Solomon and the Neek ef tha Vulture Io the beginning the birds bad no feathers, bat at last word was brought that the Great Spirit had their clothes ready If they would send some one for them. Am the distance was long-, the turkey buzzard was selected on ac count of his endurance, and in recogni tion of the service he was to have first cnoice of apparel, the one condition be tas; that he could try no suit on the second time.. Can you guess the re sult? For one trifling objection or another he let all the fine feathers go by until, to his horrified astonishment, there was nothing left but the poor, commonplace suit that he wears to day. We talk conceitedly of the airship as though a brand new invention of the modern brain when thousands of years ago King Solomon had a most satisfactory one, a magic carpet upon which he frequently took a spin through space. Only one fault could le found with this carpet touring car. It, had no covering, and too often the sun shone uncomfortably upon the royal head. Now, the wisdom of Solo mon Included a rare linguistic accom plishment. The king spoke the lan guage of birds. 8o one day when out riding on his carpet he called upon some passing vultures to hold their wings over him by way of awning. Dut they were going north, the king toward the south, snd to his righteous Indignation the birds Insolently re fused. . "Cursed be ye, O vultures ! be cried to wrath. "And because you will not obey the commands of your lord who rules over the whole world the feath ers of your necks shall fall off and the beat of the sun and the coldness of winter and the keenness of the wind and the beating of the rain shall fall upon your rebellious necks, which shall not be protected with feathers like the necks of other birds, and, whereas yon have hltberto fared delicately, hence forward you shall eat carrion and your race shall be impure until the end of the world." According to Arab folklore, one day Allah called the south wind to him, condensed It, took a handful, blew upon It the breath of life and thus cre ated a horse. But the steed at once began to find fault. His neck be com plained, was too short .to reach the grass, his back had nothing to steady a saddle, his hoofs were so sharp that they , would surely sink Into the sand. Instead of reproving his ingratitude lu words Allah then created the camel as an object lesson of reproach. The horse shuddered at the sight of what he wanted to become, and this is the reason that every horse starts when first meeting his caricature. . Perhapa you have not had the op ' portunity of gazing dentist-wise into the mouth of a coyote and so have never wondered why its back teeth looked as though they were broken off and forced down into the gums, but you must surely have come across many an empty locust skin. To the south , of the Zunl lands In Mew Mexico a coyote once started out hunting, but got no farther than the foot of a certain old pine tree, so fas clnated did he become in a locust who sat playing a flute and singing in one of its branches. In fact, such was the animal's enthusiasm that he insisted Upon taking a lesson on the spot. Hla voice proved hoarse and growly, but he persevered until he learned the words of the locust song and turned homeward, proudly repeating them, . when by bad luck he fell into a go pher's hole, said other words under his breath and forgot hla lines. . Back to the pine tree he trotted, gain Imposed upon the locust's good nature, ouce more sallied forth in tri umph. But this time as he practiced aloud he frightened a flock of pigeons that flew out with such a noise as com pletely to muddle his brain, and there waa nothing left for him but' another appeal to the wornout locust. Now, even a music teacher will turn, and the locust, seeing him coming from afar and having heard that coyptes ate Insects, decided to rid himself of this tiresome fellow. No sooner thought than done. In a flash he swelled up, split his skin and. crawled out Find ing at hand a clear, light colored bit of quarts, he put It In the empty skin. niucUaged it up the back with pitch and flew off to another tree.- The trick worked to a charm. The coyote called out to the supposed lo cust again and again without receiving reply, became enraged, snatched the effigy out of the tree and bit so bard ou the stone that be ran yelping away. The water of a creek partly soothed his pain, but ever since the mouth of a coyote baa shown the effect of that tragic bite, and "whenever a locust ventures out on a summer morning to ing a song it Is his custom to protect himself from the consequences of at tracting too much attention by skin ning himself and leaving his counter part in the tree."

