Gkst seems to have no trouble with
pulling the wool ever tbe eyes of the
party managers, but when it comes to
the party to say nothing of the people
then it will be different.
It seems that the withdrawal of that
suit of Gest's was the only thing neces
sary to his formal declaration of candi-
cacy. Last night the party managers did
the rest but there are othsr counties
jet to be heard from.
Now that things have been fixed up
for Gest as far as Kock island is con
cerned and that Mr. Gest has formally
r.nnapnted to run. it mav be asked how
many of tbe rank and file of the party
were in it in last night's cut and dried
Gkst bad his turn when he went about
like a bear with a sore head snubbing
everybody that did not vote for him the
last time, and he carried his spiteful dis
position toward everyone to the extent
of bringing a big suit against tbe city.
He has withdrawn it since finding out it
was about as unpopular a thing as be
could have done, but tbe act remains.and
that is what he will be judged by.

AN AMUSING EXPERIENCE OF ONE
rtrendlng Things That Conspire to
Make a Young; Man Miserable.
"There are discomforts connected with '
getting married that few people know any
thing about, except the bridegrooms," re
marked a young New Yorker who had re
cently cone through the experience.
"I did not suppose the honeymoon perioa
had any drawbacks," ventured the bach- 1
"Well, it has some curious incidentals -
that I never dreamed of. After the public (
announcements of the date of my wedding
they appeared in most of the city papers
I began to receive a steady stream of cir- j
culars. There were circulars lrom naoer-
dashers, shoe stores and florists, and two
applications from real estate agents to
show flats, and three days before my wed
ding arrived a printed slip, ostensibly a
cutting from a newspaper. This was truly

some account of myself. My brief and un
eventful career was padded up to heroic
size; every phase of it that could appeal to
vanity was dwelt upon, and just as some
most agreeable remarks were being made
about my personal appearance, 'the arti
cle had been clipped, and I was informed
by an accompanying circular that I could j
obtain copies of the paper, one or any num
ber, by sending two dollars to a certain box
at the New York postoflire.
Of course I ignored this tricky scheme.
though as a device for bleeding the vain it
was most interesting, but on my return to
New York after the affair was all over my
real woes began. The legitimate press as

were fourteen notices of my marriage, and
that I could have them all for a considera
I devoted 'my first hour after returning
to business to this class of applicants
when a visitor was announced. He turned
out to be an insurance agent, and for five
days I talked insurance, read insurance,
dreamed insurance. The elevator brought
agents in person, the mail brought their
letters. I even received two telegrams on
the subject. From one company alone
came four different canvassers. My busi
ness was interrupted and my patience was
exhausted. Late on the sixth day of this
plague, when I was in no mood for trifling,
the door of my outer office opened, and a
small man wit h red whiskers and specta
cles came slowly in.
" 'It's no use to come in any farther,' I
called to him. 'I know your company.
There have been four other men ahead of
you, so it's no use. There's an elevator in
the hall. You can ride down in it free,
my friend, but if you say insurance around

redheaded man said:
" 'Yon was married last month?'
" 'I was. Now, ask my age. I suggested,
'and compute my chances of life.'
'"Well, you married my niece,' contin
ued the redheaded man. 'I've just been
calling at yonr house, and she sent me
down to surprise you. I reckon it's the
other way, nnd now I'll go out and take
that free elevator.'

Trivial Thoughts iu Great Iiasters.
It happens now and then that persons
concerned in some terrible tragedy per
sistently fix the mind on a trivial event
quite unconnected with the great fact.
One of the wounded in a railway disaster
in New England several years ago was
chiefly occupied not with his serious in
juries, but with the fact that he had in his
possession a book from a circulating li
brary, and that it ought to be returned at
once. Youth's Companion.

