The winter scarce Vis over,
Some snowflakes tarried yet,
When in a garden corner
A little root I set.
The friend who sent it promised
That it should surely bring
To me some fragrant treasures
Before the flight of spring.
And patiently I waited,
As April came and went,
And May taught all the song-birds
A song of sweet content.
But bonny spring departed,
And June the roses brought,
And, save two tender leaves,
The rootlet gave me naught.
And so my memory lost it,
And summer also passed,
When in the garden corner
One day I fonnd at last
A very pearl of lilies-
A snow-white flower gem-
With conscious beauty trembling
Uuon a graceful stem.
Oh, weary hearts, take courage,
With faith and patience wait;
Though sown to blossom early,
Full many joys bloom late.
The blessings due in spring-time
May linger on the way,
And, like my pearl of lilies,
Make sweet an autumn day. '
They loved each other well, they
And so to wed they wildly hoped;
Wherefore it wasn't long before
They laughed at locksmiths and
Her pa forgave, as papas do;
Her mamma, too, forgave and
His ma and pa forgave them, too,
And brothers, sisters-all the rest.
And only two could not forgive;
They've not forgiven to this day,
And won't as long as e'er they live--
They can't forgive themselves, they
-Annette Lyons in London Figaro.
Two birds that once sang sweetly
Within a sylvac shade
Gave fair hopes to a lover
And gladness to a maid!
They strolled beneath the branches
And sat beneath the boughs,
ALdf thrilled by love songs o'er them,
Exchanged undying vows.
The songs that charmed the lovers
Ring through the wood no more;
the sylvan shade is silent
Where joy was loud before;
The birds are gobte! The lovers
Love not! Last night he sat
And ate one for his supper!
The other's on her hat.-

"It's fib use." said Mrs. Varney
despairingly, as she laid aside her
work. -"I cannot sew any longer t(-
"Are you worse, mamaa" asked
Mrs. Varney's hand involuntarily
sought her side, while a sharp slasll
contracted her features.
"It's only a touch of that old
pain," she said feebly. "I am better
now. But, ol, I did so wantto fin-
ith this work tonight, There ate so
many things that we need, and to-
morrow is Memorial day, and I want-
ol a few flowers to put on your fath-

Ida, old beyond her years, wise
with the kno\vlege that comes early
to the children of poverty, turned
away to hide the tears that came to
her eyes, and busied herself with pre-
pdrati'ons for supper.
She hesitated over the small piece
or bread, the scanty allowance of
"If I f'6e this tea there will be
none for breakfast, and there is not
bread enough for two meals," she
thought; bii a glance at her nmoth-
er's white face' decided her, and with
a cheerful smile she set forth the last
of their scanty sn'ppty of food, and
bade her mother eat.
"I haven't much appetite, said
Mrs. Varney, drawing h'er chair :6
"You have been working too haid,
mamma. The doctor said yvtu must
not sew until your side got well.
You need something nice to eat, too.
How I wish I could help you."
"You do help me, dear," returned
the mother. "It you did not take all
the care of the housework from my
nind, I could not get anything
"Still that 'is no real help," per-
sisted.Ida. "I am trIelve years old
lowV aid ought. tol bSl ing ,e
hlug to help earn a living."
But what could shi do? Many
times during the past year-ever
since her father's death-Ida had re-
volved this thought in her mind.
She was still thinking of it when
she kissed her patient, pale-faced
another and then started out to do
ter marketing. Her marketing-
and there were only fwo pennies left
in tie little old pursel But Mrs. Var-
iey did not know this.
Mr. Varney had been a soldier in
he confederate army, and after the
var closed had supported an invalid
mother and sister until death had
called them to a world where pain is
unknown. Late in life he had mar.
ied, but his health wts broken and
when at last he died, after a linger-
ng illness, his widow and little
laughter were left penniless. Mrs.
Varney was a well-educated woman
and had tried to find some remnuera-
ive employment which would be
easier than sewing, but without suc-
:ess. She was recovering from a se-
vere illness which had exhausted all
The dreary tenement house in the
suburbss of the big city had never
looked quite so desolate to Ida as it
lid on that May evening when she
closedd the door after her and hurried
iway. How bare and lonely the lit-
Ile room looked! How Ihopelessly pa-
Lhetic was the mother's tired face!
It was a mild, beautiful spring
evening. A few fleecy clouds floated
overhead, and the gardens were gay
with early flowers.
Ida hastened onr, the half-formed
resolve already in her mind assuming
definite shape as she walked. She
would go to Mrs. Hodgdon, a lady
for whom Mrs. Varney did fine needle-
work, and state her perplexities.
Mrs Hodgdon had been very kind to
them, and no doubt when she heard
of their present difficulties she would
advance some money on the unfin-
ished work yet in Mrg. Varney's
Mrs. Hodgdon was not at home.
The servant said that she had gone
into the country t' spbnd a' few
weeks with: some relatives. This
was a contingency for which Ida had
not been prepared', and the disap-
pointment made her sick at heart.
her eyes were blinded with tears as
she turned away from the door.

