Last year the crop in the United states amounted to 7,000,000 Bales. The fat girl who was recently married in new York has kicked the tube bucket in this Case being entirely out of All proportion in describing the lady s exit from this mundane sphere. She weighed 517 pounds. It is supposed that con nubian Bliss was too much for her and hence she died. The frail creature was Only 17 years old having increased in weight during the last five years 2g7 pounds. What a dizzy Angel she will make. Miss Jennie Collins so Well known in connection with Boffin s Bower in Boston has just sent out her thirteenth annual report. She gives Many pitiful instances of the Straits to which working women Are reduced by the keen competitions of Trade which keep wages Down. In the course of the past year she says five Young women in whom she was particularly interested died of consumption and one committed suicide by drowning All under Twenty five years of age. Quot they could earn from three to four dollars per week. It would be impossible for them to get Twenty one of the plainest meals for less than three dollars consequently they had to resort to one meal or a meal and a half a exhaustion an i Consu Quot option soon followed.

The director of the mint has recently published a statement showing the amount of Coin Bullion and paper currency in the country on the is of october 1883. The aggregate amount at that Date was $1,780-597,823. Of this amount in the Treasury i61,688,810 was Gold Bullion and �5,107,-911 was Silver Bullion.

The amount of currency made up of Gold and Silver coined and uncoiled of Gold certificates and Silver certificates and of Legal tender notes and National Bank notes and forming an aggregate of $1,730.597,823 would seem to be abundantly adequate to the utmost Quot wants of it presents a singularly Mongrel system and yet if it were symmetrical the amount is largely in excess to the real wants of Trade the Silver element of this currency is gradually gaining upon the Gold element and taking its place and has been Ever since the enactment of the Silver Law in 1878, and in the end unless the Law is essentially modified will become the larger element and practically displace Gold As the Standard of value. The Treasury if the coinage of Silver dollars is continued will at be compelled to disgorge its Silver contents and Force them upon the people and when it does this Silver dollars will become the chief Coin Factor in our currency system and paper notes will be graded to their value while Gold will retire and seek its Home in other countries leaving the people to enjoy All the luxury that can be found in Quot the Dollar of the now an it then the mean in squid appears in Buoh numbers As to make it Utnage that a greater proportion of the won Imi do not Yolanta Rily choose the ancient and honorable profession of old maid. There could hardly be a More despicable male being than the Man who it has just been found has been forcing his wife for years to bit from the store in which she was employed and has been living off the proceeds of Lier crimes. In Justice he ought to Bear far the greater part of the penalty and Jet in Law it will be a great Triumph to be Able to punish him equally with his Rie Tim for such his wife seems to have been weak and deplorable As her conduct was. Another of the mean husbands shot his wife in Brooklyn on tuesday and carious by enough one is More impressed with the meanness of the act than with its criminal characters. He was another worthless fellow was jealous of his wife and shot he in a peculiarly mean and cowardly Way. Yet in spite of every warning of this kind we presume the girls will go on saying Quot yes Quot and there will be new marriages in the papers every Day. Fetoai Chicago comes the interesting statement that or. J. L Case the owner of the wonderful Little horse Jay Eye see has refused an offer of $60,000 for him playing the Pri e at $100,000. Life must seem an awful responsibility to a beast whose instinct teaches him As Jay Eye see s doubtless does that he is Worth As much at that.
