TERMS OF SUBSCRIPTIONS On yaar by nail, poatago said - - 3-Or OacaMBt " " - M tk, by irriw ..... .OS Hon. James E. Watson was hon ored by Speaker Henderson in being appointed as one of the members of the committee to submit resolutions in memory of the late President Mc Kinley. 'In accordance with a well known sociological law the ignorant or reck less agitator has been the really effective friend of the evils which he has been nominally opposing." President's Message. Sec a tor Fairbanks starts in promptly looking after the interest of V.a constituents. Yesterday he called up the Indiana war claim, amounting to some six or seven hun dred thousand dollars. He also in troduced two pension bills for Indi ana soldiers. Oklahoma will no doubt be ad vanced to statehood by the present congress. The territory has about 4(K),000 population, which is more than any of the new states bad when admitted into the union. Senator Fairbanks introduced a bill today for tb admission of Oklahoma. The President's message has re ceived practically unanimous ap proval by the Republican press. Democratic papers of course find ob jections to it, for the message is sim ply a vigorous and frank statement of the Republican position on all the leading questions now before the peopie. Xnose wno expected an ex ploitation of specific cures for all the ills that the body politic is heir to are of course disappointed. There still seems to be a crazy no tion in some localities not a thousand miles from here that there is danger in Richmond from smallpox. As a matter of fact there is no smallpox here. The last patient is entirely -wett, though sttl being quarantined as an extreme precautionary meas ure. The health authorities have treated the public with the utmost frank-cess and honesty in this mat ter, believinc that to be the best policy. Nothing has been concealed. While there is a good deal of reason to ekiubt whether the disease is (or, rather, was) genuine smallpox the health officers took the right course in acting on the theory that it was and thereby preventing any possi bility of its spreading. But whatever it was, Richmond is entirely free , A . from the disease now, and persons ia - outside communities who are keeping up the senseless scare are doing so , either for selfish purposes or through I dense ignorance.

Itesides. the I'Mshifr and cooing were altogether too real:" : "You are not the Brst 'to- lie fitoled by fhe-hird," Mr. T. replied-. "Only a few dayago a nearby plumber, whose name happened to be Joe, called to do a small job of repairing, and the work was begun before I left in the morning, but the man left suddenly, the work waa unfinished, and no explanations were given. "The next morning I called at the shop and took the workman to task and was told thA. unless 1 could make my serv ant behave another plumber would have to finish the job. He said that when he began work he was called to an adjoining room only to be laughed at by the serv ant, who kept out of sight and called out: "'You old rascal. aud "You're a beaut, Joe; you are." and when he answered she cried 'Sick 'fill!' and guyed him ail the time. . "IVi'H. you can understand I had hard work to make the man believe that it was only a parrot, but he felt cheap enough at being so badly fooled. "Sometimes Joe is very embarrassing. A very dear old lady friend visits us who is somewhat of an invalid and has rather a distressing cough aud other 'leeuliarities that can lie plainly hoard, all of which Joe imitates iu the precise tones, with more than natural emphasis, sneezing and blowing his nose aud coughing distress ingly. "He counts, repeats the alphabet, spells many words, whistles, knocks on his perch like some one at the door aud then enters into conversation. 'Why. come right in: sit down; nice day. Are yon cold?' he says until he has had enough, ami then he says, 'Goodby: . m ajrain.' Honiwiuiea we have callera that Joe seems to dislike, and he will keep on with his goodbys until people hurry tiff, and in these cases he never invites them to come again. "If there is a doubtful statement made, Joe is sure to cry "KatsT with such vol ume as sometimes to upset the composure of the company. He drives a horse with all the spirit of the horse trainer and seems to enjoy it. You can fairly see the race. "Last year when we moved to our sum mer cottage Joe was sent on a load of goods instead of being taken with us on the cars, as usual. Joe's cage was care fully secured on the seat beside the driv er. "We arrived at the cottage several hours beyond the customary time for the arrival of the wagon anJ became anxious about our gcods. but particularly about Joe. Our fears were not relieved when the wagon drew iu sight with the parrot oajje missing from the driver's seat, and there was a chorus of 'Where's Joe? "With face flushed with anger, the dnver replied: "Urat the baste, or burd or whatever he is. not a thiug cud I do wid him. You know yourself the load I had on. au' it was all tne horsi-s cud pull, an' when everything would ! g iiu" well the bnrd would scream: "Whoa! Back tip!" 1 thought tnex-if it was me own voice, an so did me horses, an" it's a wonder we're hre yit. That burd is pos sessed, lie has a divil in him. 1 thought we'd not git here tonight. So 1 buried the burd wid boxes on the back of the load an' covered him wid a blanket, an', with all respects to you. sor. I hope he is aslape, an" may he niver wake! "Joe tells when he is cold or wants j anything, and. above all, nothing annoys him so much as to call him "Polly." WbenJ we put him on the porch, the children, of course, never fail to 'Polly' him. so that now when Joe sees a child he remarks in various tones of children's voices: "I'retty Polly! Polly wants a cracker! And that seems to be Joe's estimate of their intelli gence. A neighbor who had doubtingly beard wonderful stories of Joe took the bird to keep after a serious fire we had one night When the family were seated for break fast. Joe in a very sad voice remarked: " "We are all burned out." "The neighbor said to me later. I will believe anything I am told about Joe now.
