The big flower filled drawing room
was brilliant with afternoon sunshine.
Through the open window came the
sound of the trot of horses' feet as
they passed on the broad "Unter den
Linden." Ransome Prentice looked
about him wltb a sigh of satisfaction.
It was good to be back ln Berlin. Thep
he smiled at the girl who was handing
blm a cup of tea.
"So here I am at last," he said. "And,
now, tell me the news. Tou left America so suddenly that I had no chance
to come and bid you goodby. How do
you like your elevation to tbe rank of
ambassador's daughter? And bas anytblng exciting happened thus far? You
see, I hsd to follow just to hear lt all."
The girl hesitated, playing with the
spoons on the dainty tea table.
"There ls not much to tell," she answered sloWly. "And yet there ls one
thing," glancing across at blm. "I
think you will be pleased, as lt is
largely due to your Instrumentality. I
should never have—have known him so
quickly had It not been that, owing to
your old friendship, I already felt as lf
be were no stranger when we met Of
course yoa can guess whom I mean. It
ls not announced yet, but 1 am going te
marry Max von Wltzleben."
The man's cup clattered In its saucer.
"You—to marry Max!" he repeated.
Then, "Do you—do you care for him so
much?" he asked.
For a moment Miss Freeman frowned.    But lt was only Ransome.    He
*  and she had always teased and questioned and confided In each other.   Yet
ahe paused over the answer.
"I—I do not think that I am the kind
to care very deeply for any one," she
«ald soberly. "I admire Max. Yen
have always told me how noble he was;
how brave. And I adore bravery. My
Idea of his character ls really drawn
largely from your letters."
Prentice's lips twisted Into a smile.
"I was sn enthusiastic chap ln those
days," he commented dryly. "I hope
yon have some better foundation fer
your affection than letters written by
a hoy in the university. But I am
forgetting what waa partly my errand
this afternoon. "Buffalo BUI" ls to open
In Berlin tomorrow afternoon, and I
thought perhaps you would like to go.
It ls only patriotic for the Americans
te turn out Should you care"— Miss
Freeman nodded.
"I suppose lt would be the proper
thing to do," she agreed. "I have not
seen 'Buffalo BUI' since I was a child.
They sent father a box, but he does
not care te go, and I had not thought
about lt Suppose you come with us.
I will ask Max, and we can take Frau-
A few minutes later Prentice rose te
take his leave, and lt was not until
after his departure tbat Miss Freeman
remembered that he had forgotten to
congratulate her. For the rest of the
day the girl was decttledly absent-
Bnt the next afternoon, seated ln the
box of honor ln the big open air arena,
Miss Freemen appeared to have quite
regained her normal spirits, chattering
gayly with both men. Von Wltzleben,
precise, neat, with parted hnir and
pointed mustache, sat on her right, and
tbe girl glanced, critically from his
somewhat Impassive face to that of the
American, wltb Its keen dark eyes
and steady, clean cut mouth. The
study of the two men was more absorbing than the show. Her attention bad
wandered from the ring ond the flour
ish of trumpets which heralded the
Deadwood coach caused her to start
The next moment a man pushed his
way to their box snd bowed.
"Colonel Cody would be honored lf
any of the American ambassador's
guests would wish to ride ln the Dead-
wood coach," the man snggested courteously. Miss Freeman, In sudden mischief, looked at her fiance.
"What do you say to lt?" ehe queried
demurely. The German gated back In
horrified disapproval.
"You go around In that coach and
make a spectacle of yourself," he
gasped, "before all these people! Aber,
what a shocking kleu! I could not allow It"
Into the girl's eyee there came a sodden gleam. Bbe had not meant to de
this thing. But ever since her spoiled
babyhood a dare had beeu to her spirit
like fire to gunpowder. She lifted her
"Thank yon. We ahall be glad to accept" she aaid to the man, who still
stood, hat tn hand, awaiting her decision. "If yon are afraid, pray remain
here," she added defiantly to Von Wit-
aleben. "Will you come, Ransome?"
"But"— began he. One glance at her
set mouth showed the futility of remonstrance. And wherever she called
' be would follow, be tbe consequences
what they might In silence he let ber
precede him down the steps, Von Wlt-
aleben bringing up s sullen rear. The
fraulein left behind wept ln unheeded
It was not until the coach had fairly
started that Miss Freeman realized all
tbat she had brought upon herself.
From her childhood she had always
detested firearms. And these pursuing
.ndlsnsl But without flinching, she
bore It all—the crack of rifles, tbe
smoke whlcb choked eyes snd mouth,
the fiendish yells. Then all at once sbe
became conscious that the coach was
swaying and bumping strangely. A
man sitting opposite ber suppressed an
"I told BUI to exercise tbem horses,"
be muttered. "And this blamed ring
baa mighty short corners. You better
held on tight" he added to the girl "lf
thls rickety old thing doea break loose
or turn over," expressively. Miss Freeman felt her heartbeats quicken. There
was danger then-real danger. From
the box came tWdrlver's voice In fran
tic objurgation to the now thoroughly
frightened "animals. Miss Freeman
turned toward Vou Wetzloben.
"Max," she whispered. But the German, his face ashy, his eyes fixed nnd
staring, sat with strained fingers
clutching at the wooden door. He had
quite forgotten tbe girl. A little sob
broke from ber parted lips. Were they
going to die? A strong hand closed

