Then the tea Heckmea of Kenosha Car ried Runaway Couples to ttao Mag Is tratos and Broaght tbe lion of tho Cloth to Terau. . 55" . - There tf sorrow, discontent, even disgust, In the Ministerial association of Kenosha, Wis. JJot that the pastors have cause of complaint with the plritnal condition of their flocks, or that they are short on their salaries. These things are all right in the little city. lint the clergymen are sorrow ful because they must pay tribute to the hackman who is not of any of their Socks. Thin is what galls the men of the cloth. The hackman goes right on about his bast EDWARD GRIFFIS. ncoenf taking eloping and other couples to one or the other of the men of the cloth whom he has driven into submission. The situation may he mid to bo without parallel. It Is not every city that has from 10,000 to 13.000 Inhabitants and a lone hnrkmnn. It Is not every city of no mat ter whut Imputation so favorably situated by nntnro and the ennnivanoe of tho legls Intnrenf tho state in the mutter of mar rliigu licenses ns Kenosha. Sis miles south f mm the city limits no ninn can secure the performance of tho marriage ceremony un less he presents to the magistrate or mln Istcr n license duly Issned according to the luws of Illinois. In Kenosha he does not nend anything hot the presence and ex pressed assent of the bride elect and some officer qualified by law to make them one. Hence It Is that mnny couples nnable to evade the mandates of the law on the Illi nois side of the lino find It easy to assume conjugal bonds on the other. Edward Griffin hns the monopoly of the hark business In Kenosha, for he haa the depot privilege No other man hns the rlpht to back up to the platform, seize the Inuomlng travelers and takn them where they want to go. Hero Is where ho over held the clt'igy in the game recently won by him. GrltTln owns a number of carriages, and Ms rhnrgo for carrying runaway couples to the parwnngesi Is usually 91. The busi ness Is a rushing one, nnd Griffin observed the ministers were making a good deal of money out of the fares he brought them. He determined to have a share of tbelf fees. .So he lot It bo known among the mar rying officers of Kenosha that visiting couples In seiireh of the servioes of magis trate or minister would be taken to that man or men who would agree to compen sate the barknmn who delivered the load . and mndn it possible to earn a goodly fee thereby. Griffin pointed out to the officers that the law of Wisconsin, In omitting the j necessity for n license, hud not failed to I stipulate the amount of tho fee which could bo collected by law. This Is only 11 60. Now, he also shrewdly called to mind tho fact that It Is a poor kind of man who does not have (." for such a job. He therefore gave the marrying fraternity to nmlrnttand that he would be satisfied with a pcrevntogo of tho fees In ail rases where he carried the cuuplea to too bouse or office. For a time this was all right. The pTvaehrrs consented, and the hackman saw that they got all the business. The ma jority of those who visited the city pre frrrrd the m-Tvltvs of a minister anyway, and he had no difficulty In steering the business as he saw fit. This was a good thing for all concerned. It Increased Grtnin's receipts and made thoso of the prwecher more certain.

