It is surprising what a change has

SHORT NEWS STORIES.
Counselor O'Brien's Legal Examination.
" Major McKinley " as a Punter.
They Filled the Hole.
Counselor Bill Brien tells the follow-'
ing story of how lie passed his examina
tion as connselor at law and obtained
his license: "1 bad my papers filled out
and walked over to Judge Joe C. Gill
to puss my examination and have my
papers signed. It was in the forenoon,
and Judge Gill, who was an ardent and
successful turfman, bad Orphan Girl in
training for tbo Maxwell House stakes,
to be run at Nashville, and Brakenmn,
who was thought to have a pretty good
chance of winning the Merchants'
stakes at St. Louis, both races being set
down for the same day.
"I walked into his office with my pa
pers in my hand, and looking up pleas
antly the judgo greeted me as follows:
" 'Good morning, William. I under
stand yon want to pass your examina
tion and be a lawyer?'
" 'Yes, sir, that's what I'm here for
this morning. '
"'Were you out at the track this
morning to see the horses taking their
" 'Did yon see that Kentucky crack,
Lelox, and my mare Orphan Girl work?'
" 'Yes, sir. They both went a mile,
and you know the track was a bit slow.
Orphan Girl finished up strong and
swinging all through the last furlong in
0:47, and Lelox was all out and had the
boy kicking him in 0:47 ) 4 - '
" 'I reckon my mare has a pretty
good chance for the Maxwell?'
" 'It looks like a certainty. Lelox is
all she has to beat, and he's as good as
done already. '
"'What kind of a plan would it be
to send Alcock to St. Louis with Brake
man for the Merchants' stakes?' ,
" 'The horse is good now, and he has
nothing to beat over there. Land him
in St. Louis all right, and it's as good
as a walkover. '
" 'I think I'll send him. Let me see
—ah, I thought I was forgetting some
thing. We forgot all about the exam
ination. Hand me your papers, Wil
liam, and see me sign them. ' ''
Counselor Bill walked out with his
duly attested license, and a short time
later Judge Gill won the Maxwell
House stakes and the Merchants' stakes
with Orphan Girl and Brakeman.—New
Moving " Major McKinley."
As a punter Major McKinley would
shine on any college football team in
the country. The " major' ' butted a full
grown man over a wire fence the other
day. Having thus finished the game,
the sportive buffalo bull walked demure
ly into a box car and started for his
former home at Newport, N.H.

park two years ago by the Austin Cor
|,ji t estate was being shipped back to
,j )e reserve. The city grew weary of the
animals and induced the estate to take
t jj em a way.
Five hours were expended
loading S!l buffaloes iuto six cars.
Major McKinley, the boss of the herd,
balked at the outset, and Morrison said
he would lead the big beast. Instead
the "major" led Morrison to the fence
and punted him through the wires,
bruising him badly in several places.
Tbo keeper remained on the other side
of the fence.—New Y'ork Journal,

When the pedestal of the statno of
Blair which Missouri has presented to
Statuary hall was standing in that,
] la n the other day awaiting its bronze
figure, some one noticed that iu tho oeu
ter of tho stone block was a small,
square bolo. Tho Missouri delegation
was presout to watch the placing of the
statue, and one of the congressmen,
fishing through his pockets, found a
cent. He pot the coin in the square
hole, and also deposited a bit of paper
with his antograph.
The example was contagious. Every
membor of tbe delegation put in a cent
aud Ids name, some curious bystanders
did likewise, and by the time that the
statue was plaoed in position there was
almost enough copper in tbe pedestal to
sheathe a ship. —Washington Post.
