BLOTTED OUTi


By CAROL MURRAY

They were a rough lot of men under
'c( 'h.adow of Dia.mond hill-minors,
.!.. iters, prospectors, traders and cat-
inimcn-blut when old John Dyer, one
,f the mine bosses, brought his daugh-
er Kate from civilization to live with
,im there and keep hig humble cabin
'e hiad faith in that chivalry that has
always made the western man respect
the other sex. IHe knew that she wouk!
have rnary ad.Inmirers and that therf
would I:e tqu iriTs on her account, 1;-
he was a xwv ':)wver an' Ishe motherless.
inI li e 11Ul'( hae wvas doing what wav-
!)e t.
Vfhe cabin, 1i*e the rv--e and str'o,,
gling vii!:';:e, was backed by the grih:
'no-,unlinh, v ie!e al]rnn its front as far
as luan'n eye could reachi there g!it-
tered the white sands of the Mojavy"

eyes sarcih"d the desert for the first
time that out th'-'r, updor the blazing
s-'n the ral-taesna ke basked and the
lizard g.&,icd -:-iify over the bonas of
W'n -!In a ,d anima!'".
The p:e a-'t w: s not always at peace,
it: st:--V(-a r0se1Wllfuing a placid lake.
Now "und ii: an winld, born up in the
glche's of t\iL mountain, came down
,nd went a ei ng across the sands,
and tlen the spectator saw great
,couds of Cust as the flinty particles
were cau:;lt up and driven here and
'here to cut and gash and wound
whatever lived. The sands never
swept in frn'l the desert, but always
were driven the other way. Had it
nit been s> '-iamond mine and the
+, wn arouiTd it could not have been.
The con;: n of thie girl among the
thoitsand i' -', uas an event. There
-.irci a fv." o -l wni-en there-cooks
anlI l.un li' nc--- I t here was a girl,
a halud'om-:-:, -rp ;rl. Her influence
was f(lt 1a.l,"o:lt i::%o 1iately. The
'mm a' _... a *!,i Iiat more soap,
co:a 0 h!ikerchi'f'i aid looking
'.s., w-vre- c:'!el fior 'fro the com-
any st'e in a .e-'k thn were bought
dur'- ; the e '" .'; tlore Imonths.
At ;i-;st 2;0 of the thusai-nd men
d tert''ired 1 i nn introduction at
one,', but w'len it caine to the
paint, and even Ifer three months
uad pissed', t(e, v.w-re not a dozen
c: .x-is at tie cabin. A month or two
later it was said that only two of the
dozen stooj a chance. By "chance"
they moanut nira'ring. It nerer oc-
cured to any of themn that a girl might
have come among ihem without fall-
ing in love and marrying one of their
Inunm ier.
It was strange that among Kate's
eCrlicst and most persistent admirers
was Pedro Diaz, a full blooded Mex-
ic'".. lIe had charge of the company's
transportation, and lhe miaged through
the father to force an introduction.
1ie was kindly received by the girl,
but no more. He was tolerated by the
father, but there was no welcome for
him. Pedro was a swaggerer. He was
an egotist. Hie thought he was in love,
and once having made up his mind to
this he was ready to maintain what
he called his right by fair means or
foul.
The thousand men said that Pedro's


rival was Tommy Britt, the keeper of
the company's store. Hle was an Amer-
ican, young, fair looking, and down on
the books to be promoted for his en-
ergy, ambition and integrity. Perhaps
lihe admired, as all others did, but lie
had never asked himself If he was In
love. Hie found both father and daugh-
ter congenial company, and that would
have been his excuse had any one
asked him why he paid two visits a
week to the cabin.
There came a (lay when Pedro D!az
made up his mind to know his fate.
He chose an hour when he knew the
'girl would be alone, and he dressed
ih his best and knocked on the cabin
door. He believed himself irresist-
ible, aDd he smiled and smirked and
offered, his love. There was a moment
of astonishment, and he fountl himself
rejected. Thu girl tempered her re-
fusal as much as possible. It was her
first offer, but womanly instinct told
her to soften the blow even though the
man was obnoxious to her. -
"What! You refuse Pedro Diaz!" ex-
claimed the man in reply. "You re
-fuse me--me,_ who am worth $5,000
and could marry any senorita in my
own country! Do you quite understand
me?"
'1.I have no-love for you," replied 'he


girl.
"But that makes no difference. You
shall love me later on. I am Pedro
'Diaz. It is the first thme I ever did
a woman the honor of asking her to
marry me."
The girl's reply was a firm oue, and
Pedro flung himself out of the cabin
with auger raging in his heart. He
had been snubbed, humiliated, made a
fool of. There was a man In the case,
of course, and it could be none other
than the storekeeper. Whoever oppoa-
ed Pedro Diaz in any of his cherished
schemes must die. He was uot five
minutes deciding on the death of Britt.
That morning the young man had
ridden away across the desert. a street
of twenty long, hot miles, to strike the
railroad on the btier side and order
further supplies by telegraph. The ride
wam twenty m_.Up 9yr .And ttw.o

