Till MONDAY, JAITTIARY 9, 1883. razette A M M : BT CARRIER. .ONDAY. JAN. fl. JARLISLK wits afraid to appoln .ebel general Wheeler chairman o .e committee on military affairs lea it troublously affect the people of the north, and ao he appointed Dick Town shend, a man loyal at all times, but on who had never bsen a soldier. Ye Wheeler could have done no harm, be cause his reports must be carefully revised and acted upon by the House an( the Senate, should any of them ge through the House. How about Lam ar? Lamar said in a speech in th United States Senate just before he re tired from that body that no man should call Jeff Davis traitor in hi presence. Lamar says that secession i right. Lamar endorses Jo Blackburn in his boast that he purposes wiping al war legislation from the statute book of the nation. Lamar is a million folc more dangerous than a thousanc Wheelers. And yet it does look to* ui as though the "courtesy of the Senate 1 will make Lamar a supreme cour Judge. EVERT QKNEYAL who has won a place in history realized the value and importance of keeping his soldiers in heart, and felt corresponding necessity of terrorizing the enemy. It w.ouk not have been possible for Wellington' forces to have overcome the Napol eonlc forces at Waterloo, but previous disastrous campaign in Kus sia which showed that the Corsican was not invulnerable,and the subsequent ab dlcatlon and sojourn at Elba. So th "vast Persian army, the largest tha ever gathered under a single learerebi might have made good the boast of it leader.had It not been for the herolcjpur pose of Leonidaa to die with his brav three hundred at the Pass of Thermo pylae. To leave warlike examples anc come down to plain matter of fac events and doings-. Go to any cities o the south, whose people are wrappec • up in the memories of the past, an you will learn that the people have los heart. They think they have tried anc they know they have failed. So mos ' grows upon its houses and decay sets i: upon its people. Whether with an arm or in civil life, to conquer one must b In good courage; to be conquered, on mnst have lost heart. Just as soon a Grant went east, the fame of his west era victories had preceded him, am Lee's army that had hitherto responde bravely to the long.roll, lost heart o courage and said, "As the brave armie of the west yielded to his invincible arms, so, too, we shall fall." There i nothing BO da*ngerous to any communi ty or people as despondency. The Uaven, in Old Curiosity Shop had oni oft repeated cry, "Never say die which if adopted and made the one chief and unfailing motto of a des pairing people, might snatch it from impending ruin, or resurrect it from the death ;of yielded-up aspirations Bring these self-evident truths to our own region. Our early settlers in Whileside found, it la true, a goodly region; but they found,'also, heat in summer and cold in winter; they found as well, that transportation was a well- nigh Impossible thing, and that whal they grew must be consumed mainly at home. In no sense cast down ol their surroundings they applied themselves to endeavor to better their condition. As years passed by and they naw railroads enter this and that city and village and pass them by, they still lived in the future and saw that which has come to pass., viz., raiiraod communication with all the outside world. Still time rolled by, and after the railroads came they saw discrimination in favor of other towns, and still they persevered, looking to time • - to vindicate them and do them justice. The inter-State commerce bill placed all places upon a level. While, it is true that up to this time,.our people have displayed hut little collective energy, they have shown an immense amount of individual endeavor; for all that Is here of property and wealth, is due to the taithful, honest, persistent steady, "never-say-die" pluck of our people. At this time we are in a transition state,—passing from individual to collective endeavor. We have been a city in name, but in name only. We " are not a city until we mass, together to accomplish results.' The upper dam movement is evidence that we' are passing from villagehood to cltyhood*. We would not be understood as claiming that at all times and seasons, our people have been in fullest hear,t; sometimes a temporary depression might cause some uneasiness and beget forebodings, but this we insist, that heart of faith has not been lost, and that from the beginning growth has been upward;—from the beginning there has been confidence in the future There ia greater confidence today than ever. Confidence begets success. The consciousness of victories won ia as- suranca of victories that shall be won. Given confidence born of victory and the rest is easy. Man is great; all he needs to prove it, is inner assurance of this knowledge. That upper dam constructed by the combined capital of Sterling la but the nucleus about which shall gather a succession of benefits that shall run o'nt and prove benefit and blessing to all our people and give fullest confirmation of all thatia claimed ia thla article, viz., that heart of ^courageinsures victory and victories. And while neighboring towns shall sit idly by and say "Sterling is undertaking too much," and "Sterling will not get there," our people will go right along inspirited by what has be«n done, and soon will bo »o far ahead of their nelgbboro of lat« corresponding chances, that era long it will b« asked wonderin«ly, "Ia it possible that at one time, Sterling wua lew eveu than this pliw* and that r KN TIIK pyramids were in hifhly polished marble, they wer pronotincpd infinitely lovely; tjut notli ing,—marble, alabaster, porphyry, o any other btone can equal in finish an beauty, blocks of clean, clear ice in building.

