His tobo hojH)d th fit Uio city papers
will give President Cleveland's baby a rest
As a piooo of news it was agreeable at
tho time but to keep It up sis dujs in the
week and twico on Kunday, it becomes
obnoxious, nnd any way, why ebould
Cleveland's baby bo toted n'round in tlio
rpreB any moro tlmn uny other follows
The postmuBler ot HoGcinont bun been
nu invalid for about ton yearn from ef
fects of disease contracted in thu war.
Recently lio made uiplieation for n
pension which wan rejected on the
grounds tbut ho wuh not incapacitated
for labor and yet butt not dono a day's
work in ten years. Ho was an old sold,
ier that guvo his best days lo tho per
petuation ot tho government, and now
Hoke Smith and his crowd tarn him
down. A few moro rejections liko this
ono and Mr. Cleveland's administration
will become odious lo old soldiers.
"Which is tlio worst statement to
be hcrsldod ovr tlio. country ? The
tho truthful statement of the Journal
correspondent in regard lo burning of
a houso of ill fame and the previous
notioo put up signed ''white caps," or
tbo statement made by the Argus that
our VI year old boys arc so tough that
they visit theso places. Which state
ment will do the most good or the
most harm? lJ.lt.
Tho Belt seems to bo giving 'ho
Argus a lift handed li-k over tho
broad shoulders of Tiik CaiKF. In
reply however, to tho nbovo quotation
wo shall statu without fear or favor,
that both statements nro injurious to
tho city, and wo bclicvo without a
eh ado w of foundation. Wo havo no
pets among tho newspapers of lied
Cloud, but havo a ready pen to do
fend any arscrtion nudo by any of
our contemporaries which would ele
vate tho city in tho estimation of the
publio, and the sarrio kind of a pen
that is equally us ready to protest
against any statement that is made dc
togatory to Ked Cloud by any of them.
Tub Chirp has never believed that a
class of so called whito capB ever exist
ed in lied Cloud, neither does it bo
licvo that 12 year old bojB visit such
dens of iniquity, and no believe that
suoh statements made by the public
press injures rnther than elevates the
good name of our city. Now, Coxy
old boy, don't do so any more nnd tho
Big Injun will forgive you.
' Olp Settlkiib Picnic: Tho old
Bottlers picnic was one of the grandest

tertained tbo pcoplo with a brilliant
account of the early settlement of this
county. After Mr. Gilliam had fin
ished, tbo old sott!c formed an or
ganization to meet at this placa ono
yoar from tbo day of the picnic
Most of tho old settlers wcro enrolled
as members of tho orgnn'zttion, after
which Mr. Joe Garbor cutcrtaincd the
peoplowith a brilliant address. Ho
was followed by Mr. Knight a good
nd interesting speaker. Numerous
other speakers made brilliant debute?,
among them being two ladies, Kvery

Antiquity of tho l'euch.
The peach is an improved variety of
tho almond. Tho almond hns u thin
bhell around tho btono, which splits
open and exposes tho htouu when ma
ttlre. This outer hkin bus himply be
come fleshy in tho peach, to that is all
that gives it its s.piciilo character. It
seems now clear from investigation
in tho history of ancient llabylon that
in their gardens, now-nearly four thou
sand years ngo, tho peach wus cultivut
cd then us it is now. It must have
been many years buforo this that tlio
punch was improved from tho almond,
nnd this fnct goes to show tho great
antiquity of tbo fruit.
Although ono naturally supposes to
and generally docb find tho genus places
inhabiting tho water bolely, there aro
curious exceptions to tho rulo. An In
Btanco inuy bo cited in tho bpecles
known ns the "climbing perch," which
not only travels long dlstunccs over
dry land which separates ono stream
from nnothor, but Is likely to climb a
tree whenever the opportunity affords.
Tho curious creature has n peculiar ar
rangement of tho upper purt of tho
bend, which is provided with wntcr
cells, tho fish using this store of water
to keep his gills moist on a truvoliuff
expedition or a climbing tour.
The Mooiii of Mars.
Tho most interesting of nil moons
are tho two that attend Mars, ouch
about sixty miles in dlamoter. 'Shut
planet is just ono-hnlf tho sizo of the
earth; its surfaeu is divided into conti
nents und sens, having as much land us
wuter; It bus tin utmosphore, clouds
frequently concealing its face, nnd Its
beasons nro about tbo sumo as hero,
though tho winters nro colder, lie
cnuso ono uf tho moons travels urouml
it tbreo times us fust ns Mars itself
turns, it uppeurs to rise in tbo west und
set in the eust, whilo tho other, really
circling in tbo sumo direction ut u
bpeed comparatively slow, rises m tho
east und bets in tho west. Thus both
moons nro been in tlio heavens ut tho
samo time, golug opposite ways.

