TUESDAY MA"C11 IS. 16S4
FUN IN LOGAN'S CAMP.
The Chicago News' "Washington
special says: It is worth a trip to
Washington to see Logan run his
boom. He may never get nearer to
the presidency than 812 Twelfth
street, but he is having more fun than
an alderman at a Dutch picnic. The
colored boy who tends the door at
Logan's boarding-house has a wear
ied look, and well he may, for he lets
in president-makers by hundreds.
Many of these are strangers and
they mount the stairs with fear
and trembling. They feel as if
they were about to be shot
till they meet ilrs. Logan or Mrs.
Tucker, who has much of her mother's
suavity, and they recover themselves
and thaw out like frozen apples in a
bakery. They shake hands with
John and he fixes them with his glit
tering eye and then turns them over
to his able lieutenants the ladies
who complete the capture. There is
no man here who looks more like a
statesman than Logan, but he wants
to keep silent When John opens
his mouth he is liable to put his foot
in it, but Mrs. Logan how ahe can
draw the politicians!
"Thunder and lightning!" exclaim
ed a man from Nebraska, who had
just made a call at Logan's residence,
'isn't she a buster? I never saw a
woman in my life who could say so
much in a minute and say it as slick
as she can. 'And what do you think
of the General? says she; Tm awful
sorry, Mr. Pillsberry, that you didn't
bring you wife with you.' By
gosh! how'd the old woman look,
d'ye think, side such magnifi
cent high-talkin' woman as Mrs.
Logan? Oh, I am fur Lcgan. Why,
when she shook hands with me and
said, 'I hope you'll remember the
general out there,' says I, 'You can
yoke me with a red steer and hitch me
to a breakin' plow, if I don't do just
that very thing,' and you bet I wilL"
At El Paso Mexican dollars are
worty eighty-five cents in American
coin. At Paso del Norte, just across
the river, American dollars are worth
eighty-five cents in Mexican coin
One morning a car driver started
from the American side with a Mexi
can dollar. On his arrival in the
Mexican town he took a drink of
chain lightning, which was fifteen
cents, and received an American dol
lar in change for his Mexican. On
his return to the American side he
took a drink of equally bad liquor,
and received a Mexican dollar for
his American, and so repeating the
drinks at intervals during the day
and at night he closed up his busi
ness with the Mexican dollar he
started with in the morning.
The Boston Herald indulges in
sense and sarcasm in the following
paragraph: The last pension bill
goes back and rakes up not -merely
all who suffered, but all who served
in the Creek, Black Hawk and Semi
nole wars. It would not involve more
than 6100,000,000. This bill, taken in
connection with Senator Blair's which
provides for pensions for the soldiers
of future wars, completes the compre
hensive system, unless some ingeni
ous congressman thinks to bring for
ward one more bill to pension all
persons whe were living at the time
of any war. We are inclined to
think that the pension business as an
lectioneeriug dodge has gone far
Of course there is such a thing as
Queen's English. Here is a speci
men from Victoria Begina's late work
on the Highlands of Scetland: "Im
mediately after this we came upon
the bridge, and Loch Tay, with its
wooded banks, clear and yet misty,
burst into view. This again reminded
me of the past of the row up the
loch, which is sixteen miles long, in
1842 in several boats, with pibroohs
playing and the boatmen singing wild
Gaelic songs." Attention is directed
to the convoluted, involuted condi
tion of the last sentence. They talk
and write nearly as good English as
this "out West"
The annual rainfall in this country,
according to the Weathtr Signal, is
lowest in New Mexico j(13 inches) and
California (18 inches), and highest in
Oregon (49) and Alabama (5G). The
annual rainfall in the British Islands
among the mountains is 41 inches; on
the plains, 23 inches; 45 inches of
rain falls on the west side of England,
and 27 inches on the east side.
A sisguiiAB accident happened
lately in a mill at Nashville. Teun. A
workman was thrown toward a circu
lar saw, and thinking he would strike
it died from fright When picked up
he was deal, but there was no sign of
a bruise on his both.
It was found necessary to prove
the marriage of an old lady in Maine
the other day, and after a little
search three credible witnesses were
produced who testified that they
were present at her weddiug sixty
three years ago.
A leading: member of the New
York Prison association says there
are over 50,000 persons now confined
in jails in New York state, and ho
olaims that one man out of every
eventy-flve met with in the city is a
An inspired idiot who edits, prints
and utters a sort of El Mahdi news
paper at Leavenworth, Kan., having
been accused of the moderate and
delicate offense of Free-Lovism, re
sponds in this frantic style:
We don't believe in Free-Love, nor
any other kind of sex-love. We not
only believe in the doctrine of Mal
thus but we would go much further
and apply that doctrine to all men,
all women, and ring the curtain down
on the tragedy of life -letting it
cease and cease forever with the gen
erations of to-day.
This sounds like the melancholy
outpouring of an impassioned Soul
about eight weeks behind wilh its
A New Yorker says: "We will
cast nearly 1,400,000 votes this falL I
think the straight Democrat voters
outnumber the straight .Republicans
by from 20,000 to 25,000 votes. But
we have in New York state from 75,
000 to 100,000 independent voters, not
tied to any party, who vote each year
as they think the occasion warrants.
It is to this class that we must ap
peal in our nomination if we wish to
be sure of getting the ekctoral vote
of New York."
Since Germany has locked out the
American hog, the patriotic American
youth no longer buys the German ac
cordeon. Importations of that dul
cet instrument, it is reported, have
largely fallen off of late.
Of all absurd spectacles, quite the
most absurd recently witnessed is
that of the Illinois office-holders go
ing whining to the president to ask
if they would be protected against
Logan if they chose to work for
Two Republican workers in Bhode
Island have been convicted of buy
ing vo.tes at $2 each in the state elec
tion last year. The attorney-general
who prosecuted them was on the
ticket for which they bought votes.
A western man has struck out in
a new business. He goes from town
to town offering to discover taxable
property omitted from the assessment
rolls, taking as his pay twenty per
cent of the taxes collected thereon.
A FiFTEEN-year-old girl who eloped
recently from her home in Detroit
said, as one of her reasons for so do
ing, that she wanted to be young
enough, when her golden wedding
came around to enjoy it.
Contents of a house which was
levied on by a bailiff of Blakely, Ga.,
one tin pan, two tin plates, one broken
tray, one broken spider, one looking
glass, one pair of tongs, two guns and

The New York Sim says: Regard
for the exact truth obliges us to
record the fact that at tlie present
time James G. Blaine leads all other
candidates for the Republican nom
ination. Pbesidext Taylo'r of the Mormon

they will find 100,000 muskets point
