CHAPTER XV1I1.—(Continued)
Maturing Plans
It wua Rafferty who helped me turn
this over In a real estate deal in
which hi' waa Interested, I made nix
hundred dollars by that. Everything
Rafferty touched now seemed to turn
lo money. One reason was that le
was thrown in contact with money
makers all of whom were anxious to
help him, He received any number of
UpS from those eager to win his favor,
Among the tips wen* many that were
legitimate enough, like the one ho
shared with me, but there were also
many that were not quite so above-
board. Hut to Dan all was fair in
business and politics. Yet I don't
IcnoW a man I'd sooner trust upon Ills
honor in a purely personal mutter.
Ho wouldn't graft from his friends,
however much he might from tlie city.
In fuel, bis whole code us fur as I
could see was bused upon this un
swerving loyalty to his friends and
scrupulous honesty in dealing with
them. It was only when honesty became abstract that he couldn't see it
You could put a thousand dollars in
gold in his keeping without security
and come back twenty years later and
tlnd It safe. Mut he'd scheme a week
to frame up a deal to cheat tbe city
out of a hundred dollars. And he'd
do it with his head In the air and a
grin on his face. I've seen the same
thing done by educated men who knew
better. I wouldn't trust the latter
with a ten cent piece without first
consulting a lawyer.
The money 1 had saved didn't represent all my capital. 1 had as my
chief asset the gang of men 1 had
drilled. Everything else being equal
they stood ready to work for irfe in
preference to any other mah in the
city. In fact their value as a machine depended on me. If 1 had been
discharged and another man put in
my place the gang would have resolved itself again into merely one
hundred day laborers. Nor was this
my only other asset. 1 had established myself as a reliable man in the
eyes of a large group of business men.
cut loose wfth my men and leave
out Dan and his influence. He stood
ready to back me not only financially
but personally. And he knew me well
enough to know this would not Involve
anything but a business obligation on
my part.
With these things in mind, then, 1
felt ready to take a radical departure
from the routine of my life when the
opportunity came. Hut I made up my
mind I would wait for the opportunity.
I must have a chance which would not
Involve too much capital and In which
my chief asset would be the gang.
Furthermore, it must be a chance that
1 could use without resorting to pull.
Not only that but it must be something
on which 1 could prove myself to such
good advantage that other business
would be sure to follow. I couldn't
cut loose with any men and leave
them stranded at the end of a single
I watched every public proposal and
analyzed them all. 1 found thnt they
very quickly resolved themselves into
Dan's crowd. I kept my cars wide
open for private contracts, but by the
timo 1 heard of any I was too late.
So I waited for perhaps three months.
Then I saw In the daily paper whal
aeemed to me my opportunity. It
wns an open bid for some park construction which was under the guardianship of a commission. It was a
grading Job and so would require nothing but the simplest equipment. I
looked over thc ground and llgured out
the gang's part In it first. Then I
went lo Hufferty and told him what
1 wanted in the way of terms. I
wanted only the carts and horses—1
would put my own men to work witb
Ihem. I askod him tu lake my note
for the cost.
"I'll take your word, Carleton," he
said.      Thot's enough."
But 1 insisted on tho note. He tin-
ally agreed and offered to secure for
me anything I wanted for the work.
1 wont back to Uuth und we sat
down and figured the matter all over
once again. We stripped It down to
a figure so low that my chief profit
would came on the time 1 could save
with my machine. I allowed for the
scantiest profit on dirt and rock though
I had secured a good option on what
I needed of this. 1 wus lucky In finding a short haul though I had had my
eye on this for some time. of one
thing 1 was extremely careful -to nwkfl
my estimate large enough so that 1
OOUldn't possibly lose anything but my
profit. Even If | wasn't able to curry
oul tny hope of being able to speed
up lhe gang I should he utile lo pay
my hills und come out of the venture
Uuth and I worked for a week on
tt und when I uuw the grnnd total it
look uwuy my breath. I wasn't used
to dealing In big figures. They frightened me. I've loarnod ilnoo then thai
It's a good dOOl easier In some ways
lo deal In thousand! IIiiiii it is In ones.
Vou have wider margins, for one
thing. Mut I must confess that now
I was scared. I was ready to hack
oul. Wlu-n I turned to Uuth for the
final decision, she looked Into my eyes
a second Just as she did when I asked
her to marry me and snld:
"Go after It. Hilly.   You can dn it."
That night 1 sent In my estimate endorsed hy Dnn und a friend of his
and for a month 1 waited. I didn't
sleep as well ns usual, but Uuth didn't seem lo be bothered. Then one
night when I cume home I found Uuth
nt Ihe outside door waiting for me. I
knew the thing hnd lieen decided. She
came up to mo and put her hand on
my shoulder nnd putted me.
"It's yours, Hilly," sho said.
My heart stopped heating for a moment and then It went on ngnln heating a dozen ticks to lho second.
The next day I closed up my op-
lions. I went to Corkery, gave my
nollr-e and told him what I was going
to do. lie wus madder than a hornet. I listened to what he had to say
und wont off without a word in reply,
lie waa so unreasonable that it didn't
seem worth it. Tliat noon I rounded
up the men und told them frankly
that 1 was going to start In business for myself and needed a hundred men. 1 told them also that this
tlrBt job might last only four or five
weeks and lhat while I had nothing
definite in mind after that I was in
hopes to secure in lhe meanwhile
other contracts, I said this would
be largely up to them. I told them
that I didn't want a man to come who
wasn't willing to take the chance. Of
course it wns something of a chance
because Corkery hnd been giving them
steady employment. Still it wasn'l
a very big chance, because there was
alwnys work for such men.
1 watched anxiously to see how they
would take it. I felt that tho truth
of my theories were having their hardest test. When they let out a cheer
und slarted towards me in u mass 1
saw blurry.
I'll never forget the feeling I had
when I started out in the morning that
first dny as an independent contractor;
I'll never forget my feeling as I reached the work an hour ahead of my men
and waited for them to come straggling
up. I seemed closer than ever to my
ancestors. I felt as my grent-greut-
grandfathcr must have felt when he
cut loose from the Massachusetts col-
only and went off down into the unknown Connecticut. 1 was full enough
of confidence, but I knew that a month
might drive me back again. Deeper
than this trivial fear, bowever, there
was something bigger—something
finer. I was a free man in a larger
way than I had ever been before. It
made me feel an American to the very
core of my marrow.
The work was all slaked out, but
before the men began I called Ihem
all together. 1 didn't make a speech;
I just said:
".Men—I've estimated that this can
he done by nn ordinary bunch of men
in forty days; I've bunked that you
can do it in thirty. If you succeed,
it gives me profit enough to take another contract. Do the best you can."
There wasn't a mother's son among
them who didn't appreciate my position. There were a good many who
knew Uuth and knew her through what
she had done for their families, and
these understood it even better. The
dirt began to fly and it was a pretty
sight to watch. I never spoke again
to the men. I simply directed their
efforts. I spent about half the time
with a shovel in my hands myself.
There was scarcely a day when Ruth
dldnt come oul to watch the work
with an anxious eye, but after the
first week there was little need for
anxiety. I think she would have liked
to take a shovel herself. One Saturday Dick came out antl actually insisted upon being allowed to do this.
The men knew him nnd liked to see
such spirit.
Well, we clipped ten days from my
estimate, which left me with all ray
hills paid and with a handsome profit.
Hetter still, I had secured on the
strength of Carleton's gang another
The night I deposited my profit In
the bank, Ruth quite unconsciously
took her pad and pencil and sal down
liy my side aa usual to figure'up the
household expenses for the week. We
had been a bit extravagant that week
because she had been away from the
house a good deal. The total cams
to four dollars and sixty-seven cents.
When Ruth had finished I took the
pad and pencil away from her and
put it In my pocket.
"There's no use bothering your head
nny more over these details," I said.
She looked at me almost sadly.
"No,  Billy," sho said,  with a sigh,
"there Isn't, Is there?"
Once Again a New Englander
During ull those years we had never
seen or heard of any of our old neighbors. They had hardly ever entered
