Cleveland 13 the Party’s Cboico.
Outside of New York there does not ap
pear to bonny opposition to Mr. Cleveland’s
re-nomination. In all the interviews with
prominent Democrats in different parte < f
the country which have appeared in puliiio
prints lately there has been but one senti
ment with regard to his re-nomination, and
that has been favorable. Tho Ohio Demo
cratic convention last week unanimously
and enthusiastically endorsed his aduiinin
trill ion, asi 1 it is reasonably certain that
••'cry oiber Democratic convention which
meets Ibis year will do tho Kimo thing.
Even the no bead Democrats, who, during
the first year of ike administration, had
only barr.h words for the President, now
piidur e him heartily, and freely exjircss
tiio oniitiou that tl:cro is no other man so
well It*tod am! ro crrtaiu to tend the party
to victory in 18SS.
Tr. New York citv there isa little hostility
to him, but it is nd of such magnitude as to
attract a groat deal of attention. There are
a few prominent Democrats there who pre
tend to think that Gov. Hili is the only
Democrat who van carry New York in
DCiS, and hence they improve every oppor
tunity to piece him before the public. They
have a grievance of some kind, and would
liko to see Mr. Cleveland beaten for per
sona! reason.'; nlono. They do not receive
any cnccuragonlent., however, and are ap
parontly about ready to acknowledge that
it is useless to ojipose Mr. Cleveland farther.
It is about certain that. Gov. Hill is not
looking towards the Presidency at present.
He understands the political situation too
well to oven hope to have his name men
tioned in tho next National Convention.
He is undoubtedly aiming at a second term
for Governor, and that there is every reason
to think he will get.
There are some who regard Mr. Cleveland
as only a lucky man, but those who have
had the best, opportunities to study him are
confident that lie is a statesman of fine
ability, and an extraordinarily shrowd pol
itician. For a man who had no experience
in national politics until lie went to Wash
ington he lias made very few mistakes,
indeed, he has made tio mistake that is
likely to ho remembered long. The opposi
l ion that ho encountered during the first
year and a half of his term was almost
wholly due to his inability to give every
body an office who applied for one. Now
that the main part of the patronage has
keen distributed, those who criticised him
the most harshly are loudest in their praise
Mr. Cleveland’s success is due to some
thing more than luck. A study of his
career shows that ho is a keen student of hu
man nature, and that, lie has seldom failed
to take tho right course when success
depended upon tho course to lie taken.
Thorough acquaintance with tho great prob
lems of government lie probably has not , but
his strong common sense and sound judg
ment sorvo bins better than the learning of
many of those who have made the science
of government the study of their lives.
Another Woman’s Work.
Avery bright woman complains that the
newspapers entirely overlook one occupa
tion which is open to her sex. She says that
the occupation to which sho has reference is
by far the most independent of ail those
purstKsl by women, ami that it is much less
confining am! a great deal more healthful.
Perhaps an account of what she calls “mak
ing bread and butter for self and fam
ily” will be of value to some other woman.
Hhe lives in a small railroad town in this
State. Several years ago her husband died,
leaving her five children and no income. He
did leave her, however, a house, six acres of
laud and a cow. It was not convenient for
her to teach, nor was it jiossible in the town
in which she lived to obtain a situation in a
store or business office Milliners abounded,
and so there was no opening for a profitable
business in supplying other women with nr
Melos for the adornment of their persons.
In fact, she soon discovered that none of the
occupations generally regarded as suitable
for women w-as open to her. Then sha
thought of her cow. The animal was a fine
one, and yielded an abundance of milk.
With the aid of one of her children
she established a dairy on a small
scale. She readily found purchasers for her
products, and, as her milk and butter were
always fresh and rich, in a few weeks she
found that she could not supply the demand.
After considering tho matter she determined
to enlarge her dairy. Hhe sold one of her
six acres and with the proceeds bought an
other cow. The other five acres she planted
in grain of several varieties, so ms to avoid
tile necessity of buying food for her cows.
At the end of a year sho cast up accounts
and found that while she had lived hard
she was free’froin debt, and that sho and her
children were blessed with good health.
“Such,’’ to quott* her own words, “was
tlio beginning of a business which now
yields ino not less than $1,500 a year profit.
1 have now fifty acres of land, fifteen of the
finest cow r s in Georgia and all the buildings
and appliances that a dairy needs, I find a
ready market at home, and in not less
than three neighboring cities. I mn my
own mistress. I am, indeed, as independent
myitis possible for a human being to bo. My
children are receiving the best educational
advantages that our State affords. My oldest
hoy will graduate next year, and I shall then
take him into my business as a partner.
Never talk to me about clerking, or tele
graphing, or typo-writing' I ant sorry for
the poor women that have such work to do.
It is a pity, too, that more women do not
do as 1 am doing. There are certainly many
that, might if they would."
No doult it is true that keeping a dairy
would be >• pleasant occupation for a large
numb-* of women. Several in Georgia, in
addition to the one whose experience lias

