The result in Indiana in 1888 would have depended upon the rejected ballots in all probability if thelaw bad been in force then. The importance of drilling Republicans in voting and election officials on their duty cannot be overestimated. For instance on one board a discrepancy arose in the count. Without going over the tickets the Democratic board decided that the Republican Clerk was wrong and the next Republican ticket which was reached was not allowed to be counted by the Republican clerk in order that the D em- ocratic Clerk might catch up with him. No Republican on any board should have permitted this. It was wrong, illegal and a criminal offense. BAB CHATfERS AWAY. And Everybody Gladly JLlxtcns to her Bright Goiittip. The special school tax levy has been specially heavy for the past two years. Nearly one-third of the amount of tax paid into the county treasury is for special school purposes. It is 50 cents on the $100, while the total of all levies is but $1.68 on the $100. Things have been run on the high pressure system, and the people are being taxed to pay for accommodation that other generations will enjoy. This special school levy should be reduced, even though other school houses may be built this year.—[Pharos. In order that the people shall not so much feel the burden of taxation imposed by the last legislature the Pharos proposes to stop the public schools. This is truly a great scheme. DEFECTS IN TICKETS. The Logansport Journal says that i- the Republican candidate for Mayor f*jnthat city, Weldon .Webster, who s been declared defeated by eight b votes, was, in reality, elected, as one ilmndred tickets were thrown out by Jhe inspectors on the ground of infor- ^"mality, and that the larger part of ,them were Republican. For instance, Sin one precinct six of eight votes rejected were Republican, and in another, Jive of six were intended for the Republican candidate. Before another Selection Republican committees should- J-»ee that Republican voters are fully !hnstrueted in this important matter.— t^Indianapolis Journal. ;<-., The Journal's suggestion is a good ,one. While the official count showed •• tut fifty-five tickets thrown out—the "Journal's first figures having been es- ^timated on information from two or -three precincts—the principle is the e, and the facts make it evident that the only way to avoid giving the ^opposition opportunity to throw out "your ticket is to vote it absolutely ac- rdiDg to law. The law says: That a straight'ticket must be Stamped .upon the square. That where the intention of the hroter can .be determined, .the ticket anust be counted. ; That, where there is any distinguish- 'ing- mark upon the ticket it must be "'thrown out. ' Suppose the ticket is stamped upon £ihe rooster. The first and third requirement would compel the jpjection ;of the ticket. The Becond would permit of its' being Bunted. The same can be said Of a ticket stamped neither upon the arooster nor the square but above the square to the left of the rooster. Such tickets as these were counted in almost ^* every precinct in the city but in the precincts where they were not counted .they were largely ior Mr. Webster. There is both an excuse for throwing t- > them out and also/for counting tliem Mid where the rule is not uniform injustice results. , The correct thing to do is to instruct every Republican to rtamp fairly and squarely on the square and there will be no-excuse for rejecting the ballot. If for.., no other purpose a contest by Mr. Webster, Sritli the vote so close and the public interest aroused in it, would be the best method of instructing the public. Ihe publication of ;the ; defects, as appeared in court, would call attention to the most frequent errors. Of the 55 ballots, three were stamped >n all squares on the Republican and Prohibition ticket. The voters evi- lently were trying to vote \he Demo- Bratic ticket and stamped out everything they didn't want on the ticket. Five were voted without .any stamp. tever and four were stamped..on She line between" the Democratic and Bepublican tickets and were ap'par- sntly Republican tickets. The others '«re stamped on the eagle, "abov.e it id to one side of and a few had the jbostei similarly spotted. The right throw out ballots and to seal them ip uncounted is a dangerous one; and jtepublicans-should endeavor to 'present any fraud in elections by giving fo opportunity to pick flaws in the The P aros has no time to notice the flings of anonymous scribblers. The Pharos has no amunition to waste on dead ducks. The Pharos will pay some attention in due time to the record of a certain person who is emitting sulphurous effusions through a Sixth street medium. He can injure the Democratic party but little and help it still less. The above editorials in the Pharos indicate that that organ has been badly wounded. -With neither "time" nor "ammunition" "the Pharos will pay some attention" to the that has so stirred it up. enemy JTHERE is no q-oestion but that a majority of the ballots thrown out at the recent election because-of informalities in stamping, were meant to be cast for the Democratic candidate for mayor.