Fifteen hundred people witnessed the tussle, and Manager Stechhan is hap- nv in the knowledge that his "un- i - - known" beat the champion. It is said that the largest tract of wild and unknown land in the United SUteB lies west of the Olympic range of mountains. It is from 20 to CO miles wide and 100 miles long.

Ella Wheeler sings: -On the white throat of the useless pas sion, That scorched ray soul with its burn ing breath, I gathered my fingers in murderous fashion, Aud drew them close iu a grip of death' And she saya farther on, "I meant to strangle it, then and there." Now, that was right If "a useless passion" should come around scorching our soul in July, too we should think it was about time for the governor to call out the troops or the tire depart ment, we wouldn't care very much which. And if we could get in on its throat, we'd throttle the thing till its mind was gone or the fire was out. Ella was right Heroic treatment is the only thiug for a useless passion. We knew a man once who kept one in his store. Not one of the white throat kind they're the worst but a square-necked brindle with tan marks over the eyes, and it got loose ono night, rubbed off its muzzle, and got out and bit two policemen before they could wake up. But, then, "useless . passion" that the cago poetess tells us about more lives than a cat, out of ils irrave and "stood by her bed till the early morn ing,'" and. 'Its throat was rod whore my hands had held it. And hot as hades Its burning breath ; And I. said, the moment my eyes be held it, A love like this can know no death.' Just think of that a "useless pas sion" hanging around your bed, with a white throat freckled with red finger-marks, and a breath like a blue head match or a blast from the onion bed! Why, that sort of thing is not right The press ought to call public SJQRE attention to it; the pulpit should not dose its eves airainst an evil that stalks at noonday in our very midst, breathing around ice cream gorges un til the freezers blow up. And if tho government is too feeble or too cor- upt to grapplo with this monstrous wrong, Jet us orgaaize vigilance com mittecs, and, with the strong right arm of the people's voice, drive back this haunting breath that throws its awful shadow in discordant echoes down the long corridor of the of time.
