We smile and laugh when aching heart
With every throb proclaims a smart;
We nass the careless, jesting word,
When, aye, if only could be heard
Its echo true-a cry wouldd be
Of wild despair and mockery.
We dance and seem to quite forget-
That burning tears our'pillows wvet,
The throng knows not; ]o. if they knew,
Of all that press our hand, how few
Would understand-beget one thought
With sympathy and kindness fraught.

That others may be right;
Just tihe sweet reflection
That somewhere it is bright,
Although the sky above you
May not be soft or blue-
Some worthy one to love you.
And a heart that's b ave and true.
Respect for God's creation,
Love for your fellow-man;
A brave determination
To do the best yoa can!
An ear that's deaf to scandal,
And trust to Himi above
That no pernicious vandal
Shall come to rob you of!

Kathryn's Late-t Fad.
Of all the pretty, pleasing pictures,
That my eyes e'er gazed upon.
It was Kathryn, when I saw her
With a sowwhite apron on;
Mixing up some dainty dishes,
As she scorned my doubtful look,
Saying. "'When you're asked to eat sir,
You may then reproach the cook!",
Since Miss Kathryn has been going
Some weeks past to cooking school,
Where they apeasure the ingredients
Of a pie by metric rule,
She will sit for hours reading,
Feasts she says for me she'll cook,
Till at times I want to cremate
Not the cook-O, no! the book.

Descending to the lower hallway,
we passed through a long, dreary
roomi, then down niarow stone step'
into a capacious cellar, walled onil ev-

remarked with a chuckle. "Ten
years is a very long time for a mania

his words and mannerr.

"Y n think my actions strange. But

"Yes, Mr. Hope, you shall have the

"Take a seat," he continued,
pushing a cask towards me, uponi
which I dropped,. not certain that 1
was not in the presence of a nmadman.
Taking up a bottle, fihe brushed the
cobwebs irom it, then, breaking off
lie nerk, passed it to me, saying:
"Take a pull. It's damp in this
cellar, and this will take the chill oatt
of your blood. This is an excellent

His laugh made me shiver. It
sounded like the exultation of a
fieud. But I declined the wine and
Parton himself drained the bottle.
You've never heard of Judson
Pickford," lie asked.
"Of course not. That was before
you came, and it isn't likely that.ex-
cellent Messrs. Dillard & Hatch
would mention hinim to you. But they
could tell you a great deal about
Judson if they were so disposed."
-'Judson Pickfo.d was a strange,
dark man. I met him first in soci-
ety in Baltimore, and strange to say,
many declared that there was strong
resemblance between Picktord and.
Parton. Be that as it may, fate de-
creed that we should both love the
same girl-beautiful, winsome Mabel
Raymond. I loved her from the
hour we first met, and I've no doubt
my rival's passion was as intense as
my own. I was a rich wine mer-
chant, vnd Pickford a wealthy, bril-
liant stock-broker. Both of us vow-
ed to win Miss Raymond, but from
the first I saw that she favored Pick-
ford's suit. This made me hate my
rival with the deepest hatred. Alter
they were married I went about lor
months like one stupefied. In losing
tlhe only woman I loved I lost all in-
terest in life. I drank heavily, but
the more I drank the more I felt my-
self urged on to revenge. Then I
began to lay plans for Pickford's
When he and his wife were in Eu-
rope I saw an excellent chance to
mature my scheme for his destruc-
tion. 1 first converted all my prop-
erty into cash. Then I came to this
secluded place and had this house
built where 1 might live apart from
the world I hated. Afterward I went
to Dillard & Hatch and placed five
hundred thousand dollars in their
bank. I knew Dillard to be a noted
schemer, so I took him into my con-
fidence, and got his promise to help
heart. ie moved inio plainer quar-
ters and took up the practice of law,
a profession which lie I ad followed
before lie became a stock-broker. But
my vengeance was not yet satisfied.
Mind you, though, I took paiha nev-
er to let him suspect I was even
most remotely connected with the
cause of hi ruin.
"Just when Pickford was having
his halde't struggle I went to him
with an offer to start him in busi-
ness. He gratefully accepted my of-
for. I sent him alone to New York
witat a large sum of money Then,
disguising mysif, I followed him. In
i he city I .iweoveo my dl4januixo and
unught out Pickford, telling hult I
had changed my plans for him. 1
4direeted him to come here the next
niahlt, but to tell no one of our hns-
iness. He kept the appointment.
We met at the station six miles
below the hills, and walked here to
this house. It was a very dark
night. No one saw us. He was
fond of wine, so aftei I had urged
many a glass upon him I candncted
him to this vault. In his drunken
conlii.,tii I had no trouble to, get hkn
to enter it. Then I shut and locked
that irnii door lupn him. He liad
only a cask of wine to keep himn
company. That was ten years ago,
and that door has never been opened

A low laugh from the narrate r
ended hiis grewsome tale, while a
glainl of fiendish triumph flitted
across his swarthy face.
A cold chill crept tip my spine,
and I arose involuntarily.

ings of a manaaiac?

