A Typical Negro Camp Meeting,
Thcro is perhaps no more favorable
1'luco iu which to study negro character
mid maimers than the camp meeting.
This time honored institution is no less
social than relinioiiH in its nature. It is
usually held iu n partly cleared grove,
uurter the auspices of the local clergy.
Hither the colored population of the
surrounding region flocks, coming on
font, in carriages and wagons, in ox
carts and mule carts, on horseback and,
tuilo back in short, by every conceiv
able mode of locomotion. Its dress is
;ls varied as its vehicles. Indued tho
ui groes of tho south are of all peoplo
tliu most cosmopolitan in tho matter of
dress. Clothes, of every imaginable
stylo, color and "previous condition of
st'rvitudo" are pressed into use, so that
in this particular they present as great
a variety as the beggars in the nursery
As wo approach the grove what a
Dudley of sounds breaks upon our hear
ing the neighing of horses, the bellow
ing of cattlo, tho heehaw braying of
mules, tho laughter and screams of chil
dren, and joined with these a perfect
label of human voices, the wholo
funning n discordant din such as no hu
man nir ever heard elsewhere 1 Enter
ing the grounds, wo pass bauds of chil
dren, climbing, tumbling, romping, liko
so many troops of monkeys; gawky

to dusky beauties; groups of brawny
men discussing abstruse points of the-

der t lu ll becomes that it is so cheap;
that it can pay to grow and gather it
at the prioo. As a matter of fact, it has
failed to pay tho English grower by
this retaining, iu tho namo of his town
of .Stll'ron-Wuklcn, but a bint of former
importance in this particular direction,
French und Spanish soils being more
suitable to the full growtli of the flowers
ami foreign labor cheaper iu the work
of picking. Its use iu medicine has
practically died out, barring perhaps tho
popular belief that, steep(d in hot milk
or cider, it helps tho eruption of measles
to fully appear.
As a dye in creaming curtains and to
give a rich appearance to cako it is still,
however, in general demand, for which
purpose it is well suited in being both
harmless and strong, ouo grain, com

peculiar form of adulteration, for, apart
from tho crude and commonplace one of
dusting with a heavy powder, such as
gypsum, to give weight, tho similar
portions of other and commoner (lowers
have been specially dyed and wori:ed

llo Was Not So Smart.
"No, " said tho man with tho largo
bead, "I can't say that I think very
much of tho fux iu tho old fablo of the
fox and tho grapes. It is recorded of
him that after trying to get the grapes
by every way that his ingenuity could
suggest ho finally turned up his uoso

"Now, if that fox had had any com
mendable wisdom in his triangular skull
ho would have looked at tho grapes
blandly and theu announced to tho
world that they were sweet, but that
sweets didn't agreo with him; that,
owing to tho condition of his stomach,
lie considered it inadvisablo to eat any
thing containing saccharine matter, and
that, besides, a properly philosophical
fox believed in self denial and iu taking
things that were easily at his disposal

One incident is too amusing to escape
repetition. Tho Austrian embassador,
tho Ural' von Soilcm, most solemn
und haughty of tho representatives of a
solemn court, was dragged from his car
riage by the mob and "4ii" chalked on

reiterated demands for reparation,
which it was impossible to satisfy, only
made him the more ridiculous. "Wilkes

