EARLY DAYS 1\ THE WEST.

From the New Orleans Times-Democrat.
“The first time I ever saw Theodore
Roosevelt was back in the early eighties,”
said a man who used to live in the West.
“1 met him on a sleeping car coming East
from Wyoming, where he had been visit
ing his ranch on the edge of the Bad
Lands. At that time he was unknown
to the public except as the author of a
few magazine articles on Western life,
but luckily I had read them, and they
formed n bridge for conversation. I
found him a burly young man wiih a
heavy brown beard, which he had al
lowed to grow during his trip, and with
manners that were nervous and abrupt,
but nevertheless very engaging. He was
just recovering from an attack of snow
blindness, and wore large blue glasses.
There were eight or ten passengers* on the
car, representing the usual wide variety
of type to be found on the frontier, and
l remember that Roosevelt easily took the
lead in conversation. His versatility and
the extent of his information were, sur
prising. and there was a vein of quaint
humor that ran through his talk and lent
a certain sparkle to almost everything
“Somebody remarked, for instance, that
he had recently visited a new’ mining
camp in the Black Hills and had to pay
50 cents lor a drink of execrable whisky.
You can always determine a camp’s age
and stage of development by the price
charged for drinks,’ said Roosevelt,
chuckling. ‘Four-bit whisky means re
cent occupation, unsettled conditions and
the presence of one half-barrel, which
some fellow has brought over the trail
on a burro. Two-bit whisky indicates
that the regulation boom is on, that ten
derfeet are plenty, and that regular com
munication with the outside world has
been established. The next drop to three
for a half is not a eign of a slump, but
merely shows that the first excitement
has passed, and the town is getting down
to what they call a ‘business basis.’

Jumping has become laid form, plug hats

beer means that a stampede has set in
for the next diggings. That’s the way to

"It used to be thought that birds could

been exploded. Then, again, the faculty

"Lillenthall, the rjerman scientist,
seemed to be on the right track with hts

his neck and what was peculiarly unfor

Maxim, the machine-gun man. wrestled
with the same problem for years and
spent thousands of pounds constructing
what he christened ‘aeroplanes,’ but at
last he gave it up. It was too hard for
him. Now Oliver fhanute, the veteran
American engineer, and Prof. Lang

made no actual progress, but if persis

TWI.\B MARRY TWINS.
One of the Moat 1 niqne Wedding*
on Record In Ohio.
From the .Philadelphia Press.
One of the most unique weddings on
record occurred n few days ago, when the
Messrs. Crabbe of Columbus, 0., were
married to. the Misses Dotson.
Both brides and bridegrooms are twins.
The twin brothers are so nearly alike
in every respect that even their mother
‘■an scarcely tell them apart, and the
brides resemble each other ns closely as
Both the brides’ and grooms’ birthdays
occur on the same date of the month nnd
they were wedded on the anniversary of
their natal day.
When a Press representative ral'erl to
interview the couples recently he was
graciously received by the young wives.
Mrs. Guy Omer Crabbe, w r hose Chris
tian name is Ardrien. seemed much
amused a* the excitement their marriage
with the Crabbe brothers has caused.
“Edna and I have always been insepa
rable,” she remarked, ‘‘and W’e could not
bear the thought of losing eath other by
marriage, so we both settled the difficul
ty, or had it settled for us, by loving nnd
being loved in return by the Crabbe
“Edna and I m**t the Messrs. Crabbe at
an evening reception nnd there a funny
thing occurred. I wns Introduced to one
of the brothers and my sister to the
other, and ns the ballroom was tnrgc and
crowded neither saw the other s partner.
After the first I did not see Mr.
Crabbe again until he came to claim me
as partner for the lancers, which dance I
had promised him. I continued a subject
which hnd been broken off at the termina
tion of our first dance only to find that
Mr. Crabbe seemed perfectly at a loss to
comprehend what I whs referring to.
While I was reflecting upon his rudeness
at having so soon forgotten our conversa
tion, I came face *o face with my sister
and the other Mr. Crabbe. Imagine our
amazement when we discovered that W’e
were all four sadly mixed. The wrong
Mr Crabbe had claimed the wrong Mias
Dotson. Identities were finally straight
ened and w f e four became fast friends,
but even after an extended acquaintance
we frequently were mistaken for each
other by the Messrs. Crabbe
“As children we resembled other
closely, but the resemblance in past year*
seems to have grown stronger.
“We are almost identical in our taste*
nnd we have always dre*sed exactly alike,
even to the arrangement of our coiffure.
“Even our house, as you see, is a tw.ln.
and we have our apartments furnished
exactly alike Everything is duplicated,
even to th-e heads of the establishment *•

Columbia Drug Cos.. Savannah, Ga.:
Gentlemen—lt gives me pleasure to
heartily recommend Infants' Friend
Powder, nnd to give to you a singu
lar little coincident connected with It.
During the Cotton States and In
ternational Exposition I was presen
ted with a little box of this powder,
and was so pleased with it that I
was exceedingly anxious to get more,
but on looking at the box I found
nothing but Savannah, Ga., no other
address. I have often wished I knew
where to get It. Thie morning's
mall brought your circular with en
closed sample I immediately re
ferred to tny box, and found It was
the Infants' Friend Powder. It is
without doubt the best powder I have
ever used. Respectfully,
MRS. WM. KING.
ALWAYS ON DFCK.
