EVENING EXPRESS KINSLOE BKOTHKKS---PUIUJSHKKS CURRENT COMMENT. The feat of Columbus will be nothing when the mercury discovert JMsro this winter. Pohtugai. has a cabioet crisis. Th� lit tie kingdom will soon need a chest pro tector. It doesn't appear that the Reed iu the congressional -wilderness has been shaken very much by the wind of democratic oratory. Geokge W. OiULDa owns over a thous and clocks aud he keeps tbem going all the while. He is bound to be up to the times. The contest iu the national House of Representatives will establish a precedent by which filibustering in the future will be a lost art. New York ought to have the World's Fair and the chances still are that she will get it, but if she does it will be through good luck more than good management. With Wallace capturing the anti-Cleveland Democrats, and Pattison the Cleveland faction, Chauncey Black is foroed to give a realistic imitation of "Nobody's Child." An exchange suggests that Mr. Cleveland would be a good man to make jokes for minstrel shows. It is another illustration of tbe lines, "To what base uses do we come at last!" Strawberries have arrived, but ob, such berries. They no more resemble the taste of the home raised fruit, than kissing a clothing store dummy resembles smacking the lips of the pretty store girl. Superintendent of Census Porter says that sex is not to be considered in tbe selection of enumerators. The trouble will oome when a woman canvasser asks her next-door neighbor ber age.

In the recent storm in the California foothills Angel Camp bad a fall of ten inches, while Hell's Delight struggled beneath a fleece of six inches. SECRETARY TRACY BETTER The Grief Stricken Man Bemoved to the Executive Mansion. LOOKING ON HIS BELOVED DEAD The financial journals are very earnestly assuring the country that money is not scarce. 'Ibis maybe correct as s state roent of fact, but must people are disaatis fled with the distribution of it. Tbat is where the weak point in the assertion lies. The London Timet has paid Parnell &25, 000 as damages for tbe libel on which he brought suit against that paper. But this is a very small part of what tbe Timet has lost directly and indirectly as a result of making itself tbe organ of forgers, spies and blackmailers. Charles Emory Smith of the Philadelphia Press will be offered the Russian Mission, If he is rich enough he can afford to go-if not, he bad better give it the go by. This is about tbe way it stands: Salarji $17,500,. House rent, servants and equipage, $30,000. Incidental expenses, $20,-000. How do you like these figures, Charles Emory! They are correct. If you doubt it ask ex-Governor Curtin. The South is producing more cotton than when she had millions of slaves at her command, and, astonishing aB it may be to most people who have not kept pace with ber progress, from producing less tbem one-eighth of tbe country's iron nine years ago, to-day she is producing about one-fourth of all the iron made in tbe United States. Cotton, and she produces now nearly tbree-fourtbB of the world's supply, is still her great staple.
