CACSB or 8CICXD*.
It La Admitted that more suicide* occur ia
thi* than ia any other country, and that
there ia a rapid increase ia their number,
especially among the better c lanes, to whom
life is evidently becoming an iaereaiing
burden There most be special cause#
among us for this special effect. What these
may be is as important as interesting to dis
cover, and we hare not far to go, if we but
look under the surface of one of the best,
yet one of the worst forms of civilization the
world has ever seen. The ruling passion of
the two ruling citiee of this country—New
York and Chicago—is money. There
money makes the man and poverty makes
the outcast Without it one had better not
been born. Character, ability, attainments
go for nothing, uuless coined by the posses
sor. or coinable by their employer into
money. "Get money, no matter how," is
rhe motto, if one would be respected here.
"Get out, no matter where." if you have no
money, if you would not be kicked out
Hence, we never find successful rascals
killing themselves. So long as they keep
what they have stolen, they are respected
and enjoy life. But it is when men have
been unable to steal or keep what they have
stolen and can neither be respected nor
enjoy life that they throw it away. These
form the great majority of suicides, rather
than those driven to despair by absolute
want or great troubles. It is the greed and
baste to be rich at the expense of all that is
worth living for that is at the bottom of
these horrible and frequent suicides—the
worship of the money god. In times of de
preesion like these the number greatly in
creases with the loss of money, without
which men have come to look upon life as
worthless and themselves as lower than
criminals in the eyes of their fellows, whose
lock of scorn or "cut" they have not the
moral courage to endure. Uence, like cow
ards, they shirk their obligations to their
friends, whom they leave behind in want to
face what they have not the manhcod to do,
since this worship of mammon has destroyed
both their manhood and self-respect their
regard for the rights of others and their love
for those whose support depends upon them
This is the chief cause of so many suicides.
and not absolute want and suffering, else the
pauper and the tramp who have nothing to
lire for, and nothing to hope, would not
•ling so tenaciously to a life of despair.
Puritanism also, with its cold, inhuman
creeds and want of human love and charity,
is directly and indirectly a potent cause of
self-destruction. Instead of lifting up and
I helping and sympathising with the erring
or unfortunate, its disciples, who call them
selves Christians, cast them out into a cold
and selfish world without the means or ave
nues open to an honest life, while they, with
the holier-than-thou Phariseeism, pray upon
the street corners and thank God they ar
not like these poor miserable sinners. It i
because this life is made so intolerable by
oar modern civilization and modern "Chris
tianity" that people of both sexes and all
conditions escape it by their own hand. It
is not because of disbelief in a future life, as
the churchmen claim, and to the spread of
materialistic and atheistic views. Rather
it is a belief that whatever the future state
may be, it is preferable to one whose life is
an endless struggle void of results worth
attainment, or whose existence has become
I intolerable by suffering and loss of all
;Ource« of happiness.
Social and matrimonial unhappiness, re
sulting from the sacrifice of love to this god
j of mammon is also another powerful, indi
rect cause of suicide. Yet the victims of
this form of human misery are oftener mur
Jered by jealousy than destroyed by their
i own hands.
i It makes the heart ache to read the record
I of man's inhumanity to his fellow man, as
seen in the new daily list of suicides, all of
! whose victims could have been saved to
[ themselves, their friends and society by a
kind word, a single friend when in misfor
tune, the charity of Christ (not Christians),
and the respect due a human being, regard
less of his circumstances or surroundings.
L'ntil these are extended to all, self-destruc
lion will continue to increase.
HKLPMKKTS OB COMPANIONS?
The daily papers are constantly sprinkled
and stained with records of quarrels between
husbands and wives. Divorcee are as fre
quent as they are destructive of every finer
iomeatic feeling and debasing to everj
higher quality of human character. And
d e cases of domestic tragedy that get into
i e papers are as units compared with the
unwritten thousands of cases that ache
t! emselves out to some canity and charity
>r into silent graves. Plainly the remedy
Tor all this is neither in multiplied divorces
»bich simply multiply the wrongs, nor in
bachelorhood and prostitution, nor in polyg
amy. jPerhapathe reform, if any is possible,
must come from a different view of the mar
riage relationship, from a renewed and
nigher conception of domestic duties, or a
-o«t of swinging back to the old Biblical
•onception of things.
