Cast his lot with blacks.
A Whit Man Wlo Was Ttrongfct
Take the cose of Rev. W. J. White,
the editor of a Baptist weekly publitslu d
at Augusta, Ga. Whito is a man of in
telligence and integrity, end his ac
count of his early life has never been
Briefly this is tho story : A few years
before the war a dark faced boy maUo
his appearance on a large Georgia plan
tation, lie was supposed to be a mulat
to, and when the planter died the
youngster was sold with the estate.
After the war this alleged mulatto
picked np an education and investigated
his ancestry. He wns not mcch sur
prised to learn that ho did not have a
particle of negro blood in his veins: His
mother was an Indian and bis father
was a wbite man.
White was not long in deciding to
cast his lot with the blacks. lie had al
ways been classed with them. It seemed
to be the will cf the Almighty that ho
should share tho burdens .of tho negro
race, aud he made np his mind to stick
to his old companions.
He prospered and became a leader
among the people. He has the respect
and confidence of both races, but he bai
never attempted to rise above what he
believee to be bis divinely ordained
sphere. It is easy to see at a glance that
this man is not a mulatto or a quad
roon, for his mixed Indian and Cau
casian blood cannot be mistaken ; but he
has no desire to cnt loose from tho ex
slaves with whom he has spent tho
best years of his life.
Many of the white ministers of his
denomination know tho peculiar facts
of his case, and they treat him with
great consideration. Uncomplainingly
he lends his life of self sacrifice, and bis
only object sccnis to be the advancement
of his adopted race. Ho mairied a mu
latto and submits to all the laws and
social distinctions which separate the
two races in tho south.
Few men simihuly situated would
have followed White's example. As a
rule, peoplo of Indian and wbite parent
age claim to be tho social equals of the
whites, and if they have a Pocahontas
strain In their blood they are proud of

THEY ARE SLOW TOT ADOPT IMPROVE

America WiIiUm An Adopted la a Sort

Two factors in English holiday travel
are obvious from these great piles of
passengers' baggage. One is that there
is no check system on the railways, and
tbe other that if it cost as much to hire
a cab in Liverpool or Manchester as in
New York there would soon be a dimi
nution in the number of packages, if not
in the weight of the baggage, which
English families take with them on
their holiday travels. Few big Saratoga
trunks are to be seen on the platform at
Crewe Here and there may be seen a
trunk which it takes two men to lift.
l4mt the address on it will almost cer
tainly show it to belong to an American
visitor. English people will not tako
the trouble to pack all their belongings
into one or two largo sized trunks.
Neither is there any need why they
should so long as tbe railway companies
will accept without demur IS or 15
small trunks, hampers, bundles and
other mitoellaneons packages as the
raii-.. tickets, and an lone aa an Enp-
jisj, cab driver will pile all this stuff
on the top or box seat of bis cab and
carry it and tho family attached to it
i from their home to tbe railway statiou
ior nan a crown.
Every now and again an Englishman
who ha been in America writes to The
Times concerning the advantages of the
check system as it is worked on the
American railways, but all these letters
go unheeded. English railway managers
have a dread of iunovntionR, especially
If tho Innovation comes from America,
and the English people, who are accus
tomed to tho scramblo for baggage at
tho railway stations, are quite satisfied
with tho existing system, or rather kick
of system. On tho whole, they save a
little money by it. English railway
companies allow a third class passenger
50 pounds cf personal baggage, and a
first class passenger double that amount
Any excess is supposed to be paid for,
but a tip cf threepence to u porter will
usually see tho whole traveling impedi
menta cf u f.tmity carried straight front
the cab to tho train and insure that no
questions us to weight aro asked. It is
usually the luck of a tip or a botile

