A GREEN ONE.
He Bays a Prairio Dos Town Ter
H 2flnk Ranch.
"There are some mighty green
men in this world," said the pas
senger from the "West, "and I struck
one of 'em a week or two. If I
hadn't I wouldn't be here now.
Last spring I went out into "Western
Nebraska and homesteaded a quar
ter section. I hadn't seen the land,
but took it supposin' it was all right.
But when I got there I found it all
already inhabited. About 150 acres
of the 109 were covered with a
prairie-dog town. "Well, I concluded
to settle down and see what I could
do, and I'm mighty glad now that I
did. About two weeks ago I was up
to the railroad station trying to get
trusted for some bacon and flour and
terbacker, an' feelin' right smart
discouraged. I was out of inoney
and grub, and the winter was com
in' on fast, and I couldn't see any
way out of it but to eat prairie dogs,
and they're mighty hard to catch.
But that day was the turning point
in my luck. "While I was at the
statio'n an Englishman got off the
cars, an' said as how he wjis out
west lookin' for a place to make an
investment. Said he'd heard o' tho
fur business, an' wanted to know
if he was out in the fur country
" 'Furs,' says V there hain't no't'
an' just then an idea struck me,
an' I changed my tune. 'Furs,' said
I, there ain't no" beter fur country
than this on 'arth. Just come out to
my place till I show you my fur
"And he went out with me, an' I
showed him the prairie-dog town,
an', as luck would have it, it was a
bright, sunny day, an' the dogs was
out scootin' around by the hundreds.
" 'Talkin' about furs,' says I 'what
d'ye think of that? I've been six
years growing those mink, an' hain't
sold a hide. It's all natural grease.
Guess they's "'bout seven thousand
of 'em now, an' they double every
year, How many will there be in
"You oughter seen that English
man's eyes open as lie took out his
pencil an' figured it up. He made
it 7,1GS,000 mink.
" 'Well," says I, 'call it o,000,000,
to be on the safe side. It won't cost
$1 to keep 'em, either, an' if they're
worth a cent they're worth $1 apiece.
There's millions in it.'
"Then we got right down to busi
ness, an' in less than an hour I had
sold out for $7,000 cash, an' the next
da' I paid $320 for the jiomcstead at
the Land Office, pot my patent, and
transferred it to him and took the
first train for the East. Step into
Iho buffer with me, partner, an'
take a drink." Chicago Herald.
Iiogan a Crack Shot,

On one ivra-ion a dozen young
men weiu p.::-iung from the piazza
of the Geneia-'s hotel at a bottle
laid on the broad crotch of a distant
tree. The bottle was round. Un
less it was hit plumply in the middle
it spun round and lound like a top.
The young men were good shots, but
now and then they would miss the
somewhat difficult mark. Then the
invalid senator would chaff them.
The young men finally became irri
tated and asked the" general if ho
could improve their skill. After a
little more chaffing the general said :
" I'lltellyou fellows what I will do.
There are twelve of you, but I'll
promise you each a box of cigars
every time you hit tho bottle if
you'll promise mc a box every time
I hit it." J
The boys accepted the proposition
" I'll shoot first, and, if I hit, I'm
to shoot again and again until I
They had no objection, so the gen
eral fired twelve consecutive shots,
each time breaking a different bot
tle, while the young men's eyes
opened wider and wider.
"Do you want any morel" be
asked, after the twelfth shot.
"No," said the young men, hast
ily, " I guess not."
"You can send those twelve boxes
to my room whenever you are read,
gentlemen," said the general, as he
lounged away. " Some day when I
have more leisure I'll give you an
I hour's instruction in target shoot
Bat the boys never held him to
his promise. " They paid their bets,
however, and after that did their
practicing when the general was not
around. Washington Corr. Chicago
Despotism Pure aud Simple.
I suppose there is not in the whole
world a monarch so despotic as the
Burmese emperor. He is considered
by himself and others absolute lord
of the lives, properties and personal
services of his subjects; he exalts
and depresses, confers and takes
away honor and rank, and, without
any process of law, can put to death
not only criminals gnilty of capital
offences, but any individual who
happens to incur his displeasure. It
is here a peiilous thing "for a person
to become distinguished for wealth
and possessions, for the day may
easily come when he will be charged
with some supposed crime, and so
put to death in order that his prop
erty may be confitcated. Every sub
ject is the emperor's born slave, and
when he calls any one his blave he
thinks thereby to "do him honor. To
express their sense of this, subjection
all who approach him are obliged to
prostrate themselves before" him,
holding their hands joined above
their heads. Hence, also, he consid
ers himself entitled to employ his
subjects in any work or service, with
out salary or pay, and if he makes
them any'iecompense it is done not
from any sense of justice, but as an
act of bounty. The goods, likewise,
and even their persons are reputed
his propei ty, and on this ground it is
that he selects for his concubine any
female that may chance to please his
eye. The possessions of all who die
without heirs belong to the king, as
do those of foreigners who have not
married in the countiy, for they are
not allowed to dispose of them", not
even in favor of their illegitimate
Although despotism in its worst
form constitutes, as it were, the
very essence of the Burmese mon
archy, so that to be called its king
is equivalent to being called a tyrant,
still has Badonsachen (usually ie
ferred to as Bcdaw i'ayah), the des
pot a1io for the last twenty-seven
3ears has governed this kingdom, so
far outstripped his predecessors in
barbarity and pride that whoso but
hears of it must shudder with horror.
His very countenance is the index of
a mind "feiocious and inhuman in tha
highest degtoe. Immense is the
number of thoce whom he has sacri
ficed to his ambition upon the most
trivial offences, an J it would not he
an exaggeration to assert that during
his retell mmu victims have fallen
by the hand of the executioner than
by the sword of the common enemy.
To this atiocious cruelty he has
united a piitle at once intolerable
and impious. Exchange.
A Jb'aith Cure.
"Say, wife, w here's that bottle of
cough medicine that cured my cold a
