exceed, and probably will be con-
siderably less than $2,000,000.
Unfortunately for the gulf coast,
the cities along the coast are com-


mercial towns and not manufactui
ing towns, and if all of the mant
facturing enterprises in the citif
from Galveston to Key West wer
put in one town it would on!y mak
a fair-sized manufacturing town a
compared to many cities of thi
country.
One reason why this is so is eas
ily explained by saying that w
have the finest i lfiate in th
world, which, heo e' e tends to pu
us to sleep to a certain extent, bu
this is not our fault, and we don'
want it changed.
There is also a lack of means ant
lack of skilled; workmen, which
however, can be remedied by mak
ing conditions more favorable fo
the investment of capital and em
ployment of labor.
To do this there must be cheai
power, and on the gulf coast thal
means cheap coal for fuel, which
can be best obtained by watel
transportation; also the best trans-
Dortation facilities, which can b(
obtained by securing water rates.
It is true that Mobile has already
had provision made which guaran-
tees cheaper coal for this city thal
any other gulf port can obtain de-
pending on water transportation
but of course its real and lasting
prosperity does not depend upon
the establishment of manufacturing
plants for the manufacture of arti-
cles for home use only; but upon
he development of the' country
and surrounding towns and trade
relations with those towns, which
will result from these advantages,
and the best transportation facili-
ties obtainable, giving the best pos-
lible market for its manufactured
ind other products.
Although I do not live in Mobile
and my home. isat St. Andrews1
Fla., which will tbe a competing
)ort, for which I expect to work as
lard as any man ever worked for
Mobile, I wish to say that I do not
think that any city on the gulf is
going to become important by get-
ing commerce away from other
orts, and if one town was to se-
uae all of the 'commerce of the
;ulf ports now, it would probably
be less than the commerce of one
hose ports will be in a few years
rom now, it the country is devel-
ped as it should be, and as condi-
ions will warrant.
It is my opinion that it would
ae better for the people where I
ive if Mobile, Pensacola and New
)rleans each had a population of
nore than 1,000.000 people, for we
vould have a much better market
o buy in, and a better market to

unities.

SHow a Maid Proposed Mar-
risae For Her Mistress. I

By P. A. MITCHEL

Association.
e* *4***Sg**ooe*eAaaaa


SA gentleman, handsomely dressed,
a llghted from a railway train at a sub>
Urban station and, going out to where
carriages stood waiting, looked about
for one be expected to meet him.
Passing a landau In which sat a young
woman in the costume of a maid, she
Stalled to him:
"Beg pardon, sir. Are you Mr. Jur-
negan?"
"1 am."*
"I've been sent by Miss Whitebead
to meet you."
"'IndeedP'
"Yes ar Mis Whitehead was in-
tending to come herself. but she was
called away suflhlonly this mur-ninrl."
Since It was a four hour journey
each way Mr. Jnrnc-an decided to
stay., But whatewas be., to do ty amuse
himself till tomorrow? He abd Miss
Whitehead were both Intprested In an
estate that was tiiltigatton. Mr. Jur-
negan's father and Miss Whitehead's
uncle had been partners In business
and had left their affairs in A tangle.
Mr. Juroegan seemed to have the best
of the legal situation, and Miss Wbith
head' attorney advised ber to meet
Mr. Juregon. whom she had never
seen. and endeavor to effect a compro-
mise. He strongly recommended her
to marry him if she could. She had
invited him to her home for a confer-
ence. As he rolled along he concluded
to pump the maid.
"Does Miss Whitehead live alone?"
he asked.
"Yes, sir, with a housekeeper for
chaperon."
"Good mistress?"
"Very good-in some ways, sir."
"in what way?"
"Well. sir, there's nothing mean
about her. She pays good wages and
gives us days out quite often, besides
lots of fine castoff clothing. But she's
very independent, does things her own
way, and the neighbors call her
freaky."
There was nothing in this to help
Mr. Jurnegan to an opinion as to
whether he would be able to make a
compromise favorable to his own in-
terests or not, though the fact that
Miss Whitehead was not mean looked
well. On reaching her residence be
alighted and was shown to his room
by a manservant. There he made his
toilet and went down to luncheon.
After that he had a whole afternoon
before him with nothing to do. Going
on to.the piazza, he lit a cigar. The
maid came out with periodicals, which
she placed on a table near him.
"Miss Whitehead told me I was to
do my best to make your waiting as
easy as possible, sir."
"I don't know how you can do that
better than by telling me about Miss
Whitehead." he responded. "Sitdown
und tell me what she is like."
The girl demurred at seating herself
near a gentleman, but agreed that if
he would permit her to get her needle.
work she would answer any questions
he might ask. He gladly consented
and on her return began his inquiries.
"How old is Miss WhiteheadT'
"I don't know, sir. She might be
thirty."
"Thirty! I heard she was not more
than twenty-two."
"She looks it anyway."
"Good looking?"
"Oh. no, sirl Miss Whitehead is not'
good looking."
"Then she's very stupid to have so
pretty a maid. The contrast is detri-
mental to her own appearance."
Naturally the maid was pleased at
this compUliment. She bent her head
over her work and said nothing.
"I fancy." pursued Jurnegan, that
your mistress must rely on you for
more than the duties of a maid or she
would not have Intrusted you with
lieeplog me here till her return?"
"I sometimes act as secretary for
her."
"Indeed!"
"Yes. sir, and she likes to talk over
her business affairs with me. You see,
she has no one else to talk with about


