The only objection the New York
World offers to an extra session of
concp-ess is the fact that it will inter
rupt the literary labors of Hon. Tim
Campbell anil defer the publication
of his norel on New York society.
E. M. Gadsdex. of Atlanta, Ga.,
has been appointed superintendent of
the money order system of the post
oflice department, vice C. E. Mac
Donald, resided. The latter is the
father of the money order system and
has been at its head since its incep
tion in 164.
The speaker of the Illinois house,
Hon. Clayton E. Crafts, was governor
of Illinois the whole of Wednesday.
Gov. Altgeld was out of the state,
having been called to Mansfield, O.,
by the death of his mother, and Lieut.
Gov. Gill is in California. Mr.
Crafts, by the constitution was gov.

Qiixcv Herald: William Penn
Nixon signed the petition for the
anarchists' pardon. He is editor of
the Chicago Inter Ocean. The Inter
Ocean fumes and froths with pre
tended indignation over Altgeld'a
action in pardoning them. Now did
William Penn really mean it when
he asked the governor to pardon
them, and is this pseudo-froth for po
litical effect, or if not, what?
It looks as thongh Utah will be ad
mitted to statehood by the next con
gress, although the reported raising
of 1,000,0 0 by the Mormon church
to secure that end is undoubtedly a
canard of the worst type. Utah has
been knocking for admission into the
Union as a state for a long time, and
it is generally conceded at Washing
ton that its wish will soon be grati
fied. Former opponents of the terri
tory have changed front on the ques
tion, as the fear that polygamy would
thereby be placed beyond the reach
of federal authority, seems to have
been largely removed from the minds
of the leaders in-con"Tes6.
The Speaker and Springer.
It is estimated in dispatches to the
Times from Washington that in the
creation of committees of the present
house Mr. Crisp, who will undoubt
edly be elected speaker, proposes to
substitute for Mr. Springer, of Illi
nois, as chairman of the committee
on ways and means, Mr. Wilson, of
The Times recognizes in the West
Virginia a man well equipped, es
pecially if it is the purpose of the
democratic party to redeem its prom
ises at the Chicago convention in
reference to tariff legislation. "The
name of Mr. Springer," says the
Times correspondent, "will probably
be presented to the speaker by
friends of the Illinois congressman,
but the present plan involves drop
ping him, and the fact that he is in
ill health will be urged as a reason
for substituting Mr. Wilson."
Mr. Springer was a candidate for
apcaker of the last house, entering
against Mr. Crisp and other contest
ants. That Mr. Crisp was success
ful was due largely to the action of
Mr. Springer and his friends. In the
performance of a public duty consid
erations of friendship have no place,
but human nature is frail and these
abstract declarations ought not to
count where friendship works no
detriment to the public interest.
Mr. Crisp owes much to Mr. Spring
er, and ought not to disappoint a
reasonable expectation upon Mr.
Springer's part that he shall be prop
If it is true, however, that Mr.
Springer's health is no better now
than it was at the last session it will
be a relief for him to be free of the
onerous duties of the chairmanship
of the committee on wave and means.
Queerest ot Fight.
A remarkable fight occurred lately
in North Carolina near the South
Carolina line. Two men, named
Trout and Hutchins, were removing a
beehive, about which they wrapped a
cloth. Two men named McDaniels
met them, and a quarrel and fight
followed. Hutchins stripped the cloth
from the hive and, placing it over his
head, held the hive in front as he ad
vanced toward the McDaniels. Bees
poured ont and savagely attacked the
latter, who had to retreat One of
them shot Hutchins in the shoulder,
but he advanced with his novel Gatling'
gun, and, aided by the bees, drove
the McDaniels over the line into
Caahton of Haaks That Go Throat, a
Great Deal of "Red Tape."
Ea&k castiers and tellers are rnvari
Vly ffrat sticklers for identification.
Even when -.heir judgment, added by
some pecnlfcvT circumstance, tells them
that an atrxriute personal identifica
tion is unne :essary, they insist on go
ing through the form. A gentleman
of high cht racter, who lives in New
York found himself obliged to get i
drajt cashed at a bank in a small New
England to vn some time ago. The
town was the place of the gentleman's
early home, and he was known and re
spected by a '.most every resident. But