At - . Unwise N*.sviie.
The action of the House on tlm M >.!y
bill was a general t>iuprise. It was not
thought jjossiblo tl*l :t could bo ii.du te< J . to
pass a measure *..hieh lias so little reason in
it, and which is so inimical to tie- interests
of fertilizer deal cm a o.i farms r . Tile
Senate sho*ld kill it, ami, that, too,
without wasting any time over it. Surely
tho farmers don't want a law that v.-;! ! in
create thoi ost of fertilizers, and which can
be of tic benefit to them.
Wlmt does the bill prop*we* Why, that a
farmer who lias puivhOHod a fertilizer on
credit may refuse to pay for it if he thinks
that it is not what it v.as represented to be.
To any suit, brought against him for the
purchase price of a fertilizer he has only to
plead a want of consideration, uml the
dealer must show that his goods were what
he represented thorn to lie. How is the
dealer to do that? There is only one way,
end that is to furnish the certificate of the
inspector who inspected the goods. That,
however, is furnished now. Tho inspector’s
certificate is on all fertilizers, and the
farmer knows just what he is buying.
It may !>o said that tho in
spector’s certificate is not always cor
rect. If that is true, the
State ought to see to it that competent men
are employed as inspectors. The farmers
certainly pay enough in the shape of inspec
tor’s fees to secure first-class men. If an in
spector’s certificate, therefore, is evidence of
the quality of tho goods, and as all fertil
zers are inspected, tbo fanner will gain noth
ing by tlie Brady bill, and may be put to a
very considerable expense for lawyer’s fees
and costs of court.
Another feature of the bill is that all
notes giver for fertilizers must have that
fact stated oil their face. That, together
with the right which the makers of the
notes have to plead a want of consideration,
oven whore tho notes have passed into the
hands of third parties, destroys their nogo
tiability. How is the fertilizer dealer to
got money to carry on his business? Ho
could not'have the notes discounted, nor
could lie pledge thorn for loans, because no
bank would take them, involving m they
would tlie risk of a law suit with the chance
of being held worthless.
Of course if this bill becomes a law fer
tilizers must be sold for cash, or if sold on
credit the prices must lie advanced so ns to
cover the additional risk of losses. It is cer
tain that tho dealers would protect them
selves and tin? farmers would have to bear
whatever cost would bo incurred in securing
legislation, such as is proposed in Brady’s
bill is bad for several reasons. It opens the
way for dishonest persons to avoid the pay
ment of their debts, and it is a temptation
to become dishonest. If this Dill were to be
come a law a dishonest purchaser of fertil
izers would try to benefit by it even if he
had no reasons for doing so, and weak men
might try to make themselves believe that
they had been cheated by the fertilizer deal
ers with the hope of getting rid of their ob
ligations. There certainly would be an im
mense number of lawsuits if the dealers con
sented to sell their goods on credit.
If tho Brady measure is deemed necessary
there is no reason why there should not be
legislation of the same kind with respect to
other things than fertilizer's. There is just
as much reason for excusing a farmer from
1 laying for flour, sugar, hay, corn and other
supplies which ho may think do not come
up to the proper standard of quality as for
excusing him from paying for fer
tilizers which do not produce the
result; that he liiul hoped for; but it
is apparent that if such legislation were ex
tended to all articles it would pretty effectu
ally check business.
If it is believed that thero are fertilizer
dealers who sell worthless goods, let the in
spection laws he made more rigid and
searching, and let tlie dealing in worthless
goods be made an offense punishable by a
severe penalty. Let the punishment for
dishonesty lie inflicted iqion those whode
serve it. It is unjust to honest farmers to
make their burdens heavier. That will be
the result if Brady’s bill becomes a law.
Tho Rahway Mystery.
The murder of a young girl at Rahway,
N. J., which attracted so much attention a
few months ago remains a mystery. The
authorities and reporters, however, are still
tr3'ing to solve it. Every few ilavs some
thing appears in the jiapers which serves to
keep alive public interest in it. Murders
are being committed in different parte of
the country all the time, but they are
quickly forgotten outside of tho locality in
whicli they occur lieeause all the circum
stances connected with them are known.
Tlie Rahway ease is different. The mur
derer has not been found and no cause for
the crime hits been discovered.
Within the last few days it is thought
that a clue has boon found, but it is not by
any means certain that it will lead to any
thing. One of the Coroner’s jury, a few
ilays ago, stated that a basket, exactly liko
the one that was found with eggsfn it lie
side the murdered girl, was seen by him a day
or so before the murder in tho grocery
store of Stewart Baker. When he saw it
Mrs. Baker was mending it with a piece of
twine, and remarked to him that the lvisket
lind bad onion peelings in it. The basket
found beside the murdered girl iiad a few
oniou peelings in it ami had been mended
with twine. The Bakers, when their at
tention was called to this statement, said
that there never had been such a basket ii:
their store. Tlie statement, however, is con
firmed by an old and rosjjcctable gentleman
named Osborn, who happened to be present
when the man who makes the statement
was Micro. With this cluo it ought to lie
possible to trace the Imsket into tlio posses
sion of tho murdered girl.

