The eighth oongreasioDal diitriot of North Carolioa begins to bum witb a oheorful aoticipBtioD. Tbo lower project- iog braoobes of treos, and the impertiDent UDderbush along the road aod pathways and oow tracks have bocD lopped off with ao unspariog band. The ruts are filled 10 a« rapidly as the wcatber admHr. The Hod, Tyre York is about to begin bis unique ouavass for (he UepubHoao nomination for CoDgrcssman. He has addled and briiMod his bull. Fire shoots from its noBtrils and most of its feet are usually in the air. It is a bull full of spirit, impetuous, pawing tbo ground, leaping into the air, waving its tail in defiance of the Democracy, and of the Hon, Tyro York’s competitor for the oomiDation. The Hon. Tyro York’s competitor, [Hon. Ramulus Z. Linncy, who it is proposed (shall canvass the district on mule back] palpably unable to meet Col. York io that ooblo arena which ho has made his own, has devised many sinister expedients. He has directed his hench men along the route of Col. York’s trumphal progress to bandage tbo trees at various intervals wiih red bandannas. The colored Kcpubiicans who are unwiso enough to oppose Col. York's aspirations have been directed to wave widly the reddest of tbcir red shirts beside tbo way. But Col. Tyre York's bull, vioIoDt as he seems, is a good,- sensible, solid, respectable, quiet, order loving, conscrva* tive Republican animal. Besides, Col. York will put blinders on him. Witb five or six pairs of blue and black glasses plastered upon bis burning eyes, (his ingenious anima), who confcrs honor upon his name of Taurus Tyiious Kburaconcsis, will be unable to resent (be indignides uf liis master’s fucs. Wherever he goes lie will attract attention by bis beauty and bis seciuing dmility. Thousands will ussemhle (o meet and greet him on his way and to give him the glad pat When Col.

A Govcramcni Officcr Cajlard ty a Moon shiner’s Daugbter. A remarkable story has just come to light in which figuro moonsbinerd, a rev enue of&eer, a beautilul mouatain maid, Cupid and bioyoles. In (be pummer a suspicion which the revenue department had long entertained ripened into certainty that thero was an UUoit distillery somewboro in this vioinity which was producing large quantities of “Mountain Dew.*’ The local officials being well known to the inhabitants, the department sent hero a youog man from Now York, one Jack Dickson by natne whoso instructions were to ferret out such information as he could get, while appar* ontly oocupied solely io fishing, buotiog and otherwise passing a month’s vacation. The programme was duly carricd out. Dickson hunted aod fished and kept his eyes open, but not even a whiff could be get of tbe forbidden liquor. Gao day nearly two weeks after his arrival, ho took his fishing rod and journeyed in a direotion nut hitherto taken. Trying many mountain streams, he oaught a few fish, but his spying efforts were as vain as heretofore. Evening came on, and not knowing his whereabouts, ho was delighted to suc ceed in getting out of the underbrush un to a good wagon road, llndecided which direotion to take, he paused by the road side a moment, when an apparitioa darted around the bend of the road aod fuirly took away his breath. A bicycle in this wilderness, and what is mjre, ridden by a most attractive girl! She saw him, of course, and as he admitted hlinsijif to be lost, fhe directed him h )w to ri;aoh her father's farmhouse, extending a cordial invitatioQ to stop, with all the free good fellowship for which our girls hereabouts are noted. Tbeo mounting her wheel, she sped anuy, while Dickson hurtled behind. The larmt-'T insisted upou bis staying all night, and he did so. It was a cjhc of love at first Higlit. Dickson being expert wlii>elmiu himself, was captivated by the beautiful mouutatn rider. Moon* shiners were forgirtten in lb) next few days. Within a week be had his wheel sent hither by express, and was more than pleased to comply with Sallie Newman's laughing orders that it must be kept at the farm. Every day they went out together, starting from the farm in the afterooon and riding through th leafy byways, frequently stopping at th> reMdenee of Sallie’s aunt io the village for supper, and then going home in the moonlight. Weeks sped away, until ooe day Dick* son was rudely awakened from his dream of bliss by a peroaiptory order from Washington to return home, his mission having proven fruitless. Sadly he started out with Sallie for a final ride. Ail un conscious of bid woes, Sallio twitted him upon his strange silenje, nod then chal- ed him to a race. Away she sped, and he was sorely tried to keep at her side. Neither noticed the fragments of pane of window glass, dropped on the road by soma unlucky farmer, until too late. “Hold on, our tires are punctured,” shouted Dickson, jumping from his wheel; “by the horn spoon, what's that,” be added gazing with amazement at a tiny stream of liquor spurting from both front and rear (ires A moment Ia(ci tbe whole situation fell upon him. '*0h, you little moooshincr,'' he murmured, and then ho let his wheel fall, and sprang to catch Sallie, who bad swooned. For six weeks the valiant Dickson had been assisting uoawares the moonshincra by carrying whiskey in bis pneumatic tiie«, insjrtt'd at the farmhouse and deft ly removed by A*int JuQi in the villuge Did be arrest the guilty maid? Not much. Ho resigned his position aod married her, aod tbe bappy pair now live in Philadelphia, where they are often seen on a tandem in the pjrk.

