IS HE QUALIFIED? Silyer-Tongued Bry an Orator Turns Up Again. This Time Am a FliyMlcInn Aud Wants to Practice lu Tlii Coun ty Irregularity of II U Truteed lu-Trre Xfw Xie a. It will no doubt be remembered that ahortlv before election a silver-tongued orator, named U. Dergbell, came here to convince the Finn of this place it was their duty to Tote for Dran, fortu nately bis attempt wa not tery succew full. This ame individual baa iince started an a physician, having, we hear, offices here and at Hancock and advertis ing himself as such in the Finnish papers. Jka pome persons believed that Air. itergbell did not possess the nmssary qualiQcations to practice medicine in this State a complaint was made against him for advertising himself to the public an authorized to practice medicine contrary to the laws of this State. The law says no one shall practice unlts-t he is first registered in the ollice of the county clerk and as it was proved w hen the cafe as first called before Justice Fisher that Dergbell was not so registered, the case was adjourned for a week to allow him to procure his diploma from Chicago. At the end of the week the diploma had not arrived, and the case was again adjourned. When the case was called on the prosecuting at toruey had it adjourned until yesterday when the case was dropped, owing, as we understand it, to the fuultiness of the law. On the 7th inst. the county clerk in formed us that -Mr. Hurghell called with a diploma about four feet square and containing all the colors of the rainbow and issued by.'as we understand it, a Wisconsin electric medicul college, which, from the circular we hold, appears to issue diplomas without the students at tending many, if any, of a course of lec tures. 1'lruNMiit Invent. A numl cr of young ladies of Calumet and lied Jacket gave a leap year danc ing party at the Light (iuard Armory last evening, which was a decided social success and all the young men who were fortunate enough to be favored with in vitations report a very enjoyable dance and s iy the young ladifs who had the affuir in charge deserve any amount of credit and praise for a delightful party. It was a little late in the evening when dancing commenced, but when it was on e under wb.v the merry dancers held sway until somewhere about .'1 o'clock this morning, only stopping long enough for luncheon which the ladies serve 1 about the middle of the dance. The hall decorations were evergreens, bunting and Hags, but no uttempt was made to make the affair ilaborate in this direction, as it wat gotten up simtdy for a social good time and in this it succeed ed admirably. t Karkeet's Ideal orchestra furnished music in their usual first-class manner and James Itiney acted as prompter to the evident satihfaction of all concerned. The attendance was about sixty counles, including a few from Houghton and Lake Linden. The audience that greeted Hon. Wash ington Gardner at the Opera House last evening was more than pleased with the lecture on "The Struggle for Chattanoo ga." So much has been said about the abilities of Mr. Gardner as a lecturer and particularly on subjects with the late civil war that the audience expected something unusually fine and thev were not dissappointed. He wag introduced by Mr. W. H. Honking. The lecture was a very vivid portrayal of the campaign leading up to this important battle and the etory of the battle was told in an unusually interesting manner. Humor enough was brought in to make the whole lecture laughable and amusing. The lecture was given under the auspices of the Young Peoples' Society o! the lied Jacket Congregational church. Mr. D. U. Kidder, who has been assist ant clerk at the Tamarack for some time, resigned his position Monday to accept one as chief clerk for the Merced gold mine at Coulterville, Cal., and he and his wife left on the noon train today for their new Lome.

Cooking being an art, every race has a style of its own. Tho Malagasy, like the gentle Hindoo, knows how to pre pare his mess of rice. It is not boiled to a mash, as in England, or as our pota toes aro sometimes pulped: but, covered with a proper sufficiency of water, it is carefully treated until tho grains aro swollen fit to burst, and yet remain full, intact, soft aud rather mealy. Tho mamoo root is an easier dish to prepare. It is sometimes served bciled, as yams and sweet potatoes, and ngain as a sort of cold porridge. Native coffeo they un derstand how to make, and tho aroma is excellent. Cut tea alas, you havo to look to tho brewing of that from start to finish if you desiro a drinkablo cup. Poultry and gamo are cateD fresh, and the cooks havo a clever and withal cleanly trick of dipping tho dead ani mals in boiling water, which enables them to pluck easily and quickly. Tho preparation for trussing comes later. There is no lack of variety at a Mala gasy table; but, all tho same, yoa miss tne wneaten Hour bread, sugar and condiments, when cloyed with rice, fowls, manioo and eggs. ThostaDlo fuel is bunch grass, which when dried burna fiercely and settles in a glowing ember that gives off a deal of heat. All the cooking is douo on earthen hearths, and tho roasting, boiling and baking in big iron pots, ino pras.1 being slightlr aro matic, tho odor is as agreeable- as that of a hard wood fire London Telegraph. llljr Tobacco 1'lant llurnrdr Winston, N.

"This is the seventh time that the news of Maceo's death has been circu lated with the sembance of official au thority," said Dr. Castillo. Continuing the doctor said it had always been the cusom to report that Maceo had fallen in conflict whenever he compelled the Spanish to retreat with heavy loss xt life. If he la dead, his death will not end the contest, said Dr. Castillo, who Intimated that he looked upon the re port In the light of a Spanish "fake." feketcit of Maceo' Life. Antonio Maceo was without question the most brilliant figure of the present revolution In Cuba. He effected a landing at Certe de liarancoa on March 21. With him were Flor Crombet and a number of officers. Maceo had been a member of General Gomez's staff dur ing the ten years' war from 1SGS to 1878, and commanded large bodies of troops In the Province of Santiago dj Cuba, In whjch rrovince his family had lived and where he owned a large plantation. After the ten years' war Maceo traveled In Central America, attempted to raise a large force to invade Cuba and con test the sovereignty of Spain. In 18S6 he went to Haytl to try to get assist ance for an Invasion of Cuba but he was driven out and lived for a long time In retirement in Jamaica and after that he returned to Cuba and lived very quietly on his plantation In. the east ern province, where he was very pop ular. Driven Out of Cuba, In 1890 he was driven out of Cuba and came to New York. At the time of the present outbreak he was in Flor ida and he Joined a large expedition, which set out from Fort Llmon In March, 1803, on the steamer Adiron dack. A Spanish man-of-war pursued the steamer for eight hours, and at last the leaders were compelled to land on Fortune Island, one of the West In dies. Thence Maceo and the other lead ers made their way to Cuba. In the great raid across the Island, led by Maximo Gomez In 1803, Maceo was his chief co-adjutor, and when Captain General Campos had finally receded with his headquarters to-the city of Ha vana. Maceo led a daring raid Into the fertile Province of Plnar del Rio, where he devastated the great Vuelta Abajo tobacco district and raised the whole province In revolt against Spain. There he has been ever since with the Span ish authorities In the province practi cally overturned. One Fdltcr Kill Another. New Orleans, Dec. 10.
