He sat upright at the table at three
o'clock in the morning, for he had a
peculiarity of eonstitut on which, as ho
said, made his legs drunk long before
his head was touched. lie was still
talking gaily, if not brilliantly, though

carriage was announced. It was his
owicarriage, for he was then at the
summit of prosperity. His two men
servants, who knew well what they hail
to do. for they had had much practice
in doing it," came up-stairs into the
dining-room with his hat and shawl.
They drew back his chair, "put on his
bat," lifted his giant form in their arms,
and carried him down to the carriage
door. His American friend followed,
dumb with astonishment- Astouuded

suddenly of a disease caused and nour
ished by such excesses.
That such a man. so gifted and so
.vcll-disposed to use his gifts for the
public good, should pass away in h:s
prime was a melancholy event indeed:
but it was not the worst consequence of
his bad habits They marred and low
cjed all his writings, even the best, and
his powers diminished as his fame in
creased. We find that his works writ

denial and less true, than tlfose written

The reason of this is now well known.
Several men of science have pursued
courses of experiment with a view to
ascertain the precise working of alco
holic drinks in the human system.
There was an English Dr. Percy who
injected two omces aud a half of alco
hol into the stomach of a dog. The
animal dropped dead; wheronioB, the
doctor inatantlv removed the brain, and
distilled from it a very large proportion
of the alcohol which he had adminis
tered. The alcohol, as the doctor re
marked, had rusted to the brain, and
killed the dog as if by a blow upon the
jead. It was a blow m tlie head.
The brain of drinkers has been fre
mentlvusected,.amUit has been dis
covered tht the alcohol has permanent
ly distended the cells of which it is com
posed. It makes the brain coarse and
flabby; thus diminishing its force-

The gout which tormented the illustri

TWO SUPPOSABLE CASES.
I'laiiily IIliMtratSnj; What th Community
fiaiiift by the I.ijiior HiMinr.
Let us pursue th'.s further by means
of a couple of .supposed instances, such
as occur even' day. John Smith has
been, during the week, a capable and
industrious workman, earning full
wages every da Saturday night he
gcU his pay anil goes to the stores,
where he falls in with boon companions
aud spends his week's wages at the
grog-shop, standing treat and drinking
himself until his money is gone. Late
at night he is put out into the street
drunk, the liquor-seller Inlying got hi.i
money and b ing ready to close the
shop. Ke-ult the first: The liquor-seller
has received, say, twelve dollars, of
which at least three-quarters, or nine
dollars, is profit. Result the second:
Smith is arrested and put into the lock
up for the remainder of the night; in
th morning he is brought before a
magistrate and fined one dollar and
to-ts, amounting to at least five dollars,
and usually more, for want of which he
goes to jail for ten days. Result the
third: Smith's family applies to the
overseers of the poor for asi-tance,
and they, being unable to refuse, are
likely to xpeiid five or six dollars.
Total results, leaving out the moral
let rioration of Smith aud his family,
nine dollars profit to the liquor-seller,
cost' of pro.-e'Ut:ou paid by the county.
Smith and his family supported at the
expense of the town and county lor
ten days, and Smith's productive labor
for ten days lo-t to the community.
At the least, calculation, in order that
the liquor-seller may make his profit,
the community has lost much more than
an equal amount. In this instance 1
have supposed the liquor- miyer to spend
a full week's wages, but the coutiast is
,still greater if we Mippose. as is more
frequently the case, that the buyer has
only money sulhVetit to buy liquor
enough to cause his intoxication; that
he is arrested and committed to jail for
non-payment of line and costs. The
county then has the costs to pay, and
the liquor-.-el!er"s protit is only a very
small percentage of the expen.-e he has
eau-ed the community. Let us attack
his profit, wherever his trade is injuri
ous to the public, and we shall be in a
fair wav to drive him out of the busi
ness altogether, or to obl'ge him to ex
ercise such care in his management as
to deprive it of its harm. Cnrhum J)

