Realizing that oair railroad stations

(3) For cleanly kept and sanitary
buildings.
(4) For well lighted waittig rooms
and platforms, at all hours of the
night at stations where passenger
trains are scheduled to arrive.
(5) For the beautifying of grounds
around stations arid railroads station

Be it Resolved, that we comimuni-

cooperation for the betterment of the

Mrs. Humphrey shelled the peas in
silence, waiting for the outburst. She
was a meek little woman accustomed
to listening to her beautiful, tall daugh-
ter and obeying her behests unques-
tioningly. Alice possessed all the inde-
pendence of spirit which her mother

the dainty whiteness of her gown.
Then she waited. Soon the rider turn-

"Oil, Bo." she cried as he dismount-
ed and tied his hor-se, "I've becii wi;'h-
ing for you. Everything is so topsy
tin'vy in this horrid place!"
Bob looked anxious. "Is it your fa-
ther again?" he asked as he drew her
down on the step beside him. Alice
told him of her morning's experience.
Bol's face darkened.
"Look here, Alice," he exclaimed,
"I'm not going to stand this. I knew
things were pretty bad, but I never
knew you had to do this sort of work."
He took her hand, looked at the pretty
pink palm with the row of blisters
across it. "I'm not going to say any of
the things to you that I think about
your father. But this is going to stop!

lacked.
"No, mother," said Alice, seizing
viciously on a pea pod and breaking it
open, "no, you can't. It Just isn't born
In you. I've got to do it alone."
"Why, Alice!" exclaimed her mother
With hurt inflection.
"Oh, I know it, mother. I'm a horrid
cross girl, but I can't help it. Father's
gone off again and left us with no
wood. This has been going on for
three years now. Sometimes he re-
members to buy a load, but when he
does we have to split it. And In -the
'meantime we have to scratch and
scramble for wood just as If we were
as poor as poverty. Just look, we've
burned most of the fences till the place
looks more ghastly than- ever, if pos-
sible."
"Alice, Alice," sighed 'Mrs. Hum-
phrey, "you shouldn't talk-'so of your
father."
Alice's face flushed deeper and she
shelled ahandfutl of paB~, foreply-
ing. Then she looked out of the door at
the jimson weeds.
"Everything is all wrong, and it's all
father's fault. Why shouldn't I marry
Bob Philllips? Tell- me that? Just be.
cause he Is a college man and his peo-
ple live in town father has set himself
against him. Now, why does father
send me to college if he.expects me to
settle down to chopping wood and cook-
ing for the rest of my life? No, mother.
I'm a sophomore now and I know more
than I did once. I am going to, marry
Bob and father is going to agree to it
too."
Alice looked at her mother sternly.
"See your hands, blistered and hard.
You creep out and chop wood every
time I turn my back. Look at my
hands." She held up slender fingers.
"Nice things to carry back to the col-
lege this fall! Now, I'm going out to
'chop enough to get dinner with." And.
pulling a shade hat over her eyes, Alice
walked out into the hot harvest sun
and picked up the ax.
Straight up to the new brooder house
she vent and with a neat swing of the
ax began battering up the brooder
house door. In a few moments the
door had disappeared and in its stead
on the ground near by lay a neat pile
of stove wood. Still not quite satisfied,
Alice looked about her. A hayracl-
lay on the ground waiting for the aft-
ernoon trip to the oat field. A few
firm blows from the broad of the ax.
and the side boards showed signs of
weakening. Half a dozen clever cuts
with the blade, and the boards dropped
to the ground. In five minutes the
pil of wood by the brooder house was
augmented by a pile. of heavy sticks.
and before Mrs. HInmihrey could catch
breath to inquire the source a brisk
bla.e I:; lted uip the front of the- old
ecolk!frn stove.
A little after 12 Mr. IHumphr'4y ap
pe~rea at the door.. 4

-"mother, can you'tell me what has
happened tq the old hayrack and to-
the brooder house door?"
Mrs. Humphrey looked at Alice.
"Why why. father, I don't know.
Alice, do you know?"
Al!ce poured the steaming peas into
a china dish and then glanced at her
father. "Well," she said calmly, "you
will find part of the doo' still In the
wood box, but the last of the hayrack
is just going up the chimney.". Then
she carried the dish of peas into the
dining room and set it carefully down
on the table.
Then Mr. Humphrey began: "Alice,
if you were not grown up I'd send you
to bed for two days."
Alice squared her shoulders, looking
Into her father's eyes with an expres-
sion str-eng:dy' like his own. "Father,"
.he sail, "you are not fair. You give
your men the best sort of implements
with which to do their work. You keep
the horses and cattle in buildings that
are for thehr g-eatest comfort, but you
expect mth.er and me to find our own
means for doing work that neither of
us is strong enough to do and to live in
a building that scorches us In summer
and 't-freezes us in winter. To say the
least, you are not fair."
The great veins swelled in Mr. Hum-
Ihrey's forehead, and he took a single
step toward Alice and then stopped as
If controlling himself by a physical
effort .
".lilce." he said. "I forbid you to de-
stroy any more of my property. Just
how to punish you for what you have
:lroadvy done I don't know. I shall wait
nnt1l tonight."
That afternoon Alice was left alone,
as l]'r mother was called away to see a
sick n'igihor. For awhile she sat
qu'e!ly, the-i suddenly she flushed a lit-
ole. F'" <;-.vn the road she could see


