LIFE IN HOLLAND.
Special Correspondence to Banker],
When I last wrote we were in Brns-
els, or as the Belgians proudly call it,
Little Paris,” and it is really a city
be proud of. It is on several hills
and has many handsome 'buildings.
The Palais de J usticehere is the haud-
*?r‘? : e , st . b " ildinK I . have 8e « n in Europe.
While if. is not S’* large or expensiTo &b
many others, it is by far the most grace
ful and pleasing. It combines the Do-
0, Ionic aod Corinthian styles of ar
chitecture, with aliitle of the Esvd-
tian. * ^
From Brussels we went to Antwerp
and then to Holland
Holland is a quaint country with
large old-fashioned windmills every
where. indeed they are a characteris
tic feature of a Dutch landscape. The
country is perfccrlu flat and only a few
feet above the water. It is below some
of the canals. There are no f< nces, but
iust-ad, there are ditches full of water
The principal occupation ia dairying,
and there are cows everywhere, and you
get the most delicious cheese and but-
Rotterdam is a quaint old-time city,
with more canals than streets and more
children in wooden Sabots than either.
Tbe Hague is a pretty place aud very
pleasant. While at the Hague we went
by team down to Schivengen, the aris
tocratic seaside resort of Holland, much
frequented by the nobility. I fear tbe
bathing costumes would shoes Ameri-
an ideas The Dutch girls are very
pretty, and the women
are decidedly the handsomest
and best dressed we have seen. They
look very much like Americans in
deed, sometimes until they speak, it is
difficult to tell the higher class of
Dutch from Americsup. •
Amsterdam is the place of Holland
It is & curious city. No matter what
part of it yon wish to go, you must first
to the Dan and take a streetcar
from there. It is the cleanest city in
Europe and tbe people are always wash
’ )g the fronts of their houses, and even
dewalks and-streets as well as the in-
i()e of their homes. It is dangerous <o
alk on theirpaveinents,there is so much
touring you don’t know when a bucket
water may descend on your head.
While here he went to the diamond
works where they cut and polish dia
monds. The work is done almost en
tirely by Jews, and tbe cutting and
polishing is wonderful
We also viaiired tbe village of Brock
near Amsterdam. It is most marve
lously clear, and nothing I ever heard
f can compare to it. No bouses, cows,
etc. are allowed to come inside the
town, and you must change your shoes
•>eforeyou ent'-r. You can not find a
peck of dust with a microscope. The
i.rincipal business of the peoples’ lives
is to scour the streets and houses. I
ball always like the Dutch cheese af
From Amsterdam we went to
Berlin which is a very handsome qpod-
ern city. As we do not speak German
we thought we might fare something
like a man in Paris who did not speak
French, and went to a swell
hotel for dinner. He pointed
to tbe first thing on tbe me. u, and they
brought him soup which he liked very
well, so be pointed farther down, and
they brought him another kind of soup.
He did not want any more soup but he
bought he would eat it, then he
pointed half way down the card, and
they brought him fish soup, and tbe
peop.e began to laugh. He was getting
desperate now and pointed to the las'
thing on the card, and they brought
him some toothpicks Luckily for us
liowever we s'opped at a hotel where
they spoke English, The real swell
German hotels are queer, they have one
arge room where they sit and talk and
play cards, eat and drink, play billiards
and smoke all in this same room. I have
been trying to decide ever since I have
been here what they smoke, whether it
is willow bark, or cabbage leaves, it is
certainly guiltless of tobacco.
At Berlin we have seen some very
fine palaces, and magnificent galleries
of modern pictures, which aie superior
to the duals of “old master” which were
utterly deficient in drawing and per
spective, and to which in comparison of
colors a rainbow is nothing.
Germany is the land for soldiers, the
Emperor is now reviewing seventy-five
thousand men in Bavaria, and there is a
good deal of talk of war with Russia.
The Czar, too is now reviewing five
hundred thousand men at Moscow.
We were lucky in seeing the Empress
of Germany on her way to Join the Em
peror at the Bavarian review, she is
rather pretty and very popular.
From here we go to Dresden, and to
Prague and through' Saxon Switzer
land, and then to Bremen where I sail

Greatl Anxiety. la Said to Prevail
Calcutta, Sent, 28.—Dispatches from
Rangpun, the capital of British Bnr-
mah, announces that a feeling of great
anxiety prevails there.
The natives who have thrived there
report that a gathering of decoits is

garrison at Wuntho.
Several minor conflicts have already
occurred, and news of more serious
fighting is momentarily expected.

