T is some time since we have had a
story on Jake Bloch, whilom local
"snort." but here Is another at last
For some months past, Jake has been en
gaged In carving his fortune out of a
city-salesman-for-a-liquor-house Job in
Seattle. He la doing well. Among his
customers Is a leading druggist, whose
trade he secured only after strenuous en
deavor. For a long time Jake had been
trying to sell the apothecary a barrel of
whisky, but the man was coy. One day
Jake looked into the store and saw the
salesman of a rival liquor house appar
ently just in the act of booking the cov
eted order. Jake stared a moment, then
euddenly uttered a loud and awful groan
of anguish and fell to the sidewalk. Out
ran the druggist and tiie rival salesman.
A hackd river and a teamster and two
man also arrived, and the quivering and
moaning Jake was carried into the back
room of the drugstore. He was heard to
murmur "whisky" in a very faint voice,
and the rival salesman dived into his
Ah the drink touched Jake's lips he test
ed it, then began to sputter and choke and
demand with divers expletives what they
meant by offering him molasses and al
cohol. "Haven't you any of Blank & Co.'s
goods?" he asked. Fitting up. "That's
the only kind a drugstore ought to keep."
The druggjst admitted that he had none.
"Too bad," eaid Jake. "Just you pooh
pooh this guy's whisky. You want Blank
& Co.'s XX. I'll book you for a barrel
right now or will you make it two bar
rels?" And ho drew forth his order book.
"I could use a barrel, maybe," said the
astonished druggist, and, in spite of ex
clamations of "Humbug!" "Skin game!"
etc., by the excited rival. Jake booked the
order and went forth about his business
RECENTLY a certain young "Washington-street
cigar-stand clerk won the
coy admiration of a golden-ringleted
beauty. They exchanged glances from
time to time; and as fortune favors flirta
tions, it came abdut that they met and
were introduced by mutual friends. The
flirtation was at once enlivened and car
ried to the extent that the young lady
gave her telephone number and a promise
to see the youth soon again.
A few days later the clerk secured tick
ets to the theater and rang up his charm
er's phone number. The following con