them.0
"She wouldn't talk with yot very
long about them it she didn't get val-
uable hints from you."
At this moment a telegraph messea-
ger boy came In at the gate and deliv-
ered a dispatch. The maid opened
and read it
"It's from Miss Whltebeadt she
said. "She is certain about her re
turn and would like you to make her a
proposition through me."
"I told you so. She has recognized
In you a bead for business."
Mr. Jurnegan was a clear beaded
man and one who acted on broad and
liberal principles. He laid down the
business situation between himself and
Miss Whiteheaj showing that their In.
terests were identical, that they must
mnnnae baihaifnflusTy'rthe pteperty in
which they were jointly interested.
Re was proceeding when the maid tn-
terrupted him.
"It seems to me, sir," she said, "that
by far the best arrangement to be
made is for you and Miss Whitehead
to marry. I hope you'll never tell her
I proposed such a thing. If you do
I'll lose my place."
"I had often thought of that myself,"
said Jurnegan, naturally surprised.
"But I am opposed to marrying a wo-
man older than myself. You say that
Miss Whitehead is thirty and home-
ly?"
"I am not a judge of beauty. You
might think her fairly good looking."
"Ii tIlkest two to make a bargain.
What do1 you think Ilss Whitehead
would say to your plan?"
"She favors I.
"P'avors ttIl
-Ve. sir She has told me several
tle tat t's t the only way of making
a sattlnfictory permanent settlement."
"Oh. I seo. 'Mlsa Whiteheabd, having
such an opinion, prefers to let it be
known through another. I'm Inclined
to think she went away on jiurpose to
enable me to gett through yon."
"You're right, sr. The story about
her aunt Was made up."
"Welt. upon my word I You're very
frank about IL But, while Miss White-
bead. you say, favors a settlement by
marriage. It doesn't mean that she
would settle It nt that way without
seeing me. and if she seesr me she
might decide that no such settlement
Is poiAttlk" '
*I think that part of tt would be all
right, sir." -
"Why so?"

