Yes, stranger, I'm n man from of Mlsoury
And It's likely you'll be thlnklu' Vm a fool,
Fer 1 tell yoti 1 m n feelln' mnd as fury
At the slight which has been pu: upon tho mule.
Fifty thousand pounds they voted 'r tho vl-count,
Fifty thousand thumps was all they glvo the mule.
But I'm here to say, that reckonln' ly my count,
They must v' been roversln' of tl e rule,
The rulo fer the rewardln' of tho winner,
In the person of the feller who hn won It,
Fer as Burely as a mrotal man's a Brief,
'Twas the mule an' not tho Kitchener who done It.
Did the vl-count tote pervlslons fer tho army?
Did the vl-count drag the guns across tho veldt t
Did they ever cuss the vl-count, please Inform me,
As If ho had no feelln's to bo fett?
Did they over kick the vl-count In tho stomach.
When ho couIdnT. pull the wagons through the mud?
Did they ever hide behind him, like a hummock.
An' save themselves by lcttln' out his blood?
No, they dldnt. An' I tell you that the story
Your gran'chlldren will bo studyln" In school
Will say that Kruger still 'd hold Pretory
If It wasn't fer tho ol' Mlssoury mule.
An' that's tho thing what makes me mad as fury?
To think the way they worked us fer a tooll
So I Tell you I'm a warm one from Mlssoury

more stringent than any other of thi

It provides that none of tho school

MISS ROOSEVELT'S OUVENIR.

Alice Itosevelt, the daughter of the
President, and Miss Sarah Uoncdltch
of Albany, returned yesterday from tho
lodge of Robert C. l'ruyn of Albany,
Camp Santlnanonl, on Newcomb Lake,
a few miles from the starting point of

By Prof. F, E. DALTON.
In this age of athletics It Is really a
wonder that everyone cannot Bwlm, es
pecially when the essentials required
for It are only a few feet of water and
the arms and legs. There are few
places, even In our Interior towns and
cities, where the water cannot bo
found. Again, tile smallest child or
weakest woman can enjoy tho science
For those who have never tried to
swim these brief but thorough Instruc
tions are prepared.
When undressed rub yourself dowu
with a rough towel, and then walk Into
The first thing to be done on enter
ing Is to put your head under water,
open your eyes and accustom yourself
to the look of thlngi- under water,
which will overcome any fear that you
may possess. After this has been done
two or three times place any object
that Is hard and white at the bottom of
tUclvater, then try to pick It up, which
will necessitate opening the eyes.
"TThen thoroughly accustomed to tho
water, get an air bladder.
Personally, I think an air bladder Is
of more assistance in holding a person
In the water than a friend, as the blad
der keeps one up to a uniform height,
whereas when held up by a friend one
Is opt to either slip, tire or lose pa
iTcnce, and tile result is the pupil Is
unexpectedly lorced under tho water
and Is apt to lose confidence In his
power to keep afloat. Many who learn
to swim often wonder at their Blow
progress through the water, which is
solely occasioned by so many learning
the strokes Incorrectly; thereforo par
ticular attention should be given to tho
elementary or initial Btages.
In my varied experience I have found
that most nervous people gain confi
dence quicker on the back, as It Is not
only a 'more natural position, but It Is
of much easier for a beginner to breathe,
as so many have the tendency to tight
ly close the mouth when swimming ou
Start, then, by lying on the back,
cither held up by a person or by the
am of an air bladder; straighten your
self out, hold the head way back, tho
ears being under water. Some persotn
do not liko the water penetrating tho
ears; to overcome this place a little
cotton wool in each ear, then Infla'e
the abdomen, draw your arms up
alongside the body and straighten
tfleriT out In a straight line with Ihn
shoulders; then push the arms and
hands through the water until the lat
ter touch the legs. After some little
practice those movements will come
One great point beginners should al
ways remember keep the hands and
legs under the water. Many beginners
get frightened by having so much ct
the water wash over their faces. Thl"
can always be overcome by keeping
tho hands below the water When you
navo mastered these arm movements
fairly well commenco on the log
strok es. Start with the legs straight
ened out, the heels together, draw tl-o
feet up toward the body, keep thu
knees well turned out as far as pos
sible. Shoot the legs out wide, then
finish tho kick by bringing the leg-
straight together with a snap. Thii
stroke and way of swimming on the
back will be found to lie not only tho
easiest but tho best, for ono can lie on
his back ami rest by simply stretching
the arms back over the head In a
straight line with the boil.
For the breast stroke commence by
practicing the arm and leg movements
on shore. The hands should bo

shot out straight in front, then turn"
the hands fiat, palms downward, and
bring them straight round In a lino
with the shoulders; from there bend
tho cfuows back arin bring tho handr
together at the chest. For the leg ac
tion lie face downward on a stool,
draw the legs up, then kick them out
as wldo as possible; then bring the
legs straight together.
Tho leg movement Is the same as
on the back.
Practice tho arm strokes first, as
thejr aro easiest to manage. When
you have had a few days' practice, try
to swim; commence by bending for
ward with the hands straight In front
of you and give yourself a Blight puxj
with your legs; then try to do the
movements slonly and dot not shorten

The adjuncts' to the bathing costum-i

In thu suit for Hie water. And Btirly
she never had so many pretty thins
to her hand to achieve this result At
In the first place, she Is given dainty
laced sandals. These are n great Im
provement on the clumsy slipper "f

can be made to give tho prettiest arch
to the Instep and cures to the leg.
This Malvollo lacing. If ono may iu
call It, Is wonderfully fetching, and tho
summer girl will find It one of tbo
prettiest modes she can adopt.
For those who do not care to bothet
with It, however, come low shoes for
bathing that lace after tho manner of
the oxford. This fastens t,icm secure

than this arc the low shoes with straps
that cross over on tho Instep and but

Another accessory of the bathing

Washington, July 10. There Is con
siderable speculation In the army as
to the probable successor ot Lieut-Gen.

August 8. 1903, but It Is not generally
known that the duties of the office of
the Commanding Oencral are now
largely performed by Oen. S. M. B.
Young, the President of the War Col

partment that Oen, Miles Is command

appears on official orders, and routlns
papers pnss through his office, but
when advice Is desired by the Secretary
of War on matters affectlngthe army,
Oen. Young Is always called Into con
sultation. It Is definitely known that when Gen.
Miles retires, cither by reason "of age,
a year from now, or by order of tho
President. Oen. Young will be named as
his successor, but as Oen. Young re
tires for age on January 9, 1901, ho
will have only a few months to servo
and the real Interest, therefore, centers
In a successor to Oen. Young.
The friends ot Major-Gen. Corbln say,

of his conduct of the war with Spain.
