Thk latest from Canton is that the
connection of the namo of Mr. Chas. G.
Dawes with the Private Secretaryship
was entirely unwarranted, that Mr.
Dawes has no desire for the position,
knowing which tho President would
certainly not tender it to him. Tho
cabinet slates chango day by day with
kaleidoscopic rapidity and the public
is growing heartily tired of tho efforts
of imaginative correspondents to cre
ate an official household for Mr. McKin
ley. When tho President aunounccs
his appointments it will be time
enough to publish the biographical
A LIBERAL-MINDED LOSER.
Uli Kxperlonco Wits Expenslvo and Ho
Didn't Have the Fan.
"What is that big book in tho cor
ner?" said tho youDg man who had
called at young Mr. Easylad's apart
ments, says tho Detroit Freo Press.
"That's my scrap book."
"Full of pictures and poetry and
stuff, I suppose?"
"No. Souvenirs. Take alook into it."
Lifting tho ponderous volume to to
table the Itor opened it and ex
claimed: "Why, this looks like a collec
tion of lottery tickets."
"That shows you nctcr played tho
laces. They're tickets that the book
makers gai e me in exchange for a lib
eral percentage of my income. They're
certificates of stock in enterprises that
never declared u dividend. They're re
ceipts for a liberal fee in a long course
of tuition in the school of experience."
"Most people tear up things like
these, do they not?"
"yes. But I sacd them. I wanted
them to remind me of the good times I
paid for and nei or had. They represent
experiences that belong to the poetic
pact nnd vt hich vt ill never be l epeated."
"You mean that you are going to stay
nwav from the race track hereafter?"
"That shows your food sense. It
costs a lot of money in the end."
"I don't begi udge the money so much.
It wasn't my cupidif y that lebcllcd. It
-was my pride."
CLEVER SEA DOC.
This Cnnlne Chew Tobacco nnd ISloua
Out a Tilatcli.
"Grip" is the name giveatoarcmark
nblc dog that follows the fortunes of
the Neptune liner Ohio, on account
of the tenacious hold of life he has
shovn, ho hawng fallen from the ship
into mid-oeeun no less than three times,
says tho New York Journal. He is a
cross betvt een a Bedlington and a Skye
terrier, and does many things that
other dogs do not do.
He will eat raw potatoes racnously,
hut will not. touch, meat. The sailors
.have taught him to chew tobacco, and
lie has developed a taste for whisky
and "water, under the influenceof which
lie docs many foolish things and shows
a bad temper.
lie will blow out lighted matches.
lie has one trick of standing on his
.Iiiud legs and by a little twist throwing
into the air end thence into his mouth
any article placed on his nose.
His greatest accomplishment is to
select at w ord of command a gi en coin
out of a collection composed of a half
penny, penny, sixpence, shilling and
Iialf-crown, which are laid on the floor
of the captain's cabin. Grip be
ing pent below, with the command:
"Bring me the shilling," or whatever it
may be that is asked for.
When a dinner is given at Windsor or
Buckingham palaco fish to a huge out
Jay of money is ordered, but for ordi
nary family dinner three kinds of fish
are put on the table, whiting being al
most imariably one of them. A sirloin
of beef is cooked etcry day and put on
the sideboard cold for luncheon. Her

bo incomparable, ii kept in tho cellar
of St. James' palace and is sent in
basl.etfuls of three dozen to wherever

When t!in Ilrsirt JtcaU.
Nature takes the time when one is
lying down to give the heart rest, and
that oigan consequently makes ten
strokes less a minute than when ono is
in an upright posture. Multiply that
by CO minutes, and it is COO strokes.
Therefore, in eight hours spentin lying
clown the heart is sated nearly 5,000
strokes, and, as tho heart pumps six
ounces of bloo-1 with each stroke, itlifts
80,000 ounces less of blood in a night of
eight hours spent in bed than when ono
is in an upright position. As the blood
flows so much more slowly through the
veins when one is lying down, one must
supply with extra covering the warmth
usually furnished by circulation.

Tho Discovery Saved His Life-
Mr. G. Cailouette, Druggist, Beavers

Discovery I owe my life. Was taken
with La "Grippe and tried all the physi
cians for miles about, but of no avail
and was given up and told I could not
live. Having Dr. King's Now Discov
ery in my store I sent for a bottlo and
began its use and from the first dose
began to get better, and after using
three bottles was up and about again.
It is worth its weight in gold. We
wont keep store or house without it."

New Ease Ball League.
At a meeting of base ball managers
which will be held in this city next
Monday there will be completed tho
permanent organization of a uiinor
league of clubs of the smaller Ohio
cities. Thu work of getting the
League on it, feet has been going on
for several mouths, but was withheld
from publication in order to avoid the
antagonism of "Knockers" who pre
vented the same project being brought
to a successful conclusion last summer.
Tho league is now a sine go. It will
be composed of four clubs under sanc
tion of tho National Association. Ma
rietta, Zanesvillo and Cambiidgo are
in it for keeps and will control the
fourth franchise, which will go to
Canal Dover, New Philadelphia or
Parkersburg. Tho cchedrlo as ar
ranged provides for three Leaguo
games at home and three abroad each
Tho salary limit will be held down
to a reasonable figure, and with strict
economy of management and anything
like good weather there would seem to
be little doubt of financial success. In
all probability the Marietta nine will
be managed by a gentleman of well
known reputation in baseball circles,
who at present resides in a neighbor
ing town. It is intended to open the
season May 15th and close Sept. 15th.

WONDERFUL FULFILMENT OF NANSEN'S
McClure's Magazine for December.
Nearly everything Nansen predicted
about his journey has coma true. Ho
said ho expected to cross tho unknown
polar area, and ho has dono it. Ho
foretold exactly tho general direction
in which his ship would drift while
fast in the ice, but it is not certain
that ho correctly assigned tho cause of
this drift .... Nansen invented tho
model of tho "Fram," making her hull
round and slippery like an eel, with no
corners or sharp edges for tho ico to
scizo upon. Sho is the strongest vessel
ever used in Arctic exploration. Ho
said that pressure would simply lift
her on tho ice, and so her bottom, near
tho keel, was made almost flat, In order
that sho might not capsizo whilo on
tho ico surface; and her screw and
rudder wcro also ingeniously protected.
Tho many experts who said her design
would not save tho "Fram" from in
stant destruction wore mistaken ; for
sho mot theso resistless ico pressures,
and they merely lifted her out of her
cradlo and sho rested safely on the sur
face. Nansen said that, owing to tho prob
able predominance of water In the far
north, ho expected to find thero higher
temperatures than along tho north
coast of Asia. This remarkable predic
tion has been fulfilled. Tho lowest
temperature observed on tho "Fram"
was Oljf deg. Fahrenheit, whilo farth
or south, in tho Kara Sea, 03 deg., and
at the mouth of tho Lena Biver 04
deg. have been registered.
A CHRISTMAS LEGEND IN BELGIUM.
The children of Belgium have a
charming Christmas legend about Santa
Claus's Pony. They always place their
their wooden sabots on tho window
ledge, stuffed full of oats, hay, and
fodder for tho "dear Christmas pony."
In the early morning thoy run on tip
toe to look ; and behold 1 the hay is all
gone, and tho shoes arc brimming over
with toys and sweetmeats ! Then the
children clap their hands with glee,
and wisli they could only have waked
in time to see the pony munching his
oats. That would have been such fun!
