A Lay SBuzestiom.
L ; the last night of a series of "pro-
tracted meetings" in the Methodist
church of a little southern California
village the visiting evangelist was
making a special effort to obtain a
showing of anxious souls. He had
preached his best sermon and reached
an emotional fervor that he had seldom
equaled. But nobody responded to his
invitation. They sang a hymn, and
then the evangelist rose again and call-
ed upon the congregation to "enlist for
the service of the Lord."
A battle scarred, wooden legged vet-
eran who had dropped into the back
seat watched the proceedings with in-

Luxury as It Is Indualed In by the
Arette Traders.
So much has been written of the Es-
kimo ("husky") dogs and dog sleds of
the north that they may well be men-
tioned here if only to show the idea of
luxury which many of the factors and
traders of the Hudson Bay company
entertain. Seated or rather reclining
in his cariole, swathed in furs, he is
driven by an engage on foot who dash-
es along at a great pace. The cariole is
painted gaudily. There are Russian
bells on the collars of each of the long
span of dogs,. while the harness is a
mass of beadwork and tassels.
No longer when he lodges at night at
a post does he partake solely of the
simpler fare it can furnish, nor even
when he camps out in the wilderness

der the cariole seat or In an additional
sled behind, there is found a good sup-
ply of canned meats and vegetables,
products of Chicago and Ontario, and.
moreover, his driver is his cook. In
the open a fire will be deftly kindled,
tea will be made. bacon and even eggs
will be fried, and hot "flapjacks." that

It is. after all. for human courage. The
soldier or the sailor can say to himself
when he knows that he must take a
supreme risk in battle or in a storm:
"I am powerless against the fate which
was decreed for me from the beginning
of the world. If my time has come, I
cannot help it; if not. all the forces of
earth and sky and ocean cannot prevail
to harm me." But when without an in.

a ship's bottom and the -waters rush
into the gap, when confusion selzes the
entire company aboard, when the fog is
too thick for the captain to be seen or
the roar of the sea drowns the sound of
his orders a new test is applied. Then
It is that the courage which rests on
nothing firmer than a negation gives
way, and In his greed to save his own
life the stoic becomes as a madman.
There have been steamship disasters
in which men of humble station, of all
colors and faiths, have shown the finest

When you hear the kitchen boiler

There is a prevailing impression that
the cracking is produced by steam and
that there is therefore an increased

filled, the only pressure that it is sub-
jected to is the same as that in the
water pipes, from which of course
there never is the slightest danger.
And this is true no matter how hot the
water in the boiler may be.
The reason is very simple. As long
as the boiler Is kept full of water there
Is no room for steam. If you open the
hot water cock, the water pours out,
and steam rises from it, because It then
has a chance to escape into the air. In
other words, evaporation takes place.
But as the hot water pours out water
from the pipes rushes in to take its
place, and thus the boiler is kept full.
The cracking noise referred to is
heard when the water is unusually hot
and is nothing -ut the expansion of the
boiler under the influence of that heat.
It is In no degree an indication of dan-
ger unless indeed the boiler is worn out
or defective, wiIch Is a matter entirely

When a kitelen boiler explodes, It Is
generally because a fire has been kin-

empty. It happens sometimes when
people come back to town after spend-

the boiler, of course, and when the wa-
ter is turned on It Is converted sudden-
ly and violently into steam, and the
boiler cannot stand the enormous pres-
sure. Fortunately few persons are
thoughtless enough or silly enough to
build a fire before opening the cocks
connecting the boiler with the water
pipes.-Chicago Chronicle.

I Justice.
In the History of Beverly," Ma
the following anecdote is related of a
good Justice of the peace in the old colo-
nial times. On a cold night in winter
a traveler called at his house for lodg-
ing. The ready hospitality of the jus-
tice was about being displayed, when
the traveler unluckily uttered a word
which his host considered profane.
Upon this he informed his guest that
he was a magistrate, point*-d out the
nature of the offense and explained the
necessity of Its being expiated by sit-
ting an hour in the stocks.
Remonstrance was unavailing, for
custom at that time allowed the magis-
trate to convict and punish at once, and
in this case he acted as accuser, wit-
ness, jury, judge and sheriff, all In one.
Cold as it was our worthy Justice,
aided by his son. conducted the travel-
er to the place of punishment, an open
place near the meeting house where
the stocks were placed. Here the trav-
eler was confined in the usual manner,
the benevolent executor of the law re-
maining with him to beguile the time
of its tedium by edifying conversa-
At the expiration of the hour he was
reconducted to the house and hospita-
bly entertained till the next morning.
when the traveler departed with, let us
hope, a determination to consider his
words more carefully before giving
them utterance in the bearing of a con-
scientious magistrate.