A woman's smile is (bus described in a Hawaiian romrince: “Her rich red lips parted, and there fiished upon the land scape two rows uf beautiful white teeth. Slowly her mouth opened wider and wider, deeper grew the dimples in her brooie oheek^; brighter danced the sun beams in her eyes, until s(ray ray, dardng through the foliage of an overhanging bougbf illuminated tbe deep cavern of her mouth, bringing into view the back part of her bead. Then, seeing us gaging intently upon ber^ she shuts her mouth, and darkness fell upon the scene.” THE BETTER TEST. Mamma — Jobnie, you bate been figbtiog. I can tell H by tbe look in your eye.

Tho husband's work kept him from home at night, (hough sometimes, when work was slack, ho would get in before daylight. My sleeping room was immediately beneath that occupied by tho tenants. “At the time I speak of (here wa^ also another lodger in (ho house, not con fined to any partiuular floor, but having the run of (he whole premises. This was a pet cat, u groat favorite with all of us. This spceial cat came very near getting me into serious trouble. On one occasion she took a week’s leave of ab sence. Wo never ascertained where or how she spent the (ime, and no (race of her could be found. But Uhe cat came back.” “Ooe night I was aroused from a deep sloop (0 hear a pi(eous mewing at tho upper door. I hastily arose and without taking (ho (imo to even put on my slip pcrs I hurried down and admitted (he wanderer. Thou I started upstairs to my room, but by some montul aberration I seemed to forgot its location, pa.ssed it by and went on up to tho third floor. “Tho only way in which I can explain my mistake is (his: There was a base ment to (he house and 1 usually entered that way. To reach my chamber in such event I was, of course, compelled (o as cend two flights of ^tairs, and tho bubit thus lurtned may, io my sloopy state, have led to tho error. The firi^t thing I knew 1 was standing, clad only in ooe very much abbreviated garment, inside the tenant s room. The door was un locked, aod I had opeued it and stepped in without disturbing the sole occupant, the young wife. There before me, by tho light streaming through an open window, I could plaitily see nmdarne wrapt in slumber, unconscious of (be proximity uf a siiay man, calmly, yet not quietly, snoozing away. “For a moment I w^s completely up set and failed (o realize tbe situation. Then, recovering my sonse:^, I softly stole out, without a(temp(jng to close the door. I had been in,my room less than five minutes when thero was a rattle at the front door as tho key was inserted and in walked Mr. Younghusbaud. Quietly he sped upstairs, and soon after 1 heard a somewhat animated discussion in which tho fact of the room door being open seetned to cut quite a figure. I didn’t go up aod explain the matter. In fact, I wa.s so impressed with the narrow escape (hat I hud made that I was oom- pelled to resort to the contents of a small bottle to steady my nerves. What a wouderful difference a few minutes may make io (he affiirs of mankiod. I was never before so struck with tho value of time. “Now, suppose I hud been discovered by the young wife as I came out! What ooustruoliou would have been put on tho situation? Would my explanation huve avail)2d? Hardly. Suppose, as is mjst likely, a row had occurred, and the mitter bad gone into (he courts What wou'd a jury have thought of my apparently all to diaphauoui story? I hate to think of what the oosQquences might have been, both to myself and to others. “It is true, my character was, and sciil Is, fairly gojd, aod the cat was there t>> testify io my behalf, but I fear thut would n't have helped me much But supposed me exonerated by a jury.

One member of tbe House is in a regular h(cw just now. To a reporter bo tells (bis story of hiiOHelf: “I was slightly surprised a few days ago (u receive a lc((er from a constituent, as follows: “ ‘Dear Judge—Tim Dooley says thut the (lovernment gives away fish (o (hose who apply.

