Christmas week 1892 may be re

In ih hibtorv of the county. We
sometimes have colder weather for a
lnv or two at a time, but rarely ever
for so long as a week. The ther
mometer has been as low as 12 d&
crees above zero, and it has been in
that neighborhood nearly all the time
except about noon yesterday and the
lav before. The outlook now, how-
ever, is for better weather.

Iu the following characteristic let
ter. written to one of bis ardent ad
mirers who insists on forcing him
into the United States Senate, Car
mack says that he is neither a candi
date, nor a dark horse, nor yet in the
bands of his friends.
In spite of his protests, however, a
large part of the State press, led by
the brilliant young editor of the
Memphis Scimitar, are growing more
and more clamorous for his can
didacv. Carmack is the idol of the
young Democracy of the State, and
they respond with great enthusiasm
to the call of the press. No where
else is the admiration for his genius
more ardent than in Maury, bis
native beath. aud should he enter
the list the friends of his youth
would be his foremost champions
From his letter, however, it ia evi
lent that if "Fate would have him
kiner. fate must crown him, without
his stir." He says:
"If I have been pileut on the subject
it has beeu for no other reason tnan
that I did not wish to be place t in
position of treating the matter more
seriously than it deserved, or of
flattering myself that I was in any
body's wav. You remember the
fable of the fly and the ox. The arti
cle in the Scimitar was a high com
nliment from a high source, which
very gieatly appreciate, as I have all
the kind words from the press and
i,artial friends, but I have never for
one moment flattered myself that my
nomination was a possibility of the
situation. I bave not the least doubt,
from mv knowledge of the situation.
that the contest for the Senatorship
will be fought out with the three
candidates now in the tt-ld. and
think it ought to be. I believe the
fight will be short, sharp and de
cisive. At any rate, I am not, lu any
sense, a candidate, not a "dark
horse," not even in the "hands of my
friends." I think you overestimate
the importance of my saying any
thing on the subject, and I am a little
bit afraid that a formal declaraiiou,
takincr mvself out of a race I wf
never in. mav seem to be in the na
ture of a solemn and elaborate joke.
The Herald appreciate very
much the kind words "Richard" has
to say of us in another column. We
appreciate also the promise he makes
to write more frequently in the fu
ture. But "Richard" is mibtaken in
the Idea that we are "spilin" for
another fight. We are very muob
like these ex-Johnny Rebs you may
see any day in and about this town
If they had it to do over again they
would do the same way, but they are
praying the Lord to let the cup pass.
The Herald made the fight for
Democracy, and the fight agaiutt
Democracy was made personal
against the Herald and its editor;
the enemies of Democracy under
took to overthrow the organ of De
mocracy. And as Richard says, it
was "the ngut or its lire," ana "very
few know the sorrows we saw." But
the Herald all the time knew it wa
right, and having an abiding faith
in the people .we believed-the right
would prevail. Now that victory ie
ours it is a sweet reward to us to hear
from all parts of the county, "well
doue.thou good and faithful servant."
If the occasion presents itself again,
the Herald will again be tiue to
Democracy; but we hop the occa
sion is far from us. We want the
wanderers to all come back, and let
the lamb and the lion lie down to;
gether. Let's stop fighting; let's
bury the hatchet; let by-gones be by-
goues, and let good feeling, brotherly
love aad Democracy be our common
heritage iu the future.
Some officer or the law at Nash
ville has violated the commonest in
stincts of humanity. He did It last
Saturday when he kuowingly thrust
an iusaue woman on the train ano
started her to Columbia without any
sort of guardianship or protection.
We do not know who that officer
was. We do not care who he was.
But whether he was the sheriff or
deoutv sheriff: Chief Clack or one of
his suboidinates. judge or jailor, he
has committed a brutal outrage on
humanity. The poo. woman was le't
to the chauce care of strange paesen
cers. and if they had not been more
kind than the officers of the law. she
would have lost her life between hen
and Nashville.
And besides.be:ng cruel to the un
fortunate wom.au, it was a fraud on
this community for them to throw
the burden of her care on our officers
She is no more a citizen of Maury
than of Davidson. For the sake ol
common decency and humanity the
guilty officer should be found ou
and made to suffer for his villiany
The kindness aud gentleness with
which Sheriff Ragsdale, his. depu
ties and his family Lave shown the
unfortunate form a bright, contrast
bo the brutality with which, sue was
treated in Davidson. -

