Ill Wonder.
Very many stories nro told of tho 40-hoss
talking power of Senator Blackburn of
Kentucky, and most of them have some
foundation in fact, for the senator's best .
friends will admit, when cornered, thnt Joe
Blackburn Is a talker from Talkvllle.
However, It ia interesting talk, and there
fore ho Is excusable. Coming east In aC.
& O. sleeper not long ago tho senator made
tho acquaintance of u bright small boy,
which later led to on acquaintance with tho
yottter's father antl mother. Tho seuu
tor wax sitting with them chatting along
in his boot style, nnd tho boy frequently in
terruptedYdm. Finally tho mother put her
hand on lit): son's shoulder.
I "Littlo boys," sho said reprovingly, "are
to no seen, not lieartl."
That quoted him for n time, but later '
the mother had to tell him tho sanio thing
fVjitin. He quieted down for a half hour
longer, and nt tho Ilrst break In tho sen-1
ator's talk he looked upnt him Inquiringly.
"What Is It?" nsked tho senator. i
"I was wondering," replied the kid, "If
you was ever a little boy like mo, how you I
outgrowed It so." I
The senator looked at tho mother, the
mother looked nt the senator, they both
looked at tho father, and then cvcrylxxly
laughed and tho kid was given a chance.

on thu way there, lie had struck tho mer
chant for n dollar, ind thu merchant wan
rather interested In him.
"1 don't mm1," ho said, "why yoil go nbnut
asking for money or help. You urn an In
telligent man, and I should think on roulil
get. something better to do." .
"I don't know nbout thai," was thu de
spondent rejoinder. "The Lord knows I
tried hard enough to gel along before I loil
my heart entirely."
"Wlmt'illd you do?"
"Well, a littlo of everything, 1 had unmi
money, and i thought I'd go to raising rlci
In South Carolina and show those penplr
down there how todo It right. I knew It nil
of course, and one day a man emtio tilling
selling n new brand of seed rice. Downs
a nice looking man from Now York, nnd 1
liked his style. Me liked my style, too, he
said, and would sell me the exclusive right
to handle bin stun In South Carolina. It
was something new u seed Hint could not
be exposed lo tho light, but that would
yield three limes us much as thu old vari
eties. That was what I wns looking for,
nud very quietly I took It in, paying (WW
for tho right i.nd four sealed cans of seed.
1 did all tho work at night, and when it
was finished I sat down to wall and la
chuckle over my enterprise. Hut I waited
nnd walled, and nothing came, and ouo day
I looked Into tho old cans nud found I had
been stuck with come menu little wheat
grains, mid you might ns well try to rnlse
Icicles in the bad placu as to raise wheat In
n South Carolina rice swamp."
"Thnt wns bad luck," said tho sympa
thising merchant.
"So I thought, nud I left the stnto nud
went to raising cuttlo In western Kansas.
Hadn't more than got my herd set out be
fore a cyclone came along- and blew every
horn of It clean over into the next county,
and when I went nfter my stock a ploiti

seo any son of a gun try to take them
away. As ho lind a Winchester nud n lot
of friends with him I didn't seo my way
clear to Interfering with tho ways of Provi
dence, and I left tho country."
"It's pretty hard when Providence goes
against a mnn," ventured the merchant
"Yes, but that Isn't all." sighed the dis
consolate ono. "With what little I had
left I went to Pennsylvania and bought a
water power gristmill In tho mining re
