Whekkas, It is deemed to the best inter ests of the party and that it will better serve the majority of the clubs to hold Con gressional Conventions, instead of a State Convention of clubs, aud with a view of making the organization of clubs more efli cient by the organization of Congressional District Association of Clubs; it is therefore ordered that u Convention of Democratic Clubs of each Congressional disirict be held Oil 1 Vcducsduy, the first day of June, lK'd-, at the following places: For the First Con irrpMsional district at Weston : for the Sec r>n<l Congressional district, atOhnrles-Town; for the Third Congressional district at Charleston, and for the Fourth Congression al district at Raven*wood; for the purpose of organizing District Associations of Demo cratic Cl ubs and transacting sucb other busi ness as may coine before the Convention. In such Conventions local clubs will be enti tled to the following representation; All clubs with a membership of one hundred or less will be entitled to live delegates ; with more than one hundred and less than two hundred, seven delegates, and with two hun dred or more, nine delegates. The object of calling said Conventions to meet at the same time and place as the Con ventions to elect delegates to the National Convention, is to afford delegates the op portunity of attending both Conventions, thereby saving both time and expense. The County Committees and those heretofore appointed to organize clubs, and all Dem ocrats who believe in sucb an organization of the party as will make it invincible in the coming campaign are requested to as sist in the work of organizing clubs in every magisterial district and to have prop erly represented at the Conventions.

The conventions will lc held on Wednesday, June 1st, 1892, and at the following places: In the F irst Congressional dictrict at Weston, in the Second Congres sional district at Charles-Town, in the Third Congressional district at Charleston, and in the Fourth Congressional district at Havens wood.

Daugh ter of Hon. Henry G. Davis. In Secretory Elkins’ household at Washington, there are three lovely wom en of different and distinct individuality to attend to the social duties that fall to the ladies of the Cabinet. Mrs. Elkins, who is enjoying now the lull uieed ot pleasur* in Washington society, which she has tested as Hallie Davis some sev enteen or eighteen years ago, when she was a debutante and Mr. Elkins was pay ing her court, possesses one of those truly feminine natures that has always and will always need tender protection. She is a sweet wife-and devoted mother and a charming hostess. l'he young ladies in the family are Mr. Elkins’ daughter, Miss Elizabeth Elkins, and Mrs. Elkins’ sister, Miss Grace Da vis, who has spent the season in Wash ington. Miss Elkius is a vigorous, bright-minded, self-reliant girl, with a hearty cordiality in her pleasant voice and her firm hand clasp. She is just the j sort of a girl to put a bashful man at ease or make a self-possessed one pleased to find himself in her company, or smooth | over rough places for the timid and help the alert to get all the good there, is out I of opportunity for fun. She can talk well, and dance well, and is pleasant company at a dinner party or a dance. Indeed, at breakfasts and dinners she is a coveted guest on account of her conver sational powers, ^he is well informed ami cultivated—not merely accomplish ed. but cultivated—has opinions of her own on subjects, and can expre— them with cleverness, wit and force. She doesn’t give all her time to the frivolities of social life, but does a great deal of reading, and reading that embraces a wide range of subjects even for a Nine teenth century young woman. She can write well, too, and has quite a literary bent that has been exercised under a uom de plume—don’t you wish you knew what it was? her work appearing in magazines. She is a handsome girl, with a fine figure, above medium heiglith, blonde hair, and a frank, expressive face, full of forceful character. She is always handsomely and appropriately gowned, and her costumes are suggestive as much of her individuality as of the fashions of the hour. She is a better, truer type ot the American girl—the daughter of a republic—than the weak little Daisy Mil lers our cousins in other lands judge us by, and the sort of a girl Uncle Sam cau look on as a fit representative. Miss Grace Davis is tall, slender and lithe as a reed, and has plenty of spirit and vivacity. She lias won belleship in Baltimore, where she spends her winters, 1 aud is one of the most popular girls in Washington, socially. She is fond of 1 outdoor sports, and is a ashing rider, al though the whirl of the season lias given her no chance to ride*during the winter. She keeps her horse, a spirited thorough bred, in Baltimore, aud whenever she can goes over for a ride. She has fre quently followed with the Elkridge hounds on a drag hunt, and is one of the best crosscountry riders. She drives well, too, but in Washington her chief outdoor exercise is walking out with a net collie. There’s nothing insipid about her, either, nor any hint of affectation. She is bright, clever iu conversation aud frankly outspokeu. She is geuuiuely fond of the gay social life, aud up to the time Ash Wednesday came creeping in gray and gloomy, was on the go, con stantly enjoying herself immensely. She has that indescribable quality, “style,” which counts for more than beauty in the long run, and is very attractive in addition. She has the fair skin that goes with blue eyes and the brown hair, and it is heightened by the color which plenty of outdoor exercise brings to the cheeks and lips. Her hair is a rich brown and very abundant, and she in as supple as a willow wand in her movements.—*V. Y. Advertieer. LEMOy ELIXllt. Pleasant, Elegant, Reliable.

