Will continue one week longer. On account of many of our help being1 off for their holidays ,
we were quite unable last week to wait on all our customers , and have decided to continue one
week more , to give all the same opportunity to get these goods at wholesale prices. Take ad
vantage of this opportunity. It is many years since we did anything like this before , and likely
to be many years before we do it again.

Washington correspondent , who inude
u tour of Itussia , last Hummer , has in the
proas of the Lorborn company , Halti-
moro , ( i hook utulor tlio title "A Iloosior
in Russia , " which deals wifh the Rus
sian empire , its people , nihilism , Si-
boriu and the exile system , and other
features of the empire of the only white
tsivr , which will undouhtcdly attract
considerable attention. Ono of the
chapters is a defense of nihilism by
Scrgius M. Stepniak , the worltl-re-
nownud nihilist. This is followed by a
chapter upholding Russia's present
form of government , her rofubnl to edu
cate her subjects , the remarkable spy
and p'issport systems , and the system of
oxtlo to Siberia. The chapter was fur
nished by Count Charles do Arnaud , a
n native Russian , who participated in
the Crimean war , and was witli General
Grant at Shiloh. Owing to the intimate
relation- Count do Arnaud with the
Russian legation in Washington , and
the remarkably logical grounds taken
in do fun so of the Russian system , it is
boliovcd thut the chapter was inspired
by if not written at the Russian lega
tion. It is , probably , the strongest defense -
fonso ever made of the Russian form of
govoi-iunont , und is in part as follows , :
"Much of the information obtained
by journalists , travelerb and casual students -
dents while in Russia is wholly mislead
ing. Failing to understand the lan-
gungo , habits and peculiarities of the
natives , they obtain their facts from sojourners -
journors who have no sympathy with or
interest in the country ; from foreign
ers who have taken up their residence
there and are as unnpprociativo and
projiulicod as themselves , from the few
natives known to the world as nihilists ,
who got their inspiration from Bakou-
nlnKrapotkino and other disciples , and
from still other sources which are tnoro
Insidious in their methods and success
ful in their aims to array the Knglish-
Bpcaking people of the world against
Russia by constantly crying oppression
and dohpotsm. I refer to Kngland ,
English diplomacy and the English
prosi. They are evidently moved b >

Which the tsar is pictured as n savage
cspot , who delights in torturing his
ubjects , and has np care or concern for
, heir welfare. I have known the pres-
mt tsar , Alexander III. almost since
iis infancy , and can assure you that ho
s one of the most accomplished , liberal
xntl enlightened monarchs tiiat over
bat upon a throne ; a monarch who con
stantly studies the welfare of his peo-
> lo ; a monarch who is mild mannered ,
jcntlo and kind , and who continually
itrivos to ascertain the needs of his biib-
eeU , and oven now stands ready to
idopt whatever system of government
would be most conducive to the welfare
of Russia. For those qualities he is
ilmost worshiped by the people , all re
ports to the contrary notwithstanding.
"Russia is much larger in area than
the United States , and has a population
of nearly ono hundred millions , made
up of a great many ditleront races and
tribes , speaking as many languages ,
differing in habits , religion and modes
of life , and in many cases having boon
enemies long ago. Anyone acquainted
with the history of its rapid rise and
progress will readily acknowledge that
Lho Romanoff dynasty has built substan
tially and bolidly with diborganizod and
discordant material , carrying the people
ple forward from the primitive to their
condition to-day. And all this has boon
accomplished under the present form of
government. Yet the nihilistic cry ,
which seems to bo most ollectivo now
and upon which they endeavor to jus
tify their dastardly attempts upon the
life of the emperor , is his refusal to es
tablish a constitutional government.
Americans may look upon such a de
mand as most reasonable' but if they
understand the situation and look at it
from the standpoint of a patriotic Rus
sian they will readily see their mistake.