"*Well, Miss Whitelead IS a ry
sensible and a very practical woman.
She sa also peculiar and has some
r~tra:.ie-.i iiir. SheW tUlnks tliat love


often blinds us to our best Interests.
1he went away re4Alved that If this
settlement by marriage be agreed to
by you ber conse.t would depend ea-
tirely1 o my report of yoU."
''The dickens sb dil! That beats
anythlr of the kind I evtr heard of
as coming from e woman,"
"Mie Whitehead. as I told you, i
ver1y ~Iecatea."
"I should think she s .leaving the
question of her acceptance of a life
partner to her maid."
"But. under the circumstance, don't
yon think, sir, that it shows a certain
depth of wisdom?"
"I don't know but It does"'
"Well, sir, since my mistress has left
her part In the matter to me it In set-
tied. Now, what shall I say to her as
to your part ?"
"You can say that I am so astonish-
ed at this remarkable method of bring-
ing about a settlement that I don't
know what to say. It's my opinion
that you have furnished the brains to
concoct such a plan. If you were
making the proposition on your own
behalf I would say. 'It's a go.' As it
Is I must see Miss Whitehead before
giving an answer."
"Very well. sir; I win telegraph her
to come at once."
"How long will she be coming?"
"She will be here for dinner."
With that the maid arose, remarked
that the periodicals on the table were
of the latest issue and left him. In-
stead of reading them he got up and
walked about the grounds. He saw
nothing., however, his mind being en-
tirely taken up with this remarkable
turn in his affairs. The maid had
doubtless been Instructed to say that
Miss Whitehead was older than she
was and plain looking. It would not
do for hbr as her mistress' spokesman
to say that she was young and beauti-
ful. He was iery impatient to see

preljotsseAssing aslai.e much depended
upon whether h1 could bring hiumelt
to marry her. But he could not divest
himself of admiration at the way her
mald had acquitted herself of so deli-
cate a mission. Indeed, he was re-
markably pleased at both the plan and
the manner In which it had been car-
ried out. But the as yet unseen Miss
Whitehead-would her appearance cor-
respond with her talent for diplomacy
or her maid's diplomacy?
Every ten or fifteen minutes he took
out his watch to note the time, which
dragged heavily. Between 5 and 6
o'clock he went to the house and asked
a servant what time dinner would be
served. He was Informed that Mrs.
Whitehead usually dined at 7. Then
he Inquired If Miss Whltehead had re-
turned. There was no need for him to
ask this question, for be had been
watching all the afternoon to see her
drive up. When he received a negative
reply ho sent for the maid-secretary
and asked her if she were sure her
mistress would return in time for din-
ner.
"She will surely be here, sir," was
the reply. "I think it. is time for you

lieves, as it said when :t heard of the
contemplated change, and as the pub-
lishcr haE frequently expressed himself
to Mr. Casey, that he was making a
mistake by leaving St, Andrews. He
appeared to be always busy here, and
he can no more hope. to compete with
the great establishments than he could
here in St. Andrews; but the Buoy
wishes him well
-The over-zealous advocates of the
iron-clad prohibitory amendment to
the State Constitution. which is to be
asbmitted to the people for their ap-


proval at the coming general election
may gain much valuable information
by a careful perusal of a circular that
has been published containing a recital
of facts bearing upon the proposition,
by Hon, James Ellis Blanton of Lee,
Madison county. Florida, a member of
the Florida -legislature for five differ-
ent terms, an opposer of the sbmission
of the amendment to a vote of the pco-
pie, himself a clergyman of the old
school Baptist faith and a person of ir-
reproaohablc moral character It is
not to be supposed that any array of
incontrovertible facts would have any
effect upon the miudi of the fanatical
prohibitionists; but in the language of
the great Southorn editor, Henry Wat-
terson, "Wise men sometimes change
Their minds-tools never do."

Though not phenomenally large they
are all well filled to the very tips with

He came upon thes two stalks by mere

A Very Old Rule.
The oldest mathematics book in the
world Is believed to be the "Papyrus


Ithind" in the British museum, pro-
fessed to have been written by Ahmes,
a scribe of King Ra-a-us, about the
period between 2000 and 1700 B. C.
This "Papyrus Rhind" was translated
by Eiseulohr of Leipzig, and it was
found to contain a rule for making a

