Looking at this matter without preju
dice and with a disjositiou to do exact
dtistice to the President, it must be said
iat the appointment of Pearson does
not indicate that Air. Cleveland "Is de
termined to apply the principles of
ci.-il-service reform in cases not within

It is all fudge for the, mugwumps to
attempt to make out that the Pearson
case had anv moral significance what
crer. Mr. Cleveland felt that he was
hylebted to that element He knew
Wry well that from the beginning the
people had been watcbiBg with latest
curiosity to i-cc in what -manner ho
would pay his debt to them. All of his
appointments had been of Democrats of
the straightcit ort. It pleased the
niugwumps all at once to make point
in favor of the retention of Tearson.
With singular unauimity they joined
from all over the country in making it
plain to him that the Xcw York post
ollice given to XVar.on for another term
would square obligations between them,
and at the satin; Lin; be nece;tc.l by
them as a s'gnal proof of It's adherence
to their favorite hobby. Cleveland saw
hi opportuuitv and paid h debt.
There is no doubt whatever that he
took that view of tin matter. If he had
not felt under obligations to the mug
wumps, and had ever' reason to believe
that the course he adopted would dis
charge th'in, Mr. I'earson would not
have been reappointed. It is well
known that other considerations re

bir. hM course so far shows that, pro-
cceding with delilieration, he will re
move all Itepublican office-holders
above the gra led service and fill their
places with Democrats. If this is not
so does any one suppose that such men
as Clarke, Crowell, Chesley, and many
others whose heads have fallen, would
have been btipplautc 1 bv men who can
not possibly fill their places with equal
cMieicney until years spent in oflicu
shall have made them equally ac
quainted with the duties incident to
their positions? Elliciency, honesty
and fidelity in the discharge of ollieial
duties are qualities that Mr. Cleveland
no doubt appreciates, but no act of his
indicate that they will operate to pre

make way for Democrats, unless, a in
Pearson's case, there is a point to bo

more, we have proof from his alleged
admissions, as published in the Sunday

During recent vears much has been
written about the culture of the potato.
All the various phases of the subject
hn7e been treated, from the breaking
of thu ground to the disposal of the
crop in market.
We have learned much as to the
mechanical preparation of the soil, of
manures and fcrt.li.ers, as well as the
general treatment of the crop during
growth. Single eye. two eyes, half and
whole potato planting, was discussed
ami advocated by dillcreut writers.
The arguments for single-eye cultiva
tion are: More large tubers, closer
planting, and consequently a more
My investigations into the so-called
"eye." of the potato convince me that
single-eye planting is in moit pltnts in
accordance with the natural laws of
growth. We all have seen how a vig
orous shoot on some tree or shrub has
absorbed the sap so that smaller shoots
below very slowly developed or eventu
ally died oft. The so-called law of "Sur
vival of the Fittest," would seem to be
well illustrated in the growth of our
hiirh fore-t trees, by the vigorous
growth of the topmost branches and
dea'h of the lower ones.
Since the potato tuiier is nothing else
than an underground bratfh, what we
call an eye is" analogous to a 1 -af or
tlower-bud on branches above ground,
many of these bud producing a num
ber of leaflets or Mowers, as In t':e ca-e
of the cherry or apple. The same num
ber of shoots are pro luced by the eye
of the potato; thus, in examining them
under a microscope, we find from one
to ic germs in an eye. la t'ie Early
Ko-c I seldom met with more than
three, while lhirbank. Heauty of Hebron
and Snowllako have as high as six
germs or bud-'. Now, in all 1 have ex
am n-d, I invariably found the central
germ to be from two to four times the
ie of any of the others; some which
had sprouted to the length of nearly an
inch were examined, and in a few in
stances onlv showed anv of the minor
germs which had doubtless been ab
sorbed by the central one. Again the
ew that were hMt did not increase in
size, showing that the more vigorous
growth of thcccu'r.il germ prevents the
development of the minor one.
The presence of th; minor germs (or
buds) i-i a wisi provision of nature. In
cse of an accident to tltc main germ,
minor ones will, more or le-s
develop, and in this wav they serve to
preserve the sjcc.e.s. m Letting potatoes
.sprout bef re plantiug". and then rub
b.ng them off, must uecessjirily Le in
jurious to the eyes, as it requires the
development of the minor germs-, wh'eh
w.ll be we-iker. unless an abundant sup
ply of plant food is at baud, and the
weat. er is favorable at the tme of
planting. If this central or main germ
i allowed to develop, we get one vig.
orous plant, and may expect large
tubers; win e, on the other hand, if the
eye is forced to develop its minor germ-.,
they w.ll all h'ive an equal chaiW. and
the" result will be probably from two to
tive stalk-', noil" of which will be strong
enough to p-oduee larg" tulwjrs.
Here it s. ems to nta an advantage i
t b gained by tiding a stimulat ng fer
tilir.er"in the hill or iri 1. s.n e thai will
aid the vigorous growth of t :e main
germ in such a way as that the minor
germs will, perhap-. not develop, and
one strong plant will be the result.
Many writers have found differences

