Laeutoxk has met wide-awake,
!iarp-eyel men who have been cvery

Tor business at two in the morning or
t.j in the afternoon. They are
"drummers:" commercial travelers
cnt out to sell goods by sample, and

The lat Canadian rebellion whero
R:el aud his forces were quelled by
(Ten. MiJdleion and his Canadian
troops, furnishes a good illustration.

f r a Connecticut firm, showing off
its good, lie wants to sell the Can

aud he proposed to make it clear that
his house puts perfectly reliable goods
on ILe market. Other firms may sell
Tuns that won't shoot, or. ir they do

demonstrated not only that the Con
rectieui Galling -none reliable with
out the firm name blown in the
Icoech -would both shoot and hit.
"You observe gentlemen" ho may be

rolled over a few half-breeds, "that

that no house but ours can put such

The era of Democratic simplicity
has not fully returned. The presi
dent, in all his movements, evinces a
desire to avoid mixing with the com
mon herd, and takes every occasion
to shun the people, save when abso
lutely obliged to meet them. It was
announced, for instance, on Thurs
day, that he would leave for New
York at 10 o'clock at night, and n
email crowd gathered to see him, but
he left at 4 o'clock, and he did not
travel as other passengers do, in an
ordinary car. On the contrary, he,
with Secretaries Whitney and Endi
cott, took a private car, the property
of the vice-president of one of the
"bloated railway monopolies" Demo
cratic orators talk about
Sen'atok Blackbut.k, ot Kentucky,
i boiliug mad about the cancellation
or his brother's appointment as col
lector of internal revenue, and has
withdrawn all his recommendations
for other appointments and declared
to -Jr. Cleveland. 'You can do as you
d d please." The spectacle of a
statesman in anger is not pleasant;
but when the wrath in such a case is
accompanied by so complete and em
phatic a concession of the president's
right to freedom of action, it may be
said to serve a wholesome purpose af
JSekatok Vookiiee5; tays that Mr.
Cleveland told him that he intonded
to remove every Republican office
holder of any prominence at the very
earliest possible moment. "The pres
ident,' said the f-eualor, ''assured me
that not one of them would be left.
The only delay now would simply be
that which was absolutely necessary
to secure good men to put in their
places." There is to be a general
change, and the bulk of these changes
will come very soon.

Horse raising is a rapidly growing
