THE EVEimTG GAZETTE: THURSDAY, JAKUAHY ,9 1888. Evening Gazette. TK BMW t O rt«. I BT OJLBRIKB. THUBSDAY. JAN. 19. 18S8. THE HOTEL de Invalldes Is a monument to Napoleon's care for his soldiers. Americans with pride claim that our government has been more generous to Its soldiers than any other nation upon earth. When the facts and merits are all considered, the statement Is doubtful. In the flrst place, our soldiers were exposed to » moat unhealthy climate, secondly, they were largely made up of men accustomed to live comfortably. European armies • lire largely made np of men whose expense of living is email indeed as compared with the rank and file of our army during the war. Understanding these two statements, we add this statement:. Not a man came out of our army after a twelve months' ser- "vlce as good a man physically as when he entered it. The miasmas of southern swamps, the foal breath of prisons, the chocks of bullets, the rigors of enforced marches, exposure to all kinds of weather, often ill fed and ill-clad, some one or more of all these causes made sad inroads upon the physical strength of our brave soldiers. When they came home they husbanded their strength, and have done all tha f . care can do to continue life; but now that . most have come to middle age, and many have passed it, the four years of war are telllrg upon them as they never told before. Become sufficiently well acquainted with any of these soldiers to enquire into their health, and you will scarcely find one that is not rheumatic, or neuralgic, or suffering from catarrhal, or bronchial, or lung troubles, or from recurrences of dread dysentery, or 'from the twinges of old bullet courses, or from some other cause. Host of them accustomed to spend In living three or four times what the soldiers of Europe do in private life, we insist that France with Its pensions and its institution''named at the head of this article, or Englaiid, or Germany, or any other country of the old world is fully equal to ours in .generosity. But the soldiers ot the old world did not suffer from climatic assaults as ours; their wara were of brief duration; and, hence, leaving the army they are better able, physically to support themselves than our soldiers. It is a sad and painful thought, yet one that is sustained by the evidence of competent authority, that but few of our old soldiers are really healthy men and each year adds to the number of Invalids and to the mortality liat. It is commouly agreed that in time^all the Uuion soldiers will be pensioned. Yes, but in time ti.e man would have cured his horse of eating; If the animal hadn't died, he'd have been sure to do it. What's the use of waiting until the soldiers are dead to pension them? The one hundred million surplus might be applied to tha soldiers of the Union army of the late war, and while thus paying a tribute to the patriotism of these men and a just debt for the sufferings they have undergone and are daily undergoing, it will at the same time result in keeping this surplus constantly in. circulation all over the country. There is not one of these soldiers taut that would gladly forego a pension provided he could be placed in health where he was before he responded to the call to arms. a party that certainly by common agreement of those present -was one of the most delightful they ever attended in their lives. —A four-months-old child of Mr. and Mrs. James Pfunstein died yesterday afternoon. They took the remains to Turner Junction for burial, today. ' —The Geographical Sociable at the Fourth St M. E. church last night was attended by quite a goodly number of people, and all greatly enjoyed caslon. —Why should Judge Bailey take such sudden and deep interest in judicial matters in this district? "Better late than never,"but, of course.better never late. Can it be true that he is after Judge Sheldon's place and that he thinks he can manage that nomination better, if the successor to Judge Eustace Is postponed until June. He went over to Europe last year when Judge Eustace was too sick to preside, and he did not then try to secure us a j«dge; now he finds us one, away in advance of the time. When toe GAZETTE and other papers said at the time of his go- Ing to Europe, that he ought not to do 7 BO, without as least providing judges to hold terms in his absence, he got wrathy and spoke of us as "irresponsible, editors." All of the papers he so denominated have editors who have good memories. Now he does just what they asked him courteously to do. If Judge Bailey wishes to succeed Judge Sheldon, let him do it; but it does not comport with the dignity of his office to interfere In the matter of Judge Eustace's successor. He has for several years given this district but little of his time; why|his]zeal|n >w ? his burning desire to provide the several counties with a temporary Judge that there be seemingly no necessity for an election until a supreme court judge is chosen ? —Last night witnessed another leap- year-party, given in Masonic Temple hall. Effort was made by the GAZETTE to procure the names of the escorts and the young gentlemen who attended, bat the number was so large that the task of securing all was impossible; hence, rather than misa any, we were compelled to give over toe attempt. The reception committee were Misses Annie Sheridan, Nellie Mooney and Kittle Hodgens. .The floor committee consisted of Misses Lizzie Williams, ' Maria Grogan, Maggie Hodgena andd Annie Buurke. Besides the very large number from Sterling, there were couples present from Eixoii, Morrison, 8t Louis, Bock Island, Clinton and Chicago. The invitations were gotten up in very handsome style, the dance card forming part of It 0 Prof. Buck and Abbott's orchestra furnished the music, and very creditable it was, too. Dancing began at 9 o'clock with a grand march. At midnight the ladies escorted the gentlemen to I^itzgerald's, where all were well served with a very elegant supper. Returning to the hall, dancing was resumed and kept up un til 8 o'clock. The floor in excellent shape, the hall roomy, despite the large attendance, together with the excellent music made dancing a pleasure Indeed, and the votaries of Terpsichore scarcely gav^a»ed to the time, so rapidly did it fly. It was with a regretful ilgh that the company separated to go to their several homes. The young ladles were fully equal to the occasion. Their arrangments were highly creditable and were carr.ed out to the letter. The young gentlemen for the time converted into younj? ladles acted their parts with seemly modesty, while the youag ladies excelled young gentlemen when at their best In their careful attention to the wants of the escorted. They saw that they were relieved of their wrappings; also that they were carefully protected from the cold when they started home. The young laaiea called for them at their houses and escorted them home when the party broke up. The young men can well profit by the extreme courtesy of the fair one*, when ordinary customs are returned and it is their turn to be escorts and take charge of parties.

