I was winding in and out among 
the hills of Pennsylvania on u rail- 
road train when seized with ado- 
sire to smoko. The smoking car 
was an ordinary one, and about 
half-filled with men in blouse and 
overalls, smoking day pipes. Win n 
1 selected a seat I found a leather 
bag on the floor and gently kicked 
It out of the way. It moved inn 
grudging way and 1 sat down and 
put my feet ou It. 1 luvd smoked 
my cigar about half up when one of 
the miners, having finished his pipe, 
knocked the ashes out, lounged over 
to me, and said: 

"I wouldn’t bear down too hard 
on the stuff, mister." 

"Oh! the bag?" 

"Yes; I wouldn’t kick around too 
heavy on It." 

“Got some tools In there you uro 
afraid may get broken, eh?” 

‘‘We call it dynamite, sir!" 

“Great Scott, man, but you don’t 
mean to say—" 

“Yes, it's dynamite," he miletly 
observed, as ho sat down beside mo 
and reached for the bag. "I sup-

he couldn’t huve died any faster nor

As to about a dozen others, I've 
seen 'em standing on n particular 
spot, been knocked down myself by 
the concussion, and reached my feet 
again to find a hole In the ground 
broad enough and deep enough to 
bury u span of horses in. The per- 
sons had vanished. I can't say 
whether they went up nr down, 
though we sometimes did find evi- 
dences ii the trectops to show that 
they rViostly went up.” 

“How horriblo to lie wiped off tho 
face of the earth in that manner!" 

“Well, it’s better than being 
smothered in a coal mine or run over 
by a t rain of ears. Did you ever see 
the ldg hole iii the ground over at 
Fox Hill?” 

“No.” • 

“That’s a place worth seeing, sir. 
There were fourteen miners in the 
party, I bellevo. They were carry- 
ing a lot of dynamite and sat down 
to rest and smoke. One of thorn 
built a lire to roast some chestnuts 
and it is supposed a stick of dyna- 
mite came in contact with it." 

“Why supposed?" 

“1 localise there was none of the 
fourteen left to explain matters, you 
see. One instant there were thir- 
teen men enjoying their pipes about a 
fire In Ihoivoods whilst t he fourteenth 
was shoving chestnuts into tho 
fire. Iu the next there was a boom 
— bang- earthquake which rattled 
tin' windows ten miles away, and 
people reached the spot to find a 
hole in the gr* und twenty-ono feet 
long, » isfi-i u feet deep and fourteen 
feet wide.” 

“The grave of all!" 

“Well, hardly. There was no 
need of u grave. I believe they 
found some fragments half a mile 
away in 11 tree top, but not enough 
worth burying." 

"And have you no fear of such a

ful stuff, as I said before— much 
nicer and cleaner to bundle than uny

gunpowder for awhile, but this 
beats it out of sight. Fond of wit- 
nessing explosions, sir?" 

“No, indeed, I’m not, and I won’t 
breathe till you menurooff the train. 
It ought to be against tho law to 
carry dynamite around in this reck- 
less fashion."

“Free Wool.” 


That excellent journal, the Rural 
New Yorker, lias been carrying on a 
discussion in its columns on the rela- 
tion of the farmets to the tariff, which 
lias developed some very interesting 
facts. One of these is tlie refutation 
of tlie contention of the free traders 
that “free raw materials" arc a neces- 
sity for the American manufacturer, 
in order that he may “compete in the 
markets of the world.” Take wool 
for an illustration. The free traders 
have made it free in the Wilson Bill, 
on the plea that it benefits the man- 
ufacturers of cloths. The duty placed' 
on the finer grades of wool by the Mc- 
Kinley Bill is 11 cents a pound. An 
ordinary business suit weighs about 
six pounds, including linings, trim- 
mings, buttons, etc. But counting 
these as all wool, and admitting for 
the sake ol argument that the duty is 
paid by the man who buys the suit 
(which is by no means true,) and yet 
the tarifl raises the price of the suit 
only 66 cents! The Rural discusses 
this point as follows: 

