A newspaper has been started by
two educated colored women in the
Congo Free state.
Mr. Carlisle's son is to be his
right hand man in the treasury - de
partment, relieving his father of
the routine of his official duties. Mr.
Carlisle will devote considerable of
his time to prepare the administra
programme upon the tariff question,
and there is but little doubt that one
of the most thorough revisions of
tariff will be proposed, ever brought
before the country.
A bill has been introduced at
Springfield by Senator C. Porter
Johnson, of Chicago, which threatens
the life of every fraternal insurance
organization in the state. It is
clearly in the interest oi the old line
companies, is intended as a death
blow to beneficent societies which
have been growing in favor and pop
ularity at a remarkable rate in late
years. The bill ought to be de
feated. A Washington dispatch says that
the World's fair commissioners owe
the $900,000 they got last Saturday
morning entirely to the strong man
in the White house. But for Mr.
Cleveland's prompt and decided ac
tion the appropriation would have
failed. At 9 o'clock Friday night
President Palmer and Secretary
Dickinson and other commissioners
had given it up. They believed the
appropriation would not be put
through, and word was sent to Mr.
Cleveland. Very late in the night
he sent a message by a trusty repre
sentative to Mr. Holman and oiher
other democrat ic leaders. He told
them that congress had created the
commission and must sustain it; that
the honor of the country was at
stake. He was for the appropriation.

How to Pronounce "Hawaii."
How do you pronounce the name
of the island kingdom which wants to
be annexed to the United States?" is
a question frequently pronounced
and variously answered nowadays.
The most commonly accepted pro
nunciation, and the one authorized
by Lippincott's Worcester's, Web
ster's and the Century's dictionaries,
is, for the name of the principal isl
and of the group, 'Ilah-wi-e,"' the
second syllable accented, and the "I"
pronounced as in "pine." The same
question was once asked of a high
cast Hawaiian lady, well educated in
her own ami the English language.
She answered: "The proper pronun
ciation is Haii-vah-e-e. There is no
w' in our alphabet, and no letter or
combination of letters which take the
ound of -w,' as in English. The
missionaries who lirst translated our
language found it difficult to pro
nounce or express the sound,
which is, to i:uy ear, correctly
conveyed by the letter 'v,' softened
and made" full. Our 'a' is pro
nounced broad, as you pronounce it
in 'fall.' and our 'i1 is like the Eng
lish e.' The rule is to pronounce
every vowel, and as the exception to
' the rule does not affect the double 'i'
in Hawaii, you will see that the word
is 'Hah-vali-ee.'1 " These are the
twelve letters in the Hawaiian lan
guagewith their pronunciation: A
(ah), e(a); i (e), o (!i), o (;, h (hay),
k (kay). 1 (lah). r.i (moo), n (noo)l p
(pay)l v (vay). There is no sound of
'i"asinthe English language, ex
cept wherp "aP follows ," or as
the Hawaiian lady would insist, "v."
There is a great difference in the
language as spoken by the high and
low caste of Hawaiian. The low
caste spenk with a succession of ex
plosive, staccato gutturals, the high
east with a liquid flow, that makes it
a beautiful language. The insistance
upon the "v" instead of. the w"
sound is considered, even by some of
the well educated and all of the un
educated, as something of an affec
tation, and one hears 'Haii-vah-e-e11
on the island inxtead "Hab-wah-e,"
about as often as "valise", instead of
vase" in American society.

A COUPLE CF NARROW ESCAPES
Capt. Eugene Hay' Lively Experiences
Ilurlngr tho Lite irnpleainntoeia.
"A man is tot safe from bullets anv
where." Capt. Eugene May remarked
the other day to a lot of old comrades
in tho hearing: of a revr Orleans J'iines
Democrat writer. "I have reason U
appreciate the truth of this observa
tiou when I reflect upon the experi
ence I had at Jackson, Miss., once dur
ing the war. Bullets were flTin
around pretty lively, but we felt pret
ty saie, as we were beuiml a high ern
baukment which extended some dist
ance above our heads. Well, there
wasn't anythirg to do just then, sol
stretched out beneath a caisson with
my head just behind a wheel.
"The last thing in the world seemed
the coming of bullet into the shade
of that caisson But while I was lying
there taking it easy 1 suddenly heard
a sharp 'sping' just behind my -head.
It was unmistakably the noise of a
bullet hitting something. Well, I
turned over and looked at the wheel
and, by Georgy there was a bullet im
bedded in the lire of the wheel just
about an inch from where my head
had been. If that tire had been a
fraction less wile I'd have got the bul
let in the head. I wasn't sleepy after
that, I can tell you, and I moved away
from there alnost as quickly as I got
from behind th i bole of that tree at

queried some o le.
"Well," replied Cant. Mav. "it's a
long story and had almost forsotten
it till 1 was reminded of it the other
day by old Jim Dabney. The way the
thing happened was this: Our section

ment wim tne enemy. Our ammuni

we halted at a s iot in the woods to
rest and to replenish our ammunition.
lhe liubtitiir was sroin? on all
around us and stray bullets were com
ing along past us every now and then.
I don't believe I was ever so tired in
my life as I was after that engage
ment. It was a isolutely necessary for
me to take a rest, and oerceivin? a
huge tree near ly I concluded to plant
myself alongside of it. So I leaned
against it,with my back to the enemy's
line, stretched oat my feet, and was
having a splendid rest, when a twelve
pound shot came bounding &I0112 and
struck the tree t lump on the opposite
side from me at x point just behind my

to see the whole enormous mass of
