Alexandfr Sprant k Sod, ttoD exporten, uf this city, Boot out he following circuUr yeiterday: “In view of proopoctive wot and Btoriny eather throughout the cottoo belt, we eaire ti> draw the alteation of our friends 0 the intorior to the most important attor of dry atorago for cotton to be eld er handled durinj; tho winter months, t will be remember'd that a large part t last season's holdings was rendered nmerchantable and worthleu by pre vious exposure to the weather in open fields or under tho eaves of out-houses, either from indifference or with the nn- wotthy purpose of adding to the weight by moisture, and thereby increasing its marketable valuu. VI any exporters of cotton were thus deceived, and made such heavy losses from datnage and falling off in weights that it is their fixed determi nation to utterly refuse cotton which has not been properly housed this season. “Onr puipoie is to show that such carelessness reacts upon the planter. Many bales which came to us last spring ap parently dry and in good condition, were found, upon examination by the testing rod, to be utterly rotten and valueless. Id one instunoo a bale of apparently dry cotton, weighing ti-(U pounds, was openeil for exatuination and fouuJ to contain 550 pounds of rotting cotton, which was sold ior about I cent a pound. Many other similar cases could be quoted, but this will suffice to justify the warning that a planter or roercbant who risics his cotton out of d'ton in bad weather is liScoly to suffer serious consequences—in heavy allowances for datmago or the utter re- jeetioD of the cotton as unmerchaDtable.” —VVilnaington Mamngcr. GUV. HILI. IN THB8UNATB. OPINION or SENATOR VOORHEES ON NEW YORK'a NEW SENATOR. Poople who imagine that David B. Hill will be lost »ight of in the Senate •re going to findthemselves mistaken. I am not given t« making eiaggerated ■tatements and I have bad sufficient ex perience, 1 think, to judge men with gome degree of aoeuraoy. Gov. Hill has the ability to take his place in the front rank of the Senate the first day be takes bis seat as a member of that body. In my judgment he is the most aeeomplished statesman this country hu produced in forty years. He is the •qaal of the great Tilden in bis prime and possesses an infinitely greater degree of courage. If Mr. Tilden had had Bill’a courage in 1876 he would have achieved the Presidency. Mr. Hill is a close atudent and « keen observer. There ia nothing superficial about him. 'He is a strong partisan because he believes that the principles laid down by Jefferson and Madison and Jackson are eternally right. He is too broad to confine himself to one idea or hobby. Hill's speech at the unveiling of the ■ODument to poor Orady was a master piece, and be delivered a speech of tbree- qnarters of an hour at a banquet in At lanta that, if it had been d«‘livered on the floor of the Senate, would have made its author famous. I am not given to prophecy, but I predict fur Qov. Hill a great future.

THE ACE OF BEAUTY. women’s OARB midway BETWEEN EDEN AND TO DAY's FASHION. When a Roman lady went out of doors, says the ^an Francisco Chronicle, she threw over her indoor dress the palla, or cloak, which was a large si|uare or oblong piece of woollen cloth, and was fastened, either around tho neck aron the shoulder, or by brooch. Thu cloth vnried very much in thick- netv, or fineuets of texture, color and brilliancy of design, according to the season and the fortune uf the lady. A bust of subdued and moderate de velopment was much admired in young girls, and somotiuies they wore round round their chests bandages, which were intended to restrain tho growth of the breasts. Such bandages, however, were worn only when the busts were disposed to over development, or when mothers were more than usually anxious to increase the personal charms of their daughters. Grown up women, also, whose busts were disposed to undue fulness, wore under the tunic nnd next to the skin a soft leather bandage, called a breast band; but this was not at all intended to com press the figure into any unnatural slim ness, as the modern corset do. Sometimes a sash or scarf was fastened close under the bust to serve support This was worn over a little tunic, but only by women whoso figures or active habits of life rendered such a support nec essary. Young unmarried women wore abroad flat girdle or zone around the hips. This was a symbol uf virgin purity and was worn until the wedding day. Hats do not seem to have been worn, the hair being covered by a veil, or by a portion of the cloak being drawn over it. Auburn or golden hair was the most priced, and, since the natural blonde hair was very rare among Roman women, gieat trouble was taken to impart to dark trasses the coveted hue. The hair was washed with lye, then rubbed with a special kind of pomade and exposed to the rays of the sun. It this did not produce the desired result wigs made of the blonde locks of captive women were worn. Jewish merchants traveled through Teutonic tribes to buy up fine hair for the Roman market. A lady^s toilet took a long time, for she had a whole bevy of slave girls called “adorncrs," trained to a ■pecial work. To keep the complexion smooth and soft a dougli kneaded with asses’ milk was spread over the face at night and in the morning wa:snadoff agtin with milk. One Empress, Poppaas, tho favorite of Noro, was always aeoompaniod on her travels by a drove of she asses, that she might never la'jk the necossary milk. The eyebrows were drawn in fine curves with a pencil and the lashes darkenee; white and red was put upon the cheeks, the nails were trimmed and polished, the hair was oiled, and perfumed and dressed even the garments were sciiated. CONSUMPTION CURBn.

