ST. PAUI , Minn. , Juno 0. [ Special Tolo-
grain to Tni ! Urn. ] That rnrmcr Is notn
success nn a . nrt atop was conclusively
demonstrated tu .o 2,000 people who saw
lilui attempt to till Plckott's shoes to duy.
Of the four grounders knocked to him , ho
handled but ouo with effect , nnd thro'j of the
five runs of the visitors nro traced directly to
his blunders. The game was one of the most
exciting of the season , The Ncbrasktins
took a lead In the first Inning , and the Apes >
ties pulled up to even terms In the fourth , '
only to have the visitors force abend ngaln
in the fifth. They uddod again in the sixth ,
nnd the score ran 5 to 2 until the ninth
Inning. Daly opened with a slashing
grounder to Walsh , who lot it go by him.
Fanner dropped a high fly into Naglo's
hands , but Uroughton sot the crowd to
cheering by pasting the leather to center for
h base. Daly flow around to third , nnd
Broughton took second on the throw In.
Tuckorman hit ono hard to Crooks , who
fumbled It awhile , but retired his man. Daly
Beared nnd Biougnton inado third , Hawos
came up with a smile and a "wagon tongue , "
nnd was requested from all sides to knock it
over the fence. Ho hit it a rousing thwack ,
nnd It got away from Andrews , Crooks and
Strauss , Broughtou scoring and Hawes
going to second.
It was a critical moment. A hit would tlo
the flcoro , nnd Murphy , who had already
inado two pretty singles , swung the willow.
Ho waited and got two bad balls. Then
Umpire Cuslck culled , "Ono strike. " The
next ball came singing alone and Murphy hit
it a hard crack. It went high , however , and
landed securely m Willis' hands , giving the
game to Omaha.
This is the first tlino St. Paul has lost two
games in succession. Tuckorman pitched
well throughout. Ho was hit safely but six
times , for a total of eight bases , and four of
these hits wor& made in the sixth and sev
enth innings. Ho gave half a dozen men
bases on balls , but only ono of these devel
oped into a run. Nichols also pitched in fine
form , being hit safely not more than ouco in
nnv Inning except the fourth nnd ninth. The
Homing feature was a remarkable catch by
Daly at the loft field foUco. Umpire Cusick
got Into hot wntor early in the contest for
not pleasing the crowd with his decisions ,
nnd ho was roasted to a turn. Three times
ho called St. Paul men out on bases at critical
moments when they scemcu safe , nnd the
spectators manifested a disposition to bo
ugly.
Tlioro will bo no game to-morrow , the
came scheduled being postponed until Tues-
aay.

An Unknown Man Klllril Uy n Mis-
-soiirl I'.iolllo Train.
An unknown man met his death under the
wheels of n Missouri Pacific freight trnln nt
the foot of Locust street , at 11:30 : o'clock last
night. A switching crow , composed of En-
; mocr Sam Dean nnd Brnkomon Wllllnm
Lahoy nnd James Hnnnhor , were hacking n
train of freight cars to a siding , when Lnhc.v
nud Hannhor , who were standing on the ton
of the rear car , saw n mnn lying across the
track. Brakes were promptly sot , but too

over the unfortunate mnn , who wns cut al
most in twain nnd badly mangled.

The victim was nman between fifty nnd sixty
years of ngo , with smooth shaven face niul

Only a Clerical Error.
Certain rumors have boon nfloat recently
nbout discrepancies in the offlco of Internal
Rovcnuo Collector Calhoun , but the total
shortnga amounts to but $3.40 , and nccordlng
x > Mr. Calhoun's statement , is only nn error
of ono of the clerks in the offlco. It seems
; hat twelve couuons of twenty cents each
can not bo accounted for , which puts the
looks out of balance , nnd this matter coming
about the time a chnngo is to take place In
.hoofiico , makes it disagreeable for Mr. Cal-
loun , who excuses the clerk's ' error on nc-
count of the great rush caused by the large
amount of extra work thnt came In Mny , the
month ttio shortage occurred ,

