One   clay   recently   when   Secretary  Shaw was dictating a letter the door  loading iiuo his office suddenly swung  <ipea. and there stood -i man with a 44  ;'   /���������alibcr Colt's re\ol*'6r in his,hand.  The  weapon was about :i foot long and was  loaded  with  cartridges  the size of a  man's thumb.    The man's finger was  - on the, trigger, and he seemed ready for  -    business.    ,A   friend of  the   secretary  was sitting ill the office, and it seemed  to him that there soon would be ''something doing." t '  But there was, no shooting.   The sec-.  rotary looked curiously at the intruder,  and the  next  instafnt the latter was  apologizing.  ' "Did you ring?" he asked.  "No," replied the.secretary.  "Tho signal wont off downstairs, and  I thought you rang.   Excuse mo, sir."  "All riyht," said Mr. Shaw. And the  man with the gun retired. He was a  member of the treasury watch. Accidentally the alarm'connecting the captain's' room and tlie secretary's desk  was sounded, and he had hastened upstairs to defend Mr. Shaw against a  possible assailant.        '< "   '��������� '  There is a pearl button at the end of  an electric wire at" the secretary's'"elbow, and if he needs assistance against  assault a slight pressure will bring the  treasury' guard" to''his aid.    ThLs contrivance was installed three years ago,  after  Frank ,IL 'Morris-of Cleveland,  , the war department auditor,  was assassinated in his office'by a disgruntled  clerk.    Lyman X   Gage was  then 'the  Jhead of the 'treasury,  and  Frank A.  Vanderlip was an assistant secretary.  Threats were uttered against both .of  them,, and they imrrtediately prepared  for any contingency.    Each was'given  " a big revolver,'which reposed on a little shelf upon1 the' lid of his desk, and  t then the desks were connected by elec-  " trie wire with the office of tho captain  . of the guard..   But no one ever offered  to molest either official, and their successors r likewise hare been free from  annoyance.���������Cleveland Leader.  rarara econo-Hy  AN   EARTHLY TRINITY.

Happiness.  We are used to feel, to put it'crudely,  that folks who have health and money  ought to be happy. And so they should.  A sufficient income promotes comfort,  and that contributes to cheerfulness of  spirit, and to have health of course  means to feel well, and that is a long  step toward feeling good. But how-far  do we have to look to find persons with  health to squander and more money  than they: know how to spend making  strenuous efforts to attain happiness  and merely achieving impaired health?  If you have health and money you can  usually buy pleasure, but enjoyment is  a different article," and even when'you  have, got enjoyment happiness may  still elude you. Pleasure palls and  sometimes demoralises; enjoyment easily yields to weariness/but you _onr_  got tired of being happy, and you may  be ever so tired and be happy stillf  Happiness is a stale of' satisfaction.  One reason why it is so elusive may be'  becau&o   we   human   creatures   are   a  complication of body. mind-and./spirit  and require for our complete,satisfaction a particularly nice adjustment of  , blessings  and  of ,conduct.    If we  in-  i dulge the body too much the other'ttwo  partners become mutinous; if we over-  cultivate the mind the body may break  down, and if we bestow aU our attention on mind and body, the spirit, ignored, takes a sure vengeance on us for  our- neglect.    It  is. so  difficult .so  to  measure and direct our efforts as to  appease all the demands of our triplicate natures that the sinipler way is  to  regard  happiness  as  a.  byproduct,  give over all direct attempts to acquire  a constant supply of it and simply accept  however much , of  it may  come  while we go about our ,businessr with  such" intelligence' as we can.   We can  usually keep oury bodies -infair repair  if we are not too lazy or too self indul-'  gent.   If we have to earn/our livings  our minds and bodies, too, find occupation- that, is  usually  wholesome, and  the discipline of work done, as it/iisual-  ly is,'for others as'well as for our-'  selves.,helps to1 satisfy the exactions of  the spirit.  .^    i / . __ ���������  "LOST AND FOUND"COLUMN  It is slated that nine of the'most  'successful of modern novels aggregated < a sale of over 1,600,000 copies.

Pronounced    the     Mont     Interesting:  v Part  of a  Newspaper.     ^    " ,*  An inveterate newspaper reader was  overheard to say the other day, says  the'.phicago Tribrrne, after an hour's  strict attention to the news: "The most  entertaining. part of a big daily "is the  'Lost and Found' column.    Some people look at the sporting news, others  for, the deaths and marriages, but lost  articles and other rewards are my particular fancy.  If-you study these 'losts'  you will have a pretty ffair idea of your  fellow  creatures'  common^ sense -and  their ability to hold on to^what belongs  to them.

