Copyright, ISO;, by Champ Clark.
When representatives and senators
return to congress fresh from the la
lors of a national campaign, the.v have
many stories to relate nnd divers theo
ries to expound ns to the why and
wherefore of victory or defeat. The
session after the hattle of 1000 was no
exception to the rule.
"Uncle Lon's" Goose Story.
Colonel Lcouidas F. Livingston of
Atlanta, Ga!, ranking Democrat on the
great committee on appropriations nnd
almost universally called "Uncle Lou"
hy his familiars, took a turn at "ex
plaining" n thing to which Democrats
were much given ex necessitate those
Colonel Livingston attributed the an
ecdote to Hon. Alexander H. Stephens,
but 1 am inclined to the opinion that
he originated It himself. However that
may be, the story Is a good one. "To
give n reason why we failed in 1S90
aud again in 1000," quoth "Uncle Lon,"
"I will relate one of Alex Stephens'
yarns, tstepiiens used to say: -nen i
was a hoy, my mother had two geese
which went to sitting in the same
brier patch so close together that their
wings almost touched. One goose stole
all the eggs from the other aud thereby
j had so many that she could not cover
j them nil. When hatching time came,
I both geese were short on goslings, one
because she had no eggs and the other
because she had too many. Moral.
If you want a good crop of goslings,
the mother goose must not Bprend out
too much.' My opinion," concluded
"Uncle Lon," "is that In our platforms
of 1S00 and 1000 we Democrats spread
out too much."
Cheerful Under Difficulties.
Whether Hon. William A. Rodenherg,
formerly of the East St. Louis district,
is any blood relation to Mark Tapley of
immortal and hilarious memory this
deponent salth not. He ought to be,
for his cheerfulness undeu difficulties
entitles him to that distinguished hon
or. Rodenherg was one of the brightest
and most nmiablo Republicans in the
Fifty-sixth congress. In personal ap
pearance he greatly resembles Senator
jonatuan rrouuss uoinver ox xowa. .
Somehow Rodenherg "fell outside the
breastworks" in the melancholy days
of November, 1000, although lie led his '
ticKet by sometiiing close to a thousand
votes. When asked about It, he replied
cheerily: "Statesmen are sometimes
defeated at the polls; mere politicians,
never. Or. as John Allen states it,
'While we are here wrestling with
great measures of state the pesky poli
ticians somehow get In between us
statesmen and the dear people nt
Hodeuberg's pleasantry as to states
men and politicians reminded me of
three of my Democratic constituents
who were candidates against one an
other for the nomination for the legis
lature In 1000. They ban made a
redhot fight In the primaries. When It
was over, all three claimed to lie fully
satisfied and happy ns clams at high
tide. No. 1 wns delighted because he
received more votes thnti the other two
combined, No. 2 wns gratified because
he ran ahead of No. a, and No. 3 was
in high feather because he received
practically the unnnlniotis vote of his
own township. There Is nothing like
being philosophic, especially In politics.
To console the losers who are disposed
to mourn as one without hope, I state
from experience that there are few
things so dreadful hi tho prospect or
bo inconsequential In the retrospect as
defeat for office.
"Private" John Allen's Yarn.
In the cloakroom, shortly after the i
short session of the Fifty-sixth con
gress began, members were discussing
the election of 1900. One said thnt if
the election 1 ad been held the 1st of
October the Democrats would have car
ried Indlnna, Maryland, Delaware, etc.
"Yes," drawled Johu Allen; "If!, At the
the beginning of the Spanish war two
colored soldiers were discussing the
causes leadin; to the war. One snld,
If de Spanynds hadn't blowed up dnt

livered In hi, city In-the 1000 cam

was the most fetching speech heard in
thnt section i f tho state. The perora-
tlon was as follows: "Do Dlmocrats

