From the Sunday Globe.!
There's Room In the Upper Story.
Young man, are you growing weary
Of this eeaseless crush and strife?
There's room lu the upper story,
la the higher walks of life.
Push oil, with a true endeavor.
And a heart that's firm in right ;
There's room in the upper story
For those who w in the fight.
Away to the utmost borders
..Of this beautiful floating ball.
Wherever a spark of genius
Has answered Its master's call.
Wherever a soul Is longing
. For a freer, fairer field.
There's room lu the upper story
For those success has scaled.
Then away from the struggling masses
. Of those of caliber small.
Away to the upper story.
To the highest of them alL
Whatever your rank or profession,
If lostled and crowded aside.
There's ioom In the upper story ;
Press on through the surging tide!
'Tis only the brcvest and strongest
Will reach the temple's dome,
And find In the uppeT sUry,
A laurel crown and home.
The YTay Indians keep Bargains.
Wm Penn was a sly old fox. "When
he bought of the Indians in 1GSS a
tract of land commencing on the line
of his former purchases, ajul extending
northwesterly as far as a man could
ride on horseback in two days, doubt
less he had a touh animal in his
mind's eye for the task. When this
bargain was re-discussed in 1737, and
the modified plan carried out by Thom
as & John Penn, it was stipulated that
the purchase of 1 080 le consummated by
commencing at YVrightstown, Bucks
County, Pennsylvania, and tercnipatirg
at a spot a man could reac.li in one and
a half dav's walk, A iiiah by the
name of Edward Marshall was one of
the walkers selected. Mr. J. II. Mar
tin states that this man started from
YVrightstown at sunrise, on .Sept. 19th,
1737, and at sunset had reached the
foot of the Blue Mountains, and at
noon next day had reached Tobihama
Creek, lie was a Ix-tter athlete than
the Indians expected to lind among
the whites, lie put fifty miles behind
him the ur;;t diy, ami in eighteen hours
be walked eighty miles. The Indians,
we are told, were terribly exasperated
by the result, as they had no idea of
selling !eir rich hunting grounds bc
yond tho mountains. Their dissatis
faction increased until it ended in open
war in 1751, raid the first victims of
the tomahawk were the family of Mar
shall. When land Mas sold in the
loose fashion described, a stout athlete
was a man of much importance. The
Penns, although Quakers, were remark
ably sharp traders.
Exactly! they never make a bargain
that they don't back out of and on
their .shoulders lie the violations of
nearly all treaty stipulations. This
case is. a fair sample; there could be
no excise here for saying that they did
not know the value of the money or
goods they gut, or the white man's
measure. They had their own meas
ure, as far as a man could walk; and
when ho walked further than they
liked, they backed out, and afterward
went to war about it.

Obituary of a Western Editor.
Ye editor sat in his rickety chair, as
worried as worried could be, for ye
devil was grinning before him there,
and "copy 1" ye devil sayed he.
Oh, ye editor grabbed his big quill
pen, and it sputtered ye ink so free,
that his manuscript looked like a war
map, when "Take this," to the- devil
He scribbled and scratched through
the live-long day, no rest or refresh
ment had he; for the devil kept con
stantly coming that way, and howling
for more "eoii-ee."
Dav after dav he scissored and wrote,
a saying the whole countree; while ye
devil kept piping his single note, "A
little more outside cop-eel"
And when ye boys in ye news-room
hear the sound of unequal fray, the
voice of a blow and a blasphemous
word, "He's raisin' the devil !" say they.
And oft when a man with a griev
ance came in, ye editor man to see,
he'd turn his back with a word of sin
Go talk to ye devil," sayed he.
And ever and oft, when a "proof" of
his work ye proprietors wanted to see,
"Ye proof shall bn shown by my per

And thus he was destined through
all of his life, by this spirit tormented
to be; in hunger and poverty, sorrow
and strife, always close to ye devil was

