TIIR DAILY CAPITAL' JOT'RN'AL'. SALEM. ORFfiOv SATURDAY. APRIL 8. lfllfi. o HEMry VII. Art and the Broncho By O. HENRY '"opy lnht by Duulileday, Page & Co.J UT of the wilder ness had come a painter.

Art, whose divine ex Iin-sslon flown Impartially from tlie fin H-rr lips of u cowboy or a dilettante em peror, had chosen for a medium the J'.'iy AilHt of the San Saba. The out i vine, Reven feet by twelve of besnteur- ! canvas, stood, gilt framed, In the l liby of the capllol. The legislature was In session. The (Milln clly of that great western state won enjoying the sonson of activity iiml p roll I that Ihe congregation of the nol'ins bestowed. The hoarding houses wore corralling (he easy dollar of the gjiinesome lawmakers. The greatest nidi; in the west, an cuplre In area and resources, had arisen and repudi ated the old libel of barbarism, law liivaklng anil bloodshed. Order reign ed within her borders. Life and prop oily were ns safe there, sir, as any where among the corrupt ell leg of the ((Tote east, I'lllowshams, churches, nl r wherry feasts and habeas corpus nourished. With impunity might the tenderfoot ventilate his "stovepipe" or , bin theories of culture. The arts and sciences received nurture and subsidy. And, therefore, It behooved tho legis lature of this great stale to iniiko ap propriation for Ihe purchase of I.ouny linsroe's Immortal painting. I'arely has the San Saba country contributed to the spread of the line 'Iris. Its sous have excelled hi the Holider graces, In (he throw of the l'irl:it. the manipulation of the esteeiu 'il .to, Ihe Intrepidity of (lie one card il'.nv and the nocturnal stimulation of towns from undue lethargy. Hut hith erto It had not been famed as a strong h ld of aesthetics. I.onny lirlscoe's brush had removed that disability, lb-re among Ihe limestone rocks, the Hinciilout cactus and tho drought pin-bed gmss of that arid valley had been born Ihe boy artist. Why he ("ime to woo art Is beyond poNlulatloii. tti'.i'ond doubt some spore of Ihe af ll iliis must have sprung up within lilin In spile of the desert soil of San Halm. 'I'li tricksy spirit of creation must Icire incited him to attempted expos ition and then have sat hilarious among tin' while hot sands of the valley watching Its mischievous work, for Loony's picture, viewed as a tiling of nit. was something to have driven inviy dull care from the bosoms of the ci lllcs. The painting-one mlght'aliuost say piinnrainn-wiis designed to portray a typical western scene, Interest culinl n iHiig In a central animal figure, that of a stampeding steer, life size, wild eyed, lierv, breaking away In a mail rindi from I lie herd I tint, close ridden by a typical cow puncher, occupied a portion somewhat In the right back ground of the picture. The landscape presented tilling mid faithful acces sories. Chaparral, mesiinlt and pear were distributed In Just proportions. A Hiiiulsli dagger plant, with Its waxen bl ossoius In a creamy aggregation as large us a water bucket, contributed Hot h beauty and variety. The dls tniice was itniliilatlM? prairie, bisected liv stretches r the Intermittent uli'onnis peculiar to the region lined Willi I lie rich green of live oak and v iler elm. A richly mottled rallle Moake lay culled beneath a pale green clump of prickly pear In the fore ground. A third of (tie canvas was l'Miauiailiie and lake white the typl col western sky and the Hying clouds, rainless nod feathery. Itetweeu two plastered pillars It) the commodious hallway near Hie door of II hamber of representatives stood (he painting. Citizens and lawmakers pissed I here by twos and groups niul homcilmcs crowds In gaze upon It, Jinny--perhaps a majority of them bid lived Hie prairie life and rcenllcd iM-ily Ihe familiar scene. Old cattle men stood, reminiscent and candidly pleased, chatting with brothers of for i camps and trails of (lie days It brought back to mliiil. Art clitics were few In the town, and there was heard none of that Jargon nf color, (.(rfpecllve and feeling niicIi as the e i t. loves to tine as a curb and a rod to the pretensions uC the artists. "1 was a great picture, most of them tigi-eed. admiring Hie gilt frame -larger than any (hey had ever .seen. Senator Kinney was the picture's champion ami sponsor.