our thoughts except us very occasionally thc hoy run across one of his
former playmales. Shortly after ihls,
however, business took me out Into the
old neighborhood and 1 wus curious
enough to make a few Inquiries. There
was no change. My trim little house
stood just as It then stood and around
It were lhe other trim little houses.
There were u few new house* and a
few newcomers, hut all the old-timers
were still there, I inel Drover, who
wus Just recovering from B long sickness. IU* didn't recognize me ut first.
I   was   tanned   and   had   Illicit   out   u
good deul.
"Why, yes," he snld, after I had told
my name. "1-et me see, you went
Off I" Austrulin or somewhere, didu'l
you, Carleton f"
"I emigrated," I answered
He looked up eagerly.
"I romombor now. It seems to have
agreed with you."
"You're still with the leather firm?"
I inquired.
He almost Started at this unexpected question.
"Yes," he answered.
His eyes turned back lo his trim
lillle hoUBO, then to me as though he
feared I wus bringing him had news.
"Hut I've been luld up for six weeks,"
he fullered.
I knew whut wns troubling him. He
wus Wondering whether he would find
IiIh job when ho got hack. Poor
devil! If he didn't, whnt would become of his trim little houso? Grover
was older hy llvo years than I had
heen whon tho axe fell.
t talked with him a fow minutes.
There had heen a death or two in tho
neighborhood and the childron had
grown up. That was the only chnnge.
Tho sight of Grover made mo uncomfortable, ho I hurried about my busl-
m '■*-■. eager to got home again.
God pity the poor? Bah! The poor
are ull right if by poor you mean the
tenement dwellers. When you pray
again pray God to pity the middle-
eiasH American on a salary. Pray that
he may not lose his job; pray that if
he does it shall be when he is very
young; pray that he may find the
route to America. The tenement
dwellers are safe enough. Pray—and
pray hard—for thc dwellers in the
trim little houses of the suburbs.
I've hud my ups nnd downs, and
profits and losses since I entered business for myself, but I've come out at
the end of each yeur well ahead of the
game. I never made again as much
ln so short a time as 1 made on that
ilrst job. One reason is that as soon
as I was solidly on my feet I started
a profit sharing scheme, dividing with
the men whut was made on every job
ovor n certain per cent. Many of
the original gang have left and gone
into business for themselves of one
sort and another, but each one when
lu? went, picked a good man lo tuke
his place and handed down to him the
spirit of the. gang.
Dick went through college and is
now In my offlce, He's a hustler and
is going to muke a good business man.
Hut thank Cud he has u heart In him
as well as brains. Ho hopes to make
"Carleton und Son" a hlg firm some
ilay, and he will. If he does, every
man who faithfully and honestly
handles his shovel will be purl of the
big firm. His idea isn't to make
tilings easy for the men; it's to preserve the spirit they come over with
und give Ihem a share of the success
due to lhat spirit.
We didn't move away from our dear,
true friends until the other boy came.
Then I bought two or three deserted
furms outside tlie city—fifty acres in
ail. I bought Ihem on time and at a
bargain. I'm trying another experiment here. I want to sec If the pioneer spirit won't bring even theso worn-
out acres to life. I find that some of
my foreign neighbors have made their
old farms pay even though the good
Americans who left them nearly starved to death. I have some cows and
chickens and pigs und am using every
square foot of the soil for one purpose or another. We pretty nearly
got our living from the farm now,
We entertain a good deal, but we
dont entertain our new neighbors.
There Isnt n week, summer or winter,
that I dont have one or more families
of C'arietons gang out here for a half
holiday, it's the only way I can re
conclle myself to having moved from
among them. Ruth keeps v ry closely
in touch with them all and has any
number of schemes to help them. Her
pet one just now is for us to raise
enough cows so that we can sell fresh
milk nt cost to those families which
have kiddies.
Dan comes out to see us every now
and then. He's making ten dollars
to my one. He snys he's going to be
mayor of the city some day. I told
him I'd do my best to prevent it.
That didn't seem to worry him.
"If ye was an Irlshmon, now," he
said, "I'd be nfter slttln' up nights in
fear of ye.     But ye ain't."
I'm almost done. This has been a
hard job for me. And yet it's been
a pleasant job. It's always pleasant
to talk about Ruth. I found that
even by tnking awny her pad and
pencil I didn't accomplish much In the
way of making her less busy. Even
with three children to look after Instead of one she does just as much
planning about thc housework. And
we dont have sirloin steaks "even now.
We don't want them. Our daily fare
doesn't vary much from what it wus
In thc tenement.
Uuth Just came in with Billy. Jr., in
her arms and read over these last few
paragraphs. She says she's glad I'm
getting through with this because she
doesn't know what I might tell nbont
next. But there's nothing mote to
tell about except that today, as at Hie
beginning, Uuth Is the biggest thing
In my life. I enn't wish any better
luck for those trying tn fight their way
out than they may find for a partner
half as good a wife as Uuth. I wouldn't be afraid to start all over again
today with her by my side.
(The End)
To-day we may all stand nmong tho
Initiated of Egypt's priest-hood. Wo
really know more of the esoteric belief
of ancient Egypt than the average
Egyptian in ancient limes ever knew
concerning his own faith.
II wus only lo he expected that one
day should be found ut Abydos this
special plan of worship of lis ruling
deity, the "Great Judge of the Head."
Thut this sanctuary should he a part
of tbe temple dedicated to the worship
of the dead,  with special apartments
for the celebration of tho Oilrlan rites,
Is very natural nnd fitting. A line
drawn through the axis of Setl's temple, the Oslerlon and the desert pylon
of the temenos wall continues to thc
royal tombs. Here, close to the tomb
of Zi-r, re-used ok the lomh of Osiris,
were found four burled figures of
"siiis moulded from mud.
This Is the Osiris of vegetation and
generation referred to In the texts as
He who Is on his sund." "Nothing is
mnde living without him, the Lord of
LlfO." And In a hymn of the time of
Humeses IX. Osiris Is worshipped us
tho god from whom nil life comes:
"Thou nrt praised, thou who stretch-
st out Ihlne nrms, who slcepesl on
thy side, who Host on the sand, the
lord of the ground, tlic earth Hen on
thine arm und Its corners upon theo
from here lo tho four supports of
heaven. Shouldst thou move thon
trembles Ihe earth. Thou nrt the
lather and mother of mankind; thoy
live on thy breath, they subsist on lho
llesh of my body." So sang the Kgyp-
Han psalmist of tho twentieth dynasty.
The festival of Osiris ns Lord of the
Sund is most plcturcsquo as observed
at Abydos.   Within the beautiful tem
ple of Seti, to which tho Osireion leads,
Is the chamber of the resurrection of
Osiris, where part of the ceremony
must have been performed, as the presence of the cow goddess Shenty was
essential, and In this chamber she presides over the prostrate form of the
dead god ln a colored bas-relief. A
hollow stutuette of pure gold was
made in the likeness of the god Osiris
in his mummified form wearing the
high white crown of upper Egypt, type
of the heavenly, celestial Egypt, enclosed in u black copper reliquary.
On the 12th of Khoiack four bin of
sund and one bin of barley were put
into the statuette, which was then
laid in the "gnrden" with rushes over
it and under it. Tho garden was in
the "House of Shenty" and was made
of stone four-square and resting on
four pillars. Tlie statuette was decorated with a necklace and a "blue
Ilower luld beside it. On the 21st of
Khoiack tbe sand and barley were removed and dry Incense substituted.
Four days later the statuette was
brought out and laid on Its bier und
buried In a small shrine of a single
block of stone.
Although the ceremony wus observed In other nornes special deference
was paid to the Abydos festival us the
veritable abode of Osiris, und a simpler symbolism was followed elsewhere. At Husiris the festival did
not begin till the 20th of Khoiack,
when tlie barley ami the sand were
pul Into the "garden" In the "House
of Shenty." Then fresh Inundation
water wus poured out of a golden vase
over both the goddess and the garden
unit the barley wus allowed to grow
us the emblem of the resurrection of
lhe god after his burial In tin* earth,
"for the growth of the garden Is the
growth of tho divine substance."
It is u far ery from the first primitive pan grave wllh its solitary offering Jar to the overwhelmingly intrlenl*.
mystlclsm of the Ostrelon. Yet end
hi its cycle expresses the one belief
that underlies nil lOgyptlun research
1 ,ook buck into tlu*. darkness of tlm
past us we will, question as closely ns
we may tbe cumulntlve evidence of

