One afternoon about twenty-two or three years ago, a debonnaire young gentleman wBlked into the editorial rooms of the old Louisville Journal and asked to see Mr. Prentice. He was clad in a handsome blue broad cloth coat of the swallow tail style, with smooth and guttering brass bat. tons. His trousers were of black doe skin, his shoes shiny, patent leather, his vest of some heavy buff material over which his coat was buttoned so that it doubled in front, showing an inch or two below the front of the coat; and in his hand he carried a rich looking soft hat. His hair was black, wavy and plentiful, and bisnpper lip was covered with a luxuriant and well kept mustache. Altogether there was an air ot elegant negligence about him. Tho man was over the medium height and build, and pre sented a card which bore the words; "George Francis Tnan, Civis Amen- canns Sum." Being then Mr. Pentice s amanuen sis and private secretary, I presented Mr. Tram to tho immortal George D., wit, poet and editor. Train seemed to be a little staggered. I presume he expeoted to see a large, imposing nnu severe man, ana he behelu a lean and slippered pantaloon.'' Mr. Prentice wa3 peculiarly a slouchy man then in his dress, and altogether careless of his personal appearance. Indeed I believo ho never had been "dressy " His hair, which had once been jet black, fell on his shoulders and even about his cheeks, well mixed with gray, and his whitening beard, which was also very long, and which covered nearly all of his face except tho nose, eyes and forehead, was tied np as close as possible with a cotton twine, and his ears wero staffed with cotton. Tobacco juice stained his vest, and ho had a habit ot using his fingers for n paste brush and of wiping them on his pantaloons. He had taken off his long, black frock coat nnd replaced it with a brown, somewhat ragged and altogether dis reputable looking old yarn pea jacket, or what was commonly called in Ken tucky a "warmns." On. the table near him stood his hat. This was a slouch with a tall crown, aud it an swered tho place of pockets in his clothes, which sort of receptacles he never used. Ho carried in his hat everything that other men carry in their pockets, and more too. Being unable to write more than a word or two at a time with his own hand, ho would with both of his trembling. writer's palsy stricken hands, make out to scratch memoranda of such things as ho desired to consider upon tho margins of newspapers, nnd these little bits ho wonld throw into his hat for f nture reference. He nsu- ally had the old felt hat about hnlf full of them. He also carried his packet knife, pencils, scissors, koys, etc., in tno nar, ana J. have orten seen him, absent mindedly. dron a well masticated quid of tobacco into it in stead of throwing the "old soldisr" away. Ibis was the famous editor, the author of "Tho Lifo of Henry Clay," tho champion and bosom friend of Prince Harry of tho West" dnrinir tho latter's glorious and brilliant career as a statesman, the writer of Closing year" and other errand poems; tho man whose keen wit, caus tic sarcasm, eloquence and terse dramatic force drove giants before him with his pan. Yet his quiver was filled with arrows of all size, from the quill of the eagle to that of the humming bird, and he could in dite a fierce philippic in prose, or tone his sentences to a sweet and tender song of sympathy or lore in poetry. irain exhibited his astonishment for an instant, unobserved by Mr. Prentice, however, and at onco the two fell into earnest conversation. Traiu was in Louisville with Anna Dickinson, Susan B. Anthony and a number of othor leading woman's ngnts women, nna was assisting in their suffrage crusade. After a pleas ant stay of a half an hour or so. Train withdrew and Prentice Dm. ceeded to dictate a pen picture of his iaio visitor. For many years Mr. Prentice had been forced to writo by an amanuen sis, being as before intimated, a suf ferer from scrivener's cramp, or writer's palsy, known in surgery as chorea Bcriptorum. He would walk tho lloor in n slipshod wav with hands clasped behind him, and in n some what piping voice, with a nasal twang, being also afflicted with catarrh, ho wonld dictate to his amanuensis, punctuating tho matter as he went. He always began his articles with what is known in typography as a "fist" a little cut of tho hand with the muox linger pointing, nnd thus his pen picture of Geortre Frnnm'n Train was like this: ("Fistf ZzW A locomotive that has run off the track fcommal turned n re side down (comma) with the cow catcher Dunea in a stump and tho wheels making a thousand revolu tions a minute (fall stop) A kite in the nir that has lost its tail (dash) a human novel without n hero (dash) a man who climbs a tree for a bird's nest (commn) out qn n limb (comma) and in order to get it saws the limb off between himself and the tree (full stop) A ship without a rudder (dash) a clock without hands (dash) an ar row shot into tho air fdashl a sermon that is all text (dash) a pantomime ot words (dash) the apotheosis of talk (comma) the incarnation ot gab (full stop) Handsome (comma) vivacious (comma) muscular (comma) as neat as a cat fcomma) a iudffe of the effect of clothes (comma) frugal in food and regular only in habits (full stop) A noonday mystery (dash) a'solved con. undrum (dash) a cipher hunting for a figure to pass for something (Bemi- coion; wim me urains oi twenty men in his head (comma) all pulliu-r in different directions (semi-colon) not bad as to heart (comma) bnt a man wuo has shaken nanus with rever ence (full stop) This is George Fran cis Train (full stop) Thus did Mr. Prentice drawapio tnre of the restless agitator whioh photographs him inside and oat, even to-day.

Y., The second day of the Millers' national convention, opened with a larger attendance, An effort was made at the morning session to form a flour trust, but no definite action was taken. The subject was discussed at length; but the general sentiment of tho convention was, that it would be preferable to have tho original central office where all griev ances and troubles arising from cut ting rates etc., should be referred. The' subject will como np again at the later session. INTERSTATE COIIMEECE. New York, June 13.

The modes of death's approach are various, and statistics show conclu sively that more persons die from dis eases of the Throat and Lungs than any other. It is probable that every one, without exception, receives vast numbers of Tubercle Germs into the system and whero these germs fall upon suitable soil they start into life and develop, at first slowly and is shown by a slight tickling sensation in tho throat nnd if allowed to con tinue their ravages they extend to tho lungs producing Consumption and to tho head, causing Catarrh. Now all this is dangerous and if allowed to proceed will in time cause death. At the onset you must act with prompt ness; allowing a cold to go without your attention is dangerous and may lose you your life. As soon as yon feel that something is wrong with your Throat, Lungs or Nostrils, ob tain a bottle of Boschee's German Syrup. It will give you immediate relief. A Large Parcaase of Fruit.