Nur wan Sen tor Mullens, representing the 8nu Baba, country, lukewarm In his belief that the state should pun base the painting of his constituent. He was nlvlsed that the San Saba f omit ry was unanimous In its admiration of the ireat palming by one of its own ilenl cns. Hundreds of connoisseurs bad straddled their broncos and ridden miles to view It before Its removal to lite capital. Senator .Mullens desired reelection, uuil he knew the impor tance of the San Saba vote He ulso knew that with the help of Senator Kinney, who was a power In the legis lature, the thing could be put through. Now, Senator Kinney had an irrigation bill that he wanted passed for the bcu elit of his own section, and he knew Senator Mullens could render hlin val uable aid and Information, Ihe San Saba country ulreiidy enjoying the bcnellls of similar legislation. With these In terests happily dovetailed, wonder at the sudden Interest in art at (he state cupitul must, necessarily, be small, r'ew artists have uncovered their lirst pictures to the world under happier auspices than did I.onny Iiriscoe. Senator Kinney and Mullens came to in understanding In the matter of Irri gation and art while partaking of long drinks In the cafe ct the Kmplre hotel. "H'ni!" said Senator Kinney, "I don't know. I'm no art critic, but It seems to me t4 thing won't work. It looks like the worst kind of a chroiuo to uie. 1 don't want to cast any reflections upon the artistic talent of your constit uent, Senator, but I, I yself, wouldn't give six bits for the picture without the frame. How are you going to cram a thing like that down the throat of a legislature I hut kicks al t a little Item lu the expense bill of $tiSl for rubber erasers for only one term? It's wast ing time. I'd like to help you, Mul lens, but they'd laugh us out of the senate chamber if we were to try it." "I ' you don't get the point," said Sri. .Mullens, lu his deliberate tones, tapping Kinney's glass with his long forelinger. "I have my own doubts as to what the picture Is Intended to represent, a hiillilght or a Japanese allegory, but I want this legislature to make an appropriation to purchase. tf course, the subject of the picture should have been In Hit- stale historical line, but It's too late to have Ihe paint scraped oft" and changed. The state won't miss Ihe money and lite picture can be slowed away lu a lumber room where it won't annoy any one. Now, here's lite point to work on, leaving art to look after Itself Hie chap that painted ihe picture Is the grandson of f.uclen Briscoe." "Say It again," said Kinney, leaning his head thoughtfully. "Of the old, original I.uclen Iiriscoe?" "Of him. "flic man who,' you know. Thi man who carved Hie stale out of Ihe wilderness. The man who settled the Indians. Tho man who cleaned out Hit? horse thieves. The man who refused the crown. The stale's favor ite son. l)o you see Ihe point now?" "Wrap up lite picture," said Kinney. "It's as good as sold. Why didn't you lay that at lirst. Instead of philander ing along about art. I'll resign my seat In Hie senate iiml go back to chain carrying for the county surveyor the day I can't make litis state buy n pic ture calclml 1 by u grandson' of I.u clen Hrlscoe. Did you ever hear of a special appropriation for lit,, purchase of n home for the daughter of One Kyed Smothers? Well, that went through like a motion to adjourn, mid old One Kyed never killed ha lf as many Indians as Iiriscoe did. About what Hgure had you ami (he calclmliier agreed iinu to Handbag the treasury for?" ' ' "I thought." said Mullens, "that maybe live I dred"- "r'ivo hundred!" Interrupted Kinney s ho ha leietl on Ids glass for a lead pencil and looked around for u waller. "Only live hundred for n red sleer on the hoof delivered by a grand son of I.tieleu Ilrlsi ! Where's your state pride, man? Two thousand Is what It'll be. You'll Introduce the bill and I'll get up on the floor of the sen ate and wave the scalp of every Indian old i.uclen ever murdered. Let's see: there was something' else proud and