PRESS COMMENT ON MCDONALD COMPANY. “Dixie Land” as played by the McDonald Company, was one of the most touching dramas, and the audience last night was a large and enthusiastic one, says the Fulton, Kentucky. Commer cial. It was full of fun and The old-time darkies of the South were all there in their inimical drollery and mirth—Southern simplicity and ways of long ago. The scenes and character sketch es—the acting, songs and all, was so much a part of the South, that one was carried back once more to the 'Southern cornfield and cotton patches. The ‘ ‘masher woman” had everything her own way, and Josephus Squashtop was “it” sure enough. But the little soubrette was clear out of sight in her charming ways of caprice and sweet cunning. With the news of the rebellion, the aid gents hysterical pantomime and the old lady was just awful in her nervous parade of excite ment and fear. THE FAST TRAINS.

Topeka Is much agitated over revels* Uons of draw poker in high places, and nothing could better show thas this up roar what Inroads the civilization of the east is making on the life of the bound less prairies. Once upon a time, statee the Kansas City Journal, draw poker was i to Kansas what bridge whist is to the parlors of the fashionable. It was prac tised as an art, a pastime, a profession. No ons thought then of concealing hil play of the game, but, rather, it was a I subject of pride end boasting. Indeed, it was more than a game, for it served at times in the adjudication of the mosl serious problems of state or government At present the law of Kansas recog alses the game of chance known at "drawing lots” as the proper means ol deciding all ties in elections, but form* •rly draw poker was resorted to aa s more orderly means of compromising For example, in one of the western coun ties, when two amiable gentlemen tied for the office of representative the) played 9 game of “freeze-out” to de* tsrmine which should enjoy the office Again, not so many years ago, when ths senate committee on congressional ap portionment came to a deadlock over the divers plane for dividing the atate Into congress districts, the members ad journed to a room In the Copeland, took each a generous stack of chips and played to a finish. Under the terms of this historical game the committeeman who lost his chips withdrew himself and his apportionment plan from furthei consideration; and when the game was reduced to two gentlemen, me one wu» froze the other out fixed the plan of ap portionment, which stands with little change as the plan of to-day. Volume* could be written of poker in cidents in Kansas. Once a well knows congressman, who, by the way, has reap peared in Kansas politics, had to meet the charge made by some ovsrprudish people that he was addicted to ths game of poker. He appealed to his political asoclates to help him out. The one whe came most energetically to his recuza was Capt. Bill Hackney, the Winfield statesman. “I am In a position to state," certified the doughty captain, "that Mr. Blank is less addicted to the game than any man I ever played with.” More elaborate but quite as effective was the defense once made by Steve Os born, ex-speaker of the Kansas house. Some 12 years ago Steve was running for reelection to the ofllce of district Judge In western Kansas. The pops got out a handbill accusing him of being a "pokei player” and circulated It widely. IMPROVEMENTS IN TRAVEL. f Comfortable Fitting;* of Railway Car* for the Benefit ef Sab irb«B Passenffera. Some newspaper attention has lately been attracted to the “club cars” by which little groups of wealthy New Y^rk a.nd Chicago business men Increase the comfort of the dally trips between their suburban homes and their city offices, states Youth’s Companion. Each car Is in effect a club house on wheels. Most of the gorgeous fittings ot the ordinary cars are removed, and simp ler and more tasteful decorations are substituted for them. Movable wicker chairs replace the fixed seats. Electric fans cool the air In summer. There are dressing rooms, libraries, appartments for the women, In short, everything which tan contribute to the eomfort of the travelers. The cars ar» open only to members ol the group which hires them, but they represent merely the climax of a con stant Improvement In travel, both bv water and by rail. At the other end of the scale we see the steerage accommodations of the ocean steamships. Persons who are familiar only with the horrible conditions fot which "a steerage passage" used to stand would be astonished if they were to visit % modern liner. More room, more ngni, more privacy, better food, better sleep ing and sanitary accommodations and an abundance of water, both for drinking j and for bathing, are now possible even to the poor Immigrant. The steerage , passage of to-day Is a more comfortable j mode of travel than was the second cabin passage ten years ago. First | cabin accommodations have improved ■ correspondingly. One of the newest vessels has between 40 and 60 suites ol rooms, each provided with Its private bath. What is most needed now is a substitu lion of wicker or leather seats for the unsanitary plush so dear to American car builders and album makers, and greater seating capacity in street cars. Joke on the Professor. Once ipon a time Prof. Wilson, at Edinburgh, wrote on the blackboard in bis labora'ory: “Prof. Wilson Informs his student* that he has this day been appointed hon orary physician to the queen.” In the coi rse of the morning he had occasion to l*ave the room, and foundoo his return that a student had added to the announcement the words: "God save the queen."—Michigan gateway.
