Lay ton. who has been married five
times is to be married again, this time
to a man by the name of Love. Three
of Mrs. Layton's marriages were to
a man by the name of Coffin and an
exchange suggests that the chances
are that Mr. Ive will live long enough
to wish that Grar-e had stuck to the
"coffin" and that it contained a real
plate on the lid inscribed '"Love."
Mr. Mefoalf. secretary of commerce
and labor, holds that the immigration
problem is the most serious that faces
the country, its chief difficulty being
the question of distribution. A few
days ago he received a letter from
Louisiana saying that tate alone can
give employment to loo.Oou workers
in the field. The western portion of
the Mississippi valley stands in equal
need, but concent ration in the cities
goes steadily on. He thinks it is time
for congress to take action.
Chauncey Iepew once dined with
three- ladies in a New York restaurant.
He was so entertaining that one of the
ladies plucked up courage and. during
dessert, leaned over and tapped the
diplomat on the arm and with an af
fectation of shyness said: "Mr. Uepew
let us pretend that you are the shep
herd Paris. I am Minerva. Mrs. Blank
is Venus ajid Miss Blank is Juno.
Now. you must give this golden aji
ple to the fairest.'" So saying she
handed him an orange. Depew did not
wait an instant, but. turning iu his
chair, called the waiter. 'Waiter,'' he
said, "briug me two more oranges."
The Successor to Col. Marsh.
Throughout this congressional dis
trict the papers ar discussing the
questioii of the successor to Col.
Marsh. The news of the Moliue move
iu behalf of V. G. Allen has apparently
not reached the lower end yet. but over
in the adjoining district they are re
flect inir the ideas of that section
throueh the columns of the Ouincy pa
pers. The Herald of that city in its
issue of last evening had the follow
ing editorial reference to the situation.
"The Kovernor will call a special
election this fall for the purpose of
filling the congressional vacancy made
hv the death of Col. Marsh. It is really
a full term, as the 59th congress, which
was elected last November, has not
yet organized. Hancock county repub
licans for sentimental reasons are urg
iner that the candidate to complete
Marsh's term should come from liis
own county and the name of Senator
O. V. Berrv of Carthage. Capt. J. H
Finley of Warsaw. J. Mack Sholl and
Charles DeHart of Carthage have been
suggested. But Col. Marsh had served
in congress many terms and republi
cans in other counties declare that
Hancock county has had all the politi
cal honors the is entitled to for some
time to come.

Is likelv to be heard from with Charles
J. Searle of Rock Island, or James Mc-
Kinnev of Aledo. There is no doubt
hut that IJeut. Gov. Sherman of Ma
ramh could have the nomination if he
wanted it. but the judge apparently
prefers state to national politics. War

there is liable to be a fight for the
Tl Ancestral noose of Bonaparte.
The grandfather of Charles J. Bona
parte, who it is said will succeed Paul
Morton as secretary of the navy, was
born July T. 1805. just about 10 years
ago. The grandfather's father, Jerome
Bonaparte, was the brother of Napole
on Bonaparte, and was sent on a mis
sion to San Domingo by the emperor in
1803. which was unsuccessful and not
being able to return to France, on ac
count of the vigilance of the British
ships, he finally succeeded in reaching
New Orleans, which was then French
territory. Subsequently he met and
married in Baltimore Elizabeth Patter
son, the daughter of a wealthy Balti
more merchant. The couple after re
maining in this country a year went to
France in 1805.
Napoleon refused to accept her as
the wife of his brother and forced Je
rome to discard her and marry the
Princess of Wurtemburg. Napoleon
refused to permit the Baltimore wife
to remain in France or on the conti
nent and she was compelled to go to
England where she gave birth to a son.
The mother with her son return
ed to the United States where the
son was educated and graduated
from Harvard. Soon after he married
a Miss Williams of Roxbury, Mass. The
second ou of this union, born in 151.
is Charles J. Bonaparte, the proposed
secretary' of the navy.
It is refreshing to note the only Bon
aparte that has a name iu the history
of present events is the family of the
Bonaparte that married inio au Ameri
can family and this in spite of the fact
that Napoleon forced the discarding of
the American wife l'JO years ago. The
rejection of the great grandmother was
no doubt a sad blow to her and yet
that affliction saved the family for use
in a free land under a free flag.

