"We kep' summer boarders the past
season," said Orlando McCnsick, of East
Kort right, to me yesterday, as we sat in
the spring house and drank" cold milk
from a large yellow bowl with white
stripes around it; "we kep' boarders from
town all summer in the Catskills, and
that ia why I don t figger on doing of
next year. You fellers that writes the
pieces and makes the pictures of us folks
that keeps the boarders has got the laugh
on us as a general thing, but 1 would
like to be interviewed a little for the
press, so's that 1 can be set right before
the American people."
"Well, if you will state the case fairly
and honestly 1 will try to give you a

ing off Ins boot and removing his jack
knife, which had worked its way through
his pocket and down his leg, then squint
ing along the new "tap" with one eye to
see how it was wearing before he put it
on, "1 did not know how healthy it was

i guess it is you can it, wnere it says
that the relation of temperature to oxy

highest importance. Iu a cubic foot,
it says, ' f air at 3,000 feet elevation,
with a temperature of 32 degs., there is
s much oxygen as in a like amount of
ir at sea level with a temperature of 63
degs. Another important fact that
should not be lost sight of,' this able
feller says, 'by thoso affected by pul
monary diseases is that three or four
times as much oxygen is consumed in
activity as in repose.' (Hence the hor-
uets' oests introduced by me this season.)
llien in climates made stimulating by
increased electric tension and cold, ac
tivity must le followed by an increased
endimose of oxygen.' "
"So you decided to select and fnrni
endoemose of oxvgen to sufferers?"
"Yes. 1 went into it with no notions
of makiug a pile of money, but 1 argued
that these folks would give anything for
Health. U e folks are apt to argy that
people from town aro all well off and
liberal, and that if they can come out
and get all the buttermilk and straw
rides they want, and a little flush of
color and a wood tick on the back of
their neck, they don't reck a pesky reck
what it costs. That is only occasionally
so. Ask any doctor yon know of if the
average man won't give anything to save
his life, and then when it's saved put his
propity into his womern's name. That's
human. You know the good book says
a pure man fromNew York is the noblest
work of God."
"Well, when did this desire to endos
mose your fellow man first break out on

these letters for mental improvement.
hoping also that someone in the country
might want them for the refinement
they would engender in the family
"I took one young wouiern from town
once, and allowed her 23 per cent, off for
her refining influence. Her name was
Etiquette McCnirken. She knew very
little iu the first place, and had added to
it a good deal by storing up in her mind
a lot of membranous Iheories and dam

Well, Ltiqmtte McCracken very nigh

She said if her set was at our honse they

said if they did I'd wring their cussed
necks with laughter. 'Why,' she say,
don't you like merriment?' 'Yes,' 1
says, 'I like merriment well enough, bnt
the cackle of a vacant mind rattling
around in a big farm house makes me a
fiend and nnmans me, and I gnaw np
two or three people a day till I get over
it,' I says."
"Well, what became of Miss Mc
Cracken?" "Oh, she went np to her room in Sep

next day, with her little shawl strap, she
lit out for the city, where she was en
gaged to marry a very wealthy old man
whoso mind haJ lie-n crowded out by
an intellectual tumor, but who had a
kind heart and had pestered her to death
for years to marry him and inherit his
wealth. I afterward learned that in this
matter she had lied."
"Did you meet any other pleasant peo
ple last season?" -
"Yes, I met some blooded children
from Several Hundred and Fifth street.
They come here so's they could get a
breath of country airand wear out their
old cloze. Their mother said the poor
things wanted to get out of the niawl

was awful where they lived. Just" one

"We had a nice old man that come
out here to attend church, he said.
Ho belonged to a big church in
town, where it cost him so much
that ho could hardly look his maker
m tho face, he said. Last winter,
he said, they sold the pews at auction,
and he had an affection for one, 'specially
'cause he and his wife had set in it all
their lives, and now that she was dead he
wanted it, as he wanted the roof that had
been over them all their married lives.
So he went down when they auctioned
em off. as it seems they do in those big
churches, and tho bidding started moder

on his'n that froze him out, and he had
to take a cheap one where he couldn't
hear very well ami it made him sort of
bitter. Then in Mav, he savs, the. Pales
tine rash broke out among the preachers
in New York, and most of 'em had to go
to the Holy Land to get over it, because
that is the only thing you can do with
the Palestine rash when it gets a hold
on a pastor. So he says to me, I come
out here mostly to see if 1 could get any
late information from tho Throne of

told me a good deal about one thing and
another. He said he'd seen it stated in
the paper that salvation was free, bat in
New ork he said it was pretty well
protected for an old established industry.
"He knew Deacon Decker pretty well.
Deacon Decker was an old playmate of
Jay Gould's, but didn't do so well as
Jay did. He went once to New York
after he got along in years, and Gould
knew him. bnt he couldn't seem to place
Gould. 'Why. Decker.' savs Gould.
'don't you know me? Decker says, 'That's
all right. You bet 1 know ye. You're
one of these fellera that knows every
body. There's another feller around the
corner that helps yon to remember folks.
1 know ye. I read the papers. Git out.
Scat Torment ye. I ain't in here to

