Jt is said that (he once groat cbess
player, Paul Morphy, is iu nn insane
oaylum. He utterly repudiates chew,
and denies having ever known anything
about it. Ho imagines himself a great
lawyer, surrouudod by cliontn, and is
busy at nil times settling an immense
estate left him by bis fathor. Tho legal
part of that information may explain
tho "insanity dodgo." Hut tho chess
repudiation caaU a cloud upou it. It
ia evident that ho ia ashamed of making
himself a profoaaionnl at an ntausotnont.
Kven a lawyer (much as tho news
psjiors abuse him) ia a better man than
a professional gamer. Mr. Morphy has
our congratulations on having como to
his senses, nnd our condolence for
UAying lost them. If ho bad attended
to his professiou, in tho days of his
youth, before tho evil day camo, or
tho years drew nigh when ho said, " I
havo no pleasure iu them," ha might
now Ihi a usofnl member of society.
To neglect a useful and honorable pro
fession for the sake of nu evanescent
notoriety in a calling that ia utterly
useless, except as a recreation, doci not
show satiily.
For aomo years past Mr. Morphy lias
bcou afllictcd with mental dernngemont
of n mild form, whioh haa been merely
ou aunoyanco to bis friouds, na they
havo been compelled to keen constant
watch of him to prevent his making
himself utterly ridiculous. It is plain
to those who know him. that his braiu
has lieon turned by tho iutcuso strain
which his wonderful success as a chess
player, aud tho great famo it brought
to him, occasiouod.
This insanity is a sorious thing to
him poor follow ; but it is valuable ss
teaching a lesson to others who are
wild about nmusomouts when they
ought to bo earnest about business. If
it required any brain to play baao ball,
or croquet, ur archery, it might bo n
waruiug to thoso. professionals nnd
their admirers. It ought to make

It may bo n selfish vlowof it, but, all
thlnga considered, will tho Unitod
BUte renp any benefit from a ship

Will it not bourdlt England moro than
u7 I'crhnps that is uo argument
against its construction; indeed, wo
hold that what will bonoilt the world at
largo must ovontually benefit tho Uni
ted tilatcs. Hat unless wo are to build
up our maritime interests ao us to Uko
tho procedenco on tho oa over nil othor
nations, Iho flrat effect of a canal across
Darlen might not provo odvanlagoons
to our commercial IntcresU. Doubt
less, if a practical route can bo found,
tho canal will bo built, but it is nothing
moro than common prudence to look at
tho question iu every light. The Suez
canal shortens the voyage from Eng
land to India by nino thousand miles,
yet tho fact that Uritisb OricnUl trade
has been injured by it to tho sdvanUgo
or tho great commercial cities of tho
Mediterranean tesliflca to tho foresight
of Lrd I'almerston whon ho opposod
it construction. Tbe Darion project,
on tho contrary, met with his approval,
and to-day appears to bo tho only ex
pedient which would enable England
io compete with France, IUly, Austria
and CousUutiuopIo f or iho future Ori
cnUl trade of Northora Europe. At
present not aa inconsiderable amount
of tho Oriental trade crosses tho Amer
ican continent by railway, paying a
handsome tribute to this country.
Iowa readers aro familiar with this fact,
at numerous car loads of less and othor
Asiatic products aro hauled across the
Bute nnd have long ceased to be objects
of curiosity nnd coiuHient.ln tho natur
al course of things this tmfllo ought to
increase. The Daiiou cabal would di
vert some of this traffic, and English
ships would coxpoto with American
veanels for tho trade of not only the
I'ocillo isloi but tbe western coast of
Booth America. Tho only relief from
this unhappy result would bo to foster
American sea commerce until our Hag
predominates iu all the waters of the
world, If tho Darion canal, by crcat
ing at once tho danger and too neces
sity, ahould contribute to bring all this
about, that which at tiist would be our

