been considerable discussion as to the

!M;u:aser of St. Paul Horse Show.
Ashbrook, of Kansas City, claims that
he now has four that can accomplish
the feat. There has been considerable
rivalry between Ashbrook and Palmer
the past year, and each is anxious to
own the champions.
As a special feature for horse show
■week. Col. Carling has offered $500 to
the man that can lower the record,
and the probabilities are that there
will be at least three entries —Palmer,
Ashbrook and Batonyi. The record
made by Palmer's team last year was
a mile in 2:55%, drawing a coach
loaded with passengers.
All three of the men that are likely
to make the entries for this event are
experienced whips and would not like
ly undertake the trial unless they
thought they could succeed, hence tho
probabilities are that at least two of
them will succeed, and If more than
one starts he is willing to add $200
and make it a race, the whole of the
purse to go to the winner. If the pres
ent plans are carried out it will prove
one of the most exciting races ever
witnessed, and will attract thousands
from all parts of the country.

*King Mogy" and Some of His Subjects in the Realm of the Newsboy.
"Huxtra, huxtra; all about the ex
plosion. Paper, Mister, buy a paper
for 2 cents."
Two hundred newsboys sell papers
on the streets of St. Paul. The ages
of these "newsies" range from 5 to 50,
and all of them ' are hustlers. If a
boy is not a hustler, he has no busi
ness trying to sell papers in St. Paul,
because the competition here is so.
strong that the youngsters have to
work for every penny they take in.
The boys who sell the morning pa
pers are out as early as 5 o'clock,
ready to cater to the first people on
the streets. From 5 in the morning
until 9 in the forenoon the person de
siring to purchase . a morning paper
will have a half dozen or more oppor
tunities within the range of a block
in most any down-town section of the
Nearly every newsboy has his own
particular "stand" and very few of
them wander far from the selected
locality. After the hour of 9 in the
forenoon very few "newsies" are to be
found on the street until the "noon
extras" are off the press. These noon
editions are delivered to the boys at
11 o'clock and from that hour until 1
in the afternoon the youngsters go
after the pennies of the man going to
his lunch. When the noon editions
are disposed of the youngsters have
another breathing spell until the eve
ning papers are out, and then they
again take up their positions and hus
tle until 6, and many of them 7 in the
Thus the grind goes on, day in and
day out, and the pennies grow into
dollars as the papers disappear. Some
of these boys make good money and
save it, while others who sell papers
more to get a little spending money
than because they have to, spend their
day's earnings before they go home in
the evening.
Of Many Nationalties.
Of the different nationalties repre
sented by the "newsies" the Jews and
Italians lead by large odds, although
there are a few Syrians, some Amer
icans and fewer negroes. In St. Paul
there are but two colored newsboys.
And of these 200 youngsters who sell
papers on the streets of St. Paul, none
work harder and few sell more papers
than the little 6-yetir-old girl, who can
be found in front of the federal build
ing each evening. No matter what the
weather is, fair or stormy, hot or cold,
this little girl never misses a day, and
her punctuality has won for her many
regular customers.
And this same little girl has a
younger brother who is entitled to
some distinction, inasmuch as he is
the youngest and smallest "newsie"
in the city. With a bundle of papers
almost as large as himself, this young
ster "makes the court house" and after
that building has been thoroughly
worked, takes up his position at the
federal building, where he and his
sister work together.
When The Globe photographer
found this little fellow, and stated
that he wanted him to pose for a pic
ture on account of his being the
youngest boy in the business, the lad
was not pleased at all.
"I might be de smallest in size," he
said, "but I sells just as many papers
as de rest of 'em. Buy a paper and
you can have me picture."
The paper was bought and the
youngster posed, but .before the ca
mera could be trained ftp the little fel
low he had spied a p&spective cus
tomer a half block a»'d|f, and was off
like an automobile. *He sold a paper
and returned to keep Ms word.
Then another grouiOof the young
sters was found at Sejenth and Wa
basha streets. Here If&lt a dozen or
more were lined up for their pictures,
and everything was wjfijking lovely for
the man with the cfimera when one
mischievous "newsie^gfarted trouble
by demanding pay. t «
"Say, wot do we git for dis work?
Our time's, worth money. Dig up or
we won't stand."
The demand caused^ a stampede
among the others and all of them de
manded pay before they would pose.
After some argument'tiiey agreed to a
proposition, and stoodtfior a snap shot.
The Boys Ar^Honest.
Whatever may be saH of the aver
age newsboy it must be said that he is
honest. Take his word and you will
lose nothing buy it. There may be
some tricks to their trade, and they
may sell you a paper a little out of
date, but when they tell you a thing
you can generally depend upon them.
Buy a paper of one of them and tender
them a larger piece of money than
they have change for and you will
have no cause to worry about your
change if the boy go^s for change and
gets out of your sight. They are sure
to return with your money.
The newsboys who sell papers in St.
Paul are supplied from four substa
tions, one being at the newspaper of
fice, where the down-town hustlers
get their papers, and the others dis
tributed in the out-lying districts of
the city.
One queer thing about the lads who
sell papers in St. Paul is that not one
out of twenty-five of them depend
upon their paper sales for mainte
nance. Many of them are poor and
support themselves with the money
they earn, but they have homes and
would continue to eat and sleep were
they never to see another paper. An
other thing is, a large per cent of them
attend school, selling their papers out
side of school hours.
One of the most interesting charac
ters who sells papers is the old man
who can be seen daily at Seventh and
Robert streets. He is probably fifty
years old and little is known of him.
Recently he was released from the
hospital and, having no money, started
selling papers. He cannot speak Eng
lish, and were it not for his bundle of
papers one would not known what he
was trying to say as he calls his
wares to the passersby.
King of the Newsies.
Every city has its "king of the
newsboys," and St. Paul is no excep
tion in this particular.
"Mosy is king."
Everybody knows Mogy, although if
he were to be referred to as Mr. Bern
stein not one in a thousand of his
daily customers would recognize the
name. They know him simply as
"Mog-y," and that is sufficient. Mogy
has some fifty boys under him, and to
these youngsters he furnishes papers
when their first supply received at the
newspaper office is sold out.
Mogy has been selling papers for a
good many years, but he hustles just

