Senator; Berk, of Kentucky, was
ahkwl about liU viown on civil service
reform, tlm oilier day, and lie made
answer aa follows:
'I eliould perhaps takn more intrr-
est in the. matter if I hd not watched
llm career of young men who have
come to Washington during the aix-
tnen years I have Wen there. They'
lose their manhood trying to keep in
or to get hack, and in ten yearn are
worse off than if they had gone, like
my son, to a ranch or breaking stones
out here in the street I am sorry to
have any young frienda of mine want
to go to Washincton, hut they get het
on it and go they will. They wenr
swallow tail coats and all that is grand,
but it doesn't amount to a d ."
Commenting on this emphatic utter
ance of the Kentucky Snnator, the Suit
Lake Tribune very aptly said: "Every
young man who feelH a craze for office 1
growing within him xhould read the
foregoing. He should then parte it in
his hut and p-od it daily until he com
mits it to memory, and every time the
evil spirit returned to him he should
exorcise it by repeating the above.
When a man is culled upon by his fel
low men to occupy an honorable oflice
and ho is snre the call is made because
the evidence? which his past life sup
plies that he will use the oflice, if he
obuins it, as a trust for the people,
unless ho has good reasonR to the con
trary ho should accept. But when a
you lip man who has done nothing as
yet to prove his manreod and his
worth, gets to think that he must have
an office, he is on the direct road to
ruin. He, in fact, announces his will
ingness to get into a groove and to fol
low it until he cannot get out, and if
he after a while is tossed out, he is lost.
He cannot once in a hundred times re
gain tho place which be lost when he
took the office. His courage is broken;
his horizon is contracted"; his eyes have
grown perverted, and obstacles which
before ho would have smiled at now
take on collossal forms. A false pride
has been engendered. If a Wfty '
opened for him through which, bf be
ginning at th? bottom round, he might
mount upward and soon be in the sun
light of prosperity, that pride whispers
to him that after holding the official
position which was once his, it would
lie a humiliation to accept such service,
and he has no longer the courage to
conquer himself. For a yonng man to
acquire thirst for office it only one ro
move above possessing an insatiable
appetite for opium smoking."

was innocent, and that it was a put up

Company have just completed two
first-class snow sheds at Pyle canyon,
one of which is 9C0 feet long, and the
other 500. A third shed is being
erected at the sa.tie point. The grade
has been widened and the track moved
out from the emliankments where the

A special dispatch from Akron, O.,
of Octohqr 29th, says: Two days of ex
citement has stirred up the enterpris
ing town of Peninsula, twelve miles
from here, and the wildest scenes hate
been the order on the streets to day.
The populace round about has gathered
in the place as though a fair was lieing
held, on account of a desperate effort
to keep life in the body of Anton
Pfaus, a German about 40 years old.
Pfuus sent his little boy on Tuesday to
a drug storo for quinine, but instead
the clerk by mistake gave h:in mor
phine. Pfaus took five grains of the
deadly drug and Roon became violently
sick. At last the neighlwrs were
aroused and despernte efforts made to
keep the breath in tho sick man. The
physicians attempted to make him
vomit, but his stomach refused to give
up its contents.
Wednesday morning physicians from
Akron were culled and found Pfuus in
a slate of narcosis, the punils of his
eyes being contracted so that they had
almost entirely disappeared. When
the physicians arrived Pfaus was being
run up and down a half mile stretch as
fast as two attendants could drag him
along. Every man, woman and child
in town was upon the streets. Busi
ness w suspended and the, oourse had
tho appetranoe of a foot race lieing
held. As soon as two men had cov
ered the courso two other men took up
the subject and trotted him to the
other end of the track. Fully 100
men were engagej in thin exercise,
which was kept up for ten hoars, when
Pfaus began to show alight signs of
consciousness. .Electrio batteries were
applied in a vigorous manner, and, oc
casionally, in making the run, the sick
man was set upon his head and held
in that position for some time. Then,
falling into the hands of more excita
ble men, he was rolled about on the
iround and pounded till his flesh was
badly bruised. At lust ho began to
utter somo sounds, and the first words
spoken were a challenge to fight the
crowd, but his fathful friends hustled
his limp body over the street until res
piration was quite easy, when he was
taken from the street to his house,
having run many miles.
While hunting horses the other day
on Jones creek, Rays the Grant's Pass
Courier, Antoine Bocker encountered
a black bear, which was disposed to
dispute his rig lit of way. Mr. Becker
being a liberal man, and thinking bruin
might be hungry, threw his lunch at
him, but he would not go. He then
threw a rope at him, when the animal
showed fight. Becker took refuge be
hind a log and awaited a further at
tack, which was soon made by the bear.
With nothing to defend himself with
but a small pocket-kuifo, Mr. Beckor
prodded the bear a few times in the
neck, and finally made his escape.
These animals are quite plentiful this
year, and seemingly enjoy themselves
having a good time with the boys.

It is estimated that the 4 50 China
men who sailed from Portland, Wed

erage $500 apiece, making a total of
$225,000. This is money taken out of
the United States never to return, and

A Boston special of October 29th
says: A net ol gJU was made iiy a
party of Harvard students a few fays'
ago that one of their ' titinihei,', Cf'fS?
Tyler of '86, could not walk from, CV
bridge to Worchester, forty-four miles,' :
in twenty hours. The bet was taken
and to day was set for the trial. Tyler'
is a large man, weighing 200 pound
The betters accompanied him. The
start was made at 4 A. M. Unknown'
to Tyler, his friends procured some'
large posters bearing in bold letters the'
following inscription: ,
Attention, all I Worchester's winged'
wonder will pass through this place to ,
day on his great walk from Boston to'
Worchester for Ihe championship of.
New England. Be ready to receive
Just before reaching the towns
through which he was to pass, Tyler's,
friends would drive ahead and post one
of the notices in a conspicuous place,,
and when the walker arrived his en-'
trance into the town would be greeted
with warmth, a reception which, whilo
gratifying to his sense of vanity, was
most annoying to his rapid progress.
At last accounts the would-be cham
pion of New Engknd was wending his
weary way in a driving rainstorm tow
ard his destination.
How lo Bake Money.
Some papers are not of much account
as to appearance, but I never took one
that did not pay me, in some way,
more than I paid for it.
One time an old friend started a lit
tle paper away down in southwestern
Georgia and sent it to me, and I sul
scrilied just to encourage him, and after
a while it published a notice that an
administrator hid an order to sell sev
eral lots at public outcry, and one of
the lota was in ray county. So I in
quired about the lot, and wrote to my
friend to attend the sale and run it up
to $50. He did bo, and bid me off the
lot for $30, and I sold it in a month '
to a man it joined for $100; and so I
made $68 clear by taking that paper:
My father told me that when he was
a young man he saw a notice in a paper
that a school teacher was wanted away
off in a distant county, and he went
there and got the situation, and a little
girl was sent to him, and after a while
she grew up very sweet and pretty,
and he fell in love with her and mar
ried her. Now, if he had not taken
that paper, what do you think would
have become of met Wouldn't I have
been come other fellow, or may lie not
at all! Lowell Courier.
Frank James, the ex-bandit, recently
played a practical joke. A Kansas
man had an enemy and wanted him
killed. He wrote to James and asked
him to do the job. Ho offered $100.
James accepted and tho Kansas man
came to see him. All the arrange
ments were made and the money put
up. Then James told the. man that he '
had reformed and would not do the
join, He threatened the fellow with
arrest if he dil not let his neighbor
alone and made him promise to keep
the peace and mind h'H own business.