"There is no demand among the
great ma&3 of the Russian people for
such a change. Suppose a constitu
tional government had boon established
before the liberation of the serfs. Could
the much-lamented Alexander II. , with
a stroke of his pen , have boon able to
free 2(1,000,000 of them ? When wo recall -
call how much blood and treasure wore
expended to secure the freedom of only
4,000,000 of people in the United
States , wo can form some idea of what
the undertaking would have been
in Russia. Then , instead of only
a south , like wo had , slavery extended
over the whole empire , and the parlia
ment would have neon fully controlled
by the slave-owners. The aristocracy
and landed proprietors would have boon
ma&tcrs of the situation without fear of
interference , and they would have
taken care not to allow their slaves to
bo freed. This great act of the so-callod
despotic government of Russia ought to
outweigh nearly all the charges , true
and untrue , niado by its enemies.
"But there are several otherunassall-
blo objections to a Russian parliament.
"Such a body , which must include
representatives of all the classes , creeds
and nationalities , would bo a Babel of
confusion and a Bedlam of conflict
ing Interests : Imagine a parliament
ary body composed of Poles , Germans ,
Cossacks , Tartars , Mohammedans ,
Greek Catholics , Roman Catholics ,
Turkomans , Jcw.s , Copts , and scores of
other "wholly dissimilar races and na
tionalities , bitterly opposed , antago
nistic to each other. Could such a
body legislate for a great empire like
Rubsla ? Would the same legislation
answer for the Tartar and Polo , , for the
Mohammedan and the Roman Catholic':1 :
I believe not : and I am confident that
constitutional government Is not wan toil
in Russia except by a few idle dreamers
and enthusiasts.
"It will require very many years to
educate the Russians up to the proper
appreciation of constitutional govern
ment , oven at the rapid rate of progress
made under the Romanoff dynasty.
And unt'l this education is accomplished
centralization of newer is in the hands
of the tsar and his counselors ; and the
judicious exorcise of the same is the
only governmental system capable ol
saving Russia from dismemberment and
disruption. The division of the empire
into provinces ruled directly by a gov
ernor appointed by the tsar and a coun
cil selected from among the people
thereof amounts to practical local self-
government ; and the erection of each
of the many distinct nationalities Into
separate provinces removes all danger
of a clashing of Interests such as would
be sure to result from any imperial par
liamentary system. Another and bv no
means a lessor advantage to bo derived
from this system is the gradual and
healthy assimilation which is going
steadily forward , and which will surely
result in breaking the tribal and racial
barriers now operating to the disadvan
tage of the country.
"Tho criminal law of Russia , of which
wo hear so much unfavorable and un
just criticism , is nothing more than the
cede of Napoleon , with a few minor
changes. The charge that the admin
istration of the criminal law Is harsh
and tyrannical is a libel on the judi
ciary of the empire , which has been the
first of the great nations to abolish the
death penalty. There Is no capital pun
ishment in Russia , except in aggravated
cases of high treason , such as attempts
on the Hfo of the c/.ar. But the im
partiality with which the law is enforced -
forced is proverbial. Prince and peas
ant are equally punished for equal of
fenses ; and the rigor with which the
former are handled for transgressions
against th/j law is a matter of history.
"Wo are told in glowing language
that free speech and a free press are
myths in Russia ; but wo are seldom told
the true reason why. Wo are not told
that among an o.\cltablo and warlike
people , such as are many of the Russians
who retain much of their old turbulent
spirit , the free press and free speech of
demagogues and anarchists would pro
duce chaos and bloody revolution , in
which there would bo no safety for life
or property. Even in free America there
is a limit to free speech and free press ,
as was shown in the conviction and ex
ecution of the anarchists in Chicago ,
and the imprisonment ol Hcrr Most in
the city of New York. The aim of the
Rus-iian olompntis to curb this clement ;
and it , goes without saying that it is jus-
tilicd in taking n hundredfold more
vigorous measures than are taken in
America , Generally the seed of dem
agogy falls by thowaysldo or is dropped
upon rooks in this republic , whore it
withers and dies ; but in Russia it 11 nils
far more congenial climate and fruitful
"I insist that the Russian system of
banibhmont to Siberia ib far more humane -
mane than the English method of dis
posing of political prisoners. How
many Irishmen have languished and
died , or were broken in health and
spirit in English prison dungeons ? and
yet wo hoard no outcry against Eng
land. The situation in Russia to-dav
is certainly preferable to that created
by English coercion in Ireland.
