Washington. Seiiatoi Coke of Texas in a ruL'ired specimen of humanity. He reminds oiio, in his sturdy power, of a mighty oak, or whoti he becomes excited in debate, of an old-fashioned windmill, lie does not care a rap about finickv | amenities, or any formal observance, ! except the insistance that he shall j not be interrupted in business. At ! tbe Rational Hotel he occupies a spa. t cious suite of rooms Absorbed in I his writing one day, he was rudely slapped «*n the shoulder bv a stal ; w *rt greaser: “Hello, Diek Coke, how was?” “Who are you and what i «lo you want here?” demanded the j Senator, as if he took the fellow for a burglar. “I’m Bill Snaggs from Coynteville.” “How did you get in here?” interrupted the angry states man. “I walked in, seeing that these here rooms belonged to the state of 1 **xas, I thought I'd just drop in and I make myself at home, and you needn’t I he putting any d—d airs with me.” j Since you have done me this honor,” ! replied Senator Coke beginning to j be inwardly amused, “I will just give , you a little lessoQ in Washington manners. Just g« out by the door j through which you came and inquire 1 at the hotel desk if Senator Coke i | in? If the y *av yes, come back, | knock at the door, and ask the per son who opens it the same thing.” The Texan hesitated, but seeing tire in the Senator’s eyes, complied with his directions. Coke was alone in his apartment, hence when he heard the knock he opened the door him self. “Is Senator Coke in?” asked the visitor, looking dazed. “Not to callers, he is occupied with some mat lers of special importance to the state and cannot he interrupted by vistors to-day. Sorry. Call again.” As the fellow stalked off tie was heard mut tered: “Well I’ll be darned.”— American. ROCK ISLAND AHEAD. The Lidtast Tiling: in Tour ist Sloeping Cars. The Rock Island has inaugurated a new feature, which promised to cre ate considerable interest in railway improvement, it being a free tourist car service, with nearly all the con veniences of the palace car, includ ing colored porter m attendance, tine hair mat tresses, pillows, blankets, soap. etc. When made up for the night, the fourteen sections are par titioned off w ith sliding pannels. and • curtained with heavy damask draper I ies. Tables, attachable to the sides of the interior, are provided for each ! section. The car* are heated bv I steam, the aisles carpeted, and cus | pidors for the cleanliness of the cars, are added. The duties of the porter accompanying each car will be simi lar to those of the palace ear service —to look after the wants of the pas senger at d see that the car is kept , perfectly clean In one end is the j ladies’ lavatory, and in the other, one j for gentlemen, which are as nicely appointed and furnished as the most fastidious would desire. The inten tion of the Chicago, Kansas Sc Ne braska is to furnish these cars free of charge to tourist or excursion par ties when the number of persons is sufficiently large to justify the use of a car or cars. With such accommo dations, and without change, there is no further necessity of a western tour Without sleeping accommodations, nor is it necessary to make suck a trip expensive. It is a g r eat induce ment for parties, any con siderable number of persons contem plating a trip to the Rocky Moun tains, for instance. And, too, the Denver St Ri • Hr ip le I ns adopted the same scheme, and as the Rock Island connects with this route in Colorado, the free tourist car system will uo doubt be generelly adopted by those in search of the pleasure and health giving regions of onr con tinent. — Kansas City JoiVwa!.' i Legal Holidays.

Pete Roth, the butcher, killed a steer a few days ago, in the course of professional duties, and on one of the jaw bones of the esteemed de ceased an extraordinary dental pbe nomenon presented itself. Each tooth in the jaw bone was plated with a metalic substance which look ed like copper or dull gold. The teeth were as neatly planted with thin layers of the curious metal as though some bovine dentist had been operating upon the steer for bad teeth. Who can account for this extraor dinary fact? A New Mexico steer i9, of course, superior to any other steer in the world, but his most san guine friend and champion did not suspect that he had reached such a stage of development that he was compelled to call in the services of a tooth carpenter to take care of his grinders. This freak of nature (the teeth, not the steer,) nan be seen at the St. Nicholas Hotel.—Las Vegas Optic.