on the steamer Boreales ostensibly on a
cruise after black bass. It is said, how

A Man Dyinir of Favor Tells of Bis
Many Moody Murders.
Shamokix, Pa., Sept. 30.—John Gi-
rock was stricken with typhoi^ fever a
month ago and has just died, \jnst be
fore his death he made a confession that
seven years ago, while working at San-
bnry he and a man named Charles
Wurd murdered Oscar Olack, who
worked nt the railroad with them, and
robbed him of his savings. His body
was buried under an old tool house.
When asked the next day abont Oscar’s
absence, he said he had left for his
homo in Poland. Richard, a brother of
Oscar, susi>eeting foul play, instituted
such a searching investigation that,
rearful of being discovered, tne assas
sins lured him into the country and
killed him. The body was bnned in
the swamp, and the murderers reported
the neck day that Richard had gone to
join his brother-in-law in Poland. Soon
afterwards this pair came to Shamokin
and worked in tbe mines. A peddler
stopped at their home one night for
shelter, aud in an nnguarded moment
mentioned that $150. He was shot
dead and robbed and his body thrown
down an air-hole. ISM

from varions countries, and the city is
tilled with the devout, many of whom

Sixty thousand persons assembled at

the multitude and reverent bending of

of members of the papal guard, enters

throne at tlje poutifleial altar.

As the pope was born along above

he raised his hands and bestowed his
benedictions right and left until he
reached the altar. The progress of the
procession was attended with rapturous

