HELLO ! UELLUI
Mr. Sooopocdyko'a Call by Tolophouo
Upon n BuBluoea Friend.
llriko's Trailers' llopatlno.
"Now. my dour , " said Air. Spoopou-
dyke , etandlug before the tolopViono
nnd propatltiR to ozplatn Its mysteries
and ndvantagoa to his wlfo. "Now ,
iny , donr , thla la goiuc ; to provo the
uioat convenient thing wo over had la
hou9o. When I want to talk to anyone
ono I jnst turn thta crank and Bay
'Hollo , Hello , ' aud the girl at the
Central says 'Hollo , Hollo/ and I toll
her who I want nnd she calls him up.
Now I'll ' ask for Mr. Spccklowottlo , "
and Mr. Spoupondyko turned the
crank , utterly forgetting to proaa the
batten that makca the connection.
"What does ho nay ? " asked Mrs.
Spoopondyko , cocking her head to ono
side , aa a woman alwaya doea when
her husband la trying to listen.
"Ho don't "
Bay anything yet ,
growled Mr. Spoopondyko. "tlo
ain't llko yon. Ho walta until ho has
got something important on his mind ,
and then ho eaya It. Hello , hello 1"
roared Mr. Spoopondyko , giving the
crank a vicious twist and glaring Into
the nunclator with a vindictive look.
Now you keep that mouth of youro
tied up or yon'ro liable to loao It some
da ) ! " with which doleful prognostica
tion Mr. Spoopondyko rattled away
at the crank and awaited some aigua
of llf& at the other end.
"I anppoao It la really that girl's
fault , " murmured Mrs Spoopondyko ,
anliling at the instrument aa though
she imelled the young lady from afar
and found her no bettor than aho
ought to bo. "I don't suppose sho'a
there at all Moro likely aho'a gad
ding around eomowhoro.
"What'dyo want to talk just then
for ? " howled Mr Spoopondyko ,
"What's your meanly object In break
ing out with the conversational small
pox at that particular juncture. Don't
you know aho waa just beginning to
talk , and yon mode mo loao her ? 1
( ell yon ono thing , " added Mr. Spoop
ondyko with impressive solemnity ,
1 > lf yon don't abut your month once
n a while the motha will got In there
, nd make yon trouble , "
"If aho'd only jnat commenced to
alk you haven't lost her , " replied Mr.
"poopendykc , wrinkling her nose ,
'You'll ' have no trouble with her If
ihe'a not started. "
"Hollo ! Hello ! call up Mr. Speckle-
ottlel" bawled Mr. Spoopondyko ,
pparontly convinced by hla wlfo'a
manner or his own exporlonco.
' 'Thoro , aho'a gene , Nonao for me to
ry anything when you've around.
Another tlmo I want to talk through
i telephone I'll ' take It over In a vacant
ot. Do you know of anything that
will keep yon quiet for a moment ? "
"omandod Mr. Spoopondyko , hie
rrath rising as ho contemplated hie
111 usage. "Kovcr mind the oxponao.
uat name the article. Why didn't
ou tell mo , when yon referred mo tc
our moaaly old dad , that I was pro.
loatag marriage to a dod gaatcd ntoarc
.ictionory ? "
"Say , dear , can I talk through it ? "
oood Mra. Spoopondyke , anxious tc
'isarm her huaband ,
"Is tbero anything you can't talk
.hrougb. . ? " cquotled Mr. Spoopondyko ,
> ogiuning to roaliza that tbero wet
lomothiug about the telephone that he
lid not thoroughly understand ,
'When I got a telephone for you the
diaphragm will bo of double and
wiated wrought stool , with railroad
lacks for wirea , and I don't believe
< hat will last moro'n an hour , and i
half I 'Hollo , hello-o-o ! ' wako up anc
all up Specklowottlo , dog blaat ye ! '
, nd Mr. Spoopendyko rattled away al
ho crank until hla arm ached.
"Bo patient , dear. Yon BOO he'i
; ono , and It's a long way to Mr.
jpocklowottlo's house. Perhaps he
isn't home , nnd she's waiting for him. '
"That's the way it worke , oh ? "
jhriekod Mr. Spoopoadyko , glaring al
his wife. "It took you to got hold ol
It. When I call that girl aha goee
homo to dinner , and along In the
evening aho goes around to Speckle-
wottlo's houao and brings him here in
a hack. That's your Idea of It ? Or
j'rapa yon'vo got aomo sort of a notion
; hat ahoruns the wire through Speckle-
wottlo , turns on tbo onrront , and
ilams him right up hero through the
lido of the honeo ? That your idea ?