Be fore the new trial came on Lacefield was discovered living in the south erii part of the county. He stated that'when shot anti thrown into the river by Scarlett he revived, crawled out and left the county for awhile, not caring if Scarlett was hanged foi his murder. When the new trial t-ame on the other day Scarlett was released from custody and now he can scarcely realize the good fortune of again being free after so narrow ly escaping death on the scaffold.— Trinidad Advertiser. The Salvation Army in London has struck off sharply on new lines of operation on the old policy of Charles Kingsley who preached the gospel of cleanliness and wholesome food. It has been banging tambour ines and shouting for the Lord in the streets, until the new course was de termined upon about a year ago, and its results were not specially encour aging, because they were not perma nent. Food and shelter depots have been established in v.irio is parts of London by General Booth, and a penny secures a meal or a warm lodging. Twelve homes for fallen women have been established, and in a singlo year nearly a thousand women have been rescued from shameless lives. This is practical Christianity and sound humanity. Daily N. Y. Graphic. There is a difference between the love of man and waman which is too much overlooked, for it has a vital bearing upon the duty of the one and the dangers of the other. In love, man simply takes another to himself* woman, on the oontr.ary, gives her self to another. To him, it is a new factor in life; to her it is itself a new life. To him, it is primarily an ac quisition, to her, it is essentially a surrender; hence it is that the aver age love in man is of a lower order than that common to woman. What in him is self-gratification, in her is self-sacrifice. The difference, sharp ly put. Is the difference between pas sion uud devotion.—Ex. The wild flowers are already be ginning to appear, and the meadow larks end rod winged blackbirds have come. Signs of spiingo arn ever> NUMBER 43. It is reported that the southern part of KaLsas will be depopulated now that the Oklahoma country has opened. There is a great rush for the lands and one man has already been killed in a dispnteover a claim. This is only a beginning of a bloody strife down there and in less than one year the ground will be a deep red, colored with the blood of the tenderfoot that will bite the dust in dispute over a little patch of dirt. How foolish people will act. Why not come to «astern Colorado where there is room for all. Where the water is purer, the climate more healthy, and the land richer.—Chey eone Wells Gazette. One ot the transfer horses of Brown <k Co., known as “George,” worked o.i Barlow, Landers & Co’s, stage line between Pueblo and Trin idad twenty-five years ago. After the railroad was built to El Moro, he was used on the mail route between 1 rinidad and that place, and since Trinidad became a railroad center he has been constantly employed as a ’bus horse. Chris Taylor says he drives him to the train twice a day, and that he is as skittish as most horses only ten years old.—Trinidad News. J. H. Moreland was in town this week, congratulating himself over bis success in agricultural pursuits, already having forty m-res broke and ready to plant. He expects to put in 50 to 60 acres of corn and 15 acres of sorghum, and fire or six acres of miscellany, such as beans, melons, peas, squashes, pumpkins, sweet po tatoes, peanuts, etc. Mr. M. also has 46 acres in wheat, makiug an aggre gate of over 100 acres.—Chi vington Chief. A bright youth, undergoing exam ination a few days since for admis sion to one of the Government de partments, found himself confronted with the question, “What is the dis tance from the earth to the sun?” Not having the exaot numbe of miles with him he wrote m reply: “I am unable to state accurately, but don’t believe the suu is near enough to in terfere with a proper performance of my duties if I get this clerkship.” Bert G. Beller, formerly of this city and a member of the A. O. U. W. lodge of this place, died at St. Louis a few days ago. His death was the result of injuries received while at workin the mines at George town, Colo., last summer.—Rocky Ford Enierurise. Mr. Beller was at one time a resi dent of Lamar. It is reported that an engineer who recently carried a railroad man to Raton on his engine, upon his return to Las Vegrs was given his choice either to plank down the man’s fare or resign his place at the throttle. The money was soon forthcoming and it is safe to conclude there will be no more free rides on that engine. —Trinidad Advertiser. Mr. Moreland was over near Bran don to procure seed corn, Tuesday. He purchased of Mr. Artlev for 50 cents per bushel. Mr. Artley raised about 500 bushels last season and is putting in a hundred acres this sea son. He knows what the country will do, because he has tried it.— Chivmgton Chief.
