Edwardsville Intelligencer: The
Indiana legislature has reduced the
state tax assessment for 193 about
245,000 under what it was in 1892.

that the whole tax is more than $5,

will do as well, the tax payers of the
state will 1h very agreeably sur

A Man Who Boobt a Hotel aad Trto4

There is working on tha California
street cable system a man who has had
considerable ups ana downs as mis

he had an income ten times as great,

"The boys on the road call him 'Lord"
Harrington on account of his looks,
speech and action. It is knows that
he is verv highly connected in Eng
land. The one story known about him is:
Harrington went to a Florida watering
resort shortly after his arrival in this
country five years ago. What his real
name was no one knew; everybody
knew, however, that he had lately
come into a large inheritance and was
rolling in money. Gossip said he vis
ited the Florida" watering place to re
cuperate his shattered health.
He had been at the hotel for eight
days and for eight days he had ordered
hard-boiled eggs, but each morning
the waiter urbanely returned with the
eggs boiled "medium." Every morn
ing Harrington had explained at length
that he wanted the eggs cooked that
wav in order to slice them and treat
them after the fashion of the natives
of the Higher Hydrabad. But the col
ored waiter stoically ignored the order
and steadfastly brought in the eggs
boiled medium". Oa the eighth morn
ing Harrington lost patience and an
grily sent for the proprietor.
"Why are my eggs" not boiled as I
ordered?" he demanded.
The proprietor sbrugged his should
ers. -Kg boiled medium are good
enough for anybody," was all he vouch
safed. "I like the'mthat way and I'm
running this hotel to suit myself."
.Then I cannot get hard egg?" de
manded the indignant guest.
-Xot while I am bossing the place."
declared the independent American
-What do you ask for the hotel?"
asked the Englishman.
"Thirty thousand dollars." was the

"Now, Sambo, give me hard-boiled
Sambo eyed the proprietor interro
gatively. "Give the gentleman what he wants
now, Sam," was the answer. "He is
the boss from now oa."
Harrington gave a check for
000 and spent $20,003 improving the
premises in order to give a promising
background to the hard-boiled eggs,
sliced and treated after the manner of
the natives of Higher Hydrabad. But
his scheme never worked. At the end
of the season the sheritT swooped
down on the premises and they passed
into the hands of a man who laughed
to scorn sliced hard-boiled eggs treated
after the manner of the natives of

Sirs: I would beg to acknowledge re
ceipt of packape containing- eye
glasses and furthermore consider it
my duty to thank you for the relief I
have experienced through the tame.
The many leading Oculists of New
York and elsewhere I have consulted
were onable even to find the ailment
wherewith I suffered, much less to
cure the same; your fckill has proved
itself, for after ubing- the lenses you
fitted me with I was relieved im
mediately; not only can now read
without exertion, but do not suffer
any more with my former severe head
aches. I sincerely hope that you may bene
fit many more as you have me and
would again express my tbar.ks for
the good you have done me. I remain
yours very sincerely.

the ordinary examination of opticians

were truly wonderful as I had never

my eyes have given me, I feel con
