WASHINGTON LETTER :
Washington , D. C. } July 20 , ' 84.
Congress provided just before ad
journmcnt for the appointment of one
hundred and fifty special examiners ii
the Pension Office in addition to the
number now employed. What peculiar
qualifications arc necessary for an intcl
ligcnt discharge of thcdutjcsof an exam
iner I don't know , but the Civil Service
commission is going too hold'its class
meetings all over the country , beginning
next Saturday , for the purpose of exam
ining into the proficiency of the proposet
examiners. The delectable feature oi
the business lies in tlie fact that there
arc some hundreds of applicants for
Governmental positions who have al
ready passed an examination , by the com
mission , and , of these hundreds , just
four have been provided for , only one
of whom has found a place in the Inter
ior Deparmcnt ! From this statement
it can be ascertained to some degree of
accuracy how much of a show there will
be for the hundreds of applicants who
will present themselves for examination
for this position of special examiner , a
position , by the way , which will doubt
less be filled as all the rest of them have
been , by drafts upon the Census Bureau
and relays from other departments.
The withdrawal of Wilbur -Storey ,
of the Chicago Times , from the field of
journalism may notbe a serious matter
now , when the newspaper has practically
perfected itself in its great mission , butte
to Mr. Storey more than any other man ,
living or dead , is the credit due for the
tremendous enterprise which has been
brought to the making up of the great
journals ( of the day. It was always the
aim , as it was the pride and boast of Mr.
Storey , to get the news and lay jt before
his readers before all competitors. For
the accomplishment of this he spared
neither labor , expense , diligence or du
bious methods , in which money consid
erations too often entered , and thus was
tie enabled to inaugurate a system of
newspaper work which every large
paper in the country was compelled to
adopt , and the great public was the
gainer by it. For some years Jtlr. Sto
rey has taken no active part in the man
agement of the Times , nor was it nec
essary , for every writer upon the paper
cnew exactly what the old man's no
tions were , and governed themselves
accordingly. Mr. Storey , of course ,
made a fortune out of his enterprise , to
ake care of which it has recently been
ecouic necessary to appoint a conserv-
itor , as the old man's brain has soften [
ed , and his days of usefulness gone
The usual muddle caused by the in
decent , haste with which measures are
rushed through Congress in the closing t
lours of the session , is developed in the
otter-carriers' vacation bill , which ,
gives these employes fifteen days of jun- "
ceting without making appropriations
or the payment of their substitutes for ai
more than seven days. There is no
more propriety in bestowing a half a c ;
month's time upon this class of em
ployes than there is for paying any other
class of Government laborers twclye
and "a half months' pay for twelve
months of labor , which the Solicitor of es
the Treasury has solemnly declared that esP
the Government has not the right to do. P
While it may be admitted that the letter- tc :
carrier is eminently deserving of any is
ind every privilege that the Government si
las the power to grant , he cannoi expect tl ;
receive favors that must necessarily tlai
work detriment to the public service. aici
Ic has a good salary , is morally certain ci
of retaining his situation so long as he cic : <
jehaves himself , has no docked time on
account of weather or holidays , and
altogether he is about as well provided aiai
or in the line of receiving favors as a ai
reasonable person ought to expect Its aio1
a notable fact besides , that almost
Tom the time of the inauguration of
the system of mail delivery , these lettere <
Barriers have been organizing and combining - , r
bining among themselves for increased :
pay ; , and ether privileges which the le
Government has as regularly allowed re
them , as it has steadily refused them to ta
ather classes of employes. tah
The great scarcity of one and two dollar ;
lar greenbacks will soon be at an end , )
% the Government has set its priming al
presses at work to print them until the >
ippropriation therefor is exhausted ,
rhc issues of ones will amount to some
sixty-six millions , and the twos to about re
tairty-eighf millions , which in addition
the present circulation is thought to e
ample to meet all present needs. >
DOM PEDRO. it
LET us take it easy. Let us not
begin to get hot and mud about
politics right here in the dog days ,
with the election four months off.
Let us take it coolly and gracefully
and peacefully , and let the unfortunate
fellows in the October states do the
sweating and fretting for the present.
This , of course , is dropped us a tempo
rary suggestion , to be determined by
the environment of time , place and
circumstance. But there is one ad
monition as to political conduct that
we desire to engrave upon the mind
of every republican. Make all your
election bets cash. If a rash and im
portunate democrat offers to back up
his wind with the money , and you feel
that you must garner him in , be sure
the money is put up in the hands
of a reliable stakeholder. Such a
course will no doubt greatly reduce
the number of bets , but it will add
largely to the gathered harvest after
election. These Topics know a man
who makes two or three hundred dollars
lars a year by making election bets
on credit , and then collecting what
he wins but failing to pay his losses.
It is wrong to bet , but if you do , bet
cash. This is the law and the profits.

