Neailv all the members of congress
keep crap-books. Kven Mark Hanna
has a full set of srll those picture of
himself. The :te.adiiitii:ns to his book
are quite different from the earlier
pages. Congressman Loud, who ap
parently is as oblivious to all that is
said .f him as anybody, keeps a com
plete scrap-book.' For the period of
time it covers, the largest scrap-book
is one kept by Senator Heveridge's
private secretary. It has already
reached two large volumes, number
ing ''i pages each, and taking three
solid newspaper columns to the page.
Jlcveridge, in pi1e of his youth and

The Age of Birds.
.Ora V. Knig-ht, of ' Bangor, former
president of the Maine Ornithological
.'society, sajs it is extremely difficult
to tel! the age which birds live. It
x is hard to keep track of individual
birds from year to year in the wild
' state and those in captivity probably
do not ' iivei their 'natural length of
years.. One sea gull, known as Gull
. Dick to th keepers of the Brenton
. Reef lightship, wa.? observed in that
vicinity -for 24 years. This bird was
i very tame, and had certain peculiari
1 ies by which it could be positively
'.identified. There is no telling how
cld the bird was when it was first ob
served, so nothing more than its min
imum age can be stated with entire
accuracy. It tsf quite probable that
1he gull was over 30 years old when
;t died. Crows and ravens are popu
larly supposed to live from SO to 100
years, but there is no Convincing evi
, iience that this is true, and good au-
'Ihoriiies on ornithology doubt it. It
' is: thought likely that eagles and the
larger, hawks live to be. SO .years old,
.:' andf perhaps more. Again, there, is
no proof that tlijs is true. Mr. Knight
thinks that the sparrows, warblers
and other small birds live from six to
10 years, but confesses that this is
nothing more than, a rough estimate.
He has. observed some loggerhead
thrikes, or butcher birds, which to
his knowledge have nested in the
same tree for periods varying from
sJx to 10 vears, but he calls attention
to the fact that he did not know how
old thev were when he first began to
observe them. He has had some pine
grosbecks in captivity which lived
from four to seven years, but their
age was not known when they were
captured out of doors in the winter.
The Illinois Orphans' Home.
The future of the Illinois soldiers
i-rphans home at Normal is discuss
ed by Superintendent McCauley in
his biennial report just submitted to
the governor. The number of in
mates of the home is' steadily de
creasing, and the superintendent
savs thai in but a lew yejAs it will
have outlived its career as a. home
solely for the offspring of old sol
diers. The buildings and other property
now represent an investment of near
ly $:J00,000, and the institution is well
equipped for the purposes of a chil
dren's home. Mr. McCauley will ask
the legislature for -an appropriation
of $25,000 to build five new cottages,
and will recommend that the scope -of
the institution be enlarged, and that
it be made an industrial school for
all the indigent and abandoned chil
dren of the state. The recommenda
tion is one that deserves the careful
consideration of the legislature.
Johnson anil the Presidency.
The outcome of the Ohio demo
cratic convention brings Tom L.
lohnsou. of Cleveland, more promi
nently to the front than ever as a
candidate for the democratic presi
dential nomination two vears hence.
Mr. Johnson is not only a consistent
ieader in the crusade for the reforms
which are in great st need and de
mand by the eople a this time, but
in practice as well as in" words'iie has
lever failed to put himself on the
side of fairness and justice in all
measures affecting the people as a
whole. He is strong with his own
party, having the indorsement and
support of all elements of it, and.
standing upon a conservative demo
cratic platform built upon the issues
that the force of circumstances and
the trend of events have brought so
conspicuously to the front, would
make noi only a formidable, but it is
believed, successful candidate.
The President Double.
If the president had been seeking a
double of himself, he could not have
onie more closely to the mark than
in the man selected for secretary of
the navy, and while the resemblance
may be very striking, there is no
more possibility of his being taken
for the executive than there is of suc
cess in palming off a substitute reme
dy for Hosfetter's Stomach Bitters.
It has become so well known as a
cure for headache, nervousness, indi
gestion, dyspepsia, constipation and
malaria that many unscrupulous
dealers will refill the bottles with a
bogus article and offer it as the genu
ine. Beware of such counterfeits.
The genuine Hosfetter's Bitters has
their private, stamp unbroken over
the neck of each bottle. Don't fail
to trv it.
Beware of the Knife.

