1 , MANNERS OF THE ARISTOCRACY.
Bearing of the High English?Indifferent
and Sometimes Insolent to Others.
The high English almost always possess
complete ease of manner, but almost
never complete elegance, and both pecul
iarities are attributable to their rank. As
a rule, they are remarkable for repose or
? bearing. There is little pushing when
the aristocrats are by themselves, though
plenty of it among those who wish to
associate with them. To the aristocrats
their rights are conceded without a con
test. This naturally makes them calm,
But it also makes them indifferent, and
sometimes insolent, toward the rest of
the world. If they are well bred, so
much the better; but if not, they stand
quite as secure. The pedestal is just as
high, no matter what figure is placed on
it. A duke a be a boor or a clown, a
duchess may be illiterate or drunken or
immoral, and there have been instances
of all this within the last twenty years,
but thep are dukes and duchesses all the
same. Their precedence is not disturbed,
then* notice is still an honor, their society
is courted, their alliance is sought, if not
by all, yet by so many that they never
discover the deficiency.
I once heard a count ess account for the
mannerof one of the court ladie?, which
was indeed exceptionally soft and charm
ing: "I suppose," She said, "it proceeds
from her being always with a superior,
always obliged to defer to another."
This is the key to the feeling of the
aristocracy. They have no need, they
think, to defer, with equals or inferiors,
They can gratify their moods or their
whims, be amiable, or disagreeable, or
indifferent, as they please. Toward
those above them they are deferential in
the extreme; servile it seems to an
American, and certrinly obsequious. With
those whom they like they can be affable
as any people in the world, and their
affability is the more agreeable because
what is not common is always more
highly prized. Like everybody else, they
can be civil enough when it is their
interest to be so. But when none of these
reasons exists?interest, or preference,
or necessity?they are often cold, super
cilious and arrogant to a degree unknown
in what is called good company else
where.?St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
Peculiaritlot of Japanese Art.
In its integrity the art of Japan is hon
est wholesome, characterized by a child
like fondness for color and oddity of
form, decorative in the highest degree,
yet without strain or affectation. A
Japanese artist knows little about per
spective, but he knows foreground na
ture so well that even his convention
alized objects arc not too far removed
from their model for recognition. His
vines have spring and coil; his flowers
have bloom and freshness; his fish and
birds and quadrupeds have motion; his
clouds fly and his rivers roll. Technical
facility, together with power of adap
tation, selection and conventionalization
are possessed by him in a remarkable de
gree; indeed, no European artist or dec
orators have the readiness of invention
and application that these Orientals
The Japanese who paints for a few
pence a day will dash upon a fan or
umbrella a bit of color, a hint of land
scape maybe, or a swinging bough of
cherry blossoms, and the work will
occupy him two minutes. When he has
finished he has painted something that
fits his object better than the minute
and labored work of a Fronch idealis or
English follower of patterns. This
facility is in large measure hereditary;
for tae half civilized people, as our
school geographies used to call the.u,
were civilized in the arts when
Europeans north of the Alps had not got
into the habit of wearing shirts.?
Deaths Among Kich and Poor.
For twenty-three years I have been
watching the peculiarities of my busi
ness, and I can say this: The rich are
more liable to die in winter, during some
cold snaps, and the poor in summer,
when the excessive heats are prevalent.
I don't know how to account for it ex
cept that, perhaps, the rich suffer most
because of exposure to the cold after
coining from their warm houses, and the
poor lie in the very hot weather because
of the exhaustion resulting from the
necessity of following their arduous oc
cupations when other people can rest in
the shade.?J. Kelly, Undertaker.
A Bastian Cure tor Catarrh.
A writer in The Russkaia Meditz says
that he has had great success in the cure
of over 800 cases of acute and chronic
catarrh, or cold in the head, by the use
of iocold water. The legs from the
knee downward are washed with it in
the morning and at night and rubbed
vigorously with a coarse towel. It is
neceosaiy to do this for two days only,
and many patients are said to have been
cured in one day.?Chicago Tribune.

