PAVKB. enemies of the Republican party stood upon such defenseless ground as they do tit the present time. They propose nothing of reform and stand before the country to-dny the very perfeetiou of a hollow sham. The Democratic con- press has disclosed its inability to practice economy and has thereby convicted itRclf of hypocrisy. The longer they sit in session the higher will be the r ..ll of Republican majorities. McKnight's Case. J. M, MCKNIOIIT of Hutchinson, ICan., will likely be sent to New Orleans to do some special bank examining business for Comptroller LACKY. MC KNIOIIT was one of the examiners appointed from Kunsas, and some time ago some reckless charges were made against him and he was suspended until the ehurgea were auswercdj The matter had been presented to Senator PMMn, and a few days before his death he was convinced that MCKNIOIIT was being wrongfully, if not maliciously perseouted, and went over to Secretary KosTKit to assure him of his convictions. The secretary chanced to be absent, and that was the last time the senator visited the treasury department. The matter was in this way delayed and the investigation has been going along slowly and carefully. This morning the comptroller said he had received dispatches from Judge MAHTIN of Hutchinson and Judge PETKRS of Newton which removed alldoubts, and he was perfectly satisfied that MC KNIOIIT had been falsely accused, as those making the charges hod in all instances failed to substantiate their assertions, and in all cases MOKNIOHT had given a manly and straight forward explanation. The comptroller said MCKNIOHT'S work was first class, and had been shown to bo without a fault. He was very competent and was peculiarly adapted to the work. He had needed him for some weeks 4n Borne expert work, and he would now be assigned to duty as soon us the details could be arranged. The above from the Kansas City .1 our- nal outlines probably the most noteworthy case of the kind that has ever como up from the state of Kansas. In the first place the attack was conceived in the womb of political envy and nursed in the cradle of malice. For six months MCKNIOIIT was forced to face a malignant and ceaseless fire, but character can only be assailed, not de Btroyed. He never feared an opeu enemy regardless of what he might say but the more stealthy and venomous the reptile is, the darker the recesses, in which he seeks seclusion and repose, and this being the chosen method for his destruction much time was required to uncover the character of the as sassins thatfollowed like sleuth hounds upon his track. His record from his cradle to the present has been carefully scrutinized by the eagle eye of an artful foe, which has terminated as it only could in complete and absolute vindication, and his character stands in the treasury department at Wash inglon as gold-tried in the crucible. From the first intimation that he had been attacked, he protested and only courted the fullest investigation. This was accorded him by the comptroller of the currency. Hon. E. S. LACKY, who is a careful, shrewd "and just man, who would not turn a man down without duo reason. Being thorough and deliberate, he patiently and fairly devoted time to the investigation of tho ease, which for relentlessness and bitterness of attack on the one side, and the firmness and perser- verance of the other was without a precedent in the history of that great and important branch of the United States service. In his resolve to do no one an injury he stands as a brilliant exception, and deserves the admiration of the people whom he is so ably serving. It must be understood that the Kansas appointee at Washington is on an entirely different footing from what he wus when the renowned INOALLS and the lamented PLUMB stood behind him like a stone wall; they, together with seven of the best congressmen in the national legislature, .Senator Pun- KINS stands willing and ready, but having the work of ten men thrust upon him, he can take too little time to look after the welfare of all those who seek for favor and perhaps just recognition. It was an exceptional case, with exceptional conditions and surroundings. Mr. MCKNIOIIT is to be complimented upon his tardy success, and Mr. LACKY is to be admired for the justness of his judgment. of the Nathan Daboll who fonnaea tne annual almanac. Now England is claimed by many as the nativo place of the, comic almanac, for somo folks reckon Ben Franklin's Poor Richard" publication in that class, and for two generations the New England almanac and the Biblo furnished the bulk of the averago Yankee former's reading. Faith in the weather pie- dictions was so strong that thousands of farmers regulated their work thereby, and about sixty years ago this faith was confirmed in a very remark, jle manner. By mistake snow not predicted for July 4. There was a gmernl laugh, but the snow came—not much, of course, but enough to excite general amazement, and thereafter Daboll'a predictions woro gospel. Nathan Daboll worked out the tobies and predictions and issued the first almanac in 1772, He W,J professor of mathematics at Plainfield academy and author of the famousold "Daboll's Arithmetic." In 1818 his son, Nathan, took np the work and continued it till 1MM, when one of his six sous, David A., succeeded him. They have always pursued the same system. They have a journal of tho weather for two or three generations past and a table of conjunctions of sun, moon and planets.

