THE KKPUBLtCAK, WJBJWjfigDAY, ALGONA, IOWA, MARCH 80, 1892, HE SMOKED BY PEOXY, >HOW UNCLE IRA TRIPP, OF SCRANTON, STOPPED SMOKING. Bis Phyilulan Ordered Him to Givo irp Consuming Twenty-fivo Cigars n I>ny. So the Old Man Hired a Smoker ho Ulnu •the Odor of the Weed Into Ills fane '"Uncle Ira Tripp, of Scranton/' said ;j former resident of Scran ton, now of this city, "was for years a familiar figure down town in New York, when the <>M Merchants' hotel \vus in existence iii 'Corthindt street. His tall, erect form his hmuonso flowing beard, white as snow, and, moro than nil, tho peculiar manner in which ho enjoyed his cig;tr. •attracted attention to him at once. "When Bill Schenck gave tip l!u» Merchants' and took the Westniinst.i-r. up town, Undo Ira became jttst as striking a figure in that part of tho city, un his virfits to Now York. He was one of the oldest and richest individual coal operators in the Laekawauuu, valley, Iii* father being ono of the pioneers of the region, and .settled on land that, when >coal was discovered, proved to be in tin- richest part of the anthracite belt. "Thirty years ago Ira Tripp, from one of the ruggedest of men, had gradually fallen into poor health. His physician told him that he was slowly dying from nicotine poisoning, aud that unless he gave up smoking his end was not far off. For years ho had smoked daily from twenty to twenty-five of the strongest imported cigars he could buy, and it was supposed that he was so wedded to the , habit that it would be an impossibility for him to break it. "But he did break it, and broke it square off, too, so far as smoking cigars himself was concerned; but he continued to enjoy his smoke right along, after a novel plan of his own. He bought the same kind of cigars he had always smoked, and then hired a man to accoiu pany him wherever he went, smoke the cigars and blow every puff of the fragrant vapor into his face, so that he could inhale it. SECONDHAND SMOKE. "It wasn't long before Ira declared that he got just as much enjoyment out of his sinoke at secondhand as he ever did •when he was pulling away at his Perfectos himself. He had hard work, though, to get smokers who were willing or able to consume a couple of dozen strong cigars, one quickly following the other, in the course of a day and evening, and at the same time be companions agreeable to him. Two resigned after a few months' trial, one was discharged on the spot for inhaling the smoke before puffing it into the face of the gentleman for whose benefit and not his own pleasure he was smoking, and two died in the service. "It was not until about fifteen years ago that Uncle Ira got a man that suited him exactly, and that was his colored man, John, who filled the bill in every respect, and became the old man's constant attendant and smoker, For all J know John was smoking for him up to the day he died. "Some years ago, when Bill Schenck was still running the old Merchants', Uncle Ira was a guest there and of •>course had John along. At that time Karl Rase, a well known newspaper .man of that day, since dead, was an -habitue of the Merchants', and he and Uncle Ira got well acquain -d. Karl suited Ira so well that he was content to let him rest John for hours at a stretch in doing the proxy smoking, a task which was most agreeable to the journalist, as he was a lover of the weed. "One day Uncle Ira had business up town and he asked Karl to accompany him and do the smoking, and of course Karl went with him. They got on the front platform of a Sixth avenue car at Broadway and Vesey street, and Karl lit a cigar. As the car trundled along he kept puffing the smoke into Ira's face arid Ira Ktood with his back against the end of the car enjoying the cigar with silent . satisfaction. AN INDIGNANT WOMAN.

