A Hornless Hack.
A curious and exceedingly unusual
freak is rcportrd by a doer hnntcr to
Forest and Stream. The hunter was np
iu Wexford rounty, Mich., nnd got on
a deer trail tlint hud hoof marks plainly
made by a buck. Almost all hunters of
deer can tell a bnek from a doe track.
After trailing the deer and getting
within a rod of it the buck leaped ont
of a clump of brnph and got knoeked
down with a bullet through the head.
The deer did not have any horns, al
though a 2 -year-old and weighing 150

"In a house that I went into one
night iu the country," said the retired
burglar, "I saw when I got up on the
second floor a light coming out into the
hall from an open door. When I got a
look into that door, I saw a man all
dressed standing leaning over a bed. I
couldn't see his face, but I con Id see
anxiety on the back of his head. Lying
in the bed was a child, thin and white
and still, bnt awake and looking np at
its father. Backing ont of the door, I
ticked my lamp against the door jamb.
The man looked up. - He. wasn't scared.
I doubt if be would-have been anyway,
bnt he was thinking of something else
" 'Come in,' he fay?, and I went in.
"The child looked at me as I walked
across the floor, -and then looked np
again at its father, saying nothing, but
just lying there and looking np.
"How the man camo to be fixed in
that way, all alone with that child, I
could not even guess. Wife jnst died
maybe, bnt there he was and thinking
of nothing else in the world, and the
child was the pitifullest looking little
child I ever fuw.
"What the man wanted was to have
me go for the doctor. He told me- his
name, and the doctor's name, and where
he lived, and I went. It was late, yon
understand, bat I whanged away on the
doctor's door till I heard him open his
window. I told him what was wanted.
" 'All right,' ho says, and I thought

rKr.siooT Clsvei.asu received a
grind ovation In the democratic na
tional convention at Chicago yester
day. The very mention ot his name
was the signal for outbursts of en
thusiasm which swept the vast as
seniblsgo from one side of the great
coliseum to the other. The place
which the president holds deep in
thn heart of every loyal democrat is
one that time or incident will not
clTiice. His name is the svnonym
fr sturdy, honest unflinching de
mocracy. Wirii such men as Senators Hill
and Haute! before the convention for
the temporary chairmannhip the na
tional democracy could not have
made a mistake, as tar as the em
inent titness of the man was con
cerned, in the selection of its presid
ing officer during organization. The
only question was on the method,
whether the party should adopt the
time honored precedent and uphold
its representative national commit
tee or accept the minority report ot
that committee. The delegates chose
the latter ronre.
la 173 the assessed valuation of
property in Illinois was ll.35o.401.
317, while in 195 it amounted to
only 33.1x8,467. If the assessed
valne had been kept at a fair cash
value the assessed vslue la 1895 would
have been at least 16.000.000,000.
So about 15.170.000,000 of property
is now escaping taxation, four-tifths
of which amount beiong to corporate
and individual wealth. The out-'t-nnie