AMERICAN P03I0L0UICAL SOCIETY.
Fourteenth Sesssan and (Jaart?r Cen
Whereas the American. Pomologi
cal society, at its List session, accepted
the invitation of the Massachusetts
Horticultural Society, io hold its Quar
ter Centennial Celebration, and Bien
nial Session, in the city of Boston, in
Therefore, in conformity with said
acceptance, the undersigned give no
tice that the Fourteenth Session of this
National Association will be hcTd in
the Hall of the Massachusetts Horti
cultural Society, Tremont street, in
Boston, commencing Wednesday, Sep
tember 10th, 1873, at 10 o'clock, A. M
and continue for three days. . .
All Horticultural, Pomological, Ag
ricultural, and other kindred associa
tions, in "the United State? and British
Provinces, are invited to send delega
tions, as large- as they may deem expe
dient, and aTl persons interested in the
cultivation of fruits, are invited to be
present and take seats in the Conven
tfen. . .Tlie coming session will be especially
interestinc?, commemorating, as it "vill,
the termination of the first quarter of I
a century of tho existence of the So
ciety, and, it is believed, will be one of
the most important and useful that the
Society has ever held. On this occa
sion there will be brought together the
best cultivators and fruits of our wide
ly extended country, when may be ex
amined and compared the fruits, not
only of the cooler climes of the North,
but of the South and West, and the Pa
cific slope. It is therefore very desira
ble that every State, Territory, and
Province of America should be fully
and ably represented in thjsconven
tion, thereby promoting thb advtince
lnent of one of the great resources of
our national wealth, the extension
and perpetuation of the amicable and
social relations which have heretofore
existed among the members of the So
ciety, and the diffusion throughout
the land of our deliberations, for the
benefit of our constantly expanding
It is therefore hojied that there will
be a full attendance of Delegates from
all quarters of th3 country, thereby
stimulating more extensive cultivation
by the concentrated information ana
experience of cultivators, and aiding
the Society in perfecting its Catalogue
of Fruits. This will be one of the

The Chksn Fortune.
The Chases have got it the immense
fortune of 32(10,000,000. The decision
has been rendered that the American
heirs are entitled to just that amouut.
It is a pity that the sum isn't larger.
It will hardly go around all the many
Chases young and old, that can trace
their lineage directly back to Sir Rich
ard Townley, of Lancashire, England,
who had a grandson so lazy that he
wouldn't get married, and naturally
died without an heir, and the vast es
tates fell to a sister who did get mar
ried to one Chase.- Of course they had
sons four of them. Three of them
came to America, The other, a block
head, remained in England, and his lit
Chases have inherited 3125,000,000.
The entire fortune w:is 3:3o,000,000,
and through the ignorance of the son
that stayed in England, America 3
cheated out of so much ready money.
We think there is. ground in that for a
claim of indirect damages. At Geneva
we c'nly got 375.000,000. Here is an
opportunity of frightening the British
lion into the payment of a hundred
million, more. Caleb Cushing could
etablirrlf a" most legal and just claim
to th's estate of the brother, that should
have been governed by the majority,
and followed his three brothers to Ply
mouth Rock. Ex.
Pretty good! Champion S., at Oma
ha, is one of "them fellers," and we
have a live heir in Plattsmouth. Go
in, boys, and win, only divide fair
when you get the 33S5.000.000.
How Jlodoc Jack Lok3-
Sax Francisco, C a i, June 8.
Dispatches received from Yreka this
evening, dated Boyle"?? Camp, Title
Lake, June Gth, snty that soon after the
arrival of- the Modoc prisoners at his
camp, General Davis sent word to the
settlers at Tule Lake and the Lost
River country that he desired all of
them to come and identify the murder
ers in hand and the property. Among
those who responded to the call were
Mrs. Boddy and her daughter, Mrs.
Schiera, two women who were widowed
by the Modocs. Boddy and Schiera
took up three quarter sections of land
near the mouth of Lost River, last Au
gust, and with. their families settled in
the country. On the morning of Nov.
29th Captain .hickson's command at
tacked Jack and his party on. Lost Riv
er and compelled them to retire.
Hooka JiLi and his party were on the
north side of the river from Jack, but
knew cf bis defeat. They were mur
dered bv Hooka Jim and his associates
during the forenoon of that dav whtle

in a few miles of .Jtbe house, atul were
uUerlv unctmsciouS of danger. The
agent of the Yainox reservation had
promised that any offensive movement
against the Indians should be made
known to the settlers, to afford the sot
tiers an opportunity to obtain safe
refuge. The messenger failed to do
his duty thereby facilitating the mas
sacre, rue arrival or air. uouuys
team without a driver, and the blood
upon the wagon, was the first intima
tion of the terrible tragedy these poor
women received. Before noon they
found the Ixnlies of the murdered men,
stripped of all their clothing, at differ
ent points. Within a few miles of the
house they also met Mouocs llooKa
Jim, Long Jim, Curly-headed Doctor,
One-eyed Mose, Rock Dave, Humph
Jerry," and Mrs. Hooka Jim, who were
implicated in the crime. AVhile the In
dians were at the houso to find more

traveled day and night and suffered
many hardships, and reached Mr. Van

This morning Hooka Jim and Steam

from a scout after tl'r?e or four mis
sing Modocs, wera taken to the tent
occupied by the .women. Hooka Jim
was identified by Mrs Boddy as one of
the Indians concerned in the massacre
About the robbery, he said Long
Jim tojk a long purse containing 3300,
and he took a short purse. Tho wo
men here became exr ited. They lost till
control over their feelings and began
crying, and started in for desperate
work. Mrs. Schiera drew a pistol and
started for Steamboat Frank; and Mrs.
Boddy drew a knife and dashed at
Hooka Jim. General Davis stepped in
at this moment stud secured both wea
IKHis. During the struggle the General
received a slight cut . in the palm
of the hand and near the thumb.
Hooka and Steamboat stood like stat
ues ; neither spoke or offered to resist.
It galls Jack and his comrades to see
Hooka Jim and Frank travcling to and
fro at will, and sinned at that. He
does not understand the result of turn
ing State's evidence. This afternoon
he became greatly excited, and gave
vent to his rage. In a fiery oration he
rose in chains with Schonchein, and in
a strong and impressive manner recited
his grievances. The purport of what
he said is told by Scarfsce Charley.
"He is rfad " rays Charier? "to sf ? tmii

