The dramatic critic of the Troy
Chief knows a better trick than that
of writing his notice of Bernhardt in
French which none of his readers
would understand. He concentrated
his energies and his profound knowl
edge of the language of Paris into the
following brilliant mosaic of English
and French that is easily understood
by the most unclassical scholar, while
it will gratify the national pride f
Sara very much:
Bernhardt's forte lies in storming
her audience the first charge. She as
tounds you with her aplomb, and then
gathering all the force of her eclat she
produces an eclaircissement. That be
ing accomplished, the audience are
captured, and she sways them at her
will. Her voice is nonchalant and re
cherche, posessing all the mauvaise of
of the most refined espiegerie. A
scarcely perceptible b -n vivant in the
left eye gives a hauteur to her glance
that materially adds to the parlez vous
of her dishabille. And it is in the final
bete noir, when all her efforts culmin
ate and scintillate and effervesce in
one grand chevaux defrise, that she is
immense. Recovering her elan, and
exerting all the intense sang froid of
her nature, uttering a shrill qui yive
thai makes the aoi disant welkin ring,
she seems to burst off the entire tout
ensemble, until you see her whole honi
goit qui nial y pense. You shut your
eyes, open vour mouth, and sit shiver-i
ing like a dogswallowing bones. When
you again open your eyes the scene is
closed and Bernhardt is gotie. i

A noticeable fact in connection with
the endeavors of the citizens of the
Republican valley to rebuild their de
stroyed bridges is the confidence whh
which they look to the railroad com
pany for substantial assistance. The
most popular suggestion in several lo
calities is siated about thus: "Let us
raise ail we can by private subscrip
tion, and the rail load company will do
the baiauee." Is li.is the state ill
wiiiei: the bloated monopolies were
about to eat a suffering aud oppressed
people up raw ? 1 lie fact is that the j
li. &. M. R.iitroud company' and the j
people in iiie valley nave common
interest in all that pertains to the
development and improvement of the
country. The company owns much
valuable land there, and is interested
in having taxes low and having all the
moneys of the public expended to the
best advantage. There is no doubt
but that perfect harmony will exist
between the people and the railroad
in the matter of restoring the bridges
lo eel lie bets, and answer numerous
questions the New Yoik Spirit of the
limes has taken grv.it pains to ascer
tain the popular majority for presi
dent last vear. Finding there were
numerous errors in all the published
footings it took great pains to write to
the Secretary of State of each State,
for a true copy of the vote in that
state and from their figures after
careful footings and revisions it
authoritatively states that Garfield's
popular vote over Hancock and all
others was 3552. This ought lo settle
the matter as to who had the popu
lar plurality of votes.

South to break away from Bourbon

the minority must control the South
for the protection of t heir interests.
The Bourbons have overthrown the
majority for successive years; for the
most part openly, and have declaicd
that the end, w. ich was while domi
nation, justified the means. The Re
publicans say t hat they have appealed
for y ears for a free ballot, and now for
the first time iiere comes a man who
has a following and dares lo stand
squarely on the issue. It would be
cowardly now to deny hiia and his par

if they did they wouiu stand convicted
before the country as having merely
pretended to advocate a policy they did
not believe in and wouM not support
when they had the opportunity. It
has been made plain tfiat the only real
opposition on the part of the Deuio

is based on an

drunkeness which beer produces; the
difference being that while distilled
liquors excite and bum, beer stupefies
and rots the consumer. Among the
poorer cla.-,ss in Germany, large quan
tities of cheap gin, made chielly from
potatoes, and also a cheap article of
whisky, are extensively used, to grati
fy appetites first created by beer. The
government of Germany is at last
arousing to the fact that the nation is
in danger from the drinking habits of
hvr people. A bill has been lulroiiuued
into the Reichstag, providing that a
tax shall be collected on the retailing
of w ine, beer, and the stronger liquors.
The measure was advocated by the
Minister of Finance, not as he said, as
a means of increasing the revenue, but
"from the conviction that the use of
these beverages was rapidly and seri
ously deteriorating the health and
morals of the pet pie. and that the fu
ture prosperity of the nation was in
danger." So much for the fallacious
plea that the use of the lighter drinks

Maiuin Luthei: on Beek. "The
m in who fiist brewed beer was a pest
for Germany. Food must be dear in
all our land, for the horses eat up all
our oats, and the peasants drink all
our barley in the form of beer. I have
survived the end of genuine beer, for
it has now become small h:er in every
sense: and I have prayed to G.ul that
he might destroy the whole beer-brew-
ing business, and the first beer brewer j
I have often cursed. There is enough
barley destroyed in the breweries to
feed all Germany."
Dtt. Chakles Jewett, while argu
ing for prohibition, ouch said: "Why
not pour the rum into the gutter? It
is destined to the gutter at last; wh?
not pour it tlere at once, and not wait
to strain it through a man and spoil
the strainer in the work?"
