Chaunccy M. Depew, L. L. D., A. M., P. HI., Ph. D., D. D., S. T, D.," and a number of other initials of college degrees. Then the letter proper ran :is follows: "Dear and Most Honored Sir: I have read of your after-dinner speeches, and while it has never been my good for. trine to listen to your eloquence, I have delighted in such published reports of your utterances as I have been able to secure. ••So mush have they impressed me that I have but one great wish. It is to listen to the speech you—" "Here 1 reached thcend*»f the page," said Dr. Depew. "There were two dinners on my list at the time, and I supposed the writer wanted to find out from mo how he could hear the speeches, or one of them. 1 turned tho page over, full of a charitable wish to accede to his request, and read: •• -—would make after a dinner in your railway restaurant at Pough- kccpsio.' "That man had evidently eaten a dinner in the New York Central restaurant, and he probably did not regard it as a Lelshazzar feast." COVER?'OR McKwLEV has quieted the political goS;-ipa-on one point b> announcing- that be IB not a cuodjdaie for tbe Dolttd States Senate. He said: "Tne talk about -my being a candidate at this time fnr the OaUi d States Senate is unwarranted, and as far as I am concerned, meaningless, I a.m not a candidate for the Senate, and if I were I would not conceal tbe fact, but would very frankly state my position to the public and RO Into the contest In an opeo and direct manner." ] )To-.T Senator Hansom IV an Klcil. ' A good story was then told on Senator Matt Ransom, of North Carolina. The senator went aboard a ferryboat for an hour's ride on the Potomac to Alexandria and back again. Just after he seated himself on the forward part : of the upper deck to catch the breezes 1 an Italian with an accordion began playing "Daisy Bell." Now, there is nothing the senator hates worse than that tune, and the accordion was very whecxy and asthmatic. Nobody present knew the senator, but everybody noticed him stop nervously to the Italian and ask how much he would take-'to quit. Twi;nty-0vo cents was agreed upon and paid. The senator resumed • his seat, when a little Italian boy came upon the scene with a smaller accordion and began playing "Maggie Murphy's Home." Everybody smiled, but the senator silently smoked his cigar. Just as the boat ncared Alexandria the little boy commenced "Daisy Bell," and Matt Ransom gave up another silver quarter. De will never take another ride on a Potomac ferry. Conquest o f n John. Willis Sweet, of Idaho, had an experience with a Washington cab-driver which illustrated the grasping disposition of our jehus. and the combative disposition of the statesman from the land of gold, silver and sage brash.

The great polivieal orator, Chaunccy Depcw, was bubbling over with stories. Senator Vest remarked: "Drop a dinner into ChaMepy Depew and then hear the stories gurgle forth." Speaking of queer letters which prominent men receive from all sorts of people, Dr. Depew said that on one occasion when he entered his railroad office HON. CUACNOEY M. !>EI'EW. ner.

Col. i;o!i LoU. P.U TtM'.lpiT. George r,o;:kwood. for many yenrs chief clerk of the interior department, said that soon after the civil war Col. Bob Ingersoll was traveling in Great Britain, and was assailed by a pompous Englishman who assumed to know all about America. lie talked incessantly, and the other people in the railway car were greatly amused with the witty sallies of Ingersoll. as he occasionally "rattled" the self-opinionated Britisher, At last, coming to the emancipation proclamation, the rod-faced old fellow denounced the freedom of theslaves.and Ingersoll scntcntiously defended that, action. Growing very angry, the Brit- isher used the old argument: "You wouldn't let yoor daughter marry a nigger, would you?" "Not if I could prevent it," said Ingersoll. "Nor an Englishman either." Justice Lamtir'rt clovrr Device. An employe of the supreme court told a s.ory concerning the late Associate Justice Latnar, who was exceedingly absent-minded and habitually forgetful of everything and everybody but his friends,' For years he had sufl>rod untold afflictions from constantly mislaying his eyeglasses, and even his suspenders. One day, however, he met a friend, and with beaming face and kindling eye, confided to him the fact that his troubles were at on end. "I'low did you manage it?" was the inquiry. "Oh, I had a pair of eyeglasses sewed onto everyone of ray vests and a pair of Euspendcrs to every pair of trousers." Tol<l at; Voorhccs 1 F-ipcnno. Senator Voorhccs was the subject of ajlu'n with a few stitches of ridicule ia it. The big senator accompanied a delegation of constituents to the whitu house to urge the appointment of a political friend to a prominent office. The regular programme was pursued. Letters and telegrams poured into the white house from every county in Indiana, urging the appointment. Then, as a mauler stroke, a delegation of big local politicians came on here, and Senator Voorhccs took them to see President Cleveland. Each man had his say, and then the senator delivered an oration in behalf of the candidate. Mr. Cleveland sat quietly and heard every statement, and listened with groat interest to all the senator was saying. The visitors were satisfied that their case was won, when the president quietly remarked: ••Senator Voorhee-s, I can understand now why you enjoy so great a reputation as .a jury lawyer; but 1 have no intention of appointing your mart." I'.ovf n r;ithor-ln-JLavr U'ns Won. Senator Uerry, of Arkansas, had a hard time, and spent as many years winning his father-in-law as the patriarch Jacob spent in securing the wife of his love. Uc was only sixteen years of age when he wont into the confederate army, and before his eighteenth birthday he left a leg on Ibe battlefield. He was then an ignorant, crippled country boy, but ambitious. He educated himself, became a schoolteacher, moved to Arkansas, studied law, commenced work in his profession, fell in love, and was married. The girl of his choice loved him, but her father would not let her marry the one-legged young man. Then lierry stole his bride from a second-stcry window, and her father declared he would never forgive him. Berry was elected to the legislature, and began to be known as a wonderful orator, but his father-in- law would not forgive him nor recognize him. Children were born, and their "grandpa" invited his daughter and the little ones to his house, but his 60D-in-law .never. Finally, when he became circuit judge, the "old man" frequently spoke o? him as "my son-in- law, Judge Berry," but never spoke to him. In K3S-2 his friends brought him out for governor, tie was nominated by acclamation and elected by 40,000 majority. Then the "old man" came j down from his high horse and wrote as : follows: ' ' "My daughter was a better judge of men than i. Forgive me, and during your administration, whenever you want to slip away from the capital to enjoy a brief respite from the cares of state. I do not invite, but bog you, to make njy country bouse your home." J His election to the scnatorship fol- ; lowed, and "they lived happy ever after- ; wards." The life storr of Senator Cor- . rv would make a volume of romance ia real life if it were written in detail, containing all of his ambitions and their gradual realizations. SJ;:TH D.

