>bar, he is one of the brightcst,
?MMft intelligeut and best qualifled
men for his line of work I ever saw."
Bo apokea eonservative hniincM man
this morning of a young man whose
woakness or disease may be inferred
from the nsc of the word "sober" in
tlie busiuess nian'g rcmark. How
Often do wn hear the satne remark
fa!l from the lips of ineu who know
each Other. Aml to whoni do they
geoerallj refer? Xot to the ooarae,
bmtal rowdy who tills up with mean
liqQOT whenever he can raise the
. and who at all tirms is hardlv
vorth Um powder and shot necessarv
to kill bin; not to Um bnm whose
aiamofbliaaii the condition of in
ition, unil whose ntmost t^ndeav
or is an effort to get enough mean
vhitkej with which to induce a
drowsy inscnsibility; no, not to thcse
kind, but generally to a yoiin^ man
for wliom there is yet hope, who is of
btttef stnff than the rowdy or the
bnm and to whotn the avenues of a
ueeful life had opeued up, but against
whoni they are closing on account of
his "epreea," The world says it is a
habit; ttJajMI says it is a disease, for
which, 'tis true, the individual is re
-poiKsiblc, but the busincss man says
no inatter what it is, I have tried
hitn once or twiee, have listened to
his regnts and his promises, have
seen him fall again, and ihough "so
bet he b one of the brightest, most
intelligeut and bost qualilied men of
hia line of work I ever saw," 1 cannot
tmst iny interests to hini and will
ha\e no more of him. This is be
coming univcrsally trui? and the tiine
is passing, has passed, when the
young man can go ofT on his "sprces,"
periodieal drunkg, and return again
to WOku conditions and expect the
world to have the same conlidence in
him as befort; expect the business
MB to make him the same trusted
ouiployee as before. The labor unions
are turning against him and will not
admit him to membership, fraternal
societies shun him and deny him
mi-mberahip in their brotherhoods;
insurance companies will not ioeure
his lifc; the grcat railroads of the
conntry will not give him work: the
busiue&s man no longer likes to"take
him back" and "give him another
ehance," and eocjety frowns down
upon him. 8o uiuch for the world,
The church is against him also, and
his fatc is sealed in Holy Writ, All
are against him.
Oh, Drink, thou art one of the de
mons of earth; thou hast peopled

HOW MUS. WU TRAVELS.
(Wata. DdTi OMaagO Timrs-HoraWI.)
She was a little woman, dressed in
? tlowing blue robe. From u?der?
neath her pantalettes of the same
hue two tiny bound feet limped
painfully along. Her face was
yellowish pale, and she wore rings
in her ears. There was no bonnet
upon her head. She smiled as the
crowds of people in the railway
station made way for hsr. Behind
her tripped her little srn. He waa
Chinese, too, but he v,ore American
clothes and his fcet were of natural
size. I recognized Mme. Wu, wife
of Wu Ting Fang, the Chinese Min
ister in this city. She was about to
take a Pennsylvania Hailroad train
for Cape May. All the people in
the station and along the platform
got out of the atumbling little
woman's way. No one joatled her.
No audible remark was made con
cerning her strange appearance. She
VM unattended save by an American
woman who is governess at the Lega
tion. At thegate a num'oerof men,
waiting their turn iQ pass, etepped
aside because they realiaed it was
not easy for the stranger to be 80
long upon her shrunken feet. The
little Chinese hoy dropped an um
brella which he was carrying, and an
American traveling man hastened to
pick it up and hand it to him. The
boy bowed politely and said, "T'ank
you." Mme. Wu smiled graciously.
At the parlor car steps the conductor
and porter carefully helped Mm.-.
Wu in the rather diflicult feat of
climbing up. I chanced to be in the
same car, and on the journey to
l'hiladelphia a number of little
oovrteiioswore abovn the diploatai'a
wife by Ihf P?H401? One carried
bof ? drink of wuter, another assistcd
her to arrange the window shade. the
mcchamsm of which.was a mygtery
to her. On the orowded platfortn ai
Thiladelphia the people were juat as
conrteous as they had been at Wash
ittgaon, and I donbted not Mme. Wu,
with lier little aonand the governess,
eould travel from one end of the
Tuited StoiH to the other without
so iniich as hearing au nnpleasant
word. Hut I could not help think
ing of Mrs. Conger in IVkin.
"TEIHIY" LOVES THE NEGHO.
The voters of th? entire South,
ivill be interosted in learning of
Govemor Uoosevelt's extr.iordinary
love for the negro race. It is eet
forth in the following special dia
patch to the Baltimore &M from
New York:
"irndcr the terms of a repealing
act passed at the last se38ion of the
Ogislatare largely thmofh the ef
foftl of Governor Hoosevelt, local
boardg of cdncalion are no longer
pennitted to designatc or maintain
aoptetjte scbools for the instruction
of colored children, This result
wa8 aohieved with the support of tlie
Platt Rcpnblican machine, after the
negroes and thcir eympatbi/ers had
fought a long battle in the conrta to
test the conatitutionality of the law
uodrr which they were formerly ex
eluded in many towns from pnblic
schoola for white children.
Governor Koosevelt declared that
the laws of the Staie shoulil no
longer tolerate race or polor distinc
tions, and thaj he was glad to kuow
his own child sat in school with a
negro ehild. When the bill waa
amunded it had the support of the
Uopubhcan leaders throughont the
Btato, and it passcd both liousea
without delay, and the Governor
signed it.
LOLTISTILLB, Oct. 14.?Governor
Koosevelt was<jiio8tioned by The Sun
representative regarding his state
ments relative to negroes in the
public 8chools. lle said he did not
recollcct the e^act lunguage used,
bnt said the facta are he did sign the
bill and gave his hearty approval to
it, and also at ono time in the Gove
dietrict school :>t Oyster Bay one of
his 8ons sat beside a colored boy for
a term. .
THE VALLEY OF YIRU1MA.
This seribe, who previous]y con
tributed Newland itema to the Citi
xi \, is now enjoying the gentle
breezca and healthy climate of the
town of Dayton, in the Valley of
Virginia. There are two gentlemen
from the Northern Neck beaides
mvself who attend the Shenandoah
Institnte in Dayton, namely: K. T.
Bullen, of Newland, and* O. ||,
Lowvry, of lleedville. We arnved
here aboutamonth ago. Our trip
through the Capitol City and BIm
Kidge mountaimj waa very delightfnl.
This scribe was afforded the pletS
ure of meeting his friend, llev. K.
L. K. Tune, of Northnmberland
county, in Washington city, who
was enrontc to Crowr Seminary in
Gheater. {'a.
Dayton is indced a very remark
able town, situated between the Blno
Uidgc and Alleghany mountains,
about fifteen milea east of the Weat
Virginia line. The town is very
<{uiet. Not a siogle negro reaides,
work8 or owns property hei*e. The
aurronnding country has localoption,
and there is not a liquor saloon here.
ftverybodv seema to be fripndly, hos
pitable and cultured. There are
about six churches of varions
denonjinations. The Jnstitute's vi\
rollment has reached lOt} and Uiore
areexpected to oome. Surely a more
suitable site eould not havc been
selected for a college,
The crops throughont the western
part of Virginia anffercd inore from