"Allowing the price of labor and 
the price of linings, trimmings and 
the materials that go to make up the 

33 cents; on trousers, t 6 tf cents; on 
under shirts, or drawers, from four to 
six cents; pair ol socks one cent; 
woman's dress, twenty-six cents, 
child’s flannel dress, 5 ' 2 cents wo- 
man’s or child's stockings, oneto two 
cents a pair; broadcloth suit, sscenis 
one yard carpi ting, nine cents These 
figures are based upon the supposi- 
tion that all the cloths arc made of 
wool only, bnt if the cloths have a 
mixture of cotton or shoddy, then 
these figures would all he less ac- 
cording ns there is more shoddy and 
lwis wool. 

“Would this very slight difference 
in the cost of free wool clothing in- 
duce the people to buy so much more 
I as to cause 'great factories to spring 
| up like magic, employing increased 
I workmen enough to consume the 
, extra amount of products which farm- 
J ers, driven by free wool out of sheep- 
! raising, would have to grow to replace 
the losses caused by the annihilation 
ol sheep and wool industries? Would 
the small saving on woolen clothing 
be any compensation for the millions 
of loss that would accrue to the coun- 
! try by the destruction of 45.000,000 
| sheep and their prodnet, which now 
[ give employment to hundreds of 
| thousands? Texas alone has more 
1 than 100,000 engaged in sheep in- 
dustries. Would free wool enable our 
manufacturers to export large quanti- 
ties of cloth to sell in markets where 
J they would come in competition with 
I those nations who have not only free 
wool, but low wages?” 

Hon. George W. Owens, formerly a 
Representative in Congress from a 
Pennsylvania District, sent a com- 
munication on this subject to the 
Ways and Means Committee some 
weeks ago, which discusses the same 
topic, and shows up the fallacy of the 
free trade position. Mr. Owens is a 
farmer. He takes the position that a 
retention ol the duty on imported 
wools is necessary, because the Amer- 
ican farmer cannot possibly pay Amer- 
ican wages to his farm help and com- 
pete successfully with the wool kings 
of Australia, Argentina and South 
Africa, where wages are nominal, and 
where a warmer climate, giving pas- 
ture throughout the year, renders 
wool production so cheap. Mr. 
Owens says: 

“livery one knows that a good, 
neat, all-wool suit of clothes can he 
bought for about $12, and a warm 
heavy, coarse, all-wool suit of clothes 
for :>7 and less. 

“I just this moment weighed a fine 
diagonal wool suit, also a coarse wool 
suit (coat, pants and vest,) and they 
weighed five and six pounds respect- 
ively, Now, the protection the wool 
grower now has in each of these suits 
amounts to 60 or 70 cents. A mer- 
chant might lay down two suits of 
clothes “before a customer, and say 
that one was worth 516 and $16.75, 
and we might defy any member of 
Congress or any one to tell which 
suit had tlie greater value, the differ- 
ence is so little. It might be the 
make or the lining, or it might not 
be there at all. Clothing is reasona- 
bly cheap, and no one is complaining 
of the price. 

“I have now before me bills of sale 
of wool made from 1886 to 1892 tor 
unwashed clothing and combing wool 
at from 26 to 28 cents per pound. The 
same quality of wool to-day will not 
net more than 15 to 16 cents per 
pound. In fact, my merchant in- 
forms me that it is dull even at those 

"Yet we are advised to keep our 
sheep. Why should we do so? Sheep, 
which in former years brought from 
$3 to $4 per head on the farm, are 
now dull at $2, and they are not sold 
to farmers. They are sent to market 
and slaughtered. And when this de- 
struction is complete the consumer 
will pay dearly for foreign-made 
clothing. But the advocates ot free 
wool say that our manufacturers must 
have free raw material. What is raw 
material? That which is raw mate- 
rial to one is the finished product to 
another. It would perhaps be safe to 
define Itas any commodity that comes 
to 11s from nature's God without any 
tabor in it. 

“But is wool of this character? Did 
you ever take care of a flock of sheep, 
protect them from dogs and other en- 
emies, herd and feed them, assist a 
new-born lamb on a cold winter 
morning to take its first nourishment 
from an indifferent, stubborn mother?