steady, calm, self controlled.
"We shall pull through all right" he
said. "Don't be frightened, dear." The
girl, conscious only of the word which
had slipped Inadvertently from his lips,
caught ber breath ln the sudden shock
of a great revelaUon. Ransome loved
her—Ransome I
All at once she comprehended why
lt was that she had hesitated to announce her engagement until Ransome
should learn of lt, why lt was that she
had Judged Von Wltzleben from Ran-
some's standpoint rather than her own,
appreciated that lt had been the fact
of his Intimacy with Ransome which
had been his chief attraction and how
near she had been to never knowing.
Now at last, in this supreme moment
ehe grasped the truth; knew that even
as Ransome loved ber, so she loved
him. And whether death or life lay
before them, with that knowledge ln
her heart, that touch on her hand, she
was content
And then with one strong, mighty
pull from above tho horses trembled
down to quiet
For a day or so the Berlin papers
were rather sharp ln their criticism' of
the girl wbo had rendered herself so
conspicuous, ^equally well born German girl would ever have done such s
thing, tbey declared. But Miss Freeman, utterly glad in her new found
happiness, only smiled in undisturbed
Colerldae the Soldier.
Subsistence could not be made on the
reading and writing of pamphlets or
the means ot livelihood obtained by
the most eloquent and entrancing of
conversaUons, and Coleridge, finding
himself both forlorn and destitute in
London, enlisted as a soldier In the
Fifteenth (Elliot's) Life dragoons.
"On his arrival at the quarters of the
regiment" says his friend snd biographer, Mr. GUIman, "the general of
the district Inspected tho recruits and,
looking bard at Coleridge wltb a military air, Inquired, 'What's your name,
sir?' 'Comberbach' (the name he had
assumed. 'What do you come here
for, sir?' as lf doubting whether he had
any business there. 'Sir,' said Coleridge, 'for what most persons come-
to be made a soldier.' 'Do you think,'
said the general, 'you can run a Frenchman through the body?' 'I do not
know,' replied Coleridge, 'as I have
never tried, but I'll let a Frenchman
run me through tbe body before I'll
run away.' 'That will do,' said the
general, and Coleridge was turned Into
the ranks."—English House Beautiful,

"We so habitually impute tbougbt to
animals that we come unconsciously to
look upon them as possessing this power," writes John Burroughs in Har-
per's Magazine. "Thus the dog seems
to think about his dinner when prompted by hunger or about his home and his
master when separated from tbem. The
bird seems to think about its mate, its
nest its young, its enemies. Tbe fox
seems to think about the hound that lt
hears baying upon its track and tries
to elude it; the beaver seems to think
about Its dam, the muskrat about its
house ln tbe fall, the woodpecker about
the cell ln the dozy limb which it wM
need as a lodging place ln the winter-

they thought We know that under

The Kraal* Tarantnla.
The My gale tarantula sometimes
spreads over six Inches square, but
more frequently four or five Inches. A
shaggy coat of hair covers the surface
of the great spider. It Is supplied with
six long, bony legs and two dangerous
pedlpalps, or strikers, each armed with
a sharp sting and poison sac. The
strikers are frequently mistaken for
two long legs, and from this arises tbe
Idea that the Creature has stings on its
feet. Two powerful projections, resembling Jaws, protrude from tbe head.
Under each of these Is a curved poison
tang, similar to a cat's claw, but longer
(exactly like those of a rattlesnake),
which may be lifted, extended and
hooked Into tbe victim. A person thus
stung or bitten must cut tbe tarantula
away st once, for the spider does net
seem willing to unhook Its fangs.

