Tilda Dale came up into the moun-

the clans of the Doanes and the Hack-
etts were at peace. Not a man on
either side had been killed or wounded
for five long years. They passed each
other -on the highway, they niet eachl
other in the village, and they sat al-
most side by side in the log church ohf

Doane ceased hils visits to the sch;vioi

week when one gray afternoon a she
walked alone up the mountain side to
gather the ripening chestnuts she siaw

she stood there looking and woiderilg

disappeared among the lanrels. Twen-
ly minutes later she knew that a horse
ridden by one of the Hackett partisans
had been killed in its tracks.
The girl could have told, but she
didn't. Even when the Hacketta
charged her lover with the crime and
had him arrested and confined in jail
for examination she spoke no word ex-
cept to him. From that hour she was
thinking and planning. Her face was
still gentle, but her scholars noticed
that It had taken on a new lock of de-

Of a certain' Wednesday down in the
*town at the foot of the mountain
James Donne was to be brought before
a justice of the peace for preliminary
examination. Each and every one of
the Doanei was there. Each and eV-'
ery one of the Hackettg was there.
Each partisan for five miles around
was there. When the justice saw the
size of the crowd that -had gathered
he adjourned the case from his office
to the big room In what the townspeo-
ple called their city hall. It held 200
people. Two hundred were thei'E td
till It. The .sheriff at the door had
asked each and every man who passed
to leave his weapons behind. Not a
man had obeyed. Who could say what
would happen before the examinatit
- To humiliate a boane the Hacketts
hayd insisted that the prisoner be
brought In handcuffed. Women had
asked to be aifiltted, but they were
kept out-all but one. There was no
school that (lay up in Obestnut Cove.
rhFb schoolmistress" had been subpoe-
naed as a witness, lAit no one knew
what her testimony would be. She had
come down in the buckboard of a con-
stable. She had talked with the of-
ficial long and earnestly on the way.
Before going to court he had perform-
ed an errand for her. This purchase he
had carried Into court, with the girl fit
his heels, and had placed it on a table.
When the girl took her place every one
felt that something remarkably un-
caumny was at hand. ThO Hacketts had
demanded a warrant and had a wit-
ness. He perjured himself when he
said that he saw JTames Doane do fthc
shooting and rin away. The Iustlce
was a Hackett symnlnthlzer, nud lie

shook his head. TLhre wis an uneasy
stir at this, and men muttered to each
other. It was then that Tilda Dale
rose up and returned to her place be-
side the table to tear the brown paper
off the purchase made by the con-
stable. Men looked again and still
again and drew in their breath. It was
a keg of powder, with one head out.
The girl then took from her pocket
a candle and lighted it and placed it on
the desk two feet away. Not a man In
that room *moved so much as a foot.
No one rose, no one spoke, no one look-
ed elsewhere, but straight at the girl.
"Men, I want to talk to you for a few
minutes," she began, in gentle tones,
though every word was audible back
to the door.
Then she gave a history of the
Doane-Hackett feud as she had gath-
ered the particulars. She named the
killed and wounded and the living.
She,pictured the misery and the heart-
aches. She spoke in withering scorn'
of ambushes, of cowardice, of the
burning of buildings and the maiming
of animals. There had been warrants
and summonses many times before.
Partiality had been shown by justice,
-and there had been perjury without
stint. She scored the Doanes as well
as the IIacketts. She scored the gray
haired women on either side, and no
one interrupted her. The sheriff was
there, but he did not advance upon
her. Justice, lawyers, sheriff, the
Doanes and the Hacketts were looking
at that lighted candle and keg of pow-

No one answered. The flame of the
candle was blowing uin the draft of
the window toward the keg. She
reached out and picked it up and held

The wooden boards that had marked
the graves in a certain rural cemetery:
rotted off and were raked up in the
spring cleaning. Consequently on
Memorial day when the delegation
from the G. A. R. arrived with flags
and appropriate floral decorations for
their departed comrades the decorat-
ing committee found itself somewhat
in doubt as to which gtre belonged
to Captain Blodgett apd which to
Hannah Ericson. The mistaken dele-
gates heaped their offerings upon Han-
nah's last resting place and departed.
That afternoon Ericson, the widower,
drifted, with the rest of his world, to
,.he cemetery. When he saw the flag
and the flowers above Hannah the
astonished Swede fell to chuckling
"Yell," he exclaimed delightedly,

Discouragement Is but disenchanted .
The snob cultivates a man or a Wont-
an not because he expects to get a job
or a loan out of either, but because he
thinks either can help him along Into
society'p elect. He cuts a former as-
quaintance because the unfortunate
person seems to be of no use in hie
own' social advancement. He sup-
presses the impulse that may leaa hif'
to dislike useful people and hike uM-
less ones just as the ambitious bJ nk
clerk suppresses his small extrava-
.gances, his fouduaes for the race track.

