A FUNNY INCIDENT.
A FRAGMENT OF HISTORY THAT li
FULL OF HUMOR.
Coloael Born’s Letter to General Logan
Explaining on Attack on Grant — Shan-
non, HU Associate, Was an Ambitions
Fried Chicken Enter.
Mrs. John A. Logan once gave to a
newspaper reporter in this city a letter
from a southern editor that created a
lot ot talk. It ^a* immediately after
the death of General Grant. The re-
porter bad gone to the Logan residence
to interview the general about some
matter then before congress. The gen-
eral was in bed, and the reporter was
shown to his room. In the course of the
evening Mrs. Logan entered the bed-
chamber and took part in the conversa-
tion. In her hand she held a letter, the
contents of which her husband knew
about. She wanted to give it to the re-
porter, but the general objected. But
as the newspaper man started to leave
Mrs. Logan slipped the envelope into
his hand The next morning nearly
every newspaper in the oountry printed
a copy of it. It was a rare and racy
Colonel Alexander G. Horn of Meridi-
an, Miss., then the editor of The Daily
Meroury, was its author. The letter
was intended as an explanation of an
editorial that bad appeared a few weeks
before in The Mercury. Colonel Horn
and J. J. Shannon were associates in
the publication of the aforesaid journal.
On the morning following the death of
the hero of Appomattox The Mercury
contained one of the most cruel articles
about General Grant ever printed by a
press. It dared any true southerner to
grieve or show signs of sorrow over his
demise. It called upon the people of
Dixie land to exult and rejoice at the
death of the man who had slain their
sons and burned their homes. The peo-
ple of Meridian were astounded. They
went to the editor, Oolouol Horn, and
asked him, in the name of peace, to
write another article withdrawing it.
He was obdurate and instead of doing
as bis neighbors wished dictated anoth-
er one equally as licrce as the first.
At that moment the name of Colonel
Shannon was before the senate awaiting
confirmation as postmaster at Meridian.
An enemy of his, knowing the love that
General Logan had for General Grant,
inclosed copies of the paper to him, ex-
pecting that Logan would oppose Shan-
non’s nomination. Shannon and Horn
had a dispute over the editorial, and
their relations became so strained that
a street duel was only averted by the
interf—once of mutual friends. Colonel
Horn's letter to General Logan was to
the effect that Colonel Shannon was in
noceut of Ibo article and had known
nothing about, it until he saw it in the
paper. I cannot quote the letter with
literal exactness, but a part of it wus as
“No; Shannon bad nothing to do
with it. In the first place he hasn't,
sense enough to conceive such a senti-
ment as was expressed in the editorial
and if he hud lie would be too cowardly
to write it. He is my partner, 1 am sor-
ry to say, but by making him postmaster
you will afford me the opportunity of
getting rid of him.
“And why not take him, John? There
is a mighty narrow strip between the
radical republicanism that you repre-
sent aud the Cleveland Mugwumpery
that Shannon trieB to represent. He is
not a Democrat, never was aud never
will bo. I predict that yon will soon
have him over on your side, and God
speed the day! Wo Democrats down
here don't want him.
“I am growing old, but 1 am still in
possession of my mental facilities, aud
I hope to live many years longer to tell
the truth from day to day about the
despised Yankees uiid their politics. 1
am seriously afflicted with hemiplegia,
else I would bovo mauled h--1 out of
Shannon long ago.
“Loguu, you ought to remember
as one of the fellows that figured souio-
wbat conspicuously in the Kemper
county trials. I guess I can take the
credit to myself of having had tho Dem-
ocrats who killed tbo Radicals there
acquitted before the courts. I would
like another job of the same kind.
"You aud I ought to bo friends. Op-
posites beget liking. You have been a
broth of a boy in your party, and 1 have
been a slieol of a fellow in mine.”
General Logan replied good uatured-
ly to this epistle, after whiuli a friend-
ly correspondence sprang up between
the erratic genius at Meridian and the
senator. Logan read the Shannon letter
in the committee room of the senate,
and then luughiugly said that inasmuch
as his friend Colonel Horn wanted
Shannon confirmed he didn’t see bow
he could oppose him. Colonel Horn,
unreconstructed, has long since passed
into silence, aud a few years later Colo-
nel Shannon whs buried at his old
home in Paulding, Miss., a town once
mode famous by the publication of Tbo
Weekly Clarion, many years ugo, of
wbicb pajier hewas oue of the founders.
During the Sullivan-Kilruiu trial at
Purvis some years ago I sat at the break-
fast table with Sullivan and Colonel
Shannon. Sullivan ate three fried chick-
ens, Shannon four. Churlio Rich, the
great sportsman, got the two to outer u
fried chicken eating match. Some one
asked Sullivan how many ho thought
he could get away with, and Sullivan
said about eight.
“EightI” spoke up Shannon. Well,
yon will have to do better than that.
You may be the champion prizefighter,
but you will have to whet up that ap-
petite of yours befure you can take
away the chicken eating champion-

