"I send you dome of the most wonder
ful whisky that ever drove the skeleton
from tho feast, or painted landscaK'S In
the brain of man. Il I the mingled
souls of wheat and corn. In It you will
find the sunshlnn and shadow that
chased each other over billowy fields,
tho breath of June, the carol of the
lark, the dew of the night, the wealth
of summer and autumn's rich content,
all golden with Imprisoned light.
Drink It. and you will hear the volew of
men and maidens singing the 'Harvest
Homo,' mingled with the Imightcr of
children. Drink It, and you will feel
within your blood the starred dawns,
the dreamy, tawny dusks of perfect
days. For forty years this liquid joy
has been within staves of oak, longing
to touch tho Hps of man."
DR. J. M. Hl't'K I.RV'S RF.Pt.Y. -"I
send you some of the most wonder
ful whisky that ever brought a skeleton
Into the closet, or painted scenes of lust
and bloodshed In tho brain of man. It
Is the ghost of wheat and corn, crazed
by the hiss of their natural bodies. In
It you will find a transient sunshine,
chased by a shadow cold as Arctic mid
night, In which the breath of .lime
grows Icy, and the carol of the lark
gives place to the fnrhodlng cry of the
raven. Drink it. and you shall have
'woe,' 'sorrow,' 'bubbling.' and 'wounds
without cause;' 'your eyes shall behold
strange women' and your heart diall
'utter perverse things.' Drink It deep
and yon shall hear tho voice of demons
shrieking, women wailing and worse
than orphaned children mourning the
loss of a father who yet lives. Drink it
deep and long, and serpents will hiss In
your ears, coll themselves about your
neck and seize you with their fangs: for
at last It bltcth like asersnt andsting

liquid death has been within staves of
oak, harmless there as purest water.

New Kinzua Bridge.
The stoel work for the new Kinzua
bridge to replace the present structure
Is about finished, and In April or May
at the latest, the old bridge will be torn
down and the new bridge substituted.
The present structure, which has be
came famous, and which has been visit
by ninny thousands of people. Is too
light to accommodate the heavy rolling
stock that modern railroads use at pres
ent and which they will use in the
future, and It has been found necessary
to substitute for It a heavier structure.
The new bridge will bo exactly the
same In construction and apiearance
but the steel work will be much heavier
and the bridge accordingly will bo much
stronger and able to handle the heaviest
trains that may bo drawn over It.
While the work Is being carried on the
Erie railroad will use the tracks of the
R, R. A P. railroad from Howard Junc
tion to Mt. .Tewett. Itlsexpected that it
will take three or four months to com
plete the work. The old stone work
will be used as It Is said to be sufficient
for the needs of the heaviest bridge.

waiting to see the door open and the
oxen come out, nor could they for many
days be persuaded that the power of
the locomotive could come from other

THE ARCTIC MOSQUITO.

Pest In the World.
"Nothing thnt has ever been written
about the nretle mosquito begins to
come up to the real thing." said a guest
In the St. Charles corridor the other
evening. "I went up the Yukon river
In the summer of l.SOrt, representing
the Alaska and Dominion Trading
company, nnd we struck mosquitoes as
soon as we got Into the hills. They are
twice as In i pe as our familiar bayou
species, and their sting Is like the prod
of a hot needle. They sweep along the
valleys In dense clouds, and If they
catch a man unprepared they are liable
to Mind him before he can escte. ' I
heard stories of children being stung to
death and ran readily believe them.
"Whenever we went ashore we wore
heavy hat nets and took the utmost
precaution, but were certain to suffer
more or less. One of our party cut the
tongues out of his shoes, and ft narrow
line of sock was exposed under the lac
ing. Next day he was bitten there at
least a hundred times, and his feet
were so terribly Inflamed that the shoes
had to be rut off.
"Another mnn, a fireman In the boat
crew, got drunk on Alaska whisky one
afternoon and lay down to take nnp
In a rorner of the engine room. I no
ticed him ft little Inter and was horri
fied at the solid brown mass of mos
quitoes that had settled on a small ex
posed section of his cheek and throat.
In an hour his face was swollen out of
all resemblance to anything human, ho

ing with fever. It was a week before

ber of cattle near Fort Hamilton that
had been made stone blind by stings

HUMBLED THE SENATOR.
He Tried to Assert HI Independence,

The writer remembers a good mnny
years ago when the late Ezeklel Clarke
was a memlier of the stnte senate from
Johnson county. It Is well known Hint
the sen i tor or member from Johnson
county Is always expected to get a
large appropriation for the state uni
versity. To fall would be political
death. Senator Clarke was anxious
to succeed aud during the early part
of the session voted for everything.
If another senator had a bill, all he
bad to do was to go and whisper In
Ezeklrl's ear, and be would vote "aye."
One day, however, Ezeklel came Into
the senate with balr cut and a clean
ahave. He sat upright In his seat and
began to slaughter right and left.
State Senator George F. Wright look
ed across to where the senator from
Johnson was sitting and Inquired what
change had eome over the senator
from Johnson county. The other sen
ator replied that the appropriation bill
for the state university had now pass
ed both houses, and the senator from
Johnson was going to make up for
Clarke kept on punching heads until
the senator from Jefferson, Moses A.
McCold. rose and solemnly Introduced
bill for an act entitled "An act
repealing the npproprlntlnn for the
state university." A broad smile pass
ed around the room, nnd everybody
except the senator from Johnson saw
the Joko. But the spirit of levity pars
ed nwny from Kenntnr Clarke. He nt
once assumed hlx humble attitude, nnd
tho other boys voted him ns usual dur
ing the remainder of the session. lies
