went very high behind, but was good

Lady Thorn for Lien Carver.

is: "Mace wanted lo give her a trial

Track. This was one o'clock in the

her the mile In 2:10. After the trial

Thorn. I replied 1 did. and 1 told him
the exact time that I caught the mile,

Half-mllo track racing Is each year
becoming more and more popular with
the race-going public, and the time Is
not far distant when many of tlie
largest American meetings will be held
over thc two-lap tracks. The Goshen,
N.Y., association held a very successful Grand Circuit meeting over their
half-mile track last season, and others
will probably follow In tho near future.
Tlio class of horses which race over
lhe half-mile- tracks nowadays Is ns

UlO big tracks, consequently tho racing
at a number of the most important
half-mile tracks is much more exciting
than that witnessed on the big line.

at Youngstown, ■■■. in 2.10 flat, a mun- ;

Le Petit Hois Franc, Temtacouta Co.,
Quo.—(Special)—Ernest St.  Pierre, a
well-known farmer of this place, is
telling his neighbors of bis almost
miraculous cure from Bright. Disease,
and ho always winds up with:
"I advise all persons suffering from
Backache or Brfghfs Disease to use
Dodd's Kidney Pills." For like thousands of other sufferers in Canada Mr.
st. Pierre found his cure in thc good
old Canadian Kidney remedy,
And his indeed was n particularly
i-ad case. UlS eyes were puffed and
swollen, his appetite was fitful and be
was always tired and nervous, While
the pains in his back made any form
of work something io be avoided. Today he is strong and well. Six boxes

thoro bo same deeper moaning behind
it. H Has been suggesto'd that eye-
color may bo v;*lu:*ble as a criterion
of race, and perhaps it will bo after
jlong investigation and study have disclosed the factor, upon which ihe varieties depend. •
At   present   the   OUgonlstS   are   strilg- -
gling with tho problem of whether evo-
color is ool associated with chemical
difference- Influencing the character of
the individual. It has been pointed
out that in th.* National Portrait Qujr
.lory in London the pictures of cole-
I In at ed men and women are largely
groupod according to the vocatlonsUn
whicli they have won fame, nnd that
there is a tendency for a given type
of eye-color to predominate iii Rome of
the larger groups.
For example, it *s rare to find anything bul blue oyes among, the soldiers
and sailors, while among the actors,
preachers, and orators the dark eye is
predominant, although for the population as a whole it is fur scarier than
the light. Is there not here a. suggestion that future generations—perhaps even our own generation—-may discover an intimate connection between
eye-color and mental characteristics?
If sueh a discovery should be mado,
what a tremendous impetus it would
give to the study of human boreditV!
It would bo the opening wedge to the
problem of the Inheritance of mind and
character. It might lead to such a development of the science of eugenics
that parents could form at least some
idea of tiie mentality and character of
their future offspring.

The Haunted Orchard
{By   Richard   Le   Gallienne)
Spring was once moro in thu world.
As she Bung to herself In the Caraway
woodlands hor voice reached even the
ears of tlie city, weary with the long
winter. Daffodils flowered at the entrances to tbe Subway, furniture
moving vans blocked the side street-,
children clustered like blossoms on the
doorstops, tlie open ears were running
and llie cry of the "cash clo'" man
was once more heard In the lund.
Yes, it was the spring, and the city
dreamed wistfully of lilacs und lhe
dewy piping of birds In gnarled old
apple-trees, of dogwood lighting up
with sudden silver the thickening
woods, of water-plants unfolding their
glossy scrolls ln pools of morning
On Sunday mornings, the outbound
trains Were thronged wllh eager pilgrims, hustanlng out of the city, to he-
hold once more the ancient marvel of
the spring; and, on Sunday evenings.
the railway termini were utlower with
banners of blossom from rilled woodland and orchard carried lu tin* bands
of tho returning pilgrims, whoso eyes
still shone with tin* spring magic, In
whose i-arii siill sung tho fairy music.
And ns l behold those signs or the
vernal equinox, I It now Hint I, too,
must follow tlie music, fo run lie awhile
the beautiful siren we call tbe city,
and In the green silences meet etico
more my sweetheart Solitude.
As the train drew out of the Hi,I ml
Central, I hummed to mysolf:
"l'vo  n  neater,   SWOelor   niablen,   In   u
ereenel*.   cleniicr   luiul"-
aml so 1 suid gooit-hy to tbo city, and
went forth wllh beating heart to meet
the spring.
1 had been told tif an almost forgotten corner on lho south const of Connecticut, where the spring and 1 could
live in an Inviolate loneliness—a place
uninhabited save by birds anil blossoms, woods and thick grass, and an
occasional silent fanner, and pervaded
by the breath and shimmer uf tlio
Nor had rumor lied, for wliei the
train set me down at my destination
1 supped out Into the most wonderful
green bush, a leafy Sabbath silence,
through which the very train, as it
went farther on its way, seemed to
steal as noiselessly as possible for fear
of breaking the spell,
A fur o winter in the town, to be
dropped thus suddenly lnio the intense
quiet of the country-side makes an almost ghostly impression upon one, as
of an enchanted silence, a silence that
listens and watches bul never speaks,
linger on lip. There Is a spectral
quality about everything upon Which
tbe eye falls: the woods, like great
green clouds, lhe wayside (lowers, the
still farm-houses half lost in orchard
bloom- -all seem to e:*ist In a dream.
Everything is so still, everything so
supernaturally green. Nothing moves
or talks, except the gentle susurrus of
the spring wind swaying the young
buds high up in tbe quiet sky, or a
bird now ami again, or a little brook
singing softly to itself among tho
crowding rushes.
Though from the houses one notes
here and tliere, there nre evidently human inhabitants of this green silence,
none are to by seen. I have often wondered where the countryfolk hide
themselves, as 1 have walked hour after hour, past farm and croft and lonely door-yards, and never caught sight
of a human face, if you should want
to ask tlu* way, a farmer Is as shy as a
squirrel, and If you knock at a farmhouse door, al) is silent as a rabbit-
As 1 walked along in the enchanted
stillness, I came at length to a quaint
old farm-house—"old Colonial" in its
architecture—embowered in white lilacs, and surrounded hy an orchard of
ancient apple-trees which cast a rich
shade, on tbe deep spring grass. The
orchard hud tho improssiveness ot
those old religious groves, dedicated
to the strange worship of sylvan gods,
gods to be found now only in Horace
or Catullus, and In tlie hearts of young
poets to whom the beautiful antique
Latin is still dear.
The old houso seemed already tlie
abode of Solitude. As I lifted tho
latch of the white gnte und walked
across the forgotten grass, and up on
to the veranda already festooned with
wistaria, and looked luto the windows,
1 saw Solitude sitting by an old piano,
on whieh no composer inter than Uach
had ever been played.
In other word:), I lie house was empty;
and going round to tho back, where
old barns and stnblcs leaned together
as if falling asleep, I found a broken
pane, anil so climbed in and walked
through the echoing rooms. The house
wus very lonely. Evidently no one
hud lived in It for u long lime. Yet
It wus nit ready for some occupant,
for whom lt seemed to lie waiting.
Quaint old four-poster bedsteads stood
In three rooms—dimity curtains and
spotless linen—old oak chests and mahogany presses; and, opening drawers
In Chippendale sideboards, I came upon
beautiful frail old silver uud exquisite
China that set me thinking of a beau-
lllful grandmother 0( mine, made out of
l old luce und laughing wrinkles and
; mischievous old  blue eyes.
There was one little room that pnr-
1 tlOU lar ly interested me, a tiny bedroom
I alt while, uml ul tbe window the red
| roses were already in bud. Hut what
I caught my eye wllh peculiar sympathy
I was n small bookcase, in which were
I some twenty or thirty volumes, Wear-
j Ing the some forgot ton expression—
| forgotten and yot cared for—which lay
j like n kind of memorial charm upon
j everything lu the old house. Ves.
I everything seemed forgotten and yet
I everything, curiously—oven religiously
-remembered,   i took out book after
Ihook from Ibo shelves, once or twice
I flowers fell out from the pages—nnd I
'•aught sight of n delicate handwriting

