The meeting advertised by the Center School listrict committee," asking ill s', met ions as regards the purcha-e of a lot on May street for school purposes, is an important one, and should be at tended by all Fast Side voters of the district. ' The necessity for another school building is very apparent, but the location of r-anie should he carefully looked after. Many think the committee -hould specify the lot so that they may vote advisedly. It is said to be the Cul ver lot .

A Kentucky man caught a big rattle snako ." V, feet long and kept it in his . store in a box with a glass cover as a enriosity.

The next morning when he ex amined tho box lie found the suako dead and the rat perched upon its head. A largo place in the rattlesnake's hide showed that the rat had .satisfied his burger with a dish of rattlesnake. Tiie ' box cave evidence of astrngglo between tho Miake and the rat, and tho marks upon tho snake's body showed that tho j rat hail been quicker with his teeth than tho snuto had been with its fangs. The rat was uninjured and was kept as : a curiosity. New Orleans Picayune. Tti Watermelon Opened His Month. "There is no mistaking tho fact that colored persons tiro very loud of water melon. This fact I had illustrated to mo once." said Captain of Detectives Miller. "Ono of my men had aTested a young colored man charged with lar ceny, ami while he was waiting to be 'sweated' by me tho officer made some remark to him about watermelon. "The darky responded, 'Well, if I have to go to jail. I'd certainly liko some watermelon first.' This was an opening for me, and as I found my man hard to 'break' I sent out and pot a large, juicy melon, and placing it in front of him iu my office told him that if lie won, Id toll the truth ho could eat the whole melon. "At ;ir.-t he refused, but the bait was too tempting, aud in a few minutes he told me w'm his accomplice was. I shall remember this Tact in the fntnre when dealing with a stubborn negro." Phil adelphia Calk An Ettncatrtl Horse There is an educated horse in Nash ville that, would bo a valuable acquisi tion to a tented aggregation of oqnes tvian prodigies. Iu ono respect this horse is superior to the people of Mem phis, iu that it knows Nashville's ways and humors. The owner of the animal evidently reposes the most perfect con fidence iu it, for, without bridle or reins, ho drives through the most crowd ed thoroughfares, guiding the horso by word of mouth, occasionally putting emphasis upon his orders by using tho whip. Those who saw tho intelligent steed going up Vine street tlie other afternoon at a lively pace, without, either bridle or lines, congratulated themselves that they were on tho side walk rather than in the buggy it was THE BLUE AND THE GRAY VETEUANS OF THE NORTH AND SOUTH MEET AT LOUISVILLE. The Grand Army Snrvtvor Hold Their An nual Reunion Below Mason and Dixon's Line For the First Time In the History of Their Organization Louisville, Sept. 9. Tho twenty-ninth nnnual encampment of tho Grand Army of the Republic was begun here today,, anil tho indications point to it as probably being ono of tho largest gatherings of vet erans that has yet taken place sineo tho close of the war. Tho great event this year will bo famous because of tho largo number of Confederate veterans, who are mingling with and bidding welcome to tho visiting boys in blue. This is tho first G. A. K, encampment held south of Ma son and Dixon's line. It Is oxpected that botween 250.000 and 300,000 visitors will be in tho city by tonight. This morning Coinmandor-ln-ehlcf Lawler held a reception, and for hours ! shook hands with comrades in bluo and i gray. ; ! Visitors poured Into tho Falls City to day from tho south ns well as from the north sido of tho river. Veterans who at- COMMATPER-ra-CniEF tAWLKR. tended former national encampments of the G. A. R. say they never saw such n largo attendance on the first day of tho great reunion week. All railways had extra trains, which were heavily loaded. Many Sons of Veterans are hero on route to their national encampment at Knoxville. There are others here who never attended these encaniimpiits beforo and who are now en route to the reunion of the Army of tlie Tennessee at Cincin nati tlie first of next week anil to tho del egation of tho National park on the hnt-ttelielde-f Chickaiiiaur:i the last of next week. There is no doubt of the fulfillment ot the general prediction that there will bo more 1'nion veterans together this week thnn ever before. Losses by death yearly increase, but the desire to visit old bat tlellelds and center with Confederate vet erans, whi arc doing everything to enter tain their northern visitors, 1ms attracted thousands who have not heretofore attend ed 3 national encampment. 'rtie Confederate veterans are here in force. Tho comrades hunt up members of their old regiments and brigades and then meet Confederates hcloning to regiments and brigades that opposed tlicni, when they confer about, how tilings went on both sides and have such reunions as havo not been seen since the service of over i!J years ago. Stars and Stripes Everywhere. The decorations may have been richer In triumphal arches and other designs at one or two other encampments, but at none was a city so profusely or generally decorated with American (lags as is Louis ville today. Its business blocks, publio aud private buildings and homes aro lilcr al'y covered with festoons of red, whim and blue, with the American flag ns thu centerpieces of every conceivable design. The flag is the thing that is displayed everywhere, and no city ever had more hunting out. than this city shows today. The disi inctive nature of the decorations is tho use of the rod, white and bluo to tho exclusion of every other color, even tho evergreen arches. The portraits of all I'nion generals wore displayed, and in unlimited profusion. The Confederntti veterans participated in all thisdecorating as well as in the entertaining. Tho words of Wat terson about this oc casion have been heard all over the coun try, tut tho deeds of llaldeman will bu known only by those who see The Couricr Journal building, which is completely en veloped in decorations of the American colors iu tho most artistic designs. Tho accommodations committee has se- cured quarters in private houses for from IS, 000 to 20,000 people and will be able to accommodate in privato houses alonu from 40,000 to fiO.OOO. Free quarters will lie provided for from 50,000 to 75,000. All the halls and large wareroonis iu the city havo been secured for this purpose. Thu use of tho old custom house has been au thorized by the secretary of the treasury. Tlie school board has turned over for tha visitors' uso the public school buildings. Tho naval veterans propose to live on the water, and for this purpose six or more steamboats have been placed at their dis posal at tho wharf. Hero is tho programme arranged for the delectation of this multitude: The Week's Programme. i Tonight log watches.