foolish he did. wasn't there? Oh, yes; ho declined all emoluments and hone Ills he was entitled to. Itefused his head right and veteran donation eer tlllcates. Could have been governor, lint wouldn't. Declined a pension. .Vow's the stale's chance to pay up. It'll have to lake the picture, but then It deserves some punishment for keep ing the Iiriscoe family walling so long. We'll bring tills lldng up about Ihe middle of the mouth after Ihe tax bill Is settled. .Vow, Mullens, you send over as soon as you can and get nte the llgures on lite cost of those Irriga tion ditches and the statistics about Ihe Increased production per acre. I'm going to need you when Unit bill of mine conies up. 1 reckon we'll tie able to pull along pretty well together tills session and maybe others to come, eh, senator?" Thus did fortune elect to smile upon the boy artist of the San Saba. I'ate hud already done Iter sltatv when she arranged his atoms In the cosmogony of creation as lite grandson of Lttclen Iiriscoe. The original Iiriscoe had been n pio neer lnt It us to territorial occupation and in certain tuts prompted by a great and simple heart, lie had been one of the tlrst settlers ami crusaders against the wild forces of nature, the savage and the shallow politician. His name and memory were revered equal ly with any upon the list contprls'ng Houston, Koone. Crockett, Clark and t liven. He had lived simply, Inde pendently and unvexed by ambit ion. I!ven a less nIiivwiI man than Senator Kinney could have prophesied that his date would hasten to honor and re ward bis grandson, come out of Hie chaparral lit even so late a day. And so before the ureal picture by the door of tlie ctiainoer of representa tives nt frequent times for many days could be found the breezy, robust form of Senator Kinney and be heard his clarion voice reciting the past deeds of Lui'leu Hrlscoe In connection with the handiwork of his grandson. Senator Mullens' work was more subdued in sight and sound, but directed along Identical lines. Then as the day for the Introduction of the bill for appropriation draws nigh up from the San Saba country rides I.onny Briscoe and a loyal lobby of cowpuncbers, broncho back, to boost the cause of art and glorify Ihe name of friendship, for Lonny is one of them, a knight of stirrup anil chapi;r rerun, as handy with the lariat and Ao as he is with brush and palette. On a March afternoon the lobby dashed, with n whoop, Into town. The cowpunehors had adjusted their garb suitably from that prescribed for the range to the more conventional require ments of town. They had conceded their leather obaparreras anil transfer red their six shooters and belts from their persons to the horns of their sad dles. Among them rode Lonny, a youth of twenty-three, brown, solemn faced. Ingenuous, bowlegged, reticent, be striding Hot Tamales, the most saga cious cow pony west of tlie Mississip pi. Senator Mullens had Informed hlin of tha bright prospects of tlie situa tion; had even mentioned so great was his conlldence In the capable Kinney the price that the state would. In all likelihood, pay. It seemed to Lonny that fame and fortune were in his hands. Certainly n spark of the di vine lire was In the little brown cen taur's breast, for he was counting the $J,0(J0 as but a means to future devel opment of his talent. Some day he would paint a picture even greater than thls-one, say, Yi feet by 20. full of scope and atmosphere and action. I Miring the three days that yet Inter vened before Ihe coining of Hie date lixed for tlie Introduction of the bill tlie centaur lobby did valiant service. Con I less, spurred, weather tanned, full of enthusiasm expressed lu bizarre terms lltey loafed in front of ihe paint ing with tireless zeal. Heasonlng not unshrewdly, they estimated that their comments upon Its lidellty to nature would be leielved as expert evidence. Loudly tliey prahed Hie skill of the painter whenever there were ears near to which such evidence might be protlt ably addressed. Lem Perry, Ihe lead er of Ihe claque, had a somewhat set speech, being uuliivenllve In the con struction of new phrases. "Look at the two-year-old now," he would say. waving u cinnamon brown hand toward Hie salient Milnt of Hie picture. "Why, dang my hide. Ihe critter's alive. I can Jest hear him. 