WWs "BSstbt).?&onW days ago
a colored preacher Visited tho Har
deb brotners, confined in Charles?
ton jail, under sentence of death for
murder of Statcn Lanier. While]
administering spiritual consolation
the preacher -said: "How happy
you should be, to know the very
day on which yon will meet the
Lord?how much better than I,
who do not know where I will go
when I die." These words of cheer
were addressed more particularly
to the two brothers, whose sentence
had on that day been commuted to
imprisonment, ! of'Which fact, it
seems, the preacher was not in?
formed. The broth era, who had
been-made awaro of their good
fortune, answered the preacher by
.saying: "Wee's excused, and are
no' better off,. as far as meeting do
Lord is concerned, .dan you/' (the
preacher;) > The' divine looked
somewhat puzzled, but realized the
true state of' affairs when George
Hardee, the brother who is to be
hung, said: "I'm do ono?I'm to
meet de Lord on next Friday.",

sioh that he slapped the boy's ears,
' was sent to jail for five days.
A Detroit doctor informs the
Ff&'Pt^tyaX; smoking is injurious
simply because "it interferes with,
molecular change coincident with
the* development of the tissues, and
makes the blood corpuscles, oval
and irregular at the edge." This is
precisely what we have told smokers
a thosand times or more; but
strange as it may seem, it has re?
duced the, importation, of cigars
scarcely twenty per cent.
The silverware for the great
Palace Hotel at San Francisco cost
$60,000, and among its features is
quite a' novelty, in the shape of sil?
ver caddies, with four comportments
for as many different kinds of tea,
which will be set before the guest
at the table, with scalding water at
hand, that they may help them?
selves to the leaf and moke their
tea after the Chinese fashion.
Georgia papers boast of "the