the Egyptian steadily looking forward
to an eternal future.
X.  Hoiitstcr,   assistant   curator
the division of mammals, United States
National Museum, announces the discovery of four new animals from the
Canadian Rockies, in a paper published
by the Smithsonian Institution. Dur
ing last summer a small party of naturalists from the institution accompan-
ed the expedition of the Alpine Club
of Canada to the Mount Robson region,
where they made the first natural his
tory collection ever taken In that vicin
ity. The natural history work of thc
expedition was under the charge of
Mr. Hollister. He paid especial attention, however, to the mammals, four
of which he describes, a chipmunk, a
mantelled ground-squirrel and two
bats. All the specimens come from the
neighborhood of Mount Hobson, which
lies in one of the wild and unexplored
parts .if British Columbia, at about
14,600 feet elevation.
The chipmunk Is a new species nnd
all the specimens of it come from the
region nlong the boundnry line between
British Columbia, nnd Alberta, from
Yellowhead Pass northward. The
ground-squirrel is a beautifully marked and highly-colored form of the genus, und was found living In the alpine
meadows and rocks of the snow-covered region above tlmberline. The head
und shoulders nre u rich and glossy
Mnrs brown and the sides are marked
by conspicuous lateral stripes. While
th.; two new species of bats resemble
some well-known forms, externally
they are quite distinct nnd readily distinguishable by the shape of the skull.
One of them, curiously enough, most
resembles a species known only from