tance in a day, but it would be late In
the evening when he returned.
"I will meet and kill him as he. re-
turns," decided Pedro, and when dark-
ness fell he eluded observation as much
. as possible and rode out on the desert.
There was no trail across the sands.
He who would hold a straight course
must depend upon the compass, and he
must consult it often. There was fair
starlight-light enough to see his rival
many rods away. The sky was clear
of those scudding clouds which might
be taken al warnings that the whirl-
winds were being born in the cold air
of the gulches, and no noise came from
the mountain except the whispers of
the pines to the cedars.
When Pedro had made five miles
straight out from the base lhe pulled
in his horse and sat and waited, his
face to the west and LIs ears alert for
the slightest sound. For an hour he
waited, and then of a sudden a cold
chill struck the back of his neck. IHe
whirled his* horse about with an oath
on his lips.
"It is the sand storm!" he mutter-ed
as he jumped to the ground.
He had a blanket for himself and one
for his horse. The aniuial lay down a i
the word and suffered his head to be-
wrapped, and just as' the fir:t skarp
grains began, to ily the tman snuggled
down beside the animal and mnuiled his
head and swore.
Hoe had seen a hundred sand storm'-
on that desert. They came with a puft
and went the same way. .In live min-
utes he would be up and watching
again, but when five minutes had
passed the gusts were stronoi'. At
the end of ten they began circling an(i
running across' the sands like wraiths..
They also dug ceep i-to the l nds,
and when they met with an oi)-truc-
tion they covered it in. Main ;ani i-iSJt
were soon in dan(m:-r of sufi'oc-tion 'n11 i
had to struggle up to throw off the
weight. They were j ast in tinjp to be
caught by a cir'ing bre-e a ml sptun
around as if they vwcre straws, and
when the iman v;was i iu on his face
at last and coverieds a f-. -,: deep in aii
instant the horse uttered a neigh of
terror and galloped heavily away7
"It will pass, it will pass, and I will
have mny revenge!" muttered Pedro as
he stoo:i up with his back to the blast.
but it did not pass.
He was flung this way and that, car-
ried along or left half senseless on the
sands, and not for a full hour did the
wind scream out its goodby to the
desert and return to Its sleep. Then the
surface of the desert was smooth again,
and the mani who came riding from the
west could not tell that under his
horse's feet lay a human body buried
two febt deep. There had been a Pedro
Dia',. The sqnds of the Moja-ve had
blotted hium out.




MISTAKEN

IDENTITY

By FRANK H. SWEET

Copyright, 1005, by Frank H. Sweet


The train stopped only a few mo-
ments, but the conductor and a porter
bustled out, with deference in their
every movement, and assisted the one
lady into the car with much bowing.
The train was already in action again
when Enos stumbled .breathlessly up
the steps and sought to enter the car.
The. conductor was standing inside the
door.
"This is a parlor car, sir," he said.
"Oh, that's all right," Enos answered
quickly. "Extra, I s'pose?"


' "Of course; but I doubt if there's
any unoccupied space. Porte:"'
The car attendant was just return-
ing froum the lady's chair. He stopped
in.quiriagly, dusting cloth in hand.
"Have you aily spare seats?"
"Just one, sah, down t'other end."
"'Very well. Give it to this gentle-
inYu n."
Tli"e'ch Cn -.t'tor turned as he spoke
,ind iprecei.l him a few paces dowl-v
tthe car he pn ple and bent over the
chair of a l;y. As he passed, Enos
leanei to::'r,1 her with a diffident
"Hello, ?,i'.''a," but -the increasing
noise of the I tr;-in drowned his voice,
and lie stun: --:'d on with crimsoning
face. hle lady had not even perceived
bini.
Enlis f-,)i,;v,(d the porter through the
aar, hat in bhi mi!, with a feeling that lie
aats intruding iLto some one's drawing
room. t'a-ss-' a ,-rs were seated or re-
'lining in various attitudes-some read-
ing, some talking, but most of them
nv.lh their attention fixed upon the
chair over which the conductor was
leaning. Eios had never been in a
drawing room car before, but even
amid allethis elegance and among these
strangers he perceived that Martha was
understood and appreciated better than
lie had understood and appreciated her
Wlmself. HIe heard a subdued. "Who


him more than ten years.
"No* do you really, Martha?"
IIe made an impulsive movement, but
was suddenly conscious that the plat-
form was-well filled with people and
that some of them were looking at
him curiously.
"I'll got a carriage for you, dear," he
said hurriedly, "and-and I guess, if
you.don't mind, I'll ride along. I never
have ridden with you yet-not right
close by, you know."
When the carriage was procured and
he had helped her in, almost timidly,
she looked up into his face.
"I don't believe that I ever shall for-
get that train ride, Enos," she said.
"Nor I," heartily. "Sitting there
v;'. i;Lg you and seeing all the men
round made me hasty and inconsider-
ate. But I'm glad of it now. I suppose
it mnght have been a long time before I
felt I'd a right to speak." 0
She caught her breath suddenly, her
r'ace paling.
"Oh, Enos," she whispered, "I-I nev-
r paid them. You told me about get-
Ling a ticket, but I was late, and they
hurried me to the car and '.re so nice
to me that I-I never thought about
paying. What shall I do? And they
were so awfully nic6 too."
SHo looked puzzled.
*k.


"It dirs4' s _'nm S -'ort of fUunl y," he a.'-
knowl -1 ed l. ';eu.-rally they're 1prr-tty
particular about pay. I womNlde thayv
,idlu't ask"
"Th.y dlldn't want to hurt n y f... I
Ing.. Enos. They were awfully ui..-,.
Iut I'LU so a.Lhited."
HIe cousidered a mnmonnt.
"Youi-we don't want to be lbehl)-ndcl
to them any." lie said warmly. "* r,.-k
on I'd ette-er meet t!hit s ame train to-
ajc.-row and settle with the coudn.-tor-."
"If ouly you would," In a relwie,-i--1
r.-,ice.
So the next day Enos was at the sta-
tin, and when the polite conductor
reached the platform he was the first
to accost him.
A few minutes and the puzzled look
left his face, and presently.he turned

