The annual banquet of the members of the military order of Loyal Legion of the United States, commandery of Cali fornia, which was held last night at the Hotel Nadeau in this city, was one of the most recherche events of its kind that has occurred for some time past. The guests, about sixty in number, most of whom were decorated with the badge of the order, a maltese cross,with the inscription, "Lex Regit Anna Tuenter," suspended by a red. white and blue ribbon, were received in one of the hotel parlors by the following committee of arrangements, which was composed of local officets: President, Major H. T. Lee; first vice-president, Major W. H. Bonsall; second vice-presi dent, Majpr E. F. 0. Klokke; secretary, Companion Charles S. Gilbert; treasu rer, Captain W. H. Seamans. Shortly after!) o'clock the guests were ushered into the dining room, where Chief Engineer John W. Moore, U. S. N., vice commander, was called upon to preside over the festivities. After discussing a dinner that the Nadeau chef might well be proud of, Major H. T. Lee, as toast master, pro posed "The President of the United States." "The Army" was gallantly responded to by Major-General A. Mcl). McCook; after which Colonel 11. G. Shaw read a poem, entitled "Matilda Jane," from the pen of Major Eldeikin, very effectively. In response to "The State of California," Captain W. H. Seamans read a letter from Governor elect 11. H. Markham, which evoked great enthusiasm. "The Navy" was responded to by Master T. F. Laycock, while Colonel W. R. Smedberg re sponded to that of "The Military Order of the Loyal Legion, Commandery of California.'' This last toast was followed by a song, entitled "The Loyal Legioneer," in which all joined. Captain T. J. Carran replied in an eloquent speech to "The United States Volunteers," while Colonel W. R. Smedberg closed the programme by reading a poem by Colonel Horatio 0. King, in response to "Our Departed Companions." The following is a complete list of the guests who participated in the evening's festivities: Major E. W. Jones, Captain J. A. Os j good, Col. George 11. Kimball, Col. H. IG. Otis, Lieutenant 11. G.

A Writer Tells of One of the Happiest Traveling Experiences of His Life —A Demure Little Miss Captivates Him with Her Ingenuousness. I believe some flirtations do a man positive good The same may possibly be said of a woman, but being a man myself 1 am not so sure about it. I was recently returning to Kansas City from tin eastern trip. I had trav eled two nights and a day, and my jour ney had been uneventful and tedious enough. I was in a particularly suscep tible mood, I think, and perhaps too ready for any diversion that promised to make the last day of my journey a pleas ant one. It was at Roodhouse, Ills., 1 think, that a young lady of striking beauty entered our car. Almost every avail able seat was occupied. She came more than half the distance of the car and J stopped opposite to me. I removed a I package from the seat I was occupying I and offered her a place beside me, which the at once accepted. As she sat down I had a good oppor- i tunity to note her appearance. She was ! rather small and evidently quite young, though she had a manner and an ex»J pression of face that indicated knowledge and culture beyond her apparent years, j She was exceedingly attractive. She | had an open, ingenuous manner, an in- I nocent soul that spoke unmistakably j through her dreamy blue eyes, and the prettiest of red lips. Her hair was j golden and her complexion was perfect, and she presented a picture that almost fascinated me, UNCONSCIOUS FAMILIARITY. I cannot remember now how we be came acquainted. Ido not even remem ber the first words spoken. I only re member that we were soon engaged in an interesting conversation without any feeling of restraint or embarrassment, j On my part, at least, it was one of those rare meetings where the stranger seemed more like an old friend than a new ac quaintance. She asked me many ques tions, which 1 answered to the best of my knowledge, and in turn I plied her with interrogatories on many different subjects; for, while there was nothing strikingly brilliant in her replies, she had a style of expression and other indi vidual characteristics of speech that made me want to hear her talk continu ously, and then she had an innocent and yet appealing look that enhanced the in terest tenfold. We must have shown our sudden Ilk- Ing for each other, and yet no one seem- j ed to take any heed of us, even though . we were in a railway car, where people have little employment other than to ! watch each other or to fall asleep. We became better acquainted and more interested in each other. As the young lady grew enthusiastic over a j scene we were passing she laid her hand, which I saw was lily white and dainty, on my arm, nor did she seem conscious of the act. Some time afterward, in an animated conversation, she leaned toward me un til her face was near to mine, and after 1 a moment 1 discovered that her arm was lying on my shoulders, though 1 could not remember when she placed it 1 there. And what may seem stranger still is that neither of us seemed at the time to think that our conduct might be f improper or that any one would take special notice of it. There are some people who can ex- : press more mischief in a look than ! others could possibly put into a caress, j I have already said enough to show that I thought no less of this young lady on j account of her conduct, which I saw was the outgrowth of innocence. On the j contrary, 1 was charmed by it. SHE KISSED HIM AT PARTING. 