Tlie Grave of Gen. Lrc. A correspondent describing tho Com uieueement exercises at AVus-hingtou-Lee College, Lexington, Virginia, thus speaks of the tomb of Gen. Lee: '-Hundreds of people visited on yes terday, the tomb of Lee, which is in tho basemeut of Lee Chapel. The neat iu a r L Ia Iax,. LkkguViitaJhA.

But we had opportunity, on yesterday, cf judg ing what tho tomb would be when the design of the Memorial Association is carried out. Valentine, the gifted young sculptor, has placed near the tomb hii model in plaster of the sarcophagus which the Lee Memorial Association pro pose to place over his grave. "It represents General Lee a? asleep in his nightly bivouac beneath tho stars, his military cloak around him, and one hand lightly resting upon the sword which lies at his side. The faco is copi ed from the bust which Valentine made, just a few moDth9 before General Lea's death; aud which has been pronounced by family and friends a speaking like ness. The posture is easy and graceful, just the position in which the old hero used to sleep. The couch on which it rests is inscribed with the coat of arms of Virginia, aud other appropriate devi ces." t. HICKMAN MARBLE WORKS 'iIICKMAN, KY. ; PEALEE IX Italian and American Marble.

Hall's Journal of Health says: "'The majority of people pay little attention to the cleanliness of the feet, aud yet a square inch of tho sole of the foot de mands cleanliness, perfect cleanliness, more than any equaro foot of the sur face of the body, as far as health is con cerned, because the "pores" are much larger than anywhere else; po largo in deed, that they have been called "sluices" for carrying away the impurities of the system. Hence the bottom of the feet should be washed and well rubbed every day. ". Valuable Invention. An instrument has been invented that marks "the ebb of time," showing how many minutes there arc prior to any event. If placed in the ptoffiee. it reads "Mails open in thirty minutes;" and a minute later it reads "in twenty nine minutes," then iu twenty eight, and so on. At a railway station it reads "this train leaves in ten minutes," then eight, etc., and when the index reaches 0 the traiu 6tartg. Thus any passenger, on entering a Elation, knows just how much time he baa for getting tickets, cheeks, a newspaper and a eeat, without consulting a watch or clock to ascertaiu the hour of day. The Senatorial Race. The Senatorial canvass between Coll Henry S. Ilala and Capt. Wm. C. Clark is creatiug considerable excitement in the three counties. Iu Fulton county, the Hickman Courier has come out boldly in favor of the election of Capt. Clark, and in Hickmau county, the Co lumbus Dispatch favors the clectiou of Col. Hale. As both of these gentlemen hail from the county of Graves, and. are recogniz ed as democrats,, we desired to remain neutral between them, and hoped and believed the other papers in tho district would do the fame, but as Col. Hale ad vocates positions opposite to those we Lave.advacced through these columns and contrary to every democratic newspa per iu the State, and contrary to what we believe is the feeling of tho democratic party in Graves aud the State at large, we have to oppose his electiou, and will hereafter advocate the cluirus of Dill Clar, who is iu perfect harmony vfith us, ul who occupies the same political opl: :Bds as Gov. Leslie aud John G. Cari, detnocratic candidates for Gov cjiulfoi" Kentucky. - Ja opposing the election of Col. Hale it is with no unkind feelings toward him personally, or as a private citizen, for who could find fault with that? But it i because tho political views he advo- viates on the stutip tre not in harmony with the democratic ticket of tho State. Wesha!! deal with Col. Hale as a roli- ! ticiun asking for apolitical office, aud ill during the canvass show to the read ers of the Democrat why he should and will be defeated for the oliice of State Senator in this district. Four years ago he would have suited the place, but now ha will bo defeated by sweeping majori ties in each of the three counties. Iu advocating the electiou of Bill Clark, an humble farmer, we know he has no supe rior as a stumper and a man of learning in these counties; we know too, that we will have tho politicians and tricksters against both tho Democrat and Bill Clark, but we have an abiding confidence iu the wisdom and intelligence of THE TEOPLE, and feel that they wiil rally to Bill Clark, and help lay these faithful plotters and politicians on the shelf. Let the people see that Bill Clark is not crushed by them. A man of his fpieu did ability must be preserved to the State. Give him a fair and equal fight, and he will carry Graves by five hundred major ity over any other fuan save Col. Hale, it would be one thousaud. The jubilee has commccced. Haynes' has raised the shout, Symsouia and Houseman's join tho chorus; and Dukedom and Wiugo are getting happy, whilst Feliciana, Lynuville, Farmington, and the other precincts are coming. In this happy ju bilee, will Mayficld join in the dance? and let joy be unconfined. Mayjicld Democrat. Forrest, Hrotvnloiv and the Ku lilux. Governor Brownlow, in a card which wc publish this morning, complains that the testimony of General Forrest before the Kuklux Committee