"That speech," said Colonel Coch
ran, "is equnl to one of JEsop's fables."
Mr. G row's Mot.
Hon. Galusha A. Grow of Pennsyl
vania is well along in years, but he
Is forever young. When I met him the
llrst time nfter we returned to Wash
ington last winter, he said, "Young
man, you are looking unusually well."
I replied, "I have gained twenty-flve
pounds since congress adjourned the
previous summer." He nnswered with
a smile, "That was a great deal for ft
Democrat to gain In the recent cam
paign" which was very neat.
FiUnerald's Great Bluff.
Hon. John Francis Fitzgerald of
Boston disclaims all knowledge of the
fascinating nnd hazardous game of
draw poker, which a Nevada judge
solemnly decided to bo a scientific per
formance Instead of a game of chance.
Fltz may he telling the truth nbout It,
but nevertheless nnd notwlthstnuding
he ran an astounding "bluff" on the
house in the canteen debate last year.
He bitterly opposed the Littletield
amendment, claiming that the selling

That was carrying the war Into the
enemy's country with a vengeance.
Fitzgerald's amendment wbb heard by
some with consternation nnd wns re
ceived by others with applause, in the
midst of which Mr. Chairman Hull
raised the point of order that It was
not germane. Then Fitzgerald pro
ceeded vigorously to argue the poiut of
order. Inter nlla he said: "The gentle
man from Virginia (Mr. Hny) talks
about the bad effect the canteens have
upon the common soldier. He said
their establishment was a constant
source of temptation to the soldiers to
drink. Now, If we are to deprive the
soldier of an opportunity to purchnse
his beer upon the property of the Unit
ed States let us deprive the members
of congress of the same opportunity
and do equnl justice and drive liquor
selling out of this capitol. If, as the
gentleman from Virginia has stated, It
seems discreditable to a large number
of people in the United States to allow
liquor to be sold to the soldiers and
sailors upon the property of the United
States, how much more discreditable
must It seem to allow liquor to be sold'
right here In tho national capitol."
This palpable and vigorous homo thrust
at the saloons In the basement of house
nnd senate was received with a roar.

Speaker Henderson's Mot.
The debate on the Grout oleomnrgn
rlne bill generated much friction nnd
heat In the house. Mr. Wadsworth
of New York was spcaklug against It
nnd to enforce his remarks was
handing small sample packages of
oleomargarine and butter nround
among members In bis immediate vi
cinity. This created great Interest,
nnd members crowded Into the aisle
near him and, Btandlng there, obstruct
ed the vision of other members who
were sitting in their seats. Judge
Burke of Texas arose to a question
of order, whereupon the speaker said
gravely, "When the gentleman from
New York has finished his exhibition,
members will please take their sears."

The Hand In Health.
Let us shake hands with a man nnd
we will tell you something about his
health, says the London Doctor. The
firm, hearty handshake of a sincere
man may be rather rough, so that one
is jaught he has a grip, but it indicates
stamina. While denoting absence of
tact and refinement, it points to phys
ical strength. The flabby hand that
retains no pressure belongs to the per
son who has no great strength of body
or mind. The quick, nervous handshake
of an excitnble, nervous temperament
and its opposite, the nerveless, passive
one, belong to persons in ill health.
The hand that threatens to collapse or
give means fear. The feel of the hand
called magnetic indicates health and
kindness and a desire to help others.

ter by the hand ns well ns the brain.

Ilovr to Feed Cottnnxeed Menl.
It is not wise to feed cottonseed meal
excessively to fattening cattle, says
Professor W. A. Henry In Breeder's
Gazette. This Is done In the south,
where the menl Is comparatively cheap
and corn relatively high. In some of
the feeding establishments nt -the south
fattening steers nre nllowed ten or
twelve pounds of cottonseed menl dally
as their sole grain feed nnd have cot
tonseed hulls Tor roughage. The steers
on this allowance fatten rapidly, but
after eight or ten weeks feeding they
are liable to become blind from the ex
cessive use of this alugle rich feeding
stuff. It is most unfortunate for oue
to feed In this manner. Far better Is
It to mix cottonseed meal and corn
meal together than to feed either one
We have never known of a case of
either first or second growth sorghum
or Kaffir corn Injuring cuttle after be

H. M. Cottrell of the Kansas experi

of a ense of either first or second
growth sorghum or Kaffir corn Injuring
bogs fed either green or dry in nuy
stage of maturity. Sorghum liny Is not
nearly so good a hog feed as either al

these Is avnllable" It will pay to feed
