'HIGH CARNIVAL AT ST. LOUIS.
THE METROPOLIS OF THE MIS
SISSIPPI VALLEY AGAIN
Programme of Fall Festivities That For
Brilliancy and Variety Outshines the
i Carnival Cities of the Old World.
Paris, the most magnificent city on
either continent, bos for ages held the
proud titlo of "the premier, carnival
city of the world " However during
the last ten or twelve years an Ameri'
can rival of no mean pretensions has
contested for that high honor, and to
day St. Louis holds what Paris so re
luctantly rallnquisbed, the title of "the
carnival city ot the two continents."
Not content with the successiui exm-
ibltlons of previous years, the Autum
nal Festivities Association Lrroged

f iancy and variety will be difficult to im
i prove upon. The first of the great

qualities that cannot be obtained by
any other method of manufacture. This

BEN'S OLD HAT.
Miss Camlola Brown, sitting at tho
front up-chamber window, cutting out
calico short waists for Mra Black's
five little boya laid down her shears
for once in her life, and. with her el
bows on the sill watched the people
as they walked or drove past and
entered in at the gates of tho la to Mr.
Poor Benjamin!" she t-igbed. "I
wonder whether up in heaven ho re
members the day when he took me iii
and walked mo atl over the house?"
" -The things are old-fashioned,
Camiola,' he said to me; 'but they
were mother's and before that they
were grandmother's. I like them,
but say the word and I'll new furn
ish.' 'No. Ben,' says I "what your
ma likes to have I don't want to alter.
I like it ..It: it's good stuff,' and then
he kissed i- v "
Miss Cami lla felt for her handker
chief as she said this to herself. "And
we stood at the garret window and
looked off toward the mountains.
We'rs going to be happy as ever
folks were,' said he," here the tears
began to fa.lL Oh, Ben," she sobbod;
"to think wo quarreled after that,
and didn't speak when we met But
you never married and I refused two
offers good one.'. Ben, I guess we'll
meet up there sometime, and make
"Why, Miss Camiola! you've been
a-cryln'l" said Mra Black's loud
voice, lust then, in her ear. Camiola
started guiltily, but she was too can
did to complain of a cold or the sun
in her eyos.
"Well I have cried a little, Mrs.
Black." said she, "You see, we used
to be friends, Mr. Barker and I and I
knew bis ma, and remember all that
furniture, and it seems a sin to sell it
and tear down the old house, and
maybe root up tho lilacs and straw,
berry shrubs, and perhaps cut down
the trees. It was almost like home
to me in Mrs. Barker's day."
Well, it must seem a sin to any
one, and more so to you, Miss Cam
iola," said Mrs. Black. "But don't
you want to go over and see the place
and what is going on? You might
as well just take a day or the rest of
it I'm in no hurry and you look
Mrs. Black was kind in her way and
felt a certain pity for Camiola, She
had heard that Camiola was once en
gaged to Mr. Barker and might to-day
have been a rich and important widow,
instead of a poor lonely seamstress.
Go along. Miss Camiola," she
added. "I know you want to."
Did she want top" Camiola asked
herself; and heart answered her yes."
She would boo tho old homo onco
more; see the old furniture; and when
she could get a chance she would go
up to the garret and stand whero she
stood with Ben that day. Her old el
bows should lean where her young
ones had pressed; she would look out
over the mountains, and fancy herself
a girl again, with Ben beside her and
his engagement ring on her finger.
And Miss Camiola thanked Mr.
Black, put on her show bonnet with
the washed ribbons, and the shawl
tbat had been so goad once, but was
faded and even mended now, and
walked up the road and turned into
the iano, and entered the Barker gar
den. The neighbors who saw her nodded
or spoke, but they were selling tho
tall clock and there was some excite
ment Camiola stood at the door
awhile and listened to the bidding.
Deacon Hickory got the clock; Mrs.
Amoa Mole llMjclawfootsiudboni-tl. A
Jewish lady from the village bought
the trunks of women' clothing, sold
unopened, for next to nothing. Ann
Barnaby. the washer-woman, got the
tubs and irons cheap in a lot, and so
on and so forth.
To Camiola it all oemed tragic
Fbe wont upstair whore people were
poking the beds and pillows, and ex
amining tho to'llet s-ts and curtains,
and she began to mount the garret
A her bead roso above the floor
she gazed eagerly about her. From
the ratters bung some withered herbs
and some rope of onions. The
trunk had loon carried down and an
old bureau. A coat hung upon a
peg; over it a hat Camlola went to
the window. Mia would not cry, for
the mutt face those people down-ttalr
again; but tho uttered little moan of

