h'lle Manning Farmers' Platform Demo
cratic 'lub met last Saturday afternoon as
ordered by the county executive comn
The club was called for the purpose of
selecting imanagers f -r the primary election
and to appoint one manager for each of the
-onservative clubs in this town. The
managers seh-eted for the Reform club are
Messrs. W. T. Touchaberry and W.
J. Rawlitson and a Conservative
manager and clerk. Mr. J. F. Brad
han was selected to represent the Reform
ers at the Clarendon Club and Mr. Louis
Appelt to represent them at the Manning
The meeting was very harmonious and
and the disposition among the members
was to not endorse any candidates for
the present as they preferred hearing those
who expect to he candidates before making
a -election.
The einb slhowed a disposition also to
support one Conservative. and we believe
if a rman of the Conservative faction whose
polttica! contse has not been obnoxious to
the .l,-formers. will announce himself a
can'lidlate. an'' he favors white supremacy,
t osti d and free schools, he is al
most sure to receive the almost solid sup
port of the '"Farmers' Club." which is the
lartest in the county.
The e rty Democratic executive corn
mitiitee- ordered all the Democratic clubs to
assemble on the 6th instant, whleh was last
Saturday, and neither one of the two Con
servative clubs in this town met nor did
their offiers call their resprcetive clubs to
Wrhether this is an indication that they
do not intend to recognize the authority of
the county committee we cannot say, but if
sneh is their purpose we can say it does
not riet with the approval of all the mem
l ers of tlese clubs. \Vhen the Democratic
executive conriittee met and issued in
structions for the clubs to meet on the 6th
instand the neeting was composed of seven
IRe-fornrs nird five Conservatives, and the
ords r to aissenile the Cibs was adopt-d
withou' a d is-etLtig voice.and further, the
resolution leaving the voters unhampered
that they might v ,te for whom they saw
fit was steconed by a Conservative and
adapted unanimously. Therefore, we do
not understand why the Conservative fac
tion declined to assemble their elubs I.t
S.turdary. It looks to us as if
sone 'of theim do not intend
t. ha'v'- anything to do with the pri
mary and that they are preparing them
selves to jain in with Stove.Peddler Car
son's committee to snake a tight in the
general election. Bit we are s-atisfied that
many of th.e Conservatnes will not counte
:ia, any fight in opposition to the re
gulir nominees
The primary comes off on the 30th day of
this month antd there is no time to lose:
wo would adviso the Reforners that if they
wish to support a Conservative as a urel:
her of the constitutional convention they
nmn't not lose any time in finding him:
:tnd if they :ind the man they want and he
will not become a candidate because his
faction will take no part in the primary.
then nomicata a fnii ticket of Reformers
tsrl el-et themf, and tire Conservatices
shonhl rot cmplain.
Tl.'rg is no time to lose, and we think
that those who expect to be candidates
-lool.r annou nce themselves and their po
dtion' in reg-ird to the public questions
right away. If a man is so situated that
he cannot rtttn .1 the campaign meetings to
talk to the peopl.. then let him nut his an
'oneemnt in the TIrEs and we will al
ow himu the use of orr columns to give the
1ille his views.