there tho gendarmes recommenced
their barbarities and inflicted such injuries on their victim that he died the
same night.
The medical evidence showed that
lhe bones of both forearms were broken, und lhat tho body was a mass of
burns and contusions.
The gendarmes were sentenced to
two and a half years' and one year's
imprisonment respectively.
Similar stories of the maltreatment
of prisoners come from Smolensk. A
boy of fourteen recently hanged him
self owing to his mind becoming un
hinged by the brutality to which he
was subjected. He had been accused
—apparently wrongfully—of some pet
ty theft. He was flogged and beaten by a police oillcer and a rural guard
and for four days was attached to
the shafts of a cart and forced to
keep pace with tbe. horse. A doctor
testified that he had found eleven
wen Is on the boy's body. The police oillcer wus sentenced to four
months' Imprisonment. The rural guard
was acquitted.

The affair of the legacy of $500,000
bequeathed to King Alfonso by M. Albert Sapenc, u wealthy landowner, recently came before the president of
the Civil Court at Saint-Guudens,
France, Mnllre de Marlball pleading
on behalf of his majesty, and Mnitre
Thevenln for the niece of the deceased,
who disputes the will.
It is a very curious case. M. Snp-
ene died at n lunatic asylum In Oe
tolier last year, nnd when his will
wus opened at the office of the Civil
Court, it was ascertained, with consld
arable surprise, that he hnd left the
whole of his fortune, as well as his
titles of nobility nnd his orders, to
the King of Spain. Thi* fortune existed—of thnt there could be no doubt
whatever—but M. Sapene had no right
to any title; nor, again, had he ever
been decorated. Hul, us the will wus
druwu up In due form, Its stipulations
with regard to the fortune were about
to bo carried out, when the niece of
the testator came forwnrd as his nnt-
nnil heiress to dispute the will, particular stress being also laid on the
fact that M. Sapeno had heen ln an
asylum since |!*08, nnd that the very
terms of the testament which wns
drawn up In 11)11, tended to Indicate
thnt he was nol In his right mind.
There had since been an Impression
that King Alfonso hnd, in these circumstances, decided on giving up nil
cluim to the legacy, but this wus found
"o tie an error.
Apparently there are extremes of
officialdom not to be tolerated In Russia itself, Two non-commissioned officers of gendnrmcry nnd a peasant
have have been tried at Ellsahetgrad
before the Odessa Circuit Court on the
charge of savagely maltreating a prisoner, with the result that he died
from his Injuries. Tbe piisonec — a
pensnnt—was lu'eused of having stolen
tho fur cont of a railway traveller. He
stoutly denied his guilt. In order to
extort a confession, the two gendarmes,
aided by a peasant whose services they
enlisted, pounded him with their flsts,
kicked him, struck him with a poker,
and burned his body with a red-hot
soldering iron.
Uhnhle to stand the torture, the prisoner nt length said thnt he hnd
stolen the coat nnd hnd hidden It tn a
certain  barn.      As  It   wns  not  found
up with it sharp knife in thi* bunds of
n skilled workman, Novortholoss the
greater part of the sauerkraut oalon
over hero Is the product of au, American labor saving method.
'i'he cabbngOH from which the suiier
kraut is made lu this neighborhood
come largely from (tic northern part of
Ihe State, although the greatest cabbage growing section of this country
Is out In central Ohio, from $2 to
$2.f>0 a ton is paid to the farmers wbo
specialize in cabbage raising und very
often the supply Is not large enough
to meet the demand, thus making it
necessary for sauerkraut makers sometimes almost to suspend operations until the cabbage crop looks up.
Sauerkraut does not look like a particularly highly volatile substance
when It appears on a platter alongside
of a pink pig's knuckle or us the foundation or groundwork upon which is
placed the plump, brown frankfurter
sausage. But It does frequently explode, sometimes with sullicient
violence to wreck its container. This
happens when fermentation sets in.
And if a carlo-id of suuerkrnut goes up
barrel after barrel the wreckage is
great and the loss complete, while the
walls, roof and floor of the car are
likely to be covered with the pickled
cabbage Inches thick.
The Orient is usually considered to
be a sort of mule purudlse, where females alternately serve as man's slave
and plaything. However true this
may be of certain parts of Asia, there
is at least one country where woman
hns the upper hand. There men take
back seat, not through a generous
impulse or feigned chivalry, but because of inferiority. There woman is
the undisputed ruler, the supporter of
her husband und heud of the family.
No other country ln the world furnishes u purnllel to this little province
t the far-away East Indian Empire.
Everywhere in this land of pagodus
woman is ubiquitous. In the store,
In the home, in the temple, In the
murket places, on the exchange, you
tlnd her, tn her tight-fitting jacket
with its loose sleeves, and scant petticoat—always scrupulously clean, for
a dlrly Burman woman Is almost unknown—always smilingly complucent—
always serenely capable, If you
Into a jewellery store where thousands
of dollars worth of precious stones are
displayed you will find that u womnn
owns and manages it. All the clerks
will nlso be women. If you stroll into a booth in the market where the
total stock tif fruit Is not worth tlve
dollars, a woman will bund you an
.•range or a. mango and accept the
change in payment. If yuu see, on
the river bank, a gathering of people clad In rleh-hued garments, you
may think It is u picnic purty, Imt
it will prove, on closer investigation,
to be a baud of Burmese women washing tlie family clothes In the river,
and making a gala occasion out of
what otherwise would be "blue Monday." In the railway station a woman sells you tickets and checks your
lugguge. In the hotel a woman is
your host. If you ure looking fur uu
nmaniiensis, a Burmese girl can readily he secured who will take your dictation und deftly hammer the keys of
the latest model typewriter us she
transcribes her shorthand notes. Not
long ago a womnn stock broker in
Rangoon died, leaving behind her hundreds of thousands of dollars, ull
omatsed by hor own ingenious operations on the exchange. Woman is the
pillar of the Huddhlst Church, which
ts the lending church of the country,

