A TARIFF LESSON.
The less tbe Bepablloan press says
about wool the better. Free wool has
taaghl Americans a tariff lesson. The
Houston Post on this snbjeot says:
'The tariff reformer has persisted In
the attempt to plaoe wool on the free
list and has succeeded, bat the direful
predictions, of the Ohio wool growers
particularly, are not oomlngto pass.
We hare free wool, bat the reports
from Boston and other eastern canters
agree that the demand for flrst-olass
Amerloan wool is better than for some
time past. In a free and fair
competition first olass goods will
always be first In demand, no matter
wbat tbe price, and the home mar-
ket will first get tbe benefit of the
demand. This lethe natural coarse
of trade and reoent events are prao-
tloally Illustrating it. The Philadel-
phia Times, published of oourse In one
of the leading wool markets, says that
the statements for the past week show
that the supply of desirable domestic
wools is steadily growing soaroer nnder
the Increased deman 1, and the imports
hare been disappearing in proportion
as the home supply has been purohas
ed. Assuming this authority to bs
oorreot, it pnnotnres another high
tariff fallacy and Indicates that no In-
dustry Is ever hort by removing tbe
artificial prop3 and the selfish handi-
caps with whloh It has been first ear-
rounded, then rendered dependent
upon the necessities and conditions of
some other branch of the industry
that had to base all its calculations
upon some unnatural development of
trade. So long as tbe mills were
denied free oompetition in baying their
operation was hindered to an extent
that the raw home prodnot failed of a
steady and healthy and natural market
and was lnjared jast so far and so
AN IRRIGATION AMENDMENT-
An Austin dispatch eays that Gover-
nor Culberson has serious doubts as to
tbe constitutionality of the irrigation
bill whloh has passed both’ houses.
Representative Tarney called ou him
and triad to oonvinoe him that the
measure is constitutional. The gover-
nor has the matter under considera-
tion, but may bring the veto power in-
No doubt on aooonnt of the gover-
nor’s opinion, Senator Presler has in-
troduced in the state senate and passed
his joint resolution as follows:
Section 1. Be it resolved, by the leg-
islature of the Btate of Texas, that arti-
cle 8, of the constitution of the state of

Irrigation districts within all or any of

annual ad valorem tax to be levied and

purpose, shall vote snoh tax, not to

tenanoes, provided, that no snoh debts
shall be oreated unless provision is
made at the time of its creation for the

As soon as tho king know what was

it is impossible. I said, on my honor as
a gentleman, he should nover be one of
my ministers again. I am sure yon will
agree with me that I cannot do what I

Another man would have been si-

equal to an emergency, replied:
“Pardon me, sir, but I don’t agree

but tho dnlre went on, “Your majostyis

England, with duties to your people far
above any to yourself, and these duties
render it imperative that you should
employ the abilities of Mr. Canning. ”
“Well, Arthur,” said tho king, draw-
ing a long breath, “if I must, I must. ”
Although ho did not like being told
ho was not a gentleman, Goorgo IV had
once, at least, while regent forgotten he
was one. This was when ho flung a
glass of wino in Colonel Hamlyn’s face,
with “Hamlyn, you are a blackguard!”
Tho insulted officer could not return
tho compliment without committing
something liko treason—it was out of
the question to challenge tho prince,
while to let tho insult pass unnoticed
was equally impossible.
Tho colonel filled his glass and threw
the contents in tho face of his neighbor,
saying, “His majesty’s toast, pass it

Ho relented, aud I thanked him and forgave
him—dear papal *

HALTED BY A MOUNTAIN LION.
SWALLOWED THE JUMPING BEANS.
Thought They Were Capsules and Took the
Dose In tho Dark.
A good citizen in tho northwestern
section of tho city has been through an
exciting experience. Doing a dyspeptic,
tho gentleman visited his physician. A
prescription was written for him which
the druggist filled. Tho rosult was a
small box of capsules, which ho took
homo and placed upon the sideboard,
with tho remembrance of the instruc-
tions to take two every hour in the even-
ing after eating until bedtime. Theso
were obeyed implioity.
It was dark in tho dining room, and
the gentleman went for his medicine
the first evening without a precaution
of a lamp and administered to himself
three doses of two capsules each before
retiring. He was awakened some hours
afterward by a strange sensation. For
aught the man could toll he seemed
within to be a mammoth penuchlo board
on whioh a million littlo objects were
Ho could distinguish kicks and jumps
so vividly that it was in vain for his
wife to try to convince him that ho was
dreaming. She suggested the doctor,
and tho servant was dispatched in hot
haste. Before he arrived the sick man
asked for more of the capsules, whirh
were brought to his bedside. When t.io
cover was removed, there were Mexican
beans instead of capsules, tho kernels
bounciug as merrily as spring lambs.
Tho box of capsules had been misplaoed
accidentally by the yonng sou and heir
and the boans put in its place. The doc-
tor does not say what kind of modicino
ho finds useful in such cases.—Wash-

Wo were driving from Oakland over
the ridgo that divides Alameda and
Contra Costa counties, three girls bound
for a country dauco at Moraga valley, a
little settlement on tho Contra Costa
side. It was late in January, and the
night was pitch dark, but as the young
rancher who drove know every inch of
the way wo wero not afraid.
Wo had undo tho ascent of tho moun-
tain aud wore driving down at a good
pace wheu suddenly the horses stopped,
rearod and then swerved to one side,
overturning the rockaway and landing
us all In the mud on the side of the
road. No one was. hurt, and as we pick-
ed ourselves up, woudoring in a dazed
way what tho trouble was about, some-
thing leaped ont of tho bushes, over the
backs of the prostsnto horses aud lit in
the brush on the .lower side of tho road.
There was a fearful roar, and then wo
saw two great, green eyes glaring out
of tho dprkuess.
Tho driver bad succeeded in pulling
tho frightened horses to their foot and
righting the wagon. Ho ordered ns to
get into onr seats, and handing the
lin6s to the girl on the front seat he
told her to hang on for dear life.
“It is a lion, and he’ll jump jn an-
other minute, ” said the man.
Then, as wo sat spoechless from
fright, tho rancher drew his revolver.
There was a scream unlike aud more
dreadful than anything I had ever heard.
Then tho great beast rolled a fow feet
in tho brush and was still.
After tho horsos wero quieted and wo
had regained our composure sufficiently,
we jumped out of the rockaway, and,
with tho aid of matches, examined onr
game. It was a splendid young Califor-
nia mountain lion, measuring about
four feet in length. We threo girls
wero all very bravo when we found the
beast was really dead, so wo helped the
driver lift the carcass into the back of
the wagon and then continued our trip,
creating a great sensation among the
young rustics at the dance when wo
told of our adventure. To be sure, we
gave tho driver credit for tho actual kill-
ing, but weren’t we thero when it hap-
pened, and didn’t we keep quiet, in-
stead of screaming as lots of girls
would have done?—Now York Sun.
Gold Mines In Cemeteries.
A Frenchman who has been traveling,
in this country says in Lo Temps that
what struck him most in tho United
States was the American habit of filling
the teeth with gold. About $500,000
worth of gold is thns used every year,
'he says, all of which, of course, is
buried. So he figures that at the end of
three centuries the cemeteries of Amer-
