Saquired a Good Deal of Diplomacy
on Her Part, But She Thought
It Worth the Trouble.
Chicago News: Long before Aunt
Mary arrived on a visit to her favorite
nephew and his young wife. Dick had
poured Into his wife's ears wonderous
tales of Aunt Mary's prowess over oven
and pantry. None of his tales, what
ever they might begin with or contain,
ever failed to end up with "auntie's
.dcughnuta." Whereupon Kathie, whose
cooking school doughnuts had appear
ed once since her wedding day and been
frowned upon, decided to get Aunt
Mary's recipe.
But it was Aunt Mary's first visit to
the city, and she was an Intelligent old
lady, who knew what things of interest
the city contained. So Kathie saw the
public library for the first time, and the
stock yards and other sights. So It was
that on the day of departure, when
Aunt Mary, her trunk gone and her
bonnet on, was wondering how much
the cabman was going to make her miss
the train, Kathie cried out with a lit
tle, scream: "Oh, Aunt Mary, the
doughnuts! The doughnuts!"
"Yes, child, bless me, yes," said Aunt
Mary, In a fright "How you scared me!
Sit right down and I'll tell you how it
la. It's right on my tongue."
So Kathie, with pencil and notebook,
sat down before the old lady.
"You must have your lard the right
heat, child," began the old lady, "or you
might as well not have your dough
made up. It shouldn't be too hot, or the
outside will burn and leave the Inside
raw, but if It Isn't hot enough the
grease will soak right In and make It
fit for pigs and not for humans."
"What temperature. Aunt Mary?"
asked Kathie, capably. "I have my
kitchen thermometer, you know."
"Kitchen thermometer?" repeated
Aunt Mary, inquiringly. "Oh, yes, of
course; and a good place for it Now,
my lard I put on to heat when I start
my dough. That's good time to allow, i
for I don t rush nor yet dilly-dally,"
"Just how long does it take the lard
to heat, Aunt Mary?"
"That's what I'm telling you, dear,"
said Aunt Mary, pityingly. "As long
as it takes me to make a batch, and the
amount of lard depends on hew much
you have to fry. A good half kettle
ful is about enough."
Kathie thought despairingly of her
kettles, running the gamut from pint
to five-gallon sizes, but she held her
"Now for the doughnuts," went on
Aunt Mary. "I take two or three
But Kathie Interrupted: "For an ex
act recipe. Aunt Mary, please."
"That's exact child," she said, testi
ly. "Eggs ain't the same size always.
It's two or three eggs, according to size,
broken In a bowl with some sugar not
too much and a little melted lard dln-
! ped out of your kettle, and some milk.
Be careful not to get In too much for
your eggs. And some salt and baking
powder "
"About how much milk. Aunt Mary?"
"Dearie," said Aunt Mary, with great
patience, "I have my crock of milk set
ting bandy, and I just take up and pour
'out till I have enough to go with my
sugar and eggs. Then put in flour till
It's right, and roll them cut and into
.twists and fry 'em, and If you follow
this recipe you 11 never falL Now,
dearie, that carrtageman!"
"Aunt Mary," said Kathie, firmly,
"Dick doejm't like my doughnuts, and
there's another train In two hours, and
the cab came while you were talking!
and I waved It away, and I want you '
to come and measure out a batch of
those doughnuts and get the lard heat
ed right, and then Dick will be satis
ed." Kathle's new recipe reads like a
weird nightmare, with Its items of
"beef extract Jar of melted lard," "blue
granite spoon of baking powder,' and
all the rest For Aunt Mary measured
by faith and then Kathie measured by
sight Also when Aunt Mary was not
looking the kitchen thermometer play
ed its important part in fixing the right
degree of heat for the lard kettle. But
the doughnuts came out right In spite
of their manifold handling, and the
recipe. In spite of the fact that quanti
ties have not yet been reduced to
proper terms, has not failed. So for
several Sunday nights Dick has risen
np after supper and called his wife the '
blessed est of women.

