The young man had accompanied the
colored young woman to the shoe store,
where she desired to make a purchase.
"What number of shoes do you wear?"
the salesman inquired.
She glanced at the young man appre
hensively. He was so near that he could
not fail to hear the answer. Then she
said to the clerk :
"Dat soun's like er foolish question
ter me. "
"But it isn't, I assure you. "
"Well, den, ef you gotter hab an
answer, de number ob shoes I wah is

tucky stated that the object of the
convention was "to correct ;t.; griev

said that while the Cause ol silver was
slim at the beginnidg, yet State after
State had taken up the cry until now
they stood foremost. He counseled
moderation, at the same tune urging
them not to let the fruits of a victory
so nobly won pass unused. S lid he,
"a new day is da wing, whose efful
gence will mark the return ot Demo
cracy to power I beg you gentle
men to make a platform that will tell
the truth, and then rally as one man
to vendicate its utterances."
Governor Altgeld .of Illinois was
then induced to address the conven
tion. The Illinoisian said that his
purpose in the convention was to aid
in the nomination of a president and
the formulating ol a platform which
would again give hope to the party
of the people. He described the
semi-bondage m which millions were
being placed by the shrinking values.
The free silver element was then
presented by Ex-Congressman Wil
liams of Massachusetts. He claimed
that the convention should not stand
on sectarianism. But declared that
this is a battle for the restoration of
the union of the States." This
statement and indeed his entire
speech was received with enthusiasm
by the delegates and visitors.
The committee on credentials seat
called and the speeches of nom
i.auion were made the, convention

I ho 1 1 oj Oiitlo k.
The general observation of the
many visitors, including tobacco men
and planters, from all parts of Vir
ginia and North Carolina, is that the
I tobacco crop is growing irregularly
1 :r. tiie ne.ds and lias too much wet
j weather in some places and not
j enough rain in others ; but it is too
j c trly to make predictions as to the
ix.al outcome. We gave warnings
J the wet weather reaction two weeks
ago. It will take a week or two to
tell results and for the plants to re
adapt itseff to any radical weather
change. The sappy roots will have
to harden, to get deeper soil, and
that will take time.
In the meantime, there is cutting
in North Carolina and many cures
already, much topping going on,
many forward crops, and yet grow
ing complaiuts of bad growth. Al
together it is getting the better of
some of the new belts so far. Tne
heavy, dark belt is growing up well.
