The State of Kansas lays claim to
the smallest man in existence. His
name is William Piper and he resides
in Summer county in that State. He
is twenty-two years old, measures
less than three fe.-t high and weighs
only -forty-eight pounds. Mentally
he is quite as sound as ordinary men
of his age. He lives w it' , his wid
owed mother and avoids the public
as much as possible. Hut Kansas
has still another remarkable chai ac

with Napoleon at Waterloo, lives in
a firm house in Marshall county,
Mansas, with a widowed daughter,
lie was one hundred years old Janu
ary last. He was born in Paris and
entered the army at seventeen. He
was a private in Lcbau's Sixth army
corps, and was several times wound
ed. He bears the scars yet and is
proud of them. The one regret of
his life is that Napoleon did not win
the victory at Waterloo.

The hotel and cafe keepers of St
Louis having refused to entertain any
negro as a guest or customer, the
question as to what shall be done
with the colored delegates and alter
nates to the Republican National
Convention is puzzling the members
of the National Committee.
By concert of action a combination
has been formed by all the hotel,
boarding house and cafe proprietors
in the city, by which the negro is ex
cluded from their board and shelter,
and up to yesterday it looked as
though the "man and brother"
would have to eat in the market
house and sleep in the rain, as the
old saying goes.
This, however, has been obiviated.
by the New York McKinley League
securing a special train of Wagner
sleeping and dining cars, which will
arrive in St. Louis Sunday night to
be used by the colored folk while in
attendance on the convention. It is
said that the action of the hotel and
boarding-house people in this matter
is causing no end of trouble. The
fact is the negro is not wanted in St.
Louis as a guest, and but for the ac
tion of the New York McKinley
League the colored delegates and
alternates would have to go hungry
and unhoused. Norfolk Virginian,

Among the new offices created by
Congress, which has just adjourned,
was an industrial commission cf
twelve members three representatives
each ol agriculture, labor, manufac
tures and business, the salary of each
of these commissions to be $5,000
per annum, and each grcup to be
provided with an attorney at a salary
of $5,000. The duties of the sub
commissions are to investigate
questions pertaining to their spe
cialties and to recommend legisla
tion to Congress. There does not
appear any necessity for the appoint
ment of such Commissioners, and the
conclusion therelore, is that the act is
a scheme to provide comfortable po
sitions for friends and party workers
of Congie smen.
If Congressmen had given more
time to legislation looking to the re
lief of the country instead cf creating
offices of this kind the public
might have less cause to grumble
than now seems to be the case. If
the Fifty-fourth Congress had re
mained in session much longer its
folly and extravagance would have
exceeded by far Mr. Reed's famous
billion dollar ' Congress, and it
is not altogether certain that even
now such is not the fact. Virginian.

As an exchange aptly remarks :
Great industries play an important
part in building up a town, but they
are not so valuable, neither will they
buihl up a town so quickly or on so
solid a basis as will smaller industries.

the steady drain of its money to the

large number of small factories are
growing much faster and are more
prosperous than those with a lew
Now the question is how to get
factories established in a town? We
will answer by co-operation of its live
citizens. No matter how many ad
vantages a town or city may have,
the chances are against outside capi
tal coming to it without its citizens
help to bring it there. Capital is be
ing invested in too many places in
the South for the men who possess
it to have to hunt up a place to in
vest it. When the advantage of so
many places are being kept before
their eyes they naturally think that
the towns which keep in the dark
have nothing to recommend them.
Deafness Cannot be Cured
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to cure Deaf
ness, and that is by constitutional
remedies. Deafness is caused by an
inllamed condition of the mucous lining
of the Eustachian Tube. When this
tube gets inflamed you have a rumbling
sound or imperfect hearing, and when
it is entirely closed Deafness is the re
sult, and unless the inflammation can
be taken out and this tube restored to
its normal condition, hearing will be
destroyed forever ; nine cases out of
ten are caused by catarrh, which is
nothing but an inflamed condition of
the mucous surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars
for any case of Deafness (caused by ca
tarrh) that cannot be cured by Hall's

Owing to the continual complaint
of the eyesight of many of the pupils
in the public schools of the city of
Baltimore, the school authorities a
I short while ago decided to employ a
number of oculists to examine into
the cause, and the result was that out
of a total of 53,097 pupils it was
lonnd that 9,051 were troubled with
defective eyes, and the majority of
those so troubled were pupils in the
lower grades. In their report the
oculists declare that the defective
eyesight among the pupils is the re
sult of not placing the maps and
blackboards in the proper light for
them and that hereafter all pupils
should be examined as to the condi
tion of their eyes when they first en
ter the schools that their seats may
be properly adjusted. The examina
tion is to be repeated every year of
all the pupils.
The matter of proper light in our
schools is one which should not be
overlooked, as there is no doubt that
that a failure in this regard has a
great deal to do with the bad eye
sight of many of the school children
who are compelled to wear glasses.

