$1,000 to his bank , and , with government
bonds for security , got it discounted for

hero , let him stand up , I want to see
There was an impressive silence.
Members on both sides looked at each
ether inquiringly , but nobody stood up.
There was no applause and no laughter ,
but Mr. Barter had referred to a cold
fact'that struck home to every man in
the house. "
"I rise to a parliamentary inquiry , "
said the gentleman from Iowa.
"Tho gentleman will state it. "
"Is this a congressional debate , or a

THE SMOOTH YOUNG WIDOW.
How She Checked thu Mntrlmnnlul Schemes
if HU IClilcr .Sinter.
Chicago Tribune : "Do you think it
wrong to toll stories about your ago ? "
asked the girl in the whlto linen suit.
"Not unless you are found out , " re
plied the girl with cherries in her hat.
"But what has happened that you ask ? "
"I'll toll you. You sec , it is bad enough
to have your younger sister a widow ,
w thout bavin-- ! her interfering with
your Ilirtations. "
"I should say so. Why , there ought
to bo a law against it. "
"So there ought. I was furious when
she asked Ned to help her with her
Latin , but when she got to making eyes
at young Dr. Wiseman it was too much.
You see , his fad is philanthropy , and I
had been trying for months to make him
think it was mine , too" . ,
"You poor dear , what an awful bore ! "
"So it was ; but I know it would bo
easy enough to drop it once we were
"O , yes , of course. "
"So , of course , when Annie raised
those big blue eyes of hers to his own
and asked , with a little tremor in her
voice , if ho would not show her how to
forget her sorrow in helping others. I
felt it was going entirely too "far. The
idea ! When I was wearing myself to
skin and bono over his odious free' kin
"Yes , and braving all manner of un-
p'casant.iess by bogging inonoy from
your father for the children's hospital
ho was interested in. "
' Yes , indeed ; why , ho ought to have
boon more attentive to mo than ho was ,
for I told him that I saved it all out of
my allowance. That was meant to servo
a double purpose , you see ; ho would
think pupii must bo very wealthy to give
mo snob a largo allowance and that I
was an angel to save it for the hospital. "
'I BOO ; what a wise girl you are ! "
' Wait until you hoar all. You see , I
felt It my duty to protect him from
Annie's schemes , BO I told him that she
was a good deal older than I "
"Of course ; you wore "
"Well , things wont on nicely until I
was taken ill. Of course ho was called
In to attend mo and , O Maud , I lay on
the sofa with the window shades lowered
and a big buno'.i of carnations on the

lost tea gown. The very tone of voice
in which ho asked to BOO my tongue and
the way In which ho hold my hand
while ho felt my pulse told mo that I
was succeeding. I could see that Annie
was steadily losing ground. "
"Of course , but "
"Ycsj but she would hover around all
the time ho was thcro. I would ask for
water , but the sly thing just rang the