NEW YORK. NEPTUNE HELD HIS JOS. RUDELY SHATTERED. Convinced Ilin Muster That TLcro Must Do Twi> Turtles to it Oischnrs:?. Not long after the war old Neptune Burgess drifted up in Illinois frnm his plantation home in the south, and was so well satisfied with "God's country," as he was pleased to term it, that he settled permanently in McLean county, becoming a fixture upon the farm of Ezra -Miles, a well-to-do planter. Neptnnc was gray-haired and lazy when he bargained for this pln.cc, and time did not improve his vahio as a Servant. He was good naturcd, faithful after his fashion, and apparently much attached to Mr. Miles, but nothing could persuade him to imitate the bee in industry. One year passed nnd nnothnr, and still Noptunc remained, while his contentment was a real comfort to behold. Nothing in the world troubled him except a delay in serving his men Is. mid as this rarely happened his serenity practiciillj 1 remained unbroken. The negro was coal black when ho first entered Mr. Miles" home, and he eccmod to Uikc on deeper shades as his hair whitened. But. the latter wns the only sign he gave of advancing ajre. lie was thin. tall, erect and active— when moving toward the house at dinner time. U:iy after day. though, he became lazier: yet there were those who. knew him that doclnrccl he had reached the lowest possible descending point in the first year. Mr. Miles even, who was ouu of the most forbearing men in the world, could finally stand it no longer and resolved on dr;u,tric measures. Coming up with the darky in the barn when ho should have been out in the field, he said sternly: "Sec here, Ncp, you ;;rc not worth your salt. You are discharged. Get yourself oil at once." The old nefrro, who had been leaning out of a vin£ow looking dreamily upon the landscape, now turned about, regarded Mr. Miles half curiously for a moment, and then shook his head negatively. "Kain 1 4° it, Marss Ezry. It tccks two ter meek er barg'in, "n' I ain* er gwine ter fling erwny er job I's hilt nigh enter twenty year, comin' nux' JinDerwerry. I iaiks dc place mighty well, 'n' reckons I'D stay ontwell t dies." Dere Neptune turned to go away, having rejected what he consid- j cred an undesirable proposition. "Come ,"back here," cried Mr. Miles, anyrilv. "If you talk to me that way I'll thrash you." The negro halted, moved half about, nnd answered, reflective] y: "Dat you kin do, Marse Ezry, bekase it on't tecks one ter do the lammin'; but it sho'ly do tek two ter meek a bargain, 'n' I ain't sich cr.blame fool's ter frow up dis cr place." And stay old Neptune did to the end of his days, persuaded to the last that the right of the employe to remain was as potent as that of the'' employer to discharge.—Chicago Tribune.

"Why is it that you girls seem to think so much more of the rncn who come in here than you do of the women?" asked the man with an interroga-. lion point in his mind. "Is it because the men are rjore agrcnable?" "Oh! no." replied the saleslady, with a toss of her head. "It is because the men arc such ninnies that they don't know, what things are worth.
