THE METROPOLIS OF THE MIS SISSIPPI VALLEY AGAIN PRESENTTS A A 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 ia programme for 1893 that In brill f iancy and variety will be difficult to im i prove upon.

Paints which peel or scale have to be removed by scraping; or burning before satisfactory repainting; can be done. When buying it is important to obtain Strictly Pure White Lead properly made. Time has proven that white lead made by the "Old Dutch" process of slow corrosion possesses qualities that cannot be obtained by any other method of manufacture. This process consumes four to six months time, and produces the brands that have given White Lead its character as the standard paint. "Southern" Collier" Red Seal" are standard brands of strictly pore Lead made by the "Old Dutch" pro cess. You get the best in buying them. You can produce any desired color by tinting these brands of white lead with National Lead Co.'s Pure White Lead Tinting Colors. For sals by the most reliable dealer! in Paints everywhere.

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. Barker's premises. 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 up." i "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 tuckered out" 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 stairs. 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 anguUh a he stood there. 8ha realised what life actually t at that moment, and it aoemod very cruol to her utioa young, Uj loved, prvlty and hopeful; now old, unloved, wrinkled, and with nothing to with fun No wohdur that hfuffer4 At latt the turned hor bavk on the ternnl timuutaint .ia iiaugd wbtU live wr i IHid, and whtl youth get, and loe dcpurlvd, aad grv wure d ig - an I t.iw tt.a cwui upon th wall; itra'a coat - an oM binit' V ort lunj a id an tv'y; aid a b'J tnottd brlnitiud toit hot The woman tout rimer.

Nobody wanted ir. lint what a relic it aould bo to her of Ben! only she could not ask for it She could take it hide it under her shawl all foldod fiat as it would bo and keep it forever. Berj's Lat her Ben's hat! Why, sho had a right to it And Miss Camiola obeyed tho im pulse, took the hat and hi I it neatly away. It sea mod. almost as though it were a theft; still, it would not be wrong to take it Whon she came home. Mrs. Black told Mis Camiola tho walk had done her good; her cheeks wero quite red; but she went early to bod that even ing. She bolted hor door and un dressed in a hurry. ihe put out the light 1 hen she felt for ber shawl in which the hat lay folded, aad took it in her arms. A certain perfume that wns always connected with Bon's hair was faintly noticeable an odor ot bergamot. It brought back tho past vividly. It almost seemed as though Ben's head rested on her heart She clasped the old hat close and kissed it Oh. Bea" she whispored, "I was always ready to make up, but you were rich and I was poor; and I was proud. On. Ben! on, Bon, Ben, my darling!" And for hours the Jay awake the Camiola of tho post in the darkness, which blotted out the change) in hor face, and fell asleep ntlastund dreamed 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 were found. 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 furniture ' 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 hapa It often seems so, too, to Camlola, Farmer's Voice.

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 young, leaving tons of meat for the porcupine, tho fox, the weasel and tlio hawk, taking away only the hides, which later form tho network of enowKhocs. Kvon did not timber land explorers find tho meat and view tho slaughter, the thousands of pairs of new snowshcos of iiiooho and caribou hido put upon tho market cuch season would tell of tho destruc tive work of theso Indians, which, unchecked, will soon give to the mooso tho position in natural history now occupied by the American bison a name, and a nams only. 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 mons of her own property. This was in February, i?ay tho Boston Herald. it should bo bono in mind that tho mooso of Maino are la tsoino re spects like tho reindeer of Green land. T hoy are so hot blooded that they givo birth to thoir young upon tho snow or oven upon tho Ico. In 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 a cow, Gilford started in pursuit, and for two days kept hot on tho trail, often finding warm beds which tho now jadod and norvous animals had just vac a rod. : It would appear that this femalo wai barren, had groat log power aud some knowledge of tho law, for sho niado a great struggle, keeping well ahead of tho hunters, who unfortu nately hud tho wind with them all tho timo, getting finally acrcsa tho an cient boundary lino ir.toCanada.from which territory Gifford dared not cxtricalo , b.vv without documents other than WincheNtor rifles. There fore ho turneit back upon Maino soil to look for new tracks and bettor hick. IIo was rewarded the next day by coming full upon a cow mooso lying down, which ut onco aroso and charged at thj party in a zig-zag way. ' Gifford was much surprised at the action of this cow.

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. . .
