sand will naturally come a little slow,
there is every indication that the
whole amount will soon be raised.
Columbus citizens realize what the
building means for the city and will
ot let the project fail
The two cent passenger rate will be

railroads, the Burlington and Missouri
Pacific being the first to make the
announcement. In order to make
the emergency clause valid Governor
' 8heldon will in all probability sign
the bill before the five days' limit ex

United States has just dosed. It will
always be known in our American
history as one of our most important,
as well as one of the greatest It has
enacted more trust laws for the good
of our whole country than any other.
To be sure, it has made large appro
priations, and our democractic friends
will howl about its extravagance.
They always do when there is any
thing important done. But what
items do they object to? Not to the
pension bill? And surely not the
post office appropriations? Ours is a
great big country, our expenses are
great, but our resources are far greater.
In spite of having his salary raised
to 17,000 per year, Mr. John Coit
Spooner resigns his office of United
States senator of the state of Wiscon
sin to resume the practice of law. In
his letter of resignation he frankly
admits that he leaves the honorable
service of his state, being a compara
tively poor man, to do something that
will pay him better. The whole
nation, with the possible exception of
Senator Tillman of South Carolina, is
sorry to lose Spooner out of the United
States senate, as he is considered one
of the greatest lawyers and one of the
greatest statesmen of this age, an hon
est, fearless, conscientious American.
There have been many rumors on
our streets the past few days or week
about the site for new post office build
ing. The following is a correct state
ment of the whole matter. Soon after
the appropriation of $7,000 for a site
for a new post office building was
naade, the United States treasury de
partment asked for sealed bids. Nine
were submitted, ranging in price from'
$3,000 to $7,000, covering grounds
from the Maennerchor hall on the
east, Quincy street on the west, Fif
teenth street on the north and Elev
enth street on the south. A few weeks
ago the bids were opened. An expe
rienced supervising architect, Mr.
Richard Fourchy, was sent here, and
he personally looked over each site
offered, and made it a point to per
sonally see each one of the bidders.
Then a type written notice was sent to
Postmaster Kramer, with instructions
to post it in the lobby of the post
ofBce, which was done. This informed
all interested parties that they had
until February 13, 1907,' to make any
objections or suggestions to any of the
proposed sites. On February 18, Sen
ator Millard informed the postmaster
that the site known as the Hughes
site, comer of Fourteenth and North
streets, had been accepted by the treas
ury department. Then there were
further efforts made by those in-
in the Baker site, corner of
(Hive and Fourteenth streets, to have
that site chosen, and the treasury de
partment, in order if possible to suit
everybody, asked Postmaster Kramer
if the owner ot the southeast corner of
Olive and Fourteenth streets would
not-put in a reasonable bid and offer
it for a post office location. When the
henry department was informed
that this comer was occupied by a
church and livery stable, and could
net possibly be had for the amount of
the appropriation, the case was closed,
nasi the Hugh Hughes site accepted.
Jl is only natural that each site had
ill sriende, but in all fairness we think
the one selected will give the most

For selfishness and consideration,
commend me to a woman traveling,
says the Saturday Evening Post She
will deliberately occupy two seats in
a street car; see other women stand,
laden with bundles, without offering to
move up, and otherwise try to prove
to everybody with eyes in their
heads that they, these women, have
no manners at all.
Yet, if you called at the houses of
such women, I have no doubt in the
world that you would be courteously
received; their best would be at your
disposal, and you would' otherwise dis
cover that they had some claim to the
title of ladies but never from their
manners in public.
And, far from displaying good man
ners themselves, many women are in
capable of appreciating good manners

