6Ae GOLDEN E

EGG

i1y BM. J. PhillIps

Copyright, 1906, by Beatrix Reade


When Buckley asked the sanction of
his employer, Professor Rudolph Kin-
fein, to the marriage of that young
man and Kinfein's niece, 'Donna, he ex-
pected that there would be extraordi-
nary conditions attached to Kinfein's
approval. Kinfein was a wealthy and
eccentric scientist, metallurgist and
,physician, who dabbled in various
strange matters for his amusement.
Buckley, his assistant, had grown in
time to understand the old man's oddi-
ties and to have a profound respect for
the intellect which had already made
several valuable scientific discoveries.
Kinfein smiled benevolently and
combed his long white beard with his
fingers when the younger man spoke.
"Well, John," he began, "Donna is
twenty-two, and of course she will
marry some time. I suppose you are no
worse than other men. Now, if I im-
pose a task upon you before \1 give my
consent you will agree to perform it?"
"If I can," replied Buckley cau-
tiously.
The old gentleman chuckled. "It
won't be very hard, John." From a
private compartment beneath the lab-
oratory shelf he drew out a box and
handed it to lBuckley. '"Open It," he
said.
John did so and revealed ap. oval
yellow object nearly the size of a foot-
ball and practically of. the same shape.
It seemed to be of metal.
"Now, John, there's-your golden egg,"
w? nt of fthe scientist. "I fixed it up for
you in my leizure moments. If you
open it inside-of.a month you get Don-
na and a wedding present too. If not,
you'll have to wait awhile.
"What tools may I use in opening
it?"
"That's the point, John. You may
use your own two good hands and any
Instrument which does not weigh over
fifty grains."
"Fifty grains!" repeated John,
amazed. "Why, that's less than a
quarter of an ounce."
"Exactly."
John stared first at the egg and then
at the scientist. "But, professor," he
expostulated, "an instrument weighing
fifty grains will be practically useless.
Why, the blade of a small penknife
weighs that much. A thin latchkey
weighs more."
"But an instrument much less In
weight will open that egg."
John looked dubious. "But suppos-
ing I use something which weighs
more?""
"You wouldn't do it, John, if you
agreed not to," responded the profes-
sor comfortably, "and I'd catch you at
it if you did."
John was young, in love, and ener-
getic. His three years' work in the
various hobbies which the scientist af-
fected had given him an unusual tech-
*aical education, great confidence "in
himself, and a certain delicate manual
dexterity\ which almost surpassed that
of his employer, clever as the older
man was. It was very natural that he
should accept the challenge and bear
:away the egg.
He found Miss Donna in the parlor
and explained the situation. It is hard-
ly germane to mention that when the
girl placed her elbows on the table and
settled her chin in her pink palms to
listen she looked distressingly pretty-
so pretty, in fact, that John was com-
pelled to interrupt his' narrative while
he kissed her.
When he had finished his account of
the conditions, she rose. "You are to
go right to your room, John," she com-
manded, "and open that egg. I'm dy-
;ng to sqe what's In It. No; you can't
stay here with me and work on it; I
would disturb you." With the wari-
ness of long experience she dodged
around the table at this moment, an-
ticipating by the fraction of a second a
lunge on the part of John. From a
place of safety behind a chair, she
pointed to the door. "Avaunt! And
tell me tomorrow morning what you
found." John reluctantly gave up a
chase which promised to be fruitless,
and obeyed.
Settled in the easy chair in his own
rpom, he paid the professor the com-
pliment of examining the egg very
carefully .before beginning operations.
He went over it with his fingers, but
could feel no joints beneath the yel-
low paint which covered the metal.
There was no depression on the sur-