Tho parado of the Grand Army of the Republic will begin at 10 o'olock. Commander-in-chief Thomas Lawlor will be in command, assisted by a staff of 600 mounted aids. Pennsylvania will be tho third division or department In lino. As Pennsylvania ia tho largest dimart xnent of the order, so also it claims to be tbo finest equipped as to uniforms, para Dhernalia and flrlug guards, and invaria. Fennsyivanin will parade 4,000 oomrafltw. The department of Ohio may parade 6,000 wmrades. New York, New Jersey and the eastern states will furnish about 4,000 moro. The states of Indiana, Illinois, Iowa and Michigan will furnish 10,000 oro comrades. The sout hern states will possibly parado 8,000, making a total of 37,000 men. Tho more distant and northwestern states may furnish in addition anywhere from 2,000 j to ti.000, say 3,000, and that will make a total of 30,000 men in tho great parade. Among tho parading veterans will bo delegations from the posts in tho Sand wich Islands, Mexico and Canada. A fea ture of tho parado will be Ned, tho solo surviving horse of tho war, who will havo a float all to himself. On Friday tho Grand Army enenmp mont will probably finish up all its rou tine business and elect its officers for tho ensuing year and select the placo for next year's encampment. At present tho lead ing candidates for commander-in-chief ap pear to be Past Senior Vice Commander in chiof Ivan X. Walker of Indianapolis, : who was but 11 votes short of becoming ' the commander-in-chief at the encamp ment held in Pittsburg one year ago. His army and his G. A. R. records aro strictly j first class, as aro those of Past Department Commander Thaddeus S. Clurkson ot Omaha, his competitor. Kentucky will . probably bo allowed to choso tho next highest officer.

Hovey, tho now tennis cham pion of the United States, after six years hard work on tho courts, has at last, succeeded in grati fying his ambi tion. Hovey is ono of tho old guard of tennis players. In 1 S'JO ho stood fifth among the best ten players of the year, aud of the ten ha fiiiifilN and Clarence Ilo- yiTn JWMVihaTt nTtho 'ly lueu nun on luu courts. In 1891 Hovey was fourth among tho ten ot tho year, and in 1S93 ho won tho all comers, but failed to defeat Champion Oliver H. Campbell in tho final. In 1S03 Hovey stood third among the best ten, aud last year FRED n. EOVET. ho was also well np among tho best men in the country. Ho has won Innumerable sectional champion ships, invitation tournaments and chal lenge cup contests, and has enough silver ware to stock a jewelry store, but until this season the championship seemed a will o' the wisp that eluded him again and again when it was almost within his very grasp. In 1S93 i Hovey aud Hobart were dou bles champions of tho United States, but this year they wero easily defeated by Rob ert D. Wronn, the retiring singles cham pion, and Malcolm G. Chace. When Dr. Joshua Pirn, the great Irish expert, was in tills country not long ago he defeated Hovey anion,' others and gave tho Ameri can a number of points that proved of in ?stimablo value to him in his match with Wrenn for tho championship. Hovey is a resident of Newton, Mass., and is a grad uate of Harvard. It was while at Harvard that he began to show expert form as a wieldor of tha racket. In 1S00-1 ho captured the inter collegiate championship of tho United States and in the latter year he and Wrenn, tho man ho has just vanquished, together won tho intercollegiate doubles champion ship. Hovey has probably retired of toner than Tatti. Every year for tho past three or four years he has announced that ho would not play, but when things began to hum in tho tennis world he has invariably reconsidered his determination and again sallied forth racket in hand. He Travels In Itad Company. Governor Morton might possibly havo some chance of being nominated by tho Republicans wero he not so ardently supported by Piatt. Bnt people are bo ginning to be suspicious of him for the friends ho has mado. Boston Globe. It rays tone a Social Pilot. Tho social pilot is a new and most im portant factor in tho organization of so ciety. Although not oQciully recognized, and indeed only known sub rosa. his or her, as the case may lie, position is ac knowledged to bo of tho utmost impor tance, and it la no sinecure, for the duties aro most onerous, hut tho emoluments aro in proportion. Ten thousand dollars per annum is tho princely salary drawn by tho astute and diplomatic "pilot" who has successfully directed every detail, social and domestic, of a multimillionaire's fam ily in an eastern city, whoso entertain ments havo furnished almost exhaust less subjects for "space" writers in tho daily papers. Of course these pilots must possess ex ceptional qualifications. They must know the great world uu fond and bo past mas ters of all those unwritten laws by which the affairs of society are regulated, and which so effectually lubricate its move ments. An attractive personality and ability to command respect and readily in fluence people, together with culture and refinement, are indispensable to success. "Chat" in Deniorust's Maeaziuo.
