With one day before them, the young men of New Iberia decided to anticipate the departure of some of our fair visitors by having a "Euchre" party on Thanksgiving night. That their effort was a success need only be premised by the fact that the hospitable home of Mrs. F. Schwing was preffered for the occasion and in addition that fifty-two of society's devotees were royally entertained by the charming hotess Miss Ria Schwing. The guests of the even ing were Misses Gauche and Andronica of New Orleans ; Martha Murphy and Emma Foster of Franklin and Susie Battle of Marlin, Texas. The news of the departure of Miss Lilian Gauche aud Miss Andronica within a few days was a cause of much re gret to their host of friends. The party was brought to n close at half past twelve, after the last card in a series of fifteen games, had been played. The successful prize winners among the ladies were Miss Daisy Romero, 1st prize ; Miss Marie Pat out, 2d prize ; 3d prize going to Miss Louise Battle ; the booby going to Miss Lucy Es torge. The young men received a corre sponding number of prizes in the following order: 1st prize, Mr. A. J. Cammack ; 2d prize, Mr. Wm. McGee ; 3d, Mr. Alfred Dnperier ; booby, Mr. Harold Henshaw. In conclusion too much praise cannot be given to the young ladies for their splendid refreshments and to the sweet hostess who received each and every one of us with that lively and generous hospitatily that is the characteristic and boast of mir South land.

Cheers for Admiral Schley. Chicago, Nov. 25. —Considerable excitement was caused to-night at the Cleveland Theatre, when Al drich Libbey was singing a new ballad, entitled "All Honor to Ad miral Schley." At the conclusion of the chorns—"Then off with your hats, and give him three cheers ! All honor to Admiral Schley"— over half the audience rose to its feet and cheered vigorously. The singer was forced to respond for seven encores. OA.0 Smiths Signatar* of In 1900 the presidential tickets received the following vote in Mary land: McKinley and Roosevelt, 136,185; Bryan and Stevenson, 122,238. This year Herring, demo cratic candidate for comptroller, received 91,040; Platte, republican, 90,587. For clerk of court of ap peals, Turner, democrat, received 90,490; Parron, republican, 90, 634. It will be seen that the dem ocratic state ticket, running on state issues, polled thirty-one thousand votes less than the democratic na tional ticket polled last year when the Kansas City platform was in issue. And yet this is claimed as a victory for the reorganizes. It seems that the greater the falling off in the democratic vote, the great er the victory for the reorganizers.