He at firs declined to pay. but a night in the lock up caused him to change his mind. —One night last week the police un earthed a case of moral turpitude, th guilty parties both being married. Th. male offender is a young man who ought to be ashamed to scandalize hi name after that fashion. It is to be hoped that he will behave himself in the future; as for the woman, that is scarcely to be expected. —Frank O'Nell is a well-to-do far mer living in Hahnaman.

But what we would mention more particularly is that the Wlnneba go ditch goes through his farm, and lately it has been found that large trees are in the soil, the waters of the big ditclrwashlng them out. They are valueless, however, as they drop to pieces when exposed to the air. - Principal Barrett is getting along very nicely indeed with his night school The class is composed of sensible young men who appreciate the importance of study, and it is making very ;ood progress, indeed. Teachers of public schools have many pupils who do not like school, or study; but Mr. Barrett has the good fortune to teach k class that without a single exception is studious, earliest and progressive. —Following are the names of the officers of Select Knights, A. O. U. W. nstalled by installing officer W. N. Harrison Saturday night: A. Blcbt- myer commander; Geo Deyoe vice commander; J. D. Gray lieutenant commander; F. F. Sheldon recorder; M.

Shirley alternate. —It is the purpose of the Odd Fel- OWB, at some time, to erect a chapel in he cemetery grounds. This is a right tep. And when it is built, the services hould be held therein (we mean what are called the services at the grave) and ihe bereaved ones, after they are over, >e permitted to go home, leaving the nterment in the bands of the sexton. At Utlca, New York, is a "palace of roses"—a beautitul chapel. There, in the winter, these burial services arc held and the deceased is then taken to a great vault, where it remains until Spring, when it receives nal interment. It is a beautiful, po- tic conception, that of having the dead eft by its friends surrounded by uch wealth of flowers. The cus- .om of requiring the 7 immediate rel- tives to stand through a somewhat engthy service at the grave and worse than all to have to hear the old soda fall upon the coflln of the oved is the refinement of cruelty". With a chapel out there, there worfld e protection in inclement weather, ud the Bervices held therein, the sor- owlng ones might return immediately, bu» being sp»red the harrowing spectacle of seeing their loved laid away in the ground.

