That Occur in a Great City.
N. Y. Corn Philadelphia Record.
The public would le amazed to
learn bow many women tbere are in
a great city wbo do not know whether
their busbands are living or dead.
Tbe busbands suddenly disappear,
and that is all they know about it.
A few go to the police and give tbe
alarm; tbe many wait in silence, or
advertise covertly and send letters in
eveiy direction that in themselves re
veal nothing of their sorrow, in an
experience of thirty years in New
York there have conie to my knowl
edge many such inexplicable cases of
disappearance, iu which the story lias
been told on condition that it should
lie kept out of print. Une man, a
traveler for a drv goods house, disap
peared for thirty years, and suddenly
turned up in Ins wife s liome in .bank
street, where she had been living
with another husband for twenty
years. He saw her but once, and
then went to see his infant boy, then
a man grown and married, and then
disappeared ase came. Outwardly
he bore all the signs of prosperity,
but revealed nothing about himself
except that he had bten n "Tolling
stone," and could not stay contented
anywhere. Happily his reappearance
did no harm and no good. Curiosity
alone seemed to have prompted him
to return and discover the fate of the
loving yonng wife he had left behind.
Once I boarded for months at the
house of a well-couuected widow lady
of mature years before I learned that
her husband had disappeared one
bright summer afternoon from his
place of business in South street, and
was supposed to be dead. A patient
search for three years had revealed
nothing. Uut the man was not dead.
Business did not go to suit him. and
he suddenly thought it would bo best
to Jeave everything m the hands of
his sons andgo away, at the age of
GO, io seek his fortune. He intended
to return when ho had "made his
pile." But fortune wae unfavorable,
juid after wear' wanderings ho could
find nothing better to do than to
drive a horsecar iu a neighboring
city. Homesickness impelled him to
return in the hope of catching a
glimpse of his family, after which he
intended to go back to his work. A
friend paw him, had him arrested as
a lunatic, and then the wife aud
daughters persuaded him to come
back home. It was just in time, for
within a year he died, and the sunset
of his life was very pleasant. This
was the tragedy of a man who had
no evil habits, and had never been
absent a night from home unless his
family knew where he was.
A prominent and successful busi
ness man here owes all his succes to
his wife. "When a young married
man he disappeared from a coast
steamboat, and everybody except his
wife thonght him dead. She believed
otherwise, aud traced him up for five
years, until she found him traveling
for a Philadelphia house. She
brought him back, started him again
iu uusiuu&s, waioueu wiiu nun anu
for him night and day. and built nn
his fortune to a pitch he had never
expecteJ. More than this, she man
aged to so bridge over his absence
that none outside of the immediate
family knew of his escapade, for she
took herself away from her friends
and from communication with them
until she had found and restored
These are only three incidents out
of many that have come to mv knowl
edge, and go to show that the record
of mysterious disappearances would
be marvellously abbreviated it the
entire truth were told. The fire in
the Brooklyn theatre, which caused
the death of more than 100 victims.
was me occasion ior the sudden dis
appearance of a number of persons
who wished to be thought dead, and
the later crush on the Brooklyn
bridge was followed by the report of
quite a number of 'missing" ones,
some of whom were forced to turn
up alive again under rather rid icnlous
circumstances. Very few people are
spirited away by the crimiual classes,
nnd it is always safe for a wife to
look for her husband on some one of
the lines of travel. In manv cases
they do not care to look for the miss
ing domestic link. It is usually the
black sheep who seeks fresh fields
and pastures new.
The Names of .Natioiw.
These are derived principally from
some pecnliar cause or object For
instance, Ireland which Julius Caj
sar first called Hibernia is a kind of
modification of Erin, or the country
of the "West.
Scotland from Scotia, a tribe which
originally came from Ireland. It was
anciently called Caledonia, which
means a mountainous country for
ests and lands.
Portugal, the ancient Lusitania,
was so named from a town on flo
River Douro, called Cale, opposite to
wnicn the inhabitants built a city
called Porto or Oporto. Aud when
the country was recovered from th
Moors the inhabitants combined Hi
words and called it the Kingdom of
.rorracaie nence ortugaL
Spain, the ancient Iberia, from the
River Iberia or Hispania. from th
Phoenician Spaniga, which signifies
abounding with rabbits, which ani
mals are very numerous in that coun
try hence Spam.
France from the Franks, a neonle
of Germany, who conquered that
country. Its ancient name was Cel
ta, Gaul or Gallia-Bracchata, the
latter signifying stripped breeches,
which were worn by tho natives.
Switzerland the ancient Helvitin.

