Yesterday morning about 8 o'clock a
strange atmospheric phenomena was
noticed in the heavens, consisting of a
streak of white extending from the
southwest portion of the sky almost
diagonally across to the northwest. So
bright was its light that a snap shot
taken by Mr. Brooks made a distinct im
pression on the plate. It was also vis
ible this morning, with perhaps a little
less brightness. No one seems to under
stand juet what it is, as nothing of that
nature has been noticed here previously. tj

prisoner is' given that any ladies wh$
wish to prepare, bouquets may have
them in readiness. Whether he be
guilty or not guilty remains to be settled
by the court; but at any rate the Sowers

have nothing to do with his caee.

mothers of the land, but, contrary to the
usual order of things, the niother-ic-law
who is a target for the stale jok.es of
every third-class minstrel show, and of
ten of the first-class addresses, received
her share of the praise which so rightly
