k Matter of Clothes
Colonel Drowning of tho tho United
Btntes Infantry never woro a uniform
when off duty, always wearing tho
plainest clothes. When ho was n young
lieutenant ho bad been noticeable for
always dressing when in mufti lu tho
most fashionable attire. Hut suddenly
there )iad conio a change. Ills flno
clothes were replaced by those of the
most ordinary type, and from that time
forward ho novcr again dressed ns a
One evening when a number of re
tired otUcers nt the Army and Nnvy
club wore sitting together one of them
who had known htm all his life rc
marked on the splendor, of his former
npparel and tho sudden change-, where
upon Browning told the' following
Some forty years ago a gentleman
stepped Into a dance houso nt a point
Sou the upper Missouri river whero wag
ons started for the Interior. The gen
tleman could not have been more Inap
propriately dressed It be had attended
an inauguration ball in a woolen shirt,
with bis trousors tucked Into bis boots.
It was a case of vlco versa. The peo
ple In the danco houso were team
sters, gamblers, thloves, cutthroats; tho
women, the lowest of tho lowest class.
Tho gentleman went among them dress
ed In tho height of fashion. True, ho
woro what aro colled business clothes,
but from their cut and texture among
the costumes in the danco bouse they
were ns noticeable as If hb bad been
got up to represent n rajah of India.
The gentleman stood looking on at
tho motley crowd dancing about to tho
music of a scraped ilddle, and, being
nearsighted, slipped a pair of plncc ncz
glasses before his eyes In order the
better to take in tho novel sight Ite
bad nover before secL men dancing
with their hats on nor men and wom n
pausing to walk up to tho bar Jo have
a drink together. And it is question
able if the dancers ever saw such n
"swell" looking young fellow In a iky
blue cravat spangled with white dots
looking at tbcm through a pair of
eyeglasses without the slightest at
tempt to conceal bis interest in their
dress, manners and customs,
Very soon he was made aware 01 too
fact that tho people ho considered so
curious bad feelings as well as him
self, though not as delicate methods of
showing them. There were cries of
"Bloke!" "Tenderfoot!" "Dude!" ana
such like appellations, and presently tho
gentleman became nware that they
were applied to him. Ho was about to
turn and leave when a man stepped
up to him and, shoving a revolver under
his nose, said:
"Stranger, wo consider ourselves wo'th
a drink all. round."
By this tlmo the gentlcmap remem
bered thatyhe had heard of such people
as theso and when they made a request
of n man in their power it must be
"All right," be said. "Step upl".
Tho man who had made tho request
shouted that the stranger would set up
the dtlnks, and every one present drank.
The stranger Joined, realizing tbut If
he did not ho would very likely never
drink again. Then he paid the price,
which used up a twenty dollar bill, and
was about to depart when the man who
bad forced the invitation enld to him:
"Now you" here followed language
not to be repeated "git!"
The gentleman had not been unwill
ing to pay for the show ho had enjoyed,
though under compulsion, but at this
point he demurred. Nevertheless he
bowed politely to tho man and remark
ed that he wus sorry to have intruded.
Then bo departed, walking briskly
down to the river bank, where ho found
a boat tied up, on which were some
twenty recruits for tho th United
States Infantry stationed at Port .
They and the gentleman had arrived
only a couplo of hours before und were
to proceed In the morning to the fort.
"Sergeant," said the gentleman, "get
your men ashore and fo!l6w me."
Tho order was obeyed, and in a few
minutes tho men with arms at right
shoulder wcro marching up the road
wayIt couldn't bo called a street
tho gentleman leading tho way. When
they reached tho danco house they filed
In and were drawn up In line before the
only door. The gentleman then brought
them to an "aim" and remarked to the
"Every man on bis head."
Ono or two who saw blood in his
eye obeyed Instantly, but It was some
minutes before all followed.
Every man obeyed the order. Then
the gentleman directed the man who
had Insulted him to get up on a table
and danco. "When the sport became
tiresome the manager of the show turn
ed the men over to the sergeant and
ordered him to march them back to the
Who was the gentleman? Second
Lieutenant Ned Browning In other
words, myself. I bad brought tho
recruits up tbb river and on the., even
ing of our arrival had fallen into the
water and barely escaped drowning. I
bad no change of uniform, but I did
have a suit of "clt's" clothes. After ft
rubbing I pnt them on and, having
nothing better to do, thought I would go
up and see something of frontier life.
I saw more than I bad bargained for.
That episode taught me a lesson. The
wearing of anything to attract attention,
, whether from Its peculiarity or from
I contrast, is more likely to harm than
benefit the wearer. Since that episode
I have bad a distaste to wearing any
oxcept ordinary clothing or clothing un
befitting my surroundings. I would nt
any time rather be undepressed than
orerdrewed. LENA M. BROOKS..

