Th« latent English golf story Is toW Mr. Justice Jjtuwtsncd against Him-* A y0Ahg woman who played the pianoforte once asked Brahms, the composer, as to the advisability of giving a concert in Vienna. "Are you all ready," Inquired Brahms. "Certainly, dear master; may I play something for you?" "Oh. no, no; I meant only have you a new gown and gloves?" "Yes, sir." "Pity; otherwise I should have advised you not to give the concert." The following etory Is going the rounds in Vienna: A well known Austrian anti-Semite and statesman encounters three private soldiers. "Would you shoot me, if you were ordered?" he asked the first. "Certainly, I would obey orders." "What is your religion?" "I am a protestant." "Well, and you?" to the second. "I would kill you sure, although I am a Catho- He, like yourself." "And you?" to the third. "I am a Jew, but I couldn't Bhoot you." "Why, my brave fellow? Do you not know that I am the greatest anti-Semite in either Austria or Hungary?" "That is so, but you see I have no gun. I play the big drum In the band." . On one occasion Lord Norbury observed an attorney of doubtful reputation prospecting in the dock for business, and determined to make an example of him. Just as the attorney was climbing over the rails of the dock into the court, his lordship called out: "Jailer, one of your prisoners is escaping. Put him back." Back the attorney was thrust, and the following colloquy ensued: "My lord, there is mistake here. I am an attorney." "I am very sorry, indeed," said Lord Norbury, "to see one of your profession in the dock." "But, my lord, I am innocent." "Yes, they all say that," was the Judge's reply; "a jury of your own fellow-countrymen must settle it." "But, my lord," exclaimed the now desperate man, "there is no indictment against me." "Then," said his lordship, "you will be put back, and if no one appears to prosecute, you will be discharged by public proclamation at the end of the assizes." Crowds in Varrous Cities, _ self.

One of the applicants for a consulate in Japan, while James G. Elaine was secretary of state, was tne late Samuel Kimberley, of Baltimore, who died in the service in Central America. After he had presented his credentials, Mr. Elaine said: "I should like to appoint you, Mr. Kimberley, but I have mado, it a rule to recommend no one who does not speak the language of the country to which he is sent. Do you speak Japanese?" "Cert-t-amly, Mr. Blain," stammered Mr. Kimberley; "a-ask me s-s-something in J-J-Japanese and I'll a-a-a-answer you." Mr. Elaine had not a word to any, but the Japanese post went to another man, all the same, and Kimberley went to Central America. One day Kimberley met a young woman who threw her arms impulsively around his neck and kissed him. Seeing her mistake, she drew /back and angrily asked: "Aren't you Mr. Jones?" "N-no-no, madam," replied Kimberley, bowing; "I'm n-n-not, but I w-w-wish to thunder I w-w-was." Kented houses are unknown in Jetmore, Kas. Every house is occupied by its owner.

D., Oct. 16.—President McKinley and his cabinet members completed their day's work Friday in Fargo, N. D. The population, re-enforced by thousands from Crookston, Devil's Lake, Jamestown, Grand Forks, Grafton and other towns, was at the station to greet the presidential train. The president was escorted to the Waldorf hotel, across the street from the station, and from the balcony he addressed the crowd, in front of which stood the three Fargo companies of the First North Dakota volunteers, Just returned from Manila. President McKinley in his speech warmly praised the conduct of the troops in the Philippines, closing with these words: "Our flag is there where you left it, you boys of the North Dakota volunteers. You left It there in the hands of those who took your places, without blot and without stain. And wherever that standard is raised, whether in the western or the eastern hemisphere, it stands for liberty, civilization and humanity. Our flag stands for liberty wherever it floats. And we propose to put 60,000 men behind that flag in Luzon to maintain the authority of the United States and the honor and glory of the republic in the interest of civilization and humanity. We accept the responsibility of duty at whatever cost." At 10 o'clock the train started for Aberdeen, where part of the returned pouth Dakota volunteers will take part in the demonstration. At Superior, Win. President McKinley's greeting at Superior and Duluth came mostly from .the school children. He was introduced by Mayor H. W. Dietrich, and spoke briefly upon the apparent prosperity of the district. Secretary Long's speech was very brief. Secretary Gage said a few words of greeting, and the others were sim- iply introduced to the crowd. A delegation of school children then presented to the president and his cabinet members souvenirs of the first visit of a president of the United States •to the headwaters of Lake Superior. Only twenty minutes were spent in Superior. At 1:30 the president's train arrived in Duluth. President Speaks at Duluth. The day was clear and cold, the crowds noisily enthusiastic and the president seemed to enjoy the demonstration. The fine decorations in honor of the president culminated at the high school building, which was resplendent with flags and flowers and streamers. Ten thousand school children bearing flags were massed upon the broad steps and terraces to salute the president. His carriage was drawn up before the entrance, and without leaving the .vehicle he addressed the crowd. On the Way to Fargo. There was but little speechmaking at Duluth, and before 2 o'clock the president had returned to the train, which left immediately over the Northern Pacific for Fargo.

Triumphs Over Canada, Washington, Oct. 16.—Under the modus vivendi concerning the boundary of Alaska, which Canada has accepted, the United States surrenders no substantial advantage. Dyea and Skaguay remain on the American side of the line. Canada gets no port on Lynn canal or elsewhere on tide water. Neither does she get territory on, any stream navigable by vessels much larger than canoes. In fact, the line was drawn by this government, and imports into the Klondike through the Chilkoot or White pass will have to cross American territory. The line agreed upon is only temporary, but it puts upon Canada the burden of proving that she is entitled to any further territory. \Viiut youy uibuitticiio or lieard a beautiful or rk'.li Hitiolc?

"The best that can be said of the clothes imported by American men from London is that they are well made," said Nelson R. Huntingtoh of New York, who has spent years abroad In the study of the hospitals, "They never fit. Indeed, the art of misfit seems to be carefully studied. The garments of both men and women never set well, and even the actresses, who are supposed to be exacting, suffer from the inability or indisposition of the English tailors to fit the figure. The finish, however, shows fine and •thorough workmanship. The French achieve better fits, but the work is atrocious, making the best garments look cheap and hurried. Not even important buttons are secure. American tailors and dressmakers surpass everything in Europe in making a fit, and the finish compares favorably with the English. The New Yorkers who import garments made by Poole and other fashionable London tailors had them refitted by American tailors until a year or two ago, when the latter refused to touch them at any price."— Philadelphia North American, THE PRESSMEN PLEASED.

"One hundred members of the Canadian Press Association are deeply grateful to tho Canadian Pacific Railway Company for the unremitting courtesy and hospitality which has made their trip across the continent the most Interesting and pleasant of all their outings. Though conscious of the sterling work accomplished in the spanning of a continent, for a large part remote from settlement, and in the opening up of a territory as vast aa some empires, the actual view unfolded on tho Journey has Impressed the excursionists more forcibly than words can represent. The development all along the route, in cities as well as in agricultural and grazing sections, has surprised us, and is most encouraging to lovers of solid progress and hopeful prosperity. The ease and comfort with which the trip from ocean to ocean is attended in the cars and in the C. P.