••Whatever yon do. don’t take the

M*» Johnnie declared h«T intention o!
running up to town ’It’s slow and
awfully dusty aud there’s generally a
rowdy crowd aboard. Wait for the 2:05
But no sooner had Tom taken his de
parture than Mrs. Johnnie decided to do
nothiug of the sort She was a bustling
little body forever on the go. and when
once an idea crept into that clever little
head of hers, she was inclined to carry
it through to a finish in ber own particn
Conseqnently. Mrs. Johnnie did take
the 12:10 local, aud within five minntes
time she was wishing devoutly that she
had followed Tom's advice, for it was
hot and it was dnsty. and they were
crawling along at a snail’s pace, and
there were some rough looking custom
ers on board, and — well, oh dear
After all. Tom did know what he was
talking abont occasionally
At ti»e far end of the car a yonng
woman was sitting She looked so
yonng that one might almost have called
her a child, in spite ol tbe fact that her
pretty brown ban was twisted up on
the top of her head in a vaiu imitation
of the latest fashion And the (to Mrs
Johnnie) most atrocious fact that ber
cheeks were covered with rouge.
Mrs Johnnie gathered ber belongings
together and sot out to take possession
of the seat just in front of tbe yonng
girl, saying sotto voce to herself mean
’It’s really the most ridiculous sight I
ever saw The child mnst be crazy If
it were only an old woman of my age
(Mrs. Johnnie was rather fond of calling
herself an old woman, although she only
owned to being twenty-eight)—if it were
only an old woman of tqy age now, there
might be some excuse. But for a child
like that, with the complexion of a
peach, why—why—it’s perfectly prepos
Mrs. Johnnie'sett led herself comfort
ably in the seat, ami then, half turning
she scrutinized the young girl at ner
leisure She could do so without rude
ness, for the girl was gazing out of the
window, aud her thoughts seemed to be
far away *It’s a sweet little face,"
thought Mrs. Johnnie, 'and i don’t care
if it is painted; it’s innocent and trust
ful Her dress fits her abominably but
she has a glorious pair of eyes She’s a
positive anomaly I’m going to intro
The girl turned her head Just at that
moment, and as their eyes met both of
them smiled, and each perceived for the
first time that the other wore the little
silver Maltese cross of the King’s Daugh
ters. They needed no introduction after
that Mrs Johnnie moved into the seat
with her. and they were soon tbe best of
frienda It did not take Mrs. Johnnie
very long to gain the particulars ot her
story She had never tieen to the city
before, she said, indeed, except for some
little excursion now and then she bad
never left her homo, which wax in a lit
tie village on the coast ot Lx>ng Island
She was so glad to have some one to
talk to. for of course she was feeling a
bit lonely Then sbe told Mrs. Johnnie
that her name was Daisy—Daisy Hope—
and that she was an orphan with jnst
one sister. Her nnnie r wax Sophie, and
she was married now They bad always
been the very best of friends—she and
Sophie—until Dan Hackett came along.
Nowadays, she added with a sigh. Sophie
had eyes for no one bnt Dan.
“But 1 shan't mind it so mnch now,
■he added, suddenly brightening np
again, “now that I'm going to be mar
“ Married I" exclaimed Mrs. Johnnie
in astonishment. ’Yon don't mean to
tell me so! When is it coming off. and
what’s his name? 1
’Yes. we're going to be married right
away—Jack and tne. This isn’t very
much of a trousseau, is it?" she added,
with an expressive gesture toward her
old fashioned carpetbag and two papeT
parcels. “Bat Jack said that wouldn’t
matter. He coaid fix ms ap when I
came to town. He tohl me in his letter
not to bring auythiug along: my coun
try dresses would uever do for New
York, he said Bo I’ve left them all at
home there, hanging np in my closet-
all except my new .pink on* I got at
Easter. It’p so pretty I couldn't bear to
leave that behind. 1 guess it will do
for the mornings, now and then.
“Bat wasn’t it awfully good of Jack,
though? He sent me this dress to wear
on the way np, and this diamond,
pointing to a huge brooch that sparkled
at her throat, bat which Mm. Johnnie’s
eyes pronounced to be very bad paste.
“And there was a box of complexion
salve he sent me too. I’ve pat some of
it on jast to please him. bat I can’t say
that 1 like it very much. It itches so
and feels horrid. Do all ladies paint in
At another timi Mrs. Johnnie would
have band ont laughing, bnt jnst at
present matters were taking too serious a
tarn. Mrs. Johnnie was beginning to
wonder very much.
“But when are yon to be married, my
dear?" she asked hastily “Yon haven’t
answered my question yet And what
does Sophie say? For. of course, you’ve
told her all abont it"
The girl hnng her head, and Mrs.
Johnnie could see ber blushes even in
spite of the rogua -
“Yon see. it’s this way. Jack hates a
fuss and ail that He said for os to get
married first and then let Sophie kiio'w.
That was the hardest thing' 1 had to do
—leaving her withont a word of goodby.
Bnt Jack knows best. 1 suppose Only 1
“Excase me. Daisy, yon mnsn’t think
foe impertinent lor asking; all these
questions my dear. Is Jack going to
meet yon at the station!"
“Well, no— uot exactly He's so busy
at this time of day. you know. That’s
one reason why he sent the dress anil
things He said in his tetter that be had
shown them to a lady friend of hia
She’s to meet me at the ferry and take
charge of me till he cornea." '
“Obi And how long did yoa say yon
have known a—a—Jack?"
The girl bang her head again. “I saw
him first abont six weeks ago. He came
down on one of the yachts. He came
down twice on Sunday after that, and
he's written ever so often."
Mrs. Johnnie laid her hand tenderly
upon the yonng girl’s arm “And do
yon really think, my dear Daisy, that
yon know him well enough to marry
him? Wouldn't it be wiser to wait a bit
and take your sister into year confi
donee? Why not ask Jack to wait a
year for yon and then see how matters
stand? He'll wait for yon gladly enough
if he's really in earnest. ’’
“Why should 1 keep him waiting? -
she answered. ’He-loves ma Isn’t
that enough? 1 love him and trust him
entirely, and he does the same by me
isn’t that enough?"
Mrs Johnnie did not answer for a
moment Her lips were pressed tightly
together, for to tell' the truth, Mrs
Johnnie was making ap her mind tt
adopt a desperate measure. This car
half full of men. was certainly no place
for a scene. And Mrs Johnnie began tc
realize that if she proceeded to do hei
duty J>y this little girl a scene was bound
to come The train was jnst slowing up
for a moment at-a little wayside station
Well, my dear. I hope sincerely that
yon will find it is enough." she said
Then, springing np suddenly, she grasped
the carpetbag and her own belongings.
“Hnrry np, my child 1" she exclaimed,
giving the girl a little push. “ Here’s
where we change cars, you know. Come
“But I thought this train"
“Now, my dear, that’s jnst what yon
mnstu't do. Don’t think, bat follow my
Before the girl had realized what she
was doing Mrs Johnnie had bundled
her out on to the statiou platform. The
train moved slowly out Mrs. Johnnie
watched it disappear with a sigh of re
lief. and then she turned to the bewil
dered girl and spoke to her very gently
“Let ns walk over to the little hotel
Daisy We shall have to wait .there ball
an hour Perhaps we can secure a room
there, for 1 want to have a little talk
In speaking of it afterward Mrs. John
nie always declared that to her the walk
from the station to the hotel was by fai
the Baddest part of all that day’s ordeal.
It was then that the' magnitude of the
work she bad to do dawned upon her for
the first time. Before they two should
be standing on that platform again.
Jack, the yonng girl's idol, must be shat
tered and thrown from its pedestal. To
Mrs. Johnnie fell the task of displaying
him in his true colors, and thongh it was
a task which she shrank instinctively
from in perspective, when the time came
Mrs Johnnie was not fonnd wanting
She never told any oue—not even Tom-
the particulars of what occurred in that
little room, bnt when the train from
New York came rnxhing along half an
honr later the semaphore was hoisted as
a signal to stop, and the two women
stepped silently oh board.
Both ol them had tear stained faces
ont there was no rouge on the yonng
girl s face now her hair hnng simply
down her back, and she wore her pretty
pink dress. That night, when Mrs
Johnnie reached her own home, aftei
quite a long combat with sister Sophie
Tom wax told jnst ax many of the par
ticnlars as Mm Johnnie thonght fit.
When she had finished he was silent
Tor a moment or two. while he exhanst
ed his stock of anathemas upon Jack
Then, turning his attention to the wom
an in the case, he exclaimed. “Well, of
all the little fools”
Bnt Mrs. Johnnie interrupted him sud

