Chicago Record: This Is the season ot the boarding house bath tub. In-the morning it smiles to greet the first gentle comer, who tills it -with water tiii-iiing on both faucets, and who sticks her foot into tire water as aforesaid, and shrieks amazingly, awl promises in liys torleal language, that she will quit tlie place mile.*? they connect rhe lake .with the furnace more frequently. And auou comes the late sleeper, and he pounds at the door and rattles at the knob, and goes away murmuring discontent at the third-floor old maid, why takes her summer vacation In the jior eelriin depths of the tub, TO me great illM-ess and malice OH all other.*. And. Inter, the time is noon, anil It !s ironing day, and the tub Is' exuberant because It undea-stamds full well that nil the boarders fire'clownstair.i in hot office.? or stuffy department store*, and that .although ; there Is mnca warm wherewith to steal the chill cf the Alaskan liquid ordinarily provided in board: lug, house boilera In summer, nobofly will be hojie until the shank of eveniug, when again the ice house will be con 'nected with the bath, tub.' And the evening comes and. grows apace, i'nd the bald, tut man from the parlor floor wallows a>ud shrieks nnd turns himself Into a sort of anatomized Ice crenm, nnd goes away lamenting. And as tfte night draws ,on there is gurgling nnd n frequency of thnt noise which is like that made by some persons Inserting soup into rtieir systems, nnd wet reproductions of the footsteps of the man Friday nre upon the painted floor. ?• And'fifM- off into the night the Inebriate boarder comes In after tlie manner of uls kind nnd charges upon'the .tub. nnd. there is much splashing, and the married man three floors above hears "and revJles, and so'do all persons between and bctwJxt—and then-there Is more ot it for an hour or so. Amcl nt ?, o'clock In the morning the boarding "ouse bathtub falls into a sort of tranquil, tubblsh desuetude, and a,pence settles doivn over all the boarding house—but there still Is not, nor will there ever be, any hot water, for of.such sort is the manner of the boarding house bath tub. IN THE NAME OF DECENCY. New York Tribune: There' was liopo that this would be a clean nnd decent campaign. Thorp, was no room for offensive personalities. There -were n unsavory scandals- to be bruited. There.would be no mud-throwing. The fighting would be'dorie by argument, on grounds ot'Tcnson. That was the hope There seems danger now that'll will prove to be vain.'Tin: Fopu!o-DemO- cratle Repudiations have already Introduced in-to the campaign an. element of •grass indecency, one of the most revolting in Hie history of American politic.*. Not content: with reckless bkuspheni- les of speech-, they luive transformed the most sacred nnd solemn emblems of Hie Chrlsrlan religion Into Insignia o-f- part}; warfare. Last weft me country was treii.led to tlie ."peetnele of n half- drunken, howling mob parading be : liijid nn uplifted Cro^s and Crown of Thorns. There is now promise thnt the pert'ornianee will be repented Innumerable Hum's, all over the land. The symbols of Our Lord's IMfwroji, which Christians regard with ycuenillon and others with respect, are l-o be boa-ne aJofl by i)olltical pamders, smotig torches and transparencies and pnrry banner,*. 1'lie Cross and Crown of Thorns nre lo be hung in every barrcum window, nnd Haunted at every mass meeting, aiifl in; added (o tlio pollfical carronn- Ist's stock-in-trade. Is it possible that such sacrilege can be tolerated in :i civilliwd—not 'lo say In Chrlsiiaii land? The Presidential erinilidale, whose .name and for whose •ulvniitage these things arc being done, Is himself a professing Christian, nnd an aiMlvc menibiM- of one of the lending .•linivhe,*. Is It possible that he can regard stu-h doseerarii'in of holy things ivivh any fueling o:l:er than horror and leteslnrion? • THEY PACEIKA RACE. Welch Won in the Match Pacing ' Race.

There were probably two hundred people out to see the maieh race between Pat G-nuiey'iS mare and C. W. Welch's uolt yesterday afternoou.