alce. It was his theory that a hidden
-pring, would open the sphere, and he
-pent the balance of the evening In
searching for it. At midnight the
secret was still undiscovered, and he
gave it up for the time being.
* Donna was inclined to poke fun at
Lis failure the next morning. As the
chuckling professor readily allowed"
her to try her hand, she spent an hour
and broke two hairpins in an equally
fruitless effort.
The egg was rather light than other-
wise for its size, but John felt cer-
tain that machinery of some descrip-
tion, hidden within it, controlled the
situation. By shaking It persistently
lie was finally rewarded by the sound
of a very faint clicking. That even-
Ing he made a sort of cat's cradle of
string and placed the egg therein.
With the contrivance he was able to
whirl the egg over and over, in this
way hoping to tart the machinery.
Occasionally he reversed the motion,
but he tired' hitrms with the ponot-
onous labor to no purpose.
Next he essayed to saw his way
through the metal. Ile secured a
burglar's saw of the finest steel, but
was compelled to dispense with the
handle, as it brought the weight of
the little instrument up to ueatly 100
grains.
Intermittent labor for the next three
evenings with the saw, a bit of cloth
serving as a handle, resulted in some
badly blistered fingers and the scratch-
ing of tIe paint in several places.
That was all, if the fact that the egg
was proved to be steel as fine and hard
as the saw is excepted. In desperation
Buckley attempted to crush the ob-
stinate oval between his hands and
failed again.
"I've made up my mind to get the
paint off," he announced to Donna.
"'Then I can tell where we're at."
"We're at sea," she replied dolefully,
tenderly kissing one of the blistered
fingers.
Buckley secretly agreed with her, but
his pride had been aroused by repeated
failures and the whole souled chuckling
of the professor, whose sides seemed to
'ie shaking constantly with merriment
,vor his assistant's predicament. He
vould open the egg nowv or die.
The young man took his penknife
,part, sharpened the lightest blade to
i razor edge and attacked the paint.
Although it clung exasperatingly, in
time lie hadt cleared it from the sur-
face. This revealed the presence of
thousandss of little holes in the metal,
each closed by a minute fleck of the
n'ont which the blade would not dis-
lodge.
It was well into the fourth week
t-hen this was done. "Just look- at
'hose.confounded needle holes!" he ex>
laiimed in disgust.
Under the stress' of a brilliant inspi-
ration- Donna jumped up and clapped
!ter hands delightedly. "That's it, John
-a needle!"
One was brought, and John set him-
-elf to the task of thrusting it care-
fully as far as it would go into each of
the little holes. This removed the fleck
of paint, and as the absence of paint
showed that a hole had be&n tested no
time -was lost in subsequent explora-
tions.
"Foxy old gentleman, your uncle,"
smiled John. "but he overlooked, that
)point. If he'd thought about it, I know
he'd fixed it to keep the paint out of
these wretched ho!es."
It was the evening of the last day of
the a:lotted month that the busy nee-
dle, penetrating farther than usual,
produced the hoped for result. There
was a whir of clockwork, and a heavy
'pring, the pressure upon it suddenly
removed, thrust itself through the side
of the egg.
John fished a metal cylinder from the
broken shell, opened it and, with his
arm around Donna's neck, read the pa-
per which it contained. It was a check
for $5,000 signed by Pr6fessor Kinfetn
and payable to "Mr. and Mrs. John
Buckley."

UNCLE

; ABRAHAM'S

LEGACY
4 2By A. A. Patrick

SCopyright, 1906, by P. C. 1Stment

Although in past years Silas Sragg
and his family had been the so re-
cipients of many benefactions from
Uncle Abraham, as the burden of old
age began to heap itself upon him and
his earning powers became proportion-


ately less and less the aforesaid family
began to ponder over the problem of
getting rid of the decrepit old gentle-
man a-gainst the time when his feeble-
ness should make him absolutely de-
pendent.
Uncle Abe, as he was called, had
served as a Confederate soldier in the
civil war. When Lee surrendered at
Appomattox he, with thousands of oth-
er soldiers, trudged back to the prices
they had left four years previously, but
time and war had wrought amazing
changes everywhere. The few blood
relations that Uncle Abe possessed
were all gone. Some had died in bat-
tle, and those who remained had mov-
ed. to other parts. After looking about
the village he finally made arrange-
ments for board and lodging at the
Bragg homestead and, with a small
square box, the only thing he carried,
domiciled himself at that place.
During the first years Uncle Abe
found his environments to b.congenial,
and his sojourn, as already stated,
proved to be exceedingly profitable to
Silas Bragg, who, having won the con-
fidence and gratitude of the ex-soldier,
came into possession of property of
considerable value.
Consequently it was a great shock to
Uncle Abe when he learned that It was


