The Geyser Question. (Edit.or:al Correspondence. "'ie ,lOinios of our correspondent and others that the Shonkin Geyser was a hum bug, arnd an indignant denial of this, and sev eral assurances of their existence by a num ber of credible witnesses, induced us to pay the upper Shonkin section a visit that we might view the matter with our own eyes, and also take in whatever of interest that might present. The so-called Geyser springs are situated 14 miles from Benton and about two and one half miles from Patterson's ranch, in the side of a high bluff which forms the boundary of the Shonkin valley. The edge of the bluffs are a percipitous wall of gneiss, dipping perpendicular and looking much like some ruined ancient wall in its evenness and reg ularity, an effect which is heightened by but tressesse of rock which spring out from it at almost regular intervals. It is in this wall that these curious springs are situated, away back in the recessof a deep gorge which they have evidently in...

A REMARKABLE DOUUMEMT. Full Text of the Nihilist Manifesto to the Czar. The Nihiiist Executive Committee has is sued a manifesto to the Czlr from the office of the Yarodnai. V'ola. It is a very impor tant document, inasmuch as it reveals the en tire purpose of the organization and the part it intends to take in the reign of Alexander III. It begins thus: "The bloody tragedy enacted on the Eketerinesky canal was not an accident and took no one by surprise. After all that has passed within the past ten years it appeared inevitable, and in that con sists its deep signification which should be properly recognized by the man whom rate has placed at the head of the State. It is only men incapable of analyzing the life of nations who can characterize similar fact, as crimes committed by individuals or by a band. During the last ten years we have wit. nessed in Russia, notwithstanding the mosi severe persecutions, and notwithstanding that the governument of the late Emperor sac. rificed eve...

FOR LADIES ONLY. Mixed black and white feathers are used to trim black rough straw hats. Steel appears as a part of the decorative effects of every dressing toilet. Gilded bamboo and violet wool sticks are the most popular for parasols. Black costumes are brightened with ombre surah or bayadere striped goods. Bright gold color, not to say yellow, is one of the most popular shades in dress. Little puffed pockets of ombre and baya dere silks are worn, with sashes to match. Sateens and cambrics are more in demand at the moment than muslins, lawns, or linens. A great deal of imitation lace, as a rule, enters into the composition of all diaphanous toilets. A fan has been ordered in Paris by the Empress Eugenie as a present to the Princess Beatrice. It is pronounced to be an exquisite work of art, painted by Albert from a design by Lelois. It is mounted in white-mother-of pearl, the name of the princess painted in pink convolvulas, and the royal crown, which terminates the handle, is comp...

PUBLIO OPINION, [Chicago Times.] There is no element of popularity in cause which has no higher basis than thi assertion of a Senator's "primacy" in the distribution of official plunder which can en list public sympathy against a President whc has simply shown respect for his solemn ob ligation to "preserve, protect and defend the constitution." This has been the attitude of the Presideni throughout this unavoidable quarrel with the self-constituted Senatorial "primate." In every stage of the conflict, which, it may be truly said, was begun by Conkling as soon as the nomination of Garfield was made at Chicago, the President has conducted him self with dignity and firmness. He has re spected himself, and shown in every action the highest respect for the majesty of the great office to which the nation has called him. He has proven that the trust of those who placed the greatest confidence in his in tegrity, fidelity, courage, and steadiness of purpose has not been misplaced. The resig...

WE MBARRY WHERE WE DO NOT LOVE! Idly I read of the old familiar score, Wistful I touch the sweet responsive keys ; I feel the breath of days that are no more, I hear the night wind's whisper in the trees. This yellowing sheet in every bar and line Reminds of happiness that once was mine. Each note recalls a roseate vanished hour So full of pleasure that its ghost is pain; Each weird repeat is perfumed like a flower That pressed within an album's rage hath lain. Were I to sing a melting baritone, A voice superb, would surely join my own. Ah! let me try. The strain is meant for two I never practiced it alone before The witching melody that was not new When courtly couples trod the polished floor In grandma's youth; the soft arpeggio Evoked for her the bloom of long ago. Alas! the quick tears blur the wolds to-day I had not thought myself so very weak. What! grieving for a friend who did not say "I loye you,".though he saw on brow and cheek Shy tokens of a secret unconfessed A tenderne...

