4RE LAFATITTE ADYIRTISFR LAFAYETTE. LOUISIANA. The Samoan conference was carried on uin nglish. Spain is arranging for an international celebration on her own soil. The question of women sitting in county councils in England h been de. cided in the negative. Both France and Great Britain lead the United States so far as exports to South I America are concerned. During the first six months of the present year 1522 miles of new track were laid by the various railroads in the country. The question of leprosy in India is as suming a serious character. It is reportl that a British brigadier-general has ben sent home with the disease. Leading financial authorities report that there never was a period when so much investing was going on in purely industrial and commercial channels. Leprosy has existed in Norway for nearly a century. It is a hereditary dis ease, and breaks out among the children of Scandinavian settlers in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Illinois.

SLEEP. 1Iou best of all, Gods choicest blessing, Better than Earth can afford-wealth, power, fame: They change, decay; thou always art the /. same; Through all the years thy freshness thou dost keep; )ver all lands thine even pinions sweep. The sick, the worn, the blind, the lone, th lame, Bearing thy tranquil footsteps, bless thy name; *sh is soothed, sorrow forgets to weep. thou ope'st the captive's cell and bid'st him roam; Thou giv st the hunted refuge, fre'st the slave.

SOMETHING TO SWALLOW. the C ieizqo Times tells the most jemarkabe fs! yarn' of the season. ]h is ascribed to a $entuckiau, and runs as follows: "Thomas D. Snyder, in the Illinois Bank building, is a fisher of men, en ticing them to bite at his real-estate office. He hasn't had a rod in his hand since he played truant at school. Still he has a friend who, he says, was fishing in an Illinois river a short time ago when he caught a sixteen-pound plickerel. 'That is not extraordinary,' continued the good-natured real-estate man. 'Just as large fish have been caught befoi'e and will be again. But I am amured by him that when he opened the fish he found it had swal lowed a muskallonge weighing nine pounds. Opening the muskallonge, he found' in its stomach a four-pound black base, inside of whose stomach was a one and one-half pound yellow has, which in turn had swallowed a half-pound sunfish, and inside the lat tir was a beautiful ruby-throat hum ming bird, not yet dead.
