Republican Club Tonight.
Indications point to a rousing meet
ing of Republicans at the Court House
at seven o'clock this evening, for the
purpose of organizing a permanent Re
publican club. Every loyal member of
the party is expected and urgently re
quested to show his interest by his at
tendance. The Club is needed in Mari
etta and the stronger it is nuraerially
the greater will be its power for good.
Some of us who yet remain, can re
call the stirring times of 1840, and re
member the effort made at that time
py the old Democratic party to bring
the laboring man in this country to a
level with the most degraded and poor
ly paid in Europe.
Senator Buchanan, who afterwards
was elected President by the Democ
racy, made a speech in the Senate,
from whichjthis is an extract :
"We must bkduck i.ahoh low, and
bring things to their opkcie vai.uk."
And Senator Calhoun also made use of
the following language. "The Tariff
of 1S2S (a protective tariff) has made
all the difficulty. Bring things to the
specie value, and ri'.KE trade, and you
may meet Europe on the same level".
Senator Walker also said "I ardently
desire to see this country in the same
happy condition as the island of Cuba".
And these are the avowed doctrines
and measures of the present Democracy
in their mad theories of free silver and
iree trade. Can it be possible that
honest men and voters can be deceived
into sustaining doctrines so odious and
abhorrent so widely at variance with
all just conceptions of a republican
form of government ?
There are some things absolutely
certain. If 'Wm. McKinley is elected
our President, then a tariff foiprotec
tion and revenue sufficient to pay.from
year to year, the annual expenses of
the government will become a law and
we will not be compelled to increase
the national debt by ibsuing bonds as
the Democracy has done to the amount
of $400,000,000 in the last two years and
wages of all classes will be increased,
prices of all our produce will be higher,
sound money on a proper basis will be
abundant and soon just such a prosper
ous condition as under Harrison's ad
ministration will come again. Free
trade and free silver will keep wool at
ten cents a pound, labor fifty cents a
day and all the farmers products at less
than he ever received before.
If you are fond of pure vexation
And wllllag to curse the nation
You are in just the situation
To go for this silver law.
L. A. W., law
Oh! What i duece of a law.
On a rotten stick your trust Is
You'll find your bubble bust Is
And if you don't get Justice
You'll get enough of this law.

HIS LEG IS PULLED.
The Way a, Southern Congressman Re
gards Ills Lot.
"Soine people may think that a con
gressman saves a pile of money out of
his salary," said a well-known southern
congressman, who was talking to a
Washington Star reporter on the vicis
situdes of running for office, and espe
cially for congress,"butamanhas to be
a small walking, bank to accommodate
the large number of his 'friends' and
supporters who need a little money for
some urgent matter. In my state we

fore the people at meetings. Well, I
have neer attended n meeting that I
did not have some kind of a subscrip
tion poked into my face. Somebody
wants something for a church and for
missionary purposes or for helping
some fellow who has been burned out.
"You can't moid subscribing, and
have to head the list with the largest
sum. Then about the time you think
you are through having your leg pulled
some lazy fellow will walk up and say:
'How do, general? I had ter quit my
ork ter come out and hear you terday,
and I thunk yer moub givo mo a dollar.'
While you have the greatest contempt
for the man, you give him the dollar.
"When you leave the meeting you are
out anywhere from $20 to $50. These
are just a few instances of what a can
didate has to spend money for. After
ho gets through the campaign and is
elected he has to furnish every dead

