Why is it that the administration is giving General Fitzbugb Lee no chance to distinguish hiniself?- Ann Arbor Argns. That qoestion bas been asked s a hnndred times, Bro. Beakes, and we know of no reasou otber tban that he is a democrat and will not Jisten to proruises if be will change bis politics. -Livingston Demoorat. Tbe new woman shonld remove to the Phillipines, where in the island of Lnzon, of wbioh Manila is the capital, sbe may find many of the rights she seeks. For instance the wife is not reqnired to snrrender ber name in marriage nor does custoni sanction tbe praotice. Cbilrden bear tbe name of the mother as well as of the father. Tbe wife's property is exempt from any claims of tbe hnsband. And tbey cali these people savages. What bas tbe new woman to say of snch savages? Bismnrk is dead, fnll of yeais and of bonors and tbe greatest atatesman of bis generation. Be remade the map of Earope. He established the balanoe of the powers in Europe which bas maintained peaoe sinoe the Franco-Prnssian war.
