A writer in the Snorting Life tells
What he regards as a good story en
Manager Gooding, of the Minneapolis
ball club. Ol course it isn't true, but it
is rather funny. Speaking of the coming
here of Gallagher, the third baseman,
he says:
When Pete reached Minneapolis
Gooding braced him with: "Martin
tells me you are a pretty good ball
player. Now, how, may i ask, do you
throw across the diamond?"
"With my arm," replied Pete as seri
ously as though he were a member of a
theological class.
"Oh, yes. 1 know that," said Good
ing, "but that isn't what I mean. How
ever, do you slide bases pretty well?"
"Do 1? Well, come down here till I
show you a new slide I've got." Pete
started over the Jrun-way, and about
twelve feet from the 'base jumped
head first for the bag, ducked his head,
alighted on his hands, and turning a
somersault on the ground, planted his
•number tens on the bag.
"That's good," said Gooding. "I'll
have you put all the boys onto that
Slide, and I'll make them practice it."
"Yes," said Pete,"it's a good one, that
is. The scheme is to kick the ball out
of the baseman's hands as you go over.
See? Then, in sotto voce, to Jevne:
"Holy Moses. .lev, I've broken me back.
1 wouldn't do it again for a week's gate

An anonymous correspondent, who is
evidently a member of the Labor party,
writes an account of a political discus
sion which he sbvs occurred in a wagon
the other day. The Republican opened
the ball by saying:
"The country calls on every honest
voter to support the Republican party.
We must not allow the Democrats to re
main in power or they will ruin the
nation. We want a "free trade. We
want high protection. AA'e are the ones
why saved the country in the hour of
her peril. We gave the people the great
homestead law. AA'e have protected our
industries and allowed the poor man to
grow rich."'
The Democrat is then allowed to ob
serve: "Oh, it is no such thing. You
are always waving the bloody shirt. We
helped to create the homestead law.
AA'e want no protection, but we do want
free trade. Protection fosters trusts
and corporate monopolies, while free
trade opens up the legitimate channels
of commerce and allows all to compete
in the production of those things which
are necessaries in our natural being."
The United labor man is introduced
with his withering information, and he
wipes the others up as follows: "Hold
on, gentlemen, till I say one word. It's
the same old story with you fellows.
You have cracked the same old nut for
forty years, while the country is grow
ing worse daiiy. There is no issue be
tween you. While you both worked on
the homestead law. you stole 176,000,
--000 acres of our lands and gave
it to the railroads. In your
love for the poor, you have
allowed them to be robbed by indirect
taxation, by taxing them on the prod
ucts of their labor and allowing the
owners of vacant lands to pocket
millions at the expense of the industrial
classes. Pshaw ! Talk your protection
and free trade, but give us the single
tax on land values and in ten years we
will place this government ou a firmer
footing than it lias had since the Declara
tion ol Independence was signed."
The Tribune's cut of the Syndicate
block in yesterday's issue was overshad
owed by the stately proportions of a
boarding house.
. The basket picnic, as a means of re
.cation on Sunday, should be next at

noyance could be thus created by an in
junction. " '
The high license Republicans who \
want to "come gradually to prohibition"
must have been shocked at the contents
of the commissary of the delegation to
Chicago, which left yesterday.
The alliterative headline in a local pa

have been more appropriate.

of justice.

The "Mikado" "Well Produced at
the People's Dramatic Notes.
The "Mikado," which is, musically,
Gilbert and Sullivan's masterpiece, has
rarely been given a more satisfactory
production in Minneapolis than that by
the Deshon-Starr Opera Company at the
People's theater last evening. The
stage was beautifully set, A.
R. Hurt, eclipsing his former
efforts at scenic effect with
the possible exception of the setting for
"Pinafore." The costumes were rich
and beautiful, and the "make-ups" were
in several instances strinkingly Jaoa
nese. Frank Deshon's Ko-ko was* a
delicious piece of comedy acting, which
pleased immensely. Vicar De Lacy, as
Nanki-Poo, was more successful in his
vocal efforts than his dialogue, but
gave a graceful interpretation of the
part on the whole. Tom Rickett
as Pooh-Bah sang the lines of the
lord high everything else well. his as
sumption of dignity was simply over
powering. Miss May Duryea made a
pretty and vivacious Yum- Yum, and
Marie Dressier, who made her first ap
pearance with the company here, was
a very good Katisha. The chorus
was strong and the orchestration, for
the first night, very creditable. "The
Mikado" runs for the balance of the
week, with the usual matinees.

