Myv Little Boy-Bcau.
It is hidden away with the keepl.akes
Of summers and winters ago--
A love-lette'r yellow and faded
And creased, from my little boy-beau.
The envelope reads, "To lmy dearm-t,"
The pages ate Lattered and torn,
The childish handwriting is blotted,
But, it breathes of life's roeiatce morn.
The little boy-beau he is sleeping
Where his regiment laid him to rest,
In a uniform buttoned and braided,
With a flag and asword on his breast.
But it is not the dashing young soldier'
In saler and sali that I see,
But the little boy-beau with his rtin.-
lsb--
He will never grow elde' to mne.
Siuce, a girl of eleven, I found it
Slipped into my grammar one day,
The years \iith their rains ald thi-1ir
roses.
Have rapidly glided awny.
Lovers and hearts they have brought.
me,.
Tears and my portion.,f r)0c,
But never so pure :1n ah ll lion
As the love o. m3y little boy-beau.

Ter tek Br'er Ephraim 'way!

In country en in town;
'"Lawd, wharfo' dis delavin'
O0, sen' dat cherryoot down
I all de time a-preachin'-
I constant watch en pray!

Wuz sleein' fas' en soun'
De chimbley kotch on fire
En de blaze leap all eroun'l
Dey beat arid bang ter wake 'im
Wuss dan a big bass drum;

De fiery cherryoot come!"
Br'er Ephraim holler: "Cl'ar de way-

Whilst all de sinners scoff:

Missed.
The days are not so areary,
And the hours faster go,
The waiting is less weary,
We all have found it so;
And it keeps the tears from thronging,
As far from friends we roam,
To know a dear one's longing
To bid us "welcome home."
If parting be- "sweet sorrow,"
'Tis sweeter far to know,
When you return tomorrow
One face with love will glow.
That fond arms will caress you,
And a tendervoice will bless you,
And whisper you were missed.
-E. Maude Conoon,in Boston Globe.


Poilon Ivy.
Bathing with alcohol will prevent in-
jurious effects from poison ivy, or, if
the poison has taken effect, wetting
the affected part with alcohol, to which
sugar of lead has been added, until a
milky appearance is obtained will give
relief. The wash is poison and for ex-
ternal use only.

A Torturing Suggeatloa.
The doomed man shuddered. "There
will be no music when I march to the
scaffold?" he asked anxiously.
They reassured him.
"There was a march played when I
was married," he muttered. "I-I could
not bear to be reminded of that!"-New
York Press.


A Wedding Tombstone.
"So you never heal tell of Melin-
dy Barbour's wedding' toinbstontv?"
said grandma inl a tone o(f surprise.
"For tihe land's sake, I thought ev-
erybody knew about. that."
I confessed tile most altject ignor-
ance ami immediately drew tup to the
fire. This was partly to gain infor-
mnation and partly because, although
the fireplace was wide and deejp-
tliloatedl and big logs were 1,I: zing in
it, theie weie biting ll:llights of
stinging November air coming in at
the loosely fitiinig door. For grand-.
niu,tler would not be pi.l i'tale.'l to
leave the home that Imia been heri'
for fiity years, and which now show-
ed- some signs of decay. She sat
knitting vigorously by the firelilght,
for, althliotghl .,il had all tue modern
Cinlveniteii'c) of heating and lighting,
hli big filel.-ltU cast its ruddy glow
out into the room thliliigh all tlhe
nl wilitehr evetiinmgs. I was ani an-
gular sc:;oolgiil of fill .el then. with
a great love of the romantic, and was
on a four weekt' visit to the old
homestead: It seemnied never to oc-
cur to grlnma that, having been
aise'd in a different part of t ite coiiii-
try, the happenings at Ragged Cor-
ner (whlrie she lived) would natural-
ly be unknown to me. She always
expresse-i tresh surprise at my ignor-
ance on these subjects. After knit-
ting a few minutes in silence, she
began:
"Yuu'vo seen the old stone house
down on the bank of the riyer, all
shut in with pines and" evergrePons?
It's nigh a hunmdeil years old. When
I was born it had been built tenl
years. WVicn I was a young mnar-
lied woman tlie Barbours came to
live thliere, and they was pioud, ihigh-
feelin' people that nobody could get
acquainted with. That's what made
'eiu take it so dreadful ihaid when,--
but here 1 am, way ahead of my sto-
ly. '.on see, .Mr. arbour embezzled.

.* **-* ^ ',
i-e'-it tou ijiut. Allter lie hadlt tiLuh
there a year he up and hiIung himself,
and that is the last of him so far as
my story goes,
Then his wife and little boy shut
themselves up in the stone house and
never went out the gate hardly.
She'd had a good deal of schooling,
the woman had, and she taught him
herself as long as she could, and then
ie bought books and studied by him-
self. He tried going to school when
he was a small boy; but one of the
scholars threw it at him about his
ather, and Mortimer nearly killed
him, and after this his mother kep'
iim home. And she was such a
proud woman, was Mis' Barbour, and
lofty and severe in her ways. Sheo
wouldn't let nobody sympathize with
her, which everybody wanted to, as
there's so little going on at a place
ike Ragged Corner. Mis' Barbour
.as real selfish with lier grieL. so she
;ot herself disliked, besides folks be-
in' suspicious after thle way her lhis-
band turned out. What did they
live on? Ohi, tle boy farmed it, and
they do say he wrote books on what
they call natural history, though to
my mind it was tile most unnatural
stuff 1 ever heard tell of,-all about
beetles and bugs \vith three hundred
muscles in their heads, and as could
carry twelve hundred times their own
weight on their own backs, which
everybody knows he must have got
up as he went along. They were
dretfully taken up with each other,


he and his mother,, and she believed
everything he said was so, even about
tle bugs and beetles. But she was
his own born mother, and that ex-
plains it.
When she died Mortimer like to
went crazy. He planted her grave
with vi'lets and pansies, and at the
head was a white marble monument
he had gone to the city for-nothing
nearer would suit him. But he didn't
display no taste. Nothing on it, my
dear, but the old lady's name and the
date she died--not an angel, nor a
cherub, or a lamb, or a broken rose-
bud; nor a bit of verse. And yet he
always seemed to set store by her.
Then, Mortimer, he just stuck to
the old house; same as ever; though
now he was all alone. I u9ed to
wonder how it seemed to him late at
night, hearing' the swaph of the river
and the sighin' ot them pine trees.


