By a vote of the people also the propo sition to change the county seat of Traverse county was carried, but parties have re quested the governor not to issue the custom ary proclamation until they can be heard, and he has granted the request.

An Arab Girl ranees With a Lighted Candle on tier Head. The Arab quarter of Port Said, on the Suez canal, consists at present of booths and wooden huts, and the bazars possess for experienced travelers little interest or | pictiiresqueness. In one of them, however, j we found a native cafe, where twoUhawazi girls were languidly dancing before the usual audience of low-class Arabs and con noisseurs, writes a correspondent of the i j Rochester Herald. . One clad in scarlet was a novice of no j '-skill; the other, graceful and clever, with ! ; a handsome face id' tiie old Egyptian typo, j worn hard and marked for life by vice, was prettily dressed in wide trousers of purple ! ami gold, a spangled jacket and head-dress j of coins a, id beads, with a jingling girdle of silver amulets. j I Asked if she could perform for us the | i "balance dance.'' she consented to exhibit : that well-known Egyptian pas for the mod est consideration of two francs and a bottle i of English beer. The cork of this contri- j butlou being drawn, a lighted candle was ' ; lixed in the neck of the bottle, which was : then placed upon the crown of her black j j and glossy little head. A caipet was j j next spread upon the sand, and, extending ' | her hands, a. m -d with castanets, and sing- ' ing in a h'gh but not unpleasant voice to ' ; the accompaniment of a darabouka and i tabab, she swayed her little body in slow I rythmical niitio is to the words of her song 1 I and the measured beat of the inns cians: i j "1 am black, out it is the sun of thy love : i which has scorched ice! Send me some i i rain of help hum thy pity . lam thirsting > , for thee." j The i.oawazi began with Arabic words : I of this tenor, keeping exact time to her ' ' Strain with fool aud hand and the tremors j jof her thrilling slender frame; now slowly ; i turning round,' now softly advancing and; I receding, now clasping her hands across j j her bosom or pressing them to her fore- i ban L but perpetually keeping the bottle ! ' a.4,1 lighted caudle in perfect equilibrium j j upon the top of her bead. Suddenly she sank, with the change in the musical accompaniment, to the ground; j and. while not maintain. ng the completes! : harmony of her movements, but even mak ing this strange posture one of grace and ! thai in, she contrived in some dextrous j manner without touching it, to shift the j bottle from the top of her head to her < ; foreheaad and thus reclined on the mat, ! Iter extended lingers softly slapping the ; castliiets, her si. gut girlish frame palpitat- I ing from crown to feet, always in the . dreamy, passionate measure of the ancient j love song. This was really an artistic piece of dane- j ing, though the performer was only a com mon ••alineir' from the delta; but the dance > is, no doubt, as old as the Pharoahs. and j every step and gesture traditionally handed down. • 1 lie Arab .soldier. Cornhill Magazine. The Arab looks very well on horseback, though he might not altogether suit the tastes of the shires. His saddle is generally red. peaked before and behind, and placed upon several colored felt saddle cloths; the stirrup broadens out so as to give a wide space for the foot to rest on: it is pointed at the corners, thereby enabling the rider to tear the bone's ribs even without the aid of a pointed stick or a steel spear like spur, which he often pushes between his slipper and the stirrup side. The Arab solaier, with his white burtons fluttering behind him. ins high red saddle and saddle cloths. his knees high and body bent forward, with his long s.lver-uioiinted gun flourishing in the air, looks as he gallops forward in a cloud of dust, the very embodiment of the picturesque, exultant war spirit of past ages, not sobered down by scientific formu las for murder, but free to caary out his blood-thirsty purposes with as much swag ger and ostentation as possible. As a Horseman. 1 believe the Arab to have an excellent seat but an excrable hand; he loves to keep his beast's head high in the air, and so he ceaselessly joggles at the bit. upen which he always rides, until one wonders how the wretched brute can put his foot safely down; yet he does, somehow. No one rides camels in this country, but the sultan is said to have some very fleet dromedaries, capable of do ing marvelous journeys; and. of course, in those parts of Morocco which merge into Sahara, the camel is indispensable.

A Typical Tenant Eviction. London St. James Gazette. An eviction took place last week on the Chisholm estate at Invercannich, Strath glass, Inveinesshire, the farmer and his wife being turned out on the highway amid a downpour of rain, and the house, barn and stable thereafter set on tire. The work was carried out at the instance of Chis holm. with the consent of the trustees and executors of the estate. To a witness who was on the spot when the eviction took place, the wife of the evicted tenant re lated that her people had been on the farm for fifty years, Her father had built every stone of the house and paid for the wood used in its construction. At the out set her father had the farm at a yearly ren tal of £27 10s.; but some years afterwards it was increased to £30. By dint of hard labor he was able to pay this sum. but when the present Chisholm's father got possession of the estate the rent was in creased to £40 a year, which the land was Incapable of yielding. After the furniture was moved, the house, barn, stable and dairy were set on lire, and in less than an hour only the stone walls were left stand ing. The sheriff's officers then retired, leaving Peter Shaw and his wife protecting their goods and chattels as best they could from the pitiless rain. The scene, the like of which has not been witnessed in the Strathglass for many a day. was viewed afar off by small groups on the hillsides. The Happy date man. Texas Sittings.

