Recently a prominent democratic
leader who attended the convention
at Chicago told aa interesting store
at the Dee Moines democratic
headquarters illustrative of the
character of Mr. Bryan. Those
who attended the convention
will remember, says the Leader, that
on the night when the cominating
speeches were concluded there wae a
harried coneultat on of the friends
of Mr. Bland and the determination
was reached that a motion to adjourn
should be put and carried. It was
apparent to Senator Jones. Gov,
Stone and several distinguished gen
tinmen favoring the nomination of
the Missouri candidate that the nom
nation of Mr. Bryan was almost cer
tain, and tots adjournment was
deemed essential in order to gather
the somewhat shattered forces to
gether and re-establish the broken
lines eaued by the rapidly growing
sentiment tor tne brilliant young
A personal friend of Mr. Bryan's,
learning the intention cl Mr. Jones
to move an amendment, quickly
avagat out Mr. Bryaa and urged him
to use his influence to prevent this
action, assuring him that f he did so
tot aomlaatloa wonld ba assured
that aight. Thea came the response
which is made public for the first
ume in tnts connection, no,
said Mr. Bryan, "if what we may be

country that it should not be done at

related the incident, shows the

that moment the nomination for the
presidency within his grasp and de
clined to do anything that would
look as if he were attempting to
seize the prize after which great men
have, with laudable ambitiuo. strug
gled in Tain. When his action be
came known to the bland men they
saw in the man whom they then
knew to be their candidate such a
strong character that it lessened the
sting of defeat and raised Mr. Bryan
to the topmost notch in the estima

Blr Robert Ball Speculates t'pon the Fea

Conceive that a traveler were endow
ed with some means of soaring aloft for
miles and thousands of miles, still up
and up, until ut length be had attained
the awfnl height of nearly 250,000
miles above the ground, suggests Sir
Robert Ball iu his ' 'Story of the Heav
ens. " Ulauciiig down at the surface of
that earth, which is at sncu a stupen
dous depth beneath, he would be able to
see a wonderful birdseye view.
He would lose, no doubt, the details
of towns and villages. The features in
such a landscape would be whole conti
nents and whole oceans, in so far as the
openings between the clouds would per
mit the earth's surface to be exposed.
At this stupendous elevation he could
try one of the most interesting experi
ments that was ever iu the power of a
philosopher. He could tent whether the
earth's attraction was felt ut such a
height, and he could measure the
amount of that attraction. Tukc for the
experiment a cork, a marble, or any
other object, large or small. Hold it be

knows what would happen in such a

Isaae Newton to tell what would hap

We ure on the point of exclaiming that
we must have gone lieyond the earth's
attraction, and that Newton is wrong,
when our attention is arrested. The
marblo is beginning to move, so slowly
that at first we huve to watch it closely.
But the pace gradually improves, so
that the attraction is beyond all doubt,
until gradually acquiring more and
more velocity the marble speeds on its

and the youujr mother was absent miud

Just then baby began to gag and grow
black in the face. And not only black,
but all about her little mouth were re
markable variegations in shades of pink.
The transfer ticket had returned to tho
pulp from which it was made. The
mother scooped out what was left of it
from baby's mouth, thumped tho little
one's back to aid it in recovering its
breath and then turned a very red face
toward the conductor in mute inquiry
as to what was to be done.
The conductor said never a word. He
merely held out his hand.

Tan Spots Over Dogs' Eves.
These spots aro believed to afford an
example of protective markings perpet
uated by natural selection. They seem
to have been acquired at a comparative
ly rvevut period, when the dog had be
come seuiidouiesticated. The original
dog was red aud did not possess these
spots. When he tlcpt. he hid himself
from possible enemies but this the
seiuidouiestH-ated dog con Id not always
do Now, when the color changed by
domestication aud selected breeding,
aud dogs became pied and black, those
which had spots over their eyes would
look when asleep as though their eyes
were opeu aud still on watch. There
fore their enemies would be deceived,
aud they wonld be less liable to be kill
ed during sleep thau dogs which had
no ench spots. Thus they survived and
transmitted their peculiarity to their
offspring. These spots are supposed to
be the most, if not the only, perma
nent markings on dogs. San Francisco
Drawing Room Weaving.
A new occupation and fashion among
English women is that of drawing room
weaving upon light house looms. Upon
these looms hand woven table linen and
towels, with aud without borders, art
made. Though the world is not suffer
ing for those hand woven products, they
are thought by some to have an artistic
value that machine woven fabrics have
not, and as we copy English fashions

from which their grandmothers were
