United States marshal for the Eastern district of Arizona, all of whom are our- self, and signing his name Jim Hellso, left home last week for a busitess trip to St. Louis. As we took our place in the stage to drive to the railroad the band played: "See, the Conquering Hero Goes." That was us. If there is anythingin this ter- ritory we haven't got on to with both feet we don't know where it is hidden away. Our esteemed contemporary had heard the news that we were going east to buy supplies for the Kicker of[lee and mingle with the great world for a time, and he was on band to see us off. He /ikewise had his old gun along and fired three or four shots at us with the usual result. We beg. to repeat our former assertion that he ought to have been content to rmain tbe owner of a cider mill. When we boarded the train and pro- duced our dead-head railroad pass, the rand,actor took us at once. In our private graveyard lies the body of a brother of his whose eareerwasablotch on the escutcheon of the family, and the family have always been thankful to us for removing the wandering sheep and decorating his grave with trailing arbutus. We removed him without malice aforethought and as gently as we could and not until after he had kicked tn the door of our office and opened fire on us with two guns. It was our first adventure with din- ins and sleeping ears, but the conduc- tor was pleased to assure us that our conduct under the trying circum- stances was all that could be hoped for. No one who saw tm hndle a fork and // / HE WAS ON HAND napkin could have suspected that at home we were tn the habit of cutting our bear-steak with a jack-knife and wiping our mouth on our coat-tails. The berths in the sleepers bothered us at first, but we soon caught on to the racket and had both boots off before the conductor made a suggestion. In consideration of the feelings of certain timid passengers e gave the porterour guns to take charge of during the Night, and do not remember to have enjoyed a sweeter sleep. The Kicker, ld common with the great majority of Oiveadam G,alch, has been opposed to the rapid leaps and bounds of civilization, as tending to un- sex the bone and sinewof the great Western Empire. but from this date on- ward We shall take a broader and more liberal view of the general situation, exert if we lose half our subscribers and bring the number of victims in our pri- vate graveyard up to an even score. For the last five years we have ar- gued that Giveadam Gulch was the only place in America worth living in, tnd have felt pity for the poor critters who were obliged to put in time else- where, in our trip we ran across half a hundred towns which can give us fifty points and then win the game. Old Jinx IIewson,,who was born in the year one, and who thinks this is only the year two, will probably shoot at us for thus publicly stating our convictions, but truth ta mighty and will prevail. We may bc ousted from our post- mastership for stating that we passed through a hundred places having more saloons than our Gulch, with city hails twice as imposing, but we have always been a man to take chances. No band out "at St. Louis to welcome us, but as it was raining heavily, and all the bands were extra busy that day, we did not feel injured to any great ex- tent. We hadn't been in the town an hour before we felt that if they would coax a few cowboys into town and per- mtt a little shooting at telegraph poles and saloon fanlights, we should feel perfectly at home. At the hotel we rode upstairs in an elevator. Three months ago the Kicker had a half-page illus- trated article on passenger elevators, and editorially stated in the same issue that any man with a pair of legs under hits who would'take this effete way of beating the stairs ought to be com- pelled to wear a dress and bonnet. We have undergone a change of opinion. If the Blue Buzzard hotel at Giveadam Gulch doesn't put in an elevator this summer we shall cease to chew our fodder and take our nips at that cara- vansary. If one goes in the boys wll gdher to shoot it full of holes, but we shall be there to argue for civiliza- tion. We missed the free and easy manners of the GNIch at the hotel able in St. Louis, and it was something of a strain on the nerve,s system, but we came out of It alive and right-side up, with our- napkin shoved down in our coat- tail pocket for a handkerchief. The waiter made a faux pus in passing us a lot of quill toothpicks ilmtead of a cedar sliver, but as he had ever lived west of St. boats we did not lay it up gainst him. Called on the postmaster, az was our heard of our post office at Glveadam Gulch, and was ready to agree with us that any free-born American post- master wbo would lick on stamps for any critter with whiskers on his chin ought to be ousted at 24 hours' notice. He was also of our way of thinking in regard to shooting through the gen- eral delivery window to attract the at- tention of the clerk. He cannot go out and expedite the service, as we can, by following up the mail carriers and uttering an occasional yell or firing a few ramlom shots, but he is evidently a hustler. Also felt it our duty to call upon the mayor. After a slight delay we were ushered into his presence and he gave us a warm greeting. Exaggerated re- pairs of the doings in the common coun- cil-chamber of Giveadam Gulch had reached his ears and we were glad to set him right. When we hfformed him that only three of our aldermen had been wounded during the past year, and that we had not even been scratched by any of the shots fired at us as presiding officer, his opinion of the far west was much more favorable. The mayor of St. Louis does not carry a gun, and he could sot throw a lasso over a post ten feet away, but we left his presence feel- ing that he was a pretty good fellow. IIe may possibly be our guest this sum- mer, and though the boys will shoot at his plug hat and russet shoes he will come out all right. St. Louis is a large and busy city, about 300 times the size of Giveadam Gulch. We know we shall be shot at for making this statemenl, but let 'at go, Gallagher! There are more saloons, more stores,- dwellings, poker parlors, horses, mules, men, women, children and dogs in St. Louis than Giveadam Gulch will possess in the next 10.000 years. We are about a fly-bite com- pared to it. Before leaving home our bump of self-esteem was as big as a beer keg. It has now dwindled down to the size of a walnut and is still shrinking. Two weeks ago we wcre against civilization, even to patent corks in beer bottles. Next week the Kicker will throw wide open the doors and welcome anything and everything, -----.

