Aa Incident Which Shows That One
Should "ot Talk Too Much.
Here is an incident which, to be ap
preciated, needs a glance at the sweet
womanly face of the young Mrs. Stan
ton: Mrs. Stanton was summering at
Saratoga, eagerly enjoying the delights
of that fascinating young watering
place half a century ago a merry
young mother, in great demand for her
agreeable manners and sparkling con
versation, as well as for her talented
performances upon the guitar. Chattisg
with a friend one day, the woman ques
tion that bugbear of the moment was
brought up. "Isn't it dreadful," he re
marked, "to think of a woman so un
sexing herself as actually to appear
before the legislature at Albany?" Nat
urally enough, the heroine of this very
shocking procedure protested against
this interpretation of woman's sphere;
yet, amused by her friend's faux pas,
mischievously she led him on.
"What kind of a woman ia this Mrs.
Stanton?" 8he inquired.
"Oh, a dreadful kind of a woman!"
was the reply. "Just the kind of wo
man one would expect would do 6uca
"Do describe her," pleaded his tor
mentor. "Tell me more about her."
And he, nothing loath, went on:
"Well, she's a large, masculine-looking
woman, with high cheek-bones and a
loud, harsh voice don't you know
just one of those regular woman's
"Have you really seen her, or is this
taken from the papers?" she asked,
"Of course I have seen her; did I net
tell you tvat I heard her before the
"How did she speak?"
"Frightfully; it was simply awful.
Her strident voice and her masculine
appearance should have been the death
knell to her cause."
"What is her name, did you say?"
"Mrs. Stanton Mrs. Henry Stanton,
"Why, that's my name!" she said.
"'Of course she's your namesake, so
I thouht you would be Interested. But
I knew it could be no relation of yours.
Ha, ha, ha!"
Mrs. Stanton rose. "I am afraid I am
she," she said.
Of course ihere was nothing for him
to do but to confess and groveL .

HAD A FRIENDLY HUG.
Governor Morrill and Tom Potter,
THEIR ARMS ARODSD EACH OTHER
At the State Board or Agriculture
Meeting- lDg or the Board.
If Governor Merrill has the least feel
ing regarding Mr. Potter of Peabody,
who has recently been mentioned by a
good many newspapers as his possible
successor in the hearts of the Republi
cans of the state, because of it, it did not
appear to be lying about loose when the
two men met last night at the meeting of
the state board of agriculture.
After the meeting was over Mr. Mor
rill sought Mr. Potter In the swarm of
agricultural sympathizers that beseiged
him and put his arm about his shoulders
in that fatherly way of hia Mr. Potter
in reciprocation placed his arm about Mr.
MorriU'a waist and while It was appar
ent that he had the underhold the demon
stration was most friendly.
"It was a grand, glorious meeting we
had, Brother Potter," said Mr. Morrill,
"and I was proud to address it."
"And we were proud to have you, gov
ernor," said Mr. Potter, ond clasped in
each other's arms they breathed out their
affectii n in each other's ears.
Regarding his mentioned candicacy
Mr. Potter is as careful and studiously
shy as the man who once walked on eggs
and did not want to get his feet wet. Mr.
Potter does not, in the parlance of the
street, care to t;et his feet wet, either.
But Mr. Potter's friends whisper
around on the quiet, "Of course he is a
candidate," with a just-press-him-and-see-what-will-happen
It is very evident that Mr. Potter would
like to play statesman awhile and that
he would accept the nomination even if
the platter were only nickel plated.
But he is an artful dodger or pretends
"I know nothing of It," he said to a
Journal reporter. "1 do no', know who
started it. 1 am not a candidate. There
is nothing to that report."
Mr. Potter has lived on a farm long
enough to understand the worth of labor
saving devices and has writteu the fol
lowing type written "interview" to the
newspapers. Newspapers who have not
received theirs can get a copy by address
ing F. D. Coburn at the office of the sec
retary of agriculture.