Bontliorn Politics.
NEW OIILCANS , Juno 5 , [ Spoclnl to THE
13KK.1 Slnco my last letter 1 have had mi
opportunity of meeting und conversing with
some of the leaders of tha republican party ,
a.id it gives mo great pleasure to iccord a
healthier tone amongst these gentlemen. I
think before very lodg that nil "Iho differ-
cnccs between the Horwlg nnd Colcman
wings of the party will bb.'hcnlcd up , .nnl a
United , if not a triumphant republicanism
will bo the result. 1 have no fooling what
ever In the Into or existing1 disputes between
the Louisiana republicans , but I feel bound
to say Hint A. Hero , Jr. , who supported
Congressman Coleman in the late president
tlal campaign , ( nnd undoubtedlv helped
to elect him ) is responsible for
much of the bitterness of fcellne.
Mr , Hero wasn't known in politics
prior to 18S4 , and to-day you woiild Imagine
ho owned half of the nominations to public
oftlco In fee simple , nud had secured first
morUntro on the remainder. Major Hero is
a small man ( ho stands about 5 fcut 4 Jjchcq
Inch ) , is as peppery as most moil Udrn down
hero nro , hut withal Is a pleasant man to
meet. I took all the major said with n "pinch
of salt. " The general opinion is that as cute
as the major thinks himself to bo , ho hasn't
cut his eye teeth yet in southern politics.
P. E. Horwlg , the chairman of the republi
can state committee , whatever faults ho may
DOSSCSS , is unfalteringly true to the party.
Outside of subsidies granted for the purpose
of practical politics. Horwlg has
srfont freely of his own money. By
all accounts Mr , Horwig seems
to have the car of the president
The Horwig nominations generally go. I
don't think poor Sainbo the "nigger" has
much show with any of the factions. Dud
ley Colcman dreams of n progressive party ,
to include
WHITE AND BLACK ALIKE.
I am afraid his dreams nre. far from hclng
realized. The colored man is denied his con
stitutional privileges to-day jn the city of
Now Orleans as much as ho was fifteen
years ago. , ,
I won't say the colored man 1ft not allowed
to cast his vote but when thlnga'nro nor-
rowed down fine , as in congressional or
presidential elections when the black man
always votes republican .if ho is allowed ;
upon such occasions his vota.niay.bo cast ,
but only such numbers as nrd considered
judicious and allowed to bo counted. The
fourteenth nnd fifteenth amendments nro
dead letters in Louisiana. Said n
prominent cotton nnd sugar planter
to your correspondent the other day , "To
h 1 with your Fourteenth and Fifteenth
amendments. " Who put these "shiuplas-
tors" on the constitution ) .Not wo southern
men. No , sir , wo will never obey thorn. You
may Bring all the federal bayonets down
here you like , hut the
NIQOKUS SHALL KEVElt RULE (73.
You sco the craze is that hogro suffrage
means universal negro government. There
is no doubt but what- the color question is a
knotty ono nnd requires delicate handling.
I sometlnes think tnat there Is moro truth
than poetry in the statement that the north
ern politicians can not appreciate the dim-
culty down hero. I must say that the Louisi
ana negro is a bumptious being , miichrgivon
to cheap scents and jewelry , and always
wears a plug hat on Sunday. Ho-not only
thinks himself as good ns his old mastor/but
since President Harrison's election , a-couplo
of degrees superior.
The citizens of New Orleans the other day
by an overwhelming vote refused to tax
themselves 8 mills for a now system of drain
age and paving. The result was n terrible
shook to the "rlncsters. " I nrctuo from the
result that down bore , oven slow as wo nro
nt "catcning on , " the day of bbodio has gene
by. This tax scheme was only the thin edge
of the wedgo.
As I write a bye-election has boon held in
the Ninth ward. The result has been n de
cided black cyo for the present city govern
ment. The result is looked upon'as very
significant. There were three candidates in
tlio Held. The straight democratic Candi
da to was elected , the republican ticket ran a
good second , and the nominee of the Y. M.
D. A. , i. o. , the party in power , was a shock
ing baa third.
THKIIE WAS LESS nOLT.DOZINO _
adopted at this election than has been known
in many n day. Dudoutiofor , the successful
candidate , Is an old hand lit election games ,
ana I reckon the Y. M. D. A , thought It b'est
to leave their shotguns and Winchesters nt
homo.
Talking of elections and voting I am often
amused at the virtuous "I-nover-do-any-voto-
supprcsslng" air put on by the local de
mocracy down horn.
The politicians hero claim there Is no ballot
box stuffing. They say that the counts nio
always "straight as a string. " This is the
way they manage it : When nn election is
due in Louisiana the names of oil candidates
tk'Kot. "No " "
nro printed on n "scratching"
is allowed. If you don't want to vote for
"A. 13. " you obliterate the name -with a
upastor slip , 'i'hls slip is quietly taken "off by
the "fltio worker" as necessity arises ,
and as often as it is rcquislto to have
a "full hand , " and so the boasted privacy
of the ballot is frustrated. I had an object
lesson the other night , nnd found It highly
interesting. It is is ingcnous to say least.
It is never known to fail. All that 1ms to bo
done is to sccuro the right men as clerks of
election and prevent outside cspomago. The
latter is easily accomplished by the shotgun
policy. Tno former Is only a matter of dollars
lars und cents on election days. So New Or
leans shakes hands with herself nnd says no
ballot box stufllng for mo. I sometimes have
to call nt the city MnU. There are lots of old
employes around this place who wcro hero
WIICS T11E BTAU8 AND UAJIS 1 l ATUI )
ever the building , It i $ plonsint to meet
thcso old stagers. They represent u bjo-
Keno era nnd rapidly decaying class of citi
zens. Ono old "vet" took uio into the may
or's parlor nnd said ;
"Yes , salil ( oven the whites in Now
Orloanshavo acquired a good flual 'of the
negro accent. )
"Yes sab , there is the chair that Mayor
Monroe sat in when the Yunkeo ofllcer came
on the day they took New Orleans. "
"Ho was n gontlouiuu. sub , and took his
hat off when no entered do room , and savs
ho , 'Scuso mo , Mr. Mayor , but would jou bo
good enough to
HAVE DAT J'LAd HAULED DOW.Vt

