fall iln prices. As the price of cattle
anil corn decreases in 'consequence of
publislhing to the world the depravity
of' ie packers, the farmer will have
good cause of coinmplaint against the
administrations,. The people have
been taxed (ior years to pay for a cai-
tie aind beeft inspection bureau that
lias evidently ,shimked the work and
tlhe republican politicians who have
charge of' it are either incompetent or
have been induced by thoe Beef Trust
to overlook their, depravity, There
should be an amendment to the
meat inspection law, that all those
found guil ty of lax in-spection, or
those convicted of packing diseased
meat, or in a filthy cotidition should
bo imprisoned with a diet of embalmn-
ed beef and their cells kept in the
sanio condition as they allowed the
packing houses to be in.
The public who are compelled to*
use packing house products care lit-
tle or nothing about the intemperate
controversy indulged in by any mem-
ber of the committee on agriculture
and *the president. What the people
want is a "safe and sane" inspection
that ihey have been taxed to pay for,
but that evidently the agrmcult'ral
department has not provided, altho'
having a regiment of experts and in-
spectors on its pay rolls for that pur-
pose ftor years past. Gen. Miles
warned the executive departments
during the Spanish war that ourt
beef inspection was a tarce, but the
packers and the agricultural depart-
tuent were whitewashed and Gen.
Miles was virtually punished for do-
ing his dutyy.
There can be no excuse, by those
in authority, for this scandal, which

tenness connected with the meat-
panking industry will be that if a re-
form is iDaugurated the burden will
be shifted fjom the shoulders of the
consumer to thit of the producer--
the Beef Trust prices for the finished
product will continue to prevail and
the beneficiaries of the trust will re-
joice that they still have the masse
within their grasp on both sides of
the deal.

Martha's eyes were troubled as she
hung ui) thb receiver.
"Just like Bertie," she mused, tak-
ing up her coat, cap and goggles and
-,oing slowly up the stairs. "Exactly
like Bertie. This morning we were to
spoud our last afternoon sailing; at
noontime ho sent a messenger to, say
io had ,changed his mind and would
come in his automobile; now he tele-
phones that we will go on our wheels
to the redwoods."
"Unstable as water' but handsome as
a king-ought to be,,' was her thought
a few minutes later. They were walk-
.;r- dowu tihe cardii l-
r%-clecs waiting ar tei g ^S ^'W
- "Here's a .flower for you," he said
,'ayly, stooping to pick a pelargonium.
"Fitting symbol of you Is this Martha
Washington. Not a bit high toned, but
smiling alike on the rich and the poor;
delicately colored, lut sturdy for all
that, my* Martha."
bhe responded absently to his chat-
ter. She was glad he did not seem to
expect much of her in the way of
"I suppose you have been wondering
why I changed my mind so often."
They had walked up hills and wheel-
ed down their and over the level
places and along the cool shady path
to the redwoods. They were sitting
where a streamlet leapqd forward to
kiss. the feet of ta ferns; where the
redwoods gave out a soothing fra-
grance. A few steps away was garish
sunshine, but here shade and coolness
and quiet. Martha's troubled heart
lightened, and she smiled winsomely
into Bertie's face.
'Why?" she queried.
"Because I am going to ask you
iomethiug, and I wanted to choose' the
best place for it. This is the best of
all, isn't It, beloved? I want you to
marry me, Martha, tonight and go
away with me or not go away. I don't
know that I care anything about see-
ing New York, anyway."
"You want me to marry you tonight
for fear that by Christmas or Septem-
ber or tomorrow you might change
your Maind? Thanks for the compli-
ment, and no, thank you, for the offer."
Bertie's face was white. She was
savagely glad she had hurt him. He
might realize a little of her suffering.
"Do you think I want a husband
who changes his mind on a subject as
many times as there are hours in a
day? What pleasure is there in you,
Bertie Iharrison, and what confidence
can one have? We were to read to im-
prove our minds. You began with Wil-
liam Tell at the arrow scene; then you
took a chapter in"'Merchant of Ven-
ice:' next you thought Burton Holmes'
"Don't. Martha," Bertie interrupted.
"Proba'bliy I shall thank you some time,
but j.nist now I can't stand any more
than a l.iumeopathic dose."
If Loreie had got furious with her
or if he had cried-she felt as if she
would not have been surprised to see
him cry like a girl-she could have
kept on pelting him with her sharp
words, but to have him quiet and
white- that was something she could
not bear. Tears dropped on the Martha
Was-hilngton in her cold hand.
"Forgive me, dear; I didn't mean"-
"Pardon me, Martha; I think you
meant exactly what you said. In the
flash of your words I see what I won-
der I have failed to discover hereto-
fore. Isn't there a saying that if you
can properly diagnose a case the cure
is half effected? If I overcome the
fault and make a man of myself may
I expect your favor, Martha?"
She shook her head.
"I can't have any faith in you, Bertie,
but after all you are not to blame.
You can't be different. There are too
many odds against you. It's heredi-
tary. My father knew your father