fervent in lier prayers.
It Is Impossible lo tell whether the
smiling woman who serves you Is married or single, There Is nothing ubout
her name lo indlcutc whether she is
"Miss" or "Mrs." The Burmese woman Is too Independent to permit sueh
humiliating tagging. Maid or wife,
she is called "Mah," and unless she
had a herd of children kicking about
under foot, or nurses her baby as she
watts on you In booth or shop, you
never can tell whether or not she owns
such a luxury us a husband.
The man of Burma Is like the Illy
if the Held. He toils not, neither does
he spin. He dresses foppishly In fine
White linen, his costly garments richly embroidered In colored silks, his
head crowned by a gny-hued turban.
And nil the time he slouches about
nnd smokes, while bis wlfo Is grinding out the family living in the business world. Moreover, the Burmese
mnn hns a long head for arithmetic.
He figures that If ono wife can keep
him lu comfort, more than one will
maintain blm In luxury, so ho marries
three or four or tlve wives, and they
see   to   lt   that   he   Is   provided   with
everything necessary for tho happiness und well-being of a gentleman.
Each wife maintains an establishment
of ber own, and earns the wherewithal to keep the domestic machinery
running smoothly and furnish pocket-
money for her coxcomb husband.
So attractive Is the woman of Burma that, as u usual thing, the traveller
who goes there unmarried is so charmed by the Burmese beauties that he
claims a wife from amongst them, and
remains in the land. The girls are
easily wooed nnd won by tho foreigners, for they ure luxury-loving by nature, and tho ease and comfort of life
promised them by alliance with Europeans or Asiatics, when compared to
their tedious drudgery as Burmese
wives, appeals to them. It is no wonder that men from all over the world
fall in love with the beautiful Burmese maid, for she Is fair to look upon
—fascinatingly good-looking ns well us
intelligent. As u rule, the womnn of
Burma is well educated. The portals
of the University of Rangoon and the
schools of the lund have been open to
her for deeud.-s, and she lias taken good
advantage of her opportunities. She
is fond of music, dancing and gaiety of
ull kinds. Life for her, In spite of
her incessant labor In the hurly-burly
of tlle business world, is u round of
pleasure, and she tups her tiny feet
and waves hor rosy linger lips, and
blows clouds of cigarette smoke ubout
her, and laughs ut fortune, bo tt good
or bail. The Uurmoso woman Is uu
inveterul', smoker. Everybody In the
land Ih for tbat mutter, Men, women
uml children puff Incessantly at enormous cigarettes, IK Inches long uud
u quarter of uu inch In diameter, that
would kill tbem If they were made of
pure tobacco, for the tobacco of Bur
mu Is exceedingly strong. As It Is,
three-roiii-tbs of the tilling of the Cigarotto, which is wrapped in a banana
loaf, is composed of hnrmleitH herbs.
The social life of the Burmese wo
mun Is every bit uh Independent us tier
business activities, There appears to
he ilo distinction lietween conventionality uud uiicoiiventtonullty. No chap
oroll is necessary in this lund of freedom. The 80X08 tuke purl 111 the sume
games, attend the same sort of amusements, und to all intents und purposes
are onu. In spite of tbls free comradeship, then- Is little Immorality.
The world  hus been taught  to believe
that the Burmese woman Is morally
lux, but this Is not true. Sho is simple tn her susceptibilities but constant
as a dove to her mate,
Major Richardson, a British army
oillcer, who lives at Harrow, has had
remarkable success in training dogs
for police and war purposes, He uses
Airedale terriers exclusively, having
found that this game, hardy, wlre-
halred breed, the lnrgest of tho terriers, Is best adapted for work which
requires pluck, activity and a high
degree of intelligence.
The German army is training Airedales for scouting and finding dead
and wounded soldiers, having abandoned the effort to train a long-haired
native breed of larger size.
The latest achievement of one of
Major Richardson's Airedales has been
reported from Singapore. Jack, the
hero of the exploit, was bred and
trained by him and sold to the Singapore police.
When the detective station there got
word that a Chinese serving a lifo sent-
■nce in the local prison had escaped
Jack was assigned to the case. It was
two hours after the Chinese had gol
iwuy thnt Jack reached the prison. He
took up the scent at once nnd ran the
man down in a jungle.
This was a tremendous exhibition
of scenting powers for a terrier, but
the Airedale enthusiasts say that this
breed can be utilized for a greater
variety of Held sports than any other
dog. In the Jackson Hole country
in Wyoming there Is a pack of Airedales used for hunting bears, and In
the Southern States the Airedale Is
used for the exciting night sport of
treeing the wary 'coon. It has been
asserted even thnt the Airedale makes
a good bird dog.
This remarkable breed is a cross between the otterhound, a splendid water
dog, nnd the old-fashioned Skye terrier.
Bench shows did not recognize the
Airedale ns a separate breed until within comparatively recent years, and the
breed wus practically unknown forty
years ngo.
He Is an upstanding, long-legged fellow, resembling the Irish terrier in con-
formutlon, but much taller and heavier,
and Is distinguished by a saddle or
blanket that runs in shade from grizzle
to black and contrasts strongly with the
tan that covers the rest of the body
and the heud nud legs.
Tho New York police have some
trained Airedales and police In German
and Austrian cities have made purchases from Major Ulchurdson's kennels recently.
One of the sutlsfactory results of tht

lost art of pedesi rianIsm. with thc

A story which suggests, with a difference, llie theme of Dickens' "Great
Expectations," is recalled by the announcement of the death, lu his ninetieth year, of Dr. John S. I'hene, of
Chelsea, London. Dr. I'hene was a
man of great learning -he was a Doctor of Laws, not of medicine—muny accomplishments and high Intellectual
attainments. He was a mun of wealth,
too, and owned considerable property

Chelsea. For many years lie had lived
alone, with two housekeepers and four
men who came every day to do gardening nnd other work. In a big house at
No. 3*: Oakley Street.
Almost opposite this house, al thc
corner of i'pper Cheyne row, was another large dwelling of quaint and almost barbaric design, l-'or years this
house, which was Dr. Phone's property,
has been silent and empty, wilh ugly
wooih-u boards across the front door
and wooden palisades covering the iron
railings at the sides, so as effectively
to prevent any passerby obtaining a
glimpse into the garden.
Thc house has for many years heen
regarded by sightseers as one of the
curiosities of this part of London. Dr.
I'hene hud caused the face of the structure to be studded wilh miniature sta-
lues of clusskvhcrocs and heroines,
and heathen gods and goddesses. In
days gone hy many were resplendent
with gilt, and were supposed to trace
the descent of Dr. I'hcnc's family from
ancient days.
Dr. Phono's secluded life and the
existence of this great, silent, empty
house, to which he made frequent fur-
live visits, gave rise to a romantic
story lhat lu youth bis life had been
shattered by the death on the RlOmlng

