AlVKPTlXO THE WHITE SHI KT.
'Tn some places this pleasing condition
of affairs has been brou!it about by the
active work of a single man, aided in a
measure, doubtless, by the natural fair
nenaof men when their feeling are prop
erly appealed to. For example, in one
camp after it had been discovered by the
man who conveyed the remount ranee of
the older inhabitants that the quiet, unas
suming strantrer who had persisted in wear
ing a white shirt had an arm n K around
as an oyster kejr, muscles of steel, the
heart of a lion and the timer's suddenness
of movement, there nnwe a feeling that
poRsiblv the shirt question was detwtable.
and some men went so f:ir an to say openly
that a man ouirht to tie permitted to wear
a white shirt if lie wanted to; ami when
the qnii-t man had in quirk succession
knocked out aeven siiprterti of the nega
tive side the change of sentiment was so
jrreat that it amounted practically to a re
versal of public opinion, and by common
consent he was permitted to wear Ins shirt.
"The fact is that althoiiu'n men are as
inflexible as ever on vital questions and aa
ready as ever to fhrht when 'he cause is

to concede to each citizen the free enjoy

been the gradual settlement of the coun

The sneaker was a New York drummer
who had traveled the country over and
again from one corner to the other. His
tliwourse was delivered in the smoking
room of a sleeping car on a far western
railroad. I lis sole auditor was the report
er. The drummer's discourse was tcru
'Torariiy interrupted by the gripping of the
air drakes and by the pxssing of the con
ditrtor through the car at the same mo

very nark. Aa the train paed slowly
through the pine woods it seemed as
though the great gaunt trees were moving

prove less gloomy than standing alone.
Natural!)- our talk was of train robbing.
AVe agreed that the modern way of rob
bing the express and mail earsonly was
more in keeping with the general growth
of progressive methods, and that it was
undoubtedly pleasanter for the passengers.
The train halted with the engine along
side the tank. It did seem as t hough it
took the engine a long time to drink, but
it was a tug engine. ow the train start,
and we begin to settle down to continue
the Journey when the brakes grip again,
and the train stops suddenly. Now our
car ia just abreast of the tank, from behind
which the robliers had emerged. We sur

far around as the eye will reach, but in the
niont casual manner, just as we might have
looked at a shed or a fence anywhere else,
FEI.T A "LITTLB CliiiloCf."
It waaa little curious, of course, that the
train should pull up suddenly at that par
ticular spot after having once started, but
beyond the commonplace "Wonder what's
up now?" neither of the passengers in the
smoking room betrayed any particular in
terest in the situation. The brakeman
went oat. Kverything aron ml seemed very
still, but the drummer and reporter con
tinued ineasy conversation. Wlmt under
current of thought there might lie in the
drummer's mind the newspaper man didn't
know, but he found time himself to think
that if the stop did mean robbers it might
be that they 'were men who still pursued
the cruder methods of personal robbery.
When the trnir, had started again, aa it
did veritoon, and, quickly gathering head

aniiroundingH far ls hinil, the two meu still
talked on in the samequiet manner, though
a close observer might have noticed in their
bearing just a trace of added buoyancy,
which ulmoHt approached animation when
the conductor came in. 'Without being In
the smallest degree foppish, the conductor
was distinctly natty ia appearauro. and he
was also a qui k. self reliant and energetic
man. It was, perhaps, bis breezy activity
of movement that stirred the two pa-wen-gers,
for they ceased their conversation,
and both asked In the same moment:
'What did we stop for?"
It was simple enough. The conductor
had stood at the tank for a moment after
giving the engineer the signal to go ahead
and had taken another glance at the for
ward cars as they slowly panted him. On
the forward platform of the baggage car
he saw a tramp. He jumped on the rear
platform of the same car, and pulled the
bell cord. The engineer stopied the train.
The conductor was on the platform with
the tramp before the train stopped. If the
traop had giveiumv reason wny he should
be permitted to ride it is possible the con
ductor would have carried him. As it was
he simply lifted him off and stood him on
the ground without a word, and then he
pulled the bell con I again.