Insanity in the 1'oorhouse.
An article In tho Now York Times.
speaking of tho condition of the iuaaoe
iu tho county noor-house at By ,
brisgs to iad KMMrtisatksDB tfee
aanio subject, wnicu tuo lauxjiya bos
mado ami moro tuan once, heretofore,
lusanity is rarely a fault. It is gener
ally a misfortune. It cannot be called
a crime, and. consequently, it does not
call for punishment. Hut tho consign-
mout ol sucb unfortunates to couuty
almshouses instead ol to places made
expressly for them, Is a punishment,
and ono whioh is criminal.
People who have never seen the dif
ference between an insano asylum and
n jKor house cau hardly undersUnd
how great and sal that difference is.
No matter how much care tho manager
of a poor-house may Uko with these
people, ho ia not educated In regard to
their disease. However willing be may
be to ameliorate their condition, ho
don't know how to do it. They to
coivo but partial attention thcro. They
should be constantly watched, and
every odvauUgo taken to improve the
condition of their minds. This is a
labor that must be done by itself. Tho
only hope of recovery, or even of com
fort in insanity, lies in an almost con
stant occupation of tho mind during
waking hours. Hooks, musio, games,
aud other attractions must be cousUntly
resorted to. Iu a hospital for the in
sane tlioso things are furnished a a
matter of ueceaaity. In tho poor-house
they nro not furni&hid at all. There
tho mind and tho undy are both loafers.
This pernicious pmctico is now, un
fortunately, iu vokuo iu our owu SUto.
Tho reasuu givou for it is that our two
insane asylums aro imulequato. Tho
ofllcers of our asylums are uot responsi
ble for this, but our legislators are.
Tho public pay for tho support of these
people iu ouo place as won in tuo oth

is their prison. Provision should be

A story ia told of two Englishmen
who aturted from Denver, Col., for a
walk to tho mountains before breakfast,
au apparently easy task, aa the moun
tains did uot appear to be mora thau a
mile or two away. After walking for
an hour without scorning to havo mado
any progress toward tho desired goal,
ono of them became disoouraged, aud
ooucluded to return for his breakfast ;
afterward, bo took it carriage and went
in search of his friend, whom he found
ou tho bauk of a small ditch, engaged
iu removing his booU. His friend in
quired what ha intended to do ? He
replied, to wade the ditch, Ilia friend
said there was no necessity for that, aa
it was less than threo feet aoroaa, and
ho could easily jump it. ' You can't
toll auything about it iu thia country,"
responded tho othor ; " it may bo throe
hundred feet aoroaa for aught I kuow."

Who Owns the Land In England.
Moro than half tho soil of thoUnited
Kingdom is nominally owned by aomo
2.00U persons. According to a valua
ble anal) sis of tho very ill-arranged
and iucompleto parliamenUry return
of tho land-owners of tho Unitod King
dom, published iu tho Financial llt
furm Itecord for 1878, 421 persons ore
tho owners of 22,880,700 acres, or
nearly 5,000,000 acres more than one
fourth of thetoUl area of tho United
Kingdom. Tho nind is unablo to grasp
what such a monopoly costs tho country,
but cerUia features of it stand forth
with a prominonce sufficiently notable.
In a most absolute sonao, tho woll-bo-ing
of tho entiro population of aomo
32,000,000 souls is placed iu tho power
of a fow thousands. For these thou
sand tho multitude toils, and it may bo
on occasions sUrves. Hence it ia that
all through rural England wo havo con

that famous device against Tersla
tion, paid for by the middle classes
and tho pauper's grave. Our land
owner have not merely burdened the
land with thoir gams preserves; they
hare tied it up, and actively conspired
to prevent it due cultivation. Instead
of rising to the true necessities of the
case, they cling to their game, roako
penal enactmenU about it, and struggles
to augment the intensity of tbe evil
which it is to tho peoplo, as if the rcry
existence of ibe country depended on
hares and rabbits. Ill his abeoluto
supremacy tbe land-owner overrides
all justice, takes precedence of all or
dinary creditors on hi helpless tenanU'
esUtes, and control the system of cul
tivation, often in utter disregard of
private righU or private judgmont, and,
tn addition secures to himself tho ab
solute reversion of every improvement
which tho tenant may make on tbe land.

Children of One Father-

As he took the boy's bond ia his, aad
spoke to him earnestly of Christ's love,
several pale faces were raised from the
rows of beds that lined the ward on
either side, listening attentively, many
of them with eyes wet with tears.
"Lord, I believe 1" whispered the
dying man. Then the clergyman knelt,
praying that God might receive the
aoul of his departing brother. At the
bedside also knelt tbo Episcopalian
matron, two ltomau Catholic Sisters of