but, you see, he lives in Louisville."
Alberta turned her head ever so
slightly. The people back of her who
had been annoyed at Mr. Smart's in-
considerateness when he first came In
were talking.
"And be leaves for the south tomor-
row. Fancy arriving In fascinating
old New York one day and leaving it
the next! Ma says she'll warrant he
has a sweetheart in Louisville, for he's
dead set on going there immediately.
This morning on deck just before we
sailed into the harbor"- But "ma,"
who was from Chicago and full of
western enterprise, finished the sen-
tence for herself.
"I came on him unexpectedly, and
what d'ye think he was doing? Lean-
ing over the rail and looking at a pic-
ture in his watch. 'Ah-ha, Mr. Har-
vey!' I cried. 'You're caug~ t at last!
Will you let me see her plcTure?' 'In
a few moments I'll show you the
statue of Liberty Instead,' said he,
closing hIs watch softly and unstrap-
ping his field glasses. And, would you
believe it, the winning sweetness of his
smile took all the sting out of his re-
fusal."
"Why don't you strike for him,
I Maud&e,_nd cut the Louville girl


($


This architect business Is slow in startl-
ing, but I've got enough to keep the pot
boiling. I'm on my way out to the
Scotts' summer home now. They want
me to plan an addition for them. But
tonight .I'm coming back to tell your
father that we are going to be married
at once."
Alice shook her head a little fearful-
ly. "No, Bob, dear," she said. "I can't
leave mother that way, and I want to
finish college first. No; father has got
to change. There is ho sense In his act-
ing so to such a dear as you."
Bob grinned appreciatively as he
drew her to him, but he lost none of his
look of determination. "That's all very
well, Alice, darling, but I've a few
rights, and after supper I'm coming
back and read the riot act to your fa-
ther."
Alice sighed. Then she nodded her
head. "Yes, come back. I don't know
just how, but some way I'm going to
shameatheri' ,.,
"Don't you worry," said Bob' "ril
fix him."
As Bob disappeared Alice's glance
wandered toward the broad stump of a
tree that stood in the dooryard. As she
looked her eyes lighted with a mis-
chievous smile. Then she began her
preparations for supper. In a short
time she appeared in the yard with two
covered dishes in her hands. These she
placed on the top of the old stump
where the sun blazed down on their
shining covers. Then she returned to
the house to set the table.
The hay wagon rattled into the yard.
"Well," called Mr. Humphrey, seeing
Alice in the door, "isn't supper ready?"
Alice looked anxiously toward the old
stump. "I'm afraid things have not be-
gun to boll yet," she answered.
Mr. Humphrey looked at the strange
array of utensils, on the stump. "Al-
ice," he said, "what nonsense is this?"V
"It means just this," answered Alice
bravely. "You refuse to buy wood for
us, and this noon you forbade me to
destroy any more of your property. So
when it came time to get supper the
stump seemed the hottest place at
hand, and I put .the vegetables out
there to let nature take its course. It
is much easier for me."
Mr. Humphrey stood in silence. Al-
ice watched him anxiously. Slowly the
angry flush died away, and the corners
of his mouth twitched. He turned to
the man who had been an interested
spectator.
"Jim," he said, "you might as well
finish up the old hayrack. Split up
enough wood to get supper with."
Then he walked into the house with
never so small a twinkle in his eyes.
That evening, as Alice and her father
sat on the steps waiting for Mrs. Hum-
phrey's return, Mr. Humphrey broke
the silence.
A "I've been thinking It over, Alice,"
te said. "and-and-well. I guess fa-
ther bhas been nelienit of his two
girls. You see, I didn't i'ealize how
hard some things are for women folks.
Now,,do you suppose you could plan a
-a porch or a-a window or sonle-
,thing?" he asked vaguely. "A1nd we'll
surprise your mother on her birthday."
For a moment there was silence;
'then he heard a low sob beside him.
He reached out an awkward hand and
drew his daughter toward him.
"Why, little girl," he said, "I didn't
know it meant so much to you."
Alice nestled against his shoulder.
"It means more than a porch," she
sobbed; "It means that, after all, you
are nice, like other fathers."
Mr. Humphrey cleared his throat.
"And I've been thinking, Alice," he
went on, "that I've been hard on Bob.
A rough old fellow like me gets preju-
diced against these college chaps.
When you finish school and Bob gets
a state well. you'll find that father
wants you to be happy after all."

