Woman United States Senator.
The Salt Lake Telegram (inde
pendent) advocates the election of a
woman as United States senator, to
succeed Senator Rawlins, whose
term expires in 1903.
"Since in Utah women vote and
have the right to hold office equally
with male citizens," says the Tele
gram, "it seems to us that it is
about time for them to exercise that
right and the extent of its last analy
"The proposition may be radical,
lint so was the idea of woman suf
frage 'radical' a few years ago. At
any rate, and no matter how revolu
tionary the suggestion may seem,
what good reason can be assigned
why some intelligent, capable, popu
lar and gracious Utah woman should
not be elected to the United States
senate to succeed Senator Rawlins?
"We believe in the right of women
to vote and hold office. Why should
they not be given a place in the
United States senate?
"There is nothing but a wormy old
sentiment that the sooner we jump
on the better, in one way.
"There are ladies here in Salt
! Lake who would make ideal senators.
Why not take the new departure and
have the credit of being the first to
break the ice?"

Should the war in South Africa sud
denly come to an end there would be
an abrupt drop of prices in the Ameri
can horse and mule market, for it has
been the American bred remount that
has kept the war moving, as it were.
Over (100.000 .horses and mules have
been employed by the British in South
Africa. Five hundred thousand of these
have been killed or have died of dis
ease. The United States has supplied
over 200,000 of these animals.
Great Britain has spent $95,000.000
counting and remounting her cavalry,
providing motive power for artillery
and refurnishing pack trains. About
205,000 horses and mules were secured
in South Africa and something less
than 100,000 from Argentina, Austria,
Canada, Australia and other countries.
Shipments from these countries have
now been practically abandoned be

and in consequence about six trans
ports a month leave Chalmette, La.,
each carrying from 1.500 to 2.000 head
of American remounts.

purchases of horses and mules foi

covers thirty or forty acres. The sta

and the pastures as many more, and
instead of falling off as the war pro
gresses the station is growing contin
The establishment at Lathrop ,is one
of the finest of its kind in the world.
Seven barns of immense size are there,
three of them of the most modern con
struction. Each will accommodate
1,000 horses without crowding.
When a trainload of horses and
mules reaches Lathrop, the animals
are sorted. Those that are accepted by
the British are sent to the inoculating
station to be tested for glanders. They
are driven into an inclosed space,
where an attendant shaves the hair
from the neck and a veterinary sur
geon injects a quantity of mallein
fluid. Then the animal is turned into
the pasture, where he is watched for
evidence of disease. If the germs of
glanders be there, they will develop in
twenty-four hours, and the animal is
shot and burled.
Some horses are shipped within
three days after arrival, but usunllv

they are kept two weeks, as they must
be taught to eat grain. After passing
all inspections and tests the animal's

is docked, and he is ready for New Or

are driven aboard through long tunnel

and tapering down to a width in which
the animal cannot turn around. From
long experience the methods have been
brought to such a nicety that it re
quires but six hours to load 2,000 head.
The horses being taken by the Brit
ish government do not compare with
those accepted by Uncle Sam. They
are small and of not particularly good
stock. The mules also are undersized.
Bn», the British say the life of au ani
mai in South Africa is only about
three months and that the small, cheap
animal does about as much service as
one larger and more costly. Naturally
the horse dealers and growers of the
southwest are not anxious for a cessa
tion of hostilities in South Africa.

that the outfit for the game requires
only a small outlay of money. Sets are
made by dealers for from $5 to $10.
Second, it is very simple. It is lawn
tennis with such modifications as suit
the different conditions. It may be
played on an ordinary dining room ta
ble. In the center a net is stretched,
supported on either side by movable
uprights, which are made to clamp on
to the edges of the table. This net is
about six inches in height and the bafl
is batted back and forth across it Of
course the height of the net may vary.
The lower it is the more difficult the
strokes may be to return. The server
has greater opportunity to send a low,
swift ball. The best proportions for a
pingpong table are 9 feet long by 5
feet wide, but a table of any porpor

There is one large court. The rackets
are of two sorts. They are considera

tennis rackets and. like these, are
strung with gut or are formed from
single pieces of vellum stretched tight,
ly over a frame, like a drumhead. The
ball used is of light celluloid and is
hollow. It is very lively and is as
elastic as the best rubber. Moreover,
it is so light that it does not endanger
glass. When struck, this tiny globe
gives out a musical pingpong sound;

trials by the server are not allowed.
The player must place his service on
the first attempt. Another important
exception to the tennis rules is that a
player may not volley. The ball must
strike the table and rebound before the
striker has the right to return it. For
the rest, the rules follow pretty closely
those of outdoor tennis. The first point
won counts fifteen; the second sends
the score to thirty, the third to forty,
and the fourth point is the game, but
a player cannot win without being two

little opportunity for moving about, and
the game depends largely on quickness
and reach; hence there is not much va
riety in the play, and the victory seems
to go to the steadier of the two com
batants. No overhand strokes are per
mitted. Some English players have
claimed thut the backhand stroke is the
secret of success, but this is not borne
out by the practice.
Pingpong came to us from England.
There it is a craze. Whole families play
it. Young men and maidens, aged men
and children, have succumbed to its
fascinations, and Society itself, with a

any member of a family complain of

about herself which are unknown ,to
the public the girl will delve, bring
them out and spread them upon the

This book will be largely in the

turning on themselves; so much so
that the Butte genius, as it were, is
getting lost in the shuffle. The new
book will bring the calcium light
again upon her.
It is said in the new book Miss
Maclane will teil how she found the
devil. She says:
"I found the Devil.
"He was sitting on a large rock
overlooking the housetops of Butte.
"He did not see me coming.
"So I found him!
"I said to him: T am poor, little
"He said: T am so sorry!'
"I do not know what he meant by
the remark. I do not care.
"I sat down by his side and I held
fast, fast to his hand.
"It was a not hand.
"It was hotter than my flush.
"I said: T have been looking for
you, Devil. I have been out in the
