We do not crave office, and aro a very busy man, but the pressure be came so great we had to give in. Last Tuesday evening the city can* 1 (*us was held, and instead of being ] nominated for mayor we received only three votes out of upward of sixty cast. Our friends were nus , taken when they insisted that we; | were wanted. Instead of being the unanimous choice of the patriotic ' people, we had the pleasure of seeing Jerry Laxter, the meanest man in j town, given the nomination. ; (J, well, that’s human nature right ! (through, and an editor fool enough j to go in politics deserves to he driven ! head ti'st into the tanbark as we were. We have a word to say how- j i ever: The Kicker w ill not only bolt ! ••very candidate on the ticket, but : we guarantee to have nine-tenths j •id the nominees iii prison before I they are a month older. Vein cum ((iranis! which is Latin for saying:; Dou’t luoiik- v with a newspaper. A Base Falsehood.-—We have as certained that it was Colonel Kchne who started the story that wo bad I the proprietor of the lied Star saloon ’ lynched bv a mob last week in order , to avoid paying him a liqoor bill of i ?18. We encountered the colonel in 1 Davis’ livery barn yesterday, grab j bed him by iho threat and backed I him against the heels of a stage mule, tnd between us and the mule the colonel received a drubbing which : ; will last him a life-time. He ac ; knowlcdged that he was a liar, slan derer and thief, and that his course ' j towards us was actuated by personal ! M»ite. At that moment he had on .>>ir second best ut dershirt, our Sun day necktie and the pantaloons that we never wear except on holidays, ' and was iu debt to us for many other favor*. As to the lynching, we suggested ,t h cause Tim O’Niel. the victim, J had fallen into th•• habit of killing :i . < j man about seven times a w eek, and j there was every reason to believe j ! that the coroner was stunting in with < 'union f-es. We should have sug-j gested stretching the coroner’s neck , i little at the same time, but as be: brought us in a club ot thirteen sub ; <,-libers xo didn’t think it would look exactly right.

He Carried the Basket. A lady who lives in the suburbs of | Tacoma, \\ . T., was down in the ! city recently buying and marketing, i Sho had a basket full aud was j " oiu ß to t,lc corner of Ninth street and St. Helen’s avenue for the pur pose of taking the motor line for her j i,omc - Sho had a petite and rather i youthful figure, but is about fifty years of ago and has been a widow for a decade. A dapper young man, who was also a “masher,” saw her and approaching, asked if he might not help her home with her basket. Now this widow hates dapper young men and especially mashers; there fore she told the young man he might see her home and carry her basket. He thought he had made an immense j bit, and ho also thought in the dim I light that the widow was a beautiful i young lady. The widow trans ! ferred her basket to the dapper young j man’s arm and relinquished her idea • f ri ling home in the horse cars, in -•rder that she might have a bushel basket of fun, she started with her escort for a walk of about fifteen life size, full-length squares. The basket got frightfully heavy in about five bloeks; in ten it was a lingo white elephant, and by the time the two reached the lady’s residence it was one of the pyramids of Egypt, and the dapper young man was badly blown and altogether broken up. The widow rang the bell at the door and a grown young Udy came, ask ing: ‘ Why, ma, what did you ring the bell for? The door was not locked.” The dapper young man almost fainted, and when the widow said: “Won’t you come in, sir? My husband would be yery glad to see you,” he was paralyzed. But ho re covered quickly and went away from there, and that widow has been hav ing convulsive fitß of laughter ever since, in which she is ably seconded by her daughter and tho remainder of the family. The masher has been taking iron and quinine ever since to build up his strength. AN EXQUISITE ENGRAVING. Gateway to the Garden of the Gods, Colorado with view of Pike's Peak in the Middle Distance.

Isn’t that true, mother? Mother had quietly fallen to sleep on the sofa by Mr. Gush’s side, and as he laid his hand carelessly on her shoulder she gave a little snort of de nance, and said sharply: “Get up yourself and build the fire, Sam Gush. I built it last, and I’ll see you in Guinea before I’ll build it this morn ing, you—oh—oh—l—why, where am I?
