showing in the electoral college.
The republicans have made some
gains, but they are far short of a ma
jority in either hous. The democrats
will have very few members in either
Tho populists have won a complete
victory electing Weaver electors, state
ticket, five congressmen, and a legisla

senator. Jerry Simpson was elected
by a good majority.

A Paring Robbery.
Last Friday nlzht. on a train near
Blair, Nebraska, occurredone of the
boldest robberies in tho annals of crime
n the west. G. W. Pollock, a travel
ing salesman for a New York house,
who was riding in tho smokirg car,
was approached by a stranger who drew
a mask over hU face, presented a revol
ver and demanded a case of diamonds
which Pollock had concealed inside his
vet. Not L'ettlncr It at once the robber
shot Pollock, thtn beat him over the
head until unconscious, tooic !fio,uuu

Labor Troubles in Europe.
On November 8, a great meeting of
unemployed workmen was held at
Tower Hill London. Afterwards they
'ormed a precession oand marched
through the streets. The office of the St
James Gazette would have been mobbed
if it had not been for a strong force of
police men wco teat off tho mob.
At Brussels tho capital of Belgium,
bands of workingmen marched the
streets shouting for universal suffrage.
The constitution of Belgium has just
been revised, and universal suffrage
was rot adopted. Suffrage was con
fprred on all householders, but not on
others. Thero are many workingmen
who are too poor to own -nouses, wno
are demanding tho right to vote.
Frightful Wreck in England.
Railroad accidents are not quite so
frequent in England as in America, but
they are equally frightful when thev
do occur. - On the morning of Nov. 2,
an express train running sixty miles an
hour from Edinburg to London ran into
a slow freight. Tho cars were terribly
smashed ud and immediately took fire.
Thirteen persons were killed and more
than twenty wounded. A number of

The Road Was There In War Tlmei But

The old National road as it wa
called, leading from the Eastern sea
board to the West and South and con
stituting the main public thorough
fare in the pre-railroad epoch, takes
part of its way through the hill coun
try of Eastern Kentucky, and along
its dovious and devilish route I was
jolting and bumping one day in a
buckboard when I met a "red brush."

WOMEN AS COURIERS.
"Alphabet suppers" are getting to
be quite a craze in some parts of the
country. The young people of church
societies arrange for an evening
lunch the name of every article of
which begins with tho same letter.'
Each member is instructed to provide
a portion of the feast and a forfeit is
levied against delinquents. A "B'
supper, for instance would include
bread, beans, butter, bananas, beer
(possibly), beef, brick cheese (by an
elastio construction of the rule),