How It Was Accomplished by Hunter 

Hunter Sellick has for several 
years been the possessor of two fine 
row moose, and his great ambition 1 
has been to go into the moose-rais- j 
ing business. Year after year ho 
has endeavored to capture a male 
moose, but up to this winter billed. . 
Some time ago he left Moncton for 
the forest country lying between tho 
head waters of the Toblguo and 
Miramichi rivers. For clays his 
search was unavailing, until one 
day, about thirty miles from any 
settlement and in tho heart of the 
forest, he sighted tho object of his 

It was a magnificent specimen, 
nearly six feetAigh. At this season 
its antlers had been shed, but tho 
new ones were already jutting forth. 
The dogs were set to nipping tho 
moose in the rear, driving it toward 
n tree. Sellick, creeping round, 
suddenly threw his lasso over tho 
animal's head, twisted tho rope 
nrouiul a tree und had tlie moose a 

It is corn para tively easy for a suc- 
cessful hunter to bring home a dead’ 
moose, but it is not so easy with a 
live one. It took live weeks, climb- 
ing over the hills, wading tho 
morasses or fording the rivers which 
marked the thirty miles' distaueo 
between the scene of the capture and 
the first settlement. The hunter ut 
times hud to employ a catamaran to 
cross the streams, the moose swim- 
ming behind. Finally I10 reached 
the Intercolonial, took a box car, 
which was just high enough lor tho 
moose, and brought his prize to 
Moncton. — >7. Y. Journal. 


Somothing About the Young Man Re. 
centiy Elected to This Office. 

Rev. Edward 13. Bagby, who was 
recently < looted to be chaplain of 
the house in place of Rev. S. \V. 
Hadda.vay, who died after a brief 
occupation of the office, is a very 
young man to occupy .so cunspicu- 
-ous a position, though Rev. W. If. 
Milhuru, tiie blind chaplain of tho 
senate, was chosen chaplain of tho 
house when but twenty-two years of 
age. Iiev. Mr. Dagby was born 
September lift, 1805, in King and 
Queen county, Va. , so t hat he is but 
little more than twenty-eight. He 
was reared in Richmond, obtained 
his education at Aberdeen academy, 
the Kentucky university and tho 
Yale divinity school. This young 
Virginian, enlisted in Christian 
work as a representative of the de- 
nomination of the Disciples of Christ, 
found his first charge along the line 
of the Chesapeake & Ohio railroad, 
ministering to the people 'of Rouee- 
vorte, Clifton Forge and Sinks 
Grove. From these little churches 
In these towns he went to Newport 
News to preach, uiitil he became en- 
gaged in evangelistic work among 
many churches, which he visited to 
conduct revivals. In April, 1891, 
the Vermont Avenue Christian

liud a very decided effect on railroad 
construction in the south. The to- 
tal number of miles of railway built 
In this section siuec the 1st of lust 
Junuary, 1893, is only fifty-seven 
miles less than was built during all 
of last year. The total new uiilcago

The Republican party of Grayson 
county has reached 011c of the most 
important periods in its history since 
tlie war. with the Grayson Engle as its 
banner and harmony and unity in its 
ranks, the Republican party will 
"turn tlie rascals out,” and then 
right wiil triumph over wrong, and 
there will be a chance to undo the rot- 
ten devices by which this county’s 
government is carried on. Yes, the 
rings and the cliques will be turned 
down and clean, honest men put in 

On looking over the Hartford Her- 
ald I noticed nn article from Rock- 
port, Ky., signed bv Suggs In his 
article he refers to the Democratic 
party ol Kentucky as having formula- 
ted so many Democratic platforms. 
Yes, it lias planned a great many, in 
tact, one two many for its own good. I 
It planned tjiat "immortal document" 
of '92 and it was that self same docu- I 
ment that has caused factories to be 
torn down and soup houses erected 
instead, and in consequence of that. 
Kentucky planned platforms, upon 
which thousands of working men 1 
are crying lor work and tens of tlious- ! 
ands of wives and children are calling ■ 
for bread, and vet the grandest dec- 
laration a Kentuckian can make is ! 
"I am a Democrat." 

