occurred. Ho wae then a farmer iu Dai*

ins been prohibited by tbe federal aa*
tlmrities. aud be was plowing corn when
lie beard tbat an order had been reveiveil
by (Jenei-al McArthur, at Solum, to ur-
rent bim and wnd him to Washington
for complicity in the Lincoln assiivHlim-
tion. Senator Morgan went Into his lioiiae
���nd attlrod bltmwlf In bit Confederate
general's uniform, with starred epaulets,
belt, sword and otber accoutermctits
complete. Tben be saddled bis plow horse
and rode lo Srlma, where bo presented
himself to Ueneral McArthur.
"Hood morning, geueral," he said.
"Oood morning, general/' replied Mc*
Arthur, recognising Morgan's rank. "For
13   what am I Indebted for this visitV"
"I bare come to be seut to Washington." remarked Morgan. "1 uudorstaud
���rou hare an order to tend me tbere."
Ueneral McArthur expressed surprise
to learn that the eitsteuee of tbe order
was known and smiled when Ueneral
Morgan told htm that es'Confederates
bad not lost tbeir habit of acquiring Information. Then be remarked thai the
order would uot be obeyed, or at least
not uutll tbere bad been a reasonable de*
lay. This did uot suit Morgan, wbo
wanted to go to Washington to present
���owe claims for destroyed cotton aud
was quite willing to travel at government
"1 want to make one request of you,"
said Morgan. "When 1 went Into the
war. I had $15,000 In gold In a bank In
8elma. Wben 1 came back from the
war. 1 found that my gold bad giv;n
place to $15,000 In Confederate money
With that $15,000 1 bought half a box
of tobacco. With some of the tobacco I
secured coffee and sugar and shoes for
my family, and the rest of It went for 17
���botes. I kept those sbotes until tbey
were fat. enough to kill, and now I have
more meat than any otber man in Dallas
county. When I go to Washington, gen
i eral. 1 want you to put n guard aronnd
my smokehouse."
"���Ueneral." replied McArthur laughingly, ",v<m bnd better go home and guard
the smokehouse yourself, nad, by tbe
way," he added, "the restriction against
your practice of tbe law will be removed."
Senntor Morgan went back to his family nnd IiIh plow, and he never heard nuy
thin* of ihe order from that day.--V.'nnli

For your informati ntbe board submit tbeir usual oa.h statement nud balance sheet, duly oertfled by tbe auditor.
On the 17th February latt, tbe hoard
met for organisation, when Mr. Wm.
Brydon was elected president, and Mr.
A, J. Andrews was elected v copresid
ent, and the various standing oomn.it-
tees were struck.
Early in tbe year tbe association was
notified by the oity thut they would
have to vacate the premises tbey bad
hitherto ocenpied u offices in tbe city
ball. Tbia necessitated the board renting tbeir present offices, over the bank
of Hochelaga, on Main street.
Al in tbe put, tbe statement* attached deal very fully with tbo question of receipt! and disbursements, and
it is therefore nnnece sary to make any
extended reference thereto In this
connection, however, it may be pointed
out that tbe sum ot S7U4.8*! was expended in settlement of accounts properly chargeable to 18K8, and also tbat
a period of fourteen months is covered
by tbe scooouts herewith pre-ented.
It will be noticed nuder the head ot
disbursements, tbat the large sum of
118,SCO was paid out In' prises and
premiums, a very large per centnge ot
which, ns will be men by referring to
the detai s, being dilturbuted amongst
eibibiton outside ol the oity of Winnipeg-
Tbe association has psld to the olty
ot Winnipeg tbe sum of |l,deo, being
tbe annual instalment of sinking lund
and interest oa tbe loan created for
making permanent improvements, and
in a ditlon to tbli slim, nearly (4,000
wai ipent in improvement! to tho
buildingi and grounds, wbioh belong to
the oity
The board was able to spend the 'urge
sum of nearly 1411,000 this year, In
furthering tbe work of the association.
This amount, witb the exception of
abont 11,100 private subscriptions to
the priie Hit, and 14 000 grant d by
tbe provfnoiul government, and 10,000
by the oity of Winnipeg, was made up
from the revenue derived through the
holding of the eibibition.
The admissions this year amounted
to over f 44,800.
Yonr board have mnch pleasure in
announcing tbat negotiations are pending with tbe railways, by wbich it is
hoped that exhibitors will be pnt to no
expense tbii year in bringing their exhibit! to the fair, and tbia f tot In it-
Mil should prove of very great advantage.
Shortly after last year's fair, four of
the horse stables w.ere bnrned down. A
fifth stable was considerably damaged,
but it bu since been rebni.t out ot the
funds of tbe association. The loss was
appraised at 14,878.67, nnd this
amount hai been paid by the insurance
companies to the oity, am ii still iu
their hands. These figures, however,
do not show lu the association's accounts in any way.
Your bo rd have also to report that
tbey have secured from the Dominion
government a grantof |l,000, to be ap
plied towards tbe cost of constructing
a Dominion goverum nt bniidiug on*
the grounds, to be used for diip eying
the products of the province of Britiih
Columbia, and the result! of tbo work
carried on at the government experi
mental farms, a condition of tbii grout
being that tbe building must be con
itrnoted entirely of British Oolnmblti
lunib.r, and aocommodation provided
therein lor an officer of the department
of tbe interior, for tbo purpose of distributing immigration literature,
Tbe board hu again tbe pleasure of

Offering to bet Thut nobody c-.iii eet

atomacb has beeu a fururlte pttstinu'
of Michael Meyer, a Newnrk (X. .1.1
hone dealer. He has put forth the
proposition for 20 years as a menus of
forcing a man to hack down In nuy
ordinary dispute, aud It has been gen
orally successful. But In Octolu-r last,
when be propounded It to Wllliiitn
Wi'uage lu Solomon Oury's ptaee. Oui-y,
wbo was tired of bearing it, said, "1
will take tbat bet for $10."
Meyer was delighted, aud arrange*
ments were made to meet at Oury's
at 7 o'clock the next morning. Wrange
held the $.0. and there was a uot her
witness. Meyer arrived nt the appointed time, felt of tbe eggs, squeezed one
of them aud Bald lhat It was not liard.
Oury slipped both eggs Into his mouth
at ouee, munched them and swallowed them. Meyer left In disgust, pro
testlug that the terms of tlie bet had
not been fulfilled. Wrange paid the
bet to Oury. ami Meyer brought suit
for $T>0 In the Second district court,
The case came up lief ore .lodge I'red
rick (i til Id tbe other day. The court
was crowded. Emanuel Loweosieln
was counsel for Meyer, nnd upon
Wrange's side were ex-Coum.v Prosecutor Elvln W. Crane, the unsuccessful
candidate for governor of tlie state;
Commissioner Charles Herr of the
board of works and William C. Nlcoll.
Commissioner Herr eudeavored to
eliminate tbe gambling law feature by
laying that thin case did not come un
der the oet because eating eggs was
not n game of elm nee, but n trial of
skill, an act of showing skill or pro
flclency nnd capacity. Edward Stern
and Mr. \Vrange testified tbat Oury
ate the eggs fairly, and the latter said
that be bad taken the bet because it
became monotonous after MO years or
constant repetition. He snid tbat he
ate two eggs at once, not one before
the other, and thnt he bad not eaten
anything since dinner on tbe previous
Tbe Jury announced a verdict of *10
for Meyer. Tbat wns all he wanted,
but It does not convince nny of the people on tbe otber side thnt Oury did not
ent tbe eggs.