No man in his senses will war against !
ncxiern education. No man who has tasted
:he advantagej of knowledge will throw i
anything, eren a hint, in the war of others !
who are seeking the same possession. Bat \
that modern education in it»purely narrow
secularism, with its ey<^on individual rights \
rather than on individual duties to a higher
law in the first instance, has invaded the (
sanctity of marriage and made a by-word of
marriage vows few people will deny who
have watched the business in communities
where the secular ideas have had most per
fect sway.
The old notion of a wife was that she was
a helpmeet. The modern termagant idea !
' is that she must be a companion or nothing. ;
i There is more difference in these two con- i
: ceptions than at first sight appears. The '
secular person says certainly there is. Your I
Bible idea was that woman should be a
drudge to her lordly husband. So the seen j
lar person get* in his abuse of the Bible and
at the same time adds to his own poor blind
ness. Plainly, the Scriptural idea of a wife. !
as a helpmeet, was that in all conceivable '
ways and especially in the temper and ton?
I of her life she should be a joy and an inspi !
ration to the husband, who, as shepherd or
warrior or mechanic or priest, was recog
nized as the main burden-bearer in the out
side world.
Because (o day there are perhaps a larger j
number of women who take up these outside
burdens and carry them that does not alter
the essential, prevailing and eternal order ot
things. Nor does it follow that women the
world over are any more fitted for compan
ions to men in the sense of sharing their ■
actual world's work than they were of old.
Mrs. Cakj.ylr wanted to be a companion to
her Thomas, and so made his life miserable
and her own. If, instead of prating about
companionship and stitching his boots for
spite, she had wrought the hidden charm of I
her nature into his weary hours Mr Fkopdk
would bare had a different story to tell, j
Gkorce L»wrs and "Gsoaux Kuot" tried {
the companionship theory and sank the beat
of both their Krea in the buatnaa*. So did
Job* Sti a*t Mill and his Mr*. Tatlob.
These &re noted example* that little people
of chromo culture are aping and ao setting
burning exam plea for a giddy world. Per
haps there is a distinction worth consider
ing in the contrast of this old Bible and th.:a
modern idea of mamage, and the young
people, at all events, may as well look at
the vision through both glasses for awhile.
STATE KLKCTIONS.
Of the elections yet to be held in this
year most of the States will hold them oa

Legislature on October 1, and Congress
men • on November 4; and Connecticut will
vote upon a Constitutional amendment
providing for biennial elections, on Monday,

elections, however, are those of Ohio and
West Virginia, on Tuesday, October 14,

ing of a Constitutional Convention. Cali
fornia will also vote on a proposed Consti
tutional Convention providing for a State
Boa*d i«f Education.
thk.chink.sk war.
The neutral powers do not seem to have
| it in mind to let their neutrality operate to
the advantage of China unless the state of
affairs is so defined, by declarations of war,
that the onlookers may have a pointer when
to scramble for a slice of the Ce^stial pie.
While the French Minister is at Shanghai
abusing his privileges by intriguing to stir
the peace party into revolution, the Chinese
of that vicinity who are of the war party are
prej>aring to blockade the Woo Sung river,
upon which Shanghai is located. They have
some hundreds of stone ladened boats ready
o sink into the channel of that stream
lirectly the French make an overture of
ittack. Now, the neutral poyers do not
ippear to bother themselves in the least with
vhat it may be the fortune of the French
'•linister to effect as an agitator, but they do
| urn a very jealous eye upon the defensive
I movements of the bedeviled Chinese, and
ntimate that they will put a stop to the ob
| Uruction of the water course. France
[ effects to scorn proposals for arbitration,
•,ndthe fiery Fkkry tells the nations of the
I >arth that the French desire no interference
I a the settlement of affairs which they feel
| perfectly able to adjust for themselves. In
the present interesting plight there seems to
j be a decided Chinese obstacle to the carry
ng out of this Gaellic boast, and if the
Chinese Government could only get its back
up with enough energy to defy the powers,
neutral and hostile, there would be found,
ve imagine, considerably more reason than
;jow appears why France should quit being
quite so fresh. There are yet some things
0 learn about China, as well as many things
China needs to learn concerning other na
| Jons, and it is barely possible that a cor
^ nered rat may prove equal to an indiscreet
i eat. Such things have been.