have shown, it is a system r.ndt-r which

name cf corridor train to tbe tram mado

On some of the trains all tho car
riages aro connected with vestibules
like "thcEO on American railways. On
other trains there uro two or threo cor
ridor cars, whilo the rest of tho carriegta
are cf tho old fashioned style. Jt 13
characteristic cf tho English peoplo thct
there is seldom any scrnmblo fcr places
in tho new cars. Peoplo seem to like
the old compartments better, a fact
upon which tbo railway companies do
not fail to lay stress when, after some
outrage in a train, the companies are
pressed by the board of trade to make
tho use of corridor cara more general.
I Tbo corridor trains are principally in
nse between London and Scotland. On
scores of tbo loug distance runs in Eng
land all the carriages ore 3till of tbe
old fashioned kind.
Another fact conoerniny the corridor
trains is typical of tho English char
acter. New3boys aro not ciaried on
them. The English railway newsboy is
still kept sciuly to tho platforms at the
railway stations. And he is likely to be
kept there, for English people would
vote it a nuisance- too great to be Imnio
to be postered to buy books and confec
tionery they do not want. Tho newsboy
who travels with the train has few
friends among Englishmen who bavo
been in America. People grumble at
tho prices charged by. tho monopolists
Who control nil tho railway news and
bookstalls in this country. But it is
of ten put to tho credit cf tho monopo
lists that their newsboys aro always at
hand, bnt never muke themselves a
nuisance, nor worry passengers who do
not want tho bocks tbey are vending.
One of the newest innovations from
America in the English railway service
concerns mileage books. These aro now
in use on the Northeastern railway.
They are being tried in a tentative
fashion, and so far are issued only to
first class travelers. The reductions in
fare are quite considerable, and the con
ditions prescribed by the company are
easy. li the experiment works satisfac
torily, it will soon be extended to third
class passengers on tho Northeastern,
and, once well established on one large
trunk line, the system will soon become
general. London Letter.
HORSE MEAT DEFENDED.
Aa Authority Claim Prejodtea
IU General Lae.
Everybody is aware that the borse is
the cleanest of all domestic animals. It
will not eat anything but good, healthy
food, nor drink any but pure water. A
horse would rather starve than swill
the rotten stuff often given to pigs and
cattle. It is nothing but prejudice that
prevents us from eating horseflesh.
A similar prejudice retarded the in
troduction of the potato 100 years ago.
Today we could not get along without
it Yet the prejudice against potatoes
can be explained. The people bad been
told that this American root caused
fever and rendered the ground unfit for
all other crops. The exception against
horseflesh is not even founded upon any
objection to its properties. It is solely
due to the influence of the church. Tha
clergy did everything possible to pre
vent the newly converted Saxons from
returning to their heathenish practices
and prohibited the nse of horseflesh to
stop the sacrifices to Odin and Thor. A
long time passed before these sacrifices
were altogether discontinued.
The nations of Europe have suffered
enormous loss by this prohibition of
horseflesh. Especially from the humani

deplorable. JSiUions cf people are forced
to live on potatoes and similar food
wanting in nutritive qualities, while
millions of pounds of the very best meat
are washed. Horseflesh is the most
nourishing of all meats, and its taste ia
hardly to be distinguished from that of
beef. Tho flesh of a horse fed on oats
has a smell similar to gooeeflesh. The
fat is preferable to lard. Above all, it
should be remembered that no flesh is
so healthy as that of the horse. Trichi

We are willing to admit that the

dressings aro among the absolutely nee-!

more or leas uifhculiy in preparing
them, and they are for tho most port
expensive, and many of them are not at
all satisfactory. During tho war Jap
anese surgeons used tho ashes of rice
straw as a dressing for wounds, and
met with most remarkable success. The
wound was cleaned, the ashes applied
freely, then sublimate gauzo or linen
was used as a wrapping. These ashes
are said to bo a perfect luitiseptic, and
owe these qualities to the presence of
potassium carbonate. English and Amer

