Ethiealh' speaking, the sheep men have as much right to the land ! as the cattlemen. I JOLLIED THE WRONG MAN. Jim Corbett Thrashed Three Soldiers Who. Were Impudent. New 'York, August 6. When three Willett Point soldiers came to their senses on the roadway near Bay Side' and found the card of James J. Corbett pinned on each of their coats they realized that they had been 'up against the real thing." Corbett lives in retirement on a small farm in Bay Side and spends much of his time in his garden. Yesterday lie was coming from the further end of the farm and was driving along the road clad in blue jeans overalls and an old fanner's hat. He noticed three soldiers com ing toward him but paid no atten tion to thp. When the soldier came up toho supposed farmer they made insiing remarks about him. Corbett overheard the re marks, tied his horse to a tree on the roadside and went up the road after the soldiers. He overtook them before they had gone far and asked .them Avhy thoy had used such language to him. For answer, one of them struck Corbett in the face. Corbett squared oft". The fight as brief. . Corbett knocked the soldier down with one blow, then the otl .er. started in to "do" the pugilist. He struck but with his l-fcht and a second and then t4ee Aird soldier measured his length Jk the road- 5 way. Then Gorbett binned one of his cards on each otheir coats and went away. Post.

An English popular journal is responsible for the following gem: "Inrthe public schools of some cities measures are taken, by presumably competent olhcials, to test the children's eyesight upon the assnmp- ition often too well founded that the parents are not sufficiently watchful in that important partic ular. A little boy came home one da, soon after the term had com menced, with the following note signed by the principal: "Mr. Green Dear Sir: It becomes mv duty to inform you that our son shows decided indications of astig matism, and his case is one that should be attended to without delaj'." The father sent his answer the next day: Mr. KershawDear Sir: Whip it out of him. Youra truly John Green.' n scott admits possible defeat;. Local Issues May Give Next House to the Democrats. New York, August 16. Senator N. B. Scott of West' Virginia was a caller todaj at republican congres sional headquarters, where he held a consultation with Chairman Bab--' cock and Secretary Overstreer. . Their conference related to the gen eral condition of the congressional campaign and in particular to th& outlook in -West Virginia. Afterward Senator Scott said tua: Mail and Express reporter: '"I am not one of those who regard the i&t publican prospect of retaining con trol of the next house of represen tatives as certain. I am inclined to? be a pessimist on the subject lo calise there is a prevalent spkit of over-confidence. Unless we ran shake off this apathy, the party' will be in danger of losing its ma jority in the lower branch of con gress. " If thd campaign should be fought on National issues alone we would '' have the democratic part' beatem to a standstill They can not give us battle onlfthe tariff or on, the 4 trusts, or on the Philippine., OF.po-- any other issue that has Vesi sugu g--tod. - Our real peril Hvis-iiaUdeafc conditions, that vary rln severs!

There are other local troubles in Pennsylvania, ia Wisconsin, in 3Iichigai. and . elsewhere." 9 ii r . OUR BILLION-DOLLAR GOVERNMENT! . Onlooker. One billion a year! A fat, and! rotund figure when one reflects that with a population of 9,000,000 Mr. Monroe ran the Government for eight and a half annual millions. . The stark Jackson, with a census ! of 13,000,000, conducted affairs with an outlay of thirteen early mil lions of moneys. We were a world's menace; and forced France to pay over sundry reluctant bags of gold . and acknowledge her fault in the claim of "Once a subject, always at subject," at the muzzle of the gnn Mr. Van Buren transacted the peo- ple's business at an aggregate an nual cost of $15,000,000 about a- dollarahead for population. In. Mr. Buchanan's last year, the yeat- of 1860, the whole figure of Govern ment expenditures fell heW zzz 000,000. As late as 1890, it was half a billion a year, and a Rpnnhlir, House was swept down with fh warcryof "A billion-dollar Con gress!" Now it is a two-billion dollan congress; yet folk seem calm..
