it isn't at all necessary to admit
Polygamic Roberts to a seat as
a preliminary to excluding him
—not only with bis own cor
roborative opinion, but with an
ample array of precedents, says
the Pioneer Press. The house
has always had, and on several

EAST HAMPTON,Mass., Nov. 34,1899.
THOS. B. HUHLY, Edit.ii- aud Publisher of
the .Bowbells Tribune:
Dear Sir —Through the kindness and
courtesy of my friend of yor.r omhryo ci'cy,
A. \\. Movius, 1 received the jiivt numbar of
yonr pai.'or, and you aud your subscriber*!
can honestly feel a jupt pride in its encr!il
make-up. It is my honest opinion that for
enterprise and JMBU there, is not a country
or place on this footstool where there is
much push and energy cUfplayed as there i
by the editors aud publishers of the jjreiit
northwest. Why, bless my Jifn, Bow
bells, for in,stance, thnt hn.« b-.-en soUhsd
only two years, and you pionco.-* of t-h
"art preservative" have given the scttk-rr
a better am nore up-lo-date paper than
they liave in towns in old
that have been settled for tv.o hundred
years and wit-a a population of from three
to five thousand inhabitants. The denizens
of these eastern towns are slower than God's
wrath why they are slower than pond water
as compared to the people ,f the far
There is a city this county of 18,0*10 in
habitants and it u an aetunl fact that, inside
of it3 corporate limits there are t.v.v vil
lages within four miles of the court- house
tliat are farther west- to all intents and pur
poses than any place thnt you can ti-ul be
tween here aud the Paciiiy coast nuJ wliose
inhabitants are jogging filon# in the same
old rut3 that they wore ixt.y yeavs aco
and they actually believe that your people
of t^»B far west are outright )rfaiiiuin.
There is a weekly paper printed in this
ttwn, that has been published 112 years in, .',
.theise down-eastcrs uiii it tile liampsi.iie
County Bible. Some of its readers in the
hill towns think that you people of the
-northwest.are a benighted lot of heat hens.
Why, there is more push aud energy in the
towns
than
of the northwest of MO inhabitants
in towns here of 5,000 inhabitants.
They are fast becoming back nuinbars.
My old friend Movius can tell you that
-I have been all over the west and have lived
/in that section for twonty-five years.

LION LOOSE

Cnrpo of Poultry.
CumborlaBd (Md.) Special to New
York Journal: Terrifying growls is
sued from an express ear of a train
that passed through bore the otb-r day
bound for Philadelphia. A lion was in
possession, freod from his cage, slaugh
tering chickens by wholesale. Con
ductor and brakeinon kept as far away
as their duties vould permit Half a
dozon Hr.s- ril-oc'V: men were gathered
in the caboose, plootuily wondering
what they could do to restore the mon
ster to cuniineRiuut. V»*hun the train
inoupr-d here for writer they ware at
their wit's or.d. Many of the inhabit
ants Hooked to the station to listen, at
a safe (iistiii.ee, to the pandemonium
that raged in the express car. There
was a eoTi-inuous fluttering and
screaming— the hysterical distress cf

the mutilated bodies of birds he had
seized without devouring them. The
survivors flew hither and thither fran
tically. sometimes hitting the roof and
dropping back again to the floor. None
of those responsible for the lion's safe
keeping could imagine how he had
broken from his cage, but it. was easy
to conceive bo had bfen maddened by
the heat and darkness and jolting of
railway traveling, aggravated as it
must have been by the sound and smell
of life in the crates all about him. It
was agreed that the only thing to do
was to continue the journey to Phila
delphia with all possible speed, and
there take steps at leisure to either
capture cr kill the bloodthirsty animal.
And so the train rumbled on with the
lion in possession.
Tanirht His DOR to Par.c.
Minneapolis Journal: M. B. Scott, a
veterinary surgeon of Faribault, S. D..
has a novelty in the shape of a wonder
ful pacing dog. So far as is known,
this is the only instance on record of a
pacing dog, though a trotting dog is
not unheard of, and a man named Har
ry Ketcham, a Canadian, once owned a
trotter whom, he called "Doc." This
dog, whJcli was a pointer, he exhibited
at race-tracks and fairs all over the
country. He was said to have made
$10,000 out of the animal. Dr. Scott's
dog will race against either a horse or a
bicycle, and seems to enjoy it, though
he evidently regards it as a very seri
ous matter. Gypsy, a3 the doctor calls
him, can make very good time, and
Dr. Scott has speeded mm from a
standing start to make a quarter of a
mile in forty-live seconds, and the first
eighth in twenty seconds. When he
was teaching him to pace, Dr. Scott put
small string hobbles on him in order
to. prevent him fr«m breaking. Gypsy
paced a little before the doctor bought
him, though so little as to be of no
consequence but his new master
thought he saw possibilities of the dog
doing better, a?,il began a course of
careful and systematic training, until
he obtained the present result. The
do?, is a pare blooded St. Bernard anu
weighs 140 pounds, is three feet high,
measures six feet from the tip of his
bushy tail to the end of his handsome
ncse and is about 4 years old. Ho
races alone, without a driver, and, be
sides being a very fine animal, is a real
curiosity.