'Tlius thinking, ida walked aimll
lesly on to the business part of tli
city. The streets were gay with
people, a prouperouns, happy, well-fed
throng that seemed to have uno

heel that disconsolate, pi orly-clad
little figure, atnd Ida wandered on,
her heart filled with bitter thoughts.
Why was it that they must suffer

muit her mother to grow thin and
pale for want of nonrishing food,
when on all sides were people who
had more of this world's goods than
they could ever use?

streamed down her cheeks.
"Oh, it is not right," she moaned.
But just then the words of an old
hymn that she had heard her mother
sing flashed through her mind.
"Goa moves in a mysterious way,
His wonders to perform;
He plants his footsteps on the sea
And rides upon the storm'."
"Oh, it is all right." she thought,
with simple faith; "of course it is, or
it would not be so, I will ask the
Lord to take care of us. and' I know
he will." Then clasping her thin,
white hands together, she raised her
eyes reverently and whispered:
"H46avenly Fatheri don't let mam-
tna suffer. Take care of 6s for
And then Ida-wee girl-woman-
turned ho6iiewdrd' feeling wonderfi'lly
6"mforted'; One long braid of silky
hadir had escaped from her hat and
lay like a bar of light across her
breast. Some stAinigle seemed to be
going on in her, mind. For an in-
stantt les wavere, thei t-e Tigl of
a firm resolve shone in her eyes
1I'11 do it," she said decisively. "It
will at least buy something for to-
morrow," and turning shortly around
she hurried off into another street.
A few moments later she had en-
tered a large, brilliantly lighted shop.
In faltering accents she made known
her request and was referred to the
proprietor, a pompous-looking man
who gazed sharply at her through
"Want to sell your hair, eh?" he
"It seems to be thick,- but is not a
Ida's face turned crimson. More
than one pair of curious eyes were
turned in her direction. People were
comiing and going, some were idly
chatting together in group.; others
were being waited upon at the count-
ers; but it seemed to Ida that they
were all gazing at her in silent de-
rision. Slhe stood with downcast
eyes and a rapidly beating heart,
while the employer and his assistant
conferred together in low tones.
"Sit down," said the saleswoman
coming toward Ida and motioning
her to a chair, Not unkindly she
removed the shabby hat, and loosen-
ing the girl's hair, brushed it out in
shining waves. It was pretty hair,
of a peculiar, pale tint.
"It is fine and thick," said the wo-
man, in a low tone.
"So I see," rejoined the man with
the gold-rimmed glasses. "bMake it
a V then-no more," and turning he
walked away with the air of a man
who has dismissed an unimpoitant
"Did youi understand? asked the
saleswoman. "He offers you five
dollars. Will that do?"
Five dollars! That seemed an im-
mense sum to Ida. She looked up
eagerly, but before she doffid speak,
the woman was gently crowded aside
and a tall, well-d'essed man with a
gray beard stood before her.
"Do you wish to 'sell your hair,
little gitl?" he asked,, kindly.
"Yes, sir," faltered Ida, wonder-
"I will buiy it," he said gently and
dropped a' crisp five dollar bill into
Ida's lap. Then as the surprised
girl looked uncertainly from him to
the saleswoman, the stranger lifted
neit morning he m'arvelel still more
at the size and weight of thle hanmper
that was sent up to Mrs. Variney's
room. And Mrs. Variley mlarveled
imost of all at being gruffly informed
by the landlord that her next quar-
tea's renli as already paid-lhad
been paid in advance; but the bewil-
dered woman's attention was attract-
ed to Ida, who was uttering cries ol
delight over the hamper which she
And wlql I Mrs. Varney saw what
this woneioful hamper contained she
forgot all about the rent-and no
wonder for there was a chicken and
cake and good things innumerable,
and down tu the bottom were shoes
and a dress for Ida. And tucked
away in one corner was a box which
when opened disclosed clusters of
fragrant roses and great velvety pan-
Ida went into ecstacies over the
flowers, and her mother, looking
dreamily at them, recalled the happy
days of her girlhood, when flowers,
books and music had made life a con-
tinual pleasure. The dreams of the
past had been rudely shattered, the?
friends of her youth were dead or had
grown indifferent; but God had pro-
vided help for her in the time of need.
At length Mrs. Varney put out her
hand ana touched the flowers ten-
"Bring some water to put them in,
Ida," she said. "We will keep a
cluster of the roses and a few of the
pansies; the others yon must put on
your lathes's grave today."
But when she removed them from
the-bo a fresh siaprise awaited her,
for there was a sealed envelope ad-
dressed to herself, which had been
hidden under the ffovoeis.
Wonderingly she Opened it and
surveyed the contents--twentyf4ve
dollars in crisp new bills!
They were folded in a sheet of pa-
per on which was written only the
"From one who wore the blue, to
the widow of onh Who wore the
There was no other clue to tbe
sender, but Id'a readily identi'fied him
with her behefactor of the previous"
"It was the stranger that seht the
hamper, mamma--the man that
bought my hair!" she cried. "Oh',
one long strand of the sinning hair
and gently severed it from her heal.
His touch lingered caressingly upon
it. For the moment his mind hadl
gone back to bygone days; and to
his gentle daughter, whose hair, so
like Ida's had long baen hidden froiff
sight under the coffin-lid.
"That will do, child," he sail at
last. "Keep the rest bf your hair,
but remember that it is not your to
sell any more."
"Oh, thank you sir," she gasped.
He smiled sadly.
"Tell me something of yourself;
dear. Hive you no tpaents."
"1 have a dear mother, sir. Father
died nearly a year ago. He was a
soldier in the confederate anmy, aind
never was real strong after the war
closed. Manmmia has been ill and we,
didn't have anything in the house for
tomorrow, and that is why I wanted
to sell my hair."
The shopwoman re-arranged Ida'.s
hair and wrapped up the money in a
piece of papar, giving utterance the
while to many voluble thanks to the
little girl's benefactor. Again ex-
pressing her gratitude, Ida hurried
How happy she 'wasl What a nice
breakfast she planned! She could
hardly afford time to make her pur-
chases, so eager was she to tell her
mother of theio good fortune, and
when at last, with her arms full of
bundles she was once more speeding
homeward, it is doubtful if in all
that big city there could have been
found a happier little maid than Ida
"How surprised-how surprised dear
mamma will be," she thought over:
and over again. And she was iight.
But Mrs. Varnes was not tfhe only
one to be surprised that evening; for
while Ida was telling her story the
crusty old landlord of the tenement
house wherein they lived was being
interviewed by the stranger whn hail,
unseen by her, followed her honie.