the other day ws-Oi? only in the abstract a furi'rf'o ten, bnr- fn Tnany-1 material points the very reverse of what the General swore to. The ex-Governor insists that it was on account of the operations of the Ku klux Klan that he called his militia into the field. As between the Ku klux and the militia, so far as any interest we may have in either is concerned, "honors are easy." But it is unfortunate for the ex Governor's argument, that tho facts do not sustain it, unless he takes refuge in the figurative language that the Ku klux Klan was iu existence in 1SG2 when For rest led a brigade of them at Fort 11 1 - low. That the organization of the mili tia preceeded that of the Ku-klux is one of the most familiar facts in the history of Tennessee while under Radical rule. In fact, was a clear case of cause and eilcct, the Ku klux insisting front the very outset that their operations were purely eelf-defcnsive intended to protect the people from the depredations of the militia, and not to resist the execution of the laws. Had the militia not been called out the ghost ly brotherhood would never have been heard of in Tennessee. Banner. lAFOU'tl KEVE.EE. A Good Tiling' for Informers nnd Sneak. Tlilves. The workings of the interna! revenue under Republican management are beau tifully illustrated in the following cases gathered from an exchange : It is a law that tobacco may bo put up in boxen, packages, tubs or pails, duly stamped. If a man buys a box of citrars, he is liable to arrest aud a heavy fine if he uses the empty cigar box for auy oth er purpose. If he buys a tub or a pail of tobacco, duly stamped, and after the tobacco is consumed uses the pail for other purposes, or givc3 it way, or sells it, he is liable to arrest, a heavy fine and imprisonment. Not long since, a grocery dealer in Meudota, Iiliuois, went out from his store, to leave it in charge of his little son till he should return. A man enter ed nud bought a few dozen of eggs. Looking about the little store asked be of the boy : "What can I carry them homo in? Have you a basket, or a box, or some thing to lend me?" Nothing could be found, till an old nail, from which the tobacco had been sold, turned bottom up and used for a stool or teat, was discovered. Said the man : "Here is an old pail it will do to carry them iu, and to water horses from." "All right," enid the little boy, "I guess it ain't worth much you can have it for fifteen cents." The mau paid fifteen cent3 for the old pail, put the eggs therein, and went home. Soon after the merchant was ar rested and taken to Chicago before a revenue officer, who heard the story and suffered him to go on payment of a hun dred dollars. A sueakiug informer who learned of the dist-fisal of the pail cot fifty dollars some one else had the rest. Again : Not long since a merchant in Morris town, Illinois, for a year confined to his bed with a non.healiDg abscess in his side, left his store in the care of a clerk. In the store were several boxes of cigars, on which proper stamps were affixed. By law or enactment, these old stamps, duly paid for, became worthless on a certain date, when it was the business of the merchant to purchase, affix, and cancel new stamps to these boxes. Flat on his back, where he had laid in pain for months, he knew nothing of the law, or! the duties forced upon him no more did his clerk. A sneak in the revenue service called at the store one day, looked at things generally, saw the boxes of cigars yet unsold, thirteen in number, and took them with him to Sterling, Illinois, where they were duly confiscated. The sick merchant, who had paid for proper stamps on these boxes once, was fined one hun dred dollars. Not long since, at Frceport, Illinois, a pimp of an informer from Chicago, wan dering to follow his damnable profession, entered a store and looked about for some time. . At lat Le fouud an old bottle of pepper sauce, from which the stamp and label had fallen and lay on the shelf. He bought the bottle went his way. Two days after the merchant was ar rested by an officer from Chicago, taken to that city and Cued 75 and costs half of which went to the loyal inform er when, iu fact, in intent and intension, he had wronged no one. that she need not mind anything I say, for I am nobody. There is one thing more in this beau tiful programme. I once had a man that loved me, but these blood-thirsty demons murdered him, and then took everything I had away from me; and this brute in human form got a good deal of it by be ing sealed to me for time and assuming the responsibility of taking care of me. I have had quite a number of rivals, and have managed to put up with all, until the last oue came, and now forbearance has ceased to be & virtue, aud being abused beyond endurance, I must and will leave this den of infamy, and I hope to live a few cf the last days of my life in my native land among my friends. In conclusion, dear brother, do all you can for your affectionate sister. Lucy A. Wardle. A Mermaid In FoiLved itivcr. Beer A Lire Local Sensation. We are little given to the marvelous havn't much faith in sea serpents and usually take "fish stories" cum grano salts, but the following comps to us so direct and from gentlemen of sUt h known reliability, that