Triumphs of Modern Surgery.
Wonderful things are done for the
human body by surgery. Organs are
taken out and scraped and polished
and put back, or they may be removed
entirely; bones are spliced: pipes take
the place of diseased sections of veins;
antiseptic dressings are applied to
wounds, bruises, burns and like injur
les before inflammation sets in. which
causes them to heal without matura
tion and in one-third the time required
by the old treatment. Chamberlain's
Pain Balm acts on this same principle.
It is an antiseptic and when applied
to such injuries, causes them to heal
very quickly. It also allays' the pain
and soreness. Keep a bottle of Pain
Balm in your home and it will save
you time and money, not to mention
the inconvenience and suffering which
such injuries entail. For sale by all
DAILY SHORT STORY
AN IRISH TRAMP.
The Scotch lakes iu the month of
June are very pleasant touring ground.
Ill order to have plenty of time to en
Joy this interesting region I decided to
spend the whole month of roses in a
walking trip iu what is called the Ttos
?ach. I ran across a yoifTTg English
man uauied Mars tun, who was amusing
himself in much the same way as 1,
and we agreed to tramp together. Mar
it on was a thorough Briton and with
all a Briton's respect for rank. He was
not noble himself, but professed to
know many of the nobility.
We were resting one day on the
banks of IXK-h Lomond when a typical
Irishman tramped by. He wore cordu
roy bree-Les to the knee and woolen
stuck Iig4. the conventional short cuddy
pipe Iu Bi mouth, and carried a bun
dle slung to the end of a stick over his
Pat," I called, "can you let me have
"Faith, I can that same," be replied
and. turning. Joined us.
"You're from the Emerald Isle?" I
"How did you know that?" he asked.
"I guessed It. Where are you bound?"
"Faith, since yer so good at guessin'
ye cau guess that also!"
I laughed and asked him if be would
have a uip from my flask, which he ac
cepted, and we all proceeded on our
way together. Marstou was evidently
not much pleased with the irishman's
company, but 1 found amusement in
his wit and would not let him leave
us. He seemed to take a great fauey
to me, but regarded Marston much as
Marston regarded him. However, we
kept together for several days, during
which Marston warned uie that the
fellow was preparing to "work" us In
some fashion and advised our getting
rid of him. Mars toil's prophecy was. in
a measure, fulfilled by the irishman,
when alone with me. asking for a loan
of W, accompanying bis request with
the following highly improbable story.
"I'm next to a baronetcy," he said,
"my cousin being the present possess
or of the title. He is dying with con
sumption, and I'm not sure but he's
dead by this time. I'm out of funds
and tramping It. If 1 can get them I
cau reach home much earlier, and it's
important that I be there before my
I refrained from smiling at the story,
but said that if he could give me the
family name I would refer the matter
to Marston. who knew all about the
British aristocracy. If Marstou knew
of the family and thought the matter
to be as represented I would cheer
fully make the loan.
This seemed to stagger him. He
thought the matter over, then said:
"Never mind. I'll foot it."
Marstou left us soon after this re
quest, and before parting warned me
not to le gulled by the Irishman, In
forming me that (personating connec
tions of the nobility was a common
confidence game iu the country, and
iuuMt people knew euough of it to keep
from lelug fleeced.
Pat and 1 trudged on together. He
made no further move to obtain a loan,
but permitted me to pay sundry ex
pense. Indeed. I paid for all bis
meals and his lodging where we stop
ped. I parted with him at Glasgow,
I going overland to Ixmdoii. while be
said he was going to work his way on
some vessel to Dublin. He had amus
ed me. and I thought I should pay him
for doing so. 1 handed him a five
pound note. He took the money, ask
ing me, of ourse, to whom he should
send It. I told him not to bother about
a return, but gave bim my address at
my bankers iu Indou.
"Good by. Pat." I said, "You're too
witty to remain a tramp. Come to
Aui-ricH and go into some show busi
ness. You'd keep au audience laugh
ing a whole evening."
"Godly," be replied. "You've been
very kind." And with that be left nie.
I reniMlned In Indoti for some time.
One day I received a note whhii read:
The Knil of ArruiK'raeh prefecnts Ills

Not ever having beard of the Karl of
Arrnseratfh. I believed he had made
some mistake and wrote him a iolite
note to that effect. By return mall I
received a reply stating that, mistake,
or no mistake, the Invitation held good,
and I .was requested to end my ac
ceptance. Not unwilling to see some
thing of foreign Irish life among the
highest class, I took advantage of the
altustiou, accepted aud on the date
named went to Ireland. On driving up
to the castle a gentleman whom I took
to be his lordship hurried to the porte
eochere and received me. As we stood
facing each other I ptit my band up to
my eyes to make sure they were seeing
aright. Iu a gentleman's dress I saw
the Irifh tramp I bad befriended in
I never made au investment that
yielded so bountiful a return. Not for
a week, but for a month, I was feted
as 1 bad never ben before. I asked
the earl why he bad told me that he
was next in line to a baronetcy instead
of an earldom. He replied that he
made a mistake iu mentioning any ti
tle since it only made bis story more
Improbable. I did not question him
about his life previous to bis cousin's
death, aud he did not refer to it. Evi
dently he bad had a pretty hard time
of it. It was probably no different
from the fste of ninny British "youn
ger sons" who. the estate leing en
tailed, are obliged to shift for them
selves When I left him he bad the delicacy
to make no reference to the small sums
I had expended for and loaned bim.
What I accepted from him would hare
- made its repayment objectionable.
