So there the matter stands. It is
proposed, however, by some of the
leading Grant politicians who wish
to hold on to their money making of
fices through this and another term,
to make an organized effort to in
duce their leader to give to their un
ited advice that heed which he refu
ses to individuals, and, in the event
of failure, which they anticipate, to
subscribe and present to him the
amount of his extra salary, 8100,000,
upon the receipt of which it has
been obliquely hinted to some of
them, he would listen to reason,—
condemn the salary bill, indignantly
refuse the increase voted him, and
otherwise adopt the magnanimous
and patriotic course advised, the
propriety of which is not now clear

I heard it stated authoritively in
the ante-room of the White House,
this morning, that many influential
members of the Kansas legislature
are working to secure the nomina
tion of Ex-Senator Pomeroy for the
seat in the U. S. Senate, made vacant
by the resignation of Caldwell. Pom
eroy was remarkable for his industry
while in the Senate, and was person

Senators and the people. Although
a pronounced administration repub

A B lunder . —Whitelaw Reid was
a dozen years ago editing the Xenia
(Ohio) News. In his “ Traits of Jour
nalism,” he tells the following:
“ One day we had an advertisement
of the Columbus Commercial C ol
lege, and the foreman came to mo
and told me there must be au editor
ial notice of it. My time was short.
The forms were waiting and I wrote
straightway: ‘The Columbus Com
mercial College is an excellent and
well-deserving institution. The ad»
vertisement appears in another col
umn.’ I sent it to the proof-reader
and went home. I got up late the
next day, and the edition hud all
been mailed before I saw it. 1*00
can imagine the perfectly amiable
state of feeling when I read:- ‘The
Columbus Commercial College is an
excellent and hell - deserving insti
tution.’ Yon can’t believe it. but to
this day the bill for that advertise
ment is running.”
“ S how H im the D oor .”— When a
phrase gets to bo an idiom , or a piecd
of slang, they faro hard sometimes
who happen to use it according to
grammar. The Greenup (Ky.) In
dependent tells this:
Our old friond, Mr. Willis Love
lace, one day last week called at the
depot in this place for a door that had
been shipped to him. The agent
spoke to an employe, who evidently
had not been in the business long,
telling him to show Mr. Lovelace
the door. They both proceeded into
the large wareroom adjacent to the
passenger depot, where tho young
man made some very active efforts
toward pntting the old gentleman out
of the door on the railroad track, but
the noise occasioned called the agent
who explained tho misunderstand

A Mrs. Mislap, whoso husband is
in the Denver jail for robbery, took
him a roast chicken in which were
concealed a knife, a loaded pistol and
a bank note for $50, together \Vith a
letter directing the prisoner where
to look for further supplies when he
should escape. The “ Stuffing” was
taken out of that chicken befbie Mis-
lap got it, and Mrs Mislap was ‘stuf-
fed" into the jail.
A beautiful young girl was mar
ried in San Francisco last week, and
at the conclusion of tho marriage
ceremony she turned to her husband
and said, “ George, kiss me, I am dy
ing.” The husband complied with
the request, and at that moment the
young bride fell dead to the floor.
Dr. Hayes gives it as his opinion
that Captain Hall, the Arotic explor
er, was killed by his crew who muti
nied, bnt this is not clear. The P o
laris penetrated into tho north re

C ol . E. J. C. Kewen, of Los An

semi-tropical fruit trees of all kinds.
Many of them are already in bearing.
He expects in five years to bo in re

these trees of 850,000.
A Louisville papier tells its readers
that the sidewalks in that city abound
in boles “ the size of a lady’s foot,”
and in another column sayB that a
boy six years old fell into one of them.
A celebrated wit was asked why he
did not marry a young lady to whom
he was much attached. “ I know no
j reason,” replied he “ except the great
j regard we have for each other.”
