One of the most curious customs
that attract the attention of strangers
in Panama is to see the native women
walking along the streots smoking
long, slender cigars, in much the
same fashion as men do here.
Mb. Cabii Schubz is to receive a
contribution of S100,000 from his
personal and political friends. -We
are glad of thisr but we think men
oould be found who would betray
their party and break a newspaper
for half the money.
A New Yobk dealer, who does most
of the -importing from Europe, claims
to have handled about 17,000 cases
during the year ending March 1, or
say 1,000,000 dozen eggs. These eggs
are collected at .Hamburg and Copen
hagen from all over Europe. .
The Panama canal will not be
straight or of uniform width; the gen
eral width willJbe about fifty yards,
with expansions along the line to per
mit vessels to pass one another with
aase. The cut at the deepest point
will b nearly 150 to 160 yards deep
and 300 vards wide.
The Chicago Journal of Com
inwce estimates that we have now
in this country about 350,000 manu
facturing establishments, employing
nearly 0,000,000 laborers, with $4,500,-
000,000 invested, and our manufact
ured products amount to $8,000,000,
030 a year, or more than $2,000,000,
030 more than those of Great Britain.
Es-CdNOUEiSMAK Pierce, of Indi
ana, bays there is no doubt about
Blaine's popularity in his state, or his
ability to carry it and New York also.
Kepublican prospects in Indiana, Mr.
Pierce believes, are better now than
thev were in 18S0, because the tariff
issue will be brought forward earlier
in this campaign than it was four
Tre white sails of the Columbia
salmon fleet gleam in the sunshine.
However wo may differ on politics
and other questions, wo an all agree
that the Columbia river -salmon is a
splendid institution, that his presence
is an assurance of tangible property,
that baked, roasted, fried, broiled or
canned ho is without compare; that
he appreciates the delicate attention
we all show him is manifest by the
eagerness with whioh he forsakes the
ocean and hastens to our hospitable
Capt. Bullock, who was sent to
Europe by the Jeff Davis govern
ment to raise a fleet of pirate vessels
for the purpose of preying upon the
ooinmerce of the United States, has
just published a book giving the his
tory of his operations. He did his
work very well, it will be remem
bered, and his account of it is said to
be quite interesting. The book ought
to have a large sale in England,
which country had to pay us some
$15,000,000 on account of Captain
Fbanoe has, among European coun
tries, the largest percentage of
electors, namely, 26.85 in every 100
inhabitants; Switzerland stands
second, with 22.55; then Germany,
with 20.09; and Denmark, with 15.46.
England is fifth, with 8.83. It thus
appears that the franchise in England
at present is more limited than in not
only republics like France and
Switzerland, but also monarchies
such as Gennany and Denmark.
Speaking generally, twenty persons
have votes in Germany and fifteen in
Denmark for every eight in England.
A. WE3TEBX friend of Mr. Tilden

Sage "would not, could not, take the

Sir. Payne, of Ohio. Physical dis

beautiful carriage in the country, be

trotters on the road? Is he not build

New York? And is he not waiting

leap-year proposal from his fair
countrywomen? Mr. Tilden should

A story from Connecticut of a boy
of twelve attempting suicide does not,
we are sad to say, represent an ipolat
ed case. Heavy as is the pressure of
the age upon its men and women,
and often as the weak turn in shud
dering despair from life drained of
pleasure, the young should be spared
the "insane resort for trifling ills.
Children nowadays think more deep
ly than in previous generations. A
thousand sources of information are
opan to them that their grand-parents
could not dream of in their early
years. Exaggerated ideas of their
own importance, scorn of their sur
roundings, or envy of the lighter lot
of other children are engeudored
where a century ago they could not
take root It is one of the penal
ties of modern progress. "While, there
fore, -whispered knowledge is
-ripening young minds at such a rate,
parents must remember to teaoh their
children.that only in the light of the
sun and the freshness of the dewy
breeze can sturdy plants be grown;

era life gg earnestness.
