On Wednesday, the twenty-third
session of the Cous'titutioaal Conven
tioin wrangled over three hours on
- several small amendments of several
sections of the legislative articles rela
tintg to the abolishing of sp)ecial legis
lation for t he incorp)orationt of cities,
a section p)rovi tmg that the Legisla
ture 4ihould, in che year 1898, submit
to the people the question of holding
a constitutional convention and like
wvise everv twentieth year thereafter,
allowxing a majority vote to call the
convention. It was voted down by a
vote of e~. to 17. Before the rececss,
the co.nvention adopted a section p ro
hibiting the inter-marriage of a white
person having any negro blood what
ever. The matter wai re-opened and
Jug razer offered to further amend
by adding the words ''to maintain the
status of many families in this State
tainted with negr" blood." Some
strong speeches we::e made and finally
the sectioni with the amendment was
recommnitted to the committee. George
D. Tillmnan made a powerful speech
maintaining that instead of the p)hras~e
"any negro blood" the words "one
eighth uegro blood" should be used(.

ROAD TO HAVE A SINGLE RAIL;I
Novel Project for a Line on the Canadian
William E. Seetley, a reidznt of Brainerd,
Minn..but now in the Painy Lake gold cour:
try. has in proc^ss of completion a projel
to build a railroad from Tower is Rainy
L-Vke City. on the Canalian border. ovar a
route 1'hich an or;llnary railroad could
sear elv be ran. But the ro& planned by
'Mr. Seeley will not be anu orlinary one in
any s-nse oj the word, and his plans and
sreoiications are a1readv attracting consid
erable attention from railroad men and ma
chini st. oener -liv.
The track of Mr. Seeley's road will rvnsist
of a sincle rail instead of two, and the pa
pers of the Wc;t are alrealy referrin- to
it as the on-olege : road. The areat advan
taie clairnpd for this road is its cheay)ness, it
costinz Jess than one-half as much as a re,
ular double track, standard gauce road to
constrar-t and operate. A row of piling is
driven. and the sincle rail is laid on too of
thiA pilinz, seven or eight feet from the
aroin i. The ears are to be constructed'so
that th, 1loor is about fIve feet below the
i-eel i the rail, and each side of the Cars
wili 10 loadcd as nearly equally as nossibly,
so that the veh!cle will ride easily and
Tha the cars cannot be unset will be sesn
at a a ance, as the wight In the'a will be
br.ow i ie rail. The piles are to be set ten
or twel A fet anart, and will be eanpe-l vith
hresvy w ,o1n hPans. upon whIch the sinzle
rail will .-st. It is claimed by Mr. Seel-y
that such - road has already been operate-d
succesefull.: d that he has demonstrated
bv modeis that -he plan will be a success in
this oase. One of the rent needs of the
northern rart of MinneqotaIs arailroa i from

of those places are more than enthu;aiastic
over the proposed line.

GREATEST MAB LIVIN.
Unique Daily LAre of tbe Tnfant HeIr
to Great Britain's Throne.
T.e greatest baby in the world is
now about one year old. The name
of this baby is Edward. He is Hi.i
Royal Highness the Princ, Edward of
York, heir to the tbrone of an empire
on wbich the sun never sets, and he is
now cutting his teeth.
His Royal HighiLess lives either at
York House, St. James, London, or at
White Lodge, seat of the Tecks. A
description of his personal appearance
is now on file in the royal archives of
the Tower of London, and he has been
photographed 109 times. These de
tails are not trifles. They are a part
of the history of the British Empire.
The Prince has blue eyes. His hair
is not scanty by any meanf, and. he is
ratber fat, as will be seen from the ac
companyin,; picture of hin, which is
the one hundred and ninth of Eis
Royal Highness, and the very latest.
He has a nursery of the most severely
plain character, and, althonh his
little life is one long uninterrupted
ceremony, etiquet,e requires that the
plainest of baby accessories shall sur
round him. He is under the ttelago
of one Mine. Buika, whom allEngland
knows as the confidential companion
of the Princess May before her mar
r:age. This Mle. Buika has natur4lly
an enormous responsibility,
His Royal Highness is already a
General, a Colonel, a High Sneriff and
a patron. He is a Keeper of the Seals
and an Imperial Usher. He is already
entitled to put L. C. M. J., C. I. S.
I. and ever so many other letters after
his name, and he is a memoer of the
House of Lords.'
When the baby awakes in the morn
ing he holds a levee. Tne royal code
says so. His aiganess will be attend
ed by the lady in waiting, who takes
his comnands. This means that she
will wash and dress him. H e must
never have anything u him that is
red-anything, that is, in the shape of
clothing. His attire inusi be invaria
bly white. This is btoause he is a
Prince of York, and thc-r3 is a royal
rule connected wit!h the Wars of the
Roses that forbids his assumption of
tne red until he is five years old. He
may not wear black shoes until he is
three, and in public a sash must in
variably be around his waist. Under
no circumstances ishe to be addressed,
even playfully, by anyone except his
par-ents. Qaeen Victor.a herself is not
at liberty to say "yon" to him. It
must always be "His Highness seems
well," or "His Highness sleeps." In
fact, it is His Highness this and His
Hi!zhness that all the time.. -
Only a blood relative may hold him
in ber arms, with the exceptioa of
Mile. Bnika, who has received a royal
patent 'or the purpose. Even the
pbysician who attends him must re

Some ants keep slaves, we are told,

COWS WlTH AN EAR FOR MUSIC.
An Elulish writer has publishe
somec curious observations on the effects
of Inusical sounds ou amimals. A few
of those relatia-g t0) oveU and cows
will boof interest.
"Opposite to our house was a large
fleld in which twelve cows were put
during the summer months. One day
a Germau b ind began to play on the
road which divided the house from

the other end1 of the field, but no

but, upon the musicians going away,
the animals followed themi as well as
they could on the other side of the
wall, and, when they could get no fur
ther, stood lowing piteously.
So excited did the cows become
that some of them ran round the fieldi
to try and get out; but tinding no
outlet, returned to the same corner
where they had lost sight of the band,
and it was some time before they
seemed satisfied that the sweet sounds
were really gone.
"I have often noticed the power
music has over oxen. The other dlay

after which they ate little all day and
