Dr. Adam Norris, my acboolmastt3r in those days, knowinir that I waa a past master in chemistry and an adopt at ttao mannf actnrc of col ored fire, directed ma to "organize an entertainment. The old ccntlcman is gone now where there may "or may not be fireworks, bnt to his dying day he never nppreciat"d my efforts on his bo half. It was proposed to illnminate tho plsyronnds with colored fires nnd bin- tciTC, to invite the fiarents of tho SO scholars and to rognlo them after the diMi.tay with cake nnd wine I mean, of oourf tho parents. ' I was let oft my evening lessons for a week and allowed tho ran of the school laboratory. There I reveled in preparations. Not content with mere red. Moo and yellow fires, I arranod Catht rino wheels and Roman candles and rockets. I felt tho instinct of a urot K ana a ram nsinc in mo. I even askrd Dr. Korris for additional monev. telling him that I had an idea for a splendid novelty. lie trusted me, tak ing the word of onr " chemistry master that J knew what I was doing. My novelty, which I kept as a grand sur prise, consisted of a "set piece," with tho words: "God blew Dr. Adam Nor ris." This lienign wish wonld come out in red fire and flnbscqnently chance to prom, if all went well. The night ar nved and the company. Tho prelimi nary illumination- was not entirely snc- cesTuI, an my annuitants did not under stand their hnsincss, bat tho first Cath erine i heel went aronnd several times and appeared to le well liked. ' Owing to some unfortunate miscalculation with tho materials, my rockets wonld not soar. Tho spirit was willing; the chemical compound was weak. So they toro nbout the ground, like snakes, and hissed in among the company, and one let off pnrplo stars under the petticoat of a Luly. A solitary rocket really went np a considerable distance, and the stick fell through the hothouso of a man nest door, who had always been unfriendly toward tho school. I pass by the hot nir balloon. It soared all right, but I forgot to no on tho mag nesium light, so nobody realized what a tine thing was being done. The Ro man c.indles imsscd off without adverse continent, and then I lighted the "set piece." l on will not believo what happened. Nobody has ever credited the storv. though I have told it to thousands. The facts, however,' nro these: Owing to unforeseen circumstances, the first two words of tho display those asking God to bless our good master did not light at ell: tho next word, Doctor," fell off altogether; tho 'A"iu Adam also fail ed, and tuo whole of our preceptor s surname, excepting the .initial letter, blew up. What was the result? W by. against the black night, raised on sup ports some 20 feet aliove the heads of the bewildered assembly, there blared forth n solitary colossiil "Dam 3. It burned red. and then in a silence that conld bo felt tnrned green. The Damn" and I turned green together. That ended the entertainment. People never tielieve this story. Indeed at so great a distance of time I should be in clined to doubt it myself, but I cannot forget the subsequent intxTview with my dear old master in his study. Wo had a little private display of fireworks all to onrselves. Thus do most improbable effects result from remote causes. The Chinese by inventing fireworks were do ing a thing which, after long genera tions of time, rendered it impossible for mo to sit down with any comfort for a week. Idler.

Jot to ex ceed half a dozen counties voted down the equal rights proposition, and in most counties the majority in its favor was very snbstantiu. It was not a matter of good nature or gallantry on the part of the male voters of the state to bring aliout this result, but a matter of simple right and justice. Denver Tunes. COCXTT BCIMMNU.
