How to Judge
R railroad Securities
^ wtnam y*** By Alexander D. Noyes.
F*l 4 N studying a railway report, the income account and the bal-
ance-sheet are the principal, and, to the average reader,
f the only guides. The income account-whether monthly,
quarter-ly, semi-annual or annual-gives gross earnings, op-
S M cr ti-,rxp' is, '.l'/r'ls ,t f.any'., and s'irplul,. Souile-
L< ti mtes a report of tlis nature, taken by itself, will tell the
f real story of the company's condition; more often it will
not, because railways have their fat seasons and their lean
sea ns. A railway whose business is largely made up of
carrying grain will sh w up best in October, November and December, when
the harvesting Is over and the wheat or corn or oats move freely to market.
Such a road may show, in its report for the quarter ending September 80, that
its dividend was not earned; yet many earn so great a surplus over dividends
in the ensuing quarter that the preceding deficit will be far more than made
good. So, also, many roads incur so large expenses from heavy snowfall, in
the dead of winter, as to eat up the great bulk of gross earnings; yet other
seasons will compensate. As a rule, the best way to make such allowances is
to compare the statement with the same period's results in the two preceding
years. In the absence of abnormal incident, such as a great blizzard, this
comparison shows the tendency of the business. It does not necessarily show
permanent tendencies; a short crop of wheat or corn, In a given year, leaves
less grain for every road in the district to, carry, and, furthermore, leaves leps
money in the hands of farm communities to use in buying manufactured godds
which the railway expects to carry to them. Yet the next year may bring a'
"bumper" harvest.-The Atlantic.
Rich Men Like Savages
By G. K. Chesterton.
HE Englishman who travels to Scotland first class in order
to have "a carriage to himself all the way" may be a very
nice fellow, but no one can describe him as a civilized man.
He Is yielding to the savage shyabss, the skulking isolation,
of an Ojibway. The same man ias always a terror lest
strangers should speak to him-a thing which is the mark
of undeveloped and illiterate tribesmen all over the world.
Any one who compares a third-class carriage full of navvies
with a first-class carriage ful of oligarchs will at once real-
ise that the primary difference consists simply in the fact that the third-.lass
-carriage is mor ecivilized than the first-class carriage; that is to say, it is
more social, more of a community. It you emptied that third-class carriage
into a field itia ooeil aqte could make a pionio., If you carried that third-olads
carriage through the air to a desert island its occupants,0culd make a nation.
They are used to talking, fighting with each other, and all the other relations
t (sential to a healthy commonwealth. They know how to deal with those of
their company who constitute a temporary problem. They know how to sus-
tain and soothe the moderately drunk, how to rebuke the needlessly and in.
artistically drunk. But when the bodies of six rich men sit side by side their
sOuls do not sit side by side at all. Each of their souls is walking like a say-
age hunter in the silence of ancestral forests. For when all is said and done,
the great practical object of being a rich man is to get out of the ommoao
wealth altogether. It is to get to a position where the rules made for the con.
0no11 good scarcely touch a man at all.--Illustrated London News.

THE KICKAPOOS HAVE FOUND A HOME
IN NEXICO. P :.* :
Tribe Noted For Its Wandering Propensities...Its Remnants
Have Prospered in the Mountains of Mexico, Although
Dying Off on the Tribal Reservation in Kanfas.
IHE, .announcement that George
A. Onteelt, Assistant United
States District Attorney of Ok-
laonia, writes the Guthrle cor-
respondent oif the New York Sun, has
been ordered to love Mexico, where he
was investigating the conditions of the
Kickapoo Indians, brings into the
limelight the most persistent wander-
ers among all Indlin tribes.
During the Civil War the Kickapoos
fled to .M11xico. Later much money
was expendle by the United States
to return them to their reservations
nla Kaisais and Oklahoma. All but 170
members of the tribe did return.
The 170 escaped into the mountains
"'-, Mtwlco and have remained there
over since, increasing it the meantime
to more than five hundred l \it number.
Of the 412 inmnibers brought'bhack to
the Okllahoin reservation there are
to-day but 184 remaining.

lor at Fort Harrison, following the
outbreak of the war with ngland in
1812. Originally the Kickn)oos lived
in the upper Mississippi Rivr country
and belonged to the Algonluln fnam.
Gradually they moved dov n into Ill-
inols and roamed over the euntry be-
tween the Mississippi and VWabash riv-
ers. In the early history of the coun'
try they were bitter toward the Eng-
lish and supported the colonists
against England In the wai for inde-
pendence. Later ticy turned against
the cologiats and a state of war

