Two Pictures of Copiah Pat.
Just before leaving Washington
last week Pat Winston contracted
with Puc&'s man for two cartoons of
himself. One picture represents Win
ston's receptioo into the republican
party ; Kcogh playing on the trom
bone, Wheeler on the bass violin,
Humphrey beating the drum, Ball
on the flute and O'Hara the bones,
the whole Republican band celebra
ting the grand entree of Winston
With most extravagant demonstrations
Pi delight, accompanied with the
loudest and sweetest strains of music
by the band. --
Second picture c Winston in the
form of a poor, scalded rat, sneaking
Bp to the Republican corn crib. Jn
the door sits Boyd with a Gatling
gun ; near him sits Keogh whisper
ng "keep cool and don't shoot until
you are certain that you will git
These pictures, Winston says, rep
resent Winston's status in the Repub
Jin party. York and his mule has
left out purposely.
Down Come Blaine and Logan.
The Big Fifth Avenue Banner Falls
and Puts Out All the Electric Lights.
New York 8un.
After Mr. B. F. John had sent out
his printed letters begging all still
loyal Republicans to chip in to the
Blaine campaign fund he ordered a
stout wire to be stretched from the
roof of the Republican national head
quarters at 242 Fifth avenue diagon
ally across the avenue to the third
story of the big apartment on the
corner of Twenty-eighth street and
rigged thereon a big Blaine and
Logan banner. The banner had to
be put up sideways, because the own
er of the house opposite the headquar
ters wouldn't lend his roof.
At 8:35 last night a sudden gust of
wind-slapped the Republican candi
dates in the face, pulled the iron fast
ening of the bauner out of the apart
tLeut house wall, and brought things
n with a crash on the electric
light wires thafcross the street. Mr.
B. F. Jones' wires cut half way
through the electric line. The cut
wire sputtered like a blue light for
an instant, and then all the tall glob
ed burnerd in the avenue from Madi
son square up to Forty-second street
went out with a puff, and left the
street nearly pitch dark.
"Gosh," said a. bystander as he-j
dodged to escape the tumbling net
work, "that's the third time that ban
ner's tumbled since it was put up. It
don't seem to catch on worth a cent."
The engineer in the electric light
supply station on West Twenty-fifth
street fooled with his dynamos till
midnight, trying to make them work
right, and then sent out an inspector
to find out what the matter was. He
found out after midnight that the wires
couldn't be fixed tHI mornings Mean
time policemen did patrol duty in the
dark, and pedestrians couldn't make
out anv of the house numbers.
Kissed the Wrong: Girl.
On one of the seats in a railway
train was a married lady with a little
daughter; opposite, facing them, was
another child, a son, and a colored
lady and a baby. The mother of
these children was a beautiful matron
with sparkling eyes, exuberant health
and vivacious spirits. Near her sat a
young lieutenant, dressed to kill and
seeking a victim.
By and by the train approached a
tunnel. The lieutenant leaned over
and whispered something in the lady's
ear. For the understanding proper
ly of this narattye we must tell the
reader what was whispered and what
was the reply.
"I mean to kiss you when we get
into the tunnel," whispered the lieu
tenant. "It will be dark who will see it?"
replied the lady.
Into earth's bowel's into the tun
nel ran the train. Lady and color
ed nurse quickly changed seats ; gay
lieutenant threw his arms around the
lady sable, pressed her cheek to his,
and fast and furiously rained kisses
on her lips. In a few minutes the
train came out into broad daylight.
White lady looked amazed ; colored
lady bashful, blushing; gay lieutenant
"Jane," said the white lady, "what
have you been doing?"
"Nothing," respouded the colored
"Yes, you have," said the white
lady, not in an undertone, but in a
voice that attracted the attention of
all the car. "See how your collar is
rumpled and bonnet smashed.
Janejpoor colored beauty, hung her
head a moment, the observed of all
observers, and then turning round to
the lieutenant replied.
"This man kissed me in the tun
nel." Loud ami long was the laugh that
followed among the passeugers.
Mb. Blaike ap the Mob. The
Louisville (Ky.,) Post of Monday last
says ; "The Cincinnati Commercial
Gazette reproduces in the editorial col
umns the worst part of the filthy scan
dals against Cleveland. The Post is in
possession of facts in regard to Mr.
Blaine's conduct while school teacher
in Kentucky, of the mob that threat
ened him, and of his submission to
avoid being lynched. If the Repub
licans continue this mode of making
war.it will be interesting to Mr. IJlaine
and his friends, A word to the wise is
From the Charlotte Observer.
Wilkesboro, July 28.
Politics is getting warmed up. Dr.
York has opened the caimpagn in
this county ; has made two speeches.
He was met at Trap Hill last Satur
day, 26th inst., by Col. W. H. 3.
Cowles, who handled the Doctor with
gloves off. Col. Cowles is a fine
speaker, and if Dr. York ever got a
whipping in his life Col. Cowles gave
it to him last Saturday. A large
crowd was present and enjoyed the
whipping hugely. Dr. York says he
will meet Gen. Scales at every ap
pointment if his "leetle mule" can
carry him. He who will never re
member riding his little mule to Ral
eigh as Governor of North Carolina.