Wh,-n I reached the bank I gave
the letter to Mr. Dillard. As he
read it his face turned a sickly hue
and his month twitched nervously.
Recovering himself, however, he or-
dered Hatch and me to open the
cask which Parton had sent him.
We obeyed at once. As the top
of the cask was broken open, we
started back in horror.

Then Dillard explained that
his letter was from Judson Pick-
ford, who with the help of Negro Joe,
who hated his harsh master, Caleb
Parton, had effected his escape from
the vault. But a month later, his
wife having died, Pickford returned
one dark night and killed thle man
who had so cuelly ruined him. The
head of his enemy had been put in
the cask of wine to send to the bank-
er, who had aided in accomplishing
his financial ruin. With peculiar
cunning, he had appropriated not
only the name and looks of Parton,
but his property and bank account
as well. In carrying out this decep-
tion he had a faithful ally in Negro
It was Picktord himself who had
related the dark story to me. It
seemed almost incredible. A visit to

when they take the form of incipient

the salesman, "and can guarantee that
It won't vary a fraction of a second.
We've never allowed it to run down."
The prospective purchaser, who look-

ejaculated. "Why, It's stopped now."
"That's very strange," said the sales-
The man again placed the watch to

When Horaes Go to Sleep.
It Is not generally known that at
least four out of every ten horses do
not lie down to sleep. The horse that
sleeps in a. standing position rests one
leg at a time, depending on the other
three to sustain the weight of his body.
The habit is a very dangerous one. On-
ly a short time since a fine horse in the
stables of a big manufacturing concern
Went to sleep while standing in his
stall and fell heavily to the floor, break-
ing one of his legs,. A great many
horses are permanently injured as a re-
sult of accidents of this nature, and
there Is no way of curing them of the

Causes For Suicide In China.
So far as I have been able. to ascer-
tain, the causes of suicide in China are
not, as in Europe, profound melan-
cholia, heavy l<,--s oir dinlip- .,tiut.-ijl
in love, but 'Ii' il1y rev,-gU' and the de-
sire to inflict serious injury on another.
Suicide enables a Chinese to take a
truly terrible revenge, for he believes
that his spirit will malignantly haunt
and injure the living, and the desire to
save a suicide's life arises in most cases
not from humanity, but from the hope
of averting such a direful catastrophe.
If a master offends his servant or
makes hfm "lose face" or a shopkeeper
his assistant or apprentice, the surest
revenge is to die on the premises, for it
not only involves the power of haunt-
ing and of inflicting daily injuries, but
renders it necessary that the body
should lie where death occurs until an
official inquiry is made, which brings
into the house the scandal and turmoil
of a visit from a mandarin with a body
of officials and retainers.
It is quite common for a man or wo-
man to walk into the courtyard of a
person against whom he or she has a
grudge and take a fatal dose of opium
there to insure these desirable results!

Danger of Being Too Obliging.
The other evening, while attending a
lecture, Howard Tomkins observed, sit-
ting three seats in front, a man whom
he recognized as an intimate acquaint-
ance. Tomkins requested the person
who occupied the sent next to him to
lean forward and poke the other indi-
vidual with his stick. The polite stran-
ger at once obligingly did so.
When the disturbed person turned
his head a little to find out the cause of
the poke, Tomkins discovered his mis-
take-that he was not the person he
had taken him for.
Fixing his attention steadfastly on
the lecturer and affecting complete un-
consciousness of the whole affair, Tom-
kins left the obliging man with the
stick to settle with the other for dis-
tir-bance. There was, as may be readi-
ly imagined, a ludicrous and embar-
rassing scene, during the whole of
which Tomkins evidenced the pro-
foundest possible interest in the lec-

