There may be a new South, but some of the old southerners haven't heard of it. General Pierce M. B. Young is one of them, At a confederate reunion at Greenville, South Carolina, the other day, he said among other things: People may make you believe that there is a nsw South, but suoh is not the ease. There may be s new ship, but the old osptain is on the quarter deck and the old pilot at the helm. Yon may talk about your new South, but who is now the governor of the Old Do minion bnt the splendid f its Hugh lee! Who is the governor of South Carolina bnt the chivalrous and patriotio Richardson! Who is the governor of Georgia bnt the gal lant, the devoted Gordon And who is gov ernor of Missouri bnt the brave Marmaduke! All of them are the comrades of the old South. In commerce, too, we find, ths ez- confderates at the head, Green, Alexander and Logan being railroad magnates, and in every other commercial industry we find vet eran In the lead. In the Senate, among others, we we find the gallant and magnit oent Hampton, the chivalrous, glorious and ezoellent Butler. In the House we have fify- seven "rebel soldiers" of the 1S7 Demo crats. la -the Senate, of ths thirty-five Democrats twenty-two are "rebel soldiers," and confederate soldiers are now at ths helm in State affairs and managing the aCairs for the glory and perpetuity of the Union. . See what we accomplish by tne united help or only three northern states. We have elected the n rat Democratic president la a quarter ol century. There are some other indication that ths new South ha not yet been fully recognized. One of these indications crops ont in Flor ida, where Senator J. D. Cole, the Republi can leader in Jefferson county, was ordered to leave the oounty at onoe and atsy away until after election, as he wonld not .be . per' mitted to take any active part in local poll tic. As the order was given by a large par ty of armed men he obeyed It, and ths Dem ocratio organ of the county, eaysr "The talk of organizing the Republican party in this county is a wild ohlmera. It eannot be dons in ths face ef a compact, harmonious Democracy," and further says thai "under all the circumstances it is doubtful whether Maior Cole oould be elected senator from this cistriot, or oould take his seat if sleeted, and therefore it is possibls thst he hat aban doned all effort at organizing ths parir." As long as these things continue there will be reason why the Bepublioan party should be returned to power. There are many signs thst ths progrsss of ths nsw South is not to be greatly helped under Dem. ooratio rule. . BDIISRIAL HOTBS. The English Court of Appeals has decided that relatives of a deadperson hays no right to place flowers or other tokens on ths grave exoept with the permission of ths cemetery authorities. The lying about the crops this year is worse and more perplexing than usual. When they are harvested we shsll know about them. Until then the speculators will rain them -one day and exaggerate them the next. The people of Sabine pariah, Louisiana, ara comfortable. They have paid off all the mortgages on their farms. Ths last one lifted a fortnight or so sgo. Sabine pariah is a "white" parish snd its farmers have had the sense to raise their own food supplies, growing cotton only as a surplus crop, A gentleman and lady now staying at a Bar Harbor hotel have had an unusual exped ience. They met on the Atlantic ocean, he proposed in Sweden, was accepted In Russia, asked her father's permission in England.the marriage settlements were drawn up in the United States, they were married in Algiers, snd are now spending their honeymoon In Bar Harbor. Soma letters written in the early part of the fifteenth century havs been sold at auc tion in London. Paper was then precious and ths pieces are mostly about 13 Inohes or 13 inohes wide, and from 4 Inohes to 14 inches long. The handwriting is like that used in Germany, a kind of engrossing hand written with wonderful regularity as to the lines, which are about three-eighths of an inch apart, and the ihk is generally of good dark color, very seldom faded at all or changed Into the rusty color of many documents of much later date. , - A recent patent case whioh has come be fore Congress calls attention to the aggravat ing and dilatory procedure In our patent of fice. Last September s Virginian applied to ths office tot a patent on a cigarette machine, bntit was June before ths patent was issued him. In the meantime he had his invention patented in several foreign countries, his for eign patents ante-dating his American pat ent by several months. . Now our laws pro vide that when a foreign patent antedates an American patent ths latter shall expire at ths same time with ths former. Ths aggrieved , inventor, who had thought that his patents would ba Issued simultaneously at home and abroad, naturally seeks for a modification in his case. And he ought to hare it. An Angtuta, Maine, correspondent wri&s to the Philadelphia Press: Next Thursday Mr. Blaine will begin his stamping tour of this State, starting; in-aV Bangor. He will make twelve speeches in all, bnt it is not his purpose to make any long one. I doubt if he talks over half an hoar at any time during the campaign here or 'elsewhere. There are two reasons for this. One is thst he finds his old throat trouble coming back to him whenever he attempts to speak beyond the limit. The second is that he believe that a short speech with the faots massed together is better than a long one. The only exhaust ive speech that he contemplates now will be on the fisheries question and will be a reply to a recent speech by Commissioner Putnam, The manufacturers of Chicago expect great benefit from the completion of the pipe line that brings crude petroleum from the oil wells of lima, Ohio, a distance of 203 miles, direst to Chicago at the rate of 2,000 barrel a day. All the large iron and steel mills and foundries ss wall as the briokmakers and iiT.e.m.i in . torATiArliM. . 