Washington was the gnest of President Roosevelt at dinner and spent considerable time with him afterward. It is the first time iu the history of the nation that a negro has be'eu entertained as a guest at the White House. Colored men have been received at reception and state affairs for many years, but President Roose velt is the first to give a private dinner invitation to a nagro, Dip lomaticaUy and at nil stute func? lions uo distinction is drawn ao to racfcs. Booker Ti Washitigjon was the president's privatogueat, aa much so as though he wereldiuing with him at his home in N ejv York before his election to thtr vibe .pres idency. ' it is said to have been largely at Prof. Washington's suggestion that ex Governor Jones of Alabama was appointed a ju lge on the Federal bt'iich in tlat State. It is under stood that Prof. Washington will make a number of recommenda tions for appointments in the South, but just what the' are can not be learned yet. He seems to be very iiiflufc.itial with the administration. Iloustou Post. -j . Sub treasury Package Robbed. New York, Oct. 15. W. H. Berendall, collector of customs at Buffalo, N. Y.. has been in this city recently in consulation with the snbtreasury of this city aud Secrt Service officers over the theft of $5200 from au express package containing $7000 consigned from Buffalo to the snbtreasury here. The original package was filled with $7000 in bills of the same denomination as were in it when it left Buffalo. Certain pinholes had been made iu the covering at Buf falo, aud when the package was again filled the pinholes, which had peuetrated two portions of the covering, were found to fit exactly. The package was carefully traced, and it was shown that it has not been tampered with from the time it was receipted for by the express company vtfitn it was aeiiveren at the sub-treasury. It was also prov ed that it had been receipted for in good order at the sub-treasury and, that the seals were unbroken. Af ter expert examination the secret service men are inclined to think the package was tampered with af ter it reached the snb-treasury and bad been receipted for.

He is accredited with being one of the men who beheaded the'Green faction at the National Republican convention in Philadelphia and was a staunch supporter of the Hawlev contingent. One of Wellington's Officers On good authority soldiers like best to be officered by gentlemen, but they have their choice of the type. Of the right kind was Gen eral Crawford, the leader of the Light Division. An incident in his career during one of the Wellington wars shows him to have been rich iu that jus tice which commands respect from equals and loyalty from 'iuteriorsj in a wori. be kept discipline itbj ont reganl to rank. His division was crossing a ford , . on oue or the Spanish marches, and , . . . an officer, to -keep his breeches, V i, t i- dry, rode, through on a soldier s back. Crawford observed the thing with disgust, and iu a minute was splashing through the wather after thenn both. "Put him down, sir!" he shout- ed. "Put him down! I desire ' you to put that officer down instant- ly!" . The soldies dropped his burden and went on. "Retnrn back, sir," Crawford I said to the omcfai'j "and go through the water like the others. I will not allow ray officers to ride upon the men's backs through the rivers ; all must take their share alike here." Youth's Companion. Bread. "I asked you for bread," ex claimed the mendicant bitterly, and yon give me hygienic bread !" My conscience smote me at this. "Poor fellow," said I, "I'll see' if I can't find you a stone !" Never, to my dying day, shall I'1 forget the look of gratitude he gave me.

Chihuahua Enterprise Kaffir Corn. Corpus Christi Eagle. B. E. Shipp brought The Eagle offit?e this week a quantity of fine sorghum aud Kaffir corn, of which he has abpnt seven acres. He says that Kaffir corn will stand the drouth betterjthan any other cereaj, aud makes most excellent .food for horses, cows and fowls of all kinds. He states that it is poor economy for our farmers aud other citizens to pay exhorbitant prices for corn, wheu Kaffir can be so easily raised, and-is really better suited as feed, thau is regular corn.