the purpose of the Braggs to cast him
out now that they held the title to all
his property. It had been his desire to
live out his day. at 1b`s pl:,n. e hld'
received intimations of their designs
through the increase: in':tutn.r.-' v '
Mrs. Bragg and the -. :
other members of the house lU. For
days and weeks afterwv..rd 'e moped
about the little village f:i a weary and'
dejected manner. The people would
gaze after him when he passed and re-
mark that Uncle Abe was going down
mighty fast.
This state of affairs continued for
nearly a month, then it was noticed
that the veteran seemed to hale taken
a new hold on life. He moved about
with an agility that belied his years;
he laughed and joked with A z;est that
was surprising, and, abov% all, there
lurked in his eyes a olisachievous
twinkle and glitter that tt, loungers
at the village store had 4qyer taken
note of before. However'uch the
wonder wasi no solution was ever
reached by them.
The real cause of this gayety on the
part of Uncle Abe lay In the fact that
certain things had been happening at
the Braggs'. Only a feiw evenings be-
fore, Mr. Silas Bragg, on arriving
home in a rather tottery state, strongly
admonished Mrs. Bragg because she
apparently had not acted according to
his instructions.
"Where's old gray coat?" he queried.
"Is he gone yet? No? Didn't I say
bounce him. What d'ye mean? Goin'
to keep him here to eat a feller out o'
house and home? Didn't I tell ye to
make it hot for 'im? I'm a honest
man, I am, an' I don't want to be hard
on nobody, but he's done eat up the
wuth of everything I got out o' him an'
I ain't goin' to have 'im no longer.
Now, ye get rid of 'im; pester the life
out o' him; spill hot coffee oun 'im.
D'ye hear me? I say, get rid of 'im."
Having delivered himself of these
weighty remarks, Mr. Bragg settled
comfortably down in a chair and dozed
off into a deep slumber.
On the following morning Uncle
Abe did not appear at the breakfast
table as he was usually wont to do.
Mr. Bragg, having eaten his breakfast,
again commanded Mrs. Bragg to
"make it hot for 'im," and departed.
An hour passed. Still Uncle Abe did
not appear.
"I'll show 'im," piped the matron in
a 'shrill voice. "I'll learn 'im to lie
abed. Martha Ann, go get that syringe
*in' a pan o' cold water; an' give it to
im through the keyhole." Before this
order could 'be executed, however, a
hougnht of such a pleasing nature en-
.red the mind of Mrs. Bragg that it
almostt made her gasp for breath.
"Maybe the old codger's dead," she
,Jaculated. "Run, Nancy, an' see," she
,-alled out.
Nancy. na commanded, .stopk up a
positionn in front otoUncle Abe's room.
peering cautiously through the Keybole.
What she saw made her fall over back-
ward and scramble by the hall toward
the kitchen. At sight of such action
on the part of Nancy, Mrs. Bragg could
hardly restrain herself from shoutifhg.
She felt certain that Uncle Abe had
left this earthly sphere for other parts.
This opinion was soon dispelled, for
when the girl had reached the kitchen
and had sufficiently recovered to make
explanations she told of what she had
seen in something after the following
manner:
"Oh, ma! Oh, ma! He had his box
open on the bed, an' it's jest plum full
o' greenbacker bills!"
In a little time after this occurrence
Uncle Abe came out of his room. Mrs.
Bragg, considering the new light on
the situation, made haste to prepare a
warm and tasteful meal for him. He
seemed to be in excellent spirits. He
ite heartily of the e, and th and then
'rushed back his chair and made the
followingg astounding remarks:
"Mrs. Bragg," he said, "I have just
seen doing a little thinking. I am get-
ing old. At the best I can't live many
ears. and I don't want to be moving
;bout. Now, I'll tell" you what I am
-oing to do. I'm going to stay with
you and Silas what few days I have
teft. When I'm gone there's a little/
square box in my room which you can
have. I'm not going to tell you what's
in it, but I'll say this: I think that
*vhat's in the box ought to be worth a
-ood many thousand."'
"Uncle Abe," broke in Mrs. Bragg,
'you are the kindest and best man in
*"he world. Why, you have a home here
is long as you live. Whatever we
have you shall share it with us. You
are near aud dear to us, Uncle Abe.
and we don't think nothing' about
whether we'll get anything or not.


'Why, only this morning Silas was
Fpeakiing to me, sayin' we must tell
you this. Yes, indeed, Uncle Abe, you
needn't worry about a home."
That evening when Mr. Bragg re-
turned he looked at Was wife sternly.
"Well, has old"- Hle didn't finish.
"Sh-h-h!" interrupted Mrs. Bragg.
holding up a warnii'n; hand. Then she
went over and wvhispered in his ear.
Mr. Bragg apparently comprehended,
for In a few minutes'he called out:
"Nancy, go an' see if Uncle Abe
needs a fire in his room. D'ye hear
me? I say, go an' see if Uncle Abe
needs a fire, an' if he does build it.
Martha Ann, go sk Uncle Abe what
he'd like to have for supper."
After the second girl had been dis-
patched on an errand to Uncle Abe's
room Mr. Bra.gg turned to his wife and
said in a low tone:
"What ye want to do is to.treat 'im
right. Let 'inm have his way 'bout any-
thing. Give 'im everything that's good
to eat-pie an' such truck as that.
Don't want 'im goin' off from here wag-
gin' that box. Whew! How puch d'ye
reckon's in it?"
Thus the old soldier entered upon an
era of unbroken peace and quiet and
good living. His every whilAjwas hu-
mored. Hle was petted and waited on
continually. There was no length -to


which the Braggs~would not go to put
Uncle Abe at ease. They even fur-
nished him with small sums of money.
He told them that he had some money.
but did not wish to break a-bill. See-
ing that they would get all his bills in
time to come they were not reluctant
to humfior him in this, as also they did
in many other things. Indeed if any-
thing were refused Uncle Abe he would
begin to make preparations which, the
startled Bragg family thought, were
signs that he meant to remove himself
and the Nquare box to some other place.
This would nevet do, of course, and
after a sound rating from Silas they
would again be whipped into the line
of obedience and homage to the ex-
soldier.
In the course of time, as was natural,
Uncle Abe died, and Mr. Bragg, in a
last splendid burst of generosity, gave
him a fitting burial. When the sad
rites were over Mr. Bragg hastened to
return home.
Followed by Mrs. Bragg and Nancy
Bragg and Martha Ann Bragg, he un-
locked a certain room, unlocked a cer-
tain trunk and unlocked a certain box,
and-a cry of joy died half uttered in
his throat. He got upon his feet and
kicked the cat and dog into the yard,
then oriwf-il till the very walls of the
building trembled. Neighbors heard
the shrill voice of Mrs. Bragg and the
deep curses of Silas and wondered
what the trouble could be.
The box was full of Confederate bills.
On top of them lay a little note, which
read :
"I think-I always did think-this
money ought to be worth a good many
thousand dollars, but it is not."



