TttE ETEHIKG GAZETTE: THURSDAY,'FEBRUARY Evening Gazette. T U H Jtt» : NEWSPAPER PUBLISHERS TALKING. THURSDAY. FED. 9, jusS. THK GRAMI ARMY of the Depublfr is an organization, which in its constitution, exclude? . politics from the loilges, yet from the very nature of things. Its members nre connected with politics. Understand: there is differences between politics and partisanship —and a very widn difference, too. It is a common impression amontf the members of. this order, aa it is among j very many not soldiers, that every man i in any wise afHlctcd through military i serv ce in the late war should be pen-. sioned. Many of the members believe that all soldiers (Union) of the late war I should be pensioned, whether seeming- i ly disabled or not. upon the principle ' that all suffered seriously in health and shortened their lives, that many lost' useful and prolltable employment, I which they never regained, and others ' lost opportunity to receive collegiate ' and professional education, or trades; i also, they favor It upon grounds of 1..I i ty patriotism. Now political parties ' control legislation; the soldiers must receive their meed of pension through Congress. Now, if one political party combat this position of the members of the Orand Army, while it Is forbidden the various posts to discuss partisan politics at their meetings, it Is not forbidden to the individual members to throw their influence with that p,-ir- ty which is most in sympathy with that which they have most at heart and with that paity through which they expect to accomplish their object,— viz., the pensioning in fair amount all who show any form of disability, if not all who fought for the flag.

In the evening a meeting was held jointly with advertising agents relative to the adoption of a plan whereby the newspapers and the agent* thorn-wives could get rid of th many irresponsible parties who seek to place advertising.

"Guess your experience at horse raising, then, Jg rather limited, stranger," said old Stoine; "but as you ask me a civil question and seem to be an honest sort of - chap, I'll tell you all about it." "Didn't you never hear of wild horses'"he asked, suddenly. '(Well," continued btclne, "that's one of them lying there and I reckon ho was the biggest thief in the whole lot. You nee they run In gangs of fifty In a hundred, and" the stallions steal onr mares and drive them off Into the wild bands, and that's the last we ever nee of them, unless it is with a spyglass. They Just go plum wild and spem worse nor the real wild marcs." I then learned from the old ranchman some curious facts about the wild horses of the plains. Every effort to destroy :hom has proved futile, and the aid of tho territorial government la now to be asked to eradicate their hands. They have Increased so wonderfully within tho past ew years that they have become an un- >earable nuisance to the stock growers of 'he plains. They graze in bands of ;wenty, fifty and even one hundred, and ire very difficult to approach.

A peasant's house is a very rude gtrfict- ure, and contains none of the elements of comfort, heiiltlifnlness or cleanliness. Frequently the stables are under the same roof with the tenant. His allowance of furniture, food and clothing being fixed by his landlord, ho Jives scantily. The building is usually of pine or cedar logs obout ton inches in diameter, barked and let neatly together. It la of one story In height, with one room, generally has three or four windows, with one saali In each, and they are protected from theont- s de by rude board shutters, which when closed at night mak« complete darkness within and ventilation miserable. The floors are of Jogs or earth, and the beds are on the floor. There are no stoves in n peasant's house. A stink and cloy chimney fireplace suffices. Here warmth is secured, and the food is cooked in kettles. The family meal is spread on the floor, and the repast Is partaken of while sitting on folded legs tailor style.

Making Cigar I.nboln. "The making of cigar labels requires ' the greatest lithographic skill. The dei sign Is first executed in water colors by the artist, after which it Js transferred to specially prepared Bavarian stones, a separate stoue being required for each color. By printing different colors on top of each other the most wonderful and .pleasing combinations nre produced. Several labels /ire printed at a time. Only for this the cost would be enormous, for i H Is so difficult to Justify .the different parts to tho necessary nicety thu t a large proportion hus to be cast aside as Imperfect. Each firm has a large supply of stock labels, to which new designs are , constantly being added, so that when a cigar manufacturer gets out a new brand he can select an appropriate label without any dolav. "The larger label manufacturers,' continued the manufacturer, employ their own artists, who aro kept busy in getting up new designs, but many Bohemian artists manage to eke out an existence by sketching designs. A good sketch Is often worth $100, while others again, brine; only f 15. The reason we prefer to employ our own artista is the r»- suit of the dishonest practices of the Bohemians themselves. When n man got a good idea he would make several drawings of the same design, each varying only In the minor parts. He would then sell them to different manufacturers and be paid several times over for the same design."—Now York Evening Sun, MnrrlBgo Among- the Greek,.

They nro very alert and difficult to approach, but like the tame horses are easily killed. A bullet In almost any part of tho body will cause tho horse to drop on the plain. Tho Indians' are the best wild horse hunters, but they do not like to bo out In stornvy weather and they cannot stand the cold of winter as well as white men. In a storm is tho best time to hunt wild horses, for they bunch and cunnotsee any onS approaching nnt-U it Is too late to get out of the way of the'bullets. It Is generally useless for n hunter to attempt to run qownawlld horse-with a tame one The tame horse, weighted down by the burden of the hunter's body, soon tires and the wild horso easily escapes. Sometimes tho hunters discover the tracks of wild horses near astream and they then hunt for their watering place. The band always waters at the some place, and although right on the stream, the horses will go up or down Jt for a mile or more in order to drink nt their accustomed watering place. Hiding" in n bush or crawling to a bluff tho hunter lies In wait until, tho horses come to the water, and then shoots iliern. It is difficult to catch them, as they seem to know Instinctively when hunters aro about, nnd if they even suspect danger they will at once leave the locality.

Theanimals get discouraged by the deep snows nnd become hungry and- poor. They are apt at such times to bunch in the coltouwood groves, where they eat the bark off tho trees and chew up all the small limbs they can reach. In winter, too, tho horse hunters can unite with it tho business of wolfing." Perhaps some people do not know what "wolfing" isV' Well n "wolfer" Is simply a wolf hunter, or a man who kills wolves for their hides and tho reward olTored for their destruction A wolfer goes out into the section'of country where the wolves nre thickest and builds him a cabin. He wlU then kill one or two antelopes, skin them and drag the bloody'carcass in pieces nil about the country. Tho meat Iu then poisoned with Stor^ of M. Rodl Carnot. They tell this story of M. Sadi Carnot, uncle of tho new president of the French republic: 'Nnpoleon Bonaparte, when nrst consul, was one day amusing himself on the banks of the miniature lake nt Malmulson by throwing stones In the water near a boatful of ladles who were with Josephine. The ladles were dressed in rather expensive summer toilets and ns the stone throwing of the magnate caused them great annoyance, they protested. ' .Napoleon, however, continued LU amusement, when a little boy 4 years old, who had been looking on, ran up to him and said: "You brute of aflrst consul will yon leave oH tormenting the ladlesf" The consul stopped as if stupefied, and, on seeing the boy, burst out laughing.
