about 30 years ago brought with him
a fine pack of Iinglish hounds of

HAD NO EAR FOR MUSIC
Couldnt Tell the Spanish Fandango
from the National Hymn
Blimmer hasnt been very chipper
since lie came back from a trip to
the southwest He looks scared and
seems averse to talking about his
winter outing though he6 a good
talker and usually full of life
The truth is that Blimmer had
one of those experiences that make a
lasting impression He and Captou
maae ine trip logetner nna couniea
on the time of their lives Down
in a Texas town they went to the
theater A war with Spain was all
the talft and excitement ran high
When the orchestra played Yankee
Doodle the audience went wild
and wouldnt allow the curtain to go
up until they had the Star Spangled
Banner
Blimmer doesnt know one tune
from another but he entered into the
spirit of the thing and whooped him-
solf hoarse Juiter a pretty dancer
came on and the orchestra started on
a Spanish fandango Blimmer
thought this his cue to do some more
yeljing Ho jumped up waved his
hat and had let out about half a cheer
when ho -was tossed about so fast that
Capton couldnt keep track of him
Luckily the mayor was present To
him Capton explained Blimmors in
firmity His honor interfered and
his short speech stating that the gen
tleman had no ear for music was re
ceived with doubt Blimmer must
speak for himself lie cot up look
ing as though- he had been rolled
around undprh brush harrow but he
know how much depended on his elo
quence and the way ho sailed jnto
Spain beat any jingo that ever tackled
the job Youd think that every day
war was deferred was torture to
Jjim and ho so warmed the crowd up
that tho show was adjourned long
enough to let every fellow go out and
see a man Detroit Free Press

PRICES 0 AUTOCRATS
Are No Indication of the Writers PosU
tlon or His Wealth
It seems that the distinction or
worth of tho writer is no measure of
the commercial value of his handwrit
ing This painful fact is demon
ttrated in a recent catalogue of auto
graphs on Bale in New York
Ilere the public are offered tlie
handwriting of royalty and common
ers including all kinds and condi
tions and every degree of worth and
worthlessness virtue and vice genius
and stupidity at prices within tho
reach of all if their arms are long
enough
On tho first pago we find a noto of
a Rare Peter Stuyvesant Docu
ment at 150 while just below we
see letters from 26 modern actors at
just half the money Certainly Peter
was not much of an actor and any one
of tho male actors would have made
just as good a governor
Turning tho page we find tho mar
tyred Charles I at 45 while the
great Protector is thought worth only
40 You can get all four of the
English Georges for 15 Albert Ed
ward prince of Wales may be had
on mourning paper speaking of the
health of his princess for 850 prob
ably if he had written something of
the fragrant Lily it would have
been worjih much more
It is a pity no price is affixed to
Henry IV of France perhaps because
it is priceless but so is Charles tho
Merry of England who founded
many ignoble houses
The signature of Napoleon I is
cheap at 15 but then he was only

Bismarck thanking a lady for po
etical congratulations on his birth
day is reasonable at 9 considering
the effort it must have cost him to
read the poetry Barnum as well
known in hislifetime as any man in
the world costs only 50 cents while
Brigham Young costs ten times as
much
Art comes high Joshua Reynolds

Gerrit Smith distinguished philan
thropist temperance advocate and
abolitionist gave away nearly 200
000 acres of his estate to the poor

But if the philanthropist had the
bad luck to be hanged he is setdown
at 50 times as much John Brown of

There nre few local autocrraphs in

Tho richest man in the world

A SERIOUS MISTAKE

Deacon Jackson was a very pious
but very determined old colbred citi

however no sooner located on it

with both legs broken and his neck

LONG DISTANCE TELEPHOJte
riiri
Gives People Thousands of Miles Apart
Chance to Converse
So silently havo the long distancd
telephono wires crept across the coun
try and through tho south that tho
growth of their use is hardly appre
ciated even by the business men who
use them
It is but a few years since tho first
successful long dislauco telephone
was put in operation between New
York and Philadelphia This line
extending northward through Boston
to Maine and southward to Washing
ton still forms tho backbone of the
system Meanwhilo a lino has been
completed from New York by way of
Troy Buffalo and tho lake shore to
Chicago taking in tho large cities on
tho way
From Chicago there is a lino to
Nashville and thence to Memphis
from which point it will soon bo ex
tended to Little Rock and into Texas
Other lines from Chicago reach
northwest to Davenport and south
west to St Louis and tho great city
on tiro lake will bo connected soon
with Des Moines Kansas City and
Omaha
From Washington tho line will be
extended to Atlanta Montgomery
New Orleans and Houston All of
uhese lines that are not already con
structed are certain soon to be built
The interests chiefly served by thia
system of instant verbal communica
tion at long range are the great com
mercial houses at the larger cities on
the North Atlantic coast the lake
ports the packing andmanufacturing
concerns of the centraLilississippival
ley and the far reaching agricultural
and manufacturing interests at tho
south
Eastern bankers find long distance
telephones of service in verifying dif
ferences or correcting mistakes and
frequently call up interior banks
Chicago grain and meat product deal
ers who are heavy shirpors use tne
wires in arranging details of theii
business as do the representatives of
shipping interests at eastern points
Tho New England cotton goods man
ufacturers and southern dealers in
cotton are also in the habit of con
ferring verbally daily although hun
dreds of miles apart and although
the tolls for using the long distance
telephone range from about one dol
lar to ten dollars for five minutes
conversation the cost represents far
less than the expense of personal in
terviews and in tho saving of time
far outstrips in value the use of the
telegraph
Just what the relations between the
long distance telephone and the tele
graph people aro is top long for dis
cussion Thus far there has been no
open competition between them I
any event space has been practicalK
annihilated in the United States en t
of Omaha so far as the ability of
peoplo to converse is concerned and
it will not be long before this will be
true of the continent Youths Com

SLEEP AND DREAMS
How Acas3lz Worked Out a Scientific
Problem
Tho letters on sleep and dreams in
tho Spectator remind mo of a case in
thooxperienceof Agassizand which he
told me himself though it is recorded
in his work on tho American fishes
no was studying a fossil fish in tho
Jardin des Plantes but had never
been able -to determine the species to
his satisfaction After a time ho
dreamed that he caught tho vpry fish
and without difficulty determined the
question thinking as he woke from
the dream that he would have no dif
ficulty But on returning to the fossil
something in tho dream had escaped
him and he could no more determine
the species than before Tho nexi
night he hadi the same dream and
again forgot tho essential point He
then determined to takea pencil and
paper with him to bed and make his
note as soon as ho woke The dream
camo the third time but to his sur
prise on fully awakening ho found
tho drawing made and lying on the
table bedside with threonines tlis
plared in it which were novisiblo in
tho fossil and which solved tho prob
lem On returning to theijardin des
Plantes ho obtained permission of his
friend tho director to chip oway a
scalo of stone which lay pn tho spot
where tho bones wero in the drawing
and found themjhorc as hjs drawing
had given thorn It is 30 years since
Agagsiz told me the incident but
thoso who havo access to his history
of tho North American fishes will bo
able to read it in his own words in tho
introduction and correct my version
if my memory has in any dotail failed
