As a Reading boy has died of jellow fever, suppos<d to have been caught from pet alligators from Fh'iida, the importation of the siuriaos will be more limited in the future. If it is admitted that speak-casios .*?our-isb just as well under prohibition as under high license, bow can their existenoe in a high license cjoimunlty be an argument for propibition. Easter comes ctrly this year, and it is to be hoped simebxly will notify the weather cleik in time to have bim get the wealh'.~ settlwi fair before it arrives. The Easter bonnets must have a show.

Tbs New York papers are severe on Mayor Grant, who is likely to be impeach-ed and alno tried on criminal chargo.v. Even those which supported him and helped to elect bim to the Mayoralty have nothing for bim hut abuse. At the Republican primary electioos in Tioga county, held March 24:b, Ex-.4udi-tor General J.

If Tirga insists upon having the nomination Mr. Niles will be a bard man to defeat aud if nominated will carry the district by a Urge majority. That there are many public institutlona in this and other States where wrongs are praoticed on the inmates is undoubtedly true. But hcciusc there are such, is no evideuce that all are to be ranked in this category. There is no just cause for assailing institutions established for generations and controlled by the best of men, simply because discharged employes have grievances. It is sometimes well lo go slow in tbeee coademoatinos. TEE DOK kl ffiSfilEGTOE The Bepublicao Committee Spend the En* tire Day in Hearing Eepresenlativcs. Ult. UICKV roRKC.iST.

WASniNGTO.v, March 20.—Taking ad vantage of the opportunity afforded by the debate in the House, the Uepublicao members of tho Ways and Means committee spent the entire day in coosultation aud bearing the representations touchiog the Tariff bill. Tho discussion touched upon acids, oils, borax, copper aud nickle, hides and a Urge number of other subjeoie. A delegation of brewers and malsters from Oswego objected to the increased duty on Canadian barley. A New York city delegation lodged an earnest protest against tho proposed loci'ease of duty on doe linen from 35 cent. to 50 per cent, and a number of repreeontative glovers urged the committee to stick to the provisions of the present law aa it affected gloves, but to ald some safeguards sgainst uudervalu-alloo. The priocipal aolioo of the day was a reconsideration of the decision to tax bides, and tb( J have been restored to the free l;st. The duty OD jato bagging was alt-o increaaed. TBS OHIO RIVER FLGOU. No Further Kite Ezpccteri aud the Diioger AlwQt Over. Cincinnati, March 20 —Another bright clear day with a brisk cool wind gives an air of unusual eheerfulluess to everybody to whom high water iu tho Ohio river could bring comfort or disaster. Besides that the river has roached its maximum, 59 feet 2 tucbes, aud after reinaioiag at that height for several hours bas begun to dccHuo. It bas fallen two inches at IO o’clock this morning. All reports from above show that no further rise is possible without auoiher rain, which docs nut srcm at hand, tine foot more of rise would have caused more than IOO r^r cent. more incuuvenieocc, for it would have iovadcd so many first floors of the buihhogs. The sggreg.ate of loss by the ll )od is much less than usual, because of the esBocs given in 1883 and I"**! by the great floods of those years. People have arranged to leave properly not so ex-H>sed. Railroads have raised their grades, and there is a general condition of readl ness to keep out of the way of tho water. Still many manufacturers and cstab-I'shmeots in Mill Cleek valley and along the river front arc compelled to stop for a few days, aud these will have their ma chinery more or less damaged by water, but there are no bouses swept away and OO lives in peril. The wind bas sent waves against the levees at Lawrencebuig and caused one or two breaks there, but the city is still proticted from any serinus iuuiKlatioti. With the present the water will rapidly fall, and things will go on as before lo a few dsys. A RuroiMa Wreck.

It was notioed that her class of boys seemed to be able to solve ail the problems. When a question wsn asked every boy's hand in the class was raised. The priuoipal of the school was putting the questioDS, and the teacher would call OO a pupil to make the answer. Although more than a score of questions were asked, in no iostaoce waa an improper answer given. The principal was so plsssed at the ro-solt that he made special meotioo of Miss Dash's proficiency as a teacher lo each of the class rooms that be visited. Probably envy was caused by the fact that in no other class room did the pupiU seem to be ss well up lo their studies. One of the teachers, whose pnplls did not aoqnit bemselves very creditably, made an Investigation, and by a ladiolooa ase of candy succeeded in gaining the confidence of one of the boys nnder Miss Dash’s care. “Now, Johnny,” said she, “how is It that ail you boys know the answers f* “We don’t all know,” said Johnny, mooching a caramel. “Bat yon all pot up your bauds as lf you did.” “Miss Dash tells os to put up our bands when the question is asked. We bc^ who don't know the answer pot our left bauds, aud the boys who know the answer mt ap our right hands, and thmi Hiss )asb only asks the boys who have a right band up.” The Editor WU!
