It Didn't End Bight.

The otfh'nler, a small man of quiet denitunor, looked up and remarked that he was not hurting the seat, he was hanmaering on cast iron. "I can't help that, sir," said the brake ,an. "Suppose we let everybody crack ants on the car seats; don't you see it would deface them ? I tell yon it won't do. You'll have to stop it.' "I'll lpy for all the dUamage I do," said N the little man, bringing his knife handle d down on thle nut again. "You'll get out of the car if you don't quit.

The thought of finding our lost kindred kept up our flagging spirts. We had been told that Louisiana was a laad of enhantment, where a perpe tual spring reigd. A land where the soil was extremely fertile and where the climate was so genial and temperate, the sky so serene and aaure that it well merited the name of Eden of America. To us, it smiled in the distance like the promised land and towards ttat de lightful lead we .bent our tired and weary steps, leanging for the day to dawn whom we should tread its soil and brea ths m more she pure air in which oao ted the banner of France.

Wild Westera Tarns. A boy, the only son of a widowed mother, says the Bismarck (Dak.) Tr. ' uhe, was lost near Ashland, and while wandering around the prairie he found a ten-cent pieoe. Walking into Ashlanld, he told his story to one of the many gen erous real estate agents, who sold him an option on a lot. On the following day the boy sold the property and pur chased a controlling interest in a rail road, and made his mother a present of a diamond necklace, which he ordered from Paris. The boy was only 2 years old, or he might have invested his 10 cents to better advantage. A young man, 20 years of age, pur chased a suburban house and lot in Sioux City. He went out to look at the lot. lie halted on his journey to get married. When he reached the prop erty he found a cosy little home for his wife and family, the only event to mar the pleasure of the trip being the death of his little granddaughter, who died from exhaustion.

THE CREOLES OF LOUISIANA; Or, Reminiscences of an Old Acadian. BY FELIX VOORHIES. The end of my story will be quickly told, petilets. Shortly afterwa.rd we left for the country of the Attakapas, where lands had been granted to us by the government. We wonded our way to our destined homes through dismal swamps, through lakes and lagcone; through I aycus % ithout iumber until we resehed "Portage, Sanuvage" the place now called "Faueaa Poiate," and the next day we arrived at St. Martin, the "Poets des Attakapua,"a small hamlet composed of two or three houses, one store, and a little wooden church. There the different Acadian familes separated, each to settle on the land granted to them. These families were the LeBlanIe, Martin, Brouseard, Guil beaux Bernard, Arceneaux, Babin, Breaux, Robicbesux, Bebert and Dugas. You mnst not imagine that the Atta hapms region was at that time dotted all over, like nowadays, with thriving farms, elegant houses, and handsome villages. NoW pettots, it re...

My arde. Fence. I have made the fence around the gar den of woven wire and like it very much; but I have put it to use to train gra1ie vies upon as a a trellis, and I can twine the shoots as I please in the loops. It makes a perfect garden fence and serve as a fence around the poultry yard, letting in light and air; it also protects those little plots inl the lawnl, where the beddling plants luxuriate, from theit ex cursiolns of poultry, and it protects the youte- apple trees firo the rabbits. (A valuable suggestion.) I have tried many remedies to prevent theirgnawing rounig alqtle trees, which they prefer; iut they like to nip Norway rual,e, beeches and liu:,h.ns as well; but at last I placed the woven wire fence fastened to posts around the field, and this is a permanent safegb:ard.

Diversified Industries. The prosperity ot Louisiana largely depends upon a diversification of indus try. Year by year the people are realiz ing the Importance of this fact and slowly bat surely the rigid bonds of old systems are being torn asunder and new, better and reasonable methods are taking the place of the fascinating eut inordi nate worship of the great staples, cotton and sugar. The planter of old carried his eggs in one basket and the failure of a sugar or eottoe crop, often meant debt, mortgage and fnallyruin. While the sugatr plan ter entangled ia the machinery of a com pileated industry has not yet been able to extricate himself and occupy the posi tion reached by the cotton planter, still there is an active movement in progress to seperate the mananeturing from the agricultural departmen, sad to gain that independenee of action which i so eantial to sueeessfutal farming.

A DETECTIVE STORY. LUCK OFTEN HELPS THEM OUT OUT OF' A DILEMMA. 1he Young Man who had his Hand E ('iught in a Trap. Ten or twelve years ago, when I was t tn the dct'tive fo,re of Cincinnati, two 1 or three very shrewd rnsals "hung up" 4 the town for three or four weeks in a way which annoyed uis inot a little. They were chaps known as porch climb eras, and the way they did their mlusiness was simply slick. Porch climbing was then in its infancy. A sneak thief might be ready to take advantage of an open door or window on the lower story, bat as for "shinning up' a column to reach a balcony, or using a light ladder to en ter a chamber window, no one had ever tried it. The very first job dose by the gaug resulted ina haul of x000 worth of jew- I elry. Your common thief no sooner has any plunder in his hand than he hastens i off to the pawnshop to make a raise. This jewelry was not put up, neither were the second and third hauls. Then we knew that we had to deal with ras eels who had c...

State Finances. Notwithstandiog the fact that Loulia as pays a higher rate of taxation than n any other Southern State, our 4 per cent bonds are lower than any other state. Notwithstanding our taxes that are promptly, collected, our finances are in b a desperate and constantly depreciating condition for the reason that in dfinee d of the Constitution, the Legislature and the Governor have approved bills making appropriations in excess of the revenue and we now have a large floating debt which no body has even attempted to de fend or excuse. This floating debt, which has been ereated in defiance of the Con stitution, is a constant source of irrita tion and embarrassment and no doubt c the respit will be that it will be bonded and so increase our debt by something over 2,000,000! This is not the worse of it! The Legislature and Governor will go on creating further foating debts and at the end of another four years still anoth er bonding operation will be in order. If the people of Lou...

This case was tried at Baton Rouge Wednesday last. The verdict was a genuine surprise to the people, and has nearly prostrated Mr. Strong. A new trial will be asked by his coun sels and in case of a refusal, will appeal to the Supreme Court. A Little Rejoicing. The very few friends and supporters of Gov.
