GO T) HOUSKKKKI'I.VIi hllS WOH name and fumo in its short life and both are well deserved. IN KENTUCKY, Texas anrt some otli- er States it is Democratic statesmen which ride around and clamor for State oilices; In this Srate, it is Republican ones. The minority docs not have to engage in the canvass in any State; but they wish they might, all the same. THEFF.IIKUAKY number of Dress, a magazine devoted to health and beauty, is a very satisfactory number. It discusses dress from a very sensible standpoint and will no doubt aid in giving woman many excellent Ideas upon the subject. The price is only two dollars — a year and line premiums are offered club raisers. Published at a.iu, ,V,.h Ave., N. Y. CHICAGO STILL offers up fervent petitions fur the Democratic national convention. No more expense to prepare a hall for the two than for one. .besides, two crowds ef equal size spend more money then does one of them. Hotels, restaurants &ud saloons are particularly and peculiarly concerned In this matter. WHEN DUMAS' Count of Monte Cristo was first published he was much ridiculed for making his hero find so much wealth in the cave on the rock islaud, s twenty-millionaire being then so great a rarity. Were he living now, and writing of the present time, he'd have to rate him four or live times higher, else his presence in 1'aris would not cause so great a furore, In.Xew York, London and Paris live many whose wealth far exceeds the fabulous wealth of .the eccentric hero Kdmund Dan tea. THREE QUARTERS of a century ago, American orators predicted that with the lapse of time the,iameof Washington would grow brighter and brighter, until the anniversary of his birth would be regarded by his countrymen as brightest and beat of all the day sot the year, in that it recalled the first of patriots, Hrst of rulers, first of soldiers. Alas I that it should be so; but while his name is often quoted and while in general terms, men speak reverently of .his memory, in some way there has grown up an indifference to this day. John C. Hamilton's history of the republic aud sundry revelations in the hero's life have combined to uring about the result in some measure pio- bably. At first he was wellnlgh del- tied. Slander which had during his life-time made most free with his name, was hushed at his death, and his former defamers became his moat valiant defenders. VVeems and Spatka rejected everything that could possibly reflect upon the subject of thelrjpralae; other biographers followed in the same-vein. Possibly Washington's now wellknuwn aristocratic views have tended most to the diminishing of his great fame. Hut we pass by tliis-yiew of the case, refraining from repeating any of trie slanders that were rife a century ago, and would . asy that the great hero of the revolution by every rule governing greatness merits the title of great and by every principle of gratitude merits the affection of his people. He was a man with thq frailties of his race, but he had fewer than weie common in his day. He was successful, defeating the armies of Britain aud founding a • republic upon such firm pillars as that it has withstood the shocks of wars'aud the throea of financial chicanery. Ilia administration HS ruler, after the war, culled for diplomacy and statecraft; he was equal to the need of the occasion. At the close or his administration he retired,, to ill. Vernon, where he showed as marked zeal in the raaH- agement of.fcls large estate as had characterized him when general of the armies and President of the republic. He died at the close of the century (from an attack greatly aggravated by physicians who took nearly all his blood from him, as was too frequent a practice In that day), leaving the heritage of a name which must ever stand first among the heroes and statesmen of the world. II? so blended personal ambition with love of country that he totally escaped the Implication of selfishness; he so disciplined his armies its to avoid being called martinet, yet with sufficient strictness to ensure best results in battle. ' He was resolute of purpose and inll<jxible in discipline, yet humane withaL He was strong in his attachments, yet in the bestowmenfc of ofll- 'JriTK A strong high licensw party is ~;>rinjrlnif up in Maine in opposition to prohibition. It wili he remembered t'isit Maine has had prohibition for upwards of thirty-live years. Scott to CAREFUL AS was Walter .••void anachronisms, yet in his charra- i-ifj Ivauhoe he has Richard of the Lion Heart when journeying with the fool uf Cedric and attacked by Fitzurse ) wear a helmet of date of two hundred .