SPIDERS IN BATTLE.
THEY CONDUCT THEMSELVES WITH
ALMOST HUMAN INTELLIGENCE.
A Fight to tbe Flaiah Brtween a Black
Tiger Spider and a Pair I'rom tho Gra)
II ill Tribe The Hoot by Bound All
"Pat to Sleep," Though the Black Worn
In tbe qniet laboratory of a Ninth
street chemist tbe other day there was
enacted a little tragedy which afforded a
demonstrated lesson in the etiquette of
duelism as it is conducted among the
spiders. ' Few realize the intelligence
these inconspicuous little creatures often
display, and in fact few people besides
scientists go to the trouble of spending
an hour or so watching them.
The doctor espied a spider in the cor
ner of the laboratory window silL Ho
procured a wide mouthed jar, and with
a stick endeavored to push the spider
into it The insect turned savagely on
it and darted quickly np the stick to
ward his hand. Stick and spider were
dropped immediately on to the sill,
from which in another instant the crea
ture was scooped into the jar.
He lay sullen and bunched np at the
bottom. His body was fully three-quarters
of an inch long, tho thorax mottled
black and green, tho abdomen pursy,
round and marked with well defined
stripes of block and yellow ; the legs not
very long, bnt stout, hairy and ending
in unusually strong, double claws, while
the head was armed with a pair of
shining black mandibles that looked
like small steel pinchers. One of the
neighbors said afterward that it wns a
"tiger spider," aud there was no ques
tion as to the aptness of the name. His
behavior was so ngly and fierce that Le
mado a good subject for testing tho
pugnacity of spiders with their kind.
The doctor was familiar with his owu
borne, and having mado the capture ho
went up Into his own garret, where the
walls and corners were profusely deco
rated with "will you walk into my par
lor" contrivances. He singled out a
typical web and proceedod. The mouth
of the web was opened out over quite a
considerable area aud ran back as a
narrow tube, the wholo being like tho
most delicately woven gray white silk.
Throwing a tempting bait into the web
in the shape of a fly, the doctor had no
difficulty in sweeping two gray spiders
into another jar.
He got a deep sided salad bowl and
dumped the gray spiders in. They at
once began running around the flat bot
tom, making wild dashes np the sides
and tumbling over each other in their
excited efforts to escape.
As soon as the tiger spider was shaken
out of his pickle jar into the bowl the
gray spiders ceased their wild actions
and took up a crouching position at one
side of the bowl bottom. The tiger spi
der made no effort to escape, but after
one or two rapid reconnoiters of his sur
roundings squatted just across from
and faoing tho hill tribcrs.
Tho first offensive movements came
from the gray spiders. These were in
the nature of slow advances and retreats
along the circumference line of tbe bowl
bottom, with the evident intention of
taking the tiger spider on the flank. At
each advance, however, the tiger spider
sat up, resting on his four posterior and
middle feet, while the two anterior legs
were stretched ont like the arms of a
wrestler, and tbo strong caliper shaped
jaws were opened to their fullest extent
Suddenly one of the spiders made a
characteristic bnt fatal duah. He seemed
actually to leap at the big spider. But
quick as the hill spider was, the tiger
spider was equally so. As the long drab
spider darted in, the big black and yel
low fellow sprung np and faced him.
The next instant they closed, and in a
moment three of the hill spider's legs
lay on the glass, and the tiger spider,
holding his enemy in a be?rlika bus.
waa'baryisg bis manfiibles iii the eth
The killing had not been done, how
ever, without receipt of injury on both
idea. One yellow and black leg lay
with the three drab ones, and there
were two drops of blaok juice on the
pursy abdomen of the tiger spider,
which showed where the gray spider
bad punted bis jaws in tbe rush.
Ueanwhile, too, the second gray spi
der bad not been idle, bat was circling
round and about the struggling pair.
Then, seeing his opportunity, he dashed
in, only to be faced by the burly fight
er, who, to meet the new attack unen
cumbered, threw the body of the dead
com bo taut from him with a gesture that
was almost human.
The clinch did not follow so quickly
this time. The gray spider succeeded in
getting in and away, clipping off an
other yellow and black leg as he did so,
but in the second rush he was caught,
and the tiger spider's Jaws were locked
in his throat
So ended the fight
The tiger spider held on to bis second
corpse so long and quietly that I thought
him dead also, until I stirred him with
my pen, when he staggered furiously
against it, opened his jaws and rolled
over, a corpse. Cincinnati Commercial
