TARTFff MAKERS AT ODDS, KDISIOB BBOTEER8---PVBUSHBK8 CURRENT COMMENT. It takes very little tograltiy our friends, tbe eoerr.y.

Ail of wb.i.ja would be 1 proper thing for Senator Dcliiuater to do as quickly es possible. Aoain is the old ut ill net rated, that It is an til wind that blows nobody good, Frigbteoed by their reuent terrible experience, many LonUville people arc now hastening to insure their buildincs against tornadoes, and the company in that city which makes a practice of insuring against wreok by storms is aow doing a profltible business. The result of the postponed eleotiona in Rhode Isisnd is a disagreeable snrprisa to Republicans. The new Legislature is Demooratio, and will, of aoarse, eleot Mr. Davis Governor, and bis associates on the Demooratio tiotcet to the othet Bute offices. Tbe result does not affeot tbe United States Tenatorship, for Senator Aldrioh's term does not expire until 1883. H, O. Wabd, of Philadelphia, baa aet �aide a sum of money for tbe use of Keely, the alleged inventor, and has also made a will bequeathing to him 43,500 for the development of the alleged new force. Keely seems to have abandoned his motor altogether and ia working ,ip a new line of mysteries. It is aixteeo years ainoe bis motor was announced an about ready to revolutionize the woild, and Keely haa lived an the fat of the land ever since without producing anything but promises. The oonferenoa between Governor Beaver, General H istiugs and Robert H. Coleman has resulted in the determination of the Governor to. direct the holding of tola year's encampment ot the National Guard of this State at Mount Gretna. Tbe eamp ground has already been enlarged and the parade ground will be. A branch raTfroad has beeu raufrvm the main line of the railroad to the rifle range. Other improvements are also contemplated. Tbe time fixed for the encampment will be tbe week between July 19th and the 26tb. A body of tbe regular army will also rendezvous here at tbe same time, making Mount Gretna tbe most attractive plane in the Bute daring that period. Courteous to Every One. Prom tbe LewlBton Journal.

Washington, April 15.- A protest aigned by sixteen Republican Hepresen-tatives baa been presented to the members of tbe majority of the Committee on Ways and Meana against the sugar and wool sohedalaa of tbe Tariff Bill as published. These Representatives nrge upon tbe committee that in ibeir opinion a reduction of twenty five per cent, in the duty ou sugar and an increase of duty on low grade of carpet wools ia as great a change as should be made. The manufactures of ingrain carpets say that tbe change 1n duty proposed in the acbednle as published will increase tbe price of their products from fifty to uiuety-nine cents a yard and practically wipe out their business, silencing four thousand looms and enforoing idleness upon thirty tbonsand workmen. Tbe signers of tbe protest, it is understood, are from all sections of the country and while nothing of the kind ia contained in the documents an understanding exists among tbem that, in its present shape tbey will not vote for the bill in tbe Committee of the Whole Bouse. Another Repablioan member, Coleman, of Louisiana, says be goes further than the* signers of tbe protest, and eulesa further advised by his constituents he will not vote for any reduction on BUgar. The question, he saya, came np in tbe campaign and ha was elected upon his assurance that he would not vote to disturb the sugar dnty. The Republican members of tho Ways and Meana Committee were in session about two hours this afternoon. The bounty proposition as applied to sugar was presented definitely by tbe Bugar manufacturers. Tbey will accept tbe bounty in plane of the present duty if they can be assured that it will be continned for fifteen years. The protest of the sixteen Republican members of tbe Bouae against the large increase of the duty on carpet wools ia also having soma effcot ou tbe committee. Another meeting will bo held to-morrow morning. TBE DEAD STATESMAN. (The fallowing lines weremysterlously piaeed on onr table by a young Mies in her teena.

The Ecwiinj Sun's Woman:Abuut-Town describes it as follows: "You must first have a hoop made of some polished wood about as big as a barrel. Tben you must get each of your girl friends to give you a piece of ber favorite colored ^ribbon with hei initials worked thereon. These bits of ribbon you wind round the hoop until the wood is entirely covered. Then you have tbe hoop suspended horizontally over your dressing table or yonr reading chair, and now tbe real work in connection with tbe momory hoop beginB. Each one of your men friends must be called upon to eon-tribute an old-fashioned copper two-cent piece. It may put him to a deal of trouble, but a man won't mind a little trouble, surely, if it is reasonably oerUin to result in his being perpetuated within the magic circle of the memory hoop. So, when ho has secured the copper two-cent pieoe, he must have bis enitials engraved on one side, with the date and line of poetry on tbe other. Then the polished disk is suspended from the hoop by a bit of ribbon of the color of the dress you happen to have on when the coppor is given to you." Should any of the coins tarnish it is said:to indicate that the man who presented it is in trouble and tbe owner of tbe hoop iB to aeud him a letter of ooudoleuoe or sympathy. _ Bow to Kill a Xoom.
