With these men insult is always followed with a blow. Buana Vista and Manassas do not permit them to swallow insult. T..is particular veteran had hired a man to repair the sidewalk in front of h s home on Marietta street. Iu some altercation tho man applied to the veteran an epithet which no man hears without feeling tlie tempera ture of his blood rise, and the veteran s l uck him. Although he is more than 80 years of age, he has the vigor of 40, and when the man who was struck picked himself up he felt as if ho had been struck by light dug.

Maxwell, deserted the con federate army and joined the Federate aud fougnt the south, (done to injure i.iin in his race for dork of the superior court), I deem it due him and all of us to make a state meat of tho facts in the case: J.

They sat shivering upon tbe platform for hours, waiting for the return ol’ the young man, but tie came not, and finally it dawned upon their simple min i* that they had boon swindled. Just beforo dark they went on into tlv* oi;> and rep rted the cate to Patrolman Smith, who wo* on duty ut the union depot. Mr. Smith carried the couple to Mayor Cooper, who furunhed them transportation to their om in Talla poosa. As thev wore getting on the train, Mrs. Moore pufled an nruige frou her pocket aud banded it to Patrolman Smith, with tho remark: “Mister, you’ve been powerful good to mo AOd tue i le limn, uu I wouter gin you supin* to remember us by.

THE MORNING NEWS: SUNDAY, DECEMBER 30, 1888. Lighthouse Whitewash. The remarkable whiteness of the light house*, beacons and keeper*’ dwellings is thus explained: The mat rial used is simply whitewash, and here is the United States government formula for raiding a wuite wash that when properly made (and applied gives a white that does not easily wash or rub off: To ten parts of the best freshly slacked lime add one part of the best hydraulic cement. Mix well with salt water and apply quite thin. Sylvester’s process for excluding moisture from external walls consists in using two washes or solutions for covering the surface of brick walls, one compoied of soap and water and one of alum and water. The proportions are three-quarteiw of a pound of soap to one gallon of water and half a pound of alum to four gallons of water. Roth substances must be perfectly dissolved in water before using. The wail* should bo perfectly clean and drv and tho tem perature of tho air should not be below 50* Fahrenheit when the compositions aro applied. The first, or soap wash, should be laid on when at boiling heat with a flat brush, taking care not to form a froth on tho brick work. This wash should rem in twenty-four hour*, so as to become dry an 1 hard beforo the second, or alum wash, is applied, which should bo done iu the same manner as the first. The tempet ament of this w ish when ap plied may be 00* or 70°, and it should aiso remain twenty-four hour* before a second coat of the soap wash i put on, and these coats are to be repeated alternately until the v\ulls are made impervious to water. The alum and soap thus combined form an insoluble compound, filling the pores of the masonry and entirely preventing the water from penetrating the walls. Four coatings w ill render bricks impenetrable. MEDICAL. THE^W^RJfIER For The Blood A POSITIVE.
