Even tlie alleged ignorant foreign element of the East side revere Ifowells. His,latest work is now running- as a aerial translated into Hebrew in a weekly on the East side. It is not likely that the talk of sending Mr. Ifowells to congress will result in anything of a political nature in bis future. It is the invariable habit in New York, whenever :<• man becomes suddenly popular, to l.alk of semling- him tocongress; but the present aspect of the Howells cult is significant as .showing how powerful a man may bo- .come with tbe "masses" by advocating what are termed socialistic ideas, nl- thoug-h, as Mow-ells himself 1ms pointed out, the ideas often branded as socialistic are far less socialistic than many accepted thing's— the Christian religion, •for instanec.

At tbis time there is a sort of blockade, and orders urc not coming in as.rapidly as they miffht. hence the artists have a selfish interest in seeing that present dissensions are put to au end, as they probably soon will be, and the price of statuary will once more be up to par.

(5) Some inventors take the precaution to have an expert in Washington search the patent office files, to discover whether anybody has already patented his idea. Such experts can be hired for between two dollars and five dollars. (n) If a person can not easily raise the money to pay the government anil his attorney, he can sometimes sell a quarter or a half of his right to a manufacturer or other person for enough to cover the necessary outlay. Jn order to perfect the invention, some expense fur material and experiment is often incurred; and this, perhaps, can \>c met in the same way. If no lawyer or manufacturer is willing to .advance a ivnt for this purpose, the inventor may well doubt the value of liis idea. Money is often wasted by patenting- a worth- li.'i.s article. — N. Y.

Tl»e regular army of the United States costs more to support, in proportion to (he number of enlisted men, than the army of any European power. One reason for this is the fact that, our army is scattered, in comparatively small detachments, over a fjreat extent of country, and that many military posts arc in remote places where it i.s costly to maintain them. Hut if thu army is costly in proportion to its sixc, we employ it for various purposes which arc more nearly connected with peai-.e than with war, »jjil ihnsi fret out of it valuable nerviee, which Knropeitn powers pa.y for separately.• . i ^V)n!e w« maintain this army of ! about twenty-eijfht thousand men and j oftiuers at a hi^h slate of military efficiency and readiness for war. we require the officers to render a practical equivalent as they fro nlonfj for the I cost of their education and support, i They, to their credit be il said, wel- i uome active employment in useful j functions. | It was largely to afford such employ j ment to officers, commissioned and uon- ; commissioned, that the signal (service of the army was developed into a ' "weather bureau."

Flower to have him renominat- i:d for (,'overnor this summer, arc successful the i-xecntive head of the Emp ; .re state will owe Misprize as much to liis wife as to 1I14B.-K. I'. FI.OWEH. liny one C 1 K (>. Mrs. Flower has proved the most popular jrovcrnor's Judy in New York for miuiy a day, and some of the social rivals of this tactful woman accuse her of bi.-inf,' Machinvoliun in the interest of her husband, liut that is n mistake, for Mrs. flower lias often taken occasion to SSL.V that .she is not a society woman uml has never aimed at social pre.sti<ro. in which case it has come to her withotit any effort of hers. This g-OKsip is interesting- as illustrating, the increasing influence of women in New York politics. Time was when such a thinfiT as social affairs havinp any influence on politics was too fanciful for consideration, but there nre at least four women In the metropolis who are recognized influences in this way. Delegates are regularly invited to the houses of men who expect to benefit fn one way or another from the work they are to do in convention, and BH for social attentions to legislators b,y the wives of officials 'and from municipal officers' wives, they are no w a matter of course. > tnrM Who .SeriouAly Think of D.iliiff .So. Persons who are likely to apply for a patent would do well to cut out and preserve tho following instructions: (I) Write to the commissioner of patents, Washing-ton, D. C, requesting a copy of the "Rules of Practice," which he will send free. Then cure- fully reml from pnjfi; 9 to pag-i: 17, about the articles which may be patentr ed, and the fbrtri of application and drawings. In another part of the pamphlet there are specimen applications and drawings. (a) Prepare an application in accordance with tlie rules, make or procure I drawings such as the patent ofiice requires, make onth ,to your papers and send to the commissioner of patents with fifteen dollars. This is. the first government fee. Later, if you receive notice that a patent will be issued, then a second government fee of twenty dollars must be paid, (li) Some people are able to prepare their own papers and drawings properly; but those who are not consult a lawyer and employ a druug-htsman. Patent lawyers' charges vary according to tho importance of the case; but they seldom ask !es.s tlwn twenty or thirty dollars, anil sometimes more, besides the cost of the drawings. (4) If an inventor is afraid that someone will steal his idea before he can put it in sliape lie can protect himself in two ways. First, he can make out, a paper called a "Caveat," and send to ]' the commissioner of patents. This document briefly describes his invention, and declares that he has not yet perfected it. It will be g-ood for a year, if nooue else has patten ahead of him; and It may bo renewed for another year. The caveat is described-on pageH 53 and 5» of "Rules of Practice," and a specimen caveat is givpn further along in that publication. A fee of ten dollars must be paid to Uncle Sam for each year a caveat is in force. Another way to guard one's right* is to tell a trusty' friend about tha exact, natuw of the proposed Invention, and have that friend make a record of the date, so that, If neceatary,, he can -swear to it, and thun prove priority of invention, 11 some one else wronfl-frilly claims the A Ruddy Glow on cheek and brow is evidence ~5 that the body is getting proper nourishment.

AK an Instance of the advance preparations of Tammany for any event may be noted the efforts to have Congressman and Tariff Student Wilson to deliver the long; talk at Tammany's Fourth of July celebration this year. Al- thouph it is barely spring, plans have already been made to OONORESSMAS have the Independence day tion of Tammany no Imposing in It* Meantime, othor army officers—those of the engineer corps—had long- been, and arc now, actively employed in laying out and constructing- river and harbor improvements. This service is fully In thelineof publicutility. TheUnited States ftovernment in the lutt fiscal your upeut five times as mnoh money for river and harbor improvements all ov«r the country in it did for fortifications and other works of defense. A considerable number of ofllcers are employed in making,topographical and geodetic surveys of the face of the country; for our country is still im- I parfeotly mappad. The service which ] army officers arc doing in this field of science is one distinctly useful to the general public. A recent law has provided' that, except in certain specified canes, army officers shall be detailed to act an Indian agents. This service is already nflordln(f employment for a large number of ofilcers. In niidition to routine, duties they direct the effort which »re [ making to render the Indians indnstri- | oils and seK-supportinp, and iook out 'for their interest and welfare in many ways. The employment of army officers i» the work is plensinp to the Indians as well as conducive to the g-ood of the service. The army oflleers, being educated men, trained to conscientious ! public service, and secure in their posi- i tion, having no inducement but to make a good record, ure the best Indian agents that the government could get. They are eligible to regular promotion in their military grades during this special service, and at the end of a certain time return to their posts in their regiments. There are other duties of • general character to which officers and men are individually detailed, at Washington-and elsewhere, in vrhioh service of ft useful character Is performed. Military glory of the old sort «n»y conie to the officer of tha preMBt pen- dration, though nil signs point to a long period of peace within and without our borders.
