The Results Summed t'p.
Press Secretary John Tracey, of the
democratic committee, last night sent out
the following congratulatory telegram
and resume of general election results,
from tbe headquarters of the national
committee of New York:
Dispatches received at the national
democratic committee's headquarters to
night show that Weaver has carried Kan
aaa by over 6,000 and that sis anti-repub-Hcan
congressmen haye been elected in
Wyoming. The Weaver electors are also
successful as to tbe entire state demo
cratic state ticket with the legislature in
doubt, but probably democratic. In
Louisiana the Cleveland majority is oyer
50,000 and there is a solid democratic
congressional delegation. In Colorado
the republicans are defeated by 1,
000 and they have lost both branches
of the legislature. Tbe state of Califor
nia has been carried by 4.000 for tbe
democratic electors. Six out of seven
congressmen are democrats and a demo
cratic legislature majority insures a
democratic senator. Mr. 8beerin, Indi
ana committeeeman and secretary of tbe
democratic national committee baa ad
vices that leave no doubt whatever of a
weeping democratic victory In his state.
Mr. Dicainson, chairman of the
campaign committee, will not leave Now

Historic Ororgia Estates Now CoBTtnted
Into riebclnn Track Farm a.
A map in the advertising columns
tells the story of the wonderful
changes going on in the south. The
Savannah river, from this city for
100 miles westward, has many his
toric plantations, which, from the
days of the colonial government to
the end of the civil war, were noted
for their extent and fertility as well
as for the hospitality of their own
ers. Possibly the best known of
these places near this city was the
Potter plantation, or, more propeily,
plantations, as there were three
places. They were principalities ex
tending from the islands oppotite
the mainland on the southern bank
of the river miles back into the pine
Potter's grove, as a part of the bluff
covered with massive, moss festooned
oaks was known, was as famous as
Bonaventure. In White's Statis'ic,
published nearly fifty years ago, is a
full page illustration of the spot.
These places, as grand as ever in
natural beauty and productivem ss,
are still there, but the old plantation
life and customs are no more. The
deswendante of those who were onoo
lords of the manor now live at Iho
north and feel no interest in the
homes of their ancestors.
The Potter iLace nearest the ci;y,
known as "The Grange," which was
sold several years ago, promises to
become a farming settlement. The
river front is a high bluff coveifd
with majestic trees. A good read
extends from that point through the
center of the plantation to the Agxs
ta road and the Charleston and Sa
vannah railway, a distance of t to
miles. The land on each side is Lad
off in small farms.
Probably there is no spot in the
country so well adapted for truck
gardening. The land is fertile aad
the means of getting produce to
market are unrivaled. Nothing
would be more in keeping with the
progress of the age than that this old
plantation should become the cemer
of a colony of prosperous farmers.
On the river the scenery is beautiful
enough to induce people who are i ot
farmers to invest, so as to have a
quiet country resting place. Savan
Hiding In Ills Own Hair.
Wilhelm Schmidt, living four mi es
south of Conneaut, O., has become
ore of the most remarkable freaks
outside of the museums. He 1 as
been in this country thirty -f cur
years, but is unable and unwilling to
6peak a word of English, living w.th
his wife and daughter on an isolated
little farm that yields corn and o
tatoes enough for the trio. A visitor
from curiosity called on the old mm,
and thus describes what he saw :
What proved to be Schmidt sat in
an armchair in the center of the one
roomed house. Only a huge mound
of hair surmounting his .shoulders
was visible not a human feature to
be seen. Schmidt propped his cane
against his chair, and with bcth
hands pulled this shock of hair open,
showing his face, which was bleact ed
and uncanny looking, like vegetables
grown under cover. Only for a min
ute was the old man s face to be seen,
for he dropped the curtain of h lir
back over it, saying in German that
he did not like the light and could
not endure it.
The great mass of hair fell as
thickly over his face in front as over
the back of his head. Schmidt lias
worn his hair as a hiding place for
his head and face for eighteen years
and steadfastly refuses to have it
cut. His eyesight has been prac
tically destroyed by having the lig ht
shtit from it so long. Cor. Pitts
A Terrible Threat.
Some time ago in a large shipping
town, a big, muscular sailor, rolling
to his lodgings at a late hour, mt.de
night hideous with unearthly shouts
and yells. A diminutive sergeant of
police accosted the offender and de
nounced him in unmeasured terns
for his unruly conduct. The saile rV
only response was to put his arm un
ceremoniously alxiut the sergeai t's
waist and carry him off in silent
The little sergeant kicked and
struggled, but all to no purpose ; he
was held as if in bands of iron. At
Jast, to the intense delight of 1 he
spectators, the outraged officer of
law and order screamed out in rein
fect exasperation :
"If you don't put me down, I'll
take you up !" London Tit-Bits.
Near the last carriage of a tr.iin
about to start a group of stude its
stood embracing each other in ihe
usual demonstrative fashion. The
guard, accustomed to these scenes of
academical leave taking, hesitated to
give the signal, but as the proceed
ings seemed interminable he ran
panting toward that end of the train,
"Gentlemen, it is a minute past
the time. Please get in."

They Said Kltto to Twina,
At one of the largest shipping of
fices in the city, as the majority of
the clerks reside in the most distant
suburbs, a certain amount of grace
is allowed them for arriving in the
morning. They are, however, re
quired to explain on a list specially
provided for the purpose the cause
of their unpunetuality. The first to
make his appearance always leads
off with the words, "Train late,"
"Bus horses down," or as the case
may le, and to this the other clerks
invariably say, "Ditto."
So accustomed have they become
to the formal procedure that they
hardly ever take the trouble to see
what excuse heads the list. The
other morning the first arrival con
scientiously jienciled in the words,
"Wife ill twins," and to the utter
amazement of the chief this extraor
dinary explanation was promptly
"dittoed" all the way down. Xor
was his astonishment diminished
when he discovered the office boy's
name included ! London City Press.
She Knew What to Ask.
A west Washington young lady
who has been married but a few
weeks had her first experience at
"going to market" the other day.
After she had succeeded in making
several laughable blunders, as young
wives are apt to, she approached a
poultry dealer and asked the price of
chickens. Being told by the dealer,
who also handed her a fine pair of
live birds to examine, she quieted
their fluttering as liest she could, and
then, applying her nose to them and
giving them an audible smell, said in
the most innocent manner:
"Are you sure they are fresh,
sir?" Washington Post. .