SOMETIIING ABOUT MKN.
Some young ni.-n eourt and tell
girla that they will do this and that,
but after they are married they seem
to forget all the8e thinga. Voung
men, when you make a promise tq a
girl, keep it. Never promise her
that you will do greater things than
yon are able to do, for this will cause
trouble. Nevcr marry a girl who
you have to bny, but marry the one
who is willing to sacrilice everything
for you, and if a girl loves you she
is wiliing to do this. Don't marry
? girl because you love her, but be
aure she loves you, There are girla
who will make you think you are
tluir beot friends, but aa at.on asyou
are gone and another comes in she
will tell htm what a big fool you are.
Fipd out who these girla are and
shun them. Treat them with reerTect
and nothing more. Stay away from
them and give them no cause to
think yon still love them. Try to
say "there are o hers."

TOOK HIM FOR AN ANHKL.
How tbe Late (ion. Falnior was Coa
fascil wltli Gauriel.
One of the late Ceneral i'alnier's
experieaeea which he never tired of
laughingover was the time when bc
was miataktu for a personage higher
even than the Tresident of the
I'nited States. "While I was (iov
"rnor of Ket.tucky," said he, "a dis
turbance occurred in some town in
the interior. I was at a distance,
but WM needed at the scene. There
was no traiu; no carriage; no buggy
to be got; the only vehicle available
was a big gilded eircus chariot left
by some stranded show company. I
didn't like it, but there was nothing
else to do, so I got in. You may
imagine I cuta great dash as I drove
through a suiall town. IVople tnrned
out in droves to see me pass, When
* left the town behind and reached
the plantations the negroes saw me
and stared with open mouths. They
followed me at a respectful distance,
until preseutly they were joined by
an old white-haired preacher, who,
on secing me in my rnagniflcent
chariot, raised his eyei aud his ajms
on high, and in a voioe thatstirred
all within hearing, cried:
*'Bres8 de Lord, de day of judg
ment am cum, an'disgemman am de
angel Cabriel hisself. Bredren, down
on yo' knees an' pray, fo' yo' hour
am hyar!"?Xan York Eccninrj Post.

