lor. A fow yenrB ago, however, when ho was "heart wholn anil fancy
free," ho was speaking to a largo assembly nt a political gathering. Tho audi-
onco was full of handsomo women and pretty girls
who were, of course, much Interested in tho tariff
when It 1b explained by a young bachelor who lived
In official Washington.
Slctnp got along famously, carrying with him the
sympathy of tho crowd. Hut at last a fellow In h
back scat roso to mako a statement.
"I llko Stomp," he roared. "Slomp's all right
The only thing I have agin him Is that ho la not
married. Now, I proposo to this honorable gath
ering that we rcftlso to voto for him unions he
promises to t married."
Slemp was oqunl to tho occasion.
"I acknowledge my desolate state," ho exclaim
cd, "yet It Is rot my fault, but that of tho fair onea
who will not Nvo me. If thero Is any one among
tho many lo""ly ladles In this audience who will
accept my hr-art and hand. I nm only too willing to bo led to the altar."
The man Jumped to his feet again excitedly,
v "No. you don't," ho exclaimed. "You'll have to go to foreign parts to git
your bride all tho girls around hero havo got too much aonso to tako you!"
Belting Rapidly Disappearing.
The rapid displacement of tho belt

not only resulting In a great saving

been attended by Injury and loss of
life to a serious degree. The electric
drlvo Is remedying all this, Although
the United Statea was the pioneer In
tho development of motor driven ma