He wore his hair long, as was thel
Custom it. theIn day, anld it was
curly up at tlh enls like Ite pictuitre
of ,John WVeslty. liBt lie had eye"'
that went 1-lAit thr.iilgh you ani
caine out at the back cit your head.
And ie a ever set 'o"it into the meet-
ing-hounse, oliow.
Now, lhe was tie last man in the
village l'ld ever sai'i woull get mar-
riedt. But as enroi ihs yiou set there,
where. the little niilliner, 1Melinila Me-
Allister came intii the il-:ie, he was
stutick. That waitit riolthing ,trango
-all the y'uing felluos \a.--la- t,
mtind you, she was *trulk loo. No.
you ouuhlll'i 'a' tlhougit l it. Every-
body warned her, anil tihl iher about
his father's hanging' hiuir.eli'iti li.,in,
and how queur lhis Ini lier was and
that AMurtiimer was as odd-as Di-):k,'
Iiatblnrii atiRI wouldn't conei to no
good. She ] i-tenedi, with hier eyet s
big and cool anid a little hot priclll
of rei on her chei'ks like a daub ul
red paint, but she never said a word.
That was lelinily McAllister all
over, never to say a blessed wortd,
but go and do jist as she saw fit.
Fi.-,t we knew they vas engaged,
and it was given out i:i meeting.
Next day her aunt she lived with
came in to see me, and wrung lher
iandsd, saying' she wouldn't be sur-
prised if Meliinly wars muriiered be-
fore the year was out. What can
you think of a nman who lives like a
helimit. and hada crooked father and
a peculiar mother?
But we wasn't prepared for the
worst. A day or two before the wed-
ding, ill comes old Mis' Johnson, and
says, 'Sliu. up the doors tight,' says
she, 'and the winders. I've got
something to tell you that'll make
your hair rise up,' she says. whisper-
in'-!ike. So I shut the dooi, she
a-workin' her hands together like
one possessed. lot'ss about Melindy,'
she went on. 'He's been and got a
tombstoue for ier.' 'Who?' asked 1,
as if I di ~'t itkno but Nm knees
khi ckekIl tIio'ler I. lelt & t isicik.
'Mortimer ;arbour,' says slib. 'My
grandson, Jbolhnnie, was after a bird's
nest in a tree over in his yard. The
limb broke, and down he went right
onto the roof of the old cornhouse,
that hasn't been used for years. It
went in under him like tinder, and as
soon as he could pick himself up and
found no bones broke, what should
he see but a new white gravestone,
a-settin' up quite pert in a corner
against some rubbish. He went np
to it, and he says as true as the Bible
he saw 'Melinda Barbour' cut on it,
and the date she is a-goin' to die.' 'I
don't believe it,' says 1,' but I was
all a-faint, and had ,to go and make
us each a cup ol tea so we could bear
up under it. -
As soon as I said I didn't believe
it, Mia' Johnson said we'd go our-
selves and see. And we did go, Mor-
timer bein' away in the fields, aind
got into the cornhouse. It was to-
wardc dark, anil we shook with the
cold, though it was a warm day in
June. We'd brought a bit of candle
with us, and Mis' Johnson lit it, and
then we saw-land sakes, child, how
scairt you look; don't get so near the
fire, honev, you'll be all ablaze.
Where was I? Oh, we saw the stone,
just as Johnnie said, a real grave-
stone of white marble, and on it the
name 'Melindy Barbour,' with the
date 'Sept. 5, 18-,' below it. But
the rest we couldrn't make out. 'He's


goin' to let her live three months,
may heaven forgive him,' says old
Mis' Johnson, meaning' different from
what she said.
The next day I went to Melindy,
and told her the whole truth. And
would you believe it, she said she
thought Mis' Johnson and I had no
business prying about other people's
affairs? 'If he had bought ue a
thousand gravestones l'd have him
just the same,' says she. So they
was married next day in the meet-
ing-house, but Melindy was white as
a ghost and she tremnbled so she could
hardly walk. They went right away
on the cars, and we threw some old
sheos after 'em, but all the wishin' of
joy was make believe, and I never
saw a bride with such a white, set
face, never looking at ter husband
nor yet at un.
They wias away nearly thie e
months; then they came back to tihe

Bet and Waxer.
"What's the difference between a 1ei
and a wager?" asked the man who
thinks there are too many words nl the
English language.
"A bet," said thd friend who always
wears a dress coat after 6 o'clock, "is
something you make with a man,
which has to be paid, no matter who
loses. A wager is something more rer
fined. It's made with a woman and lg

Search developed the name of John
Peters, fot whose marriage t license
had been isgu'ed two years before.
"I thought so," said the woman.