very rare edition nf Konsurd, a beautifully printed edition of Alfred de Mussel, and a copy of Theophlle Gautier's
"Mademoiselle de Muupin." How did
these exotic books come to bo thero
alono in u deserted New l_nglund farmhouse?
This question was to be answered
later in a strange way. Mounwhile, 1
had fallen ln love with thc sad, old,
silent place, and ns 1 closed the white
gale and was onco more on tho road,
1 looked about for someone wbo could
tell mo whether or not this house of
gliosis might he rented by a comparatively living mun.
I was referred to a tine old New England farm-house shining white through
lhe trees u quarter of a mile nway.
There I mot an ancient couple, a typical New Bn gland fanner and Ills wife;
Ihe old man, lean, chin-beurded, with
koon gray eyes nickering occasionally
wilh n shrewd buiiiur, the old ludy Willi
u kindly old face of tlio wlthored-applo
lypO and ruddy. Tbey were evidently
prosperous people, but tbelr minds-
lor some reason 1 could not at tlie moment    divine  -seemed     lo     be    divided
between tbeir New England doslre to
drive a hard bargain and tbelr disinclination  to  lei   tlie  house ut   all.
Over and over again Ihey BpoltC of
lhe loneliness of the place: They roared 1 would Iind il very lonely. No one
bad lived tu It for a long lime, aud so
on,     II   seemed   lo   me   tbnt  afterwards
t understood their curious hosltnllon,
but at llie moment 1 only regarded it
as a part of tlie circuitous New Eng-
land method of bargaining, At all
events, the rent i offered finally overcame their dislneliuulion, whatever its
cause, and so 1 cume Into possession-*—
for four months—of thut silent old
houso, witli tin* white lilacs, and the
drowsy barns, and the old piano, and
the strange orchard; uud, as the summer came on, and the year changed its
namo from May lo June, i used to lie
under the apple-trees in tlic afternoons,
dreamily reading some old book, and
through half-Sleepy eyelids watching
the silken shimmer of the Sound.
I had lived in tlie old house for about
a month, when one afternoon a strange
ihing happened tu nn-. | remember the
date well. It was tbe afternoon of
Tuesday, June 13th. I was reading,
or rather dipping here and there, ln
Burton's "Anatomy of Melancholy." As
I read, 1 remember tliat a lillle unripe
apple, with a petal or two of blossom
sllll clinging to it, fell upon the old
yellow page. Then I suppose 1 must
huve fallen into a dream, though it
seemed to me that both my eyes and
my ears were wide open, for I suddenly
became aware of a beautiful young
voice singing very soflly somewhere
among the leaves. Thc singing was
very frail, almost Imperceptible, as
though it came out of the air. It came
and went fitfully, like the elusive fragrance of swectbrier—us though a girl
was walking lo and fro dreamily humming to herself in the still ufternoon.
Yot there was no one to be seen. The
orchard had never seemed more lonely.
And another fact that struck me as
strange was that the words thut floated
lo me out of tbe aerial music were
French, half sad, half gay snatches of
some long-dead singer of old France.
1 looked about for the origin of the
sweet sounds, but In vain. Could ll
be the birds that were singing In
French lu this strange orchard? Presently the voice seemed to come quite
dose to me, so near that It might hare
been the voice of a dryad singing to
me out of the tree against which 1 was
leaning. And this time I distinctly
caught the words of the sad little song:
"C'hanlc. rossignol, cliante,
Tol qui as le coour gal;
Tu us le coeur a rire.
Moi, Jo l'ai-t-a pleurer."
Hut, though tho voice was ut my
shoulder, I eould see no one, and then
the singing stopped with what sounded
like a sob; and a moment or two later
I seemed to hear a sound of sobbing
far down the orchard. Then there followed silence, and I was left lo ponder
on the strange occurrence. Naturally,
1 decided that it was just a day-dream
between sleeping and waking over the
pages of un old book; yet when next
day and the day after the invisible
singer was in the orchard again, 1
could not be satisfied with such mere
matter-of-fact explanation.
"A la claire fontaine,"
went the voice to and fro through the
thick orchard boughs.
"M'en aitant nrotnener,
J'ul trouve reuu sl helle
Que Je m'y suis bulgne,
Lul y a longtemps quo Jo t'alme,
Jamais je nc t'oubllal."
It was certainly uncanny to hear
that voice going to and fro the orchard,
there somewhere amid fhe bright sun-
dazzled boughs—yet not a human creature to bo seen—not another houso
even within half a mile. The most
materialistic mind could hardly but
conclude that here was something "not
dreamed of In our philosophy." It
seemed to me that the only reasonable
explanation was the entirely Irrational
one—tlmt my orchard was haunted;
haunted by some beautiful young spirit,
witli mime sorrow of lost Joy that
would not let her sleep quietly in her
And next day I hnd a curious confirmation of my theory. Once more I
waa lying under my favorite apple-
tree, half rending und half watching
the Sound, lulled Info a dream by tbe
whir of Insects und the spices culled
Up from the earth by the hot sun. As
1 bent over the page, 1 suddenly had
the startling Impression lhat some one
was leaning over my shoulder and
rending with me, nnd that a girl's long
hair wns falling over me down on the
page. The book was the Itonsard 1
bad found In thc little bedroom. 1
turned, Imi again there was nothing
ihere. Yet this lime I knew lhat I had
not been dreaming, und I cried oul:
"Poor child! tell me of your grief—
Ihnl  l may help your sorrowing heart
Uut, of course, tliere was no answer;
yei that night 1 dreamed a strange
dream. 1 thought 1 was in tho orchard
uguin in the afternoon und once again
heard the strange singing—but tills
time, as 1 looked up, the singer wus no
longer Invisible. Coming toward mo
waa a young girl with wonderful blue
eyes filled wllh tears and gold hair
that fell to her waist. She wore a
straight, while robe lhat might huve
been a shroud or a bridal dress. Sho
appeared not,, to see mc, though she
came directly to the tree where I wus
sitting, And there she knelt and burled lier face in the grass und sobbed
as If her heart would break. Her long
hair foil over her like a mantle, and in
my dream I stroked it pityingly und
murmured words of comfort for a sor
row I did nol understand. . . Then
1 woke suddenly as ono does from
dreams. The moon was shining brightly into the room. Hising from my
bed, I looked out Into thc orchard, It
was almost as blight ns day, 1 could
plainly sen the tree of which I had
been dreaming7, nud then a fantastic
notion possessed me. Slipping on my
clothes, 1 went out Into one of tlie old
burns and found a spade. Then 1
went*to the tree whore I imd seen the
girl weeping in my dream und dug
down ut Its fool.
1 had dug little more thnn a foot
whon my spado struct; upon sonic hard
substanco, and In a few more moments
l hud uncovered and exhumed a small
box, which, on examination, proved to
lie ono of those pretty old-fashioned
Chippendale work-boxes used by our
grandmothers (o keep their thimbles
nntl needles iu, Iheir reels of cotton
uud skeins of silk. After smoothing
down tbe little grave iu which 1 had
found it, I carried lhe box into tho
houso, und under the lamplight examined Its contents.
Then ul onco 1 understood why thut
sad young spirit went to and fro lhe
orchard singing Iboso llttlo French
songs-for tlie treasure-trove I had
found under the apple-tree, the buried
treasure of an unquiet, suffering soul,
proved fo be a. number of love-letters
written mostly in French in a very
picturesque hand—letters, too, written
Imt some live or six years beforo. Perhaps I should not havo read them—
yet 1 read them with such reverence
for the beautiful, impassioned love that
animated them, and literally made
them "smell sweet and blossom in tbc
dust," that I felt I had the sanction of
tlie dead to muke myseif the confidant
of their story. Among the letters were
litlle songs, two of which I hnd hoard
the sirange young voice singing in the
orchard, and, of course, there were
many withered (lowers and such lllc*
remembrances of bygone rapture.
Not that night could 1 muke out ull
the story, though it wus no. difficult
to define its essentiul tragedy, and la
ter on a gossip In the neighborhood
and a headstone in the churchyard
told me the rest.
The unquiet young soul that bad
sung so wistfully In and fro the orchard was my landlord's daughter. She
was the only child of her parents, n
beautiful, wilful girl, oxotlcally unlike
those from whom she was sprung and
nmong whom she lived with u disdainful air of exile. Sho wus, as a child,
a little creature of fairy fancies, und
as she grew up (t was plain to her
father und mother that sbe hnd come
from another world thun theirs. To
them sbe seemed liko a child in au old
fairy-i ale strangely found on his
hearth by some shepherd ns he returns
from tiie fields at evening—a little
fairy girl swaddled ln line linen and
dowered with a mysterious bag of gold.
Soon she developed delicate spiritual
needs to which her simple parents
were strangers. From long truancies
in the woods she would come home
laden with mysterious flowers, and
soon she came to ask for books and
pictures and music, of which the poor
souls that bad given her birth had
never heard. Finally she hud her wuy.
and went to study at a certain fashionable college; and tliere the brief romance of her life began. There she
met a romantic young Frenchman who
had read Itonsard to ber and written
her those picturesque letters I hail
found in the old mahogany work-box.
And utter a while the young Frenchman bail gone buck to France, und the
letters had ceuscd. Month by month
went by, uud at length one day, as she
sat wistful at thc window, looking oul
ut lhe foolish sunlit roud, a message
came. He was dead. Thai headstone
in the village churchyard tells the rest.
Sho was very young to die—scarcely
nineteen years; nnd the dead who have
died young, with all their hopes and
dreams still like unfolded buds within
their hearts, do not rest so quietly In
the   grave   as   those   who   have   gone
lo-day devoted mot

