Novel and Instructive Features of the Great National Convention - Prairie Schooners Will be Seen 1 1 Abundance A Popular 1'opullst Delegate. The most extraordinary spectacle in the history of great national conventions will be witnessed this year in connection with the gathering of the leaders of the democracy at Kansas City. A great number of the delegates to the convention, instead of going there in Pullman sleeping cars, or even in the ordinary day coaches, will start for Kansas City many days or weeks beforehand, and slowly wend their way across the country in old-fashioned "prairie schooners." Just as the "Forty-niners" going to California after the discovery of gold fitted out wagons with beds, stoves and every road necessity, so these delegates to the Kansas City Convention will stream across the prairie in canvas-covered wagons, many bearing on their sides the legend "16 to 1." Never before have delegates to a great party gathering 4 for the nomination of a Presidential candidate gone to the meeting place in such primitive stylet as this. Andrew Jackson was nominated at a convention where there was a considerable affectation of simplicity but little real poverty. Many of the delegates rode there on horseback. But these were gentlemen riding blooded animals, carrying silver flasks of old One of the Delegates. whiskey, and. many of them with "money to burn" at the wayside inns where they stopped and indulged in. games of chance. Far different are the men now preparing "prairie schooners" in Missouri, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, Colorado and Arkansas. They are determined to show the convention what real democracy is, according to their light. One of the schemes for doing this is to camp out in Kansas City and live in the "prairie schooner" instead of in the hotels during the convention. One Western leader has stated that this will be a stronger protest against plutocracy than any of the speeches made at the convention, and that in seeing these hardy sons of toil actually living on ten cents a day, too poor even to stop at a hotel, although representing thousands of taxpayers, the Eastern delegates will have forcibly brought home to them who are really ."the people." It is likewise estimated that, aside from the delegates from all over the) neighboring country who will flock to the convention in "prairie schooners," many hundred of spectators will likewise adopt this extraordinary means of visiting the city. Of course, the great reason why nothing like this has ever before been witnessed is that this year, for the first time in history, a National Convention of one of the two great parties will be held west of the Mississippi. It would have been impossible for "prairie schooner" delegates to go to the conventions at St. Louis, Chicago or Cincinnati. Many people in "bleeding Kansas" and the adjoining States and Territories are now rejoicing at the opportunity presented to them of giving "the East" a practical object lesson in modern local conditions. Short Grass Couutry. There is in Western Kansas what is known as the "short, grass country," so called from the short curly buffalo grass that grows here. This is the country of draughts, hot winds, deserted towns and burst booms. If a man: can live in the "short grass country" he is sturdy indeed. Some men do live in it, and prosper in a way, and thesa will be part of the "prairie schooner" delegation. Conditions are exceedingly hard in the "short grass country" and men become accustomed to hard fare and harder . journeys. A silver dollar looks pretty big out there, and a man will endure considerable hardship before he will spend one for purely physical comfort. These people are accustomed to long wagon journeys, and make them with less discomfort than many a city man would experience in a day coach on a slow train. For years they have been accustomed to go about the country from one State to another, br from county to county, as crops failed or seasons were bad. They loaded their possessions into wagons and "trekked" across the prairies. When they found a new locality that suited IB em they hired a farm, planted their seed and worked the farm until another bad crop came. Then they packed again and moved on. These in the West are called "movers." "Moving" has become a habit with them. Many of the men who have become more or less prominent in Oklahoma politics went there from Kansas in a "mover's wagon," as the modern "prairie schooner" Is called in that country. Arkansas and Southern Missourians the Ozark mountain folk rude, proud, and as full of fight and radical views as their mountain brethren of Kentucky or the Carolinas,' are famous "movers" also, and their religion is "free silver." The farmer delegates of Colorado and Western Nebraska may have "moved" at some time from Kansas, Oklahoma or Ar Ji. : 0 Amusing Anecdotes, interviews, Sketches, Etc. . jjf .0 numun ivumre. n kansas, flitting until they found a congenial soil and prosperity. These folks used to travelling the roads in wagons, will be the "prairie schooner" delegates and visitors. - Not all too Poor to Buy Tickets, It is not to be supposed that all; those who journey to Kansas City in July in prairie schooners are too poor to buy railroad tickets and pay hotel) bills. Many of them will be prosperous farmers and merchants the political leaders in the farming districts of the new country. They will travel to the convention in wagons, camping by the roadside, and going from their camps in the city to their seats in the convention to show the world at large, and the delegates from the East in particular, that they are true exponents of Jeffersonian democracy and simplicity. They will, they say, be a living protest against college graduates, cigarettes, Pullman cars and plutocracy. The "prairie schooner" is a curious yet simple vehicle, and it all depends upon the ingentrity and taste of the owner how comfortable it may be. It is. made of an ordinary farm wagon fitted with oak bows, over which a "wagon cloth" of canvas is stretched. If the owner is rich