well. Geminf Is your birth sign-twvo
forces pulling in opposite directions.
Then your fortune stands in your way
and even your name. You can never
expect a Napoleon of a Dt'rtle."
"Can any good come out of Naza-
reth?" he said bitterly. "But you re-
member the best did come out 6f Naza-
reth. If you cared for me"-
"I care, Bertle, if that's any'consola-
tion. I could wait years for your but"-
"Well, that's enough. Bertle threw
up his cap and caught it as it came
down. The red came back into his
smooth cheeks. "Now I will fare forth
into the world and show you what a
man's will can do in spite of heredity
and astrology and all the rest. You'll
see, Maid Martha."
This sudden change of spirit was so
like variable Bertile that Martha
"I'm sorry I can't encourage you."
It was a year before newsa-rnpm from ,
the absent Bertie. Martha might have
Inquired from his friends in her own
city, but she was too proud. He had
turned from her as lightly, as easily,
as he had always flitted from one
phase of life to another-a butterfly,'
she thought scornfully. Why should
she waste tears on him? So she spent
her days among her flowers and books,
and if her nights were not always
peaceful she gave no sign.
At the year's end a thick packet came
to her. With nervous, trembling haste
she tore off string and paper and
brought forth Bertie's diary.
"And to think I doubted him," she
sobbed as she found her name on every

$100 of his fortune, pledging himself
not to touch another penny of it till a
year had gone. He had sought service
immediately, beginning with the most
menial tasks. How his sensitive nature
loathed them none knew better than
Martha. IHe had kept at each employ-
ment till he found something a step
At the end of four months he discov-
cred a friend of his father, who offer-
ed him a clerkship and gave him freely
all the information he needed. It was
when he was established in this that
he had made his code of rules.
After office hours. a two hour walk,
'dinner, then study till 11, his bedtime.
This was not to be varied for six days.

"Can he be strong enough, the olear,
brave iboy?" Martha wondered as she
read eagerly on, but it was when she
was -niling over some w i'ri!, ,.

expression, that it came.

After that was the continuation of'
the arduous routine. On the last page,
lie had written, "If I do not win my
Martha after all, I feel that I shall
come somewhat nearer to deserving
her!" ..
Another six months dragged by. The
diary contained no clew to his address
save New York city, s6 that Martha
could not send him encouragement and
loving messages of which her heart
was full. She felt that she deserved
the suspense, but it was fearfully hard
to bear. When it seemed to her that
she could endure it no longer, an omi-
nous yellow envelope came to her.
"Bert Harriman seriously ill In B.
hospital; constantly calling Martha."
Even in her distress Martha noticed
"Bert," not "Bertie,"' mute tribute to
his winning battle against birth signs,
heredity and fortune.
Less than a week later Martha sat
troi'mbling in. the office of B. hospital
while a sweoot faced nurse talked to
give her time to regain her control.
"It was 'Martha, Martha, Martha,'

walk for two hours, no matter what

Their nurso's keen eyes saw that Mar-
tha's trembling lips had grown quiet,
and she annswered the smile in her wet
eyes cheerily.
But when at last Martha was by her
lover's side she was the weaker of the
"I felt'all day that you were coming,

Fiercely restrained sobs choked back

When John Walker was left a wid-
ower, although he was in the prime of
manhood, with a comfortable income
and good habits, it was universally

predicted thli h'I could never win a
second wife.
For what manner of woman-that is,
of the type fastidious John Walker
would fancy-could contemplate the
prospect oiftepmothering seven daugh-
ters ranging in age from pert thirteen
to precocious four?
If the children had been boys, John
Walker's prospects would hqve been
more favorable, for a squad of boys
can be turned afield, but seven girl
to hear and heed until they should
come to an age when they would with
their lords depart!
John Walker was domestic, and after
two years of widowerhood he began 4A
yearn for a goddess of his hearth and.
home. The affairs of his household
had not been administered so badly
since his wife died. The cook was ca-
pable and honest and had been reign-
ing over the kitchen for eight years.
The seamstress, who had always spent
a month each spring and autumn "sew-
ing up" for the young Walkers, contin-
ued her visits, with the added respon-
sibility of selecting and purchasing
The eldest girl, Madge, was romis-
ng, to be quite a practical little house-
keeper, but John Walker knew that a
wise feminine hand and heart were es-
sential to the guidance of his active,
romping, unruly troop of youngsters.
lIe began to call assiduously upon
Cecilia Rayne, a young woman re-
nowned for her intellect, practicality
and excellent judgment. She accepted
his attentions, though reservedly, and
with a general air of careful consider-
ation and "weighing in the balance."
IIts intentions were regarded as un-
mistakable iwhen he invited her, with
her mother, to visit his home and drink
tea one afternoon. The children on this
fateful day had never been so noisy or
unattractive. Even Madge was bois-
terous and untidy.
John Walker did not know that it
was malice aforethought on the part
of hl. offspring. Madge was preco-
cious and acute eared. She had heard
It said that John Walker would'marry
just its soon as he could find any one
to have him. She had sized up Miss
Rayne as a home ruler, and in the
mother of Miss Rayne she scented a
natural enemy.
So she instigated and encouraged re-
b--llA.,n Ia her many sisters, and their
dei;ort _icut e'.irrild the day. Johnl
\Waik,-r escortedd his guests to thllr'
Ijon1 11ind returned with the firm in-
tenti,:1. of' alministi rling unto his own
soImtllienmt s.roinger than rebuke.
H1o found his flockt whlte robed and
swc't voiced, awaiting with uplifted
rL,,utl,- h:- good night caress, and he
could inot brine himself to mnr their
shufl..ibers l.v >o much as a word.
"If zhe only could have soeu them as
thoy are now!" he thought, with a re-

