The stale press is discussing the
prohibition question in an intelligent
manner. The subject has been writ
ten upon so much that it seems hard
ly possible to think of anything new
to say about it The whole thing,
boiled down, seems to be a matter of
theory vs. practice and experience.
Some of the advocates of prohibition
appear to be in earnest. With others
of them it appears to be "a good
enough Morgan till after the elec
tion." Some of the young ladies of Walla
Walla have formed an association
the cardinal principal of which is a
refusal to allow the privilege of their
company to any young man who uses
tobacco or liquor in any form. Some
of the young men of that burg have
formed a subsequent association,
wnich has for its keystone the intent
to ignore the existence of any girl
there who use3 bangs, bustles or cos
metics. The question is whether it
will be a boycott or a girl caught.

The Salt Lake Democrat says tho
experience of a large number of Cen
tral Pacific west bound passengers
last Saturday, is not apt to help the
ticket scalpers in their present boom
in cheap fares across the country.
The detectives on the train took up a
large number of low rate tickets
which had been purchased of ticket
scalpers, and after proving that the
holders were not the parties who had
bought the tickets originally from the
railway people, they insisted in every
case- on the passengers paying fall
fare. The detection was accom
plished by getting tho passengers to
sign their names, and then by com
parison with the original signature
of the ticket purchaser.

Capt. J. M. Frazier, was an officer
on the ex-U. S. light ship Shubrick,
on the trip from Philadelphia to this
coast He was also an officer on the
steamer Central America (originally
tne old ueorge Law, known to all
New Yorkers) when she was wrecked,
the captain also orossedthe plains in
1819, but had returned east previous
to having had the two former adven
tures. In connection with the loss
of the Central America the old gen
tleman relates a very strange circum
stance which brought about the res
cue of the remaining passengers of
the ill-fated steamer, the captain of
which named Herndon, was drowned
at that time. It seems some Norwe
gian barque was sailing in the vicin
ity, but not iu sight of tho wreck,
when her captain, who was taking his
watch on deck, was hit in the face
by a "booby." It hit him a third
time, and he struck it with his hand
and it fell to the deck. This he con
sidered as a warning, and at that mo
ment the mate coming to relieve him,
he was told of the ciroumstance. The
captain pointed to the disabled bird
and remarked that some one was in
distress near them, and for the mate
to alter the course of the ship. This
was done and before many hours the
wrecked people were picked up. On
enquiring of the captain his reasons
for believing the accident to the bird
was a warning, he said that such an
accident had occurred to his father
with a like result, and, like most sail
ors he believed in signs, and, as it re
sulted, he thanked God he did. Cap

What Jacob Sharp didn't know has
its parallel in the case of a man at
Columbus, Ohio. The lawyer asked,
"What did you say to your wife about
tho matter?" "Don't remember."
"Was she home that day?" "Can't
say." "Did you see her that week?"
"Can't recollect." "Have you seeu
her this year?" "Can't say. The
fact is, I don't keep a diary, and I
never try to remember anything over
night" "Are you a married man?"
persisted the lawyer. "Eh? Married?
I wouldn't like to answer that with

General Pope was made captain in
1856, and served as such until 1861,
when he was made brigadier-general
of volunteers. In March, 1862, he
was made major-general of volunteers,
and in July briga3ier-general in the
regular army. On the 26th of Octo
ber, 1882, he was created a major-general
in the regular army, and as such
has served up to this date. He was
brevetted first lieutenant in 1816, for
"gallant and meritorious conduct in
the several conflicts at Monterey,
Mexico; captain in 1847, for the same
character aud conduct in the battle
of Buena Vista, and in 1865 a major
general for gallant and meritorious
services at the capture of island No.
10," in the Mississippi river. His
war record was a good one, and his
services earned the gratitude of every
lover of the TJnion cause.
General Pope contemplates living
in Cincinnati and making that city
his future home. His pay 33 retired

By the way, let me tell you about
the jersey the close-fitting sack,
you know. Tho Princess of Wales
has an exceedingly good figure. She
wants novelties, of course, like other
ladies: and ona snrincr w murln hr
a jacket of finely-knitted silk, frogged
or oraiuea wungoiu across tne iront.
It made a sensation. None of the
other ladies knew what it was, nor
could exactly make it out. She said
she liked it very much, and she ie
ceiyed from me a promise not to
make another like it in a year. Very
well. In a month or two I was over
on the Prince's yacht at Cowes, and
he came and sat down by me and
turned the talk on ladies' gowns. I
aw something was on his mind, and
I wondered what he was going to
say. "That close jacket fits the
Princess beautifully," was what it
ttas. Of course, "I expressed my
groat pleasure. "And I wish you
would make one more," he suggested
at last. I told him my promise to
her highness. "Yes," said he,
laughing, "I know; but I will take
the responsibility, and will make it
all right with her. It is for Mrs.
Langtry." We made the garment,
aud it was such a success on its
wearer that we called it the "jer
sey." Since then millions have
been made, all the wav from $100
apiece to 25 cents.

A great yellowish white speck low
down in the distant horizon ahead is
tho first sight one sees of Pittsburgh.
That speck is a flame forty or fifty
feet long and half as wide. It is the
advertisement of a gentleman's fur-nishing-goods

The enterprising brothers who keep
the store had a figure of " Liberty

thisgreat balloon-shaped blaze sways
and pulsates in the wind all night
roaring like a giant's furnace. Just
so the river side is illuminated by
two great flames that jut from ordi
nary little tubes sticking out of Do
Quesne Heights. It is wonderful to
see the wind catch one of these
masses of flame and wrestle with it
and bear it down and roll it over and
bite great yellow and white pieces
from it and fling it away, patches of
fire that look as if they were going

gas carries no odor with it. You
cannot detect its presence even when
the air is laden with it. It leaks

penetrates to the cellars of near
houses. Several time3 it has hap
pened that a resident has gone down
in tho cellar of his house to look
for something, has lighted a match
there, and has seemed to become the
center of a convulsion of nature
