hand and W. G. Hardin on the other.
No one in the affair escaped unhurt.

Hardin's pistol. He expired in a few
minutes. About twenty shots were
fired. John Ellison and Hardin per
forated each other with bullets
Hardin cannot live and John Ellison
is seriously wounded. The par ieu-
lars of the quarrel cannot be ascer

A MAXKEIt'i LOTE FOR CATS.
Hla Will ('nte.ted oa tbe Ground
fan Unsound Mind.
Baltimore, April 10 The contest
over tbe will of Gustavns Nicholson,
the bankpr, bus brought to light some
of the old gentleman s queer charac-
tens' ica. Tlie will bequeathed the
entire estate, va'ued at $1(53,000, to
Isaac L. Ncholson, and the nieces
and nephews who are not on the list
are makius the cmtest. Nicholson
had a hobby for making wills, aud
made over a dozen in the course of a
few yearp. It was stated by servants
of the old banker that he lived tn a
little back rcoai of Mb fine reslder.ee
on Harrison street. Il l love for cats
was the most peculiar of all his i ccen-
tricitles. He kept a regular asylum
for cats. Ho had over a dozen of his
own tabbies, and these were permitted
to invite their friends, so that hosts of
cats were entertained at the banker's
home. He took cat9 to bed with bim,
and sometimes a matronly cat would
provide a nest in his comfortable
feather bed, and there a litter of
kittens would be born and raised,
At one time he had six Maltese cats
living with him in hi room. These
were his favorites. The ordinary cats
weie kept in the kitchen. All tbe
cats would rnn to him and purr when
he entered the house, and he would
sit or lie with them playing all over
mm. rne counsel lor toe cant-etan's,
in his presentation of the case, ftHted
that the death of Columbus Nichol
son, a bro: her of Gustavus, and the
fact that there had been for seme time
a difficulty between them, Sfetned to
weigh upon the mind cf Gustuvus, aud
to ou .'11 a genial gentleman he became
addiuUd to drink, and lived in the
room of the tig house alone with his
cats. Ccmnel for tbe executors claim
that, while be was a hit e eccentric, in
all business matteis he showed clear
and excellent judgment.
The Modera Newspaper.
Washington Sunday Gazette: It is a
fact which thinking men have long
seen that a few sensational newspa
pers in this country had carried their
love for sensationalism too far. Un
der the name of news and with the
plea that the people would have it,
these newspapers have pandered to
the lowest tastes of the lowest stratum
in society. The result has been that
in many minds the press generally
snflVre. "From one specimen judge
all," say the preachers who have in
mind certain aisrepuiauie sneeis in
New York and elsewhere, whose col
umns reek daily with a filth unre
deemed by fancy and with a vulgarity
from which no ray of w it shines. Wo
freely concede nil" this.and will confess
that perhaps it would be well to put
even legitimate news of a certain char
acter in the background. But we in
sist that the vast majority of the press
does not come under the opprobrium
justly resting upon the few speci-
nals urging earnestly that any
tendency to vicious sensationalism,
vulgarity and slang be checked and
reproved. Good, xtrong wonts are
8)oken in behalf of a rieid adherence
t.) healthy literature and good morals.
There is evidently a reaction against
that beastly style of journalism whose
chief exponents and upholders were
to be found in Chicago, Cincinnati
ami among a certain class of pupere in
New York. The Uucago example lias
lost its ruling spirit, and the Cincin
nati specimen is daily becoming less
profitable. The New York offenders,
like the poor, will alwavs be with us
certainly until New York City is
somewhat purified of its reckless and
godless immorality. Elsewhere, how
ever, the day, in good truth, cannot
much longer be delayed when the
sensational, scandal-loving, prurient
newspaper will be tabooed in every
household and business establishment
in the land.

the best-looking men and the prettiest

I looked around the spacious room I
was tilled with astonishment that so
manv attractive young ladies were

price of cotton and the fact that there
is only one train per day from Mem
phis lias much to do with this singular
state of "fancy free" femininity.
Shortly before 6 "'clock p.m. tho

ICOBRIKPOHDItKCI OP TRI 1PPSAI..I
MoNTttnLLTiKN., April 13. There
has been no conception or creation of
means for tbe development of mind
and morals so nicely planned and suc
cessfully executed as that of the Chau
tauqua Literary and Scientitic Uirvle.
Nor is it possible to eetimate with any
degree of certainty the value.innuenee
and future force of the training se
cured by faithful pursuit of the pre
scribed course. To very many the
place and its methods are very well
known, but there are thousands hun
gering for knowledge, and that of a
kind to place them in the line of the
intelligent thought ol the day, wno
would be glad, through your columns
or otherwise, to know row eas ly,
pleasantly and profitably such an ad
vantage may be secured. The idea of
a university where students could re
ceive diplomas, and yet remain at
home and a1, their regular occupation,
was conceived twenty-five years ago.
Its practical realization begin in 1874,
when the first assembly was held
at Chautauu.ua, N. Y., Lewis Miller
and Dr. Vincent being leaders in tho
movement which has since grown to
such astonishing proportions Less
than ten years ago the inaugural exer
cises, attended by hundreds of enthu
siastic people, hinted only at what to
day is an institution without" a peer.
There has been a constant endeavor
upon tho part of those leading the
measure to secure the greatest good
to the members, and to induce a torn
munion of interest by the introduction
of features calculated to stimulate sen
timent and excite feelings of unity,
good fe lowsbip and helpfulness. To
be able by a directed course of reading
to feel yourself in like pursuit with
24,000 others is stimulating. Each
years' course of reading is complete.
Special courses are arranged for post
graduate study, for which seals are
added to the "diploma. The price of
books, which was considered by many
poo- pepta who of all the world
most need mental riches - an obstacle
to. their joining the circle, has been
la' gely overcome by a monthly pamph
let called the Cliautauquan, which has
the readings interspersed with other
matter, all of which is of the most
desirable character. Systems of loan,
exchange, etc., also aid those who are
not able to buy all the books, and se
cure a corner of the room under the
name of Chautauqua Corner. This
"out-door university," as Joseph Cook
has called it, has had several success
ful branches. In Tennessee the Cir
cle has its summer rallying ground at
Monteagle. With the addition of dis
tinctively Southern features, Mont
eagle was modeled upon the Chau
tauqua plan. The president of the
