With the Long Bow
Continued Activity Since. A N OLD telegraph editor who "handled the news" from 1885 to 1899 and who has watched the progress of events with a technical eye since that date, states that he has noticed a strange phenomenon in news. It is this: In the old days, barring elections and the regular happenings, "the news" was terribly quiet. From 1885 to 1893 it was always a struggle, along about noon, to discover anything of sufficient importance to take the "four A heads" that the paper then de manded of its telegraph editor, no matter if nothing I more exciting occurred than a man caught kissing his maiden aunt on Fifteenth street S. About the time of the world's fair in Chicago and of the financial disturbances, there was a sudden out burst of news that made the telegraph editor hump himself. Then followed the fierce silver campaign of 1896 and the Spanish war. From that time on there has been news excitement to throw away. The Boer war, the Pclee disaster, Hague conferences, the Jap anese war, wireless telegraphy, airships, earthquake, panics, automobiles, fire, cyclone, war, murder and sud den death followed one another with terrible regular ity, and the telegraph editor has been the center of disturbance that makes him eat with one hand and listen with the other for fear the earth will fall into the sun without his having a picture on the front page of the hole made in the orb of day, and a string of red headlines extending clear across the front page of the paper reading: "Terrible DisasterEarth Completely "Wiped Out." Can anyone explain why this burst of news started in all at once and when it will quiet down again into the old ruts where the telegraph editor has to put scare heads on the Washington correspondence? One news authority today explained the situation in part in this way: He figured that there were more things moving around and more people to get in front of them now than 1880. Perhaps this is part of it. Somebody asks who that biblical character was who spoke in olden times "convincing man of sin" but who today is neither on earth nor in heaven. That is easy. It was the animal Balaam rode on that historic occa sion when she turned and addressed the rider to his Surprise and confusion. Dr. Woods'Hutchinson, who has written an article for McClure's Magazine advocating liberty to God's creatures as to what they shall eat, has made a de cided hit. People whose digestive apparatus is in a perfectly healthy state are pestered almost to death by the gastronomic leformers whose chief enjoyment in life is in making other people apprehensive as to what they put into their faces.

Mf Two months ago St. Lawrence, S. D., had no lid or, if one existed, it was not on. Everything was wide open, including the drugstore. An evangelist held some meetings there and the Miller Sun declares that the town is today a model. Those who drank were drawn into the meetings and the druggist himself finally came in to smile and remained to pray. To prove his sincerity he sent all his whisky back to tho wholesaler. The town today has a brass lid, polished and riveted on and if anybody swears in the corpor ate limits the livery stable man looks shocked.

At an afternoon reception recently, Icroustades a la Creole were among the viands. They consisted of small rolls cut in half, with the centers scooped out and the hollow filled with a salad made of bits of shredded tender cel ery, diced beets and minced pickled gherkins seasoned with mayonnaise. Over the tops were sprinkled the pow dered yolks of hard-boiled eggs, gar nished with bits of anchovy. They *were served in a napkin surrounded by cress. Cream cheese is the base of any number of dainty fillings. It goes ex cellently with not only minced olives or minced green peppers, but with chopped nuts of all kinds.

A JOKER Finn Leech has something of a repev tation, and it has been just such pranks as he performed at a committee meeting in the early days of Fargo that gained for him his reputation. It was the opening of a hot municipal campaign. Two tickets were in the field and both sides had per fected organization. As usual, the genial fat man was lined up strong with one side and was among the selected few who, with the candidates for office, were invited to a meeting to consider ways and means for the carrying on of the campaign. The meeting had hardly been opened when one of the candidates, a man who has since quit the political game, arose and stated that on account of the press of other business he would not be able to remain and take part the deliberations. "However, I am in hearty accord with whatever action is taken by the committee," he said, "and will assist in a financial way." Beaching into his pocket, the candidate, who was out for one of the fattest snaps in the city, pulled forth a $5 bill and threw it on the table. The other persons held their breath at such liberality and said nothing until the candidate had left the room. "Well, as Mr. So-and-So has started the ball roll ing by a contribution to the campaign fund of $5," said the onairman, "let us see what the rest of us can do." The hat was then passed, and finally it reached Mr. Leech. He reached first into one pocket and then another, but apparently could nof^find what he was looking for. Finally he said: I haven't got a nickel with me, but I will send you a check for that amount tomorrow, it looks as if that's about my share."Fargo Forum.

