Bryer, for the Logansport Daily .Journal, is very interesting reading, and we are really sorry we cannot copy it for the readers of. the Republican. His description of Washington "sassie- ty" is decidedly picturesque. An experienced editor makes a meaty correspondent. John Mast, saloon-keeper of Lafayette, lighted a match to hunt in a drawer for a, missing article. "There, was a paper of gun-powder lying there, and a spark dropping from the; match caused an explosion in .which Mast was dangerously''injured,'and was rendered, unconscious for some time. He was terribly ••burned about his head and hands, and-onay lose his eyesight.

These ladies were delighted with their: visit. Jerry SJmiwon'N Sockx. A poem that is creating such laughter in Kansas at present, "Jerry Simpson's Socks," i& a satire on the Hon. Jeremiah Simpson, congressman from the seventh Kansas district, who says he will go sockless until the duty is taken off wool. The verses were first published in the New York Sun, and the author' is H. J. McSheehy, editor of the. Chronicle, o£ this ' city. There'"is scarcely a paper in the country that has not copied it: From the wilds of Bleeding Kansas, with hayseed • in his locks, ' With a heart devoid oi fear and with feet devoid of socks, Comes the champion of the Grangers, o{ Hawbuck a;.d of Hodge, The dauntless Jerry Simpson, the prlJe of Medicine Lodge. You may call the roll of statesmen, the living and the dead, You may reckon up the deeds they dtd.the mighty words they said, But there never was a. mun of them who really could compete With sockless Jerry Simpson when he stands upon his leet. 0, how our Jerry thuudeiv.d against th<5 McKlnley bill, And what an avalanche of words'his massK« mouth would fill. As he f eU upon that iaf;unr and gave it kicks and knocks, And for his peroration showed his feet bereft of socks. You may talk about your orators, tho famous men of old, Demosthenes and Cicero, and John, called Mouth • . of Gold. The elder Pitt and Charlie 1'ox and Monsieur Mlrabeau, But along with Jerry Simpson they wouldn't have a show. There's other speakers hive more style and fire off Digger words, There's sorghum lipped Hue orators as sweet as cream and curds, •But In the race with Jerry they wouldn't get a heat, For he'd pull his high-tide trousers up and show his sockless'feot. I've seen the ballet In New York and ankles heat and trim, Where nymphs have skipped ami fairies danced all liberal In limb, Why they'd brliij? down a house composed ot stones, and sticks and stocks, But they wouldn't move a Kansas crowd like Jerry's want of sockh. • Though Kansas zephyrs howl and bite, he doesn't care a darn • Until tbe duty's taken off he scorns the aid of • yarn; He recks not ot the blizzards, he recks nut snow and isleet, He walks th& soil ot Kansas with free, mistock- ingedfeet. • ' I've heard at the Alliance ot some Roman son oi a gun Who was doing hla spring ploughing when he was asked to run For President; he said he would when he had sown his wheat; And just like Jerry Simpson, he'd no socks upon ' his feet. But prouder than a Roman he'll tread the marble hall And put his feet upon his desk where, they'll be , seen by all; And the people In the galleries they'll wonder and -they'll stare At the man who thinks Drotected socks won't do for him to wear. And if the Alliance puts a man In Mister Ingall's seat. I hope that Jerry Simpson will get therewith both leet; For pluck and lively hustling nowhere can he be beat, There'are no flies on Jerry more than socks upon his feet. THE POSfOFFICE.
