MONTANA HOItESE WIN. Premium and Jocko Get Away With Pa ciflo Coast Racers on~the Bay Dis triot Course in California. November 19th the Morning Call of San Francisco had an occount of the races run on the Bay District course the preceeding day, from which article the following is clipped: THE FIRST RACE Yesterday was a dash of seven-eights of a mile, with seventeen entries, seven of which came to the post. These were Jini Doughlas, Joe Howell, Premium, Ella Doan, May D., Boulis and Bob. At the first opening of the pool soled on the ground, Jim Doughlas was a great favor ite, selling for $59, Joe Howell $25, and the others, grouped as a field for $20. There were changes before the start for the race, Jim Doughlass, Joe Howell and "the field" selling for the same amount. Bob was as crazy as in the race of a week ago. He did his best to unseat his rider, and after a false start, in which he ran 210 yards it took some time to get him back to the score. It was a very difficult lot to handle and the official who held the flag was unable to bring them into subjection. They danced around for some time, and when the sig nal was given it was about as had a send off as is ever seen. The two favorites were left away behind, so that there was a long gap between them and the leaders and the race was virtually ended so far as they were concerned. AM the outset, Premium was away with the first divi sion, and she increased the lead to quite a gap as they passed the half mile pole. When she went by the. three quarter mark Boulis and May D. were the dear est, and Jim Doughlas hadclosed a large portion of the immense gap, but he was still too far behind to have any hope of victory. From that point home Prem ium had cornparatively an easy task, winning with something to spare; May D. was second' Jim Doughlas, fiotwith-. standing the ground that he lost on the start, third. Tet i(r of Joe Howell wise did not lake i' run for a:victory, which was as nearly inmpossi6beas could be beyond his reach, and Bob, the horse which had made most of the trouble, reached the post last. There was no of ficial time, though outsiders made it 1:29. THE S ECOND RACE. The rAmewwhichý followed was entirely . diflfrent. It was a handicap for three year-olds, and there were six starters, i viz., Maria F., 106 pounds; Oarfield,-For est King, Atlanta and Jocko, each with 100 lpounds, and Lizzie P., 95 pounds. Tue l distance was 'i miles, and a better start nevei vas given to that number of horses. There was scarcely half a length difference when the flag fell and 'all were moving finery- It was a beautiful race. The six were in a bunch whein they passed the stand, saving that For est King had a lead of a. length, though soon aftel-b1e Lal pu.lledback and Lizzie P. was first at the quarter-pole, the half mile having been run in fifty-four sec onds. She still lead when the half-mile maiark was` reached, ann, at that point Jocko wai second, the others so close to gether that it was difficult to separate them. About in dway of the upper turn Jocko came up, and on entering the home stretch it was evident that there would be a merry run home. Garfield was oa the other side of the course, Joc ko in the center, and behind them iror. est, King was coming, and the three had an exciting, tussle as to which would reach the wire first. Neither of the others, however, could get to the Mon tan rbred colt,, an" hey finished firt,' Forest ring, second, Garfield third," with the others not far behind; the time 2:11. Forest King had been a pronounced favorite in the pools, selling for $100, Maria F. $70, and'tbg field $90, at which rate oaire amount of money was stak~id. `he wimner was bred its e na, Montana, and is a very proiamng colt.