Appear to Control the Destiny and
That Got Off by the Burlington Last
Night— Some of the Pil
There was quite an exodus from Min
neapolis yesterday of young politicians,
who went to Chicago to fill the heated
atmosphere of that wicked city with
their cries for alleged prominent candi
dates for the presidency, of the United
States. There was no rush. There
was simply a noisy and interesting ex
odus by way of the Burlington. The
Omaha, Milwaukee and Wisconsin Cen
tral all carried more or less
pilgrims to the shrine of cen
tralized power, but interest hung
principally around that Burlington
train. It was a long train of sleepers,
but tucked away in one end was the car
known alternately as the Langdon and
the Alger car. It was furnished by the
former and is intended to boom the lat
ter. It was gorgeously gotten up and was
arranged with especial regard to keep
ing off attacks of sunstroke and mala
ria. The smoker was walled off and
placed in special charge of Charlie Hunt,
who, armed with white apron and cork
screw, announced himself as presiding
genius of the mahogany. Freeman P.
Lane was there, but was very quiet,
saying nothing politically, but keeping
a weather eye on the arrangements.
Justice A. P. Abell, with a biography
of Alger for a shirt front and with
Perry Housel to give him advice, was
a conspicuous pilgrim. Tarns Bixby,
secretary of the state league, was there
in all his dignity. W. 11. Place, who is
for Blame or bust, looked askance at
the Alger boom. E. F. Comstock,
I). G. Thompson, James S.
Tripp, G. W. Flanders, E. A. Bigelow,
J. W. Stone, W. J. Canfield, Nelson
Williams, A. W. Giles, George F. Moul
ton, E. B. Patton. A. S. Heffelfinger, R.
B. Thompson, George Moulton, Harry
Cramer, J. G. Uowlett, Major Bill
Regan, A. D. Polk, William McGloney.
F. S. Lewis, S. Myers, C. L. Dower, E.
C. Olson, R. L. Stillman, J. Kantrovitz
and Louis Schilt were among the pil
grims. H. C. Chapin" looked
into the Alger car, caught a
whiff of the Mrs. Casey liquor
and incontinently fled from the train.
Dr. A. H. Hedderly, the discover of P.
F. Davis, was in high popularity, and
was only clouded when he missed the
face of J. C. Worrall.
Col. Thomas Lowry surveyed the
party with considerable interest, and
then took another road.
Judge Atwater said the company was
a little rapid for him and he would wait
over one day.
Resolutions of regret at the absence
of Winn* Brackett, Jim Ege. Charlie
Silloway, Charlie Dunn, and other
Argonauts were adopted in silence.
George Moulton, who is a cousin of
Alger, was in the Langdon car, and was
perhaps the most enthusiastic man in
the party. He said that a strong fight
would be made by the delegates of Min
nesota to nominate Alger, and that in
no way would they give up until they
were defeated. Justice Abell arrived a
few minutes before the train left, at
tired in full dress, with a linen duster
and straw hat.
Strange to say, Freeman P. Lane was
as mum as a Methodist minister, but,
judging from the looks of Charlie Hunt's
blind pig, it would not take long to
bring him into line.
Turns Bixby, secretary of the state
league, was nearly prostrated with the
heat after making a short speech in
dorsing Alger. He was put on the
cooler which was prepared for the occa
The most noticeable thing was that
the wives of the men occupying the
Langdon car were not present.
Has the City Any Rights That
Railroads Respect?
By the prompt action of the police
Saturday night the management of the
Milwaukee road was foiled in a very
neat scheme. It will be remembered
that some time ago an ordinance was
introduced into the city council the
right to run a switch track from
the short line across Twenty-sixth
avenue south, near Twenty-seventh
street, to the Hastings & Da
kota tracking, running to the switch
that leads to Lake Minnetonka, thus en
abling the road to send trains from St.
Paul to Minnetonka without first com
ing into the depot here. No action was
taken on the ordinance, and the road, it
appears, determined to take matters
into its own hands. Saturday night
about 200 tracklayers were at Twenty
sixth street and Twenty-seventh ave
nue south, armed with shovels, etc., to
lay a track there by Monday morning,
as during Sunday no injunction could
be served. The police were informed,
and Assistant Supt. Hoy, after consult
ing Acting Mayor Mareck. went to the
place with a detail of officers, dispersed
the workmen, and left a strong force
guarding the avenue, so that no work
could be done. The matter will proba
bly be settled to-day.
Rev. C. F. Thwing Gives the Young
Men a Talk.
At Plymouth church yesterday morn
ing Rev. Charles F. Timing preached