—Pharos. It is probable that the Pharos in thus claiming greater ignorance for its party speaks advisedly. However that may be it is already apparent that a majority of the tickets which should have been counted were cast for Mr. Webster. THE Pharos continues to be dissatisfied with the Journal's city campaign. It is not surorising that it should be. NEW yoKK.Miir •!.. Special Correspondence. You are nothing to-day if you haven't a keen appreciation of flowers. You must appreciate the redness of one rose, the dead whiteness of another; you must be able to discriminate between violets and know to a dot the good points of an orchid. 1C you are going to make a. call on some woman of whom you are fond, you stop by the way, get a bunch of roses, a single orchid, or lily, whatever indeed happens to be. her favorite flower, and then, when you go in, you tell her how, long before the material body got there, she was in your heart, and you have brought her the flower that she would have chosen. A NEW THING AT WEDDINGS. If you go to a wedding, you carry as beautiful a bouquet a spossible, tied with long, satin ribbons, and in the loops are hidden your own visiting card, with your best wishes for the' bride written upon it. This you leave as you go out, if it is a house wedding; if it is a church wedding, witk no reception after, you hold your bouquet while you are in church, and 'then as you come out, drive rapidly to the house and have your footman leave it at the door. It's a pretty custom that works well iu two ways. You have the advantage of the bouquet, while you are on exhibition, so to say, and the bri'de knows that you remember her when you leave it behind you. Of course, .enormous sums are spent on these bridal bouquets, for very large roses, orchids or gardenias are used for Ibem, The roses are not made up stiffly, and are tied together with broad white ribbon, while yellow or a curious shade of green are given over to the other flowers. If your costume happens to be some peculiar color, with which none of these shades harmonize, then it is permitted you to have any ribbon you please, there being a prejudice, however, against the dark shades. proper position is when she is the chief personage, in a still way, at a funeral. Then the world regards her with complacency, -i haven't the slightest doubt, though, that she tells the spooks all about the examinations she has passed and how well up she is in Greek and Latin, and it may be that the future punishment of some people who don't vote the proper ticket will be to have close acquaintanceship with the superior young women in the unpleasant future booked tor them. Nothing more dreadful could come. THE INSIGNIA OF A DRY DINNER Have you gotten any dinner invitations with a bit of blue ribbon tied in one corner? That is the hostess's way of telling that there will be no wines served, and really after all it's better to inform you of this beforehand and to let you know that you will have to come down to Apollinaris water, not having even a glass of claret to take with your dinner, so give you an opportunity to decline. When will people understand the real meaning of temperance, and when will people comprehend that the taking away of a glass of light wine and the giving a tumbler of ice water will not reform a single drunkard and will make no end of dyspeptics? Have you ever lived with anybody who bad the dyspepsia, and didn't you feel that you hated your kind after a week of it? Well, this is apt to be the result if the nation is given over to ice—I mean melted ice in the shape of water. Highest of all in Leavening Power.—"KT. S.

Secretary Elaine's last letter on the Behring sea controversy makes it reasonably cetain that the whole subject will be submitted to arbitration. Lord Salisbury attempted'to have this, done on a false basis. Secretary Blaine "eomes back" at him with a counter proposition broadening the basis of arbitration and making it so manifestly more just and reasonable that the British government cannot refuse without putting itself in the position of opposing any fair arbitration whatever. The letter bears date April 14, nearly a month ago, and has not yet been replied to by the British government.—Indianapolis Journal. Too Bu*y to Work. Politicians who sit around corner groceries and whittle pine sticks, and groan about "the poor man's tin pail" and ' 'the robber tariff" are not the men who lift mortgages and build homes and bring- prosperity to the land. Without being impertinent there could be no better advice than to "shut your mouth, roll up your Sleeves, and go to work."—Inter Ocean: Tariff Pictures. In J880 the value of the manufactured products ol the United States was over $G,000,000,000. In 1890 it had increased to over $8,000,000,000. This shows what a decade of protection has done for our Industries. —New York Press.

