GOOD, HUT COMES HIGH.
The ordinary annnal expenditures of
the government averaged in President
Harrison’s term $301,291,323.
They averaged in President Cleve
land’s s .cond term $3G0,418,25-1.
They have averoged in President Mc
Kinley’s term $514,400,254.
The cost of running the government
is thus seen to have been increased by
nearly $154,000,000 a year ever since
Mr. McKinley was inaugurated. And
this is not accounted for by tbo extra

Richmond. He is a loyal party man,
and has fought the battles of tile

election, at a salary of $G() per month.
Prof. Smith is a talented and pro

Annie Carleton declined re-election,

successful teacher at the Samuel Ben

SHOOTING OUT-THE LIGHTS.
An Occnulon When the Old Ranch
man Saw the Trick Done.
“According to western stories,” said
a former ranchman, “one of the favor
ite amusements of frontier despera
does Is ‘shooting out the lights.’ I nev
er saw it done but once, but the inci
dent made sufficient impression on my
mind to last me for life. It was at
Benton, a small camp on the old ’Stake
Plain’ trail, in northeastern New Mexi
co. I was staying there over night
with a couple of cattlemen, nnd we
naturally gravitated to the only resort
in town, a sort of combination of bar
and gambling house, in a. rough one
story bnilding, containing a good sized
“The bar was on one side, and on
the other were two or three ‘Mexican
monte’ tables, over each of which were
several large coal oil lamps in wall
brackets. In the center of the place
was a chandelier containing three
more, altogether giving a good deal of
light. We were sitting nt one side
smoking and talking, when in rushed
half a dozen drunken cowboys, headed
by n well known ranchman named
“Tlie crowd were out for excitement
nnd didn’t care how they got it. They
took several drinks and then clustered
around one of the monte tables. In a
few moments Wells insisted upon mak
ing a bet over the limit, to which the
dealer objected. ‘If you don’t turn for
that bet; I’ll shoot out your blnnkety
blank lights!’ bawled the ranchman.
‘The leemit ez feety dollar,’ said the
Alexiean dealer, and the words were no
sooner out of his mouth than Wells
and his gang pulled their six shooters
and began blazing away at the lamps.
“About 25 or 30 shots were, fired, and
almost at the outset the place was in
complete darkness. Of course there
wns a stampede, hut I remember being
surprised that I had heard no crash
of glass. Half an hour later I went
back and found tlie place lit up as
brightly as ever. Wells and his cow
boys having been taken away by
friends. Tho roof was full of holes,
but not a single lamp had been hit.
What had put them out was the con
cussion of tlie shots in n confined
space.” — New Orleans Times-Demo-
An UnsoiiKlit Pardon.
Among the stories of that former
governor of Texas familiarly known
as Sam Houston is more than one
There was a financial agent of the
penitentiary who had warmly opposed
the election of Governor Houston, but
was particularly anxious to retain his
own pleasantly lucrative position. Con
sequently the governor was soon in re
ceipt of a petition in which the man’s
years of faithful service and special
qualifications for the place were set
forth in glowing terms by himself.
Tho governor sent for him and said
gravely, “It appears from this petition
that you have been in the penitentiary
“I have,” was the reply.
“And during that time you have per
formed faithfully every duty that has
come in your way to the bust of your
“I have,” answered the agent, his
courage swiftly rising.
“Then, sir,” said the governor, with
the air of one conferring a priceless
favor, “1 pardon you out!”—Youth’s

The funniest interview I ever had or
beard of, relates Julian Ralph in his
reminiscences, was when I was on the
staff of tlie’Xew York Snn. I had been
sent to look up some one in a suburb of
the city. The address was a number
on Fourth street, but, to my amaze
ment, I found three such streets in the
place. The house I sought was not in
any of them. Tired nnd almost dis
couraged I turned into a cobbler’s shop,
and seeing a bearded German bending
over a last in the glare of a swinging
