The memorial bronxe doors which the Astnrs w ill put in Trinity church, Xeiv York, are nearly complete. It took three years to finish them at a cost of $100,000. The World has announced that Miss Pollard will appear on the stage in Xew York City about the middle of October tinder the man agement of Nelson Roberts. The Japs and Chinese are engaged in feed ing the fish with their bodies. The Japs seem to be on the inside track and are defeating the Chinese in every engagement. Senator George, of Mississippi, sometimes appears in the Semite chamber in his shirt sleeves. When it is hot ho docs not see the sense of loading up with clothes. Afteroll is said about the Alabama cleclion, it seems that t lie real cause of f apt. Knlb's defeat was, in the picturesque language of Senator Quay, a lack of votes.

A Philadelphia writer wants women tn wear costumes indicating whether they are married or single. The bloomer costume goes far to ward solving this difficulty it indicates plain ly that ils w earer has no husband and no hope of one. What Capt.

In a few words, 1 am built on the "hitched" plan, more bone than meat, but with hoopskii ts in my pants, and heavy wadding in my coat I get there as a well made man. 1 have an unde cided cast of features, my eyes are large and protruding one has "catch me If you can'' wink while the other has a vacant stare : color slightly mixed. My head is as hair less as billiard ball, my nose is in clined to turn heavenward; my cars are descendants of the donkey's ; my mouth is open-faced, lips rather thick complexion saffron-tinted at present (I traveled several years in a side show as the spotted man from Siberia, but after taking Smith's bilcd beans the spots nil ran into one another, and I lost my position). My teeth look like headstones in a country graveyard my hands arc large and have bristles on the back, my feet also are large and noted for ingrowing nails and soft corns. 1 neither smoke nor drink therefore, my breath has a fragrance that lingers 1. e. it beats the smell of limbergcr cheese by oneor two points I am not a spring chicken, I am old enough to know that a mistlt marriage beats a misfit coat. I have never been sued for breach of promise never had any one die of love for nie alwayi pay my debts never forget to wash my feet and always attend Sunday school. I have all the virtues of railroad man while at the same time 1 have all tho qalitles of a saloon keeper. No doubt you will be pleased to hear something of my ancestors, My father died very suddenly, he stood under a tree one day, and a rope fell clown on his necu and drew him up before his time. The people thought, so much of him that his death was published in papers all over the world. My mother was noted as a poultry raiser, she raised the finest chickens In the whole country, when the old hens wouldn't 6it on the eggs and hatch 'era out slio would, and she hatched out more ehickens than any hen she had ; she lived long enough to have triplets, and then she died con tented. I have an only brother who will spend the rest of his days in exile, and wear stripes because he was born with a power to take what be longed to others. I had a sister who thought life was a failure, because sue was an old maid, she mado her bosom rise and fall like tho waves on the ocean with half a bale of cotton and a couple of wire springs she gradually dried up to next to nothing and fell a victim to the piles. So you see I stand all alone in the world, like a big sunflower nodding in the breeze. 1 make my living by writing for the newspapers, and doing odd jobs around the town,' oftimes my stomach col lapses like un empty pockctbook. Have-traveled extensively both by land and water, and mostly on foot, In conclusion I will say, if you are a widow with a largo bank account will be tickled to death to hear from you, or it you are a tender eyed ducklo of sweet sixteen and feel tho symptoms of first love creeping up, mid down your spinal column just telegrapli mc a return ticket to your town at once, but II you are a withered old spinster left dried on tlio family tree, and have spent tho best years of your life caressing empty pants you need not write, for I wouldn't spit at you, much less write to you.