The Klncr and tha Cat.
Mr. and Mrs. W. D. P. King, of W9 Vir
ginia avenue, southwest, passed through
an experience early one morning that will
no doubt linger in their memory for a long
time. While Mr. King and his wife were
wrapped in slumber at about 8 o'clock a
large sized cat entered the house
through an open window, it is supposed,
on a quiet hnnt after the many birds, both
stnffed and alive, which are in the house.
While the cat was meandering about the
room Mr. King awoke, and jumped from
the bed to put the Intruder out. The cat
darted for the stairway, and as be passed
Mr. King struck him with his hand, knock
ing Thomas against the wall. The blow
aroused all the savage instincts of the ani
mal, and he made a furious onslaught on
Mr. King, fixing his teeth in his right
hand, lacerating it severely, and using his
claws to good effect on his nightrobe.
The noise of the straggle alarmed Mrs.
King, and she bravely came to the rescue,
driving the cat away from her husband;
but the savage animal attacked her fiercely
and tore her band. For some minutes the
battle raged furiously, until Mrs. King
managed to secure a firm hold upon the
cat's throat, and choked it until it was in
sensible. Then Mr. King took it by the
tail and dashed its head against the wall
until it was cpjiarently dead. Mr. King
threw it into the yard, and after bandaging
up their wounds he and his wife retired to
finish out their night's rest. Karly next
morning Mr.. King went to the yard to see
how the cat looked by daylight; but it was
gone. It had doulKles taken advantage
of the proverbial rcmainingeight lives and
crawled away to recuperate. Washington
Licjht on Tobacco hjr a Hoy.
Tobacco grows something like cabbage,
but I never saw none ci Miked. I have heard
men say that cigars that was given them
election days for nothing was mostly cab
bage leaves. Tobacco stores are mostly
kept by wooden Indians, who stand at the
door and fool little boys by offering them a
bunch of cigars which is glued into the
Injun's hands, and is made of wood aLso.
I tried to smoke a cigar once, and I felt like
Epsom salts. Tobacco was invented by a
man named Walter Raleigh. When the
people first saw him smoking they thought
he was a steamboat and were frightened.
My sister Nancy is a girl. I don't know
whether she likes tobacco or not. There is
a young man named Ieroy who comes to
see her. I guess she likes li-my. He was
standing on the steps one night," and he had
a cigar in his mouth, and said he didn't
know as she would like it, and she said:
"ta-roy, the perfume is agreeable." But
when my big brother Tom lighted his pipe
Nancy said: "Cet out of the house, you

Unrest is an infallible sign of the times
in which we are now living. In this y:ar
1890 come the muttering of disconU nt
from sll sides. The man who does t ot
n cognize this fact is not thoughtful or
discerning. Some leading politicians t e
gin to view with unconcealed alarm tie
action of the farmers in banding thetis
selves together for independent actios,
politically and socially, under the natn -s
ot F. M. B. A. and Alliances. No clas
has been so patient under neg lect, nor k
willing to believe in their politics! leaders
as the farmers. In fact, as Jese Harpt r
said, "they have lacked individuality an I
have been too prone to follow politict 1
leaders. Against their own interests eve:i
now a large number of F. M. B. A. has
ten to say that their work is to be strictH
"non-partisan" and this is proof positive
that they still worship their party snd arc
still inclined to follow the same political
leaders. Nothing so pleases the profes
sional politicim as the term "noc j.arti

tity. But it is not so in all the states.

to Jesse Harper before he commenced bis

coiil l net see what be coul i nnd to talk
about, considering that the F. M. B. A.
was a non-poHtical organization. "Ah.
but," says he. "the F. M. B. A. is a politi
cal organization, but a great many of the
farmers don't know it." We unierUnd
Mr. Harper's speech has given ereal of
fense to some. How could it be other
wise? How could be show the farmers
how they wens discriminated against by
republican legislation without giving of
fense tn that party? How could he pro
claim that there wss no difference be
tween the two old parties upon the tariff
question without offending the demo
crats? Can a platform speaker be placed
in a more awkward predicament than to
be expected to address a professed non
partisan association upon the political is
sues of the day without giving offense?
The greatest objection that any one could
raise ausinst Mr. Harpei'j speech whs
that he. like Robert Ingersoll, makes use
of words that are no credit to himself or
tbecause he represents.