DAILY SHORT STORY
Successor to the Title
tcopyrignt, ioo;, by o. u. iovtis.j
The Earl of Burleigh was dead, and
Uie earl's only son and successor was
a wanderer on the face of the earth
and had not been heard of for five
One day a sloop arrived with one
man on her of the name of Burch, who
said that he and his partner had taken
a man of the name of Henderson. to
one of the New Guinea islands, where
they left him to live a Crusoe life. Re
turning, nil on the sloop had died ex
cept Burch. ly
When Biirch's story was made
known, it was believed that young
Henderson must be the Lord of Bur
leigh, but by the time at Melbourne so
licitor had been empowered to send out
a searching expedition a full year had
elapsed. There was a wait to llnd the
right sort of craft and another for the
bad weather season to pass, and when
the search was finally entered upon
Henderson had been playing Robinson
Crusoe for over two years. As I was
mate of the craft I am speaking by the
card in giving you all these particulars.
You will figure that it was a very
easy thing to steer for the Coral sea
and have Burch point out the island
on which Henderson had taken up' his
abode, but we found difficulties from
the" very outset, Henderson had a
chart of the Coral sea, but he had not
allowed Burch to inspect it. The latter
therefore could not say what islands
had first been sighted. He could not
be certain of the coitrse steered after
ward. Our only way was to visit and
search every one unless we happened
to fall in with natives or a trader who
could give us definite information.
When we had finished with tho I.ou
isiade archipelago, we steered to the
northeast and picked up island after
island without scoring a poiut. At the
Woodlark group, however, we came
across a trading schooner which gave
us a bit of information. Her captain
reported that he had attempted to laud
on a small island about sixty miles to
the east to replenish his water casks,
but had been fired upon by some one
concealed in the bushes and driven off.
That was eighteen months previously.
Ills description of the island tallied
pretty well with Burch's, and we at
once set out to search. One day in
searching an island which Burch was
almost sure was the one Henderson
had been left 041 I rau across an old
camp which had previously been occu
pied by several men for some days or
weeks. They bad built rude shelters,
cut down many small trees for fire
wood, and there were many relics of
their stay. I fouud some things which
at once added a very serious face to
our further search. 1 picked up three
books which had doubtless been oflbe
number carried oiit by Henderson and
also found some seeds, three or four
pieces of crockery and a hand mirror.
As soon as Burch had landed he was
sure ho had never set 'fbot lh'iliat place
before. We explored the island from
side to side and from end to end, and
it was found to be anything but the
one the sailor had lived on for a week
or ten days.
We now feared the worst. On all the
inhabited islands of the Coral sea is a
class men called "beach combers."
They are sailors, traders, wreckers,
thieves and worse. .If these men had
discovered Henderson "on his island
home, they would not hesitate at mur
der in order to secure his possessions.
The relies found in the old camp
seemed to prove robbery at least. Hen
derson bad no boat and could not leave
his island. If any one had visited him,
he would not have presented them with
his Itooks, as the uncut leaves proved
he had not yet perused them himself.
It was almost without hope that we
continued the search.
On the fourth day after we struck
the right island at last. The schooner
was obliged to cast auehor about half a
mile off the beach, and I then went
ashore With the men. A heavy growth
of trees and bushes came right down to
high water mark. We set out to cross
to the south side, and we had made our
way for about half a mile when we
caught sight of a goat and also heard a
rooster crow. A few minutes later a
dog barked, and then we knew for cer
tain the hiding place of the missing
heir. The dog presently appeared to
view, but he looked wild and half
starved, and with all our coaxing we
could not bring him nearer.
We first moved down to the house. It
contained only one room, and the floor
was littered with books, bottles, seeds
and various other things. Boxes had
been broken open and their contents
emptied, but amid all the confusion it
could be seen that nothing of real val
ue was left. In and about the door was
a score of bnllet holes.
"We shall ftnd it down here," said
the captain as he pointed to the rocks,
and we followed him. The dog made a
great fuss as we drew near, and we
knew why. He was guarding tho body
of his master. No; it was not a dead
body, but rather a skeleton.
Twenty rods to the south, in the edga
of a thicket, we found two more skele
tons. These men belonged to the party
making the attack. How long he had
stood them off no one could say, but
he had made a good fight of it before
being struck down.
When we left the Island, we took
with us the skeleton and everything
bearing on the case. We then spent six
weeks cruising about in search of n
clew to the murderers. We ran acres:
a trader who had seen six beach comb
ers In a craft in the neighborhood of
the island. We found a native wit'
one of Henderson's guns, which be had
bought of a white man. We found
men -who had seen the other dog. We
found some of the books and a medi
cine chest, but we faKed to lay hands
on the guilty parties, tnd to this day
they have gone unpunished for that
dastardly, crime. M. QUAD. .
