IftTOMJOl MELVIN. STEELE 4 JOHNSON EDITORS AND P R O P R I E T O R S . SATURDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 19 HIS RAM A VIGOROUS BUTTER. X'hy Governor Sibley Lost All Interest In Sheep Raising Schemes. A party of Miiuiesotans, several 1 whom went to tbo stato 30 or 10 years ngo, but afterward drifted to "Washington, generally to take some position under tho government, wore discussing old times in their state in The Journal office tlio other night "1 suppose there are many people in Minnesota, "said 0110 of thorn, "who remember that tho late Gov ernor Sibloy lived for many years at Mc7i«lota, whoro he represented, firt Kb agont iiml su'ofaecii.unlly ;:s D;II f · nor, Iho old Amoncan Fur company, of which Picrro Chouteau of St Louis was president, Sibloy was a iniglity Imntur and had the finest guns and dogs in tho country, which at that timo was full of game. He took a notion that ho would bo the first man to bring into Minnesota ·wbat ho was pleased, to call a flock of sheep and accordingly purchased and had hrought up from Galena, His., a fine ram and ewe Governor Sibloy was approhcusivo that the wolves, which frequented tho place at night, might destroy his flock of sheep; but, surprising to relate, tho wolves apparently did not know what they wore and took no notice of them. Time passed, and tho ram and owe browsed about o.s the slopes until they grew fat and large, but while tho ewe was very tamo the ram became particularly vicious and dangerous. Governor Sibloy and his French-Canadian voy- - agers whom he kept around him were compelled to keep at their distance. "One day Mr. Sibley was walking up and down the banks of the iVIis,- sissippi when he noticed some lino carnehans in the gravel and proceeded to pick them up. While ho was scratching about hunting ior them ho did not perceive that tha ram was vegetating in close proximity to him on the slope of the bank, and hence was not on his guard. Tie ram happened to look up, and seeing a large, dark object bending oveE on the bank of the stream which he did not clearly understand cautiously descended the slope and took a survey of the situation. Not liking the appearance of this object, his choler began to rise, and approaching within distance he raised , on his hind feet, uttered n defiant bah, and before Sibley could appreciate the situation he butted him clear into the river. As he attempted to i :SQ the ram butted him again - and continued tp butt him until Sibley's cries ic.' help attracted the attention of his ivi'vants, and they ran down to the river with sticks and stones and drove the rar.i off. When Sibley got out; He was vet from head to foot and in a towering passion. No doubt he was pretty well bruised by the attack made upon him. He cried in French: " 'HippolyteDupuis,apportezmou fuse. Jo yens tuer cot sacro animal !\ "His people expostulated in vain, hut finally brought Sibley his gnu, ·which ho raibed to his shoulder and let his ramship luivo both ban el?, which resulted in the destruction of tit least tho male part of Siblcy's Hock of sheep. Bibley gave tho c\\ o away and Iroui that time nover took any intcrcot in sheep raising in Min- UCSOIM, " -- Minneapolis Journal. cnwii l-;v ii-;T h u n t i n g begins in /\nril ar.d lists until tin: monanon.

A Too Fascinating Game. Mr. Blackburne, tho English chess champion, regards tho gnmo of chess as a dangerous intellectual vico which is spreading to rather an alarming extent Ho says: . "I know a lot of people who hold tho view that chess is an excellent means of training 1 tho mind in logic and shrewd calculation, provision and caution. Bnt, I don't find thoso qualities reflected in tho lives of chess players. They aro just as fallible and foolish as othor folks who don't know a rook from a pawn. But even if it were a form of montal discipline, which I doubt, I should still object to it on tho ground of its fatal fascination.. Chess is a kind of ] montal alcohol. It inebriates the ' man who plays it constantly. Ho lives in a chess atmosphere, and his dreams aro of gambits and the end _ of games. I havo known many an · ablo man rninod by chess. Tho game has charmed him, and as a consequence he has given tip everything .to tho charmer. No, unless a mm.. " · .has supremo self control it is bettor that he should not learn to plav ·-- v chess.' I have never allowed my children to learn it, for I havo seen too , - ^ much of ita evil results. Draughts · ~ - is a better game, if you must have a · ,, ' game."