"Young Smidgely went out to Nebiaska
in 1877, about the time Bill Nye started
his Boomerang in Laramie, Wy., and
bought out the Lone Tree Courier, good
will, office fixtures, plant and everything,
for 20. He hold the same paper in two
years for $G.2oO."'
'Yes; a judicious combination of
finance and journalistic instinct. Smidge
ly arrived in Lone Tree with only 25,
and put up at a hotel where the two men
or rather boys wh owned tho paper
boarded. One of tlnrn was a printer
the 3ounger on?; the other wa& a stock
m,in up on the Loup river who didn't
know an em quad from a tripenny lath
nail. The pnee asked for The Courier
was $1,400. Smidgely looked the office
over, said he'd take it. paid tho boys $20
down, pulled off his coat and went to
work. There was of course a mortgage
on tho outfit. I never saw a country pa
per in that btato without one. One note
of 700 was duo tho next week. Smidge
ly got out a rattling good paper it was
a weekly. Tho first itsue showed nn
signs of improvement, and then he went
down and introduced himself to the
Beforo ho left ho got that official to
promise to use hi3 influence with tho
county commissioners ia getting tho tax
list to publish, and finally succeeded in
borrowing 800 on tho promise of a good
bonus on tho tax list fat. The list came
to 1,100, all clear money by the way,
and then Smidgely got the county com
missioners to publish the official proceed
ings of the board something that had
never been done before and this at 40
cents an inch, he fatted up to be worth
at least 50 a week all net gain. The
whole town fell dead in love with
Smidgely, advertising rolled in, they
elected him justice of the peace, sent
him to the legislature and boomed him
for all there was in sight. Well, when
the man came along, as I said, Smidgely
sold out for $6,2o0, went to Denver and
sunk the whole in some mining specula
tion. Every word of this story is true,
and it shows the possibilities which are
always looming up in young states for
young, enterprising men." St. Paul Pio

Hats are all quips and cranks again for
the winter season. 0:i3 of a. very whimsi
cal shape in black felt, jecn at a recent
opening, had a small and perfectly round
crown. One side was ornamented with a
wreath of rany black tips, and tho back
was fastened up with a cluster of the same.
The hut was enlivened by a largo bow of
bright blue velvet. Another hat more
outre, if anything, in shape had a portion
of the brim on the left side cut off. The
other side came out in a wide poke in
front. This hat was profusely tiimmed
with mauve feathers. On one hat were
counted no less than nine birds. Many of
the French hats are trimmed with flowers.
The hats that are large and fiat are known
as plate shapes.
Turquois blue plays an all important
part in millinery. One very small bonnet
seen was composed of turquois and steel.
Velvet will be a very popular material dur
ing the forthcoming winter. Tomato and
capsicum colors, also a deep yellow, prom
ise to be largely worn. A bonnet that
excelled all other queer shapes seen was
heart shaped. It was made of blue velvet,
and trimmed with black rosettes and birds.
In the accompanying cut are shown two
imported bonnets. The iirst figure illus
trates a bonnet of heliotrope velvet with a
brim of applique black lace. Around the
small and peculiar crown is a jet coronet,
and jet drops edge the brim. The strings
are of velvet. The remaining ficure shows
a bonnet in sapphire blue velvet, with
black lace strings; the garniture is com
posed of lace, jet ornaments, a feather
aigrette and twisted folds of velvet.

Tho late Hon. Dnvid Dudloy , of Presque
Isle, wus a great tobitcco hater. He
would not sell the weed in his store and
would not allow anyone to sinoko on his
premises. While Hon. Hannibal Ham
lin waa vice premdent ho visited Presque
Isle, and being well acquainted with Mr.
Dudley called on him. The honorable
vice president was smoking a cigar when
he entered tha shop. Air. Dudley, glad
to see him, shook him by tho hand and
then said, "Mr. Hamlin, the boys and
men all know that I don't allow smoking
In my store, and to be consistent I must
ask you to either throw away your cigar
or step out on the platform." All present,
Mr. Hamlin included, respected him the

