So says tho above paper, (remarks the Germania.) That the United States will prohibit the European imports is exaggerated, but in truth the foregoing article contains much truth, and for we Americans much to rejoice over. Then when our rivals in trade are dissatisfied with our tariff bill, it is the best proof that we have very good grounds to rejoice.

is puerile and childish talk. Let us coniine ourselves to tho democratic papers. Calamity in the shape of rising prices is heralded in the editorial columns, while the advertisements tell of good bargains and prices as low or lower than those which have prevailed in the t ost. Here are a few samples, all taken from democratic papers:

Nothing could bo more nattering to a candidate for congress than the splendid meetings with which Mr. Gear is being greeted throughout the district, i’ublic halls are filled to overflowing aud will not hold the crowds that come out to hear did Business and pledge to him their influence and their votes. Mr. Gear’s meeting in this city last Monday night was tile largest political meeting he ever addressed in Henry county. Saunders’ opera house was packed early and jscores w ,e unable to get admission injto the hall Mr. Gear spoke for an houuand a half with the added experience and strength of his active work in congress for the la*:, four years.
Of all the Inssy men and of the many hard working congressmen no one of them will say that they have done mon-work than Mr. Gear. Lie is pre-eminently the working congressman and workingman’s congressman, iii' believes an official's duty is to work and not to loll around in cushioned M-ats enjoying alone tho distinction of office and drawing its salary. In two terms he lias mastered every detail of congressional duty and during ii is first term his alii lily and industry was so clearly made manifest that he was placed upon the most important committee of the house, practically representing thirteen states in the heart of the Mississippi valley on the great political committee of ways and means. Other Iowa congressmen are his seniors in service at Washington, but he surpassed them and went to the front and was given the laboring oar. How well lie has done his work the roll calls of congress abundantly testify. Gear’s name is always on the roll call. The sergeant-at-arms had no occasion to hunt) up Mr. Gear and bring him into the halls of congress.
While performing his arduous duties in committee and on the floor of the house he ha* also found time to consider the personal sol it Rations of his constituent', to personally answer all private letters and do more private work for the people of his district than any other con-gr ssnien did for the people of their district. The question now is, shall he be exchanged fur John J. Seerley in the halls of congress? As a business proposition it is ridiculous. Mr. Seerley is by no mean' the strongest candidate whit ii the democrats could have nominated in the district. There are a dozen democrats by far His superior. He was nominated two year: ago with no hope
or prospect among well informed democrats that he would beat Mr.
Gear. Ile i* p rrnitK d to make the race again with the leading men of bi* own party anticipating the >ame results as two years ago. The rank and file of the democratic party may have some hope of electing Mr. Seerley, the leaders have none. The best men of the democratic partv in the district are not anxious to run against John ii Gear. Mr. Seerley thinks it' distinction enough to run against him and gel beat. It U a contest in which democrats have no heart and small pride in their candidate. Republicans have a firm faith that they will elect Mr. Gear, aud an established pride in his work, hi' influence and standing in the hall' of congress.
Mr. Gear’s health was never better; he Has a withy, wearing, physical fibre that stands nj) under an immense burden of work. No one ever hears of John ll. Gear being sick. In * ach succeeding campaign lie turns up a hustler by day and by night. His appointments are always lilied. It has been the rule of his life to meet all his engagements. There will be, a loss of a vote to him here and there because he could not appoint three or four good men to the same office. Every vote he will thus lose will be because he did not do a thing which no j human power is capable of doing. One postmaster is all a community is permitted to have, and if Mr. Gear didn’t appoint three or four in tacit locality it is no fault of his. That his appointments are not creditable no one can fairly claim. He has made his appointments and made them well and that is a!! the party can ask of him.
Voters of Henry county, will you exchange a plodding, practical experienced business man and legislator for a young lawyer with very ordinary ability, no experience and no influence at Washington to represent you in congress? You will answer this question next Tuesday at the ballot box. and we believe you will say "No” with unmistakeable emphasis.

