Makers of educational works are oc
casionally reminded that geographical
statements sometimes require change
to conform to existing facts. Pata
gonia was lately wiped out, and in
other parts of South Americaexist con
ditions at direct variance with the
text books. An American merchant,
Bowers, formerly of Boston, but now
residing in lieunos Ayres, recently got
a contract to furnish the schools of the
Argentina Itepublio with text books.
Ho ordered nmny thousands of the
latest ibsuo of tho most revised geog
raphy from the most enterprising pub
lishers in New York. When tho books
came ho looked them over and imme
diately shipped them all back. Whyl
Because these modern geographies rep
resented the Argentine Republic as it
was lifty years ago; and the peoplo
would have been insulted had they
seen what was Baid of them. In the
first place, that country was called the
i'Argentino Confederation," and stands
as such upon most of the maps. The
geographer did not know, probably,
that a bloody war had been fought to
determine that that the Argentine Re
public was not r confederation, but a
nation with a big "N." It is like call
ing the United States "Tho Confeder
ate States of America." Uion again,
Buenos Ayres was put down as a city
of 75,000 inhabitants, when it has
400,000, and is as proud of its prowtli
and greatness as Chicago. There was
not the sign or mention of a railway,
when the Argentine Republic has as
good and extensive a railroad system
as Kansas or Minnesota
Tim Chinese in the various coal
mines about Seattle havo been dis
charged. A largo and enthusiastic
anti Chinese meeting wae held at Seat
tle on the 28th with delegates from la
bor societies all along the sound. Reso
lutions passed call upon citizens to im
mediately discharge all Chinese in
their employ and declare determina
tion to rid tho territory of Chinese
"I was never exactly buried alive,"
said an old clerk recounting his exper
ience, "but I once worked a week in a
store that did not advertise. When I
camo out my head was almost as while
as you now see it. Solitary confine
ment did it."
Summing up tho political situation
in New York, a Jersey City head liner
wrote: "It Loo'ts Like Hill." The
editor is now down on his knees to his
readers because an o was was substitu
ted for an i in the lust word.
Texas boasts that tho present year
is the most prosperous one the has
ever known. Her magnificent Demo
cratic majority of over 130,000 could
not help bringing her good luck.

I was sitting in a room in the Max
well IIoueTwith General N. B. Forrest
several years before his death.
"General Forrest," I asked, "it has
often leen ntid that previous to the war
you were a terror at the poker table.
How much did you ever win on onn
He replied : "I have played a few
heavy games and many a light one: li
New Orleans on ono hand I won $47,
000." " And what did you hold t"
' Three kings and two nines."
1 have always regretted I did not
auk him what his opponent held, but I
did not. He told tho following story,
his eyes filling with tears during its re
cital : " When my wifa and I went to
Memphis after the close of hostilities
wo had $7 20, not a cent more or less.
We spent one entire afternoon ransack
ing an old portfolio hoping to find some
old uncollected account, or ' I. O. U.'
on which I might realize. There wasn't
a thing. I said to my wife : Rhoda,"
you have always been against me and
poker , I never played a gamo since I
first knew you that your absent face
was not a haunting rebuke over ono
shoulder. Now, I have been invited
to Snecd's to a dinner to-night, audi,
know there will be cards. If you'll
give me your blessing this once, my
dear, I feel mighty sure I can como
home a richer man.
" Said sho : ' Forest we've got alonj;
without that, so far as I have known,
and by the Lord's help we'll so on with
" 'Yes,' said I 'but the Lord has been
sjow of late, and seems to be pittin'
slower; what d'yo say to this one
time!" She never consented, but sho
didn't opposo it very strong, and I
promised I wouldn't go over $7 20. It
was just as I expected. Four tables
were running at Sneed's, and I won
enough at fifty cents ante to go in at a
higher table later on. Well, sir, as I
won and I won right from the first
h just dropped the money into my hat
on the floor, and when we broke up at
daylight I put my hat on with the mon
ey in it , without counting it over, and
went home. As I came near to my
house I caught a glimpse from the out
side of my wife's white figure waiting
right where she had waited all night,
pale and anxious, and when I went in
I just took off my hat and emptied
$1,500 in her lap. I felt sorry for her
for sho couldn't bless that night's do
ings ; but, sir it was a great relief to
Caprick or a King. Frau Wolter,
the Austrian actress, who has been
playing before the King of Bavaria,
gives a curious account of her experi
ences. His Majesty ordered tho per
formance for midnight, With the ex
ception of the foot-lights, the house
was pitch dark. Tho King's arrival
and departure were announced by ait
electric signal. He was the solitary,
spectator. Nobody could sea him in
his box, where he remained during tbn
representation, silent and meditat ve.
On the fall of the curtain, he sent her
a nosegay and a jewel as a mark of hu
appreciation, which slip had to acknowl
edge on the spot in a formal lester, dio
tated to her by his Chamberlain.