L'owder in an Old Cistern at
Montgomery, Ala.
While excavating for a new build-
ing in the rear of an old gun store on
North Perry street, Montgomery,
Ala., worknmen found an old cistern.
Investigation was made and 49 kegs
of powder were found in the cistern,
carefully arranged. The powder has
been in the old cistern for yeaas, as
no one can be found who knows of
the existence of the cistern.
There are many conjectures as to
who placed the powder there. One
is that it was placed there by a band
of early settlers to hide it from the
Indians, and that the settlers were
all killed in battle with the red men.
Another probable solution is that it


That far, fair spring of which I sing,

And I am glad, sweetheart that we

If on,. is. to r-ally do good by gar-
glin -thlnt 1s, If one Is tq, insure that
the fluitl shll reach the posterlor -wall
of tchs pharynu-tae ofse must be held
and thde head nineste be well thrown
barnk while pprforimling the gargling
process. By gargling In the usual way
only thel ntorlor surtce o the ph nuvula
and soft halnte and the bone of the
tone are reached. But by holding
the uo.-'o and thrn owing the head well
back wheu gargling the medicament
reaches eyery surface of the pharynx
very effectively.
The comparttlve value of the two
methods can eIe tested by painting the
prsterior surface of the pharynx care-
fully with a strong solution of methy-
lene blue and tlihen letting the patient
gargle with water in the usual way,
hynu it will be found that the water
ej,*ctvd will be eilar nid unstained;
th.q lit ithilm gargle tignin. holding the
nose r.nd throwing his .bend well back,
when the ejected fluild will be found
stalned, and an Inspeetion of the
pharynx will show that the blue has
been washed away.
This Is a thing worth remembering,
for many observers have maintained
that gargling is not only useless as a
method of medication, but sl quite in-
effectual even as a means of cleansing
the pharynx.-Charlotte Medical Jour-

A Pamous Kentucky Hotel.
The Phenix hotel is in one sense the
oldest hotel in the whole western coun-
try, for It has, with varying changes,
continued to exist ever since the year
1800. It was here that Aaron Burr
lodged In 1800 while engaged In his
daring conspiracy to make himself the
head of a new empire and was here
met and welcomed by Herman Blen-
nerhassett, the cultured but unfortu-
nate Irishman he had so completely
fascinated. Here, as far back as Jef-
ferson's administration, Democrats and
Federalists, in knee buckled breeches,
ruffled shirts and dangling cues, talked
redhot politics. It was the scene of a
sumptuous dinner to Lafayette, and
later was the stopping place of the
wily Mexican chieftain General Santa
Anna. During" the civil war, while
Lexington was held by the Confeder-
ates, it was the headquarters of Gener-
als Bragg and Kirby Smith and before
the struggle ended sheltered General
Grant. President Arthur has also been
its guest.-Lexingtonl (Ky.) Observer.
Jack 'Was Glia Too.
A Salt Lake City paper reports that
a tall, gaunt woman, with ginger hair
and a somewhat fierce expression of
countenance, lately came to the county
clerk of Boxelder county, Utah.
"You're the man that keeps the inar-
riage books, ain't you?" she asked.
L'Yes, ma'am," he answered. "What
book do you wish to see?"

The Typewrlter and the Bye.
There Is the general opinion among
oculists that the eye is much relieved
by the general Introduction of type-
written matter. A recent medical work
upon diseases of the eye gives a great
many proofs In substantiation of this
opinion.
The characters are so large .on' the
leys that there Is no appreclable'strald
on the vision, and when dexterity is at-
tained the eyes can scarcely be said td
be used at all. A vast strain is taken
off the eye by writing with the type-
writer instead of the pen. but the ad-
vantages of reading the typewritten
matter are even more Important from
a ediual point of view, and the strain
upon the hands is also slight.
It Is said that a person can work for
eight consecutive hours, with slight In.
terruptions, without the bands being
conscious of fatigue. In using the
typewriter the additional labor of fo-
cusing the eyes calls the muscles Into
undue use, and the result is that many
defects of vision which would not
probably be discovered-under normal -
conditions are brought to the front:-: :

SA Story of Amos Cummings.
One summer a number of years ago
Atmos Culnmimigs passed two weeks
on a pilot boat and took Ernest Jar-
roll, the author of "Mikkey Finn
: Idyll's" witn him for company. One
day a great storm arose, and the pilot
boat was tossed about on the waves
like. as chip. Every minute a: wave
-+ would dash over the deck and threaten
to carry evwrythlng away and swamp
the boat. C'lmminga and Jarrold were
, In the little cabin,, the former lying
in a bunk Intently reading a book on
the French revolution. Jarrold poked.
dis head out to ,look at the storm,
'. when a mountain of sea water fell
with a boom on the deck and filled his
eyes with spray.. The boat gave a
fearful lurch and careened until it
seemed that she most turn completely
over.
'This Is awful, Amos," said Jarrold.
"I'mi go:ng to put on, a life preserver,
for i don't think the boat can stand
St manyv minutes longer."
"Oilt, Ikeep quiet, And let me read,
Mickey," said Cummings, never lifting
; i',s yves from the page. "The men
.ej this li;.it draw a regular salary to
lReep her afloat."-Saturday Evening

"Tse Boy ^W M'flenefa -fy t
"The other afternoon," said the man
, In the box office of a theater, "a boy
- came to me and said, 'Are these any
good?' and I took from him two front
, row seats for that night which had
, been torn into a hundred pieces or so
- and then cleverly pasted together
. again. 'Oh, yes, my child. But how
- did tills strange accident happen to the
tickets?'
"The boy replied: 'Why, papa came
e home with them last night and showed
- them to mamma, and he seemed to be
L in such good humor somehow that
) mamma thought it would be a good
o time then to tell him how she owed
s over $100 for provisions. She told him
of it, but he got so mad that he said
that every night now he wouldn't come
home till after 12 o'clock, and he told
mae for heaven's sake when I got mar-
ried to look out for a sensible woman.


