On Wednesday evening two youni:
persons one a gentleman, the other

"Pshaw liezekia," said she with a
voice 'ovv and musical as the summer
winds. Hezekiah: "yon are jut real

"Jesting," said lie, "jesting," and
he seemed to grow a foot taller.

DiscM nancy Is the Ccnsas.
The most glaring errors hav
discovered and equally glaring things
done to cover them up. The manu
facturers' division recently reported
their results, and they gave as their
footings 65,000,000 more pounds of
flour manufactured than the agricul
tural division reported pounds of
wheat grown The division of final
results found the contiadictions, an.
a talk was held in regard to it.
Strangely enough, the
agricultural division was accepted as
against the divisiotrof manufacturers)
and the latter had to be cut down to
suit the amount of wheat, grown. The
result of the wholj thing is that con
fidence has 1 een lost in many of the
returns of the Census Bureau, and
much injuiy has been done the inter
est of the millers who have produced
flour. There does not seem to be
anv reason why the agricultural i
vision figures should be accepted, as
those of the division of manufacturers
were obtained from responsible sour,
ces. and in most cases from the mill
ers themselves. Cincinnati Enquirer.

During the year which ended on
the 30th of June last, there were
carried in the mails of the United
States more than one thaosaud mill
ion letters. As the population of the
country is rather more man uity
millions, it follows that, on the aver
age, men, women and children, every
person in the country sent twenty
letters dining the year, and received
the same umber.
In 1861 the entire receipts of the
Post-office Department only slightly
exceeded eight and a half million
dollars. In 1870, there were nearly
nineteen millions. In 1881 thy
came near thirty-seven milions. It is
not drawing very much upon the
imagination to estimate that by 1800
they will exceed seventy millions of
dollars. Daily Talk.
Proposed Tax oa Greea&sck
A biil has been introduced into
Congress making Legal Tender notes
taxable the same as Gold and Silver.
There is $346,681,000 of these notes
charged on the books of the Treasury
Department. They are used the
same as other forms of money, but
are exempt from taxation because it
has been held that the Government
has no right to tax its own evidence
of indebtedness. The one oiiject of
the bill, no matter what the pretend
ed design of the author, is to dimin
ish the popularity of the Greenback
and to compel ihe Government to
retire it from circulation. Many
hold that this was the aim of the
Resumption Act. But the Finance
Minister took a dlfftTeut vew,
claiming the right to pay out redeem
