PKICE-TWO CENT! EVENING EXPRESS KINSIAIK"IflSOTIIKKS---I'uhj.ISIUJKS CURRENT COMMENT. Calvin S. TIkici-; had the grip-ou tho Democratic party of Ohio. That hope winch springs eternal iu the human breast is not afiusher in the bosoms of the? ico men. A Tovsr. lady aaks how to^et into hoei-ety. Ou the same prinoiplo that you would get into jail. Do something. Tiik sudden death of Walker Blaine at the threshold of his career will be n great grief to his parents and friends and will esoite the general sympathy of the public. If Kkw Youk should secure the World's Fair, a most fitting placo to have it would be at Riverside Park, whore visitors could see the monument they erected to Graut, without estra charge. We do not beleave that out of the millions of colored people in this country a single thousand have any desire to emi-grato to Africa. All discussion of such an expedient for settling the race problem is a waste of time. The black man is here to stay; he is a far better Americau than thousands of his fellow eftizens who have white skins. Africa is a foreign country to bim and lie cannot be persuaded or forced to expatriate himself. Whatever time is taken up in Congress in the discussion of Senator Morgan's absurd bill will be simply thrown away. Instead of devising schemes to get rid of tho negro, the pure statesman will endeavor to secure him his political rights as an American citizen and help him to educate his children. Til eke seems to be surprise iu some quarters that Glaus Spreckles' great sugar refinery will not be devoted to making sugar from beets. It was uever intended as such. It was built as a sugar rifmcry and not as a f'ltu.ry. The latter is iutend-ed to make sugar from the raw material such as cane and beets, whilo the refinery is intended to make refined sugars from the coarser and darker grades, There is a very wide differeuce between these two kinds of sutjar manipulations. Mr. Spreck-Ies ronkl vn\ m:-kc ;-*i^;:r jn giear establishment if ho w�mid; tins machinery i> not adapted to that purpose. Thuc are no beets and no cane available for t lie purpofco even if the machinery was adapted to the purpose. What ihe uveu pUivt was cvf-ett:d for was to receive common sugars from the East and West Indies and From every other quarter where it is rarul-j and convert it into the beautiful refined article found in our markets. Tuere are hints that a revolution is about to come in agriculture through the discovery that the free nitrogen of the atmosphere is absorbed aud " fixed" by the soil itaeU under suitable conditions. Says the West Chester Local ycics: "Plants need phosphoric acid, potiibh and nitrogen. The first two are in reach, hut the third has been supposed to be elusive. It has been the general teaching that the nitrogen of the atmosphere is "liied" and mado available as a fertilizer 'by the co-operation of mineral matter and of live organisms in the soil.1 The fact explains, it is said, why it is '(1) that spade husbandry is much more productive than plowing; ('2) that land can be enriched by simply plowing under its own produor, and CJ) that sum mer fallowing, with frequent stirring, actually ourichesthe soil.' Pulverization of the soil increases, it seems, its capacity to absorb nitrogen. The method of centrifugal tillage now being developed in the "West supplies, it is claimed, an ideal modus operandi for tho new fertilization. It pulverizes the soil and a,-rates it iu tho manipulation, and then confines a mass of air in its midst for the slower process of absorbtion and digestion by earth and plants," PERSONAL I'KSC; LINOS.

"Wo accept the micvobic origin of its u.iture, but it has not yet been proven, says Professor J. M. Ua Costa, ii: a paper on tho grip, which will appear in the Judical Jars of to-day. The general ex citcment over the ravages of tho grip has probably reached nearly its climax in the death of Walker Blaine, and tho words of every authority ou tho disoase are sought for with increasing interest. At such a tune the paper from Dr. Da Costa will attract, the wildest attention. HK ACCEPTS A MICHOTUC TIIEOTIY. Dr. Da Costa's article says very little about any theory of tho cause and spread of the disease. lie writes: The diseiiKO is epidemic, and I thinlr, myseif that il is feebly contagions.

Thu doctor made these general observations: Iu the majority of instances the fever is moderate aud lasts about three or four days. The fever is at its height in from twenty-four to thirty-six hours; then it slowly subsides, and the temperature may go below normal. In one case it paired to UC aud there was profuse sweating, something like a crisis talcing place. During the period of highest temperature, lasting thirty-six or possibly fotty-eight hours, there is only the ordi-naiy varhiLion of about cne degree between the morning and evening temperatures. There is really a slight continued fever and not a fever with remissions and exacerbat ions as in malarial fever. As a rule, ihe temperature docs not exceed 103"; but, by way of variety, 1 have iu this epidemic encountered a few cases in which the temperature at tho outset unexpected y shot up to 105 and tho next day went down to about lUu , and then the o iso rati the ordinary course, tei minuting in rccovesy. In two of these cases bloody sputum or pure blood was at first expectorated. A I.ADV SWi)i;i; AT TIIK JMM'l'ull. One oi the most singular features of tho present epidemic is the prevalence of tho nervous symptoms. Theao aro shown by the violent headache, tho severe pain all over the body, the pain hi the spine traveling downward, and also by what 1 havo seen iu quite a number of cases, hypenes-thesia, or general sensitiveness of tho surface. This is something moro than what mi^ht be alinhuted to tho effort of coughing. Then, too, in some of the casea there 1 is deiirum, not. tn'mply the deliium of in | anition, as occurted iu one of tho eases, but a delirium with violent headache, this , delirium sometimes taking strange forms. In one c ise, that of a most retiued lady, ! who when well would hardly recognize an oath, whiMi shy became delirious from an attach of i;: Ihier./.i swore at her doctor { every timo he entered thu room. 1 have been told of instances in which patients: have lost their minds from the violence of, t' e headache aimln.