When tbo aovuu men imprisoned in a

read that the giant Ferragus, slain by
Orlando, nephew of the celebrated
Charlemagne, was 18 feet high. Fan
num, a Ucotcbman, who lived at the
time of Eugene II., King of Scotland,
measured 11 feet, and La Mare, in
hia voyage to the BtraiU of Magellan,
reporU tbat on tho 18th day of Decem
ber he found at Port Desire several
graves covered with stonos, and having
tbo curiosity to remove them he found
human skeletons 10 and 11 feet long.
Coming to mora reliable evidence, 11
seems cerUin that a height of even
more than uiuo feet has been attained.
In tbe museum of Trinity College,
Dublin, thoro is a Bkcletou eight feet
six inches in height. Iu tho museum
of tho Itoynl College of Burgeons of
England, is another eight feet two
inohes in height, and another in tho
museum of Honu eight feet The giant
who was shown in Rouen in 1835
measured eight feet four and one-half

In a naoor in Scribner on the Univor
sity of Berlin, Professor Hoyesou gives
the following sketch of the pertennil of
tut great pliysicitt :
As X have said, the strength of the
Berlin University lies chifley in tho
fact that it count so many great and
renowned men within IU faculty.
Am6ng these no ono is moro con
spicuous than Hermann Lndwitr. Helm-
holtz. urofeaaor of physics, of thorn it
is said, with justice, that he has mode
an epocli in every branch of science to
which he ha devoted himself. Ho U
a man of about fifty-seven, rather be
low middle Jieialit. and somewhat in
elined to stoutness. His faco is de
cidedly handsomo ; tho brow especially
of remarkable spaciousness and breadth,
and nil tho feature clearly modeled
and iu good proportion. Hia gravo
dark eyes express calm and keen ob
servation ; ttiey are undeniably a tnuo
cold, and probably judgo men with tho
samo merciless, mathematical exactness
with which they obserre other natural
phenomena. Ono can hardly imagine
a moro unsentimental, passionless faco,
snr a fitter face for a man of science.
Oce feeli. -at once that hia mcnUl at
mosphere tatibt be clear and bracing,
and nnobscured by fogs of sentiment.
I find also that in social circles Holm
holtz has tho reputation of being an
inUreMing-but a cold and unapproach
able man. However, tho students, who
work in his laboratory and thus come
into close conUct with him, cherish
tho profonndest respect and admira
tion for him. Ono of thorn, a young
American, who ha-i studied nhvsica in
Berlin for three years, told me that
during all thia time ho never remem
bered that tbo professor bod addressed
one personal question or remark lo
him, not even as much as a comment
upon tbo weather. Every morning.

The Iioxdos Cabmen. The Prince
of Wales lately presided at the anm &l
meeting of the London Cabmen's Ben
evolent, Association. The Prince de-
ed tbLiCH4ot eataaea to b " kon-
" thoroaghly deserving of sympathy."
"As a proof of that," said the Prince,
" I have aUtistics here before me which
state that last year there were between
sixteen and seventeen thousand articles
left in cabs, amounting in value to
about 20.000. which have be puna
tually returned. I believe at least, it
is the popular belief that ihere is only
one article a cabman never returns, ana
that isan umbrella, and that 13. we may
consider, quite fair. A gentleman hav
ing an umbrella may not want a cab.
bnt withont an umbrella lio will be
compelled to Uke a cab if the rain
comes on. (.Laughter.) There are
now between eleven thousand and
twelvo thousand cabmen, and tho
amount ofsthe expense in cab fares
comes to anost colowal sum, some
thing between 4.000,000 and 5.000.

New York lawyer thus tells how Presi
dent Pierce made au enemy of James
Gordon Bennett, the founder of the Now
York Herald:
I was in Pierce's room when Bennett
got his conge. Ha had been to Europe
and tried to get into society there, and
was given the cold shoulder. He made
up hia mind tbat he would control tho
United States government, and compel
Eugland to receive him. He came to
Washington boou after Pierce's elec
tion. When tho campaigu began he
favored Bcott, but turned about for
Pierce as soon aa he saw how things
wero drilling. After Pierce waa inaug
urated Bonuett came to Washington and
spent his money lavishly, and mado a
claim for tho English mission. The
Southern element declined to have any
thing to do with him. One morning,
when I won sitting with Mr. Pierce,
Bennett came in aud said, " Mr. Presi
dent, I insist on having un answer to
my petition." Pierca replied: "Mr.
Bennett, I will be uuablo to appoint you
to any oQlco whatever." From that
time forward the Herald published edi
torials headed, "Poor Pierce."