The Professor's Wooing.
The experience known as "popping
the question" Is the bugbear of every
man, however confident of his charms
or fluent of speech. Many original
ways of asking young women to marry
them have been resorted to by bashful
men, but perhaps the most brilliant
suggestion came to a learned German
professor, who. having remained a
bachelor till middle life, at last tumbled

with a huge pile of the family hosiery
on the table. The. professor aimlessly
talked on general topics, wondering
how he could lead up to the subject
nearest his heart, when all at once a
happy thought came to him.
Leaning forward, he put his big hand
on the little fist doubled up inside the
stocking and said hesitatingly:
"You darn very beautifully, fraulein.
Would you like to darn my stockings
Fortunately the fraulein w4s not so
simple as she appeared. She grasped
the significance of the question imme-
diately and lost no time in answering.

SWhy Girls Cannot Throw.
A great deal of fun is poked at girls
because they cannot throw a stone or a
snowball and hit the person or thing
they are aiming at. The general idea
as to why girls cannot throw as well as
boys is that they have not acquired the
knack by practice as their, brothers
bave. Another explanation is given by
aL medical man which tends to show
that girls could never learn the knack.,
however much they tried.
When a boy throws a stone, he
crooks his elbow and reaches back
with his forearm, and in the act of
throwing he works every Joint from
shoulder to wrist. The girl throws
with her whole arm rigid. whereas the
boy's arm is relaxed.
The reason of this difference Is one
of anatomy. The feminine collar bone
is longer and is set lower than In the

"Mr. Buchanan, who was the first

lawyer of Lancaster, Pa., he had loved
Miss Coleman, a beautiful daughter of
a citizen of that town. They had been
engaged to be married, when one day
he was surprised to receive from her a
request to release her from the prom-
ise. According to Mr. George Tick-
nor Curtis. the separation originated in
a misunderstanding on the part of the
lady, who was unusually sensitive.
over some small matter exaggerated by
giddy and Indiscreet tongues. Soon
after the estrangement she was sent

mantic tragedy. He would only say
that it had changed his hopes and
plans anadhad led him more deeply
than ever Into politics as a distraction
from his grief. In his old age, long
after he had retired permanently to
private life, he called attention to a
package' containing, he said, the pa-
pers and relics which would explain
the causes of his youthful sorrow and
which he preserved evidently with the
Idea of revealing them before his
death. But when he died and his will

The Canadian northwest is a proba-

glishmen of nomadic instincts. Num-
bers of them annually purchase hunt-

warrenn lands to prospect for minerals
or take up land on the prairies. But
most often they return to the civiliza-
tion of the towns with nothing but
hard words for the wilderness.
The construction of the Temiscaming

one wealthy English family to take a

Tetilun the Schoolmsaster.
In the town records of the city of
Boston there Is a curious passage
which records bow a schoolmaster was
examined and what happened. The
manner in which the visit of inspection

something absurd in the passage as it

1tmat' UReport on T7red Mules
ith b ee~ .Appetites.
"Shortly after the battle of Chlcka-
mauga," said Captain Pitch, "I was ap-
pointed chief quartermaster of the sig-
oal corps of the department of the
Cumberland, stationed at Chattanooga.
On taking account of the quartermas-
ter's stores I found that I was In need
of some light wagons to be used In the
nwonttinous country, and the only
way to get them was to go to Nash-
ville and have them- made, so 1 went to
Nashville and had five light wagons
made by the quartermaster's depart-
ment. When I got back to Chattanoo-
ga with the wagons, I put a citizen
teamster in charge of the wagons and
"The teamster, being a green-hand,
did not know that mules would eat
anything within their reach and Inno-
cently tied them to the wheels of the
wagons. Not long after that I got an
order to be ready to march, and on go-
ing out to inspect my outfit I found
that the mules had eaten the spokes of
the wheels nearly off, so that the wag-
ons were ready to fall down of their
own accord. As I could not use them
I had no recourse but to drop them
from my returns, and, being obliged to
assign a reason for so dropping them, I
gave the true one-viz, 'Eaten by
"Shortly afterward I got a letter
from the quartermaster general sarcas-
tically inquiring if Lieutenant Fitch
had observed whether the mules bad
eaten the tires or not I replied that I
presumed they had. as they seemed to