boxes.   Look here."
He opened a box of beautiful, costly
cigars, and the odor diffused through

an odor half of tobacco, half,-as lt
seemed, of spices.
"That spicy smell—do you notice It?"
said the dealer. "Well, that Is the smell
of the Spanish cedar. It communicates
Itself to the cigars, and so delicate nnd
subtle is lt that it actually improves
their flavor.
"If we put up our goods In chestnut

Must Revise Cicero—Some of th*
Sage's Statements That Would Hav*
to Be Modernized—Canada Itself
Furnishes Good Examples That Men
Over Forty Achieve Much in All
By this time all the world has heard
of Dr. William Osier's (Regius Professor at Oxford) recent startling deliverances on old age. Some are dl.posed
not to take him seriously, but as the
full report of his actual words has come
from Baltimore, writes J. E. Wetherell
of Strathroy ln Toronto News, there ls
no doubt that he was ln downright earnest when ho declared that men above
forty are comparatively useless, and
men above sixty absolutely so. As Dr.
Osier Is htmself fifty-five years of age,
one ls amazed at his statements, since
he did not begin work at Johns Hopkins
University till he was forty, and now ho
goes to Oxford, on the eve of that period In a man's career which he characterized as thoroughly useless! When
eo brilliant and so sane a man as Dr.
Osier makes statements so sweeping
and so opposed to universal sentiment
and opinion, lt ls time to review our
ideas regarding old age, and, lf necessary to revise them somewhat
In dealing with Dr. Osier's dictum
one has to remember two Important
facts. His remarkable statements were
made ln a valedictory oration, and he
probably indulged ln a little of that
hyperbole which the epigrammatic orator, especially ln tha land to the south
of us, ls permitted to employ. And,
secondly, he was addressing an audience ln a country whose most popular
adjective to-day Is "strenuous"— a
country where young men control almost all the activities of life, political,
social, educational, literary, commercial.
Dr. Osier says the world's history
bears out his statement Certainly the
history of former ages does not. It
was Cicero (at sixty-three) who summed up the world's experiences ln the
matter of old age ln his "De Senec-
tute." Cicero himself delivered nearly
all his famous speeches after he wa.
forty, and his vigorous and effective
speeches against Antony when he was
sixty-two. It would be very interest
Ing to have from Dr. Osier a modern
"Do Senectuto," and lf the calm o#
English life allows him the necessary
leisure, perhaps when he reaches the
fatal year (for him) of 1910 he will de
vote the subsequent "year of contem
platlon" (from sixty to sixty-one), to
a revision of Cicero's standards. Hero
follow a few of Cicero's statement.,
which would, ln the new order of
things, have to be modernized:
"He (the old man) does not do things
that the young men do, but ln truth
he doea much greater and better
"Great actions are achieved by talent, authority, Judgment, of which faculties old age ls not only not deprived,
but lt has even a greater measure of
"Rashness belongs to life when ln Its
bloom;  wlsdow to old age."
"The high spirit of young men, the
steadiness of manhood, the maturity of
old age, all are natural, and ought to
be enjoyed ln their time."
Dr. Osier says lf we subtract from
the sum of human achievement ln action, ln science, ln art, ln literature,
the work of men above forty, we should
be practically where we are to-day.
Let us take a few striking "example,
from each of these fields of work.
Cromwell was forty-four when he organized the "Ironsides," and fifty when
he began to rule England. Wellington
was forty-six at Waterloo. Roberts
was forty-eight when he marched to
Kandahar, and sixty-eight when he
routed Kruger. Kitchener was fifty
when he won his title from Khartoum;
at forty he was unknown. So much
for men of action,    j,
In science. Dr. Osier's own province,
young men have their best chance. Invention, alertness, originality, Imagination, belong pre-eminently to the
young, and hero Dr. Osier's statements
come very close to exactness. Still Edward Jenner, William Harvey, Benjamin Franklin, and hosts of others made
their greatest "hit" when they were well
on ln the forties. To-day the scientist
of original genius who does not accomplish something before the age of
forty ls rare Indeed; but Dr. Osier
should not, because ot this. Indulge ln
"glittering generalities" about all other
classes of men.
In literature what do we find? Milton
began "Paradise Lost" at fifty. Tennyson wrote the "Idylls of the IClng"
between fifty and seventy-five. Browning wrote "The Ring and the Book" at
fifty-six. In prose, Ruskln made his
most Important contributions to English classics after he was forty-five.
George Meredith after fifty wrote what
are considered his masterpieces, "Diana of the Crossways" and "The Egoist." Hardy was fifty-two when "Tess"
appeared. Dickens when he died, at
fifty-eight, was at the full tide of his
wonderful powers. >
Our own country furnishes tfce best
refutation of Dr. Osier's doctrine. Perhaps the most Important events ln the
history of Canada are the Confederation of the Provinces and the building
of the Canadian Pacific Railway. All the
"Fathers of Confederation" had passed
fifty when the union waa brought
about, Sir John A. Macdonald being
fifty-two ;and Sir George E. Cartlor
fifty-three.' As everyone knows, the
gigantic project of building the C.P.R.
la due to the foresight and enterprise
of three men—J. J. Hill, Lord Mount
Stephen and Lord Strathcona. These
men, when the project was started, had
all passed the line of forty. Hill was
forty-two, Lord Mount Stephen was
fifty-one, and Lord Strathcona was actually sixty! One would surmise that
the youngest of the three men was the
Uf* and soul of the movement, but J.
J. Hill, ln a recent speech, declared
that the one person to whose efforts
their success in railway development
was due Was Lord Strathcona. It was
th* pluck and determination and enthusiasm of this sexagenarian that opened
up our marvellous Northwest and
started us on the path of genuine nationality. And yet all Strathcona's
great work waa performed after he had
the chloroform limit-    At the
age of eighty this same veteran, wltb
all the restless energy of a youth,
hurled his Strathcona's Horse at th*
Boer hordes of South Africa.
If Dr. Osier Is a firm believer In his
own new theory, ha should have been
considerate enough to tell panada sooner. A few months ago the free and Independent eleotors of Canada sent back
to Ottawa to rule them for five years
longer Sir Wilfrid Laurier at tha ago
of sixty-three, and Dr. Osle_*n own native Ontario hoi Just overwhelmingly
decided to accept apparently for a long
term of years th* Premiership ot James
Pliny Whitney, who has passed tb*