Playing 233 Degrees of Masonry on a Wife. A middle-aged lady, with: ablaek al paca dress, worn shiny at the elbows, and cheap shawl, and a cheap bonnet, and her hands puckered up and blue, as though she had just got her washing out went into the office of a prominent Ma son a few mornings ago and took a chair. Shp wiped her nose and the perspiration from her face on a blue-checked apron, and when the Mason looked at her, with an interested, brotherly look as though .she were in trouble, phe said: "Are you the boss Mason?" He blushed, told her he was a Mason, but not the highest in the land. She hesitated one nomerit, fingered the <or ner of her apron,, and curled it up like a boy. speking'a> piece in school' And' asked: "Have you taken the whole 233 dc grees of Masonry?" The mau laughed and told her there were only thirty-three degrees and he had only taken thirty-two. The other degree could only be taken by a very few who were recommended by the Grand, Lodge, and they have to go to Newv York to get the thirty-third degree. The lady studied a moment, unpinned the safety-p n that held her sh~\wl to getlher, but it iii her mouth, took a long breatii and then said: "Wlhere does my husband get the -other 400 degrees, then?" jThe primiinent Mason said he guessed her husband never got~ 200 degrees, un-j less he had a degree factory. He said *he didn't understand the lady. "Does my husband have to setup with a corpse three nights a week?" she asked her eyes flashing fire. "And do they keep a lot of sick Masons on tap for my husband to sit up with the other three eights?" The prominent Mason said he was thankful that few Masons died, and only occasionally was one sick enough to call for Masonic assistance. 'But why do you ask; tl e questions, madam?" said the prohinint Mason. The woman picked up the ringe of her shawl, hung, her head down, and said: "Well, my husband began to join the Masons ablt two years ago, and he has been- taking deg'ees or sitting up with people every night since. He has come home twice with tWe ,wrong , pair of drawers on, an4 when I asked.him how it was, he -aid it was a secret he could not reveal under the penalty of being shot with a canson.,. All he.,woedld say was ae took a dggee. I have- kpt a lit tie tuack of it and I figure that he has taken 233 degrees, including, the grand sky, iugle degree, which he took the night he came home with his lip cut and his ear hanging by a piece of skin." "Oh; madam," ;mod the prominepit Mason, "there is no Sky Fugle degree biV Maponr~. .Yg band has de eeived you.' "That's what I think," she said, as a balefu light appeared in her eye. ' He 1 &tº 1h ky Fwtg4g4 anA f+l through the kyftgxt ;' Ord him sewed up and he 4 was ready for more degrees. After he had taken about 150 degrees I told him I sheuld thipk he would let up en it and put some potatoes Inuam~ t n~g d wen~~ ~ ~ ahaeiarin q didn't amount to anythin; 8Sometimes a brotherM+asoAIow:4 he along with his'I th mrnig n-they 4lq aent aj1l asW ab? si u e bi 'pat hands' Rn' peatg them out.'

He said he had spoken the password and if the brethren ,heard of it they would put him out, of the way, even as Morgan was~put out of the way. Mister, is 'stand ;pat' your' password?" The Mason told her it was not;,. that the words she had, spoken were on ex pression used by men when playing draw poker, and he added that he didn't believe her husband was a Mason at all, but that he had been lying to her all these years. She sighed and said: "That's what I thought when he came home with a lot of ivory chips in his pocket. He said they used them at the lodge to vote on candidates, and that a white chip elects and a blue chip rejects a candidate. If you will look the matter up and see if he has joined the Masons I will be obliged to you. He says he has taken all the 233 degrees, and now the boys want him to join the Knights of Pythias and I want to get out an injunction to prevent him from joining anything eke until we get some clothes for the winter. I'll tell you what I will do. The next time he says anything about the Sky Fugle degrees, Ill take the wash board and make him think there is one degree 'in Masonry he has skipped, and now good bye. You have comforted me greatly, and I will lay awake to-night till my husband comes from the lodge with his pat hands, and I will make him think he has forgotten his ante." The lady went out to the grocery to buy some bar soap, and the prominent Mason resumed his business with a feel ing that we are not all truly good, and that there. is, cheating going on all around., One Editor and a Hundred Fools. The late Hon. John D. Defrees was editing a paper at South Bend, Ind., at the time of the Black Hawk war, and when 300 Hoosier yolunteers went to the scene of action, only to find that the war had come to an end, he saw the comical side of their experience, and published a vetch of what they didn't do, calling theni the "Bloody Three Hundred." The fun fitted exquisitely, but a large number of the men lacked either the sense or spirit to appreciate it, and be came very angry. They went to the young editor's home, a hundred, strong, and called him out,, intVnding to duck him in a mill pond. He came; but in stead of apologizing or begging, for mercy, he stoutly defied them, ridiculed thenm without stint tand taunted tJhem with cowardice in coming a hundred against one, until in shame and, in ad miiration of his pluck, they apologized for disturbing him and beat a crestfallen retreat. A New Story Needed Now. Since Frank James has surrendered himself the number of train robberies may not be lessened, but there will be fewer persons returning from the West with depleted pocketbooks and telling that they met Frank James, who shoved a pistol in their faoe and made thenm give up everything. They will have to concoct i.ome other story, or admit that they didn't understand poker.-Oil 0ity Derrick." Was Glad of it. "I have come in to kill you," said a man entering an Arkansas newspaper office, drawing a pistol and confronting the editor. '"You published an" article derogatory to 'my character, and it is my duty as husband and a father to kill .you?" "I am glad of it," the poor editor re plied. "11 was jist thinkingofr .ommit ting suicide." "Well, if that's the case let's go down and take something." "Now you move me to emotion," and the two deadly enemies went out togeth er. And yet some people are in favor of prohibition. - Dirtheria Cure. In all cases when used Pr. I, B. Ljb liday's Blood Purifierhas proved a cer tain specific for that dread disease diph theria.
