Secretary Windom assures the country that during July and August tho poblio debt was reduced $20,910,180, reports to the contrary notwithstanding. Tho Chicago Times wanta to know, since juries are kept under lock and key, and not allowed to read newspapers, or to converse with anybody, why judges are not thus shut off from the world and held as prisoners too. South Dakota la not so afraid of alien property owners as most of ber sister states.

VI- • ' - . .. . » .,M ' *"*:*;' morn now as it was in 1814. This is a great peanut year, and the peanut Ixxmi is on. At present this Virginia staplo constitues n large part of tho cargo of the steamers leaving Norfolk. Thousands of sacks arc piled high upon the docks and in tho warehouses of that city. It is a picture worth seeing, the negroes tossing the bags and wheeling them in rhythmic motion, singing a sort of chant to keep time with their movements and lighten the labor. About Dressed Heel*. There are some mysteries that bid fair —to g&dowia-through the centuries un- eolved. To the mystery of the Man In .the Iron Mask we may now add the mystery of American dressed beef. Cattle raisers testify before the senate committee that is investigating the question that there is no longer any money in rearing cattle. The dressed beef syndicate buy the animals at their own figures, and these figures are 45 per cent, lower than they were eight years ago, so low, In fact, that disgusted ranchmen are go- Ing out of the cow business. Beef eaters, on the other hand, swearoneand all that they pay just as much for beef now as they did eight years ago. Does the dressed beef syndicate get the profit? They declare with tears in their eyes that they do not. There isn't any profit in the business, and nobody gets any money. Who then does get it? Probably it is the cat Congressman Sullivan. The world's champion has declared it to be his doubled and twisted determination to give up prize fighting, and go in for politics strong. Ho will enter the ring for congress in Boston thia fall, he says, and he knows he has friends enough there to elect him, which Is probably the case. He seems, however, to bo quite unmindful of his possible term in the Mississippi state prison. Perhaps he will have to put off his congressional career for two years, taking that in after serving his time in the other place, making, u it were, a triumphal march from the penitentiary to the house of representatives. Doubtless .there have been men \B congress who ought to have been in the penitentiary, both before and after their terms at the Capitol. But what a royal sight it would be to nee the champion in the national house. The honorable gentlemen would have to be on their manners from the word go, and there wouldn't be any foolishness in th.e immediate vicinity of the member Crom Boston.. John would keep them itraight. - In justice to the champion it la to be remarked that he has always felt the germ, of growing greatness within him. .Be has said: "ym goin" to quit my business. My mother never liked it. She always meant tcqr me to be a priest." John has thus compromised between priest and prizefighter, it will be seen, End has consented to bo a congressman. But the greatest lark of all would be to Bee John in one of those states of tremendous unconsciousness into which he occasionally lapses, walk to the other end of the hall and "clean out" the United States senate. There would foe nothing for a senator to dodge behind except one of his own manuscript . speeches. Or he might lay John out , cold by hitting him with a copy of The Congressional Record. Among the champion's reasons tor believing himself a suitable person to aid !n swaying tho national destinies ore the following; . la tfcs flrtt place 1 have alwoya supported Che JJttrty and have always Toted for it. I am aou&d ' tf tor as my political record U concerned, and I feei tb&l I ilescrto the support of the party oa itetaoora. J&ay maa who doubta my popularity with th« 4rn3ricfta people bos only got to travel about with ipd to get rid of that notiou. @om« may criticbw my occupation In Ufa. They Okra't know what they are telUng about. Sly Jrtasneia Is, nod always ho* bean, ever since I came before the public, to oocour&ga Now Fashions In Funerals. "Are you an undertaker?" asked si lawyer of a witness in court. "No, sir; I am a funeral director," was the reply. That Is one of the latest fashions in funerals. The man of the hearse now calls himself a funeral director. Large funerals are going out. too. as an adept in the burying art observes, except "among the poorer classes and among foreigners." Where there used to be forty or more carriages at a prominent citizen's burial, there are no«v not nioi'o than from four to eight. The reasons for this seem based on common sense The long rida to a burial ground, the standing upon tho damp earth-while tho last services strain and excitement, sometimes cause serious and fatal illness Especially this has Iwen noted in times when pneumonia waa prevalent. The lamented l)r. Ueorgo Mr Flearch attended the funeral of one of bis friends who died of pneumonia. The weather was raw and dump Dn Beard went homo, was seized with pneumonia, and died in a few days. Hjs wife attended his burial. In a week she was carried off with the same disease. For the same reason—considerations of health—men ,no longer stand about a grave with uncovered heads in bad weather. The tendency, moreover, is now for ladies not to go to burials at all. These are attended only by the male relatives of the family who are in sound health,_ : The strain on the nervous system and tho dangers to the health of -women make the sanitary reasons doubly strong in their case. Indeed, burials 'are often now conducted so privately that scarcely anybody is present at the actual interment except the undertaker's men. When there are pallbearers, hired assistants carry tho collln, while the pallbearers walk beside them. Tho heavy burden of the coffin would frequently exhaust pallbearers completely, especially when they are old men. On the whole, all these modern changes seem dictated by a sensible regard for the ' health and comfort of the living. --M;-!; j.r.n ^T.o,-.,T.r:h !-.;•<: ppr^ (•.,<'!: U i"">e'> t-'i r:i;t fnV-r.iir:. —Circuit, court I>r-sn::S !n this (W.'iiiy on Motidsiv, 0c!ob?r:!!. —Union JIow Oo., No. 1.

The night of the killing I was awakened and went out, when I heard the sheep running wildly about, and the distinct bark of dogs above all. It is impossible that wolves did the killing, and friendly dogs the barking. Of late dogs have been around, but a corral has kept the sheep guarded."
