A Story of Wordsworth.
The great predcct-.wor cf Tennyson in the
laureateship, it is well known, was in the
habit of walking abort nt-ar IJydul repeat
ing passages from t jp poems which he was
coiupoaiiiR at the time. This habit the cot
tagers called "goiu" liooing about," and
not a few of them thought that it was a
sign of something more than eccentricity.

everybody, genii - ::nl simple, had a crack

hear that Mrs. Wordsworth is a gajly

Talk Abt Candidates Already Being
The smoke of the battle of the ballots,
which raged all over the country in the
early part of November with results so
generally disastrous to one side, has
scsn-ely cleared away when preparations
begin making for an affray of purely
local import to occur next spring. For
this inevitable encounter both the op
posing forces are preparing with i qual
veal. While cue side is industriously
Hying its plans to hold the fort, the
cher is do less determinedly mapping
out its campaign to lay siege o and re
gain the seat o2 government, municipal,

For city clerk there is no lack of can

one more term before surrendering tbe
office. J. Alex Montgomery would be
plea-ed, bswever, to relieve bim at the
expiration of hi9 present term But there
is an excellent field from which to pick
the winner, when such available, amoly
qualified democrats as Geor e B. Brown