"Tho passport system , which is said
to bo so obnoxious to American and
European merchants and tourists , is
really an absolute necessity as an agency
for the suppression of crime. The po
lice and detective systems have not at
tained anything like the perfection enjoyed -
joyod in America and elsewhere , while
the demand for thorn is much greater.
The wonderful skill by winch the
names and careers of criminals are all
recorded and their movements watched
is almost unknown in Russia. Every
town and hamlet is not connected with
its neighbors and with the great cities
by electric currents , as Is the case hero.
By the systematic use of all those ad
vantages America and other equally
favored nations are enabled to maintain
law and order and the security of lifo
and property without resort to the repressive -
pressivo measures needed In Russia.
The best substitute for those ad
vantages is the passport system , and it is
not only a necessity , but is demanded
by the educated and law-abiding people
of the empire as a means of sclf-prcsor-
vatlon. Under its operation a thief or
law-brakor of any description , or band
of thorn , cannot commit crime with im
punity in ono locality and then emi
grate'to another. Before getting the
necessary passport the antecedents of
every applicant are ascertained , and
the good are distinguished from the bad
and treated accordingly. Very natur
ally the law-breakers and agitators re
gard this as n hardship , but their fel
low citizens demand it as a safeguard
against the machinations of both. The
fee charged for the passport is made
necessary by the system , which is. ex
pensive. It is justly regarded as ono
of the sources of revenue.
"Truo , there is no compulsory educa
tion in Russia , and no adequate provi
sion is made for the education of the
masses ; but the facilities afforded
are fully as good as could bo ex
pected under the circumstances. Rus
sia is a now nation , comparatively
speaking. She is not up to the ago in
educational matters , but is constantly
btriving to that end ; and oven now ev
ery young man , bo ho rich or poor , can
boVdueatcd at the public oxponbo by
making application to the local repre
sentative ot the government , according
to custom. Free education is but a now
departure. It originated in the west ,
ana is moving , , eastward. Wo know
thut for many years after the American
war of the ro'bolljqn the educational sys
tem of the southern states was de
plorably defective and inadequate ;
and oven at this day some of
the states make but feeble attempts to
provide free education. Of course the
liberation of the .slaves was the reason.
Therefore , bpforto critizising the Rus
sian educational jjystein , it is but fair to
recall the fabt that she is dealing with
20,000,000 of recently liberated serfs.
"The uttorludicrousncssof Stepniak'a
attempt to pose tvs the spokesman of the
Russian people Cecils just a passing
comment. Biikoiiniu and Krapotldno ,
the originators of , anarchism and nihil
ismwhoso disciple ho is , wore banished
from the Swiss Republic , and Krapot-
kino was imprisoned in Franco for advo
cating the form of government they desire -
sire in Russia. Then the theories and
doctrines which Stopniak would promul
gate have boon condemned by the tri
bunals of both the republics hvbt named ,
as dangerous to society and the security
of life and property. "
What KccomcH or Locomotives.
Globe Democrat : Few people have
any idea of what becomes of thd
railroad locomotive after it has passco
its years of usefulness. Where
are they buried is often asked ,
and none but the railroad man can
answer. The great locomotive works
of the country nro busy day and night
trying to bupply the demands made
upon them , and yet they are not equal
to the task , so rapidly are railroads being -
ing conbtructod in every state in the
union. The time consumed in building
ono of these iron monsters has boon re
duced to a minimum , and some of the
works are ublo to turn out an engine
complete in every particular every
twenty-four hour * . They must pass
away rapidly , and what becomes of
them you nsk. A reporter of the Chicago
cage Times made a tour through the
scrap-iron yard of the Illinois Central
railroad , and all about , bleaching and
falling away from the influences of the
winds and storms of winter , wore the
bones and carcasses of those mighty
dead. This was the burying-groun'd
for the great locomotives of the country ,
the huge engines that have served out
their term of lifo.
