Possibly the most remarkable crea ture ever attached to a regiment was Peter, the ever famous goose of the Coldstream guards. This curious pet was presented to the Coldstreamers when they were In Canada by the late Hon. Adolphus Graves, and soon it acquired a fame which eclipsed that of all rivals in the way of pets in the army. When the guard was mounted of a morning Peter always marched off with them. It is recorded that one night the goose saved a sentry’s life by fiying in the face of a rebel who was just going to fire at the soldier. Peter’s timely aid disconcerted the rebel, who fired at random. The sen try immediately responded by shoot ing the rebel dead. When the guards came home and were quartered in Lonipn one of the sights when the regiment marched out was to see Peter strutting at the head of the battalion till they passed the barrack gate, when the goose re turned. Unhappily Peter's fate was unheroic. His end was ill in accord with his martial career, for he was run over and killed by a cab, and that not even a taxicab. It was a poor kind of an end for a bird with such a record.—London Telegraph.

A commercial traveler told of a man who was riding on a train and pre tended to become ill after eating a sandwich. The mi n opened his grip and took out abut water bag. “He got a sympathetic porter,” the commer cial man continues, “to fill the water bag with boiling water, and then he opened up his lunch basket, took out a piece of fried steak and warmed if up on the water bag. You talk about your light housekeeping! Then after he had warmed the steak he cut it all up with a pair of scissors and fed it to himself with a pair of sugar tongs, because he would not take a chance with a fork going around a curve. But his finish was a limit. After he had eaten the steak he unscrewed the stop per of the water bag and poured him self out a cup of hot coffee. He had the grounds in the bag all the time.” Checks (or the Communion Tattle. The author of “The Sabbath in Puri tan New England” mentions a custom which prevailed in several New Eng land churches that made it the duty of the deacons to walk up and down the aisles of the church at the close of each service and deliver to every per son vho in their judgment was fitted to commune a metal check, which en titled him at the next celebration of the Lord’s supper to join in the sacred ordinance. on the communion Sab bath it was the deacons’ duty to see that every one who presented himself at the Lord’s table had this check and to collect it from the communicant be fore passing to him the bread and wine. In a Quandary. The young lady sighed deeply and was almost affected to tears. “Harold,” she said, “declares that if I don’t marry him he will end ETs life. And I am afraid he will.” She stifled a sob, then continued: “4sd Randolph declares if ? don’t marry him he will go into poli tics and become great and famous, and then be says I shall see what I have missed. And I am afraid he will keep his word, too.” Overcome by emotion, she buried her face in her hands, not knowing whether to save a life or to spare the country another politician. The Old Ho* Room. Alvin Adams when the express busi ness was in its infancy had an office and two horses in New York city. One of these horses was a fine, fast animal, and the other an old, broken down nag. Packages that were to be delivered immediately he sent out be hind the fast horse. Of goods that didn’t have to be rushed he would say, "Leave them for the old hoss.” In every express office to this day there is an "old hoss” room, where un delivered and unclaimed packages are kept.—Argonaut.

