Mrs. Radnor. "Don't von remember

on it? I tipped something over

"Why. I haven't seen that for

French Judicial Official Badges.
In the waistcoat pocket of an old
jailbird just arrested in Paris once
again a curious discovery was made
on his being searched. A silver
medal was found bearing the name
and address of a country examining
magistrate. Similar tokens are issued
to all judicial officials in France, and
also to Deputies and Senators, and
serve on occasion as proof of identity.
In this case there was no doubt ihat
the prisoner and the official described
on the medal were quite distinct persons.
.The former, on being questioned,
said that the token in r:?iss!
tion had been given him 1>3* a woman
j whom he named, and who was soon.
i in her turn, arresteci. br.e reiaieu ?ms
! story of the magistrate's medal with
gusto as a first-rate joke. She and
! another woman, having met him in a
music hall, had been asked to supper
by him. Subsequently her friend had
; rilled the judicial gentleman's pocket
I and relieved him of 4,000 francs and
his identification medal. She herself
had only obtained the medal as Iier
share of the plunder, and this she
had given to the man now arrested,
because she thought he would certain|
ly find it to come in useful. He did
so. as a matter offact, having, as has
been ascertained, eaten dinners on
credit at various well-known restaurants,
and even borrowed money
from the landlords in the bargain on
the strength of the magic token.
The examining magistrate, who holds
jurisdiction in a Normandy town, has
been advised of the recovery of his
medal and rather wishes it had not
been found.?-Paris Correspondent to.

President Harriman Found Evidences
of Prosperity On His Travels,
The Crops Are Good.
NEW YORK,. May G.?President K.
H. Harriman. of the Union Pacific and
Southern Pacific roads, who has just j
returned from a tour of inspection of j
those properties, says be found condi- j"
tfons in the West and Southwest j
much better than he thought they |
would be. He felt warranted in or- !
dering more equipment for the Har- i
riman mads than he originally inten- j
ded to order. Regarding Southern j
Pacific. Harriman said that the road j
was now beginning to see daylight in f
the matter of extraordinary expenses, j
He hadn't given much thought to divi- j
dends on Southern Pacific, but iuti- j
mated that once dividends were begun |
they would be continued. Crop condi- j
tions in the West ami Southwest, according
to Mr. Harriman, were much
better than tne government reports
indicated. Of the West as a whole, he
said he thought more conservatism
was being shown there than here,
and that country he believes is in
good shape to look after its own
financial requirements.

s, NEW YORK. May 5.?Cornelius M.
Bliss to-day pave out the following
statement regarding the report that
he will be chosen National Chairman
to succeed Senator Hanna.
In view of the calamity of Mr.
Hanna's death and the illness of Vice
Chairman Payne, it is true that I have,
as an officer of the executive commit
tee of the Republican committee for
12 years consulted with the leading
members of the party. Senators and
others as to the organization of the
Executive committee. Several gentlemen
have been considered for the
chairmanship and other othces. subject.
of course, to the approval and
action of the National committee.
It will be 110 difficulty in definitely j
settling the questions at the proper
time, that is. when the committee j
meets in the convention in Chicago in
June. Up to the present moment,
however, no actual decision has been
made as to chairman and probably
none will bo made until that time.
Pig And Pony.
Here it is: **I am the owner of a
pony and a small black pig. which,
after t he manner of the .country, runs
loose and finds its own food. The
pony is kept stabled at nitfhf, but for
part of t ne day is out grazing and is I
fed with corn every morning near
the dining room window. The corn j
is put in a box which rests on the j
ground. When the pony comes ho is
always accompanied by the pig. who
sits between his fore foot and occasionally
takes a little corn himself.
It he takes too much the pony gives
him a gentle bite, as a reminder not
to be greedy. if he takes too nif
Lo be greedy. The pig steeps against
the stable door (it is not allowed to
go inside), so as to be near its
friend, and when the pony is grazing
i he pig is always just alongside.
When I go out for a drive or a ride
tnd the pony has to wait, friend pig
iics down between his foot until we
start. On returning from the drive
' '.o p!g jump about. making the most
absurd antics to greet bis friend, and
grunts a queer, sharp grunt, looking
for all the world like a fat and j
clumsy old spaniel greeting its mas- i
tor. It then trots oil" to the stable
with its friend. No other pig dare
go near the pony, as he lias a great
dislike for the animals as a whole,
and bites them savagely/'? L,ondon

behind in some regions, although reports
from many centers indicate genera!

Chicago reports some decline in

high prices for material and difficulty 'r
in securing supplies.

decided improvement. Jobbers report
good fall orders, and some Increase

The i 11 tl u x of exposition visitors to

Crop news from the Northwdst is
satisfactory. While the seeding has "
