the election and when I got elected
this man Rotcnthil buckles on his
belt and comes to Washington to
unseat mo When I finally land
hero safe and bound all tho corres
pondents turn on mo
Some gieat man has said Save

hao been a congressman Tbo
newspapermen all liko mo and I
like them Its love at first sight
Thoyro neiily all my fiiends and
theiebtho trouble Thojto always
iungiltomo whciothe chicken
got the at all out of dead good
hiendshipand I cant kick dont
j ou see Tom Reed says tho lino
between distinction and notoiioty
is mighty slender Ho is right If
dont win distinction Im getting a
lot of notoiioty When the nows
papor boys heir a good story and
thoyro iu doubt about tho author
ship they just saddlo it onto me
and let her go Its liko a gamo of
whibt with them when in doubt
play tiumps I dont mind it my
eoltt but overy paper down in rry
distuct piints it and thoopposjticn
organs double lead ii and then
diawamoial lesson from it The
chances aio its used in the Sunday

schools for a text And then tho
bos get things so mixed
In this contest of mino for in
stance Bill Sterrct sendo it out
that Ill bo unseated the next day
That day the committee blings in
a unanimous leport in my favoi
und ho sends out a telegram Crow
ley is joy Jul to bqnare himself I
get a bundled lettorB from patties
wanting to know what Im joyful
about wasnt I faiily elected
Next comes tho Post w ith a funny
paragraph that Miles Ciowley
would travel 10000 miles to heii
Sulzor muko his maiden speech
adding but picsumablj ho was not
in his scat Just as though Im
never In my seat w hen the fact in
I stick to it liko a cocklebuir to i
ponys tail You couldnt comb me
out of it with a harrow
A little while ago I weiit out in
society put on a lownecked suit
and flashed a diamond in iny fiont
When I wusintioduced to tho swtll
set at tho paity ono of tho ladies
cried out
Is this Mr Ciowley Doiou
know I had pictured you out us a
great bigtall manputh a som 1
brero and hpms and a belt with si
Colts rovoliei
May 1 ask whers you obtained
that impression sas I in my
politest tone
Why from leading about you so
much in the papers sajs she
1 Thorp you co how it is Tin
newspapor notonety is undeiniin
ing my sccial standing as well ii
playing tho do ii with mo politically
I had i merry old time Keeping
that Bloiy out ot tho papois All
my newspaoii fiiends wanted tn
piint it right off If I hadnt stop
ped than tlicy would hae had mo
eating ico cicnin with a foil and
diinking watci out ot tho fingei
bowls
When they want to bo especial
ly funny continual Mi Ciowley
thoy give mo a Bonciy dialect
Now anybody with a half giain ot
sens thats evur heaid mo talk
knows I dont uio slang
Oh now ind then I kt out a
littlo of it Thats all light w hou
youre telling a dialect stoiy got to
do it then But otherwise 1 ufcc tho
1 uceno English as its spoken in
the Hub my natiio city though I
quit sayingawo for viso and
awfteinoon for afternoon when I
went to Texas If theres ono thing
tho pcoplo of Texts aie moie scn
sitivo abont than another its tho
abue of the English language If
a man expected to say vawse as a
regular thing in somoof the iadicil
dihtricts in that state he might as
well pick out hi6 laaketand givo
directions to tho undertaker what
kind of handles ho wants put on
Understand in speaking this
way Im not ailing mj grievance
Im only showing how a man may
be handicapped by his friends foi
no fault of his own
