Now that Pat Crowe has been ac

wonder what will be the name of the

Alter dining Booker T. Washington

It seems so.

" Red, White and Blue," is the
brand of a codec sold in England. To

A resident of London, England, says

Anthony, Uncle Russell Sage and
Hetty Green is called to this.
Carrie Nation was ejected from a
saloon in Hot Springs, Ark., recently,
and lodged in jail, charged with dis
turbing the peace. The authorities
should have sentenced Carrie to take
a bath. Perhaps one or two of her
ideas of destroying other people's
property, could have been boiled out.
While Congressman Longworth high
ly appreciates, no doubt, the many
beautiful and costly presents given in
a kindly spirit to his wife, coming as
tbey have from the four quarters of
the Earth, yet be probably frowns at
the thought of being compelled to
spend $500,000 in erecting a building
to store the same.
The press of Washington should not
cease hammering away, so to speak,
until Uncle Sam duly establishes a
life-saving station at Neah Bay, with
all the latest and beet facilities for
rescuing humanity who may be ship
wrecked, in future. One life saved
more than repays all financial expense
of creating the same.
In my opinion, the cartoon appear
ing in the Spokesman-Review some
time ago, entitled " Senator Mitchell's
Record" was the best thing in that
line ever printed. A band is pictured
as if writing a letter, while a woman
representing the State of Oregon is
weeping, and underneath is the fol

It may be news to old-timers to

this, and started the Slav, a dramatic

Something was evidently wrong at
the Alice-Nicholas wedding. There
were Chinamen and Japs, but no
"colored"gentlemen, except the wait
ers. I failed to read of Booker T.
Washington as among the swells and
nabobs. Did " Teddy" forget Booker?
Has he drawn the color line? Perhaps
the President thinks the presence of
the negro may be fine and dandy as
guests of your daughter's wedding, but
when it comes to bis daughter's mar
riage—well, the negro as an invited
guest, was not there.
People who have strolled hand in
hand most of their life, with poverty
as a boon companion, should not take
serious stock in the bibical quotation,
" Cast not your pearls before swine,
lest tbey trample tbem under foot,
and turn again and rend you," for I
have noticed that folk always quoting
the proverb, have not the money, as a
rule, half the time to liquidate their
honest and legitimate debts when due,
let alone be in possession of pearls to
cast before swine, or even those whom
they chose to designate as having a
diseased brain, so so speak. I say this
is my experience, caring not what
that of others may have been.

ninth that supply. Artificial ice is,
however, purer, and the cost of pro

A Yakima farmer, at Sunnyside, is
noted in the Democrat, as having
adopted a milking-machine, to ex
tract the lacteal fluid from his band of
fourteen cows. He milks two cows
at a time, with rubber cups that fit the
sources of supply attached to a j-hoso
leading to a force pump, to produce a
vacuum, thence to the recopticle to
hold the milk. It takes but four
minutes to milk the cows, with scsrce
ly more power than is required to run
a sewing-machine. This device was
patonted a quarter of a century ago,
but for some reason never came into
general use. It may be, however,
that it is now introduced in more

"Johnny-on-the-Spot" is the namo

Boosters are said to have utilized as a
means of propagandism of their Port

matches on, to wear under the vest,
instead of on the hip of the pants,
where matches are usually struck. It
looks to an impartial observer, how
ever, that it is A mistake to wear it
inside the vest. Why not hang the
banner on the outer walls—say the
lapel of the coat—so that it may be
seen of all men? These" Scratch-my
backs" are to be scattered far and

device has probably not struck its

A five-year-old daughter of Mr. and

The Spokane Outburst is nothing if
not original, and its wit and humor is
a salient feature of its individuality,
and commands attention and respect
Here is a paragraph, however, which
ia primarily a business proposition
which seldom carry the sharp points
The Oulburtl wishes to engage the
services o( a lady capable of handling
the society gossip of this city in a breezy,
independent, and interesting manner.
She must be well-acquainted, and will
receive satisfactory remuneration by the
column of matter used. Communica
tions on the subject, addressed to the
editor, will be treated in the strictest
confidence. Experience is by no means
necessary. Any one with a few reams
of paper, a pencil and an elastic imagi
nation will till the bill. As the task
consists in making readable some things
out of blank nothingness, the work is by
no means as strenuous as would be the
case if it were necessary to substantiate
items by facts. Matter which contains
the words " charming," " popular," or
" pretty" more than a hundred times in
any one column will be relegated to the
limbo of the yawning waste basket.
What the Outburtt wants iB originality
and unorthodox treatment of the sub
jects handled, and it is willing to pay
well for it. There is a grave suspicion
tiiat the present gossip editor is herself
preparing to break into society, and the
management believes that her days of
usefulness will have passed with her