A popular elopement is in tho purse with jewelry, but  the lightsome fashion with which pocketbooks lose themselves in this sinful  world shows how careless mortals be  and that nobody ever learns anything,  by another's dear experience.  "The   rewards   offered   for   missing  treasures indicate their value to the loser.    Some are quite pathetically large,  others recklessly so.'but a saving clause  is the laconic 'No'questions asked,' and  then I feel tbe'case-is truly desperate  and the watch chain and locket must  have departed under peculiar circumstances. , 'The lady who was seen to  pick up,' etc., Is another., thrilling instance  of   a; loser's^ despair,   for tho  chances are It is mere supposition, and  'no lady' pfeked-up anything.   Now arid  then it is a yellow .headed .parrot that  goes astray to vary "the endless variety  of dogs whose owners publicly sorrow  for their loss.'   About this live article-  there is always a sense of tragedy, and  when I note a 'found dog' in the list I  mentally congratulate whoever had the  kind thought to advertise it and thus  to  put an  end to  the anxiety  in its  home."  "Th������ honorable gentlemen  opposite may scarcely credit,  this,' but it is my 'firm belief  that if a few boxe* of these  most excellent cigars had been  judiciously distributed among  the Boer Generals their sav-  age natures would have been  soothed and that cruel war'  might never have taken  place."-- ' ' *-n "V-~  Tbe   acknowledged   Leaden'  J.

C. McCivctie  --;      Aunt   Mary   Graham,   widow;   who  (   lived on the'outskirts of the village of  liakersville,   was   all   alone ,��������� on   that  Thursday evening.  The hired man had  gone in one direction and the hired girl  in another, and neither was expected  back   before   midnight.    The   widow  worked away at a crazy quilt until 9  o'clock and had just put away her sewing, to make ready for bed when she  > heard the kitchen door open and shut.  Then some one walked across the room  and opened the sitting room door and  entered,' and she lookeil up to find a  stranger present.   He was  a man ,of  middle ,age,  fairly  well  dressed. ' His  r face was not at all wicked, though'' it  had a dissipated look.  "I beg your pardon for this intru-  ',   sion," hesaid as she regarded him'with  .   a puzzledfiook, "but my excuse is that  ' , r have called on business and' am in  something of a hurry.   I want what  money you have in the house, and the  eooner you hand it over the sooner I'll  be gone." ' ' ���������  ,  .  ' "You don't mean that you are a robber?" queried the woman.  -. ; t ."That's .what I am.   I know, you are  alone in the house, and I hope,you will  hand over the money'like a sensible  woman' and not provoke me to anger." '  "Won't/,you pit down?   I shall not  scream ��������� or   anything.    I   have,  heard  about robbers ever since I was;ar,child,  but you are the first one I ever' saw.  You must.excuse me if I have a nat-  . - ural curiosity about the matter.  Is this  your first experience?"   ������  "Not by a long chalk.  It's nearer my  fiftieth." , ������  "I am somewhat glad of that," said-  Aunt Mary. "A man who had just  turned robber broke into my sister's  house, in Taylorville a few weeks ago,-  and I can't tell-you of the mistakes he  made. She<ti'ad 80 cents^in her purse.-  and he took that and left $75 in one of,  the {drawers of the sewing machine.  , She has real solid silver spoons, and  yet he laid them ,aside and took the.  plated. The sheriff said he was nothing but a bungler."  ��������� A  - "I'll "try to clean up things in good  -shape,"   replied the  robber,   who  had  taken a ,seat on the edge of a chair''  - and was twirling his hat.   /  - "Our  supper vwas  over  three ' hours.  ago, but I can bring you^a glass of  ,-milk and a' piece of pie.   I will leave  the door open so that you can see all  -the time. You'll feel better for some-'  thing to eat. The robber I spoke of  drank a whole pitcher of sour milk,  when there were two pans of sweet on  the buttery. shelves before him. He  must have been a very awkward fellow."  The robber nodded his head, and the  woman fetched him a generous piece  of pumpkin pie and a large glass of  milk and maternal ty observed:  "Just' make yourself right at homo  - while you .cat and drink. Did I understand you to say you were a married  man?"  "No'm. I was married once," but my  wife is dead."  "Was that before you became a robber?"  "Ye-j^  "p&m rather glad of that.   If I had  a>T0bbsr for a husband I should a������.\;ays  ' bo worried about him.   Have you any  children ?"'  > "Xo'in," he sulkily admitted. He appeared dissatisfied with the situation.  "That's good. If-you had children  you couldn't be with them much of the  time, and if yon ---���������(��������� arrested they  would foci bad abou; 1'.. I don't want  to ask too many que -ins, but as wo  are here alone I'd 11k.��������� ������������������> ask how you  happened to become: a  "Look here, wom:i:>  money you have in the  come here lo gossip."  "Of course you didn't " she pleasantly replied. "I know c;u>u������h about robbers to know that thoy arc always in a  hurry, but I thought you might take  time to answer a few questions just j  the same. You must remember that 1  never had a chance to talk to a robber  before." ������������������..''  six years.- I've' had three offers to  marry again. The last one is from  Deacon Warner, and I've been considering it. He's a pretty good man. I guess,  but he's got ways about him and three  children to boot. He wants everybody  in the house to go to bed at 8 o'clock  and get up at 5. He wants fried pork  every morning for breakfast and fried  mush every night for supper. He buys  the cheapest kind of * molasses, and he  says that paper window curtains ought  to last ten-years. Don't you think  most any wife would squabble with'  him about these things?"  VI guess, they would." ronlied the robber as something like a grin crossed'  his "face.  "And his three children���������they'd make  it warm for me.    The oldest is a girl  of sixteen, and I've heard she's ready  to throw tin pans at my head as soon  as I step into the house.   You can never  ^be a stepmother,, but you can imagine  what  the' situation  might be.    What  would you  do about  getting married  again if you were me? ��������� Some advise  me one way and some another, and I  lon't know exactly what to do."   '     ,.  "I think you'd-be a fool to do ii, and  now I want to get through here aud  get away.  You don't seem to remember  that I'm here, to rob the house."  "Yes; I remember you said something  about'it," carelessly observed the .widow, "but I, wish you had a little'more  time, to spare. Is it'necessary that you  be. at some certain place at a certain  ��������� minute? I wanted to talk with'you a  minute about my hired girl. Her name  is Sarah Jackson. She's a g'ood girl, but  romantic."  ,   "Hang it. woman!1 I'm here to rob!"  .exclaimed the robber as he rose up.  - .".Well,-you can tell me about Sarah  first, can't you?   And the hired mail-  where are you going?"     i    "  "I'm going to leave."  "But you  haven't robbed  the house  yet, and I wanted to^ask you about"��������� .'  A;id out he walked and left the widow wondering if that was the way of  all  robbers or if he hadn't.metlvwith  some  great  misfortune  to  make  him  crabbed and cranky.

