Norwegian H( nesty. t
One winter's day, some, years ago,
a couple of young mc n were sitting
in London talking c f their travels
during the summer.8 One of them
had been in Norway an? could not
sufficiently praise tho honesty of the
Norwegian peasants and their readi
ness in jiidging. chanijtter If 1 am
a well-dressed person and look like
a gentleman I can travel through
the whole country 11'; .my chariole
without paying & ; Denny for the
horses. I need only say: 'The one
who comes on behind will pay.'"
That was too much fols the other,
and it ended in a hea ybtthat they
should go together through Norway,
buy their own charidbs,i,and travel
through the countfy, the first ot
them half a day in udvnce of the
other, without a sinsle 4iennv in his
pocket; the other : sLould follow be
hind and pay. 1 I
The following summer! they went
to Norway, got their( charioles, and
started on their trip. But at the
very first station the Englishman
who had expatiated upon the non
esty of the Norwegians! got into a
fax; he had forgotten what the mag
ic words were in Norwegian. He
could not pay thet p ostfcoy. neither
could he say: ' I he, one who comes
on behind will pay,'J , x onunately a
merchant from Chris tiania came to
the rescue. The lE?aglish.man told
him about the bet,Efcponj which the
merchant . informed, hnig what the
w ords were in Norwegian The Eng
lishman repeated them td the post
boy and they nad at once the desired
effect. The'boy was ; saiisfied, and
said it would no doubt 'fee all right

however, thought it woold be best
for the credit of the i coUti y to let

one was to trouMe Ijim about
money, for on being illowed to con

win tlie bet. The bW undertook to
do this, and all the postboys and

the joke immenseljr, without betray
ing that they knew inyf hing about
the affair. And sdPif happened that
the Engflshman 'tnveled through

The effort to inaugurate constitution
al prohibitioD , in Massachusetts has
sustained a crushing defeat. . The ad
verse majority is little less than the
highest estimate inade in advance of
the opponents ' of the amenement.
Many conservative persons had predic
ted a majority of 15, 000. The moat
sanguine of its opponents hoped for
50,000. The majority exceeds 44,000
on a light vote a defeat so emphatic
that it seems to have completely dis
concerted the prohibitionists. The
lightness of the vote is in itself a sur
prise, following a campaign of extraor
dinary earnestness. It would seem to
prove that a largo number refrained
from voting who could not support the
amendment and yet were unwilling to
oppose it openly.
A significant feature of the canvass
was that many fought the amendment
who, nevertheless, were on record as
favoring prohibition in their own
localities. The great majority of
these doubtless disapproved it because
they believed universal prohibition to
be an impossibility, and not because
they were opposed to that policy under
conditions where they thought it could
be made successful. This fact is strik
ingly shown in the returns. For ex
ample, Cambridge, which voted pro
hibition for itself under the local-option
law not long ago by 4,483 to 3,819,
voted against prohibition for the state
by 4,621 to 1,983. In other words,
nearly 2,500 voters in the university
town who voted no license did not vote
for constitutional prohibition. Pre
cisely the same result was seen ia a
number of other cities, which lately
voted no license and now vote against
prohibition. Almost every city in the
state voted no and only one congres
sional district out of twelve voted yes.
The strength of the opposition was not
seen only in the cities, but in many
small towns and rural districts ae weil.
The adverse majority was one-fifth of
the total vote. This result is the more
significant when it is remembered that
the campaign against tne amendment
has been confined to the newspapers.
Its advocates have held hundreds of
meetings, but not one has been called
by the opposition. It i3 also to be
borne in mind that the verdict cannot
be charged to the "rum power." A
large proportion of the opposition
came from the most intelligent and
moral classes in the state, including
those who believe in high license, as
well as those who believe in local but
not general prohibition.
This unexpectedly decisive vote, fol
lowing the defeat of the prohibition
amendment in New-Hampshire, and
the vote to resubmit it in Rhode Is
land, must be taken as increased evi
dence that the policy of general pro
hibition is losing ground in N"ew-Engr
land, in iNew-Mampsnire, aitnougn a
law prohibiting the sale of liquor has
been on the statute-book more than
thirty-four years, an amendment to the
constitution to forbid its manufacture
as well as sale not only failed to secure
the requisite majority, as New-Hampshire
majorities go. In Khode Island
the vote to resubmit, after-three years'
trial of tne system ,is an even more
Massachusetts is the seventh state to
refuse in the last two years to adopt a
prohibition amendment, following
Michigan, Texas," Tennessee, " Oregon,
West Virginia and New-Hampshire.
The next to be heard from is the great
state of Pennsylvania, which will vote
on the 18th day of June. At the time
the date of the special election was first
fixed, . predictions were rife that the
amendment would be adopted, but is is
apparent that the tide of expectation
has turned, and its defeat is now looked
for. Sixteen years ago forty of the
sixty-four counties voted against
license, and twenty-four for it the
latter, however, including the large
cities wnicn are expected to record a
heavy verdict now against the amend
ment. In Pennsylvania, as in Massa
chusetts, the amendment will be
opposed by a large body of temperance
men, because thev believe it does not
embody the best method of dealing
with the liquor problem. Ihe great
reduction in the number of saloons,
and the diminution of crime, under the
Brooks high-license law, will make
many unwilling to exchange a tried
and successful system for an experi
ment of doubtful issue. inew York