IT DOCS NOT DRIVE OOI.D OUT BUT SUPPLIES OOOD ODRKENCY. Many evil prophecies have been made by the gold bugs as to the great evils that would befall the country in case of a groat coinage of the baser metal known as silver. The cry was if you continue to coin silver in large quantities you will neces sarily and inevitably drive out of the coun try all the gold. You have no doubt heard the cry often. As far back us 1879 there was gold coin in the United States amount ing to 92-16,000,000- The silver amount ed to a beggarly 846,000,000. Coining silver began, and theu the gold bugs and their organs began to cry out most lusti ly—You will ruin the country, stagnate trade, drive out gold, and ho rang the alarm throughout the land. But what happened? Did these things come to pass? Turn to 1833, four years, later, after coinage of silver had been con tinued. In that year there were $240,- 000,000 of silver—an increase of 400 per cent. How was it with the gold? Had it taken wings and flown to parts unknown? We find that so far from this, tho gold of 1879, had actually in creased tu 8543,000,000 or some 90 per cent, increase. Silver coinage continued. Was the result full of disaster, and did all the gold leave the country? The an.swer is, that on tho 1st of July of last year, the guld had increased to SG96'000,000. But you will say, if you are a gold bug, perhaps that this increase of g >1 d was owing to the decrease of silver. And in that yuu will slip up badly. So far from a decrease of silver, the fact is that the 846,000,000 of silver in 1U79, has steadily increased, uud uu the 1st of July 1S90, silver and its representatives ag gregated 8681,000,000 or nearly as much as gold. So the croakers croaked for nothing, and the prophets of evil prophesied when the results simply gave the lie direct to all that was said. That is so. The Philudelphia Manufacturer, and able Republican, high protection organ, says this of the present condition of silver: “..ueanwhlle, every silver dollar and every note representing a silver dollar, is to-day just as good as a gold dollar, has precisely the same purchasing power and is exchani'eable for it at par. No human being has lost anything by the silver coinage; no violent disturbance of values has occurred, and up to January of this year gold fluwed steadily in in stead oi flawing out. One of the results uf this silver legis lation has been that the people have been supplied with a quantity of g'H)d currency in sufficient volume to permit the easy conduct of trade opera tions. In 1879 the per capita circula tion was only 816 75. In 1883 it was 822.91. This year it is 82345. That it may safely be made larger is the opin ion uf many wise financiers. France has 844.55 per capita, and we may doubt if it be possible for any nation to have too much sound metallic currency.” The writers on the gold side assert that the silver dollar is a dishonest dol lar. That it is a great wrong to push such money upon the people. But the plain facts remain, first that silver has greatly multiplied and still there has been and is an abundance of gold—the prec ious gold is coming back fiom Europe— and second' that a dollar in silver wil^ buy a d.jllar’s worth of food/>r clothes