The most singular boycott in the
history of Tennessee is on in Chatta-

faculty against drygoods firms some
weeks since a fair gul from Louisiana
a pupil of Centenary College-of Oeve-1
anna became enamored ot a nana
some clerk named Surgine. She was
sent in charge of a professor to this
xky from whence she was to take a
train for New Orleans. Her lover
-learned the fact in time to follow her

A very strange but true tale comes
from CorMM Chiiati of the suicide of

of the dog appeared to be tiuusuaHy

A few days ago Mr.Amudiowcutinlhe

A shower of rain at Sedalia Mo. the
moon which was less than an hour
from scttirg broke through a tilt of
clouds ai.d produced a clearly defined
rainbow upon the dark mass of clouds
in the east northeast. The colors
were almost as bright as those pro.
duped by sunlight four of them being
distinctly visible. The accompanying
shadow was plainly visible The arch

fully two mttutes before it passed
After ?orty Tears.
The grave containing the body of
Samuel Emery son of the late Jeffer-
son Davis was Opened a fev days ago
at Oak Hill cemetery in Washington
D C. It was found that the little fel-
low had been buried in a magnificent
San Domingo mahogany casket on
the inside oi which was a heavy lead
coffin. On the lid being drawn back
a skeleton was exposed though the
child died at an age when the bones
are not supposed to be solid A rela-
tive of the family was present at the
disinterment. The outside or mahog-
any casket was in a splendid state of
preservation the forty years' that have
passed since its consignment to the
earth having but littler effect upon it.
Lest the Power ef Speech.
Elmer Weathers a student at Eng-
lish Ind. who has had the measles
finds himself deprived of speech The
physicians declare this is the first case
of the kind within their knowledge and
cannot say whether the loss of speech
will be permanent or not. The unfor-

Army Worm in Illinois.
The old-fashioned army worms have
again visited the country about Salem

northwest of Salem 260 acres of fine
meadow has been completely eaten up
by the worms. Other meadows are al
An Xgg Within an Xgg.
L Samuels M. D. writes the St.
Louis Republic as follows: About two
weeks since Mrs. Lou Wilson at Sug-
arton. Mo. gathered up the eggs at
night as usual and found one of enor-
mous size s It was a hen egg and was
Wjargeas-ag0O3eegg and she con-
cluded to keep the shell; she thought
to puncture the shell at each end break
up the yolk and albumen and blow
them out. Taking a hat pin and in-
serting it at one end she discovered
another egg about as large as a guinea
egg nicely ensconced within thejarger
one. Your correspondent saw and ex-
amined the egg and can testify to 'the
correctness of the above.
Jewell the Rainmaker.
C B. Jewell the Rock Island rain-
.maker who has-been so successful in
bringing down rain at various points
along tbe line of that road in north-
western Kansas during the past thirty
days now operating at Meade in
southwestern Kansas where no rain
has fallen since August 3 of )a$t year.
The success which has crowned Jew-
ell's efforts is looked upon as the mar-
vel of the century and the Rock Island
management has detailed him to make
rain in all drouth.stncken sections
along its line and provided him with; a
palace car with all the comforts possi-
ble. Jewell is a practical electrician and
for the past year has been devoting his
entire attention to the study and com-
pletion of his scheme. He was located
at Goodland eighteen months ago
when Frank Melbourne went there to
contract with the people to supply
them with rain. He claims to have
discovered Melborne's secrets. He
made three successful attemntr at
Goodland and two at Menkato where
a drenching rain fell. At Menkato
the weather prognostications sent out
from Washington indicated clear and
dry weather. Jewell claims that h?
can have direct electrical communica-
tion with the clouds by means of cer-
tain gases; in. fact that he caq produce
clouds by sending these gases into a
clear sky. When this is done small
clouds begin to gather in all directi6ns
within a short n'rae jhe sky is shut put
by a solid ma$ of clouds from which
rainfall h eeHate. ' He savs that h

This idea he conceived uf the world's
fair in observing the aasenvions of bal
loons with a rop6 attached. When
this method is used be charges the
balloon with certain gases which ex-
plode when they come in contact with
moisture. These explosives are very
powerful and at once create a heavy
downpour and terriffic peals of thunder.
The result of the experiments he is
now making in southwestern Kansas
are awaited with great intereit by the
people Of the drouth stricken district.
A "Freak of Mature.
Isaac Brown of Elmwood Ohio has
a a.year-old bull with eighteen horns
some of which are nineteen inches
Mr Imre Kiralfy who is at the
Grand hotel in Paris has just been in-
terviewed by a French journalist on
his well-known method of selecting
ladies for tbe chorus by examination
of the hand and wrist.
He declares that be can judge the
female figure with practically unerring
accuracy in this way. He says that
the first knuckle joint shows the size of
the bip the seqond the size of the
knee and the last joint the height of
the instep while the wrist compared
with the hand shows the relative size
of the waist the fatty part of the
thumb the size of the calf and so on

it has been called -will tt has been
