W ELMINGTON. N..C. MONDAY. JULY 7, 1884.
It is said tnat the Kamtchatkans are
dying out and that the race most soon
become extinct. ' Kamtcbatka is larger
than France, and once had a population
of 50,000. but there are now only G,000
left and the mortality is-great. The
people live almost exclusively on fish.
The country will not admit of agricul
ture, and not a Kamtchatkan lives' with
an'iucotne of over SI a year.
The.c'ans have all gathered at
Chicago now nnd to-morrow they will
meet in Convention and make history.

time who will be the chosen one as it is
to (ell what kind of weather we may

point to Cleveland, its true, but then
political indications as a rule,, are just
as apt to be false as true. There Will be
a spirited contest and no man can pre
dict the result.
Tlie owner of a lot oiNew York tenement-houses
has hired a professional

to $2,000, a year, that their presence
greatly depreciates the renting value of
i i'KkixtexdexT of public IX-The properly, and gives it as his delib
erate conviction that the rat was the
ghost in eyery haunted house from the
middle ages down."
