Perrls, Calif. 6-80 ON THE POLITICAL STUMP Fun Is Just as Popular Now as Ever THE COONSKIN CAMPAIGNS Are Well Remembered by tbe Old-time Orators Billy Mafon Tells ot Experiences He Had When He Was New to the Cam paign Platform Stump orators of todny nro as popular ns they over worn. Tho wit of tho speaker of today may bo n shade sharper and finer than In tho robustuotis days of old, but tho happy allusion nnd tho well polntod nnecdoto still ootoh tho crowd. Tho boy and the blind puppy story, the woodchuek nnd circuit rider fnblo, mako as big lilts now as thoy did before tho hero of Tippe canoo had n grandson. Perhaps Vv'illlam E. Mason is the most successful Illinois campaign speaker of to day. Ho is naturally a story tellor, mag netic and of as great n drawing power as a circus. His anecdotes are told with tho ease and naturalness of an actor reciting his lines, and to the campaign crowds ho is a joy nnd n delight. Mr. Mason has In n marked degree the unfailing attribute of a successful public talker. He is at etiso with himself and his audlcnco. "I well recall my first practical lesson In publio speaking," said Mr. Mason to n Timos-Horuld man. "It was given mo 22 yonrs ago. I was making speeches with Judge Morso, v candidate for the bench. Ho heard mv talk onco or twice, nnd then gnvo mo some advice. " 'Mason,' ho Raid, 'you're young yet, 1 nnd your oratorinl futuro is all boforo you. Don't try to omulotn Demosthenes or Cicero, or auy of thoso boys.as I son you'ro pointing out to do. You'll surely fall down. Talk to your crowds as if you had one man alone nnd had him by tho lapel of his coat. Don't talk over their heads. Got down among 'tmi and jolly 'om up. Toll 'em stories, Dill. That's the winning play. Toll 'em stories. Mako your point, and then mako 'cm laugh.' "It seemed to mo good advloo. I had made hut a fow speeches at that time, aud I reckon I was too ornate or something. I hud been chilled twico—nef.rly frost bltton ; —and so I decided to tnko a leaf from Judge Morse's book. Our nozt appoint ment was at a llttlo country town near Dcs Moines. I made tho opening speech in the town hall while the judge was out- ' side doing the personal acquaintance, the 'Howdy, Dill; howdy, John; how's your wlfo and children!-' handshaking net. Ho didn't hoar my speech, nnd he had reason to regret it. I had decided to try that Irish man and tho bull story—you know It—how Pat thought hod shako a rod handkerchief nt tho bull and then jump over tho fence nnd enjoy tho bull's rage. It was a good joko, und the man lay down on tho grass and rolled In the excess of his delight. He lamed himself laughing, and after ho had shaken tho handkerchief and stirred up tho animal ho was so tired he couldn't got out of tho way, and tho bull tossed tho man into a pond. The Irishman waded ont on tho other side, remarking: " 'It was a line joke, bnt it's a good thing I did mo laugh in first.' "I started iv my speech by compliment ing tho gathering ou their intelligence, as is oustomnry, and then led up to my story liko this: 'I see the Democrats aro getting pretty gay ovor their prospects and are do ing a good deal of boasting and a whole lot of laughing over tho way thoy nro go ing to liok us election day. They remind mv of tho Irishman and the bull.' And then I gavo it to them. Remember, tho story was 25 years youngor thon. They not only stood it, but acted as if they liked lt. I told a fow more in tho course of my speech and then gave way to Judge Morse, who had finished his handshaking outside and had como In toward the close of my talk. Ho said ho was glad of tho oppor tunity to talk to such an intelligent gath ering. 'I have observed,' ho went on, 'that the Democrats nro getting very guy and chipper and aro doing a great deal of laughing over the licking they are going to givo us at tho polls. My friends and neighbors,' he said, 'they remind me of a story—a little story about an Irishman and n hull.' Then he started In with the yarn, and the orowd began to laugh. The judgo was pleased, and as the laughter increased with every sentence he took advantage of one of the stops for tho applause nnd yoll- i Ing to subside to turn to mo aud say in un i aside: 'I told yon there was nothing like a story, Dill. It always gets 'cm.' 