New Orleans Times - Democrat:
"Revenge Is evidently a sweet sort of
thing," said an observant citizen, "and
1 have known of a number of Instances
which amply prove the fact Men seem
to be naturally inclined to even up the
score. An old grudge, an old feeling of
dislike, an old family difference, an old
feud, or something of that son:, will
afford a good opportunity for a display
of the revengeful Impulse which lies in
most natures, and the only thing need
ed is some exciting incident and a
good chance to get even. I recall a
number of cases of this sort, and they
give a good Ciflnltiin of what the word
revenge really m.-ana.
"Up in Arkansas there was a fellow
who started out in life as a book agent,
and on one occasion just after the war
a very aristocratic ladv slammed a
door In his face. He said he would be
revenged. He was. He converted the
home Into a graveyard In after yearn
and robbed and cheated the helrs-at-law
of the lady who had offended him
until they were classed among the
poorest of the poor. He became a law
yer, made a specialty of land titles, and
found a world of defects in titles based
on the old Spanish grant, and became
Immensely rich. He was finally assas
sinated because of the spirit of oppres
sion which he had cultivated, and the
man who killed him was never tried for
the offense.
"Eut I was thinking of a Louisiana
case. This Is the case of a Hebrew, and
it develops a story which is somewhat
contradictory of the general under
standing of the 'Shylock" character,
even In this enlightened day. He was
turned out on the cold world with his
family. His goods and chattels were
dumped Into the yard of the place
where he had lived, because of some
small misfortune. He, too, swore re
venge. He made money. He bought
the place In after years. The wheel
of fortune had turned. The man who
had put him out had fallen upon a bad
condition. His finances ran down. He
lost money and was reduced to an un
happy condition. He was forced to sell
the place which had been occupied by
the Jew in the erstwhile. The Jew
bought It He found the man's wife
Hying In the place. Tbe manhad died.
When he visited the place after buying
It he was surprised to find the wife
of the man who had treated him so In
considerately occupying the place. She
remembered him. He reminded her of
his ejectment many years before.
'But,' he added, 'I do not recall this
story In any spirit of unkiadness, and
I want to say now that you may occupy
this house as long as you like and use
the property as you please.'
"Revenge Is Indeed a sweet virtue
when It comes in this way, but, of
course, we do not always find it thus.
Sometimes it is bloody enough. Yet
revenge is a common sort of thing, and
I suppose most men crave it at one time
and another."
Twang Not Peculiar to Yankees Con
fined to Provincial Regions.
Boston Globe: The so-called "twang,"
which is popularly understood to be
characteristic of the New England
voice, is by no means peculiar to Yan
kees. Wherever It is found in New
England it is confined to provincial re
gions, and the Boston voice certainly
baa no distinctly nasal tone. In my
experience I have found that the west
ern voice is as nasal as the eastern,
and that the southern voice usually Is
free from ny "twang."
It is true, of course, that the Ameri
can voice is not so mellow as the Eng
lish, but this Is due to the fact that
tbe American, If untrained to speak or
sing, nas developed into a well-defined
habit, tightens tbe pharynx and sends
tee voice against the nasal passages,
instead of Discharging It In volume
from tbe mouth. In this respect the
English voice is more agreeable than
tie American, but the trained Ameri
can singing voice is superior to the
Indeed, I do not believe that there is
any language better fitted for musical
sound than the English, and I am con
fldent moreover, that there is no voice
naturally so well adapted for music as
toe American.
A very brief training only is neces
sary for the eradication of the nasal
tone In the American voice. This nasal
tone, so iv from being peculiar to New
England, Is observed as frequently in
persons from the West and I have
heard more twang from Kansas than
ever came out of New England.
