The affaif was brought to the notice of the emperor, who found that the substitution had been made by an official who pock" eted the watch himselt A similar mode of thieving practiced in Russia sent an official of high rank and family to Siberia. ,, '.'Tho Melancholy Days Have Come Tho saddest of the year," not when autumn has arrived, as poet Brj-ant Intirantes. but when a fellow gets bilious.

Like most new things, it is an improvement upon the old. Cyclones and blizzards are unknown to this section. The thermometer rarely goes below zero. Peaches, pears, prunes, plums, apricots, nectarines, apples, grapes and all kinds of small fruits grow to perfection. Also grain, hay'and all kinds of vegetables equal to any. The climate is free from dampness and malaria and almost a sure cure for those in the first stages of consumption. Good society, splendid schools and churches. A place for an ideal home. —Zeph. Chas. Felt, 207 Boston Building, Denver, Colo. Pretty Centerpiece for a Table. A pretty and nunsual centerpiece for a table is made as'follows:, .Plaice in a bowl hollowed in a square Of ice enough loosely piled cracked .ice to fill the space. In the interstices between the lumps of ice fasten pieces of smilax which will trail out and cover the equare block. The effect of the glittering ice and the delicate green tracery is charming.

Sellers eccentricities were known fnr arid whin. and about one year ago ho figured ^onspiououslv In die illustrated pftpcrs. He was a very close Bible 8ludonr ( nncl when a young man conceived ths Idoft' that no woman eVer wont to hoavdn. His reasons for remaining single were that he bel.oVoil that if ho married he Wduld be dtirsed with the woman of his cliolco. Regarding his personal appearance one Was greatly reminded of "Old Kip" or the pictures We see of "OldFather Time." He never shaved nor cut his hair, claiming it would be interfering with God's laws for him to do so. His .Ihigetvmiils were long aud bent over at the ends like claws, as also were his too nails, livery tiling ho used-or wore was honie-maclo. His lirst plow is a great curiosity and was made entirely of wood, something after the fashion of tho old German plow. All his farming utensils were hoino-mndo. Ho* would patron xo no one who used a sewing-macliinor At the table the knives and forks were Wooden, as wore also the plates, cups Uuid saucers. Sellers had a iloclc of sheep that had never boon shorn. The wool was sixteen inches long and dragged on the .ground. The reasons ho 'gave for not shearing his sheep wore that God placed tlio wool on their backs to,stay ^'fjj^., and keep tliem wiirm, and ho ''°'d a >t1i lt iu '' urf<3ro ' N Vith his plans by •rtimxr-rifrl; it. A short time before his. (i<jiilh tlio Society for tlio Prevention of Cruelty Uo Animals of ihis oily took the matter in hand and tried to compel him to shear his sheep, but without success. People came for"miles around lo see Sellers' sheep. 1 Ho was kiiowu to have been in good 'circumstances, and for years during his life deposited his money in one of our banks. During the latter years ho became suspicious of bauks and withdrew alibis money, which was principally ill gold. Ho purchased a dozen old-fashioned'gallon jars or crooks, with lids on. and, taking them homo, hid his. treasures away in these. His sister/states I hat he buried his treasures :. .always under cover of darkness, selecting..'different spots about his farm. The secret of the exact location, of thesis spots ho never revealed to anyone. >• How much wealth ho had accumulated will probable ..never bo known, as ; he'-trusted no one.' His sister will fall heir to his estate, and every precaution is taken to protect tlio place against m;dnight treasure-hunters. The six men who were detected a few nights ago digging for tho hidden treasure are supposed to have been residents of the neighborhood. It was noticed that they were supplied with dark lanterns, and commenced digging in ; tlio barnyard. From there they adjourned to a neighboring 'Hold and began operations. Humor has it that they made an important discovery in tho fluid, mid perhaps found one of the precious crocks. It has not yet been fully developed as to How much, if any, of the money they obtained. The ground will be thoroughly gone over under the direction of tho sister, and evory oilbrt will •be.made- to unearth the hidden treasure. A. Chance for the G-irls.

As a matter of fact, it was never part of that Territory j nor any other, and wo are now asking Congress to sot us off as an independent Territory, so that wo may make laws ami govbrn ourselves.

There was a time when there wore no fashion journals, just as there was a time when there-were no newspapers or magazines of any sort. Tlie French people then, as now, originated most of the ladies' fashions . for all the world, and, as they had no way of making pictures 'of Their now style or papers to describe Uiom in, they made up dolls in (lie latest French fashions and sent them -all over the. world.

"SB ';w ';$ .;'$ 1 '.' *& Veils and Bonnets. There is room for an instructive treatise upon a subject entitled "Why Women's Bonnets Don't Look Well." So many foolish virgins and matrons ruin otherwise charming toilets 'by the way they put on their hats, which are often equally charming in themselves. A bonnet put on too far back or dancing over the eyebrows with a Smooth space where the hair is brushed up or down showing beneath the bonnet aud the coiffure is always ugly and quite destroys the style of the bonnet. Then a veil worn with a bonnet for which no veil is intended, and which hides the trimming with inartistic folds of netlike swaddling clothes, is a common mistake. If a veil'is worn with such a bonnet at all, it should bo one of single width and put on with great care, so that the flowers or other trimming are only softened and not concealed. Roche Tort's Recollection*. Henri Rochefort begins his memoirs by giving the recollections of his grandparents. His grandmother was in the Place de la Concorde when Marie Antoinette was executed, and described the queen as stupefied and so limp that she had to be lifted from the cart to the scaffold. His father saw the troops swear infidelity to the "Acte Addition- el" of Napoleon on June 1, 1815. The emperor was dressed in a troubador costume of white satin, with a crimson mantle. He looked very ridiculous, for his fat body was supported by thin little legs, and the white satin made his flabby, bilious face look green . Jnpnnoso Women. , ' While Japanese women, says a traveler, do not have their feet compressed and are not compelled to wear veils, . and wife beating is. extremely rare, they have very little to say about their own destinies. They are expected to be , 1 womanly—kind, gentle, pretty, obedient ,' and useful—but from birth to burial • they are subject to a certain form.of '^ slavery that is shocking to the woman ' of the.western world. The experience of women in Japan is summed up in the ' word "obedience." They'have a phrase in Tokyo which describes the history of all women. It is "the three obedreqjces" —obedience, when unmarried, to a father; obedience, when married, to a husband; obedience, when widowed, to a son,, and when a woman dies she is forgotten. 0- Cheap Rates te Atlanta and Return.
