Saturday nominated Colonel A. J.
Cropsoy for mayor. Thu colonel is an
old-timer and lipiircd conspicuously in
the memorable Hitchcock senatorial
campaign. Ho was also idctuilied with
the trouble of ex-Governor Duller , the
particulars of which are now ancient
history. Latterly ho went to Colorado ,

Yesterday the saloon men of Lincoln
raised a purse of several hundred dollars ,
to bo used in the spring election which
occurs hero in about two weeks. They
propose to fight on a good financial basis
nnd elect a liberal mayor and a high li
cense council if it takes every drop of the
cratucr in the shop. They are , however ,
one and all opposed to increasing the li
cense to f 2.000. This increase seems to
tncot with the B. & M. railroad officials'
approval , and will , it is understood ,

THE COLORS BADLY MIXED.
A ninck-ftnd-AVhlte Bribe-A Btarttlnc
Arkan an Monstrosity *
St. Louis Globe-Democrat : There is
on exhibition InNorth St. Louis the
greatest living curiosity of the nineteenth
century. It is a child five months old
the daughter of full-blooded Ethiopians ,
bul so peculiarly marked ns to oxclto the
wonder of ( all who vUlttho place. The feet
and ankles of the little girt are of a dark
copper color ; Ihe remainder of Ihe lower
limbs are as while as Iho skin of any
child born of white parents. Around the
upper purl of Iho abdomen is a peculiar
ly shaped while belt , while the rest of
the body , as well ns the face , Is
of the same color as the feet. In the cen
ter of the forehead and extending n little
way on the ecalp isiv white mark resemb
ling an inverted "L. " At UK upper end
of the "L" is a portion of the head cov
ered with hair very much in texture and
color like very fine wool. The rest of
the head has for its covering Iho ordinary
black wool of the neuro. The child is
perfectly formed , healthy and actlvc.and
in Its general features shows the African
blood which courses through its veins. It
vrris born the Oth day of October last nl
Alma , Ark. , and is Iho youngest of three
children born to Isaac nnd Mary Hollo-
well. The parents are each about thirty
years of age , black and ignorant. They
nave for the lasi two months traveled from
place to place exhibiting their little ono.
to the gaze of tbo curious , and receiving
in return whatever the visitors desire to
give. Hollowell , when asked what sig
nificance was attached to the peculiar
marks on the child , Indlcat6d by his re
ply that ho thought they indicated that
the little ono bore the imprints
of the Almighty's Jhand , nnd
wus destined to have a wonderful career.
Ho explained them as follows :
"Well , do brown , stockin's is do brass
on do Lawd's tcet ; do white legs is do
marble pillahs ; do bolt means do girdin'
up do lions ; an' do white liar is do white
wool on do Lawd's head. "
Some time before Iho child was born ,
Mr. Hollowell said , the parents happened
to refer ono day to the subject of peculiar
children and wondered what they should
do should ono be born to them such as
they had hoard about. The mother after
ward dreamed that she had given birth
to a child of uncommon appearance , and
which grew up and was transported to
heaven nnd enrolled among the angelic
hosts. Tha dream mndo a strong impres
sion on her , and she is strong in the belief
that n brief sojourn on earth will bo ac
corded the little ono she has now with her.
Evidently they are bound to muke the
most of it while it remains with them.
Countless visitors go to see the curiosity ,
and both the parents are carctul to re
mind them to "leave a dime for the
mother. " The negroes who visit it are
greatly impressed with tha appearance of
the child , nnd seem hardly to know
whether to pity or envy the parents.
A Shrewd Gambler "Wins a AVlfo
Throng ! ) the On mo.
Philadelphia Record : Sylvosler Shivoly ,
who died of apoplexy at Scranton , in this
state , on Saturday , was born inVilkes -
barre fifty years ago nnd was n college-
bred man. It is thought by old gamblers
in New York that he has lett nearly
1500,000. Ho won his wife by n game of
poker on the Mississippi in the summer
of 18GO. It was on the River Queen and
the game had been going on for some
time , and the stakes had run into the
thousands , for there was no limit in these
days. Ono of the players , after drop
ping his last dollar , drew his chair back
from the tnblo , and going to the side of
the boat whipped ont his derringer and
put it to his head. But ho was not quick
enough , for Shively had him in his grasp
before ha could fire and ho led the man
into tbo cabin. There the stranger in
troduced Shively to his daughter , a
beautiful girl of twenty. They say It was
love at first sight. Shively restored the
man's fortnne he had won , married
the daughter nnd promised to
give up gambling forever. He
settled down in Scranton and was
living like a gentleman when be was
called to Harnsburg on business during
a session of the legislature. Ho sat into
game and won 126,000. Shivoly was a
member of the famous "Bucktail , " n
Pennsylvania regiment that enlisted in
A. Battle Between two Hats.
Quitman , Ga. , Free Press : A privileged
character about the court house is a very
large white rat. His rats hip is very quiet
and peaceable , except when ho catches
sight of another rat of the ordinary
species. This happened the other day.
An enormous brown fellow , with a tail
about a foot long , was. caught and turned
loose in the same room with the white
one. They eyed each other for a minute
and then the white rnt made for the in
truder. The fight was brief and bloody.
For a few seconds there was an indis
criminate mingling of white rnt and
brown rat ; first one on top and then the
other , but thq white ono soon fastened his
long. sharp'teethMn the chest of the other
and held on wjth a death grip until the
otter rolled over dead. ' '

It Is Fact
well established that consumption if at
tended to in its first stages can be cured.
There is , however , no true and rational
way to cure thia disease , which is really
scrofulous ulcerntion of the lungs , except
through puritying the blood. Keep the
liver in perfect order and pure blood will
be the result. Dr. Plerce's "Golden Med

dound does all this and more ; while it
purifies tbo blood it also builds up the
system , strengthening it against future
attacks of disease. Ask for Dr. Pierce's
