"Coming down on a Tennessee river steamer a few weeks ago," said George Wade, the traveling man, "I met for the first tiiue a real stur gazer, a man who worships the tw'inklers in tho sky as you worship your God. It is a singular religion that is practiced, tho old man told me, by himself and his family of nine children, three sons-in-law and seven grandchil dren, all living far up on the stream named for the old volunteer state. My new friend said his book of church rules was known as tho devil's prryer book, and he showed me a bundle of queer looking charts and Hvmbola which he says he has made himself. These were rudely drawn characters, representing the stars, and tho large stars were all designated as special gods. For instance, the dog star, he said, is their 'fun god.' To that star they pray for all temporal things, and when it blinks its approval of an all night caruusal at a country barn dance all's well with the dancer s soul. I must admit it's the most unusual se?t I ever struck in any of my numerous travels." ? Louisville Post. The Suffrage Question. Says a woman writer: Dr. William M. Brundage of Albany lately preached a strong sermon in favor of equal' suf frage. It was a courageous thing to do in that stronghold of the "antis, " and Dr. Bruudage addressed a portion of his discourse especially to them. He said to them in part: "Can you not see that the very same arguments that you employ today were employed by the opponents of liberty in the past, were employed against the higher education of women, against the individual ownership and control of property by women, against the admis sion of women to business and profes sional pursuits? Can you not trust the nature of things? Is it not your great fear lest the political emancipation of woman should break up the home and destroy what you consider the true wo manliness of woman, based upon a fee ble and utterly inadequate appreciation of the laws of human nature?" Xot Entirely Free. " You say, " said the city editor, "that he walked forth from the grim walls of the prison a free man. " "Yos, sir, " answered the reporter. " Weil, he didn't. His wifo was with him." ? Indianapolis Journai v DOGS KILL A.N ALLIGATOR Pack of Florida Hounds iiit Revenge ot a Hugo Saurian. Wbile Henry Savage of Fernandina, Fla. , wa9 bunting deei"on the St. Mary'p river a few days ago his pack of hounds had to cross a long bayou where the water is very shallow. At one place in a thicket of* grass they encountered an alligator, which immediately seized one of the young dogs which was not quiok enough to es cape. The dog's yelping drew out the rest of the pack to its rescue, and the big alli gator soon found himself in hot water. The dogs surrounded him in a circle, springing forward and snapping at him and trying to fceize him by the soft 6kin underneath his legs and throat, but avoid ing the flatlike beats of his big tail, which he kept thrashing to and fro, trying to hit them. He still held the form of his victim in bis mouth and tried to crawl away, but /he dying shrieks of the dog had eo anger ed the others that they sprang forward again an^ ferociously attached the big saurian, seizing him by the throat and paws. The dogs were so fierce that the alligator was thrown over on its back and then the wholo pack plunged in upon him. The light was a fierce one. Tho saurian thrashed back and forth, its tail sweeping big circles right and left. The fierce dogs plucked liugo mouthfuls of llesh from its body and strovo to bite off its legs. Another of enc dogs was seized a mo ment later as it got too near the reptile's big, oper< jaws, while a third one was hit by its rail and hurled 20 feet off into the water, its yells of pain making the others all the more ferocious. For 15 minutes the light continued. At tho end of that time tho dogs were victors, tho alligator being killed and half devoured. Four dogs were killed in the encounter, and it seemed that the rest of them could never be satisfied, as they staid for hours over the carcass of the saurian, snarling and biting at it. ? Cleveland Plain Dealer. A. Delightful Picture. A homelike picture of Mrs. Washing ton and her favorite granddaughter in given by Mrs. James Gibson, who fre quently visited her when, as the pres ident's wife, she resided in Philadel phia, then the capital of the United States. Mrs. Gibson's language is quot ed by Miss Wharton in her "Martha Washington. " Mrs. Washington was in tho habis of retiring at an early hour to her own room, unless detained by company, and there, no matter what the hour, Nellie (Miss Custis) attended her. One evening my father's carriage be ing late in coming for me, my dear young friend invited me to accompany her to grandmamma's room. There, aft er some little chat, Mrs. Washington apologized to mo for pursuing her usual preparations for the night, and Nellie entered upon her accustomed duty by reading a chapter and a psalm from the old family Bible, after which all pres ent knelt in evening prayer. Mrs. Washington's faithful maid then assisted her to disrobe and lay her head upon the pillow. Nellie then sang a verse of some sweetly soothing hymn, and then leaning down received -tht parting blessing for the night, with some emphatic remarks on her duties, improvements, etc. The effect of these judicious habits and teachings appeared in the granddaughter's .character through life.

