Much of the Richness is due to the I:inc Quality of materials used: A FARM FOR A DRINK. Gave CIO Arrm of Fine Laud lor Ilucket of Water. It was about 50 years ago, acording i to ex-LIetit.-Goy. George T. .Tcsfor. 1 that si crowd of frontiersmen from off ! the I5ra7.os came to Corsica na on a trading expedition. Corsicana at that ; time was not as great a town as It U I now, elnco It threatens to rival tin? most productive oil region of Pennsyl vania, but was a typical frontier vil lage or trading post. The grandfather 1 of Gov. Jester was a Methodist circuit ; rider and lived at that time In Corsi j eana. lie occupied a two-story double j log house. Ills house was a rendez I vous for people from far and near, who ! came trading. In those days land cer- tiflcates were used as circulating me dium, as money was rarely seen. 1 On one occasion a whlskv-drlnklncr character from offtheBrazos arrived in nown, pot on a drunk, and at night was put to bod In the second story of the Jester mansion. About 1 o'clock In the morning he awoke with a terri ble thirst. No water was In the room and he couldn't find the way down stairs. Sticking his head out of tin window, he saw some men asleep in the yard. He called to them to bring him a drink of water, but no one an swered him. A second and a thud time he called with no response. Fiu nlly he yelled out: "One of you fellows bring me a drink af water and I'll give you V,'20 stents of land." This aroused one of the sleepers, who called back that he wouldn't climb those steps for PJO acres of land, and the offer was raised to (WO acres. The man under the tree drew a bucket of water and lugged It upstairs and offered a dlpperful to the toper, but he pushed It aside. "Give It to me out of the bucket like si horse," he said, and he put about half the contents of the bucket under his belt In those days a Texan's word was his bond, and this fellow kept his word about the land. Next morning he made Ids benefactor a deed to GIO acres of Hrsizoa bottom land. This land still belongs to the descendants of the water-carrier, and Is one of the lluest farms to be found In all Texas. It is now worth from $35 to $10 per acre. A party of Americans returning from Europe were comparing the methods to obtain money employed by the beggars of different nations, "I find the Neapolitan beggars the most difficult to deal with," said one of the gentlemen. "They are rich in de formities whlch they lay bare, or they writhe as If In an agony of starvation, rubbing their stomachs, with howls of 'Macaroni!' until you are forced to empty your pockets." "I found it easy to close my pockets and heart against the European men dicants," said another. "It was the Swiss who took all my spare cash. They never lagged, but they crowded alongside of the diligence with clean and merry faces, holding out fruit or hits of rock or flowers to sell, or turn ing handsprings for some distance be side us. They wero Irresistible." "It was the Tuscans who vanquish ed me," said a third. "Those laughing, soft-voiced Florentine beggars, who when you refused to give them money, bowed and said, 'Another day, perhaps, slgnor? God be with you till then!' and turned away smiling." The Americans all agreed that then? was too much of a "Stand and deliv er!" air In the manner of the working man of England when expecting hi tip. "Our people," they said, ".spoiled them by giving too large gratuities. Now If they expected less, they would get more." , "The Irish people," said one lady, "now as si rule turn a look of mel.tn choly suspicion on the world; but their oeggars are still ready with qulck.wittyj answers w hen money Is goven them. I gave an old woman In Cork some pen nies. Mny the Virgin drop good luck down on you!' she cried. Then I threw her si shilling. Ah!' she shrieked, may God rain Ills blessings on you!"

"In women we trust" seems to be the motto of Iteattie, Kaa., and If the city ver decides upon a coat of arms It will In all likelihood be engraved upon it, says the Denver Times. They have "petticoat governmenf'Mn the pretty and thriving town and seem to like It. The mayor, flvo councllmen and the city clerk are women, and, though they never held otllce before and only took up the reins of government one month ago, they have shown such a capacity to comprehend the public's needs and ability to fulfill them as to assure them a long reign. The first thing Mayor Totten and the city council did on assuming the reins of government was to tell the saloons to close. They demurred, but obeyed. The men, when In power, had always declared It was Impossible to suppress the saloons. The women have showed them how to do It. The same thing was done with the gambling dives and now the male resident of Ueattle who wants to drink hard liquor or sit In a little game of draw has to go to some other community to gratify his Inclina tions. The streets have been cleaned, also, and are being kept In that condi tion. The women feel that they are on trial and are determined to Justify their selection. Mayor Totten Is a serious-minded woman, with a quiet vein of irony. Sho parts her gray hair in the middle, af ter the good old fashion of our grand mothers. Her husband, Charles Tot ten, operates a large farm near Beat tie. They have three children living. New York was her birthplace and out of the natural genius of New York pol iticians for government she thinks that fate has led her to Income the female Croker of 15esittle. She removed, when a young girl, from New York to Illi nois, where she taught school, and lat er came to Kansas. lUJ'td by the German. The people of Coburg-Gotha are having a hard time in getting some one to rule over them. It is now an nounced that the Duke of Connaught, Queen Victoria's third son, has de clined the honor in favor of the little Duke of Albanj-, one of the Queen's grandsons, and that the people of the German duchy are not pleased at the prospect. Leopold, Duke of Albany, has always been delicate, and the Germans think they ought to have a healthy English prince if they are to have any. The young Duke, who Is now only 15 years old, Inherited a weak constitution from his father. Before his death, however, he had shown much ability as a scholar, and in 1S7S he was elected president of the Koyal Society of Literature. In IS" he visited Canada and the United States. His death occurred In 1M. two months before the birth of his son. MONUMENT TO HIMSELF. It is not often that one hears of such self-complacence as that of Ches- ter Bedell of Berlin, O., who has erect ed a statue In his own honor In the Berlin Center cemetery. Mr. Bedell Is an avowed freethinker, and for over a quarter of a century his time has been much taken up with spreading his anti-religious views and lighting lawsuits against relatives. Having ar rived at an advanced age, he is deter mined that posterity shall remember his contests.. Hence the statue. Hound to Go to AVur. Major Whipple, of the Second Mas sachusetts regiment had been a soldier and an ollicer" In the civil war, and la the meantime had seen much service In the Massachusetts mllltla. When the Spanish war broke out he wished to go to the front with his regiment. But all the officers, as well as men, had to undergo a physical examination at Worcester. Major Whipple was a man of great bodily strength and per fect health and activity but the lape of time had left him a little deficient In the matter of teeth. An examining surgeon proposed to exclude him on that account. Then tue major, who could not stand being shut out from the chance to serve his country in such a nemer gency, waxed wroth. Ix)ok here," he exclaimed, Tra go ing down there to shoot Spaniards! I don't propose to eat them!" We do not know what answer, by word of mouth, the surgeon made to this protest, but the fact Is that the major went to the war and distin guished himself In It, even eating his share of hardtack with the rest, aud escaping all the illness that fell to the lot of younger men.
