like the dwcbarge of II Y I I Ic f t f t musketry In ten minutes enough had been raised to defray all expenses On motion Judge F S Moore was instructed to draw up u petition to the senate asking it to vote against the bill It was circulated throughout the city Wednesday by several prominent citizens and receivad between 800 and 900 subscribers Tais was forwarded toI cal Wm Thorne president of the senate I On auction Judge Kearby and Judge Navlor were instructed to draft suitable telegrams to be at once dispatched to Hon Henry George and to the presi dent of the senate notifying them of the action taken and requesting that body to defer action until our delega tion could arrive Ifwas reported that muss meetings were also held at Cuyce Jordan and Madrid Bend to protest against the bill What is known as the Hargrove bill introduced by our representative and which passed the lower house Monday provides that the terms of the circuit court be divided and that it hold one week in Hickman and one week in Fulton of each term When the term is a three weeks one the time is to be equally divided between the two towns The result of such ti bill becoming a law would be eudlese confusion great expense and inconvenience untold risk in the transfer of records and valuable papers thousands of dollars to be paid out for mileage for witnesses and jurors the maintenance of two seats of government so far as the court Is concerned two county jails two county court hones for If the bill be comes av1aw Fulton can force thecounty- to provide both jail and court house and finally such a tangle that the countys affairs would never become straightened out It is without doubt the most absurb bill ever introduced lalo any legislature It was coacejved I i P r 1 and introduced solely for the benefit of Fulton at the expense of Hickman and it can safely be said that twothirds of the voters of Fulton county are stren uously opposed to it It should never have been introduced but now that it has gone beyond the first stage it should be strangled before it hash an opportunity to do the damage it is intended r to By concerted action on the part of the western portion of the county this can certainly be done Let everymau put a plug in where he thinkSife will do the most good and the bill eau yet be killed ype The New Court House For the first time since Its comple tion we were shown

1 I fay =JUKGKOVE Bit PASSED h At 1245 oclock the Houie took from the orders of the day the bill by Mr Hargrove of Ful ton providing that in Fulton county the holding of Circuit Court alternate between the towns of Fulton and HJcknmu the town of Fulton being larger than file county seat and twenty miles distant The Hargrove bill was put upon its passage and passed by a vote of 50to 9 Titeiforegoing from the Louis rifle Tiitnes of Monday came as- a clapof thunder from a clear sky No intimation of any such action on the part of our representative lirid star reached Hick man and as a consequence the town was at once thrown into considerable excitement Steps were immediately taken to check the bill before it passed the senate aril becomes a law petitions were circulated being generally signed which will be forwarded to Senator George asking him to use his influence ta defeat the measure Consid enable talk was also heard of tel graphing Hon Ityler who is now in Washington to go t the capitc1 to fight the bill bti whether or not this will be can not be said There is no doubt that tai American farmer directly and1 the whole people indirectly woul d gain much by the stimulus the good roads movement would receive front an appropriation from congress sharing with the different states half the cost of the new roadways There iis only one argument against put ting this plan into effect at oncet and that is the danger of open iti appropriations and graft in their expenditure If there could be some assurance against turning the plan to the advatnge of reel lass legislature and corrupt con orn der it carried autrfhey want no more river and harbor grabs or public buildings steals or rural free delivery plpnd There are plenty of arguments again opening the

said an observant New Orleans man and recently I had oc casion to know of a very curious case of this sort It was In the experience of a young lady who lives uptown and the story came to me through a member of her family who had been very much amused by the happening I had become familiar with this pecul iar condition in my own family and had come to look upon it as simply a condition of drunkenness not a mat ter of simple sleep walking as is often supposed to 1 e the case Walking In ones sleep is quite a different thing from sleep drunkenness Yet these conditions are often confused- In the cue I have in nand you have a good expamle of sleep drunk enness The young lady was simply drunk I am glad life is nqt around to hrar me say It but she was drunk Late in the night her mother was roused from her slumbers by a noise in the room as If some one was trying to strike a match She raised up and asked who iit was and her daughter answered Vhnt are you trying to do her mother asked I am trying to strike a match the young lady answered And that was what she was trying to do But she never succeeded though she used every match in theboxNow here is she funny part of the matter The young lady was not using matches at all in her effort to make alight There was a box of pens on the mantel and she had scratched every one of them against the mantel thinking they were match es and when they would not strike had thrown them down on the hearth She was simply drunk with sleep and could not tell the difference between a match and a writing pen though the difference Is very marked and may be easily detected by the sense of touch I have known of many instances of similar sort It Is just a matter of sleap drunkenness thats all INDIANS ENTER SOCIAL LIFE hurry Ijdir ntt Wife