The Divining Rod.
From the Quiver.
<me of the most recent triumphs of the divin
ing rod in Britain has behn at the Avonmouth
docks. The company owjtfng the docks having
received an intimation U*t an American com
pany proposed establishing a sugar factory near
the (locks provided a good water supply could
lie secured, a certain Mr. Laxttence who has
the reputation of consideranlosmvessasa water
finder was engaged to exauitne the neighbor

a piece of spring steel, which was lient in the
shape of a horse shoe, as tire searcher, holding
his elbows close to his side/}, .began to vv;uk
slowly over the field After a while the steel be
came so violently agitated, and twisted itself
with such force, that one of -Mr. Lawrence's
lingers was cut: He directed the company to
commence boring at the spot tlius indicated by
the shedding of his blood, and the work was ac
cordingly commenced. At the depth of 107 feet
water was struck, and has since flowed at the
rate of 1,000 gallons per hour.
in New England also the location of wells is
saitl to be frequently decided by the aid Of the
water-twig. And, moving wditwnrd, we un
told that the Southern Pacific and 1 (' -ntral Pa

plains, be.en glad to avail themselves of the
services of tho divining rod in order to success
fully locate their artesian wells.
Doubtless ere long, this seemingly mysterious

(forgetting how little our great-grandparents
knew of tho forces of stenfii and electricity and
how certain it is that nature still holds many a
secret which science has as yet failed to dis
cover) believe that w hatever is beyond their

Last week a man with both legs missing ap-

years for the surgeon who amputated his limbs
so that he could secure a pension. Dr. Coleman,

him it was discovered that the doctor was the
longiiearched-for army surgeon. The man was
taken care of and will now probably be able to
get a pension.

single exercise that was given to tho whole
school. He was much chagrined at his inability
to handle enough of English to work the exer

in his own language. The teacher told him
with a smile, that he could do it in his own lan

to cover both sides of his slate with two alleged
solutions of the exercise, one being written on
one side in Hebrew and the other on the other
