GREAT REJOICING IN DAKOTA
Because of the Passase of the Ter
Bismarck, Dak., Fehruary 22. The
territorial legislature now in session here
is completely oyercoiuo ly the news that
the bill for the admission of the two
Dakotns had passed both houses, and
the crowd of visitors from all parts
of th territory is a veritable howling
mob, of clieerin? jollifies. The news
will have a m irked effjet on the laws
enacted by this, the last territorial legis
lature. Already it is proposed to post
pone many important , bills now before
tho legislature, owing tj the fact that
the present body should not legislate for
the future states. The jubilant solans
have decided to take an excursion to
Ileleua and join with the Montana legis
lature now in session there in celebrating
tho event. The excursion will leave to
morrow morning by special train. The
distance to be travelled in going and re
turning is 1 4')0 miles. The people
throughout the territory are celebrating
the passage of the -bill, with bonfires
an 1 torchlight processions, banquets and
nass meetings. No name is more fre
quently cheered than that of Sunset Cox,
who has led the forces in Congress to a
proper recognition of Dakota and it is
proposed to extend to him au invitation
to visit the territory cither at the con
vening of the constitutional convention
or at some time when the people can be
got together in mass meeting so that he
may be given an ovation.
The governor to-day vetoed the bill
ocating a soldiers homa in South Da
kota, at the Hot Springs, on the ground
that as North and South Dakota are
low virtually two separate and distinct
states, the membars from North Dakota
should not vote public buildings and
additional exoense on Suth Dakota.
Vn eff rt will be made to pass the bill
vcr his veto.
How Huron Racaiyed the News.
Huron, Dak., Feb. 22. The citizens
f Huron and vicinity join in the rejoic
ing so general throughout South Dakota.
rhey had begun to fear that they were
.loomed to another year of - waiting for
tie benefits they expect to derive from
.-ights of self-goverumsnt, but when the
lad tidings was received from the
mtional capitol that the report of the
onference committee had been adopted
y both houses, and all that was lacking
hat it might become a law was the
signature of the president, there was uni
versal lejoicing. While there will be
some objectionable features to the present
state constitution, it -would h,e a poor
one, indeed, that the people would not
be willing to ratify in order to hasten the
lay so long sought for by D.ikntans,
when they might puiui with pride to
out!i Dakota as nno uf the sisterhood of
ti'es. One cause for great rejoicing is
that Sring-T w is defeite 1 i !i one

tatives were alive to Dakota's need. The

Cljveland Vetoes ths Bill for the
Relief jf the Iowa Settler
WASHiJiGTOS, Feb. 21. The ptcsident
oday returned to congra without his
approval the house bill to deterrnjqe the
ritle of settlers on the Des 3Ioincs river
lands, in Iowa. .The president says:
"One result of this legislation, if con
ojmmated, should be to restore to the
United States, a3 part of the public
iomain, the lands which more than
twenty five years agq the government ex-
iressly granted und surrendered, H,nd
vhich repeated decision of the supreme
court have judged to belong to this sec
tion of the government. It is by no
neans certain thafr this proposed legisla
t:on relating to a subject peculiarly with
in the judicial function, nn4 Which iti
temps to disturb rights and interests
thoroughly entrenched in the solemn ad
judications of our courts, would be up
neld. In any event, it seems to me that
it is an improper exercise of legislative
power, an interference with the determin
ations of the co-ordinate branch of the
roverment, and the arbitrary annulment
if a public grant made more than twen
ty five years ago an attempted destruc
tion of vested rights and threatened im
pairment of lawful contracts,

Devoured by Wolves.
White Eautii, Minn., Feb. 22. While
two little girls, Millie and Winnie Peter
son, were returning from school yesterday
afternoon, in the northern part of Aitken
county, they were attacked and complete
ly devoured by timber wolves. A few
scattered bones and shreds of clothing
alone remaining as horrible testimony of
the childrens fate. It was supposed a;
first thai there was not more than two
wolves at most in the pack, but an Indian
hunter shortly after the disappearance of
the children, encountered a pack of ten
of these brutes near the scena of the lit
tie one's death. He used his Winchester
with such effect as to kill four of them
outright, and getting out of cartridges,
he went up a tree to ?s.-ape from the
fangs of the remaining six. Four of the
animals ran away, but two of them squat
ted down at the foot of the treev When
he thought his fate was sealed he found
two cartridges in the depth of his pock
ets. With these he killed the wolves.

WHAT CAUSES MIRTHT
Sydney Smith's Answer to TliU Query, with
Same Clear Illustration.
Sydney Smith gave the true answer
when he said that the form of mental
pleasure we call mirth was due to the dis
covery of a congruity in a seeming incon
gruity or the reverse. This is best illus
trated by an example. Boileau had a
brother who was a inauvais sujet, failed
in life and came to ask for help. Boileau
upbraided him with his misconduct,
pointed out how they had both started in
life under; equally favorable conditions
and with equal chances, and yet how dif
ferently they had got on. "Ah! but just
think," exclaimed the brother, "wliat an
immense advantage you had over me in
The discovery of the point, the seeing
of the joke is, says Sydney Smith, analo
gous to the pleasant mental feeling in
discovering something quite new, or in
suddenly understanding something dark
to us before. This sensation is always
pleasant, but in a joke the c'heovcry,
since it is carefully prepared for, is mo
mentary, unexpected, and without toil,
and therefore far more highly pleasura
ble than the ordinary mental discovery.
To take another example, that of the
wooden pavement before St. Paul's: "If
the dean and chapter would only lay
their heads together the thing would be
done," said Sydney Smith. Here very
clearly the fun is in the pleasure occa
sioned by the instant mental discovery
of the connection, notwithstanding the
apparent complete incongruity between
the heads of the dean and cliapter and
the wood pavement.
Now, the slower a mind works the
more difficulty it has in quickly follow
ing out the" congruity through the ap
parent incongruities, or the incongruity
through the apparent congruities, and so
in seeing the joke. Men with slow
minds, then, prefer the plainest form of
discovery, such as the mere noticing
that something out of the ordinary is
going on, as when a man clowns it by
putting on an enormous hat, a carroty
wig and a 6ea green coat. Thus, all
stupid and dull witted people are most
easily amused by caricature ant horse
play, and those rnnd which, though
they are powerful, aro also sluggish, find
it tcip hard work to follow mentally the
lightning flash in a finely wrought ver
bal epigram. - ,
No doubt -such a theory as this postu
lates that the man who likes Lamb and
Sydney pmith, but says he 6ees no joke
at all in buffoonery, really means that
ho only sees a very little joke, and that
he does not care for it because he can see
sq TOWh moro fa other things. Tins,
however, agrees with common experi
ence. The man fond of tho highest kind
of wit Is never really unable to see the
fun of the clown, though it may bore
him by its snialiness, and if he is scien
tifically minded he no more refuses to
call it a kind of wit, humor or- fun than
he does to call vin ca;dmaire wine, though,
as a- natte$ pf fact, what he really con
siders wine is Lantte. All the mirth
causing agent3 are of one kind and differ
only in Cejrree. though the degrees are