but the prison auth'orilles were so
much Impressedl by the woman's ob-
vious earnestness that a search was at
once made for him.
After some delay, he wns traced and

rc-.:arsied to himu. O\'rcome with as-
tonishment, he then and there con-
tessed that he had committed the
crime. Curiously enough, the woman'
had only met the murderer once and
believed him to be on the very best of
terms with her husband.
Almost as remarkable was the case
of a woman named Drew, Who dream-
ed one night that her husband, a re-
tl'ed sailor, had been murdered by a
peddler at a iOrinesen"d tavern, where
the said husband was In the halbit of

her on rising in the morning was thai
her spouse had been assassinated at
the very tavern she had seen in her ex-

out that her dream had dome true.
She, calmed down somewhat after i
few hours and then handed the police
officials an exact description of the
peddler of the vision, giving a minute
account of his dress, which Included a
blue coat of a very peculiar pattern.
Marvelous as the, fact may appear, a
man wearing such a coat and follow-
ing the occupation of a peddler was
discovered two days later at an Inn
some six miles from Gravesend, and,
on being taxed with the crime, he at
once admitted that he was guilty and
that robbery had been the motive of
the outrage. He was hanged soon aft-

desired; the weather was as perfect as
a June night could be expected to be,
and if there were any there who felt
themselves compromised because of the
associationsthat are naturally the re-
sult of the promiscuous gathering at a
public dance, their actions and counte-
nances did not betray it. The band has
reason to feel proud of its achievement,
and will doubtless feel encouraged to

