El Paso’s favorite for governor and

date for governor on the harmonized
‘Democratic’ ticket, has formally
opened his campaign. His Comanobe
speech wee not remarkably brilliant,
bat abounded In gooft business sense
and was devoid of demagogy. While
indulging in no direct criticism of
either President Cleveland or Governor
Hogg, Mr. Lanham made It plain that
he & not folly In aooord with the

investigation shows only that Mr.

probable intent of defrauding anyone.

that he has any intention off leaving

doubt. But it is also oertaln that the
long oity campaign took np all of his
time and his business interests.In New

had already been too long postponed.

The Repubdoau press is overesti-
mating the effect of Senator Hill’s
speech His arguments are easily an-
swered and as Senator Mills, of Texas,
has agreed to take upon himself that
task, it will certainly be well done.
Mr. Hill displayed very poor taste
when he oritiolsed the administration
and the rest of his speech was simply
against the income tat because it does
not suit New York bond holders.
Among the reforms of the next mun-
icipal administration there shonld be
included a way of oheoking the collec-
tor of taxes so that the treasurer wonld
know each day the amount paid to the
collector. Let a better aud more com-
plete form of book-keeping be adopted.

Mr. Benedict was public printer dur-
ing President Cleveland’s first adipinis-
tration and now succeeds F. W; Palm-
er, the man who five years ago succeeded
him. In the interval he has been a dep-
uty in the office of the ffew York secre-
tary of state, from which he retired on
the expiration of his term at the begin-
ning of the year. He has been quite
prominent in-New York state politics
and was an aspirant last fall for the
Democratic nomination as secretary cf

Warwick, Orange county, was Mr.
Benedict’s birthplace, and he was bom
in the year 1889. He received an aca-
demio education and taught school for
awhile and then Went to work as a book-
keeper in a railroad office. He had a,
taste for journalism and was a some-’
what liberal contributor to the local pa-
pers even before he moved to Ulster
county in 1868 and started the Ellen-
ville Press, of which he made a very
successful paper. His brother, G. H.
Benedict, was interested with him in
The Press, and in 1873 the firm pur-

In 1879 Mr. Benedict was elected a
member of the legislature and was aft-
erward re-elected for four successive
terms. At the end of his legislative serv-
ice he was appointed deputy state comp-
troller, which position he held when he
was first made public printer.' In Al-
bany Mr. Benedict formed a friendship
with Mr. Cleveland, then governor,
which has been maintained ever since,
and to which his appointment as public
printer is said to be due.
In the early days of the republic the
government printing was done by con-
tract. In 1852 the office bf superintend-
ent of congressional printing was cre-
ated. In 1876 the office was changed
from congressional to public printer and
the present system was organized, i Mr.
A. M. Clapp was the first public print-
er, and he was succeeded by John D.1
Defrees aud Sterling F. Rounds.

Reynold* Painting Siddons.
Some of Reynolds’ methods were pe-
culiar. He usually painted his sitters
from their reflection in a mirror and
not from a direct view. He always re-
mained standing while at work, and be
rarely signed a portrait.
One notable exception, however, was
made in the case of his magnificent por-
trait of Mrs. Siddons as the Tragic
Muse, which was painted when the
master was 60 years old and when Mrs.
Siddons was 28. The great actreBs, fail-
ing at first to recognize a sort of em-
broidery which the artist had added to
the edge of her robe, soon perceived that
it contained the words, “Joshua Rey-
nolds pinxit, 1784,” whereupon Sir
Joshua assured her that he would be
proud to have bis name go down to pos-
terity on the hem of hey garment! * Be-
fore commencing this picture the ar-
tist, instead of posing the sitter himself,
requested Mrs. Siddons to give him her
own idea of the Tragic Muse, and she
immediately assumed the pose in which
the picture was painted.—(Scribner’s

There are 100 different varieties of
memory, and perhaps we cannot alto-
gether choose which we will possess,
though every Bort, when yre have the
germs of it, may be cultivated.
To learn anything by heart the best
plan is to read a sentence and repeat it
without a book, then read the next sen-
tence and repeat the two, and so on.
Repetition is of great importance, “line
upon line.” More is learned and re-
membered by reading through one book
twice than by reading two books once.
After a thing has been learned it
must be recalled and gone over at in-
tervals, or the impression will fade
away. Dr. M. Granville says we
should take out our own ideas and dust

The most farcical rumor affecting rail-