Colonel'Mugggs

!And Hir i
A dA onald


SCjopyright, 1900, by K. A. Whitehacd

Colonel Muggs, U. S. A., was pri-
marily to blame for his capture by
(Grecian brigands. lIe was pompous
and portly. He wrote his name in big
letters on hotel registers and talked
about his mines and ranches. When he
reached Corinth he strutted a little
more than usual. IHe found there an
English lord, and, wanting to show
him that he wasn't the only prominent
peltsonage about, he cut a swath as
wide as he could. Unknown to him
there was an article in a Gieek paper
about him. He was said to be worth
;50,000,000 and piling up millions more,
and that he talked of buying up all the
ruins in Greece and shipping them to
New York,as a free gift to the city. -
Your true Greek brigand takes the
daily newspaper and pays special at-
tention to the society column. It was
on account of that newspaperarticle
that Colonel Muggs was taken in. iHe
hired a carriage and driver and guide
and, two flunkies and drove out into
the country from Corinth to "do" some
interesting ruins, but before he was
half finished sight seeing he found that
the brigands had "done" him.
The colonel had' made his arrange-
ments overnight, and this hid given
his guide time to send word to the
gang. There were five of them, and
every man knew his business. They
came upon the colonel while he was
eating his lunch on a mass of masonry
many thousand years old. It was so
old that the brigands should have felt
awed, but they didn't.
As soon as they had made the colonel
understand that he was at their mercy
they turned to and ate up the rest of
his luncheon and wanted to punch his
head bcnause he hadn't left more.
When they ha'l finished eating and
Irinkug they set out for the moun-

The colonel exhibited a reluctance to
o with them, but they caused a
*haniKe of' heart by pricking him with
he points of their knives. One of
!emn wouldd upeak E.n'lish fairly well,
u.d Ie explained that, while It was
he inteulion to treat tlhe (i..)tive with
;ue eo'sider;'tion until he had yielded
p the mo', :y, they couldn't permit
inythaig )o'dering on the frolicsome
n his conduct.
"Say, now, but who do you fellers
;ike me for?" demanded the American,
ts he was being hustled along.
"We have made no mistake," was the
reply. "You are the man worth $50,-
)00,000."
"Fifty million nothings! Where did
you get hold of any such rot?"
"In tfe newspapers. You shall see


then when we get to camp."
"Well, you are a lot of fools. I have
been swelling around some, and have
perhaps given a false impression, but
it's all being done on cheek. I'll tell
you straight that I'm from Meriden,
Conn., U. S. A. I'm no colonel, though
I hate to admit it to a blamed gang of
robbers. I'm simply Joseph J. Muggs,
traveling salesman for a clock fac-
tory. I am over here to Introduce
eight day clocks, and I have hardly
money enough to pay my hotel bill and
get out of town. If you've got hold of
me thinking to raise a stake, you are
going to get left."
"We shall see," replied the leader,
while the smile on his face showed
that he thought the colonel was trying
to work off old stock on him.
After a five hour tramp they reached
headquarters In the hill. Headquarters
was a dilapidated -hut and a campfire
in a lonely spot. Some black bread
and roasted goat's flesh constituted
supper, and later on the brigands sat
In a circle around their captive, and
the leader said:
"You shall have the freedom of the
camp as long as you are with us, but
some one will have an eye on you all
the time. The first move you make to
. escape will bring, a bullet. In the


mLorning you may wruie i 1,l,1r lo

"What in the devil shn-l I write to

onol, who was tired annd disgusted.
"That he shall send us aI suni equal
to what you would call $.500,0(" In

"Jupiter Jewkins, but are you crat:y!
1iave the whole five of you just escap-i
. ed from some lainatic asylum? If you
wnait any further chat with me tonight,
then don't talk through the top of your
hat.'"
"You will write in the morning,," said
the leader, while the others muttered
under their breath.
"But I have no banker In Corinth."
"Then to the American consul. He
will help you to get the ransonm money
i, rom America. He will use the cable,
andl in three days it will be here and
you will be free."
"Say. old mnan," remarked the colonel
nfter a hearty laugh, "this will be one
on me wiheu I get back to Meriden.

there are millions in the clock business.

"'The papers be hanged! If you run

p;'r-s say you'll die in the poorhouse."
"-1:t you ,ro'e to buy up all the ruins
of our tco;-ry." persisted the leader.
"'es. \\ .u liens climb trees. I
-ccldn'tt buy one old broken column.
.Just nmike up your mind that you've
ro-t olh1l of the wrong man. It's that
English lord you want to lay hands on.
I've been putting on side, but it's all
froth."
The colonel was ordered into the. hut
;o pass the night, and the brigands
vent into caucus. They believed the
ineiric'an to be lying. Once they had
xptur.'d a wealthy Frenchmlan who
ad lied them oiut of a big ransom, and
hey didn't neau to be caught again.
When morning came there was an-
Ather slim breakfast. Then the leader
.aid:
"'If you wish to be free in two days,
then write to your bank in Corin"
"But I told you I had none," repli
Cte colonel.
"Then to your country's consul."
"Ile could be ,t" no use whatever."
"Listen to ,me," said the mtan as his
comrades fingered their knives menac-
ingly. "We give you one week In
which to raise the ransom. ,After that
you are a dead man. Don't'trifle with
us. Ycu (annot dicycve us, and' you
cannot hope for' a rescne." ..,
"Well, all I've got to say is thant,4f

