A Charming Pen-Picture of a Charming Woman. A Clarksville Young Lady Telia of a De lightful Interview With This Distinguished Woman. To the Tobacco Leaf- Jhronicle. Elkton, Va., Dec. 27. I have it in my mind to write you a letter, but "How the subject there may gang, Let time and cliauoe determine, It may perhaps turn oat a sang, Perhaps turn out a sermon." Since leaving Clarksville in mid summer, I have been over a goodly portion ot the Old Dominion, taking in W shington, Mount Vernon and many other beautiful places, but I think an account of my visit to Amelia Rieves will be of much in terest to your readers, especially as the eyes of the literary world have once been turned upon her, by the recent publication of "Barbara Der- ing." Ttie late magazines and pa pers are discussing this book, so criticism from me is out of order. Besides I have not read it. I did read the story to which it is a se quel, "The Quick or the Dead," and it impressed me as "a bit of literature to be handled only with the tongue," but as I sat in the elegant drawing room of Castle Hill, and looked at its distinguished authors, the old French proverb Uoni soil qui mol y pense came into my mind. Con trary to many criticisms, I foucd her a most refined, lady-like and charm ing woman, and saw nothing about her suggestive of "standing on her head on top of a haystack," and the many masculine qualities with which the press has endowed her. She poke, herself, of the various pen portraits that had been drawn of her, saying how untrue to nature they were; that they were so many pet spooks, with which she amused herself aud that she considered herself some thing of a philanthropist from the fact that many a poor, half-starved reporter had made a comlortable fee by writing mean things of her. This was not siiiil In sareusm either; those who know her will say she 1s the soul of charity. Her face cert. inly indicates this grace, as well as miny other strong and admirable tra'ts of heart and mind. None of her pictures do justice. While they show her ex quisitely moulded features, they lack the expression of snuliui intelligence and kindness that beam on you in her presence ; but even these charms are eclipsed by an indescribable some thingthat which novelists call "the spiritule." She is decidedly classi cal in Hppearance, and is a genius of high order. She was writing Barba ra Dering at the time of my visit, but Slid she gave only her leisure moments to it, devoting most of her time to art. She brought her mas ter, La Sa, from Paris, and to use her own words, "is working like a little dog," Another expression was: "I am studying art like a man." She meant by this that she was not satisfied with the superficial daubing that is the h ight of ambition to the average woman. But there is noth ing mediocre about Amelie Rieves. I asked to see some of her pictures. She answered: "I don't make pic tures." I am trying to master the fundamental principles of art. How ever, she showed me sme of her studies. One was of her private secretary. Now, girls, you hopeful young artists of Clarksville, what do you think of it ? Amelie Rieves, after studying art all her life, both in America and abroad, does not think herself competent to make a picture. By the way, she told me that our own dear Miss Eva Smith was the only American teacher 6he ever had. She spoke in very com plimentary terms of Miss Smith's ability and thoroughness both in music and art. One of Mrs. Chandler's greatest charms is her perfect simplicity. As I eat in the drawing room awaiting her entrance I expected to see a great, stately woman sweep in, awing me with her mag nificence and imposing manners. I was agreeably surprised when a petite little blonde appeared in a simple walking suit, receiving me iu the unaffected, cordial way that bespeaks really good breeding. Dur ing our conversation she remarked that Bhe never saw any callers, that she had grippe seventeen times and that it made a hole in one of her lungs. A recent paper stated that she was threatened with rheumatism and had gone to Warm Springs for relief, which I sincerely trust phe may get. The rumor of an eslrang ment between her and Mr. Chandler is no doubt false, as she mentioned j him in a very affectionate way, say- inc his pet uHiiie for her was "Amy." j We received further hospitality at ! the bands of Mrs. Rieves, who or dered quite a comfortable lunch for us, and expressed regrets at not being able to invite us to remain to dinner, saying the chief butler Was out. One thing more I must mention. and that is Amelie Rieves' delight ful faculty of coining words in con versation as well as in her writings. They roll from her tongue, seem' ingly without effort, and are gen' erally composed of roots, which express hei ideas in a crisp and original style. H. L. Y. Reputation. The reputation of a man is made up of what people say of him. In like manner the reputation of a med icine depends on what they who have used it say. JNo remedy in ex istence has so good a reputatioa as a blood remedy as B. B. B. (Botanic lilood JLSalin). it is a successful phy sician's prescription, and quickly cures both mild and terrible cases of bad blood. Dr. L. A. Guild, Atl tnta, Ga , writes: "Wm. Sealock, living on my place, had an ugly running ulcer on his arm which ordinary remedies tailed to control. As a last resort 1 placed him on a use of B. B. B., and the ulcer began to heal at once, and effected an entire cure. It is a rem edy well worthy of confidence." Dr. J. E. Hall, druggist at Ameri ca, Ga., writes: "A planter near this place had several of his beet la borers effected with syphilis. He got them B. B. B., and pronounced them all well. A gang of A. P. & L. railroad hands use B. B. B. with great benefit to counteract the effects of swamp malaria. THE CHARGE DENIED. Reported That Mr. Cleveland is For Porter or McMillin. The Friends of the Aspiring- Candidates, However, Say the Report la Without Foundation. Washington, Dec. 31 The charge made in the New York Sun that President-elect Cleveland is at tempting to control the senatorial election in Tennessee in behalf of Porter or McMillin is creating much interest here. It stirs up considera ble feeling among the friends of Bate and Taylor, who say they doubt the accuracy of the statement. It is well known, however, that Mr. Cleveland was very fondol-ftx-Clov-rit when the latter was Assis tant Secretary -of State, and doubt less would be very glad to see him in the Seriate in a time when he will need friends there, as seems likely to be the case during the next two years. Ex-Gov. Taylor's friends here claim to have a report from Tennessee which justifies them chiming his election as highly probable. Should cx Gov. Porter not become Senator it is quite probable that he may bo invited to take his old posi tion as Assistant Secretary of State, or perhaps be given an important mission abroad, for which his ex perience aud ability would especially lit him.