' Vs nahmg story of a most ex-
jrdiaary one that happened to me
..ne 20 years ago.
' "We were hunting moose in the
Canadian woods. A howling blizzard
had kept us in the lodge the greater
part of the day, aad nightfall found at
with our pipes in front of a crackling
"At that time." went on Wilson,
after we had settled ourselves la
comfortable positions, "I was more hi
love with this whimsical old world
than now. and every summer found
me at one of the fashionable resorts
oa the Atlantic coast
T had arrived at the age when mat
rimony was merely a matter of find
ing a responsive heart, but of an the
girls in the circles in which I moved
not one appealed to me, nor was my
friendship with any more than a pass

say uncle's hanking house I had -a
comfortable annuity bestowed upon
me by my father at his death, and as
a result I did not look upon matrimony
front a mercenary viewpoint
"It was la August that I first met
her. I was summering at a rather ex
clusive resort on the coastT She had
come with her mother from a south
ern city, the name of which is no mo
ment in this story.
"Before a week had passed I felt
that I had known her for years; at
the ead of a month she was the only
person in my thoughts. I dreamed of
her by night and was la misery when
not in her company by day. Before
her departure I resolved to tell her
what was nearest my heart
'It was the night previous to their
leaving for the south. We had left
the ballroom and strolled to the pier,
which extended far Into the water.
The ocean was as of glass, aad the
moon cast a path of silver across its
surface as far as the eye could reach.
"What passed between us It is un
necessary to relate, but before we left
the pier I took from my vest pocket a
beautiful diamond solitaire. I bad
carried it for weeks. Without a word
she held out her hand that I might
place It upon her finger. Joy bad com
pletely unnerved me, for .as I reached
forth my hand trembled like aa aspen.
I had Just touched the tip of her
finger when the ring slipped from my
grasp and fell with a tiny splash in
the water. For a moment I stood as
one turned to stone. Was it an ill
omen? Did it mean tnat alter ail, I
was not to know the happiness of
which I had dreamed? Suddenly I
turned to her. She looked Into my
eyes, placed a hand on my arm and
kissed me. And that kiss I knew to
be as strong a seal as any ring ever
"Wouldn't it be funny if a fish
should swallow the ring? she said
playfully, oa our way back to the
"That night the Incident haunted
me In dreams. I could see the ring
dropping through the water, glittering
and flashing as It went when sudden
ly a fish darted up and closed Its Jaws
over It with a snap.
"When I awoke a cold sweat was on
"Well, to make a long story short,
I sent her another ring, and the event
was arranged for eight months later.
Her letters, meanwhile, were filled
with hope and encouragement and
the sweet simplicity of the true wom
an. I lived in them. They were meat
and drink to my soul.
"Fate's decrees are fathomless. Five
months later she was taken with fever
and died. Then the world began to
grow old. Instead of spending my
summers at the resorts I took to the
woods. I found solace In nature.
"Five years later to a month It was
August, you win remember relatives
insisted upon my spending a few
weeks with them at the resort where
we first met I found the place
changed considerable, but the' old pier
was still standing.
"Now comes the strange part of my
story. One day we were fishing from
the pier close to the place where I
had dropped the ring. Ill luck was
with me from the start For aa hour
I sat there, my mind flooded with
memories, and caring little whether
fish were biting or not
"We were on the point of leaving
when there came a terrific Jerk on my
line and I landed a beautiful seven
pound sea bass. As It lay struggling
on the pier, its large mouth distended,
there suddenly flashed through my
mind the dream of five years before.
It was Just such a fish that I had seen
In my dreams, the fish that had
snapped Its Jaws over my diamond
"We took It to the hotel and had
it served for dinner. I Jfead just placed
a tender morsel In my mouth and
closed my teeth on It when I bit on
something hard. It -felt round aad
smooth to the tongue. Unobserved I
removed it from my mouth aad care
fully placed it beside my plate."
Outside the blizzard had ceased.
The names had died down aad weird
shadows danced about the room. There
vras no sound, save the breathing of
the men and the puffing of pipes.
"What do you think It wear asked
Wilson, after a slight pause.
The ring, of course," I replied.
; Tou're wrong," replied Wilson,
slowly, as he knocked the ashes from
his pipe. "It was a piece of the back