We6n, now she was in the way to
bhve it all. This month'g visit with
her auut In New York had been fecund
in results. Dances and dinners, sup-
pers, theater parties, had filled the
hurrying days and nights, but still,
with her aunt's. worldly insistence, she
had found time to engage herself to
the man l5eslde her. "Capital, my
dear!" her aunt had said'when she heard
the news, kissing her lightly on the
cheek. "You see. Alberta. I knew what
I was doing when I sent for you to
come up from that poverty stricken
Kentucky, and you had only to come
to conquer. Of course Mr. Smart isn't
exactly a paragon of beauty, and he's
a bit 'new,' but think of his cool little
million, his yacht, his horses, his splen-
did motor and all that sort of thing.
Oh, I'll be proud of you yet, my poor
little southern niece!"
"Beastly stupid play!" broke in upon
Alberta's reverie. Mr. Smart spoke in
a voV a trifle Juder than conven-
tiona rgdod-ofoin m ows. -
The girl lifted her eyebrows slightly
and then nodded her head in indiffer-
ent acquiescence. As a matter of fact,
she hadn't noticed a sinclie bit of "busi-
ness" on the boards nor heard a single
line. Now, however, she raised her
glasses. It gave her right hand some
occupation. It had been lying peril-
ously close to his, she observed.
During the second act the man fidg-
.ted more than ever. "Come," he said
finally; "don't let's waste any more
time or. such twiddle twaddle. It's.
weal, tommyrot. We'll run up and or-
der out supiper Instead."
But a girl with an ermine cloak
thrown over the back of her chair was
leaning forward, her elbows resting on
her knees,'her chin in the cup of her
two hands. Her eyes were strangely
wistful as she watched the players on
the stage.
"No," she whispered oddly without
turning to Smart; "I like it. Let's
stay."
'Twas a simple enough little scene'
that she watched; a homely enough
setting, too-a lane hedged with wild
roses and honeysuckle, at one end of
which stood a white cottage, sunny in
the light of early morning. J-ust out-
side, by the hollyhock bushes, was a
man fair and strong, looking like a
young god In his splendid strength. He
was catching up a child playfully and
holding it high in thle air, as is the way
with proud fathers. Then out of the
cottage, rosy, smiling, came a girlish
figure with her sleeves rolled up and
an apron on, to say goodby to her lord
.before he went to his day's labor. The
sire kissed his child and set him down,
patting the curly head. Then he drew
the woman to him. "Goodby, and God
bless you, dear, till I come home tod-
night," he said in a voice softened with
reverence.
There were actual tears In Alberta's
-yes. emrely as wais the setting, aim-
ple' as. was the scene, it had brought to
her a revelation. After. all, that was
the real sum of life, was it uoi, dear
God-love and a home and a.clear, 4.i-
bartered conscience?
"Well, If you still want to atay, I'm
going out for a whisky and soda,"
Smart laughed unctuously, laying Lea
heavy band on hers .as the curtain,
,dropped on the second act. "You don't
seem up to conversation tonight. I
might as well have taken your aunt out
--old lady's a corker when talk's scarce!
If I'm n6t back by the time the cur-
tain goes up don't get frightened. I'll
be here before the blooming' thing's
over."
As he was turning out in the aisle un-
consciously even to herself Alberta's
eyes swept him from head to foot-
shambling physique, obtrusive jewels
and all. She shuddered involuntarily,
pressing his ring which she wore rath-
er sharply into her flesh.
Oh, if only the orchestra would play
that "Spring Song" of Mendelssohn's!
She had been trying so hard to shut
Robert Harvey out from her life, ant.
this fetched him so vividly before her!
But, if I live with Idas, then we two
On the low earth shall prosper, hand In
hand--
Those were the words from Stephen
Phillips' "Marpessa" which Harvey
had been wont to set to that jiusic, say-
ing, "They seem to be mate for each
other-Just like you and I, sweetheart."
How ever in the world had she made
herself able to give him up? It was
her cursed love of luxury, she told her-
self, and what would luxury profit her
without him? What a fool she had
been! But the worst was yet to do.
Tomorrow she was to write the letter
which was to stab his dear heart like
a knife.

the "plebe" would say: "Gentlemen, I

found out what was in progress and
sent for the "plebe," and then, before
official authority, he announced, "I can .

that the "plebe" had been a prize fight-
er before entering the academy.

The Philosophy of Thunder.
Thunder Is caused by the lightning
spark heating the air In Its-path, caus-
ing sudden expansion and compression
all around, followed by as sudden a
rush of air into the partial vacuum
thus produced. If the spark be straight
and short the clap will be short and
sharp; if Its path be a long and crook-
ed one a succession of sounds, one aft-
er the other, with a characteristic rat-
tle, will be heard, followed by the
echoes from other clouds.. The echoes
have a rolling and rumbling sound.

ihr soft evening gown swept quietly
tlown the Atisle and took the seat indi-

Mechanically the girl drew out her

did not use them. Instead, with a lit-
tle sigh of content, she leaned back
against her wrap, a gorgeous thing,
ermine lined, belonging to her aunt,
which she had been coaxed into wear-
ing. The lights of the house were low,
and as she leaned for a second, a bil-
lowy mass of chiffon and lace against
the ermine, her heavily lashed eyelids
half closed, and she smiled faintly.

Trees That Form Islandsi,
In the course of great rivers, islands
Arl generally formed by the stranding
of trees, shrubs, plants and such things
brought down by the current. In the
MackenzIe. rhver of Cannda the whole
process of land making in :h's way can
be easily observed. Tree. borne down
from the tanks by the und"'riiui.ng ac.
tion of the current usuit;ily irCai coL-

tangled in their re)ts. 'They, l:.('refore.