SAll the time mamma laughed, and he
Swas getting madder, and so he said she
Shouldn't go to the theater with him
after that, and le tore the tickets up
and rushed out somewhere alone. He
ain't back yet either, but mamma don't
care. I picked up the pieces off the
carpet and pasted them together, and
If you'll exchange the tickets for mati-
Uee ones I guess I'll come down on
Saturday with some other fellow and
take in the show.'

Nerves and Hair Picking.
"Persons whose nerves are in any
way out of gear should not pick hair,"
observed a well known specialist in
nervous diseases to a reporter, "and
Indeed 1 am almost willing to go fur-
ther and to say that they should -not
handle mattresses or pillows stuffed
with hair. The tactile nerves, the
nerves that are located in the ends of
the fingers, seem to be specially affect-
ed by handling of hair or animal wools
of any kind.
"Many good housewives do them-
selves great .injury, in. picking hair in
,ihe repair or alteration.of mabtresses,
and, wile they think they will save
money. by doing such work themselves,

"I know of some persons, men more

ddy, and the couvers:ation naturally
turned on their common pests.
"The mice have teen so bad lately,"
said the elder woina n. "thutt I keep ev-
trything locked up and all my eatables
in the bo:es."
The younger woman's eyes sparkled
with eagerness.
"My!" she said. "I wouldn't dare do
that. I wouldn't wnnt to run such a
risk. I leave crackers and cheese lying
about every night when I go to bedi.so
that when the mice become hungry
they'll find sompothing to eat and niot
gnaw things. I'm always afraid they'll
bite holes in my new tablecloths and
my nice centerpieces if 1 don't leave
the cheese right ;where they can find it
easily. I feel perfectly safe when I
know there's plenty for them to eat
right where they can get at it."
There's nothing after all like having
a clever idea like that now and then.-

as this cough appears are easily cured.

A Qualifled Decision.
"In the early days of Coeur d'Alene,"
said an old miner, "I was working
with my partners on a claim when we
were suddenly startled by pistol shots
and, looking up, discovered a man ly-
ing prostrate on an adjoining claim,
while his assailant was trying to es-
cape by legging it to the best of his
ability. Without stopping to pick up
the Injured man we gave hot chase to
the one trying to escape, whom we
finally overhauled, captured and haled
before a justice of the peace at Mis-
sion, Ida., the nearby town.
"There, as I remember it, it develop-
ed that it was an attempt at claim
jumping and that the man who had
done the shooting was the would be
jumper. The evidence was all against
him, and word came that the man who
had been shot lay all but within the
portals of death, the physician giving
It as his opinion that he could last only
a few hours longer, and thereupon the
famed justice of the peace rendered his
decision.
"'I find you guilty of murder in the
first degree,' said he severely as he
turned toward the prisoner at the bar
-'that is, provided the victim dies,'
and so (hat decision stands to this
day."
A Newspaper Wonder.
When you open up your newspaper,
it may cause you to feel some wonder
If you know that in all probability
yours are the first hands that have
ever touched its inside pages. The
reason for this is that the paper is
made from wood pulp. The woodman
cuts down a spruce tree. It is hauled
to the mill. There machinery strips off
Sthe bark, reduces the wood to pulp and
makes it into paper.
At every turn cranes, derricks,
chains, cogs, rollers, steel teeth and
other mechanical contrivances keep the
miatelia l out of human hands. The
immense rolls are wound by machines.
loaded into car and wagon by mas
chineiy, put into pressroom and on
presses by other flchiuery and finally
printed and folded without having been
directly touched by any human hand.
This is a mechanical marvel of to-
day which is no doubt duplicated in
other branches of industry. It is very
striking in the newspaper industry
which stands in the very front rank of
mechanical perfection.-St. Louis Post-
Dispatch.

Nicknames of British Regiments.
The grtenuldirit guards were nicknam-
ed "The Coallic-avers" because they
were at one time allowed to work in
plain clothes at odd jobs for private
employers. The Seventh foot were "The
Elegant Extracts" because at one time
all their officers "had been chosen from
their nalile- of "The Lltace-IdeIJuians" to
their et ,l.inel's tiring Sp-cv li- oh tle
ancient Spartanu. Lil:;, many othL-ri
r,:'irmniits. "The Gallant Fiiti.th" re-
c-*ive.l several nicknames-"Tinh- litnd
Half Hundred," from their ophthalmic
troubles in E-%pmt. and "The Dirty
Half Hundred" because in their penin-
sular fights they wiped themselves with
their black facings. The One Hun-
dredth regiment are "The Old Hun-
dred" and "The Centipedes." The
Twenty-eighth were called "The Fore
and Afts" because, standing back to
back, they repelled a front and rear
attack before Alexandria in 1801. The
Cheshire regiment has been .christened
"The Lightning Conductors" because
"in the Irish maneuvers of 1899 several
men were struck by lightning during a
night march."-London News.

The Ring-hals.
The ring-haldoes not disdain an in-
sect diet. Beetles, grasshoppers, lo-
custs and termites are all readily de-
voured, as well as ticks and bots pick-
ed from the hides of cattle. I, have
sometimes amused myself by watching
the bold yet cautious and gentle man-
ner in which one of these ravens will
approach a reclining ox and, after a
preliminary course of soothing caress-
es, accompanied by a soft "cawing"
note, insert his head into the ear and
dexterously extract the ticks, These
birds always seem to have a good un-
derstanding with the older and more
experienced oxen, who will, at a hint
from one of them, lie down and place
themselves in the most favorable posi-
tion for the extraction of their para-
sites.-Stark's Birds of South Africa.

"Why don't yew git somebody thet

countryman, picking up his carpet sack.
from the curb.
"The people that know me won't do
it," bitterly exclaimed the young man,
turning away to hide a tear.
* "Poor fellow!" sympathetically an-
swered the farmer as he took out his
wallet. "How much is it fer?"
And still they say money's hard to
get.-Kansas City Independent.

