In WaVr Tinmtes.
A ship goit.g out to sea,
On the dull horizon's rim,
Sailing away from me,
Sailing away with him.

A wv rh and wcnv, bwii''^-
V\ i iLi none on board for me,
As it cleaves the waters dark.

Women come trooping down
Happy are they tonight;
And all the sober town
Is wild with joy and light.

They pass me as they go,
But I turn my eyes away;
For tho head I loved lies low,
Close to Manila Bay.
-Ave Maria.
*** --
Your Fiileiwd.
Have you a friend? One you might
quite o'erlook
While fortune beamed; but when the
threatening clouds
Of misery closed round, has proffered
hand
With grasp that said: "I love you,
trust you, dear;
Though downward still together we
will go--
Through yielding, fern-choked mire,
by fire-fly lamps.
Fear not; for, look-a rift beyond! Joy
C fit's
To greet and welcome Night's belated
guest."

Did you, with shivering, backward
glance confess
Your own frail faith in God's embrac-
ing love,
To lear: "Look not into the vanquish-
ed past,
All heedless, crushing other tenderer
lives,
Condemned to pale and wither in this

THE SURROUNDINGS.
About twenty feet to my right was
Water street, at my back across the
sidewalk stood a large warehouse, in
flont, acr uiiihe alley was thecorrall
of a livery stable and to my 16ft, to-
wards Commerce street, about twen-
ty feet away, was a civey of "these"
ever fervently engaged in throwing
dodos, and coppers changed hands
like magic. This did not disturb me
in the least; but they continuously
eyed me, and I soon saw that 1 was
the center of attraction, and while
they cast their glances at me they
talked in low tones-almost breath,
lessly-but I thought they took me
to be a spy upon their game.
I FELT SAFE-
Did not have the least suspicion that
they had any design on me; indeed
I telt just as safe as though I was in
jail. Soon t: e major part of them

The Lightship.
When boats come home across the bar,
And winter's sunlight dies afar,
When green and purple dusks creep
down
And hides the harbor and the town;
Each night far out to sea a beam
Of pale, wan light sends forth its
gleam
Across the peaceful, darkening tides
And marks the lightship where she
rides.

When tempijst-tosed the ships slip by
The foam-hid headland, and the sky
Is torn with wrack of scudding cloud,
And winds of winter cry aloud;
Lo, through the roar of crashing waye,
Above the tempest's moan and rave, :
A voice comes o'er the troubled tides,
And marks where yet the lightship
rides!
-Richard Stillman Powall in The Cri.
terion.

Whe Bides His Time.
Who bides his time and day by day
Faces defeat full patiently,
And lifts a mirthful roundelay,
However poor his fortunes be,
He will not fail in any qualm
Of poverty-the paltry dime
It will grow golden in his palm,
Who bides his time.
-James Whitcomb Riley.

"I am indebted to One Minute Cough
Cure tor my health and life. It cured me
of lung trouble following grippe," Thous-
ands owe their lives to the prompt action
of this never failing remedy. It cures
coughs, colds, croup, bronchitis, peacmo-
nia, grippe and throat and lung troubles.
Its early use prevents consumption. It
is the ouly harmless remedy that gives
immediate relief,- R. F. Brackin & Son.


I


,ing in thle air, I was upon mvy feet,
pistol in hand. It was a double ac-
tion of the best pattern, but had
rusted somewhat. At twenty feet I
had a bead on his backbone and
pulled the trigger.
SADLY PERPLEXED.
I lelt sure there was one less ladron
(thief) on earth; but the hammer
did not come back-was frozen down.
I tried it with my thumb, still sore
from a small cut, and it was no go.
Again I tested the trigger with the
same result, and it did look so funny
to see hin running away with my
watch and chain. 1 could hardly
believe my eyes. If you have never
been there you can't begin to realize
how funny it is.
THE CHASE.
The thief was about twenty years
old, short and not stout. Had I sus-
picioned his business, crippled as I
am, I could have caught his hand,
jerked him on his head and stamped
him to eternity in less than a min-
ute; but lie was too far away, now,
for he had almost gained Commerce
street, while I had fooled so long
with the obstinate pistol. Putting it
away, I made chase, and the boy of
seventy summers ran like a grey-
hound and stayed with the fox, al-
thoughli he turned corner after coiner,
until lie reached the dense throng of
the city and was lost in the crowd.
Selah!
THE CAUSE.
The chain was a one-fourth gold-
filled-largo and loud-cost i$25 at
wholesale. As it was so large, I
couldn't sell it, and thinking I could
stand the racket, had appropriated it:
but the natives, as the darkey said,
"could not withstand" the glare ind
glitter. This, coupled with, the fact

