In the event of Gov. Morton's nomi

Nobody takes Gov. Morton's candi

years younger he would be ahead of
Harrison and perhaps ahead of Alli

whom will the New York delegates go
when, after the ftrst or second ballot,
they drop Morton?
Gov. Morton might .have some
chance to get the nomination, not
withstanding his advanced age. if his
State were in the doubtful column
again. Nobody, however, believes
the Democrats have the faintest chance
to carry New York this year. More

The sound money Democratic Sena
tors are doing right in prepairing to
make a vigorous light against the
Finance Committee's five silver sub

the substitute, they ought to combine
with the Republicans in lehahilitating
the bond measure and in pushing it to
enactment. A law of that sort would
be of great service to the aiiuiiristra

Dean Hole's book giving his im
jiressions f this country, - out.
contains some curious inaccuracies
Ho says, for instance, that in prohi
bition towns liquor is generally dis
pensed in teapots, and tolls about a
guest in a hotel who. upon calling for
something to drink, was told by the
landlord: "You will find a little tap
near your dressing-table in your room,
which will put you in communication
with the old rye, and you can take
what you please for yourself and your
friends, as there is a meter on the
other side of thr wall." !t cannot be
supposed that this was a personal
experience of the good I Van. and it
looks, therefore as if some was.' had
been "stuffing" him.
In a certain Ayrshire lishiug village,
tho local doctor was called in the oth
er day by a stout, sturdy looking wo
man of gigantic proportions, who in
formed him that she had fallen into a
very delicate state of health. The
doctor did not feel called upon to
nearch the pharmacopoeia very deeply;
and he asked if she could eat a her
ring. "Ay," she. replied: "I rather like
"Well, the best thing you can do is
fust keep at them," said the doctor.
On his next visit the question was
put as to whether the patient had felt
herself equal to carrying out the pro
scription. "Oh, yes," answered the woman.
"And how many herring's did you
manage at a meal?" was the next
Weel, sir," was the reply, "I man
aged to eat eleven."
"Eleven"' exclaimed the man of
physic, with an amused smile. "That
is quite as many as I expected. How
did you manage them?"
"Weel, sir, they were rather
strong," said the patient, "but I just
conquered them wi' bried, ye see!"
Mrs. James J. Corbet, that was.

The relatives of Anna Bradshaw,
the young lady who suffered death
whilo undergoing a surgical opera
tion in St. Louis a few days ago, say
she never sinned, and that the dead
child was not hers. They say the
sensational story was circulated t
shield the physicians from blame for
the terrible error which caused the
death of the woman and the child.
They still say that Anna Bradshaw
was oierated on for a tumor, and
that the work was so bungled that, to
conceal tho bungling, the story was
given out that the woman had leen on
tho brink of maternity. A dead child
was secured somewhere, and the in
formation then given out that it was
Anna Bradshaw's. This belief ol the
relatives of the unfortunate woman is,
however, disproved by the post-mortem
examination of Dr. Nietert. which
showed lieyond a doubt that she had

The late ( apt. Wright was aUays
a great admirer of Hon. John Leary,
although othorwise a Democrat, and
when the latter ran for Mayor, nearly
four years since, W right came down
town with a pet parrot on his shoulder,
trying to teach it to say "Hurrah for
Leary." This it would not do, and
after returning home he turned the
hose on it. After this operation the
Captian, feeling very sorry, said:
" you, Polly: you ought to have
said 'Hurrah for Leary.'"
Polly stood before the fire drying
its feathers, and without turning
around said: "You go to h 11."
A fisherman, skilled in music, took
his lyre and his nets to the seashore--but.
let the fisherman tell the rest in
his own inimitable way: "Standing on
a projecting ruck I played several
sweet tunes in the hope that the fish,
attracted by tho melody, would dance
into the net. Presently a large fish
poked his head out of the water and
said: "Sir, if you will play that in the
lower clef we will dance.' I did so
and was surprised to see the net fill up
rapidly with beautiful fish. I kept
on playing in tho bass clef until my
net was completely full of bass. The
largest I caught that day weighed a
trifle over sixteen pounds."
Moral: Evidently the fisherman
brought his lvre home with him.
