One of tho important events of the
year to "Newspaper Row" in Washing
ton is the annual appearance of the
President's Message. This is never fur
nished to tho press to appear in print
until after its presentation to Congress.
Many times in years past the cor
respondents have exercised tho utmost
ingenuity in their efforts to get it, by
hook or crook, so as to print it a day or
two in advance. Two or threo times
theyjiavo succeeded, much to the an
noyance and chagrin of tho different
Presidents who have fallen victims to
journalistic voracity. Of lato years it
. -has been so scrupulously and systemat
ically guarded that it very rarely gets
-out ahead of time. An advance copy
- Wijl at any time command a large price,
and this has more than once induced
treachery in tho Government Printing
. Ollice. In no other way is it possible
for it to reach the public prematurely.
Before Grant's time the sharp newg
. paper pen had succeeded now and then
In-getting a message before tho day of
its delivery. They tried their skill on
Grant, who was not "up" on such mat
' ters, and successfully, too. They out
generaled the General. His first mes
sage became the prey of the Row, and
people knew all about it before Con
gress meL But they did not fool him
s second time. He said nothing about
, .it, but the next 3-ear ho guarded his
. message so carefully that none of the
correspondents were able to get the
- slightest trace of it. The night before
the day of its delivery the President sent
a messenger along the Row and invited
a number of the leading correspondents
to call at the White House the follow-
- ing morning. Of course they were all
there at the appointed time. President
Grant entered the room with a big roll
of manuscript in his haud and a twinkle
,in his eye. It was perfectly safe to
"givo out" tho message then, as there
was not time to make any possible use
Of it till after its delivery.
"Well, boys," said the President,
you outilanked mo last year, but I
don't believe 3011 will do it again.
Hero's the message. You can all sit
down and cop3 it if 3011 want to."
Nobody wanted it then, as it was al
ready in the hands of the Associated
Press, and would be promptly furnished
to their respective papers. But they all
laughed and declared it an excellent
joke. All of Grant's subsequent mes
sages were guarded with equal care,
and to the end of his Administration he
was as good as his word; not one of
them had tho edge taken off 1)3' prema
ture publication. But they played it on

trio. These were the representatives pf

and Cincinnati Enquirer, ft was in
1877. The boys h:id been nosing around
with more than usual zeal, trying to get
- on the scent of the message. For sev
eral days even-body along the Row was
on the qui vivo. There seemed to be
an indefinable idea thatsomebod3' would
get it ahead of time, and each of tho
correspondents hoped to stick a feather
in his professional cap by proving him
self the smartest of the lot. The mes-

the merest accident. It appeared
that the New York Tribune man was
the only who really struck a lead that
promised to pan out rich. He had care
fully nursed the ch-me, and was on the
very point of svuring a magnificent
"scoop" as such a f-at is termed in
journalistic phnw -when the other fel
- lows stumbled upon the scent and
bagged the game. Early Saturdav
evening the New York Times corres
pondent was sitting at his desk in a de
jected mooml. menially bewailing tho
failure of all his efforts'to stoal the'mes
sage. A -.ranger entered, and in a
voice that betrayed excitement inquired
if .that was the New York Tribune Of
ficc "That's all right," said tho Tiroes
niau.- -"Have you got it?"

the man entered that possibbyhe was on
some errand connected with "tho subject
that had for several days been upper
xnot in his thoughts.
"Yes, I have it right here," said tho
stranger, as he slapped his hand on tho
breast pocket with the air of a man who
had achieved a great exploit.
"How much do vou want for it?"
"What will you give?"
Til give you a thousand dollars."
"I think I can get more than that."
"What's your figure?" said the Times.
"Give 3-ou twelve hundred and fifty."
"Fifteen hundred, and not a dollar
'Up to this time not a word had been
said as to what the document was for
which such a spanking price was de
manded. It afterward transpired that
thie stranger, whp. had laid his plans to
'steal a copy of the message, had a single
interview on the street tho night before
with.the Tribune correspondent, and he
had ao-reed to give the latter the hrst
chance to buy his plunder. He was not
familiar -with the Row, and when he
came to deliver the gootls he went into
, tfcg wrong office. The Times man was
shrewd enough, to take in the situation

'- isiiTersation be feigned a f uHJoBOwlsdge
that the three papers would "back" him

