AVith an enormous popcorn crop
over in luwa, will those dilatory Iowa
.vouns men pop any sooner? asks the
Sit. Louis Post-Dispatch.
The Philadelphia Record says the
objections to the elevation of ex-Surgeon
Wood to the highest rank but
one in the army are two-fold: That
the confirmation of this act of favor
itism would produce demoralization in
the corps :f officers, and that it would
result in placing a man of practically
no military experience in a position to
become within a very few years hence
the general in command.
An old friend .-aid to Senator Teller
the other day: "Don't you feel odd to
be called a democrat V" The Colorado
inuu replied: "Not so odd as you might
think. It was with the democratic
party that I affiliated when a young
man before I left iitiativc place. Al-leg-heny

"There is a good deal of unhappiness
connected with Wall street," said
.lames R. Keene. "but there's a fascin
ation abotit stocks that isn't known
to any other line of business. Wall
street invariably draws a man back,
no matter what his failures may have
been.- If a dry goods merchant goes
under. Ioes every cent he has anil
finds that he is completely wound up.
no one sees him in the dry goods dis
trict until he has tried a good many
times toget on his feet in other ways.
Then lie may go back. It is the same
with other branches of trade. But
when a man gets heavily hit down
around the street he can be found at
the old stand until he leaves the
world for good."
The republican hope of making a
high moral issue out of the recent
election in Xew York City has gone
glimmering and their-evil prophecies
before election will turn out to be
false. Mayor-elect McClellan announc
es in the most emphatic manner that
there will be no gambling in New
York during his term of office. He
further says that the city will not be
a "wide open one," but on the con
trary law and order will be observed
in t lie strictest sense. This announce
ment has set at rest a lot of idle talk
about New York throwing open its
doors to vice as soon as the demo
cratic candidate took the oath" of of
fice. Democrats may not make as
many Pharisaical professions as re
publicans, but they are more law
abiding. Xew York under McClellan
will compare favorably with any re
publican governed city in the country.
Most marvelous is the recent achieve
ment of the famous young American
chess player. Pi lis bury, in carrying on
more than twenty games of "blind
fold chess" simultaneously. Seated
where he could not see any of the
boards. Pillsbury succeeded in win
ning nearly all the games against pro
ficient players. To do this he had to
keep in memory the problem present
ed by each board during a long series
of moves. He had to know the loca
tion of several hundred chessmen
scattered over more than a score of
tables and to keep track of successive
changes of location on each board.
These facts he had to keep in mind
for a period of several hours, to say
nothing of the additional mental
strain of studying each adversary's
attack and thinking out a way of de
feating it. This was a feat of mental
How far might a man not go in any
line of effort by applying himself with
equal persistence to the development
of the priceless faculty of concentra
tion? The Williams Boom.
Illinois democracy, if all indications
do not fail, has a candidate for the
democratic presidential nomination in
the person of Congressman J. II. Wil
liams. No man, in southern Illinois is
better known than Mr. Williams, and.
if the democracy of the state can
unite, if Cook county and the country
can settle their differences and get
together, no democrat lias a better
chance to carry the state than he.
A solid and enthusiastic delegation
from Illinois, also, would carry weight
in the onventicn. It must be admit
ted, however, that Congressman Wil
liams is not a public character outside
In his Illinois .career is one achieve
ment which tends to sbow that he
may possess the qualifications of lead

All that the Republic says of Con

true, except that he is a much more

paper seems to realize.
NOVEL VACATION DEVICE.
How Two Summer Girla Paid Se
The vacation device of two Los An
geles (Cal.) girls who desired a summer
outing that would prove both pleasant
and profitable will apieal to many par
ents, says the Chicago Inter Ocean.
These young women established them
selves on the beach of a popular Pacific
coast seaside resort, erected a large
tent and furnished it with rugs, pil
lows, hammocks, cushions, blankets,
toys, tin pails, hoes, sand spades, build
ing blocks, etc. Then they hung out a
sign reading: "Day Nursery. Check
Your Babies Here. Best of Care. Mod
At first it looked as if the experi
ment might not prove successful, but
nfter one or two mothers, more daring
than the average, had given the nursery
a trial others followed, and in a little
while the girls were compelled to em
ploy assistant caretakers. Parents go
ing on a sail checked their whole fam
ily, mothers ready for the morning dip
deposited the baby, fathers tired of an
swering "What for?" took their young
sters to the tent, had tbeni entered, re
ceived brass checks to correspond with
those around the necks of their young
sters and began to enjoy life once
more; young aunts going fishing took
little nieces and nephews to the Ixs
Angeles girls, and the latter in every
Instance guaranteed to watch over
their charges and kept their promise.
"We are doing more business than
the snake charmer," said one of them.
"We are not only making our expenses,
but will have a big surplus at the end
of the season. We shall stay as long as
the crowds do. Some of the same chil