4t mnnMit 4Tia1v establishments direct with': the Immense tanks ip which the oUja received and the use of coal will bo dons away with. A barrel of Lima oQ is supposed to be equal to a ton ef coal, so far as results go, and the saving in coat is 50 -per cent., to say nothing of the labor and waste saved in handling. The pe troleum is thrown into ths furnace in ths form of spray and in connection with a jet of steam which turns it into gas, thus securing the best results. A report on the inquiry into the connec tion of diseases with habits of intemperance, prepared by Dr. Ieambard Owen, secretary of the investigation committee of the British Medical association , gives .some startling sta tistics for temperance people. ' Particulars have been obtained by the committee of 4,334 cases of deceased lives, aged 25 and upward, In which the habits of the person in regard to alcohol were recorded in five classes total abstainers, habitually temperate, . careless drinkers, free drinkers and decidedly intem perate. The ages of death in each class show an average ss follows: Total abstainers 51.22 years, habitually temperate oz.id, careless drinkers 59.67, free drinkers 57.59, decidedly intemperate 52.03. This makes the lowest average duration of life that of the teetotaler and. the highest thst of the moderate drinker, his average being nearly eleven years longer. The habltnal drunkard averages about a year longer than the total abstainer. Another table prepared by the oommittee,from which all deaths nnder 30 were ezoluded, showed the following durations of life: Total ab stainers 57.81, habitually temperate 66.48, careless drinkers 61.52, free drinkers 53.87, decided intemperate 53.42, Omitting lives under 40 years, the average age of death was: Total abstainers 62.74 year, habitually tem perate 67.71, careless drinkers 64.45, free drinkers 61.98, decidedly intemperate 57.47.

Aftsr years of thonght, experiment and bitter dis appointment he believed that he had finally succeeded in perfecting his invention. He had corns so very near success score of times only to fail; bnt now he felt assured that everything was complete and ths final test was to be made. This idea of the professor's was a curious one, and hs had labored patiently over it for years in secret, his faith In ultimate triumph serving to carry him through his many dis mal failures. The devioe, as I have said, was a curious one. It was a contrivance whioh, when placed in the hat of a man and worn on his head, would indicate truthfully that person's thoughts. It was a simple, in offensive-looking article, closely resembling a sheet of white paper, and so very innocent was its appearance that it oould be plased in the hat of even the most wary without crea tine any suspioion. But this must necessari ly bs done with caution, and when extracted by tne lniuatea oniy oouia do read tne nier- oglyphios on ths white sheet ths thoughts of the wearer of. the hat. . What advantage the realization of his Idea would be to mankind in general the .professor had not stopped to inquire. He had been too much absorbed for that; bnt he was not the kind of a man who would utilize his newly acquired power to a neighbor's disad vantags. He was too refined to bs indeli eately inquisitive, and too indifferent to his neighbors to sars much about them In any way. is invention must Ba a success first. snd afterward he might possibly stop to con sider how it might benefit the human race. XT U (Lti ... 11 finished, and he felt that he was about to be successful, he was in a fever to experiment on someone and yet he was loath to un earth anyone's secrets. The first person who occurred to him as a convenient subject for experiment was Adele, his nephew's daushter, who danced and sang abont the honse from morning t'U night like a veritable fairy. The professor's spirits rose as he thonght of her and almost instantly sank again. It would be so easy to secrete the paper in her large garden hat. where it lay on the table is the hall; but the professor had qualms of conscience. Would it be quite fair or honorable to read the in nermost thoughts of a youne srirl just bloom ing Into womanhood! - The professor had old fashioned ideas of honor and delioacy where women were concerned, and he decided that it wonld not be right. Then there was thst adorable woman Bertha, Adele's mother and his nephew's wife, who had been driven from her husband's side by his cruelty and brutal ity (who looked searoely older than her tall sixteen-year-old daughter), and had for five years taken charge of the professor's house. He would like well enough to know her se cret thoughts on many subjects, himself In cluded; but she was a woman, and he oould not honorably pry into a woman's thoughts. Clearly the professor was in a dilemma. He must experiment upon