TT waa not a tveicul Kansas farmer In appearance; that is, Ee did not bring to mind the xamiiy pictures 01 vuo populist, so common in eastern comio papers. On the contrary, no migni have been let down in any oxne wwn of one of the middle states without TMiiff ahltof curiosity. Butbewas a Kansan through and through, and proud of It, if you please, although he could not claim the oirtnngni, as mm story proved. Filing his attention on one particu. lar passenger who may have seemed to kim mora receptive than the others, ho opened the conversation witE the qy .... "Be you from the east" Ob receiving an affirmative reply, Ee went on: "Well. I come from the east myself 40 years ego, over the prairies from Wisconsin, and I tell you it was a hard rid. We came out In a prairie schooner, irif and T. and took ud a Quarter sec tion south of here. It was pretty bard sleddin' sometimes; crops weren't ai mn crood. and then the winter would be mighty tough. But we stuck to it and reared a Uttle lamuy, ana wnea th bovs cTew no they helped on th land and made things go better. . . . 9 "Four years ago 1 conciuaea 1a worked enough, so I gave the boys tfie farm and cama to town. Wife an' I settled down in a little house that didn't cost much, and the first summer ra tonic a trin to Colorado SDrines and had a ride up Pike's Peak. That was a great trip, I tell you. Next year we went to Omaha to the exposition, and had a big time. Bay, that was a great how; did you go? Thought we'd go back to Wisconsin this year, an' see the state fair, but a chance came along to make a little money, so we gave it up. Some of the railroad folks told ma there was an opening for an elevator, 0 I got a contractor to give me some figures, bought a pretty good engine that had been trough a fire at a big bargain, an' there she Is" pointing to a sightly-looking new building half a mile up the track. "Say, stranger, that thing's goin' to cost me $800 'fore I get it finished, but she's all right, and if you ever come through this way when she's goin I want you to walk out an see Eer." And it Is safe to say that J. Plerpont Morgan, with all his millions never felt more prosperous, nor took greater pride In his most gigantio undertaking, than this simple-minded plutocrat of the prairie takes to himself on this crowning achievement of hislife of toil his $800 grain elevator. POPE LEO'S DUMB FRIENDS. A Herd ot Deer and an Oatrieh Fam ily, Are at Homes In the Vat ican Garden. An archway adjoining the observa tory leads to a new phase of the papal pleasure ground, the purely pastoral and domestic, for here a raried collection of animals have their home, all of them presents to tis holiness on his different jubilees. Most beautiful and graceful of these dumb friends and dependents are the herd of small deer, mild-eyed and gentle, that come racing down the slopes to gaze doubtfully at the stranger. Only the boldest of the herd ven ture near enough to thrust their soft noses through the wire netting of the inclosure to beg daintily in the plainest possible language for "just a handful of freshly gathered grass and clover. The slightest movement startles these timid creatures, and in an instant they are gone, fleetly ss the wind, back to the farthest fastnesses of their domain from which no grassy wiles can lure them, lays Donahoe's Magazine. There Is nothing left but to pro ceed to the next inclosure, where a long-lepged ostrich family share spa cious quarters with a magnificent pelican. This venerable bird, with much self-consequence, struts to the front and assumes the honors of host to all visitors, without the least re gard for his Imposing companions, who, standing coyly and almost apol ogetically In the background, crane their thin necks for possible pieces of bread. The attendant, If there are ladies In the party, usually offers an ostrich feather as a souvenir of the gardens. Now, if one is of an arithmetical turn of mind and begins to calculate how many leathers are given away In a year to visitors, the result gives a surprising deficit of feathers, the wonder being that the ostriches still possess so much of their soft, downy eoats of gray.
