dead. Mr. Savidgc also mourns the
loss Of a valuable dog in the same
manner. About a week ago seven
pieces of meat containing strychnine
were found outside of Mr. Vogt's
door. Suspicion rests upon a cer
tain party and they will have to bo
very careful of their movements.
To have such rank poison found on
our streets is not right.

Few set tables. You are served
in the morning before you get out of
bed with a cup of coffee as good as
can bo found anywhere iu tho world,
and some bread or little Creole pie
crust cakes. There is no trouble
about your meals. There is a res
taurant on every corner or so, or
you can have your meals served hot,
and at the most reasonable rates.
As a general thing, however, they
do not "go in heavy" for breakfast
here. Your coffee is supposed to
satisfy you until middny, when you J
tako a slight lunch at some saloon.
About C iu the evening you sit down
to the big meal of tho day. Supper
there is none, unless you drop in at
the theatre, after which you cat
something light. Thus, at least, you
will find the natives doing, and those
who bavo been visiting New Orleans
each winter for years will tell you
that it is the most comfortable way
to live bete and best suited to cli
mate. SECRET ORDERS.
The term "secret oiders" is
scarcely applicable to tho largo num
ber of organizations which are now
instituted tluoughout the world.
While it is true that they do not
open their doors to tho chance
passer-by, yet any person of good
moral character, health, etc., can
gain admission; their laws, rules,
hystem, proceedings, olllcials, placo
and timo of meeting are known and
published. Willi what can bo prop
oily termed "secict orders," it is
entirely different. The associations
of the prwont day are "fmtwiml
societies," not "secret . orders."
Tin only things secret idmut Ihem
arc the mulh'ods by which Hip mem
bers recognize each olhcr, and the
ritualistic language by which trulhs
and principles are taimlil, and prac
tical lessons illustrated. All else is
fully published lo the wol Id at large.
Therefore, "fraternal societies" is :i
much more appiopriatu tcim than
"secict oiders," for, in truth, they
aie no more seciet than the piivate
meetings of a leligious sect, a busi
ness firm, a legislative body, a home
circle, or any other gathering where
none but bona fide members arc admitted.
THE SINGLE WOMAN.
Theic is no sweeter and more in
teresting chaiacter, whether in fic
tion or real life, than the spinster
who has, for some good reason, re
fused a lover's proposal, and being
now past the hour of old maid. The
oi deal through which she has passed
seems to have refined her feelings
and of itself insensibly drawn to her
the icgards of all who know her his
tory. Such a one is eminently lova
ble and sympathetic, f6rward in all
good works, and a warm fiicnd of
manicd men and women, the con
fidante of many a tender passion.
Age docs not wither the beauty of
her disposition. She never slanders,
never ictails ill-naluicd gossip; but,
on the other hand, though prompt to
put in a sensible word on a crisis,
does not deem it her mission to sot
all the people around her light. She
makes an admirable aunt, and is very
necessary to a largo circle of cousins.
Many a young fellow on the thres
hold of life bears a kindly rcniem
branco of her for the good natuic
and tact with which she helped him
to steer clear of shoals whcic he
might otherwise have been wrecked.