some man, that was certain; duc wnomi And when the man was found there would be mere or less diffi culty in secreting the paper in his hst snd in getting it again - The prof essor had rived tooTanch to himself, devotsd;, tot hUf'stndies and experiments, and had gone so little into society, that he was not learned in the arfof mall talk and little subterfuges, neither had he any acquaintance with the art known as sleight-of-hand, a little knowledge of which would have been of great advantage to him just at present. A man coming to the house to call and plenty came, for although the professor' had few visitors, Bertha had manv admirers ia spite of her being neither a flirt nor a widqw would of course leave his hat in the halL It would be an easy thing for the professor to pass through the hall and slip the paper in the hat unobserved; but the difficulty would be in getting it again, for the man would naturally wear his hat home. The professor feared it would be too long to wait until he should call again; the impressions might be blurred or worn off, for he was uncertain how long they would remain; or the man might disoover the paper and throw it away. At the idea of such recklessness the profes sor actually shuddered; but the shudder only strengthened his resolve. The experiment mast be made, and made it should be on the very next man who called at the house. The "very next man" proved to be an old friend and classmate of the professor's, one whom he had not seen for a long time, but to whom he was deeply attached. An opportunity offering, the paper was slipped into his hat. The professor then suggested a walk around the garden, as the evening was warm, and his guest readily absented. But once out "in the garden the professor's nervousness and exoitement were so great that conversation languished, and oonsoious that he was not acting like him self, he soon proposed that they should re turn to the house. To this proposition his guest responded with alacrity, and on en tering the hall they both laid their hats on the table. At that moment Bertha ap peared, and the professor's friend turned to her with relief, leaving the prafessor to re turn to his study, where he sat listening at the door, feeling as guilty as any thief. The distant sound of their voices soon con vinced him that it would be safe to ven ture forth and take the paper from its hid ing place, which he accordingly did, trem bling with joy and expectation. Once more in his study, he closed and locked the door, and seating himself at the table he drew-the shaded lamp toward him, and confident and eager proceeded to decipher - the hieroglyph ics on the white sheet. Yes! Me was right! His invention was s success, but even at the moment of triumph his face was clouded. What did he read! A few thoughts con cerning the learned subject they had been disonBsing as they left the house for the gar den, and then "What the deuce is the mat ter with the man! He must be losing his mind, for he grows queerer every time I see him. Can it be that too much learning is making him mad! Pshaw! In spite of his learned reputation the man's whole brain conld be packed in a nutshell. He has never accomplished anything in the scientific world and he never will. A plodder and as dull as plodders always are. A certain amount of intelligence, but learned in the strict sense of the term pshaw!" And more in the same strain. The invention was a success; the professor was convinced of that; but success had brought a large amount of nnhappiness with it. Here was his friend, the friend of h?s youth and manhood, and one whom he ex pected to be the friend of his old age, think ing such thoughts as these of him and speaking them too perhsps. It was a hard blow, for under his commonplace aspect the processor nad a warm heart, and he was loy al and sincere to the core in spite of his ha bitual seeming indifference. He is not old either. Take off the near-sighted spectacles, and trim the hair and beard, and he would be a handsome man, and a young one too. lie next experimented on a flippant young man who had oii'y called at the house a few times, and wai startled at the levity and blackness of his Noughts. There was men tion of horse n Ssa and betting, diamonds and ballet girls, debts and cards all foreign subjects to the professor, whose youth had been one of hard study and self denial; and even in his later years he had studied books more than men and women so muclj more had he studied books that his follow mortals were almost entirely unknown- to him; snd this man, this butterfly, this giddy, frivo lous creature, was a terror. Shortly afterward he heard the doctors voice in the hail for an instant, and on look ing, ont he saw that the hat was gone. He closed his door carefully and sat down and waited. A few minutes later both Bertha and the doctor were in the hall together, and then they went away again and he heard their voioea on the piazza. He opened his door stealthily and looked out into the hall. The hat was there! He listened attentively, then crept forward softly and seized It, Ones more in hie study he closed and looked the door, as he had done so many times. He hastily crossed the large room, lighted only by a student lamp, taking the paper from the hat as he did so. The hat rolled un heeded to the floor at his feet as he seated himself snd leaned forward to read the pa per. And this is