The bright and. sunny days, which are so meagrely scattered through the month and which makes March storms additionally disagreeable by invidious comparison, tempted the Rambler from his winter haunts. While the /ee- ble efforts of the infant spring to appear cheerful and attractive are calculated to tempt from the reveries occasioned by the blue flumes of the natural gas, • 'the grip" lurks in the air and the Rambler fears its insidious attack and hastens. * » * The Rambler notes however the army of men employed in scraping the mud from the thoroughfares and he wonders if a city election is coming on He is inclined to follow the loads as they are hauled away to see if thev are dumped in Riverside Park as an order of the council requires.

He has heard of the statement of the great Barnum that the American people insisted on being hum-bugged and that he was pandering to that weakness. As he walked carelessly along the street he was amused at a sign reading "We are selling to-day below cost." The generosity of the proprietor in squandering his substance for the public good thus instead of endowing a chair in some college was praiseworthy if the statement was truthful but did any one accept the hyperbole for truth? In Paris custom is different. A merchant, who had evidently been in the United States, advertised -'The best five cent cigar in the city." On the complaint of other vendors he was brought before a magistrate and, on failure to prove that the components of his cigar were of a better quality than any others of the same price, he was fined. The American merchants are so given to extravagant statement -in the praise of their wares that people expect it and, with a full knowledge of the untruthfulness of the statements, are influenced by them. Barnum was right. City Coav.-ntlon.

The Mexicans •are slow and laboriously polite, So are the Turks. Should you admire a horse in Turkey you are told that it is yours. If, however, you chance to be unfamiliar with the customs of the country and possess the average American greed you will discover the difference between tho nationalities. The generosity which prompts the tender must be .met by an equal generosity in refusal. If you accept and lead the horse joyfully away,you will not own it long. It is probable that you will have an opportunity- to admire it again in the same stable in which you first saw it, the next day. What a strange difference is thus occasioned by .a mere form, but how much more admirable is the'apparent generosity of the Turk which after all has its ( existence only because of the absolute A Creditable Fubllcnllon. ~ Pharos: The Journal issued a very creditable boom supplement this morning. It is handsomely illustrated and contains an excellent review of Logansport's varied industries. Such reviews are of great value to a city, and Mr. Pratt deserves credit for placing before the public so valuable a narration of the'progress that has been made during the past few year ; . One scarcely knows how good a city we have until its resources are pointed out in detail. protection the custom, of the affords! A Cat'* tons Journey. Yesterday afternoon, relates the Columbia (S.

When the bar- Tel was nearly half unpacked the .mewing of a cat was heard by Mr. ;Kinkead. He proceeded a little further and discovered wrapped up and lying between some crockery, a pretty •gray cat. It was immediately taken out and cared for, and to-night was .doing well. How's Till*: We offer One Hnndred Dollars Reward for any case ol Catarrh that cannot be cured by taking Hall's Catarrh Cure.

As the road cost the town about $90,000 or at the rate of $1,500 for every new 'inhabitant it has brought, the investment can hardly be considered a very profitable one for the Peruvians. Harry Miller, of Ft. Wayne, whose name has been on the pay rolls of the Pennsylvania longer than that of any other man in their employ west of Pittsburg, on Thursday evening celebrated his seventy-fifth birthday. Grandchildren and great-grandchil- dren'were present at tho family gathering, and presented the old gentlemen with a fine watch and chain. Mr. Miller is employed in the company's machine shop at Ft. Wayne, and is said to do as much work in ten hours as any of the young machinists in his department. The project to build, a railroad on the tow-path of the Wabash canal is again being being agitated. The people behind the scheme say that Terre Haute is to be the western terminus of tho road. So many times has the road been built (on paper) that but little credence will be given to the reports until the road is completed. Within the last two years Indianapolis men were to build the road, and stated that they had purchased the rails and cross-ties, but the scheme fell through, for some never- explained reason. "The impression prevails that the Wabash Railroad Company pursuaded them to abandon the enterprise. A company was quietly organized, a few days ago, at Gallon, 0., which proposes to parallel the Pittsburg to Chicago. The road will start at Beaverston, on the Pan Handle, and run west through New Philadelphia, Galion, Bucyrus and Lima to Fort Wayne. It is proposed to run a branch from Bucyrus on a direct line to Lafayette, Ind., thence through Paris, III., to St. Louis. It will be seventy miles shorter than the Fort Wayne route between. Pittsburg and : Chicago. The officers of the company are as follows: President, John Lee: vice-president H. C. Carhart: secretary Jacob Riblet: treasurer, M. Deal.

The usher re ceived him politely as a fit subjec for congregational concern and led him to a front seat that his present might be fully known. As he passed down the aisle he could read plainly in the expression of • some of the faces the mental exclamation, "Well, if there ain' that old sinner,"- The minister prayed at him and the curious starsd to see the effect of his words but the Rambler was meditating anc wondering; how long the Pharisee would so strongly mark church organization>and when broad and liberal views would cause the religious belief of every sect to be honored among all. It seems to him that some time mankind must recognize the fact that the mysterious and uncertain creeds of religion, as the tenets- of humanity, received coloring and cast from the prejudices and weakness of humanity and that no one belief authorized its' acceptors to sit as 'judges upon the rest of mankind. The .Rambler could not but think, that, the truest religion was not necessarily marked by a ritual nor the absence, of it nor could he realize .that there was any striking difference between the daily prayer of his old school teacher which every boy in school could repeat and that of the prayer book.

[Other Papers Please Copy.] Newspaper Kthie*. A newspaper gains neither character nor-ihfiuence by abandoning good manners. It may indeed make itself disagreeable and annoying, and so silence opposition, as a pole-cat may effectually close the wood path which you had designed to take. It may be feared, and in' the sams way as that animal—feared and despised. But this effect must not be confounded with newspaper power and influence. Tt is exceedingly annoying undoubtedly to be placard ali over town as a liar or a donkey, a hypocrite or a sneak thief. But although the effect is most unpleasant, very little abJLty is required to produce it. A little pauer and printing, a little paste, a great deal ; of malice, and a host of bill stickers are all that are needed, and even the pecuniary cost is not large. The effect is produced, but it does not show ability or force or influence upon the part of its producer.—From the Editors Easy Chair by Geo. William Curtis in Harper's Magazine for April.
