NEARLY every day brings to light tli ;
some peculiarity in the make up of
Grovcr Cleveland. In reply ta letter tc :
congratulation which also contained
request for the genealogy of the gov-
srnor , Mr. Cleveland said among other Of
things , "I have never been very much ti
"interested in my genealogy. " Recent ll !
icvelopuients indicate the truth of the
assertion ; Grover is more concerned
this year about his offspring than about si.
Iris ancestors. Ex. 0
THE idea advanced by Col. 0. M. i
Druse that much of the fatality among
zattle in Wyoming is due to eating a
tvced is doubtless quite correct as far as
goes. The deadly loco weed isvell
known , and is probaly the cause of most
the deaths on the plains. But the
recent outbreak at Maxwell is too
3learly traceable to the trail of freshly
imported Texans to be attributed to bz
that cause. sc
Washington , D. C. , August 18 , ' 8-1.
Between Ben Butler , the bete noir
of politicians , and Steve Elkins , the
Titanic dispenser of "soap , " the pres
ent campaign promises to reach the
bottom of the depravity that attaches
to our political system. Not only are
offices and high political positions
made the objects of bargain and trans
fer J , but pledges are made that huge
Congressional ( jobs , in aid of railroad
and other corporate monopolies , shall
be put through as a reward for the in
tercession of these powerful influ
ences. Jay Gould could well afford
to put a hundred thousand dollars in
the Indiana contest four years ago , be
cause he got it back in ten fold ratio
in the friendly legislation that follow
ed , and the Republican party took
Stanley Matthews and put him upon
the bench of the highest court in the
United States to look after Jay
Gould's interests besides. It is this
kind of "boodle" that is running- the
present campaign , for what amount of
potency would there be in the paltry
contributions wrung from the Govern
ment employes 'i
One of the most interesting and in
structive of the departmental reports
is that proceeding from the Commis
sioner of Education. The volume em-
braces eleven hundred pages , and ex
hausts the subject of education in
America so far as the statistics are
concerned. With a school population
of sixteen million in the country ,
there are six million who attend school
out of the ten million enrolled.
There are two hundred and ninety-
three thousand teachers , to whom was
paid last year ninety-one millions of
dollars. Upwards of one-half of the
number of teachers were women ,
whose salaries are gradually getting
to a figure near to the just proportion
of that of the male teachers. Why a
man should receive one hundred dollars
lars per month for the duty that a wo VI
man is required to perform for forty VIft VIC
or fifty dollars , is not comprehended ft
by the ordinary mind. While the is
colored population send eight hun
dred and three thousand of its child m
ren to school in the South , the whites &
in the Southern States with double fi
the number of school population send
only half as many more to school !
There are eight thousand colored pu
pils in normal schools , six thousand
six hundred in academies , and two
thousand three hundred in colleges.
There are half a million of students
pursuing studies above and beyond
the 1 elementary schools , that is , the
higher branches of education , and up
ward of twenty-three thousand ministers
isters , doctors , lawyers , and scientific
men emerge from the colleges every
vearwith , the doctors decidedly in the hsai
ascendency. Dr. O'Donnell. minus ai
lis sample lepers , has been here and 01
delivered his lecture on leprosy. It tl
turns out that the doctor is simply an b
inti-Chinese emigration agent , dele
gated with authority to show up the ln
loathsomeness of the disease and consequently - h
sequently the dangers that beset us n
from contact with the Chinese , who
seem to have the sole monopoly of
he : infection. Whatever may be the cit
sentiment of the general public upon tw
he Chinese question , there is no dis w
puting the fact that it was not ready aJ
tolerate O'Donnell's lepers who risi
lave thus far been kept in the back sifi
ground and out of sight. The people fi
f the far off Pacific coast who are ai
threatened with Chinese invasion , can T .
iiardly expect to find the same antip- "
ithy to the moon-eyed children of the
un . among the Eastern people , and
D'Donnell's errand has only had the
endency to enlist sympathy for a peota
jle who are the only people to demy
Mistrate the existence of a purely s _
scriptural disease , whose loathsomem
icss is more imaginary than real.