Wi ahould say something like this:
"If, O Abdul Hamid, Beloved

you don't pay that little bill, and

HANNA WROTUY.
Senator llanna spoke in Chicago
in a teut in which there were t,00o
men, The tollowing extract is from
a stenographie report in the J'hita
delphia Timer,
Ouce agaiu the Senator tried to
speak. "Every dollar I ever had I?"
"Stole," shouted 1,000 men in the
crowd.
"How about the seamen you threw
out of jobs?" was shouted.
"\ defy ;piyoue tp pvove that I pay
uiy seamen any but the higheat
wages; they are all working too."
"You cut clowu the pay of your
longa'horemen in Cleveland."
"That is a damn lie," cried Hanna.
"You are a scab," shouted the dis
turber.
"Y'ou're another" shouted. the Sen?
ator,
?'Why did Congress turn down the
Boers?"
"Our's was the ouly government
in the world to extend sympathy to
the Boers. Congress weut to the
limit of its powers." was Hanna's
answer.
"How about Webster Davis:-"'
a8ked somebody.
"He got $100,000 for what hedid."
"Mark Hanna, that is alie; I know
Davia and he would not do that."
"It will be proved soon. He went
to the ltoers and represented himself
as Secretary of State. Davis proved
himself a traitor to his counlry as
well as to his party,"
Each of IJanun'a statements was
broken by shoats of "how about the
trusts?"
ROOSF.VKLT ENRAUES THEM,
One hundred extra polioerqen stood
guard over Governor Boosevelt at
Covington, Ky? laat week while he
attacked some utterancea of Mr.
Bryan and aasailed the political
methods of the Democratic party in
Kentucky. By innuendo and by
direct invective he a88ailed the
Goebel law as an act of illegal dia
franchisement.
A cheer for Bryan at Lexington
waa answered by the Kough Uider
with a remark that atung the Demo
crata of Kentucky to the quick and
threatened the meeting with open
diaorder. The Bryan cheer waa loud
and Roo8evelt shouted:
"Nobody but a coward will at
temptto interrupt free speech."
Kentuckian8 seldom aubmitto the
charge of cowardice, and newa of
Jiooaevelt'a harsh word8 was tele
graphed ahead of him.

OCK SWEET CilKLS.
A few days ago a Missouri farmer
wrote to the Mayor of New Orleans
tosecure him a wife from amoug the
New Orleans girls. The Mayor has
beeu sick and has been unable ncr
sonallv to look after tbe interest of
the Missouri CVleba, but Mav.n
Capdeville's good heart may be relied
e.u to do all he can for the relief of
the stranger.
It is not aurprising that a Missouri
man wants a New (Meaus woman for a
wife, aince, if he has neverseen them
he has heard of their biauty and
loveliness. No women are kinder,
morecharming or better disposition
ed. They gn made to bc ioved and
love in reuirn There are tine v.omen
.verywhere, but the New Orleans
girl is thus properly described by the
poet of the L'osfon llcrald:
She was broad in old Ki'iitucky.
She was c?ke in New Orlomis,
She was prctzels in Mihvuukee.
But in Boston sbo wus heaus.
Evidently the Missouri fifti
wants a taste of cu,*e amt he has ap
pbed a, the right place to get it, -

San Fkaxi'Imo, Oct. 10th.? .John
J. Valentine, preaident of Wells,
Fargo & Co., has been threatened
with removal from his position if he
continues toadvocate the election of
Bryan.
Mr. Valentine refuses to sjive out
the letter containing the threat. He [
said however, that tho ietter came
from p. hankey. Mr. Valentine said
he referred to it at a political ineet
ing to show the disposuion to coerce
people during the campaign.
Mr. Valentine said that the desiiv
of working people to pay the coat of
tho war in the Bhilippines was the
stronge8t feature of the campaign.
"The Spaniah and 1'hilippine wars
will cost the American people $*iiK),
000,000 by the end of the iiseal year
uext ,Iune," he said. "Tis the
nature and law of taxation to fall
the heaviest on the great conanming
classes. Now what dothey get for it?"
Robbed A Womaii'i Auipntated Leg.
A unhiue and shocking crime has
oome to light at Johnstown, l'a. It
was. committed at the lVnnsylvania
railroad atation when a freight train
daahed into a erowd of a\6O0 ex
cursioniats and killed two, probably
fatally injured two more, and pain
fully bruised many others. Mrs. .1.
C. Begley was among those hurt, hav
ingherleft legcut off. In theatock
ing that covered the aevered linib
was$100 in bills. Somecold-blooded
thief abatracted the money after the
accident.

1 heard a warui diocoaaion :n th
rotuuda on the phrase MeKinUy
Deaaoerata, aayi a writer of the \l
lot l,i Jnnni/rl.
Ta*o iin-n ooateodi d that ? man
coald vote for IfeKtalej and atill be
a Deinocrat.
But the overwhelmiug scntiniem
of the trowd which gathered around
was that mer. who vote for MeKi.iley
ire Uepnblieans, that they should be
"tagged" as K-pn'olieans and not al
lowed to vote In Deoaoeratic prima
ries.
This lively passage oecuri
"1'm a Deinocrat," jelled a f.llow,
"but I foied for MrKinlcy bt fofi iad
Vm going to vote for bim ugain."
"Yeu're ? Kepuhlican tben, tbat'a
what you are. and your pretended
Deinocracy foola nobody. If you are
a 1'einocrat and vote for McKinlev,
the epangkd fellow who rides two
horses around a cireus ring with one
foot on the piebald and one on the
back is only riding one horse. If a
man can be ? Mi;Kinley-I.>etnocrat,
? RepnbHean at.d a Pemocralal tae
same time, why can't a man be au
honett thief or a white nigger?"
That broke upthe meeting.
