'TiT 'the very sound of it makes u e sick: Cll-lvily click' from morn till night, And then in my dreams until broad daylight, 'OlicWiry click' my living to win, -Till my linger tips are all. worn thin. OLckiW click' iiil my brain's awhirl" So sung a pretty typewriter girl. " 'Clickity click' with the senior pa rd Eying me over his spectacles hard: 'Clickity click' with the junior pard Whispering, 'really, don't work so hard.' 'Clickity click' till my eyes are blurred, And I scarcely caii see of my notes a word, 'Till my 'frizzes droop and my bangs uncurl,' And I wish there was never a typewriter girl. ,s Clickity click' is the only song That rings in my ears though .the heart may ache, . Still the weary fingers no rest may- take. 'Clickity click' the machine must go,' If one girl dies, there are others, you know; But when I'm dead, on my tomb stone stick These words: She died of 'clickity click.' " Davidson college, Trinity col lege, the Greensboro State Nor mal and the A. &. M. college all open up with most gratifying numbers, These are gratifying reports. We have no better items to note. The trial at Rennes looks quite unfavorable for Dreyfus and sickening enough to lovers- of justice. Nothing more firmly fix s the conviction in the ordi nary mind that Dreyfus is inno cent than the bearing of the court. From dispatches it is quite apparent that the court is determined on reconvicting the prisoner. There is clearly a disposition to admit the flimsiest evidence against him and cut off his able covnsel from everystrong Ioint of defense possible. The German government will consent for the deposition of Schwartz koppn nd the Italian govern ment that of Panizzardi to be taken but even this is denied the defense. Surely this trial will stand out in history as un precedented in its mockery of justice and a stain on the honor of the French military regime. The trial is expected to end about next Monday. The hope oi justice has ended already. It seems that the shooting at Greenville by Sheppard with in tent to kill U. S. District Attor ney Bernard has scandal at the bottom of it regardless of what the attorney would have the pub lic believe. There's no mitigation of his crime and yet it occurs to the thinking mind that it took two to ruin that home if it was ruined. The prospects of war between England and the Transvaal grow more and more threatening. It even seems inevitable. It seems foolhardy for the Boers to go in to a war but still they seem to be going to risk fighting awhile. Peace can always be made when one side is pretty thoroughly whipped, as in our late experi ence with Spain. Apropos to our remarks on the improvement of the Evening News, Editor Dowd is good enough to say : "The Standard itself has made a number of marked improve ments, and fills its field well." If the News sees from an im partial standpoint the consuma tion of our highest ambition it does us a great kindness in sav ing so. Dispatches say that ex-Gov. Brown has propesad to Gv, Goebol that he (Brown) and all the - ticket will withdraw if ho (Goebel) and all his ticket will do the same. -He proposes to call a ' new convention and make up an entirely new ticket. This may have the appearance of fairness iri the7 interest of Democratic harmony in Ken tucky, but it hardly seems that any xme wduld ' expect the men nominated in-regular convention to withdraw. It would be a precedent at least for defeated aspirants to run as independents and then withdraw on condition that the successful candidate be also deprived of the fruits of victory and the people be com pelled; to nominate a second or third- choice. ; - Victory under such circumstances is hardly preferable to straightout defeat and its effects would doubtless be harder to recover from. Willhik to Tell. ' Sometimes it is a pleasure to answer questions, even if the questioner may put them in an unpleasant way: "What do you do for a liv ing?" asked a lawyer, frowning horribly at a hatchet-faced young man who was undergoing cross examination. "I, sir," answered the witness, hastily diving into his pockets, "am the agent for Doctor Kork er's Celebrated Corn and Bunion Destroyer. Greatest remedy of the age; used by all the crowned heads of Europe; never known to fail to remove the most obsti nate corn in less than twenty -four hours or money cheerfully refunded " Here the court interfered. In dianapolis Journal. For Over Filty Tears Mrs. "Winslow'a Soothing Syrup has been used for over fifty years by mil lions of mothers for their children while teething, with perfect success. It soothes the child, softens the gums, allays all pain, cures wind colic, and is the best remedy for Diarrhoea. It will relieve tbe poor little sufferer immedi ately. Sold by druggists in every part of the world. Twenty-five cents a bot tle. Be sure and ask for "Mrs. Win slows Soothing Syrup," and take no other kind. Cjt. Carter's Side of It. We have at last lit upon some words from Capt. Carter, of the U. S. A. Engineer Corps, who is in disgrace, but whom the late diases indicate "was more sinned against than sinning. inti-wifv nven the In an Atlanta Journal he says : "Even were I free to do so, I should not answer the many malicious falsehoods almost daily sent broadcast from the bureau of my enemies in Washington, since no one has had the man hood or courage to father them, but T shall be Had to have made j public the evidence of friend and foe alike. It all proves inno cence. "Being, however, an officer of the United States army, awaiting the promulgation of the pro ceedings of a court martial before which I was tried, it is manifest ly improper for me to give any interview, so 'that I cannot now give to you the convincing proofs of my absolute innocence as de veloped oniny trial. "Those proofs appear, it seems to mo, so clearly in the record of that trial and are so vividly set forth in the briefs of my counsel, each of which refers to the rec ord in such a manner that any statement therein may be veri fied, that a study of that record or those briefs will present more forcibly than I could speak (even were I at liberty to do so) the great demonstrated truth that every act of mine was honest. "My works were conducted to successful conclusion for less than the estimated cost, at prices below the average of those paid at other places on the Atlantic and G ulf coasts from Virginia to Texas. "The testimony of every able, disinterested engineer,- civil or military, who appeared before the court, demonstrated beyond question that my works were conducted honestly and efficient ly and the evidence further de monstrated that not only . was nothing whatever lost' to 'the government, but that at Savan nah alone a saving of more than one million of dollars was effect ed by the manner in which those works were executed by me. "Referring to my private let ters, all of which were seized and published more than a year and a half ago, and which are now being reprinted, the most recent one i(1891) was dated five years before the appropriation was made for the works concern the misconduct of which I was tried, and long before even the project for that improvement had entered the mind of any one. "It is therefore evident that none of those letters has any bearing whatever on the charges on which I was tried. The evi dence shows that every letter written to or received from either of the contractors was written not only long ago, but that they related to matters in which the government had no interest whatever, and that in no single instance did I receive one penny or any other benefit whatever from anything suggested in those letters. "Neither I nor any one else has ever asked clemency for me. All I have ever asked is for Anglo-Saxon justice," The strategic plan of resum ing intense activities in xhe Philippines is said to be to come in on the back side of Aguinaldo.