The horrible part of the Greely fc (
Arctic business has come to light in p ]
he recital of the sufferings by starvaat
ion and the dreadful resort to canni-
jalism. We have therefore the reaai
son for the recovery of but 11 of the In
18 bodies of those who died upon the
frightful shore of Cape Sab inc. The
other seven were eaten by their com
rades , who were thus enabled to sus
tain life long enough.to greet the res
cuing party. For this hideous chap
ter of the Greely expedition there is
grave responsibility resting some
where , and the most proper place foi
it is the signal office , whose chief offi
cer , Gen. Haxen , has exhibited eithci
consummate ignorance and imbecili
ty , or a total disregard of the teach
ings or impulses of a common human
ity. Had established provision de
pots at the points designated by Lieut
Greely , and in accordance with the
explicit promise that he made to so
establish them , this horror would have
been entirely avoided. But Haxen ,
like many another army officer before
him , became so profoundly impressed
with his superior knowledge of the
Arctic country and the necessities of
its explorers , that he left at a single
point 1,000 rations for a starving and
ice-beleagured crew , and brought
home 49,000 rations that should have
been distributed along the shore of
Smith's Sound , as had been faithfully
promised. Is such a man as this fit
to hold such a position a day longer ?
THE bustle has ac last reached a
stage of usefulness. Mrs. Bahrman ,
wife of a New York optical instru
ment dealer , who arrived from Eu
rope , recently , had 1,000 glass eyes
concealed in her bustles , Avhich were
taken by custom-house inspectors.
A IIEUNION of Brigham Young's fam
ily occurcd the other day at Salt Lake.
Over 200 were present. Artemus
Ward's tale of his experience at Salt
Lake where he generously gave family
tickets to two of the principal citizens
to his great moral show , and they pack
ed the house so that no paying specta
tors could get in is .vindicated.

vided this fall. Miss Anthony , Mrs.
Cady Stanton and Mrs. Liverniore arc
For Elaine ; Miss Lillic Devereaux Blake
for Cleveland , antl Miss Willard is for
St. John. But just wait till Ben Butler
marshals his hosts and we. shall sec a
galaxy of distinguished ladies at the
front. Old Ben is a regular charmer.
THE vigorous protest made by the citi
zens of Berlin against the constant pi
ano-pounding in that great musical cen
ter , has led a Philadelphia ! ! to invent a
simple method by which the volume of
sound may be reduced at will four-fifths.
Phe suffering men and women who have
felt that there was no relief from the
persecutions of the piano fiend can now
take courage for their deliverance is
MONTANA takes the cake for an early
liarvest this year. Within the past
month her industrious citizens have shot
hung fifty horse thieves. Xot that
they : care so much for their horses , but
jccausc they desire to encourage immi
gration. It is claimed that only one
man has suffered amiss. In this case ,
iiaste resulted in a mistake of identity.
Due apologies have been made to the
Family through the public press.
KUSSKT.T. H. TKVIS of St. Louis , who
created much excitement in that city
two years ago by shooting a man with
whom his wife was too intimate , being
ifterwards divorced from and remar
ried to the woman , has committed
suicide. He made demonstrations
first ] as if to shoot his wife , but she fled
md he turned his pistol on himself.
Hie happiness and trust of wedded
life once vanished can never return.
THE Chinese had a battery of Krupp
juns at Kelung , but they were unable to
xill any Frenchman with it and it was
taken without bloodshed. No greater
Blunder was ever made by China than
spending a lot of money for arms and
inanitions that her soldiers do not un-
lerstand or are afraid to use. Had the
jesicged garrison at Kelung been sup
plied with stinkpots , big fire crackers
md ponderous"match lock muskets , they
ivould have doubtless made a better fight
md their defeat would not have been so
