Announcement of tho HulIoM In tho
ciiro Convention of 1800.
Though it was not oxpeeted to bo
decisive, tho very first ballot foreshad
owed accurately the final result. Tho
"complimentary" candidates received
tlio tribute of admiration from their
respective State. Vermont votod for
Collanicr, and Now Jersey for Dayton,
each solid. Pennsylvania's compli
ment to Cameron was sliorn or six
votes, four of which wont at onco for
Lincoln. Ohio divided her compli
mont, 31 for Chase, 1 for MeLoan, and
at onco gavo Lincoln her 8 rotnaining
votes. Missouri voted solid for her
candidate, Bates, who also received a
scattering tribute from other dolega
tious. But all theso compliments were
of littlo avail to thoir recipients, for
far abovo each towered tho aggrogatos
of tho leading candidates: Soward,
173J; Lincoln, 102.
In tho ground-swell of suppressed
oxoitement which porvaded tho con
vention tliero was no time to analyze
this vote; nevertheless, delegates and
spectators folt tho full forco of its
premonition; to all who desired
tho defeat of Soward it pointed out
tlio winning man with unerring cer
tainty. Another littlo wrangle ovor
sumo dispulo'd and protesting delegate
made the audience almost furious at
tho delay, and "Call tho roll!" sounded
from a thousand throats.
A second ballot was begun at last,
and, obeying a force as suro as tlio
law of gravitation, tho forinor compli
mentary votes canio rushing to Lin
coln. Tho wliolo 10 votes of Col
lainer, 41 from Cameron, G from Chase
anil McLean, wore now cast for him,
followed by a scatter of additions
along the whole roll-call. In this bal
lot Lincoln gained 79 votes. S tward
only 11. Tho faces of tlio Now York
delegation whitened as tlio balloting
progressed and as the torrent of Lin
coln's popularity beeaino a river. Tho
result of tlio second ballot was: Sew
ard, 181; Lincoln, 181; scattering, 99.
When the vote of Lincoln was an
nounced tliero was a tremendous burst
of applause, which tho chairman pru
dently, but with difficulty, controled
and silenced.
The third bnllot was begun amid a
breathless suspense; hundreds of pen
cils kept paco with ftlio roll-call, and
nervously marked tlio changes on thoir
tally-sheet Tho Lincoln figures
steadily 'swelled and grow. "Votes
came to him from all the othor can
didates 1 from Soward, 2 from Cam
eron, 13 from Bate-), 18 from Chase, 9
from Dayton, 8 from MoLaan, 1 from
Clay. Lincoln had gained 50; Sow
ard had lost !. Long beforo the
official tellers footed up their columns,
spectators and delegates mado tho
reckoning and know the result: Lin
coln, 231; Soward. 180. Counting
tho scattering votes, -1G5 ballots had
boon cast, and 233 wore necessary to a
choice; only 1 votes moro wore needed
to make a nomination.

As much candy of tlio best grades is

is oft at some summer resort In the

A woman's candy storo can always

A citizen of Cincinnati thought
that he had a sure fortune in a kitton
which had firo heads, live tails, ton
fore legs, and firo hind legs. He also
thought that it ought to havo about
forty-five lives and was good for many
years, but after a brief career of fifteen
days the little monstrosity died, tho re
sult of too much handling by tho cu
rious. One of tho queerest facts in nat
ural history has been discovered by
Itov. J. J. Lall'erty, of Richmond, who
gives it to tlio world in his religious
journal as follows: "When a sparrow
hawk pounces on a guinea, lie lets the
guinea flv, but the hawk, sitting on tho
back of the fowl, uses his own tail to
guide tho guinea. He always steers
his victim to his nest in the forest."

threo of tho big prizos wero captured
by Boston mon. Mr. Israel Ginsburg,
who held one-tenth of tickot numbered
13,6-16, drew ono-tenth of tho capital
prize of $150,000. Mr. Ginsburg is a
young man, nineteen years ol ago, and
lives with Ins fathoi at 57 Salom street,
in quarters that betray a lifo of hard
ship and moderate if not extromo pov
erty. He is a Russian Jew, a peddler
by trade, and has only been in this
country a few years. To few men,
therefore, could tho smile of fortune
havo bcon moro welcome. Tho morn

Mr. Ginsburg looked them, as he
thought, carefully over, but failed to
discover that his ticket bore tho luok
iest number of all. When his friend
Mr. Fmberg congratulated him lator