the teller, after glancing at the sig
nature on the draft said briskly:
"You will have to be identified."
"Don't you know me?" asked the
presenter of the draft.
"No. sir," replied the teller.
"Well, I ata acquainted with pretty
nearly ererybody in town," said the
gentleman. "There is Mr. H -,"
mentioning the same of the leading
merchant of the place, whose store
was a few rols from the bank.
"All right," said the teller, oblig
ingly, "I will go over there with you,"
and locking the money drawer, he put
his hat on and walked across the
street with vae presenter of the draft
The merchant was sunning himself in
the doorway of his Btore. "Say, do
you know this man?"' asked the teller.
"Yes, sir, I an proud to know him,"
was the quid reply. Without another
word the teller returned to the bank
and cashed tl e draft The New York
man, conside.-ably amused, asked, as
he pocketed the money: "Is that
what you cat an identification? Why,
you did not even ask Mr. n what
my name was."
"Oh, that's all right," answered the
teller, genial'.y; "I just wanted to find
somebody who knew you."
RACING FOR A MEAL.
How a Clay Bank" none Foaled
Driver and Xanched ny.
It was an eld clay bank cart-horse
that drew a cowd and made his driver
lose what religion he ever had in
Philadelphia, the other morning. The
animal evidently had but lit tie or
nothing to et for .several days, and
his actions dc monstrated that he was
going to get Lis fill while there was a
A wagon 1 ed with hay was on the
car track ahead of the clay bank
horse. The .day bank scented the
hay, and though the cart was ladca
with bricks, smarted after the fodder
at a speed that would have warmed
the hearts oi Gloucester's habitues.
The driver pi lied the reins and the
clay bank ran and the faster his speed
the nearer can e the quarry. The driver
on the hay wagon heard the noise of
clattering hoofs and shouting of the
crowd behind, and he whipped up his
team, evident y fearing t hat destruc- ,
tion was on b.s heels.
The race for two squares was excit
ing and the crowd became larger and
the clay bank kept up his speed in
such a fashion that he soon forced his
head deep in the hay. The crowd
cheered and still the driver said words
that mijrht hare set fire to the hay, and
pulled on the lines to try to induce the
clay bank to leave the unexpected
meal, but in vain.
Finally the hay wagon came to a
stop and the c'.ay bank seemed to ap
preciate it, for he munched the dried
grass for nearly five minutes before he
could be persuided to leave it When,
he drew out of the track he turned his
head around to the crowd and delib
erately winked, as much as to 6ay that
he had fooled the driver that time and
got a meal into the bargain.
Made Him I onbt of OmnUcienea.
A little hoy, son of the mast exem
plary parents, wanted a bicycle, and
kept the matter constantly before the
conderation of the family purchasing
agent His mtl-ier told him to pray
for the desired gift and that night a
retition was sent up in the most per
suasive of chiliish voices. While the
little fellow slept a tricycle was
smuggled into his room and placed be
side his bed. In the morning the
father and mother were concealed
within hearing to learn how the little
hopeful would accept the answer to
his prayer. H rolled over, fastened
his staring blui; eyes upon the miracu
lous appearance, and in a surprised
tone said: "Duod dracious, Mr. Dod,
don't you knov the difference 'tween
a bicycle and a tricycle yet?"
An Inipt esalonlKt Sketch.
One of the good deacons of a certain
church is also the superintendent of
the Sunday schuol, and although he is
r.ot aD artist h; frequently illustrates
points in the lesson by the use of the
blackboard. Having drawn the rep
resentation of a clown one Sunday,
much after the stereotyped style of all
such, appendages, he said "Now,
which or.e of tie little folks can tell
me what this is .'"' Several raised their
hunds, but the superintendent's eye
was caught by a little fellow in the
front scat "Veil, Johnnie, you may
tell." Proud oi his distinction above
bis fellows the boy rose smilingly and
shouted: "A pin cushion."

Inquiries as to what was conducive

SURRODXDED BY MYSTERY!
A Great Mistake.
A recent discovery Is that headache,
dizziness, dullness, confusion of the mind,

centers which supply the brain with nerve
force; that Indigestion, dyspepsia, neuralgia,
wind !n stomach, etc., arise from the derange
ment of the nerve centers supply in; these or

true of many disease of the heart and lunzs.