..u;;y and marveled at his presumption.
m pres:intg it as strorgly as he had.
The conductor came through the car,
" ind a man in tie next chair reached
.ut and touched his arm.'
-"Can you tell me who she is?" he-.
asked in a low voice. "The.car seems.
to be getting curious over so much at-
tention."
The condLuctor answered in a voice
equally low, but. Enos caught the
words.
"Si'.s Mrs. Roche, wife, of Cattle
King Roche, you know. He's making
a- deal for our railroad. That's why our
management is anxious to shioiv himi
attention. We received notice that she
Nwou:d take our train at a certain point
and for us to show her all the courtesy
in our power. Seems a very nice little
woman, ibut a little, just a little., too
phased with everything. -yces one an
impre-ssion that she -hasn't 'traveled
much. But I have lead that Roche
made llis money very sudLonly, so per-
haps the attention is a little over-
whelming."
Enos had turned away before this
ang was again wat-.hi:.. Mlaria. He
had heard that a man of the name of
Roche was negotiating, for the railroad,
and lie now allowed hi'3 gti--i._- to wan-
der up the ca,, flial'y ixi,,,g upon, a
richly dressed woman in i.- e. ch'.ir be-
yond Martha as the one '. was' a lit-
tie overxcahlincd by attention. :1...- did
look self conscious and,- he thought,
just a little supercilious too.
As they stood upon the platform at
thei cdesti-:iatiton halt hour later
watching the train gl*ce alway MIartha
saw Enos turn.towvard :'- not slowIly
and difflider-ty; ias a' wont, bvu
with head erect andWT hands out.
And somnchow after ,e et 'i:i- _-e on
the train'it (id not ~.e-ti i:'aouge, lbut
rather a natural *.,piiC-e. To ha-e-
seen himi awkawrd and ill at ese just
tlh-n would have been a shock. It wca
so much nicer for men to be-easy and
courteous, and Enos was king among
men.
She put her hands into his naturally,
impulsively.
"Oh, Enos," she breathed, "wasn't It
beautiful? I never Imagined- it could
be so nice in a train. Why didn't you
tell me?" .
"Well, I don't reckon I knew," he ac-
knowledged frankly. "I was never in
one of these parlor cars before, and it
isn't so awfully nice in one of the
others when it's crowded with fot',
But say, Martha," still holding UIe
hands and allowing something to catom
into his voice which she had never
heard there before, but which brought
a soft color to her cheeks, "you looked
awfully pretty in those nice clothes,
the prettiest I have seen. There wasn't
a woman In the car who could touch
you in looks, not even the one who's to
buy the railroad. I just sat and looked
at you and wished I'd got things set-
tled more solid and wondered if I'd
ever dare to speak to you at all. But
I just can't wait any longer, Martha"-
his voice quivering with suspense-"not
a minute. Do you s'pose you could
learn to love me a little-not all at
once, you know, but just a little at a
time, as you can. I didn't intend to
be so hasty and Inconsiderate, but that
ride seems to have stirred me all up
somehow. But don't you feel upset,
Martha. Just take all the time you
want to think it over, dear."
The flush deepened. Did she hear
aright? Had that last word really
Scome-from Enos' sloq s?
"I don't need any ', .thlnk it
over, Enos," she answered in a low
voice, but firmly. "I do love you."
She might have added that this an-
swer had been ready and waiting for


ture to eat spoon meat so hot that the
tears stand in your eyes, which is as
unseemly as the gentlewoman who
pretended to have as little a stomach
as she had a mouth, and therefore
would not swallow her peas by spoon-
ful, but took them one by one and cut
them In two before she would eat them.
It is very unseemly to drink so large ,
a draft that your breath is almost gone
and you are forc-ed lo blow s-trongiy to
rec-xovw yv";UI'e;lf."

Sometimes he went and returned by the
same ship, for there was little to gain
Ly staying abroad. Everybody liked
Lim, and today he has an immense
pl'etice, a considerable proportion of
which ble admits frankly can be traced
t0 his steamship acquaintance. One
day a year ago he met a lawyer of
about his own ago and degree of sue
cess at their club.
"I'm going abroad Saturday," said
the lawyer. "Come along," he addeci,
half in jest. The doctor hesitated for a
moment in thought. "All right," he
said. "What boat?" The lawyer told'
him and then asked with some surprise
how he could manage to be away on
such short i ae'ice, and if he had intend-
ed to take iLs vacation at that time.
"I've been over eighteen times," said
the doctor, with a genial smile, "and
for the same reason that you have gone

Auteedotes of Quinn.
James Quinn, a noted actor of Gar-
rick's time, loved to dil9f-nd was
often, fuddled in conse d ence when lie
went on the stage. Qace while playing
with Peg Wotfbngj who was acting
Sylvia, his daughter, in "The Recruit-
ing Officer," steadd of asking her,
"Sylvia, howold were you when your
mother died?" he said "married."
Sylvia laughed, and being out of her
cue, could only stammer, "What, sir?"
"Psfiaw," cried the more confused
Quinn, "I mean, how old were you
when your mother was born?"
The body of Duke Humphrey was
returned from Egypt, embalmed in the
rarest wine and the richest spices.
Upon seeing this Quinn soliloquized as
follows:
Oh, plague on Egypt's arts, I sayl

Rich wines and spices waste!
Like sturgeon or like brawn shall 'I
Bound in a precious pickle lie,

"No," walled Tommy, "I don't want

Rainless Regions.
The rainless regions of the globe owe
their aridity to the fact that they are
shut off from the influence of most
winds by high mountain chains. The
chief of these are upper Egypt, the
Sahara, the desert of Gobi and the
coast of Peru. The driest place in the
world is probably that part of Egypt
between the two lower falls of tihe
Nile. Ranin has never boeen known to
fall there, and the inhabitants do not
-elieve travelers who tell thenm that
water cal fall fotom the sky. The great
tr::ia ,winds at the starting point-s of'
lo- ia !ath- are the cause of d:'oug'tglt
and barrenminess, but where they cross
land at the termination of their course
they give out bounteous rain supplies-.
T1he contrasts thus offered are ver.1v
striking. Thus some parts of the Mo-
roccan Sahara near the head of the
northeastern Atlantic trade wind (do
not experience a shower for perhaps
twenty years at a time, while the same
wind when it reaches the coast of.
South America.produces a rainfall rep-
resenting a depth of twenty .feet of
water in a year.

had been a mistake' and that the con-'
ductor had accepted the money and
asked to be remembered to her.

