THE republican party of New Yik
hurt taken steps to settle all differences,
find will take the field iu the next cam
paign, with un unbroken front. The
experiment of electing a democratic
governor and legislature in that state
has gone a lon$ way toward convinc
ing the warring factious in the repub
lican party that an internecene war,
carried on for the sole purpose of plac
ing their common enemy in power, is
neither interesting nor remunerative,
in a party sense.
Wk notice some of Ex-enator Pad
dock's friendly org m6 are not content
to allow that Senator Van Wyck's ef
forts to see that the Otoe lands are put
on the market speedily, and, at the
same time, in such a manner as to pro
tect the settler from being frozen out
by the gang of speculators who will be
on hand at those sales. Kveryone who
knows the Senator knows that he is
not likely to be a party to an) arrange
ment in regard to those hind sales
which Is not favorable to the people.
Am exchange says, it is estimated
that 246.600 head of cattle will be
driven out of Texas this season. Last
year the number purchased and driven
from' Texas to other localities, t feed,
grat. etc., was some S30.000. This
falling off is not owing to a decline in
the cattle busiaes, but is due to the
fact that our ranges are becoming
scarce, and driving long distances to
more northern pastures much more
ditlicult. It is said Texas is increasing
all the time iu its production of beef.

X BIT OF EXl'KBIENCB IN CIUAR
"Here comes a big ooy; 1 guess he'll
give us one."
As Herbert Raymond looked up, he
saw two ragged little fellows, a few
paces in front of him, sitting on a
stone by the roadside. The smaller
one appeared to bo about six years of
age, and the other not more than two
It was the smaller one who had
spoken, and he evidently referred to
Herbert as the "big boy."
"Say, won't you givo us a match V
asked the larger hoy. as Herbert drew
nenr and stood before them.
"What do you want with a match?'1
asked Herbert. '
"Want ter smoke," said the boy.
"What! such a little fellow as you
are? Do you smoke?"
"You bet I do. I've smoked for
mor'n a year. But I'm not little. How
old do you think I be?"
"Oh! about eight," said Herbert.
''Eight! I guess I be. I'm almost
ten. Hut what do you think of this
little feller, not mor'n half as big as
me. ITe smokes, and chews, too."
"What do you smoke?"
"Why, cigars, of course., And he
stretched himself up, and thrust his
hand deep among the patches of his
ragged trowers. After fumbling about
for a while, he drew forth three stubbs
of cigars, about an inch and a half
"You've been using them already. I
see," said Herbert.
"No we hain't either. That u what
we wait the lighters for."
"How did you get the stubbs, then V"
"Oh! some fellers wad passiu' and
thro wed 'em at ns; but the fire had so
nigh gone out that we couldn't make
"Let's share the cigars with hint, it
he'll furnish' the watches," broke in
the smaller boy.
"Of course we'll do that," said the
other. "There'll be just one apiece."
"I am just as much obliged to you,"
said Herbert.. "But I don't care for
the cigar; and as for matches, I ha v n't
any with me."
"Hain't got a match V
"What dye do when yer want
"I don't smoke.' said Herbert.
"What! a big feller like you don't
smoke? What '11 yer do wen yer a man?'
"Indeed I don't smoke. Io you
think I would be seen with a dirty cigar
or pipe in my mouth? It is a filthy,
useless habit at the bust; and, if I were
you, I would throw those old stubs
away, and quit while able to do so."
'Ye3, cigars are mean, dirty thiDgs,"
said tho bor, "and we arc tryin to get
some fire so wc can burn these up. But
here comes Dick Jones. He's tLe boy for
us. He always carries matches, und
he'll be glad to share with U4."
At the mention of Dick Jones' nanio
Herbert started quickly along, for he did
uot care, for Dick to hear his lecture
Dick had .seen him, one one occasion,
trying to smoke, and he might meu::on
it here, and then they would have a good
amnVf t Iiia cTtiPniui
True, Herbert had never smoked but
twice in his liie; but as he walked along
j trying to associate the idea of manliness
; of smoking with the scene he had just
witnessed, he felt A keener sense of the
ridiculousness of such a thought than
ever before, and he felt heartily ashamed
of himself for having been so foolish bs
to try to learn to smoke.
We will let him give an account of
his experience with cigars in ins own i
words, that other boys wh havo never
tried them may catch a glimpe of the
pleasure they afford.
