ness of his mother, N s. W. D. Hartt.

bound. Mrs. Hartt w s seized with a
congestive chill. Pnem nonia developed
and she grew gradu lly worse. Her
symptoms became so alarming that a
telegram was sent to: ner son Harry.
Mr. Hartt left at cance for Brunswick
to be in attendance Tt the bedside of
his mother. The intlid rallied and
showed such great improvement that
her son returned to: Tallahassee on
Friday, very hopeful lor ner recovery.

shortly after her son'j departure. She
continued to sink, an dat midnight Sat-
urday night she brea ied her last. A

ed was a consistent anit devout member
of the Baptist Churchbut the fact that
the denomination is at the present
time without a minister in Tallahas-
see rendered it necessary for the ser-
vices to be conducted by some minis-
ter other than Baptist. Remains were
interred in the City Cemetery and were
followed to their final resting place by
a large concourse f relatives and
The following geilemen acted as
- pall-bearers: Hon. Pred. T. Myers,

SUN BROS.' SHOWS.
Sun Bros.' Show, which exhibited
here today, is without doubt the best
show that has ever played here. The
music was first-class, the band being
under the efficient-leadership of Chas.
Coons. Perris and Trevanion, the
aerial performers, have no equal in
their line; the Ardello Family, in acro-
tatics and .tumbling are the best ever
seen here; Dan Evans, clown, and Mas-
ter George Sun, the youngest clown in
the world, are uproarously funny; aind
made a big impression; the trained po-
nies, horses and dogs showed a high
degree of sagacity; George and Pete
Sun, jugglers, are without a doubt,
premiers, as they are masters in their
respective lines. The show had an Im-
mense audience, both afternoon and
evening, and gave the best of satisfac-
tion.-Alexandria, Va., Gazette.

the matter. It seems that the sheriff

colored coach~ with his prisoner, de-

and will go to the smoker."
With this he started to leave the
car. As the sheriff moved on Arm-
strong grappled with him, saying "you
are the man I want." They scuffled
around a short time when the negro
drew a revolver and placing it at Mr.
Edwards' breast, began firing.
The sheriff was unarmed, and the
man left to guard the prisoner cam' to
his assistance. He placed his revolver
at the negro's breast and began shoot-
ing. In the scuffle the sheriff and his
assailant fell from the train. After
running into Climax the conductor had
the train backed to where, the mrin had

The average reader knows nothing
of the obstacles encountered by the
news-gatherer for an up-to-date paper.
Nine people out of every ten you meet
could give something that would not
only help fill up the paper, but would
mak' interesting reading.
It is really a difficult undertaking to
get news. The reporter calls on a mer-
chant, or private citizen, and finds it
like "squeezing blood from a turnip" to
get a news story. The interview usu-
ally goes like this:
"Good morning, Mr. Jones. How's
"0, pretty fair. We can't complain,
"Well, what's the news? Can't you
give us something that would interest
the general public?"
"Let me see, er- No; I don't know
a thing. There is nothing going on."
During the course of conversation, if
the reporter has time to wait, it leaks
out, probably, tuat Mrs. Jones and her
daughter are off on a ten days' visit
to friends in Podunk; that Willie
Green, while playing football, had his
nose mashed, his head cracked, collar
bone fractured, one eye gouged out,
and a leg broken.
The next man you meet does not
know a thing worth publishing. Time
is not pressing, however, and the re-
porter lingers, to enjoy a short chat
In half an hour or so the news-gatherer
learns that Sarah Brown has eloped
with Peter Jackson, and a fearful

Time is becoming precious to the re-
porter, however. He -knows that the

for "more copy." Yet it will not do
to leave Mr. Jones without pumping
him Ary. Before tearing himself away
the newspaper man has jotted down ii
his notebook memoranda of the bur

as one or two birth notices and two ox
The reporter does not always strik<
a bonanza like the above, but in a ma
jority of cases, if he has the time a-
his disposal he can get two or three
items from every person he meets.
Many times the newspaper man is ac-
costed with the question: "How is it
tnat you failed to mention the party
last night?" or; "My wife returned last
week from a month's visit to Jackson-
ville, but I didn't see anything of it in

pleasure in writing it up.

