A Cowboy'a Sense of II amor.
A globe trotting Englishman told me
this story: "To show you that the cow
boys are not as bad as they have been
painted in fact, that they are opposed
to anything like lawbreaking and vio
lence let me relate an incident. There
was a poor clerk standing up over his
books at a desk in a shop on the main
street, and there was a cowboy riding
up and down the streeL Well, the cow
boy saw the clerk and his sense of hu
mor was aroused by the idea of shooting
at him, d'you know. Those cowboys
have a very remarkable sense of humor.
So the cowboy ups with his pistol, d'you
know, and he shoots the poor clerk right
through the head, killing him instantly.
"Well, now, that sort of thing is very
distinctly frowned upon by cowboys, as
a rule, and in this case the cowboys held
a meeting and resolved that the fellow
with the lively bnt dangerous sense of
humor should be hanged at once. They
put a rope around his neck, and there
being no tree anywhere m sight they
hung him to the side of a Pullman as
the train came rolling in. I've seen a
number of occurrences of that sort,
which makes me quite positive in stat
ing that though they are a very rum
sort of beggars they are really not a bad
lot." Julian Ralph in Harper's Weekly.
A lay. Though Shrewd Fellow.
Tulkinson a barrister and bachelor

"Now I want you to understand,
Joseph, that when 1 ring once that
means for you, and when 1 ring twice
that means for Maggie, the housemaid.
Joseph, whq is the laziest wretch that
ever accepted wages he did not earn,
bowed respectfully and withdrew. A
little later the ijell rang. Joseph never
moved. Presently it rang again, and
according to instructions Maggie came
hurrying to her master, who was Very

"Why, sir," answered Maggie, ."Jo

Strange Cave Dwellers in Spain.
At a meeting of the Uoj-al Geograph
ical society, of Madrid, Dr. Bide gave an
account of his exploration of a wild
district in the province of Caceres,
which he represented as still inhabited
by a strange people who speak a curious
patois and live in caves and inaccessible
retreats. They have a hairy skin and
have hitherto displayed a strong repng
nance to mixing with their Spanish and
Portugese neighbors. Roads have lately
been pushed into the district inhabited
by the "Jurdes," and they are begin
ning to learn the Castilian language
and attend the fairs and markets.

The Growth of Railroad Mileage.
In 1830 there were twenty-three miles
of railway in operation in the United
States. By 1833 the mileage had in
creased to 229 miles, and in 1835 the
country had 1,098 miles of railroad. The
first through railroad from the east
westward was completed in 1842 between
Boston and Albany, connecting at the
latter place with the Erie canal. In the
same year the last link of the line from
Albany to Buffalo was opened. At the
end of 1848 the total mileage of all the
railroads in the country was 5.99G miles,
or about 500 miles more than there are
now in the state of Nebraska. Edward
Rosewater's Omaha Address.
The Flute Is Very Old.
The flute is very old in its origin, but
the flute of today is different from that
of the ancients. It has been improved
upon from time to time, and the old
people would probably fail to recognize
it now. The flageolet, which is some
what similar, is credited to Juvigny

eyes of men fuller and rounder than
those of women. The alleged discovery

une. Plenty of Game in Blaine.
There has not been a year for some
time when game was as plenty and
when so little game has been killed
and destroyed as during the past win
ter. One reason is that the enow in
many localities has not been deep, and
at the same time it has been hard, hold
ing up the deer and caribou and giving
them a chance to protect themselves by
flight. Another reason is that the
guides and hunters have learned that it
is for their interest to leave the game
alone, especially during the deep snows.
I have made it a point to see many of
mem in the early part of the winter,
and tried to make them understand that
it is for their interest for us to keep a
good stock of fish and game, as they
would get more business during the
The most of the game that has been
killed the past winter has been killed in

Beekeepers and the Government.
Foreign bees without pedigrees may
be admitted to the United States free of
duty. The secretary of the treasury has
so decided. Until the last tariff bill was
passed bees from abroad came in gratis,
as "animals imported for breeding pur
poses." The McKinley law declared
that this ruling should only apply to an
imals "regularly entered in recognized
herd books." Accordingly, bees were
assessed 20 per cent, ad valorem, be
cause they had no pedigrees. The bee
keepers protested and carried their

on the ground that they would be likely
to sting people if they got loose. The
beekeepers secured the recall of this reg
ulation, by proving that the packages
employed could not be broken. Wash

Little Fear of Indian Troubles.
A gentleman at Rosebud agency writes
that the reports of dissatisfaction among
the Indians there have been greatly ex
aggerated. Since his arrival there two
weeks ago he has traveled quite exten
sively through the various Indian camps
and thinks the Indians never exhibited
a more peaceful frame of mind than at
present. Never did they take hold of
work more readily or more extensively
and never did they take more interest in
the care of their stock than the past
winter, as can plainly be seen by the
condition of horses and cattle this spring.
So far as dissatisfaction with rations is
concerned, if there is any such, the white
employees hear nothing of it. Cor. Min
There has recently been some inquiry
as to whether the Confederate govern

was referred to the Hon. Charles C.