What would gratify most, no doubt such American ladies as may honor nu bv reading these sketchy recollection?, amid all those picturesque surrounding* of Eastern royal life, would be, I think, the various Tosha’khaims or treason chambers of the Indian courts. Some of the finest gems in the world are still to be seen in these Tosha’khaims of the peninsula, where they are greatly prized and carefully guarded. Many «*» the best pearls from Ormuz <>r Ceylon, of the choicest pigeon blood rubies from Burmah ; emeralds of extraordinary size carved with long inscriptions in Persian, Arabic and Sanskrit, with' delicate and i costly enamels after the style of the mas ter art of .Teypore, were stored in that royal collection wh ch I inspected at Ba | roda of Guzarnt. There were sword* whose hilts alone were worth a large »> late, so richly were they crusted will : costly stones, and the blades of sum* among them were of such fine and per feet I y tempered steel as to l>e occasional ly more valuable than the hand lee. Cer i taiii among the choicest blades bad ' slots cut in the damask steel, up and down which ran costly pearls or rubie* cut to a round head, and some of then thrust into spunl scabbards, so faultle were their spring and elasticity, flu old Mahratta custodian would suddenly open some old marmalade jar or sardin* I box taken from the great barred vaul ! and turn out of this unlikely receptacle rolled up in an ancient re*] or green rag such a belt of sapphires and diamonds __ i:..i.„ i bracelet or anklet or ring for the nose or 1 finger that must have made the eves >! ; any lady who had a proper and becoming passion for beautiful things sparkle likt the jewels themselves. On high public occasions these priucei anti magnates of India vie with each oth i er in the dazzling and gorgeous display j of gems with which they repair on thcii elephants to durbars or receptions. Tht native classical name for such lovely bau ! bles is sautosha, Sauskrit word for “con ; tentment,” as if their wonder and beaut) were calculated to fill ordinary ltearti : and minds quite to the brim. It is bet ! ter, however, for those who arc not rail liouaires to talk and thiuk a-r little si possiole about the glittering contents o: those Indian trensure*chaml>ers.—Chiea go Tribune. He Grew a \eu Lung. Not long ago the writer was in a coun i try noted for its health fulness. One n the men whose business it is to boom tin town told the following as an induce 1 ment : “There was a man who lived iu Illi nois who had consumption. He bar 810,000 life insurance, which he liar 1 placed on his life before he becann j marked. The doctors told him that hi could not live six months; his fricndi encouraged him in the same way. Hi 1 told them he did not think he would livi ! that long, ami that he did not care if In died the next day. He made a sale o his life insurance policy at 75 cents on tin dollar, and came here with 87,500 ii money. He went to the cemetery her and bought u lot, and got it might; cheap, for there was never much demaw for that sort of real estate in this viciui ty. While he was fixing it up an< while he was cultivating the acquaintano ; of an undertaker he began to get better He had one lung when he came here and you could hear him breathe a b’oel away. He lingered until he began t< pick up, and the first thing we knew In had sold his lot in the cemetery. Hi actually grew a new lung without takint anything but the blessed atmosphere o this glorious climate. He got well o the consumption. He went into busines on bis life insurance money and lived tei years. His death was caused then byui accident. He bad grown to be a riel man before he*departed his life. ILL is not ouly a healthful climate, but it i a good place to make money. 