This year the procession was quite

Mr Pluni Levi the barber of the olJ

still points with pride to the gory
towel which he used on me, was in tho
Procession. He wore a pink mask and
Ullitle made of two large perforated
bber doormats. Uis feet were in

Flotsam Garside wore a navy blue

as mirthful. He is a great reader, al

lie did not seem to unbend, I thought,
so much as he ought, considering that
crowned heads have rested on this bos
om, such as it is, and that dynasties
have staid all night it our house.
After 1 had gone the owner of the
theater said to him reproachfully:
"That was Mr. Nye, the great Amer
ican humorous wri er, Mr. Eber. Did
you understand tho name fully when 1

inflection, as he sat down on tho chim

is too great a mar to ho hurt by news
paper criticism, but why in heaven's
name cannot eox!o of prominence get
along smoothly together? 1 think wo
should stand by eat h other. Ten years
ago 1 met the two headed girl for tho
first time, and wh le the meeting was
not effusive, it was cordial. 1 have also
met the Prince o: Wales and Sitting
Bull, anil there wai no coldness, no pro
fessional jealonsy between us.
1 also once met Joseph Cook, who was
on his way to his regular work repair
ing and editing s-ome of the works of
God, and even ho was kindly and al
most sweet to me.
So 1 say that people of prominence
should play into one another's hands.
Reminiscences of Senator Plumb are
so plenty since his death that I venture
to call up one of the incidents of his
early experience. We had been running
around over the Capitol, looking at
whatever was curious in the way of
memoranda sent in to congress by the
presidents, like ap wintments, etc. some
in pencil on mani la paper containing a
whole cabinet pel hais, but as informal
as a list of vegetables for 3-onr cook to
order for over Sunday; then others
would be stiff and formal, like George
Washington enga ged in taking the thirty
third degree in Masonry. We had looked
over and commented' on all these things,
swapped bon mot.t with Senator Ingalls,
greatly to our own advantage, for Sena
tor Plumb was never remarkable for
his repartee, and as a bright and ready
bon motter I cou'd never make wages,
being slow of thought and possessing
rather a profound mind not of course
the profundity noticed in fresh, yonng,
newly matriculated asshood, but a depth
which is slowlv stirred, shadowed over
J with an earnest gloom.
We then went up into tho gallery and
for an hour or two forgot our own great
ness; the senate chamber faded away
on the drowsy, buzzing wings of the
motion to refer to the committee on
rules; the hot. Turkish bath air which
is used to sprout the senatorial thought
lulled us to half forgetfulness and
hushed the pop of the committee's re
port. For the t.me we were back again
in the far west, with widening miles be-
tweenusnnd the chaste refinement of
Senator Hoar; with billowing, breezy
' ctntoa Viafn'oati tia aits? V r1 -i aai " f-J i C
cock, the deep, appealing ayes of Came
ron and the Roman noes of Edmunds;
we were again sitting astride the waspy
cayuse or returning hurriedly to camp,
where kind hi nds again pulled out the
arrow of the savage and told us how the
place looked to one who could get
around there a ad see for himself. How
kind hands co-ild tell this to one I leave
the ready and versatile reader to figure
"We used tc make our writing ink in
the early day where 1 lived," said Mr.
Plumb, "of maple bark, which was
boiled down till it was a little redder
than umbrella juice and a little thicker
than stump w iter.
I "It looked badly, but it was a peri
compared to the way it rmelled. It
mnelled like tho del.-.o at low tide.
New York when it is opening up a sulD
way on a hot day shows great possibili
ties, but it cannot get in the little trills
and throbs of measly and antique stench
that this homemade and fermented ink
"Once I went over to try a case before
a poor white justice of the peace over
thirty miles away. He was a plain, un
educated man, who used his tongue in
writing and breathed heavily, like a
mush kettle, while thinking.
"Opposed to me as counsel was a man
who had been admitted to the bar. I
hail not. He was rather pompous, and
hated to try a case before a country jus
tice, but he had to do it. He was hot
and cross, and while he was making his
argument one of the children got an
acorn up its nose and we had to stop
and bore it out with the iron worm on
an old ramrod, lhat made counsel
mad. and while he was making a dila
tory motion the Square picked a briei
out of the palm of his hand with a Bar
low knife and overruled it.
"Then counsel got so hot that he for
got, himself and said things to the court
which ought to have remained forever
unsaid. After that the court got angry
and threatened to commit counsel for
contempt. Counsel allowed that the
court did not know enough to draw the
" 'All right. 1 will show yon, says the
court, and thereupon he bit off a piece
of tobacco about the size of a prayer
book and took down a large, fat volume
of forms for justices of the peace weigh
ing alwut nine jHmnds and smelling of
pork gravy and childhood.
"He wrote on and on till dinner time.
Then ho glared at the man he was en
gaged in committing and ate the un
demonstrative corn dodger with him
"1 didn't mind the bitterness between
the conrt and counsel, for it was all
good for my tide. After dinner the
Square rolled up one corner of the oil
cloth tablecloth and went on with the
mittimus. All that afternoon, with
bulging eye and wet brow, while oppos
ing counsel sat and smoked under the
cool shadow of tho cottonwood, the
broiling gentleman on the superheated
woolsack painfully wrote on.
"Toward twilight, as tho frogs in tho
hollow smote the soft and echoless
gloaming with their metallic song, tho
court closed with the final 'whereof fail
not at your peril,' and the commitment
was duly drawn.
"Looking over earnestly at it and lean
ing on the shoulder of the court, I can
still see the calm, pale face of counsel
as he looked searchingly over the still
wet and fragrant document.
"Then firmly and deftly upsetting the
big, quart ink Iwttle over the mighty
legal masterpiece, and thereby turning
loose upon tho horrified night a fra
grance so able, so durable ami so pro
nounced that you could tie horses to it,
" 'There, yon overgrown mushrat!
You shapeless paunch of justice with
out its brains; you overgrown and
fungus error on the face of nature; you
old he mud hen of the swamps; you
malarial old intellectual wart on the
brow of creation, by tho time you can
go down on the bottoms and gather your
maple bark and bring it home and boil
it, and put tho caustic fragrance into it
for another quart of ink, 1 will be in an
other county; and by the time you can
draw another mittimus 1 will be in most
any other state which I may select.
" '1 now bid you adieu. Cauliflower.
Au rcfoir, old Polypus 011 the mem
brane of nature, blight upon tho great
job of creation, farewell.' "
He then kicked the old mother dog
across the kitchen ami strode fiercely
down the child bordered pathway.
A couple of Germans in the dumps
were sitting in a New York restaurant
bewailing the state of things in America.
Suddenly a stylishly dressed gentleman
addressed one of the Germans as fol
lows: "Sir, you have just been vilifying my
country. 1 challenge you to fight."
The German was quite taken aback,
but accepted tho challenge. The duel
ists and their seconds met at the ap
pointed time and place. The American
fired and missed. The German took de
liberate aim at the heart of the Yankee,
and his shot took effect; but instead of
dropping to the ground, the American
unbuttoned his coat and displayed a
white shield with the following inscrip
tion in gold letters:
"The firm of Green & Co., H
street, beg to call the attention of duel
ists to their new patent breast plates."
Ida Did you see my father?
Walter Yes, I told him I had come
to ask him for the greatest blessing a
young man could ask bis daughter's
"And what did he say?"'.
"He seemed very much pleased said
he was afraid at first I wanted to borrow
some money." Comic.