Mandge's busy little -brain worked
overtime that night on the solution of
the' stepmother problem. A day or
two after the -ev6ntful visit of Miss
Cecilia Rayne, as John Walker was
passing a little park, he met two or
three kindergarten teachers walking
with their young charges. He gave'
them but a casual glance, when his
attention was attracted by a delighted
cry of "Papa l"
The littlest and last child in*the pro-
cession let go of the hand of the young
girl with whom she was walking and
rushed up to him.
"Why, Tot," he said, taking her up
in his arms.
Then he looked hesitatingly" at the
young teacher, who was walking, on
"You must be Mr. Walker," she said
naively. "I am Tot's_ kindergarten
"Are you?" he asked interestedly. "I
didn't know that Tot attended a kin-
"Didn't you?"' she asked anxiously.
"M;.:;: 'brought her to school yester-
l'tay amnd entereitd her as a pupil. I sup-
posed it was your wish."
"Of course it is," he replied prompt-
ly, "o:ly 1 hadn't thought. of it before.
I am grlad Madgie is so wise."
"I've learned lots, papa. I'm going
to prick you a card." assured Tot.
"Thank you, darling. Where is your
school, Mis"-'-
"Word -,"' she said., supplying the
name. "The school is on the corner of
Wood and Third streets, three blocks
lhe'ow. Are you fond of children, Mr.
Walker?" sihe asked, looking up at the
princess enthroned on his shoulder.
"Naturally," he said, with a whim-
slcal smile.
She flushled and laughed a little.
"Come and visit our school some
time, then."
"I will walk there with you now,"

he responded promptly, setting Tot
down on Ihe sidewalk.
The child instantly appropriated a
hand of each guardian and skipped
along between them.
"Who takes her to and from school?"
he asked, remembering the automobiles.
and trolley cars.
"Madge has so far."
"Madige said you could stop for me
noons on your way home to luncheon,"
said the little girl.
"Why, yes, so I can. How did Madge
know of yosr school, Miss Worden?"
"Oh. Madge and I are old friends. I
give music lessons afternoons, and her
inseparable companion, Grace Landon,
Is one of my pupils."
"I wish you would give Madge lea
sons too. Her teacher left the city
some time ago, and I have neglected to
have her start again."
"I should be glad to teach her," said
the girl simply.
"Very well. You may commence to-
faorrow, if agreeable, and give her two
lessons a week."
"She's a sweet little girl," thought
John Walker as he pursued his way
from the kindergarten.' "She must be
Tom Worden's daughter. Poor fellow
His failure took all he had. She's a
trump to take hold and help in this


The first day that John called for Tot
t, so' cordially seanlded the chili's in-
vitation to her teacher to come home
with them t-% luncheon that she was
forced to comply.
Madge's music hour was from 5:30 to
'3, and she would not practice properly
unless her teacher would consent to
stay to dinner. The children all claim.
ed her as a kindred spirit and called
her "Bess," for Which they were stern-
'y and Ineffectually reprimanded by
their parent, who finally followed their
example and called her by that name
In the month of July the Walkers
went to their summer cottage on a lake
some twenty miles from the city.
"You need a vacation more than any
me," said John Walker abruptly to
Bess one day. "You must go with us."
"Thank you very much," said the girl
gratefully. "It's kind in you to ask me,
but of course I can't accept."
"Why not?" he demanded. "Your
father is gqing west on an extended
business trip, and be won't need you."
The girl blushed, hesitated and then
-aid frankly:
"Why, you 'see, of course, it would
:-eally be all right, but then you know
people would talk-they wouldn't ap-
She began to flounder in her explana-
!Ion, and John suddenly comprehended.
"I sea," he laughed, nodding. "But
you see you have come to seem to me
like one of my own-my eighth girl, I
-all you-but I"suppose you are grown
np enough fo.' a chaperon."
"I am twenty years old," she said
with dignity.
"Indeed! A great age. Well, I have
a second cousin, a meek, elderly wid-
ow, whom the children rule firmly. I
presume she would like a month or so
at 4he cottage."
So it was finally arranged.
From that time on John Walker sud-
denly regarded his children's teacher in
a new light. (
"I wonder if a beautiful young girl
like Bess could come to care for an old
duffer like me," he pondered. "I had
supposed that she considered me an old
man I"
A thrill stirred within him as he
looked up at the fair young face gazing
haippily over the waters of the lake on
the first night of their arrivaL
"Bess!" be said suddenly.
But the children bad also called
"Bess," and she was away for a romp
on the beach.
"She is on!y a child, after all," he
thought, with a sigh.

