The strange animals that bowed before our prince were emblems of the foreign nations that will yield to bis power.

By this time Kaptun Pusher had kum hack agin, and Jim Teester asked him what kind ov preechln he liked when the weather and bizniss permitted his goin. The kaptun straitened up and pulled hid whiskers fur a mlnlt, and then he sed he bleeved his fust choice was the sarmint that pitches into prize fytln ruff shod, or was down on keepin the market house in New York open on Sunday. He rather liked settin under preechln that was alwas a shootin off both barls against meanness that was a thousand miles away, and .never snapped a cap at anything that was going on in Muskeetur kounty.

When the kaptun went baclf to wait on annlher kustomer, nobody sed. n word fur ex mutrn as five minits, and then Unkel Peeleg took the big red hankychuff from around his neck and wiped his eyes and blowed his nose, and then sed he wundered why It was that we cudent git more preechln dun in Glderville ov the kind that Kdp-tu- n Pusher liked, and it was the ov all ov ub that it wudent be so hard fur any ov us to go to meetin if sech cud only be tbe case.

One of the principal decorative features of the new city hall In San Francisco was to have been a great white-metangel, with outspread wings, the top of the big dome. This on poised angel has been the subject of much crabbed controversy between the gruff mayor, Mr. Sutro, and the commissioners. The mayor criticised the angel severely and rather ridiculed the whole thing. But the big uugel was at last finished and ready for hoisting to its place on the dome.