A PRETTY WRAPPER There are plenty of models for neg ligees, tea gowns, lounging robes and the like for the women, but Dame Fashion seems to have forgotten thak the schoolgirl gets tired and does not always want to wear her polite, con ventional clothes about the house. For this reason we have designed a wrap per for a girl and this one cannot fail to please the most particular because of its simplicity, comfort and attractive ness. The full skirt part is gathered E^X-DELEGATE to a round yoke which is concealed by a broad-shaped collar edged with a frill and fastened with buttons at one side of the front. This collar may be left off if desired, but it is decidedly novel ?nd fetching. The sleeves are full to three-quarter length, being finished with a full ruffle. Lawn challis or one of the popular Japanese silks may serve as material and the pattern is so sim ple that the girl may fashion it herself with a little care. For the medium size 4% yards of 36-inch material are needed. 4711sizes, 10, 12, 14 and 16 veari. THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL Imposed On by a Greenhorn EODEY of New Mexico, who has -been in WashiiMrton this winter fighting for oint statehood, rails a story illustrative of the trite saying that circumstances alter cases. Some of the citizens of a certain southwestern town which was still in the class of frontier settlements devised a new method of inducing "tenderfoot" visitors to, furnish entertainment for the crowd. When the stranger arrived in town and began the making of acquaintances by conventional methods the ring leaders would present to him one of the natives who was described as a marveltfusly accurate shot. To satisfy the curiosity and interest invariably manifested by the stranger the marksman would consent to give an exhibition of his skill after considerable urging on the part of his'friends. Baising his six-shooter the celebrity would address the stranger: "Do you see that man smoking a cigar about two blocks down the street there? I'll hit the cigar without making the man bat an eye." Bang! went the six-shooter, and back came the cry up the street: "See here, Bill, you have got to stop this thing. That's the fourth cigar you have spoiled for me today. I don't like it. Get somebody else topractice on." The astonished stranger could always be depended on after such an exhibition "to set up" the marks man and his friends. One day there appeared a visitor %HE ALLEGED MASKSMAN CAME BACK LOOKING GLUM. less credulous than his predecessors. After the usual exhibition this stranger appeared scornful of the feat. "That's nothing," he declared. "That does not prove you can shoot. I'll wager $100 you can't hit a barn door at 100 yards!" The marksman took him up, and followed by the crowd retired with him to the back of the store for the test. A shot was heaTd, and Bhortly afterwards the alleged marksman came back looking very glum. "What's the matter, Bill?" asked the man whose duties behind the counter had kept him from enjoying the tenderfoot's discomfiture. "Mattert" growled Bill. "Matter enough. That greenhorn set the door up edgewise!"Boston Transcript. UNDERSOLD BY THE BOSS, HEEE are many men in "Business who^tand'in their own light by not treating their employees with proper consideration,?' says Captain "William Shelley of the treasury department. "For example, there came into a country store a regular customer who wanted to buy a stove. The clerk, an experienced man in the business, showed the entire stock of stoves, and the one which best suited the customer was marked $20. The regular customer wanted a reduction on account of the large amount of trading done by him every year. The clerk admitted that he had a right to some consideration, and finally offered the stove for $18. That was not satisfactory to the customer, who went to the proprietor with his story. Very soon he came back and announced that the proprietor had agreed to give it to him for $17. "Thereupon the clerk went to the proprietor and asked him if he had made such an agreement without consulting or informing the clerk, and the proprietor admitted that he had done so. Then the clerk went back to the customer and said: "You can have this stove for $16. never allow anyone to undersell me." Where Feminine Fancy Lights S Name PATTERN NO 4711.

He is among the more independent republicans of the* house, and found full play for this characterises in the recent discussion of the statehood bill, which he vigorously opposed. His speeches on this subject ~attracted crowds to the gallery, tho some of his auditors de clare him more witty than wise.

