There is a small frog pierced through and securely fastened on the sharp point of one piece, a large beetle impaled upon another, a cata pillar on one, a spider hooked on another and what is called " the devil's riding horse," a peculiar shaped long bodied "critter" caught on still another. These insects are as carefully and se curely fastened on the sharp points of the pruned erape vines as if placed there by hand almost, and they may be found all over the vineyard.

The following Huntsville, Ala., editorial from the Independent shows Hall next Wednesday evening and we character and standing of the offi nnote from the JNew lorK wortaine, following about its production in that city : . When a play possesses dramatic inter est and not only serves to please the eye by means of its attractive dress but its musical .features as well, there can be lit tle question of its popularity. Such a piece is " Lost in London." The theme is effectively handled and the climaxes are dramatic. In short, Irom a purely dra matic standpoint. Newton Beers' " Lost in London" can stand upon its merits, but inasmuch as the resources ol tne scenic artist and stage machinist have been drawn upon, and the musical ele ment has been introduced, the produc tion at once becomes especially attract ive. . ..

In other words, the cutters propose to con trol "cutters" themselves, thereby cut ting the speculators and order men out of a job and the honest farmer out of a good many dollars. As a matter of information, the Golo Leaf is desirous of knowing what pro portion of the employes that find work in the various tobacco establishments of the town : warehouses, stemmeries, prize houses and factories, are white people. It would be an interesting study we think to know how few of them are white. Why is this ? Is it because white laborer can not be had or is the preference given to the blacks?

We Want the First Copy. Who is there that does not know the inimitable Henry Blount, of the Wil son Mirror, and who is there that, does not admire his writings? He stands out in the broad pure atmosphere of originality unequaled and upproached as a chaste and ornate writer in his own peculiar style a master artist in weaving garlands of poesy into choicest bouquets of rhetoric. He is both poet and wit, tor more poems nave peen written in prose than ever were put into verse, and it is impossible to fol low him in his writings without being made to feel better for having done so. There is something so ennobling, so re fining, so elevating, and at tunes so touching, so tender, so sympathetic in what Henry Blount writes that the reader is unconsciously benefitted after such communions. There is just enouah of that subtle charm about it to mnke one desire more, and so when we heard that in all probability a col lection of Mr. Blount's best pieces the gems among his writings since he became editor of the Wilson Mirror will be made and given to the public in book form, we were glad and hope it will be done. We would give more lor the complete files of Henry Blount s paper than any work we know of, and if we can't cet that we want me nrsi copy of a book that shall contain the best reflections irom it. Tt. is complimentary to Mr. Blount that a publisher m cers and what is thought of the Asso tiation a home: The largest enterprise, and one that is attracting the attention of citizens of not only our own State but of our adjoining and several remote States, is ine oouxn- ern Building and Loan Association of this city. Locally speaking nut nttie was thought or said of the enterprise at first notwithstanding the very saiest ana oest element of our business men were at the head of it, but gradually its unfolding developments has nearly dazed the eyes of our city. State and country. To-day the Southern Building and Loan Associa tion with headquarters in Huntsville is the biesrest thing in the South. It is no longer an experiment but its great suc cess is an assured fact. It is a great pleasure to visit the elegant suit of offices now occupied by the Association in the handsome Halsev buildinc and see the svstematic workings of the business un der the auspices of its accomplished Sec retary E. H. Paramore. Manager Whit- ten also has his department working like a piece of machinery, while head dook keeper Brown keeps a quick eye on all surroundings.

Skilled stenographers, type-wri ters, and even phonagraphs are busily encracred in conducting the immense vol 3 c. . . . . , a nme of business that is being rusnea up on the company. To-day there is not a more systematic omce in tne united States than this. Every device to expedite business and economize time is adopted. To handle the great business ol this company requires brains of the highest order. There is not a saier man m me United States than the President, Dr. M. C. Baldridge; nothing escapes his eye or ear. Chas. H. Halsev. the successful merchant whose superior business quali fications suggested him as a man pecu liarly fit for the general . business man agement of the immense properties of the North Alabama Improvement Company, is vice-president, and Joseph Martin, who for years past has been the Cashier of the 1st National Bank is Treasurer. This Association is carrying the name of our city all over the United States and reflectingcredit upon it wherever it goes. There is nothing more calculated to do good for the country at large as well as Huntsville than this Association, and we congratulate our people that its home is in our beautiful city. Mr. II. 11.

