The onthusiaem at the State Encampment of the Grand Army of the Republic at Muncle shows that while the veterans of the war of the rebellion are growing older, they are stiH full of patriotic fire. While the>y recognize that in a few years many of them will have departed from the gcenes ot earth they intend that the younger generation shall be as patriotic as that to which they belong. The movement, therefore, to secure more attention to the study of American history In the public schools IB a commendable one. The G. A. R. ehould keep this ' prominently before the public and create a sentiment that will force legislation In the subject. A bill of this character was introduced at the last session of the legislature but was evidently not pushed with necessary energy or it would have been placed on the statute books. The following are the resolutions adopted by the G A. R. "Whereas, Under the providence of God, to make treason odious Lincoln and Grant lived, and hundreds of thousands of lives and mtlliODB of treasure were sacrificed by an earnest and patriotic prople; and whereas, In all lands and In all time, love of country and patriotic devotion to its institutions have evtr been recognized as tbe true gauges of pure an'd^perfect citizenship; and whereas. the'-'.broken crowns and wrecked monumentg:;of-the ages are the memorials of lax faith and forgotten allegiance; and, whereas the safety and perpetuity ot a oountrv depends upon the properly directed Intellect of its youth; and, whereas, pouth Is BO much the season of Impressions, and impressions the basis of belief, leading up to conviction, that it amounts to criminal indifference to permit the facts of history to be suppressed or distorted, as they are conveyed through educational channels, and whereas, the school histories read and taught in the schools of Indiana, notably Mont, ffomery'd, Barnes's and Etlls's tend to prevent or change the truths stamped on the paces of time from 1861 to 1865. to measure by a common standard and from the same level the traitors Davis and Lee, and tbe patriots Lincoln and Grant; to justify the promptings and first steps of trea son, and to belittle the deeds and prowess of tbe Union army by giving undue prominence to momentary sue. cesses of the traitors, therefore, belt "Resolved, That we. the surviving soldiers of the war for the Union, declare that the treason of those long past years had no justification In theory or In fact; that the leaders in that unholy cause were not alone branded by overt acts of treason but by perjury and other crimes, and that-the place in history of such traitors as Davis and Lee is below that of Benedict Arnold; that In comparison with the work of the traitor army, the grand achievements and heroic deeds of the patri otic sons of the Norlh are aa the glow of the morning to the shades of evening, and that these facts should be taught to and impressed upon the minds of tbe youth of the land; thai a history which does not mention treason or traitors in connection with those day? Js unworty a place in any educational system. "Rsso'ved. That the so called histories of Montgomery. Barnes and Ellis are mere caricatures, and that they pervert the facts of history pander to the opinions and feelings t,f traitors, mislead the youth of tbe land, tend to create, f. sentiment of disloyalty, if not to encourage treason, and are unworthy a place in our public acbools and should be suppreiied. "Resolved, That the department commander appoint a permanent committee of five, whose duty it shall be to bring about tbe adoption snd teaching in our public ichooli of » just and patriotic history—one that «ball effl- body of all treason and all of patriotism and shall hold UP for the emulation o* our youth the lives ted deedi of the Union's defender*." Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest V, S. Gov't Report A MAMMOTH FAILURE. Cleveland, tlin Ic.'ot i>7 Uio C«i.iinlty-Cre- n.fcin~ Cuckoos. One of the most extraordinary manifestations of the time is the cool assumption of the advocates of the national administration th::t no matter what injury the public scr. , ; -;e has suffered since March 4, IS'J.",. Mr. Cleveland is to be heldblamdo's. He always has been right. If his advice had been followed the country would have prospered and the democracy to-day would be stronger than ever. This is what his friends say to-day. There is plenty of evidence that this contention is the result of a clear understanding: having been reached by the president's friends. This was indicated by the unanimity of the sentiment expressed by the few newspapers that continue to stand by tbe administration in their views of the work of the Fifty-third congress. They all agreed that the failure of tbe congress came from men who were resolved to frustrate the wonderful reforms conceived in Mr. Cleveland's great mind. In accordance with this policy, Mr. Eckles, the comptroller of the currency, contributes an article to the Forum Magazine' on "The Business World vs. the Politicians," in which the following 1 occurs: "The great service which President Cleveland has just done the country has not been in. pointing out the evils which afflict our • financial body and suggesting the remedies necessary to rid us of them, but in his directing: and fixing 1 the attention of the business interests of the country upon the fact that a commercial and industrial revival cannot be expected, or "continuing loss to every citizen prevented, or national and individual financial credit and integrity maintained, or ultimate disaster averted, until the' legislative branch of the government repeals laws