The vulture is seen at its best when
a dead tiger, brought into camp to be
skinned, is exposed in the open. Over-
head is a cloudless sky, and not a bird
to be seen in that great void by the hu-
man eye. The tiger's body Is thrown
from the pad to the ground, and before
the skin has been removed there above

Boiled Alive.
In English statutes of the stxteetltn'
century the punishment set down for
the crime of murdering by poison was
boiling alive, and a girl was actually
executed in that ghastly fashion. In
t538 Father Stone of Canterbury suf-
fered the same death. A curious ac'
count is in existence which gives the"
amount paid "for two men who set the'
kettle and parboiled him" and "to the
women that scoured the kettle." The
sentence was not always carried out
,vith so much ferocity, for culprits were

Mary was naillug, so It was natural
Joe should wait for it by Mary's beuch
and talk while he waited.
The other girls were not slow to co-
tlee, and there were many sly little
darts aimed at Joe in his absence.
Mary soon learned that his besetting
oin was drink. The conviviality of the
cup that cheers had no fascinations for
him. Hle abstained totally for months,
only to fall grievolisly when the innate
and agonizing thirst for liquor over-
came him. Then he drank hard and
long, suffering untold remorse after his
appetite had been satiated.
When bashful Joe, his acquaintance
with Mary a week old, asked if he
might call on the girl in her home, the
clear brown eyes met his gaze frankly.
"You may, Mr. Temple," she replied,
"but there Is one condition. If I smell
liquor on your breath, it's all off."
Poor Joe blushed. "And don't use
,*-loves to cover It up!" she added em-
ohatically. "That's so cheap a trick in

Every Wednesday and Sunday even-

home, for he was soon very much In
love. The family liked the big fellow
and made more of him than the friend-
ly but outwardly indifferent Mary. He
talked politics with fier father, helped
her mother wind endless skeins of yarn
ind eased her small brother over rough
acess in the "three r's."
Fortnightly Joe and his sweetheart
attended the dances of tfe Pastime
Pleasure club at Hibernia hall, the
teamster scrupulously sober and fairly
exuding pride and happiness, while
Mary's demureness was belled by the
sparkle of her eyes.

liquor fought with Joe's love, but was

terly. "No t i Z-nr-es \ whether I'm ou
the afterr wagon or not. That girl's
just been baiting me on; she doesn't
care for me"--and he knew the thought
Was uutrue while he formulated It.
"I know what I'll do.. I'll go down to
Joe Byers' and get sloughed. No use
trying to do the rihht thing; nothing in
it. M'm. but a drink will taste good!"
it occurred to him that a drink would
never taste as it did before he met
Mary, though. -
Joe's ugly reflections kept his eye4'off
his path, and a jolt to his shoulder
brought him up standing. He had
walked under allt iron stairway which
ascended to the second story of a
quaint little brick store, an obstruction
which the stream of progress had not
washed away.
An arc light near by shone brightly
on the seamed and grizzled wall. Ab-
sentmindedly rubbing his shoulder, he
Was stepping back from beneath the
stairway when his eyes sensed some-
thing unusual on the wall, and he
stooped to examine It.
There, sheltered by the steps above
from the snow and the worst of the
frost, a little clump of grass, a bare
four spears, 'clung undauntedly. 'The
cold had withered the tips, but the
heart of the plant was vigorous. No
earth was visible; it flourished, appar-
ently, on bare brick and mortar. Tem-
ple peered at the grass, which stood
out In minutest detail beneath the
strong electric light, until a suspicious
policeman gruffly ordered him to move
.When Joe had walked half a dozen
blocks, pondering the' phenomenon, he
began to find a lesson in it for himself.
"Why," his thoughts ran, "that little
bunch of grass has got more grit than
I have! It's shy a thfnker to help it
out even. The Lord put that seed on
earth to grow. He didn't say, 'Ffind a
nice rich soil somewhere, grow if you
feel like it and quit when you got dis-
couraged.' No, sir. He Juat command'-
ed it to be what it's madq to be, and,
by thunder, that seed didn't ask any
questions I
"And here I am," he went on In
Wholesome self scorn,. "a great big
hulking gqy with brains--leastw&a.t
I'm supposed to have 'em-laying down
like a bound pup when things don't go
to suit me. Mary, little sweetheart,
that bunch o' grass was a missionary
set to growing out of a brick wall juast
to show me what a chump I am. Well,
I've found out In time. No booze for;
me! And if yoq say six years Instead:
of six months I'll wait for yo'u and be
proud to do It." With a light heart he
turned homeward.
Joe met a diminutive messenger boy
at his own front gate. "Yer name
Teaomle?" Queried the youngster. "Th st

