The courts of the Waslllngton State Court of of the Catholic Order of For- esters will please take notice that the convention of the State Court will meet in Everett on Tuesday morning, June 9th, All Delegates and State Court Offio rs are expected to be pres- ent at the opening of the convention. Tile Foresters' meeting Monday eve was of more han passing interest in as much as a few strong speeches en- livened the hours , all looking toward the strengthening of the bands, of the faithful workers for more general in- terest. The glee club was put under the direction of Brother MoKew, who is a most willing and capable leader , of men who have some disposition to promote tile social interest in the court. Music is the gift that makes man like unto angels. It soothes the sobbing infant, it heals the broken- hearted mourner, it charms the artis- tic soul and holds tile secret of courage for the forest brave. It speaks a va- rious language and has the power of mellowing the hardened sympatlnes of meu. In the Foresters court it will do its share to nmke the meetiugs a dream of delight and rob the fertile minded agitator of half his opportuni- ties of entertaining tile assembly. The story of the racom tripwas full vof interest to those who did not go, and the reports must certainly have exaggerated the hospitality extended by the Taaoma brothers. We d. not deserve all the nice things that the delegation said Tacoma did for them. We have only to thank our good neigh- bors and be equally hospitable *o them when opportunity presents itself. / The Fourth of July excursion see,as to be in the balance. There was a social on the balance too, but it fell off and now we shall go on living a plain kind of life until next fall. Brothers should keep track of the dates when assessments are due. It and in case of death dependents can not hope for assistance. A good dclegaton of our members are going to Everett on next Tuesday to attend the State conventon of the order. A game of baseball is one of tim features of the day. No doubt we I will have a hand in it Win. B. Miller was elected to membership. DO-OVERS. Theroisa clus of canned salmon, known [s "do-overs," which strildng ly resemble much of the wit aud hu- mor of current literature. These are cans which have not stood the pre- scribed tests ancl must be again gone over. They are never offered as first class, and command a small price. The cromer has his own trademark, and is interested in seeing that none but first class goods are sold under that mark. In the literary world, unfortunately, many first class goods are degraded to the-do over ranks. A certain class of i writers find it easier and more profit- able to borrow and alter then to origi- nate. They are perhaps a symptom of the fatal facility engendered by this age of machinery: The writer, ,like tim carpenter, has to some degree ,lost that intellectual muscle which is !he result only of strenuous exercise. In th0printing Office as in the factory the machine has taken control from the  brain and rendered it subservient. Economy of time, labor and cost have been dearly gaiued at Ltlm expense of intellectual and artistic effort. Anecdotes familiar to the average school boy appear and reappear in mutilated form. Stories copied from foreign'sources arc presented as origi- nal, or at least without any sign that they are otherwise by many maga- zines. It s hoped that by change of time, name, place, etc., the plagmry will pass muster. The crime is not so much in the theft itself as in the at- tempt of the artisan to better the work of the artist. Wc do not like to see an old and dearly loved fl, iend mu- tilated and deformoa almost beyond reougnition. Many a witty spark leaves his father's capital on his pcregrina- tmns and returns after many days in worse plight than the prodigal--in I that his own sire would not recognize him. Happily for them many of tim fatners bare departed, and are spared the anguish of seeing the miserable state of their well conceived offspring. Let a man gain national prominence and his memory is ladened with anec- dotes, mostly trivial, pointless and  