BlLlilfllG ft RECORD Present Grind of Lawmakers at Washington Exceeds That of Previous Years. PENSION MEASURES ARE MANY Greater Leniency Now Because of Decreasing Numbers of the Civil War Veterans. Washington correspondence : In bills introduced and passed this Congress has broken all existing rec ords. Notwithstanding the fact that Congress has only recently begun to take a real interest in the legislation demanded by President Taft, it has cost something to mark time, and the result is that more legislation has gone through both houses than ever before in one session. Added to tbe fact that both houses have been labor ing under peculiar conditions arising out of a lack of stable leadership, is the liberalization of the House rules, particularly the addition of calendar Wednesday, which has served to facili tate legislative action. The growth of the legislative busi ness of Congress since thb Spanish war has been enormous. Incidentally, the growth of the government it-elf in the number of its employes has like wise increased in nearly all de partments. Up to the 56th Congress, when the Republicans regained control of the House, no Congress had been called upon to pass upon more than 9,000 bills. Within recent years, not less than 30,000 bills have been intro duced in each Congress. The posses sion of outlying territory, the progress of railroad building, which necessi tates the passage of a bill for each bridge built over a navigable stream, the increase in public works of all kinds, and the general agitation for a conservation of tbe national re sources and for a moral uplift all around, has had its effect on the hill basket of Congress. What Congress Has Done. The record of Congress up to June 7 Is as follows; Bills introduced in the Senate, 3,592; in the House, 26,651. Of this number about 10,000 bills have been reported upon to the house, Hther favorably or unfavorably, and about 5,500 have been passed through that body, and over 6,000 have been passed through either the House or .■Senate. In addition, there have been 726 house resolutions. 224 joint reso lutions and 46 concurrent resolutions introduced in the House. Among the measures whjch have passed the House are 197 public bills, 79 private bills, 33 public resolutions and 2 private resolutions. There have been 34 om nibus bills passed, each carrying from 10 to 450 separate measures. Probably 5,000 of the bills which have passed this Congress relate to pensions, corrections of military rec ords, and war claims. These come up before Congress in the form of pri vate pension bills, private laws and private resolutions. More pension bills have been pissed at this Con fess than at any recent session, and this fact is ascribed to a growing leniency by the pension committee be cause the original pensioners are dying off so fast that the annual pen sion charge is showing signs of dimin ishing. The late Woodbury Kane’s famous polo and tandem pony, Punch, is dead at the age of 45 years. Harry Birkenruth, an American jockey, was recently badly injured on the track at Belgium. The Derby stakes of $32,500 for 3- 3’ear-olds at Epsom Downs, Eng., dis tance about one and a half miles, was won by Lemberg, the favorite. May Sutton defeated Hazel Hotch kiss at Los Angeles in a match game of tennis in deuce sets. The conclud ing *et went to Miss Sutton, 6 —3. Amateur reinsmen in Baltimore, Wil mington and Philadelphia have arrang ed a series of inter-city trotting meet ings, the first of which will be held in Wilmington on June 13. Frank Gotch, of Humboldt, lowa, successfully defended his title as wrestling champion of the world by easily defeating Stanislaus Zbyszko the Polish champion, in straight falls at the Coliseum in Chicago. As the date for the great English Derby draws near, it is brought to the British mind more acutely just how close the late King Edward was to his people. Edward always made it a point to attend the Epsom opening day, ex cept when grave matters compelled his absence A magnificent new race course is be ing prepared at Juarez, Mex., for the card of fall events. The management have announced $300,000 in stakes which makes it evident that there will be an attempt to allure American turf men to Mexico this fall. Gustav Ljungstrom, the Swedish runner, won a fifteen-mile running race at the fair grounds at Wheeling, W. Va., in 1:23:41, which is 2 minute? 21 seconds behind his own record. Jo hansen (Sweden) was second by one eighth of a mile and St. Yves (France) third. Practically every marksman of South Shore, S. D., and vicinity is a charter member of a gun club which has been organized there. A little later in th season an effort may be made to hold a shooting tournament, to be partici pated In by all the gun clubs in that part of the State. Matt McGrath, of the Irish-Ameri can Athletic Club of New York, in throwing the 56-pound weight for height, reached 16 feet 1 inch, which exceeds the world’s record by one eighth of an inch. The mark, how ever, will stand only as an exhibition record, as it was not made in compe tition. Belmont Park’s spring meeting closed recently with the largest at tendance of the season and exhilarat ing sport. Few if any of the