Iti cannot be said that the American
twsng is due to climate, because It is
well known that the Indians have very
soft voices. It must be due to some
eccentricity in the eases in which, it Is
found. .The Boston voice I have found
to be entirely free from any twang. It
w tne nest voice in the country, on the
whole, and the diction of the cultivated
Boston I an Is more perfect than that of
any other type of American. People do
not generally understand the extent to
which diction affects the voice. Train
ing In clear, correct enunciation la apt
to produce an agreeable speaking voice,
even If It does not always result In a
gooa singing quality.
ids results of musical education in
this country thus far prove that the
capabilities of the American voice are
certainly as great aa those of anv other
voice of which we have knowledge. It
m true, nowever, that the Americans
will not apply themselves with the same
degre of industry as the Europeans ex
hibit When they have learned to do
this they will have demonstrated the
truth of the statement that there is no
voice superior to the American.

Washington Correspondency of -the
Philadelphia Times: The Tillman
McLaorin fist fight on the floor of the
senate recently caused the recital of
former affrays in congress.
Tbe nearest approach to a tragedy In
the senate was in 1850. At the con
clusion of a violent debate. Senator
Benton of Missouri bared his breast to
Senator Foote of Mississippi and dared
htm to shoot The exciting incident
arose out of the bitter ante-bellum de
hates. Foote had been remorselessly
attacking the motives and deeds of the
northern senators in their policy to
ward the South. This debate became
rery heated In -April. Oit Sept47 J
Senator Benton claimed that a certain
newspaper article had been supervised
and approved by Senator Foote. This
article represented to be a report of the
remarks indulged In by the Mississippi
senator personal to th senator from
In the midst of this debate. Senator
Foote Interrupted the senator from
Missouri, and for tbe time had the floor.
While he was making some reference
to Benton, the latter walked excitedly
toward him. The report of the affair
Is very explicit in stating that Senator
Benton was unarmed. He made no
sign of being about to make an assault,
but his angry face alarmed the sena
tor from Mississippi.
Senator Foote started to run away,
and Senator Benton Increased his
speed. As Benton came after him, Foote
hurried along and drew a five-chambered
revolver as he ran. Benton was in
full chase. He did notee the weapon,
but was apparently very anxious to
overtake Foote, Senator Dodge of Wis
consin reached Benton, and begged him
for God's sake to do nothing which
would compromise him with the sen
ate. Benton was finally persuaded
to turn and retrace bis steps. He looked
over bis shoulder, and caught the first
sight of the senator from Mississippi
with the revolve in his hand. This
aroused him to a frenzy of despera
tion. He brolt. away from Dodge and
rushed back at Foote. Tearing open his
waistcoat and his shirt, ho dared his
breast to the Mississippi senator, who
was brandishing the revolver In his
hand. He had cocked the weapon as
he turned, when he saw that he could
run no farther.
Benton stood within a few feet of
h.m, and with his naked bosom as a
target, dramatically cried to Foote:
"I am not armed.
"I have no pistol.
"I disdain to carry firearms.
"Let him Are.
"Stand; out of tha way and let the
assassin nre.
As may be Imagined, there was a
scene of the most intense excitement In
the old senate, now the chamber of the
han of Justice of the United States su
preme court Cowering at the front of
the president s desk was the thorough
ly frightened Foote. Towering over
him was the gigantic Benton. He was
In a rage that would have made the
gods proud. Slowly Foote wilted. He
sank Into a chair, and finally Dlckln
son, of New York, came and took the
revolver away from him.
A senate committee investigated the
matter and did not require the belliger
ents to apologize. The gist of the re
port was that the senators probably
felt badly enough and an apology was
not necessary. It was urgently recom
mended that the practice of carrying
concealed weapons in the senate be dls
pensed with.
One of the most famous fights In con
gress took place In the house in 18G0
and nearly led to a duel with bowie
knives between Roger A. Pryor, of Vir
ginia, and John F. Potter, of WIscon
sin. Judge Pryor, since became cele

of Maine, and bad acquired prominence
as lawyer in Wisconsin when he was
sent to congress to represent the First
district of Wisconsin, now represented
by Mr. Cooper, chairman of the com
mittee on insular affairs.