1 her< was a man who lived in Galveston, wh< had a row with his son about some thing and told him one day that hi w#uld give 8100 for every mile he trav eled away from Galveston and did no return. The boy started out and go this far and drew *n the old man, sayinj he had concluded to stop here. The oh man was as good as his word and sen him a check for 820,000. On this th< boy went into business, and he is no\ worth 8250,000." A mother was calling the attention o her little boy to the moon, which was l be seen clearly but pallidly in the earl; afternoon, “Why, you can’t see th moon in the daytime," replied the young s er. “Oh. yes, you can—there it is eve the trees 1” The little fd ow looked, r pi had to admit the fact that he saw it, bu he added: “ ’Talo't lighted, an.jhaw.” »Canid Make Hih Hair Curl.

I was born in Germany, and wlieu a couple of weeks old shipped for America, and I've been there ever since, and that’s sixty four year# by the watch.— I'm an American in principle and German at heart, and it’s the bo-s combination. Well, how do you get along, as a rule—prof, tv fairly?” “I’ve a rather large family—” “There, that’s it—big family, and trying to raise them on a salary. Now. what did you go nnd do that for?” "Well, I thought—” “Of course you did. You were young and confident, nnd thought you could branch > out and make tilings go with a whirl, and here you arc, you sec! Hut never mind ibout that, I’m not trying to discourage you. Dear me, I’ve been just where you arc my self. You've got good grit; there’s good ituff in you, I can see that You got a wrong start, that’s the whole trouble Hut , von hold your grip, and we’ll sc* what can I be done. Your caae ain’t half as bad as it might be. You are going to come out all right—I'm bail for that. Boys and girls?” “My family ? Yes, some of them are boys 99 “And the rest girl-. It’s just as I expect* I ed. But that’s all right, and it’s tatter -o, I anyway. What arc the l>oys doing -learn > ingatrade?” . “Well, no—I thought “It's a great mistake; it's the biggest mis take you ever made. You’ve seen that, in your case. A man ought always to have a trade to fall back on. Now, 1 was n bar ■ Dev* maker at lir^t. Did that prevent me I from becoming one of the biggest brewer* i in America? Oh, no, I always bad the har i ness trick to fall back on in rough weather. . Now if you had learned how to make bar . ness—however, it’s too late now; too late, ! and it'e no good plan to cry over spilt milk. But as to the boys, you sec—what’s to be come of them if anythiug happens to you ?" I “It ha.-, been my idea to let the eldest one * succeed me—” . “Oh, come! fcupposethe urm don’t want , him?” ; “I hadn't thought of that, but —” , “Now, look here; you want to get right down to business and stop dreaming. You are capable of immense things—man, you cau make a perfect success in life; all you 1 want is somebody to steady you, uud liooft you along on the right road. Do you own I anything in the business ?” , “No—not exactly; but if I continue to , give satisfaction I suppose I can ket p my— " “Keep your place—yes. Well, don't you , depend on anything of the kind. They’ll bounce you tin-minute you get a little old and worked out; they'll do it, sure. Can’t ' you manage somehow to get into the tirm — !' that's the great thing, you know.” > “I think it is doubtful, in fact, very doubt ful." > “Urn—that’s bad—ye*, aud unfair, too. . Do you suppose if 1 should go there and ; have a talk with your people—look here— do v ou think you could run a brewery ?” “I have never tried, but I think l could > do it alter I got a little familiarity with the ^ I business.” I The German wa.-. »Ueut for -ome time.— !