and den the mayor ho got up and boned and
eays. I'm sorry to say , sub , I am too old to
climb up dat there pole , nnd there Is no man
iu Now Orleans as I could ask to do that
work. "
. So you see , sah. the Yank' oftlcer had to
send Johnny Mnrlno shining up 'tho "ufast-
head Tore our Hag could bo brought down. "
The old follow as ho told mo the yarn
looked as solemn ns a mute nt a funeral nnd
there was a suspicious uiolsturo in his uyo ns
ho moved forward to dust "Maiso Muuioo's
cheer. "
THE VOUDOO I'ltACTICE.
Tboro is n great fuss madn ever the
"voudoo" praeo , lately discoursed upon by
the local papers. The truth of the matter is
that Sambo nnd Dinah Imvo dance houses

A Good Story.
Dnu Moixns , In.Jund 0. [ Special to Tim
Bnc.j A good story Is reported from Water
loo. A young married couple wore passing
through the place , nnd hearing that the
comedian , Charles Gardner , was to piny
there , wanted very much to hear him thnt
night , but their train was to lonvontDsGO
p. m , and they were afraid they might stay
too long nt the show and miss it. So they
arranged that the ticket seller should keep
the number of tholr Boats , nnd when the 'bus
driver called should send nn usher to notify
them. The driver appeared on tiuio , but the
ticket seller had stopped out nnd no ono clso
know where the happy couple saU The
driver was anxious to got his passengers ,
nnd ho synipnthb-cd with tholr fcnr of being
loft , so ho determined to como to their ros-
cuo. Opening the door , ho stalked down the
main nlslo of the little opera house ,
just as Karl was singing his tender
song to the * horolno of the play.
Dut the 'bus ' man Know his duty , nnd ho
wouldn't lot n little thing like n sentimental
song stand hi the way. So notning daunted ,
ho planted himself nbout half way down the
nlslo , nnd raising his hand to his mouth in
flro trumpet fashion , he shouted In tones that
nmdo the windows rattle , "Passengers going
west by the Illinois Central , nil aboard. "
Tno singer was nearly paralyzed with aston
ishment nt the violent Interruption , the
nudlonco , somewhat accustomed to little
things of thnt sort , smiled with manifest
pride at their enterprising 'busman , while
the young couple that had been the innocent
causa of nil this racket quietly rose , nud
sneaked out behind the retreating driver.
It-is with no intention of reflecting upon a
nice little city thnt 'bus drivers are . . . so
anxious to get pcoplo out of it. 13nt they
mean to do their duty , even if they have teA
stop nny pro cession to do so.
A Hitch in the Conference.
Loxnov , Juno 0. The Berlin correspon
dent of the Times says :
"Thoro is good reason to bollovo the Wash
ington government docs not altogether ap
prove the Sninoan agreement , especially In
regard to foreign control in Samoa. There
is no doubt that a hitch has arisen. Appar
ently there is a divergence of opinion regard
ing the punishment of Mntaafn. "
A Fatal teklff lliile.
PiiTsnuua , Juno 0. By the upsetting of n
skiff on the river , this evening , Mrs. Thomas