use, but Bess-one Sunday morning ven-

to keep her little craft right side up,
John Walker, coming out on th@ ve-
randa of the cottage, saw her danger
and rushed to the boathouse, Intending
to row out after her. Another emotion
besides anxiety surged whuin him, and
he knew now that he loved this play-
mate of his children.
She was making great progress with
her tiny canoe, and as he rowed out
from the boathouse she was landing at
the pier.
It was a very merry, winsome face,
alight with the excitement and danger,
that was lifted to hip.
In the reaction from his fright he
was beginning to censure her when he
was interrupted by Madge, who had
appeared upon the scene and who In-
stantly resented her father's lecture.
"You shall not scold her!" she cried
hotly. "I wanted her for our step-
mother, but I'll- give her up If you
aren't going to be nice to her."
Bess turned red and pale by turns.
"I'll race you to the house, Madge,"
she cried, and they were away.
"Bess," said John softly when he had
succeeded' in getting an interview, "as
I said, I had thought df you as my
eighth girl. I don't want to think of
you as a stepmother, but I do want
you to be my wife and a companion to
the girls because I love you. Will you
try and care for me?"
The verdict of the world was that
John Walker had eight girls now and
needed a woman in his house more
than ever.

Complete Letter "Writers.
One of the earliest of these "guides,"
dated 1615, was styled "A President
For Young Penmen." It was advertis-
ed as full of variety, delight and pleas-
're. The former quality it undoubted-
ly possessed, as will be seen from the
following headings: There is "A letter
from a friend to a fantastical, conceit-

ed madeap," "A byting letter to a
clamorous gentlewoman," with a "byt-
Ing" answer to the same, which must
have relieved the feelings of the writ-
er; also a "Melancholy, discontentlve
letter upon the frowne of a kinsman,"
and, as a variation, "A kind of quarrel-
some letter upon a frowno of a friend."
A letter to an "tnkle to borrow a
horse," strikes one as being of more
practical value than all the rest put to-
.gether and Infinitely to be preferred as
a model to the epistle of "Miss Molly
Smith to her cousin, giving her an ac-
coint of a very remarkable instance of
envy in one of her acquaintance who
lived in the city of York." How a dis-
tracted scribe was to get help or com-
fort from Miss Molly Smith Is more

Art Above Nature
Art is one of the greatest phenomena
of our world. It'Is one of the most
serious of things. Nature bas no art,
Nature is grotesque anid weird, bti'
art Is ours; It Is human. Art meanS
anything. A system of philosophy 1i
as much art as beauty in sculpture and
rhythm and cadence In poetry. There
Is the art of living, the art of meeting
people. No bird gives real music. The
finest nightingale sends out only weird
tones, but it Isn't music. The only mu-
sical sound In nature is the sound of
water dripping from a rock. Art is
hypernature, antinature. 'It Is neither.
imitation nor rivalry, but something
we give to nature.-Dr. Emil Reich,

One of the Vagaries of Memory.
A child of American parents was
born n Spain, and, although the lan-
guage of the family was English, she
learned to speak Spanish fluently. She
then removed to. America and went
luto a boarding school where French
was the only language spoken. Of
e4orse, hearing no Spanish, the child
gradually seemed to forget it. Hier
knowledge of French was perfect, and
that she ised a a well as Engish.
When she became an elderly lady her
Health failed her, and she sank into,
a condition of physical and mental
weakness. After a time her attendants
observed that she seemed not to under-
stand anything that was spoken in
Engl~,I. but conversed in French with
ease. At last sie lapsed into a long
Interval of scmiconsciousness, during
which she understood nothing. During
the last days of her, life she suddenly
Rallied, and her command of Spanish
0 ba9 ta to her, sO that she talked
Sswir-f Itn and thoroughly under-
stood it. As a case of mental lapse
and peculiarity of memory this is con-
uidered quite worthy of note.