Failures in Middle Tennessee, eo
far in 1892, amount to 138 in number
with liabilities of $1,073,970. The
contrast between this year aud 1891
is exceedingly marked. For the
same period in 1891 the failures in
the same territory numbered 284,
with liabilities of no less than $4,914,
913. This certainly shows a marked

home, took up his Bible and by in

chapter and pronounce the most
difficult words? He ia truly a

He Says the Electoral College W a Miser

Washington, Dec."23. "The Elec
toral College as it now stands is a
miserable fraud," said Represent
ative Springer to day. "and the idea
that all of the votes in the Electoral
College from a great State like -New
York should go to one party by a
matter of a hundred or two hundred
votes is a great fraud upon the e'ec
tors of the country. Some of the news
papers misapprehend tbe proposition
which I submitted on tins subject
Tne iKDUlar vote contemplated ia
confined to each State. The States
will have the same number of elec
toral votes that they had in the elec
tion of President aud Vice President.
There will be no persons running as
candidates for electors, but th? elec
toral vote of each State will be appor
tioned among the several candidates
according to the number of popular
votes eacb received in that State, the
odd votes going to the candidates
having the largest fractious. This will
Drevent the vicious practice of gerry
mandering and gives xact weight to
the popular vote which each candi
date receives in the State. It will
nationalize the Presidential election
and render contests of the succession
next to impossible. Politically it
would give effect to the popular will,
limited only by the just representa
tion whicn each State is entitled in-

Mr. Springer said that the propo

I For the Herald.
I suppose I should "come to the
front" when such ladies as Verna and
several others whose judgement J es
teem have of late been calling for aome
thing from my pen. I have no excuse
to oiler for treating the Herald in a
shabby manner, neither have I many
uice promises to make for the future,
reirardless of the "salt and the pepper'
held in reserve by our Culleoka friend.
Verna tells us that salt has lost its
strength. I expected that. "It is
henceforth pood for nothinir but to be
cast out and trodden under feet of
men." As I have a mighty tender
"soot" in mv heart for the ladies. I will
make a genuine good promise for tbe
new year. I will promise to write
' -no re, wear out several pencils, uso up
tablets and frequently call on menu
Lander for stationery. And a these
are Christmas times and almost all
hearts are made lighter by the pres
ence ol neighbors, distant menus, goon
liuners and a universal good will to
ward each other, it seems irood and In
season to offer a few encouraging words
to the Herald and its brave editor.
A careless observer does not realize
how many bushels of grief it took to
tverv square inch ot land during "the
year now almost gone. In my judge
ment, it has had the hardest light of its
life: it has been a "band to band" con
flict until a grand a glorious victory
jrowned its laudible eliorts, ana now.