Do You Get Up
With a Lame Back?
Kidney Trouble Makes You Miserable.
Almost everyone knows of Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp-Root, the great kidney, liver and
Bladder remedy, be-
Scause of its remark-
SiI able health restoring
properties. Swamp-
L Root fulfills almost
S every wish in over-
\_l coming rheumatism,
pain in the back, kid-
\ neys, liver, bladder
and every part of the
-'u-. urinary passage. It
'*"- ." corrects inability to
holl water and scalding pain in passing it,
or bad effect following use of liquor, wiue
ar beer, and overcomes that unpleasant
necessity of being compelled to go often
through the day, and to get up many
times darinV the night.
Swamp-Root is not recommended for
everything but if you have kidney, liver
or bladder trouble, it will be found just
the remedy you nced. It has been thor-
oughly tested i; private practice, and has
proved so successful that a special ar-
rangement has been made, by which all
readers of this paper, who have not al-
"eady tried it, may have a sample bottle
,ent free by mail, also a book telling
more about Swvamp-Root, and how to
findout if you have kid-
ney or bladder trouble.
When writing mention Riaui. ,MSI
leading this generous I
offer in this paper and ..
send your address to
Dr. Kilmer & Co., Home i,:ainp-w..
Binghamton, N. Y. The regular fifty-cent
and one-dollar size bottles are sold by
all druggists. Don't make any mistake
but remember the name, Swamp-Root,
Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, and the ad-
dress, Binghamton, N. Y., on every bottle.

are liver aud bowels sometimes; seem
to balk without cause. Then there's
trouble-loss of appetite-indigestion,

But such troubles fly before Dr. King's

ach and liver remedy. 25c, at all

A FORCED


MARRIAGE


Bed Compcations hat Were
LoUm i Being Worked Out

f THERESA C. HOLT

COsigMrit, U2K by Amerseaf Prs f
A ooattoIn.


Mothg 'was known about Ralph
RAgden, a young man who bought a
iant ranch in New Mexico, except
that he was an Englishman. He was
tall and well formed, with light hair
and complexion and blue eyes. This,
with a winning smile that uncovered
white, regular teeth, made him in ap-
peuraie very attractive. He had
roghbt 2000 with him from England,
w i which he purchased and stocked
t runch.
Be bed no sooner got settled than
the neIghboring ranchers called on
ha i nd invited him to their homes,
Wht he accepted none of their invita-
ao. This excited a good deal of talk
smong the women at, the different
alearh houses, all of whom were cu-
ka~ir to know why the handsome Brit-
..her w-ld have nothing to do with
thi Th general verdict was that
IM eoonidered himself too good for
them. Nevertheless Hayden was hail
tallow well met with all the men and
opam became popular alike with ranch-
Oleatd cowboys.
One day Hayden set out to go to a
neighboring ranch. He was walking
aere a field when a bull espied him
dad bore down on him from the rear.
a1l0e unconscious of his danger,
eeotined on leisurely. Suddenly he
saw a horsewoman leap a fence and
wl upoo him, swinging a lasso as she
Srod." Net understanding the move-
a et, be stood still, regarding her with
woqderlng eyes. Coming near him,
she threw her lasso, but not at him.
Terming. e saw that she bad thrown
the loop around the horns of a bull.
Drawing his revolver, he quickly kill-
de th beast.
Te met thing he die was to raist
his hat In a courtly manner to the wo-
mas- who had saved his life and offer
Sli thanks. 'She was a girl about
Twenty years old. A coll of hair was
falling under her sombrero, having
been Ioesened by the Jump she had
made over the fence. Her costume
was a jacket cut Mexican fashion and
divided Skirts of the same material.
"Had it not been for you," said Hay.
S4e "I would probably now be either
dead or dying. The bull would have
taske ai nl the back and broken it.
I shall esteem It a fvor if you will
amm a the way in which I may best
"bow omy gratitude."
-Tu are Mr. Haydea, I believer
1 am."
"Do you know what a woman loves
besttr
"I do not."
"To gIt ahead of other women."
"Well '
"Comie and see me."
S"You have a charming frankness. I
sall certainly call upon you. You
must be that Miss MacDonald of whom
I have heard so much."
1" am Kate MacDonald. I bid you
pg morning."
Kast MacDonald was-a feminine free
les. She could ride. shoot, hurl a
l Mo as well as any man in the neigh-
borhood and had a way of looking out
ft a palt of honest eyes that invited
eCnIdeaDc. Sie Was tender hearted in
the extreme. Se ca-led a spade a
spade .It had a sovereign contempt
fr people who said one thing and
meant another.
Balph Hayden called upon her at her
father's ranch the same evening.
When he arose to go she said to him:
"Tomorrow afternoon I shall expect
you to ride with me. We will go past
the principal ranches hereabout in or-
4twr that the women may see us to-
prther. After that I shall resign all
cilne upon your attention."
"And I shall not be allowed to visit
Po again?"
"As often as you like, but not from
say obllgatloa to do so."
A month later one evening Ralph
' Bayden, after pacing the floor for an
heor. swayed by conflicting emotions.
went to Kate MacDonald's home, told