Thta singular state of affairs has caused more petty, trouble In Alaska between the whites and Indiana than any other source I can now recall. Most of the white men there are of that kind who hate to see a woman "stick her jaw in," especially to undo a good bargain that they thought was past recalling.

Large numbers of them, who have been at work on the plantations, have refused to obey their masters and have attempted to rtm away. This uprising among a cruelly used people has greatly alarmed the planters, who have called for police protection. In the province of San Paulo the slaves have taken to the woods and the soldiers have found It impossible to capture them. The brutality practiced upon the Brazilian slaves Is something terrible to think of. According to the accounts, those of the rebellious slaves who were captured were wounded with shot, beaten on the bare back with whips and hung up by the thumbs. The slaves did no Injury to property, and contented themselves with ° trying to escape. There (a a strong antislavery feeling among the thinking people In Rio Janeiro, and an effort is being made to have the government emancipate these people. The soldiers, It Is said, are reluctant about hunting the slaves down, and have In many instances- helped them to escape. According to the feeling now, it will not beMong before the government of Brazil will be compelled to emancipate • the slaves.—Deraorest'a Monthly. CONDENSED NEWS.

Bad Two nirds In tho Hand. . KANSAS Crrr, Ma, Jan. 18.—A very romantic story Is being circulated about the city. It Is said that Miss Lizzie Melville, a beautiful young lady living with Mrs. Burns, at Uecond and Locust street*, and who was married to Harry Walkar a few days ago, had been carried away by her father during her husband's absence and placed in a convent in California. Lizzie was young and capricious, and accepted two offers of marriage and bad two weddings set for the same dny. Two licenses were Issned .and two bands and two suppers engaged. There was but one wedding, one supper, one happy man, and one man left Now the question Is whether It is better to be married and have no wife or not to be married at all...