Dr. Finney believes in lots of healthful exercise, and this he thinks cannot
be obtained if men und women owning
motor curs or Inning tlie wherewithal
to hail a passing laxicab insist upon
riding to every objeclivo point they
staff out -for, when .walking would do
them Immeasurable good.
"The motor car," said Dr, Finney, "is
a thing uf luxury, but it makes work
for tlie doctor and. tbe surgeon. There
Is a growing tendency on the part of
wealthy men and women practically
to live in their curs. Tliey argue tliat
this keeps them nut in the fresh air
and their general health improves accordingly. If tlie same space of lime
were spent in the open air afoot they
would Und how much boiler they felt,
nnd this without tbc attending discomfort of increasing weight.
"Those who can afford to own motor
ears can well afford n saddle horse. A
brisk canter in tlie morning or nfter-
noon is worth more ns a health builder
than days spent in uu automobile, Bottor still is a morning or afternoon
spent <n the golf links. This being
impossible, start out und wulk a I a
good brisk pace until the first signs
of fatigue appear, nud then lake a
call or motor ear home and seek the
needed resf nnd relaxation."
Dr, Finney believes In moderation in
ull things. Ills own life mnptv attests that lie practises which he
preaches. Temperate and abstemious
In ull tilings, he Is thus enabled to
keep bis bruin, muscles and nerves in
the besl possible condition that he can
tho better undertake tbe muny deli-
cute operations whlcb come to him
each dny. In this respect ho much
resembles Dr. Howard Kelly, the noted
woman's specialist and surgeon, who
preceded him at the hospital. Both
are athletes und believe tbat every
man nnd woman should get all the
out of door exercise possible.
'I do not believe In a woman over
doing the thing," Dr. Finney contin
ued. "For instance, tlie girl who poses
as the 'athletic girl* and goes in for
ill those violent sports which really
tax the vitality of men will sooner or
later pay for her folly. Woman was
not Intended for lhat sort of thing.
Her organism is too delicately constructed to permit of such violence.
Hut neither was it intended that sue
go to the other extreme, which the
automobile fever makes possible.
"There are just as many serious operations performed nowadays on women who take absolutely no exercise
und spend their entire time flitting
about town und country in luxuriously
appointed automobiles as upon women
who go to the other extreme und tear
their very vitals asunder in performing
feats of strength and endurance that
would tax tho prowess of our most
skilled  athletes."
Dr. Finney contends that a lethargic body will sooner or later make a
lethargic brain, and vice versa. He
believes that brain and muscle should
work in unison, and tliat each should
perform Its full share. Both should
lie exercised to that point where weariness does net become too marked, and,
this done, the rest of the organs will
perform their functions and good
health must result.
A Romance of Ryan's Flat
By Nan M. Clarlt
Did Jimmy Ryan lay dead, und
Ryan's Flat wus agog witli excitement,
Tho ownership of the double row of
shanties, Isolated by the river in froni
and tiie maze of tracks and round-
bouses, would pass to Poor Johnny,
und tlie question served up with every
pot of potatoes wus:
"What will  Poor Johnny do  now?"
Poor johnny, beaten into half-wit-
tedness in his youth, und held all his
forty years in childlike submission to
the whip willi which old Jimmy would
cut and switch at his son's great,
stooped  shoulders!
Hut reluctant rent-payers were disappointed, for Johnny plodded on in
the path his father hud marked for his
feet. He losl his good-natured grin, to
tako on a scured sort of resemblance
to old Jimmy when facing u would-be
But nt last the Flat's pent-up interest in poor Johnny's doings was rewarded, lt was Mrs. Flanagan who
found it out. She had gone to complain about Mrs. Murphy's goat getting into her garden.

No one ever supposed that barbers
wero capable of couspiracy, but it
seems that they are. Conspiracy implies secrecy, but if there is anything
that a barber fails to communicate to
a customer during the half-hour of his
ministrations there must be more
liis head lhan one would suppose fr_.ii
a contemplation of his classic but Inexpressive features.
But all the same he can plot anil
plan with the best of them. There
has been a barbers' convention in Lon
don and the new styles have been de
elded upon. A base informer hns just
given the whole show away. Curls are
t(/ be thc order of the day, nnd for no
lietter reason than that curls require
skilled assistance, while thc smooth
and niailonna-like fashion does not. An
imitation switch can bo bought for $5,
but imitation curls cost $2i5, so thero
you are.
Another piece of Machiavellian cunning is the decision that there must be
uo fashion inappropriate to old ladies.
It. is comparatively easy for the young
to attend to their own hair unassisted,
and so tho old lady is the best customer for the hairdresser. The mode
must cater to her tastes. Now who

unquiet spirit—and the beautiful Words
are now safe, taken up again Into thc
aerial spaces from which they came.
Hut since then thu birds sing no
more llttlo French songs tn my old
month and never suspect that ho was
harboring a thought or an idea.
With their penchant for automobiles
and sylphlike figures - ami this applies
equally to men and women-—society
finds Itself In a quandary. The lure of
(he automobile Is Irresistible, nnd In
consequence llesh, great rolls of It,
continues to pile up, and modistes and
tailors are put to desperate straits
when they seek to bring out and ac-
centuute graceful lines In the garments
Ihey design for madume und her husband.
Dume Fashion decrees that tbe men
and women nf tbe present era shall
be willowy and graceful, Devotees of
tbe automobile find to tbelr utter dismay that Instead of being willowy they
are fast becoming billowy, and staring
them in the face Is (he choice of starvation or muscle racking exercise, the
hitler meaning, of course, less lounging in motor cars.
No less an authority than Dr. J. T. M
Finney, the eminent chief surgeon of
(he Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore, who but lately declined the presidency   of   Princeton   University,   do-
Count Zlnsendorf, the founder of the
Moravians, visited North America In

a missionary among the Khawanoo Indians, When he tlrst came to them
they received him with coldness und
a plot was formed to assassinate him.
Tho Count was sitting ono evening
In bis wigwam upon a bundle of dry
weeds which had been gnlherod for his
bed. While ho wus writing by the
light of a small fire a rattlesnnke,
warmed Into activity, crawled over one
of his legs.
Just then the murderous savages
lifted the blanket that served for a
door nnd looked ln.
They stood motionless for some minutes watching the aged man. and then.
gilding from the scene, fled Into the
forest. From that night lhe mlsslnn-
nry found thom friends nnd listeners.

