in the Mulberry Rtreet jolice atation,
"lut plcitso let ino itop here. I've
walked a ffreat deal. Tin footsore ami
weary. 1 won't he a bother moth
longer. I'll noon throw in my checks."
He had the jKillor of death.
"I never take in any one at 3 in the
morning," kindly replied Sergeant Hor
belt, '"but I'll make an exception in youi

the olil man could get hia liberty when
he wanted it.
"Take your time," said the policetur.n

Came from Cuba to Vote.
The last vote deposited in Rhode Is
land at the recent election was the vote
of Eugene McAuliffe, of Providence.
The gentleman was in Cuba when he re
ceived a cablegram telling him of the
urgent necessity for every vote. Con
sulting the shipping register, he found
that by taking a steamer which sailed
that night he might with good weather
reach Boston the day before election.
Two hours later found him aboard the
ship. Adverse weather delayed the ves
sel, and at the dawn of election day the
steamer was still out in the Atlantic.
Port was reached late in the afternoon,
and McAuliffe was just in time to take a
train to Providence due just ten minutes
before the time for closing the polls.
The train was four minutes late.
Hurling himself into a hack he bribed
the driver to get to the wardroom in six
minutes or kill the horses. The clock
was about to strike the hour as Mr.
McAuliffe bounded into the booth. His
cross marks were made with lightning
rapidity, and he got in his ballot right
on the Last stroke. He will return to
Cuba to complete the business he
dropped to come back to vote. And yet
ihere were some thousands of people in
Providence who, 1 have no doubt, forgot
to go to the polls or were "too busy" to
give the time required for walking to.
the wardroom. Cor. Boston Globe.
Canoeing In Scotland.
Lord and Lady Mount Stephen, who
have spent very many years in Canada,
have introduced canoeing in Scotland.
They have taken the beautiful estate of
Faskally, Perthshire, belonging to Mrs.
Butler, which comprises a stretch of the
picturesque river, Tummel, which runs
through the Pass of Killiecrankie to
Athole and all that district, and, in order
to explore more fully, Lord Mount
Stephen has brought home a Canadian
canoe and two real Canadian boatmen.
They have already shot some of the
dangerous rapids of the Scotch river, and
been investigating the salmon pools
among the bowlders in otherwise unseen
spots. Lord Mount Stephen intends to
use his canoe later on for salmon fisliing.
The novelty has created a great deal of
interest in the neighborhood, extending
to the ducal party at Blair Athol castle.
Utah's First Pavements.
After a 1 ig fight in the Ogden city
council o . er the relative merits of sand
stone, brick and asphaltum for street
paving purposes, it has been decided to
use native sandstone from the quarries
a few miles distant from Ogden, and
that only home labor shall be employed
by contract. The district to be paved
includes a number of blocks in the busi
ness part of town, for which paving
bonds are now being negotiated. It will
be the first paving done by this city or
in this territory. Utah Cor. St. Louis
A Priceless Diamond Found.
A remarkable diamond has been re
cently found on the Koffeyfontein Dia
mond Mining company's ground in Aus
tralia, which appears to be of such value
that even competent judges hesitate to
name a price commensurate with its
worth. It is said to be of a beautiful
shade of pink, entirely devoid of spot or
blemish, and to weigh 13 carats.
Natural Gm in Utah.
A flow of natural gas has been struck
at Salt Lake City at a depth of 600 feet,
the pressure being 160 pounds to the

with favorable indications of finding the
gas in considerable quantities. New
Pig Iron In March.
In the first week in March the iron
furnaces in this country are said to have
produced more pigs 193,900 tons than
in any previous week in history. One
curious circumstance is that there were
fewer furnaces in blast than in the pre
ceding month. New York Times.
The largest shipment of apples ever

