THURSDAY. FKU. 13. I8S8. A CmrAoo EXCHANGE' sneering!} says, in commenting upon the remark of a country paper that the great" cit) papers are ready to pay large sums for telegraphic news about the moral tur pitude of people from the country places, that such people must behave if they wish to keep our of the papers and that such publication is wholesome punishment. These game city papers which look upon country people assort of half civilized folks and as created for their special ridicule and abuse, may find .all the lechery and other immorality ;they require for their columns, without going outside of the corporate limits of the places of publication. It has got to be so that snoops of correspondents, in order to earn a few dollars will take idle rumor which lies like an ancient 'Cretan or "Eli 1'ucklns," and out of It construct a yarn that breaks. some indiscreet, but probably innocent of wrong .doing, woman's heart and blast an honest man's life; and the "great city papers" use the vile stuff, on the principle that anything evil about "country jocks" must be true. HOLMAN, THE pnnce of objectors. who goes by the name of "I object" among his colleagues, has been maintaining bis reputation of late by trying to defeat the bills for government buildings at various points in the country. Our government is now the richest on earth, and its immense revenues will justify it in putting up structures of its own and ceasing to be renter. This is the practise with other nations, and it tends to the keeping of money distributed throughout the land. Again• individuals' wealth is best established and shown by their visible property which enables them not only to prove property but also to negotiate loaiiji at pleasure. Give our government pro" perty in all the cities of 5,000 and upwards in the country,aud it would prove basis of credit to the amount invested at any rate! Besides: the practice comports with the dignity of so great a mi tion as ours, while the opposite shows —niggardliness. Fortunately, Mr. Holman's 'persistent objecting to most things which he does not originate, greatly weakens his influence. How PINCHED must newspapers be for subjects when they seriously discuss whether Cleveland will accept a renominationt Why, to say he, will not is an insult to his intelligence and an Insult to the republic itself. If he should decline to run, it would be absolute self-confession that he stands no show of election. Never has a man declined a chance to be President, or declined a reelection. Washington earnes tly desired to hold a third term and only gave over because of abuse of him, which he feared would result irl defeat, and hja proud and sensitive nature could not brook the contingency of defeat. Say that any man in all America would refuse the homage, the courtesy, the reverence, even, that ut taches to the Presidential olllce,—re- fuse to be placed where he cun say, "1 am head of the grandest republic upon earth," is to say at once that man is a lunatic. And not only will man accept, but he will risk chances of defeat, as so matty have done. Hence, we say, Cleveland is a man of common seme, and any man would take the Presidency, or any sort of a chance of getting it. How STKANQE it is that men cannot argue on living questions without resorting to personal abuse. We know itia customary to "say, Personal invective is the resurt of Ignorance; that is true, but it is the resort of intelligence as well. -When a man gets warmed up to intense faith in principle, he gets so devoted to it, that he is ready to pronounce anathema against those who differ with him It is to be regretted . We have had to (JURAT BniTAi.v hni frf-f? trade, and she lias seven millions of paupers out of a population of thirty-four millions. Free trade mayn't have done it; but the facts are BS we state them NASIIY'S "CONKKIJUJT" Cross Roads letters ran through a quarter ot a century and never lost, their interest, the longest instance on record ot maintaining 'public favor upon a single theme, and the genius of the man is shown the stronger in that his iirlid.'S were humorouR, the quality being most evanescent of all styles of literature! ONE OF the latest tricks of southern lotteries is to advertise that certain men have drawn 825,000 to S50,ono prizes, giving the name of a genuine town and a fictitious person. Of course, these lottery companies are regular swindling enterprises, and the man who puts his money in them does so only to lose It. TUB FINEST thiug out is that certain newspapers should insist that Mrs. Sheridan doesn't know where ..her sou Phil, was born. The old lady is truthful and pious; they don't deny that, and they admit she Is sensible and possessed of excellent memory; but add that some insignificant and far off cousin, who seeks cheap notoriety is more familiar with the fact of Sheridan's advent into this world than his own mother. THE MOST absurd and vulgar story yet started by any newspaper reporter is the one that Mrs. Cleveland had "snubbed" Mrs. Grant. A snub can only come from a supposed superior. WHh all respect to Mrs. Cleveland who has demeaned herself''since she has been known to fame' with such propriety as to win general 'commendation' Mrs. Grant is the peer of the most exalted woman of earth. She possesses all the graces and charms of perfect womanhood. During her husband's army life and when he was President she was praised by. all. Not even dur-j 'ng those days of bitterness and strife .vhen General Grant was assailed as few men have been attacked, did mortal man say aught against Mrs. Grant. ! She was most loyal of wives, she is most devoted of mothers, and a grand, good, pure woman, worthy to be crowned because of her excelling worth. Mrs. Cleveland has not yet beeu known to do an unladylike action, and it would be unladylike and vulgar in her or any other woman to show purposed slight to Mrs. Grant. Mrs. Cleveland couldn't.- snub Mrs. Grant if she would, and she wouldn't if she could; and that is all there is about it. rearing; of [ins .ialcablo animals 1'oor, inferior, worthless heiisla are mated together and the result is, of course, a comparatively worthless progeny. . None but the best should be used for reproduction and the purest blood of the breed "desired should be sought after. The stud books or registers thould be consulted. To illustrate: The National Trotting Horse Breeders Association publish the American Trotting Register which gives to every stallion that is eligible to entry a number. If he is not registered he has no number. If any doubts or fears are entertained a letter addressed to John II. Wallace :>•<(> Broadway, New York, will prodine the desired facts. "Mk« produces like.," the pure breeds reproduce themselves. Such qualities should be mated as it is desired to perpetuate. Too Mnch Good Lnrk.

