He sent David one of his printed speeches, ami received a. letter In reply, thanking him for it, and saying that it was the first speech he bad "read for years without the aid of a dictionary. Webster said he desired no greater compliment than to know that his language was so plain and simple that an unlettered man could understand him. And it was a compliment. I grant there nay be' minds so profound, so lofty in -conception, and so highly cultivated, that only music of the highest character can satisfy their desires. 1 do not envy Mich persons, nor would 1 deprive them of the pleas-rc they derive from such knowledge. I ouly plead for a small share of the music at concerts that some of us, less gifted, tan enjoy and appreciate. Give us some of thajrcums of music. Don't take everything in sight for the hungry experts. If we can't have cake, please pass the corn bread. I am glad that there are persons so The members of the C., C., C. & St. Mutual Insurance association held their annual meeting Wednesday evening. following a dinner at the Grand hotel at Indianapolis. at wh-i most of th members were present. At 8 p. they met in the hotel and listened to reports by J. Q Van Winkle, pres, (tent of the association, and by M. Horton, general secretary. The report of the latter showed that the membership numbered 910; during the ear there were 24 deaths, on which 21.877 benefits were paid to legal heirs of the deceased. In the 32 years the association has been organized there haa been disbursed in- death benefits $1164.439.15. President Van Winkle made a short address, which was followed by remarks by a number of the older members of the organization, the talks being largely reminiscent in character. President Ingalis cor triouted to (he association his usual sum $750, for which the members rt turned thanks. J. Q. Van Winkle was unanimously re-elected president and M. C. Horton geueral secretary. ' Only slight changes were made in the several committees. There were in attendant a number of the founders of theorganiza-tion, one being John Brunton. nmv chaplain of the Denver Rio Gramie. Every division of the Big Four sys-t mu was represented. At the annual meeting of the Big Four stockholders, . held at Cincinnati Wednesday. Alexander McDonald,, of Cincinnati; Janies Barnett, of Cleveland, to succeed themselves, and W. H. New man. of New York, president of the New York Central railroad to suc-eed George H. Farlow, of Boston, were elected directors for three years. Walter P. Bliss, of New York, was elected to fill the vacancy caused by the death of his brother, George Bliss. Subsidiary roads also elected directors. Mr. Farlow's resignation which was received and formally accepted, it is un- drstood, was tendered simply because he no longer has extensive holdings in the roliT. Seventy per cent, of the capital stock of the company was voted. 555,027 shares of prefeired and 210,190 of the common stock being represented. The hoard of directors will meet in New York next week to elect officers and transact other business. It is rather strang coincidence that the common stock of the ltig Foul- road should touch par for the first time in its history. on the day of the annual meet-iug. SP0RTING0RLD.

Why an American, horn under the stars and stripes, wants to appear before an assembly of his countrymen, and sing to them InFrehch, when not half a dozen of those present can understand him, Is as incomprehensible to me. as the fact that the audience will git quietly and allow him to do it! Seriously, we are needing simplicity in everyday life. Why employ the language of Lamartine; he commonly used nothing but bis. native tongue. Webster was gifted, and could use in flights or oratory, but the masses were stirred by his simple words. Jenny Lind, singing "Home, Sweet Home," at the present day, would be styled -an "old fogy. G.

To enable them to do this they should use something that will help the stomach do its work. Kodol Dyspepsia Cure is such a . preparation. It digests' f hat you eat and supplies the substances needed to build up the worn out digestive organs. Prof. J. Ivison, of Lonaconing, Md., say9: For thirteen years I suffered agony from dyspepsia and neuralgia of the stomach. I tried almost everything and doctors drugged me nearly to death with morphine, hut temporary relief was all I , could obtain till I was advised to use Kodol Dyspepsia Cube. - The first dose gave me relief. I bought my first bottle in March, 1900, and I have not had a single pain since. It has completely cured me. I cannot endorse it too highly. It cant help but do you good Prepared by E. O.