It was lu 1811 that they fought un-
der Tecumsenl. In 1815-11 treaties
were made with the Government by
which they gave up thail Inan s in Ill-
inois and removed to a reservation in
Kansas on the Osarlo River. Remnants
of the tribe were in Illinois as late as
Following the removal to knansns a
degree of civilization was established
for a few years. Thon the predatory

They were then removed to a roser-
Vation in northern' Kansas, near ATtehi-
son. Some of them gradvally settled
down on separate holdings and becamo
farmers and citizens. Thle remainder
fled to Mexico about the time the Civil
War began and lived by raids over
the frontier fdr booty. In 1873 there
were only 800 in Kansas, while the
number In Mexico had grown to 1000.
After the majority of the Mexican
Kickapoos were returned to the United
States all that was left were removed
from the frontier by Mexico at the re-
quest of the United States, and set-
tled on good lands in the mountains of
the State of Guerrero. They longed
for their old home around Santa Rosa,
1200 miles to the north, and gradually
drifted back there.

Klckapoos as industrious, skillful hunt.

of them have become farmers and ex-

clothing being made of buckskin and
trimmed with beads, the squaws be-

At the present time very few Kick-

They have flocked to their kinsmen in
Mexico whenever an opportunity has
presented itself. Their removal was
first opposed by the Government, but
finally they were allowed to move

The term "deadheads" is in various
connections very much to the fore at
the present time. IHow did .it arise
Its origin is purely transatlantic.
Sixty years ago all the principal ave-
nues of the ofty of Delaware Jed in
one direction, to a tollgate close to the
Elmwood Cemetery road. Thrs cenme-
tery having been laid out long before
the construction of the plank road be-
yond the tollgate, funeral processions
were allowed to pass along it toll tree.
One day as Dr. Price, a well-known
physician, stopped to pay his toll, he
observed to the gatekeeper,
"Considering the benevolent charac-
ter of the profession to which I have
the honor to belong, you ought to let
us pass toll free."'
"No, no, doctor," the man replied,
"we can't afford that. You send too
many deadheads through here as it is."
This story soon traveled far and wide
until the term came to be applied to
any one who claims the privilege of
traveling on a railway system or pass-

were to get in exchange other lauds

During the last year an Inspector
for the Indian Department was thwart-
ed while attempting to secure evidence
in Mexico, although he went there
after assurances had been given by the
Mexican Government to Minister Con-
ger that hoe would be allowed to pro-
ceed with the work. The investiga-

and it was on this business that As-

The KIcekpoos are a pure race, nev*
er having Intermarried with whites or
blacks. This is due to their religion.
Within a few years a Kicknpoo girl
was wooed by a white man and he
had every reason to -believe that she
would marry him. She persistently re-
fused and, pressed for an, explana-
tion, she said; "
"You tii'e fair to look' toIon and

Love him as she might, yet -she
loved her race more and refused ils

that none of hins tribe has ever be-
come a Christipn.
The Kickapoos in Mexico are ruled
at the present time by a woman chief,
known as Wapaboka. She is about
forty-five years old and her title is in-
herited. She has had much to do In
getting the remnants of the tribe inu
Oklahoma to come to Mexico, as hft
advice to them has ever been to leave
the United States for that country.
Whenever they have lived any
length of time by the water the Kick-
apoos havb become famous as swim-
mers. This woul4 not be peculiar if
the tribe had lived on the coast or on
an Island; they, however, are an In-
land tribe. The most expert of Kicka-
poo swimmers have been'known to re-
main under water for two minutes.
News of the satisfaction of the Kick-
apoos with their new locality has .
spread among the fullbloods of other
tribes in Indian Territory, and a plan
is now on foot whereby all fullbloods
will move to Mexico and colonize there.
The Indians are willing to disp6se of
their lands in order to make the trans-
fer, and many of them are so anxious..
for the change that unless prevented
they will not remain long enough to
dispose of their lands.