be thoroughly tired the next day. The
quartermaster general wrote back,
'Any -further trifling "with this depart-
ment on the part of Lieutenant Fitch
will probably result in his being retired
to private life.' Thereupon I dropped
the subject, but my first report was
"At Chickamauga," said the major,
"Longstreet's men ran over our head-
quarters teams. Every mule in one of
the teams went down, and the wagon
stood an obstruction in the road. Five
minutes later every mule was on its
feet, and a wounded teamster yelled at
them to pull out. They started without
more ado, swept along the road after
our broken regiments and, turning at
just the right point, came into our new
lines and stopped where the headquar-
ters flag had been stuck in the ground.
The driver reported later and drove in-
% Chattanooga.
"One of these mules the night before
had pulled the blanket off our division
commander, had run over the lines of
soldiers sleeping in close battle order,
had raided the Confederate pickets and
had returned to our bivouac under a
furious fire. The men of the brigade
took a solemn vow to shoot the mis-
chievous mule at daylight but when
daylight came they had other things to
shoot at, and the mule was forgotten
until he came in at the head of the
team attached to the headquarters
wagon. Then the boys who had wit-
neased the charge and the escape of the
driverless team counted the mule's dev-
iltry as nothing."
"That charge of Longstreet, by the
away," said the colonel. "was one of the
great charges of the war, and it was as
successful as any as a breaker ofjLines.
Of course we think of Pickett's charge
at Gettysburg in a class to itself, but 1
have often wondered whether the
(Union assault on the Confederate posi-

tion at Kenesaw mountain June 27,
1864, should not be put in the list with
the Confederate charge at Gettysburg.
Pickett's charge was of course the
more spectacular, and the assaulting
force was more compact, but while it
broke the Union line at one point it
was driven back in disastrous retreat.
"The direct assault on the fortified
line on Kenesaw was made by three
brigades, no better troops than Pick-
ett's Virginians, but it must be remem-
bered that while they failed to pierce
the Confederate line they held their po.
zitlon and did not retreat Their loss
was correspondingly as heavy as Pick-
ett's at Gettsburg. Sherman's idea was
to show his own army as well as the
Confederate army that he could make
a frontal attack. If the assault bad
been made and the assaulting column
had retired, as did Pickett's column at
Gettysburg, the effect on the army
would not have been as it was when
the regiments that'led the assault clung
to their position not more than 30 paces
from the Confederate parapets.
*The attack failed except in that It
was an Illustration of the spirit of the
Union troops in.assault. Lee's purpose
at Gettysburg was undoubtedly to
drive Pickett's 16,000 men like a wedge
through the Union lines. The failure
of the attempt led to the retreat of the

Yet the farmnner who under-
stands that he can't have a
healthy corn crop without
feeding and weeding, seems
to think that he can have a
healthy body without either
care or culture. But the body
is built up just as the corn is,
by the assimilation of the
several chemical elements on
which vitality depends. And
what weeds are to the corn,
diseases of the stomach and
nutritive systems are to the
body; they divert the neces-
sary food supply from the
proper channels, and the
body becomes lean, sickly
and ill-nourished.
The proper digestion and'
assimilation of food is a pri-
mary essential of health. By
healing diseases of the stom-
ach and organs of digestion and
nutrition, Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery increases
the digestive and amimilative
powers, stimulates .the action
of the blood making glands,
and sends to every organ of the
*body the rich red-corpuscled
blood on which physical vigor
and vitality depend.
"I took two bottles of Doctor
Pierce's Golden Medical Discov-
ery, for stomach trouble," writes
Clarence Carnes, Esq.. of Taylors-
town, Loudoun Co., Va. "It did
me so much good that I didn't
take any more. I can eat most
anything now. I am" so well
pleased with it I hardly know how
to thank you for your kind infor-
mation. I tried a whole lot of
things before I wrote to you.