The Toothbrush Plant.
One of the most curious plants in
the world is what is called the tooth-
brush plant of Jamaica. It is a species
)f creeper and has nothing particularly
striking about its appearance. By cut-
;ing pieces of it to a suitable length
and fraying the ends the natives con-
vert it into a toothbrush, and a tooth
powder to accompany the use of the
)rush is also prepared by pulverizing
the dead stems.

Asia Minor was the chief opium mar-
Iet until the twelfth century, and from
:hen on it was gradually distributed
all over the globe. The Chinese ob-
ained the drug in the thirteenth cen-
tury.

When the Puss Gets Her Back Up.
It is not anger alone that makes cats
arch their bacls. Indeed, when two
cats are preparing to fight they do not
assume this attitude, but crouch low,
just as they do when about to spring
on their prey, the body being extended
and the hair not in the least erect.
But when, on meeting a aog suddenly,
fear is combined with anger then the
cat, standing at its full height, at once
arches its back, with an instinctive ef-
fort to appear as formidable as possi-
ble.
Darwin compares it to the similar
attitude of the lynx when attacked and
to that of birds which ruffle their feath-
ers and spread out their wings and
tail when alarmed. It is noticeable
that a cat will also arch its back when
in an affectionate frame of mind, rub-
bing itself against its master's leg. At
the same time it slightly raises its fur
and holds its tail erect. Its whole at-
titude is just the reverse of that which
it assumes when shvage.
Darwin accounts for this in the fol-
lowing words: "Certain states of mind
lead to certain habitual actions which
are of no service. Now, when a direct-
ly opposite state of mind is induced,
there is a strong and involuntary
tendency to the performance of a move.
ment of a directly opposite nature,
though it may be of no service."

a rifle ball will vanish at once from

The Returnl of the Ilutlons.
,In the civil war our soldiers faced
privation and bunker A little story in
H. Clay Trninbull's book, "War Mem-
ories of a Chap!hin," tells of the spirit
in which they sometimes did it.
While before Petersburg doing siege
work in the summer of 1864, our men
had wormy hard tack served out to
them. It was a severe trial to the men.
Breaking open the biscuits and finding
life worms in them, they would throw
the pieces in the trenches, although the
orders were to keep the trenches clean.
A brigade officer of the day, seeing
some of these straps along our front,
called out sharply to our men:
"Throw that hard tack out of the
trenches." Then, as the men promptly
gathered it up, he added, "Don't you
know that you've no business to throw
hard tack in the trenches?"
Oat from the injured soldier heart
there came the reasonable explanation,
"We've thrown it out two or there
times, sir, but it crawls back."

Pretty Lively Eating.
When one grows weary of the eternal
ices, blancmanges, charlottes and pad-
dings served to us year in and year out
for desert, it is pleasant to hear of an
innovation. A traveled American re-
marked that she once had the felicity
of sitting down to a Japanese dinner at
which were served such dainties as
melons, ices, fruits and sea frogs. There
was in addition to these sweets a cov-
ered dish, into which, at the beginning
of the dinner. a bottle of wine had been
poured

SV.'t-n the sea frogs and other dainties
had been dilm'a-e-l, the cover of this

Took Him nat ils Word.
The faculty of ter .e and forceful
stech is ordinarily an advantage, but
occasionally a man gets hoisted by his
own epigramu. A lI t.ii. young New
Yorker who was recently established
in a branch of the oil business had set
out to get the patronage of a certain
firm. The head of the concerp was re-
luctant to make a change.
"The oil we have bcen getting has
not been unsatisfactory," said lie, "and
I fail to see why we should make a.
change. Are there any extra induce-
,lments you can oiler? How do you pro-
pose to improve on the old quaTity?"
"In this way," wns the prompt an-
swer. "I propose to give the business
my personal attention. I intend to put
some of my brains into every barrel of
oil we send out."
The rejoinder pleased the old gentle-
man, and he became a customer.
A few months later the hustling
young man was obliged to make a jour-
ney, and in his absence, through some
oversight, the quality of oil was allow-
ed to deteriorate. It was quickly noted.
and a letter on file in the office records
one of the protests. It reads: "Gentle-
men-When we were induced to use
your product, we were assured that
Mr. Blank put some of his brains into
every barrel of oil. We deeply regret ,
to observe that Mr. Blank is threatened
with paresis."-W'ashington Star.

A Thrifty Scot.
A good story is told by an English
tourist who staid for a week in apart-
ments in Aberdeen, the "Granite City."
"I had heard," hea sys, "of the canny
folk of Aberdeen, and my experience,
short though it was, proved that rumor
had rightly estimated the character of
the people. The streets are granite,
the houses are granite, and the Inhall-
Itants are granite, and when they lha~
a granite baby they give it a blll ,of
granite fo? fear it should break auy
other toy.
"I had a granite landnlaly. and oleP
dny when I was going ti-h"!ii bi'rx

borrowed spade. I caught 16 trout; he
ate the lunch and broke my best rod.
When we got home. I made a present
of 14 of the fish to my granite landlady
and asked her to cook 1he other two
for my tea. She did aud charged me
threepence for the ldrilping in which
they were fried!"--Toindon Answers.

blue, with a brena-itiicee of cream cloth
and dark blue border of the same cloth'
at the hips, constitutes the dress of
the women and the girls.
The skirts protrude at the hips in a
grotesque fashion on account of the
many flannels which they wind about
the body, evidently a fad with them
as with many peasants of the Black
forest, where the custom prevails to
wear as many skirts as the spare, box
will allow, adding at least one skirt
every year. They all dress alike, and
the talk about dress therefore does not
slip into their conversations, and on
that score they are at eternal peace
with one another, for no change of
dress has occurred among them for
centuriiies and will not for years to
co fli. --D ona hce's.

showcase, said to me: 'I 'really believe
that medicine saved my life last summer

h'usiastic over its merits that I at once
made up my mind to, recommend it in the
future. Receritly a gentleman came into
my store so overcome with colic pains

minutes he left my store smilingly in-,
forming me that he felt as well as ever."

