The Third Choice.
The Colbert County Banner says:
“Hon. R. H. Clarke of Mobile is being
Importuned by the supporters of the sin
gle gold standard policy to make the race
for governor. He is their third choice.”
Watterson Disgusted.
Says the Talladega News-Reporter:
“Henri Waterson is once more disgust
ed with Grover. This is about the six
teenth time, as we remember. Henri’s
words will hardly grow cold before he is
fawning at the throne again.’’
If Harmony Is Really Desired.
The Gadsden Tribune solves the ques
tion in a very few words:
“If harmony is what the democrats of
Alabama, want they will nominate Joe
Johnston for governor."
Ought to Whack Up.
That is what the Gadsden Tribune
thinks Mr. Cleveland ought to do about
his ducks:
“If Mr. Cleveland will whack up ducks
there will be some excuse for his leaving
Washington in a number of instances.”
The Intollerant Register.
Says the Marengo Democrat:
“The Mobile Register says there will
he fraud in elections in Alabama as long
as ignorance attempts to rule. Of course
the Register thinks that its own goldbug
clique has all the brains.”
Same Name Retained.
The removal of the Republican from
Jacksonville to Anniston has been com
pleted and the paper will be Issued from
this city this week and henceforth. The
name Jacksonville Republican, which
the paper has borne for the last sixty
years, will be retained.—Jacksonville
Republican.
Everybody Advertising.
Says the Colbert Banner:
“The New Decatur Advertiser is very
different from several north Alabama
papers. The Advertiser contains an ad
vertisement from every business man
in Decatur, while some of its contempo
raries have hardly a column of home
patronage.”
Time Will Soon Be Up.
The Gadsden Tribune thinks the time
for securing harmony in the party is rap
idly drawing to a close:
“Good will, peace and harmony should
at once become a leading factor in the
state politics of Alabama, or the time
will soon be upon us when the attempt
to bring about the beneficial result will
prove an utter failure.”
Governor Oates Favors Leniency.
The Monroe Journal gives the follow
ing as Governor Oates’ views on who are
entitled to vote in the party primaries:
“Governor Oates favors leniency to
wards those democrats led off from the
party by Kolb. He believes in not only
inviting them back apd treating them as
if they had never left the old ship, but
allowing them to come in and help select
the nominees.”
The Challenge Still Stands.
Says the Marengo Democrat:
“Prof. Little’s challenge has appeared
three weeks now. and yet no one seems
anxious to take up the gage. If you have
the courage of your convictions meet
him here at Linden at some appointed
time, and show the people of Marengo
why we have taken a stand for free sil
verln this campaign: show them that we
believe it to he tn their best interest to
do likewise. We have numbers of good
speakers m Marengo, and why some
one lias not accepted the challenge we
fail to understand. This opportunity
should not be neglected, so send us the

State Herald Complimented.
Says the Union Springs Herald:
“The State Herald 'did itself proud' last
Sunday and issued a twenty-page paper.
We like to note hustling in the newspa
per field, and in Alabama—it must be
said—there is room for hustling.”
Always at the Head.
We call attention to the fact that we
lead in this harmony racket. We want
credit for standing at the head of the
harmony class.—Eufaula Times.
It is now in order for the Times to claim
that it instigated Mr. Cleveland's war
message.
Democrat With a Big D.
Says the Talladega Mountain Home:
“Mr. Crisp may be right and he may
be wrong in his financial views—time
only will tell; but he is a democrat with
a big D, and the party is not strength
ened when the democratic press under
takes to cut him down.”
Not Willing to Show Up.
The Eufaula Times has got its consent
at last to make the following clear-cut
acknowledgment:
"Captain Johnston is a comely person—
so comely mentally and otherwise that
there appears to be no man willing to
show up against him.”
Some Will Recognize Him.
Editor Dugald F. McCall is publishing
the West Point (Ga.) Graphic and is mak
ing a good paper of it. Many of the older
editors in Alabama will be pleased to
know that “Dugald” is none other than
our "Frank,” who used to write such
able editorials for the Union Springs Her
ald, of which he was at one time editor
and proprietor.
Clarke Knows Where He Is at.
The Clayton Courier does not believe
that Mr. Clarke will consent to be the
goat:
"The goldltes tried Oates, and he would
not answer to the shibboleth of 'duty to
the party,’ and now they are bringing
to bear the pressure on the Hon. Dick
Clarke to sacrifice himself. The Courier
believes he knows ‘where he is at,' and
like Oates, can't be brought to the sacri
ficial altar."
That ’Possum Supper.
Says the Anniston Hot Blast:
“The “possum and tater’ supper to be
given on December 31 for the benefit of
Camp Pelham, Confederate Veterans,
will be an enormous and delicious affair.
Messrs. J. T. DeArman and W. D. Hol
combe, the special foraging committee,
are arranging for 150 'possums, fifty
bushels of ‘taters’ and twenty gallons of
’simmon and locust beer. Few will miss
it, and those who do will regret it to the
end of their days.”
Democratic Doctrine Must Not Be Advo
cated.
Our able and distinguished senators,
Morgan and Pugh, have quietly with
drawn from the state, having completed
their mission of creating division and
dissension.—Ozark Star.
If advocating true democratic doctrines
will create “division and dissension" it
would be much better for the party to
disband.—Clayton Courier.
The Courier is eminently correct. If
democracy is only a name and modern
principles consists in who shall hold the
offices It is high time to rub out and start
over again.
Just Be Patient.
The democracy has decided that Cap
tain Johnston should have the nomina
tion, and that same democracy is going
to give it to him.—Russell Register.
If this is true, we move that the party
pass a vote of thanks to the Russell Reg
ister, adjourn to 1S9S and save campaign
expenses.—Mobile Register.
Just be patient abouf' extending your
thanks. There is not a fairer journal in
Alabama than the Russell Register, and
Its past history sustains the assertion
that no paper has stood firmer for the
party. While a supporter of Captain
Johnston It opposes the free coinage of
silver at 16 to 1, but does not belong to
that rule or ruin class with the Register
and only a few others._

