Davieon.v LINO BUT NOT GIVE. Vho OpIalM of Springer S*(ar41ag World's Fair Appropriation. WASHINGTON, Dec. 15.—Members of congress from Illinois are much inter ested in the world's fair appropriation on account of the action of the board of control in deciding to ask for an appro priation of $3,000,000 instead of a loan oj that amount as at first contemplated. Mr. Springer, in speaking of the proba ble treatment of the fair by congress, said: l,I think that there is not any good reason to expect this congress to make an appropriation of the amount specified, for this congress will be quite chary in its expenditures. Nor do I un derstand that any regular appropriation will be asked. Congress will, however, 1 am confident, make a loan to the board of that amount for, guaranteed as it will be by the receipts which will ag gregate three times the amount asked, there will be no failure on the govern ment to have it repaid. Congress in this way advanced a million and half to the Centennial, and I know of no reason why it should not for the World's Co lumbian exposition, which will be larger.

CRESTED BUTTE, v 1 A Physician Suieidos. KANSAS QTY, Dec. TAINT MO! A Xkhtgaader tliat GmmH Heaven Bera«ae He Iteai't Veil the Truth. 'Squire Hoppin saluted this reporter this afternoon, UI Mr. Vanderhoof is 'Squire Hoppin's son-in-law, and he is in Michigan simply for the purpose of establishing homes for two of his married daughters who reside near Bangor. 'Squire Hoppin says Mr. Vanderhoof took back with him to Michigan .more wealth than he brought away, besides leaving here a farm of 300 acres upon which he raised this year over 4,X)0 bushels of grain, and sold in the Madison market 2,000 bush els of wheat a few days before he de parted for Michigan. Besides his farm interests, Mr. Vanderhoof owns securi ties here, the proceeds from sales of stock. His farm machinery consists of everything in that line, including a threshing machine. Mr. Vanierhoof has made money in Lake county, and be inga truthful man ho never made the statement to the Michigan editor quo ted above. The average Michigan edi tor doeen't seem to consider it unchris tianlike to lie when he refers to Dakota. In fact, were it not for the lying editors of that state the entire population of Michigan would emigrate to Dakota be fore next spring, and they would be welcomed—all except the editors. Mr. Vanderhoof will returnn to Lake county at no distant day for the purpose of ad ding to his wealth. Not only has Mr. Vanderhoof been prosperous, but there are hundreds of other farmers in this section who are piling up wealth every year. A Kearr W«*»**t Krtitttr raralyxed Writin? to his former home paper The Grant County Review—J. A. Mc Govern thus narrates his successful ex* perience in editing our contemporary across the way: I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the very kind notice that you gave through the Review a short timo ago. Three long dreary weeks was the length of my editorial life on the "Lake County Independent." When I get myself together again I intend to write a book on what I know about jour nalism, but if the public insist that it shall be a big book—yes, a very large book, I shall give them a work entittled, "What I Don't Know About Journalism." Of course, it has always been the height of my ambition to become an editor of some great family educator, and when the position was offered me by the man agement of the Independent, my heart leaped with joy, my head enlarged to that enormous size that the band on my brand new Independent hat flew into a thousand pieces. All was joy and glad ness, everything seemed to be playing right into my hands. Last night in my dreams I filled my pocket with railroad passes. I had a dozen invitations out to dine on the best the land could produce. Before morning, I was licking postage stamps in one of the best of Uncle Sam's postoffices in the state. I had conquered my contemporaries down the street and was raaching out to oonquer others, when I awoke. It was early more. I must be up and doing. Armed with a large pair of Bhears Bhop, Colo., Dec. 15.—The state labor commissioners have had a conference "with a number of the leaders bf the striking men.

Hoppin, arrived in Bangor Monday morning and will make this county his future home. lie says he has tried the hardships of Dakota for twelve years and now returns no better off thag when he left Michigan." o o 6 irl 0 III and paste pot, I trip ped lightly down to the offloe. The "devil" had just finished building a fire and standing the office towel in its ac customed place in one corner of the room. I pulled off my coat and spread the ex changes out on the table, and with the aforesaid shears I commenced to cut right tmd left. I was suddenly stopped by the "imp of darkness" who ordered me to slow on that kind of business, that it was not allowed in this office, and that if I intended to run a paper with a pair of shears, I had better secure a job in some republican outfit, that it required brains, and brains that were not covered with scales to run an Independent paper. That was a corker. I hadn't thought of that before. I was stunned for a few moments at his satanic majesty's impert inence, but remembering that the "devil" was monarch of all he surveyed in a print I laid down the tool of destruction and wrote out my resignation. It was not accepted for two weeks. Afterwards, however, when the time did come, I went out among the worldly multitude a meeker and wiser man. Editors are born, not made, and don* you forgot it. A Hallo «reen Kxperlaaemt. Halloween is sometimes called "nut Cfack night," because nuts have always taken a conspicuous part in its observ ance.

Delicacy of feeling is not confined to gentle people, commonly so called. It is well known, for example, by thoee who have to do with men confined in prison, that such convicts never speak the hated word "prison," but invariably use some euphemistic substitute, "this institution" being perhaps the one of- tenest adopted.