enough or sufficiently ingenious Jie Will fit up the interior with bunks, a "grub box,' a looking-glass and many other conveniences. In the wagon will be a sheet iron stove, with as many iron and tin cooking utensils as are necessary for the simple cuisine of the individual or party. These wagons will likely be provisioned on the farm with "home cured side meat," potatoes and corn meal, sufficient to last until the convention is over and home is reached once more. Thus the cost of the journey will be practically nothing. From Oklahoma to Kansas City is about three hundred miles. Railroad passenger rates are three cents a mile in that country, and it is not likely that they will be reduced. Thus the Oklahoma delegate or visitor coming a distance of three hundred miles would have to spend about $20 for his passage and almost as much as that in hotel bills in Kansas City. If he goes by wagon he can take his family along without any additional cost. He and his family and team will consume no more food on the road than they would at home. The journey to Kansas City will consume ten or twelve days. A farm team can make about twenty-five miles a day for ten days on theslevel prairie roads, and after a rest of three or four days in Kansas City be ready to go the same gait again on the return trip. A journey by wagon from the adjoining States to Kansas City will be regarded much in the light of a picnic by these people. Wagon journeying is a popular way of spending the summer vacation in the West. Parties go from Kansas City down into Arkansas, Oklahoma or the Indian Territory in wagons fitted for the purpose, and often travel one thousand miles before their holiday is ended. Soniethiug of a ricuic. The "prairie schooner" delegates will jog along the roads comfortably, meeting with their kind at cross roads and camping in parties by the roadside at night. When they stop for the nigh.1 they will set up their sheet iron stoves out of doors and cook their simple food, rotl up in their blankets when dark comes and get under way again, at sunrise. But it will be a hot and dusty journey along the shadeless prairie roads, and the "prairie schooner" delegates will doubtless be very glad to go into camp for a few days when the reach the convention city. In Kansas City these wanderers will go into camp on the vacant lots near the convention hall. In the city they will sleep in their wagons, but cook out of doors in true camp style, and it is possible that they will be more comfortable than their brethren in the hot and crowded hotels. A feature of the parades in Kansas City during the convention will be a section composed of "prairie schooners," with banners on their sides, bearing democratic slogans of more or less intensity. This will arouse the enthusiasm of the" Westerners and amaze the Eastern men. , One of the most remarkable delegates to a National Convention is the Westchester county (New York) populist representative, Captain George W. Lloyd. Captain Lloyd originally came from Alabama, and during the war he was known in New Rochelle as "the rebel." In 1864 he disappeared, and it was not until after the war that it was learned that he had been a spy in the Confederate army. He returned to New Rochelle when the war was over, badly-wonnded. In spite of the fact that Captain Lloyd was a Confederate spy, he is now an ardent American. He is one of the Commissioners of Hudson Park, in New Rochelle, and has erected a flagstaff and placed a cannort there, which he fires on all national holidays. He is a Boer sympathizer, and during the Cuban revolution he sold Cuban coffee to aid the Cuban cause. Captain Lloyd ismore than eighty years old, but extremely vigorous and energetic. In him the East will furnish quite as picturesque a character as a convention delegate as any that will come out of the West. When he passed through New Rochelle on his way to the convention he was dressed in a long linen duster and his head was covered with a big straw hat with the legend, "16 to 1," painted on the front. ' 1F TRIALS BY JURYMEN. Chapter of Anuslng Stories of the "Go d Men and True." Although juries in their collective capacity seem to be the embodiment of common sense, taken Individually they frequently behave in the strangest manner. The writer remembers a case In which the Judge when he came to sum up noticed that one of the jurymen was missing. Just as a search was being instituted for the delinquent a juror arose and said: "My lord, the gentleman has a sick daughter whose case Is to be diagnosed at 8 o'clock to-day by a celebrated specialist. Fearing that you would not give him permission, he left the box soon after the court resumed, leaving his verdict with me." The judge fell back on hearing this, and it was quite a minute before he recovered his speech. The counsel of course waxed very merry; they had no reason for anger, as the adjournment of the case meant more fees. The Judge next morning fined the absentee $100, which he could very well afford to pay, as he was living In a house rated at $1,000 a year. Special Juries, because they live In (houses rated at not less than $250 a year in Middlesex, raised to $500 for towns containing less than 20,000 Inhabitants, are supposed to possess special qualifications for trying cases Involving technical and intricate Issues. It may be so. although personally most people would fail to see why the tenant of a house rated at $150 a year should not be equally as intelligent aa the gentleman who happens to live in a $250 dwelling. One thing, however, is clear: Common Jurymen, although they are not without weaknesses, are seldom guilty of what might be called "downright foolishness." Not long ago a special juryman, toward the conclusion of a long trial, was taken so ill that, after adjourning .he case for a day, the judge directed a fresh Juror to be sworn. Tt will scarcely be believed that this juryman a few minutes after he had entered the box, prompted by his colleagues, rose and said: "My lord, as I have been In court all through the trial" which was not true "and