vile. Sir John A. ,McDonald is a good instance; the revered Abe Lincoln a better. To have fathered all the tales ascribed to them would have been necessary the longevity of a patriarch, and the working day of a down-east- farmer in haying time. There is at lresent on circuit a Lincoln story. On one occasion, Lin- coln, hearing surprise expressed thus a certain man's "hair should be dark and his moustache white, exclaimed "Oh, if you only kuew how Jones works his jaw, you would no longer wonder. This is but a variation of the well known Thackeray story: In- quisitive old lady: "Mr. Thackery, how is it that your beard is dark and your hair so white?" "Madame," can, elikc aflash from Thackeray, "I work my liead more titan my face." Here are two stories---one taken from a magazine of recent date, the other from Rollin, a French author of note. Shah of Persia Story. "An amusing story i told of a late Sbah of Persia. Tharuler had the idea that he was a poet, and was in the habit of reading his verses to his cour- tiers, who listened politely and praised without stint. After awlfile, howev- er, the Shah appointed a new poet lau- reate, nd found him a#nan who dis- dained to flatter. On cue occasion the sovereign read to him one of his now poems, and demanded an opinion of it. Shall I tell the truth, your mjcs- ty? Most assuredly, answered the Shah , having no doubt but tile truth would bo very complimentary. Well then, I must say, !saw no poetry in the lines you read. The Shatl mucl insulted cried out to those standing near. "This fellow is a donkey. Take him to tbe stable." After a time, the Shah, who really valued the Laureute's opinion, pro- duced a new set of verses, and ordered his unfortunate critic to bc again brought before him. "Here are some new verses," he said, "I shall read them to you." After he had conclud- ed, the Laureate started for tim door. "Where are you going?" asked the Shah. "To the stables,your majesty." It is said that the Shah was won by the simple frankness of the Laureate / read no Iuore poems. Denys et Philoxine. Dionysius, tyrant of Syracuse, had at times a mania for verse, making and thought himself at poet of no mean =:erit. Little content with his own, hc compelled the approval of all those to whom he read his poems. A swarm of spiritless courtiers and hungry poets made it a duty to confirm him iu the high opinion he had of his own gmius. Philoxenus, a poet of high repute, alone refused to permit himself to be drawn along by tim flood of praise and flattery . One (lay at table, Dionysius having regaled him with one of his poems asked his opinion of it. Being pressed Philox. enus frankly pointed out its many de- fects. The tyrant, little used to such plain speaking was much hurt and thinking such audacity was born of jealousy ordered his guards to take the poet to the stone quarrys which served the purpose of the galleys of la- ter times. 'he whole court was affiiated and alarmed and interesting itself in behalf of the generous Frison- er obtained his release the next day. He was restored to the royal favor and to seal the reconciliation a great ban- quet was at. once prepared to wifioh were invited all those who had been preseut on the former occasion. The feast was marked by great joy and gayety. When all had feasted long and well, Dionysius a suitable enter taimnent did not fail to bring forward one of his latest efforts which treated of a very tnviai subject. He was careful to select certain choice morsels which he had worked with great care and considered he had ,,,aster pieces. These he read with evident great self complacency and satisfaction but to crown his joy he must have the ap- proval of Philoxcnus whose good opinion he valued the more since the poet unlike the others had not been prodigal of praise. The poet profit ting by his former experience when asked by Dionysius for his opinion turned to the guardsab ut the table and in a voice gayly serious said: "Lead me again to the quarrys." Pleased with the poet's wit the prince laugl|ed heartily and bore Iron no ill will.--Errigal. BALLARD. Received too late for publication last week.