'luinpcty lump,' a cullin' away from the herd, prclcnilin' lie's skcorcd. He's a menu scamp, that there steer. Look at bis eyes a wallln' and his tail a wav ln'. He's Hue niul nal'ral to life, lie's Jest haiikcrln' fur :t cow pony to round hint up anil st'titl him scoot in' hack to Hie bunch. Daim my hide! .lest look lit that tall of his'ii a-wavin'. Never knowed a steer to wave his tall any other way, tiling my hide ef I did." .lud Shelby, while admitting (he ex cellence of the steer, resolutely cou tluetl himself to open admiration of Hie landscape, to the end that (lie en tire picture received its meed of praise. "That piece of range," he declared, "Is a dead ringer for Head lloss valley. Same grass, same lay of the land, same old Whlpperwill creek sknllyhootlii' in mi Mh They Loafed In Front of tho Painting With Tiralesa Zeal, Hid out of them niults of timber. Them buzzards on Hie left Is chvllu' 'round over Sam Klldruke's old paint boss that killed Itisself over drlukiu' ou a hot day. You can't see the boss for thai molt of ellums ou the creek, but le's (bar. Anybody Unit was golu' to look for Head lloss valley ami come across this picture, w hy, he'd Jest light ilt'ti his broncho and hunt a place to camp." Skinny lingers, wedded to comedy, ouceived a complimentary little piece f acting that never failed to make an impression. L'dging quite near to the picture, he would suddenly at fnvorn 'ile moments emit a piercing and awful "Yl-'yl!" leap high and away, coming down with a great stump of heels and whirring of rowels upon Hie stone flagged floor. ".looming Christopher!"--so ran tils lines -"thought that rattler was a gin n ine one. I dug baste my skin If 1 didn't! Seemed to tne I heard him rat tle. Look at the blamed unconverted Insect a layln' under that pear' Llttl more and Bomebody would 'a' been snake bit." With these artful dodges, contributed by I.ouuy's faithful coterie, with the sonorous Kinney perpetually sounding tbe picture's merits and with the hol veut prestige of the pioneer Briscoe covering It like a precious varnish, It seemed that the Sail Saba country could not fall to add a reputation as an art center to its well known superiori ty In steer roping contests and achieve ments with the precarious busted flush. Thus was created for the pic ture an atmosphere, due rather to ex ternals than to the artist's brush, but through It the people seemed to gaze with more admiration. There was n magle In the name of Briscoe that counted high against faulty technique ami crude coloring. The ohl Indian lighter and wolf slayer would have smiled grimly In his happy hunting grounds had he known that his dllet taute ghost was thus figuring as an art patron two generations after his uninspired existence. Came the day when the senate was expected to pass the bill of Senator Mullens appropriating $2,000 for tbe purchase of the picture. The gallery of the senate chamber was early pre empted by Loony and the San Saba lobby. In the front row of chairs they sat, wild haired, self conscious, Jing ling, creaking and rattling, subdued by the majesty of the council hall. The bill -was Introduced, went to the second reading, mfd then Senator Mul lens spoke for It dryly, tediously and at length. Senator Kfuney then arose, and the welkin seized the bellrope pre paratory to ringing. Senator Kinney, spoke for nn hour. History was h!s theme-history miti gated by patriotism and senliincut. He referred casually to the picture in (he outer luil I It was unnecessary, ho said, to dilate upon Its merits the senators had seen for themselves. The painter of the picture was the grandson of Luclen. Briscoe. Then came the word pictures of Briscoe's life set forth In thrilling colors. Ills rude and ven turesome life, Ids simple minded love for the commonwealth he helped to up build. Ids contempt for rewards and praise, his extreme and sturdy Inde pendence and the great services be had rendered the state. The subject of the oration was Luclen Briscoe. The painting