"Yes. of course, a dozen times, but In this case 1 not only kept the two men from ' getting on the train, but their was an old j lady passenger on the train who wanted to j get off. and 1 shut the gate just in time to ! keep her on— and take her along to the next ! station.

The Minnesota & North western Declares ; Itself and the Burlington is Pre paring For a Tight, • . — ■ t An Assertion that I'hll Armour la j Sending Here For Men to j >Vorli in Chicago. ! j The Transcontinental Lines at Log- '. head* and So Prospect of An Early Settlement. "There's sroing to be fun." said one rail- \ road man to another yesterday afternoon. "You bet your life there's going to be j fan," he replied, "and the wildest kind of ! fun. too." They were talk about the ] meeting held Thursday by the Northwest ern Passenger association, at which the Omaha claimed that it was living up to the managers', agreement in letter and spirit, yet at the same time acknowledged that it was making a two-cent rate to laborers to local points on its lines. j These two railroad men were only two j of a hundred or more who were discussing ; the matter yesterday, lt was the general . topic of conversation in railroad circles and i there were some "hot" people. | The Omaha claims that its contract with ! the intelligence office was signed before the managers* agreement was made, and eon- j sequent!? it is bound to live up to it. and it attempts to defend itself by saying that the i two cent rate was made to only those pas- ! sengers secured through this agency. The other roads claim that the contract made i by the Omaha is not a year old by a large j majority, and was made several months I after the managers' agreement was settled, i If this was not the case, they argue that ' the Omaha should have shown the contract at the managers' meeting, and given the • other roads some information regarding it. There arc a dew who think that, inasmuch i as the Omaha road entered the agreement of the. managers, it should cancel its con tract with the labor agent. It is a sure thing that unless the Omaha ! cancels the contract within two days a full-fledged rate war on second-class travel will be waging, and the Omaha gives it out j that it will stay by its contract and let the other roads kick until they get tired, and it don't see why this action should precipitate a rate-cutting melee. There is but little doubt expressed that all the roads have been cutting rates, but it was done on the sly. and they had not the backbone to acknowledge it, as the Omaha did. It is claimed that the rates cut by the Omaha to local points affect rates west of the Mis souri river, because the Omaha sells through tickets to points west of Sioux City over lines other than its own. The cut is made between St. Paul and Sioux City, and regular fare is charged from the latter place to Western points; but a through ticket, sold at these figures, of couse. cuts the rate. The Minnesota & Northwestern people are red headed, and have notified the com missioner that 2 cents a mile would be their second-class rate until further notice, and the Wisconsin Central and Minneapolis & St. Louis says if the other lines want to get the pool it will try and keep along with them. Probably the wildest man in the passen ger department is W. J. 0. Kenyon. of the Burlington ft Northern, lie claims that he has proof that the other lines have been cutting, and when the Omaha declared itself in the association meeting, and the Minnesota & Northwestertern came out with its open announcement that a two-cent rate for second-class travel was good enough for it, Kenyon prepared a quarter s.teet hanger with "war" printed at the head of it In flaming red letters, and announcing that the Burlington was dealing in first-class "labor" rates, and wanted the public to come in and examine its stock. Kenyon intended to hang these posters up through out the city yesterday, but he concluded to wait another day, and if the matter was not patched up, the Burlington would then till the air with chips. The present trouble is over second-class rates, but when the battle is well on and the militant forces get a smell of blood, a furious hacking of first-class rates may be looked for. It was claimed yesterday by some of the roads that Phil Armour, of Chicago, had sent to Minneapolis and St. Paul for labor ers, and Phil being a heavy stockholder in the Milwaukee road, it is alleged that the men sent to him are taken to the Milwau kee road, where they are obliged to put up 39. full second-class tare. When they get to Chicago, if they are employed by Ar mour, this money is returned to them and Armour pays a small rate, geuerally claimed to be one cent per mile, for their transportation. This, of course, adds fuel to the flame, as the other roads claim that it is nothing less than a cutting of rates and that the fact of Armour being interested in the Milwaukee road does not entitle that line to that trade. Long Line* Millitant. The Transcontinental lines are at logger heads and refuse to be reconciled. An effort has recently been made ti get a meet ing of the managers of the various roads In terested In the old Transcontinental associ ation and the managers of the Canadian Pacific railway, but the attempt will prob ably fall to the ground without effect. The object of the meeting would be to end tbe present disastrous war on Pacific coast rates and to effect a reorganization of the association. The Canadian Pacific is anxious to get all the business it can since it runs through a new country that must be populated Before it can expect to become a profitable piece of property, and is ready to enter any agreement, for at the same rates the people bound for the Pacific coast, would for convenience sake, overlook this line and take a southern road. The Canadian Pacific to catch the travel must offer some extra inducements to to the people. The Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe road will not attend the meeting as there is a fight on between the Southern Pacific line and the Pacific Mail Steamship company, and until it is settled it will do no good to organize an association as it would be Impossible to maintain rates. The Canadian Pacific is generally consid ered to be in the field for the purpose of fighting and it is not believed that it would join a pool on pacific coast business under any circumstances. The lines between Chicago and the Mis souri river and St. Paul, interested In Pa cific coast traffic, will hold a meeting in Chicago next week, to take some steps towards stepping the demoralization In rates on California business, from the Chicago territory. The Pacific Coast association agreement cannot be carried out. because some of the new lines between Chicago and j St Paul are not parties to It. and the latter are said to be operating with the St. Paul & I Manitob and the Canadian Pacific on the cut rates. If the new St. Paul lines refuse | to join the Pacific Coast association, there i is little bona of bringing about a restoration j of rates to the Pacific coast from Chicago. If they do consent, however, It is the inten tion to charge arbitrary rates on such busi ness between Chicago and the Missouri river and Chicago and St. Paul. Eastern Cut Hate*. Chicago. Nov. 12.— A stormy meeting ' of the passenger agents of the east-bound lines was held to-day. The Chicago & Grand Trunk and Baltimore & Ohio de manded protection and authority to meet the cut rates of the Chicago & Atlantic, the demand being put in the form of a reso- « lution and voted down. A copy of the rec- | ords of the meeting was then demanded aud will be laid before the managers of the Grank Trunk. It is threatened that the general passenger agent will be ordered to (snore the association and meet its compet itor's rates.

