One peculiarity of the river travel
is that almost all the passenger trav

be no passengers going up. It is an
anomalous condition of the business,
and it is not easy from the surface to
see the reason for it. People might
naturally bo Htipjxiscd to take the

The oilici.tl organ of the M. W. A.,
the Woodman, has been ruled out of
the mail as second class matter by
the postotliee department. This an
nouncement will be received with
genuine regret by the 80,000 mem
bers of tin order, in the country,
many of whom will be very apt to re
gard the ac ion of the department as
an injustici to the order and all will
unite in the hope that, upon more
careful consideration of the matter
the order m.iy be recalled and the or
gan of the Woodmen admitted as
heretofore as second class mat
ter. Under the revised laws, ser
vice of assessmsnt notices must
be made through publication in
the columns of the official
organ of the order, and hence one
may readily imagine the hardship
that the enforcement would work to
an order that is purely beneficiary in
its character of a ruling that would
compel the additional expenditure
exacted in mailing it as third class.
Otto's band came up from Musca

of Pythias gathering in Muscatine,
and they were jubilating. For com

Keating the Theaters.
"It seems to me," said the manager of
one of the largest Droadway theaters, "that
the free pass fi;nl is worse than ever this
season. The very worse specimen came
aloDg to night. He had two young women
with him undnsked me in a very ofTliuno
manner for three good seats.
"Would you mind telling mc who you
are?" I asked.
"Why, certaii.ly. My father is the head
piano tuner in 's factory."
"Well, if I had a bouncer two weeks
ago," said another manager, "I would have
made him cam his wages on a fellow that
fooled me. This fellow was a big fine look
ing German, who told me that he repre
sented several ft reign papers and asked for
three seats. I told hint that I could hardly
push the courtet ies of the house so far, but
that I would give him a seat for himself. I
wrote on the bat k of his card 'one reserve.'
He thanked me and went out to the lobby,
and I forgot all about him.
"But the nesi morning while we were
fixing up the. r-ceipts I was paralyzed to
find that this fellow's ami hud gone for a
box. He had pot a 'd' on the 'reserve' and
added 'box' in a very good imitation of my
writing." New Vork World.

Rare specimens of orchids which are
sought for in distant lands and subjected
to all the risks of importation are not
cheap. Several years ago an English col
lector. Baron Schroeder, paid over fl,600
for a single specimeuof Cypripedium stonei,
a native of Borneo. Although possessing
several specimens of this species, the ardent
collector was anxious to keep the dealers
from obtaining possession of it, and thu9
paid so extravagant a sum to hold it all his
own. There are many orchid enthusiasts
who have longed in vain for the possession
of a flower tlity consider beyond their reach,
a common and erroneous idea being that
these superb beauties of the tropical and
semitropical world are the luxury of the
very rich, that they only flourish in houses
built specially for them and in a tempera
ture akin to that of a Turkish bath, and
that they require the constant supervision
of a gardener skilled in their culture.
Kancy M. Waddle in Indies' Home Jour
nal. Presidential Salute Is Twenty-one tiana,
I have often wondered why the recog
nized presidential salute is Si guns, and
thinking that an explanation of the same
might interest your readers looked the
matter up, with the following result,
a quotation from Hanson's "Facts, and
Fancies:" "The United States national sa
lute is a gun for each state; for the presi
dent 21 guns, 17 fur the vice president, 15
for cabinet officers, governors, etc Origi
nally the president was saluted with as
many guns as there were Kates in the
Union. This idea was finally abandoned in
the year 1S1U, when there were exactly 21
states, the commissioners deciding that
hereafter 1 guns shall lie the national
presidential salute.' "St. Ixiuis Republic.