In the midst of her shrill complainings, Mrs. Flanagan's eyes had fallen
on the picture propped up in front of
(he clock. It was of a woman In a
dress lhat could be nothing less than
silk, and wearing an Immense hat wilh
floating feathers.
Mrs. Murphy's goat, stuffed as he
was with her green peas, was forgotten, Mrs. FInnagan pointed an accusing finger at lhe picture.
"Who's that, Johnny Ryan?" she demanded.
Johnny's thin cheeks flushed darkly,
and he laughed his silly, weak, little
'Tm going to get married!" he said.
For  once  in   her  voluble  life  Mrs.
Flanagan was speechless.
"Ain't she a fine-looking woman?"
Johnny   asked   proudly.
Mrs. Flanagan found her tongue, to
pour out a flood of questions. She
learned that Johnny had answered an
advertisement, pictures had lieen exchanged, nnd the lady had promised to
be his wife. A minor detail, and one
whlcb Johnny quite forgot to mention,
was the statement he had mado of
his ownership of the Fiat, and of the
dollars In the bank.
But Johnny's day-dreams were
doomed to be short-lived, ll was Mr.
Murphy who startled him out of the
passive enjoyment of his hopes.
"It's a fine, upstanding woman she
is, Johnny," was his comment on the
photograph. "But I'm thinking you'll
have to fix up the old house a bit for
her. It ain't likely she'll want to bring
that illgant dress Into this place."
Johnny looked around the familiar
kitchen with dismay. He had not
thought of making any changes. The
walls and ceiling were black with the
smoke of many frylngs. The stove,
with its broken legs replaced with
bricks, was red with rust. The few
bits of odd dishes and old pans were
piled in confusion on the shelves. The
oilcloth on the table was worn full of
holes, and only the edge that hung
over showed that It had once been pat
terned In red squares.
He was to be married In ten days,
and how wns ho to go about making
his house over Into something fit for
the lady of the picture? His mind flew
from one to thc other of the women
of tho Flat. Suddenly he hnd an Inspiration, There wus tho little Widow
SchultZ. A vision of her clean little
shanty, with Us whitewashed fence
and the few beds of bright flowers In
front, came to him.
The widow was not very popular
with her Irish neighbors. She wns ton
busy trying to do enough wnshlng to
feed her brood of fat, yellow-haired,
blue-eyed children to have much time
for gossiping. Moreover, her tongue
slipped easily Into the German, so that
conversation with her wns a scries of
laborious repetitions and translations.
When Johnny Ryan went to the
little shanty at the end of the row he
found Ihe round little widow busy ut
the Ironing-board bul she was all sympathy when she learned his errand.
"Ja! Ja!" she Interjected frequently, her head bobbing, and her iron flying over the board. "Mans is no goot
for making of a house clean. Wben I
get done once, I come over."
The sight of nil thut dirt and disorder might well hnve daunted her.
lint Mrs. Bchultl had never shirked a
task in nil her life. She was adept at
the marshaling of soap-suds and hot
wnter, uud hnd Infinite faith In the
power of a whitewash-brush.
Her strong arms seemed tireless. Afler bunging her lines full of snowy
linen, she would hasten to thc Ityun
house und sweep und scrub the rest
of tbe day.
When she found the whip still hang
Ing behind thc door, her bright, blue

Poor Johnny laughed weakly.
"Pu   used   to   keep  that   there,"   he
The widow's eyes dimmed.
"Aeh,   pom* man!"  she aald  kindly.
"He will be sorry for that now."
From that moment Mrs. Schullz began to cull him Johnny, and her manner took on a motherly kindness lhat
was strange and sweet to the man's
heart. She set him many tasks, and
piralsed his awkward efforts. She tied
one of her own big blue aprons on him
and aet him to whitewashing the
kitchen walls. That done, she seni

stove-brush, and Johnny scrubbed the
stove until it aud his hands and face
were all equally black and shiny.

tnhnny selected some wall-paper, It
was beautiful beyond words, On H
light green background grew a mtm
| nlfiecnt crop of red roses, while a gen
erous sprinkling of gold-dust gave an
opulent look to tbe whole. Also Mrs.
Schultz insisted on lace curtains. Her
own were only bleached ami starched
muslin, but she knew what wus due a
Then Johnny, who bad never in his
life bought anything not an absolute,
necessity, became drunken with the
Joy of buying. Flinging the widow's
cautions aside, he bought dishes and
bright new puns, and, most wonderful
ul' all, a parlor set ull red plush und
golden oak carvings. The widow
gasped and sighed.
"Meln Gott—how beautiful!" was all
she could  say.
Put when the paper was hung und
thc furniture arrived, it became apparent thoy had mnde a grave omission. Tho bare floor, though well
scrubbed, looked sadly out of keeping
wllh lbc new chairs.
Then the widow rose grandly to the
occasion. Then- was her new rag
carpel, Intended for lur own bare little
parlor, tliat should go down. Johnny
was too overpowered lo do more lhan
remonstrate feebly, and the widow
silenced him at once.
"Nein, Johnny, it is nothing," she
Inslsted. "While the kinder so many
tilings wear out, it takes not long to
make another."
When every room wus immaculate
enough to satisfy even Mrs. SehuJt2's
German soul, she spent the last hours
in baking and stocking the clean pantry shelves.
Great crisp loaves, beautiful roll-
shining with sugar and cinnamon,
snowy bulls of cheese, were lined up
ready for the coming of the queea
Who was to reign over all this magnificence. If the widow's heart held
uny envy when she thought of her own
bure shunty, her bright, smile gave no
hint of It.
When the nuieh-fiust-red Johnny
was getting ready to meet, his brut..
Mrs. Schultz it was who adjusted th-
made-up while satin tie around hia
collar, stiff as a board, which she had
done up herself, it was her Sag -
that lucked the bright blue silk handkerchief into Johnny's bre.ist pocket,
so thut liberal corners stuck out;
while iitth- Heinrich on hts knees. Ida
pink tongue showing from the vtolenaa