Amlwrfrrlll. Tho Provincetown, Mass., whalemen have boon unusually sccccssfnl in thci voyages within thn last fifteen or twenty years, not only In the amount of oil obtained but in that of ambergris." Amber grig la a peculiar secretion found in a dia -ased whale, and is worth its weight In gold. It la not a buoyant article, and 1 only obtained by killing*the whale, or the whale's (lying and drifting ashore, when the lump (if ambergris washes upon thi beach after the carcass is decomposed The ambergris (or sick) whales are usually found near the land, and when th stuff Is picked up on ahure the car cass of a dead wha|e Is nsnalT somewhere In the vicinity. When an apparently healthy whale la killed, and on examination appears to have very little oil, a search for ambergris is made. In appearance it Is a dark gray, sticky Bub- Btance, and very vile smelling. It fa principally nsed In making perfumes, to "set" the odor, and as a refiner. It IB related that one afternoon, years ago, the schooner Gage Phillips, o Provlncetown, was drifting on the whal Ing grounds, when the man on lookou reported that a small, peculiar looking substance was floating off the port quarter It was taken on dock and pronounced to bo Boms pccllar kind of West Indian gum. After being kicked around the deck for some days it was thrown carelessly Into the stern boat. The Phillip) fell In with another whaler, and the crews exchangee TlBits. The visiting captain noticed the "gum," declared it was ambergris anc revealed its value. It was taken care of and when the vessel arrived home the sale of that lump of "gum" added $6,000 to the general stock of the voyage. Another captain of a merchant vessel lying at anehor off one of the Islands In the West Indies, discovered a lump as large as his two fists In the possession o: a negro, who sold It to the captain for one flannel shirt and an old pair of pontaloons It was Bold in the states for $500. A whaling crew having secured and killed a whale, cut It in two and fround a dark gray mass about the size of a half barrel. In the effort to get it on deck the leadlike mass shot downward Into the fathomless sea, and at least $50,000 slipped neatly away, leaving a mad captain and a mac crew. There are living In Provlncetown many retired whalers who have made fortunes in the find of ambergris, am seldom a season passes without some o her captains returning wealthy men.— Chicago Times. Dark Waters of Snperlor. How cold the dark water of Lake Su perior IB I One evening when we were steaming across that lake I asked the mate what was done when a man fel overboard. He coolly replied: '-Noth Ing." "Why?" I asked, astonished at his heartlessncss. "The water of Lake Superior Is so cole that a man cannot live in It during th< time It takes to stop a rapidly moving vessel and lower a boat," he replied Then he added: "I have sailed on this lake for twenty years. During that time I have known many men to fall off ves eels. I know of one man only who escaped death. He was saved by a scratch The others were apparently killed by the shock produced by falling Into such cole water." Ho picked up an empty can to which a long Btring was attached and cast It overboard. The can skipped from the crest of one wave to that of another for an Instant, then dipped and filled. 'The hoary headed mate drew the 1 full can up and handed It to me, saying: "Take a drink of that, and then you say whai you think of your chances of swimming In Lake Superior for ten or fifteen minutes." I drank deeply, and It was aa though liquid ice flowed down my throat, "It IB alleged," the mate said, "that this lake never gives up Its dead, that to be drowned In Lake Superior Is to be buried for all time. I do not know whether this Is true or not. but I do know that ] have never seen a a corpse floating on the lake." I wonder If that is true? I doubtec It, but I could find no sailor who had ever seen a dead body floating on the lake.— Frank Wilkeson In New York Times. Selling Goods by Weight. It Is bnt a question of a Very short time In my belief when the sale of articles oi food and other materials now disposed ol by "dry measure" and by "count" will be conducted entirely by weight. The Coal exchange has abolished the bushel, and aU transactions In fuel both with receivers and with the consumer are by the ton. Wheat Is handled In the elevators now by the hundred weight Instead of the bushel. The produce men are adopting the weight system, and the retailers are following them. Potatoes and onions are sold by the pound in many groceries now Instead of by the measure. Eggs should be sold by weight, as the dozen plan Is not satisfactory. There Is a tendency to the adoption of the metrical system In other lines, and the young men of today will Bee the present irregular measurement of Inches, teet, yards, furlongs and miles succeeded t>y the less confttslng system In use In (Trance.