ticket to Loudon. Telegraph tolls
and railway fare were In the nature of
fixed charges whicli bad to be met In
current coin of the realm. For all else
in the campaign any candidate who
came before the Irish people for their
suffrages with the indorsement of
f.l..ln Cfnrrnrt P.nrncll W3S justified
in reiving on the zeal of Nationalism to
see him through without any further
financial requirement than possioiy
the mere formality of giving his note.
When the canvass was over and the
votes wfre counted. "Tay Pay" was
returned at the iiead of the poll and
stood without any money at the begin
ning of a career which has met with
its measure of success.
Going back to London on the wisely
provided return ticket, the newly elect
ed mcnilier of parliament found him
self without a penny in his pocket. He
was In the company ot tne leuow juui
nallst who tell the story and who was
alf-o devoid of coin. Both were desirous
of celebrating the great victory ol me
cause of constitutional government, but
even credit was out of their reach. This
was a sad state of affairs, as will read
ily be appreciated.
'..m,oro mm- watch?" asked the
companion, who might not be sure if
his own watch was going, but who
knew where it had gone.
"Sure, it's up already" replied the
new member, but instiuetively his fin
ger slipped into the accustomed waist
coat pocket and there found a watch
indeed. "That's not my waicu ui .u.
I never had so good a one," said J.ay
Pay." "1 wonder where did I get it?
Ah", now I remember. It was the last
place I spoke at, in the far end of Gal
wav. There was only one train to get
away on, and I could speak only just
so long. So, uot to lose my train by
speaking too long and not to lose
my election by speauing too suori,
tnct borrowed this watch irom tne
chairman of the meeting to time my
self by, and when I was turougn
I put the watcli in my pocKet
and came away with it. It's a nne
watch, and I'm thinking It would bet

can send it back to its owner."
This was immediately can led into
effect. The chairman's watch was put
where it would be quite safe, and with
the proceeds the new member and his
friends celebrated the victory for the

Magnificent Country Scat on the
Banks of Lake Chnmplatn nnd Un
der tUe Shndotv of the Green Moun
tain Village of Fnrm BnlldlngB.
Shelbckne, Vt, Oct. 23. One of
the pleasing events in connection with
Admiral Dewey's return to his native
"Green Mountain State was his visit to
8hettrarne Farms, the magnificent estate
of Dr. TSV. Seward Webb, and the pros
pect that the admiral will be supplied
mfh n hicrh Ktermins. standard bred
team from these famous stables gives
added interest to the place. The farms
m-iE n tract of nearly 4,000 acres,
admirably situated on the eastern shores
of Lake Champlain. The estate is laid
out like a park, much attention being
paid to tree culture, which is in charge
of a forestry expert. It possessesa great
diversity of scenery, which, with the
embellishments of the landscape gar
dener's art, makes it one of the most
beautiful country seats in the United
States. Behind it rise the Green moun
tains, while in front lies the lake and
beyond that the Adirondacks.
The estate is about three-quarters of
o , fmm Khnlhnrne station and is
reached by a well kept road which skirts
its eastern boundary. At the entrance
the road sweeps through a fine avenue
of stately trees whose foliage meets
overhead, affording in summer a de
lightful shade from the sun, in winter
a grateful shelter from the winds. Dr.
Webb's superb summer house, the
homes of the employees and numerous
farm buildings make a good sized vil
lage. There is a powerful electric plant
and a telephone system which connects
all the buildings. There are cattle and
being 37 by 85 feet. The roof is sup
ported bv iron girders, which stretch
from wail to wall, so that no pillars or
supports obstruct the horse exercising
arena. The walls are partly of stone,
and in the roof there are numerous
dormer windows, which give the struc-
ture"an attractive appearance.
The main entrance is a lofty arched
doorway, through which can be driven
a tallyho coach with its passengers
standing up. Once Inside, one observes
rows of roomy box stalls placed along
the wall, each box being 12 by 16 feet,
with large windows on the outside, and
the door of each opening into the ring.
The floor above the boxes is arranged
for the storage of hay and other fodder.
But the ring itself is the great attrac
tion. The floors are of natural earth,
upon which has been placed a layer of
nn nnA .Oaf tirall rnllpd. nnd QH tOU
are two small rings, aeep wim nmm,
for the foals to plunge in as they take
their first lessens in halter education.
Near the breeding stables is a largo
kite shaped track for speeding Dr.
Webb's trotting stock, which include
some noted sires and dams, besides a
TiTmiher of sueedvnerformers and prom
ising youngsters. But the stock is by
no means confined to trotting or racing
horses. Here are to be seen some of the
finest imported French coach horses ob
tainable in Enrope and some of the best
hackneys ever bred in either England
or the" United States. The hackney
seems to be Dr. Webb's favorite, and
there are on the farm a number of brood
mares that are the daughters or grand
daughters of the most celebrated hack
ney stallions that England ever pro
duced. Fine specimens of Russian
ponies are also bred on the farm.
Horse breedinsr is. however, not thi
only enterprise of the farm, equal at
tention being given to cattle and sheep
and general farm products. The main
farm barn "is the most imposing build
ing on the premises. It is an immense
structure built on three sides of a
square, the fourth consisting of a mass
ive stone wall with a gateway in the
middle, the whole inclosing a yard over
400 feet long by 200 feet wide. The
central part of the building is 410 feet
long. 50 feet deep and hve stories ingu.
On either side of this are wings, also
five stories high and 260 feet long, and
are flanked with cone shaped towers.
This immense barn is surmounted by a
high tower, in which a great clock tolls
the hours melodiously, yet so loudly
that it can be heard all over the 4.000
acre farm. Johx R. Webster.