How t!i Suffering Victim Nearly Always
Tkr the 1'urt or Tht-ir Urutal Op
jtrrnson. There never wa.s a time when sym
pathy, benevolence and philanthropy
were so active as now, but life is still
full of situations which seem incapable
of alleviation. Take the case of dniuk
ards" wives, and especially thewives o(
those drunkards who develop a ruffian
ly brutality under tlie influence of
liquor. It would seem surpri.-ing, wheni
me eonsiders the sutleringof thee poor
women, that there are not more ca-es
of husband-murder. Hut in fact the
victims of wife-beaters rarely seek re-;
venge. and as a rule tlvy encourage
their tyrants by a submissienes which
is the despa'r of magistrates and philan
thropists. Not a day passes but a score
of trampled wives refuse to testify
agaiit their brutal husbands and .some
of them will even perjure themselves
rather than assist the law in punishing
the crimes committed against them. A
very startling instance of this tendency
is the case of the poor woman who.e
eyes were deliberately put out by her
fiendish husband, yet who evidently
would not have informed against him
but for the action of neighbors. And
what a Hood of light is tluown on the
lives of a whole class of womn by the
remark of one of these neighbors that
she did not 'interfere before, because
she thought McCarron "wns only giving
his wife an ordinary beating." Every
policeman and ju-tiec knows that wife
beating is really as common in a cer
tain grade of society as this remark in
dicates, .anil probably neatly all these
men of experience woul I ?av that it is
hopelesss to try to stop it. because the

THE HESSIAN FLY.
Huttlt anil CharartfrUtir-i of an Agricult
In publishing Bulletin No. 1, descrip
tive of the Hessian' fiy, l'urdue Uni
versity of Lafa3elte, Ind., has done a
good thing for the interests of wheat
growers. This circular of ten pages
was prepared by Prof. F. M. Vebter,
of tho Unite I States BiireauVjf Entoimd
ogy, who will hereafter be connected
with Purdue University. He gives an
elaborate description, illustrated by two
plates, of the insect in its several states.
rof. Webster says: "The Hessian fly
is double brooded, the 'flaxseeds,' or
pupai ia. being found on the winter
wheat from late in the autumn, through
the winter, until the early part or mid
dle of April. The Mlax"eeds' of this
brood from one to twenty in number,
are situated b 'tween the stalk and
sheathing base of the leaf, at the roots 1
ot the young 'grain, slight lv beneath the'
surface of the ground.. The li.txseeds' I
of the second generation affect fie
wheat ia the iate spring and summer,
but are situated higher up, an ineh or
two above the surface of the ground, :it
the lower joints of the straw.'1
He then quotes Prof. F.teh as fol
lows: "In the ordinary course of
nature thurefore our crops of winter
wheat ar-t liable to two attrwks of the
Hessian lly. one generation reared in its
root producing another, which oc
cupies the lower joints of the stalks.
Thus the larv.e and pup-e are pre-ent