Bob Ingersoll and
How Hie Famous A&rnostlc In
fluenced General Wallace.
About three months ago. Frank G. Car
penter interviewed General lcw Wallace,
for The Sunday Oregonlan, asking among
other things about his great novel. That
part of the talk is here republished:
"No," said General Wallace, "Bob In
gersoll had nothing to do with beginning
'Ben Hur.' but a talk I had with him had
considerable influence upon the story. I
may say it caused me to change the whole
plan and nature of it. The talk occurred
as we were going home from the Na
tional Republican Convention in Cincin
nati, at which Bob Ingersoll had made
his great speech nominating Blaine, one
of the greatest speeches of our history
and of all time. Ingersoll and I left Cin
cinnati on the same sleeping-car. He
had the drawing-room. I was sitting talk
ing with pome men, when he came to the
door in his nightgown and said: 'Is that
you. General Wallace? Won't you come
into my room? I want to talk.'
"I went to the door, and there stopped.
Baying: "I will come In. Colonel, but only
on one condition, and thatiis that I am
to fix the topic of conversation.'
" 'All right,' said Ingersoll. 'What is
"I replied, 'Is there a God?'
"The answer came quick: 'I don't know,
" 'Is there a Heaven?'
" 'I don't know: do you?'
" 'Is there a hell?'
" I don't know; do you? was again the
" 'Was Jesus Christ the Son of God?'
" I don't know; do you?' said Ingersoll
in the same tone.
" 'Well, those are the topics I want you
to discuss,' said I.
"Ingersoll thereupon began to speak. He
went over the whole question of the Bible,
of the Immortality of the soul, of the di
vinity of God and of Heaven and hell. He
vomited forth ideas and arguments, like
an intellectual volcano, overwhelming my
soul with them. He kept this up all the
way to Indianapolis, and the result was
that when I left tho train there I walked
the streets for an hour to quiet myself
before going to bed. Prior to that I had
Jald almost no attention to the Bible or
religion. My life had been full and I had
overlooked matters of the soul. I thtn
decided that these were the great ques
tions for man to study, and also that
every man must investigate them for
lilmself. I began at once to read tho Bible,
devoting my time chiefly to the New Tes
tament and the life and sayings of Christ.
I did not pay much attention to the apos
tles, nor the Gospels, but I did try to
study Christ and his wonts.
"The result was that I came to Relieve
in the Bible. I gave up all doubt of the
existence of a God, and that fact Is as
flrznly settled In my mind as the fact of
jny own existence. I came also to believe
in Christ as the best embodiment of the
Divine Spirit in man and to accept nlm
as my model. This study caused me to
remodel my plan of 'Ben Hur I changed
it throughout, and the whole of the book,
with the exception of the first chapter,
was, you may say, influenced by my talk
General Wallace's work on "Ben Hur"
lasted seven years. He started the book
as a novelette, thinking it might be a se
rial for Harper's Magazine, but became
more and more interested in It as he went
"Why, ain't you Minnie?"
"No, sir! I'm the 'old lady,' Minnie's
mother; and If I had you here, you cheeky
puppy. I'd show you "
ii ON'T care much for gum," said
I Blck, but sometimes I try a sample.
So when I passed that big drug store on
Washington street the other day and saw
the whole window full of nicely-wrapped
packages of gum, and read a big sign,
COME IN AND GET A SAMPLE.
I thought it was a very nice way for the
druggist to advertise his goods. I did
really want a chew Just then, but I re
membered that chances to get something
for nothing don't come every day to any
man until he gets to bo a trust magnate,
so I went in and told the nice-looking
lady that I wouldn't mind having a sam
ple of that gum.
" 'Certainly,' said she; 'which'll you
take 5-cent or 10-cent package?'
"Stung again! Well, I paid 5 cents for
increased wisdom and passed on."
OXJD Uncle Jimmy Elgin, of Salem,
veteran of Indian wars, and a well
known character of the great Valley, who
never had much use for mirrors, came up
to Portland the other day. In the cpurse
of sightseeing he wandered into a big de
partment store and became lost in amaze
ment at the wonders he saw therein. He
felt lonesome and somewhat embarrassed
amidst the busy crowd of purchasers
and worried-looking clerks. Suddenly he
gave a start of pleased surprise.
An elderly man w,as staring hard at him
only a few feet distant.
"Gosh!" exclaimed Uncle Jimmy Elgin.
"Who is that old codger? I know him;
I've seen him som'eres, sure, but I lcaint
just place him. He seems to know me,
too. Guess I'll go over and shake hands
with the old chromo, anyway."
At the same time the other man ad
vanced also, and a second later Uncle
Jimmy Elgin ran plump Into a big mirror.
AS DR. MACRUM came down the steps
from the Hotel Portland the other
evening, he observed the porter with a
truck taking in some of the less hardy
potted plans from the courtyard.
"Going to give up your timber culture
business?" asked the doctor, jovially.
"Not exactly," returned the porter,
pausing to take breath: "but I thought
I'd better clear off my claim before Puter
and his gang filed on It and got It boosted
through the Land Office."

on with his studies of Christ. One of the
remarkable things about it is Its vivid
pictures of Palestine, notwithstanding It
was published before General Wallace
had visited that country. I referred to
this, whereupon General Wallace said:
"I doubt if any novel has ever had more
careful studies for Its background and life
than those made for 'Ben Hur.' I knew
that the novel would be criticised by men
who had devoted their life to Blblleal loro,
and I studied Palestine through maps
and books. I read everything in the way
of travel, scientific Investigation and geog
raphy. I had scores of maps, and worked
with them about me. My best guide was
a relief map of Palestine made in Ger
many.1 This was hung on my wall, and by
means of It I took my characters through
the passes of the mountains and up and
down the hills, measuring their daily
travel by the scale of miles. I also made
studies of the bird and animal life of the
time and place. Indeed, my work of this
"kind was so thorough that I have. I be
lieve, made only one mistake in the
"What mistake was that. General?" I
"It was in the smoking of Vesuvius,"
was the reply. "I had the mountain in
eruption four years before the eruption
burst forth. I afterward looked up tho
date and found it fixed by the time of
Pliny's death. Pliny, you know, went out
to describe the volcano and was never
heard of thereafter. This was four years
later than the time of the Incident men
tioned In my story."
Resigns as Old Man's Guardian.
M. M. Bloch yesterday resigned as
guardian or Louis H. Helner. an in

pointed Fred Bickcl to act in his stead.
Helner is an old German who had $1200
on deposit In the Bank of British Co

about. Recently while Helner was sick
at tho County Hospital a friend found
the certificate of deposit in his trunk.
Helner signed a petition asking that
Bloch be appointed as his guardian.
Subsequently he asked that Blckel be
appointed and the application to havo
Blckel take charge of the old man's
affairs was backed by a number of
German residents Bloch, not desiring
to litigate over such a small matter,
quit, and his bondsmen were exon