"TAY PAY'S" FINANCIERING.
How He Ral.cd Money to Celebrnte
When Paruell was a dominant power
in parliament, it was a happy period
fnr a number of bright but impecuni
ous Irishmen who saw the chance to
enter on caivers of which the uncer
tainty was to them not the least at
tractive element. Some of that crowd
have vanished in obscurity, some have
died and a few have made names. Of
this latter category is T. P. O'Connor,
who is now running a thriving per
sonal Journal with the title Mainly
About People, which is commonly cited
by abbreviation as "M. A. P.," just as
its editor is best known as "T. P.," or
"Tay Pay" was struggling as a Lon
don journalist when his chance came.
The story Is told by one now here who
was associated with him in the same
work- under the same class of condi
tions. It was a haphazard life, rich In
experience, but by no means rich in
money. There came a vacancy in the
Irish representation, and Parnell had
decided that "Tay Pay" might contest
the seat, but there was very little mon
ey with the aspiring politician and his
Immediate friends. It was only by tak
ing up a contribution of shillings from
stray journalists that the money was
raised to defray the cost of telegraph
ing tn Ireland the announcement of the.
caudldacy. Tho fare for the journey,
to the seat of the campaign was raised
in the same way, and prudent counsels!
prevailed to the extent of taking a re-(
turn ticket, for It was manifest that

SOME AWFUL DEATHS.
FEARFUL FORMS IN WHICH
GRIM DESTROYER CALLS.
The Tenom of n Sooth Australian
Spider nnd the Frlchtfnl Aitouy It
Cannes A Grain That Make 1U
Victim n RilnK Maniac.
What is the most awful shape in
which death may come to mortal man?
Not by Are, nor by water, uor by guu
shot. These are mere pleasures to
some of the deaths by which you may
The most agonizing of all is caused
by an insect half the size of a pea a
cn.,n i.iooL- snfiipr. It lives in Peru
and South Australia, but a few speci
mens have reached Europe and Amer
ica in shiploads of timber. Not long
ago a dock laborer was unlucky
enough to come upon one In the Vic
toria docks while unloading a bark.
'Plip tlnv dwitli dealer dronned linon
the back of his hand and dug Its fangs
into his flesh. The bite itself was noth
ing, but as boon as the poison began to
work the man fainted with pain. Soon
afterward lie came to and lived tlircc
days before the end came.
This spider's venom scorches up the
blood vessels and spreads through all
the tissues, causing the most fearful
agony a human being can have to bear.
The worst of it is that the victim lives
at least two days, enduring unthinka
ble anguish the whole time. This spi
der Is luckily not common. It is known
as the "sneckv." and when a man who
knows what the bite means Is bitten he
generally blows out his brains.
Another fearful death Is caused by
eating a grain called "bhat." This
sometimes gets mixed with rice, which
it resembles. The plant grows In tho
east, and a few grains of it will drive