GOSSIP FROM BOOKLAND.
Miss Murfree, so well and favorably
known as Charles Egbert Craddock, has
written some forceful and powerful nov
els, dealing with the mountain people oj
east Tennessee. A critic has said, "If
Miss Murfree could leave Tennessee for
a while, tell us of some other land, not
make her women so spasmodic and her
men all moonshiners, her many readers
would rejoice." While this criticism has
piquancy, Miss Murfee writes in a felic
itous way of these moonshiners, using a
dialect, tu be sure, totally unfamiliar to
most of us, but evincing so much genius
and talent in the portrayal of her favor
ite locality that she has long since carved
a distinct niche in the temple of fame.
She gave us “The Prophet of the Great
Smoky Mountain,” "His Vanished Star"
and yet she has again drawn inspira
tion for another story whose scenes and
characters are from these mountain re
gions—"The Mystery of Witch-Face
Mountain." It is a quaint story and it
is a perfect marvel how Miss Murfree
can weave so much of spirituality and
beauty into the story of these uncouth
and law-breaking mountaineers. But she
writes as if she knows, and knows inti
mately, every foot of ground where her
scenes are lafd. Completely in touch with
nature, she writes in an engaging and
wondrous way of every mood and fan
tasy of this mundane sphere, and with
a diction that is rythmical and suggest
ive, as when she says: “One might hard
ly mark where the horizon line merged
the sweet solitudes of earth into the sol
itary sky. Many a day the spring loiter
ing along the shadow-flecked vistas, with
the red maple blooms overhead and vio
lets underfoot, was the only traveler to
be seen on the deserted road; and the
pensive dusk was wont to deepen Into
the serene vernal night, sweet with the
scent of the budding wild cherry and
astir with timorous, tentative rustings
as of half-fledged breezes, and illumined
only with the gentle lustre of the white
stars.”
Of such exquisite descriptions there are
many, together with a number of trite,
analytical remarks on human nature as
found in her mountain characters. She
says; "Hite’s open and candid mind
could compass no adequate motive for
concealment in all the ways of the world
but the desire to evade the revenue law',
or to practice the shifts and quirks nec
essary to the capture of wary and elusive
moonshiners." If the expectant reader
desires an intricate and well constructed
plot, with each page unfolding Incident
and adventure, he will be disappointed,
and for the several occurrences that did
happen there is no satisfactory explana
tion. Whenthe story ends one is con
sumed with an unrequited desire to
know who killed the solitary scientific
traveler, for Con Hite has proven himself
too noble and tender-hearted, and the
crafty horsethief stoutly declares, "nut
I never done sech ez that," protested
Peters. "I always stop short o’ blood
shed.” And winsome Narcissa, dreamy
and tender, we would all have loved to
know her fate.—(Houghton, Mifflin & Co.y