Kills Without Hittlng.
What is lyddite? The high explosive
thus called from the name of the small
Kentish W.wn and gunnery center
where the experiments with It were
made is nothing less than pieric acid
brought into a dense state by fusion.
Picric acid is a bright yellow sub-
itance freely used in peaceful Indus-
tries for dyeing purposes. It Is ob-
tained by the action of nitric acid on
phlenol oi" carbolic acid. It burns very
violently, and, owing to the tremen-
dous blast produced by the explosion,
the destructive effect of a bursting
shell filled with it is some 11 times
greater than that of a shell filled with
powder.
All lyddite shells are equipped with
percussion nose fuses only; hence their
explosion takes place on impact in the
following fashion: The percussion fuse
Ignites a picric powder exploder, which
in turn ignites the bursting charge of
lyddite, the detonation of the fuse and
of the two ( 1p.i. i.- s inside the shell

due more to air concussion than to the

ments. In other words, in the case of
a lyddite shell bursting in a group of
men, the greater number will be killed
not by pieces of the shell, but by the
blow of the suddenly compressed air.

One of Lamb's Pranks.
A pretentious poet got his verses sub-
mitted to-Charles Lamb by a friend'
just before the poet was to meet Lamb
at dinner. Lamb found the verses to
be feeble echoes of other poets, and
when the author arrived he was seen
to be as empty as his verses. This
awakened Lamb's spirit of mischie-
vous waggery. At dinner he said In the
course of conversation:
"That reminds me of some verses I
wrote when I was young," and then he
quoted a line or two Which he recol-
lected from the poet's book, to the lat-
ter's amazement and indignation. Lamb
was diverted immensely, but kept per-
fectly serious and quoted more lines in
connection with another remark, beg-
ging the company to remember how
young he was when he composed them.
The author again looked daggers at

Lamb capped all by Introducing the
first lines of "Paradise Lost" t"Of
man's first disobedience," etc.) as alsc

SOne Hle Didn't Get.
SThe following story of Ben Butler
waq told by a man who said he was
present on the occasion:
"Shiortly after the war General But-
ler-delivered a lecture at Pike's Opera
Ijlouse in Ciunctinnati. The general was
well on to the climax of his speech
when slowly from the tiles overhead
descended a large wooden spoon on the
a idof a string. Down and down it
came until It reached a point two or
three Inches above the speaker's head,
and then It stopped.
"The audience, of course, was con-
Tulsed with mirth, but owing to his
-well known visual infirmity the gen-
,eral was the last to discover the spoon,
:and Indeed would probably not have
:noticed it at all except that in making
-a euaphatic gesture to Italicize a point
!his band struck the suspended spoon.
lookingg up. he recognized the ene-
* any 'and took in the situation at a
iglauce. Without any sign of embar-
,rassment or confusion he detached it
,from the string and with the remark,
'llello. there's one 1 didn't get,' laid It
.down on the stage and triumphantly
ifinaished his address."

Army Flosrina.
Soon after General Gatacre was ap-
1polnted an ensign in the Seventy-sev-
enth foot he turned out with the com-
pany to which he was attached to wit-
ness the flogging of a soldier. The
man, who had been convicted of a seri-
ous offense and was later to be drum-
med out of the corps, took his punish-
ment badly, screaming a great deal.
-Ensign Gatacre shut his eyes and turn-
Swhite- in the face, as though he
would faint. When the punishment
-waa over, be remarked to his color ser-
;geant, "If I see much more of this, I'll
sell out."
The noncomm" responded, "You'll get
used to it in time, sir."
"Used to it? I'm sure I never shall!"
responded ithei ensign. Flogging in the
army was swuon abolished, however,
and the future uflaiil remained in the

