Tuf.hk is a poem," said the sweet
singe r, as he handed it in, "just as it fell
from my pen. I wrote it in twenty-five
minutes." "I see," said the editor, "but
it will take about twenty-tivu years to
get it into print." That, my son. is the
trouble with a poem or sketch that mal-.e
all its time on the first qm.rttr. It hasn't
the staying qualities essential in a long
race." It either breaks down at the turn
or gets shut out at the distance pole.
Anybody can write a poem in twenty-five
minutes. The trouble then is to get any
one else to read it. Iiob Hurdetle.
Onk outcome of the Conemaugh dis
aster will probably be legislation provid
ing for systematic inspection of dams.
It is all very well to ?peak of absolute
safety and is impossibility of accident,
l.ut something more tangible than mere
assurance is needed. Some dams have
not only sluice gates to relieve undue
pressure, but have also an automatic ar
aingement whereby the water itself, on
reaching high-water mat k forces them
open, greatly reducing, if not absolutely
removing, the risk. Such safety valves
should be insisted upon in every cas-,
and public opinion will probably be
strong enough to enforce their adoption.
Notwithstanding the republican
howl about the government funds in the
national banks which was heard through
the land last year, the deposits have
largely increased under Windom, and
the latter has generally followed the
policy of his predecessor. Mr. Clair.e,
too, has" satisfactorily settled the San.om
difficulty upon the lins laid down by
Mr. Dayard, and on the whole the Harri
son administration is getting along pret
ty well in just so far as it is imitating

Goy. Church, who has been at the dead
lock with the legislature all winter, sent
in the nomination of a one-legged man
for a prominent ollice, ami it became the
duty of the legislature to consider wheth

to whom Col. Tierce alludes took the
floor and made a brief but effective
"Gentlemen of the legislature," said he,
"let us look at the situation carefully in

gentlemen? No, sir; he did not lose it
in the harvest Held. Then how did he
lose tti you ask. And you have a right
to ask it, gentlemen. It is your right to
ask all the questions you are a minel to
about the way in which this duffer lost
his leg. He was riding, gentlemen, over
the prairies of this great and growing
territory, turning out of their humble
cottages the widows and orphans of poor

A Traveling Man Creates Creat Ex

lit i-lunatic Syruj Co., Jw:kson, Mich:
Gknts: Your Mr. Iirooks came here
tonight and registered as agent for mil
liard's Rheumatic Syrup, and as ho did
so it awakened in mo an interest never
before realized in a guest at my house.
You will not wonder at it when I tell
you the story. For years I have been
ureatly afflicted with inflammatory rheu
matism, the pain anel soreness of the
joints at tiine3 being almost unbearable;
could move about onlv with the aid of
crutches. In addition to this my stomach
became badly diseased, and neuralgia set
in, which threatened to end my day. A
traveling man stopping with me gave
quite a history of your Syrup, and the
peculiarities of its combination, which
induced mo to try it. I have taken six
bottles and no act in my life affords me
greater satisfaction than in writing you
I nm a well man.
It will be a pleasure for me to answer
any communications, for I believe it to
be the best remedy ever formulated.

HE WAS NEAR SIGHTED.
Annoyances of a Gentleman w ho Tried to
Atone for n Blunder.
Many are the social drawbacks attend
ant on near eightedness. There is prob
ably no person thus afflicted who has not
at some time cut his best friends aud
killed possible acquaintanceship by fail
ing to recognize some one to whom he
has been recently introduced.
A very nervous and sensitive gentle
man, wlio can literally see little more
than "an inch before his nose," says he
has far less to regret from his failures to
s;iiute acquaintances than from his at
tempts at atonement after' inevitable
mistakes. The history of one morning's
blunders may suffice to show the disabil
ities under which he struggles.
On the way down town he met his
Filter, who at once stopped him, exclaiin
iiig,"Why, Henry Gilbert, how could you
fail to recognize Mrs. Miles? You have
just passed her, and I supposo she didn't
l)v because there wasn't even a gleam
of recognition on your face."
"Dear, dear! have I actually made
such a blunder?" said poor Henry. "And
I am particularly anxious to be on good
terms with her husband. But they're
n . w comers in town, how could I be ex
pected to know her, when I've only seen
"On the other hand, she can't be ex
pecteel to make allowances for you, not
knowing you are near sighted," said his
sister, severely. "Now, Henry, do keep
a lookout for people, and try not to make
any nioro mistakes for twenty-four
Henry went on his way with a heavy
heart, but when he entered a horse car
that noon, it was with a thrill of elation
th".t he fr.v Mrs. Miles established in one
corner. To gain a seat lieside her, and
berin ingratiating overtures, was the
work of an instant.
"Good morning," said the repentant
one, taking off his hat with more than
ordinary deference. "What a lovely day!
I'i.i sure you've been shopping."
The lady only looked at him, but her
t.i!ence hardly surprised her companion,
absorbed was ho in zealous effort.
"Ladies aro such privileged beings,'"
ho wert on. "Think how charming it
iii to go about buying silks and ribbons,
instead of sitting all day in a stuffy
o!"ice liko ua humdrum men."
The lady moved as far from him as
convenience would admit, but etill she
did not speak.
"I saw your husband this morning,"
volunteered Mr. Gilbert.
"I have no husband," she announced,
He looked her full in the face.
"J31ess me!" gasped he, "I believe you
are not Mrs. Miles after all!'
"I certainly am not."
Mr. Gilbert apologized, and left thecar
at tho uc:ct corner. There, face to face,
h met a lady who looked so familiar
thr.t, in pure tlespair, he took off his hat
to her, only to be requited by a surprised
and distant bow.
"That was a mistake, too," groaned he,
"ETidently I didn't know her, and she
thinks I meant to be impertinent."
110 rushed on to seek tho shelter of his
own walls, and as ho entered tho gate, a
lady passed by on the other side of the
"I declare, Henry, this is too bad!"'
cr.ilcdhis dster, leforo ho reached tho
where she wa3 sitting, "you havo
actually cut Mrs. Miles again! There
bhe goes down the street, and you had
all tho chance in the world to bow, or
even run over to her and apologize."
"Susan," said Mr. Gilbert, transfixing
her with a dusperato ghiiice, "never daro
ro mention Mrs.Miles' name to me agaiul"'