Overreached Himself.
An old farmer had a choice lot of
cows, and-a neighbor, seeing the herd
in the pasture, asked for how much
be'could have his pick of one. "Twen-
ty-five dollars," said the owner. "All
fight. I'll be around tomorrow and
select one." The next day the owner
of the cows told his hired man to
drive the only poor cow in the lot to
the barn. Soon the buyer put in an
appearance to buy a cow. IHe missed
one, however, and was suspicious.
"How is this? You said I could have
my pick of the lot. Where is that
other cow?" "Oh, that cow you don't
want," said the owner. "She Is old
and no good, so I placed her in the
barn. You don't want her." But the
'myer insisted on having that cow. ITe
;uspected shu was the 1-cst one of the
ot. ",All right, then," said tli seller.

"Didn't you notice his eyes-how re-

That is a bad sign."
"Not in his case," said Mr. Beecher.
"Didn't you observe his nose? It is

With a nose like that, why should his

Mr. Beecher's judgment of his caller

Short on K's.
During the early days of New Zea-
land an apologetic paragraph appeared
in an Auckland paper in which the
editor explained the absence of lower
case "K's" in his issue. He had fool-
ishly lent these letters from his font to
the government printer, who, having
failed to return them, the Indulgent
reader would please notice that wher-
ever a blank space appeared in a word
the letter "K" was to be understood.
There are only fourteen letters in the
Maori alphabet, and the letter "K"
is used In that language as frequently
as the letter "E" in English.
The Right Bower.
Before Millard Fillmoire was elected
to the vice presidency of the United
States he was head of the law firm of
Fillmore, Hall & Havens of Buffalo.
It was one of the leading law firms of
the state. He was the defendant's at-
torney in a certain action in Buffalo.
At the opening of the trial of the case
the plaintiff's attorney -stated to the
jury that lie would have to depend en-
tirely upon the justice of his client's
case, as the defendant had sought and
obtained d the aid and counsel of one of
the ablest firms of lawyers in western
New York, and he might say he had
?oppsed to him the right bower of the
egal profession. "WVhat does he mean
hy that?' said Mr. Fillmore. Mr. Ha-
ceus rep li.-d, "He means you." "Yes,
kno)w," rep lied Mr. Fillmore, "but
,-:iat does hei mean by that particular

The especial characteristic of the

Take shelter in I wasy hut on the mouth

inmates had been longing to see you.
This will not be due to the fact that
you seem prosperous; Indeed, yotu
would be even more graciously wel-
comed if you were i whegs. Nor is their
courtesy only exhibited when they are
hosts. Once when I was exploring the
Burregn' t bed Clare a ragged old woman.

sir," she said "but did you are thinappe to
meet a loaf on the road?" 'Deed thett,
ma'arm," said he,, bowing respectfully,
"and I'm sorry I did not." "Who was
she?" I asked him when we had driven
out of her hearing. 'Deeda then, and
con't know," said he, 'that Is .e poor
soul that has lost her loaf and will be
goii' to bed hungry tot, lght."o On an-
othiir occasion an aged umn clad in

ever Interesting to the British reader.
The manner of it would seem to pique
himi a little and shock him at the same
time. In the Nineteenth Century Dan-
iel Crilly gives some account of the
origin of the peculiar American liabit
of treating serious matters humorously
after dinner and contrasts a banquet
in New York with, say, a Mansion
House dinner in London. He quotes
Lowell's ingredients of after dinner
oratory. "They are," said Lowell, "the
joke, the quotation and the platitude,
and the successful platitude, in my
judgment, requires a very high order
of genius." As an example of Ameri-
can wit Mr. Crilly gives the follow-
in 1 :
".I chanced to be in Chicago (said this
gentleman at a dinner board to a com-
pany of fellow New E'iglanders) two
or three days after the great fire of
1871. As I walked among tle mnoking

how careful ,e- may be, he is liable to

health department, especially if the
event has occurred in the poorer dis-

a desire to see that the record of vital
statistics Is properly kept, but because
there is a reward of a shilling to the
one who is first to notify the health
officer, provided this notification is givy
en within forty-eight hours. As soon
as the tip is received the mother is vis-