The Finder,
"The queerest experience I ever had,"
said a young Toronto business man recently, "was with a fellow from New
Ontario last fall. This ohap had been
our guide for three or four years ta
hunting trips up north, and waa a remarkably competent man. He could
scent a deer anywhere within five
miles, and the members of our party
obeyed him aa If he were our step-father. When we went up In 1903 he was
talking all the time about Toronto Fair.
He had never seen it but a relation
ot his had been down, and had told him
all about tt. To see the Fair for himself was the dream of his life. Well, I
invited him to come down last year,
and he came. On the way down he
found a silver watcji on the floor of th*
car, and although ha walked through
tha train seeking an owner, nobody
claimed It so he put lt ln his pocket
I met him at the Union Station, and
as we walked up Yonge Street he found
a quarter on the sidewalk. Next day I
took him to lunch, and as we were going Into a restaurant on King Street he
stopped and asked, "What's that?' It
was a dollar bill, and he picked lt up,
That night we went to the Exhibition
grounds, and, being late, eould not get
a seat on the strand stand, so we stood
ln the paddock and leaned against the
fence. We weren't standing there three
minutes until this fellow from New On

A Public School teacher gives the following experience: "Thla theory of
governing children by appealing to their
reason Isn't all it's made out to be. I
teach ln a primary class, and it's my
conviction that a youngster actually
needs a good spanking one* In a while
for his health. It does cheer up a child
as nothing else will. Here ls aa Instance: .
"One of my boys had skipped his
classes, deceived his mother, been found
out, and caused muoh unhapplness all
around. I took him aaid* and we had a
heart-to-heart talk. Johnny sat still,
looking at me Intently and seeming to
b* deeply impressed. I thought I wai
making great headway and that my little sermon was surely penetrating
Johnny's brain. I never saw a child
who seemed so absorbed, even fascinated, by my Une of argument
"But you never can tell. Ju*t as I

Casey and Mulligan lived in adjoining tenements. Casey was looking out
of his front window one afternoon
when he saw Mulligan go through the

the next night Casey saw Mulligan repeat the performance. Casey told his
wife there must be sickness lu the
Mulligan household, but Mrs. Casey
said no. Ou the third day Casey agalu
saw Mulligan dash out of tlie door und
return on tlie run. Ou the fourth ulght
Casey saw Mulligan leave tlie house
with a skipping rope and go down the
street skipping tho rope. When he returned ho was still skipping the rope.
This was the last straw to Casey's already overburdened curiosity. He
watched and when Mulligan waa out
went to his home.
"Is there anythiu' I cnn do for you,