Penitn Qrcue Pittsburg I PETROLEUM market. m i Saturday Noon, Mar. 26, 1S98. From the producing regions of Pennsylvania have come reports of wholesale destruction of derricks by ?ales which have prevailed of late in that section, and this has been supplemented by floods in nearly, all the streams, interfering greatly with development operations. Some what better success has attended the drillers of late and considerable new work is in progress, although about an average proportion of dry holes have been reported. In the Indiana field considerable activity is noted, and the producers in that state have confidence that large pools await the drill to yield up their buried wealth. Among the more important developments has been the determination by latest strikes that a pool of no mean magnitude has been tapped in Ritchie coui y, W. Va., and operations in that vi cinity have been greatly stimulated.

It is not true that "the tailor make* the gentleman," bat it is true that a gentleman cannot safely neglect the tailor's services if he wishes people in general to take him for what he is. A gentleman prominent in Canadian po litical life was somewhat too careless in this respect. This statesman was once on his way to call upon a friend in Quebec and stopped an Irishman in the street to inquire the way. "Can you tell me where Mr. Hunter lives?" he asked. "It's no use your going there," wag the unexpected reply. "But do you know where he lives?" "Faith and I do, tut it's no use go ing there. " The inquirer began to get angry. "I didn't ask your advice. I simply want to know where Mr. Hunter lives." "Oh, well, he lives down that street yonder, the first house round the cor ner, hut 1 tell you it's no U9e your go ing there, for I've just been there my self, and he's already got a man. " Air.

A LIVELY SCRIP, Justice Swan's Court the Scene of the Disturbance. DISPUTE OF ATTORNEYS Strlekllnff and fnderwond, Ended In a Hixnp-Xayor Horry Held Conrt. The Evidence in Full? Case Appealed! Last Saturday 'Squire Swau held court, trying the cause of Mrs. S. Y. Seymour vs Mrs. Mary Campbell. , C. E. Pyle and J. H. Strickling were the plaintiff's coun cil, with G. D. Smith and L M. Underwood representing the de fendant. During the cross exami nation of Mrs. Seymour, a dispute arose between Underwood and Strickling over a suggestion which Underwood said Strickling had made and which Strickling denied. After a few words Strickling called Underwood a liar, and then they mixed. Mr. Strickling re ceived two blows in the face, one of them cutting him badly above the eye and knocking him against the wall. Underwood was pushed back ward, fell over a nail keg asd Strick ling gave him one on the back of the head and they were then seper ated. It was found then that Un derwood had two bad cuts on his right wrist and was pretty badly used up. At the time the affray begun Mr. Strickling had a small pocket knile in his hand and was whittling a pine stick, and it was with this that Underwood was cut while Strickliug's right thumb was almost severed That the cutting was purely accidental is claimed by Strickling and is borne out by the testimony of witnesses who testified before Mayor Morey. It was prob ably done while Underwood was stricking at Strickling and the lat ter was attempting to ward off the blows from his face. The Star is not in the habit of giving, notriety or publicity to such unlortunate affairs but as this is an incident, one ot the chapters in the Court House trouble, it feels that it is due to both Mr. Underwood and Mr. Strickling that its readers should be fully intormed as to the facts. This is our excuse and reason for giving a ; is of the evidence in the triai. j 'ach pleaded '"not guilty" and ea n was fiued $5 00 and costs, but Mr. Underwood's fine was increa ed to $10 00 at his request in ordc r to appeal. We do not give the ev '.lence ot either par ty concerned, but Underwood claims Strickli..g cut him purpose ly, which Strict !in^ denies, and in which he seer^a to Dc sustaintd by the