--Fittobuig Times. SAMPLES OF TRAMP SLANo. Which, Though Thej Would Shook Webster, Aro DecUleilly KxprcsMVC. "Much has been written recently upon tho technicalities of various classes of life and upon the peculiar pioviucialifams and terms of speech made nso of nmong the different business worlds," said an aged cosmopolitan to n reporter recently, "but do J T OU know that there is no class of people on tho globo whose gibberish is ns apt and natural as that of tho tramps? It is true, and there aro many cases in which it has secured the coveted meal. Tho tramp who pretended such abject starvation that ho nte grass at tho front door of the lady who opened the gate, and who pityingly invited him to go into tho garden where tho grass was so much higher, at first feared tbo inn ovation had failed, but was soon rewarded for his ingenuity by tho presentation of a well filled ihbh of food. The fact that the trnnip has visited almost all is of interest in his country gives him at least such ail ease of manner that not infrequently he 'biaccs up' and becomes n trusted factor in some smaller town whoro society is run with an easier rein than in cities. Now, to givo you an idea, of the versatility with which they converse in their own peculiar manner, I will call your attention to what another tramp just asked mo as I walked into the hotel. Perhaps yon heard him. Ho said: "'Say, bo, did you soe anything of a. bo dinging along tho path with a lamp ont and a, wheel off?' "Well, to mo that was plainer than had ho addressed mo in tho purest English, which would have boon, 'Dkl you. see anything of a fellow walking up tho railroad with .1 leg cut off and an eye out?' And thus it is through the various parts of speech they havo a shmlo, if that is tho word, that fits the class properly. Let mo toll you a few just as I happen to recall them. "In tho first place, a log isa wheel; aft eye a lamp; walking, dinging; railroad, path; money is dough; a person is a guy; to rob is to swipe; a hat is a, skypiece; an umbrella, a shower stick; shirt, skin; suit, teams; shoes are kicks; fingers are fins; cofioa is Java; beef is slaughter; broad is prink; pio is pith, and tho biscuits wo usually are tendered on our jonrnej' we call No. 8's because they aro usually the size of a shot of that number. " While you would express au incident in straightforward English that would bo comprehended by the most ignorant person present we could dazo tho most learned judge with a single sentence perfectly appropriate to the occasion. Imagine the stupctaction of the distinguished juclgo in a recont caso in Mississippi when, having arrested a vagrant for drinking with a crowd upon the street, in reply to his usual injunction to 'tell it in your own way' he received the following straightforward statement: " 'Well, me and de push was up in de mainstem sloppin up and den took a mopo to do jungles to kip, imd da bulls cum down and glomed do whole push.' "On being ordered to explain he declared: " 'I and the crowd (push) were up Main street taking a few drinks, after which we walked leisurely down to the woods to sleop awhile, when the policeman came down and arrested us. 1 "Another and better word for arrest has recently crept into the vagrant's vocabulary--the word 'pinch, 1 taking its origin from the idea of handcuffs. And thus I might mn through the whole list and give you a thousand such instances; but, I declare, I must add a simolion to my barrel, or I will not bo 'flush with dough for the tomorrow festival,' " and bidding our correspondent adieu the Noah Webster of vagrancy stalked from the La Glide with tha air of a man who had the destiny of all literature at his finger tips. An hour later he was seon following a policeman to the lockup, and a distant look upon his face showed that he, too,"hadseeii better days."--Atlanta Journal. Statistics of Dnels In Italy. Duel statistics, grewsome though they aro, are interesting reading. An Italian "man of figures" has taken tho trouble to ascertain to tvhat extent his country has contrib- ated during ten years toward the in- Oreasa in the army of duelists. The following figures are the result of Ins researches: Prom 1884lo 1894 no less than 947 duels were fought in Italy over newspaper controversies, 730 by rival lovers, 377 over political questions, 289 for insults, 183 for private reasons and 19 over gambling quarrels. In 79 cases the cause of the duel was unknown. Journalists nnd officers in Italy are first among iluelisls. Of the 538 duels fought in 188-J, ICG were fought by journalists »nd 165 by officers in tho army. Of ·luolhig lawyers there were 64; stu- lonts, 6G; professors, 22; deputies, 14; engineers and architects. 13;! servants. 6. and bankers, 2.--West-' oiinstcr Gazette. A Dramatic Future. It may be that it is better for a man to read anything than nothing, as the faintcdt halo of belief may be something higher than no faith at nil. Bnt wo are inclined to bo of Emernon's mind and shun tho reading of any book that is not at tho leasfca year old. Time will choose for us, and the muddy stream of periodical literature will not bo worth our drinking until filtered by his agency. If this bo true with books, it will oven more assuredly bo true with stago plays, which are but a subsidiary mode of education and by no means necessary for a right appreciation of life. So we may bo content to sit apart for a time, watching for what may come forth from the present theatrical chaos,, that we may note judiciously the ultimate survivors. For though in a sense wo may ho merely players upon tho stago of the earth, yet our whole concern is not with mummeries, and there are .other things worthy men's notice be- DUHkV-tttd bog YOU ARE INVITED.