Trimmed, Like a Woman's Gown, to Salt the Bayer's Taste. Gat differences of opinion are dis- severable among bicycle riders, as well as among dealers and nnufacturers, as to the relative merits of various tires, handle-bar and saddles just as there is in regard to tamps. The wheel made and sold by any particular house may give satisfaction to the whimsical buyer in two or three respects, but not in all. These facts explain the follow- ing remarks, offered by the Iron Age: "A feature of the western trade for the coming season is the preference of manufacturers to make contracts for the delivery of 'keleton' wheels, or wheels wit,hour tlrea, saddle and handle-bars. The jobbers who pur- chase these skeleh3.s will sell them in the same condition to retailers, mainly hardware merchants, who will then complete them according to the taste of the individual buyer. Somany styles of tires, saddles and handle-bars are now on the market, and so varying are the tastes of bieyc/e riders, that manu- facturers and jobbers are disposed to let the retailer assume the task of trimming wheels. This will bring about another change in the bicycle trade, if it becomes the general custom, as it will cause manufaetnrers of tires, saddles and handle-bars t seek the patronage of. retailers, whereas they have hithert almost entirely cultivat- ed the bicycle manufacturers. Recen,t- ly some enterprising Chicago business men have returned from South Amer- ica, where they have been introducing American goods, and they report that the European bicycle has been almost wholly displaced by American wheels, and that these wheels are largely of Chicago origin." Scheme Didn't Work. "When you stepped on that gentle- man's foot, Tommy, I hope you apolo- gized." "Oh, yes; indeed I did," said Tommy, "and he gave me sixpence for being sueh a good boy." "Did he?