we unhesitatingly give it a prominent place in our columns. About 5 o'clock last Friday. Mr. J. B. Maxey, hotel keeper at Bellville, and Mr. James Neal. were fishing in Forked Deer liiver, in this county, about a mile above the M. & L. II. K., bridge and half mile below the Brownsville and Belle ville dirt road bridge, when their atten tion was directed to a very strange ob ject in the water about a hundred yards above them. It had the appearance of a human being, and these gentlemen con cluded that it was some person about . They were in a skiff and drawing in their fishing tackle they plied their oars with all haste in order to reach it in time for a rescue. The pull was directly up stream and against the curreut so they were several minutes in reaching it. As they drew nearer they discovered that it was not a human be ing, but some aquatic animal of strange form and appearance, which they have not been able to account for. It had the head, face, eyes, neck and bust of a hu man being, and seemed to be, so far as seen, as large as an ordinary man. Un being approached this queer fish Eank under water and was eaeu no more.

A Supposed Dead Lady ICcttirns to Life. On Tuesday of last week, Mrs. Nellie S.. wife ot U. Ii.

So thoy placed her in a metalic coffin and express ed her eastward. Before reaching Ro chester, however, tho lady revived from her trance, and concluded she did not want to be buried iust yet. So she rais ed such a rackot in her coffin that the express messenger was obliged to let her out. SKe passed through Chicago, on her way home, last Saturday. She re fused to telegraph to her husband to be at the depot to meet her, saying she "wished to surprise him." We- rather think she will. Chicago Journal. . A Vision of 1900. Can any one realize the exceedingly probable fact that in 1D00 only twenty nine years from now the population of the United States will Dumber To.OOO, 000 of citnensf let, says a contempo rary, Mr. Samuel F. Buggies proves that this will be the case, without making al lowance for annexations, iNorth and South, that will certainly come about, Mr. Sumner and all others to the contra ry notwithstanding. He shows the rea sons for his prophecy in figures, and al though the old saw that "figures won't lie" is tho most unvcracious of proverbs, Mr. Haggles' figures have acquired a reputation of their own and a good one at that. For the past thirty or forty years, be has been bguring about our in ternal tnd domestic commerce; and, al though he has often been accused of ro nianeiog in figures, the facts have always sustained his predictions. When, there fore, the ablest, the most experienced, and most trustworthy statistician now living tells us that wo shall have a population of 73,000,000 in 1900, tho younger part of the present generation may as well consider what awaits them in their ma turity and old age. Seventy-five millions of people in the United State implies the settlement of the entire South and West by as dense a population as that of Massachusetts. UiET of the Anc-tents. The differ ence between the diet of the ancients and that of us moderns is very strikinsr. inc rtuuient urecks and liomans used not alcoholic liquor, it being unknown to them, nor coffee, nor tea, nor chocolate, nor sugar, nor even butter, for Galen tells us that he had never seeu butter but once in Lis life. They were ignoraut of tne greater number of our tropical spices, as clove, Dutmeg, mace, ginger, Jamaica pepper, curry, pimento. They used neith er buckwheat nor French beans, nor spinach, nor sajre, tapioca, arrowroot nor the potato in its varieties ; not even the common, but a sort of marsh-grown bean ; not many of our fruits, as the orange, tamariud, nor American maize. On the contrary they ate substances which we now neglect, the mallow, the herb, oxtonsue. tho 6wcct "acorn, the lnpin. They liked the flesh of wild ses, dog?, the dormouse, the fox and the bear. From the Bellevue (Ohio) Gazette Below wo publish a letter from Mor mondom, written by Mrs. Lucy A. War die to her brother, Mr. N. Foster, of this village. About twenty-two years ago Mrs. War die started with her husband to emigrate to California. Their route lay through Salt Lake City, at which point they stop ped a few days to procure supplies and give rest to their jaded animals. The next day or two after reaching the Mor mon capital the husband of Mrs. War die was foully murdered by the saints, and his property confiscated. Mrs. W. found herself penniless aud friendless in a strange land, and so far from home that, in the condition in which the coun try then was, she could not return. She was not made aware of how her husband had met bis death until a long time after ward, and in the meantime was induced to marry a Mormon. For a time her new husband treated her with some little affection, but ere long he grew more and more matrimonially inclined, and pro ceeded to marry new wives as often as opportunity offered, and at tho present time has about fourteen. With every new comer Mrs. W.'s troubles were in creased, and the last addition has proved too much lor her endurance, and she emphatically avers that she will no longer submit to the tyranny of her tormentor, let the consequences be what they may.

