"Hon. Michael A. Dangherty, of
Lancaster, and Senator Virgil C.
Lowry, of Logan, aro being promi
nently mentioned for the Democrat
ic nomination for Congress to con
test with Albert Douglas, of Chilli
cotbe. Both aro strong men, Mr.
Daugberty boing probably tho most
powerful stamp speaker in tho state.
Either would make a strong race
and with tho dis-affectlon existing
because of the raw deal given Gen.
Grosvenor in tho recent Republican
convention, would stand a good
show of election."
It may be remarked that Judge
Wright and Col. Wcldy, of our
county, have both declared a pur

Oar Dumb Animals.
In 1871 the ship Swuliow left the
Cape of Good hope for England.
Among the passengers was a child
of two years witn her nurse. The
nurse had on hoard a large New
foundland dog called Nero. On a
bright, sun shiny day when all the
passengers were on deck, their
mirth was suddenly interrupted by
a loud and piercing scream. It was
soon learned thjat the little one bad
fallen overboard into the i-ea. The
poor woman in her despair would
have flung herself into the sea after
her charge, had she not been re
strained. But without a word from
any one Nero rushed to the edge
of tbe vessel, there was a leap, a
splash and for a time Nero and the
child were lost sight of. Soon his
black bead appeared above the
waves holding the child in his
mouth. Tho engine was stopped
as soon as possible, but tbe dog and
child were far behind in tbe wake
of the vessel. Over the leaping,
dancing waves tbe dog's black head
r could Just be seen, holding in bis
mouth the child. A boat was
quickly lowered and tho sailors
pulled for the dark spot upon the
waves, where tbe dog was still
holding the child. Sometimes the
waves would hide the dog and
child, but at last they were taken
in. As the boat came to tbe ships
aide a hundred bands were ready
to help tbe brave dog and child on
board. The mother dropped on
ber knees, took the dog's shaggy
bead in both bands and kissed bis
rret face again and again.
It was curious to see Nero watch
ing tbe child during tho remainder
of the voyage. If the child wan
dered near tbe edge of the vessel,
Nero would fasten his teeth in her
dress and draw ber back. He kept
a close watch over ihe child until
they arrived on shore. Nero lived
at the home of his little mistress
until be died of old age, when they
gave him a grave in the family bur
ial plot and marked it with a fair
white stone, on which is engraved,
'Sacied to the memory of Xero."

If the method of punishing wrong

large extent tho unjust punishment
inflicted upon tho prisoners destitute
wife and innooent children, and
would be a move, in the right diroo
tion. Haste tho day.
The Taming of Animals.
The faming of animals, and espec
ially our common birds and mammals
is by no means such a mysterious
art as many persons suppose it to be,
said G. Alden Loring, who has sorv
ed as Geld naturalist for tho U. S.
biological survey and tbe Smithson
ian Institute. Most animals respond
quiokly to kind treatment.
"Once assured of our friendliness
they seek our company, build their
homes near ours and visit our
grounds in search of food. Sometimes
they become so confiding that they
enter our houses, tuko food from our
fingers and oven peroh on onr hands.
But if we hunt them and do all we
can to destroy them, their attitude
toward us is just the reverse. They
take to the open fields and aro over
on the alert for danger.
"Probably tuore am no better il
lustrations of the ability of some an
imals to take care of themselves once
tbey understand that we are their
enemies than the cases of the com
moa crow and the woodclmuk or
ground hog. Hero we have two
animals that have been pcrsecutnu"
f.-oru the time that the country was
first settled, yet despite the wonder
ful improvements in firearms, traps,
etc, their numbers have not become
smaller in the least while animtls of
greater strength but weaker minds
have been exterminated.
"What has been the result of tho
warfare against these animals? It
has served to mako them specialists
in the art of self-prerervalion and
to-day Jim Crow and Mr. Wood
ohuck have tbe reputation of boing
two of tbe smartest animals living.
Some Good Advice.
In the address of Mr. Fergan of
Chicago, vice president of one of
tbe greatest banks in tho country,
which address we bavo referred to
before, in some advice to young
men about saving their money. Ae
a help to this, he recommends
making use of tho savings bank (
which he says is "tho best securi
ty for them against temptation to
extravagance and dishonesty."
This is solid advice. It helps
not only to save money but to build
character. When these two things
go together, tho young lifo will
prove a success. Extravaganco Is
apt to go with bad habits. A
young man who is free with his
money is inclined to fall into such
practices as will interfore with a
high purpose. Temperance in eat
ing and drinking is generally tho
result of temperanco in spending
So, withort any intention of ad
vertising savings banks, one might,
with great truth, speak of them as
moral as well as financial institu
tions; and whenever ayoungmun
visits one to deposit sumo of hit)
savings, be is narrowing the area of
bad habit a nil titclt t,s extruvugance
utid broadening the opportunity of
waking ix .hotter luun of himself.
The Consulship at
Hon. Fred Bright, of our city tind
ono our most esteemed young mon,
recently noininnted by Gou. Gros
vonor for the Consulship at Hud
dlesford, England, has returned
from Washington oity, whoro ho
has been for tho two weeks past,
undergoing tho civil Hervico exami
Referring to this appointment
the Washington city Post has the
following to Bay:
"A few years ngo Grosvonor got
tho job for Ben Stone, of Chilli
cothc. Later on Stono who had
tired of a foreign rcsidenco, wanted
to ho postmaster at Chillicotlm and
usked tho place of Grosvenor. It
was refused and Stono became
wrothy, hurling anathemas at Gros
venor and nil others in Ross county.
Thou it was thut Gen. Grosvenor

whiskers and let the stato depart

Stone's job to Homo other good and
tractable man in tho same district.
It is hit unusual for a mull desig
nated to be a consul, to uivo out
advance notice until he hns been
appointed. It seems chat tho job
was picked out for Fred J. Bright,
a member of tho last Legislature.

a joke in Washington that only ono
man over failed for a consular ex
amination and he could not read or
write. Jokes aside however, a man
must know something of govern
mental matters and if Bright hns
