"I c: m To Kansas joint keeper: not tell a lie; I did it with my little hatchet."—Carrie Nation* Washington would have been 169 years old to-day had he lived, died in 1799 at the age of 67. He Stock quotation—Whisky was firm, owing to recent reports from Kansas. , While we are casting backward* 1 thoughts of Washington's life, let j us not forget that the Nation and the little hatchet still live and are doing business in bleeding Kansas. The Idaho Legislature will have no more junket trips in theirs. They arrived at this conclusion after the Utah solons had been to Boise. The Kentucky distillers have as sured the tipplers of Kansas, that their stock of whiskies is larger than ever this year, so that there need be no fear that Mrs. Nation and her hatchet will cause a famine in these spirits. If Washington could come back to earth to-day, how astonished he would be to .find a counterpart of the revolution he took partin, going on in South Africa against the same country he fought for so many years. But his astonishment would be still greater to find the country he freed trying its best to smother the spirit of independence in a far off group of islands. Can anyone doubt which side would have his sympathy and support? Something to Please. m f (l •€! v * o % o You will find in our «took of WINES AND LIQUORS that which will please you.

Owing to the small amount of snow, and the fact that the coming season is apt to be a very dry one, an Afton man advised that the peo ple plant their potatoes with every alternate row of onions. The ob ject of this is, that the onions will be exceedingly dry and strong and will make the eyes of the potatoes water and thus save the whole crop. Have you ever heard of anything more simple?—Pioneer. Attempted Burglary. A bold attempt to burglarize the store of S. A. Mills took place last Saturday night at 2 o'clock. Mr* Mills sleeps in his place of business and was awakened by a noise at the front door, and getting out of bed saw a man working at the window. He had his pistol in his hand and should have fired at him, but could not make up his mmd to do so, but instead asked the man what he was doing, whereupon the miscreant im mediately took to his heels and dis appeared. On investigation it was found that he had cut through apiece of mould ing which holds the glass in place and had pried the moulding off with his knife and in a few minutes would have gained an entrance, and if the store had not had an occupant would no doubt have got away with what he wanted.—News.
