champion coon-hunter of the neighborhood,
to thought everybody else except the ob

was more or less a family party there was no
Impropriety in such a frolic The discussion,
which continued for nearly a half-hour, was
carried on by an anxious mother, four young
ladies, three young men and old Zeke before
the large kitchen fireplace, in wliieh bi, oak

mellow light that outlined the figures in
magnified shadows and formed une fantastic
pantomimes on the opposite walls.

Uncle Zeke hsd been a s;leat witness. His
private opinion, chronicled above, had been
expressed to the writer in aa undertone. One
of the young ladies a veritable diplomat
crossed" to where the old man was standing,"
laid her hand on the shoulder of his rusty
coat, and smiling straight into his eyes, said:
"Now, Uncle Zeke, you're not going to de

To exj-ress it classically, this broke the old
man all up. He backed down like a coward.
"I guess it won't do no harm for you to go,"
he said. kBut you and the young men niu.-t
keep together, and don't go anywheres only
where 1 tell you."
The party, now numbering ten, got to
gether, and by half past 8 o'clock had passed
through the read gate and was making for
the woods across the fold. The dogs bounded
over the ground yelping joyously. The col
ored boys hollered and ran helter skelter,
playing leap frog and getting far in advance
of the others. And all the time the ladies ex
claimed: "Oh, my'.'' "Ain't this jolly!" and
showered a perpetual torrent of questions on
"Whert's your gunT they asked.
"We doan't take noguns. There ain't no

Tae whole party met at tho fenco corner.
The ladies were eager with excitement to
press on with the hunt The pine knots
which the party carried were lighted. Three
men were distributed among the party. Due
advice was given to avoid muddy places.
fcv'Jsow, go ahead:" shouted Zeke. Tho
hunters and huntresses move forward. A
Queer torchlight procession it makes, tho
glare of the pine knots giving a lurid hue
to the tall, lealloss trees. The docs bound
forward, barking uneasily, while tho darkle
cry "Hi, there! ' "Go it, now!"
I And on we go. The torch lights our path
way. tke is already In the lead. We fol
low after. In a short time we see the doga
nnder a large gum troe, barking furiously.
The excitement grows intense. Tho noise of
the dogs, the hubbub of the boys and the ex
claruatory furore of the young ludios com
tine into a small-sized pandemonium, which
would scare an ordinary coon to death.

ladies over dare, near de clump of cedars
an keep 'em dare. Don t ye come under the
tree, or ye might git hurt." The ladies were
promptly removed to the reserved portion,
where they have an excellent view of the
operations. The torches indistinctly illumi
nated the tree. On one of tho topmost
boughs was seen a clumpy mass.
!. "Sow, Jake," fctentoriously cried Zeke,
"Climb de tree and shake de critter out I"
Off goes Jake's coat. Ho springs to the tree
as if attacking a monster. Upward he
mount. He reaches tho branches, pulls him
self up and climbs the tree as if it was a bid

"Uncle Zeke," ho says; anl tho old man
asks, "What's the matter ("
"Uncle Zeke, dares two of 'cm."
"Bless do Lawd," fervently exclaims the
"Oh! ah! ugh!" utters a female voice ; "don't

said one, "it looked as big as an ox." But the

were now sung, and general jollity prevailed
while the party threaded its way homewards.