Appreciating the liberal patronage
extended to our York River Line for
so many years, and realizing the im
portance of being thoroughly equip
ped for our new Chesapeake Hay
Line between Baltimore, Old Poi::t
Comfort and Norfolk, in connection
with the lines of the Southern Rail
way System for all points S.uith, this
Company takes pleasure in announc
ing the completion of its new steamer
Atlanta, which, with the mignificent
and swift steamer Charlotte, will be
placed on the Norfolk route.
The steamer Atlanta, which has so
aptly been termed the "New Queen
of the Bay," is a veritable floating
palace. She was built by the William
Cramp vX: Sons Sniff and Kngine
Building Company, of Philadelphia,
at a cost of 8250,000. Her dimen
sions aie: Length, 240 feet ; beam,
43 feet ; depth, to saloon deck 26 li.
The hull is constructed of steel 0!
the b,.st character known for shin-
building, and strictly acc rding tj
the rules of the American Ship Mas
ters Association, all material being
subjected to the most rigorous test
The steamer is propelled by an in
verted Triple Expansion Engine of
the latest and most improved type,
with cylinders 24, 3S, and 62 inches
in diameter, all having a stroke of 36
inches. Running at 125 revolutions
per minutes, they indicate 2,250
horse-power, and drive the steamer at
a speed of eighteen miles an hour.
The boat iS lighted throughout by
electricity ; the stem-head, stern light
and side lights are electric, and she is
proyided with a powerful electric
The ship is provided with steam
steering gear, steam windlass, cap
stans and cargo hoisting engines.
No expense has been spared in
making the passenger accommdations
most complete. The dining room,
which is handsomely finished in hard
wood, and has seating capacity for
seventy persons, is located on the
main saloon deck, forward, thus in
suring ample light and ventilation,
and enabling passengers to command
a view of the beauties of the Chesa
peake Bay, while enjoying the meals
for which this Company has always
been deservedly famous.
Another attractive feature of this
steamer is the location of the kitchen
which is on the upper deck, forward
of the smoke stack, completely iso
lated from the passenger accommo
dations, so that the necessary heat
and odor of the cooking is carried di
rectly overboard, causing no annoy
ance to the passengers.
The main saloon is handsomely
decorated in an artistic manner, and is
luxuriously furnished. The state
rooms are large and comfortable, fit
ted with steam heat, electric lights
and call bells.
The social hall is reached by a
magnificently carved hardwood stair
way leading from the main saloon,
and opens out on the promenade
deck, where the passengers gather to
admire the glories of the Chesapeake
and to discuss the charms oi this lat
est addition to the fleet of this pro

We sincerely hope that Secretary
Herbert will give the new gunboats
stri:tly American names. It is our
conviction that the name cf every
vessel in the United States Navy
should of itself certify the nationality
thereof. There is no reason why we
need borrow from Europe, from the
classics, or from any ether source trie
titles f .r the ships that bear our flag.
Our naval nomenclature should spc; k
for itself, lor ti e Union, for Ameri
ca. There has been altogether to much
of this unmeaning lof.seness ian lin
ing our men-of-war. There ought to
be no terrors or Amphitrites. We
should not have a Vesuvius in the
United States iljet. Even Raleigh,
although it is the name of an Ameri
can city, suggests to the foreign mind
the great English freebooter, Sir
Walter, far more than it does the
great republic and the starry ensign
that floats from its masthead. If we
were poverty stricken in the matter
of typical and characteristic material
there might be some cx:u$e for go
ing abroad in search of these names,
but we are not. We are, on the
contrary especially rich in that re
spect. We have perh ips as large a
stock to draw upon as any nation in
the world, and it is a st :ck ol ex
ceeding beauty and propriety.
What we propose has the sanction
of fitness, o: utility, an 1 f patriorisrn.