General Thackara, "No sewage is permitted to he discharged into the river

the city sewage farms (ricsefelder),

an area of about 40,000 acres, of which
about ti,_00 acres are leased in small

While the city administration
supervises the cleaning of the streets,
the disposal of the sweepings and refuse gathered is left to various contractors. Some of these concerns have
purchnsed barren and unproductive

and as the garbage contains principally sand and horse manure, it is exceedingly valuable as a fertilizer and filler
for such lands.
"By law and hy municipal police
regulations, householders are obliged
to provide for the removal of the waste

they have formed an association that

"Ingeniously contrived wagons are

in such cases, the dressing should ho

some skin diseases when* there is no

happened to be one, was attached to
General Nogl's Third Imperial Japanese Army  headquarters,
We all agreed that if Ferkoz once
got under lire he would either run or
wilt, for ho waa tho most frivolouB
man with the army. He perpetually
bucked about, volubly longing for a
light. On prospective days of battle
ho rose early, wrapped his hundred-
weight of tense animal spirits In tight-
fitting kersey brooches, donned hts tiny
ustrnehan fez, nnd thus, halt-naked,
would dance a Spanish boloro about

Itul Ferkoz WOB as oblivions of our
disgust as In' wus of the tiger mos-
qultnes that made life dear at balf tllO
price for the rest of us. He sllll
bounded about our successive compounds with the name frivolous ferocity, Insulted every national air with
the same Ingenuous belief tbat he was
conveying subtle compliments, and
wakened us all morning after morning
for a month with that bloodthirsty cry
for battle.
Finally  It  came to  he a matter ot
speculation as to Just how soon Ferkoz
would   fade   when   the   lighting   commenced ami how far he would recede
I   as it continued, for wo all knew that
|   the Imminent conflict was to lie titanic,
'   and even the war-lust of a Turk would
be sated.
Then one day tho dther Ferkoz, tiie
Turk of the battle-Held, gleamed forth.
We were hardened and saddened that
day. The men we were marching witli
were no longer the light, simple-faced
lads wc saw huddled in box-curs In
Japan and penned between decks on
the transports.
Firing from ahead boomed on us and
Ferkoz screamed with dctlght. His
tirst action thereafter gave the He to
General Whltgrave, for he spurred his
horse and left us to guess if it were
still his blue kerseys that danced in
the dust storm ahead.
A few minutes later we overtook him
where he had been halted by a colonel
in charge of a four-point-seven bat
I     tery emplaced on a knoll by the road
side.     Ho   was   cursing   privately   in
three languages, while he was explaining in French, German, Turkish. Kng
lish and broken Japanese lhat he felt
safer two thousand yards further on,
with the Infantry, than he did with the
battery, drawing lire
For tho moment I was inclined to
believe that Ferkoz really would feel
safer ahead, for he tried to explain
that up with the skirmishers a man
ran no risk except from Mauser bulls,
while back where he stood there were
tho vitreous bursts of shrapnel to eon-
fuse one; thc air wuh spilled full of
smokepuffs that concealed the worst
kind of ragged shot. Hut the colonel
knew his orders: no foreigners were to
advance beyond his battery. When
Ferkoz found that swearing did no
good he sobbed. Then nobody was Interested In him.
After perhaps an hour orders came
for the battery to advance. Ferkoz ecstatically hugged the lanyard major.
and, finding the colonel had forgotten
him. ho slipped up to Join thc postilion
guards. He was outriding ahead of
them when his horso got a spent bullet through the chest and went down.
Ferkoz, dtsentangllng himself, 'abandoned his rations and accoutrement,
and ran on, keeping pace with thc canter of thc postilions, lt wns only a
few hundred yards further on that the
relief mounts of the battery came to
Brief. Three of them were twirled out
and killed with a blast of shrapnel.
The next Instant the rear horse of tho
foremost gun went down with his
rider, both done for.
It was then that the Turk came to
life and gloried in the Joy of tils soul
To the right, under a village wall,
the foremost Russian battery had been
dislodged. Overwhelmed at the audacity of the attack and out-manoeuvred
from thc start, it had pulled out an
hour after dawn—all of It that eould

it was smashed in three places, all
vital; In the breech, under oue hub,
and by the tree of the crlss axle. However, It was so inextricably mussed
that only a careful cross-examination
could have told what ailed It.
Apparently this broken gun hud beeu
left as a rear guard, because its barrel,
except for tho slight declination duo
to the shot that angled it awry, was
pointed toward thi! victorious empire -
builders. Under It and around it lay
proof of the most desperate struggle.
Threo of the horses were mixed up
with thc debris, two wounded and
bleeding, thc third apparently unhurt.
Tho fourth lay off at one side, unite
dead. Across the broken wheel lay a
Russian cannoneer, finished, and beyond him two Japanese corpses. All
tho rest of thc eighteen men concerned
In this affair of the foremost battery

Ferkoz dashed on tho scene slmul
taneously with the Japanese sergeant
who hnd lost his rear horse.   Both saw
tho game they were after at tho same
moment.   The groans of the wounded,
Each saw a single thing-—tlie unharmed horse!
Ferkoz and thc sergeant leaped together toward tho mass of death and
destruction; together they searched
frantically for a way to secure that
perfect horso. Ferkoz reached through
tho shuttered wheel, crushing thc dead
Russian with his hundredweight as he
did so, and stroked the animal up and
down his ohest; then withdrew with
a satisfied grunt and Inadvertently
stepped on tho shoulder of a wounded

About this tlmo we rode up and accompanied tin*, delayed gun as lt went

Ferkoz a moment while he showed us

wounded horses were stilt groaning.

men were twisted into the tensity of

Ferkoz und 1, being mounted, rode
off an, hour later to tin* western outposts. 1 had picked up his horse for

