clothed and fed people on Earth and who do not realize they Are paying the government a Sou under Cleveland Reform the salaries of 350 officials have been increased at an annual Cost of while the number of salaries that were so exorbitant under previous administrations that have been reduced is and the annual Sav ing to the government by 0 the average appropriations under Arthur for the postal service were less than while for it is and we have the poorest service for 20 in the Campaign of 84 we heard repeatedly that the removal of the army of unnecessary and overpaid officials justified the

Large order of Wil larger than he was willing to the adaptability of the soil and Wilsons expert skill in the propagation of vines from cuttings enable him to rival All and produce bet Ter besides he has a system of his own for what is termed which enables him not Only to propagate from slips most Success but by it he is Able to propagate such varieties of which other nurserymen have to do by which is ten times As so difficult is it to propagate Moores Early that vines of this variety Are Worth from four to six times As much As Concord and some other and yet Wilson propagates the Moores
