There are no chi'dren in the whit
house now. says a Washington letter
to the Chieafro Icier Ocesn. It is tht
first administration since that of Bu
chanan where there have not been cbii
dren in the president's family. Lincoln
had three boys when he came to the
white house, and the Christmas festi
al was celebrated with enthusiasm in
the good old-fashioned way with a
Santa Claus. -Grant had his three bovt
and the pretty Xellie to make merrv at
Christmastime. Hayes had a complete
domestic household, with romping boy
and. a winsome little girl, who hap
jrrown to womanhood and has recently
been spending--her honeymoon at th
white house, where sbe was a child. ..
1 Garfield and Arthnr had children 1c
celebrate Christmas, and Cleveland ir.
the last year of his first administra
tion had a baby girl to make Christmas'
for.- Harrison a -children were g-rowi!
to ' manhood, tivrt he had hisr grand
children with him in the white house,
and Jlaby McKee became a more rele
lira ted character in the child history ol
the white house than any since Ted Lin
coln. In Cleveland's second administra
tion there were two little girls towel-
come Rinta Clans. There are pictures
of two beautiful babies in Mrs. McKin
lev s room and many fonrt rrmem-
bfaTlcea of them, but they sleep in th
old graveyard ot Capton, where thi
were buried many years ago. ,

. vAinonp a handful of small change
which a young business man pulled out
of his pocket in a St. Charles street
c'gar store was a well-worn nickel in
.. hirh a heavy gold rhig had been in
serted. "Ut'i merely a Im-k piece," he
explained iu res tonne to the question
of a bystander, "and I keep it because
on one occasion it probably saved my
life.- 1-was in Philadelphia several
years agg," he continued, "and had oc
casion one day to call on a gentleman
who had liia oflice on the fourth floor of
a targe buaiuesi blorlc - ' ' 1
"After leaving him I was standing ill
the hallway waiting for the elevator to
come up. whan this nickel, which 1 was
turning between tuy lingers, slipped out
ot my hand and rolled downstairs to the
next landing. 1 was at lirst inclined to
let it go, aa the clevutur just then ar
rived, but on secoud thought I told the
boy iuside that I would walk, and start
ed dow n to recover, the coin. Before I
had 'descended5 haH a 'doreu steps-1
heard a tremendous i tishing sound, like
a Ion of coal tearing down through a
chute, followed by three deafening ex
plosions and a dull crash. The elevator
had fallen and the three.rrports.were
caused by the blowing out of the glass
doors on each floor sh it shot past. The
crash, of course, was the noise of its
wind-up in the sultcelkir.
"The thing was no sudden and unex
pected that it left me. momentarily
paralyzed with consternation. Then I
ran downstairs, uud noticing something
bright on the landing stooped mechan
ically and picked it up. It waa my lucky
nickel, but for which I would have ln-en
at that moment considerably' nearer
earth. The elevntor boy was fatally
injured. I had the coin market with
this ring to keep it front getting mixed
with other nickels." N. O. Times-Herald.

very drsiroiik to go and have a day's
shooting with a friend, but he knew
that immediately the native whowef '
at work on the plantation got wind that
he wasawar thev would not do a stroke
of work. l!o wub he to get off? . Thf
was the question. After much thought
an idea struck htm. doing up to the
men he addressed them thus: "Al
though 1 myself will be absent, yet I
shall leave one of my eyes to see that
you do your work." And. much to tbe
surprise anil bewilderment of the na
tives, he took, out the glass eye arii!.
placed it on the stump cf a tree and lefj.
For some time thr natives worked like
elephants, now and then casting fur:
tive glances at the eye to see if it werr
still watching, but at last one of them!
seizing his lin. in w hich he carried his
food, approached the tree and gently
laced it over the eye. ' As soon as they

State Chemist, Oregon Agricultural College,
Dear Sir We send you by this mail sample of sulphur taken from our
stock of spray material. Please make a careful analysis of same and inform
us if it is of such standard of purity that it will fill all requirements for mak
ing first class spray compounds. If it is not sufficiently pure for such purpose
please inform us where we can obtain sulphur which will meet all require
ments. Very respectfully,
, A. C. MARSTKRS & CO.

Mr. A. C. Marslers &. Co., -
""Gentlkmen: Your letter concerning sulfur and the sample of sulfur,
have beeu received.
I have examined this sample aud find that it is almost entirely pure
sulfur. I think that it would auswer the purposes very satisfactorily for
spraying cr mpouuds or iu$ecticides. I think that if you have pleuty of this
quality, or can get it, that it will be as good as any sulfur that we can obtaiu
for spraying materials. " ., Very truly yours,
A. L. KNISELY.