No Fun About Bucking Bronchos.
"Many people have an idea that to
ride a bucking broncho is the cowboy's
delight, but they're badly mistaken.
There's no fun in it. When a thor
oughbred rears and prances there's
no jar in it, and I rather like to have
one do it if I am riding. But when a
broncho bucks and jumps into the air
and comes down stiff legged, with his
feet planted together, that jars ev
ery bone in the rider's body, ospecial
ly his backbone, and is apt to make
him feel pretty sick in short order.
"My first experience with a buck
ing broncho cured me of the idea that
there was fun it. I had read that the
cowboy always locks his spurs under
the broncho's belly at such times, and
so I did the same. Well, the spurs
went through the horsehair cinch,
and the broncho kept bucking so long
as they st-aid there. I couldn't get
them out till two men came to help
"The proper thing to do wvhen a
broncho bueks is to keep your spurs
away from him, balance yourself for
ward or backward in the saddle, ac
cording t~ the way he jumps, and
grip him well between your knees.
You have to let him buck till he gets
tired of it or finds he can't get you
of."-San Francisco Bulletin.
Thte Final salute at A ppomattolX.
There occurred a curious incident
of which no mention is made in the
books which have treated of the clos
ing scenes of Appomattox. The mus
kets of the Confederates were allowed
to remain stacked on the field. The
grass caught fire in some way, and
was allowed to burn. So suddenly
had the fighting ceased on the morn
ing of the 9th that thousands of the
pieces were left loaded.
As the flames of the grass crept
along the line of stacked muskets the
guns were heated to the firing heat,
and soon there was incessant pop
ping. The balls went up into the air
almost straight until the force of the
discharge was spent and then dropped
down. To this day the field of sur
render is strewn with these bullets,
and so little has Appomattox been
visited that the balls are easily found.
This firing of the muskets by the
burning grass was the only salute
that accompas jed the surrender.
When Lee had received Grant's terms
and accepted them, the firing of 100
guns in token of victory was begun,
but Grant quickly stopped it,-St.
Loui Gobe-Demoat.
Founded by a Cardinal. Inhabited by Kin ;=
and a Revolutionary Hotbed.
A building typical of Paris is the
Palais Royal. This series of build
ings, with its theaters, restaurants,
shops, galleries and gardens. is quite
an epitome of Paris. Founded by a
cardinal, inhabited by kings and oc
cupied by republicans. it has in its
time played many parts.
The Palais Royal was destined to
be the birthplace of more than one
revolution. It was here that the great
movement of 17S9 and the minor one
of July, 1830, began. The revolution:
of July seems, in the first instanh:-.
to have been intended simply as a
protest, an act of resi:t:me agaiuts
arbitrary measures, and in particul r
against the muzzling of the pr-s to
such an extent as to render it imy,:
sible under modern conditions to pub e
lish a newspaper. *
The celebrated ordonnances ii(l
the immediate effect of thrown:t a
multitude of journeyman printr
out of work, and it was by these n. en
that in one part of the city the insur
rection was commenced. With them
the question was not a political one
in theory alone. It was a question
whether they should get the hateful
ordonnances repealed or remain with
out work-that is to say, starve.
July 2G passed off very calnly in
Paris as a whole. At the Palais
Royal, however, some young men
were seen mounting chairs, as for
merly Camille Desmoulins had done.
"They read The Moniteur aloud,"
says a witness of the scene, "ap
pealed to the people against the in
fraction of the charter and endeav
ored by violent gesticulation and in
flammatory harangues to excite in
their hearers and t':.nselves an ap
petite for agitation." The most ac
tive section of the bourgeoise went
to work on the 27th, and nothing was
left undone to stir up the people.
Three papers had submitted to the
ordonnances from conviction or from
party spirit, but The Globe, The Na
tional and The Temps, which defiant
ly continued to appear, were profuse
ly circulated.
The police order of the preceding
day forbidding their publication only
served to stimulate curiosity. Copies
were disposed of by hundreds in the
cafes, the read.ng rooms and the res
taurants. Journalists hurried fron
manufactory to manufactory at j
from shop to shop to read the article
aloud and comment upon them. In
dividuals in the dress and with the
manners and appearance of men of
fashion were seen mounting on stone
posts and holding forth as professors
of insurrection, while stwents pa
raded the streets armed with ca es.
waving their hats and crying, "Vive
la Charte !"-Old and New Paris.
A Witty Reply.
Mr. Leland tells a story of Thacke
ray in America. There :a:s a very
beautiful lady in Boston whom the
great novelist much admired and to
whom he presented two magnificent
bronzes. Having dined one eveniug
at her house, he said as they entered
the dr-awing room, " Now I suppose
that, ziccording to your American
custom, we shall all put our feet up
on the chimney piece?" "Certainly.
replied his hostess, "and as your legs
are so much longer than others, you
may put your feet on top of the look
ing glass," which was 10 feet from
the ground. Tuackeray's remark
looks rather like one of his sly iron
ical allusions to the exaggerations of
Mirs. Trollope, but Mr. Leland tells
us that he was offended at the retort.

Sympathy Vorbus Flattery.
When the heart is breaking from
an old love, there is apt to be a crevice
hrough which a new attachment en
ers and wholly heals the fracture.
Women are prone to be sentimental
and sympathetic. A man they might
ot ordinarily admirec or esteem may
arouse their profound interest by ap
pearing to be wretched- Then their
pity is in danger of becoming passion.
I anm so unhappy," fronm a man's

feminine hearts as the most ardent "I
ove you." Many persons think they
eed sympathy when all they want

Pictures of Life In Old Egypt.
Among the most interestirg of the
photographs and drawings of the
paintings andi sculptures in the rock
tombs at El Kal (or Nekheb, as it was

Egyptians 0u- B. C. and later.
There you can SO meIn m hunting and
fishing. making in , harvesting
corn, plowing and hoeing, cooking
and soon. There are representat:ons
of funerals and merrynmakings, with
dancng girls and musicians, boating
on the Nile, and so forth. At least
one pic:-e shows that. contrary to
the connnir belief, the Egyptians
had Sonic k1twledge of perspective.
These illustrations are now on view
at thle S.iety of Antiquaries and
will be published in f c imile.--Lon