LIVELY RUSSIAN GAME, it Has an UnDronouneeable Name, Bat It Looka Like Oar "Tip Cat." P. Kitty Kondacheff writes of "Some Russian Games" in St. Nicholas. One of them, bearing the name "Tchijick," is thus described: The game is like your game "tip eat." The word Tchijick, properly translated, means "finch;" and whether the game is so called on account of the constant hopping of one of the players, or from the way in which the wooden, "cone" is made to jump up and fly, is not known. The players may amount to any number, but five or six is the best combination, so as not to keep the others waiting too long while the "striker" and "hopper." as I will call them, are at work. A circle of about six feet in diameter is traced on the ground, in the center of which is deposited the so-called tchijick, or finch, a round stick of wood, six inches long, having each end shaped something lille a cone. It is either placed across a small.hollow in the ground, or with one end, resting on a bit of stick or stone an inch or two htgh. The players, armed with short, stout sticks, then draw lots so as to determine by chance who is to begin the firs serv- ice, and who is to do the hopping; the others range themselves in order around the circle, the striker taking his place near the finch. The signal given, the svriker serves the finch--that is, he gives it a smart rap with his stick over one end, so as to make it jump high np and while in midair follows this with one or more sharp raps, sending it as far out of the circle as possible--the farhher the better. The hopper then sets off, and must arrive at the exact place where the finch falls, hopping" along on one foot. Lifting it up from the ground, he must send it back, with abe aid of his stick, into the circle again. If it fall on the line, it is reckoned in. Should he fail in doing this, or m arriv- ing safely on one foot to where the finch lies and back to his place again, he remains hopper to the next service. If, however, he passes both ordeals safely, he takes his place among the players again, while the striker turns hopper, the boy next in order taking his place. The score is reckoned in the fol/ow- ins ways A certain number is fixed upon previous to beginning the game-- say, 25. Each time the striker hits the finch he scores one. Now, good players manage to touch it several times while in midair, short, jerky cuts from the wrist following swiftly on each other; sometimes as many as five raps are given in quick succession, the striker always remaining within the limits of the circle. He scores the number of raps given, and the player who first reaches the number previously agreed upon wins. The striker is thus chan gad after each service, while the hopper, un- less he has good muscles and a sure aim, often has lO go through the hopping process during many turns, thereby sometimes missing his own turn of serving. If the stakes are nuts, candy, or anything of that sort, then each boy loses to the winner as many as are wanting in his score to make up the 25. THE WHITE ELEPHANT. Indiana Pay Eorneat Devotions to a C irons Pachyderm. A circus and menagerie is now mak- tng a tour through the Rocky moun- tain country, and, according to the Ne- braska State Journal, the white ele- phant it carries has made a deep re- ligious impression on the Indian visit- ors to the show. At a Montana town a party of Ban- neck hxdians entered the menagerie tent and began to inspect the numerous dens of wild animals with the unemo- tional interest of the taciturn red man. Presently, however, the old chief was seen to starl, and then, with a cry, he ran toward the platform containing Keddah, the white elephant. The other Indians followed, and, encircling the chief, azed at the curious animal with expressions varying from abject fear fo the most pronounced form of awe- stricken wonder. Slowly the old chief drew from under his blanket a small square of deerskin and held it aloft. In the center, worked in white beads, and showing consummate skill in the design, was the figure of an elephant. The chief pointed to the design and then at Keddah, while he hastily ut- tered a few guttural ejaculations to his companions. Suddenly, much to the surprise of the crowd that had by this time surrounded the party, the entire group of Indians threw themselves upon the ground in a position of adora- tic0 before the white elephant. Pres- ently the chief arose, followed by his companions, and then, replacing the deerskin Under his blanket, led the way into the big tent. An effort was made to discover the meaning of the strange proceeding, but the Indians refused to talk. An old hunter, however, volunteered the In- formation that the Bannocks have a tradition that ages ago their fathers ease from the land of the white ele- phant, and that they had come to the circus for the express purpose of pay- ing their devotions to the strange beast. If this was the true explanation a.uother ltlk has been furnished in that chain of proof which seems to connect the American aborigines with the people of the far east. --Nothing is wicked in this world ex- vept fidlure. A GIFT FOR MOTHER. How to Make a Fire Screen That Will Prove Very Acceptable. There are so many useful and accept- able presents that a boy can make for his parents, sisters or brothers, that is really quite unnecessary for him to lay out much money in gifts. A very serviceable article for such purposes is the fire screen shown in the illnstratton, intended for an open fire- place, where it is often desirable to ward off the direct heat. For ordinary uses this screen should be made 42 inches high and 40 inches wide; from the lower style of the frame to the floor the distance is 18 inches. To begin with, obtain four pieces of wood, each 42 inches long, four inches wide, and three-quarters of an inch in Ironical Ifs. If your enemy is too big to whip you should forgive him. If a man has plenty of sand he always has lots of grit. If tte office has no salary attached it is to seek the man. some men would conceal what they know they would be more popular. If justice was really blind she wouldn't be able to wink at her favorites. If a woman's grief happens to be a wrinkle even time cannot heal it. If men were serpents all the women would want to be professional snake-charmers. If a man trusts to luck for his happiness he will be in luck when he gets it. If you convince a man against his will you may have to do it over again next day. If you monkey with a buzz-saw you may be compelled to write shorthand the rest of your days.

Secure these joints with glue and screws, sc that a firm union will be the result, and at the bottom of each leg cut a tennon, as shown at C. In the center of the foot pieces eat mortise, as shown at D. The tennons can be ct with a chisel and saw, while the mortise should be made with a large bit and afterwards trimmed square with a sharp chisel. Cat the parts accurately, so that they will fit snugly and make a good joint with glue. Then a long steel-wire nail can be driven through the edge oi the foot-piece into the tennon, and int0 the other edge of the bottom piece. This nail---or a long slim screw, if you prefer--will give much additional strength to the union.

These braces should b made of tire iron one inch and a halt in width and one-eighth of aN inch in thickness. If the wood selected is oak, ash, pine. white wood, or birch, and it is thought desirable to stain it before varnishing, a suitable stain can readily be ob- tained at a paint or hardware store and applied thinly with a brush; when dry, a coat or two of furnifnre varni.h or hard oil finish can be laid over it. The facing and backing may be o almost ary pretty and dnrable mate- rial; but it must be of good body and not too thin. Figured denim, cretonne or tapestry cloth are excellent for thi part of the screen, and they may be found in any large dry goods stor FINISHED SCREEN.

The appearance of the tck heads and the iron strap braces may be greatly improved by painting them dead black. Use two coats of ivory black, thinned with equal parts of japan dryer and spirits of turpentine. The final result will be a very hand- some little screen, sure to give pleas- ure to the recipient; and its usefulness cannot fail to be appreciated when tt is placed before a hot fire on winter evenings.

Presently the .engine began to creak, md the engineer oiled it. In a few minutes it creaked again, and the engineer doctored it again. Twice more the engine squeaked, and the man began to smell a rat. Pretty soon there was another squeak, when, slipping up behind the ventriloquist, the en- gineer squirted about half a pint of oil down his back, and then said, gravely: "There! i guess that crank won't squeak any morel" Feeding War Elephants.