Kenosha haa two magistrates. . At this time Pennyfenther, J. P., and Schaefer, J. P., were hungry for fees which come of tying marriage knots. Griffin ae the mo nopolist of the industry was catered to by these wise men of the law. The ministers j were on a strike. The squires were men I of affairs and were willing to take half a 1 loaf in place of none. Then there was a diversion in favor of the squires. The clergy stuck It out for awhile. They tried to arouse public sentiment against Griffin and the magistrates, but without avail. The public refused to take sides, aad (be hackroan-magistrate alliance continued to do a thriving matrimonial business. Then the ministers capitulated, -.tit the wicked Jehn had them at bis mere) and refused to go back on the magistrate, who helped him out in hi contest with the clergy. Now he divides the business between the squires and the ministers, and the latter must perforce be content with a considerably diminished revenue from runaway marriages. PARIS NOT SO WICKED. Other Continental Capitals Bido Their Sims French Respectability. ' Police experts and those who devote their time to the study of crime and of so cial problems relating thereto do not hesi tate to express the very decided opinion that there is Immeasurably more social Cor ruption at Berlin, at Vienna, at St. Pe tersburg and even in Stockholm than at Paris, while Brussels has achieved for her self an undesirable prc-erainenoe over all the other cities of the world as the princi pal source of ail the literary filth which Beelzebub Inspires degenerate scribes to write for the contamination of Innocence and purity. But every one of these capi tals just mentioned makes a point of ob serving the maxim of Dc la Rochefou cauld and keeps, as far as possible; a veil of mystery over its misdoings, the scandal which Is printed In their newspapers re lating exclusively to occurrences abroad and to foreigners, a dlscroet silence being observed In connection with those happen ing nearer home. One may search the Berlin journals and those of Vienna in vain for any unsavory gossip concerning the German aristocracy or about the Aus trian great world, but you will find in their columns the fullest details concern ing the scandals of the hour in Madrid, London, Paris or St. Petersburg. Pari sian newspapers, on the other band, are apparently never so happy as when fouling their own nest and holding up the moral shortcomings of their own countrymen in an exaggerated form and in o far too high ly colored light to the gaze of the entire world. It will doubtless astonish many people In America to learn that nowhere In Eu rope does respectability count for so much as among the French middlo and lower classes, while the fashionable world of France attaches equal Importance to what It describes as "correctness" of conduct, speech and manner, says "Kx -Attache" in the New York Tribune. If Felix Faure and before him Casimir Perlcr and Sadi-Carnot were elected by tho suffrages of their countrymen to the chief magistracy of the republic, it was mainly because, of all the candidates for that high office, they were . held to ooma nearest to the national Ideal of respecta bility and ''correctness." These are two qualities which are invariably preferred by the French to brilliancy, to wit and to smartness of intellect, and nowhere are irregularities of conduct visited with more serious consequences to a publio man or viewed with great severity by the people at large than in France. Strict observance of the marriage ties is the rule In French families and not the exception, as people here seem to believe. Indeed the family relations are perhaps even more close and more intimate In France than in America, owing to the fact that there Is Infinitely less Independ enoe on tho part of the wife, the daughters and the sons. Coyote Farming la California. In many portions of California the coy ote Is a troublesome beast and plays havoc with domestio animals. Though It is to the Interest of the granger to annihilate the prowling varmints, and the state has for several years expended about $200,000 per year for scalps, coyotes are more nn merons now than ever. , At first the bounty was tl per scalp for slain coyotes, but the politicians finally got the figure raised to 15. At once the grangers saw that raising Infant coyote was to become a profitable Industry and set about encouraging their propagation. Keccnt Investigations show tnat regulnreoyote farms were established, and the "honest grangers" did such mriving nusiness tnnt their othet crops languished. In the course of a legislative investigation recently it was shown that In one county where 4,000 scalps had been turner; in during the year more than three fourths of them were fraudulent, it being proved that four or five scalps were made from each coyote skin; also that some of tho scalp vrcro those of foxes and wolves. The town official never having seen either of these animals, the deception was an easy matter, lor the coyote bears a strong re cnjul.-inoe to Doth ol them. .- '- Gives tho Devil Bis Dae. 1 German legend says the devil the Inventor of brandy. was This Silvcr-Platcd TEAJPCCa Floating Soap OI IbtototlMMMTWKULKC.

