I Interesting Anecdotes to Trove Tllnt Lnyv, Tolltlca, Religion, Philosophy, IIIHIOI-.V, Trade, Finance, Pootry and Pugilism Are All Local Issues. [.Special CurrcsiKindence.] HARRISBUIIO, Aiiril 28.—For study of character, for variety in conversation, for opportunity to listen to discussions of every topic under the sun -law, politics, religion, philosophy, history, trade, finance, pootry, pugilism. I etc.—there is no place under heaven liko the smoking room of a Pullman. The pilgrim useiV to think we as a people woro strictly and indeed one; in characteristics, in tastes, in habits of life—a veritable "E pluribuB unum," ns it were. Ho doesn't think so now. Observations from lakes to gulf, from the Atlantic to tho Pacific, for half a score of years have taught him to tho contrary. Take the Old World, with its differentiated forms of life in habit and in appearance. Its nation divided people are scarcely more unlike than our own, taken by states; their Jews and Turks than our "Knickerbockers" and "Hoc- siers;" their pride soaked Spaniards and tame lived Dutch than our "P. F. V.'s" and Oregon "webfeet." Thero wore six of ns in the smoking room out of New Orleans on tho Queen and Crescent one night last week. One New Yorker, one Indianian, ono Marylander, one Yankee from Maine, ono Kansas chap and the pilgrim.' Politics was the theme, and Lord, how our tongues rattled I Everyfollow "had it in" for every other fellow. There was ono Hill man, ono Cleveland man, one Gorman man, one Blaine man, one Harrison man and ono Philistine of a Farmers' Allianco advocate. Tho Hill man pitched into Cloveland, tho Cleveland man dittoed Hill, the Gorman man both; the Blaine man thumped Harrison, the Harrison man cat-o'-nino-tailed Blaina, the Democrats annihilated the Republicans, tho Republicans "mopped the floor" with the Democrats, while that Ishmaolite of a Farmers' Alliance man desiccated all the rest. What fierce denunciation of corruption in politics: what championing of tho people's rights; what scathing rebuke of demagogism! Wisdom crowded the compartment, stuck out of the windows and fell off in great chunks along the road. The pilgrim noticed, though, that locality seemed to govern every man's politics and shape his arguments, for tho Hill man was the New Yorker, the Gorman was the Marylander, the Indianian was for Harrison and tho Maiuo Yankeo sung tho praises of Blaine, while the advocate of greenbacks galore and a government pawnshop a la Farmers' Alliance was tho Kansan, whooping it up for Peffor aud Simpson. So tho pilgrim wrote it dowil for future reference that locality makes our politics, just as it governs also our morals and shapes our creeds in religion. Look at God's country, will you?" said a stalwart Kansan, ono of a party in tho smoking room out of Topeka on the "Cannon Ball" train ono day to the rost of tho group, waving his hand toward tho window; "Kansas, tho promised land of milk and honey, gentlemen." "Holy smokel" retorted a pink eyed Jorseyman of the party, "God's country? Why, my friend, if Jonah had come to this country when ho ilod from the presence of the Lord, the Lord would never have found him, for I don't believe the Lord ever did visit this desert. God's country! This forsaken corner of creation God's country!" "I was down in Jersey once," calmly put in the Kansan, "spent a month there; lost over thirty pounds of flesh in the four weeks. All I could got to eat in tho whole mouth was Jersey mosquitoes served up as quail on toast, with a few shoots of asparagus that I mistook for a bundle of toothpicks, and really never was quite sure whether it was asparagus or toothpicks, it was so infernally tough and dry." The trouble with Kansas," insinuatingly retorted Jersey, "is that her Specially Adapted for Use in Hard Wate* I people don 't know how to properly util ize her resources.