which are now working harm, and enacts others which will prove of public benefit. However any citizen may differ with the president upon political questions, the great majority of the American people must, when the doubt which now envelops the country's financial integrity and its ability to maintain the world's commercial monetary standard is dispelled, credit him with a courage strong enough to have led him to do the right thing because it was right, despite strenuous opposition or but half-hearted support within his own party and antagonism from the other party. It is safe to say that when partisan zeal and rancor have yielded, to a judgment based upon truth and justice, those that are now his bitterest enemies will concede that he displayed statesmanship in a great crisis, and proved equal to the emergency." The time has passed for intelligent judgment to concede to Mr. Clevelani the possession of statesmanlike power. It is conceded that Mr. Cleveland is an honest man. He desires public improvement, but his methods arc so crude; his ignorance is so varied and amazing; his egotism is so colossal, that he has succeeded in a comparatively short time in sinking the country from a condition of unexampled prosperity to one of widespread distress and poverty. To undertake to exonerate him from the blame of what has been done is more than presumptuous. He must shoulder his responsibilities. For indorsing his heresies, and for beinff willing to follow him in bis aimless wan- de'rings, the democratic party must accept its share of the blame. No effort of Mr. Cleveland's friends to save his reputation will avail. He is a mammoth and hopeless failure. He is the greatest pretender who ever achieved high office in tho United States, and the fact that he was twice able to impose on the American people is not particularly creditable to their intelligence. It is just as foolish and idle to endeavor to try and absolve the dcmoc- racv. The Sew York Times seems to be disposed to make the effort. In an article published recently, it says: "Strictlyspeaking, the Fifty-third congress was not democratic—at least, not in its concluding session. It was largely populist, largely republican, largely democratic. The republicans had a plurality. The democrats had certainly no majority." This is cnckooism run mad, 'What did the New York Times claim the morning after the election of the Fifty-third congress? Did it then, or at any time anterior to tbe repudiation of Mr. Cleveland by his party, deny that'the congress was democratic by a heavy majority—that there were in the senate 43 democrats. _"9 republicans and 0 populists, and in the bouse -2-2-2 democrats, 124 republicans and S populists'. 1 The effort to relieve tbe president and his party for responsibility in these circumstances is too grotesque for serious consideration. Cuckooism at last has run mad.—Albany Journal. —Here is an interesting.idea forttne housewife who is troubled with the aggravating flies flourishing in their furnace-heated rooms long after cold weather is supposed to have destroyed them. The siiggestion comes from abroad that the fragrant geranium— the old-fashioned rose geranium beloved by our grandmothers—keeps flies away. A moderate-sized geranium of this variety is said to be so disagreeable to flies that they, avoid its neigh-, borhood. and two or three of those plants in a room -will drive them out altogether. CRUELTY IN GREENLAND. Barbitrouii TcuturcH Ttiirr* of the 2!arrlnc« Customs. For wanton cruelty in the capture ol a bride wo must go to Greenland. There we find something more than simulated violence in the method of capture and the means by which the girl is retained. Dr. Xanscn, in his account of his journey "Across Greenland," says that on the west coast marriage nowadays roughly follows the lines of marriage in Europe, but on the east coast old customs prevail. A man having made up his mind to take to himself a wife, goes to the tent of a family, one of whose girl members meets his views, catches her by the hair or in some other equallj' rude way, and drags her forth to his home. He"there presents her with a bucket or some useful domestic utensil, and the ceremony is complete. According to Baron Nordenskiold, etiquette requires that the bride should receive hard blows. She docs not submit readily, but bewails her fate, appears witJi torn garments and disheveled hair, and makes a show of getting away from her husband. Sometimes her grief is sincere, and a sensitive European would certainly not know whether it was or not. lie might be tempted to interfere, in which case he would probably -find himself opposed by the bride as well as bridegroom. In order that the apparently miserable woman might be compelled to remain in her new home, the' barbarous custom used to exist of branding her feet so that they were too painful for her to walk. By the time they were well she could with p7-opriety declare herself resiffncd to her position. In Greenland, it is easy to tell who is married and who is not. The Esqui- maux women gather up their hair into a huge tuft on the top, tying it with a ribbon, the color of which denotes their position. A maid wears red, a married woman blue, a widow, black; a widow anxious to remarry, black and red; a widow too old to remarry, white. ONE HUNDRED MILLION STARS. Dow A»tronomer» Compute the Number In the Heaven*. Let us see what richness of stellar . distribution is implied by this number of 100,000,000 of visible stars, says the Gentleman's Magazine. It may be easily shown that the area of the 'whole sky in both hemispheres is 41,055 square degrees. This gives 2,424 stars