Shot ThroBKb the Bdy.
Cameron, Tex., Sept. 21. Forsome
time there has existed a feud between
B. B. Williams and Tom Newman,
who jives between this place and
Milano junction, in this county. Last
night they met near Milano, and both
being armed Williams shot at Newman.
Newman shot Williams through the
body with a rifle of large cal'bre. Wi'
l'aras was thought to have been mor
tally wounded. Newman is in the
hands of the officers.
Edison is engaged in studying
the problem of aerial navigation, so
perhaps the problem of reaching the
North Pole by balloon, once scouted
as chimerical, may yet be accomplish
ed. The only woman lawyer in Philadel
phia is Mrs. Carrie B. Kilgorc. She
has an enviable reputation at the bar,
and there is not a judge in the city
who does not respect her for her legal
ability.
The Bishop of Liverpool protests
strongly against the encylical letter on
the ground that it "ought to have
contained some distinct reierence to
the unhappy division about the Lord's
Supper, which threatens to break up
the Established Church of England un
less speedily held.'
The Boston Journal sayss that a
colored nurse, who went from New
Orleans to take charge ot yellow fever
patients in Jacksonville, rather aston
ished the physicians by a refusal to
nurse coioreu people, oncsaiu uiuig
nantly; "Me take charge of the col
ored ward! Not much! I'm one of
the leading trained nurses of New Or
leans, and I diden't come here to
nurse niggers! I'm a lady?"

Lessing, Solomon & Rosenthal,
I As an illustration: of progress in
Central Asia it may be mentioned that
while a few years ago the traveler was
likely to be killed by the natives, he is
now in greater danger of being smash
ed up in a railroad accident. A train
on the Trans-Caspian road was upset
a few weeks ago near Samarcand, and
five people were killed. They hap
pened to be train hands and Euro
peans, but had they been Mohamme
dan pilgrims, who now employ this
modern method of expediting their
journey to Mecca, there might have
been a great outcry against the in
fidel invention for killing off the faith
ful.
Recently Recorder Davenport, of
Kansas City, decided that women may
dress in male attire. Since his decis
ion men have been dressing in the
garb of females and nightly appearing
in such on the streets, some of the
thieves and footpads having adopted
the scheme to ply their trade. Re
corder DaVenport was asked on Sun
day what he would do with men dres
sing in female attire. He laughingly
replied: "I have given no attention
to that side of the matter. I suppose
I'd be staggared if such a case should
be brought before me. I'd rather not
commit myself on it, but I see no rea
son why a man shouldn't wear panta
Ietts it he wants to.
Mrs. Anastasla Patten, who was
widely known as a society leader at
Washington, diSd at Portland, Me.,
the other day. One year ago she suf
fered a nervous shock as the result of
a narrow escape from drowning at
Seabnght, N. J. She had been more
or less of an invalid ever since. Mrs.
Patten was one of the "richest women
in America. She was said to be worth
$5,000,000. She was a bold specula
tor, and during the past few years ad
ded largely to her wealth by real es
tate investments. Eighteen months
ago one of her daughters was married
in Washington to Congressman Glover
ot Missouri. 1 he wedding was one
of the notable sotiety events of the
season. Mrs. Patten signalized the
occasion by presenting the bride w ith
$500,000 worth of 4 per cent United
States bond.

George Keenan, in his article on
Russia, published in the Century mag
azine, tells a good story, illustrating
the carelessness that characterizes the
working of the Russian government.
A "stola nachalnik," or head of a
bureau, in the provincial administra
tion ol I obolsk, while boasting one
day of his power to shape and direct
govemmental action, made a wager
with another chinonik that he could
get the Governor of the province the
late Gov. Lissogorski to sign a
manuscript copy of the Lord's Prayer.
He wrote the prayer out in the form of
an official document on a sheet of
stamped paper, numbered if, attached
tne proper seal to it ana nanaea it to
the Governor with a pile of other pa
pers which required signature, He.
won his wager. The Governor duly
signed the Lord's Prayer, and it was
probably as harmless an official docu
ment as ever came out of his office.
The Atlanta Constitution, says if
the farmers of the whole South are as
much in earnest in their efforts to de
stroy the jute Bagging Trust as the
farmers of Georgia there will be no
trouble about the matter whatever.
The Georgia planters are in earnest,
and tb probability is that the trust will
not have much of an effect on them.
By antagonizing the.trust in every pos
sible way the farmers will not only save
money, but will aid in the develop
ment of new enterprises for the manu
facture of bagging, There will be no
lack of capital to invest in these en
terprises, and the only vinder is that
the South, with its wonderful resources
has not long ago prepared itself to
furnish the wrapping for its great crop,
instead of buying it abroad.
The days of Mormonism in the Uni
ted States are numbered. The Gen
tiles now have the majority in .the
Territory, and there is nothing for the
"Saints" to do but to take up their
beds and march to the vast estates
they have purchased in Mexico. It
will be a good riddance. Louisville
