked any lack of civility in
Lis treatment of their representative if
a second term for the President
could have opened for them the prospect
of a larger market for their wares. His
success would have been hailed with
mingled feelings of exultation and greed
throughout England, and the "vulgar
electioneering tricks" at their expense
would have been pardoned as harmless
vagaries of an American election. His
defeat leaves them at liberty to display
ressnament without further solicitude for
bis political fortunes. It is no longer & j
matter of enlightened self-interest for
them to eulogise the president as a broad
minded, progressive statesman. As he
can no longer aid them in getting control
of the American market, they fall upon
him and score him with one accord for
having had recourse to palpable election

THIS DAlVt JL&ttALD : PL JaSjeiuuTx, isJMtA8KA, FKlDAt, &0V
With this revised state of public feel-
IoK in Englaud, we fear that II r. Lowell
will find it uecca&ary to apologize to the
aamo audience for hid on extravagant
panegyric of Mr. Cleveland. When he
deacrihed tho president as " tle beat rep-
reaViitativc of the highrt type of Ameri-
cauUm that we have aeon oiuce Lincoln
waa snatched from us," he was very care
ful to define hi tertn9 so that his Kng:ish
friends could not complain that he was
lacking in critical acumen. ' "By Amcri-
cauim,M he said, " I mean that which
we cannot help, not that which wc
daunt"; and then he weut on to specify
Mr. Cleveland's characteristic traits as
" niauJy simplicity," "on honest endeav
or to do all ho could of duty," and
courage in p'ain and truthful speaking.
Will not Mr. Lowell now be somewhat
vinbarassed when he attempts, to vindi
cate thia judgment on " the greatest since
Lincoln"? In view of tho retaliation
m Mtage and the dismissal of Lord Sack
ville, English critics will be inclined to
iiiHi-t that this was a kind of Americanism
that was flaunted " in their faces on the
eve of election; and that Mr. Cleveland,
in employing every mauner of election
eering trick and treating Lord Sackville
wilh marked incivility solely for politi
cal effect, did not deserve praizc for
manly simplicity, honest dealing and
plain speaking. N. Y. Tribune.

tion, reaelie.s its limit of weight :tt
aljout lifty pounds! I said, "weight
of machine, fuel and directing brum."
Here is .mother prodigious advantage
of tho natural over the artillcial ma
chine. Tho Hying animal is its own
engineer, the ilying machine must
carry its engineer. The directing en
gineer in the former (the brain) is per
haps au ounce, in tho latter it is 150
pounds. The limit of the flying ani
mal is fifty pounds. The smallest
possible we ight of a Hying machine,
with its necessary fuel and engineer,
even without freight or passengers,
could not be leis than 200 or 400
Now, to complete the argument, put
these three indisputable? facts together:
1. There is a low limit of weight, cer
tainly not much beyond fifty pounds,
beyond which it ia impossible for an
animal to fly. Nature has reached this
limit, and with her utmost eli'ort has
failed to pass it. 2. Tho animal ma
chine is far more effective than any
wo may hope to make ; therefore the
limit of tho weight of a successful fly
ing machine cannot be more than
fifty pounds. 8. The weight of any
machine constructed for flying, in
cluding fuel and engineer, can not bo
less than three or four hundred
pounds. Is it not demonstrated that a

Day after day you may wander

different, but unless you watch for
them you will seldom eeo any; the
bii-ds are different, but you x-arely hear
them ; and as for the rocks, they ara our

with honest basalt dikes boring through
them, and leopard skin lichens stain

Invention of tlie SUot Tower.
There was once a mechanic at Bris
tol, England, who had a queer dream.
Watts was liis name, and he was by
trade a shot maker. The making of
the little leaden pellets was then a
slow, laborious and, consequently,
costly process. Watts had to take
great bars of lead and pound them out
into sheets of a thickness about equal
to the diameter of tho shot he desired
to make. Then he cut the sheets into
little cubes, which ho placed in ii re
volving barrel or box and rolled until
the edges wore off from the constant
friction and the little cubes became
Watts had often racked his brain
trying to de vise a belter scheme, but
in vain. Finally, after an evening
spent wilh somo jolly companions ut
tho alehouse he went houioanu turned
into bed. Ho soon fell into a deep
slumber, but the Liquor evidently did
not agree with him for ho had a bad
dream. He thought he was out again,
with the "boys." They were all try
ing to find their way home when it
began to rain hot. Beautiful glob
ules of lead, poli shed r.irl chining fell
in a torrent end compelled him and
his bibulous companions to draw their
heavy limbs to a place of iheltc.r.
In the morning, when Watt ; aror:e,
ho remembered the dream. Ho thought
about it all d:.y, and wondered what

Due record of deeds i.J a matter cf
vast importance in transit it., overi
though a deed be "perfectly good with
out record against tho grantor himself
and his heiit" and although "a deed
not recorded is just as good as if it had
been recorded against any parties or tho
heirs of any parties who took the land
from the grantor by a subsequent deed,
even for a full price, if they had at tho
time notice or knowledge of the prior
and unrecorded deed." Neglect of
registration is a fruitful cause of ex
pensive worry and litigation, ltegi-;-tered
judgments, heirs unexpectedly
turning up, mortgages whose satisfac
tion has not been recorded, rights of
dower and courtesy, Ijoth of which
conveyancers would gladly alolish i.i
order to facilitate transfers, are clilli

Equity ultimately decides in courts of
law who is entitled to possession, but
due precaution in search and recoil

need of resort to it. All titles are
cleared by sale under judicial decree.