Why don 't tho cussed fools who get caught on these wind swept barrens utilize them as they ought?" "How's that? I'd like to know," said the Kansan. "To get out of sight of the measly, grasshopper, jack rabbit and coyote infested abode of desolation," snorted the Jerseyman as he stalked out of the amoking room. Telling the above incident to a party in the smoking room one night out of Chicago, on the Rock Island road, the conversation at once drifted to the subject of state pride generally. Among the party were representatives from each of the states of Massachusetts, Kentucky and Colorado, each of whom proceeded at once to champion his particular state as the place par excellence for climate, resources and character of citizenship. Talk of eloquence, of grandiloquent description, of originality of argument, of utter abandon of statement, it was genluB itself, and the pilgrim was never so proud of being an American in his life. Directly the Massachusetts man got the floor. "Gentlemen," said he, "it'a no use talking, Massachusetts is the bright particular star in the galaxy of statehood, and, if you please, I'll give yon a toast: Hero's to old Massachusetts, her men, her mills, her churches and her schools, H Her men are patriots every one. Her millH make everything under tho au.ii. Her churches tbe way U> heaven guide. And her school* we tho nation's safety and pride." Then up rose the Kentuckian. "Gentlemen." said he, "that 's all very wen for Mn*aachu»ett«, but here's to old Ken- tricky, tho fairest gem in tho nation's crown; her men, her women, her horses and her whisky. "Her nion are strong, her horses fleet. Her women are hnnusomo and very sweet. Her whlsky'fl almighty hard to beat. And without her creation woulda't bo complete" Then Colorado asserted herself in tho I person of the slouch hatted aud profane Denverite. "Gentlemen, all the world knows Colorado is tho biggest trump in tho deck. Here's to Colorado, hor men, her mines, | her mountains and her mules. "Her men urn tho boss Knloots that walk, . Her mines pan out the stuff that talks. Her mountains aro tho grandest in all crca- t!-m And her mules aro a oross between h—1 and d—-n—t— n." "Verily," soliloquized tho pilgrim, "state prido is a great thing, and a good place to see it assert itself is in tho smoking room of a Pullman." One cold, stormy night in January back in the eighties, five of us wuro seated in tho smoking room en route from Indianapolis west. One of our number was u glnm looking, swarthy comple.'honcd, stiff haired, unsocial man, who smoked in silence and seemed greatly bored by the conversation of tho rest of tho party, never smiling even at the bust jokes rehearsed by tho others, who vied with each other in an effort to mako things cheerful for him with their Brooking room yarns. Tho pilgrim don 't like your grum, unsocial fellows. Your human hedgehogs, who rolling themselves into a ball of taciturnity and nnapproaohableness with porcupine quills of nonappreciativeness sticking out all ovor them, Beem to him the embodiment of selfish meanness. This fellow in particular gave him tho chills; he was so gruntily nonro- sponsive, so sour visaged, such a wet blanket to tho cheerf ulnoss aud good fellowship of the rest, smoking on in grim silence: while wo wished him elsewhere and in our minds relegated him to the limbo of utter disfavor. Directly tho train conductor entered the compartment, followed by a motherly looking, gcuteelly dressed woman, whom ho introduced as "A good Samaritan, gentlemen, seeking aid for a desti tuto family in one of the forward cars.' 1 "A sick man, gentlemen," sho said, "who has a wife and six little children, and they'vo lost their tickets somehow and aro penniless besides, havo no money to pay their fare, and must be put off the train at Terre Haute unless aided by tho charity of the other passengers." "Cortainly, madam," was the ready response of four of the occupants of tho smoking room. And four silver dollars passed into tho hand of the Samaritan. Tho hedgehog grunted, "Same old story—frauds, no doubt; dead beats: playing on the sympathy of the public. Put 'era off, conductor; that'smy advice How hateful he seeemed. It wouldn't havo taken much urging to have induced the organization then and thoro of company of four Whitecaps to chastise Ui>, grunting brute for his inhumanity. The Samaritan said: "Of course, sir you need not give anything if you think tho family unworthy, but I really thiuk they aro deserving. Tho man tells mo he has a brothor down in Tennessee, and if ho can only get to him ho will heir caro for them all, and ho's really too sick to stop off aud I thought I" What's that you say?" interjected tho hedgehog. "From Tennessee? Whero are tho family? Show mo tho way Which car aro they in, did you say? Gen. tleuien, I'll attend to this matter. Hore madam, ,'^ivo the gentlemen back their money. This is my business." The follow seemed actually excited and while tho rest wondered the woman led tho way to the family, tho hedgehog at hor heels, followed by a suspicious quartot of unbelievers in his good inten tions. If that fellow insults that sick man I'll knock him down," whispered one of the other gentlemen to the pilgrim, and the pilgrim said "amen." Prone on a seat in the second class coach was the Bick man, a sallow and cadaverous appearing consumptive. The wife, a mite of a woman, weeping. The children howling in chorus, a scared looking set, a poverty stricken group indeed. This is the family, sir," said the Samaritan. "You can see they are very poor and in trouble." ire you from Tennessee?" demanded tho hedgehog of the sick man. And the pilgrim Baw the man who didn't propose to see the sick man insulted clinch his fist. "Yes, sir; I was from Tennessee, sir but I've been living in tho Wabash bottoms lately and got sick thar, sir. I'm frcm Wakely county, sir," feebly .an- swt red the Bick man. "What's your name?" fairly shouted the hedgehog in a blaze of excitement. "Wistor's my name, sir; my family live in Wakely county. My wife thar, she's from Wakely, too, sir. Her name was Glenn, sir," "Great Godl Mary Glenn; and you are Jim Wister?" gasped the hedgehog "Why, look here, man; I'm an old school muto of yours. I'm from Wakely county, Tenn., myself. Hero you, conductor; what's the fare to St. Louis first class for this whole family? Thoy're going through; and here, you Pullman man to tho Pullman conductor, who had fol | lowed tho party into tho car, "take this I whole crowd back into the Pullman. | Give 'em two whole sections. These are friends of mine. I'll pay the bill. Here, gentlemen; some of you help carry this sick man to the sleeper. My God! From old Wakely county, Tenn. Mary Glenn and Jim Wister!" ' The quartet assisted in the removal of tho family back to the Pullman, saw them snug in their lierths, Baw them led bountifully from the buffet, saw a big roll of bills pass into the hands of tho little wife und mother from the paw of the hedgehog, saw the children laugh for very excess of comfort, while tears of gratitude wet the cheeks of tho sick man. And then the pilgrim sought his berth, saying softly to himself, "Verily, state pride has its uses, aud a good place to learn lessons of life is tbe smoking room of a Pullman." L. F. COPKLAND.