The appearance of this volume will be hailed with genuine pleasure by many thousands cf people in this and in other lands across the seas who have known Bishop Simpson and enjoyed the matchless eloquence of his uttered thought. To have even heard him once was to remember him gratefully—to have heard him often was surely a privilege that few could undervalue. We write of him in the genera! sense—that of the great public whose acquaintance v/ith the man was mainly as his auditors, when opportunity offered. Such occasions came all too seldom for us of the west and th*- few addresses delivered by the? bishop in this section are: treasured memories. Ho was truly a matt among men, wielding a power over the heart> and i minds of others that rarely falls within the compass of even the most lavishly endowed orator. Bishop Simpson's power was not of the tongue, merely; the impress of hts royal soul permeated his words and ever made its happy influence felt. He was a zealous hunter of other souls that he might deliver them as offerings to the Master. And so earnest was he in carrying forward his great mission that th*- magnetism of his personality was almost irresistible. The baro announcement that he was to speak attracted
‘p. ana wo
men of every degree in life to hear his voice and look upon one whose name was so honored in all christian lands. To Methodists, especially, he wa" a veritable inspiration and his name a household token which induced reflection and profound admiration of the great apostle of their faith. To them therefore this faithful and comprehensive record of his life, from the eventful day, June 21, 1811, when the future preacher first saw the light in Cadiz, Ohio, through the ^niggles of his childhood and youth, battling with adverse circumstances and personal diffidence, up to the time of hi* early ministry and later on, through his memorable ( areel- as teacher, professor and college president, to his election to the episcopate. his intimacy with Uresi d**nt Lincoln and the great emancipator's friendship for aud confidence iii the bishop, whom it Is well known he frequently consulted on national affair." during the darker hours of the war, and down through the splendid years of his autumn life to the harvest of his hope and joy, when on the morning of June IS, 1*84, he laid aside the cross and took up tho crown. His wa* "atypical American life,” says his biographer, "beginning under lowly conditions and ending iu honor.” And in the handsome, well printed volume of 512 pages before us, that biographer has earned the thanks of a great church for the fidelity and loving zeal manifested in garnering every available fact of interest in Undead bishop's history. Mr. L. IL Dalhoff, of Burlington has th** general agency for the book and is confident of a large sale. He is placing agents in the field to sell ii by subscription.

Mr. Alden is to be congratulated upon the fact that he ha* succeeded in perfecting financial arrangements that enable him to resume.the control of his important work, which last spring was transferee! to the largo publishing house of Garretson, Cox A Co., of New Y'ork, iii order to secure the then necessary alii-anceof their greater capital and facilities, the enterprise having out-grown the limits originally proposed for it. Though conducted in a quiet manner, the cyclopedia is one of the great literary undertakings of the time. Something of it" magnitude may be seen by the fact that the closing topic of the present volume is inontem. Sixteen’ more volumes will b* required to complete the alphabet, all of which are promised within the year I SD I.
In the present volume, five states are treated: Michigan L given over IO pages; Minnesota, about 13 pages; Mississippi about fi pages;Missouri,12 pages; andMon-lana. IO pages. Mexico is also treated at lenirth. A mon it the citie" described are Memphis, Tennessee, and the historic Memphis of Egypt; Meriden. Mexico, Milan, Milwaukee, Minneapolis and Mobile. There are biographic* of Mendelssohn and Meyerbeer, celebrated musicians: Michel Angelo,artist; John Stewart Mill, political economist and philosopher; Hugh Mill, Christian geologist: Milinan, tin* historian; Milton, the poet:
(). M. Mi to bel and Maria Mitche), astronomers; Moliere, French poet and dramatist; Mommsen, the historian: James Monroe, president of the United States: and Montefiore, tile renowned Jewish philanthropist. Among the important topics in other lines are Meteorology. 1 Methodist Episcopal Church, Miasma, Michigan University, Microscope, Mind, Mining, Miracle, Missions, Mohammedanism, and Money. There are, of course, multitudes of others of perhaps equal interest. The matter is well brought down to date, and the illustrations are numerous and helpful. Paper, printing and binding are good and the prices, with easy installment terms, place it within easy reach.
“A Real Robinson CRUSOE,” the story of the strange yet true experiences of castaways on a Pacific island. Edited from the survivor's own narrative by J. A. Wilkinson. Illustrated. Boston; IU Lothrop Company. Cloth, $1.25.
The truth of this recital of adventure and peculiar experience on a remote island of the South Pacific ocean is vouched for by the editor of the narrative and, accepting hi* guarantee, the old adage that “truth is stranger than fiction is forcibly illustrated by the contents of the volume. Although somewhat prosy in parts, no romance of the imagination could be mon* interesting, despite the fact that the story is free from the elements of tile impossible, so conspicuous in the realms of the fictitious. The personages of "A Ileal Robinson Crusoe” were six in number, four men and two women. Five were aristocratic snobs and do-nothings, while the hero had brains, ingenuity, endurance and aptitude. What he accomplished with the aid of an axe and a determination to make the best of things furnishes a tine exposition of the value of the gospel of work.
“On the War-path,” by Major J. O. Kerbey. U. S. consul at Para, Brazil, S. A.: author of “The Boy Spy.” Chicago: Donohue, Hon-
neberrv A' Co. Cloth, $1.
The author aptly styles bis later work "a journey over tho historic grounds of tho late civil war.” It is, in fact, a compilation of personal reminiscences both as a soldier and as a Washington correspondent for the press. In both fields there were many memories to be gathered and stored away, and the major has harvested not a few of varying shades of feeling. Some are pleasant—others the reverse. And many of the circumstances narrated find herein their first presentation to the world in type. It is a book that will find friends and enemies, but withal one that will be studied with in-! terest for the insight it gives to the j realm "behind the scenes.” Each reader I will be his own best critic.
