Entered In tne post-office, at Hammond, N. V., as second-class mall matter. THURSDAY, SEPT. 9, 1886. It is said that James G. Blaine is prepar- ing an exhaustive review of our foreign re- lations from an international law standpoint. The document is looked for with inter est, under existing circumstences. The piesent secretary of state has shown his in- efficiency in regard to the fishery questions and the people wish for further light on these important subjects.— The Courier. One of the first remarks made by Col- lector Dan Magone upon his entry into the Custom House was this: \It has been printed that I said I was heart and soul for civil service reform. I was incorrectly reported. I say now that I am for civil service reform, but I am for civil service reform when the law is hon- estly and correctly administered.\ A fair conclusion from this expression would be that the new collector, in the administration of his important office,will be guided by the platform adopted b r the national Democracy in 1884. He is for '•an honest civil service refoim.\ Let us have it—at least in the New York Custom House.— If. T. Sun. THP FAMILY EDUCA'TOR.-T-Webster's un- abridged Dictionary is; a great family edu- cator, and'no family of Children ought to be brought up without having ready access to this grand volume. It will answer hun- dreds of questions to the wide-wake child. It is an ever-present and reliable sehoolmua- ter to the whole family, HOW IT .13 DOSE. OUR BURYIHtf GEOUSDS. «$sSa The suggestions of our esteemed Glovers- ville correspondent in last week'3 ADVKR- .TISES, concerning the Hammond burying round, should be considered by the people in the triad and reverential spirit in which they are offered. In the stirring battle of life, the wild brier and other unsightly growths are too apt to be permitted to grow up over the abode of the dead. This is true of almost every small burying ground a? well as the one sit- uated near the village of Hammond. It should, however, not be permitted to con- tinue The matter of beautifying and caring for this burying ground has often been dis- cussed and the good intentions of the peo- ple shown; but the difficulty has been to gel a goodly number of the people interested on the subject at once. This can now be easi- ly done through the medium of the ADVER- TISER and our space is cheerfully offered for the exchange of ideas as to the better way of malting the needed improvements. We believe the people are willing to spend some of their time and money to make the graves of loving relatives and friends neat and cared for; as it is the only tribute the living can pay to their cherished memories. It affords the satisfaction of knowing that we are paying that respect to our forefathers that we anticipate will be shown to our- selves, when the revolutions of time deposit the present busy generation in \God'sacre.\ The appearance of neglected graves causes a repugnance to death and inclines to turn the buyant.minds of the young from dwelling on the gloomy associations that it presents to them. Many suggestions might be made as to how the burying ground in Hammond could be improved and given a more cheerful as- pect. There should be a suitable entrance with a good road. The graves should be carefully attended m the manner indicated by our reverend correspondent. Mr. Bustis has made liberal offers as regards the land and, we believe, all that is needed is a little agitation to accomplish the end in view. Let the people express their views. EX-CONSUL Albert D. Shaw of Water- town has withdrawn his name from the canvass for the republican nomination for congress in the St, Lawrence-Jefferson district. \The contest is between the pres- ent member Hon. A. X, Parker and Hon. D. 8. Lynde, both of St, Lawrence coun- ty. These gentlemen are making a per- sonal canvass and both seem confident of securing the nomination. In this district a nomination on the republican ticket is equivalent to an election.-Zoiowille Times. A GOLDEN AXE. The Hew York World has struck upon a happy medium through which the sym- pathy of the American public for Mr. Gladstone is t o be conveyed. It is a gol- den axe that is to cost many thousand of dollars; the amount to be raised by small contributions. Thispresentation to the Grand Old Man, who although seventy—six years of age, amuses himself by chopping down large trees, is a suitable one, and will give Mr. Gladstone the satisfaction of knowing that if, as some claim, the openly expressed sympathy tor him by the people of this country contributed to his late defeat, they still sympathise with him in his overthrow as they would have rejoiced with him had victory perched upon his banner. The World has taken hold of the matter with its accustomed energy and already several thousands have been contributed t o the fund. We would sptcgest that the axe be edged •with steel, so 'that the Ri^bt Honorable wood-chopper may be able to use it in future when he engages in his f avorite pastime. The commissioner of internal revenue has prepared a set of regulations relating to the manufactures and sale of oleomar- garine which will be furnished to collec- tors for their guidance. TIIP regulations begin with a definition of oleomargarine as given in the act of congress recen tly passed, and enters into every minute detail. The manner in which oleomargarine is hedged in by legal restrictions and the extreme penalty for the violation of the same is not any too assuring t o the bogus butter industry. NATURE'S 00NTULSION8. 7'he earthquake that visited Charles- ton, S. 0. , on Tuesday night and Wed- nesday morning of last week was one pf the most terrific concussions that has shaken this country in a great many years. Although Charleston was the point where the severest shocks occur- red and wherchuman lives and property were relentlessly sacrificed, it was felt with more or less severity throughout the entire southern and most of the mid- dle states. The first shock occurred about 10 o'- clock Tuesday evening, and drove the frightened inhabitants out of their tum- bling houses into the streets, for safety, where many of them spent thenHit . A milder shock took place about 8 o'clock. Wednesday morning. Altogether, about 60 persous were killed or seriously woun- ded and the city itself is a heap of un- occupied ruins. Business is entirely suspended and dismal jj'oom prevails. \•&'• A young man at the risk of his lite saves a beautiful young girl from drowning, Her grateful father seized the rescuer of his daughter by the hand, and in a voice tremulous with emotion, said: '- 'Noble youth, to you lam indebted for everything which makes life dear to me. Which re- ward will you .take—$-200,000 or the hand of my daughter?\ ' Til take the daughter,'» replied the heroic rescuer, thinking there- by to get both the girl and the money. •'You have well chosen,\ replied the grent- ful father; *'I could not have given you the §200,000 just yet anyhow, as I have not yet laid up that amount, being only n popr editor, but my daughter is yours for life. Take her and be happy. God bless you, my children I\ WEBSTER'S UNABRIDGED With or without Patent Index.