We drove out in my brother's buggy,

glimpse of the distant sea horizon I
rose in the buggy, shouting, "The sea,

zy caught the whip from my brother's
hand and slashed the horse In wild de-
lirinum, unconscious of what I was do-
ing. The emotion remains Ineffaceable
after more than threescore years, one
of the most vivid of my life.
And how ecstatic was the sensation
of the plunge into the breakers, holding
fast to my brother's hlana, and then the
race up the beach before the next

A former member of tile Gordon
highlanders relates the fuIllown ane-
dote in connection with oiwy of I he I I
Gordons who fought in the .Auglo-B,r ..
war of I-1 : Just before tl.e -hatnle of
Laingsnek the highlanders and a T'fr,-e
of the Boers were lying under cover
opposite each other. The highlanders
had been ordered to remain still and
hold their fire. Presumably the Boers \ "
had received similar commands, for,
with the exception of one burgher and
one Gordon, who could not refrain
from taking pot shots at so much of Crl
each other as they could descry, the
men on both sides were silent. --
For some time the Boer and the high-
lander referred to conducted a duel.
First the Boer would bob up from be-
hind his shelter, fire at the highlander's
cover and drop out of sight. The high- "/
lander would jumpI up, reply and then C
hurriedly hide himself. About 20 shots c
had been exchanged in that way when ()
an exclamation of pain burst from the
lips of the highlander. Ills left hand
had been shattered by one of the
Boer's bullets. .
"That serves ye richt, MacKenzie,"
said his sergeant. "Ye waur tell'd tae
"Hoot mon!" replied the highlander.

and see to it that no woman had
private conversation with him, my in-
structions being, if they endeavored to
do so. to hurry him home, resorting,
if necessary, to pretended cramps, a
sickness to which I was predisposed.
And my office was not an easy one,
for he had in his day been quite a
blade and had never lost his edge, and
the vigilance I had to exercise to keep
him from harm would have saved a
congregation, of ordinary sinners. He
would always wink his scorched eyes
at the girls we met and occasionally
e stop to speak with them,.despite my
8 tugging at his coa fsnd ha.la M cramps.
All his transgressions I would report
. at home, and my mother would then
s blacken the characters of the young la-
n dies in question to a degree that satan
Himself would not have associated
with them without wearing an amulet.
9 By these and similar means we saved
him for a year, and might have saved
him to the day of his death had I not
' been taken down with my first love
affair and become correspondingly
mushy. How true it Is that lovers are
the tenpins of the gods! Being mushy,
I fell to playing his Isolation from femi-
nine charpjs and was thereby led, on
the 14th of a February, to sending him
a valentine-a. pair of plump red
hearts splirted Qn a golden arrow. It I
Sdul- -lnter it was delivered
e to him. Thai evening, being a Wednes-
day, my wmther went, as was her in-
violate cus om, to prayer meeting, leav-
ing. me on guard. As the door closed
behind her Uncle David got out of hig
chair and ent to the window.
S"She's a1 )ord." he said, peering out
"There's a Ight on her port side."
"A what said I, knowing I must
report the *.mark.

"No, sir." said I faintly. "Did your'
He did not answer.
h "Do you know when you are going to
wear a wateh?" he asked suddenly.
I was going to say when he died, but
thought better of it.
s "I do," he went on; "tomorrow. It
*is in my cheat. It doesn't go, but when
you want to know the time you can run
- home and find out."
"Of course," I exclaimed joyfully.
* "Why not?'
A "Answer yourself." he said. "To-
Smorrow it is yours. Tonight we are
going out. Fetch me my feathers."
I got between him and the door.
s "Come to think," he said, eying me
g sharply, "Ithe watch does go, and there
e is a chain to it."
Eve got only an apple. What would
e she have done for a watch? Without a
a word I brought him his best suit,
! which he always spoke of as his
feathers, from the press in my moth-
er's room anfd where she was keeping
it against his funeral.
"You can't get them on," I said
f hopefully, noting their size.
s "No more have I for 30 years," he
answered, "but I can pull In. if you
d hear me ripping, look sharp and turn
e me the other way. There is a charm
Sto the chain."
He should have mentioned the
t charm, for the rapidity with which I
- got him into his clothing damaged his
wind, but when I had him crowded
into them he looked fine, barring
alarming symptoms of suddenly com-
e Ing out of, th.e at all points. As
t soon as he was dressed we started,

n It was Miss Hannah Baxter's house.
e and I did not consider Miss Hannah
1- at all dangerous, she being my moth-
t. er's bosom friend and with a reputa-
n tdon as a man hater, having once in
- public meeting prayed for the saving
a, of men, whom she designated as de-
' throne, devils. In response to my
uncle's knock, Miss Hannah opened
d the door.
e "The Lord save us!" she exclaimed
n Iklhospitably. "Is it you?"
e. "It is," said my uncle, snapping for
', breath, being much blown from walk-
1, ing and the tightness of his garments.