HE WASN'T SORDID.
But no Thouglit Six Months Was Enonjh
to Civo to Mourning.
I had been sitting in the shade of a
fence corner for a quarter of an hour
when a farmer came along with an ox
team and invited mo to ride with him.
I was only fairly seated when he said:
"Sad thing happened back thereabout
six months ago."
"Yes; that 'ere- blamed off ox shied at
a paper in the road and run us into a
ditch and tipped the wagon over."
"Martha was along. Crushed the giz
zard right out of her, and the was dead
when I picked her up. Funeral cost me
$40. I w as just looking at the bill. Had
a coffin with six silver plated handles.
Ever lose your wife?"
"Awful sad thing. Haw there, Buck!
She had two unmade dresses in the
house, which were left on my hands.
Guess I'll get 6hot of them, liowever
guess I will. Whoa! yea yaller ox!
Undertaker said wo could scrape along
with four handles to the coffin, but I
told him to make 'em an even half dozen.
Feller can't afford to be small about
those things. Say, you knOw what be
longs to manners, eh?"
"I hope so."
"Gues6eel you did, even if you are
afoot. I want to ask you how long a
widower has to wait before taking an
other. There's no law, yer know, but a
soi-t of custom. Is it a year?"
"Some wait a year."
"Aud some only three or six months?"
"I've heard of a second marriage with
in a week or two."
"Too soon a leettle too soon," ho an
swered, as he stroked his thin whiskers.
"Looks too sordid and grasping, you
see. Neighbors would probably talk,
too. Couldn't complain about six months
"I should think not."
"That's twenty-four weeks or one hun
dred and sixty-eight days, you see.
Nothing sordid about that, eh? It's com
ing off next week."
"What? Your marriage?"
"That's it. Bui engaged five days
now, and it's to come off next Wednes
day. Her name is Feebe. Awful hard
to get up airly and keep hustling all day.
Had my eye on her ever since the day of
the funeral, but you needn't mind tell
ing it. Folks is gossipy, you know. Git
up, you lazy beasts! Say, I want to asli
bout another thing."
"Havn't got Martha any tombstone
yet. Have to git one, won't I?"
"If I didn't they'el say I was sordid,
"Would you put a lamb or a dove on
"That's just as you feel."
"Has it got to read: 'Martha, the first
and most beloved wife of Aaron Sny
"Kin I jist put on: 'Erected to the
memory of Martha Snyder, who died
April 22, 1888?' "
"And have it quietly taken up and
set up, and not let on to the other. I see.
Nothing sordid about Feebe, but sich
tilings grind, you know. Do you take
the cross road? Wall, good day. Glad
we met. Seemed some six months was
long enough, but I kinder wanted an
outside opinyun. Had six handles, you
remember, but the neighbors might call
me sordid and shut us out on quilting
bees and corn huskings." New York
A Chance to Sit Down at Last.
He had bought an admission ticket,
and with true rural independence,
swooped down on the best empty 6eat in
tho theatre. He sat placidly there for a
few minutes, and then the usher came
and told him he'd have to get out. He
moved into another seat and presently
tho usher came and fired him out of
that. He took another vacant seat and
presently the gentlemanly usher came
along and bounced him out of that.
Then he got mad. ne stuck his hat on
the back of his head and marched out.
As he passed the doorkeeper he stepped
up and shook Ids finger in his face.
"See here, ray man, I'm going back to
New Hampshire. I own ground there
and I can 6it down." San Francisco
