An old circus man tells this Incident as one of the narrow escapes he bad iu the show business. He had trained lions,, zebras, leopards, rhino you know and all sorts of beasts of prey, but this, he says, was his narrowest escape. It was wheu he was running n dime museum in Milwaukee. One dny a mild mannered Russian came out of the railway station with n valise in bis baud. He was a heavily bearded mau and with shaggy hands and arms like George Esau. He hunt ed up a cabmnu and Inquired modest ly, "'Where Is the dime museum?" The cabman told him and then asked, "Want to ride up?" "Yes," tho bearded stranger told him quietly, almost bashfully. "I'm to be employed up there. I'm the wild man." "The nnrrow escape," say the ex elrcus man, "lny In the fact that no newspaper man heard the man's re mark and that the cabman was an Englishman, with no sense of humor, who never thought to repeat It."

It wns the first new state to have the political honor of namlug the vice presidential candidate (Joseph Lane) for one of the great parties In the first year of Its statehood. A little girl of four years, having written a letter consisting simply of Bhang lines, asked her papa to post It "What did you say?" asked papa. "I don't know," said Rosamond. "Why, you wrote It!" said papa. "Yes, but I did not read It," was the Innocent reply. SPENCER F. EDDY. New Minister to Servla and His Uti usucl Romance. Spencer F. Eddy, who was recently appointed by President Roosevelt as envoy extraordinary and minister plenipotentiary to Roumanbt aud Ser vla, will combine with his duties In that capacity the work of American diplomatic agent In Bulgaria. , Mr. Eddy baa been called the best dressed American in Europe and is one of the handsomest. He was born lu Chicago thirty-four years ago and educated at Harvard and lu Germany. He speaks several foreign languages fluently aud is a born diplomat He was private secretary to the late John Hay when tho latter was ambassador at the court of St. James and later was made third secretary of legation. Subse quently be became second secretary of legation at Paris and from there was promoted to be first secretary' at Constantinople, serving as charge d'af faires during periods when Important matters were under consideration and distinguishing himself by bis able conduct In bis post. He gained a rep utation for ability to deal with diffi cult questions through his connection with the negotiations regarding the res'-ue aud ransom of the captured Missionary, Miss Ellen Stone. From the 'iurkisu capital he was sent to St. . i.r va tit I 1 r A J BPENCEIl V. EDDY. Petersburg and was charge d'affaires there In the absence of Ambassador Meyer during a critical Juncture of the war botweeu Russia and Japau. An episode lu Mr. Eddy's career at the time of the Victorian Jubilee of 1807 was an adventure he had during a Loudon fog wltb a fair Russian prin cess lu which be saved her from being trodden on by horses In the streets of the English metropolis wheu the mist was so thick it was Impossible to find one's way. The Incident was made the foundation for a romance entitled "Love Iu a Fog," which attracted at tention at the time. It wus rumored that Mr. Eddy was much smitten with the beautiful Russian of his adventure but, however that may be, no nuptial ceremony resulted, and Instead, about three years ago, he married Into the wealthy Spreckels family of San Fran cisco. Sir. Eddy was charge d'affaires at Berlin for a year following bis serv ice at St. Petersburg and In 1007 wns appointed minister to Argentina, from which post he has now been trans ferred to Rouiuauia and Servla. It used to be said of Mr. Eddy that he was equally at home leading a cotillon or as tackle on a football team. Feats That Never Happened. A grotesque and foolish view of the rest leads many who are not ac quainted with that part of the country to perpetrate amusing blunders re garding the possibilities of the typical western weapons, the rifle and the sis shooter. To shoot an animal's eye out at a hundred paces Is a common font In wild west literature. Sometimes It Is done with a six shooter iu type, not anywhere else. Of course, no man can see the eye of au animal that far. I have had a good rilleiuan tell me he could cut off a robin's bead at a hun dred steps. The truth Is that he could not see the head clearly that far. You read that the desperado Slade could with a six shooter at fifty or sixty steps hit a man In any button of his coat that he chose, but you may be sure that neither Slade nor any oue else could do anything of the kind. Even trick and