The Satisfaction.In Traveling Alone.
"Oh, the pleasure of eating alone!"
wrote Charles Lamb in one of his most
expansive letters. We are not quite sure
how serious he was in the exclamation.
But change "eating" into "traveling,"
and there may be found thousands who
will echo the cry. Thackeray thought
there was nothing to equal it. Louis
Stevenson, in the Cevennes, made the
same discovery, for his donkey cannot
be said to count.

live in touring times, was too accom

mental kind) not to harp on this music

that we pay in all our actions to the
judgment of others as the poison of our

When Children Smoked.
Jorevin de Rochefort, who published
in Paris in 1671 an account of his trav
els in England, tells the following:
"While we were walking about the.
town (Worcester) he asked me if it was
the custom in France as in England
that when the children went to school
they carried in their satchel with their
books a pipe of tobacco, which their
mothers took care to fill early in the
morning. it serving. them Instead of
breakfast, and that at the accustomed
hour every one laid aside his book to
light his pipe, the master smoking with
them and teaching them how to hold
their pipes and draw in the tobacco."
In England at the time of the great
plague it was reported that no one liv
ing in a tobacconist's house fell sick of
the disease. This caused a great de
mand for tobacco. Hearne says in his
diary, "I remember that I heard .for
merly Tom Rogers, who was yeoman
beadle, say that when he was a school
boy at Eton that year when the plague
raged all the boys of that school were
obliged to smoke every morning and
that he was never whipped so much in
his life as he was one morning for not

-Pecuftarities of Footpath.
Footpaths are what roads are not,
natural productions, just as the paths
made by hares, deer and elephants are.
No one really makes a footpath-that
Is, no one improves it. What Is true of
central Africa is true of England.
"The native paths," wrote Professor
prummond, "are the same in character
all over Africa. Like the roads of the
old Romans, they run straight on
through everything-ridge and moun
tain and valley-never shying- at ob
stacles nor anywhere turning aside to
breathe. Yet" within this general
straightfortardness there . is a singu
lar eccentricity and Indirectness in de

Is, on the whole, a bee line, no fifty
yards of it are ever straight. And the
reason is not far to seek.

The right arm is always a little lar

man uses his right arm to lift a weight

kicks with his left foot, while the
lounger stands on his left leg and lets
his right fail easily, because he has

Size of the Cottor Crop.
The present low price of cot
ton is attributed to various caus
es, most notable among which
are a slack demand for cotton
goods and a growing belief that
the crop is going to prove one
of the largest on record. The
slack demar.d proposition is so
obvious as to leave no ground
for questiona; but what basis
there is for the large crop :dea,
beyond the off-hand estimates
of Neill and others, has not yet
Messrs. Latham, Alexander &
Co., of Ne w York, who are
among the most level headed
authorities in the cotton trade,
do not have a great deal of confi
dence in the big crop idea.
They reason from such facts as
necessarly apply to the case,
and in a circular letter dated
November 9, give the following
plausible analysis of the situa
"The total amount of cotton
in sight from September 1, to
November 1, this year, was 2,
841,613 bales compared with the
same period of 1900, it is 191,939
bales less; 20.722 bales less than
in 1899; 406,878 bales less than
in 189.8, and 120,723 bales less
than in 1897.
"If the movement to Novem
ber 1st should only be 26.44 per
cent of the total crop this year,
as it was in 1897-98, and which
was the smallest ever known to
November 1st, the -crop this year
would figure out 10,747,401 bales.
on the other hand, should it
prove to be 30 per cent. of the
total crop, as it was in 1896-97,
which was the most rapid move
ment, the crop would prove to
be 7,893,329. If the movement
thus far should prove to be an
average of the past ten years,
which was 30.1-2 per cent. the
crop would figure out 9,435,302
for this year.
"In 1898-99 the total crop was
11,274,840 bales, the largest ever
grown. The :novement to No
vember 1st this year was 406,878
bales less than it was that year.
If the crop is lo be as large this
year as in 1898-99, the enormous
receipts of that year will not
have to be equal from now to the
end of the season, but increased
"1878-99 the movement of the
crop to November 1st was 311,
230 bales greater than this year.
Still, the crop yielded only 8,
"The total crop of cotton this
year cannot well be approxi
mated by a comparison. of the
movement to November 1st with
any particular previous year;
but an average of receipts to
November 1st for the last ten
years should represent in some
degree the probable out-turn of
"The crop was marketed rap
idly during October, on account
of favorable conditions for piclk
ingjanid shipping,. and because.
ctn was required for export
to fill contracts for October and
November deliveries and ship
ments, and to in.crease depleted
stocks of spinners.
"On October :3rd,~ the govern
ment's estimation of the condi
ion of the crop was 61.04, next
to the lowest estimate ever re
orded. This estimate has since
been confirmed by the subse
:uent reports of commissioners

