The term "American nervousness" ha3 become almost proverbial, and it is a popular belief that the nervous tem perament iscJiaracfc-rNticof the inhabi tants of the United States; that all our affairs arc conducted on tl- "hih pressnrc" system, and that our normal state is one of the highest excit ment.

Abilene Keflectok. yl&888. Thursday, February Eichakd Wabexg, Business Manager. The coal miners' strike that has caused so much trouble in Pennsyl vania for the past month seems in a fair way of settlement. The represen tative of the labor men preseuted a proposition to the coal company, which has been accepted. From this distance it looks as though the laboring men had been the losers and that matters stand very much the same as they were be fore the strike, except that the laborers have lost their wages and some of them their positions. Strikes so far in this country appear to have resulted disas trously to the strikers. Eight hundred newspapers are pub lished in Kansas, and the result is that Kansas is the best advertised and con sequently the best-known state in the Union. Each paper has on an average a circulation, counting in all the smaller publications both daily and weekly, of about 600. This would make 480,000 subscribers. Suppose that each subscriber during a year sho...

1M )r RUSSIAN - COSSACKS. The tarries. Unprincipled Slen Who Com pone tlie Czar's Itody Gourd. I see here at St Petersburg only a few soldiers in the streets, and the dashing Cossacks riding like mad on horseback arc the life of the military for the winter. The Cossacks are the life guards of the Czar, and are the most interesting of the many char acteristics in that strange country. A genuine Cossack has no more ap preciation or dread of danger than he has of his vodka, a terrible rum. which he drinks like water and which makes intoxication at sight. He was the original soldier of Russia, the patron detective and the prime spirit in making republican institutions what they are. He is devoted to the Czar, and for his devotion has been knighted in the high est degree. The acme of the Russian soldier is to become associated with the service of the crown and to be located about the palace. When a soldier is stationed in the vicinity of the palace and it becomes known that he has been r...

Endicott's Keport on the Fiags. Endicott's reply to the Beutelle reso tion asking for information about the proposed return of Rebel flags to the "Confederate states," as the President styled them last summer, is far from satisfactory, but perhaps it is the best the Secretary could make out of Cleve land's bad botch. The reference to the action of Secretaries Stanton, Belknap, McCrary, Ramsey andJLincoln in deliv ering to Union troops recaptured Union flags has nothing whatever to do with the matter in Question, and amounts only to a pitiful attempt to befog and confuse the real issue. Why shouldn't a Union regimpntal organization get back a flag it lost in battle which was afterwards recaptured from the Rebels and passed into the custody of the War Department? In such cases the only inquiry has been whether or not the loss of the flag was attended by any disci editable circumstances. If not. it was considered entirely proper that Union soldiers should get back a Union flag lost wit...
