PROHIBITION INDORSED. Mit'tiigauItHittistAflave ; Lively Time Over Xe it i p 3 rat nee. J.ANeiN)., Mich., Oct. 2H. The Baptist state convention catie near breaking up in a row over the temperance question. After a very stormy seasiou the radicals succeeded in sec urine- the adoption of resolutions favoring the prohibition of the liquor traffic in this state. The report of the committee on temperance, which was read by Rev. Wiison Whitney, of Ad rian, paid that prohibition was im practicable and that temperance could be best prorncted by the rigid en forcement of the license laws and the education of the paople in the proper channels. Many women and not a few men were extremely indignant because of the language of the report. Two or three delegates, less radical than the rest, endeavored to thow that a great many people believed prohibition to be impracticable because it is never enforced, and its effect is to promote a disregard for the laws of the country. Their efforts, however, were of no avail. The convention not. July voted down the report of the commntee, but adopted the strong prohibition resolutions in its place. T1IIR S TV NEW OR LEANS.

They do not know where they are to get drinking water unless it rains soon, of which at present t.iere seems to be no prospect. The drouth has listed now about two months. The cisterns are nearly all empty and the weds dry. The people depend almost entirely upon the supply of water caught o:f the roof-j of the houses in cisterns. Thus Mississippi river water id unlit to drink unless fil tered. There is considerable suffering in the rear of the Sixth district, and the people have to go six. and seven blocks to the tire plu,s. The cisterns are in danger of falling to pieces, owing to being empty and standing out in the sun. Vegetables are becoming scarce, being pretty well burued up. The dust in the city is al most intolerable. The Tabnr ( aniiinny Mrheilnle. DtxvKR, Oct. 23.

The members of the Salvation army gathered in Union square last evening, and after greeting the venerable General Booth, dispersed to reassemble ia Music hall, where the event of the day took place. An audience of ,5,000 greeted General Booth. The boxes were Idled with fash ionable men and women who are inter ested in the auxiliary league ot the army. Commander Booth led in prayer, and then Rev. Dr. Henry Bradford of Mont Clair, X. J., read an address of welcome to General Booth. Commander Booth then presented his father, the general, with a handsomely framed testimonial from the staff officers. General Booth arose to make his ac knowledgement and a mighty wave of applause swept over the house. The general made a speech in which he briefly told the history of the army. "Why did I undertake this work?" he asked. Because in one part of the east end of London the population had never been inside of a church. I drew the painted woman from the streets and drunkards around me and preached the gospel of Jesus to them. Before then Christianity was a bye-word of reproach 011 their lips. "People have questioned our mode of operations. They decry the noise and the banners, but yet the end has justified the means. "We hnve planted our 1 atineis on the walls of Dt. Petersburg an d in distant In dia, and will push our tight to .-very cor ner of the earth. We will probably in time establish an international headquar ters in America." Commander Booth then asked that $1,500 should be collected. The baskets were passed around but the amount col lected was not made public. DERS EHKillT HOPES.

Jim Boyes, a San Francfeco gentle man who keeps what is known as the Oolden Shore butcher shop, has two vegetable eating bulldogs, who have managed to live and thrive on potatoes, carrots, turnips, cabbage and other va rieties of vegetables, together with a little fruit occasionally by way of des sert. Paddy, the male dog, 6 years of age, has been living on green goods for about five years, while Nellie, the mate, has eaten the food since her acquaint ance with Paddy, which is of about two years' standing. Mr. Boyes recently fed the dogs in the presence of an Examiner reporter. He threw a big Early Rosa po tato down the sidewalk, and Paddy reached the prize first, took it in his mouth, bit it in two pieced and dropped it again. Nellie took the largest piece aud ate every fragment. Paddy then took the other half and gulped it down whole. 'die doesn't care much for potatoes, but ho will eat them if Nellie doerf, " said Mr. Boyes. "You must not imag ine that he broke the potato in two as an act of chivalry. He probably thought it was a turnip." As intimated by Mr. Boyes, Paddy prefers turnips and always peels them himself. Mr. Boyes then threw Paddy a white turuip about the size of his fit. The dog caught it in his mouth, rolled it around a few moments, spit out a handful of peel and quietly munched the tender heart with as much relish as Ward McAllister would dissect a ten derloin. His mate used the same care while eating her turnip, but swallowed the potatoes skin and all. San Fran cisco Call. A Xting JPusczle. In this city recently the possessor of a diamond ring requested a frieud to take the riag to a reputable house raid borrow $ 10 upon it. The friend com plied and soon returned with the mon ey. The ring was placed in the safe by the man who furnished the cash, there to remain until it should be redeemed. Later on No. 2, who pawned the ring for No. 1, concluded that he would like to have 10, and as the ring was a val uable one lie returned to the man with the safe and afked for the money, which was readily furnished, the safe man supposing the ring belonged to No. 2, the man who pawned it. Nos. 1 and 2 now had $10 each, provided they had not spent it, which is more than likely. Later on it happened that the safe man went home for the night, and his place was taken by another. The second safe man knew nothing about the transac tions of the first safe man concerning tho diamond ring. When another man (No. 3) presented himself and courteous ly stated that he had left a ring in the charge of the first safe man and desired to get it, the second safe man, being convinced that the ring belonged to No. 3, handed out the glittering circle cf gold without unnecessary delay. No. 3, on obtaining possession of the ring, found that he also needed some money, and at once. He therefore lost no time in putting up the ring at his uncle's for an equivalent in coin of the realm. The result: The first safe man is out $20. No. 1 is out a diamond ring and owes $10. No. 2 is ahead $10. No. 3 is ahead all he could get on the ring. Helena Independent.

