brought it about by .shrinking the

cent. Of eour-e, no moneyed man
will loan a dollar, even on cattle se
curity, if he thinks he is liable to be
paid 75 cents or less in full -el ; le
nient. That is why our cattle secur
ities cannot be marketed, and well-to-do
stockmen are compelled to sac
rifice green, immature steers for lack
of funds to carry them with. I hope
and believe that western men have
had enough of 'cheap money' made
of bullion certificates. I think they
are ready now for sound nionev and

good times by inflating the currency
reminds me of working tip a freight

With characteristic sagacitv and
practical good sense Senator Hill is
devoting himself to an effort to se
cure such a change in the rules as
shall make the senate a rationally
self-controlled body, master of itself,
dominated by the will of its majority
and able to do business. EverV
democratic senator who has the
sense to look, beyond his own nose
should support this effort as a meas
ure of ordinary prudence, observes
the New York World.
The southern democratic senators
are profoundly interested in the
passage of the bill to repeal the
federal election laws. That bill can
never be passed while present senate
rules endure. Now that the south
ern democratic senators, in alliance
with the senators of the mining
com panics, hare made filibustering
a recognized proceeding in the up
per house, a mere handful of repub
licans can prevent a vote on the elec
tions repeal bill, and they will un
doubtedly do so.
All democratic senators are con
cerned to pass the tarilT reform bill
which is now being framed by the
Wilson committee. It was for that
the people transferred power in both
houses to the democracy. Hut the
tariff bill can never be passed w hile
the present conditions continue in
the senate. Under the minority-rule
precedent, recently established, a
few protectionist senators can and
will forbid any vote whatever upon
The rules must be changed if any
business is to be done by this demo
cratic congress. As "they stand,
there cnneter be anything done so
long as a determined minority ob
jects. One of the minority, Dubois,
lias taunted the senate with its ina
bility to suppress him and insolently
delied the majority. It is time for
the senate to assert itself and to
change the rule that renders it impo
tent and ridiculous.

A sample rat-trap was in a drug
store in Lewiston, Maine, a few days
ago, waiting for a customer. It was
a new-fangled rat-trap which some
one had left there for fun or sale, or
to be called for.
The trap was s t and was in the
open shop, where t could be seen.
About 10:30 o'cloe'j a big dog came
ia with a little g rl, or vice versa,
although the dog was bigger than
the girL The , little girl bought
something and tha proprietor was
tying up the package, while the dog
went prowling a ound after the
manner of dogs and was in a moment

Just then Whoop lal llip-p-p,
s-s-t-boomah, Ki-yi-yi." out came the
dog with about seven inches of
tongue protruding, to which dangled
a rat-trap, full sie. hanging to the
tongue with a fifty light dynamo
grip. In an ir.stan", there was fun in
tho apothecary sho;i. Vou have seen
a dog fight with e.even dogs in it?
No? Weil, may bo you have eeu a
rooster with his h ad cutoff? No?
Then you haven't any idea tln way
this dog did upthe drug store. Why.
he fairly owned it Over the boxes,
in behind l'ic counter, out again,
seven la;s around the stove, three
trips into the back shop, kicking up
his heels until the lust flew, knock
ing over bottles, opening up cases of
last year's almanacs, howling like a
calliope, clank: tier like a threshing
machine, lor ab.ut two minutes
they gave him full swing. The clerk
tried to corner hiti. but it was no

girl, but ISose didn'. kr.ow he lie
regarded her as at. utter stranger,
lie had a nearer iirl clo.-er attach
ment tha-i any move family affair. Ho
had too much b isiness to bother
with little giris. He was too much
'in it" to waste his time in respond
ing to mere friemlh calls. Twice he
dashed at the door, but it was shut,
and tho proprietor didn't want ,to
lose his trap.
He'll run a week." said a man
who was climbing i lto a chair in
order to give the dog more room.
Chloroform him." said the news
paper man from chind the soda
"Hive him a dose of fly powder.''
shouted the clerk.
'Snap!" The dig had stopped
suddenly, had r-haken his head and
the trap had bcn I ung three feet
awav. taking with it a dainty morsel
of his tongue.
Poor Iiothe," said the little, girl,
as she opened t he loor. but l!oso
never even wagged :iis tail as with
one despairing ioul; at the interior of
the store so that In could remem
ber it next time, he fled liki a wild,

A certain religious order dreads
wrinkles so much tiat they have a
strict rule against contracting the
eyebrows. The reason for this is
that the wrinkles on the face con
stitute a language of their own, and,
indeed, there are some who assert
that a man's or woman's history could
be written from the wrinkles which
furrow the face.

Ca'ur d'Alene Indians has a fine farm
' of 1T acres on the south side of the
Spokane river, about a dozen miles
above Spokane, Wash., and the other
day the tax-gatherer thought it would
be a very proper and desirable thing
to tax it a good round sum. So he
came smilingly with his bill. But
Quinnemore was prepared for him,
even on such an unexpected mission.
He brought forth a paper which in