&if le i-yniKs, x'hllIh ,ffnue converts
Into reguiir vegetable is'anNds. Then a
thicket of snmal vwiiiows covIvrs the
ltewly formed land and their fibous
rots serve to hlnd the whole firmly to-
gether. A peaty soil Is formed by the
gradual decay of the vegetation, includ-
ing the trunks of the trees, and on this
many new varieties of plants spring
up. Sometimes the island clears its
moorings and floats away down stream
until It is again arrested by an obsta-
cle, or it may become in a sense water-
logged and subside close to the bottom.
In this latter case It often gets covered
over with mud and sand, which form
a new and more permanent land sur-
face above it.
The Lobster's Birth Name.
"Did you ever see the name a lob-
iter is born with?" asked a fish dealer
the other day. "It is marked on his
Body. No? Well, I'll show you one."
The dealer took a live lobster out of
heap on the marble slab.
"Its name Is Joe," the dealer saId
after he had Inspected one of Its legs.
. "Now, can you find it?"
SThe customer took the lobster gin-
gerly by the back of the neck, where


It could not reach his hand with its ulp-
pera. Turning It on Its brck so that
the brown legs at its side flopped back-
ward, a smooth streak half an Inch
long and nearly as wide was seen on
the- inside of the thigh. In this streak,
like a mosaic, were short lines, as
though some one bad printed on It with
Indelible brown ink in backhand the
characters J-O-E.
"Some lobsters are named Jim," the
dealer sald, "some Jack, others John.
and I once clearly made out the name
Julia."
The Trap Shot.
frap shooting has made America a
land of straight shooters, and no coun-
try In the world can compare with the
United States In shooting. Gun clubs
In America are directly responsible for
* thai reputation which Uncle Sam so
proudly -bears. By constant practice
at inanhitate targets the American un-
eonsclously "prepares himself for his
conritry.'s call to arms. Gun clubs are
tnally the outcome of the abundance
of live game in Armerica. The average
business man loves to tl~ad the woods
In search of live game, but usually his
time to go on these hunting trips Is
limited to perhaps once a year, and
during the interval he has lost his
".hooting eye."- He needed practice to
kc.?p his -eye keyed, up properly, and
Fi or&er to g'et practice at home during
rp.Ire n:oments he organized the gun

Moliere, Scott and Homer,
"As Mollere never had the heart to
draw a jealous woman among all his
pictures of men who knew, like him-
self, the torments of Jealousy, so Scott
never had the heart to draw a young
and beautiful woman who is wicked,"
writes Andrew Lang. "This ancIent
familiar source of patenant interest he
passes by, out of his great chivaitry.
There was nothing to prevent him from
writing a romance on the passionate,
wretched tale of the once beautiful
Ulrica in 'Ivanhoe,' a fair traitress
driven on the winds of revenge, treach-
ery and parricide. Here was a theme
for a 'realistic' novel of England after
the conquest, but Scott sketches it
lightly as a Thyestean horror in the
background. In his work such a piece
of 'realism' stands alone, like the story
of Phoenix in Homer's work (In the
ninth .book of the 'Iliad'). Both artists,
Scott and Homer, had a sense of rever-
ence for human things. They did not
lack the Imagination necessary for the


portrayal of the evil and terrible, but
they did not seek success in that popu-
lar region."
Huxley and Lewes.
Here Is an anecdote once related by
Herbert Spencer-who, by the way,
was rather heavy In hand when he
undertook to play story teller. Apropos
of Huxley's humor he described a din-
ner of distinguished authors:
Over their cigarettes they fell to dis-
cussing their various methods of com-
mencing to write. One said he wrote
and wrote; tore up, then wrote again,
and so on.
George Lewes, who was present,
looked surprised, and then cried out:
"Oh, I'm not like that! I commence
to write at once, directly the pen is in
my hand. In fact, I boll at a low tem-
perature."
"Indeed,h cut In Mr. Huxley, "that
Isa very Interesting, for, as you know,
to boll, at a low temperature implies a
vacuum in the upper region."
Lewes himself was the first to lead
the shout of laughter which of course
greeted this clever repartee.

Modest Claims Often Carry the Most
Conviction.
When Maxim, the famous gun invent-
or placed his gun before a committee of
judges, lie stated Its carrying power to t.c
much lielow what lie felt sure the gun
would accomplish. Tne result of the. tri-
al was therefore a great surprise, instead
of disappointment. It is the same within
the maoufacturers of Chambeilaini's Col-
ic, Cholera mnd Diarrhoea Remedy. They
do notipublicly boatt of all th s remedy
wil! accomplish, but prefer to let the us-
ers make the statements. What they do
claim, is that it will positively 'cure diar-
rhoea, dysentery, pains in the stomach
and bowels and has never been known to
fail. For rale by all medicine dealers.


TO DISCUSS NEW
MEAT INSPECTION LAW.
The plans for putting into effect the
new federal meat intp- action law will
be discussed in Chicago this week by
Secretary Wilson of the department
of agrieilturne and superintendents of
inspection from varions packing house
centers. The secretary may visit other
cities ti look into the methods to be
pnrsuedi in enforcing the new law.
The Africain Ostrich.
The African ostrich, from which the
best white feathers are obtained,
stands six or seven feet high and
weighs from 80 to 100 pounds. Its egg
Is equal to about two dozen lens' eggs.
Its feathers sell In Africa for about
$2D) a pound at wholesale. While
walking quietly its step is about twen-
ty-six inches, but when frightened the
stride increases to about twelve feet,
and at this gait it can run something
like twenty-five miles an hour. When
pursued it sometimes turns and deals
the pursuer a blow with tho- foot that
makes him think of the kick of a mule.
The African ostrich is the largest bird
now existing on earth. The American
ostrich is only about half the size of
the African and has three toes, while
the African bird has only two. The
plumage of the American ostrich is
gray.

