Meals 20c Eighth. at tbe Crescent, 115 east THEM LEFT. 01d-Tlm Plantation Darkle? Almost a Hare as Illacif Swam. One sees but little of the old-time Southern plantation darkies nowa days. The passing of the old South ern body servants miiht serve as a theme for an interesting volume, s- mysterious and so silent the march of the great throng of them to that bourne from whence no traveler ever returns. Nothing is said of them. They are not creatures of importanco one would think, and their obituaries are never left after them in the pub lic prints to tell the people of tho great work-a-day world that the poor old slaves of the pat are dead and p-one. Thus for more than twenty five years the race of srenuine old fashioned plantation darkies has been playing out in Dixie, and they hava been "lavin down de shovel an ds hoe" in very truth. Few of them are left just a few and they are to bo found only on the large wilderness plantations of the extreme South. Here and there throughout the state of Georgia they can lie found right where they were left after the storm of civil war had spent itself, and they had stool thero around the '"big "ouse" like sentinels on the watch tower to guard the mother and little one while the father slept far away on some battle hill. The fidelity displayed in thisi entitles the darkies of the 'rJOs to end less praise. There was a war going on involving- their freedom, and yet they stood like a firm phalanx around the hom-s of the Southern soldiers while they were out at war, and these black-faced knights braved death at the hands of the Northern hosds to save the families of the men who had gone to the front to fight for a result contrary to the darky's emancipation. BLUFFING THAT DIDN'T WORK. Tho Conductor Knew a Trick Worth Two of the Cther Fellow's. "Yes," said tne smart man, who sat on the rear seat ia the smoker, "it'.si dead easy to bluff: these conductors ix you know how. Now, I'll make a, small bet that, although I have a ticket, 1 can travel to my destination without showing it or putting up a .cent.'' "I don't believe it," said the man in the front seat. "Well," insisted the smart man, "just watch me when the conductor comes along." Ten minutes later the conductor did come along. He inquired for tickets in a peremptory manner. The smart man made a move to get his. "Tickets!" said the conductor again when he reached the rear seat. "See here, old fellow," said the smart man, "I haven't got any ticket. I'm an old railroad man. Used to be conductor on the Santa Fe and I want to go a piece with you." "L'sed to be on the Santa Fe, did you'.'" inquired the conductor. "Well, I don't know but I carl pass you. By the way, what time is it? My watch isn't running just right." The smart man winked at the man in front of him and pulled out his watch. "It's twenty miuutes to 12," he said. The conductor held out his hand. "Give me your ticket or money enough to pay your fare, or I'll put you off the train," he said sharply. The smart man reluctantly pulled out his ticket. As he handed it over he said: "How in thunder did you know I was blnfiiug?" The conductor laughed a bit. "Oh," he said, '-you were easy. If you'd ever been in the railroad business for ten m intit- s you'd have said 11:40 in stead of twenty minutes to 12." Yale's Xew Telescope. A sextuple photographic telescope has jest been completed for the Yale observatories which may revolution ize the present astronomical methods and lead to valuable new discoveries. Having six cameras instead of one, the new telescope can cover a iield in the sky equal to that which would be occupied by 0.400 full moons. With this wonderful gain of perspective not only does it seem probable that it may reveal new facts relating to meteoric heights, but that it may cast new light upon the moon as a living world. Fnlargement of the negatives of the Lack observatory revealed last year the existence of a new lunar crater, and the Arequipa observatory has discovered physical change. evidences of actual Hats With the liailroad. A Lewiston, Me., paper says: "In j n backwoods Maine settlement that a ! great railroad brought into touch I with the rest of the world a year or r ! j two ago the inhabitants say there I were never any rats until the railroad j came. Now they are so thick the j housekeepers have to hang their dain j ties by a string from the cellar beams. ! This may prove a warning to the rat ; less communities when a railroad of- fers to come in their direction, and j furnish a new argument to the ob ! structionists." Terrible Japanese Fathers. Japanese children are brought up nnder a compound system of bitter and sweet, under which the father is supposed to be strict, while the mother is benevolent in fact, according to the Japanese idea, one of the four terrible things m the world, three of which are earthquakes, thunder storms, and conflagrations, is the strict father.