The child starts up, and looks about
"Oh. mother, is it you"" And she
sinks back upon her pillow, looking
now inquiringly from face to face.
"Father-where is father?" she asks.
"Oh! Is he? I'm glad."
Her eyes closed wearily.
"Do you feel any pain, Mary?" in-
quired the doctor.
"Yes. sir-in my head. It aches and
The cry of "Father" has reached the
ears of Morgan, who is sleeping in the
next room, and roused him to con-
sciousness. He knows the doctor's
voice. Why is he here at this late
hour? "Do you feel any pain, Mary?"
The question he bears distinctly, and
the faintly uttered reply also. He is
sober enough to have all his fears in-
stantly excited. There is nothing in
the world that he loves as he loves that
child. And so he gets up and dresses
himself as quickly as possible; the
stimulus of anxiety giving tension to
his relaxe0 nerves.
"Oh, father!" The quick ears of
ilary detect his entrance first, and a
pleasant smile welcomes him.
"Is she very sick, doctor?" he asks,
in a voice full of anxiety.
"She's a sick child, sir' you Should
have sent for me earlier.", The doctor
speaks rather sternly, andi with a pur-
pose to rebuke.
The reply stirs Morgan. nd he seems
to cower half-timidly under the words,
as if they were blows. Mary has al-
ready grasped her father's hand, and
holds on to it tightly.
After examining the case a little
more closely, the doctor p epares some
medicine, and promising o call early
in the morning, goes away: Mrs. Slade
follows soon after; but, in'parting with
Mrs. Morgan, leaves something in her
hand, which, to the surprise of the lat-
ter, proves to be a ten-dolar bill. The
tears start to her eyes; and she con-
ceals the money in her bosom-mur-
muring a fervent "God bliss her!"
A simple act of restitution is this on
the part of Mrs. Slade, prompted as
well by humanity as a sense of justice.
With one hand her husba d has taken
the bread from the family of his old
friend, and thus with the Ither she re-

fever rises, and partial delirium seizes
upon her over-excited brain. She talks
for a time almost incessantly. All her
trouble is about her father; and she is
constantly referring to his promise not
to go out in the evening until she gets
well. How tenderly an4 touchingly
she appeals to him; now looking up
into his face in partial recognition; and
now calling anxiously after him, as if
he had left her and was going away.

a finger on her lips, and looked mys-

But the words, which came to him
like a prophecy awoke such pangs of
fear and remorse in the heart of Joe
Morgan, that it was impossible for him
to repress the signs of pain. For some
moments he gazed at his wife-then
stooping forward, suddenly, he buried
his face in the bed-clothes, and sobbed
A suggestion of the truth now flash-

THE HOME GOLD CURE.
An Ingenious Treatment Dy Which
Drunkards are Being Cured Daily
in Spite of Themselves.
No Noxious Doses. No Weakening of
the Nerves. A Pleasant and Posi-
tive Cure for the Liquor Habit.
It is now generally known and
understood that Drunkenness is a dis-
ease and not weakness. A body filled
with poison, and nerves completely
shattered by periodical or constant use
of intoxicating liquors, requires an
antidote capable of neutralizing and
eradicating this poison, and destroy-
ing the craving for intoxicant. Suf-
ferers may now cure themselves at
home without publicity or loss of time
from business by this wonderful
"HOME GOLD CURE," which has
been perfected after many years of
close study and treatment of inebri-
ates. The faithful use according to
directions of this wonderful discovery
is positively guaranteed to cure the-
most obstinate case, no matter how
hard a drinker. Our records skow the
marvelous transformation of thou-
sands of drunkards into sober, in-
dustrious a'2d upright men.

and is so skillfully devised and pre-
pared that it is thoroughly soluble and
pleasant to the taste, so that it can be
given in a cup of tea or coffee with-
out the knowledge of the person tak-
Ing it. Thousands of drunkards have
cured themselves with this priceless
remedy, and as many more have been
cured and made temperate men by
having the "CURE" administered by
loving friends and relatives without
their knowledge in tea or coffee, and
believe to-day that they discontinued
drinking of their own free will. DO