A Popular Misconception of Van-
dyke's Clever painting .
If the number of houses in which
there hang reproductions of a certain
drawing of a little child's head after
Vandyke could be enumerated, it
would cause astonishment. There Is
nothing surprising in the popularity
of the head. But whatever genius
named it "Baby Stuart" is responsible
for many ludicrous misapprehensions.
There are women who believe that this
head was painted by Gilbert Stuart.
'here 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 hmn 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 Canevarl'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
168t, and, according to eminent au- (
thority, he gave evidence of possessing t
all the vices of his race without any
of its virtues. His reign was short
and infamous. He was in exile at St.
Germain when he died in 1701. Such c

He wanted to impress upon the lady
that Washington life had been too
much for him and did so by drawing
a capital full length picture of himself
as he appeared walking along the ave-

rendered it irresistible was the fact
that the back of his head was where
his face ought to be-in other words,
Washington had turned his head.

editor of Harper's Weekly, a position
which he had held for many years. In
the course of his philippic Mr. Conkling
took occasion to refer to The Weekly,

to him, he described it simply as "the

Speaking of big salaries, the biggest

There is more catarrh in this section of
t he country than all other diseases put
together, and until the last few years was
supposed to be incurable. For a great
many years doctors pronounced it a local
disease, and prescribed local remedies,
and by constantly failing to cure with
local treatment, pronounced it incurable.
Science has proven catarrh to le, a con-
stitutional disease, "and therefore re-
quiires constitutional treatment. Hall's
Catarrh Cure, manufactured by F. J.
Cheney& Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the only
constitutional cure on the market. It is
taken internally in doses from ten drops
to a teaspoonful. It acts directly on the

ca'seit fails to cure. Send for circulars

Tragic stories are told of men who
have lost their lives in the search for
precious metals which may lie hidden
or uncovered, says Harriet Monroe in
The Atlantic. The great primeval
flood cut Its broad V through all the
strata of rock, with all their veins of
metallic ore, down to the earliest
shapeless mass, leaving in its wake the
terraced temples and towers which
seem to have been planned by some
architect of divinest genius to guard
their inaccessible treasures till the end
of time. And the river, rising far to
the north among mountains rich-in
mineral, has been washing for ages
the sands afay and depositing thus
gold and silver and lead in the still
crevices of the inaccessible chasm.
Here the earth laughs at her human
master and bids him find her wealth
If be dare and bear It away if he can.
A young Californian who accepted the
challenge and set forth upon the turgid
water to sift its sands for gold never
emerged with his hapless men to tell
the story of his search. Only near the
brink of the cleft are a few miners
burrowing for copper and sending their
ore up to the rim on the backs of hardy
burros, as who should prick the moun-
tain with a pin or measure the ocean
with a cup.

PEACHES AND BLUBBER.
A Story of Arthur Stringer and an
Canad ans are very touchy on the
subject of climate, as Rudyard Kipling
discov-qjed when he somewhat thought-
lessly dubbed the Iominion "Our Lady
of the Snows." When Arthur Stringer.
the young Canadian poet and author,
first went to Oxford, he carried with
him letters from Professor Goldwin
Smith of Toronto to Professor York
Powell. the distinguished historian of
The old Oxford don, like one or two
other Englishmen, had very vague
ideas about Canada and somewhat sur-
prised the young stranger by inquiring
if he got along nicely on English roast
mutton after living so long on frozen
seal met. The young poet gravely
protested that he perhaps missed his
whale blubber a little, ibut the next day
cabled home, and in less than a week
the finest basket of autumn peaches
ever grown in Ontario, carefully pack-
ed in sawdust, was on its way to Ox-
ford. A short time afterward the
young author was again dining with
the regius professor at Oxford. and
that gentleman produced at the me al
a fruit dish loaded with tremendous
"Most extraordinary," said the old
professor, "but these peaches Ivere
sent to me today, aapd I'm blessed if I
know who sent them. From the south
of France, I suspect, so I saved a few
of them for you, Stringer. They will
be such a novelty, you know."
The Canadian very quietly took a
steamship company's bill of lading
from his pocket and handed it to the
professor. The professor gazed at the
bill. then at the fruit, then at the poet.
"I had sone whale blubber, too. pro-
fessor." said that young man, "but I
simply had to eat that. These other
tll'; Ts were grown on my uncle's farm
in Kent county. Ont.. you know. He
has 200 bushels of them o''ery year,
and he sent nme over l,:i -;k.'t of little
ones along with the whale blubber."-'