from the text Psalms, xc.,12, on the sub
ject, "The Young Man's Use of Time."
Time, said he, is often compared to a
river, for like a river, it flows onward in
its silent floods. But the river has an
end and is hemmed iv on either side by
banks. Time has no beginning and no
end. The same moment here is also
the same moment in every place. Time
is often compared to the ocean. But
the ocean cannot transcend the globe,
while time touches the stars. The hour
on earth is the same hour in heaven.
Time began with God, and time
ceases only with God's ceasing
to be. In this series of sermons
to young men, it has seemed
fitting to include a sermon on the best
use of time. In preaching to old men 1
should not select this topic, for to the
old man the time of life is closing; but
to the young man it is beginning. The
question that we have to answer to
night, then, is how we may count our
days so that we may learn wisdom. In
answering, I say: First, count them
with an appreciation at once of their
worth and their worthlessness. Time is
an once of worth priceless, and of worth
lessness absolute. Time is a white page
unwritten. Time is a check. One reads:
"Pay to the bearer, first, happiness;
second, wealth; third, peace; fourth,
character." Signed by the God of
Time. Each in n puts his name on it
and draws the sum indicated. Yet,
without time there is no growth.
Without time no improvement
is possible. Worthless itself, time
opens the door to all wealth.
To kill time is to kill what may be a
man's best friend. The worth of time,
its worth we never know till it is gone,
gone once, gone forever. There is no
recovery of time lost. Second, a wise
numbering of our days may be promoted
by a just conception of the value of the
now. Time past was, time future is
not. Time present is the only time.
Yesterdays never come back, to-mor
rows never come at all. 1 plead for the
now, 1 plead for the best use of the
present minute. The breaking off an
evil habit, the forming of a good habit,
the choice of Christ as example.teacher,
inspirer, these are choices which wis
dom demands be made at once, made
now. Never put off t.l to-morrow what
should be done to-day is the teaching of
the most commonplace wisdom; but the
wisdom is so commonplace merely be
cause of its established truth.
Third— proper counting of our
days is aided. by the endeavor to make
life long, by making life deep and full.
Length of days alone does not cousti-
tute life. It is also composed of the
work which is compressed into it. We
live loDger than Methusaleh. We know
more, do more, travel more than the old
antediluvian. To the child the space
between two birthdays seems endless.
The reason is the child - has more
thoughts, receives in his mind a larger
number of impressions than the old.
Therefore, I say, make time long by
making time full. One does as much in
fifty years now as was formerly done in
500. Moral and Christian life is
lengthened by the opportunities of ser
vice. Words spoken for Christ are
caught up by a thousand printing
presses and read in other languages.
The sermons of one preacher in this
country, it is estimated, have 13,000,000
of readers. Is not Mr. Spureeon the
preacher, not of the tabernacle in
London, but of the world. I can dictate
through the dispatches in my check
book the mission policy in Corea. Tne
printing press, the telegraph, the steam
ship make life longer through making
it deep in Christian as well as mercan
tile civilization. Likewise, I receive as
well as give more.
Fourth, we receive aid in so number
ing our days that we may apply our
hearts unto wisdom by recalling that
our past lives decide our future. The
impact of the weighty past upon the
weightless future is mighty.
Time looks forward as well as back
ward. Therefore make its to-morrows
right, that when to-morrow become?
yesterday, its influence upon to-day
may be right. And this brings me to
the most important remark of my
whole sermon.
Fifth— Remember that it is rightly to
be applied, your heart unto wisdom.
Your heart is youis; wisdom is good
ness, righteousness, love. Apply your
heart unto goodness, righteousness,
love, noble character. Let your feelings
be warmed and inspired by such sub
lime apprehension. Let your will be
moved to choose goodness. Without
God the noblest character is without the
choicest treasure.
An Interesting Sermon by William
M. Salter, of Chicago.
Rev. W. M. Salter, of Chicago, occu
pied the pulpit of the First Unitarian
church yesterday. He preached an in
teresting sermon on "A Faith tor To-
Lay." The following is a synopsis of
The world— at least the earnest part
of it— is becoming impatient with mere