THE MAY FRESHET.
The Bad Plight of the Kailroads from
Washouts and Lost Trestles.
?QTthe Colombia and Greenville Road
the situation Is worse. The down tram
yesterday ran to Dyson's, the usoal
meeting place, and came back, while
the up tram failed to reach Alston, a
distance of about forty miles separating
the two. The down train was stopped
by the washing away of the Saluda
River trestle and the rnoviug of the
bridge between Dyson's and Chapel's.
The up train was halted the other side
of the Broad River because it was lound
that the Thousand Foot trestle there had
several of its benches washed away, and
was therefore, unsafe. No transfer of
passenger or mails could be made. The
people who started to Columbia or other
Doiuts below Dyson's had to come back
or go around by the Greenwood and
Augusta road if they could. Those
who started up the road also had to go
back where they came from.
?The Broadway trestle on the Blue
Ridge branch, half way between Belton
and Anderson, went down on Wednes
day before the up passenger train got to
it." Passengers had, therefore, to return
to Belton and the only way to reach
Walhalla or Anderson was to come here
and take chances for catching a train to
Seneca and there take the worse chance
of catching a freight on the Blue Ridge
road. No transfer arrangements could
be made as boats are scarce on Broad
way. About 100 feet of the trestle was
down aud-six of its benches were washed
out. Auderson is worse oil'than Green
ville, for mails and passengers from
Augusta can get here, while Anderson
has" no connections anywhere. It is
hoped that the Columbia and Greeu
v?le and branches will be ruuning trains
some way by Saturday, but it is said to
be vain to expect mails from the low
country before then.
Spartanburg is cut oil* too, not only
on the Air Line but on the Spartanburg,
Union and Columbia, the trestle at
Sheltou, between Spartanburg and
Union, bein<r down. Where the trains
on that road are cannot be learned. It
is further reported that a trestle on the

The Israelites of the New Covenant who
Confess that Jesus is the Messiah.
Under the leadership of a preacher
named Rabinowitz, a Jewish" Christian
movement has been in progress for
some time in Bessarabia, which is de
veloping toward an organic form. These
Christians have adopted a 1'Symbol ol
the Congregation of the Isrealites of
the New Covenant," from which, as
printed in The Independent, we extract
the following significant passages:
"2. I believe with an unwavering
faith that our Father in Heaven, in ac
cordance with His promise given to our
father, our prophets and our King David,
the son of Jessie, has awakened tor
Iereal a Redeemer?namely, Jesus, who
was born of Mary the virgin, m the city
of Bethlehem, of Judea, who su?ered,
was crucified, died, and was buried for
our salvation; who arose again from the
dead and lives, and behold He is sitting
at the right. hand of our Father in
Heaven, and will come from there to.
judge the circuit of the earth, the living
and the dead, and He is king over the
House of Jacob forever, and His king
dom knows no end.
"3. I believe with an unwavering
faith that, according to the determina
tion of God to pass judgement, and His
foreknowledge, our fathers were strick
en with hardness of heart, that they
blasphemously resisted their Messiah,
the Lord Jesus, in order to arouse the
other nations of the earth to .all the
greater zeal, and to reconcile them all
through their faith in Christ, according
to the words of Ills evangelist, in order
that the earth should be full of the
knowledge of the Lord, aud that the
Lord should be king over the whole
?v-l. I believe with an unwavering
faith that only through faith in Jesus,
the Messiah, any man can be justified,
without the works of the law, and that
there is one (Jod, who, through faith,
justifies the circumcised Jew and the
uncircumciscd Gentiles, and that there
is no difference, between Jews aud
Greeks, servants and freemen, men and
women; they are all one in Christ."
Arsenic Cookies for Her Husband.
Neillsville, Wis., May 18.?
Farmer Henry Wright died suddenly a
few days ago. The symptoms were
those of arsenical poisoning. Now his
wife admits that she poisoned him.
Daniel Allen, a wealthy farmer living
j near the Wrights, whose wife is an inva
lid, Mrs. Wright alleges, seduced her
aud told her to poison her husband aud
he would poison his wife, and aller a
suitable time they would be married.
Some time ago Allen went to Milwaukee,
Mrs. Wright says, and procured the
arsenic. About two weeks before the
husband died she made some cookies,
in two of which she put the arsenic, and
her husband ate them. In five minutes
he was taken very sick and vomited the
cookies up. He asked his wife to make
him a dose of peppermint to settle his
stomach. Allen was present and told
her she had given him too large a dose
and she ought to put a little in the pep
permint. She refused. She alleges
that Allen then gave her husband little
doses, which in time killed him. Allen
was arrested. He denies the story.