fancy shooting at Its best could ever cover feats ascribed as matters of course to the average fron tiersman by those devotees of frenzied fiction who never saw the frontier. Outing Magazine. Eluding the Officers. Here is an amusing description of one of Baltnc's periods of Impecunios ity. Mery, the poet, a great friend of Ha line, was an luvcterate gambler and rarely left the card table before daybreak, nis way lay past the Cafe de Tarls, and for four consecutive mornings be bad met Balzac strolling leisurely op and down dressed In a pantalon a pteds (trousers not termi nating below the ankle, but with feet In them like stocklugs) aud frock coat with velvet facings. The second morn ing Mery felt surprised at the coinci dence: the third be was puzzled: the fourth he could hold out no longer and asHed Balzac tho reason of thwe noc turnal peraiubulattous roundabout the tame spot. Balzac pat his hand In his pocket and produced an almanac showing that the sun did not rise before 3:5a "I am being tracked by the officers of tte Ill:; :. r v.- M v ;-:-.-:tvk n ma' i i : tribunni ae commerce ana oDugea to hide myself during the day, but at this hour I am free and can take a walk, for ns long as the sun Is not up they cannot arrest me." 8ome Generations Hence. "Why are the trees all chopped away?" the little fellow said. "Why do the streams go dry while sun shine's beating overhead?" His father said. "It Is because the lum bermen so gay Each had an ax to grind and was a cut up In his way." Washington Star. State Lines. Texas has an area of more than 205, 000 square miles.

The origin of the familiar vernacu lar verb "to wallop" is not generally known. It comes from the family name of the earls of Portsmouth. Sli John Wallop, K. G.. was admiral commander in the reign of King Hen ry VIII. of the fleet 'which avenged French raids by burning French ships and twenty-one French villages. This was called. In the current parlance ol the times, "walloping" them, and the phrase passed Into the language and still survives. The Emperor's Orderly. Frenchmen of every rank and class dearly love titles. The manager of a Paris Insurance company was decorat ed with the Legion of Honor a few days ago, and the clerks la the em ploy of the company presented him with a piece of plate to whl h their visiting cards were attached. Cn look ing over thte be was a good deal puz zled and amused by the visltlug curd of the office "boy," au old soldier from the Invalides, who wns employed to open the office doors from 0 to 4. Under the man's name was the title "the emperor's orderly." He sent for the old soldier, who stumped In and saluted. "Of what emperor nrc you the order ly, nnd how?" he naked. The old In vallde drew himself up to attention. "I am the orderly of the emperor," he said, "Napoleon, le Petit Corporal." "But he Is dead. He has been dead some time," answered the puzzled manager. "I dust his tomb for him," growled the old soldier. London Express. No Morals In Dreamland. If, as many writers have suggested, It Is the soul Itself that guides the Im agery of dreams, how are we to ex plain the fact that in this chaos of Ideas and feelings there is so little dis tinction between right and wrong that when dreaming we commit acts for which we should weep tears of blood were they as real as they seem to be. As Professor Hoffman has said, "The familiar check of waking hours, 'I must not do It because It would be un Jnst or unkind,' never once seems to arrest us lu the satisfaction of any tvhim which may blow about our way ward fancies." From all of which we must conclude that the dream realm Is a world that Is entirely oblivious to any moral sense and that, though it may be true that a troubled conscience may produce or affect our dreams, the dreams them selves are never burdened with a con science. Bohemian Magazine. An Awful Rebuke. Once ripon a time a certain commu nity planned to give a dinner to a Judge there. When the Judge came to scan the list of those Invited he raised vigorous' protest against one name, that of a man who h-.id been the most brilliant lawyer in town, but who was now the town druukard. Tbey finally overcame bis opposition, but the towu drunkard had beard of It. He was the last speaker called upon. He arose and said: "Mr. Toast master Fifteen years ago I had a practice In this town that adiouuted to $12,000 a year. I had a wife and family whom I sup ported In comfort. I had my owu horse aud carriage. At that time the guest of the evening wns on his way went hi an emigrant wagon. He land ed In this town and started in to make his living.