freight bill for ye. So avauut before I

"Finally Jay identified himself, and
shook dice with the deacon to see which
should buy the lunch at the dairv
"Deacon Decker once in church discov
ered a loose knot in his pew seat, and
while considering tho plan of redemp
tion thoughtlessly pushed with consider
able force on this knot with his thumb.
At first it resisted the pressure, but
finally it slipped out and was succeeded
by the deacon's thumb. No one saw it.
so the deacon, slightly flushed, gave it a
stealthy wrench, bnt the knot hole had
a sharp conical tiottom, and the edge
soon caught and secured the rapidly
swelling thumb of Deacon Decker.
"During the closing prayer he worked
at it with great diligence and all the
saliva he could spare, bnt it resisted. It
was a sad sight. Finally he gave it up.
and said to himself tho struggle was use
less. He tried to be resigned and wait
till all had gone. He shook his head
when the plate was passed to him, and
only bowed when the brethren passed
him on the way oat Some thought that
may be he was enrsed with doubts, but
reckoned that they wonld pass away.
inauy he was missed outside. He
was generally so chipper and so cheery.
So his wife was asked-about him. 'Why,
farner's inside, I'll g(. and get him. I
never knew him to miss shaking hands
with all the folks.'
'So she went in ar.d found Deacon
DecVer trying to interest himself in a
lesson leaf with one hand, while his other
was concealed under his hat. He could
fool the neighbors, bnt he could not fool
his wife, and so she hustled around and
umioiiuor iwo, wno told their wives,
and they all came back to see the deacon
and make suggestions to him.
"This little incident is true, and while
it does not contain any siecial moral, it
goes to show that an honest man gathers
no moss, and also explains a largo cir
cular hole and tho tin patch over it

Somebody who has ac unusually large
stock of moral force and virtuous indig
nation baa written a leng letter to the
Union regarding the candidates for con
gress. It is full of l egret at certain
things and offers an abundance of the
most unique advice, li contains state

truth, but that might have been expected
It was perhaps the res lit of ignorance
and not of intentional m srepresentation
1 he charge Is made that the A nous
does not give Mr. Gest ciedit for what he
has done, and that everj few days since
the meeting of congress the newspapers
of Chicago, 8L Louis and other cities
have had something to say complimen
tary of Mr. Gest and h i work in that
body. It was hardly to be expected that
the one who begins by bewailing the ex
istence of deception should be addicted to
that method throughout the whole arti
cle. It is not to be expected that evtw.
, - - j
body shall read every dt.y the papers of
Chicago, St. Louis and other places. The
writer of the article iitder discussion,
who signs himself "A Rock Island Citi
zen, knew this and it resented to him
a favorable opportunity of deceiving bis
readers, and he did whaU ver he could to
accomplish it. The pape n of Chicago or
8t- Louis pay no attention whatever to
Mr. Gest. It is barely possible that their
editors eyer heard of him, except by see
ing bis name in print occisionally when
ever the roll was called in tho house
And even if they were desirous of
praising him for some inscrutable
purpose they could not find anything
by which their laudations could be
justified or sustained. The one who
makes this assertion about Mr. Gest be
ing spoken of so frequently in the papers
mentioned, cannot give the names of the
papers, their dates, nor what was said
concerning him, except i.i some solitary
instance when bis name appeared as a
matter of routine. The unfortunate fact
is that our representative cuts no more
figure in congressional nutters in Wash
ington than does the woodt n imape carved
on the prow of a vessel assist in the
sailing of the craft. The 'onder is open
ly expressed in that city that this district
should send such a reprc si n a ive. He
repels rather than attracts. He has not
the faculty of making frh nds. nor keep
ing those he ever possessei. He ia timid.
plodding, and lacking in tact and nerv
ous force. He has all the deplorable con
ditions of weakness as a (emulator, and
carries about with him the evidence to
show it. There is noth ng in him to
elicit the comment of anj paper outside
of this district except to refer to his
chances for re-election, an 1 thus add one
more vote to the republicans in the house
one more vote to increase 'he taxes to thti
farmer and consumer generally.
There is an effort mado to get up a lit
tie good will for Mr. Gest because ot
what he is supposed to have done for
local interests here. In the name of all
that is sacred what has he ever doner Let
it be plainly stated, lie has lived

Many diseases, especially those f the nervous
system, are the products of dally n newed mental
exhaustion. Business avocations often involve
an amount of mental wear and tear very prejudi
cial to physical health, and the professions, if sr
daoaely pursued, ire no less destructive to brain
and nerve tlssne. It Is one of the mort impor
tant attributes of Hostetter's Sto nach Bitters,
that It compensates for this undue 1 ws of tissue,
and that It Imparts new energy to he brain and
nerves. The rapidity with whi :n It renews
weakened mental enerzy and physical vitality Is
remarkable and show that iu in vh -orating prop
erties are of the highest order. Be sides increas
ing vital stamina, and counteracting the effects of
mental exhaustion, this potential medicine cures
and prevents fever and ague, rheum itism, chronic
dyspepsia and constipation, kidney and uterine
weakness and other complaints P 0 stcians also
recommend it aa a medicated stituu iant and rem-dy.
