The Eider Duman.
Of bis Shoridan-like dealings with
tradesmen an anecdote is told. During
a scarcity of ice a neighbor of Dumas
sent to a dealer for some and was told
that tho limited.stock on hand was kept
for tho use of thoamous author. Then,
the gonflemah sent again and bado his
servant ask for the ice in the name of
M. Dumas. The plan succeeded.o Tho
jco was given, and the servant put down
the money on the counter. "Ah," cripd
the tradesman, "giv'e me back that icel
Now I know that you are not from M.
Dumas. Ho never pays ready money."
"My fathr," said M. Dumas file,
"onceo told me that if he could bortion
out a now life he would be a handsome
woman till 80, a victorious general
from 30 to 00 and a.cardinal in his old
age." Dumas, as he related this par
ental desiro, glanced toward Rossini and
added: "I should prefer to close my life
as an illustrious composer. Mon cher
Rossini, when you enter a room, the very
lacquer pronounces your name with
pr ido as he announces you."
Thou turning to the company he con
tinued: "Announce, for instance, M. le
Duo d'Auniale and Signor Rossini at the
same mnonment and see on whioh side all
heads andti all hearts will incline first.
All eyes would be on the great musician
who created'11 Barbiere de Seviglia.' "
Atid then we all filled our glasses with
armagnac of the vintage of 1811 and
drank the health of Rossini. The old
composor did not rise, but his face broke
out into voluminous smiles Re-he shook
the hand of the author of "La Dame

Pompoilan Business Notes.
A number of business announcements
are to bo found at Pompeii, that brisk
littlo city to whose daily life the energy
of Vesuvius has lent a kind of immor
tality. Here we get a large number of
miscollaneous inscriptions doaling with
natters of daily life, announcements of
forthcoming gladiatorial games, edicts
of magistrates, wine sellers' attempts to
captivato customvrs, rewards for lost or
stolen property, houses for sale or to be
let and other things of that sort.
We learn from one announcement
that a glass of wino could be got for 1
as-about 3 farthings-while for 4 asses
ono could drink real Falernian. Another
inscription informs us that a denarius
-about 7% penco-was paid for wash
ing a tunic, and the date, the 18th of
April, is carefully recorded by the writ
er. Whether she was the laundress or
the owner of the tunic iaust be left un
decided, but it seems at least that she
was in the habit of marking up her
washing account on the walls of her
There are several such inscriptions on
the same wall of this particular house,
all dated-the 20th of April, a tunio
and pallium; on the 7th of May, an ar

Why this invitation was address

Indeed, there is no objection, ex

with rapid strides to the end c
our journey. The reform part;
wvas inaugurated, with rare oxcop
tions, with pure intentions, an
should have been as lasting'jis tb

now threatened with 'dire calamity

ever, are alive to the situation an<
knowv full well who assisted then
in bringing about the revolutio
which resulted in giving thenim
"government of the p)eople, by th
people and for the poouplo."' Iti
true some of those who were earli
est toilers in the reform vineyar(
and who gave their time andl mono
freely for its success, have bee
ignored and neglected, even b:
those who have shared niost in th
grand speculation for spoils an

or expressions of dli sati sfactio
on the part of t hoso noglected an

howlings and muttorings of ti
craving malconutents can ho her
throughout the land. They ar
clamorous and savage for reforn
full of desperation andl denouncin
everything and everybody who d
not yield quick obedience to thei

passions of the people shows the
they know full well their only poi

they can create and the quantil
of filth they can disgorge.
There is nothing wrong with ti
reform movement; it will be ke)
intact by the patriotic innnene<
that dominate the State regardless
of selfish dictation or -mperted
hirelings, who are prostitutes to
principle and are always for sale
p cheap to the highest biddor. It
would be exceedingly mortifying
e if I thought all these years of toil
and trouble had been spent in vain,
but relying upon the loyalty and
wisdom of tho people, a conscious-'
r ness of security tranquilizes the
mind, and we have no fears but
what at last the consummation
devoutly wished for will be realiz