negations. The weakness of liberalism
s that it has been too largely critical
and iconoclastic. The ethical move
ment brings forward something posi
tive. First, an ideal of life. The old
faith had a noble ideal in the "Kingdom
of God." But it is no longer seriously
entertained. It is a Utopia; our ideal is
a perfect order of society. We aim at a
social state where all shall attain com
plete manhood or womanhood. In the
ideal order there shall be no sacrificed
classes. No one's body will have to be
stunted, no one's sympathies thwarted,
no one's conscience seared. Lv ryjpi.e
shall be an end in himself and not
merely a means to others' ends.
Secondly, we have a conviction as to
the ordering of the world. Instead of a
reign of caprice, with prayer as an es
sential part of religion, we recognize a
reign of law. Conditions are set for all
that? we can desire, and piety consists in
searching out those conditions and
scrupulously observing them. For
health, for happiness, for peace of
mind, for the victory of justice in the
world, these conditions are unalterably
set. If we observe them, prayer is su
perfluous. If we do not, prayer if of
no avail. God is not denied. To ob
serve the conditions and to obey God
are the some thing.
Thirdly, a conviction arises that the
ideal on which we set our hearts will
somehow, somewhere, be realized. If
not on this earth, then elsewhere. The
world is tending somewhither. An
ideal society of rational beings is the
goal of the universe. The good, or
those set on becoming so, cannot perish.
When the earth grows cold and the sun
ceases to give its light, all will not be
over. We are remembered by the eter
nal source whence we came; heard
within us is itsjvoice a voice calling us
to a life that has its own reason for
being, and can never end.
Mr. Salter will speak further on the
ethical movement at the Nicollet house
parlors this (Monday) evening at 8
o'clock. A collection of the literature
of the movement will be there, and he
will be glad to meet informally any who
may be interested.
Religion Must Be Bold and Cour
ageous, Yet Gentle.
Rev. Marion D. Shutter preached at
the Grand opera house to the congre
gation of the Church of the Redeemer,
from I. Cor. x., 1:
Religion is not contained in a single
term. He who thinks he understands
it all at the start; who believes that its
entirety is embosomed in a single ex
perience will find as he advances that
it is larger and more varied
than he dreamed. The qualities
which have always won their
way and borne dominion in
the world are such as boldness, cour
age, strength, enthusiasm, iron resolu
tion. The active energies of ' men are
not to be suppressed. There are great
primal forces organized into human
nature that can not be eradicated, but
they may be turned to better uses.
One's temper, his anger, his restless
energy may not be destroyed, but con
verted. When this is done they be
come the strong features of religion.
They form its backbone, its sturdy
frame-work. They are its battle
ments of defense, its hosts
of aggression and conquest.
On the other hand religion has its gen
tler side. There is a large class of
milder virtues, of sweeter graces, the
text speaks of the meekness and gentle
ness of Christ. He came pronouncing
blessings on the poor in spirit, the meek
the merciful. Patience, gentleness,
meekness are not so conspicuous,, but
they are quite as useful in their places
as zeal and courage. They are needed
to give completeness, and beauty and
sympathy to character. They are
needed in the actual work of the
world. The calls of duty are
not all sounded on the trumpet,
They come in very plaintive notes
sometimes. They come from the lips
of neglected children; they come from
the wanderer, the afflicted, the disap
pointed. The figures under which the
Christian is represented are not all
drawn from military life. Is it not said,
for example, "Ye are the light of the
world?" What does that mean? How
does light operate? When does it
come? It comes into the dungeon of
the captive, bearing messages from the
outer world. It enters the sick room
where sleepless eyes have watched
through restless hours for the morning.
It comes to the wayfarer, who, lost in
the forest, has shivered with terror
through the night. It brings hope on
its rosy wings to hearts that sank dis
pairing to slumber. Light does not
move to martial music. Our work is
not alone to smite evil, but also to heal,
to bind up, to comfort men.
Crowds at Lake Harriet.
Yesterday was the first day that the
new pavilion at Lake Harriet was
thrown open to thepublic,and the 10,000
people who were present attested their
appreciation and pleasure by many