listened attentively to all the evidence, Is It necessary that we should have It all over again?" "Yes," replied the Judge, "but you were not on oath 'to well and truly try' when the evidence was first given." On one of these occasions a juryman so lost his temper as to audibly swear. The writer will never forget the delicious way In which Lord Coleridge, who was the Judge, and who always rose to the level of such occasions, said: "The tropical fervor of such language is so calculated to Impair that cool judicial atmosphere so necessary for the proper Administration of the law that, as a punishment for tampering with the legal temperature, I must fine you $25." In an Instant the hand of every other juryman was in his pocket, and while his lordship (who was too good natured to notice) bent over his notes and smiled, the money was subscribed and the fine paid. " If the retrial of a case, through the indisposition of a Juror, annoys the "twelve good men" It absolutely terrifies the witnesses. They are afraid lest the second edition of their evidence sfiould not correspond with their first. The awe-stricken manner In which they creep inlo the witness box, evidently under the impression that any trifling discrepancy will be magnified into an absolute contradiction, la ludicrous in the extreme. ' It is on these occasions that the workingman juror shines. While a special jury would probably take no pains to conceal their Indifference, regarding the whole affair as an "awful bore," "the twelve thirty-pounders," to use the words of the late Sir Frank Lockwood, "are all the time on the flounce." The writer calls tp mind an instance in which such copious tears were shed by the plaintiff who was in wpe:3, Whenever the name of her late husband was mentioned, that at last the judge testily inquired: "How long has your husband been dead?" "Twelve months," was the faltering reply. "That's not true, my lord," said a voice in court. "He's been dead seven years." The bereaved lady little thought, that, her failure to contradict this assertion was probably one of the reasons why she lost the case. Sir Edward Clarke once told the writer that a juror at the conclusion of a case went to him and said. ' T should' have liked to have given you a verdict, Sir Edward, but the facts were too strong." A jury box seems also to be a rare p!?e for forming friendships. The writer has frequently seen jurymen who at the opening of the case were all perfect, strangers to each other go off arm in arm at its conclusion to dine together. London Mail. Floors and .Stories. Now Aristophanes, also, had the curious notion that just because he had written successful comedies he could be funny. "You write in the attic," he mused, palpably struggling to remain calm. "Why not on the ground floor?" "That," replied Demosthenes, whose great phrophetic soul enabled him aptly to quote words as yet unspoken, "is another story?" The discussion of Greek architecture and dialect thus opened up will, however, be deferred. Detroit Journal. ' : I : Why He T.nngrlied. The editor laughed heartily. "That must be funny," began the humorist, sudden hope rising in his breast. "It is. The idea of your coming here and palming the likes of this off on me as a joke!" Syracuse Herald. .

At druggist AN ACT OF TENDER SYMPATHY. ' Which Seat On Yrasg Man to Cuba with a Lighter Heart. A recent traveller to Spain, writing in Blackwood's Magazine, describee a touching scene witnessed at the departure of a regiment for Cuba. All day long there had been heard the measured tread of soldiers, marching through the streets; all day long gaily bedecked boats had been passing to and from the vessel that was to take them to Havana. The twilight had begun to deepen when the correspondent saw "a start? ling and pretty sight" the impetuous action of a portly, good-looking and well-dressed lady, who aoticed a young soldier walking dejecttdly along down the pier in his travelling gray, with- a knapsack strapped over his shoulders. - All the rest ot the men had friends, their novias, mothers, relatives, and made the usual gallant effort to look elated and full of hope. This lad had no one, and it might be devined that he was carrying a desolate heart overseas. -.-'. The handsome woman burst from her group of friends, took the boy's hand and said: "My son has already gone to Cuba. He is in the regiment of Andalusia and sailed two months ago. You may meet him, Pepe G.; take this kiss to him." She leaned and kissed his cheek. An English boy would have shown awkwardness, but these graceful Southerners are never at a-loss for a pretty gesture and a prettier word. The boy flushed with pleasure, and still holding the lady's .hand, said, with quite a natural gallantry, without smirk or silly smile. "And may I not take one for myself as well, Senora?" The lady reddened, laughed a little nervously, and bent and kissed him again, to the frantic applause of soldiers and civilians, while the boy walked on braced and happy. A Conscientious Ttnrttir. A good true story is told of a Pan Francisco woman and a doctor with a conscience. The doctor performed a successful operation for a rich woman, and when asked for his bill, presented one for $50. The lady smiled and said, "Do you consider that a reasonable charge, considering my circumstances?" The doctor replied: "That is my charge for that operation; your circumstances have nothing to do with it" The lady drew a check for $500, and presented it to him. He handed it back, Baying: "I cannot accept this. My charge for that operation is $50.", "Very well," the lady replied. "Keep the check, and put the balance to my credit." Some months after, Bhe received a lengthy Itemized bill, upon which were entered charges for treatment of various kinds, rendered to all sorts of odds and ends of humanity, male and female, black and white, who had been mended at her expense. She was so delighted at it that she immediately placed -another check for $500 to her credit on the same terms, and it is now being ' earned in the same way. . i j Altogether too Practical.