By my referring to Suggs’ article 
don't understand me to Ire in iavorof 
Compulsory Education, I don’t l>e- 
lieve there is the slightest chance of 
a compulsory education bill being 
passed by the present Legislature 
But understand me, I don’t propose to 
be educated in Democratic principles. 

If I can’t be educated without the aid 
of Democratic principles I won’t be 1 
educated at all, though it does not 
require much education to lie a Dem- 
ocrat— just a little nursing with 
prejucice and fed on rotten princi- 
ples fora short time and a Demo- 
crat will grow up like- a weed. Now’, 1 
Mr. Suggs, we don't think that it 
will take a compulsory education bill 
to defeat Watt Jlar.lin, but something 
in the shape of'Geo. W. Denny and 
when you write another article on ed- 
ucation please remember that Democ- 
racy and education don't go together. 
That Suggs may see the error of his | 
wav, and that The Rkithi.can may 
be prosperous, and that the Republi- 
cans party of Ohio county may be 
successful in November are the sin- 
cercst wishes of a Young Coon.

Mrs. Frank Leslie very often writes , 
about women and love. Among many 
ol the good tilings she has written is 
the following: "A woman withnoonc ■ 
to love her is the most miserable ot 
creatures. She is unable to do jus- j 
tice to the liest ol her nature. She 1 
either hardens and becomes cold, de- 
fiant, bitter and narrow, or she with- i 
ers and languishes like spring flow- 
ers in an vast wind."

Dr. W. Alexander will have opposi-

His letter is as follows:

In the history ol the neighborhood has 
such a deep work of grace been 
wrought. The crowds gather early 
and remain late nt the church nnd no 
less than forty-six souls have been ! 
converted. Many of the converts are 1 
old men and men of middle age. The 
interest is so great that on one occa- ! 
sion after night service a number ol 
Christians met at a private house and ! 
continued the services until near the 
dawn of day. 

About a month ago Mr. W. F. j 
Stevens, of No Creek, advertised in 
our columns for six head of cattle | 
which had strayed from his place | 
about two months before, and request- j

two weeks from the time of the first 
insertion of the advertisement he 
learned the whereabouts of his cattle. 
They had strayed twenty-five or thir- 
ty miles. Mr. Stevens not only re- 
covered the six head advertised, but 
two others, also, which he did not 
know had strayed off. This is only 
one of many practical illustrations 
that advertising pays. If there is

Nix Nrti HIiihii l» Mernlfy hy the 
Explosion ol n Niim Mill. 

Wednesday's Owensboro Messcn- 
gcrcontains the following account ol 
; the affair: 

Yesterday morning about 7:30 
| o’clock on the farm of Mr. John Mer- 
cer, about one mile from Crow-Htck- 
man, one of the most horrible acci- 
dents that was ever known in the his- 
tory of the county occurred. The boil- 
er of a portable saw mill belonging to 
Mr. Taylor Paris exploded, killing 
five men instantly nil 1 fatally injur- 
ing another so that Ui died i.i a few 
hours afterward. 

Those killed were: Taj - lor Paris, 
owner of the mill, John Mercer, Bob 
Salee, Ed Holder and Bill Varble. 

Jim Mercer was fatally injured and 
died in a few hours. 

A fire had been built in the fire box 
of the engine and a very small amount 
ol water was in the (toiler. Taylor 
Paris, John Mercer, Bob Salee, Bill 
Varble and lid Holder were standing 
near the engine getting warm. The 
engineer, Robert Reeves, did not like 
the way the engine was running and 
as Taylor Paris prepared to turn a lot 
of cold water into the red-hot boiler, 
warned him of tire danger. Seeing 
that Paris was going to turn the wat- 
er in he ran behind a large tree not 
far distant, and escaped unhurt Tay- 
lor Paris sufierred the penalty of his 
rashness, and was blown into atoms, 
along with the other men standing 

