Sitting in the opera house last
night listening to Democratic cheers
called to mind equally vociferous
cheering on the part of our Demo
cratic brethren two years ago when
Jno. P. Irish was here. On that
ovcningTony Xoltner. the Nestor of the
state Democratic press, came over to
the reporter's desk on the stage, and
asked "Do you hear those cheers?
That means victory later on.' The
following December he happened to be
in the theater one evening, silling
next to the writer. Between acts he
leaned over and said: 4Do you re
member that night last June? How
in is it that we always get the
crowd and the cheers and the enthu
siasm, and when the votes are counted
yoa fellows are ahead?"' That is
a question that has puzzled ihe
greatest minds in all ages and will be
the theme of thought for many years
The solid men of Shauklin, Isle of
Wight, England, have been reading
about Astoria and Seattle andTacoma
and Spokane Falls. Recently there
was a meeting of the inhabitants of
Skanklin 4to consider the best way to
ksc, for the benefit of the town, a let
ter from Mr. Henry Irving, a lecent
visitor to Shanklin; and also how best
to make known the town as a desirable
resort and place of residence." Mr.
Irving, by request, had written "a few
lines of recommendation for the press."
It was suggested that this ought to be
advertised. A doctor thought that ad
vertising was "very good," but that
tke best plan would be to start a chil
dren's hospital. The best way to in
crease the growth of Shanklin was ''to
gret in with the great physicaus.' This
idea was regarded with considerable
favor. Another citizen said "they
oaght to go at it in the same way
they went at it at Yen tor, which was
to get under way with the doctors."
aad lie thought it would be best to
appoint a committee. Finally it was
XB&aixnonsly resolved "that the geu
Ueaaen present form themselves inlo a
committee having for its object the
establishment at Shanklin of a chil-

Chancellor Bismarck and his ances

name of one of those ancient castles a

castle had this name because it

where the river Biese formed a bound
