Some of the Polite Fiction That Passes Current Among Statesmen sortIgovernment and a sentence therein which has occasioned some comment in English newspapers reminds one of many similar instances where the truth is nicely gilded by ministers and diplomatists until it becomes hardly recognizable at all The sentence referred to in the Spanish report deals with coast de lenses and speaking of Gibraltar mentions that spot as being at pres ent in temporary possession of the English This is excellent seeing that Gibraltar has been in English hands andcontrol for 800 years for Sir George 3ooke captured it in 1704 and it has never been out of our pos session since- Tcmporary is therefore dis tinctlygood and the Spanish authori ties arc to be commended upon the smart way in which they can throw dustin the eyes of those under them We in Britain arc not without one or two examples of similar gilded pills however if we will only re gard our own glass house some what closely Whenever a royal commission is appointed and JohnJonestheMP- for Little Pedlington after much logrolling on his part is made amem ber of it why should it be necessary for him to receive a mandate from the council in the name of the sovereign in which the king is made to address John as right trusty and beloved For everybody knows that the king has probably never seen or heard of John Jones before Similarly when a European mon archwritestoanyothersovereignwithwhom bad terms the letter is made by the diplomatists to commence with Wellbeloved royal cousin or some pleasant fiction of that kind which does not by tiny means deceive the recipient of it who only tries through Ms own ministers to still further show what point dan be reached in writing beautiful nonsense charm laugh at the Chinese method 6f politeness by which the host in a mandarins house begs the tramp not to enter as My hovel is unworthy of your august feet touching its miser able floori And yet our custom toms dictate like the laws of the Modes and Persians that when a thoroughly successful gentlemanly and widely respected business man writes to a brokendown disreputable pauper peer he must adopt such a charmingly truthful description of himself as Your lordships most humble and obedient servant There was much fine language fly ing about of words of many syllables when Alphonso XIII was proclaimed king of Spain king of Castile king of the Spanish possessions in Amer ica king of the Philippines and king of many other places which are now no more Spanish than is the Gibraltar which is at present in temporary possession of the English Stray Stories GOT OUT TOO SOON The Old Ladys First Ride in an Automobile It had taken considerable per suasion to induce the old lady to take a scat in aiT automobile but finally she had consented to do so because she was anxious to reach the bedside of her sick grandchild in a village some 20 miles away the last train for which had left some ten minutes before she arrived at the station When the owner of the big automobile who was touring through Long Island had overheard the old ladys regrets at being left he had insisted upon her accompanying him ashe was tojDass through the particu lar one of the halfa dozen or more Long Island villages named Hamp J ton where thosick child lived Ev erything went lovely until the almost 1 flying vehicle in attempting to passI a Wagon loaded with hay which oc cupied the entire center of the road went unexpectedly into the ditch and rather violently deposited its occu pants in an adjoining field Recov

in Melbourne said a Washingtonian who recently visited Australia on a business mission fora Philadelphia manufacturing concern I was present ai a stag dinner given by an Englishman who had only a short time before struck it rich in the gold fields He was middle aged and a cockney of the cockneys He had been poking around the auri ferous hills of Australia with a pick for more than 20 years before he struck the ledge that made him a millionaire many times over Ho was a bachelor and Vhcnl got to Melbourne lie had only recent ly got his magnificent domicile in running order He had about two dozen servants the top man of course being a characteristically grave and imperturbable English but ler a fellow as stiff as a lamppost and with about as much humor in his carcass as a ninepin The stag dinner was a pretty jolly affair It was attended by about 20 wellknown menabouttown of Melbourne and some perfumers from the Melbourne vaudeville theaters wore engaged to entertain the guests The English butler presided over the feast with the solemn manriur be fitting his kind Thefun ran around the table like a breeze nftr the wine began to operate but nary a grin crossed the fcahrrea of the haughty butler He stood at the sideboard as straight as a persimmon tree with his arms folded and his countenance was like a mask of tragedy when the host and all of the guests were all but rolling out of their chairs with laughter I was sitting on the left ofthe host and 1 observed that the preter natural gravity of the butler was grating on the hosts nerves When ever the laughter was at its height the cockney millionaire would glance up front beneath his bushy eyebrows at the butler only to perceive that not so much as a muscle of that dig nitarys face wastwitching mime me I heard the host mutter savagely to himself two or three times wy dont that bloomink cove tail yknaw Even when the vaudeville people began to execute their cutup stunts the butler never gave the slightest indication that he saw anything funny ia the proceedings Finally mono logue chap Jivhose line of talk wan screamingly funny got the floor and it wasnt long before he had everyman at the table justa rocking and holding their sides The host kept his eyes glued upon the butlers face to see if the professional entertainer even was capable of drilling a grin out of his face But it was no go The butler stood like a rock To all intents and purposes he might just as well have had paralysis of the facial nervesThe Cockney host couldnt stand it any longer He jumped out Qf his chairshowing that he was just a bit unsteady on his legs which was natural enough considering the way the corkshadbeenpoppingandr- ushing upon the butler and catching him around the waist he threw the imperturbable servitor onto the floor threw open the butlers coat dug the fingers of both his strong pudgy hands into the butlers ribs to tickle him and bawled as he leaned overtime man y bloody Stbughton bot ILad Thats right larf Larf till y y bloomink covet The butler convulsed with uncontrollable shrieks of aughteiund r the tremendous l ckling which he was undergoing yelled to be let up before he went off into isterics but his employer went right on tickling him with all his might until the butler was exhausted Then he let him up r knowed hid makeHi y5 larf y bloomer and now that yevc larfed Ill give y