which carried more than 13,000 barrels

THE REAL LOBBYIST. I
THE WOMEN ARE NUISANCES JUST
THE SAME AS THE MEN ARE.
There Has Iteen a Great Deal of Ilomaoce
Circulated About the Lobbyists, and It
Is Time Tli at the Truth WTaa Known.
The Real Tiling la Very Disappointing.
"Show me a lobbyist" was the request
of a friend who was walking through
the Capitol with the writer. This visitor
was a reader of the newspapers, a man
of intelligence, and a believer in most of
the interesting stories he had read nlout
the number, ingenuity, boldness, skill
snd usefulness of the body of lobbyists
that is supposed to be almost a necessary
part of the legislative machinery.
I showed my visitor a lobbyist. lie
was one of the best known of the lot
about the Capitol. lie was leaning bai l:
against the corridor wall, opposi:e the
entrance of the house of representative;.,
with his hands thrust into the pockets of
a pair of trousers tliat were so raveled
about the heels that they might be sai".
to wear whiskers without provoking the
remonstrances of the most thorough de
tester of 6lang.
If this man had an overcoat it was
hung up somewhere, but the dusty con
dition of his rather thin frock coat,
which carried the polish on its back that
ought to have been on his very disrepu
table looking 6Uoes, justified the conclu
sion that he was not finding an overcoat
necessary this winter. He was a spare
man, with a gaunt face, crossed by a
white mustache stained at the ends with
tobacco juice. His shirt was not clean,
and he showed a good deal of it, but he
wore a white tie, which only added em
phasis to his otherwise forbidding lack
of neatness. When he moved away
from his place against the wall to meet
a member of congress who had come out
of the chamber upon the call of one of
the doorkeepers to see him, his gait was
a slouching one, and he might have been
mistaken for any other loafer about the
hall if he had not been so much more re
pulsive than the others.
My friend was disappointed. He
could not understand when 1 told him
that this man was one of the best of the
lot of lobbyists about the Capitol, that
he had been a member of congress, that
he was, therefore, entitled to the privi
lege of the floor, and that the house of
representatives has never yet had the
sense to makes its rules so strong as to
keep out this man and several others
J'ust like him who are well known to be
lothing more than strikers and lobbyists
who linger here to pick up odd jobs to
help them hang on to a miserable exist
ence. They do not, one ought to be
thankful, thrive as they are popalarly
supposed to do. If the public knew what
a mistake the professional lobbyist is
they would be driven to sawing wood or
working on the railroads, or into doing
some other useful and laborious busi
ness. Then I showed my friend another lob
byist. This was a thin, sliding fellow,
with a gray close beard, who toed in as
he walked quickly along the passage,
and who glanced furtively about as he
went, as if watching to pounce down
upon some one. This man was not an
ex-member of congress; but he had
been an employee of the house many
years ago, and had been caught taking
money to enable a corporation to reach,
through the door of which he had
charge, the men who were to be pur
chased to get through a subsidy bill.
He was dismissed, and he at once went
into the service of the corporation that
had led to his disgrace.
He is in that employment still, and he
associates with a great many senators
and representatives who do not know, or
have forgotten that others know, his
odious history. He is an errand runner
and a' sneaking watcher of members
who are to be encouraged to vote this
way or the. other on bills to be reported
or killed. He would buy a member
without hesitation if it were 6af e to buy
him, but he is cautious. He finds out
his venal man before taking any risks.
He is not ingenious, nor is he bold. He
follows the instructions of the corpora
tions that keep him here, and he gets off
in the course of the year very well in
deed if he does not get kicked out of a
gentleman's house more than half a
The female lobbyist is, generally
speaking, a myth. The women who
come to the Capitol as promoters of the
bills for pensions or for claims, come on
their own account, and the only skill
they exhibit is that which consists in so
persistently bothering the members who
have introduced their bills for them that
they undertake to have them passed in
order to get rid of terrible afflictions.
The marvelous woman of charming
manners that cannot be resisted is to be
found only in the syndicate stories. The
women who undertake to promote legis
lation are, almost without exception,
bunglers and failures. Few women
know enough about the ways of legisla
tion or the ways of the legislators to
qualify them to undertake lobby work
or to approach members to direct their
actions, except by the most vulgar spe
cies of blackmail made possible by con
Generally speaking, the lobbyist is a
fraud and an unnecessary nuisance. . He
exists mainly because most people do
not know anything about the methods
ef legislation, and because nearly every
body interested in a bill not public be
lieves that the lobbyist is a creature who
can tide over difficulties and remove
them. As a rule the employment of one
of the throng of disreputable lobbyists,
and most of them are disreputable on
their faces, is prejudicial to the legisla
tion they are employed to promote.
They thrive on account of the general
ignorance about the legislative methods
of procedure. Washingson Cor. Provi

