Otto Ichmdur Thus' Attired Ran the Gauntlet of the OMclaU. An immigrant arrived at New York recently in a dress Buit Otto Schmel. rer, the descendant of an ancient Polish house, was among' the steerage passengers on the good ship La Tour aine. As the boat neared the port Otto was alarmed by the stories circu la ted in the steerage that the deten tion of the authorities amounted Ui almost imprisonment. Among hi? possessions was a dress suit tie had worn in the days when, as an aristo crat, he sometimes ended evening's of celebration minus his nipht jfown but adorned in evening attire. When Otto learned that the gentlemen aboard were allowe -to go ashore without any trouble, ex cept the examination of their bagae. he attired himself in his precious dress suit He was better off than most oi his fellows, for he had a clean shirt and when he appeared on deck he was the pride and envy of the steerage. It was 10 o'clock in the mornintr. but the Polish gentleman, who could not af ford a js.g to account for the dress Buit, in his excitement forgot his good breeding and the rule that evening dress is not to bs worn until after 0. except in the early morning when ac companied by the remains of a lark. Ills remarkable appearance cal.ed the immediate attention of ths authorities to him. When he explained the situa tion, exhibing S10 in goJd and strutted 'in the dress suit, he was allowed tc no on bis way rejoicing, to join the ranks of those whose dress suits are the excuse for their poverty. ANOTHER ON CH AUNCEY. The 8 mm II Boy Blurts the Truth to the Greet Story-Teller. Here's one on Chauncey Depew. The genial doctor had dropped in to ee a gentleman on some business at his private residence. An inquisitive mall boy was playing in the exten sion room back of the parlor. He seemed to take a great interest in the visitor, and every now and then sus pended his sport to roconnoiter him. When Mr. Depew left the lad ran to the front window, and, looking out, asked. "Who is that man, papa?"' "He's the gentleman your mother and I were talking about at the break fast table this mo. ning. Mr. Depew, the greatest story-teller I ever heard " A few days after the visitor camo sgain. The lad was fctandiua on th front stoop, and as Mr. Depw rang the bell be said to him: "I know you."' Mr. Depew is fond of childivn, and, patting the little fellow on the head, observed encouragingly: "Come, now, if yon think you know who I am, who am I?" "You're the gentleman who tells the biggest whoppers paoa ever heard." Tent Life In Mongolia. In the plains on the western bor ders of the Chinese Empir, in the very heart of Asia there live roaming tribes who seldom visit towna, except it may be iu the way of trade. They dwell in tents which they pitch where ver they may happen f the mo ment to be wandering c working. The tent used by some of Ike roving Mongolian folk is made of felt, and is unusually low, small, aad pointed towards the top. The wooden door frame is no higher than half a window frame in our houses, but the tent, although not equal to the wants of a largo family, is snug and comfortable enough in summer, but cold, cold in winter.

Let poots sing .enchanting lays, Of lillies and the rose, Of flowers rare, of flowers fair, As summer comes and goes. But ever more my song shall be, As ages move along, Of pictures like the one you see. The wariug, glorious corn. Across the field is heard the call. Of quails uuto their mate, Acrona and nuts are heard to fall, Dear farmer don't be late, Your groaning wagon homeward born, Briug man's best friend, the golden corn? See the Lilliputians with their aik-an-aaw Amidst the glories of the field, From Texas lands to Ark-an-saw, Gathering in the golden yield. The silks and tassels how fweet they smell, The winds, like waves upon the sen, Do softly lie and gently swell. The broad blade's beauteous leaves. The Great Spirit many long years !gone, Brought to the Indians the wniving orn, Tbey brought this corn to you and mo With them we bless their Deity, And everywhere that man is born. They sing the praise of the Indian's corn. J. M. GOLLEDGE, Headquarters For Galvanized Iron Flues itocnng ana u-uttering. Manufacturer of GALVANIZED IRON CORNICE. JOB WORK A SPECIALTY.