Balm is the champion of all liniments.
''The past year 1 was troubled a great deal
with rbeumuntism in my shoulder. After
trying several cures the storekeeper here
recommended this remedy and it com-
pletely cured me." There is no use of any
one suffering from that painful ailment
when this liniment can be obtained for a
small sum. One application gives prompt
relief and its continuedd use for a short
lime will produce a permanent cure. For

iuhrkli. near Basel. It was kiNown as
the gigantic meteorological Eolian
harp. It was 320 feet in lenglih and
was erected inthe garden of its invent-
or in 1787. .This harp; consisted of fif-
teen iron wirts, 820 feet in length,
stretched between two poles. The wires
were from two to three inches apart,
the largest beiug one-sixth of an inch '
in thickness and the smallest one-
twelfth of an inch. They were placed
in the direction of north and south and
Inclined in such a manner as to form
an angle of from -twenty to thirty .de-
gree's with the horizon, being stretched
by means of rollers properly- disposed
for the purpose. Whenever the weath-
er changed the wires soiumded with
such loudness that it was impossible to
go on with a concert in the house. The
sound sometimes represented the hiss-
ing noise of water in rapid ebullition,
sometimes that of a harmonlcon and
sometimes that of distant chimna or an

Hobbes and Geometry.
Hobbes was not yet fifteen when be
wont to Oxford. He did not much
care for logic, yet he learned it and
thought himself a good disputant.
There is no reason to think he learned
anything else at Oxford save a strong
dislike ot aticndemic institutions and
methods. He turned( from the official
studies to amuse himself with geogra-
Ihy and voyages. As to mathematics,
there was no official recognition of
them at all while Hobbes was at the
In!vers:ty, so there Is nothing Improb-
uble in the statement that Hobbes had
never opened a capy of Euclid until be
was near thiddle age. The story is best
i.old in Aubrey's own words:
,e was forty years old when he
:ook-d on geometry, which happened
"tc.Lentally. Being in a gentleman's
flbrary, 'Euclid's Elements' lay open.
:-ad ft wavi' the fo'.ry-svecnth propos>i
:ion. Lib. I. sl he read the prop'osi-
4ion. ;By Gf orge.' says he, 'this is lim-
,lossibl)!' So he read the deronstra-
tion of it, which referred him back tc
other; which bi o also read, 'et sicdein-
cpsj;' that at last he was demroistra-
.ilveiy convinced of that truth. This
,madehim in love with geomnitry.Y

The Gap In the Levan Hock.
On the Way froim Land's End, the ex-
treme western point of 1England to the
Logan rock, just In from the cliff, aftei
you have passed Tol-Pedri and immedi-
ately before the road drops to Porth-
gwarra, there is a little valley, a big
grassy nook, with one cottage, a rec-
tory and a church. This is the parish
church of St. Levan, a fisherman saint,
of whom there are many legends. His
path is still seen by the track of green-
er grdss that leads out to the rocks
named after him, where he fished the
traditional "chack-cheeld" chad. There
is his stone, too, in thuen hurchyard, one
of those ominous stones which in Corn-
wall are thought to be the dials of time
itself, chroniclers of the hour of the
last judgment. The Levant stone Is a
rock of granite, split in two, with grass
and ferns growing in the gap between
the two halves. The end of the world
will come, sayA the rhyme, when the
gap is wide enough for a pack horse
with panniers to pass through. "We
do nothing to hasten It," the rector said
to me reassuringly.--London Standard.