A great crowd gathered at Panama
City. yesterday, to celebrate the
anniversary of the birth of these
United States. The threatening rainy
weather of the several days previous
gave way, the morning clouds van-
ished and the day was an ideal one
4t the appointed time, Mr. G. M.
West, the president for the occasion,
opened the program in a few well-
timed remarks and introduced Mr.
Frank L. Mayes, editor and manager
of the Pensacola Journal, who for
half an hour held the closest atten-
tion on the part of his hearers. Lack
,f time prevents the Buoy from giv-
ing an extended report of this mas-
terly address: but it is enough to say
that it should have been heard and
treasured deep by everyone who
takes, or should take an interest in
the welfare of this government. His
reference to the adroitly concealed
rooks that are a menace to our liber-
ty-assuring system painted a picture
replete with sound logic and patent
trat hls.
Our fellow-townsman, N!ev. J, M.
Conway was then introduced and his
address was no less liberty-inspiring
than that of the first speaker. Al-
though an adopted citizen from Ire-
land. known to the civilized wo:-ld
for the oppression practiced against it
by the British ,government, he bhow-
ed a familiarity with American hiisto.
ry that may well be the envy of the
native citizen many years his senior,

mother country, he lelt" no doubt in

er love he beats for the land of his
adopt ion.

nings of Pensacola was presented.
Mr. Jennings, although having been
invited to be present, was not aware
that lie would lIe called upon for an
address until after his arrival at St.
Andrew. Tuesday evening, and hence
made excuse that hlie was not pre-
pared; but it was the unanimous ver-
diet that there was no occasion for
excuses, for it is doubtful it lie could
have better pleased his hearers if he
had devoted ever so much time to
Mr. West spoke a volume of truth
when he said that vi th the two chief
officers of Pensacola's Chamber ol
Commerce with us, we might well
consider that we had the whole ot
'eiasa.- ith aus.
The Buoy regrets that space will
not permit a full report of all three
of these addresses, They would form
a chapter in the history of St. An-
drews Bay well worth preservation.
The barbecue followed the speak-
ing, aud the hungry multitude soon
made way with the stacks of elegant-
ly roasted" meat and other provisions,
which were relished by all.
There seemed to be no relish for
games after the rich hliterary treat,
and that feature of the celebration
gave way to the social commingling
of neighbor's and friends many of
whomi have no opportunity lor coming
together except on occasions like this.
The managers of the Panama City
celebration deserve no limit to the
thanks due them for providing so
pleasant an entertainment. and eve:y
ouone will wish them a crowning snuc-
cess with their embryo city.

There is comfort in the knowledge so

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,
v.ine or beer, and overcomes that unpleasant
. necessity cf being compelled to go often
during the day, and to get up many times
during the night. The mild and the extra-

realized. It stands the highest for its won-
derful cures of the most distressing cases.

A Stag and a Ladder.
Stories of deer with rain barrels or
water pails on their heads are common
enoiug' among Maine and Adirondack
guide-4, but it is left for Europe to come
to the fore with a variant. Some hunts-
men near Innsbruck came upon a stag
with a ladder on its antlers. In spite
of this handicap it made off at great
speed on seeing the man, leaping
hedges and dashing through the under-
growth as if quite unimpeded. Its mad
career was stopped, however, when the
ends of the ladder caught between two
trees. Its struggles were so frantic at
the approach of the huntsman's dog
that it broke off part of its antlers and,
thus freed, made good its escape. The
ladder proved to belong to a farmer
who had left it-standing against one of
his haystacks. While stealing the hay
the stag had evidently upset the lad-
der, which had thus become fixed on
its horns. -

Dissipated Elements.
In the disintegration of radium by
ihe giving off of helium the amount of
.-nergy set free is 1,000,000,000 great
.lories for one grain of radium. Now
a.o reconstruct the dissipated elements
voull require .as much energy as was
lost in their dissipation, and this ex-
.plains the hopelessness of their synthe-
'is, as no such amount of energy can
')e employed. How were these ele-
nents first constructed? That Is a
question for the students. A German
physicist W. Meigen, suggests that the
..sslpation of elements is an actually
irreversible process, like the dissipation
of heat.-Independent.

The old man used to boast that he
never went back on his exact word,
but had no compunctions in going

tain tract of land, and when the owner
named the price he exclaimed:
"I won't give it! I tell you I will
never give It!"
The owner d!d rnot yield nevertheless.
A. few days afterward the old man
called again. He said nothing about
the land, but stepped into the owner's
barn nnd picked up a flail.
"What's that?" he asked.
"That? Oh, that's a flail."
"So you call that a flail, do you?
Well. what would you take for It?"
The owner named a very small sum.
"Now, I'll tell you what I'll do," con-
finned the old man. "I'll give you the
price you mentioned for your land and
this flail. And you mustn't forget the
flail. It must be included In the deed."

