Ez-Concressman O'Neill of Misporwi,
who was in the city for a week or ten
days recently, has a friend in Washing
ton, a Frenchman, who has the happy
faculty of beguiling tbe hours in such
"pleasant manner that tbe Missourian
often gets to bed long after the chimes
of midnight have tolled the beginning
of another day. About 3 a. m. a few
nights ago it occurred to Mr. O'Neill
that nature had some claims upon bim
of paramount importance with those of
bis French friend, and just for a bluff
he suddenly broke off the conversation,
which took place in the lobby of the ho

f topping, and said to the clerk in a loud

several days to come.
About 15 minutes of 6 o clock a vio
lent rapping at his door aroused him
from the sweetest part of his slumbers,
and a familiar voice in the corridor was
heard to exclaim :
"Pardonnez-moi, Meester O'NcilL

that he bad heard him tell the clerk to

POINTS ABOUT A BULLFROG.
Bow Ho "Hollera" aad How He Wean His
Teeth on His Backbone. -
"Do yon know how a bullfrog bel
lows?" said ex-Magistrate Camp last
night as he spread out his legs and
joined in tbe conversation of the side
walk group in front of the Willard ho
tel, "Now, most people think that
when a bullfrog bellows he is lying
upon a big rock just blowing off. That's
not so. When a frog bellowa he is lying
fiat on the water, this way," and the
speaker spread out his broad palm. "I've
seen 'cm. You know he has a sort of
wattle under his throat. Well, he fills
tbut up about half full of water and
blows out tho air through it. You've
all put water in a bottle and then blown
into it?" There was no response, but
Mr. Camp continued : "You know how
that sounds. Well, a frog bellows in
that same way, and it sounds just like
blowing in a bottle partly filled with
water. Just this way," and the speaker
expanded his own "wattle" and gave
an imitation so natural as to alarm the
cook in the hotel kitchen.
"Do you know where a frog's teeth
are?" continued Squire Camp, enconr-
aged by tlie absence of argument.
"In his belly," somebody suggested.
"No. A frog's teeth," resumed Squire
Camp impressively, "are just about the
middle of his backbone, between his
hind and fore legs." Louisville Con

worthy cf preservation in print :
"My shop was constantly trading the
various clothes of tbe domestic and the

the every foreigner, at this time I have
made the nice handkerchief of the dif
ferent specious silk and begun to sell

A Queer Shampoo.
In one of the hotel barber shops a
small Italian boy named Joe officiates
with the whisk broom. The other day
the hotel housekeeper sent down to tbe
nronrietor of the Bhnn and asked him In
fix her up a bottle of shampoo. He fixed
it ana ioia joe to take it up to tne
"You tell her," said the barber, "to
take half a teacup of the shampoo and
put it in two teacups of water and an
ply." Joe took the shampoo and went np to
the housekeeper with it In a short time
he came back, and the barber asked,
"Give it to her all right?"
"Yes," said Joe. , . y
"With the directions?"
"Yes," said Joe again.
Half an hour later the barber noticed
the housekeeper out in the hall, looking
curiously into the shop. He walked ont
to where she was.
"Hello !" she said. "Which is it? Are
yon drunk or crazy t"
"What do you mean?" asked the bar
ber, with much dignity.
''You must be one or the other, judg

"What message did I send?"
"Joe told me you said to tell me to
make a cup of tea and put it in the bot

Philosophy of at Prince.
. "Did yon ever hear the story of how
the Prince of Wales asked the sultan to
go and see the Derby run?" asked Or
lando Jones. "Well, it was thiswise:
The race for the Derby was about to be
run, and as the sultan was then visiting
England tne prince sent one of his lords
in waiting to inquire if the eastern po
tentate would not like to go and wit
ness the classic contest. The son of the
moon and stars was seated propped np
by cushions, smoking placidly, when the
royal emissary was ushered into his
" 'His royal highness bids me ask
your majesty if it wonld please yon to
witness tne race lor tne Derby?' said he,
." 'Does his royal highness mean that
I should go and see a horse race?' in
quired the sultan blandly.
" 'He does, your highness.'
" 'Tell the prince that I cannot do
so,' replied the ruler of the faithful.
'Why should I want to go? All men
who are not fools know that some horses
are swifter than others.'" Atlanta

J C McGee, one of the best known
geologists in the government service, is
called No Point McGee by his friends
because, not having had a Christian
name given him by his Barents, when
' he went into the government service, he
was compelled to choose distinguish ine
initials. He took all the letters of tbe
alphabet, placed them in his hat and
drew two at random. These he selected
for his name, and since then he ha
signed himself J C McGee. This became
known about the government office, and

