A MONSTROUS LIE BUT INTESTING
One of the correspondents of the Chicago
Record tells of a most remarkable
woman that a traveler found in Europe.
Said he. She waf a light mulatto, born
in North Carolina, I think, of slave parents,
and Mr. Smith, who pretended to
be her husband, was the son of her
former master. She had two heads and
four legs, but only two arms and one
body. She could talk several languages,
wa3 reasonably educated, and both heads
had a distinct and a separate consciousness.
Qne could carry on a conversation
in English, while the other would be
talking in French on a different subject,
and the Belgian lawyer I sat and
conversed with the double woman iu
that way. Oiie of the faces was quite
pretty; the other was plain. One of
them had a very cheerful, sanguine
was morose,' jealdns
and discontented, and it was a curious
fact that one half of the body of this pe
culiar creature was jealous of the atten
tion received by the other half. Ono
could have the headache without affect
ing the other, but aside from the brains
there was onlyNme set of vital organs

PREACHER KILLS CATS HNJCHURUH.
Rev. W. Laufman, pastor of the Methodist
Episcopal church here, is c inducting
a series of meetings against the
popular vices. The pulpit was banked
in with packages of chewing tobacco and
monster plugs Holding aloft the pound
plug of a popular brand, the pastor declared
that bv actual computation il contained
3S0 grains of nicotine, enough to
deal death to 180 men.
Tragically, he said, waving aloft a big
plug of tobacco: 'The Spain ot today
is not the Spain of Columbus, because of
the ever prevalent use of the deidl
cigarette to both men and women. Turkey,
the sick nation of Europe, has been
brought low because of its national v ice
the tobacco habit. France is confronted
with a naturally decreasing population
and lack of vita! force, alone brought
about by the use of tobacco."
Then he called Dr. E. C. Miller to the
pulpit. A large cat was brought fiom
its cage and while an attendant held it
bv the nape of the neck the doctor dropped
three drops of nicotine on threat's
tongue. The spectators were excited by
the strange scene, but in ninety seconds
that cat was dead. Then he brousht
out a still larger cat and administered
two drops of nicotine, the purpose being
to illustrate the sickness and spasms the
first use of tobacco brings. A second
dose of two drops was administered and
in a minute and three quarters the cat
was no more.
The Rev. Laufman announces tl at on
next Sunday he will illustrate his sermon
on tne pernicious use of alcohol by kill
ing some more cats and exhibit i g the
digestive apparatus of a deceased drunkard.

The Sound Money Democratic Committee
of Jessamine county lias issued a
call for a mass convention to be held in
Nicholaeville, March loth, for the purpose
of nominating candidates for County
Judj;e and Representative The action
of the Committee was quite a surprise to
the Siher Democrats, as they had hopes
of getting the sound money Democrats
in line and were unprepared for the 6tep
that was taken. It is the impression,
now, that the only way a union of the
two factions can be effected is for the
siher Democrats to endorse the nominees,
of the sound money wing, for the
judge and Representative and demand
in return the endoisement of theirown
candidates for the other offices. It is
possible that a deal of that character can
be arranged, and thestwo factions may
Tet work in unison.
We do not believe any Democrat, silver,
gold, high tariff, or low tariff, doubts
for au instant that quarreling in the
Democratic party should cease and a
settlement of all differences should be
efiected. The question that is worn ing
every onejs Low can a reconciliation be
brought about? There ought to be
some wa out of the tronble and we
would suggest that the managers of each
side give the matter serious consideration
and try to detise some plan that
will lead to the desired end. If both
sides are willing to unite the obstacles
that prevent a union should be removed
If cither side, however, is opposed, or w
indifferent, to an adjustment of the differences
that have caused a division, then
the probabilities are that each faction
will pursue its own course, and that
means, in mauv portions of the State at
leatt, the sacufue of the Democratic
party in local contests, and, judging by
the experience last fall, in contests for
State and National offices as well. The
necessity for a union of the conflicting
elements, therefore, is apparent, and it
is to be hoppd that some way will be
touml to cross the chasm and bring the
The wail of the harmony howler is

inaccurately erroneous, because in the
svllogism it fails to consider the verte
bratal action of the synoial fluid which,
percoating the trocantor major, ener
vateb the protoplasmic cell, and operates
on the gray matter, compelling thought.
The verj statement of this suggestion
carries with it axiomatic proof.
In fact 6ome plants do not think and
some do, no matter how many ego, (as
the C--J. classically puts it) they may
pack around with them. For example
the plant of that Louisville Aldermanic
contract didn't think. It merely made
other people think; neither has the
plant of Governor Bradlev's ambition
ever taken thought to itself. It has
merely operated to compel the thought
on the part of Godfrey Hunter that the
uuLonifortableness ot being dead does
not alwavs carry with it consciousness of
the fact. But on the other hand the
plant of Buslinell and Forakerdid think.
It thought the elements of Republican
party respectability would be considered
iu the selection of a successor to John
Sherman and that Hanna would have
several things the matter with her before
attaining admission to the Millionaires
Club The thoueht of the plant
w?s, however, of few days and no account
for the Buslinell end has thrown
up the sponge and given its promissory
note to appoint Mark. It is apparent,
therefore, that the absolute au unadulterated
possession of a large and health
ego generally goes with plants some
times thinking and sometimes otherwise.
But, in any event, the C -J. is 'way off
TO VOTE BY MACHINERY.
Voting machines are destined, in a
great measure, to supercede political
'machines'1 in the near future, a fact
lor which the public should accord full
measure of applause to the inventor.
Two of the most successful trials of these
machines vvere made in the recent election
one at Rochester, N. Y., and the
other at Worcliester, Mass- Both demonstrated
be ond question their vast
superiority over any method of registering
the will of the people in national
a flairs. In the one place the entire city
vote W28 reported at police headquarters
within forty five minutes after the closing
of the polls. In both instances it
was fairly piovcn that the machine made
figures which would not lie. and the
ofliciils were very enthusiastic in their
expressed belief that the system was far
iu advance of the present Australian

John R. McLean's
Without a single exception, there
is beyond doubt no greater or more
popular newspaper in the United
Spates than the Cincinnati Enquirer;
or a more successful publisher than
its proprietor, Mr. John R. McLean.
Ihe old-time prices fcr the Daily
Enquirer have been maintained, and
its circulation largely increased each
year; hard times and cheaper journals
failing to arrest its onward march
and high appreciation of the public
for its true worth and merit.
The Weekly Enquirer at beginning
of the campaign year vrzs offered at
50 cents a year, and its circulation
increased by the addition of over
2os,ooo new subscribers ; the most
substantial and coveted testimonial a
publisher could desire.
When asked for the secret of such
success, Mr. McLean frankly answers:
The Enquirer has no opinions to foruc
upon its patrons, it simply prints the
facts and tells the truth that the reader
may form his own opinions. By
maintaining the price of the paper,
more news and greater variety can be
furnished, and every class of business
interests catered to, which a cheapet
journal cannot afford.
The very liberal support given the
Enquirer by the public at large, makes
it incumbent upon the management
to serve it faithfully with zeal and enterprise
in minor matters as well as
thoss of greater magnitude.