"Adam," he said, "that was a magnificent speech of yours on the rule sending the statehood bill to conference.'' "Thank you, major," said Bede. "Praise from Sir Hubert, you know." "Yes," said Major McDowell, again. "It was a magnificent speech. But,, by the way, what side of the statehood question are you on?"Boston Transcript. NOT A PAINLESS DENTIST. 41 IOHN HENRY," said Mr. Sterlingworth, severely, to his son, as he led him by the right ear into a room in the rear of the house, "your mother tells me that you stuck a pin into Mr. Molar when he was here this afternoon, calling upon your sister, and that he jumped up and left the house, declaring that he would never call here again." John Henry nodded. "You seem to have the facts, papa," he said. "Before I thrash you within an inch of your life, my son," Mr. Sterlingworth went on, as he reached for his cane, "let me say that this whipping will hurt you considerably more^than it will hurt me." I know that," said John Henry, with heroie fortitude. I also wish to know," Mr. Sterlingworth said, "before I begin, what possessed you to act in so shameful a manner, and to drive ^way the only beau that Ethel has had in two years? Now, tell me." "Well, Mr. Molar is a dentist, and "Go on, sir." I will, papa. II Youyou I asked him if he was a painless dentist, and he said he was but I wasn't sure, so I thought I'd ex periment.

A stunning table it was, undoubtedly. A young bluejacket paused before it. He stood quite still for some minutes, with his bronzed young face and his neat nautical togs, staring with the most ardent and respectful admiration at the young ladies before him. Then, with a half sigh, he laid a piece of silver down and turned away. 'Won't you have something for your money?' one of the ladies called.

Or, in the tenth case, should the little lady really succeed in keeping her date she no sooner begins to enter into the games with her girl playmates than her carriage and maid are announced at the door. The rebell ing miss is hurried off to the hair doc tor's or the music teacher's and further fun that day is out of the question. Nor is this in any way an exaggera tion.

LEGEND OF THE LEMON It is said when our first parents were driven out of the Garden of Eden they prudently resolved to take with them the seeds of certain fruit trees. According to Adam, the apple was the fruit most to be desired in the out side world, but Eve, who could not for give tjie fruit which had been the cause of their troubles, hid in her bosom a couple of orange pips, one of which she dropped just outside Eden. The seedling, missing the balmy breezes of paradise, degenerated sadly, still it grew to maturity and produced fruit, but it was acid, and it had lost its rich color and turned pale. Some say that a tear dropped upon the pip, and that this caused the tree it pro duced to bear fruit which was both elongated and sour. This legend is cur rent in some parts of southern Europe, but the idea that the lemon is a sort of degraded orange, is probably new to Defective Page r^- n- T,HEsNdarandInnocente O Cf Only Coffee For 10 Tears.

And he said to his father, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went,'* (Matt. xxi. 28, 29). Then said Christiana, So be it, Amen.

Come in, thou daughter of Abraham. W were talking of thee but now, for tidings have come to us be fore, how thou art become a pilgrim. Come, children, come in come, maiden, come in. So he had them all into the house. So when they were within, they were bidden sit down and rest them the which when they had done, those that attended upon the pilgrims in the house came into the room to see them. And one smiled, and another smiled, and they all smiled for joy that Chris tiana was become a pilgrim. They also looked upon the boys they stroked them over the faces with the hand, in token of their kind reception of them. They also carried it lovingly to Mercy and bid them all Welcome into their Master's house. After a while, be cause supper was not ready, the Interpreter took them into his Significant Rooms, and showed them what Christiana's husband had "seen some time before. Here, therefore, they saw the man in the cage, the man and his dream, the man that cut his way thru his enemies, and the picture of the biggest of them all, together, with the rest of those things that were then so profit able to Christian.

Then said Christiana, I persuade myself that I know somewhat the meaning of this for this is a figure of 4 man of this world is it not, good sir? InterpreterThou hast said the right, said he and this muck rake doth show his carnal mind. And whereas thou seest him give heed to rake np straws and sticks, and the dust of the floor, than to what He says that calls to him from above with the celestial crown in his hand it is to show that Heaven is but 4 fable to some, and that things here are counted the only things substantial. Now, whereas it was also showed thee that the man could look no way but down wards it is to let thee know that earthly things, when they are with power upon men's minds quite carry their thoughts away from God.