They have a history , though , these
dead and rusty masses of old iron. Take
this old carcass of engine 192. There is
nothing loft now but the boilorand that
is falling apart with the action of rust
the mere skeleton of what was once a
mighty force. The wood work of the
engineer's cab has long ago been torn
out , the huge driving-wheel and the
tods and bars , the brass and stocl trim-
ings , the boll and smoke-stack , the
truck-whools , and the all that wont tc
make the. complete engine have been
taken away , oven to the sheathing of
the boiler itself , and thus dismantled
the remnant of old " 102" is loft to its
fato. It used to bo ono of the best in
u e , and the griz/.lod engineers of the
road cast fond glances over at the yard
where it lies as they rush past on a
newer and liner locomotive , recalling
how that battered ruin was years ago
the champion of the track and envied of
Hero is engine 179 , with a portion of
the cab still clinging to the boiler , but
that is all that remains to show its for
mer use. It is a recent ai rival in the
graveyard of the engines , yet the spar
rows find snug quarters in the nooks
and crannies of the pipes , and have
built their nests in the place where
only a short time ago the roaring fur
nace-lire and hissing steam gave lifo
and speed to the huge mass of metal. A
half-do/on other ruins. , in the process of
greater or less decay , lie about the
place , and the ground is strewn with
the ouds and ends of many more. It is
the Golgotha of the track , a sepulcher
whore time spreads the pall of oblivion
over man's handiworlc and makes it
An average of ono engine a month
finds its way to the scrap yard , but this
by no means implies thut all that go
there are entirely useless. The rail
road may have done with them , but if
the boiler can bo made serviceable with
a little patching , It is speedily bought
up by a contractor , or oven a junk
dealer who sees a chance for profit , and
the engine that has perhaps done duty
for twenty years is made useful for a
do/on more after the railroad has dis
carded it.
The lifo of a locomotive depends very
much on the workmanship put into its
construction and the class of work it
performs. A first-class passenger en
gineer should bo good for twenty-five
years , but few now turned out of the
shops reach that ago , because the neces
sity for speed in manufacture and the
demand for engines do not allow the
time and care to bo spent that formerly
wont to make up the locomotive. As a
matter of fact , the locomotives made
twenty years ago are still in service on
many a railroad , whore the engine pur
chased a do/.on years ago is laid up or
put into scrap. This is duo solely to the
superior workmanship and the material
used. Much depends , also , on the class
of work required of an engine. The pas
senger locomotive , which makes a run
of 200 miles per day , at an average
speed of twenty-live or thirty miles an
hour , does not sustain nearly so much
wear and tear to its boiler and ma
chinery as the engine that pulls a loaded
freight train at the comparatively slow
rate of fifteen miles an hour. The strain
is ten times as much on every part of
the freight engine as it is on the passen
ger engine. And this is what tells on
the lifo of the machine. The Illinois
Central has an engine in service built
for it in 18-58 , and some of the old car
casses in the graveyard can look back
over only half the number of years.
They were larger and finer to see and
had lots of modern improvements , but
the boiler was the vital point and gave
out before the little 68or felt the pangs
of ago.
The company sold an ontrino the other
day that had a bettor record oven than
this. Engine No. 2.1 was built in 1857 ,
and was used continuously up to n few
weeks ago , when it wont'to the grave
yard not to bo buried , however. The
company really had a sort of senti
mental affection for the faithful old
worker , and meant to keep it housed as
a relic of early days and have a little
placard announcing some of the inter
esting events in its career , but a specu
lative junkman happened along and
saw how ho could turn an honest penny
with No. " . ' } , Ho made an offer for it ,
which was accepted , and so ono day
the bravo angina pulled out from the
yard where she had sojourned for
thirty-one years and went away down
the familiar road for the last time , and
the old engineers and the helpers and
the workmen all raised their lints and
cheered her as she went along. What
the iunknmn did with her is not known ,
but it is more than likely No. 2i ; is again
hard at work at some coal or iron mine
pulling away with croaking and weary
joints at a heavy load. The engine is
on the books of the English railroad
commission as n remarkable instance of
longevity in locomotives. Some years
ago information was asked from Amer
ican railroads as to the lifo of the
American engine , the purpose being
for comparison with English-made en
gines , and It is on record that little 23
boat 'cm all.
In the early days of the road it was
customary to'name the locomotives in
stead of numbering thorn , and such
names as "John Rogers" and "Betsy"
wore the cognomens of famous engines.