Putnam and John Gilpin rolled Into one neither made the time nor suffered the awful effects of mind and body. In the home of a prominent manufacturer In Pittsburg the victim is lying. His hair white from the awful mental strain. three of his libs are fractured, an ankle Is sprained, and both his arms are paralyzed to the elbow. For 6 hours and 28 min utes be rode a motocycle, traveling at rail road speed, sweeping over 200 miles of quiet Indiana roads In that time and set ting the whole country Into an uproar. This modern Gilpin came here some time ago with a party of English manu facturers, says the Pittsburg Post. Their avowed purpose was to buy up promising inventions from unsophisticated Yankees and make a fortune from tbem. Others had done it before, and several of the party bad turned a pretty penny that way. The one who bit off more tlian be ooold chew known la England as a keen business roan and a dead game sportsman, m owns a hereditary estate and writes him self "Baronet" with a big B. Shortly after landing the pnrty went np Into the Mesaba ore ranges near Lake Su perior. While there they happened to fall in with an agent of a Pittsburg manufac turer on the lookout for just such a party of speculators. The agent knew they would be interested in bicycles with the latest features and told them of the Inven tion of Byron Chapin, a young minister at Laporte Junction, Ind., who dabbled in mechanics. Chapin, be said,, had sev- JOHN QIUIX eral bicycles fitted np with remarkable motors. The result was that the party ran down to Loporte with the idea of buy ing the patents. The clew developed better than they ex pected. Chapin turned out to be a pleas ant faced young fellow, and he showed no hesitation in trotting out bis wheels. The wheels in appearance were like ordinary bicycles. They had 88 inch wheels, with patent nonpunctarable tires, also of Cha pln's invention. His motor was the most essential part. The machine was fitted with storage batteries of a new principle and an exceedingly compact generator or dynamo. When run 300 feet, enough en ergy would be stored by the momentum to keep the bicycle moving on ordinarily level ground, at the same timo a remarkable amount of electricity being stored up. To avoid an excess a switch to around the current at will was arranged to let off the surplus electricity. The whole arrange ment ntted In easily within the diamond frame, being geared from there to the hind axle. The prospective purchaser saw a good thing-and sized up the minister for easy game. It ended with the party mounting bicycles for a test about o'clock p. m. Through Marshall County, Ind., the roads are a cycler's paradise. The invent or and the party of Englishmen took the one following the line of the Michigan and Lake Erie railroad for the trial. The Britishers were in ecstasies. A push of 800 feet and they felt the power under them. With feet on the footrests and pipes in their mouths, the inevitable fleldglasses thrown over tbeir-sbouldcrs and a flask of spring water on the other side, they sailed along, kicking np too dust at a 15 mile gait, showing their rear wheels to every cycler on the road. Everything went swimmingly, and they began to dicker. The switches let off tha surplus electricity nicely and the inven tion was pronounced a "btooming" suc cess. Tha baronet especially was tickled to death. He began to experiment on tho capabilities of the machine, drawing ahead and then faffing back, but suddenly be seemed to take a notion to ran away from the party, and a faint shout came back to tbem and the sound of a terrific ham. All they ooold see of the baronet was a cloud of dost, witb a halo of tobacco smoke over it. , They got scared and let out their wheels to a dangerous speed, but couldn't get near him, and be disappeared around a bend. The inventor timidly sug gested that the switch may have got oat of order, and then they were soared. The switch had broksn off. Tbe bar onet found himself astride his bobby and gaining momentum every moment. ' His seooUections of Loot whirlwind rida ars far from definite as yet, ana bis physicians will not let bins talk of it. What his friends know haa been eked out gradually and Is lodged from the terrino state of the country through which the baronet careered. The whole county was excited as tt never had been before. The party hastened on as fast as they oould go. Country people lined op along tho road, Jeered and whistled at them, yelling t "Git a move on I Ye're gettln beat." From wbtch they Inferred that their friend was still going. Laporte is about SO miles from Laporte Junction, and the dusty party hove la sight about dusk. A gang at wheelmen met them on the outskirts with Inquiries as to the start and destination, and as surances that they stood no show. Tha