Phe Conductor and the Tenderfet-.
Now antd then a chronic grumbler
from the e(-atern states finds himself
starring a' a touri.ts out westand learns
that the purchasing power of growls is
not unlimited in that section.
"Where do we take dinner?" queru
lously asked such a character of the con
ductor on the North Pacific railroad,
traveling from Fargo to Bismarok.
"At Jamestown," courteously replied
the conductor.
"Get there at midnight, I suppose,"
grunted the passenger.
"At 12:22," answered the conductor.
"Can't you stop somewhere and let
me get a cracker?"
"Not very well, sir. Theire are no op
portunities between her and Jlmtown."
Finding himself treated in such a gen
tlemanly manner, the tourist turned
loose and cursed the road from St. Paul
to Glendive creek, and after finishing
his dinner he took in the Duluth branch
and wound up with the officers and
trainmen, consigning the wlwde busi
ness to bitterness and wrath eternal.
The conductor made every effort tp pao
ify him, but his exertions onlstimulate
ed the volume of abuse until the train
stopped at Bismarck.
"Can I see you a momentV' asked the
conductor, taking the tourist by the el
bow and leading bhim to tb~ qptadr"gl
back of the Sheridan house, "You don't
seem t .jdrtnd l~.. ,.

"What's the matter, Jim?" inquired a
friend, whose attention had been at
tracted by the controversy.
"l'howing a bloke the advantager of
our railroads over the eastern outflt,"
replied the conductor. "They never ex
plain things where he lives, and I'm
fixing it fbr him so he won't feel like
grumbling another time he travels over
cur ine. Wait till I point out the dif
firence between the school sections anid
the railroad grant!"'
But the touris.t had eeled out of the
pu,'dle and gained the office of the hotel
t: thre disgust of the conductor and his
friend, who were prepared to display all
the attractions of the countsy, rather
than see a stranger depart dissatisfied.
If , utPan wants to be abusive in that
part of the republic, he wants to write

BEST BAKING POWDER.
Interesting Tests Made by the Govorn
ment Chemist.
Dr. ~dward G. Love, the present
Analytical Chemist of the Government,
has recently made some intereeting ex
periments as to the comparative value of
baking powders. Dr. Love's tests were
made to determine what brands are the
most economical to use, and as their
capacity lies in their leavening power,
tests were directed solely to ascertain
the available gas of each powder. Dr.
Love's report gives the following :

A Cute Celestial.
In Butte, where Chinanien piay faro
a good deal, a Ilild-manaucred heathen
pl&d( into a faro game, and after lo.xing a
few dollars, pulled out a little package
of gold dust and ;lid It on the ace. T he
ace lost, and the dealer, picking up the
p:tckage, unfolded it and weighed 9<ut
tihe dust, which was $50 Worth. He 'as
about to cast ithe pape' iaidt~hen the
Celestial motioned to him, and asked
that it might be given back, as it" had
some washi:ng accounts on it. The pa
per was returned, and the next night he
was there again; betting $50 in gold dust
as before. He put his package carefully
on the ace and won. The dealer handed
out $50, and the Chinaman shook his
head.
"What's the matter, John?"
.*"You payee allee I bet-one hundred
and fifty dollars."
The dealer laughed contemptuously,
but tho heathen, unrolling the package,
shor*ed a hBndred dollasi, bill laid iin be
tween the daible pioe aper; hi
contained tae dust.
The dealer looked very cheap -ilt the
Chinaman never moved a muscle. He
acted as if it was a regular thing to keep
a hundred dollargreenback folded up in
his gold dust pick~ gp.;
"Pay it." said the lookout man, "he's
got us dead."
Thesaae bill was put in the paper
ithe nig~t boref, bth.a the~' deaer had
handetM bae i ag gth ;1. wash-bill.
But, of course, this wasn't the China
man's fault-;.-&tl duke rune. .