jumping events of recent years were so 'well contested or so generally spectacular as at the closing races. The ocean race for motor boats from Philadelphia to Havana, in which five contestant? started, ended :n a victory for the Berr.eyo. owned by S- W. Gran berrv, Brooklyn Yacht Club. With her time allowance, of three hours and forty-five minutes over M E .Brig ham's Caliph, she beat the latter boat by two hours and forty-four minutes and eighteen'seconds. The Week in Congress The public land withdrawal bill was passed bv the Senate Wednesday after a debate upon that measure which cov ered the entire session. Just before adjournment tbe statehood bill was laid before the Senate as the unfinish ed business. The land bill was so amended as to provide for the issuance of 330.000,000 worth of certificates of indebtedness with which to complete irrigation projects already in course of construction. The bill providing for a new civil government for Porto Rico was passed by the House. This meas ure is planned to take the place of the Foraker act, under which the island is new governed, and provides for a more representative government than is ad ministered under the present law. After two and a naif hours of con sideration the Senate Thursday passed the bill granting statehood to Arizona and New Mexico. Upon the final pass age of the bill a roll call developed a unanimous vote of sixty-five Senators in favor of the measure. The confer ence report on the railroad bill was taken up, but action was postponed. A number of minor bills, including many public building measures, were passed. The consideraticn of the de ficiency bill occupied the House. Gen eral debate was concluded and it was partly read for amendments. Mr. Humphrey, of Washington, spoke upon combinations by foreign steamship lines for the purpose of keeping up rates upon goods shipped from ports of the United States. He said the Standard Oil Company, the steel cor poration and the harvester combine re ceived preferential rotes which de stroyed competition with them. By a vote of 50 to 11 the Senate Friday agreed to the conference re port on the railroad bill. Before ad journing. the motion to concur in the House amendments to the postal sav ings bank bill was made the unfin ished business. The House concluded its session by adopting anew rule by which a majority of its membership may at any time recall from a com mittee any bill or resolution referred to it and place the measure upon the calendar for consideration. Advocates of this new rule claim that it will ef fectually prevent the pigeon-holing of any proposed legislation which has the approval of a majority of the House. The adoption of the new rule was by a unanimous vote. The de ficiency appropriation bill was under consideration during most of the ses sion, but was not disposed of. The Senate Saturday discussed a mo tion by Senator Bristow to discharge the committee on the judiciary from the further consideration ci the reso lution providing for the election of United States Senators by direct vote and a motion by Senator Carter to concur in the House amendments to the postal savings bank bill. Neither motion was acted on. The resolution authorizing an investigation of the charges made against Senator Lorimer of Illinois in connection with tiOn was reported favorably from the committee on privileges and elections and was referred to the committee on contingent expenses. The House final ly disposed cf the railroad bill and the bill granting statehood to- Arizona and New Mexico, only the approval of the President being required to make them laws. Both of these administration measures received a practically unani mous vote. The general deficiency bill, appropriating nearly $6,000,000, was also passed The Senate on Monday adopted the resolution directing the committee on privileges and elections to investigate the charges of bribery in connection with the election of Senator Lori.mer. Senator Carter’s motion to concur in the House amendments to the postal savings bank bill was considered, but no; disposed of. Senator Borah deliv ered an extended speech on the West’s attitude toward conservation. A com mission to consider means for the pro motion of international peace was pro vided for by a resolution passed by the House. Among many other measures passed were bills providing for the re tirement of Justice Moody of the Uni ted States Supreme Court on full pay; requiring all ocean-going vessels leav ing ports of the United States and car rying more than fifty passengers to b? equipped for wireless telegraphy; and providing for a commission to attend the centennial anniversary of the Re public of Mexico. At a night session th-* public buildings bill and numerous minor measures were passed. TFLEGRAPKIC BREVITIES Reuben S. Crohn, former public ad ministrator at Kansas City, shot him self when confronted with exposur,- of his alleged tnefts of $50,000 from the estate of Adolph Hunttinann, of which he was administrator. He died. An increase in wages ranging on a graduated scale of from 1 to 3 cents per hour was granted to the employes of the Cincinnati Traction Company, operating the street car lines in that city.

