After finishing breakfast at the station where the train atop pad Lor that Pur Doss the distiller again approached him and they went together into the smoking car and eat Down to smoke together when he again began to talk whisky. He began by saying Ahat is wanted to Tell colonel Hunt frankly Bow they did business there and Hunts Cue was to get As much out of him As be could among other things be said my Bouse paid your predecessor 1,000 a month and the other houses 1» new Orleans paid in the same proportion making Bis in onto irom the distilleries alone Frota 12,000 to 14,000 a month end we want to make the same arrangement with you.

You will Uever be known in id matter As there it no possible Way or it to leak out. Colons Baal replied that Bla course would not be governed by that of any owner who had gone before him that be of Naldred his appoint sni to the place be held attributable More to the fact that it Wae thought that he Wea honest to non anything else and that or did not pro Folk to dec tour anybody and 11 we icky was made in new Orleans it must be made according to Law if be could make the distillers do it.

To the editor of the Sentinel. Sir during the sunday morning services at the methodist Church in this place a week or so ago three ladles in company entered the Church and were conducted by the Haber to a Pew in front of and near to pulpit. As the visiting ladles were in the act of seating themselves the Only occupant of the Pew at the time arose and with something of a haughtiness in her manner Aud a glance of Bor eyes intended no doubt to be withering entered an objection a la Everts but condescending at the same time to say by Way of explanation that the Pew waa engaged. Í be ladles who had fondly imagined that be Pew a in this Church were free could not take in the situation and hesitated in doubt probably As to what course to pursue. At this juncture a Hoss who by some mysterious interposition of Providence has escaped the last epizootic arose in the midst of the congregation and in an abrupt not to say has tila manner informed the ladles Balaam is ass spoke you know and w to should t this Boas that the aforesaid Pew was engaged laying great stress on the word engaged. This was emphatic and there waa no mistaking its meaning and so the ladles had no recourse Bat to retrace Belr Steps Aud Endeavor in some other part of the building to find a seat that was not engaged. Of course All this was very pm Tiarra Stag to them sad left them in anything but a proper mood to enjoy the Sermon which followed. Just at this time mrs. Mom and daughters upon to invitation of the Hornea proceeded to occupy the Pew which had Ueen denied the other ladle. Now Pray or. Editor Bofia mrs. Moss that she should be accorded any More privileges or courtesies than Are extended to other respectable and Well behaved ladles Yon say she is the Wile of the president of the University. Hoss occupies a position under him. It is policy with ■ the Bosses to ingratiate them Elve into the favor and Good esteem of the muses to that the to Sass and the mosses May float joyously and peacefully Down in the Stream of life in the same Canoe the Hosea very condescendingly however doing All the paddling.

She probably did not know to Coroum Atances under which the Pew wee retained Lor her and 1 do not believe that with a knowledge of it she would Sanction any snob proceeding. But to conduct of or.