Curlou and Costly Contrivances That
Contribute to the Smoker's ComTort.
New ripes and Cigar Holders Ciga
rette Novelties.
Special Correspondence.
New York, Dec. 15. This year the
holiday presents in smokers goods are
especially unique. A lady the other day
went into one of onr leading cigar stores
and gave an order for a cigarette holder,
amber, pink veined onyx, diamond and
ruby sparks price, $375. Another pre
holiday order is from a vrell known resi
dent at the Gilsey House, and consists
of a brier bowl and an amber stem fif
teen inches long price, $180. There not
beincr a niece of amber that length in
the world, three pieces have to be special
ly cut to fit, polished, etc.
Another well known man at the Ger-
lach has lodged an order totaling nearly
$ 1,600 with one firm for special lines,
and the great representative of the Astor
family has bought his Henry Clay and
Golden Eagle cigars at $500 per thou
sand for his friends, and a special stock
of his own favorite brand at seventy
dollars per thousand. This is not from
parsimony, but simply because the cigar
is more to his personal taste.
A novelty is the hat cigar rack, which
is a spring of steel, having clips to hold
six cigars, and which is carried in the
hat. To offer a cigar, take off your hat,
But fastidious smokers will scarcely
patronize it, owing to the odor of the
inclosed air in the hat being communi
cated to the fine cigar the most deli
cate of all' vegetable products and the
most easily spoiled. Another curious
item is the cigolette, or cigar pipe, de
signed to be a combination of pipe and
cigar, it being a cigar with the end
curved up like a pipe, and this idea is
brought forward with the claim that it
will obviate all chance of surplus nico
tine reaching the mouth. The inventor
and maker is one of our large cigar man
ufacturers, and he has put $200,000 into
his venture to push it as a holiday nov
elty. Other holiday cigars are conspicuous
by their absence this year, the general
trend of trade being, according to one of
our best posted men, in the direction of
fine goods rather than the old style
tawdry packages. Instead of stocking
special new brands, the dealers are of
fering new and finer sizes of those
brands which have already been stamped
with the approval of their customers.
Appreciators of handsome cigar boxes
may be gratified this year with gold
boxes, richly chased aud engraved with
the "Judgment of Paris," etc. price,
$500 or others made of a section of ele
phant tusk, with glazed bottom and
moistening attachment, heavily mounted
in gold, $300.
Pipes are the strongest line this sea
son. They are bewildering in their
numbers and styles. The most popular
shape is the English Carlton, or bulldo
shape, which, the leading dealers say,
sells in the proportion of about six out
of ten, the others being fancy briers and
a few meerschaums. Ten years ago if a
dealer had asked five dollars for a pipe
the customer would have thought him
a fit inmate for Bloomingdalel Today
he will keep in stock pipes varying from
three dollars to eighty dollars, and it
does not excite a remark.
Among the highly artistic pipes the
masterpieces of Herr Koch, of Metz, still
hold their own, and they are unsurpass
able. This year a Yale enthusiast or
dered a dozen of these pipes to be plain
bowls, charred black and then smooth
polished, while upon the front was re
produced the Yale college arms. Other
handsome designs are a dragon's head,
the scaly neck being charred black and
polished, each scale tipped with gold
leaf, the open mouth having the gums
of the natural brown of the brier root,
and the tongue of the blood red of the
brier root when polished, the teeth being
of gold leaf price, thirty dollars. Others
are decorated in mosaic patterns, the
varying colors being produced by the
varying heat of hot irons and polishing,
for no other pigment or color than gold
leaf is used in these artistic Pompenau
And here it is as well to point out that
the "brier" root of these' pipes is not
brier root at all, but bruyere root, tht
French name for the sweet heather or
heath root, plenty of which grows in
Virginia, and which is now being sea
soned and experimented upon by our
pipe firms, who believe with the write i
that the present craze for nne brier
-nines has come to stay.
This year the holiday goods in pipes
run to cunningly contrived cases, wincn,
holding a good deal, take up the mini
mum of room in the pocket, the con
tents varying from one bowl and two
stems to four bowls and ten stems, all
interchangeable and all of different ma-
terial. Some of these sets cost the smoker
as high as eighty dollars. Aluminium
has also been seized upon as a pipe nov
elty, and there are bnlldog shapes made
of this white metal having amber
mouthpieces and a lining of meerschaum
to the bowl, just half as heavy in the
mouth as brier or meerschaum and
more durable, if one does not object to
its somewhat glaring appearance.
The great novelty of the pipe trade
ia the Colimbus egg pipe, specially de
signed for busy smokers, and is a pipe
that wherever laid down, on the desk or
table, will always hold the bowl orifice
uppermost, and not spill ashes or fire.
The name comes from the Bchoolboy