When Johnny was safety star'e.i,

shook. Tenderly her mother stroked
the plush teat the child tn.gnt; aa-"*
(lattened down the nap; and then,
gathering her brood about her. aaa
went home.
Though her own neglected work
beckoned to her, little Mrs. S_:i_.u
wenl about it but half-heartedly, alia
was waiting for the sound of cairla^''-
wheels, for Johnny had announce, .ua
intention of getting a hack to br.ng
his lady home.
At lust they came. Mrs. Sennits,
dying to lhe window, saw tne eastfags-
door open and a lady get out. Lt waa
undoubtedly the lady of the pic: .ri.
but older by a good many year,—aad
those years had added to her uztt. Fil-
lowing behind her, Johnny looked
small and stooped. Aa Blrs. Scauit_
looked at the hard face and the nea*/.
square jaw under the big hat. her kind
heart was troubled.
She remembered the whip that had
lain across the stooped ahouiiiers ao
long. Was Johnny giving thai whip
Into new relentless hands? The iutle
woman lifted her apron hem to wipe
something bright and shiny from her
round, red cheek, and then sh»_.jk her
head  briskly.
"Aeh," she murmured, "what a foolishness I am!"
Uut her curiosity drew her again to
the window. The carriage slit. Kood
before the door; ll would be wai . ig
to tuke them to the priest's h--_.-ie,
Mrs. Schultz thought.
_ven while she looked, the bride
came out. Something militant in her
bearing spoke of trouble. Johnny followed meekly after, his constant smile
all gone. The woman seemed to r!.r,^
a word or two at him over her shoulder; the driver laughed. Johnny was
silent; then the carriage swallowed the
big hat and its wearer, and mis gone.
Mrs. Schullz was trembling wiih
rage at the woman and with sympathy
for Johnny, thus discountenanced In
the eyes of tbe Flat.
Johnny stood staring after the carriage until It had bumped its way
across the tracks; then he turned, and
came straight to the widow's hoilM.
Mrs. Schullz flew to the door. Poor
fellow, he would need sympathy now,
and he had come to the right place
for It!
Hut what a changed man was this
lhat stood on the little stoop! Johnny's
smile was broader than ever as he
came In.
"She wouldn't have me, after all."
he beamed. "And it's glad I am. for-
I've been thinking this week back that
you're the wife for me, Mrs. Schultz."
Mrs. Schultz slood smoothing her
apron, her eyes cast down.
"Thc praste'll be waiting. If ye could
hurry a little," said Johnny tenderly.
The widow started.
"I'll put on my bonnet right away,"
she said. Then the eternal feminine
cropped om. -it is but a small hat,
not so trrosser mlt feather." she sighed
Ah. Johnny, was it love that quickened your slow wits now?
"The divll take (he big hats!" said'
Johnny.    "1 like Hie small ones best!"

A few evenings ago a blast was
about to be ignited at Shannon
Mountain. It was quite apparent
that not even ordinary preeaution?
were taken. On the mountain just
above the point about to be blasted
were a number of climbers. On
tbe road were, several pedestrian; as
well as several wbo had a more
easy mode of locomotives. There
were no flagmen and a word of
warning was not raised until tho
fuse was lired, and then life was in
jeopardy. 1 would insist that two
flagmen bo placed al tho required
distance from tho point of blasting,
and lhal warning, to those who
nmy he on the mountain be given
before the actual lighting of tho fuse.
1 mn not wishing to throw too much
blame on the workmen, it might bo

if such conditions wore allowed lo
exist, the valley is liable to he

CHAPTER VIII. (Continued.)
WE brought up un old blanket and
spread, it uut beneath the canopy and that, whii a chair or
two, made our rout garden. A local
branch of the Public Library was not
Ear distant so that wr had all the
reading matter wo wanted and hero

we dldn'l rpel like doing anything elso,

of iho summor. It was run; Cor him.
The harbor breeze swept tho air clean
of smoko SO  Mail   il   was as  good   for
him as being at the sea-shore.
To us the sights from this roof wore
marvellous, They appealed strongly
because ihey were unlike anything we
had evor scon or for that matter unlike anything our friends had ever
seen. J Ihlnk that :i man's friends
often take away the freshness from
sights that otherwise might move him.
I've never been to Europe, but what
wllh magazine pictures und snapshots
and Mrs, Grover, who never forgot that
before she married Grover she hud travelled for a whole year, I haven't any
Special desire to visit London or Paris.
I suppose it would be different if 1
ever went, but even then I don't think
there would be the novelty to If we
found from onr roof. And it was
just that novelty und the ability to
appreciate it that made our whole emigrant life possible. It was for us the
Great Adventure again, I suppose
there are men who will growl that It's
all bosh to say there is any real romance in living in four rooms in a
tenement district, eating what we ate,
digging In a ditch and mooning over a
view from the root top. 1 want to
say right here thut for sueh men
there wouldn't be any romance or
beauty in such a life. They'd be miserable. There are plenty of men living down tliere now und they never
miss a ehance to air their opinions.
Some uf them have big bodies but 1
wouldn't give them lifty cents a day
tn work for me. Luckily, however,
there are not many of them in proportion to tho others, even though they
make more noise.
But when you stop to think about it
what else is it but romance that leads
men to spend their lives fishing olf the
Banks when they could remain safely
ashore and get belter pay driving a
team? Or What drives them Into tho
army or to work un railroads when
they neither expect nor hope to be
advanced? The men themselves can't
tell you. They take up the work unthinkingly, but there is something in
the very hardships they suffer which
lends u sting to the life and holds
thom. The only thing I know of lhal
will do this and turn the grind Into
an inspiration is romance. It's whal
the new-comers have and It's whal
our ancestors had and It's what a lol
of us whu huve stayed over here too
long uul of the current have lost.
On lhe lazy summer mornings wc
could hear the church hells and now
and then a sot of chimes. Because
we were above the street and nexl lo
the. sky Ihey sounded as drowsily musical as in a country village. They made
mo a bit conscience-stricken to think
lhat for the buy's sake 1 didn't make
an effort and go to somo church. But
fur a while It wus church enough to
devote the seventh day to what the
Blblo says ii was made for. Ruth
used to read out loud lo us and we
planned to make our hook BUlt tlio day
after a fashion. Sometimes It was
Emerson, sometimes Tennyson*-! was
very fond of the Idylls—and Bometlmes

a call from a young minister whu had (
a little mission chapel not far from ..ur
fiat and who looked In upon us at tho|
Buggcmlon of the secretary of the settlement house. We went to a service al his chapel one Sunday and bo-
fore we ourselves realized i( we wore
attending regularly with a sest and'
Interosl which we had never felt In
our suburban church-going, Later
still we each of us found a share In
the work ourselves and came to have a
great satisfaction and contentment In
It. But I am running ahead of my i
We'd hnvo dinner thla first summer
at about half past one and then per-J
hups we'd go for a walk. Thoro was-
n't a str.ot In the city that didn't in-!
tores! us, but as a rule we'll plan tn1
visit ono of iln* parks. I didn't know
there wore so many uf thom ur that
thoy wno su different, We hail our
Cholco of ibe ocean or a river or tin-
woods. If wo bad wished tu spend,
say, thirty conts in ear fan* WO could
have had a further choice of the
beach, ilie mountains, or a tasto of Iho
Country which In places had nol
changed in the last hundred yours.
This would have given us a Iwo hours'
rldo, Occasionally we did this, hut
nt present there was too muoh tu see
within   Walking distance.
For one thin!* It suddenly occurred
to me that though 1 had lived In this
city over thirty years I had tint yet
seen snob places of Interest as always
attracted visitors from out of town. My
attention was brought to this first by
the ni*.*d of limiting ourselves to
amusements thai didn't  cost anything,
hul chiefly by learning where tin* better element down hero spent Iheir
Sundays. Vou have only to follow
Ibis crowd to find oul where the ob*
J.-.-ts of nal tonal pride are locale.!.
An old battle Hag will attract twenty
foreigners to une American. And In*

