Congressman Dave Culberson, as he Is familiarly known In Texas from the Rio Grande to the Red river, Is one of the most entertaining members of the House. He is always ready with witty reply tJ any law or political question propounded to til in by his associates, an j Is the subject of more stories than any member of Congress except Thomas H. Reed. 'In I860, Just after Lincoln had been elected President," said an old friend of Judge Culberson the other. ty, "there was a neighborhood quar rel between two citizens In Upshur county, Tex. The Southern question was at fever heat, and the feeling was very strong on both sides. Each side of the case, of course, was anxious to get the verdict. The defendant went to Jefferson and engaged Culberson, ho was then rising to distinction as bright lawyer. Dave's client didn't have any case, the evidence being all igainst him; but true to his trust, as 0 always is, Culberson determined to make the best tight he could for film. When the trial came off it turned out that the other fellow had employed a smart young saddlebag lawyer from Maryland, lust located in Texas. "Culberson had the opening speech, and made a good defense for his client nder the circumstances. When the Marylander replied in belulf of hi? client, he produced a vast array of iiithorities, from which he read in support of his case. When the young man closed, Culberson picked up one of the books, from which the oppos- ng counsel had been reading and said; '"If your Honor please, this young brother of tbeprofession has been reading for your instruction Massa chusetts law. This book Is printed In Boston. It is Greeuleaf on Evidence.' We don't want Massachusetts law to govern us in Texas. I have been giv- ng you genuine Texas law, luado by ur own people.' '"What's that?' asked the Judge sharply, 'been imposing on the court with Yankee law? '"Yes, sir, your Honor,' said Cul berson, 'he has been reading from this book, which was printed In Bos ton, Mass,' a " 'Pass It over this Way,' said the urpriscd court, looking at the fly "leaf. Then he said: "'Mr. Culberson, the court llncl that you are correct. It Is a Boston print, and we don't want any of it here. No abolition law for Upshur county, and the court will be if we will have it.' "To the supreme disgust of the young lawyer the Court continued as follows: 'Sir, upon the evidence of the case I dismiss the suit against Dave Culberson's friend and fine tlie plain till $1 and costs and his lawyer $5 fot contempt of court. Now, young man let that serve as a warning to you how you try to practice abolition law in this State." Culberson's client setup the din ner, and the ycur.g Maryland lawyer was one of the first men to enlist in the war. I(e wanted to whip Massa chusetts for the loss of his first case." The Mississippi Ctrl. "The boys at home" will doubtless be able to appreciate the truthfulness of tlie following portraituro ot the 'Mississippi girl," as given by the experienced newspaper reporter in the Washington (D.

Airs, with the contldent expression of en lightening you, old, wholesome, pleas ant ideas ideas you believe In at the age when one makes marginal notes ulong the pages of a blue and gold "Lucille." She sings little songs with ad refrains, "Never Again," and "Years Ago." You thinks of her as "old timey," but you thlnic of her. Somehow the soft lamp-light from her parlor window has a will-o'-thc- wispy fascination. You get In the babbit of dropping In. At the end of the season Just before she returns to Mississippi, you rashly ask her to "be your wife." She "declares" she Is "real sorry you've thought of sucti a thing," adding confidentially that she ''does not mind telling you she lias been promised to one of the boys at homo tlifeycar ago?"

Last year 0,800 persons died by vlo' lence, 3,285 more' tlmn-in 'ninety-three.' Only 132 persons were hanged, and ninety-one of these were in the southj inost of liicln bc'lilg negroes. There were 100 lynching; last year 166 of them licit!' in tlie south, no' cording to The Chicago Tribune's record. The total is smaller than that of 'ninety-three, which was smaller than that of the year before. Tlie Tribune also gives these start ling fiVures: The embezzlements and defalcations in the United States din ing the last year amount to the largest total of any year since 1878, when The'Tribune" began reporting thcr.i In annual sum mary. Thi aggregate is $2.,234,122, being 26 per cent greater than the $19,929,092 reported for 1803, and 14 per cent greater than the 22.154.00u reported for 1884, which was" tuc largest since 1S73 till It was surpassed last year. The nilmlierof embezzle' ments was 629. Of these 44 ere for sums more than $50,0(:0 and less than 1100,000 each, 37 for more than 100,000' and less than $500,000 each, 4 for more than 500,000 Imd less than a million each, 'and 4 each of which exceeded a 1 million dollars. The largest month's record in the year was the t4,600,00fj of August, and the smallest (He $677, 047 for October: The greatest aggre gate of embezzlement for any ond StatCjWas the $9,147,379 for New York; and the least reported was the $2,500 for Florida, but tlie record is clear for Nevada, Arizona, the District ot Columbia and South Carolina. The amount embezzled last yeaf was the largest ever reported In our history; and it would seem that the penalties of the law no longer fright-' en those who are tempted or driven td steal. Altogether, it Is a pretty hl'ick re cord, but there is some comfort in Thd Tribune's statement that for three years past tlie number of hangings has steadily grown shialler. Ibeut Prohibition. Cliirlon-Lodger. When the Prohibitionists of Missis slppl review tlie work they havetlone during the past two or three years hey are doubtless very highly delight1 ed, for the very simple reason tha considered from their standpoint, they have accomplished great good,- and from any other standpoint, wonders'; There are seventy-five counties in the State and until tho last very few years saloons and grog shops of Jiigtl and low degree were in full blast in most of them, but one county after another has arrayed itself in the side of the cold water advocates, until in T804 only fourteen counties remained friendly to whisky.- "r , The counties wherein the Saloon , were in "operation last year and the amount, each paid into the State treasury were.: Adams, $13,000; Gre nada, $4,800; Hancock, $1,200; Harri son, ,00O; Hinds, $,(!00; Issaqjctia, $3,000; Jackson, $").704 Madison, $3,600; Monroe, $2,400; Quitman WOO; Talla hatchie, $1,200; Tunica, $1,800; Warren", $30,500; Washington, $13',200. Total, $107,600. During the last few months local options have been held in several of the above named counties, about half of them, and in most, if not .quite, every instance, the result has been in favor of prohibition. While in 1891 the handsome sum of $107,600 was paid Into the State treas ury by the sa'loori men of tho above named fourteen counties, Unit sum was $22,800 less than the State re ceived from tills source In 1893. Tlie reduction along the line for 1805 will be still more glaring. Tlie high license laws in operation In Mississippi the past few years have been powerful fwtor In driving the saloon out of business. The State license in even tho smallest town otv village IsSMX); and the municipality' has the right to' double or quadruple that sum at pleasure. . ,, "The hew constitution Iii regar'W , tho $2 optional poll tax," v tb " Byhalla Journal, "is meet!' w,th great deal of comment lflne Press throughout the St iityi'flin-- J- R Prosthr..