FORCING AN ENTRANCE AT FEZ.
rimlnB Through the (Into of a Morocco
Town nt Midnight.
Whilo Mr. llonsal, tho author of
"Morocco ns it is,"wus in Pez, he wont
out rif tho city ono ovoning todino with
the members of tho English mission
and returned nt midnight with llonzzn,
u servant. Mr. llonsal was on his horso
llussiiu, while 1 ton zzn went before him
on foot with ti lantern, the night being
pitch-dark. When they reached tlio
guto of tho city It was shut, though It
was etlll nn hour beforo closing time.
Thoy knocked for ten minutes, but no
ono appenrcd. Then thoy rapped at
tho guard houso iu tho palnco of tho
bashaw, nbout fifty yurds from tlio
gate. Hero tho keys wero usually
kept. The guards came out, about a
dozen lu number, and nfter examining
tho faces of the two mon with lanterns,
went back into the guard houso and
slammod tho door. Mr. llonsal thua
narrates what followed:
"Wo knocked again and soon tho
whole neighborhood was aroused nnd
denounced us in unmeasured terms
from tho windows. Finally the gunrds
ngnln throw opon tho doors, and this
time, as they camo up, I noticed that
thoy wcro armed. Six of them at leust
had rifles, three or four presented pis
tols, and tho rest carried bludgeons.
They told us if wo did not go away
Ufoy would shoot.
r "Uoazza, my muleteer, stood his
ground manfully. At last, as tho men
continued to gather around mo in a
most threatening manner, I drew my
pistols nnd covered th.n. It must
have been amusing to look ut. but It
wns not amusing to live through. For
fully throo minutes not iv bound was
"I am afraid I lost my temper, and
certainly tho provocation was great. I
remembered riding up to tho cold of
the guard and giving him a sound box
on tho ears.
'Uoazza and I wcro shouting for tho
key ull tho while and tho guards wero
loud in tho expression of a wish to soo
my grandmother burned. Suddenly
they inado unanimously for tho door,
as I thought, to get the key. Uoazza
was qutck-wlttod, and ns they turned
to closo the door in our faces he put his
foot on tho threshold and got it well
smashed for his pains.
"Seeing that their idea wns to let us
spend tho night in tho dirty street, I
put my horso against the door, wliiuh
Uoazza hud succeeded in hooping n few
inches open. The noxt moment tho
door gnve wny, and to the unspeakablo
surprise of tho guards, my horso and I,
closely followed by Uoazza, wero pa
rading in tho most magnificent manner
inside the guard house.
"Hassan was ns much surprised ns
his rider, which is saying n good deul,
nnd prancing nud kicking about, con
trived to do no littlo dnmage. Two
beautiful tiled tables, upon which tho
caid was taking bis midnight tea, wero
kicked into smithereens. Cups and.
saucers wero broken, and he pranced
nbout on tbo Zlinmoor rugs us if, those
iicnuliful carpets were his nightly
"Tlio gunrds, myself nnd Uoazza
scntednrmsiigaiii for about five min
utes, somewhat nftor tho menacing
fashion of rival armies In Italian opera.
I soon discovered that tho old cuhl In
cbnrgo of the night guard was its weak
est member, und so, catching him by
the ear, Riving it n good tug, I placed
my pistol close to his templo nnd ex
plained that unless the keys of the guto
wcro forthcoming Iu very short oidcr
thero would bo bloodshed.
"Tho cuhl wns much flustered. Ilo
swore that no insult had been intended;
that the keys wero under tbo bashnw's
pillow and could not bo got. I re
mained obdurate nnd finally ho sont tv
soldier upstairs ufter them. Mennwhih;
wo stood in statuesque pose, tbo Moor)
covering me with their rltlcs, and T
witli tho shining barrel of my revolver
within six inches of the old caid's bald
"Then tho Roldlorrcturncd, and with
him camo tbo most repulslvo looking
old rcprobnto thnt I hnd ever seen. It
wns thu bashaw himself. He bad beon
disturbed In his sleep; his oyc3 wero
bloodshot, and his tinder lip hung over
liko u hound's. Ho carried a candle,'
which he held up, nnd studied my face
with an expression of concentrated
hatred such as I hopo I may novcr ex
cite ngnln. i
"My uttitudo of murderous mennco
wns growing wearisome, when tho ba
