They Had It t the Democratic County Convention I.nut Naturdity. . Tho Democratic county convention was held In tho city of Ionia last Satur day and according to all reports there wa9arlght lively time. N. H. Hayes was chosen chairman and John J. Me Kenna socretary. Evervthlnc went smoothly enough until after the election of the delegates to the stato convention at Port Huron. Just beforo tho nominations wero made F. J. Lulck of Holding read a resolu tion gagging tho delegates to bo sent lo Port Huron. Under It, every man chosen must walk up to tho rack and bo O K'd by tho convention. If he would not take oath that ho would vqto for Bryan, a Hryanlto candidate for vice-president, and tho Chicago plat form, he must bo turned down. Delegate Hitchcock objected vigor ously to tho gag rulo and moved to table It, another delegate roasted the gold democrats as a note of warning. Still another thought perhaps Hryan might need tho "gold bugs" of the democratic faith In his struggle this fall. Another said "wo worked every thing for harmony" and got less of it. Finally tho motion to lay on table was lost, and tho resolution was carried by a closo vote. Then the reading of tho list of dele gates was started, in an attempt to pass them along without qualifying. Luick jumped up and wanted them O KM individually. The scrap began again for another half hour. Finally Sam Stowell sug gested to withdraw tho gag in tho in terest of "harmony." This only added coals to the lire. Delegate Davenport said the resolution was all right, and had been voted upon and carried, and could not bo withdrawn. Another delegate pleaded for har mony. "We want votes," he said, and apparently not the gag, while Nesbitt wanted "a hero" for vice-president (Schley), and Luick didn't want hero." Finally Luick was persuaded to with draw the resolution "in the interest of peace" and the dove of peace once more settled down upon the assembly. Maudo Dakin Jackson, 20, Lyons. Wm.

A Story ot Amon CammlnKi, One summer a number of years ago Amos ('uinmlngs passed two weeks on a pilot boat and took Ernest Jar- rold, the author of 'Mickey Finn Idylls," with him for company. One day a great storm arose, and the pilot boat was tossed about on the waves like a chip. Every minute a wave would dash over the deck and threaten to carry everything away and swamp the boat. Cuuimings and Jarrold were lu the little cabin, the former lying In a buuk Intently reading a book on the French revolution. Jarrold poked his head out to look at the storm, when a mountain of sea water fell with a boom on the deck and filled his eyes with spray. The boat gave a fearful lurch and careened until It seemed that she must turn completely over. "This Is awful, Amos," said Jarrold. I'm going to put on a life preserver, for I don't think the boat can stand It many minutes longer." "Oh, keep quiet, and let me read, Mickey," said Cummlngs, never lifting his eves from the page. "The men on this boat draw a regular salary to keep her atloat." Saturday Evening Post. Appropriate.
