Grant was given a reception this after
noou by the children of the public
schools. About 3,000 bovs formed m
open order at Walnut and Broad
streets, and the General reviewed them
en route to the Academy of Music,
where about 3.000 tiirls, from the Nor
mal, Grammar and Secondary schools
were seated in the auditorium. A
number of visiting gentlemen were
on tnc stajre. As Gen. Grant entered
the children sang, ' See, the Conqner
ing Hero Com?s," aud wildly waved
their handkerchiefs. President Steele,
f the Board of Education, followed
with an address f welcome. Gen
Grant suffered so severely with hoarse
ness that his reply could scarcely be
heard beyond a few feet from tho
stage. lie spoke as follows:
"The safeguard of all power in a
freo Republic is a wido diffusion of
knowledge. Mo?t of the States have
not been as fortunate in that regard
as Pennsylvania, but I doubt not that
the country will progress in this di
rection until a common school educa
tion shall be within tho reach of all.
These children have good reason to
thank the gentlemen of the education
al department of this city for the
privileges accorded them."
Bangor. Me., Dec. 23. The execu

all god citizens of every city, town
and ham'et in the State to unite with
them in taking measures for concerted
action to prevent consummation of
the outrages perpetrated upon the
i ights and liberties of the people, and
the honor and fair name of the State
of Maine. Great evils, says the ad
dress, demand prompt remedies, and
for this greatest wrong ever commit
ted under f ice government, we believe
that among the people of Maine there
aie clear heads to discover, and strong
arms to apply means to render it of
avail. For this purpose we ask your
advice, assistance and co-operation,
that the hone Hy, intelligence and
patriotism of our people may become
a living force t9 carry out tlieir will.

Menlo Park, N. J., Dec. 21. The
near approach of the first public ex
hibition of Edison's tanc-looked for
electric light has revived public inter
est in the great inventor's work, and
throughout the civilized world scien
tists and people generally are anxious
ly awaiting the result. By special en
terprise, however, your representative
is enabled to present to the readers of
the Inter-Ocean a full and accurate de
scription of his work, from its incep
tion to its completion.
SIMPLE BUT WONDERFUL.
Edison's electric light, incredible as
it may appear, is produced from a lit
tle piece of paper, a tiny piece of pa
per that a breath would blow away.
Through this little strip of paper is
passed an electric current, and the re
sult is a bright, beautiful light like the
l vMdlow sunset cf an Italian autumn.
"But pap r instantly burns, even
Hrlerthe trilling heat of atallowcan
dle!" exclaims the sceptic, " and how
then can it withstand the fierce heat
of an electric current?" Very true;
but Edison makes the little piece of
paper more infusible than platinum,
more durable than granite. And this
involves no complicated process. The
paper is merely baked in an oven, un
til all its elements have passed away
except its carbon framework. Aud this
light, the inventor claims, can- bo pro
duced cheaper than tl; Hitst c!J.
Our Temperance Column.
EDITED BT THE WOMAN'S ftllllSTIAK TKM
"Tor Cod. and KtHne, and Native Land."
W. N CT. U.
For our Temperance column this
week, we give a few extracts from the
Annual address before the Woman's
National Christian Temperance Union
by its President, Mrs. Wittenmyer, at
its recent convention at Indianapolis,
Indiana Our friends will remember
this lady, as having delivered halfqf
an interesting lecture here last sum
mer! There is no system of iniquity that
so successfully antagonizes tho chris
tian church as the drink traffic; there
is no habit that so completely obliter
ates the lessons of truth and dehuman
izes its victim as the drink habit.
The saloon, with its wide open doars,
confronts the church. Tho beer-garden
draws upon tho Sabbath-school,
and under the feet of this vile system
of iniquity every pure, clean thing is
trampled in tha mire of sin.
For every church there are twenty
five saloons, for every Sabbath-school
teacher a bar-tender. The church,
open two or three times each week,
sends out a dim uncertain light through
its window ; the saloons, pen night ar.d
day, Sunday and weekday, throw their
glare of false light across the pathway
of the innocent and unwary, ta alluro
men to a drunkaid's grave.
It is clearly the first duty of the
church, by positive. legislation on the
part of the highest eclesiastical con
vocations, to cleanse tho church and
expel this enemy from pulpit and pen.
The church must go out to th-3 con
test white-handed. Let her say with
the voice of authority that the pulpit
must give no uncertain sound on this
question, that the peii3 must form no
alliance with the rum traffic. What
would this mean ? Just this: the mini
ster who stands to teach must teach a
gospel including Temperance; and the
time is at hand when the minister who
can sit down in easy indifference, with
twenty-five saloons confronting his
church, and souls staggering past to
death, with the bitter cry an their lips
the bitterest that ever went up from
earth to heaven, "No man cares for my
soul," will be told that he was missed
his calling and that he had better go
ba;k to feeding swine.
The time lias come in the history of
the Temperance eause when there are
only two sides to tha question. There
is no neutral ground upon which the
men and women of the church may
stand and say: "It is nothing to me."
It ?s the duty of the church, as of indi
vidual Christians, to antagonize sin and
redeem the lost, and advance every in
ttrest that will bring in His kingdom
whose right it is to reign.
All caa no longer admit of compro
miso measures in dealing with tho li
quor traffic. Tin whole iniquitous
business is wrong, a sin against God, a
cruel crima against societ', that no
amount ef revenue can condone. To
admit that crime legalized is no longer
crime, is absurd. Tho moral code is
written not only in the Book ot God,
but on human hearts. Every fibre of
soul and body is under laws that, vio
lated, must meet the penalty, no mat
ter now men lesislate. Ana there is
not one sentence in the whole moral
code that does not fall upon the liquor
traffic and trafficers in heavy condemn
ation. We must adjudge this crime
as we would other crimes.
There is no 'ground to justify com-
promisis. As well might we advocate
a law making it optional with tha peo
ple whether crime, such as theft, or
murder, or arson, should be committed
under protection of law.
There is not a principle involved in
English common law that is not viola
ted by the emissaries of the liquor
traffic; human comfort aud Lappiness,
the safety of life and property, and
the perpetuity of Government are in

Prohibition is, we are glad to know,
just now the popular battle cry among
the most thoughtful and experienced
Temperance workers, and the, fruits
beffin to tell. Kansas has submitted
i constitutional amendment to the
people, forever prohibiting tho manu
facture and sale of alchoholic drinks in
that state, which t hey, hope will bo
sustained by the vote of the people.
Nebraska came within oue vote of get
ting prohibition last year. The Re
publican party of Iowa has pledged
tself to submit a const itutional amend
ment to ths people forbidding this traf

Mr. W. P. Belknnn. of Goldfield.
Iowa, makes a good suggestion relative
to sowing rve in corn before the last

can endorse Mr. B.'s idea. "It farmers
will sow one-half bushel of winter rye
to the acre in tlieir corn and plow it
in the last time, it will not onlv have
a tendency to choke out tho weeds that
startup afterwards, but there will be
no danger of dry murrain among cat
tle from citing too freely of dry stalk3.
as the rve will remain jrreen throuirh
tho winter and will be eaten br stock
in preference to the corn-fodder. It
makes a desirable feed, for all kinds of

ity aud quantity of milk produced,
besides proving a saving of lrom one
to two tons of hay for every acre sown
