Delegate From South Carolina Sug- j
ii>' gests to Delegate From North
S Carolina a Reason For the Monotony
of the Convention
at Chicago.
p
5 CHICAGO. June 22.?The man who
wants '^something doing" when he Is
away from home is having a hard
time at the convention. From the
mil standpoint of the onlooker there has.
indeed, been an absence of action
in the progress of events. A dele- I
gate from South Carolina suggested I
a reason for this when he happened j
to meet a delegate from North Cnro"
lina. Said the latter:
/ "Quiet convention, ain't it'.'"
S; >"V"ep," was the reply, "opened with
prayer by a man named Frost," and
then the thermometer feil several de- j
S. grees lower and the gentlemen from i
| . the Carolina? saw to it that history j
repeated itself and ordered two j
!?: straight, without chasers.
Rfc' Pittsburger Starts Somsthir.g.
pin': " In the center of the Moorish roori
;.i/- in the Auditorium Annex, is a big
K,'. fountain, surrbunded by a large basin,
i/,r. filled with limpid water. The shower
|:p' :V of water falling'with a tinkling sound
into the basin tenths to give an air of
v coolness to the room. Alexander P.
g Moore, of Pittsburg, utilized- ihk;
pool to play a prank last night. Since
' Moore has been here he has been
sturdily adhered to by a casual ace
quaintance, who refuses to be shaken
r off. Whenever Mcore sits down in
I the Moorish room this man Is sure
. , to turn up and join the party. Past
night Moore called a bellboy ami said:
1 *" *1-, nt- m'm t hpf

always jumps on my neck as soon as .
& I pet in here?"
? The boy said he had.
"Well," said Moore. "I am going to
leave details to you, but when I come '
in to-night I am going to sit right '
down on the edge of that basin. If !
Ji you land that chap in the pool I'll
give you $10, and as an evidence of 1
good faith here is $5 on account."
The boy grinned and went off.
Soon after the man in question strayiV;
ed in, and. seeing Moore seated by the
basin, joined him and sat down. A
few moments later the boy passed
behind and dexterously upset the
1 chair, occupant and all. into the fountain.
At once there was a shout.
The bellboy promptly jumped in and
extricated the man from his position,
took him off to his room and helped
Him rlrv r?ff and clean un. When the
. boy came back Moore gave him an
elephantine wink and handed over $5
f. more. The boy waved it aside and
said gleefully:
"Say, you don't owe me a cent. I
am a winner. I had $10 worth of fun
n . out of that, and besides, he gave me 10
f.? cents for helping him clean up." And
the boy would not take the money,
either.

' Seth Suilock Protests.
Captain Seth Bullock, who was the
: f first sheriff of Deadwood, and is now '
chief of the Blael\ Mills Rangers,
whose duty it is to protect the forest
reserve, thinks the convention is slow,
and says the New Yorkers are clams.
Bullock can ride fast and shoot
J; '. straight, and he came here expecting
- to see his friend "Teddy," whom he
knows intimately, nominated in a
whirlwind of enthusiasm.
"You New York fellows," he said
to a group from that State, "are a
set of clams. We have got mosquitoes
out in Deadvvood that would
zj . create more enthusiasm than your entire
delegation. No bands, no whoops,
; no cheers, and only a few liand-claps.
"Why, the convention was as cold
as Alaska to-day, and I don't like it.
I saw hardly a smile on the New York
delegation the whole time of the proceedings,
and when Mr. Root mention"
ed Roosevelt's name at the end of his
speech it was our fellows from the
\itoe+ tliat madfi thp nnicp,"
||a Beer at Champagne Prices.
Promptly on the opening of the
|B convention the barkeepers in the hotel
Hk cafes pushed up prices anil began
^ charging 20 cents for a pony for beer?
jjjpggjplmna a weazened pony it was, at that.
"It's the fu'st time, sah," said an
HTold-timer from the South, "that I ever
saw a convention where beer and
Mfchampagne were on an equal footing
Kap to price."

night at die meeting a comraunica- 1 L
tion from Mr. Barron was heard, in ;
which he signified his willingness to .
serve.
- He further stated in ids letter i.hn: :<
he had talked to Governor White
about the new club and i!)'.' Governor
had recommended its reorganization , ^
as a commendable piece of work. I ^
The Six-Foot club of Wheeling met ! /,
informally last night in the law office | j1;
of C. K. Morris." S. M. Chase acted as j
President and C. 13. Morris as tempo- : nt
porary chairman. The report of the w
committee which had been appoint- Sf
ed to wait on Mr. Barton was heard. ai
The committee on soliciting reported
that they had seen many men and rl
all reported their willingness to join C1
the club as soon as it was fully organ- p
ized. it,
It was moved and seconded that in
the next meeting be held on Tuesday w
evening at 7:30. June 2Sth, at the w
city building, at such place therein ^
as may be specified later. ^
Homer Heclcer, who will have a]
charge of the (lurm corps, reported w
rliat he had seen several musicians if
in this city and that in a short time lie h:
would have an excellent organization ni
to head the club. This meeting last | tc
night was the third that lias been | f(
held since the question of reorganiza- j
Lion of the club was first broached, j
All the meetings have been held J gj
in the law office of Captain Morris at p,

been found that there is not sufficient tl
room to accommodate the growing
membershin. At the next meeting
officers will be elected and many new

possible the reorganization will be sj
Cully completed. "All six-foot Republi- si
cans will be urged to enter the club, w
is the promoters of the organization b
are anxious to be ready for public
demonstration by the time of the S]
State nominating convention on the
12th of July. Many prominent poli- ^

