Last Saturday I drove from Ililldale,
IoTva, to Tabor. It was only eight
miles, and it wasn't so awfully cold. I
Pomewherc between an inch and an '
inch and three-quarters below the j
dot; but as I had breathed the balmy
air of Wisconsin only a week before
at 32 degrees below the belt I didn't
mind a little thing like that. But
Monday morning 1 made a drive of
twelve miles across the country from ,
Tabor to Malvern. A young student
of Tabor college, Gilbert Brooks, !
took me down, because he knew the i
roads of the country and the ways of
Iho blizzard. Now, when it blows
out in this land it blows. It doesn't i
slop for the cold and it doesn't stop to j
inquire the way. It blows a thousand j
miles a minute, and if it find a snow- j
drift located not to suit it, it just
moves the drift into a new place, and I
sweeps the old ground perfectly baro
of snow. And cold ? Tho hot bricks !
froze to our feet, lcs3 or more. Vo j
rattled over the rough, frozen roads
where the ground was bare, then we
would plunge into snowdrifts up to .
the horses' corsets, and all the time !
the pitiless wind, sweeping all the j
wa down from Alaska, whirled tho ,
light snow into our faces and searched
out every crevice and wrinkle in
blanket and ulster. Shade of tho j
(;iwi twuix; ucui, uui iu iua tuiu;
And as far as the eye could reach
across the great whiiedrif ted prairies,
the snow went sweeping, whirling
into fantastic circles, rising in great
gyrating columns, combing over like
ocean breakers: mile after wintery
mile the Arctic dance went on, and ,
tne gnostiy squadrons ot tneirozen
north went charging over theso
measureless plains, and ever the
fierce sweep of the sibilant, hissing
winds, for there is no forest here for
them to sing and roar through. Time
and again tho horses turned their
heads away from the fierce onset of
of the snow and blast, and only tho
skillful driving of my comrade kept
them in the road and "laid in the
leads." Tho only living souls wo
saw in those twelve miles of storm
and cold were three little country
children going to school ! two boys
and a little girl. That's Western
stock for you. As wo passed them
the boys hailed uschecnty: "Mister,
gimme a ride!" That's boy all
Then getting from Malvern to
Council Bluffs, I stayed in tho
Wabash railway station all day,
fraternizing joyously with the tramps
in the common comfort of a red hot
stove and waiting for a train. There
were good hotels only a square away,
but bless you, you couldn't have
pulled me away from that stove with
a stump machine. All trains late.
Nothing in on tho "Q," the "cannon
ball" stuck in the snow down at
Ilumeston. The belated brakeman,
on a stray freight waiting for orders
and a thaw, said he thought I might
go down on 22, if she went on 18's
time, get off at the "Y" and catch
the four sixteen passenger down the
branch and meet G7 at the sidcing
when she came up on construction as
far as bridge 34, and then jump the
gravel for tho junction, and make
second 1G or extra 10, he couldn't say
which, as far as the slow board at the
"Q" crossing, and then I could run
wild and get to tho Bluffs on 2. "Two
what?" says I. "Two legs," says
he, and honestly I think that is the
way I would have gone, if Wabash
mail hadn't thawed out in time to
land me in Council Bluffs, just in
time to freeze my ear, which I did,
walking from tho opera house to tho
U. P. dummy for Omaha. Come out
and freeze up with the country.
Abraham Lincoln wrote a small,
The handwriting of General Grant
is easy to read.
Andrew Johnson's handwriting was
large and labored. Ilis fingers
seemed all thumbs.
Zachary Taylor wrote with a blunt
pen, with few flourishes and no at
tempt at ornamentation.
John Tyler, next to Garfield, was
the best writer among tho Presidents.
Ho wrote a clear, legible, open hand.
Martin Van Buren did not like to
write, but when he did sign his name
it was in large, round characters.
Franklin Pierce was tho worst
writer of all the Presidents. His
writing was not pretty, but it could
bo easily read.
The handwriting of William Henry
Harrison was classic. He was a man
of varied accomplishments and wide
No ono would ever be able to coun
terfeit the handwriting of Rutherford
B. Hayes. He never made tho same
letter the same way twice.
James Buchanan was proud of his
handwriting. He prided himself on
his punctuation, spelling and tho
elegance of his style of composition.
James K. Polk made a signature
which looks like copper-plate. Every
line of it is well made, and there is a
flourish under it which would do
honor to a writing-teacher.
Among the brilliant jokes recently
evolved by the American humorist
are these: "A plumber never uses a
plumb." "Nor docs a barber use a
barb nor a tailor a tail. If a tailor
never, never uses a tail, his coats
must be all roundabouts.
A Juvenile "Jew le Spirit."