SALARIES OF OUR PLAYERS.
The Pay of Actors Varies From 110
to as Mnuchl as $5P)0 Per Week.
Franklin Fyles. writing of "The The-
ater and Is People" in The Ladies'
Home Journal. touches interestingly
upon the earnings of actors and cor-
rects the oft repeated reports of the
enormous earnings of players. "Sala-
ries vary with circumstances," he says.
"The Imanager may find at $25 a week
a player whose iuo:lierate talent exact-
ly fit' v palit of considerable import
tance. He miay have to pay $150 if the
role is singular and fit candidates
scarce. If he wants celebrity in addi-
tion to ability, le may be willing to
ma ea the salary $300 a week. In that
caS' lie takes into account the public
value of the name and miiakes a feature
of it in his advertisements.
"Not more than ten actors in Amer-
ica, aside from the stalS, receive as
much as $230 a week, and not more
than five actresses are paid this
amount. In fact, $150 a week is excep-
tional, and $100 will engage an excel-
lent hero or heroine, a line comedian
or a delineator of eccentric character.
The wages run down to $75 for a sou-
brette. Ingenue or old man, to $50 for
an old woman, juvenile man or juvenile
woman. and so along to utility and
chorus men and women at $12 or $18 a
week. Those are the wages of thor-
oughly competent actors in companies
of good grade."
STREET PARADE FLOATS.
Many Difficult Problems to Be Met Ta
"The making of decorative street
floats is a ditlicult trade," said a New
Orleans scenic artist who has had
plenty of experience in the line he men-
tiloed. "There are so many things
to be considered. For instance, a float
must look well both near and far. It
must be able to stand a dash of rain.
It must be light enough to go over any
kind of street and solid enough to re-
sist a gust of wind, and, most impor-
tant of all. it must be so constructed
that it will appear all right to folks in
"Some years ago a young designer
from the north made several small
models for tableau cars *hat charmed'
everybody who looked at them. They
were certainly very beautiful and nov,
el, but when I was called in as an ex-
pert I said at once that they wouldn't
do. They were designed to be viewed
from the banquette only, and from a
second story window every particle of
effect would have been lost. More-
over, a lot of hidden mechanism was
certain to be discovered at any eleva-
tion above 15 feet.
"The young artist frankly admitted
I was right and abandoned the job.
Hie said it Involved entirely too many
optical problems to suit him. When 1

culate on a visual sweep of 30 de-
grees. That goes from the level of

Man and His Smoke.
Every little while you read that a
man 96 yenrs old and still hale and
hearty has :smoked all his life, but it
Is nevertheless a fact that-Smoking is
very injurious. Men should be ashamed
that they are unable to quit the habit.
This is not written by a man who has
no desire to smoke, but by a man who
smokes a great deal, has tried several
times to quit and couldn't do it.
When you find a boy who is pale and
sick from his first smoke, remember
that his father and his grandfather
are to blame. It will take thousandA
of years to reform the world if we be
gin now. A boy is as certain to look
for a pipe as lie is to look for a sweet-
heart. His father was guilty of both
offenses before him.-Atchison Globe.

Finally he said, 'Speak low and I can

Jimmy and the Baby.
Jimmy's mother kept cows anid sold
milk. Jimmy himself had nothing to
do with the cows, though sometimes
he used to carry the milk pail to his
mother's customers. The customers
all liked Jimmy, with his round, frec-
kled face and bashful grin- and they
used to ask him how business was, for,
although Jimmy was only 13 years old,
he had a business. Ie made coffins--
baby coffins-and sold them to the un-
with all the edges carefully joined.
Jimmy received 50 cents for each one.
One day Jimthmy stopped at the house
of one of his mother's customers to
leave some milk. A little boy met him
at the door.
"We've got a new baby!" said the
little boy. "Would you like to see it"
Jimmy nodded. The little boy's aunt
laughingly led Jimmy to the cradle
where the new baby was. Jimmy
gazed at the infant for some time,
speechless with admiration or some
asked the aunt.
"1 guess I'll have to make a nice lit-
tle coffin when I go home," he said.-