All Holiday Goods at a
Mnrli VIrltie In Gulf Wator.
Probably you never heard of it before,
but the water of the Gulf stream is con
fidently believed by certain old people on
Staten Island to be a sovereign remedy
for disorders of the stomach. They drink
half a glassful after each meal, smack
their lips, and in about three days they
get well. So they say. So pilots and
other seafaring men who get out to the
Gulf stream are frequently importuned
to bring in jugs of tho gulf water for
the invalids. Thero is a saloon keeper
down thero whose faith in this sort of
thing is unlimited, and he has been be
sieging for about three years a certain
pilot of his acquaintance to bring him in
some of the water. But the pilot always
The other day, however, ho tickled the
old man almost to death by bringing
him three jugs of tho precious liquid.
The-Baioon keeper began to braco up at
once, and three days later ho chased the
pilot half way around the island to over
whelm him with gratitude.
"So it did you good, did it?" says the
"Good?"' says tho old man. "Why,
bless you, my boy, it has added ten years
to my life. I feel like a youngster again.
I'll bet I can beat you in a foot race
And the pilot did not smile nor jibo
nor jeer. But whnn the flood tide had
been running about nn hour that even
ing he went 'oftly down to the end of
Stapleton pier, drew out a tin bucket
and dipped up about a gallon of the
limpid stream. And the next morning
tho saloon keeper r: overjoyed to get
two more jugs of Gulf stream water
from his thoughtful friend.
"It's kind of a shabby trick," says tho
pilot apologetically, "but as long as
there are buckets handy around Staple
ton I guess Uncle Jo""i needn't go with
out Gulf stream water.' Kew York
Truth Is Stranccr Than 1'iction,
A well known nove ist of tliis city was
telling how he find his plots. "I have
found nearly all of them in real life by
intercourse with people in all sorts of
society. There are no plots to be drawn
from the imagination that are equal in
interest to those lhat can be learned bv
knowing the actual o -periences of many
of or.r men and won on. Here in New
York you can hoar cr plenty of lovelorn
damsels and bold s win"!: you can find
heroes and heroines a-plenry; yon can
hear of marvelous a lventnres; Vou can
find people whose career has been ro
mantic: you can hear of intrigues and
their denouement; yen can meet charac
ters who would shi le on the printed
nage: you can easily find in the actual
experience of your acquaintances all the
material needed for tragical tales or
humorous yarns. Why, the best plot I
ever wrote w was no of my invention,
but was in the story of her own life
given me by my cook.'" New York Sun.
New Woolon J'abrics.
The new patterns and new fabrics for the
coming season do not as j'et point to any
novel departure. Checks and stripes will
both be worn, the checks large and the
stripes irregular. One of the novelties is
the checks and stripes with an astrakhan
effect introduced, bluck and fleecy. A new
stuff called drap St. Petersburg has a
check formed with square, coarse stripes.
The horizontal and perpendicular stripes
are frequently of a totally different color,
and in contrast to the ground. One of the
most delightfully soft stuffs of the year is
a pure, self colored vicuna, made in over a
dozen shades, fcerge is always in fashion,
and nearly every one has one serge dress
at least in her wardrobe; the novelty is
the Sergino Haye, or striped serge, with
white and brown stripes on the blue
ground, the colorings varying according to
taste. A new fabric is "poile." It is
checked and striped, and the patterns dif
fer greatly. Some of the tailor tweeds are
close and line as delaine, only thicker, and
others as rough and coarse as Bath blank
eting. An Item for the Slaseulinc Sex.
It has been decided by the Association of
Master Tailors of Paris and Lyons that the
masculine sex is to lay aside its dark gar
ments, and to appear henceforth clothed in
lively colors. Coats are to be made in
bright shades, and there are to be gorgeous
waistcoats, lace jabots and knee breeches
and stockings to match. A ball will be
given in Parisand Lyons during the course
of the winter to inaugurate this revival of
elegant clothes for men. Paris decrees
the fashions for women, but from London
comes the word that decides thoe for men,
and London has not yet spoken in favor of
many colored coats and knee breeches.