"call around Monday morning and
you'll get your money, on conditio
that no other newspapers have it"
"All right," said the stranger, and
thereupon he laid upon the correspondent-stable
a printed copy of thoPresi
dent's message, and departed. Th
Times man quickly thrust it into his
pocket and hastened to find his "part
ners" of the Chicago Times and Cin
cinnati Enquirer. There was great re
joicing as they perfected their plans for
getting the message off to their respect
ive papers without is leaking out The
least slip in the arrangements might
prove fatal. In order that they might
not excite'suspicion along the Row they
hired for the night a room at the Ebbitt
House, which they used as their "headquarters.1-
They decided to admit the
Boston Olobe into the combination,
which would make the cost of the mes
sage $375 to each of the Jour papers,
the additional expense to each for tele
graphing it as a special being about
100. The Olobe man wired his papei
on tho subject and received a reply that
he might give $250 and no more. The
other fellows refused to let the Olobe in
unless it would pay its full share; so
the Boston people did not have tho mes
sage to mix with their bean-porridge.
In the meantime the New York, Chi
cago, and Cincinnati papers had tele
graphed their representatives fully ap

them to secure it at any price. The

threo lucky journalists sauntered down
along tho Kow. Tltcy called upon theii
friends, the wretched correspondents of
old fogy journals, who had not enter
prise enough to do so easy a thing as
getting a-Presidcnt's Message two days
ahead of time. They inquired for "news"
as if thej had not already- furnished
their papers with just as- much as thev
eould handle, and asked despairingly il
an3body had heard anything about the
message. All this time" the ten or twelve
thousand words were chasing each othci
over half a, dozen wires to each of the
Next morning tho Row showed early
signs of animation. The representative
of the two Timcscs and tho Enquirer
knew tho boys would be around betimes
to continue with redoubled vigor theii
hunt for tho message, as this would be
the last day of grace. Conscious of tho
entire success of their scheme tho three
met by appointment and went down the
Row to see the bo3s and hear the re
turns como in.
Half a dozen able journalists were
standing in front of General Bo3nton's
office. As the trio camo up thev ac
costed the former with:
"Have you got on to the message
"No, have you?" was the reply.
"Well;" said the New" York man, "I
sent it to the Times last night"
There was a stare of wild amazement
on the faces of the disgusted group.
Their eyes opened still wider wheu the
two others chimed in:"
"The Cincinnati people are all read
ing it in the Enquirer this morning."
"Me, too," said tho Chicago Times
Andthoso who "got left" walked
sadly away. At that time there was
nothing'on earth' that had any interest
As the threo heroes of the hour
walked up the street they met the cor
respondent of the Chicago Tribune. It
was now their time to be surprised, and
particularly he of the Chicago Times.
His utter demoralization may be im
agined when the Tribune, with a broad
smile on his face, said to them:
"Well, boys, that was a good job.
You deserve a credit mark. But tho
Tribune has got the message all the
And this proved to be true. In some
way the Tribune people had the idea
that it would appear that morning in
New York. The difference in time of
an hour afforded the possibility of hav
ing it telegraphed from that city im
mediately upon its publication, and yet
the amount of matter to be handled
was so largo as to render the feat a
difficult one. In carrying out such
a scheme it was necessary that
the. issue in Chicago be made as
nearly as possible even with the Times.
In anticipation of such an attempt, and
to prevent it if possible the New York
Times delayed its issue fifteen or twenty
minutes, until it could be no longer kept
back and meet the early outgoing
The Chicago Tribune peoplo had the
impression that it was the World that
had the message, and kept that office
closely picketed all the latter part of
the night Thay also Tiad their skir
mishers at each of the other offices. The
first copy of the Times that appeared
on the street was snatched up b3 a rep-i
resentative of a Chicago paper, who
went with it at his utmost speed to the
telegraph office. The manager of tho,
latter had been notified of the job and
had ready all the operators that could'
be employed. Corresponding arrange
ments were made at tho other end'
of the line, and the message in sections
went buzzing over twenty wires. There
being littlo ordinary busiuess at that
time of da3 they- had full possession of
the line. At the Tribune office in Chi
cago there was the utmost activity.
Every printer was at his "caso," and
editors and proof-readers 13 tho dozon
gave their bast energies to the work..
The marvelous feat was accom
plished in an incredibly short spaco
of time. In a little more than
an hour from the issue of the
Times in New York the entire massage
appeared in the Tribune on tho streets
of Chicago but a few minutes behind
the issue of the Times of the latter city.
When all tho facts became known along
tho Row here it was voted that on tho
whole the Chicago Tribune should take
the cake. The Now York Tribune,
which shook tho tree for the others to
gather the fruit was left entirely out in
The Enquirer and New York Times
promptly paid their ?500 each to tho
man who sold them tho message. Mr.
Store3. of Ihc Chicago Times, was so
incensed at Hie success of the Tribune's
exploit that lie refused to pay his share.
He alwayc insisted that the party had
broken faith with him, and by this
means allowed his rival to share the
benefits of the enleqrisc. Storey was
sued for the mone3. but so far as I can
learn it was never paid.
"How did the stranger get the mes
sage?" I asked of my informant who
was one of the thite.
"I haven't tho slightest idea," he re
plied. "I didn't ask him.- I didn't
want to know anything about it The

