THE RIVER MAILt. c
The Carroll Banner takes excep- n4
tion to the remarks of the TIEs i
on the river mail service, and pro
ceeds to praise tie officers of the (
Issaqut'na. Of course the ollicers m
of the boat have nothing to do with
the ;matter except to make tlhe
landings. The mail agent is the
man to I,lame, presuming that the tr
proper landings are made. The is
TI'IMES was informed by two re
spoinsible gentlemen from Milli
ken's Bend, that they had known
it to take a week for mail from
Tallulah via the river route, to 01
reach thie Bend, and one case eOf
the kind had occurred that very
week, and also that up mail had
been piut off on a down trip of the
Issaquena, which is conclusive that s
it had been carried by.
Since writing the above, facts
have come into the possession of .,
the TIMEs which prove that the n,
Banner went of half cocked. It
can lie proved that the mail has i
been taken up on the Issaquena.,
and not even put off on the down f(
trip. The East Carroll Democrat t
tells a very dilfferent story from iI
the Banner, and altogether the s,
Banner appears to have rushed
blindly into a matter on which it I
is not posted. The boasted certifi
cates of efficient service were ob- J
tained by requesting them, and ;,
were not voluntary offerings.
There may Ie solmefew that were
volunteered, but thley were gener
ally sought, probably after special
eflforts had been made to give good (
service, and were oven then not
- always obtained when sought.
The TIMES maintains its position.
The River mail service as per the
e Issaquena is a sham, a delusion, J
an unmitigated, and inexcusable
A CAT BO0M.
d In addition to her other booms,
Alabama now proposes a boom in
black cats. A company has been
organized, with a capital of $100.
n 000, for the purpose of raising
black cats and selling their skins
i- for mink skins. The fur of a black
e cat is well known to be valuable,
- and this is not the first attempt to
utilize the skins of black cats.
Some years ago an enterprising
-r Dutchman undertook to go into
' the black cat business. lie bought
an island in the middle of a large
western river, and stocked it with
black cats. Twice a day he visited
n that island and fed his cats, and
i they increased with a rapidity that
was as astonishing as it was grati
fying. The island literally swarm
ed with black cats.
al The Dutchman was unexpected
- ly called away on business, and ex
Y pecting to be gone only a day or
'1 two, made no arrangements for
d feeding the cats. He was detained
a- month, and on his return hurried
over to the island with a lot of cat
feed. He stepped out of his boat,
leon landing and started inland.
rBefore he had gone ten feet, a
black spectre, having the sem
blance of a cat, met him. "The
e spectre appeared to the wondering
Dutchman to be about three feet
high by six long, and with no depth
e whatever. The spectre gave utter
- anee to a harsh and angry "meion"
- and down every path camle an
s army of black cats or what was
n left, of what had once been cats,
r tall, thin, fierce, belligerent. From
- every bunch of grass, emerged a
a cat, from behind every stump,
came a cat, the trees seemed to be
full of cats, the ground all around
h- the now terrified Dutchman, was
.n alive with cats, all pressing to
m wards the Dutchman, and followed
as by more cats who called to other
y cats behind them to come on.
is- A chorus of cries arose, and the
e Dutchman, plainly distinguished,
nI words and sentences mingled with
is the cries, such as "here is that
no d-n DI)utchmr.an at last," "let us
te go for that Dutchman," "let us see
:r how Dutch meat tastes." The
e. Dutchman waited to hear no more.
in He turned and fled, but he was too
he late; the cats sprung on him, from
in- all sides, they dropped on him
pt from the trees, they covered him,
of they clung to his legs. He trip
en ped and fell. A confused and
'ee howling heap of black cats was all
he that could be distinguished, tight
e- ing, squalling, biting. They tore
A the Dutchman's clothes from him-.
at they tore his flesh, his cries only
nt made them more savage. In less
d than three minutes, all that re
m~-ained of the Dutchman was his
a bones, and around the scattered
at bones sat an array of black cats,
Slicking their paws and purring
oh oftly, and with deep satisfaction.

until thi.s Alaumna schete wa:
e developed. The fate of the Dutch
man is given by the TIMES as a
h warning, and will doubtless put
the Alaamalna Co., on their guard.
I Properly imanlmaged there should be

is necessary to make the business
a success. Let the Alabama Co.,
be on their guard.