"Yes," sighed tho snburbau resident,
"I thought I had shaken off my hoodoo

figured out that my wisost plan is to

"When I went out there, it was with

my boyhood so happy. But my experi

All tho luscious fruit was plundered
from peach trees that I had watched

Not content with despoiling me of my

awakened ono morning to uoto tho ab

Then I put iu burglar alarms and slept

The Apothegms of Gulcclardlni 1530.
Make as many friends as ever yon
can, for you never know in what con
tingency a man may bo able to servo
you. Hide displeasure. I have oftou
had to seek tho aid of people against
whom I was thoroughly ill disposed,
and they, believing the contrary or at
least not being aware of this, hav
served mo most readily.
Uiiperccived beginnings often open
tho way to great mischiefs or great suc
cess, therefore uoto everything and
weigh well even the most trifling cir
cumstance. On your doing or not do
ing what seems at tho moment a mere
trifle (,f ten hang things of first impor
tance, so bo sure to consider well.
Never hold a future thing so certain,
however positively certain it may seem.,
as not, if you can possibly do it without
upsetting your plan, to keep in reserve
tome course to follow if the contrary
should turn up. I have of ten seen really
long headed men, when they have to
make up their miuds about some weighty
business, set about it by considering two
or three cases that are most likely to
happen and come to a decision on the
assumption that ouo of these cases is
sure to come. This is dangerous, for of
ten and usually there arises somo third
or fourth case which had been over
looked and which your decision will
not lit. You had much better, thercfow,
keep your decision s rictly to what tho
actual necessity of tho matter compels.

The Care of House Ferns.
Iu tho houso where ferns are kept in
duce by means' of evaporation, syring
ing or spraying as much moisture to the
air as possible, for they generally do
not successfully withstand a dry, parch
ing atmosphere. For the purpose of
retaining moist air about the plant
Wardiau cases or ferneries are often
used with good success or a glass bell
placed over tho ple.ut part of tho timo.
It is well to bear in mind also that
ferns, with tho exception of the hardy
upland sorts, grow in moist, shaded
places. It is therefore essential that
they never dry out and that they be
kept iu partial shade. It is not wise,
however, to soak tho plants daily,
whether needed or not. When new
fronds are unfurling, avoid placing tho
plant in a position whero it will bo ex
posed to tho full power of the sunlight,
as it will sometimes burn or L ast tho
tender young fronds. Woman's Homo

will see many au old negro come driv
ing in at a snail's pace, clad in ill fit
ting garments too big or too little, of
auy color or no color, ragged and
patched. He slouches on tho seat of his
tumble down wagon as. if it wero too
much trouble to sit erect or as if he
were about to fall over into tho bottom
of tho vehicle and go to sleep. His steed
is a mule, small, bony, starved looking,
wabbling iu gait, a very caricature of
his kind. One expects him every mo
ment to stop aud go to feeding on the
grass that grows near tho gutter. Tho
wagon rattles from afar. Every bolt and
screw is loose, tha wheels seem about to
fall entirely off, tho sideboards sway
and tho seat moves from side to side,
apparently at the peril of tho occupant.
Tho harness is composed largely of rope
and twino. Tho lines uve innocent of all

be willing to risk his life on a venture
that such a team would never get down

lounging comrades on tho pavement
with a guffaw that can bo heard a mile.
The voicas of tho ill clad but happy
group sound mellow aud sweet und good
natured as they chaff each other. Theso
voices aro the very expression of tho
happy go lucky, idle, easy, careless lifo
of these peoplo, too indolent to sound
all the syllables of their words. Yet
they are happy. To seo and hear them
one would think thero was no tomor

looks at it aud says "Aha!" He ap
proaches within fix inches and says
"Oho!" Then ho says " A-a-ah !" and
grabs it. Tho next instant ho swings in

of tho small blade of a knife is pri ssed

ho sheds tears. His struggles aro stilled

The Treating Habit.
It wr.s P( po Teles horus, who died
beforo tho year 150 A. D., who institut
ed Christmas as a festival, though for
some time it was irregularly held in
December, April and May. But for cen
turies before there had been a feast of
Yulo among tho northern nations, whoso
great enjoyment was in drinking tho
wassail bowl or cup. Nothing gave
them so much delight ns indulgence in
"carousing ale," especially at the sea
sou of short days, when fighting was
ended. It was likewise tho custom at all
their feasts "for the master of tho house
to fill a largo bowl or pitcher, to drink
out of it first himself and then givo to
him that sat next, and so it went
around." This may have been the origin
of that popular American custom known
as "treating." It is certain that upon
our Christian observance of this glorious
day have beeu ingrafted babits taken
