HONORED DEAD. Twenty-one years ago, yesterday, the darkest tragedy known to history was enacted at Ford's theatre in Waahing- ton. On that memorable day, when the country waa filled with rejoicing over the termination of a cruel civil war, Abraham Lincoln waa most foully assas sinated by John Wilkea Booth. It was not until the assassin's bullet bad pene trated the brain of our noblest pros! dent that the veil hiding his greatness waa torn aside, revealing to the country the true character of the man whose loss could never be replaced. Twentyone years of tepid progression In all thing baa not dimmed his memory, tor it Is even dearer now than In those first days of bereavement, when the country mourned lor turn ana could not be com forted. Ilia me, character and work has t'been analyzed and written about more than any man of the century, and yet no person has ever discovered a dis honest act committed by him, or aoy deed that would lower him In the es teem of the people, ' Lincoln still liyes, though dead.

This act ahall be In force from and after its publication in the official state.paper. Approved February 19, lStto. Wn notice a paper among our ex changes called the Osage City Free Press. The nauseating sucker and taffy giving editor of the Topeka Bute Journal having: called our attention to the fact that brilliant prragraphs occa aionally appeared In It, we carefully scanned its columns. The paper bears the stamp of pride and brings a vision to our eyea of an editor whose brains have left his head to occupy h la belly. The name of the editor does not appear on the paper, but be Is prooably some old ' chestnut, who imagines that because he edited . , a paper for a number of year he la the leading expo nent of western Journalism. The gen eral tone of the sheet give exchanges this hint, "you tickle me and I'll tickle you." It perhaps ill becomes ua to ex pose the policy of the Free Press, for the editor pays the Mews men this hand some compliment: "The young gentle. men who are, at present, engsged all over that paper (the lisws) are yen smart it might be said that they are quite flip very fly, so to spesk " We acknowledge this little notice and while a blush mounts our scarcely twenty-one year old cheek wish to remark modestly that we "young men" are very grateful to the Free Pres for such kindly notice and It ia our chief ambition to be able to win the golden opinion of the Lord High Everything Else of Kansas Jour nalism. Thb News says that "the Inter State Collegiate Oratorical contest will be held in this city on the 6th of May." In appropriation editorial and news matter trom other pacer and running it original the News man should exercise more care in making the necessary change in the phraseology. Tbe Item in which tbe above appears is from tne Lawrence uazette. in whicn place tne contest will take place Instead of Em porta, a tne enterprising successor ed itor of tbe News makes it appear In that paper. tmporla Democrat. We regret the typographical error that made the News announce the Inter State contest would be held In this city in stead or Lawrence, As to clipping an item trom the Lawrence Gazette, we do not remember as to whether we did or not. One thing is certain, however, the item waa worth clipping and publish ing. Aa to what Interest the Democrat editor can have ia what we clip or pub lish, puzzles us. He can rest assured that we will never publish any ot hia Items we would certainly be compelled to alter the "phraseology," or better, re write them. For instance, appropriat ing Is probably the word the brilliant ( T) editor of the Democrat wished to nse Instead of "appropriation" editorial. We commend the caref ui perusal of this old saw to the Democrat man : "People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones." John M. Baown.of Topeka, a colored man of education and Influence among nia people, naa announced nimseir as a candidate for atate auditor, subject to the decision of the Republican atate con vention this fall.

Peck, an able lawyer, who ia well known all oyer the country, has been elected general solicitor for the greatest railroad system in the world the Atchison, Topeka & 8anta Fe. Mr. Peck held thia office about four year prior to 1884, but resigned on account of a slight conflict between his views and that of the then head of the company. Time haa proved that hia opinions made In that year were eminently correct and his position has been fully vindicated by his re-election to the office yesterday. The gentleman haa the finest of legal reputation and his re-election to the office Is a fitting recognition of his ability. i uk illustrious musician Luzt la in deed an abbe; but why did he enter holy orders T Because, Galignanl explains. ne unco paid court to two married wo men aud promised each that he would marry her when she became a widow.

The latest game of cards brought to notice as a substitute for progressive e ochre, drives whist and similar party prize games which nave been In popular f ayor or straggling to get into popular fa vor for the past few years,! domino whist This la played by any number of play era at a table and as many tables as may be convenient, and this fact is said to be greatly In its favor, as the odd ones need not be wall flowers ana tne non ana hostess are not compelled to play "Just to .fill op the tablet " in uomino whist the players are arranged at tables with about- an equal number of player at each table. The dealer distributes one card to each player, be ginning on the left, until all are ex hausted, except In the chase where three persona are playing at one table, when the odd card la turned face up In the cen ter of the table. When the number of playera is other than three, the one first on tne leit oi ine aeaier puis nova either a live or an ace of aoy suit, and this card, or the odd card where three play, ia the Initial card. Should the first player hare no five or nine he puts a chip in the center of the table and the play passes to the next. When an Initial card haa been played, the next card played must be the card of the same ault one spot higher or one spot lower, of which goes on one side of the initial card, the other on the opposite aide. When there three piles have been begun but not be. fore a new initial card of a different suit can be played. The card played on the next lower than the Initial run down In rack to the ace of that suit; those on the higher one run up to the king. Each person plays in turn or forfeits a chip to the center of the table, and the player whose cards are first exauated take from each player a chip for every card held at the close of the play, and also take those chipa forfeited in the center of the table. " The game is susceptible of con siderable skill, as one can au manage that no one else can play, tbia being a great advantage, aa it not only leaves many cards In the hands of others, but the forfeit oua ch ip each when unable to play.

