of the press now about Colonel lh
George W. Hooker of Vermont,
telling how he and ex-Congressman

fasted together in New York one
day and how the millionaire canal- I
operator told Colonel Hooker that f
he would give .ll his worldly pos
sessions for a good appetite-this

a breakfast of enormous proportions. a

without which it is really not col- r

The Register this week publishes
an extract from the report of the
senate committee relating to the
agricultural resources of Montana.
The statements are made frcnm
official sources, and are therefore t
reliable. The report is not in the
nature of a schoolboy oration,
neither does it resemble the senti
mental poetic effusions of a school
girl, who has just graduated in the
public schools. Many persons who

Seeing the Graves.
Just before leaving England for
Germany, writes Eugene Field to
the Chicago News. I went down to
llunhill Fields to see the graves o
four very great nen--Bunyan, )e
Foe. Watts and Ritson. The ceme
tery is a curious spot. as full of
interest as it is full of bones-the
name originally was tone hill.
One hundred and twenty-five lier
sons have been buried here. Rit
son's grave cannot be identified.
The antiquary requested that nt
mound or slab should be raised
above him, and that wish has beet,
complied with. "He was buried
snomewhere in the corner"-that it

to give. De Foe's grave is markco
i. hstaaunch obelisk, for which
his youthful readers have paid. A
comparatively new mlonulment
stands over Bunyan's grave; the
old slab was fairly hacked to Lits
and carried away by relic-hunters.
"I fancy," said I to the guide.
"that many of my countrymen visit
this saintly spot?"
"Oh, yes sir," said he, "they
come here in droves during the

"that this cemetery has a season,

would be more likely to appeal to
