However, the engagement of Flnley Pe ter Dunne, who has made "Mr. Dooley" famous, to Mlas Margaret Abbott, daugh ter of Mrs. Mary Abbott, has been announced. The author of the Dooley stories sent fort* the news to his friends from New York. The bride Is a former resi dent of Chicago, but has made her home In Paris for the past few years.

I certainly cannot assume such an attitude, and you must permit me to say that In my View it is an attitude no man, should assume, whether^ he looks at it from the standpoint of the true Interest of the wane man of the south or Of the colored man of the south - not to speak of any other section of the union. It seems to me that It Is a good thing from every standpoint to let the colored man know that if he mows tn marked degree the. ouallties of good Qltiaenshkp— the qualities whicirln a White man we feei are entitled to reward— then he will not be cut off from all hope of similar reward. . "Without any regard as to what my decision may be on the merits of this par* tleuler applicant for this particular place, I feel that I ought to let you know clearly my attitude on the far broader question raised by you and Mr. : an attitude from which I have not varied, during my term of office.

It Was Georgia's Bay. It was simply Georgia's day. to win and Auburn was at no time In the contest. The Alabama boys were excelled in every point of the game, and but for individual work on the part , of Webb, Smith, and Allison the playing of Auburn would have been far below the standard of tee other teams which have played to Atlanta this Georgia made her twelve points 'on two touchdowns In the first half. Both were msde by Harmon on long runs amid thundering cheers from the crowded grandstand and bleachers.

Nash villa Term., November 27.— (Special.)— The old gold and black went down in defeat today in one of the moat desperate battles ever seen In the south. Old time football men on the field de clared that they have never before seen two southern teams play up to the standard of today's game. When the referee called the game on account of darkness Davis and Edgerton. who had played their hurt game as amateurs, leaned against the goal posts and wept as If their hearts would break.

The result 'was a surprise to every one familiar with the records of the for the season, and to the snssaaera of both teams also. Sewanee money was hard to find at two to one. while Vanderbiit was betting even that they would beat Sewanee by ton points, and two to one that Sewanee would not score. Ciptain Phillips lost the toss and Davis eboee the south goal, there being a strong wind In the north. The field waa heavy. On the first kick - off Vanderbiit rushed the ball by end runs and line rushes through Bewaaee e 12 - yard line, where the teem was held for downs by Sewanee. • After securing the ball Sewanee showed equal aggressiveness tn advanc ing It but used only heavy mass formations.

Paris, November 27.— When the t regie death was announced' of Mrs. Gore, the beautiful American music pupil, the word went the rounds of the studios: "It has happened at last: goodby to American patronage of Paris art" Of course this wss an extreme view to take of the matter, out that It was In a measure warranted Is shown by the large number of telegrams young women students from the United States have received in the last feW days, either summoning them home or warning them to be careful In their choice of acquaintances. In one of the most celebrated nruato studios yesterday several of these telegrams were exhibited by young women pupils who knew Mrs. Gore, and had spoken of her in their letters home. There was a comparing of experiences, and a general feeling that their parents and guardians would no longer consider Paris a fit place for them. Every month or so there Is some sort of tragedy in the student quarter, but the case of Mrs. Gore Is the first in many years to possess features giving it worldwide celebrity. When an American girt has bean found dead in her garret room, or her body is dragged out of the river, it has usually happened tiatt she was some poor enthusiast without relatives or friends, trusting to luck and" her talent to make her way. At last fathers and mothers, living In the qulot western towns are. gtven their first and shocking knowledge of what student Mfe in Paris really Is.

Appieton, Win, November *T.— <Special.) ••G - ee,' ' the famous war dog and mascot who followed company O. of Appleton. all through the Spanish - American war, was burled today with full military honors by company G and Charles Obaer Spanish War Veterans* camp. It is doubtful whether the death of any member of the company would have caused the grief experienced by the soldiers over the loss of their mascot, Gee was their friend and counsellor, during the hard campaign He never grumbled at embalmed beef nor swore over hard, marches. When the boys were homesick he; would listen to their tales of woe and appreciate their sufferings. Gee enjoyed a battle immensely, and was never so happy as when he was in the midst of smoke and active hostilities. At night he was a model . sentinel, and was a constant visitor at the bedside of the sick Three days ago^wn^Gee was trotting down the street with the dignity becoming a veteran and savior of his country, a small boy. with a Fiobert rifle, thought him an excellent mark, and killed him. That thoughtless shot hurt the members of company G more than all the wounds and bruises they received during the W8I11TE STEAMER IS SYLVANUS J, MAGI She Loft Buffalo on Satnrday with a Cargo of Coal— Encountered Gale on Bcndav Wight Wreckage of Steamer Has Been Found.

When half wsy up Lake Erie, the gale was encountered and when abreast of Port BurWell the tow line of the barge was thrown off by the crew of the Macy. leaving the schooner to shift for herself. When last seen by the crew of the Wilson, the Macy was laboring heavily In the sea and waa evidently speeding for shelter. The Macy waa owned by P. J. Ralph & Co., of Detroit and was Insured for 116.500. She is one of the older type of wooden steamers. She registered Kt .tons. The first news of the disaster was reported by J. J. Auterson. of the steamer Albright, which passed up the river early t this morning. She reported having passed through S miles ef wreckage yesterday » miles southwest of Long Point, parte of Hfe preservers and' doors of some vessel. The cabin was painted whRe, but there Were no distinguishing marks to tell what vessel It waa from. The arrival of the Wilson, however, leaves no doubt but that the wreckage Is from the Macy. as the last seen of that steamer was In the near vicinity. * LTVB STOCK EXPOSITION. Chicago.