OMEN AS WAGE-W0EKEB&
Effect of Their Competition on
Labor Market of Chicago.
"There are 35,XX) women employed In va
rious occupations in Chicago," said Joe
Greenhut, tenement inspector and labor stat
istician, yesterday, "and their influence is
having a most disastrous effect upon the la
bor market. In almost every case they take
places that would otherwise be filled by men,
nd the effect is a ruinous competition among
"What trades do women chiefly followf
"Making ready-made clothing occupies
1,500 women; cloak-making, 2,500; men's
furnishing goods, 2,500; saleswomen in stores,
M: restaurants and hotels, !l,500; cigarand
tobacco manufacturers, 800; millinery, 1,800;
and almost every occupation has its quota.
These women work for one-half the wages
men would accept, and are rapidly invading
such other fields as book-keeping, stenography
nd telegraphy. V omen work for whatever
they can get, and as they are not capable of
forming trades-unions, they continually cut
each other's throats. Nearly one-half of the
workingwomen of Chicago are out of work to
day, many having been discharged after the
holiday work was done."
"But why can't women get the same wages
Chiefly because they work only to support
themselves, always hope to marry and relieve
themselves of the necessity of working, and
they never form trades-unions. Under these
conditions they have no opportunity or in
centive for organized effort to better their
condition, and the only effect of their pres
ence is to cut down the wages of their male
co workers. When labor-saving machinery
is introduced the male operatives always de
mand that they shall receive, in the form of
increased wages, a share of the enlarged
profits, but the women work on at the same
old price, and the employer reaps all the ben
efit. At present there are more men than
women in Chicago, and consequently the evil
results of female competition with men is not
as clearly seen as it is in some eastern cities,
where the proportion of men to women is
France's Four Political Factions.
Paris Cor. Louisville Courier-Journal
The four different political factions of this
country will be difficult, nay, almost impos
sible, to unite, for each is violent and rooted
in its ideas, and if change does come it will
strain the very heart strings of France, as
her political tempest have done before, leav
ing hor sorely wounded; but with the wonder
ful vitality and recuperation which seems to
tlong to ber more than any power on eartn,
she would soon regain her footing and be the
gay, brilliant nation she has always beeu.
There are the Legitimists, remnants of what
was best in the feudal system, with lofty,
noble minds and a keen sense of "noblesse
oblige," believers in the divine right of the
Bourlion line to reign In France, witn poetic,
graceful chivalry and devotion to the mem
ory of their late King Henry V., a patriot
who refused a crown for fear of involving
his beloved "patrie" in civil war. Truly a

Good traits these to make the foundation for

give you my personal observation.
The Bonapartist faction is more numerous
than I supposed, and there are eveu enemies
of "I'lon Mon" who think him very clover. I
think the manifesto which he published last