the totnls of the production of the moro Im
portant mineral substances for IbSS :
MI.TAUS.
Iron nnd Steal The principal statistics
for 1SSS were : Domestic iron ere consumed ,
about 12,000,000 long tons ; vnluo nt mines ,
? 2S,014,000. This is nn incrcaso ever 1837 in
quantity of 7fiO,000 tons , but n decrease In
value of $1,050,000. , Imported non ere con
sumed , C3T,4TO long toni ; totnl iron ere con
sumed in 18S8 , about I'J.OTO.OOO long tons , or
150,000 tons moro than in 1SST. Pig-Iron
inado hi 18S8 , 0,469,733 long tons ;
vnluo nt furnace , $107,000,000. 'JLhU
is an increase ever 1337 of 7 ,590
tons in quantity , but a decrease of $14,023,800
in value. Steel of nil Kinds produced in 1SSS ,
2b99,410 , long tons ; vnluo nt works , $39,000-
000. This is n decrease from 1887 of 439,031
tons in quantity nnd of $14,311,000 in value.
Totnl spot vnluo of nil Iron nnd steel mndo in
1888 , in the first stage of manufacture , ex
cluding nil duplications , $145,000,000 , a de
crease of $20,103,000 ns compared with 1887.
Limestone used ns a flux hi the manufacture
of pig Iron In 1883 , nbout 5,433,000 .long tons ;
vnluciat quarry , about $3,719,000.
Gold and Silver According to the director
of the mint , the gold product was 1,001,927
fine ounces , valued at S3fl , 173,000. This is
nbout the sumo as In 1887 , being an excess of
only $73 000. The silver product wns 45,783-
C32 fine ounces , of the commercial value of
nbout $43,000,000 nnd of the coining value of
$59,193,000. This is nn increase of 4,515.837
ounces ever the product in 1837. In addition
to the product of our own mines some 10,000-
000 ounces of silver were extracted in the
United States from foreign ores nnd bullion.
Copper The total product , Including
the viold of imported ores , increased
to 231,270,022 pounds , or 115,033
short tons , during lbS8 , which is 40-
053,291 pounds moro than the product of
1887 During the first qunrter of 1839 the pro
duction was increasing ut oven a moro rapid
rate. The prices received uy American pro
ducers averaged 15 cents per pound for
Lake copper , 14 % for Aruonannd 14 for oilier
districts : making the total value $33,833,951.
Montana led in the production , making
07b97,9CS pounds. Consumption was some
what reduced uy the nigh prices.
Load The product Increased to 180,533
short tons from 100,700 tons in 1887. The in
crease wns duo principally to the heavier
receipts of lead in Mexican silver-lead ores
from 15,000 tons in 1837 to over 27,000 tons in
1838. The average price in Now York was
4.41 cents per pound. The production of
white lead , chlelly from pig lead , was b'J,000 '
short tons , valued nt $10,050,000.
Zinc--The erection of new works and the
extension of old ones , led to n further
notable increase in the production of zinc in
1SS8. The additions to capacity were fairly
uniformly distributed iu the west , east nnd
south. Production in 18b8 , 35.90J short tons ,
with n total value of $3,5tKb55 ; in 1887 ,
50,340 tons , worth $4,782r.0l ) . The produc
tion of zinc white m lbS8 , directly from ores ,
was 20,000 shoi t tons , worth Sl.UW.OOO.
Quicksilver the product was ,1J,23D flasks
( of 70U pounds each ) from California , n de
cline in tnnt state of 510 flasks from 1887 , in
spite of n very satisfactory price , which
avornced $42.50 per flask , making the total
value 51,413,125. No now valuable deposits
were discovered in 1838 , and without them
it is not probable that tbo yield of quick
silver will Increase.
Nickel Tne industry remains unchanged
except for indications of further develop
ments nt Lovelock in Nevada and Kiddle ,
Ore , The product includes 1 > 0G37 pounds of
metallic nickel , valued at $114,3b2 at CO cents