In two weeks. I've told you the truth.
and if you are too .thWek Pcliaed to ab-
.sorb it it's your misfortune."
The brigands were in no hurry. Nel-
ther were they in any danger of being
overhauled. They divided their ransom
money with lihe It, and the It saw thLIt
they were not interfered with.
Nothing further was said to the colo-
nel for two days. Ire naV'de himself
believe that he was out on a huckleber-
ry excursion and trio'i to enjoy it. On,
the tlihrd day he noticed that the bri-
g-ndls began to exhibit sitgs of ipmpa-
tienr-e and feel lie edges of their
knives. On the morning of the fifth
writing materials w,,re placed beforer
him, and the leader said:
"P-rhaps you will write to your
banker tod' 1y'?"
"With the grevaest of pleasure, if
you will only tell me who he is."
"Oh, very well. There are two days
left to yon."
Colonel Muggs hadn't been taking
things as easy as appeared. Hle was in
a hole and couldn't see his way out.
iTe couldn't raise $200 just then to save
hMs life, and hlie realized that he had put
himself into a fa'se position and that
the brigands would h,1hll him to It. For
four days lie hid hlad an eye out for
any chance to make a break, but he
had been under strict watch.
Soon after noon on that fifth day a
big thunder cloud came sweeping up
from the south and brought a torrent
of rain and terrific thunder and light-
ning. Every one crowded into the hut
for shelter, and the brigands were curs-
ing and praying alternately when
something occurred big enough to make
a sensation in America for a few min-
utes. What it was the colonel didn't
know until half an hour later, when he
woke up. Then he found himself and
t]e brigands lying in the midst of the
ruins of the old hut. llIs fellow lodgers
seemed very quiet, and he decided not


to disturb them. He gathered up their
knives and carbines,-and, retaining one
of the latter, lie chucked the rest Into
a ravine and then set out for Corinth.
If the brigands woke up after he de-
parted they did not pursue.
"A-h-b, colonel, but my heart was
rent with sorrow when I heard of your
capture!" exclaimed the landlord at
Corinth as the colonel walked, in on
him.
"Well, I dunno," was the reply.
"You've got to get up pretty early to
beat a Yankee and an eight day clock
combined."

Some Words Beginning With f.
Most persons aspirate the Initial let-
ter of "humble" nowadays and write
"a humble" just as they write "a hum-
bug" or "a humming bird."' But there
are very many who would not nafural-
ly soudd an h in "humble," or In
"herb," "hospital," "homage," or even
"humor." Before the nineteenth cen-
tury nobody did, though It is clear that
the aspirate had become regular by
"David Copperfield's" time, from the
fact that Dickens harps on -Uriah
HIeap's "'umble." The insistence on
the h Is comparatively modern; me-
diaeval men not only said "abit" for
"habit," but wrote it so and the Bible
has "an Hebrew."

Where Glovea Are Grown.
The raising of kids for their skins Is
a leading industry among the French
mountaineers, who obtain no small
part of their subsistence from this
source. Softness, delicacy of texture
and freedom from blemish are princi-
pal factors in the value of kid skins,
and to secure these essentials great
pains are taken. As soon as the young
animal begins to eat grass the value of
the skin declines, for with a grass liet
its skin immediately begins to grow
coi'rser and harder in texture, and its
chief merit vanishes. It ii, therefore,'
kept closely penned, tot only to pre-
vent it from eating brass; but also to
secure its skin from accidental Injury


from scratches or brushes, which Im-
pair its value. When the kids have
reached a certain age at which the
skins are in the best condition for the
use of the glover they are killed, and
the hides are sold to traveling hawk-
ers, through whom they reach the
great centers of the tanning industry
at Annonay, Millau, PAris and Greno-
ble.

Unhealthy Kidneys Make Impure Blood.
All the blood in your body passes through
your kidneys once every three minutes.

blood purifiers, they fi'

'their work.
Pains, aches and rheu-
matism come from ex-
cesss of uric acid in the
blood, due to neglected
kidney trouble.
Kidney trouble causes quick or unsteady
heart beats, and makes one feel as though
they had heart trouble, because the heart is
over-working in pumping thick, kidney-
poisoned blocd through veins and arteries.
It us-d to be considered that only urinary
'roubles were to be traced to the kidneys,
ut nouw modern science proves that nearly
l11 constitutional diseases have their begin-
ring in kidney trouble.
If you are sick you can make no mistake

A Word With a Strange History.
"Treacle," or molasses, is a word
with an interesting history. The earli-
est "treacle" was an antidote against
the viper's bite and probably was made
of viper's flesh Itself. It is a word
with a strange history, descending
from the Greek "flther," a wild beast.
whence came the adjective "theriakos,"
pertaining to a wild beast, which was
eventually specialized to mean serv-
ing as an antidote against a wild
beast's bite. In English "treacle" then
came to mean anything soothing or
comforting. Chaucer even speaks of
Christ as "treacle of- all harm." And,
as so many soothing remedies were
sirups, "treacle" at length meant sim-
ply sirups of various kinds.

