Tolstoi say marriage is tin. Let thii

ice a tremendous boom in the matrimo
nial market. Boston Transcript.
The rapidity with which Georgia
towns are passing ordinances prohibit
ing women from entering saloons would
lead a stranger to believe that it was a
very common practice in the sister State
for females to frequent the places.
T II K charming weather which is being
enjoyed in the North was told in the dis
patches of yesterday. Three days ago
the people of Mount Washington could
not bear the heat. - On the ninth it began
to grow cold and yesterday it snowed
Asheville is the place to be during the
Tub Force bill is declared by its nu
tbors to be a measure that will insure
pure elections. Its authors voted down
an amendment making it applicable to
the North as well as the South. Hence,
it follows that Reed, Quay and Lodge do
not want pure elections at the North,
Boodle must have full sway to muster
its blocks of five in the sections of perfect
righteousness. Louisville Times.
Chicago is rejoicing over the fact that
for the past two days the temperature
has been cooler, the thermometer stand'
ing no higher than 89V4. Another cause
for rejoicing was because there were no
more than fifteen prostrations from the
heat and only four or five deaths. Chica
go's attention is respectfully called to
Asheville where thi thermometer quits
rising when it gets in the seventies and
where there is never a prostration from
Soitii Carolina is not the only state
where the farmers' alliance is making it
self felt. Down in Madison county, Geor
gia, they are strong enough so that there
has been an opposition organized. The
latter have petitioned Congressman Carl
ton of Athens to be a candidate for re
nomination on a platform in which op
position to the sub-treasury bill is the
most important feature. Congressman
Carlton has replied that he will not be a
candidate, but his friends think he will
accept if the honor is forced upon him.
Meanwhile the members of the alliance
are setting back sharpening their knives
and promising all manner of warm times
as soon as the campaign opens. Georgia
farmers are going into the political field
Things are not always what they
An Indian of the Catawba tribe
near Rock Hill has been doing the West
ern States with a patent medicine com-
panv who advertised him as a member
of the Apache band of warriors. No
doubt he cut a big figure in the West and
on the strength of the advertising he re
ceived was regarded with considerable
a we and given much his own way. Now
be has returned and the first thing he did
was to get full and try to do the town.
That's the way he did in the West and
nobody thought anything about it. Rut
in North Carolina he was known and
when the police pulled him there probably
was not a more surprised Indian on the
globe. He bad got to accustomed to
having his own way be could not under
stand that the lawsof a civilid country
applied to him.
Whatbvb may bs the party tics one
cannot help but admire the courage of
Chauncey M. Depew. He has been men
tioned as a possible candidate to head
the republican ticket in the next cam
paign and the paramount objection to
him is that he is a railroad man. In the
face of this he comes out with an article
in the last North American Review enti
tled "Railway Mca in Politics," and in
which he says:
The violent prejudices against rail
way companies and their manage
ment, many of which had good founda
tions in the beginning, no longer exist.
Governmental and State regulations, and
a radical change in the relations between
the railway companies and the public,
have led to kindlier feelings and a better
understanding. Theexccedingly rich and
varied vocabulary of opprobrious epi
thets as against railway men has fallen
into inocuous desuetude. Railway at
torneys find that juries arc treating them
the same as any other litigants; and in
legislatures and before railway commis
sions the companies have fair hearing,
and the merits of the cnae are generally
impartially acted upon. Railway men
in politics arc gradually becoming no
different from people engaged In any
1 da not believe there are two States In
tlx union totlay where a railway man
running for office would be cut by any
considerable number of the members of
his party on account of his business.
As to railroad men becoming candidates
for ofiice.as soon as they know that they
arc not fighting against a boycott which
imposes a stiuma upon their patriotism
and sense of duty to the public In official
positions, few of thrm will be found will'
ing to take office until they are prepared
to quit business. All railway men are
politicians, and iictlve ones. Their con
stnnt contact with the public, and the
habit of being actively interested in
everything about them, make then such.
Hut the railway is a most exacting mus
ter, and it would be very dilbcult for one
ol Its olhcer or employes to Hold a posi
tion nvolving his time and attention to
any extent, and still continue In the rail
In writing the above penew bokth In
vite the criticism that is sure to be
brought out, especially because of his
probable candidacy. It is beyond ques
