At the dinner of the Grey stone club, of
Denver, on Tuesday, a long letter upon
the political situation was read from Sen
ator Vest, of Missouri. In concluding
the senator said:
If the controlling element of the New
York democracy persists in forcing Guv.
Hill upon the party, and will accept no
other conclusion, it seems to me our can
didate should come from the west. In
that event my preference would be for
that tried and fal'hful democrat, William

FoMal Wervire Bed Tape.
Messrs. George P. Rowell & C., of
New York, started a neat little publica
tion nearly three years ago, entitled
Printer's Ink. It was and is devoted
to the art of advertising. Not only does
it endeavor to collate expert opinions as
to methods of advertising, but aids in the
origination of new advertising ideas. In
its chosen field it has been a great suc
cess. There is a host of advertisers in
the United States who have learned from
its pages how to advertise how to sp nd
their money so as to increase their re
turns. Ana tnis nas not oeen alone tor
the benefit of the general advertiser,
Tbonsands of wide-awaue local mer
chants have obtained new ideas from its
bright pages, and thereby increased the
attractiveness, and consequently the
effectiveness of their advertising.
But this useful little periodical has be
come entangled in the red tape of the
postofllce department. Last December
its publishers announced that, for every
yearly advertisement in its pages, thpj
would send a paid up subscription to
Printer's Iuk for the same amount. An
advertiser who, for example, ordered an
advertisement in its pages amounting to
$ 1,000, might present 500 friends each
with a year's paid up subscription to
the periodical. This the postofllce de
partment rules to be illegal, and therefore
orders that Printer's Ink shall ne longer
be admitted to the mails at second-class
rates, bot that each copy must htve a
one cent stamp affixed involving an ad
ditanal expense of $500 per week.
It is, as the Toledo Blade ho ds, diffi
cult to understand why Printer's Ink is
excluded from the privilege of second
class postage rates. The postal laws
say nothing as to the proportion the ex
changes, sample copica and free copies,
which a periodical may send through the
mails shall bear to its actual paid-up sub
scription list. Printer's Ink says that
not over 5,000 names of subscribers have
been in on the offer to which the depart
ment objects, out of a total lis', of over
44.000. In the absence of any specific
provision of the law. is it not an arbi
trary use of power for the postoffice au
thorities to make a rule for themselves

Near Rockcastle river is a famous group
of wild, rocky, pine covered hills, locally
know i as Round Stone Knobs. A. coo pie
of da;n ago Dr. J. J. Kite, a prominent
young dentist, went with dog and gan intc
that locality to shoot quail, and for a time
he hail excellent sport. About noon, how
ever, thunderstorm came up and he

his lof ; he entered it, and was surprised tc
find hi mself in a large winding gallery with
steep ind craggy walls on either side aud
with a roof that rapidly ascended to a con
siderable height. About twenty-five feet
from ihe entrance was an object which ar
rested his attention. It was a gigantit,
bowldi r, oblong in shape and weighing
hundn dsof tons, lying in an oblique po
sition on a high jutting ledge, with its
hugecest upreared awfully into a gap in
the ea. ern's roof.
It lex ked as though a slight shock or tlit
touch f a meddlesome hand might displace
it and cause it to come crashing down. In
deed it was one of those frightful death
traps f nature, grim and sinister, some
times tound in subterranean passages ot
upon ji gged precipices. .
Dr. Kite is of an adventurous disposition,
also he is a naturalist and geologist of no
small r -pute. The novelty and excitement
felt in penet rating the unexplored, so
fascina ing to daring spirits, allured and
emboldened him. Believing that he should
make s ine interesting discoveries he ad
vanced resolutely iuto the cavern. Ash
did so 1 is faithful dog suddenly curled its
tail bet .vecn its legs and made a speedy
exit. At the same time the doctor saw two
fiery ey.-s glaring from a dark corner.

way of escape. A Plutonian darkness en
veloped him. Moreover, a vast tribe ot
bats, di -turned by the detonation of his
gun and the shifting sound. In-gan to
swarm along the passage, numbers of them
alight in i on his person. They were of re
markable size and fierceness and seemed
disposed to attack him. So vicious did
they bee line that he was forced to fight
them off by swift movements of his hands.
They swept forward in enormous flocks,
as if to escape, and that quarter of the cav
ern was piii-kly alive with them.
Murined and only partly aroused from
their stupor, thousands precipitated them
selves against the jutting rocks and fell
upon the floor dead or flapping awkwardly
about in their wounded agony. They
swarmed on the floctor's back and neck
like liute bees. They dashed against his
face and clung to his clothes, his hair and
his liearl, and their whirling wings, bcl j
lowslike, w hirled the dry dust of centuries
about in clouds, grievously irriuit ing the
hunter's already exhausted lungs.

when an old fellow darted out of the door
of a low cabin, jumped the rail fence in

as if a marshal had been in close pursuit.
"Hello, stranger, stay er minute!" he
yelled, gesticulating wildly with his right

He came up, puffing and blowing, with
his eyes quivering with wild excitement.

A member of the company of actors at a
Prussian theater was to have a benefit
night, and the question was how to get to
gether a good audience. Accordingly,
some days before the eventful evening,
there appeared in all the papers an adver
tisement tothe followingeffect: "A gentle
man who has a niece and ward possessing
a disposable property of 3,000, together
witn a mercantile establishment, desires to
find a young man w ho would be able to
manage the business and become the hus
band of the young lady. The possession tt
property or other qualification is no object.
Hundreds npon hundreds of letters
poured in in reply to this advertisement.
On the morning of the lencfit day each
person who had sent a reply received the
following note. "The most important point
is, of course, that yon should like one
another. I and my niece will visit the the
ater this evening, and you can just drop in
upon us in box number one."
As a matter of course the theater was
crammed. All the best paving places in
the house were filled in the evening with
a public mostly male, got up in a style Sel
dom seen even at the Royal opera itself.
Glasses were leveled on all sides in the di
rection of number one box, and eyes were
strained to catch the first glimpse of the
niece when she should appear in company
with Iht uncle; but uncles are proverbially
"wicked old men," acd, in the present case,
neither uncle nor niece was to be found,
and the disconsolate lovers of a fortune