as hard today as he did at any time in
his life. He has sold papers in a num
ber of the principal cities of the coun
try, having come to St. Paul from
Omaha three years ago. Since coming
here his hustling propensities seem to
have inspired his younger competitors,
and the "hustling" is done with much
more vigor than it was a few years
"St. Paul is a good street sale
town," said Mogy, when asked to com
pare it to other cities in which he had
hustled. "It is one of the best I have
ever worked in, and I might add that
it is getting better every day."
Sure He Was an Agnostic.
The Rev. Washington Gladden, after
a lecture at Harvard, discussed with a
number of students the Christian re- #
ligion. The students, as is sometimes the
way with young men, manifested a lack
of faith. They were not ashamed of this
lack, either. They seemed, on the con
trary, to be proud of it.
"I," said a lad of eighteen years, a
freshman, "I am an agnostic." He spoke
pompously, his hands in his pockets. He
regarded narrowly the effect on Mr. Glad
den of his bold words.
"You are an agnostic?" said the cler
"I am an agnostic."
"What is an agnostic?" Mr. Gladden
asked. "Tell me, won't you, Just what
meaning you attribute to that word?"
The lad swaggered about the room. He
still kept his hand 3in his pockets. "An
agnostic," he said, frowning, "why, an
agnostic is—ah—a fellow —a fellow who
isn't sure of anything."
"How does it happen, then," asked
the clergyman, "that you're sure you're
an agnostic"—New York Tribune.
Bridge Tally Cards.
For a set of tally cards for bridge whist
an artist has recently designed a set of
water color studies of bridges, which are
most charming. One shows the East River
bridge, another the Bridge of Sighs at
Venice, a third the ice bridge at Niagara,
a fourth the natural bridge of Virginia, a
fifth London bridge. In addition to these
are various quaint old bridges in Holland,
Norway and this country. Several small
bridges mossy and picturesque and design
ed simply for their picture quality, also
formed a part of the set.
A Very Excellent Thing.
The stenographer who couldn't spell
was called into the private office.
"This is outrageous!" exclaimed tiie
"What's the matter?" asked the ste
"Half of these words are misspelled,"
said the employer.
But the stenographer was resourceful.
Only a day or so before she had been read
ing an article on spelling reform.
"How do you know they are?" she
''Any dictionary will prove it," replied
the employer.
"What's the use. of relying on diction
aries?" asked the stenographer. "We are
in a period of great changes."
Thereupon she brought out six different
magazines that had articles on the differ
ent methods of simplyfying English spell
ing and demonstrated to him without
trouble that authorities could be produced
for any old combination of letters that
she cared to l? ut together.—Brooklyn
How to Cure a Cat.
It may be an old trick, but I never
heard of it until Dr. F. L,. Van Note, the
Flatbush dentist, told me about it yes
terday. Tis office cat was ailing and he
was going to administer a dose of medi
cine to her.
"How do you do It?" I asked. "A cat
is so plaguey obstinate!"
"Yes-, but it is very easy to make her
take medicine." said be. "Just put it into
something sticky and rub it on her paws.
She will lick every particle of it off."
There's ingenuity worthy of Conan
Doyle.—Brooklyn Eagle.
