THE JEVETTHra GAZETTE: .TUESDAY, JANUARY, 17 1888. Tp -rT:i- ; ii: Ss-nat.nrj w!)o purpose v"t iw fr,r Mr. Liim-ir ^'i! tint, f.jihp ttie trouble to ir,v»9tipatt» iuU>his decision? ami oinoiftl acts while Secretary of the Interior, they will discover tb'» t - he was the friend of the great railroad corporations and that those bodies are now seeking to have him confirmed. The Obicnfio Times, df Monday, a .paper that is friendly to Mr. Cleveland charges tfmt he recently removed a law clerk at the instance of the land grabbers and railroad fellows, aud he did it, too, for no reason In the world except thnt the law clerk was in the way of these men, who wished to get decisions different from what he was likely to make. The more that Lamar Is looked into and investigated, ths more patent it is that be is utterly unfit to be a judge of the Supreme court of the United Staten. THE MONARCHICAL governments of Europe have, without^ exception re fused to take part in the Paris exposition of next year. Thus they show their fear and contempt of popular government, Mr. Cleveland has urged -upon Congress the importance of hr.v- ing this country accept the invitatior of France, and we hope it will do as he recommends. France has had a hard time of it in establishing a liberal government, surrounded as it is by monarchies which seek to keep down liberty, and it should certainly be enconr- • aged by tlli country, which yet owes ' It a favor for its signal service on its behalf in the fievolution. And, besides, the United States are interested .in the establishment of ' republics throughout the world. Since evt-ry monarchy -has refused to take part and since every republic of earth, except the United States has agreed to do so, it ought to follow that our country, also, should take pa: t in this exhibit. NINETEEN YEARS ago (in March next) witnessed tne gathering together of the largest body of notable men that ever sat In Congress. It was the begin ning of Grant's first term and house and senate had many members who had served In the trying times of the war, and many, too, who had gained fame in battle. There is that that is peculiarly sad in the fact that of all those men, but two now remain In the Senate, viz., Sherman and Edmunds, aud not to exceed four in the House viz., Uox, Kelly and Holman, the fourth we do not recall. But there are four men in the Senate who were then in the HOUHO. A large number of those ~ men are dead; the others returned to private life. There were more than an hundred whose names were household. Blaire, Qarfield, Butler, Logan, Conkling, Schenck, Sumner, Schurz, Trumbull, Yates and, but we f rbear. Xerxes wept at the thought that every man in hi* army would be dead within a century. Alas! the lives of our public men stretch scarcely through a tithe ol that period. Those were famous old days. The halls rang with burst of elo- • quence. Men pitted against one another, made speeches that were echoed the land over. Scarcely an uneventful day passed during the next two years. It was the period just after the ad mis sionof the southern States and much important legislation had to be done. The Democrats were in a weak minority but they made up in energy what they lacked iu number. WHEN THERE is extreme of weather, as noticeably that of Sunday and Monday, it is necessarily widespread and its effects are worse at the South than here, because there there was no preparation for it. It will be understood, of course, that in the Southern States they do not get below zero weather, "but in most of those States twenty above zero is weather hard to be endured. '-The houses are not built to keep out cold, and the people are not dressed with sufficient warmth to resist it, and the result is there is great Buffering. Sve remember that in the winter of 1870-71 )lt was in January of 1871,) three men froze to death in Tampa Hay, Florida, Yet it is probable that the thermometer- does not get lower than 15 degrees above zero. We were at Key West, Florida, at the time and although there .the thermometer did not get lower than forty above zero, we su flared acutely. There was but one fire place in the hotel aud that "was so crowded about by the shivering guests that one could not get near it. The "Norther," which did not bring weather down to the freezing point, even, was as much discussed and as greatly dreaded as our own weather of Monday. Of course, In this latitude, extreme cold is expected, and every precaution is j taken to guard •gainst its dangers Men, when the cold is greatest, try to stay in-doors as much as possible, or when they go out are muffled and wrapped that the j^old does not reach their persons. But even up here where cold la expected, there are many families which are made uncomfortable during }ts stay, because they cannot heat their houses- sufficiently warm. And, too, where the firea are suffered to go down at -night, the inconvenience of arising from u warm bed and kindle the fire ia very great Yet it is true that it is possible to really enj'y celd weather. -Where one has good clothing and a warm house, he experiences no inconvenience whatsoever. Indeed, because ot the bracing nature of extreme cold weath- • or, all are in better health and in better spirits than when It is warm, i The phenomenon of extremes of weather ia not known. The cause is certainly direct because of the energy of the cold wave which runs out and stretches so far. i Florida'* Sulphur Springs. ; Old Jacksouviile, FlsL, citizens don't mind it much, but to the average northerner the sulphurous fame* arising; from tla baaiiu of the threa artesian ,-wella wlildb supply tbe city wi»h water are ul- cuoat overpowering. 80 highly Injpresf nated with sulphur la this water that Ui« fountain baaiug are thickly coated ' with tha 111 swelling atuS.—<N«\r York.Trib- BLUNT IN A BLANKET. Th» Jailed GUditonelte Walton the Cloth- ' ing lasne—Charges Afalnst Balfonr. DtrBLrx, Jan. 17.—The Gal way correspondent of The Evening Telwgraph, wire* that Wilfred Blunt was deprived of his ovsreoat Friday afternoon by tbs prison authorities, whereupon, flinging his prison garb aslda, h« demanded his own clothing. On this Doing refasod. Blunt gathered a blanket from his bed about him, and pacing up and down his cell, passed in this manner, the remainder of tbe (Iny.

