As it requires a^polictunan to every boy, however, tbo chances are against tbo success of the measure. The Uouee Committee on Territories voted to recommend that tbe Uoubo sen i a committee of seven to New Mexico an I Arizona fo inquire into the fitness of tho* 3 Territories for admission of States, and ri -port at tbe nest sDBBion of Congress.

It would seem so when an audience of only 200 gathers to witness a game between two National League clubs. A. year or two ago thou* ands would have been in attendance oc suob a game.

B\ law, Congressmen cannot draw pay for services when they are absent from their duties in the House. If tbia law was ouforoed, as it should be, we would bear no further complaints of there being no quorum in tbat body from day to day. Why is it thai this most, excellent law is not invoked in tbe interests of the public business, which for montna has been retarded through absenteeism? TriE Philadelphia Times, seized with the spirit of. prophecy, indulges iu an enthusiastic- editorial in which it declares that if the election vrere to be hold to-day Dela-mater would be defeated by 50,000. It goes over the State reducing Republican majorities and magnifying the Democratic vote, until it has aohieved a great victory for its Democratic friends-oo paper. But we judge that tbe lime* is a false prophet. The story of 3laud 3IuUer in act ual life, with the* romantic turn that so many people have wished it might have, is reported f/om a German village. The local judge married his Maud and took ber from her bay-field to his luxurious home. He was seveuty and she wsb eighteen, She bad never b.en in a town before and naturally did not l:nov how io act in citified ways, while her beauty attracted many admirers. Within ii short time the Judge got insanely jealoos and made bia young wife miserable with his restrictions and reproaches.

Krom the Scientific Anieriran. While exploring in search uf ferns deepn�d ibiokly wooded ravine with U I ticcs abovo on either side and underbiusn almost entirely shutting out the light of tbo sun, aud rendering the place cold and damp, yet almost stilling for want of a circulation cf air, I suddeuly came upon a common blaoksnake about four feet in length, sticking fast to the side of a tree. My first impulse was to atop short and see all I could before- he ftbould take fright and drop, but after watching him until tired I btgan to try to disturb bim thinking ho would let go and drop, as hid head was but six feet above the grouuO.. This he did not intend to do; it was no^ his style of doing business, as I afterward became convinced. Nor would he move until all the sticks and stones at band bad been thrown at him; but one, however, touched him about the middle, oansing him to loosen from tbe tree about one foot of his body, which be carefully replaced. Tbe tree, 1 should state, was a cottonwood about fifteen inches In diameter, with the ordinary rough bark common to this tree, very perpendicular aud straight, and with a distance of about thirty-five feet to the first limb. Failing to hit him further, I next cut tho lougoBt stick near me (about ten feet), and get tins* ft \itt\o ciosBr by climbing upon a fallen tree top, I tried to touch him, but the limbs settling down with my weight, put me again out of reach, I climbed the steep hillside, and came down directly in front and within six feet of him, where I staod for some time taking a more aeourato survey. 1 found him in almost a perpedioular position, but with very short and abrupt curves in a number of places. Tbe straight places in his body were fitting very closely in the conjugations in the j bark for six or eight inches at a stretch, and taking advantage of every offset in these conjugations, both to the right and left, yet with no intention whatever, to encircle the tree, which could have been easily done by a snake of his si/.e. After a long examination and study of these traits I at last resolved to make him do something, so I touched bim gently with my stick, when he began moving bis entiro length, first turning his head downward. He carried his head aud some three or four inches of his neck erect, as if crawling on the ground, and picked out a route down the tree, not more than six inches from where the rest of his body was going up. Uo lost no advantage be bad already possession of, and taking things very deliberately he thus gained the ground, not moving the length of bim sell in less than one minute. I tbus bad before, me the very rare spectacle of a snake climbing both up and down a tree at the same time. I have no doubt but that he could have gone to the very top of the tree just ob woll as six feet, and have come down as well had be so desired. I do not think his object was to sun himself nor to catch birdu, as the dead tree tops close by offered a bet'er petition for cither, hut *o get in a position to catch Hies, io which the place abounded, probably attracted by tbo coolness of the glen mi a very hot July day.

Tho Speaker of (he Huns a Exjirtwftes BIh ^ratification nt tfie E�prepi*lao or the People In Support of EUt"�vlf aad Associates-It Shows That tbe Strength of the Jiutlon Is the Sir* rigtti of the people. iiusTON, Sept. ii.-Speaker Reed, who is on his way to Maine to participate in the political campaign in that State, ad dressed a large audience to-night at Fanui I Hall. It waB a very enthusiastic gathering, and Mr. Reed was given a rouaing welcome. He expressed gratification With the reception given him, saying it was a great satisfaction to any man to know that the people of the United States were behind his associates and him. Any amount of individual courage may be greatly strengthened by tbe addition of the courage of other people.' Tbe strength of the nation ib the strength of its united people. What terrifies wrong-doers is the union of good men. Continuing he said: All progress id over the ruins of old institutions. Men are en trenched behind the use and want of ttiBir lives, and being so entrenched fight desperately against any one who carries the breast works, and if you look at some of tho newspaper headlines you will see what the feeling of some gentlemen were whose entrenchments were being carried. It is amazing to notice tho history of the Hoo.se of Representatives and of Congress, to see how in detail it carried out the principle that when things are to be done the Republican party does them. the democratic btbl'^gle. The greaf struggle which has been made by the Democratic House for years has been not to be economical in the expenditures of the Government, but to out down the sum total of the appropriations. They have been striving in every way to pile up a surplus, not merely by taxation but by parsimony in their action in the expenditures of money. So long aa they could point to tie clogging of business which results from the storing of money in the Treasury they seemed to be happy, but now they are busily engaged in showing that the snrplus has disappeared. They are unable to be contented either with a surplus or without one. There is no doubt but what tho expenditures of the Government are are about to approach its recoipts, hot extravagance. Any man would make a mistake if he believed that it 'was in any way the result of extravagance or carelessness with the public money that a dollar has been appropriated by ehber House which does not carry upon it the stamp of tbe necessities of the Government, and nobody who does not carefully consider this matter aan ever realize tho righteous action of tho Rspnblioan party iu both nouse and Senate, and how much it has cost them to be economical in a true aud proper sense. There has been advertisement broadcast of this surplus, and every human need and want has been det together to try to get money out of the treasury for other than publij purposes, but not ono of thetlo schemes has been successful. All the expenditures have been legitimate, just, and 1 proper. Wo shall expend nearly our in-oome. We shall also reduce taxation to tho cxteDt of $30,000,000- A Hutlly Sotted Negro.