Tihe First Man Dressnimtker.
The first male celebrity who made
his mark as a dres;miaker was Ithom-
berg, the son of a Bavarian peasant
from the neighborhood of Munich. One
day in the month of May, 1730, a beau-
tiful equipage was seen driving about
Paris with an escutcheon lu the shape
of a corset and an open pair of scissors
in the middle painted on the panel of
each door. That was Rhomberg's coat
of arms, and, it told its own tale. IHe
was a genius in his way and owed his
success chiefly to his skill in disguis-
Ing slight deformities and bringing out
the most attractive 'charms of his fair
customers. He rapidly mnd& a fortune
and left his heirs an annual Income of
50,000 francs. Under (be first empire
and the restoration Leroy supplied the
dresses of the ladies of the court and
the higher nobility from his splendid
mansion In the Rue Richelieu. An ef-
fusive encomium was written upon
him by Auger, a member of the acad-
emy.
Fulminate of Mercury.
A peculiarity of fulminate of mer-
cury Is that It produces a shock to
which all other substances are sensi-
tive, and Its supreme value ns an ex-
plosive rests in this fact and in the
known liability of all explosives to be
detonated by more or less distant ex-
plosions. There is a current of sympa-
thetic influence in these terrible chem-
ical compositions that Is as strange as
It is dangerous. What is required to
produce explosion is the rapid genera-
tion of great heat along with large
quantities of oxygen. In gunpowder,
for instance, the nitrate of potash
(saltpeter), which is the chief ingre-
dient, Is practically imprisoned oxygen,
and when it is decomposed along with
charcoal an immense heat is developed,
which causes the gases to expand sud-
denly; hence explosion,

Health Crnmea.
The pursuit of health, like the mor-
phia habit or drunkenness, grows on
people till It really becomes a vice.
Continuous thought and anxiety about
one's health is extremely bad for the
constitution and undermines It quicker
than port wine.-London Queen.

Helmingham Hall Is the seat of Lord
Tollemache in Suffolk, about eight
miles from Ipswich. The existing
drawbridge has been raised every night
for the past 300 years, and the preonut
owner does not allow the custom to
become obsolete. Another fine( exam-

papers is sure to know of the wonderful
I cures made by Dr.
j, Kilmer's Swamp-Root,
J g I) the great kidney, 1ieer
and bladder remedy,
U. [ ( r It is the great mzdi-
Scal triumph of the nine-
tecaith century; dis-
covered after years of
scientific research by
Dr. Kilmer, the emi-
nent kidney and blad-
der specialist, and is
wonderfully successful in promptly curing
lame back, kidney, bladder, uric acid trcu-
bles and Bright's Disease, which is the worst
form of kidney trouble.
Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root is not rec-
ommended for everything but if you have kid-
ney, lhver or bladder trouble it will be found
just the remedy you need. It has been tested
in sc many ways, in hospital work, in private
practice, among the helpless too poor to pur-
chase relief and has proved so successful in
every case that a special arrangement has
been made by which all readers of this paper
who have not already tried it, may have a

when it is re.l s that the nerve centers

ho\. There is a want of harmony In the
action of the muscles which move the
eyeballs. Consequently instead of both
eyes being focused simultaneously on
an object one eye receives an impres-
sion ifidependently of the other. The
.two impressions are communicated to
the brain, and the object Is therefore
seen twice. The inflamed condition and
loss of energy In the brain centers from
overdoses of alcohol also account for
the staggering gait of an Intoxicated

HOW THEY CELEBRATED
THE FOURTH AT WEsAPFO.
Correspondence of the Buos.
Dear Buoy: As the people of tihis
cud of the Bay could not veiy well
get to the Bg Celebration at IPaamaa
City, they gathered en mass at We-
tappe, where the Dyers threw their
commodious house wide open for the
enjoyme-t of everyone.
The people came on foot, and in
buggies, wagons and boats-seven
sailboats and a launch, with ar,
abundance of good things to eat,
which were qprea;l at intervals upon
a stand erected for thie occasion, All
were made welcome.
The services consisted iii sociable
conversations, vocal and instrumental
inutic, boat racing, dancing, etc.
There were violins, guitar, niandolin,
piano, a large graphophone and tniUsle
boxes and plenty of musicians to op-
erate them.
As a matter of course, Satanu ap-
peared alho-nmanifested by controll-
ing tlie- actions and language of a
few; but was soon caAt behind and
forgotten in the sociable and pleasant
itune which lasted until daylight of
the morning of the 5th.
There were live boats entered to,
race and in the Irui of several miles
in a brissk breeze, there was les-s i4thln
five minutes difference in the first
anid last boat to reach thie hiohe
stake, making it a most interesting
Iract,. Harry Allan's very staunch
and elegant new b')at. as was expect-
ed, took the lead. Jos. D;er's new
boat v as not quite finiished, or there
singht have been a different tale to,
tell.
The schooner, Cuba met a slight,
accidlent-in' making the laucinmg
from the. race the wharf drove the
anchor through thie how.
it is con celded by all who have at-
tended at the difle:oent times in the
past, thiat, for a ieal go.,d, sociable,
pleasmiIt and enj.,yable celebration,
theie is ,no place like Wetappo.