of young Ben and his perfumed hair,
and beard him once more say they
would be happy together.
She awakened suddenly, in the early
dawn, and came back to herself. She
dressed herself; smoothed her prim
bands of hair; pinned the cushion and
the sheath of scissors at her side; and
looked at the hat Of. course it must
be hidden away; and she spread a
newspaper on the bed in which to
wrap it paused to look at it again.
The Inside of the hat presented it
self. The piece of leather which lines
the crown looked curiously thick. She
touched it with her hand. Under It
was a long paper folded into a nar
row slip; she drew it out and saw that
something was written outside. Tak
ing the paper to tho window she saw
that these words: "The Last Will and
Testament of Benjamin Barker."
At this Miss Camiola began to
tremble from bead to foot but she
was a daughter of Eve. softly and
reverently Indeed she opened the will;
but she did oppn it and read it
through, and whon sho had finished
she crept ir.io bod again and lay there
sobbing for a long while; for in it
she had found strange things. Some
of Benjamin Barker's money had
been left to the hospital, some of his
land to the church, and there were
legacies for many people; but the
homestead, with all its furniture,
garden and farm land, and an income
on which sho could live luxuriously,
were bequeathed "to Camiola Brown,
spinster, in memory of the love I bore
her all my lonely life. " .
No wonder poor Camlola wept
But Mr. Black soon found out' the
cause of Camiola's agitation, and Mr.
Black was a lawyer; the witnesses
Why Benjamin Barker had put it
In his hat lining no one knew. He
often carried papers there. Perhaps
he moant to leave It in safe keeping,
but ho died very suddenly, with hat
and coat on, as he was about to drive
out But the will was found and was
all right Nothing bad yet been
taken away. . The money was re
funded to tho purchasers of the old
The young ncphow had a tolerable
legacy, and made no fuss whatever,
and one day Camiola entered the
homestead as its mistress. It was a
strange ending to her love story, she
thought She was here at last, but
how! It almost seemed to her as
though some spiritual union had taken
place between her soul and Ben's; and
in the keeping-room, on a peg near
the door, she hung his coat and bat.
There they hang always, and to the
stranger who sees them, nnd looks at
the mild old lady rocking in the great
chair as sho sews or knits, it seems as
though the master of tho house were
within up-stairs somewhere, por

than tho money valuo of any dead

protection save around cor tain lum

But up along tho waters of tho St
John river dwell tho St. Francis and
Toblquc t:-lbo of Indiana, nnd yearly
and uumolostcd they raid tho moose
a .d cuibou of Maine, killing tho
males as well as the females with

unchecked, will soon give to the
mooso tho position in natural history

But' Maine wanted a cow mooso
and calf, and wanted them in a legal
way, and therefore passod a law al
lowing hot' to tako tho iwo sped

in February, i?ay tho Boston Herald.
it should bo bono in mind that
tho mooso of Maino are la tsoino re

they givo birth to thoir young upon

tho woedfj of Maine In early March
tho ponds, lalros nnd rivers are
sealed with three or moro foot of ice,
and at such times any man whose
musclos are hardened for a tramp
can tire and run down any douken
of tho forest of Maine, save birds.
Concluding from tho sizo of some
trucks thatone of theso mooso must bo

for two days kept hot on tho trail,
often finding warm beds which tho
now jadod and norvous animals had

It would appear that this femalo

knowledges lliti Cora and
Wasiiisotox, Aug : The feature
of the silver debate ia the bouse yes
terday was the speech of Mr. Pence of
Colorado, who aald, iu premising a
very humorous (speech, when he had
come to Washington he had expected
to find a warm corner and a comfort
able tcat In the old McCreary inn, but
ho hod been shown tho door, anil on
inquiry he bad discovered that the old
hostelry was being rnn on the Euro
pean plan. He had been told he wonld
receive a cheerful welcome because be
bad been told McCreary had in 1801
oecn tendered a vote of thanks by a.
Kentucky convention for his advocacy
of the free coinage of silver. He (Mr.
Fence) waa allied to Kentucky by mar
riage, and be had believed no could
rely on Kentuckians; but he had been
compelled to telegraph to his
people or rather bl wife
had that he had been fooled.
He had been taught by Voorheea,
Cooper and Bynum; and right well.
they had taught htm. Laughter, i
lie then turned ma attention to nr.
Bynum and his allusions to that gen
tleman nut the house in a roar. It
was not necessary for him to read any
number or speeches made by that gen
tleman under tho prior administra
tion. He would content himself with
referring to what his own eyes had
witnessed. He would not go back into
old hbtory, He would go back only
to October, 18UI, when Air. uynura ox
Indiana, Mr, Black of Pennsylvania,
and Mr, Wilson of West Virginia were
advertised to make a tour through the
country for the purpose of organizing
Democratic clubs. How warmly the
people of Denver had treated them.
They had been treated to bed and
board, J laughter.
Then Mr. Bynum bad addressed the
largest audience that had ever assem
bled in Denver. In the Rockv Moun
tain News was a stenographic report
of his speech, in which he said: "I
have always been in favor of the free
coinage of silver. I have voted for
free coinage from the time tne ques
tion has been before congress, and I
will do so every time the question
comes up." He (Mr. Pence) trusted
tho teacher would not rebuke the
scholar when he ventured to tell him
the question bad now come up. Ap
plause and Laughter. . .
Mr. Bynnin replied to the strictures
made upon him and upon his seeming
inconsistency but he did so in a jocu
lar vein, and with evident appreciation
of the Colorado man's humor. He ad
mitted he had spoken in Denver in
1801, and that he had addressed one of
the largest audiences he had ever
faced, lie had had in the fall of that
year the pleasure of making a tour of
the continent with several other
gentlemen in order to establish Demo
cratic clubs, Everywhere they had
been hospitably received, and by the
timo they reached Denver he might
have been "smilingly and jocularly"
irresponsible. When they arrived at
Denver they were shown the sights of
the city and a more magnificent city
he had rarely seen, Ho had admired
the bcautica of tho city and had asked
"What means all tins?" The reply
was "It means silver, it is built on,
silver," "But,", replied he, "I am
making a tariff campaign." "But you
can say something about silver," and
he had done so. He confessed his sins
and asked forgiveness. Laughter.
Pence retorted that he understood
the excuse the gentleman had for his
utterances that night. He hoped the
gentleman would not have to plead
any such excuse for his vote on the
Johnson of Indiana, and Avery
spoke in favor of repeal, and then the
house took a recess until S o'clock.
