being the outcome, of trouble over the ex

Catholic organization. The theatre was
filled to overflowing with both sexes,
and equally as many A. P. A-'a
as anti's were present, as it was
announced that the declaration - of

The declaration of principles, oath and

were read, also a list of several hundred
members. As the names were read some
rose tip and answered "Here." There was
cheering and some confusion but no real
disturbance occurred. The list included
many well-known citizens. Resolutions
denunciatory ot the A. P. A. were passed,
some voting "No." Both parties claim to
be satisfied with the result of the meet

CARRY PISTOLS TO SCHOOL.
A '-Somewhat Peculiar" Condition of Af
fairs In Louisiana.
New Orleans, Oct. 20. A somewhat
peculiar condition of affairs exists in east
Feliciana parish. In this state, as may be
judged from the complaint that the
parish superintendent of schools makes to
the school board of the habit of boys,
even in the lower schools, going there
armed with revolvers. He insists that
this a bad custom; that boys ought not to
carry pistols, and that the teachers should
prohibit them from doing so, and makes
tbe following suggestion to the school
board in his official report:
Seems a Reasonable Sacrestlon.
Carrying pistols to school should be positive
ly forbidden, and any teacher knowingly per
mitting it should be dismissed. It people see
fit to allow their boys to go on in this uncivil
ized manner ihey should not be permitted to
carry weapons to school to cripple the chil
dren ot other people.
Tbe board favors tbe proposition, and
tbe revolver will no longer be regarded as
a necessary branch of the curriculum of
the public schools.

Tiffany, pastor of the Hennepin Avenue
Methodist Episcopal church, died at 4
o'clock Saturday afternoon. He had been
ailing for some weeks, and his death was
not unexpected. Dr. Tiffany was one of

had filled tbe leading pulpits in Chicago,
New York, Brooklyn, Philadelphia and
Washington. He was aUo known as a
k cturer of great ability.
France Will Be at the Fair.
Paris, Oct. 26. Leading Americans
here are satisfied that tbe government is
sincerely anxious for a creditable exhibit
of French industries at tbe Chicago fair,
both because it will be to the material in
terest of France, and in order to show re
spect and friendship towards tbe Ameri
can republic Tbe government itself will
be well represented, and It is believed that
there will be an increased interest on the
subjeot among the French people.
CALIFORNIA FIRST PAPER.
If you start out to make a livelihood by
the pen, with only tbe dollar mark before
you, you will fail unless you have a gigan
tic genius for blinding tbe editors and
tbeir public. Tbe man or woman who
writes only with the one overpowering
idea in view of what tbe work will bring
him or her makes a great mistake, and
never will make anything else. What are
called "literary grinders" by editors and
publishers are never popular or conspicu
ous for tbeir success. They may seem to
make a hit here or there, but not very
often. The lane of tbe "literary hack" has
a very abort and sharp turn, and it is gen
erally not far from the opening of the road.
An editor is quick to single out tbe "grind
er," as her work invariably shows it, and
the man or woman who is thus classified
in the editorial mind is most unfortunate.

The Advantage of a Hobby.
Almost every person of wealth and op
portunities has a hobby. One has a pre
dilection for pictures, another for armor,
still another for coins, or medallions,
watches, or the fad of souvenir spoons.
As to tbe latter, it is recorded that one in
defatigable collector has succeeded in get
ting together a variety of spoons of every
age and nation since man first discarded
tbe use of fingers for a more civilized sub
stitute. A certain philosopher advises all persons
to have a hobby. It gives a spice to life to
have an absorbing object. At seventy

A 6heet That Most Have Been a Curies
Ity Even In the Early Days of 184s).
- Gardiner Q. Colton writes to a New York
paper apropos of tbe suspension of Tbe
Alta California of San Francisco, concern
ing tbe origin or that paper, which was a
little sheet issued in Monterey by his
brother, the Rev. Walter Colton, then
chaplain in tbe United States service. He
quotes from his brother's "Three Years in
California," now a rare book:
"Saturday, July 15, 1846. Today the first
newspaper ever published in California
made its appearance. Tbe honor, if such
it be, of writing its prospectus fell to me.
It is to be issued every Saturday, and is
published by Semple & Colton. My part
ner is an emigrant from Kentucky, who
stands 0 feet 8 Inches in his stockings.
He is in a buckskin dress, a foxskln cap, is
true with his Title, ready with bis pen and
quick at the type case. He created the
material of our office out of chaos of a
small concern which had been used by a
Roman Catholic monk in printing a few
"The press was old enough to be pre
served as a curiosity: tbe mice had bur
rowed in tbe balls; there were no rules, no
leads, and the types were rusty and in pi.
It was only by scouring that the letters
could be made to show tbeir faces. A sheet
or two of tin was procured, and these, with
a jackknife, were cut into rules and leads.
Luckily we found with the press tbe great
er part of a keg of ink, and now came the
main scratch for paper. None could be
found except what is used to envelope the
tobacco of the cigar smoked here by the
"A coaster had a small supply of this on
board, which we procured. It is in sheets
a little larger than the common sized fools
cap. And this is tbe size of our first paper,
which we have christened The Californian.
Though very small in dimensions, our first
number is as full of news as a black wal
rSatis of meat. We have received by couri
ers during the week intelligence from all
the important military posts through the
territory. Very little of this has trans
pired. It reaches tbe public for the first
time through our sheet.
"We have also the declaration of war be
tween the United States and Mexico, with
an abstract of the debate in the senate. A
crowd was waiting when the first sheet
was thrown from the press. It produced
quite a little sensation. Never was a bank
run upon harder, not, however, by people
with paper to get specie, but exactly tbe
reverse. One-half of the paper is in Eng
lish, tbe other in Spanish. The subscrip
tion for a year is $5; the price for a single
sheet is I2i4 cents, and is considered cheap
Reserving Scats on Trains.
"We read a good deal about the 'hog, as
he is called, on railway trains," remarked
an old traveler, "but there is one thing
that I have noticed in my journeys that
seems to me to deserve more attention than
it receives. That is the regard that travel
ers show for the rights of others. I never
go on a trip that I fail to notice it. It is
the universal custom to recognize tbe right
of a person to a seat if he or she has pre
empted it by leaving a valise or other prop
erty in it to indicate that it has been re
served, so to speak. In all my experience
I never saw any one seize upon such a piece
of baggage and eject it, and then sit down
and occupy the seat. That seems to me
to be really remarkable.
"And then how rarely does it happen
that a passe n eer loses any baggage that he
may have left unguarded in a peat. A man
may go into tbe smoking car and may re
main an hour or more, and on bis return
he will find his property Intact. At sta
tions where there are eating houses pas
sengers get out by the score, reserving their
seats with bags, overcoats, books, maga
zines, etc, and on coming back will find
everything undisturbed. This regard for
others' rights is one of the characteristics
of American travelers that ought to be em
phasized. I have seen numerous specimens
of the genus 'hog,' and nobody can be more
disgusted than I at the exhibitions they
make; but over against them I like to set
the other quality of which I have spoken.
There is a good bit of unselfishness iu this
world, after alL" New York Tribune.
A Schoolmaster's Nickname.
For some reason of his own, an assistant
master at our school, whose Christian
name was Joseph, used to sign himself at
length, "Josephus," apparently consider
ing it an improvement on the more famil
iar appellation. Though a good fellow as
assistant masters go, he was terribly fussy
about trifles which a master with more
tact would have passed by as if unseen.
The consequence was that we made tbe
most of his precious front name, and tbe
school humorist dubbed him, "Josey Fuss,"
not a bad play upon the name of Josephus.