Rules and Directions For Servants.
'lh.-it lie Wrote.
There was a servant problem when
Dean Swift was alive just as there is
today, and he died in 1745. In his
"Rules and Directions For Servants"
he wrote: "When you have broken all
your earthen vessels below stairs.
which is usually done In a wee'., the
copper pot will do as well. It can
boil milk. heat porridge, hold small
beer. Apply it indifferently to all these
uses, but never wash or scour it." And
again: "If you want paper to singe a
fowl, tear the first book you see about
the house. Wipe your shoes, for want
of a clout, on the bottom of a curtain
or a damask napkin." "In roasting
and boiling," he goes on, "use none but
the large coals and save the small ones
for the'fires above stairs." Another
touch that might have been written to-
day is the following: "When a butler
cleans the plate leave the whiting
plainly to be seen in all the chinks, for
fear your lady should not believe you
had cleaned it." Once more: "There
are several ways of putting out a.
candle. You may run the 'candle end
agatist the wainscot, which puts the
snuff out immediately; you may lay it
on the ground and tread the snuff out
with your foot; you may hold It up-
side down until it is choked in its
own grease or cram it into the socket
of the candlestick; you may whirl It
t-ound in your hand till It goes out."
Priests and Beards.
The beardless priest is only a matter
of custom, there being no edict upon
the subject. All of the popes from
Adrian VI. to Innocent XII. and all
the cardinals and other church clerics
during the same period were bearded
dignitaries. Ignatius Loyola, St. Fran-
cis Xavier, Francis de Sales, Vincent
de Paul and the Cardinals Bellarmine
and Richelieu all wore full beards.

was erected in the garden of Its invent-
or in 1787. This harp consisted of 'fif-
teen iron wires, 820' feet in length,
stretched between two poles. The wires
were from two to three inches apart,
the largest being 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-
grees with the horizon, being stretched
by means of rollers properly disposed
for the purpose. Whenever the weath-
er changed the wires sounded with
such loudness that it was impossible to
go on with a concert in the house. The
sound sometimes represented the hiss-
lag noise of water in rapid ebullition,
sometimes that of a harmonicon and
sometimes that of distant chimes or an
"Now," said the physician who is not.

"All right,"- responded the patient in
a tone of utter resignation. "You've

There's no reason why you shouldn't
take that too."-Paris Journal.

What Gave the Earth Its Motion?
You have often asked or had th<
question asked of you, "What gave th
earth its dally motion, and how Is thi
force of that motion kept up'" but hav
never been really satisfied with the an
swer given or the reasons therefo
which you were able to advance in ex
pliunatiou. The astronomers are no
even ageed upon thi3 question. Som
of them claim that the "original lnl<'a
centrifugal force" was directed in
line slightly to one side of the cente
of the globe, which would, of course.
cause the earth to rotate upon Its axlh
*tnd by the law of Inertia of matte:
must continue to revolve at a uniform
rate of speed. This "law of the inertia
of matter" is to the effect that matter
mce set In motion must continue to
move until arresteJ by some outsld
rorce. Others clatm that the motion l-

i "compound resultant of the motion of
the earth in Its orbit and the attraction
of the sun."

The Stars and Strlies.
A German periodical has the follow-
ing story as to the orlg:n of the stars
and stripes: The idea originated with
a D)ane named Marker. He was born
.m the island of St. Crol:c of the Dan-ish
West Indies, where his father and
grandfather had lived. In 179G he left
his native island and proceeded to PMil
ade plia. IHe was among the first to
join a company of volunteers for
American liberty and Independence.
For valor shown at Oriskany hbe was
elected captain, and to show hsl grati-
tude he designed a flag in whose upper
corner he applied the thirteen stars
emblematic of the thirteen original
states of the Union. This was the first
occasion upon w'lch the "star span-
gled banner" was unfurled. The origi-
nal flag of Captain Marker is supposed
to be in existence in some national col-
lection of relics of the war of the Kevo-

son of snow some years ago a farmer
said the buzzards in his locality were
almost starved, and to test the mat-
ter he killed a possum and put it out
where he could be easily found.- The
vultures would not touch it, though they
examined the carcass. Not satisfied,
the farmer cooked another possum up
brown and spread it out, but the bus-
zards declined the feast.-Greenaboro

Cleaning Men's Clotbes.
A tailor of fifty years' experience
gives the following information:
All men's clothing to be cleaned
should be thoroughly beaten and brush-
ed. Some things are so dirty It is ab-
solutely necessary to wash them as
any other woolen goods. Iron on the
wrong side. To remove spots, use the
Two 'ounces of hartshorn, an ounce
of castle soap, a quarter of an ounce
of saltpeter. Dissolve In a quart of
rain water.
He has used many cleaning mix-
tures, but considers this the best. Put
a wad of soft cloth (like an old towel)
under the spot, saturate well and rub
hard. The secret of success lies in
hard rubbing, which will drive the
grease through into the wad of cloth.
Rub dark goods with dark woolen and
light goods with light. Press on right
side with damp cloth between iron and
garment-Buffalo News.

She Paid on the Investment.
"Here,".: complained the aggrieved
father, "I have spent nearly $15,000
on that girl's education, and now she
goes and marries a $2,500 a year clerk."
"Well," said the friend of the family,
"isn't .that all of 15 per cent on your
investment? What more doyou want?'

