We submit that when our represents lives voted us dry by proxy we then and there became permanently dry. We object to a vote of the people Ours Is a representative form of gov ernment and, in the similar words of our revolutionary forefathers,"Prohl hlUonwithout representation Is tyr anny.” Prohibition by representation has been duly adopted and pdoved it self an immense success. The jails and prisons are empty, crime is no more, the worker is sab fafied, bitterness has gone out of the hearts of men, and the milleneum iorever outlawed, it is deadly poison and therefore only permitted under the law to be usd for religious and medical purposes. Intelligent people understand these truths. Why then the necessity of a poll on the matter forever deter mined and prohibited? We object to mere talk regarding that which is not, w e object to peo ple being interrogated with reference in anegation, and above all we ob, ject to the government’s unjustified •chaim that it is spending hundreds of millions off dollars of fthe taxpayers’ money .in order to suppress the liquor traffic when it is without existence. We also object to the wet propo ganda that our government is engaged in selling liquor on the high seas. It is a matter of common knowledge, and statistics prove that it makes peo ple seasick to inbibe w’hile on the ocean, and we know the government would not be so rude to its passen gers for a few paltry dollars in pro-, lit Jokes on theis subject should be frowned upon. They are unconsti tutional and un-American. We have a dry sense of humor. Besides, this is no joking matter. *And the stately ships sail on to their haven under the hill, Unloading bonded -goods to compete with the products of the still” Genius Not Success Requisite. There are two kinds of success. One is the very rare kind that comes to the man who has the power to do. Fhat Is genius. Only a very limited amount of the success of life comes io persons possessing genius. The average man who Is successful —the average statesman, the average pub lic servant, the average soldier, who wins what he calls great success—ls not a genius. He Is a man who has merely the ordinary qualities.—Theo dore Roosevelt. When the Heart Stops.

A little light flattery, no mean arti fice in these days, had been bestowed upon Mrs. Smith on account of her ability to use either hand Indifferent ly hi the execution of her duties, which were charing. “Lor’ bless, you. ma'am,” said the genial soul, not with out condescension, “I’ve always been like that. I’m aspidistras.”—London nt-Blts. Maidenly Caution. ”Oh. yes, we are engaged to be mar ried ; but I fear she has not that utter confidence In me that comes with per fect love.” “Why so?” “Well, when a fellow looks back and sees her test ing the diamond In her engagement ring on the window pane, don’t you think be has good cause to feel a bit dubious?” Determined.

ENDED DREAM OF WEALTH Humorous Side to Alchemy Fiasco Which Was at First Taken Quite Seriously. Alchemy—the science of transmut ing baser metals into gold—no longer commands the serious attention of learned men. although it was at the basis of many of the scientific inves tigations of the ancients. It has not been given respectful consideration since the famous fiasco which termi nated the efforts of Professor Semler of Germany, in the latter part of the Nineteenth century. Semler experimented with a com pound known as the "Salt of Life,” the discovery of a certain Baron Hlrschen, which was supposed to be the universal medicine. He left a so lution of this composition in warmth for several days and, on examination, was astonished to discover in it some thin scales of a yellowish metal which, when tested, proved to be pure gold. His discovery caused immense excite ment, which terminated In a legal In quiry of Semler's claims. It finally brought to light that an old and devoted servant of Semler’s had been slipping small pieces of gold leaf into the solution slyly, and with no idea bfeyond gratifying his beloved master. One of the great laughs of the affair was furnished by the discovery, dur ing one of the tests, of a sort of brass composition in the jar, Instead of gold. It turned out that this had been placed there by the servant's wife, who had been intrusted with the money to purchase the gold leaf. She had procured brass instead, spending the balance of the money for her fa vorite beverage. BIRD’S “NEST’ REALLY RAFT Water-Hen Prefers Floating Home- Classed by Some Naturalists as a Land Creature. You know the green weed that grows in great patches on any rocky shore. We call it seaweed, but really It is a land plant which for some strange reason has taken to the sea. The water-hen is one of the most Interesting examples of such curious transfers. Everyone knows this bird, with its red beak, its long dangling legs, and its white tail. As you walk along the bank of a stream, it starts up suddenly with a fearful fuss, flap ping its wings and beating the water with its feet. Finally it manages to rise into the air, and moves off with a lumbering flight. Though It is more at home on the water than in the air, or on dry land, the water-hen is really a land bird. Apparently It discovered centuries ago that food was easier to obtain in ponds and streams, and decided to adopt an aquatic life. Its feet are not webbed, but it has learned to swim and dive as well as duck. The water-hen’s nest consists of a raft as big as the top of a barrel, and Is made of rushes and twigs an chored to the stems of water plants. Sometimes It is not moored at all, and the parents follow It about as it drifts over the surface of a pond.— London Tit-Bits. Peace Convention of 1861. The peace convention is the name given to a convention held in Wash-* Ington on the Invitation of Virginia in February, 1861, just before the outbreak of the Civil war, for the pur pose of arranging a peaceful settle ment of the difficulties between the North and South. Fourteen free states and seven slave states were repre sented and each state was allowed only a single vote. Ex-President Tyler presided over the convention. A committee upon whiqh each of the 21 states was represented submitted a report recommending the adoption of certain specified amendments to the federal Constitution. The report 1 was adopted by the convention. The amendments urged generally favored i the South, but were not wholly satis- ; factory to either section and were not favorably received by either house of congress. Cooking for a King. Next to Yellowstone lake the highest navigable body of water in North America is Lake Patzcuaro, in the Mexican state of Michoacan, which has been called "a crystal gobiet held high in the cool grip of the Sierras.” The town of Patzcuaro was the seat of tlie old Tarascan kings, and in its plaza women and boys still sit beside their tires at night, selling vegetables in sacks, says the New York Evening Post. Fishermen from the huts that cling to the steep sides of the lake Islets are picturesque figures in the streets. Once when a great king moved from Patzcuaro across the lake to Iguazzio—where now are pyramids and a ruined amphitheater—he left bls royal kitchen behind, but not wishing to change his diet, he had a train of very fit slaves carry his meals 18 miles around the lake shore from the oyens at the court. Alligators and Crocodiles. Alligators differ from crocodiles mainly in having relatively broad snouts and by the circumstance that as a rule the first and fourth tooth on each side of the lower jaw euter into pits in the upper jaw, whereas those of crocodiles slide outside of the jaw and are visible.
