It may be remarked that do one knows
bis real name. That of John Smith is an
alias, and he fraDkly acnowledges that he
haa taken every precaution to conceal his
Identity. He visits nobody, but during
the past few years many people have been
to see him. He is a sort of local fad, and
the folks thereabout almost love him. The
old man's hair an J beard are white as
snow. He delights to chat with visitors,
and on pleasant Sundays of summer and
autumn the gronnds around his little cot
tage are covered wi ch scores of teams and
hundreds of visito-s. For the time being
the gronnds arc c inverted into a picnic
grove, and the old man shares the hospi
tality of bis visitors, tells them quaint
stories, and in' return they give him 'he
remnants of their feasts and little gratui
ties and purchase t le photographs of him
self and his cats.
In the winter the old man is a genuine
hermit, so far as human beiDgs are con
cerned, but in and t round his cabin he has
no less than a dozet cats, to say nothing of
tbe wildcats that every little while are
killed on the surrounding hills, and he is
as proud of "Jim lisk" and "Lady Ann"
as ever a fond mother was of her firstborn
twins. The house -A-bich lie occupies was
formerly a wooilchtpiier's shanty, and it is

"No, I don't go hunting any more," said
Peyton Brown to a party of traveling men
who were talking sjort at the Laclede. I
was over in Illinois some days ago and con
cluded to make a try for small game in
the Okaw bottoms. I discovered a large
flock of ducks leisurely swimming about
on the bosoci of the muddy stream, stand
ing on their heads and having a good time
generally. I era led through a briar
patch that made rm- look like an escaped
smallpox patient, and waded through a
morass up to my belt for 200 yards to get
a shot at them. When about forty yards
distant I turned lot se both barrels, killed
six and crippled five more. Only one of the
lot got away. I r early drowned myself
bagging nsy fame, came within an ace of
getting bit by a water moccasin that
looked to be a mile Ions, and lost a hun
dred dollar gun in the treacherous morass.
Just as I got tb? last dead duck in mv
pouch a farmer came out of a log cabin
that I hadn't, before obstrved, and 'lowed
as heow I'd puy for tbi-in ar ducks or he'd
know the reason why.' As he carried a
lingering eternity f a rflc on Lis shoulder
and was followed ly a bench legged bull
dog of cannibal ist c tendencies I forked
over a fiver and obtained permission to
nang myself before the kitchen fire until
the mnd baked on me. Then I started to
town through the woods, feeling like a
sheep killing dog caught with wool in his

Ue Tried to Interview Tennyson.
"I interviewed Lord Tennson once," said
E. M. Taylor, formerly an attache of The
Pall Mall Gazette, but now representing
British capitalists in America and making
temporary headquarters at the Southern.
"It was two years ago. I had long been an
admirer of the great poet, and chancing to
be in the neighborhood of his residence one
day I thought I would look in on him. I
rang the bell and sent in my card.
"The servant returned with tbe mess Reg
that Lord Tennyson was busy and could
not receive visitors that day. I had worked
on a New York paper before going to "Lun
non town' and of course I was not to be
bended off tbat way. I slipped a few shil
lings into the hand of the servant and
pumped him. I learned that his lordship
was extremely busy sitting in front of a
sea coal fire reading a newspaper. I also
learned that he was in the habit of of tak
ing a long walk between 12 and 1, and I de
cided to waylay him. Shortly after 13 he
sallied forth ir a great coat, with a pon
derous staff in his band. I overtook him a
couple of hundred yanls from bis door and
introduced myself. He looked at me,
grunted and walked on.
"I kept at his side and told him how 1
had enjoyed his latest production, inquired
after his health, turned up the collar of
his great coat for him, helped him over a
rough place in the walk and made myself,
as I thought, generally agreeable. I soon
discovered that I was doing all tbe talking.
Not a word could 1 get out of the great
man. He didn't even appear to hear me.
I was vexed, chagrined and felt like telling
him that his last production was--insufferable
rot, but I restrained myself. I learned
afterward that he would not speak to
strangers that my experience with the
author of 'inone' was by no means an
exceptional one. It was the only time in
all my newspaper experience that I ever
run my game to earth and failed to get an
interview of some kind." St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
