From the time Miss Kellogg first made i
her bow to a public audience in the Academy
of Music, New York, in 1SG1, at the age of j
19, until to-day, her career has been a euc- ;.
cessful one. At her home in Sumpter, S. C,
she early displayed a remarkable talent for '
music, being able to read the most difficult ;
passages when but 7 years old. She has
several times visited London, achieving a
constantly increasing fame. She has since ,
carefully maintained her well-earned musi- ,
cal prestige and will give a series of con- j
certs in this country during the coming i
TIo Etiquette of Corn Cribblna.
Ethel wishes to know "if she may eat j
corn from the cob, and if so, how?' We j
hasten to assure Ethel that she may. Polite '
society has recognized the fact that it is the !
proper thing to eat the corn from the cob, j
and no man now eating it cob and all is in- j
vited a second time to our best tables. The :
manner of devouring this delicious bivalve j
in its natural state varies with the strength !
and taste of the consumer. The destroyer j
may hold the cob in one hand in a perpen
dicular condition and shave the corn
off with a dinner knife. If the browser is
extremely dainty, he may prod off the corn
one grain at a time with a fork. Thus he
will preserve a high standing in society, but
will not get any corn. In court circles it is
permissible to hold the cob with one hand
and nibble with the other, care being taken
not to allow the nose and, -chin to meet on
the other side of the c,oh.' But perhaps the
only feeder who gets all the corn he wants,"
and gets it comfortably, is the epicure who
clutches the cob in both hands, one at each
end, sharpens his teeth, and gnaws away at
the cob like a rat at a flour barrel.

ti a native of 1 Columbia"" county, N. Y., and
b descended from two old New England
families. His father, - 'William DeForest
graith, who was born in Litchfield county,
Dt, In 1305, -was a grandson of Bethel
Bnaith, of .Kent, who was a grandson of
P.ev. Henry Smith, a clergyman well known
In the Connecticut yalley. His mother wa3
a daughter of Deacon Story Gott, of Spen
certown, Columbia county, who wa3 a lieu
tenant in the army during the Revolutionary
war. and was descended from Daniel Gott,
who settled in the Connecticut valley prior
to 1690. The family was of Dutch origin,
end came to America for religious freedom.
The parents of William Henry Smith emi-
. crated to Ohio and settled on the Darby
Plain, in Union county, in 1SG5, when the
subject of this sketch was about two years
old. He being of J a studious turn of mind
was given the ; advantage of a thorough
education. After graduation, and when SI
years of age, he was - employed in literary
work, and in , a year or two became the
editor of a weekly paper in Cincinnati and
of a monthly called The Casket and Review.
Subsequently he became connected with
the daily press of that city, and when the
war broke out was on the editor j staff of
The Gazette. In 18G3 ho w ; invited
by John :Brough, ; .Ohio's: &reat war
governor, to become his private secre
tary, and while holding that position
was nominated and .elected secretary of
state on the Union ticket in 18G4 by a ma
jority of about 60,000, and was re-elected in
I860. He resigned this ofHce in January,
1868, to join with others in establishing the
Cincinnati Chronicle, and on that paper be
1ns merged with' the Times, accepted the
appointment of general manager of the
Western Associated Press. This was in
JanuaryT1870. The duties and responsibili
ties of this'position have been enlarged by
the union ofv$he' Western with the New

Tho present emperor of China is Kwangsu,

affairs. Kwangsu is not regularly descended
from the royal family as the law of succes
sion orders, but was selected by the empress
dowager, whose portrait wo present, on ac
count of his youth, he being but three years
old when appointed in 1S75, thus giving her
an opportunity of retaining tho regency for
many years to come. Though her portrait
would indicate a meek and mild-mannered
lady, tehe is to a great extent the source of
the present troubles which have been brought
on China, and of it3 national weakness, which
France is taking advantage of.
