Kx-Governor Fletcher, of Missouri, formed the center of a little group of congressmen tho other day who were discussing old times. "When I was a boy," lie said, "I lived among the pioneers in Missouri They were a fine class of people; all in ill, the best people I ever knew, They drove back the Indians and made bear and dear their meat, lis the saying goes. It was before .the days of the school master. Occasionally we had a three months' subscription scliool, but tho master was employed more for his physical qualifications to discipline the big boys than for his learning. It was before the days of baseball and football, and the sport that stood at the head of the list was a 'gander pulling.' The men met," continued the governor, "at some suitable cross-roads store, where 18 cents per gallon corn whisky was dis pensed, and they pooled in $1 each, say twenty or twenty-live of them. That was a big purse In those 'Jays. Then they got the oldest and toughest gander that toamcd that circuit. The feathers were carefully plucked from his neck, and the neck was covered with grease and soap. After these preliminaries, Mr. Gander was se curely tied to a swinging limb of a tree, head hanging downward. This done, the men would mount their horses, a circle was drawn, the master of ceremonies took his place in the center of the ring, whip in hand, and kept every horse on a lively run as the riders tried to catch the gander's neck. Tlie man who succeeded In pulling off the gander's neck raked In the pot. If tie held on until he was pulled oil his horse, it counted for tlie gander, and the rider was out. It was a little tough on the fowl, but as a feat of strength and horsemanship it was worth seeing, and the knights of old never put lance in rest or rode in a tournament to greater applause among tlie spectators than was showered upon them by the throng at a gander pulling. I was once an eye witness of this strange snort. Of course, it wound up with a dance, and the hero who pulled off the gander's head danced witli the prettiest girl "Pretty girls? Your young ladies of today wouldn't have been In with those rosy-cheeked lassies. All the candidates for ofllco were there, electioneering. They didn't make any speeches in those days. They set 'em up and mixed about and talked with the boys. Well, all that old set is gone now. Their descendants are more learned, and have modern man tiers, . habits and amusements, but they are not better in any sense than the sturdy old pioneers, their ances tors." She Will Die an Old Maid.

Zadklel, in his "Voice of the Stars," gives tlie following forecasts for Sep tember, 1894: Mars becomes stationary In Taurus 5 degrees 4 minutes, and this Is tlie ruling sign of Ireland, we may look j for stirring events in Erin, and it will be well for the sister isle if riot, outrage aud bloodshed be not wit nessed as the month advances, for not alone does Mars afflict Ireland, but Uranus also also by opposition to her ruling sign. The ensuing few weeks will be injurious to tjie fruits of tlie earth and to cattle. About tlie mid dle of this month we shall hear of a sharp shock of earthquake In either Asia Minor or the Grecian Archipel ago. Jupiter's progress through the llrst term of Cancer Is benellcial to Scotland, and to some extent to Man Chester also. The public health will be far from good; diarrhoea, throat affections and enteric fever will be very prevalent among children and young persons; and accidents will be unusually numerous. Let all at whose birth tlie either the sun or moon held the 0th degree of Taurus, or the 23d of Libra, beware of running into any kind of danger. Those who had cither the sun or moon in the 3d to 5th degree of Cancer will benellt by the position of Jupiter. The 13tli and 32d inst. are favorable birth-day until versaiies; the 20th is unfavorable for mercurial individuals. The rotal eclipse of the sun, on the 2!)th inst. Invisible here, will prove unfortunate for the citizens of Cape Colony and Madagascar, where disputes and prob ably fighting will soon take place As tlie month closes, affairs generally improve in Great Britain, except tlie revenue, which still declines. The king of Portugal suffers through Saturn afflicting the place of the moon at his birth. Raphael's Prophetic Messenger has the following: The new moon occurs on the 30th ult., shortly after 8 in the p. in., when the end ot Aries will be rising, and Mars will be in tlie ascendant, Satur will be exactly setting, and Uranus will occupy the 7th house In Scorpio. The oriental position of Mars denotes much excitement In the land; many disasters,' great fires and strange occurrences, probably earthquakes or tidal disturbances. The position of Saturn is very evil, and threatens colliery disasters, grievous news from abroad, and danger of war. Three planets in Virgo in tlie Oth threaten an epidemic of diarrhoea or cholera, md much sickness. In navigation serious collisions and wrecks will occur. On the whole, we may expect' month full of exciting incidents and great alarming occurrences. The stationary position of Mars in the sign Taurus is very unfavorable for Ireland, and crime and outrage will increase much; shocks of earth quake will also occur in the northern counties. Jupiter in Cancer will ben efit Holland, Scotland, New York and other places ruled by that sign, but Saturn in Libra will affect England iidversely, causing a falling of trade, crime, distress and poverty. The position of Mranus is unfavorable for Morocco and other countries in the north of Africa. The daily admonitions for Septenv ber are thus given: 1. Sell before 1 p. m. 2.

Harpoon. 1 was once the proud owner and perietrator of a great cosmopolitan weekly the Lampasas Dispatch and like every other young and ambitious to untax them, the duty on each is reduced about one-half. In the following table a comparison is made of the ad valorum rates of the McKinley law on some important necessaries of life with those of the Senate bill on the same articles, and tlie percentage or reduction appears in the last column : Mt liiiikji Svnnta fcr cent oj Jrticltt. bill.

I had considerable trouble with all the reli gious denominations, but managed to keep the full membership of some one of the local churches on my books. My next trouble arose with the ad vertisers, and desiring to live at peaco with God and all mankind, I agreed to "trade out" every advertisement lr the paper. Before the first twelve months were out my advertising "orders" were used like street car tickets at all the stores, and were quoted according to their market value. At last the patent medicine mam came along and I secured 1000 "Edito rial Puff" cigars and twelve dozen quarts of "Tulu Rock and Itye. These cigars were natural curiosities. I held an autopsy over one and found nearly every ingredient known to thcr scientific world under Its Early York; wrapper. My foreman, Mr. Sam Doty, drank a bottle of the Rock and Ryo on the ninth day of August, and waa too drunk to assist in getting out a Christmas edition. I next secured, through N. W.