ton States-some of them of re

through means of circular tele
grams reaching nearly all the
otton growing counties, also
onfirm the prospective short
yield of cotton.
"It is hardly probable that a
long and disastrous drought in
Iexas and the -Southwestern
States should contribute to in
rease the crop, or that a noto
riosly unfavorable rainy season
in the Carolinas, Florida and
parts of Georgia has contributed
to the yield. Neither is it prob
ble that the favorable weather
f the latter part of October
ould to any considerable extent
vercome the injury previously
ustained during the greater
part of the growing season, es
pecially when in man~y sections
our correspondents report that
the crop had already been large
y gathered and marketed.
"In view of the foregoing, it
does not seem possible that this
is to prove the largest cotton crop
"In our opinion it would be
mpossible to procure from trust
worthy sources of the cotton
rowing counties of the south
nformation that would warrant
the belief that this year's crop
would prove as large as last
year's. It may turn out for less.

The Purchase of Louisiana.
The beginning of Jefferson's
first term found this countiy
threatened by the dangers ana
i comoications of an inte-nation I
struggle across the water. N, -
poleon was engaged with plans
hostile to England. France had'
obtained from Spain a secret i
cession to what was known as
the Louisiana Territory. The
British government was covetous
of American territory and was
interested in limiting the expan-!
sion of the United States to the'
westward. The United States
government had become serious
ly concerned over the question
of commercial outlet to the Gulf.
Spanish officials at New Orleans
were imposing restrictions which
materially hampered the coi
merce of the Valley and which
were the occasion of bad feeling.
Marbois was Napoleon's Min
ister of the Public Treasury.
Napoleon needed money for his
war budget. But of stronger
infiuence with him was a policy
which might cripple England.
Under such conditions, Presi
dent Jefferson opened, through
Mr. Livingstone, the American
Misister to France, negotiations
for the purchase of so much ter
ritory as would control the
mouth of the Mississippi. The
inspiration for this diplomacy
was the increasing clamor of the
people in the great Valley
against the interference with
American eommerce on the riv
er. To aid Mr. Livingstone,
Mr. Monroe, afterwards Presi
dent, was sent as a special Am
Napoleon met the negotiations
with a counter proposition. Ac
cording to Marbois, who became
the historian of the transaction,
Napoleon said, in a conversation
on the 10th of April, 1803, speak
ing of the proposed cession,
with special reference to the de
sire of the British: " They shall
not have the Mississippi, which
Twenty days later the treaty
had been consummated, and the
great Territory of Lousiana had
been ceded to the United States
for $12.000,000 and the assump
tion of certain claims amount
ing to about $3,000,000 more.
It was in commenting upon
the accomplishment of the pur
chase that Napoleon remarked:
" This accession of territory
strengthens forever the power
of the United States."
The secret treaty of St. Ilde
fonso, by which the territory
passed to France from Spain,
was made in 1800. It was known
to the govenment of the United
States, 'but the actual transfer
from Spanish to French authori
ty had not taken place. The
trouble from which American
commerce suffered was with the
Spanish officials at New Orleans.
President Jefferson, however,
knew that the solution of the
difficulty must come through
negotiations with France.
It is an interesting fact that in
1802, there sailed out of the
Mississippi 158 Ameircan yes
'sels, of 21,883 tonnage. This
was the American commerce en
dangered. It was the arbitrary
order issued on the 16 of Octo
ber, 1802, by the Intendant
Morales, "suspending the right
of deposit" at the Port of New
Orleans, which created the out
burst of indignation along the
Mississippi, which prompted
President Jefferson to enter up
on the negotiations for the pur
chase of the territory.
According to Marbois, Napole
on realized in some degree the
magnificent territory which he
was transferring to the United
States. He realized, however,
that it was impossible for him to
hold the territory without send
ing a fleet and a strong force.
He understood, also, that this
transfer of Louisiana territory
to the United States would be
~the strongest blow he could deal
Napoleon met the offer of the
United States to purchase the
mouth of the river with this
answer to his Minister Marbois:
"Irresolution and deliberation
are no longer in season. I re
nounce Louisiana. It is not New
Orleans only I will cede; it is the
whole colony, iwithout any re
servation. I know the price of
what I abandon. I renounce it
with the greatest regret. To at
tempt to retain it would be fol
The Treaty of the purchase
was signed on April 30, 1803.
The transfer at New Orleans
took place a few months later.