THE OLD YEAR AND THE NEW.
Christmas, 1901, is now a memory.
To some it will remain as a pleasant
dream, a day full of happy recollec-
tions. To the little folks especially
will it be remembered as a most de-
lightful epoch in their little lives. They
look upon the visit of Santa Claus as
an important event, and his future
visits will be just as eagerly longed for
until the happy hallucination of child-
hood shall have been dispelled.
Many iconoclasts favor abolishing
Santa Claus, claiming that the decep-
tion teaches and sanctions falsehood.
Away with such niceties! Who would
deprive innocent childhood of the
pleasure of plotting and planning for
the visit of Santa Claus? Perish the
Dear Old Santa Claus!-that mys-
terious being who is the patron saint
of all the good- little boys and girls -in
Christendom! He has made glad the
hearts of countless thousands since

Bethlehem, just 1901 years ago. May
his visits continue to bring joy and
gladness to human hearts and homes
as long as time lasts!
'1 e Christmas just passed was a
pleasant one to many. To others it
was a sorrowful occasion, as it per-
haps witnessed the death of some loved
one. We are not looking on the dark
side of the picture, however, and while
sympathizing with the sorrowful ones,
must remind them of the glorious
promise held out and commemorated
The day passed off quietly in Talla-
hassee. There were no disturbances
worth mentioning to mar the pleasures
of the multitudes. Services at the dif-
ferent churches were well attended and
the people generally had a good time.
A ne closing week of the first year of
the twentieth century has about ended,
and before another issue of The Talla-
hasseean reaches its readers the old
year will be dead, and the new one
ushered in. The year just closing has
bfen a memorable one, one worthy of
tife twentieth century. It has wit-
nessed many improvements all over
the world.?In Tallahassee the advance-
ment has been marked. More im-
provements are now going on here
than ever before at one time. In 1902
the onward march will be even more
gratifying. During the year to come
two new railroads will be completed and
running into the city, the enlargement
to the State Capitol will be acocm-
plished. and many new residences and
business houses will be erected.
In closing this article and welcom-
ing the incoming year, we can not re-
train from wishing our readers and the
public generally a happy -and prosper-
ous New Year.
The City Council has been arraigned
during the past week for spending
$150 for advertising in a holiday issue
of the Florida Times-Union and Citi-
zen, to appear shortly. It is a deplora-
ble fact that some one in this commu-
nity is always read yto criticise when
oney is spent for advertising-r!-
gardless of the channel through which
it is expended. And it is perhaps
largely attributable to this fact, that

It was asserted after the close of the
coupon contest last week that this of-
fice refused to sell papers to those sup-
porting the young lady next highest
in the contest and thereby helped Miss
Maxwell to win. We regret the neces-
sity for making this statement, but
when such a motive as that is attribut-
ed to us we are always in position to
meet and refute it.
We started that contest for the pur-
pose of selling Tallahasseeans, and
printed a great many more than were
sold each week. We urged the friends
of both sides to place their orders be
fore the closing day, because we wanted
to sell the papers, and because we
knew that if they run out the defeated
side would make some foolish charge.
No orders came. When the last issue
went to press we had on hand about
600 copies (estimated), and printed
something over 350 more. Monday the
Woodville people came in and bought
all they wanted. Thursday-after the
forms had been torn down and a new
paper almost completely made up-the
town boys came in for a large number,
aoout 1,500 they said.
We did not have that many; bue we
did have 505 and gladly sold them,
knowing absolutely nothing about how
the vote would stand, because we had
been mailing and ondlino- ,mi ,v- ...-
the nearest direction that can be given
is something like this:
"Say, mister, can you tell me where
Mr. John Smith lives '"
"Let me see; keep on down this
street, one, two, three blocks, then
turn to the left; continue two blocks
that way and turn to the right Fol-
low that street until you come to.a
large store house with a couple of live-
oaks in the front yard. Turn to the-
left here and you will find a big gate.
After going through this gate, continue,
until you reach a path on the right
just before coming to the forks of the
road. Don't take this path, but the
next one, which will take you to the
bacK of Mr. Brown's barn, and he will
tell you where Mr. Smith lives."
Now, this is a very lucid description,
and ought to enable a person to find
his destination. It does not, though,
and not one person in one hundred can
find a place thus pointed out How
much better would it be were street.