Cketght, bo, bi A. M. DaWtea Ogden

Nurse Humphreys was hardly what
would be termed popular. Tall, hand-
some, in a dark, cold type of beauty.
the was much admired, and the doctors
ll respected her clear, keen intelli-
gence and executive ability. But the
patients regarded her with evident
awe. No one urged her to come and sit
for a moment by his bedside.
Nurse Humphreys herself regarded
the patients as so many human ma-
chines to be tended and cared for.
It was her work to superintend the do-
ing of this. What more could be re-
quired ot her? And then one day a
tender, helpless little morsel of a child
was carried into the ward, and Miss
Humphreys experienced a strange sen-
sation. The blue eyes looked appeal-
Ingly into hers; the thin little arms
were extended. "Molly lonesome,"
murmured a baby voice. And Miss,
Humphreys, rather shamefacedly, bent
and kissed the tiny face.
From that day a new life began for
the nurse. All the pent up tendernesS
of years, all the starved affection of
the woman's heart, sternly repressed
for so long, were unstintedly lavished
Upon the child. It was a bad case.
Miss Humphreys flung herself with
tireless energy into the battle with
death. Molly could not die; she must
not die. And love won. The fatal crisis
was passecdr the little life began to
tighten Its hold on existence. Miss
Humphreys rejoiced until one day
came a sudden, most unwelcome
thought. Molly was out ofi danger:
Molly was growing well; Molly would
soon leave the hospital and go home.
Miss Humphreys started and tried to
banish the thought. But it-would not
go. It pursued her, obsessed her, be-
came a nightmare.
Outside the big ward was a small
room where Miss Humphreys some-
times sat. Late one afternoon she
was there, still haunted by the thought
of Molly's departure. It seemed ter-
ribly near. How could she let Molly
go back to that aunt-that narrow
faced, hard eyed woman-from whom
the child palpably shrank upon the oc-
casions of her rare visits? Was she
unkind to the little thing? Miss Hum-
phreys wondered.
A sudden sense of discouragement
possessed the nurse. Molly was nearly
convalescent, yet to the doctor Miss
Humphrey had dilated at length upon
unfavorable symptoms, Inherent weak-
nesses, and this morning.- this very
morning, she had deliberately altered
the temperature' line on- the patient's
chart. That was unpardonable.. She
had ,fancied that the doctor had looked
at "er rather oddly as he returned the
chart. Did he suspect anything? Must
she let "her go-this child with Tom's
name and with Tom's own blue eyes?
Where had Molly found thbemp The
aunt, a dry, uncommnilcative person ,
. only vald' that the child's motier was
ad. -Molly babbled of a daddy al-
most always from bome. The Idea had
onee flashed across Miss Humphreys'
mind that Tom himself might be this
daddy," but she had dismissed the sug-
gestion as too improbable. There were
doubtless thousands of Brenuans.
It brought the man to her mind, how-
ever. Tom! Where could he be? He
had loved her once. Why had she let
him go? Miss Kumphreys looked about
the plain little room, thought of the
ward beyond. She had sent Tom away,
had left her home, come to New York
and entered the training school,
worked, denied herself, suffered, in-
spirel, sustained by no ignoble am-*
Well, she had succeeded. She had
achieved her goal. Was she not head
nurse in this busy hospital ward?
Again her eyes traveled around the
dreary little room. Was this then
what her ambition meant, a solitary
woman growing old alone? Miss
Humphreys, tired and depressed, knew
that she was morbid; sought to shake
it off, but the feeling was too strong
for her. The reaction from the years
of effort had set in, and all at once a
wave of heartsickness seemed to sub-

drops still clinging io her long blact
lashes. She lifted her h d.
"So you have come 'o take Molly
away," she said simply. The man start,
ed, He bad quite forgotten the child.
"Why-she cannot stay here-the doc-
tor says that she is well," he itam-
mered confusedly. "He said"--
"Yes, I know," responded Miss Hum-
phreys. "She is quite well." She
was staring straight ahead, her dark
eyes filled with a blank, unseeing look.
He would go away again. Molly would
go away. What was there left for
her? The doctor knew what she had
done. She might have to leave the
hospital. But she did not care about
that. Brennan took a step forward.
"Margaret," he cried; "oh, Margaret,
why did you send me from you?"
There was a whole lifetime of pain
and yearning In the man's voice and
Miss Humoircys' heart gave a sudden
throb. He had hot entirely forgotten
her then. The image of that other
woman had not entirely obliterated her
"I-I don't know," she faltered, feel-
ing like a silly schoolgirl. Her usual
calm self possession was gone. The
doctors would not have recognized
their cool, capable nurse.
"You-dIon't-know?" echoed Bren-
nan. A sudden well known gleam
sprang to the blue eyes. "You-don't--
know," he repeated. "Then-might
there be a chance tor me after all?"
he asked squarely. Miss Humphreys,
robbing, had sunk into a chair. The
man bent over and with soft fingers
reverently touched the shining hair.
"I-I loved my wife," he said loyal-
ly. "She was a dear, sweet soul. But
you were my first love and I could
never quite forget. You have saved
Molly for me," 'he added unsteadily,
"but she needs you still-we both need
you. Won't you come and make us
happy, sweetheart?" a sudden inten-
sity deepenidn-g the strong voice.
"Won't you, dear?"
And Mis 3 Humphreys whispered