Ruth und myself soon turned to it as
a vita) purl of our education, inspired by tlu; old trophies that ought
in stand for so much to us of today
we look from lbo library lhe first
volumo of  Flake's  fine series and In
lho course nf lime road them all.      As
wo traced the fortunos of those early
.ul von liners who dreamed and sailed
towards an unknown continent) pictured to ourselves the lives of Uio
tribes who wandered about in the big
tangle of forest growth between the
Alluntlc and the Pacific, as we landed
mi Uie bleak Now England shores with
the early Pilgrims, thon fought with
Washington, then studied the perilous
Internal struggle culminating with
Lincoln and the Civil War, then the
dangerous period of reconstruction
With the breathless progress following—why It left us all better Americans lhan wo had ever been in our
lives, it gave now meaning to my
present surroundings and helped me
belter to understand lhe new-cuiiun*.
Somehow all those things of the past
didn't seem to concern Grover nnd the
rest of them in the trim little houses.
They had no history and they were a
part uf no history. Perhaps that's
because they were making no history
themselves. As for myself, I know
that 1 was Just beginning to get ac-
qualnted wilh my ancestors—that for
the lirst lime in my life, 1 was really
conscious uf being a citizen uf the
United States of America.
Uut I soon discovered lhat not only
the historic but the beautiful attracted
these people. They introduced mo to
the Art Museum. in the winter following our tirst summer here, when
the out of door attractions were considerably narrowed down, Ruth and J
used to go there aboul every other
Sunday with lhe boy. We came lo
feel as familiar with our favorite pictures as though they hung in our own
house. The Museum ceased to he a
public building; it was onr own. We
went in with a nod in Uu- old door
keeper, who came tu know us, and felt
as unconstrained there as at home. We
had our favorite nooks, our favorite
seats and we lounged about in Uio
soft lights of the rooms for hours at
a time. The more we looked at the
beautiful paintings, the old tapestries,
the treasures of stone and chin.i, the
more we enjoyed them. We were sure
to meet some of our neighbor- Ibere
and a young artist who lived un tlio
second floor of our house and whom
later I came lo know very well, pointed out tu us new beauties It the eld
masters. Me was selling plaster casts
at lhat time and studying art in the
olghl  school.
I-i th" old life, an art museum had
meant nothing to me more than tnat
It seemed a necessary institution fn
every cily. lt was a murk of good
breeding in a town, like the library In
a good many homes. But It had never
occurred to me to visit It and i know
it hadn't to any of my former associates. The womt n occasionally
went to a special cxhibitiun that was
likely to bo discussed ut thc little dinners, but a week later they couldn't
have told you what they had soon.
Perhaps our neighborhood was the exception and a bit mure Ignorant than
tho average about such things, hut I'll
venture lo say there isn't a middle-
class community In this countr;. where
tin- paintings play the part tr. lhe lives
uf tbe peoplo lhat they du among tho
foreign-born. A class better than thoy
dues tbe work
It. Where the tntddl'
1 don't know.
After being gone all tbe afternoon
we'd bo glad lo get home again and
maybe w*e'd havo a lunch of .-old beans
and blseulls or some uf the pudding
lhat was left over. Then during the
summer muiiths we'd go bac; to the
roof fur a restful evening. At night
lhe view was us different from lhe
day as you eould Imagine. Behind us
iho city proper was In a hlui i'i hi/.*:
mnde hy lhe electric lights. Then wo
could see the yellow lights of lhe op-
per windows in all tho neighboring
houses and beyond these, uver tbe roof
tups which seemed now to huddle
Closor together, we saw the passing red
nnd green lights uf moving vessels.
Overhead were the same clean stars
which were at the same time shining
down upun the woods and the mountain
tops. There was something about ll
that made me feet n man and a free
man. There was twenty years uf slavery hack of me to make me appreciate this.
And Uuth reading my thoughts iu
my eyes used to ntBtlfl closer tu mc
and the hoy with his chin In his hands
would stare nut at sea and dream his
wn dreams.
Plans for tha Future
The former went Into everything.
They are trc nemluusly adaptable people, Uut whatever they tuckled they
looked forward to Independence and
itenerary wor it. Even a man of bo
humble nn ambition as Murphy had
nccomollshed this. The Italians either
went Into the fruit business for which
they seem to have a I nack or served
as day laborers and saved. There
was a man down here who was always
ready to stake them ij ,i cart and a
supply of fruit, at an txorbltant price
I > bo sure, bul tliey pushed tlieir carts
patiently mile upon mile until in the
ond they saved enough to buy one of
their own. The next step was a small
fi nit store. The laborers, once they
had acquired a working capital, took
up many things—a lot of them going
into the country and buying dcseitod
farms. It was wonderful whal they
did wllh this land upon which lhe old
stock New Englandor had not boon able
to live. But of course In p.trt explanation of this, you must remember
t-.nt these New England villages have
long been drained of their best. In
many cases only the maim, the halt,
and the blind are left and those stand
no more chance against the modern
ploneor lhan they would against one
of iheir own sturdy forefathers.
Another occupation which the Italians seemed to pre-empt was the boot-
blacking business. Il may seem odd
to dignify so menial an employment as
a business, but there is many u heud
of such an establishment who could
show a fatter bank account lhan two-
thlrds of his clients, The next time
you go into a little nook containing,
suy, fifteen chairs, figure out for yourself how many nickels are left Iherc
in a day. Tho rent Is often high—It is
some proof of a business worth thoughl
when you consider that they ure able
to pay for positions on lho leading
business streets—but the labor is cheap
and thc furnishitms and cost of raw
material slight. Pasquale hud set me
to thinking long before, when 1 learned thut he was earning almost as much
a week as I. It Is no unusual thing
for a man who owns his "emporium"
to draw ten dollars a day in profits and
not show himself until he empties the
cash register at night.
Uut fhe fact that impressed me in
these people—and this holds peculiarly true of thc Jews—was that they all
Bhled away from the salaried Jobs. In
making such generalizations i may he
running a risk because I'm only giving thc results of my own limited observation and experience. Uut I want
it understood that from the beginning
to the end of these recollections I'm
trying to do nothing more. I'm not a
student. I'm not a sociologist. Tho
conditions which 1 observed may not
bold elsewhere for all I know. From a
different point of view, Ihey might not
to another seem to hold even In my own
cily. I won't argue with unyono about
it. I set down what I myself saw and
let it go at thnt.
Going back to thc small group
among whom I lived when I was with
tbc United Woollen, il seems to me
that every man clung to a salary as
though It were his only possible hope.
I know mon among ihem who even refused to work on a commission basis
although Ihey were practically sure of
earning in this way double what they
iwere boing pad by the vear.      ihev
i   da-is   lower enjoys' ., , , , ,
., „    , ,   ; considered o salary as a form of  n-
ilddle-cluss comes In. ( ... .       -  ..
i surance and once in the grip of this
| idea thoy had nothing ta look forward
to except au increase.     1 wus no better myself.     1 didn't really expect to be
[ head of the linn.     Nor did the olher
t men.     Wo weren't working and hold-
j lag on with aay notion of winning Independence along (hat line.    The most
j we hoped for was a bigger salary. Some
I men     didn't    anticipate    more    than
twenty-live hundred like me, and others
I—the younger men—talked about five
1 thousand and even ten thousand. I
! didn't hoar them discuss whal tbey
were going lu do wlu-n they were general managers or vice-presidents, but
always what they cuiild enjoy when
tbey drew lhe larger annuity. And
save those who saw In professional
work a wuy oul, this was the career
they wor*.* chousing for tholr sons. They
wanted to gel Ihem Into hanks and the
hlg companies where the assurance of
lazy routine advancement up to a certain point was the reward for industry,
sobriety and honesty, A salary with
nil old, Strongly established company
seemed to them aboul us big it stroke
of luck for a young man as a legacy.
I myself had hoped to find a place for
hick with one of the hlg trusl companies.
i if courso down here Ihese people did
nut have the same opportunities. Must
of the old firms preferred lhe "bright
young American," ami I guess Ihey
secured mos' uf them. I pity the
"bright young American." but I can't
help congratulating the bright young
Irishmen. They are forced as a result to mnke btiflness for themselves
and thoy are given every opportunity In
the world for doing It. And they are
doing It. And I, breathing lu (his
atmosphere, made up my mind (hat I
would do it, too.
With this In mind 1 outlined for myself a systematic course of procedure,
lt was evident that In this ns In any
other business I must master thoroughly lhe details before taking up (he lar-
lelalls uf lliis as
i lay at the bottom nnd su fur these nt least I was
at presenl In (he hesl possible posl-
iion.    The two most Important factors
to Ibe success of ll Contractor seemed
to RiO to be, roughly speaking, tho seen tint* mid handling of men and tbe
purchase ami uso or materials, of the
two. Ihe former appeared to he the
more Important fflvon in the few
weeks 1 had boon nt work here | hid
Individually. 1 could have picked out
u half dozen that were worth more
than all tho others pul together. And
in the two foremen 1 had noticed un-
othcr big difference In llie varying ca-
paclly of a boss lo got work out of
the mon collectively. In work where
labor*counted for so muc|j in the final
Host as here, it appeared as»though IhTs
involved almost lhe whole question of
prolil and loss. With a hundred mefi
employed ul a dollar and ti half a day,
Uie saving of a single hour meant tlie
saving of a good  many  dollars.
It mny seem odd Lhat so obvious a
fact was not taken advantage of by lhe
present contractors. Doubtless lt was
realized, but my later experience
.showed me that the obvious is very
often neglected. ln this business as
in muny others, the details fall Into a
rut and often a newcomer with a fresh
point of view will detect waste that
has been going on unnoticed for years.
1 was almost forty yours old, fairly
intelligent, und 1 had everything at
stake. So I was distinctly more alert
than those who retained their positions merely hy letting things run
along as well as they always had been
going. Put however you may explain
it, I knew that the foreman didn't gel
as much work opt of me as he might
have done. In spite of all the control I exercised over myself I often
quit work realizing that half my
sirength during the day had gone for
nothing. And though it may sound
like boasting to say It, I think I worked both more conscientiously and Intelligently than most of the men.
lu tho first place the foreman was a
1.ally. lie believed in driving his
men, He swore ut them and goaded
them as au ignorant countryman often
tries lo drive oxen. The result was a
good deal the same ns it is with oxen
Uie men worked excitedly when under the Sting and loafed the rest of
lho lime. lu a crisis the boss was
able to spur them on to their host—
though even then ihey wasted strength
iu frantic endeavor-but he could nol
keep them up to u consistent level of
steady work. And that's what counts.
As In a Marathon race the men who
maintain a steady plugging pace from
start lo finish arc tbu ones who accomplish.
The question may Ik- asked how such
a boss could keep his Job. I myself
did nut understand ibat at first, but
later as I worked with different meu
und under different bosses I saw that
il was because their methods were
much alike and lhat the results were
much nlike. A certain standard had
been established as lo the amount of
work that should be done by a hundred men and this was maintained.
The boss had figured out loosely how
much the men would work and tho
men had figured out to a minute how
much they could loaf. Neither man
nor boss took any special interest In
the work itself. The men were allowed to waste jusi so much time iu
getting water, In filling their pipes, iu
spilling on their hands, In resting on
their shovels, in lazy chatter, and so
long as they did not exceed this nothing was said.
The trouble was that tho standard
was low and this was because the
men hnd nothing to gain by steady,
conscientious work and also because
the boss did not understand them nor
distinguish between them. For instance the foreman ought to have got
the work of two men out of me, but
he wouldn't have, if I hadn't chosen
to give It. Tbat held true also of
Rafferty and one or two others.
Now my idea wus this: that if a man
made a study of those men who, In this
city at any rate, were lhe key to the
contractor's problem, and learned tlieir
Utile peculiarities, their standards of
Justice, their ambitions, their weakness and their strength, he ought to he
able to increase their working capacity. Certainly un Intelligent teamster does this with horses aud It seemed ns though It ought to be possible
to accomplish still finer results wilh
men. To go a little farther in my ambition, it also scorned possible to pick
and soled the best of those men instead of taking thom at random. For
Instance In lhe present gang there
were at least a half dozen who stood
out as more Intelligent and stronger
physically than all tho others. Why
couldn't a man In time gather nboul
him say a hundred such men and by
better treatment, possibly heller pay,
possibly a guarantee of continuous
work, mako of them a loyal, hunl
working machine with n capacity for
double thc work uf the ordinary gang'.'
Such organization us this wus going
on in other lines of business, why not
in this? with such u machine ut his
commnnd, u man ought to make himself a formidable competitor wilh even
the lung established urms.