building nor improvements are as yet
completed, but everything will be in
good order by next Sunday. A. O. '
Hoyt, general manager, was present
and did his utmost to please the crowds
who attended his first day.

Men Prominent in the Travelers' Pro
tective Association,
Personal Chat Connected With Officials
and Members of the Great
O. Pindell, the handsome president of
the T. P. A. was in Butte, Mont., on
business connected with the order, and
while there met several traveling men,
and held an informal meeting at the
hotel. Before escaping from the city
he was rounded up by an enterprising
reporter on the Butte Miner, who se
cured from him this interview: "I
undersland, Mr. Pindell, that the na
tional convention of the Travelers' -
Protective association will be held in
Minneapolis June 19, the same time
that the Republican convention is to be
held. Can you give me an idea of what
the convention will do?"
"Well, yes. We will dictate terms to
the Republicans, for one thing, and we
have no doubt but what they will in
dorse our candidates, who are "bound to
be elected. We have now 30,000 mem
bers, and each member is a rustler. The
drummer is known all over the country
for his social qualities, and 1 tell you
each one of the boys will go out and
work ll ike beavers with their friends,
and there is no doubt in my mihd as to
the result. Who will be the candidates?
Well, the boys wanted me to accept.but I
have had honor enough thrown on my
young shoulders. But I tell you we
must carry Kentucky, the stronghold of
Democracy, and Joe Mulhatton can do
that. He can also carry the rest of the
Southern states, while Charley White,
of New York, has promised to deliver
the electoral vote of the Empire state for
Mulhatton. Charley says he always
carries New York in his vest pocket.
The boys from Chicago say Illinois is
safe, the Minneapolis and St. Paul gang
promise to wheel Minnesota into line
for our candidates. That was one of
the reasons why we selected Minneap
olis as the place to hold our convention.
Bob Sumerville promises Ohio; Will
Brewer thinks that with good rustling
they can carry Texas; Judge Wilkinson
hopes to overcome the effects of the
Democratic convention and carry Mis
"M. J. Pickering says that by a liberal
protective plank in the platform (and
the drummers are always solid on plat
forms) Pennsylvania will go for our
ticket. John Nash thinks that owing to
the split in the Democratic ranks in In
diana that state will go for the ticket.
C. S. Bradley has promised Connecticut;
Will Warner,Massachusetts,and George
Cladwor they_Maryland.The one state we
have any fear for is Kansas, as the boys
are a little offish there; but they will
come around all right into the ranks, if
we have to club them. Then, by put
ting Col. Phil Tronnstine, of Colorado,
on the ticket as vice president and a
silver plank in the platform, Colorado
will surely go for Trounstine. We can
not lose in this presidential campaign."
M. J. Pickering, one of the delegates
from Pennsylvania, had a narrow es
cape once from being made a member
of the interstate railway commission
appointed by President Cleveland.
When the commission was being made
up a delegation of prominent traveling
men, all members of the T. P. A.,
waited upon the president and present
ed the name of Mr. Pickering. The
president did not give a decided answer,
but the "boys" went away feeling quite
confident that their man was going in.
When the names of the commissioners
were made public Mr. Pickering's
name was not on the list. It
filially leaked out how he had
lost. Just before the president made
the arpointments a friend of Commis
sioner Schuenmacher called upon the
president, and by oily talk convinced
the chief executive that it would be
better to appoint the latter, as he was a
gentleman, while Mr. Pickering was a
"mere traveling man, a bummer," with
out any sense." Mr. Pickering took his
defeat calmly, as he could afford to
laugh at oeing called a bummer. Mr.
Pickering is one of the wittiest dele
gates here and a gentleman throughout.
His friends declare that he will be ap
pointed next time.

