Senator Blackburn's fall is a just retribution for his past deeds as a political boss among the Kentucky Democracy. His revolt against the Beckham machine brought his downfall and during his leisure he can pon der over the words of Cardinal Wolsey: "Had I but served my God with half the zeal I served my king, he would not in mine age Have left me naked to mine enemies." Senator Blackburn urged the Gobelites to make the contest that plun ged Kentucky into the shame and disorder of 1899 He advised the fraud that overthrew the election in that year and that brought so much unen viable notoriety to the state of Kentucky. He was one of the prime fac tors in unseating the officers elected by a majority of the people and in causing them to be imprisoned, and exiled from their homes and friends. Retribution is slow but it comes surely and often relentlessly, es pecially to the selfish politician, and Senator Blackburn is enrolled in this class. Happy is the individuaul who is able to see good in everything that happens. We read in an exchange of an old politician who thinks the pro ceedings of the Illinois state convention will be an advantage to' the lie publicans in that state. He predicts that all the Republicans will vote at the forthcoming election, whereas if Yates or Deneen had been nominated by acclamation, some of the Republicans would not have taken any inter set in the campaign and might not even have voted next fall. This is a new kind of political philosophy and will have much consolation in it for the Democracy at this stage of their political game. Mr. Gruelle, the Sentinel's cartoonist, is not popularizing the Demo cratic organ by the cartoons he is drawing for that paper. Decent people in both parties know the genuine ch'iraeter and statesmanship of the two gentlemen he attempts to caricature. Mr. Davenport succeeded once in lampooning the late Senator Hanna but had decency enough afterward to be sorry and made amends as well was possible but Mr. Gruelle is not to be classed with such men as Davenport. Gruelle is a cad. Governor Pennvpaeker is to be commended for the appointment of Attorney General Knox to the United States Senate to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Senator Quay. The Pennsylvania politicians had another Mute but the governor smashed it without even consulting them. Jus! forty years ago, George B. MeC'Iellan was a candidate for the presi dency but was defeated by Abraham Lincoln. There is a probability that the son of Gen. MeClellan will be the Democratic nominee of the St. Louis convention and Avill be defeated by President Theodore Roosevelt. Governor Yates is demanding the immediate resignation of all his ap pointees, v,ho, in an' way, opposed his renommination. The resignations are said not to be coming in very fast. They seem to prefer to leave the of fices by the ax method. Governor Durbin is right when he said, "because our nation stands for peace and friendly relations with all the world, it is fitting that the American people should lead in the movement for international arbitra tion." Because a bull fight did not materialize at St. Louis, a mob burned the amphitheatre. Will there be any mob violence if the St. Louis conven tion fails to a ree on a candidate.? Tt seems to be a mistake about the owners of Chicago flats refusing to rent to families with many children. It is not fewer children they want but bt-tter manners in the children, be they few or man v. Russ.'l Sage does not believe in vacations but works right on and never stoMs only when he is sleeping. His interest goes on even then. WATERMELONS HERE x, . - , , T . Expressions of a Colored Lady When She Saw Them "Lnwd, honev, it's time to begin to live!"

Value of the Atmosphere. Careful experiments have shown that the rate per second at which bod ies acquire velocity in falling through the air is thirty-two feet per second at the end of the first second from start ing. At the end of the next second it is going at the rate of sixty-four feet per second, and so on through the whole time of falling. Where the ve- u fcnowu tbu th h which the body has fallen may be as certained by multiplying tue velocity at that period by the number of sec onds during which it has been falling and dividing the result by two. This rule applies, however, only to bodies falling through a vacuum, The resistance of our atmosphere ma- grow i Braved Ivan the Terrible. Sir Jerome Bowes.