The Band Writing n the Wall. Urenadu Sentinel. The resolutions passed by the MIs- Issippi Tress Association are already flowering. The press, with one voice, heralded them from the Mississippi rever to the Alabama line, and from the Oulf to the Tennessee line. The great dailies in Kew Orleans, Mobile, Ilinningham and Memphis printed them as requested, and the press of other States endorsed the determined offort on the part of the hard-ridden Mississippi newspaper editor and publisher to free himself from the imposition which has been upon him from within and from without the State; within the State by men who had climbed into position through the kind unices of the press, and after wards despised the ladder on which they ascended ; without by a band of conspirators who had combined to deprive the job printers of the State of the printing that legitimately be longed to them men who have since been indicted by the federal court, and who, when conviction shall have been had, will be broken by the laws of the State from further participa tion In the pitbic printing of Missis sippi, State, county and municipal. The resolutions passed at Green wood in May did more at one bound to elevate and ennoble the Journalistic profession In Mississippi tliaii any thing else that has happened in twenty-five years. I'hey proclaimed independence, which appealed to the masses of the people and to tlio men of all communities who recognized that they were not only just and right, hut that they would tend to keep thousands upon thousands of dollar in Mississippi annually, and who had seen the press for years and years made hewers of wood and drawers of water for others. The newspaper is the sentinel on the watch towers of freedom. It labors for the public weal. It works In season and out of season for the upbuilding of Its community and the glorious commonwealth which gave birth to a vast majority of tho patri otic newspaper men at the journal istic helm. It is tho master and not the slave of any man or combination of men. Rightly used, it is the lever that moves the world. It has been a long time asserting its independence. The resolutions at Greenwood proclaimed itsdisenthrall dom in "words that burn and thoughts that breathe." It knows its rights, and it has asserted its purpose to maintain them. The constitution and the laws of Mississippi are against trusts, and combinations and unholy alliances. If these alien corporations know when they are well off, they will fold up their tents like the Arabs, and silently steal away. Let the press of Mississippi con tinue to lock shields. In union there is strengtli ; in division there is weak no. r. I'nlque Professorships. Kate Field's W ashington. Nowadays the professors in our col leges would do well to be addressed simply as "Mr. Smith," "Mr. Jones," the title "Professor" being no longer distinctive. A short time ago, as I walked through the hall leading to my board ing house bedroom, I was surprised to see the door open and a man on his knees in the corner. 1 inquired of the chambermaid why he was there. "Oil, he's all right," she answered. "He's Professor Wilkins." Professor Wilkins! Had the man suddenly gone mad? or had he dis covered some new specimen of ani mated nature in my apartment? "Why did you bring him up here?" I asked. "I always wish to have callers wait for me in the parlor." "Oil," giggled the girl, "what would he be In the parlor for? lie's Profes sor Wilkins, the mouse man. Some of the boarders complained there were mice in tlio house, and he's looking for them." When I interviewed Professor Wil kins, he infariued me that he was a professor of rodentology, and I found that his mind really had a scientific turn. He gave some interesting facts in connection with the mouse-catching business. Ono tale was of a lady who was sued by her maid for dam ages, because, In her terror at dlscov Ing a nionse In a sugar-basin, she had flung mouse and sugar and basin ut the girl's head. Another story illustrated tho Influ ence of certain conditions on dreams. The professor assured me that ono of his customers dreamed of mice when ever she ate cheese. Gov. Matthews, of Indiana, wcarsa ring mado of gold mined in Brown county and presented by admiring friends, It bears an alleged quota tion from Jerry Rusk : "1 seem my duty and done It." Sir Isaac Plttman, shorthand in ventor, has Issued a library of about plenty volumes, printed entirely in shorthand, ranging from the Bible to "RllsSCIUS." THE Kfll CCLED CARTER. Since They Blazed With Diamonds They were Worth Wearing. Atlanta Constitution. On tlie promise of seeing something new, if not startling, I accompanied nn acquaintance to meet an incoming steamer from Europe. My acquaint ance had informed me that his cousin was bringing over goods of vety great value, and I expected that considera ble trouble would be consumed in examining and appraising the arti cles. The "cousin" was an attractive young lady and looked rosy and healthy as she tripped down the long plank. She had had a delightful voy- ige, etc., and had been good cn iugh to bring only two trunks. These were found, an inspector made a hasty ex amination of tlie contents, saw that they were only ordinary wearing ap parel, chalked the backsand we started off. We went un town and mado for good restaurant. The interesting small talk of travelers filled in the time until we three were seated at a table and the order gi ven for luncheon. The lady sat next to the wall. "I suppose everything is all right, Julie?" asked my friend. "Yes, Indeed," she replied, smiling triumphantly. "I promised to show this gentleman someiuing," lie saitl. "There 8 no danger that anybody will catch on, so if you've no objection" He paused. She blushed furiously and replied : "Well, I don't know that I care, but it's unusual," Then she reached down toward the floor on the side next the wall, and of course I don't know exactly what she did, but when her hand appealed again it was closed over something, She held it toward me, saying: "Open both hands and be careful." . I did as she told me, and she laid upon my palms a garter that fairly blazed with diamonds. I took one look and whispered: "Smuggled?' She nodded vigorously, while her com panion smiled approval, and re marked : "I shall keep that interesting piece of ribbon. It saved me several thous and dollars In duties." "There's another like it,", said the fair cousin. "But I guess1 I won't take that off." The other, of course, was on the side not next to tlie wall. "You'll have to get a cab now for your curiosity," she added, "for that article was worn for use as well as profit, and If 1 walk well, it might come down, and that wouldn't be pleasant." And after luncheon the happy smugglers went away in a cab. Bollln' Eggs by it Wattb. - "Look here, Sambo," said the hotel keeper, "these eggs are boiled too hard. Now, take my watch and boll them three minutes by it." He gave the negro his splendid gold watch. In about five minutes the freedman returned with tlie eggs and watch on the same plate. Tlie watch was wet. "What have you been doing to my watch?" asked the hotelkeeper. "Why It's all wet !" "Yes, sah," said the negro. "I biled de eggs by de watch. All right dis time, sah !" The Chicago Herald is responsible for the following story: "I have Just heard a story from the White House. A deputation from Colorado called on tlie President and told him they had arranged for a bear hunt in their State for the President and ins Cabinet. The delegation was headed by Secretary of Agriculture Morton, who introduced the members. Tho speaker in an eloquent way, characteristic of tlie boundless West, drew an animated picture of thesport In which the President was solicited to take part. Tho President listened attentively, and after others in the delegation had spoken their pieces lie said, substantially : 'I have a bear hunt here at the Capitol up on the hill that is going to occupy all the time you gentlemen think I have at mydis posal. If I don't burst the gun and the ammunition doesn't run out by the time I'm through with the sport, may be I'll accept your invitation. But I may be permitted to say that you gentlemen do not know what a bear hunt is. You had better stay here and Join me.' It was a study to look at the faces of the Colorado dele, gatlon when the President quit talk ing." Witt. C. Oates, Just elected Governor of Alabama, worked ns a common laborer after he left his father's farm. Afterwards ho taught school and studied law. He left his right arm on a Southern battlefield. Pori't forget that the Demockat Star office Is is the place to have all deserption of Job Printing done in the best style of the art, and at prices that defy competition.