fuel—Is not always equable. While
some are gentle and every ready lo

others Which are surly tempered, show-
lag Ihelr tooth on the slightest provocation and  not   hesitating to  bite.
In all this there Is nothing extraordinary. But ll was boCOUSO persons
did not bear (his distinction In mind
that the bltQ of a dog which wub simply
surly tempered was considered In one
Instance us the bile of a rabid animal.
In this ease tho arm of a young woman
who had been billon was so severely
and thoroughly cauterized that a very
lurge wound was made.
A young lady who happened to be
111 u house whore tliere was a dog attempted to stop the animal whon it
was called from one room to another.
The dog thus teased finally hit her
on Ihe Inner surface of lhe right forearm. The result was a strong contusion, plainly showing al Its two extremities the murks of the animal's
teeth sharply Implanted In the tissues.

What wus to be done'.' No tlmo wus
losl in attempting 0 remedy. The Injured rogt»n wus liberally washed wllh
pure carbolic acid.
The doctor, who saw the patient two
hours later, hml no trouble In prodloi-
| Ing, on account of the aspect of thu
skin already affected, lhat the cauterization, oven if it had been justified,-
had been badly done and would inevitably result In a large wound.
People make a great error in thinking that every dog which bites is rabid,
and that consequently the resulting
wound must be cauterized. In this instance il was a question of a dog
which was simply hud tempered, and
all that, was .reu.qired was to wash the
und with boiled water ur'wiilf bOVux
water and to make the two small
wounds blood. .The most that should
have been done was to have cauterized with a redhot Iron Uio points
where the dog hnd inserted Its fangs.
Subsequently It is particularly important to Inuuire Into the state of
the dog's health. Putting matters at
their worst, the dog, when placed under observation, will die within ten
days if it is really rabid. And only
then should the injured person repair
to the Pasteur Institute to undergo an
inoculation   against   hydrophobia.
Put the person bitten must always
be reassured. Ho must be told thut
the dog in question wns simply Ill-
tempered and sulky, und thai tho
wound in no wny differs from un ordinary wound. Hut if he Is allowed lo

Playing jokes ua honoyiuooners is a

With increase of perspicacity, however,
it develops into an art. The twentieth
century swain, having wooed and won
his lady fair, discovers that "getting

•—is a more perplexing proposition than
the vernacular phrase generally implies.
At this juncture, for some roitsun or
other, every one of his kith, kin, and
acquaintance who happens to consider
himself gifted as a joker gets busy to

Not very long ago two people ia prosperous circumstances wore wedded, lt
was a rather fashionable wedding, with
an imposing array of groomsmen, a
beauteous bevy of bridesmaids, floral
decorations, newspaper reporters, and
the usual trimmings.
Toward the close of the reception,
one of the groomsmen sought mil th*;
•plainclothes detective who wus guarding Ihe presents. He was plainly in a
great state of perturbation. He took
the cop by the arm confidentially.
"Hist, ofilcer! An unbidden CUOSt.