"To be the governor of the great state
of Kansas is an honor which ought to
satisfy the most ambitious. But with this
distinguished honor conferred by the
people, they couple grave responsi
bilities which no one ought light
ly to assume. I only wish I
merited the numerous very kindly
allusions to my name in this connection
which various Kansas newspapers have
made, coupling it with the office of gov
ernor, but aa matters now stand I see no
occasion for any declaration one way or
the other on my part in relation to it.
'For some reason there seems to be a
great deal of unrest and divergence of
opinion as to the best policy in the Re
publican ranks. But my faith, in the
ability of the party that saved the
nation, redeemed Kansas and placed
us in the front rank of pro
gressive stateB. is unbounded and
when the proper time comes she will
enunciate a set of principles and choose
a leader which will win a Bigual victory
in '96. That individual, whom-so-ever
he may be, is my candidate for gov
ernor." "How do you stand on the enforce
ment of the prohibitory law?"
Mr. Potter smiled.
"No one who knows mo thoroughly
would ask that question," he said.
But the trouble ia we do not know Mr.
Potter thoroughly. We thought we
kuew Governor Morrill "thoroughly"
but we didn't.
BOARD OF AUltlCCLTCBE.
Sonie of the Tiling It Did Yesterday and
There were at least 200 persons pres
ent at the opening meetings of the state
board of agriculture yesterday afternoon
The afternoon was devoted exclusively
to business, the reading of miuutes and
reports taking up a great deal of the
Farmer A W. Smith was there, and
arose to enter a protest against the cur
tailing of the fund for printing reports of
Mr. Coburn explained that Mr. Dawes
bad protested against the printing of
certain documents, whereupon the board
got even by protesting against Mr. Dawes.
At the evening meeting, after Dr. Mc
Cabe had invoked the divine blessiog,
Governor Morrill had an opportunity to
use his address of welcome once more,
having dusted it and carefully erased
the words "bankers," "dairymen," "min
isters," "teachers," or whatever words he
had inserted in the blank places last
and replaced it with "f armers,"Jexcept in
one instance where he forgot himself
and said "bankers" and was compelled
to correct it.
President T. M. Potter of the board,
who hopes to be able to deliver the next
annual address of welcome himself re
plied to the speech and let loose his Uni
versity of Michigan learning in the fol
lowing flowery wave of eloquence:
"Kansas! The birthright of a free
people, the child of an idea in whom the
hopes of a nation were .centered, whose
wealth is principally from the soil, the
most stable of all wealth, whose citizens
are largely engaged in agriculture, the
most conservative, elevating, and reliable
of ail occupations.
"Kansas! Distinguished for the
achievements and heroism of her early
sons and daughters,
'They had arms that could strike.
They had souls that could dare.
And their sous were not born to be slaves.'
"Great in the phenomenal growth of
her cities, her railways, and other in
ternal movements, in the vast accumu
lation of her fertile prairies, in her pub
lic and private institutions of learning
and religion, and protection for her un
fortunate and dependent citizens.
"But grander still is the promise of the
future of this state, whose foundation'
principles are based upon individual lib
erty, education, sobriety and morality,
whose resources are derived from the
bountiful earth, and the motto of whose
ambition surmounts all difficulties and
stops not short of the stars,
"If we are true to our standards, and
falter not, taking no backward step from
the advanced position which we now
hold aa the vanguard of our sister states
in their onward march cf civilization,
what possibilities lie before us.
"The unemployed wealth of a nation
will be at our command, her best sons
and daughters will seek a home and
citizenship within our borders, and the
brightest and most romantic ideal dreams
of the founders of our state will become
"As we think of our past achievements,
of present attainments and future possi
bilities of our beloved Kansas, we may
well exclaim in the language of another.
'It is glory enough for one to have had
a part in building up such a history, in
shaping euch a destiny.' "
Howel Jones of Topeka read an inter
esting paper entitled "Importance of a
Deep Water Harbor for the Gulf of
Chancelor Snow of the state university
read a paper on "Popular Education in
Europe." and dwelt at length on the
workings of the twenty-two universities
of Germany. He said:
"It would not be a great surprise to the
writer if a Republican form of govern
ment should be established in Germany
by bloodless revolution during the next
quarter of a century. And if this result
snould be reached, the influence of the
twenty-two universities upon the masses
of the people will be found to have been
greater than all other influences com
bined in producing the change.