els. Afterward he peaked alxmt in

The fiction nfl S.'cretarv Lamar in
closing the Interior Department in re
spect for the mehiorv, of this man is an
indication that, ia the eyes of the pre
cnt Administration, there is no act com
mitted during or before the rebellion
provided it wasitone for the rebel cause
that is sufficiently disgraceful to de
bar its perpetrator from official honor
by the ex-Lonfoderate rulers in Wash
Following this precedent there is nc
reason whatever why. at the death ol
Jell" Davis, the War 'Department shall
not be closed in respect for his memory.
He was Secretary of War. as Thompson
was Secretary of the Interor. On the
day of Jeff iJ.iv.' funeral at even army
post throughout the country, hvo.der
of the War Department, the National
Hag will be hoeted at half-mast; the
oitfecrs will apear with crape on sleeve
and sword-hilt; the colors will be draped
in mourninjr and the drum-beat will be
mullled in fitting sorrow for this great
man's death. Tne foreigner who visits
Fort Wayne on that day will ask:
Wiry theic mourning emblems? What
American hero has passed away and
brought sorrow to the length and
breadth of the land?" And the Detroit
Fr!c i'rtss will doubtless answer him:
"The greatest leader of our party is
gone. "He started the fire in the front
and therefore deserves more credit than
Hendricks and ourselves who started
onh" the 'lire in the rear.' Circum
stances prevented him from receiving
the Democratic nomination for the Presi
dency: but every true Confederate
whether he marched under the stars
and bars in the Smith or schemed under
the fsaull- and -cross- banner of the
Knights of the Golden Circle in Indiana
and f Detroit will honor President
Cleveland fcr havinir honored the mem
ory fat Jefferson Davis.".
lo this complexion we have come at
lat If Jacob Thompson and Jeffer
son Davis are to be honored in death bv
tha whole Nation throuirh the ofiicial
aeis of the Democrat ie President it must
be becau.se the Democratic administrn-
tioa hd'oves that their deeds iu life de
served the respect and approval of the
whole American people. If this much
III' cone d d, why is Jefferson Davis not
fit for citizenship and National recogni
tion while living? hv should not his
disabilities Ihj removed at once to ena

V here was the harm in rebellion, any
how? If Jeff Davis is to bo honored, why
arc not the Confederate soldiers more
woithy of honor? They at least risked
their lives iu open buttle, aud they arc
cut t'cd to more consideration than such
Fiiakcs-fri-lhc-gras.s as Thompson and
Davis. 'If tjivsu two men receive the
honors that are accorded to all :reat
statesmen their cause can not have been
di.-dionorable. If the Confederate cause
was just why should not the Nation
Ion thu soldiers who fought for it?
not pay for Confederate slaves
and oilier rebel hisses? This is what is
coming if Democratic rule continues.
Let no man deceive himself by assum
ing that this is impossible. Let every
Union man go back in memory to the
mouth of Mutch, lb(3". Let him take
the Hies of the newspapers of that time
and rea I the list of losses on the battle
lield, aud nut himself iu the frame of
mind that he was iu when Jaeub Thomp
son and Jeff l)nis were striking at the
life and heart of the Nation. Let him
ask himself what, at that time, he would
have thought of the proposition to
"honor the memory" of Jacob Thomp
son aud JeJV Davis. Let him trace the
gradual effect of time upon his memory
until he can recall the period if he has
over rea'-hed it when he first could
have heard such a p'eee of news with
out a Hush of au;;er. Then let him com
pare the dates aud sec whether he was
not misled to ot; the Democratic ticket
about that t'mj. Or. if he has never
U'ea no misled, but has neglected to
vote at all. or has thrown away his vote
so as pract'cally to help the Democratic'
party. let him ask himself what there is
but the defeat of that party to prevent
the pensioning of ex-Confederates and
the payment Of rebel war-claims.
It won't do to laugh or sneer at it as
impossible. Twen'y years ago the Sec
retary of the Interior who should have
ordered the hanging of the National
Hag at haJf-m..s: for Jacob Thompson
would have needed a brigade to protect
him from hanging at fuit-mat hiiuelf.
To-day the Democratic party "hoLorsM
Jacob Thompson and Jell" Davis, and
our lirrcer pas-ions do not respond to
condemn it with that hysical violence
with which they once would haveSHiken:
but these "houors" mark the steps in
the steady progress of the Democratic
party ruled by the Southern Confeder
ates toward rebel pensions and relwl
war-cla ms. It remains to hv seen
wucmorme outnein Democrats can
gradually educate the Northern coplc
up to an indifference regarding the
issues ft r which the war was foight.
Let that indificrrnce spread to th" Union

What appears to be the correct thing
jn stovepipe hats is one with a six-and-a-quarter-inch
crown and a a two-inch