He was staying, bs »ay«, at a country bouTO in the south of Kngiacil last September, whore he met Bil- four. who then made to him th« statement that his inte ition was to imprison men who could not endure the bardshi»i of prison life.

"After the Mltchellstown riot," Blunt continues, "I went to Ireland and warned Mr. Dillon and Mr. O'Brien of what Mr. Bairour bad said. Mr. Balfonr became aware that I had given snch warning, and to this .fact I ' attribute his virulence in the l*ortarnna. case.

A Unlrrnutl Chlneno Medicine of No Vain* to Caucasian*—A Strangle Article of Tj-afflo—A Prlmt's l)l«coTery — Tb« American Plant. One of the mysteries in the world of commerce in ginseng. If you epenk to aa ordinary iimu atwut ginseng, he win ask you whnt you ni-?nn. If you tell him that ginseng is tin article of commerce In which a traffic of about $1,000,000 a year is done by Americans, he will stare at you. If you tell him that It has been in certain places of the world worth its weight in gold, he will probably stare harder. If, In addition to this, you tell him that it Is a rest humbug, 'and that it is a very ordinary root of an American shrub, almost without a pnrticle of any but imaginary value, he will concede that it Is a strange article for traffic. . Finally, when he learns that the populace of a vast nation, high and low, consider it a curcnll, and that it enters into every medicine for every ailment In that nation, he will only understand the matter when he learns that it 13 the eccentric Chinese to whom this in reality unimportant. root Is valuable. ; WHAT IS IT OO0D FOB. Physicians and authorities of the ctvfl- tzcd world give the assurance that In medicinal properties the root Is almost Inert, at the most contains to a very mild extent tonic properties. None hut thet singular and rice eating Celestial can feel any effects from the use of it; but among the Chinamen of this country there is- almost no consumption. The root is bought here by resident Chinamen for homo export. They do not use it themselves, however, and inquiry from these Celestial worthies has seldom brought out any satisfactory statements as -to what ginseng Is good for. The belief among the home Chinese is mostly superstition. It Is sort of fetish; its powers are supposed to be occult, of the nature.of miigic. It ia believed to have a mysterious and- powerful effect on the fccundative powers and to be infallible in cases of barrenness. This is its primary Importance, aud occasionally Caucasians have attempted to test its value in this direction, but satisfactory results are wanting. In China the belief is still implicit, and besides the vast amount grown in that country, It receives all that America can supply, which Is on the average 42.'i,000 pounds a year. Tha American wholesale price is now $3.25 a pound. Ginseng, In China, is a government monopoly, and Professor Lockhart, of London, Is the authority for the statement' that it is sold to privileged dealers by tha imperial government of China at its weight in gold. This is denied by some American dealers. But the value is still high. There are certain single roots, especially of certain shapes, very rare, which bring from $25 to (400, and are only possessed by the wealthy class—mandarins and others. • •*" Ginseng from Manchuria was once valued above all other varieties, and imperial edict prohibited its collection, because the enormous export was reducing it to scarcity. Ginseng in this country 3 limited. . Only 400,000 or 500,000 pounds of it can bo collected in one year. Its price here is enormous, and even ludicrous, when the worthlessuess of the article is considered. Of the root, although light, it only requires a hatful to make a pound. And yet the wholesale price here is slowly, but always steadily, rising, and the ridiculous' fact is before us that the price of tills futile drug, used by nobody in this country, will In time become greater than that of opium itself, as the gradual but sure process of its extermination in America continues. PATHF.IS PASTODX'S DISCQVEBY. It happened that In 1709, a Jewish priest, one Father F. Fastoux, was diligently employed in making a map of Tar- tary. During this labor ho saw the plant growing In Its mystic laud, four leagues awajr from the kingdom of Corea, in the spot where a Tartar village Inyr The Tartars were full of the praise of the fabulous ginseng and its wonderful powers. Good Father Fastoux became an enthusiast also. He had missionary friends on the other side of the world In Canada. To these the priest sent some of the root and an extolment of its properties as a cure for all human Ills. Back In due time came the rsply that the same root was well known to the Canada priests and In full use by the Indians. The American ginseng perhaps differs slightly from the Chinese, for there ore five or six varieties of the root, but it possesses all the external attributes of the celestial variety. The ginseng was sent -at that time to Europe, and was then first introduced to the civilized world; even at that date, in the lasteentnry, European savants rudely shattered the illusion as to the root, and pronouuced It almost, inert as a drug. This did not affect its value to the Mongol races. Long afterward, as it was discovered over the regions of North America, the idea of Its export arose. It grows about the wild lands and farms of tha northwest and northeast. As cultivation, ruins Us flavor It -cannot be made a regular Industry, either in growth or collet tion. The biggest yield of all was 1801, when the export almost doubled; 1860 had seen a ginseng collecting craze/like agold. fever, in the lake states, where the people left their homes, camped for weeks in the hills, raised the export of ginseng to 638,000 pounds—the highest export ever made —and rooted out the plant so that it has been scarce ever since.—Cor. • St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
