An evidence of the depths to which
an editor can go under stress of po
litical circumstances is shown in an
editorial squib in this morning's
Union to the effect that Bryan might
get even with those students by
sending his sons to Yale." So far
the Union has been the only paper oo
either side in this campaign to lower
itself to mch unbecoming person
alities. It is a happy thought to
know that the time has come when
a candidate for president of the
United States can pass through a
canvass without having his family
assailed and this has been the case
up to the present time this year,
with the miserable exception of the
Union. It is hardly necessarv to make
any reply to such a rowdyWh remark,
but it mir ha ssiil that nn inn rr Wil

his intellect sharpened by associates
of the kind who disgraced themselves

Iu the fourteenth century windows

I was thinking the forest held no
wolves when an enormous one came
'looping" along iu an open space
straight to my neighbor, stationed 50
yards to my left. When well within
shot, lie fired both barrels. "Well, that
fellow is a duffer," thought I, as the
brute, unharmed, merely changed bis
course aud came along parallel with me
at 30 yards' distance. When he was
abreast of me. I fired, but, alas for my
conceit, lie did not even swerve a foot.
but continued on, yet I am sure nearly
every pellet or both barrels struck him.

had received the charges of a dozen
The amount of shot which wolves
will carry away is wonderful. A tough
old wolf will sometimes receive the fire
of the whole line of sportsmen and es
cape, yet a single lucky shot may bring
one down at 60 yards. I should explain
that wolves in these drives prefer to
trust to the chance of bad shots and
their own thick skins rather than to the
hounds aud beaters' sticks, for when
fired at they do not double back, but in
variably make for the sides of the wood.

the beaters came up to us, we had an
other long, cold wait, while they went
round and entered the wood at the net

more than ordinary interest is the

company at the Bonis opera house

of Otis Skinner is at the present time
almost as well known among the
lovers of the drama as tbe name of
the president of tbe United States
among politicians. He ia an actor of
great fores aod intens'tv. and ha
become a very great lavorite with
the theatre gniug public, for hi
work is most artistie and he can al
ways be relied upoa to give an even
performance, free from any of tbe
stage trickery so often seen even in
the work of some of onr best actors
and actresses. K r be always reaches

and his climaxes bv purely legiti

the so called legitimate drama, but
memoes of bis own. which he ba
thought out for himself. His sup

and among its numbers are some of
the best known people in the theatri
eel profession. Otis Skinner will
present two of the best known of