Tho ''New England Almanac and Farmers' Friend" bus been issued annually since 1773, and alwayB by a Daboll. With very tow exceptions the calculations have-been tnado in the same house, which is still in good repair and occupied by David A, Daboll, grandson DAVID A. DABOLL. weather several times thoy assume that it will be so for the coming year, and they hit it often enough to convince the farmers. The almanac also contains nautical tables and all sorts of information for seafaring men. Indeed the Dabolla are all mathematicians, and one of them invented the foghorn which warns mariners off the coast in thick weather. The old house is in the hamlet of Center Grotou, about four miles east of Now London, and for several years a nautical school was taught there, at which more than 200 New England boys were fitted for the navy. The Daboll almanac for 18D2 predicts hot weather, beginning on June 15, and a great drouth till July 1, then very light showers only till the 18th and 19th, when there will be very heavy rains. It is to be hoped that "Old Daboll," as they call him, is correct, for the wheat growers of all the central states could not have better weather than that if they made it themselves. "A dry June for wheat" is an old proverb, and '.then "lato July rain for fall pastures." (< THE NEW IMMORTAL. • " t Plerro Lot!," Octave FeullIet'S Successor in tho French Acadumy. f Louis Marie Julien Viaud is the author of the several books written by "Pierre Loti," but as this young man, who has recently been elected to a seat in the French academy, prefers to be known by his pen name, the world will probably speak of him only as Pierre Loti. Ho ia a conspicuous illustration of the Baying that "most great men are vain." Ho iB almost consumed with a sense of his own importance. His election to the academy over tho heads of men admittedly much better than Himself seems to have surprised no one more than tho fortunate man, and that is saying a great deal, for Loti has recently been discussed more even than wus his first book, "Aziyade," published anonymously, which made him faiiiouu iu a few weeks. Much of the talk concerning Loti has been in the nature of criticism of the intense and all pervading egotism of his address delivered upon tho occasion of his entry to the academy, when ho used the pronoun "Jo" (I) no less than 175 times; spoke of "my intellectual friend, Octave Fenil- let," whose successor ho is, and then, M. Zola being present, launched forth into the most vehement denunciation of the school of naturalists, df which tho author of "Nana" is the foremost exponent. Thero were also allusions, more or less judicious, to Daudet and Flaubert. The academy cenBors expunged the objectionable remarks, and the harm would have thus been in a measure undone had not Loti, with his refreshing disregard of conventionalities, thrown academical precedent to the winds by causing to bo published the full text of his address, as it was delivered, with all the expurgations restored. It is pleasing to learn that Loti and Zola have, figuratively speaking, "kissed and made up." Of Loti's lifo there is little of interest to be told. Born in Rochefort, Jan. 14, 1850, he received a moderately good education in the local schools and entered the naval academy at the age of seventeen. In course of time he became an officer of the navy, and has visited almost every country in the world. It was in 1870 that his first work, the fascinating little idyl, "Aziyade," appoarod. Shice thon he has written a dozen books, each being an improvement upon its predecessor. Loti was married in 1880 to Mile. Jeanno de Frono Ferriere, a member of on old Bordeaux family. His literary stylo is exquisite, albeit somewhat artificial, and it is predicted that, now his ambition has been gratified, he will startlo the world with his next book. Unfortunate Hanklnson. Mr. Hankinson—Hero are some chocolate creams, Johnny. Do yon think Miss Irene will bo down soon? Johnny (after stowing them awuy securely)—Yes, sis '11 bo down purty soon, I reckon. I wish it was you, Mr. Hankinson, sis was goin to marry instead of that stingy old Snagsford.-—Chicago Tribune. VIEWS OF NOTABLES. NOT THEIR PERSONAL OPINIONS, BUT THEIR LATEST PORTRAITS. Tho Umporor of Japan, lllsmarok anil Lord Toiinyitnn Have Reoontly Faced the rhotographur—Progress of tho "Yankees or tho Orient." Three very great men have recently given to the world the latest views of themselves—that is, each having done something to attract attention, has sat for his picture. Tennyson has launched his new play, "Tho Foresters," and Bis- KMPEROR MTJTSUHITO. tnarck has again become so activo in German affairs that there is talk of Ms return to power. The latest pictures of these two as presented here look familiar enough, but it may excite surprise to learn that tho third is that of tho emperor of Japan. His majesty, Mutsuhito, is, however, really a man of more importance for the future than either of the others, for he is in tho midst of his great work. No other country in the world probably has made such swift advances in the post twenty-five years as Japan, and it is largely the work of this ruler. The Japanese were long ago called the "Yankees of the orient," and since 1807 they have adapted'their systems of trade, dress, society and government to tho western model so rapidly that they are counted among tho most advanced of nations. They are indeed a peculiar people, and among their many peculiarities not the least is that they are the only nation in the world practically without a religion. On the 18th of February, 1807, Mut- Buhito succeeded his father in the midst of that extraordinary revolution which made tho mikado supreme and opened the country to foreigners. The next year he was crowned and in 1809 mar- BISMARCK. ried a noble lady named Harako. Of their children but one survives, and that is Prince Yoshilvito-Harakb Miga, who was crowned in 1880 as heir apparent. Although the progress of the country has been BO rapid and all western visitors are enthusiastic as to its future, so much remains to bo done that the future of the liberal Mutsuhito is of interest to the world. Certainly his action in sitting for a portrait to please the Europeans ihows a remarkable change from the days when the mikado lived absolutely secluded. It is probable that no man's career is more familiar to Americans than is that of Bismarck. Suffice it then to say that ho was born April 1, 1815, and is theroforo seventy-seven years old, but of such a firm constitution that it is quite possible he may serve the empire many LORD TENNYSON. years yet. When he entered public life Austria was the dominant power in Germany, and there were some thirty distinct and independent principalities, and when he retired all these were in one great empire, and it practically supreme in Europe, while Austria had become little more than an annex to the once oppressed Hungary. Alfred Tennyson was born in 1800, the third of twelve children of a Lincolnshire clergyman. He began in childhood to write poetry, and at the age of twenty gained the chancellor's medal at Cambridge for his poem in blank versu entitled "Timbuctoo." His Intest prc- inction is "The Foresters," a rhymed play setting forth scenes in England in the days of Robin Hood, and in honor Df its appearance he gives this portrait to the world. 3,000 SHOES, i 1,500 PAIRS. 125 Dozen. -10 5-12Gross.
