There is a Japanese cook in New York
who is an artist in preparing fiRh. His

A mussulmao having served his term
in prison is regarded almost as a saint,

admiration of his fellow believers.

The Foraker-Sherman fight, however,
is the subject of moet universal discuss
ion. Wherever two or three Republicans
are gathered together to talk politics it is
present, and, much as the newspapers of

more or less in every nominatioo that has
yet been made for either Representative
or State Seaator^ and promises )b this
county and some others to etir up a most
■crloua factional fight. Since the party
oigaat of tbe State declared that no can-
fidate must (dedge himself, snd that the
qnettion of who will i>e Senator must be
left out of lODtidfratioD until it is set-
c tlid that tbe Setiator will be a 'Republi-