This hint is thrown out to the City
Council in the hopes that it will be
acted on. The suggestion will meet
the approval of a large majority of the
"BIRDS OF A FEATHER."
The cartoon in a recent issue of the
Atlanta Journal, taken from the Nofth
American, is the most appropriate we
have seen. It is entitled "Birds of a
Feather." In one group can be seen
Rear Admiral Schley, Admiral Dewey
and General Miles, men who won honor
and distinction by facing the enemy in
actual battle. They are pictured stand-
ing on the bridge of a battleship. The
import is that General Miles, com-
mander of the United States Army, and
Admiral Dewey, the hero of Manila,
each the highest officer in his branch
of service, regard Schley as the real
hero of Santiago. They are brave men
who would give honor where honor is
The other group shows Sampson, the
man who left Santiago on the eve "'of
battle, seated with Benham and Ram-
sey, around the mess table, enjoying a
bowl of steaming punch. The infer-
ence is plain. Benham and Ramsey are
toy sailors. They are parlor orna-
ments who won promotion through fa-
voriteism in times of peace. And
Sampson! Well, Sampson is a tin
sailor, too. Tlirough being a pet of
the navy clique he was promoted to
command of a squadron over men more
worthy the honor. He is not satisfied
with this, however, and must add in-
sult to injury by trying to steal the
honors of the glorious victory of San-
tiago from the man who won the bat-
The cartoon is most hapoy. It cou~d
not be more appropriate. Yea, verily,
birds ;f a feather do flock together.
The carrion-eating buzzard must neces-
sarily associate with buzzards. He isl
too groveling to be found in company
with the lordly eagle. Right here is
the simile: Dewey, Schley and Miles
represent the eagles of the American
army and navy; Sampson, Benham and
Ramsey the buzzards. They are the
graveyard ghouls who delight in pluck-
ing at the carcasses of real heroes.
One thing is missing in the picture
to make it complete-"Historian" Mac-
lay should be represented in the group
The committee consisted of Council-
men Ball, Edmondson and Quaile, the
latter acting as chairman. Mr. Quaile
reported in favor of the city granting
the lease at an annual rental of one
dollar. The report specified that the
railroad company obligate itself to put
tne reserve in proper shape and erect
a depot and other necessary buildings
by January, 1903. The railroad com-
pany was to agree further, to have its
shops, offices and general headquarters
nere. This report was signed by
Messrs. Quaile and Ball.
A minority report was submitted,
signed by J. A. Edmondson, which re-
commended postponement of action by
the Council until its regular January
session. In this report Mr. Edmond-
son emphasized the fact that the Coun-
cil should not be too hasty in matters
of such great importance. lie advised

There's a story of a farmer and his
son driving a load to market. Of the
team they were driving one was a
steady reliable old gray mare, the other
a fractious, balky black horse. On the
way the wagon was stalled and the
black horse sulked and refused to pull.
"What'll we do, father?" said the
younger man. "Well," said the father,
"I guess we'll have to lay the gad on
the old gray." That homely compli-
ment to women: "The gray mare's the
better horse" suggests how often when
there's an extra strain to be borne it
is laid on the woman's back. How of-
ten she breaks down a last under the
added weight of some "last straw."

MR. AND MRS. WINTHROP ENTER-
An Evening of Enjoyment Among Tal-

A very pleasant social function was
the entertainment of their friends Mon-
day night by Mr. and Mrs. John S.
Winthrop, in honor of Miss Clyde
Raney, daughter of Judge George P.
The affair was attended by the elite
of the city, and might be appropriately
termed a "swell" event. The refresa-
ments served were greatly enjoyed and.
the guests spent a very pleasant evce-
Miss Raney is deservedly popular ;n
Tallahassee society circles, and has
many friends. She has been attending
college at Athens, Ga., where she was
a great favorite in society.
Among the guests present at the en
tertainment were: Mr. and Mrs. T. G
Rawls, Mr. and Mrs. Lewis M. Lively,
Mr. and Mrs. Victor F. Balkcom, Mr.
and Mrs. Bryan C. Whitfield, Mr. and
Mrs H. Croom, Misses Clyde Raney,