" 'An she was going to One Hundred and Fifty-fifth street!' said the conductor, which made Uncle Ira roar again, as he handed Karl a fresh Perfecto. That incident ever after was the old man's favorite anecdote." — New York Suu. VVhtre Crystals Are Made. At Hot Springs, Ark., clear rolled pebbled from the Washita river are- sold in quantities, being more highly prized thao the ordinary rock crystals. The demand for them is so great that the inhabitants thereabouts have learned to produce them artificially by putting a number of crystals iu a box ana keeping them revolving for a lew tiays by water Star. SCENES AT TH£ PASTEUR INSTlf UTE, ftotv the Patients Act While Receiving the Two Inoculations. Everything being prepared, and the doctor having taken his seat, the patients were called in, one after the other, the children being allowed to be accompanied by their parents. The sight of the delicate little syringe with its needlelike point has an effect on most of the patients as they approach aud present themselves, but they have, no time to give way to reflection, and the puncture is over almost before they feel tho pain. Children, of course, squeal before as well as after, but they soon forget it. There was one exception, which aroused the admiration of both the doctor and his assistants, little as they ;u« accustomed to display their feelings, it was that of a fair haired, well dres.^eJ girl of six or seven years. "Now, iniri;! you, bo a good girl, and don't make tho doctor cross," said her father. "Oh, i:u, papa, I will show you that I am abi» girl now." Aud so she did. She underwent two punctures without so much as a wince, aud then kissed the doctor, cay- ing, "Merci, mon bon petit medecin." A young lady from Portugal was a!:-:o courageous, and even smiled as the doctor applied the syringe firmly but l:-:i- derly; she likewise expressed her grali- tudo, and her broken French seemed to make it all the more touching. All the ladies, however, were not such good patients. Oue, a stout person from the country, kicked and shrieked as if s;;.? were being killed. Another half fainted as the syringe pricked her. But these were exceptional cases, and the majority of the women behaved themselves remarkably well. The men were naturally bound to be more valiant, but even here some amusing exceptions occurred. One of the Piedmontese, a villainous looking fellow of the brigand type, who appeared to be devoid of all feeling, threw himself into the assistants' hands groaning. "Come, come," said the doctor, "stand up, and don't make an ass of yourself." He stood up pale and trembling, but after the first puncture he again groaned, and had to be supported for the second. He left the room speedily and ashamed of himself. He was followed by an agricultural laborer fresh from his village. He arrived late, having lost himself on the road. The doctor reprimanded him in a good natural way. "But you won't hurt me, will you?" he asked, as he glanced at the syringe, which was a mystery to him. But ere he could make out what it was he felt it. "Oh, my!" he cried, with an oath, "that's enough! let me go!" But the strong arm of the assistant was on him, and he resigned himself to the sec- oud puncture with better grace, and went away with his curiosity satisfied. I .repeat that these were exceptiot>al cases only, and once the operation over, all admitted it was comparatively painless, and not half so had as they had imagined. The operation, however, is not devoid of danger to the doctor and his assistants. One accident happened. A muscular youth was undergoing his second puncture when, in spite of himself, he made a sudden move and jerked out the syringe, which pricked the hand of the assistant who was holding him, thereby inoculating him with the virus, so it is a question whether he will not have to undergo treatment himself.—London Globe. Kind Words from an Angel. It was evident that she scolded for the pleasure of scolding; to be disagreeable, as pretty women find a singular, rare, extraordinary diversion in being, once a month or a week or a day; for his replies to her reproaches were frank, earnest and flagrantly truthful. The majority in the car was for him, although a good advocate, who would have whispered to her to undo the knot of her brows, might still have made for her a triumph similar to that of Helena, daughter of Leda, in the Greek council. Surely he suffered all the tortures of the abandoned; but there was an old woman iu black in the car, and she must have been a fairy in disguise, she was so mar- velonsly wrinkled and ugly, Sha put her shriveled hand on the little gloved hand of his companion, aud calmly, in a voice of the last century, a voice to sing to a clavichord accompaniment, she i-aid: "Madam, I had lovers once: and, peevish, [ fancied I could never lose them. Now, 1 would be ami- ablo to a man who loved me, even if ho had, liko my shawl, which is made of more holes than stuff, more faults than virtues 1 would be amiable to him/'— New York Times. C'iiii.seii of Hciutaches. "You can judge of the cause of a headache in K-any instances by its location," said the doctor after he had asked his little patient where the pain was that she complained of. A dull headache; in the front of the head, particularly above the eyes, proceeds almost invariably from indigestion, and can be treated accordingly. At the back of the head, however, just above tho neck, a steady pain betokens congestion or too much blood in the brain. An excellent remedy for this is to apply a mustard plaster on the spine just below the neck. This almost invariably draws the blood away from the head aud gives relief. Neuralgic headache is unmistakable through the .sudden darting character of its pains. Cloths wrung out of the hottest water one cau stand will help this suffering sometimes to a great extent.