COWS IN HOLLAND.

In No Other Place In the World Are
They Given Such Care.
In Holland cows are to a certain
extent a part of the family, for one
member of the family always sleeps in
the stable to watch, and often the
place is made a sort of family sitting
room.
The cow stable is generally a large
building, paved with brick, upon waicll
the cows lie, straw being scarce. Thec.e
is a brick paved passage down the
center, at one end of which is a fire-
place, and the windows are covered
with white curtain as dainty as those
lised inl the house proper.
Sometimes the entire family will
gather in the stable In the evenings,
enjoying the warmth of the fire and
exchanging the talk of the day, while"
the cattle, always placed with their
hbads facing the central passage, chew
their cuds and almost seem to enjoy
the num:an companionship. These cows
are seldom brown, most of them being
black or white or of the -two colors
mixed, and because of the fertility of
the pasturage and the care taken In
their keep they are capable of giving
large yields of rich milk. In no place
in the worhIl are" cows -made inmuch
of, and from" the annual yield'of but-
ter it would seem that the care is not
taken in vain.
What He Did to "Hamlet."#
A group of actors at the Players'
club were once engaged in a discus-
sion as to the ability and impartiality,
of certain professional critics of the
drama, when Maurice Barrymore re-
ferred to a certain Denver journalist
who was widely known for his dra-
matic criticisms. "Hayward," said
Mr. Barrymore, "was certainly one of
thire ablest of them. lie wrote most
learnedly, with the keenest analysis
of every phase of the actor's art, an-d.
above all, with no little wit. I am just
reminded of what was perhaps the
briefest dramatic criticism ever
penned. It will probably outlive
everything else Hayward did. It ran
about as foll)owvs:

WOMEN'S WEAR IN WARTIME
Homemade Cloth of Matny Kinds.
Scraped Horn For Huts.
We had one cotton mill to spin the
warp. The people stood in line to get
a bunch of cotton for warp. The filling
was yarn, cotton,", flax and tow. We
got -our dyestuff from the forest. It
was almost as bad on timber as the
taubark trad! is now. Tlere was great
rivalry among the women to see who
could have the prettiest dress. -I have
a quilt made of cotton and linen callleJ
a "Confederate" quilt.
The clothing for every member of the
family was made from the raw ma-
terial, carded, spun, woven, dyed and
made with homespun thread.
The tow linen cloth had one peculiar-
Ity. It was a great stretcher. It was
often exchanged for other tLings. A
man and his wife started to town with
cloth suntlilent to get some articles. On.
the way he remembered lie needed a
gimlet also. Hle told his wife. They
decided to tie the ends of the cloth
to two saplitngs, he to stretch a gim-
let out of it.
1 took great interest in the silk in-
dustry. We fed the worms on mul-
berry leaves, anu such beautiful silk
we did have. A bright stripe in a cot-
to-, dress made it very fine. A family
made gloves, beautiful silk mitts, with
bees embroidered on the back. Noth-
ing went to waste. The thorn trees
furnished us pins and hairpins. Our
millinery was our crowning effort.
Hats were made of cotton thread cro-
cheted, p-t on a block, stretched very
stiff and ironed, then wired. We had
honmeade flowers aud all kinds of ma-
terlial for trimming. A cloth frame
made stiff and covered with scraped
cow's horn was much admired, if It
did look like a cocoanut cake.-Char-
lotte (N. C.) Observer.

FOOD VALUE OF BANANAS.
They Are Not, Lik Soame FruitM,
Good Only For rTheir Flavor.
Professors of dietetics tell us that
the banana is not, as many fruits are
a flavor and, nothing .nore, but a food
and a source .of'real nutriment. It is
at onc-e useful and delicious. It not
only gratifies" the palate, but supplies
matorital for combustion and the main-
tunance of animal heat. while It also
b.n;ls up the muscles and repairs the
worn nnd thrlrei(bare nerves.
Thel flurn made from it in its dried
utate is equal in nutritive value to rice.
Driod and sprinkled with sugar, a
form in which it has beln ,ecently
introduced in this country, the upstart
banana is, weight for weight, as nu-
tritious as the venerable fig.
But it Is in the fresh state that the
banana chiefly appeals to us. Its
creamy succulence and delicate odor
are inviting, and its pleasant sapor is
a prelude to good digestion. Dependent
as that sapor is in ethereal body, which
the coal tar investigators have not yet
been able to imitate by chemical es-
somnce, it is a subtle stimulus to all
subsequent elementary procet seA. A.ld
thus it is that the banIna Is an emi
neatly digestible food. No sense of
oppl)ression or drowsiness follows a
meal of it, and a me;:; of it may be
bulky enough.- Pall Mall Gazette