her that be loved her so deeply that
he eold ruin himself for her'and beg-
ed her to marry him.
"Wh t do you mean by ruining your-
a lt or me"' she asked.
"I amS pledged to marry a girl in
Engiand."
Kate started. This was indeed a
N ow. Her sense of honor revolted at
Iis deserting another for her.
"Does she love you very much?" she
asked .
"I don't know. I suppose she loves
me. though the marriage Is to be under
eertala contingencles."
"W et We they? No. don't tell me.
Ib wayw I need time to think this
ever"'
,,s eteyad the order. For several
days there was no communication be-
ween them. Then be wrote her, re-
ellint aD he had said, closing with
the worer.- '1 was demented.. There
bi but one path for me to follow, and
aafn a fbol and a knave would fellow
any other."
No answer came to this. One even-
ing about a week later Kate MacDon-
atd. attended by half a dozen cowboy
friends and a parsou. rode up to Ralph
Ialyden's ranch house. All dismount-
ed and entereif. One of the cowboys
wct*4 as spokesman:
A, "A tMhftg Kate MacDonald wants

"f'm not afraid of yewr torture," said
HIydeu. "but I'm eedly to go through

Not a word was spokeo by the con-
tracting coulpie except to make the re-
p i'. required by the marriage service.
Ithee it was over Kate MacDonald



&aWa eMtItresN e@aft, ur. ao opiate


tea tue way out, ano all mounted their
horses and rode away.
The next day Hayden disappeared.
From this time forward Kate Mac-
Donald, or Kate Hayden, was a chang-
ed woman. She no longer galloped
over the country taking fences and
ditches by the way. She never attend-
ed any of the social gatherings held
among the neighboring ranchers. The
,only feature eminent before her mar-
riage she retained was her tender solic-
itude for those who were In trouble.
The Ilaydon ranch remained in care of
a keeper, who offered it for sale. Noth-
ing was beard of its owner. A year
passed. By that time Kate Hayden had
come to see her act in its true light and
wrote a letter to her husband, telling
him that if he wished to be free from
her she could easily obtain a divorce
on the ground of desertion. Not know-
ing where to send her letter, she asked
the keeper of the Hayden ranch for
her husband's address. lie told her
that lie had been instructed to give it
to no one, but he offered to forward
the missive, and she accepted the offer.
Sufficient time elapsed for a letter to
come from almost any part of the
glole. but none was received. Months
passed, and still no word. The young
wife. wife in name only, became a
broken down woman. It was not the
equivocal position in which she stood
before the world, but the fact that she
loved the man she had treated In a
Scanner which every day seemed to
her more unmaidenly and barbarous.
This, added to that dreadful silence,
was killing her. She was not sure
even that he lived. Her parents, her
neighbors, endeavored in every way
to draw her from her despondency.
Her friends the cowboys gathered in
groups to discuss the man whom they
considered to blame for her condition
and even debated the question of send-
ing one of their number to find him
wherever he might be and give him
the chance of returning to his wife or
swallowing a dose of lead.
But no such method of restoring her
haplpiunes.s of course, ever reached the
young wife's ears. She gradually sank
till tllhoe bout her began to shake
their heads and predict that she would
at last fall a victim to her unfortunate
affair. The Huyden ranch was finally
sold. The intelligence was kept from
her as long as possible, fearing that
this breaking the last link that bound
her to her husband would have an in-
creased effect upon her. But when the
new owner took possession of the prop-
erty it was impossible that she should
be kept In ignorance any longer. As
was feared, it destroyed her nast hope.
One morning when the dully stage
arrived at the relay house Ralph Hay-
den hurriedly alighted, ordered a horse
and. mounting, galloped away. Half
an hour later he was seen to ride into
the MacDonald ranch house. The
news spread over the neighborhood.
The ranchers and the ranchers' fami-
lies discussed the arrival and wondered
what the next move would be. The
cowboys convened in special meeting.
and it was solemnly agreed that if the
Britisher went away without his de-
parture being satisfactory to his wife
they would waylay him and force him
to fight each one of them successively
till all were killed or he bit the dust.
Some of them lingered their revolvers
uervously In antkicpation.
It was not long, however, before very
startling news was given out at the
ranch- house. Hayden had returned
fpr the bride he bad been forced to
marry; he was not only Ralph Hayden,
but Sir Ralph Hayden and heir to one
of the fairest estates In England.
Then all the women exclaimed at once:
"Goodness gracious! Kate Mac is
Lady Hayden!"
The afternoon this news was cir-
culated the cowboys agreed that they
would go in a body to the MacDonald

