At a meeting of the County Exe

subject of raising funds for paying

respond promptly and liberally as we

The Alston Tragedy.
As we were going to pre'"' on O'Jr
last i?sue the terrible, news came of
t'le shooting and killing of Col.
"Bob" Alston at Atlanta Georgia by
Capt. E. S. Cox of the same State.
The difficulty grew out of Alston
refusing to cancel a certain bargain
as demanded by Cox. Cox became
enraged and actually hunted dow n
his oppornent who tried in every
w?y to avoid blood-sbcd.
? Finally be came into Col. Alston's
office cl sed the door ami demanded a ]
Col. Alston finding that persuasion j
was at an end, stepped forward and |
accepted the issue. The firing then
commenced rapidly, Cox dodging in
every direction, and Alston standing
erect like a man. Several shots
passed, Cox being shot in the mouth

struck Alston in the temple, and
brought him to the floor mortally

His most excellent wife has the
sympathies of all Georgia and South

"A Vulture, Not an Eagle!"
In speaking of the motives that
inspired Hoar's motion in Congress
to exclude Mr. Davis from the Pen
sion list, Lainar used a singularly ap
propriate figure of speech. He was
I refciring to the persistent attacks up
on Davis, a broken and aged man.
He said that the senator from Massa
chusetts, he bonevod, classed himself
among those who were called
Christian statesmen. He might have
learned more charity even from
heathen myt ho'ogy.
At this point the speaker paused,
turi.ed, and, in a stage whisper, ask
ed : "Who was it that was chained
to the ruck ?" and 'l humum, across
three rows of desks, whispered,
Without more than a deliberate
rest, Lamar went on. "When
Prometheus was chained to the rock
it was not an eagle that plucked at
his vitals, but a vulture." The ac
tion was suited to the utterance; as ho
said it was not an cuglc that plucked
at his vitals, i he arms were thrown
up ami the curving Swoop ol the kin-j
of birds was described in the gesture,
and then as he hissed out it ?vas ?
vulture, the light aim straight ncd
out and the index finger pointed at
Hoar. It wa? as fine and effective
piece of oratory as I ever witnessed.
Hoar felt the sting.
As Lnmar finished and sat down
Hoar rose and made a half apologetic
defence. Ho said that if he had
thought that his motion would have
been interpreted by the Senator irora
Mississippi, and those who, like him,
had been devoted to the Confederate
cause, as an insult to themsclvos, he
would not have made it.
Night Work on Morning News
I'ev. DeWitt Taj mage, in his pic?
tu res of tho "Night Side of New
York," thiiB discourses on the night
work in newspaper offices :
"We went in. We went up from
cditorinl rooms to type setters' and
proof readers' lofts. These are tho
foundries where the great thunder
bolts of public opinion are forged.
How pens scratched ! How the types
clicked! How the sciasors cutl
How the wheels rushed, all the
world's news rolling over the cylin
der like Niagaia at Table Rock.
Great torrents of opinion, of crimes,
of accidents, of destroyed reputations,
of avenged character. Who can
estimate the mightiness for good ot
evil of a daily newspaper ? Fingers
of steel picking off the end of telegra
phic w ire facts of religion and philoso
phy and science, and information
from the four winds,of Heaven ! In
Ii>50 the Assnciaied Press began to
pay 8200.000 a year for news, some of
the individual sheets paying 830,000
extra for dispatches; some of them,
independent of the Associated Press,
with a wire rake gathering up sheave*?
of news from all the great harve.-t
fields of the world. It is high time
that good men understood that tho
printing press is the mighties t engine
of all the centuries. High Water
mark of the printer's type case shows
the ebb or hYw ol the great oceanic
tides of civilization or Christianity.
Jus: think ofit! In 1836 all the daily
newspapers of New York issued but
10,000 copies. Now there are 500,
000, and taking the ordinary calcula
tion that five people read each paper,
two million five hundred thou-mud
people rend the daily newspapers of
New York ! Nothing more impress
ed me in the night exploration than
the power of the press. But it is car
ried on with, ob! what aching eyes,
what exhaustion ofhealth ! I did Dot
fiml more than one mail out of teu
who had anything like brawny health
in the great newspaper establish
ments of New York. Do not be
grudge the three or the five cents you
give for the newspaper. You buy
not only intelligence with that, but
you help pay lor sleepless nights, and
smarting eyeballs, and racked brain,
and early sepuletter."

Coming down on the car the.other
morning they got to talking abo'it
their coal stoves, and one man said:
'Well, I don't want to brag, but I

this winter I haven't burned but
three tons of coal, and the Btbveliav

How to Get Olarried Cheaply.
Yesterday afternoon, while a De
troit justice of the peace sat warmiug
his feet by the stove, and his nose by.
a cigar, a stranger entered aud pre
sently inquired :
"Judge, how muck will you charge
me to read over about fifteen lines of
printed matter from a book I have ?"
"Why, can't you read them ?" re
plied his honor.
"I can, but I want to hear how the
lines sound when read aloud. I'll
give you a quarter to read them to ?
"All right," replied the justice; "I
can't earn two shillings any quicker."
A woman opened the door at that
moment, and the stranger put down 1
the book on the desk, clasped her
hand, and said :
"Begin at the pencil-mark there,
and read b\( wly."
His honor's chin dropped exactly
eigh'cen inches by dry measure as ho
saw that the reading matter was tho
usual form of marriage, but he didn't
back down from his word. |It was the
cheapest marriage ho ever attended,'
and he didn't half enjoy the chuckles
i of bride and groom as they went
out.? Detroit Free Press.