napkin at the end of the meal is left un folded at the left side Bread Is always broken in small pieces never cut and never crumpled into soup or sauce Soup is taken from the side of the dpoon which is filled by drawing it up from the opposite edge of the soup plate Soup of course must be taken noiselessly No one takes a second helping or tips the plate to secure the last mouthful Fish in days past was taken with a fork supplemented by a bit of bread nowadays a silver knife is allowable forks and knives for fish being made of a special pattern All vegetables are eaten with a fork asparagus with a knife and fork although It may be eaten with the fingers if one prefers to do so A very safe rule however Is never to touch any bit of food with the fingers It possible Peaches and pears are peeled cut in half and then broken by the fork and thus eaten An orange may be cut in half and then eaten with an orange spoon or It may be peeled entirely then divided into sections and eaten with a fork All pies are eaten with a fork only and most puddings except custards which require a spoon Soft cakes are eaten with a fork while Jellies no mat ter how hard are eaten with a spoon There are dozens of people who would be mortally offended by the sug gestion that they ate with a knife But they must be careful how they thrust a knife into a dish of sweets or ofI any sauce and convey a portion of these to pieces of bread or cake This Is a most unfortunate breach of tab manners 6 In using the knife and fork a movtj TJ1ent of lhe wrist and not of the el is the proper thing we

companion One was soon tarnished a browneyed stralghthaired calld of 15 or more slender and Il developed for her age but bright of face and gentle of voice Her mother had evidently neglected her home and herwork and consequently her small daughter so that the girl was poorly nourished and shabbily clad The New York Tribune tells of her experi ences in what was to be her summer home jTho mistress of the house had occa sion to send the girl on one or two er rands Whlch moneyttransactional whlch were accomplished with accuracy and judgment But when dishwashing time arrived four hours were cOnsumed in getting some 20 or 30 pieces put way In the china closet To begin with Emmeline as the girl was called was discovered with the dishpan on the floor while she herself stood beside it bending over from the hips to reach the dishes Why Emmeline exclaimed her employerwhy do you work in that awkward way Why dont you put the pan on the table The bottom of its dirty maam and I wanted to keep the table clean was thereplyDid never help your mother about the house Emmeline her mis tress risked her one day when she was particularly awkward in performing some simple work Nom was the answer She says shed rather do a thing a dozen times than tell me how So the child had been allowed to grow up far from robust in health and almost wholly without a knowledge of how to keep herself from starvation or want even with an abundance of raw mate rials about her She could not sow neat ly and had little idea of cleanliness but she was alert and anxious to please when any direct request was made of her The poor child was only a sufferer for the sins of a careless and improvident motherWhy didnt you put the new chimney on the lamp asked her employer one jday seeing the old cracked globe still in place I It isnt clean was the reply Such a thing as making it clean had appar ently never occurred to her She seemed incapable of taking responsibility She was greatly surprised when asked if she did not get her own meals while her mother was out at work Why I Just eat what shes left till she gets back explained this child of the slum She was familiar with several of Shakespeares best plays and could ielte verses from the poems of reI tknown writers but the glamour of the Street shadowed even these mental pos sessionsWholly without judgment in most matters and lacking

every speaker who had known that gifted woman had something to say about the charm of her voice says Youths Companion So sweet was it that in the words of Miss Anthony men used to say tbat they couldnt help voting for woman suffrage if she asked them to do so Her name was always put last upon meitlngbecaupresston upon an audience The current literature of Great Britain is full of slighting allusions to the voices of American women They are justified in a number of cases alas far too large But an American wom ans voice need not be loud and shrill Nothing in her constitution nothing in the climate requires it so Vo be It Is true that weak utterance or a cracked voice may proceed from ill health but the high nasal tones that our foreign critics find so disagreeable are almost invariably due to ghee r heedlessness Nobody needs to be told that nois and emphasis are different things but people forgetand scream and every such outburst whether of Joy or of anger coarsens the voice especially If as Is frequently the case the las breath in the lungs is used IB the effort Bathe deeply speak slowly and keep aeven temper is the advice a specialist gives the girls at a famous