"If the same rigid educational tests
ware applied to the teachers of Kansas
that are applied to the teachers of the
German public schools at least nine
tenths of the present teaching force
would be at once disqualified."

Mt. Pleasant, Fla., ' Jan. 9. For the
love of a woman, Henry Thomas and Al
bert Stafford fought a duel to the death
near this place Tuesday afternoon Tues
day Thomas and two friends went hunt
ing, not knowing that Stafford and three
friends had gone on a similar errand.
In the afternoon they met and it
seemed that a general fight would ensue.
Thomas, however,urged that only he and
Stafford were concerned and asked that
ther be allowed to fight it out. This was
agreed to and Thomas and Stafford,
armed with pistols, faced each other at
30 yards and began firing.
Neither was injured by the first ex
change, and the men advanced on each
other. At the second shot Thomas fell,
with a bullet in his bowels. Stafford still
advanced ou the prostrate man, firing,
when Thomas staggered to his feet, and,
steadying himself by a small tree, took
deliberate aim and sent a bullet through
his foe's heart Thomas died two hours

CYCLING ON THE ICE.
The Sport Promises to Beeome Popular
Amour Wheelmen larinjr the Winter.
The true cycling crank does not cease
riding because the weather drops to zero.
He puts on a warm sweater or two, dons
MABEL DAVIDSON ON HER ICE BICYCLE.
big mittens and "scorches" over the fro
zen roads and even over the ice and snow.
If he loves to combine cycling and skat
ing, he purchases one of the new ico bicy
cles and enjoys many a fast run over the
gleaming surface of the river or lake. A
year or two ago John S. Johnson attracted
considerable attention owing to the fast
time that he made over the ice on a pecul
iar vehicle that was built exactly like a
bicycle except that the front wheel was a
sled runner. The hind wheel's tiro was fit
tod with spikes which dug into the ice as
the ridor pedaled and drove the odd ma
chine forward at a high rate of speed.
The machine was callod the ice bicycle,
and it will doubtless be popular with many
wheelmen and skaters this winter. Not
long ago Miss Mabel Davidson, who claims
to be the champion ice skator of her sex,
tried one of the ice bicycles In a New York
xink and was very mUoh pleased with the
machine. "I would like to ride 500 miles
if thesnowwould permit," shosaid. "The
sensation is quite different from that of
an ordinary bicycle, as there Is no jolting
or bumping, which at times seems rudo."
The ice bicycle is intended not only for
ice riding, but for traveling on snow. The
long runner, or skate, which replaces the
front wheel of the bicycle, in itself is made
for ice alone, but whon the machine is
used on snowclad roads a motal shoo is
fitted over the skate, and it is claimed that
the machine will carry a rider over the
ground, or rather snow or ico, at a greater
speed than a regulation wheel will.
John X. Sullivan's New Piece For 1896.
John Lawrence Sullivan is beloved in
Chicago, for he has been known to
"smash" a bartender who offered to give
him back- some change after receiving a
$10 bill. The "big fellow" didn't want to
have his pockets full of small bills.
Any one who "burned money" in that
manner necessarily inspired respect. His
friends will tell, with the tremble of pa
thos in their voices, how the " big fellow"
worked for 40 weeks in one season at $500
a week and then had to go to New York
and have a benefit in order to "catch
even" on the year all because he was
such a good fellow.
He has boen whipped out of the cham
pionship and has. spent the thousands and
thousands of dollars that he made as pugil
ist and octo?, but he is still the immortal
"big fellow in the eyes of bis admiring
friends, and the sound of his hoarse and
foggy voice is sweetest music to their ears.
He is still a drawing card, and he told
ono of his friends the othor day that he ex
pected to go back on the stage again.
"Say, I've got a great piece for 1896,"
said he in that gruff, inimitable voice.
"Iathatsof What is it? "
"An opera." -
