adjourned There were three active
candidates for the nomination in the
populist convention and none among
the democrats The democrats cau
cused in the morning and agreed to
keep out of the fight and give the pop

selves The candidates were Heath
of Sheridan with 17 votes solid Mutz
of Kejafmaiwithli votes to his
credit and Beinert of Cherry with 9
votes The remaining votes were free
lances Reinert pulled out early and
Cherry and Dawes cast 17 votes for

then became fast and furious

Prof Pinkerton is one of the best
institute instructors that ever visited
this county He doesnt tell the teach

think -for themselvesand that is the
main thing He sometimes does rriot
express an opinion - during a whole
period of instruction but before he is
through each of the teachers has a few
new thoughts
One of the best things we have
heard tor some time was the talk on
Foes Raven as delivered by Prof
Watsorr Tuesday afternoon The
teachers received many1 new ideas
about this poem from learning how it
was written and what the central idea
darkest despair -is the points being
brought out one by one as the stanzas

A Experiences In Fish
ing While t Anchor
A ffroup of officexstood on the
the moititoryT erPdf as the ves
sel lay ia the Ilorgeshoetlown at Sandy
Hook one afternoon just before the re
cent trial of the ships guns at sea and
discussed whether there was time to
fish from the deck for awhile before
dinner The discussion brought forth
a lot of naval fishing experiences
Whenthfcgristof stories had nearly run
out an officer who had been silent up
to that time cleared his throat and
Isuppose some of Jypti -will laugh
and sneer at my statement but I want
to declare that Ihaveseen fish that
could and did catch bullets We have
all heard of magicians who catch bul
lets fired at them by members of a
squad I can go that better bysaying
that have seen fish that really did
catch bullets fired in a volley into the
water from a It was on
my latest cruise I had just been or
dered to the ship The day that I ar
rived my fellow officers said that they
had part of the crew drawn up for re
volver practice At the close of the
practice a volley rWas fired at an imag
inary enemy1
Later in the day the officers began
to fish for pleasure and several fish
were caught In- each of them was
found a bullet from the revolversrthat
had been fired that afternoon Of
course I snorted at the idea and asked
why they told such things when there
were no marines n board They then
said they would try it again- The squad
was brought up and another volley was
fired into the water We all went to
fishing right away In less than half
an hour we had two fine bass We cut
them open and there were the bullets
Of course I saw what had happened
The bullets were skipping across the
water and finally sank after having
lost their force- They were bright and
the fish darted for them as they do for
anything bright that goekjjy Never
theless I had to see it to be convinced
Certainly we believe what you have
told us spoke up a fellow officer of the
Terror for weve had these odd ex
periences in fishing from a man-of-
war Still theres one thing you
havent explained Youhavent told
usfiow you sent word to those fishes to
come up to the ship and be caught