Admirers of Brander Matthews will
be glad to know that, although such a
busy man, he has found time to write
and publish a new work. "His Father’s
Son” bears the imprint of the present
year; in fact, “1896" is aready ushered
in upon its title page.
It is a story of New York life—plain,
every-day, commonplace life—and I pre
sume numbers of Just such tragedies are
being enacted day after day. The book
is illustrated with great fidelity to the
text by T. de Thulstrup.
Those who have read and enjoyed Mr.
Matthews' stories, and particularly his
"Story of a Story and Other Stories,"
will find the same smooth style and well
sustained interest in this new work, It
gives in a very clear and vivid way the
workings of one household in Netv York
city, our great metropolis, the vital ele
ment being the ever recurring question
pt the proper training for the youth of
our land, and especially the boys. Upon
closing the book one could not help ex
claiming, "What shall it profit a man if
he gain the whole world and lose his
ortiilt” Anri thn niif»«aHnn sinks in
the heart with emphatic force.
Ezra Pierce is an elderly man, rich, and
engaged, body and soul. In the manipula
tion of affairs on Wall street; a liberal
church member—one very strong and re
deeming feature in his favor—a passably
good husband and father in a negative
sort of way. though entirely nil when
you estimate his paternal influence over
Winslow, the only son and heir; engaged
all day long and Sunday, too, in a fanat
ical endeavor to get all the money possi
ble to be made on Wall street and to ac
complish the ruin of every opponent.
Not much is said of the mother, Mrs.
Pierce, a passive, quiet old lady, so the
reader instinctively attributes a good
deal of the lack of stamina and moral
decrepitude evinced in the vacillating
son to her quiet, weak nature. Yet. while
heredity and training are vital forces,
environment is another, and a life of
plenty of money and absolutely nothing
to do would be apt to brood failings and
sinful acts which a healthy, useful, labo
rious life for the sustenance of himself
and wife would never have developed or
allowed possible.
It has the elements of an interesting
story to the generality fo readers,
though one would not care to be amused
with the recital of the undoing and de
generacy of so fair a lad as was Winslow
Pierce in the opening pages.

The author, Prof. Brander Matthews,
was originally a New Orleans man and
is now a full-fledged professor at Colum
bia college, which most professors find a
most arduous task, entirely sufficient to
occupy their time. But Mr. Matthews is
always writing magazine articles, serials
for the weeklies, editing his magazine
matter for book publication and writing
an occasional play. “Yet,” says a recent
interviewer, "he never seems to be in nr
hurry, but always has time to stop and
talk if you happen to meet him on the
highway or at his office. He looks like
a man who keeps late hours, because he
has no color in his face, yet his eyes are
unusually clear, though he is obliged to
wear glasses, but that Is entirely for
near-sightedness. Without his glasses
he couldn’t recognize his best friend
across the table.”

nothing has brought her such universal
prominence as her caustic views of
George Eliot, recently expressed in the
St. James Gazette. Mrs. Linton knew
the great novelist, but she did not love
her, nor does slip reverence her memory,
as will be seen from the following; "It
was at John Chapman’s that T first met
George Eliot, then Marian Evans, hav
ing neither her pseudonym nor her style
and title of George Lewes' wife. I can
didly confess my shortsighted prejudices
with respect to this to-be celebrated per
son. These were her undeveloped as well
as her insurgent days. She was known
to be learned, industrious, thoughtful,
noteworthy, but she was not yet the
great genius of her age, nor a philoso
pher bracketed with Plato and Kant;
nor was her personality held to be supe
rior to the law of the land, nor was she
recognized a conventional gentlewoman.
In these days, indeed, she was emphat
ically not that; she was essentially un
derbred and provincial. * * * She held
her hands and arms kangaroo fashion;
was badly dressed; had an unwashed,
unbrushed, unkept look altogether * * *
I have never known anyone who seemed
to me so purely artificial as George El

Mr. Edgar Magness, president of the
Bank of Attalla, has written very enter
tainingly of bis tour abroad, which he
calls “Tramp Tales of Europe," a three
months' trip. There is a peculiar charm
in reading observations and experiences
gained in this way. We all have more
•or less of the adventurer in our makeup
and feel we should enjoy immensely
tramping over the smooth, inviting coun
try roads, bounded on either side as they
are with wide spreading pasture lands,
fragrant with new-mown hay, dotted
with brilliant, wild red poppies and lady
smoche, all silver white, “do paint the
meadows with delight," neatly and pic
turesquely laid off by the hawthorne
hedge that adds such a charm to the be
holder. But I observe in these tramp
tales that Mr. Magness relied very often
on the time and labor-saving apparatus—
a train. However, he covered a good
deal in foreign lands in three months—
a year is much better. The author dis
courses in a very bright, crisp energetic
way of Scotland that will ever continue
to charm the traveller; of Ayr, the birth
place of Burns, and a characteristic
Scotch town, on through the Tmssachs,
which Scott has immortalized in "The
Lady of the Lake." Many tourists take
this trip upon just arriving in Scotland.
My advice Ts to see the lowlands first

