“There’s no fear of a watermelon
1 famine this season,” said a dealer
1 at Arch street wharf, yesterday, as
he gazed upon a pile of tbo luscious,
I green coated fruit. “They are
coming in by the boat load. They
come mostly irom Jersey and
Maryland just now. Early in the
; season they come Irom as far south
!as Georgia and Florida. They
range in price from $2 to $15 a
I “Any new varieties this year?”
i “Well, we have the vanilla and
i the lemon-flavored watermelon.
| They are got by injecting tho va
nilla flavor or inserting a bit of
' lemon into tho stem while the
! melon is growing. The flavor is
I taken np by the pulp, and makes a
delicious combination. Ouly epi
cures know of this wrinkle, and we
therefore have few of the doctored
species on sale. You can get a
toothsome dish by plugging a
melon, injecting a little tine claret,
restoring the plug and allowing
the wine to be taken up by the
! fruit. But beware; the combina
tion is as seductive ns ltoman
“Any new way of preparing the
melon lor table?”
“Well, I’ve been eating melons
for forty years and I still prefer
’em plain. Some of my customers,
however, like ’em mixed. Ono of
my best boarding bouse customers
bas watermelon salad every Sunday
in tho season. She prepares it,
she says, just as she docs lettuce-
cuts the red part of the melon up
into hits anil adds pepper, salt,
vinegar and oil. It ought to make
’em sick, but she docs say her
boarders just light for it. An
other family that I know of
ponr molasses on tbeir melons. A
good many people, I believe, always
add a squeeze of lemon to the fruit.
A Boston family that deal with me
nre always particular to have their
mulons firm and just ripe and
don’t baggie about the price wlion
tliev get them to suit. They havo
the"melons cut into little strips and
cat ’em with cold baked beans.
But, as I said boforo, for my parti
like ’em plain.”
The World’s queerest Ballroad.
Nobody has over yet doseribed
tlie wonderful littlo feeder of the
Leadville division, which modestly
leaves the main line of the Denver
and Rio Grande in Brown’s canyon
and ascends the mountain gnlehcs
to tho cast with the steepest grades
and heaviest ourves in the world
that are overcome with the ordin
ary urivc-wheel locomotive. Afar
up in tho range of mountains, sev
en miles away and nearly three
thousand icct higher than tho bed
of the canyon, is tho famoua Cain-
met mine, from which is extracted
the hematite iron ore that keeps in
blast the furnnceB of the Bessemer
works at Pueblo. Every morning
of the year a ponderous locomotive
and a small train of oars toil up
this steep, and evory afternoon
they make the perilous descent to
the valley loaded with iron, with
the steam brakes on the cars, tho
water pressure on the locomotive
drivers, and n man standing at the
brake wheel of each car.
Tills is the most wonderful picco
of railroading in the univorse. Tho
MIRKS. m|z | mom grade is 406 feet to tho
mile, or nearly 5 per cent., and the
maximum curvature 25 degrcca.
The terminal of the branch is half
a mile higher than the commct cc.
ment. Imagine, then, the difllcul-
ty in ascending’ with empty cars
and the danger or descending with
loaded ones. Still, strango as it
may seem, a locomotive can not
make the descent unless at least
five cars are attached. The latter
are essential to provide the restat
ing power for the steam brakes.
Tbet-ip up issnailisb; the return
is rapid, in spite of the steam pres
sure, which cuts the car wheels
into sparks, that fly out into aeon-
slant stream from the brakes, in
'spite of the roverso action, in spite