Why are They Talking?
Some of the newspapers which
have very little political power
seem to be scared nearly to death
at the mere mentior. of the name
of McLaurin. They try to ridi
cule the idea that McLaurin has
a strong and growing following,
but still they manifest the great
est fear of the result of the
election next year.
The opposition may ponder
1. Vindictive 'expressions and
malicious misr a pr es ent ations
gain nothing for the cause in
whose behalf they are uttered.
2. McLaurin has the vantage
ground. In his writings he is
fair, logical, analytical, convinc

are not made that way. They
seem to be endowed with a sur

4. McLaurin appeals to the
sense and to the reason of swn

5. Tiliuma, and his lieuten
ants, appeal to the prejudice and
jealousy of the less fortunate
and the less informed citizens.
6. The people are tiring of
the methods by which Tillman
gained ascendency. They have
had enough of it, and when
Tillman undertakes to control
the people next year. they may
not be willing.
7. The more McLaurin ap

becomes. He has made very

A Tussle With English.
The pitfalls of the English tongue to
a foreigner are many. A Frenchwom
an who has undertaken housekeeping
in New York thought she had a good,
working knowledge of the language,
but soon discovered her mistake.
One day she called a carpenter and
planned with him to have some work
done about the house in the way of
putting up shelves, etc., and she went
over the ground with him as carefully
as possible to get from him an estimate
of what it would cost.
After the work was done the bill sub
mitted was considerably In excess of
the sum first named. The Frenchwom
an endeavored to remonstrate, but only
succeeded in making the following re
markable statement to him:

we were Brst engaged." -New York
The world's almond crop, exclusive
of those raised in California and the
west, comes from Italy, Sicily, Ma
jorca, Spain, France, Portugal, Mo
rocco and Algiers. The highly prized
Jordan almonds come from Malaga,
Spain, and not from the Jordan river,
as many people suppose. The common
almond is the most indigestible of all
the nuts and contains very little nour
ishment. There are mnany ways, liow
ever, in which it is advantageously
used as a desert or as a flavoring.
One peculiarity about the almond tree
is that its leaves contain prussic acid
and are therefore poisonous, while the
fruit may be eaten with impunity.
A Sure Thing Sport..
A well known politician on setting
out for a day's sport with a friend
pointed to a large spaniel which lay
apparently asleep in the hall and bet
his friend a guinea he could not at
tract the dog's attention.
The bet was readily accepted, and
after the failure of a shrill whistle and
a blank cartridge to cause the slightest
movement the guinea was delivered
"That's my old dog Mahatma I had
stuffed a few weeks ago," laughed the
politician, "and that's the tenth guinea
he's brought me."-London Tit-Bits.
Italian bees are more hardy than the
native and more profitable. They are
more energetic and will gather honey'
in partial droughts when natives will
do nothing. They will gather honey
from blossoms that natives will not
touch. They are stronger on the wing,

are not so irritable.

'In the first place, you must remember
that the Amanita phalloides, or deadly