Satirists are not able to perceive-
their own absurdities. That is a well
known failing and as old as the hills.
The first great English writer to come
over here and create a furore Was
Charles Dickens, and certainly no man
ever lived who had a sharper eye for
the grotesque in personal appearance.
especially in dress. According to all
accounts, his make up was something
appalling. My old uncle saw him in
New Orleans and used to swear ho
looked more like a caricature than-a
human being. IIe curled his beard,
used corsets, sported red waistcoats
vith lavender pantaloons, carried two
vatc hcs with gold chains around his
ack nnd wnore r!, s, outside his gloves!
Just think of it!

BABY'S WAY.
Everything's in the baby's way
Whenever she wants to run and play;
It's either a chair, a table or door
Or clutter all over the playroom floor.
When she starts to run, she gets a bump,
And we have to kies her forehead plump
And start her off with a smile to play
And clear things out of the baby's way.
Everything's in the baby's way,
She wahts her do, and she wants her say;
Bite wants to do the things which are wrong,
And her will each day it grows more strong,
And we try so gently to guide her right
And ask the Father of all for light;
But to her who wants her do and say
Everything seems in the baby's way.
Everything's in the baby's way
From morning till night, so babies say,
And so they are cruss and fretful, too,
And do the things they oughtn't to do,
And their ways are not our ways at all,
And so the.y must cry and scold and fall,
But we turn a hundred times a day
And smile because it is baby's "way."

"Mr. RIedbolf is to go to the governgr-
at once."
Mr. Redbolt strode briskly across the
toofm. A moment later he was in the
private office.
Young Mr. Dewhurst, who had man'-
aged the business since the death of
his father, gave him a furtive look as
he entered and then turned hurriedly
to a bundle of correspondence by his
side and selected a letter with an air
of malicious satisfaction.
The ball was opened by Mr. Dew-
hurst unfolding a cantankerous conm
plaint from an unimportant customer.
It was the merest trifle and quite tm-
worthy of the occasion. Nevertheless
Joe Rledbolt was by no means surpris-
ed at the tone adopted. For some time
past the smallest opportunities had
been seized for fault finding, and he
'knew by instinct that the climax had
been reached.
"How do you account for this blun-
der?" asked Mr. Dewhurst suspicious-
y".
His clerk gave a simple, strtightfor-
ward explanation, which, to a reasona-
ble man, would have been sufficient.
But Mr. Dewhurst was not in a rea-
sonable humor.
"It appears to me, then, that you are
bot in any way to blame, Mr. Redbolt,"
he said cynically.
"I think not"
"You never make a mistake?"
"Not very often."
"Who is to blame, then?"
There was a moment's silence, and
the two men looked into one another's
eyes.
"You are, sir," said Redbolt respect-
fully. "I acted under your instrUc-
tions."
This appeared to give the unworthy
little tyrant his opportunity.
"You are more than half imperti-
fent," he said roughly.
"I give you my word that I don't In-
tend to be so," said Redbolt, with per-
feet good temper.
"Perhaps not, but I'm tired of It.
You forget your proper position and
have crossed my will In several ways."
1 Mr. Redbolt colored rather painfully,
and his principal continued, with a
*mile of spiteful triumph:
"You understand what I allude to?''
The clerk towed slightly.
"Then I think you had better look
about for another situation."
"Shall we calculate the month from
fast Monday?" inquired Joe Redbolt'in
a perfectly even, matter of fact voice."
"Eh-yes," said Mr. Dewhurst. "But
I won't ask you to continue your work
here."
With that he pushed across the table
a little pile of coins which had been
counted out already, clearly showing'
that he intended from the first to make
use of the opportunity.
For the first time Joe Redbolt looked
angry. It was adding insult to injury
to send him away at a moment's no-
tice, as if he had disgraced himself.
It was the more outrageous because
he was a distant relation of the Dew-
hursts by blood. The two young men
had been for a short time at school
together. They had entered the .firm
together, and Redbolt had worked his
way up by sheer ability under old Mr.
Dewhurst's eye to a responsible posi-
tion.
Naturally they knew the same people
and to some extent visited the same
houses, and it was in this way that
Dewhurst's inherent jealousy had rip-
ened into positive rancor, for that
there was a member of the fair sex at


the bottom of It is almost obvious.
The innocent cause of the trouble,
little dreaming of the mischief she was
<-reatuig, had thoroughly enjoyed the
rivalry of the two men, as every
*daughter of Eve is bound to do, and
-he had not made it quite clear which
of them was to be favored, which is
certainly a woman's privilege.
But Joe Redbolt was generally be-
lieved to be the lucky man, and Dew-
hurst had vented his unmanly spite by
i thousand annoyances In the office.
However, in love, as in war, it is the
unexpected that often happens. Joe
hedbolt proposed and was refused
point blank.
Now, most men, when they see a dan-
gerous rival put out of court, bury
their animosity and even become gen-
erous.
But this was not the case with Fred
Dewhurst. Petty annoyances develop-
ed rapidly into daily insults until the
morning, as we have seen, he had
found an excuse to cut his former
schoolfellow adrift.
Joe Redbolt picked up the pile of
coins, counted them deliberately and
put them in his pocket.
"Now, Fred Dewhurst," he said
huskily, "we are no longer master and
man, so that I can say what I think."
Dewhurst looked rather alarmed
and drew a small silver bell near to his-
side.
"Oh, don't be frightened," said Joe,
with a smile of amusement. "I'm not
going to thrash you! It wouldn't be
fair to hit a man of your size!"
Mr. Dewhurst tried to sneer, but only
looked mightily relieved.
"I want to tell you what I think of
you," said Joe.
"Go on," said Dewhurst, with a grin.
"Seeing that you've had the worst of
It all through, I suppose I mustn't
mind a few spiteful words r
"I wnnt tn clel sron that you're the