MASQUERADE COSTUMES FOR HIRE.
I As Uncanny Scene In a Loft?Habit* and
MmHi?People Who Hire Costumes.
It was a. strange sight which the re
e>rter encountered the other day in a
rge loft, up .three flights of stairs, in
j one of our tall business structures. Be
fore the eye became accustomed to the
semi-darkness which prevailed in the
wide space it looked as if hundreds of
people had committed suicide by hang
ing there. Long racks ran from one wall
to the other, and suspended from ?tout
pegs hung what appeared as limp human
figures. The windows on both front and
rear of the loft were open, and, as the
chill air coursed through the large room,
the limp figures swayed to and fro with
a mysterious noise which sounded like
j suppressed whispers from another world.
The aged lady who had conducted the
scribe up-stairs had left him alone mo
mentarily to fetch a match for the pur
pose of lighting the gas, and in the un
certain light of the room the swaying
shapes looked indeed like dangling
corpses. ?Occasionally there would be a
faint glitter among the silent crowd as^if
some gold or silver ornament had been
struck by a ray of light, and then all
would be indistinct again. Or some
ghastly face, with large, lifeless eyes
would be turned to the light which came
I sparsely through the small openings in
[ the closed blinds, revealing the most
hideous features imaginable.
The old lady came slowly up-stairs,
coughing fitfully as she ascended, and
after she had lighted the gas jets the
scene changed as if by magic. Then the
limp figures were seen to be so many
bright costumes of all ages and all im
aginable styles. There was the bright
armor of a knight of old hanging peace
fully next to that of a Turk. Scores of
habits of Italians and Spanish capitanos
were mixed with the quaint costumes of
Chinese and Japanese grandees, and in
numerable habiliments of the historic
Pulcinella, Scaramuccia, Arlechino, Brig
hella, Tartaglia, Dr. Graziano and the
Venetian merchant were seen suspended
from the pegs. Below each costume
were the boots, shoes, slippers, Bandals or
j other "ohassure" pertaining to the char
[ acter, and on top of the peg were the
turbans, felt hats, helmets or other head
gear appropriate to the outfit, while each
costume had attached to it a mask. There
were frightfully distorted features,
bearded masks, idiotic faces, half-masks,
masks of paper, wax tarlatan, silk and
almost any conceivable texture. There
were the costumes of clowns of all sizts
in plain material, and the velvet and
satin costumes of Spanish grandees,
rich!/ ornamented with gold and silver
passementerie?and there was a collec
tion of all kinds of arms?the ancient
halberd, the mediasval arquebuse and the
elegant rapier of the renaissance.
The great majority forming the middle
and poorer classes makes up the best
paying custom for the C03tumer, who
has a sliding scale of prices for his
"characters." A queen of the night or a
countess of the middle ages is the
preference of Bridget, of the basement
i kitchen. She would not present any
other character at the masquerade ball,
and she willingly pays from $3 to $5 for
I the use of the costume. Salesladies of a
j romantic turn of mind and blameless
anatomy swear by the betwitching cos
tume of the mediasval page with a
wonderful wig of "impertinent" blonde
hair. Shop girls who have spent some
of their few leisure hours in devouring
dime novels affect the gypsy maids and
shepherdesses, which can be had at from
50 cents to $1 per night.
The sterner sex manifests the most
paradoxical preferences. One would
think, for instance, that a barber would
delight in representing the lather-pro
ducing Figaro, as Mozart and Rossini
have 60 wonderfully depicted, but with
him it must be a full-fledged knight in
armor bright, and. the Ingers olli an
"winged word" at the helmet. Pale
faced clerks, who go home in batches
after dark because they are afraid of
sand-baggers, ma'ie excellent Italian
banditti, with formidable sugar-loaf hats
and lean calves, and the hard-worked
journeyman must make a count in silk
attire, at least, should the robes of royalty
in the costumer's stock have given out.?
Cure for JPilcs.
Piles are frequently preceeded by a
sense of weight in the back, loins and
lower part of the abdomen, causing the
patient to suppose he has some affec
tion of the kidneys or neighboring or
gans. At times, symptoms of indiges
tion are present, flatulency, uneasiness
of the stomach, etc. A moisture like
perspiration, producing a very dis
agreeable itching, after "getting warm,
is a common attendant. Blind, Bleed
ing and itching Piles yield at once to
the application of Dr. Bosanko s Pile
Remedy, which acts directly upon the
parts affected, absorbing the Tumors,
allaying the intense itching, and effect
ing a permanent cure. Price 50 cents.