A NKW DEPART I'BK
it has been quite the fashion, until re
cntly, for young men. when jilted by the
iris of their choice, to shoot on sight and
n this way force the young lady to terms or
rcvent another similar occurrence. All
his is now chahged, and it has become the
hing among disappointed lovers to com- j
1 t ace a criminal action against the false
fair one for the theft of jewelry and other
articles, popularity supposed to have been
gifts. One instance is narrated in which a
young woman, who, for some reason, disap
peared two days previous to the day set for
her wedding, was followed and arrested
<qon the charge of the larceny of the ar
ticles which had been presented to her by
friends as wedding gifts.
This method is certainly to be preferred
by the young women to the sanguinary one
so lately fallen into disuse, and is not less
pleasing to the general public, since it ap
peals directlo to the comic rather than to
the tragic side of life. Upon the whole, it
must be said that the new departure is de
cidedly commendable.
Pabtt organs no longer exist as they
did in the days befo' the wa'. The Demo
erats have but one "organ" in all the great
city of New York, the World; and the Re
publicans but one, the Tribune. All of the
remaining papers are Independent. In
Philadelphia there is no "thick and thin"
Democratic paper and but one or two
organs of the Republican party. In the
?reat city of Chicago there is no Democratic
paper and there has been none since the
days ol Doruuss. In Cincinnati, the Re
publicans have an organ in the Commercial
Gazette, but the Democrats have to rey
upon the Enquirer, which is entirely too
independent at times to please those who
desire an organ to grind out tunes for them
regardless ol their merits. The days of the
party organ is past—and the party haok
mourneth.
Gk.\. Gokf reads from the Register to
prove that the Democracy of the First Dis
trict is opposed to the late Morrison bill.
The General's evidence ia good. The
Morkisox bill was a swindle and a snare
because it proposed to perpetuate all of the
iniquities of the present iniquitous tariff—
and, besides it made no provision for the re
duction of the present superfluous revenue.
We call to mild one prominent Demo
crat who gave great applause to Mr. A. W.
Cavpheu. for his declaration that he car
ried his sovereignty nuder his hat, who is
unwilling to accord to the Rkoi.^tkr the ex
ercise of any sovereignty whatever. And
this man L- not alone in his intoleraiice.
A P1G-TAILKD CBOSSd.
Ma. Hon Qua, of Canton, is said to be
richest bub in -k? world. Hii fortune -m
up among the billions. Mr. Qca'#t great
wealth must be taken with a few grains of .
rice. Botuschild is a wealthy man in a
small waj. So is Vaxdbbbilt. Mr. Borxi*
is richest of all. He owns Maud S. ^There
are a few barrels left at Greystone. The
question is What do the Golden Emperors i
do with their treasures? Eson-s, a classi
monopolist, spent $400,000 on a single stew;
a supper cost LrcrLLCs $100,000. Does
Hon Qua supply the poor with rice and the
boys with opinm ? Does he endow hospitals,
as Jay Gould does, or present his employes
with brown stone houses, like Vaxderhilt?
These constitute the rub.
A HAPPY ELOPEXENT.
Old Mr. Sickles, the father of the famous
General, is a very sensible old gentleman.
When his daughter Roma took it into her
pretty head to run off and marry William
Meade, a poor, but handsome youth, he
neither ranted nor stormed. There was no
arrest, no shadowing, no violent threats.
He called them to his arm9, blessed them
on the spot, and offered to set them up in
a grocery store. Old Mr Sickle s is a man
ef sense. His photograph should be placed
in the forthcoming Elopement College.
MUSCLE AND COLD WATER.
Sporting circles are intensely excited over
the anticipated approaching visit to these
shores of Mr. Alkkrt Greenfield, Eng
land's champion pngilist, Mr. Grekkvield
comes to see the Boston bruiser, and, if pos
sible, go him one better, He is a profes
sional beauty and the darling of the peer
age. If Mr. Scluvax is wise he will at
once enroll himself under the banner of St.
Johx. With cooling beverages and Boston
grit he is still a match for any champion
that England can produce.
INT REVIEW TliE LADIES.
It may have been a very excellent idea to
interview Mrs. Lott M. Morrill upon her
opinion of the Plumed Knight. Her opinion
is terse and forcible. Mr. Blaise is not her
^eau ideal of a President. But would it
not be well to interview all the ladies and
obtain an idea of their Presidential prefer
ences? Mrs. Morrill is only one among
many millions. All the ladies have formed
opinions and these opinions are invaluable.