Life, Not Death.
There is much difference in the psy-
chological effect of the two ideas
"life" and "death." This was illus-
trated, says the writer of "Letters
From a-Surgeon." in the case of Gen-
eral Frank Bartlett, who was wounded
on the Fredericksburg pike in 1804.
General Bartlett was brought to the
surgeon bleeding profusely from a
wound in his head. He was uncon-
clous and white as death. The sur-
geon called his name, but could not
rouse him. Passing his finger into the
wound, he found the ball had not pene
treated the bone, but had simply cut an
artery in the scalp. This the surgeon
bound with a ligature. He laid the
general on the ground and completed
dressing the wound.
"No harm done, old boy!" he shout-
ed. "This Is only a flesh wound. You
will be all right when I take a stitch
The good news seemed to bring Gen-
eral Bartlett to consciousness. He
'1 thought I was done for," he sard.
"Well, if I'm all right, here goes."
Before the surgeon could stop him
he was in the saddle and riding at the
best gait of his horse back to the front

Origin of "Bluestockings."
Burke, apropos of "Evelina," paid
Fanny Burney this high compliment:
"We have had an age for statesmen,

age for artists, but this"-with a gal-
lant bow to Fanny-"is the age for

apology made by Mr. Stillingfleet in
declining an invitation of Mrs. Vesey's

am not properly dressed for such a
party," he pleaded. "Pho, pho," she
cried, taking him and his dress all in

Birds and Kitea.
I No bird, so far as known records
r show, has ever alighted on a kite or
e attacked one. While a scientist was
. flying a train of five kites some years
ago a large silver tipped eagle came
suddenly out of the higher .air and
swooped round and round the first kite,
Looking against the sunset sky like a
huge silver ball. As the train of kites
a was pulled in the eagle followed, visit-
l ing one kite and then another, seem-

was lost to view. While the scientist's
kites were high in the air one March
* flocks of geese flying in the wedge flew
over. They invariably stopped, broke
g up, hovered -ibove the queer object
n and at last slowly reformed and flew
away. While the larger birds all come
from heigh-ts above the kite, the small
birds of the air will alight on the

On a famous rifle range there was

Might Have Made a Killing.
A physician took it into his head to
go rabbit shooting. About 4 o'clock in
the afternoon he returned, tired out
and empty handed, telling his wife that
he hadn't killed a thing. Thereupon
she remarked: "I told you so. If you
had stayed at home and attended to
your legitimate business you might
have been more successful."-Chicago

Confused the Elevator Man.
New York elevator operators have a
dislike of the word "next."
"It is too confusing," said one man.
"For example, two men stepped Into
my car the other day. One said. 'Fifth
floor.' The other said, 'Next.' I stop-
ped at the second floor and waited and
waited for the man who had ordered
'next' to get off. lie flew into a rage.
'I don't want this floor.' he said. 'i
said the sixth floor. Didn't the other
fellow say *Fifthi," nnd didn't I sa>
"Next," and isn't sixth next after fifth?
"The following day one passenger
called ont, *Third floor,' and the othei
said 'Next' at the same time. I though',
I knew my business that time. I hus
tied the third floor man right up to hi-
landing and took the chap who wanted
'next' on to the fourth floor. lIe was
angry also. 'What did you bring m
up here for when I wasn't looking?' he
thundered. 'Didn't you hear me say
next ?' 'Yes,' said I, 'but the other map
said third'- 'I don't give a rip,' said
be. 'what the other man said. We
were then on the first floor, and when
I said next didn't that mean second
I'll report you for Inattention, that's
what I'll do.'
"And that is what he did do," sighed
the operator. "Clearly the word 'next'
ought to be abolished."-New York Sun.
The )ld Fashioned "Hired Girl."
The "hired girl" (we never, never al-
-luded to her as "the maid" In the small
American towu or quiet country place
where you and I were "raised") was
like one of the family, and mother was
glad to have her help, and none of us
put on any frills with her, and she was
not compelled to put on any frills of
cap or apron with us. Ofttimes, espe-
cially in the quiet country places, her
social standing was as good as that of
anybody else. Usually she was one of
a grown family of girls There was

When Buttons Were Big.
Bachaumont writes in his "Secret
Memoirs," Nov. 18, 1786: "The mania
for buttons is today extremely ridicu-
lous. They are not only of enormous
size, some of them as big as six pound
crowns, but miniatures and pictures
are made upon them, and this orna-
mentation is extremely costly. Some
of them represent the medals of the
twelve Caesars, others antique statues
and still others the Metamorphoses of
Isabey, in his biographical notes,
says that when he came to Paris he
worked for a living by making copies
of Vanloos anti Bouchers on the lids of
snuffboxes and that for these medal-
lions he was paid from 6 to 8 francs
each. "As it was still the fashion," he
said, "to wear buttons as big as a five
franc piece, upon which Cupids, flow-
ers and landscapes were cut in cameo,
I went into that business. I got 12
nous for each."-Paris Figaro.