gold. A few experimental half dollars
in silver were struck, but they did not

Keep Away from the Knot of Hyiuen.
It is an oft rejieated remark that New
York is the finest place in the republic
to live in if you are rich. But it it
worse thau the meanest suburb. th
dreariest of western "Ijoom towns," th
dnllost country village if you are jioor.
This is the criticism of the person who
does not contemplate life as a jiossibil
ity or an agreeable iossibility without
society, in the narrow sense of the word:
without the pleasures that come from
money, without the social standing that,
a good bank account gives, without l
ing able "to keep up with the proct
sion" of those who are well dressed, welt
fed, well situated and well off.
Singularly enough, those who demand
these things who will not accept mar
ried life without them are generally
not well supplied with this world's goods.
People who have teen rich all their lives
do not realize what it means to go with
out their luxuries. But ieople who have
been poor know just the wretchedness
of having to wear iatched boots and go
without lunch: of having to walk long
distances, because car fare "mounts up;"
of having to refuse nice invitations, be
cause they have no clothes or no means
of returning proffered civilities. To
these, poverty is a bitter thing, and they
loathe it. Marriage, unless it means
escape from carping cares of this kind,
they eschew as a hopeless evil. Better
endure those trials that we have than
fly to others that we know not of, they
So thinks the everyday, gentlemanly,
good looking, entirely personable young
man of thirty, who draws an income of
from two to four thousand a 3rear, and
is asked out all over because be dances
admirably and is good to look at, and
never does anything gauche. So. also,
thinks the pretty, well bred, well dressed,
moderately bright girl of twenty-five,
whose father spends six thousand a year
and has five children. Both of these know
jnst the way they want their lives to go.
Ever since childhood they have associ
ated with companions who have had
more money than they have, and they
know how nice it is to be well off. To
be rich or to remain as we are, that is
their motto. "When we make the great
move," they both think, "we make it to
better ourselves materially, or we don't
make it at all."
They do not want to be millionaires,
bat they do not want to be really pinched
anywhere. Their house must be large
enough and be comfortable. It must be
well fitted up no "sheet by night and
tablecloth by day" for them. There
must be servants enough to run it. This
girl who has always been comfortably
placed, but never luxuriously has no
intention of binding herself down to do
mestic cares, of dusting her own draw
ing room and turning up hems in her
own table linen. No; all that must be
done for her. She has made her own
dresses and trimmed her own hats all
her girlhood, and she wants, when she
marries, to change all that. Better to
go on doing it in your own home, where
it is all you have to worry over, than to
do it in your husband s, where you
have to keep the house and take care of
children as well.
Thus the young lady reasons and re
jects her suitors with a peculiar and good
humored indifference. She has made
up her mind that she will not marry a
man who has a cent under five thousand
a year, and is not above telling this to
the soupirants, who take the hint and
strive to realize the ideal. The young
lady is quite frank. She is not in the
least ashamed of her worldlir.ess or de
sirous of hiding it under a veil of at
tractive coyness. She is not mercenary.
It is not riches that she demands com
fort, that is all. If she is comfortable
she will continue to be a very nice, at
tractive person, but if she has to scrimp
and struggle and fight over ten cent
pieces, and turn her old clothes, and
have her 6hoes patched, she will not be
responsible for her temper. She is a
fin de siecle to her finger tips sensible
where she might be romantic, practical
where she once would have been impas
sioned a person who is bound to make
a success of her life and keep it on the
lines that she regards as the best.
The young man of her kind holds pre
cisely the same views. Life with a be
loved object sounds very charming, but
it is not to be indulged in unless the in
comes of himself and the beloved object
foot up to from five to six thousand per
annum. The beloved object on three
thousand a year is too expensive a lux
ury. He cannot afford it. What might
have been a courtship dwindles to a
mild friendship. Not infrequently he
tells the lady of his sad predicament and
how impossible a matrimonial alliance
would be on bis 6alary. She condoles
with him and they become friends, for
no violent fires burn in their hearts an J
friendship comes quite easily to them.
Marriage would mean a series of sacri
fices that neither is willing to make.
They would have to live in a flat in Har
lem and no one knows who has not lived
in Gotham the horror in which Harlem
is held or a second rate boarding house
beyond Fourth avenue.
Then come clothes and theaters. A
New York woman spends money lika
water on her clothes. She would mu-jli
rather be well dressed than well fed.
She must be well dressed to be up with
anything. The moment she grows
shabby she is no longer of any impor
tance. Then she may as well give up all
the fun and consent to be relegated to
dreary insignificance like the old wivei
of the pashas. San Francisco Argonaut