'Hut, judge,' I said in a whisper, 'I told'— 'Hush,'ho said, waving mo book to my seat, 'don't interrupt mol' Sohowenton, i and before ho finished half the crowd wore exhausted with the fun thoy had. And through tho rost of his speech there wero outbursts of laughter at the recollection of the bull story, nnd when ho finished he got such an outbreak of applause ns no man before or since has received from a house of the same size. "When we were going back to Dcs Moines that night, he said: 'You see my plan is a good one, Dill. A story Is tho thing to get the people with you. But,' ho ndded, 'I was surprised with the sensa tion that ono created. I never knew lt to be recelvod that way before.' " 'Neither did I,'l replied. 'I told it to them not ten minutes boforo you did, and lt fell .dead by comparison.' " 'Is that true, Masonf' " 'It's as true as Republicanism,' I said. "'I thought It was singular. Say, Bill,' he proceeded gloomily, 'if you won't givo it away to tho boys in Dcs Moines, I'll buy you the best suit of olothes in tho olty.' " The bull stories are not the only ones with which Mr. 'Mason points morals and ! 'adorns his addresses. Far from it. Ho ] has an endless list, and when ho shakes . his mane and walks out on the platform ! na man may toll when the laughing will cease. One story ho frequently offers as an illustration of an argument Is the yarn told by Mark Twain. Ono Sunday, when they were boys, Twain and his brother do fled tho patornal restraining order and wont swimming. Fifteen minutes after their return from the rivor the father sought a personal Interview with tho brother and urgently dusted his jacket with a ramrod, all in the interests of re form and the proper observance of the Sabbath. "I don't see why the old man whipped me," said the victim. "It's wrong to go swimming Sunday," replied Mark. "Well, you went too. Why didn't he hand you out one?" "Beoauso I mado up my mind to con fess, and I told him about it." "Ho should have licked you just the same," argued the boy with tho warm hide. "He might have done it," said the wise Mark, "but, you see, I didn't confess on myself I"—Chicago Times-Herald.

"A man I knew," said an old fir tor* man, "went fishing onco in a 17 foot skiff, made a good catch, got back along about tho middle of tho afternoon, ran his boat up on tbe end of v little sand spit flint mude out maybo 30 or 80 yards from tbe bench and wont ashore. Ho wan going to UMTS his llsh in tho boat overnight. "It was pretty near low water when ho came In, and the spit was dry from the end •II t lie way to tliu beaoh. A cat that was walking along the shore saw tho out on tho ond of tho spit and went out txj sou what It could find aboard. Another cat walking along tho shoro nnd seeing that tho first, cat didn't como back went out und joined it, and in half an hour ten cuts bad gone aboard tho boat and staid Micro to oat fish. "The tldo rose, tho sand spit was cov ered, and tho boat swung to an anchor that tho fisherman had thrown over when ho came ashore Tho cats had beon so busy that thoy hadn't noticed the rising of tho tldo. They didn't know nuythlng about lt until tho boat was uflont. Then ono of them looked over the side and saw that, they wero surroundod by water. Tho spit that thoy had walked out on was now un der water to the depth of a foot or two. This cat must have told the rest, becauso a minute later they wore all looking over tho side of tho boat, standing with their hind feot on tho bottom rangud along iv a row and looking toward tho shoro, tho most forlorn ton cnts you evor saw. Of course, you don't laugh at anything In distress, but if you ever did you couldn't) havo holpcd laughing at thoso ton cats in a row. "Finally ono of them mndo a plungo overboard. Cats hato water, but lt was moro dreadful to stay out thoro in tho boat, With a grout body of water ail around them, than to take a risk in getting ashore. This cat got ashore all right, and more fol lowed until eight had swum ashore. Tho other two wero afraid to try lt. Thoy staid on tho boat. Thoy might havo got off whon tho spit was dry again at tho next low wator, 3 or 4 o'clock in tho morn ing, but they diAn't. Thoy stnid on tho bout, and tho fisherman found them there when ho wont In tho morning. He held thorn up, one in onoh haud. '"Hah!' he said. 'Sco what I caught I' " 'Humph!' said I. 