Famous Collection of Antlers.
Of the 'famou- collections of antlers
formed in the seventeonth century only
two or three have escaped the general
fate of dontligratious, sieges and pil-
lage. One of these is in Moritzburg,
the king of Saxon-'s historical hunting
castle. near Dresden. while in the cele-
brated gun gallery in Dresden itself
are to be seen in an unrivaled show
the wonderfully inlaid arms used by

of the castle of Moritzburg is one of
thIe sights with which no doubt many
a traveled reader lisa been charmed.
It Is a chamber of noble proportions,
':ixty-six feet long by thirty-four wide
undl thirty-eight feet high. On its oth-

soieventy-one pairs of magnificent ant-

most famous of their kind in the world.
Not a single one carries less than
twenty-four tines or is less than 200

double that age.

Spots On iLearntr.
Oxalic acid in weak solutions is the
best thing to use when removing spots
from leather. Two or three crystals
of oxalic dissolved in warm water,
then applied with a bit of cloth to the
spots, will do the work. Watch close-
ly, and when the spots begin to disap-
pear apply clear water to overcome the
acid. which is a powerful bleach. Dry
the leather with a clean cloth. For

Why Some Countries Are Uninkabiteo
A mere glance at our maps impresses
a few general facts upon us. We see
that the largest areas of the unknown
are now in lands that are too dry, as in
the Sahara, the desert of Arabia, and
the steppes of Mongolia; lands that are
too wet and hot, stimulating almost im-
penetrable forest growths, as In parts
6f the Amazon and. Kongo basins;
lands that are too cold and bleak, as
portions of the northern arefs of Amer-
;c, antl Asia. Even the characteristics
of the inhabitants influence the extent
af the unexplored. In proportion to to-
ial area there is more unknown surface
;n Liberia than In any other political
subdivision of the world, because the
Liberians, content to live along the
coast, have scarcely entered their vast
forest maze, though they teem with
rubber and other resources.--Cyrus C.

'The threatened revival of the con-
certina as a serious musical Instrument
in England would be a return to an
old fashion no dQubt, but not to a very
old one, since the concertina dates from
the early part of the last century. Its
invention was an early indiscretion of
Sir Charles Wheatstone of telegraph
fame, who took out a patent for it In
1829, the very year In which some-
body In Vienna invented that similar
Instrument, the accordion. The concer-
tina was popularized by Big. Regondi,
who had come before the public as a
Juvenile prodigy with the guitar. At
one time no London concert was real-
ly complete without him and his con-
certina, and he astounded the Germans
with the music he could get out of It.
Gladstone as an Orator.
It was a budget last night-about a

hours by Mr. Gladstone, and he hard-

moment, broke through cheers, dashed
over interpellations-logic, figures, il-
Itstrations, extradts-all pellmell, with
a whirl and fury that took the breath
away. And he did it all with the ut-
most ease and got to the end without
turning a hair. Mr. Gladstone took it
all quietly and did It quietly and left
the house and went home quietly,

The Ownershipv of a Patent.
Suppose that a prior patent is in-
fringed and no way is seen to avoid
infringement by changing the product
or the process or the machine so as
not to embody the principle of %qpat-
ented inven on. The simplest way, of
,course, wou be to buy the patent. If
the- patent cannot, be bought, but a
"fraction of the pateit can be obtained,
no matter how small a fraction-say'
one-tenth of the entire right in the pat-
ent-the owner of the one-tenth would
be just as well off as the owner of the.
nine-tenths. The courts have held that
a patent is not like the capital stock
of a corporation and that the owner of
more than one-half of the title to the
patent has no claim upon the owner of
less than one-half. Each is at liberty
to do with his portion what he pleases
and cannot be made to account to the
other. The owner of one-tenth may
make ten times as much out of the pat-
ent as the owner of nine-tenths, be-
cause of his greater business ability
)r greater capital or for'other similar
reasons, and It would not be equitable
