For everyone in this town knew him as "Jiui," plain Jimmie, large of stature and of heart, and the manager of one of the packing bouses. "Jim" used to dwell in tbe sylvan dales of Colorado, long ago, when the down was fuzzy on bis cheek, and it was there he rode fences for his father, that is, kept tbe fences in repair around his father's range. Jim was callow and careless in those days, but bis father soon learned that he was valuable, and put him on a salary equal to bis best men. Jim's fatber had a system somewhat likethis: All meu living at their own homes and working on tbe range drew down thirty-five dollars per month, and those who boarded at the ranch bouse tweutv-flve per month—that may not be just correct, but tbe idea is there just the same. Jim's father placed tbe timekeeping job in tbe bauds of his son, and wbeu pay day came around 'Jitn paid the whole outfit. Jim was drawing twenty-five per month. One pay day bis father was looking over tbe accounts, and be found that Jim had made out his own check for thirty-five ollars. How's this Jim, I'm only paying you twent-flve?" asked bis father. Jim looked as harmless as he sometimes does now. "You said all those living at home were to get thirty-five a month. And ain't I living at home?" And his father had to stand for tbe raise. So it was that, early in life "Jim" Simpson showed tbe making ot financier. "I'm a believer in the city beauti- f\il," said Mr. Fitzgerald, proprietor of the Hotel Vendome, the other morning, and he worked and raked about the palms in front of his boa telry. Every morning the energetic proprietor is at work putting his strip of city frontage in apple pie order. "If everyone along the street would take pains to clean things up in froti of their store or home, we could be holding out inducements to tourists with some degree of pride," he said. •"It would be a good scheme to form some kind of clean citv committee." And the hustling hotel man ia right about it. The Halcontent. When the days are hot and diy, He longs for rain ; And when it's wet his tongue doth cry Some other pain. Fly Time. N w comes supernal summer With its days of dust and heat; And that busy little hummer The fly, from his retreat Blooms forth like summer roses, And with hid trunk reposes, On our unoffending noses, Till we cry "Confound the thing!" and with frantic gestures try To kill thut fly. Now see the busy servant With her duster, how she looks With her piercing eye observant O'er the picture frames and books, For thoHe little, round black spots Like so many polka-dots; They're the fly's forget-me-nots Kver there, Fur they l»avo thoir dirty footprints everywhere, I do declare. uirlHsii niiin sits ut his ease, And dozes oVr his paper; But very HOOD, the Hies, they tease, And • 'f-r fiis halil head wiper.
