JENNY LIND'S GREAT TRIUMPH.
Won Jealous Rival by Sweetness of
A beautiful little ineijdent is told1
conlcernling Jenny Lindl and Grisi,
whlen they were rivals for- popular
favor in Londonii. Both were invited
to s~ing the, samei nighit at ai court con

being the y(?anger. sanrg first, and was
so disturoise by the 11ierce, scornfl
1(ook of Grisi that shn was at the point
of failure, when suddenly an inspira

was striking his final chords. She
asked him to rise and took ihe vacant

Softly at first the plaintive notes
floated on the air. swelling louder and
richer every moment. The singer
seemed to throw her whole soul into
that weird, thrilling, plaintive "pray

and ended in a sob. There was sil
ence-the silence of admiring wonder.
The audience sat spell-bound. Jenny
Lind lifted her sweet eyes to look
into the scornful face that had so dis
concerted her. There was no fierce
expression now; instead, a tear-drop
glistened on the long, black lashes.

i)ulsiveness of a child of the tropics.

Request Blanks Give Trouble.
Gov. Hayward has addressed a
etter to the State board of dispen
ary directors stating his position in
egard to the use of request books.
his letter was brought out by the
etion of the county auditor of Lee,
ho positively refuses to handle the
ooks on the ground that the other
uties of his office take up all of his
ime. 'There was also a letter writ
en by County Auditor G(ibbes of
tichland, along the Fame lines. At
recent conference with the attorney
eneral and Commissioner Tatum it
-as decided to place the responsibil
y on the county boards and the
tter written by the governor to the
tate board explains his idea as to
be law. It is as foliows:

State Board of Directors, Coluim

Dear Sir: Your recent cammuni
ation, through Mr. M. H. Mobley,
[erk, enclosing copy of resolutions
dopted at a meeting of the State
oard of directors, held March 6th,
906, in regard to the use of request
ooks, has been received. With this
mmunication came also a copy of
letter from Mr. W. S. James. mem
er of the county board of control
f Lee county, which beais upon the
ame subject., - '
The record before- nie1oes not e
ain anly letter or official communiea
ion from the county auditor of Lee

he letter of Mr. James that the

sed because it would make, as they

The first step, it occurs to me. is

I wish to assure your board of my
urose to operate with you at all

ooks should not be generally used
will not be through any lack of co
peration on my part. And I will be
'ery glad if you will at any time call
2 attention to any specific direelic
ion on tihe part of any officers ap
ointed by me..
I am advised by the comptroller
eieral that the county auditors on
ount of the large volume of busi
ess where the use of request books
enforced will not hrave time to
heck up the books and give sucb
me to their other duties, in connee
in with the tax department, as they

uditor is in connection with the