The Inspector asked the boys of the
school he was examining: "Can you

"Yes, sir," was the response. "Can

"No, sir." "Why not?"

the llbary he suddenly appeared and
laid a paper before her. She caught
,her breath. It was the paper she had
signed in the executive office.
"I have come' for the fulfillment of

Where the Taurtle I at Ho'me.
Few of those who revel in turtle

have visited the desolate, uninviting

In that land of perpetual sun, where
roads are not and ruts plowed afresh
In the shifting sand serve their pur-
pose, the turtle is a powerful asset. In
dark, cool sheds lie large masses of
eggs, looking for all the world like golf

Why the Bread Cams Back.
A boy who had been working in a
baker's shop for some time was just
about to finish his trade. One night
when the boss was gone he broke the
marble slab he molded his loaves on,
so he went to the marble yard to se-
cure another, but could not find one.
On the way back fie passed a grave-
yard, and, as it was very dark, he
jumped over and pulled up a small
headstone about the right siae and
too k t back and finished his ob. The
next day, after the bread had been de-
livered, nearly all of it was sent back.
The baker looked at it and broke sev-
eral loaves open, but found noting
wrong. Then he happened to turn one
of the loaves over, and found on the
under side 0 every loaf the insorlp.

heard a noise which quickly con-

matter with the horse's wind.'
"That animal's a roarer," he said.
"Effendi," returned the Turkish

but he is stout and strong. He will

As the horse was sound in every

Barnaby decided to buy him; but he
told the owner that the fact of the

from Its value, and he must take

Danger of Relying on Secroecy to Pro'
tot' at Process.
Some years ago the Goldschmidt
Ccmpany, of lssen, Germany, per.
fected a process of detlnning tin
scrap, but instead of patenting the
process they depended on secrecy to
make It profitable. The usual result
ot suoh practice followed. Two of
the employes knowing the secret,
proved unfaithful and sold their
knowledge to a concern which com-
menced the work In Holland and from"
there It was brought to America. The
American concern in turn was served
in the manner. The result was
that undesirable competition was es-
tablished by twb plants, one at Pauls.
boro, N. J., and the other at Jolliet, Ill.
The company first on the ground in
this country commenced suit again
I the competitor, seeking to enjoin them
from using the knowledge obtained
through the defection of one. of their
employes. The case was thrown out
at court, as the court would not stain

ing good standing. The operation of
a plant on the principle of,socrecy
puts a premium on dishonesty. The

adequate protection for most inven-
tions and discoveries; If that proteo,

TIHE REV, RM'DONALD,
"Deauty: Holy to Keep It,"
BROOKLYN, N. Y.-Sunday even-
Ing the Rev. Robert MacDonald, pas-
tor of the. Washington Avenue Bap-
tist Church, preached to young wo.
men. His subject was "Beauty: How
to Keep It." His text was from Pro.
verbs iv., 23, "Keep -thy heart with
all diligence, for out of it are the Is-
sues of life." Mr. MacDonald said:
What ha's such a text to do with
beauty? Everything. The source is
the heart. Beauty of character de-
pends on quality of heart. Every
thought, desire, acntiment, ambition,
that enters the heart is ,sooner or
later expressed In character and con-
duct. All, the life issues radiate from
that center. And when the, writer of
the Proverbs tells us to keep the
heart with all diligence, he speaks
the foundation word of all wisdom and
carries us back to the primary cause
of truth or error, righteousness or
sin. We have already seen in this
series that beauty of character is a
divine possession, existing only where
truth holds 'sway, And that we can
never satisfy the claims of Almighty
God until we give back to Him that
which is possible to us all-beauty
of character, Instead of illformed,
homeup, unsymmetrical lives. What
Michael Angelo said once to a young
artist about his statue applies to us
all. "Do not trouble too much about
the light on your statue. The light
of the public square will test its val.
ue." Sol the light of the public square
beyond, which is the light of God's
countenance, the unerring 'light of
judgment, will be the test of our char.
acters. All modelling, all building,
should be with the light of eternity's
public square in mind. We are all
under obligation, a contract based on
and rdoted in our very constitution,
to build for eternity, Inasmuch as the
Creator has marked out a celestial
destiny, for tus all, and it ought to be
our chief business to conform to that
* gracious provision which will mean
realization along all infinite lines
throughout the eternal years. Be

