'What Causes Lynching.
The papers 5ji the eat are all
Tery much worked up over the
first lynching: that ever took place
in Pennsylvania. They arc loud
in their demands that tiie farmers
who did the lynching hould be
punished. Snyder, the man lynch
cd, brutally killed two respectable
people as they slept, and left three
helpless children orphans. He
acknowledged the crime. There
are other circumstances connected
-irith the deed that make it one of
the most atrocious tragedies on
record. Of course lynching is
wronir, but it is the trickeries of
law that make lynching common.
A recent Nebraska paper says in
referring t discharge's of murder
ers on technicalities: "It is not a
little singular that all these de
cisions are made practically to
favor the vicious and the criminal.
There is not one, we venture to
say, among all the decisions of our
Supreme-court, that has rendered
justice more certain or more decis
ive. These technicalities are. al
ways found to favor the side of
injustice always tend to override
equity are always found to shield
acknowledged criminals from the
just punishment of criminality.1'
This kind of thing will doubtless
make lynching more frequent out
in Nebraska. Ohio claims to be a
more law-abiding state than either
Pennsylvania or Nebraska. Cin
cinnati is the Paris of Ohio. In
the year just closed twenty per
sons were murdered in Cincinnati.
Have any of the murderers been
hung? Not one. Aie any of the
murderers in the penitentiary?
Just one; and he is a poor negro
who had mo money to get the
quibbles of law turned in his de
iense. Most of the others got free
on ley-al technicalities. There are
many people who think that if
these twenty had been lynched so
ciety would not. have been much
Progress in New Zealand.
New Zealand is making great
progress in "the cultivation of its
soil and in the introduction of for
eign plants. The government of
the colony has arranged for the
shipment this month of a number
of Japanese fruit trees, apple,
-orange and plum, and other trees
And shrubs. The temperature of
New Zealand is considered to be
so much like that of Japan that it
is hoped these fruit trees will
easily become acclimatized and
thrive well. There is some pros
pect, too, of making New Zealand
a. wine-growing country. Some
French vine-growers have decided
to plant a piece of land to the
Jiorth of Auckland as vineyard.
It is also proposed to introduce the
tea plant in the same district.
Some time ago the coloiry intro
duced a large number of English
sparrows and linnets, and made
special provisions for their protec
tion. Both sparrows and linnets
iave got on so well in New Zea
land and multiplied so rapidly that
the protection which has hitherto
heen extended to them has now
Abolishing the Pistol.
St. Louis Globe Democrat.
The legislature of Illinois will,
at its approaching session, be ask
ed to pass a law making it an of
fense to sell, give, hire or loan a
pistol or other deadly weapon to
anr minor. The enforcement of
such law would greatly reduce the
lists of crimes and accidents. A
general disarmament of Young
America is one of the needs of the
time. The small boy must be put
upon a peace footing.
The population of the United
States, on the first day of June last,
was 50,152,550. I f the ratio of in
crease from 1S70 to 1SS0 has been
maintained since June, the popu
lation of the union, on the iirst
day of January, 1SS1, was 51,005,
150. It is safe to set it down in
waound figures at 51,000,000.

The Eartli's Population.
Belnn and Wagner, in the last
edition of their book on the popu
lation of the earth, estimate the
entire population of the inhabited
globe at l,4.")C,O00,0OO persons.
Europe, without counting Iceland
and Nova Zembla, is believed to
have 315,929,000 inhabitants on an
area of 1 16,349.9 (iermau square
miles, or at the rate of 1,191 per
sons to the German square mile;
Asia is put down as having S34,
707,000 inhabitants, on S99,47S
square miles that is, 1,031 per
sons to the square mile; Africa, as
having 205,0?9,0i0 inhabitants, on
543,1 7S square miles, or 37S per
sons to the square mile; America,
as having 94,495,500 on G9 1,138.5
square miles, or 137 to the square
mile; Australasia, as having 4,031,
000, on 102,009 square miles that
is 24: persons to the square mile;
the Arctic regions are assumed to
have S2.000 inhabitants on S2,091
square miles, or about one person
to every square mile. The sum
total, as observed, is 1,455,923,500
persons, on 2,4 0,903.4 square
miles, or at the rate of 589 persons
on the German square mile. The
German empire comprises 9,S15.0
square miles, Avith a population in
1S7S of 44,210,94S persons.
Derivatisn of the Word Blizzard.
The derivation of the word ''bliz
zard" is not generally known. We
will elucidate: When one of those
superior creatures who inhabit Bos
ton enters his .'esthetic home on a
cold night he removes his cultured
muffler from his refined throat and
remarks: "The atmospheric ex
uberance ih antagonistic to the
preservation of caloric in the physi
ological structure," which, trans
lated, means, "it blows hard."
When a dejjeuerate Chicago man
returns home at 3 a. m. from a
chicken fight, after having ob
served the fall of the mercury and
several other things in liquid form,
he explains the state of the atmos
phere to the angry partner of his
joys as follews: "M'dearsh, bl'sh
':ird blard," after which he
encounters a blizzard froi his in
Nevr Year's Cards.
The practice of making New Year's
calls dates from a time immemorial
at least from time colonial when every
body knew his neighbor. The prac
tice of using New Year's cards is of
comparatively modern date. They
were first used in New Ycrk in 18G8-9.
Then the designs were not very elabo
rate, hnt the idea tk and soon after
became almost ttnivursal. Now a great
deal of artistic skill is lavished on the
cards and they can be purchased from
ten cents a dozen tip to $50 for a
single card. The latter price is paid
for choice liaud-paintcd cards, and are
not exteifcively used by the poorer
class of society. Some cauls are deco
rated or not as the case may be by
the portrait of the oilier. The photo
calling cards are very handy to recog
nize the owner by in case he cnlls too
often on the wine when it is red.

to inform their friends in the -state of

In something written we have anj
indistinct recollection of having made
reference to a general disposition
among boys in their teens, as well as '
boys of maturcr years, to enlighten I
ana bless the world with their pro-,
fmmd knowl8dge of the hone an his J
history. Our books and newsnaners i
are full of this kind of literature, and j
it varies in style From the production
of the child at school, commencing j
with; The horse hits four leys and ji .
tail; up to the eloquent tribute of tlie I
scholar when he quotes from Jeb: That
his neck is clothed with thunder and I
the glory of his nostrils is terrible. I
He smeileth the battle afar off, the
thunder of the captains and the
shouting. Between these two ex
tremes of the child at his first school
coiuNsitioii. and 'the professional
literature, we have every jrradeof pre
tention, and ench professing to have
mastered the whole subject. As we
approach the close of this nineteenth
century, we botn"n to look for some
thing better in this department of
knowledge front those who assume to
instruct " And it is to be found in
Kendalls Treatise on the horse, sent
by mnil to any person for twenty-five
