Now that It is acknowledged that the

The electiou in Kentucky is not only
resulted in a triumph for Democracy,
but even Mr. "Wnttetson has succumbed
to the successful march of free silver. A
dispatch from Louisville says: "The
Courier-Journal announces that it will
no longer oppose free silver and will
hereafter support Democracy when possi?
ble.'1 As this is about as clean a sur?
render as that paper couln make, under
tho circumstances, it is very probable
that it will be received back iuto the
Democratic party afcer a reasonable
period of probation.
And now comes the report that the
brother of tho Khedive of Egypt has fall?
en in iove with an American lady, whom
he ib so anxious to marry that it is said
be is willing to renounce the succession to
the Khedivate, provided the English pup?
pet, who ostensibly holds sway over the
Band of the Pharoabs, will consent to
hi? proposed matrimonial venture. As
nothing is said about a change of relig?
ion on his part, and as Mohammedanism
allows a plurality ofjwlves, the Amer?
ican lady might soon find herself sup-,
planted in the affections of the youne
prince, with all the "ninny unpleasant
com piicot urns such an event involves.
The young lady, under these circum?
stances, would do well to decline a mat?
rimonial alliance with a member of an
effete Egpytian dynasty, and take the
chances of capturing one of the many
handsome sovereigns of her own country.
The effort to establish a beet sugar
plant at Richmond is making steady
progicss, and as the beets raised in that
section of Virginia show a large percent?
age of saccharine matter there seems to
be no reason to doubt that the cultiva?
tion of beets and the manufacture of
Htigar will become a very important in?
dustry in this State. The plant which it
is proposed to erect in Richmond will
cost about, $400,000, and will have a
capacity of disposing of 500 tons of sugar
beets a day, the production of which will
require 0,000 acres .of land. The pro?
moters of the enterprise have already a
capital of $500,000, which will be more
than enough to furnish the needed build?
ings and machinety, and, iu the event
that the factory proves the success an?
ticipated, another plant will be erected
on James river convenient to the locality
in which the beets are to be grown. The
importance of the sugar industry to the
State renders it necessary tint extensive
experiments in the cultivation of beets
should.he made next season, with a view
of fully determining how far and with
what success the production of sugar can
be carried on in Virginia. So far all the
condit'ous for successful beet raising ap?
pear to exist in many counties, and, if
this belief is verified by actual tests,
there is nothing to prevent this Statt;
from taking the same lead in the produc?
tion of sugar which she has long held in
the cultivation and manufacture of to?

And n heaven in her smile;
There's poetry in her carriage.
There's decorum in her style.
Oh. her voice is low and pleasing.
And her modesty and grace
Lend a sweetness to the maiden
In the Pink
With her sunny tresses falling
Like a cataract of gold
O'er divinely molded shoulders.
Snowy white, hut never cold?
Oh, the heart with rapture's bobbing
While I view the blue eyes chaste
Of tho maiden who's attired
In the Pink
She abhors the baggy bloomers
So suggestive of the Turk;
She affects no stunning costumes?
Calls them till the devil's work;
She is pleased and well contented
To he modest, pure, and chaste.
And adorn her perfect figure
With a Pink
She's familiar with tho (lowers.

She has read the classic authors

WOMEN LEARNING TO SWIM.

Beginners In swimming have great
difficulty in rapid improvement on
account of tho utter laid; of Belf-confi?
dence and fear of drowning. Tho
movements are comparatively easy to
learn, but the courage to strike out
Into deep water is necessary in order
to be successful. Hitherto the only
thing which has given confidence was
tho great ugly cork life preserver,
which kept one's head high and dry,
perhaps, but which prevented tho
proper use of the arms, and was, be?
sides, decidedly uncomfortable. The
rubber rings which can bn tied
about the body are much pleasant er
than tho cork affairs, but they are ob?
jected to because they are in tho way
of the free movements of the arms.
A new arrangement which is just
put upon the market, and which lacks
all tho disadvantages of the old meth?
ods of enforcing courage and still has
all the advantages desired, is the
pneumatic corset. This is not a bun
glesome affair, but fits quite closely to
the body under the bathing suit, like
any ordinary corset, and is a support
to the figure, especially if corpulent,
adding but little to the size of tho
This is far ahead of any old-style ar?
rangement, and one is not reduced to
tho necessity of taking a few dry land
lessons In swimming while suspended
across a hammock. All the exercises
may he practiced in the water. Fa?
miliarity with the feeling of the water
about the neck nnd head, with the
sense of security given by the corset,
will soon take away all fear, and then
one may discard it. It has always
seemed too much to expect of any one
to leave fear behind before the art of
swimming was truly mastered. This
new assistance to learning to swim is
a most pleasant one.

She Wim garbed in the extreme of
fashion. Jewels Hashed from tho col?
lar of her waist; precious stones shone
from each ear. Costly gems covered
her dainty, ungloved hands. There
was nothing particularly extraordina?
ry about all that, but there was about
her finger tips.
The strangest tiling about it was
that the woman was an American. If
?he had been an Indian or an Egyptian
princess, the innovation would have
been taken as a matter of course. But
she w,isn't?she .was an out-and-out
American, and a pretty one at that.
Passengers in the same section of the
car with her craned their nocks and
peeked from under newspapers to fer?
ret out the mystery. Once a fly lit
upon the woman's face. She raised
her hand to brush it away. And then
tho puzzle was solved.
At the tips of her fingers tiny apert?
ures, as big as a pin head, had been
bored in her glossy nails. Snugly
clasped on these were little chains an
inch long, and on the end of the dang?
ling links were dlnmond studs, a carat
