VOL. LVni. NO. 3& SWIRL OF THE CYCLONE Leaves Death and Devastation in Louisiana. Columbia State. R?CELA ND, La., Sept. 7.--A se vere cyclone struck the pretty little town of Lockport, on Bayou La Fourchre, at about 9 a. m., and left it a mass of ruins.arjd desolation. Strong winds had been raging the whole night long, accompanied . by. rain. No serious results were apprehended until the wind shift ed suddenly to the southwest and blew at a terrible rate, carrying everything in its path. The fine store of W. C. Barrios was half demolished and all goods injured; the stoieof Paul Meyer aud residence were completely de molished. The residence of Gus Abrit?t, G. J. Richards' residence and coffee houso, Oliver Rivel's barber shop, Isadore Le Blanc's residence, G. D. Barrios' large cooper shop, the Convent of the Immaculate, Conception and Peter Pullucky's fruit -shop were com pletely destroyed. A large portion of Louis Terrill's residence was destroyed. Many other buildings were badly damaged. Killed-Sister Pulcharie ; Sister Lucie; Miss Mabel Gauthreaux; . Mr. Oliver Rivet ; Barber, the ser vant of the convent ; an unknown man, with scalp torn off. Seriously wounded-Mr Camille Richard, three ribs broken, injured internally ; Mr. Edward Bar bieous, wounded in breast and head; Mr. Isadore Leblanc, - ribs fractured and was carried by cyclone from one side of the bayou to the other; Miss Nettie Ayo, .internal injuries, recovery doubt ful; Miss Alcorn of Delrebode, hip injured ;'^sters. Anasthosiee Sister Joepsh;' hips injured ; Mr. Arthur Seville, qwo fingers broken, since amputated; Mr. Gus Aibritat. Parish of Ascension, . scalp wound, face and arm injured ..Mrs. Gus Arbritat, shoulder i fractured, internally injured (the baby of Mrs. Arbritat was in her arms at the time and was carried : by the wind into the street, and escaped injury) ; Mr. George, the ; shipbuilder of Algiers, slightly : wounded; Miss Louise Forest, slightly wounded. Drs Gazzo, Knoblock, Caillout, ! and. Melancon attended the wounded. 1 The property loss in Lockport will approximate $100,000. ADDITIONAL CASUALTIES. 1 SCBIEVER, La, Sept. 7.-A strong gale has been biowing here steadily since ,latn yesterday evening, whicn at this hour (6 p, m.) has increased to a tornado. Fences and out hohses and some small dwellings have been blown 1 down and destroyed, and cane and rice considerably damaged. Mabel Gauthrieaux, little daughter of Mr H. S. Gauthrieaux of this town, was killed to-day while attending school near Lockport by the destruction of the school house by the storm. Oliver LaPuis of Thibedeaux was instantly killed this evening near Reaceland by failing timbers. From what can be learned, it is presumed that the country around Lockport and Raceland along the lower . LaFourche has suffered Beverly from to-day's storm. The wirea being down, there can consequently be very little learned until communication is restored. A Political Blunder. Charleston Sun. We are inclined to fear that Judge Simonton'8 decision send ing Constable Swan to jail without recourse to bail a false- step which will redound against the railroads. His Honor, in our opinion, clearly demonstrated that the State's officer had committed an unwar ranted trespass, but the severe sen tence he saw fit to impose for the offence as contempt of court was rather far-fetched and will be at tributed to a spirit of revenge. Already the Governor is talking of retaliation through legislative ac tio^ agai?lB?*-tho railroads, and it should not be forgotten that it is a game at which the State Adminis tration can play as well as the Federal Courts with the power of the nation behind them. The spectacle which now creates a silly giggle at the State constable incarcerated in a cell, without the alternative of bail, with common criminals, may later on be used to incense and still further solidify the element arrayed against this city and which has it in its power to still further legislate against this city's interests. Thosa who are shortsighted enough to laugh now might have occasion to mourn later. Economy Among the I armers. Colonel Duncan, the Manager of the Alliance Exchange, reports much saving to the farmer this year by their good luck in securing an efficient cotton tie at greatly reduced prices. These ties are mada out of the sound pieces cut from ties that have been already used. They are strongly joined and hold the bale as fi rmi y as the new tie. The saving is fifteen cents per bundle and will agr?gate nearly $100,000 saved to the cot ton growers in the South. A saving has also been achieved through the use of bags, very much like the burlaps, but of a coarser textnre. These bags are the outer coverings to the sugar sacks which" came with shipments from the West Indies, and when Cut "open two of them make just the proper size pieces for one bale of cotton. They are much leBS liable to tearing than the" gunny bagging and make a much neater looking bale. Colonel