JVatiorial (Rejpziblicari TLclcat
For President of tlie Unite! States,
GEN. JAMES A. GARFIELD,
State Platform of the Republican
1. The Republicans of Nebraska most hear
tily endorse the profession of principles formu
lated by the national republican convention at
Chicafeo. and pledge their unswerving support
to the candidates there nominated.
2. We affirm that the" doctrine of national
evereignty Is t"ue fundamental principle upon
which the perpetuity of the nation rests, and
that the principle of home rule as enunciated
by the democratic party is but the cautious ex
pression of the Calhoun doctrine of state rights ;
is revolutionary In its character and destiuctive
to the unity of tlie nation.
3. We regard the recent seizure of the polls
and wholesale robbery of the franchises of the
republican citizens of Alabama, by the demo
cratic officials, surpassing In the magnitude
aad effrontery of the crime, all former efforts ef
their party under the Tweed plan in New York,
er the Mississippi plan In the south, as a fair
specimen of democratic methods, and a fore
taste of democratic dominance in national af
fairs, that should incite every honest man and
tax-payer in the country to the most earnest
endeavor to defeat the party of brigandage aad
fraud at the polls in November.
4. We have considered "what Lee and Jack
son would do If they were alive," and have
determined te employ our best energies in
preventing the seizure of the national govern
ment by their living comrades throufch the
frauds of a "solid south."
5. We congratulate the people of the state
epon its rapid increase of population and wealth
and upon the good measure of prosperity that
has rewarded their labor ; upon the rapid p
baildlng of our material interests since the suc
cess of resumption aud the revival of trade.
6. We pledge our support to such legislation
la congress, and such measures by state legis
latures as may be necessary to effect a correc
tion ef abuses, and prevent extortionate dis
crimination in charges by railroad corporations.
7. We most cordially Invite the aid and co
operation in this defence of the nation's
integrity, and the nation's purse, of nil republi
cans and war democrats who have differed
with us on temporal y issues, or have clung to
a party name, hitherto honored andespected.

The great jkucjIic i.i l.idia is the
bctei nut, of wliicii anjlo-Saxon
perhaps tortuuatcly know nothing.
The betel mi t is the seed of the areca
palm, which is extensively cultivated.
As nearly every native chews betel,
the consumption of areca nuts is in
credibly givat. In the l'hillipiues
the laborer is paid in betel rods as he
is with coo j t- e i cs in sonic parts of
Porn, and t:.e buu-l nut is one of the
mosi. val.ial.lo articles of produc-j in
Sumatra. -Tlie gieater part of tins is
land's export joes to China. Tho
bvtcl nut isaoout tho bizeof a cherry,
sliiilly pear bin ped, very hard, and
extern. illy not umike a nutmeg of in
ferior quant'. In India it is prepared
for chewing by being cur into lung,
narrow sir. ps, a. d wrapped in leaves
of the so-cllcd bo. el pepper, previous
ly dusted on osie side v;tn the quick
lime of c.t.ciiicd shells. In the Phil
ippines, a buyo, as the betel roll is
cal h d; is ottered to every one w ho enters
a hou-e, just as a pinch of snulT or a
pipe is in Western countries. Every
one who can afford it puts a fresh bayo
in his mouth every hour, which he can
chew and suck for half an hour at
least. The visible effects of the betel
arc that it promotes the flow of tlie
saliva and lessens perspiration. It
tinges the mouth, the teeth, and lips
with a viv.d red which is not orna
mental; but as an offset it imparts an
agreeable odor to the breath, an I is
supposed to fasten the teeth, cleanse
the gums, and cool the liioiilh. The
juice is usually, but not always, swal
lowed. On those who are accustomed
to use it, the betel exerts a weak but
continuous aud sustained exhilarating
influence. All throth Southern In
dia and the Spice Islands every person
who owns a bit of land usually grows
the leaves of thepar, or betel pep
per, for his own consumption. Only
tobacco, among the narcotics iu com
mon use, is consumed in larger quan
tities than the betel nut. In India be
tel forms the second great necessary of

There are some strange coins still iu
existence. A shilling piece was not
long ago found in England, which
showed on examination that the ob
verse and the iv vcr.se of the coin were
divided, but united by a lino screw,
lleing opened a half-penny was en
closed, w hicli also was divided; that
being op- ne t a farthing was enclosed,
and also divided; within the last a
half fat thing was similarly enclosed.
Tins elaborate penny is the same as
the old heavy penny of George III.,

eign beauty is over-estimated. In
Italy there is a sfiteiy beauty ot form
and richness of color among the peas
ants, accompanied by a stolid impas
s.vene.ss; the vaunied beauties of
Spam are dumpy little women, with
s.Jlow laces and no intelligence. Iu
Vienna a. one, of all the great cities in
Europe, beauty is as common among
women u it is in Si. Louis and Balti

tne Hungarians across the river. Iu
Paris there is a type of female beauty,
dainty, re lined sunt exquisite, but
fragile and delicate as the hot house
exotic, which it retcmbles.
Spiders enjoy a curious provision of
Nature which en.ibles them to live
under waer. The creature goes to the
surface of the water and moves all its
legs busily, just as if it were trying to
crawl out of the water. Suddenly it
gives a sharp jerk or kick, and uives
below the biirlacc. It then looks ex
actly as it it were surrounded by a
cac of polished silver, on ing to a
bubble of air which it has inclosed
between its long Liud legs. Besides
this there arc a number of smaller
bubbles which cling to the other legs,
and which can be added to the princi
pal bubble when needed. Tnis sup
ply of air is sufficient to last the spi
der for a considerable time.

A (I'ravc Question.
Ti: murderer of to-day is generally
u i iu-vinc ; but it is odd how un-
i riutrly your insane murderer picks
o'i! the very person he wants to wreak
his vengeance on. The dangerous
lunatics in the asylum don't select
their victims with such judgment.
They would just as soon kill ono man
as a:mt her, and sometimes a little rath
er. The insane murderer discrimi
nates, ho ctlculates, he worki up hi
lit a( the most timely moment, and he
wast s no force on people that he hat
no ji'udgs aain-d. No liap-haztrd-killiug
for him. His victims are se
lected Willi great care, and his killing
is tneivdiy done symmetrically and
successfully. Ah, tlie insane murder
er is the very upper crust ot iuuauity.
He makes liU mtrk iu the world.
He noes ujt live iu vain.
Collodion as a (Jcneratorof electricity.
Professor Guthrie ha sotye time
since utilized the mixture of collodion
and India rubber for this purpose,
and also given it a wider scope. As
regards electricity, it is very rem li k
able' that if you rub glass willi the
sheet of India rublcr and collodion,
negative electricity is excited, where,
ordinarily spcakim.', positive electric
ity, is generated. One of the appli
cations the Professor has given to this
collodio-caoutchouc is the form it ion
of miniature balloons for experiment
al purposes. An ordin u y glass tl isk
is first coated inside with collodion
by roiling the liquid roun I and r und
iiiside. When dried, a layer of Iu ti i
rubber is given to the collodion in the
atne way, an I then another layer of
collodion, and so on, till four or five
thicknesses of collodion are reached.
When dried, the linn is eisily de
tached by lifting it at the neck of the
flask, and pouring between it and the
glass a little acidulated water. The
balloon then comes out perfectly well
shaped, and ready to bo filled with
any gas which it may be desired to
try, and the neck is well secured by
waxed silk or any other suitable
means. In experimental physics there
seem to be many applications of this
medium, an I no doubt it will come
