In other words, those Republicans In
st ates where there are no negroes seem
to be predisposed to believe a scoundrel
like Mahone, in preference to believing
those men who are competent to speuk
for the Republican party In Virginia, and
who have no motive for telling anything
but the truth.
The negro being ignorant of politics,
careless about political duties, supersti
tious and emotional, is easily misled
everywhere. The practical interest
taken in his alleged welfare is confined
to those scoundrels of the Republican
party who can deceive, cajole
bribe him to cast hie
ballot blindly for Mahone, Chalmers and
other such characters as aro willing to
accept elevation from the negro's
tainted ballot. Thus, from the nature of
the case and from mutual attraction the
scoundrel and the Igriommns gravitate
together. The one from Ignorance the
other through fell designs,
belong to tho same class though there
different degrees of sconndrelism.
A glance at the field will show that the
same principle on which Mahone operates
Is In vogue here. The Daily Republican
expresses the same sentiments that the
Mahone papers set forth. The Morning
News follows In a milder, saner and
better educated, way. But the principle
of arraylngamass of purchased, ignorant
and generally debauched black Voters
against the property and intelligence of
the commonwealth is the same.
ARE THE PEOPLE DECEIVED?
It seems like a prearranged plan.
Chief Swlggett after deep thought and
apparently effective and satisfactory con
sultations and agreements resigned, L e.,
sent in a letter of resignation.
The Morning News then published a
carefully prepared article treating the
sandwich matter as if It were merely
some trivial discourtesy to Mayor Har
rington for which an apology was more
than could ba expected from a pious and
able-bodied pension drawer. It did not
refer to the capacity of the sandwiched
chief for signing affidavits that did not
conform to the facts. It did not refer to
the child-like and bland ma une h
which the chief had pocketed $48H
which, by no sort of sophistry, he could
claim as his own. He was very
careful to make a great secret of It. He
did not dare to deposit the city's cheek
and pay tbe difference to Mr. Pyle. The
moneyjwas handled In precisely the round
about and stealthy way in which all rep
rehensible, unlawful and ill-gotten
moneys are always bandied. It was not

All of these things tbe News, in the
interest of tho Republican party, passed
trippingly over to say that the great and

therefore should he restored to confidence

Wilmington always distinguishes her

Benevolent Legion of this city, which
took part in tbe monster parade of Catho

the parade. Their progress was cheered

iu the name of our state president, in
the name of the enthe membership of the

elastically in liiy owji name, our united

than those comrades from Wilmington,

I ahould feel strongly inclined to charge
that the Wilmington .councils admit only
fine looking gentlemen, into their mem
bership. The appearance of these com
rades has been universally favorably
commented upon. .<
The procession was a glorious success
and every one is astonished at its pro
portions and its brilliancy.

THE UNCLE FROM ABROAD.
The widow Mauvaire had suffered many
reverses of forUtnc. Her eldest son, who had
been her solo support, bad perished by ship
wreck and left Ins four motherless children
to her care. This misfortune hod indefinitely
jKistfioiied, if not entirely prevented, the
marriage of hor daughter, besides cutting
short the studies of her second son, who was
obliged to oorao home at once and seek for
work. But In tho midst of the anxieties of
the poor family an unexpected ray of hope
A letter was received from Bruno Mou
vaire, the widow's brother-in-law, who had
a sailor twenty years before. He
wrote from Dieppe, which was but a few
miles away, aud said that be had just come
from America with all his worldly goods, and
intended immediately to visit Orraoudviile,
his native place. At that time it was not
very unusual to see at Dieppe merchants,
whose ships crowded the harbor, and who
hod left home years before, in tho dress of
common sailors, and the sigl^t of these fortu
nate on« was a constant source of encourage
ment to the emhilious, and of hope to the
penniless. The unexpected news of their un
cle from America, therefore, gave rise to tbe
most delightful conjectures in the Mauvaire
family, tor although he did not state the ex
act amount of his fortune, it was easy to see
from the jovial tone of his letter that lie was
a man of wealth and prosperity. Once start
edj Imagination ran riot, ee-.li one adding
something to the first supposition.
"Fcrhaps it he had come before, my poor
Didier jjeod not have worked so hard," sighed
Julienne, her goddaughter, who helped with
the housework, replied quickly,"But there are
bis children to be provided for. and besides
the ricli uncle will no doubt seo to it that
Miss Clemence has a rich marriage dowry."
"That would he no use now," said tbe young
girl, shaking her head hopelessly.
"No use!" repeated Julienne. "Isitnot for
the want of n dowry that Mr. Mark's parents
have refused their cousent to his marriage
and sent him off to sen? Your uncle has but
to say the word and the young man will soon
come back again."
"Perhaps he does not want to come back,"
said Clemence in a low tone, and turned away.
But her brother, thinking less of tho man
than of the marriage, added consolingly: "If
he does not another will. You may bo sure,
sister, that a pretty girl with an undo from
America need never want for a husband.
Very likely he will bring a young friend with
him, some millionaire that ho has chosen for
"I hope ha will do nothing of the kind,"
cried Clemence in dismay. "I urn in no
hurry to get married. "
"What is most urgent is to find a good posi
tion for you, Martin," said the widow in an
anxious tone to her son.
"The count has almost promised me the
overseer's place," said the young man.
His mother answered: "But he seems to be
in no hurry. That is always the way with
the rich. They think only of their own pleas
ures, and when at last they happen to remem
ber the bit of bread promised to a fellow
creature the poor mau has starved to death. "
"Undo Bruno will not forget us," said
Martin. "The letter says, 'I shall be in Or
raondvilJe to-morrow with all my worldly
goods.' He will soon be here."
"Clemence, Is everything ready r asked the
mother, bustilH]? aliouT.
For answer her daughter opened the pantry
and showed tho well tilled shelves. Near to
a roast leg of lamb was a huge bam, flanked
by two dishes of wheat cakes ond a bowl of
sweet cream, while several jugs of cider and
a butter tart completed a bill of faro which
made the children exclaim in delight The
widow had taken from her linen chest her
best tablecloth, winch had grown yellow
through wont of use, and Julienne now hast
ened to sot tbe table, putting in the place of
honor the only silver spoon. Just then one
of the children who had been watching out
side rushed into tbe house exclaiming: "Here
be is; here he isl"
"Who is it?" asked the others:
"Uncle Bruno, of course!" answered a
cheery voice, and there appeared in the door
way an old, bearded sailor, holding in one
hand a small bundle and on his other wrist a
green parrot, while on his shoulder perched
a monkey. The younger children in affright
ran behind their grandmother's chair and
tbe grown persons gazed at the newcomer in
"You need not be afraid of my menagerie,"
said the sailor, laughing. "Come and kiss
me, childpeu, for I have traveled three thou
sand leagues to have that pleasure."
Martin Mauvaire was the first to recover
himself sufficiently to greet his relation : then
Clemence, her mother aud the eldest of the
children followed his example, but nothing
could induce the three little ones to stir.

