An important decision has been rendered by the Secretary of the Inter ior on the appeal of James R. Daniel, involving the right to purchase certain forfeited lands in the La Grande district. He holds that the purchaser is entitled to purchase a technical half section of such land when so surveyed, irrespec tive of the actual acreage, but if the land lies in different sections the acerage must then approximate 320 acres. The Secretary also decided that lands here tofore patented to The Dalles Military Road Company were originally granted the Northern Pacitic Railroad Company, and that the patents were without authority. He orders the institution of proceedings looking to their cancella tion. In the Senate the Finance Committee presented a report from tho Treasury Department in response to a resolution for information as to tho probability of a deficiency in the revenues of the gov ernment. The report shows the deficit for the lirst three months of the current fiscal year is over $21. 000.000, or at the rate of over $84,000,000 for the entire year. It shows the usual expenditures of the first three months were over $08, 000,000. At the same rate the expendi tures for the vear would aggregate about $34,000,000, or about $21,000,000 more than the estimated expenses, and would nhow expenditures over the supposed actual receipts of over $77,000,000. The Secretary says a definite forecast for the whole year would be impossible, but it is apparent that should the present conditions continue, the deficit at the end of the year will be about $50,000, 000. Senator McPherson, for the Senate Committee on Coinage, presented a statement from Secretary Carlisle, show ing that the estimated receipts of public revenues submitted to the last Congress for the present fiscal year was $405,000, 000, not including the postal service, and the estimated expenditures, also excluding the postal service, was $307, 000,000, shawing an estimated excess in receipts of $32,000,000 for the year. The estimate shows average monthly receipts of $33,750,000 and average ex penditures of $31,000,000. The actual receipts so far during the year do not reach the estimated figures by over $7,000,000 per month. The Secretary attributed the falling off to the finan cial disturbances, lie says a careful inspection of the figures will show the deficiency is due to the falling off in the revenues and not to an increase in expenditures.

It" TIiiiukIiI That thn Hlg Man of tha Hlilp A l with tha I. k lUnilt. He w.-ut pacing the promenade deck of an ocHii steamer. One of liis eycit wan blackened, and his red nose and nwollcn features wore a careworn expression. The bref.i- played gently with tho tails of hi long ulster, and lie could scarcely keep Iim feet. A Hiidden lurch of the ship crit him Apniwiing ou the deck in front of one of the pn-HM'iigi r who helped him up and ahki'd hi in if he were sick. "No, my friend," he answered gravely, "but I'm afraid I've made a big mistake. Ever crowd the ocean before?" "Two or three timea," wiih the modest answer. "Well, then," liccontinued, "perhaps you can tell mi; whether 1 was rightor wrong." "How ww It?" "Well, you see It was this way. The other day 1 was appointed United States consul ton little port over here across the pond. I'm on my way there now. I took cahin passage on this hont and I was hav ing a tiptop time until today. This morn ing I had just sat down to breakfast when a big waiter came up behind me, and said he, 'I beg pardon, sir, but the captain re-qii'-sts that you be seated at his table.' 'What's that?' said I, 'sit at the captain' table. Not much, sir. I'm no plug of a common sailor. I'm a United States con sul. I paid for first clang p.issac on this craft and I'm going to have first class grub. " 'Sit at the captain's table! You must be crazy, man. No, sir, I'm going to sit right here and take my meals like the other first class passengers. I'm a gentle man. I'm an Americau sovereign, sir. and I stand on my rights. The next thing you'll want me to go down and take pot luck with the coal heavers. I'm no steer age passenger. If you don't lielieve it here's my ticket. I don't eat with sea captains, do yiu see?' "Everybody at the table began to look astonished like, and the waiter said: 'I'm sorry, sir, but orders is orders. I wouldn't dare tell the captain that you had refused to come to his table. He would be much iuiuJud, sir.' 'Then let him get insulted said I, getting a bit riled. 'It's none of his business where I sit. I don't have to eat with rny social inferiors. I'm going to sit right here, and if you don't take your band off my shoulder I'll pate y , i emu right be tween the eyes.' " 'But you don't understand' he be gan, and put bis hand on me again. With that I got up and hit him. He struck back and we clinched, rolled over on the floor and gouged each other. A lot of the waiters ran up and parted us. I got up and left the room without any breakfast. Just as I went out I heard somebody re mark that I was the biggont fool that ever stepped off dry land. 'Now tell me, strangnr, is a man a fool because he stands up for his rights?' " 'Certainly not answered the other pas senger, 'but don't you know that it is con sidered a great honor to be invited to tha captain's table? It is an honor accorded only to people of high social rank or offi cial position. The captain's table is con sidered the finest in the dining room.' " 'In the dining room!' he gasped. 'Then it ain't down in the forecastle! Ah, now I cateh oa. What a tarnal fool I've been, anyhow, I'm going to get the biggest deck hand on board to kick me all over tha ship and then I'm going to my stateroom, and I won't stick my nose outside until we get to Queenstown. Goodby, my friend.' " New York Tribune. Literary Inspiration. "Do you know," said the author, "I am a firm believer in inspiration, and I believe it is far more common among authors than most people suppose. The poets by no means monopolize it. In almost every author's work there are sentences, scenes or cb.tpters that are genuine inspirations, born of the momeut, flashing upon the author's mind without the least warning. In my own case many of the best things I have written have come to me in that way. See here, let me show you how I work," and he took a long blank book from his desk. "This is the kind of a book I write the first drafts of my stories in before hav ing them copied on a typewriter. "You see, I write on only one side of the page, while on the other side you will see occasional lines hastily jotted down di agonally across the page. Those are my 'inspirations and they come about in this way: While I am writing suddenly an Idea will pop into my head, often utterly irrelevant to the particular part of the work on which I am engaged some scene later on iu my story, or it may be only a sentence or two the happy expression of some thought. I turn instantly and jot it down on the opposite page, then go on with my work, and when I have reached the point m my story where my 'inspiration is needed I turn back and copy it. "I used to try to remember these things, believing that when I wanted the sentence the association of ideas would bring it back to me, but I found that unwise. These little 'inspirations,' in my case, are very fleeting, and I have to nail them at once or they escape." New York Epoch. Some Curious Book Titles. In the Sixteenth century we find the greatest extravagance displayed in the titles of books.