'You had oight or ton moro Inst night ' "But ho was v humano man. He didn't throw 'cm overboard. Ho just kept them in tho bout until he'd brought the boat ashore, und then tho two last cats jumped out and scooted." —New York Sun. THE PRINCE OF WALES. A Story That He Was Baptized as a Ro man Catholic. Tho Freeman's Journal of Sydney, New South Wales, has a correspondent who seems to know a great many things not generally known. He confides to us tho secret that tho Prince of Wales wns bap tized a Catholic, assorting that ho has tho testimony of an ominent bishop that his statement is absolutely correct. It seems that when tho time enmo for tho baptism of Albert Edwnrd two dignitaries of tho Churoh of England arranged to divide hon ors on the occasion, with tho result that one poured tho water whlla tho other read the form of baptism. This was the perfec tion of Protestant politenoss, but all tho same it was a blunder which mado tho j baptism invalid. ! Aftor the ceremony the queon of the Belgians, who had boon an observant wit ness, spoke to tho queon privately and pointed out that tho interesting infant had not beon made a Christian in tho propor way. Victoria was much troublod and asked, "What can I dor" "Oh," said her Belgian majesty, "lt Is easy enough," ndding: "I havo here In the pal ace a Belgian priest, my chaplain. Let mo call him In to baptlzo the child proper ly, nnd no ono will be any tho wiser. '' The young quoen of England, whoso mothor, by tho way, wns a ('at hollo, at once gavo her consent, and the Catholic baptism was performed with only two witnesses. Apart from his baptism under "circumstances over which ho had no control," tho Prinoe of Wales has always exhibited a most sym pathotio fooling toward the Catholio church. Ho has befriended moro than one Catholio sisterhood in England, was an ardent admirer of Father Damlen, and ho has on several ocoasions attended moss. Cardinal Manning had no warmer cham pion and supporter than the holr to tho British throne, and it will bo recollected that on a memorable occasion ho placed tho cardlnnl on a royal commission next himself and boforo the premier nnd tho Protestant bishop of London. There was a "big fuss" about lt at tho time, but the trouble blow over and has beon forgotten. j —Aye Maria. j . Wagner Made His Living.

SMITH'S HAUNTED BOOTS Originally the Property of the Tory Terror KICKED OFF AT A HANGING To Prove That His Mother Was a Liar Tine: ITtn Who Wor; Them Yean Afterward Were Killed by Lord* Story "No ono In tiio Schunuemunk moun tains will ever forget tho Story of Bralnnrd I ! ier3on'B haunted hoots," said Christy Lord of that hlstotlo part of Orange county. "Tho story datos bock a good way, but It's always new and fresh along the old Sohunnemunk. "Bralnard Plerson'a hoots, so t'.to story poos, were tho very hoots that Claudius Smith kicked off his feet just boforo ho was hanged at Goshen in the Revolution nry times. Claudius Smith was the bloody Tory cowboy who, with his following of cutthroats nnd robbers, terrorized tho Sehunnemunk and surrounding country for years. "After tho patriots had nt last captured the desperado und be was taken to tho gal lows at Goshen ho kicked his hoots off as tho rope Was placed about his nock and exclaimed: "'My mother en Id I would dio like a trooper's horse, with mjr shoes on. I will make her out a liar.' "Thoso woro Claudius Smith's last words. His hoots, through some mannor of succession, tit last fell Into tho posses sion of Bralnard Piorson years after tho cowboy was hanged. I've often heard my father say thnt when folks heard that BralUßrd had got Claudius .Smith's boots they went to him and said: " 'Woo to you, Bralnard Piorson, if you wear thoso hoots! Not for all tho treasure Claudius Smith buried in old Sohunne munk would wo Wear those boots! There's blood on 'em!' " 'And even if thero is,' Brainord said, 'I'll walk it off tomorrow, for I'm going to drivo some cattle down Jersey way. I couldn't get n pair o' boots liko those for the price o' tho best critter I'vo got.' "Bralnard Plerson laughed and next day started with his cattle down Jersey way, wearing the dead Tory's boots. Somowhoro down near the Ramnpo pass a man coming this way met, a drove of cat tle. They went on by and the man noticed that no drover was behind thorn. Ho went on. Ho had gone a quarter of a mile or so when ho almost stumbled over a man ly ing iv tho road. Ho noticed that the man had on a remarkably lino pair of boots, but ho started back in terror as lie