will be proil tabic for it to adopt party 
organization. It is not now a lack of 
party, but a neglect of duty by our 
legislatures that has stimulated our 
growth. While we have been feeding 
the world, other forms of industry 
have been perfecting an organization 
which give them an undue advantage, 
partly by what was left undone in 
their interest. They have simply 
ken advantage of a law of human

ithout the direct intervention of a

The railroads, banks, manufacturers

Strong as it is, the Grand Army of the

taking care that she should lose nothing 
in the way of money. He represented 
himself to her as inexhaustibly wealthy, 
and she took him at his word. But the 
fact is, after he had spent a hundred 
thousand or to, and rained his father 
and sister, as he tells me, there was no

"Well, apparently not. She seems to

him and pay back the mo:iey that he 
has spent on her. I have begun to fall

The prima donna withdrew her hand 
as unobtrusively as she could, and asked 
her mentor what objection there ... 
marriage if people loved each other- 
He replied that if they loved each 
other what was tho use of marriage? 
She rejoiiif 1 that for two persons to 
love each other was for them to feel that 
they must belong to each other forever, 
d that marriage was simply their open 

ciganuj.iion. the more often would he 
find it nec essary to change the object of 
his affections. To do so was not in op- 
position to true morality, but in obe- 
dience to it; but i-ocietv. consulting sul- 
ly its own selfish, had arti- 
ficially and arbitrarily nmde such nets 
criminal, and had thereby bewildered 
and mortally injured myriads of inno- 
cent human beings. 

To this tho prima donna replied that 
lovo could grow inimitably without dan 
ger of ever outgrowing its object. Tho 
need was not of more to love " 
more. God, who was love 

tered out an entreaty to be lifted to a 
sitting position, and when she clasped 
her strong young anus about him to ac- 
complish his desire she found herself un- 
awares entangled in his embrace, and 
before she could extricate herself she 
felt his lips o-.i her cheek. 

She placed him in the attitude he 
wished, and then got slowly and wearily 
to her feet, her face pale and her eyes

dition and custom. Therefore she 
thought marriage was not so much an 
injustice of society to the individual, as. 
a demand made by the individual that 
society l e the witness and a voucher of 
his covenant. 

But Joeelyn hereupon pointed out that 
s covenant always implied a binding 
promise, involving penalties if it were 
broken; that this again implied distrust 
iu the power of pure love to hold its own, 
and that any outside pressure brought to 
bear upon a passion essentially so treu as 
must tend to promote the very re- i

Joeelyn ought to have known the futil- 
ity of argument with a woman about u 
subject in which the emotions are main- 
ly involved. Even if he had demon- 
strated his proposition and obtained her 
assent to it, he would not have been a 
bit nearer his goal. A woiuim overpow- 
ered by passion will act iu direct oppo- 
sition to the most elementary dictates of 
reason; and the same woman will not I

—and by curiosity. 

After tho above discussion it became 
vaguely apparent to Joeelyn that the 
prima donna was drilling away from 
him. She parried his attempts at famil- 
iar intercourse gently but iffeetivelv. 
He had in fact done her a service against 
his own interests. He had assisted her 
to formulate her instinctive recoil from 
the view which ho sought to inculcate.

something of himself ; he now began to

boast of his size as another reason for

Arabian. Spreading a white cloth on 
tho floor he sat down with lus back to 
the wall, and, turning to a member of 
the party, he asked for the loan of n 
rupee, which he requested should be 
given to one of the ladies present. This 
done, tho conjurer told the lady to hand 
it back to the L "

it, and then the conjurer said to him, 
"Are you sure that it is a rupee?" 
"fes," replied the gentleman. 
"Now close your hand upon it," said 
the Arabian, "and think without speak 
iug of some country in America. Now 
open your hand and tell me if the coin 
is not one of the country you thought 
of." The gentleman opened his hand 
and found a Mexican dollar. He said

for you to have your oyes. carefully ex

your glasses and think that you are all

glasses whenever you are using your 
eyes, but this is not enough. You 
must, in order to keep them in good 
condition and to bo able to rely upon 
thorn, have them examined ns often as 
you do your teeth.

goes to his dentist once every year, per-

weaker, or if they have not changed in

While Mr. J. W. Prowitt, one of the 
most prominent promoters of the new 
warehoocc, was leaning against the 
elevator railing, a crash was heard, 
and the horrified onlookers saw Mr. 
I'rewitt fall backward down the 
shaft. AVhen he was reached the un- 
fortunate gentleman was found to be 
in a dangerous condition. A physi- 
cian was at once summoned, but said 
that the injured man was beyond med- 
ical aid. His wife was at once ram? 
moncd from the Fifth Avenue Hotel, 
here the couple boarded. 
Mr. Prewitt fell a distance of four- 
teem feet, but his position was such 
when he struck the bottom of the 
elevator shaft that he received fatal 
injuries from which his recovery was 
considered hopeless Irom the first. 
The railing, against whhh he was 
leaning, was a very low one, reaching 
but little above his knee. In 
crowd that pushed about him, 

to have lost his balance, and, 
crashing into the frail railing, was 
thrown into the shaft. 
Mr. Prewitt is a resident of Clark 
. but since his participation in

to that city. He has been living there 
for the past two months, residing at 
the Fifth Avenue Hotel. 