How a Stagnant Stream Near Chicago
% le Transformed Into a "Fancy Brand."
""There*is'a stagnant little stream in
the    stockyards   district   of Chicago
'   which finds its ultimate outlet In the
i.    South   Branch of the   Chicago River.
• The packing houses have found this
stream   convenient   as a sort of cess-
, pool; Into which they dump that part
of the refuse of their slaughter houses
which cannot by any known process be
utilized in making up their marketable
. products. This refuse consists mainly of animal matter, aud, an this putrefying material in the water gives off
gases continually, which find their way
to the surface scum in the way of
bubbles, the" stream has come to be
known by the name of "Bubbly
Creek." Some time ago an enterprising German perfected a process for
converting the scum into lard. This
process is In use to-day. Bubbly
Creek Is regularly skimmed, and the
resulting product ls a "fancy grade"
of lard. While speaking of lard, let
us take another case. A farmer of any
experience knows that, within a few
days or.a week after the abearance
of chole'ra ayu-ptoms among the hogs,
he Is likely to lose his whole herd.
Not unnaturally, as mundane things
go, his first .thought, on   discovering
' cholera, ls to rush the hogs to the
stock yards and sell them before tnoy
die on his hands. If any reader of this
article should be In Chicago, and if he
should visit the stock yards, He could
see where these diseased hogs are
brought in by the carload. Those that
have died In transit are thrown out
on the receiving platform, and the living are hurried off to the shambles.
It would bo worth his while to Btand
by thfe heap of dead hogs for a little
while. If he should do this, he would
observe that the stock cara are soon
hauled away, and that one or more box
cars are backed In by a swltbh engine.
The hogs—dead from cholera—are
thrown Into the cars, and the switch
engine pulla out with them. Where,
the reader may ask, are those cars go-
lng'to? Now, thero ls an obscure
little town over the Indiana line which
heirs the'Imposing name of Globe. If
thu. packers were asked what they
know about'Globe they would probably say they have established rendering tanks for reducing diseased meat
to grease and fertilizers. They would
hardly add that lard Is manufactured
at Globe ln considerable quantities.

A New York dispatch says:—There
ls only one man 'higher up' in the New
York police department. That man is
located at three hundred Mulberry
street, and is myself." This quotation
is taken from a formal statement issued by Police Commissioner McAdoo
in connection with the gambling raids
in Chinatown, when more than two
hundred were arrested by tho police.
The statement was given out as an
official denial of allegations that Chinese gamblers had long enjoyed Immunity from prosecution by paying
tribute to certain officers of the police
department through a "man higher
up." In his statement the commissioner says that the more money people
pay for protection the less protection
they will get. "Chinatown must obey
the law and keep its money in its
pocket, and understand that there is
one rule for black men or white men
or yellow ln New York." Of tho 213
Chinamen arresttd ln Chinatown only
twenty-one were held ln court. In the
confusion caused by the similarity of
their faces three of the twenty-one
escaped mysteriously. The roundsmen
who had charge of the case declared
that half of the eight-five Chinamen
who secured bail had not appeared,
but in their places were substitutes. It
could not bo told whether (hey were
the real prisoners, so there was nothing to do but discharge the dummies.
Chow Young, tbe chief witness in the
case, was at a loss as to who were the
men he had arrested. He was frightened during the examination when
couuBel for the-accused Chinamen said
he had Just received word from Chinatown that a reward of J6.000 had been
offered for the head of Chow Young,
as informer on his countrymen. Chow
Young turned pale and gave the rest
of his testimony with a faltering voice
and frightened demeanor. After examination ln which the Impossibility
of identifying the majority of the
prisoners was demonstrated, nineteen
of the Chlnomen were held iu $500

And recognized, ln a chowdered form,
Some things they'd seen before.
Whet sought they thus afar?
Fresh loaves aud tender meat?
The wealth of seas .the spoils of farms?
They sought a bit to eat!
Not as the conqueror comes—
They hurried ln pellmell,
AU'hungry-eyed, emaciate,
At sound of dinner bell.
Aye, call it what you will.
The proudest spirit bows
Before that nameless.sbameless thing-
A city boarding house.
In one of our eastern cities a certain family suddenly found themselves
at the top notch of wealth and prosperity. They then began to seek for
the secondary requirement of culture.
A most excellent master was engaged
to Instruct their only daughter on the
piano. His patience being taxed to
the uttermost, the master complained
to the young woman's mother: "Madam, I cannot teach your daughter
longer." "And why not? Doesn't my
daughter study? I will make her
study." "It ces not zat," persisted the
old man. "I cannot teach her. She
has no talent." "Is that all?" his patroness replied. "I am rich. Here Is
my poc|_etbook. Go over to New York
and buy her some."
Stratford, 4th Aug., 1893.
Gentlemen,—My neighbor's boy 4
years old, fell Into'a tub of boiling
water and got scalded fearfully. A few
days later his legs swelled to three
times their natural size and broke' out
In running sores. His parents could
get nothing to help him till I recommended MINARD'S LINIMENT, which,
after using two bottles,, completely
cured him, and I know of several other
cases around here almost as remarkable, cured by the same Liniment and
I can truly say I never handled a medicine which has bad as good a sale or
given such universal satisfaction.