-"Is the Young Man Sate"?
Communicated.
There is no more pathetic and
striking passage in ,the Bible than
this question of King David's, and
Ihis lament over a disobedient and
wayward son. "Is the young nian
safe"? The eon his soul clave to it,
spite of his transgressions, and when
the tidings came that he was slain
the king was much moved, andl he
went up to the chamber over the
gate and wept, and as he went thus
he said: "0, my son, Absalom! would
God 1 bhad died for thee; 0, AbsN-
loum, my son, my son"!
])avid's exceeding bitter' cry is
echoed by thousands of fathers and
mothers throughout the land. Are
the youtng men-are our boys safe?
(safe trom the terrible fascination of
the gambling table, the awful curse
of strong drink, immorality, the
reading of. infidel literature? Are
they? The Holy Bible contains
many touching allusions to young
men. It says: "llisi, speak to that
young ,n,,' heo the inean-
ing? Speak to our sons, our brith-
ers, the young men ttilt whom we
come in contact! gently, kindly tact-
fully! The reply to the above query
was: "While I was running hither
and thither the young man was
gone." Is it so with us-absorbed
in the duties, -ares antd pleasures?
SNeglect the opportunities until they
are swallowed up in the vortex of
worldliness.
How pathetic and yet how true to
life is Hall Carne's description of the
. the old bishop's grief after sentencing
- his only son to exile, when Le-pros-
trates himself in anguin'.h of spirit
ad lifts up his hands to God, pray-
Sng that it may not be said of limit
. in heaven: "Write ye this manl
childless."
S Oil, sail, terrible fate, to miss a
loved one through all eternity.
Mothers and fathers, are your sons
- safe?
s Young man, are you safe?
There is only one sure refuge-one
immttovable rock; fly to that; cling to
that and you will be safe.

bot's hen on the pretense that he want-
ed her to sit. As soon as he got the
r ben he broke up the sitting habit and
- got her to laying eggs. In the next
- six weeks she laid two dozen eggs.
Y These he sold for 40 cents a dozen, and
a with the 80 cents that he got for them
he bought the hen. Now the question
arises whether the original owner of
- the hen was fooled or not.-Somerville

Pay Day In China.
New Year's is the national pay day
In China. All accounts must be squar-
ed up at that time, and the man who
can't raise money enough to pay his
debts has to go into bankruptcy. The
laws are such that the creditor can en-
ter the debtor's house and take what
he pleases If there Is no settlement.
To prevent such action families club
together and make itll sorts of coin-
promises to keep the business repu-
tation of the clan. New Year's Is a
great day for the pawnbrokers. Their
shops are crowded with people who
want to redeem their best clothes be-
fore the new y-ar. There are crowds
also who want to pawn other things
in order to get money to pay their
.ebts. Pawnbrokers receive high rates
of interest, in which they are protect-
ed by the government.
The ('hinese paint the whole country
red on New Year's (lday in more senses
than one. Jted is the color which with
them denotes good luck and prosperi-
ty, nnd all the New Year's cards and
invitations are on paper of that color.
Every child gets its New Year's pres-
ent wrapped in red paper, and red in-
scriptions are pasted over the doors of

Every one remembers the anecdote
of Dr. Holmes when he was enthusi-

exaggerated length.
"Don't you get awfully tired of this

sume that I could stand it for hours."

tain friend of his came out of the west
to see him. One day. just after leaving
the White House. this friend fell in
with it fellow westerner in the White
House grounds, and a heated encounter
took place, which suddenly terminated
by the general's friend knocking the
other man down and out.
"The matter was hushed up, but the
general, naturally indignant, called his
friend to account, saying: 'John, you've
treated me and the office I hold with
much discourtesy. Why did you do
such a thing?'
'Well. It was this way. general,' re-
plied the now thoroughly penitent one.
'You know there was bad blood be-
tween us, and he had set all sorts of
stories going about me. Just after
leaving you I ran into him, and he at
once accused me of doing a certain
thing. As it was a lie I only laughed
.it him. Then he accused me of some-
thiing else, and that being also a lie I
i'entd alihlit ii liga Ibut his third accu-

