AT.ABtm,
Mostconehv, Ala.. Nov. 7. The election was
,nlet throughout tbe State as far as heard,
lit jet' majority In this city will be 1,681. The
few boxes heard from indicate a large Democratic
majority in the State. It is safe to say seven
Democratic Congressmen are elected.
MontLr, Not. 7. The Indications are that
Brombcrg, Democrat, has carried this coanty by
l.F41 majority. Tilden and Hendricks' majority
will equal, if It does not exceed, Bromberg'a.
Everything Is quiet.
Mostoomirt, Nor. 7. The returns show
-Democratic majorities from all directions, indi
cating at least 25.0.0 majority in the State. Seven
Democratic Congressmen arc certainly elected.
In the Fourth district Haralson, the present col.
ored member, is opposed by Hapier. ex-colored
member, who Is supported bj Senator Spencer
ana the Federal omoe-holders. Shelley, Demo-eratfls-making
gains, but not enough is knowa to
warrant in estimate.
CAUFOBKTA.
SasFraxchco. Nov. 7. The election in this
tlty and State was very quiet- A heavy vote was
cast. Forty-two thousand ballots were polled in
this city. Tbe result here cannot be known be
fore morning. Both parties claim the city, but
the defeat of Piper, Dem., for Congress in this
district Is conceded. Partial returns from the
interior show Kepublican gains almost every
where. There Is no question that Page, Rep.,
will be elected in the Second districts. Toe
Third and Fourth districts are more doubtful,
and the result cannot safely be predicted. From
present advices at tbe Republican State Central
Committee room tbe feeling is strong that they
hate carried the State bv a fair majority, and
the preaadJapalcbe seem to indioate that tact.
The returns from tbe large towns are coming In
very slowly. There Is nothing from Oregon or
Nevada, exeept Democratic gains reported in
Virginia City.

CUBA'S HUHEICANE.
Tbe Devastating Flood That Followed.
Havana, Not, 7. The accounts which have
been.recelred from the Interior show that the
mals source of tbe recent floods was the Laguna
Del Tesoro, wh,Ica Is situated on the north side of
Zapata swamp. Thenooasras la a straight line
north through the eentro of Colon coanty, seeking
to unite with the swamps of BIbana, os tbe north
coast. The overflow, swelled by the rivers Pal
miliar, JSas Aston, Guayabo and others, ran
through the following, counties: Roque, Saba
nilla, Recero, San- Anton, Camilla, Guasajaybo
and PalmiUas. At a plantation called Fermlna,
where the main trunk of the railroad has a tun
nel, eight feet of water remained on tbe ground
five days after the hurricane. The low-lylng
lands were overrun to the height of the house
tops, and on the plantations only the chimneys
were to be seen above the water.
The Inundation covers as area or about fortv
miles. The following plantations suffered the.
most severely: x ernuna, x eroer, airmonia, va
rambola, Duenar, and Rita. From fifteen to
twenty others were totally rained. Over fifty
smaller farms were also destroyed. The exact
cause of the flood is unknown, but It is supposed
to have been occasioned by tbe heavy rains. Some
people believe that springs came oat of the earth.
In some sections the damage done by tho Good
was much heavier than that dost by tho hurri
cane. Exact estimates cannot yet be made, but
it is supposed the sugar crop has suffered by both
calamities. From sitees to twenty per cent, of
the crop will nevertheless be about as large as
last year's, because It promised to be exception
ally large. Tbe tobacco crop will bo retarded,
because the seedling! were destroyed, but they
can be replaced In most cuts

English Demand for American Wheat.
There are many Indications In England or the
probability of a large demand there this winter
for American wheat- A writer in tho London
Tfmes says that last year the British wheat crop
was 22 per cent, below an average, while this
year It Is 11 per cent, below. Tbe amount this
year available for consumption, after deducting
the wheat necessary to,be retained for seed, is
stated at about, 72,000,000 bushels, tbe average
yield per acre being 25 bushels this year. The
requirements or the population for the year are
estimated at 184,000,009 bushels. Therefore Hi,
000,001 bushels must be lmjiorted, an amount
about equal to tbe imports or foreign .wheat into
England daring the past year.
in tbe wheat trade tho fact Is demonstrated In
England th at wheatean be Import ed cheaper than
it can be grown. Each year there Is a diminution
In the acreage sown. Thus the increased yield
fier acre this year compared with last year is en
Irely offset by the rednced surface planted in
wheat, which is but 3,114,556 acres. England sow
looks to the United States as her chief source of
supply for, foreign wheat, of which baa Francisco
sends her probably the greatest amount of any
single port.
If we are able to grow breadstons aad provi
sions for England, and supply ber more cheaply
than she can do It at home, it gives us a vantage
ground. held by -no other nation. What we do
ior her we are doing for France, Germany and
other-European countries, and so long as we can
keep out of foreign quarrels, and also keep the
peace at borne, this trade is sure to greatly bene
lit us. --
The Careful Man.
Soon after noon yesterday a stranger entered a
Woodward avenue hardware store and asked If
tbey kept shingle nails there. Ilejng Informed
that they had a doieu kegs on hand, he further
inquired, 'Are they genuine shingle nails or only
imitations?" "They are sblngle-nalls, of course."
"Let mo see them." A handful was placed on
the coaster before him, and he took several nails
to the door, where he conld get a stronger light.
After scanning them thoroughly he tested two or
three between his teeth, tried to bend them be.
tween his fingers, and said: "Well, they seem to
be all right, and I'll take five pounds. Idon't

shlngle-nalls along here somewhere about a
month ago, carried them home, and what do you
suppose they turned out to bet" "Six penays"
answered the clerk. "No, sir; they were shoe
pegs, sir." "That was strange," mned the
clerk. "And another time when 1 ordered shingle
Balls," continued the stranger, "the elerk put up
four store-handles, three nutmeg graters and a

into my soul, and TOO mustn't blame me ror seem

"Orcenrse." 'iShlngle nails;" ."Yes. sir."
"Just write it on this card and" give me your

Express railway stock has a much shorter term
of use than that reserved for slower traffic. The
law Is universal that Intensity and duration of ac

no matter ot surprise to find that the human ner