The committee appointed by the City
Council at its special meeting Wednes-

the matter of granting a lease of the
city reserve to the Tallahassee South-
eastern Railroad Company for a period
of ninety-nine years, met with the
Council at noon Friday.

majority. It was his impression that
the general public recognized the great
benefit the road would be to the city,
and would willingly grant the lease.
Chairman Quaile also spoke in favor
of the report.
Councilman Edmondson made -a mo-
tion, which was seconded by Council-
man Randolph, that action be postpon-
ed until the regular January meeting.
At this juncture Senator Mann, who
is representing the railroad company,
urged upon the Council the fact that
the company had a very short time in
which to construct the road, and a de-
law would be very inconvenient. He
also stated that such delay might re-
sult in the selection of some other sit
for a depot.
After further discussion, a vote was
taken, which resulted in the adoption
of the motion.

Has been rudely defined by some cynic
as "slops and sweets." And after all
there's more truth than poetry in the
definition. Ice cream and cake may
satisfy the palate, but they are far from
satisfying to the stomach, which requires
that food be nutritious first and nice
afterward. By careless eating wome.t
pave the way for stomach "trouble,"
and its kindred miseries.
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discov-
ery is confidently commended as a
cure for diseases of the stomach and
other organs of digestion and nutrition.
By curing diseases which prevent t- e
assimilation of food it enables., the body
to be built up and strengthened in the
only way known to nature-by food
digested and assimilated.

For shading the streets of Southern
cities, especially those near the coast,
nothing is superior to the common,
narrow-leaved oak, universally known
as the water-oak. Though not so har-
dy as the live oak, it is better suited
for the purpose in various respects. In
many Southern cities a great mistake
has been made by planting largely of
such trees as the paper mulberry, and
catalpa. Such trees lend a pleasing
variety to ornamental grounds and are
stately in suburbs, but out of place on
the main streets of a city or village.
Where it is desirable to have shade in
the summer, but not in the winter, for
sanitary reasons ,as, for instance, near
tne dwelling, the China tree or Texas
umbrella is a good variety.
Among Southern cities few were bet-
ter shaded than Jacksonville before the
fire. The craze for Asiatic shade trees
seems never to have struck Jackson-
ville. The noble water oak was plant-
ed almost exclusively, and it has no
superior. The city fathers of DeLand
have done well in following this good
example on the- Boulevard and else-
where; so have many towns and vil-
lages of the State with! their..ladies'
improvement societies anil without. In
this climate nothing enhances the val-
ue of a building lot more than thrifty
well-kept shade trees; and simply aa a
wise business investment, tree plant-
ing should be engaged in to a liberal
extent. For dooryards, parks, ceme-
teries and private grounds where am-
ple shade is ,ess a consideration than a
neat and shapely ornamental, there is
no tree superior'to the common ever-
green, native cherry, commonly called
the mock olive.

A WORTHY SUCCESSOR.
"Something New Under
All Doctors have tried to cure
a ARRH by the use of powders,
gases, inhalers and drugs in paste
oerm. Their powders dry up the mu-
cuous membranes causing them to
crack open and bleed. The powerful
acids used in the inhalers have en-
tirely eaten away the same mem-
branes that their makers have aimed
to cure, while pastes and ointments
cannot reach the disease. An old and
experienced practitioner who has for
many years made a close study and
specialty of the treatment of CA-
TARRH, has at last perfected a Treat-
ment which when faithfully used, not
only relieves at once, but permanently
cures CATARRH, by removing the
cause, stopping the discharges and cur-
ing all inflammation. It is the only
remedy known to science Lhat actually
reaches the afflicted parts. This won-
derful remedy is known as "SNUF-

low price of one dollar, each package
containing internal and external mel-
icine sufficient for a full month's treat-
ment and everything necessary to its