I The Magnetic Hlrl Returns' lo «eor-
Miss Luts Hurst, better known
! as the “Georgia wonder,” passed
through Chattanooga Monday
i night en route to her home in
1 Cedartown. Georgia, from a six
I months’ tour through tho north and
' east, where she has exhibited her
pceuliar mysterious strength, which
is too well known to need further
explanation. She was accompa
nied by her father, mother, and Mr.
P. M. Atkinson, her manager.
A reporter of the Chattanooga
Times ventured within speaking
distance of her and hud a short in-
terview. He learned that she had
been having a delightful tirno on
her trip, and that she was received
favorably everywhere. She says!
‘•Concerning this singular power
I possess, I can not give you a
more definite solution than when in
Chattanooga last winter. I have
studied hard to discover what it
was, but am in completo ignorance
of its origin. A great many emi
nent physicianx in New York and
Washington attempted to explain
it, but none did so to my satisfac
tion, and not oven to tbeir own. A
few of them told me it was strength,
but it is not tbe case. My audi
ences in every city seemed per
fectly satisfied with my exhibitions,
but, like myself, were puzzled and
mystified. 1 have named it‘myste
rious magnetism.’ ”
“Miss Lula says that there is no
grounds for the statement that sho
has married Mr. Atkinson und that
she doesn’t oven love him. In
speaking of money matters she
says she made about $40,000 in
cluding expenses, and adds:
I expect a more profitable tour
tide winter. I shall travel under
tbe management of Mr. Charles
Frohman, owner of tho Madison
Square Theater in Now York. My
next engagement is in San Fran
cisco, where I appear on Septem
ber 8th, and will remain there four
weeks. I shall then make a tour of
tho entire west. I shall come to
Chattanooga, if possible, but that
rests solely with Mr. Frohman.”
Tlie Rate tVnr from Albany's Stand
Ncvra and Advcrllacr.
It is generally understood that
tho East Tennessee, Virginia and
Georgia is making preparations lor
a vigorous light with the Central,
and a livoly war of rates is ex
pected. It is not at all probable,
howevor that Albany will reap any
of tho benefits of this fight. Upon
the contrary, it may be a miHorer.
It will certainly be placed more at
n disadvantage with Americus and
other competitive ootton markets
on tho line of tho Southwestern
railroad if the pool at Albany re
mains in force and a war of rates is
declared between the Central and
tho East Tennessee, Virginia and
Georgia; for if the rate is put down
from Americus, cotton can bo ship
ped from that point to Macon and
thence over tbe East Tennessee,
Virginia and Georgia at a mueb
lower rate than we havo at Albany
or ean ever hope to obtain so long
as tbo threo roads terminating here
remain in tbe pool.
Mr. Blaine’s great strength in
tbo west seems to consist princi
pally in delegates to Republican
national convention*. There ie no
popular upheaval there ur else
where in Ids behalf. Even in Iowa,
where Garfield bad 78,000 plurality,
the Republicans are becoming
alarmed at tbe outlook. This is
largely due to tbe defection of tho
German vote, which is said to be
■olid for Cleveland. Tbe fusion
of tlie Demooratsand Green backers,
and tho strength displayed by tbe
Prohibitionists, together with the
loss of the large German clement,
combine to make the situation very
interesting. Under the elronm
stances, tbe growing alarm of the
Republicans is not surprising. Tbe
Fusionipta may not win, but they
will keep tbe Iowa Republicans at
home and give them little time to
watch or assist in tbo general can
vass outside of the slate.

FARMER CLARK’S AUCTION.
HOLDINU A UATTLESNAKE UY TIIK
TAII. AND INVITINU BIDS FROM
. IH8 NEMIIBORX.
i Farmer Clark,of Vernon,N. J.,
near Warwick, says a special, stood
tbe other afternoon in the middle
of tbe roadway, near bis pretty
mountain home. His right arm
was stretched out to its fullest ex
tent and from between bit thumb
and finger dangled a Immense rat
tlesnake. A erowd ol villagers
Btooil at a respectable distance and
watobed the writhing inaka awing
backward and forward tike the
pendulum of an old-fashioned oioek.
Farmer Clark held the snake just
below its fourteen rattles. The
snake measured four and a half
feet in length and was thirteen
inches in cironmference in Its thick
est part, and the farmer’s uncere
monious treatment of it had made
his snakeship terribly mad.
“He’s all alive, oh,” said tbe
reckless Farmer Clark, grinning at
tbe orowd, “and he’s coin' as he
stands fur a dollar and a quarter.
I want the quarter fur my little
boy, who spied the critter fast, la
tho old stun wall. I wasa-workin’
in the fields, and my little boy
hollered out; 'Come here, p*p;
thore bees a big snake list crawled
Into the wall here.’ I went o’
course, an, suie enuf, I seed his
rattles stlkin’ out. He near ketoh-
ed me wen’ I yanked bln oaten
bis hole aud went over one post
and rail fence.”
Farmer Clark was oontihning to
expatiate on the beauty of tbe
snako when with tbe rapidity of
lightning the snake doubled np like
the lash of a whip und struck, just
missing its captor’s band by two
inobes. This caused the instanta
neous release of tbe snako and it
fell in a mass of the mnddy road.
Tbo orowd instantly scattered and
two small boys climbed a tree.
The snake was soon captured, how
evor, by Farmer Clark, who af
terwards disposed of it for a dol
lar and a quarter to Theodore Fre-
linghuysen Wood, a collector of
snakes and animal curiosities, Hy
ing near Vernon.
A Drunken Celestial.
The other day a baokmau, who
bat lioked everybody In Blooming
ton who nns bad the lomerity to
fight him, met a Chinaman on the
streot and said to him: “Git out
’o my way, yo nasty yaUsr brute,
or I’ll mop the ground with yer.”
“Me no blate, me Chinee man. heap

man began striking ont wildly,
while tho Chinaman kicked him in
tbe stomach and then, when be
went down, bit him in the eye and
bit hie ear, and then kicked him on
tbo chin and made him bite hi*
tongue as he tried to get up, and
twisted his nose and spat in bis
lace and walked on him and danced
on bis body. When a policeman
pulled him oil be cried, waving his
pigtail about bit ean: “Me get-
tee dlunkee. Me dlamme. Me figb-
tec. Megettee in jail. Me go
bcllee allee same Meiican man."
We think it was a small thing on
the part of somo of the Amerious
people to have opposed the claims
of Mr. Murray, of Schley, for state
senator from this district, because
that county opposed Amerious in
tbe Buena Vistarailroad. Accord
ing to the rotation system, which
has been the custom in this dis
trict, it was Schley county’s turn
this time, and tbe rights of her cit
izens should have been respected —