The effects of the explosion were 
terrific, the ground being plowed up 
by the fragments, pieces of iron be- 
ing hurled with awful velocity in all 
directions, and the men being torn to 
pieces and scattered in every direc- 
tion. Pieces of flesh were scatter- 
ed every where. Arms and legs, 
and heads and ribs were left dangling 
from the branches of the trees or scat- 
tered along the surface of the earth. 
The body of one of the unfortunate 
men was (lashed against a tree about 
forty feet distant from tbeetigiue. and 
such was the force with which it was 
traveling that it parted nearly in the 
middle, one piece going on one side 
of the tree and the second on the oth- ' 
er. Where the body struck the tree , 
was about forty feet from the ground. 

Two ot the unfortunate men had 
their heads blown off, and the | 
body of one these was blown against 
a tree, but au arm was blown oft and ! 
carried about thirty leet. 

The iragments of arms, legs and l 
bodies were gathered together as j 
completely as possible, it being nec- 
essary to cut down several large trees 
in the attempt. 

The details of the accident are so 
horrible and bloody and sickening 
that they can hardly be imagined. To 
get an idea of it, it is necessary to 
have been there.

Mr, Jesse II. Fulkerson, of the 
Pond Run country, died Sunday 
morning, and was Inn led Monday 
evening at the Pond Run graveyard. 
He was a lile long member of Pend 
Hun Baptist Church and was one ol 
the oldest anil most respected citizens 
of the county. The burial service 
was conducted under the auspices of 
the Masonic Irnternity ol which the 
deceased was a member. 

The good people of town were quite 
sorry to learn Sunday evening that 
Wash Duncan, the great mogul blind 
tiger, lia<1 been captured and returned 
here. He was capturned at Ilar- 
iliusbu f g last Friday by ex-Deputy 
Marshal C L Pate and brought here 
Sunday and lodged in jail. The peo- 
ple were hoping that Wash would 
never impose his unwelcome presence 
upon the town any more forever. 
Jailer Thompson paid the $25 reward 
which he had offered and withdrawn. 

That popular and excellent citizen 
and stalwart Democrat, Mr. II. P. 
Watts, of Rosine, is announced in 
our columns this week, as a candi- 
date for the office of Jailer, of Ohio ; 
county, subject to the action of the 
Democratic party, in the primary, 
March, 3 He is well qualified to fill 
the office he seeks and- his many 
friends will make a strong effort to 
secure his nomination and election. 
Owing to sickness in his family Mr. 
Watts has not been enabled to make 
as thorough a canvas as he had desir- 
ed to make, but trusts to his friends 
that his interests will be carefully 
looked after. 

Ralph Keith, a sixteen year old 
boy, who had been working for Mr. 
Dave Fowler, living near Madison- 
vil le, stole one of his ein ploy re 's horses 
Monday and escaped. On Wednesday 
he swapped the horse to Mr. Milton 
Park, who lives just below town, for 
a mule ami a dollar in money. Keith 
then came to Mr. Amos Miller’s and 
while he was negotiating another 
trade he was overtaken arid captured 
by Fowler ai:d a brother-in-law whose 
name we failed to learn. Fowler, 
however, had come by Mr. Park’s sta- 
ble and finding his horse took posses- 
sion of it and came 011 after Keith 
who gave the mule and the dollar 
back to Mr. Park. The parties took 
the young fellow back with them. 
Keith was from Jeffersonville, Indiana, 
but had been working in Fowler's 
neighborhood since last June. He 
has a brother in Elizabethtown and 
was, it is supposed, making his way

"Say, friend, 1 wish you would 
leave that out of tho paper." 

The objector to newspaper noto- 
riety was a pleasant-spoken young 
follow, and he continued argumenta- 

"Now, I’m a newspaper man my- 
self, and 1 know how you’re fixed. 
You’re sent hero to get tho news, 

• and naturally want to get nil of it. 
But if you'll keep that item out of 
tho paper for twenty-four hours, I'll 
give you a story worth printing." ! 

