A DISTINGUISHED SIDE-SHOW.
Governor Van Sant of Minnesota i5
a mild-mannered and obliging man,
but after a recent incident, in which
he was the central figure, he remarked
with sincere feeling:
"It's a long worm that has no turn.
ing, and its about time to turn when
I am made a side-show feature."
He visited the St. Louis Fair and
entered a restaurant with his secre
tary, searching for a hasty lunch.
The Governor was recognized, and
shown all possible attention, but as
he was about to begin cating, he was
surprised to hear the "barker" out
side the tent shout, as he swung the
"Step right this way to get your
Nice warm lunch. Only chance you
may ever have to see the Governor of
Minnesota eat. He is just sitting
down to the table, and he can't get
through for half an hour. Plenty of
time to watch the whole performance
and shake his hand when he gets
through. Come right in and watch
dim feed, and it won't cost you one
cent extra, as long as you order the
regular bill .of fare."
In a few minutes the tent was
crowded, and the blushing Governor
and his fidgety secretary had to grin
and bear it, until they could obtain
their purposely delayed orders, and
show the crowd how the Chief Ex
ecutive "fed" when he is roaming at
WHERE FREEDOM SHRIEKED.
When W. J. Bryan was making his
oratorical campaign, he found
himself one Sunday in a little town
of the northwest, the chief institu
tion in which was the state peniten
tiary. The warden, an ardent
admirer of the democratic leader,
invited him to address the convicts
on some patriotic subject, and Mr.
Bryan readily acceeded, though, as
he afterwards explained, he did not
expect to get many votes thereby.
"It was one of the best audiences I
ever addressed," said he afterwards.
"I usually hold my hearers pretty
well, but I may say that never before
or since have I talked to a consider
able meeting without having one
single man get up and go out. Of
course I had to be rather careful in
my choice of a subject. It seemed to
me that any impassioned tribute to
the blessings of freedom would be
out of place, but I found later that
my compunctions on this subject
were quite baseless. When I had
finished the chaplain requested all
present to rise and join in singing
'America,' and I assure you that no
lie of our national anthem was roared
out with more genuine enthusiasm
by these striped convicts than
"Sweet land of liberty!"
PRESIDENT BUCHANAN'S TREAT.
Ex-Senator James L. Pugh of Ala
bama has many interesting remin
iscences to relate. One story he told
the other day related to some famous
i whiskey which President Buchanan
had at the White House in 1860.
The equestrian statue of Washing
ton in the circle between Twenty
third and Twenty-fourth streets was
unveiled one day in the early part of
February, 1860," said Senator Pugh.
"Of course, the president and his
cabinet had to be there too.
"About two hours before the
ceremonies were to occur I met a
congressman and suggested that we
go by the White House and see old
'Buck,' as we called the president.
"Maybe he'll put out some of that
fine old whisky we have heard so
much about,' I said. 'They say its'
fine, and I am quite anxious to taste
it, and as the weather is so terrible
he will probably treat.'
"Sure enough one of the first things
the president did was to suggest that
we might be dry and need warming
up on such a cold, damp day. He
called the whisky 'Insurrection,'
whisky because it was some distilled
along about 1785 when George Wash
ington had to go to Pennsylvania
himself to assist in puting down the
riots that broke out in that state.
"This whisky was over eighty years
old the day 'Old Buck' asked us to
take a drink with him. I was anxious
to taste it to find out if it was better
than any other, but it wasn't a bit
better than What we are drinking
right now, gentlemen.
"In those days we didn't drink out
of glasses such as we have now. They
were large tumblers, and when the
decanter was passed over to me by
the president himself I took what
you may call a sockdolager-the
tumbler nearly two-thirds full. • The
president noticed it and he said:
"Pugh you take a h- of a big
drink, but I suppose it is due to the
weather, and I will take a good sized
"The president never allowed any
man to have the second drink of
'Insurrection' whisky. One was all,
but he was most hospitable, and
when not busy it was his custom to
invite congressmen to take a smile
with him, and you could get other

Rumor has been current that the
Great Northern intends to organize a
land company to take over all the
business now conducted by the land
department. At present the land be
longing to the company is over 8,000
000 acres, and it is its desire to popu
late it with the very best settlers and
build up the resources of the west.
A number of men from the east are
in the city, inspecting the possibili
ties of Northern Montana for farming
and grazing lands with irrigation fa
cilities. They are delegates from late
land owners in Canada who have'sold
their ranches and farms in that coun