asked no questions." Washington Cor.

THE ST. BERNARD DOG.
Noble Brutes Which Have Exceptional
Claims Upon the Regard f Human Be
ing. To speak of a St Bernard dog as an
"exhibit" seems somewhat derogatory
to such a noble creature. Even as com
pared with other dogs, they have ex
ceptional claims upon the regard of
human beings a superiority which only
the, Newfoundland and the true shep
herd dog can in any way be said to
share with them. The instinct of tho
Newfoundland to save life and the
amazing intelligence which it shows
whenever it attempts to rescue the
drowning have'uggestcd to the Conti
nental River Police the formation of a
brigade of these brave animals to co
operate with the regular "Humano So
eicty,"" and the experiments, as reported
03 our emotional neighbors the French,
gave some surprising results. It was
apparently proved that the dogs dis
covered at once for themselves the ac
tual degree of danger of the immersed
person, and acted accordingly. 11 a
man pretended to fall out of a boat
they pricked up their ears and
wagged thoir tails. But nothing
more. If ho called out for help
they looked much puzzled, but still re
frained from offering assistance. They
saw that he was within arm's length of
the boat; that the other man in it did
nothing to help his unfortunate com
rade, so they put their sagacious black
heads together and said one to the
other: "That drowner there is either a
fool of the largest size or else he is an
imposter. In either case we had better
let him alone." And they did. But no
experiment when the accident happened
to a man in woman's clothes failed to
send the dogs splashing in at once, and
if the object was a chud the competi
tion to save it was immediately furious.
Ordinary property failed to attract their
interest, but a hat floating down tho
stream made them at once uneasy, and
the older dogs would go in and paddle
up current and "quarter" the water, as
if the association of a man's hat with
his head were too strong for the New
foundland mind to disconnect the two,
and as if tho animal thought that if the
one wa there the other would probably
be not far off.
With the sheep-dog, agaiu, there is an
analogous discrimination of circum
stances. If a sudden storm comes
on it lirst sets about herding those
hheep which run the greatest risk and
scouring the places where peril is most
likely to be fatal. For tho sake of a
single Btraggler which it knows to bave
gone off it leaves the flock, and as soon
as it has got the whole number com
plete the tone of its voice, its gestures
change so significantly that the shop

