It must have brought a smile to tin
face of ev(ry saloon keeper in town when
they saw ly the Omaha lieyublfcan Sat

pledges. But what does a pledge signify
Ix Saturday's llrjmblican Senator
Polk calls attention to the fact that h
received a majority of some three hun
dred. yes, and some of his associates on
the ticket especially those who
wtre defeated, have reason to know
just what his majority cost them.
Soon' after the last campaign closed it
was charged that a great increase in tin
expense of running the TJrooklyn navj
y&?mif'W(rriredTTid few weeks befon
the close of the campaign and that this-
increased expense was for democratic
campaign funds. The recent report of
the secretary of the navy to the scnatt
in response to a request for information,
shows some figures that are really sur
prising. In the bureaus of engineering
and of construction and repairs, th
September excnscs were $103,001; ii
October, $ M0?0S; but in November they
dropped to $3,745, or less than one-half

As time rolls on and things come ts
light, they show up worse and worsa foi
Germany. It now transpires that tin
commander of the only American man
of-war that was in the Samoa matters re
ceived a dispatch from Mr. Btyard
directing him to sail away from "Samoa
lie oleyed the order and now finds that
accompanying the dispatch were further
instructions from his government, and
these permi'ted him to remain if certain
conditions existed in the affairs on tin
island. These instructions had been ab
stracted in some way. If the commander
had received them he would have re
mained. It is rumored that the German
authorities are suspected of intercepting
the dispatches and of abstracting th
accompanying instructions. It is for
tunate that Mr. Blaine is soon to have
the direct dealing with Bismarck, the
prince may monkey with the dispatches
of other powers passing over their terri
tories, but Uncle Sam will hardly allow
Germany to cut up such capers in neotnd
There is good reason to believe Hint
the assassins of Col. Clayton are within
easy reach if the officers of the law
cared to seek thera out and bring them to
punishment. They must be known to
the people of the community in which
their infamous crime was committed.
The murder was evidently planned in
such a way ami under such conditions
that it should not be difficult to identify
the guiltv parties. It is foolish to saj
that it was the act of a single desperado,
influenced f strictly personal condition.
Col. Clnyton was killed for political
reasons and to prevent the disclosure of
the frauds by winch lie was robbed ol
his right3 as a candidate for congress.
There was no other motive in the case.
It is admitted by everybody that he gave
no other offense than that of seeking ti
uncover the illegal and dishonest pro
ceedings of those who caused a majority
to be certified against him when a major j
ity of the votes were cast for him. The
men who perpetrated these rascalities are
not hard to finL and it is certainly reas
onable to believe that some clew to the
actual assassins might be obtained by in
vestigation in that direction.
The fact is, however, that not so much
as a suspicion has been brought to light
in the matter. It does not appear that
the officers have taken any steps to dis
cover the murderers. The legislature has
offered a reward of $.00), but nobody
appears to be anxious to earn it by giving
the desired information. There is an
ibundancc of talk about the enormity of
the crime and the disgrace which it has
brought upon the state, but not a word
that tends to further the real interests of
justice. These who know wl o the assas
sins are will not breathe their names;
they will not even express a hint or a
conjecture in that respect. It is impossi
ble to avoid the conviction that this policy
of silence and concealment is supported
by public opinion. In other words, it
seems that the democrats of Arkansas do
not propose to assist in the vindication of
the law where the crime involved is of a
political nature. Haying long indorsed
and encouraged election frauds, they are
now resolved that assassination in the
same line shall not be punished if they
can prevent it. They may profess that is
not their feeling upon the subject, but the
facts discredit all such protestations. If
they were in earnest they would exert
themselves to effect the arrest of the par
ties who committed the murder. That is
the only way to prove that they ire op
posed to such a method of confirming a
democratic candidate's title to office,
and depriving a republican candidate .of
the right to contest zit election. Globe
"A Word to the Wise is Sufficient."
Catarrh is not simply an inconvenience,
unpleasant to the sufferer and disgusting
to others it is an advanced outpost of
approaching disease of worse type. Do
not neglect its warning; it brings deadly
evils in its train. Before It is too late,
use Dr. Sage's Catarrh Itemedy. It
reaches the seat of the ailment, and is the
only thing that will. You may dose
yourself wifh quack medicines 'till it 19