It was the one thing my uncle should
tiot have done, for as he touched the
settle there were ripping sounds, and I
knew,. should have trouble in getting
him out of the house. He was but lit-
"She's let go all over," he said calm-
ly and then, "Hannah Baxter, come
"I won't," said Miss Hannah, stand-
ing on the other side of the fireplace.
"I won't! Why should I?"
"Because you have done it again!"
said uiy uncle. "After 30 years you've
done It again, red hearts and all. You
know what I said I'd do if you done it
Miss Hannah started. "I never!" she
exclaimed. "I never!"
"You did!" shouted my uncle. "Ben-
nie, fetch her here!"
I hesitated, but suddenly remember-
ing the watch, I sprang upon her and.
catching her around the waist, began
pulling her toward the settle, my uncle
encouraging me by cries of "Bravo!"
and by pounding on the settle-with his
wooden hand. She was no match for
me, and so, though she fought valiant-
ly, I soon landed her on the settle.
Then, to my horror, my uncle grabbed
her and repeatedly kissed her on what-
ever part of the face came convenient-
ly to 'lis lips, for she still struggled,
though hardly as a virgin of 50 should
have struggled. '

desire to be liberated. and as my" uncle
beat me soundly on the head with his
wooden hand. I desisted and took to
cramps on the floor. This had no effect
whatever, so I recovered, and, rushing
from the house, ranl to the church
where my mother was. and. dashing up
the aisle, whispered to her the dreadful
news that Uncle David was kissing
Miss Hannah Baxter.
Never will I forget the look that over-
spreaJ her face. Ever a woman of
prompt thought and action, she then
aul there boxed my cars and, this
done, hurried out and ran as fast as
she could to Miss Hlannah's, 1 follow-

terrible. I was glad when she left off
beating on the door and fell to beating
me. for I knew that she wouhl feel bet
ter for it, and that I would- have so
munch less to receive later uon. Not-
withstanding, I cried lustily, and.
chur-.h having been hastily dismissed,
a crowd quickly gathered, and as I
was crying "Murder!" the rumor got
afloat that Miss lHannah was murder-
ing U'ncle David. Some of the men
were for breaking down the door and
would certainly have done so had not

"You shall!" screamed my mother.
For answer my uncle deliberately
put his arm around Miss Hannah i nd
kissed her. My mother fainted, but no
sooner had she touched the ground
than she was again on her feet.
"Stop it!" she screamed. "Stop it!
You ain't ntarried!"
He again kissed Miss Hannah.
"Break down the door!" commanded
Tt was nn exciting moment. Al-
though half of the crowd were laugh-
ing, some of the men threw theniselve.s
against the door. My uncle leaned over
the window sill.
"We ain't married." he shouted. "bui
we're going to be. and there isn't anl
power on earth can stop it, because(
I'm not coming out," and he shook his
fist in the direction of my mother,

Another half hour passed, and the

"Nice road. professor."
The teacher responded, "Do you real-

The matriculate began to boil In his

but he managed to again blurt out.
"Clouds seem to be filling up with rain,
professor." to which the answer was:
"Do you really think so?"

The Judge's Afildavrit.
Some years ago Justice of the Peace
Beasley of Missouri was personally in-
terested in a lawsuit, being a party
thereto. It was necessary for him to
make an affidavit, and he deprecated
the idea of making it before another
justice or a notary and depriving him-
self of a fee. So le tilled out his affi-
davit, swore to it before himself, sign-
ed it as justice and as witness and
awaited developments. Hle 'as sure
that he would win uanl this ibe able to

When the case cante up before Judge
Kelley, the affidavit was offered in evi-
dence and promptly objected to, the
reason being given that a justice could
not swear himself.
"Let me see the affidavit," said Judge
It was banded up to the judge, who
scanned it carefully for a few mo-
ments and then asked:
"Mr. Beasley, will you kindly te!l me
how you appeared before yourself
when you swore yourself and idoutitied
your own signature?"
"That was very easy. your honor,"
replied Beasley. "I borrowed .a look-
