C. Hayes will complete two full terms
of service as a loetub. r of the board of
commissioners of this county. lie can
point to the record he has made with
pride, and with tho self-con.-ciousiiess
of having opposed, every measure
which was not in favor of the best in
terest of our taxpayers. He has been
foarle-s in bis opposition to every
thing that looked to the increase of
taxation, and watched every ex pen i
ture of public money with as much
care as it it had been a personal mas
ter. Mr. Hayes was talked of as a
candidate for a third term, but there
being so many good men in the iklJ,
he concluded to withdraw his name,
and it was not formally presented ti

Mr. Zingtock, who, though rich, was
also thrifty, had had a chance to buy
this plant second hand cheaper than a
new plant of Hinalh r size would have

NEW ORLEANS POLITENESS.
Eij;;it .VIcu XIlp a Stranger to Find
Iluurie ut ?ilit.
"I was given a good example of south
ern politeness the other night," said a
gentleman from the north. "I had gone j
to the Comas ball and had agreed to es- j
coit a lady home. Fhe was also a stran
ger in the city and was stopping with
some friends on IJourhoii street, about i
three blocks the other side of the opera
house. As it was only a short distance
we decided to walk. I was of course
totally unacquainted with the street
and when wo left the lights of the opera
house I felt very much at sea. Th
Louses were dark and I could not see
the numbers, ami it was only hy the
number that the lady could identify her
boarding place, as she had only been,
"Aln ad of me was a small man. I
asked 1dm if ho knew where the num
ber was. lie answered very politely
that he did not, hut was going that way
and would help me hunt. He told an
other man in front of him about it, and
that man told some of his friends. In a
few minutes the gentlemen had formed
; n advance guard in out interest. We
vaiked calmly behind while they went
in front, on cither side of the street,
striking matches and looking' for the
number. There were eight of them, and
their matches would go off one after the
other. It was a regular flambeau parade.
I was overcome. 'Here it is,' shouted
an advance scout.
" We approached the house rapidly
and found the eight gentlemen standing
before it. It was almost with emotion
that I raised my hat and thanked them,
for tlu-ir efforts. 'Nothing at all,' they
said politely, and the entire eight raised
their hats and walked into the dark
ness. New Orleans Times-Democrat.

tiivat olhcers en the continent keep
their knowledge on that subject rigor
ously as a professional secret and as
sume as a certainty that all soldiers are
brave. They know very well, however,
that they are not, and when confiden

number it takes discipline, and severe
discipline, too, to induce them to face
shells unshrinkingly. American officers
have been known to acknowledge that
of their men, who are as brave as any
in the world, 20 per cent would run
away if they could, and in every army,
even ours, which a man enters only of
frcei will, there is a certain proportion
who literally cannot overcome their
fears. They aro stricken with a sort of
paralysis. The proportion is probably
not high in any army, the majority, if
in health, being able to do their duty
and having intense motives to do it, bur
neither is tho proportion high of those
who literally feci no fear. London.

McNish, in his classic volume on
"fcleep, " tells us i f a shepherd lad who,
wrapt in slumhi r, walked miles to tho
place where his flock was pastured,
waderl through a river and returned
home without waking. In another case
a lad in his sleep .sealed u precipitous

eagle's nest, which was found under his
bed in the morning.

other illustration of the occasionally
purposive character of somnambulism,
when, directi-d by its private secretaries,
the sleeping ego is apparently roused
from its couch and made to act the part
of a pure automaton. This individual
went to a writing desk which stood in
his bedroom, sat down before the desk
and wrote for some time. Then, replac

turned to he:L

Havo You Seen It?
Every big railroad in this country has
a freight car in its euipment bearing
tho number 12,'.j4, and yet I'll la.v
rcasouable odds that you may tram
this town over and you will not bo ahl
to find a man, I care not how much lc
has traveled, who has ever seen a oar
with that number. Among railroad
men it is known as the "sequence car"
or the "eitie-two-three-four-five car.'
Perhaps yeai never looked for it. I have.
For years in my travels I made it a
practice to get out whenever the train
stopped and take a look at the freight
cars in sight, and I have met drummers
who told me they did the same thing,
but never a glimpse did I get of that
car nor did I ever run across a man
who had been so fortunate. Try it. (Jo

across the river. You will find hundreds
of cars, but it's $10 to a pint cf peanuts
