From the way New York bus been
handling the Kemmler case it would
seem to a man up a tree as if it would be
a far better thing for the State, if it would
sentence its criminals in the first place to
die of old age.
Gkokuk VandkkiiilT docs not show the
fears of his brother-in-law liditor Shep
ard. On the contrary, he is going down
into the bowels of the Confederacy, and
is fitting up an ,$8,000,000 summer es
tate near Asheville, N. C I'crliups he
will invite Editor Shcpurd .'own there to
get acquainted with the people. Atlanta
London is speculating heavily in shares
of the Kentucky and Tennessee Land
companies, in some cases, say tnc uis-
patches, shares huve gone up from 250
to 300 icr cent, premium. Foreign capi
tal is ltccoming interested iu America,
and whatever else it means it cannot
help but develop some of the finest coun
try iu the world.
Harvard won the largest numlier ol
prizes at the contest nt Ilerkclv Oval,
New York, and not satisfied with their
victory the boys must needs make a
night of it and ended it up by painting
the statue of John Harvard a deep red.
The statue is probably spoiled. There is
still some material for the fool killer in
this broud land of the free.
"Tin-: beautiful women of the world"
are requested, in a circular, to send their
photographs to the Iluroness Klara von
dcr Decklcr at Tillis. These will all be
examined by a committee of artists and
those selected will be put in an album
with the title "Types of Female Beauty
of the Last Years of the Nineteenth Cen
tury." Then the album will be sent to
the Moscow Museum.
Willi. B Christian bodies in America arc
doing their best to convert the heathen,
the latter are also preparing and sending
out missiounrics to this country to con
vert the Americans. Commissioner Fred-
crick dc Lntour Booth-Tucker, of Hin
dostan, Chief of the Lust Indies and Cey
lon Department of the Salvation Army,
came over a few days ago. He has been
assigned to work in New Jersey.
An English syndicate has just closed
the sule for ten breweries iu San Fran
cisco. The price paid was f,.iuu,uuu.
A year ago several of the largest brewer
ies of Detroit were purchased by an ling
lish syndicate. At the time they were
making money but when they passed
into tiie hands of the Britishers the sales
dropjied off and instead ol a dividend at
the end of the year an assessment was
made. The reason assigned was that
the people would not buy beer made by
foreigners. This, however, docs not
seem to deter the monied men of Eng
land as the recent sale shows.
In Asheville the census enumerators do
not have so bud a time ol it because in
this healthy locality there are few chronic
diseases and icople don't mind saying
no. But in New York where diseases of
all nationalities and colors arc met at
every band, the census enumerators has
no snap uud many of the l.oou who
started out so boldly on Mondnv morn
ing lust would now like to exchange
their job for a more congenial if a less
remunerati e one. New York paiers say
that complaints arc pouring in on every
hand and that the life of the enumerator
is by no means a happy one.