A mere two-line item against, 
perhaps, a column, here was an in- 
ducement that no newspaper man 
could resist, and the reporter was 
not proof against temptation. Still, 
lie was wise enough to stipulate that* 
the story should be given at once. 

“Well, you have our names 
nnd resideneo from the register," | 
said the young Beuediet-about-to-bc, 
"and we've hud quite a little ro* ! 
nianec. She belongs to one of 1 110 
best families in that country, where 
her father is quite a small magnate. 

1 went down thereabout three years 
ago and started a piper. I did 
pretty well nnd am probably ns well 
fixed financially as she is, but, un- ! 
fortunately, the old man and I 
couldn’t hitch. Before I knew what 
a charming daughter he had I trod 
on his political toes pretty sharply’ 
nnd he never forgave mo. The old 
lady, too, didn’t like me, partly tie- 
cause I was u newcomer nnd not re- 
lated to any of the local aristocracy, 
into which she wanted her daughter 
to marry. 

"Still, Bella liked me, and you 
know when you have the girl and 
the dog on your side a fellow can 
stand a good deal of snubbing. All 
went along very well for awhile. I 
projiosed and was accepted, but 
when I cumc to speak to the old man 
about it he fired me out bodily, or 
threatened to do so, nnd ordered 
me never to show my face in his 
house again. Knowing the old man, I 
and huving due regard for my 
face, I never did, but managed to 
moot Bella on the sly, although tho 
old folks watched her pretty closely. 

"Finally they decided to reniovo 
her from the contamination of my 1 
neighborhood, probably on tho thco- ] 
ry that separation is a cure for such ] 
cases. Accordingly they cumo to 
Washington for a month or so, pos- i 
sibly in hopes that some of these city 
swells might cut me out. But Bella 
managed to drop mo u note telling 
mo about it, so I followed them. 
They've been here about a week, 
stopping with friends — I couldn’t 
find out where until the other day, 

I hunted through all the hotels and 
haunted the streets in hopes of see- 
ing them, when finally I remembered 
that strangers in the city always go 1 
10 the eupltol about the first thing. 

"Then I took up my station in the 
rotunda every day, staying all day 
long. The watchmen evidently con- 
sidered me a new crank in town, but 
finally they came — the old man, tho ’ 
eld Itvcly *nd Bella. I pulled my hat ! 
down over my eyes and hid behind a 
newspaper until they had passed, 1 
and then I heard them inquiring the 
way to tho dome. When they got 1 
pretty well up the stairs 1 followed, t 
and at tho top, you know, it Is pretty 1 
dark, so by keeping on the opposite 
side I managed to escape tho old 1 
couple's eyes. 

“They were busy studying out tho I 
‘Apotheosis of Washington,’ while 1 
Bella was leaning against tho wall, * 
looking tired and homesick. I waited 
around for a chance to speak to her, ' 
but the old man kept her at his el- c 
bow, and 1 had about mude up my I 
mind that I would have to knock 
him down when an idea struck ine. 

"You know how sound travels * 
over that arch, so that people on 
opposite sides of the circle can talk 8 
to each other in whispers? I hud P 
been there beforo and knew all R 
about it, so I stood just aeross from c , 
Bella and spoke tier name. She j, 
jumped as if she had been shot. 

“ ‘Where ure you, Will?’ she ex- 
claimed, recognizing my voice at ^ 
once. Stic hud been thinking of mo, ’ 
she told mo afterward. 

“‘Hush!’ said I. ‘I'm just oppo- * c 
site you; talk to tlie wall and I can * c 
hear all you say.’ te 

“And maybe wo dhlu't talk. It w 
seemed a bit uncanny to be talking 
to a stone wall and huving your best 
girl answer back. Something like 
tlie old story of Pyramus and Tliisbe, 
only they talked through the wall, gi 
Well, she told me where she was 
stopping, and that it would be use- jj 
less for mo to try to see her nearer, 
as she was watched all tlie time. U 
"Just then tlie old man chimed in 
and asked her to whom she was v 
talking. Shu said only to herself. J 
As there was no one within fifty 
feet of her lie lmd to believe it. 