The all-absorbing topic about the court-house now in the political field is the contest for United States Sena tor. Clarksville can get stirred up on politics quicker than any city on earth and it can cool down Just as quick. Three days ago this contest was hardly mentioned. Now, how ever, everybody has something to say about it. The city is divided on the question more tiian many peo ple had expected. The division, however, is between Taylor and Bate, Col. Savage not being in it. There are many who say Bale has a walk over, while oth- rs say Taylor will get there. Another faction is In favor of a deadlock and of having the seat filled by a dark horse.

Miss Kate Anderson, who wa9 as saulted, and for which the Bowling Green mob hung Bob Harper, made public the following statement yes terday: "I have no doubt whatever, and the conviction has grown upon my mind since the first time be was brought Into my presence that Bob Harper was the negro who assaulted me Dec. 14. Only the fear that he would be instantly hung befoie my eyes kept me from saying so post lively all the time, and I could not rid myself of this fear, and I was so nervous and frightened when I was before the court at times I could not command my voice to Ulk. If any blame attaches to me for this let the people blame me. I always knew and said that it was a face 1 had seen before, but it was so horribly dis torted that day I could not Identify him. I had not seen Bob Harper but three or four times lathe last two years, and had been accustomed to seeing him with his mill clothes on, and his face, eyebrows and hair covered with mill dust. It was a horrible death for any human being, but 1 would never have been without fear as long as he was alive. I make this statement in justice to myself and everybody concerned in this un fortunate affair, uninfluenced by the members of my family or anybody else."

Further Specifications of the Literary Ring's Doings. Washington, Dec. 81. The Post re- Iterates its recent assertion that certain valuable manuscripts that had been placed in the archives of the state de partment for the benefit of the public had been utilized only for the use of cer tain parties in Boston. The Post asserts that the western writer it recently at luded to who was not allowed access to these documents was Mr. William Henry Smith who, though "a man of tnriunoe, or reputation ana or learning, nevertheless found that not one of these qualities was an open sesame to the oareruiiy guarded, records." terta that while the historical papers have been so jealously guarded from the seeker after information who wae not within the ring, it is a fact that those who had the pull were allowed not only to place all available copyists at work, but to bring cameras and photograph page after page of the val uable records, penmanship not being swift enough. During the past few years everything that is of any value in the department has been carried away not bodily, to be sure, but in fac simile for the financial benefit of a cer tain firm which has been enjoying a monopoly or tnese records. RAILROAD DEAL. The Baltimore and Ohio Secures Control of the Ohio and Mississippi. Baltimore, Dec. 81. The contest made by the old directors of the Ohio and Mississippi Railway company, against the control, of that company passing into the hands of the Baltimore and Ohio, has been brought to a close by the voluntary resignation of four of five remaining members of the old board. These vacancies will be filled by friends of the Baltimore and Ohio. Prior to the retirement of this last batch of directors the Baltimore and Ohio had practical possession of the Ohio and Mississippi, eight of the thir teen directors in tho company being friendly to the Baltimore and Ohio, and were elected members of the board through Baltimore and Ohio influences. The voluntary resignation of these di rectors avoids the necessity of further litigation to compel them to relinquish their positions. NEWS IN A NUTSHELL.