Recollections of "Botsy" are still the
basis for many a yarn among the old
engineers. "Betsy" hauled the coach
in which Abraham Lincoln first paid a
visit to Chicago after hifi nomination as
president , and both "John Rogers" and
"Botsy" afterward did service for the
government of Lincoln by bringing up
from the south many a rebel to Camp
Douglas. Neither of the engines is
dead yet. The wheels and rods and
pistons may be gone , but the boilers are
still at work pumping up water at some
of the way stations on the road.
Her DcCuusclcHH Ilps.
San Francifco Argonaut : When the
last knot was tied and she was bound to
the chair by the gentle instance of some
half do/on silk cravats , she said : "I
hope that you have not so far misunder
stood the indulgence I have shown you
as to suppose that I will actually permit
you to kiss mo. With an eloquence of
which I had not , I confess , thought you
capable , you have depicted the happi
ness which I should confer upon you if
I allowed you to tie mo to this chair , bo
to disable mo that I could not prevent
your wresting from my defenseless lips
that kiss which I am not , alasl at lib
erty to give you. Penetrated by the
ardor of your prayers and impressed by
the subtlety of your reasoning , I con
sented to submit to this duress ; but you
must not forgot that it was upon the ex
pressed condition that you should con
tent yourself with seeing mo in this
kissiblo position , and should not attempt
to exorcise the power which I have
rashly given you. With your corporeal
eye you may contemplate my helplessness -
ness , but you may kiss mo with the lipd
of your imagination only. " "But "
said ho. "But I am very severe ?
Possibly. And yet I have
already tnado an enormous con
cession. I know how much you
love mo , and I appreciate the fervid
emotions which glow in your eyes at
this moment. You have never before
been enabled to look your heart into
mine. I am deprived of my fan , my
handkerchief of all the mtrenchments
behind which a woman retreats when
she can no longer sustain , unprotected ,
the bombardment of her dearest foo. Is
not this enough ? Your fancy is surely
not loss active than mine and I confess
to you that I can almost fool your kiss
my lips quiver , my heart is boating in
plunges rather than in pulsations. Am
I to understand that you experience
none of these delicious pains ? " "Oh !
More but " said ho. ' 'But you can
not prevail upon mo to enlarge the lati
tude I have already given you. I see
that my kindness was perhaps mistaken ,
and that you are not a little tantalized.
I sincerely commiserate your feelings.
But it has always boon my pleasure to
afford an exemplary exception to the
frailty of my contemporaries. If you
know what a compensation one finds in
the consciousness of _ rectitude if you
knew how sweet it is to me when I re
turn from my clandestine , but innocent ,
visits to the studios of my vassals to
realize that my lips are still my hus
band's , and his only ! " Her voice was
full of tears , tears of resignation. Her
face shone with the glorified sadness
and proud abnegation which ono often
BOOS on the brow of a young girl just
before it is concealed by the veil of re
ligious vocation. Ana yet so full is
the gamut of a woman's countenance
her lips still bora the traces of the im
agined kiss. For a moment ho rested
his nervous artist's hand upon an easel
at his side , struggling , perhaps , with
the remnant of that passion which those
saintly words had almost quelled. Then ,
taking his palette-knife , as if ho dared
not trust himself long enough to untlo
the knots , ho moved toward her oliair.
The knife still in his grasp , ho placed
his hand at her back , and , with the for- ,
uor of a fasting love , kissed her full on
the soft moist "Ah " said she
, lips. , , as
with reluctant tenderness ho loosed the
bonds to which ho owed so great a hap
piness , "how much my husband de
serves my gratitude , in that ho ha1 *
chosen a friend so worthy of my oa-
teem and of hist Nothing is more de
lightful than to count among ono'a
acquaintances a man at once so subtloi
and forcible as you a man who knows
how to spare a woman of propriety that
remorse which is the worst of agoniee.
Thanks to your ingenious brutality , ' !
have no share in the fault into which'
you have by a passion perhaps invinci
ble been led. I can now return to my
husband and present my lips to him for
a kiss with a conscience void of ro *
proach. "