traveler's boots were covered with mud.
"Do you mean to say that you walked all

"Indeed, I did. Do you think I could sail
across the fields?"
"I have my baggage on me."
"I beg your pardon, uncle, but we thought
from your letter that you would"

Ho made a sign to the monkey, who leaped
from his shoulder and turned three somer
saults across the room, then sat up, grinning
and scratching his bead. Hte master then
seated himself at the table and, with a glance
at the halt open panfry, declared that he was
nearly famished. There was nothing to be
done but to set before him the ham and the
cider which he ha- seen, bat Mau. SiaUTüi.-;

tiest While he was eating and drinking, the
traveler gave his relations an account of his
life at sea, and ended by declaring that he
had saved nothing, bis pay always being
■[lent ns soon as earned.
In loss than an hour the Mauvaire family
were aware that the uncle from whom they
had expected so much, possessed no other
wealth than a cheerful disposition and an ex
cellent appetite, and their disappointment
was so keen that it soon became apparent to
him. Martin grew thoughtful and silent,
Clemence sadly left the room, and their
mother, on seeing that the youngest grand
child was in terror of the monkey, insisted on
banishing it to the garden. At last the uncle
found himself alone with his nephew; and
having drained his glass, he threw himself
back in his chair, whistled softly for a minute
and then, fixing his eyes on the young man,
"It seems to me, my boy, that the wind is
blowing from the northeast in this house.
You are like icicles to your father's brother.
Hut never mind, you will oil be sorry for it."
Ho took Up a knife and bogmt cutting a
Trash slice of ham, and his bearer, druck by
his confident air wondered whether a trick
were being played; "He wants to try us,"
thought Martin, "ho never would be so jolly
and contented if be had not a cent in the
world. We have been idiots I"
Muttering some evasive reply to his uncle's
last words, he slipped out of the room and
hastened to tell his mother and trister what his
suspicions were. In a few minutes the three
returned to the sitting room with smiling
faces and profuse apologies for their absence,
the women saying that household matters
hail detained thorn.
"You have had nothing to eat, brother,*

bringing out the leg of lamb, "why has not
Julienne attended to her duty! Clemence,
where is the tart you made for your uncle?"
In another minute they were ail partaking
of a generous meal ami talking merrily.
The visitor looked admiringly at his pretty
niece and said: "You are the image of your
father, my poor George. Though I iiave
never seen you before, my dear, I have
heard a great deal about you."
"From whom?" she asked in surprise, and
at that moment a voice behind her exclaim
ing "Clemence I" mode her start up ami look
round her. It was only the parrot, who was
perching on the back of her chair.
"Clemence Mauvaire," it said solemnly.
"Who taught it her name?" asked the
Uncle Bruno answered: "Jako learned it

"Was it Mark?" cried the girl.
"That is his name, ray dear. He is coming

talked a great deal about you."
"Then he lias not forgotten me," thought
the girl, with a bright blush overspreading

sailor, "but I am afraid there will bo sad
"It is about poor Didier!" murmured the
widow, with a mother's quick perception.
"You are right," he said; "I chanced to be
on the coast of India where ho was wrecked,