Deafness Cannot be Cured
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portions of the ear
There is only one way to cure deafness
arid that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed condi-
tion of the mucous lining of the Eustach-
ean tlh1e. When this tu'te gets inflamed
you have 4 rumbling sound or imperfect
hearing, and when it is entirely closed
deafness is the result, and unless-the in-
flammintion can be taken out and to is tube
restored to its normal condition, hearing
will be destroyed forever; nine cases out
often are caused by catarrh, which is
nothing but an inflamed condition of the
mucous surfaces.
We will give One Himadred Dollars for
%ny case of deafness (caused by catarrh,
Ahit cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh

The Jigger In Uganda.
beeral sepoys were suffering from
that African pest, the "jigger," whose
selentiflc name of Pules penetrans de-
scribes him and. his habits concisely
and well. He is an exact reproduction
in miniature of the common flea (Pulex
Irritans), but instead of merely inflict-
ing a comparatively innocuous bite he
'burrows under the skin, close to the
toe nalls for preference, and then pro-
ceeds to propagate the species.
Unless he is very carefully removed
he sores cause the most intense irri-
tation and may lay a man up complete-
ly. The usual method of removing him
Is to widen the hole in which he has
entered and then extract him, intact if
possible, with a needle, care being tak.
en that no eggs or young are left be-
hind. The place should then be dressed
to prevent festering. It Is not advisa
ble to march much after removing jig
gers, but unfortunately it Is frequeunly
unavoidable.
I may mention that Lieutenant Colo-
nel Macdonald once told me that dur-
lug his first visit to Uganda some ua-
.tlves caught a leopard in one of the
banana plantations whose feet were so
Atho'oughly diseased from jiggers that
he .was quite unable to -move or to de-
fend himself.-Blackwood.
Hea4acte often results from a disor-

A correspondent, passing hurriedly
into the room of the committee on riv-
ers and harbors pulled the knob off the
door.
"How can I get that fixed, do you
think?" asked the congressman. "Shall
I get the carpenter or the locksmith?"
"The locksmith, I suppose."
"No, sir. Were I to send for the lock-
smith he would tell me to consult the
architect of the capitol. He has no
authority to fix doorknobs. Doorknobs
are permanent fixtures and are solely
within the jurisdiction of the architect
of the capitol."
"Do you see that bookcase there?"
said the committee secretary. "I caus-
ed the carpenter to paste some cloth
on the inside of the grass doors in order
that the books might net show. IHe
did the work. but when he had finished
I noted that he had not cleaned the
glass before he put the -cloth on. The
thing looked so disreputable that I
asked him why he had not cleaned the
glass. He told me that the glass was a
permanent fixture and that le had no
authority to touch it. but that the plac-
Ing of the cloth upon it was a tempo-
rary matter and was entirely within
the province of his labors. The whole
thing's got to be done all over again."

She Didn't Buy It.
The following story will show the
high price that Illustrators of reputa-
tion command for their work: A young
woman who had. received treatment
from Dr. S. Weir Mitchell of Philadel-
phia and was very fond of him decided,
at a recent celebration of his birthday,
that a fitting and appropriate gift
would be the presentation of one of the
original drawings of Mr. HIoward Pyle
for "'Hugh \Vynue." Forthwith she in-
vaded The Century company's sanc-
tuni aund. with her fingers tenderly
gra,-:p:ng ;a new $10 note, asked to buy
the dr;'wimig. She was informed that
thtet' pictures were never sold unless
exceptions were made in cases where
the i 'tist himself or the author wished
to u:make thle purchase.
".lust so." said the young woman.
"I wish to present it to D)r. Mitchell."
"Ah. in that case," said the gentle-
man at tihe !esk. "we shall take pleas-
ure in giving it to you at the exact
price we paid for it. which is $100."
The little lady in her excitement drop-
ped the $10 bill. The gentleman at the.
desk picked It up for her and smiled
while she burrie'dly took her depar-
ture. The good doctor was presented
with a less appropriate gift that year.--

Born to Lead.
."You remember young Carpley, who
used to have an ambition to be an ac-
tor, don't you?"
"Yes."
"Well, he's playing a leading role
now."
"You don't say so! By George, I
never thought he had it in him!"
"He's with an 'Uncle Tom' company
and leads the bloodhounds in the street


procession."-Chicago Times-Herald.