SERIOUS TROUBLE i s"
In a Marshall County Home.
f<
MOUXDSVILLE, June 21.?V. G. f
Moore, a prominent farmer who re- tl
sides on Whetstone run south of Fish o
creek, has once again been driven
from home by his wife. Moore yester- v
day appeared before 'Squire Mann *
and complained that his wife threat- ^
ened to shoot him and had on several
? I'lll ltim hv
uucasiims aiicimncu iw mn mux . ^
putting poison in his victuals. 44
A warrant was issued for Mrs. b
Moore and if a constable can be found
to make the arrest Mrs. Moore will
be taken to Moundsville and put tin- ^
der bond to keep the peace. 2
Moore made the same complaint ^
against his wife last summer, but p
she outwitted the constable when lie e
called to make the arrest. She went
to bed and pretended to be sick. The *
constable effected a compromise and
the couple finally forgot the past and
lived in peace, the husband paying j
the costs. p
Mrs. Moore claims that her litis- }
band first met her when she was liv- y
ing in happiness at her home in the e
interior .of Ohio. She says he represented
himself as being a wealthy
farmer from West Virginia, where he ^
owned several farms, and asked her ^
V* i wi dim /I t c-o nnnin torl
iUCll i J llltli. tJUC >T aC3
when she found he only had a small q
cabin on a farm of twenty acres in
Marshall county, and this has been
the cause of all their trouble.

Tlie real name of the hero of "The
Ilded Age" was Eschol Sellers, and
e was an Inventor anil an active pro- i
inter very veil known In the early |
lys of the new west. His father was '
ae of the first locomotive builders In j
le United States, with works at Phil- !
lelphia. Eschol Sellers' and Charles \
udley Warner occupied adjoining i
mixes some years before "The Gilded j
ge" was written. Sellers at that time

eetown, 111., at what was then and is
ill known as Sellers' Landing. He

ard largely used in making paper

sperimenting with the camel back I
lgine. Notwithstanding the fact that !
filers' enterprises were destined all I
? be successful. Charles Dudley War- j
er conceived the idea that he was a i
pical visionary dreamer. lie there- j

ellers for the hero of "The Gilded
go." and Mark Twain used the name,
elieving it to be fictitious. One of
ig first copies of the book happened

t once to Ilartford and enjoined the
ubllcation. A compromise was ef cted
by which the publishers paid
ellers $5,000 for damages and cut. all

it to Cultivate.
This habit of always doing one's best i
iters into the very marrow of one's j
eart and character. It affects one's
earing, one's self possession. The
inn who does everything to a finish
as a feeling of serenity. lie is not
isiJy thrown oil his balance. Tie has
3thing to fear, and he can look the
orld in the face because lie rceis coupons
that lie has not put shoddy into (
ay thing, that he has had nothing
> do with shams and that he lias alnys
done his level best. The sense of
licieney. of being, master of one's
aft, of being equal to any emergency,
te consciousness of possessing the abily
to do with superiority whatever one
odor takes, will give soul satisfaction
hicli a half hearted, slipshod worker
i?vcr knows. J
When a man feels throbbing? within
Ini the power to do what he underlines
as well as it can possibly be done,
:ul all liis faculties say "Amen" to hat
he is doing and give their unqualled
approval to his efforts?this is "
upplncss, this is success. This buoynt
sense of power spurs the faculties
1 their fullest development. It un)lds
the mental, the moral and the
liysicai forces, and this very growth,
le consciousness of an expanding menility
and of a' broadening horizon,
Ives an added satisfaction beyond the
Dwer of words to describe. It is a
?alization of nobility, the divinity of
le mind.?Success. j
A Crooked Spire.
The most curious spire in England is
t Chesterfield, the leaning tower of
ten not boinsr more interesting to | _
glitseers than the queer kink in a rentable
church, which tradition says
as caused by the devil kicking: out as
e passed the spire. The devil had just
arl his hoofs shod by a local bluckQiith,
and his pain was so intense the
Jlfico was shaken out of shape. An- f
ther and wittier legend says the spire
as bowing to a lovely and virtuous
ride. Many noted persons liave in
ears gone visited Rowsley and quaint 'eacock
inn and thence traveled to
hestciTiold to gaze on this freak of
attire, for natural causes are supposed 1
) have bent the spire rather than an (
ritable devil whose lioofs were not hod
to please him.
Imitating Color BlimlncsN.
One can sometimes imitate the efects
of color blindness through over- i
atigue of the eye. Thus Mr. Brett,
he English painter, told the members
f the Royal Astronomical society that
a painting a scarlet geranium, after
rorking at it for a quarter of an hour
he artist will not know that it is
caiiet at all, but will go oil painting
: as if it were black or colorless.
Red," he explained, "is a very irritant
olor to the retina," and lie added that
you can look at green until all is
lue."
