My wits did not desert mo. " 'But!' I,exclaimed. " 'But!' I again shouted, still louder, 'if We are to lay aside the slow processes of law and resume our sovereignty as individual men let,us do so in an orderly and quiet manner.' "That shnple word 'but,' " said Judge Hodges to the president, "saved my Lowering a 'Tenants Rent as a Special Favor to Him. Talking of moving day reminds me of ft trick that the speculators In flat builclhgs and dwellings resort to in New York, said a resident of that city to a St. Louis Globe-Democrat reporter You know there are lots of mer. there who make a business of putting Up houses only to. sell. They build a flat house, fill it with tenants as fast as they.can, and then while it is full Belt It at a good profit. They resort to all sorts of tricks to got tenants. They give one and two -mor-.ths' rout free iu some cases, and make reductions that are astonishing. You pay $25 a month and get a receipt for !j!30 or .$32. The landlord makes It appear that he is favoring a tenant in doing this, but when that tenant becomes acquainted with her neighbors she finds out that they are all favored In the some way, receipts being made out to each largely in excess of tho rent paid. Tile landlord has an object in this. A flat house was sold recently in New =, - ..... York, and the old l.mdlord, iu giving f 0 ',/ i', 1 th ,° interior is intended to notic" to his tenants, handed each a sut • of money that was the difference betveen the rout they actually paid and the amount they got receipts for, telling them to add this to their regular rent when 'the new landlord came around and to say nothing about the matter, but .quietly pay the higher rent. A tenant paying $25 a month received $7 to bo added, so that the new landlord would think he was paying $32. Do you see? The game was a flimsy one, and its Weakness lay in the fact that to an Intelligent person it was not only a swindle Upton tha purchaser of the house,'who', would thus be made to believe that the revenue from the property Was larger than it was in reality, but It was virtually placing the tenant on a new rent footing; it was raising the rent that much under the new landlord. The game is tho same as that practiced by the man who has a 'saloon with a good paying .business' to sell, and, when the purchaser is around, has a lot of tramps and friends to patronize the place freely, so that it being .already placed in four of these' f•Something"is up. girls?- perhaps it niches.

STORY OF NOAH'S ARK. .The Old Woman's Account Was Au, .thentic—She Had it from a Witness i I was reared in the days of black •mammies. As a child I believed all my "mammy" told me without doubt •or question, till the story of the ark came; then faith wavered. I was kneeling on a stool, my arms resting on the kitchen work-table, a 5 by-10 feet receptacle for all things needful in the •preparation of a meal. Mammy was •opposite cutting up a fowl for dinner 'hi one of tho enormous dishpons of that day. She gave me a full description of tho flood, with all the preparations leading up to it. I was especially Impressed when Noah's wife objected to the snakes coming In, but was doubly sympathetic when she protested that wasps and spiders were more than she could stand. I grew calmer as Noah assured her that the latter were fc> go into the closetin the attic, the door to be sealed up, and as to the snakes, they would be boxed and sot away in a comer of the same attic. Other details, which need not hero be given, followed till all was ready for the storm to burst. This lurid affair I will not attempt to describe, but as the ark began to float and its ability to ride tho waves was proven, I breathed more freely and was ready to enjoy, as I had so often done before, the reaction that followed blood-curdling recitals. (Mammies were true novelists, and generally oiidett -, their stories pleasantly, virtue and the right triumphing). surrounded by a roiling O r fence of delicate] iron filigree work. Around the sides of the room arc several small rooms or closets, containing marble tubs, which are used for anointing with Passing from the font room you enter a large room in the northeast corner of the basement, which is furnished in white and contains about 150 opera chairs. Here in the ordinances lectures are given which prepare the mind for what is to come. Passing on from this you enter a room in the southeast corner of the basement, the ceiling of which is painted to represent the sky with sun, moon and stare, and on the side walls of which are fine paintings of animals und scenery. Intended to typify the earth before the introduction of sin, the paintings show peace; for wild animals mingle with tame ones and none offer harm, and the plants, the wildly profuse, are arranged hi rhythmic order. But one particular thing attracted my eye. In the deep embra-' sures of the windows (the walls are 1C feet through) real tropical plants hove been placed and birds seem to be flying over them, so perfectly has the artist Hero and there in the highways and byways of the world many legends and superstitions still linger' and continue to retain their ancient prestige. In Galicia, the province northeast of Hungary, says the Philadelphia Press tho peasants believe that when a star falls to earth it is at once transformed into a rarely beautiful woman with long hair, blonde and glittering. This splendid creature, miraculously eugeu- ercd, exercises on all who come in contact with her a magical influence. Every handsome youth unfortunate enough to attract her attention becomes her victim. Tims having allured GREAT WASHINGTON STATE. Senator 'Squire Says It Has Forest Enough to Belt the Whole Earth "The state of Washington," wrote tho bright^ bad boy on his examination paper,- "is at the upper left hand corner of the United States." "And the Jack Homer who settles in that corner," adds Senator Watson-"'C. Squire, "is going to pull out lots of plums.'Senator Squire settled in Washington When; it was .a territory about fourteen years ago. He was appointed governor by President Arthur m 1884 and was left undisturbed by President Cleveland until 1887. When \Vashiug- tou was admitted to the Union as a them to her she encircles them with her. York bov arms in an embrace that becomes gradually tighter and tighter until the poor blended art and nature. Here lectures muted to the character of the room are given. It is called the Creation room. Passing from this room you .ascend to the first floor by means of a richly carved and wide cherry stairway, at the top of which on the right is a picture of Jesus preaching to the Nephites on this continent, the idea of which is derived from the Book of Mormon. But dupes are strangled to death. If certain words are murmured the moment the star starts to fall they cause her allurements to lose their power. From this superstition springs the custom of wishing while a .star is seen hurrying through the air, a wish said surely to come true if completely formulated before the light fc extinguished. The Spaniards saw hi the falling'stars the souls of their dead friends, the thread of whose existence was cut short by destiny. The Arabs thought-these stars to be burning stones thrown by the angels on to the heads of devils who attempted to enter paradise. The koran reproduces and consecrates this idea and it is found in all the regions under the influence of Islam. It is to this peculiar idea that Moore refers in the following lines from "Paradise and the Peri:" . "Fleeter than the starry brands, Flung at night from angel hands, At those dark and daring sprites Who would climb the heights." empyreal Another ancient superstition belonging originally to the pagans, but one to which the Christians clung, is that the world will come to an end when it rains stars. It is related that during the third year of the reign of Constantino the Red sea entirely froze and the following March so many stars fell from the sky that people thought the State in 1880, ex-Governor Squire was elected senator for tiie short term of two years, and in 1801 he was .reelect- od for the long term. He was-a New York boy, was graduated from Wesleyan college in 1850, and lias been in his varied career a teacher, a lawyer, a soldier—hi the war he rose to be a captain of sharp-shooters and ' afterward judge advocate for the army of the Cumberland—an . agent for the Remington Arms company—he married tflfe daughter of Philo Remiugtou-and finally a fanner near Seattle, and to farming he still gives as much of his time as his political interests will allow. "When I went to Seattle in 1879 ' he said to the New York Tribune reporter, "there were only two'.or three thousand people there. One poor narrow-gauge railroad and a line of slow- moving, clumsy steamboats connected the town with civilization. The rest' of the Territory was a, little less than a howling waldernjer-s.