A RECENT telegram to the New ,
York Herald from Mexico states that ,
the nomination of Cleveland is receiv
ed with great satisfaction by the Mex
icans. This must be very pleasing
news to Mr. Cleveland. He now
has the support of the British lion
and the Mexican greaser. The Mex
ican greaser is laboring under the im
pression that Blaine will invade and
capture his country. Immediately af
ter Mr. Elaine's nomination a Mexican fi
paper advised the utmost vigilance on
the part of the national guard , the
arming of private citizens and prep
arations to prevent the threatened
invasion by the plumed knight. It
is probably for the same reason , if the
truth could be known , that the British
lion now roars for Cleveland. He is
perhaps afraid that Blaine and Logan ,
will invade Canada and annex it to
the United States.
A SINGLE bitter word may disquiet
in entire family for a whole day. One
surly glance casts a gloom over the
household ; while a smile like a gleam
jf sunshine , may light up the darkest
ind weariest hours. Like unexpected
lowers which spring up along our
aath , full of freshness , fragrance and
jeauty , so kind words and gentle acts wg
ind sweet dispositions make glad the g
jacred spot called home. No matter
low humble the abode , if it be sweet- S
jned with kindness and smiles , the G
leart will turn lovingly toward it tl
"rom all the tumults of the world , tib
ind home , if it be ever so homely , b
vill be the dearest spot beneath the cc ;
ircuit of the sun.

THE cholera situation in France is
Becoming very serious. The fatal and
jpidemic character of the disease is
jstablished beyond question. The
problem now is , can it be restricted
o the district already affected ? This
hardly possible , though it was done
successfully in Egypt last year. But
here military authority was invoked ,
ind travel absolutely stopped by a .
ordcu of rifles through which no one _
ould pass. Such a blockade cannot
je established in a thickly populated
ind civilized country and the chances
ire that the plague will spread all
ver the world.
A SUMMER house for cats has been Si
jstablished by a lady in Boston , and w
here are 700 feline inmates. The is
eaders of the independents go there is
egularly for their inspiration and to
ake lessons in harmony. The cats are
lannonious , but on a basis that ap- re"i
lies to them and the independents "i
ilike. Each cat is locked in a ca e to
y itself. cc

THE overdress is more and more
frequently worn with downward plaits

SINGLE bangles are attached by a
ribbon to handsome parasols , to sljp

SLIPPERS for the house are cut very
low in front , and have their box toes
more sharply pointed than shoes.
WHITE China silk is being exten
sively "used for underclothing. It is
soft and silky , and delightfully cool.

LAPIS-LAZULI is both prettier and
more becoming than navy blue , and
is the blue of the season in both dress
fabrics and trimmings.
JERSEYS are finished with velvet
collars and cuffs. Almond-colored
and cream-white jerseys are stylishly
used over ecrufoulard skirts.
PRETTY lamp-shades for the sum

LITTLE girls' dresses of sateen have
sntire bodies of sateen gathered to a
yoke of embroidery , the skirt being
finished with a three-inch hem and a
ruffle of embroidery below.
YOUNG girls wear peasant-waists ,
corselets of velvet over guimpes

small puffs for sleeves. The skirt is
arnamented with bows of velvet to

Too many ostrich tips are not in
rood ( taste on the summer hats. The
jrainsboro shape so much worn by
he picturesque young ladies for some
ime past is quite passe , and will not

ons5dered in style.
HAND-PAINTED sashes of silk or
atin , in pale or dark colors , will be
imch worn this summer over simple
louse dresses of French muslin , or-
randie and lawn. With more dressy
oilets for the evening , graceful little
ileeveless jackets are made to match.
THE little Princess Mercedes , eldest
laughter of the King and Queen of
Spain , and called after his first wife ,
much admired and talked about.
She is said to be like her mother ,
ueen Christina. The princess ap-
ears daily in public , and when her
mtriders are seen on the streets or
mblic promenades every one stops to
jet a glimpse of the pretty little thing ,
summer and winter she wears pure
vhite , and even the small chair which
fixed upon the seat of her carriage
covered with white satin upholstery.
THERE are indications of a general
esurrection day for politicians who arc
'out of politics. " They arc beginning
spring up Pho2iiix-like all over the
lountry with an astounding spontaneity
only to be "out of politics" for a
cason once more.