Coal The total production of nil kinds of
commercial coal in 1S83 was 142.0J7.735 short
tons ( increase over 1887 , 18,02.2,480 tons ) ,
valued nt the mines | at 8204,221,930 ( increase ,
$30,025,934) ) . This may bo divided into Penn
sylvania anthracite 43,92.2,897 short tons ( in
crease , 4,110,043 short tons ) , or 39,210,872
long tons , including 33,145,718 long tons shipped -
pod by the railroads und canal
nnd reported by their statis
tician , Mr. John H. Jones , and 1,071,151 long
tons sold to the local truuo nt the mines ( in
crease 3,013,430 long tons ) , valued at $33,019-
049 ( increase $ J,231,403) ) ; all other coals , hi-
eluding bituminous , brown coal , lignite ,
small lots of anthracite produoad in Colorado
nnd Arkansas , nnd 4,000 tons of graphitic
coal mined in Hhodo Island , amounting in
the aggregate to 98,114,833 , short tons ( in
crease 13,003,833 tons ) , valued at $118,572,341
( increase W4,341,5b9) , ) .
The colliery consumption nt the individual
mines varies from nothing to S per cent of
the totnl output of the mines , being greatest
nt special Pennsylvania anthracite mines
and lowest at thuso bituminous mines whcio
the coal bed lies neatly borlrbutnl , nnd where
no steam power or ventilating furnaces are
used. The averages for the different states
vary from 2 to ( J 4 per cent , the minimum av
erage being in the Pennsylvania bituminous
nnd the maximum average being in the Penn
sylvania anthracite region.
The total output of the mines , including
colliery consumption , was : Pennsylvania
anthracite , 41,021,010 long tons ( mcroiso
over 1837 , 4Ui.r > 1tli3 long tons ) , or 10,019,504
short tons ( Increase , 4,531t ! < i7 short tons ) ;

Coke The pioduction of colco in the
United States in 1883 was 8.527,500 tons ,

produced by far the largest amount , the
Conncllsvillo region alone producing 1J5- ! )
653 tons ; West Virginia , 53-3,533 tons ; Ala
bama , 518,511 tons ; Tennessee , 8S5OW tons ,
and Virginia , 149,099 tons.
Petroleum Tlio product of petroleum In
the United States in 1853 was 27,340,018
barrels ( of 43 gallons each ) , valued nt about
$34,593,559. Of this amount Pennsylvania
produced 10.491,0b3 barrels ; Ohio , 10,010.bG3
barrels ; West Virginia , 119,4IS barrels ;
California , 704,019 barrels ; and other states.
20,000 barrels.
Natural Gas The amount of natural gas
consumed is given In coal displacement ; that
Is , the amount of coal displaced by the use of
natural gas. It Is estimated that the amount
of coal displaced by natural gas In the Jnltcd
States In IbSS , was 14,103,830 tons , valued at
$22,022,123. Of this amount 12,543MO , tons
were displaced In Pennsylvania ; 750,000 tons
in Ohio ; and 000,000 tons in Indiana.

Building stone Direct returns from the
producers of the various kinds of building
stone show that there was. but a small gain
in value over the figures of 1837 , T > > o value
of the stone produced Iu lb8S is $35,500,000 ,
or $500,000 moro than iu the preceding year.
Uriels and tile Viiluo , $43,213,000. This
flguru represents only a small train ever 1887.
This Is uuo rather to increase iu tbo number
of manufacturing plants than to increased

figures nro not largely In ndvanco ot these
for 1SS7 , nnd the gains nro not so much the
results of Increased production In the leading
lime regions ns In localities of minor Impor
tance.
Cement The amount of cement produced
In 1S33 Is less than for 1887 , being 0,2.52,393
barrels for 1833 , valued nt 72)4 cents per bar