Said a most sweotspirited man once; "Do you know my hardest llgiit is against that disposition to deem every man a very demon who tukea side opposite to mine in great moral questions? I get so thoroughly persuaded of the righteousness of my cause that at heart I often refuse to admit that those on opposite side are honest or fair,— that they can possibly believe what they assert." This muu did keep down aueh temper and was always fair ia controversy, but he felt THE GREATNESS otjVtuerlca is clearly manifest; but it, has received full credit for what it deserves. Before it hud assumed anything like its present wealth and importance, geographers and biographers deemed it their duty to especially glorify, the first, national glories of America; the latter, its public men. Charles Dickens "caught it all around," when his American Notes, which caricatured this weakness of our writers appeared. To this day, iu the _ face of positive evidence to the Contrary, most Americans are ready for a tilt with any one who says the Mississippi is not the longest river in the world, although the Amazon,and the Nile are both longer. Its lakes are prettiest, its caves the longest, its capes the most dangerous, its lands the most fertile. Of course, from the standpoint of the GAZETTE, it is right to up's country and home; yet at the same time when talking, 'among ourselves and where outsiders can't get hold of it, a little honest confession now and then is not out of placo. Great is America—the United States, part of it. No people ever in five times the number of years attained so great a growth and not one ever reached so great wealth.. This is incontrovertible. It is, however, a mistake to insist that ours is the one eden of earth and that all that are outside are denizens of deserts and steppes. England, Scotland, France, most of the German states, a large part of' Russia, Switzerland and Holland are sharers with pur country in the extreme blessings of fruitful aoil and progressive spirit of the age Of one blood hath he made all nations Garment* of the Kikiino.

The pattern of their garments varies not n whit from generation to generation. Tue coat, which docs not button but is hauled on over the head, has a large capuchin, in Eskimo language, "atnook," nt the back of the neck. The only difference between the coats of the men and tlio women lies in the latter being graced with a tail, both "fore and nft," so to speak, upon which the feminine fondness for ornamentation is Indulged to the full extent of the wearer's means, so that tliey may be seen adorned with numerous rows of beads and bits of brass or copper, such things as the works of a clock not being despised, for instance. A very popular form of decoration consists of tablespoons, which they break in two and arrange in various devices, grouping the handles in one place a,nd tho bowls in another.—J.

The Chinese are a heaUJiy people in spit* of their indescribably fllthy surroundings. I attribute this to their use of tea as a bev- eruge. This Is the only redeeming feature of their lives.