It Was Sunstroke Crazed Him—
His Wife's Condition.
Capt. J. A. Reed may yet live. His
case took a turn for the better yester
day, and though the chances are still
heavily against his recovery, there is a
bare possibility that he may pull
through. The danger now lies in in
flammation, suppuration and blood poi
soning, and this intensely hot weather
greatly aggravates that danger. Dr.
ticker said yesterday that Capt.
Reed had a good constitution,
which was a point in his
favor, and that the location of the
wound, the ball having passed through
the pharynx/forms a natural drainage
tube, and water and disinfectants
can readily be used. If Inflammation
can be prevented there is a chance for
recovery .
Mrs. Reed has been in almost as great
need of medical care as her husband.
The news of the shooting seemed to be
numb her faculties at first, but when
she first entered the house she
swooned away, and upon reviving, be
came delirious. She could not be
convinced her husband was not
already dead and her suffering was
very pitiable. Last evening she had
become somewhat better and was taken
to the sick room, where the sight of her
husband still living had a beneficial ef
fect upon her, and the physicians at
once busied her in caring for him, which
is rapidly tranquilizing her mind. The
captain is perfectly rational and yester
day talked of his condition, though no
questions were asked him. It is very
certain now, that when he entered „_*»
house on Saturday, he was suffering
from the effects of a light sun
stroke: He had the one idea of
cooling his head, and for that purpose
had gone to the bath room. While in
the wandering mental condition he evi
dently shot himself without knowing
what he was doing. He has now no