evidence. I.7IDKNCE. W. H \Vretzel says that he thought buckling struck the first blow, but was not sure. Strick ling did not strike as if to cut with the knife, not as witness would use knile if he wanted to cut a person. Both arose at about the same time, but Underwood was a little ahead. John Wetzel ? Heard the lie passed; Strickling called Under wood a liar. Mr. Underwood pushed Strickling I thought, but do not know which struck the first blow. Think Strickling either pushed or struck Underwood. They were about six feet apart sitting. Under wood took a step to\vard Strickling and took hold of him as if to push him; couldn't say that he saw either strike. Both went down out of my sight behind the table. B. Swan ? Pyle was between Strickling and Underwood; Under wood started to get up after the lie was passed; Strickling was fending off Underwood's blows; Underwood wejit backward; don't know which struck first; Underwood hit Strick ling and Strickling retaliated; Strickling struck Underwood be hind the table while he was down. It appeared as if both wanted to get together; don't know when cutting was done; Underwood got up first ' and stepped toward Strickling. C. E. Pyle ? Underwood said i Strickling did say it; Strickling says, '"You lie." The first blow that I saw, Underwood struck Strickling above the eye; Strickling struck Underwood while he was part down; Underwood first arose, but Strickling closely followed; both seemed willing to scrap- Un derwood made the advance and came over toward Strickling. There was no effort on the part of Strick | lick except rising to his feet; Strick ling was behind where he was sit ting, was retreating, did not ad vance till after Underwood struck Strickling; saw no effort on the part of Strickling to cut Under wood; Strickling was whittling on the other side of the street when I engaged him to help me; Strickling was in a position to cut Underwood when he pushed if he wanted to; Strickling made a move as if to sit down; he was in a position to cut Underwood seriously if he had wanted to; he must have have cut Underwood when he pushed him with his right hand; don't know certainly when Underwood was cut. Crandall ? Saw Underwood step toward Strickling; Underwood to >k hold of Strickling and shoved him a time or two. Underwood struck Strickling first, and then pushed him; Underwood got up first; Strickling stepped back and kept on going; Underwood struck Strick ling twice, and then Strickling shoved Underwood; did not see Strickling try to cut Underwood; the knife war in a position not to cut Underwood. Mrs. Seymour? Saw Undeiwood strike at Strickling twice; Under wood struck first blow; saw Strick ling push Underwood twice; looked like Strickling started the fuss by calling Underwood a liar; did not see any effort on the part of Strick ling to cut Underwood. B. A. Weruecke ? Underwood took hold of ^Strickling; Under wood struck him twice; did not see Strickling strike. It may be that Underwood was cut while Strick ling was warding off Underwoou's blows. Did not see the cutting. John Krug ? Underwood reached over, took Strickling by the arms and shook him; Strickling pushed Underwood and he struck Strick ling above the eye. Do not know when cutting took place. When Underwood was down Strickling struck at him with his fist. Kd Brown ? Underwood stepped toward Strickling and took hold of nim, shook and struck him. Did not see Strickling strike Under wood. Walter Barnes- Underwood arose to his leet and approached Strick ling. I had hold of Strickling's arm. Saw Underwood strike Strickling and knock him back toward the book case. Under w<fc)d struck the first hard lick; I had hold of Sick ling's right arm. C. D. Watson- Underwood said yesterday that he would call him, Strickling, to account.? Star. ? ? -m . - So w In Tlie Time To purify your blood with Hood's Sarsaparilla.

It will be a small one, however, as no second flood will be experienced. The flocd catching the Virginia and Queen City as it has may cause a change in their schedule.
