FRIENDLY POLITICAL RIVALS.
Governor Peck of Wisconsin Kay. a Good
Word For Bis Opponent.
Major Bill Upbiun, the Republican
nominee for governor, was the first out
sider to put in an appearance at Phil
lips the little town that has just been
obliterated by fire. Walking among tho
ruins, he met the postmaster of the place.
"What's become of your coat?'" asked
Upham. "Egad, I lost it in the fire,"
said the postmaster. "I haven't got .a
stitch of clothes except such as I have on
Bill whipped off his coat in a second.
"Tako my coat, " says he. "I've got an
other at home. Take it, and when yoa
get through with it pass it along to
souio other fellow that needs it "
- An hour later Governor Peck arrived
at Phillips, and the postmaster was tell
ing him how Bill Uphain had made him
take and wear his coat, while he (Bill)
was going around in his shirt sleeves.
"Yes, that's just like Bill," said
Peck. "He has probably given away
his Bhirt by this time, and his panta
loons, and his shoes and socks. Bill
never stands around and lets other peo
ple suCor when he can help 'em. The
chances are that by the time he gets
ready to quit this place he'll have to
walk to tho train in a barrel. "
This iucidunt illustrates very fairlv
the kindly feeling that exists between
tho two gubernatorial candidates. To
be snre, Peck has not yet beeu renom
inated, but his renoiuinatiou seems a
foregone conclusion. Chicago Record.
An infant Phenomenon.
A real infant phenomenon keeps all
the medical men and pedagogues of the
good old town of Brunswick in a 6tate
of wonder and delight Tho little son
of a local butcher, a baby just 2 years
old, can read with perfect ease anything
written or printed in German or Latin
characters. A few weeks ago three
Brunswick doctors had the baby intro
duced to them at the house of one of tho
learned gentlemen. The first thing the
little one did when brought into the
consulting room was to stand on his toes
at the table, reading out from the books
that were lying about When 18 months
old, tho baby liked books and newspa
pers better than lollipops and toys, and
whatever the parents playfully told him
he rcnieuibered, with tho result that,
at the age of 2 years, he reads with per
fect ease. Westminster Gazette.
Testing a Hone's Wind.
While talking about horses the other
day an old farmer said: "Well, I'm a
pretty good judgo of horses and can al
ways tell whether a horse is short wind
ed or not.
"Before I buy a horse, " he contin
ued, "I just borrow it for abont an hour
or so, and then I get out on some lonely
road and see what kind of stuff he is
"I first let him choose his own gait
for a couple of mile posts aud finally
give him plenty of rein, making him go
for all he is worth. All the time I just
keep my eye on his haunches, and if I
see any rotary motion there it's a sign
he's thick winded, and of course every
one knows that kind ain't much good. "

A Davenport Girl Swim the MlMlMippI at
A party of Davenport yonng peo
ple who were recently camping near
Cordova had one among them who
performed a feat, which, to all ac
counts, has never been equaled bv
any other young lady in the three
cities. She swam across the Missis
sippi at that point, and the water is
as deep and the current as rapid and
dangerous in places as it is anywhere
opposite the city here. She sur
prised every one of her companions,
for none of them believed that she
would dare undertake such a per
formance. They did not believe that
she had the courage to do it.
Always an Expert Swimmer.
For years she has taken quite an
interest in aquatic sports, and has
always been regarded as an expert
swimmer by the young lady friends
who every summer form the partv
with which she goes on an outing.
"I made np my mind I would
swim that river," she said to a friend,
"and I did it."
The Davis Company has completed
its labors of boring for rock on the
public building site, at the corner of
Sixteenth street and Second avenue.
Eight holes were bored, one at each
corner and the other four at inter
mediate points. Seven of the holes
produced rock at a depth of between
10 and 11 feet, but the hole bored
on the southeast corner did not pro
duce any rock until it was sunk 21
feet below the surface. At a depth
of about 11 feet gravel was struck,
and after going through this for
about four feet fire clay of the hard
est kind was found for a depth of
fullv six feet. It is the opinion of
Mr. Davis that it is not an impossi
ble matter to build upon the tire clay
as it is nearly as hard as the rock.
The Kentucky Kind of V omaa.
Mrs. W. E. McPhearson, wife of our
town marshal, was passing the skirt of
a wood a few days ago and was con
fronted by a rattlesnake immediately in
her pathway. His snukeship instinctive
ly gave the usual signal warning with
his rattles, coiled himself up and ele
vated his head preparatory to battle.
The brave little woman, instead of
screaming like a wildcat and fainting
away, as many women do when they
see a mouse on the floor, seized the first
weapon she oonld lay her hands on and
opened the battle and soon dispatched
the brute. She then deliberately took
out her pocketknife, and as dexterously
as a skilled h miter would skin a doer
took off his hide and brought it home
with her and stuffed it with bran, and
now has it on exhibition at her resi
dence. The snake was of tho yellow spe
cies, measured nearly 5 feet in length
and had nine rattles aud a button. Ua