Colonel Roosevelt Present at Mar riage of His Son. Weather typical of the month of brides and roses attended the wedding of Miss Eleanor Butler Alexander and Theodore Roosevelt, Jr., whose nup tials at the Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church in New York furnish one of the most notable socety events of the season. The capacity of the spacious edifice where the wedding took place was tax ed to accommodate the guests. Then attendance of the groom's distinguish ed father so stimulated popular inter est in the function that there were record throngs in the vicinity of the church edifice long before the hour set for the ceremony. The ceremony was performed by Rev. Dr. Henry M. Sanders, a great uncle of the bride, assisted by Rev. Gordon Russell of Cranford, N. J. A musical program was given while the guests were assembling. The bride was given away in marriage by her mother, Mrs. Henry Addison Alexan der. The ceremony was followed by a re ception at the home of Mr. and Mrs. C. B. Alexander, the bride’s uncle and aunt. The young couple go on their honeymoon to California, and will spend some time there. The bridal gifts were many and valuable. The engagement of Theodore Roose velt, Jr., and Miss Alexander was an nounced last February. The groom is 22 years of age and his bride 21. HIT MEDICAL SCHOOLS. Experts of American Association Criticise Those of Middle West. Fast on the heels of Abraham Fiex ner’s sensational charges against al most all the medical colleges of Chi cago comes the report of the reference committee of the American Medical Association on medical education in the United States, in which the com mittee virtually indorses all that was said by the outspoken investigator from the Carnegie Foundation. This report, which appears in the journal of the association, brings a severe indictment against all except four of the medical schools of Chicago, and also against numerous schools in other parts of the United States. Illi nois, Kansas, lowa, Michigan, Wiscon sin, Minnesota, Missouri and Nebraska figure in the report favorably or un favorably, as the colleges investigated are classified as “acceptable” or other wise. MINE DEATHS ARE ON DECREASE Including Cherry Disaster Only 2,- 412 Persons Lost Lives in 1909. Notwithstanding the Cherry mine disaster and the fact that the amount of coal mined in the United States in 1909 was 10 yer cent greater than in the previous years, coal mine fatalities in the United States were fewer in 1909 than in the year 1908. The figures compiled by Edward W. Parker, statistician of the division of •mineral resources of the United States geological survey, show the total num ber of deaths from coal mine accidents in 1909, including the Cherry mine dis aster, to have been 2,412, as compared with 2,450 in the preceding year. Statistics upon which the report cf the bureau was based came from state ments furnished by State mine inspect ors. In the future all such statistics, it is expected, will be compiled by the new bureau of mines. CONSERVATION BILL PASSED. Land Withdrawal Act Carries $30,- 000,000 Provision for Irrigation. With $30,000,000 provided for the completion of irrigation projects and various other amendments, the House bill authorizing the withdrawal of pub lic lands by the President passed the Senate the other day without roll call. It is one of the measures advocated in President Taft's legislative program. Among the more important provisions rejected was an amendment by Sena tor Beveridge specifically withdrawing from entry the coal lands of Alaska, and another by Senator Gore bringing the friar lands of the Philippines with in the operation of the general land laws of those islands. $300,000 LOST IN OIL BLAST. Big Damage by Flames in Hansell- Elcock Cos. Iron Works. Fire starting from an explosion in the architectural iron works of the Hansell-Elcock company, 23d place and Butler street, Chicago, shortly after 12 o’clock in the morning, resulted in an estimated loss of $.730,000 to the iron concern and damage of $25,000 to the plant of the C. Selig Cooperage Com pany, directly in the rear. An investi gation will be made by the police of a rumor that the explosion was caused by sympathizers of disgruntled iron workers who had figured in recent la bor troubles at the Hansell-Elcock plant.

