On,e of the pet. hobbies of Senator
Christopher Magee was his newspaper,
the Pittsburg Times. He kept the
paper well to the front, and it was a
credit to modern journalism. One
morning the Times had been scooped
on a railway wreek.
"Senator,'' asked an intimate ac
quaintance, "how do you console
yourelf on the loss of that wreck
story this morning?"
"By congratulating ourselves," he
answered quickly, "that we are

at the recent alumni dinner in New
"The easiest way in raising fundo,
as in other things, is the wrong way.
I remember a man and his easy spell

head and smiled and said:

" 'The rule is simply this: Write
your "i'' and "e'' exactly alike and
put your dot exactly between them.'"

Speaker Cannon, at the recent
Gridiron Club dinner in Washington,
stood up for the senate.

"that it had sapernatural- powers.