was to catch the eye and nose' before
smoking. A handsome mixture of our
famous golden belt of North Carolina
tobaccos was perfumed with tonquiu,
attar and geranium, delicately blended,
and in the case of one old time leading
smoking tobacco, now dead as far as de
mand goes, citronelle was used with a
lavish hand. When smoked the burnt
essential oils ruined the tobacco, made a
stinking pipe and called forth the pro
tests of cigar smokers. This is all
changed. Most leading dealers have
special mixtures prepared for them con
taining nothing but tobacco and a modi
cum of New England rum for moisten
ing purposes. It is this evolution in
manufacture,' Introducing smoking to
baccos worth one to two dollars pet
pound, which is the secret of the present
popularity of the pipe.
A curious invention is the combina
tion of a cedar lead pencil witk a pocket
cigar lighter. It looks like a pencil,
writes like one, but slide up a tiny but
ton, and, pfestot it is a taper ready lit. A
more substantial pocket lighter is in the
form of a watch, which, by pressing the
stem winder, opens the front of the case
and exposes the light.
Cigarettes are also in line with a num
ber of novelties, the most striking one
, being a walking ftick -with a ciga
rette machine concealed in the handle.
When the crook is lifted off there is seen
a tiny funnel and a hollow tube; round
this is placed a cigarette paper; loose
tobacco is crowded into the tube; when
full it is easily withdrawn, and the to
bacco is left in the papva ready for smok
ing. There is still :nother machine
which, without any outsidte adornment,
may be taken as the pocket cigarette
machine par excellence. It consists of a
divided cylinder three inches in length
and about a quarter of an inch in diam
eter. The upper of the two longitudi
nal halves of the cylinder is dravn back,
the lower one' .filled with tobacco, the
upper one replaced, the loose edgs
trimmed off and a piece of cigarette pa
per rolled around the cylinder, when it
may be withdrawn, and the cigarette is
Still another, very good, but slightly
cumbersome, is a flat box holding the
tobacco and having two lids one to
hold down the tobacco and the other to
make the cigarettes. The upper ' lid is
of metal, having two openings in it,
through which runs an endleas band of
silk ribbon three inches wide, which,
when the lid is closed, is operated by
levers set in action by the closing of the
lid. To operate it open the upper lid,
place a cigarette paper an a portion of
tobacco spread over its entire length in
the lower opening, close the lid, and the
cigarette is transferred by the levers and
the endless band to the upper side of the
lid ready for use.
Another improvement in cigarettes is
the doing away with gum or paste to se
cure the closing of the paper necessary
to obtain the requisite draft. This is
done by a mechanical twisting and in
denting of the edges of the paper, which
holds it firmly in position. Another idea
is a "ventilated" cigarette, obtained by
perforating the paper wrapper in a pe-
culiar way, which is not detrimental to
the draft, and which insures cool smoke
to the consumer. Still another novelty
is an imported cigarette having a clip of
paper affixed for the smoker to hold it
by, thus avoiding the stained fingers of
the "cigarette fiend." Cigarette holders
are in force this year and range from
to $ 150, according to decoration.
Trick goods, such as the old plush cov
ered sets representing ships, banjos, lo
comotives, drums, etc., are out of date
the only two ideas I have seen being a
log cabin of fragrant weichsel wood
which, when raised for inspection, pops
a cigarette out of the chimney; and
somewhat similar idea for cigars is a box
made of fine olive wood, which has a
lever at the side, which, every time it is
pressed down, delivers one cigar and re
cords the number left m the box.
There are numbers of people who ob
ject to the stale smell of smoke in their
houses, but who do not know how to
prevent it. For this purpose a neat but
tiny lamp has beeu invented, the mere
burning of which in a room completely
deodorizes it. either after smoking or
for the purpose of reducing "the fra-
errant cloud" durin? the operation. It
burns 95 per cent: alcohol through
cotton wick, which, when lighted, heats
a platinum holder, so that after the
flame is blown out the heat draws up
the alcohol and volatilizes it, the odor
of tobacco vanishes, and the cloud in
"smoker" ia sensibly diminished.
The Pressure That Kills.
You have all heifWl how William
Henry Harrison, grandfather of the
present president, was killed by the
office seekers. You have all heard, too.
how other presidents have struggled
under the pressure and the annoyance of
office seeking till they concluded life
was not worth living. The greatest trial
President Harrison has had in the White
House, and he has had many, has been
the persistence of the place hunters and
his inability to do anything for them.
Private Secretary Halford said the
other day that the president had come
resolutely to the conclusion that if he
were to serve a Becond term he would
take steps to rid himself of this burden
by relegating all the minor appoint
ments to the bureau officers and cabinet
ministers. That is where the business
belongs anyway, and that is where i
t ill go in the naar future.