Miners Who Took a Vital Interest In
All Parts or the IMay A Housing; Re
ception Given as Traveling Company in
the Early Days of Gold Mining.
Four years ago I was a member of a
company trax'eling through the small
towns of the far west, when our advance
agent, passing a large mining camp en
route to Rome distant town, stopped over
for a few hours and happened to "tell a
flattering tale" regarding the merits of
the company he represented.
"Bring 'em here and let 'em play fur
us fur a week," suggested one of the min
ers, acting on a happy inspiration. And
all bis companions "chipped in," warming
to enthusiasm over the idea.
"Why, you haven't any accommodation
for them," objected the agent. "You've
no theater, no place for them to live."
"Never you mind that, stranger," said
the man of inspiration. "We'll rig up a
theater an a hotel without turning a hair.
You just trot your people out an we'll give
'em a guarantee of $150 a night, won't we,
"Two hundred!" shouted another en
thusiast. "Done at $200. I'll engage to have my
people here for a week at that rate."
"Got any real women in yer show? No
men masqueradin as girls?" asked some
body anxiously. And when the camp was
officially informed that there were three
young and pretty women in the company
the enthusiasm knew no bounds. None of
the "boys" bad even seen a woman for
many a month, some of them not for years.
It was Monday afternoon when we ar
rived on the outskirts of the camp, set
down, as it was, among the fastnesses of
the Rocky mountains, and as we were to
open that night in the comedy-drama of
"M'liss" we had little enough time for
resting after our tiresome journey. And
we were so weary, so travel stained and so
discouraged! But our welcome went far
toward restoring us. Outside the camp
we were met by a deputation with cheers
and acclamations, which we women were
informed were intended in honor of us.
The men crowded about as we dismounted,
and fought among each other for the high
privilege of helping us to descend.
"Reckon ye must lie powerful tuckered
out," said a big southerner respectfully
to me. "Say, won't ye hev a drop o' some
thin, mum?" handing me his flask. He
was evidently much hurt at my refusal,
and 1 was obliged to explain my reasons in
the most delicate manner.
Our stage consisted of rough planks laid
upon the ground. Frames were erected
around three sides of this primitive plat
form for the purpose of sketching the
necessary scenery. Pieces of canvas sewn
together formed a species of curtain, and
we needed no "sky borders," as our sole
roof was the dark, star gemmed heavens.
The stage was flanked by a row of tin
pans filled with tallow, in which a wick
was inserted, and behold! we had foot
lights warranted to burn throughout the
evening's performance. On each side of
the "theater" was a tent, one for the ladies
and one for the gentlemen, and t hese were
intended not only as our dressing rooms,
but our bedchambers, dining and drawing
rooms as well during our week's sojourn
in the wilderness. Our audience found
seats upon the ground and quarreled for
those nearest the stage, while woe le unto
any misguided man who attempted to ob
tain more than his share of enjoyment by
elevating himself above the heads of his
As I said, our first night's entertain
ment was "M'liss." The piece (which
well suited the audience, who were capa
ble of judging its merits and demerits for
what they were worth) went splendidly
until the scene where the Mexican ap
proaches stealthily behind the heroine to
abduct her. The "villain" was a particu
larly inoffensive youth, greatly beloved by
every memler of the company. Hut his
"make up was wicked in the extreme
his complexion made swarthy, his black
wig wrapped in a gaudy handkerchief un
der his soft hat, rings in his ears, a grew
6ome mustache obscuring his lips, and a
full Mexican costume adding to his san
Our one musician played ' villain mu
sic" (pink, plunk, plink!) on his violin as
this appalling apparition tiptoed toward
the unsuspecting M'lss, and in another
moment the maiden's head would have
been enveloped in a scarf, preparatory to
bearing her struggling form away, when a
startling interruption delayed the commis
sion of the crime. Up in front of the stage
opening sprang a burly miner, fire in his
eye and a pistol loaded and cocked in his
"You jest dare to tech thet gal, you dog
of a greaser, an you'll go to kingdom
come!" he shouted in stentorian tones,
which we all - instinctively felt "meant
Needless to say the Mexican abandoned
his base project at once and went in an op
posite direction without "standing on the
order of his going."
"It's only in the play!" he endeavored to
explain, but without avail.
"Play or no play, durn me ef I'll set still
an Bee an or'nary skunk like you lay your
hands on a woman!" was tbe ominous
And we realized that the entire camp
stood ready to back up M'liss' defender.
Then M'liss herself came to the rescue.
Taking the Mexican by the hand she led
him down to the sputtering footlights.
"This is a very good friend of mine in
private life," she said.
"It is only on the stage that he treats me
badly, and then it is but the business of
the rtlay. which calls for it. I cannot go on
with my part unless you allow him to do
his, which I am sure you will, when I tell
you that I desire it."
A rousine cheer answered her impromptu
speech and tbe mutinous miner put his
pistol reluctantly in its place, "ii ye say
ye want the cuss to git, ye ne can nev ye,"
he grumbled, "but you jest say the word,
an I'll blow him as high as the sky."
After this rather exciting little incident
the play was allowed to proceed without
interruption, althongh, it is hardly neces
sary to state, the "villain" had never felt
less heart in his villainy nor bo acutely
realized that "virtue was its own reward."
