AGRICULTURAL H INTS. EXTREMES IN PIGEONS. footers and Fantalls Are Two Hobble ol Scotch Fanciers. It would require a large volume to enumerate all the varieties of pieeons. and a wonderfully interesting work it would be if it. could carry us throug-h all the experiments and changes that have been used in producing the varia tions from the original Blue Ilock pig-eon. It is difficult to understand how all these changes have been brought about, how even the most thoughtful breeding and selection could produce so many wide differ ences. We have over one hundred va rieties, as different in outward appear ances as so many kinds of wild birds, yet all so quick to revert to the original stock if allowed to breed in discriminately. In the illustration are seen two favorite hobbies of the Scotch pigeon fanciers, each brought to its highest state of perfection in Scotland. Long before the days of poultry and pigeon shows these two extremes were bred to these astonishing forms, and now that th...

CUBAN ANNEXATION Likely In b Ttumlnc Question In tha Mczt Concress Independence or Rpaln Assured Th Jiext Step Will Naturally be to Reek ITotertloii I'nder the Fold of the Stars and Stripes American Interest tn Cuba. Chicaoo, Aug. 30. A WashinK'-ou special to an evening' paper says: Annexation will be a burning ques tion in the next congress; but the pivot upon which it will turn will be Cuba instead of Hawaii. Private ad vices received at the state department in the last twenty-four hours indicate that the independence of Cuba is but a question of a short time. The news has none of the features of a surprise to our diplomatists. The inability of Spain to quell the revolution has been apparent for some time and the reason was. as plainly to be seen, in the fact that Gen. Cam pos, the Spanish military leader, lacked the support of the conservative elements of the island. The commer cial interests of Cuba have not been in full sympathy with the insurrection ists for the very pood reas...

FASHION LETTER. Ooetunee for thn Autnmn Glrl-Plaldad Fabrics Will Be Popular. Special New York Correspondence. The "autumn girl" is slowly, but surely, making herself ready to replace the ubiquitous "summer pirl," who has had it all her own way for months past. But who can deny, after all, that the "autumn pirl" has not the better time of the two? She feels, and certainly looks, better than was possi ble during the sultry heat of midsum mer, and who could resist a smiling girl buttoned up to her rosy face in a jaunty fall coat, out for a spin or a mart walk on an autumn afternoon. The array of things charming1 for the face is quite ec tempting and elegant as anything the waning tea Bon has presented. Many of the chic, light wool mohairs and shepherds' check costumes that have prevailed will continue to be worn until winter, but these will be added to by a host of as stylish and handsome fabrics in fancy mixed meltons, English tweeds serges, sackings and tailor cloths, as have ever b...