their speech and give them a constant
change of occupation so that they do

DAILY SHORT STORY
Castor and Pollux.
In referring to the twins their fellow
students spoke of them as gemini (the
Latin for twins) and .called them Cas
tor and Pollux. They were both on the
university football team and were con
sidered the best amateur players in
New England. I don't propose to give
away their identity here, so I shall
designate them by their college sobri
quets. They were both flaxen haired.
blue eyed giants. Every one knows
that the affection between twins is re
markable, and these two were no ex
ception to the rule. Indeed when after
being graduated Castor went west to
seek his fortune, Pollux remaining at
the university to take a post graduate
course, the separation very nearly
broke the brothers down. Everybody
wondered how they dared strike out in
Tollux was wanted on the university
team, but it was some time before he
consented to go on. He could not bear
the thought of playing without his
brother. However, he consented at
last, and that made his team the stron
gest college team in the country for
that year. I'm not going to even locate
it bv Kiving the college teams that
fought the champion game that year.
I'll call them A. and B. I can only as
sert what everybody knew happened.
As to the details of the game. I give
them from the account given me by a
member of the A. team. I was not
When the A. team got into the tally
ho to drive to the grounds it was dis
covered that Pollux was missing. The
captain cursed and thundered, making
tlr air hot with his remarks, but it
didn't do any good. Pollux did not ap
pear. Some one suggested that he
might have gone direct to the grounds,
and the cairtain Anally decided to drive
on, hoping to find him there. But he
When the team lined up Pollux was
still wanting. A substitute was in his
place and the game about to com
mence. There was a fence about twen
ty feet high around the Inclosure, and
at the calling of the game an immense
figure in football garb appeared on
its top with one leg over. Then it
jumped down and walked toward the
eridiron. A shout arose, "Pollux to
the rescue!" as the figure strode on
and took his position in the line. His
captain went up to him and asked for
an explanation, but the big fellow mo
tioned him to proceed with the game.
By this time the betting was a good
deal mixed, for now that the missing
man had come no one knew whether
he was going to do great things or lit
tle things. He played as he had been
used to playing, though not exertin
himself as much as usual, except at
critical moments. At such times he
would contrive to secure the ball and
on several occasions got it to goal.
There was nothing brilliant about the
way he did it. The singular feature
was that no oue could explain how he
did It. The men would le massed, the
B. men on the ball. Then suddenly
Pollux would lie found to have got It
and trying to get through the guards
with it. When there was an open
same and everybody could see what
was going on he did nothing. At tl
end he brought his college in for two
Itoints ahead, and the champion game
You may say there was nothing re
markable about this. Well, there
wasn't. When the game was finished
the A. captain turned to thank Pollux
for his work and didn't see him.
"Where's Pollux?" he asked.
"Why, he was here a moment ago.
He can't have gone in."
"He must have gone in. If he thinks
he can bother me as he did today with
out an explanation he's mistaken."
The captain went inside, where sev
eral of the team had already arrived,
and, not seeing the man he looked for,
"Has Pollux been here?"
"No." said a substitute. "And I've
been here half an hour."
Nor was there a person on the field
who had seen Pollux leave It.
"Singular," said his captain. "He
came over the fence how he got up
there I can't Imagine and now he's
When the captain of the A.'s went
to his hotel the clerk handed him a
telegram. It was from Pollux and
read : i
"Can't play today."
"Well," remarked the captain. "I'm
glad he got there after all. We'd have
been 'gone up without him."
The rest of the story that is, how it
came out, or, rather, how It didn't come
out, for Pollux declared that any
friend of his who spoke of it would
be his friend no longer is rather misty?
Pollux was sweet on a girl and the
day before the game came off he
traveled a hundred miles to see her.
She was a Delilah and purposely kept
him till after the only train on which
he could reach the athletic grounds in
time had gone. Pollux, filled with
shame at his treatment of his fellows,
sent the message to his captain, took
the next train for college and on ar
rival went to his rooms. There he
found a telegram announcing the
death of his brother.
The story given out was that Pollux
thought he would not be able to play,
but reached the grounds in time. I
was an A. student myself, roomed
next to Pollnx and talked with him in
his own rooms about his brother's sud
den death while the game was going
on. He has never to this day had a
doubt that Castor dying at the time
the game was called appeared in the
spirit to prevent the necessity of an ex
planation as to his brother's nonap
pearance. But that part of the story Is
known only to me.