Aimoe, the vivacious, tells of an .ex perience she had in Lonworth, Texas, with a real cowboy. This fellow opened the entertainment by laughing very coarsely whenever the actress spoke. She managed to get through the soene, and appealed to the manager of the theater for protection. The little man said that as the cowboy seemed to be surrounding by admiring friends he thought it would not be wise to attempt his removal. Besides, the Texan theat rical code forbade interference with the audjence after the admission money had been paid. Aime is not easily abashed. and she decided on her course.

Cattle Raising on the Plains. During the winter of 1871 and 1872 I engaged in the handling of Texas cattle in tne semi-arid belt of Kansas. I had provided no food for my stock. I knew that cattle could and did winter on the plains far north and west of where I was; but I did not know that there waa a difference in the nutritious qualities of mo uiuereni prairie grasses. 1 did not understand the peculiarities of the climate of the serai-arid belt nor the enects of rain fallinsr on dead erass.

When wc gathered into our wretched hovelx o' nights, and the pipes were glowing, our talk was of cattle, cattle, cattle. The sales of steers off the range at six eents per pound, live weight made the pre vious spring, were strongly dwelt npon.

Miss Chamberlain is now 23 years old, and is the daughter of Mr. William Chamberlain, of Cleveland, in, and ine granddaughter of Mr. Aelah Chamber lain, who was one of the wealthiest re sidents of that city. Hor mother was a Miss Wilson, also of Cleveland. Mrs. Chamberlain owns many lots in the city of Cleveland which were for many years poor property, but which four years ago rose suddenly in value anu maue ner a rich woman. But Miss Chamberlain's position as an heiress is due to her grandfather, "old Zclah Chamberlain." as be is known, ror many years ne held in his possession Minnesota state bonds to a large amount on whose in terest the state had defaulted. One day about ton years ago the Minnesota legis lature resolved to pay this back interest to a certain amount, inis was tele graphed to Mr. Chamberlain by a friend, and the latter immediately hired a special engine and steamed to 5t Paul, arriving there before any other bondholders, and receiving the full amount due him. It was after this little episode and in the summer of 1881 that the Chamber lains decided to spend a summer in Newport whither they repaired with their daughter, and there she made her debut She attracted considerable at tention from her slight but perfectly- formed figure, her delicate, pearly com plexion, her rich brown hair and eyes, small and perfect mouth, and her nat uralness of manner and conversation. Going from Newport to London, she made a success at once upon her en trance there the following season, and it was not long before it was reported that the prince of Wales was devoted to her. Many exaggerated stories of her friendship with the prince have since been publicly told, but no charge of any departure from perfect propriety of con duct has ever been made against her, despite the gauntlet of envious eyes and tongues she nas constantly been obliged to run. The story told of her that she first called the prince "Jumbo." while amusing is hardly true, as he had long been known as "Jummy" among a certain set of his associates, a nickname which the duke of Portland also holds. Getting Down to Weight. College students enter into their ath letic contests with an enthusiasm that is refreshing, and "Featherweight" in tbe Boston Globe, tolls an interesting 6tory about the preparation of the technology students. At their games the juniors won the tii-of-war, and . i i i . i , i . i . mereoy nsngs a taic. uen m iour men who were to represent tbe class of '87 began to pull together it was found that they were weighed twenty-four pounds over the limit six hundred pounds. This, too, was when they all supposed to be in the pink of condi tion; but they must take off those twenty-four pounds of extra weight and and every expedient known by the ath lete to reduce weight was resorted to. In fact they went through a course of training that would put to the blush a prize-fighter preparing for a battle in the ring. Finally, on the night before the eventful day, they were again weighed, and, to their consternation, they were still too heavy by one and a half pounds. They were not going to give it up then, so they decided to re frain from any more food until they had been accepted by the officials on the following day. The time for the official weighing found each one fearfully hungry, nut when they stepped on the scales and found that they weighed but 599 75-100 pounds and were eligible to pull, they thought no more of eating, out went to work on the cleats just a quarter of a pound under weight When they had won their first heat they sud denly disappeared, but showed up in time for the last pull. The "sophs" were to be their opponents, and they demanded that the juniors be weighed over again, but the referee said no. The 87 men had been weighed and ac cepted once, and as they had pulled one heat they were eligible to null again. Now, the juniors had precisely this view of the matter, and as they were decided ly hungry after winning once, they slipped out and broke their fasting. The sophomores discovered the clever trick of their elders, but the only satis faction they could get out of it was that perhaps they could be as smart another year. Postage Sixty Years Ago. "Walton's Register" for the year 1828 shows that there were 163 postrof&cea in Vermont at that time, nnd that about 920,000 was annually paid on the pos tage of letters, papers, and pamphlets by the citizens of Vermont The com pensation of the postmasters was on the basis of SO per cent on the first $100 of receipts and 25 per cent on the next $100. Brattleborough was then tho largest office in the State. The salary of Asa Green, the postmaster, was $630.89. The rates of postage were: For a aingle letter of one piece of paper for any dis tance not exceeding 30 miles, 6 cents; over 30 and not exceeding 80 miles. 10 cents; over 80 miles and not exceeding 150 miles, 12y cents; over 150 and not exceeding 400 miles, 18 cents; over 400 miles, 25 cent. Letters composed of two pieces of paper were charged triolA rates, and more than three pieces quad ruple postage. The highest salary paid any of the 4.000 postmasters in the United States was then $2,000. and there were only 10 who were paid that sum, while 27 received $1,000 and up ward.