1 learned with much pleasure that my new acquaintance would not leave the car until we reached Odessa, which was j only an hour's ride from my own desti- | nation. Instead of longing for the end i to. come I found myself consulting the time table frequently and counting the distance to Odessa, begrudging each mile the engine made. I had no other motive than to make the most of this acquaintance during the few hours to which it was necessarily limited. I did not even learn the young lady's full name. Incidentally I learned that her Christian name was Mabel, though I re member now having heard her speak of | herself as Maine. That thia unexpected meeting made a great impression on us both you will bet ter understand when 1 describe our parting. On reaching Odessa 1 accom panied her to the platform, where 1 as sured her of my feeling of obligation for such a happy day. She seemed equally grateful to me. As the bell rung for the train to start 1 turned to say good-by, when to my surpi-ise Bhe put her arms about my neck and kissed me. Tho ac tion was as innocent and, despite its ir regularity, as modest as if 1 had been a brother. There was not a sign of a blush, and uot a word was spoken. Somehow 1 felt no embarraisment on account of what had happened. As 1 stepped on the moving train I i. lt that while we should probably never meet again our acquaintance had been a great pleasure and a refining benefit to me. I do not think that flirtation in gen eral should be encouraged. 1 am sure of it. Just what effect such a meeting and such a proceeding as 1 have de scribed might have on girls of different ages and temperaments 1 will not at tempt to Bay But in this instance lam sure I did no harm. There is not the slightest tinge of conscience as 1 remem ber the trustful, innocent expression in those dreamy blue eyes as the fair maiden kissed me good-by. The time will doubtless come when she would treat me differently under the same cir cumstances. Her years alone plead strongly in excuse of what 1 have re lated, i learned from her parents, who, by the way, accompanied her, that she is now 2| years old. —Chicago Times. A Hero of n Practical Joke. A young man of about 25 is just now the hero of a select circle of friends iv the southern section of the city, and in view of his peculiar history he quite de serves to bo lionized. Five years ago he was a clerk in a bank on a meager sal ary, and one time some of the same de voted friends of these days thought it would be a good joke to pretend the bank had been robbed, and warn him that he was suspected. This a number did, only they called him up about mid night, so as to give the joke a more natural appearance. After telling him that two hours before burglars had stolen $50,000 in bank notes, they added that the police were now on the way to arrest him as a suspect. •It so happened that he had but two hours before been in the vicinity of the bank, and fearful of not being able to prove an alibi, he gathered his available belongings together and caught an early morning train for the north. Of course there was a big row in the vicinity of the young fellow's home and his funny friends had to leave town. Fortunately the young fellow was a bachelor, and he was not hunted up. Recently he wrote to an old acquaintance here from Can ada, and the latter in replying to the long lost youth told him the truth about the bank joke. Then the young feUow came back, but not as he went away. He rode in a parlor car and swelled around in a hack. He had gone to Mon treal and after the first shock had settled down to work and gradually by lucky speculation had grown rich.—Philadel phia Enquirer. Vancouver's Big Bridge. The great steel bridge across the Co lumbia river at Vancouver will be a mammoth concern. It will be 6,000 feet from the Washipgton to the Oregon shore. It will be double tracked, with a roadway on top for teams, and will be erected upon pneumatic piers. The piv otal pier, or draw pier, will support a draw which will give an opening of 200 feet space on either side for vessels to pass, and the span immediately south of the draw span will be 375 feet. The whole structure is to be of steel, built ten feet above the high water of 187Q and forty feet above low water. On account of the sandy formation it will be necessary to go down eighty feet below low water to get a firm founda tion. There it rests on a foundation of coarse gravel similar to that upon which the great bridges across the Missouri river are built. This gigantic structure will cost over $1,000,000, and employ hundreds of men in its erection. It will be Jan. 1, 1892, before the cars can pass over it. The company is pushing its bridge and also its road as fast as men and money and its present perfected plans will permit. It has now between here and Kalama over 2,000 men and 1,500 teams at work.