what he read: "Bertha! mr beloved, mv own I That accursed husband of yours! To win you and cast roa aside! Brute that he is! Oh, Bertha, my love! what is the tie that hinds you to him! A frail link that could easily be snappep asunder by your soft, white fin ger. He scorns you and I Oh, heavens! Oae smile from you. one touch of yeur hand, is more to me than Ufa itself. My God 1 The thought of pos sessing you makes my brain reel and ray body tremble! You must give him up break entirely with that cur who has driven you from him. Oh, my love, come to me The professor could read no more. Quiv ering with rage he started up with a cry of passion and anger. "Curse him!" he muttered, grinding his teeth. "To make love to Bertha under my very eyes! A married woman; how dare he love her! How dare he think of 'possessing' her! 'A frail link to be snapped asunder! The vile wretch, the serpent! But I have found him out, thanks to my invention, and he never darkens my doors again. Bertha to be the prey of suoh a man as this! His very presence in the house pollutes her!" His foot touched something. It was the hat, and he kicked it furiously all around the room. As he reached again the circle of light shed by the lamp, the hat, though by this time badly battered, presented a some what familiar appearance. He picked It np. and examined it. The hat was his own and he had been reading his own thought. He remembered wearing it as he walked up and down the hall, but how he had made the mistake of plaoing the paper in his own hat he could not explain. 'How long he eat asleep he never knew, but he was roused by hearing footsteps on the piazza just outside of his window, and ths doctor's voice said: - "And now that ne is dead, Bertha, my love, you win let me tea you now muoh love you! You will promise to be my wife, darling!" And Bertha s sweet voice answered, "Yea. eboullsb Crab. From the Spectator. Christmas Island, a great rock in the Indi an Ocean, which we have annexed during the last ten days, cannot very well be reckoned as a new jewel set in the crown of England, be its strategio uses never so important. The island consists largely of coral, covering a volcanic core; but long exposure to winds and waves baa so honevoombed it all over f that locomotion is almost impossible. This, however, will not deter the intending settler half so muoh ss the fact that the rock swarms with huge land crabs of a "bluish yellow oolor, with large claws and outetart- ing ejea most offensive to look at." Mr. Rider Haggard has described the horrible spectacle presented by these crabs in "Allan Qaartermain." An even more gruesome ac count of these appalling creatures met with in another island is -to be fonnd in "The Cruise of the Falcon," by Mr. Knight. He tells us how, attracted by the smell of the fish he and his companions were cooking, the great staring eyed yellow crabs came slowly trooping down in thousands upon his en campment, and how, when pieces of meat were thrown to' them, they ate them silently and persistently, using their claws like forks, but staring all the time with hideous protru-' ding eyes straight out at the strangers who had invaded their home. Unless Mr. Knight's description does these yellow land crabs a cruel injustice Christmas Island de mands a body of Knight errants who shall at once free England from the disgrace of own ing such a nest of monsters. A Hindoo TO adding-. From the St. James Gazette. A correspondent of "The Scotsman," wri ting from Bombay, describes a Hindoo wed ding at which he was present as being inter esting not only as a ceremong, bnt as a spec tacle. "The branohes of the trees in ths garden were outlined with little lamps, and a large pond in front of the honse was fcnnir round very high up with flags between the wreaths of which lamps were suspended. From the -balcony of the house I saw ths bridegroom arrive on a led horse, accompa nied by many friends. He was dressed in cloth of gold and wore a splendid hat, and his richly caparisoned horse had wreaths of yellow flowers placed at short distances across its back' and hanging down to the ground.. He dismonted at the entrance, where his little bride met him and threw rioe over her own and hia head as a symbol thst she would oare for the wants of the house hold. They went together into the house. where the wedding guests were assembled, and sat down on two red cushions facing each other. A white cloth was held up in front of his face, and she covered her face with her sari, whilst a cord of yellow and white worsted was then put round their ' necks, joining them together. A large piece of muslin was then put round his neck and held up close to her, and under this they joined hands.- On leaving the house a bou quet, on which attar of roses had been poured, was presented to every guest, and wreatns or nowers were nung round our necks by our hosts." A cot ot red paint seems to have been one of the "Dropertiea" necessary at the wedding, and the veneration in which the red paint was held was exem plified by a fact narrated by the correspon dent. When telegraph posts were first set np in some remote parts of India the gentle Hindoo was wont to cut the same down for -firewood. A young engineer, who had studied the aboriginal oharacter, painted the posts red, whereupon the natives worshipped the posts and ceased to carry them away as burnt offerings. Housekeeping Goods.
