THE PEOPLE, THE COA STITIjTIO -A:vr THE IjAWS. VOL. XVI NO. OS. COLUM"RUS, MISSISSIPPI. SUNDAY MGv- -jtMiiUE FIVE CENTS. Communicated. Paeis, August 17, 18f. Dear Dispatch: A week ia Paris is simply a glimpse into heaven; or, maybe, like the old negro said -when I got my eye lashes, brows and face all pow der burned, 4 'a peep at hell." Really, it is not worth while to come here unless one has lots of time and a barrel of money. Our party broke up here on arrival from Bremen, and I have done Paris alone, except for an occasional acquaintance. Having spent a summer here in the long ago, there was nothing left to me but the shops and a good time. After a look in on the galleries of. the Louvre the grand and beautiful Madeline I took up the shops, and the millions of beau tiful things Been have simply be wildered me. The dresses already completed at the women's tailors', , the wraps, the world of . enormous , hate, with top heavy assortments of bows, flowers and feathers loaded . npon them, the fabrics for dresses, all po bright, so novel and so beauti ful, have just simply knocked me silly, I have a vague kind of mem ory of it all a kaleidoscopic vision, as it were an impression ' like one had from listening to Neely's ser mons or Lamar's grand impassioned efforts in his earlier days. All I can say is this: the ; hats are large, broad-brimmed, simply loaded with fluted light 6tuff, great forms of rib bon, flowers or feathere, sometimes all, until a hat seems like a New York summer roof garden. Another thing: while the English women wear their hair in enormous puffs, fluted, or in one. big chignon, as it were, the French. wear theirs in a tumble down fashion that is, kind of plaited and coiled behind, but very loose and about to fall down all the time, but doesn't, don't you know f Of course this description is not technical, and I hope none of your readers will endeavor to make up by it. The women here have enormous suits of bairr and so black. Liots of them have small moustaches and old ladies almost a beard. I have used my French for all it is worth, acd the sentences I have con structed would make old Ollerdorff turn over in his grave. I have had lots of fun with it, though I do not mean to convey the idea that I have had it all, for I have made many smiles for the other fellows. Good liviner here is about as dear as in England. The cheap is bad, as it is every where in the world really not worth having. Beer costs about the same as in New York, fiye cents a glass; brandy five and ten cents a glass, -wines the same, and champagnes, the best grades, $2 to $2i a bottle. Oh, but it's good, and in this climate one can keep half full all the time, perfectly oblivious of his troubles, get up the next morn ing as fresh as, a daisy and go right along. The American bar is here, as in England. In fact it has many drinks I never heard of before. For instance, "Maiden's Blush," "John Collins," 5 'Santa Cras Swizzle," "Leave it to Me" and "Heap of Comfort." The last two, it is need less to mention, have as their princi pal ingredients good old whiskey. The bars here are tended by men, and not so numerously attended as ia England, because there pretty girls mix the drinks, and the boys are always about. In fact, our party had a favorite bar in London, and she was a beauty had sense like a horse. The bars over there are pat ronized by women also. They up and order their ale or Scotch and water just. as the men do, and it is the proper thing to ask the whole party in for a drink, whether all men or mixed. Last night I went to a concert gar den called Moutin 'Rouge, one of the best of its kind in Paris. It was filled to overflowing, but the pro gramme was hardly up to a garden concert at the Casino or Koster & Bial's in New York. After the concert there was a promenade and ball. The dancing, however, was mostly by professionals I judged, and was distinguished purely for the high kicking. I leave here to-morrow for Trou ville, a watering place on the coast, where the best French horses are racing. The card for to-morrow is very line, and I am told that on Sun days they have the best racing, the largest attendance and best people. Think of it ! Racing on Sunday ! Why, I hardly escaped jail last fall for fishing on Sunday, and didn't catch anything ot - that. While here racing is at its best. Note the dif ference in Mississippi. Everything must close on Sunday,' and it's church or nothing. No shave, no drink, no fishing or hunting noth ing. ' Carry pistols, , however, get the drop on a fellow and shoot him in his tracks . Do you know that if we would obey the law in Mississippi in regard to carrying concealed weap ons as we do in regard to closing barber shops, we would ; scarcely ever infringe God's law taking our brother's life or shedding his blood? Do yon know that thousands of good people and millions of good money would come to abide and stay with us, that doesn't now, because men value their lives and happiness ? I assert that the pistol has done our State more harm than all evils com bined. I favor a rigid enforcement of the laws relative to carrying them as the best thing that can be done for the State. . - On banking holiday at London we went out to Hurst's Park to the races. Jem Mace, the ex-champion of the world, was making books. I made several bets with him and lost them all, but got into quite a little conversation with him. He said he was coming over to see ns soon... I replied that we would give him a warm welcome and a tip on a sure thing that is Corbett to whip Fitz siramons. A little handicap race was on, and not knowing what to bet on, I asked Jem, and he replied with a laugh: " Why don't you back the American?" meaning Foxhall, Keene's horse, which everybody thought had no chance. I handed him a sovereign, saying: "I wilL What are the odds?" He replied: "Seven to one, but I'll give you ten." I bet him only a crown, and as he returned the change he asked why I didn't bet the whole sovereign. The horse won in a canter. Now, what do you think I did with the winnings 2 J pounds? I paid it to a man to kick me for not betting the whole pound. . ' The longer I am here the more I love our country, and the more firm ly convinced am I that the free coin age of silver is our best policy. It is not the balance of trade that is against us, but the balance of trayel. It is that that makes ns export gold.

EniTOC DlSPATf'H.- 'There are more summer resorts within a radius of twenty miles from the New York post office than in any similar area elsewhere in the Union." So says the "Sun's Guide to New York," and I well believe it is so. Since I have" been here, nearly two months now, there have been very few hot days, and on these few I have generally-been fortunate enough to be 1 able t" get to the sea-side or some oth er cool place, -One of the most dfe igtlifit', in t!wrp''rt'T-(s and fv rr,?'M- inge, is lanhattan Baacb. An hour's ride takes one down there, and many delightful hours may be spent watch ing the handsomely dressed men and women saunter by on the parade. Far out may be seen tne dim outline of the Jereey coast, but no ob trusive headland breaks the broad ex. pinse of tumbling blue water. It is to me a never ending pleasure to watch the white sails come and go, so softly, so swiftly, that they hardly seem to belong to this earth. Behind us risea the roomy hotel with its broad verandahs always full of a mov ing mass of humanity. Here one may for a most exorbitant price, have a most excellent dinner, looking the while at the beautiful lawns and flow er beds and on out to the broad At lantic, a boundless blue expanse. From the pavilion adjoining the ve randah, sweet strains come from Sousa's military band. Toe last af ternoon I was there they played Sousa's "Liberty Belt" march aud the new "King Cotton" march written for the Atlanta imposition. Jtsotu are highly popular, "Liberty Bell" es pecially. All the while the outer part of the verandah is thronged with well dressed people, and now and again a couple leaves the prcme nade and enters the space railed off for diners wandering its whole length in search of a table, perhaps standing a half hour to wait for some one to vacate. Dinner over we go to the parade again aud nee ttie lighu ot Atlantic Highlands come out. of the darkness, while aat above up, . at -toe flaso, the lung rows of electric lights shine out, illuminating the innumera ble faces on tbe beeches and prome nade. Later we may go to Paiue's fireworks or to Brighton, to the great est feature of alt the shore, Stidl'a inimitable orchestra. The firewtuka are vo.." fi-ie and have .-splendid audi ence?.