meanest' cad" I've mlet,'afd "if that'poor
girl marries you I'm sorry for her!"
"lu fact, you're so sorry," said Dew-
hurst, "that you'd even marry her
yourself. Capital! And, now you've
said enough, I'll wish you good morn-
ing."
With a mighty effort of self re-
straint, Joe pulled himself together,
and, resisting the impulse to knock him
down, swung out of the room.
lie had lost everything-the girl he
loved and the means of earning his
living. lie was alone in the world,
with no prospect but that of commenc-
ing life again in some counting house,
and- Then suddenly he remembered.
Only two nights before he had attend-
ed drill at the headquarters of his vol-
unteer corps. The men had been ask-
ed which of them wished to join the C.
I. V. for the front. lHe thought of the
glow that had burned through his
veins, how he had longed to offer him-
self and had only been prevented by
his feeling of obligation to his old
friend's business. Now he was free!
That settled it. Old England was in
need of help from men such as he. He
was as sound as a bell in wind and
limb. lie had done his turn at volun-
teering and could shoot more than a
little.
Within half an hour his name was
entered as one of those who were ready
for service at the front, and he was or-
dered to go before the doctor.
That gentleman laughed at him.
"If we get 1,400 men as fit as you
are," he said, "we shall do well!"
Having successfully passed all the
tests and been duly enrolled as one of
the City of London Imperial volunteer
corps, he felt slightly easier in his
mind.
It must be confessed that he was in
that pleasant frame of mind when a
man firmly believes that there is no-
body to grieve over him and finds a
morbid pleasure in the prospect of a
soldier's grave.
SMbst of us get these attacks of de-
spondency some time in our lives, and,
to tell the truth, it lasted a very short
time with Joe Redbolt. After a few
days of hard drill he had lost sight of
tihe possibility of getting killed and
was looking forward to making things
as unpleasant as possible for the ene-
my.
At last the final moment came. He
had attended the services at St. Paul's
and sung the national anthem until he
Swas hoarse. He had been slapped on
the back by hundreds of warm hearted
but heavy handed citizens. He had
even fought his way successfully
through a mob of enthusiastic patriots
all the way from Bunhill row to Nine
Elms, where he was one of the first to
arrive.
There stood the rain waiting to take
them to Southampton. There, too,
stood the long suffering band, and
every minute groups of breathless, ex-
cited men In khaki, who had also
fought their way through the crowd,
rushed on to the platform.
Of course It was all over. There was
nothing to be done but get into the
train and say goodby to old Londond
for months-perhaps forever. Once
more a gloomy sense of loneliness came
upon him. Everybody else had a chum
or a relative to Aee him off. And then-
an angel came from heaven? Not
quite. But an earthly angel appeared
in the shape of a sligl t form in a long,
black cloak, who wasfpushing her way
feverishly through thle crowd, eagerly
scanning the faces of all the "gentle-
men in khaki."
Then their eyes met, and in a minute
he was clasping in his arms the girl
who had refused him a month before
and In whose presence he had always
been so shy that he had never yet
dared to press her hand.
How had it happened? There seemed
no need, and certainly no time, for ex-
planations. Why had he accepted her
foolish "no" when she never meant
him to? She always thought he would
speak to her again: Why had he been
so awkward and brusque In the way
he had asked her? He had given her
no chance to say "yes." And it was
only last night she had learned what
had happened-from Dewhurst's own
"lips-and she had cried all night at the
mischief she had done, and wbold he
forgive her? And did he still care for
her a little bit?
"Take your seats, there!" roared an
officer.
It was not the time for mock mod-
esty. With her arms around his neck
and tear stained cheeks pressed to his,
she promised to wait for him.
"God bless youI" he whispered.
"And bring you back to me," she an.
swered.
And then, with cheers and whistles
and the band playing "God .Save the


Queen" and men shouting and laugh-
ing and crying, the train moved-Fut,
and the City's Own was en route for
the front.--Answers.

Black Coats.
An English clergyman, rather pom-
pous of manner, according to Spare
Moments, was fond of chatting with a
witty chimney sweep.
Once, when the minister returned
from his summer holidays, he happen-
ed to meet his youthful acquaintance,
who seemed to have been at work.
"Where have you been?" asked the
clergyman.
"Sweeping the chimneys at the vic-
arage," was the boy's answer.
"How many chimneys are there, and
how much do you get for each??" was
the-next question.
The sweep said there were 20 chim-
neys and that he was paid a shilling
apiece.
The clergyman, after thinking a mo-
ment, looked at the sweep in apparent
astonishment. "You have earned a
great deal of money in a little time,"
he remarked solemnly, wondering,
probably, what the sooty fellow would
reply.
"Yes," said the sweep, throwing his
bag over his shoulder as he started
away. "We who wear black coats
get oulr muney very eaf'ly!"