Among the wards of the nation are not only the Indians nmd Eskimos so generally known, hut also the 830 animals, small and large, which have been gathered into the National Zoological park at Washington. Judging from tiie recent rejiort issued hy the Smithsonian Institution, which lias charge of the park, the needs of these dumb dependents of the nation, which repre- siutliot only tiic auimals of the Vnit-ed States, but of other countries, are sometimes lost sight of in the press of business with which congress is occupied. This state of things is considered the more deplorable since the park collection is 1 icing constantly increased by valuable com riliut inns through American consuls aud is used by zoologists as vveij as by artists and animal students, notably hy such men as Charles It. Knight, J. M. (Beeson, L. A. Fuertes, , Ernest Setou-'Hu.mpsou, A. Itadelyffc I'ugmore and E. 1 Keller. S. P. Langley, seeritary of the Smith souiaii, says, for example, that among the Imperative needs of the pink are a suitable bird and reptile house, a house for small mammals ami a building fur the aquarium. The paik. he says, has the nucleus for an excellent collection of oquatie birds, but no suitable win kter quarters for them, no available bathing facilitiis, and as a consequence a fine group of flamingoes brought from Cuba was recently lost. The deatli rate among the parrots aud macaws is also larger t;an it would lie if they could he properly protected during the winter season. The reptiles of the paik are no letter off, according to the detailed ri poll of the superintendent. The rare and furious specimens of the giant tortoise from the Galapagos Mauds unhoused iu nu office room wholly ru-suitahle, w itli little sunlight and insufficient ventilation. The alligators are unreasonably crowded and often injure themselves . in consequence. With no room for tanks for otiier amphibious creatures no attempt can be made to preserve the A merit an crocodile, now in danger of disappearing, as has the buffalo, or to obtain any of the large sea turtles of the Atnerliau coai-t. The cato of the small mammals which are compelled to get along witli no outside yards or secluded breeding places lias resulted in complaints by visitors which the management linvi indorsed, although thenisi lvcs unable to remedy the evils without aid from congress. The appeal oftbe regents of the Smithsonian institution for more liberal appropriations seems to have more than a sentimental la-ix, since the report shows that the deaths of animals last year readied Kid, of which 87 were of birds aud reptiles. If this death rate is allowed 40 continue, the value nnd jx-rniatienoy of the national zoo is threatened. TO HARNESS CYCLONES. laa to I tills the Zephyrs Which Blun Across the 1-rslrles. TrofeSMir B. B. Britts of Riihland Contir, Wis., lias at rived in Omaha with a mysterious machine which ho says will take power from the wind and store it in such a manner that it may lie used at will. He maintains that he can bridle a slight breeze or a cyclone and convert its power to the use of man. Omaha capitalists have been asked to invest in a plant for the manufacture of Britts strange machine. The inventor guards his secret with great care, hut soys that lie will lx? in a position to make a public demonstration of the cyclone harnessing machine in a short time.

The new ameer of eghanistan, Unbi-huli.ih Khan, is at present one of the leading characters ou tiie stage of rulers Owing to the fact that his accession to his, father's throne may lie marked by war should the government of the czar deem the time opportune to strike a 'blow at Great Britain through her ally. The personal troubles of Habibnllah also invest him with added interest. The uew ameer is the son of his father's third wife, who. although legally married, was looked down upon Tor tiie reason that she was formerly nothing hut a slave and was brought to Kabul in the ntiune of the ameer's first wife, who was her owner. Naturally there was considerable resentment in the royal household when the old amt-pr announced that the son of this slave wife would be his heir, and as a result several attempts were made 011 Jlabiiiulluh's life. When the old ruler died. Haiiibnllah'a brothers took flight, nnd the new ameer HABinriXAI! EUAN. at onee sent forces after them to capture them or to prevent their ri turn urn-aught. Every one concedes that the new ruler's throne i in danger. The czar wards to putiu loner Isluk Khan, a son of Azim, the roil of the great Ameer Iki-d Mix hammed. Anoihcoclaimant is the infant Mohammed tbear, sou of the queen of the harem, who Is of royal Mood. The present ameer has already had opportunity of showing that he is a strong ruler, for he actually occupied the throne for two years while his father was in other pn'rts of the empire xuppres-ing a rebellion lid by I-l-.ak Khan. Not the niei-t renow red of dead and gone ameers cculd Lave ruled wilh more force and sagacity thin he did then. Die- of. t'r attempts made on his life was by pm-nu. The dnigs adminis'ered to hiu-. whie not proving fatal, so ilToct-ed his nerves as to make bint an incurable stammerer. He has for this naren Teen nga.ded with additiouui scorn by his royal n l.itives, being ni kuameil "The Stammerer. Now- that he is ameer tin re is more than a probability that he will do tome weeding -la the ranks of -those who vm re pleased to tag him with this epilhit. What will further lead to make things uncomfortable for Afghanistan's potentate Is the fact that he is thoroughly hated by his people, not so much on his own neunmt as hy reason of a prophecy running, Allah 11 Allah, A Mur Rahman is the last of tlit ameers!