in hastily : 'Oli , Annie , dour , will you

Living somewhere -Webster Btrcot
in Oakland , says the California World ,
is a gentleman whoso Christian name is
Frank , and ho is a strict business man.
Ho is ono that has his own peculiar
ideas about married life. Ho thinks is
a man provides liberally for his wife
that ends Ills obligation.
Several years ago ho took unto him
self a wife who married him for love
alone , expecting to bo with him always
when his day's work at the olllco was
over. Everything went along smoothly
until a few months ago when he joined
the Masons. Ho proved to his wife that
it was a matter of business Jor hoibone -
fit. In the first olaco it was ono of the
largest orders and would bo the means
of bringing- his linn increased patron
age. Then boing-a Mason showed that a
man was a person ofgofld character and
standing in the corqmuuity , to etiy noth-
iftg of the benefits -she wotil'd derive
after his death.After considerable
parley ho got her " eonsenlAo join.
Ono morning the" druggist whom this
family patronized , opened his eyes when
Mrs. . < Frankitsked for four of-his best
cigars , paying for the same 91- :
Now , if-Mr. Frank is cranky on any
subject It is his intense hatred of
tobacco in any form whatever , and his
innocent looking little wife know this.
Why , when ho engaged a gardner the
first question ho would ask was : "Do you
smoke or chow tobacco ? " The man who
did never found work at his place.
When ledge night would arrive the
young wife looked sad , us she thought of
having to stay all alone until 10 o'clock.
Later on Mr. Frank did not arrive at
homo until 11 and 12 o'clock , but the ex
cuse was always , "Had to stay until the
mooting was over , dear. "
His dear , however , began to got sus
picious that the meetings closed earlier
than her better half said , and that the
extra hours wore spent in the company
of certain "boys" who liked a midnight
supper of eastern oysters. .She sot her
wits to work to think howeho could euro
this husband of hers of his lately ac
quired bad habits.
The night following the cigar pur
chase was ledge night , and Mrs. Frank ,
instead of retiring as usual on this par
ticular night , dressed herself in the
prettiest tea gown In her wardrobe.
Then she practiced a while on the now
song , "After the Ball , " and rent ) until
about 11 o'clock. She then took from a
box a cigar , lit It and watched it burn as
it lay on the fender at her foot. The
ashes wore then carefully brushed into
A few minutes later Mr. Frank ap
peared and was surprised to find "wlfoy"
so cheerful and not in bed. Ho snill'cd
the fragrant fumes of a havana and oIT-
handedly Inquired : "Havo you hud
company this evening , dear ? "
Ho was visibly startled when Bho an
swered "No. "
"Was your brother Charles in ? " ho
further Inquired , but the reply was again
The seed of suspicion was imme
diately sown in his jealous nature , and
after two or three moro experiences of
smelling cigar smoke ho concluded to
slip homo early and unexpectedly catch
the follow who visited his wife in his
absence. Ho discovered when ho got
homo at 10 o'clocksithat everything was
all right , hut laterho was greeted with
tobacco smoke ,
Ho Is at a los jto understand the matter -
tor and too proudt to usk for an oxplunul
tion , but all the KO.UIU ho has. the uiora
courage to toll thca"boys" they will have
to excuse him from their oyster suppers ,
ns his wife "is all alone in the bighonso-
and 'would be Itiightonod to death if
burglars should gpt in. "
In the meantime Mrs. Frank chuckles
to herself and is ) gad ( to got him homo
A. llHtil milieu htory.
A man ontorcilia , pawnbroker's shop in
the Bowery , say * a Now York paper ,
and laying down iv $20 bill asked if ho
could bo accommodated with $1 on it.
The pawnbroker was an excellent judge
of money , and ho saw at once that the
bill was genuine. So ho turned and
said to the stranger , shoving the bill
toward him as ho spoke , that ho was in
no mood for nonsenso. But the stranger ,
shoving the bill back , rejoined in earn
est tones that ho meant business ; that
lie couldn't got any conductor on a horse
car to change the bill ; that ho had
already boon put off three cars ; that his
boots were awful tight , and that unless
ho could got $1 on the bill ho would be
compelled to walk to the Buttery. Well ,
the pawnbroker couldn't but feel that
the stranger mount what ho said. So ho
took up the $20 bill , t jyod with it a few
moments , and then uald to him : "Well ,
my friend , I'd like to accommodate you ,
but owing to the financial stringency I
can only give you 75 couta.

that , aside from her assumption of a
maculino prerogative , sha is usually a
dainty and fastidious bit of femininity ,
who loses not ono iota of her womanly
charm when she puckers her pretty
mouth and whistles a merry tune.
Rather , the roguish twinkle in her eye
challenges censure. To a superficial
observer she is bright , jolly , orig
inal. Know her better and she is frank ,
honest , high-spirited , noblo-hearted ,
superior to the alleged pettiness of her
sex. and , should circumstances require ,
sulllciontly generous to make wonderful
sacrifices for those she loves , for , being
urdent and impulsive , she loves warmly.
She may' hate , too , witli corresponding
enthusiasm , but not for long , for , being
tender of heart and believing alwaya
the best of humanity , this harsher
sentiment finds no permanent home with
Contrary to the general opinion , she
Is rarely if ever a "tomboy , " and , if she
occasionally maKcs use of her ability to
attract the attention of some delinquent
conductor , it is only when she is hurry

sees the coveted car leaving her perhaps
to a long and weary wait upon tUe side

some possible small boy , but this con

Steadily the car is receding. Can she

that utility should weigh lightly in her

triumphantly enters the car , no ono

Altogether , although inclined to bo
willful and rebellious at times ( and who
admires dull perfection ! ) she Is a girl
fashioned after a free ideal. Is she to
have her vocal freedom restrained by n
cruel conventionality which forbids her
to enliven her own homo witn a pretty ,
birdlike music , while at the samotimoit
not only tolerates , but often pretends to
admire , the vocalist next door who
seeks to entertain the entire neighbor