\ears later. Nothing was moro un- sijemly in shape then than . the head genr of a knight of that day, it being most nearly like a stove boiling pot of • mr day, with a long but narrow ipeu- ing for ventilation. previous to Hie scene above referred to, when Friar Tucfc is about to cuff Hichard, it would seem that the author knew the correct headgear, for Tuck refers to the pot up.m his head. Perhaps Scott was somewhat annoyed at the time of writ ing the Fitzurse tragedy by reason of his nearly impossible task of restoring Aihelstane to life after having had him clove through skull to teeth, a license of ronmnce rather beyond permissible length, and which set the critics after him. A POET is in our midst. He writes us he is but twenty two and encloses eight poems varying in length from lifiy to five hundred lines asks us to criticise and offers us the whole batch for ten dollars. The price is little enough, but the quality is not up to the standard. He calls it blank verse; it Is decidedly blank. Hexameter, however, is evidently an unknown word with the poet, as witness the following chosen at random from a "poem" entitled Scattering of Chaos. "Old Boreas blew Uls purple nose so very hiird, He scared tlie Harpies from their bowcred n?i»t mi highest peak. While Jove sat down and laughed until he started amber tears Wlilch ran until they made a pool at his feet, he might swim In." Our poet's figures are not wanting in boldness, and hypubole is his strongest grip, as note the capacity of Jove's tear-ducta. Scanning of Virgil and Homer and Paradise Lost might be good exercise, as well as four or five years study of versification. However, unlike Silas Wegg, the GAZETTE does not drop into poetry, even occasionally. What it does wish, is the news, the very latest. Our youngest help, in printer's parlance, the devil, being at the hobbledehoy age, when he fancies each maid he meets the object of his heart's adoration, can supply us at his leisure with all ot the poetry that the paper stands •in need of for ^he present. Probably by the time thefpoet above gets where he can endite real poetry, we'll he where we can take it off his hands as fast as he can manufacture it. Surprise Party on Alderman Brewer. Editor Gazette: Alderman Brewer is the oldest- inhabitant of the city of Sterling, barring Mrs. Worthlugton; that is, he has lived inside the present city -limits longer than any other person excepting the venerable and estimable lady named. Were it possible in the earlier days-ef Mr. Brewer's residence I ere to get together so large a body of people as met at his home last evening, the dally paper, had there been such a luxury in those df»ys, would, in chronicling the event, have said something like this: "A pleasant event in Harrisburg. 'All the inhabitants of Harrisburg, together wilh all the people from Chatham, gathered at the large and commodious residence of George- W. Brewer last evening, and after the regulation style governing all genuine surprise parties', passed the time until a late hour, etc., etc." The friends from Chatham, which WHS part of what is now second aad third wards, would have had a pleasant walk paM or through Brink's Held, which lay in-part of the section now called secoud warii, up to Harrisburg, — complaint about n rtivc comes in without signature. \Ve must IIMVP names of writers, or wo ciimiot publish. All should know by this time that tl-e (•AZETTE does not publish names of writers except with their consent. —An old gentleman of eighty stopped us this morning, and asked, "D;j you smell it? I mean the air. Springs lu-orning. When ssp begins to rise trip, air ia sweet,—spring aweet. It's drawing nigh." —At Deer (Jrove one night recently at the ventral examination by Supt. Ilehdricka In the school house, the big crowd was rather too much for the floor and it fell, afooforso, to the earth Nobody was hurt. —The GAZETTE wishes the tramp nuisance should be abated It knows that In BIT mouths time not one could be seen within two miles of Sterling, if our authorities will only arrange to put every one to work that IB caught within our city limits. —We are asked, "What about a farmers'club at Sterling V" We refer the matter to the farmers themselves. The live farmers of Palmyra have a fine one in operation; our farmers of Sterling, Jordan, Hume, Coloma, Montmorency, Hopkins, Ilahnamanand other adjacent towns ought to organize one here. —Tne editor met Mr. Brows of the Eureka last evening for the first time and it to jk them scarcely ten seconds for each to discern that the other was from the Southland. Mr. Brown hails from Virginia, and is a Hue specimen of the physical growth of the people of that sunny land; he is, as well, a most competent and skilled manager of a most Important branch of the Eureka Company's manufactures, viz., the buggy and road cart department.