Ghosts In the Maintop. "
The sccno of ghostly experienco has
Ven shifted to the sea. An English
riowjKipcr says the mate of a ship, name
not jvivon. ordered some cf the youths to
reef ilio maintopsail. When tho first got
up lit- heard a strange voice saying, "It
blows hard!" Tho lad waited for no
more: ho was down in a trice and told
!iis adventure. A second immediately
iscended, laughing at the folly of his
companion, but returned even more
quickly, declaring that he was quite sure
that a voice, not of this world, had cried
in hia ear, "It blows hard!" Another
went, and another, but each came back
with the eamo tale,
At length the mate having gent up the
whoio watch, ran up the shrouda hinv
self, and when he reached the haunted
spot beard the dreadful words distinctly
uttered in his ear:
"It blows hard."
"Ay, ay, old one, but blow it ever so
hard, we must ease the earrings for all
that," replied the mate undauntedly,
and looking around he saw a fine parrot
perched on one of the clews the
thoughtless author of the false alarms
which had probably escaped from some
other vessel to take refuge on this.
Another of our officers mentioned that
on ort j of his voyages ho remembered a
boy having been sent up to clear a rope
wlueh had got foul above the mizzentop.
Presently, however, ho came back trem
bling and almost tumbling to the bot
tom, declaring that he had seen "Old
Davy" aft the crosstrces. Tho mate, in
i rrgc, at length mounted himself,
.vhc: resolutely, a3 in the former case,
iari -iing for tho bugbear, he soon ascer
tained the innocent cause of eo much
terror to be a large horned owl, so lodged

ANTS FOR EATING.
They Are Said to lie an Good u Tickle.
Some I-nr;-o 1'fixc.
Shiuld a Maine iuruU-niian find a
stump of rotten log with thousands of
Lig black ants in it. bo scoops the torpid
insects from their winter domicile and
fills bis dinner pail with thcui. When
he gets back to hL camp at night ho
sets the pail in a cool place until his
supper is ready, then brings it forth,
and, while helping himself to iork and
beans, helps himself also to ants. There
is no accounting for tastes, and he esteems
a handful of ants a very choice morsel.
Ants are said by those who have tasted
them to have a ieculiarly agreeable,
stronirlv acid flavor. The woodsmen,
whoso food consists largely of salted
meat, baked beans and similar hearty
fictuals. naturally hao a craving for
something sour. "Ants are the very best
of pickles," said an old "logger," who
confessed to having devoured thousands
of them. "They are cleanly insects, and
there is no reason why they should not
be eaten, if one can get over a little
squeamiiihness caused by the thought of
taking such crawling things into his
stomach. There is nothing repulsive
about them, and when a man has once
learned to eat the creatures as pickles he
prefers them to any other kind."
Ants have at various times and in dif
ferent countries been quite extensively
used in medicine, and formic acid, which
was first obtained bv distilling tho bodies
of these insects, but is now artificially
prepared, is a well knov.-n and useful
Herodotus tells of ants that livo in the
deserts of India which are in size "some
what less than dogs, but larger than
foxes." These creatures, in heaping up
the earth after the manner of common
ants, were a very efficient aid to the In
dian gold hunters. Tho sand which they
threw up being largely mixed with gold,
the Indians were accustomed to go to the
desert in tho heat of tho day, When the
Ant? Yere underground, load the sand
into sacks, pilo tho sacks upon their cam
els, and hasten from the spot as rapidly
as possible. The ants, according to the
historian, wero not only the swiftest of
animals, but were gifted with such a
sense of smell that they immediately be
came aware of the presence of men in
their territory, and unless tho Indians
got away while tho ants were assembling
to attack them not a man could escape.
Webster's nine Suit.
Daniel Webster went to college in a
homespun suit, of which probably every
thread was carded, spun and woven by
his mother's hand from tho wool of their
own sheep. A contributor to Wide
Awako says It was a dyed-in-the-wool
suit, and the color was indigo blue the
old Now England color.
In the south it is butternut: but though
our Yankee grandmothers and great-great-grcat-grandmothers
knew all about
what butternut bark would do, and the
subtilo power for slate color that lay in
sumach berries and bark of white maple,
and tho various dyes that root and
flower, bark and leaf could be mado to
yield through the agency of vitriol and
alum and copperas to "set" them fast,
tho universal stand by was tho blue pot
par excellence the "dyo pot" thai
stood in tho chimney corner of ever;
kitchen worth naming.
So Webster was fitted out in inuij
bluo from collar to ankle unbecoming
for his swart skin and set olx gran;'
and sophomoric. Before reaching Ila:.
over, there came on one of those drench
ing rains which, like the Scottish mist,
wet it man to the skin. Tho suit held
it3 own for has not ludlgo blue been
"warranted fast" sinco first indigo wau
heard of but it had parted with enough
so that Daniel, too, was died blue froiu
head to foot.
Daniel Webster had a liberal stratuiv.
of sentiment in his make up; and foi
soma reason, thi3 color of his youn
manhood became his favorite wea:
through life. . Ho wore Llue coats to hi
dying day. If any one ever saw him L;
a dii7crent one, the fact ha3 not been pui
on record. Youth's Companion.
