Ae owns a fine house surrounded by beautifuil grounds, which are oared for by • landscape gardener, and several plantations in Texas. During the civil war he was a waiter on the boata running between Oalveoton and Houaton. His fortune, estimated at 9400,000^;was made in real estate apmulatiuns. SonstDr 0. N.

For fifteen years she has received one hundred and fifty dollara a month from (he man who was once her slave. II is success, be declares, is due to her aiouo.

I've been here nearly three ycaia now, and I have had ju« one loli- tary bit of aentiment to break the monot ony of busineaa. “About a year ago a good natured Irithman who ia employed at the hotel here came to me and aaid that be eould not read ar writa, bat wanted mato write a letter for him inviting one of tbe oham- bermaidsto attend n danea op the Weit Side. It was done in a abort order, and tbe poor fellow waa so pleated with it that I raAiaed Co aoaept aay pay for tbe work, and offered to read tbe answer just ataoonaaba ahould biing it to me. The Belt day one of tbe cbambermaida came to me and aaked me to write a letter accepting an invitation to a danoe. She had been able to spell out the pre- aioua meaaaga that thepoatman had unex pectedly brought her, and wanted to send an equally neat and polite reply. So I answered my own letter by proxy. After that an enuigetic epistolary bom bardment was begun and I furnished the ammunition for both sides. I will con- fesa that I grew greatly inlerrsted in tbe contest. Both of my patrons were desperately in love with each other, and as th^management of their amours de volved upon mu I handled the matter as doiiuati'l)' and.dipli>n)aiically a:i I could. Can you idunie me if I ovcasiunuily gave them a chanea to team from cxperient'c that‘the course of true love never runs smoothly'? Well, right or wrong, I did it; and after mixing into the case about as many iDvers' quarrels as I thought would add ze^t to the wooing and untangling all the snarls I bad purposely made, I brought the play to an end by writing a proposal aud its acoeptanee, and was re warded fur my work as matchmaker by an invitation to the wedding. It was all the pay I deserved—practice is worth something in such matters, you know.— Chicago Mail. l^a Grippe Again. During tbe epidemic of La G«ippe last season Ur. King'b New Discovery for Consumption, Coughs and Colds, proved to be the best remedy. Reports from the many who used it confirm tbis state ment. They were not only quiokly re lieved, but tbe diseases left no bad results. We ask you lo give this remedy a trial and we guarantee thac you will be satis- tied with results or tbe purchase price will be reftindod. It has no equal in La Grippe, or any Throat, ^heat or Lung Trouble. Trial bottlea free at W. M. Cohen's drugstore. Largo bottles 50c., and II. WOHBN AMO THE !«TBAM ENGINB It takes sand to run an engine; ao it does to run a Woman. Thera is usually a great bustle about an engine; so there is about a woman. It makea a faHq^mad to get left by ao engine; so it'does by a woman. An engine is an object of much won der and admiratifin to men and of fear to horses; so is a woman. When an engine goes off the track it usually takes a man' or more along with ii; NO duos a woman. An engine is known by its company; so is a woman. ,An QPKino if ill sometimes blow a fel low up if he puts on too mueb pressure so will some women.
