Something Has Happened
Railroad representatives who
went to Columbus, Ohio, to defeat
the two-cent rate bill, declare that
they "never ran against such a
game" in their livos. Tho legis
lators simply would not listen " to
them. And one of them adds:
"Tho funny part of it 1b that
every one of them is strictly hon

est one of them $100,000. tho first
thing he would do would bo to ex

"Louis B. Houok, spcrotary to
the governor, in a public address
nsBerts that tho Ohimnnyors ought
to closo their respective towns on
Sunday instead of looking to Gov
qrnor PattiBon to do it. If Mr,
Houck or any other Democrat had
made such speeches before the
election in Cincinnati and other
large cities Governor Pattison
would be quietly concluding his
insurance business at Cincinnati,
while Mr. Houck would have been
slowly plodding along in his law
practice in the county seat of
Knox. It is great to be brave
after the bear has been killed."

Since the only Democrat elocted
on the state ticket in Ohio was
just the man who irndo such
speeches, it would Beom that tho
people of Ohio liked them. Wero
not Governor Pattison's addresses
read In ."Cincinnati and other
large cities?" The fact is, these
.larger cities want a quiet Sabbath
as well s the smaller places. On
any strnightout issue of Sunday
saloon closing and Sabbath observ
ance the American Sabbath would
carry by majorities in Clovelnnd,

decided on at the meeting held at
the Hnllendeii hotel Thursday, nnd
in conjunction with a similar de
cision reached by Illinois operators
Wednesday, leaves little hope that
a great coal strike can be avoided
No formal action was taken, but
the sense of the meeting was that
-11 who could should go to Indian
apolis to meet the operators of
other states and oppose wage con
cessions by every means in their
power. Word was received that
similar action was expected at the
meeting Fridty of the operators of
the Pittsburg district.

President John Mitchell, of the
United Mine Workers, will not nt
tend the mass meeting of striking
miners to he held in tho Irwin dis
trict on Saturday evening. A
telenrum from President Mitchell
received at the local headquarters
today stated that urgent biifciness
prevents him from leaving New
Yoik p-ior to the convention in
Indianapolis on Mnrch 15. The
situation in the Irwin field U un
changed with the exception that
the 1 )cl loaders expect a number
of other miners to join the strikers
and completely tie up tho Irwin
field. About 250 men are now out
and unless their demands for
recognition of the union are heed
ed, it is said that others will join

An Old Fashioned Place, Curious Even
Jalapa means a "plnco of water
and saiult." It was an Indian town
nt the time of the conquest, and be
cause of its position on what for a
long while was the main road be
tween Vera Cruz nnd the City of
.Mexico it early became a place of
importance. After the establish
ment of the republic it was made
the capitnl of the state of Vera
Cruz. Between the jears Tl'10 and
1777" a great animal fair was held
hero for tho sale of goods brought
for years by the licet from Cadiz,
whence it derived the name or Ja
lapa de la 1'eria, frequently applied
to tile city in dopiinrtmU of tho
The city is famous throughout
Mexico for the exceeding beauty of
its women and of its situation. From
these, its pleasing characteristics,
arise the saying that Jalapa is a
part of heaven let down to earth,
and tho proverb, "Las .Jalapenas son
lmlaguenns" (bewitching, alluring
ure the women of Jalapa). A less
pleasing characteristic, ils frequent
days of mist and rain, at once tho
cause of and a very serious draw
back upon the enjoyment of its
green loveliness, has given rise to
yet another saying in Jalapa. During
these inelanchoh Java ihe Jnlaneno,
muflled in hu serape and smoking,
dismally mutters, "Ave Maria puri
sima, pue venga el sol!" (Holy Vir
gin, let the sun shine I)
The city is a curious, old fashion
ed placer-curious even in Mexico,
where everything seems odd to tho
tourist with narrow, crooked
streets, lined with tile roofed
houses, whose pitched roofs project
their eaves so far that they seem to
cover the sidewalks like a shed, and
pending from these are spouts to
carry the rainfall from the roof to
the center of the roadwav. The cilv
has a perfect drainage system, based
upon and indeed consisting almost
entirely of the facilities so lavishly
bestowed by nature in the shape of
rain and grade. The streets slope
gently from the sidewalk on cither
side to the center of the roadway,
thus practically forming high
troughs or gutters, and all dirt or
refuse matter is immediately washed
beyond the city limits by the rains,
winch fall, at least for a short time,
almost daily throughout the entire
year. This accounts for the scrupu
lously clean appearance of the city,
which impresses those who have vis
ited other Mexican cities not so ad
vantageously located in respect to
drainage as Jalapa. So abrupt is
the descent of the streets down the
side of the hill that no attempt is
made to use carts or carriages for
transportation of goods or persons.
A tramway which provides a means
of transportation to Coatepec runs
through a portion of the main ihor
oughfare and is tho only wheeled ve
hicle to be found within the city lim
its, and even this requires six mules
to haul it up tho steep grades from
the railroad station lo the hotels.
All merchandise ia carried from one
part of the city to another by carga
dores and pack nvulc3, which latter
are utilised extensively nnd almost
lo the exclusion of the burro and the
A walk through the streets of tho
city is repaid by many interesting
sights. The lavanderas, or washer
women, pursue their vocation in th
public streets at large basins or
troughs, which have boon placed iu
all parts of the city fi'f their accom
modation. The churches aro open
all through the day, and at all hours

