We felt sorry for the old man. When ho

a hard case. He had jcoino down ex lectlng

when ho got through the old man felt him

no legal HUthorlty to permit it, but wu
wanted to make old HI happy once more
and aro wllllnn'to take thu penalty.
Anotiiku Mistake. When a strntiKer
came to us its mayor the other day to Kct n
license for "a grand amm-Kittlou of Itvluu
curiosities," which he wanted to exhibit
undent tout, wu fell It our duly to warn
him that If thlnt were not up and up he
would hear something drop. Ho (rented
our kindly Intentions with lofty disdain,
nnd wo Issued the llceusu with n feeling
that he would hump up iwutust something
now before the week was out. Wedncsdny
evening ho opened Ills show to the public.
He had a big sign rending, "Glgnntlo Ag
gregutlou of Stupendous Curiosities" on tho
front of thu tent, nnd tho mlntito old
Doo Poolo got sight of it ho opened lire,
Justus wo had predicted. Ileforu thu city
marshal could get to hint ho had shot oil
all the sign except "Ulgan" , and had
likewise seared most of tho living curiosi
ties Into Ills.
Among the exhibits was n fat hoy from
Ohio, warranted to weigh 20 pounds. Five
or six of the boys hefted him and put his
weight down ut about 1(15 pounds. Ho was
carried across tho street and put on tho
scales, nnd when it was found that he
weighed only 1(13 pounds things begun to
break loose. Tlicra was a wild girl from
Borneo, who chewed gum so naturally that
old Jim I'uller recognized herns n girl from
Pike county, Mo. Tho living skeleton had
morofnt on his bones than the man who rau
tho show, nnd after considerable trouble It
was found that "the biggest gorilla ever
captured nlivo" was a boy fixed up for the
occasion, and a poor fix at that.
This Is n great locality for Inevitable re
sults. There was nn Inevitable result to
this deception of the confiding public.
There was n sudden yell from tho 75 men
tnsldo tho tent, and then tho herd stam
peded. Somebody abducted tho wild girl
ot Homeo, and within a week wu expect to
announce her mnrrhtgo. Tho fnt boy was
placed on a looso iniilo nnd sent off for a
ride, tho gorilla stripped of his skin nnd
soundly spanked, nnd tho last wo saw of
tbo proprietor of tho show ho was being
tossed In a blanket nnd yelling for mercy.
Wo understand that ho left town ou foot,
and that thu slier I IT has charge of his tout
and a box of snakes. As we have stated be
fore, this is a good town for snows, but it
must bo a good show. Wo aro an up and
up people. Wo pny for whnt we get, hut
wunt whut wo pay for. If a theatrical com
pany comes hero to play "Hamlet," there
must be no Uncle Tom nnd little ICva can
tering around on the stage, and if tlio play
is "Undo Tom's Cabin," then Humlet has
got to keep out of it, or some of the boys
will shoot his whiskers oil.

The Loss of a Life or Two Apparently Hot

Tho elections for tho council general
wero going on nil over the island of Cor
sica. Tho cuntoti of Soccia comprises
several villages, among others Qungno,
noted for its famous mineral springs
and also for tho tttrbulcncoof its pooplo.
Tho olections took place in each village,
and on tlio morrow tho presidents of tho
several bureuus wero to meot at Soccia
for tho formal declaration of tho poll.
In consequence of certain disorders thut
bad already occurred, the mayor of Soc
cia issued an edict to tho effect that none
of tlio inhabitants of Guagno was to en
ter the village that day.
The inhabitants of Guagno choso to
Ignoro this order, and CO of them, ull
armed, and all angry that their candi
date had been defeated, marched upon
Soccia, headod by thoir. mnyor. Two
gendarmes not nrmed had been placed
at the entranco of tho villago and warned
tho advancing troops thut thoy wero to .
como no fnrther. Tho mayor of Guagno
cried "Fire!" There was a generul vol-,
ley from his followers, and tho two gon
darines fell (load. "Thoy both boro ex
cellent characters. Ono of them had been j
24 yenrs in thoservico, had been proposed ,
for tho military meiiai auu leaves a wire
and threo children."
Such was tho first ucconnt in the daily
paper of Bnstin. It occupied about seven
inches of ono column. The next day tho
editor had had timo to reflect (or he, too,
mav no'sibly have had a significant
warning), for in un nrticlo throe inches
long tho account wii3 somowhat quali
fied, and there was this Important emen
dation, "It gpoms wo wero not correct in
stating thnt it was tho mayor of Guagno
who gavo tho order to fire upon the gen
darmes." Tho third day thero wero just two
lines. "In couseauenco of tho uufortu-
nato affair ut Soccia it is probable thut
the mayor of Guagno will send iu his
resignntlon." That was all. I tookT in
the rowspaper regularly for ii woek, for
I wus curions toHcohowtlio affair would
end. but there was nothing more up-
parently no Imiuiry, no prosecution of
the offemlcrs. -Coutouuwrary Review.
