Mysterious Billy Judson was caught by the Argus reporter this moruing and was asked for the exact reasons ot Alger's withdrawal. Said he! "Beiug a triend of Gen. Alger and knowing what I know, my advice to him would be to stay out of the senatorial race. Now knowing what I know is what the newspapers want, and I am not at liberty to give it out." "Are there any men who will jump into the contest against McMillan?" "Wel!, thre are men who would like to be senator. I guess Benton Hanchett, of Saginaw, would like it. General Duffield would like it also." "How about Ping?" "Why he hasn't got the entrance fee even. Bat then I'm out of politics now anddon't know anything about it. Why, I teil you, there isn't au oflice on God's green eartta that I would run for. I'm entirely out of it." Those within hearing laughed at such an incongraity as Mysterious Bill out of politics. It would be like all the buck wheat taken out of winter morning pan-cakes. "1 mean it. I am going to take care of what little money L have got and try and get along. There comes a time when a man has had enough aud ought to quit. And I'rn going to." And Mysterious Bill shook his head sadly as if he was parting with his best friend when he was saying good bye to politics.
