To the charge that Capt. Thomas has
but once iu his w hole career in Congress,
voted for a Mississippi River appropriation
bill while on its passage, Baton's Free
Prtss remarks that The Bulletin, two
years ago, "bent its entire energies to
elect CV.pt. Thomas," and then Barton lays
back iu his easy chair with the sweet con
sciousness tiiat he has utterly annihihted
the allegation and demoralized the allega
tor. But to our simple mind the fact that
Capt. Thomas has voted but once for the
Mississippi River appropriation bill when
on its passtge, during ull his three terms in
Congn ss, would reniaia even if The Bul
letin had, as Barton charges, "bent all its
efforts two y. ars ago to secure his election."
But The Bulletin did not do two years
ago what Button says it did. It did not
try to secure Thomas' election it did all it
could to defeat him at the polls, and we
challenge Barton to produce a siuirle sen
tence from The Bulletin's files proving
what be says. The Bulletin did favor
Capt. Thomas' nomination over Judge
Damrou, and Birton luu mistaken its
efforts to secure the Captain's nomination
for tflorts to secure his diction, w hich is
not at all fair. T'hic Bulletin favored
Capt. Thomas' nomination over Judge
Dainron, two jears ago, not because it be
lieved him to be the weakest man political
ly, but because it believed him to bo very
much superior, for the pe iplo of the dis
trict, to his leading opponent in his own
party. We assure Rarton that The Bulle
tin wis actuated by tho noblest motives in
its' efforts to secure Capt. Thomas' nomina
tion in 1S82, over C. N. Damron, viz., o
desire tJ have tho man nominated by the
Republicans, who, in case ho were elected
in spite of our honorable efforts to defeat
him, would be bet'er ablo than any of his
contestants for the nomination, to serve tho
people of this district. Barton owes us an
apology and we have entered it up against

A West Virginia young man who be
lieves iu self-improvomeut, having re
cently married, suggested to his wifo
that they should arguo somo questions
frankly and (ully every morning, la
order to lenrn more- of each other. Tho
lirst question happened to bo "Wheth
er a woman could bo expected to get
along without a hat," and ho took tbo
alurmativo. Ilo learned several new
things beforo tho argument closed.
I.ovid r.y tho Cats.
"Then) is a curious sight," said a
lady, pointing out of the parlor window
of her houso in Morrisania ono day last
week; "but it Is a common cnonju one
iu this neighborhood."
Tho Now York Sun reporter lookod
and saw a fish peddler llirting with a
servant girl across tho road. He was
evidently a prosperous peddler and tho
servant girl seemed to appreciate tho
fact. But it was neither tho peddler
nor tho girl who constituted tho curi
ous sight nil tided to. Tho wagon, with
the thoughtful bot so botwecu the shafts
stood in the middle of tho road. A tar
paulin covered tho fish, and at three
points, about equi-distant, three cats'
tails wore visible abovo tho cloth, and
tho vibratory motion of oach indicato
that tho object at the other end was
"It is a most extraordinary thing,"
said tho Morrisauia lady, "but each
lisli peddler is followed by his own par
ticular cats. They seem to know tho
sound of bis horn, nnd trot out of thoir
houses as soon as ho blows it. Each
wagon has usually about thrco cats fol
lowing it. I don t think any affection
for tho peddler iiilluences thoir selec
tion, or if it does, there is no reciproci
ty of the sentiment, for, whilo tho cat
may love tho peddler, the peddler in
variably hates the cat. 1 am inclinod
to think that tho attraction lies in tho
quality of the fish. I fancy that her
ring is tho favorite lish of a cat. Cats
are also fond of shad, but they disliko
tho bones. That wagon has shad in it.
Before three weeks havo gono by tho
cats will look with contempt upon shad
and follow the mackerel wagon3. I
sen there is a fourth tail sticking up
abovo tho tarpaulin."
Then? was, and tho poddler saw it,
too. Ilo put a rapid end to his court
ship, nnd, softly stepping toward his
wagon, seized a tail aud dragged out a
cat with a shad in its mouth. Tho cat
was made tho recipient of a bard kick
