Keithsb jrg, Aug. 7. The nomination
of Mr. B. T. Cable for con Kress by the
democracy of the Eleventh district gives
great satisfaction here where be has
many friemis who have known him from
boyhood. The fact that all the Q eat lie
aspirants for office from this county were
utterly and completely ignored by the
anti-Gests' at the recent county conven
tion carrier a forcible significance. A
special flgl.t was made in this city on
the Gest platform, and resulted
in the sending of none but Gestiles to
the Aledo convention, but when the
other townships became aware of that
burg's attenpt to force an unwelcome
liest crowd upon them they rose up in
their wisdom and might and smote the
Gestiles, and each and every member of
that tribe looking for a county office per
ished with them.
Scores 01 hitherto staunch and unre
lenting republicans openly declare that
they will not vete for Gest. Among them
are promtntnt and influential old soldiers
and citizen) and others conspicuous in
the Mercer county rank and file of the" g.
Further than this, while MY Meriz is
making as food a postmaster as could be
expected of a new man, the old fight is
still raging iind will cost Gest scores of
votes in thit city, and as for the count v.
Cable will Cirry it with all ease. Tbe
farmers havu opened their eyes to the
shell game cf protection and cannot be

other western man in politics who
is such a passionate lover of a rare
book as Mr. Cable, and that is Senator

aimed especially to make his collection
rich in editions of Snasspere and in
works relating toShakspere. He has the
working copy used by Joseph Crosby, the

markings and notes made by Mr. Cros

used as these have been. He has a'so

additional plates. More valuable than
this, perhaps, is his Hallowell-PhUHps

MR. AND MRS. BOWSER.
The Lattow Telia Hfw the Former Moved
the UaU Coal Stove.
Last fall Mr. Bowser put a base burner
in tbe front hall to keep it at a comfort
able temperature during the winter, and
wben the spring came nothing was said
about moving the stove. It was not in
the way. We had no place to move it
to, and when summer came without Mr.
Bowser having said anything about a
removal I felt perfectly assured that he
would leave that stove alone. Great
was my consternation, therefore, when
he suddenly observed the other evening
as we roasted on the front steps:
"Well, well, but how absent minded
I have become! Why didn't you call
my attention to the fact that that coal
stove had not been moved out of the
"Because it is to be left there."
"Not much I People must have thought
as a queer family to have it there as long
as we have."
"Mr. Bowser, that stove is not in the
way, and it is not an eyesore. Besides
we have no place to store it."
"It goes to the barn of course."
"Mr. Bowser, you can no more move
that stove than I can fly."
"Can't I? I can do it with one hand
tied behind me, and Til go right at it."
"Mr. Bowser, remember that I pro
"Certainly. You are the great Amer
ican protester, anyway. If I killed a fly
I went back to the steps, knowing well
what would happen, but I felt that I had
done my duty. I heard him fussing
around for a while, and then be muttered:
"She's purty hefty, but she's got to
come out o' this."
Ten seconds later there was a wild
whoop, and when I got into the hall Mr.
Bowser stood on one foot and was shak
ing the other in the air, while the top
of the stove lay on the floor He had
pulled it off at the first grab.
"Thunder and blazes and Jewhit-
taker and Texas and Jemima!" he was
yelling as he waved his foot aloft.
"Didnt I tell yon?" I queried, as 1
looked at him.
"Not Never! Yon never said a word
not a wordl"
"Now, will yon let that stove alone?"
"No! m tako it out of here if I die
for it !"
"Mr. Bowser, this pig headed obstinacy
of yours will surely lead to"
"None of tbe Bowser family were ever
yet downed by a coal stove, and it's too
late to begin now!"
Another man would have removed the
lfgs first. He didn't think of it, but un
dertook to move the stove as one moves
a barrel standing on end. Ho bad pro
gressed about nv-3 feet when thero was a
sound which frightened the whole neigh
borhood. My first impression was that tho gin
ger ale factory in tho alley had exploded
and driven our barn np against the
kitchen. My next was that a British
gunboat had alipped aronnd from the
Behring sea and dropped a 400-pound
shell on tbe roof of our house to, offset
Mr. Bowst'r'a assertions that we were
the greatest fighting nation on earth.
I knew what had happened. So - did
the cook. So did tha neighbors. It was
a minute, liefore I could move, and I was
flying indoors when I heard Mr. BowKsr
uttr a strange Bound something be
tween the last roar of a dying lion and
the plaintive moan of a cow for her lost
calf. I couldn't see him at first. It was
all stove, and the stove was on top of
him. Between my screams and the cook's
shouts we got a neighbor in, and the
three of us lifted np the stove and drag
ged Mr. Bowser out.
I got the doctor np. No- hones were
broken, but Mr. Bqwser- had collapsed,
like an empty barrel, and every square
Inch of him was bruised and pounded
It was long after midnight before he
said.auytlung. I was rubbing him with
arnica with one hand and fanning him
with the other, when he looked np and
"Mrs. Bowser, is it fatal?"
"Oh, no, dear."
"Any bones broken?"
"Did the stove fall on me?"
"Don't yes, dear,' me, Mrs. Bowser,
fori won't stand it! The scales have
fallen from my eyes at last, and I know
you for what you are! A nice Job,
wasn't it! Calculated I'd be driven
through the floor, didn't you? Hoped to
be a widow by this time, eh? To-morrow,
