"Perhaps you are right," Mrs. Stanford replied, more cordially than she had yet spoken; she loved to be looked up to as au thority in society matters. "If she is teach able and intelligent it may not be so bad, after all, but what a freak!" If people would only follow the Stanfords proposed example, and make the best of things in this vexing whirl of life, what a world of trouble would bo saved, but the most of us fret and worry, beating our wings against the inevitable, to the prema ture development of crows' feet and gray hairs.

Under a false pretext of dread negro suprem acy, a condition far more improhahle in any Southern city than Scandina vian supremacy might be in Minne apolis, there has been a steady re solve to keep the uttermost and most unreconstructible element of old rebel dom in power. The Southerner who talks of negro supremacy as a proba bility of a free ballot is generally a dupe, but the fraudulent beneficiaries of the deceit are the brigadiers, judges and majors under whose oligarchy the South still remains poor, ignorant and retrogressive. Richmond is in the county of Fort Bend, Tex. The vote of the county in 1S84 was Cleveland 317, Blaine 1..38S; in 1838 it was Cleveland 552, Harrison 1,967.