And no one works harder to carry the ban nf tmde into new fields or to protect the interest of his patrons than Owen Davis.the iy wmi. mdcfaugable and persevering young ware- W aslnngton City houw;man who made such a brilliant record A short time ago it was announced that an agreement had been made be tween the loading cigarette manulac turers to withdraw their representa tives from certain markets and concen trate their interests at other points. For example: The. Dukes recalled their buyers from Henderson and elsewhere ! and confine their operations to Dur ham. W. S. Kimball & Co., whose purchasing headquarters are Oxford, make that exclusively their base of operation. Allen & Ginter confine themselves to Henderson and so on. It was given out at first that the ci garette men had simply agreed among themselves to stop fighting each other that is that only one should be rep resented on any market and nothing more was thought of it. But when the representatives of these several con cerns put in an appearance on this and other markets in the State last week and besran to confer among themselves, the speculators and order men thought thev smelled a good sized mouse. And when sales commenced and they were given to understand that if they bought any more cutters they would do so at their own risk, they not only "smelled a mouse" but actually found a whole nest full. The buyers held off and cutters dropped m price, but out side of this grade the bidding was us spirited and prices ruled as high as usual. Next day, however, cutters sold very well, and it is claimed that full prices will be paid even though one concern does all the buying and that without any competition on the ware house floors. As to that, however, it remains to be seen. This agreement has been entered into for the purpose of putting down the price of cutters. There can be no denying that, or the nianufacturers would not rule out the middle man, be he speculator or order buyer; and the simple fact that only one is leit on each market shows that, w ltn a ciear field and smooth sailing they know they can cret their stock cheaper than when there is strong competition to combat against. And as for paying all that cutters are worth whether they are forced (bv the middle man) to do so or not. that does not stand to reason. It is but natural that they should want to eret their stock as cheap as possinie, and with but one man to say wnat tne price ot an article snau oe it is nov likely the outside hgure will be piacea upon it. The local buyer may be dis posed to pay good prices always, but as soon as his house sees ne is pay ing too much for stock the word is passed and he must act accordingly This then is the phase of the matter as it presents itself to us. - J ITT The combination is composed oi m . Duke, Sons & Co., Durham, Allen & Ginter, Bichmond, W. S. Kimball & Co., Rochester, Kinney JBros., and Goodman Bros., JNew York, tne larg est cigarette manufacturers in the world, representing millions of dollars of capital. That nve corporations can form a trust, pool, combine, agreement, whatever you are pieasea to term it, for the purpose of putting down the price of any article, is a sad commen tary upon the laws of our land. The farmer is robbed and the country is made to suffer. It is a shame and an outrage, that these men, whose inter ests are confined to only five corpora tions. counting their wealth by the millions though they do, should have it in their power to fix the price of a thing to suit their own interests as it seems they are determined to do in this instance. It remains to be seen whether or not thev will be permitted to carry out their designs interrputed or not. If the law, the Farmers' Alliance, or any other power can defeat this iniquitous scheme the trust ought to be busted and knocked higher than a kite, and that at once. It is understood that Allen & Ginter were opposed to entering into such a compact and fought it. They were po litely informed by the other concerns that it was a case of life and death to them, they would be crushed if they did not, and must come in to save themselves. It is creditable to them that this is true and we are glad the interests of such fair, just and reasona ble people are to continue in Henderson. The speculators are informed that if they do not buy any more cutters and act nicely about the matter their stock on hand will be taken at a profit. But if they go in and fight the trust they will not only have to hold new pur chases but keep what they have already eot. This puts them in an awkward position and for the; present at least thev must keep hand's off and take things quietly until they can dispose oi what cutters tney nave. jot. . ii.
