A West Virginia boy had a tame fox, which he
called Roscoe Conkling on account of its cunning
ways and sly tricks. When he heard a subscription
was being taken up for Mrs. Garfield, the little fel-
low boxed his fox and expressed it to the New
York Flour Exchange, requesting that he be sold
and four-fifths of the proceeds turned over to the
lady—the remaining fifth to be remitted as he
wished to buy a pig. The fox has no doubt ere
this been sold for a fabulous sum.
The Mrs. Garfield fund now amounts to $150,000.
Mackey, the Bonanza King, says that he will make
up any balance required to complete tile proposed
amount; but Cyrus W, meld says ho would rather
not have one man to give so heavily to the Suad.
While the generally accepted opinion is that the

N'Ikporte contributes a chapter ou the political
condition of the country under the caption,
" Machine Politics and Demagogtam." He handles
his subject attractively and very much like an
honest knight of ~ the old regime. He argues in a
circle, however, and leaves the reader and the
machine just where he picked them up. The
machine is the party—the party the machine. Hie
party can not elevate itself morally while radical
cancers remain as the pabulum of a corrupt and
unprincipled machine. The evil is graphically
portrayed by the writer, but he Is unable or un-

It would be aa unfortunate day for Europe
should France and England get into trouble. Those
two countries can far better afford to be friends

repetition at Tripoli of French proceedings at
Tunis would be likely to open the whole question
settled by the Berlin treaties; so at least the British
Government thinks, and so it seems it has notified
the Government of France. The world would
regret to see a serious difficulty spring from thf%
cause. The new life in France can be harbored for
a greater emergency. A war at this time in Europe
would force combinations of the most gigantic
character, perilous alike to human progress and

was not fatal. They remember the President's in-
augural about their.polygamous institutions, and

Tee whole business of the national crime is en-
veloped by the pulpit under the general head of

The discussion into which Colonel Bob Ingersoll
has bewitched Hon. Jere Black will do the cause of

It is now asserted by some of the independent
papers that the attempted assassination of Presi-

A writer in the London Queen, which is tho
lady's newspaper, sees in the predominant influ-
ence of women in England a significant presage of
the country's decline. Where women are very im-
portant there is something wrong with the men,
argues the writer, and points in proof of this to the
fate of Greece and Rome. And are Boston and
Chicago also doomed?
The New York Tribune does noli relish the idea
of the Vice-President being a dignified do-nothing,
for tho reason that, as he has no aciive duty to per-
form in tho Administration, he naturally drifts
from it in the matter of sympathy. As a remedy,
the Tribune would have him made a member of the
Cabinet, without a portfolio, so that he thus could
be an aid to the President.

While Governor Roberts is dividing with Gui-

EThe disability of the President is a fruitful topic
for discussion by the newspapers just now. The
case of George III is brought from the closet and
given frequent airing, which leads a naughty editor
to remark that George did not become insane, and
consequently disabled as a ruler, until after the
adoption of the American constitution. Can it be
possible that reading that document had anything
to do with his becoming a crank?

In London a young clergyman was descanting to
a friend on the mode he proposed for governing

as, if you can keep clear of politics and religion,
you will live peacebly and die respected." Gov

a decided improvement in the President's condi-
tion this morning. He slept very well during the
night, and bis pulse at this hour is 86, which is

to be exercised in his diet.

from Mavsville to the Courier Journal rays; The
Big Sandy Railroad Company, now constructing
their line through Carter county, are having
trouble with an organization known as the Natives.

the men was robbed and afterward shot to prevent

bridges were driven from their work. The county

would b^ running through from the Ohio River in a
few weeks if the builders were allowed to go on
with work peaceably.

county, July 15-
I am now a wool-grower. I like my now oc-
cupation; I regm d it a healthy and indepen-
dent one; in fact, you are not dependent upon,
any man; no failure ill crops, no cotton-worm,
and, lastly, no elections to engage the minds
and time of the sheep. The ileec© is worth
IS to 30 cents, and tlie flocks eat up the
grass and weeds, instead of having to plow
and hoe them up. as the farmers do in raising
cotton. I regard the wool-growing interest as
being in its infancy in tliis country. 1 believe
when Gould's great western railway system is
completed that will open up this western coun-
try that thousands of immigrants will pour
into it and engage in stock and sheep raising.
When the question of water is settled by
boring artesian wells all through the dry belt,
millions of hcrses, cattle, sheep and goats will
roam over this now bread expense, and will
add to the happiness of tho noble people who
wiii settle here, and to the material wealth of
the whole qonntry. j. a. k.

Texas as a Cotton State.
The great State of Texas stands third in tho
list of total production, while first in popula-
tion among the cotton States proper, but ninth
ju yield per acre—37-100 of a bale. This latter
fact mav surprise some parsons, but it is ia
part accounted foy as an accideoit of tho soasofi,
the year of 1879 having been an unusually dry
one," and therefore especially unfavorable to a
country in which so laxg« a proportion of the
staple is grown on the upland soil. Among
these, the boavy black prairie soils,
so highly productive in favorable seasons,
are notoriously the first to suffer from
drouth. In ordinary seasons the average yield
in Texas would approach that of Mississippi or
South Carolina, the returns show that o2 per
cent of the cotton product of Texas is grown
in the northeastern portion of the State—north
of the thirty-seoond parallel and east ot tha
ninety-eighth meridian, and that within this
region the production is highest in tho counties
adjoining lied river, the product averaging
10 100 of a bale 'oer acre. Southward of th®
thirty-second parallel the average yield is
34-100 per acre. The coast counties produce
but litSe cotton. Inland, between Red l iver
and San Autonio, about ^ par cent of tha
total product is grown on bl<tck prairie and,
the average product per acre on sue and
being in isfo S4rl00 of a bale per aL,re. Within
tho Est decade the region of cotton produc-
tion has extended seventy-five miles west-