stated reason t'or it was not very sat-
isfying. lie went up to San Francisco
to study law.' Bung Town bet on him
because he was such a marvelous pis-
At bottom no doubt the Bungles be-
lieved in Lem because they liked him
and wanted to he.ar good things of
lmtu, a substantial basis of a prophecy,
since they might give him business up-
on his return if they wanted to. Again,
Lem was shrewd. Indeed, .he was
tricky, "slick," tile town said, laughing
the while, for while slickness was a
part intolerable to western prejudice
it was acceptable when the trickster
was straightforward alout it. A mer-
ry thief might be a "good fellow;" his
surly "pal" couMk go hang.
Lem had great luck. When he came
back, dressed in city clothes, he got a
case almost before he got down from
"Sumpin's up," said the driver as
they turned into the main street.
He pointed with his whip to an ex-
cited group of Bungles standing in
tront of the store.
"Maybe it's a shooting, and I'll just
call it murder and get the chance to de-
fend it," said Lem, throwing one leg
off over the end of the rear, ready to'
"Hello, Lem!" "Say, there's Lem
Hooley!" "Lem Hooley, s'help me'
Thus they greeted him, and he drop-
ped among them, both hands out, to be
shaken and to shake each hand. He
"But what's up?" he asked.
The crowd turned, with a laugh, to
Cooley, the sheriff, who had a piece of
paper in his hand.
"Cooley's got a warrant to serve,
and he's a-skeered to serve it."
"Skeered! Well, I guess not, not if
there were 50 greasers 'stead of 10. I'll
serve it all right."
"Well, why don't you serve it, then?"
asked Lem merrily.
"Because I can't get a man with the
gizzard to swear in as deputy to help
"What do you want help for?"
"There's ten of them over there." He
pnlntedl to a greaser shanty across the
street. "Will you go along?"
"What's been done, anyhow?"
"Greaser Ike shot Yellow Mike, you
remember, who used to tend bar in the
dance hall, and the Mexicans in the
county is bound to see him out of the
"I don't see much in that," said Lem.
"Why don't you go ahead and arrest
"Will you go along as deputy? It
means shooting, and a lot of it, against
knives, too, and you'll want all the
good eye you used to have."
"No, I won't go along as deputy to
you, but I'll tell you what I'll do. If
the crowd won't string the prisoner up
when I take him, I'll go over alone."
"All right. It's a go," they answered.
"Better take my- gun," said Cooley,
offering his six shooter.
"I'm all right," said Lem, tapping
There were several offers of com-
pany, willing ones, but the young law-
yer rejected them all.
He walked rapidly across the street,
leaving the crowd happy and silent, in-
terested and full of admiration. With-
out drawing his gun Lem went
straight up to the door, shoved it open
and stepped in out of sight, and not a
shot was heard nor an oath nor a fall.
It was all as silent as Derore. mne
-rowd at the store wondered, waited
aw-hle and wondered out loud. Ought
ihey not to go over and see what was
Ip? Maybe a knife fixed him before
,e could draw. The Bungles discussed
.t carefully, but they believed in Lem,
:nid they decided again and again that
licy'd better "leave him be." And
It was a wise decision. In two min-
!cs Lem came out with Ike. The oth-
r Mexicans appeared at the door of
hthir shanty and quietly watched Lem

"own. You despise greasers, but not

Ilght enough, but the contempt for
hem is only as pistol shots and as cit-
w:-ns. It is no crime to kill one.
Now. Lemn knew this sentiment, and
vhOcn the trial came off, with all the
county present and about one-tenth of*
lie white population in the jury box,
he young lawyer, who appeared to de-
.'end reaser Ike, applied it-deftly to
:lie case. ie showed that Yellow Mike
was a greaser and a "no good" greaser,
so that to shoot him was not murder.
Of course, he admitted, it was not the
custom to lose the chance to get rid
of two greasers by hanging the one
who survived a fight to the finish. But
that custom was rot only unjust-it
was shortsighted. If a white man had
a right to shoot a Mexican, a Mexican
ought to have the same privilege, or
the principles on which this great re-
public was founded were naught, and
if he did not move off, but after his
words to the girl his arm slowly fell.
There was silence for a minute, and
then the boss of the gang said:
"Cuss me, but you've got nervel Sit
-down with the gal and fill up."
It was accounted a strange thing
with the "rushers" to see a little girl
among that band of "bad! 'uns," each
taking turn oand turn about to carry
her on his back, and both guardian

their way over the hills, one carrying
the packs and the other the girl. Fifty
miles away. on the b:nksr of r-awling

hours later were prospecting for gohl.
They found sioi cient to encourage
them to persevere, but not In quanti-

the men left the girl asleep and moved
farther down the creek.