"PUTS OUT THE LIGHT."
Before it was fairly daylight, last
Monday morning, a tow of the nearest
neighbors of Mri-. and Mrs. J. F. Lar-
gent heard The report as of a small
fire-aria at or near their residence on
Wilnot street south of Loraine ave-
nue; but the few who heard it sup-
posed it to be someone shooting at
game or at soumi verm-iniri in quest of
poultry and gave it no further
thought. Some three-quarters of an
hion r; or perhaps longer, later, Mr.
Laigent, who had not risen from hisl
bed, sooner, arose, and going out into

wile upon the step of tie annall shop-
bnilhding not far from the house, with
a track of blood down her cheek and
a pool of the life fluid on the ground
below it. Horrified at the finding, he
at once went for his nearest neigh-
bors, Messrs. Faller and Krebs an.1
,besoghit them nto come with hiin to
hib rioine, heir the gruesome sight
met their vision, the body being al-
ready cold in death with a small re-
volver lying upon a board on the-
ground where it had fallen from her
hand; but they thought best not to
disturb it, and while a guard stood
near it to prevent intrusion, steps
were taken for holding an inquest.
Justice Stulrrock being called, as
ex-officio coroner, caused the sum-
moniing of a jury consisting ot Messrs.
J. H. Drumniond, foreman; A. V.
Landgraf, B. B. Smith, J. T, Gwalt-
ney, M. G. Post and A. H. Brake.
Proceeding to examine, they found
a small bullet hole in the light temr-
ple from which the blood had flown,
and every evidence that the mis-
guided lady had taken her own life.
and rendered a verdict in accordance
with these facts.
Undertaker Brake took charge of
the body and proceeded to prepare it
for burial; the funeral services be-
ing conducted at the Presbyterian
church at 4:30 o'clock that afternoon
by Rev. C. L. Joynor in the presence
of a vast congregation, '.essar. J. H.

bearers, and the remains were taken
to the St. Andrew cemetery, where

Mr. and Mrs. Largent came to St..

4thortly afterward bought a modest

modeled and rebuilt and is to-day,

Seotchmen are fond of an argument,
and delight to find flaws In an oppo-
nent's logic. Two blacksmiths were
once conversing as to which was the
first trade In the world. One Insisted
that It must have been gardening, and
quoted from Genesis: "Adam was put
Into the garden of Eden to dress it
and keep It." "Aye, John," retorted the
other, who had stood up for his own
trade, "but wha made the spades?"

THREE JURORS CURED

Of Cholera Morbus with One Siiall

Edwardsville, county teat of Clebourne

some fresh meat and some souse meat
and it gave ran cholera morbus in a very
acvere form. I was never more sick in nmy
life and sent to the drug store for a cer-
taini cholera mixture, but the druggist
sent me a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy instead,
saying that he bad what I sent for, but
that this medicine was so mueh bnttei ho
would rather tend it to me in the fix I
was in. I t'ok one dose of it aid was
better in five minutes. The second dose

The Muff.
In many of the portraits of the six-
teenth century one often sees a strip
of rich, soft fur wound around the
wrist of a noble dame. This was used
to cover the neck or fulfill the func-
tion of the muff, and to it was often
attached a small animal's head or a
skull cunningly wrought in metal and
adorned with precious stones. The
first Venetian muffs were small, made
of a single piece of velvet, brocade or
silk lined with fur, the opening enrich-
ed with gold or silver buttons set with
stones. By 1662 the muff seems to
have been recognized as the necessary
adjunct of the wardrobe of a woman
of fashion.,

What to Do.
There is comfort in the knowledge so
often expressed, that Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-
Root, the great kidney remedy fulfills every
wish in curing rheumatism, pain in the
back, kidneys, liver, bladder and every part
of the urinary passage. It corrects inability
to hold water and scalding pain in passing
it, or bad effects following use of liquor,
uine or beer, and overcomes that unpleasant
iccessity of being compelled to go often
during the day, and to get. up many times
during the night. The mild and the extra-
ordinary effect of Swamp-Root is soon
realized. It stands the highest for its won-
derful cures of the most distressing cases.

A lawyer who Ls fund of a joke went
to supper after the theater with a par-
ty of frIends, and he ordered coffee:
"Please bring It in a cup with the
handle on the left side," he said confi-
dentially to the waiter. "I'm left hand-
ed, and I can't use any other kind of a
cup."
"Yes, sir," stammered the waiter. "I
will, sir."
He was seen to hasten away and con.
fer with the head waiter. The head
waiter bore down on the party.
'What sort of a cup was that you
wanted, sir?" he asked. ,
"Cup with the handle on the left side.
I'm left handed," said the lawyer.
The head waiter disappeared to re-
turn a little later obviously perturbed.
"The cup you"- he began.
"What?" said the lawyer. "Do you
mean td' tell me that in a first class
cife you hanu't such a thing as a cup
with the handle on the left side? Ab-
surd! Why, I couldn't possibly use
any other kind. You must have plenty

For Sore Throat.
Those subject to sore throat will find
the following preparation simple, cheap
and highly efficacious when used in
the early stage: Pour a pint of boiling
water on thirty leaves of the common
sage and let the infusion stand for an
hour; add vinegar sufficient to make it
pleasantly acid and honey to taste.
The mixture should be used as a gar-
gle twice a day. There is no danger
if some of it is swallowed.

Disappointment on Both Sides.

plied the agent. "I thought you were
a very rapid walker."--Philadelphia

we must make a wish and pull, and,
when It breaks, the one who has the
bigger part of it will have his or her
wish gratified." "But I don't know
what to wish for," she protested. "Oh,
you can think of something" he said.
"No, I can't," she replied. "I can't
think of anything I want very much."
"Well, I'll wish for your" he exclaim-

Looks After the Cents.
A simple illustration will show the
care thaf is taken of cents by one of
the big banks of (<'hicago. Stamped
postal cards are not used, and not one
of the thousands of routine letters that
are written every day is stamped or
sealed until the whole routine mail of
the day is assembled in the afternoon.
Then all the cards and letters to one
correspondent are put in a single en-
velope, and, except for letters from the
officers and the like, the bank comes as
near as possible to get its entire mall
carried at 2 cents an ounce or a cent
for every postal card instead of often
paying 2 cents for a quarter of an
ounce, as it would have to do if every
communication were sealed and stamp-
ed separately. This little matter of s
getting full value out of a two cent s
stamp makes a saving of from $25 to t
$-9 a day.-World's Work.

