It. seems to be the wishes of the opposi?

After yestetday 110 smoking will be al?

has adopted n "rule against smoking on
that side of the Capitol. The roll went
into effect yesterday. The Senate put a
prohibition on smoking a good while ago,
and messengers and other attendants
have enforced it to the letter. It is pro?
posed to enforee the new rule in the
House equally as fully. The House, at
its last session, adopted a rule against,
smoking on the floor of the House, but it
was not supposed that it would 3Ver go
to the extent it has gone. Still the pro?

national legislators are not only ready to
enforce abstention on others, but are wil?

The voters wilt be called on iti the
spring elections to say whether they
want a constitutional convention. We
favor material changes in our constitu?
tion, but are not prepared to endorse a
movement looking to the calling of a
State convention at this time. One of
the changes needed is the reform of our
judicial system, by which we shall get
competent judges to try criminal'cases,
but this could be accomplished by legis?
lative amendment with much less expense
and f riet ion.'.To call a constitutional con?
vention is to incur heavy expense. The
convention itself would cost not less
than $200,000. A special session of the
legislatute would also bo^neeessary to re?
model our laws to lit them to our changed
constitution. This would cost about
$150,000. Then our code would have to
be revised and reprinted at heavy cost, so
all" things considered the convention
would be a very expensive thing. \re
the people with the present financial pres?
sure on them able to bear this additional
Hut thetc are other consideration.-! that
would deter us from advocating a conven?
tion at this time, which to our mind
carry great weigtt. The people are rest?
less and very'much mixed in politics. A
convention called now would be of very
uncertain character, ^whereas we should
have it made up of our very best mate?
rial. Let us amend our constitution by
piecemeal and gradually perfect it rather
than risk another Underwood convention.

A MAX WITH A TAIL.
Strange Freak That is Now in the
City of Columbia.
Columbia, S. C, State: A man with
a tail is the latest freak that is visiting
Columbia. He was born in no less a
county than Edgefleld and is now 'Jl years
old There is no doubt about his caudal
appendage. It is there. Several gentle?
men visited him yesterday And pronounc?
ed it the genuine article?tail. It is a
prolongation of the backbone and is fully
eighteen inches long and fourteen or fif?
teen inches in < ircumferencc. This is
perhaps the struugest thing of the kind
seen in Columbia.
Here is what two physicians who ex?
amined the man say about him:
This is to certify that we have exam?
ined the young man exhibited. We find
that there is a caudal appendage extend?
ing from the end of the backbone. This
appendage is'about eighteen 'inches long
and about fourteen or^ fifteen inches .in
circumference. This seems to be com?
posed of bone and fatty tissue. It is a
freak of nature and not a fake.

a young alligator. That's funny, ain't

I paid him $4.90, and Jim, that's the

chain around his neck. Then I got mo
a long necked bottle, filled it with mo?
lasses and walked up to him. Ho opened
his jaws to nab mo. That was my

tho bottlo up. Jim tasted the molasses
and began wagging bis tail. He broke

I taught him a lot of protty*rioks?
how to catcli flies, how to stand on bis

harnessed him up to a boat. Ho looked
around at me to soo what I wanted. I
reached over tho side of tho boat and
