The Weber Dramatic Co,
The Weber Drarnetic company's en
tertainments in this city, last Thurs
day and Friday nights, were well
attended. Considering the fact that
the plays presented were new ones, and
the troupe bad not had sufficient time
to rehearse enough to pet them abso
lutely perfect, tbey were acted very
well. Mr. Fred Moore's acting, es
pecially, was excellent, splendid,
superb in fact there is hardly a word
in the dictionary that would do Justice
to his ability as an actor. No matter
what character Mr, Moore Imperson
ates, bis acting is perfectly natural,
and is Just as the character Imperson
ated would act in real life and what
more could be asked?

At a meeting of the Tennessee Liter
ary society on laet Saturday evening,
the question, "Resolved that Man is
not the Author of his own Destiny"
was discussed, with James Blacklaw
as leader on the affirmative and Chas.
McKuight on the negative. The de
cision was in favor of the affirmative.
Now, Mr. Caesar, you should not re
resort to slang to make it lively for me
as you did last week. You say, "ah
there," a slang phrase which I thought
had become obsolete, and then you
proceed to give me a lecture on ill
breeding. Oh, consistency, thy name
is not Caesar. You say I claim per
fection. I do not, even in politics. I
did not think to bluff you out of your
correspondence as you say. I rather
like to read your light and airy style,
It reminds me so much of a turkey
buzzard I once saw try to soar with
one wing broken. Hope you will come
again, as it seems to amuse you and
don't hurt me. Your love of exagger-
tlon carries you entirely away In your
last communication. You even mis
quote the golden rule. I would advise
you to go study the same instead of
politics. As to the fact of your having
communicated the loss of Mrs. Far
rier's horse to the Express, I simply
mentioned that by way of corrobora
tion and hope you did not take serious
offense. You know that in matters of
history we cannot be too careful. As
to definition of recently which you
ask for, will say that Webster is con
considered good authority on such
matters and would respectfully refer
you to the same. You will find many
other useful things there for one of
literary tastes like yourself. I have
talked with some of the choir and
they say they are not insulted by the
word punk, as applied to them and the
song Sweet Oregon. So you see you
kick before you are spurred. And
further the principles of Bryan are uot
untarnished so long as you misrepre
seLt them as you do. Now you advise
me to buut in a thimble with X-Raya
for my brains. The idea! You make
me mad, Caeaar, and I, in return, ad
vise you to hunt for politics with
X-Legs and folded arms, and as to
your political standing, of course we all
know where you stand (or stood), for
an odor of feet pervades the atmos
phere for niauy rods around. We are
nut in the dark on that. I have, as
you advised, decomposed another
puem. Here it Is:
Tennessee had a little democrat
With whiskers anft and low,
Aud every where Will Blacklaw went
This democrat would go.
It followed him to school one day
Which was against the rule.
It made the woods boys laugh and
To see him kept in after sch ol.
You say if were a man I would come
to you privately and tear off the musk
that covers my beastly name, but you
have not given me your address. Jf
you will do so I may some time do as
a most distinguished republican (I
think it was Mahomet) once said: "If
the monkey will not come to me I
will arise and go to the monkey."
Aud now Caesar, if I have written of
you in a way no gentleman would do,
as you say, you have also treated me
lu a most uulady-like manner and I
don't think you have been reading the
Lebanau Truth or any other paper
under the name of truth, lately. Now
Cuesar.aslam very busy I will not
be able to correspond further with you.
You may send back all pictures and
letters which you may have of me.
Kequkt-eat (pole cat) iu peace. Scat!
(We think it best tor Caesar and
Stayer to cease their controversy, but
we will be glad to receive news from
either one of them. Editor.)
