The following is taken from the Ba- fr
on Rouge Capitollan Advocate of the it
26th inst., and is significant in itself.
The race for Congress In this district
will undoubtedly be an exciting one P
and thesuccessful candidate will have r(
to run lively to get there first: tC
"We take pleasure in acknowledg
Ing the call, yesterday, of Judge John
Young, of Clalborne. The Judge has i
entered the contest for the Congress
tonal nomination in the Fifth District,
and will break a lance with General
King when the time comes. Hle is
conscious of the fact tthat Gen. King
and himself will not be allowed to
fight it out themselves. There is any
quantity of Congressional timber in i
that fortunate district. Judge Young
will doubtless be a formidable compet.
Itor in the race."
A mysterious attraction at an ice
cream festival In a Methodists church
at Alleghany city; Pa., was termed
the "humanilphone," and an extra
charge was made for admission to the
lace of performance. On entering
e room the heads and shoulders of
e young ladies were visible above
secreen extending the whole lengh of
l4oom. They all wore masks and
m their necks hung suspended a g
cord on which was printed a musical
note: It was played by a young lady.
With a wand she walked back and t,
forth and each young lady uttered a n
different note as she touched them. In tI
this novel manner were played ,"Homi r b
Sweet Home," "Yankee Doodle" and e
NATCHEZ' OFFER DECLINED.
The citizens' committee agreed that I
Natchez would give the Fort Scott, a
Hot Springs and Natchez, Railroad t'
$200,000 In 5 per cent thirty year a
behds, payable when the road is built 0
from the Arkansas line to Natchez, or a
$800,000 if the road will establish their r
general machine shops here. This was t
not axcepted, but it is as much as t
Natchez can or will give. Natchez is on V
an air line from Fort Scott to New Or
Isans, and this route would be by far
the cheapest to build. Natckez 1 Dannr. i

The Greenville, Miss., Times of the b
26th inst., gives the following inftr- io
mation regarding the compress now
building there: "The entire building
will be 400 feet front by 210 feet deep. c;
The storage part will be divided ci
into eight comparments, with fire 0o
proof brick walls between each, with a
a capacity of 1500 bales. Thus a total of 8
12,000 bales can by close packing be in
creased 25 per cent. The foundation
for the press to rest on is 8 feet deep C
and comprises 30,000 brick."

Certain Prohibitionists in Iowa C
seems to have adopted the motto of l
our esteemed cotemporary, the Toledo y
Blade, and are making strenuous eof- cl
forts to pulverize the rum power. At S
Clinton, in that State, on Monday,
four "saloonists" were shot in a fight
by Prohibitionists. This is a very I
agressive policy, but the still unpul ti
verized saloonists threaten to hang the -

with their guns.-N. Y. S . ol