w SAW REAL LIVE SNAKES The ManWho Thought He trod Delirium But Had l On at least one occasion 1 had snakes in guy boots said the Ulan with the red nose too New Orleans TimesDemocrat reporter and it was no wild delirious fancy cither ihcyIfangs and forked tongues and all the other things which go with a wellI made and complete member reptilian species I had gone out on fishing trip with some friends up in Arkansas and we were quartered in a tent on one of the best lakes in the southeastern section of the state It was during the hot season I never saw as many snakes in all niy life as we found around that lake and they were of all sizes shapes and colors Time heat was so inteme it was during a severe drouth of 1881 that all the snakes in that section gathered around thelake in an effort no doubt to keep cool They would slip down to the waters edge burrow in the mud and cut other curious ca pers because of time prevailing drouth Late in the evening they would take a whirl at swimming wrigglingout into the lake for some distance and then pull back to the shore again T mention these facts merely to show that snakes wore plentiful in that sec tion The heat had made them des perate but we never anticipated any trouble from this source We pitched our tent at the head of the lake and were inclilied to gloat somewhat over the splendid location we had secured and the coziness of our surroundings generally Of course we had the usual quantity of stimulating things which belong to a firstclris filling7 outfit and to tell the truth about the matter I had been pulling away at the jug and popping beer bottles until Iwas just a little shaky After we had been out about a week I began to sec things that a man under that snakes were plentiful in that sec I was just in this condition one morn ing when I rolled out of my cot to begin the days sport The sun had been up for some time My booty were standing beside the cot where I had put them the night bcforc In throwingmy legs over the side of the cot I knocked both boots over You can guess how I felt when two or myIMy nerves were in no condition to be tampered with I couldnt get lout of the cot and I couldnt stay in I simply felt like melting into thin air One of my friends witnessed the whole thing although I did not know it at the time Iwas ashamed to say anything about the snakes until he the up Finally he saidsoiiietliingabout- the snakes that had spent the night in my boots and Ill swear to you I never felt better in my life for up to thattime I was very much in doubt about the genuineness of the vision I was glad to know that the snakes were real live snakes A MISERS EXPERIENCE An Attempt at Economy That Turned Out Somewhat Disastrously There is much amusemenfcin Dresden parliamentary circles says the jokeIquestion although somewhat miser ly is very popular llcccntly he injured his linger and not caring to consult his own doctor sought the advice of a brother member an M D who told hini what to do On the following day however the old gen tleman received a bill for ten shil lings from the doctor for medical at tendance In his perplexity he con fided in another colleague a lawyer this time who pointed out his lia bility and advised him to pay the billThe aged members astonishment cane imagined when he received later the lawyers claim for ten shillings for advice given He indignantly complained to a third member Of this unBrotherly treat ment but this third gentleman entering into the joke brought the matter before the committee which decides personnel differences of the members Here the case turned against the accuser and he was im peached for refusing to acknowl edge justified claims and gravely scntencedtobuya ease of chain pagne The expensive finger is now

opening of the several branches of the supreme court of the District of Columbia When a justice enters his court room all persons who may he pre entri5c nd including his honor remain standing until the crier has announced in sing song manner tothose persons having business before the honorable justice that the court is now sitting Of late says the Washington Star in opening some of the courts the criers have been adding to the stereo typed announcement the words God save the government of the United States and this honorable court As the criers were unfamiliar with the extra sentence some ludicrous mislakes were made at the start Only a short time ago one of the at taches got rather mixed and instead of repeating the foregoing said God have mercy on t his court This caused so much merriment that the crier hastened to make acor reef iop which helpedsome although it was not the proper one The practice of all standing in time court room as the justice enters has obtained locally just a few years It is understood that the moVomnt was inaugurated by Mr Tracy L Jeffords when he was assistant United States attorney for the District of Colum bin under Mr Arthur A Bjrncy Mr Jeffords made it a rule to rise from his chair in court when the justice ap veered and soon the other attorneys begin to follow suit The custom is nowgoncral Time practice is similar to that prevailing in the supreme court of the United States and is considered dignified expression of courtesy and respect In the courts throughout the country for the most part the sheriff or outer official simply an flounces that court is open At Marls born it is stated the judge opens court Ijy Tapping on his desk with a gavel and calling for order Th justices of the United States supreme court and of some of the courts of New York wear black gowns while on the bench The adoption of sucha costume by the justices of tho supreme court of the District of Columbia has been suggested and it is said that several of the members of the court arc in favor of the innovation As to court criers the tenrof appropriation to pay such officials was cut out of the bill by one house of congress several years ago a back woods representative arguing that a court crier was a luxury not to be tolerated by his vote The item was restored however in conference and the criers survive TRIED TO PROVE ASSAULT Colored Woman Overacted Her Part in Court Scene Some people who appear in the police court resort to queer means in an attempt to convince the judge that they have been dangerously as saulted an attorney remarked to a Washington Star reporter The judges however are up to all the tricks and it is seldom if ever that they are fooled the speaker added Two colored women got into a dispute time other day and it resulted in one of them having the other ar rested ona charge of assault and when the case was called in the po lice court the one who caused the ar rest of the other after taking an oath to tell the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth declared that the defendant had struck her on the head Did you have a physician in attendance the court asked noticing that the witness had her head bandaged up No sir she answered but I was badly hurt Let me sec the wound the court asked at this point There isnt any wound the woman replied But why is your head wrapped up U1 was struck so hard that Ive had the headache ever since writhe replyIThe case was disposed of at this point by the chafge bcirig dismissed by the judge who decided that the facts did not warranta conviction the

