But a deadlock on typewriter salaries occurred a.t the last moment and the clock was set going again. -F- -H -*- not to call him. He took a big dose of morphine and died Friday at 4 o'clock.

Tho committee on retrenchment and reform of which both Senator Funk and Judge Carr were members reported in favor of cutting the salaries of janitors, clerk?, typewriters, etc., to somewhere near the commercial rate. The report raised a storm of protest in the offices and was rejected in the senate. But the senate appropriation committee had made its estimates on the basis of this reduction and its report was accordingly sent buck. It refused to change it, and the senate refused to adopt it. The deadlock lasted a day. A compromise was flnally effected by which some few salaries were put up a little. -t- -f- H- One of the amusing features of the close of the session was a caucus of the free silver democrats gathered to read the Dos Moines Leader out of the party. They unanimously declared that it is unworthy the patronage of the pure democracy, and that its opinions are for sale. It is said that a free silver daily is to bo started in DOS Moines. •+- -f- -s- During the three last legislative sessions Senator Punk's ways and means committee has not been defeated on a single important measure. It is a remarkable record. Senator Punk has been a power in recent legislation. •*- H- H- This legislature furnishes some candidates for state office. Representative Merriam is out for the state audl- torship this fall. Senator Mullan will ask to be attorney general. Speaker Punk wants to be governor, it is alleged. -5- -S- -J- The last act of the session was the appropriation of $600,000 for war. In case war'is declared an extra session will not have to be called to provide money for getting Iowa's troops in fighting trim. -i- -S- -*During the coming year $1,600,000 will be raised for ordinary expenses and $1,600,000 the year following. It is estimated that this will pay running expenses and wipe out the state debt. It amounts to a three-mill levy. Representative Eaton made himself ridiculous at the last by arising to a question of privilege and offering to thrash a newspaper reporter. A member who can't get fair treatment from the newspaper men has not sense enough for the legislature. Newspaper men are occasionally unfair, but when one considers the complimentary prevaricating they do for an average legislative body a few slips ought to be overlooked. Following are the important acts of this session: The state board of control bill. It provides a board of three members to control 13 of the state's institutions— its charitable, eleemosynary, penal and reformatory establishments, leaving only the three educational institutions outside. The board is given administrative and executive powers over them, and supersedes the boards of trustees, which under the old law administered the institutions, a separate board to each. About70 trustees and local treasurers of institutions are abolished. The new board takescharge July 4. Voting $500,000 for war if war comes. Allowing counties to contract with banks for interest on the county deposits. The Temple amendment, the occasion of a famous fight in the Twenty- sixth assembly, was passed with practically no opposition. Building and loan contracts made prior to the passage of the law of 1896, which otherwise might be assaulted as usurious, are legalized by an act to that effect. The pharmacy laws are amended to make the penalties for illegal liquor selling less severe in some cases in which it was considered they were unreasonable. The practice of osteopathy in the state-is legalized. A year ago a like bill was defeated after a great fight. The Missouri river is adopted as the western boundary of the state for judicial purposes without regard to change of channel. Tt is expected'Nebraska will adopt a corresponding law, thus putting an end to many questions of disputed jurisdiction. The state treasurer is authorized to sell warrants in anticipation of revenues, when necessary on Account of a deficit, and interest on warrants is reduced from 6 to 5 per cent. A primary election law was passed to provide legal guards against corrupt practices at such elections. The support funds of the state institutions are reduced to such an extent that a biennial saving of about $150,000 will be made. Fully 150 bills were killed, an important feature of this session.

Easteru tourists who cannot differentiate between a California stage driver and an eastern ooaohman meet with many a rude shook in the wild and woolly west, and they soon learn that the Oalifornian is a knight of the reins several grades higher in the social scale than the menial of the east. There is an old driver at Monterey who is determined that his patrons shall make no mistake concerning his exact status, and in a quiet way ho checks all attempts to make a servant of him. A short time ago he was driving a party of tourists about, when one querulous old lady who had annoyed him not a little by her air of superiority asked: "My man, do you know the name of that wild flower?" "Yep," he replied and flicked one of his leaders with his whip. She paused a moment for him to give the name, but ho merely clucked to the wheelers. "Driver, do you know the name of that flower?" she repeated in an imperious tone. "Yep. Git up there, Ballyl" Again she waited and again demanded: "Man, don't you know the name of that flower?" "Yep. G'long there, Pete!" "Then why don't you tell me?" "Oh, yon want to know, toft, do you? That's a wild rose."—San Francisco Post. Arkansas, a great many years ago, was nicknamed the Bear State, from the abundance of bears in the mountainous districts. For over 40 years Arkansas had almost a monopoly of the bear stories of this country. Charles VI of France was hated by bis people, and in derision was termed the Well Beloved.