—Columbian. Anglophobia in France. It would be a pretty question whether the English or the Germans are the more heartily detested in Paris. It is certain that the rancors of Waterloo have not been softened by the humiliations of Se dan. The fact is that your Frenchman has an unlimited capacity of hatred. A newspaper has been started which is called The Union Franco-Russe, and the main object is to rake up stale fictions and to invent new libels on the English people. In curious contrast to the vul gar dislike is the undisguised admiration of English people and English customs which runs through the smart circles of Parisian society. They imitate the cut of our coats and reproduce the latest thing in London hats; they buy English horses and English guns; they talk En glish slang. They always did admire English girls, but that was inevitable. It is a higher compliment when they copy English dandies.—St. James' Ga zette. A Trump with 81,400. The worshipers at St. Bonifacius' Ro man Catholic church, on Norris square, were excited on Saturday evening by the discovery of a sleeping man in the organ loft. He was put out, but shortly after ward returned, when he was arrested. On being searchod at tho station house $1,000 in English gold was found about his person. When he was asked where he got the money he pulled out $400 more in Bank of England note 3, and told the following stcry: "I lived on a farm in England. My mother dying a short time ago I sold the farm and cam; over here one week ago. On Friday night I slept at a fifteen-cent lodging houso tit Ninth and Race streets with the money on my per son. I don't see why you think it strange that I have so much money." The man had the look of a typical tramp.—Philadelphia Record. Tall Story from Clarion. Near Raine's flour mill 6tands a hem lock tree, which is probably 100 feet high, at the but i, is all of six feet in cir cumference and ia minus of limbs at least ten feet up its jagged trunk. On the extreme top of tho tree a wild grape vino blossomed and bore fruit this sea son, and a number of tho young lad? have climbed tho tree at various times to secure the fruit. Dr. E. M. Sloan's littlo daughter, 7 years old, was missed from homo tho other day, and her mother discovered her standing on ono of the topmost limbs of the old hemlock, gath ering grape 3. Tho child camo down as nimbly as a squirrel. It was a daring feat.—Clarion Republican. Yachtsmen Threatened by a Waterspout. During tho severe storm which pre vailed 4iero and over tho Sound Oct. 19 a huge waterspout was seen off Charles Island. A party of New Haven yachts men were close to it in a naphtha launch, and for a time were in danger of being swamped. The waterspout came from a southerly direction. It drew up the water of the Sound and created addi tional disturbance to the turbulent sea. It finally broke between Charles Island and Burns' Point by the wind changing to northwest. It would have been de structive to any boat which came iv its path.—Cor. New Haven Register. Eighteen thousand acres of land, heav ily timbered with hemlock and other hard woods, the last of the famous Penn sylvania hemlock belt, has been con veyed by J. K. P. Hall, Ridgway, to Andrew Kanl, of St. Mary's; Sampson Short, of North East, and S. S. Bullis, Olean, N. Y. Tho purchase price was 1360,000. This land lies in the vicinity of St. Mary's and Johnsonburg. Three railroads rim into it. There are 20.000,000 acres of unsur veyed land in tho state of Washington, and much of that great extent of coun try is almost impenetrable, being cov ered with a magnificent growth of the finest kind of timber.

Boswell, a young and skillful dentist, who, coming from Balti more, located in London last spring, had the honor of pulling a tooth from the royal mouth of the fair Princess Maud of Wales last week. It was a wisdom tooth and it hated to let go. The prin cess screamed like a locomotive. Dr. Boswell got £10 (SSO) for the job, and of course the advertisement is a priceless one. As for the royal tooth, the doctor has mounted it and enshrined it in a vel vet case.—Eugene Field in Chicago News. Child Suicides. The Medical and Surgical Reporter is authority for the statement that from Jan. 1 to Sept. 1, 1890, 62 children—46 boys and 16 girls—committed suicide in Berlin. Of this number 24 had attained the age of 15,14 their 14th year, 9 their 13th, while 7 were only 12 years of age and 1 had not attained the age of 7. In most of the cases the immediate cause for the act remains a secret, but it is supposed to have been due to exceptional severity on the part of servants or teach era. I Jumping .Jacks.