"Children and fools tell the truth,"
I have heard, and certainly children
have a faculty of working the truth
in at the wrong time. Truth is a good
thing in its place. But the great
harm comes from using it at an inop
portune time. I am the only and
original father of one of the class of
children who are loquacious and
truthful in a way that makes the
parent heart bleed sometimes. If
this little incident did not happen to
make me its victim, I would scorn to
tell it, for people ought not to make
themselves or their children too con
spicuously smart in print.
Guests" were invited to dinner,
and while in my baronial hall the
welkin rang and the cold baked
bean was passed around amid jo3ous
laughter, and witty remarks rang out
on the warm air, while the gorgeous
flagons and glittering cut glass and
silver of a neighbor shone resplendent
beneath the mellow light of tho chan
delier and candelabra, the humble
writer of these lines, as the host,
would ever and anon make a brilliant
remark which would bo received
with wild and Jlumultuous applause.
If a guest sought lo evade his 'duty
as an applauder, or to come in on
time with his or her welcome plaudit,
that guest was marked by the eaglo
eye of the carvist, and he was given
the neck of the turkey and tho wing
of the duck as a mark of respect.
Habitual gucsis at my houso have
learned this, and whcnl ladle out the
gravy and a " Jew do sprit," as A.
Ward called it, the' know that they
can take their choice between bois
terous laughter and starvation. In
this way the meal passes off with
much eclat. For each sla"sh of tho
carving knife there is a suitable joke,
and thope who have been in the habit
of eating at my table are aware that
there is a proper moment for mirth,
just as there is for napkins, finger
bowls or coffee.
I do this partly because I want to
draw attention from my carving. My
carving is like my dancing. It is not
conventional. It is extremely orig
inal, bold and audacious. I try to
introduce joints where nature did not
intend to have them, and I seek lo
make short cuts across a fowl in a
way that is productive only of cha
frill, vexation and fragments of hen.
Tun is a weak, fallible creature, a:nl
he ought notto seek lo monkey with
tho anatomy of a fowl or to impro
vise joints and apertures where they
do not belong"; for at such, time as
you think not the knife will slip, and
and it will tip over the celery-glass
and fill tho bosom of a warm person
al friend with gravy.
To attract attention and keep up
the spirits of the company, therefore,
I make it a kind of business, as it
were, lo fill the air with harmless
amusement at the same time that I
shed btufiing through the atmosphere
and mutilate the bosom of the hen.
This gives mo on opportunity occa
sionally, to gather up the sage, bread
crumbs and gizzards out of my lap,
and return them to the platter with
out exciting remark.
A few weeks ago on an occasion of
this kind, a cousin of mine a young
lawyer connected with the Omaha
road, a young man of good parts, and
whose business it is to stand between
the Omaha road and substantial jus
tice, at so much a year and traveling
expenses was present.
1 had just said something smart to
keep tho company good-natured while
I asked a young lady at tho other
end of the table to please return the
duck which I had inadvertently pre
sented to her with the carving fork
stuck in it. Everyone was laughing
joyously and trying to conceal it by
putting their napkins hi their mouths
when my cousin turned to my little
daughter and said :
"Bessie, haven't you got a funny
papa, though ?"
"Yes, indeed," said the ungrateful,
unfilial and irreverent heir apparent
to a great name ; "'OU better believe
he's funny when wc have company."
And yet people wonder why I am
not the same genial host that I used
to be, and why the children do not
cat at the first table, and why Ihcrc
is a sound of kicking against tho door
of an adjoining room, and the occa
sional wail of a hungry child as tho
Eli Perkins once told me that he
was teaching his little girl to tell the,
truth. I asked nun who he employed
to attend to the irksome task, and
whether he was not rash to take up
a branch of tho science for which
there was getting to be so little use.
It is said that truth is mighty and
will prevail. It is certainly mighty
in the mouth of a child. Still, wc
may always expect moro or less of it
' from children until they get to mov
ing in good society and learn better.
That Dirty Dandruff.
Dandruff is dirty and disagreeable
in every way. It soils the clothing

hatclly less annoying sensation of

Tho Amount of "Water Trees Absorb.
Dr. J. M. Anders, in a geological
survey report, gives the results of his .
ipjiuirv as to the quantity of water
pumj2j"om the earth by trees. He-"
finds Vhat the average exhalation
front soft, thin-leaved plants in clear
weather amounts to about one and a'
quarter ounces Troy, per day of
twelve hours, for every square foot of
surface. Hence a moderate sized
elm raises and throws off seven and
three-quarters tons of water per day. i
In the report the facts are applied to ?
what is going on in America, where-,
certain inland fertile districts are be-. ,
coming converted into deserts by
wholesale clearings; and in other,
places, such as the plains of Colorado,!
where only five or six years of irriga
tion and planting has already pro
duced a measurable incieasc of rain
fall. It is maintained thatthc deserts '
of Syria and Africa are the results of ,
cutting down trees, and that original
luxuriance may be restored by skill
ful rep'anting." '