Jack was in the midst of his oration
his fellow captives were warming in
lyrrtpath'y with him. The officer of the

Humors of tlie Vienna Exhibition.
Anecdotes connected with tlie visit of
the Crown Prince and the Princess Vic
toria to the German depart met of the
Exhibition at Vienna are still current.
A letter inserted in a Swiss paper nar
rated a little incident which happened.
Prince Fredrick William, being about
to enter tlie French department of the
Exhibition, was for a moment stopped
by his cicerone, who said to him, "Your
Imperial Highness wi?l perhaps please
to await a little till the French work
men have withdrawn?" But thePrinte
answered, "Oh, let us go on!" He went
through the. Department. The French
workmen star ji a little glumly at him,
evidently dissatisfied: but the official
French Commisssoner received him
quite agreeably. Generally the Prince
is popular at Vienna, and often min
gles v. ith the townspeople who meet
him in his walks through the Exhibition
This put3 an English" writer in mind of
an amusing story which occurred some
years ago, when the Prince staying v. ith
his mother the Queen at Etidcn-Baden,
met a Berlin tailor, very rich, a'd re
cently ennobled, in one of the saloons.
The Prince asked him how he amused
himself at Baden-Baden. The parcenii
answered, "Your Royal Highness; T
amuse myself well enough, but I lind
society here is a little indifferently
mixed." "Perhaps so, said the Prince ;
but everybody, you know, cannot be a

The Nation describes the Democrat
ic party as "a party without a policy
a party of mere negation, which never
has anything positive to offer; which
was opposed to the war, opposed to the
prosecution of the war, opposed to
emancipation, opposed to the constitu

rises higher than ah ob.s'tiratfc I -position

The Superintenslcncics Abolished.
Under the law enacted at the last
session of Congress, authorizing the
President to appoint five inspectors of
Indian affairs, and to abolish tis maty
of the existing Indian superintenden
cies as he should deem . advisable, the
President has. upori recommendation
of the Secretary of the Interior, issued
an order abolishing the superintenden
cies of Montana, Oregon and Arizona,
and the Northern Indian Superintend
ency, which comprises Dakota and a
part of Nebraska ami appointing-the
following named persons to be Indian
Inspectors for asssignment to duty un
der the law as the interests of the ser
vice may require: J. W.Daniel, Minne
sota; J. C. O'Connor, New York; J.
D. Bevier, Michigan; E. C. Kemble,

Necessity is the mother of invention,
and it is to Mother Necessity that we
are indebted for that very useful but
very dangerous little household article
the lueifer match. Mr. Isaac I Ioldon,
In his evidence before tho English
Patent Committee, thus gives the his
tory of the invention, which, he says,
was due to a happy thought that flash
ed upon liim withot't aiiy previous con
sideration. Mr. Holden, many years
ago, had to rise at four in the morning
to pursue his studies in chemistry, anil
experienced the greatest inconvenience
from his tedious eforts to obtain a
light from flint and steel. He was
giving lectures at this time to a very
large academy. Ho goes on to say:
"Of course 1 knew, as other chemists
did, the explosive material that was
necessary in order to produce instanta
neous light, but it was very diilieuit to
obtain a light on wood by that explo
sive material, and the idea occurred to
me to put under the explosive mixture
sulphur. I did that, ;:tl published it
in my next lecture, and showed it.
There wis a young man in the room
whose father was a chemist in London,
and he immadiatoly wrote to his father
about it, and shortly afterwards Inciter
matches were issued to the world.

i the best substance to ttke. the greasy
I dirt out of leather gloves, n it does
not attack the leather like most of tho
other substances sometimes used for
thftt purpose. Those who make it a
profession to clean gloves, put them till

zine, close the stopper, and shako tho
whole several timvs, letting it rest

out, one by one, and examined. If any
deposits have remained, they are rub
bed out with benzine; the plove is then
wrung out it;:d hung up to dry. If
such ghnf.a were, however, to bo worn
after simply air-drying, tho higher
temperature of the hand would cause
evaporation with an unpleasant odor
of the benzine, which, at the lower I em
perature was left I'thirhl. Hence they
are dried at a temperature of some 200
degrees, between plates heated with
boiling water, w hich removes all traces
of benzine, and consequent odor. The
benzine, remaining in the bottle after
