Retaining soldiers of tbe famous
Twentieth Kansas, who have just
reached home from the Philippines,
unanimously agree that one great
thing is lacking In army life. Tbe
American soldiers would be content
were one want satisfied. Tbey want
pie—mother's pie—issued as rations.
But the army quartermaster knows a|
little of pie as a Chinaman. While
otfeer rations come regularly and tol
erably well cooked, these soldiers say
that the great aching void for pie grew
apace, until now some of the boys
would gladly give a month's pay for a
good big pie.
Arthur Philips, who lives at Mul
Tane, Kan., was a private in Company
H. Tenth Pennsylvania regiment, and
Is half-back on the W. and J. football
team of Washington, Pa., came home
recently and was greeted by the towns
people in a unique and fitting manner.
He had previously written home in re
gard to pie. When the neighbors
learned he was nearing home they de
termined to arrange a satisfactory wel
come. Accordingly they baked*a pie
four feet wide and six feet long and
filled it with apple
mince meat aild
everything else that goes to make up
a good pie.
A big reception was held in the opera
house, and the pie laid on a large table
on the stage. No one else was allowed
to eat the pie, and, be it said to the
6oldier's credit, he devoured the pie
during the night, and actually called
for more. This should be a warning to
friends who desire to please heroes
of the Philippine campaign.—Leslie's

The manager thought him fit for the

"Bedad!" he replied, "never moind the

"Yes, yes," said the manager wearily,

The readers of this paper will be pleased to
learn that there is at least one dreaded disease
that science has been able to cure in all its
stages, and that is Catarrh. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is the only positive cure now known to the
medical fraterni y. Catarrh being a constltu
tional disease, requires a constitutional treat
ment. Hall's Catarrh Cure is taken internally,
acting directly upon the blood and mucous sur
faces of the system, thereby destroying the
foundation of the disease, and giving the patient
strength by building up the constitution and
assisting nature in doing its work. The pro
prietors have so much faith in its curative
powers that tbey offer One Hundred Dollars for
any case that it falls to cure. Send for list of

How a Bis Georgia Politician Unwit
tingly Saved His Own Iilfe.
Don Bain gave me a new Toombs
story recently, says the Atlanta Con
stitution. I call it new because it haa
never been printed. One night, when
the legislature was in session, the old
Markham house was crowded witii
statesmen and loungers. Gen. Toombs
was there. Something had gone wrong
at the capitol and he was mad. As
usual, he took no pains to conceal his
sentiments. When Bain entered the
hotel he found the general talking ex
citedly with a crowd around him.
Toombs objected to something said or
done in the legislature and proceeded
to "cuss out" the whole body. The
eloquent talker was perfectly reckless.
He threw off brilliant epigrams, epi
thets and outbursts of profanity until
he almost equaled a volcano in the
force, fury and fire of his eruptions.
The loungers listened and laughed.
They ehjoyed it tremendously and
looked at the politicians to see how
they stood it. Among thcoe present
was a member from a middle Georgia
county. He was a giant in stature,
tall, broadshouldered and muscular.
He was not in a gocd humor and
Toombs irritated him. Finally he re
sented the general's ren:arks. "I'll be
if I stand your talk any longer,"
he saiv. "You are too personal, and if
you repeat your statement i'il hit you!''
This interested the crowd. The legis
lator towered over everybody, ready
to strike the general. Toombs, in his
fearless way, was about to say some
thing when several of his friends gent
ly drew him into the elevator and took
him to his room. "I vas just about to
hit him," remarked the legislator. Just
then a very small, delicate-loolcing
man, with a pale face and mild blue
eyes, walked up to the big politician.
"Yes," said the little man, quietly, "I
saw that you were about to hit him.
That's why I came up." "I don't un
derstand," replied the other. "I got
close to you," continued the little man,
"because I was going to kill you if you
struck Gen. Toombs. I am fixed for
it, and if you had touched him I would
have shot you through the heart!"
Saying this he tapped his hip pocket.
The tall legislator in some confusion
said something apologetic and explan
atory and remembered an engagement
elsewhere. "That little man," said
Bain in conclusion, "was Col. John S.
Hart, one of the bravest cavalry offi
cers in the confederate service. He
was afraid of nothing, and he meant
just what he said. He would have
killed that man if he had struck

Extinction of the Maori*
Judging from a recent report of the
registrar general of New Zealand,
that fine martial race, the Maoris, is
going the way of all aborigines whose
country has been colonized by the
whites. They may not become abso
lutely extinct for a few more decades,
but their doom is sealed. Among the
causes officially assigned for the thin
ning of their numbers are the high in
fantile mortality resulting from im
proper food, exposure, and the want
of ordinary care, constitutions debil
itated by past debauchery, the belief
in native doctors and neglect of the
sick, and the adoption of European
habits and costumes, leading to dis
eases of the respiratory organs. A
Maori M. A., Mr. Nagata, in address
inga recent conference of his country
men, said that drink was pauperizing
them and sapping their vitality.—Lon

Between the woman whose business
takes her much around town and the
wideawake urchins belonging to the
newsboy and bootblack fraternity
there exist feelings of great cordiality,
says the New York Commercial Ad
vertiser. "Necessity has made the
street boy's eyes very observant and
somehow he always sees the way to
help any one out," declares one en
thusiastic friend of the helpful gamin.
"The other day I came downtown, en
cumbered with a dress-suit case in one
hand and an umbrella in the other. I
was also carrying a parcel under my
arm. To my discomfort I felt the
package slipping forward to a point
where it would soon fall. I had a
notion to deposit the suit case on the
wet ground to free one hand when a
newsboy darted to my side and gave
just the little push needed to replace
the parcel under my arm. I am sure,"
triumphantly added the speaker, "that
there are few men of my acquaintances
who would have seen my dilemma or
thought to relieve it." During the
strike few copies of the boycotted
papers were sold to those women who
are indebted to the newsboy for many
friendly offices, such as the restora
tion of dropped packages, or, greatest
favor of all, that shrill whistle which
attracts the attention of the inatten
tive gripman. One such, returning
from her vacation in a region where
New York papers were rare, eagerly
hailed a newsboy with the question:
"Is the strike oft? Did you get what
you wanted?" The small boy shook
his head. "Compr'mised," he said,
and then gloomily, "de leaders was
bought off."