NEW YORK, May 9.—The shipments of gold in the steamers which left this port for Europe were heavy. La Gas- cogne took out 51,400.000, "the Servia had $1,100,000, and other shipments made a total for. the day of about $4,000,000. The week's total was 87,291,000. • . - THE OMINOUS TUKQUO1S. Apropos of dark colors at a wedding being unlucky, I am reminded of an old superstition about the turquois and how I saw it verified last week. A beautiful turquois had been given to a young woman and she had sent it, with a number of other jewels, to the bank while she was to be a bird of .passage. She was taken very ill, months went by and the jewels were never required. A week ago she was able to go out in the sunshine and concluded to get some of her rings, that she might have the pleasure of looking at them. When the turquois was taken out of its box it had turned the most positive green imaginable. This would not have seemed strange if it had been an inferior stone, but it had been bought at a world famous shop, and an. enormous price had been given for it. You know the theory that when the possessor of a turquois is in ill-health that it becomes sick too, and loses its colors. Now, it has been given to a woman who is in perfect health and she is wearing it while everbody who knows about it is eagerly watching to see if the stone goes back to its heavenly hue. THE SUPERIOR YOUNG WOMAN. There are people who are above this sort of thing, and the superior young woman is one. Tell her a story like this and she glares at you until you wish she could be sentenced to imprisonment and hard labor until she outgrew her superiority, and became an ordinarily inferior person. Nothing suits her. If she goes out for a walk with you she refuses to look in the shop windows at the pretty things, she declines to see the nice babies or agreeable dogs, but she holds her head high up in the air and says: "I am out for rational exercise, and I propose to get it." Ask her to have some swgets and a glass of soda water, and she say,s "Thank you, no. But if you care for it I will wait while you get it." If you can imagine a woman made of flesh and blood, waiting while you drank soda, your imagination is extremely good. Tell her about a novel that is immensely amusing, offer it to her, and she puts up her lorgnette and calmly freezes you by saying, "Thank you. But after all,, from an intellectual standpoint, what will I gain from it?" You don't like to suggest it is just possible_a certain amount of pleasure may. come to her—for pleasure seems to her a.very frivolous and undesirable-thing. ... SHE-DOESN'T GO TO THE THEATRE, unless she can see something really improving and as far as can be dis- ,covered the only really improving things that have come to her are those nasty plays of Ibsen's. The superior young woman is an absolute incentive to sin, for she makes everybody hate her. As a young women, she is insufferable, as a. wife she makes her husband a pitiable- creature, and really the only time when she isio her GOTHAM HAS THE BLUES. New York is dull—inexpressibly, insufferably dull. A few dinner parties are heard of, more card parties, but the same moan is made everywhere, that the season has come to an end. Why in the world don't New York women follow the fashion of the Trench and English ones, when they drive to the park, stop their carriages, get out at some given spot, selected for the purpose, and. walk for a little while? There would be a marvelous exhibition of,pretty women and fine gowns. There would be an opportunity for people who know each other to have a little chat, and the monotonous drive round and round would cease. Women from all parts of the world live in New York, consequently there are many beautiful ones, and many well dressed ones, and this part of the Park would grow in time to be the living flower garden, that all the world would be eager to see. NEW YORK'S NEW SMART" GAME. Sometimes you get tired of playing Tie'a'rts, sometimes you get tired of playing whist, you don't often get tired of playing poker, but once in a while it is just as well to stop, and it has gotten to be the fad, since the smart women have taken to-literature, to get up an intellectual game. The men don't like it very much, because it causes them to think, and a man always resents this when a woman is about. The most amusing one is a game called "Queries." Questions are written on slips of paper, sufficient room being left for the answers. They are all folded, dropped into a basket, and as thoroughly mixed as a good punch. Each person draws one, open's and reads it, writes the answer, folds it again and drops it into the basket. Then whoever is good at deciphering strange handwritings is appointed to read out loud the result of the intellectual efforts of the assembly. There have been some good answers—usually they have been stolen—but if people can steal good things it's much wiser than giving original ones that are stupid. "What is love?" is funnily enough asked by a man and answered by a woman. SMART REPARTEE BY CLEVER PEOPLE I laughed over one answer given to this the other night. A bold masculine hand bad made dear that never- ending question—"What is love?"