My troubles have no end, but keep coming, one after another, until my cup of bitterness is running over, lho time has como when I must leave my country and my home. I can not endure it anv onger.

Mr. Neal was with me. Further up the river we saw an object, conclud ed that it was some person drowning, aud hurriedly rowed up the river to it. Went up about one hundred yards and drawing near, discovered that it was not a human, but an object with head and body simi lar to a human being. It3 face was white and fair featured, its head nearly as large as a common man's, had something black ou it but I do not know whether it was hair, moss or mud (we supcct it was a jute chignon. Ed.) We get with in 10 feet of it, it sitting still all the time, when it turned around with its back to us and went under the water. Its body was spotted like a fawn, we saw no appearance of arms. It turned around as if on a pivot and seemed to have but limited motive powers. We waited about a quarter of au hour to sec if it woul rise again, but it did not. Reporter. How was its neck ? Mr. M. It was perfectly white aud looked very lair. Ik. hat sort of eyes had it? Mr. M. It had eyes exactly like a unman being but quite black. lw. How much of it did you sec . Mr. M. e saw it about to the waist I suppose. It was as largo as my body (Mr. M. i9 a gentleman of medium size Reporter.) lv. now long did it sit where you could see it, and where was it '. Mr. M. H e saw it about 10 minutes, until we could get underway aud pull a hundred yards up stream in a skiff. It was in Forked Deer River, about a half mile below the bridge on the dirt road leading from Brownsville and about mile and a half above the Railroad bridge. Our reporter did not see Mr. Neal to get his statement, but learned that the strange being has been seen by others in the same locality for a year or two past Esq. Tom. Neal saw it two years ago. He had a gun at the time but did not shoot. We understand thata number of young gentlemen of the neighborhood are watching the waters with a view of catch ing a sight of this wonderful Mermaid of the Forked Deer. "Gentles, our tale is said."

Wesley was the only revival preacher we ever heard of that had the moral cour age to tell his hearers, "Cleanse your per sons and dwellings, else I shall never believe that you have cleansed your souls I" Wesley's directions to his preachers on this matter are models of plain speaking. So often did he repeat his favorite saying, and to such good purpose, that among his people clean liness became not only a household word but a household virtue; and to this day many Wesleyana regard the words that head our article as a saying of Holy Writ.

