Delegate Joseph of New Mexico has pro
posed to have the bill admitting his Ter
ritory changed so that admission will
not iccome operative until 1805. For
Utah, Arizona ami New Mexico it is pro
posed to grant them double the amount
of land granted the last Territories to be
admitted. The reason for this is there
were grants made for the purpose of es
tablishing a fund for various institutions,
and it is claimed the lands which the
three Territories now knocking at tho
door will receive are mostly, if not en
tirely, arid and fit for nothing until they
havo been made valuable bv a costlv
system of irrigation, The last six States
admitted received as grants for various
State institutions about 100,000 acres of
land each. The three Territories asking
for admission think thev will need at
least 1,000,000 acres.
Representative Hermann has been in
consultation with the Postoflice Depart
ment as to numerous applications from
his State for contracts to carry tho
United States mails for the next four
vears and for the addition of many
routes not included in the published
proposals. In the course of the inter
view Mr. Hermann represented to the
department how in his State many con
tractors have heretofore bid so low for
the mail service as to bo rendered unable
to comply with the law, and as a result
the people have received wretched mail
convenience. Ho stated to the depart
ment otlioials that should sum low bids
again be accepted he proposes to see that
the contract shall he complied with both
as to the manner as well as the time con
tracted for. He says the people also
complain that contractors sublet at such
low rates as to compel persons to use lll-
fed, overworked ana unsuitable horses
and also cheap and exposed conveyances
and are unable to deliver the mails on
schedule time or in protected condition, j
He believes that the law should be fear
lessly enforced in all cases of fine or
otherwise, and that postmasters should
be directed to report every violation or i
failure of schedule, and they should bo
investigated in any case where they
should fail to make report. He thinks,
if the law were more generally enforced,
reckless and unprofitable bidding for
mail contracts would cease.

Solemnly tho old maa and the
younger man clasped hands and
walked to the edgo of the pool. They
zigzagged a little, but tVy stood upon
the brink of tho pool steady enough,
and banging their bat3 down upon
their heads, they stepped off. The
water was nearly up to their shoul
ders. But hand in hand they waded
tho length of the pool, the bank pres
ident smiling and contented and tho
younger man peering over his silver
bowed spectacles as if in a contempla
tive mood. Not a word did they eay
to each other. The old mans face
wore the expansive smile of childish
delight. The younger man was sol
emnly content They clambered out
of the pool hand in hand, Boaked
from shoulders to heels. The old man
shook the hand of his younger com
rade and said :
"I thank you, sir. Yon have af
forded mo much pleasure."
"All right, old man," said the Yale
graduate. "Any time you want to
wade send for me."
He gave the old man his card, and
as the old mr.n jabbed the limp paste
board into the puddle in his waist
coat pocket he remembered his
watch. He pulled out a massive gold
timepiece. The salt water had
stopped it and probably ruined it.
As he came to this conclusion the
old man said:
"Well, never mind, we had fun.
didn't we?"
Then the two men were tacked off
to the Bteainroom and stripped, and
for two hours they nodded sleepily
at each other while their clothes and
shoes were drying. New York Sun.
Interesting Scenes In Tangier.
Tangier's beauty lies in so many
different things in the monklike
garb of the men and in the white
muffled figures of the women ; in the
brilliancy of its sky and of the sea
dashing upon the rocks and tossing
the feluccas with their three cor
nered sails from side to side, and in
the green towers of the mosques and
the listless leaves of the royal palms
rising from the center of a mass of
white roofs, and above all in tho col
or and movement in the bazaars and
streets. The streets repi'esent ab
solute equality. They are at the
widest but 3 yards across, and every
one pushes, and apparently every
one has something to sell, or at least
something to say, for they all talk
and shout at once and cry at their
donkeys or abuse whoever touches
them. A water carrier, with his
goatskin bag on his back and his fin
ger on the tube through which the
water comes, jostles you on one side,
and a slave as black and shiny as a
patent leather boot shoves you on
the other as he makes way for his
master on a fine white Arabian horse
with brilliant trappings and a huge
contempt for the donkeys in his
way. Richard H. Davis in Harper's
Snoozing Averted.
Sneezing Is averted by pressing
the upper lip, because by doing so
we deaden the impression made on
a certain branch of the fifth nerve,
sneezing being a reflex action ex
cited by some slight impression on
that nerve. Sneezing does not take
place when the fifth nerve is para
lyzed, even though the 6ense of
smell is retained. London Tit-Bita.