when in trying to clamber up a banK
she caught at and uprooted a bush.
With the dirt and stones a nugget of
gold rolled down into the stream and
lay there like a spot of sunshine. An
hour later Scott threw down his pick
"Jim, It's the richest spot on the face
of the globe. There'll be a rush-here,
of course, but we'll have our claims
entered first. I'll start for Woona
Walla within half an hour.
In 30 minutes he was on his way
over the hills, and in three days he
was back again. It would have been
no use to try to hide the new find. IHe
had to state its location in order to file
his claim, and the very official who
made good his papers was at his heels
as he made his way back to camp.

after picking up the girl and kissing
her. "Here It is-the 'Ethel claim.'

After supper that night the child
climbed upon Scott's knee, and he
stroked her hair until she fell asleep.
For a long time after he had gently
laid her down there was silence be-
tween the two men. He was the first
to break it by saying:
"Jim, the girl is to go back to Syd-
ney and be brought up a lady."
"Yes," rYeplird Jim.

they found his dead body half a mile

THE HOTEL BELLBOY.
He Plans to Have One Day of Fun
"Some day when I have accumulated
a stake," said one of the bright bell-
boys at the Blossom House the other
day, "I am going to have some fun."
"What are you going to do?" a by-
"I am simply going to some big hotel
In Chicago or St. Louis and live for a
day," and the boy paused to let the
remark soak in.
"And that's your idea of a good
time, Is it?" queried the curious lis-
"Hold on! I am not through yet. I
am going to a big hotel with three big
grips, and I am going to make the bell-
boy carry all of them up to the room
for me. I won't carry even.the small-
est one. Then as soon as I am in my
room I am going to have some Ice wa-
ter. I will not ring for Ice water, but
for a bellboy, and after he has climbed
to the fifth floor-bellboys are not per-
mitted to use the elevator, you know,
and I shall not take a room lower than
the fifth floor-when he has climbed
up there I will tell him I want some
"I will drink all the ice water I can
and pour the rest in a cuspidor. Then
I will ring for more ece water. After
that I shall order a cocktail sErved in
ny room. I don't drink, but there
must be variety in my scheme. Then
I will decide to take a Turkish bath
and will call a boy to carry my grip
down to the bathroom. When I re-
turn, I will ring for more ice water.
"I will insist on having the same
bellboy serve me all the time, and I'll
keep him chasing around until he will
curse me at every step. Then when I
get ready to leave and he is happy to
think he shall lever see my cursed
face again I will give him a dollar.
You know I couldn't think of putting
a boy to all that trouble without re-
warding him, because I have been
through the mill myself. What I have
just described happens to a bellboy
Every day of his life-all except get-
ting the dollar when it is over."
TIE SENSE OF TASTE.
IT SHOULD BE THE BEST GUIDE TO
THE FOOD WE NEED.
If Not Perverted, It Will Select Those
Substances For Which the Body Is
Suffering-We Use Entirely Too
The function of the taste doubtless
sustains a much more important rela-
tion to digestion than has been gen-
erally accorded to it, says Dr. Kellogg.
Food to be digested must be appetiz-
ing. Food which nauseates does not
stimulate the secretion of the fluid nec-
essary to digest it either in the mouth
or the stomach. The sense of taste
may be regarded as a sort of regula-
tion. Hence it is an important proper-
ty of food that the sense of taste may
be stimulated and that it may have
an opportunity to exercise its selective
and controlling functions.
WVhen one has eoat. a sufficient
amount of simple, wholr-omle food, the
sense of taste informs him of the fact
by declining to receive more. A per-
fect rule for mastication would be to
chew each morsel of food until there
is loft only a tasteless remnant. It is
useless to swallow such a residue, as it
uan have no nutritive value. When
'ood is taken in tins way, the sense of
taste has an opportunity to say
"enough" before too mucl(h lhas i)een
swa'llo wed and thus affords a I)pcrf(c
means of adapting the amount of food
taken to the needs of the body.