Woman's Rights In Burma.
The Burmese woman must make an
excellent wife. A Singapore paper says
that her highest ambition is to main-

to supply him .with abundant funds for
cockfighting, bullock cart racing and
gambling. And many of the Burmese
women do big deals in timber, buying
up In advance the "paddy" crops of a

that requires big financlering.

A Flattering Testinionial.
A very eminent London surgeon, one
of the lights of the profession, one (lay
observed';a gentleman knocked down
by a runa way horse. lie went to his
aid a* d found lie had broken his leg.
It was only a simple fracture, but'the
,nlln was badly hurt.
The 'su:',gn used his umrbroll1 as a

Revenge.
An o!d man leaving work got Into a
car. He had not gone far before the
conductor asked him for twopence. The
man said it was a penny for the dis-
tance he was going. The conductor said
sharply to him, "Shut up and pay two-
pence." So he paid it.
The next morning the conductor re-
ceived a letter without a stamp, which
was surcharged as usual. When he
opened it he was surprised to see writ-
ten on paper, "Shut up and pay two-
pence."-London Tit-Bits.

AN OLD TIME OUTING.
One With Which Samuel Pepys Was
Very Much Pleased.
Samuel Pepys describes a seven-
toenth century Sunday outing, rind the
tale has a very modern ring to It.
"Lord's day," he writes, "up, and my
wife, a little before 4, to make us
ready." And here lie records his ain-
noyance that "she was so long about
It." P'epys then goes on: "She ready
and taking some bottles of wine and
beer and cold fowle with us." Coatch
and four horses from London to Ep-
tom, where they arrived at 8 o'clock.
drank the waters, ordered dinner, ate
it. "A gbod )inner and were merry."
After dinner, "the day being wonderful
hot, to sleep."
Then followed a coach to "take the
ayre," a shepherd with a little boy
reading the Bible "with the forced tone
that children do usually read that was
mighty pretty." The shepherd "did
bless God" for that boy. In Epsom
town a "poor woman with her milk
pail" anil "did drink our bellyfulls of
milk." Then to the coach, it being
about 7 at night.
So pleased was Pepys with his day's
results that he records his resolution,
"Never to keep a country house, but
to keep a coach and with my wife on a
Saturday to go sometimes for a day to
this place and then quit to another
place, and there is more variety and
as little charge and no trouble as there
is in a country house."

No Confederate Supreme Court.
"It Is a curious fact," said a New Or-
leans man, "that the Confederate con-
gress never created a supreme court.
The matter was before the Richmond
congress, but no statute was ever
passed authorizing such a tribunal.
"It was In a debate over this very
topic In the Confederate senate that the
personal encounter between Ben Hill
of Georgia and Williamn L. Yancey of,
Alabama occurred. The senate was in
executive session. The Georgia sena-
tor was speaking in favor of tjie crea-
tion of a court of last resort whose
powers should in a way be limited.
Yancey looked on this idea with dis-
favor, and during the course of Hill's
remarks he iuterrupted with the Insult-
ing statement that Hill had given ut-
terance to a lie. No sooner had he used
the offensive word than Ii, picking
up an inkstind, hurled It with great
force at his defami"r. The glass struck
Yancey over the eye, Inflicting a severe
wound, but doing him no permanent
injury, tiili.i h stories were long cur-
rent that the low finally caused hia
death."-Washington Post.

Washilnston's Birthday.
The first known celebration of Wash-
hIgton's birthday was on Feb. 11, 1784.-
The old style date was still adhered to.
Tbhl was during the lifelme of the
first president and completed his fifty
third year. The following is from the
Pennsylvania Packet, of Philadelphia
of the date of Tuesday, Feb. 17, 1784:
"New York, Friday, Feb. 13.-Wednes-
day last being the birthday of his ex-
cellency General Washington the same
Was celebrated by all the true friends
of American Independence and consti-
tutional liberty with that hilarify and
manly decorum ever attendant on the
sons of freedom. In the evening an
entertainment was given on board the
Bast India ship In thls. harbor to a
very brilliant and respectable company,
had a discharge of thirteen cannon was
fired on the Joyful occasion." The ob-
gervance of the day was not confined
to. New York city.

Newton'. Telescope.
Newton fashioned a concave mirror
from a mixture of copper and tin,
which gives a surface with almost the
luster of silver. An image of the star
was produced In the focus of this mir.
ror, and then this Image when exam-
laea by a magnifying eyepiece permits
the astronomer to study the star at
what is equivalent to a greatly reduced
distance. Such is the principle of the
famous erecting telescope which bear
the name of Newton. The little reflect-
or which he constructed is still pre-
Perved as one of the treasures of the
Royal society. The telescope tube had
the very modest dimensions of an inch
In diameter. It was, however, the pre-
cursor of a whole series of maguificent
Instruments, each outstripping the oth-
er in magnitude.

A Troubled One.
It is said that the expression "Ther,".
s a skeleton in every closet" arose
from the fbllowlng incident: A young
Italian student, finding he was dying,
fearing to break the news to his moth-
oir, adopted the following device: Iie
Infornied her that he was ill and' that
It had been foretold. hIe would not re-
cover until he had worn a shirt made
by a woman who had no trouble. The
widow soon discovered it was no easy
task to find such a person,.but at length
was referred to a lady who seemed
sirroutided with every comfort and(
happiness and possessed a htisband
who seemed devoted to'her. The wid-
ow made known her request and for
an answer was shown a closet where a
skeleton hung suspended from a beam.
Bhe was told It was the- remains of thr
lady't former lover, who from motives'
of jealousy had been slai4 by her hus-.
liand, and that he conipelled her to vis-
it It every day. The widow concluded
that no one was without trouble, that-
"there is a skeleton in every closet,"
Uand beeninc reeuon'ild to the approach-
ti3 loss of her son.

