Homer litvmort Byndlcte) I have read many versions of my first interview with Mark Hannn. Frequently I have read what purported to be the story of iiow I came to put him in dollar mark clothes. All of. them havo shown good imagination on the part of their authors, but are a long way from the truth. I drew my first pictures of Mr. Hannn from a description of the man given me by Alfred Henry Lewis, who had just come from o few day's visit with him in Ohio. It would be unfair to Mr. Lewis to attribute my conception io tno ucscnpiion no gave me. But Mark Hanna's portrait as I first used it was not so much a reproduction of his features as they really were, but as we want ed to show them for political purposes. Lewis told me that when he met him Ilnnna wore a business man's checked suit, and my first picture showed him dressed in this manner. I put dollar marks on his cuff buttons, which, was as stupid a thing as any cartoonist could have done. Then a few days later, in the early part of 1890, I drew a car toon of him in which I wished to convey theideaof "boodle," and put the dollar marks in the open checks of his clothes. The night editor "killed" the cartoon on account of those dollar marks, explaining that he did not see that it added anything to the picture. When Mr. Hearst ar rived at the office about midnight ho saw the cartoon and ordered it run as I had drawn it, the dollar marks being emphasized. A few weeks thereafter I was much surprised .when I saw, but did not meet, Mark Ilanna. that there was plenty of foundation in his features, with the proper amount of exaggeration, to pro duce a face like the one I had been drawing. I was sitting in Senate reception room one day on the still hunt for feature pic tures, with one knee folded high over the other to shield my sketch book. Big game gathered nil about me so closely that I couldn't draw. So I tried to im personate a country constituent, who might be waiting for a reply to a card which he had sent in to his senator. While I was affect ing this disguise an interesting looking old colored man sent in his card to Senator Hannn. Han nn did not know tne by sight and In answering the colored man's card he came into the very corner where I was located. Here, after exchanging warm greetings, tho Senator said: "Well, Dr. Brown of Georgia, you got my last let ter?" "Yes, replied the vener able darky. "Well, Doctor, we have exchanged many letters, but I night hnve gone to Georgia and had hard work finding you. How is it thnt the minute I came into the room you immediately picked mo out?" Tho old color ed man'a features lit up with fifty heretofore unseen wrinkles of expression. He respended: "Senator Hannn, I knew you by your pictures." Whereat there was hearty prolonged laughter, tinged with a slightly grim note on the part of tho Senator. Stop ping the embarrassed darky, Hanna took him by the coat lapel and resumed in a whispering tene: "I hopo it was not through certain malicious nnd vicious pic tures thnt you have recognized me."

The educational value of-this contest as an encouuige- eannot be Mr. Crandall has arranged for the installation of the machine up a few miles above the E. P. Sylvester place. It requires con siderable careful work to install properly in order that the ele ments will have no effect on the working parts of the machine. To prevent the ice from interfer ing a shaft is sunk to the low water mark on the bank of the stream and a large pipe is placed leading from the stream into it. In this the register is instilled and a house is built to accomo date the machinery and it has to be high enough to allow for the rise and fall of the river which varies greatly during a season. A representative of The Times Herald was shown this wonder ful piece of machinery in Mr. McConnell's office the other eve ning and it is worth seeing, A description of it was given by a member of the reclamation ser vico at Boise and the Stateman of last Saturday published this description. It says in part: An iron base about 14 inches square, at either corner of which is an iron rod approximately 21 inches long, supporting an iron top, forms a frame for the regis ter. On the two opposite sides of the base are erected the standards which carry the recording mec hanism and the spools for hold ing the paper strip on which the record is made, together with the carbon ribbon, by which the im print is made on the paper. The recording mechanism con sists of three parallel type wheels an the faces of which aro raised figures and divisions, indicating respectfully the period of time from ono to 12 hours, at intervals of 15 minutes; the number of feet to 30 feet, and the hun dredths of a foot.

The phosphor bronze perforat ed band by which the float is sus pended is guided by pulleys, so that it is impossible for it to get out of place, and it passes through felt lined slats in the base, so that when the cover is placed on the instrument it is absolutely protected from dirt or moisture.