The altercation between him and
Judge Pryor occurred over a speech in
the house by Owen Lovejoy concern
ing the assassination of his brother
Elijah P. Lovejoy, at Alton, 111., for
denouncing slavery In bis newspaper.
LoveJoys speech was one of the strong

of excitement and tunta)t In which Pot
ter became Involved.
He struck Representative Barksdsto,
ot Mississippi, who wore a wig, some
thing not suspected by any member of
the house, and the hirsute adornment
went flying in one direction, while Its
owner went In another. As a result of
blows exchanged Judge Pryor challeng
ed Potter to a duel. Duels were more
common In those days than now, when
an appeal to the code duello is held In
derision. Pryor was rated an expert
pistol shot, which Potter learned, and
when the seconds of the Virginian
called upon the representative from
Wisconsin to ascertain what weapons
he desired to choose, he promptly said
bowie knives.
Lander, the husband of the celebrated
actress. Mrs. Lander, was a strong sym
pathizer -with the ause- which, -Potter-represented.
He was also an expert
duelist, and called upon Potter to give
him some valuable hints on the use of
the weapon he had selected for the pas-eage-at-arms.
He told Potter to drop
upon his right knee when he closed
with his opponent and defend himself
with his left arm, then thrust his bowie
Into his opponent's bowels and kill
"He may cripple you for life," said
Lander, "but you will kill him!"
Potter was fully determined to act
upon Lander's advice, but before the
critical moment arrived, when the two
men would face each other on tbe field
of honor, Pryors seconds threw up the
sponge by declaring that they could not
consent to let their principal fight with
such a barbarous weapon.
The only living survivor of the row
In tbe house, who 1p still a member of
congress, Is Representative Oalusha A.
Grow, of Pennsylvania, who tbe year
following was elected speaker. Mr.
Potter was subsequently American con
sul general at Montreal, and died last
year at his home, In Wisconsin, highly
respected, aged 80 years. It Is said be
was a man absolutely without fear and
would have gone upon the field .without
a tremor.
Model Community Is Called Vernal
and Appears to Be Successful.
Philadelphia North American: Hid
den away In the backwoods of Utah,
near the reservation of the Uintah In
dians, Is the one completely successful
model town In the United States.
The town Is called Vernal. One of
Its attractions is that there has never
been any local tax levied on the towns
people, for the reason that the sensible
system of city government provides a
perfectly adequate Income without the
necessity for taxation.
Nothing is given away by the city
government of Vernal. If and fran
chises or privileges are desired, they
must be paid for, and paid for at their
full value. Saloons are looked upon aa
a luxury that can well be dispensed
with, but as the town Is not a total ab
stinence community, the saloons are
allowed to exist by the payment of a
large fee to the treasury.
Crime is taxed to the utmost Fines
rather than imprisonment are the pun
ishment for evildoers. Inn trad of a
prisoner being supported for a term at
the expense of the city, he is mulcted in
a sum deemed commensurate with the
enormity of the offense, and the money,
goes to the town's exchequer.
In this way the burden of the city's
expenses Is placed on the shoulders ot
those who deserve to be made to bear
it, and the well-brmaved citizen, Instead
of suffering by the action of the wrong
doer In being compelled to support him
In Jail, actually benefits by his wrong
doing in the absence of taxation.
So proud are the citizens of Vernal ot
their model town that tbe city officials
almost Invariably turn back Into the
treasury the amounts received for sal
ary. The only man who Is really paid
oy me mwn ror nis work Is the c tv
marshal, who devotes his whole time to-
the duties of his office.
As mlrcht be expected, the town Is
splendidly laid out, pohseesing miles of
asphalted streets, one of the finest
school buildings In the west and ample
means for the building of more as they
are needed.
No breath of suspicion has ever been
directed at the officials of the town.
Their action In refusing to receive sal
aries might In Itself divert any suspi
cion of "boodling."
The town numbers about 4.000 ner-
sons, and, as Its admirable system of
government is attracting numbers to
