U. 44 Vice, my lords, is not properly to be taxed, but to be suppressed. Luxury, my lords, may very pro perly be taxed. But the use of those things which are eimply hurt ful hurtful in their nature apd in every degree is to be prohibited." Lokd Chesterfield, 1743. The unpopularity of saloon keepers is increasing. The famous manifesto of Bishop Watterson against them has been followed by a resolution of the Knights of Pythias, that 4 no saloon-keeper, bar-tender or professional gambler shall be eligible to membership in this order.' Let the good work go on until drunkard-makers shall everywhere be banished from res pectable society." INFLUENCE OF WOMEN. Woman's influence in politics, says the Chicago Post, i3 no longer a matter of speculation. It was shown proved conclusively and absolutely at one of the minor conventions held recently. The woman in the case was a reporter, young and attractive, and she was present in the line of her duty. She sat at the reporters' table and worked as hard and steadily as any of her male neighbors, but, as events showed, she hr.d more in fluence than any of them. Just as matters were becoming interesting, some action was taken that did not meet with the ap proval of some of the delegates in the front row. One of them said so, and his remarks were harsh and decidedly strong. Then he glanced toward the reporters' table and saw the young lady. She wa3 appar ently very busy with her pencil and paper, but he felt uncomfort able nevertheless. He stopped talking and took his seat, while the color mounted to his face. A mo ment later he went over to the reporters' table and said : "Excuse me, but did you hear me swear ? " " Yes," she replied, quietly. Well, I didn't mean to," he ex plained. 44 1 forgot, you know, and I will you excuse me?" 44 Certainly," she answered. 44 Thank you," he said, and went back to his seat. And after that tempers were kept in check. The Qaeen's Fire Bri&ade. Queen Victoria has a great hor ror of fire and has arranged quite a brigade among her servants, so that it is at hand wherever she is in her residence. They had a very successful "false alarm" the other day at Osborne, and everyone was at his post, according to order, as if on board ship. Prince Henry, among his other useful domestic roles, i3 chief of the little brigade. The Queen has taken the greatest interest in the whole concern and frequently amuses herself by watch ing the drill. In Korea every unmarried man is considered a bov, though be should live to be 100. No matter what his age, he follows in position the young est of the married men, despite the fact, perhaps of having lived long enough to be their father. A buhel of corn is worth 50 cents, but when sold over th- bar as whisky it brings $24. BTOODBACKTOmCK; HOW EARLY TENNESSEEANS ALWAYS FACED THE FOE. Xntretlng Reminiscence Recalled by tb Approaching Centennial of Tennevsee'c AdmlMlon to the Union Tlie Home of President Jarkaon, Folk and Johnson. Juno L, 1790, Tennessee was formally declared a t-tate, and already prepara tions aro in rapid progress for a va?t centennial display and exposition at Nashville, to la-t from Sept. 1 to Nov. 15, 19C. Sheivas the third state ad mitted after the federal constitution v.as adopted, and familiar as we aro with the details of rapid growths in the new world it is hard to realize that there is a commonwealth of some 1,900,000 peo ple in an area dominated by the fiercest Indians 1 20 yrars ao and a magnificent city of 100,000 people cn the spot, where, according to Felix Grundy, the pioneers did not stand face to face when they met, but back to back, in never ceasing vigilanco against the lurking foe. "If I am asked," said Grundy in a speech in tho United States senate, "to name my first indelible impression, it would bo tho sight of my oldest brother bleeding and dying under the tomahawk and scalping knife. Another and still another brother went in tho name way. A widowed mother, robbed of her all in a night, reduced from afiluence to pov erty in a moment, toiled to rear and educate 1t last hon him who now ad- r i THE IIEI-MrTAC;E, 3KAK XARHV1L2J2. drosses you." Between 17 SO and 1794 tho Indians killed in tho area now in cluded in Nashvilkond its suburbs ono per. ii every ten days on an average. In 1787 23 were killed.

Bam Hous ton, BelL Coffeo and many more, not to mention those of our own time. Now tho stato purposes to celebrate all these as well as her wonderful achievement in material things. An organization has been completed similar to that for th6 Chicago World's fair, and tho capital of 730,000 already eccured will bo de voted to tho erection ""of buildings and preparation, of tho grounds, but this is only a small part of what will ho ex pended. The president cf tho commission is Nathaniel 'Baxter, Jr., a native of the stato and noted as president of tho Ten nessee Coal, Railroad and Iron compa ny. The first vice president is General V.

ECougressman II. Clay Evans of Chattauocga, also a Pennsylvaniau by birth, and all tho other officials are men of like landing, ex perience and energy. The women also have an organization, and tho ladies who have The Hermitage in charge ex pect to take au important part. The Hermitage, known to all Ameri cans as the home cf Andrew Jackson, is 12 miles cast of Nashville and is pre served as ho left it, save that it is well filled with mementos of tho old lrcro and other historic relics. Tho house is a square rvd brirk standing some distance from the road and reached by a broad avenue to densely shaded by heavy co ders and Cither trtx s that it seems dark even at midday. This leads to a broad and beaut if nl lawn in front cf the house.

" Belle Meade, the mcst noted stock farm in America, if not in the world, is a few milts northwest cf Nashville. It consists of 5,200 acres of splendid laud and is the property of General W. U.