-nay, with a feeling of deep thankful-
ness- the wealthy merchant tailor on
his first trip to the orient drew near

vile your memory. To your sin I owe
my prosperity."-Chicago Tribune.
What Offended Her.
Milk Dealer-What did you say to
Mrs. Sharpe yesterday when you call-
ed for her money?
Driver-Nothing particular. Why?
Milk Dealer-She's sent word that
she don't want us to serve her any
more. You must have said something
to offend her.
Drivtit-No. I didn't. I simply asked
her for the money for the week's milk.
She says, "You'd better chalk it up,"
and I says, "We do that already."-
(Catholic Standard and. Times.


A Poor Hero.
"How did the hero of the story come
out?" he asked of the lad who had
just rolled up a novel and got up to
stretch himself.
"He was a chump," was the reply
in tones of disgust. "He had two
guns, a knife, a broncho, a lasso and a
bottle of pizen, and yit he let de villain
punch de breath out of him and git
away wid de heroine and a million
dollars in cash."-New York Sun.

Bobsy Meade of the coionii fi oce

him a six foot drop, and, I hassure you,

Kidney trouble has
L become so prevalent
that it is not uncommon

afflicted with weak kid-
Sneys.If the child urin-

urine scalds the flesh or if, when the child
reaches an age when it should be able to
-control the passage, it is yet afflicted with
bed-wetting, depend upon it, the cause of
the difficulty is kidney trouble, andthe first
step should be towards the treatment of
these important organs. This unpleasant
trouble is due to a diseased condition of the
kidneys and bladder and not to a habit as
most people suppose.
Women as well as men are made mis-

His Mstnake as to Amertenn Girls.
A Louisville girl who was recently in
Germany met a young E ugllsh otf'.ier
who was In the same city. and. In fact.
in the same house with her for two
months, studying (German for his pro-
motion. Like most Europeans, lit' had
the usual nabsurd kIens about the girls
of this country. who. in the mindiis of
the untraveled foreigner. are rather
hoyden creatures. who snoke nil have-
other mascul!ne traits.
After dinner one day in the early ne-
quaintanceship of the couple the ofl-
cer offered the Louisville girl a ci:a-
rette, and upon her refusing it ihe said:
"Why, I thought all the girls in tihe
United States smoked."
"So we do," *replh'd ,the girl. "but
never cigarettes. only pipes. If you will
g.-t that P11'' off-the nlnntelpl<'ce in the
next room I shall be charmed to smoke
with you."
Not suspecting the joke she was plany-
Ing on him, the officer brought the pipe
and tilled it, and it was not until be
saw the wry faces his friend made in
attempting to carry out the joke that
he appreciated the situation. He was
continually telling the American in a
tone of surprise that she was just like
the girls at home in England, and her
rejoinder was:

BABY STUART.
A Popular Misconeeptlon of Vatn-
dyke's Clever P'alnting.
If the number of houses in which
there hang reproductions of a certalil
drawing of a little child's head after
Vandyke could be enumerated, it
would cause astonishment. There if
nothing surprising In the popularity
of the head. But whatever genius
named it "Baby Stuart" is responsible
for many ludicrous misappreihensious.
There are women who believe that this,
head was painted by Gilbert Stuart.
There are women who have asked if'
it was the infant of A. T. Stewart.
Again, there are women who know
that it depicts one of the children of
Charles 1, but who do not know which
one of his children it is, whether it is
a boy or a girl, or who painted the
originaL The head is that of the sec-
ond son of Charles 1, and the name of
the child was James. Vandyke paint-
ed him time and time again. One of
the family groups of Charles' chil-
dren by Vandyke hangs in Turin.
From the head of little James in that
group a copy was made by Raffaello
Canevari, a drawing, and that copy
hangs in the Academy of St. Luke at
Rome. From Canevari's drawing the
countless army of photographs, en-
gravings, lithographs and prints which
have spread to the uttermost parts of
the earth proceeded.
Let us change the title, for we think
"Baby Stuart" has done duty long
enough. Why not call him "Little
James?" Then, at least, all his wor-
shipers would know his sex. He be-
came King James 11 of England In
1686, and, according to eminent au-
thority, he gave- evidence of possessing
all the vices of his race without any
of its virtues. Ills reign was short
and infamous. He was in exile at St.
-Germain when he died In 1701. Such
was the chubby and guileless looking
royal baby in the cap.-Boston Tran'
script.
REMOVING A RING.