Among the earliest of Easter cu,
tonis are the following:
At Queen's college, Oxford, a hbrii;.
placed by the cook to simuli:te a i :t,
on horseback is set on a corn salad :-.n
brought to the table. This is suppose
to represent a red herring riding awa
on horseback and ia the last vestige o
the once popular pageants of rejolcin..-
for the end of the Lenten fast.
ot was erstwhile a habit in Englisi
towns- for the boys after the Easte:
service to run into the street aun-.'
msnatch the buckles from the shoes o,
thle girls whom they were able to cache.
Easter Monday, however, It was turi
about, and the women chased the men.
If the men refused to pay a sixpence
or happened to wear boots the women
tried to snatch their hats, and to re
cover a hat cost a sixpence.
In some old towns great cakes were
brought to church and there divided
among the young people.
A singular Easter custom was that
of "lifting and weaving." A man sit-
ing contentedly In his home was sur-
prised by the servants and women of
his household, who entered bearing a
Wreat armchair lined with white and
decorated with ribbons au-1 favors.
The man was forced to sit In the chair
nd be lifted by the women, to each of
,hom he must give a sixpence." On a
.ay In Easter week, either Monday or 1
Tuesday, the man lifted the women
with similar attendant ceremonies.
Edward I. was lifted In his bed by
is ladies and maids of honor, and a
record shows the payment made by
im to have been some $2,000 in six-
ences. -
In older days in England monks at
;aster acted plays in churches, the fa-
orite subject being the resurrection.
rot only were these plays enacted In
he churches on these festival days, but
here was dancing, particularly in the
'renlh cathedrals.
Even the sun, it is said, dances on
master day.
In Ireland great preparations were
tade for the last day of Lent., Holy
aturday, about 9 o'clock, a hen and a
piece' of bacon were put in the pot, and
t 12 there were eating and4 much mer. 1
making. At 4 mill-o.e to see the sun
ance in honor of the resurrection.
r
eRita a as oporific.
"IT people would eat plenty of rice
bey would not need drugs to make
hem sleep," said a New York drug
.lerk, pausing for a moment ih put- 1
ing up a sleeping potion for a we-
ian. "There is much sald about rice
s a strengthening food, but few Amer-
cans know that it has soporific pow-
rs. If properly cooked it has. Rice
should be washed many times until the


vater no longer appears milky. It
should then be soaked a few hours, 1
salted and boiled rapidly about thirty 1
minutes. When cooked in this way it
ean be eateu each day with relish, and 1
he person who eats it sleeps well and .
Lreams not at all."


A Reinmily without a Peer.
"I find Chamberlain's Stomach and
1iver Tablets more lienelicil tlhaiL aniv
other remedy I ever used for stomach
trouble," says J. P. Klote of Edina, Mo.
For any disorder of the stomach, bilious-
ness or constipation these tablkts are

An Old Enxgl'ih Ballad.
"Greensleeves" is a good old English
ballad and tune mentioned by Shake-
speare in the "Merry Wives of Wind-
sor" and has been a favorite since the
latter part of the sixteenth century.
The tune is much older than the words,
probably as old as the days of Henry
VIII. It is also known as "The Black.
smith" and "The Brewer" and was a
great favorite with the cavaliers. A
modified version is found In the "Beg-

THE

PROFESSOR'S

SECRET
DBy TROY ALLISON
Copylght, 1904, by Troy AUi ,'m

There was something on the profess-
or's mipd. Every young woman in the
senior Greek class realized it. He had
shown symptoms of it for three weeks,
but this morning it had assumed the
form of an undeniable fact. When the
shy girl of the class got rattled and
construed a present infinitive as a past
participle he did not even notice it.
This same shy little Ruth Payne had
assumed the proportions of a problem
to Professor Claxton. The girl never
gave a decent recitation, yot passed her
examinations with the highest marks.
He had tried not to harbor a suspicion
that she resorted to unfair means on
examinations, but he could think of
nothing else that would solve the mys-
tery.
The professor's mind, however, was
agitated by a more complicated prob-
lem than Ruth Payne's poor recitations
in Gr.ek. He bad'a guilty conscience.
He felt that each and every pair of
feminine eyes before him were search-
lights turned upon his secret. He was
convinced that each young woman
knew there was a package of letters in
his vest pocket. Of course letters are
commonplace In a way and something
any man might Innocently possess, but
these were anonymous. That was
enoughh to make him turn crimson, but
the knowledge that he had enjoyed
reading these letters and moreover had
actually mailed answers to the address
given hung over him like a .shadow.
le knew there had at various times in
the world's history been other anony-
mous letters. Really to receive them
was a different matter. Ownership
lends a certain definite Interest.
The professor constantly remember-
ed the. first of these letters.' He had
walked leisurely to the postoffice after
the early supper, unconscious of im-
:>ending fate. The college town was a
small one, and it lent variety to life to
~wn a postoffice box and go for oie's
mail rather than have it sent by the
college carrier.
On tl'tt nimrorable night he had tak-
en his letters and looked them over
listlessly until he came-to the one that
was the proverbial bombshell in his
x:perlence. lie read it over three
times before his astonished faculties
-vere able to grasp the fact that there
vas a woman, an unknown woman,
vho professed an admiration for him.
'e was not quite sure that it was ex-
;c-tly respectable to have an unknown
woman write him a letter, and his pe-
dantic soul knew that if it did not go
beyond the bounds of respectability it
at least must be called an impropri-
ety. The first letter troubled his peace
of mind for days. It was witty and
bright and contained just that delicate
soupcon-of flattery that charms the
man who believes he abominates flat-
tery.
Had not she insinuated that she had
met him occasionally and had been
struck with the idea that he possessed
a depth of understanding it would be
interesting to fathom?
She further stated she was at that
time leading so quiet and restricted a
life that she was at a loss for some
real intellectual interest. His mind
immediately pictured the sister of the
president of the college, who was
spending a quiet winter in the small
village for the sake of her health. Yet
It seemed impossible that a woman of
so much dignity and reserve could take
such a step even for amusement.
After pondering over the matter sev-
eral days carefully and methodically,
'according to his custom, he had hesi-
lated and been lost. He had answered
that letter. The address given was in
a neighboring city, and he had found