Shrieks rang through the corridors of the fourth floor of the fashionable boarding house, and echoed down the elevator shaft and stariways. There was a rush to room No. 89. The door was burst open and the hoarders poured in, although it was the bridal chamber. On a lounge the young wife of a day was lying, all disheveled, drumming with her French heels on the carpet and sending forth scream upon scream from her lovely throat The hus band, a small and elderly man with a beak like an eagle's, cowered in a corner. He was as pile as a corpse, and shook from the top of his bald head to the ultimate toes of his large feet. Agitated ladies fell upon the bride, ripped mysterious strings and jerked hidden but tons from their fastenings. They chafed her jeweled and shapely hands, and threw water into her fair young face, regardless of the consequences to the new mauve wrapper with a Watteau pleat. "What is it dear?" "What has he done?" "Did he beat you?" "Why did you marry the villain?" These were a few of the questions that rattled upon her like a charge from a shot gun. The bride struggled to a sitting position, and, glaring wildly at the corner where the little man shrunk and shivered, pointed a trembling finger at him. "He deceived me — he— man!" she gurgled. "Yes! Yes! How. dear? How?" "He said lie was worth half a million!" She shrieked again, "Veil!" roared the little man, goaded by the stabs of dozens of indignant and loathing eyes. "Veil, vot of it? She wouldn't hey me mitout" "He's only," sobbed the bride, "he's only worth two hundred thousand!' "Monster!" This by a chorus of twenty. And the pauper husband returned cowed to his corner, and observed in miserable silence the practice of the art of bringing a pure-souled and Buffering woman out of a lit of hysterics without medical assistance.

To put on a clean shirt To damn Grover Cleveland. To pay my taxes. To settle board and washing. To shave myself. To thank God for His blessings. N.

This question has not been sat isfactorily answered, but it is certain that these diseases are not only the most painful but among the most common, and some member of nearly every family in the laud is the victim of one of these dread torment ors. Ladies seem to be peculiarly liable to neuralgic attacks, which, in the form of neuralgic headache, pain in the back, or nervous pains are of constant occurrence. Not until the discovery of Athlophoros had any remedy been found for either rheu matism, neuralgia or nervous headache, and they were generally conceded to be incura ble, but Athlophoros has been proved to be not only a certain cure for these diseases, in all their varied forms, but a safe remedy. If in the use of Athlophoros. the bowels are kept freely open, its success is certain, and to ad this, Athlophoros pills are rec ommended, which, while providing the necessary cathartic, will be found to be a valuable aid to the action of the medicine. Athlophoros is no experiment it has been tested and has proved its wonderful elri acy. ffiSP The Athlophoros pills were originally prepared as a remedy for use in connection with Athlophoros. for rheumatism and neu- I ralgia and kindred complaints. Used in I connection with that remedy, they are a certain cure lor either of these very com _ .ii and distressing diseases. They have • aisu been found to be an invaluable rem edy for any and all diseases arising from vitiated blood or general debility. They are especially valuable for nervous debility, blood po sonng. dyspepsia, distress after eating, headache, constipation. loss of ap petite, and all stomach or liver troubles. For diseases of women they are invaluable. These pills are perfectly harmless and may be safely used by adults or children. Testimonials of those who have been cured will be sent free on application. Every druggist should keep Athlophoros and Athlophoros pills, but where they can- , not be bought of the druggist the Athlo phoros Co., 113 Wall st. New York, will send either (carriage paid) on receipt of regular price, which is Si per bottle for Athlophoros and 50c for pills. A REWARD OF LABOR !