Bings' Bargain

By
SLAURA ALTON PAYNE

Copyright, 1905, by McClturc, Phillips & Co.
S0
"What dat, Bings?" cooed the dim-
pled cherub, patting the bald spot that
spread like a small shining desert in
an oasis of thick blond hair on Bings'
well shaped head.
Whitlock grinned.
"Mamma's pet mustn't be naughty,"
said the pretty widow, turning her
brown eyes apologetically on Bings.
"Come to mamma, dearie. Mr. Bings
isn't used to babies."
But the dimpled cherub, otherwise
Baby Moffatt, who had purposely and
after many backslidings climbed upon
the rustic seat occupied by Bings, for
whom she had evinced a declded par-
tiality from the start, only snuggled


the closer to the secretly delighted
Bings and cooed, "'Baby 'ove Bings,"
then as a happy afterthought, "Mam-
ma 'ove Bings," at which frank and
wholly unexpected revelation of her
small daughter the pretty widow's face
rivaled Bings'.
Whitlock guffawed. "Now's your
chance, Bings," he urged, with mali-
cious levity at his rival's discomfiture.
But Bings, with a hasty adieu, fled,
leaving the cherub disconsolate.
Bings metaphorically kicked himself
all the way home for not taking ad-
vantage of the best opportunity he had
ever had, even if It was before the
sneering Whitlock, and for his cow-
ardly desertion of the pretty widow to
Whitlock's caustic raillery.
Biugs paused at his own gate and
gazed miserably at the big silent house.
He shut his eyes a moment and imag-
ined he saw the pretty widow and the
cherub sittiln on the front porch. It
was a blissful vision, but Biugs felt
that it would never become a blissful
reality unless a miracle happened.
Bings was a bachelor, Bings was big
and blond and bald, Bings was bash-
ful-in fact, Bings was a whole swarm
of "B's." Hie narrowly escaped being
a beauty, with his baby complexion
and innocent blue eyes. His size was
the only thing that saved him from this
terrible fate. Moreover, Blungs was a
bargain fiend. No woman could scent
a bargain sale farther off than could
Billy Bings. Incidentally Billy was
the climax to Bings' woes. But no per-
suasion on his part could convince his
friends of the absurdity of calling a
six footer Billy.
Bings' bachelorhood was a condition
of neither birth nor achievement-It
was thrust upon him. During his evo-
lution into that state there had been
any one of a dozen maids and widows
that Bings would have been only too
hm a fn hm rm Va n-Ma with ho f him


wo"ldly goods but for,-his excessive
bashfulness. Never yet had he been
able to screw his courage up to the
point of proposal, though he had made
almost superhuman efforts In that di-
rection.
This seemed a pity, for Bings was
undeniably cut out for a Benedict. He
thought all women angels and all
babies cherubs.
As he started uptown on the mo-
mentous morning after his precipitate
flight Bings had a particular cherub in
mind-a pretty, brown eyed, dimpled
cherub that he would have given half
he was worth to possess and the other
half to possess the cherub's pretty,
brown eyed mother. But so far every
glance from Mrs. Jessie Moffitt's ro-
guish eyes bad produced the nnfortu-
nate effect of Instantaneous paralysis
of poor Blngs' tongue, so that he could
only stand dumb or blush and stam-
mer like any silly schoolboy.
This was not the first time by any
means'that Bings had performed that
metaphorical feat. It had been at least
a semiweekly occurrence for several
months past. Each time Bings vowed
that the next time he would not act
the fool. But he did. ITe had reached
the point where the inevitable mental
feat was copiously punctuated with a
vigorous ejaculation that would have
shocked the pretty widow had she
heard it.
Bings felt his helplessness bitterly.
So absorbed was he in this thought as
he picked his way along the shady
street that he failed to observe the
widow a block or so ahead of him. A
deep gloom enveloped Bings' soul that
bright June morning.
"Confound It!" he muttered. "If
something doesn't happen soon I'll"-

It was not the first time that Corson
bad wished Grandmad Bradley never
had been born to leave a recipe book

one onil the train to recognize himni and
pass the story on.
For a moment he contemplated send
ing the bottle by express, but the ap
pearanfie of the train prevented that,
and, assuming as much dignity as hi<,

Bings' exasperated gaze encountered t; '1
that of Mrs. Marston, a menrry fwe .-a -
woman. By her side stood the pretty
widow with the coveted cherub clig-
ing to hler hand.
Bings turned fiery red and caught \ j \a/
wildly at his hat, or where he suopposel