"WXell, you see," replied the single

Moroccan Red Tape.
Official correspondence in Morocco is
couched in a very tfowery and flam-
boyant style. It is interspersed with
a variety of meaningless adulatory
phrases that tend to confound the real
meaning of the epistle. For example.
an order to the minister of finance
to contract a loan begins thus:
"In our present letter (God increase
his power and make the glorious sun
and his moon glitter In the firmament
of his felicity) we have authorized our
incorruptible servant (here follows
name) to contract in the name and on
the behoof of the treasury (heaven fill
it) a loan of -," etc.
Considering that the "incorruptible
servant" Is filching as much as he pos-
sible can from the treasury it is cer-
tainly necessary to pray that "heaven
fill It"-Londop Graphc.

Hard to Kill.
The Hawaiian Islands have always
been famed for their freedom from
snakes. People and animals could
wander with impunity through val-
leys and over hills and mountains. An
importation arrived on the steamship
Alameda from California that might
have put an end to such delightful
serenity. This was the arrival of three
flimsy boxes containing fourteen large
living snakes, five of them rattlers.
Under a rule such animals arriving in
the territory of Hawali are ordered to
be immediately destroyed or deported.
"In the destruction of these snakes."
says the narrator, "we bad a surpris-
ing experience. I placed the boxes in
one of our fumigating chambers and
applied a charge of double density of
hydrocyanic acid gas. The snakes
were still alive at the end of fifteen
minutes, whereas if they had been
warm blooded animals they would
have succumbed in a less number of
seconds. They were again shut up,
and a quadruple charge of the same
deadly gas was admirdstered. At the
end of one hour and a half the furmi-
gator was opened, and several of the
snakes still showed signs of life. We
then Immersed them in 95 per cent al-
cohol. That soon put an end to their
venomous existence." Youth's Com-
panion.

Well Placed Generosity.
In 1885 Liszt went on a tour In the
French provinces. He arrived at the
little town of L. to give a concert, as
announced. But the inhabitants ap-
peared to take but little interest in
musical matters, for when the musi-
cian appeared on the platform he
found himself face to face with an au-
dience numbering exactly seven per-
sons. Liszt stepped very calmly to the
front, and, bowing respectfully to the
array of empty benches, he delivered
himself as follows:
"Ladies and gentlemen, I feel ex-
tremely flattered by your presence
here this evening, but this room is not
at all suitable; the air is literally sti-
fling. Will you be good enough to ac-
company me to my hotel, where I will
have the piano conveyed? We shall be
quite comfortable there, and I will go
through the whole of my program."
The offer was unanimously accepted,
and Liszt treated his guests not only
to a splendid concert, but an excellent
supper into the bargain. Next day
when the illustrious virtuoso appeared
to give his second concert the hall was
not large enough to contain the crowd
which claimed admittance.