ostly endeavoring to do their duty,
but preserve on, relegating to the
rear all whose selfish ambition is
rumount to the general good of
-our comlron country. The situa
Iion is .critical enough at best,
without supplementing our dan
ge with ridiculous propositions
and dogmas too exaggerated to at
tract a sensible thought. We are
a part and parcel of the greatest
nation on earth, and are expected
to contribute our share to its wealth
honor, prosperity and its remotest
destinies. To accomplish these
things we must be in sympathy
with all its institutions and pro.
gress; othtrwise, we can not ex
pect to inherit any of the munifi
cence or distribution of its immense
wealth. We are already suspected
an .oharged with being in league
with conspirators to undermine
and destroy the public credit.. Of
courso thoro is no foundation for
this chargo, for tho reformers are as
joalous of the public credit, both
Stato and national, as any Class of
citizons in the country.

- It Wasn Irby Who Fahznted.
s WASH INGTON, D. 0.. March 20.
" --Governor Tillman says he had
o a satisfactory conference with
,1 the commissioner of internal
-revenue to-day, and an amica
g ble adjustment to the contrever-|
f sy with Collector Townes was
y reached. The liquor which Ool
.lector Townos seized in viola
i tion of the dispensary act is to
a .bo turned over to the State au
thorities, and herea fter the State
,and federal officers will endeav
- or to work together in harmony
I1 n tho execution of the law. In
, cases where the national laws
. have been violated the State
i authorities will not interfere
r with the collector in his efforts
a to punish the guilty parties. In
a cases where the State laws are
,e set at defiance the State officers
a will seize the liquor and dispose
of it according to the State law
,on the subject.
y So much for the official char
n acter of the governor's sudden
y visit to Washington. When
.o Governor Tillmnan comes to
d Washington even his closest
it friends and followers regard
n his visitation with suspicion.
d HeO always manages to agitate
o Lho South Carolinia colony and
o sots them to guessing as
d1 to what is his real mission. In
o the present instance there are
i, numerous rumors afloat as to
g why ho came here at this time.
o Uoero is the way his mission is
r explamned in an afternoon paper:
-"Governor Tillman is here, pri
e marily to confer with the offi
t cials of the treasury department
.over the recent seizure by an
e Internal revenue agent in the
u Pamnetto State of liquors claimed
,y to by under the control of the
governor's dtspensary assistants
ie There Is some politics in the
pt governor's journey mnorthwarc
as also. Senate Btle's term e*
pires on the 8d of neot 3 '.i
and It is generally believed that
Governor Tillman has been cast
ing Onvious glances toward .a
seat on the front row to the.
right of the vice president. 1. .4
has heard, it is understood, that
the South Carolina co'ngrA&'
sional delegation instead' of be.
ing favorably disposed toward
his candidacy is not united as
cohesively as imagined, but
that Congrossman Strait, who I
is an alliance democrat and
Talbert and McLauren, who are
straightout, are in favor of
Senator Butler's re-election.
However, Governor Tilhman As,
not. the only statesiman 'lho
comes to Washington and mixns
whiskey and politics, and he
will probably reach a final if
not a satisfactory understanding
on both subjects before his mis
sion is concluded."
The governor while here meet
George H-. Hubbell, manager of
tho -Mill Creek distilling coin
pany, of Cincinnati, who sup
plies the State dispensary with
some of its liquor. It is said
that the governor confided to
some of his friends here that he
iB confident he will succeed Sen
ator Butler, and also that John
Gary Evans will. be the next
governor of South Carolina. In
conversation with your corres
pondent the governor was
particularly reticent. He is
suspicious of newspaper repre.
sentatives, as well as of his pol.
itical followers. Men who sus
pect others of being unreliable,
need watching.
A further evidence that the
govcrnor's visit here had a pol
itical flavor is shown by an in
lorview with him published in
the Baltimore Sun to-day. He
ws asked if the report was true
that it) would be a candidate
for the United States sonate
against ISenator Butler.
"Most assuiredly, I shall," he
repliod. I shall not be a candi
date for ro-nomiination or re
oeMctionas governor of the State.
Whether there will bo other can
didates besides General Butler
and myself I can not say. Pol
itics is so uncertain that it is
difficult at this stage of the con
test to say if there will be othcir