!I-
hrmself g3ing to te postoficc after-
ward under the stimulus of an unusual
excitement. He had really been curt-
,us to see the second one.
He had a hazy recollection of an
adage that the second step in wrong
doing had won renown as being less
ifticeult than the first. He' felt posi-
tive symptoms of pleasure in answer-
ing the second letter.
Hle knew that the dignity of his posi-
tion would fall flatter than the western
Roman empire If the girls in his class
once got an inkling that he was a
factor in an anonymous correspond-
ence. Nevertheless he grew more ab-
sentminded every day, and every day
his curiosity increased, this pedant of
thirty-five who had all his life refused
ta take an atom of interest in any
woman.
So the girls nudged each other and
giggled as much as they seemed it
permissible for members of the senior
class to giggle, and little, fair haired
Ruth Payne read her Greek, hopelessly
involving all parts of speech.
He was walking on the college cam-
pus one afternoon meditating with
,much satisfaction on the fact that he
had at last gathered courage to beg
his anonymous friend to disclose her
identity and let him cal the next time
he went to the city. The professor was
a shy muijund it required
all the nerve rfelpossessed to make this
request. He was thinking it could not
be many days before he received an an-
swer when he noticed Ruth Payne
walking, in front of him, poring over
a book In the manner of a schoolgirl
who goes up for examination the next
day.
A tiny green snake ran across the
path, and the professor caught the girl
In his arms as she screamed and reeled
toward him.
While he stood gazing helplessly at
her white face other girls rushed to his
assistance.
"It was an awful snake!" Iuth gasp-
ed when she opened her eyes.
After the girls had taken her to the.
house he picked up the Greek Syntax
she had dropped in her fright.
SA sealed letter, ready for mailing,
dropped out. The address was plainly
"Prtfessor R. (4. Claxton," and the
writing was in the familiar hand of
the anonymous lady.
Ile sat down limply on the nearest
iron bench., There seemed something
awry with the universe. Was it pos-
sible that this pretty child had written
such letters-a little blond girl who
blushed furiously and stammered ev-
ery time she Was spoken to in class!
He opened the letter eagerly. Its
superscription gave him that privilege.
IIe noticed, too, that the girl's name
written on the fly leaf of the Greek
eyntax was identical with the writing
on the envelope. He read on to learn
that he could call on her at the end of
the college year when he passed
through the city on his way home-If
he still cared to meet her.
The professor went to his room, his
thoughts in chaotic condition.
That night he followed her to the
corner of t veranda, where she sat
gazing a tedly on the moonlit
lawn.
"So I 'hav met you," he said quietly.
He sat (own.beside her dnd looked at
her ijntently. "And-so-you-are-the
-woman?" he added slowly.
She gave a frightened gasp and look-
ed at him with terror and shame in
her eyes.
"It was-awful of me, I know. It was
a dreadful thing for me to do." She
turned away from him, and he could
see she Was trembling with nervous-
ness.
"It has given me more pleasure than
anything that ever happened in my
whole life," he said simply.
She gave him one quick glance and
hurried into self justification.
"I have always been timid," she said
in an intense whisper, "and I Was so
mortified when I would get nervous
and fall in my recitations. The minute
you asked me a question every thought
seemed to leave my mind. I got more
embarrassed each day. I got desperate.
I determined you should know I was
capable of having a thought. That
wild scheme of writing you anony-
mous letters came, and-I wrote them.
I'm so--very-sorry." And thie professor
heard the sob in her voice.
He answered earnestly: "I'm glad--I
shall be eternally glad-If you tell me I
need never give up those letters. They
have become part of my life."
The girl's eyes grew wide with emo-
tion. He gazed at her wonderingly, try-
ing to understand how he had failed to
recognize her before. Now she seemed


some one that had been in his life for-
ever. He had been lonely, and he re-
membered that she herself was an or-
phan, that after the close of the term
she would take up the burden of teach-
ing.
"I-you mean that you want me to
keep on writingg to you?" she asked

"I meanythat I want to teach you
how to talk; tome," he said, smiling. "I
want to keep with me forever the wom-
anly companionship of my letters."
She gasped in astonishment.
"But I thought you believed me stu-
pid. I couldn't recite my Greek to you
decently to save my life."
The professor looked Into her star-
tled eyes and laid his hand on hers.
"I don't care if you couldn't tell
Greek from Chinese," he said solemnly,
deriding the hobby of years.
"But don't you think me a frivolous,
doll baby kind of a girl?" she question-
ed timidly.
He leaned over and touched her fair
hair with all the reverence of a child
who has never before owned a golden
haired doll
"I think you are the sweetest thing
on God's earth," he said, pressing his
lips to her hand.

