T.HE DEMOCRAT. B. H. ADAMS, Publisher. CAPE GIRARDEAU. MISSOURL HIliTY years ago there was a grand brick house, stand- i ng in the midst of a street old gar den, on one of the pleas- antest sites of the famous Richmond hill. It had once been the residence of a noble family, but it was at that time only a celebrated school for young' ladies. The house itself was a plain, substantial brick one, and there were plenty in the vicinity that in every point excelled it; but nowhere was there a garden of gTealer loveli ness than its high brick walls shut in. This was especially so in the morn ings and evening's, when the alleys and thr hazel walks and the woodbine arbors were full of groups of beautiful young English girls girls with flow ing brown hair and eyes as blue and clear as heaven, and faces innocent and fresh as if each face had been made out of a rose. But even where all are beautiful, some one will be found loveliest of all, and Laura Fal coner was the acknowledged belle of the u...

PERSONAL AND "IMPERSONAL. The recent reduction in price of aluminium has called renewed atton . tion to the possibilities of the use of aluminium-bronze castings for pur poses in -which the strength of forged steel without its liability to corrosion are essential. Its price should now be t not much above that of ordinary gun bronze. Every good cook is careful to dis pose at once of the water in which meat has been washed. Only a very few hours are necessary to change it into a foul-smelling liquid if the tem perature .is suitable. This change is ' due to 4 little plant called bacterium tenh'o."

Though Severe. : Kot So Bad an Expected. Nbw York, Aug 25. R. G. Don & Co.a weekly review of trade issued to day nays: Changes during the pr-st week have not been definite nor very complete. As the president's final decision re garding the new tariff is assured, but not yet certainly known, part of the hesitation which appears may be attributed to the uncertainty which must soon terminate. Othei conditions, if not entirely favorable, have at least not changed for the worse during the past week. The injury tc corn is less than many apprehended, but is still believed to have reduced the yield about 500,000,000 bushels.

Drainage, is being' studied now by farmers as never before, and in all sec tions of the country it is becoming- a matter of first importance. There are very few farms upon which more or less tiles conld not be used with great profit, and as a rule the farmer who begins to drain his farm will be so fully convinced of the benefits derived therefrom that -.he Will, continue putr uujt in Grains untu he has finished the work on the whole farm..