brought It on, und again he was Jubilant to find thut he could ride on to
Where tho Japanese horsemen were
reported as being active. With ns went
a Japanese lieutenant, as our guide
and protector, and Muta, our orderly.
Everything was vague. A mist settled eurly over the land and mingled
with the dust clouds that rose, ns
thougli conjured by magicians, and yet
palpably wrought of the passing of
regiments, the galloping of artillery
parks, the clattering of yellow cavalry.
All thc facts we had were vague. Wc
knew we wero part of an army that
might number half a million men,
while It might number a million. Home
said the battle front was eighty miles
long; others that It was a hundred and
eighty mites from tip to tip of the outposts. Home contended that we were
on thc aggressive, others that thc Russians hud hit our centre tlrst and that
WO were now retaliating hy trying to
outflank them on the right.
Ferkoz was In one of his sulky
moods when a column of dust nppenred
on the horizon out of the southeast.
We drew our horses into the knwllang
fields. Tho steady patter, patter of
many feet lapping the heavy dust of
the .Munchu loam was quickly succeeded by a column of graven-faced blue-
coats, rifles at shoulder-rest, on the
dog trot, headed straight for the nearest village, a quarter of a mile away.
The regiment, however, received no
attention from Ferkoz. He was angrily
scanning the village and thc ground
batweeh, Suddenly he dug spurs Into
bis horse, heading hack across the
fields ut rlghl angles to thc direction
lu whieh he had come, and yelled to us
lo follow
Ah I pulled up beside him Ferkoz
rled that thc village was surrounded
by range tinders, which are llttlo while
stakes stuck In the ground a hundred
yards apart, so placed as to give (b
defenders accurate estimates for sight
ing. We hnd been racing away from
the regiment only a few minutes when
tho bluecoats reached lhe flrsl row nf
white stakes. It was probably thc
thousand metre mark, for there they
received their Ilrst peppering.
We were well out nf ramie and cantering on, our horses In a lather, and
Ferkoz again In grent spirits, chuckling and singing snatches of national
anthems. Ho had mnro reason now to
lio happy, for two batteries of Held
guns had opened simultaneously wllh
the Russian attack from tho next village, and from both left and right for
what seemed hundreds of miles, nnd
for whnt really wos forty or fifty miles,
came the intermittent crackle of rifles
and the dull, low boom of tho heavy
Then, to All Fcrkoz's cup of Joy,
there appeared directly In our front,
between thc two villages occupied respectively by tho two sides, the figures
of two horsemen. And they were not
clothed In tho yollow surtout and the
jaunty low cop of the Japanese caval
ryman, but In black Siberian shakos,
their breasts criss-crossed with ban-
derlllos and their saddle paunches Cossack padded.
Liko us, they wero lost. However,
unllko us, they wero also cut off, for
lho Hank of the Japanese line extended
between them and the. Russians. And
they were walking their horses leisurely, so us not to attract attention.
I thought Ferkoz, would faint with
delight. It was no ordinary pleasure
of tlie observer, sueh us mine, but a
real passion which he expressed. As
I looked In his eyes, from whicli all
recognition of common things, myself
included, hud departed, I beheld that
primeval lust for blood which only
blood can breed und which only blood
can sutlsfy; un eternal, smoldering
brimstone Hushing from the deeps and
brenklng through every law and restraint us molten lava brcuks through
the heart of an ancient volcano. I was
as nothing to him. That ho had no
right to blood, tinder thc circumstances, and tbat I know 11, deterred
him not. In awe l dropped behind. No
otic could have halted that inspired
Mussulman whom the furies pursued
and the hourls beckoned on.
With a Macedonian yell, digging his
spurs dooply lnio the China pony, Ferkoz, leaped the low ditch by the roadside and chargod madly toward the
CoSBaGkSi As the pony leaped lie drew
from his girdle a short, keen Dnmus-
ono Miitle which be bud twirled for us

Ferkoz hamstrung the rear horse
with Ids flrst shot, passed thc dismounted Cossack on the gallop, and
reined In behind the second hefore he
could reach a little wood that stretch-
d between the two villages six or
light hundred yards beyond. The
Japanese leaped from bis tough little
stallion when he reached the flrst man,
und I l. st sight of what happened with
him in vainly attempting to follow
Ferkoz with my glass.
Presently the Japanese brought his
Cossack to the road, a willing prisoner;
but I forgot, thnt phase of the peculiar
affair In watching Ferkoz as he returned, prancing bis horse elegantly
along the green kowllang sprouts and
twirling the Damascene bludc.
As he came up I opened my mouth
to ask nbout the second Cossack, but I
remained speechless, for, us Ferkoz
twirled the Made, a drop of blood
splotched from it to the horse's neck,
1 was about to cry "Murder!" when
my speech was arrested, for I glanced
ut his eye.
He did not see me. From him had
departed ull the frivolity of the guy
comrade and all the friendliness of the
man who had shared with me thc same
mess table nntl the same bed for three
months. He wus guzing profoundly
beyond me into the rumble of buttle
which rose through the surrounding
miles like a mighty diapason,
He was no longer the Ferkoz of Iho
mess table. The demon of wnr bad
exulted him, and he sat there un inspired warrior. Before him. could he
bave been turned to stone, millions of
fiery men might have worshipped!
We hurried on to thc village, from
which the battery was hurling shrapnel over the Russian retreat, and as
we approuched its outer wall shells
burst above us. We were crossing
some marshy laud where the water
was up to the horse's knees. I had
been riding ahead with Muta, hut as
we entered the village 1 heard cries
behind. Looking back, I snw both Ferkoz and the Japanese officer had fallen
from their horses ami that their
mounts were down.
Thinking they were bogged I told
the nearest soldiers. Then 1 hnstened
to headquarters, not being interested
in sordid bogging on such a momentous day. Moreover, I was nauseated
with the revelation which had Just
come to me.
An hour later they brought Ferkoz
ami thc Japanese officer In on stretchers. Their horses had been killed by
shrnpncl and each man had been
wounded. The Japanese had been hit
In thc calf of his left leg nnd thc
wound wns slight, but Ferkoz had been
dangerously hit In the thigh.
Lute thut night the surgeon turned
to me with a burst of admiration In
academic French: "Thc Turk!" he
cried.   "C'est marvellloux!"
It seems that Ferkoz had sent the
Ilrst aide on to the Japanese. Later It
was discovered that a bullet had severed the great artery In his own leu

As a plain Inisiness proposition thoy
are money makers, as there, la a good
market for them at prices runglng
from $.!0 to $_0l) a pair, according to
beauty. As they aro a rich man's luxury, one seldom has to cut prices to
mako sales. i suppose in time the
murket will grow less, but at present
there are so many men building
themselves great estates thut the do-
mand Is strong. On these estates the
decorative features of tho peacock
add the final touch to all that Is rare
and beautiful, and once you havo got
the eye of youi* prospective customer
you have little difficulty In effecting a
sale. The peacock seems to belong
to clipped hedges, great carved Htone
vuses, lovely terraces and green lawns,
Tho peacock has stood as an emblem of wealth ever since history was
written, for Solomon had bis peacocks
imported from India and China,
where they were the birds of the
wealthy in earlier lines. For many
years a peacock feather was regarded
as an emblem of the highest rank In
China, Id Hung Chang. II will he ro