Perhaps one reason people go late to

A Incident Which Illuatrates tie
Caution of the Animals.
One of the farm boys drew our at-
tention to what seemed little more than
a couple of dark specks on the slope
of thle hills to the right, but we could
soon see that they were moving, and
when they came within half & mile of
us we could distinctly recognize them
as a herd of baboons.
The boy said that he was quite sure
they were on their way to the water;
but, to our surprise.. they did not make
Iny advance. A quarter of an hour
elapsed, half an hour; still no sign of
their appr.Jach. All at once, as itf they '
had stnrtid from the earth by magic,
nt the open end of the pond, not sixty
.yards from our place of ambush, stood
two huge males.
When or how they got there no one
could tell. Probably they had come
by a circuitous way through the val-
ley, or it migbt be that they had crept
struiilighlt down through the grass. They
had certiiinly luled olr observation.
IBling anxious to watch the move-
Itnents of the aulmals and to ascertain
whether they belonged to the herd
playing under the mimosas, I refrained
from firing and determined to see
What would follow next. Both baboons
sprang toward the water, and, leaning
down, they drank till they were satis-
fled. Then, Laving gravely stretched,
themselves, they solemnly stalked
away on all fours in the direction of
the herd. There was little doubt, there-
fore, that they belonged to the herd
and had been sent forward to recon-
noiter, for as soon as they got back
the entire herd put Itself In motion
toward the pond.
There were mothers taking care of
their little ones; there were half grown
animals, the boys and girls of the com-
panty. At first only one baboon at a
time came to the water's edge and,
having taken Its draft, retired to the
rest, but wIln about ten had thus ven-
tured separately they began to come
In small groups, leaving the others roll-
Ing and jumping on the sand.-Youth's
A Powerful Drug.
Cloves are simply the dried flower
buds of a beautiful evergreen tree
growing naturally on the Spice islands.
These flower buds are gathered when
they have become of a bright red and
are just on the point of opening. The
name comes from the resemblance of
the prepared spice to small nails, from
the French word clou. for nail. Cloves
are very heavily charged with a pun-
gent, acrid, volatile oil, as much as 20
per cent somictimies being extracted.
This oil Is vialuatile for flavoring and
scentling purip-.esi amid1 has a limited
field In miedicline. Iut the habit of "eat-
lug cloves." in wlilcli .voung folks and
too often old ones inlulgre. Is very rep-
rehensible. as the oil is a powerful
drug. becoming in many cases an In-
hiilous ploson.

Miss Grannie!



Copyright, 190a, by P. C. Eastment

It iS SO fatally easy for a misunder-
standing to arise.
Johnson, galloping swiftly through
the long lane of overarching June
f,reen, was musin pWmewhat bitterly
upon this fact. ItwVas over a month
now since he had seen Helen Grannis.
a month which had done a great deal
toward quickening a spark hitherto not
entirely recognized Into a vivid flame.
He had tried to see her, but unsuccess-
fully, and.0now his thoughts were
brooding, as so often before, over that
last unfortunate meeting. Was be to
blame or" she? Yet how could the
fault be his?
Once again he went back mentally
to the beginning-that day when he
bad telegraphed to ask if she would
ride. They had often spoken of so do-
Ing, and this had been his first oppor-
tunity, The answer had been that she
would be at the club at 4 o'clock. John-
son, promptness Itself, cantered over
from the stable at 4 precisely. There
he waited. He waited until half after
4; he waited until a quarter of 5.
There was no sign of Miss Grannis.
At last reluctantly he rode toward the
park, wondering what could have hap-
pened. The first person he met, walk-
Ing her horse slowly down the main
drive In the direction of the gate, was
the girl herself, and with her, talking
eagerly, was Ransome Sinclair, the
man of all others whom Johnson most
For a moment Johnson had stared,
really Incredulous, unable to trust his
Then, with a formal lifting of his hat,
he was past, the dark red mounting to
his cheek and rage in his soul. Had
tbe forgotten the engagement, or had
shbe deliberately thrown him over for
Sinclair-Sinclair with his millions,
who could give her everything?
In the sudden blackness revealed by
the flash of jealousy Johnson realized
for the first time how much this slen-
der, dainty girl, with her pretty little
air of stateliness, meant to him.
He had hardly gone a mile before the
Impulse which had made him bow and
pass on looked the height of ridiculous-
ness. Of course there was some mis-
take. Why had he not stopped and ask-
ed? But, although he turned at once, it
was too late; the two had vanished.
He had telephoned that night. Miss
Grannis was out for dinner. He had