THE FUNERAL OF THE POOR.
The Peculiarly Xtnpreulre Burial Cere
monies of Xexloo?At a " Fan da."
You see two or three kinds of f unerals
hero. -The firsfc-olass is grand, and is all
conducted from first to last with many
carriages. The second-class is the kind I
attempted to see by the street car route.
The third-class is the kind I now en
countered?the funeral of the poor. The
coffins of these are red or blue, as a rule,
and have many figures or marks; much
like the signs and figures found on the
cases containing mummies. The wood
of these coffins is very thin and light.
For wood is costly, and the poor here are
so pitifully poor.

on up a watered avenue of splendid eu

the graves, seemed to select one to please
them, came back, ordered the little bare
legged Indian to pack up, and in less
than a rninute, busy as a lot of ants, they
let down the red coffin into the neat
white grave. And they then hastily
covered it over; while a priest came from
a little chapel close by, book and candle
in hand, sprinkling some dust, saying a
few words softly, and then back to his
hermitage; while the barefooted men and
the little barelegged Indian?in fact
they were all Indians, all barefooted, and
the poorest of the poor?went back down
the avonue of tombs, flowers and splen
did trees ?lowly and silently.
It was then that the impressive part
of the ceremony took place. A little
crowd of women had come hovering in
the distance after these men. They now
came closer and hovered around the
grave. They cried some and moaned
and mooned, all the time placing flowers
on the grave. And when they had done
there was one more billow of red in the
cemetery of Dolores.
I knew not why, but this little group
of weeping women all the time kept re
minding me of Mary and her friends
when they came to the tomb of our
savior. They had brought their flowers
in an extra little blue coffin, watch they
carried back to the city with them. A
little stick was set up at the head, with
a small piece of pewter or zinc about the
size of your palm, with the name and
date and age. That was all?a little 2
cent tombstone. And there are miles
and miles of these here. You can see
by the holes in them that some of them
have been tacked up many times by
tender hands after the former sticks have
Over some of the graves of the poor
here you see little houses covered with
long cypress moss. These little houses
are nearly always full of flowers. On
onc>?fu.ve I saw a pair of little baby
shoes. And this moved me greatly.

but partly because it is a little like the
feeling of the Indians of the western

Once outside the somber shadows of

They had their own provisions, however,
and while I ate a broiled chioken, fried

their simple meal at the other end of the
little table; two other red and figured

great heap of the smallest of fishes, much
smaller than "whitebait" of the Thames.
Another woman with her sharp finger
nails tore up some onions and spread
them over the cakes, along with a few
small fishes. Another of the women had
some sort of weeds for salad. I think
it may have been radish tops. Finally,
when the tortillas, or thin com cakes,
were all warmed and smeared over and

MURDER IN FAIRFIELD.
A White Man Assassinated by a Xogro
Wlto Makes His Escape.
WlKKSBOBO, S. C, May 22.?
Information has just been received here
of a willful and deliberate murder which
was committed at Dawkin's, a small
station on the Spartanburg Railroad, in
this County, on last Thursday. Eli
Free, a white man, was stabbed through
the heart by Jim Johnson, colored.
The victim died in a few minutes and
in the excitement of the moment the
murderer was premitted to escape.
The deed was without any provoca
tion at the time. Free was talkinig
with a lew friends, and had*intimation
that the negro was about to make an
attack on him. The murder is the out
come of a former difficulty. In an alter
cation last November Johnson was shot
by Free and severely wounded. For
this the latter was indicted, tried and
acquitted here at the last term of Court.
The murderer is still at large. He is a
mulatto, ginger cake color, about five
feet ten inches tall, weighs about -one
hundred and sixty pounds, walks rather
stiff and slowly, lias a few whiskers on
the side of his face and a small lump or
mark on the right eye, speaks rather
deliberately, and seems to have a slight
impediment in his voice.?Columbia

Atlanta, Ga., May 21.?The strong
personal tone that has been given to
the joint discussions between Gen. Gor
don' and Major Racon, the rival candi
dates for the Governorship, in their tour
through the Stale, has aroused partisan
feeling everywhere as it has not been
aroused for a Ion?; time. Every com
munity is divided into factions on tch
question whether Major Bacon did right
iu quitting the army in 1803. So great
is the tension on public feeling that
Patrick Walsh, on behalf of Major
Bacon, and E. P. Horwcll, for Gen.
Gordon, have decided that the jofnt
discussions shall cease with the engage
ment for to-morrow. It is remarked
that the propositon to abandon the
prearranged programme came from
Major Bacon's friends. Xow that each
of the candidates can make separate
dales for speaking, free from the pres
ence of his adversary, it is feared that
the personal references of each to the
other will grow more pointed.
