Governor Van Sant of Minnesota i5 a mild-mannered and obliging man, but after a recent incident, in which he was the central figure, he remarked with sincere feeling: "It's a long worm that has no turn. ing, and its about time to turn when I am made a side-show feature." He visited the St. Louis Fair and entered a restaurant with his secre tary, searching for a hasty lunch. The Governor was recognized, and shown all possible attention, but as he was about to begin cating, he was surprised to hear the "barker" out side the tent shout, as he swung the dinner-bell vigorously: "Step right this way to get your Nice warm lunch. Only chance you may ever have to see the Governor of Minnesota eat. He is just sitting down to the table, and he can't get through for half an hour. Plenty of time to watch the whole performance and shake his hand when he gets through. Come right in and watch dim feed, and it won't cost you one cent extra, as long as you order the regular bill .of fare." In a few minutes the tent was crowded, and the blushing Governor and his fidgety secretary had to grin and bear it, until they could obtain their purposely delayed orders, and show the crowd how the Chief Ex ecutive "fed" when he is roaming at large, WHERE FREEDOM SHRIEKED. When W. J. Bryan was making his oratorical campaign, he found himself one Sunday in a little town of the northwest, the chief institu tion in which was the state peniten tiary. The warden, an ardent admirer of the democratic leader, invited him to address the convicts on some patriotic subject, and Mr. Bryan readily acceeded, though, as he afterwards explained, he did not expect to get many votes thereby. "It was one of the best audiences I ever addressed," said he afterwards. "I usually hold my hearers pretty well, but I may say that never before or since have I talked to a consider able meeting without having one single man get up and go out. Of course I had to be rather careful in my choice of a subject. It seemed to me that any impassioned tribute to the blessings of freedom would be out of place, but I found later that my compunctions on this subject were quite baseless. When I had finished the chaplain requested all present to rise and join in singing 'America,' and I assure you that no lie of our national anthem was roared out with more genuine enthusiasm by these striped convicts than "Sweet land of liberty!" PRESIDENT BUCHANAN'S TREAT. Ex-Senator James L. Pugh of Ala bama has many interesting remin iscences to relate. One story he told the other day related to some famous i whiskey which President Buchanan had at the White House in 1860. The equestrian statue of Washing ton in the circle between Twenty third and Twenty-fourth streets was unveiled one day in the early part of February, 1860," said Senator Pugh. "Of course, the president and his cabinet had to be there too. "About two hours before the ceremonies were to occur I met a congressman and suggested that we go by the White House and see old 'Buck,' as we called the president. "Maybe he'll put out some of that fine old whisky we have heard so much about,' I said. 'They say its' fine, and I am quite anxious to taste it, and as the weather is so terrible he will probably treat.' "Sure enough one of the first things the president did was to suggest that we might be dry and need warming up on such a cold, damp day. He called the whisky 'Insurrection,' whisky because it was some distilled along about 1785 when George Wash ington had to go to Pennsylvania himself to assist in puting down the riots that broke out in that state. "This whisky was over eighty years old the day 'Old Buck' asked us to take a drink with him. I was anxious to taste it to find out if it was better than any other, but it wasn't a bit better than What we are drinking right now, gentlemen. "In those days we didn't drink out of glasses such as we have now. They were large tumblers, and when the decanter was passed over to me by the president himself I took what you may call a sockdolager-the tumbler nearly two-thirds full. • The president noticed it and he said: "Pugh you take a h- of a big drink, but I suppose it is due to the weather, and I will take a good sized one myself. "The president never allowed any man to have the second drink of 'Insurrection' whisky. One was all, but he was most hospitable, and when not busy it was his custom to invite congressmen to take a smile with him, and you could get other brands afterward. THANKSGIVING SERVICES.

FRANCIS POOL Rumor has been current that the Great Northern intends to organize a land company to take over all the business now conducted by the land department. At present the land be longing to the company is over 8,000 000 acres, and it is its desire to popu late it with the very best settlers and build up the resources of the west. A number of men from the east are in the city, inspecting the possibili ties of Northern Montana for farming and grazing lands with irrigation fa cilities. They are delegates from late land owners in Canada who have'sold their ranches and farms in that coun try.