It rained like blaze, and waa lovely for folks that are foud of water cure. I left Troy, and in the cars I fit next to a fellow who looked to be a mixture of George Washington and a pious pirate. In fact, he looked as if he might have burst Lis baas drum at the battle of Bunker Hill, escaped to the woods, and been there living on grass and poison parsley ever since. His head would hare made a good whitewash sign. It was white as a pot cheese, and his face had more wriukles on it than three pounds of tripe. 1 always carry a little whiky in my bosom. I carry it there because the beating of my heart Btirs itnp and keeps it well mixed. I don't carry it to drink, only to bathe myseif with ioside. I drew out my Cask and pointed it at th venerable fellow. He pave a jump, and said, "Don't fhoot 1" Theu be saw what it was, aud his dignified nose curled up so you could have hang five pound of lobsters on it. Said I, "Take a snifter." Said he, "What's a snifter 7" Says I, "A horn." Then I asked him "would he wet his whistle?" He said "he hadn't any whiatlc, and if he had one he wouldn't wet it." Then I 6aid, "Darn it, will you t! rink ?" He looked as melancholy as a dead crab, and he said, "Young man, I never use it. I have not tasted a drop of that stuffsince I was a boy." Theu I perceived he was temperance. probably lived in Watertown, and had uever chewed anything stronger than watercresses, watei melons, 8nd sich like. Gently I placed my bottle of whifky back into my bosom, aud I put on a laco long enough to take tho first prize at a camp meeting as 1 said, ".My dear sir, i pity you from the bottom of my heart;" and I told him "it pained me to see an old man like him make such a buniilia tiD? confession as that." 3ir, said I, if I had anything stronger I would offer it but I never use it." If I were to throw a bunch of wet sea weed into the face of the Goddess of Liberty, I dou't think it would make as bad a looking countenance as that fellow put on while ho said : "Sir, I don't un derstand you." Then 1 said, "Fardon me, ETr, but it grieves me very much to have a dignified respectable looking old gentleman liks (ourself acknowledge to a stranger that ie has never tasted a drop of wXer einco he was a bov." Says he, "I didn t say so," says 1, "You did." Says he, "I didn't." Says I, "Y did, did, did." Then I told bim "that bottle WHrpllcJ with water;" and he Baid he jo thought it was whisky." I drew myself np as if I was getting measured for some new clothes, and I said, "Sir, you had no right to think it whisky: you had no richt to suppoao that any gcutlcmau would be guilty of carrying a bottle of whisky in his bosom." He apologized and said, "I am temper ance," and I said, "I am temperance," and to prove it I told him my great tem perance story. STRUCK BY LIGHTNING. I can never think of it without shud dering at that awful adventure in the wild jungles of Africa. It was at the close ot a hot, sultry day. I bad strayed away from my two companions, Major Bird and Captain Brush of the jiuglus en. gineer corps, and I found myself" .lone. This gave me very little uneasiness, as by the aid of my pocket compass I could easily find my way to the rendezvous ap pointed in case any of the pa. tf should get lost. I was hot and weary, and pait- . i VI. 1 ing the bushes 1 selected a place wncrc i could recline unou the soft irrass aud take a quiet nap. V I had with me a Winchester repealing rifle capable of being discharged twenty five rimes without reloading. 1 set it up against a tree and lay down. I had hardly done so aud was just about closing my eyes, when I heard a era jkliog in the- bushes, and starting up I beheld a sight . enough to freeze one's blood wi'h horror. Vithin a few yards, crouching and crawling stealthily toward uie, wusau enormous black African lion. J o fay I was frightened would be a poor way t express it. My heart almost ceased ij beat, aud my hair stood on an end. I had but a moment to decide what to do. To run was sure death, aud I seized my rifle, and taking deliberate aim I fired. The ball struck him between his cyce, bat it rolled off as if it had struck a rock. I fired again aud again, until my charges were exhausted; every ball struck him, but still he advanced. Tire flashed from bis great red eyes. He lashed Lis tail against his sides, and crouched down for spring. I shot my eyes and gave up all hope. With a roar that rings in my ears to this day, be sprang into tho air. n another instant his huge body landed on top of me, and I expected to feel Ida fangs crushing my bones, and his terrible claws tcariog my quivering De:3h. To my great surprise he lay perfectly etill, and 1 did the same until 1 felt the weight of his body was crushing the life out of me. Then I quietly rolled over, and the body of the lion fell ell from me. He was stone dead. "It was a narrow escape," said my temperance friend. "Yes," said I. "But what in thunder killed the lion !" said he. "He was struck by lightning," said I "Jersey lightning ! You see, stranger. I had a bottle of Jersey whisky in my bosom, and when that animal lit on top of me he broke that 'ere bottle, and ona whiff of that whisky was worse on him than twenty-five rifle balls, for it killed him deader than a cold mince pie." "No !" said my friend. "Yes," said I. Then he arose aud said, "Young man. that ia tough; but it must te true, be cause you said it ; and with two tear streaking down his cheeks he said, "I am proud to make your acquaintance, aud if ever you visit my town be sure and write me a week in advance, bo that lean know when to expect you, and I will leave town the day before you get there." "No!" said I. "Yes," said lie; and then ho went away and left me, and I took a litt'j whisky and bathcd myself inside with it Henpeck is the name of a postoffice in Alexandria county, 111.