As go the ladies so go the Union.'
Wool, and beer are both playing promi
nent parts in the Ohio campaign. They
bath clamor for protection. Last year these
interests fought side by side under the
Democratic bauner and carried the day,
but did not get the protection they yearned
for. This year they are arraved under op
posite captains.
THE MKItDLKK.
No woman wants to be fat, but a becom
ing plumpness is always desirable. This
condition is within the reach of all. With
a life of ease and plenty anyone can fatten
i i three mouths' time. Mutton, wheat, rye,
Sutter, corn, peas, rice, potatoes and milk
are the great fleshjproducers. Avoid acids,
fried foods and pastry. Warm blood is
also good. A quart of blood a day would
cause Sara Bernhardt herself to puff out
like a 'cotton boil in three weeks. Dio
Lewis's receipt for getting fat is simply this:
"Oo to bed early, get up late, drink water
on rising, before retiring and gallons during
the day."

The statement that the rich are growing
icht-r. while the poor are growing poorer,
! ns been repeated so often that the people
«ro begining to accept it as a fixed fact.
The truth is, however, that the rich are
jawing poorer. During the past three
v<nrB our millionaires have lost heavily in
stocks. Yakpemilt and his sons have lost
$50,000,000. Garrison's assignment placed
on? of the strongest capitalists out of the
ring. RrssELL Sage has met with tremen
dous losses. Got lu has suffered, Yillabd
las evaporated, and rach one of these na
bobs has carried with him a score of smaller
millionaires. A similar condition of things
exist in England. This is an era of won
derful changes, and the plutocrats of to-day
may be bankrupt to-morrow.

"Gath" has written a screed on the in
gratitude of American daughters. He
charges them with deceit and says they
le&ve their homes in a night to marry the
man oi their choice without giving their
parents the slightest intimation of their in
tentions. "Oath's" daughter, a pretty girl
of eighteen, has just done something of the
sort. While traveling she suddenly took a
notion to marry a Mr. Boxatkxtvbe, an
old gentleman who is on very friendly terms
with her father. As it is really a good
match and saved "Gath" the hurly-burly
and expense of a swell wedding he is not
kicking to any great extent.

The consumption of tobacco has more
than doubled in England in the past forty
years. During this period the controversy
over the virtues and the baneful effects of
the weed has been waged with unrelenting
vigor. Peoole who have studied the ques
tion hare settled down ioto the belief tuat
the us© of tobacco is hurtful to children,
and adults when indulged in immoderately.
The professors of the university of Jean,
after a thorough investigation, decided that
tobacco "in moderate quantities may be used
without injurious effects." This is doubt
less the opinion generally held by those who
know any thing about tobaeoo.

. A keen observer who has been visiting
the small towns in the middle States, says
that without manui&cturing our littlet towns
would retrograde. The mechanics build up
a place. Their manufactures are sent abroad
over the country. The small manuractur
ing town always has money to spend. It
builds good houses, takes stock in railronds,
has good streets and good schools. It is
entirely different with a town where all the
business is carried on by merchants. There
the idlers are on the increase, and labor
goes away to seek employment Down
South there is an idea that manufacturing
must necessarily be something big. This
is a mistake. If a town can't get up an
iron mill or a cotton factory, there are a
thousand other industrial enterprises to se
lect from. The smaller industries are the
safest, and there is money in tbem.

ST. CLAIRSVILLE.
Sanow Eaonpo From a Bad Fire—Attempt
to ltreak Jail—Matrimonial—Personal
St. Claiksvili.e, September 20.—[Exclu
sive.]—Considerable excitement wa3 created
ok Monday by an alarm of fire. Investiga
tion proved that the residence of Mrs. Bone
ley,in the part of town known as GreasyHill,
was apparently all ablaze. Our citizens re
Fponded cicely with buckets and ladders
and succeeded ia si>on subduing the flames,
but not until about one-fourth of the roof
hsd been burned away. It was quite fortu
nr.t3 the fire was discoved in time, as the
wind was blowing almost a gale at the time
and would have swept away the entire east
ern part of the town. St. Clairsville is
practically without protection in case of
tire, as she has no fire department whatever.