He, was not an angel, but a man, who could show temper at times and one who unjoyed the gayeties,— the amusements of life. He ~was not a teetotaler and on extreme occasions actually swore; but nevertheless his ananuers and morals were so far ahead -of the fashion of his times as to win :for him highest praise as Christian and gentleman. To his eternal honor be it wald: He escaped the French atheism mr InfldelUy which possessed so many wf the public men of his day, and he •.»«! as be lived a Urm believer in the nJuristUn religion. By all people he Is esteemed the ensemble of fervid patriotism, disinterested statesmanship, bu: uaiie generalship, devoti n to duty. .jfot a people lives upon earth but re- S »fds uim'ss wttaowt a peer in the two i .twlitiea of virtue and patriotism, if be i a superior In street railways were not being agitated, city sewerage, city buildings,, gas projects, etc., did not quicken the pulse of the people; the GAZETTE which has earnestly advocated these results, lay dormant in the brain of its projectors. The present dam was not even a well developed chrysalis. The editor of our daily was yef by several years to have announced that he was born even, and of course couldn't "whoop it up" for the city of solid prospects and coming boom. But what I'm trying to get at ia the fact that a large number of friends of Alderman Brewer and family met at his residence, and on the Alderman's return from temperance meeting were found to be making things pretty much their own way ana wholly at their expense. The surprise was a complete one, and the evening was enjoyed hugely by all present; the air of informality that always pervades the Brewer household making all feel at once easy and free to act. Probably the most fun of the evening was derived from "pitching the bean bags," in which sport the ladies from Jordan showed remarkable skill, and records ranging from minus flve to plus ten. But it was with the elaborate spread which followed, that the men from Jordan, Foster, Gilbert, and the Brassier Bros., made a record for their township, and got in their work with a dexterity, accuracy and display of endurance that was simply amazing I here was no "five off" pitching done «ii e ",- A *. mld n'RW the crowd dispersed filled with cake andjother delicacies.

I used to look upon hulls, game* tiiid prjze matches us foolish nnil senseless things, fit only for Billy people who could not np- precluto the delights of literature. When I became older I BUW tho folly of this, notion, and entered Into tho common games nnd amusements of life like other people. For the customs, games and amusements of it people are the outcome of .long years of experience, the means whereby people come to relax themselves, and to throw off tho cures of business. Nay, more; they are tho means of forming acquaintances, of learning tho hublts, character, aud thoughts of each other, and of becoming skilled in social ways, in the power of amusing and entertaining others. Besides, any man that has an oye to see and aa ear to hear. can read a whole volume In some feto clmmpetre or in some open air match of two contending parties. It is here that character is exhibited, that wit, humor nnd raillery are apt to find free play; that disguises'are thrown off, and people show themselves as they are; aud it ia hero 'that a thousand things worth knowing may be learned when one has tho art to learn them. A man who can enjoy the literature of a people should be broad enough to enjoy their amusements, for without this breadth of char- actor he wlil never be able to produce anything thai, the • people will enjoy.— Home Journal. . Growing Tall by Exercise. Exercise ia generally taken without any direct reference to the increase of height. Thus it often happens that the gymnastic feats chiefly indulged in tend rather to check than to increase the rate of growth. This applies particularly to the lifting of heavy weights, the use of large dumb bella, Involving comparatively slow movements, and all exercises which tend to Increase the supporting power of the spine and the leg bones, even though they may be exercises primarily directed to Increase the muscular power of the arms. Pulling exercises, though they tend to increase the development of the arms In length as well as in girth (round the forearm chiefly), do not on the whole favor the development of length of limb. Bailors, who from boyhood upward are much employed in pulling andjiaullng, are on the average short men, though often the development of strength and weight resulting from their active open air lives Is remarkable. We soe ofteuer among them than in other classes brawny chests, shoulders and upper arms in company with lower limbs which by comparison appear almost stunted. On the other hand, men engaged In hunting, or In occupations requiring much walking, running, leaping aud the like, acquire well developed lower limbs,"and are on the average taller than other classes.—Professor Richard A.