The following advice by a southern veterinarian might probably be adopt ed with advantage by human denizens of mosquito-infected regions: Horses suffer more than any other of our domestic animals from the annoyances of our common fly: the constant worry with these little pestn make the gentlest of horses nertous, Irritable and sometimes actually ill from want of rest and sleep. YotJ find the poor beasts frequently in the morning bathed In perspiration, and In worse state of fatigue than after a heavy day's work. Horses which can have access to the yard or pen during: tlie night generally fare a little better than those which are tied in their stalls. To those who love their horses I wish to give a hint how I succeeded In giving comfort to an ani mal, otherwise very gentle, which had become almost unmanageable through nervous irritability induced by the; teasings of the fly. Half a pound of quassai wood (cost almost nothing), five gallons of hot water, made Into an infusion, Is kept In a demijohn in my stable, and ap plied with a sponge regularly night and morning, ull over the animal. If mosquitoes are very numerous, I add an ounce of oil of pennyroyal (cost nominal) to the infusion, and tho effect is magical. Considering the? small cost and the lesser trouble, I don't see why we should not univer sally use this simple remedy. Try it, and you will find your horse to be grateful for it. The fact that the Populltcs are pushed to the extremity of making such an unwarranted charge as Frank Burkitt is spreading shows that they arc in a bad way. Burkitt charges that Gov. Stone's administration ha been more extravagant than that of the Radical Ames. Of course think ing people know better, but there are many will believe It and the Yazoo1 City Herald tells as follows how to beat into the heads of such that they are mistaken : For fear, however, that soms of these professed believers in Coxcyism and Debsisra may make impressions' upon the thoughtless and unthink ing ones, tlie Herald offers them; this as an answer: When Burkitt, Ratclifl & Co. tell you that you are paying more taxes than when A me had charge of the State, just get ooer of your tax receipts under the Ame regime and one under Gov. Stone's, Compare the two and the difference will be sufficient to prove whether or not Burkitt, Ratcliff & Co. arestatlng what Is true. Also ask them how much was distributed from the State treasury under Ames for public school purposes and how much is now being distributed. Ask them if there wa any Agricultural and Mechanical Col lege for boys, and Industrial Institute and College for girls, supported by the Ames thieving crowd, or not, as there are now. These simplequestions may puzzle some of these Populite leaders, but their true answers will forever settle the question about which ad ministration Ames or Stone was the most extravagant. The Herald hopes no Mississippian will have so little sense as to believe so baseless a charge. Mr, and Mrs. Joseph Bruyere, of Blue Sea Lake, says the Boston Her ald, have given people up the Gatineau something to talk about. A son was born to them the other day, and though that is nothing so remarkable in itself, it becomes so, when it is known that the father is ninety-six and the mother is flfty-two years of age, and seven years have elapsed since a similar event occurred In the family. Papa Bruyere tells his neigh bors ho hopes to see this little Joseph grow to manhood, and he probably will, as it is now the fashion to live beyond par and go Father Time a good many years better. Every man can be his own commis sary in the Japanese army. The gov ernment has ordered 10,000,000 bouil lon capsules from a company In Jersey City, each of which contains jnaterlal enough to make a cup of bouillon of one pound of beef In strength. They are very light, and It is said that ono soldier can carry enough of them to furnish him food for six months. Con federate veterans must regret that this wonderful capsule was unknown In their day. Mr. II. A. Niell, tho well known cotton statistician, estimates the acreage of the growing cotton crop at twenty-one million acres, and the probable out-turn If there's only ten per cent better crop than last year, at 8,000.000 bales. He allows Texas, 2, 450,000 bales of that. Most deaf persons hear better fn tho midst of a modern din than when it is quiet around them.
