Ua'm a l'oltit In the I'liU-aso Collectorahip
A Washington dispatch says:
Mr. Cable lias scoroa another vic
tory in the Chicago internal revenue
collectorship fight and Mr. Durborow
looks aisconsoiate. ijaDie mtenuea
to leave the city on Wednesday
night; he said so himself, and added
that he had completed his light in
behalf of Spangler. It appears, how
ever that lie changed his mind, ana
after Durborow had had his talk
with the powers that be, on yester
day Cable went around and had a
long talk too. He came away with a
smilingface. This morning hi friends
announce that he secured a promise
that the appointment would nc post
poned till next week at least. They
say that in the meantime Cable will
go to Chicago, collect some more
ammunition and come back prepared
not only to slaughter Durborow but
also Senator Palmer to boot, and,
moreover, get his man Spangler ap
pointed. They declare that one
thing is certain Twohig will not be
Mamer's successor. Mr. Durborow
is not saying much. He called at
the white house today to see the
president, but the latter was busy
with a special appointment. He says
he is still hopeful and confident of
Twohig's appointment. He says he
knows nothing of any postponement.
He simple knows that Carlisle told
him yesterday that the matter would
come up at once and he believes that
Carlisle will keep his word.
Things lietting; Intricate.
Men who bet on pretty nearlj-
every thing are holding aloof from the
Cable-Durborow lijrht today. Thinrs
are cettinjj too intricate for them.
ast Saturday night everything was
going Durborow's wav; to bet on
Durborow's winning was considered
cinch. But since Cable has shown
strength enough to change the presi
dent s mind the. sports are inclined
to look on the tight as too risky.
There is a deal of talk of a compro
mise candidate being selected, and it
egins to look as if that would be the
outcome, though no names are men
tioned. Mr. Durborow would like to
ive Senator Palmer her', but he is
intorniod that the senator has the
hingles and can't come.
CRICKETS FOR BAIT.
A Tennessee Man Who Ktlsct Theui for
'Yes, cold weather is mighty hard
on mv cricket herd." said Afton K.
llooten, of Greenfield, Tcnn. "My
cricket herd? Why, haven't you read
about it? You .see. I live in the mid
dle of Tennessee, surrounded by the
prettiest lakes that ever eye gazed
upon. The waters are filled with
trout and other game lsh. and in the
spring, summer and fall the sportsmen
flock here from all sections of the
country. One of the most curious
facts about Tennessee fish is that they
wish nothing1 but crickets. Red worms,
tall sawyers and the like, find no fish
that will bite at them in our waters,
except suckers and small perch.
'The most -serious obstacle, there
fore, with the fishermen is to get
crickets. I organized a stock com
pany with a few hundred capital and
started to work last spring". I had a
large pasture fenced in with boards
about ten feet high, sowed grass, built
my hothouse and incubators, and then
began gathering in my stock. My
pasture consists of about twelve acres,
and I calculated that- I could well
graze 50,000 crickets to the acre. They
sell readily to fishermen at SI per hun
dred, so you see what a rich harvest
there is in such an industry. They
flourished like a green bay tree all
during the summer and fall, but since
the cold weather has reached them
they have been dying off at a remark
ably sad rate, and if the freeze should
continue much longer I doubt if I will
be left with seed for next spring."

QUEER TRADES IN PARIS.
Every I'osKible cud Improbable Method
of r:rnliitc a Living; Utilized.
M. Kossignol, the well-known Par
isian police officer, lias just compiled a
list of some of the extraordinary
"trades" exercised in Paris, of which
the following is a selection: Ratters,
who capture living- rats and sell them
to exhibitors of curious beasts; col
lectors, who gather sewer grease and
seize the corks and stoppers at the
Suresnes sewer grating; stampers, who
beg . bread . crusts, which they sell
again; ant egg collectors, who take
th?ir gatherings on Sundays to the
mfa markets; bird "professors," who
djfEer their services at the market as
tm&e'rs of blackbirds, canaries and
parjtots; "senators," who are none
offier than the commissioners of the
flower market; and merchants for the
sale of mtfflt shelter numbers, who
stand in a Jlv and resell their tickets
to thair mytye fortunate brethren.