It says to the shepherd: "I know you are
not good for much as a shepherd with

The Duties and Pleasures of "Life A3
Exist In the Czar's Dominion.
The subject condition of Russian
women is one of the principal causes of
the rapid growth among the people of
certain radical Christian sects, some of
which resemble in many particulars tho
American revivalists and Anabaptists.
The despotism of the family drives the
peasant woman to these sects, which
teach that there can bo no domestic ties
de jure where none exist de facto, and
that it is degrading to observe the letter
whou the spirit is dead. She flies from
her home and lives under an assumed
name, lest she be dragged back to her
former servitude. She feels raised to a
condition of equality and independence
b3 her faith in a religious doctrine, and
ardently embraces the new belief. Tho
maiden, or woman married against her
will by the Slate church, having once
thrown in her lot with tliee enthusiasts,
may marry among them. Until within
the last two years Russian law did not
recognize these marriages, and tie juro
the wife was alw:i3's able to leave her
sectarian husband without his being
able to restrain her. In some of these
sects the husband and wife stand on an
equal footing, and the marriage lasts as
long as both parties aro satisfied. On
entering the conjugal state the3 declare
their intention before the elders of the
church, and on sundering the union
they do the same. Until very recently
these sects were persecuted, and many
a peasant woman, by her devotion and
heroism, has shown herself worthy
of the martyr's hal. Women
often preach, and the greater number
of these religious bodies are distinguish
ed for a high moral level, purity and
tenderness of domestic life, which is all
the more remarkable when it is remem
bered that ai entire dissolution af all
famil3' ties is permitted by some of thoir
KHMdiar doctrines. Besides thu sects
just mentioned, there are others of an
ascetic nature, in which the women take
vows of chastity anil con-:eerato their
lis to nursing the sick and studying
tli". Bible. A new sect has very recent
ly sprung up, whose distinguishing
feature is the exaltation of woman. She
is placed above man because she can
give birth to another immortal being.
Her pain and travail are so great that
exempting her from all other physical
suffering and annoyance would be but
a poor reward; she is entitled to the
deepest gratitude and reverence of man
kind. Certain writers who have studied
Ihese religious phenomena speak with
great admiration of some 3-oung girls
gifted with remarkable oratoncal talents
and wonderful depths of mystical
thought The sects to which they be
long seek sanctity in the acts of every
day life. A member of one of them a
psalm-reading old maid said to a
proud Bishop riding in a carriage:
-Christ went barefooted." The spirit
of the Russian sectaries in favor of the
mancipation of women shows what a
rital hold the woman question has on
jven the lowest orders of our national
dfe. What the upper and educated
:lasses of women seek in the sciences,
ligher education and 'the liberal pro
essions, the poor, ignorant peasant
vomen find in niystioal religiea.-'-T.

Reader, if you ever left home and
went to a great eiy to seek fortune and
fame, or lodging at police headquarters,
then come home on a visit after a 3oar
or two, did you notice how low the
houses once so tall in your eyes ap

I remember the first time the fire de

tinguishing had become a profession as
it is to-day. and tho Tiffin department
was a volunteer affair, which hauled the
old "Seneca Chief" steamer by haud,
and ran a heok-njnd-ladder truck and

in some great enterprise like burning a
house or barn, and he is not slow in
righting the great wrong to tho best of
his ability. I thought the fellow that
held the helm of the hook-and-ladder

horn of the dilemma. I never exactly

The car was going down French's
hill, and there were a few jovial passen
gers aboard. At Prospect street a lady
got out A3oung man, who, with a
few of his friends, were haying a bit of
quiet fun and had evidently been end
ing themselves, said: "I'll bet cigars
for the crowd that I'll slop the car with
out ringing the boll, speaking to the
driver or conductor or asking auyono
to stop it."
"O, you'll go outside and slap hold of
the brake. You're too smart, you arc,"
remarked one of his companions, smi

"No, siree, I'll do no such thing. I'll
neither touch the brake, nor ask an3
oie to touch it for me, and I won't ask
anybod3' to stop Hie car."
The bet was taken.
Up jumped the car-stopper, and
seizing one of the straps tugged at it as
hard as he could.
The conductor saw him and con
cluded that the man was a greenhorn
who wanted to gel out and w'as yanking
at the wrong tag. He stopped the car
and threw open the door.
The man had sat down again.
"Don't you want to get out here?"
said the conductor.
"O, dear, no."
"Then why did ou pull the strap?"
"I was 011I3- trying to sec if it was linn
enough to hold me if I happened to
come along iu the car some night when
I couldn't get a seat"

very complimentary to such darned

The domain of the dentist is about to
be disputed. A great discovery has
been made which will revolutionize the
whole business and emancipate tho suf
ferers. A factory has been established,
with plenty of capital to back it, for tho
purpo.se of making artificial teeth by
machinery. All that auy one who i$
troubled '.vith his teeth will have to do
will be lo got them all pulled out Then
he can purchase a brand new, machine
made set aud be exempt from toothache
all the rest of his life. There is, of
course, nothing new in the making and
using of artilicial teeth, but it will be
easily seen that the manufacture by ma
chinery presents great advantages.
When tho making of watches b3 ma
chinery was starVd there were man3'
protests that the new way would never
be :i good as the old. But tho exact
ness soon attained, and the convenience
of having' the parts interchangeable,
brought about a revolution, and tho
factory watches now rank above the
hand-made. The same advantages will
be had in the factory teeth. If one set
gets broken, or comes out an exactly
similar one can be ordered from the
faeton at very small cost If the plate
gets ciacked it can be replaced in the
same way All that will be necessary
will be to give the number of the plate,
and a new one, precisely like the old,
will be sent by return mail. N. Y. Mail

