It will have three clcctrk- lights clus tered nt the head of each of its two masts r! feet above the water line.

As long ago as 1 S'.KJ the ex periment of lighting l'iccadilly with electricity was tried. Now it lias been decided that the success of the experi ment warrants an extension of elec tric lighting hi the IJritish capital. In a few of the main thoroughfares poles Lave been put up, and noon these Vtreets will be lighted by electricity. IJirminghain, the great manufacturing city, is Ktlll lighted by gas. though it 5s proposed to consider the question of putting In electric light "in a year or two." Cork, on the other hand, has a complete electric lighting service and gets its electricity as cheaply as any other city. If there Is no tranquillity in the ideal Lome without domestic economy, there can be also no good temper and LappineBS without the thrift that ends In saving. It Is not alone necessary to spend no more than your Income: It Is equally obligatory to save a por tion of it for future emergencies. The man who has not the fortitude to avoid consuming every year all Lis earnings of the year does not deserve an ideal- home. To be solvent, a man should have suffi--ient earnings saved and invested to meet the Inevitable rainy day which comes in one form or another to every individual and every family, claims a writer In the Christian Register. To be honorable to bus marriage vows,, a man should Lave some provision made, tu the form of a life insurance for the support of bis wife, and family, should death suddenly overtake liliu. The time has beeu wlum it was sup posed that anybody could be a farmer. So he can, but not a successful fann er. Agriculture, like other occupations, is advancing in character. The suc cessful farmer must understand, soils, and fertilizers and methods of culture, and rotation of crops, and breeds and types of cattle, fruits and grams and grasses, methods of dairying and a multitude cf other tilings for which only a special scientific education with reference to agriculture can thorough ly prepare, observes the American Ag riculturist. The successful fanner is the man who practices farming as a profession just as the lawyer practices law; who makes his living and" accu mulates property by means of his farm who make experiments not at random and foolishly, but rationally, under the guidance of scientific knowledge- who not only makes a success of bis own business, reaping good har vests from all that he sows, but who is a li"ht and an Inspiration to his -w.i,.,iHn!-ftl brethren, wise in counsel. 1 1 - Intelligent i" instruction and en lhu'.astie in planning ind lending. lie is im ,l..pend'-nt, self-reliant.