Pcssum Coss and Mcknight, two of the
prisoners confined in the county jail, devised
a scheme by which they hoped to e.Tect an
escape from that institution, but unfortu
uately for them were detected on Thurs
day by F. R. Sedgwick, deputy, and
compelled o surrender their tools
which consisted of saws made out of steel
shanks taken from their shoes. They had
just commenced operating when discovere 1.
Harry E. Alexander departed on Tuesday
for Washington and Jefferson College. Mr.
Sherman H. Doyle went to New Atnens on
Monday, where he will take a course at
Eranklin College. Mrs. C. H. Kirk is vis
iting relatives in Morristown and vicinity.
One prediction in our last local of "Still
there s more to follow," was verified on
Thursday by the marriage of Mr. Will
Baker, of Barnesville, to Miss Minnie Pow
ers, of this place. The ceremony was per
formed at noon by Dr. H. W. Baker, father
of the groom. Among those present from
Barnesville we note Mr. Charles Bradfield,
Mr. Edward Ward, Mr. B. P. Reed and
mile, Mr. Lee Cuncard and wife, Mr." Nan"
Reed, and Misses Ada Baker, Emma and
Call* Hillea. The wedded pair left on Fri
day for their fature home in Barnesville.
The best wishes of this community go with
them. Frank J. Locgdon, the popular in
surance agent of Wheeling, was in town
Friday. Daniel Peck, Esq , one of Wheel
ing's oldest residents, moved here on Thurs
day, and cow occupies the residence
recently purchased by him of I. M. Riley.
The political event of the week, was the
speech of Gen. A. J. Warner, on Friday
night. A large aud enthusiastic meeting
had been arranged,""but from jeome nnac
countable reason failed to materialize. The
General was not greeted as he should have 1
been in a township fo largely Democratic ai ,
I'ichland. Ibe prowwion was mad-) up}
wholly of the S. i C. juniors and the Lovds- ,
rille club, numbering in all, about 150
members, but the proceaaon «u a wry or
derly one throughout. A special train over
the Northern railroad vat run to Bridge
port on Friday evening, tfbd quite a nam
ber of our Republican citizens excurted to
hear Gen. Gibson. Miss Lilly B. Hobbs, of
the Vorristown school came down Friday
evening, and is spending Saturday and Sun
day with her parents.
WASHINGTON, PA.
Death of an Old Cltixen—Geaeral New*
Mote*.
Wasuikgto.v, Pa., September 20.—[Ex
clusive. ]—This morning at half-past five,
the oldest life long Democrat in Donegal
township (except we believe, one in the
Borounn of Clayaville, "Pap" McClelland)
Patrick Collins, died at bis residence of
General debility, his age is not positively
known, but is supposed to be about 83ye*re.
He was a man of but little education, but
was remarkable as a man of good memory
in relating events previous to the writers
knowledge. He was one of the laborers
employed in constructing the Cumberland
or National pike. He as we learn was mar
ried early in life, his wife, one son and
three daughters are still living, and to-mor
row «rith a host of grandchildren, will see
lim laid to rest. We were told by
one party that they hoped he might be
might be spared to live long enough to vote
for Jim Blaiue. We replied that we wanted
Hm to live until he was called away by the
author of his existence, but said at the same
lime if he voted for the one named it would
be because of his being over persuaded and
against his couviction.s. But Uncle Pat
is gone, and had he lived we venture to say
be would have voted for C. and U. or not
at all. The Wheeling House has changed
hands again. J. P. Lucas, late of Barnes
wile, is now the host. J. R. Bell having
rented the Depot farm will have a public
sale on the 27tn inst. of stock, farming uten
sils. and household and kitchen furniture.
The business demands at the only first-class
station between your city and Wash
ington on the B. 1 0. road have been
increased this week by the laving of a new
siding, which caused the removal of local
flatt'orms, a mucli-needed reform. The
lorkbeimer Brothers took in a large
amount of wool here this week. Messrs
List, Happ and Gibson, representatives of
leading business houses of your city, were
in town this week. They have a host of
fri( iids here. The members of G. A. K ,
Noble Post, of this place, will visit Bur
gettstown Post this month. They will go
in wagons, etc. The demand for the
Kkcister is good and all taken
readily, and we were much surprised
by being called on for a copy by a
to'ortd man of this vicinity to-day. We
could cot comply, as we had none left after
supplying out regular patrons,they being
both Democrats and Republicans. We do
not get left on the papers and are not
forced to sell at a reduced price, being the
first to engage in the news business, ot
ovi r SO years standing, the pigmies we take
no account of. Next week the exposition
of the season will take place near Potomac
P. <)., W. Va., on the 24th and 25th. Our
fr'cnds, Faris and Jones, are the officers.