Duncan says ?hat they, costa cent anda half ftss per yard than the gunny, owing to the fact [solely that they have been used. . The saving to the South in this item would be about $700.009 if the supply of bales were sufficient _;to.coye^;^; ^ covering is extensively used over the South. Good For Gov Tillman! Angusta Evening New?. There is one good thing about Gov. Ben Tillman, any how. He is saraest in what he does, and ho is bending all his efforts to relieving distress on the Carolina coast. He is also trying to do all his power to renew the phosphate industries and make it easy for those who have lost so much in the storm. Here is what he sayB on the sub ject: "I will call a meeting of the State Phosphate Commission on Monday or Tuesday in this city p.ny try to do some thing to get the mining companies in running order within the next few months. We will have to bear a portion of this fearful loss. It is very certain that we will have to reduce the phosphate royal considerably, and this reduction will have to last > until the companies can get on their feet again. This will not hurt the State finances this year, but it is likely to be serious next year. This loss hat? undoubtedly been terrible on the companies." Two Old Geese. Boston Transcript. Some people who went down South and took a plantation, had a black woman in their employ who was very pious. This fact did not prevent her, one week, from stealing a couple of geese be longing to a neighbor. This crime was found out and reprobated by the mistress of- the plantation. Next Sunday the negro woman prepared to go to Church, and announced that she would not be at the usual time, because it was communion Sunday, and she was going to take communion. The mistress was astonished, and asked the woman if she thought that, in view of her recent performance, she waB in a condition to take the sacrament? The old black woman opened her eyes in astonishment, "La, mis," she exclaimed, "you tink I'se gwin? to miss my dear dear Jesus for two ol' geese?" "Till it Thunders." WASHINGTON, Sept. 6.-Editor B. M. Blackburn has arrived here and will again apply to the Presi dent for that office. The$ Colonel is taking his own medicine when he declared that the office-seekers would not turn loose 'till it thun dered. "CALLS EUCHRE GAMBLING A Chattanooga Judge Stirs Up Society People by His Cbarere. WASHINGTON, D. C., Sept. 8. Special dispatches from Chatta nooga, Tenn., say that Judge Moon in his charge to the Grand Jury yesterday created a sensation by declaring that progressive euchre is gambling. He said : "Not only is gambling carried on in regular gambling resorts, but people of high standing and re spectability gamble. They may not put down money, but they set the example for others in playing for prizes and awards. In these ^progressive euchre games these persons play for fine pictures or gold headed canes. Examples are set that are a violation of the law, and it is just as demoralizing as common gambling. The convie ? ion of one man of the higher class is better, as an example, than the conviction of only ordinary peo pie for common gambling." Society people are excited over the attitude taken by the Judge. TREASTJBER, TOO. XT. S. Officers all Favor the Repeal of the Bank Tax Law. *\VASHINGTON, ? D. C., Sept. 6.

There is every reason for speedy action, but some silver Senators want to delay a vote three or four weeks. Others favor a vote next week, aud it is probable it will be reached the latter part of next week. Repeal the Bank Tax. WASHINGTON, Sept. 6.-The as sumption is entirely a gratuitous one that the President, the Secre tary of the Treasury or the present administration is opposed to the repeal of the 10 per cent, tax on State banks. Secretary Carlisle has recently taken a great deal of interest in the subject, and given it a close examination. Tho President said recently to a Southern Congressman : "I see no reason why the 10 per cent, tax should not be repealed." Every boy should cultivate the faculty of observation. If ,he does so designedly it will not be long before he will do so uncon sciously. It is better to learn a thing by observation than by experience, especially if it is something to our detriment. I would prefer to know which is the toadstool and which is the mushroom by observation rather than by experiment, for the latter might cost me my life. There is hardly a vocation in which observation is not absolutely essential. It adds to the pro ficiency of the chemist, the naturalist, the mining expert and the frontiersman. Observation quickens experiment. It leads to inference, to deduction, to class ification, and thus theories are formulated and sciences establis hed. An observing boy will become an observing man, and as boy and man he wiU have advantages over those who have not cultiv ated the faculty. A child may know more than a philosopher about matters that may not have come under the observation of the philosopher.