stood In the background serv ing simply as a means, now happily brought forward, through which tho stale might bestow a tardy recompense upon tho descendant of its favorite son. The bill passed without an opposing vole. Tomorrow it would be taken up by the house. Already was It fixed to glide through that body on rubber tires. Bhindford, Grayson and .rinm mer. all wheelhorses and orators and provided . Willi plentiful memoranda concerning the deeds of Pioneer Bris coe, bad agreed to furnish the motive power. ; The San Saba lobby and Its protege stumbled awkwardly down the stairs and out Into the capltol yard. Then they herded closely and gave one yell of triumph.. But one of them Buck Kneed Summers It was lilt the key with Ihe thoughtful remark: "She cut the mustard," he said, "all right. I reckon they're goln' to buy Lou's steer. I ain't right much on the parlynient'ry, but I gather that's what tho signs added up. But she seems to me, Lonny, Ihe argyment ran principal to grandfather Instead of paint. It's reasonable culculatln' that you want to be glad yon got the Briscoe brand on you, my son." That remark clinched In Loony's mind nn unpleasant, vague suspicion to the same effect. His reticence In creased, and he gathered grass from Ihe ground, chewing It pensively. The picture as a picture had been huniili atlngly absent from the senator's ar guments. The painter had been held up as a grandson, pure mid simple. The hotel t.ouny stopped at was near the capltol. It was near to the 1 o'clock dinner hour when the appropriation had been passetl by the senate. The hotel clerk told Lonny that a famous artist from New York had arrived In town that day and was lu the hotel. He was on his way westward to New Mexico to study the effect of sunlight tiHiu the ancient wall of the Zunls Modern stone reflects light. Those an cient building materials absorb It. The artist wanted tills effect In a picture lie was painting and was traveling 2,000 miles to get It. Lonny sought this man out after din ner and told Ills story. Tlie artist was an unhealthy man. kept alive by gen ius and Indifference to life. He went with I.onny to the capltol niul stood there before the picture. The artist pulled his heard ami looked unhappy. "Should like to have your senti ments," said lenity, "Just as they run out of the pen." "It's (he way they'll come," said the painter man. "I took three different kinds of medicines before dinner by the lalilespoonful. The taste still lin gers. I- am primed for telling the truth. You want to know If the pic ture is or If it Isn't?'' "Bight." said Lonny, "Is It wool or cotton? Should I paint some more or cut it out iiml ride herd a-plenty?" "I beard a rumor during pie," said the artist, "Hint the state Is about to pay you $2,000 for UiN picture." "It's passetl the senate." said Lonny. "and Hie house rounds It up tomor row." "That's lucky." said the pale man. "Do you carry a rabbit's foot?" "No." said Lonny. "but It seems I had a grandfather. lie's considerable mixed up In the color scheme. It took me a year to paint that picture. Is she entirely avvfnl or not? Some says, now. that that steer's tall ain't badly druwed. They think It's proportioned ilce. Tell me." The artist gianceU at Lenny's wiry figure and nut brown skin. Something stirred him to a passing Irritation.. "Tor art's sakij, son," he said, frac tlously, "don't spend any more money for paint. It Isn't a picture nt nil. It's a gun. You hold up tho state with It if you like and got your $2,000, but don't get in front of any more canvas. Live under It. Buy a couple of hun dred ponies with your money- I'm told they're that cheap ami' ride, ride, ride. Kill your lungs and eat and sleep and be happy. No more pictures. Y'ou look healthy. That's genius. Cultivate it." He looked at his watch. "Twen ty minutes to 3. Four capsules and one tablet nt 3. That's all you wanted to know. Isn't it?" At 3 o'clock the cowpuncbers rode t for Lonny. bringing Hot Tamales, sa, died. Traditions must be observed To celebrate the passage of the bill by the senate the gang must ritle wildly through the town, creating uproar and excitement. "Come