When Jim Lee, the village carpenter
and a widower, died, people felt sorry
for his daughter Molly and wondered
how she would get along. They did
more, for a wonder. A number of them
so interested themselves that she was
made telephone operator at Sandsville
with a good weekly salary. She made
her home with a neighbor, and things
went on very well with her.
Molly Lee was a girl of twenty, and
if she hadn't married before her fa-
ther's death it was not because of the
lack of opportunity. Why she- didn't
was her own affair. Why she attended
strictly to business afterward and had
no beaux was also her own affair, but
the villagers winked and nodded to
each other and said it would come
around by and by.
At Stapleton, twenty-eight miles
away, James' Williams opened a store
about the time Mr. Lee died. He had
much telephoning to do in various di-
rections, and he called up Sandsville
at least once a day. When he heard
the new voice over the telephone he
liked the sound of it. The more. he
heard of it the better he liked it.

to himself, but he heard a giggle from

"Not yet. Say, I was down at Sands-

"I called at the telephone office."

Fieat Treaty of Portmeouth,.
The first treaty of Portsmouth. N. H.,
was signed July 11, 1718, the contract-

and the whites. The news of the treaty
of Utrecht, which ended Queen Anne's
wah, reached the city Oct. 29, 1712. The
Indians desired a treaty, and It was
formally signed on the above date.

F'or a year the bachelor hugged his
romance to his soul; then he made up
his mind to look for something more
material. He put on his Sunday suit
one day and went down to Sandsville.
Any one on the street would have told
him that Miss Molly Lee was in charge
of the telephone office and would prob-
rbly have added that she was the best
looking girl in town, but he asked no
questions, not even where the office
was. Ite Atrolled around until he found
It for bhimsolf, and he kept saying as
be strolled:
"Jimmy Williams, you are making an
idiot of yourself. Of course Girly is
an old maid and homely as a hedge
fence, and you will get snapped up in
great shape for your cheek. Better go
back and keep your illusion."
But he entered the telephone office in-
stead, and the first glance at the wo-
man behind the desk sent his heart
down into his boots. Just as he had
'feared, she was an old maid. She wAtd
an old maid who was having trou)b'e
with a soft corn that day, and a man
who stuttered had just left the office
after vainly seeking to send a message,
and she did not like the way the man

"Well?" hb blurted out as he stood
there looking around in a helpless way.
"Name is Williams of Stapleton," ho
"Well, what of that?"
"I-I have done considerable tele-
phoning to this office during the past
"And have you got any complaints
to make?"
"Then what?"
"I thought- That Is, 1-I"'-
"Have you been drinking, sir?" de
handed the old maid in a voice full of
carpet tacks and pounded glass.
"N-n-n-n-o!" stuttered Mr. Williams
after a great effort.
"Then you are going to have paresis
and had best consult a doctor!"
Mr. Williams withdrew and went
over and sat down in the shade of the
grocery steps. A bobtailed dog came
along and tried to make friends with
him, but he would not respond. One of
the hogs sauntering about the village
streets approached and grunted amia-
bly, but was kicked at in response.
The groceryman came out and, rub-
bing his hands together, observed that
he had just laid in a new stock of
crackers and herring, but the bachelor
never even thanked him for calling his
attention to the fact.
By and by, when the cold chill of
disappointment had passed away, he
got up and walked to the depot and
took the train for home. His romance
had been shattered and buried, and he
felt small and mean over it. There was
only one thing left to wonder ovet'.
.How on earth could that old maid have
disguised her voice ss she had when
talking with him? He thought over
the matter for two or three days and
then dismissed it.
During the next two weeks the mer-
chant had considerable telephoning to
do, but nor4 of it was n the direction
rof Sandsvile. Not once was that office-
called up, Ilnd there was a saving of
at least $3 on tolls. Then there came a
day thatthe office had to be called
up, and as +he bachelor took down the
trumpet he made up his mind that if it
was possible to do so he would give-
that old maid a rap.
"Yes, this is Sandsville," came the
answer in a voice that made him jump.
It was the' clear, sweet voice he had
been accustomed to.
"I want"- he began and then

He Let It Drop.
After the battle of Sharpsburg Gen-
eral Jackson, happening to ride in the
rear of Early's division, found the men
scattered for miles along the road,
some executing dance steps, some cry-
ing, others singing gay songs or psahn
tunes. Early had tried to reduce the
ranks to their usual orderly condition,
but had not succeeded. Finally an or-
derly rode up and handed him a dis
patch from General Jackson:
Headquarters, Left Wing.
Sir-General Jackson desires to know
* why he saw so many stragglers in rear of
your division today.
After reading this communication the
grim old soldier got a piece of paper
and wrote the following reply:

stragglers today It that he rode in rear