AMERICA MAY BE HOODWINKED Report Comes That the Orientals Nave Voluntarily Begun Pun ishment of Boxer Leaders. A Loudon special says: Beyond a number of imperial edicta, which throw into still worse confusion the complicated. Chinese situation, there was little in Sunday's uewa to arrest attention. From Shanghai cornea an unconfirmed report that the allies have seized Shan llai Kwan. All the news with regard to the edicts emanates from Shanghai. According to these advices, in addition to the edicts ordering Grand Councillor Kun Kang to offer oblations before the cofliu of Baron Von Ketteler and the edict directing that Li lluug Chang's entire plan be followed in regard to tho punishment of the princes and high ministers of Btate responsible for tho anti-foreign outrages, and the decree ordering that funeral honors be paid in Pekin and Tokio to the remains of Suglyatna Akira, tho mur dered chaucellor of the Japanese lega tion, Emperor KwangSu has addressed further letters to the czar and the mi kado renewing his request for their aid in the peace negotiations. Various opinions are expressed as to tho importance of the edicts and tho sincerity of tho Chinese. While theso edicts have promulgated, however, feverish war preparations are still re ported from Shanghai, and new ap pointments have been made to the Chinese army and navy. "The Chinese Official Gazette has resumed publication," says the Pekin correspondent of The London Morn ing Tost, writing September 23th, "and contains an order directing the Pekin oflicial3 to follow the court un less their duties here prevent them leaving." CHINA ACCEPTS OUR SUGGESTIONS. Important news reached Washing ton Saturday afternoon, which in itself tends to advance materially the efforts for a final settlement. China has ac cepted the suggestions of the United States contained in the answer to the German proposition, and ha begun voluntarily the punishment of the re actionary Chinese leaders who were responsible for the Pekin outrages. The department of state was informed by Consul General Goodnow, at Shang hai, that Sheng.Chinese director of rail ways and telegraphs, has handed him a decree of the emperor and empress, dated at Talgnan, September 25th, blaming their ministers for encourag ing the boxers. The edict orders the degradation of four princes and de prives Prince Tuau of his salary and official servants. He is to be brought for trial before the imperial clan court. It will bo recalled that in our auswer the state department was careful to state that while it did not believe in demanding the surrender of the Chi nese ringleaders as a condition prece dent to negotiations, it was resolved firmly, as Secretary Hay had said in his note of July 3d, that in the end tho guilty parties should be hold to the uttermost accountability. The Chinese government has taken this in timation to heart, and perhaps hasten ed in iis action by the recent manifes tations of dissatisfaction by the United States government at the reported pro motion of Prince Tuau, already has begun the punishment of him and the other Chinese leaders who fire held guilty. RUSSIA WITHDKAWS FROM TEKIN. At tho conference of generals at rekin on September 25 the Russian commander, General Lmevitch, an nounced the immediate withdrawal from Pekin of the bulk of the Russian troops and the legation. There will remain a mixed force of bout 2,000 to represent Russia. WHEELER IS MAGNANIMOUS. Will Not Oppose Senntor Tettus Owlnc to Strong Friendship Between Them. A prominent north Alabama poli tician is authority for the statement that General Wheeler aspires to the sonatorship, but that he is friendly to Benator Pettus, whose term expires tw o years from this time, and will not oppo'se him. Senator Pettus is under stood to havo rendered Gen. Wheeler substantial aid in his military aspira tions. Senator Pettus is the oldest man in the senate, however, and if he should die or for other reason not be in tho race nest time, tho Alabama hero of Santiago will go right int? the race. BRANCH JAILED AT ATHENS Ncjvro Who Killed Bell and At tempted to Assassinate Mo I.anahan and Wife Caught. William Branch, colored, who shot and killed George Bell at Klborton, (a., Thursday morning, was caught in Athens Friday, where, it is under stood, he has confessed the deed, also to shooting G. H. 5IcLanab.au and his wife Thursday night while they were asleep. Since tho former report of the shoot ing it is learned that Branch went to McLanahan'a bouse and watched him and his wife retire, getting his bear ings through an open window. When Lanahan and his wife had been in bed about ten or fifteen min utes, the lights having been put out and the window left open, Branch, ac cording to his own confession, walked up to the window and deliberately shot the parties because McLnnahan had shot at him that morning after he had killod Bell. Governor Candler stated Friday night that no cull had been made on him by the county officers at Athens for trtops to protect the Ufa of Branch. The question of his removal from Athens, where ho was captured, to Et berton, thirty miles away, where the murder was committed, was apparently left by tho arresting oflicers to Gover nor Candler. The chief executive stated when approached on this subject that he had absolutely no authority to sny what disposition should be made of Branch and that it was a question for the judge of the superior court of the western circuit to determine. Until called upon for troops and the call has been granted and tho negro is in pos session of tho military the governor can exercise no initiative.

Perry Thompson, 5Iiss Harrington's or Mrs. Hudson's brother-in-law, said that 5Ir. Hudson told Mr. Harrington that he could not afford to announce the wedding, as his uncle objected and it might cause him some embarrass ment in his business relations.

W08SAN SKIDMEYTROUBL Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com pound is Especially Successful in Curing this Fatal Woman's Disease. (flfpf til -7 J uj.. N) Of all the diseases known with which the female organism is afflicted, kidney disease is the most fatal. In fact, unless early and correct treatment is ap plied, the weary patient seldom survives. Being fully aware of this, Mrs. Pinkham, early in her career, gave ex haustive study to the subject, and in producing1 her great remedy for woman's Ills Lydia, E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound was careful to see that it contained the correct combination of herbs which was sure to control that fatal disease, woman's kidney troubles. The Vegetable Compound acts in har mony with the laws that govern the entire female system, and while there are many so called remedies for kidney troubles, Lvdia E. Pinkham's Vege table Compound is the only one especially prepared for women. The following latters will chow how marvellously successful It is : Aug. 6, 1899. " Dear Mrs. Pinkham : I am fail ing very fast, since January have lost thirty-five or forty pounds. I have a yellow, muddy complexion, feel tired, and have bearing down pains. Menses have not appeared for three months ; sometimes I am trou bled with a white discharge, and I also have kidney and bladder trouble. . . I have been this way for a long time, and feel so miserable I thought I would write to you, and see if you could do me any good." Miss Ed.ha. Frederick, Troy, Ohio. Sept. 10, 1899. "Dear Mrs. Fiskuam: I have used Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound Recording to directions, and can say I have not felt so well for years aa I do at present.
