Grip vs. Gripes.
The “Harrison grip" is u new, or
rather an old disease, which lias
broken out in Western New York. A
similiar epidemic, in the forties, was
ealled the “Tyler grip.” lint the
“Harrison grip” is nothing to the
gripes and grip of the republicans of
18811. The ins have the “grip,” and
they are holding on to office like griin
death to a ,h ad nigger; while the outs
have the gripes. And they have it
mighty had. But if you want to see
a genuine ease of the latter, turn your
eye toward the democratic multitude,
who arc standing afar off. Some of

give before 18!).'!. This is a long time
to wait, hut it would seem that the
disease will have to run its course; run
until the grip of the republicans can
he broken loose. And then they will
have the gripes themselves.
There is a good deal of difference
between the feelings of a man who has
a firm grip on a fat paying office, aud
that of the man who has the gripes,
from being left out in the cold. Jlere
and there is a democrat who still has
a grip oil a small office, hut the fatal
swish of the political executioner’s nx,

of those who are still nervously hold
ing on. Fewer and fewer grow the
once grand army of democratic office
holders. The places which now know
the few remaining ones, will shortly
know them no more. A long and
hastly procession has already

still moves, and, one by one, loved

“The Harrison grip” is not a pecu
liar manner of handshaking adopted
by the President, but the name given
to a disease which has become epi
demic in Ncwburg, N. Y. It is more
severe in the cases of adults than those
of children, but in no instance has it
yet proved fatal. It is said that
about 2,000 people in that city are ill
with it. A like epidemic prevailed
in Eastern New York iu 1842, during
the term of office of President Tyler,
and it was then called the “Tyler
grip.” The physicians were unable to
give it a name when it reappeared re
cently, until they found that it was
called the “Tyler grip” in 1842, then
they concluded to call it the “Harri
son grip.” The symptoms are not
typical of nny one disease, but par
take of several.—Ex.

In an address delivered before the
Iowa Chautauqua assembly on “The
“Value of English Literature,” Fresi-
udent Stetson, of the Dcs Moines col
lege, said some things at least worthy
«f consideration. “English litera
ture,” said he, “is the only one we
can master, and yet the student in
cur colleges devotes more time to
foreign languages than lie devotes to
the literature of his own tongue. In
the Englishman and Anglo-American
llows the best blood of northern and
tentral Europe, and tbeir literature is
the fruitage of the i ipest thinking of
the ages. Being thus superior to all
Others, why has it so small a place in

healthy and patriotic talk, and, com
ing from a college president, it is one
•f the noteworthy signs of the times.
The St. Louis Globe Democrat says;
“Only one city in the world has ever
undertaken by legal supervision to
put every bouse under positive and
absolute sanitary control, and that
city is Buenos Ayres. The purpose
is within three years to have this ac
complished. By no other means can
a city’bc rendered safe for residence,
and in no other way can the laws that
city residence rapidly degenerates the
population be reserved. The matter
of sanitation cannot in any phase of
it, he left to individuals; it must he a
public provision, rigidly enforced.
Now that two-ninths of all our people
live in cities the subject is one that
cannot be deferred.”