THE BEAUTIFUL ORIENT.
With Streets of All Nations at South
One of the most important and inter-
esting features of the South Carolina
Interstate and West Indian Exposition
Midway is the Oriental concession
known as Akoun's Streets of Cairo and
"The wonders and beauties of the
Orient" is a dazzling, romantic and
realistic display of the indescribable
charms of the East. It is a bit of the
Old World transplanted into the bosom
of one of the oldest marts of trade on
the Western Hemisphere.
To the busy and overworked people
of this great nation the exhibits which
Mr. Akoun gives is gratefully accepted.
Not only do the careless sight-seer
enjoy its novelty and its comprehen-
siveness; to the thinker and student
tney that observe this Oriental pageant
are reminded of the interesting lore
wnich the Bible gives forth of the
primitive days when the wise men
came from the East on their camels to
seek for the new born King, and when
the Saviour rode into,Jerusalem hum-
bly seated on an ass.
Mr. Akoun presents the most salient
characteristics of many of the Eastern
countries with Oriental streets, build-
ings, costumes, racial peculiarities and
bona fide natives, animals and neces-
sary paraphernalia and accessories for
an exhibit of high merit and very large
element of novelty.
In the centre of Lhe space required
by this concession is an extensive plaza
to represent one of the holp places of
Mecca, where Mohammeds of various
countries would meet as coming on a
Diverging from this plaza are eight
streets, each street being characteristic
of a different nation or great city of
the Far East, namely:
Streets of Constantinople (Turkey),
Morocco (Moorish), Algiers (Algeria),
Tunis (Tunisia). Therian (Persia),
Cairo (Egypt), Tripoli-Syria (Turkey
To this is added a Bedouin Arab
campment and Nomad from the desert
of Shara. There are natives from all
the dilierent countries named, huts,
cabins, teuts, bazaara, camels, don-
keys, goats, mules and horses, coffee
and tea houses, shops, fruit stands,
restaurants for the sale of Oriental
viands and refreshments of all kinds.
For representation Mr. Akoun has pro-
vided over 2o0 Orientals-and a large
number of the animals named.

NIGHT VHE SECOND.
T'HE C[ANSd! OF A TEAR.
After Joe Morgan and his wife left-
the "Sickle and eaf," with that gen-
tle child, who, aII afterwards learned,
had not, for a ydar or more, laid her
little head to sleip until her father re-
turned home-anid who, if he stayed
out beyond a certain hour, would go
-for him, and led him back, a very
angel of love ank patience-I re-enter-'
,ed the bar roomqto see how life was
passing there. liot one of all I had
left in the roomjremained. The inci-
dent which had occurred was of so
painful a nature) that no further un-
alloyed pleasure ras to be had there
during the evening, and so each had
retired. In hih little kingdom the
landlord sat alone, his head resting
on his hand, and his face shaded from
the light. The 4vhole aspect of the
man was that of one in self-humilia-
tion. As I entered he raised his head,
and turned his Psce towards me. Its
expression was lpinful.
"Itather an unsprtunate affair," said
he. "I'm angry w'th myself, and sorry
for. the poor chill But she'd no busi-
ness here. As forf Joe Morgan, it would
take '"-t to r4ar his tongue when

he'd stay away $rom the house. No

The ejaculation) or rather groan, that
closed the sentence, showed how little
Slade was satisfied with himself, not-
withstanding thin feeble effort at self-
"His thirst fo? liquor draws him
hither," I remarked. "The attraction
of your bar to hit appetite is like that
of the magnet toothe needle. He can-
not stay away." ?
"He must stay away!" exclaimed
the landlord, with some vehemence of
tone, striking hiu fist upon the .'able
by which he pat "He must stay
away! There is ,scarcely an evening
that he does not ruffle my temper, and