Saturday, April 15, om which Abra
ham Lincoln died at an early henr. was
s. di-mal day, in harmony with the
mournful occasion tiiat shrouded all
hearts in gloom, and robed the city and
the country in weeds of woe. It was a
day in as marked contrast with that
which preceded it as the fecliags which
on the one animated and on the other
depressed the public mind. From dawn
till dark the weather was cheerless,
cold, damp aad drizzly. The heavens
were hung with black. A faint tinge of
roseate light Hushed the western hky as
the sun went down, and that was the
only gleam of light that penetrated the
universal gloom. If ever nature sym
pathized with man since the time when
the sun was darkened and the dead
walked the streets of Jerusalem and ap
jeared to surviving friends, it certainly
seemed to do so on the memorable day
which ushered in the saddest news that
ever fell upon the ears of the American
The hush of profound dejection hung
over the city, and a weight of grief
gnawed hungrily at men's heart..
Stores were opened, but no buvers went
in, and none were wanted. The shock
had fallen with stunning effect upon
every honest bosom. The brutality of
the deed was inconceivable, and the
blow to the Nation overwhelming. The
novelty of the crime in the republic
made its deformity more hideous. It
teemed as if we had turned over a new
page in history, and become suddenly
possessed of new natures and new des
tiniesthe one baleful and ungoverna
ble, and the other leading to ship
wreck just as wo 'were sailing into
port with every pennon fluttering aud
the sound of joyous cannon still beating
in our ears.
The transition from a city decorated
for victory to a city hung with mourn
ing, had a tragic etlect that made the
reaction overpowering. The Hags were
furled in crape, and festoons of sable
drajery, heavy as if with tears, crept
from window to window. The bolls
which rang gaily the day before tolled
slower than men's sinking puLses. Ere
noon arrived the whole city was hung
in black. The blinds of the palace were
closed as if the corpse lay in the house,
und bunches of crape were tied to tho
crazy shutters of the negro hovel, where
the inmates, perhaps, robbed them
selves of bread to purchase the sorrow
ful emblem. Shrouded portraits of the
blunt, kindly face, side by sale with
Washington's, were placed in windows,
and were looked on with eyes that grew
mo.st and ran over. The grief was not
noisy it was profound, unspeakable.
. President Lincoln had occupied the
cveniug previous at Ford's Theater, two
boxes wli ch had been thrown into one.
His party consisted of only four per
sons himself and wife. Miss Harris and
Major Kathbonc; but one of the hoses
was occupied. A man was observed
br an officer standing iu the adjoining
box for a minute or two before the ca
tastrophe. Mr. Lincoln and his party
were in line spirits, chatting and ob
serving the play. At a moment when
the eyes of all four were fixed on the
stage a pistol-shot was heard, and the
first impression of every one was that
it was fired on the stage. So thought
Major Kathbonc, until, looking around,
no saw sinoku and a man with a drawn
dagger in h;s hand. The truth indls

seized the uukuowu man with both
hands by the lappcls of his coat. A
mementary seuflle ensued, in which the
assassin made a thrust at the Majr,
graziug his bt-ast and piercing his left
arm near "the shoulder. Something
seemed to give way about the man's
coat collar; he got loose and disap

A SENSITIVE ENGINEER.
"It beats all." remarked an old rail
road man, "how sensitive the nerves
of engineers are when they are on
their runs. Their perceptions arc won
derfully keen and delicate. The ex
perienced engineer can tell by the very
pull' of his engine if everything is
right with the train behind him. And
as for signals, why. no matter how
peculiarly or under what disad vantages
thev are given, engineers learn to read
the meaning of the signaler almost as
if they were standing by his side.
When they are out on the road, es
pecially at night, engine men are alert.
All their senses are on edge, as it were,
ready to see, hear, feel or smell signs
of danger. Did you ever hear of dim
Fielding, the fireman? Xo? Well. Jim
is dead now; he never got an engine
he was a sharp one. Drink was hi
weakness.. He was a slave to whisky.
Rut when he was on a night run hi
perceptions were as keen as tho-e of
any man I ever heard of. If you never
heard of dim of course you never heard
how he prevented a wreck one night iu
'78. That was the bigge-t thing dim
ever did. and so nicely illustrates my
idea that I'll have to tell it. A bridge
had been washed out. and as the track
walker who discovered it started to
signal the approaching passenger train
he fell down, broke his lantertf and the
wind blew the blaze out. The night
was as dark as pitch, and he had no
dry matches, nor no time to experi
ment, either. for the train.
No. 8, was coining round the
curve. Suddenly he remembered tint
Jim Fielding was firing Xo. 8 that night
and a happy idea struck him. Pulling
a bottle of whi-ky from his pocket he
held it in his baud. Just as the engine
of twenty reacln-d him he jerked the
cork out'aud threw some of the liquor
in the air. Exactly as he thought. Jim
smelled the liquor and told the engineer
to stop. Jim always wanted to stop
where there was liquor. He made the
engineer believe he had seen a dan
ger signal, and saved the train. That
was one of the finest examples of keen
perception that I have ever heard of