IVoIl , she don't , and aho don't break
lior back trying to make a dod gaatod
Idiot of herself , like aotno women ! "
"I thlnk-I understand how It works , "
'alternd Mrs. Spoopondyke. "You
ay , 'Yellow , yellow ! ' "
"There's the combination ! " yelled
Mr. Spoopondyko. "Yon got yoni
work in that time ! Why didn't you
' ; ell mo I waa bringing this thing home
; o the Inventor ? What'd you want
o lot mo stand up hero and explain
, hia thing to the only comprehensive
brain thot over tackled It for ? You've
got It ? With what you know now ,
and what you've got to find out , you
inly need a wig and a law ault to bc
; ho whole science of electricity. ]
.ell yo this la the way It works ! " anc
Mr. Spoopondyko brought the box t
kick that apliutered it. "Soo II
work ? " ho demanded , pulling at thi
wires until they cut hla handa
'Watch It , , wbilo I convoy your re
tjards to the ether lunatlca ! " and he
danced on the romnanta of the Inatrn
inont and smashed the fragment !
igalnat the wall ,
"Never mind dear "
, , remonatratec
Mrs. Spoopondyko , puttering aronm
after him and trying to soothe him
"Whon wo want Mr. Bpooklewottl
again , we'll jnat Bend a sotvan
around after him. That'll bo mud
nicer than trusting to a nanty wire
and I know there was a drangh
through that box , for I could fool 1
as aoon as I came In the room , "
"Oh , yon could feel it ! " roared Mi
Spoopondyko , rather wondering hoi
ho was going to acconnt to the com
pany for the destruction of his boi
"If I had your sensitiveness and a
onion I'd hire out aa a dod gaato
orchldl" and with thla cnlminatln
sarcasm Mr. Spoopendyko crushed hi
hat over his oars and rushed around t
Mr. Spccklowottlo's to aoo what ha
bettor bo done about the matter ,
"I don't care , " murmured Mn
Spoopondyko , aa aho flopped down o
the floor to pick up the piccoa of th
wrecked tolowhono box , "ho 11 nc
have any opportunity for atandlng n
hero and talking to that girl until h
lega are tired , " and with tbla sago 01
preaalon of her satisfaction over tl :
result of the experiment , Mra. Spooj
endyko broke oif the ends of the bei
wires and hid them away to crimp hi

Jerome Eddy Bouftht by H. O. Jewott
Jercmo Eddy , received 2.10J , waa
aold at charges loat Thursday for $25 ,
000 ccah , the largoat price over paid
for a trotting stallion , with the excep
tion of that paid for Smuggler and
Piedmont. The purchaser la Henry
0. Jowott , who with hla father owns a
largo stock farti at Aurora , N , Y.
Jerome Eddy is a bright bay horao fif
teen and one-half hand high , and waa
foaled in 1876 , waa bred by Dewey and
Stewart at Owosao , Mich , nnd owned
them up to the thiio of hla silo. In by
the way of brooding Jerome Kddy la
strictly ft Ilnmblotonlan , his alrc , Louis
Napoleon , being a grandson of Kyadyk's
Hamblotonian , while hia dam Fanny
Mapes is a daughter of Alexander Ab-
da'lah ' , also n aon of Hamblotoulan.
Mr. Dewey , who la a plain , farmer-
llko gentleman , waa eon by a reporter
to day. Ho confirmed the rumor that
the homo had boon sold. ' 'I am sorry
Mr. Jowott is not golntr to trot him , "
aaid Mr. Dewey , "for I regard It as a
certainty that , barring accidents , ho
would at the end of thla season have
the boat ntnllion record , Instead of the
second best , as Is now thocnso. "
V hon a horao la sold for ao largo a
num of money as $25,000 hla Immed
iate rolatlvoa become valuable , and it
Is interesting to know that Mr. Dewey
aud his partner have raised six full
brothers and eistora to Jerome Eddy.
Those are : Lena Mapoa , foaled 1870 ;
Larry W. , foaled 1878 , and now own
ed In Texas ; Frank Noble , foaled 1879 ,
owned in Augusta , III. ; George Milo ,
foaled 1880 , owned by Dewey & Stew
art ; Edmoro , foaled 1881 , owned at
Pontlao , Mich. , and Dolly Mapos , foaled -
od 1882 , owned by Dewey & Stewart.
With the exception of Lena Mapoa and
Dolly Mapoa , thoao are all stallions.

opo How it Appears to Mr.
Puloston , M. P.