"He never troubled you at the mill,"
said I. "No maniwas required at the
mill door?" a
"No!" And tho landlord gave em-
phasis to the woro with an oath, ejacu-
lated with a heartiness that almost
startled me. I had not heard him
swear before. "No! the great trouble
was to get him and keep him there,
we good-for-nothing, idle fellow!"
"I'm afraid," I Arentured to suggest,
"that things donjt go on quite so
manoothly here as Phey did at the mill.
our customers are of a different class."
"I don't know about that; why not?"
He did not just rlish my remark.
"Between quiet, thrifty, substantial
farmers, and drinking bar room loung-
ers, are many de rees of comparison."
"Excuse me, sirx" Simon Slade ele-
vated his person. "The men who visit
my bar room, as a general thing, are
quite as respectable, moral, and sub-
stantial as any wfro came to the mill -
and I believe more so. The first peo-
ple in the place, sir, are to be found
here. Judge Lynn and Judge Ham-
mend; Lawyer WIks and Doctor May-
nard; Mr. Grand and Mr. Lee; and
dozens of others-7all our first people.
No, sir; you mustn't judge all by vaga-
bonds like Joe M rgan."
There was a testy spirit manifested
that I did not care'to provoke. I could
have met his assertion with facts and
inferences of a c racter to startle any
one occupying his position, who was in
a calm, reflective' state; but to argue
with him then wozld have been worse
than idle; and so I let him talk on
until the excitement occasioned by my
words died out for want of new fuel.

"I don't see aching of your very

the bar and speaking to Slade. It was
the night succeeding that on whi"h the
painful and exciting scene with the
child had occurredl.

word was added a',profane imprecation.

Slade, a slight touch of feeling in hi

"Better a thousand times," answered
Slade. "If he'd only fall down some

"And to you in particular," laughed
"You may be sure it would not cost
me-a large sum for mourning," was the

"Sickle and Sheaf" and its cold-hearted
inmates, and look in upon the family
of Joe Morgan, and see how it is in
the home of the poor inebriate. We
will pass by a quick transition.
"Joe!" The thin white hand of Mrs.
Morgan clasps the arm of her husband,
who has risen up suddenly, and now
stands by the partly-opened door.
"Don't go out tonight, Joe. Please,
don't go out"
"Father!" A feeble voice comes from
the corner of an old settee, where little
Mary lies with her head bandaged.
"Well, I won't then!" is replied-not
angrily, nor even fretfully-but in a

H. C. Chrestenson of Hayfield, Minn.
"For three years I was troubled with
dyspepsia so that I could not hold
anything on my stomach. Many times
I would be unable to retain a morsel

"That you'll never go into Simon
Slade's bar any more."
The child raises herself, evidently
with a painful effort; and leans nec.rer

drops back upon her pillow with a sign.
Her lids fall, and the- long lashes lie
strongly relieved on her colorless

Mary's lids unclose, and two round
drops, released from their clasps, glide
slowly over her face.

The eyes closed again, and the father
moved uneasily. His heart is touched.
There is. a struggle within him. It is
on his lips to say that he will never

unknowing sufferer. Its many
variations work along the weakest

"Do promise just that, father, dear."
He cannot resist the pleading voice
"I promise it, Mary: so shut your
eyes now and go to sleep. I'm afraid
this fever will increase."
"Oh! I'm so glad-so glad!"
Mary does not slasp her hands, nor
show strong external signs of pleasure;
but how full of a pure, unselfish joy is
that low murmur of ejaculation, spoken
in the depths of her spirit, as well as
syllabled by her topgue!
Mrs. Morgan has been no uncon-
cerned witness of all this; but knowing
the child's influence over her father,
she has not ventured a word. More
was to be gained, she was sure, by
silence on her part; and so she had
kept silent Now she comes nearer to
them, and says, as she lets a hand rest
on the shoulder of her husband-
"You feel better for that promise,
already; I know you do."
He looks up to her, and smiles faint-
ly. He does feel better, but is hardly
willing to acknowledge it.
Soon after Mary was sleeping. It
does not escape the observation of Mrs.
Morgan tnat her husband grows rest-
less; for he gets up suddenly, every
now and then, and walks quietly across
the room, as if in search of something.
Then sits down, listlessly-sighs-
stretches himself, and says "Oh dear!
What shall she do for him? How is
the want of his accustomed evening
stimulants to be met? She thinks, and
questions, and grieves inwardly. Poor
Joe Morgan! His wife understands
his case, and pities him from her heart.
But, what can she do? Go out and
bring him something to drink? "Oh.
no! no! Never:" She answered the
thought audibly almost, in the excite-
ment of her feelings. An hour has
passed-Joe's restlessness has increas-
ed instead of diminishing. What is to
be done? Now Mrs. Morgan has left
the room. She has res-olved upon
something, for the case must be met.
Ah! here she comes, after an absence
of five minutes, bearing in her hand a
cup of strong coffee.