No one predicted the direction in which she  would eventually turn, but when she  was eight her Aunt Mirabel was sure  she would be a great singer. What her  uncles thought is of no importance.  Thoy had little or no imagination.  About the time that her aunt had settled Maizie's career Grandpapa Wilkio  said he had hopes of the child. "She'll  turn out just like anybody," he chuckled.    "See T she don't."   ���������  It seemed that first summer night on  the farm as if grandpapa had struck  the right note. There had been a wonderful sunset. Maizie's mother, with  half, shut eyes, had" compared it to  Claude Lorraine's paintings. Maizie's  father had looked lyrics, and the lay  members of the family also expressed  their delight in tho scene. Maizie,  looked depressed.  "See her!" whispered Aunt Mirabel.  "What exquisite feeling in her face!"  Maizie's parents looked, but it wa3  the grandfather who spoke.  "What's wrong Avith you?" he asked.  "Nothing." pouted Maizie, "only everybody's so taken up with the sunset,,  and I wanted to see the pigs fed!"  Tlie  Quaker'a Retort.

"The origin of the turban must be  looked for not, as commonly believed,  among Moslems, but as a sign of authority and honor dating back to the  earliest periods of JeAvish history. The  term used in the Hebrew Bible for  putting on the bonnet of'- the high  priest is from a root meaning "to bind  round." The words miter, hood, diadem, as used-in the Old Testament, are  only variations of the. word turban.���������  Jerome tells us that the turban has a  place in the most ancient records of  history. The variations as adopted by  Mohammedans are many. Their OAvn  authorities hint at a thousand methods,  of-arranging the turban, which shows  not only the tribe and religious distinction, but even the personal p'ecul-;  iaritieg of the wearer.  An old legend traces the turban to  an act of desperate.courage record'edof  the ancient Levantines. A brave band  of warriors are said to, have' wrapped  their winding sheets round their heads  as they devoted themselves to certain  death to save their comrades on the  battlefield.  He   t&as  Afraid  SV &a\e   Chances  The  Gopher Snitke.  It has. long beenv a question in oui  minds  as  to  how, the  gopher  snake  caught the gophers' on .which he liA'es,  but H. C. Heitzer tells how it was done,  having witnessed a catch.  -Mr. Snake  coiled his "tail over the gopher hole, setting a snare for,, him.  .When the gopher  ,had crawled out. of the hole sufficiently  ,to permit ���������the snake's tail to1 be drawn  , about the body*of the gopher'the'coil'  was   fastened, about  Mr.   Gopher' as  quick,as a flash.        A  '  It was gradually drawn tighter and  tighter until the gopher fell over dead,  the life having been completely squeezed out of him. After the gopher is dead  the" snake swallow's' him whole? and it  is not an unusual thing to find one of  these snakes with' a number of gophers  in him. The gopher is a great fighter,  and if he'Avas not, caught in a snare as  the one mentioned he would doubtless  make a hard fight for life even with a  snake. !>  "Yes," said the gray haired, kindly  looking old , man thoughtfully,' "I,  thought of promoting James and increasing his salary. .He has been here  a long time and has been exceedingly  faithful.

Radiant  In  the   San.  W. E.  Wilson of Daramara,  taking  the^'observation that one grain of radium can supply 100 calories per hour,  has computed the proportion of radium  in the sun which would be required to  account for its output of energy." Lang-  ley calculated that the sun' is producing energy at  the- rate of 828,000,000  calories per square centimeter per hour,  and.  taking this  figure,   it would  require but 3.G grams  (about fifty-four  * grains) of radium per cubic meter (39.37  inches) of the-sun's volume to account  for the entire energy given out by the  ���������latter,    air. Wilson suggests that possibly at the enormous solar temperature radium may be capable of even  more. energetic action, and, if so, the  3.G grams per cubic meter might be reduced to a still smaller amount.