Weakness Is the greatest source pf
Ill-health. Weakness-of tbe blood and
nerves, weakness of action of the
heart, lungs and digestive organs.
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food ls well
suited to the needs of a ".multitude of
people because lt overcomes weakness,
first weakness of the blood aud nerves,
and through them the weakness of the
organs of the body.
It may require a dozen or more
boxes of Dr. Chases Nerve Food to
make you strong and well and send
the thrill of health through your
shrivelled arteries and wasted nerves.
Because Dr. Chase's Nerve Food ls
a creator of blood and nerve force
you can be positive that each box
of it Is at least doing you some good.
Prove this by noting your increase ln
weight as new, firm flesh and tissue
ls being added lo tbe body.
Mr. Leonard Miller, Canboro, Haldl-

Nerve Food and Kidney-Liver Pills did
wonders for me, an-they seemed exactly suited to my case. . Before I
began taking this medicine I could not
do a day's work to save my life. Now
I can work all right and attend to my
business with good courage. This
means a great saving to me, as well
as a pleasure, for I have a two hundred and fifty acre farm and a large
stock to look after.
"Instead of being ln misery from
pain and suffering, life Is now sweet
to me, and 1 appreciate good health
as I never did before. I have said
all tbat I could to my friends and
neighbors In recommendation ot Dr.
Chase's Remedies, for 1 know that
wheu they have cured me they will

A strapping lad of twelve was registered In one of the public schools of
Philadelphia. He readily gave the
several facts called for, but he did not
know whether his birthday fell on the
10th of November.or of December. The
Principal was surprised at this display
of Ignorance "on the part of so old a
child, and he asked how It came to
pass that he hadn't learned the date
of his birth. "I wasn't born," said the
boy; "I had a step-mother."

A funny Incident occurred ln one of
the primary grades of the Lewlsburg
public schools. The flrst class In arithmetic was reciting; the teacher was
doing her best to make a liule fellow
understand the difference between
the measurements of a quart and a
pint. At last the teacher said, hopefully: "Now, Johnny, which would
you rather have, a quart or a pint of
Ice cream?" The pupil, not knowing,
made a guess, and answered: "Why,
a pint, of course." "Why," objected
the teacher, hopelessly, "a pint is less
than a quart." "I know lt," he. quickly
responded, "I don't like Ice cream."

Parmalee'B Vegetable Pills, prepared
on scientific principles, are so compounded that certain Ingredients ln
them pass through the stomach and
act upon the bowels so as to remove
their torpor and arouse them to proper

to bear testimony to their power ln
this respect.

In his article on "The Shameful Misuse of Wealth," now running ln "Success Magazine," Cleveland Moffett has
this to say of an extravagant mother
whose little boy wore white kid shoes:
"This case of a child without shoes or
stockngs reminds me of a story from
Chicago, an absolutely true story, as
I happen to know, of a woman there,
the daughter ot one of the richest men
ln the world. She always has her
little boy wear white kid shoos, and
owing to the smoke of the city and
the bad condition of the streets, she
has bad trouble in keeping them clean.
One day she met another mother who
was alsp perplexed by the shoe-cleaning problem, and she said with a naive
enthusiasm, as if she had made a great
discovery:—'You know, I have solved
that whole difficulty. I don't send little Johnie's shoes to the cleaners at
all nny more. I just buy so many dozen pains at a time and let him wear a
new pair every day.    It's a great Idea."

between St, Paul and Chicago, which
service ls generally considered to he
the best on the continent. Tbe sleepers
are similar to those .operated on the
Golden State Limited, which runs between Chicago and Los Angeles, having library, observation and roomy
sleeping compartments, ln addition to
which the train will carry palace
sleeping cars of the very latest pattern, and a dining car which bas undo
this service a feature. There will bo
no change ln the schedule time of the