Rapidly Pushed But the Session will go Into Next Week THE BISHOP A PLEASING OFFICER It is not our intention to flatter or to pay an unjust compliment but stating plain facts as we see them we can truly say that the Louisville Con ference of the M E Church South now in session in this town is as telligent a body of men as the great business meetings of any denomination are able to assemble Whilst the Methodist Church does not demand as a prerequisite to entering of the try a collegiate education yet it recI- ognizesits worth its power Probably no other religious body is making greater progress along this line and the intelligence in length breadth and depth as represented in this gathering is a high tribute to its attainments The days for the unlearned Minister are fast pissing away the field for his services are likewise disappearing Facilities for gaining knowledge and the incentive for its acquisition have so thoroughly impressed the thoughtful mind that but few in any profession are willing to aspire for leadership without first seeking the advantage of a collegiate education or a special training in the line of their profession- or calling We note with pleasure that this Conference in general appear ance in ability and zeal is the equal of any representative assemblage of its size found in any country The tendency and efforts of all religious organ izations are to bring out and the strongest Ministry possible Some of the greatest minds in every ageI have shed their luster in expoundIng- the scriptures and no age equals ours in the display of extraordinary ability devoted to this the highest and most exalted calling or profession within the of human attainments No one but a narrow pessimist could speak rogatorily of the ability and worth of the individuality of the members that comprise this Conference Its all following is the important busi of the session up to the time we go to press The Conference was convened at the courthouse

Morrison is a very pleasing presiding officer and the ministers and delegates are perfectly delighted with the courteous manner in which he is pushing the business- THUESDAY MORNING A roll call showed

fact that the Conference Endowment fund at present amonnte to over 828000 which Is so invested as to be safe and yielding fair returns Rey Woodman publisher of the Central Methodist was introduced He

young than to appear before the Conference and state big beliefs in the doctrines of the church to clear himself from the charge of ignoring church authority to set forth his position He appeared and made an explanation full an satin factory his ordination as a local minister was ordered there being only one negative vote Mr Moorman1 statement was impressive setting forth the belief tbat he was intensely in earnest and desired to do the will ol his Master and to stay under the juris diction of the Methodist church The Bishop delivered a charge admonishing the young man of the importance and the consistency of staying within th limits of his obligations as set forth in the discipline Quite a discussion arose over the re port of the committee rejecting the petition of Samuel A McKay to be admitted to the ministry A motion was made to over rule the Committees report but this was headed by a mo tion to protect the Committee by re committing the question which met theapproval the entire delegation It was recommitted and in the face of additional and satisfactory evidence he was received- A resolution was offered and passed relieving the Examining Committee from examining applicants

to their work brought out the in formation that a large per cent of the churches are in a fine condition spiritually and financially Mr John L Wheat layman of a Louisville church was requested to make a statement concerning the condition of his charch and when asl ed by the Bishop what is most needed he replied More religion more religion a stronger desire to give money for the extension of church

touched on the knees They steal sugar according to the nursery legend and will simply have a fit if you should scrape the ends of your fingers over their knees The bot tom of the foot or the palm of

subjects too were reasonably sensitive 1 cannot say that they were not thin skinned to some extent for I know that many of them were But they wcrenot ticklish As arule the man who seskin is thin is the ticklish min but there are the usual exceptions to matterinvolvingand if persons are unusually ticklish I guess it is duo to the factvthat the sense of touch is more keenly de fVeloped at the

little chap snaps up right off the board in front of the hive The spotted flycatcher a charming summer migrant whose pretty nesting and feeding habits I have watched with great interest and whom have

over Instead of destroying the useful in sects the birds are actually helping the workers And so they are the best friends of the beekeeper The error of attributing the destruction of working bees to