Al first I could hardly bollovo lhat
these gorgeous birds were easy to
rear. I discovered to my good fortune, however, that tliey were hardy
creatures that will roost In trees ull
winter long and go through snowstorms as chipper us a chickadee,
l never house my birds, no matter
how near zero tlie mercury hovers. I
thought at tlrst thoy surely ought to
be housed and would not believe what
the experts (old me of their hardy endurance. I was soon convinced that
outdoors wus Die place for these birds
s they coul met ed diseases and beanie   ailing   und   weak   When    housed
The feeding of the birds is simple.
They require food but once a day, Just
before sunset, when they no to roost.
Their diet is made up of cracked
corn, pounded rice, buckwheat and a
great deal more wheat thun anything
else should be used.
As soon us spring breaks the peahens wander about Jn search of good
nesting places, and they are very wise
ln their selection, having a keen instinct for their safety; in fact, full
trust may he put in the quiet peahen
as she is u wise bird und makes an
excellent mother.
When her nest is mude she lays
from six to eight eggs and immediate
ty starts in to hatch them. When the
chicks come out she should be left en
tirely alone, for sho knows how to
take care of them better than anyone
else. I found it wns a great mistake
to try to hatch the eggs under common hens. While I let the peahens
run with their chicks, and they usually
And plenty of insects, I always place
some food for them morning and
evening. This chick food ts a mixture
of prepared game foods, chopped lettuce and hard boiled eggs.
The one warning the amateur in
peacock breeding should beware of Is
wet and dampness, Wet feet combined with muny days of cold will prove
fatal und for this reason an airy enclosure should be provided into which
the birds may be driven when a long,
cold rain comes on. 1 have a big shed,
me side of which is open, but covered
with wire netting or chicken wire. Into this I can drive my birds and lock
them up until the storm is over.
For my tlrst pair of peacocks I paid
$*-G, getting them In the winter at a
bargnln. In the spring the peahen
laid seven eggs and hatched and reared six young ones from this clutch.
During that spring she laid two other
clutches and I had fifteen birds in nil
from the pair. I sold most of these
In thc autumn, and realized $450, one
pair fetching $150, the others trom $60
to $100 a pair. Then fft,ought another
beautiful cock and bred him to a very
fine peahen thnt was one of my own
chicks, so that next spring I hnd
two pairs of birds to start with. From
these I raised 20 birds that season
nnd more than doubled my profits,
making $1,200 clear.
Since then I huve gone In for some
of thc wonderful Java peacocks and
some of the lovely snowy white ones,
uml 1 get all kinds of fancy prices. It
Is really very little trouble and I love
the work, for it Is Immensely interesting. I raised the birds on a place
of ten acres, which is more lhan
enough to give them ample ranging
territory. My only source of trouble
Is thnt they sometimes take to flying. When they do decide to go up
they go like aeroplanes and sometimes land on other farms. They
either come back, however, or are
brought back, as every one far and
near knows they arc my birds, nnd I
have never yet had any stolen from

A rule luld down by Prof. Henry,
wlio made a lite study of methods of
feeding all classes of stock, Is lhat a
mature horse should be out In the

hours a tiny, and should travel from

health; iind a well-fed colt should be.
out of doors from eight to ten hours
a day, and should move several miles,

No one questions the soundness of
such teaching, but mnny, from neglect or other reasons, omit to act upon
tlie knowledge. One generation of

The Idea of flight without mechanically created force Is so captivating
that most people, especially after seeing our artificial birds of all descriptions rise from the ground with ease,
seem to fall to realize the difficulty of
world of ours Is that thc quality of
self-satisfaction is divided with the
greatest impartiality among all nations
and races of the earth. We hold our
sides with laughter at thc sight of a
stranger, and then we check ourselves,
murmuring: "How cruel of us. Poor
fellow!" but ns a matter of fact he has
been holding his sides at us. A Russian who had lived much among thc
Chinese and acquired some knowledge
of their language, gave point to this
reflection by an anecdote from his own
"I was walking through a country
district In China with two English
men," he said, "and for some hours
I had listened to their polite patronage
of the natives. A group of peasants
came solemnly down the road.
" 'You know, they really are a Jolly
queer looking lot,' said one Englishman,
and the other one reflected that it was

way a very good sort.
"The approaching group suddenly
broke Into song, one man singing a
line and the rest joining in after a
solemn pause of half a minute. They
stood aside deferentially as we passed,
and then I gathered the purport of
their dirge. The soloist was singing
lines like this:
"'Oh,  look at the foreigners coming
down the rond—'
"And the chorus, after the pause that
gave   solemnity  to   the  chant,   would
"'Oh, aren't they funny?'
Then there would come •from  tho
" 'Look at their hideous long noses.'
"And the chorus:
"'Oh. aren't they funny?'
" 'I suppose,' said one of the Englishmen, 'thnt they're singing a hymn
of some sort.   It sounds like It.'
" 'Well, Vm giad we aren't mode like

down the roud I caught:

beeauso the living countenance ln most
cases is animated liy a constantly
changing play of emotions, lending oon-
u(merit to depravity and giving a
softening effect that Is advantageous.
Occasionally faces are seen, of course,
which seem shocking in their revelation of inherent brutality and apparent
lack of human finality, but such faces
are exceptional. With the average, the
worst effects are un acquired coldness
of expression, a supercilious look and
an apparent lack of intelligence. There
thero is nothing to make it seem incredible that these persons do not have
their finer and softer moments, when
they may exhibit those sentiments and
emotions which are accepted as marks
of the loftier side of human nature.
But the living face in its relation
to the real character might be likened
to nn expert juggler manipulating the
vnrlous articles of his mystic trade.
Except in moments of revery or abstraction the expression is constantly
changing; it scarcely remains the
same for five consecutive seconds. Et

The appraisal of character by photographic evidence may be as erroneous

there may be a fault in the plate, or
the photographer may lack .kill, but
something of the true soul and character of thc subject Is bound to appear on the surface and to stand revealed to all who see it.
The truth may be somewhat qualified by the fact that the average person In front of a camera is invariably
more or less self-conscious, but in general effect the dominnnt qualities are
at least partially revealed, so that in
almost any photographic portrait one
mny see strength of character, vanity

the case may be.
When photographs are "reproduced"