The cop nodded a nud of completion*

wus his mail, well dressed, and even
then handling a valuable gold watch.
Details of what happened during tho
next quarter of nn hour were never

and thon two men went out by a side
door, both much disheveled, tine wore

It was late that night hefore the
sergeant in the station-house permitted
himsolf to be convinced—by a delegation which Included a tearful bride—
that the prisoner was indeed only a victimized bridegroom.
Another young man oscapod more
lightly, though he. tun, wus shackled.
The newly wedded couple were leaving
the Qrnnd Union Depot in Chicago fur
their honcynimm. They slood on Ihe
rear platform of their rnr, the heiuning
targets fm- all sorts of farewell and congratulatory elVusions. Then, just ns the
train started tn pull out, two of the
bridegroom's friends, determined on a
dual hand -shako, Jumped mi the platform ami pump-handled ihe huppy husband wilh much fervor.
When they jumped off thoy left the
happiest man on earth handcuffed tu tho

borrowed n (lie from the engineer and
freed him after au hour's work.
Another youug benedict, on whom n
similar  trick   was  tried,    turned    thu
tables on his tormentor. In this cuse
the eouplo were holding ua informal reception in the car when an attempt was
made to handcuff the bride aud bridegroom together. But the latter was a
sluulo too smart. As one of the bracelets was snapped on his own wrist, he
locked tho other to the would-be humorist.
'.'.' Sugar, ilrst of all extracted from the
sugar cane, was at the outset considered as u luxury, lis extraction from
the beetroot brought it into general

This is IhB verdict of all who hnve

Imine knows best its value. A burn
from the stove, from a Hat iron, or a
hot pan, Is instantly soothed by Zam-
Bulc. When tho little ones fall and
cut or scratch themselves, Zam-Buk
slops the [sain and, incidentally, their
crying, The best proof of this is the
fact that children who have once had

For more serious burns, too, it is
unequalled. Mr. .John Johnston, of

JT was early In the evening of a

tlmt Dickens stepped on shore in
the United ytales. Tlie ground was
covered by a thick enameling of hard
snow; but the stars shone brilliantly,
and the darkness was tempered by a
line moon. Among the young men In
Boston who were overjoyed at the
prospect of seeing Boz in the llesh, was
ihe late James T. Fields, subsequently
a prominent publisher In lhal cily, and
at the time ot Dickens' death, his representative in America, He has described how he lingered lo see l_o_;
how he followed him up the street, his
rapture rendering him Immune to the

is sllll a mystery to nu-."
The following day all Hoston knew
ilmt B02 had landed, and then began
those demonstrative exhibitions of genuine affection and curiosity which never ceased to accompany Dickens on
his travels for the following four
months. No sueh reception had been
ijtven to any foreign visitor to these
limes before lhat time. Even the triumphal progress of Lafayette, fifteen
years earlier, seemed tranquil In comparison. Had DieUens enjoyed tiie
strength of a Goliath he could not have
attended every dance to whieh he and
Ids charming wife were asked. To
have eaten all the dinners, suppers,
and banquets to which he was invited
would have been physically impossible,

would havo lefl no time for anything
else, and would have kepi him out of

give you tlie faintest notion of my reception here?" he asks, writing to For-
iter. "Of the crowds that pour In and
out the whole day; of thc people that
Ihu' the streets when I gu out; of the
cheering when I go to the theatre; of
the copies of verses, letters of congratulation, welcomes of all kinds, balls,
dinners,     assemblies     without     end?"
In   NOW   I-.ugland,   he   made  Ufe-lotlg

honor at a ''dinner, Al the same time
lhe citizens of New York arranged for
a great ball at lhe Park Theatre, aad
he was ashed thero so lhat he might
be gratefully entertained.
Dickens, although so delighted with
his stay In nnd around Boston, was
impatient to ret.ch New York, because
there he was to meet for the first time
the man above all others in America
he most craved to see—Wash ing ion
Irving. Il has not been sufllclently understood thai Irving was indirectly responsible for lhe fact that Dickens*
name has become so inseparable from
thoughts of Christmas literature,
Those chapters on Christmas, which
could lie less spared than any other
purl of Geoffrey Crayon's Sketoh
Book, were read by Dickons long before
he became a writer, lie has himself
left ii on record, in his loiters to tho
Amor I can author antl iu his Inimitable
Bpeech at ibe Boa Dinner, Uml he was
fascinated by living's beautiful prose.
Haw delightful lie wns, wben, after Lhe
nppenrunco of "Old Curiosity simp."
Ik* round among ibe hundreds of admiring letters iinui America one from
Irving! He answered H in his rapturous, i in patient manner, ami tho two
were instantly friends, From thai
iinn* forward there wns a strong bond
of sympathy botween tho two writers,
Dickons hnd nol been half au hour
In New Vork before Irving called on
lum at ibe Carlton House, where ibe
English novelist hnd rooms. "Just as
we Mil down to dinner," Dickens wrote
to Fuvstor, "David Coldon made his
appearance; ami when he bad gone,
ami we were Inking our wine, Washington Irving camo in alono wiih open
arms, And here in- stopped until ten
o'clock ui night."
To run over the names of those who
visited Dickons during bis New York
stay would lie to give a list of virtually
all the men connected with literature
in that cily al thc time. Bryant was
a frequent visitor; even N. P, Willis
win* had described Bos so unflatter-
Ingly in one of his papers from London, came in to see him wilh au air
of assurance and virtue. Fiu-Greene
Halleck, the poet, and Lewis Gaylord
Clark, then editing the Knickerbocker
Magazine, were often seen at the Carl-
loti. On one occasion when DieUens
had a few of hts choice spirits to dinner, as they passed Into his apartment
the clerk of the hotel, who seems to
have been a great lover of literature,
buttonholed lioz's secretary lung enough to exclaim with u kind of reverential awe; "Good Heaven! Mr. Putnam, to think what the four walls of
ihat room now contain! Washington
Irving, William C. Bryant, Fitz-Greene
Ilalleek, and Charles Dickons!"
Tho "Great Boz Dinner," was given
at the City Hotel on February IS, and
Irving, as tho acknowledged dean of
American letters and as the friend of
Dickens, was selected to preside,
Dickens, always the readiest of after
dinner speakers, made the most felicitous speech of his whole tour. What a
beautiful tribute he paid Irving! He
said, in his Inimitable manner, that he
did not go to bed two nights out of
seven without taking Washington Irving under his arm. and when he did nol
take him he took Irving'8 own brother,
(diver Goldsmith! And how loyal
Dickens remained lo bis American
friend is shown hy the fact that, In his
most intimate letters lo Forstor. there
Is not a mention of tho fact that Irving
broke down in his speech at the dinner.
The dinner committee, having some
apprehension lest lio-/. should speak
plainly about copyright, appealed to
him before lhe function not lo do so.
He declared he should, but his reference when the time came to speak it
was so slight, so gentle, and in the
form of an "appeal by one who luul
a most righteous claim" to assert his
right, that actually the sentence was
followed by cheers.
From Henry Clay, at Washington,
came a warm letter of encouragement;
he wrote to approve Dickons' "manly
course" and mentioned his desire to
"stir lu it'If possible." But Clay had
already forwarded his resignation from
the United States Senate to the Legislature of Kentucky, to .late from
March .11  of that year.
When he reached Philadelphia, whicli
he found "a handsome city, but dis-
tractlngly regular," he was completely
laken ia by an unscrupulous political
lender in that city. This man. who
had a pleasant address and was locally
prominent, was Introduced to the distinguished visitor, and before leaving.

Feverishness. For more than thirty years ii has been in constant use for the relief
of Constipation, Flatulency, Wind Colic, all Teething Troubles and Diarrhoea. It
