Ex-Representative Gi won, of Mary

When the idea of the clerkship first
came into Mr. Gibson's mind it was re
ceived with some doubt. Did it com
port with the dignity o:- a member of
the Fifty-first congress t announce him
self a candidate for the clerkship of the
Fifty -second? That question Mr. Gib
son considered for some time before he
acted. Some of his friends were con
sulted by him, and they gave varjing
advice. At length Mr. Gibson applied
to Judge Culberson.
"What's that you say, Gibson?"
drawled th great commrner of Texas, as
if lie had not rightly understood the
"1 want to ask, juuVe," replied the
Marylander, -if you thick it would be
inconsistent with the ii,'iity of a mem
ber of the Fifty-first congress to become
a candidate for clerk of 1 lie next house?-'
"ii m.' said Judge Cullierson. as he
pondered on the question. Then he de
livered himself slowly atid solemnly:
"Gibson, in my time I've seen an ex
member of congress cl -aning spittoons
at the other end of the C tpitol. I've also
seen an c:;-member of congress parking
seeds at . 1.23 a day over at the agricul
tural deoirtnient. Am", down in my
country I've known an ex-congressman
to go around exhibiting a stnd horse.
No, Gibsou, I don't thin i there will be
any sacri:ice of dignity in your becom
ing a cjc.idi.late for clerk." St. Louis

were brought in and carved by Porter

wielded by a deft ham ; the slices fell
