BEN BUTLEB'S BAGF.
He Oould Hot Speak Against Sleek
Cattle and Pretty Girls.
"I was up at a state fair at Man
chester, N. H.," said ex-governor War
montb, of Louisiana, the other day,
"away back in 1873, writes a corres
pondent of the Washington Post. "It
was tho usual sort of a New England
fair an agricultural horse-trot with
brass band and political speeches.
Ben Butler was up for the speech.
The andience was on the grand stand,
one side tho race track, and Ben But
ler and the rest of us big guns in the
judges' stand on the other side.
' '.Fellow citizens of my native
state,' " began the bold Ben, 4I shall
address yon to-day on the subject of
federal, state and municipal taxa
tion.' "Butler sailed along and had got
well warmed up, when a corn-fed
farmer drove along tho track with
twenty yoke of oxen and a cart piled
up with corn, pnmpkins and other
farm products and a couple of bnxotn
country girls on top. He was proud
of that turn out and took his time
getting by the grand Btand. Of
course. Butler bad to stop till it
got out of the way. Then he began
again and warmed np once more. By
that time another farmer had got
jealons of the impression the first one
bad made, and he came gee-hawing
down the track with thirty yoke 01
cattle and a still bigger cart loaded
away up with bigsquashes and pump
kins and four slashing-looking red
cheeked girls on his load, each one
holding a red ear of corn in her hand.
Well, that outfit made a big sensa
tion on the grand stand and at
traded more attention than Jim Bob
inson driving a twenty-horse circus
chariot would. Of course, Butler
had to slop again. He was getting
" 'Can't this thing be stopped' he
asked, 'I don't want to be headed off
by every Jake in New Hampshire
who wants to make a holy show of
"So some one was sent off np the
track- to atop further interruptions,
and Butler got along as far as fifthly,
and was getting red ii the face, when
what should come along the track
but another caravan. This one had
nearly forty yoke of oxen, every one
a seven footer, as sleek as bulls and
grand stand knew them all and
went wild with delight. To say that
Butler was mad would be useless.
He got his eyes almost wide open.
" 'If another one of those infernal
cnttle shows comes along.' said he
Til leave the platform. I will be
switched it I'm going to be broken in
upon every ten minutes.'
"This time a messenger was seut
up the track, who headed off all the
rest of tho procession, and Bntler
went along swimingly forn quarter of
an hours longer, when a big brass
band struck up back of the grand
stand. It was a visiting band from
somewhere tip stale; it thought it
was some pumpkins, and it just put
in nnd blew for dear- life. Lord,
what a noise it madel But Bntler
wasn't going to be 'phased' by a big
brass band, even if two-thirds of the
crowd were craning their necks for a
sight of tho musicians. Just then the
fire-bells over in Manchester set up
clang-whanging, and every engine in
-the city paraded out into the fair
grounds. Down the track they tore
at full speed, one after another, fires
up, smoke rolling ont of the stacks,
bells clanging, and horses laying
their bellies almost on the ground,
while every boy in Manchester chased
along behind, yelling like demons,
and those on the grand stand tum
bling over each othor to see where the
"That was the end of it Butler
tore up his notes and danced all
over the platform, blue with rage,
and swearing like a trooper, while I
climbed down behind tho stand where
I conld laugh."

A Strange Coincidence.
It will be remembered that a few
days ago manager 0. J. Smith, of the
O. R. ic N. Co., received a dispatch
from Lillian McGarry, dated at
Johnstown, Pa., asking about James
McGarry, who drifted ashore on a
life raft from tho ill-fated steamer
Alaskan. She supposed him to be
dead instead of which he is alive and
well. Mr. McGarry now has tele
graphed to the point nearest Johns
town, to learn if Lillian McGarry was
among those who lost their lives in
the great flood which swept that city
to destruction. That these circum
stances should be so peculiarly allied
to each other is strangely coinci
dental. Telegram, 1.