If they give away the fish hooks I wish you would send me some, for (he Major, Baosom Brown, Judge Kaufman nod I have planned to go fishing as soon as (be weather opens up. You know they all worked well for you (he last time.’ “For tho sake of the joke I dropped into a sporting goods store, and bought u tin box of hooks for 91.50, and sent it (o my friend with a no(c saying I was very glad (hat I had sonic fish hooks still left from my quota, though there had been a gre-iit demand for them aod (he horse hook. The supply of fish had run out, aod (he President had been so occupied wi(h bonds, and had Coogre^s on his hands so loog that our supply was ex hausted. I regretted also that the ducks have been wild, ur could maybe have got some, but last trip drover only got 13, and he needed most of those hiinne^f. “The results was fourteen requests for fi'jh hooks within u week, and they are still coming. It xa no use to say thut Uncle Stim does not handle fi«h hooks, a.-^ here are the hooks and there is my letter, and if I don't send them every last man (hat I rofuie will sharpen a knife for me next campaign, and if I do I will go broke.

The Queer Proposal AiiresseJ lothciMolher of his l.aJy Lover. A quiant offer of marriage, written more than ooo hundred years ago, is carefully preserved in tho family of the young wooer’s descendants. It wus ad dressed not (0 the young woman herself, but most respectfully and decorously (u her parents. Tho fa(her uf tho “Betsy" referred to had (cn daughters, and as be was a clergyman for fifty years in a small Now England (own, it may be surmised (hat his offirmative answorto pparo his “sevenlh" was as quickly assenting as i( was final. Tho wooer was also a clergy man, and he and his Betsy passed their entire married livrs in the same pastorate, ministers of (hose days liviog atid dying with their flocks. Here is the lover's plea: Both reverend sir and worthy maiden, Soft wedlock's bands first was talked in heaven; When happy man in Eden dwelt alone, The smiling God, a spouse did form of buno That friendship might their joyful souls in»>pire And knit their hearts in a seraphic fire. With wedlock chain I wish myself to bind, If from your lips the answer should prove; Betsy, your seventh, 1 wish you to impart That we may join our hands as well as hearts, And live in love and share cach other's cares.

Learn to keep your (roubles to yourself. The world is (oo busy to care for your ills and sorrows. Learn to stop croaking. If you cannot see any good in the world, keep the bad to your self. Learn to hide your pains and achen under a pleasant smile. No one cares to hear whether you have (he earache, head, ache or rheumatism. Don’t cry. Tears do well enough in novels, but they are out of place iu real life, licarn to mee( your friends with a smile.

I aslenej Atove the Knee it is so Prelly with its Buckles and Ritton Bows No Wuman Can Resist It. The garter has become a thing of beauty, but it remains a hygienic abomi> nation, according to the doctors. This refers to tho round giirter, which com- pri'sses (ho muscles, re(ards (he circulu- (ioi), aod numbs the nerves. And it is this instrument of torture upon which the manufacturers have lavished their attention, until it has be come so pretty an affair, with its filagree buckles and its ribbon bows, that only Spartan women can resist it. FASTKNKD ADOVE THE KNEK. The round garter, fastened above the knee, is not consilered by physicians quite HO deadly as the tightly-drawn corset. There arc no ribs in the leg to bo compressed, and the vital organs of the body are not located in the neighbor hood of the knee. But, n«xt (u the injurious compression uf the waist, bust, and abdomen by stays, (ho hygieoists place tbe compression of the leg by elastic garters. The india-tubber bands which cncirc'ie (he flesh jus( above the knee are dangerous, becau.>^e uf their effect upon the muHcles and upuo the circulation. The veins are contracted, and (be blood of ncccssi(y is retarded in its flow. Tbe result is not merely local injury, but harm to the whole system, which is affected by the iHluggishoess of the circu lation. But tho danger does not merely lie io un impaired cireuiution, but is also mus cular. In walking, tho muscles just above and below the knee are brought more in(o play than any others. The compression of tho mu»icles at this point is therefore, something to bo avoided, for it moans additional effort at every step and consequent weariness. Often this fatigue produces muscular rheumatism, and doctor's bills arc (he direct result of the frivolous bit of silk elastic ribbon and silver which shopkeepers call a gar ter. If (he esigeneies of tidiness absolutely demand tho round garter it is much better that it should bo worn below the knee than above. ADVERTISEMENTS.
