Ilorso Note" .
A sliorttlmo ago there appeared several
coinintinicatlons concerning tlio claimed
record of 20 : for Zulu , owned by Colonel
Popplotou. The manner in which this
record was obtained caused two chal
lenges to issue , with big money back of
them , that Zulu could not make any
where near such u record. These chal
lenges have called forth no response jot ,
and the horsemen interested urn wonder
ing ut the silence. The last numbr of the
Chicago Horseman contains a colored
cartoon setting out tlio manner in which
judges lit some of thn tracks make tin
records to accommodate their friends.
His said to have been suggested by tlio
alleged manner in which Zulu was given
n record here. The take-oil' is a merry
one anyway , and there is much truth pic
tured , of course , in the exaggerated form
common lo cartoons. A great deal of sport
is boinv made about the allair , and the
only way of escape seems to DO the accept

Carrying u Concealed Pipe.
Now that the old police force have
dolled their stars the boys sit around and
tell of the varied experiences , not only
'fcssing , but peaching on their follows.
"Did you hear , about Jack catching a
follow at the Pacilic house for currying
concealed weapons ? I guess you news
paper fellows never did get onto that. 1
might as well toll you now. There was a
traveling fellow there who had an elegant -
gant meerschaum pipe , in a case , and ho
had it in his pocket. Some of tlio boys
thought they would bother Jack a little ,
and so they pointed out this fellow to him
and put him on , tolling him he was a con
man , ono of the worst sort , and a shooter.
They told Jack that ho ought to run
him in , but that he must lookout and not
give the fellow a chance to pull his gun.
Ho had a big ono in bis overcoat pocket ,
right hitiuly. Jack managed to pass
along near the follow two or three times ,
brushing sort of against his coat pookot ,
and satisfied himself that the fellow had
n revolver sura. Ho thought that ho
could run him in for carrying concealed
weapons , if he couldn't get anything else
against him. Jack was dentil on con
men , you know. Well , the traveling
man was Just stepping out of the hotel
ollice. as innocent as a lamb , when Jack
thinking it was his last show for nipphur
him , stopped up to him and
asked him ono or two questions , as
to what his n at no was , whcrcQho came
from , where ho was going , etc. The
traveling man , not knowing it was an
ollicor , thought ho was mighty impudent ,
and ho cut him oil'short. . This made
Jack think btill morothat ho was crooked ,
and as the fellow happened to put his
hand in the pookot , Jack made up Ids
mind it was then or novor. Jaok , you
know , is plucky , and ho did not propose
to give Iho follow any bhow to shoot , so
ho grabbed him , saying , "I'll show yccs
whither yccs [ can carry concealed
weapons in the state of Iowa or not , "
and before the fellow know what was go
ing on , Jack iiad the coine-a-alongs onto
him , and had dived into the fellows
pookot and dragged out Iho supposed rn-
volvor. As Jack's eyes rested on the
ciiho covering a meerschaum pipe , ho
willed , and the roar which came from
the crowd peeking from around the
corner drowned tlio travelling man's
cusses , as Jack lot go and began apolo
gising , The gaug had worked Jack for
all ho was worth , and tor weeks it wasn't
safe for any fellow to whisper in his ear.

The vexed question of the city scales
will soon bo before the council for some
acllon. The city owns a set of scales ,
which are located at the city building ,
wliilo the space between the city building
ami the jail is intended for the market
place. ThiB has been practically uban-
doucd for two veurs past , mid the busi
ness has been mainly done by tlio scales
at the intersection of Main and Pearl
streets. Those scales are said to bo lo
cated on city property , but are owned
and controlled by private parties , The
street is used us the standing place for
thu hay wagons ; etc , Tlio merchants iu
that vicinity have been glad to have the
pcalos and tiie market place there , as they
think it helps trade in that locality. The
official weighmastcr is. however de
prived of the revenues of the office , and
as the city i entitled to 2D per cent of all
ills receipts , the city treasury does not
receive its portion of the bu inc.s. \ \ ith
the new wcighmaster coining into ollice ,
an attempt will be made to have him do
Iho weighing and take the receipts. The
attempt to force the business from its
present center on Main street to the city
building will meet witli much opposition.
It is understood that the private scales
will not bo abandoned without a fight.
Still , it seems that an officer elect should
be protected by the city in nil his rights ,
and llio nalural revenue of the ollico
should bo his. Otherwise it is a farce to
elect a weighmaster.

A Child Without a Country.
Washington letter : Everybody is famil
iar with Edward Evorct Halo's story , "A
Man Without a Country. " A very vol
uminous correspondence between United
States and Consul Shackclford at Nantes
and the stale department , recently made
public , contains the details of a story , less
interesting , perhaps , but none the less
true , of a child without a country. The
facts briefly stated arc these :
Some years ago Charles Busch , a natur
alized German-American , accompanied
by his pretty , Italian wife , sailed for
Franco to accept an engagement as a
tenor singer in one of the opera compa
nies in Paris. En route , a child , who was
named Charles Herman Busch. was born
to them. The mother died shortly after
reaching Franco , and Iho father soon fol
lowed her. The child , having boon born
on Iho high seas , was literally without a
country. The French authorities refused
to administer upon the father's estate or
provide fa guardian for the infant , be
cause neither of tlio parents was u citizen
of llio republic. Consul Shackolford
could do nothing without permission of
the government After two years' delay
this permission was finally granted. The
American colony in Paris became inter
ested in the child , who is said to bo re
markably bright and preccious , and a
fund has been subscribed sufficient to
rear and educate him until his 10th year ,
when an effort will bo made to appoint
him a cadet at the naval academy at An
napolis. The little fortune of 27,000
francs , the proceeds of his father's cstalc ,
will bo invested for him and placed at his
disposal when ho shall have finished his
A Fly Man Cnuglit.
Dnlroit Free Press : "Ono of the curious
traits about those French-Canadians , "
said a fly man yesterday , "is the fact that
they never die of old ago. Some seven

Frenchman out of $15 on the throe-card

grasped me and'a voice cried out :

"I looked around to find that same old
Frenchman hanging to my sloovo. I
couldn't sco that he had changed a parti