Suggested That China Should Approach Japan Directly. BY QUI! MINISTER. Let China Make Offers to 31 in ister Dun at Tokio. This Places Dun in an portant Situation. Illl- "Washington, Nov. 21. The state de partment has received a cable reply from Japan, through Minister Dun at Tokio, to tbe United States suggestion of medi tation. The Japanese legation at "Wash ington has also received from the for eign office in Japan a cable stating that the reply had been made, and giving its terms. Both were received here Sunday afternoon. The fact that they had been sent tirst became known through a dis patch to the Associated Press from Tokio. This much having become known the officials here make no further con cealment of the details of the reply. The 'cable to tsecretary Gresham is ac companied by unusual dignity and form ality, it having the imperial sanction of his majesty the emperor of Japan. It is rarely that the emperor speaks in di plomatic negotiations so that his action in this case is evidence of Japan's desire to express its approbation of the course of the United fc-laies. The message is in two parts, the tirst giving imperial expression of good will and saying that the success of the Japanese army had been such that China should approach Japan ditectly. Tho second part is more directly from Minister Dun and expresses the view of the Jap anese foreign office that as China has no minister at Tokio to submit a direct prop osition, it could be made by China through .Minister Duu. The cable to Minister Kurino is sub stantially the same as the foregoing. I The fact that the replies were received Sunday and were not made public until now is in part explained by the fact that they were in cipher and of such import ance that a casual summary of them was not deemed advisable. Tbe replies were decided on at a spe cial meeting of the Japanese cabinet on Saturday and were sent from Tokio Sat urday night, but the transmission de layed them until Sunday. The tone of the reply and the expres sions of imperial good will give much satisfaction to the officials here, and now that the facts are known no further re serve is maintained as to the terms of the negotiations which have hitherto been withheld. A new and important situation is now presented by Japan's proposition that China make a direct oifer through the United States minis ter at Tokio. This makes Mr. Dun the interesting -center of negotiations from this time forward unless the United States should decline to allow him to act as direct representative of China in sub mitting an offer. This is not anticipated, however. It is said that the usual course would be for the state department to no tify Mr. Dun, aud also Minister Deuby at Peking, that they were at liberty to trans mit from China to Japan such direct peace overtures as the former desired to taaKe. The reply of Japan is so concil iatory and receptive that it is pointed out that Minister Dun's skill as a diplomat has scope for conspicuous action in termi nating the war. N. Y. CHEMICAL ROBBED. The Faying Teller is a Oefaulter til the Sum of $ir.,000. Nkw York, Nov. 21. The Chemical National bank, one of the most prosper ous and most conservative institutions in the country, has for the lirst time in half a century, been made the victim of a de faulter. The amount involved, as far as known, is !jlo,71o, and John Ii Tait, the paying teller, is the official who is ac cused. Admitting be had wrongfully used the bank's money, Tait declared over and over again that he had not prolited one cent by eo do ing, nor had he used a dollar for his own benefit. Friends who were hard pressed for cash had come to him, he said, and hail urged him to lend money to them. Believing in their hon esty, and never doubting that they would repay him, he handed over the bank's money in sums ranging from 100 to jJl.OuO to them. Tait is suffering from nervous prostra tion at present aud could not be seen. He is prominent in the Methodist church and Sunday school. He has olTered his handsome residence in Mount Vernon for sale. .stlonal I'uion Mncial.

Whole Generations of I51il lirs Got Drink l rom an Indian Mortar. The noise made by an Indian wo man pounding corn in a rock mortar enabled the brave old Indian lighter, Colonel Benjamin Church, to secure the person of Annawan, the right hand man of King Philip, in 107C. There is hardly a town included in the Nipmuc country but has one or more of these crude mills of the red men. Grafton or Haranamiseo holds an immense one on the borders of Kitville. not far from the last settle ment of that tribe and near the bat tlefield ou Keith hill, where Philip's men came to grief. There were cer tain places resorted to by the Indians for growing their corn, and as far as my knowledge extends they wore usually on the hillsides. Some of the small mortars have no doubt been removed from their orig inal places, but others remain where they were used, fixed as the enduring hills. The soapstone vessels usd by the Ninmucs are of various sizes rind have been numerously found in Mill bury and Sutton. Along the streams, in clefts of roctis and on the highest points of land they have Wn un earthed, many) broken and others in perfect condition. I have iu mind one which lies in the western part of Millbury, weighing perhaps sevent3" live pounds and within fifty rods of Uamshorn stream. All that is known of its history is that the occupants of the farm had for generations used it as a watering trough for hens. THE HORSE AND THE KODAK. I'ositively Hefnses to Hare His IMcture Taken Kiiiilk Man Had to ITee. A Chicago man who owned a horse and outfit wanted a picture of the same. A man who owned a kodak "said he could do the job. A third man who was the friend of the other two said he would go with them and assist. They all went to that section of the lake front immediately south of the art institute. The owner of the horse drove the animal carelossly to the grounds. That is the way to pet the confidence of a horse unless the horse is aware of your intentions. After driving the horse around a circle several times the owner stopped him suddenly. The man with the kodak was ready to "shoot," but just at that moment the horse saw him and threw up his head and kept in motion until the kedak man had con cealed the box. The third man then came to the front. lie had an old newspaper which he unfolded and lluttered before the horse. The ob ject was the same as that which the ! photographer seeks to attain when bo rings a bell before a baby. Hut the horse wouldn't have it. Bv this time about fifty men and a dozen boys had I collected, aud each had a suggestion ( to offer as to how the picture might j be taken. None was successful, for j the horse was one of the sort that ! had horse sense, and one kodak fiend I was nonplussed and put to rout. SO LIKI GIRL. Bnt Everybody Loves Them Just as They Are. It was in a city horse car the other evening. after the performance of "Shore Acres," when every thing was crowded. Among the party who entered ' after the car was crowded were three young ladies. Kacii of them grasped a strap and stood. One of the girls who lifted her gloved band had a gold bracelet upon her wrist. A middle aged man jstmped up and ottered her a seat. She declined, waving one of her friends into it. Then a young man jumped up and offered his seat. The young lady bowed and told a lady back of her to sit. Then several gentlemen proffered her seats but she declined them all with a sweet smile. After she left the car she said to ber friend: "I'm awfully tired, I can hardly drag one foot after the other." "You ought to be," was the reply. "Why?" "You should have sat down in the car." "Yes, but you are not as strong as I." "I know, but another seat was offered you." "Yes, but that was Mrs. S and I want to make friends with her." "I know, but even then there were seats offered." "Mabel," said the pretty girl suddenly, "don't be a blockhead. Do .you suppose I was going to sit down when my bracelet was showing off so lovely?" In the Iteart of a Lor.
