COULDN'T HOI,I> THE PKESS GALLERY.

. In reference to.the lack of attention exhibited by the congressman, a good story is told of llepresontative Crano of Texas. Mr. Crane is a good talker and quite popular with the nesvsgaper men. He soon appreciated- this fact and grew indiscreet, frequently announcing that he was the only member who could hold tliB full press- gallery for any length of time. A. certain correspondent determined to punish Mr. Crane for his boastfulness und prepared a "scheme. On the day ·\vhen Crane was to make a long speech the press gallery was packed at 12 o*'clock. Every seat Avas occupied, and the 40 correspondents, who are without seats, crowded the steps of the gallery and blocked the doorways. All were apparently absorbed in the proceedings of the day. After a while Mr. Crane arose, threw back the lapels of his prince Albert coat, expanded his chest and began. In a moment he glance^, at the press gallery to see what effect he was creating up there. To his amazement and horror every man had risen and with faces, wearing a moat disgusted expression, were hastily leaving the gallery. The movement was noticed ' by every person in the house. In a second the truth dawned on the other members and a titter ran through the assemblage, while Mr.'Crane was almost floored and and difficulty keeping his feet. He'never igain boasted of his ability to hold the pi-ess gallery.

· It-is no exaggeration to say that the pres»nt adm inist.ration is as heartily disliked by the. republicans as it is despised by the Democrats. Comparison with the Cleveland regime reflects considerable green light on Mr. Harrison's conduct of his official 3utie<4. His puerile spirit, negativeness of character, economical principles as applied to has private existence, have brought him no little contempt, A iair illustration of the disregard in which he is held by the Republican congressmen occurred the other flay. Representatives Allen of Mississippi L'ud Houk of Tennessee met by chancy. Bot.h are jocose. "Hello, Allen !" said Mr. Houk, ''tell me the Uggest Ho in you wallet." Mr. Alhm cogitated a luonumt and replied that his stock of untruths was exhausted After a brief silence Mr. Allen remarked: "Say, Houk! Isn't this administration the most successful we've ever had?" '"You couldn't have told a bigger one if you had lied for a month," said Houk, yith a yell of delight, and Mr. Allen immediately saw how promptly he had complied with Houk'sjKigirtal request. AX AHTJST'S SCHEME. An enterprising artist from one of the Southern States recently desired an appointment as consul to a town in-Switzerland, believing he could refresh his artistic 'aste by communion with the snow-capped Alps and quaint Swiss valleys. Ho luul in eye to business, and very properly concluded that without backing he could not hope to attain his wishes. So he painted the portraits of the congressmen from his State and presented them to the originals. The representative were highly pleased and thanked the young man. They did not, however, betray the interest in his cause he could have wished. So the artist ca,me to Washington, and for a week cast jibout for some schema to attract the President's attention art'd gain his favor. He at last-hit upon apian. "Baby McKee" was to be the basis of his plot. The artist set to work with a will and soon had a life-size portrait of Master McKee prepared. ,

He arranged with the owner of a store on Pennsylvania avenue to display the picture iu his show window. The picture was soon commented iipon and Mrs. Harrison heard of it. She hastened to the store and overwhelmed the proprietor with questions the burden of which were inquiries for its'-price. The proprietor replied that he did not know the price, but would acquaint the artist with Mrs. Harrison's visit. As soon as the sagacious painter heard of the pleasurable exciteynent. 'he had caused in the President's household he. performed a master stroke. He bundled the picture under his arm and took it to the white house and presented it to Mrs. Harrison with his compliments. Of course she was delighted. The president was called in as well as the entire family, and the artist was the hero of the hour." He is said to have nailed that coveted consulship. MAX IHM.SKN.
