Make Htm Miutl or Put Hint Out.
I'nless we verv much mistake the
man, Governor AUjreld will not tritle
with - Chaplain Stephan. of Joaet
penitentiary. The executive of the
state should make this egotist either
bey his in j unctions or rhould tire him
bodilv. All state institutions, as the
governor has so wisely said, should
be kept free from sectarian bias.
The Chicago Pot well states the sit
If this man Chaplain Stephen, of
the Joliet penitentiary, is such a fel
low as he is described in the morning
papers he cannot be too .-wiftly or too
incontinently lircd .ut of office.
What are we to think of a pastor who
declares that only clergymen of hi.
own denomination (the Lutheran)
and one other denomination (the
Homan Catholic) h:ill teach in the
chapel ar Sundoy school of a state
institution? What of a little chap,
who. when he is admonished by the
governor that sueh discrimination
is hostile to the spirit of the consti
tution oj Illinois. iit-iie the gover
nor Viiid declares that he will -run
this business r.s he sees tit?''
dimply t'nis: Thai here is an ig
norant jackanapes in the livery of
the chufh. O: course Chaplain
Stephan does r.t speak for his core
ligionists, the Lutherans, who are a
nsibIe and law -abiding body of
t-ltizens: nor for the Koi.ian Catholic
citizens, who may be assumed to
know the law. No, he speaks for
himself. His idiocy is his own and
the penalty is also his own.
The penalty is easy to name.
Stephan should be kicked out with
all possible dispatch, and to Governor
Altgeld belongs the pleasure of kick
lie Won the Bet.
It was agreed among the dozen of
us in the passenger coach. says a writer
in the X. Y. Sun, that the woman oc
cupying a feat near the middle of the
car with her husband was the homeli
est woman we had ever seen. She was
ten years older than the man and
cross-eyed, had a hair lip. was almost
toothless and her nose had been seem
ingly smashed flat. , The man himself
was at least common good looking.
Three or four of us in the front end of
the car were sympathizing with him
in a soft and gentle way when he rose
up and came over to us and said:
"Gentlemen, you have been wonder
ing if that woman is my wife. Sh'e is.
You probably look upon her as the
homeliest woman on the earth. You
"Well," observed the Chicago man,
"it isn't just the thing to criticise a
man's wife before his face but if
"Oh, you can speak yeur mind with-'
out offense," interrupted the man.
"Then I would remark that if she
isn't the homeliest woman in this ter
restrial globe I should like to see the

We followed him in and there sat
four females, ranging in age from 20
to 30, who discounted her by 30 per

pick from the lot," quietly remarked
the man. "And now. if any of you
have a drop of whisky about you I'll
Every man of us handed over a full
flask and told him he was welcome to
every drop and the bottles besides.
Surprised the Old Gentleman.
A well-known citizen of Newport
was walking along Fourth street, near
Lawrence, on his way to the bridge,
whba he was accosted by a young lady
who came tripping down the stone
steps of one of the finest residences,
with the remark: "Pardon me, sir; but
may I ask you if you ever use tobacco
in any form?" "Xo, Miss," replied the
gentleman, "I have never used it in
any form whatever smoking.chewing,
or in snuff."
"Don't think me impertinent," con
tinued the young lady, "but may I ask
how old you are'r"'
The gentleman replied that he was
"May I kiss you?" she then asked,
and before the gentleman had a chance
to sar ves or no there was a resound
ing smack. This done.a little explana
tion was in order.
The young lady said that . she had
made a wager with her iutended .that
before the month was up she . would
kiss a man who never . iiaed the weed
in anv form. She had noticed him
pass the house daily for a long time,
and was satisfied from his general ap

r-CATINC DINNER MECHANICALLY.''
The. Walter Does Everything- but gwtb
low the Food and Drink.
On a recent evening a big man with
a hoavy walk entered a well-known
cafe on upper Broadway and sank
wearily into a chair at a table, says
the N. Y. Sun. He was about 50 years
old and had the appearance of a high
liver. His face had the peculiar purplish-red
color which is sometimes
ascribed to burgundy and sometimes
to champagne, but is always due to in
dulgence or tue appetite for good
things. His movements indicated that
he felt sluggish, and it would have
created no surprise in the observer to
have been told that he was liable to
apoplexy. He seemed preoccupied, anil
glanced listlessly about the room
Presently a waiter came up to him.
He was about the same are as the
man at the table, but was quick and
"Good morning, Mr. Jones," he said
briskly. "We have some nice turtle
soup and some excellent roast grouse."
"AH right. James, said the other.
"Some potatoes chaieau and a let
The waiter went away and returned
presently with some illustrated papers,
wnicn tne man took troru him without
so much as looking up. The soup was
Drougnt on ami ladle. I out bv the
waiter, who then took the napkin and
spread it caretuilv over the man s lap.
He brought on a glass of sherry, al

began to eat his soup greedily.

