Bow • Soft-Hearted Woman's Fntieno* Cam* to an End. For the purpose of aiding in the amusement of hi> numerous guests, the tost of a handsome siummer bouse not : from Chicago purchased a donkey. _ j Idea -was that the ladies would be •bl; io extract any amount of fun out • ST trying* to ride the patient animal. Hj was oa nice a little donkey as could • bB'iannd anywhere, but he had the pc- eullar traits of his race. When hi-mode bt; hi» mind to stand still there waa ho earthly power that could persuade him to change it. There were tiorses and ponies and .every thing on, the place that one could -wish to drive, but when there is a donkey it would seem tlhat there could be no reason why he should not be used occasionally. So the other night the host harnessed the long-cared •teed Into a donkey cart and started to 'drive him out Into the road. He went 'til right until he arrived opposite the piazza, where he. stopped, and, beyond •pl&wlveJy waving one ear, refused to move. The driver was tender-hearted, but at'the end of a series of gentle, per- gtaaive requests to move, the walloping began. There waa a chorus from .the ptsEza, where there was a charming asembJoge of ladies. . "Oh, don't," "Poor'little fellow," "You'll hurt him," ."Try a little coaxing." Then the driver, With contracted.brows, Jumped to the 'ground, and remarked that if there was 'anyone on that piazza who understood 'coaxing a donkey, he would like losee tlm or her try. The challenge was nc- cept«d. A young, woman wlio might have been a Hebe or a Venus, or any- thlng which signifies everything lova- Wo, tender and womanly, arose. She drove more firmly Into, her fluffy locka 'the jeweled dagger which held in place •the mass 'of chiffon nrid feaUiers .she called a hat. She gathered up the laces ! and ribbonsof her skirts, and descended to the ground. Then began a solo: . ; "Poor old boy," "Good fellow," "Nice old aweetheart," "Come along," "That's it," "Come : m-m- along," "Come-along," |"Como, I sayi" "You wretc-h-cd old lb«astl" -The last part of It came out 'in jerks, because with each word there Was a tug at the bridle. Then there was [• flash of a white hand In, the masses ot chiffon-feathery millinery;' another 'flash of a jeweled dagger, and a great Juproar of laughter, from the piazza.- iThttt lovely, tender, sympathetic woman was stabbing that tender donkey with her hatpin. There isn't any don- : key In that establishment now.—Chi- 'cagb Chronicle. , ., "FLIRTATION WALK." •he (aw It, But Her Visit'Wn« F|T« Yean Too Late. One of the guests nt the West Pom*, .ball the other evening was a lieuten- 'ant's wife who hod nevr.r been there. . ^before. Five years ago she married a [West Point man, and, from, heaxsay, • the was familiar wiii-every stick and • atone about tho place. ,But.lt wns.the 'first time she had set foot upon-West , 'Eblnt soil. She was, therefore, highly ' ^delighted at- this first experience. • Her enthusiasm knew no bounds, and her v husband declared her .to be tEe worso West Point struck girl "he hod ever seen. .

Utterly 3eaf to my entreaties and to all sentimental associations, my prosaic better . half forjged ajieed as if he were taking part In a walking match. We reached the end of the walk, warm, tired and breathless. 'Well, that's over,' re marked my unrbmnntic spouse, as he mopped his brow. 'Whero do.you want to go now, Polly?' 'Nowhere, 1 I replied, stiffly; 'I want to sit right down and weep, because our visit to 'Flirtation walk' was just five yenrs too late!'" —N.Y. Sun. REPRODUCED IN OREGON. The Red Sea Miracle Often Been In Link Hirer. • It is a well-known fact thu.t at certain times of the year Link river, n Bfcrenm o- mile and a quarter long, which connects the gren t wVter systems above and below this point, becomes almost dry, says tho Klamath Falls Express. This state of affairs, hiowcvcr, losts.'as n rule, but a few hours, during which time people nave been Itnown to walk across the rivci, 300 feet wide, without getting, their feet wet. The bottom of the river'has been dug Out in many places by the action of. the water, forming large potholes, and when the river becomes dry these boles ore filled with trout, which are left stranded. At such times it is a common occurrence to see men aad boys knocking the fish on the head with clubs, aoid in this'way secure many a good meal. .There are many traditions regarding this phebomenon among the Indians .here, but tho real cause of the low wo- ter in the river is the action of the wind. Tho course, of the stream is southeast, and the high winds which, prevail In the .spring and fall oJe from the eouUi, and blow up the river. The outlet f rora the upper lake being small, the force of tlhc wind keeps tibe water buck in the big lake, causing the river, to become very low. • .' •' : WM Looking for a Queen. . A son of tho marquis of Salisbury is much interested in bee _farming, and this very mild hobby resulted in the, wildest kind of excitement in the neighborhood of Hatfleld recently. It all came'about in thla manner: Young. Cecil, finding one of his hives queen- less, sent an order to 'Welwyn, the nearest-town to Hatfleld, for a Carai- olan queen—a famous Italian bee-r-nnd asked.to be informed of the probable time of its arrival. The bee dealer sent off the bee by the next train and wired: "The queen will arrive by 3:40'this afternoon." When Lorddecil reached'the station to take possession of-his ibee' he found the place thronged. -;The telegraph clerk had interpreted .the tele,-< gram that her majesty was;'paying-a sudden' vlslt to Hatfleldv nnd",. being un-. able to keep 1 such .interesting news''.to himself, the information 'spread, 'llko' wildfire. ,.

Investors hero that it might not yet-be the best time to buy. Men of more confidence put up prices a little on Tuesday ar.d still more on Thursday, so that the week closed with an advance averaging 35 cents per share for railroads and J1.S2 for trusts.

In fact, wheat rose about one- half cent, but again declined, closing only a fraction higher for the week! Corn declined throughout the week, closing over a cent lower. Cotton advanced a sixteenth because of continued reports of Injury. : "Iron production .was reduced 20,764 tons weekly in July and has'.been further reduced since August 1, while unsold stocks Increased S6.192 tons-In-July. 'The stoppage of 'a large share of the Connellsvllla coke works and of many lake Iron mines Is fair Indication that the two combinations do not beliove anything, could be gained by reducing the prices of materials, end the main difficulty Is the obviously extreme narrowness of demand for finished products,": which Is'so small that ..most transactions are at some concessions; even from the current low prices. r "The boot and shoe Industry IB approach- Ing the and of orders at hand, and gradual, advances In tho prices asked tend to the restriction of new orders.
