. TENDERFOOT EDISON. The Great Electrician Has an Amusing ) Experience on the Plains. At a dinner party at the Presidio tho other evening, one of the officers related some anecdotes ot Thomas Edison. 'He is the most unpractical man in the--world," said the Captain. "I re member well the summer of '78, the season of the total eclipse of the sun. A lot of scientific men were there Pro. Trouvelot, of Cambridge; Hark ness, the well-known astronomer; John L.

"Edison was one of the party, and they made observations, drew sketches, took photographic impressions, and when the eclipse was over compared notes as to the sensations they had ex perienced.

Abimne Reflector. Bichard Wabiko. Business Manager. Thursday, March 8, 1888, Memorial Addresh on General Logan- BY HON. T. B. HEED. February 8. 18S8. General Logan died full of honors; but, alas! how full of years. Through out his life, cut off in its richest flower, he had every token of popular favor, every sanction of popular esteem. His name was familiar in our mouths as household words, llis martial face and figure kindled the imaginations of bis own generation and will kindle the hearts of the young and generous in many generations which are to come. But it is not because he held high places, or because he looked, and was, eyery inch a soldier tbat we erect this memorial tablet here. High places may come of fawning. High honors are not always worthily won; and God sometimes shows, by the people lie gives it to, that He is as contemptuous of ureat office as He has been said to be of great wealth. This church is not a Hall of Heroes in which to celebrate human greatness. It is r...

- & ft EXTRAVAGANT DRESS. A. Philosophical Citnldortlon of an In portant Question. A love of the beautiful and orna mental need not degenerate into a craving for merely costly luxury. Here we have to investigate the meaning of luxury in dres. Every one will admit that a Brussels lace flounce which has cost fifty thousand hour3 of labor and the eyesight of more than one workei is a luxury, yet in one whirl of a waltz the queen of the ball-room has sacri ficed this costly article. And what ad vantage does she gain? But what is luxury in one age. in another is a cheap and necessary article of wear. The days are passed when a Prince received a shirt as a fitting gift from a Princess: when cotton there was none, and linen was so dear it was held to be an ex travagance to wear a night-dress. Thanks to discoveries and inventions, to machinery and to facilities of trans port, woolen, linen and cotton fabrics are within reach of everyone, at prices adapted to the slenderest means.