on, boys," said Lonny, urging Hot Tamales Into a gallop with his knees. With a whoop the inspired lob by tore nfter him through the dust, Lonuy led bis cohorts straight for the capltol. With a wild yell the gang in dorsed Ids now evident intention of riding Into It. Hooray for San Saba! Up tbe six broad limestone steps clat tered the bronchos of the cowpunch- "Don't spend any more money for paint." ers. Into the resounding hallway they pattered, scattering In dismay (hose passing on foot. Lonny, in the lead, shoved Hot Tamales direct for (he great picture. At that hour a down pouring, soft light from the second story windows bathed the big canvas. Against the darker background of the hall the painting stood out with valu able effect, in spile of the defects of the art you could almost fancy that you guzed out upon a landscaie. You might well flinch n step from Uie con vlnclng figure of the life sized steer stampeding across the grass. Perhaps it thus seemed lo Hot Tamales. The scene was In his line. Perhaps be only obeyed the will of his rider. His ears pricked lip; ho snorted. Lonny leaned forward in the saddle and elevated his elbows, wing-like. Thus signals the cowpuncher to his steed to launch hlin self full speed ahead. Did Hot Ta males fancy he saw a steer, red and cavorting, Unit should be headed off and driven back to herd? There was a tierce clatter of hoofs, a rush, a gath erlng of steely flank muscles, a leap lo the jerk of the bridle rein, and Hot Tamales, with Lonny bending low In the middle, to dodge the top of the frame, ripped through the great can vas like a shell from a mortar, leaving the cloth hanging in rugged shreds about a monstrous hole. Quickly Lonny pulled up bis pony, and rounded the pillars. Spectators came running, too astounded lo add speech to the commotion. The ser geant at arms of the house came forth, frowned, looked ominous and then grinned. Many of the legislators crowded out to observe the tumult. Lenny's cow-punchers were stricken to silent horror by his mad deed. Senator Kinney, happened, to be among the curliest to emerge. Before he could speak Lonny leaned In his saddle as Hot Tamales pranced, point ed his quirt at the senator and said calmly: "That was a fine speech you made today, mister, but you might as well let up on that 'proprlatlon business. I ain't nskln' the slate to give me noth ln'. I thought I had a picture to sell to It, but it wasn't one. You said n heap of llilugs about Grandfather Bris coe that makes me kind of proud I'm his grandson. Well, the Briscoes ain't takln' presents from the state yet. Anylmdy can have the frame that wauls It. Hit her up. boys." Away scuttled the San Saba delega tlou out of the hall, down the steps, along the dusty slrect. Halfway to Ihe Sail Saba country they camped that night. At bedtime I.onny stole away from the campllre and sought Hot Tamales, placidly eat ing grass at the end of his stake rope. Lonny hung upon tils neck, and his art aspirations went forth forever In one long, regretful sigh. But ns he thus made renunciation his breath formed a word or two. "Y'ou was tlie only one. Tamales. what seen anything In It. It did look tike n steer, didn't II, old boss?" I HOUSEHOLD HINTS J Ginger Grapefruit. Grapefruit is wonderfully appetizing when served with ginger. Itemove the hard pithy renter, the skin between the sections and the seeds. Shred the pulp mm a silver linn, aiming to earn nail a heaping teaspoouful of sugar, the same quantity of desiccated enroannt and one table-spoonful of preserved ginger cut into tliee and a tablespoon ful of tiie ginger syrup. Cool for several hours before serving. When ready to serve place on small dessert plates and put a tablcpoonful of wripped cream in the center of eah half, Individual Salad For each individual salad three let tuce leaves (head lettuce preferred); one pickled beet with center cut out to form a cup. fill cup in beet with creamed cheese beaten smooth, with pineapple juice. Boil an egg, chop white and yolk separately. Sprinkle a little of yolk on top of cheese (in cups), and add dash of paprika for color. Make a mall pile of chopped whites on each leaf and