a country where we need not be great it
we would rather not. A czar really has
no alternative. Ho can aiuid being a

really has no fun at all. As soon as he
discovers that his lineage is big he is open
to criticism, and cannot do anything un
dignified. A czar who would play j-horstop In a
picked nine or go about the couutry deliv

cited. Many a long, hot summer day he
has to stay on a big red throne and nigt
while mediocre men go fishing. Jus', as
he thinks he is alooe and takes offliis hat,

we do not fully appreciate the blessings of

Czarinas also have a pretty hard row to

to meet all the tocial demands that are
made upon them and entertain neighbor

A few evenings ago a party of young
people who had lately returned from a
trip to the Arkansas hot springs were
visiting an old Irish ladj in Brooklyn, a
relative of most of th m. She had never
seen the great west, nnd was verv curious
in reganl to it. Tl.u young folks enlight
e.iod her with tho most entertaining
stones the) knew, nnd nt last the gentle
man who was the leader of tho excursion
ists gave a graphic account of a cj clone
which liad burst upon them as they wire
descending a rugsred nnd precipitous
mountain liack of the hot springs. He
described how they first liecame aware of
its approach by means of a low grumbling
and whistling which seemed to come from
tverj side: that presently their mules lie
came frightened aad tried to kick them
off tLcir backs, that, not succeeding, they
began to gallop headlong dow n the steep
sides of the mountain In ui.controllalile
terror, the cv clone pursuing them clo-ly
.and liccomlng more terrible every second.
nnd at last howling as if with baffled
rage when they reached a place of shelter
just in time to cscipe destruction. As
the account progressed the old lady lie
came more and more Interested. Pretty
soon horror became picturtsl In her face:
lier ej es opened startup w idc; her mouth
gaped and her excitement was intense.
She could no longer contain herstif as the
gentleman finished. Taking the last
words almost out of his ruoulh, she
shouted: "Who! didn't er shoot it? Whoi
didn't jirshoot it" New York Times.
