The only sensible way to build up a
ity, community or state, ia to patronize
the enterprises in our midst. There are
many people who imagine it is good
taste to send abroad for every thing they
eat, wear or use in their houses, and if
this line of action were carried out by
our business men generally, it would
lead to disastrous results. Our stores
would close their doors and be obliged to
seek other fields for business. The only
way for the people to prosper is to en
courage and assist in building up the
important industries. It is often neces
sary to pay a little more, but the money
is kept at home and circulated among
our people. Citizens often complain of
hard times when they have no one to
blame but themselves. Stand together,
work together and prosj)er together and
we shall never hear or know of hard
The recent census of Germany shows
the empire has a population of about
40,420,800; in December, 1871, the pop
ulation of the new empire was 41,058,792.
The increase of 2,565,000 in the first five
years was the greatest ever known in an
equal period of time. A remarkable
fact disclosed by the census is the mark
ed increase in the population of cities.
The gain of Berlin is about 10 per cent
of the entire increase in the empire and
the ten largest cities claim one-half of
the total growth. It is calculated that
while the population of Germany shows
an increase of 4,200,000 for the past ten
years, Austro-Hungarv has gained, less
than 3,000,000, France scarcely million,
judging from official ' estimates, Italy
2,750,000, the British Isles abort 3,600,
000 and Russia, about I2,Q0Q,00O.
Results are already; beginning' to ap
pear from the postal , subsidy bill. The
Inman steamship company , have been
induced by it tq undertake the construc

equal to the very finest vessels, v afloat.
They will be built in this country and
will fly the American' flag. The esti
mated cost ' is $4,000,000 for the two,
each to be of 10,500 tons register. These
millions of dollars will, therefore, be
spent to give employment to American
labor, and .to circulate aruongl American
tradesmen, instead ,. of " going abroad.
Even a little protection to shipping
works very well. ' . .
In the old times ice was brought from
the mountains and stored away in pits
dug in the earth and covered with straw
or other substances that proved non
conductors of heat and also protected it
from the air. Mention of this fact is
made in the Proverbs of Solomon, and it
is frequently alluded in the writings
of the ancient Greeks and Romans. It
is still in vogue in Italy, where, snow
gathered in the Appenines is brought by
peasants to the principal cities and
stored in cellars made especially for that
purpose. . J ,
The new boat, the Norma, which is to
ply on the Snake river i has been com
pleted, and will commene running as
scon as a sufficient stage of water is had.
It is quite likely that neither the Colum

great height this summer, as the snow
is generally sinking into the ground as
fast as it melts, and the mountain
streams are carrying off very little sur
Kearney, Neb., has an incorporated
World's Fair Excursion & Investment
company, with capital stock ' of $100,000.
It invites persons to pay to it $52 in
installments of 50 cents a week, and
agrees for that sum to take them to and
from the world's fair in special trains,
pay for their meals en route, and their
living expenses for a week in Chicago at
the best $3 per-day hotel and furnish
them with tickets of admission, guides

A modern Fagin' has been unearthed
at Buffalo, N. Y. He has nine children,
all of whom of suitable age, he and his
wife had trained in pocket-picking.
Seventy-one pocket-books were found in
his house. The exposure grew out ' of
the arrest of two of his' girls, who were
detected in picking pockets at a museum,
and who have been Bent to a reforma
tory. The worthy couple will probably
be retired to Auburn Prison. ,'

serves the Washington Star. The pet
dog of the establishment, and looked up
on by both the president and Mrs. Har
rison as a valued friend, is the Scotch
collie, Dash. Dash is a fighter, not be
cause he likes it. particularly, but just
on general principles. ' He came with
the family iron) Indianapolis, and his
high-tempered proceedings there have
not deserted him. On the contrary, he
seems to feel that a great deal more
depends upon his ability to chew up any
other animal who foolishlv risks his fur
within his reach. In Indianapolis, and
here for a time,' Dash took a great deal of
pleasure in following the family carriage
down town, of anywhere else it happened
to be going. Especially when the ladies
emerged from their shopping they would
usually find Dash inthe middle of a con
flict with some other rash animal. The
scene of the fight was under the carriage,
which territory Dash felt proud to pro
tect from all intruders. These little in
consistencies made him rather an unwise
companion, and now the special province
of Dash is to keep the White House
f rounds free from unsafe intruders,

Baby is sick. The woeful expression
of a Des Moines teamster's countenance
showed his deep anxiety was not entire
ly without cause, when he inquired of a
druggist of the same city what was best
to give a baby for a cold? It was not ne
cessary for him to say more, his counte
nance showed that the pet of the family,
if not the idol of his life was in distress.
"We give our baby Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy," Was the druggist's answer.
"I don't like to give the baby such strong
medicine," said the teamster. You know
John Oleson, of the Watters-Talbot Print
ing Co., don't you? inquired the drug
gist. "His baby, when eighteen months
old, got hold of a bottle of Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy and drank the whole of
it. Of course it made the baby vomit
very freely but did not injure it in the
least, and what is more, it cured the ba
by's cold. The teamster already knew
the value of thf Remedy, having used it
himself, and was now satisfied that there
was no danger in giving it even to. a
baby. For sale by Snipes & Kinersly.

Every one who walks along upper
.Broadway knows the blind newsman
and his dog at the corner of Thirtieth
street, The man sits on a camp stool
from noon until 8 o'clock every day sell

dog is his constant companion.
The other evening, when the man had
sold all his papers and was ready to go
home, he got np, folded his camp stool
and tucked it under his arm, . and catch
ing a tight hoid of the string attached
to the dog's collar, started to walk up
Broadway. When they reached the
middle of the next block the dog stopped.
'Come along-, get. tip; Prince,? said
the blind man, tagging at tha atring.
But the dog seemingly paid no attention.
He was looking intently down the street
at the approaching horse cars. . He stood
tins' way ' for some minutes, scanning
each car carefully as it passed, and sud
denly ran out into the street, , the man