about your medicine, how it had
cured his wife. I thought I would

The Song of the Grouse.
Certain birds when the period of
courtship comes round repair to partic-
trysting places and announce their
Presence there by well known calls or
The ruffed grouse, as every- one
ows, seeks an old log or other con-
tenient perch and drums with his
wvings, a hint to any lady grouse with-
in hearing that "Barkis is willing "
The performance of the grouse is one
frequently heard, but comparatively
seldom seen, and for many years there
'rere numerous conflicting theories
ncerning the means by which the
mming was produced. Some said
t the sound was vocal and others
declared that the grouse struck.the log
ith its wings. Even today the pre-
ise cause of the sound is not known,
r, although the bird has been closely
watched, its wing movements are so
apid that it is next to impossible to
11 exactly what takes place. This
uch, however, is known: During the
rformance the grouse stands upon
e leg or other perch and strikes the
Ir in front of his body somewhat after
e manner of an elated barnyard cock.
e first few strokes are measured, but
ey become faster and faster until the
dividual thumps are lost, as in the
oling of a drum. Whether the sound

whether it Is Increased by the striking

Too Classic For Them.
A resident in a small suburban town
had a visit from a German friend who
knew little English, but played the vio-
lin well. One of this resident's neigh-
bors gave a musicalle" and of course
he and his visitor were invited. The
German took his violin, and when his
turn came he played one of his best
pieces from one of the great masters.
When lie had finished, there was an
awkward silence and no applause. The
people were still looking expectantly at-
the German, who looked disappointed
and flustered. The silence grew pain-

face, edged over to the side of the Ger-

The Torture of a Flax Shirt.
The most trying ordeal that Booker
T. Washington was forced to endure as
a slave boy was the wearing of a flax
shirt. In his autobiography, "Up From
Slavery," he says:
"In the portion of Virginia where I
lived it was common to use flax as part
of the clothing f lavess. That part
of the flax from which our clothing
was made was largely the refuse,
which of course was the cheapest and
roughest part. I can scarcely imagine
any torture except perhaps the pulling
of a tooth that is equal to that caused
by pulling on a new flax shirt for the
first time. It is almost equal to the
feeling that one would experience if he
had a dozen or more chestnut burs or a
hundred small pin points In contact
with the flesh. Even to this day I can
recall accurately the tortures that I un-
derwent when pulling on one of these
garments. The fact that my flesh was
soft and tender added to the pain. But
I had no choice. I had to wear the flax
shirt or none, and had it been left to
me to choose I should have chosen to
wear no covering.
"In connection with the flax shirt my
brother John, who is several years old-
er than I am, performed one of the
most generous acts that I ever heard of
one slave relative doing for another.
On several occasions when I was being
forced to wear a new flax shirt he gen-
erously agreed to put it on in my stead
and wear it for several days till it was
'broken in.' Until I had grown to be
quite a youth this single garment was
all that I wore." I

The Resin Eaters.
"Resin eating," said a south Georgia
doctor, "is a habit acquired by the
Cracker settlers who live in the neigh-
borhood of a turpentine still. The resin
they use isn't the hard, shiny resin of
commerce, but has been dipped out of
the cooking caldron at an early stage
of the process, and when it cools it can
be kneaded between the fingers like
wax. The backwoods resin eater will
bite off an immense chunk and chew it
placidly until it disappears. The heat
of the mouth keeps it fairly soft, but if
the chewing becomes too deliberate it
is apt to 'set,' as they say, and cement
the victim's jaws together in a grip of

Laughter is a positive sweetness of
life: but. like good coffee, it should be
well cleared of deleterious substance
before use. Ill will and malice and the
desire to wound are worse than chico-
ry. Between a laugh and a giggle there
is the width of the horizons. I could
sit all day and listen to the hearty and
heartsome ha, ha, of a lot of bright
and jolly people, but would rather be
shot than be forced to stay within ear-
shot of a couple of silly gossips. Cul-
tivate that part of your nature that is
quick to see the mirthful side of things,
so you shall be enabled to shed many
of life's troubles, as the plumage of the
bird sheds the rain. But discourage

Willing to Hear: of It.
A Methodist critic, wishing to put
his bishop "in a hole," or, as Dr. Wil-

"Yes," the bishop cheerfully replied.