The Baldle'n Were There. Duncan Clark's lady minstrels, that appear In tho Opera llouso to-night, were in DuBois Thursday, aud the following notice is taken from tho Daily Courier of that placo iu reference to the performance: "Central Opera House does not often corral a larger gathering than that which hold seats for Duncan Clark's lady minstrels last evening. Ba'.d wigs were conspicuous iu their accustomed quarter of tho house and tho entire stock of faleo faces of the u having been bought up they were numerous iu tho audience. A lot of good follows who wanted to see the girls would only go in disauise. There was "Dad" Fuller, Allison Roacoe and a few more who never allow tho cost of a run.sk to stai .1 between them and a little fun, and numerous mem hers of tho various lodges steered around the traditional goat and into the parquet. "Duncan Clark's lady minstrels gave a very good entertainment in many respects. The best talent displayed was by tho male members of the company; impersonators and contortionists. Tho daucing was good all around and the "living statuary" was a good feature. So far as costumes were concerned they were similar to those of variety entertainments, aud about as well calculated to outliuo good forms as tho average circus rider's or many seen in the once popular opera of Pinafore."

Dun & Company's weekly review of trade will say: Important improvement iu bus mess is noted wherever the recent change to colder weather has been feU. Tho weekly output of pig iron January 1st, was 174,038 tons, against lftf>(lol December 1st, aud 15-1.30S a year ago. This implies a slight increase iu the production last year over tho previous estimates. The surprising inoreaae in the output has led many to wonder in what way the enormous quan tity now made ciu be consumed, and in qtiiries indicate that there is iu tho aggregate somo accumulation of stocks. It also appears that tho market for bar iron is somewhat unsettled, with a tendency toward concessions, and plate Iron Is less firm. Structural and sheet irons and nails aro steady, but some uneasiness is noticed in the market for Btcel rails. Unless the consumption of the finished products is ?ot only sustained but expanded, and the output of pig iron can hardly continue at the present rate. The stagnation in anthracite coal is aggravated, but although the trade is narrow and 20,000 minors are reported idle, the weekly output from other roioeB exceeds the output of all the mines a year ago by G0,000 tons. Prices are active. The business failures occurring throughout the country during the last seven days, number for the United States 305, and for Canada, 31. For the corresponding week of last year the figures were 2SA tn tho United States and 4G in Canada. LATE WASHINGTON NEWS. Windom's Call Eesponded to by the National Bank?.

Tho delinquents are located in distant parts of the country and it is believed will be beard from in a few days, so that it Is not at all likely tbat the department will be called upon in any ease to force compliance with its demands. The total amount of bonds surrendered to date in liquidation of deposits is 47,078,500, being more than twice the amount required by a strict compliance with the call. The number of banks which will be discontinued as depositories is 85, and of these 30 have already snrrendered their entire deposits and gone out of the system. Of the 48 to be continued as depositories, 10 hare reduced their holdings to the limit fixed by the department, and 33 bare made a partial reduction, nearly all, however, in excess of the 10 per cent. call.

The water is radidiy spreading over the bottom lands, and those who have not already been driven from their homes by the rising waters are removing their families and stock. A great amount of corn has been destroyed, and farmers having grain in danger of being washed away are at work with laborers placing it above the high water mark of 1884. The prospects now are tbat the water will reach a much greater height than at any time ainoe the flood of that year. With the rapidly rising river at this place and advices of an addl tional rise of the Upper Ohio and side streams, the situation is anything but encouraging. The officers of the steamer Bluewing from Calbouo, which arrived here last night, teported the river riBing at the rate of two inches an hour.

He waa ably assisted in dl sipating bis money by a woman and h own lack of brains. When he had spent all tbe women left him, he sold claims,ai then poisoned himself. Commenting upc this stage of things, tbe remarks of a coi temporary are very suitably put: Mi placed wealth is one of the greatest ourst in the world, as its possession by a goo and wise man is an nndonbted blessing Mo one can blame a rich farmer for tyln up the inheritances be leaves to a fast so so tbat he cannot beggar himself b squandering it.