Ex-Congressman Ben Wood tells a characteristic anecdote of his first meet ing with James Gordon Bennett, the elder. Mr. Wood took an active part in local politics before he was of age. One day he was traduced, as he thought, by a newspaper reporter, and after the fash ion of those days sought personal satis faction by giving the reporter a physical castigation. Mr. Bennett in The Herald took the matter up and roasted Mr. Wood editorially. The next c1ay the lat ter went to the editorial office, firmly resolved to beat Mr. Bennett too. He found the editor at his desk, and thrust ing a copy of the morning paper Tinder his nose said: "I want to know who wrote that article, sir." Mr. Bennett laid down his pen, and looking up at him curiously and benig nantly asked: "Are you Ben "Wood?" "Yes, sir. That is my name." "Well, Wood, how old are you?" "I am nearly 20." "Indeed, " rejoined Mr. Bennett, with the broad Scotch accent. "Well, Mr. Wood, don't you think it a great thing for a man as young as you are to be dignified and advertised by a notice in the editorial page of The Herald? My dear sir, I congratulate you." Mr. Wood was taken aback with this new view of the thing. The two men had a friendly chat, and the man who come in angry went away in high good hnmor and with the editor's blessing.

Tim WET STB AW. He had passed his first ten years la prison without doin anything, settling himself and fitting himself to the habits of the place. Then, as there were yet 20 years of prison life before him, he said one Cna morning that it was shameful to lead so idle a life, and that ha must create for himself some occupation worthy not of ts freeman, since lie was a prisoner, but worthy simply of a man. He devoted a year to reflection, to weigh ing the different ideas which presented themselves, to seeking a definite aim for his existence. "I must," said he, "find something at the same time novel, useful and defying. 1 must invent a task which shall occupy my time, which shall be productive of some good and which shall have the value of a protest." Another year was employed In this search, and at last success crowned his efforts. It was a veritable dungeon, that in which the prisoner lived, which the sun entered but for one short half hour daily, and then by a single ray, which was a mere thread of light. The bed on which the unhappy man stretched his aching limbs was a pile of wet straw. "The very thing," he cried, with en ergy. ''Now I shall defy my jailers and cheat the courts." First he counted the separate straws that made up his bundle. There were 1,307 straws, a meager bundle! Then he made an experiment to find out hew long it would tako to dr.- a singlo straw. Three-quarters of an hour. It would require for them all, for the 1,80V straws, a totrd of 980 hours and 15 min utes, with a half hour of sunshine a day l,ydl days. Calculating that the suu would not shine at lt-ast one day out of three, it would require 10 years, 1 month, 1 week and 0 days. He set to work at once. Every day that the sun shone the pris oner carried a straw and put it in the sun shine, busying himself thus whenever there was sun. For the rest of the time ho kept warm under his clothes the straws which he had been able to dry. Thus ten years passed. The prisoner slept on only a third of the bundle of the damp straw, and he had stuffed in the bosom of his blouse the other two-thirds which, one by one, he had dried. Fifteen years passed. Happiness un speakable! Only 12ti damp straws re mained. Eighty-four days more, and the prisoner could scarcely contain himself. Proud of his work, victory over circumstances, he cried, with the voice of an avenger, with a mocking, rebellious laugh: ''Ah! all! You condemned me to the wet straw of a dungeon! Well, weep with rago! I sleep on dry straw." Alas! a cruel destiny was watching fcr its prey. One night, while the prisoner dreamed of the happiness in store for him, in his wild joy he threw out his hands in speech less exultation, overset his water jug, and the water ran trickling down his breast. All of the straws were wet. What to do now? To be;?in again the toil of Sisyphus? To pass 15 years more putting straws to dry in the slender ray? Oh, the discouragement of it! But, you say, ho had only 1 years more in prison. And do you count as nothing wounded pride, fallen hope? Think, this man would have worked 15 yeurs to sleep on a bundle of dry straw, and should he con sent; to quit his prison with wet straws ciir.ging to his hair? Never! Eight days and nights he writhed in agony. He finished by acknowledging defeat. One evening he fell on his knees, de spairing, broken. "O God," he cried in his tears, "par don me that I have lost courage today! I have suffered for 30 years. I have felt my limbs waste, my skin mortify, my eyes grow dim and my hair and teet h fail me. I have resisted hunger, thirst, cold and solitude. I had a hope which sustained my efforts. I had an aim in my life. Xow it is impossible to satisfy my hope. Now the aim is gone forever. Pardon me that I desert my post; that I quit the field of battle; that 1 ilee like a coward. I can bear it no longer." Then in a sudden ac cess of indignation he cried: "Xo, no, a thousand times no! It shall not be said that I have lust my life for nothing. I will not desert. I am not a coward. No, I will not sleep for a minute more on the damp straw of the dungeon. No, they shall not defeat me." And the prisoner died during the night, conquered, like Brutus; grand, like Cato. He died of a heroic indigestion. Ho had eaten all bis straw.