The Romance of

a Slipper

By Virginia. Leila Wentz

Copyright, 1905, -by E'. C. Parcclb' ,
A--------------------------------------.
When Miss Graham had finished her
letter and laid her pen down, she saun-
tered indolently to the small window
liid looked across at the pine woods.
It was one of those country windows
to open which demands strength which
is as the strength of ten and which,
when opened, refuse to be closed agaia
save with the archaic force of a bat-
tering rain.,
"Even though I do live in a Harlem
flat," pondered Kitty Graham, "I've
been accustomed to windows that re-
mained up without any visible means
of support. Since I've conime to the
Berkshires I've learned better. Seems
to me that one volume of Thackeray
doesn't keep tlihe window up high
enough." She gazed searchingly about
the room. "I reckon one of my high
heeled slippers will about do it," and
she inserted that bit of personal prop-
erty with no mean skill, so that the
heel raised the sash two or thi'ee inches
higher.
"That isn't much," she concluded, a
trifle warm with the exertion, "but it's
something. And how delicious that
pine fragrance is!" She beqt her pret-
ty head so that her little nose drew in
long breaths of the sweet air. Then,
picking up lher letter, she went down-
stairs. *
"Mrs. Barnes," came Miss Grahami's
silvery voice from the hall, "shall I
leave ly letter here on the tablle? Or
is it too) hate for the butcher'"
"-Sakes alive! Yes. lie was here
'fore you was up." returned Mrs.
Barnes choerfuliy from her rocking
rhlair on tbo front pianzzai. *"ut maybe
there'll be soneb tdy along presently
ol tlihe way t) North Aidains. You
niluht stick it in the raillhu in case
111y!iody tloos ,ome," shep added.
\ Kitty s-auntercd to the fenie and
h',irl o over the railing. But no one
.wais in s ght.
'">S'>upoe I walk over to North Ad-
u': iv:c!f," suges-teod she. "Is it

'lie gite of the "other house" creak-
ed as it was pulled open. 'lhey could
always l.e:;r that gate creak. Mrs.
liarnes stopped rocking and looked up
the road.
"Here conimes Professor Thornton,"
she said placidly. "But, of course, we
couldn't ask him."
"H'm!" murmured Kitty absently.
"'lVhy not?"


c looking man of middle ag. As lie
ippiroa(hled, followed by a tlandso ise
colie, Kittie went to Ilthe gate and held
out her letter with a frank, winning
smile.
"If you're going to the village would
you mind mailing this for me?" said
she gravely. "I should be very much
obliged." '
Mrs. Barnes from the rocker on the
piazza looked at the girl with mild
reproach, but met no glance of apology.
Kitty's wide gray eyes were following
Professor Thornton's aristocratic fig-
ure down the road and evolving some
questions. She turned abruptly.
"Who is he? Why did you hesitate
about asking him? Don't you think
he'll mail it all right? It's to mother,
and it's very important, and you don't
think he'll drop it, do you?"
And what Mrs. Barnes thereupon
told her was in substance if not in
words something like this:
lie was Professor Hamilton Thornton
of New York city, serving as his mis-
tress star eyed science. But of Womn-
an (with a capital W) and her Ways
(another capital 1W) he was totally ig-
norant. The Iciest of iced water was
warm, so rumor had it, to the look he
bestowed upon women.
"And how ever you braced up spunk
enough to ask him to imail that letter,"
concluded Mrs. Barnes, rocking way
back, "I don't know."
"Ho: Hum!" yawned Kitty. "Well,
the woods for mine." And with a nod
of farewell she passed out of the gate.
Over the slippery needles she went
till she reached a tall tree whose shaft
went straight up, not bothering itself
with branches for thirty feet. Here
she threw herself down and leaned
back in the embracing roots, pitying
the people in -towns and heaving a
sigh of satisfaction.
"If only dear mother could be with
me, though," said she mentally, "but of
course it's impossible. Oh, this pover-
ty stricken workaday world!" She
couldn't help thinking of the pretty lit-
tle estate in Virginia which yielded
nothing and of "the subsequent hard-
rthiij which she and her frail, delicate
mollier were enduring.
"WVell, the doctor said if I'd stop fret-
ting and would try to enjoy every mio-
Ilent of my nimonth lere ini these Ira-
grant hill. I'd be all right. for my win-
ter work, so I'ml only going to think of
pleasure ;ind-and bracing things."
And while the resinous baik gave forth
its spicy smilell. reclining agaign-,t 1the
roots of the pin) tree, she lazily watch-
ed the small and active insects which
went pottering about the needles and
mnoss of soft earth.
"Oil, it's delicious and restful-so
restful!" sighed she, 'stretching her
ar.ins a'hove l:er head.
Tiiat i Lght. inslt'e.d of! lighting her
beodrlooi'. cand'le, she went to the win-
Oiow thiroI",u,4h whose uncurtained frame
tlie iilouiligiht poured In. It wnvs still
uphlt'ld by the volume of Tllhicke :iy and
by thI high heeled slipper. The Octo-
er night ;iir was quite chilly; there
was too much of it. Kitty thought.
while sH;e -was getting ready for bed,
d.h'd c.!'dl, it from below and profit
aft',' arv d *'/
5o, ,tuiyhg (he sash with her right
houi'er. s -e tried to extricate the slip-
pi" anil tihe b ok, bit, alas, the'slipper
eudid' etr :tild tl:mbled hliel first into
the pailh' bt'low.
Kilty's lirst thought was to run and
fetih it back, but she' was utterly
sleopy. "Oil, psmI!". .yawined she,
"What's the use? I'll get it in the
mourning,. It isn't going to rain; the
sky's cramin full of stars."
The next morning, very early, PIrince,
the big collie, c.amie running in to his
master, waving his tail excitedly. and
droppedd something at his ftet. Then,.
flopping 'g is tawny length upon the
heartil r'ug, he eyed him expectantly.
Pr'ofrssor Thornton looked at the
thing which Pl'rince had deposited at
his feet without touching it.
It was a slipper, he saw now, but
how incredibly tiny it looked on his
expense of flior, how helpless and lost!
Hie picked it up a bit gingerly. Why,.
it was absurdly tiny. What queer lit-
tle feet women must have! HIe set the
slipper uiprighrt on his big brown hand
-atm airy suede bridge across his broad
palm.
IId'd seen things like this-hadn't he'.
-on blocks in shop windows. No, not
precisely like this, either, for this had
*little curves--a doeen of them-of indi-
1 -
vid(uality. Pretty little thing, but what
nonsense for a shoe!
lIe hesitated a second, then softly
opened the top right hand drawer of
his desk. "Maybe some one will call
for it," thought he. "Then I'll be surt
to know where it is."


