A minister of tho gospel who prided
himsulf on his complete control of his
temper was in tho habit of lecturing
other people on tho folly and wrung of
outbursts of passion. On 0110 occasion
n huge carmine-comploxioned boil lo
cated on tho nose of tho promulgator
of gospel truth, making him look to
tho casual obsorror liko a man who
looked upon tho wluo whon it was red
and stirrod itsolf aright. And tho
friends and acquaintances of tho pur
son who mot him guyed him about tho
appearance of his nostril, and as tho
boll was getting there in great shape
thoso remarks had a tendency to make
tho parson weary. When tho Mill man
g it of tno same gag about being sorry
that tho parson had taken to strong
drink, the theologian, who had boon a
center rush when ho was In college,
surprised tho justcr by grasping him
llrmly by the scruff of his neck nnd
tho seat of his pantaloons and drop
ping him on tho otlior side of 11 hitch
"I havo noticed on several occasions,"
said a bystaudor who had hoard the
parson talk about tho uoccsslty of
keeping ono's temper, "that a boll that
only lacks 4 couplo of days of boiug
ripe will knock any rulo galley west
There was a certain small man who
only weighed about 120 pounds, but
who loved whon among strangers to
work his jaw in a boastful manner.
One of the hobbies of this small man
was the necessity of a man being the
master of his own household. TkoM
who were not onto tho domestic affair
of this man supposed from his talk that
ke ruled his own house with an iroa
hand and those who woro on, smiled
and said netbing, for they liked to
hear the man talk. And on ono occa
sion when tho man was at the corner
grocery and had a largo and attontivo
crowd about him, ho becamo so car
ried away with his subjoct that ho did
not observo that ho had Maid consider
ably beyond his limit until ho was re
minded of it by thoeutruueeof 11 husky
lady who curried no surplus llesh, but
who would weigh in ordinary condi
tion about 105 pounds net. As tho
lady pushed through tho crowd "shu
heard the small man say: "1 tell you
gentlemen, that a man that is a mau
can bo master of his own house."
And then without any flourishes the
husky lady walked up to tho man who
bad not observed her approach, and
taking him by tho ear led him out of
tho crowd, saying, "Don't you know,
you old fool, that it Is after 0 o'clock
and none of your evening choies dono

A boy who had been reared in tbo
town thought it would bo a bully good
thing to get out in tho country whero
ho could havo a chance to rido horses
and play in the wlld wood. Tho boy
had an undo who owned a quarter
section about thirty miles out in the
country and he wrote the boy's mother
that if Augustus would come out ke
would try to have the boys show him a
good time and that he could have a
chance to ride the horses aa much as
he wanted to. Whon Augustus'
mother read the letter he was red
hot to go, as he labored under the
delusion that it would be a great graft
to get out into the country and ride as
much as b wasted to.
When Augustus reached the farm of
his uncle, the farmer was just laying
by a field of corn in the good old way,
with a single shovel plow, and he told
Augustus that if ho wanted to rido and
guide that horso whilo his uaolo Fuller
held the plow ho could tio it. And
Augustus fairly jumped at the chance
because ho didn't kuow a lot of things
then that he know afterwards. After
Augustus had ridden that farm horso
bareback for about five rounds ho con
cluded that a riding horso whose
spinal column jutted up into tbo at-
mosphoro was not so much of a joke as
hejhad previously supposed and he was
ready, so far as he was concerned, to
quit and call it half a day, but his
uncle wasn't of the samo mind and
urged Augustus to go on and intimated
that if he were to give up now all the
farmer boys would refer to him as a
"softy." Augustus was a youth of
proud spirit and didn't propose to bo
sailed a "softy" so ho 'staid with his
j'b and rode that horso with tho pro
jecting spiuo all through tho sunny day.
And when ho got off at night he could
not sit down on a chair, and where tho
sun hit tho back of his nock it was doue
to a turn. The next day Augustus
wrote to his molhor saying that if it
was just the same to hor be would pre
for to recreate for tho rest of tho
summer in town, as this country life
was a tritlo strenuous for him ho had
been taught by a teacher from Boston,
which accounted for his ready use of
the word strenuous.

As an experiment live hundred stu
dents of Harvard university wero re
quested to write a history of their
doings for twenty-four hours. Each
man turned In his article and tho en tiro
bunch was sealed up In an air tight box
and put away not to be opened again
for one hundred and ilfty years. ThoJ
professor who worked out tliu idea un
doubtedly intonded that on tho data of
opening of tho box there would bo
great festivities at Harvard, and that
tho light cast upon tho doings of peo
ple in this ago would bo decidedly In
teresting. Perhaps it will; there is no
way to tell, for no mau living now
would have any desire to bo living one
hundred and fifty years from now,
ovou for tho excessive pleasure of see
ing tho box opened. But the well
meaning professor neglooted to tako
into account ono thing. Tho current
lltoraturo of today, tho hundreds of
books which describe tho customs of
the century to such good advantage
that futuro knowledge of tho generation
will not bo hard to obtain. Had some
fellow ono hundred aud llftv vent's ncro
done such a thing, it might bo inter
esting right now, as information of
college days then Is a little scarce No
Harm will bo done, however; by at
tempting tho experiment. Ex.
On noxt Wednosday the republican
county convention will bo held in this
city. In order to win out great care
ahould bo taken that the best men be
put la nomination for the several
offices. Past experience should learn
the party that in order to see their
men occupy the offices, they place
mon as candidates who have had no
bad records of political intrigue in the
past. If you do their political ghosts
will bo brought forth to haunt the party
and they will go down in defeat Do
not put up men who have got their
livelihood through tho misfortune of
others. Tho men with tho pleasant
hand-shake now, who didn't know tho
common herd three months ago must
bo turned down or tho poople will do
tho act at tho polls. Put up men whom
tho party newspapers can support
without offering oxcusos.
Lizzie Zalman, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Chas. Zalman, living three and
