Mle ^aUs Ifausmjrt W. M. FULLER, Paublishef. IITTLS FALLS, MINNESOTA The Blair educational bill as passed by the senate appropriates $77,000,000 to be distributed through the various states according to the illiteracy, the ability of persons above the age of 10 years to write being made the standard of distribution, and the last census tho means of arriving at the estimate. Ac­ cording to this authority there were 6, 239,958 persons above the age of 10 years in the country in the year 1880 unable to write. This would distribute the $77,000,000 in the northwest as fpl lows: Dakota $50,000 Iowa $560,000 Minnesota $'100,000 Wisconsin $660, 000 Georgia would have the largest slice, viz. $6,240,000, while Alabama, Kentucky, Louisian, a Mississippi, North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Mississ­ ippi and Texas, are not far behind.

The antiquity of the city, its quaint, naVrow streets, with overhanging balconies the halo of ro­ mance given it by memories of I!once do Leon and the exploits of Pedro Menen diz and Awedondo, and its beautiful gardens, where roses are always blos­ soming among the date palms and orange and fig trees, give it an atmos­ phere different to that of any other city in the state. The sea-wall skirts the entire front of the city from the parade ground at the south to the fort at the north. This forms a delightful prome­ nade. Guard mount is held every after­ noon at the parade ground, and two con­ certs are given each week by the fine military band stationed here.

To herself it was all like a dream, it had come so '^st it seemed as if all her life had lived itself in those six months the leaving her English school and going out to her father's planta­ tion in Ceylon, so proud to be hi* housekeeper and companion the strange brief life on the up-country coffee estate. Then the young Eng­ lish stranger who passed through Lin doola, in his rather vague wanderings for adventure's sake, and who was re­ ceived and entertained at Holme Har court with the delightful open-hand­ ed hospitality of the colonies. And then tho awful night when the sudden terrible stroke of cholera left her fatherless, and life seemed one great black void and the chaplain's wife had been good to her, and kept her from dying in des...

-4 ^iLusband?. Your wife is entitled ta l»er share of yqur income. It is her income as well as yours. John Stuarl Mill was a cold­ blooded philosopher, not a warm-blood­ ed sentimentalist, and John Stuart Mill Bays that the natural division of labor in'tho household, Which ussi'-us to the husband the earning of tlie niondy and to the wife the administration of the home, is an equable division of labor, giving to the two, ordiflar ly, an about equal share. To dole out mon.'y grudg­ ingly to your wife is more than ungen­ erous it is unjust. 'Die treasury is a common treasury. The property ought to be a common property. You and she are, com mere! idly speaking, part­ ners. She has a rigid to a reasonable proportion of your income, to have it regularly, to have it without hesitation, reluetanee, or question, to .spend it in her own discretion, and not to be called upon to account /or each dollar before she receives another. We have re­ ceived lately several letters on this sub­ ject on ...

,%\v j* .*±K 1 Js-T-r W. M. FULLER, Puublishar. LITTLE FALLS, MINNESOTA. U?t iwtox lea aqpea 1 The Cincinnati newspapers are still trying to exculpate themselves from the charge of nciting the late riot, but they find it a difficult matter. The truth is, that instead of the so-ealle^ "dangerous classes" being at the bot­ tom of the bloody affair, it was respec­ table newspapers and respectable pub­ lic speakers. Had they exhibited ordi­ nary common sense there would have been no riot. Undoubtedly the riot will work reform where reform was greatly needed, but that. could have been accomplished without bloodshed and destruction of property. Five hundred mormon immigrants are rived at Castle Garden, Ne\* York, half of whom were English and the oth­ er half Scandinavians. They were ac­ companied by seventeen mormon mis­ sionaries, and immediately started for Utah. This is only one day's record oi mormon increase. How true it is that anything that savors of persecution de­ feats itself. ...

Ja^onHall, a quainl.old, castellated thucttrce of the tune.of Queen Elizabeth fcituated upon the coast Of Essex and overlooking the English channel, was the seat of Admiral Sir Thomas Stroat, ft rough, robust old British sailor, who flouritfhed during the early part of the last andt he beginning of the present cen­ turies. Originally the place had been called an abbey. The admiral had giv­ en it its present name in honor of the old Jason frigate, on board which he had served as post-captain when it waa the flagship of England's sailor-king, William IY., then admiral and duke of Clarence. In 1882, the time of which we write, Sir Thomas, grown old and battered in the service, had been honorably retired upon full pay. He was never so happy as whon he could induce old shipmates to share his hospitality. Admirals of the Bed, the White or the Bkie wore all gladly entertained by Sir Thomas. Post captains were al­ ...

OS A RUNAWAY TRAIiV. From the Youths Companion. Probably no occupation is subject to greater perils, no life more filled with incidents liable in a moment's time to develop into dangeroils and thrilling ex­ periences—than that of a locomotive en­ gineer and no death is so sudden, or, it may be, even, so protracted aud hor­ rible in suffering, as that -which often falls to the lot of these heroes of the throttle and the lever. The incident which I am about to re­ late, will serve to illustrate some of the dangers to which I have reft'ered. It was a sultry day, and tired of my long ride westward, and the heat aud confinement of the cars,- I took oppor­ tunity, while the train waited for con­ nections, to walk along the platform to refresh myself. As I was strolling by •the engine, an unusually fine one, I stopped to admire it, and presently be­ gan a conversation with the engineer, whoseemod good-humored and friendly, and whom I perceived to be a very in­ telligent man. Seeing my inte...
