McAlvay. the republican candi dates for justices of tbe supreme court, are both candidates for re election. Justice Carpenter is com pleting his first full term and Jus tice McAlvay is ncaring the end of tbe short term for which he was elected two and a half years ago, Thor records are such that even tbe party opponents of Justices Carpen- terand McAlvay seriously consider ed a suggestion made by one of their own number, to endorse the repub lican candidates and make no oppos ing nominations. The suggestion was put aside becauso it was not re garded as a good party move, and not because it was an endorsement which Justices Carpenter and Mc Alvay did not well deserve. Under tbe cireuiiiKtancen every republican who can possibly reach the polls on the coining first day of April should count it a pml'cge to vote for his party's candidates for supreme court justices, and those not republicans can know that in voting for Carpen J ler and McAivuy Ihey are providing for the continued service of men whose work and worth the entire slate is glad and proud to uckuowl edge. . DIDN'T KNOW OF THE BOY. But Man Who Married Widow Had to Pay the Penalty. "It seems very hard that I should be called upon to pay for the boy," was the lament of an elderly man who was summoned under curious circum stances at Lambert, England. The proceedings were taken by the Industrial school's officer with the view of obtaining an order for contribution towaid the maintenance of the son of a woman whom tbe de fendant married two years ago. The boy,, it was said, had been sent to the school before the marriage took place, and the defendant now pro tested that he had never seen the lad, and was quite unaware of his ex istence at the time of the marriage. "You have heard of the danger, of marrying widows?" remarked Mr, Hopkins, the magistrate. "Unfortunately, I know It," replied the defendant. "It seems hard lines, I know," said the magistrate, "to call upon you to pay for the boy. But men do Buch foolish things, f Two years ago you didn't mind marrying this woman. "Yes, sir, but I didn't know what she was then," was the reply. An order was made for the payment of 50 cents a week. CLAY EQUAL TO EMERGENCY.. How "Great Commoner" Satisfied Disgruntled Constituent. One of the best stories told of Hen ry Clay relates to his dealing with an old Kentucky mountaineer who ac costed the "great commoner" after one of his speeches and said: "Well, Henry, I have always voted for you before, but I can't do It this time." 'Why, now, what's the trouble?" ask ed Clay. "I don't like your vote on the bank bill," replied Tom. "Is that all; I have sttlted you generally, have I not?" "Oh, yes, always but that time, but I don't like that vote." "You think I was honest in giving It, don't you? "Yes, but you made a mistake." Say, Tom, you are a hunter, and sometimes your gun misses fire; what do you do then throw it away." "No, Just pick the flint and try it again." "Of course you do, Tom, and all I ask of you is to treat me as well as you do your old gun. Will you not do it?" "Yes, by thunder, Henry, I will! I'll try you again." Uniform of Chinese Students. The establishment of government schools in China and the equipment of students in uniforms Is furnishing a market for military clothing. According to the British consul at Wuchow, 60 of these schools have bean opened in that prefecture alone. The uniform consists of a coat and trousers of foreign cut, with brass buttons and peak caps, and shoes of foreign patern. In the strictly military schools khaki is worn. All the uniforms seen appear to be of British cloth, but there is a rule, which is evidently ig nored, that only native material be used. Caps, buttons and braid all come from Japan. The shoes sare said to be of Hong kong manufacture, but a very inferior kind is made locally of native leather. Stunner for tho Manager. When Manager Henderson was In possession of a certain metropolitan theater a would-be patron, obviously well bred, but rather too well primed by stimulant, called at the box office and demanded an orchestra seat His wish was regretfully declined. But he wanted a more precise reason, which was not forthcoming, and at last Manager Henderson was sum' moned. Pressed for the reason of his refusal, the latter finally said: "Well, if you must know, It is because you are drunk!" Unabashed, the visitor replied: "Why, of course I'm drunk! D'ye think I'd hie come to your hie blessed theater If I wasn't drunk?" 8trenuous Treatment of Children. A Milwaukee physician, Dr. John B. Worden, has adopted this strenuous treatment to prepare his babies for the rigors of life, and up to the pres ent his methods have been abundantly Justified by their success, says an ar ticle In Good Health for October.