add a little salad dress ing or creamed cdteesee. Serve cold. Tulip Luncheon. Here lire two suggestions for a tulip lu neheon: Place Cards. From green crepe paper cut stem and leaves. From red, cut bud or blossom of tulip. Mount on small white card. Tulip Siilud Shape tulip blossom from half a canned pimento. Use strips of green pepper for stem and leaves. Place these on a slice of pineapple anil serve on a lettuce leaf. Kdge the tulip blossom with salad dressing. Stove Blacking Hints To keep stove polished, wash red and rusty parts with vinegai before using polish. Stove will take and keep polish much better. To keep grease off stove, use cloth dipped in alcohol. Add soapsuds to stove blacking and it will not conic off so quickly. Put some vinegar in stove polish, or a few drops of turpentine; will help polish stick. Gasoline or coal oil will take off the grease and will make it look nice ami black. To remove grease from gas stove, put gasoline on a dry cloth (have stove perfectly rold) and apply; also takes dirt front tops of stovepipes. To keep stove black, pat a little black eotfee nr the paste and have stove just warm. By using this daily the shine will not wear off. Cse a flannel cloth instead of brush. For the Baby Covering Baby's Feeding Bottles Instead of using cotton for corking the bottle containing baby's milk, use clean waxed paper, putting same over the tops of the bottles and fastening it on with a rubber baud. This eliminates the trouble sometimes caused by bits of lint, getting into the milk ami so stop ping up the nipple, if siaall-necked bot alcs me used, nail the expense of the rubber caps which are sold for covers to the witle-momlied bottles. The Table. Mock (loose. Two cups bread crumbs, two cups black walnuts, two cups boiled rice, six hard-cooked eggs, three raw eggs, one tablespoon grated onion, salt, pepper, grated nutmeg to taste. Put bread crumbs in sauce pan with two cups water, cook a few min utes, add hard-cooked eggs chopped. Take sauce pan from fire, add black walnut meats and the rice. When this is well mixed mid raw eggs, slightly beaten, and seasonings. Form this in to shape of a goose, reserving portions for legs anil wings. Take a tablespoon fill of mixture in your hand and press it into shape of a leg, put piece of dry macaroni into it for bone and fas ten it to goose. Do other side same way. Form remaining portions into small pieces looking like wings, tucked under, nail press them to side of goose. Brush goose over with melted butter and bake one hour. Serve with apple sauce. , Western Union Announces More Extended Service During the past few years the West ern I'aina Telegraph Company has been in the van of public service corpora tions in putting out new services to meet modern business and social de mands. The company now announces another 'innovation for the benefit of its patrons. The Western Ciiinn Com pany annually transfers by telegraph an enormous amount of money niul heretofore the senders of lunacy have not been permit ted to include in the transfers any eonimuuiratinn of a busi ness or personal character to Hie payee, such infm mat inn being required to be sent by 'separate message. Fader the new arrangements, however, transfers between points in the Fnited States may include such information and the same will be delivered tn the payee at the time the transfer is paid. This surely represents an up to date service and one that sHould appeal to and be of much value to business houses and the public generally. Through it, peo- j pie will be enabled to transmit money quickly with proper instructions to meet blinking obligation, pay insur ance policies, guarantee purchases, ac company bids, purchase railroad, steam ship anii theater tickets, pay taxes, as sessments and bills of all descriptions,' make remittances to traveling salesmen and pupils attending distant schools, etc. There is practically no limit to the purposes for which this service is available. The Telegraph company is to be coiiitiiciided upon the manner in which it is broadening the scope anil purposes of its various services in order to better meet the needs of the public.