control, No beauty. atcL.,4i;niator can
be where there Is no self-control,
'Daniel Webster was once asked which
he thought the greatest virtue. It was
just after one of his most powerful
speeches, but in which, interrupted
and contradicted by the opposing
counsel, he lost his temper, and also
the case he was pleading. That even-
ing, in the course of conversation, he
was asked the question, and answer-
ed, "Self-control, and it is' the most
difficult, too." 'TIs true, young wo-
men. It is. an underlying principle,
including a host of greater virtues.
Who has not felt sorply the need of
greater self-control. Patience is rep-
resented In the Scriptures as the very
fruitage of Christianity, but patience
Is only, a constituent part of self-con-
trol-namely, self-control in pain, In
affliction. Very Christ-like it is,. En-
durance of wrong treatment. Misun-
derstanding. So easy to dbmplain, and
be disagreeable when the sky is dull,
and the way drear. I refer not to
that patience that springs from our
natural disposition, which is purely
temperamental. Constitutional hero-
lam Is good, but it does not stand the
strain. A patience that fails at the
hardest point, Is weak all through.
Nothing short of the Christ type of
patience will suffice.
But not only self-control In pain,
also in pleasure, another name for
which'Is temperance. Young ladles
need to be temperate as well as young
men. I am not referring to the liquor
question, although never more need
than to-day for temperance there, but
to the whole problem of living. To

It is also negative. But it Is neither
passive nor negative until certain ac-

in and make it so. I mean by self-
forgetfulness the becoming oblivious
to those desires and dinm.ndt of your
nature, the remembrance of which
make you self-contained and ill at

become so, possess faith, belief in

Ah, you say, you are beguiling us Into
religion. Just so. Did you dream
you could possess beauty of character
without being religious? We desire to
proclaim nothing other than the old
gospel. But to set it before you in
now dress and under an attractive,
bewitching title. A man hearing the
second sermon of this series forced
his'way to the pulpit after it was
done, and exclaimed, "I thought you
would be sensational. The subject
looked it. but you everlastingly
preached Christ to-night. I am both
* disappointed and.pleased." Yes. That's
where the effectiveness of the gospel
Comes in. It refuses to be suppressed.
SNo topic, if the preacher be true, can
" strike home, however roundabout the
journey it takes, without meeting
Christ 'somewhere In the way. And
when the meeting takes place, Jesus
always gains the central place, and
glides Into our consciousness as the
hope of glory. Christ's place of resi-
dence is in the heart. He is the God-
destined Master of Ceremonies. He
directs the, life issues that emanate
from that citadel of attack and de-
fense, Let Him in and all Is well.
Then it is easy to keep the heart
with all diligence. Remember, the
heart's emphasis is always right.
Emerson said another lasting thing.
What the heart deems great Is great.
The Master of Men as our Master
will see to It that all the life issues
will be true and beautiful. Borrow
will not corrode those outgoing tides
of affection. Sin will not weaken
them. Death will not obliterate nor
overwhelm them. Nor eternity ex-
haust them. God till recognize the
beauty and exotaim, "Well done; on,

EGGS! AR1 CUPID'8 MESSENGERS.
Westq'n Girls Write Names on 'Emr
ind Invite Correspondence.
Perhaps the queerest way of ad.
vertising for matrimonial purposes is
that Of placing names and addresses
on egos. During each year there are
upwards of 600,000 oases of eggs re-
ceived In Denver from Kansas, Nc.'
'braskt, Oklahoma, Txas and Colo-
rado Iloints, and it is safp tou ay wh4
26,000! names and addressees of womet
and 'nen with matrimonial Intentions
are fMuOp in the cases.
Kan as holds ohe record for. having
the mqst eliglbles,. Hardly a case of
eggs r ceived from Kansas but has
from o ue to a dozen names of young
umanS desirous of. w=94*445
"with ni atrimonial intentions.
'Thn system is widely known to
men ip the produce business and to
mountainers. Young women'Iln tlt
rural districts write their name a&N.
address on the egg. They request the'
Ander :to write them. The eggs a*)
received in Denver, packed an4
ehlpped to the grooory, in which way
the- engs .pass through dozens of dif.
fteent hleds. As soon as an egg
bearing 4 name is found many take
it upon themselves to answer.
Thoe who' are out for fun ea get
all thiy want and many of the com-
missiop men make oondiderable sport
of it. One fellow answered a young
woman* at Berthoud, Col. The man
who 4Id the writing is about 6 feet
2 inelea tall and weighs about 120
pound He Is 40 years old, but this
is the way he described himself: "I
am 28 years old, weigh 145 pounds, S
feet t inches in height, dark brown
hair, olaok eyee. I am single and
never wore a mustache. I have two
suite of olofhing and a trunk large
enough to hold a dosen."
The answer came by return mall.
Thti Is the way the girl described
herself: "I am 17 years old,, weigh
165 pounds, 5 feet tall, light hair
and blum eyes." She expressed her-'
Belf as 'being glad to, have made his