A STRANGE DUEL,
Magrudor'a Flgbt Witb a Doctor in a
During tho autumn of IS5.3, in Los Angel as,
Cul., CoL (siuco a distingulsho I general in
the Confederate army, and now deceased) J.
Bankheud Magruder, Third artillery, II. S.
A., who was visiting that city from Sail
Diego, commenced an evenitig nt lbirry
Monroe's restamaiit, in company w ith three
or four oilier congenial fellows, by ordering
a champagne dinner of nn elaborate charac
ter. It was not long after tho initial move
ment of tho real old Duff Gordon sherry from
right to left that an exhilaration s-t in
which was rapidly and radiant'y heightened
to a hilarious pitch, the render
may rest assured; so that, after
the "feast of reason and flow of soul" had got
completely under way, the nocturnal way
farer might have misinterpreted tho medley
of vociferation for sounds of revelry second
only to those attributed to tho beauty and
chivalry of Belgium's capital upon a mo
mentous occasion by the author of "Childo
Harold's Pilgrimage," In other words, an
uproarious contitiversy had quickly follows 1
the gastronomic discussion, during which
Magruder declared, with his characteristic
suavity, that Audrew Jackson was "the
greatest man who ever trod in shoo leather."
Col. John O. Wheeler tossed off a goblet of
Krug "to the greatest of American states
men, Henry Clay;" while Thompson Burrill
quaffed placidly away to the memory of
"Daniel ebster, the greatest man the world
A certain disciple of Esculnpius, who waa
present, then arose, as ostentatiously as it
was possible for him to rise under the circum
stances, and said: "My father, who was sherilt
of Cayuga county (New York), was the great
est of all Americans!" To which Magruder
replied, vehemently: "Doctor, you're a
Vimned fool!" Tho doctor at once challenged
Magruder to fight, which cartel of defiance
was at once accepted, the combat to take
place on the spot, and over the diuing table,
from end to end, distance twelve feet;
weapons derringer pistols. Maj. Horace
Bell, in his exciting book entitled "Remi
niscences of a Ranger," present his readers
with the following description of the duel:
Wilsou Jones, the doctor's second, got tho
word, and tho principals, without shuking
hands, took their respective stations, the ma
jestic form of Magruder towering above that
of the diminutive doctor, who paled and
shuddered when brought face to face with
the grim-visagexl son of Mars.
All was suspense. The word was to be:
Ready! fire I One, two, three! At the word
"l-eady," to the dismay of all, the doctor
blazed away. When the smoke cleared some
what, to the horror of the valliant disciple
of Esculapius, bis antagonist stood as stiff and
defiant as an avengiug demon. The doctor
quailed; Magruder glared savagely on him
for a full minute The spectators, spell
bound, looked on with borriblu foreboding.
Magruder took two "side steps to the right,"
which brought him clear of the end of the
table. He then advanced the "right foot to
the front," with his glaring eyeballs bent
fiercely on the now terrified doctor. He
then brought the left foot up to tho level of
the right heel and leveled his derringer at the
ghastly face of the trembling doctor. Then he
advanced the right f'Xit as before, and in this
way, 'with firm and unrelenting tread, be
slowly advanced on the now thoroughly
frightened doctor, who made a movement
toward the door. The spectators interposed,
and cut off the possibility of retreat in that
direction. The doctor tried to flank the
colonel by skirmishing around the table. Ma
gruder faced to the left, as though moving on
a pivot, and kept tho direful derringer aimed
directly at the doctor s pallid countenance.
Di the excitement the doctor ran under the
table, crawled through, grasped the knees of
the irate hero, and affectionately embracing
them, said: "Col. Magruder, for the love of
G'xl, spare me for my family." The colonel
gave nun a kick auasr.u: "i-i n youj 1 11
spare you for the hangman." And, so saying,
he handed the weapon to his second, and the
festivities were adjourned.
BAILROAD TEAYEL IH AIEICA.
Sketch by Guy de Maupassant of a
July Trip from Algiers to uran.
Translated for N. 0. Times-Democrat
It is one day's journey by rail from Algiers
toOran. First one traverses tbo plain o.
Mitidja fertile, shady, populous. This is
always shown to the stranger in proof of tho
fecundity of our great colonial possession.
Certainly Mitidja and La Kabylie are two
splendid regions. La Kabylie is now more
thickly settled than is tho Fas-de-Calais, ami
Mitidja will ere long be in the same prosper
The train rolls on; the cultivated plains
gradually disappear; the land becomes naked
and red tho veritable African land. The
horizon widens a sterile and burning taori
ton. We follow the immense valley of Cholif,
shut in between desolate, gray and sun
scorchod mountains without one tree, with
out one blade of grass. From place to placo
the mountain-lino lowers and ojiens, as if
only the better to betray the hideous misery
of a soil devoured by tho sun. An
immeasurable level strctehes unbrokeuly
away, the almost invisible line of lofty
ranges lost in vapors. And hero and there
on the barren crests abovo the valley, there
are occasionally to be seen big w hite things
quite round that look like enormous eggs
laid there by giant birds. Those are mara
bouts built for the glory of Allah.
In the harsh yellow plain a clump of trees
is occasionally visible; and one sees mon
rtanding there sunburnt Europeans, very
tall who watch the fleeing train; nnd hard
by a number of little tents, that look like ft
bed of big mushrooms, whence bearded sol
diers come out to look at us. This is an agri
cultural settlement protected by troops of tbo
Then in tho vast stretch of sterile, powdery-looking
land, one sees very far away
so fur away that one can just U-ircly distin
guish it a sort of smoke, a light clou 1 that
appears at once to riso toward tho sky and
nevertheless to rush over tlio ground. It is
only a horseman at full gallop: tho hoofs of
bis steed stir up tho Aim an l burning sand;
and each of those far off moving clouds now
visible indicates tho presence of a rider,
whoso white burnous at lust becomes visible.
We stop at Ornii for dinner.
Oran is a real Eiiroponn city, a commercial
city rather Kpauish than French, nnd not
particularly interesting, One. meets many
handsome girls in Its streets ivory-skinned,
black-eyed, and with admirably white bK;th.
When tho weuther is very clear, it is said you
can sco in the far horizon tho coast-lino of
Bpnln their country.
No sooner have you set foot upon this Afrl
can sou than a strange desire comes upon
you a desire to go farther, much farther,
into tho unknown south.
The heat is intolerable. It is impossible to
lay one's linud upon uny metallic! object,
even inside tho railway car. The wnter in
tho gourds scorches one's mouth when ono
tries to drink; and the air that rushes in
through the window seems liku the breath of
a furnace. At Orteansvillu tho thermometer
in tho railway station marks Howard of
Dluoty degrees in tho slia le.