baronet had gone through like fall blooded meteor 40 minutes before. He made the ran In IX- hoars. They asve It no and watted for a train, intend ing to bead him oft at Stillwell, a town 0 miles farther on. -nun In the meantime the baronet was reel ing oft miles, hanging on like grim death, his motor gathering power with every turn, bis eyes sticking oat and his hair beginning to show gray spots. Flapping and pounding his ribs, the flask of spring water and fieldglasses set him naif crazy. Dogs ran out to bark at him, bat be bad disappeared before they ooold get their laws working. A few minor runaways are all the casualties reported from this stretch of 40 miles, wbicb was covered In 00 minutes. Between Stillwell and Kankakee the road measures SO miles. The baronet cov ered the distance In 60 minutes. Kankakee prides itself on being modern. It is a town of about 5,000, and it baa a bicycle policeman. The latter is a consci entious official, and always arrests scorch ers without lanterns. By the time the baronet's steed reached the west end of the town It was dusk. John Davis, the afore said copper, saw him coming down, and be promptly made after him. Davis' recol lections are of receiving a tremendous Jolt in the eye and seeing an aged man appar ently, with smutty face and glaring eyes, shoot by like the wind. The fleldglasses had hit him. Davis reported to headquar ters that the devil had gone through town on a wheel which spit ore and acted like a live animal. The baronet 's friends had not forgotten him in the meantime. They had missed him at Stillwell and decided to bead birn UP TO DATE. off by telegraph. A message was sent all along the line to "stop a man on a wheel. At Walkerton, the next place beyond Kankakee, the telegraph operator reported that a bicycle thief was en route there. and although It was already dark, two officers were sent out the pike to stop him Thoy did not succeed. As the I mm net. ap proached the little group one of the police men grabbed at him. while the other pre sented a revolver. The haronet went on without looking. The policeman who at tempted to seize him got a whack from the flask of spring water and Is raftering from concussion oi the brain. The other police man ened. "fetop thief!" His revolver went off, but never touched the baronet. All through the S mites to Tvner Cltv the baronet had It easier and scattered less devastation. He was nearing the mile a minute trait and flashed through Tyner City In 80 minutes, upsetting a party of loafers as be pass-d, and Plymouth was only 30 miles away. At 0:30 o'clock the chief of police received the following mes sage, signed by the name of tbe young In ventor, wnom ne Knew well: "Stop bicyclist. Will enter city from tho west sido on pike, on motocycle. and machinery beyond his control. Stop at ail nazarus wun barricade of soft ma terlal." Tho famous modern, fin de stccV, np to date Jonn unpin ended his rtdo Jarre-. Chief Mannering and his assistant held a short consultation and determined to take effective measures. The chief bad an Id. -a which will make him famous. The in habitants of nearly honsrs were aroused A few minutes sufficed to expaln. All the featber beds in tbe vicinity were collected. n urn nnge neap they were woven Into a barricade across the pike.

It was all over ton anlcklo to mmm bend. The watchers at Plymouth remember bearing a far away whizzing. Then there was a blinding flare, a omell of burned feathers, and the baronet lit on tbe barrt cade at exactly n g by the clock, almost unrecognizable. The wheel, like tbe one Horse shay, collapsed Into its oriainal ele ments, while the electricity went off like a lightning bolt, burning the barricade to asnes. x ne naranet was sarrted to a ccar by drag store, where but lalories were aev eertained.

The Ranche del Matsos belongs to the Mojae family. Macedonio was Just a plain eowboy. Be could ride anything that wore hoofs, but any other eowboy on the Matsos range could do that.

Macedonio Fransto Is only 17 years old, bat that la old enough In Mexico to make a boy a man. Be waa also old enough to fall In love with tbe pretty daughter of bit employer. Anita Mojaa Is IS years old and beauty according to Mexican idmls. It wss not surprising that Macedonio, the eowboy, should fall In love with her, nor possibly waa It remarkable that she should be interested in tbe dashing young va qnero wltu tbe eagle face. But those things ere arranged for young people In Mexico without their being troubled about It, and the views of the rest of the Mojas family did not coincide with those of tbe girl and her cowboy lover. Anita's brothers bad, undertaken to ar range her life for her. A companion of theirs, Ramon Kane hex, tbe eon of a proa perons Chile farmer, was their choice for a brother-in-law.
