IN THE PlXEY FORKST,
We aro now flyint; through the resin
ons woods, along a latie of pines bo dark
and green and somber that there's some
thing abont it that is strangely sad but
restful, like the cool shadows of an easy
fitting grave at the close of a toilsome
life. There's a gentle, soothing lullaby
in its graceful, di,.nified branches and
their soft sigh tha; comes to your worn
senses like the well kempt and soothing

But let us return. Wo havo been for
days in the lumber region, i. e., the
spinal column of it. At every little sta
tion we are joined by lumbermen, most
ly foreigners, wearing the picturesque
costumes of the camp. We saw the
Berry Wall of the pine region yesterday.
He wore a new buckskin shirt, fluted
at the seams, and a pair of woolen
panties or over-underwear knitted from,
the worsted remnants of a big yarn
carnival, 1 judj-d. They were tho
most lurid trou rs I ever saw. Wher
ever he-went you eould almost seem to
smell something burning. It was a
woolen kaleidescope which reminded
one of a picture of a volcanic eruption
executed by an i.itemperato wagon
underneath the clothes I have named
above ho had all fie other clothes he
had ever owned since he grew up. This
gave him a choked and suffocating ap
pearance, and gave rise to tho romark,
in the Scandinavian dialect: 'l gort
too many pantses on. Dat's bc-
corse I svet so."
The lumtierman ca Ties a valise made
of a two bushel grain bag fastened to
gether by a top nml bottom corner so
that lie can slinp; it over his shoulder.
In this, 1 think, he bus a pair of 1k:ivv

The Frenchman tol 1 of a few things,

The Norske told wiiat he had, and in
the meantime they j tilled hard on the

we crossed a trestle t hey were both ap

I spent two weeks in a lumber camp
once by advice of my physicians. They
said I needed pure air and a good deal
of it. Every evening around a big hot

stove, and so I went back home where

I met a man yesterday who looked
like Ignatius Donnelly. I am told that
it was Donnelly. He said that senators
ought to be chosen by the popular vote.
Orchestra seats in the senate are too
high now, he said, considering the char
acter of tho entertainment. He said wo
ought to be more careful, too, in tho
manner of inviting men to fill important
offices. Out in Leadville there was an
elderly German whom we will call Mr.
Frankfurter, for that was not tho name
of our hero. He was concerned with
Mr. Tabor at the time the big strike was
Itado which turned them into million
tares. One evening Mr. Frankfurter was
prowling around the same old lager beer
place where he loved to linger before
his prosperity. He was talking with
Colonel Vowler, of Buckskin.
"By tho way, Frankfurter," says
Yowler. "are you going to the big ban
kef:" He always called it "banket."
"Vot banket?"' says Frankfurter.
"Why, the banket up to TaWs. All
the great men of Colorado will lie there,
and all of the gentlemen of Leadville."
"Py kolly, is dot posseaible? I get uo
inwite for dot banket."
"Why. yon aro a partner of Tabor's,

, You are all right, colonel. By Chinks!
yon will be the first man I will inwite!"
The presidential battle is near enough
to the northwest so that the occasional
boom of a big gun is heard above tho
squeal of the planing mill, the squeak
of the logging sled and the roar of the
The presidential campaign costs too
much and comes too often, but it has a
healthful effect. It has the same effect
on the republic that a well agitated cis

becomes offensive if j'rmitted to stand
perfectly stagnant for too long. Let in
tho light and air and you prevent decay.

over a kingdom or an empire. It is said

have never been the same, I can see, in
his estimation. At the club also one
time I asked him what he would have
and he ordered a little Shetland pony
of caraway sirup while I ordered a
schooner of beer, for it was a warm day
and I was awful dry. I noticed that he
did not talk any more for I am a keen
observer and so I judge that this had
something to do with the way I have
been treated. At his house once also
he passed a porcelain recepjacle around
while we were smoking, and when he
came to me and held it toward me I
flipped the ashes of my cigar into it.
I was told afterward that it was a bon
bonniere. I wrote him a letter abont it
afterward, bnt it was never answered.
At the time I was married I wrote
him to attend to the printing and send
the bill to me, bnt he never did it.
My great ambition now is to be his
mortgagee and pester him on interest
days. If I have got to associate with
tradespeople and not have any refined
fun, let me tackle my job with a good
grace and content myself with lieing a
low workingman with no soul. But it
is hard, Mac it is hard to be driven
from your purlieus this way. Remem
ber that whatever I am after this, you
and Mrs. De Feyster Bergamot have
made me. Recollect, Mac, that I gave
you the chance to make something of
me. You knew six years ago that I was
living in New Y'ork, for I wrote yon
from the store and told you we were
coming there to live. But did you call

No, Mac; yon take the responsibility

of your disapproval on our brows. You

in the morgue, Mr. McAllister, with my
tired hands crossed over my ieaceful
breast and a l;:rge 2iK)-poun.l piece of