to the square degree. • The moon's apparent diameter being slightly over half a degree (31 dcg. 5 mm.), the area of its disk is about onc- fiftli of a square degree. The area of the whole star sphere is consequently about 200,000 times the area of the full moon. A total of 100,000,000 of stars gives therefore 500 stars to each space of sky in area to the full moon. This seems a. large number, but stars scattered over as thickly as this would appear at a considerable distance apart when viewed with a telescope of a h igh power. As the area of the moon's disk contains about 7SO square minutes of arc, there would not be an average of even one star to each square minute. A pair of stars half a minute, or thirty seconds, apart would form a very wide double star, and with stars placed at even this distance the moon's disk would cover about 3,000, or six times the actual number visible in the largest telescope. WHY ICE FLOATS. It I» Specifically Lighter ThuiJ Water JoM Abont to Freeze. Ice is specifically "lighter" than water just about to freeze, and, therefore, floats upon it, says an exchange. There is one reason why the formation of ice usually, but not always, begins at tbe surface. Another reason is because ol its peculiar law of expansion. The general law is that cold induces contraction. This holds good in the case of water only to a certain point. When water has cooled down to within 7.4 degrees of freezing it ceases to contract as before, and, with increased cold, actually begins to expand, and continues to do so until it freezes. This expansion causes the colder portions of the water to rise to the surface. Above we have said that ice does not always begin to form at the surface ot the water. The exception is in the case of what is known as "ground" or "anchor ice." In this case the whole body of the water is cooled at the same time to below the freezing point, and the substances at the bottom, snob as the stones and pebbles of river or lake beds, serve as a nucleus or point of congela- tion and crystallization for the water. This rare species of ice is formed under such peculiar circumstances that other* than students and experimenters seldom see it. ^^ — The cups of the Assyrians' closely .resemble o'ur saucers. Every nobleman and gentleman had. his own cup and cup bearer, the latter of whom always accompanied him to a feast, carrying before him the cup of gold, silver, crystal or marble, which his master only used on .state occasions. Saucers for'cups were introduced in the latter part of the eighteenth century, and at first were greatly ridiculed, the persons who employed them being said not to be able to drink without having 1 two cups.

Frequent FlRht* with th« K«t« and Mice tH>oD Which TIi«y Pr»y. In the unused basement of an old church in Eivcrdale thercTis a colony of bats that rarely po out, but find their subsistence among 1 tho rats and mice they catch there, sa3's the New York Sun. They hang- during- the day head downward from the sides of the stono foundations by the aid of the peculiar hooks which arc at tho joints of their wings and when they are not sleeping- they scurry around after food. The janitor' of the church whose duties frequently cause him to go into the basement has several times witnessed battles between the bats and the large black rats which infest the place. A-dozen of them will watch patiently for hours fqr such small prey as a mouse i and when one appears they swoop down upon him and after a lively struggle amid much squealing- and flapping- of wings gainst each oilier they generally subdue him. After that fight is over there is another among .the bats themselves to sec which shall get the biggest share of the prey. If in the conflict any of the bats is wounded or otherwise incapacitated from taking care of himself the other bats sel upon iii™ and eat him, too. Last summer the church was entirely freed from them for a short time. This was brought afcout by the furnace tender, 'who left the window open till midnight and then when the bats had •flown away on their nocturnal journeying he closed it. When the bats returned they flapped around the window trying to get in and finally had tc seek another abode. Since that timt the windows have been left open ano the ba.ts are just as much at home ai HAVE YOU CATARRH? Plenty of" Bin G»me. For an old settled state Arkansas has more game than any other. On the 6t. Francis river, where the canebrakes are tall and dense, the country seems alive -with deer and bear. They have a peculiar way of hunting in these brakes. They keep' dogs and horses specially trained for it. The dog's, perhaps twenty or thirty, are put in ' the brake, and the horses are trained to follow the dogs, and that ia what they will do at all hazard. As soon as the dogs take a trail and begin to bay the horses strike out pell mcll through woods, and brake, and swamp, jumping everything in their course, and plunging in a way that would terrify an English fox hunter. -The ridci has nothing to do, and that is sometimes more than enough.butto hold hii seat, lie must keep close to the dogs* for when the bear is brought to his bine! legs there is danger of losing three *>r four of the valuable anirrfals befor« the beast is killed. .It is a habit of almost all seamstresses to buy needles by the assorted package, "from 5 to 10" "being the accepted order. The consequence is that most work baskets are half full of opened and partially used cases wherein, the "10s," which are finer than needed for ordinary sewing, are left alone. A more sensible plan would seem to be to bay generally 7s, Ss and perhaps Os. as they are wanted.
