" In a Japanese Garden" is the title of a really delightful paper by Lafcadio Hearn which appears in the Atlantic Monthly for July. Mr. Hearn gives a curious account of the methods of the Japanese landscape gardrier of the old regime, and his picture of the gardens in which sand and stones play perhaps a more Important part than (lowers and turf, will be new to most readers. The first paper in the magazine, by Eben Greenough Scott, is devoted to Gen McClellan, and is an impartial account of the part which he played during the war, and a Humrni/jg up of his personal characteristics, and the reasons for his successes and failures. -*-•#- Scrlbner's Magazine for July contains striking article about the "Poor in Chicago, by Jos. Kirkland (tho author of those very realistic novels of western life, " JCury, and " The McVeys".) Mr. Kirkland takes an optimistic view of the conditions of pov erty in that city, asserting that "how the other half lives in Chicago Is pretty much as it chooses," because sobriety and industry will give any able bodied man u comfortable living and a good chance for bis children. If men prefer the delights drink and crime, there are plenty of opportunities for both. Ho describes graphically the various foreign quarters in Chicago and -••- .—-••-—.- .v. u . o ..

The following special to the St. Louis Globe-Democrat explains itself: Chica go, June 10: The Boies people are as fertile in expedients as their soil is in corn. Today they sprung something new. The Algona quartette arrived from Iowa. It brought a brand new song—so new that it had not been pu in type. The music was a little strangi to Democratic ears, but it went. It was nothing else than "John Brown's Body." The quartette lined up atlowa headquarters and sang the song two or three times. Then it made the rounds of the other headquarters, and was en cored again and again. Here are the words, the composition of J. J. Ryan one of the singers: Clve UH Horace Boies, And we'll labor not In vain. The name of honest Horace Means a democratic gain. With Boies and low tarin We'll break the west in twain, As we go marching on, CHOKU8. Boies, Horace Boies, hallelujah, etc. Blaine's reciprocity, Transplants monarchical powerf The people's reciprocity IH the calling of the hour. Cleveland is its prophet, And of strength he is a tower; The west goes marching on. CHORUS. Boies, Horace Boles, hallelujah. Boles is a New Yorker, But adopted by the west— That garden spot of Eden, Where all people should be blest The farmers shout for Horace, And their strength are going to test. The west goes marching on. CHOHUS. Boies, Horace Boles, hallelujah. The quartette is comprised of J. Syan, James Taylor, B Onas. A. Cohenour, W. Haggard IHckB' Guesses For July. July will open very warm, with ih under showers about Ihe 2d and 3d. Jooler wealher will follow, reaching ill central -egions during tho 4th. The Jth is tho center of another warm spell, with Btorminess and some rain on tho next to that dale. From the 12lh to .Olh, may expect one of tho " healed orras" of tho summer. The 13th and 4th will likely be Ihe hottest of this >eriod, ending in thunder storms. Cooler up to the 10th, the regular reactionary day. From the 23d to 26th will also prove extremely warm with promise of rain, wind, and thunder about tho 24lh to 25th. These storm movements at regular times, perhaps violently, but rainfall will not be abund- nt. Month ends hot with summer torms prevailing.

The care by enermi cation of the cause is a thousand tames superior to the Keeleycure. "We set a quarantine about the domicile where scariet fever has appeared, and then license a man next door to infect the whole town with a virus which destroys the soul and body. To the honor of our physicans be it said that they are very careful to guard the health of the people by preventative measures, so far as their jurisdiction goes. And were the civil officers equally determined to stamp out the alcohol disease, society would soon be delivered from the death of the cup. But we are making progress in this direction—and the logic of events points toward such a consummation. Those who have been bitten by the serpent may not recover — but the serpent may be destroyed. In tropical lands poisonous serpents sting many people to death. Such lands could not be inhabited were there not a continuous war of extermination waged upon the serpents. Their haunts and lairs are destroyed, so that there is no cover under which to hide. This serpent of the bottle must be hunted and routed also. Destroy bis haunts and dens — give him no cover under which to hide — and in time we shall be rid of him, aud the people will be healed.

""* — . fidenttbat Bro. Hinchon Weare con- will accept, for if that is not his purpose what explanation is there for his sudden transformation from a Xew York Sun protectionist to a Cleveland man on Henry Watterson's platform? The only obstacle at present seems to be the candidacy of Judge Cook, who is brought out by theAmesTimes: Judge Cook of Webster City has been named as a possible condidate for congress on the democratic ticket in the Tenth district. The paper that makes this mention savs the Judge has been in congress from the Fifth Iowa district, and "made a good record." Yes, the judge made a good record at drawing the salary. He was a candidate and contested the election, the other fellow went to congress and the contest was not decided until congress had adjourned and it was then declared in the judge's favor and he drew the salary while the other fellow done the work. This does not. however, detract from the judged ability or qualifications, as he is justly considered one of the best railroad lawyers west of Chicago, and is a power within himself,for the C. & N. W., for which he is attorney. There are absolutely no flies on the strawberry blonde jud'ge, and if he should consent to be a candidate for congress in the Tenth, he would wake up the natives in a manner that would be truly alarming. He would turn the dogs of political war loose in a campaign, that would leave no doubt of the fact that he had been a candidate. pre- est function of medical science. The vention of disease, by removing the causes, will better conserve the public welfare^ than the most skilful art of combating it when developed. In compliance with this petition a bill was introduced, and is now pending in congress, which if carried, will not only bring the whole traffic in intoxicating liquors under government inspection- hut will go beyond the traffic, and inquire into the physical effect of their use upon the individual, and through the individual upon society and the state. The proposed act also contemplates inquiring info the effects of the use of opium, tobacco, and other narcotics, as will as the sale of impure and unwholesome food. Such inquiry will bring the effects of the use of alcohol, in moderate as well as immoderate quantities, into such a definite and indisputable demonstration as cannot be attained by private and individual investigstion. Inebriety is the active cause of from 80 to 80 per cent, of all idiocy, and of 15 to 50 per cent, of all insanity. The American Indians called whiskey fire water-the natives of Africa call it crazy water. Dr Day of Boston, in his late report on intemperance says s " The effecl of alcoholic indulgence s disease of the body. Sooner or later it must come. Disease of the mind is not f ar off. It may be delirium or some other form of insanity. The man is dying, and if not restrained, will soon be dead."