"Old Fly" was born in 185 and was
reared on the farm of George A. Bar

ia the month, of June, lobl, Mr. .Barrett
presented Fly to his son, George M.,
under whom she was mustered into tne
service of the United States in Compa
ny B. First Indiana Cavalry, at Evans-
ville, Ind., July 21, 1861. Ridden by
her owner, Fly was in the following
battles of the war of the rebellion:
Frederickstown, Mo. ; Round Hill, Ark. ;
Helena, Ark. ; Oakland, Miss. ; Little
Rock, Ark.. Pine Bluff, Ark.; Mount
Elba, Ark. Mark's Mill, Ark., and in
numerable skirmishes. She was in
the army three years and two months,
having been mustered out of service
at Indianapolis, Ind., in the month of
September, 1864. During her term in
the service she was ever ready for
duty and did her full share. Mr. A.
W. Barrett, of Stewartsville, Ind.,
writes: "Old Fly is still living at

though she is thirty-four " years old
and has not lain down by herself for
three or four years, she is seemingly
full of life and vigor, and is ready for

Politeness in Mexico.
Speaking of the universal politeness
in Spanish lands, F. Hopkinson Smith
tells a story of an incident in Mexico:
"An old woman, barefooted, ragged and
dust begrimed, leaning upon a staff,
once preceded me up a narrow,
crooked street. She looked like an
animated fish-net hung on a fence to
dry, so ragged and emaciated was she.
A young Indian one-half her age
crossed her tracks as she turned into a
side street. Instantly he removed his
hat and saluted her as if she had been
Queen of Sheba. 'A s pies de usted,
senora (at your feet, lady), I heard
him say as he passed. 'Bese usted los

our work without kicking uo anv
cloud of dust. Brag is alright in its
way, but we don't propose to come out
with a double-leaded, scare-head, arti

front gate. Booms are good enough
in their way, but there must be merit
behind them. With no disposition to
claim th!B as the only growing town in
Arizona, and with no desire to kill the
growth of rival towns, we humbly call
attention to the fact that since Jan. 1
fourteen new saloons, three poker
rooms, and four retail tobacco 6tores
have been opened in the place, and at
the present moment eignteea men are
engaged in building a jail capable of
accommodating thirty prisoners. We
have done all this without any brag or
bluster, and we propose to keep right
on in the same quiet fashion, leaving
tho ontside world to judge for itself as
to where it shall seek new homes and
invest its capital.
It Pays. Several months ago we es
tablished a grocery and feed store in
connection with the Kicker. The
effete dailies of the metropolis predict
ed a dismal failure, but the result
shows that they were mistaken. We
figured that this other business would
be just what was needed to distract our
minds from the harassing thoughts of
editorially nunning this country, and
that we would be all the better and

clerk to assist us. Ihe editorial en
titled "Advice to the President" was

What a liar! The Kicker practice
bulldozing! The idea is laughable,
and if he was worth minding we should
walk down to his shanty and choke
the assertion down his brazen throat
There used to be several firms here
which didn't believe in advertising.
We couldn't make 'em believe in it
until we went at it and found out that
they were composed of gentlemen: who
had skipped from the east for barn
burning, horse-stealing; bigamy, em-
beazlement, etc. Then we wrestled
with 'em and they came to see that the
life of trade was in using printers ink.
We simply convinced not bulldozed.
The efforts of our knock-kneed oon
temporary to smirch the fair fame of
the Kicker will simply call forth smil?
of pity. Detroit tree Press.

Four Degrees in Drunkenness.
There are four degrees of intemper-
ence, and before l finally gave up
drinking I had taken them all. Tho
first is the lamb degree. This is taken
by men who drink simply for sociabil
ity, and is usually of a mild nature.
The second is the monkey degree.
When a man takes this degree he usu
ally can tell a better story and amuse a
larger crowd by his pranks and antics
than he can when in his normal condi
tion. The third is the lion degree.
When a man is initated in this degree
lie becomes bold and disregards every
one's will but his own. He beats his
wife and wants to fight his neighbor.
When he is admitted to the last degree
he becomes like a hog. Sam SmalL

President Harrison has auietlr "set
down upon" all suggestions as to Sun
day conferences at the white honse.
When he first took possession of the
oflice he now oclmues some of his
friends, with the habits of his immedi
ate predecessor in view, and forgetting
President Harrison's character, asked
to have interviews on Sundays. The
president admitted some of them for
social intercourse, but : when they
broached , politics , there was an end to
the conversation. General Harrison
has never discussed politics or business
on Sunday, and he is not inclined to
oegin it at this time, especially when lie
has to live on it six days and nights in
the week. Those who have had the
hardihood to attempt to speak of official
matters when they caught him on the
street, going to or from church, hare
not mentioned their rebukes to their
friends. Quito a number of times poli
ticians have been received at the white
house on Saturday nishta to talk poli
tics, but their conferences have invaria
bly ended with the week day.

Still a Puzzle.
It is rather surprising that we cannot
yet positively answer the old question.
Why is the sky blue? Trof. Tvndall
explained the color as dne to the small
ness of the solid particles in the air,
which are thus able to reflect only rays
of short wave length; but a later investi
gator, Prof. Hartley, believes that the
mysterious ozone exercises some influ
ence on the rays, as a small quantity of

Don't Dos; the Cows.
Everv one who has anything to do
with a cow should learn thoroughly this
fact: that every annoyance and thing
that excites and frets her takes a pro
portion from both the amount and rich
ness of her yield, and in just so much
takes money from her owner s pocket.
A man who will permit it to be done,
much less, himself dog the cows home
from the pasture or kick and clnb them
about the barn or yards, is not a fit per
son to own or have charge of cows. It
is not only cruel to the defenseless cow,
but is ruinous to his own finances, a
