Winthrop (tho Woman's College) from

It would bo usoless to add tho many
other smaller items, which mako an ag

places there could be a saving,?that is
to say $500, in probably fifty places.
To instance, there is a phosphate In

We havo not space to particularise,
but thrift is a good word for Legisla

the House will likely without material
alteration go through tho Senate.
Many Legislators have wheels in their
noggins nnd feel that the Stato is all
right if tho Stato levy is not inoreaeed
and this it seems will bo the ease with
the present levyi But it should be
less. We havo all just been Hinging

The Houso shied for ten days Mr.
Johnson's (alias Bellinger's) anti-trust
bill. Wo bought a black pony fifteen
years ago from the tail end of a Bun
combe wagon and named him Router
Johnnie, after Burn's blacksmith in
Tarn O'Shantor. Laurons lies in a
valley like tho vale of Tcmpe and as
we rodo this pony home to our soup,
he could spy a Buncombe bow-covered
wagon a mllo onTodd's Hill and would
budge no further. Whon tho wagon
oarae near and he got a whiff of the
apples, chostnuts, cabbage, and cab
bage seed ho wa9 satisfied, bowed his
head and meokly boro his master
homeward. We always suspected this
pony of being moonnyod. Johnson
finally got his antl trust wagon up in
the Houso on Thursday last, and the
statesmen, smelling no brimstone or
dynamite, voted it almost to a man.

large tract of land, which will be

from the number of capitalists now

for Africa and bring back two ship
loads of monkeys. He sayB he has I
(riven the subject much study and has|
spent many days in the African jun