THE ARROGANT SENATE. A History of the Growth of its Prerogatives and the Danger of its Existence. [Chicago Times.) The body called the Senate is the most an amolous part of the American Constitution. It is a part of the Legislature; it i. h the President, the whole Legislature; it is a part of the judiciary; it is a privy council; it is an assembly of co-equal provinces:; it is a co-ordinate part of the executive; it is, ac cording to Mr. Conkling, a board of directors placed over the executive. It is a combina ton of all these characters, not upon any ra tional rule or upon any coherent theory, but by purely arbitrary arrangement. How it came to be the queer body it is fur nishes an interesting subject of inquiry for all who wish to get s;mne clear idea of what kind of a constitution the American Consti tutioni is. One fact should be kept always in mind; the manufacturers of the enacted instrument in the terms of which most people have the erroneous habit of supposing the Constitu ...

FLOATING PANOIES. Jones calls his poetry Virtue, because it is its own reward. ,'When a Texas editor is shot his fellow kind say of him that he was double leaded. "He a doctor," said old Chawbacon, speak ing of a young practitioner, "why, he could not cure a ham." "I find that with light meals my health im proves," said the Esquimaux; and down went another candle. It is terribly embarrassing to come into town from a fishing excursion and find there is not a trout in the market. Anna Dickinson's failure to play Claude Melnotte is explained. She couldn't find a pair of pants she could pull on over her head. Bob Ingersoll has made $20,000 out of his lecture on hell. If there is no such place Robert has made a good deal of money out of nothing. A Brooklyn fashion paper stated that '"maiden's blush" was a fashionable color, and none of the readers had any idea what it was like.

A SYBARITE. The gods unto my soul their gift have given ! The nectar drained upon Olympian hills Has filled my chalice full of joy like Heaven Its bliss through all my being throbs and thrills. That poison in its crimson glow is hidden I know full well-and yet I drain the cup! 0 God and Heaven, if ye must be forbidden Unto my soul for this, I give ye up ! How can a far-off dream of Heaven measure : Unto my soul a contemplating bliss? Why should an unseen God demand the treasure 'Ihat I can hold unto my heart and kiss ? To-day we have-we know not if to-morrow Upon the eyes that sleep to-night shall dawn! The joy we hold we have-why need to borrow From unknown realms and leave our souls in pawn? The draught that laves my lips my thirst assuages Not that which sparkles on some unseen shore. What rapture won from the slow pulse of ages Could threugh my soul this fiery torrent pour ? Avaunt, thou bloodless spectre of delusion! Against my heart warm flesh and blood shall lie ! To-day I ha...

ZAGFRANA. A Remarkable Romance of Africa and Europe. The kaleidoscope of justice, says a Paris correspondent, ever revolving and ever re ceiving new additions of man's follies and passions, continually startles us by new pic tures which the boldest novelists in quest of the sensational had never dared to limn. Read this history of human lives and won der at novelists' timidty. In 1842 Henry Husson gave up in despair. He had adopt ed teaching as a profession, but, do as he might, he could not earn more than a bare livelihood. To live in Paris with only money enough to keep the wolf from the door is to lead Tantalus's life, which Henry Husson refused to do. Looking all over the globe to see where he might hope to, escape the curse of poverty, he thought Egypt offered most promise. He shook off the dust of Paris from his feet and to Egypt he went. It was the hour when Frenchmen were most in favor there. He was at once made natural ist of the Government, and he explored Up per Egypt and...

PLAIN LANGUAGE FROM TRUTHFUL ROS. Which I wish to remark And my language is plain For ways that are dark, And for tricks not in vain, The heathen Jim Gee is peculiar, And so is the heathen Jim Blaine. Jim Gee was his name, And I always thought that He was gentle and tame, And as weak as a cat; For his smile it was pensive and childlike, As I often remarked to Tom Platt. It was March twenty-third, And quite soft were the skies, Whence it might be inferred That Jim Gee was likewise, But he played on that day upon Thomas And ME in a way I despise. Which he did nominate Woodford, Payn, all the band That were down on my slate, And played into my hand; And he smiled as he sat in the White House A smile I could not understand. Yet the game was not fair, I regret to disclose; 'Twould have made a man swear How I trod on his toes And drove his hat in on his shoulders, And the same with intent to bulldoze. But the point that was made By that heathen Jim Gee ' When I thought him afraid Was quit...