John Bull and the Lion.
What could be more absurd than the
conventional types of the nations--
those types which we see and accept
almost every day? England is pecul-
iarly unfortunate. To express our na-
tional characteristics we have a choice
of two figures, either a burly farmer or
a lion. The British lion gets some lit-
tle support from heraldry, and the na-
tional vanity is flattered by the anal-
ogy of our powers to those of the king
of beasts. But otherwise how little ap-
propriateness there Is in representing
us by an animal which most English-
men have only seen In the degrading
captivity of a menagerie, which has
never within historical times inhabited
their islands and about which they
know almost nothing.
Considering also the chronically de-
pressed state of British agriculture, it
seems an Ironical thing that the Brit-
ish nation should be typified by a farm-
er. If he were a manufacturer or a
merchant or a seaman, there would be
sonle appropriateness, but the stout
eighteenth century John Bull with
whom we are so familiar from allusion
and picture is a being quite unknown
to us in the flesh. He is just a good ex-
ample of the time honored. inaccurate.
conventional type. All vigor and sug-
gestiveness have long departed from
the figure. But we are too indolent to
replace hlm.-London Globe.
There Are Those Who Become Slaves
to This Nerve Soothing Food.
"The manufacture of chocolate said
J. R. Anso of Brazil, "is a great indus-
try. Of all the chocolate beans import-
ed into the United States tvio-thirds go
to one firm in Boston, and the other
third Is distributed among the other
manufacturers. The chocolates sold
are of various grades. The Caracas
chocolate is supposed to he the best.
"If you take the various grades, tech-
nically known as the Caracas, the
French, the German and so on, and
take a piece of each and place them in
a pan of water and allow them to dis-
solve, any expert will tell you which is
the best chocolate. The better grades
will leave no sediment. The others
will. This Is explained by the fact
that in the cheaper grades thl shell is
ground up and used as a 'filler.' The
lighter the chocolate the better the
grade. The cheaper grades are dark
owing to the ground up shell.
"It is a queer thing about chocolate
consumption. There are chocolate
fiends, just as there are opium fiends,
tobacco slaves and liquor slaves. I
cannot tell you why it Is. but if people
begin to eat chocolate the habit grows
upon them. I don't think any amount
of chocolate hurts any person. Of
course the cheaper grades of chocolatee
have a large percentage 'of rugar in
them, and sugar is to a certain ex-
tent injurious, but for the chocolate
Itself I don't think any one eats
enough to hurt ,'t' mateally. In
contradistinction ': th exhilaration of
alcoholic drinks coon-olate seems to be
a soother. Persons who are nervous
and Irritable find it a food that in a
way calms and soothes and satisfies
them. It is queer, but it Is the truth.
The consumption of chocolate is in-
creasing enormously in the United
States."-New York Tribune.
It Is well known that in the manufac-
ture of carbon steel microscopic dia-
monds are formed, and the curious
fact is stated by The Scientific Press
that from the examination of a num-
ber of steels from a variety of process-
es identical results were given. A,
piece weighing 300 grinms was cut from
a lump of steel and treated with nitric
acid, the insoluble residue collected
being mainly graphic carbon. After
being washed with water it was boil-
ed three times with fuming nitric acid.
which partially dissolved the residue,
hydrofluoric acid and then fuming sul-
phuric being used. there then remain-
ing nothing but graphite, which, after
being washed, was melte'l with chloi
rate of potash. The insoluble residue
obtained fell td the bottom of a vessel
filled with iodide of methylene, the lit-
tle. transparent octahedrons visible
through a microscope, which burned
on a sheet of platinum without any
ash, being the diamnronds.

His Valuable ''i ie i-....s:d.
A Chicago lady wi. o is tiie >wife of a
* wealthy and infiuritial cit~ca had a
great deal of trouble reccnt:y with her
domestics. She h;:: di.- i:'ryd her
cook and second g-irl and for a few
days was obliged to do her own cook-
It was on one of these mornings that
a peremptory knock sounded on the
kitchen door. She wiped her hands
on the apron and found at the door a
low browed, insolent looking man, with
a small satchel swung over his shoul-
"Go and tell your mistress I want to
see her, Bridget," he said, with a
wave of the hand. Madam surveyed
him in silence a moment and then re-
plied stiffly, "I don't choose to."
"Oh, you don't, eh? Well, now, trot
along, my dear, or I'll have you fired,"
he returned, with a vicious glance.
Mrs. Blank was backing within. To
be so insulted on her own doorstep was
such a heinous crime that her resources
failed her. But in a moment she hit
upon a plan that would bring this
piece of insolence to abject humility.
Drawing her stately figure up to the
full and fixing on him a gaze of im-
perious disdain, she' daid in measured,
frigid tones, "I am the lady of the

bang echoed out over his shoulders in-
to the yard.-Chicngo News.
