aurned the trap door aud scaffold and
anuonuced them all right. There were
about twenty-live peo, Ie present.

particularly to see. She gam the chief
a letter aud implore! him   to see that
there woald ho nn stirprlseg in store for

coming. Tbe chief told her that she
had ouly a few moie minutes to live
aud should retract anything that she
had said that might injure others, to
wbicb she firmly replied thut she hnd
not .lug to retract.
At this time Hangman Radcliffe was
patting things In readiness. Thero was
interne stillness which became almost
oppressive wheu Jailer Noxon appeared
at the door. He was visibly affected.
A conple of seconds after Hilda Blake
appeared. She was neatly dressed in
the dress she wore at her trial and was
ashy pale though completely composed.
Two leather strap* held her elbows
olose to her side. She paused nnd
stopped to speak to Mr. Stewart, ber
former guardian, who remained firm
ou the steps, although ordered back by
the hangman. Sbe stretched ont her
baud to him, aa well as she oould and
her voice almost broke aa she said
"good-bye, Mr. Stewart," and kisied
him. Tears were rolling down Mr.
Stewart's faoe.
She walked steadily to the top and
then tnrned and looked searohlngly
into tbe faces of those below. Radcliffe
gently nrged her on. Then she bade
Rev. Mr. McLanrin an affectionate
farewell, kissing him. She seemed
anxious to delay tbe awful climax, if
only for a few seconds. Sbe asktd for
Mr. Mollcrido and be ascended the
soaffold. "Do not think too hardly of
me," she said, holding ont her hand.
"Good-bye." With deliberate firmness
sbe stepped on the trap aud a smile
crossed her face aa Radcliffe tied her
feet together. Her body swayed slightly after the black oap hsd been pulled

seconds tbe form of the poor girl shot
from view.

easily obtained without the lose of tht

agenta can be used over and over
again, being added to the bleaching
baths In quantities and at temperatures depending upon the material and
the degree and speed of bleaching required. In one exaitgile noted si closed

within which time It traveled between
4,000 and 5,000 miles. It began Ita career farther east tban any tropical
storm yet on record. It waa flrat noticed on Aug. 3 abont half way between tht coasts of Africa and South
America, a little below north latitude

summer Mr. Johnson presented me with
a very handsome peacock. He waa a
splendid bird, and the beauty of bla plumage wna tbe wondrt- of tbe neighborhood,
"One afternoon I saw bim strutting
around and malting a magnificent display of his gorgeous tall feathers. Mrs,
Turkey looked on admiringly for awhile
and then trotted over to where the gobbler waa quietly napping under a peach
tree. Tbey were engaged for a moment
In earnest conversation. Then Mr. (Job-
bter straightened himself up, stiffened his
wings, gave a strut, and proudly spread
his tall feathers. Madam gave a contemptuous toss of ber bead and evidently
laughed at bim, I could seo tbo fire In
the gobbler's eye, and told Mr. Boubei,
my engineer, who wns with me nt the
time, to look out and we would see aome
fun. and we did.
"That gobbler marched straight over to
whero the peacock was, still pirouetting
and admiring tbe glint of the sun on his
Iridescent plumage, pounced on him and
never let him up until he had picked out
ibe Jnst feather of that gorgeous tall.

"It Is with pleasure I speak in favor of
B.B.B, which cured me of a running* sore
on my leg. I consulted three doctors and
they gave me salve to put on, but it did no
good. Finally my leg became a solid
running sore. In fact for nearly a month
I could not put my foot to the floor.
"I was advised to use B.B.B. and di<
so. Three bottles healed up my leg en