Gorceix estimates tho mass of deposits

that the deposits aro practically inex

rich iu metallic ores, no coal exists in
the neighborhood of these deposits.
Lignite, 'of good quality, is found in
several places, and in beds of workable

abundance of wood, aud wood charcoal

AN OHJO SQUASH YARN.
A Tall Story Which Scattered a Crowd,
and Mudo tho Grocer Take Down IIU
Yesterday a lot of men were seated in
the "corner grocery," when their atten
tion was attracted to a pumpkin which
was just then brought in. Being of au
uncommonly large sic, it set the more
talkative ones to telling "squash yarns."
After somebody had told a vcr3 extrava
gant one about a squash that weighed,
as he solemnly asserted, seven hundred
and ninety-nine pounds, an old fisher
man arose and addressed the assembl,.
"My veiygood fren's, I canjestbe.it
sich squash 3'arns as that, 'wa3 yander.
W'y," he went on. "when I was phin'
my trade in the West Injies, I kept a
kind of squash seed which I alwa3s
planted a little before my reg'lar iishin'
-scursions. Well, then in 'bout a week,
in that hot keiitry, Mr. Squash lied got a
good start and I took him by the helm
aud steered 'em toward the water where
1 wanted to do my iishin'.
"Only one.suua-h growed on this 'un,
to wich I tieu a big lump of cork to keep
ini afloat Ye see, the blame thing
growed so fas that it just drairsred tho
squash over the water like double-geared
lightnin'. Thinks I, 'I'd better be a go
iir if I ketch vou:' so I iuniued into mv
boat, first tyin' about fifty fish linos to
the vino as it rushed past me. I hed to
row for all I was worth to ketch up with
him, he had got under such heudw.iA'.
HowsomeVer, I got round on the lee
side of it, as it glided onward toward
the scttin' sun, and veered it square
around with au oar, and headed the
thing for port agin.
"I hed niightj hard work to keep the
side of my boat from getting stove in
by the squash a cavin' around so; but
when I got it started she went fer tho
land at the rate of forty knots an hour.
"This I did, so as . to land ray fish,
which 1 could plainly see, jerkin U13
vegetable trollin' line about sixt3 wa3s
a minute. It took that viflfc just three
seconds to grow back again to the
shore.aud the distance was three miles.
This squash, contrary to all my expec
tations, didn't stop when it touched the
ground, but took the overland trail,
drajrsin' vine, cork, fish and all. It
was a beautiful sight to see the speckled
shiners go sailin' across lots, mixed in
with the em'rald green of the squash
leaves, floppin' again one another an'
ghtterin in the sunshine.
"I didn't hev much time to admire
it, fer I sec that I Was li'ble to lose the
benefit of my catch, so I got ashore
quick aud cut the vine to stop the thing;
but I found out afterwards that the
squash had knocked down seven huts,
killed a dog, and crippled three natives
for life who tried to stop it
"When I got to my fish I found to
m astonishment that ev'ry blamed one
of em' by rubbiu' over the sand so fast
hed been cooked to a nico brown,
But when this disciplo of truth
gazed around to see the effect of his
words, not a man, with the exception
of the grocer, who had taken down his
shot-gun, was left His audience had
silently departed by the back door.
Cheerful Chinese Execution.
A common modo is to tear off the
nails of the toes ami lingers, thrw-t
bamboo spikes into the eyes, and riddle
the whole bodies with iron wires heated
in the tire. Another peculiarly diabol
ical invention is a cae, just high and
wide euough to enable the victim to
stand in it. Its whole interior top,
sides and bottom, excepting just space
enough to rest the feet on is garnished
with spikes made of bamboo, and when
the pnsoner is placed iu it the cage is
suspended. Unless ho keeps his body
perfectly rigid the cage oscillates, and
with the least oscillation tho spikes
enter his naked body. He can not
crouch down nor fiiange his position in
the least, nor make use of his hands.
No food is givau him. The moment ha
commences to feel sleepy to relax his
muscles innumerable bamboo pointi
enter into his flesh, and the pain is so
ucute that sleep is impossible. Finally
he dies, rather from want of sleep than
from pain one of the most hideoae
deaths imaginable. Figaro.