He Knew the Requirement*. Uncle Silas, in his youth, had been “fond of the society of the opposite sex,” to use his own words, and the timidity of his 23-year-old nephew was a great trial to him. "What’s the matter of you, Rod, that you stick at home Sunday even ings?” he demanded plainly, after many unavailing hints. “Why don’t you go calling on some of your young lady friends, boy?” “Oh, I don't care about it,” said Rodney, turning a lively crimson. “They wouldn’t find me interesting.” “Wouldn’t?” puffed Uncle Silas. “Well, I should like to be told why they wouldn’t. You’ve got a good black suit and anew straw hat, and you’ve got a pair of legs that could take you to the candy shop on Sat’day night, and enough pockets to put a box or two in. I should like to know what more you need to make ’em find you interesting?” One Woman Ham Her Right*. Mrs. Kelly and Mrs. Rafferty were exchanging ideas across the shabby fence which separated their respective domains. The conversation turned on the subject of woman suffrage.

Button*. Buttons have engaged the attention of legislators even more frequently han hats. Five acts have been pass ed to protect the button industry of England, and some of these are still unrepealed. An act of George I. in fiicts a penalty of 40 shillings on any person using or selling “buttons made ot cloth, serge, drugget, frieze or cam let.” This law, says the London Daily Mail, wa3 a source of intense annoy ance to foreign visitors, and the au thor of "Le Parisien a Londres,” a juide written in 1789, is cp.reful to explain its provisions at considerable Jength. He adds, however, that for eigners “who are able to prove that their clothes were made in their own country escape the penalty when first summoned on the understanding that they change their buttons within twenty-four hours.” A DETERMINED WOMAN Finally Found u Food That Cared Her. "When I first read of the remark able effects of Grape-Nuts food, I de termined to secure some,” says a woman of Salisbury, Mo. “At that time there was none kept in this town, but my husband ordered some from | a Chicago traveler.

As soon a3 I began to use the new food the cramps disap peared and have never returned. ‘My old attacks of sick stomach were a little slower to yield, but by continuing tbe food, that trouble ha3 disappeared entirely. I am to-day per fectly well, can eat anything and ev erything I wish, without paying the penalty that I used to. We would not keep house without Grape-Nuts. "My husband was so delighted with the benefits I received that he has been recommending Grape-Nuts to bis ! customers and has built up a very ! large trade on the food. He sells j them by the case to many of the lead- ! ing physicians of the county, who rec ommend Grape-Nuts very generally. There is some satisfaction in using a really scientifically prepared food.” Read the little book. “The Road to j Wellville,” in pkgs. There’s a Rea- i son." Ever read the above letter?

'* Two friends, one a prosperous look- , ing business man and the other at 1 least well dressed, chanced to meet ' not long ago, and the second gentle- j man remembered that it was his turn j to “buy the dinner,” so they were soon repairing to a fashionable res- | taurant. Their orders were generous, I and they lingered long over the good I things, not forgetting cigars at the end. When they felt that tbey really had to leave or else pay rent, the host showed a bit of fidgetiness and re- i quested that the other go outside and wait for him; that there was an “un- ; pleasant little detail” he wished to discuss with the proprietor and could not think of embarrassing his friend , by having him overhear it. The friend did as requested, stepping out side and waiting at the nearest cor ner. He had been waiting only about five minutes when of a sudden the door of the restaurant flew open, and his erstwhile host shot through it as from a catapult, followed by some most uncomplimentary terms. “What's wrong?” was the first in quiry of the waiting friend. “Oh, nothing much,” was the an swer. “except that the ’unpleasant lit tle detail’ 1 had to discuss with the proprietor was that I had no money to pay for the dinners.”—Pittsburg Gazette-Times. The --Lake of Bay*” Country. A handsome brochure, artistically Il lustrated, issued by the Grand Trunk Railway System, telling of the beauties of the Lake of Bays district, in the "Highlands of Ontario.” The concise description embodies the story of a charming resort.

Improving Americans. "Nothing is fixed but the certainty of change,” said Goethe, and we know that the future American will repre sent a change. He may be taller or shorter or thinner or fatter than the American of to-day, but there is noth ing in the existing state of society— and we use society in its broad sense —to indicate that he will not be bet ter in many ways. Confidence in this is based largely on the evident de termination of the American of to day to leave our institutions and our ideals better than he found them. Every American, native or foreign born, wants his children to have a better education than it was possi ble for him to secure. He wants to have his children live in a community of higher standards and ideals than he has; he wants betterment in local, state and national conditions, and the result of the want will be an improve ment and a demand by his children for still greater improvement.—St. Paul Pioneer Press.

SAVED HER LIFE. Newton, lowa, Woman Restored to Health. Mrs. Ida Finch, 217 E. Main St., Newton, la., says: “I was suddenly taken with pain in tmy back, so severe the doctor had to in ject morphine. My kidneys were in a terrible state, the secretions contain ing heavy sediment, scalding and passing irregularly. My feet and ankles swelled and puffy spots ap peared beneath my eyes. 1 had 25 smothering spells in one day and thought 1 would die.