Federal System of Inspection
Washington, June 19. A oill
which h acceptable to President
Roosevelt provides an appropria
of three million dollars annually
for the purposes of meat .inspector1.
The officials will be appointed
under the civil service system.
The message recently sent to the
Senate by the President urged haste
in the matter cf a bill providing
for the proper inspecton of the big
meat packing houses, both as re
gards their sanitary condition and
the condition of the animals slauglw
tered and packed.'" The message
was based on the report sent in by
Labor Commissioners McNeil and
Reynolds, the publication of which
has turned public sentiment against
the packers 1 nd resulted in n lessen
ing of the sale of their products
amounting to millions of dollars.
A brief summary of charges
made by the government investi
gators is as follows:
Floors found so fitly that blo'fld
and grease oozed through and Tell
upon good meat about to b:
canned. , -
Employers walked .around in
dirt in which they had expectorat
ed, gathering up possible bacilli
and tifterward walking on carcasses,
In one case a hog slipped from
the trolley and fell into a 'J.vile
place; it was taken out and put up
for food with -the others, without
having been cleaned. ' f" "
Dried meat was placed in the
same room with good meat, in
tended for canning.
Potted hams appeared to consist
of pig-skin and other cast-off pieces
of hog, colored and put 011 the
market. ' i
The packers have replied to the
President's charges, saying that
they are unjustified, and that any
inspection measure would be'wfi'n
come. u h
The accusations that meat'r was'
dragged over floors and that there
was need of better light, ventilation
and toilet facilities, .with the.last
named further removed from the
rooms where meat is prepared,
The replies of various packing
firms are as iollows: ,f & W
Armour and Co. ''We heartily
favor government inspeclon 'that
will cover both meats and Sanitary,
conditions. Our packing houses
have been open to the public for
forty years and during that time we
have satisfied doctors, chemists,
sanitarians and official government

who have visited our plants can

Swift and Co. "We nimto
maintain a high standard of sani
tation. The Beveridge bill should
form a basis for a good law. We
want our government's certificate
to represent the highest standard.."

"Our plant is modem and we wel
come inspection even by the Pre
sident himself. We do not believe
that there is anything in our sani
tary conditions that can be cri
ticized." Long Cruise of Yncht.
Dingy gray in color and weather
worn by her five mouths at sea, but
clean-drawn and looking every inch
the yacht she is, the little ketch
Anemone the competor from the
Atlantic coast in the trans-Pacific
race came into the Harbor of San
It is utterly unnecessary to say
that the men on board were glad to
reach port the first port entered
since leaving New York Dec. 14.
Captain Henry Lindeberg, the
skipper of the Anemone, and his
crew hove, in fact, been almost cut
off from the world for 144 days, fpr
as before stated they touched ut rio
ports en route and spoke but few
vessels. They knew nothing of
the great earthquake and fire at
San Francisco.; they did not know
that Owner Tutt had entered the
yacht for the big ocean race to Ho
nolulu; and the papers which were
brought on board were eagerly wel
comed. They were the first papers
received since the day of sailing
from New York. . ' "
Loads In Athletics.
The American sportsman now
has the world beaten, says a writer
on athletics in a leading mainland
In scarcely any branch rf sport,
indoor or outdoor, have the experts
of the Old World succeeded in
In every gatrenot distinctly o
cal, as, for instance? cricket,' which'
being solely an English game' nat
urally finds its champion exponents,
in the tight little isle, the skill and
dexterity of Uncle Sam, allird to
his pluck and daring, havp given
.him the victory.
The recent triumph of the Ameri
cans in th6 Olympic games was
complete: Willie Hoppe has just
established an absolute mastery over
the billiard world as Frank Ives
ever enjoyed, horsemen on the other
side have their choice of getting
American jockeys or losing their
races; Travis holds the amateur
golf champiouship of England;
James J. Jeffries is so far above
any fighter the Old World cquld
produce that it would be suicide
for the man they attempted to put
against liitn; Frank Kramer has
just defeated the pick of Europe's
cyclists in the international matches
in London; Jay Gould, though
only a mere boy, beat every court
tennis player in England save only
the champion, and the latter admits
that it is only a question of a short
time beforp nobody can cope with
the grandson of the famous finan
cier; Miss May Sutton outclasses
the best women tennis players of
England, and so straight down the
line it will be found that the other
side cannot produce the kind of
material necessary to beat Uncle
The American victory in the
games at Athens was particularly
satisfying. Barring half a dozen
of the Britishers, the other athletes
in the competition fell laughably
behind those who crossed the At
lantic to get in the competition.
Of the twenty-two Olympic re
cords, nineteen are now held in
this country. The only exceptions
are the five-mile run, held by Haw
trey, of England; the Marathon
race, where Sherring, of Canada,
is the premier, and the polevault,
vyhere Gonder, of France, is tied
with Dvorak, of Michigan.
''Miss Sutton, after winning the
National championship in Philadel
phia, last spring went abroad, and
simply outclassed everything on
the other side. Against the cham
pion of the British Isles she won
by the holtow score of 6-o, 6-o, 6-0.
The tenuis experts of the old coun
try admitted their utter inability to
cope with the young American
girl, with a wrist of iron and un
limited speed and endurance.
Willie Hoppe has only been out
of his knickerbockers for a few
years, yet he was able to beat Vig
naux, of France. Seventeen-years
old Jay Gould did not win the court
tennis championship of Great Brit
tain, but he went through the pre
liminary rounds, only being finally
downed by the veteran, Eustace