A Farmer's Great Luck.

It is not often that men pick up a
fortune in the road, but such was the
luck of a farmer of this county a few
days since, lie was passing along the
road about fourteen miles northeast of
this place and chanced to examine an

old pot which the recent rain had
washed up, and to his amazement he '
found it filled with gold coins". .The>
treasure amounted to near $18,000. Near
it was an iron pin driven in a tree -in*
such a manner as to point to the spot
where the hidden treasure lay. It is
supposed that the money: was hidden
by some Missouri . guerillas who had
turned robbers after the war. 7 .

'•;. Case. .■;,.'-■ ...-,..
Pittsburg Chronicle. 7 ■•.-'.'*
In the breach of promise suit of Miss
-J Annie Palmer against Charles F. Gerty,
the defendant was put on the stand yes
terday afternoon and testified that they
were to have been married on Christmas
eve, but that he had been disappointed
in getting some money from his
■uncle, and he requested Miss Palmer
to let the affair drop. He said Miss
Palmer knew the wedding depended
upon the contingency of getting money
from his uncle, who had since died. He
said he wouldn't marry Miss Palmer
now if he could. He confessed that he
told Miss Palmer that Miss Moody
would shoot him if he got married, and
he believed the latter lady would have
carried out her threat.
i Dec. 27, 1885, Mr. Gerty wrote the
following letter to Miss Palmer in re
gard to the Miss Moody episode :
My Darling Annie: I find it neces
sary to drop you a few lines to let you
know that it will be impossible for me
to come up to-morrow afternoon. Per
haps I can get back in time to come up
in the evening. 1 told you I was up to
see Dell. Well, I went, and I might
have stayed away for all the good I
done by it. I saw her, explained why I
had come to see her, and everything. I
told her I had everything arranged to
get married, and asked her to allow
me to. So she told me she was
very sorry, but as I had every
thing ready, she would have to be the
bride herself, and would not think of
allowing any one to take her place. I
coaxed, I offered her anything within
reason, but she refused. She said she
had the first and best claim, and she
was going to keep it. I saw it was no
use. so told her 1 would get married
anyhow. She dared me to do so. Well,
I had to give it up as a bad job, and be
gan to talk about other things.
rhe e er , then goes an to state that
Miss Delia Moody denies the story of
being outside the house with a revolver
when the wedding was to take place,
and said she proposed to make it un
pleasant for the persons who circulated
the story.
In a letter dated Dec. 19, 1885, Gerty
writes to Miss Palmer's brother for his
consent to the nuptials, as the young
lady was under age.
In a letter dated 94 Evergreen avenue,
Dennett, Pa., September, 1885, Gerty
says that he is not a poet, and can not
answer Miss Palmer's letter with the
same poetic fervor that colors hers. He
can only walk the common earth and
dwell with earthly tilings. "I mean,"
he says, "that I cannot put the color on
my thoughts you can.such as 'the sunny
side of sweet deliverance,' 'yours till
death do us part,' and so on; but I agree
with you, for we will be true till death
do us part, and then I do sincerely hope
to meet you on the sunny banks of
sweet deliverance."
Still he was not so discouraged as to
fail to make an attempt at poetry, as
the following letter from Chicago
shows :
My Dearest Attired in under
shirt, slippers, light pants and linen
coat, and armed with writing paper, pen
and ink and Waverly's Magazine, I*
bend; my steps towards the cool, shady
banks of Lake Michigan, and sit me
down to write my thoughts about some
one who has been haunting me all night
and all morning. How much 1 would
give just now to have you
with me, to ; feel your sweet
breath upon my cheek, to clasp you in
my arms as I used to in the sweet days
gone, by— to have just one kiss. 'Tis
lovely to sit here and watch the ships
go a sailing by on the deep blue lake.
If you were only here. Pet, to enjoy it
with 'me, Pet. Oh, if you only knew
how much I love you, Pet, you - would
never doubt me again. I know there
was it time when you thought I loved
you. So I did; but my love for you
then is nothing compared to what it is
now. The piece 1 was going to write is
too long, so I will write you one of mv
own for a starter. This is what I call
my July poem:
It was a calm evening in July,
And our rooster is crying for a fry,
The pump handle squeaks.
Like a sacred man speaks,
-~ As the hired girl jerks the pump.
The frogs squeak loud,
The girls all in a crowd,
When a tiny little mouse climbs up on
a stump.
And the beautiful spring is gone:
But summer is here,
And ice cream is near.
So sad am I,
I'd like to cry,
For my last cent has followed the spring
Come out some time and see me and
I'll tell you the rest. What do you
think of it, Annie? Ain't I quite a
poet? But don't tell anybody. Do
please write and I will answer prompt
ly. From your devoted and dearest,
your dearest and only true lover.
-, „ . . C. F. Gerty.
Following is some of the colloquy be
tween the defendant and counsel.
"Couldn't you keep a wife without
help from your uncle?"
"Had you any intention of trifling
with her affections?"
"Were you working at the time the
.marriage was to take place?"
' "Yes."
"Well, then, couldn't you afford to get
"Yes, but I couldn't afford to keep
her afterward."
"You promised to get a preacher,
didn't you?"
"Did you tell Miss Palmer that Delia
Moody threatened to shoot you if you
got married?"
"That's what I said, and that's what I
believe now she would have done."
"For what reason?"
"She thought she had a claim on me."
"You had two girls on the string then.
How many have you now?"
"One at the present time." • '
"Was it poverty or fear of Delia that '.
prevented the marriage?"
"If 1 had the money I would have
gone ahead." i
"Didn't you own a valuable horse
that you took around the country?" i
"That mare belonged to my grand
father. It's thirty-three years old, '
but it can trot a mile in three minutes '
yet." i
The plaintiff was recalled and asked
if she had not understood tnat Gertv's :
friends were to start him in a coalyard
after the marriage, and said she did.
Mr. Hays— Then, if Mr. Gerty did not
get a coalyard,- you were not to get mar
"No; we were to be married."
Judge Stowe— Wedding first, coalyard :
afterward, eh?
[The jury rendered a verdict for §500
in favor of Miss Palmer.]
Mr. Hoard says he wants a cow that
will respond to good feed and good
usage. He will see to it that she has
. both in abundance. It is his duty to
provide the conditions; hers to answer
. them.

