spider's invitation, "Won't yon walk into

applicable to the recent proposition of

During the great March storm the
schooner Eliza May was driven on the
reefs in New Hebrides with seventy-five
men on board. The first boat lowered
was wrecked and four men drowned.
Those who remained on the ship were
saved. A number of recruits became
panic stricken and started to swim
ashore. Those who escaped tho break

whites and forty-seven blacks were lost.
Tuesday morning of last week Dan
Casey, living near David City, shot and
killed Mrs. James Riordan, while 6he
and her son were going to town in a
wagon. He admits the killing and said
he ought to have killed tho whole fami
ly. The two families have adjoining
farms, have had trouble in regard to
trespass by cattle, have had several law
suits, and had had a fight the day before
murder was committed, Casey getting
the worst of that.
The state of Georgia is fast forging to
the front as probably the first of all the
great slave states to free itself from the
blight of an institntion that tended
to deaden every fine sentiment and
cloud the sky of every business enter
prise, and it is free labor, engaged in
assisting capital, to develop the natural
resources of that section. When the
south wakens to tho facts of the modern
world, and finds that it is almost a cen
tury behind the times, and that, by
dropping the prejudices of the past, and
grasping the levers that move the mod
ern world, it can become equal to the
best, the day of prosperity for all that
section will have dawned.
If there ever was a year when the

It is true that "a hint is as good asn

LEADERS IN LOW PRICES.
One Year A so.
Values on beef and shipping steers
have appreciated nearly one dollar in
value over corresponding time last year
while cows and heifers of good quality
have gained 50 to 73 cents in the same
time. Beef and export steers were sell
ing one year ago on this market at $3.75
to $4 with an occasional load of heavy
export cattle selling as high as $4.10. A
year ago today eighteen steers, 1,018
pounds per head, sold at the latter price.
Choicest cows and heifers sold as tops
in their line at $3.20 and S3.30. While
as to the ordinary run of butcher's cows
there is not a great deal of difference.
A review of the feeder market a year ago
reads as follows,: "Good feeders sell
quite readily at $3 while those that have
been corned a little sell as high as 3.25."
The top price on hogs a year ago today
was $4.50 and lMrttotii $4.45. Just nlxmt
a half a dollar higher then than at pres
ent. The receipts were light, less than
at present, and light weight grades were
selling at top prices. Desirable mutton
sheep were quoted a year ago at $4.30 to
$4.75, or about $1 lower than at the
present time. It will be noted that
cattle and sheep have advanced in price
the past year while hogs have depreciated.--!

The Coming Metlioil.
The Australian system of voting, tried
Tuesday of last week in St. Paul, Minn.,
for the first time, receives the unquali
fied approval of the Pioneer-Press of
that city, which says:
"It was a flawless success. There was
no rush, and no heelers to annoy tho
voters with their stickers and importu
nities. The system which seems clumsy
to many, when its multitudinous condi
tions were perused on paper, resolved
itself into the most simple manner for
t he voter. On its first trial in St. Paul
it worked as smoothly as if the citizens
had never otherwise exercised the right
It is undoubtedly the best method

struck a chimney and tore it to pieces
down to the stand and seemed to divide.
It also tore the mop boards, plststering,
and outside sheeting loose, besides mak
ing several holes in the building. It tore
a stove pipe all to pieces, just flattening
it out. A curious thing connected with
this was that one joint of the pipe was
found in the room below. To get there it
must have gone out the room it was in,
through another, down a stairs, and into
the other room. This could be done and
was, but is rather queer. The bolt went
into the cellar, tore a brick out of the
foundation, and broke a wash bowl out

Variety in Tree.
There is an art in planting trees to
produce a proper effect as much terhaps
as in the architecture of a house. A
tree may be ever so beautiful in itself,
and yet, placed it out of harmony with
its surroundings, loses its value in this
regard and may Income positively
ugly. A little attention to this matter
will 6how tho trath of the statement.
To produce tho best effect there should
be a proper attention paid to grouping.
A grove or single row of trees all of one
variety produces a dead uniformity, tame
and uninviting to the eye. Tho finest
trees of our climate will loose their
beauty if thus arranged. Variety is the
secret of good effect. It is a matter that
costs nothing, and yet makes a yard dr
grove so disposed worth twice as much
as are the same kinds througbout.'for
purposes of ornamentation. Not one
person in a hundred, perhaps, can give
the reason, but all will be drawn in
stinctively to prefer the one properly
planted. This principle should be ob
served in street and yard planting where
ornament is one of the chief considera
tions. A yard with one variety of trees
or a row similarly arranged along the
streets is like a piece of music with only
one note; while any kind of trees ar
ranged in any fashion is better than no
trees at all, it is desirable for many
reasons that the best effect possible be
produced with them, especially so since
it costs no more either in money or
care. Uncle Lewis,

Senator Quay has presided over a very
important meeting of the National re
publican committee here today. One
notable feature of the meeting of the
committee was the entire absence of the
wrangling which our democratic friends
have been of late so industrious in tell
ing about. There is harmony among
the members of the committee and they
all think that the republicans can hold
their own if not increase their majority
in the house of representatives by hard
work between now and election day,
In the house today, the five-minute
debate on the tariff bill, which is to
continue eight days, wsis begun. At its
close the vote will be taken. Some very
strong speeches were made last week in
support of the bill, but as important as
the subject is none more important
the audiences have been small both ou
the floor and in the galleries. There is
but little entertainment in a tariff
speech, no matter how able tho speaker
The election of a successor to the late

a second allowance of $50,000 for the

Representative La Fayette, of Wiscon
sin, made a telling point in favor of a
protective tariff when he said: "The
democrats denounced the republican
party when in 1883 it placed a duty on

has stimulated the production of wire
nails, and today they are being sold at 2

Gen. John C. Fremont was so over

The house has passed a bill giving
Mrs. Parnell, mother of the leader of the

The Rowell federal election bill which
has been approved by the republican
caucus has been introduced in the house.
It is almost the same as the Hoar bill
now pending in the senate. It now
seems certain that a federal election law
will be enacted at the present session,
though a few republicans in both the
house and senate are opposed to it.