ago in the lays of Scott—Glen Freim

beds. I took a shot with my camera

While on the swift steamer on Loch Lo~

He says: “A drover, bringing his cattle to
market at Glasgow, was met by an En

pounds, sir,’ was the answer. ‘Why. in
London.’ said the Englishman, ‘you could
easily get £20!’ ‘Yes, the drover replied,
‘and if you had Loch Lomond in London,
you could sell it for 6 pence a glass.'
“Now. I heard a conundrum put by one
of a party of three gents, out on a big
frolic, I know, presumably to the other
two, but in reality for the edi
fication of the crowd, for we were
on top of a coach, 'doing' the Trossachs,
and in a driving rain at that, a good one:
but then mine was told by a wiry little
Irishman. He said: 'Why is the Queen
of England like a spell of bad weather?’
The two gents guffawed and gave it up,
while the rest of us continued to listen,
as we had been doing for an hour. ‘Be
dftuse,’ said he, ‘she has reigned fifty-sev
ern years and won’t give the son a
chance.’ ”

BUNDLING KINDLING WOOD.
A Big Industry Which Grew Up From Very
Small Beginnings in a Back Yard.
New York World.
More than twenty-five years ago, in the
back yard of an uptown house, a man
with an idea started to chop up kindling
wood and tie it into bundles of requisite
size to use in the stove. In those days
people bought loads of hickory logs in
the fall and had the professional sawyer
and splitter, who paroled the streets
with ax, ibuek and saw over his shoulder,
to reduce them to the required size.
From that man, with his back yard
and his idea, a great industry has
sprung. The business was a success
from the start. First the wood was sold
only in the poorer sections of the town,
where the slum dwellers found It very
convenient to buy the cheap little bun
dles all ready for use. They thus econo
mized minutes that could be applied to
their working day. After a time It got
to be that there was not a street where
there were not stores that kept the bun
dles, and the small coal and wood deal
ers, in the slum basements, made them
part of their stock In trade.
With the general use of the kindling
steam and improved machinery came in
to use In the cutting and bundling of the
wood. Now there are extensive estab
lishments in the city,"and the bundles
burned out in the course of a year amount
to millions. At the present day all man
ufacturers bundle their wood in the same
general way. In the early days the ends
of the little sticks were dipped in rosin;
another bundler put a small piece of
cork in the center of each bundle, while
still another had each stick saturated
with a chemical preparation. It was the
general belief that some aid must be
given to the wood, otherwise the coal
would not Ignite. But all other methods
were put aside when one bundler hit upon
the Idea of evaporating all moisture
from the wood through the agency of a
steam heated kiln.
The wood used by the bundlers of
kindling in New York is pine and hem
lock. The first comes from Virginia and
the second from the forests of Ptnnsyl
vanla. It reaches the city in the shape
of long slabs. These slabs are split into
lengths of kindling thickness. From the
splitting machine the lengths are run
along a platform to a buzz saw, where
they are cut into the lengths used in the
bundling. As they fall from the buzz
saw table the bits of wood drop directly
into a box through which runs an end
less chain elevator. By this elevator the
wood is carried far up to the top of the
building and dropped into the opening
of the kiln. Around the sides of the kiln
run close coils of steam pipes. In the
great kiln the little sticks remain from
one to four days. The loss in the kiln
treatment amounts to 10 per cent. A
cord of wood produces 1000 bundles. The
wood is now inflammable and ready for
bundling.
The last work Is done by boys, who
stand at a foot-power press. Through
openings at the bottom of the kiln the
kindling falls to the table before which
the boys stand. The bundling machine
is two half circles of iron, one of which
fits above the other, making an opening
the size of a bundle of wood. There is
a slot at the bottom of the machine, In
which the tarred twine is placed. On
top of the twine goes a label with the
manufacturer's name and then the wood
is packed In. One top of the wood falls
the upper half circle of iron, the boy
gives pressure with his foot, the wood Is
pressed firmly In a bundle, the twine Is
tied and the kindling is ready for deliv
ery. In a day a boy can tie pp 1000 bun
dles. _