A ;>ood time is expected. The political pot
will be opened here, as per bills pisted to
day on Wednesday evening next. D.J.
Mi 1 laid, of Iowa, formerly of this county,
will tell why the voters should vote for
Blaine and Logan and, 0 yes, the Blaine
■and Logan club from Valley Grove, W. V.,
and Plumed Knights from Armstrong's
Mills rre invited. Kvery one is invited.
We predict it will be an immense gathering.
BRANNON AT WELLSBURG.
Ho 1 Ucusseg State and National Issues to R
t Good Audience.
Wh.isbcrn, W. Va., September 20.—
[Exclusive.]—Hon. John Brannon, candi
date for Congress, spent Thursday in our
town and was introduced to many of our
citi/ens. Judge Brannon made a good
impression upon our people. lie addressed
a meeting at Lazearville during the evening
in a clear, logical and masterly manner.
He :poke for about two hours. A good
audience stayed to hear him, although the
nir vas rUher cool for an open air meeting.
The people who heard his speech and con
vened v. ith him here without regard to
parly spoke in compiisoptary t9rm? ?f
Jiu'ce Brannon. He showed rare ability in
his knowledge of political economy; he
handled the subject of protection to- labor
ai d capital in a way that shows his ability
tc an extent that far surpasses any tariff ex
position ever made by any of the so-called
Republican champions of tariff', who have
been before the people in this district. He
did not indulge in lofty and empty plati
tudes, but by argument and illustration
showed that the country needs protectien to
both labor and cinital. In his discussion
of Cleveland and Blaine he was fair,courteous
and gentlemanly, and said that Cleveland,
by reason of executive training and ability
is the proper man for the high olBce of Pres
ident, that a man may have a brilliant mind
as a legislator, and still be incompetent as
an executive. That the people should re
buke the past unjust administra
tion of the Republican party. The
specch was listened to with marked atten
tion and interest. The Judge said at the
close of the ppecch that he would see that
the important questions of interest to the
people should be discussed in Brooke county
before the time of election, and that they
should be informed on the subject of pro
tection to labor and industry. When he
does come back be will be sure to havo a
large and attentive audience. It is a seven
days wonder with honest people here how
the Intelligencer can have the brazen ef
frontery to attempt to belittle a man, of the
character and intelligence of Judge Bran
non. One thing sure, there are several Re
publicans of Brooke county who prefer
Brannon to Goff for Congress.

frcm this place will go Out tO day, Incur
sion trains on the B. '/$. A- C. Mrs. John
Williams, of Warnock, was in town yester
day. The trouble between the school
teachers and the Board of hdeucation has
quieted down considerably, and ia not much
talked of. The 1 loard has probably come to
the conclusion that the teachers will not
drive, and to get even with them have
quietly settled down and announced that the
articles adopted by the board have been made
rules, and that the teachers are now work
ing under them. Pretty thin way of getting
out of it, but when an able lawyer like Lo
renzo Danford speaks they know which side
of their bread is Guttered and have suffered
themselves to be driven to submission. Bav.

The next Democratic speakers announced
for this place are Hon. Samuel J. Randall
and 0. L Converse, on Friday evening, Oc
tober 3, and Governor Hoadly on Monday,
Ociobe-r <>. Politics are mixed into every
thing by some people, and then when they
are ijuestioned they avoid a direct answer
and ' bLoot off" their chin music in an alto
gether different direction. Tho turn-out of
the Democrats last night to hear General
A. J. Warner was a large and enthusi
ast one. More about it to-morrow.
Alexander Sullivan will addribs the Repub
licans in this city next Wednesday evening
The Democratic I>rum Corps has purchased
a nice uniform which adds greatly to the
looks of the drummers. We are very sorry
that ihe Democratic Government in this
city is distasteful to some of the Republi
cans, bat think now that the matter cannot
be helped, that they should make an at
tempt to swallow the disgusting morsel.
The ball to be given by the Independent
Irish J'.laine and Ix>gan Club should be well
attended.
