should be made amenable to the law;

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

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
'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

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.

Ex-Congressman Ben Wood tells a
characteristic anecdote of his first meet
ing with James Gordon Bennett, the
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.

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
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. From the French

But after four weeks of Dr. Browntield'a
wonderful treatment she has been able
to return to her home overland to Great
Bend. Kan., body strengthened, mind in
vigorated, energy to work restored,