A Collector's Bargain.
Lord Spencer of Althorp, one of the
greatest of book collectors. was at
home only in his own tield. One day
in browsing about Bond street, Lon-
don, he went into the shop of a dealer
in bric-a-brac. The dealer, who knew
him by sight, said persuasively:
"Here is a fine bit of pottery which
your lordship really ought to have.
and you shall have It very chep--only
2 guineas."
So Lord Spencer bought it and took
it home and set It in a high place.
One day a connoisseur of china paid
him a visit, and Lord Spencer showed
his bargain.
"What did you give for it?'- asked
the connoisseur.
"Two guineas." answered Spencer
rather proudly.
"'H'm!" said the connoisseur. "At
that price the marmalade should have
been included."
"What do you mean?'
"Why, that precious piece of yours
Is nothing more or less than a shil-
ling marmalade pot with a green this-
tle painted on It"'

Silencing the Questioners.
A French gentleman who had been
with M. de Talleyrand for twenty
years accompanied him to the congress
at Vienna after Napoleon's exile to
Elba. People naturally concluded that
this long intimacy had made him fa
mlllar with a number of partlc-ulinrs of
the minister's life and hearing alno
upon the events with which he had
been mixed up. Worried with nqes-
tions, the friend invariably replied that
he knew nothing, but the questioners
would not be satisfied and returned to
the charge.
"Very well." finally said Talleyrand's
confidant; "I'll tell you a peculiar and
altogether unknown fact In connection
with M. de Talleyrand. Since Louis
XV. he's the only man who can open a
soft boiled egg with one backward
stroke of his knife without spilling a
drop of the contents of the shell. That
is the only peculiarity I know in con-
nection with him."
Discretion had scored a decisive vic-
tory. From that moment the ques-
tions ceased.

The Sting of Ingratitude.
A young physician in the east side,
New York city, spends much time in
charitable practice, says the Newark
Stat. In fact, he sometimes gives to
a poor patient enough money to pay
for prescriptions. "I'm not getting
rich," he explains, "but I simply can't
see them suffer for medicines that
may put them on their feet again."
Not many days ago the doctor had
occasion to visit a woman who occu-
pied one small tenement room with
her three children. After making out
a prescription he gave her $2, telling
her to buy the medicine and to use
the change for needed food. On the
following day as he was about to en-
ter the tenement for a second call he
met the ten-year-old daughter of the
patient.
"How is your mother?" he inquired
of the child.
"Oh, she's all well!" was the an-
swer. "She took the $2 and got a real
doctor."

When to Stop Advertlsing.
An English journal requested a hum-
ber of the largest advertisers to give
their opinions concerning the best time
to stop advertising, and the following
replies were received:
When the population ceases to multi-
ply and the generation that crowded
on after you and never heard of youd
stops coming on.
When you have convinced every-
body whose life will touch yours that
you have better goods and lower prices
than they can get anywhere else.
When you stop making fortunes sole-
ly through the direct use of this
mighty agent.
When younger and fresher houses In
your line cease starting up.
When you would rather have your
own way and fail than take advice
and win.- Nashville American.
Right or Wrongl
Professed politicians who have re-
duced otllceholding to an exact science
find the independent voter a sad stum-
bling block, a fact which is amusing-
ly disclosed by a story found in the
life of the late George Monro Grant.
the eminent Canadian educator and
clergyman.
Toward the end of Sir John Macdon-
ald's life he and Principal Grant, then
the head of Queen's college, met at
dinner at the house of the premier's


brother-in-law, Professor Willlamson.
"How 1 wish," the premier said to
the principal, "that you would be a
steady friend of mine."
"My dear Sir John," the principal
replied, "I have always supported you
when you were right."
The premier's eyes twinkled, and he
laid his hand upon the shoulder of the
principal.
"My dear man." said he, "I have no
use for that species of friendship."