Old tried and true Republicans look
upon Dr. York's electiou as an im
possibility. Dr. York is known as
the "one armed" candidate for Gov
ernor, having said when a Democrat
that if ever he left the Democratic
party his right arm might be taken
off. York cannot carry the negro
vote. Often has he said that were
he elected for any office by one vote,
and he knew that vote was a stiuking
negro vote, he would not have the
office. No wonder the negroes can't
She Forgets Something-.
A Simple Acknowledgement might have
Saved Her Seat.
The following incident took place
recently on a Massachusetts railroad
not many miles from Boston. Sever
al ladies entered the car at one of the
many stopping places and all obtain
ed seats except one. A middle-aged,
well dressed gentleman, who looked
like he might be a bank president
(not in an invidious sense) arose and
politely offered the latter his seat.
The lady (?) dropped into it without
so much as an inclination of her head
or a simple "thank you." The gen
tleman was evidently indignant. He
gazed at the lady a moment and then
stepping up to her said : "I beg your
pardon," pointing at the same time
to the back of his seat as if he had
left something in it. The lady arose
and the gentleman coolly dropped
into the seat, took out his paper and
commenced to read. A titter ran
around the car, and it was the unan
imous opinion of the lookers-on that
the lady had been treated no worse
than she deserved. She remained
standing for some time in evident
embarrassment, but nobody offered
her a seat, and at the next station she
moved into another car.
Blaine claims credit for the Repub
lican party and high taxes for all the
progress we have made since the war.
It seems to us he should take the
crop as it runs. What does he say
about the three hundred millions
spent on a navy that is worthless ;
about the millions stolen by the whis
key ring ; by the credit Mobilier ; by
the Indian ring ; by the star routers ;
what about the corruption in the army
where army officers have brought dis
credit on the uniform by their frauds
as illustrated by Howgateand Swaim;
what about the wanton squandering
of immense doraaius of public lands
on thievish corporations which had
bribed Congressmen to deal fairly by
the people, whose servants they were;
what about the profligacy that viti
ates the air of all the departments at
Washington ? He should take the
evil with the good. But the truth is
the country has progressed despite its
immoralities; despite its corruptions;
despite its excesses ; despite its heavy
burdens laid upon our prosperity by
the hand of the radical party. We
have been borne down by the weight
of these burdens. Relieve the people
of them and give them a fair chance
and we will prosper indeed. News &
From reliable authority the Regis
ter learns that typhoid fever prevails
to a great extent along the track of
the cyclone which passed through
Fairfield county last spring. Sever
al deaths have occurred in families
attacked by the fever, and physicians
have noted it as a singular fact that a
majority of the typhoid fever cases
are confined to the stretch of country
yisited by the cyclone.
ins said that there is to be a gen-
era! stoppage of the cotton spindles
in New England for at least one
month. I here is too much produc
tion and not enough consumption.
There is not enough consumption be
cause the people are not prosperous.
1 he people are not prosperous be
cause of the heavy taxation to which :
they are subjected. Think of it, the
government raises three hundred
millions of dollars where two
hundred millions would answer the
sr. a m . a
purpose. It takes from the people
$100,000,000 each year more than
the people ought to pay because the
government have no use for it. If
it is raised it will be squandered. It
is being raised. The people pay it
out of their pockets. It oppresses
them and destroys their substance.
Not only have the Northern cotton
mills shut down, but other lines of
industry as well. If something is
not done we will have a fearful win
ter. The matter is in the hands of
the people. They must decide. News
Perhaps the hottest region on the
earth is the Persian Gulf, where little
or no rain falls. At Bahrin, the arid
shore has no fresh water; yet a com
paratively numerous population con
trive to live there, thanks to the co
pious springs which burst from the
bottom of the sea. The fresh water
is got by diving. The diver sitting
in his boat, winds a great goatskin
bag around his left arm, the hand
grasping its mouth ; then he takes in
his right hand a heavy stone, to
which is attached a strong line, and
thus equipped, he plunges in and
quickly reaches the bottom. Instant
ly opening the bag over the strong
jet of fresh water, he springs upon
the ascending current, at the same
time closing the bag, and is helped
on board. The stone is then hauled
up, and the diver, after taking breath
plunges in again. I he source of these
submarine springs is thought to be in
the green fields of Osman, some five
or six hundred miles distant.
Cooking a Trout While on the
Hook. Jn the woods, near the
moutain crest, is a warm lake a hun
dred feet across; and three miles
from it, dowu below all the terraces,
near the Gardner river, a river of
scalding water rushes like a mill race
from beneath a ledge of rocks, and
flowing a few hundred yards, falls
into the Gardiner. Here it is that
one may catch a trout in the cold
stream, and without moving a step
swing him, still wriggling on the
hook into the hot river and boil htm.
I have seen it myself, and have tast
ed the fish so cooked ; but as epicures
say that 'a trout boiled is a trout
spoiled,' and as these were cooked in
boiling sulphur water, I cannot avoid
admitting that the morsel was not
very palatable. Ashley W. Cole, in
the Manhattan for August.
