We learn that sometime during
Christmas week there will be giveu a
series of Elocutionary Readings and
Recitations by a gentleman who is at
present at the So. West. Bapt. Uu.
at Jackson. His rt-potation as an
elocutionist is a guarautee of some.
thing excellnt. We su'join what
the Memplii Appeal has to say of his
effirts iu that citj: "The literary
and dramatic festival given lust eve
ning by Prof. Fritz, assisted by his
pupils of Holly Springs, was really an
elegant afliir. In lh varied charac
ters sustaiued by Prof. Fritz, he
showed originality of conception and
rendered them with a fervor aud truth
to nature, excelled by few if any ar
tists." The Clarksville Herald says :
"The entertainment by. Prof, Fritz
at the Opera House last night was of
undoubted excellence. " The Professor
is an elocutionist of wonderful power.
He gave a number of selections with
rare expression and keen apprecia
tion of their beauties. Possessed of a
fine voice; a pleasing appearance and
cultivated taste, it is but natural that
he touched the sympathetic chords of
his hearers." Notice will be an
nounced next.week of particulars, by
hand-billg, and tickets will be placed
for sale in stores.
The municipal election passed off
quietly last Saturday, nd disturbance
of any kind occurring. While a full
vote was not polled, yet 272 were
cast, resulting as follows:
For Mayor Rhodes, 132 ; Heath'
cock, 90; Deshong, 44. Rhodes
intijority over Heathcock, 42; ovr
' For Alderman First ward Lov
ing, 35; Blaukiugship, 21 ; Bledsoe
Second ward tiaun, b4. JNt op
Third ward Taylor, 66 ; Clark, 30.
Only two changes are made in tho
old board. Rhodes is elected nittyor,
aud Loving takes the place of BUnk
ingship as alderman in the first ward.
I desire to express my gratification
in finding tlia schools at Milan so well
governed and taught. Prof. Kellogg
is doing solid and thorough work and
the same can be said of his excelleut
assistants. The schools deserve to be
complimented in the highest terms,
and the Denote of Milan are, and
ought tt be, proud cf their success.

A Heartless Mother Leaves her Inno
cent Babe on the Sidewalk and
Skips to Anotktr State.
About four weeks ago, a man who
gave his name as J. H. Clark, of
Brownstown, Ind., came bert, dressed
himself in a gaudy colico coat and be
gan the sale of cheap jewelry and no
tions at a stand on the street. This he
kept up until a few days ago. Ou
the 4th of this month, the city mar
shal of Odin, 111., wrote Marshal Bry
aut, of this city, that a lady got off
in east-bound train there and bought
a ticket aud had her baggage checked
to this place ; that a very young in
fant had been found on the sidewalk,
and it was thought she left it. Mar
shal Bryant and constable Moore, af
ter her arrival here, went to Bee her,
and charged her with the monstrous
crime. She denied it at first, and said
that her child was dead, and she had
written her husbaud to that effect.
When the officers pressed her further,
she confessed, saying that Bhe left it
there, because she wanted to travel
with her husband, and thought the
baby would be in her way. The hus
band also told two or three stories
about the matter, but finally confessed
the truth. Under advice, he went,
under an assumed name, after the in
fant, and brought it here last week.
Since then, the parents, we learn,
lave been trying to give the little in
nocent one away, seeming to have no
conception of their duty to their off
spring. The mother refuses to nurse
it, and fears have been entertained
that she would make way with it un-
awfully. Last Weducslay, the pa
rents, without notice, left on the six
a. m. train for Medina, and parties
who saw them thought they had eitb
cr murdered the child or locked it up
in a trunk, as it could not be seen in
the arms of either of its parents, nor
about the hotel. But this was a false
alarm, as the mother bad it under her
cloak, where it could not be seen, as
was found out on their leturn at noou.
The man is about five feet nine inches
high, rather slender, has light hair,
blue eyes, clean shaved, and is about
twenty-two years old. Sh is of me
dium size, weighs about 125 pouuds,
has dark hair, brown eyes, is about
nineteen years old, and is very pretty.
The babe is about five weeks of age
and vsry small. Our people have
been greatly excited about the matter,
and if the parents had not returner
here with the babe, they would cer
taiuly have been arrested. As it is
mauy think they shauld he dealt with
or sent hack to their home. Alto
gether, is is one of the ugliest affairs
and greatent sensations our people have
experienced in a loug time.

Harper's Magazine for January is
up with the times not only from a lit
erary and artistic point of view, but
politically loo ; and the editor's dar
ing is shown by an essay on "The
Tariff Tor Revenue Ouly,'"writteu
by Henry Watterson. No matter
what one's views on this subject are,
Mr. Watterson's article must be con
sidered valuable as setting forth net
only what his school of political econ
omy thinks and teaches, but what its
eaders hope to accomplish. It is
ritten in the great Kentucky editors

convince, cannot fail to interest the
reader. This is, as is well known,
only the first of two articles which
