111. (.ill wiin 11l Inks
The following, taken from a late copy of the Seattle Star,points to a fact of on ly too common ooeurence but lacks a lot of adorning the story: "Oh, if I don't take a drink occasion ally with the boys they will think I am not a good fellow." Of course these words were said by some young fellow around town and contain nothing startling. Of course they were not. They were .used by a young girl in Chicago. She was a handsome, finely dressed and belonged to a good family. And she is only a type! Recently it was discovered by officers of the law (who are always the Jast to discover what is generally known) that cocktails and iptrltoul liquors were bo ing freely dispensed from seda foun tains which the smart set of Chicago frequented. Young women took their •'high balls" along with young men. Only a wink was needed. And one who is not blind has seen in cafes and restaurants in the larger cities young women with flushed cheek and dulled eyes, raising strained voices, and ibetraying in many wnys the use of stimulanls. And he would be told these .young women belonged to highly repect able society. Why thus growing habit? The young women fear they may not lie considered ''good fellows." They think if they do not lake a social drink with their gentlemen friends they will not be considered up-to-date. A mistake! A man who drinks with a foolish girls does not respect her. Behind her back lie will laugh at her. He does not care to marry such a girl. The girl who drinks intoxicants in the company of men loses her sense of propriety anil fitness. She lets down the bars of maidenly reserve. She sur renders some of her girlhood, some of ,her modesty, and— If she persists and the habit is form ed, something worse will surely befall ,her. The Dooert of Sahara North of the mountains of tho MiooD, in Abyssinia, lies the great Desert of Sahara, stretchiug 800 miles in width from its southern margin, and 1000 in length between the Atlantic and Rw\ Sea. It is a hideous, barren waste, pro longed eastward into the Atlantic for Miiles, in the form of sandbanks, and in terrupted to the west only by a few oa pe3 and the valley of the Nile. This desert is alternately scorched by heat and pinched by cold. The wnd blows from tho east nine months of the year, and at the equinoxes it rushes a perfect hurricane, driving the sand in .clouds before it, producing night at mid-day, and overwhelming caravans pt men and animals in common destruc tion. Then the sand is piled up in waves ever varying with the blast; even the atmosphere is of sand. Tlip desolation of this dreary waste, boundless to the eye as the ocean, is territic and sublime—the dry, heated air is like a red vapor: ths setting sun seems to be a volcanic lire, and at times lhe burning wind of the desert is the blast of death. There are many salt Jakes to the north, and even the springs are of brine; tniek incrustations of da* zling salt cover the ground, and the particles carried aloft by whirlwinds, Hash in the sun like diamonds. Sand is not the only character of the desert; tracks of gravel and low bare rocks oc cur at times not less barren and dreary. On these interminable sands and rocks, no animal, np insect breaks the dread silence; not a tree, uot a shrub is to be seen iv this laud without a shadow. In the glare of the noon, the air quivers with the heat reflected fr.om the red isacd, and in the night it js chilled iv a clear sky sparkling under a host of stars. Strangely but beautifully con trasted with these solitudes, is the nar row valley of the Nile, threading the desert for 1000 miles in emerald green, with its blue waters foaming in rapids among wild rocks, or quietly spreading in a calm stream amidst lields of corn and the august monuments of }>ast ages. Hi- < lili !». ii (uiiii Home to Hoost The following, taken from a re cent Texas paper, not only hits the man who wants office and has not been con sistent, but that other largo class that send to Chicago and Seattle for its sup plies and yet expect tho community in which they live to allow them to earn the money with which they pay for them. "For several years one Lee Blan chette has been county clerk of Jeffer son county, and during all of that time he has ignored the printing offices in his home town and had tho hulk of his blanks and other county printing done '. in St. Louis. Recently Mr. Blanchetto " announced that he would be a candi date for comptroller at the .. next state ejection and now the newspapers of LEAVENWORTH ECHO. Texas are confronting him with his record. They suggest that inumnoh as he turned down the claim of Texas labor in favor of St. Louis labor, that he get his votes among tho St Louis la borers. The labor vote of his home town and county is very stri-ng, and it is questionable if Mr. Blanehette can go to the state convention with the dateglr tion of his own county behind him". —Merkel Mail. 1111 it i him si: siiws The following transcript of the busi ness transacted in the Court House for the past week is furnished this paper by John A.