To Acquire a Taste for Them Is an Ex
Most interesting of ail South Florida
fruits, because little cultivated, almost
unknown outside of the tropics, and
most highly appreciated when once in
troduced, is the alligator or aracado
pear tho aguacate of Cuba, says Har
per's Round Table. A a cry few alligator
pmr trees are grown in sheltered spots
of southern California; but South Flor
ida, below latitude 20 degrees, is the only
section of the United States where it
can be cultivated on a large scale and as
a profitable crop. Here it grows as lux
uriantly and with as little care as the
guava, though it requires a greater
depth of soil. The tree is tall, slender,
and covered withadense foliage of dark
glossy green, while the ripened fruit,
also green in color, is smooth-skinned
and as large as a man's two fists. In
side is a great round stone or seed sur
rounded by a soft, yellowish-green pulp,
which, sprinkled with salt and, eaten
with a spoon, or made, into a salad, is
delicious beyonddescription. Noone ever
eats an alligator pear without wonting
another, and the taste once acquired de
mands to be gratified, regardless of ex
pense. I have known 50 and even 73
ceuls apiece to be paid for these pears,
on-3 when I once asked a Broadway
dealer which was the most expensive
fruit in his store, he promptly an
swered: "Alligator peai?.''
Electricity In Heathen Temples.
The temples of India are to be lighted
'ivith electricity, the example having
been set by the great shrine of Siva, at
Kothicarrie, near Mutwall, in Ceylon,
anl is to be followed by tho equally
vait and ancient foundation of the Na
tukotta, in the same island. In no lougi
tme others will adopt the same im
pTovemcnt.till all the holy places of the
peninsula are so equipped that by press,
J'ag buttons they can be instantly illu
ftiinated, like a modern hotel or theater.
The innovation is enough to make Siva
and Vishnu and even the great Brahma
himself gasp and stare.
Virtue's Crown ot Roses.
The crown of roses .and tho title of
the Rosaric for one year is given an
nually ss a prize for virtue in some of
tho provincial towns of France, notably
in Nnnterre, a little town near Tarls.
The city confers tho crown of roses and
other gifts upon the fair maid who has
been pronounced worthy by the muni
cipality, who have met in solemn con
vocation to consider the merits of all
the maids of the town.
THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE.
Reason Why It Is Iloeoinlns tho Univer
"Everywhere in the United States,"
Father Chlnlquy snys, "tho children of
French Canadians, as soon as they ac
quire the English language at school,
give up the use of Frquch, except to
speak to their mothers. By this proc
ess the French must rapidly disappear.
It is the same here, A little girl came
tome this morning" he was staying in
Montreal "scut by a parent who had
henrd me preach nnd had promised to
como and see me. She spoke to me in
English for some time, and when I said
to her: 'Mnis no pomcz-voua parler
Francais?' she replied: 'O mon Dieu,
cst-ce que je parie Anglak-,1' There is
a reason for this," tho old Frenchman
"1 recently read an article in a maga
zine about 'English the Universal Lan
guage, but the. writer did not know the
true reason. I am in the midst of it,
nnd .1 know. It is because they can ex
press themselves with greater ease in
English than in French."
And M. Chiniquy went on to make the
startling avowal, says the Contempo
rary Bevicw: "When I write -a book,
nnd I hac written many, I write it in
English and then translate it into
French. I find it more easy to do it in
that way. Your expressions are more
direct, your syntax more simple and tho
sounds of your language are more forci
ble. Listen." And springing to his
feet the old man shouted: "Fire!"
"There is some sound," lie added.
"What can we say in French? 'Feu.' It
is lost. You can say 'Heady!' " again
in a sonorous shout. "With us it is
'pret;' there is no sound. 'All aboard!'
with us it is 'embarquex,' but you can
not hear it at ten feet. Yes, sir, tho
English is bound to become the univer
COURTSHIP AND MARRIAGE.
Curious Customs Practiced In Other
Parts of tho World.
Some of the customs peculiar to
courtship and marriage among the race
of dwarfs who inhabit the Andaman
island are, according to M. de Quat
refages, who recently published a book
called "The Pygmies," about these peo
ple, very peculiar. Not the least re
markable of them is the procedure of
courtship. The young man who has
made his choice addresses himself to
the parents, who never refuse, but send
the girl into tho forest, where, before
day, she conceals herself. The young
man must find her.
If he does not succeed he must1 re
nounce all claim to her. The wedding
ceremony of these peoplo is equally
curious. M. Quatrefages thus describes
it: "Tho two parties climb two flex
ible trees growing near each other,
which an old man then makes to bend
toward each other. When the bead of
the man touches that of the girl they
are legally married."' Turning from
Asia to Europe, we find a very curious
custom prevailing in Roumania. Among
the peasantry of this country, when a
girl attains a marriageable age' her
trousseau, which has in the mean
while been carefully woven, spun and
embroidered by her mother and herself,
is placed in a painted wooden, box.
When a young man thinks of asking
to bo allowed to pay his. attentions to
the girl he is at liberty to open the box,
which is always placed in a convenient
position, and examine the trousseau.
If he is satisfied with the quantity and
quality of the dowry ho makes formal
application for the girl's hand, but, if
not, he is quite at liberty to retire.
CLUBS BEGAN IN ATHENS.
Athenians Had the Same Excuses as Men
The birthplace of the earliest club is
a disputed point, but it is well known
that Numa Pompilius, the second king
of Home, who died B. C. 073, founded
trade guilds in Homo during his reign,
similar to the guilds of the craftsmen
which play so important a part inthe
history of tlio middle ages. At one
time there were 80 of these guilds in
ICome alone. Later they spread beyond
tho metropolis, for tho boatmen of tho
Seme at Paris and those of the lower
Ithone formed clubs of their own. Tho
guilds of Home, however, scarcely an
swer to our idea of a club, says tho
Cleveland Recorder. We therefore- turn
with, greater confidence to Athens,
where such a club seems to have orjg
inated. The old Athenian, clubs were
not in all respects similar to those of
modern London and New York, but
there was nevertheless between them a
strong affinity. Aristotle, who flour
ished B. C. 384, tells us that men txthe
same trade and members of a particu
lar tribe were wont to club together for
business purposes. He goes on. to say
that others combined, for the sake of
social intercourse, and adds that "these
meet together for the sake of one an
other's company, and to offer sacri
fices; when they meet they both pay
certain honors to the gods, and ati'the
same time take pleasure and relaxation,
among themselves." This would seem
to point to AthenB as being the birth
place of the earliest club.

Ths demand for clearer and purer
water in towns similar to Marietta is
every day becoming more imperative
and the people generally havo begun
the study of filtering. Ironton is al
ready moving and the Irontonian says:
Supt. Floyd L. llarker and Trustee
J. Wesley Thomas, of the city water
works, have returned from Gallipolis,
where they went to investigate the
filtering system in use at the Gallipolis
water works, with a view of introduc
ing some means of filtering water at
the works here.
While the Ohio river water is at its
worst now, they found that Gallipolis
citizens were being given water as clear
as crystal. This is made possible by
the reservoir and graveU.woll system.
The latter consists of six wells sunk on
an island opposite tho pumping station
and the system of Alteration through
the gravel is so perfect that the water
is purified and made perfectly clear no
natter how muddy the river may be,
Supt. Barker is of the opinion that a
system of filtering which would give
entire satisfaction to Ironton consum
ers could bo put in here for 812,000. It
would be necessary to sink the gravel
wells at a point above or below the city
on the opposite side of theriyerin case
a gravel bottom could not be found at
the water works. Supt Barker also
advanced the opinion that an artificial
gravel bed could bo made at the works.
The location of a reservoir would be
a mattei of some deliberation although
we havo a number of good sites at con
venient distances from the city.
Both the superintendent and trusteo
Thomas express their belief that the
water works could pay for such an im
provement within six years as tho cost
of piping and repairs would be greatly
lessened by the continual use of clear
water. They have decided to giyo our
citizens clear, pure water if there is
any way possible of arriving at that
