As there is a general curiosity to know
the amount of fees paid to tho lawyers in
the Beecher-Tilton case, we give them as
we find them set down in a Northern
exchange, viz: Mr. Evarts received S25,
000; Mr. Tracy, $10,000; Mr. Hill, S5.000;
Mr. Beach, $5,000; Fullerton, $2,500; Mr.
Morris, $2,500. and Mr. Pryor, $2,500.
Mr. Shearman refused to accept money
for his services.
Feathers are shooting out all over the
toilettes, the fashion gossips say. Fea?
ther fans, feather parasolB and feather
hats are all the go. Feather trimmings
are now arranged with so much lightness
and beauty, that they are considered as
suitable for summer as winter wear.
They are mounted as fringe as well as
bands, though as bands they are used
for the trimming of bonnets and parasols.
Fines are fines-in the Grand Duchy oj
Posen. Ono was imposed on the news?
paper Kuryer 1'oznanski, whereupon the
editor opened a subscription to oppose
to the penalty a popular demonstration.
All the subscription money was confis?
cated and an additional fine of -150 marks
was imposed by this attempf to avoid the
proper operation of the penalty.
It looks as if somebody is starting a
newspaper every day. Tho fact that
hundreds of men who have worked in a
journalist's harness all their lives would
go out and commit suicide if it were not
for the demnition uncertainty of such a
course, doesn't seem to have the slightest
effect on beginners.

of the United States is engaged in agri?
cultural pursuits, a number one-half
