I Ii&to in my miad display of firo-
wot'a given by myself vrben 12 yean of
uso or lesd. Dr. Adam Norris, my
acboolmastt3r in those days, knowinir
that I waa a past master in chemistry
and an adopt at ttao mannf actnrc of col
ored fire, directed ma to "organize an
entertainment. The old ccntlcman is
gone now where there may "or may not
be fireworks, bnt to his dying day he
never nppreciat"d my efforts on his bo
half. It was proposed to illnminate tho
plsyronnds with colored fires nnd bin-
tciTC, to invite the fiarents of tho SO
scholars and to rognlo them after the
diMi.tay with cake nnd wine I mean,
of oourf tho parents. '
I was let oft my evening lessons for
a week and allowed tho ran of the
school laboratory. There I reveled in
preparations. Not content with mere
red. Moo and yellow fires, I arranod
Catht rino wheels and Roman candles
and rockets. I felt tho instinct of a
urot K ana a ram nsinc in mo. I even
askrd Dr. Korris for additional monev.
telling him that I had an idea for a
splendid novelty. lie trusted me, tak
ing the word of onr " chemistry master
that J knew what I was doing. My
novelty, which I kept as a grand sur
prise, consisted of a "set piece," with
tho words: "God blew Dr. Adam Nor
This lienign wish wonld come out in

stand their hnsincss, bat tho first Cath
erine i heel went aronnd several times
and appeared to le well liked. ' Owing
to some unfortunate miscalculation with
tho materials, my rockets wonld not
soar. Tho spirit was willing; the
chemical compound was weak. So they
toro nbout the ground, like snakes, and
hissed in among the company, and one
let off pnrplo stars under the petticoat
of a Luly. A solitary rocket really went
np a considerable distance, and the
stick fell through the hothouso of a
man nest door, who had always been
unfriendly toward tho school. I pass by
the hot nir balloon. It soared all
right, but I forgot to no on tho mag
nesium light, so nobody realized what
a tine thing was being done. The Ro
man c.indles imsscd off without adverse
continent, and then I lighted the "set

Nobody has ever credited the storv.
though I have told it to thousands. The
facts, however,' nro these: Owing to
unforeseen circumstances, the first two
words of tho display those asking God
to bless our good master did not light
at ell: tho next word, Doctor," fell off
altogether; tho 'A"iu Adam also fail
ed, and tuo whole of our preceptor s
surname, excepting the .initial letter,
blew up. What was the result? W by.
against the black night, raised on sup
ports some 20 feet aliove the heads of
the bewildered assembly, there blared
forth n solitary colossiil "Dam 3.
It burned red. and then in a silence
that conld bo felt tnrned green. The
Damn" and I turned green together.
That ended the entertainment. People
never tielieve this story. Indeed at so
great a distance of time I should be in
clined to doubt it myself, but I cannot
forget the subsequent intxTview with my
dear old master in his study. Wo had a
little private display of fireworks all to
onrselves. Thus do most improbable
effects result from remote causes. The
Chinese by inventing fireworks were do
ing a thing which, after long genera
tions of time, rendered it impossible for
mo to sit down with any comfort for a

Xot the least gratifying feature of the
election was the extension of the suffrage
to the women of Colorado. Jot to ex
ceed half a dozen counties voted down
the equal rights proposition, and in most
counties the majority in its favor was
very snbstantiu. It was not a matter
of good nature or gallantry on the part
of the male voters of the state to bring
aliout this result, but a matter of simple
right and justice. Denver Tunes.