A Kicker Vlto Was Only Speaking
Generally About Teeth.
"It's funny about a person's
teeth," remarked the man who had
ordered soup and chicken hash for
hi3 lunch. "At least it isn't bo
blamed funny as it's curious. You
take the teeth and the finger nails,
"Well?"' said the man opposite.
"A man's finger nails grow, don't
"Certainly. So does his hair."
"Well, what's the use? We don't
need our hair or our finger nails
not moi e than a certain length any
way but I hey keep sprouting right
along, just ns if we did and just as
long as we live."
"Oh, I don't know," said the oth
er man, parsing his hand over the
toi of his head.
"Well, your finger nails do any
way. But you just get your one
crop of leelii, and they've got to do
ou. There's nothing more coming
"I always understood there were
"Yes, the baby teeth. Thai's so.
But that's only another instance of
the foolishness of the wnole arrange
ment. J low do we start iu? With
out any teeth at all. Then we begin
cutting 'em. They worry us night
and day and make us drool all over
our bibs, so that .vu must have our
white, dresses changed every few
hours, and they . ike us up at night
fco that our parent have to carry us
around aud Miig to U3 nnd give us
soothing sirup that makes morphine
fiends of us iu after life, nnd not
only that, they disorder our little
stomachs and send us into convul
sions, from which we frequently die.
"Ask me something easy."
"That keeps up i" about two
years, and, having gone through
with all that, you'd suppose a kid
might be provided with toeth for
life. But no. The last stomach
tooth is hardly in before the first
front tooth begins working loose.
And then there's toothache. The
first toothache. My landl Then
your mouth gets filled with salt or
the teeth do und cloves are wedg
ed in them and cotton batting soak
ed with cicosote that takes the skin
all offvthe inside of your mouth
and camphorated chloroform and all
manner of stuff. You go through
the mental anguish of having a
string lied to some cuspid or incisor
and to the handle of a door. You
are taken to the dentist and obliged
to use a toothbrush.
"Then the 7iew teeth come, and
they have lo be straightened. Then
it is noticed that one has begun to
decay, and it is scooped out and in
laid with precious metals. Others
follow. Then .come the drilling
and filling of tlie back teeth, ulcera
tion, desperation, distraction and ex
traction. One bv one thev are crown
ed, bridged, buttressed and other
wise repaired until at the age of for
ty, perhaps fifty or sixty anyway
with twenty or thirty good years of
life before him---a man is practically
toothless, after having been trou
bled more or less all his days. Now,
1 claim nature is dead wrong there.
Teeth ought lo grow like hair, as
fast as they aru worn off well, fin
ger nails then I kppp forgetting
you are bald. Teeth aie to the ma
jority simply a nuisance and an ex
"Why don't you have the snags
out and an artificial set put in and
have done with it ? Haven't you got
the nerve .'
"Snags ! Me ? Why, mun, I could
bite off the end of a tenpenny nail
and chew it like gum. I never had a
toothache or oA a tooth in my life.
I'm speaking generally." Chicago
