Few people are aware, says an ex
change, that the proud boast that the
sun never sets on the British empire
is equally applicable to the United
States. Iustead of being the western
limit of the Union, San Francisco is
only about midway between the
farthest Aleutian Isle, acquired by
onr purchase of Alaska, and East
port, Me. Our territory extend
through 197 of longitude, or 17"
more than half way round the globe.
When the sun is giving its final
gleam to our westormost isle, on the
confines of Behring's sea. it is already
flooding tho fields and forests of
Maine with its morning light, and in
the eastern part of the state is more
than an hour hish. At tho very mo
ment when the Aleutian fisherman,
warned by tho approaching shades of
night, is pulling his canoe towards
the shore, the wood-chopper of Maine
isbeginning to make tho forest echo
with tho sound of his ax.
Somo ingenious persons havo given
a meaning to the location of postnge
stamp3 on a letter. For example,
they say that when a stimn i3 invert
ed on the right-hand upper corner it
means that the person written to is
to write no more. If the stamp be
placed on the left-hand upper-corner
and inverted, then the writer declares
his affection for the receiver of the
letter. When the stamp is in tho
center of tho top it signifies an affirm
ative answer to a question, or the
question, as the case may be; and
when it is at the bottom, or opposite
this, it is a negative. Should the
stamp be on tho right-hand corner, at
a right angle, it asks the question it
the receiver of the letter loves the
sender, while in the left-hand corner
it means that tho writer hates the
other. There i3 a shade of difference
between desiring one's acquaintance
and friendship, for example: the
stamp at tho upper corner on the
right expresses the former, and on the
lower left-hand corner means the lat.
ter. TJje learned in this language re
quest their correspondents to accept
their love by placing tho stamp on a
line with the Burname, and the res
ponse is made, if the party addressed
be engaged, by placing the stamp in
the Bame place, but reversing it. Tho
writer may wishto say farewell to his
sweetheart, or vico versa, and does so
by placing tho stamp straight up and
down in the left-hand corner. And so
on to the end of tho chapter.

The Fourth ut MishawaLa.
Mishawaka, July 5th.
I will tell you how we celebrated
tho Fourth. There were about sixty
five gathered at the school house, and
as our entertainments aro scarce, out
here and the Fourth of July only
comes onco a year, every one went
with the intention of enjoying them
selves and trying to have fun enough
to last through hay harvest, and I
think they succeeded.
About eleven o'clock tho school
children, uuder tho teacher. Miss
Sophia Gronnell, formed outside and
marched into tho school honse,
where their songs, declamations and
dialogues wore well rendered. Somo
of the others read essays. Tho Dec
laration of Independence was read,
a few remarks were made by W. A.
Wherry (some of tho babies cried
with a good share of patriotism while
the declaration was being read).
We all went out to a grove where
a tablo had been prepared, and it
seemed that the ladies were vieing
with each other to see who could fur
nish the most victuals and who made
the best pies and cake, and who would
succeed in getting their supply di
minished first. You may bet some of
us done good service wheu it come to
that; aud if every one did not get
enough to eat it was because thoy
wero afraid of a shower of rain.
After dinner wo nil amused our
selves with swinging and croquet and
other games, and driuking lemonado.
We did not have anything stronger
visible. After a pleasant dancing
party and somo fireworks in tho even
ing, wo all went homo wishing tho
Fourth come oftener.
Bolting has begun. It is never too

It will bo seven months before tho
electqral fouut by congress next Feb
ruary wL"")h will finally decide the re
sult of the pending presidential con
test. But for all that a great deal of
money has been put up to bo idle
during that period. Of course thee
is no argument in a wager, but there
is excitement in it. It is a good way
to express one's confidence and there
is the chance for 'gain, hence a resort
to it In every conceivable form,
from chnrch fair to horso race and
from strawberry festival to pooling
booth. However, I hear that repre
sentative Woodburn of Nevada is on
tho rampage and offers to bet a thous
and dollars on each state that Cali
fornia, Nevada and Oregon will go
Republican next November. I nlso
hear that senator Bowen has an opin
ion that he is ready to back up with
810.000, 1 understand he will select ten
northern states including Connecticut.
New Jersey and New York, and
place a thousand dollars on each one
of them with an ndditional'one thous
and on tho general result. As
a matter of course ho is a Harrison
man and on the other haad Dockcry
is ready to make large sums of money
talk for tho Democracy, and so it
goes. 11 asJtington Special.
At Uoss Opera Ilonse To-night.
The nicks-Sawyer Colored Min
strels made a very attractive display
ou tho streets yesterday and from
the pleased expression of those who
witnessed tho performance, thoy must
havo made a good display there also.
They give a very nice entertainment,
thoir singing being specially good,
while their dancing, fancy military
drills and funny business are equal
to anything of the kind ever seen
here. For somo reason there seems
to be a special charm about their
work which is not possessed by white
minstrels. Already there is a large
advance sale for the week. Last
night tho honso was packed. Pitts

What is this "nervous trouble" with
which so many seem now to be af
flicted? If you will remember a few
years ago the word Malaria was com
paratively unknown, to-day it is as
common as any word in the English
language, yot this word covers only
the meaning of another word used by
our forefathers in timos past. So it