English Ideas of Lynching.
At a recent dinner in London the
conversation turned on the subject of
lynchings in the United States. It was
the general olili;on that a rope was
the chief end of man in America.
Finally the hostess turned to an Amer-
ican, who had taken no part in the
conversation, and said:
"You, sir, must have often seen these
"Yes," he replied, "we take a kind
of municipal pride in seeing which city
can show the greatest number of
lynchings yearly."
"Oh, do tell us about a lynching you
have seen yourself," broke in half a
dozen voices at once.
"The night before I sailed for Eng-
land," said the American, "I was giv-
ing a dinner to a party of intimate
friends when a colored waiter spilled a
plate of soup over the gown of a lady
at an adjoining table. The gown was
utterly ruined, and the gentlemen of
her party at once seized the waiter,
tied a rope around his neck and, at a
signal from the injured lady, swung
him into the air."
"Horrible!" said the hostess, with a
shudder "And did va i, n

*The White Sheak.
The shark of sharks, the real "man
eater" and the one most dreaded, is
the white shark. This variety reaches
a length of 35 feet and a weight of
2,000 pounds. Its head is long and
flat, and the snout far overhangs the
mouth. Its six rows of teeth are sharp
as lancets and notched like saws. Its
mouth is very large, so that one has
been known to cut a man's body com-
pletely in two at a single snap of its
cruel jaws and another to swallow one
at a gulp. Near Calcutta one of these
sharks was seen to swallow a bullock's
head. horns and all.
From the stomach of another a bull's
hide was taken entire, and the sailor
who made the discovery insisted that
the bull had been swallowed whole
and all except the hide had been di-
gested. From the stomach of another
was taken a lady's workbox, filled with
the usual contents, scissors and all. It
is commonly the white shark which
follows the vessel at sea day after day
and week after week.

Alvary Pirashed the Kiss.
"A beautiful scene," said an old thea-
ter goer, "may be utterly ruined by
some trifling mistake, and an error of
seemingly Infinitesimal dimensions
throw out an entire company. Often-
times, however, the ready wit and pres-
ence of mind of an actor or actress may
save the day and turn what night oth-
erwise have been disaster into triumph.
One of the most difficult of all scenes to
carry off successfully occurs in the op-
era of 'Siegfried.' You will remember
that Siegfried awakens Brunnhiide
from her long sleep with a kiss. Wag-
ner has so arranged it that the kiss
seems as long to the audience as the
immortal slumber itself. In reality it
lasts about 70 seconds, but it seems un-
ending. It is a most trying situation
for the singers, for the audience is ex-
tremely likely to grow restless.
"Some years ago at a performance of
'Siegfried' in St. Louis Alvary-poor
chap!-was singing Siegfried to Mme.
Sucher's Brunnhilde. He had got about
half way through his lengthy oscula-
tion when the gallery began a succes-
sion of smacks, constantly increasing
in volume. It was a critical moment;
but, as the event proved, one that was
to add to Alvery's already large wreath
of laurels.
"Slowly he raised his magnificently
handsome head and turned toward the
audience and silently looked the galler-
ies into silence. In ten seconds he had
completely mastered them, and you
could have heard a pin drop in the
great house. Then he dropped his face
on that of Brunnhilde, and that kiss
went on to its appointed and Sapholike
finish without further interruption
from the audience. It was as fine an
exhibition of the control a great per-
sonality can exercise over an audience
as I have ever witnessed."-New Yor'

His After Dinner Speech.
There is no field of mental effort in
which success in its most flattering
form may be won quicker than on the
after dinner platform. The man who
can amuse and instruct such an audi-
ence. for instance. as that which as-
sembles each year at the New England
society dinner, perhaps the most crit-
ical in New York, may awake to find
himself famous. A few hours before
Henry W. Grady of Atlanta was to
speak at the New England society's
dinner in 1.;S8 a correspondent of a
southern newspaper asked him what
he would say. and he replied:
"The Lord only knows. I have
thought of 1,000 things to say. 500 of
which if I say they will murder me
when I get back home. and if I say the
other 500 th-.y will murder me at the

New York, received at the dinner that.
night when the last ringing sentence
of his speech had been spoken never
has been equaled on a similar occa-
sion, and his fellow citizens at home
stood for hours in the rain in crowds
waiting to greet him on his arrival as
the spokesman of the new south. His
progress from a local to a national
reputation had been made in a bound.