A Jeweler Tells How to Take Off One
That Has Grown Tight.
Most girls who have had baby rings
have had trouble In removing them
from their fingers. "There is really no
necessity for all this ado about remov-
ing a tight ring," said a jeweler. "In
fact, as in everything else, ,the secret
of success lies in knowing how to do it.
Here is a recipe that I have found un-
failing for removing a tight-ring, and
there is no painful surgical operation
involved either: Thread .a needle flat


In the eye. using thread that is strong,
but not too coarse, then pass the- head
of the needle under' the ring. Care, of
course, must be used hi this, and It:
would he best to soap il.. '. tn, dl ibefori'
beginning. The neeuie h having been'
passed through, pull the th-erad through
a few inches tow;:rd the hand-so."
By this time the jewk',r had -passed,
the needle and thread uirnd'r the ring'
on his own finger and was I I' rl t'Y

long end of the thread around the fin-
ger toward the nA il Ia this manner,
then take hold of the short end and un-
wind it-so. The thread, :ths ii.s.n;g

A Story About Wftlberforce.
Before he became a bishop he had
beeu archdeacon of Surrey, and his old
irchdeaconry became a part of his lat-
_'r bishopri( of Winchester. At a meet-
ing of the clergy at Clapham his chap-
iain told him that an old Dr. -, who
iand beer. many years in the diocese,
was vexel] at having been forgotten.
"Yes," said the bishop; "I have not
the smallest recollection of him, but I
will .make it all right and will go out
iand speak +o him. Which is he'?" He
was pointed out, and the bishop made
his wvay to him:
"Sy dear Dr. --, I have not had a
mnoment for a real conversation with
ou. I need not ask how you are after
all these years. Do you still ride your
tlay ln lre'"
"Yes. my lord. How good of you to
,rC!nmitber her," etc.
The chaplain, who was within ear-
dot. said when he again came near the
'is;;;ip:
"Ti'n you did remember Dr. -
"'ftcr all?"
S, i :i li.t of it," said the bishop. "1

great deal of abuse from you, but If
you should go a little too far it rebels
and refuses to work any longer by
breaking contact with its companion
cells, which It can do by withdrawing
its long arm and getting itself ouf of
circuit. But this rebellion is conduct-
ed by whole groups of cells acting to-
gether in full harmony.
Now, the object of this "strike" Is
simply to avoid overwork, for each
Oiny cell has stored within its minute
space only a certain amount of energy,
but if you put on the high pressure
this Is easily consumed by the opera-
tion of the brain, and the organism
breaks down from exhaustion. Now,
take the first of the problems just
stated. When a person takes too much
to drink, the cells In those patches of
the brain that are responsible for the
conduct of muscular movement be-
come affected and the man staggers.
When the dose is very large, the
cells., which, although stupefied, Lave
tried to keel) their master on Ilas legs
now cease working; and the man sleeps
like one dead. Finally, if more than
',nougnh of alcoholic drink be taken.
ire effect on the cells Is to paralyze
:hein. and the unfortunate man dies.

as we'looked there came the roar of a
tiger. I could scarce hold the horses
while Nandha, whose limbs were stiff
with fear, scrambled Into the back
seat of the mail cart.
"When a tiger puts its mouth to the
ground and gives voice, no man may
tell whence the sound comes, so I
staid not to see, if I might, where the
danger lay, but gave the horses free
rein.
"As we cleared the end of the bridge
Nandha screamed, 'Bag, bag!' ani
glancing back I saw the tiger in full
pursuit of us, and within 100 paces.
"'Blow!' I 'commanded, handing the
bugle to Nandha; but, though he took
it from me, he appeared not to under-
stand what he was required to do.
"'Blow!' said I once more,, shaking
him, but he took no heed of me. a'n(
was as a man who walks in his sleep
So I put my arm round him and lifted
him on to the front seat beside me, and
even as I pulled him to me his hea.;
was drawn over his shoulder by the
spell of fear. There was a foam on his
lips and on his beard, and he shook so
that I feared he would fall off the mail
cart.
.'Be brave, Nandha!' I shouted to
him. 'The beast is lane, and we shail
soour leave it behind.' For answer, he
turned his face to me for one instant.
.iil his lips framed the word '1.,a

"udldenly hlie laughed like a child

and say'.ing: 'How beautiful is my lord:
