A copy of the New Orleans Era, of
date April, 12th, 1864, was shown the
writer by Mr. Bosamond Lorio a few
days ago. The paper was in good
condition, and is a valuable relic of
the troublous times that existed at
the time it was printed. Noone would
suppose by reading in it the news of
the opera, social events and business
affairs that Ibis country was then in
the throes of a bloody stite.

Mr. Chambers opened his Iloture

Hurrah for the King!
Everybody is guessing who will be
the King of our carnival. Only one
person, besides the King himself,
knows, anI you might just as well ask
the Sphinx for enlightenment as to ask
that party. He wouldn't tell you if
he was going to be hung. Some of
our wise citizens are sure that tIbey
know who the King is, and the writer
saw one the other day who offered to
back his judgemet by betting tlhe
magnicenut sum of fteen cents. But
he didn't know anay more about it than
any one else, and we believe that his
bet was a big '"bluff'.

Last Thursday night a euchre party
was given by some of the young geun
tlemen of our city complimentary to
tle visiting teachers. The Tuxedo
club kindly tendered the use of their
club room where the euchre was held.
The inclemency of the weather on
that night prevented a large number
from standing, but those who went
had a fee time. Some pretty prisme
were awarded to the winners. When
the score counted up the games won,
it was found that a pretty school
teacher was eBeaed (Miss Jaui) so,
of course, she received the first prize.
Miss Nellie Price won the consolation
prize. (We wont say that she Nellie
got the first prize, for we doot approve
of puunin, especially when there are
so many teachers present). The boo
by prize fell to the lot of Miss Laura
Badeaus. Wasn't that bad? Oh
well, we cant all get rrt pries. The
first, consolation and booby pries for
the gentlemen were woe by 8onddy

A vegetable diet is very healthy,
and the following culled from the
Phdadelphia Press, will be interesting
in offering suggestions for children's
diet. Must children are allowed to
eat too much meast and too few vege.
tables. Health depends on a wea
and continuous variety. This list of
tonic vegetables is worth keeping:
"A diel of nothing but celery is
said by some physicians to be a sure
cure for both rheumatism and neurali
gin. Free use of this vegetable is al
ways recommended to rheumatic
"Baked potatoes are digested more
easily than boiled potato, and should,
therefore, be preferred by dyspep
"In cases of anemia, cabbages and
spinach are distinctly beneocial.
spinach is also aluost as valuable as
ithis weter in its effect on the kid
.Beets and tornips keep the blood
pure and improve the appetite.
"Tomatoes are thought in India to
be a revenutive of cholera. Like en
dives and watercrees they stimulate
the healthy aiC'tion of the liveI.
"Just after the battle pf Fort Don
elson Gsa. Grant is said to have tales
graphed to Waahington that he would
not permit the army tomove till forty
wagon loads of onions that had been
prsnmied him should arrive. Onions
are essmetial to the army moss to
make pork or beef palatable. But
they are alo an admirable curs for