The present writer has paid tut a '
canvasbaek duck in the Maryland club
in the city of Baltimore, the city which
is the home of the canvasbaek connois-
seur, and situated iu the district wbicb
is the haunt of the canvasbaek.
In San Francisco, on the other hand,
it is possible to partake of an excellent
diuuer at one of the many French res-
taurants wherein a canvasbaek shall fig-
ure and a dinner can be secured with
ordinary wine at from #1.25 to #1.50—
less than one-third of the single item of
duck at the Baltimore dinner.
It may be said by captions critics
that tbo canvasbauks in San Francisco
are not so good as the canvasbaek n in
Baltimore. Error! They are not only
just as good, they are the same. All of
the canvasbacks in the United States
come from the same district, the vast
breeding grounds in Alaska. The docks,
flying to the southward, take up their
various lines of flight over the lakes of
the northwestern states, like Minnesota,
thence down to the Chesapeake marshes,
or dividing and going to the west of
the Rocky mountains, thoy come to the
feediug grounds which line the great
marshes at the confluence of the Sacra-
mento and San Joaquin rivers. The
birds come from the same breeding
grounds, they get the same food in our
Suisun marshes as they do on the
Uhesapeake—to wit, the wild celery,
Apium graveolens. Iin short, the birds
arc exactly the same. They differ only
in price.—San Francisco Argonaut.

that they have bad 'had luck' ever since

“At this very time 1 know a business
man of great culture and refinement
who is vigorously pursuing an old
wooden desk which he owned many
years ago—a desk on which he made an
enormous amount of money by a few
lucky strokes of his pen. The disk
passed from hand to hand und out of
his possession. He is now earnestly en-
deavoring to trace it and purchase it,
believing that recent business reverses
aud hard times will floe away, if he can
only stretch his legs once more under

local newspaper offices came rushing
through tlie editor's room one day. her

She was a new member on the staff.
Plainly she was exeiled.

She pointed at other spots.
“What is it?” asked the chief, study-
ing the spots.
" Why, ‘slug religion.' Somebody has
written at the head of every paragraph
the words 'slug religion,’ and the print-
ers have printed it too. Think if it had
gone iu the paper I won’t stay ”—
It was not easy to explain that “sing

An Englishman who drops bis h’s
and aspirates his a’s and a stenographer
and typewriter who spells phonetically i
from dictation make a combination |
from which trouble is sure to result tin |
less the “copy” is carefully revised, j
The manager of one of the most inipor- j
tant manufacturing plants iu Cleveland j
is an Englishman. Not long ago he om- j
ployed a young man toact as bis stenog-
rapher,*Hnd one of the first things that j
the latter was called upon to do was ;
the “taking down” of a letter to the
manager’s wife, who was away at a
summer resort. Being a busy man, the j
manager didn’t take the trouble to look j
at the letter after it had been typewrit- :
ten, bnt when bis wife answered it
there was a hot time for the stenogra-
pher. “My dear Henry,” she wrote,
“what on earth do you mean by calling
me ‘Hannah’ and our little Horace
‘Orris?’ I will admit that this sounds i
like you, but why do you make a joke i
of it before your employees?"
Of course the fond husband and fa-
ther didn’t know what it all meant, and
so lie wrote for an explanation, when
his first letter was sent hack to him.
One glance at it and he rushed over
to his stenographer, excitedly threw the
sheet down before him and demanded,
“There, what do you mean, sir, by
writing my wife’s tame down * ’An-
“Anna?" replied the young man.
“Let me see. No, I've got it Hannah,
all right. ”
“But," said the manager, who was
furious, "it’s not ’Auiiah,--it,
“Well, there it is, Hannah—H-a-n-
" 'Annuli ho dashed!" exclaimed the
manager. “A u-n-a, Hanna! Han’t you
understand English, you blanked fool?"
By this time the stenographer began
to see through the trouble, so be begged
off upon the plea that having had a
swelling iu one of his ears ho had not
been able to hear very well. But it cost
him nearly a week's salary to square
things with the other boys in the office,
anil lie always deems it best to hide
when he hears the manager’s wife in
the hall.—Cleveland Loader.

A BUSINESS PARABLE.
You Cannot Fall to A|i|iro<'lat» the Point
In Thin Story.
Once a farmer had 1,800 bushels of
wheat, which ho sold not to n single
grain merchant, but to 1,800 different
dealers, a bushel each. A few of them
paid him in cash, hut far the greater
number said it was not convenient then;
they would pay later. A few months
passed, and the man's hank account ran
low. "How is this?” he said. “My
1,800 bushels of grain should have kept
mo in affluence until another crop is
raised, hut 1 have parted with the grain
and have instead only a vast number of
accounts, so small and scattered that I
cannot get around anil collect fast
enough to pay expenses.’’
So lie posted up a pul,lie notice and
asked all those who owed him to pay
quickly. But few came. The rest said,
“Mine is only a small mutter, and 1
will go and pay one of these days,’’for-
getting that though each account was
very small, when all were put together
they meant a large sum to the man.
Things went on thus. The man got to
feeling so badly that lie fell out of bed
und awoke, and running to his granary
found his 1,800 bushels of wheat still
safe there. He had ouly been dreaming.
Moral.—The next day the man went
to the publisher of iiis paper aud said:
“Here, sir, iH the pay for your paper,
and when next year’s subscription is
due you can depend on mo to pay it
promptly. I stood in the position of uu
editor lust night, and I know how it
feels to have one's honestly earned
money scattered all over the country in
small amounts."—Uuion Signal.
