The neso was rery white and tender, and shrunk

"If it existed except in the writer's brain.

"I'd tie him in a Chineeo laundry to fatten

Another oddity was tbe letter of a Chicago
mechanic, who expressed in stultified phrase
ology the highest admiration for "tbe show,"
and summed up with a request that Mr. Mills
use his influence to get half fare rates for the
writer, wife and baby to visit the exposition;
or, he admitted, be would be glad of passes,
and, ai an Inducement, offered "if any plaster

RCRAL ART A CHICKEN BAHON.
Farther on in the pile was a letter from a
farmer, who evidently could not appreciate
th. Russian painter's UleuU "I weut tbar,"
he scrawls "gist to see them painteiis I bearn
so much about. My girl Jane's only 14, n she
kin paint Iwtter a blamed sight with skim

are not confined to the exposition. Two days
after assuming the assistant mayorship. Act
ing Secretary Himon S. Bass bad a stock of
odd applications filed away for mementoes.
Among these is one from a thoroughbred
Yankee, who asks:
"Mr. Mayor: What chance is there in St.
Louis for an official incubator, that M, on.
that Is a first class hatching machine which
I could get your indorsement for as mayor fur
about $ Mil Besides, I would rive you a
Couple of spring chickens every day while I

better and make It worth Tour while to make
a license or something, so I could put In a lot
and control the hatching business of your
town, l'lease answer quick, because I bavea
lot of eggs waiting. "
In another line was the letter which asked
If a brick making machine would pay here.
imt lh man spread the hatter all over tbe
grtadl who aekeo. It wlalirnm had bam
introduced here yet. and if not bow a coupl
dusen would take after tbe novelty wore off.
This came from Canada.

titty cents to let the job out not to exceed
1, for which he would like to send two doers
when the game law comes in. "Every roan
to bis trade," be winds up; "I can bunt; let
him as ran write poetry."
So common are these ap-al that an ap
plication to tbe mayor for tbe position as a
school teacher, etc, scarcely provokes
smile. Tbe answering of these eotntnuuica

possible for the woman to escape and for th.

horror, thinking woman and child would be