or as much as gold or paper will buy of these articles. The “Mannfactarer" says that in fact there has been more gold than the conn* try’s necessities required. It says that it was because of this excess that so much guld went ahiawd in the early part of the year and no shook or alarm waa fftlt. It says: “The aetnal needs of the nation were supplied. The presence beta of an abun dant silver cnrreney hasconlribated stead- iness to our financial positioa, made os little dependent upon sold, and atimslated busiuttss ia- every 'diteutiviu.''—WIIMng* toa McHjnger. POPPINC THE QUESTION. ASYSTEMATIOMETUOD OFPROCEEDURE THAT WILL HELP THE BASHFUL YOUNG MAN. Don’t be too sudden about it. Many a ghl has said “no" when she meant' ‘yes” simply because the lover didn't choose the right time and pop the question gently. Take a dark night for it. Have the blinds closed, the curtains down and the lamp turned almost out. Sit near enough to her so you can hook your little fingers into hers. Wait until the conversation begins to flag, aud then quietly remark. “Kmma, I want to ask you something; She will fidget about a little, and pro bably reply: “Yes." After a pause you can add: “Emma, my actions must have shown —that is you must have seen—I moan you must have been aware that—” Pause here fur awhile, but keep your little finger firmly lacked. She may try to turn the subject off by asking you how you liked thu sermun, but she only docs It to encourage you. Afler a pause you can continue: “1 was thinking as I was coming up the street to-uight that before I went a- way I would ask you—that I would broach the subject nearest my—I mean I would know my—” Stop aisain and give her hand a gen tle squeeze. She may make a move to get away or she may not. In each case it augurs* well for you. Wait five min utes and then goon. ‘‘The past year has been a very happy one to me, but I hope that future years will be happier. However, that depends entirely on you. I am here to night to know—that is, to ask you—I am here to night to hear from your own lips the one sweet—" Wait again. It isn’t best to be too rash about such things. Give her plenty of time to recover her composure, then pot your hand over your heart and con tinue; “Yes, I thought as I was coming here to-night how happy I had been, and I said to myself that if I only knew—If I was only certain that my heart had not deceived me, and that you were ready to share—” Hold on—there's no hurry about it. Give the wind a chance to sob and moan outside^among the trees. This will make her lonesome, and call up all the love in her heart. When she begins to cough and grow restless you can go on. “Before I met you this world was a desert to me. I didn’t take any pleasuie in life, and it didn t matter whether the sun shon^ or not. But what a change in one short year. It is for you to say whether my future shall be a prairie of happiness, or one long and never ending pathway of thistles. Speak, dearest Em ma, and say—and say that—" Give her be minutes more by the clock and th^ add: “That you—will be—that is, that you will—be mine!” She will heave a high, look up at the clock and room, and then whisper as she sli'les her head over your vestpocket; “Henry—I will.”—Tid Bits.