In ike Country Banra.
Born of the snowbound passengers at
one of the depots near Utica were tell
ing stories the other day, and a travel
ing man was relating his experience in
a country store in a small town in Jef
ferson county, lie said he was thei-e
nearly the entire forenoon, and had oc
casion to note tho teculiarities of the
storekeeper, who carried a general stock,
but a pretty small one. Every little
while a customer would come into the
store and inquire for some article that
the merchant did not happen to have in
sttK-k. For instance:
"Have you any dried beef, Mr. Cash
drawer?" "No, we have no dried tieef today,
but we have some nice codfish. John,
show this lady the codfish."
"Do you keep any Buch thing as wicks
for those big. round lamp burners?"
"We generally do, but happen to lo
out just now. We have some tine cot
ton clotheslines, though. John, show
the gentleman tho clotheslines."
"My gals wanted me to bring them
home some confectioner's sugar. Have
you got any of it, Cashdravver?"
"Sold the last ounce about an hour
ago, Henry. We've got an excellent
quality of toilet soap, though. John,
6how Mr. Adams the soap."
"Do yon keep ready made flannel
"Have had them all winter, and sold
three to a lady yesterday, which cleaned
the stock out. But we have a large sup

Civilization and Wilderness.
Upon the 1 ,500 miles of the shore of
Lake Superior there are living now less
than ,150,000 persons, and these are
mainly in bustling cities like Duluth.
Superior and Marquette, in industrial
colonies like Calumet and Red Jacket,
or in struggling little porta like Fort
William and Port Arthur. Even there
the wilderness and primeval conditions
are face to face with the robust civiliza
tion which is shouldering its way as cap
ital is accustomed to do rather than as
natural growth usually asserts itself.
Not that it is not a wholly natural growth
which we find at all points on the Like
shore, for it is all in response to the inex
orable laws of supply and demand. Yet
the communities there have sprung into
being far apart from well settled regisns
in answer to these laws.
Thus it happens that today one may
ride in an electric street car to the start
ing point for a short walk to a trout
stream, or one may take the steam rail
road and in an hour alight at a forest
station, breakfasting there, but enjoy
ing for luncheon a cut of the deer or a
dish of the trout or the partridge which
he has killed for the purpose. It is, bo
to say, a region wherein the wholesale
fisherman with his steamboat disturbs
the red man who is spearing a fish for
trapper, where the wolf blinks in the
glare of the electric lamp, and where the
patent stump puller and the beaver work
side by side. Julian Ralph in Harper's
TVe Moqul Indiana.
A hundred miles north of the Petrified
forest and well into the edge of the Ari
zona desert are the seven strange and
seldom visited Pueblo cities. of MoquL
They all ha o wildly unpronounceable
names, like txualpi, A-hua-tu and Mish-ongop-avi,
and all are built on the sum
mits of almost inaccessible mesas
islands of solid rock, whose generally
perpendicular cliff walls rie high from
the surrounding plain. They are very
remarkable towns in appearance, set
nron dizzy sites, with quaint terraced
houses of adobe, and queer little corrals
for the animals in nooks and angles of
the cliff, and giving far outlook across
the browns and yellows and the spectral
peaks of that weird plain. But they
look not half so remarkable as they are.
The most remote from civilization of
all the Pueblos, the least affected by the
Spanish influence which so wonderfully
ruled over the enormous area of the
southwest, and practically untouched by
the later Saxon influence, the Indians of
the Moqui towns retain almost entirely
their wonderful customs of before the
conquest. Their languages are different
from those of any other of the Pueblos;
and their mode of life though to a hasty
glance the same is in many ways un
like that of their brethren in New Mex
ico. Charles F. Luininis in St. Nicholas
A Detroit Man's Cane.
A Detroit man has a novel walking
cane that represents the work of odd
hours every day for six weeks. It is
made of old postage stamps of various
denominations and six nationalities
Cnited States, Canadian, English.
French, German and Italian. It took
5,014 stamps to make a cane. The face
value of the stamps was $100. The sur
face of the cane, when the stamps were
all on, was filed smooth and finished un
til it glazed. A heavy gold knob com
pletes one of the handsomest and most
unique canes ever seen in Detroit.
Telling the Bees.
The curious custom of "telling the
bees" is observed in some parts of nearly
every country in the world. Those who
observe the custom always go to the bee
hives and tap gently on each one, then
stoop and whisper under the cap or lid
that Mary, Jane, Thoma3 or William is
dead. This is done to keep the little
honeymakers from forsaking their place
of abode should they have to wait and
find out the news of the calamity them
selves. The custom is alluded to in
Whittier's poem, "Telling the Bees."
St. Louis Republic
East and West.
The failure of the people of the Atlan
tic states to understand the area, condi
tions, products and needs of the west is
not infrequently illustrated in national
legislation. The late Editor Bundy, of
the New York Mail and Express, said a
short time before his death:
"The people of the east know little
about the west, but I have always found
that the people of the west were well in
formed about the east." San Francisco