Most well informed peoiSiPare doubtless ' aware that the globe on which they live Is a great ball of magnetism, but comparatively few have an adequate idea of th« influence this property is continually exerting on all sides, that many common but inexplicable phenomena can be traced directly to this.source. Statistics go to show that in the matter of steel rails, as many as thirteen will become crystallzcd and break where they go to make up a railroad track running fast and west, before one of those on a north and south track Is similarly affected. This is entirely due to the magnetism generated by friction, and the..fact that the polarity of the magnetic current is In the former instance restated In the headlong rush of the train, whereas in the latter case it Is undisturbed. Another strange effect of this peculiar and occult force is that exerted on tha watches of train men.' .A timepiece carried by the conductor running a train twenty miles an hour, however accurate It may be, will, If the speed of the train is increased to, say, fifty miles, become useless until regulated. The magnetism generated by the flight of a train may be said to be in proportion to the speed with which it is propelled, and the delicate parts of a watch, numbering all the way from 400 to 1,000 pieces, and peculiarly susceptible to this influence by reason of the hammering and polishing they have received, are not slow to feel the effect—Boston Budget.

' He ta unusually courteous and accommodating for a man whore hands ore constantly full of correspondence and who simultaneously answers questions on every known subject On entering the office through a private door one is confronted with the workshop and museum proper. A talk with Mr. Jones brings out some interesting Information. It becomes apparent at once that the Inquiry office Is no place for a person with weak nerves, A package without an address la received. It Is opened._A cotton ball is exposed to view which Is folded layer on layer In the most direful way.

Live turtles complete the list of nerve shattering things ••which the employes have to dispose of. Dynamite carefully packed in cotton, powder In flasks, gun implements of all kinds and fishing outflta are received dally. TOV1NO WITH DTNAJHITK. One would think that toying with dynamite was sufficient to cause all sorts of tremors and fears to agitate a person, but the examiners have not the haunted look of men In perpetual fear. To hear one say In a Jolly manner: "Ah, here's an earthquake," on opening a package containing dynamite is an ordinary thing. Peaceful things are, of course, plentiful. Samples of every known fabric to delight the eyes of the professional shopper, cosmetics, corsets, bustles, velvets, silks and woolens, worsted flowers, oil paintings plans of houses, fancy Comstocklan portraits, specimens ot ore and electric apparatus.

Fruits are often received, but thrown away at the slightest appearance of decay. Skins of animals for the taxidermist and birds' wings for the milliners also find their way Into the office together with Jewelry, oft times of great value, and notes and coin. Shoes, cloth- Ing and hardware are not wanting. A specimen card of Insects, containing all Bpocica native to a certain part of Africa and addressed to n scientist of prominence, has Just now been forwarded to the owner. A prize pumpkin and a complete set of dental Instruments were reposing side by side amonfr a heap of papers when tho reporter called, and on a shelf directly back of the table, alphabetically arranged, were newspapers from all parts of the world. In the book department, books, principally foreign, In elegant bindings, with dust for company, and manuscripts and even corrected proofs—ready for the printer—form an Interesting part of the collection. Novels in paper cover are everywhere. THE SYSTEM ADOPTED. Mr. Jones says that the system used in disposing of the accumulated matter was copied by every larser city in the Union and Inquiries regarding the work of the department are frequent. Since its establishment, seven years ago, It has grown to bo a necessary part of the gigantic postal system In operation In this city. To this office all parcels not addressed, or from which tho part of the address has been obliterated, are sent. To this office • are sent also all improperly packed parcels, and those which the postal officers have reason to believe contain contraband articles. The business of the employes In the office Is to put the addresses where they belong, repack the parcels when necessary, confiscate the things which have no place In the malls, and otherwise remedy the mistake caused by the carelessness or Ignorance of the senders. When a parcel is Improperly packed or something is wrong with the "address if the person for whom it is probably intended can be found, a circular is sent to him with the request for the name and description of the article, If the answer is satisfactory the parcel Is forwarded. In some coses the person addressed does not know the contents of the package, which frequently happens around Christmas when presents are the fashion. In that case the name of the sender is procured from the person addressed, and the parcel reaches its destination.—New York Commercial Advertiser. DKPARTTJKE8. Mrs. O. A.