C., Nov. 11.—The editor of the “Chronicle” asked me to write fur publication the reasons why I think a third party shonid not bo formed at this time. And indulging the modest hepo that I may thus be to some little extent useful to my countrymen, I now comply with tho request. I am decidedly opposed to the forma tion of a third party at the present lime. But let no one think fur one moment that I base my opposition to the formation of such third party on any moral ground. The people have a clear right to form a new party whenev er they feel sure that the best interests of freedom and good government demand such action. About this there can be no mistake at all. Indeed, I can readily conceive such a condition of cxistiog par ties, as would make it the highest duty which freemen owe to themselves, to their country and to posterity to separate them selves from corrupt and tyrannical polit ical organizations, and unite in the forma tion of such associations as would secure to all the poople the ends of good and ecunomical government. I want also to distinctly say that I think a very large and influential wing of the Democratic party is not now, and has not been within my recollection, wil ling to do justice to the demands that have been made by the great mass of our agricultural population. Mr. Cleveland and his large following within the. Demo cratic party are avowedly hostile to the free coinage of silver. And, look as it may, the fact is, that this opposition to free silver means a small currency for this country; and a small volume of cur rency—a volume of currency that is staple in amount, or nearly so, moans simple ruin in a rapidly growing country. It is certain that the excess of inciease in the productions of a country over the growth or enlarsement of the amount of its money circulation enhances the value of that circulation, and when such exress is lar^e the enhancement will be simply disastrous. The position of the wing of the Democratic party to which I have referred threatens this coun try with exactly this ruin. I lake it, this is the reason why the Alliance be takes itself to the question of enlarging the circulation to the neglect of many other important questions. This by the way. I am opposed to the formation of a third party at this time, because, as 1 look at tho matter, it is not by any certain that such a party could succeed, if it were formed. I entertain no doubt at all that such a party can be formed. The material for its formation is abuodaut. But could those material.s be organized into victory? I know of no political party (hat was ever fjrmcd in this country, ur elsewhere, that was able to accumpliali anything of enduring value without weary years of that peculiar cust of iraioiuu: which comes from defeat; and there »|i pears to be no good reason to think that the third party, if formed at this tiaie. would be an exception in history. It seems to me, that demands for reforms are so pressing and urgent, as to make it almost wicked to compel the farming and producing classes of the country to wait tor relief until they can be organized in to a new party and trained to follow new and untried leaders to victory. Again, I am opposed to the formati' n uf a third party now, because such auticn would, in my opinion, expose the countiy to the continuance of the Kepublioun party in coiftrol of uur national uilhit.7. I cheerfully a>'Oord to the Republicsn party (he eminent disiinution amongst the parties of the world of havin;' d. - itroyed human slavery on this continent. But I cannot forget that it has als mure than once attempted to d itroy sovoivign States that it created, and has refused to Boflen and modify, thi> unspeakably '.'ii'!; ed financial syateu uiider wbioh onr fsr- mers now groan, that it has legislated our flag from the seas of th6 world by de stroying carrying trade, that it has fast ened upon the producing country thia devilish tariff system in the interests of a few rich manufacturers, that it haa begotten great monopolies and conseore- crated itself to their strengthening and enlargement, that it bas never lost an opportunity to squander the people’s mon ey upon its pets and favorites, that only ■ last winter it tried to send a deputy mar shal into every voting place in the South ern States. I believe the purposes and aims of the Republican party are wicked, and I am afraid to take the risk of eon- tinuing it in power, which seeois to me tu be involved in the formation of a third party at this time. I am, moreover, opposed to the forma tion of a third party at this time, because I believe the Alliance can get all that ia valuable in its demands through the Democratic party. To do this, I would throw the anti-silver and anti-tariff re form wing of the Democratic party over board neck and heels, and I would unite all the lovers of good government under tho flag of our Democratic fathers, and compel the reforms demanded by both justice and mercy. May I be allowed to say, that mjr Democracy is more than blind devotion to tho leaders of the party, is more than mere sentiment. It is a conviction, as deep and abiding as my nature, that all the people are better than any of the people that any system of government, which falls with inequality upon anj class of citizens, is wicked, and ought t» be overthrown. I am an Allianceman, and I am heart ily in favor of any demand made by my brethren, excepting only two, viz; the sub-treasury bill and tbu election ttf Senators by a popular vote. I am an Al- lianceinan because I conceive the princi ples of the Alliance to be Democratic in the fullest and best sense. I belieTe the Alliancemen and the Democrats stand upon common ground and that they are contending fur a common good, aud 1 want to see them unite their forces ia this crisis, aod conquer the victory fur the people which I believe to be easily with in their power. It is proper for me to say that I have written at the request of the editor of the Chronicle; and without such a request I would not have written at all. If what I have written shall do any good, there will bcjust so much gained; and what I have written can do no harm, for I am not authoriztid to speak for anybody else but myself; and I am not a candidate for any office—no, not even for the presidency of a debating society.—State Chronicle. It is no easy thing to dress harsh, coarse hair so as to make it look graceful or beeuming.