Spoiled the Trick.
A New York ollicial who had gone
through a political campaign, speaking
of trickiness, said: "The tricky nmn
usually winds up by being too tricky.

"Brown, who lives in Fifth avenue.
suspected his English butler of drink
ing his wine. So one night he drugged
a couple of bottles of four or five dol-
lar Chateau Yquem and left them in
the dining room.
"Unfortunately that night Brown's
wife returned late from the opera.
She saw the rare wine and had it put
down in the wine cellar along with the
twelve dozen other bottles of Chateau
Yquem that Brown had laid in.
"Brown is wondering -to this day
which txo bottles are the drugged
ones. He has stopped drinking Cha-
teau Yquem. In fact, I understand his
whole stock of it is for sale at a rea-
sonable price."--Exchange.

Another Kind of Walk.
Ethel did not rush into his arms
and cry "Oh, Cuthbertl" as usual.
When he was ushered into the draw-
ing room she gave him the frigid eye,
and the gas was kept on at full pres-
sure.
"I've been studying pedomancy.
Cuthbcrt," she announced.
"Pedomancy, pet ?"
"Divination by the feet," she ex-
plained. "Feet that Incline to flatness
are a sign of meanness, Cuthbert."
Cuthbort looked down at his No. 10
tans and sighed.
"A hurried yet silent walk." she coo-
tinud, "'Is lndicath-e of criminal ai
stincts. Tour walk Is so htirried, so
noiseless. Cuthbert."
"You are speaking of only one of my
styles of walking. l;thel." he answer-

Dumas' Wealth and Poverty.
Alexandre Dunmas' rise to wealth
and luxury was linltost as marvelous
as that of his lost celeibruttd hero
He built a nmagnilicent chatenu. which
he named Monte Chrlsto. There he en-
tertained all comers, friend and stran-
ger alike, with more than oriental
magnificence and sometimes with oil.
mental mystery. His purse was open to
all who sought it. and the day came
when he experienced Timon's fate
without acquiring Timon's disposition.
He could not become a misanthrope,
though his fortune disappeared almost
as suddenly as it came, and then he
learned the ingratitude of men. His
last days were passed not in poverty,
but In narrow circumstances. He left
Paris in the fall of 1870 just as the
German army was closing in to be-
siege It and when France was feeling
its deepest woe. To the last he pre-
served his gayety and youthful spirit.
"I had but one napoleon In my pocket
when I first came here," he said. "1

me a spendthrift."

Very Devout.
A new parson was presented to a
living in a remote agricultural dis-
trict and was anxious to make him-
self at home with his flock as soon as
possible. He therefore began his pas-
toral calls at once. Among the first
recipients of these attentions was
Farmer Jones, whose family the new
parson had noticed to be very regular
and apparently very devout attend-
ants at church. Farmer Jones was
out, but his wife received the parson,
when the following dialogue took
place: "I am your new rector. Mrs.
Jones. I have tloticed with great pleas-
ure your regular attendance at church
and have lost as little time as possi-
ble, you see. In calling and Improving
our acquaintance." "Yes. sir," replied
Mrs. Jones: "we're 'bilged to be regular

Settled a Great Question.
When Thomas II. Benton was in the
house he was of the opinion that the
Sd day of March and consequently the
congressional term ended at midnight
of that day instead of at noon on the
4th, as unbroken usage had fixed it.
So on the last morning he sat with his
hat on, talked loudly, loafed about the
floor and finally refused to vote ol
answer to his name when the roll
was called. At last the speaker, the
lion. James L. Orr of South Carolina,
picked him up and put an end to these
legislative larks.
"No, sir; no, str: no, airr" hoote
the venerable Mseeourla. "I will not
vote. I have no right to vote. This is
no house, and I am not a member of
It-"
"Then, sir," said Speaker Orr like a
flash, with his sweetest manner, It
the gentleman is not a member of this
house the sergeant at arms will please
put him out."
And so this vast constitutional ques-
tion settled Itself.-Argonaut.
