IE -:- TRUE :- DEMOCRAT. PUBLISHED WEEKLY AT rST. FRANCISVILLE, LOUISIANA. The late Professor Boyesen, of Col anmbia, noted that "joenlarity" is the "'leading American mental trait" of the college student. They phrase matrimonial advertise ments very delicately in Maine. One recently printed in Hallowell voiced a want for a "housekeeper in.a family of one." Is Scotland getting steadily madder? 'To judge by the report of the Com missioners of Lunacy it is. Since 1858 there has been an increase of 142 pe:r cent, in number of lunatics, while the population has increased only 38 per cent. A proof of the fact that Sedan Day is dying out in Germany, writes Wolf von Schrierband, is furnished by a re cent circular issued by the firm of FreAKrupp in Essen. They announce that hereafter the day will not be cel ebrated and no leave will be granted to their 20,000 employes. Mr. Freemantle says in his 'Notes on the Rifle' that an ideal smokeless powder has yet to be discovered, and that the heat ...

TTE - TRUE :" DEMO RAT. PUBLISHED WEEKLY AT rBT. FRANCISVILLE, LOUISIANA. It is beginning to be believed that -the hated mole is really a friend of the farmer. Examination ot moles' stomachs shows that they feed mostly upon worms, grubs, beetles and other enemies of the husbandman. The Deutsche Seetelegraphengesel. ischaft is not a nut for the curious to crack; it is merely the name of a com pany incorporated in Germany, with a capital of $890,000, for the purpose of laying a cable between Germany and Spain, which ultimately will be con tinued to the United States. iMany recent crimes have shown what facilities the bicycle gives crim inals for escape. The most daring as well as the most atrocious of these was the robbery of a bank in Mince eota,accompanied by the murder of the cashier. The criminals rode away on wheels and their escape seemed to be secured. It is pleasant to observe that both of them were nevertheless caught and that the more desperate of the two was killed, though...

'For miles and miles, even now, the solemn, moss-draped woods stand som ber and silent, given over forever to reptiles and wild beasts, and for league upon dreary league the tall glass covers the cosy, slimy marshes where no liv ing thing is visible save the wide winrad birds and the wallowing alli gate'es.