i# to be, only to find that lie was faun-
ning himself with it. Making au em-
barrassed bow, he began to mop his
perspiring face violently.
"Here's- yer p'ramb'lat'r," said' Sam
laconically, pausing in front of Bings.
I Bings turned fascinated eyes on the
'thing, which seemed to him to have
greatly Increased in size during its
progress from the auctioneer's stand.
"And a baby's high chair," announced
another laughing voice as the speaker
craned forward and inspected Bing3'
barricade.
There was a general craning of necks.
"And a little red rocker," exclaimed
another.
"A doll-and a doll carriage."
"A child's cot."
"Footstool, workbasket, sewing chair
and, sewing machine," enumerated
Whitlock, pushing nearer. "Great Ju-
piter, Bings! What-does this mean?"
with mock severity.
Poor Bnlugs thanked his stars that
none of them knew of that cradle in
the attic, the result of a former aberra-
tion. He gazed helplessly around at
his tormentors, then at his barricade.
What on earth had induced him to bid,
In all that stuff?
He had made himself so ridiculous In
her eyes he'd not stand a ghost of a
show now. The only thaig left for him
to do was to make his escape as best
he could.
Bings glanced furtively around, but
all avenues were closed by laughing
faces. He grew desperate. Just as he
was contemplating a dash for liberty
along the line of the least resistance
the miracle that he had been so skep-
tical about happened.
A fractious horse, a woman's scream,
a scene of confusion, and *hen Bings
came to he found his arms around the
pretty widow, who was clasping the
pretty cherub to her breast and sob-
bing hysterically on his shoulder: "Oh,
Billy-dear, dear Billy! Save me, save
me!"
At these Inspiring words Bings' cour-
age rose to the occasion, his bashful-
ness slipping from him like a cloak.
Before the astonished eyes of the whole
staring crowd he bent and kissed the
pretty widow and the dimpled cherub.
"There, there, sweetheart," he said
soothingly, "the danger is past." Then,
turning to the gaping crowd, Bings
lied magnificently.
"I was just golng to explain," said
he, "when that confounded horse In-
terfered, that I bought these things for
my wife and child. The fact is"-
"Mr. Bings!" protested a shocked but
smothered voice.
"Mrs. Moffatt and I expect to be
married just a week from today, and
I take this occasion to Invite"-
"Billy Bings! How dare you?"
-"the whole crowd to attend. The
fact is"-the sight of Whitlock's amaz-
ed and wholly skeptical countenance
stimulated Bings to greater invention
-"we would have announced our en-
gagement sooner but for certain un-
foreseen circumstances that-er-caus-
ed us to-er- await a more propitious
time. But"-
"Oh, Billy. hush!"
-"after next Thursday we'll be at

passengers. They shouted with glee,
all except Eunice, who rose with white
lips and made her way to the next car'.
Corson stood the chaff as long as he
could, but at last the mau's persistence
won, and. wut} ti;flaing faco, he follow-
ed the girl.
There was a vatiant seat beside hler,
and Corson took it. She moved over

"Surely I shonud have the right to
defend myself.." e ipi.ea'1id. "I am Ig-
norant of my ctensc."'
This time she noticed him. With
S:asbing eyes i;he turned to face him.
"If you persist In speaking to me." she
said firmly, "I shall appapal to the man
hi the car to rid me of your very un-
pleasant attentions."
In her intensity she spoke more dis-
tinctly than she knew, and a brawny
hand shot across the aisle and shook
Corson's shoulder. "See here, young
fellow," warned a hoarse voice. "You
quit mashin' or off you go, and I won't
be particular as to whether we are at
a station when you get off, either."
Corson looked helplessly at the girl,
but her face was adamant except when
she thanked her companion with a
smile. It Is evident that there was no
appeal to her, and Cors-n wisely con-
cluded to let the argument wait until
a better time.
It was hard, though, to sit quietly be-
side the girl lie had proposed to five
days before and be denied even the
right to make an appeal. He could
imagine nothing except his appearance

Xewfoundland came rushing up the
ttrebt to welcome his mistress and.
'erceiving a friend in Corson, threw
is huge bulk against that young man.
There vwa. an exclamation as the
brute dislod-ged the bottle In Corson's
arms, tind the dog went flying up the
street alarmed at the noise.


At the sounl Eunice turned, her face
flaming with anger, in belief that Cor-
;on ha'l struck the dog, but the bottle
it his feet told its own story, and she
;lanced curiously at the dark, viscous
1a.:id slowly creep!ug across the side-
Sval'-. There .was a familiar pdor .ja

her nostrif"s, and' the ex'pfessiou in hei
face turned from anger to umirth as sbe
came toward him.
"Why. Jimnmie Corson," she cried.
"was that really some of your grand-
mother's cough sirmp':"
"It was," h t-onfirmed. "I was out
to visit Aunt Ik'+sy. and she made me
bring iu the winter supply." .
"I had forgotten she lived out cf
town." she laughed. "and I thought it
vwas wh:skNy. Why didn't you tell t.e?""
"A lot of chances 'i gave me." he
'.c:ared in an inj"'redt tone' "How
-oui! lI t,-lI you that I was more sinned
igain;st t! ,'n sinning wxrm yolk ai'ac:.;t

"WYil you forgive mne'?" she asked
'oft'y. coming closer.
"Ou one condition." he bargained-
"that you say 'Yes' to the question I
",sked you Wednesday."
"You saiml then you would give mte a
week." she pleadedd.
"'ircunstnt;;nccs alter cases." he de-
areed. "Is it 'Yes?'
It must have been, for Corson said
"Darling!" so impulsrcely that it reach-
ed the ears of the giant, who had
drawn apart in 'the faint hlcr that
there might yet be an excuse for break-
ing the little dude in pieces, and as he
wandered back to the car his senti-
ments were anything but the "bless
you, my children," appropriate to the
circumstances.
"WNoey" yCromwell.
Oliver Cromwell had a head large fn-
proportion to his body. His features
were rugged and unprepossessing. He
had three or four warts on his face,
one being on the side of his nose/ He
wore a small mustache and Imperial,
after the fashion of the times. His
complexion was bronzed by exposure
to the sun, and he had a fiery red nose
of generous proportions that gave rise
to many nicknames, "The Almighty
Nose," "Nosey," "The Copper Nosed
Saint," '"ll1s Noseship" and "Rosy
Nose" being among the least complI-
anpi1ter.