"Oh, thank you, Brother!" said thomother,
"Then I learned that his watch was in the
possession of one of those miserable Lascars,
so I hunted him up and gave him all I had
for it, and here it is."
Ho put an old silver watch into her hands,
and she, recognizing it as her son's, pressed it
to her lips and sobbed softly. The others
wiped their eyes, and Uncle Bruno hurriedly
drank a gloss of cider to hide bis emotion. A
long talk followed, and although the Man
vaires found that their first Impressions had
been correct—their relative having returned
to his home absolutely as poor os he had left
it—the attentions they now bestowed on him
were dictated by pure affection instead of by
policy, as lie fore.
Martin having left the room for a minute,
came hurrying back to ask his uncle what be
would sell the monkey for.
"Sell Rochambeau?" cried the old man.
"Why, I raised him myself, and he has
always been ray companion. He loves me de
votedly, and shall never have another mas
ter. Who wants him?"
The young man replied, with a disappointed
air, that the count was passing and took such
a fancy to the funny animal that he told
Martin to find out the price and bring it up
to tbe chateau.
"Tell him it is not for sale," said tbe uncle,
lighting his pipe.
"It is very unfortunate," said Martin,
wistfully, "for he said that he wanted to see
mo about the position—and your refusal will
pût him in such a bad humor."
Tbe uncle, on hearing what this position
was, said; "Then I give you the monkey,
Munin, and you can do what you like with
him. Now go at once, before the count
changes his mind."
An hour later the young man returned
and delightedly recounted bow he hud ob
tained tlie position at a good salary.
"It is all your doing, Briino," said tho
widow; "how thankful wo are that you came
"Why, X brought you nothing but two
useless brutes," he answered, with a twinkle
in bis eye.
But Clemence put her arms about his neck,
and laying her pink cheek against bis
bronzed one whispered softly: "Dearest
uncle, you have given to each of us a price
less treasure—to my brother work, to my
mother a remembrance and to me—a hope.'

pleased, cries when she feels bad, pouts
when she is cross and eats when she it him
Not so with a boy. He would rather
go a nutting than to eat, forgets at tho fish
pond he has not bad bis dinner, often laughs
when he freie bod, and looks submissive
to an imposition practiced upon till he gets
the perpetrator alone in the middle of tbe
road and tumbles him into the dirt, till eyes
and mouth and nose are so full that the fel
low imagines that before his time he has re
turned to dust.
A boy under a calm exterior may have
twenty emotions struggling for ascendancy.
Especially do I feel for a boy who has more
fun aboard than he can master. How well 1
remember the country schoolhouse, where
wo all had to lie sedate, though one boy
would make a face enough to put tho whole
school in danger of running over with giggle.
It is an awful thing for a child not to dare to
laugh when the merriment rise« and wells up
till tbe jacket gets itight aud tbe body is a
ball of fun, and ho Knows that il ont of one
of the corners of his compressed lips a snicker
should escape all the boys would go off in ex
plosion. I remember times when I had at
school such responsibility of repression reste
mg on me and proved unfaithful.—Dr. Tal
raage iu New York Observer.
The fatter your purse 1, the better your hope
In life's race to come out a winner.
As the fatter t he turkey the more chance its

Do you realize, madame,
what sort of a Dress Goods
gathering we have?
If you want a stuff at 25e,
or 2)7]A. c, or 50c, or 75c, or
$i, or at any other price up to
the creamiest quality that
crosses the sea, we have it; and
not simply one lone, lorn piece
of it, heaps, if it is a sort that
it's wise for you to buy.
Would you rather pick from
such a stock, or from a lean
lot pinched in everything but
The Dress Goods part of
the store is at its fullest now.
You can put in an hour there
and see a new Winter stuff for
almost every clock tick. Prices
are awry like this:
40-inch silk-and-wool basket
weave Plaids, royally rich in
colorings, some with ombre
effects, 75c; the $1.25 quality.
40-inch broken Plaids, with
sombre stripe that forms the
plaid hair-lined with contrast
ing silk, 65c; the $1 quality.
40-inch Alma Envers, a fine
surah twill, hard, close surface,
75c; we never heard of it un
der $1. All street shades.
40-inch French Sebastopol,
50c; the 75c quality.
40-inch French Alma Cloth,
60c; the y 5c quality.
40-inch all-wool Cashmere,
50c; best qualities, weight and
colors we know of at the price.
And yet hundreds for more
money or less, and each one as
well worth your thought.
Remnants of course,
slow stuffs and the ends are
weeded from the general stock
every day and hustled to
counter by themselves. An
cestral pride counts for nothing
there. The richest stuffs and
the meanest we have are alike
marked what they'll fetch.
One at random—Camel Hair
Novelty, brown, garnet, dahlia,
olive, $1 ; the price has been $3.
