Some startling developments May come of the trial and it May be that warrants will be issued for the arrest of a number of Whites on the charge of inciting the indians to such mutinous and riotous conduct. Florida philosophy. Life is an Oyster that very often turns out to be bad just As we get ready to eat it. Life is a rooster that crows even in the presence of death. Truth is a virtue but a mighty awkward one to handle in a horse Trade. Death is a whip and with famous persons it has a Cracker on the end. Death is so Swift that it overtakes everybody and yet so slow that anyone can Eatch it. Many a Man thinks that he is in love when he is simple a Little bilious. Love is like the foam on a Glass of Beer. It looks pretty but you soon get tired of it. In too Many cases marriage is simply a polite serfdom. When a woman is engaged to be married she thinks that life has just begun for her. When a Man is engaged to be married he spends most of his time wondering if he Hasni to made a big mistake. Girls at a dance. The girl that has the Best time at a dance is the one that looks fresh Bright and Happy. She May not be pretty she May not be Clever but she will have numerous partners and a thoroughly Good time. Therefore it behoves every girl not to look tired and to guard against this she must have comfortable shoes. A shoe that pinches in the least is bound to stamp on the girls features a tagged expression before the evening is half Over. Yeta shoe May not Pinch and still be very fatiguing. A Slipper especially May slip up and Down at the Heel if too Large and cause almost As much discomfort As a cramped feeling. Consequently the girl that wishes Success in the Ball room should look Well to the Comfort of her shoes. Program for the Chautauqua Circle for Jan. 17, 1896. Growth of american nation a. C. Titus.

Baltimore md., january 7, 1896.�? dear or. Editor a among the most common Street cries Here Are those of the fish men. These cries differ somewhat according to the age of the Vendor and the kind of fish he has to sell. Some of the men Are quite old and they kind of creep along with their baskets and Call out a fre Esh fee mesh fre mesh fee mesh a drawing the words out Long and making them sound very doleful. The Young men walk along brisk and swing their baskets and cry loud and Lively a fresh fish fresh fish Here a your Fine fresh White fish Perch and Haddock a they go up and Down the streets and into the alleys their voices sounding now far away Down the Street then coming nearer and nearer until the air is ringing full of it and then As they go on the sound grows fainter and fainter and Dies away. Some times when the weather is Fine and the men Are feeling Good two Young darkies will Call against each other till the folks in the neighbourhood can to hardly hear themselves think. Well maybe the fish Man has gone along and you Are sitting quietly Reading when All at once you will hear a wild yell of a a Miyoi Miyoi Miyoi a the voice going away up in a shriek As if some person were in dreadful pain or awful mad but nobody pays much attention to it for its Only a Man with oysters to sell. They carry the oysters from door to door in Large tip buckets and have pint measures to dip them out with. Then again there Are the fruit men. Oranges and bananas Are hawked about in baskets and Small push carts mostly by boys and italians. The italians Call out a Fine Banano of Only Only one cent apiece a if they Are quite Good but if they Are not so Good they will sell them for eight or even five cents a dozen. Or it will be a Sweet oranges Only Twenty a dozen Sweet oranges Sweet oranges a men in wagons drive along shouting a a Puls a Puls Good cooking a Puls Nice eating a Puls a Puls a Puls cooking a Puls eating a Puls a Puls a Puls cooking eating a pulse eating cooking a Puls Only ten a Quarter Peck a Puls a Puls a Over and Over again. The vegetable men cry a a Sweet Pota toes cabbage cooking cabbage Slaw cabbage big Irish potatoes Quot Only ten a Peck a and any one listening to them might think they never stopped to take a breath. There is one cry that we could t make out for quite a while. It sounded special y j to the ladies of Blackfoot and Vicinity we wish to say that having secured the exclusive Sale we will keep in Stock the entire line of a. J. Johnson Csc cons celebrated line of ladies shoes a and oxfords none a genuine unless stamped a. J. Johnson amp co., Rochester new York. We have just received our first shipment by express for the Holiday Trade. They have no equal either for Quality workmanship or Wear. Call and look at the line. C. Bunting amp company. Are you troubled like a fresh tra Raba fresh tra Raba and it is a fresh trapped the Baltimore boys have a Peculiar Call. When a boy wants another boy to come out on the Street and play or fight he stands outside of the other boys House and gives a combination of an ear splitting yell and a blood curdling howl that fetches the other boy out in a hurry. Sometimes a lot of them will get together and give this Call just for fun and it makes people Stop their ears. Besides these noises Are the knife Grinders who ring a Little Bell and the milk wagons with gongs that sound like fire alarms. There is no end to the men and women who come to the door and ring the Bell and want to sell everything under the Sun i think. My but some of them can talk if you give them half a Chance. Every few Days men come by with tin Ste pans and tin dishes of All kind to Exchange for old clothes and occasionally a Man drives along the Street with a rack something like a Wood rack and he Calls out a flour barrels a and if you have an empty flour barrel you can sell it for five or ten cents. The newsboys Call their papers Here As they do in other cities. There Are a great Many of them and some Are very Small. There Are a Good Many beggars although they Are not allowed to beg openly but on lonely streets especially about dusk they will be quite bold if no policemen Are in sight and there Are some who go from House to House. A Little boy about six years old with his sister who is younger sometime come to our door about dark and ring the Bell and when i open the door the Little girl is sitting out on the Doorstep holding a Basket while the Little boy stands by the door and says a got anything to and they Are very glad of any cold food we give them. There is also a boy about ten years old who comes for food and an old woman with a Basket pretty near As big As she is and sometimes she has it Chuck full of food and then she leaves it out of sight on the Steps while she stands in the outside door and talks awful pitiful to the ladies and they give her More. There Are four italian girls about ten and twelve years old who come every few Days by the Alley Way and look ail through the garbage boxes for Bones or pieces of meat or bread. If they find a pretty Good piece they will eat it right there and chatter away like Birds. Down in the business part of town Are quite a number of dwarfs and cripples and Blind men who have a few Little pins or matches or spools of thread a which they pretend to sell but though people give them Money i Don t think anyone cares to take their goods. Every beggar puts on a pitiful face and whine. The boys will come up to a person and say a please give me a Penny just one Penny sort i Kin buy me a biscuit. In a Star Vinyl and draw Down their faces but if you give them a Penny they Grin and run off to tackle some one else. Baltimore is a very benevolent City and if a person is really poor they Are taken care of. I Hope soon to pay a visit to a great newspaper building and then i will write you about it. Raymond l.