Teaching a Horse Tricks.
You can, with patience, teach your
horse politeness-to bow to an audi-
ence, to say "No" with more or less
decision, to kiss you or even laugh.
The animal may be taught to bow by
tapping him on the back with a whip.
He bends his head in trying to avoid
the annoyance. The trainer ceases the
tapping, caresses him, then resumes
It till he repeats the bow. He Is again
caressed and presented with a carrot
or something of which he Is.particular-
ly fond. At last it comes about that
he "bows" upon any movement of the
whip toward his back.
To teach a horse to say "No" a pin
is fastened to the butt of the whip. A
slight scratch is given to the horse's
withers, about where the collar would
be. At this he shakes his head and
soon learns to shake it whenever he
sees the butt of the whip coming near
his withers.
The trainer teaches the animal "to
kiss" by feeding him with apples from
his mouth, gradually lessening the size
of the apples till the horse does the
trick without any, or he puts salt, of
which horses are very fond, on his
cheek, and the animal naturally licks
it off.
He Is taught to laugh by gently forc-
ing the butt of the whip in at the side
of his mouth, then prying his mouth
open with it. Caresses and carrots fol-
low, till at last the slightest motion of
the butt toward his mouth makes him
open it. lie does not really laugh; he
grins.-Good Words.
A Chicago Street Car Episode.
Passengers on an east bound Archer
avenue car were thrown Into a panic
one night by the prospect of a holdup.

cause of the disturbance was learned
Car 1811 had been about to cross the

"Stop the car!" roared the excitable

his $5 disappearing down the track
"IHe's got m. money!"
The would be "holdup" man had,
reached the front door when the car
flashed past the conductor, wh'o was
waiting for the rear platform. The
passenger tried to jump from the car.
but found it impossible because of the

he made a mad dash for the rear door.

The Nature of Ether.
If apy reader is disposed to object to
the assumption of a medium behaving
in such very different ways with re-
gard to motions of different speeds, it
may assist in convincing him that the
objection is not a valid one to direct
his attention to the similar behavior
of such a familiar substance as pitch.
In moderately cold weather this ma-
terial has all the appearance of a solid
and will resist a blow or momentary
heavy pressure. If, however, a densern
body than the pitch. such as a bullet.
for example. be laid upon its surface.
it will gradually sink until It rests up
on whatever is supporting the pitch
if, on the other hand. the pitch is plac-
ed upon a less dense body, such as
cork, the latter will float up through 11
in the course of time. The pitch, there
fore, exposes great resistance to rapit
motion, but the smallest pressure
causes it to give way if sufficient time

show a great deal, what on earth do
you suppose she asked me? Why. she
*wanted to know if I couldn't dr'll tbi
cavity larger and make the filling loolc
not like a mere gold edge, but like the
letter 'J.' She told me she was going
to marry a man named John. and she
thought it would be lovely to have a
gold 'J' in her tooth.
"Of course I couldn't do that either.
It would not be according to profes-
sional ethics. It would be malpractice.
But that woman offered me the price
of a dozen gold fillings if I'd only make
the filling in her tooth look like a 'J.'"
-Washington Post.
A Floral Miracle.
"The most magnificent floral effect I
ever saw In my life," said Robert N.
Wilson of the Morgan line, "was in
Texas. They have a flower there call-
ed the rainflower, the botanical name
of which is the cooperia. It usually
blooms three or four days after a rain.
I was through the country to look after
some land for a friend, and the thing
that struck me In that particular lo-
cality was the utter barrenness of the
whole landscape. There was a low
piece of land of ten acres or more that
was covered with low, black vines that
were decidedly uninviting. Four hours
later, after a heavy thunder shower, I
passed this piece of land, and it was
absolutely covered with what seemed
to be the prettiest flowers I had ever
seen. It was one enormous bouquet,
and the fragrance from it was almost
intoxicating.
"I could scarcely believe the evidence
of my own eyes, but there it was. what
seemed to be an unsightly waste trans-
formed as if by magic into a bower of
bloom.
"I made inquiry of the natives and
learned that once in a long time the
rainflower bloomed in a few hours aft-
er a rain, though ordinarily the blos-
soms did not appear for three or four
days and then usually came In the
night."-New York Commercial Adver-
tiser.
She Didn't Piay.
Not all car conductors are merely
hardened ringers in of fares. A poor
woman got on a Twenty-third street
crosstown car at Fourth avenue, and
as it was well under way and she was
about to hand her fare to the conductor
she asked him if he transferred to
Sixth avenue. On being told no, she
drew back her 5 cents and asked to be
let off.
"I've a long ways to go on tFi'lh
avenue." she said, "'n:ad I'd better walk
to there .,i1 then ride."
The car'" then had reached M:adisou
avenue.
"Wait till we get across the street,"
answered the conductor. She waited,
and instead of stopping there he let the
car go on, past the transfer station
and across Broadway to Sixth avenue.
There he pulled the bell and looked at
her.
"Thank you," she said gratefully.
He had carried her within a block of
where she wanted to go and had taken
no fare.-New York Telegram.
More Than He Conhl Stand.
"What's this?" demanded the police,
hurrying to the scene. "A hold up?"
A pale, scholarly looking mau in spec-
tacles was standing over a burly ruf-
fian and shaking his slender fist at the
prostrate form
"I presume that is what you would
term it," he replied. "This fellow stop-
ped me just now and ordered me to
hold up my hands. I complied, and
he began to search my pockets. '1 will
put a bullet through you,' he said, 'If
you take them down all during the
time I am'- And then I knocked him
down. 'All during' is an abominable
perversion of' correct English that no
man can utter in my presence unre-
buked."
The unlucky footpad had tackled a
professor of rhetoric. Chicago Trib-
une.


And He Knew.
"Algernon is very interesting," said
the stockbroker's daughter.
"What does he talk about?" inquired
her father.
"Why, he's ever so well posted in
Shakespearean quotations."
"Young woman," said the financier
sternly, "don't you let him deceive you.
Don't you let him make sport of your
ignorance. There ain't no such stock
on the market."-London Standard.
The Difference.
Willie-Pa, what's tile difference be-
tween "insurance" and "assurance?"
Pa-Well, the latter is what tle
agent has, and the former is what he
tries to sell you.-Philadelphia Press.