Mr. Prewitt was born and raised in 
this county, and was a brother of out 
friend and noiglilior, W. If. I'rewitt, 
am! of Mrs;  J. Davis Iteid. He waf 
the owner of one of the largest and 
most valuable farms in the nclghboi 
' of Winchester. Ho leaves a very 
large fortune and is said to hare been 
the wealthiest man in the now tobacco 
warehouse. When the movement w 
started among the farmers, he waso: 
of the most conspicuous workers. I 
was a member of the Board of Direc- 
tors and of the Executive Committee. 
His children are D. G. and Nelson 
Prewitt, and Mrs. Heury Nelson, of 
Lexington. The younger son is atten- 
ding school at the University of Vir- 
ginia, and he was summoned home by 
telegraph to meet his father's remain* 
in Winchester.

on the Gulf was a tall, 
rather heavily built man, whoso evo 
was dark and koen and who wore a 
fine gray imperial. He was a strikingly 
handsome man, witli his military cur 
riago and his strong face. But his 
manner was grave and chilling and ho 
made few acquaintances. Staying at 
the big hotel was a man w1k  hi his 
early life had lived in the went, but 
who shortly after the war had married 
a southern widow who owned a augur 
plantation on the Mississippi river. He 
know MaJ. Wolts, the stranger, mid ou 
the evening when the major died told 
tho following story to n group of men 
who sat on one of the hotel verandas: 
"When I flrstsaw Wells ho was a depu- 
ty United Statesmarslit-I In Nevada. He 
was so cool and dstttoc that ho seemed 
absolutely indifforent m to death. He 
would calmly walk i.-iicm barroom filled 
with reckless gamblers nnd desperate 
outlaws, pic'; out his man. scarcely 
saying a word, and ninrch bun out the 
door without phi?;n;; his hand on a 
weapon or holding liiiuself in readiness 
for an attack. 

"Coming down the street one day I 
heard rapid tiring, aud looking up saw 
Wells standing behind the rtump of a 
tree (the stumps still stood i;i the 
streets where tho trees had been felled) 
and three meu blazing away at him. 
Wells was as rigid as a stutue, his face 
a little white., but unmoved, lie was 
a sure shot with n revolver, nnd I ex- 
pected to see him draw bis six shooter 
and drop his men i:i one, two, three 
order; but ho did not stir. 

For a moment the bullets rained 
around there, and then tho sound „f 
tho shoot in,' suddenly ceased. The 
three men hud emptied their revolvers. 
At thut instant, quick aa a flash and 
with a tiger bound, Wells leaped before 
the three men, and whipping out his 
revolver with a swift stroke of his arm 
covered them. They all stood stock 
still. The whole thing took less time 
tlian it does to draw a good long 
breath. Then he grimly walked the 
three of them off and saw them securely 
locked up. 

"1 met him a fc«w hours later as easy 
and unconcerned as if lie had never 
heard the crack of a six shooter. 

'"Good heavens, Wells,' 1 said to 
him, why did you lot those follows

shot? The chanees were fifty

"There was a quiet smile on his lips

Birkenhead . who had been to Hawarden 
castle in a four wheeled carriage, ex- 
perienced a remarkable accident one 
evening in crossing the Dee at Queen's 
Ferry, a mile below Hawarden. The 
ferryboat could not be brought to the 
side of the stream, it being low water, 
and, the party leaving the carriage, the 
coachman arranged to drive across, re- 
fusing the assistance of the ferryman to 
guide him. In midstream the horse 
sank into a deep pit, and the carriage 
followed and began to settle down in 
the sands. The coachman was in a 
perilous position, and the boatman 
rowed to his assistance and brought 
off. The horse was also out away 
from the shafts and brought to land. 
The carriage remained in the water, 
the tide rolling over it till it again re- 
ceded, when ropes were attached and 
was eventually dragged out. — Bir-

He rose again from his chair and took 
another cigarette from the box on the 
low bookcase. Then he went to another 
place for a match, which he scratched 
und. t in ath the mantelpiece. Then he 
lit the cigarette and threw the burnt 
end of the match in the fire, after having 
shaken it rapidly to and fro to extinguish 
it. She watched him half absently, 
thinking what a good fellow he was, 
how quiet, how honest, how kind, how 
quick of apprehension. But through 
him, beyond him, in his place she was 
seeing another figure, winch she never 
hoped to behold again in reality. Oh, 
the perversity of human affairs! The 
goodness that we meet with is not the 
goodness that we want; the evil that 
happens to us is not the punishment of 
our evil! 

Wallie glanced at her the 
smoke of his   igarette with » sympa- 
tic tie int. rest, half sad, half humorous. 
The hoavv fur lined cloak that she wore 
thrown back on the chair; her head 

throat, her 
black dress revealed the lithe beauty of 
her figure; there was a soft dimness 
about her eyes; a little strand of bright

walking up and down the floor, while 
the former stood with his back to the 
fire, looking as high shouldered and dig- 
nified as iiossiblc. 

"I am here," said Wallie pleasantly, 
after the formalities were over, "unof- 
ficially, on behalf of the lady who has 
been singiug the past e

"Mr. Dinsmore," euid Randolph, Sr., 
twisting his eyebrow sternly, "you are 
perhaps not aware that the lady is nnder

"I have known for some months that 
she is your daughter, Mr. Randolph, but 
no one is aware that she is under your 
especial charge." 

"1 do not understand you, sir:" saiJ 
Mr. Randolph fiercely. 

"You told mo several weeks ago, in 
the presence of my friend Bellingham.

your charge of h ir has amounted to

This was said quietly, but with 
tain warmth and emphasis that abashed 
Mr. Randolph a good deal. He turned 
red, and opened his mouth once or twice, 
as though to »i eak, but no words came. 

Hereupon Edward Randolph put in his 
oar. "Whatever may have been my

"Your family affairs are liable to be

"Perhaps Mr. Dinsmore will explain

I've brought oil her. Sho hay replaced 
the money I spent, aud not a cent of it 
will I ever touch, if I have to starve in the

women in this world whom I love and

punishment like that, it's not your 
shrieking and stamping that can make 
me feel any worse," he said, looking hi 
father in tho face. 

At this point WaUie thought the tim 
was come to interpose. He had Lm 
sympathy with the father than with th 
son, whose chief crime, i,fter all, soemw 
to be that he had lost his head and hi 
sense of persomd responsibility for love'

both of thorn should bo arraigned f

connection with his army expe- 
rience OoL Pat Gilmore, the famous 
musician, tells this story: "You see we 
musicians who march to battle are 
really the only ones wlio are unpro- 
d. We, of course, can handle no 
weapons and are at tun mercy of bul- 
lets. To our duty of furnishing the 
inspiring strains to the marching sol- 
diers we have another one, tliat of 

on streteliers. In one of the bat- 
tles we were on our way to 

cians. The man hurriedly replied : 'Oh, 
nothing at all. I'm only wounded in 
one of the fingers of my left hand. I'm 
off to havo It dressed Jiud will return 

"But the light of inspiration had 
some to us. No unprotected march for 
us when our angels had thrown such 
a good chance in our way. We seized 
the man and said, 'Oct on the stretcher. 1 
•No, mo,* he answered; 'only one of 
my fingers Is hurt. I can get on faster 
nyaeh*. Why stioukl I be carried ? Do 
I walk with my hand? Let roe go.' 

"We merely repeated the order, 'Get 
on the stretcher.' He didn't heed us 
and again we said more emphatically, 
'(Jot on the stretcher. ' Seeing lie was 
obdurate, we made a bodily seizure of 
hhn and put him forcibly on the wait 
trig stretcher. 

"Then we beat a hasty retreat with 
r burden. We carried lum down a 
kj hill to a place of safety, and we 
»k good care to place our wounded 
aoUier in a distant place of security. 
How were we to help it if the battle 
was nearly over when we returned to 
the field* I always tell the generals

Hyden, the particulars of a very 
bloody fray in Clay county, In which 
George Bagley, of Leslie county, \ 
ttilled. The killing oeeured the 
inst., at the Miller Gilbert farm 
Redbhd. There was a sale at the 
place at which 500 people had a- 
-emblcd and a great deal of liquor 
was on hand. An old grudge exist 
ed between Bagley and Ahijah Na 
pier. There was a pitched batth 
the like of which perhaps has no 
occured since the war. The frienth 
of the above men to the number of 30 
on a side, fired 300 shots. It is 
thought that Wm. Wages, of Perry, 
fired the fatal shot. Two were badly 
wounded and several made hair 
breadth escapes. Up to Sunday, 
Wages and his friends to the num- 
ber of 76 were defying arrest and 
more trouble is expected.

only during tho latter half dt the time 
that the positive value of creosote aj an

apparent. Formerly my custom was to

curative value ol the remedy 

Dr. Warner writes : "The genera 1 con 
ditien of the patipnt, as a rule, rapidly 
improves. In iomo cases the appetite 
is better, tho cough at first becomes less 
during the daytime, while remaining 
quiteas before dniingtho night. After ii 
time, however, it also lessens at night. 
If the sputum has been tinged with 
blood, this condition disappears, con- 
trary to what might bo expected, as cre- 
osote is said to congest the bronchial 
ibrano, and while at first 
is not much lessened, if at 
character is changed — from be- 
ing thick and yellow— muoo-purnlent, 
in fact— it becomes thinner, fiothy and 
contains less solid matter. 

In no case where previously attacks 
of hemoptysis— spitting ol blood- -had 
occurred have they taken place after 
tre creosote treatment has been estBb- 
lished. The night sweats grow less uml 
in many eases entirely disappear, and 
after awhile there is a total absence of 
the daily fever. The weight of the pti 
tient always increases at first, then itia 
apt to remain stationery, and in excep- 
tional cases may Icssr*. and then n grad- 
ual increase takes plSe. Tho first in- 
crease in weight is no doubt due to the 
impiuvemcnt in appetite and the great- 
er ability of the patient to properly as- 
similate the foe.l consumed." 

Large s of creosote may be re- 
tained without discomfort, one ot Dr. 
Warner's patients reaching a daily 
auicunt of Jlo minims. A valuable aid 
to tie internal administration of creo- 
soUis found by the coincident use of 
sreiseptic inhalations of attosote. "My 
istom is to uso creosote combined oi- 
with terebene or ether in a 50 per 
nt solution, 10 or lo minims dropped 
i the sponge of a Robinsons inhaler,

As some newspaper man ha 
wisely said, during the recei 
money panic, "they are blessing 
in disguise." These words huvt 
been made good in thousands ol 
cases where persons had stock in 
numerous money enterprises, but 
could not realize a dollar on any- 
thing but Building and Loan 
stock. The* sensible conclusion, 
then, is that but a short time 
must elapse before people with 
money to invest will be sekkino 
a good Association to buy stock 
in and not waiting for agents to 
drum up the business, as has been 
the case heretofore. 

Some people havea't the money 
to invest now. But take our ad- 
vice and invest your small earn- 
ings, or a portion of them, month- 
ly, in a strong, large, growing As- 
sociation, one where on the first 
of January and July, each year, 
you get statements showing what 
your money is doing for you, one 
whose success has been unequal- 
led by any other previous effort ; 
one who is always first in putting 
in new features, and each one 
better than the last, for the stock- 
holders ; one who is governed by 
the strictest State laws of any in 
the Union; one who, in case you 
need it, has money to loan either 
on real estate in town or on you 
shares; one who allows free with- 
drawal to such as desire, but offer 
grand inducements to the persist- 
ent "stayers." 

There is one only of this kind 
represented here. It is approved 
of and patronised by our repre- 
sentative business me, who are 
noted for their business wisdom 
and enterprise. The io-operative 
Savings and Loan Association,  ,f 
Falls, South Dakota, hi 
just established an excellent local

One got upon a stage, wliicn

and, second, that the trustees were not 
projicrly served with notifications of 
the condemnation of the old school- 
house. Tho Court of Appeals, revers-

holds that the tax was const ilutional- 
that the trustees have the right to levy 
a. lax fur the bidld'.iig of a school-house 
without submitting Hit question to a 
vote of the tax-payers, and that a tax 
on the white tax-payers, for the pur- 
pose of building a school-house for the 
whites is earnestly legal. The colored 
Iieople, however, cannot be taxed for a 
building for the whites, nor the whites 
taxed for a building for the colored 
people. The second point decided that 
the notification given the trustees was 
sufficient. The contention on this 
point was that  ho notification was

resolutions, among others 
reported by the committee: 

That we most emphatically declare 
against the present system of the Gov- 
ernment, as maintained by the Congress 
of the United States, and the members 
of the Legislatures of the several States. 
Therefore wc declare in favor of hold- 
ing a convention on Feb. 22, 1892, of 
one delegate from each State to fix a 
date and place lor holding a conven- 
tion to nomiuatc a candidate for Pres- 
ident aud Vice-President of the Uni- 
ted Slates. Also 

Rcaolved, that wo favor the aboli-
