Sir Richard Owen, the naturalist, left an estate valued at about $173,009, which is a little unusual for a scientist. Inventor Edison’s children by his first wife are familiarly called “Dot” and “Dash,” from the characters in the Morse alphabet. One of the most prosoerous inventors of the day is George Westinghous9, whos9 wonderiul brake has brought him in a'for- tune of *10,000,000. General Grant once declined to serve as President of the Panama Canal Company, with a salary of $28,099, because he thought its scheme impracticable. President Diaz, of Mexico, according to common rumor, is worth some thirty mill ions, of which twenty are invested in Mexi can railroads, telegraphs and electric light plants. Hans Von Bulow. the pianist, who was recently removed to a private insane asylum mar Berlin, shows no sign of recovering his mental equi ibrium, and doctors hold out- very little hope. Frank Vincent, who has left Colombo to continue his explorations in Africa, has al ready travels l over 390,090 miles, and, though he has had many narrow escapes, he never had a serious accident. Minot J. Savage, the celebrated Boston, preaches extemppraneously, but his thoughts are presented so well that the stenographer’s reports rarely require any editing for publicition in book form. Captain John Adam Cooper^ is the youngest veteran of the Mexican War, hav ing enlisted at t le age of twelve. He is also the pioneer horse car driver of Sin Francis co, having been in the business t-wenty-nine years The clergyman who. has continuously oc cupied one pulpit longer than any other di vine in the world is Rev.

The only two natives of Colorado in the House of Representatives of teat State are Harry Sims, of Arapahoe, who was the first white coiid born in Pueblo, and C9les- tina Garela, who represented Cou9jos Coun ty, aud who is of Mexican parentage. Ex-SeCSETARY V ILLIAM MAXWELL Evart-s, wao celebrated his seveuty-ttfth birtiodav recently, has long looked several years oiler to m. his true age, owing to the fact that he was never puysical'y strerg and has always been a hard worser. The venerable banker, Bleichroeder, of Berlin, who died a few days ago, hied him self to Dresden on his seventieth birthday in order to escape any demonstration that his friends might arrange in his honor. But he left a $5000 for the deserving poor of Berlin. dT is related ot J. Sterling Morton, Cleve- lanu’s Secretary of Agriculture, that when his wife died'he had a tombstone erected over her grave bearing her name and the names of his three sons.

Henly, of Birmingham, as convict inspector; Dr. Jones, of Ma rengo, physician; and IU Tram Nichol son, of Jefferson county, chaplain. The office of warden of the penitentiary was created, as c invicts will hereafter be sent to the penitentiary walls. In the court of Campbell county, Ken tucky. at Newport, Tuesday, two uota- ble indictments came up for bearing. They were against Hon. A. L. Berry, congressman-elect from the sixth Ken tucky district, successor to Hon. John G. Carlisle. One indictment charged bribery and the other malfeasance in office. The judge of the court ruled out the former and the comm m wealth attor ney cleared the docket of the latter by nolle pros' qni. A Nashville special of Monday says: Ralph Davis, speaker of the Tennessee house of representatives, who has been disbarred by the decision of Judge Estes of the Shclhy county circuit court, an nounced that be will not resign his po sition as speaker, but will fight the case to the end.

Va., is as far from a settlement as ever and scenes of violence are just as frequent. Wednesday night a fire, sup posed to be incendiary, broke out at the ear house of the company in South Wheeling, The less was not serious. Two hours later a riot occurred in the same vicinity. The public is losing patience with the strikers, but owing to the fact that every labor organization in the city has taken up their cause and de clared boycotts on all who patronize the street cars, it seems almost impossi ble for matters to be settled in any other way than by arbitration. The cause of the strike was the discharge of two men for discouitesies to passengers. No wane Question is involved. ia a shade weaker than a weSfe. ago. Business in bars is unsatisfactory; plates are very weak, and while structural works are full of orders, competition iB so sharp that prices have little chance to improve. “Cotton manufac'uriDg is thoroughly healthy, the dividends at Fall River be ing the largest for four years, and some ad vances are noted in the prices of goods, while prints aud print cloths are very firm. “Business failures during the past week number for the United St ites, 193; Canada, 37; total, 230. WHAT BRADSTREET 8AT8. Bradstreet’s lep rt says: Trough- out the eastern aud middle states favor ing conditions in some leading lines con tinue to dominate. The improvement in 1 he prices of iron and steel at Pittsburg seems to have checked buying, wbicb ia now from hand to m. uth again. Com- m-rcial travelers from Baltimore are re turning, some having finished their trips, 1 there to meet southern merchants and customers expected in Baltimore in large numbers about inauguration time to make the season’s purchases in person. The demand for staple cotton goods at eastern mills is in excess of the supply. Print cloths are firm at 4 cents, with de liveries equal to the output and no stock at the milt-, against 50,000 pieces on hand one year ago and 340,000 two years ago. Reports from the more important southern commercial centers indicate that continued imtavorable weather and bad roadways at the interior have exer cised a further unfavorable influence. Business is steady at Nashville, but there is no rush. The weather has improved, but is not en tirely favorable. Trade is fairly active at Memphis, partiru’arly for boots, shoes and groceries, and the like is true as to hardware and of foo i .-.tuples at Rich mond, but other lines are raid to be quiet and collection* !esa nrormot F stone.* Public Debt Statement. The debt statement issued Wednesday shows a net cash balance of $24,128,087, being a decrease during the month of $1,136,280. Total cash in the treasury, and collections less prompt. Even from Atlanta come reports of mercantile col lections being visibly aTected by bad roadways and continued unfavorable weather, and New Orleans reports that stagnation in the cotton market is result ing in orders from country merchants.

Tate a slight and tri fling matter as nn instance. Grinding the coffee takes some minutes.

Sugar, tea, coffee and nee are care lessly 3pilled in the handling. Soap is left to dissolve and waste in the water. Dish towels are used for dish cloths. Napkins are used for dish towels. Towels are used for holders. Brooms and mop3 are not hung up. More coal is bu r ned than necessary by not arranging dampers when not using the fire. Lights are left burning when not used. Tin dishes are not properly cleansed and dried. Good, new brooms are used in scrub bing kitchen floors. Silver Bpoons arc used in scraping kettles. Cream is left to mold and spoil. • Mustard i3 left to spoil in tho cruse, etc. Pickles become spoiled by tho leaking out or evaporation of the vinegar. Pork spoils for want of salt, and beef because the brine wants scalding. Hams become tainted or filled with vermin for want of care. Cu.-os" molds and is eaten by mice and vermin. Tea and coffee pots ztp injured on the stove. Woodenwarc is unscalded, and leu to warp and crack.