Savage, the American producer of "The Merry Widow," has a new up-to-date offering which will be seen at the Gennett Thursday ev ening in "Miss Patsy," which comes here direct from ' an engagement of one hundred nights at the Chicago opera house. Theatergoers of this city will have an opportunity of see ing this famous farce before it is tak en to New York. Mr. Savage has as sembled one of the strongest casts of funmakers ever associated together, including six of the original princi pals of the George Ade comedy "The College Widow" which he sent to London. The company is headed by Gertrude Qulnlan, who will be remem bered as the original slangy waitress in "The College Widow." She has been provided in "Miss Patsy" by author Sewell Collins with a part that fits her particularly eccentric per sonality like a glove. She is assisted by Laurence Wheat, one of the clev erest young light comedians of the day. Mr. Wheat has been a star' and leading man of some of the foremost comic opera productions of the past few years and the company Includes Adeline Dunlap. the athletic girl of "The College Widow," Thomas Meigh- an, Dan Mason, Jennie LaMont, Maude Earle, Annie Buckley, W. E. Bonney, Josephine Brown, Hazel Tuppen Gladys Turner, Beth Harkness, Frank Dee, Arthur Hoyt and Forrest Winant The entire production will be staged here exactly as at the Chicago Opera house without any change either in the cast or effects. The piece is de scribed as the very acme of hilarity and Chicago is still rocking with the mirth it created there. Its fun is sweet and clean and it contains no sugges tion or risque illusions which so often mar a farcical performance. Seats are now on sale. - s Carter of the Lazy "Y.' Greeted by a crowded house and againdemonstrated the ability of the company to amuse. The play is a de parture from the two plays previous ly presented and was a happy combi nation of the west and east. The first two acts taking place in : New York City and the latter acts moved to Ari zona. .The story of the play tells a sane and logical combination, of ev ents and was highly enjoyed by - the large audience. John Carter, owner of the Lazy Y ranch is on a visit to New York, while there he learns of, the financial embarrassment of his old school friend, Landon Dillingham. He comes to the rescue of his old school friend, and saves him from a crash in Wall street. He Is smitten by the charms of Langdon's eldest daughter and although she is in love with Har rison Swift, consents to a marriage with Carter because her father, un der the mistaken idea that he is doing the best for his daughter's future, deceives her Into the belief that the only way to save him from ruin is this marriage. The second act the husband finds out after the marriage that his wife of an hour, loves anoth er. Then he leaves her and returns to the ranch to forget. The final acts finds the Easterners in the west and all misunderstandings are righted as the final curtain descends. John A. Preston, the author of the play appear ed In the title role, giving a very cred ible rendition of the character. Mr. Roseelli, as Harrison Swift, Mr. Atch ley, as "Hi, Mr. . Greenfield, as Percy, and Mr. Terriss as Dillingham, aided materially to the success of the play. Miss Smith made a pretty and artistic Isabel, and is sure to become popu lar. Miss Rowland made new friends as Bessie, and Miss Hall contributed an artistic piece of character work, as the WIdder.

The 8cret of His Loyalty to the Con demned Man. ' A negro was executed in a prison not many hours journey from the city not long ago, says the Philadelphia Times. For several months prior to his de parture he had been visited by a faith ful friend who brought him chicken, possum, sweet potatoes, cigars and other things.. The bearer of these good things seemed to be under some trouble. It was suspected that be had some inti mate knowledge of the crime for which the other was to be executed. The se cret came to light on the morning of the execution, when one of the guards overheard this conversation between the two men: "Now, Jim, didn't I done do every thing I could for you?" "Yes, Bill, you has sho fu'filled all ob yo obligation an' squared 'counts fo' dem crap games, an' I sho' is bilged to yo." "And, Jim, does yo swear that yo' won't come and ha'nt me after yo's done gone an' been banged?"

"This ability to resist the minute organisms which cause the malady is called Immunity, and In tropical countries where yellow jack Is always present It is turned to profit in various ways. , "Thus during the Spanish-American war regiments of immunes were en listed in the south for service in the fever ridden country about Santiago. Again, during an epidemic, in New Or leans many persons purposely exposed themselves to Infection because the disease prevailed in a very mild form, jmd they concluded that if they were Infected they would quickly recover and would be Immune during severe epidemics in the future."

Capflei? oil tfflne Thought Marshall Lacking Presidential Timber Member of Democratic Resolutions Committee Tells How Turned Over to Governor's Worst Indianapolis, Ind., May 3. Little by little the aftermath of the democratic Etate convention is coming out and ev ery bit that comes to the surface is in eresting. for it shows that politics was played with a vengenance. One of the best stories of the bunch is the one about the refusal of the platform committee to insert in the platform a plank indorsing governor Marshall as a candidate for president There was a sensation in political cir cles when it was discovered after the convention that this had been omitted from the platforto, for It had been ex pected all along that the convention would fairly throw itself to make such indorsement. Visions of great cheer ing, hats In the air, arms waving, canes swinging and handkerchiefs fluttering when this plank was read, caused many people to believe that there would be a grand scene in the convention a real ovation in honor of the governor. But the ovation did not come. The delegates did not "ovate" worth a cent. A member of the resolutions com mittee was talking yesterday about the failure of the committee to recommend an indorsement of the governor for president. "I don't know who wrote it, but there was before the committee & written plank in which such an indorsement was . made," he said. "Some one brought it in and I am informed that it came from the state house. It came in with some other matter that was sent over from the governor's office, but I do not know whether this partic ular sheet came from the governor's office or not. But you should have seen what was done to that proposi tion when it was presented to the com mittee. The committee was almost unanimous against the adoption. No one seemed to want to indorse Mar shall for president. The members said they did not regard him as big enough for presidential timber. The plank proposed indorsed not only his candidacy for president but indorsed his administration as governor. The very first thing was to draw pencil lines through that part which indorsed him as a candidate for president. We left in that, part which indorsed his administration as governor, however. Then, when this was done it was decid ed to turn the whole business over to Lawrence Becker, mayor of Hammond, with instructions to prepare a plank which would be satisfactory to the committee. "Everybody knows what Becker thinks of Marshall, so the very fact that Becker was asked to prepare the indorsement shows the kind of in dorsement the committee wanted. Say, if that committee had indorsed Mar shall for president a few of us would have presented a minority report. We would not 'have stood for it. The idea of indorsing that man Marshall for president. It is ridiculous." Some one got hold of the tentative plank after the convention the one through which the pencil lines had been drawn, and it has been shown and has been printed in Indianapolis papers. Just how it got out or how the story became public no one seems to know, for the members of the reso lutions committee made an iron-clad agreement among themselves that they would not disclose anything that hap pened in the committee meeting. This matter has stirred up a big muss. Before the convention it seem ed like a certainty that Marshall would be indorsed as a candidate for presi dent. It was to be a case of "favorite son." But the plan slipped a cog somewhere. And now, it is pointed out it would be very difficult for Marshall to get any kind of a ; unanimous in dorsement from the dempcrats of his own state that would do him any good at the next national convention.