Lewis.] Soon after reaching St. Petersburg \\;.. on my globe circling trip I ound an American who had Just arrived that morning, a man from Stamford, Conn., named Joshua H. Bidwell. He was the inventor of tim wire clothesline and, mving patented it in England, France, Germany and ether foreign countries, had arrived In Russia with the same object in view. He was a thorough Yankee from top to bottom. I had scarcely shaken hands with him when he informed me that the po- lice already had a spy on his track and added: "I'm here on straight business, I am. I'm here to patent and sell the right to manufacture the only galvan- ized wire clothesline ever invented. If the police let me alone, I shan't hurt anybody, but if they tackle me they'll wake up a baruful of humblebees." Fresh Meats, Fresh Vegetables and Fruit, Go to It was Mr. Bidwell's intentions, aft- er knocking about for two or three days, It) visit the American legation and solicit advice on how to proceed to get hts patent. Wc set out to St. Pe- tersburg in company. It was the cause of oct coming to grief. 24he spy who had been following hln| appeared to be more alert ilmn before; but, fearing lhat Bidwell would do something rash, I dld not mention the fact of our being dogged, lie did not catch on until the fiernoon of thc second day. We theL were knocking about on foot and were in the national aquarium when he walked straight up to thq spy, tapped him on the shoulder and said: "Look hero, Mister :[:ln, have you any business to transact with us?" IIc sI)okc Ill English, and the Rus- sian could not understand a word of it. He evidenlly got the drift of things, however, nnd seemed greatly surprised and annoyed "it being addressed in that offhand fashiml. We went out, turned into Warsaw place and entered a wineshop. Bidwell presently went to the door to see'if the spy was around and almost bumped into him. "Now. then, you mcau looklng son of a gun, but this is a little too stccpF' ex- claimed the Yankee. "I gave you fair warning, and now'!-- He seized the fellow by the loulders and slammed him about iu a terrific manner, but it wasn't more than a minute before five or six policemen were at hand and both of us were un- der arrest and being hurried away. Wc were first taken to a police sta- tion about four blocks distant. There we were scqrclmd, sta'ipped of every article that our clothing might be over- hauled and held for about an hour. We were not questioned at all, and if the officlal in charge understood anything we said he did not betray the fact. Bid- well wus so provoked by the situation that he lived a whole broadside of Con- nccticut oratory into the official, ending up by threatening a suit for $100,000 damages, but he might as well have saved hie breath. By and by we were taken to headquarters under a strong escort and there ushered into the pres- ence of the chief of police. We were taken in dngly. My turn came first. The chief consulted a memorandum and begtm: "You arrived in St. Petersburg ou the 9th. You claimed to bc an American tourist. Yoo received a letter from Par- is on the 10th and one from Itamburg on the ]lth. You have spoken disre- spectfully of the police to the proprle. tor of the Park hotel. You were very disrespectful toward the officer who was ordered to follow you about. Do rou wish to leave St. Petersburg by he evenin g tl ida ?" I rcplied that I had comc to visit tha city as a tourist and had planncd to re: main for at least u month. The chief touched a bell, and two police officers appeared. Ont of my own money they bought me a ticket for the German frontier, and both rode ith me for the first 300 miles. Wha happened to.Bidwell 1 learned long afterward from his own mouth and tbrough the American press. Ite thougM it beneath the dignity of a free born American citizen to bend the knee to the autocrht of St. Petersburg. Th charge against him was more serious Itls haggage at the hotel lind been overhauled, and his saml)les of wire clotheslines were at once "spotted" aa a menace against the peace of the czar. Ile also had laid violent l|and.q on the sacred body of a police spy, and that proved him a desperate nmn if not a conspirator. He was defiant wlmn put ca examhmtion, and the up. shot wan that he was taken .to the lorfress of St. Pe[er to be held for fm'ther investigation. That simply meat to be held at the pleasure of the chief of police. No papers were ever served on hl,n nor was he ever taken into court. ' He was put into dark, damp cell, confined to prison fur,. tnd treated like a criminal. It win, three months before he saw uny other face than the Jailer's. Then a pohce official, came to ask him if hc woul(l agree to leave Russia and never return in case of release. "Not by a long slmt!" was iris ready reply. "For every month you hold lm in here I'll dc:nand $50.000 extra, ami If Uncle Sam doesn't back my lawsul every Bhlwell In Connecticut will racy, taino's Hall. out of the country." At the end of seven months he was et t liberty, He started for the American legation, hut was intercepted and taken to the depot and forced to enter a truin. Two officers uccmnpu- nled hhn to the frontier, and he re- ceived such a solemn warning against attempting o recross the line that bc never tried it. Hc filed a clahn (ill reaching the United States, but it wa pigeonholed and heard of no more. M. QUAD.