lie thought of this drawer several
times during the day, but did not opera
it. It was queer no one missed it.
That night, however, he set the tiny
thing up on his big blue blotter. It
shone under the student lamp in shimn
mering daintiness, so soft, so smooth
with such curves! Why, it looked al
most warm.
The professor leaned back in his re
evolving chair and looked around his
room, dim save for the desk's circling-
light. The room seemed empty in spite
of its furnishings-great cases of books
rugs, antlers, a favorite gun and :
generous pipe rack, and In the midsl
of a circle of light a lonely man and t
suede slipper.
Yes, the professor felt lonely. Hlt
picked up the slipper, turning it ovei
and,over. Suddenly he cried:
"Why, there's K. G. just as plain
right on the linirg, in silver letters!'
Prince sniffed at this illuminating dis
cover.
Next day as the professor was pass
ing Mrs. Barnes' place he saw a dainty
little figure rn white at the gate. Sh<
raised her lovely tired eyes in recogni
tion.
"Would you mind inquiring for my
mail?" she asked. Both her mannci
and her words were of a disarming
simplicity. "Miss Graham is my nami
-Kitty Grahanm."
"Miss Grahamn-Kitty Grahtm," re
heated lie gravely, with a courtly bow
Then he stopped short and regarded
the girl with absorption, a wonlei
growing in his eyes. "Miss Graham,'
said he, "do you ever wear slippers?"
**What question to ask a girl!
laughed Kitty some weeks: Int,'r. "'An:
what an amusing way to bs.giu a court

"Drayton i.i still with us and has just

Her" wal s ;itiilhoer Iluzzle, but it did
not take the, astute official long to reach
a conclusion. Drayton had claimed
that the felony had been committed by
s9me man resembling him. Here was
his prototype, his twin brother. While
he looked more like a respectable busi-
ness man than a thief, the ex-deputy
determined not to let him go without a
rigid ex:imzinm;tion. '
It happened that the two got off at
the s;ume city, and they hbad scarcely
descendeJ from the train before the
tc,.i,.-. rL was given in charge by the
ofl3cial and taken to a police station. It
was a h:gh handbd thing to do, and if

H[e seemed stunned at first over his
arrest and then grew indignant and
'h:' ateinig. HIe gave a certain name
ind claimed a certain city as his resi-
lniwe, and for a time the police were
nclined to apologize and let him go. It
vas only when the ex-deputy began to .
lue..tio:1 him about a certain date, the
I.lt cf the robbery, that he tripped in
a.; ;n -i'Ns and aroused new suspicion.
Few i en have done for another what
whe cpilty did for Drayton. He re-

uinmlinou DIuayton from state prison.
WVih'n the two men finally stood to-
."t'lh1,r there were wonder and amaze-
iuelit i lthe court. Their own moth-
.rs could n)t have told them apart. A

i rdf)ned and restored to citizenship

:arty was sent to occupy his place id
prison n, an the Judge who had read a
moral lesson from the bench had some-
thing more to say. His conscience had
been troubling him for the way he
charged the jury against an innocent
man, and he sought to console it-by ad-
mitting that somewhere in the world
every man may find his prototype, but
that the law could not take cognizance
'of the fact.