hand trembles, ani. he spills a portion
of the contents as he tries to raise it
to his lips. How dreadfully his nerves
are shattered! Unnatural stimulants
have been applied so long, that all true
vitality seems lost.
And now the hand of his wife is
holding the cup to his lips, and he
"Thiis s dreadful-dreadful! Where
will it end? What is to be done?"
Fanny suppresses a sob, as she thus
gives vent to her troubled feelings.
Twice, already, has her husband been
seized with the drunkard's madness;
and in the nervous prostration con-
sequent upon even a brief withdrawal
of his usual strong stimulants, she
sees the fearful precursor of another
attack of this dreadfjil and dangerous
malady. In the hope of supplying .he
needed tone, she has given him ,strong
coffee; and this, for the time, pro-
duces the effect desired. The restless-
ness is allayed, and a quiet state of
body and mind succeeds. It needs but
a suggestion to induce him to retire for
the night. After being a few minutes
in bed, sleep steals over him, and his
heavy breathing tells that he is in a
world of dreams.
And now comes a tap at the door.
"Come in," is answered.
The latch is lifted, the door swings
open, and a woman enters.
"Mrs. Slade!" The name is uttered
in a tone of surprise.
"Fanny, how are you this evening?"
M. Slade takes a chair, and sitting
by the sleeping child, gazes upon her
pale, sweet face. Now the lips of Mary
part-words are murmured-what is
"No, no, mother; I can't go to bed
yet Father isn't home. And it's so
dark. There's no one to lead him over
the bridge. I'm not afraid! Don't-
don't cry so, mother-I'm not afraid!
Nothing will hurt me."
'I ue child's face flushes. She moans,
and throws her arms about uneasily.
"I wish Mr. Slade wouldn't look so
cross at me. He never did when I
went to the mill. He doesn't take me
on his knee now, and stroke my hair.
Oh dear! I wish father wouldn't go
there any more. Don't! don't, Mr.
Slade! Oh! oh! "-the ejaculation pro-
longed into a frightened cry, "My
head! my head!"
A few choking sobs are followed by
low moans; and then the child breaths
easily again. But the flush does not
leave the cheek; and when Mrs. Slade,
from whose eyes the tears come forth
drop by drop, and roll down her face,
touches it lightly ,she finds it hot with
"Has the doctor seen her today,
"Ho should see her at once. I will
go for him:" and Mrs. Slade starts up,
and goss out quickly from the room.
In a little while she returns with Dr.
Green. who sits down and looks at the
child for some moments. with a sober,
thoughtful face. Then he lays his fin-
gers on her pulse, and times its beat

THE GRAND PICTURESQUE
If the twentieth century has brought
unmeasured opportunities for the
young and rising generation, it has
brought us also tremendous and awful
responsibility. What shall we do for
our children is an infinitely graver
question than what we shall do for
our lands, our forests, our mines, or
for our water power. There are men
in Georgia who are spending fifteen
hundred dollars a year on a three-year-
old colt to develop power of muscle
and speed of limb that the colt may win
a prize on the world's great derby.
Other men are paying a hundred dol-
lars a" season to have pointer dogs in-
telligently trained. If colts and pointer
dogs demand intelligent treatment in
order to secure prize-winning speed on
the race track and reliable pointing of
birds in the field of sport, the legisla-
ture may be sure of it that the intelli-
gent handling of children now is re-
quired in order to maxe men and wo-
men who can stand up and be counted
in the fierce competition for the prizes
of human life. The highest premiums
this world is paying today-are awarded
to men and women with full, well-
rounded and highly developed brain

gent training of colts and dogs, surely
