His mouth hung open continually and he wore a broad grin on his face all the time. But in body he was especially well made. He had broad shoulders and strong arms. His legs were like black-jack poets. W hen the boy of the ueigbboihood spoke ot Tommie Slick thev said he was a hardlook ing nut. Truly he was. He grinned so much that all the boys asked htm if his dog was dead. Me always an e(wered in a polite manner by cons linuing to grin and say nothing. Tommie Slick's home, when a boy, was a beautiful place. His fa" iher owned many acres of fine farm ing lands. And in the center of bis immense laim a large old-time dwelling-bouse, that bad stood for years, was surrounded by a beauti ful grove of oaks. Near the house was a well ot the best and purest water to be found in the country. A lew hundred yards away stood sn old log house that was large and roomy. When Tommie Slick was a baby the lot ot this barn was fill ad with mules and horses by day and with cows and sheep by n gbi. At night, the mules and horses were Btaddlcd while the cows and sheep had the exclutive range of the lot Tommie, from the lime he could walk, bad full sway in the barn yard. He waB ibe only boy for a few years and life to hm was royal When his legs were long enough to straddle a horse bo lesrntd londe. The proudest time ol bis life was tne day on which hia father brought him back a little saddle from Char lotte. Life to him was sweet and a mnU. Ha rode the horses and f That morning Tom went in hall scared to death. ' He was rather pale and excited. Tie knew A his a, b, c's off by heart but that was all he knew in books. The whole school turned to Tom. There be stood, a little- tquattybuilt lellow with freckled face and glittering eve. His face was rather dirty and his clothes not clean. He looked as meek as a lamb. The teacher heard him recite and then gave him a seat. During the day Tom recited about three timts and in the afternoon when i be last lesson was over he got permission from the teacher to go to the rear end of the long schoolbouse. Tom walked back to the door in the end of the bouse and pltc.d a band on each side of the door facing. The scooi-house was still except the rattling of the slate pencils. Ev ery body was ciphering. That was the cub om in those days. Iu the morn ings, geography, grammar, latin and the like would come, aud in the afternoons, arithmetic occupied the minds of the pupils. This was a busy afternoon. On the outside ill seemed quiet and the sky was clear Bin &it oi attudden there came aloud peal of thunder and Tom Slick was frigbeoed nearly out ol bis wits. He. like a frightened deer, wheeled ATKINSON'S MAJORITY 36.0O0. around and dashed down ibe aisle to Ibe school teacher. lie yelled at the top of bis voice: "It you all know what you are about you'd get. . i t .

Ere long, to reinstate himself with the teacher, he went up, book iu baud, and linger on a word and said, ''teacher, what, is thU?"' Tho teacher said "why Thomas that's a' "Well," said Tom, "it that is "a," that io all I waul to know." The school roared and the teacher fccold cd aud Tom grew pale. But before the lass coulu be quelled aud Tom couhoied. the bov was gone. He- went out the school house door and thence home. Early next, morning be came aLd began the duties of the day io good shape.

Sunday If so come to the NEW JE VVELRY STORE legislature Almost 'Solidly Iemoertle Fopallst Claims of Fraud. .- - " Atlanta, Ga., Octf 8 Advices received in Atlanta up to midnighs from combined official and unofficial sources fix tbe total Democratic ma jority at 36,129 This estimate it based upon tbe vote for Atkinson for Governor, which is in many cases less than that cast for tbe other State official?. It is not be lieved that the final returnB will ma terially change this estimate. The Legislature is almost solidly Demo cratic in both branches, insuring practically the unanimcu election of ex-Speaker Crisp to the Senate to succeed Senator Gordon. Two constitutional amendments were voted on and both were car ried overwhelmingly. One is to provide for ibe increase of the Su preme Court from three to six jus tices and to provide for their elec tion by the people. The other is to make the Stale School Commission er elective. The official returns from McDuffie county, the home of Thomas E. Watson, show that the Populists have carried it by 504 majority. Seaborn Wright, the Populist candi date tor Governor, carries his home county, Gloyd a former Democrat ic stronghold by 200 majority. Cobb connty, tbe home of Demo cratic Chairman Ciay, reported last night 800 Democratic majority, shows only 590 Democratic majori ty this afternoon. . . "1 Populist (Jaairman juunningoam received telegrams this morning from tbe four counties of Marion, Hart, Glasscock and Ta lor, all of w hich were reported to-have gone Democratic last night, claiming them fo- the Populists, with a net gain of 650 over" the estimated Democratic majority. Chairman Cunningham said at ll o'clock tbt Wright, Populist candidate lor Gov ernor, was elected, with tbe rest of the State ticket Democratic. - mannfaeture A exeat Dart of the change is due to those resistless laws of supply and demand, which take heat where it is wanted and gold where it is wanted.

In 1836 DuMau ler's parents took him tn Belgium, and when he was five years old tbe family removed to London, where they lived in a houe afterward ocounied by Charles Dickens. The elder DuMaurier was evidently of a roving disposition, because he soon tired of England and moved to Boulogne. At the age ot thirteen DuMaurier went, to school to a man named Froussard, but he did not distinguish himself, being refused his baccalaureate de gree when be was seventeen yeats I of age..