The Lightning's Flash.
Chicago, July 10.—About 10
o’clock last night one of the heaviest
thunder storms of recent years visited
At 1 o’clock on Thursday morning
the thermometer registered 815°. The
weather did not grow any cooler dur
ing the night, and all day yesterday
the heat was frightful. Moisture sur
charged the atmosphere and made the
sun’s rays unbearable.
The electrical display that accom
panied the rain was remarkable. A
number ot buildings and residences
were struck by lightning, but the
damage in all cases was slight. Bains
flooded the cellars in the southwestern
portion of the city alld many base
ments of down town business houses,
doing great damage. Many cheap
basement lodging houses were flooded
and their lodgers driven out on the
streets. The rapidity of the rainfall
was unprecedented in this locality. In
a period of twenty minutes it aggre
gated one inch, and altogether reach
ed 1.04 inches.
Cincinnati, July 19.—About .‘i
o'clock this morning a heavy rain
storm came upon the city from the
north, accompanied by severe thun
der and lightning. The rain fell in
such torrents that all the hill-side
streets were flowing with angry
streams. The bank of the Ohio ca
nal at York street broke, and water
poured from the canal iu a great
flood. The cellars and first floors of
several dwellings at that point were
filled with water, and a stream several
tcct deep rail down York street and
Central avenue. The occupants of
thc’first floors in some of the houses
were rescued with difficulty. The
rainfall here was 2.10 inches.
Advices from oilier parts ot the
state show that yesterday alternoon
and last night heavy rains fell in many
places. A cloud burst is reported at
I.ancaslcr, which caused a big washout
on the Columbus, Hocking Valley and
Guano Forks, Dak., July ig.—The
past few days have been extremely
hot. Tuesday night there was one of
the heaviest rainfalls that ever visited
Fittsiiuko,, Pa., July 19.—A special
Iroin Parkersburg,AV. Va., says: “The
greatest disaster which ever befell the
Little Kanawha valley came last night
in the shape of a terrible cloud burst,
which has completely flooded the
country, destroying many lives, carry
ing off thousands of dollars o(property
and ruining crops for many mil«.'
The deluge fell here about dusk and
continued to fall in torrents, doing
much damage in the city. The worst
of the storm struck the lower side of
the Kanawha, filling its small tributa
ries from bank to bank and ending in
the worst flood within the recollection
of the oldest inhabitant. In three
hours the Kanawha rose six lect and
ran out with such velocity that it
carried everything before it. At this
point thousands of logs and a number
ol boats went out or were sunk.
“The worst story comes from Mor-
sistown, a small village near the head
of Tucker creek, where a cloud burst
concentrated in all of its fury, coming
down in the village about midnight
and totally destroying it, together
with many of its people. The first
report gave the loss at eleven, but
later news seems to fix the loss at a
greater number. The houses of the
citizens are said to have been picked
up and hurled against each other in
such short space of time that no
chance to escape was given the peo

New York, July 19/—There was an
unusually live time on the stock ex
change to-day, and the bears had
things very much their own way until
the sharp rally which came just before
the close. Richmond Terminal cut
quite a figure iu the day’s dealings,
ranging wilder in its fluctuations than
almost anything on thq list. It open
ed at 22 1 2, and under a vigorous at
tack just about midday, was hammer
ed down 10 19 1 a. The sudden drop
made a decided sensation, and for an
hour or so Wall street was full of ru
mors as to the cause.
SOME OF THE RUMORS AFLOAT.
One story was that a big insider had
tired of his load, and attempted to
slip out ol his holdings. Another ru
mor put it that the attack was Jay
Gould's, with the idea of knocking the
stock down, and then buying enough
of it to give him control n| the prop
erty. In other quarters it was said
that it was not Gould but Alfred Sully,
Simon Borg and their associates, who
had raided the price with the idea of
capturing the control. Still another
story was that the property was about
to go into the hands of a receiver. In
a narrow ciicle of wiseacres it'was con
fidentially whispered that the company
was soon to issue another batch of
stock, which would increase the pres
ent capital several millions.
Providence, July 19.—About
o’clock Tuesday evening a big balloon
passed over this city heading in a di
rection that would have brought it up
over Buzzard’s Bay and Vineyard
sound in an hour or two. A great
many people believe that the balloon
was the missing Campbell airship. No
balloon ascensions are known to have
been made hereabouts recently.
SEEN AT SEA.
New York, July 18.—Pilot Phelan
ol the pilot boat Caprice, whoFrought
the bark Belt into port, reports that on
July 16, in latitude 29° 30' and long
itude 71° 40'he sighted Irom the
■masthead, at a long distance away, a
balloon dragging its car along the sur
face of the water. He gave chase to
it, but at sundown, when about three-
quarters of a mile from it, it collapsed
and disappeared from sight.
New Orleans, July 19.—Yester

The thermometer at the signal ser
vice office registered 95°. Four per
sons were reported prostrated by the
heat, two of them having since died.