Salt The Industry shows only Blight
changes : In 1SS8 the production wns S.OVi.SSl
barrels of i30 ! pounds , valued nt $1.377,204.
In 1837 the product wns S.OO.I.PfrJ barrels ,
worth $4,093,8-10. Kansas became commer
cial souico of salt In 1883 , producing 155,000
barrels with n prospect ot still greater In
crease In 1830.
Asphnltum The product cf 1SS3 Includes
700 tons of gllsonlte mined In Utah ; It , 100
tons of ordlmiy asphaltum , principally from
California , ind 50,000 tons of bituminous
rock quarried in California for pavements in
competition with nsphultum ; totnl value
$331,500.
Total * The total value ot the minerals
produced in 1SS3 wns $391,039,031. It Is rcc-
ognlrcd that this Is the sum of the value * of
substance taken in various stages of manu
facture nnd hcuco not strictly compninblo
with each olhor ; still It is the most valuable
moans for comparing the total products of
different years. The result Is nu Increase of
nearly $ ' > 0,000,000 beyond the vnlno of the
product In 1837. In thnt year nearly every
mineral industry showed nn Increase , nnd
hence nn Increased total was evident. Hut
the fact that the increase was so very largo
was duo to rather exceptional condi
tions In n few important industries , and It
could not reasonably bo expected that n sim
ilar combination of circumstances would result
sultin oven a larger totnl vnluo for 1SSS.
Nevertheless , the unprecedented stimulus
given to the production of copper by nn arti
ficial price Increased the total value of that
product nearly $13,000,000 , or nearly enough
to offset the dcclmo in the total value of pig
Iron. The other Important factors In the Increase -
crease were coal and the other fuels Which
followed the Increased quantity of metals.
With the anticipated dcclino of copper to the
normal demand , n decline In the totnl value
of the product in 1889 will not bo Inconsistent
wltti the natural development of our mineral
resources.

Among the many breeds of cattle nnd
sheep each may have characteristic
fjood points , ouo breed may hnvo a very
hardy constitution , while another , al
though requiriuc1 much assistance from
the hand of man , may bo calculated to
feed in early life , and make flesh and
fat at a high ratio for the food con
sumed. It is quite evident that by the
intermingling of such breeds n consid
erable portion of the good points of both
may bo _ retained , nnd practice proves
that it is so. However , in crossing , it
appears that in all cases the female
should bo the hardier and the male the
softer breed. The female gives the
constitution and inward organization ,
the inalo the outward : form that is ,
ftom the female may be expected to
como the degree of density iu the bone ,
the size of the heart and blood vessels ,
power of digestion , and power and na
ture of tlio brain ; in truth , the tmrls
ruling the temperament and constitu
tion. From the male como the outward
shape of the body , the flesh , forming
qualities and nature of the skin and
the hair or wool growing upon it. For
instance , it has been found that a cross
between a .West Highland cow and
Shorthorn bull has much the hardiness
and constitution of the female , but at
the same time much of the outward
form , llesh-forining qualities and gen
eral appearance of jho Shorthorn sire.

In these days of co-operative dairy
ing , when cheese is generally made at
factories , it is .impossible to compote
with them in the cost of manufacturing
by any homo dairy , yet it i& nice to
have a few old-fashioned home-made
cheese , to recall the good old times
when wo used to oat the cheese made
by our grandmothers. This is the nlnn
of a Massachusetts lady , who makes
rich , fine and delicately flavored
cheese. The night's milk is strained
into pans until morning , when the
cream is taken oil and the milk
warmed to blood heat , when the cream
is returned to the mill : and thoroughly
mixed. This nrovonts the melting of
the cream , that would otherwise run
off with the whey. The whole is then
put into a tub with the morning's milk ,
nnd sot for the cheese , with rennet
enough to form the curd in nbout thirty
minutes ; and here much care is thought
to bo necessary in cutting and crossing
the curd , and much moderation in dip
ping and drawing the whov from it ,
that the white whey ( so called ) may not
exude from it.
When sufficiently drained , it is taken
and cut with a sharp knife to about the
size and form of dice , when it is salted
with one pound of line salt to twonty-
ilvo of curd. It is then subject to pro's-
sure , moderate nt first , gradually in
creasing it for two days , in the meantime
time turning it twice a'day , and substi
tuting d/y cloths. It Is then taken from
the press and dressed nil ever with hot
molted butter , nnd covered with thin
cotton cloth , and the molted butter. It
is then placed upon a shelf , and turned
and rubbed daily with the dressing un
til ripe for use.

