the weather of to-day controls the weather

the little animal will out see his shadow

It Wn? Provided by u SI. I.oiiIk Man For
111* Wife's Feuiluiun Friend*.
A wealthy St. Louisun living in tlio
vicinity of Lafayotto pnrk provided a
novel form of entertainment for his
wife's guests one evening, says the St.
The hostess was extremely anxious to
provido something original for tbo edi?
fication of a score of guests whom eho
intended to call together for an informal
evening. Hor husband promised to pro?
vide Mich novelty and took a boon com?
panion into bis confidence to that end.
They had not oxchanged ideas 530 con?
secutive seconds beforo they hit upon
the device of converting the ulegant
parlors into n gambling house pro tout.
A faro bank, a roulette wheol and po?
ker and keno lay outs wero easily pro?
curable, as tbo conferees well know,
and that part of the prograiurno was
soon settled. The friend suggested as u
pretty epilogue tbo introduction of a
pair of bulldogs, guaranteed to reduce
each other to mince meat in three
rounds. This rather staggered the ambi?
tious host, but his friend is award poli?
tician, and with t he eloquenco ho always
keeps on draft sum convinced thu other
that the evening would be a failure
without tlioso bulldogs.
Thoevoning arrived, and with itcaine
the gnests. The Indies wero prettily
shocked at sight of the gambling para?
phernalia, but became accustomed to it
in an astonishingly short time and shar?
ed in tho games with becoming vim. It
was when the yellow bulldogs made
their unexpected entrance that tho hor?
ror of tho fair guests proved genuine.
Tho beasts yelped and growled and
showed other peculiarly canine symp?
toms of "spoiling for a fight. " There?
upon tho ladies sought refuge on the pi?
ano and card tables and chairs, con?
ducting their retreat as from a moose.
Notwithstanding excited fominino
protestations, the friend who had been
consulted as to a novelty in entertain?
ment unleashed tho dogs. It was an ox
citing climax to an "original" evening.
The dogs feasted for live minutes on
choice bits of each other's anatomy.
Tbo ladies screamed and the friend who
was consulted exulted in tho success of
his novelty. When ho was qnito con?
vinced?and it took a considerable time
to convince him?that tho ladies' desire
for gore had been fully gratified, ho
doused tho dogs into n convenient tub
of water and separated them.
HOW ALLSPICE GROWS.
Something Almut llio Itenntirul ami Fra
grant I'iiuvnto Tree.
The pimento or allspice tree is culti?
vated in the West Indies ami Jamaica.
This beautiful tree usually grows to a
height of about 30 feet It has a straight
trunk, much branched above, and cov?
ered with a very smooth brown barb.
Thu leaves vary in size and shape, but
are always of a dark, shining green
color. During the months of July ami
i August the tree is in full bloom, tho
blossoms oousistiug of very fragrant,
?mall, white flowers.
I When a new plantation of piinentc
I trees is to bo formed, no regular sowing
I or planting takes place, because it is
next to impossible to propagate the
young plants or to raise them from
seeds in parts of tho country %vhero they
are not found growing spontaneously.
Usually a piece ol land is selected either
close to a plantation already formed or
in a part of the woodland where pimen?
to trees are growing in a native state.
The chosen piece (if land is then cleared
of all wood except these ttOCS, and the
felled timber is allowed to remain ou
tho ground for tho purpose of protecting
the very young pimento plants.
At the end of two years tin; land is
thoroughly cleared, and only the most
vigorous pimento trees and plants are
loft standing. The plants come to ma?
turity in about seven years.
In favorable seasons the pimento crop
?IS enormous, a single tree often yjc Idiug
a hundred or more pounds of the dried
spice. The berries are picked while
' green, because it" left on the tree until
ripe thoy lose their pungent taste a:;d
are valueless. The green berries are ex
posed to the sun for a week or ten days,
when they lose their green color anil
turn a reddish brown. When perfectly
dry, they arc put in hags and casks for
The odor and the taste of the pimento
berries are thought to resemble a com?
bination of those of cinnamon, nutmeg
und cloves; hem.) the familiar name

Growth of Knglisli.
The growth of the English language
during the present century has boon
without parallel in the history of any
tongue. The commercial associations of
the English und American people with
all tho nations of the earth have brought
contributions from every clime to enrich
ODr mother tongue, and tho result is
that there are words in common use in
the English language from every known

NEW YORK STOCKS.
New York', Feb. 1.?The feature >>f the
11:i>? in stock und financial circles was tlie
enormous demand nnd steady advance in

transactions in this department "i stocks
rooted up the large total of $51,058,000 and
the business was unusually well distrib?
uted. Foreign as well as loenl bouses
weie in the market for good bonds, and
in many cases, owing to the advance in
prices, commission orders could nor lie
executed. One reason for this activity is
disssatisfnetion on tl>e part of the capi?
talist- with business seeking these Invest?
ments. The improvement In prices was
not confined to ;:ilt edged securities.
Stocks, on the other hand, were irrcgu
hr.'. lint in the main firm. The Irrcgu
Inrity was attributed to a desiru of the
Senate committee to amend the general
arbitration treaty. London firms sold
fairly large amounts of international
stocks on this acCsimt and professional
operators short of the market attempted
to force liquidation. Very little impres?
sion was made on prices except in a few
instances. .Manhattan. Luckawanpa and

and did not receive the support accorded

BUILDING AND LOANS.
Vigorous Donial of the Recent Adverse
Tennessee Supreme Court Decision.
The recent failures of the Building and
Loan Associations at Knoxvillc, Tenn.,
causes considerable comment and specu?
lation in this city. A prominent attoi-,
ney saiil to a Times reporter yesterday
that the amount of money invested in tin
Southern Building and Loan Association
of Knoxville throughout Southwest Vir?
ginia was surprising. He knew of IJ)8,000
in this city and he was told by a gentle?
man from Christiansburg that at least
SfO.OOO was invested in the Southern by
citizens of that place. So far as Roanoke
is concerned the amount mentioned above
is only a small fraction of the real sum
invested, it being estimated by competent
authorities that the amount will reach
$30,000, if it does not go much beyond
The Times has received a copy of a let?
ter from James II. Bible, general attor?
ney of the Chattanooga National Building
and Loan Association, to the officers and
directors of that organization, in which
he denies emphatically thnt the supreme
court of Tennessee has rendered tiny de?
cision that even remotely nffects injuri?
ously the contracts of building ami loan
associations, when such associations have
complied with their charter and by-laws
in the transaction of their business, and
in proof of this assertion he cites the rec?
ords, adding, In conclusion, that it looks
more like an effort on the part of the oil!
cers of building and loan associations who
make such a statement "to shift the re?
sponsibility of*their own misdeeds and
cause their stockholders to exonerate
them from all blame.''