sir." said the waiter, respectfully.
."ueeaanicaiiv the diner reached out
and carried the glass to his lips. The
waiter watched him as carefully as a
mother does her child, tilled the" "lasa
of water when it was empty, replaced
the napkin when it slipped down, and
in other ways saw to it that the diner
wj comfortable. The soup was fol
lowed bv the roast, potatoes, and some
celerv. The latter had not been or-
lereti, either. The jrrouse w as carved
by the waiter, who also served the po
tatoes and picked out the tender pieces
"Io you want yourchampane. sir."
What cbanipajrne?" demanded the
diner, tiueru'ousl v.
"You have haif a bottle left from last
"Bring H on, then."
The waiter returned with ha'.f
empty bottle. A rubber cork tightly
pressed into the mouth had preserved
the sparkle. Through the remainder
of the meal the waiter never relaxed,
his watchfulness, although lie hail io
wait on two other tables. When the
diner had linished Lis coffee he started
to rise. The waiter, w ho happened to
be at another table, rushed' to his
ait a moment, Mr. Jones." he
said: "you must take your pepsin."
"Then w iiv the devil don't vou bring
"Bight away, sir."
Iu a nio:ne:it he had rushed out of
the room ami relumed speedily with a
bottle aud a spoon. He mixed up a
dose in a glass and handed it to the
man, who drank it wiih a wry face.
Then the waiter brought a liuger bowl
and a cigar, of w hich he cut olT th"
end. He waited until the man had
slowly put it between hi lips ruid theu
he struck a match and applied the
light. The man pulled so slowiy that
the match had burned down to tho
waiter's linger;- and scorched them be
fore tiie cigar was thoroughly lighted.
The waiter now helped the man on
with his overcoat, and handed him his
"Good-n:j;ht, Mr. Jones," said siie
waiter, as the man toddled away. An
indistinct mumbling was the ouly re
ply. The head waiter explained. "That
man Jones," said he, -has been com
ing here for fifteen years and always
has the same waiter. He's a grouty
man, but not bad hearted. He's a
chronic dyspeptic, but you see he
won't deny himself much. You no
ticed he didu't tip the waiter? That's
because he pays him once a week and
generously. He pays his meal checks
the same way. The waiter knows his
habits absolutely, and, as you saw,
does not require any orders. He
knows that he wants certain things al
ways, and understands his tastes well
enough to be able to suggest a satis
factory menu every time. I have an
idea the old fellow "will remember his
waiter in his will. He gives him lots
of presents, as well he might, for the
waiter does about everything except
eat and drink for him."
Spoony and Didn't Care Who Knew.
The newly wedded couple .boarded
the train at a village station and a
crowd of about a hundred people saw
them off. The groom was a strapping
young fellow, with sunburned face
and hands and bear's grease on his
hair, while the bride might have been
the "hired gal" on the same farm.
They had no sooner taken a seat than
he put his arm around her and began
to caress one of her hands. A voice in
rear of them cried out "Spoons!" but
the bridegroom gave no sign. Pretty
soon he pulled her head over on his
shoulder and there was a titter from
the rear of the car. The head stayed
right there, however, and Josh got
both her hands in his one paw. Three
or four voices cried out "Oh!" aud
"Ah!" but it was fully two minutes be
fore he tenderly pushed her away and
rose up and looked around and said:
"We are married. Jt was a case of
luv. We sparked fur seven years.
She's my violet and I'm her towerin'
oak. We've got 180 miles to go and
we are goin' to spoon every durned
rod of it and if thar's any critter here
who thinks he cau't staud it he kin git

liar that I can do nothing with him."
"Comes natural to him. I suppose."

White Lead is best ; properly applied
it will not scale, chip, chalk, or rub
off; it firmly adheres to the wood and
forms a permanent base for repainting;.
Paints which peel or scale have to be
removed by scraping; or burning before
satisfactory repainting; can be done.
When buying: it is important to obtain
properly made. Time has proven that
white lead made by the " Old Dutch "
process of slow corrosion possesses
qualities that cannot be obtained by
any other method of manufacture. This
process consumes four to six months
time, and produces the brands that
have given White Lead its character
as the standard paint.
"Southern" "Red Seal"
are standard brands of strictly pure
Lead made by the " Old Dutch " pro
cess. You get the best in buying them.
Vou can produce any desired color by
tinting these brands of white lead with
