One of the odd suited in contest for bttle seven by phase of political life is the manner in which ambition men are cnt off in the lower of their youth for causes which, to the average mind, teem trivial and abeurd. Some one has said that life is cutde up of the bttle things, and that this is true, and that political death is also the result of trivial causes, more than one statesman can testify. Congressman Anderson, of Kansas, was not reuomimttisl because his constituent discovered that while at home he lived in a plain little hme. and was a plain, blunt man who sought not the luxuries or frivolities of the wor' , in Washington lie resided at the swcllit club in town, the Metrojiolitan. where the chef receives a salary of $.).0H) a wine fliw yer, and where expensive like water.

But him a liar without resenting it with one accord they lifted their hands Junes B, Weaver, the Iowa greento holy horror and exclaimed: "For back and lender, was heaven's sake don't do that Don't print once beaten for congress because of his use in a moment of weakness of a free puss sent him by the president of a railroad. A Tennessee member failed to come back because he made a habit of writing letters to his constituents with a typewriter. The typewriter was something new in those days, and his constituents said they did not want a man in congress who was totjazy to write his letters and bad them bftnted. It is almost pitiful to see congressmen working and studying and scheming to maintain their popularity. They sit np nights writing letters and addressing public documents. They sacrifice their selt respect in telling white lies to constituents who make application to them for office and other favors. They cultivate the press of their districts with an assiduity that must in time become painful to all concerned. As an illustration of this take Gen. Wheeler, of Alabama, who was known to the Confederacy as "Fighting Little Joe." He is a poor man, and there are A CONGRESSMAN DRIVES OCT. plenty of ambitious fellows in his dispicture of my house." "And why not, trict, so Wheeler works the "public prayr "Because it would ruin me in document and speech racket," as memthe eyes of my constituents. If they saw bers call it, for all it is worth.

If it were to become known that at Washington I keep a stable with seven horses, five kicles. a coachman in livery and a footman with gilt buttons they would turn me down by a majos'.ty of 8,000." Some statesmen are so cautious that they try even to keep their constituents in ignorance of their social position at the national capital "Of course my wife is one of the leaders of society here, and it is good of you to think that she is the most popular and brilliant woman in town, and that her receptions and teas are among the few really notable social events, but please do not say so in print Withont meaning to do so yon would AGRICULTURAL REPORTS. harm my political prospects very much.