"Oh, I beg your pardon!" she gasped as the ear, jerking over new sinuosities of track perpetrated by the repairs, threw her 'bodily like a luscious wind fallen peach into the lap of a young man who was buried in the day's newspaper. lie looked up amusedly as she gath ered herself from his saving embrace and the total wreck of his paper; then he arose hastily. "Take my seat," lie said courteously, with hat alift and the faintest twinkle In his eyes. "You will hud it more comfortable if I don't." The ambiguous words sounded un gracious to the girl's first confused thought, and she hesitated. lint one glance into the frankly admiring eyes and another repair serpentine decided her. She sank with more haste than grace into the proffered seat, while her preserver stooped to recover her dropped purse, handkerchief and other scattered properties. She rewarded him with smiling thanks, then turned her anxious atten tion to the moving panorama of rain deluged streets outside. The problem in economics as to how she should reach her home, two long cross town blocks from the car line, innocent as she was of umbrella or rubbers, began to absorb her mind. She only vouchsafed one brilliant, perplexed glance upward at the fellow passenger who for her sweet sake was submitting himself to the modern in quisition of 'hanging by a strap tiil lead." Iut in that instant of wireless teleg raphy he perceived her thought an i resolved accordingly. So he rode on past his club block after block till his fair vis-a-vis, having made up her mind to run if not for her own life for that of her new lace hat. signaled the conductor and got off the car. (Jrasping the voluminous tin fiery of her silken skirts in both hands, she poised for 1'ight. when a deep voice ad dressed her in an extremely respectful tone: "We seem to be going the same way, and you have no umbrella. Won't you share mine?" Fragments of Maria's elder sisterly counsels regarding strict propriety floated through her mind as she hesi tated. But the man was evidently a gentleman, and besides there was the pouring rain, and her new hat would be ruined, not to mention this her very first long gown. She put her little hand on his offered arm as trustingly as the child she was. and they set forth. In that short walk lie made himself deferentially agreeable, and she, who had been shut in from all contaminat ing male society by a careful sister of forty, her only guardian, entered into this highly improper escapade with all the guilty joy of a young filly just bro ken out of its stall into forbidden pas tures. She was so naive, yet daringly win some, her soft, long lashed gray eyes were so innocent, yet so mischievous, that it was small wonder that staid .Mr. Harry Bewley, secretary to a high ly respectable millionaire downtown, promptly lost his. big, impulsive. Irish American heart and, what was worse, his handsome head. For as they ascended the brownstone steps of the old mansion and lie real ized that he might never see her again in this great wilderness of New York he rashly begged her to let him call and call ome time soon. The girl was frightened at what she had drawn upon herself. His brown eyes were desperately pleading as he closed the umbrella and stood beside her under the columned shelter of the entrance way. "Oh. please go away." she implored him. glancing apprehensively about and hurriedly fitting her key to the lock. "Some one, perhaps Sister Maria, might see you." "Not till you tell me when I may see you again. I must. Life will never be the same again. Here." he hastily thrust a card into her hand and held it there, "I am with Pronson & Co., Ca nal street. Any one there can tell you that I am not an adventurer nor" "Very well." she interrupted in ter ror, hearing steps inside. "Come next Wednesday evening. Ask for Miss An oline Dwight." She opened the door and was gone from his eager sight. During the next week Mr. Harry Hewley's days and nights were a fer ment of flitting, gray eyed visions in blue flounces aitd adorable lace hats. Anoline! What a beautiful name it was! When Wednesday evening came nt last he made a dart for the door of the oflice promptly at C. something he had never done before and which astonished his employer beyond meas ure. Tlr!t wealthy gentleman had laid the foundation of his millions by walk ing to save car fare and added pi them by underpaying and overworking all the men in his employ. P.ut tonight his secretary slipped rnt and away from the usual hour's work overtime and hurried to his Hub. whore he spent fifteen hasty minutes jit his dinner and an hour and three-quarlers at Ins toilet. Appareled at last to suit his fas tidious taste, he sallied forth to a Mad ison avenue car. Arriving at tlie bouse whose fair dweller had hanuted Ids dreams, he rang fh bell and waited, with his heart thnnipip.g so loud under his stiff dros: shift that he wondered if she could hear U in tr.at second floor front room she had told him wasJher and which he had watched every even ing for a. week in hope of, seeing even ner shadow. The t'.oor was opened by a trim maid. "Io is Miss Anoline Dwight at honi;' he str.ujinered in his, excite ineut fumbling in his eardyf!se'.k The maid stared and then glglodiT but in a moment straightened her de portment to' its usual dignity. "Yes, sir; I guess she's downstairs," she remarked; then glancing doubt fully at the bit of pastboard, "Shall I take this to 'er'r" And the giggle threatened to break bounds again. "Certainly." responded Mr. I.ewley in his most lofty manner, though he reddened visibly. What the deuce ailed the girl '! he wondered. Probably Miss Dwight was at dinner. He hoped he had not come too early. He anxious ly consulted his watch. Nine o'clock was not so late. A burst of laughter from below, whither the servant had repaired, startled his embarrassment anew, and the words "Plug hat, too," floated up to him. When she came back she was at no pains to conceal her mirth. "Jos' step this way, sir," she giggled. And he followed her, much perturbed, to the basement. "GenTman to see Miss Dwight," she announced loudly, opening the kitchen door with a flourish and abruptly with drew to a back room, whence muffled explosions of mirth issued at inter vals. "Yo' wan' see me, sub?" A huge black bulk in turban and white apron waddled toward him. "I's Miss Aner line Dwight de cook ob dis yer 'stab lishment." On confronting the African