NELLIE GRANT'S RIDE.
A Hair Itnlalntr Uxiierlence Over th*
Old Colorado Clear Creek lload.
It is related that Nellie Giant waa
once a traveler over the old Colorado
Clear Creek road, now ruined and forgotten. It was���so runs the story tuid by
the old timer, who acted as guide daring
a recent visit to the spot���in the early
seventies that she made n western tour
that included Central City among the
places Visited. The driver of the stage
ou which she was a pussenger wns so
overcome with tbe honor of playing
coachman for the president's daughter
that he imbibed deeply from a private
tlusk, until wheu be arrived at the summit of the hill looking to the canyon he
was, to use an expression uf the day,
much more than "half shot." Feeling
that nothing was too good for bis fair
passenger, he determined that her ride
down tlie hill should exceed the experience of nil -others. Grasping the liut?s
iinnly, loosening the brake with his root
and cracking his long whip about the
eats of the leaders, the descent was begun nt n lively gait, which suou became
terrific.
It did not take the president's daughter
long to grasp tbe situation. Nervousness
was succeeded hy fear nud fear hy positive let-tor. 'IVoteM wns followed hy re-
monstrances, to he succeeded by feminine
shrieks nud prayers i.�� the driver thnt be
slup iiiiiJ allow her ii�� walk.
But her appeals Tell on denf cuts. The
driver was determined that his was to be
tlie ride of all rides���thnt uo honor was
tno great for tlie president's daughter.
His only  reply  was to loosen the brake
nud a renewed cracking of the whip.
Down the hill the stage Hew, rounding
the curves with a wheel bunging over the
precipice-, grazing the rocky side of a cut
l.y a hair's breadth. The roud, liberally
hcsnrlukled with rocks aud finn-wed
with washouts, wns not exactly the
t-uurse to he selected for a record breaking rnee, nml the progress of the stnge
seemed fl succession of huge jumps from
one bowlder to another. Tlie uuhnppy
passengers nt each jump soared toward
llie nmr am) when lulling were met by
(heir seats rising on another tremendous
bound, so thnt tliey litemlly mnde the
hip in the air.
Hut there is nn end to everything, aad
linn Ily the staAe rounded the last curve,
ami with a whoop ami a yell the driver
guided his roaming team into the narrow
Imt level canyon, hc In u great state of
elation, the [uir Nellie in a state of collapse, which lasted during the drive up
to Central City, where the miners outdid
themselves to do her honor nnd where
she walked into the Teller House over

through the Imir on the top of the

A Reflect Ion on flic Judge.
In an address before the Virginia
Slate Bar association James P. Harrison of the Dnnvllle bar told this story
of un eminent judge In Virginia, who
snt on tlm bench wilh his leet up before him. showing his soles to counsel nud audience: "The defense had
offered n little negro as a witness for
their client, ami the couimouwealth's
attorney challuuged the witness as too
young to testify. When the pickaninny hnd been sworn on ihe Holy Kvau-
gelists. lie wus nsked by the commonwealth's attorney what he hnd duue.
���I Bwarod,' said he.
"'And whnt will happen to you uow
if you tell a lleV tlie lawyer roared,
'"My Uiniumy, she'll whip tno.'
" 'Is that all'/' Insinuated tbe defend-
! lint's attorney,
|    " 'No. sab.   De debblc, he'll get tue.'
"And then lhe Judge took his feet
down, nnd leaning over the bench with
menacing linger said. 'Yes, and I'll get
you, too, sir!'
"When quick as u (lash oame the
boy's ready reply. 'Iloss, dni's Jess
whnt I doue said.' "���New Vork Sun.
He I'lHhetl on Sunday.
A Memphis man told of nn lucident
which occurred to him one Sunday while
he was fishing in a lake iu Arkansas. "1
wns having good sport," he says, "and
had catlght a tine string of fish, which
weie in the bottom of my boat. The tern-
periiirue dropped HO degrees la half nn
liQitr, nnd the rniu also dropped hard nnd
fast, just how hard may be Imagined
ftom the fact that the boat began to fill
uot only frum the rnln which fell, but also from the lake water which splashed
into it hy the rain dropping on the sur-
face of the water. The boat filled to tbe
gunwnles, and right before my eyes tbat
string of fish swam off fn a perfectly
straight column, leaving me too astonished to make nny move toward tbeir recup-
nn-.-*."���Memphis Scimitar.
A woman with pale cars can he safely set down as one whose heart Is hard
to reach, while she whoso ears are pluk
along ihe curled I'lnts uml downy lobes
Is a creature of sympathetic aud re-
sponslve temperament.