The wliite bootblack consented to block the black boots of the black bootblack with blacking, but when he. the white bootblack, had blacked one boot of the black bootblack with blocking, he, the wfhlte bootblack, refused to block his the block bootblack's other black boot with blocking unless he, the block bootblack, paid him, the whitq bootblack, tho same as what he, tiho white bootblack, got for blocking other people's black boots, whereupon the block boot- ly her back up'the bank.

The child thought he was still carrying out his part in the play, when he lay so quiet and motionless. She put her little amis about his neck and cried"Baby love 'oo, Dack; 'oo dood, Dack."' Gasping for breath the man smiled upon her. "Jack'11-be-good. Always —good." She patted his face and kissed the closed eyes, and when the others came to them she was whispering softly "Dack, 'oo dood, Dack." THE USEFUL PEANJJT.

New York Independent: The ber" industry of Norfolk, is unique Here is the little city in Virginia that has become the greatest distributing center of peanuts in the world. A peanut is a pretty small item, but on annual crop of something like 5,000,000 bushels, worth millions of dollars makes a pretty big item. The demand for goobers has doubled within the lost five years, and the supply does not yet fill the growing demand. Few people know the curious uses to winch the goober has been put hi trade quite of late years. No other single plant raised in this country is used hi so many different and remarkable ways. The Chinese say that the cocoanut palm, has properties as there year. The goober is not so universial as that; but it has as many valuable qualities as there are days in the week The solid part of the nut is peculiarly nutritive, and supplies fruit and food for many a family. The vines make flue fodder, some say as good as clover hay, while hogs fatten on what is left in the fields after the crop has been gathered. If you grind tho nut you get a sweet quality of flour, with which the housewife makes delicious biscuit. If you squeeze it you obtain a valuable oil resembling olive oil, and used for sim- lar purposes. Tins oil also enters largely into the manufacture of the better grade of soaps. The kernels are as many useful are days in the roasted for coffee. The roasted kernels are also used in the manufacture of some kinds of chocolate.

For instance he referred affectionately to his love as a "smart little filly, little bit skittish; wants careful .lockeyship, but a demon when she gets the bit in her mouth, and yet the smartest in taie field!" "Look at the rare old style she comes to the post!" he joyfully cried, as the laxly walked- up tho room; and "now we're under starter's orders!" as I commenced 1 the ceremony. When I asked the lady If she would "take tliis man," etc., and slue answered in a clear voice, "I will," he remarked, "Takes tho fence like a daisy," and on putting tflie same question to liini th'o answer was, 'Ifs 20 to 1 J will" When all was over and they were hitched into double harness lie flung his arms around her and kissed her impulsively; then turning to us as we WAS ONLY A CONVICT.