“Well, thut made mo mud nnd 
also gave me another idea. I lmd 
been looking up tlie district mar- Ll 
riugc laws and found thut 0110 could . 
get a license almost for tlie asking. U 
There was no time to be lost. I f l 
usked Bella if she would marry me *■* 
ut once, whether tlie old folks were p. 
willing or not, and she suid she 
would 'if she could get invay. Then V» 
wo cooked up u scheme. I was to 
get the license nnd engage a in 1 11 IS- 
ter, as 1 have just, done. To-mor- 
row night they are going to u con- [j 
cortoor something, utid Bella is to 
get sick and go home with her cousin I( 
about ninoo'clook. Only before going 
borne she will stop into tlie house of 81 
ft minister, whm wo will bo mar- .« 
ried.l tl 

"Now you easily see that tlie pub- 
lication of tin- fact that I have taken 
out u license would spoil ull our 
pluns, uml if you will keep it out ] 

you shall be one of the witnesses at f 0 j 
the wedding and kiss the bride, if 
she is willing." * ,n

Paris Is to Have Another Fair In 
1000 . 

Tho site of tho exposition of 1 !>00 
has boon definitely selected. At tlie 
meeting of the sub-committee es- 
pecially spjHiintixl to settle theques- 
tlou, it was decided that the Champ 
de Mars, the Troeailgro, the Es- 
planade des ^livalides, tlie Quail 
d’Orsny, tho Palais de I'Industrls 
and the surrounding ground should 
ull be devoted to the great world’s 
show that is to be held there at tlie 
eloso of tlie century, and that the 
banks of the Seine should be further 
connected by a bridge to be con- 
struetM between the Pont de la Con- 
corde nnd the Pont des Invalided 

It is interesting to note, now that 
tills problem has been solved, that 
ull the members of the subcommit- 
tee who attended tho meeting wero 
in favor of t his choice, M. .Berger, 
who was the solo absentee, being tlie 
only one who would hove preferred 
Auteuil; yet, us a matter of fact, 
M. Berger's views were origin- 
ally shared by most of ids col- 
leagues. It was objected, however, 
that tho distance from tlie center of 
the metropolis would be too great, 
and the Parisian tradesmen, fearing 
that u sniuller number of visitors 
would thus be attracted to the city, 
also made their voices heard with 
good effect. One by one the sub- 
committee were brought around to 
the opinion that the old she was, 
after all, the best, and the resolu- 
tion at which they huve, arrived 
completely settles the affair. 

One of the principal entraneus to 
the exhibition will lie on the Placo 
de la Concorde, but tlie square It- 
self will not be Interfered with, nor, 
indeed, will any attempt be mude to 
include such well-known establish- j 
mentsus Ledoyen's restaurant and 
tho cafe rhuntnnt of the Horloga, 
situated between the Place de la 
Concorde and the Palais do lTiulus- 
trie, within the liounduries of the 
world’s show. 

People have boon inquiring with 
much curiosity whether the Eiffel

It seemed to her quite irreverent to

Everything was very generous nnd

on leaving she was amuzed to have

tribute to his mother; "On last Wed- 
nesday morning we were called to 
stand by tlie death-bed of her who 
first taught our infant lips to lisp 
mother. Only those who have pass- 
ed through such an ordeal can realize 
how deep is tlie sorrow under which 
we are now bowed. We reached her 
, bed-side only to find thatconsciousness 
j had taken its flight, and to our an- 
| guialied pleadings no answer came 
| front her dentil chilled lips. She who 
nursed us through all the years of 
childish sunshine, and shadow, who 
i was ever ready to cure with the mag- 
ic of a mother’s kiss, has left us and 
the angel throng has welcomed the 
• loved one home. Those toil harden- 
j ed hands that labored so willingly to 
smooth our boyhood's rugged path 
| are now pressed upon a lifeless breast.

I and sad weary eyes, blind to earthly 
scenes, are opened where teardrops 
| will dim them never more. Far

j we have laid her to rest where the 
I wildflowers of Texas shall watch the 
| lonely grave. Dear mother, angel