—Globe-Democrat. A Cheap Telephone. To make a serviceable telephone from one house to another only requires enough wire and two cigar boxes. First select four boxes, and make a hole half In inch n diameter in the center of the bottom of iach, and then place one in each of the houses you wish to connect; then get five xrands iof common Iron stovepipe wire, nake a loop In one and put It through the lole In your cigar box and fasten it with i nail; then draw it) tight to the other box, supporting It when necessary with a stout cord. You can easily run your line into the louse by boring a hole through the glass. Support your boxes with., slats nailed across the window, and your telephone Is complete. The writer has-one that Is 200 rards long, and cost forty-five cents, that rill carry music when the organ IB play- ug thirty feet away in another room.— Jemoreat's Monthly. KnglUh Father and Spani.h Mother. AnEngllah father has light hair and line eyes; a Spanish mother black locks an iris dark as night, and a full, olive colored southern complexion. Clearly the hildren may differ indefinitely in appear- nce, some with dark eyes, some with Ighter: some as men may grow dark >rown beards, and some may. have black rhiskers and hazel eyes and clear, half Spanish, dusky skin. One may have ravy hair like the mother, yet almost as Ight In hue as the father's; another may lave it rather straight, but dark. Simt- arly, too, with the features. The fore- lead and chin ma.y resemble the father, nd nose and mouth may rather approximate to the maternal pattern. So, at least, we often say In onr folly; nt, In reality, when we come to examine losely we see that no single feature even we* everything absolutely to one parent nly. Those dark eyes may Indeed be punish In color, with a gleam of bull fighting In their cruel depths; bnt they are set In the head after an English pat- «rn and have an English solidity of Phll- stlne hardness. That pretty little nosa may have much of the father in the bridge .nd the tip, bnt don't yon catch faint ilnta of the mother, too, In the quivering •ooatrU and the expanded wings?

"I have IIPPH employed nt the White House sinre 180-1," said CoL W. II. Crook ttieothet day. "When I cnme here Mr Lincoln was president, and I remembei his children well. Robert was then a young ninn, and only visited tho Whiti House occasionally. He was a cnptnin o: voluntwrs on Gen. Grant'H HtniT. Tad the younucrson, was his father's Idol, am he was perfectly wrapped up in tho boy I Iwlieve the little fellow- had more In fluence with his father tlmn his whole ad ministration. As I remcrnlx-r him best he was a boy of about tt or 10 years of age unusually bright, and of a very inquirinf disposition. Ho had a heart like a woman's, and was always doing Borne good deed. TAD A3 1.IRUTEMAKT. I accompanied tho president on his memorable, visit to tho front at Petersburg. Tad wont with his father, who treated him us a companion, and the bo 1 had a flno time. Ho wanted to see every thing that was to be seen, and I guess he saw It all, for he was Very observant The military was everything in those days, nnd Tnd was much interested In sol diers. To be a soldier was tho height o his ambition. He had a regular arm lieutenant's uniform, with epaulets anu everything, and he would often dress u In it and strut about In high feather. H was fond of private theatricals and had k. room In the White House fitted tip as a minaturo theatre. He used to take abou as much pleasure in driving a pair o goats as in anything else. His father' death almost broke his heart. He die< while in Europe with his mother. Hla older brother, Robert, I remember as a genial, manly fellow, without any .snob bish ways. "During President Johnson's administration the White House was always fu] of children, although but oho was his own child. Mr. Johnson had, however, three other children. Ills eldest son, Robert acted lor a good while as his father's prl vate secretary. His two daughters wer Mrs. Patterson nnd Mrs. Stover, the latter a widow. Both hod children, and these with Andrew Johnson, Jr., were knowi as the White House children. There wer Andrew Johnson, Jr., a boy about 11 o 12 years of age; Hello Patterson, about 9 .Andrew Patterson, 7; Llille Stover, 13 Sarah Stover, 9, and Andrew Stover ; about 7. They had a targe circle s of youni 1 friends, and many a good time tho littl : ones had in the big rooms of the White I House. Robert Johnson died after hi i father returned to Tennessee. Andrew 'Jr., died after his father, while stil young. He never enga^-xl actively in nn business. Andrew Patterson is now en gaged in n largo manufacturing""business .In Tennessee.