Sowing- aid Reaping.
Here is a thought from Sir Frederick
Leighton : "Whatever littleness degrade
our spirits will lessen them and drag
them down. Whatever noble fire is in
onr hearts will burn also in onr work.
Whatever purity is ours will chasten
and exalt it, for as we are so cur work
is, and what we sow in onr lives that
beyond a doubt we shall reap for good
oi ill in the strengthening or defacing
of whatever gift havefaitertoour lot"

I MtKITS OF THE RAISIN. - I -
It Has Great Kntritioaa As Well as Ua-
diclnal Properties. .
As tho grape cure has made its way
iu to modern methods of dealing with
disease hnndredd filling the German
establishments where Ibis return to na
ture is practiced many a patient who
has found himself made over by the
treatment has added to it a use of tbe
dried grape or raisin. Fruit of all sorts
is becoming more and more a part of
the regular food supply, and a growing
constituency of people announce them
selves as believers in a diet of fruit and
nuts. Leaving these extremists out of
the present question, it is certain that
health increases for "whoever substitutes
fruit, both fresh and dried, for a hirge
part of the ordinary diet in daily use.
One of our best literary workers has
found that a bunch of good raisins with
a slice of bread or a crisp cracker or two
makes a Inncn uiat is not only satisfac
tory, bnt leaves the brain clear for the
afternoon s work. Even in the davs of
our forefathers the Muscatel raisins,
called so perhaps from tbe Musca grape.
brought by tlie .Moors from their Afri
can homes into Spain, were credited
with a special recuperative force, and
known as "raysons of the sun. " They
were part of tbe equipage of a last ill
ness. Saffron water and these "raysons
of the sun" were side by side on the
neat little table, which' held also the
big Bible reserved for solemn occasions,
all three reminding tho sufferer that he
or she had done with the ordinary fare
of mortal life.
But thero need be no such somber as
sociation with the raisin of today, our
own California providing nt its best a
rich fruity raisin, sun dried, of course,
yet not so much dried as dit-tilled, all
the watery parts being driven off and
the richer qualities of the grape devel
oped iu nature's own alembic. These
raisius, with whole wheat bread, make
a genuine food, good for child as well
as man and hailed by the children with
acclamation. Tho need for sugar cn
instinct with children is met in raisins
or dates in infinitely more healthy fash
ion than in any other order cf sweet,
and the child who has full provision of
such fruits makes no demand for candy
The best California raisins are now
cheap enough to be within the means of
all, and their use is steadily increasing.
A set of yonug lawyers in Now York
have adopted fruit as a lunch, finding
that work can go on with none of the
sense of heaviness produced by the ordi
nary meal, and raisins have been intro
duced as one of the most satisfying
forms. Philadelphia Press.
They Have No Love For the White Has
aad Show It.
Kickapoo Indians are very fond of
dogs, both alive and fricaseed. Around
their tepees, or wickiups, or Queen
Amies, or whatever they call their
abodes, there are always half a dozen
wolfish dogs. An Indian dog hates a
white man as far as ho can see him
and loves an Indian as far as he can
smell bim, and that is saying a good
- When a white man driving through
the Kiekiipoo country sees a dog by tbe
roadside, his natnral impulse is to whis
tle in a friendly way, for somehow in a
wilderness of prairie or forest a dog is
a comfortable sight.
Bat tho instant yon whist lo to an In
dian dog he turns his tail and is out of
sight quicker than if he had been kicked.
An Indian never whistles to his dog
when be wants hi beast to come to
him ; ho places his tongue against his
teeth and hisses.
The colored population of Oklahoma
have almost as many dogs as the Indi
ans. Those who live in the blackjack
sand hills are dog rich. These dogs have
a deep rooted aversion for the white
man also. When an old colored cotton
planter comes to town, some of tho dogs
are sure to follow, and when tbe old
man walks up town the dog stays right
between his feet like a country dog nn
der a wagon. And whenever a white
comes within snapping distance
the dog gets busy.

A Question or Wills.
Tho making of one's will is hardly, to
be ranked among the pleasant dnties of
life. "My will," says Slender, "I nev
er made my will yet, I thank heaven. I
am not such a sickly creature, I give
heaven praise." So also Dame Quickly,
when considering Fa 1st ail's spiritual
concerns, hopes that "it isn't time to
think of making a will yet." When
David Garrick ostentatiously displayed
to the great lexicographer his pictures,
china,, rare books and furniture at
Hampton Court, the sage exclaimed,
"Ah, David, David, these are the
things that make a deathbed terrible!"
A story is told of a dying miser, by
whoso bedside sat the lawyer, receiving
instructions for the preparation of his
last will and testament "I give and
bequeath," repeated the attorney aloud,
as he commenced to write the accus
tomed formula. "No, no," interrupted
the sick man, "I will neither give nor
bqueath anything; I cannot do it"
"Well, then," suggested the man of
law. after a few moments' considera
tion, "suppose we say lend. 'I lend un
til the last day.' " "Yes, that will do
better," assented the unwilling testator.