— New York Tribune. Thackeray aud Xobucco. Thackeray rarely wrote withoiit a cigar between his teeth. In his "Fitz- boodle Papers" he jocularly suggests that all the hullabaloo agaiust smoking has been raised by women, who are jealous of it as a rival. And it is a rival to them, he admits, "and their cou- querer too. Germany has been puffing away for threescore years. France Eraokes to a man. Do you think you could keep the enemy out of England? Ask the clubhouses. I, for my part, do 110 despair to see a bishop lolling out of the Athenaeum with a cheroot in his mouth, or at any rate, a, pipe stack in SENATOR JIM I Nineteenth Centuipy faisuff tVho Mad* a Reputation at Wadhlntftot,. Little Nevada h$8 had somefamons senators, and still has. Among the older hangers on about the Capitol one may still hear the echoes of laughter over Jim Nye's jokes. He sat tot, years at the right hand of stately, dignified Charles Sumner, and he was Very "fond of keeping up a running fire of comment in language which caused the fastidious New Englander to raise his eyes in astonishment. Sunmer, who was the soul of politeness, was often greatly embarrassed by Nye's conversation, being shocked almost beyond expression and yet not wishing to show offense. Nye was a sort of Falstaff of the Nineteenth century, and everybody liked him. He had little or no literary culture, and was not much burdened with convictions. If lie had any he didn't trouble others with them. He would rather raise a laugh than make a speech any day. Horace Greeley once sat down on the senator's new hat, and Nye, picking up the crushed stovepipe, said gravely, "I could have told you it wouldn't fit before you tried it on." The few speeches which he did make were rather strings of anecdote than arguments on the question before the senate. One of his stories was of the Irishman who visited a large city and the dogs took after him. He tried to pick the paving stones out of the street to stone the dogs, and failing in this struck an attitiide and exclaimed, "A foino country for liberty where they turn the dogs loose and tie the stones down!" Once Nye tried his hand at kite flying. "The goddess of liberty," he exclaimed, "has her home in the mountains of my state of Nevada." "Quite a solitary residence for the lady," remarked Senator Hendricks quietly. This raised a laugh at the expense ot Nevada, but Nye was equal to the .emergency. "Liberty," said he, "is a mountain nymph, and when the flag goes down elsewhere you will find it barricaded and protected in our mountain fastnesses, where our people inhale liberty unmingled with the malaria of those unfortunate states along the Ohio. Wt. breathe the pare air of heaven, while in Indiana they have to mix theirs with quinine. Nye and Stewart came to the senate about the same time, and' were both from New York, born within fifty miles of each other. The former always called himself Jim Nye, and liked to have others address him in the same way. He was a man of large frame and°appetites, long, luxuriant hair, prematurely whitened, a fat, beardless face. He was known as the best quick speaker in the senate. He had imagination, vivid de scription, flashes of wit and true Irish humor. One of the best things he ever said was of Senator Sprague, of Rhode Island, who is still living in seclusion on his ancestral estates near Newport. Sprague had. interrupted one of Nye's flights of eloquence, whereupon the Nevada man turned to his neighbors and remarked loud enough to be heard all over the hall, "I can't hit a canary bird like that with a cannon ball."— Scran ton Truth. The Practical Blau and the Scientist. For the sake of illustrating the difference between the practical man and theorist, let us suppose two persons to visit the northern peninsula of Michigan seeking for iron. The one runs along 'blindly, takes up with every good show, and mines. The result is, he either makes a happy strike by mere accident or spends thousands of dollars in useless search. The other has studied the laws of electricity, and knows that certain ores of iron are magnetic. He understands also that these ores will exert their influence through any amount of superincumbent earth. Consequently he provides hiin- ••lf with a dipping needle and compass, : ad by the operation of these tells where • bed is located, its approximate depth and probable amount of material. To prevent being deceived by the magnetic schists in that region, by means of his dipping needle and compass he traces up the bod until he finds an outcrop. Thus have been located, at little expense, many of the mining regions of that locality. What an achievement is this, and how much better than the blind guesses of the so called practical man!— W. H, Smith, M. D. in Popular Science Monthlv. Occupations iu Keayen. A little Vermont friend aged four stood by the window as the family physician drove by with a smile and a bow for his little favorite. A moment later she turned from the window with a sigh and said, "Mamma, isn't it too bad that Dr. Blank can't go to heaven?" "Why, Jessie?" said mamma in surprise. "What makes you think he can't go to heaven 1 :" "Why, of course he won't go," said Jessie. "There's nobody sick there, and they won't need any doctors." Little Jessie's original idea was told to the clergyman, who called a day or two later, who said that he should consider that "a knock down argument" against the theory that we are to continue our present occupations iu the future life. A popular physician en hearing the above said that lie did not seo why the doctors had not as good a chance as the ministers, for surely there would be no souls to save in the better land.— Rochester Free Press. A French IJarber's Joke. Everybody knows that little joke of a barber at the expense of a young "Ly- ceeu," who, glowing with* pride at the discovery, fancied or real, of the first appearance of tender down on his chin, hurried off to the hairdresser's to get shaved. The wily Figaro offered him & chair, placed a napkin around his neck, covered his face with the fragrant lather and then walked away to attend to other business, apparently quite obliv ions of hia new customer.

