The senatori: I situation is not in any way simpliteid by the change of front effected by l.plulists Bray and Matthews in the joint ballot of Tuesday. Hereto fore these gentlhuten have v'otedt undlevi atingly for Samuel .Muli ille. the ex presWri choice of the ap))ulists of the state for U. S. senattr.

He o:wes this to his party. first last and all the time. and his ton ready abdlication of all claims for a populist senator. and his support of a candidate who will, if elect Sed. by his one single vote in the senate. wipe oult all claims of recognition of th" populists now elected to that I,,.ly. is not. we think. acceptalle to the third party rulers.

"Did you ever see a talking dog?' queried Simon Petrie, a Itnmeiber of the Ananias club. which was hlding an informal session at the Southern. The president of the club put hiis head out of the window, saw no sign of thunderbolts, and bade Mr. Petrie proceed. "I had, when I lived in Dallas (and Colonel Bill sterritt will make affidavit to what I tell you), one of those long, woolly dogs with short legs, commonly known as a bench legged flce. I also had a par rot which I was teaching to talk. Well, sir, that dog used to watch the proceedings with so much interest that I finally conchtdtrl to try my skill on him. In less thant a mlolth I had himt taught to say 'Good miorn Ing.' He pronounced it with a slightly Frenehy necent. but quite plainly. You never saw a dog a.. proud of an aecomli.lhmeunt in your life.

The fellow sat down on the edge o the sidewalk and hiked at tite dug. which kept repeating his salutation. I went out to see what was the mat ter.

The most lofty lakes are found among the Himalaya mountains in Thibet. Their altitudes do not. how ever, seem to have been very aceu rately gauged. for different authori ties give widely different figures re garding them. According to some. Lake Manasarowar, one of the sacred lakes of Thibet, Is between 19.1oitand 20,000 feet albove the level of the sea. and if this is so it is undoubtedly the loftiest in the world. Two other Thibetan lakes, those of Chatamoo and Surakol, are said t.i IN 17,000 and 15.400 feet in altituden re spectively. For a long time it was supposed that Lake Titicaca, in Sou.h America, was the loftiest in the, world. It covers about 4,500 squart miles. is 924 feet in its greatest depth 1 and is 12.000 feet above the sea.

School Work Rteduced to an Art. A thoroughly good school lesson ir a work of art. To witness one such affords as much genuine pleasure as a perfortnance by a genius ual.i1 n musical instrument. In conducting a recitation the German school master in my opinion stands pre eminent. But even the best to schoolmasters seldom gives a les son which is in every way satis factory to himself. I have attended many lessons in Germany -and la~r ticularly in Jena, one of the world's centers of pedagogical thought which were thoroughly planned, beautiful, interesting, but which were in spite of all considered fail ures because they were weak in one or more elements. This is instruc tion converted into a fine art.-Dr. J. M. Rioe in Forum. A Clever Parrot. An aunt of mine was paying us a visit, and noticing that Polly had splashed his bath water over a win dow near which he happened to be. said in a severe tone: "Look what a mese you've made, you dirty bird. I've a good a mind to throw you out of the window," to which the culprit replied in the most contrite tone. "Poor Polly, scratch Polly." But a moment afterward, as the lady and I left the rooms together, he hissed out in the most vindictive tones im aginable, "You wretch." My aunt returned and asked him, "What-a that you said I" "Poor Polly, poor Polly," came the reply humbly and beseechingly from this mendacious bird.--Cor. 8t. Loris Globe-Democrat.

Over the mighty city, amid certain atmospheric conditions, the particles of carbon form a canopy that ob strActs the passage of heat and of chemical rays from the center of life -the sun. There is a lowering of the temperature, and animal vitality s diminished. Pure fog mist, mach - we see in the country, does not raously interfere with solar chem lal cnergy. Mist is simply condensed vapor. When it is frozen the particles form storagefor the deposition of particles of carbon or of sulphur. If the vapor is merely in condensed watery parti cles it absortb itvh hydrocarhons and the sulpherous acid produced by ia perfect combustion of bituminors, ponals. The ilues et mist is thus coan verted into the yellow black fog known to the dwellers in London. National Review. INVENTORY SALE! I, ORSCHEL & BROS.
