on T intern ute's farm for breeding pur

court tho witness was being hypnotized
by the complainant, Winterinute. Judge
Sandford did not seem to consider the
objection seriously. The examination
was ordere.l continued and the witness
asked mom questions, but he still seemed
confused. Again Stinson arose and
called the -ourt's attention to tho wit

At. International Episode.
An intt niational incident of an un
usual and amusing sort lias given inter
est to the news of the week from Can
ada. Admiral Magnaghi arrived at
Montreal with his ship Etna, and as he
dropjed anchor he fired a number of
guns prescribed by naval etiquette as
salute to the flag of a friendly nation.
Bnt Montreal has a mayor who does not
recognize the kingdom of Italy, and by
his orders the salute was not returned.
It is understood that he bases his refusal
to recognize King Humbert on the
ground that Victor Emanuel wronged
the head f the church of which he is a
faithful Member, and that the king of
Italy is, tl erefore, in some way a usurper.
The mayor of Montreal is evidently a
long way behind tho times. But Ad
miral Magnaghi is not, and ho forthwith
telegraph.'d the Ottawa government, de
manding that the prescribed amount of
powder 1)-? burned in honor of the Italian
flag, and intimating that unless this
were don 3 without further offensive de
lay he kImuKI feel compelled to resent
the indig lity by sailing right away out
of the St. Lawrence. So tho premier at
Ottawa t rdered the mayor at Montreal
to tiro t le salute, the admiral is ap
peased, and the international incident is
closed. Boston Commonwealth.

The sti.rs and stripes are as familiar
to Irish eyes as the flag of green, but not
often is ".he symbol of the United States
of Amerxa seen on an American battle
ship in Dublin bay. A warship is re
garded lis a part of the territory of the
state to which it belongs, an3 therefore
the Chit ago may be looked upon as the
part of tho great country in which so
many of our people have found a home,
and not .1 few of them have found fame
and fort ane. It was only natural, there
fore, th it her advent to our shores
should 'iave stirred Irish hearts, and
that the flag flying above her should
have conjured up visions of battle days
when side by side with it was carried
the flag of green. Ireland gave Barry
to the American navy, and the blood of
Old Iroi. sides coursed through the veins
of Charles Stewart Parnell, and tho
Irish njituro would have ceased to be
Irish if our warmest affections were not
successfully appealed to by tho sight of
part of i.he armed force which the genius
of Barry helped to create and of the flag
under which the grandfather of the
Irish leader served and fought. United

A Singular State of Affairs.
Doubtless it is in the interest of the
welfare of all our people that banks, the
doors of which art open' for business and
which are ready to receive deposits,
have flatly refused to honor the checks
of their depositors notwithstanding they
have the money with which to pay them,
but it is a most singular state of affairs,
and the docility with which tho depos
itors have accepted the situation is sur
prising. The contract between the bank and
the depositor provides that tho bank will
take charge of the depositor's funds and
ray them otit on the depositor's check.
The assumption that the bank may at
any time, in the exercise of its own dis
cretion, forcibly withhold the deposit
or's projierty from him is not contem
plated by the terms of the contract usu
ally made between the parties. The de
positor has not authorized the bank to
do more or anything else than care for
his money and pay it out on his check.
Under ordinary circumstances tho re
fusal of a bank to honor the check of its
depositor when it admits that the money
is in its possession and belongs to the de
positor, would be accepted as tin evi
dence that the bank is itself bankrupt.
This method of preventing a run on tho
bank is certainly quite effective.
Tho good fpirit in which the depositor
accepts the inconvenience to which ho is
thus subjected is a strong evidence of
that public t-pirit which may save the
community from irreparable disaster.
At the saiae time it is worthy of remark
that no pngi-acions crank has as yet
asked the intervention of the courts to
compel the bank to give him his money.

The Horn Fly.
Kansas farmers are complaining of a
new pest known as the horn fly so
called from its habit of resting on the
horns of cattle from whence it moves
to various parts of the body, piercing the
skin with its serrate proboscis and suck
ing the animal's blood. Its habits are
not only annoying, but exceedingly harm
ful. The pest was unknown here a year
ago, bnt is now one of the most abun
dant and hurtful of tiie fly species. Pro
fessor Kellogg of the state university
says it is a native of Europe, and was
probably introduced into America with
a shipment of cattle from France. It
was first observed in New Jersey in Sep
tember, 1S7. In October, lft. it was
in Maryland. Iu lss-j it had traveled
south and west over Delaware, Mary
land and Virginia, and in IS'M it wts
wonderfully active, appearing in Ken
tucky. By the end of IS'01 it got as far
as New York and west to Ohio, south to
Florida r.nd Mississippi. In IStU it was
noticed in Illinois and is now found iu
Kansas and other western states. An
effort will bo made to prevent a farther
spread of tho p-st by the same process
now used in exterminating chinch' bugs,

Poor I'enple's Gardens.
Until he saw it with his own eyes, the
east end of London was, to M. Fran
cisque Sarcey, the region of Jack the
Ripper. He had been led to expect in it
a hideous blot on creation and a place
which it would be unsafe for him to ex
plore except under police protection. He
came away from it agreeably disillu
sioned. Had ho remained long enough
in London to see the window gardening
exhibition, opened at St. George's parish
church yesterday, he would have said
that the east enders were people of taste
as well as of comparative comfort and
of respect for law and order. "Window
gardening in eastern London has
reached the dignity of a fine art. It is
making a great and steady progress, and
this year's exhibition is pronounced to
be superior to the five that have preced
ed it. Most of the 300 plants exhibited
have been cultivated by young jeople
living in Shad well and its neighboring
districts. London News.
The Destroying Crickets In Idaho.
The onward march of the crickets in
Idaho is described by the correspondents
as something more terrible to the farm
ers than an army with banners. The lit
tle pests made their appearance in north
ern Idaho in May and have been moving
toward the south and east ever since,
eating every blade of grain and grass on
the way and even destroying the foliage
and fruit. The farmers have been crush
ing them with rollers, burning them with
sage brush fires and roasting them as they
swim ncross the rivers and ditches with
burning oil, but they still move on by
millious. undaunted by the slaughter
and undismayed by anything except a
lack of verdure. J list how far they are
going is a matter of much moment to
the farmers of tlte mountain region.

minister in the interest of economy. At
Ashland, tho county seat, seven denomi
nations combined and took a vote on the

should preach the gospel to the people,

Wafthonts In Arizona.
The last place on earth from which

Getting Tun Out of Tolitics.
The truth is. people must either fight
or laugh, and we prefer to laugh. Once
in awhile partisans get into a hot de
bate and break the furniture, but as a
general thing we take matters good
humoredly, and if a reporter is really
witty we smile as broadly as circum
stances permit. It is very interesting,
therefore, to read the comments of our
contemporaries. Here is The Tribune,
for instance, with a choice variety of
four line siji.ibs every morning full of
ridicule of tho other fellow. It has a
specialist who extracts all the wasp
stings that can lie found and furnishes a
daily dish drowned in pepper sauce.
Some of them make delicious reading,

they are bright.
