If ho lives until February 0, General
Goff will bo 40 years of ago. Ten or twelve
years ago he was something of a spread
eagle orator, nnd used to 'get off soma ro
tnarkablo statements on tho stump. IIo
haB changed wonderfully lu tho last few
j cure, but those who know htm are con.
stautiy alluding to soma of his rabid
speeches when a much younger man. A
"west Vlrglulan, In speaking recoatly of
tho Senatorial contest at Charleston, said;
"Nate Goff, as we nil call him, used to bo
a rlp-ioarlng fellow on tho stump. He
would go nil over tho State making
speeches. At one of tho towns several
jears ago he cot dreadfully worked up In a
Joint discussion with ono of tho leading
Democrats, ami, pounding tlio tnblo In
flout of hlru, unmercifully declared: 'I
want cver body hi this vast nudleiico to
know that I am an Auicrlcan 30.) days lu
tho year. 1 wish there wore more than 303
da s lu tho year, so tli.it I could bo moru of

haw he stood on tlio tatlff. 'I am for pro
tection,' he roaicd out. 'I would protect
tlio worklngmcu of Ihls laud under tlio
hroiul shield of Amcrli.Mii law.'
"All throiuh Ids speech ho kept li trplng
about thu broad shield of American law.
He reemed to delight In nibbing hi this
I olnt. '1 lint night somo of tho boys got up
u little gamo of draw pokor, and In those
dojs Nnto'Goft was ipittn fond of that form
of uiiiutciiiiiit, Ho took a hand, and thu
limit being S- it -made lather a lively gumo
for a town crowd. Nnto had couslilcrahlo
luck at thu start, but idung about midnight
the boys began to wool him. There was a
big Jack pomp, nnd Nnto thought ho had
a hand strong enough to sknop It lu. When
thu hands weia laid down Nalu's opponent
rnked in Ihu pot.
"When I lie chips hnd been stacked up on
tbo opposite sldo of tho Uhlu Nutnsald:
'Look here, jou did not show down falrlv.
I demand to know how you raked In that
pot.' Tho lucky man smllod, and dryly re
marked: 'It wim done, Mr, Goff, under tho
broad shield of American law.' Nate had
a case of diy giins, and the game pro
ceeded." I.tn of Itniiest 3(011,
Aii ofllilal In ono of tho largest banks In

cashiers nnd thieving bank tollers:
"Tho only wonder Is that there are not
