Mr. Tanner, lately Commissioner of Pensions, nas been succeeded by Hon. Green B. Raum. The new appointee i8 a native of Illinois, and is a Trilie under sixty years of age. He i- a Republican, with a record nearly as old as the party itself. In 3857 he was driven out cf Kansas City for his Free State opiuions- His military career, which covered near“ ly, if not quite, the whole period of the war, was distinguished and brilliant- In civil life he has had a long, useful and honorable experience. Mr. Tanner’s retirement from office has been magnified beyond its real importance, and designedly so. The clearly-revealed purpose has been to divide the soldier vote, and iu doing so to split the Republican party. Of course it is of Democratic origin. Their first step was to assail Mr. Tanner incessantly and venomously for bis official acts and the motives whioh lay behind them. When his resignation was made public, the Democratic outcry against him was changed to one of pretended sympathy. This was quickly followed up with the charge that his deposition was a blow at the soldiers. With men who stop to think and to reason this oan have no weight. Gen. Harrison was as gallant a soldier and remaius as true a friend to his comrades as Mr. Tanner, and is as little likely either to wish or to do them an injury. As President, he was responsible for Mr. Tanner, whose methods were not satisfactory, and so he simply did what the public interests seemed to require—replaced him with another man. This is precisely what Mr .Tanner would have done with any subordinate of his own, under like conditions. In doing this neither Mr. Tanner’s patriotism nor his personal honesty are called in question. Nor is he nor any of his friends warranted in impugning the President’s motives, or in questioning his friendship for his comrades or the sincerity of his oft-declared good intentions toward them. Soldiers and their friends who take a contrary view and act on it, are simply and foolishly lending themselves to the mischievous proposes of the Democratic managers. j Foston, of Noble township, their daugh- in recognition of the great ser- j ter Mies Ella, and Orpheus, sou of Mr. he has rendered to Cincinnati.

The bride is handsome, amiable and domestic. Their married life begins with promise of realizing all the happiness which numerous friend-»—which includes the R epublican , of course— unite in wishing them. The wedding took place in the Poston homestead, and drew together under its hospi table roof a pleasant company of relatives and neighbors, numbering about sixty. After the tying of the knot, a supper, excellent in quality aud varied and unlimited iu quantity, was served to the assembled guests. The bridal presents included a hand some Bible, from Joseph Harton; fancy towels from Mrs. Martha Moor; water pitcher, Mr. and Mrs. J. G.

While his reputation and future memory were as dear to me as to any man, I had no concern as to whether bis grave-atone iu Spring Grove should be granite or marble. His monument is the beautiful Museum that crowns yonder hill, and down the coming centuries men and women shall visit it and grow better and happier for it, and shall revere and bless his name long after bis resting-place is forgotten. If those of you here to-night will endow some charity or public institution there will be no difficulty in the future men and women knowing that you lived and lived to some purpose. That is the evangel of humanity and the very gospel of progress. How much better to thus use wealth, than to employ it wholly iu selfish gratifications and valgar display. A Bargain For Farmers !

A certain evangelist in Western Virginia organized a Sunday school, and by dint of diplomacy obtained a goodly following of youngsters into whose uncombed heads and pliant hearts he instilled the rudiments of religion. Neither did he spare the corrective rod in case his charge failed to come to taw with the catechism. One Sunday a new arrival was discovered over in the hoys’ corner. He was called down before the teacher and cross- examined with a view to learning his religious acquirements. “How many gods are there?” asked the teacher. The hoy thought a moment and ventured the assertion that there were two. “Wrong!” said the teacher. “Three!" Oh! you must know better than that! ! Try again. # IIow many gods are there?” “Four!” whimpered the boy. “Wrong again!” shouted the instructor. “I will give you one more chance. If you don't answer right this time Til tan you. Now, for the last time how many gods are there?” “Five!” wailed the unhappy tow head. Smack! The teacher gave him a thorough dressing down and sent him from the room in disgrace. A belated scholar found him sitting by the roadside howling at the top of his voice. “What’s the matter, Jack?” “Teacher licked me.” “What for?” He Could Drive. The first colonel of the First Maine cavalry was bluif John Goddard, an iron sided old lumberman. Before the war he used to take gangs of men into the woods every winter. Late one fall in the “fifties” a tall, lank Yankee came into Col. Goddard's office and asked for employment as a teamster. “Do you know how to drive oxen?” asked Goddard. “I rather reckon I do,” was the bashful response. “Suppose I was a yoke of oxen,” said Goddard, getting down on “all fours” on the office floor, “and suppose 1 would not haul, let me see what you would do to make me come up under the yoke.” The Yankee objected at first, hut when he was told that his winter's work depended upon the trial, he took the long hradded oaken ox goad and began to flourish it over the kneeling Goddard's head. “Hish, Bright; get up there, Golden. Come here. Star; gee off, Liru,” he yelled in turn, hut never a move did Goddard make. Finally, getting weary, the teamster inserted the steel brad into Goddard’s trousers. The coming cavalry colonel got up in a hurry, and the Yankee was hired at his own price, proving the best teamster in the gang. When the cavalry regiment was organized the humorous teamster went to the front as a private, and when he fell fighting under Grant he had a set of lieutenant's epaulettes on his shoulders.— Lewiston Journal. 12 lbs.

A T Curious Hindoo Notion«. A curious light is thrown on the rural life of Bengal by the contents of a paper reprinted lately in the anuual report of the Bombay Anthropological society, says The Calcutta Times. From this paper we are told the following, among other things: Shouting the name of the king of birds (garuda) drives away snakes. Shouting ram, ram. drives awav ghosts. Cholera that attacks on Monday or Saturday ends fatally, but no cholera tiiat attacks on Thursday. The flowering of bamboos augurs famine. In fanning, if the fan strikes the body it should he thrice knocked against the ground. When giving alms the giver and receiver should not he standing on different sides of the threshold. It is bad to pick one’s teeth with one's nails. If a snake is killed it should he burned, for it is a Brahman. At night the words “snake” and “tiger" should not be used; call them creepers and insects. Do not wake up a sleeping physician. A morning dream always comes to pass.