Th Trag-io End of a Clarksville Boy On the High Ssas Buried at Ksy West. Mr. J. M. House, of Dallas, Texas, encloses the Leaf-Chronicle the following notice of the death of Capt. Ernest Maynard, which he clipped from a recent issue of the Dallas News : Capt. Maynard, the young man whoue mother is the matron of tne Woman's Home in Dallas, Is dead. The News some time ago published a full account of his rapid advance In position as a seafaring boy and how highly he was estimated. In early manhood he is cut off. He fell from the rigging to the deck and was so badly injured he died on shipbo-ml and was buried at Key West as soon as his ship got in port. Ernest Maynard was born in the old Southern Hotel in this city about twenty-two years ago a ad was con sequently in his twenty-third year, His father was route agent for the Southern Express Company and had his headquarters here for several years, boarding at the Southern Hotel. Some time ago the Leaf Chronicle published a thrilling ac count of young Maynard's experi ences on the sea and in foreign lands, and for his fight for promotion. Th account read like a romance and will be remembered by the readers of the Leab'-Chronicle. Young Maynard was second officer on the steamer "Alamo" when killed. In speaking of the death, Mr. House adds: "His parents h id a great many friends in Clarksville, and I know his poor mother, who is now living in Dallas, and seems almost heart broken, would appreciate a notice of his death in the Leaf Chronicle." There are many people iu Chirks ville who have u pleasurable recol lection of Mrs. Mayr.ard and her little sou, and she will have their sympathy in her bereavement. Fiom Newberg. C. F. Moore & Co , prominent druggist of Newberg, O.-e., says : "Since our custo neis have become acquainted with the good qu illie of Cham herla in's Cough Remedy, we sell but little of any other kind.

The Memphis Appeal-Avalanche says editorially: "The Appeal-Avalanche has information that the con dition of Gov.-elect Turney is far more seriom than the people of the State geneially believe. The an nouncement made yesterday in the Appeal-Avalanche's dispatches that the oath of ofll'-e would be adminis terd to him at his home is indicative, to a certnin degrie, of real truth, which is discouraging in the utmost degree. There are many persons having close knowledge of the dis tinguished invalid who do not be lieve that he w ill ever reach Nash ville, lie Is suffering a complication of diseases, any one of which would be regarded as dangerous."

The people of Montgomery county who want fine bronze turkeyu, stand ard bred, for breeding purpose', should not send away from home to get them when they can be had cheap right at their doors. Jno. B. Ferguson, of Glenellen, ia running an advertisement in the Semi-Weekly Luaf-Chbonicle in which he tells the people that he has a very fine lot of standard bred bronze tur keys which he will sell at prices reasonably low. He has recently added to bis drove a fine young gob bler purchased from Geo. Wolfe, of Seneca Falls, a famed breeder of standard bronze turkeys. This tur key cost Mr. Ferguson ten dollars and the express charges from Sen eca Falls, amounting in all, to sixteen dollars. He also has a yearling gob bler of his own raising which tilts the scabs at forty pounds. This drove of turkeys is perhaps the finest one in Tennessee, and there Is no good sense in people sending ofi to buy bronae turkeys when they caa be had at home as well bred and at cheaper rates than they can be had elsewhere. Address Jno. B. Fergu son, Glenellen, Tenn. Do you wish to know the quickest way to cure a cold? We will tell you. To cure a cold quickly, it must be treated before the cold has become settled in the system. The first sym toms are a dry, loud cough and sneezintr. The cough is soon follow ed by watery expectoration, and the sneezing by a profuse watery . dis charge from the nose. In severe cases there is a thin white coating on the longue. What to do s It is only necessary to take Chamberlain's Cough remedy In double doses every houi. That will vreatly lessen the severity of the cold and In many ciHes will effectually counteract it, and cure what would have been a se vere cold within one or two days' time.