Man Shoots His Wife and Her Old Lover and Them Flies. . "iii MILLEN^ Ga., Sept. 7.-:A terrible ragedy culminated here last night n the death of Elijah Burton. The end is not yet, for the woman n the case is fearfully and perhaps ataliy wounded. Sunday night last Jas. Bowden, vho, with his wife, lived at Millen; hot and fatally wounded iMrjah Burton, and also shot out his wife's ye and put a bullet in the arm of i friend of Mrs. Bowden's, nec?s litating amputation.

Bowden entered, and opening he door of his wife's bed room jegan firing in the direction of tho )ed, with the above result. Bowden fled and Burton died laBt light. _ A Pretty Incident. -A newsboy took the Sixth Wenue elevated railroad cars at 'ark Place, New York, at noon on thanksgiving day, and sliding nto one of the cars seats fell isleep. At Grand Street two roung woman got on and took eats opposite to the lad. His feet rere bare and his hat had fallen iff. Presently one young girl eaned over and placed her muff tnder the little fellow's dirty beek. An old gentleman smiled .t the act, and, without saying anything, held out a quarter with . nod toward the boy. The girl lesitated a moment and then cached for it. The next man LS silently offered a dime, a wo nan across the aisle held out ome pennies, and before she mew it, the girl, with flaming meeks, had taken money from ?very passenger in that end of the sar. She quietly slipped the imount into the sleeping lad's )Ocket, removed her muff gently rom under his head without ?ouBing him, and got off at rwenty-third Street, including all he passengers in a pretty little nclinat ion of tho head that seemed ;ull of thanks. Inconsistent Man. A man can take his fife in his band and go boldly into the trackless prairie to meet a herd of javage buffalo, or he can traverse :he horrors of an African jungle ?vithou?; a shuddor in his body, jays the Chicago Dispatch' But ie cannot enter a fancy wool mop to match a special hue ?vithout breaking into a violent perspiration and finally rushing iway without fulfilling his task. A man can suffer the amputa tion of a limb in a heroic man ier, but he cannot endure a nustard plaster on his chest with out shriking aloud for mercy. A man jan stand the depriva tion af his wealth with the calmness of a stoic, but he cannot lose his collar stud on the bed room floor without a violent out burst of temper. * A man can endure the pangs Sf hunger on a desert island with ? brave spirit, but he cannot eat his bride's first pudding without a smothered ejaculation. Amanean ymile grimly under She torturers of the rack, but he cannot tread on a tm tack with lis bare feet without a bitter aowl. ' VA man can walk forty miles a lay and arrive fresh and bright it tlie end of his journey, but he ?'annot nurse a baby half au hour without complaining that he is ltterly worn out. A man can calculate to the itterm?st farthing the cost of the Suez canal, but he cannot )stimate the price of a woman's )onnet without egregious errors. A man can possets the physical itrength of a Sampson, but he sannot help to take down the pictures for the annual spring jl?aning without feeliug com )letely exhausted with his labors. A man can beard the savage ;iger in his lair without a quiver >f his muscle, but he cannot bring in unexpected friend to dinner on i washing day without trembling n every limb. A man can suffer death at the itake with the dignity of a martyr i mt he cannot chase after his hat, n a public road ^without looking idiculous. ? A man can wait many years in >rofound silence for the public appreciation of his work, but at . domestic crisis 4ie cannot get up .nd light thc fire every day for a /eek without feeiing that he is fit or immediate canonization. A man will go through fire, and ?rater to win the girl of his heart, ?ut he will not allow her to see lim with a four day's growth on tis chin. Sounding the Alarm. The Columbia State, under the aption of "A Look B?vond," he South," our contemporary ays,, "one of two things must hap >en. The repeal of the Sherman aw must be followed by early .nd great improvement in the inancial situation making money asier here than it has been foT rears, or the State bank tax muBt >e repealed and a local currency .ennitted which will meet the real .r imagined needs of the farmers, tesponsibility for relief in one of hese two shapes will rest upon he moneyed interest of the North /hich are so solidly arrayed gainst the Sherman law. If they re wise they will pour their aoney into Southern investments nd thereby convert enemies into riends and decrease the infiunce f calamity demagague." What tlie Boy Expected. Inquiring Boy-"And have you een avalanches in the Alps?" Great Traveller-"Yes, my son." "And elephants in Asia?" "Yes." "And tigers in Africa?" "Plenty of them." "Ever see a polar bear?" "Several."
