NOTES AND COMMENTS.
J An intoxicated passenger on a
"Virginia railroad showed his total ab
stinence pledge when asked for a
ticket. The conductor punched the
pledge, and wrote on it "one drunk."
A seven-year-old boy is missing in
Philadelphia. A playmate says: "We
went into an empty house, and played
there a good long time, and when we
came out some big bo.ys came by and
pulled the door shut, and Willie was
inside;" but he has no idea where the
house is. The police are .to search
every unoccupied house in the city.
Thomas Jefterson's house is in a
ruined condition, and a long lawsuit
prevents any improvement. The farm
is worn out, and the house described
as "that marvellous conception of Jef
ferson's put into brick, mortar, and
wood, with funny little rooms, novel
shaped large rooms, halls that go no
where, and rotundas without purpose"
VIr. Hutchinson, a leading opera
tor on the Chicago board of trade,
wished to secure a certain estate for
his son-in-law, and bid $-19,000. Then
lie discovered that there was a sealed
bid in the competition, and induced
the assignees to wait till he could put
in a new bid at a higher figure, tie
subsequently learned that in his sec
ond lie had raised on his son-in-law's !
offer just 12,000.
The San Francisco Post h:is taken
pains to collate press dispatches j
Jrom the east ior tne penoa oi two
"months past, and it does not hesitate
to declare that, taken together, they
present a false aspect to the current
news. There is evidently method in
them, and the person under whose
direction they are made up either un
dertakes to run the news on the basis
i his own opinions, or he is carefully
following a policy that is laid down for
Dom Pedro and the Empress dis
play great interest, during their travels
in Europe, in benevolent institutions
of all kinds, everywhere visiting asy
lums for the blind and the deaf and
dumb, orphan homes, and hospitals.
The deaf and dumb institutions in
Rotterdam, Holland, was particularly
admired by them. Queen Sophia had
called their attention to it as an object
of her pride and attachment, and made
them promise to visit it. The asylum
is partly supported by the state, but
has also been made the object of large
A resident of Orange county, Ya. ,
belonged to a Florida regiment during
the war. He was wounded in one of
the numerous battles fought in that
part of Virginia. The surgeon told
him he could never recover the use of
his leg. "Then," said he, "I shall
never leave this battlefield. " And he
has kept his word. A traveler lately
saw his crutch standing at his cabin
door as the cars went by. His tobacco
Jot was pointed out, and the informa
tion given that he has a little factory
where he makes chewing and smoking
6 Vermont has a law, like in New
York state, making rum-sellers liable
for damages arising from drunkenness
caused by their liquor, and under it a
verdict of 82,000 has just been secured
y a Reedsboro woman. Her com
plaint was for the permanent injuries
received by being thrown from a wag
on in consequence of her husband, who
was driving, being drunk on liquor
bought of the defendants. This was
the second tiiai of the case m the same
court, the first having resulted in a
verdict of $1,S20 for the plaintiff. It
was carried before the Supreme court
Judges, and by them sent back to the
county court en some technical error.
The defendants denied responsibility,
on the ground that the man had only
procured one drink of them, at which
time he was sober.
. Joseph Smith, son of the origina
tor of Mormonism, is President of the
monogamie sect of Latter Day Saints
in Piano, Illinois. He claims to be
the recipient of direct revelations from
God, and the divinely chosen successor
of his father. He says of Brigham
Yeung: "He has been permitted to
amass vast wealth, sustaining himself
in an almost regal splendor. Out of
the monetary affairs of the church full
one-half cf all the distrust and want of
confidence has grown; and it has been ano; Scrofula, Masai Catarrh, etc. Pa

having been given of God was persis

the trust so reposed, where the inter
ests were so important and so irres
ponsibly placed have been betrayed. "
The Spiritualist newspapers ex
press delight because the Czar of Rus
sia consults with mediums. The Rev.
Thomas Colley, a clergyman of the
Established Church of England, is
coming to America for the purpose of
investigating Spiritualism. Perform
ers are giving exhibitions in Utica,
showing how materializations imry be
produced, and business with "William
Eddy, of the Eddy Brothers, who is
living in that city, is dull. The Ga
zette, of Onawa, Iowa, tells of a house
in that place wherein lires have been
set by "invisibles." If put out in one
part it breaks out in another. This
has been going on at intervals for sev
eral months, and twice the family has
moved out. A Spiritualist doctor in
Philadelphia describes a death-bed
scene, in which those assembled while
singing a hymn, had their spiritual
eyes opened and saw the "dead broth

joining his wife and child and floating

dom is of serious import. Owing to
the decrease of the native population,
employers have been compelled to re
sort to such labor markets as were
open to them. If it were possible to
procure Polynesian laborers, they
would be welcomed by the Hawaiian
people, because they are of the same
blood and race as ourselves. My gov
ernment has been ceaselessly active in
trying to procure a congenial emigra
tion to the kingdom, .and if the suc
cess has not been equal to the wishes,
the efforts were laudable and noble. I
wish my race to live and perpetuate
themselves. I wish to see the old na
tive legend about the children playing
along the highway practically realized.
I wish to see realized the old legend
about the old men and the old women
rejoicing over the pride of the young
manhood and the young womanhood
of the nation. If fate means to blot
out of existence the Hawaiian race, I
shall war against fate to the last hour.
No, we must not perish."
Dr. J. C. Ayer remains in an asy
lum in Athol, Mass., an incurable
maniac. A correspondent of the
Rochester Democrat says he is at times
very violent, and others quiet to a de
gree that indicates softening of the
brain. The same writer gives the fol
lowing as facts: Ayer came to Lowell
a poor adventurer, and obtained em
ployment in a factory, where his ser
vices as a chemist gave him good
wages. He was economical and saved
money. Then he became acquainted j
witn a druggist who sold a cough med
icine which was very popular. Ayer
obtained the recipe and advertised the
medicine freely. His agents spread
, i ... . - . i
rapidly through the country, and Aver '
, ., . ..
built up an immense trame. Me kept j
his profits secret, but his frequent in
vestments indicated rapidly growing
wealth. He became one of the largest
cotton mill proprietors in Lowell, and
the largest owner of bank stock. In
vestments were also made in other
places, in order to avoid notice and
prevent that rush for charity which so
often follows the increase of wealth.
This absorbed the entire energies of
the proprietor until he was ordered by
his physician to go to Europe. He
escaped from domestic trouble by be
coming absorbed in business- to such
an extent as to destroy the balance of

EST'Stearns' ideas are decidedly
correct. In his Gazetteer he says:
"The AVallamet valley is that part of
the country which lias given the
'wet' currency circulating through
the states concerning Oregon. The
gentle showers of winter there are
far more preferable to the freezing
winds and chilling snows of the west
ern states, while the temperate sum
mer, warm enough for vegetation
cool enough for comfort, make it the
paradise of the world. It is an old
country, sparsely settled, to be sure,
but the land is all owned by families
who have held it for twenty-five
years, or their successors. Every
necessity and comfort of civilization
is enjoyed by the people with the ad
vantage of certain crops and large
yields, longer seasons for cultivation
and an equal price for produce.

a most des-irnbic mode of transacting a
credit business. Try it.
