CHAPERON FOR THE SENATOR.

"three rings means that a isenator wants a lift, and that he don't want to have to wait long, either. No matter who or how many may be in the car the elevator man starts for tli sntators floor and takes hini up or down, wherever he wants to go. ThIn he lets the other people off where they want to go.

Queer Mistakes of Visitors Seeing Washington for the First Time. In the spring the tourists' fancy lightly turns to thoughts of Washing ton. The streets of the national capi tal are thronged with tourists-tour isti individually, tourists in groups lnd tourists in excursions. The exc'r slonists may be known by many signs, one of these being the tendency to keep in step, as they move from sight to sight. The capital is the objective of all tourists. They pack the public galleries; they mass in the rotunda. That all come for pleasure is evident, and that many come to learn is made plain by the questions they ask. "Say," said a tourist on the terrace of the capitol, accosting a Washing tonlan, one day this week, "how can I see Mount Vernon?" "By going there." "Going there? Yes, but I want to know ihow I ann see it from here." "You can't. It is 15 miles distant." "Fifteen miles! Why, I thought It was right across the river from Wash Ington." A common delusion appears to be that the president has quarters at the capitol and may be seen there any day, Another delusion is that nobody but the vice president ever occupies the chair of the presiding officer of the senate. Recently the vice presi dent slipped out to his private room for a few moments, calling upon Sen ator McCumber to preside in his ab Mace. A tourist who had entered the gallery after the North Dakotan had taken the gavel was surprised, and audibly exclaimed to his companion; "PFatrbanks don't look a bit like hi. Plictures!" War Veterans In Service. In answer to an inquiry concern ag war service. 15.207 employes, 8.2 per cent. of the total number reported that they were war veterans. Of these 'eterans 8,464 had served in the civil War and 6,743 in the war with Spain. The total number of employes at least 60 years of age is 13,363, and of thlb number 7.768, or 58.1 per cent., are war veterans. Roughly speaking, therefore. among every ten employes it least 60 years of age six are war reterans. In addition to the figures for the tmployes above considered the bulle tin also shows separately certain sta tl~tics for the postmasters, classifying them by sex, age,. period of service, 51 compensation. It also contains seeral diagrams illustrating the dis tribution of the omployes by sex, age, marital condition. character of ap Pobntment, and other details. Amusing Slilo of Senator.

Statistics show that about one-fifth of all the chewers of plug tobacco chew STAR. There's a reason for this enormous and con stantly increasing num ber of STAR chewers, and it's just this- Star Plug has always been manufactured with one sole object in view to give chewers the best chew of-tobacco it is pos sible to produce, yet to sell this STAR chew at a moderate price. More chewers are learning every day that STAR, considered from the standpoint of true merit, has no competitor, and is the one best chew. For a long time there was a prejudice'(which probably still exists) among certain chewers against the use of what is generally termed "Navy Tobacco,"becauseof the impression that all to bacco of that character is too sweet. It is true that some brandsof tobacco, similar in appearance to STAR, are too sweet to please chewers accustomed to the use of tobacco manu factured in thin plugs, but we know that STAR is right in every way. You use tobacco for the pleasure it gives- increase your pleasure by chew ing STAR I In All Stores