Strange , DUniiiofl.
Physicians in Ztfow York are inter
ested in the case of Miss Amio Richard
son Baldwin , who died on Friday from a
combination of two ruro diseases ,
syringomyolia find acromogaly. Kucli
disease is rare , dnd it is said that the
combination was never before known.
Acromegaly Is a weird disease for which
neither cause nor remedy has boon dis
covered. One of Miss Baldwin's physi
cians says of the disease : "It ulTccts the
head , hands and feet in such a measure
as to make them grow to gigantic si/.o ,
while the body itself retains its normul
conditions. Persons sutlering from tlio
disease present a grotesque appearance.
Their holies , Ilosh , nails , cars , chins ,
noses , fingers and toes attain often twice
their ordinary si/.o. Many people with
this ailment have found their way into
museums. There is no pain , and the dis
ease is not necessarily fatal. " The otl-or
disease affects the spinal cord in such a
way that the patient loses entirely the
sensation of pain and tomporatifro ,
though the sense of touch is not affected.
That two such terrible yet grotesque
diseases should attack ono pot-son is cer
tainly romurkablo enough to oxolto the
interest x > f either physicians or laymen ,
Tlin Cannibal Tree.
The cannibal tree of Australia grows
in the form of a gigantic pineapple , sel
dom reaching a height exceeding 10 or
12 feet. Its height , however , is not a
criterion to its diameter , as the reader
will Imagine when told that ono 8 feet
in height may bo 5 foot through at the
base. Tlio. ' ' .loaves" resemble broad
planks and are frequently 15 fcot long ,
20 inches broad and li feet thick at the
base. Those board like leaves all put

form a-Hort of an umbrella around the

which those , loaves concontrato'aro two
concave figures , resembling dinner
plates , ono above the othor. These are
constantly filled with an intoxicating
honey , A bird may light upon the cdgu
of these or a man or an animal may
walk up the leaven to indulge In stolen
sweets , but death is the penalty for such
rashness. The instant the honey recep
tacles arc\ touched the leuvoscloso like

1 imrdeil a train of tiio Southern I'-elllo
Hallway eomp.tuy at El I'aso ami moved
westward without stop till I reached Ptuuiilk ,
Ariz. , passing through Ddiutnir , Lortlrtbiirg ,
Benson , Tucson , Mi\rlcoi.i | ami other towns
on the way. The cauutr.y lying ulotic this
route of travel botwoou tlio cities tnarklitK
the two extremes of my Juuruuy is la soiuu
places routrli , brokja ami hilly. In HOIIIO it
Is a vast level plain , vvlillo In others It is
rugged , rooky ami mountainous. Most of It
is a dry , hot , barren , uiHuttlod region. 'In
its natural condition It repels r.xihur tliuii
attrnets Immigration. In the southeastern
part of Arizona I passed through n section
embracing many square miles covered with
a whlte-loolcing sand. Us surface- was level
ami appeared solUas if tucked by running
over It a roller of linmunse weight. It was
smooth aslass ( and seemed to jjlaro and
( listen in the sunshtiio. Not a slnulo blade
ot grass or a llower , shrub , hush , tree , or
oven a weed could bo soon upon It. It was
absolutely destitute of vegetable growths of
every kind. In going from Murlcopa north-
warn to Pluumx 1 saw a few speelmuns of
the giant cactus. They towered to a height
of forty and forty-llvo feet and were about
two foot In diameter. They were deeply
llutoil , of rich green color , columnar in form ,
ami well protected with "thorns" or "stick
ers" as they are Killed In popular language.
Ihroiighout largo portions of both Now