One of the Queer Sights of Brooklyn.
"Speaking of queer things that hap-
pen in Brooklyn," said a member of the
finance department, "a few nights ago
I was going out on a late train on the
Fifth avenue elevated road. There
were few passengers In the car. Sit-
ting opposite me was a demure cookingg
Brooklynite with a large bundl under
each arm. The bundles were closely
Wrapped with newspapers.
"Suddenly a violent internal move-
ment agitated the bundle under the
man's left arm, and a moment later the
head of a large game rooster broke
through the paper. As soon as the roost-
er's head was clear he crowed loud
and defiantly. Then the bundle under
the other arm heaved and struggled,
another beak and comb appeared, and
the crow of defiance was promptly an-
swered by one of challenge.
"Then for five minutes those two
roosters crowed at 30 seconds' inter-
vals, while their owner struggled des-
perately to get them back into the
wrappings where he had thought them
effectually concealed. He Indignantly
refused the request of the other passen-
gers to put them on the floor of the car
and let them fight it out."-New York

The Colore of Eels.
The eel is very unpopular with many
people, but. like many unpopular
things, he improves with acquaintance.
In form be is long. slender and grace-
ful. in color dark green above and
yellowish white below. Many be-
lieve that there are two distinct varie-
ties. the salt and the fresh water eel.
but I am inclined to think that, like
all other fishes. the eel partakes much
of the nature of his surroundings. A
long summer vacation in a pond or
brook renders him darker in color, and
daily feasting on landlocked delicacies
renders him more corpulent.
Just so codfish take on the color of
their habitat, gray when on muddy
bottom, bright red when living among
kelps and gay colored marine plants.
I believe, too, that the eel often for-
gets to return to salt water, but never
breeds elsewhere, for I have never
seen baby eels in brooks or ponds. I
have known them to be taken every
month in the year In the ame locali-
ties. Some say that half the eels spend
the winter in fresh water, coming
down in the spring, and that the other
half go up for the summer.

Preumnably Rich Guesta Who Ap-

I was much struck with the habits of
kleptomania common to some of the
presumably rich visitors who engaged
expensive suits of rooms and even paid
their bills. After the departure of
these guests the bed would be found

towels and pillowslips were also very
often removed.
On one occasion a gentleman engag-
ed a double room for one night only.
and the following morning the maid,
knowing of his departure, made up the
bed with fresh linen for the next occu-
pant. However, the visitor bad evi-
dently returned to his. room after
breakfast, deliberately taken the slips
off the pillows and packed them with
his luggage, for on entering the room
shortly after I found the bed made up,
but no slips. I happened to know that
the maid had certainly put fresh ones
on when she made up the bed. What

The little folks of the Methodist
Sunday School are preparing to enjoy
themselves to their heart's content to-
morrow on the excursion to Lanark,
given by the Sunday school superin-
tendent. Others wil enjoy themselves
as well, and the excursion bids fair to
be a very large one.
The good wives of our fair city ha-.'
already begun to roll up their sleeves
preparatory to beginning the putting
up of their summer preserves and jel-
lies. There will be a plentiful supply
of material of all kinds this summer.
Even figs will be with us again for the
first time in several seasons.
T. B. Rice. a prominent druggist of
Greensboro, Ga.. writes as follows:
"I have handled Dr. Pitts' Carmina-
tive for eight year-, and have never
known of a single instance whers it
failed to give p 'rfect satisfaction. Par-
ties wlo once use it always make per
inanent c istomers. We sell more of
this article than all the oth-r Carmina-
tives, soothing syrups and colic drops
combined." For teething children it has
no equal.
Just received. Carload Reapers,
Binders, Mowers, Rakes, etc. Give us
a call. We cannot be undersold.