The bov on the farm should bo en
couraged in a substantial way , says the
Farm , Field and Stockman. Ho should
bo given a pig , a calf or a flock of hens ,
to look after in his own right. The
writer remembers his experiences as u
farmer boy in the long ago.Vo were
given a little strip of corn ground for
our own. It bauumo our duty to raise
that corn and enjoy the proceeds.
The prospect of husking and cribbing
the grain was not a cheerful one , and
it occurred to UH that wo ought to have
something to feed it to. So we traded
the corn lor a pig , only to be mot by the
fnct that while wo were not exactly
' out of moat , " wo hud nothing to feed
tiio pig und was in as big a dlloninui us
before. Then wo traded the pig for a
cheup shotgun , and Iho gun for n
cheaper fiddle , which wo broke In two
trying to play seven or eight tunes nt
one time , and sold it fora dollar. With
the dollar we bought stationery and
wrote a school boy Cbbay for the Friday
nftoinooti exhibition , on "lloiv to Make
Farming Pay. " Our decline as a farmer
was rapid but sure , and wo swapped the
uinoll of onions for the odor of disabled
gas jots und became nn agricultural
udilor , making a specialty o- such ur-
tiuloH as corn , pigs , bhotguus and fiddles.
In the light of memory , wo sny glvo the
bovsastart. If they will ti ado them
selves out in boyhood they will learn
lessons of observation and euro that will
boar fruit when the responsibilities of

other day in my hoarlngwrltoa Charles
Lodoror in the Chicago Uorald , Mr.
Davis resides on the North Sldo , nml
his theatre is on West Madison street.
Having , therefore , to patronize , dally ,
the public vehicles of two divisions o (
the city , ho is undoubtedly qualified to
bo something of an export In street cur
othics. The uaubo of this particular
outburst of indignation wns this : Ho
wns in n North Sldo cable car. Opposite
him sat the semblance of n man occupy
ing the space usually allotted to three
passengers. A couple , certainly young ,
and probably loving , entered the car.
The simco on each side of the solitary
individual \\asull the sonllng capacity
not already occupied. Did the party of
the first part move to the right or the
loft In order that the couple might sit
together ? Not a bit of It. Impervious
allko to nn appealing glance from the
young lady nnd a subdued scowl from
her escort ho remained rooted to his
central position. The couple seated
themselves , ono on each sldo of him ,
That was not the worst of it , for it be
came aoparont from the conversation ot
the now-comors , which was necessarily *
above n whisper on account of the bru
tal obstruction between them , that they
were to bo parted for quito a time.
Evidently they must inauo the best of
the present opportunity. This phase ot
the situation was fully grasped by the
brute iu the middle , who just "gloated
and glcod as ho listened and leered"
that sounds lllto a quotation from some
thing or other oven if it isn't.
There was , withal , something fiend
ishly sympathetic about that niclcol-
paying , interloping auditor. When the
conversation between the two young
people was of a serious character ho
loolccd pained , and oven sighed once
when something very distressing waa
alluded to by the blushing and cofi-
scious damsel. Then , when her com
panion said something particularly
cheering nnd oven facetioustho loutish
listener on his right relaxed his Aoyss-
mal mouth into an appreciative grin
that was simply diabolical. LHU °
wonder , then , that Manager Davla
should wax wroth and wonder that
some ono did not stop the breed of tnp
lop-eared middle man and all his } lti (
Faint chance of his e\tinctlonho\vovof. ,
Ho comes of a prosperous nnd rfroljfio ;
family of the genius nuisance , and Is
irrepressible and unchangeable.
Unhappily there are too many of his
kind to kill off. To advocate wholesale
slaughter may bring ono within thV
p.ilo of the law. The street car brutS
is a choice lot : ho is impervious to pub
lic opinion ana deems personal censure
a dainty compliment to his aggrosslVo ,
independent American manhood.
Sometimes he crosses his logs at right
angles with the aisle of the car until
they resemble n poorly constructed
stile , on which occasion ho extracts
much keen enjoyment from the fre
quent trippings ever his feet of his fel
low passengers. If expostulated with
ho is wont to inquire o ! him who expos
tulates : -'Sa a y , d'yor want the
whole car ? " which bright bit of repar
tee acts ns a crusher.
Again , ho will keep his bony logs
within bounds as far as lateral lines are
concerned , but extend them to an IIST
tqnishing degree in a longitudinal
direction. This is his mildest form of
nuisance-mania.
When sullering from an aggravated
attack ho is apt to load himself with a
select assortment of bundles and satch
els and stack them on the seats of the
car ho happens to infest. It requires a
personal altercation with him then to
procure the removal to his lap of even a
sinclo package when the space talcon
up by the latter is required by human
occupation.
Ho willingly suffers from asthma for
the privilege of sitting in a side wise po-1
sltion next to you and musically breathing - '
ing down the side of your nock. And '
when ho is doing this there is a preternaturally - '
naturally innocent look in his face that
plainly tolls that his apparent enjoy
ment of the scenery from the car win
dow is the most pretentious of shams.