for them to llvo together in "towns. "
Phetilx is the territorial capital of Arizona
anil the county seat of iMavieopa county. It
is situated about two miles north of Salt
river on a low , level pieeo of
land a few miles , comparativelv ,
from the geographical eentT Of the terri
tory. It is cntlreH' surrounded by moun
tains , standing at a distance ranging from
six to twelve miles. Its streets are wide ,
carefully laid out and heavily shaded with
trees , many of which have already attained
considerable sito. Through them runs an
extensive system of street railway. VVhilo
operated oy horses nt present , electricity
will be the motive power insldo of sixty
days from this writing. The city is equipped
with a telephone , system , a regularly organ
ized flro department , an electric light plant
and a public waterworks plant. It lias
several good hotels , a largo number of excel
lent ousiness blocks , with others in process
of erection , and many handsome residence
houses. A largo well built court housu and
commodious city hall , of xvhlch any town
might Justly fool proud , are among'its pub
lic buildings. In the city ball thu
legislative assembly of the territory
holds its biennial sessions. The
court house anu city ball stand
each in tlio center of .1 full square. The
grounds surrounding them are covered with
grassy lawns , adorned with flowers , shrubs ,
vines and trees of various kinds. For a city
its size the school houses and churches seen
there are much superior to ttio average of
such structures. Three daily newspapers
supply its people with the latest information
touching current events. Amomr its maiiu-
lacturing establishments are two ice factor
ies , mi iron foundry , three planing mills
and ono roller process Hour mill The yards
and grounds siirrouiidlng dwellings are orna
mented with Mowers , vines , fruit and shade
trees. The streets nnd all private and pub
lic ; grounds are under irrigation. The popu

business activity everywhere prevails.
For a period of some three or four months
during the summer season the woatlior is
oppressively warm , the thermometer rising
at times to 101) ) . 105 , 110 , and on very r.ire oc
casions to 115 ° In the shade. The remainder
of the year , however , is exceedingly pleas
It should perhaps bo remarked hero that ,
owing to the greater dr.ynoss of tlio atmos
phere one does not. perspire and swelter so
freely in Phumix as in liiany oilier localities
with a lower temperature but where the nir
is moro heavily laden with humidity. Even
in midwinter the thermometer very seldom
sinks to the freezing point. While spending
a week in I'limnix 1 feel Into tlio custom of
sleeping out of doors , a habit almost univer
sally prevalent thcro during the summer
months. Nearly all the hotels and many
private houses are provided with a wide
porch at cacli story for that imrposo. Upon
tbcso a sunlcient number of cots or narrow
beds are kept to accommodate those wishing
to use them. As for myself , I found out-of-
door sleeping enjoyable in the extrotno. On
the going down of the sun the thermometer
sank to a i-omfortublo temperature. The
evening air became delightfully cool. AbDvo
me bent the keep blue sky. a mngnilicont
dome , a bc-Jowoled canopy. Tlio-inoon was
robed in queenly bounty. Tlio stars
glittered lllto diamonds in an nrched
setting of iizui-o1 hue. The atmosphere was
rife with the sweet perfume of shrub and
llower. My brow was softly fanned by a
gentle brcozo. Tlio song of bird occasionally
broke the nightly stillness. And under the
combined effect of all , enchantment quietly
stealing upon mv senses , I often fell asleep
amid the music of rustling trees , iutor-
minitled now and then with thosoundscf gur
gling water ( lowing by the street sldo.

its vicinity. It is estimated that this river
In its natural flowage 1ms a capacity for
irrigating 200,000 acres and by a system of

Till ? was May 1 and ns the islands are en

for ninety days , with a promise that before
that time another schooner woiud ho sent to

dently had some idea that they would bo loft

a friend in this city when the schooner
sailed from Clipporton island , tolling him of

the letter public in case no relief expedition
was sent out within a specified time. It is
said the eomnany made no move toward re
moving the sailors and Jensen's friend pub.

Colonel John Jacob Williams was born in
Hockingham county , Virginia , Juno 14 ,

an old family bible in his father's hand
writing. He moved from Virginia to Ken
tucky in the year 181U , while Guuural Jack
son was standing the Hritish oil' at Now
Orleans. In his younger days Colonel
Williams knocked around the world a good
deal , llatboating sU-amboating nnd
piloting on the lower Mississippi.
Ifo also spent a good many
years farming. lie moved to Council HIutfs
