i The Other Mule's Grass.
t We laugh at the mule that
statjds at the fence , neglecting to
cat , and looks longingly into the
adjoining pasture , imagining
that the grass there is sweeter
than his own , says the DCS
It is funny , and yet it is the
same trait that we who call our
selves wiser than the mule ex
hibit all through our lives.
We begin early. How quickly
a baby will drop whatever he is
playing with to seine that which
l is withheld from him !
A tendency to undervalue what
we have and to magnify what
others have seems to be an ele
ment of our nature.
Many a young writer feels that
he would be' quite happy if he
could write such history as Piske
yet fmTstory is told of Fiske that
his great desire was to sing.
Compliments on his writings or
lectures brought no sweetness to
him , but a favorable word on his
singing filled him with joy.
The mule at the fence has
plenty of company.
The poor think the rich must

Hand it Around.
Don't be ashamed or afraid to
say kind things. There arc some t ,
people who look as though thev
had been caught sheep stealing
after they give way loan impulse
to be pleasant. Kindness is not
a weakness. There is no danger
of overproduction along this line.
There is a market for all the i
bright looks and good wholesome \
pleasantries that can be turned
out. People go to bed hungry
every night for a gentle touch era
a helpful word. Men and women
are laid at rest in the cemeteries
cver3' day , who would a thousand
times rather have had a few
thoughtful tokens of good will
when living than all the ( lowers
that have been heaped upon their
caskets. Hand out kindness and
see the joy it will bring you as
well as those at the other end of
the transaction "Pleasant words
arc as an honeycomb , sweet to
the soul and health to the bones. "
Get away from the idea the pica-
ami words should only now and
then be thrown out like a bone tea
a dog. Carry a full basket and
be generous. It will beat the
widow's cruse and Hour barrel at
Brown County World.
House of Pcpresentativcs , U. S. ,
Washington , D. C. , Nov. 8 , ' 06.
Hon. Henry D. Cnsson ,
House of Representatives ,
Washington , D. C.
My dear Mr. Cnsson : On a
careful examination of the cases
to which you referred me bearing
on the election of congressmen to
fill vacancies , I find none that
covers my case in every particu
lar. The one point upon which
there is a difference of opinion in
my case is whether Hon. K. J.
Burkett was my legal predecessor
in the 59th congress. So far as
I have been able to ascertain a
question exactly similar to my
own has neven been passed upon
by the judiciary committee of the
house or by the courts of the
United States. 1 am fully aware
that your construction of section
51 of the revised statutes of the
United States makes it applicable
to 1113' case and that your con
struction agrees with that of all
your predecessors since the enact
ment of the statute in 1802-
When I accepted the money you
sent me as payment of salary
covering the period from March
4th to July 18th , the date of my
election , I did so because 1 knew
that at that time no one was
really a member of the 5'Jth con
gress and that 1 would be on
hand to take my oath of office at
the same time that all other
members elected to the 59th con
gress would be sworn in. I knew
that unless my health failed me I
would be present at all the ses
sions of congress ; thereby render
ing the same service to the gov
ernment as other members.
Knowing this I knew no reason
why I should not receive the
same compensation , especially so
since there was authority of law
for my receiving such pay. How
ever , I do not propose to retain
any money paid me for service
where there is the least question
of doubt about my right to it ;
consequently I herewith return
to you $1,801.84 , the amount of
salary paid me for the period
running from Marcli 4th to July
18th , 1905.
I would have returned this
t earlier except that my right to it
was not questioned until after 1
r became a candidate for re'iomi-
nation and re-election to con
gress. I did not take this action
at that time because mv motive ;
would have been misconstrued ,
thus subjecting myself to tin
criticism of attempting to influ
ence voters or of purchasing th <
good-will of my constituents-
Very truly yours ,

Trains Hun by Electricity.
"That electricity will bo used gen
erally on our main railway terminals ,
and ultimately on our main through
lines for passenger and freight serv
ices , 1 am convinced. " says Dion J.
Arnold , past president of the American
Institute of Electrical Engineers , in
Technical World Magazine. "I do not.
however , expect that the change from
steam to electricity will be made for
economic reasons or tlmt 11 will bo
made voluntarily by the railroad. "
A remarkable invention for pi event
ing railway accidents has been tried
with success on the western railways
of Prance. The invention Is placed
on an engine. If the driver for any
cause passes an adverse danger-sig
nal tlio apparatus blows a whistle on
the engine continuously and also
throws up n small light under the
engine driver's nose. This will ren
der all accidents , except willful ones ,