"It was about six months ao when
Dick Jones got me to try one of his cl
jC'irs. Dick is two years older than I,
1 learned to smoke when a Small boy.
We had been over to Medow brook fish
ing for trout, aud had sat down to rest a
few minutes before starting for borne.
Dick drew out ajyise of. cijrars and
asked me to try oae." I refnsed to do ao,
we very mild-
" " f '
ed at me for not being able to sidoo
lie continued to urge me, till, at last, I
lighted one and put It into my moutb.
"lean taste it in my mouth now,
and it makes me sick whenever I think
44 1 bad not smoked more than a min
ute before I began to feel a strange
sickness at the stomach, and my head
seemed to have converted itself into a
top.Snd set itself to s pinning.
"As soon as I fell able, we started
for home. The first thing we bad to do
was to cross the brook on a rather
shaky log that lay across it. I gut
along very well until about, two-thirds
across, .wbcu the rocking , of the log.
the dancing of the water below, and
the whirling of my ; head, were alto
gether , tea, much for me, and down I
weot Into the stream , The water waff
quite shallow, but it managed to g t !--
all over me, and made mo just as wet
as though it was twice as deep. Afttr
considet A'de effort I succeeded in get
ting home, changed my clothes, ate a
very light supper, and went to bed
much earlier than usual. The next
morning I felt as wise ;is Sulemou on
the subject cf using tobacco.
" The next time I saw Dick, he offer
ed me another cigar, but I firmly re
fused. I told him that I had concluded
to leave off smoking before the habit
got too firmly fixed, and advised him
to do the same.
" Still he gave me no peace. Eveiy
time I met him he woukl broach the
subject. uid inist that I must learn.
He said it was boyish to give up in
that way, that I ought to have the
manliness to stick to it. He had prom
ised to say nothing about my smoking
affair, but he told one or two of his
associates, and they joined with him
and laughed at me for my weakness.
"Some time after this ous of the
boys gave mo a cigar, which ho said I
could smoke when I was alone, and
then there would be no one to laugh at
me. I thought this would be just the
plan. Besides, this boy told me that
the first cigar always made one sick,
but that there wax no difficult) in
smoking the second one.
"It was on one Saturday morning,
about a month alter my first attempt,
that I thought 1 would try naiu. I
thought I would smoke a lew times,
just to show the boys I could do ittnrd
then I would quit.
' In this alteruoou of this day there
was to be hii excursion to a lake about
five miles distant- Our whole school
was to go, and nrruugements had been
made For a grand time. I had a few
chores to do during the morning,
among which was the tplitting of a
lew pieces of wood for starting the
tires. Just before commencing this
work, I lighted my cigar and puffed
away ns fast as I could. 1 had deter
mined o not smoke very much but
thought I would do it as quickly as
possible and haye it over.
"Soon I began to Feel dizzy, and
throwing aside the cigar, I took the
axe and commuueed my task. I
thought I could work off the ill-fccl-iug;
but the harder 1 worked the
more dizzy I got. Soon the wood
house seemed the wrong side up, and
the pieces of wood appeared to sway
romsUte to side as though trying to
evade my blows. My feet and the
wood get badly mixed together, r.nd
my axe never would go where I aimed
it. Suddenly I felt a 6harp jaiu in
my loot, and found that I had made a
gash in it, whu-h nearly severed one ot
my toes . 1 managed to get into the
boufet, aud a surgeon was called to
drees the wound.
" 'rli!tt day was the most miserable
one I ever spent. The pain in my
loot, tl.e dizzy feeling in my head, and
t!:C disappointment in not being able
to accompany my schoolmates on their
excursion, seemed enough to render
my misery complete.
" I did not tell anyone of the part
the cigar had in causing the accident.
None of tho boys knew any thiug about
it, aud Dick still urges me to try a
second cigar. He says unless I learn
to smoke that all the boys wiil laugh
at me, and say that I tried to learn
but wasn't man enough
" 1 can now wee how much easier it
would havo been if I had firmlv re
fused at the first. But I cau only so
aet iu the future as to avoid getting j
into deeper trouble. I have decided
to let them laugh all they please at my
past experience iu smoking, but shall
furnish them with no moro similar
matter for sport. They may rest as
sured that my experience in using to
bacco in any form is at an end."
