Philadelphia. March 10 —A poor quality of
ne .v cabbage broke on the mar ,et this week,
and this afternoon finds most all cleaned up at
little higher prices than cost of transportation—
sl sU®l 75 per barrel. These prices will stop
shipments, and our market will bo Imre next

A Candidate for Governor of Arkansas.
Little Rock, March 12.—C01. John G.
Fletc er decided to-night to formerly an
nounce himself in to-iuorro.Cs Gazette as a
candidate for Governor, subject to the ac
tion of the Democratic party. He was a
very strong candidate in 1884, and in fact
hid the nomination, but was fl ally beaten
by Gov. Hughes, who is a candidate for
re-election. Fletcher 'accepted trio Wheel
domina ion a few years ago and then de
clined, and it wus thought this would kill
him politically, but ms friends have pre
vailed upon him to mase the rac for the
Democratic nomination again, aud it is ex
pected t at on acc uit ot ih ; feeling ex.st
lug lx* ween the Hughes and F etcher con
stituencies that things will be red-hot from
now until the election day. „
H. Rider Haggard's new story, “A Tale of
Three Lions," was through iuadvertanee headed
“A Tale of Three Liars," iu a well-known paper.
Tuat was six weeks ago. but the editor isn't
yet through aoswering communications as to
who the other two are.

A Dear, Vivacious Girl Sees Much in
Her Well-to-do Uncle’s Fiat.
FYoin the Chicago Tribune.
“Oh, uncle,” said the dear, vivacious
girl, “I’ve got something 1 want to tell
“All right, Isabel, all right; go ahead and
tell it," and he beamed ou his neice a father
ly gaze.
“It’s about your character; t know it
just as well if i had known you it long time,
aud here tuis is the first day I ever saw
"Oh, I suppose your father —”
“No; no cue ever told me a word. I read
it in your handwriting. You know 1 have
learned to rea r character iu w riting, aud -o
i read yours aud know it perfectly. '*
“U, yes. Isn’t it nice? Yes, you seel
got a couple of your business letters to papa
down at tue oili e, uud your cua actor was
just ns cle ir to me as could be. Your down
strokes indicate great force aud decision and
jjpur capitals are large, wh.cn show lofty
imagiuutiou. Then ail the way througu
your writing I coidd de.ect gnat beuov
oieuce aud love of doing good.
"Kr —urn,” sai i tue old man us he rubbed
ms head. "Well.”
"Then your ‘lt’.-’ and VP’s,’ and ‘B's’ sho
great fancy and love of the o.aut.ful; and
me decided full stop iud.caus that you
. ave no flckleue-s aoout you, and the line
of writing inclines up slightly, .iliieu
means loft.ness ot aim and a uigli purpo e
in life.”
"Uaii! Anything more?”
“Uu, yes; *iu’s’ and ‘W’s’ readily
tell that you have a fine poetical and ur
list c leefuig, and your ‘D’s’ and 3S s’ a.eex
icily like those of the most celebrated mu
-ic.ans; then 1 should judge tu;tt you e e
endowed with reverence uud ih * lore oi
truth, aud also hud excellent judgment uuj
a weu-balanc and mind.”
"AleOoe! Tutti alif”
"No. 1 read lo.s more. You have a
stru. g love or tome and family, which
-how., iu your small letters, and ihe way
you round all your characters indica.es
much ab.lioy for organization as well as
gr. at business aptitude; the way you dot
your *iV sows liberality and desire to give
every man his due; a certain uiievenne s to
•ome loiters indicates humor and originality
combined with hearty good fellowship; and
you cross your Vs so uear like all great ora
tois and statesmen that 1 i eally wonder you
nave never entered pubuo lue aud gut into
C ngress.”
“Hoy ? Hey ? Go on!”
“Vv oil, I don’t think of much more just
now, except t hut your signature seemed to
me to vary ra tier more from tne Laxly of
your wri Ing t..au most pw,pie’s; but that I
suppose, is because you have to write it so
often. I thought I detected a little s u -
uoruutss in it, as well as a sAade of bigot y,
and S‘une indications of u litgn and quick
temper, and perhaps a l ttle that would n.-
iicute a j;. c- oi appreciation of other peo
jde’o accompiisnm ins, w itn a fair touch of
combativeuesu aud ability to g>asp new
ideas. But, then, that s nothing. O, Ido
want to show you the lovely Christmas
pre-ent j apa gave mamma,” and sue tripped
away with uu engaging sudlo.
“Isn’t a wonderful,” said Isabel’s young
man, who s i acros . tne room on the <dg
of tue s ’fa, “how Miss Isabel can read
cua. actor Irony naudwmiugi Really sur
i’i'i mg!”
“Y-a-e-s-y-a-e-s,” said the old man;
“y-n-e-s, very wonderful, remarkably sur
piisingi Tne dudgusiedest, woude. fullest
filing i ever saw !” And tue old man got
up uud glared over his spectacles after Ins
..at. “ i -a-e-s, duturned sutq rismg, I must
,ay! I hire a siimpsv-lcgg and, shallow
mi ded young man that ioo s tike you, and
pay him $8 a week to w rite ail my business
ietieis, and ad I ever do is lo sign niy name
iXJ’em! On, yes,awful wo-al l fui.”
And he went ou. the front door and near
ly sprain and h.s font in boat ding a street
c r, and ripped and swore u. der ni breath
till he scared off iso lady passengers.

AVo dnsiro to call tlm attention of our customers to the improvements that have heed
made by this company in their Cleansing Department
After many years of study, they have at last succeeded in establishing an entirely
new process of DRY CLEANSING by which La Lies’ and Gentlemen's Garments, includ
ing Party and Evening Dresses, I’iush and Velvet Wraps, Clonks, Costumes, and House
hold Goods of all kinds, such as Portieres, Lambrequins, ( urtains, Draperies and nil the
finer class of Furniture Covering, no matter how Milled, can be Cleansed quite equal to
new, without ripping or taking apart, and without injury to the fabric.
Their Cleans ng business has increased tenfold since this adoption of the process.
Goods left with us and also for DYEING will be done attho same prices as are charged
at their New York offices, without any extra charges for sen ling or returning goods.
(roods entrusted to our care will lie done in a manner unsu pass,- 1 by any concern ia
the country; and customers have the advantage of having brought to their do as tha
host work in Dyeing and Cleaning that is possible to be done. Garments that have been
east away can tie renovated, and in most cases save the outlay necessary for new material.
We ask special attention of our friends to this subject, feeling coulLlont that they
will lie great ly benetltted thereby.
As we are constantly sending goods to this establishment, there will be no delay.