Dutch from the German (teut.srh or
Sweden and Norway were auciently
called Scandinavia, jvhicb tbe motf

pellation Sweden "iss&derived from

Prnssia, from Peuzzi, a Sclavonic
race; but some writers suppose it
took its name from.Eussia, and the
.Sclavonic syllable po, which means
adjacent to or near.
Denmark means the marches, ter
ritories or boundaries of the Dana.
.Russia is the ancient Samartia,
which has been subsequontlv named
I nsc0Yy. It derived its " present
name from Itussi, a Sclavonic tribe
who founded the Russian monarchy.
The original savage inhabitants used
to paint their bodies in order to ap
pear more terrible in battle. They
generally lived in the mountains, and
their chariots were their only habi
tations. Turkey took its name from the
Turks or Turcomans, which signifies
the wanderers, and originally be
longed to the Scythians or Tartars.
It is sometimes called the Ottoman
Empire, from Othoman, one of thoir
THE POSSIBILITIES OF FUSION.
The Democrats and Greenbackers
of Iowa have determined to run one
electoral ticket, divided between the
two parties in proportion to the num
ber of voters in each. This division
gives the Democrats seven electors
and the Greenbackers six. If the fu
sion ticket should be elected the en
tiro vote of the state would be lost to
the Republicans, and Ben Butler
would havo at least six electoral
votes. Such n result in Iowa might
throw the election into the House of
Representatives. A popular impress
ion seems to prevail to some extent
that the House to be eleoted this fall
will have the choosing of a President,
should tho people fail to make a
choice. A moment's reflection will
show that the House now in existence,
which will remain in existence until
the 4th of March, the day the Presi
dent must bo inaugurated, is the one
destined to elect a President m the
event of a failure by the people. The
House to be elected this fall does
not meet by law until December, 18S5.
If the policy of fusion shall be con
tinued in other slates tho door will
bo open for some new departures in
American politics. Up to tho pres
ent time electors havo voted as they
were instructed. "While the jpowea
remains with tho electors to vofe)as
they please, the custom haslheeh to
vote for the candidate nominated by
the National Convention of the party
who nominated them as electors, it
a Democratic elector should vote for
the Republican Presidential candi
date, or if a Republican elector
should vote for a Democratic Presi
dential candidate, the act would be
regarded as an infamous betrayal of
trust. If tho election should be
throwu into the house by a fusion
between two minority parties in sev
eral states, the question of duty pre
sented to the electors would contain
some elements not often held under
consideration. For example, let us
suppose that a Democratic and
Greenback fusion in Iowa, Massa
chusetts and Michigan should result
in the election of the fusion electoral
ticket in each of these states. These
are states usually counted for Blaine,
and the loss of them would most
probably throw the election into tho
House. But what would tho Green
back party conceive it their duty to
do under such conditions? Their
right to vote either for Blaine or
Cleveland would be undispnted.
AVhat could they do without viola
tion of trust, as men of honor having
the best interests of tho country at
heart?- The straight and easy course
for them to pursue would be" to cast
their votes for Butler, the nominee
of their party. But in so casting
their vote they would throw the elec
tion into the House, where the Dem
ocrats have a majority of the state
delegations. In the House their can
didate would stand no possible chance
of election. He would not even re
ceive a vote in the House, as in the
election for President each stato
votes, as a unit and is controlled
by a majority of its delegation. It
becomes clear, therefore, that if tho
Greenback electors, in case neither
candidate has a majority without
them, cast their vote for the Green
back candidate they would make
the election of the Democratic can
didate by the House reasonably sure.
"We can easily imagine the pressure
which would, in such a condition of
affairs, be brought upon the Green
back electors to cast their votes so as
to eleot the candidate of either of the
other two parties as might be pre
ferred by a conference of tho party.
"We are only supposing a condition
of things which may happen and a
course of action which Avould involve
uo dishonor. If we should extend
our speculation to the possibilities,
there would be no end to the contin
gencies which might arise or bo
pointed out as likely to arise.

says he has used St Jacobs Oil, tho
great pain-cure, in rheumatism and
neuralgia and found that it is all that
it is represented to be.