saw a rattlosnako lying near his feet. Discover ing that tho serpent wns dead ho advanced and wus horriiiod to see that tho prostrate man's face was black and swollen and that ho was dead. It wns plain that the rattlosnako had bitten tho man, who had then killed tho snake beforo ho died. "The dead man was Bralnard Plerson. Tho discoverer of tho tragedy sought tli6 nearest help ASd the rattlesnake's victim was brought home to Sohunnemunk. Tho head of the snnko had beon crushod by a stono and ono of its fangs was gono. The snako had bitten clear through ono of the boots Bralnard wore nnd a tiny puncture on his anklo showed whero tho deadly ven om had entered to do its deadly work. " 'Claudius Smith's boots!'was tho llrst exclamation that folks mado whon Braln nrd Picrson was brought homo dead from a rattlcsnako's bite. 'There's blood on 'em nnd wo told him so!' "For a long time nothing was talked about all through tho Sohunnemunk coun try but Bralnard Piorson's haunted boots nnd tho awful fate that Bralnard mot with beoauso ho flow in tho face of warning and woro them. Somehow or other though Brainard's folks didn't seem to be able to see just how it was that he wouldn't have been struck by the rattlesnake if he hadn't had Claudius Smith's boots on, and so tho boots remained in the family. Thoro was no ono big enough yet, In tho family to wear boots and so they were put one side. And there they romaincd unused for ten years. Then the houso was robbed one night. Among the property stolen wore tho haunted boots. Two days after the robbery young Goorgo Piorson, Brainard's son, was hunting on Seven Spring moun tain, and, going over to one of tho springs to got a drink, ho found a dead man lying near it black In tho face and swollen. Noar by tho body lay a big bundle. Tho dead man had on tho stolon Claudius Smith's boots! i'oung Plerson pulled off tho boots. On the man's right ankle was a little pur plish rod puncture. " 'A rattlosnako has strnok hlra as sure as fate!' exclaimed young Piorson. "Tho bundle contained the things stolon from the Plerson family. George bached them homo und brought tho boots along. Then ho sproad the news about finding the robber on Sovon Springs mountain, dead frora a rattlesnnke's bite. "Several yours went by again before any one else woro tho haunted boots. Then a relation of tho Picrson folks, who lived down In tho Ringwood valley, visited thorn. Ho saw tho boots and took a great fancy to 'em. Ho wanted to buy 'om, al though ho know the fata of tho only two persons who had worn 'em in years. " 'Thoro ain't any rattlesnakes In our section,' snid he. 'I'll risk the haunt.' "The Plerson folks wouldn't sell him the boots, but they mado htm a present of 'em. Ho took 'em home with him. Some folks say that ho didn't tell his father-in law the story of tho boots when he mads him a present of 'em after he got homo, and some suy he did. At any rate, the father-in-law had a good deal of property which would go to this Piorson relation's wifo when her father died, and her father was in the best of health. Tho son-in-law made him a present of Bralnard Piorson's haunted boots. Tho father-in-law put 'om on one day and went for a walk. Not long afterward be came staggering home. "Ho was a dead man an hour later, with a black, swollen faco and body. On his right auklo was the mark of a rattlesnake bite, as thoro had beon on Bralnard Pior son's and on tho dead robbors. And there was not a rattlesnako in all that country I The father-in-law of tho Piorson relation was dead before the doctor could get there. Tho doctor was told tho story of the haunt ed boots. Seizing tho right boot, ho slash ed lt down to the ankle with his knifo. Something white fell from lt to the floor. The doctor picked It up. He examined it for a moment. " 'A rattlesnake's fang,' said he. 'And there's poison enough yet In Its channel to kill another man I' "It was the missing fang of the snake that had bitten Brainard Plerson. It had been pulled from its socket by the firm hold the leather of tho boot had taken of lt. Held fast thus, with its point on the lnsldo, contact with it had been of suffi cient force to puncture the ankles of tbe persons who had since worn tbe boot. The venom, though dry, was still potent, and its work as doadly as when lt lay In Its sack In the rattlesnake's jaw. That was what the doctor said."—Now York Sun.
