The Jefferson Democratic Associa
tion" at "Washington has thus far
filed charges against 875 officials.
A Boston statistician says that $1
will buy as much of the necessaries
of life to-day as S1.50 in 1875, $1.32 in
1855, 01 cents in 1815, and 1.19 in
Jons C. Fremont, now seventy
two, says that he camped where Chi
cago is, where Minneapolis is, and
where Salt Lake City is, before there
was a house at either place.
The death of Grant is a serious
loss to the ghoulish caricaturist of
Puck who has always taken delight
in printing villainous pictures of the
old general and tried to make him
TnE Sixteenth Amendment, a pro
hibition paper, published in Buffalo,
has fixed things for 1S8S. This is its
presidential ticket for that year: For
president, Lucy "Webb Hayes; for
vice president, Elizabeth Cleveland.
TnE proportion of illegitimacy in
Chili is prodigious, exceeding 23 per
cent. In the United States it is less
than 7 per cent In Austria, lhe-Eu-ropoan
country which approaches
most nearly to Chili in this particular,
it is less than 13 per cent.
It is in the Pacific ocean that what
is probably the deepest water on the
surface of the globe has been found.
In latitude 11 deg. 21 min. north,
longitnde 113 deg. 16 min. east, En
glish scientific explorers dropped the
sounding line 1,575 fathoms, about
five and one-fifth miles.
Watermelon seed pools are the
newest style of gambling. Each
player puts in a quarter, or any other
sum agreed upon, and makes his
guess, then the melon is cut and the
seeds are counted, and the best guess
er takes tho pool. Something over
six hundred seems to be the average
A Frenchman has patented a pro
cess for making butter by passing a
current of electricity through milk,
thus rendering the operation of
churning unnecessary. A similar
method is to bo used for cheese mak
ing, and to restore ancient butter to
its original sweetness of flavor.
A senator recently was pressing
for an appointment, and finally said
to tho president that tho applicant
had been in "Washington since the
1th of March. Tho president is
represented as saying that if that was
the case ho did not want the man,
"because if he has been in Washing
ton since the 1th of March he's
Nobody thinks of the District of
Columbia as more pestilential in its
climate and surroundings than South
Carolina or Msssissippi with their
swamp miasma and epidemic fevers;
and yet census tables just published
show that the death rate is greater in
the District of Columbia than in any
state or territory in the union.
The chief of tho bureau of statis
tics reports that tho total value of
imports of merchandise during the
year ended June 30, 18S5, was 577,
176,850, a decrease of $90,220,813 com
pared with the preceding year. Ex
ports of merchandise for the year
ended June 30, 1885, were $711,893,
683, an increase of $13S,071 over the
The notice into which a London
newspaper has just come, bv its arti
cles on the moral depravity of the
great citj', makes it interesting to
know tho origin of tho name and the
paper. The words are pronounced
"Pell Mell," and were used to desig
nate an athletic game, in which a
ball is driven through an iron ring
with a mallet. It was played in the
neighborhood of St James parkin
the time of Charles II, and gave the
name to the celebrated street, Pall
Mall, Thackeray, in his "Pendennis,"
described an imaginary newspaper
under the name of The Pall Mall
Gazette. Years afterward tho pres
ent paper bearing that name was
started, thus perpetuating the fancy
of tho great novelist.
The originator and first builder of
an iron ship is living in New Orleans
in extreme poverty and old age. He
is Commodore "William H. Hunter,
formerly of the United States navy
and later of the confederate navy.
"While a lieutenant in tho old navy,
long before the war, he pressed the
subject of iron ships on the attention
of tho navy department in various
reports, and at last secured authority
of tho department to build an experi
mental vessel. This vessel was con
structed at Pittsburg in 1817. That
was the beginning of a change which
has converted half the navies of the
world into iron vessels. As has often
happened in such cases, Commodoro
Hunter received no profit from the
valuablo conception of which ho was
the author, and now that ho is old,
poor and broken down, tho world has
lost sight of him.
The New York Post of the 27th, in
speaking of tho decision to bury Gon.
Grant in Central park, says with can
dor and good sense: "Although his
son, Colonel Grant, has expressed a
desire for his interment in Central
park at the head of the mall, wo feel
sure that further consideration in
calmer moments would satisfy him,
as well as other members of the fami
ly, that a place of popular amusement
like the park, and particularly that
part of the park in which the baud
plays and lovers of amusement con
gregate, is hardly suitable. The fact
that the Soldiers' Home is on the
border lino botween tho north and
south gives it peculiar fitness as a
place of interment. The Soldiers'
Home is national in its character; it
is near to tho scenes of tho dead he
ro's greatest triumphs, both military
and civil; it is within sight of Arling
ton, that great bivouac of tho dead
where so many thousands of his com
rades lie; it is a memento of the first
war in which he took part; but most
of all it overlooks two great sections
of our common country, that claim
equal right to render homage at his
tomb. Tho claims of the nation are
superior to those of New York, and it
cannot be supposed that any wish of
tho dead chieftain would be opposed
to the desire of the whole nation to
have a share in the testimonial tho
perpetual testimonial to his great
ness." NEW TO-DAY.