Sarah Stover is dead, and Andrew i Stover is an invalid living in~Tennessee Mrs. Stover is dead, but Mrs. Patterson the other daughter of the president live In Tennessee. "Tho Grant children come next," con ttnued Col. Crook. "There were Fred, | Ulysses, commonly called 'Buck,' Nelll nnd Jesse. Their history Is familar b everybody. THE HAYES CHILDREN. "Tho Hayes children come next. Burch ard Hayes was tho oldest. He did no live in the White House, and only visiteu I there occasionally, so 1 didn't see very much of l.lm. Webb Hayc« cnme next aud then Rutherford B. Hayes. They were all three good, square, ovcryda boys, with no nonsense about them and apparently, not a 1)it stuck up because their father was president. Hutherfon was away at school a good deal of the time while his father occupied the White House. I saw u good deal of Webb Hayes, who attended to much of his father's business, and must say he was a good, square, honest fellow, with many § admirable qualities. Fannie and Scoti Hayes were the little ones of the family Dannie was a sweet little schoolgirl, with • many of her mother'a attractive qualities Scott was a hnruin Bcarum little fellow, brimming over with animal spirits. ' Hi heart was in the right place, and I have ,-no doubt he will'make a flno man. ! "Tho Garfleld boys were 'holy terrors to speak slangily, but everybody liked them. They made things lively about th« White House and had a mighty good time. The-children were Harry, Jim, Molly, Abraham, and Irving. Harry and Jim wen near of an ago, and they owned the place. The president was Just like a boy himseli when he laid aside business, and Joined In their games with great pleasure. The boys were up to all kinds of tricks and pranks, and many were the practical Jokes played on those about tho house. The room in the northeastern corner of tin house, which is now the t?legraph room, was then used as a school room. Dr. Hawkes was the tntor. The BOH of Col. Rockwell, who was commissioner of public buildings and grounds, went to school with the Garfleld children. "President Arthur had but two children, Alan and Nellie. Nellie was a favorite name for the White House children. There were Nellie Grant and Nellie Arthur. The latter was a pleasant faced little schoolgirl while she lived at the White House. Alan Arthur was a student at Princeton, but came to Washington quite frequently.—Ha -was rather reserved In manner, bnt was quite a good fellow when you once knew him well. That ends the list, as far as my memory goes.—New York Times. Amid Uunatural Excitement. Evidence accumulated, demonstrates Deyond cavil or doubt, that unnatural excitement, whether it be fear, anger, Jeal- )usy, or anything else, ruins mind and >ody with a poison, for which there is no ibsolute antidote. It brings ruin to the >ody more than any other cause, and ruin 0 the nerves and brain more thau every other cause combined. The point I make, and wish to be remembered, Is that unnatural excitement is the human soul's rreatest foe. It takes the blood out of he body, the life out of the blood, and the oy out of the life. It withers the young orm of symmetry and beauty into the >endlng, shapeless form of premature age. It plows its furrows and insidiously and deeply works its wrinkles upon the face and brow of life's youth and prime, where naught but smiles should live and reigu. It invades the temple of strength md paralyzes her fair garden called the brain. It dries up her streams from the greater to the lesser nerves. It cuts the inews of her strength aud changes the xxly temple into a pest house of disease, and closes tho drama of life's great tais- ake, as it wraps the unhappy wreck In eath's charitable mantle of darkness and Hence. Fight down every phase of unnatural xcitement, control yourself In all things. Jauiah from your nature Jealousy and iate, subdue your unger and every form f unnatural excitement, cultivate a weet disposition, a cheerful nature, and piritof love and faith. Your life will be one of joy, sickness will not trouble ou, sorrow seldom visit your home, your fe will be one of peace and Joy, and your peace and Joy will be the peace and Joy f others.