An American In Porto Rico.
The most amusiug sights grow out of
the attempts of the numerous Ameri
cans who drop into San Juan to navi
gate among the native Porto Ricaus.
As I went into the breakfast room of
the hotel a loud voiced American was
vociferating wildly, while a crowd
gathered round him. As I approached
he shook both lists at the crowd and
veiled "Boiled ecu's!" If he had said
"eggs" merely, somebody might havu
The "boiled eggs," spoken as one
word, floored everybody, and i sat
down at a distance to take In the scene.
He cursed them up hill and down as a
pack of jackasses and besought them
to tell him where they had gon to
"Kool, kool, yes'." cried the head
waiter. "I know kool." And he immedi
ately brought a plate of cracked ice.
The American exploded, but I stepped

stupidity of the heathenish people and
his utter failure to drive any sense Into

metal, as unfortunate workmen some
times do, sounds bad enough, but It Is
mercifully quick. There Is a South
American vine called the "knotter,"
which is far worse. It twines around
any living thing that comes within
reach, twisting its long tentacles about
a man as a devilfish might. These
tentacles sear and burn into the flesh
like white hot wires, and the victim is
dragged Into the heart of the foliage
and his juices slowly drained, as a
spider sucks the blood of a fly.

in the acute stage and in his last hours
is slmnlv tied ud in knots and bent
backward and forward like a bow.
It Is a very rare disease with human
beings, for most people bitten by rabid
dogs, a small number at most, escape
it. In extreme cases the patient act

and, next to experiencing it, the worst
thing is to watch a case. It Is as dis

as If every inch of him were being
strained to breaking point, aud the
agony which results is too awful for

dies a senseless Imbecile.
But. all said and done, perhaps there
is no death much worse than by the
common disease of cancer, which

Mis Little Contribution.
One of the many stories told of the
late Dr. Wallace, M. P., Is to the effect
that when the editor of a local paper
In the north asked him "if he would
kindly furnish an article on 'a Ilghi
theological topic'" Wallace responded
with one bearing the title "The Rela
tions Between the Presbyterian Church
and Modern Thought." When set up
the article made 40 columns, aud It be
came a puzzle to editor and printer
how to get rid of It They began by
using It in pieces, and whenever the
printer said to the editor, "We've got
uo leader." the reply was, "Eh, mon,
just sneck off about a column and a
quarter o" Wallace." In this way the
contribution was used, flrst working
down from the beginning, then up
ward from the end. London Academy.

It was night, and the silvern rays of
the moon sifting through tho woodbine
leaves disclosed to the view of a close
observer an indistinct mass that might
be most anything, possibly a young
man and a young woman In a ham
mock on a piazza. It was a beautiful,
calm, serene night, when the leaves in
the trees barely rustled. Ever and
anon, however, there came forth from
that blurrv mass a sound that broke
the stillness. It was a peculiar. Inde
scribable sound, similar to .that emitted
when two sheets of stick fly paper are
hastily torn apart. Suddenly from a
second story window above came a
large, deep voice that was easily that
of the owner of the premises.
"For heaven's sake. Maud, what are
you doing down on tho piazza?" was
the query which awoke the echoes of
the night and startled that same Inert
mass Into Immediate action.
For a second all was once more still,