At the annual dinner cf the Pert of
lymouth chamber of commerce , glv-
m In Dovouport , England , a low
weeks inco , Mr. J. H. Puleaton , mem
er of parliament , addressed the com-
> any on American competition , a sub
eot of yearly Increasing Importance
n the other aldo of the water. Among
ther things , Mr. Puleaton said : "It
onslJorlng commerce , the countrj
which presents Itself to n speaker ol
any nationality la the United States
The commerce of America affects Eur
po In general , and each nation It
particular. Perhaps there la no in
itanco on record wherein the trade o
a multitude of communities was si
universally , and , nt the Bnmo tlmo , BI
particularly affected. Its Influence 01
English agriculture la now an old
'amiliar subject. But turn to th
'fleet In Russia. Ours is a broad-lm
porting , consuming country , wheroa
Russia is a bread-exporting country
Although the ohief British induatr
was hard hit , the nation bonefitted li
rocuricg cheaper broad a oommo
dlty largely imported. This compen
sated by acting on nil the varied In
dustrloo , employing many operatives
who were morocheaply fed ; and choa ;
> od , too , acts directly on wages , whicl
iota directly on manufactures , stimu
atlnp exportation ; as It enables horn
produce to compote successfully wltl
foreign produce In the markets abroad
yet no great industry can be injurlone
y affected as baa agriculture , wlthoa
general disturbance , acting and re
ting , till all are brought within th
range , [ Hoar. ] But In the case o
Russia , there fa llttlo If any compen
jatlon ; for there were two competitor
to feed Western Europe Russia anc
America. Russia had the grain trade
but had been sur planted by the Unltec
States. There was an article of Inter
at in a St. Petersburg periodical the
ither day on American competition
among European producers from thoii
own markets , which the writer regarded
gardod as "tho general European ques
tion of the greatest importance. " To
lolvo It , a shower of articles , pamph-
eta , books , la falling in English , Ger
man , French and Russian. Many
oading German writora , aa Mendel ,
Professor Heitz , Professor Pitllman ,
Blum , Semler , Max Worth nnd others
llacuesthe effect of American ngricul-
nro on Germany. Central Europe ,
iko England , is not ofl'jctcd in the
way Russia Is affected ; though still
iffected differently from this country ;
'or ' in Germany , agriculture boars to
ithor industries a much larger proper-
ion than agriculture bears to ether
nduatriea In Great Britain.
Slnco 1850 the population of the
United States haa doubled , but Itt
grain production haa Increased five
Imos ! Not only Is the grain market
> f England In American bands , bul
.ho breadstuffr go to Franco and Ger
innrjy. Even at Fiamo , the Austrian
gram importing port , American pair
has appeared , ana Russia alcohol dis
tillers are Importing American ma'za ' ,
Thus Americana are fltop by stO [
driving tholr competitors froir
the European grain market , and wi
notlco with wonder that BO perfect Ic
tholr ayatem of transportation thai
tholr grain freight from Chicago t <
Hamburg la lower than from Pcoth ti
Hamburg. In 1830 Russia oxportoc
to Germany 24 per cent of wheat , anc
the Americana 34 per cent. Of bar
ley 10 per cent' , and the Americans 2 !
per cont. Of corn 2 per cent , and thi
Americans 22 per cant. In consider
ing whore the remedy lies some pro
diet , in the rapidly increasing popula
tlon of the United States , the con
sumption of tholr own produce ; bn
the reviewer I refer to holds that En
rope can bo bankrupted ton tiinca before
fore the United States will bo denaol ;
populated , and ho asks , "la Russia t
glvo up the business ? " But that be
ing Impossible , ao far as Rnosiala concerned
cernod , the writer said they mne
adopt the American way of farming
of transportation , of education , and a
on , which in other worda mran t
Germany and ether countries see

From the Saratoga Journal.
Before the days of railroads Horace
Grooloy left Utica ono morning In a
atago conch. Hia only fellow-paaaon-
gor waa a gentleman of prepossessing
appearance , with whom ho fell Into
conversation. After n while the stran
ger drew a clgar-caso from his pocket
and offered Its contents to Mr. Grooloy
for him to take from It n cigar. Ho
declined the pollto offer , nnd the con
versation waareaumod. Presently the
gentleman taking a cigar from the
caao , put It In hla month , and return
ed the case to hla pocket. While they
were talking ho abruptly bat court
eously remarked to Mr. Grooloy :
"I hope , air , you have no objection
to a cigar ? "
"Nono lu the world. " answered
Grooloy , "whon it la not lighted. "
"Oh , " ropllodthogontloman , "I had