appari tion Mr. Bewley stared, opened his mouth to speak, then fled. When he emerged, wrathful, wretched, disap pointed anfl humiliated, lie went back to the club and called himself all the unpleasant names he could think of. He arose next morning with the lark or what corresponds to it in the city, the milk wagons and delighted his employer by being first at the office: also for several mornings thereafter. But a reward other than oflicial ap provalcold comfort though it was awaited him a few days later, in the form of a dainty blue note sealed with white wax. It was from Sister Maria, as follows: My Dear Mr. Bewley Through a chance remark of one of the servants today 1 was led to question my sister N'ell concerning a hoax she very unjustly played upon you the other evening'. Nell is very young and inexperienced, and I have tried to be father and mother both to the orphan child. So I write now to ask your partlun for her impropriety and later rudeness to you. Your desire for further acquaintance, if you still cherish such, may possibly be furthered if you can find a mi'iual friend through whom to receive the usual formal ities of an introduction. 1 Lies' to remain yours very t.-uiy. ma in a i,. nr.OoTKR. Harry groaned in despair as be read. How could he ever hope among tiTe several millions who inhabited the is land of Manhattan to find one who knew Mis Noll Broster. The prover bial needle in the haystack was an easy search as compared to this. But a tiny penciled word at the bot tom of the page caught his eye: "Over." He turned the page and with it turn ed a new and joyful leaf in his life, for it held all the sweetness of love's young dream. This is what he read: P. S. Sister g-'ive me this to mail. She has probably forgotten to say that I was a roommate at boarding school of your Mr. Uron.von's niece and ward Mabel. You go there every Saturday to audit hia household accounts, don't vou? NBL.L, BROSTER. P. S. No. 2. Mabel has asked me to lunch with her next Saturday. N. B. IIott Jerry Kept Hist 1'romine. In a year uf bad crops and great dis tress some of the tenants of my great grandfather. Cumhleton, like many of their neighbors, took to running away with stock and crops, leaving empty lands for their landlords. Gumbleton begged one of his tenants, in whom he had some, though perhaps not much, confidence, not to follow such an evil example. "You will solemnly promise tae. Jeri-," said he, "that at any rate you will not go without giv ing me warning." Jerry solemnly promised. One bleak and stormy winter night Gumbleton, while retiring to bed about midnight, was startled by the noise of gravel flung at his windows. He look ed out into the darkness and called, "Who is there?" "It's Jerry Hagarty, yer honor," shouted a voice through the storm. "Oh, Jerry, is that yourself? What business have you on such a night, man?" "Just to keep my promise of giving warning to your honor. I said, you know, I wouldn't run away without letting your honor know of it. I am running away now. Good night to your honor and goodby." So Jerry ran away, stock, crops and all being also en route. Gael. ot i Canary Comedian. There had been a business transac tion between Mr. Finch and a friend regarding a canary. When Mr. Finch became the proud possessor of the little yellow creature he had not unreasonably expected it to burst into song at intervals. But nature has not been so kind to feminine canaries as to the sterner sex, and, iu spite of every encouragement, birdie refused to carol. Therefore Mr. Finch was angry with his bird fancying friend. "That's a nice sort of canary you sold me!' he said. "Why. what's wrong with it?" "It won't sing." "What does it do. then?" "It docs nothing but hop about the cage from morning till night." "Well, old chap, be reasonable. You surely didn't expect a bird that would sing and dance too?"

BIG CROWD AND AN IDEAL DAY Richmond Showed That They Had Little Practice Discounting Score Game Good. Hank fielding and a multiplicity of errors that weir the result of poor practice and little of it, gave the Matthews the game yesterday after j it looked as though Kichmond stood j a good chance to win. The game, how- . ever, was considered by all to be a good one in a measure, the chief draw back being the losing of the game by Richmond. The crowd was quite a ; large one and all were out for a good 1 ball game. The game started out with a vim, and up to the fifth inning the contest was close and exciting. The Mat thews played hard for the crowd was with Kichmond from the strat, which, did a good deal toward helping the local boys. About the fifth inning, however, things began to grow dark, and the cirors pild up fast. Second and center were two weak points, but the entire field was not at its best, by any means, and the inevitable result followed. Score 7 to 3. Line-up : Richmond Haas, If.

Smith to task for some things he said about the present tax law and debt paying in this state. It says: "In trying to make a little Demo cratic capital out of this legislation Mr. Smith ignored the record, and states what did not happen. The bill for amending the tax law was in charge of Senator Howard, of South Bend, chairman of the senate finance committee. It was considered by. that committee and the committee of ways and means from the house in joint ses sion. There was not th slightest op position to it by any of the Republican members of either committee. There was no politics in it, and it was be lieved to be meritorious legislation by Republicans and Dsmocrats. There was no lobby about the l?g:slature fighting it, and no opposition to it on the floor of either house. It passed end became a law, was upheld by the courts and has been enforced by Re publican administrations ever since. It put more money into the treasury than had ever been put there before, and by wise and economical manage ment of the state's business a surplus was created with which ihe state's ob ligations were greatly reduced. It is just to the Democrats of the legis lature of 1891 to say that they builded better than they knew, but greater credit is due to a party capable of th honest and faithful enforcement of a law, than to one that had merely spread it upon the statute boo!:3." It is said that whether a nrni erot into the recent Parker convention or not depended not so much unon his credentials as upon whether he ware a Parker tag or not. HOW'S THIS?