Men With Beards.
What a vast difference there is be
tween one beard and another! There
Is the long, untrammeled beard, broad
and thick, which the owner caresses as
if it were an infant. Men with such
beards may, I Wink, as a rule, be trust-
ed rather more than other men. Can
You imagine a Venetian doge or a
member of the council of ten without
a beard?. I cannot. If you have. seen
a man of mark fondle his long beard
luring the processes of reflection you
will be apt to wonder whether or not
'is mnind(,ould lose its equilibrium if
*e were ltlhe night to be shaven clean. I

VENOMOUS EMOTIONS.
bcuntiments Whict!:, It Ir S. a,. Liter-
ally POFal.- Our l!ood.
Anger, fear, ii:y,ii:ety, ar al:.oig t :
emotional or secnilmLent which !i-e:';l,
poison our blood. It h:-s often ibeei'n
said that evil thoughts 1a:` lP;;sonIOuS,
the meaning beiig that they corrupt
other people, but the real fact is that
they poison our own bodies.
By losing control of curselves and
indulging in anger, by y ielding to anx-
iety, fear and unuw-holesoi"ie thoughts,
we cause an irritation or di.sturtbance
which, according to the latest saying-
of scientists, has the effect of produc-
Ing a poison in the blood that ma,
have serious consequences.
Naturalists declare that the venom
of snakes is generated by anger and
fear; that it is rapidly collteec!,1 in a
ppcial receptacle and thence dis-
chlarged at the object of its ang r or
fear, and it is further exi la:nd that
the same. lioce.s t:;ikes place in the
human body, but that we have nu) spe-
cial organ to receive it, and it therefore
disperses !a the blood, acting against
ourselves instead of for our protection
Be that as it may, it is generally con
ceded that we are literiliy poisoned by
the emotions mentioned ,na by any
sentiment or passion whi'h upsets the
smooth working of our minds.-Hom- n
Notes.

MOVING ON FRIDAY.
There Seems to Be a Lot of Supersti-
tion Abont It.
"Friday Is a kind of holiday in our
business," said the professional mover.
"There is a big lot of superstition in
this matter, and, except in cases of
actual necessity, it is hard to get any-
body to move on Friday. If a few
families that initend to change quar-
ters soon could only be induced to put
aside their fo)iish prejudice against
the sixth day of the week they could
be set up in their new home with half
the trouble and inconvenience they will
experience on any other day. I have
explained that to many prospective
customers, but the chances are that
most of then will vote to join the rush
fatherr than tempt bad luck by moving
)n Friday.
"Mo!t of our movers dislike Friday

IV.lhen You Lose Your Taste.
"'Vh'ln pe,>;'le lose their taste," said
a !hy.si;:ian, 'tht'y retain their old likes
,ld d;s;ke.- just the same. Miss Smith,
.,:' iL ;tain', can't tell a slice of roast
')cer from a fried onion, ibut she dis-
iked onions before her taste went, and
icrefore she won't eat them now.
-'ci! lose, tlhir ta;te through severe
lKnt;::es,, anI:d with the loss of taste the
ows of simell nearly always goes; hence
;u'-er, cruel practical jokes. I know a
Wn-oiim;u wilhoit smell to whom a pint
of oniou .jii'(.e was sent in a cologne
bottle. 'he delugel herself with this
J1iion juice :1iand appeared in a crowded
heated ballroom.
"To r man without taste or smell all
cheeses must be alike, yet old Brown-
low won't touch limburger. He says It
would make him ill, and probably it
would. It is very odd to hear these de-
ficient L'oplet praising and condemning
food and drink. They do it, though.
They do it as heartily as you or I. I
have seen old Brownlow send away in
disgust a glass of white wine, claiming
it was corked, while at the same time
he ate calmly an addled egg."-Balti-
more Herald.


'Your Habitual Expression.
What kind of 'an expression do you,
wear habitually? Is it sour, morose,
repellent? Is it a mean, stingy, corn
temptible, uncharitable, intolerant ex-
pression? Do you wear the expression
of a bulldog, a grasping, greedy, hun-
gry expression, which Indicates an
avaricious nature? Do you go about
among your employees with a thiunder-
cloud expression, with a melancholy,
(0-'p iri :i t. hopeless look on your face,
or do you wear the sunshine expres-
sion whic-h radiates good cheer and
hope. which indicates a feeling of good
will and of helpfulness? Do people
smile and look happier when you ap-
proach them, or do they shrink from
you anfd feel a chilly goose flesh sensd-
tion come over them as they see you
approach?
It makes all the difference in the,
world to you and to those whom youj
influence what kind of'an expression'
you wear.-Orison Swett Marden in:
Success Magazine.

The Shamrock.
In Ireland only one shamrock is
known. It is an indigenous species of
clover which trails along the ground.
among the grass in meadows. The tre-
fold leaves are not more than one-
Sfourth the size-of- .e"t- -.
usually seen in America and are pure
green in color, without any of -the
brown shading of white and pink clo-
vers. The creeping stem is hard and
fibrous and difficult to dislodge from
the earth. On St. Patridk's day thU
true shamrock has to be searched out
among the grass, for, though compara-
tively plentiful at that season, it
grows close to the ground. Later it
bears a tiny "white crown" blossom.
The information that shamrakh Is the
Arabic word for trefold may be of
service to those interested in the origin
of the Irish race.

A Stickler For Promptness.
A certain merchant in Boston is
noted for being a stickler in the matter
of promptness to the extent that he has
been known to walk out of church, be-
cause the services did not begin
promptly and to leave his sister alone
in a strange city because she was four
minutes late in keeping an appoint-
ment. Not long ago he overheard a
forceful exposition of his peculiarity.
He had walked out to his stable and
was about to go in when he heard the
new groom within say to the coach-
man, "Is it true, Dolan, that the boss
is cracked about doing things on time
:umd g.e Inuto a fit whin anybody is
late?"
"Thrue? Thrue?" cried Dolan. "Let
me tell you, hyan, how thrue it 1i. If
the boss had promised to mate himself
at iliven o'clock and was late he'd find
himself gone whin he got there. That'*
0ow thrue it is!"
