\t.h;xa.]STDRJ a.. MONDAY EVENING. FEBEUAEY 1-L The most noticeable thing about the lei ter Mr. Elaine has ju9t written withdrawing Iroin the contest for the nomination of the next national republican Convention, is the fuel that whereas soon after the last national oitrsion Mr. Blaine asserted that he had hetn defrauded of ihe Presidency, and re? cently stated he had never been satisfied that h?had not beeu elected,in the letter referred <(, ho impliedly concedes the legality and f?imr;p o? Mr. Cleveland's election, and vasU: s no alhisiod whatever to the bloody shir:, nor any to tho alleged suppression of the colored vote in the South. The fact ?

MONDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY 13. A Vebitarle Oaskof "Broken Heart." ?The important function in the animal economy filled by the heart baa always been recongnized, and as its action is visible , and palpable?sometimes unduly so?peo- j pie of whose education physiology formed j no part have handed down to uh a variety cf expressions embodying the idea that rea-; aon, memory, the emotions, etc, were ail ' located within thin very useful organ. One of these expressions is that of a "broken r-.&art"?the result of grief or Bhock. How f-uoh an expression could have came into general use is rather a. puzzle. A broken (ruptured) heart would of necessity entail a very speedy demise, and joyful tidings would be much more likely to effect Buch im occurrence by accelerating the circula? tion and increasing the blood pressure. It must he taken, we suppose, to mean a "broken spirit"?the collapse of the body cfh-equent cu extreme depression of the mind. Now and again, however, we meet with ...

Asleep in a Streei Car.?Ia one corner of a crowded -;treet-car crossing the Sixth street bridge on Saturday evening sat a youog lady of more than ordinary good lookB.

Toere was a half smile on her face, too, as if her dreams were pleasant. She had probably been standing behind a dry-goods counter all day long. The men, and the women, too, were careful not to touch even the hem of the sleeping girl's dress as they passed out ono by one from the car.

v A ALEXANDRIA. WEDNESDAY EVENING. FEBRUARY 15\_ Whether Mb. Blaine be sincere or not in withdrawing from the contest for the nomination of the next national republican convention, to all disinterested people it is plain that he is by far the most popular man in bis party, and that if its candidate, he would arouse it to a degree of hopefulness and en? thusiasm impossible to be produced by any olhej mac in bis party. His perc-C?Stl nettem Is unequalled by any other republi? can in the country, and, accounted for as it may be, there is no doubt of bis great popu? larity among the Catholic and foreign ele? ment lu all the States.

WEDNESDAY EVENING. FEBRUARY 15. Abotjt Advertising.?A large Philadel? phia corcern addreaes the following sensible letter to the Times of that city about adver? tising. It is surprising how many, even of bright business men. give little or no real thought and study to their advertising. With a sort of conviction that they are in duty bound to spend some raouey in this way, their con? science is satisfied with a speedy disposition of it regardless of its profitable result. There are some cases !nof as rare as they ought to he) where it really seems as if the advertis? er thought that the brightest thing todo was to insert an advertisement in the paper that reached the fewest number of people, and small price per line, instead of in the paper that reached the largest number of reader?, at an apparently higher price, but in reality a much lower one: and there are still others who are remarkably consistent in the persis? tency with which they send out circulars that few people ever, or,...