ils was not at home. He could not A
vrlte, for ther4 was nothing to say. h
)ne could not ask a lady why she had A
chosen to ride with another. The week t
ifter, when he tried calling once more, ,
he house was closed. He found that aI
he family had departed for their coun- ,
ry place.
Johnson was in despair, but it was f
aot entirely a bad thing for him; it
taught him a lot.
As he turned in now at tue Newkinds g
place and dropped off his horse some :
one moving down by the tennis court h
suddenly brought his heart into his
nouth. Could It be she? He knew that
Miss Grannis and Ida Newlands were
great friends. Was It possible she
might be stopping here for a week end?
With tingling pulses he went forward.
It was-it was! And he might never
have known! Somehow he managed to i
answer properly the greetings of Ida t
and the men grouped about, then he t
turned to Miss Grannls.
He was unreasonable enough to be
disappointed when the girl gave him
merely a conventional smile. HIe felt
that he was the one with the right to I
be angry. Ida Newlands looked sharp-
ly at them both. She knew Helen
Grannls well enough to divine that
something had occurred.
Now, as she saw Johnson, after a mo-
ment, turn aside, her nimble wit leaped
to a sudden guess at the truth. And as
she caught Johnson's flush as Sin-
clair came across the lawn her convic-
tion deepened. But what could be
done? In this last month Sinclair had
been pushing his advan age hard. She
knew that Helen was wavering. Ida
did not fancy Sinclair; It was her
brother who had asked him today. And
she did like Johnson. With a swift in-
spiration she jumped to her feet.
"Lets have some tennis!" she ex-
claimed. "Helen, I will challenge you
and Mr. Johnson to try to beat Mr.
Sinclair and myself. Here's your rack-
et," pretending not to see the girl's re-
luctance. It was the only way she
could think of to bring them together.
Johnson could put up a strong game.
He was tall, with long legs and arms
that seemed to cover every corner of
the court. And Helen had a clean.
telling stroke. Sinclair, however, was
no mean adversary. They would have !
to play up. But Johnson was not think-
Ing of tennis. This was his chance.
He must make the most cI it before
she joined that chattering group. As
he brought the balls to Miss Grannls
for her service he looked down at her
for a moment.
"Why did you not come to the club
that day?" he asked abruptly. "I
waited and waited"-
"Waited!" echoed the girl. "Why"-
"Ready! Interrupted Sinclair, and,
Helen flashed a ball over the not.
Johnson, his heart beginning to beat
fast, tightened the grip on his racket.
There had been surprise, unmistakable
surprise, lu Helen's eyes.
"Did you not expect me to meet you
at the club?" he demanded as they
changed courts.
"You lost that point," was the Imn
patient response. "No, of course not
I always mount at the park entrance."
"But the maid said"- persisted John-
"Then the maid was mistaken. All,
be careful," as he nearly missed a re-
tur:.i-d ball.
,A strange desire not to be beatenC
had suddenly sprung to life in her
breast. They must win this sat, she
aud Johnson. They must not be beat-
en by Sinclair. She looked across the
net at his red, rather heavy face.
Could she marry him? Her family had
hoped for it. He was a splendid
match, of course-and yet-what did
Harry Johnson mean by asking why
she had not come to the club? She
had told the maid to say that she
would be at the park entrance and
then to telephone the club for her
"Waited there an hour," said John.-
son. "And then to meet you coming
out of the park-with another man!
What could I think?"
"Ah!" said the girl, with a quick In-
drawn breath. Couldn't he have known
that she was only walking her horse
up and down while she waited? The
meeting with Sinclair had been pure
chance. She, too, had waited, growing
more and more annoyed with the awk-
ward position In which she found her-
self; annoyed al o by Sinclair's veiled
remarks upon Johnson's tardiness, his
polite wonder, and then to have John-
son appear, raise his hat and pass on!
The girl bit her lip again at the mem-

* Then suddenly as she caught the look
in his eager, earnest eyes her own sof-
tened. After all, he had a bad time
too. And all through that stupid Ma-
rie's having the messages confused.
With an impulsive gesture she turned.
"Do play!" she exclaimed. "We must
get this set."
Sinclair, rather sulky at being forced
to play on a hot afternoon, had hither-
tq not chosen to exert himself, letting
the games go to his adversaries, but
now he was beginning to be interested.
If they were to win, Johnson must con-
centrate. And Johnson, all at once in-
fected by something in the girl's man-
ner, straightened himself. The other
side should not win a single game.
Love three, love four! Sinclair, subtly
aware of an unwonted tension in the
air, strove his utmost, unavailingly.
Johnson, his mouth shut hard, played
as though muscled with steel. Love
five! Helen was breathless, her lips
parted. Love six! Set!
With a great sigh, Johnson faced her.
"We've won!" he whispered exulting-
ly, just loud enough for her to hear.
Helen, her eyes unfathomable, glanced
for a moment across at Sinclair-Sin-
clair with his millions. Then, the sweet-
est, tenderest smile curving her mobile
mouth, she lifted her face to Jolhnson.
"Yes," she said softly; "a love match."