Tho remaining $2,000 the grateful son
presented his father. Little olse than
Mr. Ginshurg's good fortuno has been
talked of in tho neighborhood of Salem
street since tho drawing. Mr. John
F. Sullivan and anothor Bostonian
each hold a tenth of ticket 58,180 which
also drew a capital prize, the amount
in cold cash receivod by each being

as tho last. Ho expressed himself a
perfectly satisfied with his experionci
and considered the Louisiana State Lot
tory Company as ono uf tho fairest and
most honest financial organizations in
the country. Boston (Muss.) Courier,
Oct. 30th.
Tommy Cute AVrlten a ltrnl Sensible tot
ler to un I-Mltor.
Tommy Cute, aged one, haying suf
fered as long as ho can stand it, writes
to us, in order that his grievances, be
ing known to tho public, they may im
mediately bo cured.
I object, ho says, in tho first place,
to being forced to adopt Farmer Jones'
brindlo cow for a foster mother.
I object also to tho existenco of rv
liko relationship between myself and'
tho condensed milk-factory or the corn
starch mill.
I object to having my stomach stuffed
a a remedy for a mosquito bite on mjr
littlo loo or a nasty pin in ny nock.
I object to personating a churn. T
prefer to tako my butter after tho
churning process is completed.
I object to being kissed by all tho
woinon, old and young, who como
noar me. 1 prefer to wait a few years,
or at least until I shall be old enough
to make my own selections.
I object to having peoplo ask mo
abotit 1113 ago. It is an impertinence.
Besides, grown peoplo sometimes re
member, and of ages they are especial
ly apt in keeping a record.
I ohject to having to go hungry until
company is served. For 1113 part, I
don't see what' peoplo want company
for. Company is a nuisance. Mam
ma and papa have said so hundreds of
times in my hearing.
I object to being obliged to go
about with my neck and arms bare.
When it is hot, tho ilies and mosquitoes
bother mo awfully, and whon tho air is
chilly, I feel as though I wero freezing;
to death. 3
I object, when I go out to rido in my
perambulator, to having myself loft
alono in the sun whilo my maid sports
with that long-logged chnp with tho
yellow moustacho and rcady-mado
I object to being sent to bed whon I
am not sleopy, and to having a nasty
rubbor tube stuck into my mouth every
timo I turn over in tlio night.
I object to having strangers mako
faces at me. They givo 1110 an awful
start sometimes when thoy think they
aro n musing mo.
I object to being spoken to by peo
plo with whom I am unacquainted.
Why don't thoy wait for an introduc
tion? I object to being tho only child in tho
family. It's awfully lonesomo not to
have any brothers or sistors. I wish I
had been born when it wnsfashionablo
to havo largo families.
I object to boing called Tom, just be
eauso my papa was called Tom whon
ho was a boy. Beeauso his papa gavo
him a name ho didn't liko was no rea
son for giving mo a namo I detest. I
should think a boy ought to bo al
lowed to chooso his own name.
I object to woaring dresses and hav
ing my hair curled. Half tho folks
think I'm a gal.
I object to boing bossed by women.
A man ought to bo his own master.
I'm just sick df petticoat government.
I object to being taught baby talk.
What good does it do mo? After Iliavo
boconio proficient in it I havo to go to
work and unlearn it and learn grown
folks' language. Why don't thoy teach
me that in tho first place?
I object to having folks boro mo with,
thoir silly stories which I havo hoard;
so many timos that thoy aro vcritablo
chestnu's. I object to having peoplo try to hum
bug 1110 all tho time. Thoy toll 1110
what I should do and what I should
not do. I notico they aro not given to
taking thoir own niedicihe. What
dunces thoy aro not to know that I
learn more from what I see than from
what thoy toll me!
There's lots of other thing to which
I object, but this will do for a starter-
Boston Transcript.
Tho volcanoes Popooatopetl and.
Ixtaceihutl, says a Moxioan exchange,
present a grand spectaelo on clear
mornings. Thoy aro covered with ico
and snow from-thoir tops to within a
fow hundred feot of thoir bases. This
is a regular phenomenon of tho sum
mer months.
Up to a few works apro I considered
myself the ohamplon Dyspeptlo of
America. During the years that 1
have bean a nil 0 ted I have trtou
almost ovorythln-r olalmtnl to bo a.
Hpooitls for Dyipepala In the hopo o
flnillntr somethln-r that would attbi-d
pormaneut reMof. I had about muU
up my mind to abandon all medl
olnos when I noticed un endorsement
of Simmons 1.1 Tor Regulator by a
prominent Oeortrlan, a Jurist whom
I knew, and oouoludod to try Its
otl'iiot.s lu my cas. I have used bur
two bottles, and am satLsflod that 1
havo struck tho r!ht thing at liwt.
I folt its beneficial effects almost im
mediately. Vullko all othar prepara
tions of a similar kind, no 6ieeial
Instructions aro required as to what
ono shall or shall not eat. This fact
alono ought to commend it to all
troubled with Dyspepsia.