That " truth is stranger than fic
tion," is shown by an authentic story
that comes from Pensacola, Fla., of
late date. It is that Abraham Little
ton, of that city, lost forty-one years
ago, at the time of the explosion of
the ill-fated Sultana, on ttie Missis
sippi, during the Civil war, a large
silver watch, which was in a pocket of
a garment blown from his body. A
few days ago, Mr. Littleton joined a
sbark-fishing party at Pensacola, and
among the shark caught was a large
one, and a young surgeon present,
from mere curiosity opened its stom
ach, and among other things the long
lost watch was found. It possessed
such characteristics as to be easily
identified by its owner. The watch
had evidontly been in the shark's
stomach over two score of years,
which is a splendid evidence of the
excellence of workmanship and ma
terial. This anecdote is based upon
the Chicago Tribune for stability, but
it hardly requires the stretch of imagi
nation to swallow it as the story of
Jonah and the whale, which has the
Bible for support.
A MOTHER'S CARE.
It May Sometimes Be Effective Though Wielded
by Those Adjudged to be Incompetent.
Somebody in San Francisco, it is
said, is willing to give a New Orleans
woman $75,000 for her girl baby. The
man whose wife yearns for the little
one is said to be very rich. The wo
man whose child is coveted is a widow,
very poor, living in two rooms and
supporting herself and child by drudg
" How nice it would be," a reader
exclaims," for that child to be adopt
ed into a homo of wealth and 1 uxury!
How lucky she would be to have no
future of penury, of struggles with the
world! By the renunciation—aban
ment—of her mother, she would gain
woalth, luxury, culture, refinement
(possibly). In the end a rich hus
band and high social position. In
poverty she would have few advant
ages, many hardships and doubtless
great temptations. Surely a loving
mother could not hesitate when the
creature dearest to her in all the world
has so much to gain, and that child so
much to lose, if the offer be rejected.
And see what the mother would gain
too, a competence for life."
Is this true? If money and social
position, and luxury and education,
were the chief things to be desired,
then the mother is in error, according
to my opiuion.
But peehaps there is another side to
Who is the proper and best guardian
of a child?
Why, her mother. One cannot over
come the argument on so self-evident
a proposition. Can the wisest, most
loving, most indulgent foster-mother
successfully take the place of a child's
own mot her? Let any mother answer
And are riches, luxury and social
position a fair return for a mother's
care and guidance? Is poverty such
an unmixed evil that a child would
gain by losing its mother and getting
all that wealth could give in exchange?
Homilies have been delivered on the
blessings of poverty. The soul is de
veloped through struggles with en
vironment aud natural tendencies. If
a boy or girl, though poor, has the
qualities that make for success, pov
erty alone will not prevent achieve
ment, but will rather prove a spur to
ambition and industry, whereas, if
wealth be the child's birthright, a
great incentive to ambition will be

next four years for carrying the mails.
The weighing will occupy about 100
days. The railroads will be paid for
four years on a basis of what is car
ried during the test period. This
plan makes it easy to pad the mails
during the weighing period. It has
been charged time and again that dur
ing the mail weighing season the
mails have been loaded down with
public documents sent out under con
gressional frank and shipped from
point to point, weighed and reweighed
time and again during the weighing
season. That the payments made to
railroads for transporting the mails
are responsible for the deficit in the
postal department is well known.
Forty millions of dollars are paid
every year to railroad corporations for
mail service. Found for pound the
railroads charge 600 per cent, more for
mail carrying than tbey do for express
carrying, and instead of furnishing
cars as tbey do to the express compa
nies, tbey charge Uncle Sam a rental
for the mail cars that annually equals
the cost of the cars, and in many cases
WHOLE NUMBER 2,887.
Women who suffer with disorders pecu
liar to their sex should write to Dr. l'ieree
and receive free the advice of a physician
of over forty yoars' experience—a skilled
and successful specialist in the diseases
of women. Every letter has the most
careful consideration and is regarded as
morally confidential. Many sensitively
modest women write fully to I)r. Pierce
what they would shrink from telling to
their local phyalcian. Tin* local physician
is pretty sure to say that he cannot do
anything without" an examination." Dr.
Pierce holds that these distasteful exam
inations are generally needless, and that
no woman, except in rare cases, should
submit to them.
Dr. Pierce's treatment cures in the
privacy of your home. His "Favorite
Prescription" has cured hundreds of
thousands of bad cases. It is the only
medicine of its kind that is the product
of a regularly graduated physician. Some
unscrupulous medicine dealers may offer