Londofa Q_eef?^|J*^r. _:•,»- -„ :.
Before play commences, which it does
at 11 or 12 olclock, according to the sea
son, solemn processions may be seen on
their way to the salon, First come -two
attendants in livery, carrying -between'
them a money chest; " and " close { behind
march the 'croupiers who are 'to begin!
work, and of whom there; are 1 seven to
each table. Four : of : these " sit facing
each other on either side of the roulette
board in the center, and one at each end.
The seventh, the chef da partie, as he is
called, perches himself on a high stool
close behind one of the pairs of croup
iers at the center, keeps a lookout all
around, and is appealed to in any case
of dispute. "Je domine," are the words
in which he expresses his position.
Each of the croupiers, the chef de
partie excepted, is armed with : a long
handled rake, which, as it has no such
work to do, is strengthened at the foot
by a plate of brass. The bank notes are
placed in boxes, the money counted out
and the louis and five-franc pieces ar
ranged in long rows standing on their
edges, so that they look like gold and
silver snakes. Each of the four crou
piers at the center has snakes of both
colors to look after. * Those at the end
of the tables have nothing to do with
raking in or paying out the money lost
or won; their business is to put stakes
on or rake winnings off for those who,
unable to secure seats at the table, are
crowding around outside, to get change
for them as required, and to keep order.
And now is the time to begin; the
rakes of the croupiers facing each other
at the center are laid across the table,
head to head, their long, thin handles
appearing beyond the elbows of the men
about to yield them with so much skill.
The croupiers at the top and bottom lay
their instruments close in front of them
at right angles to the length of the ta
ble, which is long enough to accommo
date about twenty players besides the
croupiers, and eight shorter racks, un
shod with brass, are placed ready for
the use of players. All is now prepared
for the attack, the garrison is perfectly
drilled and disciplined, and amply sup
plied with the sinews of war. Table
and men together form one machine, a
machine that plays without committing
a mistake, never made reckless by dis
aster, never rendered foolish by success.
Open the doors, then, and let all who
will approach and do battle. Daily the
challenge is accepted, the chairs are
seized at once, the forces are ready to
renew the assault. Many of the players
produce pocketbooks or sheets of paper
ruled in every conceivable way; these
are the believers in systems or martin
gales. Others are content to use the
cards and pins supplied by the attend
ants; others again neither know nor
care what color or number last came up,
but play haphazard as the fancy takes
them. AVhen those who mean toplav
have put on their stakes, the croupier
in charge of the roulette board, who
has several times uttered the warning.
"Messieurs, faites vos jeux," gives the
ball a spin in one direction, the revolv
ing disk a spin in the other, and the
battle begins in earnest.
Deafness Among White Animals.
Boston Post.
Why is it, I wonder, that white ani
mals are so often deaf? The white Eng
lish terrier is almost always so, and the
white English bull terrier is very fre
quently afflicted with this defect. lam
told by those who are skilled in white
cats that they, too, are apt to have the
same infirmity, and I have heard,
though I cannot cite my authority on
the spot, that a white goat is even more
deaf to reason and discourse than other
animals of the same species but of posi
tive color. So far as I know white
horses have the usual sense of hearing,
though investigation might prove that
they were deficient in this respect.

The Blood
Is the source of health; therefore, to keep
well, purify the blood by taking Hood's
Sarsaparilla. This medicine is peculiarly
designed to act upon the blood, and through
that upon all the organs and tissues of the
body. It has a specific action, also, upon
the secretions and excretions, and assists
nature to expel from the system all humors,
Impure particles and effete matter, through
the lungs, liver, bowels, kidneys, and skin.
It effectually aids weak, impaired, and de
bilitated organs, invigorates the nervous
system, tones the digestive organs, and im
parts new life and energy to all the func
tions of the body. A peculiarity of Hood's
Sarsaparilla is that it strengthens and builds
up the system while it eradicates disease.
Scrofula, Salt Rheum, Dyspepsia, Bilious
ness, Sick Headache, Liver Complaint,
Catarrh, Rheumatism, etc., are cured by