— and in a woman's handwriting was the answer, "The selfish desire on the part of a man to make one women unhappy." Another that was written by a women was, "When is a woman at her best?" and the answer, from ,a man said, "When she is like a salad, tender, young and well dressed." Somebody was idiot enought to. write "What is the best book read?" and somebody else was impertinent enough to answer, in a bad pun, "The Scarlet Letter." A young gentleman, with views as to theosophy wrote, in a very cramped hand, yDo you thinkBarnum went to Heaven?" and the answer, written by a women, was, "Why should he? He had the best show on earth." The thing that broke up the game 1 that night was the question, written by. another innocent young man, "Should women smoke?" and the answer, written by another man, was, "Not if she was my wife, or my sister, unless.she yearned for a horse whipping afterwards." This was discussed to such an extent that all intellectual efforts were given the go-by, and -"sassing back" became the order of the evening, until peace was brought about.by supper. However, knowing it is the vogue to be a little bit blue, and to.be decidedly analytical, and that it is fashionable, makes the try- keeping a drug shop. Could anything be more delightful than those lovely little boxes and jars, perfumes and powders, stamps to sell and telephones to hire, high prices—in fact, the combination found only in a drug shop. You know, really, if any young woman wanted to be counted a benefactor of her race, it would be proper for her to have a drug shop and tend peoole after the theory which, claims that the emotions can be governed by the various medicines. Just fancy the excitement that would be caused in conservative households. If a man came with some medicine for the dyspepsia, and you knew be and his wife hated each other, you would give him something that would cause him to adore her. and then, of course, she would grow very fond of him. If a fast young man came in to get some medicine to ward off the D. T.'s you could put something in it that would make him grow saint-like and thirst only after spiritual nourishment. If a young woma.n appeared whose manners were bad, whose hair was bleached, and who was perceptibly hand-painted, and she complained of a pain in her side, and wanted a plaster for it, you. could mix in it something warranted to teach her modesty, decency and good taste. I suppose this will never come, but just thinking about it a little shows the possibility of a drug shop with a women at the head of --it. I don't know that I hope it will come, because I might buy something some day, and they might put something in my medicine that would prevent my saying what I thought. SOME THINGS WE HOPE I'OR. . There are a good many things one hopes for in this world. It is to be hoped that the next Presidential campaign won't be one of personal abuse. It is to be hoped that no matter how good a figure a woman may have she won't wear the skirt of her gown absolutely skin tight. It is to be hoped that the people that write novels or translate them or steal them, will have good ones pro bono publico. It is to be hoped that if men must drink whiskey, which I doubt, that they will select a good quality, and not give their preference to a kind that announces its coming five yards ahead of the men. It is to be hoped that the coming man will be taught that his first duty in life is to look after women all the world over. It is to bechoped that the sunshine and the flowers and all the lovely long summer days are going to bring pleasure to lots of people. It is to be hoped that the people' who don't get the pleasure will be just as hopeful as they can, and think of the good time coming. It is to be hoped that clean streets, unmuzzled dogs fresh fruit- and cheap flowers will be conspicuous in New York by their presence. It is to be hoped that you know that the very best sort of hope for you and me and the other woman comes from BAB. The flames spread so rapidly ^it was impossible to save their horses. A dozen of them were owned by business men. Others were owned by Mr. Durand. The fire was probably of incendiary origin. Loss. $13.000. Avenged by Whisky. LOUISVILLE.