NyeO IN THE DIVORCE COUNTRY, March. Sioux Palls is too good and too great to be known abroad as the headquarters for quick divorce. We were shown at the Cataract House the various plaintiffs and defendants. The trial of these cases affords interesting entertainment for man and beast. The Baroness do Stetirs was waiting around the court house watch- BETWEEN THE PLAINTIFF AND DEFENDANT. ing the divorce works and ever and anon sticking a fork in her decree to see if it was done. Her husband said that she was crazy, and tried to put her in a retreat. She has him on the run, however, as this goes to press. According to the baroness, who is a tall, handsome woman, the'baron used to open the exercises of the day by reversing his cuffs and ejaculating to his wife, "I wish I had never married you!" 1 met a man who was here as a witness. He said he resided here. "And how does witnessing pay here?" I inquired. "Very well," he said; "very well in most cases. I have a comfortable home here now, all made as a witness in divorce cases. Sometimes I act as a witness and again as a juror. Formerly I was an actor. 1 played the doom in an emotional play one year and returned to Chicago very much broken in health. I applied to a physician, giving him my card and telling him my symptoms. He looked at me keenly, then he read my card and said: " 'You have, made a mistake. The place where they cure hams is farther down the street.' "1 have since that abandoned the stage to its fate." I have decided that a lack of suitable employment has much to do with these divorces in high life. If the husband had to saw wood or jerk an engine over 500 miles of mortgaged roadbed every day, and could come home tired and hungry six days in the week instead of loading himself up with spirits and club scandal, he would probably be able to put more money into stock and less into alimony. It is the same on the other side of the house. It is no fresh discovery that Satan's intelligence office supplies more work for the unemployed than any other place. The life of the party to to action for divorce here is indeed a bleak one. Plaintiff and defendant at Sioux Palls live at the same hotel because it is the best one. There they mope around, waiting for their turn at court, and glare at each other across their fruit meringue. Different cases do not get acquainted much with each other, each regarding his or her case as exceptionally, aggravated, while the others of course are mere disgraceful cat and dog tights. 1 did not see the Baron de Steurs, but I saw his successor. Being a baron, as n Dakota man said yesterday, is not always the snap that it is regarded by tho masses. The heart of a baron may be at times cast down even as others are, A cold hearthstone around which are clustered the slippers of another person no doubt chills the heart of a baron just as it would the heart of oae who is in trade. i sometimes think that possibly I have hurt the baron business in this country by a light and flippant manner in referring to some of onr struggling barons, but 1 am sorry for it now. Barons who mean to do right will always find in me hereafter a warm ft lend, patron and chaperon. Miss McSwellau Woertz writes a letter from a postoffice iu Now Hampshire which 1 cannot make out.

Can you judge one's nature by tho handwrite? L. M. W. DEAR LAURA—Your letter regarding penmanship and also tackling obstruse questions regarding the great why, and laying hold on'the mysterious because, was duly received through the personal influence of Mr. Wanamaker. I hardly know how to answer you fully and succinctly, and I would hate to write you and then feel afterward that the letter was not succinct. I would judge from your letter that you are naturally full of sparkle and chaste gayety, but had been kept back and stepped on and braised by.Fate and thrown down, and ill fortune has, as I may say, had you in the door. Excuse plain words, for I am a plain man, plain and simple. I make a specialty of both of these features. Your letter and composition would indicate that you could make some good man deliriously happy if you would. You would have to use judgment of course about letting this happiness dawn on him too suddenly. You should sort of mentally unfold to him day by day, as it were, so that he can get acclimated. That would be my advice. Do not let him mentally founder himself. It might give him brain colic, and nothing is more disagreeable than for an intellectual bride to have to walk bhe floor of nights with a groom who has overloaded his thinker and has acidity and water brash on the brain. Be careful, Laura, to dawn on him easy, like an October morning. Do not burst on him like the unexpected return of an American husband who said he was going to be away all night, but steal in on his darkened soul like a footpad in York state. Sort of grow on him, like a beautiful lichen or edible fungus. Cling to him, as Deuteronomy would say, like a pup to a root. You are of a kindly nature, and would also shine in the household. I would say that, judging by your handwriting, you would make a good jell cake with frosting on it, if reverses came. Also that you would turn out a good clinker built pie, while in the matter of needlework and rag carpets you would arouse the envy and malice of the great maestros and artists. The acoustics of your rag carpets would awaken a new interest in explosives. You would not be content with imitating nature in your art. You would make foliage a good deal, greener than nature has ever dared to do, and your sunsets would be redder and more intemperate, I think. But you must not be cast down, Laura. Certainly I would encourage you to be brave. Good men are scarce and shy now, but when spring opens you will hear their baritone honk as they go northward, Do not get too near them while molting, for they are timid and easily startled, but watch your chance when they are grazing and possibly during the sucker season you may land ono, for men as a rule are not so able as they let on to be. THE MAN WHO MIGHT PO. I saw a man yesterday whom I thought at the time would fall an easy prey if you had been near by with a good Limerick hook baited with red ilaunel. He was a real bald man. You could Kee at a glance that it was not assumed. He only had a, slight daah of hair, a shrimp pink lambrequin of self reliant jute hanging recklessly on the suburbs of his head and wandering along down among the large cool patches of sage green freckles cm his hectic oeck. I never speak lightly of a b^ldbeaded man, Laura, for 1 always say to myself, "NomankaowB when ike way he thai way himself." But this wan whpia for you was ft ««j» .«' •>. UVM * v«|i*>Ki,a\i bv.