James Stephens, the former leader of
the Fenians, has arrived in Dublin. It

A Jackson. Miss., special says that
the statne of Jefferson Davis, which was
to have been placed iu the base of the
Confederate monument unveiled here

Mr. Duvis, bnt agreed to appoint a
committee of twenty-five citizens to de

above life-size, and some think fairly
represents Mr. D.ivis as he appeared at

Why You Should Patronize the Banner Job Office.
When one has work of an artistic nature to be executed, he naturally car
ries it to the very best artist convenient. Of course, an expert workman and
skilled mechanic has the latest and best macliinci > enable liim to accomplish
the most satisfactory results. No one wishes to piti .1*0 a workman who does
not keep abreast with the improvements of tlio day, for II i an impossibility for
him to turn out a novel and artistic job. In printing, styles arc constantly chang
ing. Type faces that were popular last year, are now rarely used. Better effects
are seen by the most casual observer.
0US TYPE -FACES ASE ALL NEW
In The Bannkb Job Office there is to be found the largest selection of new
and artistic type in Northeast Georgia. If you have a Poster as large as a newspa
per to print, and want it executed in an attractive style—in a style that will “catch
the eye”—The Banner office is the place to have it printed. If you have an. in
vitation card that you wish to appear as if it were lithographed, send it to us. In
fact, we qave the best selection of type for any kind of work that is printed.
THE BANNER JOB TRINTEBS.
No matter how good material a shop may have, withont skilled mechanics
the best results cannot be obtained. It is even so in a printing office. We have
the most artistic and skillful printers to be obtained. We refer you to samples of
our work for proof of this assertion. After all, one’s work is the best way by
which to judge his ability. We have no “cubs” to “butcher” work.
■siOUR TRESSES Js*
Without good presses, it is impossible to turn out first-class work. Many
jobs, which are otherwise artistic, are spoiled by poor press work. In Thh
Banner Job room there are five of the finest presses made—Adam’s Patent Book
Press, The Cottrell <& Babcock Cylinder Press, two of the latest improved Gordon
Presses and Golden’s Pearl.
WE TRINT ANYTHING
That can be printed. Our Stationery is the very best, and our prices are surpris
ingly low. If you wish the very best results, don’t wait ’till your stationery
gives out, but send your work in^now, so that we may have time to make it a
truly artistic job.
These Messenger Boys were sent out to make special
delivery of Catalogues, and told to hurry. This idea so excited
them that they got all mixed up and don’t know which is
which. They want you to pick them out and put them in their
proper order, so as to show the name of a leading piano.
Here is a hint. The catalogues tell all about the famous
SOFT-STOP and other patented improvements. For further
