The wounded aro doibg well. Saturn's rings nro believed fo bo composed of innumerable meteorites, revolving like moons about the planet. There has boon a storm in Philadelphia in which descended hailstones having a strong and distinctly sulphurous smell. We had no idea Philadelphia •was so wicked as that. Come, cornel Gen. Meigs has been proiihcsyingngatn •with'reference to the prowtli of OUT population. He says: "The child is now born who in his old ago will be one of 1,000,000.000 of people in the United States, of which 80.000,000 will be blacks, or of African descent." The. eleventh census will present one feature that is unique in our history. This will be the chapter on tin- growth and statLstirs of the electric.!.! industry. If electrical invention. 1 ! make- as much progress in the next ten years as in the past decade, the history of labor Having machinery will have to be rewritten. A colored man has been nominhted on the legislative Republican ticket in Ohio. He is a school teacher and has a magnificent voice, lie can make him.self distinctly hoard in all parts of the Cincinnati Music hall, something which probably not more than six men in the United States can do. There is one/ peculiarity of colored orators, they nearly alwaya have fine voices. A Church 25O Years Old. Quincy, Mass., lias had a celebration of more than local interest. Tho first church there commemorated fittingly the 850th anniversary of its foundation. Governor John Wiuthrop was prcsont at (:},„ fVf.rn^vfjlir V o ntr:i< ; ! '•'.'. hii-tlrur.uuai Its original members into an organized body. Generation after generation of Adamses, Quincys and other old New England families have worshiped within its walls, which contain memorial tab- ,Iets to the two Adams presidents. Eight generations of men have passed since the church organization was founded here, yet the society still endures, a monument to the gospel of peace and good will. Charles Francis Adams, grandson of John Quincy Adams, delivered one address, and Josiah Quincy, the sixth of the line, another, and C. P. Crancli read a poem at tho celebration. War has thundered iind peace has smiled upon our land over and again, yet within and about the historic roof of the first church the. gentle domestic scenes of joy and grief have followed each other uninterruptedly for two and a half centuries. Fair daughters have been born and reared to comely maidenhood; been wedded within its walls, have faded and grown old and been carried from its kindly doors to the burial ground, to be followed in time by their daughters over the self fame road. Boys have listened to the word preached year after year in this old lirst church, and have, gone out and made their names illustrious in (heir country's story. It may be that as long as the republic stands the old first church' of Quincy will stand too. In the course of .his address Mr. Adams quoted this from Dr. Holmes: Little of oil \vu value hero Wakes on r ilip niora of Iw huudredth year Without both fcellnK anil limiting queer. la fact, there U nothiu^ llmi keejis its youth,• Bo far as I know, but a tiv* and truth. A c!.T;;ym;in I^!"Iy !»•!::>!! ;i!) :vMr--:? to n n;r."tht^ of v/orl\im~ yourv^ m< v n ns follows: "I am never h.'ii'py imii! I have Been the extra baseball edition, ni;-l 1 nin with you in the hopo thrTt the L>:isliers will take tho pennant." Tii"so words were greeted with yells thr.t feirly raised tho roof. Seriously it H matter for j, r reut rejoicing if tire basehall crar.o hns stimulated the dc-iire for athletic culture in this country. If the present interest in athletics continue, a-i it is to be hoped it will, wo shall soon hear no more of tho physical degeneracy of tha present generation. Our white faced students and dwellers in offices aro beginning to find that sunlight, and open air exercise will do quite as much for them Ji3 it did for the pioneers. When wo add to this the all round development that systematic athletic culture gives, the result will be a human being magnificent enough physically to have fillud the ideal of even tho old Greeks. For sunshine, open air and the exercise that ia not grinding toil aro the true elixir of lifo. Through them we gain tho vital principle in its purest essence. They keep tho human being bright, breezy and good tempered. It ia encouraging to note the movement among national guard regiments in the direction of gymnastic training, [n some of the armories first class gymnasiums have been fitted up, with a trained teacher. A man ia measured there from head to foot and the measurements aro compared with a model Thua his muscular deficiencies are 9is- covercd and he is put in training accordingly. In a year or two these regiments will show not only well drilled soldiers but splendid physical men. Germany has today 830,000 trained athletes belonging to tho Turner society. Men like these it was who wrested Al- »aco and Lorraine from France in 1870. It is tho strong armed, broad chested man who wins, in peace and in war. Another excellent- result of physical training, is that those who attain the best results in athletic culture must keep themselves rigidly from excesses in smoking and drinking. A writer says the English girls of today are. noticeably taller than their mothers, and it is attributed to tho pcr ; sistent outdoor exercise of tho women of that country for the past two generations. English girls and even middle aged women ride, row, hunt, swim, shoot and sail their own yachts. An Englinh woman will sometimes wall; "pightoch miks-.-in:u -.lay.- In. our own country we have reason to bo thankful that the consumptive beauty of the past is changing into the Junonian type, made for strength and wear. If the English maiden plays tennis and even cricket with vim and enthusiasm equally -with her brother, tho American belle is fast tending tho same way. The American girl of tho future will be uo weakling. ' Strong, lithe and graceful, she will bo tho fit daughter of a country destined to witness the perfect flowering of mankind. KMM'H.

