Long of Council Bluffs Is some what handicapped In his battle through life by being deprived of the sense of hearing and the faculty of speech, but he has a spirit that soars above these hin drances and by his natural capacity as a hustler has pushed himself well to the front. During the last few weeks when The Bee was offering a number of trips to the World's fair st St. Louis to be voted for, young Mr. Long made up his mind that he would have one of them. He started his huxtle, and so well did he suc ceed that he flnlnhed second In the con tent.

C. whom I happened to meet there told me how Peter the Great had once gone through the law courts. He said Peter, at the end of his Inspection, said: " These men are all lawyers?