It is believed here that the Taggart crowd is for Harmon and against Marshall for president, and it is known that Harmon is the choice of Mayor Becker. Stories are also coming out about how the wires were pulled which adopted the governor's plan for the nomination of a candidate for United States senator. Much of the blame for this result is laid by the Taggart people at the door of SU Joseph county, though not all of ; it. Vanderburg county is blamed for a part of the fail ure of the Taggart forces to head off the plan. It is said that the Taggart people had the delegates from Vander burg county sewed up so that it was believed they could not get away. Van derburg was one county where the op position felt sure that te governor could not break in. But the story now being told is, that the change was brought about by Jack Nolan, former mayor of Evansvllle. It is said by Taggart people that Nolan believes he is to be appointed a member of the state tax board, and that he broke into the delegation and took a part of it away from -Taggart and gave it to Mar shall's plan. Whether, this is the truth or not cannot now be verified, but the story is being told. Then Dekalb county was expected all along to vote against the adoption of the governor's plan. In fact the Tag gart people say that they had definite promises from DeKalb county. But when the time came Dekalb supported the governor. Dekalb is in the twelfth district, which is governor Marshall's home district, and it would only be natural to suppose that it would support his plan, but in spite of this fact the Taggart crowd insist that they were thrown down by that county. In St. Joseph county, the failure of the Taggart crowd to land the dele gates is charged to the fierce factional Sights which have , raged u there for years. Much of the blame is laid by some of the Taggart men at the door qf Senator Shively. They say he did nothing up there to help kill oft the governor's plan. One man said yes terday: "Shively is a great big man that does nothing. It was the understanding that he would take care of St. Joseph county and that he would get its votes. But they got away. We understand now that Fbgarty and his crowd did it, and that they split the delegation and kept is away from Taggart because they knew Shively was opposed to the governor's plan. They hate Shively so bad that they could not stand .with him on anything. Some of the fellows believe, also, that Frank E. Hering of South Bend, ad something to do with throwing a 3art of this vote to the governor. Shively and Hering have fought, polit ically, for years, and the feud between ehem is said to be fierce. Hering was here at the convention , and this has given rise to the talk that probably he took a quiet whack at Shively in this way. If Vanderburg. or St. Joseph or even Dekalb county had voted against the governor- instead of with him, the plan to nominate a candidate for senator would have been defeated. The vote was so close that a change of sixteen votes would have changed the whole result, V Another story that Is being told is that Steve Fleming, of Fort Wayne, while not enthusiastic over the gover nor's plan, supported it because he is to be allowed to name some of the appointees to state positions.' 8 It is said that when the time comes to name a state oil inspector to succeed Sid Conger and to name the forty odd deputy oil inspectors, Fleming will have the say so about who shall be ap pointed.

Only time will tell whether this is straight or not, but it is believed by a good many persons. A story was printed here yesterday to the effect that it was Taggart's in tention at the convention, to divide Ma rion county's vote and give half of it to Joseph H. Shea, of Seymour, and the other half to Major G. V. Meniies of Mt, Vernon, for the nomination for senator. There was no intention, it is said, to give Kern any of the Tag gart votes. When Taggart found that he could not be nominated himself and he" saw that it was certain that the nominee would be some one else, it is said that he passed the word around for Marlon county to split its vote on the first ballot between Shea and Men lies. But after the third ballot had been taken and the result announced and it was seen that Kern was going to be nominated on the fourth ballot, the other candidates, led by John E. Lamb, made speeches withdrawing their names from the race and throw ing their support to Kern. After sev eral of them had done this Taggart got up and announced his own withdrawal and said he believed the people of In diana, wanted Kern for senator and he hoped he would accept.