"Saint Antoine" did not require of me one quarter of tho tension of mind "Madame Bovary" has caused me. "Saint Antoino" was a discharge. I had nothing but pleasure in writing it, and tho eighteen months devoted to tho composition of its 500 pages wero tho most thoroughly voluptuous of my life hitherto. Judge then of my condition in writing "Madame Bovary." I must needs put myself every minute into a skin not mine and antipathetic to me. For six months now I have been making love platonically, and at the present moment my exaltation of mind is that of a good Catholic. 1 nm longing to go to confession.—Correspondence do Gustavo Flaubert. • "Jack shall pipe and Gill shall dance" just as long out in the open barn as they please.

Wo Ic-arn from l!ii.-i report that polygamy is dyin^ out, at least outwardly. "Polygamy is not at tho present lime openly practiced, except ia a few remote and out o 1 tho way places." .The Qenlilevloinouc insist, however, that clandestinely there 'u, -still hundreds o/ many wived KainU.aiul that plural marriages are still solemnized in secret. However, if polygamy is practiced secretly, that in a very great gain over a few years ago. Then it waa practiced Openly and ilauiitingly, in cieflanco 6f every law the United States made pre— vioua to the Edmunds iuw; — Ifr-showy that these- people no longer openly defy the whole United States. As long as convicted polygamista are regarded as martyrs, and it is a glory to •erve a term in the penitentiary, the commission do not think it will be safe to admit Utah as a iitate. Once in the Union, with the power of state lawa and ' statehood, the Mormon theocraoy would drive every Gentile and a free civiliza tiou out of Utah. So if the saintu knock at tha door during the present congress the answer should be: "Not this year."

Americana have received premiums for beer, spmo machinery, educational exhibits and silverware. The Boston public schools naturally, took a grand prize. Several California wines got a gold medal, and one exhibitor of California wines obtained a grand prize. United States government displays from tho various departments—maps, drawings and papers on agricultural, scientific and military topics—received several grand prizes, testifying to (ha excellence of tho work. Lard from Philadelphia, canned meats from Chicago and various electrical inventions received gold medals, while Edison and Elihu Thompson display grand prizes. New York carriages took a grand prize. So did Cincinnati wood, working machines and Philadelphia fur hats. Finally, the Woman's Christian Temperance Union carried off a gold medal, why we are not told, unless, it is for being good and pretty girls. The czar of Russia' is troubled in his mind because he is getting so fat. So is hia imperial highness, the sultan of Turkey. Queen Victoria has been for some years as fat and heavy as the royal Georges whose portraits she begins to resemble so strikingly. There is an infallible remedy for all. If these three rulers will consent to live for six months aa some hundreds of thousands of their subjects do year ia and year out, they will not long have to complain of sur- plua fat, It is not often that stealing becomes BO cheap and easy that there is no more money to bo made at it, but this complaint begins to arise from the publishers of pirated editions of foreign books. They eay now that everybody has gone into the business, so that the price has been reduced by rival houses below the ~coitl>7~pniuuig~ancl paper."

Samuel Armstrong, of Wapello, 88 years old and possessed of §250,000, is in 1 B:j:ieandat times so violent that it becomes necessary to confine him. His history has some queer features. For ir.any years he was a prominent and successful contractor in Cincinnati, where ha accumulated money and invested it In real estate in that vicinity. His larg e;,t holdings lay in Avondale, Greenville and Columbia, O., and they have become very valuable. About a score of yean a;?o, as he -was driving away from th( place, a man who was trespassing hurlec n hpnvy aronn nt him. Tho missile struct him in the back of the head, and from that time on he began to lose his mind. . While this infirmity was coming on and before, it had proceeded so far as to call for interference in his behalf, he was Induced to transfer hia Avondalo estate to an unprincipled man, who, it is said did not render him the slightest compen sation for. it. Litigation followed, am the sale was set aside. Some time after this a Creenville man was appointed his guardian. The Avon dide property waa sold for $100,000. The rest of his property is still untouched Armstrong was never married. His onl; heirs are his nephews and nieces, chil dren of his sister, and nearly all of them live in Louisa county, not far from Wa polio. Several years ago he was brough there and since then has made hia horn with his niece and her husband, Mr. anc Mrs. S. J. Paris. He is subject to eevera harassing delusions, principal among which ia. a firm belief in witches. -H sees them come into his room througl small openings, such aa keyholes, and ia greatly bothered by them in various ways. He keeps the crevices in his room closely stopped and wears straps aroun his ankiea to keep the witches from crawling up tho legs of hia pants. — Chi caeo News.
